I know…not Carroll County news related…but this entity is kind of a spin off of what Scott E had been doing in Howard County for more than 8+ years. I thought is was worth a mention here on this entity.
I want to start of this post by saying THANK YOU to all the voters in Howard County that voted for Scott E’s Blog for the BEST BLOG in Howard County….for the 4th consecutive year.
According to the Baltimore Sun / Howard County Times / Howard Magazine “More than 34,500 votes were cast in this year’s readers’ poll, culling a list of the 74 top people to know, places to go and things to do.”

This will be the final year for Scott E’s Blog to win this award as the Blog site has been retired and the Blog social accounts are scheduled to close at the end of the year. Again, Thanks to all of the family, friends, supporters, and readers that have enjoyed the information I shared for Howard County over the years. This win again in this category is special and I really appreciate all of the support you all have provided over the years.

Thanks to EVERYONE that voted for the Blog for a 4th consecutive “Best Blog” in Howard County. I appreciate it so much.
That entity (Scott E’s Blog) website is “retired” and this entity (Carroll County Observer) is now the entity that I share information to the community. I hope to provide the same (if not better) quality of information to the community today.
