    Traffic control devices should be banned! This is a prime example of the ridiculous need for trees and poles along the roads! We should allow these impaired drivers to put everyone at risk without judgement or prejudice!

        “ doing it right. & you sound stupid.” Thanks for the valuable and insightful lesson.

        Must say – reading both posts – YOU are loser here.

        What an inferior IQ you must have to question the sarc validity here, when it was so obvious.

        But then YOUR pussified attempt to attack is even more pathetic.

        For you to call someone else stupid is the pure definition of the word “hypocrisy”.

        Stay in the tobacco field, “farm boy”.

      Nailed it!…the pole that is.

    • Can't stand ignorance on October 17, 2019 at 4:37 pm

      U’re truly ignorant if u weren’t being sarcastic. Those poles help tge pedestrians so they don’t get hit by crossing the road. Hate to see u behind the wheel.

      • Are you stupid? on October 18, 2019 at 11:45 am

        Are you a moron? Do you not understand sarcasm?

        • You asked the right questions. But the truth is even more tragic. on October 25, 2019 at 6:22 am

          I know – can you believe that such people are actually existing around us every day?
          driving cars? VOTING?????

          This amount of dumbed-down stupidity is what makes it embarrassing to live in South Maryland.

          People start to think that these retards make up the entire area.

          “Stupid” barely even covers it. No wonder the democrats control the state.

          So sad.

        What a bunch of a## holes! The girl that was a passanger was seriously hurt. Think before you post!

        • Trolling Hard on October 22, 2019 at 4:57 am

          We did think. That’s how we were able to put together a coherent comment unlike some others that post gibberish on here.

        • Are a## holes worse than idiots? on October 25, 2019 at 6:26 am

          See the red underline on your post?

          That means you can’t spell.

          But if you right-click, the program will fix it for you.

          Try it next time you start calling the kettle “black”.

        Really?! You have nothing better to do than critique on a persons writing when obviously it was a mistake. Get a life! Ignorant

    You have to give them credit. Just inches from hitting that pole dead center. That takes skill.

    Why such concern up there? Obviously your super pressed to get on a small town website and troll a bit? I’m a “st Mary’s people” which neither am bored or drink at all. I’m sure it was a bit more than alcohol if your nosey up there amaybe you can be a detective and get right on the case.

    Check next weeks sheriffs report. He was on his way home to Calvert

    • Anonymous on October 25, 2019 at 6:42 am

      That has to be a lie since YOU are saying it.

      But the part about YOUR county’s sheriff’s report taking a week to discover the route is believable.

    So… Why did the female allow him to drive under the influence? She is just as bad!

      Another question is Why in the hell did she get into a car with a drunk driver?

    • Oh REALLY? on October 25, 2019 at 6:44 am

      Now there’s a real help.

      The idle mindless phrase posted as usual “prayers and services”.

      WTF does that even mean?

      Services? Is that an oil change?

      Why can’t these bumpkins post complete sentences? with HONESTY?

    Remove the hood and he might be able to see the roadway more clearly, or is that just a lice treatment cover?
