25 Years Ago (Week of Nov. 17-23, 1968):

* Employees at Davis and Hemphill, one of Howard County's oldest manufacturers of screw machine products, were walking picket lines after failing to reach a contract with their employer.

* County commissioners turned thumbs down to the wall-to-wall carpeting planned for the Howard County Library's Main Street reading room branch, which was slated to open in the spring of 1969 in the old fire station at the corner of Church Road. The carpeting was nixed because it had been determined that floor tile would cost $200 less.

50 Years Ago (Week of Nov. 21-27, 1943):

* The home of E. H. Norris on Lawyer's Hill Road sustained minor damage from a fire. To extinguish the blaze, it was necessary to pump water from Rockburn Branch through 1,800 feet of hose.
