Eagle Archive: A New Windsor summer made glorious by William Shakespeare

Eagle Archive: A New Windsor summer made glorious by William Shakespeare

By Kevin Dayhoff, August 26, 2012: https://wp.me/p8C7tH-am On the morning of Aug. 22, in 1485, a defining moment in English history took place with the death of Richard III in the Battle of Bosworth Field.

This of course, leads us directly to the summer of 1938 at Blue Ridge College in New Windsor.

Well, sorta-kinda.

I'll explain … after I wax poetic with William Shakespeare: "Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by this son of York…"

Many will recognize that these lines appear in Shakespeare's "Richard III" — the last play of a study in history of the Wars of Roses by Shakespeare, which includes, "Henry VI, parts 1, 2 and 3," "Richard II" and "Henry V." Of all of Shakespeare's work, "Richard III" remains my favorite (followed by, on any given day, "As You Like It").

NEW WINDSOR HERITAGE ANNOUNCES 2016 SUMMER'S END HOME & GARDEN TOUR

New Windsor Heritage is sponsoring a Summer's End Home and Garden Tour on September 10, 2016 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The event features five historic homes and gardens, a contemporary home with extensive plantings, a restored 1854 school house, an 18th century log house, and a jewel of an 1897 church. Each site will include plein air artists working in a variety of media, and Master Gardeners will be on-hand to answer questions about the gardens on tour and attendees’ own trees, shrubs, and plants.

Homes include an 1813 high-style, Federal era, three story bank house/villa and an early 19th century Piedmont Plantation house. Owners and docents will be on-hand to share each house's history. A special attraction is the Springdale School where a teacher and students in period costumes will conduct lessons derived from 19th century textbooks.

Each visitor will receive a tour booklet containing descriptions of the homes and gardens and a map to the sites. The booklet will serve as a ticket to all of the locations. Admission is $15 per person, and children under 12 are free. 

Fees may be paid on the day of the tour starting at 12:45 p.m. at the New Windsor Heritage Museum, 207 Main Street, right next to New Windsor State Bank. Drinks, snacks, and rest room facilities will be available.

For additional information about the tour and the houses and gardens featured, please contact Dori or Frank Batavick at 410-848-5263.


The New Windsor Heritage Committee is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization founded in 1986 and dedicated to the preservation and documentation of all aspects of the history of New Windsor, Maryland. It was chartered exclusively for a wide-range of educational and charitable purposes related to this mission.

Over 115 business and community leaders filled the Zigler Hospitality Center at the Brethren Center facility in New Windsor this morning for the annual Carroll County Chamber legislative breakfast. Jan. 7, 2016 Thursday 8 am. And it is always good to see Kelly Heck. I can always geek-out and talk with her about art, technology, and photography. She rules.

And it is always good to see Kelly Heck at a Carroll County Chamber event. She rules. http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2016/01/and-it-is-always-good-to-see-kelly-heck.html

Good turnout but it seemed that Ag, the number one business in Carroll County and the state was under-represented.

Jan. 7, 2016 Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Legislative Kickoff Breakfast was sponsored by BGE and Comcast. http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2016/01/jan-7-2016-carroll-county-chamber-of.html

Always good to see Mike Fowler, the BGE representative, who spoke well and mentioned the 200th anniversary of BGE

Bill Gavin is the Carroll Co. Chamber of Commerce Legislative Committee chair… Has chaired the committee for 40 years. Jan. 7, 2016

Del. Haven Shoemaker. … Discussed his committee assignment and shared a few examples of matters that have caught his attention. I continue to like his straightforward no nonsense style

Several brought-up the need to inject some funds into the state pension system to shore-up the fund. Not much mention of pension reform.

Last year’s efforts to scale back the taxes on military pensions was mentioned and continuing the efforts to stop taxing retirement incomes because all those folks are leaving the state...

Del. Susan Krebs... Also thanked the Chamber legislative committee…

Regulatory reform commission initiative… Revenues good but unfortunately it is from Capital gains taxes. Whole different posture with Gov. Hogan…

Sen. Justin Ready… also thanked the Chamber… discussed process a bit… real and significant tax relief… We do not have a budget surplus, we have a fund balance.

Del. Trent Kittleman represents a portion of Carroll Co. Regulatory reform. The importance of supporting business. Has one bill that students pass the citizenship test.

×××××

A number of important issues were raised during the question and answer period. A number of folks asked some good questions and the Carroll County Delegation to Annapolis was very forthcoming, transparent, and articulate about many complex topics. Hats off to the elected officials who attended.

Several members of the Board of Ed were there. Bob Lord, Devon Rothschild, Jim Doolan, and Virginia Harrison as well as school superintendent Steve Guthrie.

Carroll County Commissioners Dennis Frazier and Richard Rothschild attended as well as Taneytown Councilwoman Diane Foster and Mayor McCarron.

New Windsor Mayor Neal Roop and Council member Ed Pals grove attended.

A question was asked about automatic voting registration

The problem of high filing fees for personal property taxes…

Mandatory paid sick leave and paid family leave and mandatory … Mandated benefits… have a negative impact… on business.

Need 7 more in the house and 5 in the senate… for veto-proof legislature

High speed internet access badly needed in rural areas. The last mile… necessary for expanding business in rural area. And necessary for supporting Ag, the number 1 business in Carroll County.

A single consolidated time off benefit… combine sick leave, vacation …

Restoration of Highway User Revenues. … New secretary for MDOT…

Dennis Frazier: Last mile will cost 200 million. Last mile will cost Westminster 24 million.

The idea of allowing large grocery stores to sell alcohol. Ready: alcohol is a controlled substance… Allowing the huge big boxes and grocery stores to sell alcohol will damage small businesses and allow alcohol to be too easily available. …

State law that requires 2 year residence registration for manufacturers… small breweries…

Definition of small business

Del. Krebs: Cost of healthcare is driving the budget. Medicaid is a huge cost…

Net out-migration of the wealthiest Marylanders.

Bill to overturn the estate tax relief and exemption.

Redistricting. Gerrymandering. …

The breakfast concluded at 9:29 am.
