As a local, Autumn Glory is always a weekend I look forward to! I just love the Grand Feature Parade in Oakland on Saturday with the drums of the marching bands feeling like they beat through your chest and the creativity of the local floats and the sounds of those little plastic toy trumpets… we used to live right on Oak Street and there’s just something special different in the air around Autumn Glory.

I used to be in the parade as part of my dance classes, too…. All I remember is that it was a long way to walk!

The Thursday of Autumn Glory is a little sad this year since the Fireman’s Parade and the Oakland Fire Department’s Oktoberfest and Oompah festival are canceled. It’s just feeling a little empty this morning.

Here’s the most current version of the schedule of events for the weekend.

With the celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day yesterday, I saw several versions of this map on my social feeds. While it does not intend to represent legal boundaries of any Indigenous nation, it attempts to show the history of the land we inhabit. To learn more about the ideas behind the Native Land site or the maps, read more on their blog or their roadmap. It looks like Garrett County was originally inhabited by the Massawomeck people.

Here are 5 items to keep in mind to keep your pet safe this Halloween season (from Dr. Caroline Wilde, staff veterinarian at Trupanion):
1. Historically there is a noticeable increase in chocolate toxicity claims beginning now through the end of the year. Be sure to keep chocolates and candies away from pets.
2. Pumpkin candles and decorations can easily find wagging tails and curious noses. Ensure decor is not accessible.
3. Make sure your pet is comfortable wearing a costume (if you so desire) and please don’t leave your pet unattended in its costume.
4. It’s best to keep your pet in a separate room away from the front door during trick-or-treat activities. Added commotion and noise can be stressful to family pets.
5. In case your dog or cat manages to dart outside, make sure they have on a reflective collar for visibility and proper identification attached. Getting your pet microchipped can help ensure your pet’s safe return if it does get out (at any time of year).

The Civic Club of Oakland is welcoming everyone to the 47th Annual Antique & Makers Market during this upcoming Autumn Glory weekend.

Also, there will be a silent auction for a vintage feed sack quilt made in the 1930s/1940s by Gertie Ruby and donated by Pat Moorfoot. The quilt measures 70 x70 and is in remarkably good condition considering its age and that it was actively used by Gertie’s grandchildren back in the day.

In the far western portions of Maryland, reports are indicating we’re at the mid-point, especially in the higher elevations. Through central and southern Maryland, we have a mixed bag mainly because summer weather has been slow to depart. The eastern portion of the state is still mainly green with a few hints of fall color; this landscape remains perfect for pollinators, spending autumnal hours collecting nectar and pollen.

“This is a great weekend to see the fall colors in Garrett County. Many trees are at their peak while a couple lag behind creating a breathtaking pallet. Red, yellow, orange, and green leaves slowly float along the Youghiogheny River after being set free by a gentle breeze.” – Roy Musselwhite – Deep Creek Lake State Park

Do you know your Maryland Counties? Here’s a fun little quiz… I’m not going tell you my score the first time but I’d better brush up on my geography!

As waters cool in Western Maryland, anglers at Deep Creek Lake are finding many coldwater species adjusting in a favorable way. Species such as smallmouth bass, walleye, and northern pike are moving more freely in a wide variety of water depths. Crappie, yellow perch, and walleye are orienting to deep vertical grass lines and can be targeted with small crankbaits and minnows. Read more in the October 6 DNR fishing report.

As mentioned on Monday, the fall trout stocking program has begun in Western Maryland, and will move eastward and continue for the rest of October. Fall trout stocking presents wonderful opportunities for families to enjoy fun and productive fishing.
