••• Some 23 tons of cow feed was dumped on the ground at Price Tues­day in a truck­car ac­ci­dent that sent two men to the hos­pi­tal. State Po­lice said the truck started to pass a car in the in­ter­sec­tion and the car made a left­hand turn. The truck driver sw­erved, struck the side of the car and went into the ditch. Walter J. Mar­lin of Yardville, N.J., the truck driver, was treated and re­leased for a slight in­jury while Ben­jamin Kos­mela of Bloom­field, N.J., the other driver, was kept in the hos­pi­tal be­cause of a heart con­di­tion — he was not re­ported badly in­jured.

••• The break­wa­ter pro­ject long sought af­ter by prop­erty and boat own­ers in the Kent Narrows has at least reached the sur­vey stage as the County Com­mis­sion­ers were ad­vised on Tues­day by the U.S. Army Corps of En­gi­neers.

Her­bert H. Linthicum in­formed the com­mis­sion­ers that Congress has au­tho­rized a $23,000, 22- month sur­vey at the Kent Narrows to de­ter­mine the need and fea­si­bil­ity of a stone jetty to ex­tend ap­prox­i­mately 1,000 to 1,500 feet from the shore line at the Kent Is­land Yacht Club to­ward Wells Cove.

The pur­pose of the jetty is to act as a break­wa­ter pro­tec­tion for boat and prop­erty own­ers in the Narrows when south and south­west winds whip up the Eastern Bay.

Bar­bara A Mikul­ski, a Demo­crat, in the Novem­ber 1992 elec­tion.

••• While fam­ily and friends at­tended the funeral of the 14-year-old Queenstown boy killed Satur­day in a hit and run ac­ci­dent, a District Court judge re­fused to lower the bail of the man ac­cused of his death Fri­day in Queen Anne’s County District Court.

Mark Lovette, 18, of Cen­tre­ville, was charged with homi­cide with mo­tor ve­hi­cle while in­tox­i­cated, man­slaugh­ter by auto, false state­ment to an of­fi­cer, and var­i­ous traf­fic vi­o­la­tions in­clud­ing driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated and leav­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent. He can face more than 15 years and $8,000 in fines. His bail is set at $20,000. Jer­maine Burke was walk­ing along Ceme­tery Road in Gra­sonville with a friend when he was struck.

••• County Com­mis­sion­ers signed a $1.8 mil­lion con­tract for Willow Con­struc­tion Inc. to build a new county of­fice build­ing to re­place the old jail­house at Broad­way and Lib­erty Street. It is ex­pected to be com­pleted within a year.
