Beef Bulgogi

Beef Bulgogi

For dinner this evening, Babylon family foodies, Marnie and Louis Paumier, made Beef Bulgogi, a Korean meal that literally means 'fire meat' in Korean. Thursday, June 7, 2018

For 10 person (ish) do 200ml soy sauce, 200 ml water, 50ml mirin, 100g sugar, 1 table spoon of minced garlic, 1 tea spoon of pepper. The key is how the sauce tastes before you mix it with meat. I would taste it and control the sweetness by sugar or honey. And sesame oil and sesame seeds. Probably 2.5 lb thin shaved beef.

2018 winners of the annual Mike Eaton scholarship announced

2018 winners of the annual Mike Eaton scholarship announced

The Historical Society of Carroll County announces the 2018 winners of the annual Mike Eaton scholarship.


Since 2011 The Historical Society of Carroll County has been awarding the Mike Eaton Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to honor the memory of William Granville “Mike” Eaton, an English teacher at Westminster High School from 1935 to 1971. He also directed plays and advised the Key Club. He inspired his students to challenge and improve themselves in many ways. He always believed in the great potential of his students to excel, and they have proven him correct.

Mr. Eaton brought panache to his classroom with his deck of index cards from which he pulled the targets of his well-placed questions. The cards brought their share of insecurity to the ill prepared, but Westminster High School seniors began to discover something, Shakespeare wasn't so bad after all. Mr. Eaton commanded the classroom. Heading the Drama Club at Westminster High School, he also commanded excellence in theatrical offerings.

Mr. Eaton was born in Centerville, Maryland and passed away from cancer in 1995. He graduated from Western Maryland College in 1930 and subsequently went on to earn his Master’s degree at Columbia University in New York.

For over three decades, Mike Eaton was Thelma Hoffman’s star boarder at Hoffman’s Inn, now owned by the Historical Society of Carroll County and known as Cockey’s Tavern, its name from when it was built in 1820.

The Mike Eaton Scholarship has been established through the Historical Society of Carroll County to recognize inspirational teachers, like Mr. Eaton, in the lives of the current graduating class of Westminster High School. The winning students wrote an essay about their most inspirational teacher.

Two Mike Eaton scholarships were awarded this spring to graduating seniors from Westminster High School. The teachers in the winning essays were also recognized at the Westminster High School awards ceremonies on June 4, 2018.

The two winning students were Margie Spann and Richard Folderauer. They each received a $500.00 scholarship and their most influential teacher received an engraved school bell.

Mr. Folderauer named Mrs. Melissa Purdy as his most influential teacher. Ms. Spann named Mrs. Kim Saltsburg as her most influential teacher.

Like Mr. Eaton, Mrs. Purdy is the Westminster High School drama teacher. According to Mr. Folderauer, every year Mrs. Purdy puts her heart, mind, and soul into three productions. She is a director, mentor, and friend to her students. She teaches kids from all walks of life the importance and the joy of performing. By doing that, she gives her students a love for performing and has inspired Richard Folderauer to inspire others with that love of performing.

Ms. Spann called Ms. Saltsburg an inspirational teacher whom she said was energetic, humorous, and beaming. She made interactive lessons that inspired Spann to anticipate going to class, look forward to studying for tests, and yearn to learn more. All of this happened in Mrs. Saltsburg’s Human Anatomy and Physiology class. While she introduced many to the pungent smell of formaldehyde; in the process she helped Margie Spann flourish in class and introduced her to the medical field, as she now plans to become a doctor.

Mr. Folderauer and Ms. Spann will both be attending the University of Maryland, College Park.

The Historical Society is pleased to be sponsoring this scholarship in memory of Mike Eaton who was an influential and memorable teacher at Westminster High School for over 35 years.

Mrs. Nancy Lee Anania December 21, 1933 - May 19, 2018

Obituary for Mrs. Nancy Lee Anania December 21, 1933 - May 19, 2018

Nancy Lee Anania, age 84, died on May 19, 2018 at her home in Ellicott City, MD. She was the daughter of the late Lawrence Eugene Mulcahy and Eva May Leister Mulcahy. Nancy was the wife of the late Peter V. Anania, Sr., her husband of 63 years. 

Nancy was a loving mother who raised four sons. A gifted artist, she took joy in painting, crafts such as making dollhouses, wreaths, and holiday decorations, sewing as well as designing landscapes and interiors. She enjoyed listening to all kinds of music, from opera to rock. She had a beautiful voice and got a kick out of singing with her sons in their garage band. Her favorite artist was opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.

Nancy was a lover of life and learning, and an avid history buff. She enjoyed colonial Jamestown in particular. She was fond of art museums and seeing her old neighborhood in Hamden where she grew up. 

Nancy’s biggest passion was her family. She was a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Anyone who walked through her door would be welcome and would never leave hungry. Her kitchen stayed open 24 hours, her holiday celebrations were legendary, and she went out of her way to make every gathering unforgettable. 

Nancy is survived by her sons, Peter V. Anania, Jr., David S. Anania, and his wife Barbara Anania, Andrew J. Anania, grandchildren Elizabeth Anania, Ashen Anania, Robin Harlan, and Tara Anania, and great grandchildren Dayja, Lily, Ella, Chloe, and Destiny. She was predeceased by her husband Peter V. Anania, Sr. and her son, Thomas S. Anania.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 from 5 to 7pm. at Haight Funeral Home and Chapel, 6416 Sykesville Rd., Sykesville .A Funeral service will follow at 7:00pm. 

To send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Mrs. Nancy Lee Anania please visit our Sympathy Store.

Time Flies Dayhoff: Fires and general mayhem dominated the April news in days gone by

Time Flies Dayhoff: Fires and general mayhem dominated the April news in days gone by:

“Fires captured the attention of the local newspapers in April many years ago. The American Sentinel reported on April 9, 1898 that a “large coal oil lamp, suspended from the ceiling of the office of Dr. John S. Mathias, this city, broke loose on Wednesday night, fell, exploded and the oil caught fire…”

Women Who Know Their Place

Women Who Know Their Place

Happy Monday - - The Monday morning thought of the day to get the week started-out correctly. This was shared with me by way of an email by a very wise women in our community. 7May2018 https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10213833935216141&set=a.10203968656950350.1073741840.1040426835&type=3&theater

Women Who Know Their Place

Barbara Walters did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before our involvement in the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to and are happy to, maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?"

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, "Land Mines."

No matter what language you speak or where you go,

Moral of this story is:

BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A REALLY SMART WOMAN.

Letters From A Better Me: An Open Letter to Carroll County Maryland Sheriff'...: An Open Letter to Carroll County Maryland Sheriff’s Department: I was watching my friend in Florida go through one of the scariest mo...

An Open Letter to Carroll County Maryland Sheriff's Department

Wow - but this letter does not surprise me. This is what we do in Carroll County. We have the best law enforcement agencies and best fire companies. Hats off to Cpl. Jeremy Holland and Sheriff Jim DeWees.


[…]

“I debated for a second on who to send the e-mail to. I decided to send it directly to Sheriff Jim DeWees. Thinking it would turn out the way the Florida efforts did, I didn’t expect much, especially being I’m not even the parent, I’m just a concerned friend of the family. Within thirty minutes of the e-mail, Cpl. Jeremy Holland contacted me. When my phone rang, I started tearing up the second he said who he was. For the first time I felt like the right people were in my friend’s corner. After our conversation he contacted both my friend and her husband….”

Maryland State Police are investigating an incident at the Carroll County Regional Airport



Maryland State Police are investigating an incident at the Carroll County Regional Airport tonight that resulted in a plane coming off of the runway. https://trib.al/NPt5NRF


Maryland State Police are investigating an incident at the Carroll County Regional Airport that resulted in a plane coming off of the runway, Cpl. Jordan Snedeker confirmed Thursday night.

At 8:21 p.m., the emergency communications center was alerted to a “small plane crash,” Westminster Volunteer Fire Company public information officer Kevin Dayhoff said. Multiple units from Westminster responded, he said.

Upon arrival, they located a small plane off of the runway and occupants were out of the plane, Dayhoff said.

There were no injuries, he added.

At about 9:10 p.m., Snedeker said police believe something happened while the plane was landing, causing it to come off the runway and into the grass. Police don’t yet know the type of plane or how many people were inside, Snedeker said.

Maryland State Police will be investigating to find out what happened and what caused the incident, he said.

Westminster Fire Department responds to accident on Route 140

Westminster Fire Department responds to a serious motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Route 140 and Englar Road that snarled traffic for several hours Saturday

April 21, 2018 by Westminster Fire Department PIO and Chaplain Kevin Dayhoff

A serious motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Route 140 and Englar Road snarled traffic for several hours Saturday evening just outside of Westminster.

On Sat., April 21, 2018, at approximately 8:30 in the evening, units from the Westminster Fire Department, Westminster City Police, and the Maryland State Police responded to a call for a two-vehicle head-on vehicle collision at the intersection of Englar Road and Route 140 – Baltimore Blvd.

Emergency units responded quickly to the scene. Upon arrival, Westminster Fire Department Lt. Guy Garheart found a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident in the middle of the intersection. A Taneytown police officer on his way to work had happened upon the scene and was assisting the response. Although there was significant property damage to both vehicles, fortunately no-one was injured seriously in the accident.

And fortunately, no first responders - police officers, EMS providers or firefighters were hurt. This, in spite of a series of several serious incidents in which drivers drove around the cones and flares at traffic control points – and through the accident scene, in order to hasten their travels - directly endangering the lives of the first responders.

The accident remains under investigation.

The Marriage & Relationship Education Center is a 50l
(c) (3) faith-based organization established in 2004 and is located in the
Carroll Non Profit Center in Westminster. We are dedicated to improving the
lives of children in our community by strengthening families through marriage
and relationship education, partnerships and public awareness efforts.

As an organization, MREC works with a proactive, educational
approach through classes that teach skills necessary for couples to deal with
conflict while better understanding their mate.

In addition, MREC encourages couples and individuals through
awareness efforts to have positive connections/ experiences and make healthy
life decisions.

To maximize our impact, MREC staff is certified in many
curriculums to train other key individuals/churches as teachers. This knowledge
sharing creates a ripple effect of healthy relationship skills and
strengthens families in our community.

Our Founders - Retired Carroll County Public School
educators, Bill and Anne McKenna, have been married 53 years. They have
four children and 12 grandchildren. Bill spent over 30 years teaching,
coaching, and as an athletic director. The McKennas are certified in multiple
marriage education programs. They started their work in marriage education by developing a marriage ministry in their local church. As the word spread to other
churches, they decided, with the encouragement of the local ministerium, to form
an independent organization that utilized a proactive approach to strengthening
families.

The Marriage & Relationship Education Center (formally
known as Marriage Resource Center) was founded in November of 2004 and gained
501(c) 3 status in December, 2006.
