Tuesday February 11

After a rainy Monday, the weather for today will be rainy, with showers, mainly before noon, then a chance of rain after 2:00 pm. High near 43 and a low around 26.

Don’t forget that today is municipal election day for citizens of Friendsville.  Polls are scheduled to be open from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.   Running for one of the three open council seats are incumbents Pamela Humberson, Edward Kelley and Julia Sines. Also running is James Hook. Good luck to the candidates and be sure to vote if you are a resident of Friendsville.

It’s Ladies Lounge Day at Sipside Lounge in Oakalnd.  They have 25% off wine, unlimited chocolate and prizes.  Check it out. After, or before you stop for a drink, consider going to Southern High School to watch the Boys Team take on Notre Dame starting at 6:00 pm.

The Board of County Commissioners have announced the agenda for their next public meeting which will be held a week from today (February 18th). Some good topics on the agenda and note it starts at 5:30 pm and will be held in the Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department and not the courthouse in Oakland!

Review request: For anyone interested in Meshach Browning (or pioneer-era western MD history for that matter), please take a look at the draft tri-fold brochure in this post’s images below and let the Lions Club know if you see any issues, especially with historical accuracy. These brochures will be distributed as part of a community-based art project, and then probably the remainder provided to the visitor’s center and at the Meshach Browning trailhead. Comments can be done via Facebook messenger or email Chris Nichols at dimesy23@gmail.com.Thanks!
