Virginia State Police Offer Rewards With New Program

The Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft Program (H.E.A.T) is looking for the publics' help in putting an end to the illegal towing of abandoned, disabled or otherwise unattended vehicles. This state-wide problem is the result of the rising price of scrap metal. In an effort to combat this problem, the H.E.A.T. Program is offering rewards up to $25,000 for information about illegally towed vehicles or salvage yards that are purchasing these vehicles.

These vehicles are being towed from the side of the road and private properties as well as from public parking lots. It only takes eight seconds to a couple of minutes for a tow truck to pick up a car and drive off. The cars and trucks that are being stolen are generally older, heavier vehicles. Ultimately, these cars are sold to salvage yards or demolishers for their scrap metal value.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to find an unmarked tow truck getting ready to haul off your vehicle. When questioned, the driver says he's at the wrong address, but can't provide the correct address. Or, your car has some engine trouble, so you pull off the highway, call a friend to come pick you up so you can get help, and when you get back to your car, it is nowhere to be found.

These are just two examples of how unscrupulous tow truck drivers get away with stealing abandoned or unattended vehicles. If you have any knowledge about illegal towing, contact the H.E.A.T. Hot Line at or 1-800-947-HEAT (4328). If you have information that leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a H.E.A.T. reward of up to $25,000 and you will remain anonymous.

The H.E.A.T. Program is also offering the following advice to help Virginia citizens hang
on to their vehicles.

Drivers should always lock your vehicle and take the keys.

Park in a well-lit area.

If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle pull in to the parking space. Rear-wheel-drive vehicles should be backed in to the parking space. Always set the
emergency brake.

Don't leave disabled vehicles abandoned on the side of the road. Call a reputable
tow truck operator or contact local law enforcement or the Virginia State Police.

Tow truck operators may attempt to coerce drivers into surrendering their vehicle,
which may result in the vehicle being shredded or held for exorbitant storage and
recovery fees.

Drivers should record all information about the tow truck, including tow truck company name and phone number, the truck's tag number, the operator's name and the tow truck's description.
The company name and phone number must be displayed on the side of the truck. Drivers should not let anyone tow their vehicle if that information is not prominently displayed.

If you have any knowledge about illegal towing, other vehicle thefts including motorcycles, or information about chop shops, contact the H.E.A.T. Hot Line at or 1-800-947-HEAT (4328). If you have information that leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a H.E.A.T. reward of up to $25,000 and you will remain anonymous.

Toddler Dies As Result of Traffic Mishap On Private Property

By Linda Baylis Spence

According to Sgt. Michelle Ayana of the Virginia State Police, On March 10, 2011 at approximately 12:46 p.m., Virginia State Police was called to the 24000 block of Dreamland Way in the Dreamland Trailer Park of Accomack County to investigate a possible fatality as a result of a traffic crash.

At approximately 1:00 p.m., Virginia State Police received a call from the Eastern Shore 911 dispatch Center, stating that the subjects left the scene and were currently in Onley, VA en route to the hospital with an injured child. An ambulance was currently en route to their location.

Trooper R. C. Brown was called to investigate and found the following; Edgar Perez, 24 years of age, was backing up a 1998 Nissan Van when he hit two year old Dayme Robelo.

Mr. Perez and Adela Roblero, Dayme's mother, took Dayme from the scene and were en route to Riverside Shore Memorial when they were intercepted by an ambulance that assisted in reviving the child.

Dayme Robelo died of her injuries and was pronounced dead at Riverside Shore Memorial.

The accident occurred on private property and no charges will be placed.

Jury Finds Son Guilty Of Second Degree Murder In Mother's Death

~~During the first day of this trial there was testimony from a caseworker that stated she had visited the home of Emily Molin and had found her wearing urine soaked clothing and eating at a table sharing utensils with cats. The caseworker made frequent visits to the home and determined that Emily Molin should be placed in a nursing home. Whether Ms. Molin was able to get into a cleaner facility or not she still couldn't escape from the one person that cared nothing about her. ~~

Written by: News Editor, Shawn J. Soper
SNOW HILL -- After deliberating nearly five hours yesterday, a Worcester County jury returned a second-degree murder verdict on a Pennsylvania man charged with running over his elderly mother several times near Berlin last August.

Steven Frederick Molin, 58, of Darby, Pa., faces a maximum of 30 years in jail after a Worcester County jury late yesterday found him guilty of second-degree murder in the death of his elderly mother on a dark, rural road. According to the facts of the case, and hours of testimony over two days this week, Molin ran over and backed over his mother as many as three times, resulting in the injuries that caused her death.

From the beginning, Molin described the incident as an accident, telling police his elderly mother, Emily Belle Molin, 85, also of Darby, Pa., had fallen out of the passenger side door damaged during another accident early in the day. Molin told investigators he merely backed over his mother as he reversed the vehicle in an attempt to pick her up, but evidence collected at the scene ran counter to his explanation of the events from the beginning.

The trial began with jury selection on Tuesday and both the state’s and defense’s cases were wrapped up by Wednesday afternoon. Both sides presented closing arguments early yesterday morning and the jury got the case around 10:30 a.m. The jury had several options to consider, including first- and second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter, and deliberated for several hours before returning a guilty verdict on the middle charge.

One juror, speaking on condition of anonymity immediately following the reading of the verdict, said there were considerable gaps in opinion to overcome in order to reach a verdict amenable to everyone.

“There wasn’t a consensus initially,” she said. “It took a couple of go-rounds before we could come to an agreement. It wasn’t a cut-and-dried situation. There was a lot of evidence that was hard to interpret.”

The juror said the jury was able to close the gap after going over the testimony and the evidence repeatedly.

“There were a couple of people hanging around involuntary manslaughter and there were more than a couple that wanted a first-degree murder conviction,” she said. “There were two camps, basically, and we were finally able to come around to a middle ground.”

For many on the jury, the case boiled down to pre-meditation, an essential requirement for a first-degree murder conviction. The anonymous juror said yesterday no one on the panel agreed with Molin’s claim the incident was just an unfortunate incident.

“Everybody felt certain she did not fall out of the vehicle by accident,” she said. “The real question was whether or not he planned it. I’m not sure any of us thought it was pre-meditated in the end. He was clearly very stressed and we weren’t able to say for sure if he drove here that night with the intention of killing his mother.”

Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby, who prosecuted the case on behalf of the state, said immediately after the reading of the verdict, he was somewhat disappointed with the outcome despite the second-degree murder conviction. However, Oglesby, who used the words “uncomfortable, unthinkable, unimaginable and inconceivable” to describe the crime during the three-day trial, respected the jury’s decision in the end.

“While I don’t entirely agree with the verdict, I respect the verdict,” Oglesby told Delaware County Times (Pa.) reporter Gil Spencer immediately following the trial. “We really believed we presented a strong case for first-degree murder, but I respect the jury’s decision. I truly believe justice was served.”

Shortly before midnight on Aug. 31, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office responded to a serious motor vehicle accident on Carey Rd. in Berlin just north of Ocean Pines. The victim, Emily Belle Molin, was transported to PRMC in Salisbury where she succumbed to injuries sustained from being run over by a motor vehicle.

From the beginning, Steven Molin did not deny running over his mother as many as three times, but has claimed the incident was an accident, caused in part by a faulty passenger side door on the 2008 Chevy work truck damaged in an different accident earlier in the day.

However, a Worcester County Sheriff’s Office accident reconstructionist, after reviewing the physical evidence and interviewing Molin, determined the victim had been run over three times despite ample opportunity by the suspect to avoid hitting her again after the first collision.

The accident reconstructionist, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Sgt Ed Schreier, testified on Tuesday if the victim had fallen out of Molin’s truck, he would have had to back up as far as 30 yards, or 90 feet, to run her over by accident.

In the end, the jury found Molin guilty of second-degree murder and a pre-sentence evaluation and psychological evaluation were ordered. Judge Thomas C. Groton denied Molin’s emphatic request to address the court following the reading of the verdict.

Massive Earthquake and Tsunami Hit Japan

TOKYO (Reuters) - The biggest earthquake to hit Japan since records began 140 years ago struck the northeast coast on Friday, triggering a 10-meter tsunami that swept away everything in its path, including houses, ships, cars and farm buildings on fire.

The Red Cross in Geneva said the wall of water was higher than some Pacific islands and a tsunami warning was issued for the whole of the Pacific basin, except for the United States and Canada, but Hawaii ordered the evacuation of coastal areas.

At least 22 people were killed in the quake and tsunami, Kyodo news agency said, and the extent of the destruction, and the forecast for the tsunami, suggested the death toll could rise significantly.

The 8.9 magnitude quake caused many injuries, sparked fires and the wall of water, prompting warnings to people to move to higher ground in coastal areas.

Pocomoke City Mayor and Council Meeting

Written by: Bill Kerbin
POCOMOKE CITY -- In adopting an automatic residential fire sprinkler system rebate ordinance, the Pocomoke mayor and council have moved in a different direction on home-sprinkler regulations than other towns and counties in Maryland.

Many other subdivisions have voted to allow a Maryland law that requires sprinkler systems in new single family homes to take effect for them, or have voted to opt out of the rule. In a compromise, Pocomoke will not require the sprinkler systems to be a part of new homes but will reward homeowners who decide to put them in.

The town will give a rebate to any homeowner who decides to install a sprinkler system in his or her newly constructed home during the next three years. The owner will receive a rebate of $2,000 or 50 percent of the annual real property tax, whichever is less. The system must be on the building's plans and, after being installed, be certified by the fire marshal.

At a town meeting, Will Stevenson made a request for funding assistance for the Mar-Va Theater in the coming fiscal year. He said that heating and electricity are the largest costs for the theater, where its financial books are up more than $7,000 over last year just through the end of February. He thinks that part of the reason is that the theater is having more performances, and guessed that cold weather this winter helped convince people to seek entertainment indoors. He added that there has been a problem with the new heating equipment, which he hopes will be corrected with a grant that the city obtained for the theater.

Councilman Bruce Morrison told Stevenson that the council will take up the request when the budget for the 2011-2012 fiscal year is discussed in coming weeks.

The city manager presented a plan from the EnerNoc Company to enter as an interface between Pocomoke City and Delmarva Power concerning power for the wastewater treatment plant. If the agreement is signed, Pocomoke City would turn on its generator at peak times during the year. The town should receive about $15,000 a year for making this move.

City Attorney Mark Tilghman raised some questions including the possibility of liability. He plans to contact the company to learn more about the agreement before the council takes any action.
The council also approved a bid from Renshaw Engineering for $1,791 for engineering services for the installation and wiring of power pedestals along the city dock.

Andrew J. Bowen, executive director of the Maryland Rural Water Association, was at the meeting to present the second-place National Rural Water Association award for the best tasting water in the country's rural areas. After winning the Maryland competition outright, Pocomoke's entry was sent to the national level where it won second place.

Under other business, the council authorized proclamations for Arbor Day and Fair Housing Month; authorized the renewal of a mutual aid agreement between the Pocomoke City Police Department and the Crisfield department; approved a proposal from PKS for auditing the town's books for the next three years; and authorized a full-page ad in the program for the Delmarva Firemen's Association Convention, to be held this year in Pocomoke City.

Amber Alerts May Soon Be Displayed On VA. Lottery Signs

Lottery displays in stores across Virginia could soon help state law enforcement locate missing or endangered children under a new partnership between the Virginia Lottery and the Virginia State Police.

Gov. Bob McDonnell said Wednesday that the Lottery has agreed to flash Amber Alert information on in-store displays on more than 5,000 clerk-operated machines and about 700 self-service vending machines at stores across Virginia. The idea was the result of a citizen suggestion submitted to McDonnell by e-mail.

During an Amber Alert, the electronic displays that normally show jackpot amounts and other marketing messages will show the location of the alert and instruct people to go to the Virginia Amber Alert website for more details about the child or abductor.

Messages will be automatically generated by the Lottery's data center when notified by the Virginia State Police, so retailers won't have to do anything when an alert is issued.

"Every second counts and the message needs to be spread quickly," McDonnell said in a news release.

While officials hope the help would never be needed, the Lottery is happy it can use its equipment and partnerships with retailers across the state to help law enforcement, said Executive Director Paula Otto.

The displays won't give descriptions of the child, the abductor or information like the abductor's car.

For example, if someone at a gas station is filling up next to a car holding the missing child or abductor, they wouldn't be able to identify them from the displays unless they went to the Amber Alert website.

But State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said simplicity is best when notifying the public and that many people have access to mobile devices to look up more detailed information.

The Virginia Amber Alert Program was established by the General Assembly in 2002. It has been used to issue 29 alerts for missing and endangered child cases that met criteria for activation. The public is notified through broadcast media as well as various alert systems and websites.

The "Golden Voice" Ted Williams - The Voice Of Fashion Week In Baltimore

Ted Williams, the homeless Ohio man who became an overnight sensation earlier this year, will be bringing his "golden voice" to Charm City in August when he serves as announcer for Baltimore Fashion Week, the event's executive director, Sharan Nixon, confirmed.

Williams signed a contract Tuesday morning that results in him live announcing designers each day of the four-day event. In addition, Williams will do radio spots and attend promotional events associated with Baltimore Fashion Week, which runs Aug. 18-21.

"When we finally found his information, and his agent said he wanted to come, I just started crying because I couldn't believe it," Nixon said. "Having someone of his magnitude say they are willing to be a part of my event is just fabulous."

Williams achieved instant celebrity in January after the Columbus Dispatch posted on its website a video interview of him where he demonstrated his voice by doing a mock radio announcement. The video hit YouTube and went viral — making him a household name. He has recorded voice-overs for various national brands and he's been offered a job announcing at games for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Williams has also had his share of troubles, including being detained in Los Angeles by police after an altercation with his daughter, and a brief stay in rehab for alcohol abuse after appearing on "Dr. Phil."

Nixon said she is not concerned that Williams' personal troubles will affect his appearance at her event.

"His agent has assured me that he will be fine," she said. "There won't be any problems. Everybody has their problems in life. It is not my place to wonder if he is going to handle himself accordingly as a special guest of Baltimore Fashion Week."

Williams is excited to attend Baltimore Fashion Week, according to his agent, Alfred Battle.

"We have not been in the Baltimore area," said Battle, who has known Williams for the past 25 years. "Surely there are some people who have been touched and affected by his story in that area. We want to make a personal appearance by those people."

Battle stressed that Williams would be ready for his trip to Baltimore. In fact, Williams is scheduled to begin taping a reality television show "Second Chance At Life," which will chronicle his life as well as allow him to give other homeless people a chance at redemption, according to Battle.

"Ted is doing wonderful," Battle said. "He is living in a sober living environment in Los Angeles. He's doing a good job with it, too."
The addition of Williams is the latest in an attempt to elevate the event's image, according to Nixon.

In January, Nixon announced that she was moving the event back to Baltimore after holding it at the Sheraton Baltimore North in Towson. The new site — a parcel of land near the Morgan Stanley building in Harbor East — will provide Nixon with the type of location she envisioned when she first launched the event, she said.

Easter Bunny To Be Unusually Late This Year

You will have plenty of time to dye Easter eggs this year.

Easter falls on April 24, the latest it has arrived in 68 years, according to the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington.

Easter hasn't come this late since 1943 and won't be this late again until 2038.

"In both 1943 and 2038 Easter occurs on April 25, which is as late as it can theoretically be," said Geoff Chester, an astronomer and public relations officer with the observatory.

Easter last occurred on April 24 in 1859, and it will not fall again on the 24th until 2095.

"The earliest possible date for Easter is March 22," Chester said.

Easter is generally the first Sunday after the full moon that follows the vernal equinox.

That is the case this year but not every year, because the precise definition — used by Christian churches under rules going back to the 1500s — is more complicated.

For example, that definition fixes the vernal equinox — the first day of spring — as March 21, although that date can vary. The equinox comes this year on March 20.

You'll have to work on those eggs earlier the next couple of years. Easter falls on April 8 in 2012 and March 31 in 2013 before falling back to April 20 in 2014.

International Women's Day - 2011

2011 United Nations Theme: National Women's Day

Equal access to education, training, and science and technology. Pathway to decent work for women.

2011 year marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. The day was commemorated for the first time on 19 March 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, following its establishment during the Socialist International meeting the prior year. More than one million women and men attended rallies on that first commemoration.

In 1975, during International Women's Year, the United Nations began celebrating 8 March as International Women's Day. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. The Day is traditionally marked with a
message from the Secretary-General.

Why dedicate a day exclusively to the celebration of the world's women? In adopting its resolution on the observance of Women's Day, the General Assembly cited two reasons: to recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security. For the women of the world, the Day's symbolism has a wider meaning: It is an occasion to review how far they have come in their struggle for equality, peace and development. It is also an opportunity to unite, network and mobilize for meaningful change.

The "Safe Haven for Heroes Act"

Rep. C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger will introduce (on Tuesday) new legislation that would make it illegal to protest at military funerals within the state of Maryland.

The "Safe Haven for Heroes Act" comes after the decision last week by the Supreme Court that says funeral protests, such as those by the Westboro Baptist Church, are permitted under The First Ammendment.

“We need to thank God for the service and sacrifice of our American military fighting for our freedom,” Ruppersberger said in a statement. “The right to free speech is a valuable liberty that we all cherish as Americans. While I respect the recent Supreme Court decision, I wanted to find a way to stop groups like Westboro from using military funerals as occasions to promote their own political agenda and inflict incalculable harm on the grieving families of our troops.”

Ruppersberger stated that the bill would enable groups such Westboro to exercise their right to free speech without disrupting the funerals themselves or forcing funeral participants to encounter the protesters.

According to the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center the Westboro Baptist Church protestors has been identified as a hate group. Westboro Baptist Church has protested nearly 600 military funeral in over 20 years.

Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital To Open New Suite

On March 9 Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital will open their newly remodeled, digital mammography suite. Digital mammography offers better visibility of the breast and improved detection rates.

According to President Kristin Webb, Several Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers worked many hours to raise $125,000, underwriting 1/2 the costs.

Mammograms play a central part in the early detection of breast cancer. The newer digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor for analysis and interpretation.

Because there is no film, patients can expect shorter exam times enabling Riverside to serve more patients quicker.

Digital exams also require less exposure time, resulting in a lower dose of radiation for the patients, an added benefit over a lifetime of screening exams.

Body Found On Assateague Identified.

The Maryland Medical Examiner has positively identified a body that was found at Assateague National Seashore last November as 36 year old Jung Han Lee of Silver Spring, Maryland. In late October, Dewey Beach Police found numerous personal items belonging to Lee on the beach, but an extensive search turned up no sign of the man. Lee was identified through a DNA sample and the ME says there was no sign of foul play.

Date & Time: November 6, 2010 @ 3:08 pm
Case #: 10-240
Location Occurred: Assateague National Seashore
Victim: Jung Han Lee Korean Male, 36 years of age Silver Spring, MD


Through investigation of the unidentified body that washed up on Assateague National Seashore, it was learned that the Dewey Beach Police Department was investigating a missing person. Several personal items were left on the beach belonging to Lee and family members had not heard from Lee in several days.

Lee had been under mental duress for several years due to being unemployed. The items left on the beach were forwarded to the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation. During an examination of the body at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, MD, no signs of foul play were noted.

Contact was made with family members who reside in Silver Spring, Maryland and an interview was held in December with those members. A DNA sample was obtained from Lee’s mother for comparison with the remains.

After comparison and analysis by a Virginia forensic lab, it was determined that the two samples matched. Investigators were able to positively identify the remains as those of Jung Han Lee. Family members were notified on February 11, 2011 which brings closure to this case.

The Dewey Beach Police Department closed their missing person investigation after receiving positive identification through DNA of Lee. Any further questions can be referred to the Dewey Beach Police Department at (302) 227-6363.

February 28st-March 4th, 2011

• Monday afternoon a joint hearing of the Judiciary and HGO (Health and Government Operations) Committees on the Medical Marijuana bill. As proposed, the bill would allow for the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes in Maryland and would establish a permitting and growing process by the government. It would also establish strict rules governing the prescription process by the medical community. The hearing was beneficial and many questions were asked, but some of the issues remain very complex. There is great concern that Maryland would become like California and also about how the permitting process would actually function for growing marijuana for medical purposes. At the hearing, I presented by amendment to the bill which would provide that use of marijuana for medical purposes could only be done through vaporization, ingestion, pill form, injection, or by any doctor approved medical device. This would restrict marijuana from being smoked and would insure that it is utilized through best medical practices. The bill has a long way to go, but it is on the way.

• Tuesday morning during session, it was announced that the Judiciary Committee would meet immediately after the close of business for a vote on SB-116, the Gay Marriage Bill. Well, we all showed up…except for two missing democrats…and we waited to vote. It became clear after about 15-minutes that the missing delegates had gotten the Wisconsin flu and had flown the coop. Of course, we demanded to vote on the bill but were told by the Chairman that he wanted to wait until the other two delegates could be present. Clearly, he knew he did not have th votes he needed to pass the bill out of committee. We waited an hour to vote that day, but it never happened.

• On Tuesday, the Judiciary Committee conducted hearings on the following bills:

1. HB-408: This bill seeks to address a gap in identity fraud where criminals use false names to create fictitious identities. This has become a new form of identity theft being utilized to defraud businesses of millions.

2. HB-484: This bill seeks to correct an omission from compliance with the Federal mandates of Jessica’s Law by creating a Sex Offender Registry for Juvenile Offenders. This is required for Maryland to come into compliance and not place federal funds received from the Department of Justice at risk. It is not required that the Juvenile Registry be available to the public, but it would be accessible by the Criminal Justice system and the registrants would be required to comply with registration monitoring the same as adult offenders. There was a lot of discussion on this issue and some on the committee struggle with treating juveniles in the same way we deal with adults. There may be a compromise that will work for all members, but we will have to see how this one works out.

3. HB-507: This bill seeks to require law enforcement agencies to report on any deployment or use of an Electronic Control Device, commonly called a tazor or stun gun. This legislation is part of an attempt by some to thwart the use of these devices in Maryland by placing burdensome restrictions on their availability and use by law enforcement and civilians. This bill would treat these weapons differently than any other weapon utilized by law enforcement, and I do not see it coming out of the committee with a favorable ruling.

4. HB-568: This bill seeks to ban the use of any proceeds from drug trafficking from being utilized by a defendant to secure legal representation. The law already prohibits the use of ill gotten gain from being used to compensate to knowingly be received by an attorney for compensation, but it currently exempts money from drug sales. Go figure! This law would make it a crime to do so and was met with opposition by some on the committee who took exception to the notion that this practice was ongoing in Maryland. As the committee is composed of be many trial lawyers, I doubt this one finds its way to the House floor for a vote.

5. HB-588: This bill seeks to ban the use of portable scanning devices by criminals who use them to gather credit card information when they are simply in close proximity to a potential victim. We saw a display of how criminals use these devices to simply retrieve credit card information by simply standing near an unknowing victim. This is a relatively new method and it was hoped by the sponsors that the committee would allow law enforcement to be proactive with this law. The committee appeared to like the law, but the Chairman was skeptical at this point.

6. HB-594: This is my bill which would require a certain category of Top Tier Sex Offenders to be monitored by GPS technology by law enforcement. The hearing went well, and the only hold up is in the cost of implementation. I am working with Parole and Probation to see if something can be worked out within the current law to accommodate the provisions of this bill. The only opposition was from, of course, two registered sex offenders. Of course, they painted themselves as “victims” and did not feel this approach was needed.

7. HB-663: This is a simple bill which would make it a crime to commit a crime of violence in the presence of a minor. This would be an add on charge, but it would address the egregious way some of our children are traumatized by adults.

8. HB-682: This bill seeks to require bail bonding companies to pay the full bonds of defendants that fail to appear for trial on a sooner rather than later time table. Many of the bondsmen came to testify about how this type of legislation would injure their business and attempted to show how they currently comply and the system, in their opinion, is not broken. After listening to testimony, it is clear that this is a very competitive business where bondsmen are undercutting each other on a regular basis to garner customers. There was concern expressed for companies which only require a person to pay 1% of the bond as a fee.

9. HB-781: This bill would extend the prohibitions on the drug Salvia so it could not be sold or marketed in Maryland for adults. It is already illegal for juveniles. It would not make possession a crime, but it would eliminate distribution within the state. As Salvia is not on the federal DEA list, I am not sure if this one will be leaving the committee with a favorable ruling.

10. HB-845: This bill seeks the banning of the drug Mephedrone. This is another synthetic drug being utilized form frequently in the state, but it has not been placed on the federal DEA list. The committee tries to work with the federal banning list as this allows for a seamless application of the law. The federal government also conducts intense studies and testing to determine if a substance should be on the controlled substance list. I believe there will be a “wait and see” approach on Medthedrone.

• On Wednesday, we had been working behind the scenes in reaching out to any democrats on the committee who may be having a change of heart about the Gay Marriage Bill. We talked about Civil Marriage amendment issues and the like with the focus on preserving the definition of marriage as it is today. We seemed to gain some ground and it looked like we had two votes coming over, but the pressure was being well placed from the Democratic side of the aisle. I saw the Speaker of the House come into our Committee Room on more than one occasion that day, and he was not happy. There were numerous visits by the highest ranking members of the House as they caucused with the hold out democrats who desired to “vote their conscience” on the matter. Sadly for them, their “conscience” had little to do with the desire of the leadership…it was just getting in the way. There would be no vote today either.

I have to give a tip of the hat to Delegate Mike Smigiel and Delegate Don Dwyer. They both led the opposition effort in the Judiciary Committee and it was their actions that helped delay the vote and kept the liberals off their game.

• On Wednesday, the Judiciary Committee conducted a hearing on the following bills:

1. HB-574: This bill would provide for punitive damages against a certain category of “high risk drunk drivers”. Those favoring the bill believe it would allow for monetary punishment of these drivers on a civil basis beyond the damages caused. While this seemed like a good idea, it was quite clear following testimony that this would undoubtedly result in higher insurance premiums for all Marylanders were it enacted.

2. HB-729: This bill seeks to preserve the rights of Marylanders who may sign onto a Class Action Agreement without full knowledge of their actions. It would tend to make these types of agreements unenforceable in many instances.

3. HB-765: This bill seeks to require the State of Maryland to claim the surplus funds established and held by the Attorney Grievance Commission and use them for general government purposes when those funds exceed a certain level. The account is currently at over 10 million dollars, but is apparently being addressed by the commission.

4. HB-797: This bill would require proper investigations be conducted on judges and other officers of the court when a complaint is filed and found to have merit. Following testimony, it was clear that there is general reluctance for these type of cases to move forward as a general rule. We heard some egregious testimony of alleged improprieties by more than one victim concerning officers of the court.

5. HB-921: This would require insurance carriers to divulge the amount of coverage liability a plaintiff in a court case may have during prelitigation hearings. There was disagreement on the impact of this type of disclosure as to whether it would help or hurt the process.

6. HB-1120: This bill would allow for civil claims to be filed against those who sell or furnish alcohol to individuals who wind up damaging property or injuring another party as a result of their intoxication. It seems the bill would take away from individual responsibility and place more on restaurant and bar owners who may be unwitting victims themselves of a previously intoxicated patron. This is a bill which would drive up the cost of doing business in Maryland through the need for greater insurance premiums.

7. HB-1126: This bill seeks to make provisions for jurors in Baltimore City to receive some type of parking compensation. I guess the delegate thinks the rest of Marylanders should pay for Baltimore City jurors to park their cars. Well, why not? Don’t we pay for everything else over there? There is also a companion bill to this one, HB-1136 which seeks to increase the amount of money paid by Baltimore City for those performing their civic duty. It would further require all employers to provide paid leave time for those serving on jury duty in Baltimore City. My thought is, if Baltimore City wants these things, let them pay the bill. The state is broke.

8. HB-1129: This bill would define Contributory Negligence in Maryland. There is great concern by the business community and those practicing law in Maryland that certain recent inquiries and actions taken by Chief Judge Bell of the State District Court seem to indicate his desire to see the age old definition altered. There were many arguing and pleading for the General Assembly to take action rather than wait for the Judicial Branch of the government to legislate from the bench. I am not sure if we will get a chance to vote this one out, but I sure hope we do.

• On Thursday, when we showed up for our committee session, again several delegates were missing in action. It became abundantly clear that these freshmen democrats were holding firm, but one of them was beginning to cave to pressure. It became clear, as the day wore on, that we would not be voting on SB-116 today either.

• On Thursday, the Judiciary Committee held the following hearings:

1. HB-162: This bill would create a criminal penalty for Child Neglect whereas, till now, this has only been applied civilly by the Department of Social Services as a means of action. This bill was presented by Lt. Governor Brown and his task force. It was generally well received, but was too broad and left a lot of things to be worked out before it could be passed. As a result, a subcommittee was created by the Chairman to study the bill and recommend changes to the full committee. I was honored to be selected as a member of the subcommittee and we will meet next week to address the issues in the bill with the Lt. Governor.

2. HB -407: This bill seeks to create a specific charge of cruelty to animals during an incident of domestic violence. While this may be a problem area, it was thought that there was ample law in place to address this issue.

3. HB-510: This bill seeks to enhance the penalties ascribed to the charges involving stalking and other forms of harassment. We heard from two victims who provided compelling testimony on the need to get tough. I will be offering an amendment to this bill which would provide that District Court Commissioners could not release a person on bond who is charged with violating the provisions of a Peace or Ex-Parte Order.

4. HB-582: This bill seeks to broaden the definition of harassment to include electronic communications and applications. This would include social media sites, emails, text messages and the like. This bill was well received.

5. HB-667: This bill would provide that a Final Peace Order could be up to one year as opposed to the current limit of 6-months.

6. HB-819: This bill would include “strangulation and suffocation” under the current criminal definition of a “serious physical injury”. We received testimony which indicated that this type of injury often is underreported and not obvious to investigators, although it can be a very serious medical issue for the victim.

7. HB-859: This bill would broaden the use of out of court statements made by a victim of child abuse. It would allow caseworkers and counselors to testify as to hearsay evidence of a victim. During discussion, it was agreed that the language of the bill needed to be tightened up and amended before it would pass out of committee.

8. HB-872: This bill would require GPS tracking of Respondents under the decree of a Final Protection Order. This bill met with stiff opposition as the government would be tracking individuals who are not charged with a criminal act. I do not believe this one is coming out of committee. It was interesting to me that the ACLU showed up to protest the GPS tracking of Sex Offenders, but were a no show in this instance.

9. HB-968: This bill has been named, “Justice’s Law” by the sponsor in honor of the child who was murdered and charged under the Child Abuse statutes. Under the law, the defendant could only receive a maximum sentence of 30-years. This bill seeks to provide the judge the ability to sentence a defendant up to Life in prison if convicted. This bill makes a lot of sense and certainly would find application in the courts when it comes to sentencing bad guys.

10. HB-1018: This bill seeks to provide an applicable distance in a Protective Order issued by a court whereby a Respondent could not come within a designated distance of the Petitioner. After hearing testimony, this seemed to be more of a problem with court interpretation of the current law rather than a loop hole being exploited.

11. HB-1019: This bill seeks to create and define “reasonable corporal punishment” in Maryland. It was interesting to me as this bill was being proffered by advocates who believe this type of parental punishment should be banned in Maryland. Parents need to keep their radar up on bills such as these that seek to take away or limit their ability to correct their children in the way they deem appropriate. Abuse should never be tolerated, but these folks would eliminate spanking altogether if you gave them the chance.

• On Friday morning, the Eastern Shore Delegation met with several folks from the shore including representatives from the Salisbury Zoo. They provided us with information packets on updates and the pending expansion of their facilities as well as their ongoing capital campaign. They are seeking a bond grant of $200,000.00 (state debt) for an Animal Health Clinic and a new Visitor/Environmental Center. Zoo Director Joel Hamilton did a nice job presenting their progress and expressing their need for support. Del. Conway and Del. Cane have already forwarded a bond bill to address the request for funding.

Also making a presentation were folks from the Teackle Mansion in Somerset County. They are also engaged in a major renovation project and are attempting to secure some funding from the state through a bond bill. They recently completed work involving the replacement of their HVAC system and are now working on the interior restoration.

The more lively discussion we had at the meeting came from the various representatives from several Local Management Boards across the shore. We heard specifically from Caroline County’s board as well as Dorchester County. These boards assist local government in distributing funds for various programs providing services to children in our communities. Over the past two years, the administrative funding for these programs has been greatly reduced by the state and they have struggled to maintain personnel so as to adequately manage their programs. The boards were complaining that they have funding which they should be able to access to help cover these administrative costs while times are bad in the economy and their funding sources are so depleted. Rosemary King, the Executive Director with the Governor’s Office for Children was also in attendance and spoke to the delegation about the expressed concerns. She clearly sent a message that the available funds must be used for programs and not address administrative costs. She felt strongly that they had gone the extra mile in the past two fiscal years to allow the various boards to adjust their spending and personnel needs to meet the new normal and she was disinclined to make any further provisions for future requests. The exchange was back and forth with ideas being offered and it appears we will continue to negotiate with her office on ways to assist the LMB’s as they continue to provide these much needed services to our folks back home.

• Friday, the drama surrounding the committee vote on Gay Marriage came to a head. The bottom line is, the democratic leadership was able to stiff arm the votes they needed in the committee to get it to the floor, so they quickly scheduled the vote Friday afternoon. There was a spirited debate from both sides, but I believe the compelling arguments were with those in opposition to the passage of SB-116. There were so many television cameras in the committee room, you could see little else. Clearly we were a divided committee. The Republicans on the committee were joined by three (3) Democrats in opposition, while those in favor were all Democrats. The final vote was cast by the Chairman to pass the bill on to the House floor.

I watched and participated all week long as our committee members worked to sway votes. I can tell you that if those votes were cast by secret ballot, there would have been several more “no” votes cast on Friday and it would have been defeated. On the floor when the entire House votes next week, I believe one or more of our committee members who voted for the bill will vote against it for Third Reader. I also do not believe the supporters of SB-116 have the needed votes for passage at the present time. The floor debate will, no doubt, be long and arduous. In the end, it would have always been better to let the voters decide at the polls in 2012; and, if the vote is favorable in the House, I’m quite sure the bill will be petitioned to referendum in Maryland.

I have to say after this week, the meetings were long and exhausting and the Eastern Shore never looked so good as when I crossed that bridge late Friday afternoon.

Afghan President Rejects US Apology Over Killings

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Afghanistan's president on Sunday rejected a U.S. apology for the mistaken killing of nine Afghan boys in a NATO air attack and said civilian casualties are no longer acceptable.

According to a statement from his office, Hamid Karzai told Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, that expressing regret was not sufficient in last week's killing of the boys, ages 12 and under, by coalition helicopters.

NATO has also apologized for the mistaken killings. Civilian casualties from coalition operations are a major source of strain in the already difficult relationship between Karzai's government and the United States, and they generate widespread outrage among the population.

"President Karzai said that only regret is not sufficient and also mentioned that civilian casualties during military operations by coalition forces is the main reason for tension in relations between Afghanistan and United States," the statement said. "It is not acceptable for the Afghan people anymore. Regrets and condemnations of the incident cannot heal the wounds of the people."

The killing of the nine boys took place on March 1 in the Pech valley area of Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan.

Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez, who directs day-to-day operations of coalition forces across Afghanistan, later issued a video statement of apology.

Hundreds of people from a left-wing political party marched through Kabul to protest U.S. military operations and demanded the withdrawal of foreign troops
They chanted "death to America, death to the American government" and carried pictures of Afghans killed or wounded in recent airstrikes. They burned an effigy of Obama.


Muslims Call for Demolition of Statue of Liberty

If flying jets full of innocent civilians into the World Trade Center wasn't perfectly symbolic of Islam's relationship to America, how about this — Muslims are calling for the demolition of the Statue of Liberty. From Shariah 4 America:

The Statue of Liberty, designed by Frederic Bartholdi, stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor; representing Libertas, the Roman (false) goddess of Freedom, it is symbolic of the rebellious nature of the US constitution that elevates the command of man over the command of God.
In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.
Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators.
Post demolition, it is recommended that a minaret be built as a fitting replacement, allowing the glorification of God to be proclaimed daily as well as act as a powerful reminder of the superiority of Islam over all other ways of life.

It reads like a joke at the expense of Islamic arrogance, but the site actually seems to be on the level. Not that this will dissuade any liberals from reflexively siding with Muslims against the Americans they want to kill or enslave.>>

Teen rises to fame channeling Johnny Cash


Discovered singing on a Seattle street, Vince Mira, 15, is a somewhat shy kid who looks uncomfortable during a TV interview. But when he steps up to the microphone to sing Johnny Cash's classic "Ring of Fire," the result is downright spooky. He performs the song in this Good Morning America segment.
