This Afternoon I will Be Doing My Final Recommendations For November 4th Elections

This afternoon I am closing the door on the local political races by making my final recommendations for the voters and moving onto the news itself.

Incredible Wicomico County Council Expenditure Reports Showing Massive Reimbursements To Bob Culver

Click on image above to enlarge. The document shows the Council expenses from 2011 forward.

Only 4 Council Members asked for Reimbursements for Expenses. Gail Barktovich, Joe Holloway, Sheree Sample Hughes and Bob Culver.

Gail Barktovich asked for 34 Dollars over the 4 years
Joe Holloway asked for 508.79
Sheree Sample Hughes asked for 555.86

As much has been made regarding expenditures of Rick Pollitt and members of the Board of Education this insane amount of taxpayer reimbursement to one Council member is beyond mind blowing. 

I was not even going to make a post of this because I wanted things to just play out but the fact that Bob's guilty conscience made him go to his buddy to post a rebuttal for fear of what I might post changed my mind. I hadn't even received all the info I had asked for yet from Melissa so I was in no way ready to make the post as I wanted more detail of the costs, but since he has now openly admitted to gouging the taxpayers to cover his travel costs to thousand of dollars It deserves to be posted. 

Mike McDermott Terrible For Victim's Families

Mike McDermott is absolutely one of the worst Police Officers when it comes to thinking of Victims families.

For all you die hard Republicans that are blinded by the R after a name, how about considering Mike McDermott from a human prospective instead of by his rhetoric he spews to you.

Mike McDermott has a terrible holier than thou chip on his shoulder that shows itself when he is not giving his song and dance to the sheep that fall on his every word..

Christine Sheddy a beautiful Mother of three small children who had been murdered and buried behind the bed and breakfast is a perfect example. Mike McDermott in the process of his shoddy Police work decided that he was going to judge Christine as garbage because of her lifestyle choices by telling her mother Lynn Dodenhoff that she was a sponge on society and insinuated that she had run off on a drug and booze binge and had just abandoned her children.

The entire time Mike was saying these things to her Mother, Christine had been murdered and buried away from her family and loved ones. This clearly regardless of how much you love his bs politics speaks of his character.

This is not the only time McDermott caused a victims family pain, thanks to a viewer tip and some investigation on it I also want to bring up the Charles' Phillip's case.

Mike McDermott in his role as Deputy continued to interview Charles after he had asked to speak to an attorney in regards to the murder of William Niblett.When the case made trial and the family had to sit in the courtroom and listen to the horrid details of the case and got the verdict they had hoped for had to then be informed that they had to do it all over again  because of McDermott not stopping an interview when the Defendant asked for an Attorney.

Mike McDermott thinks he is better than you, his entire life looking down at people that he thinks are inferior to him. This is not the kind of person we need in Annapolis representing the decent folk of this area. I want someone that will sit with victims families and not pass judgement on their lifestyle like McDermott does.

That person is Jim Mathias

Letter To Editor On Wind Turbine Issues

DUKE ENERGY's Shirley Wind Turbines Declared a "HUMAN HEALTH HAZARD"

DENMARK, WI - At the October 14, 2014 Brown County Board of Health meeting, a motion was unanimously approved declaring the Shirley Wind turbines a "Human Health Hazard". The text of the unanimously approved motion reads:

"To declare the Industrial Wind Turbines at Shirley Wind Project in the Town of Glenmore, Brown County, WI. A Human Health Hazard for all people (residents, workers, visitors, and sensitive passersby) who are exposed to Infrasound/Low Frequency Noise and other emissions potentially harmful to human health."

We applaud the integrity of the Brown County Board of Health in the work they have done to carry out their mission to 'promote individual and community health'. They have been deeply involved in trying to resolve the public health crisis that has existed in the Town of Glenmore since Emerging Energies of Wisconsin built the industrial wind project there in 2010. The project has been sold twice since its construction and is now owned by the renewables arm of Duke Energy, with Wisconsin Public Service purchasing the electricity.

Since the erection of the 8 turbines in Glenmore, among the largest in the United States at just under 500 feet tall, three families have vacated the homes they still own and complaints involving over 75 people in the project area have been filed with the Brown County Board of Health (including affidavits representing over 50 people that have been submitted to the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin). The root of the complaints and the home abandonments are the conditions created by Shirley Wind, allege the residents.

The declaration of Duke's Shirley Wind turbines as "Human Health Hazards" follow a year long study linking the signature of inaudible low frequency noise (created by the passing of the massive turbine blades past their supporting towers) to the homes that have been abandoned and to the homes where people continue to suffer. The Board of Health was asked to look at the study's raw data, the evidence linking the sound data to the wind turbines, peer-reviewed medical research and the complaints of the people living in the conditions around Duke's Shirley Wind project. They looked at the facts, they listened to the residents, they studied the medical literature, and then made the connection between Shirley Wind's operations and the suffering in Glenmore - declaring the wind turbines a "Human Health Hazard".
The Brown County Board of Health, the Brown County Human Services Committee, and the Brown County Board of Supervisors have all taken action on the wind turbine issue over the past four years. When resolutions have been sent to the State of Wisconsin to conduct the studies that their own PSC-funded testing called for, nothing was done. When emergency relocation aide was requested for those families forced from or suffering in their homes, the request was ignored. When they endorsed the 'Wisconsin Citizens Safe Wind Siting Guidelines' which includes science-based protections from low frequency noise, they were summarily dismissed. Brown County has now recognized this as a public health issue caused by the operation of Duke’s Shirley Wind.

The State of Wisconsin has stripped the right of towns and counties to responsibly site wind turbines in their own communities and have created state-wide siting rules with little protection for families forced to live in wind projects. The State refuses to recognize the health impacts around its existing wind turbine installations and draft better protections for future projects. By ignoring these impacts, they are dooming more communities to the same fate as the Town of Glenmore.

We build on the tremendous effort of the last saturation in Princeton Homes, which made it possible for us to identify street lights that needed fixing, potholes in streets, houses that were vacant and unregistered, and quite a few vehicles that hadn't moved in a long time. We appreciate citizens opening their doors and partnering with us in our efforts to increase the quality of the health and safety of our citizens.”

Why Does Worcester County States Attorney Beau Oglesby Need A Fully Police Decked Out Chevy Tahoe

example of Beau Oglesby Vehicle

As a Republican in Office Beau Oglesby certainly doesn't seem to care about the taxpayers. Upon his election the first thing Beau had to have was a fully police equipped Chevy Tahoe like the one shown above to drive around in. The Somerset County State's Attorney nor the Wicomico County State's Attorney use a vehicle funded by tax dollars and yet Beau had to have one with all the goodies like a Police vehicle. He is not a law enforcement officer and does not need to waste the taxpayers dollars on this.

Mike McDermott Can't Stand Facts

Mike McDermott faced with the facts regarding his salary increase is trying to play typical slimy word games to wiggle out of being caught doing the very things he complains about. This a quote from Mike McDermott in response to the pay raise.

"The Mayor of Pocomoke City does not possess a vote...not even to break a tie. Therefore, it would have been impossible for me to “vote myself” a salary increase. Only the City Council Members can make that decision. At the time, their decision was unanimous."

Mike do you think we are stupid? or are you hoping that the naive out there don't now how things worked in Pocomoke when you were Mayor?

Russ Blake the City Manager of Pocomoke and yourself have been buddies for a looong time. You claim the salary review board made the recommendation to raise the salaries, but it is up to the Mayor and City Manager to present items to the Council to vote on. That means you had some hand in presenting the recommendation for the raise.

Let us play Devil's advocate here and believe you were so angelic and had nothing to do with it, then Mike why did you accept it???You took that money as quickly as it was put out there. Knowing this was coming out of  taxpayers pockets and the fact you were making above 75 thousand dollars a year playing Deputy you could have very easily refused the increase, but guess what you didn't which makes what was stated by Mcdermottfacts.com  the truth.

And by the way Jim Mathias cut his own pay
