    this is exactly what was predicted 20 years ago. No surprise here. Will all 3 counties be merged into Waldorfia?

    I really don’t think there is an escape from it all, until the USA is put back on Her ‘foundation’.

    Waldorf had the same footprint as Columbia and the planning (political handouts) began in 1965.

    Empty, littered strip malls for all and for all don't go out after dark.

    Your sense of humor is, always, fun to read, but this topic is not funny. We lived in Calvert for 20 years, but moved a year and a half ago. My first visit to a grocery there was I think the name was Super Fresh, where Green Turtle is now. When I told the older man that was checking me out that we just moved here..he said ‘where did you come from, how many did you bring with you, and when are you going back to where you came from’. Calvert is a beautiful place. I am sad to see it changing. We left it just as we found it. I miss living on my 5 wooded acres near the water. The run off from Longs Cove was the creek that ran through
    our yard that fed into Cypress Swamp. We found lots of fossils. Miss you, Calvert.

    I wish to point out that all the rural pioneers who moved to Calvert starting in the 1980s demanded all these "amenities". Survey after survey of residents said that more restaurants, stores, etc. were needed. Look at even today, Home Depot, which won't come here nor will Lowe's, is the Holy Grail for many.

    Add to that the fact that Calvert was one of the poorest Counties in Maryland until CCNPP was built, with one of the worst school systems (still better than Prince George's, though), the desire of the ruling families to make money from their properties, among other things, and you get what you have today.
    I liked Calvert County better when there were only two stoplights.

    Moved to Calvert in the 80s and NEVER wanted those "amenities".
