Nevin seeks seat on Town Council, runs with Shoemaker

Hampstead Mayor Christopher M. Nevin has announced that he will run for a Town Council seat in May on the same ticket as mayoral contender Haven Shoemaker.

Nevin said last month that he would not seek a third term as mayor because, between his banking job in Baltimore and four children, he no longer had enough time for the job. Serving on the Town Council is a way to stay involved with Hampstead affairs but for fewer hours, Nevin said.

He and Shoemaker, a town councilman, have dubbed themselves the "trading places" ticket, because if both are victorious, they would swap jobs. Councilman Wayne Thomas has also announced a bid for mayor.

2 Eldersburg juveniles accused in vandalism

Two Eldersburg boys have been charged in a wave of vandalism that caused nearly $10,000 in damage to several vehicles in southern and central Carroll County, police said.

State police, investigating reports that stones had been used to damage several vehicles between Feb. 8 and March 17 in Eldersburg, Sykesville, Finksburg and Westminster, pulled over a vehicle similar to one believed used in the crimes and found the two boys, along with several large stones and pieces of asphalt, in the car, police said.

The two boys were charged last week as juveniles with more than 50 counts of malicious destruction of property. They were released to the custody of their parents.
