|Dear Bay Weekly:
As a resident of Southern Anne Arundel County, a Bay Weekly reader and an officer with the Anne Arundel County Police Department, I would like to introduce myself. I am Officer Don Clime, recently assigned to the Southern District as P.A.C.T. - Police And Community Together - officer. This position entails meeting the citizens in the communities and becoming involved in assisting them in solving problems and concerns. As a liaison between the police department and the communities, I cover the communities and businesses from the Annapolis Mall south through Edgewater and Davidsonville to Waysons Corner and Rosehaven.
While many people associate police with arrests and traffic tickets, this police department is committed to reaching out to the communities in which it serves. It is the Anne Arundel County Police Department's goal to aid the communities in addressing their concerns in both police-related and non-police-related issues. Many times the solution is not an arrest or traffic ticket but a coordinated effort between the police department and another department of the Anne Arundel County government. Through the combined efforts of the communities, the police department and other organizations, many problems can be resolved.
I would like to extend my services to the communities, citizens and business of Southern Anne Arundel County. The police department, the Southern District Commander and myself are all committed to establishing relationships with our community.
This is all in an effort to make Southern Anne Arundel County a safer place to live, work and relax. Please help me in improving our pleasant community. I can be reached at the Southern District Police Station: 410/222-1961.
-Officer Don Clime, AACo. Police Dept., Southern District P.A.C.T.
Still Grateful for Damian
After All These Years
Dear Bay Weekly:
Thank you for the awesome and informative article on Damian ["Still Rockin' After All These Years": Vol. VIII No. 34, Aug. 24-30]. As a listener in the '70s to Damian & Serf on WHFS, Alternative Rock, I had my two favorite DJs on the world's best alternative rock radio station. I listened to it through college and beyond, even recording tapes for my family out of state.
He's still doing a fine job at WRNR, and I am able to listen to his show in Crofton where I work - but not at home. Give the station more juice! People all over the metro area need him for music relief just like we need air!
