By Kevin Dayhoff

Friday, January 18, 2019

There will be Poor People's Campaign organizational meeting on Sat., Jan. 19th, 2019 at the Westminster Library, 50 East Main Street


According to Carroll County NAACP executive board member Rev. Erin Snell, there will be Poor People's Campaign organizational meeting on Saturday January 19th, 2019 at the Westminster Library Large Meeting Room, 50 East Main Street, Westminster, MD 21157 from 10 AM - noon.

All interested folks are welcome to attend to learn more about current Poor People's Campaign efforts.

According to information on the flyer provided by Rev. Snell, “Join us to learn more about the new Poor People’s campaign and strategies to use in developing a plan to bring Carroll County into this movement to challenge poverty, systemic racism, the war economy, ecological devastation and our distorted national moral narrative….

“Carroll County needs a Poor People’s Campaign. 27 % of Carroll County households are struggling to pay for basic living expenses including housing, food, healthcare, and transportation.

“Across our nation there is a movement building to revive Dr. King’s vision of creating a “new and unsettling force" in this country. Together we are challenging the policies and distorted moral narratives that perpetuate oppression…”

This is the story of the lonely vacuum cleaner. 
About how an old and aging vacuum cleaner was left in the “Buzzard’s Crust Big Shed Studio” all alone on Christmas Day. 
What could possibly be meaner?
It missed its friends the electric water heater and the dehumidifier. 
What more can I say.
It had no idea why it was left all alone on Christmas Day – in the dark, and the cold, without its friends.
It missed being in a warm house – with the sounds of children.
Not a creature was stirring – not even a mouse.

Time Flies Dayhoff: America's oldest banker when he died, John Cunningham enjoyed walking, cycling and poker


Time Flies Dayhoff: America's oldest banker when he died, John Cunningham enjoyed walking, cycling and poker

January 11, 2019 by Kevin Dayhoff

As we put away another year and look forward to a new one, it is only fitting that we remember one of the many great Carroll Countians that have gone before us: John H. Cunningham.

On Dec. 31, 1965, John Cunningham passed away within a few hours of his 99th birthday. Local historian Jay Graybeal wrote of “his rich life, including his interests in bicycling, walking and poker,” in a March 16, 1997 column in the Carroll County Times.

[…]

Cunningham was born on New Year’s Day in 1867. According to his obit, “On January 1, 1885, while a senior at Western Maryland College, Mr. Cunningham began his banking career as a clerk with the Farmers and Mechanics National Bank, [at 105 E. Main St. in Westminster] following the footsteps of his father William, who was a clerk there.”

He worked in the same office, with the same employer for his entire life — from 1885 until when he passed away in 1965. “Many days he walked the mile to work from his home at 95 West Green Street.”

Slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona


Slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona

Wow – so sad: “… but authorities say Limbaugh walked up to a traffic accident that Corona was called to and started shooting at her patrol car, a fire truck and a minivan…”

I guess this reinforces our training about safety perimeters. According to ODMP: “As Officer Corona was conducting an investigation at the collision scene a person not involved with the crashed rode up to the scene on a bicycle. As Officer Corona spoke to one of the persons involved in the crash the man then walked up to her and opened fire without warning, striking her. He shot her several more times after she fell to the ground before shooting randomly at others bystanders and vehicles…”


The story behind this image of slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona

DAVIS, Calif. (KTVU) - In the image, she's wearing a royal blue gown, carrying a black-striped American flag with a thin blue line streaked across it.

[…]

It's this compelling photograph of slain Davis police officer Natalie Corona that circulated throughout the country on Friday, hours after the 22-year-old was shot to death by a suspect identified on Saturday as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, 48.

[…]

"I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country," Corona wrote on her Facebook page on Oct. 21, 2016. She used the hashtags: #LawEnforcement #Blueline #Thankyou #Lausphotography.

[…]

Corona's father, Jose Merced Corona, spent 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's sergeant before retiring and getting elected to the county's Board of Supervisors last November. Her mother is a first-grade teacher, and two cousins are also in law enforcement, Gomez said.

[…]

She grew up in a tight-knit family in the Northern California town of Arbuckle. The family had emigrated from Mexico a few generations ago and had become established members of their community.

Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster, Md.



Caroline, Grammy, and I are on the altar guild at Grace Lutheran Church. Last Friday, 11Jan2019, The Altar Guild chair Cynthia Beckhardt, Caroline, and I changed-out the paraments at church. We changed the liturgical hangings for the altar, lectern, and pulpit. I really liked the views of the sanctuary after we turned-out the lights and took a few pictures. http://gracelc.org/
