Richie Porte secures place on final Tour de France podium in Paris 

FTA: "Porte has ridden the Tour de France 10 times in his career, placing as high as fifth in 2016, but has twice crashed out and been scarred by the emotions of defeat. 

"He missed the birth of his second child to compete at this year's race and never gave up hope of pulling off a result in his final Tour de France as a team leader, despite setbacks and minor time losses during the three weeks. Porte is expected to join Ineos Grenadiers as a key support rider for Egan Bernal in 2021..."

Robert McCurdy 2018 newspaper article - Pleasant Valley Fire Company firefighter bagpiper

Robert McCurdy 2018 Pleasant Valley Fire Company firefighter bagpiper - - Re-reading a really nice Carroll County article from May 21, 2018, about a local hero, Robert McCurdy, written by Jon Kelvey. Give it a minute or two to read. It is well-worth your time.

Pleasant Valley firefighter lends his pipes to 12 years of 'Amazing Grace' in Dulaney Valley by JON KELVEY CARROLL COUNTY TIMES | MAY 21, 2018

McCurdy is a retired Baltimore City firefighter and a volunteer firefighter with the Pleasant Valley fire company and first performed at Dulaney Valley in 2007 in honor of Sgt. Brian R. Conner, a member of the Maryland Army National Guard, who was killed in action in Iraq. Conner was also a Baltimore City firefighter.

“The deputy chief in charge of the honor guard at the time had asked the folks down there if I would be able to join in since they were honoring a firefighter as well as his being in the military,” McCurdy said. “They graciously said yes.”

McCurdy has been playing there ever since.

RunMoore running shoe store, Westminster Maryland

I finally got around to replacing a pair of worn-out running shoes at RunMoore, the shoe store for runners at 28 W. Main Street, in Westminster. 443-201-8203

Caroline and I have purchased a lot of shoes from this store. For the casual or serious runner or walker, this store is epic.  The customer service is like the old days in Westminster when the stores were all family owned and the sales representatives were actually personally interested in you having a positive customer experience.  

Earlier in the year, at the beginning of the pandemic, and stores were being shuttered, Caroline called the store about replacing a pair of shoes. They keep great records of your past purchases - and Caroline pretty-much knew what she needed. Later in the day, Caroline was able to pull-up in front of the store, give them a call, at which time, they brought the shoes to the car and put them in the trunk. No contact. Engage, adapt, overcome.

Downtown Westminster is awesome.
