Bishopville Residents Need Consideration
(The following letter was addressed to Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan with a copy forwarded to this newspaper for publication.)
I have just finished reading in the July 21 issue of The Dispatch your and Public Works Director Hal Adkins’s comments on improving the flow of traffic off the island. I was both alarmed and amused by comments made by Mr. Adkins concerning the traffic light at Route 90 and St. Martin’s Neck Rd. Alarmed that he obviously hadn’t researched his ridiculous contention that “if one person comes out of Bishopville and signals (?) the light, it ties up everybody leaving,” and amused that on any one weekend day from July to September between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. traffic is backed up on St. Martin’s Neck Road from said traffic light one to two miles trying to get in to OC.
Naxolone Vote Shortsighted
There are at least two sides to a topic or issue, including whether or not to provide inmates being released from prison with Naxolone. I understand policy makers being wary of doing something that, on the surface, appears to be a “pass” for addicts to return to their addictions. But after reviewing and witnessing stories and results of various perceptions, tactics, and programs surrounding addiction recovery, I believe providing inmates with Naxolone upon release is worth a five-year trial.
Wind Farm Support
As a supporter of offshore wind due to all the potential jobs and economic benefit it will bring to not only Eastern Maryland but Baltimore as well, I’m frustrated by Ocean City’s intractability on the siting of these wind farms.
