Want to express yourself on a license plate? Go ahead. The state will gladly take your $50 per year. You can't say any old thing, though. The Motor Vehicle Administration has cataloged more than 4,000 words, phrases and letter-number combinations it won't put on a tag. The agency's Objectionable Plate List, as it's called, is a compendium of vulgarities, obscenities and other no-no's aimed at keeping tags out of the gutter. The Baltimore Sun requested the information last week, hoping to share what the MVA doesn't want you to see on the road.

For years, Peter Dacey had known about the homeless man living in Aberdeen, first in his car and later in a tent behind a store. He had let him clean up at City Hall, and often threw a couple bucks his way. But in March, Dacey, who was the city manager at the time, decided to do something bigger: He gave him a house to stay in. It was a vacant, city-owned bungalow at the base of a water tower just off Churchville Road. For a few months, free of rent or water and heating bills, Lewis B. Miller Jr. could get a roof over his head, take showers, perhaps get a job. "This man helped me," said a Miller, 56, in an interview at his home.

Aberdeen commissioners have approved the sale of $760,000 in bonds to pay for the extension of sewer services to a 500-acre industrial area in the south section of the town.The bonds will be issued through the Farmers Home Administration, and will pay 7 percent. They will be paid back over 40 years by assessments placed on property owners in the new service area, Town Administrator Peter A. Dacey said.The assessment agreement was established with the property owners so town residents will not have to pay for the sewer extension project, Dacey said.

The city of Aberdeen is waiting to hear whether it can withdraw water from Deer Creek, after the city's Public Works Department shut down four wells late last month because of perchlorate contamination. The action is being sought under an emergency accord approved in December by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission. Susan Obleski, spokeswoman for the commission, said the agency received a letter Monday from Randolph Robertson, Aberdeen's public works director, informing the agency "that I will be coordinating with the Army to utilize the water" from Deer Creek.

The decision to suspend Aberdeen's police chief, John R. Jolley, and dock his pay for improperly using city funds and illegally voiding traffic and parking tickets represents minimum punishment for his misdeeds, or "poor judgment."Under a strong, confident city government, the chief would likely have been dismissed, even though a thorough state investigation found insufficient grounds to bring criminal charges against him. But stable government has not existed in the year since Aberdeen elected its first mayor and council under a new charter.

When a regional water-use review panel meets next month in Cecil County, the group is to receive a progress update on Aberdeen's request to draw water from Deer Creek, a scenic river flowing through northern Harford County. The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is a multistate agency that approves water uses affecting the river, which runs from New York through Pennsylvania and Maryland, and it must give final approval to any permit for withdrawing water from the river or its tributaries.

Aberdeen always has been a company town. Established in the mid-1800s and named in honor of an influential railroad man's native home of Aberdeen, Scotland, it first made a name for itself when the U.S. Army established the Aberdeen Proving Ground in 1917, six months after the United States entered World War I. The town's proximity to roads, shipping and railways made it an ideal place for a military facility. As a center for military testing, research and training, the post is the Army's oldest active proving ground and the largest employer in Harford County.

Old Mill's 53-51 loss in overtime at Meade Friday in the Class 4A, East Region final was more than a basketball defeat to coach Paul Bunting.Bunting was disappointed for his players after they came so close to upsetting No. 5-ranked Meade (24-2), which set a county public school record for wins in a season, but he was more sad about saying goodbye to what he considered to be the best group of seniors and parents he's had in his 14 seasons in Millersville."I'm really appreciative of many things, " said Bunting, who has a career record of 177-141.
