Arthur Scores Career


First at Potomac
B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l
By Ronald N. Guy Jr.
Green to Checker in RUSH Crates
Contributing Writer

It didn’t happen on a field or a court; the location was a retrofitted ware-


house overlooking a baseball field. Under the participants’ feet wasn’t hard-
wood, grass or synthetic turf; it was ordinary high traffic carpet. No one was
wearing cleats, helmets or eye black. There wasn’t a scoreboard or clock. No
ball was ever in play, no whistle was ever blown. Except for occasional en-
couraging and tension-cutting applause, the crowd was silent. Nevertheless,
the pressure and competition were real. As every contender received their
next challenge, a nervous hush fell across the room; as each letter was sheep-
ishly spoken, the anxiety swelled.
That was the scene a couple weeks ago for the Maryland Sports Spelling
Bee held at the B&O Warehouse in Baltimore. The competition was for mid-
dle school children (mostly…there was one brave and talented third grader). Walker Arthur drove a masterful Stock feature and 15 year old Cody

We’d like to invite everyone in our community to participate in the annual www.chesapeakebeachwaterpark.com/employment
run & fun walk on Saturday, April 13 in Historic Leonardtown. As the larg-
est run & fun walk in the region, people often ask to what we attribute our
success. Well, 24 years ago we started with 2 goals: Raise awareness of the
Hospice mission & raise funds to offset the cost of caring for those facing a ter-
minal illness. And though over the years we innovated our event to include a Cash Paid For Farm &
Construction Equipment
premium event t-shirt, state-of-the-art timing, memorial bibs, and our famous
brunch, along we way we discovered an amazing thing: this is NOT a run &
fun walk. THIS is a community coming together to support each other and an

organization that helped them deal with losing someone they love. There are
2 truths in life: 1) Every human being is unique - from our DNA & beautiful
idiosyncrasies to the precious hopes and dreams in our hearts.... 2)We are all
bound by the hardest thing we’ll ever have to do; face death - ours or someone
we love. You don’t have to face it alone. Hospice is a team of Drs., nurses, aides,
companions, counselors who will meet the patient and family where THEY
are in life. With compassion and without judging. We invite you to experience
the phenomenon of a community coming together that IS the 24th Run & Fun
