It's been an interesting week in news. Here's what I found most interesting so far.
WMDT sold their Station for $9,000,000.00. That should make Salisbury News worth at least $20,000,000.00.
Yesterday the news stations talked about someone being convicted for drugs. States Attorney Matt Maciarello was interviewed and told the world that the Sheriff's Department will receive all of the $500,000.00 collected in that arrest. Do tell me WHY they need speed cameras again?????? Oh, that's right, it's for the children.
CORRECTION, Maciarello actually told the Press the following: Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew Maciarello says the money will go directly towards the Wicomico County Task Force, which is made up of several agencies, including the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, the Salisbury Police Department, the Fruitland Police Department, and Maryland State Police. They will divide the money up and use it for law enforcement purposes.
WBOC did a story the other day talking about the new water tower in Laurel. They actually flew their helicopter over the BARE location. Then they had a reporter on the ground covering this non story. Here's what was most interesting and I'm sure most of you missed it. They kept showing shots from Bargain Bills parking lot, yet they refused to show their sign or identify them in any way. However, they did conveniently mention, (while on Bargain Bills parking lot) that they were close to Johnny Janosik's, one of their advertisers.
Finally, how about the story about having to show your ID to purchase nail polish remover. Did you catch that story? Well, here's a thought for you. Will our government now make us show ID if we purchase CORN. After all, it can be used to manufacture moonshine.
