  • - The Maryland Park Service will offer a free Scales & Tales program at Casselman River Bridge State Park on Dec. 3. This environmental education program provides a rare opportunity for people to see live wildlife native to Maryland, up close and personal. The program will take place at 2 p.m. at the gazebo within the park. Scales & Tales is a program that uses live non-releasable birds of prey to promote stewardship of our wildlife and other natural resources. Through the stories, or "tales" of how these animals come into the care of the program, Ranger Katy Barger will discuss their unique features and very important environmental issues.

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a course, Make & Take Workshop: 12 Sprays of Christmas with Essential Oils, at the McHenry campus. The course will be held on December 12 from 6 to 8 p.m.

    There is no doubt that certain smells remind you of the holidays – gingerbread, spiced apple cider, peppermint, and pine trees. Many products are available on the market that help with home fragrance, but may be harmful to one’s health because of the chemicals used to create the artificial scents. This holiday season save money, reduce the chemical load in your home and have fun making your own air fresheners out of essential oils with this 12 Sprays of Christmas Make & Take Workshop. These natural air fresheners will be sure to provide the perfect holiday scent while keeping your home smelling lovely for the holidays – and chemical-free.

    The course is being instructed by local 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.

    For more information on this course persons may contact Terry Beachy at 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.

  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • - The Frostburg State University Chorale and Chamber Singers will present their fall choral concert, “The Season of Joy Through Musical Meanderings,” on Friday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The concert will feature many works examining music as inspiration for life’s journey through love, happiness, sadness, the seasons, everyday life and death.
    Under the direction of Dr. James Reddan, and accompanied by Joseph Yungen, the University Chorale will begin the concert with a South African call and response, “Hlohonolofatsa,” arranged by Daniel Jackson, featuring a procession with use of the djembe and conga drums, followed by the traditional “Carol of the Bells,” a popular Christmas carol by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych. These opening pieces will be followed by “Glow” by Eric Whitacre; “Ride on King Jesus,” arranged by Moses Hogan; “J’entends le moulin” by Donald Patriquin; and “Lux Beatissima” by Joshua Rist. The well-known text of the opera “John Brown” is then featured in Kirke Mechem’s “Blow Ye the Trumpet.” The chorale will finish its performance with Michael Englehardt’s “Gaudete,” featuring the choir accompanied by FSU percussion students.
    The FSU Chamber Singers will perform the second half of the concert, including a varied repertoire of choral works that begins with “Hard Times Come Again No More” by Stephen Foster, arranged by Keller. This will be followed by “Dieu, qui la fait” by Claude Debussy and the Czech folk song “Jede sedlák” by Jaroslav Krček. Both of these pieces examine love in everyday life from two very different perspectives. These will be followed by “My Spirit Sang All Day” by Gerald Finzi and “Verbum caro factum est” by Hans Leo Hassler. Following this will be “Sleep,” also by Whitacre. The text examines sleep in literal and metaphorical meanings and the relationship among many emotions. The ensemble will finish the evening with a performance of “O Magnum Mysterium” (“O Great Mystery”) by Moreten Lauridsen, a composition meant to depict the profound joy displayed and felt on a deep personal level during the season.
    Tickets can be purchased at the door (cash only) and are $10 for general admission, $5 for seniors, $3 for students and free for children 12 and younger.

    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?
    Adapted from Dickens’ novel by Tony Reich, an ensemble cast will play 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.
