EASTON, Md.- Many Talbot County residents are starting to wonder why Vibrio Vulnificus, an infection that hits hard and fast, is unfortunately becoming a more common occurrence this year.
 
Rob Newberry wants to make it clear.  He isn't accusing anyone of anything. But he does have some questions that he wants answered.
 
"I just think they need to test this material to see if it might contain some of this bacteria." said Newberry.
 
The all too familiar material he is worrying about is the fossilized shell currently being dumped in the Little Choptank, and formerly in Harris Creek.  Some watermen believe that more vibrio, which United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is common to the gulf coast, was brought to Maryland via this shell.
