TIME MACHINE ... This Sunday's Preview

1899.. Pocomoke City is dealing with Smallpox outbreak successfully; 1996.. New dress code for Somerset County students; 1939.. Feds declare war on illegal Eastern Shore wildfowl trapping and selling; 1887.. Assateague's Green Run Beach; circa 1649.. (It was harsh!) "A Law Of Maryland Concerning Religion";  and more from a 1902 article about Tangier Island and its residents.

Although you may not find all of these items in a history book, they are a part of our local history and you can read more about it this Sunday right here at The Pocomoke Public Eye.  

Do you have a local memory to share with PPE readers.. such as a big snow storm, a favorite school teacher, a local happening, something of interest your parents or grandparents told you about?  It can be just a line or two, or more if you wish.   Send to and watch for it on a future TIME MACHINE posting!
