Downstream in Time

Dear Bay Weekly:
Thinking of your “Way Downstream” heading: On a kayak trip down the Susquehanna River 11 years ago, I was talking with a Wilks-Barre resident who asked, “Are they mad at us down there?” meaning down where I was doing ministry on the South River.

So much pollution from erosion to acid mine drainage has gone down the Sus. My thought was, “Will they be mad at us down there in time?” — future generations, that is — for what we have basically ignored until it is so late, hopefully not too late.

—Rick Edmund, Smith Island

Looking for Markley Boats

Dear Bay Weekly:
I have been trying to get information on Markley boats. I find reference to them everywhere but so far have been unable to get a line on the actual company. I am researching dead-rise boats and would like to contact Markley for information on their products. Can you give me an address, web site, e-mail address or a phone number to contact them?

—J.R. Triggs, Lanham, via email

Editor’s note: Bay Weekly does not have the answer, but perhaps our readers do. E-mail [email protected].

Reporter Steele’s (Almost) All Right

Dear Bay Weekly:
All my friends and I enjoyed Carrie Steele’s article about me, “Home is What the Heart Is” [Vol. xiii, No. 24; June 16]. Like a good student, Carrie was able not only to write about what I said but extend beyond our interview to write about what I intended. The only mistake I found was that the house does not face southwest but south. A southwesterly facing solar house would overheat very badly in the summer.

—Richard Crenshaw, Shady Side

In Search of Chesapeake Music Hall

Dear Bay Weekly:
I have been searching the Internet for answers and found your website. It is very informative and enjoyable and since we live in the twin rivers area, I’m sure we’ll find it very helpful.

My godson gave me a gift card for Christmas to Chesapeake Music Hall. We saw they were planning to do Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and I called to make reservations. The number is disconnected. My husband went by and saw an empty building. Did they move or what happened?

—Linda Alcorn, via email
Editor’s note: Chesapeake Music Hall took its final bow December 26, 2004, after a run of nine years and eleven months. The defunct organization has filed for bankruptcy, so I fear your godson’s gift can never be collected.
