Something Big Is Going Down On The Bypass Right Now

Salisbury University Course uses 'Pyramid of White Supremacy' to teach diversity

A course at Salisbury University in Maryland is using a “Pyramid of White Supremacy” to help teach students about diversity and “cultural competence.”

“Avoiding confrontation with racist family members” and “remaining apolitical” make up the base, which is deemed critical for more egregious things like mass killings and genocide.

A course at Salisbury University in Maryland is using a “Pyramid of White Supremacy” to help teach students about diversity and “cultural competence.”

The one-credit course, “Diversity and the Self,” is a required class for any student hoping to obtain an elementary education major.


BEFORE The BS Hits The Fan, There's Two Sides To Every Story. This Side Is The TRUTH.

January 14, 2018

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Rob Mulford. I am the owner of Market Street Inn. Here at Market Street, we have served the Salisbury community since 2001. Since that time, much has changed. Salisbury has grown. It has been fun to watch many of my early employees, who have moved on, to raise families, start businesses, buy homes, and live and reside here on the Eastern Shore or elsewhere. I have also had the pleasure of seeing my customers, over the years, grow, evolve, learn, change, and experience life, through its ups and downs. Since the beginning, however, our goal has remained the same: to provide high-quality food in a welcoming atmosphere, all the time. Whether it is for a celebratory dinner with friends and family, or simply to get a beer and a sandwich on a football Sunday, we want you to come to Market Street and feel at home. That goal will never change.

As a restaurant owner in our community, sometimes I experience firsthand the materialization of what I believe is an old Ben Franklin quote—you cannot make all the people happy all of the time. Trust me, we try. We currently have a staff of about 50 people, from backgrounds of all kinds, who are trained to prioritize our customers, and consistently meet their expectations. Unfortunately, however, when dealing with high volume, customers and staff, food that must be prepared and sold, rules that must be followed, and bills that must be paid, once in a while a customer leaves our restaurant with an experience that falls short of our goal. Often, when a customer feels this way, we must “agree to disagree.” But we always listen, and we always care, and we always want to make things better and implement the same goal since day one—to make you feel at home.

Recently, and regrettably, we had four customers who left our restaurant dissatisfied. Two of these customers asked to buy alcoholic beverages, and produced drivers’ licenses that my employees, including management, carefully examined and could not be convinced were authentic. They checked the identifications very closely and deliberately, and at the end, in an abundance of caution, declined to serve those two customers their drinks. At no time whatsoever did we deny these customers service. We were simply exercising our judgment, which include safety and legal concerns, to decline serving alcohol without proper identification. We were prepared to continue serving these customers food, non-alcoholic beverages, and offer the same welcoming atmosphere we continuously strive to provide at Market Street. These customers, however, felt otherwise. Since this time, they have initiated a campaign, much through social media, claiming they were discriminated against as “women of color.” The post at issue includes the following allegations:

While we disagree that race, national origin, or color had any impact whatsoever in our decision to not sell these customers alcohol, we take these concerns seriously, and we care, and we would like to make clear that we respect these concerns, and will always try harder to make our customers feel welcome. We are open to everyone, colorblind, always have and always will be. In addition, here at Market Street, we know with our success comes responsibility. Underage drinking, especially in a college town, is widespread, and we want to take every precaution possible to ensure that we only serve alcohol to those of legal age. We train our staff, including management, to error on the side of caution; the City of Salisbury has been good to us, and we strive to uphold our end of the bargain, to follow every standard and help keep our community safe.

Here at Market Street, diversity is what makes us work. I can assure you, when it comes to customers, clients and employees, we have seen, accepted and welcomed all walks of life, from everywhere, and that is what makes us who we are. We are here to serve the community in which we work and live. We are open seven days a week—to everyone-- and we want you to come, sit down, relax, eat and drink, and feel good and like you are with old friends. That was my goal in 2001 and that is my goal today. The Salisbury community has been extraordinarily supportive to me, through our ups and downs, and I remain committed to serving this city and giving back. Please feel free to stop by Market Street, and ask for me, Rob Mulford, if there is anything you would like to discuss, or if you would just like to have a good meal with friends.

Publishers Notes: I find it absolutely amazing the lengths this young lady went through to defame such a good man and honorable business. I read her Facebook post last night and was amazed at what I was seeing. IMHO, Rob could very easily file a serious lawsuit against these woman for defamation. Go back to where you came from because you young lady are a very spiteful and dangerous woman. 


As fast as they came together, (without legal permits) they disband and took off. However, we were able to capture these images. 

Mayor Day, you must be so proud of who and what you snowflakes have become. Following the Liberal agenda, they push lies and crooked information to target white people as racists and scream discrimination. 

What they don't realize is that they are destroying the Eastern Shore and our country as a whole.  Fake Lies Matter! Salisbury is truly becoming a "SHITHOLE". 

Great work Sarra Malik, meet Molly.

A Viewer Writes: Sidewalk snow - and the "new" twist on the story from the Mayor

This is NOT what he said in those videos and on the news. We all heard it.  This is on the "nextdoor" platform.

Sidewalk Snow Removal

I was told by someone that all city of Salisbury residents must have sidewalks shoveled by 3pm today or risk being fined. Is this accurate?

Hi Jessica no, that’s what it would have been by City law if there had not been a Civil Emergency today, but because of that and the conditions, the next time any code enforcement officers will even be out is Monday and worst case they will let you know if your sidewalks need to be cleared. My understanding of that very old law is that it is designed to protect you, the property owner, in case anyone hurts themselves on your sidewalk. That being said, when things are safe for you to do so, worry about it then, in the meantime stay warm and don’t worry about anyone complaining about snow-covered sidewalks for the next 3 days.

I wouldn't worry about it, especially when they themselves don't clear the roads for over a week after the snow storm. Trust me, I've had to WALK to work for a week straight before they clear the roads, because it depends on where you live.

Thomas Worden is right about the past. As a lifelong resident I've seen the same. That said, all City streets were plowed by 7 pm today once - though many are only one lane wide. The crews were up all through the storm, including before snow fell on Wednesday to lay down salt (which was ineffective due to the cold) and they are finally getting some rest. The January 2017 storm was the first where we could GPS track and confirm every street was plowed and we will be able to finish the same with this storm - understandably it may take a few passes to get everything and stranded/stalled/street-parked cars have made some streets very difficult to plow at the width we might want. We will be back out tomorrow morning around 0500. Any additional plowing requests can be posted here or on our Facebook page or through the Citizen Services request on the web site ( We will be putting down more salt solution tomorrow - one final layer to help the melting process on Sunday. Because of the temperatures you won't see any melting tomorrow.

I moved here from NH, and I saw the guy plow our street today -  You really can't do it at 30 miles an hours.   The street is no more passable than before the plow flashed by.

You would think, by now in 2018 you wouldn't use the same excuse that it's "the south and we're not used to this", I'm not being sour but I've seen a lot of favoritism around here and certain people or areas are cared for differently. I know this first hand experience.

Jessica Beauchamp

I moved here in 1989. I'm from PA originally. At first, we barely got any snow. And 2 inches would shut down the city completely. Almost 30 years later and we've progressively had more and more snow over the years. It would seem rational to assume we could plan a tad bit better considering the trend.

Jake Day
Jake Day·5 JanNew
That's definitely no excuse.  The only difference between here and, say, Minnesota, is that there is a financial decision to make about how many plows and how much salt a place invests in year to year and how much ends up being wasted annually - but that has no bearing on this event since (and I can't speak for any other jurisdiction) the City was never held up by a shortage of anything. Our only challenge was progress being held up by the relentless snow until 1600 Thursday and then the snow drifting back over plowed roads.

Salisbury Maryland Mayor Jake Day Says They've Already Hired A Replacement Contractor For Downtown Renovations

We've said enough about the disgust in Jake Day's refusal to pay the former contractor for work that has already been completed. The contractor simply told Jake if they didn't pay them by mid December, 2017 they'd pack their things and walk off the job. Day told the public, (knowing the contractor would in fact leave because the City didn't have the funds) that he was going to have everything cleared Downtown for the Ball Drop on New Years Eve. Once again he mislead the public.

Nevertheless, let's talk about what is now at hand. Day claims they've already hired a replacement contractor. Where's the RFP? Who is the replacement contractor. You see, while the rest of the media fell asleep on this story and once again had to follow SBYNews lead, they never asked the key question, who is it? The next question any reputable media source would ask is, will they finish the work at the same cost of the original contractor, or will it cost the taxpayers more money. Finally they would've asked, is it true the City shorted the original contractor hundreds of thousands of dollars? Instead they simply stated the original contractor was going too slow, NOT TRUE AT ALL. 

If Day and Council President Jack Heath had done their due diligence they would've planned in advance for the contaminated soil in the two locations history showed had gas stations and leaky tanks. Pointing the finger at the contractor delays is complete BS. The fact is, the City owes the contractor hundreds of thousands of dollars for the disposal of that contaminated soil but your local Liberal Media refuses to investigate, challenge and or simply tell you the TRUTH and you should be disgusted. 

Finally, the City still owes Wicomico County $65,000.00 for UNPAID disposal of contaminated soil also not paid at this point. To the nay sayers, it doesn't matter if the lawsuit has been filed yet or not. The POINT is, the City has not paid almost, (if not more) a half a million dollars in services rendered.  

Mayor Day, how much will the balance, (50%) of this project now cost the taxpayers? Who is the replacement contractor and finally, shame on the local Media for not asking the questions taxpayers deserve answers to.

Rev. Al Sharpton to Trump: ‘You Are a Racist’

On Monday when asked if the president is racist, Rev. Al Sharpton said, “You don’t have to spray paint the N-word over the Oval Office and sleep with a KKK hood to be racist. If you have racist policies, say racist things, operate in a racist manner you are are a racist, period end of story.”

Salisbury Receives Half-Million in State Revitalization Funds for Amphitheater

Mayor Jake Day is pleased to announce that Governor Larry Hogan’s 2019 proposed budget, which was announced today, includes $500,000 in revitalization funds for the City of Salisbury to construct its new Riverwalk Amphitheater.

First imagined in the City’s “Envision Salisbury” 20-year master plan, the amphitheater project’s priority increased with the news of the National Folk Festival’s 3-year residency in the Salisbury.

“If we’re trying to grow Salisbury economically, it is our responsibility to create a place where people want to be,” said the Mayor. “For the National Folk Festival and beyond, the Riverwalk Amphitheater will be a space for community to gather and appreciate art and performance together.”

Today’s news of the $500,000 allotment demonstrates a continuing commitment from the State of Maryland and Governor Larry Hogan to play an active role in the revitalization of Salisbury’s metro core. In Governor Larry Hogan’s 2018 budget, Salisbury received $1 million in revitalization funds for its Main Street overhaul.

Mayor Day said, “Governor Hogan has had Salisbury’s back at every opportunity. I am tremendously grateful to him for recognizing, as I do, and as our community does, that revitalization is happening in Downtown Salisbury.

Delmarva Veteran Builders was hired by the City to be the Construction Manager for the project, and will be responsible for design and construction. Construction is expected to begin in March, with completion by July 31, 2018, ahead of the National Folk Festival, September 7th through the 9th.

Great news for Baltimore!

Baltimore Is Now 'FREE AT LAST' as Mayor Removes Confederate Statues! Praise needs to be given to the Mayor of Baltimore.

For years the Black community has been under abssault by 4 Confederate Monuments. These monuments were relentless in their destruction of the Black family as over 70% of Black children were born out of wedlock. So terrified by the presence of these monuments, over 60% of Black men in the city could not work a job and found comfort in fathering numerous children with numerous women that they could not feed.

Just knowing that the monuments were there made Black school children have the lowest test scores in the Nation and many turned to drugs to relieve the sting of the monuments presence.

Worst of all, the mere presence of the monuments caused death. Not being able to handle the hate and violence that the monuments represented, the Black males in the city took to killing each other by the thousands. Just in the last 2 years they have murdered 500 of their own.

Praise be to God and the Wisdom of the Mayor. It is a new dawn for Black Baltimoreans! The shackles have been removed and all that can be said is, Free at last, free at last, Lord God Almighty, we're free at last.

The Salisbury Zoo Staff Couldn't Even Power Wash The Mold For Their New Bear

As many of you know, my Wife worked at the Salisbury Zoo for 18 years. Back then, (if you can imagine) being a woman doing a mans job was extremely difficult. However, the DETAIL she has always had when it comes to animal care and cleanliness would amaze you.

That being said, I don't know who this new Director is at the Zoo but he's clearly a bum. I've heard from people going in and out of the Zoo that this guy is found sleeping at his desk on a regular basis and obviously the Zookeepers couldn't care less what the public thinks and or how to care for animals. The green mold on the walls is evidence enough for me. 

The Salisbury Zoo is a complete dump and should be closed. Those poor animals! How long has this bear been in quarantine? 

A Viewer Writes: Sunrise Communities, Walston Mobile Home Park

Not only is it extremely annoying every time you turn around there is something taped to your door, as well as no permission or notice that the park managers were going to be on the property you have paid rent on. I guess now they think they can dictate who visits and stays overnight with you, how long you need to take a shower, or if you can take a bath or not. Ridiculous! It’s not the septic they are concerned with, rather the total amount of gallons the park uses yearly. The laws that were past regarding septic systems on the Eastern Shore(save the bay) are ripping them a new one. Investors should of done their homework a little better before purchasing this park. From what I have learned if the park goes over a certain amount of gallons of water used in a certain time frame the state is going to make them install a central septic system for the entire park. Costly, why you think Steve sold her??? Now they seem to want to try and pass that buck to the city of Salisbury. Good Luck with that. What a joke these investors are. The managers here now, we’ll they are just clueless. Enough for now, my bath time.

WBOC Removed From Peninsula Propane By Seaford Police

 While WBOC was escorted off their property, one place we know for sure they won't get thrown off of is the Wicomico Landfill, allow me to explain.
You see, while their Peninsula Propane story is as close as they'll ever get to investigative reporting, (LMAO) they went on last night with a story from Salisbury Maryland Mayor Jake Day with NO investigative work whatsoever. 

So here's the deal. Jake Day said the Salisbury Waste Water Treatment Plant is almost at 100% functionality wise, BULL SH!T! All you have to do is go to the Landfill and watch them dump their liquid SLUDGE/POOP. You see, when Delmar, Fruitland, Willards bring their processed sludge to the Landfill it has NO ODOR whatsoever and is consistent like Play Dough. Salisbury, (however) is like liquid and stinks like fresh sh!t. Ask ANY employee who work on the hill. 

Instead, WBOC is a lazy and even reckless news organization, (knowing the WWTP has a history of lies, as do the Mayors) and simply takes their word for it. The Salisbury Waster Water Treatment Plant will not ever process their waste properly and guess what Salisbury Taxpayers, you are into that plant for over $140,000,000.00!!!! I can tell you that when this went up for bid over a decade ago, one bidder said they could deliver a facility FOUR times more capacity for $35,000,000.00. That's over one hundred million dollars less. 

Mayor Jake Day is a liar. That plant may be close to being 100% complete, according to their contractual agreement but it is far from 100% working, it never will. 

Influenza (And no, I am NOT getting a flu shot)

by Ralph Campbell, MD

Influenza is upon us early and with severity so we are told. There is the urgent warning to get your flu shot now to avoid being one of 36,000 U.S. deaths every year. This same figure appears every flu season in spite of the CDC admitting, for several clear reasons that the figure is a "guesstimate," the most prominent being that people don't die of influenza, per se, but predominately of secondary pneumonia augmented by other underlying health problems. Unfortunately, the CDC gathers its mortality statistics under the category of "pneumonia and influenza"---lumping them together rather than attempting to determine if the pneumonia was a secondary infection due to an immune system weakened by influenza infection. And since the immune system in the very young and old is often sub-par, they are more prone to both the primary and secondary infections.

This year the flu vaccine is ineffective.

The consistency, year after year, that this figure (36,000) is quoted in order to promote a sense of urgency is astonishing. The New England Journal of Medicine recently published an alarming study. From what happened to our Southern hemisphere friends in Australia in their last flu season (their winter; our summer), one can estimate how our oncoming season will go. In Australia last season there were 215,280 cases vs. 59,022 in the 2009 Influenza A (H1N3) season, likely due to vaccine mismatch. This same study presented the discouraging news that in Australia last year, even with a relatively good match, the effectiveness may have been only 42% overall or 34% for the H3N2 strain. This year's Influenza A (H3N3), the predominate strain, proved to be only 10% affected by the vaccine. The reason: Since vaccines need to be prepared in advance, the manufacturer often can't keep ahead of the rapidly mutating strains of the virus. The CDC is making this admission: When the influenza vaccine is a good match to the virus, the shot reduces the risk of getting the flu by 40% to 60%. However, this season (winter of 2017-2018) is one where the vaccine is not well matched to the virus. It is only anywhere from 30% to 10% effective. Natural immunity built up by the immune system is often preferable since it is longer lasting. With this type of information, a discussion of the pros and cons of the flu vaccine with the doctor is imperative----not just with a shot-giver who has no knowledge, or interest in, the personal medical history.

Flu shots preempt the doctor-patient relationship...

(There's lots of info here..)

Ironic, Isn't It?

Coming From One Of The Biggest Racists On Earth

Letter to the Editor: Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce In Support of Offshore Wind in MD

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce– representing hundreds of regional Delmarva businesses and thousands of their employees - we want to express our strong commitment to capturing the immense wind energy resource off our shores. To protect our health, wildlife, and economy – and the quality of life of future generations, we must reduce pollution and launch a new clean energy chapter for America.

The Eastern Shore of Maryland has enough offshore wind potential to meet many of the state’s energy needs. Despite this, we risk falling behind neighboring states with far less potential. Offshore wind projects in Maryland are expected to produce up to 750 MW of power, which will meet 100 percent of Maryland’s off-shore wind renewable energy goals. This is enough power for more than 500,000 Maryland homes.

Investing in this pollution-free energy source, with no fuel costs, can help us reduce pollution and boost our local economies. Offshore wind blows strongest during times of peak energy demand – summer afternoons and winter cold snaps. It will diversify our energy portfolio with large amounts of valuable, clean power just when we need it most.

According to experts the project will create 5,000 jobs in the well-paying construction and manufacturing fields, create a net-export industry for Maryland, provide a $16 billion net economic benefit for Maryland, spur $190 million on investment in critical infrastructure, and support nearly 100 long-term operations and maintenance careers; these are all incredibly positive outcomes for Maryland.

State and community leaders play a critical role in advancing offshore wind power off their shores. The Federal government has made significant progress in recent years identifying and approving locations for offshore wind to move Maryland toward realizing the golden opportunity over our horizon.

Maryland and the Eastern Shore’s citizens and wildlife are depending on bold leadership in ensuring a clean energy future. We strongly urge all to recognize just how much we stand to gain from harnessing our offshore wind power potential. Coastal resiliency, local jobs, increased investments in economic development, manufacturing, protecting wildlife and future generations of Marylanders, this is a promising clean energy solution.
