  • Wicomico Superintendent of Schools Evelyn B. Holman said the suspension and expulsion rate in county schools is declining. She said the majority of suspensions now are just one day, but five-day suspensions can still be handed down for fighting and using abusive language toward instructors. Holman said today’s students “are much more serious” than their predecessors and that has improved overall conduct.
  • The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Tackle visited the Port of Salisbury Marina so Coast Guard and local officials could formulate ice-breaking plans for the coming winter. The Tackle is home-ported in Crisfield and the Wicomico River is the busiest waterway for which it has responsibility. Meeting with the Tackle crew were county General Services Director Marvin Long, Tourism Director Lew Carman, Emergency Management Director Jim Brown and Capt. Tim Bailey of Maritrans Corp., who has navigated the river for the past 25 years.
  • A committee to pursue the preservation of an 87-year-old schooner and have it based in Salisbury has been appointed by Mayor W. Paul Martin Jr. The group will seek to acquire the Victory Chimes, built in Bethel in 1900 and currently tied up at the Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. The committee members are county Economic Developer Robert L. Kiley, Greater Salisbury Committee Director Robert W. Cook, businessman William J. Ahtes, bank president Hugh W. Mohler, Chamber of Commerce Director William E. Postles, lawyer Edward G. Banks and Avery W. Hall President Gordon H. Gladden.
  • Owners of the WLVW radio station have a contract to purchase radio stations WSBY and WQHQ and are now awaiting Federal Communications Commission approval to complete the deal. According to Thomas Schattenfield of HVS Partners/Salisbury, WLVW’s owner, the group is seeking to buy seven stations in all from Wilson Broadcasting Corp. Schattenfield said that – if the deal goes through – HVS Partners will have to sell WLVW to comply with FCC ownership restrictions and keep WQHQ because it has a larger broadcast footprint.
