The annual Garrett County Jobs Fair is being held this afternoon starting at 1:00 pm at the CARC on the Garrett College campus.  I heard there are over 50 employers that will be present looking for employees for all sorts of positions and for all levels, including seasonal jobs at the lake.

Looks like they are doing roadwork (repaving) on 219 a couple of miles south of Glendale road.  It ends (or starts, if you are coming north) about where the Dental Health Group office is on 219.  Yesterday afternoon delays were at about 15 minutes, so please plan accordingly as I think they have more work to finish.

The town of Oakland is looking for sponsors for a number of events and initiatives, including: downtown flower pots, the town mosaic and the Little Yough Music Festival.  If you have a potential interest, please call or email Michelle Ross at 301.334.2691 or

The Garrett Institute of Lifelong Learning (GILL) just announced their May schedule.  One course readers (and/or their relatives) might be interested in is Practical Boating on Deep Creek Lake for Seniors, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 4th, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon at Bill’s Marine.

Here’s a double shout-out: Donald E. Bossi is the president of the global nonprofit FIRST® — the world’s leading youth-serving nonprofit helping young people discover a passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Bossi just gave an online shout-out (see below) to Garrett County’s FIRST teams (think LEGOs and robotics) and their great outreach to get FIRST teams in every school. Many readers and even locals may not realize what a great program we have in our schools and Sarah and I keep telling everyone that will listen how blessed we are here on the mountain.  Go kids, mentors, coaches and visionaries like Don!
