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’.
IF WE DO NOT STOP THE INTRUSION OF FOREIGN PEOPLES INTO THIS COUNTRY WE WILL SOON RUN OUT OF ROOM AND THEN WHAT WILL THEY PASS LAWS TO LET PEOPLE BUILD HOMES IN NATIONAL PARKS,FORREST...ETC..ETC:patriot::patriot:

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’. :lol: 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.

Don't forget. And now Dominion. You are so correct about the ruling families though. Such as the Glasscocks, Weems, Goldsteins, Trumans, and so many more. Greed, back room deals, favoritism, special treatments, etc. from these families have made Calvert what it is today.

One of the big draws back then also was the piggyback tax for Calvert county was 20% versus 50% in St. Mary's and Charles. Once the bridge opened in 1977, the landscape of Calvert changed drastically as people flooded in for cheaper taxes and lower home prices.

When I accompanied my wife down here in late August 2012 to start the job at NAVAIR, drove around a bit.
Decided then that fighting the traffic was not worth living across the bridge from the job.

It's been downhill since Reb's closed..
OMG! "Ol Reb's Bar and Grill. Knew some lovely ladies that worked there. Much much better place than Choo Choo's lounge. Clyde had the best place. And if you wanted crabs, just walk to the other end of the building to Ted's Seafood. Fresh steamed crabs cooked in large steam kettle pots while you wait. Or, super fresh crab meat from the ladies upstairs picked and packed daily. Those were the days. Regulation has ruined everything.

Isn't this the place that was set on fire?
