Sensabaugh delays election announcement

Former Carroll County Sheriff Grover N. Sensabaugh said yesterday he will wait until next month to announce whether he will run to regain the office he held for two terms.

Mr. Sensabaugh was scheduled to speak Monday night to the Carroll County Democratic Club at Frisco Pub, but the meeting was canceled because of snowstorm warnings.

First Lt. Kenneth L. Tregoning, a Democrat and former commander of the Maryland State Police barracks in Westminster, announced in November that he would run against incumbent Republican John H. Brown. Lieutenant Tregoning also was scheduled to speak at Monday's meeting.

Mr. Brown defeated Mr. Sensabaugh by 227 votes in the 1990 general election.

The next Carroll County Democratic Club meeting will be Feb. 7.

Manchester man, 53, shot while hunting

A 53-year-old Manchester man, who was shot in the abdomen by a fellow hunter on New Year's Day, remained in satisfactory condition at the Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury yesterday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Harvey Teets was hunting in Wicomico County on the Eastern Shore with a companion, Robert Hamilton, 63, of Baltimore, when he was shot, according to a spokeswoman for the Department of Natural Resources.

Mr. Teets was driving a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle without lights about 5:45 p.m. Saturday when he was allegedly mistaken for a deer and shot, Nancy Howard, the spokeswoman said.

Both hunters were not in compliance with the rules of hunting, she said. Mr. Teets was not wearing fluorescent orange clothing and Mr. Hamilton shot at something he was unsure of.

The investigation of the shooting is continuing.

Commissioners approve country inn ordinance

The Carroll County commissioners approved an ordinance yesterday to allow country inns to cater invitation-only functions on their sites.

Before the decision, which takes effect immediately, country inns could serve food only to overnight guests. This prevented the proprietors from renting the inns for wedding receptions and similar events.

Under county regulations, country inns must be 50 years old, accommodate up to eight guests and serve at least two meals a day.

In other business, the commissioners:

* Approved a resolution closing the old Meadow Branch Road in Westminster. The closure is necessary to complete the Carroll County Regional Airport Expansion.

* Postponed voting on an ordinance that would have allowed the commissioners to make recycling mandatory in the county after a 90-day notice.

Commissioner Donald I. Dell asked to have the ordinance reworded to clarify that yard waste will be accepted at the landfill compost site, but not buried with the solid wastes.
