Giving Tuesday at Deep Creek Lake

Tuesday, November 29: After the chaos of Black Friday and the deals of Cyber Monday, today is known as Giving Tuesday. In case you haven’t heard of Giving Tuesday, it was created in 2012 as a simple idea: “a day that encourages people to do good” (on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving).

Please consider supporting LOCAL Garrett County non-profit and community organizations as you see fit but, personally, I support the local United Way. I am on the Board for County United Way and I’ve seen first-hand the good work the organization does locally to give a hand-up in the areas of education, income, and health. Also, I joined the local interscholastic mountain bike team as a coach this year and it’s been a lot of fun! The kids have an opportunity to hone their cycling skills, be outside, and build friendships. And, our team has taught me a thing or two along the way!

I’ve tried my best to compile a comprehensive list of charitable resources here. Please send me a message to let me know of any organization that “does good” that should be included on the list.

The weather today will be mostly cloudy, with highs in the mid-40s and a low of 39. Southeast winds of around 5 to 10 mph.

It’s time for Garrett 8 Cinema’s annual Holiday Movie Throwback poll. You pick it, and they’ll put it back on the big screen on December 15. Cast your vote until December 2 by liking the movie poster of your choice.

Join Oakland Library today for a storytime designed for babies and toddlers. Kitzmiller and Accident Library will also have Children’s Story Time. It is an hour of stories, crafts, and activities designed to foster of love of reading for pre-school age children.

The Oakland Golf Club is currently accepting 2023 Memberships! Visit the Pro Shop from Monday to Saturday, from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM or visit golfatoakland.com.

Garrett Regional Medical Center Cardiopulmonary Department Receives Team Excellence Award for Fourth Quarter

GRMC Cardiopulmonary Department Receives Team Excellence Award for Fourth Quarter

Garrett Regional Medical Center recently announced the cardiopulmonary department has been named the quarter four team excellence award recipient.

The cardiopulmonary department was recognized for going above and beyond and making such a positive impact on the cardiopulmonary students from Allegany College of Maryland (ACM).

“The ACM students thoroughly enjoy and prefer to do their clinicals at GRMC to complete their rotations,” said Shelba Ringer, clinical nurse educator at GRMC. “The students have shared how the cardiopulmonary team encourages them to ask questions, provides a great atmosphere to learn and work as a team, and always makes them feel welcome. They hope to be employed at GRMC after graduation.”

This award recognizes teams who foster qualities that help to achieve departmental or organizational goals and support the hospital’s overall mission of treating every patient and each other like a member of our own family.

“GRMC welcomes students from ACM and other schools; we take pride in being able to provide clinical opportunities for students as they work towards meeting the expectations and requirements of the program they are enrolled in,” said Amanda Simmons, director of education at GRMC.

From left to right are Emma Robertson, Allegany College of Maryland respiratory therapy student; Jennifer Droppleman, respiratory therapist; Jason Smith, director of ancillary services; Kimberly Carr, respiratory therapist; Olivia Evans, Allegany College of Maryland respiratory therapy student.

Toll Debt Referrals to CCU and MDOT MVA Will Resume December 1, 2022

The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) reminds all customers that just two days remain in the Customer Assistance Plan that offers a civil penalty waiver grace period for Video Tolls. The plan has been in effect for nine months, and as this limited-time opportunity reaches its final hours, the MDTA urges customers to take advantage by paying unpaid Video Tolls now and make sure they are paid in full by 11:59 p.m. November 30, 2022.

On Thursday, December 1, toll debt referrals to Central Collection Unit (CCU) for collections actions and to the MDOT Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) for vehicle registration suspensions will resume.

Before the grace period ends, MDTA also encourages all E-ZPass customers who had any periods with insufficient funds on their accounts, to check all of their license plates for Video Tolls at Find My TollsSince Video Tolls are recorded to the registered vehicle owner and are separate from E-ZPass accounts, replenishing E-ZPass account funds will not pay for outstanding Video Tolls.

In February, the MDTA Board approved the nine-month Customer Assistance Plan. Since then, for every Video Toll transaction paid in full while the plan is in place, the corresponding civil penalty is waived. In addition, toll debt referrals to CCU and to MDOT MVA were ceased until December 1. As of November 27, 2022, $137 million in civil penalties have been waived for approximately 756,000 drivers and businesses that have paid their outstanding Video Tolls.

Please be aware the Customer Assistance Plan is not toll forgiveness, nor is it an elimination of tolls owed. Tolling remains in effect statewide and drivers are responsible for paying the outstanding toll amount.

Pay tolls now – don’t wait until it’s too late. For customers who choose not to pay their Video Tolls before the due date on the notice, mailings of citations/civil penalties have continued during the grace period and will remain in effect if tolls are not paid by 11:59 p.m. November 30. On December 1, 2022, customers will be responsible for the full amounts of all unpaid tolls as well as any civil penalties, which will be due based on the printed due dates.

Need help? Please reach out to us before the grace period ends. We’ve already had many Video Toll customers reach out to us, and we’ve provided them significant savings when they open up an E-ZPass Maryland account, in addition to the civil penalty waiver. During this limited time, the website also gives customers the direct option to convert your Video Tolls to E-ZPass or Pay-By-Plate, when Video Tolls are searched through Find My Tolls. Drivers who use our toll facilities regularly and accrue high volumes of Video Tolls can really benefit and save.

If you believe you cannot pay all your tolls before the November 30 deadline, please pay every outstanding toll that you can to have the associated civil penalties waived and have your toll and civil penalty debts reduced.

Customers with unpaid Video Tolls can pay by the following methods:

  • Visit Find My Tolls and find tolls using the notice mailing number(s) or by checking all license plates.
  • Mail the bottom portion of the notice(s) along with your check/money order (do not send cash) payable to:

          Maryland Transportation Authority

          P.O. Box 12853

          Philadelphia, PA 19176-0853

  • Use the automated call system 24/7 at 1-866-320-9995 (select Option 1 for Notice of Toll Due, then enter the mailing number on the notice when prompted).
  • Visit an in-person Customer Service Center.

Eric Byrd Trio – Charlie Brown Christmas

Eric Byrd Trio – Charlie Brown Christmas

For over 20 years, The Eric Byrd Trio (EBT), pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr., have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style. Their body of work spans seven unique studio and live recordings on which they shine as a Trio and as collaborators with an expanded 8-piece ensemble they call The Eric Byrd Trio: Brother Ray Band, in tribute to The Genius of Soul icon Ray Charles. On each recording, they take a rigorous, modern approach to standards as well as original compositions, playing with great acuity within the broad and rich jazz tradition.

​“Byrd, Khalsa and Young are superb behind the horns and turn in vintage performances of their own. Byrd throws in a few vocals and I can picture the congregation swingin’ and swayin’ along to the message. Hallelujah!”

—BeBop Spoken Here

“The pairing of jazz and spiritual music sometimes fares well and sometimes not. This album is one of the times where the pairing fares well. Very well in fact.”

—Bruce Von Stiers, BVS Reviews

Times and dates for in-person performances are subject to change based on local and state health regulations.

High School “Influencers” Hired for Play Hard, Live Clean Campaign

Pictured above are the high school students chosen as “Influencers” for the Play Hard, Live Clean campaign. From left to right Shelby Mark, Sarah Hamilton-Rumer, Allie Newman, and Emma Michael. Their role is to spread awareness about the campaign and the prevention topics it addresses.

The Play Hard, Live Clean (PHLC) healthy lifestyle campaign has added a new component this school year. Four high school students were recently hired to act as Influencers, using their peer influence to spread awareness about PHLC and the important topics addressed by the campaign.

PHLC is conducted jointly by the Garrett County Health Department and the Garrett County Public Schools. The campaign is designed to encourage youth to make good choices by recognizing and rewarding them for certain positive lifestyle accomplishments from kindergarten through graduation.

“We chose four Influencers, two from Northern High School and two from Southern High School,” said Kendra McLaughlin, Director of Health Education and Outreach at the Garrett County Health Department. “It was a very competitive process, and the students who were selected have a lot of potentials to take the campaign to the next level.”

From Northern High School, junior Shelby Mark and freshman Sarah Hamilton-Rumer are the Influencers. From Southern High School, senior Emma Michael and junior Allie Newman are the Influencers. The four participated in an orientation in early November and immediately began creating content for the campaign. They will meet monthly to strategize messaging for a variety of prevention topics, including vaping awareness, tobacco prevention, mental health, underage drinking prevention, and healthy eating.

While the Play Hard, Live Clean campaign targets students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, the Influencers will focus most of their efforts at the high school level. The campaign is primarily digital to these students featuring monthly prevention challenges with prizes. The Influencers will also assist the PHLC staff with some community activities to recognize elementary and middle school students for their achievements with the campaign.

For more information about PHLC, visit the PlayHardLiveClean.com website or call the health department at 301-334-7730 or 301-895-3111.
