According to information from the Taylorsville United Methodist Church website, the first ever ‘Run to the Cross’ will take place this Saturday in Taylorsville, Carroll County, Maryland.

If you are looking to get outside after a long-cold winter of being cooped-up inside, this is a great family event for everyone to enjoy – and celebrate spring and Easter. And oh, was it mentioned that there will also be great food available - pulled pork sandwiches. And all the proceeds go to several good causes…

The 5 K run will go from South Carroll High School to Taylorsville United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. (TUMC). (You can run this or walk this 5 K.)

This 5 K run will travel west on Route 26, cross Route 27 (with State Police help) and travel south on Route 27 to TUMC.

At the end of the race enjoy live music, pulled pork sandwiches (free for runners) and the final awards ceremony.

This run is a joint venture brought to you by TUMC and SCHS’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes. (FCA)

Proceeds will be given to both the FCA and the No More Malaria Campaign. (Every 60 seconds a child dies in Africa of Malaria. This campaign has already cut that number in half, we want to stop deaths from malaria.) Your entry fee will be tax deductible.

There are two ways to register: One is to download the run entry form, fill it out, and mail it back to TUMC along with a check. Please register by April 6th. The registration fee is $10 for students; $15 for SCHS Alum; and $20 for adults.

While many Christian congregations have activities or services scheduled for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday, Easter Saturday is often a quiet day that slips by before the celebrations on Easter Sunday.

But Taylorsville United Methodist Church is hoping to start a new Easter Saturday tradition with the “Run to the Cross” 5K race.

“The whole point is you’re running to the cross the day before Easter and looking to see it’s empty, and the next day you’re going to see that the tombstone is rolled away,” said the Rev. Sarah Dorrance, pastor of Taylorsville UMC. “It’s very specific, rain or shine, on Easter Saturday.”


Dorrance said she got the idea of the church hosting a 5K race while talking to colleagues from other parts of the country. Read more here: http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/features/religion/running-to-the-cross/article_5a6ef6b4-c8c1-5fa0-a54d-5b161e2760f9.html

I don’t really post things like this, but it’s quite sad how hundreds of teens around the age of us are missing or dying or even worse probably not even here on earth anymore and are resting in paradise. I’m very grateful that none of my relatives were on that ship, but it’s also possible that friends of my cousins could have been on that ship and I pray dearly for them. And to the class president who gave up his life jacket to his fellow classmate. God bless. Our world really needs people like you. I’m very sure your school and family would be proud of you. I love you all. Stay strong South Korea.

White Houses

 A Top Ten on Ignant

10. Polite House. Situated in the residential area of Havstein in Trondheim, Norway, this compact single family house is overlooking the fjord and city of Trondheim. The house was designed by JVA.

9. Haus am Weinberg.  The architects of the UNStudio based in Amsterdam, Shanghai and Hong Kong designed in 2011 the single family house ‘Haus am Weinberg’ in Stuttgart, Germany. It is located in a setting that is at one hand rural, yet suburban.

8. Spainville created this impressive residence with the very suitable name ‘The Mediterranean Pearl’ at Morro de Toix, Alicante, Spain. You can enjoy your uplifted view towards the south, with a panoramic view of the Bay of Altea and the Mediterranean sea in the background, either from its wide terraces, through the large windows, from any of its natural gardens, from the infinity pool or from an exceptional vantage point: the Jacuzzi upstairs. The modern style of the house is reflected in a design that is a perfect union of straight and formal lines.

7. Casa Box. The construction of the ‘Casa Box’ by Alan Chu Silveira e Cristiano Arns Kato Architectos followed a simple program. The aim was to renovate a caretaker’s house on an island on the North coast of the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The two floor white suspended box sits 100 meters above sea level, surrounded by enormous rocks. 

6. Monolithic villa in Freundorf. Project A01 Architects created ‘Residence Kramer’, a monolithic villa in a village close to vienna. The sculptural object is located in a generous garden designed by the owner.

5. Sunken House. De Matos Ryan has completed The Garden House, a new 179 sqm house at the far end of the rear garden of a Victorian house in Battersea, South West London. It’s the sunken courtyard, characterized by white pigmented concrete walls and floor that defines The Garden House and lends the house an exotic sensibility.

4. Town House. Elding Oscarson built the ‘Townhouse’ sandwiched between old buildings in Landskrona, Sweden. It is nicely situated by the beach in a growing region. The lot is barely 5 meters wide with a tiny area of 75 square meters, facing a street but also a colorful hidden world inside the city block.

3. Squish. The Squish Studio by Saunders Architcture is located just outside the small town of Tilting on the eastern end of Fogo Island, Canada. Its white angular form, sited on a rocky strip of coastline offers sharp contrast to the traditional vernacular architecture of the nearby picturesque community of Tilting.

2. The lateral House. The ‘Lateral House’ by Gaurav Roy Choudhury located in Bangalore, India, was designed for a young family, which aimed for something pure. The architects indeed created a sculptural space which is bright and airy, segregates public and private spaces, and plays dramatically with scale and proportion.

1. Haus W. The ‘Haus W’ is located in Hamburg and although it might not seem like it, it’s a prefabricated low-energy house designed by Kraus Schönberg and built within only 4 months.

According to the K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen website:

In 1979, when Chef Paul Prudhomme and his late wife, K, opened their “modest”, 62-seat K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen on Chartres Street in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, they had no idea the restaurant was soon to become a sensation, with nightly lines of eager diners waiting sometimes hours to be seated. That was back in the days when K-Paul’s didn’t accept reservations or credit cards! But now, under the hands-on direction of Chef Paul Prudhomme, the restaurant has gone through major changes to keep up with the growing demands of its clients and the times.

Based on the designs of the original 1834 structure, K-Paul’s was extensively refurbished and expanded in 1996 and now offers seating for more than 200 dining guests. Dining areas include seasonal balcony dining, spacious dining rooms on both the first and second floors and an intimate climate-controlled courtyard for dining al fresco. K’s Parlor, an enclosed private room on the second floor, is host to parties, corporate events, and other special occasions. Both floors feature an open kitchen where diners can see exactly how each delectable dish is prepared. K-Paul’s gladly accepts reservations and offers catering on-site or anywhere around the world.

Executive Chef Paul Miller goes to great lengths to ensure the highest quality food. He states, “We have three kitchens and a bakery at K-Paul’s and the philosophy and commitment to excellence will never change. There are still no freezers in the restaurant and only the freshest ingredients of the highest quality are used. This is why we change our menu daily.”


Chef Paul Prudhomme and the entire staff of K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen cordially welcome you to our restaurant to experience all that we offer.

So the tree can only grow where it has shelter. It has looked this way always.”

Coverage of the fashion designer’s passing was just the latest example of a sad journalistic tradition

By Stassa Edwards March 20, 2014

When news broke that respected fashion designer L’Wren Scott had passed away on Monday, The New York Times noted her suicide with the regrettable headline “Mick Jagger’s Girlfriend Found Dead.”

The Times wasn’t alone in its faux pas; the Associated Press dutifully tweeted, “BREAKING: Law enforcement: Mick Jagger’ [sic] girlfriend, L’Wren Scott, found dead in NYC of possible suicide.” Though the AP managed to slip Scott’s name in the headline of the report, both news organizations seemed to agree: Scott’s death was newsworthy only because of her romantic association with a legendary rock and roller. Editors at neither The New York Times nor the Associated Press seemed to grasp that Scott’s untimely death was newsworthy because of her professional accomplishments.

One would think that after the stroganoff incident, the Gray Lady in particular would have found a better way to note the passing of accomplished women, but it clearly hasn’t. The poor handling of Scott’s death speaks more broadly to the difficulty of recounting a woman’s life — namely the determination of a hierarchy of facts, a project that should seem gender neutral but rarely is. It often seems natural enough to define women by their relationships — wife, mother, girlfriend, etc. — and let famous men be memorialized for their accomplishments, their family lives taking a backseat. This was certainly the case with the aforementioned stroganoff incident, in which the Times’ obituary writers downgraded Yvette Brill from rocket scientist to pretty good cook.

In the case of [L’Wren] Scott, the Times seems to have repeated the same mistake, emphasizing the importance of her relationships over her talents. Perhaps editors were so enamored with Jagger’s fame or the potential click-bait of his name that Scott’s erasure seemed easy enough. The irony is that Scott, an “entirely self-made” businesswoman, shied away from questions about her famous partner, preferring instead to talk about her work.

On March 16, 1972, an article in The Carroll Record explained one of the basic building blocks of the Cold War era, the fallout shelter.

"Today’s Paper Has Community Fallout Shelter Plan — The new community fallout shelter plan for Carroll County is included in this newspaper. …"

The article reported, “According to the County commissioners, ‘The information developed in the plan could save the lives of thousands of persons in the event of attack. …’ “

The recent tensions between Russia and the West over the civil unrest in the Ukraine and Crimean Peninsula have renewed an interest in Cold War nostalgia.

Who can remember the school air raid drill in which you were to hide underneath your desk – or in the hallway? Remember, drop to the floor, duck and cover your head, to protect yourself from flying debris and getting burned by the nuclear blast. Some schools distributed dog tags so that the bodies of the dead students could easily be identified.

According to information provided by the gallery and the artists, Ms. Helmken earned a B.A. in Design at East Carolina University and has continued learning new techniques by experimenting and by studying with fiber artists such as Madelyn Van der Hoogt, Alice Schlein, Barbara Cooper, Donna Sullivan, Jozef Bajus, and Holly Brackmann.  She also studied at the Penland School of Crafts and the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

 

Experimenting with new techniques and non-traditional materials is her favorite challenge. Mixing wire and yarn, she weaves narrow bands and shapes them into 3-dimensional forms.

 

Some are patterned after natural forms while others mimic fashion accessories.  She also weaves clothing and accessories.  

 

Ms. Helmken uses a variety of yarns and fibers to develop cloth with textures and patterns not found in commercially woven fabric.

 

Ecclesiastical pieces such as stoles, banners, and altar cloths are another facet of her work. 

 

Ms. Helmken has been a juried member of Gallery 209 in Savannah, GA, Fiberworks Gallery and The Potomac Fibersrts Gallery in the Torpedo Factory of Alexandria, VA, Studio Fiberarts at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA. 

 

Her work has been accepted in juried shows throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, most recently at AASU Gallery, The Blackrock Arts Center, Sweetwater Center for the Arts, The Art League of Alexandria, VA, and The Workhouse Center for the Arts. 

 

She taught weaving and dyework at Armstrong Atlantic State University; she conducts workshops and classes for fiber guilds and offers private lessons as well.

Friday evening March 7, 2014: “Off Track Art” is an artists’ collective & gallery located in the historic Liberty Building at 11 Liberty St. – next to the railroad tracks, off of the Sentinel parking lot at the corner of W. Main St & MD 27-Liberty St - in historic downtown Westminster, Md.

 

The inspiration for forming the co-op was spearheaded by local artists Susan Williamson & Pam Zappardino. Off Track had its grand opening on Feb. 13th, 2009.

 

For the past 4-yrs, the partners in the Off Track Art co-op have changed; however the artist-partners in the co-op have been dedicated to advancing the arts in Westminster as well as the careers, ideas, and artistic visions of its members.

Streets and history of Westminster intersect at odd angles [Eagle Archives]

Streets and history of Westminster intersect at odd angles [Eagle Archives]

By Kevin Dayhoff March 4, 2014 http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0302-20140304,0,1024009.story

Many residents today may not recall the crazy-quilt “dog leg” intersection of John, Bond and Main streets, or the equally mismatched collision of Main and Liberty streets, Railroad Avenue, and the train tracks in Westminster.

Years ago, these intersections did not look anything like they do now. Today, they form a perfect “cross.”

But years ago, a motorist traveling south on John Street or Railroad Avenue had to make a 90-degree right turn onto Main Street, then hang a quick left to get on either Liberty or Bond Street and get through the intersection.

It may have worked well enough in the horse and buggy days. But by the 1970s, it was nuts.

Finally, sanity ruled and the two intersections and the bridge over the railroad tracks on East Green Street were rebuilt in the mid-1970s.

Many years ago, the area that we now know as John and Carroll streets in Westminster was known as the “space between.”
