Snow Hill Man Sentenced Following Conviction of Assaulting Officer

SNOW HILL, Md. – After deliberating for just six minutes, a jury found a Snow Hill man guilty of second-degree assault on a correctional employee following an incident last May, according to the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office.

Kenneth Foreman, 25, of Snow Hill, was charged on May 30 after correctional officers said he attacked one of them at the Worcester County Jail on May 16. The officer suffered injuries to his face and head and fractured a hand in the assault, prosecutors said.

According to law enforcement, Foreman's criminal history includes charges of a previous assault of a law enforcement officer, possession of crack cocaine, resisting arrest and attempted second-degree arson. This latest case was tried in Worcester County Circuit Court.

The judge recommended a sentence of three to 18 months, but the state's attorney's office said it asked for a sentence above those guidelines, leading to a 30-month sentence.

“This type of stiff sentence above the guidelines sends the absolutely appropriate message to the inmates at the Worcester County Jail – which is, if you assault a correctional officer you better have your bags packed for the Department of Corrections,” Oglesby said.

Reception For Mike McDermott

Parents Choice Endorses Delegate Mike McDermott

Parents Choice Endorses Delegate Mike McDermott
“He’s our Top Pick in District 38”-Parents Choice of MD
(Annapolis) Parents Choice of Maryland, a grassroots citizen organization, has endorsed Delegate Mike McDermott of the lower Eastern Shore for the Maryland Senate representing District 38 from Somerset-Wicomico-Worcester Counties.
Parents Choice states as part of its criteria for making an endorsement “We are looking for leaders who will do things to make life better for everyone.  We are looking for leaders who are focused on jobs, education, safety, the environment, our quality of life, transportation, equality, health care and retirement.  We are looking for leaders who are honest and transparent in their dealings and we believe that Delegate McDermott has earned his reputation as a leader in the Maryland General Assembly.”
In deciding that Delegate Mike McDermott met and exceeded these standards, Parents Choice noted his determination that government should exhibit common sense when it comes to taxes and spending priorities.  He has been outspoken on the need for transparency in government and has been at the forefront on introducing legislation that would make Maryland a better and more prosperous state. Delegate McDermott’s public safety background and knowledge has truly shaped major bills in the House and made the public safer as a result.
Parents Choice has also given credit to Mike for his support for women’s issues, particularly victims of domestic abuse; and his efforts to help preserve the Chesapeake Bay Trust Fund and for taking a common sense approach to restoring the Chesapeake Bay.
Parents Choice endorses both Republicans and Democrats, incumbents and challengers in its goal of seeking “…leaders who are committed to making Maryland stronger and better than it is today.”

5 Pinocchios for Jim Mathias

5 Pinocchios for Jim Mathias

“Capitulating verses Negotiating”

by Delegate Mike McDermott

It is not unusual for a politician to stand up and take credit for something they did not do. I have talked about the “posers” with those big checks before; but this week, Jim Mathias crossed a line when he stood up and took credit for the return of millions in local slot revenues  to Worcester County when nothing could be further from the truth.

When slots were first authorized in Maryland, Mathias was a delegate. He was elected and quoted on the record that he would not support or vote for slots. Yet, during the 2007 Special Session, he changed his mind, and his vote became the deciding vote when he voted for gambling in Maryland. The bill required Worcester County to fork over a million dollars a year to Baltimore City and another cool million bucks to Prince Georges County from the local government proceeds that would have stayed on the shore. Search if you like, but you will find no attempt to strike this payoff from the bill. (This has cost the lower shore millions of dollars in lost revenue since it passed).

When Mathias got back home, this pay off was soon discovered by local leaders and brought up in the press. When he was questioned about it, he claimed he did not know it was in the bill.

I’m not buying it.  After all, this bill was passed in a Special Session and was the sole piece of legislation they needed to consider. It should have been fought and eliminated; particularly if you were willing to cast the deciding 71st vote for a bill that would impact your jurisdiction significantly.

For several years, Worcester County and Ocean Downs Casino have been paying off Baltimore City and Prince Georges County.  All of that money could (and should) have been utilized for local spending. When I was elected in 2010, I was keenly aware of this wealth transfer and I looked for a mechanism to bring it back home where it belonged.

That opportunity presented itself in 2012 during our  2nd Special Session when the expansion of gaming was being sought. The issue was no longer about whether or not we would have gambling, rather it was about allowing a 6th casino to be built in Prince Georges County at National Harbor.  Gambling was no longer the issue.

This bill originated in the Senate and once again, I noticed that the payoffs to Baltimore City and Prince Georges County were still embedded in the legislation. There was no attempt by Mathias to remove these provisions from the bill.

When the bill arrived in the House, the Democrats were hunting for insurance votes to pass the bill.  I took advantage of the situation and spoke to the leader on the bill about the possibility of my supporting it. My demand was straightforward: return the local impact money to the citizens where the casinos are located. Depending on revenues, this could amount to $2 million each year that would remain on the lower shore.

To our benefit, they agreed to amend the bill and cut out the funding for Baltimore City and Prince Georges County as soon as Baltimore’s casino was open for business. In turn, I cast a deciding vote for the National Harbor expansion. The amendment was introduced by Delegate Dave Rudolph (D-Cecil) whose county also benefited directly from these local impact grants staying on the Upper Shore in Cecil County.

I could not help but see the irony of these two separate votes from two Delegates representing the same area:

  • Mathias casts the deciding vote that brings gambling to Maryland, establishes a casino in Ocean City’s backyard, and agrees to give Baltimore City and Prince Georges County $2 million of our money every year.

  • I cast the deciding vote that expands gambling to Prince George County alone and only after seeing the bill amended to strip Baltimore City and Prince Georges County from receiving one dime of our local impact money (returning $2 million to the Eastern Shore).

In a press release this past week, Mathias earned himself 5 Pinocchio's when he took credit “for amending the legislation passed in 2012” which returned the money to Worcester County. This represents a complete and utter falsehood.
The reporter took his word for it.  I do not believe the voters will be as trusting come November.

Speaker Boehner: House Is Ready to Work with President on Plan to Destroy ISIS, but White House Must Address Strategy Questions

Speaker Boehner: House Is Ready to Work with President on Plan to Destroy ISIS, but White House Must Address Strategy Questions

At his weekly press briefing, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said the House stands “ready to work with the president to put in place a plan that would destroy and defeat ISIL,” while underscoring the need for the president to address questions and concerns that remain regarding his strategy.  Following are Speaker Boehner’s remarks:

“Last night the president finally began to make the case that the nation has needed him to make for quite some time: that we must destroy and defeat this terrorist threat.  ISIL is a sophisticated and determined enemy, and in order to be successful we must have a comprehensive strategy designed to destroy and to defeat it.

“I think that last night the president made a compelling case for action, but as I said in my statement last night, there are still questions and concerns that remain.  For example, I support the president’s plan to train and equip Iraqi Security Forces and the Syrian opposition.  But I remain concerned that those measures could take years to fully implement at a time when ISIL’s momentum and territorial gains must be halted and reversed immediately...

Senate Democrats Would Overturn Free Speech Protections to Silence Critics

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate Floor today regarding Senate Democrats’ attempt to limit free speech:

“Earlier today, one Democrat Senator urged his colleagues to get serious about the real challenges facing our country – challenges like dealing with the threat of ISIL. He implored fellow Democrats not to focus all their time instead, quote, ‘doing things that are of lesser importance.’

“Yet, his voice seems to have been ignored by the Democrats who run the Senate. Because here we stand, debating their proposal on whether or not to take an eraser to the First Amendment... (READ MORE)

Chairman Rogers Introduces Short Term Continuing Resolution to Maintain Government Operations, Prevent Shutdown

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers has introduced a short term Continuing Resolution (CR) (H.J.Res.124) to prevent a government shutdown at the end of the fiscal year on September 30, 2014.

The legislation continues funding for government programs and services at the current annual cap rate of $1.012 trillion until December 11, 2014. This rate of funding will remain in place for the length of the continuing resolution, or until Congress approves the annual Appropriations legislation for fiscal year 2015. The bill is “clean” and does not contain highly controversial provisions.

Chairman Rogers gave the following statement on the introduction of the CR... (READ MORE)

Helping Families Keep Their Plan & Peace of Mind

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after bipartisan House passage of H.R. 3522, the Employee Health Care Protection Act, which would allow Americans in the group insurance market to keep or choose the plans they like

“In this tough economy, hardworking families need all the peace of mind they can get, and by helping them keep the plan they like, Bill Cassidy’s bill does just that.  It would mean getting more people back to work, lowering costs at home, and restoring opportunity.  Of course, to protect our workers from all of ObamaCare’s broken promises, we need to repeal this law and replace it with solutions that lower costs and protect jobs...

Take a Walk on the Pocomoke Nature Trail

September is here!   The sky is a bit clearer than the summer months.  We're having very pleasant temperatures.  Take a walk on the nature trail and see what late season blooms are out there!  Go outdoors and play, Pocomoke!

The Pocomoke community is so lucky to have a trail to walk on, to study wildlife, catch a fish or just find peaceful respite from a crazy busy day.    At this time, the access from Cypress Park is through a narrow walkway marked by orange webbing.  It is easy also to park at the end of Greenway Dr and walk from there.   Did you know you can walk all the way around Stevenson's Pond?    Find your inner peace on the nature trail!

Pictures from the Pocomoke Boat Docking yesterday

Amazing day on the Pocomoke River! Thank you to all of the captains, sponsors, committee and all of the supporters!!
- 1st place Small Boat Shootout winner Jamie Marshall
- 1st place Large Boat Shootout winner Steve Barnes

 Boat captains socialize after the Boat Docking Competition, but this was the end of a long exciting day.   I arrived just after sunrise to catch the early morning calm on the narrow but deep, Pocomoke River.  The competition was new to the town of Pocomoke  City last year, but already has made an impact.   Judging by the number of cars, trucks and motorcycles, the out of state license plates, this was a popular tourist opportunity.

 The crowd was large and enthusiastic!  In spite of an early drizzle in the sky, spectators came and spent a long afternoon.

 The large crowd came from all over the area, cheering on the boats and captains.

                                       Waiting in the middle of the river for a turn at docking.

"Friendliest Town On The Eastern Shore."  Our tradition runs deep.  Excerpt from a letter to the editor from a visitor to Newtown, (former name of Pocomoke City) published in the Baltimore Sun, April 28,1847.

This place (Newtown) is a pretty snug little village, containing about 500 clever and hospitable inhabitants; is has good wide streets, quite clear of that "eye sore," known mostly over the Peninsula by the name of "deep sand"; the houses, though built of frame, are generally built substantially and with some discretion and taste; there are two neat, new, and quite handsome frame churches in it; as for the merchants of the place, suffice it to state that they are very clever and hospitable.  F. Mezick, Esq., the landlord with whom I stopped, and his very obliging and jolly assistant, are richly deserving of a passing notice, for the good treatment and the extension of the many civilities to "the stranger."

BALTIMORE (AP)-  U.S. Circuit Court has been asked to declare unconstitutional Maryland's motion picture censorship law.

A Baltimore distributor, Robert T. Mahrenke, charged Wednesday that the censorship law violates the fourteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the first article of the constitution.

The complaint was brought after the state board of motion picture censors banned the showing of the film, "The Peep Shows Of Paris," at the Pocomoke Drive-in Theater in Pocomoke City.

POCOMOKE CITY, Md., Oct. 18.-   Pocomoke City is baseball crazy on account of yesterday's victory by the Athletics over the Chicago club.

Twenty-five died in the wool fans went to the Quaker City for the games. Some of them will follow the American League champions to Chicago.

Frank Baker, the Athletics third baseman, was a member of a fast semi-professional team which represented Pocomoke City three years ago. Hence the enthusiasm. There is not a Cub rooter to be found in Pocomoke City.
