Carroll County has agreed to pay a $40,000 penalty after a federally led inspection found the county had failed to properly protect its streams and waterways from polluted stormwater runoff. The Environmental Protection Agency announced earlier this week it had reached a settlement with the county, in which local officials agreed to pay the fine and correct federal water pollution violations found more than two years ago. The agency accused the county of failing to identify all the outfalls where stormwater runs into streams and rivers, not inspecting construction sites often enough, failing to check all county facilities for runoff controls and not providing a hotline for residents to report illegal discharges into storm drains.

The vulnerable Patapsco Road Watershed near Finksburg -- where a torrential funnel of water floods driveways and eats away at the road every time it storms -- will probably take four years to fully repair and correct the stream's flow, Carroll County officials said. "We talk about this as a funnel because all the water flows to a point, down a 100-foot ravine," said Tom Devilbiss, chief of the county's bureau of resource management, who is overseeing the project. "It's quite a large watershed for such a small stream."

IN 1920, a gallon of gas cost 13 cents, a car cost $500 and Caroline Devilbiss was born in the Uniontown house she lives in today. Devilbiss, perhaps the town's most well-known resident, celebrated her 80th birthday recently. "A friend of mine is 82," Devilbiss said. "I was telling her, `Remember when we were kids how we thought 80 was ancient.' Well, here we are." Yes, indeed. For her birthday, Devilbiss received a booklet about what went on the year she was born. The Summer Olympics were held in Antwerp, Belgium, for example.

Carroll officials have formalized a procedure to check the condition of county roads twice each year, in the spring and fall."We are studying the roads on a regular basis, doing a look over for roads that fall over carbonate rocks," Tom Devilbiss, a hydrogeologist for the county Bureau of Water Resource Management. "We've been doing these types of checks in the past, but we've sort of formalized it."Mr. Devilbiss said that while the county would have adopted a more formal way to check the conditions of its roads anyway, the sinkhole on Route 31 that resulted in the death of Robert Wayne Knight in March brought the change more rapidly.

LONGTIME UNIONTOWN resident Miriam West will turn 90 Sunday. Unlike many residents of this small community, West was born here. And except for brief times in Baltimore and Washington, West has remained a Uniontown resident. She was born Sept. 8, 1912, at the Lutheran church parsonage where her parents, Mary and Harry Fogle, had been living. Her grandfather, George Baughman, was the minister there. Home births were more common then than they are today, West said. "I don't even know where the nearest hospital would have been," she said.
