By Katie V. Jones, July 6, 2014

Since 1985, July has been declared National Parks and
Recreation Month by the National Recreation and Park Association.

For residents of Carroll County, the designation is another
signal that it's a great time to take advantage of the many outdoor facilities
both the county and local municipalities offer.

"It's a good to get outside," said Jeff Degitz,
administrator for the Carroll County Recreation and Parks, citing fitness and
social benefits as well as learning more about the environment and world.
"I encourage everyone to come out and hit the trails and use our
parks."

Several special programs are being offered by both the
county and City of Westminster to encourage people to enjoy the outdoors. The
offerings are the result of some get-togethers, sharing of ideas and evaluating
past suggestions.

"We get together and brainstorm," said Kristi
Turgeon, administrator coordinator for Westminster's Department of Recreation
and Parks. "What kind of stuff went well? Anything we want to change?
Anything new we can bring?"

As a result of the brainstorming, the city offers an
activity every day, from free snow cones at Locust Lane Park on Wednesdays, to
free Zumba and yoga classes. While last year's outside movie night had some
issues, they decided to give it another try this year, she said.

Wesley Theological Seminary: Dr. Mary Alice Douty Edwards, professor emerita of Christian education passed away on July 10 at age 100.

We are mourning the loss of Dr. Mary Alice Douty Edwards, professor emerita of Christian education, who passed away on July 10 at age 100.

She taught at Wesley from 1957 until 1983. She served as interim dean when Dr. Phil Wogaman stepped down. President Doug Lewis remembers her dedication to her students, her love of the institution and her firm resolve.

She was the last surviving faculty member who taught in Westminster, Maryland before the seminary moved to Washington in 1958. "It was a smaller group in those days. But, like our faculty today, Mary Alice exemplified the essential quality of this community: the care professors have for their students," says Wesley President David McAllister-Wilson.

There will be a service celebrating Dr. Mary Alice Edward's life at Wesley's Oxnam Chapel on Tuesday, September 2 at 4:30 p.m. We hope you can join us for this service.

What Republicans Need to Know About Cleveland

Welcome, GOP! Here’s a guide to our fair city. By VINCE GUERRIERI

 "last time any political convention was held in Cleveland was 1936. The city was the fifth-biggest in the country, and it seemed like the sky was the limit for a town that billed itself as “the Best Location in the Nation.”

It hasn’t all been downhill since, but Cleveland’s taken its lumps as the “Mistake by the Lake.” Now, people here are pretty excited that the Republicans will be holding their presidential convention here in 2016—thought most of us, to be honest, are more interested in the faint prospect that LeBron James will come back to lead the Cavs to glory."

River Valley Ranch Carroll County - Child dies after being struck by falling tree during severe storm

River Valley Ranch Carroll County - Child dies after being struck by falling tree during severe storm

“Child dies after being struck by falling tree during severe storm”

According to a release by the Carroll County Sheriff's Office: 
Millers, Carroll County, Maryland; July 8, 2014 ------ Just before 7 pm on Tuesday evening, July 8, 2014, approximately 114 children ages 7 to 12 years old were attending a session at a pavilion on the hill as part of the  River Valley Ranch summer camp when a strong storm came through the area. 
Upon seeing the impending storm, the camp staff began  to move the children to an enclosed building also located on the hill. While moving to the hall, the storm arrived, knocking a tree over, which struck several of the children. 
Seven children were transported to area hospitals. Tragically, one of the seven died as a result of the injuries. The other six children are not believed to have life threatening injuries at the time of this press release. An additional two children were treated by emergency medical personnel at the scene. 
 Parents of children attending the Arrowhead Woods and Fort Roller camps are being notified to pick up their children from the camp. The Frontier Town camp was not damaged by the storm, and the teenagers attending that camp may remain on campus if they choose. 
Carroll County Sheriff's Office detectives responded to the scene and are in the process of conducting the investigation into this incident.

Two Charged After Landing at Base of Prettyboy Dam

Two Charged After Landing at Base of Prettyboy Dam

July 1, 2014 (BALTIMORE, MD) — The Baltimore Environmental Police, a division of the Baltimore City Department of Public Works, today charged two men with one count each of criminal trespass in connection with an incident Sunday, June 29, in which the men, who were kayaking at the Prettyboy Dam in Parkton, sustained injuries.

The men, Paul K. Hare (DOB 7/29/1992) and Stephen D. Sparks (DOB 1/28/1993), both of Northern Baltimore County, were found near the dam at 7:35 p.m. by Baltimore Environmental Police Officer Heidi Greenleaf and the Maryland Line Volunteer Fire and EMS. They were responding to a call for assistance that came in 10 minutes earlier.

Mr. Hare was found with a large head laceration and transported to York General Hospital in Pennsylvania. He was treated and released at 1:30 a.m. on June 30, 2014.

Mr. Sparks was found at the base of the dam with a severe head injury, possible broken bones, and possible internal injuries. A technical rescue was put into place with the help of the Baltimore Environmental Police, the Maryland Line Volunteer Fire Company and EMS, Hereford Volunteer Fire Company, and Baltimore County EMS.

He was put in a stokes basket and carried up the cliffside and stairs at Prettyboy Dam to the awaiting Maryland State Police Aviation Unit and transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

An investigation determined that both men were in a No Trespass zone and had been boating without permits. Alcohol is believed to have been involved.

The rescue operation was completed in approximately two and half hours.

The charge is a misdemeanor that carries a possible sentence of up to 1,000 fine and 1 year in jail. The case is in the jurisdiction of the Towson District Court.

Westminster celebrates National Recreation and Parks Month

Westminster celebrates National Recreation and Parks Month

By Ericka Dixon Times Correspondent July 1, 2014 http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/news/local/cct-westminster-celebrates-national-recreation-and-parks-month-20140701,0,3158641.story

Come join the City of Westminster for a month outside during

month-long event’s activities, according to Kristie Turgeon, administrative
coordinator for the City of Westminster Recreation and Parks.

“We want people to use our parks and experience the programs

Priscilla G. Teeter, registered nurse, 85, Carroll County icon

By Frederick N. Rasmussen, The Baltimore Sun

4:11 p.m. EDT, June 16, 2014 

http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2014/06/priscilla-g-teeter-registered-nurse.html

Priscilla G. Teeter, a registered nurse who later became an administrator with the Carroll County Health Department, died May 30 of brain cancer at Carroll Lutheran Village in Westminster. She was 85.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/obituaries/bs-md-ob-priscilla-teeter-20140616,0,4054151.story Fred Rasmussen is a great writer and he did a good job on a tribute to a wonderful Carroll County icon.

Mrs. Teeter was an absolutely wonderful person, as was her late husband, who was also extremely good to Caroline and me. Mrs. Teeter will be greatly missed and her passing makes me very-very sad.

According to Mr. Rasmussen, "Mrs. Teeter was a member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ, 17 Bond St., Westminster, where a celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday."
