The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing Elkton, accusing the Cecil County town of firing an assistant town administrator because of his age. The age discrimination lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, claims Elkton laid off Andrew P. Johnson because he was 70, even though he had received strong performance evaluations, the EEOC said Thursday. The EEOC contends that Johnson was replaced by two younger employees, one in her 20s and another in his 40s. Johnson was hired as the assistant town administrator and finance director in 1999 and fired in November 2007.

A recent article about the declining marriage business in Elkton suggested there was an "unconfirmed" report that Babe Ruth had been married there ("Wedding chapel and amenities for sale in Elkton," Dec. 28). Such reports are not only unconfirmed, they are completely untrue - despite the claims of several publications, including the Cecil County government tourism Web site. At the age of 19, after his first season in professional baseball, George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. married Helen Woodford, a waitress whom he met in Boston.

It was the summer of 1964, and Harry Williams was in a hurry. One Monday, the 21-year-old asked his girlfriend, Charlotte, to marry him. They were in love and couldn't wait to get married, he remembers. They said "I do" that Saturday. Fifty years later, the couple returned to the place they exchanged vows on that June day. Today, the Historic Little Wedding Chapel in Elkton is the last remnant of what was once a booming wedding industry in this Cecil County town off U.S. 40. "He's been an amazing husband," Charlotte Williams, now 68, said on a recent Saturday, when they took a private bus filled with family members from New Jersey to Maryland to renew their vows.

Fifty years ago Sunday, mere days before the Christmas holiday, dozens of families from Elkton and north along the northeast corridor to Staten Island, N.Y., were changed in an instant. The mid-air explosion of Pan Am Flight 214 over Elkton became Maryland's largest loss-of-life disaster. The plane, a Boeing 707, returning from San Juan, Puerto Rico, made a stop in Baltimore to refuel before continuing to Philadelphia to drop off the last of its passengers. But, Pan Am Flight 214 never made it past Elkton.

I enjoyed Mike McGrew's article regarding the Millennials ( "What's a parent to do with a Millennial?" Aug. 12). I grew up in the 1940s and '50s, and we did not have central heat, central air, television, computers or indoor plumbing. But guess what? I survived! Today's kids have too many material comforts and want more. And who gives it all to them? Their doting parents. Right on, Mr. McGrew! Ruth Lashley, Elkton

On Christmas morning, an unidentified man called the restaurant and liquor store Wesley's in Elkton and asked for the winning Powerball numbers. When a clerk read the numbers over the phone, the mystery caller said, "Looks like I am the winner. " So far, that's all the longtime family-run restaurant, lounge and liquor store knows about the person who won the $125 million jackpot. Maryland Lottery officials don't know who the winner is either. Like nearly all state offices, the agency was closed Monday, said spokeswoman Carole Y. Everett.
