A lush garden erupting with organic vegetables, food displays that rival an upscale grocer's and sleek weatherization projects that slash energy bills — these may not seem like the typical projects of an agency that aids the poor. Yet these concepts are the reason the Community Action Council was honored by the county Tuesday with the first human-rights award it had ever given to an organization. CAC, a longtime county nonprofit, aims to blend its assistance to low-income residents with top-flight customer service, organizers say. This approach was launched when Bita Dayhoff took the helm in October 2009, and she is credited with making sure this philosophy has expanded and been imparted to all employees.

Alt, a Westminster business owner, filed on the April 11 deadline. The two will run against Mayor Kevin E. Dayhoff on May 9. Dayhoff, 51, a former councilman who was elected mayor in 2001, said the job "is an extension of my passion and love of community.

Westminster native Kevin E. Dayhoff has dreamed of being mayor of his hometown since 1958, when he ran away from home on his red tricycle and ended up meeting then-Mayor Joseph M. Mathias at City Hall. Last night, Dayhoff's dream came true. The 47-year-old self-employed businessman was elected mayor of Westminster by a narrow margin, defeating challenger and fellow council member Suzanne P. Albert by 51 votes. Dayhoff received 423 of the 807 votes cast to Albert's 372. In the four-way race for two Common Council seats, incumbent Damian L. Halstad was victorious, receiving 587 votes, the greatest number of any of the candidates.

Members of the Westminster Common Council leveled perhaps their most pointed criticisms of Mayor Kevin E. Dayhoff, taking him to task last week for writing an "insulting" letter to the county commissioners and accusing him of overstepping the bounds of his office. Council members complained that Dayhoff did not consult with them before writing a letter Aug. 22 under city letterhead calling the commissioners shortsighted for rejecting the city's request for a voting seat on a regional transportation planning board.

After a lot of debate and a closer look at Westminster's proposed $28.6 million budget for the next fiscal year, city officials have decided against imposing an annual fee for residential trash collection. Instead, the city's spending plan - expected to be introduced at tomorrow's Common Council meeting - has been recalculated to make up about $300,000 in additional revenue that the "trash tax" would have generated. The city's finance department has made more cuts, dipped into the city's reserves for equipment and vehicles, and found previously uncollected sources of money.

The number of families seeking help from the county's primary food bank rose by one-third last fiscal year, which officials attributed to the rise in foreclosures and the price of gas and utilities. The Community Action Council food bank served 4,200 families in the fiscal year that ended June 30, according to Bita Dayhoff, vice president of the nonprofit agency. Funded mainly by government and housed in the county's Gateway building, the food bank distributed more than 392,000 pounds of food, Dayhoff said.

Soft-spoken Garrett Harrison doesn't really think of himself as the answer for South Carroll's baseball team, but yesterday his pitching sure cleared up a few problems for the Cavaliers. The junior pitched five strong innings and struck out nine to lead the host Cavaliers to a 7-2 win over No. 13 Westminster in a Carroll County League game. In spite of some shoddy defense behind him on a cold and windy day, Harrison ran his streak of not giving up an earned run to 16 innings. He lost his first start to Winters Mill, 1-0, on an unearned run. The Cavaliers, thought to be one of the favorites in Carroll County, have stumbled out of the gate a bit. On Wednesday at North Carroll, the Cavs had a 6-0 lead before giving up 15 runs in an inning to lose, 17-7.

The first tree, in Sykesville, is too green from lack of sunlight and on the large side. And the third tree, in Westminster, is too squat and might be diseased. But the second tree, in Hampstead, is just right. With lush, balanced branches tinted a true blue-green, the blue spruce lives up to its name. "That is pretty darn close to being a perfect tree," says Jim Slater, Carroll County's environmental compliance officer. The winning tree will be chopped down within two weeks, trucked to the County Office Building in Westminster and propped up outside on a stand in the water fountain to prepare for the holiday tree-lighting ceremony Nov. 28. It's fast becoming an annual tradition.

It's two days after a sold-out concert at the Joseph B. Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, where more than 2,000 music lovers were serenaded - and, unwittingly, poisoned at the hands of a bioterrorist who had covertly released an aerosol of plague. Members of a Westminster emergency response team are huddled with the local mayor, cobbling together the city's strategy to deal with a possible outbreak of the pneumonic plague. They must put their heads together to present a solid plan to community officials and to reassure a near-panicked public.
