The Carroll County sheriff’s office has been a whirlwind of activity ever since retired Maryland State Police Captain Jim DeWees took office last December 2 as Carroll County’s 58th sheriff.

DeWees takes office at a time of great changes in law enforcement. Not to be overlooked is the heightened scrutiny – and danger – in which law enforcement officers find themselves these days.

Among the many new approaches initiated recently; the sheriff’s office has announced a long over-due initiative to equalize the due process, retirement, and compensation disparities between the sheriff’s deputies who work the county roads in a law enforcement and investigations capacity with that of the men and women who work as correctional officers in the county detention facility.

Sunday school at Grace Lutheran Church

Sunday school at Grace Lutheran Church. Our discussion is about our spiritual and vocational callings. The springboard for the discussion was 1 Samuel 3: 1-10. "Here I am , you called me." 14Jan2018

Sunday morning 9 am church service at Grace Lutheran

Sunday morning 9 am church service at Grace Lutheran Church. It's 14 degrees outside, but warm and affirming here at Grace. www.gracelc.org Today the council officers are being installed. Pastor Martha's message was about the lessons of 1 Samuel 3:1-10 and John 1:43-51... I liked the part when Nathaniel said, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"

What? Doesn't everyone have a reclining chair sitting on the back of the truck? We disposed of our old recliner today and our household is sad. Please join in a moment of silence over the loss of our chair. We are taking it hard. 12Jan2018

Dec. 29, 2006: This was one weird year Doug Tallman, Gazette

Dec. 29, 2006: This was one weird year Doug Tallman, Gazette

9Jan2018: My note - - I was doing file maintenance on the top stories from years past and came across this one from Doug Tallman. It is one my favorite year-end stories.

As a matter of fact, it is one of my favorite stories, among many favorite stories written by Doug Tallman. Doug runs neck and neck with Katherine Heerbrandt, Bryan Sears, and Carrie Knauer, on my list of favorite story writers over the years. Just saying.

So, anyway, Doug wrote this in the Gazette on Dec. 29, 2006 – and I was surprised to see that it is still up on the web. (I wish my old stories were still on the web – but that is another subject for another day. For me, 2000 stories later, and sadly only a fraction are still on the web…. Sad.

So, Doug wrote: “This was one weird year — and don’t forget the rats! - From ogling to challenging fitness for the office, 2006 was full of unexpected twists and turns,” Friday, Dec. 29, 2006 by Douglas Tallman, Staff Writer

ANNAPOLIS — There were times in 2006 when it was hard to keep a straight face.

It was the year a political icon asked a comely aide to walk away so he could get another view of her derriere. On Election Day, voters asked the icon to do the same.

It was the year a quick-thinking politician administered the Heimlich maneuver to a choking man, who turned out to be his political rival.

It was the year an attorney general candidate was barred from running. Days before Election Day, another AG candidate faced a similar challenge.

And it was the year that the renovation of Annapolis office space led to rats roaming the hallways.

‘‘It looks like a Mel Brooks movie,” said D. Bruce Poole, a former House majority leader who observed the state capital’s shenanigans from a safe distance, his law office in Hagerstown.
