And you trip on a hit of acid
You gotta work for the man
But your biggest moneymakers' flaccid
You gotta keep your shit together
With your feet on the ground
There ain't no one gonna listen

EAGLE ARCHIVE: From the rails to the pews, new churches are big deal in Carroll County

EAGLE ARCHIVE: From the rails to the pews, new churches are big deal in Carroll County

Posted 7/18/10 by Carroll Eagle
I have really never thought about taking the train to New Windsor from Westminster, but apparently that's what they used to do in 1897, according to a July 3, 1897, news item in the now out-of-print Westminster newspaper, The American Sentinel.

"This afternoon at one o'clock, the corner-stone of the new Methodist Episcopal Church, about to be erected at New Windsor, will be laid with Masonic ceremonies, by Door to Virtue Lodge, of this city.

"The members of the lodge will meet at Masonic Hall, in the Wantz Building, at 11:45 this morning, and leave for New Windsor on the 11:53 train."

A week later, on July 10, 1897, the Sentinel carried a front-page story about the fruits of that train journey -- the laying-of-the-cornerstone ceremony for the new church for St. Paul's United Methodist Church in New Windsor...

Haddad to step down as Carroll County Chamber of Commerce president


Haddad to step down as Carroll County Chamber of Commerce president http://tinyurl.com/28xlyws

He will take his place in a long history of business leaders with the chamber.

http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2010/07/haddad-to-step-down-as-carroll-county.html

July 7, 2010

By Kevin Dayhoff


The president of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, Richard Haddad, 68, has announced that he will be stepping down from his post.

Haddad, who has held the reins of the chamber since he was hired on February 27, 2006, is looking forward to transitioning into retirement after a long career in management, according to a release from the local business umbrella organization early Wednesday morning.

“Haddad, and his wife, Valorie, are in the process of selling their home and moving to something smaller now that their five children are grown,” observed the announcement.

The Haddad’s “plan to remain in Carroll County. The ‘downsizing’ is a step toward retirement for Haddad, but he expects that he will continue working in some capacity, possibly on a contract basis, for some 12 to 18 months after leaving the chamber.”

In his retirement announcement Haddad noted, “I can honestly say, that in my entire career I’ve never enjoyed a job as much as I’ve enjoyed being chamber president. The chamber is a great organization with a great staff, it operates in a great community, and I’m proud to have been a part of its history.”

The local chamber has had a long and storied history in its role in promoting local businesses.

The roots of the present-day chamber date back to the first meeting of the “Westminster Chamber of Commerce” on Wednesday, July 23, 1924. The Westminster Chamber of Commerce became the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 1, 1973.

An old newspaper clipping on July 25, 1924 documents that T. W. Mather Jr., Charles W. Klee and C. Edgar Nusbaum called a meeting of "75 citizens" at the Westminster Fire Hall on Wednesday afternoon, July 23, 1924: “to consider and hear the views of the business men as to the advisability of forming a Chamber of Commerce for this city.”

According to a history of the chamber written by Diana Scott, the chamber did, at one time, maintain an office in Westminster City Hall.

The original Westminster chamber was formed 26 years after another business organization in Westminster, called the "Retailers' Association of Westminster, Maryland," formed on April 6, 1898 "for the purpose of the development and growth of the city and for mutual protection" against the railroad. Of note, though, is the fact that members of the "Merchants and Manufacturers Association" were invited. Apparently this association pre-dated the Retailers' Association.

It was four years ago that Haddad joined the ranks of the distinguished men and women who have promoted the business interests of Carroll County. In 1924, the officers included a who’s who of local business owners and business leaders.

Officers elected in 1924 were: C. Edgar Nusbaum, president; Miller Richardson, vice president; and executive committee members Joseph Mathias, Carroll Albaugh, D. S. Gehr, W. H. Davis, William N. Keefer, Joseph E. Hunter and T. W. Mather Jr.

Today the chamber represents over 650 businesses and organizations to serve as a catalyst to foster the business environment of Carroll County.

Haddad, who is originally from Brooklyn, New York, first came to Maryland in 1971. He worked in the 1960s as the Equal Employment Opportunity program director for CitiBank in New York.

In Maryland, he first lived in Howard County before moving to Carroll County about 14-years ago. Once he arrived in Carroll County, he became a member of the local chamber and served as a volunteer in a number of capacities including its business and education committee, and a brief tenure on the board of directors.

In 2006, the “combination of his executive management experience and his volunteer work for several Maryland chambers including the Carroll County chamber was attractive to the board,” noted the release.

Haddad, whose particular field of management expertise is human resources, “counts as among his major accomplishments at the Chamber, the establishment of the chamber’s human resources committee, which provides HR programming and services to the small business community.

“The Carroll County Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management, which grew out of the chamber’s HR committee and collaborates with it, focuses on the professional development of HR practitioners and managers in the county.

Haddad also cites “an upgrading of the chamber website to offer features such as online event registration and payment, and a strengthening of the Leadership Carroll program as among his major contributions during his tenure as president.

“The chamber partners with Carroll Community College in offering the Leadership Carroll program. The program now has over 300 alumni.”

“We’re going to miss Rich,” said Nancy Lynch, owner of My Personal Chef and chair of the chamber’s board of directors, in the retirement announcement.

“We were prepared for this announcement and we certainly wish him the best of luck,” said Lynch who added that a search for a new President would begin shortly.

Haddad will not be leaving the chamber for two to three months, and is expected to work with the board in the search for his successor. “I want to do whatever I can,” he said, “to ensure a smooth transition.”

Since the chamber’s board of directors have been aware of Haddad’s plans to step down for some time, preparations are underway to find a new president.

The Wisdom of “Silent Cal”


July 7, 2010 The Wisdom of “Silent Cal”

Kevin E. Dayhoff http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=3849

(1923 photo of "Silent Cal" Calvin Coolidge by John Garo)


The Fourth of July has come and gone. The fireworks exclaimed its last hurrah along with the Ooos and Ahhhs. The remains of the day include a few partially eaten hot dogs, a half-bag of potato chips, and the sticky, syrupy goo that we can call Maryland’s heat and humidity that clung to your skin and followed you home.

The flag that flew proudly on the rickety pole attached to the front of the house like a patriotic necktie has been retired for the day.

For those who enjoy historical trivia, there may have been a mention that two of the framers of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, and his colleague in history, John Adams, both died on July 4, 1826, exactly 50 years after the signing the famous document we celebrate every year.

In my household, there are two celebrations that take place every 4th of July. There is a celebration of the excitement that we live in, what remains a somewhat, a free country. We have a moment of reflection for those who have gone before us so that we may continue to fight for our freedoms and, of course, a celebration of “Silent Cal Day.”

[...]


Now I can only be sure that you share my excitement at this point in time, and you feel a profound increase in your dopamine levels. Please understand that this is a normal reaction known as the “Coolidge Effect.”

However, before you feel a subsequent effect on your limbic system, get a grip on yourself and read on about this great man.Here: http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=3849

All photos by Kevin Dayhoff - Carroll County celebrates the Fourth by Kevin Dayhoff July 4, 2010

Carroll County celebrated the Fourth of July at the Carroll County Farm Museum.

As the temperatures soared in the 90s, the celebrations began at 12 noon at the Farm Museum, 500 S. Center St., Westminster, with music that included the U.S. Navy Band “Country Current,” Carroll Jazz Singers, Carroll County Cloggers, the Elderly Brothers Quartet; a mule-pulled wagon tour of the grounds, crafts, and food.

Later in the evening at 9:30 p.m, the skies over the Farm Museum pond lit-up to everyone’s delight as fireworks soared in to the night sky to celebrate the Fourth in a grand style.

Thousands jammed into the Farm Museum and the adjacent Agriculture Center grounds to view the show.
