25 years ago – 1997: As preparations are completed for Hong Kong’s transfer to Chinese control on July 1, Congress is expected to vote today on renewing China’s most-favored-nation trade status. “I will vote yes even though I have great concerns with China,” said US Rep.

10 years ago – 2012: Rose Valley Council voted unanimously to rezone a 1-acre parcel on Old Mill Lane from residential to institutional, thereby giving the same designation to all land surrounding Old Mill. Known as Marrying Meadow, a wedding venue outdoor space that couples use in connection with their receptions at the Old Mill, the land was formerly part of a 2.5-acre lot with an existing home. By the same margin, the council approved a reverse subdivision to merge four individual parcels into a 3.4-acre parcel. The land, owned by the Rose Valley Folk, includes the Old Mill, its parking lot, Old Mill Lane, and surrounding open space.
