H. Cassell Roop, former New Windsor mayor and town council member who had operated a century-old, family-owned grocery store for nearly 50 years, died of complications from diabetes Monday at Long View Nursing Home in Manchester. The lifelong New Windsor resident was 79. Mr. Roop was a 1943 graduate of New Windsor High School and served in the merchant marine aboard Liberty ships during World War II. He participated in convoys to Brazil, Romania and China, family members said. After the war, he went to work in the mom-and-pop business that had been a fixture in New Windsor since its founding by John H. Roop in 1896.

THE question inevitably comes when someone dies at a seemingly premature age. Why? Some people trundle through life with every conceivable bad habit and live well into their 90s. Other folks do everything right -- eat the right things, exercise regularly, avoid smoke and drink -- and die young. Why? When Anne Arundel County Councilman Cliff R. Roop collapsed at a council public hearing Monday and died of a heart attack, lots of people asked why. Many were shocked as much as they were saddened.

Anne Arundel County Councilman Cliff Roop collapsed and died of a heart attack Monday night, minutes after stepping out of a meeting and discussion on zoning amendments. The Severna Park Republican was 45. The owner of the Colony 7 Shell Service Station, Roop was active in the Republican Party, neighborhood groups and coaching youth athletics before his election to the County Council in November 1998. From his constituents in the 5th District to his two daughters, Roop devoted his life to making theirs better, friends and colleagues said yesterday.

They're a semi-secretive circle of Severna Park businessmen who convinced a gas station owner that his first stab at public office should be a run for the Anne Arundel County Council. Their man won, but they mourned his death a year later. They're known as the Roop Troop, named for the candidate they supported in the 1998 election. And now they're back - this time looking to unseat the woman who filled the late Cliff Roop's council seat. "I think we all wanted to get behind a candidate together," said Lonnie Lancione, a Roop Troop member who with his wife, Dianna, publishes the Severna Park Voice community newspaper.

New Windsor voters elected yesterday a new mayor, re-elected one incumbent and selected a newcomer for the town's council. Sam M. Pierce, a 67-year-old retired business owner, was elected mayor after an uncontested campaign. Incumbent Neal Roop led council winners, followed by newcomer Ed Palsgrove, who defeated incumbent Rebecca Harman by 99 votes. Bill Geelhaar finished fourth and Frazier Hollenbeck fifth. Hollenbeck did not run an active campaign because of a recent hospitalization.

No grain has passed through the elaborate chutes of Roop Mill for a half-century. But if you ran a ton of wheat through it today, it might still come out as flour.You would get a lot of dust and cobwebs, too. The only thing missing from the old turbine-powered mill is a bell that rang to let the miller know a barrel was full of flour.But a whole lot more has been piled on since the 18th-century mill closed in the 1940s. Old boards, furniture and farm tools have piled up inside, all but hiding the treasure: the intact remains of a once-thriving grain mill.

Carroll County's two smallest municipalities will be electing council members, but the only contest is in New Windsor, where three candidates have filed for two seats. Like New Windsor's mayor, Union Bridge's three council candidates are running unopposed in the May 10 elections. In New Windsor, Mayor Sam M. Pierce is running unopposed for a second four-year term. Incumbent Councilmen Neal C. Roop and Edwin W. Palsgrove are being challenged by Kevin Shaughness. Pierce, 71, a retired medical business owner who settled in town about 1985, lives with his wife, Doris, in the historic Isaac Atlee House on Water Street.

Remnants of iron cable and wood planking dangle from a suspension bridge that spans the Meadow Branch, a winding stream that starts near Westminster and eventually flows into the Patapsco River. Built as long as 135 years ago and the only one of its kind remaining in Carroll County, the 240-foot-long bridge sways precariously above three sturdy, 20-foot-tall stone piers, forbidding any crossing. For Jack Cugle, a 52-year-old entrepreneur who is painstakingly renovating Roop's Mill into an inn and conference center, the bridge is just one more challenge.

A 19th-century grain mill business that was once a center of commerce in Westminster could soon become a center of hospitality in the Carroll County seat. Idle for more than 60 years, Roop's Mill - a sprawling property with a four-story granary, two houses, a barn and several small outbuildings - was owned and operated by seven generations of a Carroll County family. Jack Cugle - who calls himself "the first non-Roop to own the property since 1745" - will open a bed-and-breakfast inn this spring in the first building he has remodeled.
