Patrick McGlinchey heard “great things” about Derrick Hayward before the young linebacker/defensive end ever set foot in the Wicomico weight room as a freshman.  Just minutes into the first meeting between player and coach, McGlinchey could sense that reports of Hayward's potential were not exaggerated. “I could tell he was going to be a great athlete with his work ethic in the weight room,” said McGlinchey, who has served as a varsity assistant and JV head coach at Wicomico.

Should Salisbury and Wicomico County merge? It is being discussed on the Eastern Shore. In recent years several cities have re-chartered themselves to become one with their surrounding counties. There is no longer an Athens, Ga., or Butte, Mont., government. In their place are Athens-Clarke County and Butte-Silver Bow County. Clarke is more populous ** than Wicomico (87,594 to 74,339), and Silver Bow is much less (33,941).The advantages of city-county mergers apply to all sizes.

SALISBURY -- Merging the governments of Salisbury, which is the Eastern Shore's largest town and has independently governed itself 263 years, and surrounding Wicomico County is likely to receive serious consideration beginning this month.Such a merger, which is subject to voters' approval and almost certainly faces months of debate and analysis, could mean that Maryland's 11th largest town would abandon its charter.If that were to happen, Salisbury, with a population of 21,000, would become the state's largest municipality to voluntarily give up its incorporation since Ellicott City in Howard County repealed its charter for financial reasons during the Depression.

Edmondson guard Darius Walker learned from something that happened earlier this season, and that lesson helped the Red Storm win its first state title Saturday night. Walker snaked through traffic and made a driving left-handed bank shot as time expired to give No. 5 Edmondson a 56-54 victory over Wicomico in the Class 2A state title game at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center, the school's first championship in basketball. Fresh in Walker's mind was his choice at the end of regulation in the Baltimore City title game against No. 1 Dunbar last month.

The Eastern Shore's civil rights history is not a happy one. From the lynchings of the 1930s to the Cambridge riots of the 1960s, the Shore has struggled with race relations. Much of that is in the past - although perhaps not entirely. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, civil rights groups used federal Voting Rights Act lawsuits (or in some cases, the threat of them) to convince towns and counties with large black populations to create voting districts with majority-minority populations.

The No. 10 Arundel boys basketball team knew the Class 4A East regional final at North Point was going to be a tough, physical game and it was. Both teams had a player foul out in a game that featured 68 fouls, but the one-two scoring combination of Matt Bonds (26 points) and Anthony Williams (21) was too much for the Wildcats, who fell, 89-64, Friday night. "Their pressure tired our guys out," Arundel coach Jeff Starr said. "We eventually broke the press, but our shots weren't falling.

("O'Malley ties to Perdue lawyer queried"). To them, I say, "And your problem is what?" From our perspective, we are deeply appreciative that we have a governor who understands from whence our life-blood flows and is willing to step up and fight hard to help us maintain the special place we call home.

As the state Board of Public Works approved $264 million for school construction Wednesday, two counties asked to delay new buildings because they aren't certain they can come up with the money to finish or operate them — an unprecedented sign, officials said, of the continuing financial challenges confronting local governments. "We've never dealt with anything like this before, where we've come to this sort of crisis point," David G. Lever, director of the state's Public School Construction Program, said of the requests by Charles and Wicomico counties.
