Crispy clear

12.9 degrees and starry at 6:00 a.m.

From WKTV: "Cold weather arrived last night and has caused a flash freeze across the area. Watch out for some slippery sidewalks, driveways, and side streets. Sunshine returns today with temperatures climbing only into the teens.

By the middle and end of the week the mild weather returns. Temperatures will likely make a run into the mid to upper 40s."

If you're a fan of Boxing, you are no doubt familiar with the name Fernando Guerrero - an undefeated middleweight who will fight Derrick Findley at the Wicomico Civic Center, Salisbury, Maryland, on Friday the 18th.

And even if you're not a boxing fan but grew up around Waterville, you probably know the name of Guerrero's manager / co-trainer - Hal Chernoff.

Hal Chernoff and Fernando Guerrero

Photo used with permission of Joe Abero of SBYNEWS.

Chernoff, a 1973 graduate of WCS, was one of the three 1990 founders of the Main Street Gym, "a non-profit organization whose primary aim is to promote, develop and foster Amateur Boxing among the underprivileged and at-risk youths of our community. An at-risk youth is defined as a youth who may be experiencing behavioral problems in school, home or community. Main Street Gym is also open to both males and females from eight years of age to adult."

I found this apparently unsolicited comment on a boxing blog: "Hal Chernoff has trained this kid and done an awesome job. These fights are eight rounders for a reason he is bringing him along very methodically. on that note hats off to the Chernoff family for bringing boxing to Salisbury. The Chernoff's have done it with great respectibily. There have been others that where no more than criminals trying to hide their dirty money. Thanks Hal and Nancy* for being the classy people you are. I know if i had a child that wanted to pursue this sport I could think of no one better than Hal Chernoff to bring him along."

*Daughter of Phil and Vera Barnes.

The fight will be telecast on ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" from 9:00 - 11:00 p.m. on Time-Warner Digital Cable channel 25.


Here and There Pictures

Yesterday, at 1:00 p.m.

Babbott Avenue and Putnam Street were filled with wonderfully Springy puddles and mud!

I didn't hear any complaints!

It felt like Spring, and you could just abut watch the mountain of snow in front of Dollar General grow smaller and smaller.

The DPW wasn't waiting for the warmer weather to melt snowbanks along Main Street.

I wonder how many truckloads of snow have gone to the old dump?


The busiest place in the village yesterday morning had to have been Merri-Rose Florist, where Jackie Roys took order after order on the 'phone; owner Diane Cornish and assistant Val Schenk assembled arrangements (all different!) and Diane's daughter Allison and daughter-in-law Aimee (above) kept making deliveries. They had already done over a hundred arrangements and there didn't seem to be any sign of a "slow down!"

An article in this morning's O-D tells you how to
make those beautiful flowers last!


By mid-afternoon, rain had begun to fall, but a "Bobcat" was on its return trip from Sangerfield and - Yes! - the sidewalk is plowed!

By 4 o'clock the rain had turned to snow, but I'd already taken my "good news" picture of the day:

...... coming down the Sally Road hill from Hanover to Forge Hollow I spotted a clump of willow trees - suddenly shining, even in the gloom, with bright Spring gold!


Have a Good day, everyone!
