With a layup midway through the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's game, North Carroll senior Caitlin Bach became Carroll County's all-time leading scorer in girls basketball. Bach, a 5-foot-11 forward, scored 29 points in a 60-16 win over visiting Brunswick to boost her career points total to 1,516, eclipsing the record of 1,514 set by Melanee Wagener of South Carroll in 1988.

What happened to freedom of speech and the biblical principles the United States was founded upon, she asked a handful of constituents who gathered for one of her monthly discussions Saturday. The current commissioners, all voted into office in 2010, decided that they would open their meetings with prayers because "we believe that guidance from God would be a good thing in making the decisions before us," Frazier said.

Monday night's audience included a number of educators and Liberty High School students.
