On This Day in 1954
On this day in 1954, Ellis Island closed as an immigration entry point. After 1924 the famous island in Jersey City instead served as a detention and deportation center until 1954. Albert Einstein was among the millions of immigrants that were processed prior to the 1954 closure. After World War 2, Germans soldiers were imprisoned there as well as those on the left deemed hostile during the McCarthy period. Today Ellis Island houses an immigration museum. The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were closed after damage by Hurricane Sandy. The storm hit a day after the Statue of Liberty reopened. It had just completed a year-long renovation.

Congratulations to Shawn McCoy, Chris Mauer, Lance Miller, and Jason Swartzendruber (UPS/Baltimore), above, for their First Place win in the Local's bi-annual golf event held Saturday, June 23rd, at the Queenstown Harbor Golf Course in Queenstown, Md.

Teams teed off at 8:30 a.m. in a modified shotgun start format, finishing the 18-hole course in just over six hours. The morning's steamy drizzle gave way to sunny skies as golfers completed the course.
