Union Bridge council to discuss alley dispute

The Union Bridge Town Council will meet at 6:45 p.m. tomorrow in Town Hall to discuss a dispute over ownership of an alley between two private properties in town.

Sam Meyer, who owns one of the properties straddling the alley from South Main Street to South Benedum Street, said he and his tenant had been threatened whenever they use the partially grassed-over alley by Robert Bell, who owns the adjacent property and claims the alley is on his property.

Patricia Dolly, Mr. Meyer's tenant, said that on one occasion Mr. Bell grabbed her arm while she was mowing grass that had grown over part of the alley. She filed assault charges. The council closed their monthly meeting last week to discuss legal matters regarding this issue.

History lesson on Hampstead slated

Anyone interested in Hampstead history is invited to a program at 2:30 p.m. today at the Historical Society of Carroll County.

Robert Sprinkle will show films of the Hampstead area from the 1930s and 1950s, said Martha Hyson, who represents the town on the society's board of directors.

Hampstead Memorabilia Collector Charles Bevard has prepared a display on the town for the occasion, Mrs. Hyson said.

She said Skip Amass will speak about the Legacy Campaign, an endowment campaign to raise money for the society.

Historical Society Curator Jay Graybeal said the campaign's goal is to raise $500,000.

Anglers association postpones cleanup

The Reservoir Anglers Association has canceled its Liberty Reservoir cleanup activity planned for today.

The group was planning to pick up trash and debris around the reservoir, but canceled after considering that the snow might not have melted in time for the volunteers to see what needed to be done.

Association officials have tentatively rescheduled the cleanup for March 21.
