By BEN PENSERGA Staff Writer DENTON — While moving toward the future, renovations at the Caroline County Courthouse uncovered a piece of their past. When workers removed some of the facing near the front door of the courthouse, they discovered the original 1895 brickwork to the building still in good condition. During renovations in 1966, rather then demolish the structure and start fresh, the front was merely covered, resulting in the building’s current look. Architect Pamela Gardner told the Caroline County Commissioners that these kinds of things happen all the time. “I always tell people when you renovate a building, be careful — they’re going to be some surprises,” she said. Though finding the old facing was a pleasant surprise, developers were presented with finding a solution between preserving the past and making sure the courthouse entrance can accommodate disabled people and meet modern building codes. Gardner would like to incorporate their new finds with a plan they had when the changes Uncovering history for the future Times-Record The Caroline County Vol. 20, No. 11 Two Sections, 22 pages 50¢ Bulldogs win North Bayside with 1-0 win vs.St.Michaels......1B Wednesday, October 16, 2002 INDEX Calendar . . . . . . . . . . .2A Caroline Living . . . . .6A Church Briefs . . . . . .7A Classified . . . . . . .4-10B Country Cooking . . . .6A News in Brief . . . . .3,9A Obituaries . . . . . . . . .8A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .1-3B USPS 949-920 Denton wastewater overflows into drainage ditch.....12A Photo by Brandon Hesson Dry from the downpour North Caroline High School’s Homecoming King and Queen Tony Sarver and Myeisha Scofield were crowned Friday night during halftime of the football game with James M.

By WAYNE CARTER Staff Writer WILMINGTON, Del. — The body in last month’s car fire outside of Farmington, Del., was positively identified Oct. 5 as Matthew Allen Henson. Henson, 18, of Denton, had been missing since the morning of Sept. 9 when he left his home along Garey Road for work in Delmar. Late that night, the car fire was reported 2 miles west of Farmington. The vehicle was found less than 50 feet from Gin- gerwood Road between a wooded area and a soybean field. The Farmington Fire Company arrived and extinguished the flames engulfing the Chrysler M300, registered to a couple in Crisfield. Firefighters discovered what appeared to be a human body in the trunk of the car. Police suspected the body might be Henson’s, but a positive identifica- tion could not be made until DNA test results were confirmed last week by Delaware’s Medical Examiner’s office. Police conducted a terrain search a few weeks ago and forensics tests are continuing on possible evidence according to Lt. Tim Winstead of Delaware State Police, but the cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Homicide has not been ruled out according to police. Owners of the burnt Chrysler have been questioned, said Winstead, and police are “pursuing leads” as it pertains to possible suspects. He said the investigation is ongoing, however no additional information has been made available at this time. Henson had graduated from North Caroline High School this spring, and was attending Chesapeake College. The family is having a service for friends and family at the Henson house from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. A cash reward is being offered by Henson’s family and Delaware Crime Stoppers for information leading to an arrest in this case. Anyone with information concerning this incident should call Crime Stoppers at (302) 739-5927.

The company is slated to open in March. By KENT SMITH Editor FEDERALSBURG — One to 5 inches of rain fell on the Delmarva Peninsula last weekend for some much-needed rain. By next spring, there will be plenty of water in Federalsburg Industrial Park, even in drought conditions. Town, county and state officials were on hand for a three- part ceremony Monday morning. The first was to open the second phase of Federalsburg Industrial Park east of the existing site along State Route 318, the second was to honor the town’s longtime president of the economic development commission and the third was to announce the first company to go into the expanded park. Local officials and visitors started the ceremony by going to the entrance. The ribbon was cut on the road leading into the 50-acre park, then a sign marking the second phase of the industrial park was uncovered. Also covered was the road sign and officials brought in Frank Adams, the town’s economic development commission president. Mayor Michael “Mickey” Fluharty and town manager Richard Colburn unveiled the sign — Frank M. Adams Industrial Way — with Adams’ family in attendance. Officials from the town, county and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development praised Adams, Caroline County Economic Development Commission executive director J.O.K. Walsh and those who helped to make the industrial park and the first commitment possible. “The town is fortunate to have people like Frank Adams and the rest of the Federalsburg EDC,” said Fluharty. “It makes me proud to be a Federalsburg citizen.” “Without people like Frank Adams and J.O.K. Walsh, we would not be here today,” said Federalsburg opens larger industrial park Adams gets streetside honor for economic development Photos by Kent Smith Visitors to the Caroline County Courthouse can see the layers of brick originally part of the courthouse in 1895 (left) that were covered over during the renovation in 1966.
