LOCAL ECONOMISTS UPBEAT

Salisbury, MD – Economists on the Lower Shore are generally upbeat about business on the Lower Shore for the coming year. Panelists offered their opinions yesterday at the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce gathering. Organizer Memo Diriker predicts the local economy will be brighter than the national picture later this year. And he says one sign of strength is the continued growth of the Route 13 shopping corridor North of Salisbury.
