For seven decades Fort Meade's inteniment camp has been kept a secret, both to many of the families of those imprisoned there and to the public.  The Army post’s website  doesn’t mention the 30 acre facility that housed hundreds of Japanese, Germans and Italians, most of whom had built successful lives in this country but had not yet become citizens.

FURGURSON III pfurgurson^capgaznews.com  Big, nonnative and hungry, the blue catfish is spreading into Chesapeake Bay tributaries and could alter the balance of species in local waters.  One reason: As the fish grow close to their normal 30- to 40-pound weight, they shift their feeding habits from a little bit of everything to fish only.  That has some worried about what will happen to smaller species in the bay and its tributaries.  South Riverkeeper Diana Muller has not seen reports of the catfish in her river, and hopes they stay away.  “They are crazy, nasty, big giant fish,” Muller said. “And they will eat everything.  There goes our yeOow and white perch and other fish.”  But short of paying a bounty on Ictal-urus furcatus, there is not much to be done about the spreading population. Protectors of wildlife would like to see the expanding range of the species curtailed, but anglers like the challenge of catching them — they put up a fight.  “There are different stakeholder groups,” said Rob Aguilar, a biologist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater. “If you are a guy selling fishing stuff, you might like them. But if you are a bass fisherman, or concerned about the overall ecosystem’s health, you might not.” The fish is native to the Mississippi and Ohio rivers but was introduced to Virginia’s James, Rappahannock and Mattaponi rivers as a sport fish some 40 years ago.  Blue catfish can grow to gargantuan proportions. The Maryland state record was broken twice last year in the Potomac Riv  er. The current record is 84 pounds.  And at that size, they can eat a lot of fish.  “We are finding they eat arthropods, worms, small clams,” said Matt Ogburn, a post graduate fellow and biologist at SERC. “But as they get over 30 centimeters they are eating mostly fish.”  They eat most any kind of fish, and blue crabs too. Bluefish and rockfish might prefer particular fish, but the blue catfish will eat anything that swims.  “That can be a concern when you are trying to bring back populations of species like river herring,” Ogbum said. And there seems to be a relationship between a growing blue catfish population and the native white catfish. The blues can dominate local waters, virtually eliminating other species.  Aguilar said that in some concentrated areas in Virginia waters blue catfish account for 70 percent of the biomass.

Greenstreet is one of nearly 1,000 south county residents who still rely on DSL and dial-up to access the Internet. Others have no access at ail.  Come this fall, that will change. Broadstripe Cable Co. will start linking south county cus tomers to digital cable, Internet and phone service.  The Millersville-based company will be able to connect the residents because of a $115 million federal stimulus grant being distributed by the Inter County Broadband Network, or ICBN.  Broadstripe President John Bjorn said that for the last 20 years his company has focused on serving customers in northern Anne Arundel County. When he saw a chance to expand, he jumped on it.  “It’s not only a chance for us to grow, but to connect residents that haven’t had access to this before,” Bjorn said.
