The Strategic Facilities Committee assembled by the Garrett County Public Schools is requesting community feedback. A total of three sessions will be held to provide community members with an opportunity to offer their views on the preliminary recommendations of the Committee, which was appointed by the Board of Education in March 2019. The Committee will deliver final recommendations to the Board in November 2019. Since the community feedback sessions are critical to the success of the Committee’s work, they will be recorded so that no input, comments or questions are overlooked during the development of the final recommendations. Each listening session will be preceded by a brief presentation on the Committee’s preliminary recommendations.

The ONE COMMUNITY FEEDBACK SESSION REMAINS and will be held between 6:30 and 8:30 pm at the following location:

  • Thursday, September 19: Northern Middle School Cafeteria, 371 Pride Parkway, Accident, MD

Even if you do not have children in school, the Board encourages community members to attend and share their feedback regarding the preliminary recommendations of the Strategic Facilities Committee.

Monday September 9

There’s a slight chance of rain before 11:00 am today, then a chance of showers between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2:00 pm. Overall, there’s a 30% chance of rain with a high near 71. There will be a light and variable wind with a low temperature Monday night of 57 degrees. Hopefully there will be more sun than clouds and the rain will hold off.

I can’t believe it is “deep” into September already.  Where did the summer go? There were still a good number of boats and personal watercraft on the lake yesterday cruising around and taking advantage of the great weather late-season.

My wife Jean and I were volunteer pourers at the Art, Wine and Beer event on Saturday. Lots of engaged and happy people sampling various beverages and checking out the art offerings. We always enjoy interacting with the attendees. Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF) and HART for Animals and all the volunteers did a great job as usual.  I hope these two very worthy non-profits also did well financially as I know it is a very major undertaking that takes many months of planning and action.

Sarah also volunteered.  Here’s a photo of her (on the right) and her (soon-to-be) sister in law Jenna Fadely from HART channeling their inner Rosie the Riveter at the American Association of University Women (AAUW) booth at the event.

As the summer season winds down, don’t forget to keep in mind all of the other, non-lake specific activities available to us all in Garrett County.  Here’s a downrange photo of Lisa Schoberg from San Diego (in silhouette) target shooting at the New Germany State Park range this past week. Fall is a great time to try something different “on the mountain.”

New Germany State Park Practice Range

Speaking of something perhaps a little different on the mountain, I think Swallow Falls State Park is worth a trip even if you have been there recently.  Every time I visit I experience the trails and the falls in a different light, both literally and figuratively. On a recent visit just last week, the falls were great and the park was beautiful.  Based on the comments, visitors and locals were also impressed. Even my little grandson Andy was engaged in exploring the paths and playing with things he found (and getting dirty). Here’s a photo of Andy and his Nana on the path near Muddy Falls. Check it out and be sure to take your out-of-town visitors there in any season.

I hope you all have a great Monday!

Farmer’s Market is today beginning at 10am – from the market: “We are still seeing plenty of late summer vegetables, so don’t quit looking for tomatoes, peppers and zucchini – also cabbages, eggplant and cucumbers.  The sunflower bouquets are gorgeous, one of the vendors is offering huge stalks of gladioli and potted mums are starting to appear. In my opinion NOW is the best time of the summer. Last week I made a huge tomato salad (with fresh basil, garlic and mozzarella) to take to my brother’s for his birthday, and I am still “turning” my half-gallon jars of raspberries in “hootch” mode.”

“The “Tow Like A Pro” brochure (developed by DNR and DCLPOA) was published here and was sent to all dock permit holders as well as local businesses and marinas. Take a look, if you haven’t already, to review safe towing procedures for water sports on the lake.

The Deep Creek Art, Wine & Beer Festival planning is in high gear. I am going to be a cashier for most of the day on Saturday — will I see you there? The event benefits GLAF and HART for Animals.

Next Wednesday the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce is holding a Marketing Roundtable event to learn about Garrett County’s new Performing Arts Center from Mary Callis, the Executive Director of the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival, The event is for members only and requires registration.

Is your company considering outside funding now or in the future? Organized by TEDCO, a FREE 90-minute workshop will be held at Rocky Gap to highlight the fund raising process, how investors evaluate opportunities by industry and best practices for raising capital.
