Our Summer 2011 Cover
Your magazine arrived today and
the cover photo was extremely
timely. This past weekend our 13-
year-old nephew from North
Carolina was instrumental in helping us rescue a young osprey that
had fallen from the nest and was
not yet able to fly.
With a boat, a deep crab net, and
an unbelievable “lacrosse move”
the chick was back in the nest.
Keep up the good work.
Editor’s note: Good work to you, too, Elaine. Thanks for your
story.—Loren Anne Barnett
Destination: Solomons, Maryland
Editor’s note: Wow. Our receptionist, Carol Masengale, was busy
after last issue’s Solomons, Maryland, story, accepting kudos and
following up on requests for extra copies for members’ friends and
family members. Thanks to all for your interest. Also popular among
our readers was the opening photograph which can be purchased

Amazing things are happening
on and around the Bay, but
there is a lot of work to do as
well. It’s hard to imagine sometimes what we have done to
I also love the very forthcoming, almost blunt commentary
by your president Will Baker.
No beating around the bush
I see a lot of non-profit newsletters and most try to be all happy
and smiles. Good for him for telling it like it is.
Editor’s note: Thanks for the support, Sara. We are happy that
our no-holds-barred stance is striking a chord with you and
many others. Read pages 10 to 13 in this issue to find out
where we are in our defense of EPA’s pollution diet for the Bay.

Home is Where the Heart is
My husband and I have been members of CBF since 1987, and
apparently now, our son Ian is also contributing. We live on a very
peaceful farm on Currituck Creek, which opens into Nandua Bay,
then into the Chesapeake.
Last week, Mark and I intended to fly to Maine for a few days of
vacation. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we wound up
back home, and spent the four days right here on this tributary
to the Bay. We enjoyed it from our canoe, our park bench, my
scull, and our porch, where we ate most of our meals, including
This morning while watching the heron and egrets and sipping
coffee, I read Tayloe Murphy’s article, as well as others in your
summer edition, and suggested to Mark that we send you folks
an extra check this year. Instead of a lake in Maine, we enjoyed
the Chesapeake Bay, so let’s send them some of the funds the
Thank you for all you are doing to improve the Bay. We appreciate
your diligence and fortitude in the face of constant obstacles.
Please keep up the good work.
Editor’s note: Sounds like you had a wonderful four days right in
your own backyard. We are so fortunate to call the Bay watershed our home. Your generous additional contribution is appreciated and will support our efforts to make the Bay a healthy
resource for generations to come.—Loren Anne Barnett
