  • - Estate Planning: The Importance of Wills and Trusts, will be held at the Garrett College Southern Outreach Center in Oakland on September 26 and October 3 from 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. An estate plan provides the legal mechanism for disposing of property upon death in a way that recognizes one’s wishes and the needs of survivors, while minimizing taxes. For many, it can mean planning for the handling of affairs in case of disability, and the personal medical choices to be made as life nears its end.

    An estate plan provides the legal mechanism for disposing of property upon death in a way that recognizes one’s wishes and the needs of survivors, while minimizing taxes. For many, it can means planning for the handling of affairs in case of disability, and the personal medical choices to be made as life nears its end. This two-part course will address the common questions regarding wills and trusts. Part one will provide an overview on some of the more noticeable legal and financial issues associated with growing old. Included in the discussion will be trust basics with a definition of terms and its variations. Some other topics will include preserving and managing assets for a safe and secure retirement, staying in and protecting the home, long-term care insurance, medical assistance and paying for nursing home care. There will also be discussion of the legal documents all seniors should have such as a will, power of attorney and advanced medical directives. This portion of the course is being instructed by Grantsville native Brandon James Hoover. He is an attorney in the Law Office of Donald S. Goldbloom and an assistant professor at Allegany College of Maryland. Part two will focus on wills and probate. The class will focus on such issues as: what is a will and what does it do?, what does it take to draft a will?, how do I choose an executor and what percentage of my assets do they take as a commission?, what is the probate process and is it necessary for my estate? Rita Watson, Register of Wills for Garrett County, will be instructing this portion of the course.

  • | Arts and Entertainment, Deep Creek Lake, McHenry
    - Sightless Lonnie Bedwell, military veteran, extreme sport athlete, and motivational speaker, will return to Garrett County for a second year, as he makes his presentation Overcoming Adversity from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, in the Garrett College Auditorium in McHenry. The event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by Garrett College’s Adventuresports Institute and the Garrett County Counselors’ Association.

    Blinded by a hunting accident in 1997, Bedwell raised three daughters as a single father, teaching them to hunt and fish and, yes against all odds, to drive. His mission is to motivate and inspire others to embrace life with confidence and courage, he accomplishes this by the way he lives his life and sharing his story with others. Dedicated to helping veterans and many others enjoy full lives, he notes blindness does not define him or hinder his efforts on behalf of others.

    Chosen as one of ten National Geographic 2015 Adventurers of the Year, Bedwell has kayaked some of the most challenging whitewater in the world and is best known for having completed the first blind descent of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. He climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, summited several of North America’s highest mountains, is an accomplished rock climber and an avid downhill skier. He meets these challenges in his free time away from his full-time profession – as a roofer.

    Bedwell has appeared on The Today Show, the Steve Harvey Show, and has been featured in countless publications. He is the author of the award-winning book 226 (the length in miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon) and shares his passion for life and adventure with audiences around the country. For more information about his appearance at Garrett College, contact the Adventuresports Institute at 301-387-3333 or avs@garrettcollege.edu.
     
           
  • - On Tuesday, Sept. 27, the public is invited to view a unique, interactive portrait exhibit at Frostburg State University – with words drawn on skin to display simple, powerful messages – and listen to some of the deeper stories behind the images. The subjects of those portraits and stories may even look familiar to many in Western Maryland, as each is a student, faculty or staff member at FSU.
    The free public “Storytelling and Photo Reveal” event will be held in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall of the Lane University Center from 7 to 8 p.m. Afterward, select #DearFrostburg images will be shared with a global audience by Dear World, the award-winning creative team behind the event.
    Dear World asks its portrait subjects one question: “If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?” The resulting images have been published in over 30 countries and featured by many major media outlets. Beyond short messages on their skin, Dear World invites subjects to share the deeper stories behind those messages.
    These #DearFrostburg images and stories will showcase for the world the powerful identities that make Frostburg a special place. Through such storytelling, Dear World seeks to unite people by broadening their understanding of themselves, their colleagues and the world around them.
    The Dear World project started as Dear New Orleans in 2009, when founder Robert Fogarty asked residents of New Orleans to write a “love note” to their city on their bodies and let him take their pictures. Those powerful images inspired Fogarty to widen his project to the whole world, and the team has since photographed more than 50,000 individuals.
    Dear World has documented numerous celebrities, noted intellectuals, elected officials and sporting icons. They have also used a portion of their proceeds to send teams to document people around the globe with incredible stories, such as Syrian refugees in the world’s second largest refugee camp, survivors of the deadly conflict in South Sudan, rescued child slaves in India, survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombing and residents of Breezy Point, N.Y., where a six-alarm fire destroyed 111 homes during Hurricane Sandy.
    This event is sponsored by FSU Student Affairs and the Office of Student Activities and Greek Life SOAR Series.
    For more information, contact Director of Student Activities Robert Cooper at rncooper@frostburg.edu or the Lane University Center Information Desk at 301-687-4411.

    - Leadership Garrett County is building momentum for its planned launch next month. Final preparations for the seven month program are well underway; applications from individuals and sponsoring organizations will continue to be accepted through October 10. The goal is to build a diverse inaugural class of about 20 emerging leaders from the non-profit, for-profit and government sectors of the local economy. Members of the inaugural class will learn, experience, and bond together over the next seven months and hopefully well into the future.

    Leadership Garrett County is a program developed and managed by Garrett College in partnership with the Garrett County Department of Economic Development. Mike Tumbarello, Director of the Garrett College Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, is developing and managing the program and has been working with leadership experts at the University of Georgia (UGA) to bring world-class program content on the art and science of leadership. The inaugural class will meet once a month for a full day, with lectures on leadership from local trainers that have been certified by UGA. In addition to program content on leadership, each month’s class will include visits to key Garrett County institutions in the arts, education, government, social services, etc. Each class will also include meetings with county leaders and discussions with those leaders and others. Graduates of the seven month program will emerge as more informed, connected and effective managers, leaders and citizens, and will, together with future classes, help ensure a bright future for Garrett County.

    According to Tumbarello, “the goal of Leadership Garrett County is to help current county organizations of all types develop emerging leaders to enhance organizational performance and build employee effectiveness and retention. In addition, a primary goal of the program is to help the county identify, enable and retain the next generation of county leadership to ensure a strong, vibrant county for decades to come.” Unlike many other community-based leadership programs, Garrett County’s will include program content on leadership best practices as licensed from UGA. “We were fortunate in that Alex McCoy from Garrett County Economic Development had gone through a program that used the UGA content. After reviewing their program and that of other entities we decided to go with UGA. I feel our new program will compare very favorably to others in the region, the state of Maryland and throughout the U.S.”

    One of the positive attributes of the Garrett County program in addition to its combined classroom and experiential learning format is the low price of tuition. With only a $25 application fee and tuition of $350 for the program, Garrett’s will be the lowest priced program in the state. “When I did my analysis and benchmarking of other programs, I found most cost well over $1,000 and a number over $5,000. We priced ours quite low to accommodate those individuals and institutions in the county where funds were tight. We also wanted to get a good start on enrollment our first year and we have had some financial assistance from the county through economic development and hopefully will be getting a grant we applied for from a national entity that has helped us with the Power of Possibilities the past few years,” stated Tumbarello.

    The value-proposition of the program appears to have been well received, with commitments and applications coming in from a variety of non-profit, governmental, educational and business organizations. Any organization wishing to sponsor an employee, or any individual wishing to apply should go online at click for details to learn more and download the application. Applications and the $25 application fee are due to Tumbarello by October 10. Applicants will learn of their acceptance by October 12 and should be ready and able to attend the first full day’s program on October 18. Monthly meetings will be held the third Tuesday of every month in 2016 and the third Wednesday of every month in 2017. For questions or additional information, contact Tumbarello at 301-387-3167 or mike.tumbarello@garrettcollege.edu.

This section of the festival will be by application only. Spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We a want to avoid any duplication of vendors in the village

    If you are a vendor who wants to educate visitors with your unique talent such as basket making, pottery, sculpting, blacksmith, wood carving, candle making, quilting, taxidermy, etc. then you are just who we need to participate.

    The crafters who are usually located under the big circus tents will be located in the gymnasium this year, while the flea market vendors will still be in their usual location on the grounds.

    The people who wish to watch the events happening on the stage will enjoy sitting under a tent this year. If it is too hot, raining or snowing the tent will make your experience more enjoyable and the musicians will be able to see who is actually listening to them play.

    Timbrook Ford- Keyser, along with three vehicles will be on the grounds Saturday from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. This is the second time that Burlington has partnered with Timbrook Ford- Keyser for a Drive 4 UR Community Event. Please stop by and fill out a form stating that you have looked at their display as $20 per valid test-drive will be given back to support Burlington UM Family Services.


     
           
  • - Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will once again present something for everyone during its 2016-17 season lineup – an adventure tale, a beloved children’s fantasy, a Christmas holiday ghost story, a Civil War drama, an 18th-century British comedy and two student dance concerts with original choreography.
    The season kicks off with “Around the World in 80 Days,” the classic adventure tale by French writer Jules Verne. Grab your passports and climb aboard for a whirlwind trip around the world! It’s 1872 and the eccentric and wealthy Phileas Fogg figures, with mathematical precision, that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. And he wagers half his fortune to prove it. Join Fogg and his loyal, yet unreliable, valet as they hop train, steamship – and elephant – in this fun-filled race against time that takes you around the world and into the heart. Performances will take place in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 20 to 22, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Oct. 15.
    The Fall Dance Concert, titled “Double Play,” will showcase the skill of Jamie McGreevy, choreographer and FSU Dance coordinator, as well as the spectacular talent of the FSU Dance Company, on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 10 and 11, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre. “Double Play” features two performances in one evening. Act I, “Weight on Me,” extends an exciting work presented during the spring 2016 dance concert. To the contemporary neo-classical music of composer Ólafur Arnalds, the piece explores various forms of physical, emotional and social weight the human body encounters and endures. During Act II, “Manipulations,” audiences will witness the investigative play between choreographers, dancers and designers as they each contribute to the movement through physical, audible and visual manipulation.
    Next, celebrate the holiday season in a toast to human kindness with an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, “A Christmas Carol.” After being visited by ghosts from his past, present and future, the notoriously grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge has a true meaning-of-life question on his hands. Should he continue to live as a wretched miser or join the world around him as a decent, caring human being? With an ensemble cast playing such memorable characters as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Christmas Spirits, “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect gift for families and friends to enjoy together. Drama Theatre performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, and Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 8 to 10, with matinees on Sunday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 11, at 2 p.m.
    In the spring, the Department of Theatre and Dance will present the powerful drama “Father Comes Home From the Wars, Parts 1, 2 and 3” by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (“Topdog/Underdog”). In this powerful drama, Hero, a slave, must decide between joining his master on the Confederate battlefield – for what may or may not be a chance to gain his freedom – or staying behind on the plantation with the woman and people he loves. Infused with music and contemporary wit, “Father Comes Home From the Wars” is a high-stakes drama about the mess of war, the cost of freedom and the pain of love. Performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4, and Thursday through Saturday, March 9 to 11, at 7 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, March 12, at 2 p.m.
    The fourth and final play of the season is “She Stoops to Conquer,” a delightfully witty and satirical romp that is as promising of laughter today as it was to audiences more than 200 years ago. When city slickers Marlow and Hastings travel to the countryside in search of love, they find themselves in a tangle of pranks and mistaken identities, including the belief that their prominent host (and Marlow’s possible future father-in-law), Mr. Hardcastle, is a mere innkeeper. To top it all, Marlow has a serious problem. In the company of barmaids and servant girls, he is strikingly self-assured, but in the presence of gentlewomen, including Kate Hardcastle, he is a shy and stammering schoolboy. The Hardcastle household becomes uproariously unhinged as Kate takes matters into her own hands, Hastings pursues his love and an outlandish cast of other characters burst their way into the escalating humor. Performances take place in the Drama Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, April 20 to 22, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, April 15, at 2 p.m.
    The season wraps up with the annual Spring Dance Concert, “Legends,” on Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Theatre. “Legends” pays homage to many of the great music icons we have lost, such as David Bowie and Michael Jackson. Featuring the FSU Dance Company, this variety concert brings together our favorites tunes – the ones that make us sing and dance in the grocery aisle – with one of the world’s liveliest art forms.
    Season subscriptions are available until Oct. 22. For $45, Main Stage subscribers receive four tickets (one ticket per show for Main Stage productions). In addition, Main Stage subscribers can reserve tickets in advance of the general public and may purchase tickets to the Fall and Spring Dance Concerts at student rates.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.

    - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a Make & Take Workshop: Wellness with Essential Oils at the main campus in McHenry. The class will be held on October 3 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

    Essential oils are a great addition to one’s family healthcare regime. Ready-to-go and easy-to-apply rollerball remedies make favorite blends even easier to incorporate into everyday life and are easy for everyone to use – even the kids. During this fun, social and hands-on workshop, participants will learn more about essential oils and make his or her own natural remedy rollerball blends for: protecting against seasonal threats, calming occasional skin irritations, boosting immune function, respiratory and digestive support, soothing sore muscles and joints, promoting calm, relaxation and restful sleep, focus and much more.

    The course is being instructed by Garrett County resident Kearstin Hinebaugh, a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. In her quest to reduce the toxic load for her and her family, she began researching various natural solutions. That research quickly led her to essential oils. Since uncovering their diverse applications and uses, she has become an essential oil enthusiast, learning everything she can about these gifts of the earth. These days she’s, admittedly, a bit obsessed with transforming her routines and making over her medicine, beauty and cleaning cabinets with oil-based products and wants to assist others in doing the same!

  • - Estate Planning: The Importance of Wills and Trusts, will be held at the Garrett College Southern Outreach Center in Oakland on September 26 and October 3 from 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. An estate plan provides the legal mechanism for disposing of property upon death in a way that recognizes one’s wishes and the needs of survivors, while minimizing taxes. For many, it can mean planning for the handling of affairs in case of disability, and the personal medical choices to be made as life nears its end.

    An estate plan provides the legal mechanism for disposing of property upon death in a way that recognizes one’s wishes and the needs of survivors, while minimizing taxes.

Part one will provide an overview on some of the more noticeable legal and financial issues associated with growing old. Included in the discussion will be trust basics with a definition of terms and its variations. Some other topics will include preserving and managing assets for a safe and secure retirement, staying in and protecting the home, long-term care insurance, medical assistance and paying for nursing home care. There will also be discussion of the legal documents all seniors should have such as a will, power of attorney and advanced medical directives. This portion of the course is being instructed by Grantsville native Brandon James Hoover. He is an attorney in the Law Office of Donald S. Goldbloom and an assistant professor at Allegany College of Maryland. Part two will focus on wills and probate.

Rita Watson, Register of Wills for Garrett County, will be instructing this portion of the course.
