The commission would like for applicants to prepare a multi-media presentation or an essay of 500 words or less, about a woman that has had a positive impact.

In January the Westminster Gilbert Commission established a multi-media scholarship contest for the City of Westminster’s celebration of the Year of the Woman in honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. 

The 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, was ratified on August 18, 1920 after a long struggle known as the women's suffrage movement.

On May 3rd, our Time Flies discussion centered on the Westminster Year of the Woman Commission spearheaded by Westminster Councilwoman Ann Gilbert and the leadership of the Westminster Family Center and the Recreation and Parks Department of the City of Westminster.

It was in late February – early March that the commission initially announced a multi-media scholarship contest for the City of Westminster’s celebration of the Year of the Woman. Soon after that the scholarship contest, much of our daily lives were overtaken by the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020.

Although the commission has received some essays, it was recently decided to extend the submission deadline until June 1st

According to the contest guidelines, the commission would like for applicants to prepare a multi-media presentation or an essay of 500 words or less, about a woman that has had a positive impact. Subject matters could include but are not limited to historical or public figures or a woman you know personally. The contest is open to college students or Carroll County school children, whether they are in public or private schools or being home-schooled

Submissions are due by the end of the business day on June 1st, 2020. 

Please email your submission to WESTMINSTERREC@WESTGOV.COM

The subject line must read: YOW SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST.

Please include your name and contact information in the body of the email. The prize to be awarded is $500.00.

The commission was quick to add that this is donated money and not taxpayer money.

Just a few months ago, in January, Westminster Councilwoman Ann Thomas Gilbert gathered many leaders from throughout the county to a meeting to brainstorm how to celebrate the Year of the Woman in Westminster and the many milestones in our local community such as the first women jurors in May 1957.
In Westminster, Gilbert assembled local leaders that included Abby Gruber, Kristen McMasters, Sandra L. Anderson, Stephanie McCown, Jessica Taylor, Heather Mullendore, Melissa Thompson, Kati Townsend, Tasha Cramer, Christina Kuntz, and Val Giovagnoni. For a while, Kevin Dayhoff was the token male in the group. Later I was joined by Steven Jakobovic, the new director of the Historical Society of Carroll County.

The Community Foundation of Carroll County is seeking applicants for the Mike Eaton scholarship fund.

The Community Foundation of Carroll County is seeking applicants for the Mike Eaton scholarship fund.

By Kevin Dayhoff May 3, 2020

Since 2011 a Mike Eaton Scholarship has been awarded annually to recognize inspirational teachers, like Eaton, in the lives of the current graduating class of Westminster High School.

The purpose of the fund is to honor the life of WILLIAM GRANVILLE ”MIKE” EATON by providing a scholarship(s) for a Westminster High School graduating senior(s) and an annual award for an outstanding teacher at that same school both based on the criteria established for this fund in the application

One of the requirements of the scholarship is that the student write an essay about their most inspirational teacher.

More information about the scholarship may be found on the Community Foundation of Carroll County website. Find it at http://tinyurl.com/Mike-Eaton-CFCC.

For a copy of the scholarship application click here.

More information about the life and times of William Granville "Mike" Eaton may be found in article that appeared in the Carroll County Times on March 1, 2019, by Kevin Dayhoff.

An article titled, “Dayhoff: 'Indubitably,' remembering Mike Eaton, who taught so many in our community’ reports, Many folks in Carroll County have heard of William Granville “Mike” Eaton at some point in their life. Eaton taught English and drama in Carroll County Public Schools for 41 years before he retired in 1971 — 36 at Westminster High School.

He was one of the many friendly and kind patriarchs in Carroll County for over a half-century. He passed away from cancer on April 24, 1995; however he maintains to this day, a profound influence over who we are as a community.

Eaton was born in Centerville on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on June 22, 1908. He came to Westminster in 1926 to attend Western Maryland College, where he graduated in 1930. It was in that year that he began his teaching career at Elmer A. Wolfe High School in Union Bridge.

In the early 1930s, he concurrently earned his master’s degree, in 1935, from Columbia University in New York.

After a year at Elmer Wolfe, he taught for three years at Charles Carroll High School in Silver Run before coming to Westminster to teach at the original 1898 Westminster High School on Center Street.

He was there for only one year before the “new” Westminster High School opened on Longwell Avenue, where he taught for the entire life of the building as a high school, in Room 106.

Eaton nurtured future leaders through the Kiwanis Key Club and inspired many students, friends, and colleagues to great success. Among his students was writer, director, and actor Ernest Thompson whose work includes “On Golden Pond.” Thomas has subsequently, over the years, won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and Writer’s Guild of America awards.

Blade Runner - Final scene, "Tears in Rain" Monologue (HD)


“The 200” #amwriting I just had to edit 200 words from a piece in order to make word limit. It made me sad. 200 good, upstanding, and virtuous words made the ultimate sacrifice for that piece. 200 brave souls - now lost. As a matter of fact, one whole paragraph was heard to say, as I shoved them over a cliff: “I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain."

Carroll County Literacy Council Celebrates 40-years

By Westminster Councilmember Kevin Dayhoff

Last Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019, the Literacy Council of Carroll
County celebrated its 40th anniversary with a luncheon at the
Carroll Nonprofit Building.

In attendance were Carroll County Sheriff Jim DeWees,
Circuit Court Judge Richard Titus, Md. St. Delegate Haven Q. Shoemaker, Carroll
Commissioners Dennis Frazier and Steve Wantz, Bernard Jones, Westminster
Councilmembers Ben Yingling and Kevin Dayhoff.

The Literacy Council’s Executive Director Sam Greenholtz was
the master of ceremonies for the event. In addition to his years of work with
the Literacy Council, Greenholtz served on the Westminster Common Council from
1985 to 1991 and for many years was the chair of the Greater Westminster
Development Corporation, a downtown Westminster advocacy organization.

The September newsletter for the Literacy Council reports,
“In the U.S., over 40 million adults have low literacy, including 20% of adults
with a high school diploma. The U.S. ranked 21st in numeracy and 16th in
literacy out of 24 countries in a 2013 assessment of adults’ skills.

“Two-thirds of U.S. adults scored at the two lowest levels
of proficiency in solving problems in technology rich environments. Yet, the
publicly funded adult education system is able to serve only around 2 million
young and older adults per year.”

Fortunately in Carroll County, the Literacy Council is
active in the community in many ways, including its ever-popular annual
spelling bee. Last April was the 20th anniversary of the spelling bee.

According to a history of the council provided by Executive
Director Greenholtz:

“The Literacy Council of Carroll County (LCCC) was founded in April, 1979, by Sister Rosalia, the principal of St. John's Catholic School in Westminster, and Kathryn Sieverts, a Lutheran laywoman. The mission of the organization was to promote literacy and to train tutors to teach phonics, reading, speaking, spelling, and math to youth and adults in Carroll County.

“At the time, we were affiliated with Laubach Literacy Action which later merged with ProLiteracy Worldwide, a parent of ProLiteracy America. We primarily began with students who read at or below a fifth-grade level. The LCCC was formed with the policy of working with anyone regardless race, creed, color, or national origin. We
have always assisted those individuals who may be mentally challenged,
physically disabled, and foreign born, those in substance and alcohol abuse
rehabilitation programs and those who are incarcerated by our legal system.

“The first volunteers worked out of St. John's School, Grace Lutheran Church, Carroll County Public Library, and various members' spare rooms and basements. Judy Ritchie was the first Director. Through the generosity of Grace Lutheran Church, the Council moved into its first office. Marian Carr took over as Director and
Student/Tutor Coordinator in 1988. The Council occupied the second floor (a
three-room suite) of a two-story house at 30 Carroll Street in Westminster. In
1994, in need of more space, the Council moved to the second floor of 95
Carroll Street, Westminster.

“In 1995, Marian Carr turned the reins over to Betsy Fowble as Executive Director, followed by Dee Hines in 1997. In October of 2002, Dee Hines received Carroll County's Most Beautiful Person Award. In 2009, after serving the Carroll Community as a volunteer for over 22 years, Dee Hines retired from her position at the
Literacy Council. Carol Sapora took over as Director. Janet Garcia took over as
Executive Director in December 2011. In June of 2014, Brenda Lewis was named as
Executive Director and served until December of 2014 when Samuel Greenholtz was
appointed and continues in that position.

“Volunteer numbers increased substantially between 1997 and 2006, when the Council moved again to its present home in the Carroll Non-Profit Building, 255 Clifton Boulevard. Laubach International and Literacy Learners of America merged during that time to become ProLiteracy Worldwide, the umbrella organization for most literacy organizations.

“In 2015, Brenda Lewis became the President of the Board of Directors. Past presidents of the Board of Directors include Edie Haschert, Barbara Weir, Dorothy Stoltz, Mike Memphis, Terry Toney, and Lou Scharon.

“The Council receives no government funding and operates on donations from the community, and various grants, along with its fundraising programs. There is never a charge for Council services to the student.

“Along with our normal tutoring program, we have embarked on numerous other programs during our existence. In 1994, the LCCC was called upon to work at the Maryland Central Laundry Camp, a Maryland Department of Corrections minimum security prison. We started with 13 men and when the program was terminated we were teaching 31 men to read and write. (The prison was switched to a short-term facility and there was not enough time to tutor the inmates before they moved on.) 


We have also run a program at the Carroll County Detention Center for the female population. (The men were tutored under a grant through the Community College of Carroll County.) We run a program for court ordered drug and alcohol students at a
rehabilitation facility in southern Carroll County. We have run tutoring
program at Springfield State Hospital. We have found the demand for training is
changing from the 5th grade level we began at to a focus on Pre-GED training as
well as greater demand for ESOL lessons, citizenship training, and work-related
training requirements. Thus, our program has been upgraded over the years to
reflect these changes. Another of our newer programs is working with the
military veterans. We are aiding in many different elements than we have
normally provided to our students. These same programs are available for all
students

“Our tutors represent a broad range of careers and education. They come from a wide variety of professions and work history. The predominate tutors’ group is made up from the field of education but, we have former executives, administrative workers and others among our teaching staff.

“The Carroll County Public Library has been a tremendous supporter of our efforts. They have contributed in numerous ways and have provided us with direct assistance when called upon. McDaniel College has worked with us on numerous programs that are offered to the public especially in the field of ESL (English as Second Language), primarily through the Palabra to Word Student Organization. As a Partner of the Literacy Council they have provided us with student interns over
the years to work with us on various specialized projects and programs. A
relative new partner has been Carroll Community We work closely with BERC, HRS,
and other county organizations to provide training to their clients. We have
partnerships with the Judy Centers, Carroll County Board of Education, Carroll
County Youth Services Bureau, and HSP. We have an excellent relationship with each and every one of the organizations at the Non-Profit Center. We are able to
refer our students to them as well as have them send clients to us.”

Westminster Mayor’s Cup and Miracle on Main Street parade winners announced

Westminster Mayor’s Cup and Miracle on Main Street parade
winners announced

On Dec. 9, 2019 Westminster Mayor Dominick announced the
winners of the Mayor’s Cup contest and the Miracle on Main parade.




At the Dec. 9, 2019 meeting of the Westminster Mayor and
Common Council, Westminster Mayor Joe Dominick announced the winners of the
annual Mayor’s Cup contest and the annual Miracle on Main Street parade
winners.

According to a Dec. 5, 2019 press release by Sandy Anderson,
the Westminster Main Street manager, “The Mayor’s Cup is a long-standing
contest to encourage downtown Westminster businesses to decorate their
storefronts and office windows for the holiday season. The Mayor’s Cup
recognizes the best overall display. The winning business’ name is engraved on
the Cup each year, which is proudly displayed by the winning business.

“This year, 17 businesses offered eye-grabbing entries,
making it difficult for Mayor Dominick to select a winner from all the
outstanding entries. Below are the businesses selected by Mayor Dominick in the
various award categories: Mayor’s Cup Recipient/Best Overall – Flip Yours Fitness
& Wellness; Best Kid Friendly – Flowers by Evelyn; Best Business Promotion
– LUX Boutique; Best Non-Traditional – Ting.”

Mayor Dominick also announced the winner of the Miracle on
Main Street parade. According to information from a Dec. 4, 2019 release from
Abby Gruber, the Westminster Director of Recreation and Parks, “The annual
Miracle on Main Street Parade was held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 5 p.m.
This year, the parade boasted nearly 50 entries ranging from walking groups,
car clubs, marching bands, and floats.

“To encourage well-crafted and brightly lit parade entries,
the City offers a trophy and a $100 cash prize in three different categories:
Spirit of the Season, Best & Brightest, and Main Street Champion. To help
evaluate and fairly determine the winner in each category, judges are selected
from the local business community. The judges are provided with a list of all
parade participants, their corresponding parade numbers, and a list of criteria
to aid in evaluating the entries.

“The 2019 Miracle on Main Street parade winners are: Spirit
of the Season, Carroll County Veterinary Clinic; Best & Brightest, Shelter
Systems Limited; Main Street Champion, White Pine Paving Inc.”

During the awards presentation on Monday evening, Dec. 9th,
Mayor Dominick, said in part, “It is my pleasure this evening to announce the
winners of the 2019 Miracle on Main Street, Electric Holiday Parade. A panel of
three judges consisting of local business owners assessed each parade entry on
theme, detail, and brightness in the following award categories: Best &
Brightest, Spirit of the Season, and Main Street Champion.

“All winners receive $100 gift card, a trophy, and of course
bragging rights.

“First I would like to recognize Margaret Welliver, Lenny
Mills, Dave Strevig, & Randy Rickels accepting on behalf of Shelter Systems
Limited for their winning entry that earned the award for Best & Brightest

“The next award goes to Lynn Wimmer & Check Cregger
accepting tonight on behalf of Carroll County Veterinary Clinic for their entry
that best reflected the Spirit of the Season.

“And last but certainly not least will I would like to
recognize White Pine Paving as the Main Street Champion. Unfortunately
representatives from White Pine Paving could not join us this evening but staff
from the recreation and parks department will see that they receive their
award.

“A big thank you to all of you and to all of our 2019 parade
entries; your creativity, time and attention to detail make this parade a proud
Westminster tradition. The Miracle on Main Street Electric Holiday Parade could
not exist without your support and participation.

“And speaking of support on behalf of the City of
Westminster I would like extend our sincerest gratitude to Mark Degasperi,
owner of Interstate Battery for his steadfast support of this phenomenal
community event. Every year Interstate Battery provides power sources for all
electric parade entries plus Interstate Battery staff members are available
onsite at parade line up and disbandment to help safely illuminate and
breakdown the floats.”

Hat Tip: Lisa Murray Gregory. The Human Condition with Lisa Gregory

How Journalism is Changing in Today's World NOVEMBER 17, 2019

In today's world journalism has become a risky business. Newspapers are closing up shop every day in light of the digital age and in many ways it seems the profession is under attack both figuratively and literally. Reporters are being gunned down in newsrooms and the public is becoming more and more suspicious of the profession as the result of the concept of fake news. Bob Blubaugh is the editor of the Carroll County Times in Maryland and has been in the journalism field first as a sports reporter and now as an editor for over 20 years. He is experiencing these concerns firsthand and yet remains committed to the idea of community journalism and the important role it continues to play in our lives.

The profession of journalism is in a precarious state these days as a result of the concept of "fake news," the influence of social media and the threat to the very existence of print media as a result of the digital age.

Bob Blubaugh, editor of the Carroll County Times in Maryland, recently talked with me for my first episode of The Human Condition with Lisa Gregory. He gives an insider's view of the challenges editors and reporters are facing, including the very real threats and violence inflicted upon on them, as well as talking about his love of community journalism and how important it is now more than ever.
