Curtains for Pocomoke City's rest stop?

By Washington Post editors

Worcester County officials are trying to scrape together money to keep the Maryland Welcome Center on Route 13 at the Virginia line open, reports.

They say they need $57,281 to keep the second busiest welcome center in Maryland open. If the money can't be found, the building will be closed June 30, part of a statewide budget trimming effort. If the commissioners can produce the funds, the state government will provide another $50,000 for the coming year.

The Pocomoke City Welcome Center is the second-busiest in Maryland, said Commissioner Linda Busick. The facility was built in 1985 using state money procured by then-delegate Mark Pilchard with a local match, said Shirley Pilchard, his widow.
