Yesterday was a really nice day. Today’s weather will be sunny with a high near 72 and a low around 51.

Hurry up and get dressed! Why, you ask? So, you can take the guided hike at 10:00am this morning with a naturalist to the historic Brant Mine. The hike begins at the Discovery center and once at the mine site you will see the remnants of a coal mine that was operated in the 1920’s.

Heard that Paul and Naomi Yoder who own the farm next to Heidi’s Bakery & Café (Heidi is their daughter) named their newborn horse after my friend Millie Shilke.  That is a nice honor for a wonderful lady. Thanks folks and I wish Millie the Philly a long and wonderful life just like my friend Millie.

As I write this Wednesday evening, my wife jean is out with some of her friends at their monthly needlework night. Well, you also can enjoy your hobby with some folks today at the Oakland branch of the Ruth Enlow Library from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.

New Germany State Park has some nice programs for kids and adults throughout the second half of June.  And, most of them are free!

School’s out for summer! The Superintendent of Garrett County Schools, Ms. Barbara Baker, has announced Mr. James Maddy will be the new principal of Northern Garrett High School beginning July 1, 2018.

Don’t forget that the Chamber’s Business After Hours is this evening starting at 5:30pm at Trader’s Coffee House (under Brenda’s Pizza). You should be able to pay at the door as a walk-in. I hope they serve Brenda’s famous meatballs, as they are my favorite.

On a more serious subject, there is an Opioid Town Hall Meeting at the Southern Garrett County Rescue Squad from 6:00pm – 8:00pm this evening. My opinion:  I have been very impressed with the response to the Opioid epidemic from our law enforcement professionals, health department and other local organizations. Thanks folks.

I bet you didn’t know this was sea turtle week!  Well it is and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has a nice site with some very interesting information and videos for you to visit.
