Low Lake Levels - Deep Creek Lake

Curious about the low lake levels?  Here’s the scoop.  Construction is proceeding on the Western Conveyance Sewer System (Shingle Camp Road and Stockslager Road) and the installation of the sewer line near the breast of the dam works best at the lowest possible lake levels.  The power company has been cooperating with the sewer construction contractor to make releases to bring down the water level.  Those additional releases have enabled more whitewater fun on the Youghiogheny River.  Never fear, though, we have been assured that the “intake” for snowmaking water will be maintained.  It is now time to “THINK SNOW!”

Student Loan Debt-Hogan Announces First SmartBuy Purchase

 

Program will Ease Student Loan Debt, Promote Homeownership!

 ANNAPOLIS, MD (November 21, 2016) – The Hogan Administration today announced the first home purchase under a new homeownership initiative designed to ease the burden of student debt. Maryland SmartBuy, within the Department of Housing and Community Development, is the first program of its kind in the nation and will make move-in-ready homes available to buyers while eliminating student loan debt burden, which is often a significant barrier to homeownership for younger homebuyers.

 

Maryland SmartBuy is the latest initiative in the Hogan administration’s ongoing commitment to help qualified buyers move out from under student debt and into homeownership. The event was attended by Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford and Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Secretary Kenneth C. Holt.

 

“With the launch of SmartBuy, Maryland is among the first in the nation to actively address student debt as an obstacle to homeownership,” said Lt. Governor Rutherford. “We recognize that first-time homebuyers play a pivotal role in the health of the housing market, which is critical to the strength of Maryland’s overall economy.”

 

This law, which was introduced by the Hogan Administration in the 2016 Legislative Session, authorizes the department to make direct payments on student loans in conjunction with other financial assistance or residential mortgage loans offered under the Maryland Mortgage Program, beginning with the Maryland SmartBuy initiative.

 

Under the initiative, eligible buyers with student debt can purchase move-in-ready properties made available through the department. The typical buyer can realize substantial savings on quality homes throughout Maryland. Specifically, Maryland SmartBuy will:

 

Eliminate the buyer’s student loan debt

Provide the buyer with one convenient payment per month

Enable the buyer to access attractive financing and closing cost assistance

Ensure a safe, streamlined, and straightforward home buying and financing experience.

 

“With Maryland SmartBuy, our state is at the forefront of removing the obstacle of student debt to successful homeownership,” said Department Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “We want to empower young people to establish roots in Maryland and help strengthen our state as they enjoy the financial security of homeownership.”

 

The initiative will create an innovative home buying model that could be adopted by the rest of the nation. Mortgage loans will be provided through the department’s Maryland Mortgage Program, which has been the state’s flagship homeownership assistance program for over 30 years. Traditionally, the program provides fixed-rate mortgages, primarily to first-time homebuyers, along with other down payment and closing cost incentives.

A little about GLAF…Garrett Lakes Arts Festival began with a vision of a music festival in Garrett County.

In December 1986, a group of Garrett County residents gathered to explore that vision and a related proposal from local resident Kathryn Sincell and violinist Erick Friedman. The joint desire was to promote cultural and artistic activities in the County and to rekindle the Mountain Chautauqua spirit, once a hallmark of Garrett County life. A core of 22 citizens evolved from the originators, many of whom remained in leadership roles serving with dedication and distinction in the ensuing years. GLAF is a non-profit 501(3)(C) corporation.

Fall Fishing Deep Creek Lake Maryland

Fall Fishing Deep Creek Lake Maryland. This year, fall fishing puts you in the pleasant “football weather” category in the 1st week of November here at the lake. The breeze gets a bit stiffer, the wind has a mild chill to it and the fishing bite lights up in its fall spender. The temperature has been a bit warmer than the past few years and you see a lot of boats late in the season trying to score a stringer full of delicious fish.

Check out http://www.fishdeepcreek.com/ for real time fishing reports, techniques and a message board that will keep you in the hunt for fresh fish.

Here is the latest report from the message board of 11/5/16-

Fished from 7 – 3 mainly on the north end with good results. Water temp was 51 at 7am and climbed to 56 at 2:30. Water was stained for the most part but the clearer water held the better fish.

Mainly SM were caught (11″ up to 15″) in the am on top water and the the afternoon was plastics fished very slow when fish were found.

1 Nice LM was caught under a dock on plastic. Caught 9 fish total and not a bad day on DCL. All fish were caught in 10-20 FOW.

 

Come join us over the next couple of weeks and wet a line before the lake starts its traditional freeze. Next fishing season is the popular ice fishing season which can be mega-productive!
