Monday, March 5


Yesterday was bright and pleasant with a few of skiers and tubers at Wisp. May get some winter weather later in the week.  Today will be sunny with a high near 38 and a low near 24.

Speaking of Wisp, we are giving away two (2) vouchers for a one day lift ticket and two (2) vouchers for ski or snowboard rentals OR two (2) vouchers for mountain coaster rides to our loyal readers! The ski/board voucher expires after this season (but we can likely extend for you) and the two mountain coaster rides expire September 30th. Email us at to enter (say which prize you’d like) and we will draw a name for each giveaway tomorrow morning! Conditions apply and DCT assumes no liability.

I recommend “The Dinner Party: Making Waves, Making History,” an exhibit at Garrett College that opens today at 3:00pm (through the 29th) in room 620A and that celebrates contributions from women. This is always a very well-done effort put on by the student chapter of the AAUW and Terry Kasecamp’s psychology class.

The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce’s Business Before Hours: Maryland Elections Preview featuring political analyst Barry Rascovar, will be held on Tuesday, March 20th, from 8:00am – 9:30am in the Crawford Room at Wisp Resort.

It looks to be an interesting local election season, with some real competition and interesting matchups for a number of positions.

The current legislative session is at the midway point. Here’s a link to Governor Hogan’s list of his legislative priorities.

New Germany Sate Park is hosting a free celebration, discussion and documentary film highlighting its past and present, including the role of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the park’s history on March 11th.

In closing, I thought I would share this video. Are you kidding me? Thanks to Sharon at the Adventure Sports Institute at Garrett College for sharing. Think Spring!
