Record Observer - - Opinion -

Queen­stown will get a new Post Of­fice build­ing. That was the an­nounce­ment Wed­nes­day from Con­gress­man Rogers C.B. Mor­ton’s of­fice. The con­gress­man and in­ter­ested cit­i­zens have worked on get­ting a new post of­fice for three years.

An op­tion has been ob­tained on the va­cant lot on Town Square and Del Rhodes Av­enue, di­rectly across from the present post of­fice.

Bids will be is­sued shortly for a 2,000-square-foot build­ing with room in the rear for trucks and other ve­hi­cles. It will be built by pri­vate con­trac­tors and leased to the gov­ern­ment.

•• • Re­cently ap­pointed to a seven-mem­ber com­mit­tee to re­view and re­vise the pub­lic school laws of the state was Queen Anne’s County Su­per­in­ten­dent of Schools Dr. Harry C. Rhodes.

The com­mit­tee, formed by the Gen­eral Assem­bly of Mary­land, will pre­pare a pre­lim­i­nary re­port for the leg­is­la­ture in Jan­uar y 1967.

In ask­ing Dr. Rhodes to serve on the com­mit­tee, Gov. J. Mil­lard Tawes an­nounced that Dr. David W. Zimmerman, the deputy state su­per­in­ten­dent of schools, would be the chairman. •• • Queen Anne’s County’s first Lutheran Church, the Galilee Evan­gel­i­cal Lutheran Church of Stevensville, held a ground­break­ing cer­e­mony on Sun­day evening at the con­struc­tion site in Har­bor View.

Most of the money raised so far has been through the ef­forts of the Women’s Guild, who last year raised $2,100 through bake sales, rum­mage sales, and other projects.

The Har­bor View ground was pur­chased about a year ago and con­struc­tion is planned to be­gin in about two weeks with a hope­d­for com­ple­tion date around Christ­mas.
