Dear WBOC supporter/advertising client,
I would like to bring to your attention that the type of WBOC prefers to attract are those who like sensationalism. WBOC chooses to report on the violence, danger, destruction and sadness in their reporting area. They choose to ignore community service reports, neighborly acts, neighborhood involvement, and other acts of kindness to others.
On Sunday, Aaron Culbertson, of Crisfield, was murdered by a fellow he grew up with. WBOC was quick to report that Aaron had been stabbed to death and that the suspect, Johnny Hill was in custody. It further reported that it was the first homicide in Crisfield since 2005. That’s it. No follow up!
Not only did they not do a follow up report, but they refused to report, even after being notified by at least three independent citizens that-
1. A relative had posted a plea for help from the community on behalf of Aaron’s family, who not only faced the sudden
loss of their family member, but also faced the daunting task of paying for his funeral expenses;
2. The plea was picked up by several people in Crisfield- a couple of businesses and an individual who didn’t even know
Aaron- these folks organized a Facebook page to centralize help from the community, established several fundraising
events which were held within 12-48 hours later and raised over $2500 and;
3. Mobilized the entire community to make donations from pocket change to $100 or more from individuals, businesses
and organizations alike.
4. This mobilization resulted in over $4000 donated to Aaron’s funeral expenses by the time of his funeral on Friday and
Is continuing to generate support so that the most recent update from Bradshaw’s Funeral Home is that Aaron’s funeral
Expenses have been 98% paid for!!!!!
5. And it isn’t stopping there! You can go into many of the businesses and find that collection containers are still on the
Counters collecting donations; There is an ongoing fundraising collection with donors receiving entries in to a raffle for
Services at the First Impression Hair & Nail Salon, a Fundraising Dinner is scheduled at the Moonlight Pizzaria on Sunday
August 12, 2012 at 6 pm. And a local family is holding a bake sale and lemonade sale around August 17th, while people
keep dropping off donations to the Cutting Edge Hair Affair, The Pizza Shoppe and Bradshaw’s Funeral Home daily.
But WBOC feels that reporting such a mobilization of such a poor community for the purpose of helping out one of their own on such a large scale of around $8000-9000, approximately, is not worthy of their attention!
SHAME ON WBOC!!!
Do you want your business known as being connected with such irresponsible, one-sided reporting? One who focuses on drawing the audiences who prefer violence to community interest? I sure hope not. There are many of YOUR customers who don’t want to associate with such audiences…
Thank you for your attention to this matter,

I refuse to use his first name anymore and will refer to him as pig burton from now on. If you have watched or seen any of the news agencies who covered his extradition hearing yesterday than you saw his smirky smiles on his piggy face. It is quite obvious he is enjoying being nothing more that a smart ass to the entire legal system by playing these little games with it. Three little girls crying at night missing their Mom and a husband missing the love of his life and this pig thinks it's funny.

We've had our dog for 7 years, and on vacation at the beach she got sick. We took her to Pet's ER in Salisbury and while they were taking her to the bathroom, she ran off. My wife and I got a call in the middle of the night telling us and we've been looking ever since. Worst thing about all of this was that we also owned her mom whom just passed away about 2 months ago from old age. Please help and post this.I sincerely appreciate anything you can do for us! Any and all help would surely be appreciated! When she was seen this morning, she was shaking and very nervous, so might not walk up to people. She has a catheter in her front paw and has a pink collar with pink bone on it. She also has a blue leash on that Pet's ER had on her. If found, please contact either (410) 365-9710 or (410) 530-6125. Last seen near Glen Avenue School at 6pm
