It seems the Somerset County Board Of Education wants to play hardball in reference to access to the bus video showing the incident that occurred. They have refused to show the victims Mother and they also refused to discuss or show it to WBOC on the 5pm news.
This is a post to inform the Somerset County Board Of Education Members that may not have received it, I have filed a FOIA request for a copy of the Videotape. All Top School Administrators and the School Attorney have been sent the letter which was also forwarded to my attorney as well. The public has a right to see what occurred on this bus and I will be fighting for that copy.

On May third 2012 Members of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Enforcement Team were honored by the Department of Justice United States Attorney’s Office of the eastern district of Virginia. The U. S. Attorney Neil H. MacBride presided over the ceremonies honoring several Law Enforcement Officers from Eastern Virginia for the outstanding work they had done solving major crimes in the area.
Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, Sgt. Passwaters, Cpl. Ramey, Deputy First Class Trader, and Deputy First Class Wells, were among the Officers honored for the investigation, arrest, and conviction of several subjects that were distributing drugs in the Maryland and Virginia area.
Operation “Bakers Dozen”, as it was called, initially identified 13 people that were involved together in selling drugs on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The investigation revealed that the drug activity reached into Worcester County Maryland. Virginia State Police investigators called on the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team to assist them in the investigation and apprehension of subject selling large quantities of drugs in the Maryland Virginia area. The investigation led to more than the original 13 people that were involved in the drug trade.
The major target of the investigation was arrested and charged federally for distribution of controlled dangerous substances. That subject was sentenced to close to 20 years in federal prison for his actions.

This is further North than I usually cover but this story has been irritating me since I heard about it on the news. I really don't care what they do to catch people speeding and if that means a novice sticker so be it. How many remember the fake MSP car near Berlin? I have also seen the car hood up on the side of the road trick. If you aren't speeding excessively than you don't have to worry about it.

Last night the Somerset County Board Of Ed acted like they had no clue what Dan Kuebler was talking about when he brought up the issue of the Bullying that has been reported. They made no comments and just sorta looked like he was discussing visiting aliens rather than children getting beaten on a School bus. It's nice to see they have no desire to confront this issue head on and looks like they are planning on shoving their heads in the sand and waiting for this to be over.
This is an issue that demands proactive work on the Boards part not this confused what are you talking about attitude.

Good things are happening in Delmar with Doug Marshall's Amphitheater project giving the green light by the Delmar Council. This is such a great idea and I am happy to see something with some vision behind it being brought forward to enhance our area for the better.

The peoples voices were heard and the ROTC program will not be leaving after all. This is such a great program for kids to get involved in and leads them into possible careers in the Armed Forces so I am glad the Board listened and changed it's tune.
