Two more to run for Orphans Court

Two more candidates -- a Democrat and a Republican -- have filed to run for Carroll County Orphans Court judge, bringing the number of candidates to five.

Three seats are up for election.

Incumbent Walter T. Haines Jr., a Republican from Westminster, filed to run for a fourth term yesterday at the county Board of Elections office.

Westminster Democrat Naomi Benzil filed last week for the part-time office, which pays $7,500 a year. Also in the race are incumbent Republicans Albert W. Selby of Sykesville and Harrison E. Utz of Finksburg. Westminster resident Dorothy "Dottie" V. Utz, a Republican, also is running.

Candidates file for Central Committee

Three more residents have filed to run for the Carroll Democratic Central Committee, and the chairman of the Carroll Republican Central Committee has filed for re-election.

Two of the Democrats already are on the central committee. They are Philip S. Benzil and Corynne B. Courpas, both of Westminster.

Russell W. Allen of Eldersburg also filed at the county Board of Elections to run for the committee. Two other Democrats filed previously.

Republican Central Committee Chairman Thomas W. Bowen of Sykesville filed yesterday for re-election. He is the first to file for the GOP committee.

The primary is Sept. 13.
