In Remeberance of September 11, 2001

Seven years ago today the world was changed forever. Over 3000 people perished that day in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. Many more have passed since as a result of injuries and health problems incurred that day and the months that followed during the recovery and cleanup. Among those fallen were 343 firefighters serving the people of New York City. Men that unselfishly entered the towers in an effort to rescue and assist as many people as possible. Many of those have yet to be found or their remains identified to give closure to the families. I dare say some may never be found. The names of these 343 firefighters are emblazoned on a memorial plaque (pictured above) at the National Fire Academy in Emmittsburg Md. Remember these men and all the victims of that horrible attack today as we observe Patriot Day in their remembrance.

Mike McMullen Tournament Results

It turns out to be a beautiful day for the teams that signed up to play ball in the 3rd annual Mike McMullen Softball tournament sponsored by the Salisbury Fire Department.

The entire tournament was held on Sunday September 7th due to the fields being shut down on the sixth because of Tropical Storm Hannah. It made for a long day and I am told the mythical creature "Dragonass" arrived in the afternoon and had an effect on some of the players.
Top photo Salisbury Assistant Chief Jim Gladwell sending a ball on it way to the outfield during a game with "Bad Mojo", the team sponsored from the west side of the county. In the second photo Assistant Chief Bryan Records on defense at third base during the same game. "Bad Mojo" won this game against Salisbury and went on to place 2nd in the tournament.
Final results were:
1st place--Talbot EMS
2nd place--Bad Mojo
3rd place--Strokers (from the Churchhill Area)
A great time was had by all and the monies raised from this tournament go to the Michael J. McMullen EMS Scholarship at Wor-Wic Tech, and the Fire and Rescue Service Suvivors Scholarship at Salisbury University.
The Salisbury Soapbox wishes to thank all those attending the tournament either as players or supporters and here's hopping we will see you again next year.
