Caribbean Joe's New Menu

New Menu At Caribbean Joe's @ The Alamo

Locals are truly catching on, Caribbean Joe's is the coolest place in west Ocean City to hang out. This weekend we introduced our new menu that includes our new mango and shrimp salad. Our "Cocoon Lagoon" swimming pool is killing it and our crushes are second to none. If you haven't visited yet, come by today and enjoy the perfect weather around the pool.  Just because the pool is open from 1 to 8 PM each day doesn't mean the Pool Bar closes. In fact we were slammed last night till 1:30 AM in the Pool Bar area. Come see what everyone is talking about. Great food, ice cold drinks, the cleanest pool on the Shore, great bartenders and entertainment. Change your plans today and come see us. 

A Viewer Writes....Mayor's Bike Lane Causes Confusion & Back Ups by PRMC

Picture taken at 2:45 pm Tuesday, 8/6/2019.  - These cars just missed the green light onto Carroll Street and immediately created this back-up on Waverly Drive for the Mayor's Bike Lane.  Each direction on Waverly Drive is now and forever a single lane.   This back-up/bike lane will easily block the entrance into the Emergency Room at PRMC and imagine what the back up will be at 5PM or when schools let out.

Posted 8/5/19  on Facebook by a PRMC physician:

Does the City of Salisbury plan on distributing a printed list of instructions detailing what to do if one finds himself in the unfortunate circumstance of traveling north on Waverly Drive? That paint job appears to be a drug-induced collaboration between Rube Goldberg and Pablo Picasso. If anyone finds me stopped in the middle of the street sobbing on my steering wheel, please help me out of the car and escort me safely to the curb.

Be careful what you ask for; you may be inviting vehicular euthanasia...; )

I saw someone weaving through cones last week.

It’s just stupid!

As a cyclist, I understand and appreciate what they were TRYING to do. It just seems like the execution is lacking. Maybe there's more paint to come which will clarify it all.

I agree but what I can’t understand is that cars have an inside leasing lane now... and we know that’s outside of being intelligent

I thought the same thing! Crazy

Jacob Day gave a full explanation on someone else's wall.  All will work out. Stay safe

I guess one has to be a Facebook friend of that person to see what's on his wall. I guess I'll just have to be patient and not kill any pedestrians in the meantime.

I was JUST talking about that crazy paint job! What in the world!?!?

Love Jacob Day.. but the execution of good thinking wasn’t carried out.

Jacob Day responds:   Wrong. Politicians don’t engineer streets. And the engineers did a fine job following the law. The construction isn’t complete.

I know that! It wasn’t an attack at all... u know me better than that!! I would do a public thing with that... I just think it’s crazy

Sounds like we need more patience, grasshopper.

I have none.

Jacob Day responds:   oh ok I got tagged so it seemed directed at me. I know we’re cool! My point is it isn’t a crazy or confusing design, it’s just not complete. That said, when complete, it will be a design that forces cars to slow down.

Separate argument ... crazy that we need to tell people to slow down.... in a residential area..... these people are stupid

it is a shame. But I will say this, while people should take responsibility for their speed, when a street is safe to move down at 25 mph but is designed to signal to drivers that it should be maneuvered at 50 mph, whose fault is it when they drive 50 mph? We can design streets to be safer. Yes, it will slow us down and people will be aggravated... but it will save lives.

It’s not complete. This is stage 1.

Jacob Day responds:  It’s in the middle of construction. When the contractor is done it will be crystal clear: it’s a standard 2-lane street, removing the old weaving pattern and compliant with the new State Vision Zero Law. The bike lanes (temporarily stripe-separated) will he separated with physical barriers.

Mayor Day, thanks for coming on here and putting us all at ease! What's the timeline for completion?

Jacob Day responds:  I’m not, sure since the contractors are not bound to complete projects within days. That said, our team will step in tomorrow if they aren’t done and will drop more cones in the interim until complete. The work that remains, I believe, includes all of the thermoplastic lane indicators, the final striping near Carroll, the vertical signage, the zebra barriers that go on top of the diagonal striping to keep cars out of the bike lanes and the vertical barriers to keep cars from turning into the bike lanes accidentally. I’ll share examples of those images in a second.

Jacob Day responds:  And the zebra/zicla barriers are intended to be temporary here as the striped area will eventually be replaced with curbed, planted medians.

I use Waverly multiple times a day, but since this started I am using Rt. 13 more. Seems it will work when finished, but right now I feel every one is confused and I am taking an alternate route.

Yup. I kept swerving back and forth between the “sections” bc I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to be. I know the people behind me had to think I was drunk.

I slowed down to 10 MPH.. Not sure if this was the best thing to do!

How is this allowed on Facebook?

I hope everyone will go to this Facebook page and report this picture.

The boy's mother Alicia Lawson (left), 25, and her partner Shatika Lawson (right), 40, face charges including child abuse, involuntary manslaughter and giving false statement

A mother and her female partner have been charged with manslaughter and child abuse after a four-year-old boy was found dead in a Baltimore dumpster.

Authorities including the FBI had been searching for Malachi Lawson after he was reported missing from the porch of his grandmother's home on Thursday, August 1.

Lawson, 25, helped police find Malachi's remains on Saturday in a metal trash bin, where the young boy's body was found with 'obvious signs of injury'.


Maryland Police Shoot and Kill a 61-Year-Old Man While Trying to Serve a “Red Flag” Order — Officials Say It Is “a Sign” the Law is Needed

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Republican lawmakers led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and his cohorts are discussing new “red flag” laws to take guns from “unstable” individuals.

Last November a 61-year-old Maryland man was shot dead while police were trying to serve him a “red flag” order.

The local officials said it was a sign the law is needed.

There’s more…
The police arrived at his house at 5 AM.

Cory Booker Demands All Trump Rallies be Cancelled, ‘Breeding Ground For Racism’

Never let a crisis go to waste, right?

The left is using the back-to-back mass shootings as an opportunity to attack the 2nd Amendment and now they’re coming for 1 A.

Democrat Senator and 2020 hopeful Cory Booker (NJ) demanded Trump’s Manchester rally next week and all future rallies be cancelled.

According to Cory Booker, President Trump and his supporters should not have 1st Amendment rights.

“[T]hese rallies serve as a breeding ground for racism and bigotry that inspire white nationalist attacks like the one in El Paso on Saturday,” Cory Booker said in a statement.

Cardin: 'No Justification For Private Ownership Of Assault Weapons'

Sen. Ben Cardin said there is "no justification for private ownership of assault weapons," Monday at a town hall held at an Annapolis retirement community, the Capital Gazette reports.

Sixty residents of the Ginger Cove retirement community gathered for a town hall meeting in which Cardin addressed the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, the Gazette says.

"People's lives lost by a white supremacist nationalist who believes in hate and acting out on hate," Cardin said. "We have seen this happen too frequently in our community, way too frequently. We saw it in Annapolis, the tragic loss at The Capital Gazette. We've seen it happen in individuals' acts of violence as well as in mass shootings."

680 workers arrested by ICE at Mississippi processing plant

MORTON — U.S. immigration officials raided numerous Mississippi food processing plants Wednesday, arresting 680 workers, most of whom are Latinos, in what marked the largest workplace sting in at least a decade.

The raids, planned months ago, happened just hours before President Donald Trump was scheduled to visit El Paso, Texas, the majority-Latino city where a man linked to an online rant about a “Hispanic invasion” was charged in a shooting that left 22 people dead in the border city.

Workers filled three buses — two for men and one for women — at a Koch Foods Inc. plant in Morton, 40 miles east of Jackson. They were taken to a military hangar to be processed for immigration violations. About 70 family, friends and residents waved goodbye and shouted, “Let them go! Let them go!” Later, two more buses arrived.

A tearful 13-year-old boy whose parents are from Guatemala waved goodbye to his mother, a Koch worker, as he stood beside his father. Some employees tried to flee on foot but were captured in the parking lot.



Eighty-eight percent (88%) of voters favor a legal process that protects individual rights but empowers police to take guns from people credibly reported to be public threats or mentally unstable. A new national survey found that only 12% disagree.

The public support for “Red Flag Laws” is little changed since last fall. It is found among every major age and ethnic group in the country. Ninety-two percent (92%) of Democrats favor the idea along with 89% of Independents and 82% of Republicans (see crosstab results).

Following the horrific news from El Paso and Dayton, support in Congress may be growing. On Monday, President Trump declared “We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do those firearms can be taken through rapid due process.”

Chris Rock is accused of racism after making 'Betty White' joke about gunmen in mass shootings being white
