Twelve years ago, the Caples of Westminster bought an 1850s brick mill house on 5 bucolic acres, complete with stream and small wooden bridge that they crossed on their way up the driveway.They loved the five-room, three-level house, which had been renovated before they moved in. But after their first child was born, they started thinking about an addition."We needed more space. We didn't have a dining room and we only had two bedrooms," says Robin Spampinato Caple.The Caples considered building a two-level brick addition that would blend easily with the existing structure, but eventually decided on a more creative solution -- using a log home of similar vintage to solve their space problems.

The sharply increased use of the library with concomitant patron demands for more and better services, combined with a severe budget cut, has led library officials to view with dismay the present library dilemma.

Major league baseball managers always worry about pitching.For the most part, such is the case in Carroll where most coaches think their team's success will depend on pitching.Perhaps Liberty coach Bryan Harman summed it up best, saying, "Good pitching beats good hitting."The feeling is mutual with most others.Francis Scott Key coach Bob Caples calls his staff "untested," while North Carroll coach Craig Walker tagged his team's pitching"questionable."Westminster and Liberty appear to be the two headand shoulders above the rest as the season begins.
