Introduction

The Mayor and Common Council of Westminster adopted Ordinance No. 553 which adds new sections to the Subdivision Ordinance of the City of Westminster.  Chapter  164 of these  sections provides for  the  adoption of a landscape manual  for  the  City  to enhance  its  environmental and visual  character for its citizens' use and enjoyment. 

The Mayor and Common Council recognize that developers and property owners will expend additional costs for landscaping required by this landscape manual. However, it also recognizes the important value of this highly regarded amenity.  It further finds that a landscape manual will preserve and stabilize the City’s ecological balance, improve air and water quality, reduce flooding and erosion, and provide protection from climatic conditions.

This manual has been adopted by The Mayor and Common Council of Westminster pursuant to Ordinance No. 553 so that its purposes and objectives can be achieved to the benefit of all of the City’s citizens.

It is intended that  this  manual  be used and implemented by landowners, developers, contractors, civil  engineers, landscape architects, landscape contractors, urban  foresters, natural  resource  specialists and planners in obtaining appropriate approval from  the  City  in connection with development.

The landscape manual is supplementary to and does not replace the provisions of the Forest Conservation Act as contained in Section 5-1601 of the Natural Resources Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.

Purpose

The purpose of this Landscape Manual is to preserve, protect and improve - the public health and general welfare by promoting the environmental and public benefits of landscaping.  This Landscape Manual provides for the use of landscape elements in an organized manner designed to augment and enhance the City's physical environment and visual character with resulting benefits to its citizens.

In achieving this purpose, the City adopts the following goals and objectives for landscape design:

(a)      to provide  varying  and attractive landscape elements including deciduous  and evergreen planting, earthen berms planted  with  suitable vegetation and a variety of harmonious shrubs, groundcovers, grasses and perennials.

(b)        to preserve and enhance natural vegetation  to the maximum  extent feasible, to protect  the natural ecosystem and achieve aesthetically pleasing appearances.

(c)      to require new  planting which  is compatible  with  the existing vegetation of Westminster  and its environs.

(d)      to preserve steep, erodible and wooded  slopes and provide  suitable planting  on artificially graded slopes.

(e)      to design streets  and roads, streetscapes  and grading to accommodate and respect the natural terrain and vegetation.

(f)       to utilize landscape elements to stabilize soil and prevent  erosion, sedimentation and reduce stormwater run-off  with  its potential damage.


(g)      to utilize elements of landscape design in aiding the removal of pollutants from the air and assist in the generation of oxygen.

(h)     to provide  a buffer  and screen against noise, pollution and dissimilar uses.

(i)       to provide  a haven and shelter for birds and other fauna.

(j)       to provide  shade thereby reducing ambient temperature, mitigating heat islands and providing protection from adverse environmental conditions, including  sun glare, heat, noise and wind.

Colonial Lock and Key Service Westminster Md

Colonial Lock and Key Service Westminster Md

May 13, 2015 Kevin E. Dayhoff

It has been ages since I needed to have some keys made.

I understand that if you go to the mega-stores that put all the local hardware – and lumber stores out of business; self-service make-your-own-keys kiosks have replaced real live human beings - actual locksmiths that know the business. I always prefer to do business with a real-live person. What do I know about keys?

I guess that’s okay to make your keys if making your own keys is on your top-ten bucket list of things to do before you die. And actually – now that you mention it – making keys is not on my list.

I have firm belief that these mega-stores have everything in the world under one roof. And that is fine, well and good; if you know what to do with a whatchamacallit once you purchase it. I often do not.

I remember years ago I used to go to Mr. Wardenfelt, a locksmith up on Pennsylvania Avenue. He’s been gone for decades – and the store is gone too.

I used to go to Hanks across the street from Harry’s Man Street Grille on West Main Street in Westminster – but Hank died in a tragic accident last winter.

The keys I needed to have copied were not your ordinary keys. I was at a loss. Then I remembered years ago, I used to go to Colonial Lock at the east end of Westminster.

I stopped by Colonial Lock Service on East Main Street and found Yvonne and Gary Gosnell to be the nicest folks. I got my keys made – and took them home and they actually worked well.

I always believe that it is not good enough to be the best – you have to be nice. The Gosnells were not only human – and good at what they do… They were nice.

"Dickens couldn’t have scripted it better

Kids often say the darnedest things, but other times they act in the most humane fashion.

At a Waffle House in Prattville, Ala., 5-year-old Josiah Duncan shocked fellow customers after he asked his mother to help a destitute man who walked into the eatery and was being ignored."

Pleasant Valley Community Memorial Day observance on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at 2 o’clock at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.


Pleasant Valley Community Memorial Day observance on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at 2 o’clock at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.

On Sunday May 24, the Pleasant Valley community will once again ceremonially gather at St. Matthew’s United Church of Christ at 1427 Pleasant Valley Road at 1:45 in the afternoon for the annual Pleasant Valley Community Memorial Day service. The service is one of the many community gifts of living in Carroll County.

After gathering at the church, townsfolk, accompanied by the Wm. F. Myers and Sons Band will be escorted by the Pleasant Valley Community Fire Company for the half-mile walk to the Pleasant Valley Cemetery – where many members of my family are buried.

It is tradition that the walkers carry flowers and flags to place on the graves of the many veterans from the surrounding community that are buried in the cemetery.


This year’s speaker will be local historian, journalist and artist, Kevin E. Dayhoff, the former mayor of Westminster, 2001-2005

Pastor’s study art for February 8, 2015

Pastor’s study art for February 8, 2015


“Pastor’s study” Kevin E. Dayhoff February 8, 2015 www.kevindayhoff.org

Romans 12: 22 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Monday May 18, 2015, after the Grace Lutheran Church council meeting. A rambling stream of consciousness that might be more akin to typing rather than writing – all apologies to Truman Capote.

By Kevin E. Dayhoff Monday May 18, 2015

According to an item in the New York Times on October 25, 1992, “In ‘At Northport Watering Hole, Kerouac Was Just Another Drinker’ [ Sept. 13 ,] Patrick Fenton neglected to mention Truman Capote's flip dismissal of Kerouac's work as follows, "That's not writing, that's typing." While this evaluation was not without merit, I must agree with Mike McGrady, quoted by Fenton as having declared Kerouac ‘important.’

“Certainly, "On the Road" was a faithful depiction of youthful despair over the order of things as they saw it. McGrady's praise is not to be taken lightly, coming as it does from a serious journalist ("A Dove in Vietnam") and mastermind of the … spoof "Naked Came the Stranger."

“I would add that Capote was a bit of a poseur himself, his enormous gifts notwithstanding. His professed invention a new genre, the fictional biography (or whatever exactly he called it) with "In Cold Blood" was really a veiled excuse for not having to be accurate.” EWIN RITCHIE Elmont

Of course all that did was to remind me of Oscar Wilde’s play, “The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People” – February 14, 895

Okay – now that I have chased that squirrel across the keyboard, moving right along here….

For me, one of the highlights of the month is attending our church council meetings at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster. It is a great council full of really nice folks with a great deal of knowledge and skills with which they guide the church through the difficult waters of the 21st Century and its emphasis on the new religion of secular progressivism. Just saying.

Also just saying, I must be the least qualified member of Grace Lutheran’s council in the history of the council. I am greatly humbled by being even considered for a seat on the council. I was the most surprised person on the planet when the church congregation voted to include me on the council. I guess that is another conversation for another time. What it all means is that I have to work hard to be able to attempt to contribute in the midst of such a talented group if individuals.

Anyway, my schedule this month is horrid and I have not felt well for several days. I was doing some heavy lifting last week, which I really-really ought not to have been doing at my age and I hurt my left shoulder and it really hurts.

Of course this comes during a month of more speaking engagements than I have had in ages, in addition to my columns for the newspaper and other writing projects. Oh well… My point was not to complain – but to put the council meeting in a context that it was certainly not convenient to attend; yet I prioritized going because I get so much value out of the meetings.

During the meeting my thoughts drifted to a time earlier in the year when I was in the pastor’s study class one Sunday morning February 8, 2015 at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster. At that time I drew some of my notes from Pastor Kevin Clementson’s great lecture.

That morning, Pastor Kevin led us in a discussion about the scripture lessons that Sunday. The first reading was Isaiah 40: 21-31. The second reading was 1 Corinthians 9: 16-23. And the gospel lesson was from Mark 1: 29-39.

The takeaway from the lesson in Isaiah was “The Judeans in exile have a good reason to be hopeful: the one who will bring them to freedom is the God who created the world, the God who subdues the rulers of the earth and gives strength to those who are weary.”

I pondered this after the church council meeting this evening. Our devotions at the council meeting were led by a particularly inspirational church council member, Jo Monka, who really reached me with her discussion about “hope.”

She in turn, mentioned Romans 12: 22 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

In a year in which has had so much strife and trouble, the Romans verse is a great springboard for some insightful thought and reflection.

The context of the verse is that it is sandwiched between words which give it even greater meaning: “1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. 3For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.…”

At the February 8, 2015 pastor’s study, part of the takeaway from the reading from 1 Corinthians 9: 16-23 was that “God had entrusted Paul with the responsibility of bring the gospel to diverse people. Hence the focus of Paul’s ministry is not his own rights or privileges as an apostle but the privilege of serving God by freely sharing the good news of Christ with others.”

Several years ago, one of the highlights of a trip to Greece was visiting the place where it is reported that Paul spoke to the Corinthians…

The takeaway from the gospel lesson, Mark 1: 29-39 was that “Everywhere Jesus goes, many people expect him to set them free from oppression. Everywhere he goes, he heals them and sets them free. Disease, devils, and death are running for their lives. The forces that diminish human life are rendered powerless by Jesus…”

Which brings me full circle back to my drawing. What does the drawing mean? Beats me. I guess we will never know now that Mr. Capote is no longer with us. Then again, he wrote fictional biographies so he did not have to be bothered by being accurate.

This comes at a time when so much of the media is factual – and accurate but does not tell the truth.

Oh – I’m over my word limit.

So, now that my fingers are warmed-up, I guess I need to write a speech for the Memorial Day services at Pleasant Valley Cemetery on Sunday, May 24, 2015…


This is fun. I must be the luckiest person in the world. Just saying.
