Liberty Reservoir Day celebrates local watershed on Sat., July 26, 2014 9 to 1 [Eagle Archives] http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2014/07/liberty-reservoir-day-celebrates-local_26.html


Liberty Reservoir Day celebrates local watershed on Saturday July 26, 2014. Baltimore’s Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, co-chair of of the US Conference of Mayors Water Council, will be in attendance and is looking forward to seeing all of you.

There will be lots of entertainment and big trucks for the kids to climb aboard…


Baltimore Public Works Director Rudolph S. Chow said that with events like Liberty Reservoir Day, “It is important that we provide our water customers the opportunity to learn about our watershed lands through educational, yet also fun, events like Liberty Reservoir Day.”

By Kevin E. Dayhoff, July 11, 2014

On July 26, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works
will again celebrate Liberty Reservoir Day in the recreation area right above
the reservoir dam on the North Branch of the Patapsco River.

Last year's Liberty Reservoir Day event was well attended and according to Kurt Kocher, the department's spokesman, the department would like to build upon last year's success. 
[…]

"Baltimore and Westminster have a long standing partnership that goes back decades," said Westminster public works director Jeff Glass. "Maintaining a sustainable water supply for all our
customers is a constant focus."

[…]

The free event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the dam on Liberty Dam Road off Wards Chapel Road. Parking is free. For information, call 410-545-6541 or go to http://www.baltimorecity.gov.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the dedication of Liberty Dam, which is
located in eastern Carroll County at the border with Baltimore County.

According to a history of Liberty reservoir written for the Historical Society of Carroll County by historian Mary Ann Ashcraft several years ago in the Carroll County Times, "Baltimore Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr. dedicated Liberty Dam on September 21, 1954 …."

Architectural Competition Held to Rebuild Königsberg City Center - SPIEGEL ONLINE By Susanne Beyer in Kaliningrad, Russia

Architectural Competition Held to Rebuild Königsberg City Center - SPIEGEL ONLINEBy Susanne Beyer in Kaliningrad, Russia

http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/architectural-competition-held-to-rebuild-koenigsberg-city-center-a-980260.html#ref=nl-international

The Allies bombed the Prussian city of Königsberg into the ground in 1944. Residents of what is today the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, a desolate Soviet landscape, are considering rebuilding the city center to reflect some of its historical German architecture.

"The architectural bureau looks pretty much like any other in Europe -- computer drawings hang on the walls, attractive young women concentrate as they stare into oversized monitors. Even the head of the office is wearing outsize glasses. 

What's different here, though, are the odd place names featured in the plans. Rather than being in Russian as one would expect, they include German names such as Altstadt, or Old Town, Löbenicht, Kneipfhof.

These were the names of the city center districts in the city of Königsberg in the former East Prussia, but Königsberg was wiped from the map at the end of World War II, 70 years ago. The city had a grand history as the coronation site for Prussian kings. 


It was famous for its university, where philosopher Immanuel Kant once taught. In 1724, the year of Kant's birth, the cities of Altstadt, Löbenicht and Kneiphof joined together to form the city of Königsberg. With its brick, Renaissance and baroque buildings, with a medieval castle on the Pregel River, with its Brick Gothic cathedral and its proximity to the Baltic Sea, it was one of Germany's most beautiful cities. 

During the final days of August 1944, 360 aircraft with the Royal Air Force flew across the sea heading for Königsberg. They dropped hundreds of tons of highly explosive and incendiary bombs. The city continued to burn for days."

Recreation in Westminster always a hot topic during summer [Column]

Recreation in Westminster always a hot topic during summer [Column]

By Kevin E. Dayhoff, 6:00 a.m. EDT, July 18, 2014 Read more:  http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0720-20140718,0,5480470.story

The City of Westminster and Carroll County's Department of Recreation and Parks have joined the National Recreation and Parks Association in celebrating National Recreation and Parks Month.

According to NRPA.org, the theme for this year's month-long celebration is "OUT is IN."

On April 7, 1922, the Democratic Advocate published an editorial about "Westminster and the recreation problem."

"Our fathers did not have recreational centers. Why should we have them now? Our fathers did not have telephones, automobiles, electric lights, rural free delivery of mails, and many other conveniences which we now enjoy. Shall we dispense with them because they were unknown to the previous generation?

"We cannot do business as our fathers did. Can we take our recreation as they did? In the early days work and play were combined. The men of a community would gather for 'clearing the new ground,' 'log rollings,' 'barn raisings.' 'harvesting parties' 'husking bees,' and the like.

"At the same time the women had their 'quilting parties' and did the cooking for the community feast. In the evening there were the community plays. Those days are gone never to return." ....

History News Network | Found yew! The 'oldest tree in Europe' discovered in a Welsh cemetery

History News Network | Found yew! The 'oldest tree in Europe' discovered in a Welsh cemetery:

http://kevindayhoffart.blogspot.com/2014/07/history-news-network-found-yew-oldest.html


"The yew tree is more than 5,000 years old, from the era 3,000BC.

It started growing nearly 500 years before the Pharaohs built the Great Pyramid of Giza.

And it was a sapling at about the time work first began on building Stonehenge.

The 60ft wide tree’s age has been revealed by experts who carried out ring dating and DNA analysis." http://hnn.us/article/156299

The thriller about complex relationships around a tragedy, its underlying connotation and stupendous performances left the audience numb. However, more details about the film’s story cannot be divulged.

The Relentless Fight

3 Steps in Ministering to Others

We live in a hurting world. We have pain inside us, pain around us, and sin seems to soak everything. Everywhere we turn, others are struggling in their own ways with sin and suffering. For those who are in Christ, we are called as ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20) to incarnate Christ into this world and minister God's grace to hurting people. How do we do this?

George Clooney Blasts Daily Mail (FishbowlNY)


George Clooney has had it with The Daily Mail. In a letter posted by USA Today, the actor blasted the Mail for publishing a story (which originally appeared on its site) about him, his fiancée Amal Alamuddin and her mother. The Mail article said that Alamuddin's mother was against the two getting married based on religious beliefs. 

THR Clooney says he's accustomed to the Mail "making up stories." "They do it several times a week," he says. But Clooney avers that in this instance the stakes are higher: The paper is attempting to exploit religious differences and latent intolerance to attract clicks. 

HuffPost The Mail yanked the story from its website and issued an abject apology to Clooney. "We accept Mr. Clooney's assurance that the story is inaccurate and we apologize to him, Miss Amal Alamuddin and her mother, Baria, for any distress caused," the paper said.
