25 Years Ago: Frederick County Wants Its Own Middle School - Apparently Frederick County wants its own middle school and not the proposed bi-county school to be located in Mt. Airy. At least this was the opinion of the people who attended the Frederick county school boards' public hearing following the Linganore High Schools PTSA meeting on Monday of this week at Linganore High. The school board was trying to get the sentiments of the people from Linganore, New Market, Libertytown, Green Valley and Mt. Airy areas concerning the bi-county middle school recently proposed by the Maryland State Planning Division.

75 Years Ago: Call on County Inmates - Five automobiles with twenty-four persons motored Saturday to the County Home from Manchester, with gifts to gladden the hearts of the inmates during Easter. To the women they presented fancy baskets, containing colored Easter eggs, chocolate eggs, mixed candies, small ginger, sugar and fancy cakes, apples, oranges and money. The men received the same but it was presented in large bandana handkerchief. The bright expression on their faces told the visitors how much their gifts were appreciated.
