Despite the fair amount of rain in the past several weeks, Carroll County officials are urging residents to continue water conservation because the drought has not released its grip. Reservoirs in the county remain low and ground-water levels are below average, county officials said. The last summer with above-normal rainfall was 1996, a year marked by several hurricanes. The county Department of Public Works has mailed about 8,000 fliers detailing conservation measures to homeowners served by the public water system in South Carroll.

Born in 1999, the Francis Scott Key girls lacrosse team still has yet to beat a Carroll County opponent. With an 8-7 victory over visiting Catoctin last night, however, the Eagles, who spent much of their season on the short end of lopsided losses to the likes of Liberty and North Carroll, became the county's last team standing. Rachel Devilbiss scored three goals and Melissa Hiner scored the go-ahead goal off a referee's throw-in with 7:31 left, as Key rallied from a 6-4 deficit to win the Class 2A-1A West Regional final.

Terms of the four-page plea agreement of Tracy C. Devilbiss, 28, one of five people accused in the killing of Mark Anthony Miller, were sealed at the defense's request. But in court, attorneys said it is conditioned upon her cooperation in related murder prosecutions that are forthcoming.

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.

UNIONTOWN -- It's not difficult to identify the evidence that Caroline "Toots" Devilbiss, 77 years old and wearing worn-down sneakers, is running a peculiar little post office.Clue No. 1 could be the wanted posters of the Turkish drug runner and the Mexican gangster -- which are hung on chicken wire, with wooden clothespins.A dead giveaway might be the fact that the "clerk" most often on the chair behind the counter is a tired-looking cat, 19 years old, nameless and altogether deaf.But the most obvious sign that Devilbiss is running something special: Her customers actually love the postal service.
