From The Aegis dated Thursday morning, March 8, 1984:

One of the most volatile local political issues of the 1970s resurfaced 25 years ago with the same players as before.

A group of roughly 25 businessmen and owners of commercial property in the corridor along Belair Road met with a number of county officials, including County Executive Habern W. Freeman, to discuss the possibility of bringing public sewage service to the corridor.

Freeman told the group gathered for lunch at Cagney’s restaurant his administration would welcome a petition from property owners in the corridor for the service, though he bluntly told them they would have to bear the entire cost of getting it.

“The county,” he said, “will not participate in any funding.”

A final, once-and-for-all decision on whether the Town of Aberdeen and the Cecil County YMCA would agree on the terms of a lease for the old swim and tennis club was to come later that night, 25 years ago.

The overlying mood between officials on both sides of the talks, was positive.

“I’d say it looks pretty optimistic,” advised one reliable source.

A Town Board of Commissions staff work session on the previous Thursday responded to a previous letter from the YMCA, and hammered out the fine details of the lease over which the Town and the YMCA had disagreed.

The groundwork of the task was led in part by attorney Thomas E. Marshall.

Despite the arrest two weeks prior to 25 years ago of a suspect in the strangulation murder of William D. LaBanz, the case was far from closed.

Though the homicide of the former businessman, who lived near Bel Air was still being investigated, the money from one of the victim’ life insurance policies, worth over a quarter of a million dollars, had laid dormant, and may possibly have been the key to other arrests.

The Town Commissioners voted Tuesday of 25 years ago to deny the developers of Bradford Village another five year extension on a guarantee of completion for the 85 acre tract off MacPhail road.

The Commissioners, however, did approve, by resolution, extending a construction schedule for the project which expired the previous June, thereby allowing the developers to have building permits for recorded plats in the first section of Bradford Village.

Burglars broke into a stereo and television store in the Aberdeen area last week 25 years ago, making off with $14,081 in loot.

Thomas Knight, a salesman at Aberdeen TV and Stereo, reported to he Sheriff’s Office 25 years ago that 54 television sets were stolen by burglars who broke into the building the previous Sunday, according to the DFC Paul Cole.

No arrests had been made to that point.

The Havre de Grace Warriors powered their way to the Class C region title against Sparrows Point Pointers 25 years ago. The Warriors performed a surgical job on the Pointers, outgunning them by a 40-16 count en route to a 69 to 40 victory.

Al Casey and Thomas Hawkins led the team with a combined 35 points and eight rebounds, while Paul Grossman netted 12 baskets for the Pointers.

The Warriors were then slated to meet Bruce, the West Regional winner, in the first round of the State Playoffs that Friday afternoon.

Jodie Foster stared as Susie the Bear in “The Hotel New Hampshire,” which was playing at Tollgate Movies 25 years ago. Wilford Brimley was also starring in the film.
