Use-By Date Confusion Is Making Us Waste Millions Of Pounds Of Food Every Year

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Use-by dates and expiration dates aren’t strict mandates designed to save you from the brink of gastrointestinal hell, they’re more like guidelines. A new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council and Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic says American are chucking millions of pounds of perfectly good food in the midst of expiration date confusion. That’s quite a waste.

Just because the expiration date is on food doesn’t mean the food itself expires at the stroke of midnight on the date and turns into something unsafe to consume, notes Food dating exists to indicate the freshness of the food, when that product will be at its peak. Can an expired food make you sick? Yes, but usually not immediately upon the date indicated.

Atomic Bomb Nearly Exploded Over North Carolina In 1961, Report Says

The U.S. Air Force nearly detonated an atomic bomb over North Carolina in 1961 that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that destroyed Hiroshima, according to a declassified report published Friday in The Guardian.

The 1969 document, obtained by investigative journalist Eric Schlosser under the Freedom of Information Act, details the Jan. 23, 1961, B-52 crash near Goldsboro, North Carolina, that saw two Mark 39 hydrogen bombs break up in mid-air.


17 Cows That Forgot How to be a Cow

Although an animal’s instincts are certainly strong, sometimes even animals get a little air headed from time to time. We think you’ll appreciate this list of cows who suddenly forgot how to to be a cow.

 This cow forgot how to drive.

This cow forgot how to act around cars.

This cow forgot it didn’t club.

The Daily Pravda Wrong Again!

Dateline: Daily Pravda story regarding the “class of 1963” states this was the largest class in Wico’s school history. Wrong; my class of 1965 was the largest class. Pravda screws up once again...

UPDATE: I should have stated in original email that Stump took the story from a few of the members of class of 63. he just didn’t fact check. there are other facts that are wrong as well. for instance the comment regarding Parkside as one of the reasons that class was “the largest”. Parkside wasn’t in the picture at that time; only Bennett in 66.

PRMC Lays Off Another 58 People

It has been confirmed that an additional 58 people lost their jobs today at PRMC. 

Letter To The Editor - PRMC 9-19-13


It seems to me that PRMC has robbed the healthcare system from years. According to Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission, PRMC has had a decrease in inpatient funds while their outpatient funds have steadily increased. 

It seems to me that they were habitually admitting patients that didn't need inpatient hospital care. Those patients who were billed for inpatient care could have most certainly received outpatient care. 

The new healthcare laws prohibits hospitals like PRMC from gouging the healthcare system's seeming never ending source of American taxpayer money. Up until now PRMC was able to admit patients for unwarranted reasons and rake in the money to essentially line the pockets of their executive staff. 

Rest assured, if you have a "worthy" reason for hospital admission, you will be admitted, but now, if you were admitted previously for an inessential reason, you will be sent home to tend to your needs while receiving outpatient care (as it should have always been). 

It's taken the burden off of the American taxpayer. I am thankful of the new healthcare laws. I am thankful that greedy hospital CEO's, like Peggy, can no longer rob my paycheck to line her pockets and pad her off shore bank accounts by providing fraudulent "health care".

BREAKING NEWS: Small Plane Crashes At Salisbury Airport

Station One, Two and Station 16 from Salisbury and Station Six from Parsonsburg have been dispatched. Report of one patient. More to come...


A parent in Towson, Md., was arrested Thursday night at a public forum after vocally expressing his concerns about the Baltimore County School District’s plan to use Common Core standards in its curriculum.

Robert Small, a concerned father, was forcefully removed from the meeting by a police officer after he interrupted Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance during the question-and-answer portion of the forum.

The meeting apparently didn’t allow parents to stand up and ask questions or comment. Parents and other attendants were instead asked to write their questions on a piece of paper and officials would read them.

Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Families of Victims

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

Breaking News: House Votes To Keep Government Open, Defund ObamaCare

The House voted Friday to keep the government open through mid-December but only if Congress strips funding from ObamaCare.

The vote was 230 to 189, and largely expected.

The Senate, which is in recess until Tuesday, is expected to take up the vote next week. However, it is unlikely it will pass in the Democrat-controlled Senate. 



ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 20, 2013) – Governor Martin O’Malley today issued the following statement on the U.S. Department of Labor’s release of preliminary employment data for the month of August:"Last month, Marylanders created 9,700 new jobs. Together, we have now recovered 100 percent of the jobs we lost as a result of the national recession. Today, there are 43,300 more Marylanders working than this time last year, and our unemployment rate has been driven down to 7 percent, below the national rate.

"Today’s jobs report also reaffirms the strength of Maryland’s dynamic private sector. Over the past 12 months, our businesses have created 37,800 jobs -- nearly 9 out of every 10 new jobs created in our state.

"As we reach this milestone in Maryland's economic recovery, we must remember that our work is not done. We need to continue our work building an economy that creates even more middle class opportunities, and creates prosperity for Maryland from the middle out.”

Dems Walk Out Before Parents Of Benghazi Victims Testify

On Thursday, all but two Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee walked out before the parents of two of the victims killed in the Benghazi attacks testified.

Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Ty Woods, spoke after the committee questioned the heads of the Benghazi Accountability Review Board (ARB) and the Independent Panel of Best Practices.

But among Democrats, only Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking member on the committee, and Jackie Speier (D-CA) stayed to hear Woods and Smith.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the chair of the committee, tweeted a picture of the empty seats:


Muir Boda Announces County Council Campaign

I am taking this moment to officially announce my Candidacy for Wicomico County Council At-Large.

I love Wicomico County and I am proud to say we are one of the 100 Best Communities in the Country in which to live. We have so much to offer people who are looking for a great place to live, work, worship, learn and play. My purpose and my goal in running for County Council is to ensure that we remain one of the 100 Best Communities and there are several key issues we need to address to keep that status.

I am putting forth the Wicomico Initiative, a five point plan to take our County and Region to the next level. These five issues are key to addressing many of the problems which threaten our way of life and I am committed to working with all municipalities, Law Enforcement, the business community, our educational system, civic groups and those elected with me to County offices to strategically implement this initiative.

The five key issues we need to focus on are Reducing Crime, Education, Economic Development, Defending the Revenue Cap and Protecting Property Rights. Though there are more issues that will need to be addressed throughout this campaign, these issues are key in setting the foundation on which I stand and will remain standing on many issues.

I certainly understand that I alone cannot implement policy direction and legislation. It will take the Council as a whole in cooperation with the County Executive and all public servants in Wicomico County and its municipalities to do what is right for Wicomico County. It requires us to put aside political differences and egos, for that is the greatest hindrance to progress.

Join me and send a message on Election Day to our leaders to stand with us in protecting our way of life. If you would like more information on my campaign please visit our website at

Muir Boda
At-Large Candidate for Wicomico County Council

Solar Activity Drops To 100-Year Low, Puzzling Scientists

LONDON: Predictions that 2013 would see an upsurge in solar activity and geomagnetic storms disrupting power grids and communications systems have proved to be a false alarm. Instead, the current peak in the solar cycle is the weakest for a century.

Subdued solar activity has prompted controversial comparisons with the Maunder Minimum, which occurred between 1645 and 1715, when a prolonged absence of sunspots and other indicators of solar activity coincided with the coldest period in the last millennium.


Thank God Its Friday 9-20-13

What will you be doing this weekend?

Is PRMC Actually Offering Money To Employees Not Talk To The Press?

Last night I received word that people were publicly talking about PRMC offering $3,000.00 to certain employees not to talk to the press. Could this be true?

We also heard that PRMC may be downgrading their Trauma Certification in order to save additional money by not having to pay Doctors "on call". 

Blame it on Obamacare or poor management, should the pattern continue and any of the above come true, PRMC is in deep trouble. 

SBYNews called this out many months ago and so far all we have exposed has happened. Reliable sources have stated the Hospital is losing some $2,000,000.00 (+ or -) a month. We exposed their management asking employees to give up vacation days in order to avoid layoffs, yet the layoffs came anyway very soon after. We've exposed the salaries of executives and some even gave evidence of PRMC's plans to spend $2,000,000.00 a month in upgrades and new construction. Funny how those numbers, (future expenses vs current losses) match. 

The bottom line, can you provide the same care to your customers when your cutting back, let's hope so. There are many quality and dedicated Doctors and Nurses on staff and the negative impact to the Eastern Shore is going to be huge.

If there was ever a time when your Mayor should be holding a Press Conference, this is it. Reassure the Public Jim. PRMC pays NO TAXES as a Non Profit. The taxpayers should expect their Mayor to sit down with PRMC and find out just how bad this will impact our local economy. Its called being PROACTIVE. 

18 Shot In 4 hours In Attacks Across Chicago

At least 18 people were shot, one fatally, in less than four hours in attacks in Chicago Thursday evening, police said.

In attack in Back of the Yards, 12 people, including a 3-year-old boy, were shot at Cornell Square Park, authorities said.

A 36-year-old man was shot near 77th Street and Sangamon Avenue about 6:56 p.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien. The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in critical condition.

Breaking News: House Passes Bill To Slash $40B For Food Stamps

WASHINGTON – The House voted Thursday evening to cut nearly $40 billion a year from the country's food stamp assistance program.

The 217-210 vote was a major victory for Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and largely cast along party lines. All House Democrats and 15 Republicans voted against slashing the budget for the program.

Despite its passage in the House, the bill is unlikely to make it through the Democrat-controlled Senate.

A Letter To The Editor 9-19-13

Hey Joe,

Cory Williams, from gander mountain, has requested that I allow 16 days to pick up my purchases, not the required 8 that Maryland law requires. He states that it is company policy to wait 16 for release per his legal team, and if it is before the OCT 1st deadline, that the purchases will be released. If it is not before the OCT 1 deadline, his company will not release them.

But he will only release them if I have purchased a gun within the last year… which I think I have, but feel it shouldn’t matter. this is still in violation of my constitutional rights and I still plan to hold gander mountain responsible if I do not get my purchases, a fact I will pass on to Cory when I see him on Thursday at noon…

He has said they are processing through august right now and plan to be making calls for September soon.

If you know of anyone who has been waiting for a gun purchase from gander mountain, let them know they are welcome to accompany me on Thursday at noon, to confirm the date their purchase can be picked up… though I am a firm believer that all of these waiting periods are in direct violation to “shall not be infringed.” I will wait til the 16th day before rocking the legal boat.

Just an update and I plan to be there on Thursday at noon.

The Real Lesson Learned From Monday's US Navy Yard Tragedy

Allen West
The real lesson learned from Monday's US Navy Yard tragedy is that we have turned our military installations into gun-free zones, a free-fire area for an attacker. As in Ft. Hood, once an assailant breaches the perimeter security checkpoint they are in a target-rich environment of unarmed and defenseless uniformed service members and civilians. A Clinton-era Executive Order made this possible, so now what should be the safest place is in fact a kill zone. Let us not forget that 30 years ago 238 Marines lost their lives in Beirut because the ROE did not allow them to have weapons loaded, even at the security checkpoint. The response times at Ft. Hood and the Navy Yard were 10 and 7 minutes respectively...and in both cases the assailants were shot by civilian law enforcement, not military. Our enemies are watching.


A group of truckers is reportedly planning to shut Washington, D.C. down for three days straight starting on Oct. 11 to protest the “corruption against the Constitution.”

The “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page has more than 16,000 likes, though it is unclear how many truckers actually intend on taking part in the disruptive protest.

“The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!” the group’s description reads.

Brown Plans To Announce Mikulski’s Endorsement At Campaign Event Sunday

Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown’s gubernatorial campaign plans to unveil Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski as its latest supporter at an event Sunday, according to several people familiar with the planned endorsement.

Are You Happy With The Election Results?

While Jim Ireton was allegedly re-elected, plenty of time has passed to look at what he's accomplished, or the lack thereof.

Unemployment is at record highs, PRMC is releasing employees so fast, no one knows if they're going to have a job or not. Foreclosures are the highest in the state. 

Crime is up, gangs are still a very serious problem in Salisbury. Two Salisbury Students are dead.

I know, it's time for a Press Conference about rubble at the old mall and a business sign the City/Mayor allowed to operate in that location, yet they are not allowed to have a sign. GO FIGURE. Let's open up another bike trail somewhere.

I could go on and on but I think I'll leave the rest for comments. Please, do me a favor. Do tell me all the good things Jim Ireton has done to bring Salisbury back to life again. 

Media Buries Psychiatric Drug Connection To Navy Shooter Alex Jones

Networks don’t want to risk losing $2.4 billion in ad revenue from pharmaceutical giants

Despite every indication that Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis was on SSRI drugs that have been linked to dozens of previous mass shootings, the mainstream media has once again avoided all discussion of the issue, preferring instead to blame the tragedy on a non-existent AR-15 that the gunman didn’t even use.

We now know that Alexis “had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems.”

As Mike Adams points out, “This is proof that Aaron Alexis was on psychiatric drugs, because that’s the only treatment currently being offered by the Veterans Administration for mental problems. Alexis’ family members also confirmed to the press that he was being “treated” for his mental health problems. Across the medical industry, “treatment” is the code word for psychiatric drugging.”We now know that Alexis “had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems.”


Tuesday, on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper," Michael Ritrovato spoke at length about his friend, suspected Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. After expressing his condolences to the victims and their families, Ritrovato then expressed his shock over the actions of a man he described as being "like a brother to me" and a "good-natured guy."

Ritrovato went on to explain that two of them had a close relationship based in part on their differences, specifically race and politics. Alexis was black, Ritrovato is white. Ritrovato described himself as conservative and Alexis is "more of a liberal type" who supported Barack Obama:


Republicans And Black People

Republicans are wrong to ignore black voters in the way that they do. I don’t think it’s a hopeless cause for them, and even modest inroads into the black community could tip elections the GOP’s way.

Sure, African Americans have been resistant to changing their allegiance. The task for the GOP seems impossible. But I’m not really aware of much of an attempt by Republicans – particularly presidential candidates – to go into black neighborhoods with a consistent message explaining why conservative principles work for African Americans and others who have a disproportionate number of low-income earners in their ranks.


Truckers To Shut Down America

Truckers To Shut Down America 
My fellow Patriot this effort is to support the truckers in a major shut down of America on a 3 day strike October 11th thru 13th. Obamacare will be in effect and most people will be ready to take action. No commerce on those days stock up on items that you will need. No banking no shopping no money transactions. It does not matter If a million or 50 roll through DC in this effort. Congress will listen to We The People. Which is remove Obama from office for crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want Congressional hearing on Benghazi and Seal Team 6. Louis Learner put in jail. No amnesty, remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution. Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least is Fuel prices.

Soldier Returning From Afghanistan Tomorrow Night

After 10 1/2 months serving his country in Afghanistan, Sgt. Jeff Rantz will be returning to Salisbury on Wednesday evening, September 18, 2013 at approximately 11:40p.m.

I know this time will not work for the majority of people who may have been able to come out during the day, but I did want him to have some sort of recognition; as I mentioned before, he will be returning alone and not with the rest of his unit.



This morning at 0830 the United States Naval Yard was attacked by a gunman dressed in military attire using an AR-15 rifle, a shotgun and a sidearm. He was more equipped than the 12 people he killed on the base who were not permitted to carry weapons on the base thanks to former President Bill Clinton. In 1993 the president issued orders that barred members of the military and their civilian contractors from carrying personal firearms on base. Even officers were disarmed under the law.

Statement From Governor Martin O'Malley On Shooting At Washington Navy Yard

ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 17, 2013) -- Governor Martin O'Malley issued the following statement on yesterday's shooting at the Washington Navy Yard:

“Yesterday, Maryland and our nation witnessed a senseless act of violence in neighboring Washington, D.C. Our hearts and prayers are with the victims -- including six Maryland residents -- and their loved ones.

“This loss of life is tragic because there is no such thing as a spare American. Every life is needed.

“We are very grateful for the service of our first responders, including the brave men and women of our federal, state and city law enforcement. Maryland State Police helicopters assisted with medical evacuations, and other state law enforcement resources were on standby, as part of our regional readiness and cooperation efforts. We stand ready to support our neighbors in the ongoing investigation and recovery.”

Gas Prices Surpass $3.00 per Gallon for 1,000 Consecutive Days in Longest Streak Ever

The national average price of gasoline will surpass $3.00 per gallon tomorrow for the 1,000thconsecutive day for the first time on record, according to AAA. The current streak began on Dec. 23, 2010. AAA forecasts the national average will remain above $3.00 per gallon for at least another thousand days barring a major economic recession.

“Paying less than $3.00 per gallon for gasoline may be automotive history for most Americans, like using 8-track tapes or going to a drive-in movie,” said Bob Darbelnet, President and CEO of AAA. “The reality is that expensive gas is here to stay, which is tough on millions of people who need a car to live their lives. While a few lucky drivers may occasionally pay less than $3.00 per gallon, the national average is likely to remain more costly into the future.”


Hissy Fit Fails

The commercial signs remain up and as it should be, the owner is enjoying the free publicity that would cost thousands of dollars if they had to pay to advertise. Way to go Mayor! You pounded your chest and acted like a boob, yet the signs remain. I can see the next press conference, They better Sssssstopit, (while wearing an Antwan Maryweather monkey hat and a pink scarf)! Long live In Living Color.

No Food Stamps For Soda

If one Republican congressman has his way, the days of buying soda or Twinkies with food stamps will be over.

Representative Phil Roe (R., Tenn.) introduced on Tuesday a bill that would require food stamps to be spent only on nutritious food. Roe, a doctor, said in a statement, “By giving SNAP recipients more nutritious choices, we can take a meaningful step towards ending hunger in America.”

Texas Man ID'd As Shooter In DC Attack That Killed 12

A gunman suspected in the killing of at least a eleven people at a Navy building in Washington has been identified as Aaron Alexis, 34, of Texas, Fox News has learned.

Police were operating under the theory that the gunman may not have acted alone, although one person being sought was later found and cleared. Alexis was killed in the shooting, which broke out just after 8 a.m. at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters in southeast Washington.



Officials say one gunman is dead and two others may be at large in the shooting of at least 10 people, with 'multiple victims deceased.'


Rascovar Commentary: Perry vs. O’Malley – Early Presidential Showdown?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is poaching in Maryland. He’s camouflaged his Wednesday visit as an economic development pitch — including a $500,000 TV and radio ad blitz – to get companies to move from Maryland to low-tax, pro-business Texas.

He’s not fooling anyone.

It’s all part of Perry’s nascent presidential campaign for 2016. His move-to-Texas gambit comes with plenty of media coverage and new fund-raising contacts. He’s done it in other states that just happen to have important primaries like California, New York, Illinois, Missouri and Connecticut, where Perry needs to connect with Republican voters well before the 2016 GOP primary heats up.


Hero Dog Saves Baby From Abusive Babysitter

When 7 month-old Finn Jordan was being abused by his babysitter, no one was around to report her. No one but the family dog, that is. Killian, a shepherd mix, suddenly started acting violent towards the babysitter, alerting Finn’s parents to danger. He was normally a friendly dog so they knew something was up.

After the dog tipped them off, the parents left an iPhone in the room with Finn and the babysitter, recording what happened. When they came back to check the recordings, they heard crying, verbal abuse and slaps.


Florida Police Brutality: Woman’s Face Smashed Into Pavement During Arrest

I am appalled, disgusted, and outraged with the arrogance, corruption, and nonchalant attitude that is running so rampant across our nation by so called “police officers.” While the police are paid by citizens to protect us and keep the peace, more and more “officers” have become the abusive criminals we pay them to protect us from.

Politicians, Judges, and Police Departments all across the nation are involved with covering up “criminal actions” of “police officers.” They cover up in many different ways. Whether by being complicit with criminal actions of officers by not filing criminal charges, or by simply dropping charges against the “victim” hoping that these violations of human rights will disappear into the night never to see the light of day. Sometimes “officials” will place criminal officers on paid leave during an investigation to calm down the public “which amounts to paid vacation” for the out of control criminals with a badge. Paid leave “vacation” rewards “officers” for their criminal behavior instead of punishing them for their crimes and putting them in jail where they belong.

The Ocean City Police Department has recently established a new unit within the department. Beginning this month, the Special Enforcement Unit will be patrolling throughout Ocean City. The Special Enforcement Unit will be a proactive criminal investigative unit which will focus on working closely with the community to identify problems and solve crime. Officers assigned to this unit will primarily be working in a plain clothes capacity much like the department’s Narcotics Unit.

“The new Special Enforcement Unit will act as a stepping stone between our Patrol Division and our Criminal Investigation Division,” said Chief Buzzuro. “The Unit will look very closely at growing crime trends in various areas of Ocean City and serve as proactive crime fighters.”

With Crab Scarcity Comes Tough Decisions

WASHINGTON -- Next time you get a hankering for a Maryland crab cake, you better ask whether it's made with fresh crab meat.

Debbie Nelson, co-owner of Jerry's Place in Prince Frederick, says the supply of fresh crabs is thin.

"Maryland (crab) meat in particular, as delicious as it is, is really not as plentiful as some folks might think," she says. "Crabs are very scarce. Crabbers are pulling up empty pots."


A Comment Worthy Of A Post 9-15-13

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "SFD Calls For Service 9-14-13":

Well word on the street is that The city of Salisbury has currently started site work on the north end of Salisbury behind the Target building for a new "Emergency Services Building" which is going to house the Salisbury city police as well as a 24 hour paid paramedic crew and a paid 24 hour engine crew. Of course that all may be false unless the details come to the surface, but I don't think that another fire company is needed in the city of Salisbury as Delmar can handle anything on that side of town if needed. Like I said this was told to me by a few people so it could be a rumor but was also told that this information as been a well kept secret between the higher ups in the Salisbury fire dept. Maybe someone will investigate this.
