Irene Huskens has the wedding venue picked out: a charming bed-and-breakfast in southern Maryland. But the wedding is no sure thing.
The plans made by Huskens, a 43-year-old police captain, and her partner, Leia Burks, hinge on whether Marylanders make history on Nov. 6 by voting to legalize same-sex marriage. A “yes” vote, and the wedding is on. A “no” victory? Huskens is loath to consider it.
“There are a lot of Marylanders who want to set the precedent of equality who will vote from their gut for fairness,” she said at her colonial suburban home in Prince George’s County, where she and Burks are raising two adopted children.
Dating back to 1998, 32 states have held votes on same-sex marriage, and all 32 have opposed it. Maryland is one of four states with Nov. 6 referendums on the issue — and gay-marriage advocates believe there’s a strong chance the streak will be broken.
In Maryland, Maine and Washington, it’s an up-or-down vote on legalizing same-sex marriage. In Minnesota, there’s a measure to place a ban on gay marriage in the state constitution, as 30 other states have done previously.

I awoke this morning at 5am to the sound of my six month old daughter Amelia crying. When I entered her dark room I saw my wife, struggling to stay awake, holding Amelia in one arm as she was attempting to work on her barely lit computer screen with her other arm. My wife Paula is an entrepreneur and a business owner, she also happens to be a first generation immigrant, who suffered through much chasing her American dream–all of her hard work culminating in her pledging allegiance to our flag as part of her citizenship ceremony, still one of the proudest days of our lives.
I am writing of this incident because it succinctly describes a scenario repeating itself all over America today. Small business owners are making incredible sacrifices in the struggle to keep their businesses afloat. This is the reason the President’s “you didn’t build that” comment has infuriated Americans across the political spectrum. The simple fact is that my wife did build “that.” She built her business, through countless hours of hard work and a commitment to a quality work product. I marvel daily at the countless hours she spends at her home office designing and repairing small business websites. She is the very epitome of the American dream, collectively enhanced but most importantly, self-made and personally driven.
The President’s statements are equally infuriating because he is attempting to create a fissure between Americans where there isn’t one. No Republican I am aware of is running for office on a platform of no taxes, no roads, no teachers and no military. I cite these examples because the President chose to mention the use of roads, the work of good teachers and the development of the backbone of the modern internet, through a military research initiative, as examples of how government should be the primary recipient of accolades for individual success. This is absurd and displays a backward logic which is hard to justify. It is the very success of people, such as my wife, willing to put their names behind a business endeavor, with no guarantee of success, that finance the government’s spending and projects the President speaks of. It is my wife’s–along with millions of others struggling for a better tomorrow–sweat, toil and willingness to take a risk that has made America exceptional amongst nations, not its roads.
The economy is clearly struggling, Americans are hurting and they are scared. Scared, that for the first time, yesterday may have been the best it was ever going to be. This has never been a part of our national psyche. The President’s statements will haunt him in this election as they echo all over our vast country. As my wife and I struggle through this wretched recovery, I feel the pain of Americans hoping and praying that there is a better tomorrow and I ask the President to stop creating division by asking who built what, and to focus on getting our growing legion of unemployed Americans, just asking for a chance to build anything, back to work.

The Religious Society of Friends, also known as the Quakers, of which the Salisbury Friends Worship Group is a part, is a denomination or movement within the larger Christian community with a rich and interesting history. Originally a movement of the Holy Spirit in England, Quakers came to America and settled in Maryland, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Delaware, and other areas of the Northeast. They soon spread across the country and the world.
Today, Quakers continue to meet together for worship in meetinghouses, homes and other locations. While we honor our past, we seek to be a lively and vital Spirit-led community that reaches out to all with a living faith and hope in Christ Jesus, our Teacher and Lord who has come to teach His people Himself.
A Quaker meeting for worship involves the congregation gathering at a pre-set time in order to wait silently, remembering the promise of our Lord that where two or three are gathered together in His name, there He is in the midst of us. As led by the Holy Spirit, Friends may rise to sing, pray, read scripture, or minister in word to fellow believers, if they sense the Lord has truly given them something to share at that moment. All are welcome to worship with us.
Holding Christ-centered, unprogrammed meetings for worship the second and fourth Sundays of every month at 1 p.m. at Community of Joy church, located at 302 South Blvd., Salisbury, MD 21801. Telephone: (443) 735-6217, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Raven Hunter has a new cd coming out on July 4th, 2012. The name of the cd is “The Man From Planet X”
Listen to an older song of his, he has talent.
I have listened to the new cd and there are a few songs that stand out to me. “Irishman” and “Technology” seem to speak to me because of the trials of my life. I suggest people take a listen to his new cd. it is a quality cd, for around $10. Artists who are true to themselves is becoming more rare than ever.
Good luck my friend!

The Eastern Shore of Maryland isn’t known as a union hotbed, but members of Carpenters Local 2012 of Seaford, Delaware were recently spotted at an intersection close by the Target store in Salisbury.
A banner held up by a small group of union members read “Shame On Target For Lowering Area Standards In Our Community.” Since the Salisbury store is several years old, it was not clear if this was in reaction to proposed renovation work there or if the picketers were critical of Target in general. Like most department stores in the value-price retail segment, Target is a non-union store, but the chain is in the midst of a long-term program of renovations to existing stores.
The picketing is part of a long-term ongoing series of off-and-on protests throughout the country aimed at non-union businesses. Dubbed the “Shame On” campaign, the protests usually consist of a small group of picketers who hold up a large banner saying the business in question is having a “labor dispute.” While Target has a non-solicitation policy “to provide a distraction-free shopping environment for our guests,” the union probably had better visibility at that corner location than they would have at Target’s main entrance along a side road.
One bit of irony exhibited at the protest was that it was held at a time when construction workers would presumably have been working, mid-afternoon on a weekday. But the building industry on the Eastern Shore has been hard-hit by the recession – for example, the number of residential building permits in Wicomico County, where Salisbury is located, has plummeted from a peak of 828 in 2005 to just 107 in 2011, according to Census data. This streak of year-over-year declines has reached seven years in a row for Wicomico County, while nearby Worcester County – an area which saw a mid-decade building boom in Ocean City – is on a six-year slide. Given that trend, the building tradesmen working at Target should be thankful to have work, regardless of the wage.
Fairly or not, union construction labor has developed a reputation of being too expensive for most projects. My personal experience with union contractors and personnel is that those who have taken advantage of the training made available to union workers tend to be worth the small premium they generally charge because they put together a better quality of construction. However, that is more important on new construction or complex renovations, and not so much on a simple project like moving walls around in a large space like a department store.

Welcome and thank you for visiting our Campaign website.
A long shot, yes. However, our purpose for standing up and running for congress is quite simple: The message of Individual Liberty and Freedom and restoring our Nation’s Honor must be a viable choice for voters. We offer that.
We don’t anticipate raising hundreds of thousands of dollars and having entrenched political machines robo-calling and printing out wasteful mailers to voters which represent half truths and empty promises. We actually believe that is part of the problem with modern politics in America.
Many people are still looking to Washington and the two major political parties to solve all of our problems, actually problems they have created. They have nearly bankrupt our national wealth by devaluing our currency, spending astronomical amounts of money on wars, nation building and a myriad wasteful programs through a budget process that is broken. All of this set up on on a tax and regulatory system that is oppressive and has destroyed job creation in our country by forcing businesses overseas.
We can continue to elect people from the two major parties who disregard our Constitution by creating laws and giving our government powers not authorized by the Constitution. We can continue trusting the the same group of people to fix our issues of debt and oppression that created the problems. We can continue electing people who have allowed money and special interest to control their decisions and attack good people all for political expediency.
We can continue down this path and our country will continue in the direction that it is currently on which will lead to an economic collapse that will make the great depression look like a drop in the bucket.
Or we can truly change direction and elect people who respect the constitution and believe that decentralizing the power of Washington is of utmost importance. Individual Liberty and Personal Freedom must be a priority. Eliminating oppressive tax codes, laws and regulation to bring back an economic boom unlike any this country has seen.
We stand at a pivotal moment in our Nation’s history and the choice of electing the Establishment candidates seems like a safe choice. However, the Establishment politicians have brought us to this moment. I can assure you, we are not the Establishment candidate and our goal is to dismantle the monstrosity that the Establishment has created.

Ten days ago, Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly failed to reach a consensus on a budget to move Maryland forward. Now, there is more work to do. As Democrats, we know we need to come together to protect our investments in public education, affordable college and public safety — and we will come back to complete this important work.
The failure to pass a budget to move Maryland forward is bad enough, but the Republican reaction is even worse. When Republicans in Annapolis learned that the inaction by the Maryland General Assembly would result in more than $500 million in cuts to public education, public safety and social services, they cheered.
They cheered about the possibility of turning back Maryland’s progress over the past six years.
They cheered for cuts that will harm every school in every county.
More liberal lies? If government schools shut down, we would be better off!
They cheered for cuts that will harm every student in every classroom, every library, and every local police department.
O’Malleys lies are almost laughable!
They cheered for cuts that will raise tuition on every Maryland college student, make our community colleges less affordable and reduce funding for life-saving and innovative research and development.
For all of this, they cheered.
If there is ever a time to come together as Democrats, it is now. You and I both know that a modern economy requires modern investments, by all of us, for all of us.
Let’s do what’s right to keep moving Maryland backwards.
