The county liquor board has fined the owners of the Bachman Valley Inn in Manchester $500 for two violations.
The owners had been charged with serving alcohol to a minor and failing to cooperate with a governmental agency.
On Aug. 8, a bartender at the inn served a beer to a 19-year-old undercover Maryland State Police cadet. The cadet, accompanied by state police Trooper Douglas R. Wehland, left the bar and returned abouttwo hours later to talk to the bartender.
A doorman, however, would not allow them and liquor board administrator J. Ronald Lau to enter the bar. County liquor law says liquor board officials are allowedto enter establishments that have liquor licenses at any time.
The owners, Jeffrey Keene and Scott Bartol, were fined $350 for servingthe cadet and $150 for not allowing the officials into the bar.
KEEPSTUDENTS IN SCHOOL
Before South Carroll businessman Jon Buck achieved success in the working world, he had to overcome a number of obstacles.
Graduating from high school, he said, was one of them.
He and a group of concerned adults now want to give other young people the same chance.
Buck has been appointed chairman of the CarrollCounty Mentor Program, which provides help to youths who are thinking about dropping out of high school.
"This is a particular subjectthat I'm concerned about and something that I take to heart," said Buck, president of Buck Industries in Sykesville.
Buck was appointed by the county commissioners to sit on the Mid-Maryland Private Industry Council. As part of his duties, he said he will concentrate on the Mentor Program, which is part of Gov. William Donald Schaefer's State-Wide Employment and Training Program.
"I don't believe it's inthe best interest of the business community to let only the government solve these kinds of problems," Buck told the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. "The students of today are going to be our future employees and customers.
"I think that as a nation we need to concentrate more on education. And this program pays off not only in the long term, but you get the short-term satisfaction of seeking that you're doing something to help someone."

BUSINESS ACTIVITY DOWN
The number of businesses considering locating or expanding in the county is down this year, reports an economic development official.
"Prospect activity has definitely slowed down," said William E. Jenne, business development manager for the county's Office of Economic Development.
So far this year, 40 businesses have come to the county for help in locating or expanding here, he said. Last year at this time, 60 businesses had contacted the office, and in 1989 the number was 80, he said.
The office hopes to increase the numbers through a marketing campaign in which brochures touting the county will be sent to real estate agents, bankers and investors in the region early next year, Jenne said.
In a related matter, he said Carroll County was considered as the potential site for a Hershey Foods Corp. pasta plant, but local officials didn't even know it.
Hershey was working with state economic officials, but had requested anonymity, he said. A couple of industrial sites in the county might have been suitable, but Jenne said he didn't know if Hershey officials even came to look at them.
The company announced Tuesday it would build a $60 million plant just south of Winchester, Va.
In other business at the Economic Development Commission meeting Wednesday:
* David Miller, chairman of the education subcommittee, reported that committee members may develop a brochure explaining educational options available in the county.
* Jenne reported that economic development officials met recently with county bankers to discuss lending and investments. The group plans to meet again, he said.
* EDC members agreed to change their meeting time to 2p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month, so County Commissioner Julia W. Gouge is able to attend.
