With Alone atop the Hill, Carol McCabe Booker has condensed Dunnigan’s 1974 self-published autobiography to appeal to a general audience and has added scholarly annotations that provide historical context.

Forty short years ago, retirement was a joint venture between government social security benefits, an employer’s pension plan and the savings of the worker. Today, the success of your retirement dreams is squarely on your shoulders. The journey towards retirement begins with that first ever paycheck and doesn’t end until the last paycheck is received. While the end goal of retirement may be the same for a young adult working that first job and the seasoned employee, the path changes along the journey towards that goal of retirement. Join us for a free seminar presented by Joyce Cool, ChFC ®, CDFA ™, CASL® & Rob Ramos, CFP ®, ChFC®, CASL®, Managing Partners and Financial Advisors, and learn what you need to know to put yourself on the path to reaching your retirement success. Register online at www.charlesregional.org/seminars or by calling 301-609-4132.

Register for the National Issues Forum discussion

National Issues Forums (NIF) is a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. It is rooted in the simple notion that people need to come together to reason and talk—to deliberate about common problems.

What Should We Do About the Opioid Epidemic?
Drug abuse, a problem the United States has faced for decades, has taken a sharply more lethal turn with the rise of opioids—both legal pain-killers, such as oxycodone and fentanyl, and illegal ones like heroin. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50.


More than 64,000 Americans were killed by drug overdoses in 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That is worse than the death toll at the peak of the HIV epidemic in 1995 and more than the number of US combat deaths in the entire Vietnam War. At least two-thirds of those 2016 drug deaths were caused by opioids.

This National Issues Forum will present three options for deliberation. Each option is based on differing views about what we hold most valuable. Each represents a general direction and suggests a number of actions that can be carried out by different people or groups.

Option 1: Focus on Treatment for All
Option 2: Focus on Enforcement
Option 3: Focus on Individual Choice

Check out a copy of the guidebook from the Library in advance and come ready to discuss!
This is a Choose Civility Southern Maryland event.
