Opening words by Don West

Song by Dean Camlin

Song by Eddie Brooks – I’ll fly away.

"I'll Fly Away"

Some bright morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
To that home on Gods celestial shore
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away in the morning
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away
I'll fly away

The Westminster Fire Co extends its sympathy to the family of Jeannie Vogel of JeannieBird Baking Co who died in today’s traffic accident.

Prayer by Westminster Fire Dept. Chaplain

Ms. Vogel was a lovely person who steadfastly supported the Westminster community and the Westminster Fire Department. We lift Jeannie and her family, co-workers, and friends into our hearts and pray for comfort and healing at this terrible time. She will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the men and woman of the Westminster Volunteer Fire Department

The Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Company No.1 extends its sympathy to the family and loved ones of Jeannie Vogel of the JeannieBird Baking Co., our neighbor on Main St in Westminster, who died in yesterday’s traffic accident.

O god of grace and glory, we remember before you today our sister Jeannie Vogel

We thank you for giving her to us to know and to love as a companion in our pilgrimage on earth and our service to our community. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this very difficult time. 

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear.

May memories of happy times sustain us, the support of family and friends comfort us, and may God's love embrace you and your family and bring you peace.

In your boundless compassion, console us who still mourn. 

Give us faith to see that death has been swallowed up in the victory of our Lord, so that we may live in confidence and hope until, by your call, we are gathered to our heavenly home in the company of all your saints.

+++++++++

We also say a prayer for the firefighters, EMS personnel, state highway workers, and police officers who left their homes in the middle of night to respond to this terrible accident. They fought the fire, freezing temperatures, ice, and multiple dangers of the accident this morning at Rte. 27 and Kate Wagner Road.

God of earth and air, water and fire, height and depth, we pray for those who work in danger,

Who rush in to bring hope and help and comfort when others flee to safety,

Whose mission is to seek and save, serve and protect, and whose presence embodies the protection of the Good Shepherd.

Give them caution and concern for one another, so that in safety they may do what must be done, under your watchful eye.

Support them in their courage and dedication that they may continue to save lives, ease pain, and mend the torn fabric of lives and social order. Amen.

Police believe owner of JeannieBird bakery killed in Route 27 crash


Police believe the owner of a popular Westminster bakery and café was killed in fiery traffic crash involving a tractor trailer on Route 27 early Friday morning.

Because of the severity of the injuries, Maryland State Police investigators were unable to positively confirm the identification of the deceased victim prior to autopsy results from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. However, based on evidence retrieved from the scene of the crash, in addition to information received from family members, investigators believe the victim was Jeannie Vogel.

Vogel, 53, co-owned JeannieBird Baking Company on Main Street in Westminster. The crash occurred shortly after 4 a.m. when the tractor-trailer struck the vehicle Vogel was driving, causing both vehicles to catch fire…

Carroll Co. Md. Sheriff Jim DeWees - A Letter from me to our president


Carroll Co. Md. Sheriff Jim DeWees - A Letter from me to our president

Facebook 9:01 a.m. February 13, 2016 https://www.facebook.com/sheriffjimdewees/


Dear President Obama:

In case you haven’t heard, eight American police officers over the past eight days have been killed in the line of duty. Two of these police officers were Harford County Sheriff’s Deputies that were gunned down at a Panera Restaurant just 50 miles from where you live. I’ve watched and listened intently for words of encouragement and sorrow to come from you, but haven’t heard or seen anything.

Conversely, just two weeks ago my governor, Larry Hogan, spent the better part of a week placing a call each day to one of my deputies that was involved in a severe traffic collision in Carroll County. He wasn’t satisfied with speaking to me in order to send his prayers and regards; he called every day after the collision until he spoke with my deputy’s wife. Governor Hogan also drove to Harford County the day after two deputies were slain to meet Sheriff Gahler and the men & women of his office to grieve with them. The governor is in the middle of the 2016 Legislative Session and is pretty busy, yet found time to call, visit, and pay his respects to me & my deputy, and the men & women of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

I understand that you are a busy man and are being pulled in multiple directions every day of the week. But, when my president doesn’t take the time to openly recognize the sacrifices that brave men & women of law enforcement make each day to keep domestic peace, I’m disappointed! I suspect that if these same deputies walked in to a restaurant, and without provocation shot and killed an innocent man, you and your staff would quickly whisk their family away to Washington for a future speech to make an example of police officers nationwide.

For me Mr. President, it has nothing to do with Republican or Democrat; black or white, male or female; but, it has everything to do with leading or following. I’m not shocked that you haven’t openly reached out or acknowledged publically the recent rash of deaths in law enforcement, but I’m tremendously disappointed!

Mr. President, your silence about these events SPEAKS VOLUMES!!!!

PS: I'll be standing outside in the cold next week with my deputies for the funerals of the Harford Co deputies; I'll save you a spot next to me!

James T. DeWees

Two Harford County Md. Sheriff’s Office Deputies Murdered in Line of Duty


Two Harford County Sheriff's Office Deputies Murdered in Line of Duty
Harford County Sheriff's Office 
 
NEWS RELEASE 
 
Two Deputies Murdered in Line of Duty 
 
[February 11, 2016, Abindgon, MD]  
 
On Wednesday, February 10, 2016, Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon of the Harford County Sheriff's Office were killed in the line of duty while faithfully serving the citizens of Harford County. 
 
At approximately 11:40 a.m., the Harford County Department of Emergency Services received a call from a citizen concerning a suspicious circumstance, indicating a wanted person was in the Panera Bread restaurant located in the 3400 block of Merchant Drive in Abingdon, Maryland. 
 
At approximately 11:46 a.m., Deputies were dispatched to the location in an attempt to locate the wanted subject who had been described by the caller.
The investigation has revealed that Senior Deputy Dailey arrived at the Panera Bread a short time after the initial dispatch, entered and approached a subject meeting the description who was seated alone at a table.  

While speaking to Senior Deputy Dailey, the suspect, without warning, produced a handgun and shot Senior Deputy Dailey in the head.  The suspect then exited the Panera Bread and ran in the direction of Parkview at Box Hill, a senior living apartment center.
Within moments, a second Deputy arrived at the restaurant and located Senior Deputy Dailey with a gunshot wound. 
 
Shortly after 12:00 p.m., Senior Deputy Logsdon, who had arrived on scene, exited his vehicle and, along with additional Harford County deputies, located the suspect seated in the front seat of a vehicle in the parking lot at Parkview at Box Hill.  Upon contact by Senior Deputy Logsdon, the suspect fired multiple rounds at the Deputy, mortally wounding him. 
 
Deputies within close proximity, including Senior Deputy Logsdon, returned fire, striking and killing the suspect.  He has subsequently been identified as David Brian Evans (W/M, 12/25/47) who has no fixed address.  The loaded handgun used to murder Senior Deputy Logsdon and Senior Deputy Dailey was recovered from the suspect. 
 
Lifesaving efforts were immediately administered to both Senior Deputy Dailey and Senior Deputy Logsdon by Sheriff's Deputies on scene.  Abingdon and Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Departments responded and continued their life saving efforts.  Senior Deputy Dailey was transported from the scene by Maryland State Police helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.  Senior Deputy Logsdon was transported to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center.  Both succumbed to their injuries. 
 
Investigators from the Harford County Sheriff's Office are continuing to work tirelessly to reconstruct the events surrounding these senseless murders. 
Senior Deputy Dailey had served with the Harford County Sheriff's Office for 30 years and was assigned to the Court Services Division.  He was also a lifelong member of the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company.  He is survived by his two children, girlfriend and mother. 
 
Senior Deputy Logsdon had served with the Harford County Sheriff's Office for 16 years and was assigned to the Community Services Division.  He is survived by his wife, three children, and parents. 
 
Both Senior Deputy Dailey and Senior Deputy Logsdon served in the military.  Senior Deputy Dailey served in the Marines; Senior Deputy Logsdon served in the United States Army. 
 
Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler and the members of the Harford County Sheriff's Office would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the Maryland State Police, Maryland Transportation Authority Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Bel Air Police Department, Aberdeen Police Department, Havre de Grace Police Department, Baltimore County Police Department, the State Highway Administration, Harford County Department of Emergency Services, and all the local fire companies who assisted yesterday.  Their assistance greatly helped our agency get through yesterday's tragic events.

Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were shot and killed


Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were shot and killed

Wed., Feb. 10, 2016 Harford Co. MD Sheriff Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were shot and killed by an emotionally disturbed person who was wanted for assaulting a police officer in Florida. 
 
According to the "Officer Down Memorial Page." The deputies had been dispatched to the restaurant after the man's ex-wife had called to report the subject was there. Deputy Dailey, who knew the subject, sat down at the man's table and asked how he was doing. Without warning the subject produced a handgun and shot the deputy in the head, killing him. 
 
The man fled into the parking lot where he was confronted by Deputy Logsdon. The subject shot and killed Deputy Logsdon before he was killed by two other deputies.
Deputy Dailey was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Harford County Sheriff's Office for 30 years. He is survived by his two children and mother." 

Hat tip to my brother, Jason Tyler, for getting this information out to us. 
 
Please join me in prayers for members of our LE families all over the US. Today, I ask for prayers for the Harford Co Sheriff's Department. Two members of their department were shot down in cold blood yesterday, Wed. Feb. 10, 2016. Both leave behind families, colleagues, and friends that are heartbroken and shocked. Please keep them and their families in your prayers. We pray for our greater community that is shocked and fed up with the senseless violence committed against the very folks who protect us and keep us safe. We are so heartbroken. Amen 
 
The violence committed against our officers must come to an end. Our men and women in blue must know that the vast majority stand with them and appreciate their service to our community. And we stand against the community leaders that trade in the empty rhetoric that attempts to divide us or does not understand that without public safety you have no community. 
 
Semper Fi

Today, I ask for prayers for the Harford Co Sheriff's Department.

Please join me in prayers for members of our LE families all over the US.

Mark Liberman: Patchwriting - June 13, 2014 Language Log

Mark Liberman: Patchwriting - June 13, 2014 Language Log

Retrieved February 4, 2016 as a result of a discussion on Facebook among a number of writers about an article on Poynter: “Is it original? An editor’s guide to identifying plagiarism:” http://www.poynter.org/2014/is-it-original-an-editors-guide-to-identifying-plagiarism/269273/

I could have sworn that I heard the term, “patchwriting” many-many years ago, but Mark Liberman has traced it back to 1993…

According to Mr. Liberman, in a June 13, 2014 article, “Patchwriting,” published on the website, “Language Log,” “patchwriting has been around for a while.” Find the article here: http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=12963

Mr. Liberman reports the origin of the term, “seems to be in Rebecca Moore Howard, ‘A plagiarism pentimento", [sic] Journal of teaching writing 1993…”

Now I do not know what I am talking about but that has never stopped me in the past. Mr. Liberman’s piece is a fascinating read for those of us who celebrate being OCD and getting lost in the weeds over such matters.

I especially appreciated the comments in which one commenter waxed poetically about Immanuel Kant’s use of language from the King James Version of the New Testament and whether or not Kant should have added quotation marks. No mention of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, but Mark Twain, Monty Python, and Shakespeare did post cameo appearances.



“Christopher Ketcham ("The Troubling Case of Chris Hedges: Pulitzer winner. Lefty hero. Plagiarist.", TNR 6/12/2014) documents several cases of sentences and even paragraphs copied verbatim, as well as other cases of "patchwriting": [sic] June 13, 2014 @ 10:37 am · Filed by Mark Liberman under Language and the media

Erase the Truth

“The problem with introspection is that it has no end.” ― Philip K. Dick http://kevindayhoffart.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-problem-with-introspection-is-that.html

“This, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance.” ― Philip K. Dick
I was looking for www.erasethetruth.com.

Actually I had hoped it was another movie adapted from the work of Philip K. Dick....

Then again, it could have been the website for a certain candidate for mayor... Although I cannot mention her name because of my contract with the Baltimore Sun. Oh, well - gee, never mind. Nothing to see here folks, just move along. Onward through the day.

Okay, moving right along…. Let’s see… In the words of Mr. Dick, “My schedule for today lists a six-hour self-accusatory depression.” ― Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2013/04/erase-truth.html
