50 YEARS AGO
A young dairyman near Roesville has been named Outstanding Young Farmer in Queen Anne’s County by the County Jaycees. This is the first year the civic group has conducted the project in conjunction with the national Jaycee organization.
William J. Kimbles IV, 22, who is a past president of the Queen Anne’s Holstein Association, and now serving as a director, was presented a certificate by Jaycee President David Clark and will now compete for the state title at a meeting to be held Jan. 28 in the Indian Spring Country Club at Kensington.
Besides his own dairy herd of 20 Holsteins, William operates several other farms, along with other dairy herds, with his fther and uncle in the area.
••• The Town Commissioners of Sudlersvile have been notified by Representative Rogers Morton that a Federal Water Pollution Control grant of $26,100 has been approved.
The money will be used as part of costs of constructing a $270,000 waste stabilization lagoon with outfall sewer connections and a pump out station.
Rep. Morton, when alerted of the grant, personally telephones Lemuel H. Benton, president of the Sudlersville Town Commissioners, to relay the news.
… Total cost of the entire project has been estimated at $650,000 by engineers.

House Bill 56, introduced on Jan. 24, requests an expense allowance for the State’s Attorney of Queen Anne’s County. A bill pasted last year authorizing a raise for this office, inadvertently left out the paragraph dealing with the expense allowance which actually reduced the annual stipend.
Before last year, the salary for Queen Anne’s County State’s Attorney was $2,400 with a special fund allowance of $2,000 for making investigations
