25 years ago:

The Carroll County commissioners have approved purchase of 43 acres in Taneytown for construction of a new middle school and for recreational purposes. The school, which will be designated the Northwest Middle School, will be designed to handle students in grades six, seven and eight from the New Windsor, Union Bridge and Taneytown areas. -- Carroll Record, Jan. 18, 1973.

75 years ago:

When the burgess and alderman of New Windsor purchased some time ago the town's electric light plant, they not only paid $1 in good coin for the property, they acquired a "white elephant." Complaints about the plant's service and rates have continued under municipal ownership. Recently, a petition signed by 63 customers of the plant was presented to the Public Service Commission. A hearing on the petition was held Monday by the commission in Baltimore. The New Windsor authorities explained that the proceeds of a $5,000 bond issue authorized by the last session of the legislature are being expended in improving the plant. When these improvements are completed, more satisfactory service is expected. The utilities board postponed entering an order. -- Democratic Advocate, Jan. 19, 1923.
