PRINCE FREDERICK, MD - Sheriff Mike Evans recently nominated Michael Baxter of Owings for a commendation for his heroic act on July 29 of this year. Mr. Baxter came upon a vehicle engulfed in flames on Md. Rt. 4 in Huntingtown. He immediately, at great personal risk, opened the vehicle door and pulled the driver, Kerri Ann Stallings, to safety. On August 31 the Calvert County Commissioners presented Mr. Baxter with a proclamation paying tribute to his brave and heroic actions.
