Federal prosecutors upped their ante in the case against a former Western Maryland police officer yesterday, tacking on new civil rights charges that accuse Jeffrey S. Shifler of threatening schoolchildren and a city councilwoman because they are black. Shifler, the 41-year-old suspended officer from Maugansville, was arrested in February and charged with sending racist and homophobic letters to public officials and community leaders, and calling in an anthrax threat to City Hall in Hagerstown.

"ANYONE WHO PLAYS brass, reeds or percussion is invited to rehearse with us," said Francis Staley, director of the Alesia Band, which celebrates its centennial this year.The first rehearsal of the year takes place at 7: 30 p.m. tomorrow in the band room at North Carroll Middle School. Every year, the band welcomes new members into its ranks. The band has about 30 instrumentalists.Surviving for 100 years is apparently not uncommon among our local community bands. The Yellow Springs Band in Frederick County has been around 112 years; the Brodbecks, Pa., town band celebrated its 110th anniversary recently; and the Westminster Municipal Band has passed the 100-year mark, too.Like many in the United States, these bands began after the Civil War. Brass and reed instruments had been improved by that time by German instrument makers and could produce a full-bodied sound outdoors.

Giving themselves a choice between two possible sites for a radio tower to alleviate problems with emergency communications in the northeast area of the county, the Carroll commissioners signed an option yesterday to buy a parcel on Alesia-Lineboro Road. The 6.874-acre wooded property, owned by Donald J. and Catherine L. Fasca Sr. at 4509 Alesia-Lineboro Road, would cost the county $100,000. The lot is larger than one on which the commissioners signed a purchase option in February, meaning that if the 330-foot tower fell it would not land on neighboring property, said Howard S. Redman, the county's public safety director.
