Man Injured In Riva Rd. Wreck

From the Capital-Gazette:
A Lothian man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries Tuesday after he crashed his car into a tree in Davidsonville, Anne Arundel County emergency services officials said.
Firefighters and police responded to a single-vehicle crash on Riva Road near Beards Point Road at 7:17 p.m.
Anne Arundel police said Christopher Lawrence Austell, 55, crashed his 2013 Volkswagen Passat into a tree off the roadway while he was driving southbound on Riva Road.
Austell was trapped in the car following the crash, an Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman said. It took emergency responders about 15 minutes to free him from the vehicle.
Austell was flown by helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with possibly life-threatening injuries.

Police said in a statement “alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor” to the crash. The department’s Traffic Safety Section is investigating the incident for potential charges.

Nick Bender--Former Teen Of Week

From the Capital-Gazette:

Its been 12 years since Davidsonville native Nick Bender graduated from South River High School.
Then he was the talented frontman for the local award-winning band Xanthematic. He also wrote song lyrics and one-act plays, plus acted in and directed drama productions at South River. Since leaving high school, Bender, now 30, has graduated from three colleges.
He wanted to develop his talents as a musician and thespian to become a professional actor. He headed to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, one of the oldest acting schools in the world, at its East Coast location in New York.
Though he completed his studies there and earned a two-year associate degree in acting in 2007, Bender decided acting was not the stage for his talents. He returned to Anne Arundel County five years later and earned a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts at St. John’s College.
To support himself while in school, he turned to waiting tables. He found himself drawn into the world of food culture, preparation and presentation. He earned the level one sommelier certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2013.

Eventually, he returned to school a third time to earn a master’s degree in food studies in 2017 at Chatham University’s Falk School of Sustainability and Environment in Pittsburgh. The program, Bender said, “focused on the sociology and culture of food and its ingredients.” While in grad school, he worked with world-famous chef Ferran AdriĆ , founder of El Bulli, a three-star Michelin restaurant near the town of Roses in Catalonia, Spain. Bender was a research assistant for AdriĆ , focusing on beverages for the encyclopedia.
While in grad school, he conducted research on food design anthology, including how restaurant spaces can use cutlery and serviceware like knives, flatware and plates to engage the diner in conversation about food systems and where the food they will be served comes from.
“This is high gastronomy,” Bender said. “It’s primarily about restaurants that are Michelin-rated and offer 30 or more courses.”
He was awarded an Albert Schweitzer Fellowship while in grad school. During 2015 and 2016, he worked with senior citizens to improve their eating habits. At St. John’s, he traveled to Iceland in 2009 and met his future wife, Eir Rovira, who is half Icelandic and half Spanish. They hit it off.
They dated long distance until she moved to Maryland to attend Anne Arundel Community College.
When Bender moved to Pittsburgh to attend Chatham and was working in the university’s marketing department, Rovira discovered she had cancer. She returned to Barcelona, Spain, for treatment and to be with her family.
The couple finally married in April 2017 and moved to Barcelona in June. In July, he designed a machine that converts paper waste from pizzerias into charcoal for the pizza ovens. The project earned him second place in the Pizza Experience portion of the Desita Award contest, an international competition based in Rome. Bender also founded his own food design firm in July, called Square 41.
In August, he and his bride began their “honeymoon around the world,” which included stops in Hong Kong, Japan’s Honshu island, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
On their return, he accepted a position in November as a dining room manager at a one-star Michelin restaurant — the Hoja Santa in Barcelona. In his rare spare time, he books a flight to another town in Europe to sit down at a top-notch restaurant, put a napkin in his lap and order a world-class meal.
