High school sports have always played an important role in Carroll County. Although one may have a lively discussion as to which sport is the favorite in the county, there can no doubt that basketball — and wrestling — provide a great respite from Carroll County's cold miserable winter weather.

Many years ago, the old Westminster Armory on Longwell Avenue was the site of many sporting events in the community, especially basketball.

American Sentinel, January 29, 1898: The Hotel Question in Silver Run


Silver Run Items—The hotel question is again being discussed among the people of our village. There was a new applicant around for signers, but we cannot say at present whether he will succeed in procuring them or not.

There have been no hotels in this place since last May, and since that time every thing has moved along quietly and all appear to be as happy and hearty as they were before the hotels were closed. But it seems that some of those that do feel happy and hearty since the hotels are closed are still not contented.

It is rumored that some of them that fought hard to have the hotels closed last spring are now giving their consent to have them opened again. This may be a false report, which we hope it is, and if it is not, hereafter we cannot judge our good people by their appearance at first sight.

A 1st. Told ya Microsoft is behind the cable software Its got the cust service


A 1st. I had never received the "blue screen of death" before on my cable TV screen... Told ya Microsoft is behind the cable software. Cable TV - Comcast has got the horrid customer service down pat. Now comes the blue screen death. Next will come the invasive upgrades from heck. I'm just saying.

last year it was the Comcast digital cable box hardware upgrade - from hell. It took an enormous amount of time, several false starts and lots of time on the phone with "customer service." Now comes the software upgrade...

Baltimore football championship seasons have always started in Westminster … so should we be worried?

Baltimore football championship seasons have always started in Westminster ... so should we be worried?



Many Carroll County residents are getting a case of nostalgic Super Bowl fever as they look forward to Sunday's AFC championship contest between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots.

For more than 120 years — since football debuted at then-Western Maryland College on Oct. 31, 1891 — football has been a part of the history of Carroll County.

Not to be overlooked is the fact that since July 1949, Baltimore football teams have held summer practice in Westminster. Names like Raymond Berry, Jim Parker, Art Donovan, Gino Marchetti, Lenny Moore, Eugene (Big Daddy) Lipscomb, Alan Ameche, and Wilbur (Weeb) Ewbank, just to mention a few, have become an important part of our Carroll County cultural history.

And yes, there is also that quarterback that was cut by the Pittsburg Steelers in 1956.

What was his name? Oh yeah, right. Johnny Unitas.

Unbelievable. According to an old history of the Baltimore Colts in my files, "Unitas was cut by… http://www.baltimoresun.com/explore/carroll/news/community/ph-ce-eagle-archive-0122-20120119,0,3298374.story

Auth. MSP the Snow Emergency Plan is in effect at 0200hrs for Carroll County


The Maryland State Police put the Maryland snow emergency plan in effect for Carroll County MD at 2 a.m.

The Maryland Department of Transportation announced that the Maryland State Police put the Maryland snow emergency plan in effect at 2 a.m. Saturday morning for Carroll County.

Previously the snow emergency plan went into effect the previous Friday evening for much of Western Maryland counties: at 11 p.m. for Allegany County; 10:30 p.m. for Garrett County and 11:30 p.m. for Washington County.

According to the department of transportation, the state police declare snow emergencies after receiving input from the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Once the snow emergency has been declared, parking is prohibited on streets and roads that are designated as snow emergency routes and the snow tires, all weather tires and or chains are required for vehicles traveling on the roadways.

When checked at 2:45 a.m., the National Weather Service forecast for Westminster and Carroll County had a “winter weather advisory posted.” “Snow before 4 am, then snow, freezing rain, and sleet. Low around 26. East wind around 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch possible. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.”

For Saturday night the weather service was forecasting mostly cloudy skies. But most importantly for Ravens fans, the Sunday forecast says, “A slight chance of rain, freezing rain, and sleet after noon. Increasing clouds, with a high near 33. East wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.” And later Sunday night, Rain likely, possibly mixed with freezing rain, becoming all rain after 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 32. East wind between 3 and 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.”

Maryland Senate Session Adjourned in Memory of Airman 1st Class Matthew Seidler



Maryland Senate Session Adjourned in Memory of Airman 1st Class Matthew Seidler - Marylanders for Joe Getty January 18, 2012

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin and I attended the funeral yesterday for Airman 1st Class Matthew Seidler. In our official capacities, we offered condolences from all Maryland citizens to the family for their loss.

Today, at the end of the Senate legislative session, I moved that the Senate adjourn in memory of Airman 1st Class Seidler as a tribute to this Maryland Fallen Hero.

Seidler was 24-years-old and lived in Westminster where he graduated from Westminster High School in 2006.

When he joined the Air Force, he was accepted into the elite EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) unit. He was well-aware of the dangers he faced - the EOD personnel comprise only 1% of the Air Force but suffer 25% of the casualties.

On January 5, 2012, Seidler was part of a military convey of 27 vehicles engaged in hostile combat operations in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Earlier that day, his unit had defused two IEDs (improvised explosive devices) so that the convoy could continue its maneuvers. Tragically, his truck was hit by a third IED that killed Seidler and two other airmen.

The article by Kevin Dayhoff of the Carroll Eagle does an excellent job of capturing the outpouring of emotion and the honor and dignity given to this local hero during the funeral at Sol Levinson's & Bros. in Reisterstown. (click here)

Please keep the family of Airman 1st Class Matthew Seidler in your prayers.
