County, Sheriff’s Office warned kids of jumping from North Beach Pier

News Release, Town of North Beach


We are asking for your help! It seems the new thing to do at our Friday Night Farmers’ Market is to jump off of the pier. This is most popular with middle school-aged children. Jumping off the pier is not only prohibited; it is also extremely dangerous due to the low depth of water. Please ensure your children are not planning to jump off the pier and that they are aware of the potential consequences.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office is prepared to have children removed from the Farmers’ Market and ban them from returning for the rest of the season if they are caught jumping off the pier.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
