Ernest Burke began playing serious baseball as a member of the Marine Baseball team while stationed in Hawaii. A “natural” all-around athlete whose team won the Pacific Championship, he played against Johnny Wrigley, who suggested Ernest should consider the Negro Leagues after the service.

Among Burke’s teammates were Junior Gilliam and Joe Black, future Rookies of the year of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Burke played for the Elites for two years, and in South America in the off seasons. In 1949 he joined the Poughkeepsie-Kingston team in Western New York as a pitcher, outfielder and third baseman. In 1950 and 1951 the left-handed hitter/right-handed pitcher played for St. Jean in the Canadian Provincial League, hitting .308 and .258 and sporting a pitching record of 15-3 and 8-8.

***Chesapeake Bay Ship Watcher Update***

Keep a weather eye out, PRIDE II will be departing Baltimore tomorrow in preparation for our upcoming Havre de Grace Star-Spangled Banner NHT Visit. The visit is in partnership with Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway, Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail, City of Havre de Grace, & The Chesapeake Independent Blues.

The plan is to cast off lines sometime after noon tomorrow, sail out into the Chesapeake, & drop the hook for the night. The anchorage location is dependent on the weather, but, given the forecast, it will likely be off Gibson Island. Friday morning the crew will haul back & set sail for Havre de Grace. PRIDE II can be expected to be viewable from the shore in town at 5 PM, take sail in by 5:30 PM, & be alongside the dock by 6.

The vessel's track & the sails set will be dependent on the wind & weather. You can track PRIDE as she travels by going to pride2.org/pride-of.../pride-ii-is-underway/.

Dear Citizens of Havre de Grace,

As you may be aware, the Harford County Board of Education has recently released information about a proposed plan to balance enrollment in Harford County Public Schools. While this plan is currently very much still in the “proposal” stage, it has upset many Havre de Grace residents who are concerned that their children may not attend Havre de Grace schools in the future.

As a career Harford County Public school teacher and father of three, I know first-hand how important your child’s school is to you and your family. Although the HCPS Balancing Enrollment Plan is wholly under the jurisdiction of Harford County Public Schools, please know that I will strongly advocate for my Havre de Grace citizens and their desire for their children to remain in Havre de Grace schools.

We are all eager to see all of our students attend the brand-new Havre de Grace Middle / High School, a dream that came true through the hard work and advocacy of Havre de Grace citizens and elected officials.
I urge you to remain informed throughout this lengthy redistricting process. You can learn more about the Balancing Enrollment Plan at HCPS.org.

You can also voice your questions and concerns to your elected leaders who represent you in this process: Board of Education District F Representative Sonja Karwacki ([email protected]) and County Council District F Representative Curtis Beulah ([email protected]).

Again, please remember that this plan is still very much in the development stage, with a final vote scheduled for Winter of 2022. Your input and informed advocacy will be a key part of this process.

Thank you for your continued passion and pride in all that is Havre de Grace.

William T. Martin
Mayor, City of Havre de Grace

"I wish to congratulate Chief Hurst, President Miller and the men and women of the Susquehanna Hose Company on achieving the most coveted ISO rating of "1". With approximately 300 nationwide and the SHCO now being the third company in Maryland to obtain this rating, the ISO 1 classification is emblematic of the hard work, professionalism and dedication that the Havre de Grace citizens have benefitted from for decades. Let us never forget that the SHCO is an all volunteer service. These are our fellow citizens, our neighbors, and our friends. The City could not be more proud!"
