Bruce Morrison Allowing Pocomoke To Spiral Out Of Control


Bruce Morrison is sitting back playing his fiddle while Rome burns. The streets are being taken over again by the criminal element since Chief Sewell was illegally fired. Bruce Morrison is the most clueless Mayor on the Eastern shore. He doesn't seem to even know what the charter of the town he represents says. This doesn't surprise since he has always been a puppet for Russ Blake. How someone like Bruce Morrison who was terminated for theft at Sysco, got elected to represent the good people of Pocomoke is still unclear.The best day for Pocomoke will be when he is no longer in a position to embarrass the town with his ignorance of it.

What Difference Does A Victim's Political Affiliation Make?


I read the Daily Times article about the murder in Mardela and was astonished to read they felt it necessary to bring the victim's political views into the story. What difference does that make? a man lost his life, it was a sad situation for the family but to make it look like somehow a political view caused a murder is sad.

Letter To Editor On Malnourished Horses


"I try very hard to mind my own business. I have been following this story for one, because I am a avid horse lover and for two, because I know the lady that is involved and have always liked her.But with reading a lot of the comments on the other sites I just feel like people are just forgetting why this whole deal has come out, which is the health of these innocent horses....you know...God's Creatures. Look at the darn pics. They are pathetic and NO they are not "AGED" and NO they are not "RESCUES"! The black mare this woman purchased as a filly from a well known ranch in Arkansas whom only breeds horses with "Hancock" linage in their pedigree. The filly was purchased in 2013 and was only a 2 year old which would make her a 5 year old now which is far from AGED! As you can see in the pic this was what the filly looked like when she bought her.The gray horse was a racing quarter horse. They sure don't race them when they are aged. He was purchased in Oct of 2014.If he was a rescue she sure didn't post it on the social media as a rescue for they traveled out of state to the peoples farm and picked this guy up. As you will see in his pic...he sure wasn't skin and bones then. They both sure don't look like they looked when this lady purchased them soooo what is the problem? The solution is sure not to just sweep it under the rug because apparently she has a lot more where these two came from!!! I don't think this lady even knows how many horses she owns let alone all the dogs that she keeps in horse trailers. There has even been mention of a fox that is tied up to a dog house.This is just not right. I like this lady and these other people that started putting this on social media tried to talk to her and get her some help but she didn't want any parts of it. That is when she got nasty and they were only trying to help her and the animals for they knew that she was getting in over her head. Kudos to them for trying to help and trying to make others aware that there are a few horses starving to death.I don't feel that anyone is out to bash her or put her down....they are just out for justice for those animals.When I first saw the pics I was sick to my stomach and all I could think about was the stallion,Dual Peppy that made the social media last year. That stallion made his owner millions of dollars. The owner sold him and the horse ended up in bad hands. Luckily one day a neighbor lost their dog and went out looking for him. She heard him in the neighbors barn and when she walked in there....it was a nightmare. Carcasses laying all over the place along with emanciated horses(that looked like these two) including Dual Peppy. The woman took pics and called the authorities but nobody would do anything....that is until she started posting them on the social media. I guess the agencies knew that the people would not quit until they went in and found enough evidence to prosecute these people and seize the animals.See for yourself what I am talking about. Just pull up Justice For Dual Peppy and read the horrid story. I for one hope that these people that put the awareness out there about these two horses don't give up until somebody steps in and helps them get these horses out of there and I hope that while they are there taking them maybe they could remove the stallions as well so this woman can not continue to be a back yard breeder and breed what she is unable to feed."

Letter To Editor About Possible Animal Neglect In Wicomico County


I was contacted about these horses that people are concerned about because of apparent neglect. These horses are located on the 8700 block of Gumboro Road in Pittsville. The animals appear malnourished. I don't know anything about horses but these look bad.

I had taken the post down temporarily to allow people to check out the situation as I was asked to help. The owner of these horses a lady named Kelly Dukes immediately ran to her close friend the fuja blogger  (his words) to protect her. I really didn't know anything about this woman until this happened today but seeing she is a close friend with the Albero's tells me all I need to know. The people had a legitimate concern for these horses, which I applaud and thank them for bringing them to light. If Ms Dukes is helping these animals as claimed that is fine, but to attack someone simply for seeing a hurting animal and wanting to see it be checked is pathetic...but after all I think pathetic is the right word for the Albero clan
