Wednesday August 1

Happy August! The weather today will be showers and thunderstorms likely with some of the storms possibly producing heavy rain. High near 74 and low around 64.

Be sure to stop by the Mountain Fresh Farmer’s Market today from 10am-1pm and get your tomatoes and other farm-fresh goodies! Last week, we shared the market’s poll on the preferred way to eat tomato sandwiches — the results are just about even between mayo and Miracle Whip. See the full summary here.

A new public-private partnership has been initiated to prevent invasive species at Deep Creek Lake. The effort will bring forward a robust zebra mussel monitoring plan which will utilize a combination of water quality sampling and visual surveys to look for the possible presence of the invasive species at DCL.

A Garrett County man was charged with animal cruelty after complaints on the living conditions of his livestock and dogs.

A Vibrant Economy Open House will be held on Monday, August 13 and will focus on matters relating to economic development, infrastructure and transportation and give the public an opportunity to share in the planning process and the way you see the county growing.  The information that is gathered through this meeting will be influential in the development of the Comprehensive Plan.
