The county commissioners voted yesterday to help Lineboro residents develop a plan to build a wastewater treatment facility, one that would replace the town's failed septic systems. After a meeting with a Lineboro citizens group, the commissioners agreed to allow county engineers to draw up a cost estimate for a study to explore possible solutions for the town's sewage problems. But the commissioners stopped short of committing any funds to the study, which could cost $20,000 or more.

Weeks ago, fire tore through a church that nearly straddles the Mason-Dixon Line, destroying books, the organ, the food bank pantry, the choir room, and nearly everything else. Hand bells swung by congregants for generations exploded from their casings in the heat and landed in the nearby graveyard. On Saturday morning, cars lined the parking lot of a day care center a quarter-mile from the remains of Lazarus Church in Lineboro, waiting patiently for the temporary food bank to open.

Sam Chamelin, pastor of the Lazarus United Church of Christ in Lineboro, lives just down the two-lane road from the historic church that anchors this rural community. On Tuesday, he could see the structure glowing in the morning light. "Sam, the church is on fire," a parishioner had phoned to tell him. Chamelin jumped in his car with a "sick feeling" and headed to the church, as many of its 175 parishioners would that day. The church, which traces its history to 1853 and expanded to its existing building in 1908, before sprinklers were required, was destroyed in the blaze.

On a wagon behind the Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department, an electric chair sat empty, waiting for its next victim. A second wagon contained several brightly painted wooden boxes and a clown mannequin. In the garage, skeletons dressed in suits were resting in their coffins. "Most of what we do here is startle scares," said John Krebs, 52. "We try to come up with ways to scare people from a wagon that is a distance away." Krebs was giving a behind-the-scenes tour of the scary items that will be used to create the 14th Bedlam in the Boro Haunted Trail and the House of Horror haunted house.

Nearly nine years ago, Carroll County installed a highly touted, advanced radio emergency communications system. But the Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department was still plagued by dead spots where communication was impossible. Now, a new 340-foot communications tower is up and running outside of Lineboro. It was officially placed in service at 3:15 p.m. March 31, said Randy Waesche Jr., the county's Emergency Communications Center coordinator. The county will hold a ribbon cutting for the tower at 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Its Web site calls it "trying to keep up with the neighborhood." That's what the Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department is planning to do when it starts expanding its facilities. Lineboro is joining other fire companies in Carroll County in expanding and renovating the facilities that have outgrown equipment and personnel needs. President David Dickmyer said Lineboro awarded Jeager Inc., general contractors of Aberdeen, a $2.175 million contract to build a 7,000-square-foot addition to the Main Street firehouse, then renovate the existing building.

After seven years of trying to improve Carroll County's emergency communications system through the construction of a tower in the Lineboro area, county public safety officials are close to breaking ground. "It's moving along very well, and it's well overdue," said County Commissioner Perry L. Jones Jr., who received an update at yesterday's quarterly meeting with the county's emergency services group. "Hopefully, we'll have this thing up and running before cold weather comes." But first, county officials have to receive approval for the site plans from the county's Planning and Zoning Commission, which has scheduled a review of the plans at its meeting Tuesday.

They've lost a few mirrors off the big fire engines, but most of the members of Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department have learned over the years to back their engines into their circa 1920s firehouse without a scratch. "You've got about this much space," said John L. Krebs IV, his thumb and forefinger about 2 inches apart. "I can hit it pretty good," he said, laughing to clarify that he means guiding the equipment through the doorway, not hitting it. "But it's a challenge." Now, the fire company is in line to receive a $900,000 loan that would be used to renovate the old building and build an annex with wider doorways.

Five years after county officials began searching for a site to build a tower that would eliminate a gap in emergency radio communications in the northeast area of the county, the Carroll commissioners moved yesterday toward buying land for the project. The commissioners voted unanimously to sign an option for the county to buy for $125,000 a 3-acre parcel south of Lineboro, where the tower could be built as early as this summer. The county must advertise the agreement and wait 15 days for public comment before returning the proposal to the commissioners to complete the purchase, said Douglas Myers, Department of Public Works director.
