Smaller sweet potatoes are better. They’re easier to cut and they cook faster, and have a better texture once they are cooked. But it can be hard to find small ones. I think I will try to be more selective at the grocery store from now on.
Westminster was not legally a “city” until the 1838 charter — incorporation was amended by Chapter 335 of the Acts of the Maryland General Assembly of 1856, which re-characterized the municipality as a “city” and changed the titles of the elected officials from Burgess and Commissioner to Mayor and Common Council of Westminster.
The transportation article of the Maryland Code does not specify markings for crosswalks, although there are usually painted lines or brickwork, or sometimes signs with flashing lights to indicate walkways where pedestrians can legally cross.
On Saturday, Feb. 1 at 8 p.m., we bring you D.C.-based Aztec Sun. With a fiery hot beat that echoes neo-soul and enough grit to keep you toe-tapping, this “funk with soul” band produces an upbeat and retro groove, steeped in ’70s funk with overtones of Jazz, Afrobeat and Motown-era pop.
Growing up, my family ate soup rather regularly, and my husband loves soup as much as I do, so I didn’t realize until a couple of years ago that not everyone loves soup.

Up until the 1930s, Westminster did not have a sewer system. On May 23, 1934, Westminster passed an ordinance authorizing the issuance of $228,000 worth of 4% bearer bonds, “for the purpose of … constructing a complete sewer system … and a sewage disposal plant…” The first Westminster plumbing code (79 pages) was passed by way of Ordinance 249 on Jan. 14, 1935.
