Andy McCarty has become Bob and Jean McCarty’s first grandchild to retire. Andy, a 24-year officer with the Baltimore Police Department, attended a retirement ceremony on March 30 at police headquarters in Baltimore. On April 1, he began a new job as education outreach coordinator for Impact Teen Drivers, a nationwide nonprofit. He talks to Maryland teens about safe-driving habits and the dangers of distracted driving. As a Baltimore police officer, Andy, 48, was on several units in the Northern District. He also picked up a street nickname, “Ghost,” for his surveillance techniques. “My grandfather and my uncle were both Detroit police officers,” Andy told his new employer. “It runs in the family.” Andy, Ann, and their children Sam, Max, and Gracie are looking forward to Andy’s new gig. Congrats
to the entire McCarty family!
On Friday, April 7, the
editor of the McCarty Metro, and leader of the rock band
Brad Savage & the Cockroaches underwent a reverse
right shoulder arthroplasty surgery. This was due to a
fall sustained at home last year, along with years of
arthritis which built up. The 3 hour surgery was a
success, but the long healing process has begun. It will
be 6 weeks post surgery before Kelly can drive leaving
much of the daily household chores and duties up to wife Margaret.
Below are some photos the day of the operation, and 2
weeks Post OP for the removal of the bandages.

Karen and Mike accompanied the Besselsen family on a trip to visit Larry and Gina in early April. The hosts showed the guests a great time, putting them up at their Mt. Juliet home and taking them into downtown Nashville. On the fun agenda: a cookout at home, a Redneck Comedy Tour Bus, Dragon Park aka Fannie Mae Dees Park, Nashville’s Parthenon, Honky Tonk Central, create your own Goo Goo Clusters, duckpin bowling at Pins Mechanical, dinner at Amerigo Italian Restaurants, and more. Jill, Jon, Natalie, Henry, Larry, Gina, Karen, and Mike had lots of laughs set to country music. Great time!

Well after 37 years all good things must come to an end. Gull Lake 2023 will be our last trip to Augusta, Michigan the final tour.
It will be from May 24-26. I'm calling on all past Gull Lake attendees to try to make it out for the
finale. I made the first tee time later in the day on Wednesday because Bedford was doing maintenance to the course in the morning.
Frank once again will be making the rules hopefully they won't be on a three page word doc. Friday at Stoatin Brae will be a scramble.

be playing this year. Good luck guys!

Dear Editor: I recently downloaded "The United States of America - License Plate Game" from the McCarty Metro for a 13 hour road trip. You can imagine my surprise to find "Washington DC" listed among the 50 States. Is the Metro contributing to the dumbing down of Americans' understanding of "States" or is the Metro buying into the "Woke Mob" insistence to make this crime ridden city the 51st State?
ED NOTE: I
figured that Biden would quickly grant statehood to DC, Guam, and Puerto
Rico. That would put us at 53 states, and automatically make
the Pledge of Allegiance come true. We would literally be one nation, indivisible.
(Get it? 53 is a prime number... I'm on the oxy, so not sure
if it's funny or not)
Dear Editor: Radio Host Dr. Laura recently said to me to "kill your father... figuratively". There was a really long pause between "kill your father" and "figuratively". I am an impulsive person and so I acted quickly on Dr. Laura's advice. My question to you is, how should I dispose of my father's body... figuratively?
- Blood on My Hands
ED NOTE: I think you
just are too reactive. You notice that I didn't call the
cops right away when you made a killing at the Immokalee
Casino. Although all your brothers did help you dispose of
the body... figuratively!
Dear Editor: I was recently offered an apple that had remained in a locked vehicle for 6 days in 90 degree temperatures. Scientists estimate temperatures in a closed vehicle will increase by 48 degrees, meaning this apple was heated and reheated to 138 degrees for 6 days straight. Having taken a bite from this toxic apple, should I be concerned about health ramifications or do I have a legal option against the person who offered me this nuclear apple?
ED NOTE: You
didn't know, but when not in use, my Chevy Trax becomes a
large capacity slow cooker and food dehydrator. You
should've went with the delicious banana chips like me!
Sandy and I want to wish you good luck with your
surgery and recovery. We'll add you to our prayer
list. -Brian and Sandy
