I have been hearing reports for a couple of weeks that something is afoot in the Salisbury Fire Department Administration. Reports of universal unhappiness from both career and volunteer firefighters have surfaced and rumors are some changes may be coming very soon. Stay Tuned

I found it interesting that the judge ordered the 16 year old accused of recently choking a female classmate from behind was going to be done in juvenile court and not tried as an adult. I'm unsure that he should get away with something so violent as that, what are your opinions.

I had to use this as an example although it makes me sad because I wish it still looked like the bottom picture Downtown. Should we close the Plaza to vehicles or not?
The Plaza on West Main street is very narrow as it is and with all the decorative planters and things in the middle it makes it worse. If they are going to keep it open to vehicle traffic I would suggest removing those things and keeping it more open like the bottom picture. There are few parking places along the street which again is because of all the decorative planters and things. The bottom pictures shows plenty of cars parked along the curb which is something we can't duplicate now.
The real problem will always be there is nothing Downtown for people to make a point of going to. I can assure you very few people happen to be riding through the plaza and be like o look an art gallery I'm going in. The reason the bottom picture is the ideal look for Salisbury is because at the time most of our commerce was there on the Plaza before the old mall. What we need is some anchor store to take a chance on us and move down there and see if Salisbury citizens would then have a reason to stop by. This would then bring other business into the fold.
If our local officials want to make Downtown come back to life that is all that they need. Could you imagine an Apple store opening on the Plaza? I can assure you it would be packed regardless of location.

"My Baltimore friend tells me something will be down in a few weeks. The indictment will contain multiple counts. There is an oral and written confession. The husband will not be charged because they think it will be difficult to get a conviction on him. She will go before the grand jury and a trial date will be set. They have taken their time to ensure the case is airtight so they can quickly go to trial. All indications are that this will not just be a slap on the wrist. The investigators have taken it seriously as has HSB.
An outside audit was done on the bank. They found no fault with the internal audit procedures. They did find fault with how the CEO did not have adequate oversight or controls over Wanda. The main reason for the fraud was due to the CEO giving her access to blank loan forms signed by the CEO. Wanda was able to manipulate reports but was eventually discovered by internal audits. Morale has been down mainly due to leadership. Business has not suffered."
