* The Carroll County Board of Education, at its meeting on July 29, voted to continue its policy on payment of tuition for community college students.

The policy provides that the Board of Education will pay that portion of tuition cost which would normally be absorbed by the home county for its residents, but not to include costs normally paid by the student or the state. -- Community Reporter, Aug. 7, 1970.

* The Western Maryland Telephone Company has been delaying the extension of its lines to Union Bridge and Middleburg because a satisfactory franchise could not be obtained from the authorities of the former place. It has finally been determined to pass Union Bridge entirely and the line will be at once extended to Middleburg. We trust an amicable arrangement may soon be reached and the service introduced. -- American Sentinel, Aug. 3, 1895.
