Schwartz Center Looking for Community Support

DOVER, Del.- The Schwartz Center for the Arts in Dover is in need of community support, according to Executive Director Sydney Arzt. She says the center is unsure if it will receive two donations it relies on every year.

Two of the Schwartz Center's big donors, Delaware State University and Wesley College, have yet to come through with funding they generally contribute to the center. Arzt said she received notice that there would be no more contributions, and that no one has called her to tell her otherwise.

She says because the notice was given so late, the non-profit has missed important deadlines for grant writing and other ways of raising money.

Carlos Holmes, a DSU spokesman, said the stories do not exactly line up.

"At this point, no decision has been made on the funding," he told WBOC. It is all he would say, and it is not clear if and when the board of trustees will make the decision.

Wesley College did not return phone calls for comment Wednesday.

Dover Mayor Robin Christiansen said the Schwartz Center is important to the local economy and that he hopes the colleges come through with the funding.

DSU and Wesley jointly own the building and will be leasing it to the Schwartz Center for the Arts.

Questions remain about whether DSU and Wesley College would let the Schwartz Center fend without their donations, because the non-profit operates in a building they own.

    The Salisbury Zoo Continues with Storm Clean Up

    The Salisbury Zoo is reaching new heights when it comes to snow clean up. After this past weekend's storm, the zoo saw damage to various exhibits and walk ways.

    Crews were up in the sky and down on the ground clearing bamboo, pine tree limbs, and other debris. This was the first day the zoo was back opened to the public after being closed since Saturday.
