The weekend was cooler and a bit blustery, but was quite nice. Snow is likely, mainly before 10:00 am this morning, with an accumulation of an inch or less forecast. The day will then turn partly sunny, with a high near 35. There will be a northwest wind of 5 to 10 mph. Looks like we still need those coats!

We just received some information on slope-side lighting and closures regarding Wisp from one of their ski patrol folks. Lift one is already closed and there is no more night skiing through Thursday. There will be night skiing Friday, March 22nd and Saturday, March 23rd on the front-side only. Starting March 24th, night skiing is done for the season. North Camp closes today for the season and East Ridge closes for the season on Monday, March 25th. Please contact Wisp directly to confirm and get more detailed information.

Need needlework?  The Needlework Group is meeting at both the Kitzmiller branch and the Oakland branches of the Ruth Enlow library this evening.  Open to all and you can work any kind of needlework you wish to during these sessions. Fun and relaxing.

Congratulations go out to Southern Garrett High School Wrestling, who are state champs after a 39 – 0 season!  Congratulations are also in order for the SHS Basketball team, which made it to the state championship game this weekend, falling to lake Clifton 64 – 46.  Well done and very impressive.

Did you know that “blowing” or placing grass clippings onto the road can be dangerous and possibly illegal in some areas?  As the weather turns toward Spring and yard work, we thought we would mention it and also include a link to an article that ran late last summer.

Our congratulations to Judy Carbone of HART for Animals and numerous other endeavors in Garrett County for Being included in the 2019 Top 100 Women in Maryland as compiled by The Maryland Daily Record. Thanks for all you do to better our community Judy.

On a negative note, I want to offer condolences publicly to my business partner and co-owner of Deep Creek Times, Sarah Myers, and all in her family. Sarah lost her dear Pap on Friday. Mr. Ritchie had a full life and the love of his family and will be greatly missed.
