The State Roads Commission met with Howard County and state legislators to discuss the county's road and highway requirements over the next 20 years. The financial picture for the next 20 years was described as "bleak." It was estimated that it would take 10 years just to complete the current five-year critical needs program.

50 years ago (week of August 4-10, 1946):

The Kindergarten Club of Elkridge met at the home of Rev. Charles Durkee to make plans for the new Elkridge Kindergarten, which would open the same day as county public schools. Children from ages three-and-one-half up to school age were eligible to attend the kindergarten, which planned to offer the Calvert School curriculum. The cost would be $4 per child per month.
