Working the Water by Jay Fleming
"Working the Water" by Jay Fleming is a visual narrative of those individuals whose livelihood is directly dependent upon the Chesapeake Bay, America's largest estuary. The book comprises photographs of seasoned watermen, scenic seascapes, weathered workboats and bay bounty, a true and complete depiction of Chesapeake Bay life.
Fleming has spent the past three years actively documenting the fascinating and rapidly changing way of life of those who make their living off of the Bay's resources. He has travelled thousands of miles around the Bay's watershed and photographed hundreds of individuals and dozens of fisheries with the goal of documenting all aspects of the Bay-influenced industries.
Organized chronologically by season, "Working the Water" illustrates a behind-the-scenes view of commercial fisheries not visible to the average seafood consumer. From underwater shots of the fish in their natural habitat to images of them being harvested, and ultimately processed, Jay's collection of photographs creates an all-encompassing vignette of the seafood industry that is sure to evoke a newfound appreciation for the seafood on our plates.
Jay's flagship book is informative and aesthetically pleasing and is relevant to the seafood enthusiast, the history buff, the biologist, photography fan and Chesapeake Bay lover alike.

A Broken Silence in Vietnam: Stories from the Vietnam War
Genre of book/book: Biography/military history
What do you want readers to know about you?
I want readers to know that A Broken Silence is my attempt to share my Vietnam experience with other people, especially the veterans who fought this controversial war. When the war ended, the country was left with bad feelings and for a long time, no one wanted to hear anything at all about Vietnam. But today across the country, we have seen a renewed interest by many who want to know what the Vietnam War was all about. So I encourage Vietnam veterans to pick up paper and pen and in your own words, join others who no longer feel they have to remain silent. The silence has finally been broken and our stories should be told.
Bio: Ray and Letty Cyrus are both long-time residents of Ridge, St. Mary's County, Maryland. Ray served two tours in Vietnam, the second as a helicopter door gunner with the U.S. Army's 176th Assault Helicopter Company in 1968. Our book includes Ray's personal war stories, from induction all the way to his discharge, and beyond. Also included are stories of other Vietnam veterans we met out in public places while Ray wore his Vietnam veteran hat. The 21 color photos in the book were taken by Ray while he served in Vietnam. A Broken Silence in Vietnam mentions people, places, and businesses in and around St. Mary's County. Since our book became available in February 2016, we have received excellent feedback from many people, especially from the Vietnam veterans.

The mission of Christ Church is to be a community of Jesus Christ's followers, worshiping in the Anglican tradition, proclaiming by our words and lives his Good News to all people, through worship, teaching, fellowship, and outreach.
We are a welcoming, friendly, and family oriented community. Parishioners value a traditional Christ-centered worship. Our congregation views the Church not only as a place of worship, and, as a vital part of the church mission, there is great involvement in various outreach and in-house ministries. Through a multitude of activities, parish fellowship is a priority. Newcomers immediately sense the enjoyment of friendship among fellow parishioners (frequently multi-generational) in a wide-range of activities and ministries. The majority of the members of the Church and friends of the parish are involved in the annual Jousting Tournament, Bazaar, and Church Supper, which takes place the last Saturday in August.
Christ Church is an historic Episcopal church located at Port Republic, Calvert County, Maryland, United States. It is the mother Episcopal Church of Calvert County and its oldest continually worshiping congregation. Christ Church Parish was one of the original 30 Anglican parishes in the Province of Maryland. Burials in the church cemetery include former U. S. Representative Thomas Parran, Sr. and United States Coast Guard Admiral Merlin O'Neill. Christ Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
