    Don't forget, the January 6 Congressional Committee is back with another hearing to inform the public about what happened. Inquiring minds want to know! Here are a couple of useful links.

    From Amber Phillips at The Washington Post:

    How to watch the next Jan. 6 Committee hearing and what to look for

    "The next hearing will be Thursday, Oct. 13, at 1 p.m. Eastern.

    The committee plans to show video footage and Secret Service emails that demonstrate how President Donald Trump egged on the unrest that day, even though he was warned there might be violence, report The Post’s Carol D. Leonnig and Jacqueline Alemany.

    The committee live-streams its hearings, and most major TV news stations have been airing all of the hearings in full, except for Fox News. (“In the past, Fox News does play our hearings if the hearing is in the daytime,” Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) told CNN on Sunday.)

    The Washington Post will have anchored coverage and analysis before the hearings on YouTube and washingtonpost.com. C-SPAN will air the hearing in full."

    In case you missed it, you can watch the 10/6 League of Women Voters Candidate Forum here:

    https://youtu.be/kuiTd2pFNYs

    This forum included candidates for Delegate District 29C, State's Attorney, and School Board.

    There was also a nonpartisan explanation of the five questions (referenda) on this year's ballot by Ralph Watkins of the Maryland League of Women Voters. If you find ballot questions confusing (as I do), this video is very helpful! That portion starts around 1:46:00.

    The Calvert County Health Department is now offering the updated booster shot for Covid. This version of the vaccine protects against the BA.4 and BA.5 variants that have been especially prevalent since late spring.

    The CDC Vaccine Advisory Panel strongly recommends that all Americans 12 and older receive the updated booster if their last Covid shot was more than two months ago. Anyone who has had Covid recently should talk to their doctor about appropriate timing of the booster shot.

    Please visit the Calvert County Health Department website for a detailed explanation of these boosters and the science that backs them up:

    https://www.calverthealth.org/healththreats/diseases/cvirus.htm

    Their site is updated regularly, so please go there for the latest information and a link to schedule your vaccine. Shots are currently offered at their Fox Run Shopping Center location.
