For dinner on Wed., on our eating tour of Ocean City Md., we ate at Huggins

For dinner on Wed., on our eating tour of Ocean City Md., we ate at Huggins Crab House www.higginscrabhouse.com at 31st St. 410-289-2581


We choose to eat outside on the rooftop, which worked out well because it gave us a great view of the sunset.


I ordered the Seafood Pasta, which includes over ½ pound of shrimp, scallops, clams, and mussels sauteed, and served with a choice of Alfredo or marinara sauce $25.99.


Caroline ordered Seafood Tacos, with Mahi Mahi. It included two tacos with a fresh vegetable blend that has been infused with a special Asian sauce. $15.49.


Our dinners were wonderful. The service was great. The restaurant was nicely appointed and decorated and quite appealing.


If you go, ask for our server, Sherwood, he was friendly and very good. We liked him.


Or ask for Emily Mitrovich. Emily is a Winter's Mill High School graduate from Westminster, who recently graduated from Salisbury University. She has a teacher's certificate in early childhood education and is currently looking for work in Carroll and Baltimore County public schools. Of course we encouraged her to to come back to Carroll County.


It is a small world, after talking with Emily, she was able to recall that she came to the Westminster mayor's office to interview me when she was in the third grade. I remember it well. What fun

We ate at The Dough Rollers at 41st Street and the Coastal Highway - right next to the OC Convention Center,  after the memorial service. It was nice to sit down for a dinner and the place was very pleasant - almost like a country restaurant. Our servers were really nice, the food was not over-priced, and we both enjoyed our dinner. www.DoughRollerRestaurants.com Sunday, June 18, 2017. #MSFA2017

This scale does not measure character, beauty, or talent.


“This scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure character, beauty, talent, purpose, possibility, strength, or love.”

Smile, this sign is attached to the wall in my sister’s doctor’s office above the scales – where you weigh-in. Too fun. So true. June 16, 2017


And yes, my sister is awesome. And yes, she is a brainiac. Just saying.

For lunch Sat, June 10, 2017, Grammy, Caroline and I ate at local Korean Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

For lunch Sat, June 10, 2017, Grammy, Caroline and I ate at local Korean Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich in Newport News, Virginia.


We got off 64 at Rte 17 north, exit 259a. At the intersection of Rte 17 and Old Oyster Point Road, we found "Straight Outta Philly," at 12:15. Lunch took an hour. We left at 1:15 and resumed driving up Rte 17.


I got a Philly Cheese Steak Pizza. I am not kidding. Grammy actually got a Philly Cheese Steak. Caroline got the Korean Beef Bolgogi, with three Mondoos and no Kimchi. All of our food was quite good.


The restaurant was clean, well-lit and nicely decorated in a vinyl record musical theme. I especially appreciated several home-made signs that the server explained, were made by a local regular customer.


One sign explained that 'Tipping' was not a faraway Chinese city… We sat under a very large neon sign with the restaurant's name.


We always take a great deal of pride in finding locally-owned restaurants for eating when we are on the road. We like supporting local small businesses. More often than not, they have a story to tell, the food is great and the restaurant employees and servers are fun.


Straight Outta Philly was great. Our server was a local girl, who wants to go to school to be an ultrasound technician. While we were there a number of local folks came to eat, including two post office employees.

Today is the anniversary of D-Day in France during WWII

Today is the anniversary of D-Day in France during WWII

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

My morning conversation with Mrs. Sun. Mrs. Sun struggled to awaken this morning. But a fresh cup of coffee finally did the trick. #OBX June 6, 2017. I got up early at 5:45 - 6 a.m.
Today is the anniversary of D-Day in France during WWII.

Yes - as I listen to the waves, I remember that today is the anniversary of D-Day in France during WWII.

And I listen in silence so that I may hear the waves clearly speak for all the silent voices of the past.

I say a morning prayer for the folks many decades ago, who made it possible that I can sit by a tranquil seashore all these years later. I do not take it for granted and I will never forget. I pay homage to those who made it possible. Many of them left a simple young life, full of the future and a life of possibilities ahead of them, from my hometown - and they never came home.

I say a prayer for my Dad who served in the Pacific. I say a prayer for my friends who served in Vietnam while I was stationed stateside. All I could was worry - and pray. I say a prayer for my friends who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I say a prayer for the continued loss of life in London to the forces of sheer madness.

God bless those brave souls who served at D-Day, for their sense of duty and for their sacrifice so many decades ago. I am simply at a loss to imagine the terror, sense of duty, fate and destiny, and the fear.


All we can do now is pray and live a full life - to do honor for their sacrifice. And never-ever forget...

The Rte 17 bridge spans the York River at Yorktown


The Rte 17 bridge spans the York River at Yorktown

Photos by Kevin Dayhoff May 31, 2017

The Rte 17 bridge, which spans the York River at Yorktown and Gloucester Point is known as the “The George P. Coleman Bridge,” according to an article in “Roads to the Future.” The article explains that the bridge “is a 3,750-foot-long double-swing-span bridge located in Yorktown, Virginia, and the bridge crosses the York River. http://www.roadstothefuture.com/Coleman_Bridge.html

The article further explains, “The Coleman Bridge was built as a 2-lane facility in 1952, and it connects the counties of York and Gloucester. The bridge carries Route US-17, a 4-lane arterial highway through eastern Virginia. George P. Coleman, the bridge's namesake, was the Commissioner (agency head) of the Virginia Department of Highways, from 1913 to 1922.

“Due to increasing traffic that had caused the 2-lane bridge to be congested during peak hours, the bridge was widened and reconstructed to 4 lanes, with construction spanning from August 1994 to August 1996. The prime design consultant for the project was Parsons Brinckerhoff, and the prime construction contractor for the project was Tidewater Construction Corporation, of Norfolk, Virginia (now Tidewater Skanska, Inc.).


“The Coleman Bridge main span has 450 feet of horizontal navigational clearance, and 60 feet of vertical navigational clearance when the movable spans are closed. When the movable spans are opened, there is unlimited vertical navigational clearance. The York River has a natural depth of over 60 feet where the bridge's movable spans are. The movable span is needed to allow ship access to several military installations that are upstream of the bridge. The roadways are almost 90 feet above the river at the highest point of the bridge.” Read the rest of the article here: http://www.roadstothefuture.com/Coleman_Bridge.html

On Memorial Day Charles Harrison, Walter Groomes, and Doug Battaglini shared thoughts about Vietnam

 

On Memorial Day Charles Harrison, Walter Groomes, and Doug Battaglini shared thoughts about Vietnam

On Memorial Day about 25 folks gathered at the Carroll Co. Vietnam Memorial, at the corner of Willis and Court Streets, in Westminster, Md.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 Westminster Md. - by Kevin Dayhoff

This year, about 25 folks gathered at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial, at the corner of Willis and Court Streets, in Westminster, Md. right after the Westminster Memorial Day ceremonies at the Westminster Cemetery May 29, 2017 in Westminster.

For several decades, a number of folks have gathered there, every year on Memorial Day, for an impromptu ceremony at the large black granite memorial with the names of the 18 fellow Carroll countian friends, neighbors and loved ones who gave their lives in the service of our country during the Vietnam War.

This year, Carroll County marked its 150th continuous annual observance of Memorial Day with a parade and ceremonies at the Westminster Cemetery. The annual tradition was first organized by Mary Bostwick Shellman on May 30, 1868.

In May 2008, local writer and historian Carrie Ann Knauer reported, “As best anyone can estimate, 182 Carroll countians have lost their lives in the armed services during conflicts since 1917. But tracking exactly how many have died — particularly those in earlier wars in America’s history — is a difficult task, according to a local historian.”

The Carroll County Maryland Vietnam Memorial Park at the corner of Willis and Court Street, next to the historic Courthouse was dedicated on May 28, 1990. Every year at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial, we remember those who gave their lives and try to give them a voice.

This year, in a moving tribute about the war and how Vietnam veterans were treated after the war, Vietnam combat veteran Walter Pete Groomes poignantly shared some thoughts, with our keynote speaker Charles Harrison, and my Westminster High School Class of 1971 classmate Doug Battaglini.

Both Battaglini and Groomes are held in high regard in the community for their leadership roles. They serve as a rock or many Vietnam-era veterans, whether they served in county, or like this writer, stateside.

After the war, Harrison continued to serve in the FBI, a leader in the Carroll County NAACP, volunteer leadership roles with a community focus group that served in an advisory role in the selection of a new Westminster police chief in the early 2000s, and as an Orphan Court Judge, to mention a few of his accomplishments.

In Vietnam, be served as a Captain in the U.S. Army as helicopter pilot. His service earned him the Bronze Star.

The comments of Groomes, Battaglini, and Harrison, tied-in with the moving remarks by Carroll County State’s Attorney Brian DeLeonardo, the day before at the annual Pleasant Valley Memorial Day ceremonies. In a moving presentation, DeLeonardo spoke about his late Dad, who served in Vietnam. His Dad succumbed a number of years ago, at age 49, to complications of his exposure to Agent Orange during the war. 

What many attending the ceremonies found particularly moving was his explanation, that for decades most Vietnam veterans never spoke of the war, or their service to our country. This came as a result of the way most Vietnam veterans were treated with disdain and scorn by much of society, and especially the anti-war demonstrators.

Time Flies by Kevin Dayhoff: “This Memorial Day we remember the service and sacrifice of Joseph Oreto” http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/features/ph-cc-dayhoff-052117-20170520-column.html The Black Horse Regiment first arrived in South Vietnam at Vung Tau on September 7, 1966. It was engaged in heavy combat and took heavy casualties throughout the balance of the war.

Joseph Anthony Oreto was one of 730 members of the ACR lost in Vietnam. He was 21-years old when he died for our country on April 13, 1969.

Oreto was stationed at the Bien Hoa Air Base, about 16-miles above Saigon and killed in Tay Ninh Province up along the Cambodian border, during Operation Toan Thang II. Otherwise known as the defense of Saigon, the objective was a search and clear operation to discourage North Vietnamese Army campsites and rocket positions within striking distance of Saigon.

Carroll and Frederick County Canneries

Carroll and Frederick County Canneries

Sometime ago, several folks were interested in additional information about the canning industry in Carroll County. I have written several articles about the canning industry and it is quite fascinating.

A quick and easy way to get to know some of the history of the canning industry is to get a copy of: “Carroll and Frederick County Canneries” by Harry Conover and John H. Foertschbeck, Sr. and edited by Mimi Ashcraft and Michael Freeman, Sr.

The ISBN number is 0-9829344-0-8

This is an excellent book on the canning industries in Carroll and Frederick Counties.

I believe that it is available at the Historical Society of Carroll County. http://hsccmd.org/ 210 East Main Street, Westminster, MD 21157

My Memorial Day story this Sunday, May 21, 2017, is on Sgt. Joe Oreto, who died in Tay Ninh Province Vit Nam up along the Cambodian border, during Operation Toan Thang II, on April 13, 1969.

I began researching my article for this Memorial Day a long time ago. It is another installment on one the Carroll County military personnel who appear on the wall at the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial next to the courthouse. In the past I have shared the stories of nine of the eighteen fallen heroes from the Vietnam War.

This year’s installment was one Tony Oreto… “On May 29, Carroll County will mark its 150th continuous annual observance of Memorial Day with a parade on Main Street in Westminster and ceremonies at the Westminster Cemetery. The annual tradition was first organized by Mary Bostwick Shellman on May 30, 1868, after the Civil War. Near the cemetery... “Time Flies: Remembering Joseph Oreto's service and sacrifice for Memorial Day” http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/features/ph-cc-dayhoff-052117-20170520-column.html

My law enforcement friends might note that when he was drafted, after two-years of college at St. Mary’s College – then a two-year school, he was a cadet training to be a police officer with the Washington D.C. Police. His father was a U.S. Marshal stationed in Chattanooga, TN.

In past years I have told the stories of Fred Magsamen, Christopher Jesse Miller, Jr., Stanley Groomes, Joseph Blickenstaff, Herbert Eugene Mulkey, Jr., James Norman Byers, Ronald Kenny, and Sherman E. Flanagan, Jr.

Proudly waving American flags, over 40 people walked half a mile from the St. Matthew United Church of Christ to the Pleasant Valley Cemetery Sunday afternoon to honor those killed in service to their country in observance of Memorial Day.

"We honor the people that have given the utmost to our country and kept America free," said Arthur Jenne, a retired Marine Corps officer from Pleasant Valley.

[…]

Kevin Dayhoff, who served in the Marine Corps Reserves, was the keynote speaker.

"It is our duty and responsibility as citizens, to remember these brave sons of Carroll County and never forget the men and women who know all too well the cost of our freedom, for their service to our country is the greatest gift of all," Dayhoff said.
