Viewer Opinion: Salisbury's Acme

What a disaster. While the store is nice enough looking, the prices are out of this world. Giant was much cheaper and the price point was on line with Walmart. Now days after the Acme invasion, most people are going to the Walmarts instead of the over-priced Acme.

Someone said Acme has been here twice before and failed both times. I wonder why?

Some prices are a whole $4 more than Walmart, so it's worth the time to go there instead of Acme. In an economy like what we have right now, was this really a smart move?

Proof: The other night at 7:00pm, Acme was practically empty. I didn't even have a problem going to a cashier. No lines. I asked her if she had gotten complaints about the prices and she stated, "A lot."

I was also told no rewards card, no gas discounts. What's the point of wasting your money when you can go up the road and buy more for less?

Heard they replaced the Superfresh in West Ocean City, too. Are the prices as high there as they are in Salisbury? What am I saying? They're probably higher.

Giant had a good run in Salisbury. Now the bet is, how long will it be when this Acme shuts down like the two others before? Six months? A year?

Marlins’ Jose Fernandez killed in Miami boating accident

Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez, a Cuban defector who swiftly became one of the brightest young stars in baseball, died early Sunday following a boating accident according to several reports. He was 24.

The Marlins canceled Sunday’s scheduled game against the Atlanta Braves.

The Associated Press reported that the U.S. Coast guard said Fernandez was one of three people killed in an accident in Miami Beach. Details weren’t immediately available, but the incident is believed to have occurred around 3 a.m. EDT, involving a 30-foot boat.According to the Miami Herald, emergency workers continued to search for more victims near Government Cut and South Pointe Park.

Rounding Corners...

As we get closer to Election Day, as with many years before, we are going to be hit with such propaganda to the likes unlike we've ever seen.

There's no disputing, given her criminality and corruption, Hillary Clinton is the most unpopular candidate we've ever seen in our lifetime. She has a long, shrouded past in subverting and diverting to the point she makes Oscar winning actors look weak. She's a professional propagandist with a reputation steep in lying and deception.

That being said, the Left - utilizing all the millions raised from Warren Buffett, George Soros and the Koch Brothers - will be to divert and subvert against the anti-globalism tenor of today's voting climate. They don't want you to not vote for their favorite cause - self-enrichment through the yard sale of America. And it's not just the Left either - it's the Right Establishment whom rally to keep the myths alive about Trump. He threatens them all. They can't run the same table when he becomes president. A table we all want destroyed much like they want to destroy America.

Like Britain last June, we are not for sale. America's bargain basement part sale is closed for business - once and for all.

Our own emancipation from the proposed slavery of TPP and TiSA looms in our foregrounds - along with every aspect of our American life that offends few but is made to seem like it offends all by Social Justice profiteers like those stated above.

The real deal is Donald Trump scares the hell out of them - hence, why the Left is desperate to take away anything regarding his message of making America first and raising the bar back to prosperity for Americans.

Fact is, the world, on a whole, it much weaker when America is weak, too. Weakened countries leave the globe ripe for the picking when it comes to the globalists' demagoguery.

We can see evidence of this in the Corporate and MSM treason perpetrated everyday in every medium known to man. They are working hard to divert voters and give us new red shiny lights and whistles to whisk us away from the task at hand: Saving America from the brink of extinction.

Wake up, America. This isn't about police brutality, racism, sexism, or any of the other 'isms' Clinton called out during her infamous turret moment where everyone was proclaimed as an irredeemable deplorable in the Trump basket. She knows Trump supporters aren't any of those things - no, far from it.

We're WORSE! We want to save the country from the elite profiteers bent on stripping her for parts and selling her off piece by piece.

As Americans, it's unAmerican to allow this to happen! It's time to put an end to this charade and begin to rebuild our country from it's ideological war-torn state to the country we inherited from our ancestors who had a dream and made it happen!

Keep your eyes on the prize! Don't fall for the fodder of those who want to enslave us all!

Another Downtown Riverfront Lot In Salisbury Sold For Affordable Housing

Do you support Mayor Jake Day and the City Council selling off another Riverfront parking lot for affordable housing?

I have been preaching for years that Salisbury is completely overloaded with affordable housing while your elected officials denied these properties were in fact sold for such projects. Rivers Edge is yet another major project that turned over to affordable housing. 

Millions of taxpayer dollars are being spent to revitalize Downtown while your Liberal representatives quietly sell off taxpayer owned, (and valuable) lots for low income residents. 

All you have to do is look at the current complexes that had been built for what they called back in the day, section 8 housing, same thing. Some are already being torn down and now being rebuilt, as if they didn't learn what these projects deliver. 

Politicians pound their chest showing drawing renditions of these beautiful projects and push to get everyone excited about revitalization. What they NEVER show you is what these past projects look like TODAY. They also do NOT tell you the crime rates and calls for service in these areas. 

Yeah, rather then doing the hard work to garnish outside interest to rebuild the Downtown area, run to companies tied to the government and destroy your communities. 

Yeah, it truly was your election to lose Salisbury.

Ethical Or Unethical, Ocean City Mayor Uses Official Facebook Page To Sell Real Estate

It has come to our attention that Mayor Rick Meehan is using his official Ocean City Facebook page to sell real estate. Some have stated how unfair this is on other hard working real estate agents. Others have flat out stated this is completely unethical.

What Have You Got To Lose?

By Thornton Crowe

What has the Democrats done for the Black Community lately?

We've heard Donald Trump ask this question with much frequency lately and, the fact is, he has a point!

Many Black Communities throughout the country are contemplating this question as the inner cities are deteriorating and welfare numbers continue to rise -- even in Salisbury. The truth is, Democrats have had a long history of making many promises to garner votes but after the election, there is no honeymoon - it goes straight to bust. So why does Black America continue to vote for them?

It's no secret - Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican - as well as local hero, Harriet Tubman. A few months ago, here on Salisbury News, a quote from Malcolm X was published, showing his disdain for the Liberals in America.

President Lyndon Johnson, after signing the Civil Rights bill in 1964, stated he would have them voting for Democrats for the next two hundred years. Could this be the reason?

How Would You Feel About This?

George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary

Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys.

Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

On Monday, Townsend posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: "The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!”


Good for Jerry Jones All NFL owners should do this

Jerry Jones went into the locker room before the Cowboys Giants game yesterday. He looked around at all the young men and addressed them as a group. “Regardless of your personal opinions, this is a sacred day that we recognize the sacrifice and pain that so many have endured. When the National Anthem is played by a lone trumpet player in a few minutes you WILL stand and you WILL put your hand over your hearts.” Jerry waited a second and made eye contact with several players to make sure his words had sunk in. He knew he had there undivided attention and proceeded. “You gentlemen are world class athletes, but you are also actors. You perform on a stage that is 100 yards long. Today, you play the role of a patriotic super hero. You will play this role well because you know that millions of children will be watching and looking at your example.” Then his inner fire started to shine through as he said quietly “but most of all I want you to remember, you are the actors, but this is MY stage and you will play the role I tell you to.”
Every young man on the Dallas Cowboys understands that there is a time and place to express your opinion. Maybe when honoring the fallen is not the right time to give the wrong impression to millions of fans.

Teens 'maced, robbed and stabbed elderly man in a brutal Baltimore attack that was streamed LIVE on Facebook'

Police in Baltimore have arrested two teenagers who they say took part in a vicious assault that was live streamed on Facebook showing an elderly man being maced, stabbed and robbed in a city park.

The incident took place on September 12 in Wyman Park Dell, and three days later investigators apprehended two of the suspects in the attack, identified as Zannay Laws and Dakei Perry, both 18 years old.

As of Monday afternoon, police were still looking for two additional suspects in the stabbing and robbery.

Franchot Says Schools Without A/C is a Civil Rights Issue

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– State Comptroller Peter Franchot and the NAACP sent a letter to the Department of Justice arguing that many of the schools without air conditioning in low income communities is a civil rights issue.

50,000 area kids are going to class in schools without air conditioning. Skyrocketing temperatures inside area classrooms without air conditioning. Now the state comptroller is asking the feds to step in.

“It’s a health issue, it’s a safety issue,” said Franchot.

He and the NAACP called the lack of air conditioning a “blatant neglect of students civil rights.”


Baseball Catcher Suspended For Tweets Against Black Lives Matter

The first amendment rights apply to Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand for the national anthem, but it hasn’t worked for a baseball catcher who spoke out against the Black Lives Matter riotings.

Steve Clevenger, a backup catcher for the Seattle Mariners, has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season over remarks he made on Twitter this week. He was informed Friday of the suspension.

“Black people beating whites when a thug got shot holding a gun by a black officer haha (expletive) cracks me up! Keep kneeling for the Anthem!” one of Clevenger’s tweets read.

“BLM is pathetic once again! Obama you are pathetic once again! Everyone involved should be locked behind bars like animals!” another tweet read.
Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said, “The Seattle Mariners are very disappointed at the tweets posted on Steve Clevenger’s account. While he is certainly free to express himself, his tweets do not in any way represent the opinions of the Seattle Mariners. We strongly disagree with the language and tone of his comments. As soon as we became aware of the tweets posted by Steve yesterday we began to examine all of our options in regard to his standing on the team.”


Dukes of Hazzard Star Exposes LA Flood Cleanup After 5 Weeks

A Facebook Live video Saturday morning by John Schneider, who played “Bo Duke” on Dukes of Hazzard, is going viral.

The video is a drive-through of neighborhoods in Louisiana which were devastated by the flood five weeks ago. Home after home after home still has a mountain of trash piled in front of it, just waiting for clean-up crews to come and remove. Schneider said thankfully you can only see the video, and can’t smell the stench.

He says he wanted to show Americans just how much “help” the Obama administration has provided to Louisianans whose homes were ruined – some beyond repair – by the flood. Most people just want the destroyed furniture and rotten sheetrock hauled away so they can clean up their neighborhoods and start rebuilding their lives.


BREAKING NEWS: Ted Cruz endorses Donald Trump for president

WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - Two months after famously refusing to endorse Donald Trump for president at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced Friday that he is supporting the Republican nominee.

"After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz wrote in a lengthy Facebook post laying out his reasoning.

Cruz listed several reasons he believes Trump is preferable to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, including national security and the direction of the Supreme Court.

"Our country is in crisis," he said. "Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way."


Man dies, days after fight with police; lawyer blames cops

MIDDLE RIVER, Md. (AP) — A black man died three days after he called police to his suburban Baltimore home during an outburst of strange behavior and was punched in the face and held to the ground by officers, police and relatives said.

Tawon Boyd, 21, died Wednesday after spending three days in a hospital following the confrontation with officers Sunday morning outside his home in Middle River. Baltimore County police said in a statement that he became aggressive with officers, who used physical force to subdue him.

“They kept on grabbing on him and holding him down, and he started screaming, ‘Grandma, Grandma, they’re going to kill me,'” Linda Burch, Boyd’s grandmother, told The Associated Press. Burch, 51, had been staying with her grandson and witnessed the confrontation across the street from his home.

Muslim Woman Unleashes Nasty Surprise At Man When She Sees His Shirt

High on immigrant entitlement, a Muslim woman was at school when a white guy walked on campus, and she didn’t like what she saw. With one look at what was on his t-shirt, she made a disgusting demand before unleashing a nasty surprise on the man who had the perfect response.

Since much of the Muslim woman is concealed by her pink hijab, her identity is not known, in addition to the fact that she didn’t feel that she needed to give anyone her name. Enjoying a free education and all the advantages of being in a country that took in far too many Muslims, she now feels like she can bark orders around at white citizens who were there before she was.

As soon as she saw a former Curtin University student walk onto campus in Perth, Australia, she told him to “f*ck off” and that he had no right to be there, not because she knew him personally, rather it was one name on his shirt that set her off. Dennis Huts had an appointment at his alma mater but was instead met with a vile rant from this mysterious Muslim woman who didn’t like that he was supporting a right-wing politician with his shirt, who is adamant about ending the Muslim immigration into Australia.

Tulsa Police Officer Charged in Man’s Death

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Prosecutors in Tulsa, Oklahoma, charged a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man on a city street with first-degree manslaughter Thursday.

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler filed the charges against officer Betty Shelby, who shot and killed 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16. Dashcam and aerial footage of the shooting and its aftermath showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby with his arms in the air.

The footage does not offer a clear view of when Shelby fired the single shot that killed Crutcher. Her attorney has said Crutcher was not following police commands and that Shelby opened fire when the man began to reach into his SUV window.

But Crutcher’s family immediately discounted that claim, saying the father of four posed no threat to the officers, and police said Crutcher did not have gun on him or in his vehicle.

VIDEO:Hagerstown girl, 15, pepper sprayed, charged after bike crash

HAGERSTOWN — Police pepper-sprayed a 15-year-old girl and charged her as a juvenile with assault and disorderly conduct after her bicycle hit a car, prompting disagreement Wednesday about whether the officers acted properly.

Hagerstown Police Capt. Paul Kifer said the white officer who arrested the mixed-race girl had to subdue her with chemical spray to get her into a cruiser for a ride to the police station Sunday.

Kifer said the girl had refused to cooperate with police trying to question her about the accident and find a parent to authorize her refusal to receive medical treatment from paramedics on the scene.

“The investigation had to be done,” Kifer said. He said that while she appeared uninjured, police also wanted to make sure the girl wasn’t hurt and find out who she was.


SUV Plows Over Black Lives Matter Protestors

There are massive Black Lives Matter protests happening all over the country today. The one on the campus of Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti, shut down roads and disrupted the flow of traffic on campus. And then it turned chaotic.

The video below shows a small SUV driving through the mass of protestors. This story is just breaking, so much of the information is still unknown, but it appears that the driver, frustrated, drove over protestors to get through the roadblock.

While some of the protests today are in response to shootings in Charlotte and Tulsa, this one was in response to something much closer to home. Racist graffiti had been painted on the side of a women’s center on the EMU campus.

Marilyn Mosby to students: No convictions in Freddie Gray case, but justice still prevailed

Two months after Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby dropped charges against the remaining police officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, she told a group of students Monday that "justice has still prevailed."

While none of the six officers she charged was convicted, the city's top prosecutor told a crowd at Baltimore City Community College the case has helped to fuel reforms — such as the launch of the Police Department's body camera program and the use of cameras inside all police vans.

"What is now guaranteed is that what happened to him will never take place in the city of Baltimore again as a result of those charges," she said.

Mosby spoke at a Constitution Day event at the college's main campus on Liberty Heights Avenue.

Medical Marijuana Company Battles State’s Cannabis Commission

BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ)– A Maryland company is taking legal action against the state’s cannabis commission, claiming they were robbed of their right to become one of the state’s first licensed medical marijuana companies.

GTI Maryland is accusing the commission of illegally taking them off the list of 15 companies that had initially been approved for growing licenses. Now they’re demanding answers.

WJZ reached out to the cannabis commission and they told WJZ they can’t comment on pending litigation.

The lawsuit filed in Baltimore City circuit court demands GTI’s place in the top 15 to be restored immediately. The company is now fighting to fix what they’re calling an injustice to patients.

Stealing From Wal-Mart Is Not a Crime, UW Relations Director Declares

Everett D. Mitchell is the Director of Community Relations at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is also an attorney, pastor, and community leader.

At a recent panel discussing "Best Policing Practices," Mitchell said that police should stop prosecuting individuals who shoplift from Wal-Mart and Target.

His reasoning? He simply does not believe that police have any justification to engage in policing practices with thieves who steal from Wal-Mart or Target because they are big box stores with insurance:

"I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior."

He begins his speech by advocating legal relativism - the notion that communities should decide for themselves which laws be enforced and which laws are not in order to better recognize what safety means for the specific community.

Does Wal-Mart get a say in which laws are enforced, as well Mr. Mitchell? They are, after all, in the community as well.

Most of a Md. high school football team kneels during anthem

DAMASCUS, Md. (AP) — A group of high school football players in Maryland is emulating 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Most of the Watkins Mill High School football team knelt during the national anthem Friday before kickoff against Damascus High School in Montgomery County. Players on the team also took a knee last week.

Watkins Mill High School’s head coach, Michael Brown, chose to stand, but he says he cannot tell his players either they have to stand or kneel.

Trump Blames Obama For Charlotte Violence: "The Level Of Hatred... Starts With Leadership"

With The White House desperately calling for "peaceful protest" in Charlotte, the Justice Department urging "peacefulprotest" and the need to "build trust," and Hillary Clinton asking for "peace" saying the deaths of black men is "unbearable," the Democrat public relations machine is in full swing as riots continue. Donald Trump, however, took a different angle. As opposed to clinging to politically correct and meaningless one-liners, Trump pointed the finger for this turmoil at President Obama (and Hillary) exclaiming: “You look at the level of hatred... the rocks being thrown and everything happening. It’s so sad to see. You know, this is the United States of America. I mean... it starts with leadership.”

“I mean, it’s a terrible thing that we’re witnessing. You’re seeing it. I'm seeing it, and you look at what went on last night in Charlotte — a great place — and you just see it.”

As Politico reports, Donald Trump on Thursday subtly pinned the blame for the turmoil in Charlotte, North Carolina, on President Barack Obama, suggesting that the violent protests there highlight a racial divide in America that Obama has failed to mend as president.

A diabetic fired over $1.69 (plus tax) drink and Dollar General must now pay her $277,656.

Jury in EEOC Suit Says Dollar General Must Pay Former Employee Over $277,565 For Disability Discrimination

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A federal jury has found in favor of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in a federal disability discrimination lawsuit against the retail giant Dollar General, the federal agency announced today. EEOC had charged Dollar General with firing a cashier at its Maryville, Tenn., store because of her need to treat her diabetes.

According to EEOC's suit, the cashier, an insulin-dependent diabetic, told her supervisor she was a diabetic and requested on several occasions that her supervisor allow her to keep juice near the register to prevent a hypoglycemic attack. At trial, the cashier testified that her supervisor told her that Dollar General did not allow employees to keep food or drink near the register. Although Dollar General had an accommodation policy that could have allowed the cashier to keep juice near the register, the employees, including management at the Maryville store, did not know about the policy.

While alone in the store one day, the cashier drank orange juice prior to purchase, in violation of Dollar General's "grazing" policy, in response to symptoms of a hypoglycemic attack and to protect the store. As soon as the medical emergency passed, the cashier paid for the bottle of orange juice that cost $1.69 plus tax. Later, the district manager and loss prevention manager appeared in the store to address inventory shrinkage and fired the cashier after she admitted to drinking orange juice prior to purchase. The store fired the emp­loyee even though it knew she drank the orange juice because of her diabetes and that she had requested to keep juice near the register.

EEOC filed suit (Civil Action No.3:14-CV-441) in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee) against Dolgencorp, LLC, dba Dollar General Corporation, on Sept. 23, 2014, after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process. The discrimination victim joined the suit as a plaintiff in her own personal lawsuit on Dec. 18, 2014.

The jury returned a verdict on Friday afternoon for EEOC and the victim, awarding the former cashier $27,565 in back pay and $250,000 in compensatory damages.

JUST IN: Suspect arrested in Cascade Mall shooting; attack may have been random

BURLINGTON, Wash. -- A 20-year-old Oak Harbor, Wash., man was arrested Saturday in the shooting at a Burlington mall that left five people dead.

The man was arrested in Oak Harbor before 7 p.m. Saturday, about 24 hours after the shooting at Cascade Mall that left four females and one male dead.

A highly-placed source tells KING 5 News that there is no apparent connection between the suspect and the victims, leading to the possibility this was a random attack.

The Charlotte Riots: What They Are Not Telling You

As America awaits to see if Charlotte will burn for the third consecutive night, Paul Joseph Watson points out something troubling: thugs burned down a city because a black cop shot someone, yet meanwhile the mainstream media spun it, or at least tried, as as "peaceful protest." There is just one problem: violent criminals looting, attacking bystanders, attacking journalists, setting fires, smashing up cars, smashing up businesses and shooting at each other is not the a "peaceful protest."

And with all of these activities having been documented in the clip below, it is worth pointing out that:
Stealing and looting cash registers from local businesses is not a legitimate form of protest
A “protester” shooting another “protester” is not a legitimate form of protest.
Physically attacking reporters is not a legitimate form of protest.
Throwing rocks off bridges at passing vehicles full of families is not a legitimate form of protest
Beating up innocent people in parking lots because they’re white is not a legitimate form of protest.
Smashing up apartment windows where black people live to “protest” in favor of ‘Black Lives Matter’ is not a legitimate form of protest.
Trashing your own neighborhood is not a legitimate form of protest.
Looting the Charlotte Hornets team store so you can steal basketball merchandise is not a legitimate form of protest
Attempting to hijack cars and terrify their innocent occupants is not a legitimate form of protest.

What was unfolding in Charlotte - and may still be - is not a protest. It’s a violent, unjustified riot by criminals and thugs. The question is why is the media giving it legitimacy by still referring to it as a protest?

As Watson points out, if mobs of white supremacists were looting stores, setting fires, attacking journalists and shooting guns, would the media call it a protest?

What is most disturbing is that behind the pent up rage and thuggish violence, dressed up in the socially-acceptable package of "black lives matter" is the reality that white violence is the last thing blacks should be "protesting."


Four Powerboats Added To Cruisin Parade

OCEAN CITY — The grand spectacle of offshore powerboat racing returns to Ocean City in early October and this time race enthusiasts will have the opportunity to view the powerful boats up close and personal with a handful participating in the annual Endless Summer Cruisin’ parade on the Boardwalk.

Offshore powerboat racing has been a staple of the resort’s shoulder seasons off and on for the last decade or so with the Offshore Powerboat Racing Association (OPA) making stops in the resort as part of its summer-long racing series. Because of the timing of the summer season in Ocean City and the need to close off a vast area of ocean to accommodate the racing, the OPA typically puts its Ocean City stop near the end of its schedule and this year is no different.

Over the weekend of Oct. 7-9, the OPA will host its penultimate event of the summer series with the Ocean City Grand Prix in advance of the world championships in Florida a week later. Event headquarters are located in West Ocean City in and around the public boat ramp at the harbor with public viewings, meet and greets with the racers and the associated events at the race village. However, as an added twist this year, as many as four offshore powerboats will be added to the parade on Saturday, Oct. 8, on the Boardwalk as part of the Endless Summer Cruisin’ event, which takes place the same weekend


Shapiro At Yale: 'Diversity Isn’t Our Strength. Decency Is Our Strength.'

On Wednesday night, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro spoke at Yale University, and wasted no time in attacking the university for its pusillanimous behavior regarding political correctness, eliciting a standing ovation at the conclusion of the speech.

Shapiro, who has been battling laryngitis for a couple of weeks, began by joking and prompting laughter as he stated, “Thank you so much for having me; my mother will finally be pleased that I got to Yale … brief note: if my voice seems to be going out, if I start hacking up a lung, it’s just because I watched Hillary Clinton fall down on YouTube and it’s so contagious that that alone seems to have affected me.”


Entry Deadline Announced For Berlin’s Annual Christmas Parade

BERLIN — Berlin’s 46th Annual Christmas Parade will be held Thursday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. The parade rain date is Dec. 8. The parade officially kicks off numerous Christmas events scheduled for December in Berlin. This year’s parade theme is “Christmas Dreams”.

The parade is sponsored by the Berlin Main Street program, in cooperation with the merchants of the town. All costs of conducting the parade are covered by donations from Berlin area merchants and entry fees. Due to the increased costs, most categories will be asked to pay a small entry fee of $10. Commercial entries will cost $25.

Due to time constraints, this year’s parade will be limited to 80 entries. Entries are reminded that the parade route will be the same as last year. To alleviate congestion during the line-up of the entries, there will be two entry points. Entrants will be contacted the week of the parade with a line-up number and entry points. Berlin town staff and volunteers will be located along the route and specific spots to direct entries to their line-up number. The parade will commence at the corner of Powellton Avenue and Main Street and conclude at the corner of South Main Street and Tripoli Street.
