Berlin police ask residents to ‘Move Over’ in September

Posted On: 9/3/15
Written By:

(Sept. 3, 2015) The Berlin Police Department will be focusing its attention and educating the public on the “Move Over” law throughout the month. Maryland now requires motorists who are traveling in the same general direction as a stopped emergency vehicle to change lanes. The law stipulates that a stopped emergency vehicle should be flashing its lights, and a stopped emergency vehicle could even be a tow truck. Motorists are required to change to a driving lane that is not immediately adjacent to the lane in which the stopped emergency vehicle is parked. Drivers who see an emergency vehicle pulled over on the side of a Maryland highway should move over to a non-adjacent driving lane or, in instances where that’s not possible, slow to a safe speed. According to Maryland law enforcement, 2,600 motorists were cited in just two months in late 2013. Tow trucks are a new addition due to cases of AAA truck operators getting hit while assisting motorists of br...

After 12 years, shelter cat finally finds forever home

Posted On: 9/3/15
Written By:

After 12 years, shelter cat finally finds forever home (Sept. 3, 2015) More than a decade ago a gray tabby named “Momma” arrived at the Worcester County Humane Society in need of a loving forever family. And then for the next 12 years, she waited. Thanks to Patrick Campbell Priest, WCHS employee and volunteer, Momma’s wait is finally over. “I had room for one more furry family member in my home and it meant a lot to me to be able to adopt Momma because she had been at the shelter for so long,” Campbell said.  “She is adjusting nicely and brings me more joy than I could have ever imagined.” Momma had earned the unfortunate status of being the shelter’s longest adoptable feline resident. She outlasted hundreds of cats who were adopted and had been at the shelter longer than many of its employees and volunteers. Before she left, employees took the time to wish her a bittersweet goodbye. The Worcester County Humane Society currently houses more than 150 cats. Of the cats who reside at the...

(Sept. 3, 2015) Nationally recognized wildlife artist Paul Rhymer has partnered with the Lower Shore Land Trust to bring attention to the plight of the Northern Bobwhite and to raise funds for conservation of habitat. The iconic game bird, the Northern Bobwhite, was once plentiful across Maryland, yet due to habitat loss and changes in land management, populations have nearly collapsed.
