 - Land Suit Is Entered ! Joseph Kaylor of RFD 2....
Land Suit Is Entered ! Joseph Kaylor of RFD 2. Edge- I water, Anne Arundei County, is I involved as an agent in an equity ; suit filed by a Middletown coup- i le, George W. Astlin and Reba i A . Astiin of RFD 2, Middletown, ' against Walter G. Willard and | Jean K. Willard of RFD 2, Edge- '\\ater a n d their tenant. Elvin Wolfe of the same address. The Astlms claim to be owners of a lot 10:88 acres in size in Middletown which is reached by a strip of land 20 feet wide by 1,246 feet long which they also own in fee simple. The strip leads from the Haw Bottom Road to their land. They , also own half acre of land 20 feet vide bordering on the Haw Bottom Road and ha\e used this land and the strip of land mentioned as a roadway from their main lot to the Haw Bottom Road, the suit alleges. Before owning this land, they had purchased tv\o 10-foot right of ways of the same length, 1.246 feet, had the land surveyed and constructed a roadway on this land whieh they improved with · several tons of blue slate stone ?nd later had blacktopped at great expense, the'r attorney, Murray H. Font, claims. ! The Willards. against whom i the Astlins have filed the equity suit, own four lots totalling 32 acres, the fourth lot of which , lies adjacent to the roadway on I the Astlin land. This fourth lot ', was used as a roadway some time ago but has not been so used | in many years and has now grown up in weeds and bushes, the suit claims. ' Barriers Torn Down ' The Astlms name Mr. Kaylor | as the agent for the Willards who · asked them for permission to use the roadway on their land tem- 1 porarily until the roadway on the Willard" land could be restored ; and impro\ ed. The Astlins say they agreed to this provided it caused no damage to their land or roadway. The Willards have done nothing to start the improvement of the old roadway on their land, how- eu.. and their tenant, Elvin Wolfe, has damaged the surface of this road on the Astlin land by riding over it with a chained auto in heavy snows, the equity suit claims. The Astlins say that they advised the Willards and their tenant and agent to stop using the roadway on their land but they have continued to do so. Astlins then placed barricades the roadway but they were torn down several times, the suit concludes. Therefore, since this continued trespassing will cause "irreparable damage" to their land, the Astlins ask for a court injunction to prevent the Willards or their tenants, agents or guests and visitors from using this roadway. They also ask for $500 in return for the damage already caused the roadway on their land. FACULTY NIGHT HELD A welcome was extended Andrew W. Mason, former high school principal now with the State Department of Education, as he spoke before Taneytown Lions and their guests, the teachers of the high and elementary schools, on the occasion of the club's "Faculty Night" last Tuesday evening in Taney Inn.
