25 years ago (week of May 30-June 5, 1971):

Merchants in Ellicott City's Main Street area presented a petition to the County Council and the county police, asking for "relief and protection" from vandals and loiterers on lower Main Street. Police Chief G. Russell Walters replied that little could be done about loiterers in the absence of an anti-loitering law in the county.

A clean-up day was held at the Rock Hill Swimming Pool on New Cut Road in Ellicott City, to prepare the facility for the summer season. Volunteers painted the pool, cleaned the shower rooms and mowed the grass, in exchange for a free lunch provided by the Ellicott City Area Recreation Council.

50 years ago (week of May 26-June 1, 1946):

Residents of the Harwood Park area of Elkridge filed a petition with the Howard County Metropolitan Commission to have their area designated as a sub-district for public water and sewer service.

Howard County teachers attended lectures and field trips on soil conservation. It was hoped that educating the teachers in soil conservation would lead to the inclusion of the subject in the public school curriculum.
