Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver has accepted an offer from Governor Larry Hogan to receive a tractor trailer load of food kits containing more than 25,000 nutritiously balanced meals

In partnership with the Maryland Department of General Services, the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives, and the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver has accepted an offer from Governor Larry Hogan to receive a tractor trailer load of food kits containing more than 25,000 nutritiously balanced meals.

In anticipation of these food kits, Executive Culver has coordinated a warehouse for delivery, forklifts, and pallet jacks and has reached out to those organizations who could utilize the food kits. The Executive also decided to share this opportunity with both Somerset and Worcester Counties. The recipients in these three counties will include various nonprofit organizations, homeless shelters, aged residents, and those less fortunate.

We are very grateful to Governor Hogan for providing Wicomico County with the opportunity to help feed the disadvantaged and provide benefit to the tri-county area.

  1. I watched a city street worker yesterday hand spraying weeds with Roundup from a tractor. He was hauling around 25 gallons of the stuff (it was a translucent container about the size of a 55 gallon drum that was about half full). He rode the tractor down the street near the curb, if he saw grass sprouting through the sidewalk he would spray it -with a hand nozzle from the seat of the tractor. I did some rough calculations; based on a 1/8 diameter stream of material sprayed for two seconds from a distance of six feet, the amount of Roundup sprayed on each plant would be 2.5 oz. That means he was spraying a gallon on every 50 incidents of grass or weed sprouting through the sidewalk. What is sad is an atomized drop of the stuff would kill the weed. Since it was on the sidewalk, the rest is going to wash off into the gutter during today”s rain and into the sewer to be returned to a waterway somewhere. cheap
