Movin’ on up!

County schools will announce Teacher of Year ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

The final stages of Boardwalk reconstruction are under way, with the wooden promenade having been rebuilt up to about Ninth Street. The current phase of renovation will go up to 15th Street, above which was rebuilt last winter. The project includes not only re-decking, but also extensive renovation of the supporting substructure to include concrete rails, which will help bear the weight of the tram. As of the city’s last tally, the project was also a whopping $1.65 million under budget, due to the contractor’s ability to re-sell the used OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES decking instead of having the city pay to dispose of it.

RESORT FIRE COMPANY GETS ITS MOU A long time in coming, agreement with volunteers was about command structure ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) After a considerable period of limbo, the Town of Ocean City has renewed its memorandum

of understanding with the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company, ensuring that the volunteer division of the multi-pronged Ocean City Fire Department will remain steadfast in the ongoing ten-

sion over the organization’s hierarchy. OCVFC President Cliff Christello signed the agreement at this week’s City Council session along with Mayor Rick Meehan, who praised “the intangible and immense benefit that all such charitable and volunteer associations contribute.”

“It’s refreshing to have something like this that we can continue to do,” Christello said. “It reinforces to us that the mayor and council will continue to work with us, and want us to be here.” The substantive change to the MOU, city officials said, is that it removes OCFD Chief

(March 15, 2013) Worcester County will reveal its champion teacher for 2013 next Friday during the annual Teacher of the Year Banquet, held at the Clarion in Ocean City as part of the larger state-level contest to determine who will be Maryland’s educational ambassador for the year. “It’s a great way to celebrate the teaching profession and exceptional teachers,” said county schools’ Director of Special Programs Barb Witherow. “Oftentimes our teachers are unsung heroes.” Every year, the state of Maryland charges each of its 24 school districts — 23 counties, plus Baltimore City — with selecting a top teacher to serve as a candidate alongside teachers from other districts in the contest for Maryland Teacher of the Year. Although the state does not dictate exactly how the districts are to select their candidate, Worcester’s process mirrors a similar rubric to what its winning teacher will face at the state level. At each of the county’s 14 public schools, according to Witherow, a selection committee of administrators is formed to receive nominations for that school’s best teacher. Nominations can be made by students, parents and fellow teachers. Following a review, the administrative panel selects one nominee to represent the school at the county level. At the point, the process becomes much more intensive, Witherow said. “Ours mirrors almost exactly what the state requires; however, it is a little more stringent,” she noted. The 14 finalists must submit an extensive portfolio of their work experience, which will also be used if they advance to the state level. But beyond that, each of Worcester’s candidates is interviewed by a six-person panel, consisting of four education specialists from local universities, as well as one retired veteran teacher Continued on Page 8A

City to bargain with Old Bay over tram wrap advertising scheme Seafood seasoning giant planning to increase ad campaign in resort area ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) How much does it cost to turn a tram into a billboard for Old Bay seafood seasoning? Apparently, more than the city is being offered. Despite having a relatively short time before the summer season hits, the City Council moved this week to try to negotiate a higher price for the tram truck advertising proposal brought before the city by Direct Media, the contractor who sells advertising space on transportation equipment on the city’s behalf. According to Public Works Director Hal Adkins, Direct Media received an unsolicited offer from McCormick & Company, owners of the Old Bay brand, asking if the agency would be interested in selling full-body advertising wraps on the city’s Boardwalk tram trucks. Currently, the trucks that pull the tram cars feature no advertising. The roofs of the towed passenger cars do have ads, to be viewed by ocean-side

PHOTO COURTESY DIRECT MEDIA, LLC.

The Town of Ocean City is entertaining an unsolicited proposal from the owners of Old Bay seasoning to expand the city’s transportation advertising to include full tram wraps.

hotel patrons. The city’s fleet of buses features full-body advertising graphics. The city’s contract with Direct Media could be amended to allow such advertising, Adkins said, but he wished to approach the council to gauge “any concern about ‘branding’ the tram.” Council Secretary Mary Knight said she had been informed that Old Bay was looking to make advertising purchases in a number of resort venues.

“This is part of an overall advertising plan for Old Bay in our area that will bring even more ‘talk’ [to the resort],” she said. “It is a revenue source … Old Bay is very significant in this area. It’s an extremely well-known brand.” “I’m all for the extra revenue,” countered Councilman Brent Ashley, “but our brand is Ocean City, and this just doesn’t look right to me.”

Old Bay’s offer to Direct Media was $24,000 for the 110 calendar days that the tram operates. Under the contract it has with Direct Media, the city receives a 60 percent profit share of the proceeds, which would be $14,400. “I just don’t feel [the money] is appropriate for the amount of exposure they would be getting,” said Councilman Doug Cymek. “I’m not sure that Direct Media shouldn’t have come to us first to discuss what the value of that would be before they moved in that direction [to establish a price],” agreed Mayor Rick Meehan. For comparison, it was noted that the city receives $5,000 annually, plus in-kind benefits, from the Esskay company to advertise its lunchmeats on the clocks at the Boardwalk bathrooms. “You could fit the entire [Esskay] sign into the ‘B’ in Old Bay on those,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. Mitrecic also brought up the point that the city uses the trams to take visitors around Northside Park during the Winterfest of Lights. If Old Bay were not compensating Direct Media and the city for the winter use, the trams would have to be de-wrapped. “It’s very hard on the surface of the bus … and may incur a lot of finish damage when we go to pull it off,” Mitrecic said.

(March 15, 2013) With 2013 being used as the “test” year to determine one’s obligations once the 2014 implementation of the Affordable Care Act – popularly known as “Obamacare” – rolls around, the Town of Ocean City will likely be doing some major re-shuffling of staff this coming season to avoid adding some employees to its health care plan. “We are really having to get very creative as to how to estimate additional staff this summer, and what it may come down to is having twice as many part-time personnel as we used to,” said Ocean City Fire Department Chief Chris Larmore, whose department will likely be one of the most heavily affected. “There is an immense amount of time currently going into figuring that out.” The key tenet of the federal legislation creates a “pay or play” system that encourages employers to provide affordable health plans to their employees. Specifically, a $2,000 per employee, per year penalty will be imposed on all large businesses that do not provide their full-time employees with appropriate health coverage, beginning Jan. 1, 2014. In order to qualify as being adequate, an employee’s coverage must not cost more than 9.5 percent of their wages, but cover at least 60 percent of projected av-

erage health care costs. “Large businesses” are classified as those who have more than 50 full-time employees, or the equivalent in part-time workers’ hours, which the Town of Ocean City obviously has. But what will matter for the resort is the element of the federal statute that requires to whom exactly such a “large employer” must provide insurance. Under the ACA, any employee “reasonably expected” to work 30 or more hours per week must be provided necessary coverage if their employer is of adequate size. This coverage must be provided within 90 days of employment, meaning that all those who work for more than three months qualify. Under the current interpretation of the law, issued by the IRS, any employee who works more than 1,560 hours in 2013 (30 hours per week, multiplied by 52 weeks per year) will qualify for coverage beginning in 2014. According to City Manager David Recor’s budget presentation earlier this month, 47 city employees who are currently not considered full-time are expected to meet the ACA threshold to receive health benefits. In order to avoid paying the penalty for these employees – or change its health plan to accommodate their costs and incomes – the city will have to keep their hours under the threshold this year.

State plans to ramp up traffic safety campaign ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) If the State Highway Administration’s public safety campaign goes according to plan, Ocean City may soon have a new graphic meme – a stick man, in the customary “walking” pose associated with traffic signs, holding a surfboard. But for all practical purposes, he should probably be carrying a beer. The SHA sought the city’s approval this week for a publicity campaign that will feature a new “walk smart – use crosswalks” logo design, to be placed on bumper stickers, garbage cans, and Tshirts, which city staff will wear for “Casual Friday.” “Public Works people that are outside all the time would be the most visible,” said Karen Waggoner of the SHA’s Office of Traffic and Safety during this week’s City Council session. “Fridays are the best day to have [this message] out there, because that’s when people are coming into town. Most of our pedestrian crashes happen on the weekend, because it’s a whole new group of people.” For the past several months, Waggoner and other state highway and traffic officials have been working with the city’s Pedestrian Safety Committee, re-formed last year over concern about the high number of pedestrian crashes the resort had seen

over the 2012 summer. There were 34 in that season, as compared to 12 over the same span of weeks in 2011, according to the OCPD. Two of these were fatal, while no fatal accidents occurred in 2011. Waggoner praised the responsiveness of the committee, made up of city officials and business owners, while working with the state. “I have to say that it is by far the best committee I’ve ever worked with,” she said. The SHA is already planning a number of engineering and enforcement initiatives, some of which – such as changing traffic light and pedestrian signal timing at several busy intersections – will be implemented for this season. Further improvements, such as the installation of a crossing signal at 54th Street, are planned for next year. The state is also conducting a study of vehicle speed on Coastal Highway to judge the possibility of lowering the speed limit. On the education front, Waggoner said the state has “a lot more things” planned than just the T-shirts. Ad space will be bought on banner planes and the backs of city buses for safety messages. The SHA will also be producing bumper stickers with a logo similar to the T-shirt design, and asked that the city allow the stickers to be placed on public trash receptacles. Public Works Director Hal Adkins cautioned, however, that “stickers are akin to graffiti.”

“The existence of those stickers promotes more stickers,” Adkins said. “I ‘d ask that you limit that exposure to the trash barrels on the beach.” As has often been noted, however, spreading the word about how to safely cross Coastal Highway is one thing – actually getting people to do it late at night, and when they’re less than sober, is another. As Councilman Brent Ashley noted, 60 percent of pedestrian accidents in the resort involved alcohol, and drunk driving arrests by the Ocean City Police Department spiked 66.7 percent last year. “Perhaps the slogan should be ‘walk smart, live smart – don’t drink,’” Ashley suggested. “The bars are a huge focus for us, because a lot of the crashes occur at closing time,” Waggoner said. “We are keenly See STATE on Page 23A

OCFD maintains service, but looks forward to increased staff ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) The Ocean City Fire Department’s final report for the 2012 calendar year has shown that, despite continuing scheduling and staffing difficulties, the department has been able to maintain and adapt its services. OCFD Chief Chris Larmore informed the City Council this week that the department fielded nearly 6,000 calls over the year, with an average response time of four minutes and 33 seconds, “far exceeding the national average and expectation.”

Despite the town’s massive population fluctuation, Larmore said that there has historically been “very little variation over the 12 months in a year” in call volume, although the volume “does migrate from south to north during the season,” with more emergencies on the south end of the resort in the early months of summer, and more on the north end in the latter part of the high season. Regardless, the department’s response time – from when a call comes in until emergency personnel arrive on the scene – has always hovered around four and a half minutes for the past several years.

Further, the OCFD does not “stack” calls, Larmore said, meaning that calls don’t go unanswered until a crew finishes another call. This is extremely difficult, Larmore said, given the need to balance having enough crews on-duty versus having too many crews who are being paid when not needed. Although the city’s volunteer company is “holding their own,” Larmore said he relies heavily on career firefighters to fill vacant shifts. Many of these paid personnel are primarily employed by other jurisdictions, making scheduling a challenge, especially

Fire, transportation have most affected employees Continued from Page 4A

Larmore said 14 of those employees are in the OCFD, which is in a unique position because “two thirds of the personnel who work part-time for us have full-time jobs somewhere else, where they can’t work around our schedule.” Firefighters and medical personnel who are primarily employed by other municipalities, such as in Salisbury or even the Baltimore metro area, frequently pick up shifts in Ocean City. Given that shifts are 12 or 24 hours, those who work more than one or two rotations in the resort per week would qualify for its insurance.

Whether the city would be penalized for not providing insurance to those who likely have it from another employer is unknown, but “what we have been instructed as department heads is that we may be responsible to make sure that simply doesn’t happen,” Larmore said. “Right now, I believe that we’re going to have to restrict their hours so that they won’t exceed that maximum amount of 1,560 [hours]. What we’re going to have to do is hire a significant number of people to make up the hours that those people were working. What that number is going to be, or how we’re going to find

those people … is going to be a real challenge.” Similar measures will likely have to be taken in other departments where the city uses per-hour or per-shift workers who consistently work longer schedules but do not receive benefits. As with the fire department, Public Works Director Hal Adkins said that the transportation division of his department is likely to be re-arranged, given that most of the city’s bus drivers are paid per-shift and have other driving jobs in the area. Only seven city bus drivers are salaried employees with benefits, Adkins said.

!

(! # $ "

since the OCFD has maintained its policy of requiring personnel to have at least eight hours of rest between shifts. To this end, Larmore said that the department issues “shift reports” every 12 hours to keep track of how many crews are needed and what their workload is, a function that was recently expanded to operations in West Ocean City as well. This is particularly important when it comes to special events in the summer. “Naturally, this year we’ll be planning for those exact locations and special events,” Larmore said. Regardless of good planning, however, the department is struggling with a heavier workload and a lack of personnel – the last new OCFD employees were hired seven years ago, Larmore said. Seven persons have left the department since then, and a staffing study indicated that, assuming those vacancies were filled, the department would need to add a further six employees to ideally handle its call volume. Given that the gap has been closed with part-time and overtime work, it may be cheaper for the city to simply hire additional salaried personnel. The department will be seeking 12 new hires for this budget year, Larmore said. To further ensure good service, Larmore is also planning to expand a program whereby patient reports and responses are analyzed to determine the effectiveness of service.

OCEAN CITY COUNCIL BRIEFS ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) The Ocean City Council discussed the following matters during its March 12, 2013 session:

OCDC expands programs Council heard a report from Ocean City Development Corporation Executive Director Glenn Irwin and OCDC President Bob Givarz on the organization’s ongoing and expanded initiatives to back redevelopment and reinvestment in the resort’s downtown area. OCDC’s signature initiative – the Façade Renovation Program – is still going strong. The program offers to pay one-third of the cost, up to $5,000, for those looking to renovate the exteriors of dilapidated downtown structures. Once spurred to action, Irwin noted, most participants actually put more into their projects than originally planned, resulting in twice the leverage ratio – six to one – of public-to-private dollars. This has resulted in 134 façades completed to date, and more than $4.7 million in investment. “We have more façade projects completed through the Community Legacy Program [the state grant that funds OCDC] than any other city in Maryland, including Baltimore,” Irwin said. The group’s newest initiative – the Business Assistance Program – will offer subsidies for interior renovations to businesses looking to establish themselves in vacant downtown properties, and will be run in a manner similar to the façade program. Several businesses have expressed in-

terest, and one has already applied, Irwin said. OCDC will also be expanding its downtown concerts, both at the bayside Sunset Park, which holds an event every Thursday, starting June 11, as well as on Somerset Plaza, where OCDC hosts car club receptions throughout the summer. “They’ve asked us to have a music event each time they’re there, so we’re actually doubling the amount of music we have,” Irwin said.

Summer camps grow The city’s Parks and Recreation Director, Tom Shuster, informed council this week that he is planning to expand the city’s summer camp offerings to include beach volleyball, drama, and standup paddle-boarding, as well as extending the offerings for surfing, fishing, and visual arts. “With the art camp in particular, we want to note that we’ve grown from a one-week camp at Northside Park to a four-week camp at the Ocean City Center for the Arts,” Shuster said about the newly completed facility. “We’re happy to have a location like that for the camp.”

A 3.07:0/ 37

NEWS 7A

Mayor Rick Meehan said that the camps are key, he believes, to driving consistent visitorship. “I know there are families that plan their summer vacations around these,” he said. Shuster also reported that this year’s 23rd iteration of Springfest is shaping up to be highly popular, based on the number of tickets sold for the event’s three evening concerts. A total of 610 seats are already booked for Beatlemania on Thursday, May 2. Friday’s Justin Moore concert has already sold 1,072, and Saturday’s headliner, Foreigner, has already sold 1,683. “We’ve got less than 100 tickets left to sell, so if you know someone who wants to get into the Foreigner concert, let them know,” Shuster said.

Training reviewed Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald briefed council on the city’s experience at the recent Integrated Emergency Management Course conducted by FEMA at the federal Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Md. “It costs about $100,000 for them to design

the course specifically to us, and to fly experts in from around the nation,” Theobald said. Sixty-seven people attended the course, including city staff as well as those from surrounding jurisdictions and support groups that work with the city in emergencies, typically weather-related. “It’s about solving problems together when the time comes,” Theobald said. As a result of the training and collaborative effort, Theobald said he was planning to complete a revised Emergency Operations Plan before the council prior to the start of the summer season. The plan will include considerably more detail on the city’s reconstruction, Theobald said, in case the resort were ever to sustain extensive damage such as that seen in New York and New Jersey during Hurricane Sandy. “After the fact is not the time to sit there are decide what you want Ocean City to look like after a catastrophe,” Theobald said. Mayor Rick Meehan, who attended the training course, said the realism was remarkable.

WORCESTER COUNTY TEACHER OF THE YEAR Continued from Page 1A and the county’s current Teacher of the Year. The interview and portfolio review process goes through practical classroom methods, and beyond. “All of the candidates are great instruction leaders and teachers,” Witherow noted. “The portfolio has seven sections … including student career readiness, teaching philosophy, and what their platform would be if they were to be Maryland’s state Teacher of the Year. It’s very comprehensive.” The top performer, as judged on a 1,200point composite rubric, will be named during next week’s event. The winner will serve throughout the year as a leader for teaching initiatives in the county, as well as an ambassador and champion of education at the state level. Last year’s winner, Worcester Technical High School social studies teacher Tony Bevilacqua, “is very involved at the state level,” Witherow said. “All of the county Teachers of the Year participate in a number of functions, one recently was that they got to go to the House of Delegates and the state Senate and talk to our representatives about education.” Next Friday’s dinner and award ceremony will also bring back as many former county Teacher of the Year winners as possible, even if they no longer live in the area. The award was first presented in 1988. “We have wonderful sponsors for our banquet,” Witherow noted. “Because of them, we are able to bring our former Teachers of the Year back for the celebration.” The 14 candidates, one representing each school, for the county’s Teacher of the Year are: n Elizabeth Atwood, Cedar Chapel Special School: Atwood graduated with a Bachelor of Science in organizational management from Robert’s Wesleyan College and earned a master’s in special education from Wilmington Uni-

versity. Currently in her sixth year at CCSS, Atwood integrates the Common Core State Standards with a functional living skills curriculum, while incorporating the principles of structured teaching. Atwood seeks to empower all children to be lifelong learners, contributing members of society, and productive citizens. As a mentor teacher for University of Maryland Eastern Shore student teaching interns, an AFG team member, ALT-MSA representative, Equal Measurements Coordinator and president of the Bishopville VFD Auxiliary, Atwood advocates and celebrates diversity in partnerships with family and community. n Mindy Bankert, Stephen Decatur Middle School: Bankert earned two Bachelor of Science degrees in marketing management and physical education and health, as well as a master’s in post-secondary education from Salisbury University. In her 15 years of teaching, Bankert has concentrated on teaching disability awareness, diversity appreciation, and character building through physical activity. Bankert applied her passion to create an after-school club called Equal Measurements, which encourages interaction between special and general education students as they collaborate on projects and train for Special Olympics. Dedicated to the community, Bankert is an advisor for the Builders Club and coordinator of the annual Veteran’s Day tribute. She currently teaches seventh- and eighth-grade physical education. n Tanya Call, Buckingham Elementary School: Call is in her seventh year of teaching kindergarten at BES. Call graduated Cum Laude from Salisbury University with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. She earned a master’s from Wilmington University, with dual certification in early childhood and elementary education and has completed 30 post-graduate credits in reading and special education. Call’s greatest reward is seeing her students’ excitement for learning. Her favorite moment is when a child first says, “I just read! I can do it!” Call is a member of the AFG Technology Team, PTA vice president, a mentor

teacher for interns and an after-school program teacher for kindergarten and first grade. n Tara Cuplin, Snow Hill High School: Cuplin attended Frostburg State University, graduating Summa Cum Laude with departmental honors and a Bachelor of Arts degree in foreign languages and literature. She majored in French, minored in Spanish, and received her secondary education teaching certificate. Cuplin has been teaching French and Spanish for nearly 14 years and is currently pursuing a master’s in education from Wilmington University. Cuplin believes that in order for students to learn, they must feel safe and valued in the classroom. She seeks to inspire her students to expand their horizons beyond their own culture and learn about the world around them, both through learning a foreign language and studying different countries. n Gina Dean, Pocomoke Elementary School: Dean is a physical education teacher of 13 years, currently at PES, teaching kindergarten through third grade. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in physical education, Bachelor of Science in elementary education and master’s in post-secondary education from Salisbury University. Dean strives to create a positive learning environment where students develop both physical and mental skills, achieving success through individual and team interaction. Utilizing crosscurricular connections by integrating lessons with Common Core subject standards, she believes that by promoting effective physical activities in schools, students will develop the necessary knowledge to make informed, healthy lifestyle choices which can aid in preventing or reducing costly health care in the future. n Karen Eure, Snow Hill Elementary School: Eure graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish language and literature and a minor in early childhood education from Mary Washington College. She earned a Master of Education, with a concentration in reading, from Salisbury University. Eure began teaching at SHES in 1987, enjoying the ever-changing world of Kindergarten

for 25 years. She believes that every child has potential to grow. Will her students learn a love of reading and a flair for the drama of good literature? Will they realize that numbers are fun to manipulate? Will singing, dancing, and painting inspire them? Eure believes it is her mission to foster their interest in answering these questions. n Jennifer Fohner, Ocean City Elementary School: Fohner graduated from Bowie State University with a Bachelor of Science in early childhood/special education and a Master of Science in reading and literacy from Walden University. She has been teaching for 14 years and is currently teaching pre-kindergarten at OCES. Fohner believes that all students can learn when they are in a safe, nurturing, and respectful environment. She also believes that students respond when they are engaged in lessons that involve handson activities and are meaningful. She is a member of the Math Team for Accreditation for Growth and teaches the after-school homework academy for fourth grade students. n Monica Forrester, Pocomoke Middle School: Forrester is in her seventh year of teaching at PMS, where she teaches art and gifted and talented, and serves as the school’s Arts Immersion Specialist. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Salisbury University and a Master of Arts in teaching from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. She believes that encouragement and praise for a job well done builds self-esteem in her students and creates a desire to achieve more. Forrester is an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and serves on the Maryland Fine Arts Education Advisory Panel. In 2012, Forrester was recognized as an Outstanding Maryland Art Teacher. n Arlene Hager, Showell Elementary School: Hager began her career in education as an advocate, supporting early education and quality childcare in Worcester County. Currently, she is in her seventh year of teaching kindergarten at SES. Hager’s philosophy is based on providing hands-on, encouraging, and literature-

Chris Larmore as a specific party to the agreement, and instead places him in the same structure, under the city manager, as all other city department heads. “That [old agreement] was a three-party MOU between OCFD Chief myself, the volunteers, and the Chris Larmore city,” Larmore said this week. “This new MOU is now a two-party agreement between the volunteers and the town.” That legal language dates back to the 2007 row between the city and the volunteer company that led to the current setup of the OCFD. At that time, allegations arose that the city was planning to place an emergency services director over both the OCVFC and an expanded paid fire corps, and whose operational directives would supersede those of the volunteer company. Larmore, then the OCVFC chief, said the plan was “an unacceptable public safety practice” and “an unsound and dual com-

mand structure where truth is alien and duplicity rules.” The OCVFC then stated that it would relinquish fire service on the island and move its primary operations to West Ocean City due to its inability to “function under this umbrella of distrust and deceit.” A compromise was reached under which Larmore would become the interim head of a fully combined fire department, for a starting salary of $1 per year, in which both volunteer and paid firefighters and EMS personnel serve under the same administrative structure. But because Larmore has since become the permanent, fully compensated chief of the department, the city suggested this past fall that the agreement was moot, and needed to be revised in order to reflect the fact that Larmore was no longer serving as an interim chief on behalf of the volunteers. Even under the new MOU, however, the OCVFC still maintains its right to appeal directly to the city’s elected body. “The Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company reserves its longstanding right to communicate directly to the mayor and council

on all standing matters,” Meehan said. “That did not change and it will not change.” Since the topic of revising the MOU was first broached some months ago, multiple members of the city’s administration have noted that the volunteer company was reluctant towards any change in Larmore’s powers, likely due to the ongoing tension between Larmore’s administration and the city’s paid, unionized fire division which Larmore now manages. As previously reported in Ocean City Today, conflicts over scheduling and promotions have become increasingly heated between Larmore’s command and the city’s chapter of the International Association of Fire Fighters. “The terminology is exactly the same [in the new MOU], in that I have full operational and administrative authority over all three divisions [the volunteer company, the career division, and the Office of the Fire Marshal],” Larmore said. The city has completed negotiations on a new collective bargaining contract with the IAFF, but the document has yet to be ratified by the union, city officials said this week.

Exhibitors warned about phony fair guide NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) Past exhibitors in the Ocean City Hotel-MotelRestaurant Association’s Spring Trade Expo are being warned about a “fair guide” purporting to be affiliated with the organization. A letter sent to exhibitors this week from Susan Jones and Amy Tingle of the HMRA says the “Fair Guide/Show Fair Guide” is a fraud and is “In No Way associated with our show.” Exhibitors are told not to fill out paperwork because the “Fair Guide” is actually soliciting them for thousands of dollars. The Fair Guide letter tells ex-

hibitors that the update for their “pre-registered listing in our exhibitors directory is essential to guarantee problem-free communication to all visitors seeking contact with your company and to assure that only accurate data is published.” It goes on to tell exhibitors that an order form is attached if they want to place an order for a payable insertion in the guide. Those who ordered a payable insertion were billed about $1,700, Jones said. This is not the first year the Fair Guide has targeted exhibitors of the Ocean City show. Jones said this was probably the third

year for the solicitations. Last fall, she e-mailed the Fair Guide’s Web site, asking for the OCHMRA and its expo to be removed from the site’s query search. “I do not want any affiliation with your brand, as it is misleading and deceptive to my clients. Thank you for your prompt attention in this matter,” Jones wrote. She received a read receipt, but no response, on Oct. 22. The Fair Guide’s Web site, www.fairguide.com, describes itself as “the largest fairs and exhibitors directory on the Internet,” and instructs exhibitors to use it “to find companies, fairs and exhibitions all over the world.”

(March 15, 2013) The Joshua M. Freeman Foundation on Thursday announced the summer concert schedule for The Freeman Stage at Bayside, an outdoor performing arts venue located off Route 54 in the Bayside community, which is celebrating its sixth season of bringing arts and entertainment to the Mid-Atlantic region. The Freeman Stage has attracted more than 120,000 audience members since 2008, with a diverse offering of dance, theatre, live music and children’s performances. The 2013 season will include more than 50 performances between Memorial Day and Labor Day, including five special concert events: Lyle Lovett and his acoustic group on July 10; nine-time Grammy award winner Sheryl Crow on July 14; country superstar Darius Rucker on Aug. 8; five-time Grammy award winner Michael McDonald on Aug. 10; and Pat Benatar with Neil Giraldo on Aug. 13. Tickets for all paid performances will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on April 1. “We have just released our 2013 schedule of events and we couldn’t be more excited about the diversified programs and special concert events that our sixth season will offer to our community,” said Patti Grimes, executive director of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation. “So many gifted and talented artists are scheduled to grace our beautiful stage.

Adding the special concert events to our lineup over the last few seasons has been a huge success, and we hope that the performances in 2013 will continue to attract new patrons, while also bringing awareness of the importance of arts in our community.” Among the performances scheduled this season are such crowd favorites as the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, Clear Space Theatre Group, Jesse Garron’s tribute to Elvis, First State Ballet, and the Morgan State University Choir. Also returning in 2013 are the Arts & Jazz Festival, Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, local artist John Donato and Tommy Edward as Sir Rod. Performers new to the outdoor stage this summer include Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience, the Official Blues Brothers Revue, Classic Albums Live, Hits of the Great White Way with Franc D’Ambrosio, Cherish the Ladies, the Doo Wop Project, Bruce in the USA, among others. New to The Freeman Stage this year will be two nights called “Locals Under the Lights,” where local artists will have their moment in the spotlight to perform right on the Freeman Stage. For a complete listing of all the season’s events, or to find out how to volunteer at The Freeman Stage, call 302-436-3015 or visit www.freemanstage.org.

Ocean Pines heroin dealer pleads guilty NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) A heroin trafficker from Ocean Pines faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty last week in Circuit Court in Snow Hill to having a large amount of the drug. Not only did Leck M. Lyons, 38, have a large amount of heroin, it was the largest seizure of heroin in recent history Leck Lyons in Worcester County. Lyons had been under investigation by the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team after its members learned he was selling heroin. The investigation was one of several involving suspected heroin distribution in the northern end of the county. After gathering information about his trafficking, they obtained a search and

seizure warrant. On Oct. 19, 2012, investigators saw Lyons driving on Route 113 at Bishopville Road and stopped him. Police searched the vehicle and found 1,678 individually wrapped bags of heroin, with an approximate street value of $41,950. They also found $2,020. Following that search, police executed the search and seizure warrant at Lyons’ residence on Windjammer Road in Ocean Pines, where they found and seized seven bags of heroin. Lyons was charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of a large amount of heroin and importation of heroin. Lyons, who pleaded guilty March 5, will be sentenced by Judge Richard Bloxom at a later date.

Karma catches up to alleged thief NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) The watchful eyes of Sen. Jim Mathias helped catch an alleged burglar early Sunday morning. “It’s just fortunate that I happened to be there,” Mathias said Monday. While making the customary rounds of his Teal Drive neighborhood after arriving home, Mathias saw something amiss. “I saw this guy who looked suspicious, on the west side by the bay,” Mathias said Monday. “I kept an eye on him and saw him go up in yards.” Mathias watched as the man walked to other areas and to other yards. “I thought something wasn’t right,” Mathias said. Mathias then drove away, but returned

and turned off his vehicle’s lights. “He was on the other side looking around,” said Mathias, who then called police. When police asked the man, identified as Matthew Bullen, 21, of Ocean City, for his wallet, Bullen removed it and the officer saw a silver and black bracelet fall onto the sidewalk. Checking for warrants, the officer found an active warrant out of Anne Arundel County and arrested Bullen. After the arrest, the officer searched Bullen and found a leather Kindle case with a Kindle reader and charging cord in his jeans pocket. He also found one $50 bill, two $20 bills, two $10 bills, one $5 bill and 10 $1 bills. Police also found two more vehicles See MATHIAS on Page 26A

Rural counties ally to increase clout in capitol SHEILA R. CHERRY â&#x2013; Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (March 15, 2013) No longer content to make do with new laws passed by the General Assemblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larger urban and suburban jurisdictions, Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural counties have begun forming a political alliance to leverage their collective numbers in an attempt to present a greater specifically rural voice in the decision-making process in Annapolis, according to organizers. Maryland Rural Counties Coalition President Michael McKay told members of the Eastern Shore Delegation on March 8 that the coalition had grown to include Allegany, Caroline, Carroll, Cecil, Dorchester, Frederick, Kent, Somerset, Washington and Wicomico counties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; representing 939,980 rural Maryland residents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; since its inception in December 2011. Turns out, the delegation meeting had competition, which diminished the usual turnout. It occurred the same morning as the state prayer breakfast, which this year hosted Johns Hopkins Hospital pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson. Nevertheless, McKay said he felt comfortable that five of his coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representatives attended. He said he was told by the state representatives that the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work was both ap-

preciated and needed. The four original member jurisdictions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Allegany, Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; each contributed $5,000 to create an operating budget of $20,000 to use during the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 legislative session. Most of the funding was spent to retain Annapolis consultants to advocate on behalf of rural issues in tandem with the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new partner, the Maryland Association of Counties. The idea is to complement, not compete with, MACo, McKay said. During the 2013 session, the coalition retained Maryland lobbyist Bruce Bereano to help the coalition navigate through the legislative maze in Annapolis. Bereano was convicted of mail fraud in 1994. Asked about that, McKay said coalition members were well aware of Bereanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spotted past, but still responded by overwhelmingly choosing him to represent them because of his political weight and effectiveness in Annapolis politics. Worcester County Commissioners President Bud Church said March 8 that the county had been approached when the coalition was initially forming. But at that time it was only a small number of counties and they were asking for a large amount of money as an initiation fee. The membership issue â&#x20AC;&#x153;will proba-

bly be brought before us again,â&#x20AC;? Church said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might reconsider, now that the group is a member of MACo,â&#x20AC;? he said. The coalition listed several bills it is tracking during the current session of the assembly. However, seven specific proposals, labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Legislation of Interestâ&#x20AC;? were highlighted as measures for which the group has taken positions. Four of the bills the coalition is supporting are: â&#x2013; HB 409/SB 443 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would generally increase the time period of a local governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comprehensive planning and zoning cycle from six to 10 years, to coincide with the release of federal census data, and would allow local jurisdictions to have access to that data at the beginning of their comprehensive plan review processes; â&#x2013;  HB 694 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would exempt a county or municipal corporation from permit requirements under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System for Stormwater Discharges from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems, if the local jurisdiction maintains adequate program funding to support stormwater management infrastructure and programs approved by the Maryland Department of the Environment; â&#x2013;  House Bill 796/SB 427 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which See MEMBERS on Page 17A

MD Senate weighs increase to murder accessory charges NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) Delegate Mike McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to increase the penalty for being an accessory after a murder was passed by the House of Delegates last Thursday. Although the bill was watered down, it would increase the maximum penalty, which is currently five years. McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original bill would have increased the penalty for being convicted of being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder to up to 20 years. A conviction for being an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder would have increased the penalty to 10 years. An amendment to McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill increased the maximum penalty for both offenses to 10 years. Lynn Dodenhoff, the mother of murder victim Christine Sheddy, testified in favor of McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill during its Feb. 19 hearing held by the Judiciary Committee. She testified again Tuesday in favor of the companion bill of Sen. Norman Stone Jr. during the hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Proceedings Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went very, very well,â&#x20AC;? Dodenhoff said Wednesday of her testimony. Dodenhoff was in Circuit Court in Snow Hill in October when Tia Johnson was sentenced to the maximum five years in prison for being an accessory after the 2007 murder of her daughter. She thought the sentence was too light. Not only had Johnson driven her car, with her children inside and Sheddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body in the trunk, from Pocomoke to Snow Hill, she remained mum about the crime. Sheddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body lay undiscovered in a shallow grave behind a bed and breakfast for two years, three months and seven days. One of the murderers is serving a prison sentence of life without parole. The other is serving a life sentence, with all but 30 years suspended. Johnson is serving five years. When asked if she was disappointed that one of the penalties in McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill had been lowered from 20 years to 10 years, Dodenhoff said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking baby steps here. Five more years is five more years.â&#x20AC;? Robin Bennett, mother of murder victim, Whitney Bennett, who was murdered in Wicomico County in 2010, also testified for stronger penalties. The man convicted of being an accessory after the fact to her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder was sentenced last summer to five years in prison and is already up for parole. Because of those two murders, the bill was renamed last week as The Sheddy-Bennett Act.

Members important as money to counterbalance ‘Big Seven’ Continued from Page 14A

would create a state income tax credit for farmland owners who experience diminished value of their real property as a result of either the Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act, or state nutrient management plan regulations; and n HB 1257 – which would provide various clarifications and corrections to state law relating to zoning, planning, subdivision and other land use. The three legislative proposals the coalition is actively opposing this year are: n HB 294/SB 281 – which would significantly modify and expand the regulation of firearms and ammunition and would restrict individuals with certain mental health issues from possessing firearms; n HB 735/SB 698 – which would generally require employers to allow employees to earn at least one hour of paid sick and safe leave for every 30 hours they work; and n HB 1266/SB 799 – which would require the MDE to establish minimum recycling rates, maximum solid waste landfill disposal rates, and compliance fees that would be imposed on counties that fail to achieve the specified rates.

McKay said the annual membership fee for counties is still $5,000, but “This year we are actually allowing counties to contribute what they think membership is worth or what they can afford.” He added that some counties had provided resources such as in-kind seervices, in addition to or in lieu of part of their membership fees. For example, he noted, Allegany County was providing its chief financial officer to serve as the coalition’s treasurer; Frederick County’s Ethics Compliance Administrator and Legislative Coordinator, Ragen Cherney, was serving as secretary; and Ernie Crawfoot, who was transitioning from serving as Caroline County’s attorney to Kent County’s, was providing legal advice. McKay said the financial accommodations were meant to help small or economically struggling counties join the coalition, and at this time representational numbers can be as important as money. “There is a lot of power that comes with the unified voices of county commissioners,” McKay said. Referencing “The Big Seven,” the nickname for the state’s most populated jurisdictions, McKay said his goal was to make the rural coalition “The Lean Mean 17.”

MIEMSS report fails to resolve town-fire co. conflict in Berlin Easter Brunch Extravaganza

Letter states underlying tensions may affect patient care, must be addressed SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (March 15, 2013) Four days after the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems issued a report determining that on-scene medical care rendered during a fatal car crash that occurred late last year met the appropriate standard of care, the paramedic involved in treating and transporting the victim was fired by the Berlin Fire Company. In a March 7 letter to Berlin Mayor Gee Williams, MIEMSS officials wrote, “[W]e have determined that the pre-hospital emergency medical services care rendered to the victims of the motor vehicle crash met the standard of care for the delivery of such services; appropriate care was rendered to the patients; and there was no delay in transport.” However, the letter, which was signed by State Emergency Medical Services Medical Director Richard Alcorta, also stated “that the significant, underlying tensions surrounding the delivery of

emergency medical services in Berlin have the potential to impact patient care and must be addressed.” After a review of the Dec. 26 incident that included 48 interviews with 26 individuals and a review of medical records, Alcorta told Williams, “The Town of Berlin, the Berlin Fire Department (sic) and the Worcester County EMS operational program and its Medical Director will need to engage meaningful efforts to resolve this situation as soon as possible.” At the center of the controversy was an emergency medical technician who filed a workplace harassment complaint with the town in February 2012. The EMT drove one of three ambulances that responded to the scene and allegedly requested assistance in transporting one of the victims, who was later pronounced dead at the hospital, with the help of a police officer when other responders at the scene allegedly failed to respond. On Tuesday, the morning after Berlin officials received the response from MIEMSS’s review, the EMT was fired by the BFC. A livid Williams responded to the MIEMSS understatement that the situation needed resolution with a press statement of his own.

Judge dismisses Donohoe appeal in termination suit disputing its claim that the harassment had not ceased. In a March 12 statement on behalf of the town, Mayor Gee Williams noted the lawsuit was originally dismissed by Judge Mitchell on Oct. 15, 2012. “The court has once again disagreed and we are pleased the judge has dismissed the action and found the claims against the town did not have merit,” Williams said. The court concluded the Town of Berlin is protected from governmental immunity and ruled there was no breach of contract, he said. “We look forward to a time when we can resolve this dispute,” Williams said, “but it is our understanding that the legal ramifications of the allegations of workplace harassment at the Berlin firehouse have only just begun.” According to the statement, the mayor and council had also asked for a full accounting of the Berlin Fire Company’s financial status in early January, but have not yet received any information in response to the request. “In the meantime, we will simply allow the judicial process to follow its due course,” Williams said.

Former EMS supervisor asserts Berlin wrongfully terminated his position SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (March 15, 2013) The Circuit Court for Worcester County on March 5 granted the Town of Berlin’s motion to dismiss an appeal claim for a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by a former supervisor of the Berlin Fire Company, who was dismissed as acting Emergency Medical Services supervisor in May 2012. Circuit Court Judge David Mitchell “dismissed without leave,” which completely dismisses the case, an appeal by Norris Phillip Donohoe Jr. Donohoe’s attorney confirmed the court’s ruling on Tuesday, adding that attempts to appeal the case are not over. Donohoe was acting EMS supervisor for the fire company when the town received multiple complaints of workplace harassment. Donohoe responded to his dismissal with a $200,000 lawsuit, asserting that Berlin wrongfully terminated his position as retaliation for his

Govt. double standard on resort advertising Acknowledging our own conflict of interest as a business that exists on advertising sales revenue, is the Town of Ocean City really contemplating selling ad space on its Boardwalk tram? It isn’t as if McCormick & Company, which is offering to buy tram space from the city, has been or is going to be purchasing major space in local newspapers, but it’s the principle of the thing. In the strictest sense of government versus private business interests in this limited market, there is no difference between government selling advertising and government selling all-you-can-eat crabs. But even that isn’t the point. The issue here is local government’s double standard. It is perfectly acceptable, from city officials’ point of view, to sell space on virtually any flat surface it controls, anywhere, any time. Clearly, that’s because government gets the money. It is not acceptable in local government’s view, however, for a business to post a sign that’s not on its own property, because that would add to the visual clutter, nor can taxi operators sell unlimited advertising space on their cabs because, well, it just wouldn’t look good. Hello? It’s understandable that city government wants and needs every penny it can get these days because of lower property tax revenues, forthcoming raises and higher operating expenses, but the least it could do is be equitable about it and have a one-size-fits-all advertising policy. If government can sell space and post advertising wherever it wants on anything it wants, others should be able to do the same. And if it looks good on a bus or looks good on a tram, it won’t look any better or worse on a cab.

READERS’ FORUM

Federal employees protect president Editor, Now that we have survived the first week of “Frankenquester,” those who pay attention know that the president and his abettors, including the cabinet secretaries, have been grossly exaggerating, if not outright lying about, the effects of the president’s sequester tactic. Keep in mind that we are not talking actual cuts here, but decreases in future spending increases. Included in the liars are the secretary of education claiming teachers were already receiving pink slips; secretary of transportation warning layoffs of air traffic controllers; the president’s claim that Capitol janitorial staff would be laid off; and worst, secretary of Homeland Security actually authorizing the release from detention of thousands of illegal immigrants. To add insult to injury, the president cancelled White House tours. Whose house is it, Mr. President? That said, the citizens of the First Congressional District of Maryland are blessed to have Dr. Andy Harris as our congressman. In a hearing on Capitol Hill last week, Harris questioned the director of the Centers for Disease Control regarding its memo

that claimed “Republican” sequester cuts would deny vaccinations to children, including 2,000 Maryland children. Can you believe that the director did not know who in his department was responsible for the memo? Harris pointed out that the president’s proposed 2013 budget called for a cut of $58 million to the subject vaccination program, double the sequester decrease. The director claimed that the CDC could have maintained the level of vaccinations with a $58 million cut, but would somehow not be able to do so with a cut of half that size. Apparently, these high-level federal employees must believe they swore an oath to protect and defend the president, rather than the Constitution of the United States of America. Gwen L.

D.J. Shirk at Seacrets was a joy to work with. He gave us the benefit of his experience, but allowed us a lot of freedom to do what we wanted to do to put on our show. Rico and his crew were very helpful to us unloading and setting up and even figuring out last-minute fixes for our sets. The wait staff and bartenders were friendly and efficient. Thanks, too, to Bulldog who got us on his show to promote the event. The Seacrets organization Continued on Page 21

Thank you to the DelmarvaLife TV show and to all the local press for supporting us and helping us get the word out not only about Finnegan’s Wake, but more importantly about WCDC and the support it provides people who live with an intellectual disability.

By Stewart Dobson I don’t want to be disrespectful, but the television coverage of Vatican affairs in Rome seems to be a little more ramped up than it used to be. I was just getting used to the daily updates on Kate Middleton’s baby bump, which, incidentally, proved two things: one, that a good portion of the American viewing public thinks that 1776 was a big mistake and, two, English royalty does not buy its babies but, amazingly, actually has them like regular people. But that critical news, without which my day would not be complete, was supplanted in recent weeks by up-t0-theminute Pope coverage on a scale that I do not recall seeing in earlier times. CNN, bless its news-starved heart, even offered a virtual Sistine Chapel, wherein a reporter demonstrated how – and get this – the cardinals fold their paper ballots. It was, you might say, a “Wow” moment, in that after years of the ballotfolding process being shrouded in mystery and secrecy, it turns out they fold them not once, but twice into quarters — JUST LIKE WE WOULD. Amazing. So now, when I sit down to dinner and I fold my paper napkin not in half, but into quarters, I will feel qualified to comment on the smoke coming out of the oven. “Ah, white smoke. A roast!” Alternatively, “Ah, black smoke, we’re going out for dinner.” Again, I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but the coverage commotion went so far beyond its usual muted and reverent tone and into the realm of celebrity fascination that I wondered if somewhere along the line someone truly special might show up on “Dancing with the Stars.” “And here’s our hot to foxtrot pro dancer Sheena with her partner for this season … oooooooh.” Even though I’m not Catholic, which would be evident in my having failed high school Latin not once, but twice (which may be related to the ballot-folding phenomenon) I’ve always had an interest in who the Pope would be and what he had to say once he was elevated to that position. After all, regardless of your religion or lack of one, when someone is the spiritual leader of 1.2 billion people, it would be in your best interest to pay attention. You would not, for instance, want to turn on the television one day and hear, “That Dobson boy, he’s no good. Let’s go get him.”

Berlin Fire Company has yet to receive its letter from MIEMSS Continued from Page 18A

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Berlin Fire Company maintains they are not answerable to anyone, and so far in this sorry episode, apparently they are correct in assuming this is true,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe I have the upbringing and experience to know right from wrong, and if there is any accountability for the unacceptable misdeeds of a few members of the Berlin Fire Company, then I must trust that the legal ramifications of this sordid mess have only just begun.â&#x20AC;? According to Williams, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first Berlin Fire Company EMS ambulance crew did their job, the Ocean Pines Fire Company EMS personnel did their job, but the only reason the third ambulance, which ultimately transported the patient who died, left the scene was because a Berlin Police Officer drove the ambulance when over 20 Berlin Fire Company

members either refused or failed to provide this very basic and simple task.â&#x20AC;? Williams accused MIEMSS of passing the buck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The letter from Dr. Alcorta in essence says, yes, there is a problem here, but it is up to the Town of Berlin to resolve the issue,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone in a position of oversight will eventually realize the Town of Berlin has no legal authority to make changes in the command structure or leadership of the volunteers of the Berlin Fire Company, which is the root of this and other serious problems at the Berlin firehouse.â&#x20AC;? BFC President David Fitzgerald said Tuesday he had not seen the MIEMSS report, but had been contacted by press seeking comment on it and the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the highest regard for MIEMSS and their ability to investigate

EMS incidences in Maryland,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hold MIEMSS to a very high standard, as they hold the EMS providers to a high standard.â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald said the BFC had initiated its own investigation and request for a MIEMSS review prior to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request. The fire company is still waiting for their response from MIEMSS, he said. BFC officials were very pleased that the patient care rendered at the scene of the accident was found to be timely, Fitzgerald said. Both the Town of Berlin and the Berlin Fire Company had asked MIEMSS to review why Berlin Police Lt. Robert Fisher had to drive one of the three ambulances that responded to the call of a fatal accident on routes 818 and 50 that occurred Dec. 26, when other emergency and firefighting personnel were on the scene.

L.L.P., said he has filed an appeal with the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, on the basis that the Circuit Court did not reach the merits of the case. He said the Circuit Court ruled that the town was entitled to sovereign im-

munity and that the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council members, who were also named in Donohoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit, were entitled to legislative immunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the judge is mistaken,â&#x20AC;? Cockey said of the immunity ruling â&#x20AC;&#x153;to the extent that it still survives in legal

doctrine.â&#x20AC;? He predicted the process could take another six months to a year to run its course. He said the unfortunate human side of the case was that after 23 years â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Donohoe is now out of a job for reasons for which there is no accountability.â&#x20AC;?

Mumpower, 26, who was a passenger in a Toyota driven by Amberle Booker, 25, as the two were heading north on Route 818, the stretch of road that leads out of downtown Berlin and to Route 50. Although both parties calling for the investigation agree that Fisher responded to a request to drive an ambulance to Atlantic General Hospital, they disagree on what transpired at the scene and the events leading to Fisher being pressed into service. Fire company officials, however, vehemently deny that no assistance was given to the EMT, but did ask MEIMSS Region IV Administrator John Barto in Easton, Md., to find out why Fisher drove the ambulance as two EMTs in the back administered care to the crash victim. Prior to the accident and unable to reach consensus over the validity of the claims, or actions against the personnel involved in the alleged harassment, the town moved to put the kibosh on $560,000 in financial support that was slated to go to the BFC and to demand that $150,000 already spent on payroll be repaid. Last August, the town reallocated $557,000 to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contingency fund of the fiscal year 2013 budget. Last month, during its Feb. 25 meeting, the Town Council voted unanimously to transfer $300,000 from the contingency fund to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new stormwater utility fund.

aware that alcohol is a big part of the pedestrian problem.” The zone that the SHA has studied as an area of particularly high pedestrian risk – the stretch of Coastal Highway between the convention center and the Route 90 bridge – contains much of the resort’s nightlife. It is in this area that the SHA is looking into the installation of a median barrier, such as a fence or vegetation, that would force pedestrians to cross at the appropriate signals. This option is still being studied and is likely several years off. In the meantime, however, Waggoner said the state is planning to print coasters with the safety slogan and distribute them to bars. “The bar owners have agreed to have their staff remind customers as they leave [about traffic safety],” Waggoner said. “We’ll likely have some kind of button or shirt for them as well.”

Hydrant flushing begins March 24 (March 15, 2013) The town of Ocean City’s Public Works Department will begin conducting the spring hydrant flushing of the water system on March 24. The project is expected to be completed by March 29. Residents and businesses are reminded that after flushing there may be a slight discoloration of the water. This is not harmful and will dissipate after a short time. To clear pipes, run cold water for several minutes until the water runs clear. For questions or concerns about the hydrant flushing, contact the Public Works Water Department at 410-524-8388.

“Or would we just have the ‘Winterfest of Lights – sponsored by Old Bay?’” “The contract … does include the value of stripping it if we instructed them to do so,” Adkins noted. However, because of the considerable cost and hassle to the city – and the fact that such a project had not been competitively solicited – it was the consensus among council that the proposal should be further discussed with Direct Media and McCormick. If the company is indeed looking to expand its advertising in the resort, the city may be able to work out a sponsorship deal. “Other things that are outside of Direct Media right now could be part of the package,” said Councilman Dennis Dare.

Murderer sentenced to 30 years again, but with 10 suspended NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (March 15, 2013) A 32-year-old man headed back to prison last week after being re-sentenced for the September 2010 fatal stabbing of another man. First, however, James Edward Ballard listened as the mother of his murder victim spoke of its impact on her. “This is just painful,” Mattie Fletcher said in James Ballard Circuit Court in Snow Hill on March 8. “I live it every day. It’s no different that it was two years ago. Nothing’s going to bring my son back. Every day to me is a painful day.” Ballard had been charged with firstand second-degree murder, manslaugh-

ter and first-degree assault after the investigation into the murder of 18-year-old Russell Matthew Bailey III, who died of a stab wound to his chest near Ninth Street in Pocomoke. He had only recently been released from jail before his arrest on the murder charges. On April 13, 2011, a jury found Ballard guilty of second-degree murder and Judge Thomas C. Groton sentenced him to 30 years in prison. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals overturned Ballard’s conviction in June 2012 because Burton Anderson, Ballard’s public defender, wanted the judge to instruct the jury about a specific self-defense, but he did not. The court ordered him returned from prison to Worcester County for a new trial. In Circuit Court on Dec. 6, 2012, Ballard ranted to Judge Groton that he

wanted a private attorney instead of being represented again by Anderson. The judge told him that Anderson “is as good as the best there is and better than most.” On Jan. 4, Ballard joined Anderson at the defense table in the courtroom and entered an Alford plea to the charge of second-degree murder. In an Alford plea, the defendant does not admit guilt, but concedes that the prosecution has sufficient evidence for a conviction. Last Friday in court, Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby said the victim’s family wanted to see an end to the case. They were grateful, he said, “that this day had come and they could move forward.” Before being sentenced, Ballard spoke briefly to the victim’s family. “I did not mean to kill nobody,” Ballard said. “I get angry sometime and get mad. I’m just trying to move on. I never meant to hurt nobody. I hope you’ll forgive me one day.” Ballard then asked the judge to sentence him to the Patuxent Institution, a treatment-oriented maximum security facility in Jessup. Oglesby said he wanted Ballard to be “in general population in prison” elsewhere and Judge Groton agreed. He then sentenced Ballard to 30 years in prison, with all but 20 years suspended. He also gave him credit for 891 days already served.

that had been entered. The driver’s door had been opened on one and a passenger side door had been opened on another. The owner of one of the vehicles said she was missing a $50 bill and some smaller bills. She also said a silver and black bracelet was missing. The owner of the other vehicle said someone had entered it and moved paperwork around. Bullen was charged with theft of less than $1,000, three counts of theft of less than $100 and three counts of rogue and vagabond. According to the charging document, Bullen told police he had it coming and that Karma caught up to him. Bullen might have been referring to his less than friendly actions last March when he and his friend, Nicholas Townsend, 23, of Ocean City, were canoeing in Assawoman Bay in the early morning hours on March 2. The canoe capsized at about 4 a.m. and Bullen swam ashore, used a brick to break into a home where he changed into dry clothes and then went home. It was approximately seven hours later that he reported the disappearance of his friend, whose body was not discovered until March 17 in the bay just north of the Route 90 bridge.

On March 7, they saw her enter the car and sit in the passenger seat. Richard Sheldon Bless, 26, of Berlin, sat in the driver’s seat. During a search, 46 plastic bags containing off-white powder were found on Staggers and a pill bottle with 42 oxycodone pills was found in her purse, according to the charging document.

OBITUARIES Carl Charles Kocman III BERLIN — Carl Kocman, 66, a longtime senior graphic artist for Ocean City Today following his retirement as an art director at Certain Teed, King of Prussia, Pa., died Monday, March 4, 2013, of a heart-related illness. A father, husband and Harley-Davidson enthusiast, Mr. Kocman Carl Kocman III was born Sept 25, 1946 in Hatfield, Pa. He went on to become a self-taught graphic designer, beginning his employment as a printer with Safeguard Business Systems in Landsdale, Pa. He worked his way up in the company and became involved in sales, traveling to trade shows all over the world, before he retired and moved to West Ocean City to care for his parents, both of whom are now deceased. He is survived by his wife, Jeannee, and daughters, Lauren Dana Kocman of Delray Beach, Fla., and Nicole (Kocman) Puls of Desert Palm, Calif. Besides being an avid golfer and having many hobbies, which included restoring classic Corvettes, motorcycle riding, gardening and woodworking, Mr. Kocman decided he needed more to do to occupy his time and joined Ocean City Today as a graphic artist in 2002. His particular joy in that department was de-

signing the covers of the now-defunct Cablechannels. Like many of its readers, he expressed his displeasure, as only he could, with its closing. Illness, however, forced him to retire from the paper in 2011. Despite what sometimes appeared to be gruff countenance, which was generally delivered in jest, Mr. Kocman was a devoted family man of many facets. He

played the accordion as a child, delighted in decorating his home for Christmas and was a devoted planter of flowers. He also had a menagerie of pets: Bunky, a German Shepard, Rotney, a Rottweiler, two cats, Kona and Leo, Charlie, a rabbit and Julie, a guinea pig. What most people saw, however, was Mr. Kocman and his “Fatboy” Harley,

which he rode with members of a local club that often frequented the old 707 bar in West Ocean City or Trader Lee’s on Route 50. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no services, although friends will gather on Sunday, June 30, for a memorial ride. Contact Matt Impink for more information at 443-783-5126.

SDHS students to perform romantic mystery this wknd. SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (March 15, 2013) The Stephen Decatur High School Theatre Production class will present an adaptation of “The Moonstone,” a romantic mystery based on the novel by Wilkie Collins, March 15-16, at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. The play is a tale, narrated from a series of letters and documents. It is set in the 19th century, and chronicles mysterious events connected to an extraordinary yellow diamond that, despite being guarded by three mysterious Brahmin priests, was stolen from an ancient Hindu idol and gifted to a young girl. A curse of certain disaster has been vowed against anyone who would dare disturb the sacred gem, “and to all of his house and name who received it after him,” according to the novel. The performance is under the direction of SDHS performing arts teacher Gwen Lehman and the novel was adapted for the stage by R. N. Sandberg.

Worcester adult education earns high marks in state ranking (March 15, 2013) Worcester County Public School’s Adult Education Program earned one of the highest instructional rankings in the state, out of the 26 adult education programs in Maryland. According to the Maryland Department of Labor & Licensing Regulation, which oversees adult education programs statewide, the program achieved the “Highest Performance” ranking in six of the 10 instructional categories evaluated, for the 2011-2012 school year. In addition, the English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE) and General Education Development (GED) programs performed above the state av-

erage in eight of the 10 categories. “We attribute this high level of success to many factors,” said program facilitator Mark Ferraro, “but if I had to narrow the reasons to one word, the word would be ‘dedication.’ We have dedicated instructors who want to empower our students with a great education. We have dedicated students who are willing to face the challenges of earning a rigorous education through a less traditional pathway. We have great community partners who open their doors for adult education classes, and we have a school system that provides us with the resources we need to facilitate success. It is a win-win for

everyone involved.” Statistics for 2011-2012 also revealed that adult education for Worcester County Public Schools ranked second in the state when comparing the number of students who retained employment. Moreover, 73 percent of the active GED students achieved their Maryland high school diploma. “Many of our graduates continue their education at the post-secondary level,” Ferraro said. “For example, seven of our 2012 graduates earned scholarships to Wor-Wic Community College from the Optimist Club of Ocean City/Berlin.” According to Ferraro, in-

stilling a passion for lifelong learning is one of the goals of the Adult Education Program. During an annual graduation ceremony, the Worcester County Board of Education and the school system celebrate students who have earned their Maryland high school diploma through the Adult Education Program. The 2013 graduation ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 20, in the Central Office’s Board Meeting Room in Newark. The ceremony is open to the public. For information regarding registration for adult education classes, contact Ferraro at 410-632-5071.

Maryland fourth-graders invited to submit essays toMML contest (March 15, 2013) Fourth-graders throughout Maryland are invited to participate in the Maryland Municipal League’s annual “If I Were Mayor” essay contest, which challenges students across the state to share their thoughts on how they would lead their local, municipal government if they had the opportunity to be mayor. Essays must be received by MML no later than March 30. Since 2001, MML’s “If I were Mayor …” essay contest has challenged students

to learn about municipal government through creatively sharing their thoughts on being a mayor. Each 275-word essay must open with the line, “If I were Mayor, I would ….” and answer three questions revolved around the 2013 theme, which is “Vision for the Future.” Any Maryland student enrolled in the fourth grade during the 2012-2013 school year may participate. All entries must be submitted by the student’s teacher. Eleven regional winners will be presented with a $100 cash prize and the

Governor’s Citation at a special ceremony in Annapolis on May 21. “This contest is a fun, yet important way to help students from all over Maryland learn more about the importance of municipalities and inspire them to become our next generation of local leadership,” said Scott A. Hancock, executive director of the Maryland Municipal League. “This year’s theme is especially exciting, as it will give these young students the chance to share their vision of what they would like to see for the future

of their city of town.” The contest is sponsored by Maryland Municipal League, in partnership with the Maryland Mayors’ Association, Local Government Insurance Trust, and Injured Workers’ Insurance Fund. Essays are judged based on essay relation to contest topic, displayed knowledge about municipal government and the role of a mayor, creativity and proper use of grammar.

Dancing with Daddy More than 80 princesses stepped out of their carriages Feb. 16, at the Stephen Decatur High School. The girls were arrayed in flowers, fur and glitter and even the gents had a magical sparkle about them as they made their entrance through the softly falling snow for the annual Father Daughter Dance, sponsored by The Worship Center, Crossways Church and Sonrise Church of Berlin. Fathers look forward to this event all year as a chance to exhibit the love and respect their daughters should expect to receive from future suitors. The daughters also eagerly anticipate dressing up, being cherished and honored in elegance as the incredible young ladies they have become. Several fathers were blessed to accompany multiple young beauties to the sweetheart dance, but none of their daughters were lacking attention. The objective is that each of these exquisite girls, after enjoying this wonderful night out with Dad, will settle for nothing less in years to come.

KAIL TO WRESTLE FOR UNIVERSITY OF MD Decatur senior recruited by college coaches for football and wrestling LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (March 15, 2013) As senior Ryan Kail walked into the quiet, empty wrestling room at Stephen Decatur High School on Tuesday, a place where he’s spent countless hours over the past three years, he could already feel sadness setting in. The Seahawk standout ended his final season at Decatur two weeks ago and is now looking forward to his next season on the mat — as a University of Maryland Terrapin. Kail, who wrestled in the heavyweight division during each of the three years he competed, said he enjoyed his overall experience wrestling for Decatur. “It was fun. I started as a sophomore so I was kind of new to the whole sport. My first year I was on JV, then throughout the years I just kept progressing,” he said. “I’ve learned to always try to be your best because of the tradition that we have.” Kail said the Decatur wrestling program is traditionally so strong because of the “dedicated coaches that try to get the best out of all of us.” This season, Kail finished runner-up during the Bayside Conference championship meet. He won the 4A/3A East Regional title in the 285-pound division. Kail, who turned 18 years old on Thursday, also competed in the 4A/3A state tournament. He was not only successful on the mat, but on the football field as well. As a senior, Kail was named to the All-Conference

First Team for offense, defense and special teams. In December, Kail played in the Maryland Crab Bowl — the only statewide high school football all-star game that features the best seniors from public and private schools in Maryland. Kail was recruited by college coaches for football and wrestling. After weighing his options, he chose to wrestle for the University of Maryland. The school, he said is “a good fit” for him. “I was just looking to get into the best school and Maryland is the best school for wrestling and academics. It’s a big school and it’s not too far, but it’s not too close either, and they have a really good wrestling program,” he said. “I just like the ‘Maryland pride’ thing — being able to go to a high school in Maryland and then be able to wrestle for Maryland seems pretty cool. “I’m really excited,” he continued. “They’re moving into the Big Ten Conference with schools like Ohio State and Iowa so I’ll get to travel a lot.” Kail was recruited in December and after visiting the school and meeting some wrestlers, he made a verbal commitment at the end of February, a few days before he competed in the state tournament. He will sign on the dotted line in April. Kail plans to redshirt (delay or suspension of an athlete’s participation in order to lengthen his or her period of eligibility) his freshman year. “I won’t go to any of the matches, but I’ll practice with team and go to open tournaments with all the other kids that redshirted and that will help me get better and get experience. So after my senior year, I’ll have another year of eligibility,” Kail said. “I’m redshirting my freshman year because I wouldn’t be able to break the [starting] line-up because they have a

returning heavyweight [who’s] really good. He’s going to be a senior. I’m just going to try to get as good as I can and hopefully break into the line-up my sophomore year.” Todd Martinek, head coach of the Decatur varsity wrestling team, said he is proud of Kail. “[Ryan] and his family have made a lot of sacrifices to wrestle and be dedicated during the season and off-season. It shows what an athlete he is and I can’t wait to see him wrestle for his home state ‘Terps,’” Martinek said. “It also means a lot to our program sending another athlete to a Division I program. I think Ryan is going to learn a lot from the great coaches at Maryland.” Kail plans to major in criminal justice while at the University of Maryland and hopes for a career with the FBI.

County recreation department offers new progs. (March 15, 2013) The Worcester County Department of Recreation & Parks is offering a new youth sports lineup this spring to encourage people to get up, get out and get active. The department’s Youth Spring Soccer is open to children ages 3 through eighth grade. Players will be divided into five coed age divisions (age 3-4, grades K-1, grades 2-3, grades 4-5 and grades 6-8). The league runs Sunday afternoons and kicks off April 7, when all age divisions will meet their coaches and teammates. Teams from each town will be formed, and games will take place at the John Walter Smith Park in Snow Hill. After-school dodge ball, back by popular demand, takes place on Thursdays

from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. for participants in grades 4 - 8. Participants will play traditional dodge ball games and other versions of this favorite throughout the session. The games will test players’ abilities to throw, catch, dodge, and out-maneuver their opponents. The six-week program begins Thursday, April 11, and costs $25 per participant. Spike Express Youth Volleyball returns for participants ages 9-14 on Tuesdays, April 9-June 25, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Participants will develop volleyball skills with jumping, setting and handling the ball. The cost for this program is $25 per person. Girls are encouraged to register for the Youth Recreational Softball Program.

Pocomoke, Snow Hill, and Berlin teams are being formed now, and practices are being scheduled. The league will be open for girls in grades 2-8, with a cost of $25 per participant. Practice begins in March, and games will begin in April. Pigtail (grades 2-5) games take place on Tuesday nights, and Ponytail (grades 6-8) games take place on Wednesday nights. Financial aid is available for the spring youth programs to those who demonstrate a need. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited for these spring youth programs.

St. Patrick’s Day 5k Saturday LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (March 15, 2013) Before the 32nd annual St. Patrick’s Day parade and festivities begin Saturday, kick start the morning by participating in the third annual St. Patty’s Day Boardwalk 5k run. “This event just adds to the weekend festivities,” said run co-organizer Chris Klebe of OC Tri-Running Sports Inc. “We have people coming from all over. We have about six or seven states represented.” The inaugural event in 2011 drew ap-

proximately 530 runners. Last year, close to 1,000 people participated, and Klebe anticipates about the same amount, if not more, runners for the 2013 race. Klebe said approximately 750 athletes pre-registered online for the event. Preregistration closed Tuesday. Those interested in taking part in the race can sign up today, Friday, under the tent on Fourth Street near the Boardwalk and Shenanigan’s Irish Pub, an event sponsor, from 5:30-8 p.m. The cost to participate is $38.

will receive a commemorative T-shirt. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit Diakonia, a West Ocean City residence that provides emergency and transitional housing, food services, counseling and assistance to its guests. Last year, OC Tri-Running donated approximately $1,800 to the organization as well as food from the race after-party. There is a slight change in the course this year because of Boardwalk construction. The 5k run is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on the concrete portion of the Boardwalk and Third Street, where bagpipers will play to kick off the event. Athletes will head toward the inlet, run around the pier then follow the edge of the inlet parking lot and make a right turn under the tram station and onto the Boardwalk. Runners will head north along the boards, passing Shenanigan’s Irish Pub on Fourth Street and making a right at 16th Street, before heading south back to Third Street for the finish. The course is subject to change. An after-race party and awards ceremony will take place at Shenanigan’s. Medals will be presented to the first- and second-place overall male and female finishers. The top three male and female placers in each age group will also receive awards. “People enjoy running events where they can have a good time after. It’s a fun, family atmosphere,” Klebe said.

Soccer Series wraps up this weekend with adult competition league,” Strickler said. The past several years the adult competitions have taken place during the town’s St. Patrick’s Day parade weekend. “I think that’s a big draw. [The participants] like that,” Strickler said. The four-weekend tournament began Feb. 22, with 11 boys’ and 10 girls’ U18 teams participating over three days. March 1-3, 22 U10 and 30 U14 boys’ and girls’ teams took the field. Last weekend, 26 U12 and 24 U16 girls’ and boys’ squads competed. This year, 173 club, travel and recreational teams of all ability levels, from the mid-Atlantic region registered for the tournament. The series has grown so much since its inception that, in 2009, the three-weekend event was extended to four to accommodate the overwhelming number of athletes. “The U18 and adult tournaments used to be on the same weekend. We were turning away so many adult teams so we added a fourth weekend,” Strickler said. The adult tournament originally consisted of Maryland and Delaware teams, but as the event has increased in popularity, it now draws squads from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For more information about the tournament or other Ocean City Recreation and Parks programs, leagues and camps, call 410-250-0125 or visit www.oceancitymd.gov.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (March 15, 2013) The 25th annual St. Patrick’s Indoor Soccer Tournament series, sponsored by the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department, will wrap up this weekend when 35 men’s and 15 women’s teams compete in the adult open (18 and older) division. Games will begin today, Friday, at the Northside Park Complex on 125th Street and continue through Sunday. The first matches will kick off at 3 p.m. today. Soccer action will conclude around 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Starting time for matches on Saturday is 7 a.m. Play will finish around midnight. Competition will take place from 8 a.m. to about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tournament games will be six-on-six (including a goalie) in the west gym. In the smaller east gym, contests will be fiveon-five. Each half will be 17 minutes long. Teams are guaranteed two pool play games before they are seeded in a single elimination playoff tournament. “It’s definitely a competitive tournament in both the men’s and women’s divisions,” said Recreation Supervisor Ron Strickler, who organizes the tournament with co-worker Kim Kinsey. “The skill level is very high. There are a lot of college players, former college ball players and a few pro soccer players competing.”

REAL ESTATE REPORT

Time to clean outside home LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer (March 15, 2013) Spring has nearly sprung, and it’s the time of year for homeowners to air out their houses and get down to the business of a good spring cleaning. But in addition to vacuuming under your bed and dusting your blinds, it’s also a good time of year to institute an annual exterior home evaluation checklist. Here are some areas of concern that are oftentimes overlooked: ■ Crawl space: With spring comes rain, and with rain comes high groundwater. Check your crawl space for level ground to prevent pooling water. Check that plastic covering is in place and pulled tight to all sides of your foundation. And check that insulation is in place tightly (paper backing should be facing up, or toward the living area, with insulation material visible). ■ Gutters: Check to make sure gutters are clear of debris and that all downspouts are directed away from the house’s foundation, preferably 6 feet or more. You should also be careful not to “box in” any water against the home’s foundation with flower beds, stacked stone, landscape ties, etc. ■ Roof and Trim: Winter and spring nor’easters can wreak havoc on roof shingles and trim work. Check the roof for any missing shingles, remove any loose debris such as tree limbs, and check for any loose trim work. ■ Landscaping: Overgrown bushes don’t just look unpleasant, they can also create a ripe environment for insects to invade spaces where they don’t belong, as well as damage your home’s siding. Trim bushes about 4-6 inches away from the house.

NEW GREENE TURTLES TO OPEN Goal to have 150 locations throughout Eastern U.S. LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (March 15, 2013) White Marsh Mall, on Perry Hall Boulevard in Nottingham, Md., is home to the newest Greene Turtle restaurant. The 36th Greene Turtle location, which opened March 11, includes a 76-seat outdoor patio, a two-floor, 6,300square-foot interior layout with dining room seating and a bar area. “We have great expectations for this store’s success and believe that this team will make The Greene Turtle Franchising Corporation very proud,” stated Bob Barry, CEO/president of the Edgewater, Md.based chain in an e-mail. There is no end in sight as The Greene Turtle brand continues to expand. Franchise sites opened in Gambrills, Md. and Newark, Del., just after Labor Day and Christmas 2012, respectively, and “next month we’ll mark two milestones, as we open a restaurant that will be our first on Long Island and the first located outside of the Mid-Atlantic region,” Barry stated in a press release. “We’re making sure and steady progress toward our goal of having 150 locations throughout the eastern United States, and as this new site shows, we will continue doing so by opening both company and franchise locations,” he said. Last year, Greene Turtle restaurants opened in Annapolis, Arlington and Fairfax, Va., Gambrills, Md., Newark, Del., and Baltimore’s McHenry Row. The company has 36 open locations and deals in place that will see sites debuting on Long Island, N.Y., and in Fairfax County, Va., as well as in other parts of Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. One site has been awarded in Pennsylvania, as well. Brothers John and Jeff Froccaro will open the first of at least 10 units on Long Island, sometime next month, according to Barry. “I think it’s absolutely great.

White Marsh Mall, on Perry Hall Boulevard in Nottingham, Md., is home to the 36th Greene Turtle restaurant. The establishment opened March 11, and includes a 76-seat outdoor patio and a two-floor, 6,300-squarefoot interior layout with dining room seating and bar area.

Long Island is a natural fit,” said Steve Pappas, owner of “The Original” Greene Turtle on 116th Street in Ocean City, which will celebrate its 37th anniversary in June. “It’s a big area of local communities strung together. It also has a strong lacrosse tradition and The Greene Turtle is synonymous with lacrosse.” The Greene Turtle strategic growth plan includes reaching 150 units throughout the east and expanding into Pennsylvania, New Jersey, more of New York and New England, as well as additional locations in Virginia, especially Richmond, Roanoke, Blacksburg and the Hampton Roads area, and on into the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida, Barry said. While the chain will continue to open corporatelyowned “company-operated” sites, much of the expansion is intended to be driven by new and existing franchisees. As for appeal, The Greene Turtle prides itself on not only having a loyal following among sports fans, but also being a destination for families seeking affordable, “something-for-everyone” meals in a comfortable setting, friends gathering to socialize and others who crave comfort food and a friendly atmosphere for lunch, dinner, happy hour or late evening fare, Barry said. “There’s a wide range of

people that come to The Turtle and we try to create a fun atmosphere in every location,” Pappas said. When “The Original” Greene Turtle opened on 116th Street in 1976, customers could get peanuts, National Premium beer on draft, Budweiser, Molson, Miller Lite and Miller High Life by the bottle and some liquor was available. That was about it. Pappas said he never imagined how much the business would grow. “We were just a couple of jocks at Salisbury. Seven, 10, 15 units at the most, we thought. We never dreamt we’d be at 36 now. We’ve gone a long way with it,” he said. “We’ve got these mega bars now. It’s just amazing. It makes you feel proud about where The Turtle’s come.” Pappas and Tommy Dickerson worked at the Ocean City bar when it opened in 1976. In their early 20s and just out of college—they attended Salisbury University (then Salisbury State)—the pair bought the business in 1981. In 1986, Pappas and Dickerson’s old college friend, Bill Packo, joined the business and they opened a Greene Turtle in Fells Point in Baltimore. Food was added to the menu. Because offering food was a success, the 116th location See EMPLOYEES on Page 46A

began serving cold sandwiches, soups and some hot items shortly after. The restaurant began to outgrow its 1,600 square feet of space and soon expanded into two units next door. A kitchen was then added. Mike Sanford, who the men met while in college, joined the business in 1990. That year a location in Laurel, Md. opened. Eight years later, two more Greene Turtles opened in Maryland: one in Edgewater and another in West Ocean City. Sanford ran the Laurel then the Edgewater restaurants, while Pappas was in charge of the north Ocean City hot spot, Dickerson the West Ocean City location and Packo the Fells Point eatery. In 2002, The Greene Turtle Franchising Corporation was formed. Four years later, in 2004, the first two Turtle franchises opened their doors in Towson

and Salisbury. Pappas said he and Dickerson, who both sit on the franchise corporation board, are still involved in The Greene Turtle operations. Pappas considers the 116th Street Greene Turtle, Fells Point and West Ocean City locations the â&#x20AC;&#x153;three original affiliateâ&#x20AC;? restaurants, while the others that have opened are corporate or franchise locations. In January 2010, The Greene Turtle cracked Entrepreneur Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious Top 500 fastest growing franchise list, coming in at No. 465. When the magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January 2011 list came out, The Greene Turtle moved up 126 spots to No. 339. It was ranked No. 1 in the Sports Bar & Grille Category. In 2012, Restaurant Management Magazine ranked The Greene Turtle

among the Top 10 Franchise Deals. In January 2013, The Greene Turtle once again made Entrepreneur Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious Top Franchise 500 Opportunities list, coming in at No. 367. Although each restaurant is unique, Pappas said the important thing when franchising is to keep the same brand, the consistency and quality of the food, the atmosphere and good customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concept is simple. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just good food, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun place to be,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always prided ourselves on our employees. When Tommy and I started, the most important part of The Turtle are the people that work there. There are a million sports bars, but [employees] are what makes The Turtle so successful and different from a lot of places.â&#x20AC;? The Greene Turtle franchise received the McCormick Cornerstone Award in

2009 and again in May 2011. The award is given to individuals and companies who best illustrate that the foodservice industry stands as the cornerstone of the local communities in which they operate. The Greene Turtle (statewide) and four other establishments were inducted into the Restaurant Association of Maryland Hospitality Hall of Honor in 2011. The Hospitality Hall of Honor recognizes leaders who exhibit dedication, courage and creativity while contributing to the positive reputation and overall improvement of the industry.

Parade traffic

The parade: Traffic patterns will be affected during parade The Ocean City Police Department is reminding citizens to expect traffic delays this St. Patrick’s Day, as the Delmarva Irish-American Club hosts its 32nd annual parade and festival. The tradition, which has become one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the state, will begin at noon on Saturday, March 16, at 58th Street and march south on Coastal Highway to the 45th Street Village. To provide an ample amount of space for the parade’s participating floats, bands and motorized units, southbound traffic with be reduced to two lanes from 62nd Street to 43rd Street. Northbound traffic will remain open; however, no left turns or U-turns will be permitted along the parade route from the northbound lane, including at 62nd Street. Residents and visitors will likely see traffic delays on southbound Coastal Highway as early as 9 a.m. and should expect congestion until 2 p.m. To avoid traffic delays, viewers are urged to arrive before 10:30 a.m. and to view the parade from 58th Street south to 45th Street. Ocean City Police are highly recommending motorists entering the resort to use Route 50, as traffic is not expected to be as heavy. In addition, heavy pedestrian traffic is also expected along the parade route and in surrounding areas. Pedestrians are encouraged to use crosswalks and cross with caution.

EVERYONE LOVES A PARADE Ocean City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, the second-largest in the state, kicks off the resort’s annual celebration and leads revelers stright to the heart of a giant Irish Festival LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor

O

cean City’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade traditionally takes place on the Saturday before the holiday. Because March 17 falls on a Sunday this year, parade coordinator Buck Mann anticipates the celebration one day prior will draw a significant crowd. “It’s going to be the biggest and the best. We’re up about 15 percent [parade participants] from last year,” he said. “The way [St. Patrick’s Day] falls on the weekend, it makes for a whole

weekend of festivities. We’re expecting a tremendous crowd.” Sponsored by the Delmarva IrishAmerican Club, the 32nd annual parade will begin at noon on 58th Street. Participants will travel south on Coastal Highway to 45th Street, where an Irish festival — complete with traditional Irish food, such as corned beef, and drinks, including green beer, Guinness and Irish coffees — will take place. The festival will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until about 4 p.m. There will be holiday attire available, as well as entertainment provided by Pat Garvey. The resort event, Maryland’s sec-

ond-largest St. Patrick’s Day parade, will feature approximately 120 entries this year. Participants will be coming from all across Maryland, as well as from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. The parade was not always as big as it is today. During its inaugural procession, the parade featured just five or six walkers. The following year, it grew to include a Pontiac convertible and four waitresses from McGee’s, the local Irish bar now known as Shenanigan’s Irish Pub. Located on the Boardwalk at Fourth Street, Shenanigan’s continues to be part of the annual celebra-

A number of parties will take place

across town and beyond, as restaurants and bars pay homage to the Irish saint with corned beef and cabbage, green beer, Guinness and whiskey. Here are a few of the events on tap for Saturday:

WEST OCEAN CITY: ■ 19th Hole Bar & Grill, Route 611: Specials from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. include $8.99 corned beef, cabbage and potatoes, $3.17 Irish beers and

MOLLY AND JOHN O’BRIEN Over the years, the O’Briens have attended many St. Patrick’s Day parades, including those in Washington. D.C., Baltimore and Seattle. After moving to the Ocean City area in 1996, they became regulars at the parade and soon joined the Delmarva Irish-American Club. Since that time, they have become parade day volunteers. They sell ads for the parade booklet, as well as assist in the set-up and removal of the stage for the Irish dancers. John grew up in the Rockville area and graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in computer science. Molly grew up in Towson and graduated from Towson University with a degree in fine arts. The two have been married 22 years and have two daughters. Sinéad attends Memphis College of Art in Tennessee and Fiona attends Stephen De-

catur High School. The family is very devoted to continuing their Irish heritage and do so with song and dance. John plays the mandolin, Molly and Fiona play guitar and sing, and Sinéad plays the violin and sings. Fiona is also a member of Footsteps Irish dance team and teaches an Irish dance class at Footsteps Dance Academy. The O’Briens visited Ireland for the O’Brien Clan reunion in 2002. They explored the history of the O’Brien family and its roots in Brian Boru, the last High King of Ireland. They traveled around the Limerick area, touring various O’Brien castles and monuments. They also visited Galway and ferried on to Inishbofin, an island off the west coast of Ireland where Molly has family. Continued on Page 3B

Local clubs and organizations such as the DIAC, Raven Roosts, Maryland Coastal Bays, Delmarva Emerald Society, Sons of Italy and American Legions, among others, will also be represented. The Chesapeake Caledonia Pipe and Drum Band, the Ocean City Pipe Band and Stephen Decatur and Sussex Central high schools’ marching bands will provide just some of the musical entertainment. This year, a St. Patrick’s Day hat, big enough to hold 1,724 pints of stout, will be featured in the parade. The hat is made up of more than 19 square feet of paper mache and 10 pounds of glitter, weighs nearly 200 pounds and took more than three weeks to create. Requesting world record book status, CPRDelaware’s float will also include baby and adult CPR manikins celebrating the day under a rainbow and a pot of gold claiming “Erin Learned CPR, because you can’t always depend on luck,” according to a press release.

Sham Jam kicks off OC St. Paddy’s celebrations LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor

More than 400 people attended Sham Jam 2012, according to Joel Feldman, Ocean City FOOLS chapter fundraising coordinator and event organizer, second from left. The fourth annual Sham Jam will begin at 5 p.m. today, Friday, at the 45th Street Taphouse and OC Steamers.

fighters Foundation. The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the nonprofit foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor the country’s fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers. In 2010 and 2011, the OC FOOLS chapter donated a total of $5,000 to the foundation. The donation represented proceeds from the annual Sham Jam

(March 15, 2013) St. Patrick’s Day activities will kick off today, Friday, with the fourth annual Sham Jam to benefit the Ocean City FOOLS and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The party will begin at 5 p.m. at 45th Street Taphouse and OC Steamers in the 45th Street Village in Ocean City. The cost to participate is $10, which includes a souvenir event pint glass, drink specials and live entertainment by Johnny Bling at 7 p.m. Sham Jam Tshirts and food will be available for purchase. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. More than 400 people attended Sham Jam last year, according to Joel Feldman, Ocean City FOOLS chapter fundraising coordinator and Sham Jam organizer. All are welcome to attend the 2013 celebration. Feldman said he is expecting an even larger crowd this year. The resort’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade is set to take place the following day. “It’s a good kickoff to the St. Patrick’s weekend in Ocean City,” he said. Sham Jam will benefit the Ocean City chapter of the Fraternal Order of Leatherheads Society (FOOLS) International for advanced firefighter training. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the National Fallen Fire-

events and the group’s annual Brotherhood Block party, held in conjunction with the firemen’s convention in June. Last year, the OC FOOLS chapter, which has more than 100 members, presented the foundation with $7,500. For more information, visit the Ocean-City-FOOLS-Alpha-Chapter Facebook page or call Feldman at 410365-7344. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available for the Brotherhood Block party in June.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Congratulations, Lamb. This is the week to finish your project and then bask in your well-earned approval. (And if you like, you also can say “bah” to all those detractors.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The bold Bovine could find a new opportunity too intriguing to be ignored. But don’t charge into it. Go slowly so you see how things develop as you get more involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might try to soften your stand on that important issue. A little more flexibility actually could get you what you’re looking for. A new friend enters the picture midweek. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your inner voice is on the mark when it advises you to tackle that family problem now! The sooner you’re able to come to terms with it, the better it will be for everyone. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Someone reveals important news about a longtime associate. But before you decide how to deal with this information, make sure it’s reliable, and not simply self-serving. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Some intensive soul-searching early in the week can help you reach a decision by week’s end that should please both you and the other person involved. Good luck. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The possibility of a career change is intriguing. Learn more about what it can offer and what it cannot. Weigh everything carefully. And ask questions. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Work is your priority this week as you try to make up for lost time. Expect help from someone who cares about you. Things take a welcome turn by the weekend. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A health problem causes some anxiety early in the week. But prompt medical attention soon eases everyone’s concerns. Enjoy an artsfilled weekend. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) As much as you might resent it, a changing situation could require you to adjust your plans accordingly. The good news: An associate agrees to cooperate. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) That old problem is finally resolved, just in time for you to take on a new work-related project. This one could be the super door-opener you’ve been looking for. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The early part of the week presents some difficult hurdles. But once you get over them, you can start to focus on matters that are more important to you. BORN THIS WEEK: You are respected for your honesty and your dedication to doing the right thing, no matter how difficult that might be.

FINNEGAN’S Ocean City’s first “Finnegan’s Wake,” sponsored by the Friends of the Worcester County Developmental Center, took place last Saturday in Seacrets’ Morley Hall on 49th Street. Finnegan’s Wake is a mock Irish funeral that notes the supposed passing of Tim Finnegan. The Ocean City event was loosely based on a traditional Irish song of the same name about an Irish laborer. Money raised will benefit the Friends of WCDC, the auxiliary that supports the Worcester County Developmental Center’s mission — to empower developmentally challenged adults in making individual choices in how they live and work in their communities.

Kicking off promptly at noon at 61st street, the paraders wend their way down Coastal Highway to the 45th Street Village Green to party hearty at the Irish festival. Bring the whole family and friends to enjoy boatloads o’ Irish food, fun, mementos, entertainment and music, of course.

’Twas luck of Irish that drew Kemps to their seaside home Dare, Barbara Schmidt, the Gaeglers, Naomi Popoli and Cal Hook. Many happy returns to March birthday kids, Carol Ferrante, Eric Leister, Sue Rayfield, Paul O’Brien, Gus Biancaniello, John Vittek, Angela Rossetti, Jim Halsey, Patti Burns and Joe Mulholland. ’Twas the luck of the Irish that brought the Kemps to this ideal place, Ocean City, to retire. Local seniors tell me they would love to stay in town. Hey, what rental apartment complex landlord wouldn’t love residents incapable of partying all hours of the night? Sounds like a good investment to me. A party/meeting room would be a plus and an on-call, live in or out, cooks and chauffeurs. Sorta’ a fraternity or sorority setup, sans the grief. Keep in mind, baby boomer entrepreneurs — our place will be your place in a couple of years. C U in OC!

Though only mid-March,it’s not too soon to plan Easter feast FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Surprise holiday visitors with stuffed ham this year DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (March 15, 2013) Individualism is the primary concept that distinguishes one chef from another. The word “individuality” is commonly stipulated as a state or attribute of one who possesses characteristics that differentiates him from others. But the perception of “uniqueness” is a far more intricate theme. Supremacy is also based on sociological and cultural origins. Our “roots” have a diverse influence that can only enhance the subject of

specialization. Inimitability is the goal, even though the idea might not always be attainable. Quintessential qualities are not the only ingredient that self-propel one to his own state of preeminence. Utmost determination and inherent attentiveness propagate the bar of excellence. As with any artist, there is a drive within to rise above the level of proximity and reach for the unthinkable. Our insatiable appetite for fabulous tasting food is another factor that must be considered. Yes, food is a necessity, but the tempting morsels are also a luxury. Pleasing the senses is a euphoric experience that adds to the intrinsic

psychology of cooking. These ensuing factors raise the level of gastric skills to implausible culinary feats. The goal of the novice chef may not be to ascertain such levels of proficiency, but the remnants should influence one’s perspective and style. That being said, Easter is around the corner and it is not too soon to plan the menu. Ham is a popular entrée with this religious holiday and the question is, how can we elevate our preparation for such a scared occasion? Spiral hams with the bone in are a tradition, but has one considered removing the bone and replacing it with stuffing? The element of surprise is a key component in the art of entertaining. Removing the bone is a simple procedure. Place the ham on a carving board. Remove the bone carefully and do not disrupt the integrity of the meat. Freeze the bone for future use. Butterfly the meat and lay it flat on the board. Then add the stuffing evenly and roll the ham into a log. Tie the ham with kitchen string at 3-inch intervals and bake accordingly. The stuffing is the next subject for discussion. Day-old bread or packaged dry stuffing mix incorporated with a mirepoix of carrots, celery and onions is standard and suggested. A touch of garlic adds to the fiesta of flavors. The rest of the ingredients are a medley of personal

choices. Following are a few options for consideration. Pineapple and ham are a synonymous combination; a certain amount of sweetness needs to be incorporated to offset the saltiness of the meat. The addition of golden raisins and dried cherries add a rich depth to the stuffing. Fruit harmonizes the melody of flavors into one glorious dish. Dried stuffing requires some type of liquid to smooth out the coarseness of the dried bread. Chicken stock is the preferred choice; however, a blend of chicken stock and milk incorporate creaminess and also instills a fortified foundation. Subordination is imperative when one is preparing a meal; whether to use curly or flat leaf (Italian) parsley becomes a significant decision. The hearty stuffing requires a more full-bodied parsley in taste and consistency. Easter is a time of celebration and the ingenuity of stuffed ham symbolizes the offering of something special. A few extra steps will keep our cherished memories alive while placing an innovative twist for future blessings. Enjoy!

The purpose of this annual wage report is not to embarrass local government employees, but to allow taxpayers to be aware of Ocean City governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single largest expense and how elected officials are managing it.
