The Daily Times Inside Connection With The Board Of Education Continues

No, you won't find this information on the Board of Education Website. Why, because the Daily Times has a special connection through marriage in which they get exclusive information held back from the rest of the public. The idea that the below information can only be achieved through an outlet you have to PAY for is a monopoly, proving government and liberals are nothing but scam artists, forcing you to have to pay for information coming from sources that support your every want and need.

"Parkside High, in conjunction with the family, is holding the celebration of Davis’s legacy in education on Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Parkside High School Auditorium. All school and community members are welcome to attend."

Its kind of like when the Daily Times begs for inside information a day before any one else because it takes them a day to go to press. To me, the important thing is to get the information out there to everybody. The Wicomico Board of Education does not give Salisbury News or any other Blog ANY information. Then again, look at who's attached to the above information and perhaps you/we can better understand.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski Makes History

Maryland's Senior Senator Inducted Into National Women's Hall Of Fame

Maryland's senior senator made history this weekend.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame Saturday. The other inductees included an equal rights champion, a pioneering chemist and the first woman to enter the Boston Marathon, a group of women who ignored the notion of impossibilities, 11 News I-Team reporter Deborah Weiner said.
"For many of us on the stage, and certainly for myself, what we knew was when people told us 'No, you can't do this, why are you doing this -- you're just going to cause trouble -- why don't you stay home, why don't you shut up, why don't you sit down,' well you know what, it just didn't work out that way," Mikulski said in her induction speech.

Public Housing, Not Prison Camps

In the debate over a basketball court in an Annapolis neighborhood, two strains of thought have emerged.

The first is understandable if oversimplified, while the second is more interesting and more disturbing.

The first is this: The old basketball court was linked with crime and drugs, so the Landex Cos. had good reason to tear it out and refuse to let a new one be built.

The second line of reasoning goes like this: These people live in public housing, so they should just shut up.

Superficially, both are about a basketball court in Annapolis Gardens, a community of 150 homes off Admiral Drive. But this is really part of a larger debate about the role and future of public housing.

There are huge problems that haven't been solved for decades: inter-generational poverty, broken families, a cycle of dependence on government.

That doesn't mean people have to be treated like prisoners while they're living there.

Yet many readers of my column and stories in The Capital have suggested residents have no right to complain about Landex's reversal on the court - or about anything, really.

"If you want a basketball court save up your money and move to a community that has one," wrote one reader on "It is not the responsibility of the taxpayers to fund your recreation."

Said another: "If you don't like that, you're free to get a job and find housing using your own money."

The earlier report caused a major stir, but it appears that it was a story that was too good to be true.
A spokesperson for the IG's office has now backed down on the $16 muffin cost, but the office remains critical of the amount paid for the food and beverages.

About young people, we need them to hear both sides and give them the power to choose. A lady who works with us is taking a college course and the general question asked was if you had a choice of all government control, free enterprise and very little government control, or a mix with government being the larger in control and just a little free enterprise which would you choose?

Latino Students Withdraw From Alabama Schools After Immigration Law Goes Into Effect

Scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from Alabama public schools, according to state education officials, after a court ruling upheld the state’s new anti-immigration law.

The law, which was approved by the state legislature and is widely backed by voters, allows police to check for papers and detain undocumented residents without bail. It also mandates that public schools share with authorities the citizenship status of all newly enrolled students.

The law went into effect Thursday.

Cellphone Carriers Keep Personal Data Up to 7 Years, Report Says

A document obtained by the ACLU shows for the first time how the four largest cellphone companies in the U.S. treat data about their subscribers' calls, text messages, Web surfing and approximate locations.

The one-page document from the Justice Department's cybercrime division shows, for instance, that Verizon Wireless keeps, for a year, information about which cell towers subscriber phones connect to. That data that can be used to figure out where the phone has been, down to the level of a neighborhood. AT&T has kept the same data continuously since July 2008.

Ramit Sethi, author of I Will Teach You to be Rich recently conducted a survey called "13 Stunning Differences in How Men and Women Think About Money," that surveyed 1,167 of his blog readers on their attitudes toward finance.


Fla. Primary Move: "It Messes Everything Up"


The key battleground state of Florida decided Friday to move up its Republican presidential primary to Jan. 31, snubbing party rules and triggering angry responses from traditional early voting primary states which will now likely move up their primaries to stay ahead.

The move thwarts efforts by both major political parties to delay presidential primaries and caucuses. Their aim has been to avoid a repeat of the 2008 scenario, when states jumped ahead of each other in attempts to increase their influence in the process.
