25 Years Ago

* The proposed regional jail received an apparently mortal blow this week when a Frederick County commissioner announced that his county had no desire to participate in the tri-county penal facility plans. Frederick County Commissioner Charles Collins said that he and his associates on the county board have nixed the idea of transporting county prisoners to a jail to be

located in Carroll or Howard counties. -- Democratic Advocate, Sept. 29, 1969.

50 Years Ago

* St. John's (Leister's) Lutheran Church is celebrating its 100th anniversary. St. John's was organized by the Rev. J. Philip Willard. During 1843 and 1844, services were conducted by Rev. Willard in Abbott's School House, a short distance from the present church on the Westminster-Hampstead road. -- Democratic Advocate, Sept. 25, 1944.
