Maryland State Police reported a quiet weekend and an almost eventless Christmas Day. There were, however, a few incidents reported. Police apprehended a juvenile for larceny of parts off a vehicle in the parking lot of Parks Ford Co., Hampstead. Two other juveniles escaped on foot and are still at large. The police also apprehended a quantity of marijuana and paraphernalia. All stolen property was recovered. The youth was released to the custody of his parents. -- the Carroll Record, Dec. 28, 1972.

We congratulate Bud Shaeffer and Walter Hook, co-chairman, on their successful celebration of the finest Christmas treat to the children of Carroll since the end of World War II. A parade consisting of the newly organized Moleville Post of Foreign Wars drum corps with majorettes marched from the Armory over Main Street to the place of celebration. Santa Claus rode in a large float with a mailbox, and Boy and Girl Scouts collected letters. Those under 12 years of age received a box of candy, an orange and a noisemaker. -- Democratic Advocate, Dec. 26, 1947.
