The Aberdeen Room always enjoys getting assistance with extensive record keeping by donors who have been very active in civic affairs in the Aberdeen area. At times we receive help from those who have worked for city government and are very knowledgeable about their work. We were very fortunate to have a visit by retired First Sgt. James Testerman from the Aberdeen Police Department. He brought with him, as a donation, a binder containing pictures and information about the Aberdeen Police Department, from which he had retired after 39 years and 28 days.

Letter to The Record | May 3, 2012
Editor: As a Perryville Town resident of over 30 years, I could not be more pleased with the leadership provided by Mayor Jim Eberhardt. Through his tenure the town finances are in fine shape, the infrastructure especially water and waste water are strategically and structurally sound and the staff employed in the town office and department of public works is extremely competent operating within a service mentality. On the occasions that I've had to inquire regarding town business, I have always been treated courteously and received correct information or prompt attention.

But after 16 years of service with the Ocean City Police Department, Buddy retired last month to a farm in Wicomico County, the department said yesterday. He had been suffering from arthritis and hadn't been used much toward the end of his career, a police spokesman said.
