SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - Authorities are identifying a man killed in an apparent murder-suicide as a former Salisbury University student.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis says the man killed Tuesday by the shooter was Charles Abbott of Hebron. Authorities are not identifying a female university student wounded in the shooting or the male shooter, who turned the gun on himself and died. Investigators believe the shooting was an incident of domestic violence.

ADELPHI, Md. (AP) - The Department of Defense has awarded a $250 million contract to University of Maryland University College.

UMUC announced Monday that the contract calls for offering exclusive undergraduate and graduate instruction at military installations across Europe.

The contract, which is renewed annually, extends through the 2022-2023 academic year.

UMUC will offer its MBA program for the first time in the European Command. The university also will partner with two other institutions in the University System of Maryland for first-time overseas programs.

GreatGrow Maryland is teaming up with Salisbury University to test whether its soil additive can increase crop yields while reducing nutrients that pollute the Chesapeake Bay.

It has taken ten years to fine tune the ingredients and the company only has been able to supply limited quantities to growers.

The company says its mixture of microbes and other naturally occurring materials can boost yields by as much as 50 percent.

Peninsula Regional Medical Center has joined Salisbury University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore to bring a medical school to the Delmarva peninsula.

PRMC CEO and President Dr. Peggy Naleppa said that there was a shortage of physicians on the Shore.

WBOC reports that the plan would allow patients to get healthcare from physicians trained here rather than going to Baltimore.

Salisbury University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach called the partnership a good fit.     

In the fall of next year Salisbury University students studying computer science, mathematics or information systems could be going to Estonia to finish their bachelor’s degree and complete a master’s degree.

Karen Olmstead, dean of SU School of Science and Technology told the Salisbury Daily Times that Baltic nation is known as an international leader in cyber security and was hit with a large cyber attack five years ago.

The school hopes to send four to eight students under the program each year.

Dr. Diane Allen, provost and senior vice president of academic affairs, says she has not heard President Janet Dudley Eshbach say she is terminating funding for Delmarva Public Radio.

Dr. Allen says that the Salisbury University Foundation is weighing options for the stations and no decision has been made.

But in a statement released by the media relations department she added that the station cannot expect the University to “indefinitely provide an unlimited subsidy.”

The statement notes that Universities are facing difficult choices in allocating resources.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports this morning that the future of one Delmarva Public Radio’s signals -- WSDL -- is in doubt.

Jason Curtin, interim executive director of the Salisbury University Foundation, told the paper that there was the possibility of major changes at the NPR News/ Talk signal.

He noted that there are a number of news/talk formats on Delmarva.

Meanwhile he said that the classical music station WSCL is not a format provided by anyone else in area.

It is finally going to come to pass.

At 11 am this morning the City of Salisbury will hold the groundbreaking ceremony for a change on Bateman Street.

Last week the City Council unanimously approved plans to make Bateman Street one-way for westbound traffic between South Division and Wayne streets.

Mayor Jim Ireton praised the work and generosity of Salisbury University as well as the Salisbury Public Works Department.

Salisbury University contributed $180-thousand to the $280-thousand cost of the initiative in partnership with the City of Salisbury.
