      Charles Edward Bednarik, Sr., MSgt, USAF, Retired, 86, of Davidsonville, MD, peacefully passed away on the morning of Saturday, May 20, 2017 as a result of congestive heart failure.
      Born on July 24, 1930 in Capitol Heights, MD to the late Charles Karel and Hilda Amelia Radtke Bednarik, Chuck graduated from Maryland Park High School of District Heights, MD in 1948. He went on to join the U.S. Air Force where he served his country from 1948-1971 as an Airman with a distinguished career that spanned 23 years, 4 months, 8 days, and retired as a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force. During this time, he served his country with honor in both the Korean and Vietnam wars. His squadrons included: the 11th Bomb Wing, Carswell AFB; 15th MATS, Dover AFB; 50th ATS, Hickam AFB; 431st ARS, Biggs AFB; 28th MAS, Hill AFB; 19th MAS, Kelly AFB; and 30th MAS, McGuire AFB. MSgt. Bednarik was the Flight Engineer on the B-52 Bomber Stratofortress, the C-124 Globemaster, the C-130 Hercules, and the C-131 Samaritan military aircrafts. After retiring from the U.S. Air Force, Chuck began his second career as a civilian for the United States Navy at the David Taylor Naval Research and Development Center in Annapolis, MD. Twenty-years employed, his career at DTNRDC spanned from 1974 thru 1994. There, he worked as the Foreman of the Fabrication Section. As a first-generation American, he was extremely patriotic and proud. After traveling the world over, he developed an even stronger appreciation for all that is this country. Chuck helped to inspire a new generation to love and respect this great country. He married the love of his life, Betty June Thomas, on October 8, 1951 in Austin, TX. Their long life together lasted 57 years before the untimely passing of June in 2008. Never one to be idle, Chuck enjoy spending time fishing and crabbing on the Chesapeake Bay; summers on the family ranch in Texas; collecting coins; watching NASCAR races; playing pinochle, cribbage, and softball; and always spending time with his family and friends. Chuck lived life to its fullest and shared his enthusiasm with everyone he came in contact with; his smile was infectious and he enjoyed making people laugh.
      In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Frank Albert Bednarik of District Heights, MD, Richard Carl Bednarik of Ft. Washington, MD and Albert Paul Bednarik of Gambrills, MD. He is survived by three sons, Charles Edward Bednarik, Jr. (Susan) of Mt. Holly, NJ, Robert Carl Bednarik (Donna) of Port Republic, MD and Fred Steven Bednarik of Annapolis, MD; a daughter, Cheryl June Woelfel (George) of Mason, TX; a brother, Russell J.

Keith Atchison Passes Away

    Keith Porter Atchison of Davidsonville, Maryland, passed away suddenly on May 14th, 2017.
    Keith was full of life and is best known for his fun loving demeanor, his love and concern for people, and his love for his family. Keith was always ready to reach out and help anyone in need. He was also always ready for a trip, time with friends and family, or any challenge. A graduate of South River High School where he played junior varsity baseball, Keith worked locally in retail sales. He especially liked the opportunity to meet new people and provide service to them on his job. He always went the extra mile to do things for people-from picking up hitchhikers to buying food for homeless people he saw near his job to helping an overwhelmed co-worker while doing his own job. In his free time Keith could be found long boarding, fishing, hiking, driving friends around, or spending time with his family. Keith had the intellect to figure things out quickly and devise ways to make them better. He also loved to tinker with things to see how they worked and how he could fix them or put them back together. He felt he could fix anything for anyone and most usually succeeded. He was an intelligent young man with a big heart who was a friend to everyone with whom he came in contact. He was taken too soon and will be terribly missed.
    Keith is survived by his parents, Carla and Don Atchison, brothers Chad, Brett, Grant, and Cole and his sister Meagan Dupras (Joseph), two grandfathers, Donald Atchison and David Broyles, and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins who loved him.
    A funeral service will be held at the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Annapolis 710 Ridgely Avenue Annapolis, MD on Saturday, May 20th at 11 am. Friends and family may gather one hour prior to service time. After the funeral services, a committal ceremony will be held at Lakemont Memorial Gardens in Davidsonville, MD at 2:30 pm.

Pat Spencer Finalist For Tewaaraton Award

Courtesy Loyola University Maryland Athletic Communications

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Loyola University Maryland sophomore attacker Pat Spencer was named one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award presented by Under Armour, an honor given yearly to the top player in college lacrosse that will be awarded on June 1.

Spencer will be joined at the awards ceremony held at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian by the University of Denver’s Trevor Baptiste, Albany University’s Connor Fields, the University of Maryland’s Matt Rambo and Yale University’s Ben Reeves.

In the Patriot League Championship Game against the U.S. Military Academy, Spencer became Loyola and the Patriot League’s single-season leader in assists, logging three to increase his 2017 total to 55. That mark snapped the 2014 total set by Justin Ward. He leads the NCAA in assists per game (3.67) and is third in points (5.47) heading into the NCAA Championships.

The Davidsonville, Maryland, native is Loyola’s third Tewaaraton Award finalist since its inception in 2001. Mike Sawyer was one of the final five in 2012, and Joe Fletcher was in 2014. Spencer is the fifth Patriot League student-athlete to be named a Tewaaraton Award finalist since 2001. He joins Fletcher, 2012 winner Peter Baum (Colgate), Jeremy Boltus (2011, Army West Point) and John Walker (2005, Army West Point) among this elite group.

In addition to his 55 assists this year, Spencer has 27 goals for a total of 82 points. Last year, he tied Gary Hanley’s 1981 school record with 89 points. The duo are the only players in program history to record 80 or more points in a season; Hanley did it three times from 1979-1981, and Spencer has accomplished the feat in each of the last two seasons.

Earlier this year, Spencer broke the Patriot League record for assists in a game, recording nine in a March 4 victory over College of the Holy Cross. His total tied Hanley’s school record and eclipsed Brian Duffy’s school Division I mark.

Spencer is the first player in conference history to be named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year in his first two seasons of collegiate competition. He was also named to the All-Patriot League First Team while earning two Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors and a BSN Sports/USILA National Offensive Player of the Week nod.

He has scored two or more points in all but one of his 33 career games, and he has 19 multi-goal and 23 multi-assist games. Spencer is the NCAA’s active career leader in assists (3.24), and he is third in points per game (5.18). 

His 107 career assists rank third in program and seventh in Patriot League history, while he has 171 career points which are good for eighth in Loyola’s history. 

Spencer and the Greyhounds open NCAA Championships action on Sunday, May 14, when they take on The Ohio State University at 5 p.m. on ESPNU.

Carter also secured nine draw controls against the Terps, which was just one shy of her career-high. The sophomore currently has 95 draws on the season while averaging 5.94 per contest, both marks rank second in the Big Ten and tie for tenth in the nation.
The Davidsonville, Md. Native has now recorded three games this season with six goals and has double-digit goals in all but one contest on the year while riding a 24-game goal streak dating back to last season. Carter has only been held without a goal once in her 37 games played during her career.

The 14 goals scored by the Nittany Lions during the 16-14 setback to the top-ranked Terrapins were the most allowed by the nation’s 15th ranked defense who has only allowed an average of 9.00 goals per contest this season to lead the Big Ten.

Arundel Fire Dept Seeking Grant

    The company has raised $200,000 toward the remodel the building and they are seeking a matching $200,000 grant from the state for the project.
