Mayor Jake Day: Fake News, No, Fake Politician


Without going into a long rant, let me just say a few things about Mayor Jake Day and his most recent attacks against me and SBYNews. 

Number one, Jake is running around telling people to view some analytic website I've never heard of to see the real traffic on SBYNews.com. We blew his BS away by spending the week publishing our real traffic twice a day to prove he and his Liberal friends are full of sh!t. This is something we had never done before.

Yesterday we published a horrific story about a local woman who had been raped a week earlier and NOTHING has been put out by the SPD. The victim stated that the detective on the case told her she was the 15th victim of such a crime. 

Now, you can either believe the Mayor, who has EVERYTHING to lose or you can believe me. But I want you to THINK about this. There has not been ONE THING put out there by the SPD, MSP or WCSO. No carjacking. No assault. NOTHING! For those of you who say Mayor Jake Day, (and others) said what we published is "fake News", did they at least tell you SOMETHING happened, NO! 

Perhaps many of you will recall the article we did years ago when a woman, (prostitute) had been murdered in Salisbury. While I had been immediately tipped off and even sent a photo of the deceased woman, SPD refused to alert the public, even though they had a suspect, a vehicle description and even the fact that there were temporary tags on the vehicle. We published the story, (without the photo) and I was immediately surrounded by the States Attorney, MSP, WCSO and SPD demanding my source, I refused. They threatened to arrest me and I told them, go ahead. 

So don't call me Fake News Mayor Day. I've been through enough of Salisbury's games. You seem to be just as desperate to belittle us as former Mayors Barrie Tilghman and Jim Ireton. Let's see, I'm still doing what I do while they are no longer Mayors. The Police Chief is no longer there as well. 

What does the public expect, (crime wise) when the City of Chicago, (with all the murders and crime) probably has a higher ratio of home ownership vs. rentals then Salisbury's 80% rental units. Open your eyes people! And where will this Mayor be 20 years from now after all the Section 8, (Affordable) Housing is built Downtown. 

Ask yourself this question. Would you or do you feel comfortable/safe as a woman, (or even man) traveling, shopping or visiting Salisbury, Maryland at night? Enough said!

Finally, I have never had a bad conversation with Jake Day. He has never once called me on this matter. 

Progressives, Islamists huddle at Justice Department

Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.

The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.

“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.

The audience of Islamist advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.

Historically black colleges lawsuit has cost Md. millions

BALTIMORE (AP) — A long-running dispute involving Maryland’s historically black colleges has cost the Maryland Higher Education Commission millions.

The Baltimore Sun (http://bsun.md/2l0w2zj ) reports the commission has spent more than $2.2 million defending itself in the lawsuit, according to records provided to the paper under a Public Information Act request. The paper reports that about $925,000 went to law firm Venable LLP and $1.3 million to Zuckerman Spaeder LLP.

Advocates for the state’s historically black colleges sued Maryland more than a decade ago, accusing the state of running a segregated university system.

Bromwell lifts men's lacrosse over No. 6 Gettysburg with overtime tally

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's lacrosse team hosted No. 6 Gettysburg College in the first matchup of top-10 ranked teams in Division III men's lacrosse this season and senior captain Brendan Bromwell scored in overtime to give Salisbury a 10-9 win on Saturday afternoon at Sea Gull Stadium.

Salisbury got the game's first two goals with Josh Melton and Corey Gwin being able to beat Gettysburg keeper Tim Brady who had 14 stops in the contest. For the opening strike at 11:45, Nathan Blondino took his defender behind the cage and received a pick fromCarson Kalama that got the defense out of sorts. In the confusion, Blondino found a cutting Melton who put it upstairs from seven yards out. Melton finished his day with one goal and two assists, while Gwin had two goals in the contest.

The scoring in the first half all came in runs and Gettysburg started its first run of the opening quarter at 9:08 before adding a man up tally with three minutes to play to tie the game at 2-2.

Silberman Attacks Ginsburg's Politicking From The Bench

Judge Laurence Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal this weekend, criticizing his former colleague Ruth Bader Ginsburg for inappropriate interventions in political questions.

Ginsburg and Silberman served together on the D.C. Circuit, widely considered the second most important court in the country, for eight years prior to her elevation to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton. Given their close working relationship, Silberman’s public criticism of the justice is all the more surprising.

His criticism is trained primarily on remarks Ginsburg made during last year’s general election, when she referred to President Donald Trump as a “faker” and mused about moving to New Zealand should he prevail. As of this writing, Justice Ginsburg is still in Washington.

“Her comments were as openly political as any justice has been in my memory — perhaps ever,” he wrote.

Chicago Has Deadliest Day of 2017, Seven Killed, Including Pregnant Woman

After suffering its most dangerous year for decades, Chicago is already on track for an even worse year of bloodshed, murder, and crime as Tuesday counted seven dead in a single day. The victims included a pregnant woman.

Just after 9 PM on February 22, Chicago police found a 20-year-old man and a pregnant woman shot in the city’s Chatham neighborhood, Chicago’s WGN TV reported.

The man was found shot in a parked car and the woman was discovered lying on a sidewalk. The victims were taken to a nearby hospital but both were pronounced dead.

The male shooting victim was a known gang member. The name of the female victim is not being released.

More than 100 headstones damaged at Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA -- More than 100 headstones have been vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, damage discovered less than a week after similar vandalism in Missouri, authorities said.

A man visiting the cemetery called police at 9:40 a.m. Sunday to report that three of his relatives’ headstones had been knocked over and damaged.

“The cemetery was inspected and approximately 100 additional headstones were found to be knocked over,” apparently sometime after dark Saturday, a police spokeswoman said in a statement.

A criminal mischief-institutional vandalism investigation will be conducted by the police Northeast Detectives Division, she said.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia lists Mount Carmel as a Jewish cemetery.

Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon called the report “shocking and a source of worry,” although he added that he had “full confidence” that authorities in the U.S. would be able to catch and punish those responsible.

Arizona Senate Votes To Take Property From Protesters If Demonstration Turns Violent

The Arizona Senate approved a bill Wednesday that makes organizing or merely participating in a protest that ends up violent, regardless of who perpetrated the violence, an offense that could lead to the seizure of property.

The measure would essentially mandate that anyone involved in a protest in which others ultimately engage in violence can be charged with criminal conspiracy or racketeering, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The bill reads:

A person commits riot if, with two or more other persons acting together, such person recklessly uses force or violence or threatens to use force or violence, if such threat is accompanied by immediate power of execution, which either disturbs the public peace or results in damage to the property of another person.

Democrats Facing Elections Refusing to Hold Town Hall Meetings

As the media focuses on a handful of contentious town hall meetings held by Republican senators, several Democrats who face re-election campaigns this year have quietly decided to skip town halls to meet their constituents.

With the Republican Party in the majority, Senate Democrats are keeping a low profile in the hopes of giving voters fewer reasons to vote against them, the Associated Press reports.

State Department Memo on Media Leaks Gets Leaked to Washington Post

A report generated by the State Department on the threat posed by leaks to the media was leaked toWashington Post columnist Josh Rogin, according to his commentary published on Friday.

Rogin, who does not provide the memo or a link to the February 20 memo in his commentary, did give a link to the State Department official who allegedly wrote the memo, Richard Visek, acting legal adviser at the agency.

“The State Department legal office prepared a four-page memo for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warning of the dangers of leaking by State Department employees,” Rogin wrote. “It promptly leaked, to me.”

“That’s only the latest sign that the relationship between the Trump administration political appointees and the State Department professional workforce is still very much a work in progress,” Rogin wrote.

The memo was entitled “SBU: Protecting Privileged Information,” according to Rogin.

A Viewer Writes: Trump's Slogan?

Joe,

This morning I was watching the 1939 John Wayne classic "Stagecoach" and a businessman uttered this: "I have a slogan that should be blazoned on every newspaper in this country: America for the Americans! The government must not interfere with business! Reduce taxes! Our national debt is something shocking. Over one billion dollars a year! What this country needs is a businessman for president!"

Obama Shuts Out White House Reporters Yet Again

White House reporters were barred from a meeting between President Obama and donors for the Democratic House Majority PAC on Wednesday, Politico reported.

Members of the press traveled with the President to the West Coast on Tuesday where he was set to attend the Senate Majority PAC fundraiser. But upon arrival, the media were reportedly left behind and prohibited from getting near the event. On Wednesday, while Obama met with donors from the House Majority PAC, the reporters were not even told where the meeting was taking place.

“We think these fundraisers ought to be open to at least some scrutiny, because the president’s participation in them is fundamentally public in nature,” White House Correspondents’ Association president Christi Parsons said. “Denying access to him in that setting undermines the public’s ability to independently monitor and see what its government is doing.”

'Moonlight' wins best picture after 'La La Land' mistakenly announced


"Moonlight" just won best picture at the 2017 Oscars after "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the winner.

The presenters read "La La Land" right after Emma Stone won best actress for her role in the modern-day musical.

"I wasn't trying to be funny," presenter Warren Beatty later added after the real winner was revealed.

After the cast took the stage, a producer for "La La Land" corrected things and said, "[Actually] 'Moonlight' is the winner ... this is not a joke."

Transgender boy Mack Beggs wins Texas state girls' wrestling title

CYPRESS, Texas -- A 17-year-old transgender boy completed an undefeated season Saturday by winning a controversial Texas state girls' wrestling title in an event clouded by criticism from those who believe the testosterone he's taking as he transitions from female to male created an unfair advantage.

The family of Mack Beggs has said he would rather be wrestling boys, but state policy calls for students to wrestle against the gender listed on their birth certificates. So Beggs, a junior from Euless Trinity, beat Chelsea Sanchez 12-2 in the 110-pound weight class to improve to 56-0 and earn the championship.

Beggs fell to his knees for a moment after the win as a mixture of cheers and boos rained down on him. He then hugged his coach and left the mat.

He had a bit of fun with his fellow wrestlers at the medal ceremony when he counted down from three and all six of the top finishers posed by doing a dab on the medal stand.

NY Times Reporter Keeps Interrupting Sean Spicer. So the Press Sec. Fires Back with a Lesson in Manners

As has been the case since White House press secretary Sean Spicer first stepped behind the podium in the White House briefing room, Thursday's briefing was a raucous event.

As Spicer called on Bloomberg White House correspondent Shannon Pettypiece, New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush interrupted, continuing to yell out a question. Spicer was having exactly none of it.

As a Twitter user said of Thrush:
Spicer put Thrush's interruption in perspective:

“Glenn, this isn't a TV program. You don't just get to yell out questions. We're gonna raise our hand like big boys and girls. [Thrush continued to interrupt] Because it's not your job to just yell out questions. Shannon, please go.”

Both Spicer and Thrush were portrayed in a now-famous “Saturday Night” Live skit from early February, in which Spicer — mercilessly portrayed by Melissa McCarthy — put Thrush in his place: “Glenn Thrush, New York Times, boo...”

Local Law Enforcement Covering Up Major Crime: How Many Women Will Get RAPED Before They'll Finally Tell You About It


Editors Notes: This is the third message/source I have received on this exact matter, so it's REAL. I have been told there may have been some FIFTEEN rapes so far from Pocomoke to Delmar, yet no one is hearing about them, HAVE YOU?



So here's how I feel about this. I could give a rats a$$ about allegedly impeding on their what, 15th investigation, all of which we have not heard about. Typical of law enforcement on the Eastern Shore, cover it up and in time everyone will forget about it. NOT when it comes to women and their safety! Or shall I say the lack thereof!

What you are about to read is extremely disturbing. Ladies, you need to make damn sure your vehicle doors are LOCKED at all times. In fact, until this group is caught, I'd warn that every women traveling between Pocomoke and Delmar find a male escort to travel with them and SHAME on local Law Enforcement not suggesting the same. 

More to come at the end...

Last Sunday, a woman went to Exxon Punkin Square & was kidnapped by 4 black men around 5:30 p.m. (assumed black as all were totally covered with black including gloves & they talked about "Homeboys.)
They had guns.

As she pulled out of the station at the end of that little street before turning right, 1 man jumped in drivers side & hit her with a gun.

Then a second man got in riders side & hit her twice with a gun then put a bag over her head & tied it around her neck. Two other men got in the back two side doors of her van. They kept hitting her. 


They raped her & left her for dead out on Rt. 50 near Wor-Wic. 

They took her coat & had cut all of her clothes up. She woke up at dawn, was able to untie the knots around her neck. She could see her van sitting on the side of the road WITH ALL 4 DOORS OPEN.

She stumbled to the car... cars went by her & never tried to help her. She found the keys. They broke her glasses in half & broke her cell phone. They left her handbag but took the $150 she had in a bank envelop & her wallet. They left her paycheck in the bank envelop.

She drove home, they took her to the hospital where she stayed overnight. She was so badly beaten both eyes were closed & totally black & blue from head to toe. They hit her so many times on her head that she has blood clots all over it.

Salisbury Police area. YUK!!! However 4 Detectives have been working on this case with her & have been helpful.

They said it was a professional job.

I called the Salisbury Police & asked why it wasn't in the paper. They told me with an ongoing investigation it could hamper progress.

However, they told her she is the 15th VICTIM. Two in Delaware & the others around this area. One woman in DE is still in the hospital.


Why has this not been put in the paper to warn people to lock their car doors?

The detective assured her yesterday (Friday) that he was going to do something about publication.

She met him at Salisbury Police Barracks but the other times at her home.

They really thought she was dead but GOD saved her for her grandson she is raising. His father was killed in car accident in the summer.

Notes: Now look Ladies, only travel in pairs to the store. Obviously this is a very serious matter and as I have stated above, I have multiple sources telling me the same story over and over again. 

As for Law Enforcement, SHAME ON YOU! This is about giving the heads up to women being RAPED and assaulted. FIFTEEN, SERIOUSLY? And you wonder WHY so many Americans have become disrespectful towards Police Officers? One, maybe, but FIFTEEN and you're still keeping your mouths shut? Makes me sick to my stomach! 

Your Boy Mayor obviously doesn't want you to know and he is one of the Liberals running around saying SBYNews doesn't get anywhere near the amount of hits I claim we do. Let's see how you feel about my HITS after the public gets their hands on your crime cover ups today.

UPDATE: Another source said: Joe, I have something you need to check out. My wife works with a lady who last weekend was carjacked in Salisbury on route 50 and the road that goes to the Exon and k-mart. 4 men standing at that intersection snatched open her car door jumped in took over the car beat her raped her left her on the side of road and took her car. the public has heard nothing in the news about this no warnings no nothing. I also have been told by another source that there have been 11 such incidents from Delmar to Princess Ann can you check it out. I have been told that it is being kept out of the news for a reason?

UPDATE #2: Salisbury News follows the weekly SPD calls for service regularly. We found it quite interesting this week that the SPD did NOT publish their calls for service, how convenient HERE. We did not pick up on the rape because they didn't publish it.

Go HERE as well.

President Trump’s budget outline calls for a surge in military spending and sharp cuts to nondefense agencies, including the E.P.A.

President Trump will instruct federal agencies on Monday to assemble a budget for the coming fiscal year that would include sharp increases in Defense Department spending; major cuts to other agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency; and no reductions to the largest entitlement programs, Social Security and Medicare, according to four senior administration officials.

The outline, drafted by Office of Management and Budget director, Mick Mulvaney, is the first volley to the federal agencies.

What's the Deal with the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce?

By Thornton Crowe

Historically, America was founded by small business owners who came together to form communities. Entrepreneurs were the foundation of our early society and, through their growth, they made our country the land of free enterprise, bursting with hope and prosperity.

With all the scuffle lately about the local government's issues, one local agency seems to not weighed in publicly on the problems Salisbury faces is the Chamber of Commerce.

Much of the Eastern Shore is based in agriculture regardless of what the local bourgeois would have you believe. The white collar professions on the shore are relegated mostly to three professions: doctors, lawyers and accountants. However, with so many of them in the Salisbury area, most are not listed with the Chamber.

Furthermore, it seems they don't really promote the small business community as we watch one by one, businesses closing every week. I've known many people who have operated businesses here for years that have never received so much as a phone call from them.

Suspiciously, the Chamber doesn't seem to have any proclivities with downtown turning into a Section 8 slum, driving what few businesses are there, out of the area. They have remained relatively silent about the safety and parking issues brought about by Mayor Jake Day's big plan for the new skid row planned for three parking lots, which would bring more money to the city if they were business-driven rather than low income housing.

Now, we have a President who promotes business, yet our local Chamber has failed to tap into this new enthusiasm towards American Business. In fact, from their actions during the general election, where they promoted the candidate who had no intention of supporting small business and wanted to crush it further with more stifling regulations. Since her loss in November, it seems they've packed up their toys and gone home.

One has to wonder why the Chamber doesn't seem to be interested in growing our local economy through encouraging new business creation and growth. While their site boasts of small business loans for women-owned business and other tools, they don't seem to be big on advertising - which is odd considering their membership fees are steep enough to afford more effective marketing strategies.

While they currently scout for a new CEO, it doesn't appear they're thinking outside-the-box by going with candidates that aren't already in their clique. They seem to be looking towards getting a good-ole-boy-network player, who will just carry on the same failed policies that have led to Salisbury having more closures than grand openings.

Additionally, by their silence on local issues like the downtown plan, it would seem the Chamber is complicit with the downward spiral the city has experienced for the last couple of decades. Therefore, are they, like City Hall, another organization bent on destroying any semblance of what used to make Salisbury a palpable place to work and raise a family? 

One would think it would be in the their best interest to boost the local business because it brings more money into Salisbury instead of eliminating it but perhaps I hold a misconception of what exactly the Chamber of Commerce's mission is really all about. For all the inner-clique, it might as well be a downtown annex for the old Green Hill Country Club circuit...

What say you?

BREAKING NEWS: Major Shake Up At Fire Station #1, Volunteers to Breakout On Their Own

Remember When Salisbury Hired 12 New Firefighters Through A Grant A Few Years Ago?

The next morning, (after the Council agreed to hire these Firefighters) many of the Firefighters were laughing at all of us. Why, because they stood in front of the City Council and said, we'll have at least 12 people eligible for retirement and the new 12 will be needed to fill their spots. The next morning they laughed and stated, they may be eligible but NONE of them can afford to retire. 

Sunday we published a Press Release from the City showing they wanted $140,000.00 placed into the upcoming budget for four more Firefighters. What they DIDN'T tell you, (conveniently) is the fact that they are also proposing to bring in yet ANOTHER 16 Firefighters on yet another grant, in which the City will have to pay for these full time Firefighters after the grant is over, just like they had to do with the other 12 a few years ago.

You see Ladies & Gentlemen, this is yet again another reason why SBYNews is so important. We expose what no other media source will do. We give you the heads up well before a vote is cast. You now know the funding the Mayor and Council want should be dumped immediately, unless you really want to pay out for an additional 20 Firefighters, averaging some $35,000.00 per person, per year in salary alone. Then add healthcare and disability liability.

I also came to learn they want more Fire Trucks. The big question is, will you be going to tonight's Council Meeting to challenge your Mayor and Council? Be very careful how the Fire Department words it this time.

It's No Wonder Wicomico County Is Asking For An Assistant Internal Auditor


On Tuesday the Wicomico County Council met with Sheriff's Department representatives at the Council Meeting. Their intent was to ask the Council to approve the $66,000.00 of drug money they had collected over time. 

The Sheriff's Department stated that they wanted to use the funds to pay for the 4 Harley Davidson Motorcycles that were currently in the Shop having equipment installed.

Mark Kilmer was very quick to start questioning, you already had tens of thousands of dollars worth of things done to these Harley's, where did you get the funds. Their response, drug money.

Mark said, wait a minute. You are here right now asking IF we'll give you those funds, it hasn't been approved or allocated for these motorcycles. He admitted they'd probably vote yes to give them the funds but... The Sheriff's Department admitted that they used funds allocated and approved by the Council for equipment for their new CARS but that the company was delayed, so they used the money on the Motorcycles instead. 

The point here is, the Sheriff's Department illegally spent money on Motorcycles with funds meant to pay for something else and the Council had not approved anything to do with these Motorcycles. 

While I firmly disagree that the County needs an Assistant Auditor, if the Sheriff's Department can break the law and misuse funds, maybe they were right after all. Or at least the County's Auditor should be investigating this matter, since the Council is claiming they're finding all kinds of fraud in the Wicomico County Government and an assistant is necessary, their words, not mine.

Now I don't care what the Sheriff's Department says to defend this, they were caught red handed, thanks to Mark Kilmer. Go back and watch the PAC 14 video and see it for yourself.   Fast forward to 1:15:44 when the Sheriff's department speaks to the County Council about motorcycles

BREAKING: Salisbury Maryland A Sanctuary City?

Molly Likovich
February 20 at 6:42pm

The Salisbury Misfits has two main goals to achieve for the undetermined future and they are:


1. Make Salisbury a Sanctuary City

2. Set up an online campaign (like HeForShe or Lumos) to raise money and awareness for immigrant rights

If we spread the world and work hard, we have the chance to become a non-profit and really affect change here on the shore. I will be meeting with a group of fellow activists next week to start making set plans for how to achieve these main two goals. Will keep you informed on the progress and ways you can help in your everyday lives. As John Wright said, 'We must not rest.'


John Wright I'm Vic-chair of the City of Salisbury's Human Rights Advisory Committee. Making Salisbury a Sanctuary City was on our last meting agenda. We are currently working with the City Council to see if/how this might happen!

Uh Oh, Molly Caught Lying Yet Again According To A Viewers Research/Comment

People are not "nominated" for the AWP National Poetry Award, they submit their work for consideration. One winner is chosen annually for the $6500 scholarship prize. There are also three $500 "scholarships" to attend writing workshops and the like held by AWP, those monies held by AWP as down payments to attend. Each poetry submission requires a $10 "reading fee". There is no limit to the number of submissions, so long as the $10 check accompanies each.

It appears that this young woman sent one or more submissions and a $10 check for each one to AWP to enter the competition, and was not one of those chosen by the organization for further consideration in that given year.

Hats off to her for joining the competition, but not so much for claiming that her work was "nominated" for anything, because it wasn't.

Add this to her claim of being a writer for NPR (later withdrawn as a "typographical error",) and it's clear that she has some issues with telling the truth without being closely monitored by those who expect it.

President Trump Overshadows Magical Molly!

By Thornton Crowe

While Magical Molly and her posse were participating in flowery speeches based on Media generated fodder, down in Florida, something more significant was occurring elsewhere in the country, which also warrants attention.

President Trump had his first progress briefing with his real bosses: The American People

In Melbourne, Florida, many people like Gene Huber, were on the scene at 4am for the slated 6pm speech by the President. Until yesterday, no one knew who he was but after the speech, the world knew because he spoke at the rally and as Trump stated, "A star was born."

Mr. Huber and every other American - whether they're with him or not - will soon enjoy a robust economy that is slowly awakening after an eight-plus-year hiatus. And it's not everyday (if ever) that we've seen a president randomly pick anyone out of the crowd to come up and speak without knowing what they're going to say in advance. But, then again, Donald Trump is no typical president which, is one of the big reasons why he won!

Man "Beaten To A Pulp" In Salisbury Coming From City Council Meeting

Yesterday we published a story where we were told by a viewer that Mr. Richard Parsons had been mugged. It wasn't actually a mugging, he was simply brutally attacked and beaten, I've been asked not to give details of his injuries. I will say however our reliable source stated "he was beaten to a pulp." 

Mr. Parsons had attended last Monday's City Council Meeting and was walking through the Downtown Plaza and then down Fitzwater Street where he was attacked at 1100 Parsons Road. This occurred some time between 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm. 

If ANYONE witnessed what happened, please make contact with the Salisbury Police Department and help them solve this horrific crime. Again, this happened Monday night. 

Petition: Put Salisbury Super Pet store Out of Business


One specific Salisbury Super Pet store, like many pet stores, is mistreating their animals by not providing proper medical examination and by ignoring the source their puppies come from (Hunte puppy mill was the last name i saw on breeder sheet). Many, if not all, are malnourished and ill that come from puppy mills. Many consumers have complaints about the pet stores quality of product/service, as well. After long research and investigation into the pet store, it has come to the attention of myself and many people that it would be best to revoke this store owner's license and shut his horrible business down. These animals do not deserve to live in agony hoping that someone pays a fortune to buy them and further pay their costly vet bills. Too many people and animals have been subjected to disturbing issues that have stemmed from this business and its apathetic owner.

By taking this action, many animals' lives will be spared the torture of crowded cages and living in their own waste.

Yeah, it may be distributed from Salisbury, Maryland but it is a "product of Indonesia". That's right, pictures don't lie.

Salisbury Fire Department Station 1 & Mayor In Damage Control Mode



The City of Salisbury's Mayor Jake Day is currently holding a press conference in front of Station 1 on Beaglin Park Drive. I mean, what can they say. The Wife has left and the divorce papers have been filed. Typical of Liberals Leadership, the men won't let the Volunteers in to get what is rightfully theirs. More to come...

When A Man Is Brutally Beaten Coming From A City Council Meeting, Is This What You'd Expect From The SPD?

Tuesday's County Council Meeting, More Drama, Drama, Drama!

I was looking over Tuesday’s County Council agenda and I noticed an Introduction to Legislative Bill 2017-02, An Act to amend the Wicomico County Classification and Pay Plan by establishing a certain class title and pay grade in the County Council Office – Mr. Steve Roser, Internal Auditor. As this summary did peak my curiosity, I decided to further investigate by looking over the Council’s briefing book published on the County’s website. I came across a 371 page document and did not find the topic until page 316 out of 371. I was thinking, what are they trying to hide? It was like adding pork to a bill. No one will read the whole document to find out. But, I did learn that this County Council loves to grow government by adding a new position. I immediately thought, is this really a necessary position?

How has the County Council grown government? Answer, having their own County Council Attorney that resulted in an inflation of the County Council’s 2017 budget. In addition to massive pay raises to the Council staff they including the Internal Auditor himself with over $20,000.00 in raises since he started this new position.

Another question is this legislative bill and introduction without an official approval? Look at legislative bill 2017-01, An act to amend the County Code, Chapter 414, titled “Fees” Section 141-4, titled “Department of Public Works” to adjust the per ton tipping fee for commercial brush/yard waste and to establish rates for other items. (That was a mouth full) It is my understanding that the County Council made the error of not properly approving the Legislative Bill and questioned Mr. Culver on their own error. Why would the County Council try to belittle and embarrass the County Executive on such simple matters when the Council and public had no problem with the proposal? At the last minute Cannon pulls a power play over Culver without validity. It seems as if every time Culver tries to move the County forward in a conservative direction, Cannon and Council tear him down.

What blows me away is that this Council is 6 to 1 Republican. Watching this Council is like growing up in a dysfunctional family and “Dad” Culver is like Father Knows Best. He is not out to hurt anyone!

On another note, ethically, how can Mike Lewis officiate John Cannon’s wedding when John Cannon, (Council President for Wicomico County) who approves the Sheriff’s Department’s budget? Now, I am not saying this is unethical but it is damn close. The pictures are all over Facebook.

Perhaps we will see many of you at Tuesday’s 10:00 a.m. Council Meeting to support the man you elected to lead Wicomico County, Bob Culver.

Md. residents hiding in homes in fear of immigration sweeps

LANGLEY PARK, MD (WUSA9) - Residents of this heavily immigrant community outside Washington now report people are hiding in their homes at night, and some children are being kept home from school for fear of immigration enforcement sweeps that could break up families.

“They stay home at night. It’s just bad,” said Melissa Garcia.

A 12-year old student at the Silver Spring International School and her uncle claim some students are staying away from school while others are refusing to recite the “Pledge of Allegiance”.

“They’re afraid they might get deported or something like that,” said 7th grader Melissa Muganda, whose mother is an immigrant from Tanzania.
