Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone about local No Trespassing areas

There is no parking or trespassing alongside North Patuxent Beach Road in California and there is no trespassing on the adjacent private pier. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will be patrolling the area for enforcement.  

Fishing under the St. George Island bridge is not permitted by order of the Maryland State Highway Administration. In addition, the Piney Point Public Landing, owned by the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County, closes at dark except for loading and unloading boats. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will be enforcing these regulations.

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
