A La Quinta Inns & Suites franchise was recently approved by the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission to replace Ocean Voyager between 32nd and 33rd streets. Construction is likely to begin after the summer season.

LAQUINTATOREPLACE AGING33RDST.MOTEL Parking not ideal, but still an improvement ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a proposal this week that will see the aging Ocean Voyager motel on 33rd Street razed and redeveloped following this summer season into a La Quinta Inns & Suites franchise. The Ocean Voyager, as it now stands, is a two-story motel-style structure that occupies the block bordered by 33rd and 32nd streets to the north and south,

and Baltimore and Philadelphia avenues on the east and west. The motel also contains the Pirate’s Den restaurant and pool bar on its first floor. The proposed structure will be a five-story hotel, built in the standard style of the La Quinta franchise. Four floors of rooms will be built on colonnades, so that patrons can park on the first level, under the hotel. The new structure will also contain a bar/restaurant, with a maximum seating capacity of approximately 50 people. See FIRE on Page 30A

Our own Brandi Mellinger was fortunate to get pretty close to this beautiful barred owl early Saturday. The majestic woodland bird, known best as the “hoot owl” for its distinctive call, was perfectly content watching Route 113 traffic breeze by at sunrise, and he sat tight long enough for her to get this incredible photo at close range.

(April 5, 2013) Ocean City government’s subcommittee for surf beach scheduling held its inaugural meeting this week, putting forward a tentative deal that will seek to solve the economic disadvantage that surfboarders have when it comes to gaining shoreline elbow-room.

What surfers have working against them is that they take up several times the amount of space as the bathers with whom they compete for the beach, but generally don’t spend proportionally more money on lodging and food than the average summer guest. “You’d think it wouldn’t make a difference if somebody has to See BEACH on Page 8A

City’s crucial recycling exemption to be heard OC seeks exception from state policy for waste-toenergy garbage system ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (March 29, 2013) Ocean City will be facing a crucial decision in the Maryland House of Delegates this week, as hearings are held on a bill to grant the resort an exception to state recycling policies that could be a major drain on the resort economy. Senate Bill 1049, sponsored by Sen. Jim Mathias, has passed the upper body and was slated to be first heard in the house on April 4. The bill would amend the state’s environmental code to stipulate that “certain provisions of law requiring a certain property owner or manager of an apartment building or a council of unit owners of a condominium to provide for recycling for its residents do not apply in Ocean City.” Under a policy passed by the state legislature last spring, and scheduled to be enforced as of this October, all apartment buildings and condominiums with more than 10 units must provide for the collection, removal, and recycling of recyclable materials, or face a fine of $50 per day of viola-

tion. This fine would be levied on the property owner – either an individual or a condominium association – or the responsible property manager. The Town of Ocean City, however, does not offer traditional curbside recycling services. Several years ago, the city eliminated its recycling pickup and instead sends all its trash and garbage, not to a landfill, but to an incinerator plant in Pennsylvania, where it is burned to power electricity-generating turbines. “What we’re doing may not be the ideal situation as far as the state’s concerned, but if you look at it in reverse and look at other counties that recycle in the traditional way… they recycle 15 to 20 percent glass and cardboard, and the rest is going to the landfill,” said city Public Works Director Hal Adkins. “Ours doesn’t.”

Because Ocean City uses a waste-toenergy system, Mayor Rick Meehan said he was led to believe last year that systems such as the resort’s would be exempt from the new state recycling mandate. However, the policy to be enacted later this year has no such exemption. “I thought we had gotten Ocean City exempted … but I looked again and that’s not the case,” Meehan said at a recent City Council meeting. “Because we do not recycle in the traditional manner, but through waste-to-energy, we’ll be testifying to get an exception.” As such, Mathias is sponsoring legislation that introduces such an exemption clause. Although the bill was originally written to exempt any municipality or county that offers a wasteto-energy program, the current iteration of the bill has been amended to specifically exempt Ocean City and no one else. If the exemption is not well received, it could mean that the city’s property owners would have to arrange for private recyclables collection at their own expense. “They’d have to find space on their properties, likely have to increase their dues, and then arrange for a contractor to come in and take it to the recycling site,” Adkins said.

Overseas press, film industry find appeal in gallery ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) During the heyday of punk rock, being “big in Japan” was not necessarily a compliment, indicating that one didn’t have the appeal to make it in the Anglophone world. But for Boardwalk businessman Joe Kroart, being “big in Eastern Europe” is Joe Kroart only an indication of his continually growing appeal in America and abroad. “It’s been happening for years, more subtly, but now it’s being blown wide open,” Kroart said of the increasing recognition Ocean City – and particularly his own Ocean Gallery on the Boardwalk and Second Street – has been getting worldwide. Last month, Kroart received a copy of a magazine in the mail from Germany, where he had recently been told via telephone that he was going to be featured in a periodical. See KROART’S on Page 5A

Kroart’s recognition spreading abroad thanks to social media Continued from Page 4A

Due to his unfamiliarity with the Teutonic press, Kroart had no idea what it would amount to. But what he received was a thick copy of “View,� the monthly pictorial companion to the weekly magazine “Stern,� a publication that holds roughly the status of “Time� or “Newsweek� in the German-speaking world. And in it was a two-page spread of Ocean Gallery, with a brief text explaining what exactly the eccentric building was all about. “They pulled an image from ‘Weird Maryland,’� Kroart said of the travel guide he had been featured in some time back. “[View magazine] said that they look for really unique attractions all over the world. Literally hundreds of thousands of people had taken pictures of Ocean Gallery.� “Now it’s a part of their vacation and they’re putting them on Facebook and going all over the world in minutes.� Kroart said he continues to be amazed how his contact with producers and promoters has spread –in a completely unplanned way – the mystique of Ocean Gallery and the Boardwalk all over the world. He is still working on the possibility that a reality

TV show or documentary series could be shot at Ocean Gallery. This summer, Mikey Teutul of “American Chopper� fame will be doing another in-person art show at Ocean Gallery, an event that has attracted huge crowds in past years. “As soon as people in the promo industry hear about someone else doing something, they realize the potential is there,� Kroart said. This desire, apparently, extends out of American reality TV and into Slavic domestic cinema. The Russian-language film “Turbo� will also be returning to Ocean Gallery for wrap-up this summer after shooting there in the fall. “They’re shooting in Thailand, Russia, and then coming back to the U.S.,� Kroart said. At the end of the movie, the heroine of the film will be seen driving off in Kroart’s “Batmobile,� a car which cost him $28 in spray paint and scrap electronics to create. “I think it’s perfectly natural for people from Europe to come in and feel comfortable with this place as a destination,� Kroart said. “Our distribution has increased dramatically with technology.�

The above photo spread of Joe Kroart’s Ocean Gallery was featured last month in “View� magazine, the photographic companion to one of Germany’s leading periodicals.

‘Fair share’fees likely to be expanded to education sector ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Maryland’s so-called “fair share” policy for public sector unions is likely to soon be expanded to the school system, as a bill passed in the House of Delegates and likely to find approval in the Senate would mandate that county school districts establish a service or representation fee to be charged to non-union teachers and staff. House Bill 667 mandates that the state’s county-level school boards negotiate with their respective unions – both those for credentialed teachers and non-credentialed support staff – to establish a “reasonable fee” to be collected from the paychecks of non-union teachers and staff and paid to the collective bargaining unit. The reasoning behind this, and that behind previous “fair share” policies in the state, is that public employees who choose not to join their recognized union are still de-facto represented by the union for bargaining purposes. Maryland recognizes county-level education unions, including the Worcester County Teachers Association and the Worcester County Education Support Personnel Association, as the exclusive bargaining unit for their respective professions. But the state still maintains an “open shop,” meaning that union membership is not a requisite for employment.

Because of this exclusive right of representation, however, unions typically act on behalf of the entire working body, not just their bona-fide members. “I don’t want to speak for the whole board, but I think it’s the case that we think of them all as one group,” said Worcester County Board of Education President Bob Rothermel. “We don’t separate them into union and non-union.” The recent contracts negotiated between the schools’ administration and the WCTA and WCESPA apply to all employees, whether they are dues-paying union members or not. “The concept is that [the union] does the bargaining and representation for grievances and the like, and people who are not actually part of the teacher’s association still benefit,” explained Sen. Jim Mathias.

A 3.07:0/ 37

However, “fair share” policies have met with opposition particularly from Republican lawmakers, who maintain that employees should not have to pay for representation they may not want. Previously, Del. Mike McDermott said, individual counties have written service or representation fee provisions into teachers’ contracts if it was deemed necessary, but the state, he said, should not force the concession on every jurisdiction. “It’s been left to the locals to make up their own minds, and Worcester County has never done that [establish a service or representation fee],” McDermott said. “But now they’re being forced to do it.” McDermott said he was dismayed that two amendments to the bill had been rejected in the House. The first would require that counties only establish a service or representation fee if a

poll of employees reveals that 65 percent or more approve of it. The other, he said, would allow school boards to conduct audits of how the fees were being used, particularly apropos given charges recently brought against former WCTA Treasurer Denise Owens for embezzling money from the union. Still, the Senate version of the bill has added two important caveats that may lessen the bill’s impact. Firstly, county school boards will have the ability to negotiate with their teachers’ unions whether the fee will apply at all to current teachers or only to new hires. Secondly, another Senate amendment requires the service or representation fee to be ratified by a majority vote in a poll that includes both union members and those non-members who would be affected by the fee.].”

Beach patrol manpower needed to direct bathers limits expansion Continued from Page 1A

walk an extra half a block [around a surfing area] to get to the beach, but to somebody who’s paying ‘x’ amount for a room or a condo, it does,” said committee member Mike Foebler of the Princess Royale. The committee was formed this past November in response to concerns by local surfers that the city’s designated surf beaches were becoming overcrowded and driving surfers away from the resort. “I don’t ever go to the beaches in the summer anymore,” said Lee Gerachis of Malibu’s Surf Shop. “It’s life and death out there.” Proper surfboards, those with fins or those more than 54 inches long, are prohibited on city beaches from the hours of 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and specifically along Boardwalk-adjacent beaches from May 1 to Sept. 30. During those times, the city has a rotating surfing beach schedule that limits summer daytime surfboard use to two select blocks of beach, which change daily, as well as the southern half of the inlet beach on weekdays only. The Ocean City Beach Patrol also has the ability to declare a “modified” surf schedule if it is observed that surfing outside the two designated blocks would not present a problem due to a low concentration of bathers on the beach.

PHOTO COURTESY NICK DENNY

Surfers crowd the inlet surf area on a summer weekday. The city’s surf beach committee held its inaugural meeting this week, proposing a plan to relieve the pressure by allowing the Ocean City Beach Patrol to selectively widen the other surf beaches.

to amend the surf beach system last fall, presented the committee with the idea that the OCBP be given the latitude to “modify” surfing restrictions for select parts of the beach, or for specific hours, instead of lifting the entire restriction for the entire day. This would allow the OCBP to give surfers more leniency when and where needed. The problem with this, however, is that once beachgoers settle in, they typically don’t want to leave to make way for surfers. “We don’t want people surprised, we don’t want them to get established [and then change the system] … because then they become hostile,” Arbin said.

However, surfers say this is not enough, given the sport’s recent resurgence in popularity. But with the city’s last undeveloped oceanfront block being built up circa 1980, according to OCBP Captain Butch Arbin, the resort’s beach is now completely lined with hotel and condos whose operators expect the beach in front of their facilities to be available for tourists. Before this, Arbin said, the OCBP simply reserved unimproved blocks for surfers. But the last three decades have been a careful juggling act. Local firefighter and surfing enthusiast Mick Chester, who petitioned the city

Further, despite the promise of social media in notifying the public about changes, “by the time you got word out that surfing was modified, you’d want to un-modify it,” said OCBP Lt. Ward Kovacs. “As soon as you get word out, people start coming in from across the bridge.” Arbin said that the key to keeping peace on the beach has been the OCBP’s surf beach facilitators, whose major role is to notify beachgoers of the situation when they approach a surfing area. The facilitators also go to the next day’s surf beaches at the end of their shift to notify people there that the beach may not be available. This requires considerable manpower and Arbin said creating a system as Chester suggested would require even more to make it run smoothly. As an alternative, Kovacs proposed that the OCBP be given the latitude to instead expand any given surf beach by a half-block on either side, doubling its length, when conditions were good. This could be held in effect for the entire day, with little extra strain on the facilitators who are already stationed there. “If we look at the surf reports, and know [good surf] is coming, we can tell what’s going to happen,” Arbin said. “But the bigger the beach gets, the harder it is to get people out there greeting [bathers] and telling them about it.” See HALF-BLOCK on Page 9A

City Council approves Tasers; compensation costs still an issue ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Although it put to rest this week the immediate decision over whether to allow the purchase of eight new Tasers, the City Council will likely still face an uphill battle with the underlying issue of worker’s compensation claims and how to handle the cost in a tight budget season. Last week, the council delayed a decision to approve a budget change that would allow the Ocean City Police Department to use $11,400 in excess radio maintenance funds from its 2012-2013 budget allocation to buy eight more Electronic Control Devices (ECDs), popularly known by the Taser brand name. The purchase, according to OCPD Capt. Greg Guiton, would equip eight officers who are trained and certified to carry ECDs but have none to deploy. Purchasing the devices with surplus funds from the current year would maximize the department’s ECD availability going into the busy summer season. Since first piloting their use in October of 2011, Tasers have been reported by the OCPD to be highly effective in deterring aggressive or confrontational be-

havior in suspects and, when such behavior does occur, being able to subdue suspects with the least amount of physical force. According to a presentation earlier this year, recorded assaults on OCPD officers fell 25 percent in 2012 versus 2011, a drop that the department’s leadership attributes largely to ECD usage. The department has 26 Tasers and would need 22 more to be at full strength. But the council had questioned whether the OCPD’s surplus money for the current fiscal year couldn’t be rolled over into the next fiscal year, to help shore up the department’s operating expenses, which are projected to increase at a time when all of the city’s departments are facing a revenue crunch. Councilman Brent Ashley, in particular, asked whether Tasers were worth their weight given the fiscal situation. Although the devices are intended to reduce injuries and costly worker’s compensation claims sustained by officers, the OCPD’s worker’s compensation costs have actually been on the rise, Ashley said. This week, Guiton and city Risk Manager Eric Lagstrom presented the council with numbers that both validated the efSee DEVICES on Page 35A

Although the committee’s surfing representatives had interest in creating larger beaches, they generally agreed that eliminating any gray areas was best. “I’ve kind of changed my tune on the whole flexibility thing,” said Lee Gerachis of Malibu’s Surf Shop. “If it’s black and white, definitive, then there’s not room for discussion or argument.”

As a concession to the desire for more space, Chester further suggested that the OCBP add a third surf beach on weekends when the inlet is closed to surfing. This would require more man-hours – about 4,500, with roughly $50,000 in costs, Arbin said – but might be manageable. “Let’s look at it financially and see if the council would go for that schedule,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic.

Heroin abuse a rising concern in Worcester Ocean City police made 60 arrests in 2012 for heroin-related violations NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many years ago that heroin use was almost unheard of in this part of the Eastern Shore, and it was rarely an issue anywhere on the peninsula. But now, police reports routinely concern drug busts involving heroin and the perpetrators are frequently residents, not visitors or transients. It is, police say, a matter of price and availability to a population that is increasingly addicted to something. Pfc. Mike Levy of the Ocean City Police Department Public Affairs Office attributes the upswing in heroin usage to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;increased emphasis on prescription drug fraud and abuse.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have seen an increase in the amount of arrests for possession of heroin,â&#x20AC;? he said. During 2012, Ocean City police made 60 arrests for heroin-related drug violations. Although statistics for heroin-related arrests in 2011 were unavailable at press time, Levy said he could â&#x20AC;&#x153;say with certainty that the

number of heroin cases handled by the OCPD Narcotics Unit has substantially increased in 2012 over 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arrests for heroin for 2012 are up dramatically from years past,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153; We believe this is largely due to a crackdown in prescription fraud, which often results in prescription drug abuse. The increased use of heroin is due to the inability of the prescription drug abuser to obtain the commercial drugs illegally.â&#x20AC;? In the fall, the Ocean City Police Department initiated Operation Smackdown, a six-week investigation into the distribution of heroin because of its prevalence. It resulted in 72 arrests for heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs and marijuana, but most buys were for heroin. Police confiscated 110 bags of heroin, plus cocaine and five replica handguns. They found 63 bags of heroin in one car. Twenty-three of those bags were in a purse next to where Stephanie Orick, 24, of Hebron, had been sitting. Orick was charged with possession of heroin with the intent to distribute it. Her trial is scheduled for April 11. Heroin is also the drug of choice elsewhere in the northern end of the county. Crack and marijuana continue to be dominant in the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s southern end, although heroin-related ar-

rests have been made there as well. The use of heroin in the northern areas has â&#x20AC;&#x153;definitely increased over the last year or two,â&#x20AC;? said Sgt. Nate Passwaters, supervisor of the Criminal Enforcement Team, a division of the Worcester County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office that includes one Ocean City Police Department officer, one Pocomoke Police Department officer, two Maryland State Police troopers and four deputies. The division sometimes works with the Ocean City Police Department Narcotics Unit and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re busy,â&#x20AC;? Passwaters said. Although he did not have statistics available, Passwaters said at least 50 percent of the arrests made by the division during 2012 were heroin-related. Like Levy, Passwaters attributes the increased usage of heroin to increased enforcement targeting prescription drug abuse. During 2011, abuse of prescription pills and forged prescriptions to obtain those pills increased, so the Criminal Enforcement Team stepped up its efforts to combat those issues. By early 2012, the use of heroin increased and throughout that year, police saw a huge influx. Although there had always been some heroin abuse, Passwaters said, last year saw a 105 See SOME on Page 15A

Saturday ceremony celebrates new outdoor facility LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 5, 2013) The new outdoor exercise and fitness area at Northside Park on 127th Street will officially be unveiled during a grand-opening event and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday. West Recreation of Queenstown, Md. began building the

bayside fitness area in late fall, and it was completed in November 2012, according to Tom Shuster, director of the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. A $119,000 grant awarded to the town in June by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ Community Parks & Playgrounds Program funded the project. “We wanted to wait until the

weather was nicer to introduce people to the facility,” Shuster said. “From the time the equipment was first put in, people have been out there trying it. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback.” The exercise equipment, manufactured by TriActive America, is covered by a blue fabric shade structure to provide protection from the elements. The nine pieces of equipment include an

Outdoor area features equip. similar to indoor gyms elliptical cross trainer, pull-up and dip station, double leg press, seated lat pull, sit-up board, Air Walker, back extension, rowing machine and seated chest press. “They’re comparable to the kinds of equipment in a public indoor gym or private health club,” Shuster said. “The equipment utilizes all different muscle groups of the body. Most are based on body resistance weight.” A large pad provides a surface for stretching and floor exercises, and is large enough for small classes. The fitness area will be open year round. There is no cost to use the equipment. “It’s an additional enhance-

ment to the park, which is already used by a lot of people,” Shuster said. “We know by current usage that people come to the park to do various kinds of activities.” Shuster said the outdoor exercise and fitness area was constructed next to the park’s recently renovated ADA-accessible playground so adults can keep an eye on their little ones while they use the equipment. The recreation and parks department has an initiative to improve community health and wellness. “Get Active. Be Healthy. Have Fun!” is the slogan of the initiative. The objective is to enhance and expand its programs

and facilities to encourage physical activity and promote healthy lifestyles, while having fun. Saturday’s grand-opening festivities will kick off at 10:30 a.m. with a Family Fun Walk, sponsored by the Worcester County Health Department. A ribboncutting ceremony will take place at 11 a.m, followed by equipment and class demonstrations. There will also be music and opportunities to win prizes.

OC spring cleanup, yard sale set for April 13-14 (April 5, 2013) The Town of Ocean City is once again offering residential property owners the opportunity to do their springcleaning by offering free residential bulk pick-up on Saturday and Sunday, April 13-14.

14 pick-up from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. While the city is providing this service free for the cleanup, the cost for bulk pickup otherwise is $15 per item, $25 for up to three items and $5 for each additional item. There will also be an amnesty program to collect fireworks, old ammunition and old weapons that residents may have in their household and need to be removed. For more information, call Solid Waste at 410-524-0318. Meanwhile, Ocean City’s 12th annual community yard sale will be held 7 a.m.noon on Saturday, April 13 in the parking lot at Northside Park on 125th Street in front of the Community Center.

Tow signage changes in Md. (April 5, 2013) On Oct. 1, 2012, the state of Maryland enacted a new law with regards to towing of vehicles. This law affects the person or business that has a vehicle towed, as well as the tow company. Tow sign owners are required to return their old sign and purchase a new tow sign and municipal tow sticker, which is to be placed on the right corner. Tow sign owners must select one tow company who will be called directly to tow vehicles and there must be one sign for every 7,500 square feet of parking space in the parking lot. Also, the tow company’s name must be provided on the sign, opposite the valid municipal tow sticker. Upon a tow violation, the person or business towing the vehicle will call the tow company direct and no longer call the Ocean City Police Department or Ocean City communications to have the vehicle towed. In addition, tow companies are required to have stickers made with their tow company name. The tow company will give these stickers to the person/business that has an agreement with them to tow vehicles from their lot. Tow companies will not be allowed to tow from a property that does not display their sticker. The Town of Ocean City will be providing new tow signs and stickers at City Hall. Those interested in obtaining a new tow sign or sticker can visit the Billing and Collections Department, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 410289-8861.

Some dealers go to Philadelphia to buy large quantities of drugs Continued from Page 11A

percent to 110 percent uptake in the abuse. The increased enforcement was just one of the reasons for that increase, Passwaters said. Forging prescriptions is a big risk and cost is a factor. “It’s cheaper,” he said of heroin. Some people begin using the drug by snorting it and progress to injecting it intravenously, while the frequency of usage increases. A bag or envelope containing onetenth of a gram of heroin might cost $20. Some people use one or two bags per day, but others might use 10 or 15 bags of heroin per day. “It depends of their tolerance,” he said. Some drug dealers go to Philadelphia where they buy huge quantities of the drug. They purchase bundles of heroin, usually with 10 to 13 bags to a bundle, for $60 to $80 per bundle. After bringing to Ocean City, they sell it for $20 per bag and they make a substantial profit. The Criminal Enforcement Team focuses on the bigger distributors, such as Leck M. Lyons of Ocean Pines, Passwaters said. Lyons, 38, “was the biggest distributor of heroin in this area for the longest time,” he said. Lyons is now facing up to 20 years in prison for possession of a large amount of heroin. He pleaded guilty March 5 to the crime and is scheduled to be sentenced April 29. He 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. Lyons was arrested Oct. 19, 2012, after police stopped his vehicle on Route 113 at Bishopville Road. During a search of the vehicle, police found 1,678 individually wrapped bags of heroin, with an approximate street

value of $41,950. Another area man, Tony Lamont Mills, 32, of Berlin, had a lengthy criminal history when he faced federal charges following his arrest Aug. 31, 2012 after the Criminal Enforcement Team, with assistance of the Berlin Police Department SWAT Team, executed a search and seizure warrant at his Berlin residence and found six bags of heroin, marijuana and a loaded .32 caliber revolver. At the time of his arrest, he was on probation for distribution of crack cocaine. He had been sentenced Aug. 10, 2010 to 15 years in prison with all but five years suspended. He was facing a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison for possession of heroin with intent to distribute and up to life in prison for being a

felon in possession of firearm. Mills had his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Feb. 13. He died March 3. Joseph Tyler Shanahan, 25, of Berlin was another person arrested by the Criminal Enforcement Team and charged with possession of heroin with the intent to distribute it and possession of heroine with the intent to distribute it in a school zone because his residence is near Buckingham Elementary School. At his West Street residence, police confiscated 99 individually wrapped bags of heroin and 987 grams, or 2.17 pounds, of marijuana. His trial is scheduled for May 13. Many people found guilty of drugrelated crimes are ordered to undergo drug and alcohol testing and evalua-

tion by a probation agent, who may require them to have treatment. That treatment is provided by the Worcester County Health Department. During fiscal year 2012, the health department had 224 admissions for treatment of opiate abuse, said Doris Moxley, the department’s addictions director. Of those admissions, 96 were because of heroin. Although most patients are treated at the health department because they are ordered to be there, anyone with a drug, including alcohol, problem or a mental health problem may seek help, which is offered in West Ocean City, Snow Hill and Pocomoke by calling 410-632-1100. The health department accepts insurance plans and has a sliding fee scale for those with limited incomes.

An Ocean City police officer arrested Steven George Hopkins on a 2009 warrant from Wicomico County for possession of marijuana after he saw him acting suspiciously in north Ocean City. A search after that arrest revealed a used package of suboxone sublingual strips. According to the charging document, suboxone is a powerful prescription pain medicine that is commonly abused. Hopkins reportedly told the police officer that he did not have a prescription for the drug.

Additional school safety measures approved NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Worcester County public schools will have additional safety features in place when they re-open for the next school year, following the Worcester County Commissioners’ approval Tuesday of four capital projects. “Society is changing every day and we need to take some protective action,” said Bud Church, president of the commissioners. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson asked for funding for six projects totaling an estimated $218,425, but the commissioners approved only four of them. They voted in favor of the purchase and installation of 14 electronic buzzer entry systems that would include a cam-

era and two-way speaker system to help identify visitors at a cost of $65,000 and the purchase and installation of nine cardwiping entry systems for exterior doors leading from portable classrooms to the school building at a cost of $63,000. They also approved the purchase and installation of an additional eight security cameras for a cost of $25,000 and the purchase and installation of 15 standardized visitor identification systems that will produce photo badges and provide sex offender background checks at a cost of $20,425 for the first year and $5,000 for each year thereafter. All of the costs, Wilson said, are estimates. Not getting the thumbs up from the commissioners were the purchase and installation of six over-sized flowerpots or bollards to be placed outside schools to

prevent a vehicle from driving through the main entrance doors. That had an estimated price tag of $20,000. The commissioners also nixed the purchase and installation of window blinds or tinting for windows providing an unobstructed view into a classroom from adjacent parking lots and roads. The estimated price of $25,000 would be for blinds or tinting at four schools. Wilson wanted the commissioners to approve all of the proposed projects and said more than once that the request “was a board-approved plan” made after a study by a safety committee. The commissioners did not let that sway them. “It’s our job to look at it too,” Commissioner Madison Bunting said. The approved capital projects will cost See BUDGET on Page 22A

Second budget sessions, April 9 NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners will hold their second budget session with department heads on Tuesday, April 9. They are scheduled to hear budget requests from Circuit Court Judge Thomas C. Groton III, State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby, Fire Marshal Jeff McMahon, Emergency Services Director Teresa Owens, Tourism Director Lisa Challenger, Liquor Control Director Robert Cowger, Health Officer Debbie Goeller, Library Director Mark Thomas and Rob Hart of the Commission on Aging. Last Tuesday afternoon, the commissioners heard requests for fiscal year 2014 budgets for Economic Development, the Elections Board and the county jail. Keeping a tight rein on expenses, Economic Development Director Bill Badger asked for an increase of just $3,337 in his fiscal year 2014 budget of $578,059. In that department, Badger estimates maintenance and services will increase from $33,400 to $49,000, an increase of $15,600 or 46.7 percent. Supplies and materials, however, are expected to decrease $11,210 or 3.2 percent from $350,050 to $338,840 and personnel services are expected to drop $5,000 or 2.7 percent from $183,219 to $178,219. Among his other tasks, Badger and Deputy Director Meredith Mears are responsible for encouraging businesses to locate, remain or expand in the county and to provide a wide range of assistance to business owners and entrepreneurs. For the county jail, Warden Gerry Mumford requested $7.98 million, an increase of $16,290 or just .2 percent more than the current $7.96 million. Personnel services are expected to decrease from $5.14 million to $5.1 million, a decrease of $37,150 or .7 percent. Supplies and materials would have a slight increase of $30,000 or 2.7 percent from $1.12 million to $1.15 million. Maintenance and services are expected to increase slightly from $1.68 million to $1.71 million. The jail confines people sentenced by the courts, those held in a pre-trial status who are financially unable to post bond and those who are held without bond. In 2012, the jail processed 2,848 inmates through its intake system. Patti Jackson, director of the Board of Elections, asked for $715,382, or $26,465 less than the current budget of $741,847, for fiscal year 2014. Although there is an increase of $41,054, from $245,926 to $286,980, for supplies and materials, there is a decrease of $89,704 in the capital equipment category, reducing it to zero.

Mosquito spraying to begin in Worcester Co. SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (April 5, 2013) The Department of Agriculture’s mosquito control officials are now waiting for the right wind and weather conditions to begin aerial spraying of mosquito larvicide in the annual effort to keep the 60 species of bloodsuckers that populate Worcester County under control. David Schofield, assistant chief for the department’s Mosquito Control Section said in a March 28 press release, “In Worcester County, approximately 1,000 acres of woodland areas in the vicinity of Turville Creek and Sinepuxent Neck will be treated.” The aerial application will occur during

daylight hours and the areas will be treated with the biological larvicide Vectobac 12 AS, bacillus thuringiensis, it said. According to the statement, the aircraft that will be conducting the aerial spraying will be a white twin engine with red and blue stripes, with the reg-

istration number N903MD. During an April 2 interview, Schofield said spraying standing pools of water in the local woodlands is conducted every spring before the trees begin sprouting leaves that would act as a natural canopy preventing the chemicals from reaching the ground below. He said that due to the amount of rain the area has experienced so far, there has been a lot of standing water in the woodlands that is not drying as quickly as it has in past years. Spraying is expected to begin either this week or next, depending on the weather, Schofield said. The conditions must be low to no wind, no rain and temperatures between 50-60-deSee SPRAYING on Page 22A

Times are a’ changing, and not for the better It’s a sad time indeed when one of the dominant issues before local officials is preventing students from K through 12 from being shot. But because of mass shootings elsewhere in the country, virtually every school system across the nation is considering or has considered how best to keep bad people out and, should that fail, to do their best to kill them instead. Whether you agree or don’t agree with the gun control arguments playing out in state and federal governments, no one in his or her right mind can say that having armed guards in schools is a positive development in the field of education. Hopefully, students will become used to the presence of security personnel over time, but it has to play on the their minds, as well as the minds of teachers, staff and administrators, that going to school has apparently become a dangerous business. That’s not exactly conducive to creating a learning atmosphere, unless it is to teach children that you just can’t trust anyone these days. Unfortunately, that could be true and, for whatever reason, we’re victims of a society that is running seriously off course. Worse, while we take whatever steps we feel are required to counter this terrifying circumstance, we can only wonder why it’s happening and what we would do about it should we find the cause or causes of this insanity. In the meantime, our schools are being turned into small fortresses where children will be exposed to not just reading, writing and arithmetic, but to lock and load as well. It’s a sorry commentary on the times we live in and, worse, we seem to lack the ability or the knowledge to do anything about it.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has announced that this year’s minimum size for summer flounder is being lowered from last year to 16 inches, which means for me that I will have the privilege through the next several months of not catching even smaller fish. Fishing success is, after all, a matter of perspective, and in that regard I did well last year not catching legal fish that were, courtesy of that season’s size-limit reduction, slightly smaller than they were the year before. Admittedly, that last sentence is confusing, but the situation is this: the laws of physics and nature dictate that the minimum size of a keeper fish will be oneeighth of an inch longer than whatever I catch. This is how it works. Fisheries conservation officials hold a number of meetings during the winter to ascertain what size of fish I am likely to see during my hundred or so trips out on the water. After establishing that number, they add one-eighth of inch to that to determine the minimum size for the year.

By Stewart Dobson I also suspect that scientists at the Atlantic Marine Fisheries Commission and the Maryland DNR base their estimates of the fish landings according to what I won’t do. “Whatever the projected catch totals are this year, deduct 200 for Dobson, since our computer model forecasts that he will do diddly squat.” This year, obviously, they have booked me for even less than diddly-squat in the keeper fish department, thus resulting in an even smaller keeper size for every-

one else. Because of the central role I play in these calculations, anglers should thank me for my contribution, or lack thereof, to the fishing equation. Another benefit that I provide fishing folks is that the keeper fish they land perform better because of me, having undergone intensive training as smaller fish that I have caught and released. In other words, my interaction with fish gives them time to practice their routines before they grow up. I don’t know why my fishing circumstance is thus, considering that I use the same approach, the same gear and the same methods, and I go to the same places as everyone else. And I go in the same boat with people who do catch keeper fish, while I do not. I’m uncertain about the reason, but it could be that when we drift into a school of fish that its CEO, president or the duly appointed leader will look up, recognize me, and tell the others, “If you want to live, follow me to his side of the boat.

OC council questions proposed long-distance swimming event ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) The City Council continued this week with a recent trend toward being less permissive with new special events, especially those that seek already-congested times of year and require considerable logistical support from government itself. The Swim OC long-distance swimming competition was remanded to the Parks and Recreation Commission for more clarification on the event’s needs, and city staff’s concerns about them, after concerns over the strain it would place on the Ocean City Beach Patrol. The proposed event would involve one-, three-, and nine-mile swimming courses along the coast of the resort, roughly 100 yards offshore, with an estimated 250 participants. The event would benefit brain trauma research and was proposed to be scheduled for July 20. The event’s organizers, Corey Davis, Dave Speier, and Traci McNeil, are currently in their sixth year of the Nanticoke River Swim, a similar event, without accident or injury. “It’s a good group of people to have in town,” Speier said. However, the event would need con-

siderable support from the OCBP to monitor the swimmers, with an estimated extra manpower cost of $1,800. Written comments submitted to the council by the Public Works Department also stressed the impossibility of beach access for vehicles, or to reserving of space at the inlet parking lot, given the congestion of a July weekend. “July 20 is the peak of our season,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. “You’re making a lot of requests of the city’s Beach Patrol [and] of our EMS. To suggest that we bring on an extra EMT and extra lifeguards to monitor this swim or 250 people … [the OCBP] has 250,000 people on the beach already that they need to monitor.” Council President Lloyd Martin suggested that a September date may be better, given that the resort will be less

congested, lodging will be cheaper and the water will actually retain more of its warmth from the late summer. However, OCBP Captain Butch Arbin said, “The issues with September are [rougher] surf conditions and that our numbers are way down.” “The July 20 date, although it is in the middle of the season, is when we’re at our maximum force,” Arbin said. “July 20 was the one date in mid-season where we didn’t have anything going on Beach Patrol-wise.” Arbin said he had no problems with the event’s setup “from the point of safety.” OCBP personnel would be using Jet Skis and paddleboards to monitor the swim route, as well as have observers on ATVs on the beach. Arbin was also confident that his input on the event’s qual-

ifying standards would ensure that the swimmers were competent enough to stave off exhaustion or hypothermia. “We’re already guarding 250,000 people, an extra 250 excellent swimmers isn’t going to make much of a difference,” Arbin said. Still, the exact size of the commitment from the city’s end for a relatively small event was an issue. “We’re not saying no, we’d just like more information,” said Council Secretary Mary Knight. “It truly is a worthy cause.” Council members Brent Ashley and Margaret Pillas voted for the event’s approval, but the motion failed. Pillas then supported a motion to move the issue to the Parks and Recreation Committee. “At least you’ll have a chance to work it out,” she said.

Pocomoke man wins stamp design contest (April 5, 2013) Paul Makuchal of Pocomoke won the 39th annual Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp Design Contest with his painting of a Lesser Scaup, titled “Peaceful Swim.” “It’s a wonderful surprise to learn my artwork was this year’s winning entry,” Makuchal said. A panel of judges selected Makuchal’s work out of 21 entries from 11 Maryland artists. They judged the entries before a crowd on March 24, at the 24th Patuxent Wildlife Art Show, held at the National Wildlife Visitors Center in Laurel, Md. The contest is the fourth oldest in the country and is restricted to Maryland residents. Makuchal is now a two-time Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp Contest winner. In 1998, at the age of 21, he won his first Maryland title with a painting of a pair of pintails, and again in 2006, with his Canada goose entry. At 17, he placed third in the Junior Federal Duck Stamp Contest.

Spraying to kill adult mosquitoes will follow Continued from Page 18A

grees-farenheit. The aircraft is being used for the applications intended to kill mosquito larvae in an area of 600-700 acres in the county. Specifically, he said the aerial spraying would occur in the woods along Route 611 between Buck’s Store and the Ocean City Golf Club, and along Turville Creek, Gumpoint Road, to the southeast corner of Ocean Pines. Subsequent spraying, to kill adult mosquitoes, will follow on a weekly basis, but will not done by airplane, according to Schofield. The adult insecticide will be applied by ultra-low volume trucks, which disperse the contact insecticide out the back of the unit. The contact insecticide will be applied in Berlin, Ocean Pines, Pocomoke and Snow Hill, he said. The weekly spraying can be in-

creased to twice weekly if a disease situation occurs or at the request of a municipality. Schofield said the chemicals that will be used were chosen because they were the safest for potentially populated areas approved by the state and the Environmental Protection Agency. But not the entire mosquito battling arsenal is chemical. Schofield said the department also stocks guppy-sized gambusia holbrooki fish that can be transplanted into woodland pools to eat the larvae. He also said mosquito populations are monitored with the assistance of what has to be some pretty brave humans. According to Schofield, mosquito technicians take “landing rate counts” by standing in a monitoring area and literally counting the number of mos-

quitoes that land on them over a one to two-minute period. He said the number can be as high as 100. The Berlin Town Council asked for four additional spray applications in 2012, a town official said. During its March 25 meeting, the council approved a $6,000 allocation to MDA for the annual cost of mosquito control for 2013. Truck spraying normally occurs during the early morning hours on Fridays, throughout Berlin and its annexed areas, the official said. The specific areas would include Stephen Decatur Park, town limit at bottle branch, Stephen Decatur High School, Flower Street, Main Street, Henry’s Mill, Franklin Knoll, Buckingham Lane, a portion of Germantown Road, and Bottle Branch near the wastewater treatment plant.

Budget includes $25M for security Continued from Page 16A

$173,000, with half of that amount to be reimbursed by the state. The state’s proposed fiscal year 2014 budget includes $25 million for security projects at schools. Based on preliminary information, Worcester County’s public schools would be allocated $217,000, but that is not a certainty. “I think the state will find the funds,” Wilson said. “There’s a high degree of probability that the money will be matched by the state.” Wilson said he did not know what the state would do with funds that are not requested and he wanted all of the requested items approved. Commissioner Louise Gulyas cast the sole opposing vote. “It’s all about education with me,” she said. Gulyas also said she had received many calls from parents who are opposed to the proposal to have armed law enforcement officers in the schools. Bunting said he had received seven or eight calls from people voicing similar sentiments and Church said he had received one call saying the commissioners’ plans for increased safety were a “knee-jerk reaction.”

Healthier lifestyles promoted during fourth annual conference Wor. health department encourages residents to ‘get up and get moving’ NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Get up and get moving for a healthier lifestyle, members of the audience were told at the fourth annual Public Health Conference held by the Worcester County Health Department on Wednesday. The Health Department wants all residents to lead a healthier lifestyle and the county has been taking steps to assist its employees in that regard. The county’s health assessment of its employees, which number more than 700, including more than 200 parttimers, led to worksite wellness programs last year that incorporated information about heart-healthy eating habits, breast cancer awareness, an introduction to yoga and a “biggest loser” contest with employees at the county jail. “People are interested in getting healthy,” Cyndy Howell, the county’s volunteer coordinator, said during the conference at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau. “The county commissioners totally endorse the programs.” Participants in the wellness program

reported weight loss, a 27 percent increase in the consumption of fruits and vegetables and a 33 percent increase in daily physical activities. The county benefited by having healthier employees and lower insurance costs. The program will continue next year and is expected to include smoking cessation aid. For several years, the county has promoted a self-directed program for improved health. In 1995, it started the “Just Walk Worcester” program, modeled after New York’s “Walk for Life” program, because of the prevalence of a sedentary lifestyle. Since then, 3,637 members have walked 145,000 miles, said Mimi Dean, the health department’s coordinator for chronic disease and tobacco. Participants can earn prizes, includ-

ing sweatshirts, pedometers, lunch bags and T-shirts, based on the number of miles walked. People may obtain additional information about Just Walk Worcester by calling the health department’s Prevention Services at 410-6320056 or by visiting www.worcesterhealth.org. Berlin Deputy Town Administrator Mary Bohlen also talked about that town’s efforts to promote healthier lifestyles. The town obtained a grant in 2008 for a scrap tire path at Stephen Decatur Park. The following year, the town installed fitness stations along it. Other communities have expressed interest in having a similar scrap tire path, but the grant Berlin obtained is no longer available, she said. In November 2012, the town had an

event, “Just Walk Berlin,” to increase awareness of the benefits of walking in Berlin, Bohlen said. Walking, she said, was one of the “easiest, least expensive activities.” Lisa Gebhart, recreation superintendent at the county’s Department of Recreation and Parks, said that department wanted more children to participate in its activities. When some of the department’s employees went to an elementary school to ask students why they did not participate, they learned that cost was the factor. Since then, the department offers reduced fees, as low as $5 and $10, for program fees for students that qualify for free or reduced-price lunches at school. For more information about that program, people may call the health department at 410-632-2144.

Maryland delegates clear gun bill for final round of action County representatives, Mathias, McDermott and Conway vote against bill SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (April 5, 2013) The Maryland House of Delegates on April 3 voted 78 to 61 to approve the “Firearm Safety Act with amendments, clearing the way for lawmakers in the Senate to decide to either accept the House’s amended version or to reconcile differences between the House and Senate through a conference committee. Any bill that emerged from the conference committee would also have to be approved by both the House and Senate before the General Assembly adjourns on April 8. Worcester County representatives, including Sen. James Mathias (D-38), Delegate Norman Conway (D-38B) and Delegate Michael McDermott (R-38B), all voted against the bill, which will possibly give the state one of the toughest gun laws in the country. The Senate approved a final reading of its similar proposal on Feb. 28, by a vote of 28-19 and is expected to sign off on the House version as well. McDermott, a fierce critic of the legislation, offered amendment after amendment to many of the bill’s restrictions up to the final vote. At one point, he issued a

statement that blasted the proposal, but pointed out that as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, to which most of the provisions in the bill were referred, he took the opportunity to amend it where possible. Provisions of the bill that deal with mental health issues were referred to the House Health and Government Operations Committee. McDermott has said he strongly believes the bill is “a major infringement on Marylanders’ Second Amendment Rights.” Three of McDermott’s amendments had been adopted by the joint House committee, including proposals to: ■ Exempt the Maryland Defense Force from many aspects of the bill. ■ Allow anyone 18 years or older and serving in the armed forces or National Guard to purchase regulated firearms, ■ Protect individuals with physical disabilities from needing to go through a special board to get approval for the handgun qualification license. ■ Clarify that a person may obtain a regulated firearm through inheritance. But several of the amendments drew fire from the bill’s proponents when the legislation came to the full House. Some were either eliminated or changed. In the end, the bill passed the House primarily with the votes of delegates from Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, and Baltimore City.

In other legislative business, a bill by Sen. Mathias (SB 949) that would modify the rules on how beer, wine and liquor are sold in Worcester County is now in the House and has been referred to the House Economic Matters Committee. It was previously incorrectly reported here that the bill was unanimously approved by the Senate on March 22. But that report should have read that it had been unanimously approved by the Senate Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee on March 22. The full Senate did, however, approve the final version of the bill on March 29, by a vote of 47-0. A similar bill, HB 999, has been approved by the House on third reading by a vote of 137-0 on March 25. It was favorably reported out of the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee April 4. HB 999 was sponsored by McDermott, as chairman of the Worcester County Delegation and while it is similar to the Mathias proposal, the two are not companion bills. The Senate also approved (47-0) and returned to the House the final version of HB 9 on April 3. The proposal would require restaurants to post information on food allergies on signs in staff areas and on menus by Jan. 1, 2014. It would also mandate food allergy awareness training for certain restaurant personnel and designate the second week in May as “Food

Allergy Awareness Week.” The House passed final approval of the bill on March 28, by a 134-1 vote. The Senate approved a HB 753, which would make driving while using a handheld communication device a primary driving violation. The 41-6 vote on the proposal was approved with amendments. The measure previously cleared the House on March 21 after a final vote of 106-29. The state budget bill for fiscal year 2014, HB 100, was assigned to a Senate conference committee on March 25 and is under review. Meanwhile, the Maryland Consolidated Capital Bond Loan bill (HB 101), which authorizes $1.1 billion in general obligation bonds, was approved by the Senate with amendments, by a vote of 460 on April 3. It was approved by the House on March 28 by a final vote of 10136. It referred to a conference committee April 4. The bond proposal includes two local requests, sponsored by Conway and Mathias. The bond requests included $200,000 to fund an expansion of the Diakonia housing program in Worcester County and $250,000 for the YMCA of the Chesapeake in Wicomico County. According to a legislative explanation, approval of HB 101, the bond bill, cannot supersede HB 100, the budget bill.

Maryland bills renamed in memory of Sheddy, Bennett NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Bills to increase the penalty for being an accessory after a murder have passed in the House of Delegates and the Senate. Both bills, introduced by Delegate Mike McDermott and Sen. Norman Stone, increase the penalty for being an accessory after the fact of first- or seconddegree murder from five years to 10 years. The bills would have increased the penalty for being an accessory after the fact to firstdegree murder from five to 20 years, but amendments changed it to 10 years. Sen. Stones bill, SB444, passed in the Senate by a 47-0 vote on March 21 and was scheduled to have a first reading in the House Judiciary Committee on April 2. Delegate McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill passed in the House of Delegates by a 136-0 vote on March 7 and had its first reading in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee

on March 8. The bills must pass in both chambers in order to make it to the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desk. Earlier this month, both bills were renamed the Sheddy-Bennett Act in memory of Christine Sheddy and Whitney Bennett. Sheddy was murdered near Pocomoke in 2007 and her body was undiscovered until 2009. She had been buried in the yard of a bed and breakfast in Snow Hill. One of her murderers is serving life in prison without parole and the other is serving a sentence of life with all suspended but 30 years. The woman who drove her car, with her children inside and Sheddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body in the trunk, from Pocomoke to Snow Hill is serving a five-year prison sentence for being an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder. Bennett was murdered in Wicomico County in 2010. The man convicted of being an accessory after the fact to that murder was also sentenced to five years in prison.

WORCESTER COUNTY BRIEFS

Proclamations

Vehicle repairs

Housing rehab

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

The commissioners presented a proclamation to Roberta Baldwin, deputy director of the Department of Social Services, in recognition of April as National Child Abuse Awareness Month. They also presented a proclamation to Jo Ellen Bynum, administrator of the Worcester County Housing Rehabilitation Program, in recognition of April as Fair Housing Month.

The commissioners approved the sale of three vehicles, a 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 van, a 1998 Dodge Neon and a 2006 Ford Expedition because the costs to repair them were so high. They considered selling a 2000 Jeep Cherokee, but decided to keep it because its repair cost was reasonable.

The commissioners accepted the bids of two companies, Art Killmon Construction of Pocomoke and Shoreman Construction of Delmar, for the demolition of three singlefamily homes and subsequent construction of three replacement homes on the same lots. Two of the projects are in the Berlin area and one project is in the Bishopville area. Shoreman Construction bid $95,050 for one Berlin area project and $97,150 for the Bishopville area project. Art Kilmon Construction bid $99,432 for the other Berlin area project.

(April 5, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during the Tuesday, April 2, meeting.

Mountain bike trail The commissioners approved the request of Recreation and Parks Director Paige Hurley for a memorandum of understanding between the county and the Eastern Shore International Mountain Bicycling Association for a mountain bike trail at Newtown Park in Pocomoke. “Worcester County is an ideal location for cyclists,” Hurley said. The one-mile trail, which will accommodate beginning to intermediate riders, will be provided as a service to the county by association volunteers. The county will provide a kiosk.

Auction items

Pier repairs The commissioners approved construction documents for repairs to the Public Landing pier, which was severely damaged during Hurricane Sandy in late October. The Local Government Insurance Trust is covering the damage as an insurance claim. The damaged pier will not be usable for the spring and early summer months. It is closed and is unsafe for pedestrian use. Public Works Director John Tustin said the construction is a priority project.

The commissioners approved the auction of 15 vehicles and several miscellaneous items on GovDeals.com, an online auction site that the county has used numerous times. They withheld two vehicles from the auction because they want additional information about them and whether they can be repaired.

Vehicles transferred The commissioners voted to dispose of one 2002 and one 2003 Ford Supreme buses by declaring them as surplus and conveying the titles to the Tri-County Council for retirement by Shore Transit. One bus has 415,173 miles on it and the other has 446,986 miles on it. When Shore Transit was created, Worcester County leased its fleet and Shore Transit used them to provide services across the Tri-County area. Because of the age and mileage, TriCounty Council expects to retire the vehicles. The Maryland Transportation Administration recommended that since the county had likely fully depreciated the vehicles, this would be a good time to transfer the title to Shore Transit.

Critical Area grant The commissioners approved the fiscal year 2014 Critical Area grant agreement. The grant award is $13,000, down $1,000 from the fiscal year 2013 grant. The fund reimburses the county for a very small portion of the work done by the Department of Development Review and Permitting on a daily basis to administer both the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Critical Area Programs.

Bids for roof The commissioners approved bid specifications for replacing the asphalt-shingled roof at the Worcester County Courthouse in Snow Hill. Bids are due in the office of the county commissioners by 1 p.m. Monday, April 29.

Trolleys could transport visitors around OC-Berlin-Pines areas NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Tourism Director Lisa Challenger was advised Tuesday to play the slot machines to get money for a visitors’ trolley. “Go back to Ocean Downs and put a dollar in the machine,” said Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners. “I hope you win $50.” The Casino at Ocean Downs, Challenger said, was interested in the TriCounty Council’s proposed plan to have two trolleys transport visitors to and from places in West Ocean City, Berlin, Assateague Island, Ocean Pines and points in between. “They would sort of make one big loop,” Challenger said. Casino representatives had been looking into the possibility of having its own shuttle bus service and had put money aside for it, she said. Two businesses, Frontier Town on Route 611 and the Francis Scott Key Motel on Route 50 in West Ocean City, already have their own shuttle buses and would keep those in addition to participating in the new trolley venture. The trolleys would operate from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day

weekend with a total operating cost estimated at $140,000. On behalf of the Tri-County Council, Challenger asked for $10,000 to help launch the new endeavor, which is endorsed by the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Berlin and many area businesses, including the Casino at Ocean Downs, she said. Additional funding would be sought from local businesses and governments that would benefit from the service. Because the commissioners will not adopt a budget until June 4, they did not want to commit funds for the trolley project at this time. Brad Bellacio of the Tri-County Council said the trolleys would be purchased from the Town of Ocean City, which approached the Tri-County Council’s Shore Transit division in early February with an offer to sell them. The concept, he said, “is to help move people around.” A similar program using four surplus trolleys is in Annapolis. The trolleys’ outer shell makes them look like an old-fashioned trolley. According to the Tri-County Council, the trolleys are in good condition and suitable for use for special events or special service routes to enhance the expeSee TRI-COUNTY on Page 29A

Worcester County’s new mega liquor mart slated to open May1 West OC Liquor Mart will close when Shore Spirits opens; Berlin site remains NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) The county’s new liquor dispensary on Route 50 is expected to open in just a few weeks. “We’re hoping for May 1,” Robert Cowger, director of the Worcester County Department of Liquor Control, said Monday. The new store, approximately a quarter-mile east of Seahawk Road, will have a more noticeable presence than either the Berlin Liquor Mart, located in a Route 346 shopping center near Save-ALot grocery store, or the West Ocean City Liquor Mart, located not far from the Route 50 bridge. The West Ocean City Liquor Mart will close when the new store opens, but the Berlin Liquor Mart will remain open, though it might be temporary. Cowger said he would consider the effect the new store has on the existing Berlin store before making a final decision. “If [the existing store] stays fairly busy, we’d like to have it open,” Cowger said.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

The new Shore Spirits store on Route 50 just outside the town limits of Berlin is expected to open within one month. The new store will mean the closing of the West Ocean City Liquor Mart. The Berlin Liquor Mart, on the other hand, will remain open, though it might be temporary.

During the Worcester County Commissioners’ March 5 meeting, when municipal leaders made their annual requests for funds, Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said he was concerned that the town would no longer receive funds from sales of liquor at the county Liquor Mart because it would be closed after the new dispensary opens. Like other municipalities, Berlin receives a share of the profits from the county liquor dispensary within its town limits. Williams said the town has been

receiving approximately $100,000 per year. “To go from that to nothing is hard to swallow,” Williams said. Though Cowger said he’s willing to keep the store open if sales are high enough, he does not think it is likely to happen. “People will want to go to the new store,” he said. Part of the new store’s inventory will come from existing West Ocean City Liquor Mart. Shelves from that store will

also be used in the new store. Although some West Ocean City residents have said they do not want to drive to the new store to buy their liquor, Cowger expects them to change their minds. “It’s only three-and-a-half miles down the road for a much nicer facility,” he said. To staff the new store, a couple of new part-time employees will be hired. Typically, the Department of Liquor Control, formerly known as the Liquor Control See BERLIN on Page 29A

Berlin staff will be Route 50 roadwork on tap next week in Berlin transferred if store closes, Cowger says Continued from Page 28A

Board, hires approximately 14 summer employees. If the Berlin store closes, the employees working there would be transferred to the new store. “No full-time employees will lose their jobs,” Cowger said. The Department of Liquor Control now pays $45,575 annually to lease the West Ocean City store, which has 3,200 square feet of space, and $20,843 for the Berlin space, which has 1,500 square feet. The new store will have 4,800 square feet of space and “a huge wine selection.” The county will pay an annual lease of $84,000 for the new store, which will also be used as a wholesale outlet. Increased sales volume would generate sufficient profits to pay the higher lease. Leases for both the Berlin and West Ocean City dispensaries expired in December, Cowger said. They would have to be renegotiated if the commissioners did not approve the construction of the new store, which they did in February. They also voted to change the name of the store from Liquor Mart to Shore Spirits.

(April 5, 2013) Next week, the Maryland State Highway Administration will begin a seven-mile project to improve the ride quality for motorists in Berlin. SHA will resurface westbound Route 50 between Main Street (MD 818) and the Wicomico County line (Pocomoke River). Weather permitting, motorists will be riding on a new road surface by early summer. “SHA has been resurfacing U.S. 50 in large sections over the past several years to provide a smoother and safer commute to thousands of motorists,” said

SHA District Engineer Donnie Drewer. “We urge patience as crews will be working hard to complete this project as soon as possible. For everyone’s safety, please pay extra attention when approaching the work zone and be sure to slow down — there is no room for driver error in roadway work zones.” In addition to resurfacing westbound U.S. 50, SHA will patch damaged sections of pavement and restripe the highway. SHA awarded the $2.5 million project to American Infrastructure of Fallston. The last time this section of westbound

U.S. 50 was resurfaced was summer 1996. Drivers can expect single lane closures along westbound Route 50 in the project area Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. SHA will use cones, barrels and electronic signs to guide motorists through the work zone. A daily average of more than 14,500 motorists travel along westbound U.S. 50 between Berlin and Whaleyville. Motorists may use MD 346 (Old Ocean City Road) as an alternate.

Tri-County Council seeks local funds for new trolley program Continued from Page 27A

rience of visitors to the area. Shore Transit proposes that two trolleys make six runs each per day to designated stops from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Rides would begin at the Park and Ride in West Ocean City. Stops could include the commercial harbor in West Ocean City, Casino at Ocean Downs and the Ocean Pines Swim and Racquet Club, among others. To raise funds, the Tri-County Council proposes sponsorships ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. For $5,000, one would be a bronze partner and could advertise in the trol-

leys, have the company name on all advertising and information handouts on the trolley routes, have the company’s logo with a link on the Shore Transit Web site, receive 50 coupons for free trolley rides and have a medium-sized company logo at the trolley stop nearest to the company’s business location. For $10,000, one would be a silver partner and would receive the same benefits as a bronze partner, but the number of coupons for free rides would be increased to 100 and the company logo at the trolley stop nearest the company’s location would be larger. For $20,000, one would be a gold

partner and would receive the same benefits as the bronze and silver partners, but the number of coupons for free rides would be increase to 200 and they could have a medium-sized company logo at all trolley stops. For $50,000, one would be a platinum partner. In addition to the benefits the other partners are receiving, they would get 500 coupons for free rides, company sponsorship information on the Shore Transit Web site and a large company logo at all trolley stops. The Council wants funding commitments in place by May 1. Otherwise, the project will be moved to summer 2014.

Fire code restricts ceiling height of midtown hotel parking level Continued from Page 1A

Despite the scope of the project, not much is changing as far as the city’s regulations are concerned, according to Zoning Administrator Blaine Smith. Most of the city’s impact fees, which charge developers for the burden they will be lacing on the town’s public infrastructure, such as roads and trash collection, are calculated by number of rooms. The Ocean Voyager had 100; La Quinta will have 101. “They’ve been credited with what they now have,” Smith said, “so they’ll really just be paying the city for one room.” Additional impact fees, such as those for wastewater, might apply if the hotel drastically increases the number of drains and fixtures versus what already exists in the Ocean Voyager. The design of the new project also maintains a certain area of permeable surfaces, such as plants, which is required by the city to minimize increased storm water runoff from concrete and pavement. “They have to maintain a certain percentage of the ground as vegetation and they have done that,” Smith said. The commissioners’ major concerns centered on parking. The city code requires new construction to have a certain number of parking spaces included, based on the size and use of the facility. The Ocean Voyager, however, pre-dates

those regulations and the city typically “grandfathers” in any existing code nonconformity as long as the new structure doesn’t make the situation worse. “Whether or not it will be ‘adequate,’ I can’t answer,” Smith said. “It is legal and they have reduced their deficiency [in the proposed facility]. Right now, they have nowhere near what they need [for the Ocean Voyager].” In order to pack more parking into the lot, however, many of the parking spaces are narrower than what the city considers standard. According to Chris Carbaugh of the Atlantic Group, the developer representing the property’s owners, most of the spaces will be around nine feet wide. “We’ve seen projects where, once you put in the columns and walls, it doesn’t work out like it does on paper,” said Commissioner Peck Miller. “We’ve seen a lot where they have the nine feet, but you still can’t open the car doors.” Also of concern is the fact that the parking area will have a ceiling clearance of as little as seven feet in some places, meaning that patrons with taller vehicles would have to park in the few spaces that are in front of the hotel and not under it. Although the city’s zoning code would permit the structure to be built higher to provide more clearance, the current design height is already at the

50-foot cutoff prescribed by the city Fire Marshal’s code. If the building was to go up beyond 50 feet, the fire code would require it to have sprinklers and smoke ventilation equipment that add considerable cost to the project, something which many developers intentionally build low to avoid, Smith said. “You’ve all heard me say this before,” said Commissioner Lauren Taylor, alluding to the friction between the Planning and Zoning and Fire Marshall’s Departments within the town. “We’re making a project not as good as it could be because of an outdated fire standard.” Also of issue is the means of entrance and exit from the hotel’s lot, which is nearly impossible to do from 33rd Street or from the highway side because of traffic volume. The project proposes installing a sidewalk grade — or “curb cut” — for a main entrance and exit on 32nd Street. A secondary access point will be on Baltimore Avenue, where the Ocean Voyager’s current, and only, lot access is located. Given that the north and southbound lanes of Baltimore Avenue are divided, the only way to enter the lot currently is to make a U-turn at 33rd Street from the northbound lane into the southbound. “I don’t want to be the one promoting more U-turns at that intersection,” noted Commission Chair Pam Buckley.

However, eliminating the existing curb cuts on Baltimore would give the new project only one point of ingress and egress, an even dicier proposition. Further, Smith assured the commission that the flow of traffic inside the proposed facility, which moves in a circular pattern, would not cause either access point to be backed up. “Once you can get in, you have good circulation on the property,” he said. The project also offers the opportunity to settle some ownership confusion between the city and the property’s owner. According to Smith, the lot was originally laid out at a somewhat odd angle. When the city built and paved 33rd Street, it discovered that the road actually occupied a triangular corner of the private lot. When the property was developed in the 1950s or ’60s, Smith said, the owners requested that the city give up its right-of-way to a small alley that ran north-south through the lot. In exchange, the city requested that the owners grant the city permanent rights to the land on which 33rd Street was built. But the sliver of land was never actually given to the city outright, something that the current owners have agreed to concede. “I believe we’re now in agreement that they will do a deed of transfer to the town,” Smith said.

Schools warming to online communication with parents,students ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 5, 2013) Typically taking the form of a Cheetos-stained paper recovered from the bottom of a backpack long after its relevance has expired, printed scholastic announcements may soon be on their way out, depending on the success of a recent pilot program by the county’s school district. Beginning a few weeks ago with a notice about school safety, Worcester’s public school system will now be posting video clips concerning a number of topics online for viewing by students’ parents and guardians. “So often what we depend on is wordof-mouth from our principals,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson. “We’re hoping to diffuse the message to a broader group of individuals than

would be able to get it directly.” The first video, posted on the county schools’ home page as well as being available through YouTube, is an informational clip that addresses the schools’ recent review of safety practices and the decision for several pending changes in school security. The video was filmed and produced by Stephen Decatur High School students and future video features will likely be done by student cinematographers as well. “We’re asking the kids to do it for us, building on some of their intellectual and creative capacity,” Wilson said. He estimated that roughly half of the county’s schools use Twitter and about a third use Facebook to disseminate information. However, social media is typically used to direct viewers back to the county schools’ main Web site, worces-

terk12.com, for notices and announcements. According to Web site activity data provided by the schools’ Public Relations Coordinator Barb Witherow, visits to the district Web site have indeed spiked whenever pertinent information – such as school closings and delays – has been posted and spread around the Internet. A mass phone message sent to parents regarding the safety video netted an instantaneous spike in new visitors as well. Witherow will also be including a new section on this year’s communications survey, which parents are due to return this month, asking questions about the use of technology, social media, and general interest in new forms of communication. “We’re mostly going after parent information, but I would like to know about how students view the Web site as well, and what would encourage them to use it,” Witherow said.

“We’re in a highly competitive market where people are trying to out-do one another constantly,” Wilson said of online media, especially amongst the younger set. Also presenting a challenge to the schools’ use of such means is the fact that social media is typically a negative factor in schools, given its nature as a breeding ground for bullying and student conflict. “We’re generally using it in a reactionary manner, which gives us a bad impression as to how it can be used to spread information,” Wilson said. One section, however, where the schools have found some success with students is the use of YouTube to provide lesson help. “Teachers are saying that they’re appreciative of us being more liberal with YouTube use,” Wilson said. “I think there’s a lot of benefit to students being able to view a short primer, if you will, before their lessons in the classroom.”

Devices reduce injury incidence from 47 to14 percent; claims still up Lagstrom also submitted that four of the OCPD’s costliest compensation payouts, surveyed from the period of July 2009 to June 2012, were the result of physically restraining combative suspects. The combined cost of those cases was $117,574. “We’ve definitely seen a decrease in the number of injuries reported, and to the severity of injuries,” Lagstrom said. “We still have officers injured in other areas.” “I think [Tasers] have helped reduce worker’s compensation claims for like actions,” concurred Mayor Rick Meehan.

Continued from Page 9A

fectiveness of Tasers as well as left some questions as to what other injuries officers may sustain. According to Guiton, the OCPD recorded 53 incidents since the inception of ECDs in which an officer had to confront a suspect resisting arrest, but did not have a Taser available. In 25, or 47 percent, of those cases, the officer, suspect or both sustained some type of injury. However, if one looks at all like incidents in which an officer did have a Taser, the injury rate lowered from 47 percent to 14 percent, Guiton said.

“There are still claims for things like auto accidents [which Tasers would not help with].” The council approved the purchase with five votes. Ashley and Councilwoman Margaret Pillas abstained from the vote, saying they would prefer to see the whole financial picture before making a decision. “Nine days from now we’re going to start a budget process and I’d like to see where we are with spending money at that point,” Pillas said. Despite settling the issue of the purchase itself, the question is still open as

to what is causing an increase in the cost of officer injuries at the same time that Tasers are working to decrease them. City Manager David Recor said he would be discussing the matter with the council at his initial budget presentation next week and would be looking into the best way to manage the city’s claims system. Currently, he said, the city pays compensation claims directly out of its general fund. But if the city were to purchase an insurance policy, and have its claims paid by a private carrier, there is a chance it could work out to the advantage of the city’s budget.

Healthcare coverage info, assistance available during AGH Delmarva Enrollment Day (April 5, 2013) On April 11, Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin will hold Enroll Delmarva Day, a day its patient financial services department has dedicated to assisting the community with health insurance coverage. During this event, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the hospital lobby, uninsured Marylanders can learn more about available health care coverage options and receive guidance in filling out plan applications. AGH will have financial counselors on hand to answer questions and assist with the forms. “As part of our ongoing assistance to

our community, financial counselors are always available to assist our patients in need,” said Mickey Griffin, director of patient financial services at AGH. “The enrollment event serves to increase the visibility of our financial counseling services, and we encourage the community to take advantage of this opportunity.” Atlantic General Hospital’s financial counseling staff will be joined by representatives from Priority Partners, the Worcester County Health Department and Worcester County Social Services who can address any specific questions or concerns about their programs.

Protestors turn heads downtown ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

Anti-circumcision activists demonstrate at the foot of the Route 50 bridge near North Division Street Tuesday. Although it has tried to keep a loose grip, there is little the city can do to restrict the freedoms of street artists and protestors.

(April 5, 2013) Wearing a costume on the Boardwalk isn’t just for street performers. Activists protesting circumcision appeared in the resort this week, first gathering on the boards near Worcester Street and then at the base of the Route 50 Bridge, confirming that the city may again be facing some of the same First Amendment issues with social activists as it does with street artists. The protestors, who view the circumcision of infants as an unlawful act of genital mutilation before the child is of the age of consent, have appeared in the resort before. But this year has reportedly been the first in which they’ve worn costumes – white jumpsuits with

large bloodstains on the groin. “They were pretty prevalent last year too, but not in that kind of garb,” said City Clerk Kelly Allmond, whose office received a number of complaints Tuesday from citizens. However, Allmond said, the right to free speech means that activists may demonstrate freely on public property, as long as they do not present an imminent safety hazard. “We were a little concerned about them blocking store entrances, but there haven’t been enough of them to prevent you from getting in or out of buildings,” Allmond said. The city has long faced the same issue with Boardwalk street artists and performers, but has been extremely cautious of the issue since a 2011 lawsuit in which artist Mark Chase, who frequently sets up on the Boardwalk to do spray paint murals, challenged the city’s ability to enforce a permitting program for street performers. Although Chase won the suit, the city was granted the ability to prohibit performance in certain areas that posed a hazard for fire and crowd control, including several choke points on the Boardwalk. Given the legal ruling, the city is likely to treat protestors and activists in the same way. Anti-circumcision activism appears to have grown considerably in the U.S. over the past two years, with those involved challenging the long-held belief that the practice is hygienically beneficial. They have also pointed to a double standard in most Western societies where, while male circumcision is considered to be necessary and, in many cases, a sign of religious power, the same procedure to the female apparatus is widely frowned upon.

Lady Mallards top Howard, Wilde Lake

SPORTS BRIEFS

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 5, 2013) The Worcester Prep girls’ lacrosse team traveled to Elkridge, Md. last Saturday to compete in a tournament with the Howard Lions, Reservoir Gators and Wilde Lake Wildecats. The Lady Mallards first went head-to-head with the Gators. Up 10-4 at halftime, Worcester went on to win 2011. “We were still a little rusty so it was a good chance to get the kinks out,” said Prep Coach Page Rogers. “We kept improving. Our passes were cleaner and more accurate, and we were moving well as a team.” Senior Meredith Soulé, junior Lilly DiNardo and sophomore Sophie Brennan scored three goals apiece. Junior Kristen Shriver logged two goals and four assists. Sophomore Carolyn Dorey started in goal for the Mallards, and junior Maddie Pilchard took over in the second half. Both girls recorded five saves. The Mallards matched up against the Lions next and it was a battle. The score was tied five times, but it was Worcester who came out on top 9-8. “They were physically bigger and stronger than us and they had a lot of really good players,” Rogers said. “It was a tough game from the first whistle.” Rogers said the Mallards were on a roll at the end of the first half and they went into the break with a 6-5 lead. According to the rulebook, there is a running clock except when goals are scored and on every whistle during the last two minutes of each half. During the last two minutes of the Worcester-Howard game, the clock did not stop, as the score was tied 8-8. In the final seconds, Pilchard stopped a free-position shot and passed the ball to See MALLARDS on Page 41A

The Seahawks came out on top of both match-ups, 4-3. The girls competed on Worcester’s courts in Berlin. Decatur seniors Emmalee Murrell and Tori Whigham won their second and third singles matches, respectively, 8-5. Prep sophomore Tatjana Kondraschow shut out her first singles opponent 8-0 and freshman Sonja Walker

earned an 8-3 victory at fifth singles. Prep senior Parker Kellam and junior Lydia Pritchard, both team captains, took their first doubles match 8-6. Decatur’s second doubles team, juniors Annie James and Valerie Petsche, edged out their competitors 8-6 to tie the competition at 3-3 with the fourth singles match still under way. Decatur senior Lexi Ashton and Worcester Prep junior Claire Stickler went head-to-head at fourth singles. Seahawks Coach Jamie Greenwood said Ashton trailed 0-3, but she fought her way back. Ashton came out on top 8-6 to secure the vic-

tory for Decatur. “She was playing a seed ahead of where she normally does (fifth singles) and she handled the pressure very well,” Greenwood said of Ashton. “Under the conditions we were facing, with the cold, wind and some rain, I think we did well,” he said. This is Greenwood’s fifth season as head coach. His record against Worcester Prep is now 2-7.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Stephen Decatur junior Gabrielle Ortega competes in the triple jump during the March 27, meet at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin.

(April 5, 2013) The Stephen Decatur boys’ and girls’ outdoor track teams earned first-place honors during the March 27 11-school meet at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin. The Lady Seahawks scored 142 points, and Cambridge followed in second with 93.5. “The girls did well. I thought it would be a lot closer than it was,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. “We scored a lot of points in the relays and field events.” Junior Katie Collins won the long jump (13 feet 5 inches). Alex Saunders, a junior, reached a personal best height in the high jump (4 feet 10 inches). Sophomore Hannah Wilson finished in third place in the high jump, tying her personal best height of 4 feet 8 inches. Collins, sophomore Amari Harmon, junior Emma Spack and senior Shikerra Collick won the 400-meter relay race (55.9 seconds). Junior Rebecca Lederman joined Collins, Har-

mon and Collick for the 800-meter relay event. The girls crossed the finish line first, completing the race in 1:58.5. Juniors Chloe FauntLeRoy and Liz Rougcher, sophomore Kayla Alcantar and freshman Alison Alvarado competed in, and won, both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter relay races. The foursome finished the 1,600 in 5:00.5 and the 3,200 in 11:57. The Decatur boys’ team scored 124.3 points. Parkside was runnerup with 70 points. “I was happy with the way the boys did. We were missing a few people and I know they will help is us in a few events,” Stigler said. Senior Kyle Kelly scored a victory in the 300-Intermediate hurdles event (44.7 seconds). Patrick Phillips, a senior, threw the shot put 45 feet 1.5 inches, good for first place.

We were playing against a strong, aggressive team and we had to play a complete game of lacrosse,” Rogers said. “We played great pressure defense, we commu-

nicated well and we were patient on offense, but we’re still dropping a lot of balls.” DiNardo led the Mallards with five goals. Meredith Smith scored two, and fellow senior captain Alex Bruder chipped in with one. Junior Cynthia Delaney also contributed a goal. Dorey stopped four shots in the first half and Pilchard made eight saves in the second. The Mallards kept the momentum on Tuesday when

they played the Gunston Day Herons in Centreville. Junior Meg Lingo scored four goals and had an assist in the 19-1 win. DiNardo and senior captain Molly Marshall each netted three.

Seahawks finished the day playing well. “We haven’t been able to get in a groove from the beginning,” he said. “Once we get our game going and we settle into our offense, we’re pretty good. We need to play that way from start to finish.” Decatur is scheduled to travel to Salisbury on Monday to play the Wi-Hi Indians.

(April 5, 2013) After a disappointing 4-0 loss to the Crisfield Crabbers, March 27, the Stephen Decatur baseball team bounced back Tuesday with a 10-0 win over the Washington Jaguars in Berlin. “I think that they did a really good job coming back from [the] loss … It was kind of tough on them mentally to be shut down like that,” Decatur Coach Rich Ferro said after the Seahawks’ April 2 victory. “They answered some questions in terms of progression, as if we’re getting better or not, and we’re really happy as a coaching staff that they came out to play [Tuesday].

“Bats started a little slow, but they had good approaches and took good swings and I thought their ability to put the ball in play helped us out big time,” he said. In the bottom of the third inning, Decatur sophomore Sean Colgan’s sacrifice fly scored senior Noah McAleer to give the team a 1-0 lead. With the bases loaded in the fifth, Colgan’s hit down the third base line put the Seahawks on top 2-0. Sophomore Grant Donahue doubled to drive in two more runs. Senior Dallas Harrington stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded. His triple cleared the bases and Decatur now had a 7-0 advantage. “That was a big hit for us,” Ferro said. Chase Coursey, a junior, drove Harrington home. Junior Andrew Borradaile tripled to score Coursey, giving Decatur a 9-0 lead. “Andrew Borradaile came in today and got his first start at the varsity level. [He] was 2-for-2 with a triple and single, and did really good job,” Ferro said. The Seahawks won the game in the bottom of the sixth with a bases-loaded walk (10-run slaughter rule). Donahue pitched all six innings. He struck out seven, allowed two hits and walked two. “We definitely came out ready to play,” Ferro said. “I think there may have been some nerves because we didn’t know what we were going to get swinging the bat. I think the increased work in the cage has paid off.” Decatur’s next game is scheduled for Monday in Salisbury against the Parkside Rams.

[players], it was their first singles experience,” Hudson said. “They were very nervous and excited. They did a great job for the first match of the season and they see where they could improve and do better next time.” At the Ocean City Tennis Center on 61st Street, Decatur senior captains, Tim VanVonno and Joe Iacona, won their second and third singles matches, respectively, 8-6 and 8-2. VanVonno broke his racket during the match and had to borrow Iacona’s spare. Junior John Niedfeldt took his fourth singles match 8-4. Prep senior captain Tom Thornett logged an 8-3 victory at first singles. “Tommy Thornett played one of his smartest matches of the past two years at No. 1,” said Coach Keith Coleman.

Decatur Coach Steve Berquist

“Tommy had to be patient and work at building points, which he did consistently. He seemed very relaxed and confident...” Decatur junior Zach Elmer and Worcester sophomore Erik Zorn battled at fifth singles. Zorn trailed 6-4 at one point, but fought back to win 9-7. “Erik Zorn is an amazing competitor.

He doesn’t have the tennis background that some of the other players have, but he uses his superior athletic ability to grind out a match,” Coleman said. The Mallards first doubles team of senior London Walker and sophomore Chris Choy won 8-2. Decatur and Worcester each had three victories with only the second doubles contest remaining. Due to some absences, the Mallards had to forfeit the match to freshmen Seahawks Logan Romberger and Christian Beres. “It’s always fun playing the Prep school

because all the kids know each other,” said Coach Steve Berquist. “I thought we played really well. We seemed a little more comfortable with the wind [than the Mallards].” Added Coleman, “I feel that some of the players seemed to be intimidated by the cold and windy conditions and they were clearly outplayed in terms of consistency. Some of that is just shaking off the rust, but some of it is an attitude that you bring to the court every day.” The two schools are scheduled to compete again on Friday, April 26.

We haven’t seen much competition so we’re trying to sharpen our skills and work on our plays because in lower-scoring, tighter ball games we’ve got to execute that stuff,” Howard said. “We’ve got a core group of girls who are really good and the younger kids are coming along quickly, so we should be fine.” Decatur is scheduled for a trip to Delaware today, Friday, to play the Indian River Indians.

According to its research, there were 54,000 completed foreclosures in the U.S. in February 2013, down from 67,000 in February 2012. On a month-overmonth basis, completed foreclosures fell from 58,000 in January 2013 to the February 2013 level of 54,000, a decrease of 7 percent. “February’s 54,000 completed foreclosures is the lowest level nationally since September 2007,” said Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. As it relates to our local tricounty area of Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties, the statistical figures were similar. We had 17 completed foreclosures in February 2013 compared to 21 in February 2012, showing a 20percent decrease. Interesting to note on a national level, CoreLogic reported that the five states with the highest number of completed foreclosures for the previous 12-month period account for almost half of all completed foreclosures nationally. Those five states were Florida, California, Michigan, Texas and Georgia. Another important statistic reported in the National Foreclosure Report was a 21 percent decrease in foreclosure shadow inventory. Shadow inventory are the homes that are in some stage of forecloSee HALF on Page 46A

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! West Ocean City’s popular Harborside to celebrate 20 years in business with a party this Sunday LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 5, 2013) Chris Wall and Lloyd Whitehead will celebrate 20 years as owners/operators of West Ocean City’s Harborside Bar and Grill on Sunday with an allday, all-night party. Food and drink specials will be offered and prizes will be given away. There will also be a pig and bull roast. DJ Billy T will provide music from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by the Saltwater String Band from 2-6 p.m. Billy T will play again from 6-9 p.m., and DJ BK will take over at 9 p.m. He will play until close. Wall and Whitehead said they’ve had countless loyal customers patronize the hot spot over the years. And many of those customers, Whitehead added, have become close friends.

They are also appreciative of their employees, several of whom have worked for the pair for a number of years. “We’re very fortunate with the staff we have here. We owe a lot of our success to them,” Wall said Monday as he and Whitehead reminisced about their 20-year business venture. “We’re very grateful for our loyal staff and customers we’ve had for 20 years that kept us going.” Wall and Whitehead have admittedly had differences, but they have always put what is in the best interests of Harborside ahead of anything else. They first met in the seventh grade at Worcester Preparatory School (then Worcester Country School). After graduation, they went their separate ways to do different things, but met up one afternoon in summer 1992 at Pickle’s Pub, when Wall

was doing laundry nearby. Real Estate agent Paul Carlotta, Jr., who the two became friends with when they all worked at Phillips restaurant on 21st Street in 1990, walked in and asked they if they wanted to buy a bar. “We were just hanging out. We had planned to go to BJ’s [on the Water] for the deck party,” Wall said. Plans changed and the three went over to the Stumblin’ Inn to check it out. They decided to take on the business together — thus, Harborside was born. “It took longer than expected to go through, but it finally all came together,” Wall said. While friends, family and employees waited outside, they signed their lease on March 29, 1993. After a quick celebration, they got busy cleaning. See SIGNATURE on Page 46A

Wall and Whitehead bought out Carlottaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share in 1995 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same year the famous Orange Crush made its debut. Each year, tens of thousands of Orange Crushes are sold, Wall said. In January 2001, they bought the South Harbor Road property where Harborside resides. They expanded the deck area during their first spring in business and have made a number of additional renovations over the years, including remodeling the bathrooms and kitchen. They also upgraded the indoor and deck bar areas. The outside deck had been closed during the winters until 2005, when they added heaters and winterized the area better to keep the heat in, Wall said. Last year, a new dock was completed to provide more space for boaters. An outdoor seating area was also constructed. Whitehead said when he thinks back sometimes and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 20 years since they opened the restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long, strange trip,â&#x20AC;? Wall added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People love the atmosphere here. We want them to come here and have a good time.â&#x20AC;?

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 5, 2013) Tickets are going fast for Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation Beach Respite Housing Program’s spring gala, set for April 12, at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel on 101st Street. Only 210 tickets will be sold. Wayne Littleton, coordinator for the Believe in Tomorrow Gala headliner C h i l d r e n ’ s Foundation Bruce Gold B e a c h Respite Housing Program said Monday that fewer than 30 tickets remain. The cost is $75 per person, or $150 per couple. The deadline to purchase tickets is today, April 5. Until last year, a musical act had been featured during the organization’s annual gala. The 11th annual gala, however, featured “International Champion of Magic” John George. “[It] was, by far, the best event we’ve had,” Littleton said of the 2012 event, adding that attendees were in a good mood and happy when they left. Comedian/magician Bruce Gold is set to headline the 12th annual event on April 12. The 2013 fundraiser for Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation Respite Housing Program, which provides critically ill children and their families a much-needed getaway to the beach from the everyday stresses of a child’s medical illness, will begin with cocktails at 6 p.m. followed by a sit-down dinner. Sweet Disposition of Selbyville, Del. will provide the desserts. See PROCEEDS on Page 4B

Annual Ocean City walk raises funds for world’s largest pediatric cancer research center (April 5, 2013) Recently married with a 1-year-old son, Judy Davis was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), a blood cancer that often strikes children, in February 1983. She was 27 years old. Ten years ago, Davis, now 57, established an annual Boardwalk fundraiser — Let’s Walk the Boards for St. Jude Children’s Hospital — that benefits St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. “As a long term survivor of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, I know firsthand the physical, financial and emotion challenge of being ill. No one wants to imagine a child undergoing a similar ordeal,” she said. “[February] marked 30 years since I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.” The Memphis medical facility is a lead researcher in the fight against childhood catastrophic illnesses, including Leukemia, Sickle Cell Disease, Pediatric AIDS and Genetic Immune Disorders. Research conducted there is shared with doctors and scientists worldwide. “There’s a high chance the chemotherapy protocol used on me was developed by St. Jude’s Hospital,” said Davis, who lives in Ocean City. “My love for children has been the catalyst for the yearly ‘Let’s Walk the Boards for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.’ Knowing what sickness looks like, I can’t imagine being the parent of a child with a serious disease.”

Judy Davis

In the 1980s, 38 percent of people with Leukemia survived for five years or more in the United States. Early detection, knowledgeable physicians and the correct protocol were all factors in her survival, Davis said. Today, 94 percent of children treated for ALL survive for five years or more. Registration for the 10th annual “Let’s Walk the Boards for St. Jude Children’s Hospital” will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, at the southern end of the Boardwalk near the tram station. Walkers may begin their trek at anytime. The purpose of the Boardwalk event is to raise funds for St. Jude, one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic diseases in children, primarily pediatric cancers. In 2012, approximately 35 walkers participated in the resort fundraiser, collecting $4,697 for the hospital. Since the Ocean City walk inception, $22,247 has been raised for the hospital. Davis said the goal this year is to bring in $5,000. According to the event’s Facebook page, participants had raised more than $1,100 as of Monday. Davis said $1,000 pays for two days worth of oxygen for a young patient at St. Jude. A day of

will welcome thousands of dancers and cheerleaders this weekend for the annual competition PAGE 3B

chemotherapy for a St. Jude patient costs $750, and $500 provides two transfusion units of red blood cells. Davis said faithful walkers come out year after year, but new participants are always encouraged. “It’s a small group with a big heart,” she said. A $15 donation is required to participate. All walkers will receive a certificate of participation. Those who raise $35 or more will get a T-shirt. People who collect $75 or more will take home a St. Jude gym bag and T-shirt. Walkers who garner $150 or more will be awarded a St. Jude camp folding stool, bag and shirt. All donations are tax-deductible. Students can also earn three service hour credits for participating. The 4.5-mile stroll on the Boardwalk will take place rain or shine, and walkers do not have to complete the entire course. St. Jude is the world’s largest pediatric cancer research center in terms of the number of patients enrolled and treated. Since opening in 1962, the hospital has treated more than 20,000 children from the United States and 70 foreign countries. Research at St. Jude includes gene therapy, bone marrow transplant, chemotherapy and radiation treatment among others, and the results are shared with doctors around the world. For information about St. Jude Children’s Hospital, visit www.stjude.org. To take part in the Ocean City walk or to make a donation, call Davis at 410-213-1956.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Taking classic recipes to new heights is ‘in’ DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (April 5, 2013) Arranging the pieces of a gastronomical puzzle is part of the challenge of being a chef. Sorting through various shapes of chance is not always understood, but the bits of mayhem may have purpose. As we simmer in anticipation, is success flavored with luck or perseverance? The philosophy of wisdom is the hand of truth that stirs the pot. Chefs and their gastric skills are the special of the day. In pursuit of ingenuity, we must consider what type of culinary principles pivot a particular dish to a level of distinction. Freeing our minds from familiarity is the foundation for enlightenment; and in doing so, the path of knowledge takes direction. Elevating classic recipes to new heights is quite fashionable these days. This point of view adds dimensions to an era that deserves the utmost respect. Contemporaries focus on tomorrow, but the impressions of the past must garnish the fundamental sources if preservation is to rise to the surface. A genius is the master of love; total devotion is the only existence. The world is only given once to those who seek erudition; therefore, procrastination is not an option. Unification of relativity and theory blend to form an all-inclusive menu; the boundaries of food extend far beyond the edges of a plate. The journey of comprehension never has an ending because advancement can never be satisfied. Let the lesSee CHEFS on Page 3B

sons begin. No dish is complete without a garnish of perseverance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? is not a word on the path to â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? Dedication, determination, and deliverance are the trinity of cookery. The commencement of unconsciousness must focus on these ingredients if talent is to flourish. Specifics equate a clearer perception.. On that note, let us delve into the art of pesto. The mineral-rich seaside terrain of Liguriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s villages and mountain towns are well suited for growing exceptional produce. Basil is perhaps the most famous of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flora. The abundance of sweet basil was probably one reason pesto came to be. Garlic, pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and a good quality

extra-virgin olive oil are the other components of this famous dish. Originality is the salt and pepper of cooking. Pesto can be initiated from a variety of ingredients. Do not be afraid to experiment with vegetables that one might not consider appropriate for the Italian classic. Remember, there are no boundaries; it is up to the individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preference. The combination of eggplant, sweet red peppers, onions, tomatoes, ricotta cheese, and basil also is a delightful pesto. The ricotta balances the acidity and finishes the dish with a delightful creaminess. Pesto can be served over toasted baguettes, used in al dente pasta or as spreads for sandwiches. In other words, the possibilities are abundant. Sun-dried tomato and black olive pesto with a hint of ricotta cheese is a personal favorite.

SUN-DRIED TOMATO & BLACK OLIVE PESTO 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup toasted, blanched almonds (chopped) 1 1/4 tablespoons crushed, dried rosemary 1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 1 rounded tablespoon ricotta cheese 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 20 pitted oil-cured black olives 10 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped 1 rounded tablespoon capers, drained kosher salt, ground pepper to taste Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix for 7 seconds. Garnish wiuth few pinches of dried pepper flakes

SECRET INGREDIENT: Wisdom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A wise man is he who does not grieve for the thing which he has not, but rejoices for those which he hasâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;Ś Epictetus.

Ocean 98.1. JJ Roth of 93.5 The Beach will be the gala emcee. The “Hero by the Sea” award will be presented to a longtime supporter Pete Meeks, owner of Delaware Elevator. Meeks is spearheading the project of installing a full-service elevator in the Believe In Tomorrow House By The Sea four-unit apartment building on 66th Street. Meeks has donated the elevator. The project is about 65 percent completed, Littleton said Monday. The building currently has a wheelchair lift. Because it is exposed to the salt air, the lift is prone to mechanical issues and rust. The lift only goes up to the first floor of the facility so just one unit is handicap accessible. With a fullservice elevator, the three units on the second floor will be handicap accessible, as well. “It will be great when it’s done. It’s something we really need here,” Littleton said. “It’s going to be unbelievable the difference it will make here.” Several families who take advantage of the program’s services will attend the gala. One of the mothers will talk about her family’s experience with the organization. Billed as “Clean, Clever Comedy & Magic,” Gold will take the stage after dinner. Gold, who at the age of 12 discovered he was related to Harry Houdini, has appeared in comedy clubs

across the country and on the world’s largest cruise ships. He has been featured on more than a dozen TV shows, including “Evening At The Improv,” “Oprah” and the 1980s-90s sitcom “Full House.” Gold also showed off his talent in an award-winning “Got milk?” television commercial. “It should be a nice event. We’re looking forward to it,” Littleton said. Proceeds from the April 12 event will help pay for upkeep of the organization’s three resort facilities, as well as fund activities such as cookouts for the children and their families who stay at one of the houses. The resort facilities include a fourunit apartment building on 66th Street; a house on the bay at 28th Street, the first respite house in the country to focus on the needs of military pediatrics; and a townhouse in Fenwick Island, Del. Rarely is there a time when the facilities are empty. Six families fill the houses each week throughout the summer, typically from mid-May through September. In the off-season — the winter, spring and fall — at least three or four families on average stay at the facilities each week. Last year, approximately 176 families vacationed at the houses, Littleton said. For additional information, call Littleton at 410-723-2842.

DAILY HALF-PRICE SPECIALS

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little woolgathering is OK. But don’t let that dreamy state linger beyond midweek, when you’ll want to be ready to take on new workplace responsibilities. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Love rules the week for single Bovines seeking romance. Attached pairs also find new joy in their relationships. Friday should bring news about a business opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home becomes the center of a new social whirl, as you show your talent for hosting great parties. You can expect to impress a lot of people who’ve never seen this side of you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child might have to raise those powers of persuasion a notch to get a still-wary colleague to agree to go along. Finding more facts to back up your position helps. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Hold off trying to fix the blame for an apparent mishandling of a work situation. A full investigation could reveal surprising facts on how and why it really happened. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your ability to find details others might overlook gives you an advantage in assessing a possibly toogood-to-be-true offer. A trusted colleague has advice. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to be called on once again to act as peacemaker in a long-simmering dispute that suddenly flares up. Offer advice, but be careful to stay out of the fray. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your organizational skills help you line up your priorities so that you get things done without added pressure. The weekend could hold a special surprise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) New ventures are favored. But don’t launch yours before rechecking all facts and sources. Also, be sure you can rely on support from certain people. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don’t be pushed into renegotiating an agreement, even though it might help avoid a potential impasse. Get legal advice before you sign or agree to anything. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Helping others is what Aquarians do so well. But this time, someone wants to help you. Expect to hear some news that will both surprise and delight you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things go so swimmingly that you’re tempted to take on more tasks. Best advice: Finish what you have now, then enjoy a well-earned relaxing weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: Your understanding of human nature helps you make wise decisions that are appreciated by all. You would make a fine judge.
