The Roundup:

Cecil Whig - - ACCENT -

Don’t for­get to file Tax Day might not be when you think it is. The In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice was closed April 15 for a Wash­ing­ton, D. C. hol­i­day known as Eman­ci­pa­tion Day.

Pres­i­dent Abra­ham Lin­coln freed slaves in the Capi­tol on April 16, 1862, and Eman­ci­pa­tion Day has been an of­fi­cial paid day off in D. C. since 2005. When le­gal pub­lic hol­i­days fall on a week­end, like this year, the Capi­tol cel­e­brates them on the near­est week­day. That means Tax Day is now Mon­day.

Cel­e­brate Earth Day There are a num­ber of green ways to get out­side and honor Earth Day this week. One event is on the day it­self ( Fri­day) and runs at Fair Hill Nat­u­ral Re­sources Man­age­ment Area from 10 a. m. to 12 p. m. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to be among the first to get a tour of the new Na­ture Play Space. Then vis­i­tors will help plant na­tive plants. Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired, so call 410- 398- 1246. There is no charge for the pro­gram, but daily ser­vice fees are in ef­fect.
