50 YEARS AGO

Record Observer - - Opinion -

The Kent Is­land Lions Club held their an­nual in­stal­la­tion of of­fi­cers and Ladies Night Fri­day at the Kent Is­land Yacht Club.

After din­ner, James B. Carter, past Deputy Dis­trict Gover­nor, in­stalled the new of­fi­cers for the 1967-68 year. They are: Charles Zakar­ian, President; Wil­liam J. Thomp­son, First Vi­cePres­i­dent; Rland Heb­den, Sec­ond Vice-President; Frank Sch­maltz, Third Vice-President; Wil­burt Marsheck, Sec­re­tary; Fred Paul, Trea­surer; Robert Hor­ney, Lion Tamer; and Ron­ald W. Hill, Tail Twister. The new direc­tors are John Gaeng, James Phillips, Hor­ton Weeks and Clarence Young.

••• The Queen Anne’s County Board of Zon­ing Ap­peals held two open hear­ings on Tues­day night with one un­op­posed and the other protested by num­ber of ci­ti­zens, but no de­ci­sion was made in ei­ther case.

Bit­torf Ford Inc. re­quested a con­di­tional use for a com­mer­cial air­port at Cas­tle Ma­rina, and Mrs. Beatrice M. Jones asked for per­mis­sion to op­er­ate a ce­ram­ics stu­dio in a build­ing on her prop­erty on Crab Al­ley Bay. Both ap­pli­ca­tions con­cern Kent Is­land.

••• The air was cleared and mem­o­ries were re­freshed on Tues­day af­ter­noon when the Queen Anne’s County Free Libary Board of Trustees met with the County Com­mis­sion­ers to dis­cuss the plans for a new li­brar y build­ing.

The meet­ing was the re­sult of a flare-up that oc­curred in the com­m­mis­sion­ers’ of­fice two weeks ago when they read the no­tice in the Record Ob­server that con­struc­tion bids for a new county li­brary would be re­ceived for open­ing on June 22.

The le­gal no­tice caused a dis­cus­sion to be­gin in the com­mis­sion­ers’ of­fice dur­ing which no one could re­mem­ber hav­ing au­tho­rized the pro­posed $110,000 county con­tri­bu­tion to the $300,000 build­ing, or ap­prov­ing of any plans.

••• As the tem­per­a­tures con­tinue to climb, so does the traf­fic us­ing the two-lane Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Bridge and the tie-ups on both sides grow longer and longer each week­end.
