Get cod­ing Hour of Code takes place this week and many county or­ga­ni­za­tions are par­tic­i­pat­ing in this na­tional event.

The ini­tia­tive was started four years ago by, a non­profit ded­i­cated to ex­pand­ing ac­cess to com­puter science and in­creas­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tion by women and un­der­rep­re­sented mi­nor­ity stu­dents. The goal of the event is to in­tro­duce stu­dents to com­puter science as well as to help them learn the ba­sics of cod­ing. Log onto to use one of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s free tu­to­ri­als or check out the pro­grams be­ing of­fered by the Ce­cil County Public Li­brary.

Cheer on the Elks Af­ter be­ing Calvert 21-6 two weeks ago, Elkton High School foot­ball will take on Walk­ersville of Fred­er­ick County in the 2A state cham­pi­onship game on Satur­day at 7 p.m. at Navy-Marine Corps Memo­rial Sta­dium in An­napo­lis. Elkton has not ad­vanced to the state ti­tle game since 2000 and is only the fourth Ce­cil County team to ever achieve that feat.

Cheer them on as they try to cap off their sea­son with a state cham­pi­onship.

The men travel light — what­ever will fit in their back­packs and on the backs of their bikes.
