Services at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster Md are cancelled for Sunday February 22, 2015

According to an alert released by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) early Saturday evening, February 21, 2015, “Hazardous road conditions exist due to winter storm - stay off the roads to allow the crews to clear them and to allow emergency providers to respond during this time. Check in on family, friends, and neighbors - especially the elderly or disabled. Keep devices charged to follow weather and local emergency information. Be cautious when shoveling snow to avoid over exertion.”

Out of an abundance of caution, Grace Lutheran Church at 21 Carroll Street in Westminster Md., cancelled all services and Christian education on both Saturday evening and on Sunday, February 22, 2015.

Ed Beck, member of the ‘back pew club’ at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster; has died.

Ed Beck, Operations Manager of Aggregates Production overseeing gravel, stone, and sand plants for the Arundel Corporation throughout Maryland and member of the back pew club at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster; has died.

Mr. Beck was a wonderful man who always had a smile and something friendly to say when I would see in the very back pew at Sunday services at Grace Lutheran Church. More often than not, when Caroline and I served as ushers at church, we would chat with him and his wife, Mrs. Miriam Beck, a former board member of Carroll County Bank and Trust Company; about a wide-range of topics from banking, to economics, to current events and politics.

Mr. Beck will very much be missed. I would always look for him every Sunday at church.

http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2015/02/ed-beck-member-of-back-pew-club-at.html

Obituary for Mr. Edward Raymond Beck February 12, 2015:

Edward Raymond "Ed" Beck of Berrett died Thursday, February 12, 2015 at home.

Born April 16, 1929, in Berrett, Carroll County, he was the son of Charles Raymond and Margaret Dorsey Beck. He was the husband of Miriam Freter Beck, his wife of 57 years.

Born into farm life, he began milking cows at age six and driving a tractor at age eight. He worked on the farm through his school years graduating from Sykesville High School in 1946.

Tired of farm life he enlisted in the Army in 1954. Following training in Manual Morse Code Interception he served in the Army Security Agency in Berlin, Germany intercepting coded messages sent from Communist countries.

Following his discharge in 1957, he was employed by the Arundel Corporation in Baltimore. At retirement in 1990, he was Operations Manager of Aggregates Production overseeing gravel, stone, and sand plants throughout Maryland.

Throughout his life he was an avid hunter, trap shooter, and lover of nature. Fishing and boating at the family retreat in Ozark County, Missouri were prized vacation activities since 1972.

Family always gave him pleasure, especially the musical events in which his daughters and grandchildren performed. In retirement, golfing and vegetable gardening were enjoyable pastimes as well as responding to family needs with his ability to repair, improve and even invent.

From birth he attended Messiah Lutheran Church next door to his family home and one which his grandparents and great grandparents helped found. He was confirmed there in 1943. He served on the Church Council, the Property Committee, as Treasurer, and in his youth dug graves to earn extra spending money. For the last twenty five years he had been a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster.

He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Jenel and Mirrel, their husbands Wayne Witzke and Jeffrey Wothers, and two grandchildren Timothy and Zellie Wothers.

Surviving nieces and nephews are Wayne Weller and wife Darleen, Donald Beck, Jr. and wife Darlene, Robert Beck and wife Linda, Eva Hendrix and husband Brin, Charlotte Jay, Ursula Standifer, Lorna Dorn and husband Edward and Joan Cole and husband Charles.

He was predeceased by a sister, Madalyn Weller and husband Donald and a brother, Donald Beck and wife Edith.

Friends may gather at the Haight Funeral Home & Chapel, 6416 Sykesville Road, Sykesville on Sunday, February 15, from 1 to 4pm.

A celebration of Resurrection will be held at Grace Lutheran Church, 21 Carroll Street, Westminster, MD 21157 on Monday, February 16, at 10:30 am with his pastors, The Reverends Kevin and Martha Clementson officiating. The family will greet friends at a reception following the service at the church.

In keeping with his wishes there will be no viewing. At a later date his ashes will be distributed on the property he had lived on most of his life. This statement reflects his feelings: "I came from the earth, and I want to return to the earth."

The former owner of Bobby’s Hobby Lobby on Main Street in Westminster for over 40 years, Wanda Pease, died at age 86 on February 11, 2015 http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-former-owner-of-bobbys-hobby-lobby.html

Mrs. Pease was a remarkable person who owned and operated Bobby’s Hobby Lobby, a Westminster institution on Main Street in the middle of downtown, for several generations of Carroll Countians growing-up in an era long gone by.

Several years ago Mrs. Pease and Bobby’s Hobby Lobby was the focus of one or two articles I wrote for the Sunday Carroll Eagle section of the Baltimore Sun.

According to information e-mailed by a family member, her obit reads as follows. You may also find her obit and family arrangements at Fletcher Funeral & Cremation Services, P.A., in Westminster. Her obituary appears here: http://www.fletcherfuneralhome.net/obits/obituary.php?id=639899

She owned and operated Bobby’s Hobby Lobby on Main Street in Westminster for over 40 years.  She worked for Martin Aircraft in her earlier years and graduated from the Peabody Conservatory.  She was a member of the Westminster Retail Merchant Association, Carroll County Philatelic Association, Westminster United Methodist Church and helped start Westminster Fallfest.

She is survived by daughter and son-in-law Roberta and Brian Kasik of Randallstown, daughter Beverly Pease of Germantown, son Christopher Pease of Winter Garden, FL and many beloved friends.

She was predeceased by sisters Winifred Layton, Geraldine Cooke, Ada McNabb, Ina Spring and a brother Luther Spring.

The family will receive friends on Sunday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fletcher Funeral & Cremation Services, 254 E. Main St., Westminster.

Maryland ranked one of the ten worst states for retirement in the universe


Maryland ranked one of the ten worst states for retirement in the universe

10 worst states for retirement By Chris Kahn • Bankrate.com

Not dated – Retrieved February 10, 2015

Retirement » 10 Worst States For Retirement

Follow us: @Bankrate on Twitter | Bankrate on Facebook


It's hard to be flexible on a fixed income. That's why some of America's prettiest, most vibrant locations are also some of the toughest on retirees.

They're usually more expensive, for example, with higher rents and more expensive restaurants. Tax rates also tend to be higher in urban areas. They also may not be as safe.

With that in mind, Bankrate ranked each state based on a variety of factors that everyone should consider before making a move into -- or out of -- their home state. They include a specialized cost-of-living index for retirees, crime statistics, tax rates and comprehensive weather data that factor in sunshine and humidity. Also new this year: Bankrate beefed up its ranking for health care quality, and consulted an extensive survey called the Gallup-Healthways' Well-Being Index. The index gauges the level of satisfaction residents report about their surroundings.

The states that fell to the bottom of our list still have a lot to offer. In fact, many are home to the top tourism destinations in the world. The problem, in the end, is that choosing a good place to retire isn't as easy as picking a vacation spot. Costs matter more. The local culture and infrastructure also matter.

Here, in descending order, are 10 of the lowest-ranking states for retirees based on our criteria.


[…]



The primary knock on Maryland is that it's more expensive to live there than in many other states. The cost of living for retirees is especially high, and residents pay one of the highest tax rates in the country.

December 2, 2014: Jim DeWees Carroll County MD 58th Sheriff


CARROLL COUNTY TO SWEAR IN 58TH SHERIFF FIRST NEW SHERIFF IN 16 YEARS



Westminster – Carroll County will swear in its 58th Sheriff during an inauguration ceremony at Carroll Community College’s Scott Auditorium on Tuesday, Dec 2nd.  Clerk of the Circuit Court, Donald Sealing, will swear in retired Maryland State Police Captain Jim DeWees as the first new Sheriff of Carroll County in 16 years.  Sheriff DeWees won both contested primary and general elections by overwhelming margins to become Sheriff.  He takes over for retiring Sheriff Kenneth Tregoning who was first elected to office in 1998.  Sheriff Tregoning served four consecutive terms and did not seek re-election for a fifth.

Sheriff DeWees was raised in Carroll County and is a 1988 graduate of South Carroll High School in Winfield, Maryland.  He holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Criminal Justice from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland and a Masters of Arts degree in Human Resource Development from Seton Hall University in Trenton, New Jersey.  Sheriff DeWees is also a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command.

Sheriff DeWees is married with three children who attend Carroll County Public Schools.  His wife of 16 years, Heather, is a teacher for Carroll County Public Schools and the girls’ varsity basketball coach at Manchester Valley High School.  Sheriff DeWees is the second youngest of the six children of Joan and the late Thomas DeWees of Thurmont, Maryland.

Sheriff DeWees retired as a Captain from the Maryland State Police.  His career with the Maryland State Police started after high school when he became a cadet at the age of 18.  Sheriff DeWees rose through the ranks of the Maryland State Police and held numerous operational and command assignments within the organization.  Sheriff DeWees spent the majority of his career as a patrol and investigative trooper, supervisor and barrack commander in Carroll County, assigned to the Westminster Barrack.  Sheriff DeWees was commander of both the Westminster and Golden Ring Barracks, Operations Commander for the Washington Metropolitan Area and ended his 25-year career as the Special Operations Division Commander, overseeing Emergency Operations, K9, S.T.A.T.E. Team and the Motor Unit.  He also served as an instructor at the State Police Academy.  For most of his career, Sheriff DeWees served as an operator, team leader and commander of the Maryland State Police SWAT Team known as S.T.A.T.E.

In 1998, Sheriff DeWees was awarded the Governor’s Citation of Valor after he shot the gun out of a suicidal man’s hand, ending a two-hour standoff in Keymar, Maryland.  He is also a recipient of the Superintendent’s Citation of Valor for his role in ending two separate armed standoffs in 2000 and 2002.  Sheriff DeWees has received numerous awards for excellence in investigations and leadership.

Sheriff DeWees brings a diverse background of law enforcement experience and leadership to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.   Continuing a career of public service, Sheriff DeWees now leads 260 dedicated employees who staff a full service law enforcement agency providing road patrol and criminal investigative services, a detention center, and courthouse security.  Sheriff DeWees considers it one of the highest honors of his career to serve the citizens of Carroll County as their Sheriff.

DeWees appointed Eldersburg resident Larry Suther as Chief Deputy of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.  Suther is a retired major from the Baltimore County Police Department where he spent 38 years working his way through the ranks from cadet to major and retiring as commander of the Special Operations Division.  Suther will hold the rank of Colonel and oversee the operations for the Office.  Colonel Suther has extensive operational, tactical and investigative experience.  Colonel Suther holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Baltimore and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy.


DeWees also appointed Manchester resident Vicky McDonold as Director of the Management Services Bureau.  Director McDonold comes to the Sheriff’s Office from the private sector where she was a project manager for Automatic Data Processing (ADP) in Owings Mills.  McDonold holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from Towson University in finance and a Master’s Degree from University of Maryland University College in Technology Management.

The close working relationship between newly-elected sheriff and state’s attorney appreciated.

By Kevin E. Dayhoff, kevindayhoff@gmail.com

Sunday, February 8, 2015

The Carroll County sheriff’s office has been a whirlwind of activity ever since retired Maryland State Police Captain Jim DeWees took office last December 2 as Carroll County’s 58th sheriff.

DeWees takes office at a time of great changes in law enforcement. Not to be overlooked is the heightened scrutiny – and danger – in which law enforcement officers find themselves these days.

Among the many new approaches initiated recently; the sheriff’s office has announced a long over-due initiative to equalize the due process, retirement and compensation disparities between the sheriff’s deputies who work the county roads in a law enforcement and investigations capacity with that of the men and women who work as correctional officers in the county detention facility.

Then, just days later, the sheriff’s office announced the appointment of an additional investigator to the county’s drug task force to help forcefully address the growing alarm in the community over the growing abuse of prescription drugs and heroin.

DeWees has also been working closely with the county’s new Carroll County state’s attorney, Brian DeLeonardo, in a number of areas; including the recent announcement of heightening the coordination between prosecutors and local police officers and deputies who work the streets.

Both DeWees and DeLeonardo emphasized their fathers in their respective oath of office ceremonies. Both dads served in the Vietnam War in the 1960s and early 1970s. This is interesting since arguably the last sea change in approach to law enforcement in the community took place in the 1960s.
