City Works to Help Former Union Railroad Station Project Become Reality

City Works to Help Former Union Railroad Station Project Become Reality


Salisbury - Mayor James Ireton, Jr. announced today that the City has completed curbing and sidewalk installation along Wilson and W. Railroad Streets as part of a public/private partnership with the Knorr Brothers to bring a farmers’ market to the former Union Railroad Station.


Completed in 1914, Union Station served travelers for over 40 years, until the Pennsylvania Railroad discontinued passenger service in 1958.  During its heyday, the station is said to have seen traffic in the hundreds—sometimes thousands of people per day.  Due to its significance as a transportation landmark of the Delmarva Peninsula, the station has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.


In the years since, the station has changed hands several times; at turns serving various commercial purposes, or sitting in disuse.  Its current owners, the Knorr Brothers, are well-known, local restaurateurs whose successes include Boonies, Sobo’s, Evolution Craft Brewing, and, perhaps most famously, the beloved Red Roost.


Today, the Mayor announced that with the installation of curbing and sidewalks finished, the City is nearing completion of physical upgrades meant to ready the streets around the old Union Station for new commercial traffic.  Also being completed this week is removal of an old cast iron water main, which will be replaced with a new water service.


“When we were approached by John and Tom Knorr about partnering to bring new business to the heart of the City, my question was: what can the City do to help?” said the Mayor.  “We are in the process of contracting to install a new underground electric service which will also allow us to install three new LED streetlights.  With the completion of the concrete and underground utilities, Wilson and West Railroad Streets will be milled and paved from Route 13 to Elizabeth Street, providing smooth road surface and additional parking for patrons.  This collaboration is an example of what can happen when government and business work together.  I look forward to seeing this farmers’ market open its doors in spring of 2016.”

Pocomoke Facing A 75 Thousand Dollar A Day Fine

remember this article here in regards to the MDE coming down on Pocomoke for illegal dumping? Something that McDirtbag personally told me was no big deal. Well guess what Pocomoke has done nothing to fix the issues and has a very limited window to fix the problem or be fined 75 thousand dollars a day. Nice job Bruce/Russ/Ernie/Trotter, you sure as hell don't care about Pocomoke or it's taxpaying citizens

Maryland Department Of The Environment Email To Me Regarding Pocomoke Investigation

In response to your inquiry about possible dumping in Pocomoke City:

On December 5, 2013, the Maryland Department of the Environment issued a Site Complaint to Pocomoke City alleging violation of Maryland laws and regulations for solid waste management and sewage sludge utilization by operating an open dump, as defined under State law, at the City's wastewater treatment plant. Inspectors from the Department of the Environment observed piles of soil containing sewage sludge, concrete, asphalt and solid waste deposited at the plant. The Department has also found the City to be out of compliance with regulations for nontidal wetlands. The Department ordered the City to: stop the acceptance and disposal of solid waste at the property; remove all wastes to a permitted solid waste acceptance facility; and submit a cleanup plan to the Department by January 31, 2014. This is an open and active case, subject to possible enforcement actions that could result in the assessment of civil or administrative penalties.

On October 5, 2015, Jacqueline N. Sheppard, age 40, of Salisbury, Maryland was convicted by a Wicomico County jury of Possession of a Large Amount of Heroin, Importation of Heroin into the State of Maryland, two counts of Possession with the Intent to Distribute Heroin, two counts of Possession of Heroin, Drug Trafficking, Wear/Carry a Firearm During the Commission of a Drug Trafficking Crime, Wear/ Carry and Transport a Handgun in a Vehicle, Illegal Possession of a Regulated Firearm, Possession of a Rifle by a Disqualified Person, and three counts of Possession of Paraphernalia.

The charges against Sheppard arose out of a traffic stop on June 9, 2015, by the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force and several assisting law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement officers followed a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta occupied by 2 individuals as it traveled from Delaware into the State of Maryland.  Once in Wicomico County, Maryland, officers effectuated a traffic stop on the vehicle and were able to identify Sheppard as the driver.  Based on statements made at the traffic stop and a positive K-9 alert on the vehicle, a search was conducted on the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta.  The search resulted in the recovery of 201 grams of heroin and a Davis Industries P-380 semi-automatic handgun with a magazine containing two live rounds of live ammunition.  Police located the 209 grams of heroin in a shoe box on the front passenger floor board.  The handgun was located in the center console next to Sheppard’s purse.

A subsequent Search and Seizure Warrant was executed on Sheppard’s home located at 223 New York Avenue, Salisbury, Maryland.  Upon execution of the warrant, members of the Task Force located a “Central Machinery” kilogram press with trace amounts of heroin, a digital scale with trace amounts of heroin, paraphernalia and a POF USA Rifle with a magazine and ten live rounds of ammunition.  The kilogram press was located in a detached garage located behind the home.  The rifle was located in the master bedroom under the bed.

Sheppard has prior convictions on her record which prohibited her from possessing a handgun or rifle on June 9, 2015.

The facts at trial revealed that Sheppard and another individual had traveled to New Jersey to buy the heroin.  The jury was able to conclude that based on the quantity and packaging of the heroin, when combined with the handgun, scale, kilogram press and paraphernalia, that Sheppard possessed the heroin for distribution.

Sheppard awaits sentencing as a subsequent offender as Sheppard was convicted in 2001 in two separate cases of Possession of a Narcotic.

Wicomico County State’s Attorney Matthew Maciarello commended the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force, the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit, the Maryland State Police Apprehension Team and the Drug Enforcement Administration for their work in this investigation and their assistance with this prosecution.  

Maciarello also thanks the citizens of Wicomico County and Senior State’s Attorney, Patrizia J. Coletta, who prosecuted the case.  

For more information please call the office of the State’s Attorney at (410) 548-4880.

Pocomoke Council Meeting Tonight At 7



Kidnapping / First Degree Assault

On Sunday, October 4, 2015 the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Powellville Road, Powelville, MD for a 911 call from the victim at that location indicating her ex-boyfriend had broken in and was taking her. Upon Deputies arrival they discovered the door had been forced open.  Deputies cleared the residence and found no one to be there.  Deputies found an open Glock Handgun Box in the victim’s bedroom and .45 ammunition in the floor but the firearm was missing.  The victim’s cell phone wallet and vehicle were all at the residence.  Deputies and investigators interviewed family members and learned the ex-boyfriend was identified as Phillip James Timmons.  Search of police records indicated the two had a history of domestic assaults in which Timmons was the aggressor.  The victim had also applied for and a protective order had been issued prohibiting Timmons from having contact with the victim. 

The Wicomico Bureau of Investigation was contacted and assumed the case.  Based on the afore mentioned information a BOLO was released to the surrounding states to attempt to locate the victim, suspect Timmons and his vehicle, a 2001 Black Dodge Dakota.  While gathering information and conducting the investigation, Investigators were informed the suspect vehicle, suspect and victim were located by the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Police (CBBTP).  The suspect was in custody and the victim was ok.  According to CTAP the suspect attempted to cross the bridge with two surfboards in the back of his truck.  Due to wind restrictions the surf boards were removed and transported by Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Authority Road Crew in a work van.  Once on the opposite side of the tunnel and while unloading the surf boards, Flemming jumped into the driver seat of the truck and drove towards a police car.  While doing this Timmons jumped into the bed of the truck, and attempted to unlock the door through a broken car window.  When Flemming found the CBBTP officer she exited the vehicle and ran towards him announcing she had been kidnapped and Timmons was armed.  Officers with CBBTP gave verbal commands to Timmons and a brief struggle ensued before he was taken into custody.  Timmons was found to be in possession of a loaded Glock .45 caliber handgun. 

Investigators responded to the CBBTP and interviewed Timmons.  At the conclusion of the interview Timmons remained in the custody of CBBTP where he will be taken before a Virginia Magistrate on kidnapping, abduction and firearm related charges.  The Maryland warrant is extraditable and has been lodged as a detainer.

Supporters Of Kelvin Sewell Being Targeted In Pocomoke

It has come to my attention that one of the vocal supporters in Pocomoke of Chief Kelvin Sewell has found tires flattened and animals killed in their yard. This is the mentality of the bad groups in the town. How dare you question what we want, you will pay. Let me be clear I find out who you are and I will be sure to do a nice post about you so people can see what a piece of garbage looks like. Don't be afraid of these people, show them you will not be bullied into being quiet.

1 Picture That Explains It All For Pocomoke Residents

The new Chief? Hardin. The reason I say that is because he is wearing Captain stripes and not Chief stripes like Arnold Downing beside him. I guess Chief Crofoot and Morrison weren't gonna share the stripes. Take out a couple of people in this picture and every other one of these people posing with Hardin played a large role in the illegal firing of Chief Sewell and the retaliation against Frank Savage. Look at that smug little thing in the middle thinking he has won something, and the dorky one on the end left McDirtbag. The Time will be coming for many of these people when the lawsuit plays out for the pubic so tick tock gentlemen.

Worcester County Schools Closed

Somerset County Public Schools will b

Due to the combination of wind, rain and tides, Somerset County Public Schools will be canceled on Friday, October 2. All twelve-month and ten-month custodians and employees should report to work on time.

The decision was made because of concerns with transporting our students and having our staff traveling in what could be unsafe conditions.

I received a lot of questions about canceling due to being in a state of emergency. That does not mean there will be a delay or closure of any kind. Governor Hogan enacted the state of emergency so storm prep could begin.

"Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency, largely a proactive measure that allows him to move assets and equipment into position to react to the storm. Our state is taking every precaution and I urge Marylanders to do the same,'
