From the pages of the Havre de Grace Record dated Thursday morning, Oct. 12, 1961: The biggest story, or at least the one with the big headline across the top of the front page, was inexplicably that "Teachers To Convene October 19. " As tradition has it, that weekend in October is for the Maryland State Teachers Convention. In 1961, it was the 94th annual convention of the Maryland State Teachers Association with 20,000 teachers expected to converge on Baltimore. The lengthy story didn't say anything about whether schools would be closed, but with a full convention agenda, it was probably understood that schools would be closed.

Some of my colleagues will tell you I'm not much of a driver, at least in the speed department. Those who have shared the Harford County community newspaper business with me for any number of years will especially smile thinking about those of us who left the office together late at night for the trek to our various homes. Inevitably, they would blow past whatever vehicle I was navigating toward my Havre de Grace home, not slowing down a bit as they zoomed by. My driving tends to be more akin to Morgan Freeman's "Driving Miss Daisy" than to any driver who has had even a fleeting thought of racing.
