13  Cold Cases – Solved! Book Signing

Sapore di Mare Restaurant, 504 Joppa Farm Road, 4-6pm. The late Sergeant Deputy Bill Van Horn will be honored in a new edition in the Mid-Atlantic Murder Mysteries series, titled "Cold Cases--Solved!". Authored by Krist Boardman, a Joppatowne resident and writer. Dep. Van Horn was a resident of Joppa who died in 1991. His widow Ellen and other members of her family will be present for the dedication and signing. Many members of law enforcement, both retired and active duty, are being invited to the event. Members of the general public are also invited to attend. The cold case that Van Horn was involved with was published by Official Detective Magazine in late 1979. It was titled, "Ten Year Trackdown of the Maryland Killers." The case originated with the murder of a cab fleet owner from Aberdeen MD, Raymond Budnick, who was found shot in his cab that had driven into the Old Bay Farm owned by then Senator William James. With few leads that went anywhere, Van Horn inherited the case from other investigators who had moved on to other duties. But Van Horn, nicknamed "Bulldog" by those who knew him and his work, would not give up and continued to work leads from the old Aberdeen Gang that congregated at a town pool hall. Van Horn traveled to North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and California to track down leads and witnesses. The result was convictions of two of the perpetrators, who oddly enough planned the crime for the purposes of robbery but failed to take the victim's money which was more than $2,000 in cash. For this difficult, persistent and ultimately successful investigation, Van Horn was subsequently named the Official Detective Group's "Master Detective of the Month." Meet Author Krist Boardman. Open to the Public. This is a FREE Event!

Redding, J.D., and Harford County Sheriff L. Jesse Bane. According to members of the Deer Creek Friends Meeting Peace and Social  Concerns Committee,  “We lead the world in the number of citizens we have imprisoned.  Over the past 30 years our ineffective war on drugs has resulted in the jailing of thousands of poor people, especially those of color, for minor drug infractions whose sentences are out of proportion compared to their drug use.  It has created an underclass which has difficulty finding jobs and housing, or coming close to realizing its talents and potential, a great loss to our society.  We now have for-profit prisons with little accountability, an overwhelmed court system, and police who are hampered in their efforts to fight serious crime.   Our current justice system imposes a heavy moral, social and economic burden on all of us.  We seek to raise awareness of this issue.” A tradition among Darlington area churches, the Community Breakfast is open to all and offers a program of community interest with a spiritual basis.  The complimentary breakfast will be served from 8:30-9:15am, followed by a short presentation by the panelists who primarily want to hear views from local residents.

Chesapeake Arts Center, Studio 194 Theatre, 194 Hammonds Lane, Brooklyn Park, 3pm. Presented by The Chesapeake Arts Center. Doors open 2:30pm. Show 3pm. Everyone in the jazz scene today who has heard Kristin Callahan is in agreement--her voice is fresh, vibrant, and one to watch in the years to come. Kristin has that rare ability to coax listeners into the anticipation of each note, enticing people into the very soul of the music. Quiet and unassuming, Callahan has a stage presence that is both sweet and sexy, one that catches everyone off guard and then keeps them there until the very last note. From her lovely smiles between songs to her flawless execution of some of the most demanding pieces, Kristin exudes the perfect combination of country charm and urbane hipness. Kristin has been singing since she could speak, and she was fortunate to have her church and school community recognize her talent and encourage her to develop it over the years. As a young artist, she received a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music summer program. In the decade since, Kristin has been actively performing, being featured on many electronic artists’ albums in the DC/Baltimore area and performing throughout the region. She spent many years exploring different genres, until she discovered a love for jazz. In 2009, while recording her first album, “A New Love”, she met Vince Evans, prolific teacher and pianist, and began to study under him. Evans’ mentorship has continued to be an inspiration to Kristin. Today, Kristin is fully focused on her art, mesmerizing listeners with a contribution to jazz that is entirely her own. She has been recording and performing with several accomplished musicians, and has just completed her second album, “One Magic Day,” which includes many phenomenal musicians, such as the remarkable vibraphonist Warren Wolf, as well as Eric Wheeler, JC Jefferson Jr. and Vince Evans.
