I don't know who had the idea to allow candidates and their helpers stand up in front of the Civic Center but it was a truly bad move. Several Candidates and their helpers are being super aggressive following people far up the walk toward the doors. In the past the candidates stayed across the street away from any of these issues and this is exactly why. Ann Suthowski in the red as seen in this photo was stopping people who were trying to get past her to preach to them about who to vote for. This has to stop. I early voted Friday Night and it was the same way, hoards of politicians and their helpers swarming all over people when they walked up. I know several complaints have been filed and I am filing one as well, they need to be back across the street. We are trying to encourage people to vote, and when they pull up to this unruly mob of people it is only going to make them want to keep driving.

Bob Culver Republican For County Executive and biggest waster of Taxpayer dollars on the County Council. Over the past 4 years Bob has asked for over 5,565.50 in reimbursements for travel expenses. The only other Council members that have asked for any reimbursements are Gail Barktovich who asked for 34 Dollars over the 4 years,Joe Holloway asked for 508.79 and Sheree Sample Hughes asked for 555.86.
Bob has taxpayers reimbursing him for cutting ribbons and attending Christmas parades. Bob says and I quote from his press release regarding the expenses. "The bulk of the travel expenses I have submitted reflect the weekly trips to Annapolis to represent our County". and " There have many times when I have been the only Council member or one of the few Council members present."
The details of his expenses show that is a lie, and I have went through many photos of these events he asked for mileage to see who else was present and when you scroll below this ridiculous list of taxpayer reimbursements to the conservative save the taxpayer dollar Bob Culver you will see all the other Council members who were able to be part of these events without asking for the taxpayers to pay them for it.
MORE PHOTOS ADDED
|Sheree Sample Hughes, Gail Barktovich, Bob Caldwell and Joe Holloway at 2011 Salisbury Festival. Guess what no request from any of them to be here|
|Sheree Sample Hughes, Stevie Prettyman, John Hall and Gail Bartovich at 2012 Pork in the Park, again no other member in this photo asked for the taxpayers to refund them to be there.|
I was happy to hear that the Salisbury Police Department will begin training Officers on how to use Tasers to help lower Officer and Civilian injuries. I have always felt like tasers are a great tool for Law Enforcement to have and hope this program is successful.

On October 23, 2014 Laura Barrere, 41, of Cambridge, MD was charged with driving while under the influence and while impaired by alcohol and driving the wrong way on a one way street. An officer observed a vehicle on Dover Street near the Talbot Bank driving the wrong way on the one way street. The vehicle was stopped and when the officer made contact with the driver, Barrere, the officer believed that she had been drinking. When Barrere was unable to properly complete field sobriety tests, she was taken into custody. She was later released after being issued the citations.
With the news that Sears will be closing upwards of 100 stores across the nation, the lingering question is when will we find out if our store will be one of them. If we lost JC Penney and Sears at the Centre in the same year that would be a huge deal

Wicomico County State’s Attorney, Matthew A.

The State is thankful that the Court handed down this tough sentence to this repeat offender.” Mr. Maciarello also commended the Salisbury City Police Criminal Investigation Division, including Det. Popovich and Det. Caputo for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case.

(October 22, 2014) – Earlier this week, a very dedicated husband and wife duo resigned from the Ocean City Police Department Auxiliary Unit. Auxiliary Officers Donald and Wanda Olson served as Auxiliary Unit volunteers for 11 years and donated a combined total of over 5,000 hours to the Ocean City Police Department and the citizens of Ocean City.

The Olson’s will be greatly missed by every member of the Ocean City Police Department as they continue their retirement closer to family in western Maryland.
The Auxiliary Unit is a group of civilian volunteers that are trained to support the department and serve the citizens of Ocean City. Members of this unit volunteer their time to assist sworn personnel with traffic details, special event security, administrative assistance, and much more. Anyone interested in joining the Auxiliary Unit is asked to contact Lt. Scott Harner at 410-520-5318.

We look forward to highlighting the efforts of the SPD, to hearing suggestions from our citizens, and to working to continue implementing changes that will help us better serve Salisbury.”
As the Repubican candidate in the Governor race I am very disappointed that Larry Hogan won't commit to undoing the O'Malley gun legislation bill. As a matter of fact in a release from his camp to WMDT
stated "As Governor, Larry Hogan will uphold both the U.S. Constitution and the laws of Maryland; he will not overturn existing Maryland law and will work across party lines to reduce gun violence."
That is very disapointing
The same rap group from Cambridge that made news a month or so ago for their music video is once again making news for a possible threat toward Cambridge South Dorchester High School Principal Bromwell.
Around the 2 minutes and 26 second mark are the lyrics that sound like a threat to shoot him in the face. The Dorcester County State's Attorney is actively investigating this threat

For months he has been threatening Laura with this big reveal, and finally like a giddy child put the information up. The info was a pill bottle with Laura's name on it for methodone, no story to it, no context just the picture calling it the smoking gun. This is all being done to try to destroy Laura's reputation and Character by associating Methadone with drug addicts, so Laura must be a druggy.
Joe Albero has been the scum of the earth for far too long. Look what he did to the Foxwell family where the poor family stated on television he victimized them as much as Thomas Leggs. This is just the latest sad episode.
Peoples medical issues are nobody's business except their own, not for a reject blogger like Albero to make fodder of on his site. Methadone is used for many more things other than drug addiction, and Laura was taking to deal with serious Migraine problems she has had since she was young. This honestly isn't any of our business and I am saddened that she even had to defend herself over a legally prescribed medication.
Our local media should be ashamed of themselves to run with a story taken from Albero considering he had no story behind it at all, just a picture. What was the story?? Laura Mitchell had a legally prescribed medication?? it was sickening to watch the local outlets act like blogs.
There is one thing that I will say and that is whoever took that photo and sent it to Albero, you will be found out.
Albero claimed the pill bottle was attained legally but let me share something with you. The pill bottle has been photo-shopped off it's original background. If the pills were found in the garbage, why go through all the effort to conceal the location the photo was taken? you could place them on any counter and nobody would know. The issue is there is a good chance this was a picture taken of evidence and an effort is being made to conceal the background.
I am truly sickened by what Laura is having to go through and honestly irritated that John Cannon unlike Matt Holloway didn't have the balls to say this was a despicable act and condone it. It is for this reason I am now going to support Laura and Matt. John can go sit in his land of oblivion.
I want to ask my viewers to ask far and wide to anyone they know if they have even heard a rumor of who sent that picture to Albero. Leave a comment here and help put an end to this behavior.

My first encounter with Mike McDermott was over the phone concerning my daughters disappearance. I can hear his voice like it was yesterday...Detective McDermott asked me what I needed. I explained that I wanted to be kept in the loop concerning my daughters case. Within moments Detective McDermott informed me that my daughter was a sponge on society because of her lack of work history. He said that she had run off on a drunken drug binge and abandoned her children. He even went so far as to get a warrant for her arrest for child abandonment. Who talks to a mother of a missing person like that? Mike McDermott does. If there is any doubt that this conversation happened, I am here to tell you that it did. Has McDermott ever apologized? No. Do I expect one? No. Do I want one? Not anymore, it really isn't important to me because I have forgiven his words. But make no mistake, I will never forget them.
If this behavior is something you agree with then by all means vote McDermott.
All I can do is share my experience with you.
In closing...I met Jim Mathias once. In those few minutes of introduction Mr. Mathias made me feel as though I mattered and apologized to me for all that my family had gone through with the loss of my daughter. This speaks volumes when character is an issue, and character is indeed an issue! I suppose I have rambled on enough I just thought it important that I speak up about a wolf in sheeps clothing.
