Today In Salisbury's History: Tuesday, Jan. 12, 1993

Tuesday, Jan. 12, 1993 --

  • A proposal to pick up trash just one day each week in Salisbury was formally rejected Monday night after several hours of public input. Speakers at a City Council meeting ranged from those who resented having their services reduced to those who insisted less frequent pickups were the right move because recycling would inevitably occur. City administrative officials were hoping the ordinance would pass to prevent further overtime expenses in the city’s Public Works Department.
  • Funeral services were held in Delmar for Richard E. Cullen, who died Saturday after a battle with cancer. Cullen headed the prominent Cullen, Clark, Insley and Hanson law firm in Salisbury and previously served as attorney for Wicomico County, the towns of Delmar, Mardela Springs and Hebron, and was a member of the Wicomico Liquor Control Board. He practiced law for 54 years.
  • The Wicomico County Board of Education will cut $1.3 million from its current budget to address Social Security costs. Board President Dr. William J. Nagel said no furloughs or layoffs will be required, thanks to some potential budget savings and help from the WIcomico County Council. The budget will have to be revised before the end of the fiscal year, June 30.
  • Even though it’s purely a state matter, Congressman Wayne T. Gilchrest told a gathering of the Delmarva Poultry Industry on Tuesday that he will fight a proposal to merge Maryland’s Agriculture and Natural Resources departments. “It would not be a good move,” said Gilchrest, a Republican. “Agriculture is a complex industry.”
  • As the 1993 General Assembly convenes in Annapolis, state Sen. J. Lowell Stolzfus said he will back fellow conservative lawmakers hoping to derail the newly introduced Keno lottery game across the state. Lottery officials said the game will generate up to $50 million for the state’s coffers; the game has a strong proponent in Gov. William Donald Schaefer. Keno has been criticized by opponents as merely a ploy to take money from the working poor.
