Underage Alcohol Compliance Check- Somerset County

Underage Alcohol Compliance Check- Somerset County


Somerset County, Maryland- On Thursday May 25 2018, Troopers from the Maryland State Police Princess Anne Barrack conducted numerous alcohol compliance checks at retail establishments in Somerset County. Troopers ensured that various retail establishments which hold a Somerset County Liquor License were denying sales of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21 years old.
A total of 15 retail establishments were checked. The following retail establishments complied with the provisions of the law and denied the sale of alcoholic beverage to minors:
  • Eden Quick Stop, Eden Maryland
  • Juniors Wine Stop and Shop, Princess Anne Maryland
  • Kings Creek, Princess Anne Maryland
  • Dash Inn, Westover, Maryland
  • Goose Creek, Westover, Maryland
  • Marion Station Market, Marion Station Maryland
  • Linton’s Seafood, Crisfield Maryland
  • Brew Thru, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Big Willy’s , Crisfield , Maryland
  • Cove Street Market, Crisfield , Maryland
  • Shore Stop, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Crisfield Oceanic, Crisfield, Maryland
The following retail establishments were not in compliance with the provisions of the law and sold alcoholic beverages to a minor:
  • Kash and Karry, Princess Anne, Maryland
  • Captain Tyler’s Crab House, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Waterman’s Edge, Crisfield, Maryland
In addition to any sanctions imposed against the liquor licenses that may be imposed by the Somerset County Liquor Board, the employees who sold the alcoholic beverages to a minor will face charges in the District Court of Maryland for Somerset County for furnishing an alcoholic beverage to a minor. If convicted these people face a maximum penalty of up to 2 years of incarceration, a fine of $1,000 or both.
In an effort to keep minors safe during the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend Troopers will continue with unannounced compliance checks to ensure that alcoholic beverages stay out of minors possession.  Historically, Memorial Day and other high traffic volume Holidays show an increase in alcohol related collisions, many of these collisions involve serious bodily injury.
The alcohol compliance checks were made possible by funding provided by an in partnership with the Somerset County Local Management Board.

Of all the people running for this office, the one you most definitely not cast a vote for is Mark McIver. Mark is extremely divisive, did little to nothing to get a Republican candidate for The District 4 Wicomico race. and honestly he has been doing it far far too long and it is more than time for him to retire.

Salisbury Haters You Can Go Suck It


I get so amused on an everyday basis the number of cowardly anonymous commenters (half of which I believe are Bob Culver) disparage Salisbury and the Mayor who has led the way for this City to grow into the biggest City on the Easterm Shore.

You all are a bunch of blow hard nobodies. If you actually had an iota of knowledge about the actual working of this City, which I do btw, you would clearly see the amount of things Jake Day has accomplished and put into action. Of course we have crime, of course we have many areas that we need to improve upon, but I see the vision that we are trying to attain.

We have a first class Police agency, a first class Fire Department and yet the people whose feelings have gotten hurt somewhere along the line refuse to see the truth of the matter. Jake Day and the City of Salisbury are moving forward to make this City even better, you don't like him or this City let me personally invite you to get the f&*k out of our City. Don't you have a County to run into the ground Bob?

Salisbury Named #1 City Poised to Become a Powerhouse by Realtor.com

Salisbury Named #1 City Poised to Become a Powerhouse by Realtor.com
Salisbury, MD – Salisbury has been named the number one city on Realtor.com’s list of 10 Smaller Cities Poised to Become Powerhouses.  Realtor’s team compared data from the Nation’s top 200 largest metropolitan areas, and factored in population, average income, average home price, employment statistics, available cultural amenities, and building permit growth.  The data puts Salisbury atop an impressive list of cities such as Daytona, FL, Winston-Salem, NC, Knoxville, TN, and Grand Rapids, MI, to name just a few.

According to Realtor.com, key factors in Salisbury’s ranking included record growth in the City’s metropolitan statistical area, low cost-of-living, a boom in small business growth, and a craft beer scene which brings in visitors—and prospective residents—from across the region.  Construction permitting, which contributed to Salisbury’s ranking, saw a record year in 2017, with over $55 million dollars in projects in the City.

The good news of the top ranking comes in the midst of a very big year for Salisbury: 

·         The inaugural SBY Marathon, a Boston Marathon qualifier, drew over 1,000 runners to Salisbury in April. Registrants came from as far away as the United Kingdom.
·         The National Folk Festival begins its 3-year residency here in September. The event is expected to draw anywhere from 60 thousand to one hundred thousand attendees in its first year.
·         Work on the City’s Main St. continues, thanks in part to 1 million dollars allocated by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. Once complete, the overhaul will give Downtown Salisbury a fresh face, and Maryland’s fastest high speed broadband at every front door in the metro core.
·         Construction on the Riverwalk Amphitheater is nearing completion. This exciting new space will feature a public art installation which will act as a sound baffle along the edge of Business Rte. 13.
·         Significant cosmetic upgrades to the City’s parking garage were recently unveiled, including a parking pad for food trucks which already frequent Downtown. These upgrades are expected to be complete in time for the National Folk Festival.
·         Due to ever-increasing attendance, the City’s popular 3rd Friday celebration recently expanded its footprint to include the portion of W. Market St. in front of Acorn Market and Angello’s Boutique.
·         Programming has begun at the new Truitt St. Youth Center, and work is currently underway on the Newton St. Youth Center in the North Camden Neighborhood.
·         Waterside Park has had State money allocated for a new parking lot, playing fields, and other upgrades to complement the recently-overhauled basketball courts
·         Salisbury hosted its first Christmas Market and Winter Wonderland celebration in the Salisbury City Park, featuring a 50’ Christmas tree and an ice skating rink
·         Phase 2 construction is underway on the Salisbury Skatepark.  This current phase, which expands the park by more than half, will be complete by the end of July.
·         Salisbury celebrated the arrival of its new Andean Bear, Pinocchio. The animal came from Salisbury sister city, Salinas, Ecuador.
·         The Naylor Mill Forest Trail, which was saved from development by concerned citizens and the City Council, was granted the largest conservation easement inside any municipality in the State of Maryland.  The trail was recently dedicated with signage and upgrades to the trail head.

“Our mission is to be one of the best small cities in America, and it’s extremely gratifying to see the work our City team and our citizens are doing recognized in this way,” said Mayor Jake Day.  “It’s an impressive list, and to be leading that pack is such an honor.”

Reggie Mason A Good Man Being Attacked For No Reason By Mike McDermott And Others

Reggie Mason is a good man who as of late has come under attack by former friends and allies for one simple reason, he endorsed Matt Crisafulli to fill his shoes upon his retirement. The haters need to ask themselves why would a good man who you supported for Sheriff and in general for his past 20+ years police life, a former Marine who served in Vietnam and community leader not want Mike McDermott as your Sheriff. The answer is a simple one. Mike and several of his supporters in the Worcester County Sheriff''s department were doing shit without asking or telling Reggie Mason about it. Mike McDermott a simple Lt trying to act like he was already elected by changing patrols and other things.

Reggie gets wind of this and calls those individuals out, comes out in support of Matt and here we are. Mike McDermott attacking him at every forum, making disparaging comments about him on Facebook, all for the purpose of degrading and diminishing Reggie's endorsement of Matt. Beau Oglesby who is now sitting as a judge, even went to Reggie to try to convince him to endorse Mike. Reggie said no, Matt is the best person for the job. None of us have the level of experience or knowledge that Reggie Mason has when it comes to Law Enforcement and service to our Country and community. A man like that can see leadership potential, and that is with Matt and not Mike.

The Worcester County community needs to be aware that this great man is being put through the ringer for daring to think for himself and express his desire for his successor. Shame on any of you for doing this to a good man.

This attack is just the latest on former Sheriff's who call subordinates to their Office when they see BS. Sheriff Martin was another good man who brought Mike McDermott up for losing a gun from the evidence locker, was the Sheriff doing the right thing? no the McDermott camp starts the Sheriff Martin has gone mental game that they are now doing to Reggie. Enough of these games from this group. Do you really want a person like McDermott running a County wide Department? A man who degrades good men who dare disagree with him? Men with far better leadership and experience? The answer is Hell No. This is why Matt Crisafulli is Reggie's choice to lead the Sheriff's department into the future.

Safe Boating Class, June 5, 6 &7

Safe Boating ClassJune 5, 6 &7

The USCG Auxiliary graduated its second Safe Boating Class of 2018.  Twenty-eight more area boaters know the meaning of ‘Red, Right, Returning’, when they are the ‘give way’ versus ‘stand on’ boat in passing situations and the hyper-critical importance of a designated driver on the water.

The next class is scheduled for June 5. 6 & 7at the Ocean Pines Library.  The class will run from 6:00PM until 9:00PM each night.
The State of Maryland requires that everyone born after 1 July, 1972, needs to pass the Maryland Safe Boating Class and have their certificate with them when operating a powerboat; however, it’s highly recommended that everyone who wants to be informed about safe boating regardless of their age or experience take the class.
Taught by Maryland and USCG Auxiliary certified instructors, the class is a fun and relaxing three night event culminating in the administration of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) test and awarding of the Safe Boating Certificate.

Perhaps you are starting out in boating, or coming back to it – this is a great chance to brush up on your general boating knowledge and get practical boating insight and advice from Coast Guard Auxiliary Instructors.  Besides the state mandated material - legal responsibilities, safety equipment, navigation, good boating practices, the class covers other pertinent subjects like marlinspike (knots & lines handling), local Ocean City water knowledge, marine radio protocols and, of course, a couple of sea stories.
Future Maryland Safe Boating Classes are scheduled July and September in the three evening format, at the Ocean Pines library.  It will also be a one day format, Saturday, May 5.  The Saturday class will run from 8:30AM to 4:30PM.

Class size is limited.  Class fee is $15 per student which includes study guide.

For more information or to register, please contact Barry Cohen at 410-935-4807 or E-mail CGAUXOC@Gmail.com.

Message from the Sheriff: 
It is with tremendous sorrow and profound sadness that I announce the sudden and untimely death of Deputy First Class Steven Ray of the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, less than 24 hours after working his last assignment.  Steven, an 18 year law enforcement veteran, and a proud United States Marine was just 42 years of age and leaves behind three sons, a special longtime girlfriend, and four siblings.

As Sheriff of Wicomico County, I ask that you keep the men and women of the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office and the Family of Deputy Steven Ray in your thoughts and prayers as they will be experiencing many difficult days ahead.

Thank you Stevie Ray for serving the citizens of Wicomico County with distinction and pride.  Semper Fi.

Reggie Mason Gets Apology From Worcester County Commissioners

THE DOWNTOWN SALISBURY FESTIVAL RETURNS THIS JUNE

THE DOWNTOWN SALISBURY FESTIVAL RETURNS THIS JUNE

Salisbury, MD:  The Downtown Salisbury Festival - presented by Pohanka of Salisbury - returns to Downtown Salisbury this June 8-10, 2018, complete with carnival rides, great food, arts & entertainment and more!   This year the action will take place along E. Market Street, with all new carnival rides.  From funnel cakes, to oyster fritters – there will be something for everyone at the Downtown Salisbury Festival this June!

“The layout will be slightly different this year while the new amphitheater is being constructed,” says Salisbury Arts District’s executive director Jamie Heater, “but it is still a great chance to enjoy Downtown Salisbury’s Riverwalk and everything our community has to offer!” This year, vendors, food trucks and the main stage will be hosted along E. Market Street, on the eastern side of downtown.  Parking Lot One and the Parking Garage will be both be open and accessible for parking.

The Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District is again teaming up with the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce to bring a carnival to Downtown Salisbury.  This year the carnival will be hosted closer to the main action, in City of Salisbury Parking Lot 10 – adjacent to Route 13.  A new location, plus all new rides, means it’s guaranteed to be fresh and exciting for everyone.  Tickets can be purchased Friday – Sunday, with ride-all-day wristbands available Sunday only!

The Salisbury Festival, originally called the Dogwood Festival, began in the 1980’s when Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council held an event called “Arts on the Plaza” that featured local artists.  The festival continued to feature a large arts & culture component as The Salisbury Festival, and was continued by the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce for 32 years before retiring the concept in 2015.   

“We are so excited to bring the long-running traditional downtown Salisbury Festival back in a big way!  We look forward to seeing you downtown!” said Mayor Jake Day. 

The festival will take place on Friday June 8th, Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th, 2018.  For more information on the festival, or to register to be sponsor, vendor or volunteer, please visit www.downtownsalisburyfestival.com.

The Problem With Mike McDermott


Most people who read this site know that Mike McDermott who is running for Worcester County Sheriff, is not one of my favorite people. Last night was just a prime example of exactly why. The Sheriff's candidates had 4 minutes each to talk about their vision for the Office. Scott Bernal, Matt Crisafulli and George Truitt all took their time to say why they would be the best for the job citing ideas they have for the future of the Office and their mutual respect for each other. Mike McDermott? not so much. Mike decided to spend his 4 minutes running his opponents down regarding their experience levels. It was all about Mike and how great he is. This is what separates humble people with people that think so highly of themselves.

Mike likes to keep using the slogan "experience matters" as a way to throw shade on his opponents. Mike has even gone on record stating his opponents aren't even qualified to be beat cops in small town agencies. This again is Mike McDermott. No respect for his opponents, just trash their careers and reputations. Mike builds himself up by tearing others down.

Many months back an attempt to persuade me to join the Mike camp was made, which I ultimately declined. Let me explain. I am always open to seeing people change, if I see heartfelt desire to do so. With Mike McDermott that is never the case. Mike wants to placate you, to eliminate the number of threats he perceives to his political career. I informed them that Mike didn't have to make anything right with me, as I am a grown ass man. Anyone that reads this site knows my issues with Mike are the samples mentioned above and more importantly for me his treatment of Lynn Dodenhoff, Christine Sheddy, her children, her family and friends.

Mike McDermott's "experience" he talks about so frequently was 26 years of law enforcement in 2007 . Mike made up his mind that Christine had just decided to run off to go party and say the hell with her children and responsibilities, and even filed charges of child abandonment against her. . These are not my opinions..these are facts. When Lynn Dodenhoff (Christine's Mother)tried to tell him that her Daughter would never do that, Mike tells her Mother that she was a "sponge on society" for her lack of work history. Christine Sheddy had lost the love of her life and Father of her child Hailey to Cancer just a couple of years earlier.

Two years, three months and seven days later after Lynn worked tirelessly with the Maryland State Police and the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office led by Joel Todd , Christine's body was recovered from a shallow grave within a stones throw from the very Office that Mike McDermott worked in. That was his 26 years of experience.

This is where the problem with Mike McDermott started with me, and why ultimately I could never support Mike for any Office. After Christine's body was found, did Mike ever try to apologize for disparaging her to her Mother? the answer is no..he never reached out to apologize for the hateful words and attitude he took regarding a murder victim. That my friends is not how someone with a heart or conscience acts.

At last nights forum a lady who had been blocked from Mike's facebook page for questioning him on his proposed budget ideas, was told it was done because that page is only for supporters. I thought campaign pages were for people to get to know more about the candidates and their ideas. It seems for Mike it is a Mike McDermott fan page where he only has to see positive things about how awesome he is. Mike also called the lady a name and turned away. How can Mike McDermott claim to have the best interest of everyone in mind, when he cannot take criticism or accept when he is wrong?. Everyone last night also noticed that Mike refused to shake the hands of his opponents, which is why later on when Mike walked back and offered his hand to me I told him I wasn't going to shake his hand.

Worcester County Sheriff Reggie Mason is a good man, one with integrity and honor. A man that all Republicans rallied behind without fail in the past elections. Reggie has fully endorsed Matt Crisafulli to be the next Sheriff after he retires. Notice what happened as soon as this was made public? Mike McDermott starts disparaging Reggie and the way he has handled the Sheriff's office the past few years. Reggie has even called Mike out on this publicly. What does the McDermott camp do? They go around trying to convince everyone that Reggie has mental issues as a way to take away any credence to Reggie's endorsement. That my friends is the truth.


I don't dislike Mike McDermott without cause, I dislike Mike McDermott because this above is who he is. I just ask that if you are a Worcester County Voter and a republican to please consider my above true statements before you vote for Mike. Matt Crisafulli cares about everyone and doesn't dismiss and judge others who disagree with him.

An apology at this point from him would be of no value, as it would be done for political reasons only, sincere regret would have happened when Christine's body was removed from the ground.
