Lowe's hardware to open Feb. 18 in Westminster

The new Lowe's store will open in Westminster on Feb. 18, according to the company.

The 65,000-square-foot building is off Englar Road and Route 140, near the recently opened Wal-Mart store.

Mason-Dixon reports net income up 35.1%

Mason-Dixon Bancshares Inc. and its principal subsidiary, Carroll County Bank and Trust Co., have announced that year-end 1992 net income amounted to $5,771,862, an increase of 35.1 percent or $1,500,436 over year-end 1991. On a per-share basis, earnings were $3.94, compared with $2.81 at the end of 1991.

The noninterest income exclusive of securities gains increased by nearly 21 percent. A major contributor to this gain was booking the refinancing of more than $70 million of residential mortgages. Many of these loans are sold to the secondary mortgage market. The gains achieved through these activities resulted in a growth of $456,000, an increase of 147 percent.

Total assets at year-end 1992 were $460.1 million, an increase of $8.6 million (1.9 percent) over-year end 1991. Total deposits held amounted to $370.6 million, an increase of 2.2 percent ($8 million) compared with $362.6 million in 1991. Total loans decreased by 10.9 percent, declining to $200.9 million.
