Wednesday May 20

Yesterday was a bit dreary, with a little rain in the afternoon.  Today will be cloudy, with a high near 53 degrees and a low of about 41. It will also be quite breezy, with an east wind of 20 to 24 mph, with gusts as high as 39 mph.  Batten down the hatches!

Garrett College held their 48th commencement this weekend. Due to the coronovirus, it had to be held virtually, but that doesn’t diminish the great accomplishments of the almost 100 graduates.  I want to give a shout-out to the special award winners, including two stellar students Merlon Devine and Aryssa Corby that I had the pleasure of teaching.  They are both smart, hard-working and great individuals. Good luck to all the graduates!

On a negative note, the Sun reported yesterday that Maryland announced 1,784 new COVID-19 cases — a single-day high for the state — and 60 new deaths from the coronavirus Tuesday, as the state reached past 40,000 confirmed infections while reaching the cusp of 2,000 confirmed fatalities. Please be safe…

Don’t forget that the Mountain Fresh Farmers Market is open on Saturdays.  There are special requirments due to the pandemic, so please click here in advance for special order and participation requirements.

I know and like the folks at First United Bank & Trust.  They have our business acount and they do a nice job of always being there for our community.  I sit on their advisory board and they are also an advertiser on Deep Creek Times, so I received an email from them yesterday and thought I would share the link.  If you are facing financial uncertainty, are looking for guidance or just want to investigate investment or loan options, they might be the one for you.  Just thought I would give them a little plug here…

That’s all for today folks.  Be safe and be happy!
