For this issue of Cecil County Life, writer Lisa Fieldman profiles Todd Reid, the CEO and president of ReidSpeed Enterprises. Reid runs his own successful IT support business, but on weekends, he indulges his inner daredevil. You'll also meet Abigail McBride, who continues the family tradition of being an artist. Her grandmother was an illustrator and watercolorist, and her mother runs a successful gallery, so Abigail has spent her entire life surrounded by art. We profile Ellie Luther, who is a rider, trainer, and all-around horse enthusiast who grew up in Cecil County. We look at how volunteers play an important role in maintaining the 80 miles of trails stretching over 5,656 acres that are used by cyclists, walkers, fishermen, hunters and equestrians at the Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area. We tour the community of Crystal Beach Manor, a quiet, but thriving, pocket of recreation with a spectacular view of the Elk River. We explore the important work of the Alcohol & Drug Recovery Center at the Cecil County Health Department, which is helping show the light again to those who wish to see it. You'll also read about American Home and Hardware, one of the county's quintessential businesses, and how it has continually evolved through the decades. The photo essay explores Chesapeake City and challenges readers to identify as many locations as possible!
