Kudos To State Highway For Road Cleanup


I wanted to put out a big kudos to all the people who were out clearing the roads after our recent snow storm. Honestly one of the best jobs I had seen. I traveled to Crisfield as well and the roads were fantastic. I don't think people really appreciate the work these guys and girls put into keeping our roads so awesome during these storms...

Is Piedmont Planning On Leaving Salisbury? Comment Worthy A Post

Piedmont is switching to new and larger jet aircraft, and its future in Salisbury is uncertain, both for flight operations and general office and admin. Most of its personnel are based elsewhere, primarily in Philadelphia, Charlotte and Phoenix. American (parent) and Piedmont are getting new and bigger facilities in those and other airports where most of their flights are to/from. Salisbury flights and passengers are an increasing smaller share. Don't be surprised if Piedmont is gone completely from Salisbury in a year or so from now.

Storm Preparation Actions in Place for the City of Salisbury

Salisbury - Mayor Jake Day announced that the City of Salisbury is preparing for the arrival of anywhere from 6 to 8 inches of snow, beginning Friday afternoon as a wintry mix and ending Saturday afternoon as snow. Snowfall is expected to begin by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon, and to be at its heaviest during the overnight and Saturday morning hours.

Residents are cautioned to drive safely and to be aware of potential roadway icing. City road crews will monitor conditions, and they will begin salting and plowing operations as warranted. The City has 600 tons of salt on-hand, and nine (9) trucks ready and equipped with plows and salt bodies and (4) additional trucks with plows. Plowing of residential streets will occur if snow accumulation exceeds FOUR (4) INCHES or more. In such case, the City’s 7 snow emergency routes will be the first streets to be plowed. Motorists are reminded to NOT PARK along snow emergency routesand private plow contractors are reminded to not push snow into public roads.  Failure to comply may result in a $500 fine. Maps of the City’s snow emergency routes can be found online at www.salisbury.md , or http://bit.ly/2BhxRj0 .

If you have to be on the roads during the upcoming snow event, it is important to realize that the most slippery surfaces often do not appear as hazardous as they actually are. Bridges, overpasses and intersections are common areas where the pavement freezes faster than on ordinary roadways. Motorists are urged to slow down and allow extra distance for braking.

Additionally, citizens are reminded that all property owners adjacent to any street within City limits are responsible for the removal of snow from their sidewalks. The snow must be removed for the entire length of the property for a width of four (4) feet. The removal must take place within six (6) hours after the snow and or ice has stopped falling. If snowfall ends between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., then snow removal must occur before 2 p.m. The purpose of this ordinance is to provide the ability for our residents and visitors to move freely and safely throughout the City. The property owner is liable for any accidents which may occur as a result of un-cleared sidewalks. Please help us make the City of Salisbury safe during severe weather conditions.

Emergency contact information for Salisbury Department of Field Operations during business hours from 8:00 to 4:30 is 410-548-3177. For service calls after hours please contact the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165.

Police Charge Dorchester County Man with Oystering in a Sanctuary

Police Charge Dorchester County Man with Oystering in a Sanctuary
Cite Four Dirt Bikers with Illegal Operation
A Dorchester County man was charged with multiple counts of illegal oystering during a joint operation between Maryland Natural Resources Police officers on the ground and Natural 1, the department’s recently reacquired helicopter.
Jody Daniel Jackson, 18, of East New Market, was spotted harvesting oysters with a power dredge in the Little Choptank River Nov. 3.
The entire river is closed to dredging and the area where Jackson was working is an oyster sanctuary.
Natural 1’s pilot spotted the 40-foot workboat with bushels of oysters on the deck and alerted officers to intercept it as it approached the dock in Madison Bay. The pilot took photos of the dredging activity and marked GPS coordinates.
The coordinates were verified by the department’s Hydrographic Operations staff and Jackson was charged Thursday with: harvesting oysters more than 250 feet inside a sanctuary, catching oysters for commercial purposes without a license, using a power dredge outside a designated area, failing to pay the state oyster surcharge, failing to cull oysters and return shell to the original bed, failing to obtain a certificate of number, failing to display a Maryland use sticker, and operating an unnumbered vessel.
Jackson is scheduled to appear in Dorchester County District Court March 21. The maximum fine if he is found guilty of all charges is $8,500.
****************************************************
Officers took part in a Maryland State Police Driving Under the Influence checkpoint in Anne Arundel County last weekend that resulted in the arrest of a local motorist.
Olalekan Arawole, 47, of Glen Burnie received six citations for operating under the influence of alcohol and he was released to a sober driver. A district court date has not been set.
Arawole approached the checkpoint on Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie around 1:37 a.m. Saturday. An officer handing out a pamphlet about the effects of alcohol saw an open container of beer in the center-console cup holder. Arawole failed the field sobriety tests and registered a blood alcohol content of 0.15, nearly double the state legal limit of 0.08, during a Breathalyzer test administered by the Maryland State Police.
***************************************************
A Virginia man was arrested early Monday morning and charged with drunken driving by an officer who stopped to assist a disabled vehicle southbound on the Salisbury Bypass, just before the St. Luke’s Road exit.
Alvin Lee Reid, 44, of Painter, received four citations for impaired operation. He registered a blood alcohol content of 0.12, on a Breathalyzer test administered by the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, well above the state’s legal limit of 0.08.
A hearing date has not been set in Worcester County District Court.
***************************************************
Officers on patrol in Anne Arundel County Saturday afternoon charged four dirt bike riders with illegal operation.
Jeremy Sean Martin, 26, and Calvin M. Reid Jr., 24, both of Lothian, George Cody Hall II, 48, of Annapolis, and Sean Francis McMillian, 42, of North Beach, received citations for operating an off-road vehicle on property without written permission.
They were stopped on a trail in Davidsonville off Governor’s Bridge Road that is owned by Anne Arundel County. The trail is clearly posted as prohibiting the use of motorized vehicles. None of the riders had written permission to be operating their dirt bikes on the property.
A records check showed that Martin had outstanding warrants in Anne Arundel County and Manassas, Va. He was arrested and taken to the Anne Arundel County Detention Center to await extradition to Virginia.

Winter Storm Bearing Down On Delmarva

The first winter storm of the season will be affecting the region by late this afternoon and continuing until late Saturday. Low pressure will be tracking across the gulf states today...then northeast to off the North Carolina coast Saturday. There is the potential for accumulating wet snow...mainly along and west of a line from Wallops Island to Emporia Virginia.
Models have trended toward higher amounts of precipitation since early Thursday. There is expected to be a wide zone of mixed rain and wet snow...right now estimated at roughly 50-75 miles either side of a Salisbury MD to Richmond and South Hill VA line. This is still a low confidence snow accumulation forecast...especially in the wide zone of mixed rain and wet snow. Limiting factors are the recent mild weather and marginal cold air now in place over the region. A difference of only 1-2 degrees in temperature along with the rate that precipitation falls will play a large role in how much snow accumulates. A change to all snow over a large area is possible on Saturday as colder air begins to spread into the region. At this time...limited or minimal travel impacts are expected as roads are likely to remain mainly wet.

NAACP Wants To Lower Standards For Wicomico County Economic Impact Scholarship Program


In what is a text book example of taking a hand up and making it a hand out, Mary Ashanti leader of our local NAACP wants to lower the 2.0 gpa standard required to be eligible for the  Wicomico County Economic Impact Scholarship Program.

The reasoning is it's difficult for black youths to reach that standard. A 2.0 GPA????? Are you kidding me. That is a C average. So instead of encouraging black youths to work hard to bring their average to a C so they are eligible for this Scholarship program, the NAACP wants to lower the standard. Do the leaders of the Black community not see you are doing injustice to your own people by telling Black youth that it's ok if they don't try hard to learn, you are going to give it to them anyway.

This my friends is the perfect example of how a hand up becomes a hand out. Please contact your County Council members and tell them to not lower this GPA requirement.
