Jon Hudgins Passes Away

      Jon Forest Hudgins of Davidsonville, Maryland died on Friday, September 9, 2016 at the age of 75.
      Jon was born on February 8th 1941 in Fayetteville, NC to Guy Douglas Hudgins of Beaufort, NC and Hazel Farris White of LaGrange, NC. Jon served his country honorably in the US Navy from Sept 1960 to Aug 1964 where he was fortunate to tour the Pacific Ocean with places like the Philippines, Japan, and Vietnam. He shared a lifelong love of the water including sailing, fishing, and boating with his children, brother, and those he knew, and that tradition lives on with his children and grandchildren. He particularly enjoyed spending his time in Swansboro or out on the Chesapeake Bay. Some may say his love for the water was genetic as he is a descendant of a long line of mariners, whalers, seafarers, and coastguardsmen from Swansboro, Beaufort, and Diamond City, NC.
      Jon is survived by his eldest son Jon Todd Hudgins and wife Tracy with their children Jon Tyler, Taylor Nicole and Tristina Leigh Hudgins of Queenstown, MD; and his youngest son Robert G. Hudgins and wife Christi of Davidsonville, MD. He is also survived by his brother Hugh Douglas Hudgins and wife Colette of Cary, NC. ; His former wife Barbara Ann DeVore of Crofton, MD; and fiancĂ©e Lynn Pitman of Swansboro, NC.
      A celebration of Jon's life will be take place at a future date and will be published on In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The National Parkinson Foundation - Reflecting upon the waters Of the deep blue sea... Our dreams become boundless, And our Souls set free.

Beverly Barber Passes Away

    Beverly June Kingsbury Barber (b. March 26, 1933 Santa Monica, CA, d. September 8, 2016 Annapolis, MD) was proud to serve her country as the wife of 61 years to career Navy officer, Captain James A. Barber, Jr. She met her then-future husband in the Los Angeles Sheriff's Boys Band. He was a drummer and she was his "pom-pom girl".
      They were married in Los Angeles on June 12, 1955, embarking on the adventurous life of a career Navy family. Beverly managed the multiple moves for Navy deployments around the world while raising three children: Judith Barber Joyce, Steven Barber and Susan (Suki) Barber Blackwell. She loved that the family was able to experience living in places like Yokosuka, Japan; Washington, D.C.; San Diego, California; and Pearl City, Hawaii among many others. Despite the pressures of a military life, Beverly always found the fun and positive to focus on, and would, when possible, jet off to exotic locations like Hong Kong or London to meet James for a week's get-together to make up for the sometimes long periods where she managed the home while he was at sea.
    After nearly three decades in the Navy, Beverly and James moved to Annapolis to allow James to assume the Chief Executive and Publisher role for the United States Naval Institute. Settling down, they made their home in Davidsonville where they have lived for the last thirty years. Beverly deeply loved their home, community and life together.
      Beverly is survived by all of the loves of her life: James, Judy, Suki, Steve and her children-in-law Cris Barber and Darren Joyce; grandchildren Anthony Pratt and his wife Jennifer, Tommy Blackwell, Andrew Blackwell, William Blackwell; and her great grandchildren Alexandra and Alden Pratt.
      Relatives and friends may call on Saturday, September 17, from 2-3 PM, followed by a funeral service at 3, at Hardesty Funeral Home, P.A., 12 Ridgely Avenue, Annapolis. Interment will be in Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. Online condolences may be left for the family at

US Ag Sec. In D'ville

From the Capital Gazette
Natural Resources Conservation Service Chief Jason Weller congratulates farmers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed for progress on conservation measures at an event in Davidsonville on Friday. Other officials in attendance, from left to right, included U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Maryland Agriculture Secretary Joe Bartenfelder and U.S. Wheat Associates Chairman Jason Scott.
The six states in the Chesapeake Bay's watershed lead the United States in conservation practices, the nation's top agriculture official said Friday.
Ninety-nine percent of the watershed's cultivated acres have at least one conservation measure in place, a figure U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack called "an extraordinary achievement unmatched anywhere in the United States."
Vilsack joined Maryland Agriculture Secretary Joe Bartenfelder, Natural Resources Conservation Service Chief Jason Weller and other officials at Davidsonville's Y Worry Farm for a celebration of the contributions farmers have made improving the health of the Chesapeake.
Farms have long been a focus in the effort to clean up the bay, whose watershed spans Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York. Fertilizer- and sediment-laced runoff from farms into the bay's tributaries add to the pollution that has created oxygen-deficient "dead zones" in the nation's largest estuary.

Ruritan Donates $50,000 to DES

The Davidsonville Ruritan Club is known for its decades of service to the community. The impact of its latest initiative will be felt for generations.
Hundreds of parents who attended Davidsonville Elementary School’s Back To School event tonight learned at the outset that the Ruritan Club is donating $50,000 to the school to be used for technology purchases.
“During the past year the Davidsonville Ruritan Foundation Inc. has provided 22 organizations with financial support in Davidsonville and the surrounding communities,” said Bob Bold, president of both the club and the foundation. “We also continue to supply athletic fields free of charge for use by the Davidsonville Athletic Association. Although we no longer have a building, we are committed to the well-being of needy organizations lacking financial support.”

The Davidsonville Ruritan Club was established in 1955 primarily by local farmers. From the outset its efforts have been aimed at raising the quality of life in the community. The club recently sold a building it had owned, and is using proceeds from that sale for its donation to the school.

Ben Priddy At Georgetown U.

The following article about Davidsonville kicker Ben Priddy who plays for Georgetwon University (class of 2017) was taken from the web site.

I am a student-athlete (kicker - football) in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. I am particularly interested in opportunities within accounting, consulting, sales, and/or the sports industry (though I remain open-minded to career paths).

At Georgetown, I am an International Business and Accounting double-major and have progressed through advanced Spanish language coursework. My Dean's List and Patriot League All-Academic honors reflect how I have excelled academically in my time at Georgetown.

Academics aside, I have been passionate about sports throughout my life and continue that passion as a member of Georgetown's Division I football team. College football has been one of the best experiences of my life. It has exposed me to a diverse, hardworking, team environment in which I have thrived and enjoyed immensely. In this team environment, I am a member of the 91-person team, and also a specialist as part of a 7-person position group within the team. Through my research I have learned that the team atmosphere is paramount in most businesses. My experience as a member of a large team and a smaller position group prepares me well for the team-oriented culture. At Georgetown I am also the office manager, shift supervisor and game official for all intramural sports. Thus, I also exhibit the ability to work on my own and even manage others. This commitment together with my football team commitment, and my superb academic record demonstrates my discipline.
