Wow - I can't wait. I'll join the dozen or so other brave souls who will be there tonight.

Will you be there Joe?

I heard Jim say he was.

anonymous 1:10, I haven't decided yet. I have never been made to feel welcomed or comforted at any 3rd Friday event, since I'm not in the crafts click. Ireton does his best to bring people that attempt to make us feel even that much more uncomfortable.

That being said, there's no reason to add fuel to their fire. It reminds me of trying to go into MoJo's as well. Ireton's friends make every attempt to try to pick a fight and I simply leave. It's not worth it.

When I'm elected I will make sure every one feels welcome to this event. Yes, including Jim Ireton.

The Wicomico Public Library will be holding a special event entitled "The Murder of Lincoln."

Speaker, historian and teacher Roger Arthur will present an informative and entertaining talk on this turning point in American History.

Program starts at 7 pm, Library doors open at 6:45. Everyone is welcome.

I do not feel comfortable at this event either. 3rd Friday is designed for one crowd and one crowd only and that is the arts crowd. That is such a small part of our society and has proven to be a complete failure to attract crowds. If you think about it most arts and entertainment people are the eclectic and mostly gay crowd. This is why Jim Ireton likes it so much. He is trying to turn Salisbury into a town just like Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Most First Friday events in other cities is all inclusive and always a drawing card to bring people downtown. The arts vendors are just a small part of that event and this is why our 3rd Friday is a complete failure. Change it now or quit investing money on it.
