With the school year about to start and the temperatures cooling off a little, sometimes my thoughts are drifting to high school football. There are so many things to do at Deep Creek Lake and in Garrett County. High school football at either Northern Garrett or Southern Garrett High Schools are another great event.
With only two high schools in Garrett County the rivalry runs deep. Below is the schedule for the 2012 Southern Huskies varsity football season. The games are played behind the high school located east of Oakland MD.
Owners of Maryland’s only ski resort have asked a federal bankruptcy court for more time to find a buyer.
D.C. Development LLC, which owns Wisp Resort in Deep Creek Lake, near McHenry in western Maryland, asked the court in a filing submitted last week to delay its current August 10 deadline to provide a reorganization plan until October 9. They say that they’re in negotiations with two unidentified potential buyers while they concurrently craft a reorganization plan for the resort.
D.C. Development filed for bankruptcy protection last October after unsuccessfully attempting to renegotiate a $28.5 million loan with BB&T bank, of Winston-Salem, N.C., that was taken out to develop residential sites and an 18-hole golf course near the ski area before the real estate market bottomed out in 2008. Wisp celebrated its 56th birthday as a ski area last winter.

I have been really wanting to get this video for a long time. Everything went great except for one camera setting. This picture was taken last week in Deep Creek Lake at about 25 feet. Check back soon as I will have video and I hope evidence of the “Really Big Fish”. This was a training dive with members of Bittinger, Deep Creek, Friendsville and Oakland Volunteer Fire Departments.
