No I don't remember it at all. Any idea what years it was in existence?

Yup. It was in the Allenwood shopping center. Great little place!

Next door to Cheers on S. Salisbury Blvd. opened in the early to mid '70s. Fairly decent small Chinese restaurant, the first to feature a Pupu tray assortment of appetizers in Salisbury. The owner/mgr had the distinction of being killed and nearly decapitated by one of his kitchen staff. It took a long time to figure out exactly what happened and who actually did the killing. Seems back then there was a severe shortage of criminal investigators who spoke Mandarin Chinese.

The other day a guy was talking about how much he liked a restaurant which according to him was located around the intersection of 50 and North Division,next to where the government Building is currently.I have no recollection whatsoever of such a place.I think he called it the Chantry House,or something like that.I recall the Aloha,but I never went there.

Jonathan,
I don't recall there ever being an indictment in the murder. I believe the murder occurred in '79 or '80. Some of the old-timers (likely now retired, say Jeff Livingston or maybe Frank Parker) at SPD could shed a little light on this. You'd have to do some digging. Anonymous at 5:58 might even confess. I used to est there quite often.

Not on SPD turf

I think Fulton Jeffers was State's Attorney at that time and he would know regardless of whose turf it was. He left office and went to work for Delmarva Power. Don't know if he's still local or not.

Go to the next Board of ed meeting and ask Fulton, there's a story there
