ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Dr. John LaFerla is formally filing his candidacy for the Democratic primary next year to run in Maryland's 1st District congressional race.

LaFerla says he plans to file in Annapolis on Wednesday.

LaFerla barely lost the last primary for the 1st District to Wendy Rosen, who dropped out abruptly in 2012 after the state Democratic Party found out she had voted in Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008.


The Sussex County libraries are about to get a financial windfall.

The money is coming from the county’s budget surplus with the independent libraries in Laurel and Seaford getting grants of $60-thousand.

Nine other communities are getting smaller amounts.

Wendy Roberts, director of the Laurel Public Library, told the Salisbury Daily Times that she was tickled to death at the news.

She said the first priority would be to fix a leaky roof among other things.
