Facebook rethinks the fate of your posts after you die | PCWorld

Facebook rethinks the fate of your posts after you die | PCWorld: "

By Zach Miners @zachminers Feb 21, 2014  

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2100400/facebook-rethinks-what-happens-to-your-posts-after-you-die.html#tk.nl_today

What will happen to your Facebook account when you die? Facebook has been giving it some thought, and it’s come up with what it hopes is a better way to deal with a sensitive issue.
When a Facebook user dies, the person’s mourners can ask Facebook to memorialize the account. Until now, if an account was memorialized its visibility was restricted to friends only.
“This meant that people could no longer see the account or any of its content unless they were Facebook friends with the person who passed away,” Facebook said in a post explaining the changes.
But starting Friday, memorialized accounts will be left as they are, so that posts are visible to whomever the user intended.

Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands – Charles Schelle Bradenton Herald

Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands – Charles Schelle Bradenton Herald

Gr8 article on Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands by @ImYourChuck http://www.bradenton.com/2014/02/20/5002473/anna-maria-ranked-third-among.html

BY CHARLES SCHELLE cschelle@bradenton.com February 20, 2014


ANNA MARIA ISLAND -- TripAdvisor has named Anna Maria Island the No. 3 island in the United States, up a spot from last year's No. 4 ranking.

The rating is based on the second annual Traveler's Choice Island awards from the website that compiles ratings and recommendations from travelers.

The TripAdvisor ranking is incredibly important to tourism in Anna Maria, notes Elliott Falcione, executive director for the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

"TripAdvisor is really our biggest critic when it comes to visitation," Falcione said. "For them to rank Anna Maria with its character and Old Florida environment, it shows once again it's one of the top places to visit in the United States."


According to a TripAdvisor.com site poll, 72 percent of U.S. respondents plan on visiting an island in 2014. Marco Island topped the list, with Chincoteague Island, Va., coming in second. Key West was the only other Florida island to make the list at No. 10.


Top 10 Islands in the U.S.: 1. Marco Island, Florida 2. Chincoteague Island, Virginia 3. Anna Maria Island, Florida 4. San Juan Island, Washington 5. Maui, Hawaii 6. Kauai, Hawaii 7. Island of Hawaii, Hawaii 8. Nantucket, Massachusetts 9. Hilton Head, South Carolina 10. Key West, Florida

Mitchell K. Alexander, McDaniel College director of Event Services

February 19, 2014


I learned today from my friend on Facebook, Mahlia Joyce that my dear friend Mitch Alexander has passed away from a heart attack… I am so sad and my heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. Mitch was a wonderful friend for many-many years. He was always good for a big hug, a huge smile and a kind word.

Dr. Ethan A. Seidel wrote:

Rest in peace Mitch...

We regret to inform the McDaniel community that Mitchell K. Alexander, director of Event Services, passed away today, Feb. 19, following a heart attack. He earned his bachelor’s degree in History with a minor in Education from WMC in 1980 and worked in Student Affairs as a part-time Decker Center building manager during the evenings and weekends. While an undergraduate here, he was named to Who’s Who Among American College Students and the recipient of the Lynn F. Gruber Leadership Award

After teaching middle school science for a year at Saint Francis Academy in Baltimore, Mitchell returned to the College as assistant director of College Activities. In 1986, he completed his master’s degree in School Administration. He left for a promotion in 1988 and served as director of Student Activities at Post College in Waterbury, Connecticut. He returned 16 months later to WMC as student activities director.

In a 1993 edition of the student newspaper, Mitchell was described as having, “the whole campus in his hands.” His legacy is one of empowering student groups to organize and create successful events for the campus community. More recently, his campus knowledge was invaluable for his expertise and guidance for event staging and set-ups.

He is survived by his wife Mildred Artis Alexander, class of 1981, and their two children, Blake and Paige.

Information regarding funeral services will be shared when available.

Panama Canal opened markets for Carroll farmers





The Panama Canal officially opened on Aug. 14, 1914, when the SS Ancon sailed the newly constructed 48-mile waterway from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. That path linking the two bodies of water on the Isthmus of Panama is mentioned a number of times in Carroll County history.

Distinguished international journalist Sadie Kneller Miller, who was born in Westminster, worked for many years for Leslie's Illustrated Weekly. She covered the early years of the building of the canal around 1908, according to research by Mary Ann Ashcraft for the Historical Society of Carroll County.

The opening of the canal gave a much-needed boost to Carroll County agriculture, as it shaved more than 7,000 miles off the trip by ship around South America to markets on the west coast of the United States and Asia for Carroll County corn, wheat, soybeans, canned goods and meat products.

The year the canal opened was a critical one in the history of Carroll County farming. It marked the end of an era that began in 1896 that agricultural historian Carol Lee referred to as the "Golden Age." … http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0216-20140217,0,3710992.story

[…]

It seems that my invitation to join Biden and the mayor got lost in the mail. So I took matters in my own hands and visited the canal, the port of Colon, and Panama City for a history tour this past January. I also had a stopover for an eco-tour of portions of Costa Rica and San Jose. … http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0216-20140217,0,3710992.story

St. Paul's Episcopal Church "Historic Key West's Church"

St. Paul's Episcopal Church
"Historic Key West's Church"
401 Duval St, Key West, FL 33040
305-296-5142
Rector, The Reverend Larry D. Hooper

According to the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church website:

St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the Bishop of New York, the City Council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established. In 1831 the Council gave notice of a public meeting to establish and Episcopal Church and a committee was appointed.

The first rector was the Reverend Sanson K. Brunot, who arrived December 23, 1832. He held the first service on Christmas Day 1832 in the County Courthouse on Jackson Square. Since there was no church building or rectory Brunot became a permanent houseguest of Vestryman William Whitehead.

The first Vestry was elected April 8, 1833.

Land for a church site was given by the widow of John William Charles Fleming in 1832. The only stipulation was that her husband’s remains stay where they were. He is still buried on the grounds, but the actual site is unknown.

The original church, made of coral rock, was built in 1838/1839. The building when completed was 38 by 58 feet and the total cost of construction was $6,500.00. This building was totally destroyed by a hurricane on October 11, 1846.

The second church, a wooden structure, measured 28 by 66 feet. The first service was held in this building June 30, 1848. The church was consecrated on January 4, 1851 by The Right Reverend C.E. Gadsden, Bishop of South Carolina.

In 1857 a rectory was erected on the corner of Duval and Eaton Street, facing Eaton. The Rev. Osgood
E. Herrick was the first in a long line of rectors to call it home.

The church was growing steadily and the seating capacity of 350 was becoming inadequate. This was
when St. Peter’s was established (1875) and the Spanish Mission of St. John’s followed.

The second church was destroyed in the Great Fire of Key West on March 31, 1886. By some good fortune the Rectory survived undamaged. Church rebuilding began immediately and the third church was completed in 1887. This structure, constructed of wood, stood in the center of the block facing Eaton Street. It was approximately 58 by 98 feet.

In 1890, the Vestry voted to purchase a chime of bells. Once installed, the first chime of bells within
Florida was inaugurated Palm Sunday morning, March 22, 1891 at 10:00 am.

On October 11, 1909 another disaster struck and the church was destroyed by a hurricane. The parish hall, (completed in 1904), survived and was used for services. The Rectory also survived this storm. The plans for the new church were approved in 1911. The new structure would be constructed of concrete. The church would also be located at the corner of Duval and Eaton Streets. This required the moving of the Rectory to its current location in 1914. The first service in the current building was on June 8, 1919. During this period many of the stained glass windows were ordered and installation began in 1920. The organ arrived in 1931, in time for the Christmas services.

A major restoration of the church was begun in 1991 to save the building from collapse. The concrete used in the construction had been mixed with sea water and beach sand, which caused the steel reinforcing within the walls to rust and expand. This in turn caused many of the walls and columns to split. Work was completed in 1993 at a cost of nearly one million dollars.

Today the church continues to stand as a beacon within the diverse cultural community of Key West. The church is open daily for prayer, meditation and visiting. Many concerts and other community events take place here and St. Paul’s plays a positive role in the community, artistically and spiritually.
