Here at Oak Crest we are always trying to make people more aware of diversity and disability/ The past few months I had the honor of working closely with The Office of Community Based Learning at Goucher College to further this idea.

Originally part of “Auchentorlie”, the estate of Dr George Buchanan, one of the seven commissioners responsible for the 1729 establishment of Baltimore City, Druid Hill Park is a 745-acre urban park in northwest Baltimore with boundaries made up of Druid Park Drive (north), Swann Drive and Reisterstown Road (west and south), and the Jones Falls Expressway (east).

Did you know that when Jeopardy! began in 1964, clue values in the first round ranged from $10 to $50 as opposed to the $200 to $1000 that they are now? That would have definitely made Brad Rutter’s $4,355,102 record breaking cumulative total a little more difficult to achieve, and it probably wouldn’t have allowed resident David Cuneo to win as much as he had either.  Continue reading
