BREAKING NEWS: Naylor Mill Exit Closed On Bypass Due To Vehicle Fire

At the moment the Naylor Mill Rd. exit off the Bypass is temporarily closed due to a vehicle on fire. 

This is a serious problem as this is the main detour exit from the Rt. 13 ramp that has been close. This means travelers will have to go to the Royal Farms in Hebron and make a u-turn and we all know how unsafe that is.

I knew this was going to be a fustercluck when they started it! The lights are not timed properly - or synchronized in any manner that actually makes sense...causing people to run the lights - probably what caused the accident at the root of this day's issue!

Yawn. I'm going back to reading Jimmy Gladwell's attacks on this blogger on his FB page.

So after reading some FB posts referencing comments on a local alternative news outlet, I decided to do something foolish by visiting said outlet and seek the thread referencing the aforementioned posts. As usual, I regretted doing so and one day hope to attain the ability to listen to my own reasoning and refrain from giving in to temptation.
Said news outlet continues its onslaught of attacks on members of the SFD. It calls out numerous officers about alleged events in their past, ineffective leadership qualities, lack of qualifications, credentialing, blah, blah.... One post by a brave anonymous Chairborne Warrior specifically states that Bryan Wayne-Records and I struggled just to make it through high school and there is a subsequent brave anonymous expert who lists all the officers and challenges any other of the news outlet's bravest to anonymously challenge any/all credential information of those members listed. I thought about this a bit and decided I would assist them with their research.
As Bryan graduated ten years prior to me, I can't/won't speak for his high school transcripts, however:
I did "struggle" in high school. At age 16, I lost my first child. Poor decisions on our part (girlfriend, at the time) led to some pretty difficult times and subsequent decisions were made for us that led to that loss. It was beyond life altering and to this day I wonder: "What if?"
My immaturity, inability to get along with my parents, and other factors led to me leaving home at 17. Most kids don't do that and I learned the hard way, why.
Nonetheless, here's how my high school "struggles" ended up:
Graduated Top 10% of class of over 200 graduates.
National Honor Society
Who's Who Among American High School Students for athletics, academics, and band
Lettered in soccer, wrestling, track, and academics
Achieved all required credits for graduation by junior year. At the time, had to take four years of English, so had to return for senior year just to do so. Enrolled in college English and a work release program and obtained two jobs in the (old) Salisbury Mall. Have worked multiple jobs the majority of my life.
So, yes. Perhaps I struggled, some. But I did ok. I'd wonder how this anonymous hero would know how I did at anything in high school?? Anyway.....
As for my lack of credentialing to obtain/hold my current rank/position:
The Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI) is this state's training program institution and is a subsidiary of the University of MD, College Park. It sets curriculum, standards for same, hours required to meet standards, pass/fail testing criteria, etc...and is one of the leading entities for fire/EMS/rescue in the country. It also maintains a training record repository of all classes/programs individuals enroll in through the institute.
My training record is four pages long. It includes: Essential I-IV, Emergency Vehicle Ops, Hazmat Ops, Hazmat Technician, Hazmat Incident Commander, Emergency Medical Technician, Numerous advanced rescue technician classes to include rope, confined space, trench, high angle, vehicle, farm machinery, grain bin, and water; Coast Guard Boat Operator, Inspector I & II, Instructor certifications, Fire Officer I-IV, FD Safety Officer, all National Incident Management System (NIMS/ICS) classes available, Pumps, multiple strategy and tactics courses, Wild land Interface Firefighter, and numerous other classes that space prevents listing. For nine years I was a Cardiac Rescue Technician (just short of paramedic).

I've attended the Fire Department Instructor Conference (FDIC) in Indy and New Jersey (Indy is the largest training conference in the country) where I've participated in advanced single-company fire/rescue drills as well as practical/didactic classes on structural collapse. Some of the greatest fire instructors in the world present at Indy where 30,000 firefighters group together to train/learn/network each year.
I obtained my Red Card with the MD Forestry Service and have battled wild land blazes in Colorado, California, Nevada, and Oregon.
I am a Level III Fire Service Instructor and have been employed by MFRI for over 18 years. During my tenure, I've taught literally thousands of hours and thousands of students, including many Fire Officer classes (FO I & II) to many of the existing officers in the surrounding area. Brother David Merritt and I have shared the top spots as the highest rated MFRI instructors, not in the region, but the entire state, for Hazmat Ops and EVO several years running. We don't get to rate ourselves. Students and College Park compile that data.
I'm into my 27th year of this firefighting journey. Ive been a part of many exciting and unusual calls. Until the last several years, I never much cared to take the time to actually credential myself. I took the class and obtained the knowledge. That was what was important to me. I didn't care if anyone else knew what I had accomplished. All I cared about was obtaining that knowledge and applying it when necessary.
As I advance in my career and saw what a ridiculously litigious society we were becoming, I realized the necessity and importance of credentialing and started getting all my work Pro Boarded (officially credentialed). I even made the decision to obtain a college degree and at age 46 finally obtained that goal, as well. I need to further advance that degree.
So to my Anonymous fan club, here's a quick snap shot of what makes me qualified to do what I do. Your love for me inspired me to do the research that you requested, for you. The sad thing for me is that many of those names you listed/questioned have more credentials than do I. Some have very advanced degrees such as Masters and one is currently enrolled in the Executive Fire Officer program at the National Fire Academy. That's as good as it gets.
As for my friend and mentor Bryan Records, there's times when we don't agree on specifics, but I'd like to know what he's forgotten over the years. At nearly 60 years young, he's still one of the best firefighters, anywhere. As are many on your little list.
This epic post may sound boastful and cocky. It isn't intended to be but I'm over the ridicule me and my peers receive from arm chair bandits who hide behind the safety of anonymity. If you desire to question our credentials; fine. I'm up for your challenge.
Where's yours???? That should be a good read.

Hey Joe, I just read this in the News rag online. What is the Worcester County Sheriff's Office doing a traffic stop and making an arrest in the City limits of Salisbury? Her is the story. I'm happy they did. Got 3 thugs and a gun off the street. Many thanks to the Worcester County Sheriffs Office for making Salisbury Safer.

Traffic stop leads to 3 arrests on gun, drugs charges

A traffic stop in Salisbury on Monday led to the arrest of three people on firearm and drug trafficking charges after a loaded handgun and marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found in the vehicle, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office said.

Charged were: driver Kaevon Quishi Cutler, 22, of Princess Anne, and two teenagers, Nicholas Tyler Garnett, 17, and Joshua James Wootten, 16, also of Princess Anne. Both teenagers were charged as adults, the sheriff’s office said.

A deputy with the Community Action Team of the sheriff’s office conducted the traffic stop in the area of East Main Street and North Park Drive in Salisbury, Detective Cpl. Jordan Banks of the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

He said deputies found a semi-automatic handgun loaded with 11 rounds of ammunition during a “probable cause search” of the vehicle.

The handgun’s serial number had been obliterated. Marijuana, scales and bags all consistent with controlled dangerous substance distribution were also found in the vehicle near the handgun, Banks said.

All three were charged with possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, possession of a regulated firearm by a prohibited person, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and illegal possession of ammunition.

The three were being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center, he said.

To Jimmie Gladwell, I don't have the time to read your verbose posts but I will say this. This "alternative news outlet" is called Salisbury News. Now let me say two things. One, we have over 53,000,000 hits on this so called "alternative news outlet" and I challenge you to ask WBOC, WMDT and the Daily Times what their traffic is and Jimmy, you know me, you are welcome to my home any time you like and I will personally show you out up to the second traffic any time you like.

The second thing I want to say is, it is NOT the "alternative news outlet" making the statements you have mentioned, IT'S COMMENTS. Just because we publish comments doesn't mean we AGREE with them.

Please be more careful how you word things from here on out.

Joe, Jimmie Gladwell is a Royal Ass that is in love with himself. He thinks he is Gods gift to firefighting, but he is nothing but a midget trying to act tough. His email username is something like "mity_mouse" because he things dynamite comes in small packages. ROTFLMAO

Wherever you got your information from, "the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office said" is a mis-print. It was a Wicomico County deputy that made the stop, and Wicomico County that issued the statement.
