Cindy A. Rose

AccuWeather says Saturday is going to be partly sunny with a high of 49 degrees and a low of 33 here in Frederick.  Weatherbug says Saturday rain with a high of 49, a low of 35 and Justin Berk, makes you jump through too many hoops for me to care what he has to say.

A Man Dies When He Refuses To Stand Up
Cindy A. Rose

Although Martin Luther King, Jr. never said “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” he did say “A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right.  A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice.  A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”

Local Councilman Gorging At The Public Trough
Hayden Duke

Congratulations! On January 16th, 2020 a new dependent was potentially added to your family. How, you ask? The Charter Review Commission voted 4-2-1 (in favor, against, abstention) to “remove current prohibition on paying County Council members fringe benefits.”

Progressive Finger Pointing
Jason Miller

The Progressive Democrats have started to understand that their best interests are served best when they are on the same team. As Joe Biden continues his dogged campaign itinerary in Iowa, Senator Elizabeth Warren is suggesting that Senator Bernie Sanders is a misogynist after a very public spat over comments that Sanders made. The drama played out on a nationally televised debate spat.

Tales From The Thin Blue Line
Guest Columnist

Seth Eisenberg

He became a police officer in 1973, starting pay was around $10,000 - $12,000 a year plus benefits and overtime. Over forty hours a week and varied working conditions. There were physical requirements that had to be met, height to weight ratio, timed running and other physical tests. Then on to the academy where they learn to shoot, drive and many other things. Then time with a training officer and if you pass all that, you can start to patrol on your own.

Guest Columnist

Karl W. Bicklel

Mr. Jason Miller, in his Back To You Mr. Bickel piece published January 8th seems to have placed the defense of Mr. Edward Burrell’s concerns about the County’s audit of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) 287(g) agreement with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) back in my court.
