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.

A lawyer for a Carroll County woman accused of arranging her husband's death said yesterday that the victim was fatally shot because of a dispute over drug money and that the gunman acted alone. Melissa Lynn Baumgardner Shipley's attorney, David P. Henninger, focused on the alleged drug relationship between the gunman, Butchie Junior Stemple, 28, of Taneytown, and the victim, Scott E. Shipley, 27, in his opening statement. "Scott Shipley and Butchie Stemple dealt drugs together and used drugs together," Henninger said, adding that Stemple is not credible because he is seeking a more lenient sentence by testifying against Melissa Shipley.
