Addressing Lincoln and more at Taneytown breakfast by Kevin Dayhoff

Addressing Lincoln and more at Taneytown breakfast [Eagle Archives]

Good friends and good business go well together at the Taneytown Business Breakfast By Kevin Dayhoff September 18, 2013

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-eagle-archives-20130918,0,6733018.story

At the most recent Taneytown Business Breakfast, State Senator and historian Joe Getty, R-Baltimore and Carroll County, delighted an audience of almost 100 with insights on the local perspective of President Abraham Lincoln, Taneytown and the Battle of Gettysburg….

The English author, essayist and biographer, Samuel Johnson once said: “There are two types of knowledge.  One is knowing a thing. The other is knowing where to find it.”

Well, where to find it is at the Taneytown business breakfast. If you have ever attended, you know you may arrive to find a few strangers in the room, but you never leave without making new friends, connections and learning some new way to charge ahead into the day and make a difference in our community.

Audrey Cimino of the Community Foundation of Carroll County could not agree more. “Oh my, - without a doubt, this is the best business breakfast in the area,” said Cimino as she juggled her breakfast in one hand, handed-out literature in the other hand and fielded questions from folks right and left including Kevin McLeod, the Program Director at Silver Oak Academy, and Steve Wantz, the past president of the Carroll County Volunteer Emergency Services Association.


Also see: Battle of the Alamo coincided with Carroll's independence efforts

By Kevin Dayhoff, September 26, 2013




In October 1833 a referendum was held, in what we now know as the area encompassing Baltimore, Carroll and Frederick counties, on whether a new county was to be created. The vote failed, 593 to 554, although it was later speculated that it failed because of voter irregularities in Baltimore County.

Manchester, which had been against the idea of forming a separate (Carroll) county, “exultantly fired [a cannon] in the direction of defeated Westminster” after the vote was taken.

Subsequently a bill was introduced in 1835 and passed the General Assembly on March 25, 1836 to form Carroll County.  This act was confirmed on January 19, 1837. It took only a war of words that lasted about 50 years, but Carroll Countians had finally become an independent county.

This portion of Carroll County history came to mind earlier in the month as I pondered the events of Feb. 23 through March 6, 1836 while I studied a small clay, mud and straw building in a far-off land, now known as Texas.

Many will recognize the dates as when the Battle of the Alamo took place in San Antonio Texas. I took a few days in early September to tour the Alamo and San Antonio and study how its history compared with events in Carroll County in the same time frame.

With the exception of Manchester getting a bit feisty in 1833 and about three military campaigns during the American Civil War, Carroll County history is remarkably free of bloodshed and violence.

Although a small group of missionaries visited the San Antonio area as early as the 1675-1691 time period, it was not until 1718 that a mission outpost was built on the site of the Alamo. A more permanent building was started in 1744… http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-eagle-archives-20130926,0,6733017.story

And see: Carroll Lutherans started meeting in 1747

By Kevin Dayhoff, September 3, 2013


The Lutheran church in Maryland can possibly trace its roots as far back as 1747 when small numbers of Lutherans and German Reformers began meeting in private homes primarily in northern Carroll and Frederick Counties.

“The first church building in Carroll County was erected by the Lutheran and Reformed congregations of Manchester in 1760…,” according to a history, “Carroll County Maryland," written by Nancy Warner.

In Westminster, Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church is celebrating its 146th anniversary this month. The historic church located at 21 Carroll St. in Westminster was chartered September 20-23, 1867, according to various accounts including a history of Grace Lutheran published in 1967… http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-eagle-archives-20130903,0,6274260.story

Taneytown man armed with hammer shot and killed by local police Christmas evening



The peace and tranquility of a white Christmas in Carroll County was shattered Tuesday evening as word spread quickly through the community of a deadly shooting in Taneytown involving a police officer.

The news comes at a time when many have grown weary of bad news. Not even the unexpected late snowfall on Christmas Eve could overcome the heavy hearts of many just weeks after the December 14 shooting death of 26 people, most of them children, in an elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

Then on Christmas Eve, much of the local news media reported that a gunman in upstate New York allegedly set fire to his house and ambushed and killed two volunteer firefighters and wounded two more who were responding to the fire.

Bad news involving firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical personnel always travels quickly in Carroll County that has long been understood as being the home of many of Maryland’s first responders.

Late in the evening on Christmas Day, Greg Shipley, a spokesperson for the Maryland State Police confirmed the incident and released additional details that a Taneytown police officer had shot and killed a man who had threatened the lives of several police officers in the otherwise peaceful northwestern Carroll County community.

Police say that Edward L. Becker, Jr., 26, of the unit-block of Commerce Drive, Taneytown, Md, was pronounced dead at the Carroll Hospital Center, as a result of the incident.

According to Shipley, “A Carroll County man armed with a hammer and acting disorderly was fatally wounded by a Taneytown Police Department officer when he failed to surrender and advanced threateningly at the officer.

The state police say that shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Christmas Day, “the parents of Becker called 911 and reported he had been drinking and was acting disorderly. Becker’s father reported his son was smashing windows out of his truck with a hammer…”

Three Taneytown police department officers responded to the area of the address on Commerce Street, according the police report. At the scene they “saw Becker walking down the street toward them.

“They exited their vehicles and began shouting commands to Becker to drop the hammer and surrender. Becker continued to approach. The officers, who were all in uniform and marked patrol cars, retreated down the street and positioned themselves behind their police cars. 

“The investigation indicates the officers continued to shout commands to Becker to drop the hammer and surrender. Becker ignored the commands and continued to approach the officers…

After Becker got to within approximately an arm’s length of an officer and raised the hammer, one of the officers fired his service weapon, striking Becker.

Police at the scene administered first aid and called emergency medical personnel to the scene.

“The officer involved is a four and one-half year veteran of the Taneytown Police Department…,” say police. The Taneytown police officer has been placed on routine administrate leave by Taneytown Police Chief William Tyler, “which is procedure in police-involved shootings.” 

Tyler “requested the police-involved shooting be investigated by the Maryland State Police homicide unit and troopers from the Westminster Barrack responded to the scene to conduct the investigation, according to Shipley.

The investigation is continuing. Upon completion, it will be forwarded to the Carroll County State's Attorney's Office for review... Taneytown man armed with hammer shot and killed by local police Christmas evening

Overnight shooting and robbery in Taneytown investigated, two suspects still at large



By Kevin Dayhoff



Maryland State Police have three men in custody and are looking for two more suspects in a shooting and robbery which erupted in the early morning hours just outside of Taneytown.

The three suspects are currently detained at the Westminster State Police barrack awaiting criminal charges as police continue to sort out the details of the crime.

The victims have been identified as Alan J. Kent, 26, and Samantha L. Stanley, 19; both of Taneytown. According to a release from the state police, Stanley was not physically hurt.

At around 2:23 a.m., Friday, police and emergency medical personnel were alerted to respond to reports of a shooting and armed robbery in 3900-block of Old Taneytown Road, Taneytown.

Upon arrival, police discovered that Kent had been “struck in the back of the head by what may have been an expandable baton,” and wounded by a gunshot.

The suspects had fled the scene.

According to a state police report, “Kent sustained a gunshot wound to the leg and was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he is being treated for what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.”

The preliminary findings reported by the state police reveal Stanley was visiting at Kent’s residence when male suspects arrived at the home about 2:00 a.m. and called Kent outside.”

Police report that while one male remained with Kent, three other men came into the house, where a handgun was displayed and pointed at her and information was demanded “about what was in the home.”

Stanley, according to police, “said the man shot Kent’s dog when it came toward the suspect. The dog has been transported to a veterinarian for treatment…

“After removing a suitcase from the house, the victims said all four suspects left in a light colored Ford Explorer.”

An alert by police was broadcast on police scanners for the suspects. Police units from area departments responded to the area to assist with the search, including Carroll County sheriff’s office deputies and officers from the Taneytown Police Department.

Shortly after, “a Taneytown police officer searching the area spotted a light-colored Ford Explorer on Courier Court in Taneytown,” say police.

When the officer stopped the vehicle, “two African American males fled on foot and were not located. The officer took two other males into custody.”

Subsequently, “police observed what appears to be blood on the vehicle and said an expandable baton was visible inside the truck…

“The vehicle was towed to the Westminster Barrack where it will be processed for evidence after a search warrant is obtained.”

Details concerning the apprehension of a third suspect have not been released.

Maryland State Police investigators from the Westminster barrack are continuing the investigation and troopers from the State Apprehension Team, sheriff’s deputies and Taneytown police officers are assisting with the search for the remaining suspects.

The additional suspects are described as two African American males. “One is about 5’7” tall, with black, buzzed-cut hair, who was wearing a black jacket and black pants. The other at-large suspect is described as wearing a dark bandana across his face, a black jacket, and a black hood over his head.”

Explore Carroll: Municipal league convention is hot spot for meeting, and training, Carroll officials


A seagull chattered away in the parking lot of the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City (Md.) as, indoors, hundreds of elected officials gathered for the Maryland Municipal League annual meeting, June 26-29.

Just inside, in the front lobby, Taneytown Mayor Jim McCarron and city administrator Henry Heine; Union Bridge Mayor Perry Jones; Hampstead Mayor Chris Nevin; and Westminster Mayor Kevin Utz and Councilmember Dennis Frazier gathered to compare notes after attending a roundtable forum with state cabinet secretaries.

This year the MML, which represents 157 Maryland cities and towns, is celebrating its 75th anniversary and its annual meeting focused on classes, workshops, lectures, roundtable discussions and seminars that spanned four days, beginning as early as 7:30 a.m. and lasting until 10:30 p.m.

Asked about Monday’s training sessions and presentations, Utz said he had a chance to talk with U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who had addressed the MML opening session... http://www.explorecarroll.com/news/5514/municipal-league-convention-hot-spot-meeting-training-carroll-officials/

Baltimore Co. police have identified man found in burning car

Baltimore Co. police have identified man found in burning car just outside Hampstead last week
March 18, 2010 By Kevin Dayhoff

http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2010/03/baltimore-co-police-have-identified-man.html Labels: Carroll Co Dist Hampstead, Carroll Co Dist Taneytown, Current Events, MD co Baltimore Co, MD co Baltimore Co issues, MD co Baltimore Co police

Baltimore County police have identified that a Taneytown man was the victim of a vehicle fire last week. Officials say the man is John David Metcalf, 48, of the 4600-block of Buffington Lane.

The autopsy revealed no evidence that John David Metcalf had been the victim of a crime, say Baltimore County police.

The incident occurred last Friday about 1:42 a.m., as firefighters and police responded to a vehicle on fire in the 4600 block of Black Rock Road of Upperco in the northern Baltimore County, just across the county line from Hampstead, Carroll County.

At the time, a man found inside the burning car was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the victim was identified from dental records. The police investigation revealed that “Metcalf had been ill just prior to leaving work. It appears that while driving home, he stopped on the parking lot of Grace United Methodist Church. While parked at the location, a fire started in the engine of the vehicle. The victim’s death was caused by the car fire.”

The car fire last Friday is one of a rash of similar incidents in recent memory.

The Eagle reported yesterday that it was “Arson (that) caused $26,000 in total damage to two cars and a school bus in Mount Airy on Twin Arch Road.

Various media reports indicate similar car fire incidents in the southern York County, Pa., the Parkton area in northern Baltimore County and just last spring there was another death as the result of a car fire in a church parking in Hampstead

If hell owned an airline, Route 140 would be its landing strip.

DAYHOFF: Please enjoy Honoring the 'Hell Drivers of Taneytown,' in 1948 and today

Eagle Archive By Kevin Dayhoff



This month in history, 51 years to be exact, Taneytown bore witness to a "Dive Bomber Crash" at the fairgrounds.

A story in an October 1948 newspaper offers this exciting preview:

"The amazing 'Dive Bomber' crash, in which a daredevil sends a speeding stock sedan hurdling a two-ton truck and deliberately crashes his machine into a parked car, is listed as one of the featured thrillers scheduled at the Carroll County Fair grounds..."

[…]

What a hoot.

I must confess, I had never heard of the "Hell Drivers" before. In fact, I always thought "hell drivers" was a reference to the friendly folks with whom we "share" Route 140.

If hell owned an airline, Route 140 would be its landing strip.

[…]

Two Killed In Carroll Co. Plane Crash

TWO KILLED IN CARROLL CO. PLANE CRASH

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 8, 2009

(Keymar, MD) The investigation is continuing into this morning’s plane crash in northwestern Carroll County that took the lives of both persons aboard.

The victims are identified as Robert H. Kociemba, 61, of the 700-block of St. George-Barber Road, Davidsonville, Md., who is believed to have been the pilot, and Letty (nmn) Williams, 66, of the 3800-block of Glebe Meadow Way, Edgewater, Md. The two were said to have been friends.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene by members of the Taneytown Volunteer Fire Department. A forensic examiner for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner responded to the scene and ordered the bodies of both victims transported to Baltimore for autopsies.

At about 7:30 a.m. today, Maryland state troopers from the Westminster Barracks were dispatched to the area of Sharrett Road, just off Rt. 194 in Keymar, for the report of an aircraft crash. Arriving troopers found the two-seat aircraft crashed in a cornfield, about one-quarter mile from the Keymar Airpark, a privately owned airstrip southwest of Taneytown.

The preliminary investigation indicates the victims had taken off from the airpark just minutes before the crash. Their destination was unknown. Troopers contacted federal aviation officials who responded to the scene and are conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash.

The aircraft is believed to be a Golden Circle Air T-Bird II, classified by the FAA as a light sport aircraft. The engine and propeller in this type of aircraft are located behind the pilot and passenger.

Troopers learned from the owner of the airpark that Kociemba flew from his airstrip two to three times a week and had rented hangar space from him for about four years. Kociemba was said to have been an experienced pilot.
