The Perryville town commissioners do their town a service by standing firm on the issue of whether the town will end up being financially responsible for a road that becomes a major truck access route for the Perry Point VA Medical Center. The federal veterans installation has been in place at Perry Point for decades, and truck access has long been a problem. As the years go by, trucks get bigger, but the space under the railroad bridges in Perryville doesn't grow. It's trucks that bring in the substantial loads of supplies needed at Perry Point, and for a number of years getting trucks under bridges and onto the facility has been a growing problem.

The state has awarded a $125,000 grant to the Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway to complete the final restoration of the Rodgers Tavern in Perryville, a 315-year-old landmark that played a role in the nation's early history. The tavern will serve as a modern-day anchor for downtown Perryville revitalization and provide public access to the water and the town in Cecil County. The grant will pay for interior and exterior repairs. Col. John Rodgers owned the tavern, which was frequented by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Because of its location on a vital transportation corridor, the tavern also played a role during the War of 1812 and the Civil War before falling into disrepair.

Ikea has expanded the solar energy system at its Perryville distribution center, making it by far the largest rooftop array in the state. The home furnishings retailer said Tuesday it began installing additional solar panels last fall to double the existing system's size. The 1.7 million-square-foot warehouse, built in 2002, employs about 550 workers and distributes inventory to many Ikea stores. The 4.9 megawatt energy system, made up of nearly 26,000 panels, now generates more than 6 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year, the equivalent of eliminating the emissions of 896 cars or powering 591 homes annually.

More than 1,200 passengers on five different Amtrak trains traveling between Wilmington and Perryville were delayed for hours or forced to transfer trains on Monday night after a line of thunderstorms damaged the railroad's signaling system, according to an Amtrak spokesman.

EDITORIAL FROM THE RECORD | July 31, 2013
Situated at a geographic nexus, Port Deposit has seen its fortunes rise and fall and rise again over its 200 years as a town, largely thanks to its location. Like many river towns along the Susquehanna, it was established to deal with waterborne transit of cargo and hugs a relatively narrow section of riverbank. Unlike other riverway stations, it is the last of the so called ports of deposit along the part of the Susquehanna that has a reliable current. Geologically, the river from Port Deposit up is shallow, but at Port Deposit and extending down to Perryville, it is deep enough to accommodate even ocean-going vessels.
