elected Calvert County official. This time it was
the Office of Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cal-

The perceived problem was contained in a let-

Barnickel wrote in the letter dated July 23: “Our
audit disclosed that land transfer transactions which totaled approximately $5.1 mil-
lion during fiscal year 2017, were not always subject to independent verification in
accordance with the Office’s procedure.”
In the same letter, Barnickel also noted a response from the judiciary to the find-
ings. A letter dated July 9 from Smith and State Court Administrator Pamela Harris
quickly conceded the findings and promised changes.
Their letter said, “We agree with the recommendation. Our policy has always been

essary, would randomly test and record transactions for accuracy in collection of
fees and taxes, and keep a log of those reviews. Except during staff shortages, the
Supervisor is never a cashier. When the Supervisor needs to be a cashier, she has her
security rights changed. We agree with the recommendation that the review should
be done more often, and that extra care should be taken to ensure that the test review
of a document is never performed by the same person who was the initial cashier.”
Smith, a Democrat, has been Clerk of the Circuit Court for 20years. She is unop-
posed in the November general election and had no primary opponents.

The Tackle Box Fishing Report


By Ken and Linda Lamb
Contributing Writers

The rain stopped, the sun came out, and the fish went
crazy this past weekend.
Spot, croaker, perch, big red drum, spanish mackerel,
bluefish, flounder and rockfish all got busy feeding this
week.
Spot and croaker are in the mouth of the Patuxent for
bottom fishermen both from boats and the fishing piers.
The Solomons pier had good catches of spot most ev-
ery night this week. There were many nice croaker and
perch too. Boaters found croakers and spot in Kingston
Hollow and from Town Creek to West Basin on the 30 Red Drum caught on Capt. Luke Koller’s charter boat Capt. Damon Williams on the Crack of Dawn scored on the
“Rock Star” drum out of Solomons Islands
foot edge.
The rockfish bite continues to be very good for troll-
ers on the oyster bars in the upper Potomac around
Swan Point and in the Patuxent from Half Pone Point
to Broomes Island. Scattered rockfish are active at dusk
and dawn in the shallows eager to hit most any lure.
Big red drum have been caught by trollers using col-
orful spoons below Cedar Point from outside the Targets
to Hooper’s Island light. Bluefish and spanish mack-
erel are hitting the spoons when the redfish are being
searched for.
Cobia are being chummed and chunked up in the
lower bay. Live eels in the chumline are working well.
There is a good run of crabs underway.
There are plenty of catfish in the upper regions of the
Potomac and Patuxent.
We have seen some really big largemouth bass all
week from ponds and St. Mary’s Lake. Bluegill and shell
crackers are eager for night crawlers or live crickets.
