Wicomico County Jurors Get It Wrong Again


72 year old Donald Mariner was beaten to death in his home on Pemberton Drive last April. Police arrested Paul Tatem of the murder after DNA was found at the scene along with other evidence.

This morning a Wicomico County Jury found Paul Tatem not guilty of first and second degree murder, first and second degree attempted murder or two counts each of armed robbery .The only charge they could find him guilty of was unlawful possession of a firearm.

Mr Tatem told 2 different people he had killed someone, he was charged with unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, what vehicle you may ask??? why the victims black Ford F-150.

The unlawful possession of a firearm charge comes from...take a guess..a gun stolen from the victim. Also stolen from the home were televisions that Tatem admitted to investigators he fenced at a home in Salisbury but that someone else had given them to him and that he was just kidding about killing someone.

Our State's Attorney's Office did an amazing job on this case as well as all of the investigators that worked it. It is a travesty in my opinion that justice will not be served for Mr Mariner

My Response To A Question Sent In Regarding Schools Being Closed Tomorrow

"jOn can you please tell me why the schools are closed again tomorrow i have 3 kids and this is ridiculous i have seen the roads cleared but the schools are not,, this is getting out of hand and i am fed up with it so are my co workers what is fredrickson thinking please help. "

Let me tell you why Schools are closed tomorrow, because John Frederickson cares about you and your 3 kids. Roads are going to be icy in the morning and it would be completely irresponsible to open Schools and put both kids and parents at risks on the roads. 

Wicomico County Schools Closed Tomorrow , Worcester County schools closed Tomorrow, Somerset County Schools - Closed

Bob Culver Turns Department Heads Into Contributors On Sbynews






I needed to really inform the public yesterday regarding the misguided hate being thrown Lee Outten's way for answering questions on the spews. The truth is and I should have just put it out there to begin with, Bob Culver told Lee to stay on sbynews during all the road clearing happening and answer questions from anonymous commentors. Yes Bob Culver is now ordering department heads to sit on sbynews all day and answer questions for Joe and his 5 misfit readers.

Residents Urged to Prepare for Snow

Residents Urged to Prepare for Snow



February 25, 2015, the National Weather Service is calling for snow accumulations tonight ranging from four to eight inches for the Lower Eastern Shore. The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and Worcester County Emergency Services (WCES) urge residents to remain indoors and stay off the roads once conditions deteriorate.

The heaviest snow accumulations are expected to take place from midnight tonight into midmorning Thursday. Those who must venture out onto area roadways are warned to exercise extreme caution, as slick conditions and periods of low visibility will make driving hazardous.

WCES cautions that hypothermia can occur quickly when exposed to low temperatures. Bundle up if headed outdoors. Wear layers of lightweight clothing that can be added to or removed as needed and protect extremities by wearing gloves and hats. Be sure to protect pets from the cold as well by bringing them indoors and providing them with access to unfrozen water

Storm Preparation Actions in Place for the City of Salisbury

Salisbury - Mayor James Ireton, Jr. today announced that the City of Salisbury is preparing for the arrival of a possible 3 to 6 inches of snow overnight Wednesday into Thursday. Snowfall is expected to begin by midnight, and to be at its heaviest during the early morning hours. Residents are cautioned to drive safely and to be aware of roadway icing.

Deputy Director of Public Works, Amanda Pollack, has reported that City roads crews will report for work at midnight, and will begin salting and plowing as conditions warrant. The City has nine (9) trucks ready and equipped with plows and salt bodies. Plowing of residential streets will occur if snow accumulation exceeds FOUR (4) INCHES or more. In such case, the City’s 7 snow emergency routes will be the first streets to be plowed. Motorists are reminded to NOT PARK along snow emergency routes, and private plow contractors are reminded to not push snow into public roads.

If you have to be on the roads during the upcoming snow event, it is important to realize that the most slippery surfaces often do not appear as hazardous as they actually are. Bridges, overpasses and intersections are common areas where the pavement freezes faster than on ordinary roadways. At temperatures below 20 degrees Fahrenheit salt becomes ineffective at melting ice.

Additionally, citizens are reminded that all property owners adjacent to any street within City limits are responsible for the removal of snow from their sidewalks. The snow must be removed for the entire length of the property for a width of four (4) feet. The removal must take place within six (6) hours after the snow has stopped falling. If snowfall ends between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., then snow removal must occur before 2 p.m. The purpose of this ordinance is to provide the ability for our residents and visitors to move freely and safely throughout the City. The property owner is liable for any accidents which may occur as a result of un-cleared sidewalks. Please help us make the City of Salisbury safe during severe weather conditions.

Emergency contact information for Salisbury Public Works during business hours from 8:00 to 4:30 is 410-548-3177. For service calls after hours please contact the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165.

IRVING JONES III SENTENCED TO 35 YEARS IN PRISON FOR POSSESSING FENTANYL WITH THE INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE

PRESS RELEASE

IRVING JONES III SENTENCED TO 35 YEARS IN PRISON FOR POSSESSING FENTANYL WITH THE INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE



On January 7, 2015, Irving Henderson Jones III, age 31, of Salisbury, Maryland was convicted by a Wicomico County jury of possessing fentanyl, xanax, and marijuana with the intent to distribute the drugs. 

The charges against Jones arose out of his actions, June 19, 2014, when a car he was riding in was stopped for running a stop sign. The Maryland State Police noticed a suspicious interaction between the front seat passenger and Mr. Jones.  The facts at trial revealed Jones had $1,004.00 in his pocket and was seated next to a digital scale.  Various bags of fentanyl, xanax, and marijuana were found in the Defendant’s  possession.

On February 20, 2015, Jones was sentenced as a subsequent offender, having been previously convicted of possessing heroin for distribution in 2010. He was sentenced as a second time offender to a total of 35 years of incarceration--the first 10 years to be served without the possibility of parole. (Note: the Court did not suspend any portion of the Defendant’s sentence).

Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello commended the Maryland State Police and the Salisbury Police Department for working in tandem to secure this conviction of a repeat narcotics dealer.   The State’s Attorney’s Office believes this to be an important conviction.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Fentanyl is 80-100 times more potent than morphine and is roughly 15-20 times more potent than heroin.  The combination of fentanyl and heroin has been a factor in many overdose deaths in Maryland and throughout the country.  Mr. Maciarello also thanked the citizens of Wicomico County and Safe Streets Prosecutor, Richard J. Brueckner Jr., who prosecuted this case. 

                For more information or for an interview please call the Office of the State’s Attorney at (410) 548-4880 or go to www.wicomicosao.com.

Lee Outten Is A Stand Up Guy


I want to state on the record here and now, that Lee Outten is a stand up guy and I will not let him get lumped into the Culver/Albero nonsense. Lee has a job to do regardless of who Is running the County . Maybe ask yourself who is friends with Albero that may possibly instruct a personnel member to answer questions on his blog? you are smart people figure it out, but leave Lee out of comments because this isn't about him

Nursing Home Ratings Dropping..Big Shocker


The recent report that nursing home ratings have dropped around the country comes as zero surprise to people who have had to stay in them or visit people in them. You have a very small number of people who truly care about the elderly in their charge, while the rest just look forward to clocking out. Aides that will let patients sit unclean because it's close to their time to get off and figure the next shift can have the pleasure. Belongings of loved ones that disappear, patients that are verbally abused, and in some case physically. Shove them into bed, push them into the wheelchair if you think this doesn't happen you are delusional.

Nursing homes are a terrible place to send your loved ones. I understand in some circumstances it cannot be helped but if you want your loved one to be happy find a way to let them stay home with family in their last days.
