Jon Browne went to bed early Sunday, weary from attending a St. Patrick's Day parade and seeking a good night's rest before another day of school at Oakland Mills. When the Scorpions coach awoke to seven missed calls and several text messages, he thought "what in the world happened last night?" Browne quickly discovered what all the fuss was about. Greg Whittington, who led Oakland Mills to a 25-1 season, made an earlier-than-expected commitment, picking Georgetown over Clemson, DePaul, Maryland and Texas.

"Obviously, his resume speaks for itself," Oakland Mills athletic director Troy Stevenson said. "All along, he has been teaching at the school, so the kids like him and respect him. Coming back, there's a high level of excitement, and he brings instant credibility back to the program.

Oakland Mills football coach Thomas Browne, whose Scorpions won their first homecoming game in more than a decade Friday, was named Ravens High School Coach of the Week. With the 40-31 win over Hammond, the Scorpions improved to 3-0 and need just one more win to match last season's total. They hadn't started a season with three wins since 2010 and are looking for their first winning season since 2003.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall. He scored a 49-second victory at the Seahawk Invitational last week and posted another big win in Saturday's Howard County Invitational at Centennial. The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

Our Oakland Mills community has been blindsided by Tom Carbo, County Director of Housing and Community Development. Calvin Ball, our own County Council representative, alerted Bill Gray, the chair of our Village Board, in September that county purchase of the Verona Apartments for below-market housing in the center of Oakland Mills was being considered. At a meeting this month to ostensibly "discuss" an idea regarding the purchase, the board was informed by Mr. Carbo that the purchase was in fact imminent.
