25 years ago Senior citizens in Carroll County will soon have a place to go, similar in many ways to the youth-run counseling and recreation center that opened early this month in the old county jail. The project to provide local services for the elderly received approval last week from the State Commission on Aging when it OK'ed a $25,000 grant request from the county Bureau of Mental Health. -- Democratic Advocate, Dec. 20, 1971.
75 years ago Let those who would hide themselves to the woods, fields and roadsides to gather Christmas greens be reminded that there is a state law, enacted in 1918, which makes it a misdemeanor for anyone to cut or in any way injure any tree or shrubbery without the written consent or personal direction of the owner. A fine of $5 to $25 or imprisonment of 30 to 90 days is the penalty. Damage in past years has been enormous. -- Democratic Advocate, Dec. 16, 1921.
100 Years Ago At Miller Bros., one of the windows contains the large and handsome Doll and Patrol Wagons, which they will give away, besides an endless variety of toys of all kinds. This is really one of the most handsome and artistic arranged windows ever seen in this city, and is much admired by the throng of people who daily crowd the large stores of this young and enterprising firm in search of holiday goods. -- Democratic Advocate, Dec. 19, 1896.
