Faced with the failure of more than a quarter of the septic systems in two northern Carroll communities, the county Health Department has recommended construction of a public sewer system. Edwin Singer, director of the county's environmental health division, called the 27 percent failure rate high - the average is about 3 percent. More than 70 percent of the homes in Union Mills and Silver Run were built on small lots with no space to build replacement systems. "Our recommendation is based on the public health implications and our survey," Singer said at a public meeting with about 60 residents Monday night.

For 17 years, a sign posted in a barren field along Littlestown Pike promised the site was the future home of Westminster Church of Christ. The sign has long since faded, but the promise came true yesterday when the small congregation held its first service in its new home. "We got this land in 1985 and considered it a blessing," said Gary D. Pearson, evangelist to the 147-member congregation. "We have waited a long time, and we can finally cross `future' off that old sign out there." It took years of passing the collection plate while meeting in a building that resembles a house more than a church before the congregation raised enough money to start construction in August.
