Now it’s time to wait for 30 days Public input period for city’s proposed bus fare hike begins

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

KOMEN RUN Participants take off from the starting line in the inlet parking lot during the third annual Susan G. Komen Ocean City Race for the Cure, Sunday. Approximately 2,500 people registered for the day's events.

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) The Town of Ocean City has started the formal 30-day public input period for its proposed bus fare hike, which would see the elimination of the $1-perboarding option and force all riders to purchase a $3 allday pass. As required by the state and federal agencies which partially fund the city’s transit system, the city’s Transportation Division will be accepting public queries over

a month-long waiting period. Although a public hearing would only be required if formally requested, Councilwoman Margaret Pillas asked that one be held at the end of the period regardless. “We will be back before the Mayor and Council on May 19, at which time we’ll provide the council with any requests for information we’ve received during the 30day period,” said city Public Works Director Hal Adkins. “If said public hearing is requested, it would be held at that meeting…and your final decision would be forwarded to the MTA [Maryland Transit Administration] on May See PUBLIC Page 6

High school to heroin

$

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) By his own admission, selfproclaimed drug addict Connor “Wes” Bresnahan is fuzzy on the details of what transpired as he plunged ever downward into a world of needles, theft, dealing and, ultimately, jail time. Convicted twice on drug charges, the 23-yearold looked like any other young adult as he walked into a private visiting room at the Worcester County Jail. Clean, tall, trim and light-haired, Bresnahan might otherwise be any white middleclass young man about to embark on a successful career, were it not for the county-issued jumpsuit that he wore. The other indicator of how far he had fallen was the door that locked behind him as he entered the room and the sheet of glass pocked with handprints that separated the visiting station into the prisoners’ side and those who come to see See WES Page 77

By Stewart Dobson Publisher (April 18, 2014) Heroin and prescription drug addiction is no longer the distant affair it used to be, when murky people fed their habits on the dim outskirts of society. That, at least, is how once it seemed in middle-class America, because whatever was happening was taking place elsewhere to anonymous people. That has changed in recent years, and no one knows that better than Jackie Ball and Kevin Bresnahan and their son, Wes, who at 23 is off opiates for what might be the first time in years. The absence of heroin, OxyContin or Suboxone in his system, however, is not because of anything his parents did in their nearly 10-year battle to save him. Wes is clean now because he has no choice. He is in the Worcester County Jail in the middle of an 18-month sentence for transporting heroin. Police See HEROIN Page 75

Public now gets chance to say if fare is fair Continued from Page 1 20,” Adkins said. Only one resort resident business owner, Cindy Hofeditz, has thus far objected to what will likely be increased costs for employees who ride the bus to and from work every day in the summer. “Last year, we hired twelve people and only one of them had a vehicle,” said Hofeditz, who operates amusements. She suggested to council that the town institute some kind of discount pass for residents and employees. The key question, then, would seem to be how much the town should be subsidizing the transportation costs of local businesses. Although the capital costs of the bus system - including the purchase of buses themselves – are almost en-

tirely paid for by the MTA and the Federal Transit Administration, the city’s Transportation Division still operates at a loss that must be subsidized by the town’s General Fund, which relies on tax dollars. If the town were to eliminate the $1 option for this coming June, it would reap a projected $78,000 in additional income for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, which ends June 30. Over the entirely of the coming 2014-2015 fiscal year, the town would gain a whopping $492,000 over the current year’s budget. “If I recall, two years ago, the general fund subsidy to transit was nearly $2 million,” noted Councilman Dennis Dare. The operating deficit for transportation in 2012-2013 was $1.9 million, which was reduced to $1.7

million in the current year. The fare modification would allow the city to reduce this to $1.3 million in the coming year. “The taxpayers are still subsidizing the bus ridership quite a bit,” Dare said. For most resort employees accustomed to paying $1 to get to work and $1 to get back home, the change will essentially amount in a 50 percent fare hike due to paying $3 round-trip rather than $2. “You’re basically talking about increasing it 50 cents per-ride,” Pillas said. “I don’t think you’ll have a problem getting people to buy [the $3 pass],” said Council President Lloyd Martin. Additionally, Adkins noted, “one should not simply look at this as a means of revenue enhancement.”

“Although that may be a priority, the hope of transit in Ocean City is mobility,” Adkins said. “This allows the individual to come and go from the buses at will versus a destinationbased system where someone is going to a single location and returning.” “I’m a big proponent of the rideall-day system,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “Once you buy the ticket, you might have gotten it just to go one place, but now that you have it you’ll use it.” Although he also supported the measure, Councilman Brent Ashley queried the city’s estimate that 25 percent of those who previously used the $1-per-boarding option would cease to use the bus system once the change was made. “If you decrease ridership, how does that square with the idea of getting people to use mass transit?” Ashley asked. “The best answer is really that you can’t have your cake and eat it, too,” Adkins said. “The ideal world would be for us to offer completely free transit…but you can’t afford that. It’s a balancing act.” Ashley encouraged anyone concerned about the impact of the fare change to come forward on or before May 19. “So often we have things the public should be commenting on, but no one shows up,” Ashley said.

City will now be able to air sessions via FM frequencies Federal Communications Commission allots town 99.5, 100.3 radio signals By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) In somewhat of a reverse progression, residents and visitors will soon be able to keep up with City Hall not just via TV and the internet, but over the good old-fashioned airwaves as well. Bob Dimaio, Electronic Services Manager for the town’s Emergency Services division, told council this week that the city’s FM radio project is roughly 60 percent complete. Although the town currently maintains an AM system for emergency broadcasts, the Federal Communications Commission has allotted the town two additional FM frequencies, 99.5 and 100.3. “Because we’ve been a license holder for an AM station over the past few years, we’re in a database,” Dimaio said. “Once every 10 years or so, the FCC opens up the availability to apply for a low-power FM station as well.” Funded by a small federal grant, Dimaio is personally installing the equipment necessary at both the 65th Street Public Safety Building and the broad-

cast substation in Ocean Pines. The station, when complete, will be primarily used to disseminate public notices and information from the city. “We could, if we chose, take work sessions or council meetings and put that out over the radio,” Dimaio said. “We also have a studio in the Public Safety Building…so that we could interview the Mayor or Governor during an emergency.” Road closures would be another likely broadcast, Dimaio said, and the city could even broadcast fire dispatches so that citizens near the site of the emergency would know what first responders were doing. “We do have the intention of playing music on this station as well, so that people will start to listen to it and use it,” said Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald. “It does have to be commercial-free…we are limited on what we can do by the FCC. As with City Hall’s recent interest in parking and bus locator phone applications, Council Secretary Mary Knight asked if the system would support a streaming online broadcast, so that citizens could listen via their smartphones. The system does have that capacity, Dimaio said. “What’s not yet been chosen is the vendor we would use to stream it, and what that rate would be,” he said.

Weed possession decriminalized by state legislature Maryland Sheriff’s Assoc. opposes recent decision

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) When Gov. Martin O’Malley signed a bill into law Monday, Maryland became the 18th state in the country to decriminalize marijuana. That removes the threat of jail for people possessing fewer than 10 grams of marijuana. The law, which goes into effect Oct. 1, makes possession of that amount of marijuana a civil offense punishable by a fine of up to $100 for the first offense, up to $250 for a second offense and up to $500 for subsequent offenses. The Maryland Sheriffs’ Association opposed the decriminalization of marijuana and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office took the same stance. “Issues that can arise from the decriminalization have not been realized yet,” Lt. Ed Schreier said Wednesday. For example, Schreier said, dogs are trained to sniff marijuana, but they do not sniff just more than 10 grams of marijuana. “They just sniff marijuana,” Schreier said. The new law could have an effect on charging someone with driving while impaired by drugs. There could also be issues when there are other issues, such as weapons or other drugs, when the dog is sniffing for marijuana and a search reveals fewer than 10 grams. “It gets into a huge judicial issue because of probable cause and evidentiary rules,” Schreier said. “A lot of things have not been vetted at this time as to how it will affect law enforcement.” Police Chief Ross Buzzuro of the Ocean City Police Department said he would meet with the State’s Attorney’s Office and seek guidance from the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association about the coming change in the law. “We will be in full compliance with the law,” Buzzuro said Wednesday. “We haven’t fully digested what’s to come as a result of the change. It’s so new. We’ll have to see how it will affect us from an operational standpoint. Until Oct. 1, there will be no change in how we enforce the law.” According to the Marijuana Policy Coalition of Maryland, 68 percent of Maryland voters support removing criminal penalties for possession of up to one ounce (about 28.5 grams) and replacing them with a civil fine of up to $100, according to a September survey conducted by Public Policy Polling. It also found that 53 percent of Maryland is at least 21 years of age. “Maryland can no longer sustain the costs associated with outdated marijuana prohibition policies. The community has known this for quite See PENALTY Page 11

Two elderly Berlin residents in apparent murder-suicide (April 18, 2014) Two elderly residents were killed in an apparent murder-suicide on Wednesday, April 16. The couple, identified as Lester and Ada “Midge” Wright, was discovered by family members at their home on 603 Williams Street in Berlin at approximately 8:42 a.m., according to police. “The Berlin Police Department responded to 603 Williams Street to do a ‘check on the welfare’-type call,” said Lt. Ed Schreier of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. “Upon arrival they found one deceased female and a male suffering from gunshot wounds.” The male subject, confirmed to be Lester Wright, 89, was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he later passed away due to multiple gunshot wounds. The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation was called to help with the in-

vestigation, according to Schreier. “They in turn called the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit – that’s standard procedure – to come in and assist with the investigation,” Schreier said. “They are currently investigating this incident. Preliminarily the female had two gunshot wounds and the male suffered three.” Lt. Schreier confirmed that Lester Wright suffered from self-inflicted gunshot wounds, and that the incident is being considered a murder-suicide. “We believed that he may have shot her first and then shot himself,” he said. The residence is just a few blocks away from the “America’s Coolest Small Town” banner hung at the corner of Ocean City Blvd. and Williams Street. Midge, 90, worked in Berlin. Lester formerly owned a car dealership in Berlin. The couple had no children. The investigation is still ongoing.

Penalty for possession reduced Continued from Page 9 some time, and we are pleased to see our elected representatives are doing something about it,” the Coalition said in a statement. “Political opinions are finally catching up with public opinion. “We expect this issue will be taken

up again next spring, and we are hopeful legislators will be ready to explore more comprehensive reform. Until marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol, sales will remain uncontrolled and revenues will benefit criminal enterprises instead of legitimate, tax paying businesses.”

Skate park saga ending Recreations and Parks Chair Joe Mitrecic will recommend to Council that facility ‘stays the way it is’ By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Roughly a year after its fate was first called into question, the issue of cutbacks at the Ocean Bowl Skate Park seems on the verge of being put to rest. “We’ll recommend to the council that it stays the way it is,” Councilman and Recreation and Parks Commission Chair Joe Mitrecic said this week. The commission, along with a citizen skate park subcommittee, has reviewed attendance and cost data for the Ocean Bowl over the past several months to gauge the park’s future viability. “Between the attendance numbers being strong and the fiscal responsibility we’ve seen, I think we’re where we need to be and there’s no reason to bring you back in here every month,” Mitrecic told the committee. Despite less than stellar weather in March, the park was open for 19 days with 568 attendees, an average of about 30 per day. With over 2,000 visitor-hours logged, the average skater stayed over 3.5 hours per visit. Even in the harsh month of January, the park saw an average of 15.66 visitors per day with a 2.57-hour stay. Those numbers rose to 19.95 visitors and 2.95 hours in February. Over all three months combined, the cost to operate the park was $11,100, with admissions

revenue at $8,186. Although the Ocean Bowl will likely never be a break-even proposition for the city, the park has already reduced its operating loss from around $40,000 in 2012 to $20,000 last year. During budget sessions in 2013, the city proposed to shut down the park for part of the winter months. Those hours were reinstated after an outcry from the community, with the condition that the city would more closely monitor the facility’s performance. A $3 million capital improvement plan for the two blocks of city park between Third and Fourth Streets and Philadelphia and Chicago Avenues – part of which houses the Ocean Bowl – has already been designed. Roughly $500,000 of that improvement would be for an expansion of the skate park. However, the town is still negotiating with Worcester County for a long-term use agreement for the land, which is owned by the county. In order to borrow funds for the project, the city would need some type of long-term lease or deed transfer on the property. “We are back at the table with the county,” Mitrecic told the committee. “I’ve said that the last thing I do as a councilman, or the first thing I do as a county commissioner, will be that park.” Mitrecic is running unopposed in this fall’s election for Ocean City’s open seat on the county legislative body. With three other council members up for re-election, the fourth-place council candidate would fill Mitrecic’s seat for the remaining two years of his term.

Market study to be done on OC streets–utilizing iPads City to use modernized way to collect key demographic data on resort’s visitors By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Critical data gathering for the city’s upcoming strategic tourism plan will be done with a modernized version of the old-fashioned “feet on the street” method. City officials this week pitched the idea of doing an in-person survey throughout the coming summer in order to collect key demographic data on visitors – but will be using an automated survey program on an iPad, or some other tablet device, instead of the usual pen and paper. “We thought the best way to do it, instead of asking people to fill out a form…is to have questions on an iPad,” said Council Secretary and Tourism Commission Chair Mary Knight. A number of the firms that bid on the city’s strategic tourism consulting earlier this year had included plans for a market study. However, most of these firms were either out of the city’s price range or out of its larger scope of services. Instead, the city decided last month to have Lyle Sumek, the consultant

who worked on the city’s larger strategic plan last year, facilitate the process. But before Sumek can begin holding the discussions, the city will need to have some idea of who is coming to town, and why. “The idea was to have the visitor profile complete before we have the actual work sessions,” said City Manager David Recor. As presented to the Tourism Commission this week, the survey will ask visitors for their ZIP code, the number of people in their group, their length of stay, the purpose of their visit, their type of lodging, their reason for choosing Ocean City over another resort, how much they spend daily on food and entertainment, and the ages of their group. Commission member Todd Ferrante also suggested a ninth question – how many trips to Ocean City visitors make per year – also be added. The most critical part of the survey will likely be where it is conducted. Knight said she and Tourism Director Donna Abbot plan to try the survey at Springfest next month. The city already has iPads used previously for the Ocean City Experience trade show survey. If successful, survey locations over the summer could be at the Chamber See STUDY Page 15

The Mayor and City Council of the Town of Ocean City proposes to increase real property taxes. 1. For the tax year beginning July 1, 2015, the estimated real property assessable base will increase by .330%, from $8,489,127,273 to $8,517,156,880. 2. If the Town of Ocean City maintains the current tax rate of $.4720 per $100 of assessment, real property tax revenues will increase by .330% resulting in $132,300 of new real property tax revenues. 3. In order to fully offset the effect of increasing assessments, the real property tax rate should be reduced to $.4704, the constant yield tax rate. 4. The Town of Ocean City is considering not reducing its real property tax rate enough to fully offset increasing assessments. The Town proposes to adopt a real property tax rate of $.4804 per $100 of assessment. This tax rate is 2.1% higher than the constant yield tax rate and will generate $851,716 in additional property tax revenues. A public hearing on the proposed real property tax increase will be held at 6:00 p.m. on May 5, 2014 at City Hall, 301 Baltimore Avenue, Ocean City Maryland. The hearing is open to the public, and public testimony is encouraged. Persons with questions regarding this hearing may call (410) 289-8730 for further information.

Brewery sent back to council for addition Ocean City Brewing Co. must return to win approval of new 8x10 chiller housing By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) The series of hurdles facing the Ocean City Brewing Company continues to lengthen, as the business will have to go back to city council to gain approval for an eight-by-ten-foot chiller housing. Although the addition is below the 200 square foot threshold for public review, city Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith brought the issue to the Planning and Zoning Commission this week because it would potentially impact the stipulations set by the city on the project. However, because those stipula-

tions were not laid down by the commission, but by the council, the commission felt the issue was out of their hands. “The council is the final voice on conditional approval,” said Commissioner Lauren Taylor. “We don’t need to advise them on the decision they made. They need to look at that themselves.” Despite being located in a commercial zone, the brewery is considered a “manufacturing” use, which requires express approval from the Mayor and Council upon the advice of the Planning and Zoning Commission, both of whom may set specific conditions for operation. The brewery is under construction in the 56th Street building which formerly housed The Adkins Company, a hardware and lumber store. The fa-

cility is 17,300 square feet, although only the rear half will be used for brewing. The front of the space will house a restaurant, bar, and retail sales store. Although the original plans were reviewed by the commission with only minor changes, the council placed a number of more severe restrictions on the project. These included a mandate that all of the elements proposed to be located outside the current building – including the brewery chiller, grain storage silo, and spent grain bin – be moved inside. The project had received a considerable amount of scrutiny from the neighboring Maresol Condominium and Best Western Hotel regarding noise and unsightliness. “I understand that [the council]

did that based on the concerns of the neighborhood, but not necessarily with knowledge of the function of a chiller,” said brewery contrac‘The council is tor Chris Lynch. Lynch told the the final voice commission that on conditional – like all refrigerapproval. We ant units – the don’t need to chiller would need to be advise them on vented. If it was the decision they to remain in the made. They need existing building, it would have to to look at that be vented via the themselves.’ existing garage Commissioner doors, which Lauren Taylor would expose the neighborhood to the noise of other brewery equipment when opened. Even if put outside without an enclosure, it would not make more noise than any other exterior HVAC unit, Lynch said. “This is an attempt on my client’s part to keep the door closed as much as possible,” Lynch said. “We are, without being solicited, protecting the neighbors from noise, even though the chiller by itself would not be an issue if it was outside.” The enclosure for the chiller would be tacked onto the southwest corner of the building, Lynch said, and will have louvers for venting. Plans have been given to the Maresol’s condo board without any objection thus far, he noted. It was his interpretation, Lynch said, that the addition would not be an issue since the council had mandated that the chiller be inside – which it still would be, just not within the footprint of the original building. But despite liking Lynch’s proposal in theory, the commission found that they were not the ones to determine if the chiller addition met the letter of the council’s law. “I think the intent could be clearly interpreted as inside the building asis,” said commission attorney Will Esham. “I can give you my opinion on this but my opinion has already been changed going up the line [via the additional conditions],” said Commissioner Peck Miller. “I don’t think we have anything to do with this.” With the rest of the commission giving the same consensus, the issue will be referred to council. “I will let them know that they’re the ones that made that decision and they’re the ones to decide if this meets that test,” Smith said.

City will charge for Play it Safe bus passes in ‘15 Council votes unanimously to ask for $5 ticket fees

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Although it will not affect the program for the coming season, City Council voted unanimously at a budget hearing last week to begin charging $5 for week-long bus passes during the 2015 Play it Safe program. Play it Safe, which provides secure and substance-free activities for high school graduates during June, has traditionally given away week-long bus pass wristbands at its events. But city officials contended that charging a nominal fee for the wristbands would not only help the city cover its costs, but likely reduce the prevalence of joyriders and rowdy behavior on city buses.

‘I think it’ll be less of an incentive for people to pile on and ride up and down town as a ‘party bus,’ rather than a means of transportation.’ Mayor Rick Meehan “I think it’ll be less of an incentive for people to pile on and ride up and down town as a ‘party bus,’ rather than a means of transportation,� said Mayor Rick Meehan. “It’ll help reduce the problems but it still provides a safety net, so if a parent wants to make sure their son or daughter has transportation while they’re here, that cost is still only $5.� According to city Public Works Director Hal Adkins, Play it Safe gave out roughly 7,000 wristbands last year, creating a potential $35,000 in revenue. However, Adkins said his estimate was that roughly half of those who took wristbands previously would still do so if a cost was involved. The $17,500 in anticipated revenue could be split, Meehan suggested, between the Play it Safe committee for the development of new events, and the Ocean City Police Department to help alleviate the cost of stationing officers on buses. “We pay $30,100 dollars for the OCPD to be on our buses. Most of that coverage is in June, I suspect,� said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. This would divide out to $4.30 per wristband in order to break even on security costs, Mitrecic noted. Since fiscal years run from July 1 to June 30, a change in policy for June of the 2014-2015 fiscal year would not actually take effect until next summer. Wristbands for the June 2014 Play it Safe program will continue to be free. Adkins noted that the city’s transportation department had already developed a plan to sell the wristbands See CITY Page 18

Pines man charged with OC hotel thefts Arrest occurs less than month after suspect hired as maintenance employee

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) A 23-year-old Ocean Pines man was arrested last Friday after allegedly stealing from an Ocean City hotel less than a month after he was hired as a maintenance man there. Cody Wayne Avery was hired March 27 to work at the mid-town hotel. On April 9, someone broke into a vending machine on the second floor, shattering the machine’s glass front and stealing several food snacks. Damage to the glass was estimated at $150 and the stolen snacks were valued at about $10.

According to the hotel’s director of security, Avery discovered the damage, notified a security officer and assisted in the cleanup. On April 10, two vending machines on the hotel’s fourth floor were tampered with or broken into. The first vending machine was missing an unknown amount of cash, but the security director estimated it was less than $100. Damage to the machine, which was been pried open, was estimated at less than $500. The second machine had been tampered with, but not opened. Its damage, although more extensive than the first machine’s damage, was estimated at less than $500. Also on April 10, a guest in one of the hotel’s rooms said she left her purse in the room while she left for about one hour. When she returned, she noticed at least $40 was missing.

The next day, the security director used the hotel’s computer equipment to view the log of key cards that has been used to enter the woman’s room. The key card issued to Avery was among them. The security director called Avery, who reportedly admitted to tampering with the vending machines. Avery also agreed to talk to him in person to handle the matter internally. When the two met, Avery said he had entered the hotel room to fix a light while the guests were present. He denied entering it when they were not present. He also denied having any involvement in the vending machine thefts and then ran from the hotel to a running vehicle in the parking lot.

The security director stood behind the vehicle and told the driver, a female, that police had already been called. The driver did not drive away. Avery was charged with first-degree burglary, three counts of malicious destruction of property under $1,000 and three counts of theft of less than $100. At police headquarters, a detective searched Avery’s wallet and found Suboxone, a prescription medicine used for the treatment of opioid dependence. During an interview with police, Avery said he was not taking any medication and did not produce or mention a prescription for Suboxone. He was then charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

City to ask for $5 bus pass fee Continued from Page 17 some years ago, although the council at the time did not go through with it. Wristbands would be sold at the tram stations at the north and south ends of the Boardwalk, and council suggested that Adkins also have sales at the Boardwalk information booths at Caroline Street as well as at other city offices. Mitrecic also suggested that

voucher coupons be issued at the Play it Safe events, so that only those participating in the program would be eligible to purchase a wristband. “That would be their ID to get a wristband…instead of checking student IDs or driver’s licenses,” Mitrecic said. “It takes the burden of proof of the transportation department,” agreed Council President Lloyd Martin

Five juveniles were arrested during the weekend in connection with the theft of Freon from an unoccupied home in Ocean Pines. According to the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, the juveniles would steal Freon from air conditioning units of homes they knew to be unoccupied for the season. In last weekend’s theft, the juveniles used trash bags to store the Freon. They pulled the hose from the

air conditioning unit, which allows the Freon to flow freely into the bag. After filling bags with Freon, they tie the bags. Huffing, as the practice is known, takes place when a person inhales from a bag. Sometimes, they inhale Freon to the point that they get high or they pass out. When inhaling the Freon, people are replacing oxygen their brain requires to function with a gas. Exposure to Freon has led to several documented cases of death, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Citizens are asked to keep a check on their homes and their neighbors’ homes for people near air conditioning units. Any suspicious activity should be reported to the Sheriff’s Office at 410-632-1111 or any local police department.

Pocomoke resident gets 10 years prison time with all but one year suspended

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 11, 2014) A 22-year-old Pocomoke man was sentenced April 3 to 10 years in prison, with all but one year suspended for the rape of a preteen girl who became pregnant. David Dewayne Dickerson, 22, of Pocomoke City, was charged with second-degree rape and third-degree sex offense for acts that occurred between March 1 and April 30, 2010. Dickerson, who was 17 at the time, had consensual intercourse with a girl who was 11 or possibly just turned 12,

although the girl could not legally give consent because of her young age. She was five months pregnant when she learned of the pregnancy. In March 2013, the Bureau of Support Enforcement took DNA samples that established that Dickerson was the father of the girl’s child. The girl said she grew up with Dickerson, but did not know how old he was when they had sex and she believed that he did not know how old she was. She also told an investigator that the sex was consensual and Dickerson did not give her any drugs or alcohol, according to the charging document. She gave birth to a child Dec. 12, 2009. Because her birthday is in midApril, “this would have made her 11 or

possibly just turned 12 at the time she conceived,” according to that charging document. Second-degree rape may be charged if the victim is under the age of 14 and the person performing the sex act is at least four years older than the victim. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill last year, Dickerson pleaded guilty to second-degree rape. He will serve the unsuspended portion of his sentence in the Worcester County jail. After his release, he will be on supervised probation for 18 months. Because second-degree rape is a crime of violence, Dickerson must serve at least 50 percent of his sentence. Work release was authorized at the discretion of the warden.

Miller was reportedly screaming and cursing and when the officer tried to arrest her for disorderly conduct, she pushed his left arm. The officer then threw her to the ground and handcuffed her, according to the charging document.

City now back in budgetary black with parking boosts Council approves inclusion of anticipated revenues from resort’s paid lots By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Following the problematic shortfall in the transportation fund earlier this month, the city is back in the budgetary black this week with an $85,000 surplus due to additional expense cuts and parking revenue boosts. Although an ordinance formally authorizing the changes will still have to be passed, council approved the inclusion of anticipated revenues from paid parking in the lots at City Hall and the Public Safety Building, as well as a 50-cent rate increase on Fridays at the inlet parking lot, and the resale of vacant spaces on the Fourth of July. Briefly after the draft 2014-2015 fiscal year budget was presented to council two weeks ago, city staff discovered that the revenue increase in the transportation fund had been over-estimated by $979,000, creating a significant budget gap. That shortfall was largely closed by cutting over a half-million dollars from the city’s street paving fund, and another quarter-million form

canal dredging. Additional revenue boosts and expenditure cuts made by council late last week fully closed the gap and actually overshot the break-even point by $85,000. That money will be reallocated to street paving, which will now have roughly $1.4 million, still short of the $2 million needed annually to catch up on the more than $40 million in street repairs the city will have coming over the next two decades. The largest revenue boost, $38,000, was realized by increasing the Friday rate at the inlet lot. Currently, in-season parking at the lot costs $2.50 per hour on weekdays and $3 on weekends. Given the Friday demand leading up to the weekends, Ocean City Public Work Director Hal Adkins said the most effective way to raise more money at the lot would be to charge $3 per hour on Fridays as well as Saturdays and Sundays. Further, adding meters to the City Hall parking lot and the southeast corner of the Public Safety Building at 65th Street will add $15,000 and $7,500, respectively. The meters will only be in effect outside normal business hours, as only those using the buildings may park there during See PAID Page 24

Some concern moves may open door to restrictions on resort’s downtown growth By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) The Ocean City Development Corporation’s latest proposed revision of the city’s downtown design code, currently making its way through the Planning and Zoning Commission, would call for centralized plans for storm water and waste management. Some concern was heard that the plans would open the door for undue restriction on downtown growth, or that the storm water plan could turn into a soft roll-out of the state’s

dreaded stormwater utility policy. “I just want it to stay voluntary, and I think this goes down the road to make it mandatory when it may not be in everybody’s interest,” said Commissioner Lauren Taylor. Although OCDC is a private, nonprofit group, it is authorized by the city to make formal reviews and recommendations of the city’s land use and development policy when it comes to the downtown area. Already, OCDC Executive Director Glenn Irwin said, centralized trash setups have proved fruitful by eliminating the need for each individual parcel of land to have its own dumpster and access plan for city pickups. “A lot of times, collection of trash drives the site plan, which should not be the case but unfortunately has been,” Irwin said. By formally recognizing those locations with integrated trash plans, the city could offer incentives – such as reducing the amount of required parking for a site, a frequent issue when grandfathered sites wish to expand their usage. The same philosophy would apply to a “master plan” for storm water drainage – but that initiative would involve the xtra baggage of looming state regulations. Last year, Maryland began requiring some communities – not yet Ocean City - to create a storm water utility to deal with drainage issues. The city currently charges environmental impact fees for new developments which create impervious surfaces, which lead to increased runoff during rains. However, the town does not yet charge a recurring fee pegged to the cost of the city’s storm drainage system upgrades, which is what the state would require under the so-called “rain tax.” “That is one possible way of how to pay for storm water master plan improvements,” said Planning and Community Development Director Matt Margotta. “We currently have a plan, but perhaps it’s not working as well as it should. We’re talking about looking See OCDC Page 28

Twistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gymnast Cade Solito gets set for nationals

OCDC code revision calls for trash, stormwater planning Continued from Page 26 at the system and upgrading it.â&#x20AC;? In its current guise, Margotta said, the plan is not geared toward charging a stormwater tax and is more geared toward determining the standards that each property must adhere to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility is that, at some point, we need to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come off that property and onto ours, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to filtrate it or something like that,â&#x20AC;? Margotta said. However, the proposed language that would allow OCDC and the city to â&#x20AC;&#x153;create a master planâ&#x20AC;? for both storm water and trash collection was a broad stroke for the commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a master plan, it suggests everyone has to do it,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;create,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; that means weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

creating something that we may not want,â&#x20AC;? said Commission Chair Pam Buckley, who suggested the language be changed to read â&#x20AC;&#x153;promoteâ&#x20AC;? instead. OCDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other major requested revision was to allow electronic signage slightly further south than had previously been permitted, down to the north side of North Division Street. Signs could be no larger than 12 square feet, and could not change message any more than once in five seconds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we should be deciding tonight,â&#x20AC;? Buckley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole lifestyle change for this area.â&#x20AC;? The commission vote to move the revision forward without the signage change, and with the revised master plan language. A public hearing on electronic signs is upcoming.

How Much You Wanna Bet? Everyone has three estate plans: the one they think they have, the one they want to have, and the one they really have. The irony is that most people prefer to keep it that way, to not know what they don’t know rather than find out otherwise. “I have it all figured out,” the man said, when asked if he wanted his estate plan reviewed, “I leave our son the business, the vacation home to our daughter, and together they will take care of their mother. What could go wrong?” Man dies. Value of business and houses are over the estate tax limit but his will says that taxes are to be paid by the estate. Mom still owns the family home and some rental property but no liquid assets and she has no funds to pay the estate taxes. Son refuses to pay his share of the taxes and now mom and son are not talking; meanwhile, daughter files for divorce and husband demands half the value of the vacation home that daughter put in their joint names. All the stress exacerbated mom’s dementia. Now in addition to being out of money from paying the estate taxes on assets distributed to her children, she has no funds left for nursing home care. Maybe the man didn’t have it all figured out, maybe a few dollars spent on a review could have pre-

vented all of this. Perhaps he just didn’t realize all the risk. Risk is defined as the probability or threat of damage, loss or other negative occurrence that is caused by a vulnerability that may be avoided by preemptive action. In many cases, preemptive action may be no more than a review of your situation with a knowledgeable counselor. Are you willing to bet the house because you think you already know what is possible? If you cannot say with utmost confidence that your planning will protect your assets from estate taxes, from remarriage, from nursing home costs, from your child’s failed marriage, and from whatever else you don’t want to happen or if you still think that you have to spend it all to qualify for Medicaid, then you owe it to yourself and your family to find out what you don’t know that you don’t know. John F. Robbert graduated from Tulane University School of Law and has prepared wills and revocable trusts for hundreds of clients. He concentrates his practice in estate and Medicaid planning in both Maryland and Delaware. Not only does he have over 25 years of experience in assisting clients develop a plan that addresses the clients’ unique circumstances, he is also there to help implement the plan when life happens – incapacity, dementia, and death.

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) A pitch by NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility to partner with the Town of Ocean City for rocket launch-based tourism met a warm reception from the city’s Tourism Commission this week. “This would be a joint effort to promote the fact that these launches are visible and we have a great vantage point in Ocean City,” city Tourism Director Donna Abbott said. The city is anticipating setting up some type of “official viewing area” at the southern end of the Boardwalk and inlet area, she said, with the hope of attracting additional tourists for the already popular launches. Wallops is located near Chincoteague, Va., with most take-offs clearly visible from the resort roughly 40 miles away. For every rocket launch over the past year, Wallops’ visitors’ center has filled to capacity and closed on launch days, said facility public relations representative Rebecca Hudson.

“We are already kind of running out of public spaces [for viewing],” Hudson said. Wallops could provide the city with information for any promotional materials, and would also be willing to set up launch-day amenities on the Boardwalk at no charge to the town, Hudson said. These include a countdown box – built by a facility intern from Stephen Decatur High School – which broadcasts a countdown signal to phones and other devices within 200 to 300 yards. Wallops also has a giant inflatable screen that could be used to show footage from the control room. “I could also send a trained docent to answer any questions from your guests,” Hudson said. Council Secretary and Tourism Commission Chair Mary Knight noted that the city already heavily promotes its series of “free family events,” of which a rocket launch viewing could definitely be a standout. “To say we offer a ‘free family rocket launch’ would be spectacular,” Knight said. Wallops’ next launch is scheduled for May 6, although Hudson said this would likely be pushed back due to delays in coordinated launches at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

State superintendent gives approval of waiver; last day of classes set for June 13

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) With 10 school days lost to snow this winter, Worcester County Public Schools have had to make a series of changes to the 20132014 school calendar. In what it hopes is the last of those adjustments, the county Board of Education approved what president Bob Rothermel called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Version 3.0â&#x20AC;? of the calendar at its Tuesday meeting. In the latest calendar, the last day of school will be Friday, June 13 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just one day behind the original closing date of June 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very good news,â&#x20AC;? said Barbara Witherow, Coordinator of Public Relations and Special Programs for the schools, who also facilitates school calendar development. With three inclement weather days built into the original 2013-2014 school calendar, the Worcester County Board of Education was tasked with recouping the other seven days students spent home during a series of snow storms this winter. It added two half-days March 28, originally a professional workday that students had off, and April 17, the first day of spring break. Days the Maryland State Police and State Highway Administration declared a snow emergency plan, which urges vehicles without snow tires or chains to stay off the roads, were eligible for waiver requests. The state superintendent of schools approved those requests for Jan. 29 and March 3, 17 and 26 in Worcester County.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have modified your school calendar by opening schools (additional days),â&#x20AC;? Maryland Superintendent Lillian Lowery wrote in her response to the request. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the modificationsâ&#x20AC;Ś I am pleased to advise you that I am approving your waiver request.â&#x20AC;? As Witherow noted, not all schools in the state that requested such waivers received them. But, because Worcester had already made efforts to recoup time lost to snow and its hours surpass the state minimum requirements, Lowery approved Superintendent Dr. Jerry Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although calculating the number of days missed and recouped seems like simple math, the effects of the inclement weather are much more challenging, resulting in unavoidable disruptions to valuable instruction time,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everyone is thankful that the signs of spring are blossoming everywhere and we can move forward with a regular schedule.â&#x20AC;? Because of the waiver request and additional half-days, Worcester students will only attend one extra day of school this summer. The last day of school is set for Friday, June 13. Wednesday, June 11, will be the last full day of classes, with June 12 and 13 slated as halfdays for students. High school students will take final exams those two final days. County students will have attended classes a total of 176 days during the 2013-2014 school year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four days shy of the 180-minimum requirement mandated by the state, thanks to the waiver approval for four snow days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just hoping that we are finished with school closings due to snow,â&#x20AC;? Witherow said.

Titanium-Wrecks wins world title chance; now needs to collect St. Louis trip money

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) After earning top honors at two regional competitions, Worcester Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rookie robotics team is in a fundraising frenzy for an international contest next week. Team Titanium-Wrecks, comprised of 19 high school students from across the county, earned its spot at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) global championships in St. Louis April 23-26 after a great showing at two regional competitions this spring. Competing against around 50 teams, many with more than 100 members each, Team T-Wrecks walked away from a Fairfax, Va. competition in March with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rookie All Starâ&#x20AC;? award, earning a spot at the global championships. In what team mentor Paul Suplee described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cinderella story,â&#x20AC;? the team and its robot Buttercup (named for some creative use of butter trays in the design) took home the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rookie Inspiration Awardâ&#x20AC;? a week later from a College Park contest, where they also advanced to the final round of

competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made it into the finals as a rookie team, which is unheard of,â&#x20AC;? Suplee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are all three big milestones for a rookie team.â&#x20AC;? FIRST robotics hosts the contest each year, challenging robotics teams across the globe to build a machine worthy of competition in just six weeks. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aerial assist challenge pits two teams of three robots each against each other in a high-flying contest, where they try to pass, block and ultimately shoot two-foot yoga balls into a five-foot-high goal. Team T-Wrecks decided on a defensive design with Buttercup, which uses jointed arms to block shots up to 9 feet in the air. In addition to repairs needed after two weeks of competition, the team is working to fund its trip to the championships next week, which will run it $15,000. Members are going door-to-door, accepting donations online and hosting a fundraiser as Rommelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ace Home Center on 68th Street in Ocean City this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to meet their goal. As of Wednesday, the team had raised $8,300 of that goal, which includes the paid $5,000 entry fee for See ROBOTICS Page 33

Third graders go from students to teachers Children lead lessons and share social skills with Showell kindergarteners

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) This school year, third-grade teacher at Showell Elmentary School Juliana Bobik has taken her students into Kristen Pike’s kindergarten classroom to lead lessons and share social skills. The monthly meetings have not only boosted academic performance, but provided a source of self esteem for the older students-gone-teachers and new social footing for the younger learners, they said. “We could stand back and just watch them (the third graders) take the instruction into their own hands,” Bobik said. “It also set a purpose for their learning (when they had to teach other students).” The new classroom helped her students assess their own work, catching

errors on the spot and learning to be more specific in their instructions for the kindergarten class, she said. “It definitely taught them how to be a teacher, how to be a leader, how to get your kids excited about learning,” she added. “I saw a great increase of self-esteem, especially for students with disabilities.” For the kindergarteners, the lessons were more social in nature. “I knew that the kindergarteners would enjoy the experience, but I don’t think I realized the relationships they would build,” Pike said. “They not only got to bond with a third grade teacher, but with a third grade class.” That gave the school’s newer students a “big brother” or “big sister” in the school, she said, where mentor relationships formed organically across the classmates. At the same time, Bobik’s older students learned patience while working with their kindergarten counterparts and their relationships

Looking for a new home?

actually settled some behavioral problems she’s seen in the third grade classroom alone. Leading younger students helps cement concepts her third graders are learning in a “learning by teaching” model, Bobik said. The kindergarteners are seeing skills and materials they wouldn’t normally use at such an early age, too. All of that helps them work toward meeting the new Common Core State Standards at both grade levels, improving reading, writing and even math, for example.

When Bobik and Pike presented their collaborative project to the Board of Education at its Tuesday meeting, the program was the center of praise. “Being creative is excellent,” board member Robert Hulburd said. “This seems rather unique,” Board President Bob Rothermel said. “Can we expand it somehow?” For now, the cross-class collaboration exists only between the two classes, “but I do see how this could be included in all of our grade levels,” Showell Principal Diane Shorts said.

School Board discusses PARCC field testing Security improvements also among issues on agenda for panel during meeting By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) In addition to approving a new version of the school calendar (see standalone story), the Worcester County Board of Education discussed the following during its April 15 meeting:

PARCC Field Testing: With the full implementation of the Common Core State Standards in classrooms across the country this year, schools are preparing for the rollout of the tests that will measure student progress starting in the 20142015 school year.

More than 300 Worcester students in elementary to high school took PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) field tests this spring, said Superintendent Dr. Jerry Wilson. Across the state, approximately 6,500 students are taking the pilot version of the test, providing feedback and helping work out problems before the tests launch next fall, said John White, chief of staff for the Office of the State Superintendent of Schools .“We’re learning how things work and reports were quite favorable in terms of how students respond to the test as well as the administration of the test… electronically,” Wilson said. Half of the students taking the practice tests in this county took them on computers — the eventual

goal for all PARCC schools — and half took them using traditional paperand-pencil, he said. Outside of Maryland, 12 states and the District of Columbia are issuing the field tests this spring. Learn more about PARCC testing at www.parcconline.org/field-test. Safety Improvement Program: In the wake of the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Worcester County Public Schools ramped up school security. After a host improvements — including adding patrolling deputies to each campus, new cameras surveying the schools and electronic entry systems — last year, the board approved the second phase of the school safety project. The additional measures include installing a new fire alarm system at Stephen Decatur High School; installing new digital security cameras on school buses; upgrading school

bus radio communication systems; installing a new security system at the schools’ central office in Newark; and replacing security cameras at many of the county’s schools. In all, they bring a price tag of $266,332, to come in equal parts from state and local funding, which must be approved by the Worcester County Commissioners. On the 2013 annual Parent Survey, almost two-thirds of parents ranked Worcester County schools’ safety and order as “excellent,” with nearly every parent giving the subject at least a positive rating. Pocomoke Partition Wall: The board approved Modern Door & Equipment Sales, Inc.’s bid of $51,489 to replace the 38-year-old partition wall at Pocomoke Elementary School. Maryland’s Aging Schools Program will fund nearly the full cost of the new wall, $48,003. The remaining $3,486 will come from local funding.

Surfers discover man’s body on Assateague area beach By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2104) Two surfers found the body of a man on the beach at Assateague Island National Seashore on Tuesday afternoon. The surfers, from Baltimore, made the discovery at about 2:30 p.m. in the national park just north of the state park, said Chief Ranger Ted Morlock. The name of the deceased was

being withheld pending notification of next of kin, but Morlock said a vehicle registered to the man was found in the parking lot of Assateague State Park. The vehicle bore Georgia tags. The case is being investigated as a possible suicide. Lt. Ed Schreier of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office said a gun was found at the scene. The man’s body was taken to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Baltimore for an autopsy.

COUNTY BRIEFS Continued from Page 37

Housing rehab grant The commissioners scheduled a public hearing for May 6 for a housing rehabilitation grant application. The county currently has one open housing rehabilitation grant through the Community Development Block Grant Program. That $300,000 grant, which was received in 2012, was for

the rehabilitation of 18 owner-occupied homes. The current grant term ends June 30, at which point all funds will have be exhausted and 25 homes will be rehabilitated. Housing administrator Jo Ellen Bynum asked to submit a grant application on behalf of the county for $300,000 for the rehabilitation of an additional 18 owner-occupied homes. The public hearing is for that request.

Worcester Prep tennis teams get wins over Decatur

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Stephen Decatur junior Brendan McKenzie makes contact during Monday's game against Mardela in Berlin. He singled to score a run. Decatur won 13-2 in five innings.

Decatur baseball team ‘in a groove’ By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (April 18, 2014) The Stephen Decatur baseball team shut out the visiting North Caroline Bulldogs, 10-0, in five innings last Friday. “Right from the get-go we were able to come out full throttle on [North Caroline],” said Decatur Assistant Coach Tyler Riley. Head Coach Rich Ferro missed the game to attend a friend’s wedding. “We were able offensively to get into a groove right away. [Junior pitcher] Grant [Donahue] was throwing strikes which always sets the tone for our offense. He’s on and off [the mound] really quick at a good pace and we’re right back in here and able to hit the ball hard.” Riley said scoring was balanced as the Seahawks tallied at least one run in each inning. Donahue threw a complete game. He struck out nine, allowed one hit and walked three in five innings (slaughter rule). Juniors Justin Meekins and senior Jake Hickman both went 3-for-3 with three RBIs. “The guys are in a groove right now and we’re just going to ride it

Senior Nick Bennett was solid on the mound for Decatur, Monday. He struck out seven, allowed seven hits and walked two. At the plate, he went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI.

(April 18, 2014) The Worcester Prep and Stephen Decatur tennis teams went head-to-head twice in less than a week and it was the Mallards who came out on top in both match-ups. The squads first meeting of the season was last Friday. The girls play on Worcester’s courts in Berlin, while the boys competed on Decatur’s. Worcester’s Lady Mallards earned victories in all seven matches. Junior Tatjana Kondraschow (8-1), sophomore Sonya Walker (8-4), senior captain Hannah Esham (8-4), junior Mattie Maull (8-2) and sophomore Isabel Carulli (8-2) scored first through fifth singles wins. Senior captain Lydia Pritchard and first doubles partner, junior Paige Evans outscored their opponents, 8-1. Second doubles pair, junior Natalie Twilley and sophomore Erika Smith, shut out their competition, 8-0. “They were playing great after a slow start. Tatjana had a fabulous game at No.1 [and] second doubles are playing really well together,” said Prep Coach Cyndee Hudson. “I knew we had a strong team since I had only one senior last year, but I’m really pleased with how well they handle themselves during each match. I believe nearly everyone has gotten down at some point, but they can deal with it and recover this year. We just need to continue this for the remainder of the season.” Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood said he didn’t think the Lady Seahawks played their best tennis Friday. “We seemed to commit a lot of unforced errors, that’s what ultimately lead to our demise,” he said. “To have a better match, and a chance of winning on Wednesday, we need to limit our errors and capitalize on Worcester Prep’s errors.” Worcester’s boys’ squad also won, 7-0. “The depth and experience of the Worcester Prep boys’ tennis team proved to be too much for the Stephen Decatur netters,” said Prep Coach Keith Coleman. Captains Quinn Lukas, a junior, and senior Chase Schmehling took their first and second singles matches, 8-2 and 8-5, respectively. Worcester junior Erik Zorn and Decatur senior Chase Eslin battled in their third singles match. Zorn, like Schmehling, “fought through early lapses in consistency,” Coleman said, and he prevailed, winning 9-7 over Eslin. See WORCESTER Page 46

Decatur tops NC, 10-0, and Mardela, 13-2 Continued from Page 42 ahead, 5-1. The home team sent 13 batters to the plate in the third inning. Junior Austin Dundore singled to lead things off. He scored off a Donahue hit. Junior Ryan Bennett sent the ball over the fence to increase Decatur’s advantage to 8-1. Senior Andrew Borradaile was walked, then senior Nick Bennett doubled. Sophomore Zach Adams was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Meekins was also hit by a pitch to bring home Borradaile.

Senior Chase Coursey popped up to second base for the team’s first out. Hickman stepped up to the plate and doubled, scoring Bennett, Adams and Meekins to give Decatur a 12-1 lead. Junior Brendan McKenzie drove in the Seahawks’ 13th run of the game in the third inning. “They had the lead and then we came back. Anytime a team kind of explodes with a bunch of runs it’s hard for the defense to stay in it…we jumped on them pretty quick,” Ferro said. “It took some time for

them to get used to the pace of the pitch because he wasn’t throwing very hard. We just had to be disciplined.” Mardela added a run in the top of the fourth. “They came out and played well,” Ferro said after Decatur’s 13-2 fiveinning victory. “They communicated, they swung the bats well, they stayed back and hit the ball the other way and they didn’t try to do too much at the plate.” Nick Bennett threw all five innings. He struck out seven, allowed

seven hits and walked two. At the plate, he went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. Coursey had two hits and two RBIs. “We’re going to start playing teams a second time around, so we’ll see how much we’ve improved,” Ferro said. “Other teams are getting better too, so we’ve got to make sure we’re staying focused [and] working hard in practice…” Decatur is scheduled to take a trip to Snow Hill Tuesday to play the Eagles at 4 p.m.

Mallards go toe-to-toe with Dragons, but come up short

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (April 18, 2014) Despite his team falling to the Middleburg Academy Dragons of Virginia, 14-9, last Friday in Berlin, Worcester Prep boys’ lacrosse Coach Kevin Gates had only positive comments about the experience. “Yes, it was a tough loss, as any loss is tough, but as losses go, I came away from that game pretty pumped up about the rest of our season,” Gates said. “I think the kids feel the same way. We played a very good, veteran team toe-to-toe and we went punch-forpunch with them. We didn’t lose, we just ran out of time. If we play like that for the rest of the season, I like our chances.” Senior Thomas Buas put Worcester on the board two and a half minutes into the game. Middleburg answered two minutes later. Sophomore captain Wyatt Richins gave the Mallards the go-ahead goal with 4:21 remaining in the first quarter. The Dragons tied it up before the end of the quarter. Junior Sam Deeley scored 23 seconds into the second quarter. The visiting Middleburg squad struck twice to pull ahead 4-3. Senior captain Luke Payne netted two shots, the second with 1:01 left in the quarter, to put the Mallards back on top. Sophomore Ross Dickerson won the ensuing face-off and scored with 54.5 seconds on the clock. The Mallards led 6-4 at the break. During the halftime talk with their players, Gates said the coaching staff “‘told them to keep their foot on the gas.’ We played a great first half and we just wanted to keep it going.” The Dragons gained some momentum when the Mallards received a twominute non-releasable penalty in the third quarter, Gates said. Middleburg outscored the Prep team

4-2 in the third to tie the game, 8-8. The Dragons added six goals in the fourth quarter and held the Mallards to one. “They were a good team who just started playing better then we did,” Gates said. Deeley led Worcester with two goals and two assists. Richins and Payne logged two goals and one assist apiece. Buas had two goals and Dickerson netted one. Dickerson won 10 of 20 faceoffs. Senior goalie Isaiah Nsah came up with some big saves. He stopped 25 Middleburg shots. “He kept us in the game. He and Ross played lights out,” Gates said. The Mallards we originally scheduled to play the St. Maria Goretti Gaels on Tuesday, but because of rain in the forecast, the game was moved to Monday. The teams battled on the Mallards’ field in Berlin and it was the Prep squad who prevailed, winning 11-10 in overtime. “It wasn’t our best game, but we dug deep and persevered,” Gates said. “This one would have hurt if it didn’t go our way.” Gates said the Mallards got off to a slow start and were not playing well as they fell behind, 2-0. Richins cut the lead to one, but the Gaels soon responded to go up 3-1. Goals by Payne, senior captain Jack Marshall and sophomore Staton Whaley gave Worcester a 4-3 advantage at the end of the first quarter. “We started to play better, but we let them hang around,” Gates said. Payne boosted the Mallards’ lead to 5-3 in the second quarter. St. Maria Goretti cut the advantage to one, but Deeley answered, providing the Prep team with a two-goal cushion. The Gaels netted two shots before halftime to even the score 6-6 at the break. Payne tallied the only goal of the third quarter. Deeley boosted the Mallards’ advantage to two, but St. Maria Goretti responded with two of its own. Richins put Worcester ahead by one, but it didn’t last as the Gaels made it 99. Richins tallied a goal and just as it looked like it would be enough to win, the visitors scored with 1:44 left in the game to force overtime. Richins notched the game-winner in the extra period. He finished the game with four goals and four assists. “That’s a pretty good day,” Gates said. “He kept trying to get everyone going. He’s like a coach on the field.” Payne chipped in with three goals, Whaley had one goal and two assists and Deeley contributed two goals. Marshall logged one goal and one assist. Dickerson won 15 of 20 face-offs. He also scooped up 10 ground balls. Nsah recorded 13 saves. The Calverton Cougars are scheduled to come to Berlin Saturday for a 1 p.m. game against Worcester.

Calverton scores first goal of game, but WP earns win

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (April 18, 2014) The Calverton Cougars scored the first goal last Friday in Berlin, but the Worcester Prep girls’ lacrosse team turned up the intensity and prevailed, winning the game, 12-6. “Calverton got the first goal on us. It’s the first time we’ve been down all season, so I think that shook us up a bit, but our girls rose to the occasion and we ended up beating them solidly,” said Prep Coach Allie Gamble. The Cougars scored about five minutes into the game to take a 1-0 lead. Senior Kristen Shriver evened it at 1-1 two minutes later. Junior Sophie Brennan gave Worcester the go-ahead goal with 14:35 left in the first half. Senior captain Lilly DiNardo boosted the Mallards’ advantage to two goals 18 seconds later. Calverton cut Worcester’s lead to one, but goals by junior Molly Soule and senior Cynthia Delaney put the home team on top, 5-2, with about 10 minutes remaining before halftime. The visiting Cougars tallied their third goal at the 7:25 mark. Seniors Alie Greer, a team captain, and Meg Lingo netted shots to give Worcester a 7-3 lead going into the halftime break. Calverton tallied a goal two minutes into the second half. The home team answered with a goal by senior McKenna Shanahan, but the Cougars struck twice to cut the Mallards’ lead to 8-6. Goals by Shriver, DiNardo, Greer and Soule in the final 11 minutes secured the victory for Worcester. “I was really proud of our team. We didn’t have much competition early in the week so it was definitely hard getting back into the rhythm of things, but I think we did really well and we kept our composure,” said DiNardo, who finished the game with two goals. Shriver (four assists), Soule (one assist) and Greer (four draws) each scored twice. Lingo, Delaney, Brennan and Shanahan (one assist) tallied one each. Senior goalie Maddie Pilchard stopped seven Calverton shots. “I think we did really well. I was happy with how the girls stepped up and started playing with aggression,” Gamble said. “They’re just a great group of girls. They work hard and they want to win so they’ll do anything to step up to the plate when they need to.” The Mallards are scheduled to participate in the Karl Wolf Girls’ Lacrosse Tournament on Saturday at Howard High School in Elkridge. Worcester is set to face Wilde Lake while Reservoir and Howard go headto-head at 11 a.m. The winners and losers of both games will compete at 2:30 p.m.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (April 18, 2014) Although it wasn’t their best performance, the Stephen Decatur boys’ lacrosse team still managed to pull out an 18-4 victory over the Kent County Trojans last Friday at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin. The Seahawks netted seven shots in the first quarter. They went into the halftime break with a 12-4 advantage. Decatur added five goals in the third quarter and one in the fourth. Junior goalie Will Hastings, a team captain, made two saves. Junior captain Corey Gwin led Decatur with eight goals and three assists. Matt LeCompte, a junior, See REST Page 47

Worcester Prep sophomore Sonya Walker eyes her spot on the court during the April 11 battle in Berlin with Stephen Decatur.

Worcester Prep junior Kyle Chandler returns a hit during last Friday's competition against Stephen Decatur.

Worcester wins tennis battles with Decatur Continued from Page 42 Sophomore Jason Cook and junior Kyle Chandler took down their fourth and fifth singles opponents, 8-4 and 80, respectively. Worcester’s first doubles duo, senior Daniel Rosa and junior Chris Choy, and second doubles team, sophomore Alex Choy and freshman Zach Wilson, both

won, 8-2. Decatur Coach Steve Berquist thought Eslin and senior Zach Elmer, who faced Schmehling, had good matches. Before the Decatur and Worcester tennis teams met on Wednesday, the Mallards first competed against Pocomoke on Monday.

The Prep teams both won 7-0 on their home courts. Several Lady Mallards were competing in their first varsity contests of the season. Winning their first through fifth singles matches were Walker (8-5), Esham (8-0), Carulli (8-1) and juniors Fiona Reid (first match, 8-0) and Elena La-

Plante (first match, 8-4). Freshmen Eva Parks and Stormy McGuiness made their first doubles debut and won, 8-1. Junior Michelle Curtis and sophomore Hannah Arrington shut out their second doubles competition, 8-0, in their first match of the year. “Only the top three girls were in my regular line-up. I was impressed with how well the newcomers handled themselves,” Hudson said. “Two got down early, but came right back to edge ahead and stay ahead. We discussed maintaining focus and being determined once the match had started. I thought they did a great job of that.” The Worcester boys’ team won 6-1. Lukas (8-6), Schmehling (8-2), Zorn (8-6), Cook (8-1) and Chandler (8-0) were successful in their first through fifth singles matches. “The Worcester Prep boys’ tennis team carried all five singles matches to seal a home win against the Pocomoke Warriors,” Coleman said. Freshman Nik Moondra, who was also playing in his first high school match, and Wilson, edged out their second doubles opponents, 8-3. The Mallards and Seahawks took the courts for round two on Wednesday. The Worcester boys’ squad, playing on its courts, was competing without an injured Lukas. The Mallards won, 6-1. Because of his absence, everyone played up a spot in the line-up. Schmehling (8-6) and Zorn (8-2) topped their first and second singles competition. Elsin earned Decatur’s lone victory, 8-3, at third singles. Chandler and C. Choy took their fourth and fifth singles matches, 8-0 and 8-4. Rosa and A. Choy edged out their first doubles opponents, 8-6. Wilson and Moondra logged an 8-5 win at second doubles. “I thought we played well considering we didn’t have our No. 1 singles player See WORCESTER Page 47

Business owners expect big things Berlin merchants welcome boost due to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; title (April 18, 2014) Businesses in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Townâ&#x20AC;? are bracing for an increase in traffic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hopefully â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in revenue following the recent designation from Budget Travel magazine. Several area business owners and workers sounded off on their expectations during last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Town Celebration in Berlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make opportunities for the town that the town is prepared for; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been prepared and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Town,â&#x20AC;? said Bryan Brushmiller, owner of Burley Oak Brewing Company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The infrastructure is here, the restaurants are here and people are just starting to discover it.â&#x20AC;? Austin Widdowson, owner of Re:Fresh Media, believes the designation will help validate local businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely lost work before because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in a big city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in L.A. or New York â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Town,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the community that always made this place what it is. Of all the places Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in my life Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a community actually come together like this.â&#x20AC;? Debbie Frene, owner of Victorian Charm, saw an immediate boost in her bottom line during the celebration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The turnout is fabulous,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve almost had more people than we could handle. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sold more than 200 T-shirts today, so we have no complaints at all.â&#x20AC;? Many believe the initial increase in traffic is due largely to residents in bordering towns who are finally taking notice of their neighbor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bringing a lot of people

to this town that have never been here before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even locals who maybe live in Ocean Pines or Snow Hill who never think to come to Berlin,â&#x20AC;? said Blair Falck Parsons, owner of Ta Da. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last couple of weeks weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a lot of people say they were driving down Route 50 and saw the signs and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;well, we have to go now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coolest Small Town.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see people not only from Worcester County, but from other counties coming together to celebrate such a great accomplishment,â&#x20AC;? said Erin Bilenki, a bartender at Maryland Wine Bar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be good â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lot of people that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know we were here stopped in today and we had a great day and we hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come back.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always known we were the coolest small town; now the world knows.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Terry Sexton, owner of The Treasure Chest â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome to bring people to a small town where people can find out what Berlin is all about,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Andrews, manager at Culverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Antiques. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of tucked away, off the road from Ocean City and Chincoteague and such, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get more people in the doors and maybe be able to support more businesses and more services.â&#x20AC;? Sherry Gamble, owner of The Main Street Enchanted Tea Room, noted that while the increase in business is welcome, most of the regional and national coverage has failed to mention the fact that Berlin tends to be relatively slow during the winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was March and it was still snowing the week we were voted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Coolest Small Town,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next Wednesday there were people in town and hardly anything was open and I

said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what brings you down here?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They were from Pennsylvania and the town next to them was the coolest small town last year, so they came down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The articles didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention that this is a resort town in the winter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were wandering around looking for things that were open,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope they all come back. Berlin at 4 or 5 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much business here usually; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like I was in the city somewhere where people would come in at 4 p.m. to have tea after shopping. But there are certainly more people in town so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to stay open later and become the coolest tea room in town.â&#x20AC;? Jason Hagy, owner of Berlin Coffee House, hopes the town finds a way to continue its momentum throughout the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The lasting success) might depend on how often they can remind people of it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I think they should have waited until the fall when people are starting to forget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to bring them back and remind them. I really think we should do (the celebration) again in the fall just to remind people.â&#x20AC;? The last time the town saw this much traffic was following the filming of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Runaway Brideâ&#x20AC;? more than a decade ago. Many expect a similar surge in tourism with the notable exception that this time people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coming to experience a fantasy or a fiction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming to see what really makes the town tick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always known we were the coolest small town; now the world knows,â&#x20AC;? said Terry Sexton, owner of The Treasure Chest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once people come to Berlin they love it and they come back. So I think this will only help more people to want to come to Berlin. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to what we saw with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Runaway Brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but in a whole different way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a Hollywood this time; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really life.â&#x20AC;?

Dispose of hazardous waste in county, Sat. Worcester residents may rid households of old electronics and batteries

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Worcester County residents may dispose of their unwanted electronics and household hazardous waste, including batteries, at the West Ocean City Park and Ride tomorrow, Saturday, but are advised to not put 9-volt batteries in a bag with other batteries. The National Fire Prevention Association’s new safety sheet on 9-volt batteries states they can be a fire hazard if not stored safely or disposed of with care. The 9-volt batteries can be dangerous because the positive and negative posts are in close proximity. If a metal object touches those two posts, it can cause a short circuit, which can make enough heat to cause a fire. Even weak 9-volt batteries can cause a fire. The batteries have started fires in trashcans after they

Poor economy has impact on area recycling efforts

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Recycling revenue dropped dramatically for Worcester County in fiscal year 2013, rebounded this fiscal year and is expected to drop just slightly in the coming fiscal year. During the same time period, the amount of recyclables remained about the same. “It’s the economy, period,” Ron Taylor, the county’s recycling manager, told the Worcester County Commissioners during their April 8 budget work session. In fiscal year 2013, recycling revenue was $303,000 and in the current fiscal year it is expected to be $225,000. For fiscal year 2015, $222,000 is estimated. Corrugated cardboard revenue has held steady at $100,000 in all three budget years, but revenue from metal fell from $65,000 in fiscal year 2013 to an estimated $50,000 this fiscal year. That revenue is expected to drop to $40,000 in fiscal year 2015. Revenue from aluminum and bimetal cans dropped from $47,000 in fiscal year 2014 to an estimated $20,000 this fiscal year. The forecast for fiscal year 2015 rebounds to See WOR. Page 66

were discarded with other metal objects. In New Hampshire, they caused a house fire last year, according to the Fire Marshal’s Office in that state. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, 9-volt batteries should not be stored in a drawer near paper clips, coins, pens or other batteries because the potential for fire exists. They should also not be placed with other batteries in the bright orange plastic household battery collection bag distributed by the Recycling Office of the Solid Waste Division of the Worcester County Public Works Department. County staffers in that office are aware of the potential for danger and while manning a booth at the Home, Condo and Outdoor Show at the Ocean City convention center in March, Recycling Foreman Denny

Looney gave away the bags, but advised people not to put 9-volt batteries in them. The batteries should be kept in original packaging until ready for use. If they are unwrapped, but not in use, the posts should be covered with masking, duct or electrical tape. The National Fire Prevention Association also recommends covering the posts in that manner before disposing of the batteries. Batteries, other household hazardous waste and unwanted electronics may be taken to the Park and Ride from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Recycling Division of the county Public Works Department is holding the collection event in conjunction with Maryland Environmental Services and the Maryland Department of the Environment. It is restricted to Worcester

County residents. A representative of the Maryland Department of the Environment will be onsite checking vehicle registration. Clean Ventures of Baltimore will be responsible for the safe disposal of all hazardous waste. The electronics will be shipped to an electronics recycler for dismantling. Items that may be dropped off include pesticides, pool chemicals, gas and other fuels, oil-based paints, thinners and everyday hazardous wastes and electronic items such as computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, radios, televisions and VCRs. Holding the event typically costs the county about $18,000 to $19,000, but this year the cost could decrease because of an e-cycling company switch, saving $450-$550 per load.

Measure removes all limits on medical office business Current county code only permits up to four such businesses per building

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) The Worcester County Commissioners passed a bill Tuesday removing the limit on the number of businesses that may be in a medical office building in the neighborhood commercial district. The current county code permits up to four businesses of 5,000 square feet each to be in a 20,000-squarefoot building in that district. The county code does not permit one physician to have a 10,000-squarefoot office and two physicians to have two 5,000-square-foot offices in that same size building.

Attorney Mark Cropper, representing Palmer Gillis, developer of a medical office building near the North Gate of Ocean Pines, said the purpose of his requested amendment to the county code was to change the current requirement that the medical offices be sectioned off into 5,000square-foot spaces. His requested text amendment does not change anything about a site or building and the use remains the same. “I see this almost as a clarification rather than a change,” Cropper said. “It just changes how the interior of the building is utilized.” The text amendment applies only to doctors’ offices and clinics, including facilities for the incidental sale of medical supplies, equipment and preSee BILL Page 67

County potholes to be fixed with $10 million in funding State grant to help area fix deteriorating roads due to harsh winter conditions

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) The Worcester County Commissioners on Tuesday welcomed the county’s portion of a one-time $10 million state grant to fix potholes and make other road repairs necessitated by this year’s extreme winter weather. “We can certainly use it to make repairs,” Public Works Director John Tustin told the commissioners. The county’s roads have continued to deteriorate because of the snow and cold temperatures. This led to numerous potholes and the need for extensive road repairs. The exact areas that will be repaired have not been designated. Worcester’s allocation for road repairs is $252,726. Neighboring Wicomico County is allocated $298,814 and nearby Somerset County is allocated $151,188. Kent County gets $117,275, the smallest allocation, and Baltimore County gets $1,150,721, the largest. Each county must respond to the State Highway Administration that it wants the offered funds by April 17. After the SHA receives the county’s response, it will process the transfer of funds. The funds could arrive by the end of April or early May, but the second week of May is more likely. There is no restriction on when they must be spent.

Bill removes medical building office restrictions Continued from Page 66 scription drugs. The amendment also states that it “shall not permit the construction of a single retail pharmacy or medical supply and equipment establishment in excess of 5,000 square feet. “The goal is delivering health care service in the most efficient way possible,” Gillis said. County Commissioner Judy Boggs, who had worked in healthcare administration before moving to Ocean Pines, said the amendment “seems to make so much sense. This is so much more efficient that the past way of setting things up.”

Gov. Martin O’Malley had discussed the pothole funding when he addressed the legislative committee of the Maryland Association of Counties on March 28. The $10 million, he said, was initially provided in the Senate’s budget plan for fiscal year 2015, but was accelerated into the 2014 budget in the House budget plan. To be allocated this fiscal year, a specific appropriation was needed, but had not occurred at the time he spoke to the Maryland Association of Counties committee. He said, however, that he approved the appropriation to be included in a supplemental budget, paving the way for the funds to be provided in fiscal year 2014.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN

Jack’s Lobster Rolls owners Jack and JoAnn Mileskie are happy to open their new restaurant on Second Street, one building back from the Boardwalk. They launched the business April 1 with their signature dish, Maine lobster on a split-top roll topped with butter and Crabby “J” Spice.

Eatery wants customers to smile Jack’s Lobster Rolls on Second Street also offers gift shop selling ‘spikers’

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) JoAnn Mileski’s motto is, “You’re supposed to come to Ocean City with a smile on your face,” and she and her husband Jack stand testament to that. The duo opened their Jack’s Lobster Rolls on Second Street April 1 and have been dishing up their signature dish ever since. The idea is to “keep it simple,” Jack said, and with a healthy portion of Maine lobster on a split-top roll, topped with butter and with Crabby “J” Spice, he’s achieved just that. From across the bridge, the Mileskis got their inspiration from D.C.’s food trucks. JoAnn, like many, seeks out the lobster rolls that make their way across the city. Lifelong visitors to Ocean City, the couple was waiting for a similar dish to debut in in the resort, but it never did. “We didn’t see it happening, so we ran to it,” she said. The pair took to work on their signature product, using a “panel” of

For $18, customers get a lobster roll — topped with a hearty portion of sweet Maine lobster — with chips, a pickle and a drink. There’s also a fresh fruit bowl made with locally

grown produce and PB&J for kids — but the focus is on the lobster. “We make one thing and it’s very good, and that’s what we’re known for,” Jack said. “I think we’re different.” Jack’s Lobster Rolls also has an attached gift shop that sells beachSee JACK’s Page 69

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (April 18, 2014) The National Association of Realtors issued a brief recently regarding the United States Senate Finance Committee agreement to a bipartisan bill to reinstate close to 50 tax provisions that expired at the end of 2013. As stated in the brief, some of the real estate provisions included in the “extenders” package include tax relief for mortgage debt forgiveness, 15-year cost recovery for qualified leasehold improvements, election to expense certain qualified real estate property, and deduction for energy efficient commercial buildings. The bill proposes that all of these provisions are retroactively extended to cover a period from Jan. 1, 2014 to Dec. 31, 2015. NAR stated they have been working on an extension of these provisions since the previous extension was passed on New Years’ Day 2013. While this is an important first step toward having the two-year extension enacted into law, there are some significant hurdles left to overcome, which not surprisingly, it comes down to the money. According to the NAR brief, the Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that a two-year extension of the mortgage debt cancellation relief would cost $5.4 billion. NAR expressed that this will create significant push-back by some members of Congress and senators who will insist that amount be offset by raising taxes elsewhere or cuts in spending. NAR also pointed out that the House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Dave Camp, has expressed a desire to make some of the “extender” provisions permanent, while allowing other provisions to expire. Reconciling which provisions are extended, for how long, and whether they are paid for, are still issues without consensus between the Senate and the House. The bill has cleared the Finance Committee, and is an important piece of legislation to watch that greatly impacts the real estate market and the economy overall. Without mortgage debt relief, homeowners in distressed situations may choose to not conduct a short sale based on the tax consequence—and the alternative is deed in lieu or foreclosure. If you want to support this legislation, you can contact your senator to urge them to act on the bill. Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTOR® with Bunting Realty, Inc.

BUSINESS BRIEFS

Flexera, Inc. to commence LED lighting project in OC (April 18, 2014) Flexera, Inc.,recognized as a leader in the alternative energy space specializing in solar power and LED solutions, announced this week that it has commenced a comprehensive LED lighting project for Ocean City Square Shopping Center on 118th Street. The specialized project is expected to be completed and fully operational by April 30, and will convert the majority of the center’s traditional incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs. Ocean City Square Shopping Center, which serves as the hub for several highprofile establishments such as SherwinWilliams and Dunkin’ Donuts—and is widely recognized as the island’s largest retail commercial area with more than 100,000 square feet—is expected to save more than $23,000 per year in electricity costs once the new LEDs are installed. “When they brought me on board in March 2012, the shopping center was in dire need of renovation and an upgrade,” said Randy Coburn, property manager of Ocean City Square. “Soon after, the landlord committed to spending over $600,000 to upgrade the storefront and modernization of the facility. Moneysaving solutions, green energy, and a welcoming shopping experience has been a top priority for us ever since.” The Ocean City Square project highlights Flexera’s strength as a complete

energy solutions specialist rather than a one-dimensional lighting installer. The Harbeson, Delaware-based company was able to coordinate pre-project approvals with the Delmarva Power C&I Energy Efficiency Program, which will be funding a significant portion of the project; thus accelerating the financial payback for Ocean City Square. The energy and monetary benefits generated from the Ocean City Square LED Lighting Project include savings more than 236,000 kilowatt hours annually, or $23,600 and offsetting more than 180 tons of carbon emissions annually. It is equivalent to removing 53 cars from the road for 25 years. “I love how our team was able to construct a balanced plan for Randy and the rest of the Ocean City Square management team,” said Bob Light, CEO of Flexera. “Our coordinated approach dovetails nicely with their mission to be the area’s top retail destination for shoppers, while presenting a value-add for the owners who lease there. The benefits for the businesses and Ocean City Square are certain to be received for generations.” The new LED lights will be installed in the common area of Ocean City Square, including in the parking lot, which will provide a significant level of clarity for shoppers.

Heroin Continued from Page 1 arrested him last August after finding more than 400 bags of heroin in his car and he pleaded guilty in December in Worcester County Circuit Court to possession with the intent to distribute. As harsh at it might be, this jail time could be the beginning of a better life for Wes, his parents believe, considering that their strong intervention at home, his multiple trips to rehabilitation centers and his stays at a succession of halfway houses failed to do the job. The problem, they say, is not just the constant tide of drugs flowing into northern Worcester County, but the unavailability of an effective method of treating addicts over the long term and providing assistance for those struggling to help them. There is, after all, no chemical cure for opiate addiction, with the National Institute on Drug Abuse saying that recovering addicts require “a continuum of care.” “We need to have access to resources, said Jackie, an Ocean City café owner. “We’re light years right now from where we need to be.” One reason for the nonexistence of a more complete and unified approach to drug treatment, she and Kevin agree, is the public’s perception that drug addiction is the result of the addict’s own bad choices. And, too, there is that stereotypical image of the quivering watery-eyed junkie lurking in the

background. “Really, there is a stigma,” Jackie said. “Who wants to go out there … ‘you’re telling me about how your kid’s on the honor roll and just had this great lacrosse game.’ You know, it’s really hard for me to come out and say, “Oh yeah, and my kid’s just basically doing drugs.” But that is what Wes began to do in 2004, when he entered the 9th grade at Stephen Decatur High School. “It’s the same story you hear from a lot of people,” Kevin said. Wes was trying to fit in at a new school and fell in with a group of other students who were dabbling with marijuana. “I don’t think he felt like he was doing anything out of the ordinary,” Kevin, an Ocean City hotel executive, said. But other indications of behavioral issues arose as Wes moved into his sophomore year. He began coming home late and when pot-smoking paraphernalia fell out of the clothes dryer as Jackie did his laundry, he would swear, “This isn’t mine.” Ultimately, school officials told Jackie and Kevin that they suspected Wes was getting high. “We felt he was totally out of control that summer,” Jackie said. “We tried to keep him in the house. It was a struggle.” Wes lived with Jackie after his parents divorced before his drug use began. Asked if the divorce itself might have led Wes to mask his feelings with drugs, Kevin said it did not. “We got divorced,” Kevin said. “We

PAGE 75

made a decision to keep our relationship good for the kids (Wes has a younger brother).” He and Jackie also live across the street from each other in West Ocean City, he said, so there was no lack of communication between the two. Initially, Jackie and Kevin considered the possibility that Wes was simply a defiant teen with bad grades and a desire to do what he pleased. They also thought his social environment might be a contributing factor – the whole “running with a bad crowd” scenario – and decided to remove him from that by sending him to the Diamond Ranch Academy, a long-term residential school in Utah for troubled teens. At $50,000 for a school year, Diamond Ranch Academy was more of a boot camp high school with a detox program. “I remember leaving that first day,” Kevin said. “I was as upset as he was.” They were even more agitated, though, after a routine drug screening there showed that Wes had been using multiple substances. Although Jackie and Kevin recognized that Wes exhibited behavior problems, they did not connect them to drug use. “I’d say we were a little naïve,” Jackie said. “We definitely [didn’t] make the jump to addiction.” “We had an awakening,” Kevin added. When Wes emerged from that year of school in Utah, Jackie and Kevin thought this potentially disastrous phase of their son’s life had passed. He

looked the best he had in years and said all the right things about staying clean and returning to a normal teenage existence, Jackie said. Besides, hanging over him was the promise from Kevin, “You’re going back there if you screw up. I thought just that stick would be enough, but with an addict, they don’t think longterm like that.” That became evident in their son’s senior year back at Stephen Decatur in 2007. Jackie said he had gravitated toward a rougher crowd that summer, with people neither she nor Kevin had seen before showing up at the house. He also began using the prescription pain reliever OxyContin (oxycodone hydrochloride). With a chemical structure similar to codeine, the oxycodone-based pain relievers are opiate derivatives and occupy the shelves in many household medicine cabinets. “People have this stuff all over the place,” Kevin said, “and it gets to school.” In short order, Wes received two citations for underage drinking and lost his part-time job at a local restaurant for not showing up to work. “It was all starting to happen again. Here we go again,” Jackie said. Jackie and Kevin resorted to the usual things parents do: they talked to him, grounded him and threatened more rigid measures without result. When senior week arrived in June 2008, Wes celebrated by going on a week-long binge that ended with his See HEROIN Page 76

Heroin Continued from Page 75 arrest on a marijuana charge. “I don’t want anything to do with him,” Jackie told the police when they delivered him to her house. “I’ve had it. I was thinking tough love. Go ahead, let him hit bottom and the cop says, ‘He’s not 18 yet. You’re taking him. You don’t have a choice.’” She responded by putting him on what amounted to house arrest, as well as having him submit to drug testing. “I tried to lock him in the house,” she said, allowing him to leave only for work at her café. “At that point,” she said, “you can’t imagine that one of your kids is not going to college. We’re still hanging on to that dream … like there’s no tomorrow. He’s going to mature. Teachers say he’s smart, he’s going to mature.” Kevin, meanwhile, was still somewhat in denial. “I’m of the mindset, if we can just get him out of this town. Hopefully, he’ll fall in with a good crowd.” “We’re still not thinking ‘addict,’ Jackie added, “and he’s still thinking he’s a normal kid.” Although Wes did make his own decisions, as a Circuit Court judge would note at his sentencing hearing this past January, his parents suspect he was too immature to understand where he was taking himself. “I don’t want anyone to think that we’re just making excuses and justifying his behavior,” Kevin said. “We’ve always believed in him having to pay the consequences.” Wes, however, appeared to be improving because of his summer-long grounding, and Jackie and Kevin arranged for him to enter Marshall University in West Virginia that September. Their hope that the positive college atmosphere would further encourage him to leave his drug use behind lasted a little more than two months. “We put him in … probably the worst possible place that you could,” Kevin said. “He never went to class.” Instead, he chased his oxy drug habit and then moved to injecting heroin until his money ran out. “I get a call in November 2008, ‘Mom, I’m in trouble. I don’t know what to do. Right now, I’m about to go into a methadone clinic.” Jackie and Kevin were devastated. Instead of college helping him shake his drug dependency, the more relaxed structure there made it worse. He turned to shooting up drugs and supported his habit by stealing from his roommate and other people in his dorm. When he had exhausted his money and began to go through withdrawal, he sought relief at the methadone clinic. An opiate itself, methadone gives users no high but does prevent the sometimes excruciating sickness that addicts suffer as the effects of other opiates disappear. Jackie and Kevin brought Wes home and began taking trips to the methadone clinic in Salisbury so Wes could receive his dose. “If I needed more of a wakeup call,”

Ocean City Today

Jackie said, “the college says ‘you’ve got to come and clean out his dorm room.’ They meet me at the door and hand me Latex gloves. I go into his room. It’s disgusting, needles everywhere. Oh my God. [I’m] crying my eyes out. Wes switched from oxy to heroin because it costs around half as much as oxycodone (USA Today this week reported that a multiple dose supply of heroin costs between $45 and $60, while an 80 mg OxyContin pill can cost between $60 and $100. There were times, Wes later told his parents, that he would have done anything,

oxone, (buprenorphine) an opioid substitute recognized by the federal government as effective in long-term replacement therapy. As Kevin and Jackie discovered, however, the addict becomes just as dependent on Suboxone, or “bupe” as it is known on the street, as he was on the illegal opium derivatives. In addition, there are few remedies, if any, beyond that point. Suboxone is viewed in the drug treatment world as a better – and less stigmatized – alternative to methadone, but it is a maintenance drug, not a cure. “I can’t keep him in a bubble,”

crossed any line to get whatever he needed to satisfy his craving. Jackie and Kevin knew drastic steps had to be taken, but aside from being aware of the cost factor, which is in the tens of thousands of dollars for the typical 28-day stay in a rehabilitation institution, they did not know how difficult and frustrating dealing with some clinics can be. Kevin said that on three different occasions, as they took Wes to different treatment centers over the next few years, they were assured that health insurance would cover most of the expense. That never happened. Each of the centers, Kevin said, called after the first few days of Wes’s treatment to inform him that the insurance company would pay for just five days of rehabilitation. “The treatment centers, they know.” Kevin said. “You mean this is the first time they deal with this? They should have told you right up front … they want to get the hook in.” “They figure you’ll do anything,” Jackie added. “Oh my God, you’re going to give him back to me? What the hell? I don’t know what to do now.” The other problem with treatment centers, they concluded, is that once they get an addict off something, they put him on something else. In their son’s case, the centers weaned him off methadone and then prescribed Sub-

Jackie said. Besides, at this point there was little money left to pay for continued treatment. Kevin and Jackie did get him into one more facility before he moved in with the Pennsylvania family of a girl he met in college. The family knew he had been prescribed Suboxone but agreed to take him in and set up living quarters for him in the basement of their home. This positive situation, however, deteriorated just as the others had. In early 2010, he went back to using drugs and the family had no choice but to move him out of the house. He did have a job at a fast food restaurant and they helped him find an apartment, where he went into a slow decline. First, it was back to oxy and then to heroin again. He sold everything he owned to buy more drugs, lost his job that spring and found himself penniless. Another cycle of rehab centers and halfway houses followed. His last halfway house was in Levittown, Pa., where for a year he did little more than exist. The halfway house operator, an ex-addict herself, told Kevin and Jackie that Wes had to leave. She said he did not follow the rules and put no effort into getting better. Back at home, his downward spiral continued. He got a pizza delivery job, but soon was arrested for distributing Suboxone and was sentenced to 18 months in jail, with all but 90 days

APRIL 18, 2014 suspended. The only positive aspect of that, Kevin and Jackie thought at the time, was that he could not use drugs in jail. “Wrong,” Kevin said. “He was never clean.” Although Kevin and Jackie were unaware of it, associates of inmates routinely smuggled Suboxone into the jail. Because the drug comes in strips of a film-like substance, it is easily concealed in within the pages of books. Wes returned home from jail in May and found another delivery job. His parents again believed he was clean, but soon after his return he reconnected with his friends, became a minor dealer and went back to injecting heroin. Even so, from all outward appearances, Wes seemed to be getting himself clean again. “You think that you will be able to tell, but you really can’t,” Kevin said. Meanwhile, Jackie wanted to be sure Wes was saving his money for the offseason and in June asked to see his finances. She said he was reluctant to show her his checkbook, which led her to accuse him of using again. He told her he had put himself back on Suboxone and was buying it on the streets because he could not get a prescription. Two months later, in August, the police stopped his car just this side of the Delaware line and discovered the bags of heroin. Kevin and Jackie are still surprised that Wes could serve his time locally, instead of being sent to state prison. They do know this time, however, that he will have no access to drugs, since stricter rules have been put in place by the jail’s warden, Garry Mumford. Books, for instance, must come direct from the manufacturer. In the meantime, Jackie has made drug abuse prevention and the call for better treatment programs her mission. Even now as mainstream America endures what healthcare professionals are calling a heroin epidemic, a “large treatment gap” persists in this country. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 23.1 million Americans, or almost 9 percent of the population, in 2012 needed treatment for drug- or alcohol-related problems. Of that total, only 2.5 million people received that treatment at an appropriate facility. That is why Jackie takes her message to Stephen Decatur High School and anywhere people will listen, although she does follow her son’s advice: “Don’t go in there and say at assembly … don’t use drugs. Someone like me is not going to pay any attention.” As for Wes, once he is released from jail, he will be subject to Worcester County’s Adult Drug Treatment Court, a court-supervised rehabilitation program that includes blood tests and twice monthly appearances before a judge. And after that? “Let me just say, number one, it’s not the end of the story,” Jackie said. “He is scared to death about what will happen when he walks out of the door of jail.”


APRIL 18, 2014

Wes Continued from Page 1 them. Talking through a small, mesh box in the window, Bresnahan began the conversation by explaining why he had agreed to the jailhouse interview. “I just feel like I should be helping other people, even though I’m not really cured myself,” he said. “I don’t think there is a cure.” Bresnahan, who comes from a good Ocean City family, with the advantages that allows, is one of the millions of young people who have used or continue to use heroin. In 2011 alone, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 4.2 million Americans age 12 and older had used heroin at least once. Bresnahan was among the 23 percent who become dependent on it. “I knew the consequences. I just kept using. The compulsion was too crazy,” he said. “As long as I did it, I felt good.” The urge to feel good, as he puts it, began when he moved from Salisbury to Worcester County. A newcomer at Stephen Decatur High, he was eager to find his social footing. “I wanted to fit in, and I guess that drugs are one of the best ways to do that,” said the then-football and track athlete. In the 9th grade, he started drinking beer and smoking marijuana with his friends. “I was a lot more sociable and confident. I felt like I could conquer anything (when I was high),” he said, and attaining that feeling trumped all else, including his spot on the football and track teams. By the summer after his sophomore year, Wes’ parents were determined to rein in their son, who by then had dabbled in cocaine. In a $50,000 move, they sent him to a 10month program at Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah for his junior year of school. Tucked miles down a dirt road in a quasi-military institution where even caffeine and sugar were prohibited, Bresnahan devoted himself to getting clean. “I pretty much committed myself from day one. I actually did what I was supposed to do. It was a really tough program,” he said. But the teen soon learned that year was “like a little limbo.” He re-entered Stephen Decatur for his senior year and found himself falling into old habits straightaway. “My first day back, one of my buddies — we went out on his boat and were drinking and smoking pot. I was having such a good time, I forgot where I went,” Bresnhan said. The same year, a friend introduced him to oxycodone, an opioid commonly prescribed for pain. “They (doctors) were prescribing it like crazy,” Bresnahan said. “Pills — it was so innocent and whatnot.” “Doing those oxys for the first time, it just completed me,” he said. “I snorted it and I loved it. I just had to get my hands on it, because I felt so perfect.”

Ocean City Today

Bresnahan netted two citations for underage drinking and possession of marijuana that year. Usually a hard worker, he lost his job at a local restaurant that summer before vanishing on a weeklong binge. Police delivered the 17-year-old to his parents after arresting him on marijuana charges. He said his parents kept a close watch on him for the rest of that summer, administering drug tests and keeping him at home as much as they could. Their hopes for him hinged on a fresh start at college in the fall. They still didn’t think of Wes as an addict, but by then he relied on drugs to mend his anxiety, even while they were making him sick. “I knew I just needed it to be in any social situation,” he said. The drugs only became more accessible when he arrived at Marshall University in West Virginia, as soon after his arrival he met a student heroin user who introduced him to intravenous use. “He looked so good on it I couldn’t refuse,” Bresnahan said. And while oxycodone could cost up to $30 a pill back home, Bresnahan said he could score a $10 high on heroin. But even at that price, his habit required a constant cash flow that he did not have, so he ransacked his room and sold his roommate’s books and laptop before running out of fuel for his addiction. The drugs were making his anxiety worse, ramping up his dependence in a vicious cycle. “You’re an animal sniffing out the drugs,” Wes said. “The anxiety and the bugs running through your skin — you have to have the drug or you won’t want to get out of bed … It’s really tough just getting the energy to go out and get the drugs.” When he ran completely out of money, Bresnahan found himself down the road at the methadone clinic, which offers “replacement therapy” for heroin users. Methadone is a slow-acting opioid agonist, meaning it activates the same brain receptors as heroin. It’s taken orally so it reaches the brain more slowly, dulling the high that other drugs induce while preventing withdrawal symptoms. It is only available through outpatient treatment programs, where it is dispensed to patients on a daily basis. Despite his addiction, he still met a girl, Alison, who would make the trek to the clinic with him. “I would drag her along with me. She would walk with me to the methadone clinic,” he said. “I remember walking four miles from campus to get to that clinic. “When I went to college, I was there for all the wrong reasons. I never went to class.” When Bresnahan returned home for Thanksgiving, his parents were so stunned by the change they wouldn’t let him return to Marshall. He went through a succession of rehab programs with little result. He also did other drugs, including Xanax and Adderall, at the time. “I lied to doctors … If I was able to get my hands on five or six other

drugs, I would,” he said. “I went to three straight places and I was sick of it and I ended up calling Alison. She dropped out of school for me. I still feel guilty to this day.” Bresnahan won Alison’s parents over despite his history and he began living with them. By then, he was on Suboxone, a prescription treatment for cravings. Taken orally, Suboxone contains the compound naloxone, which blocks the action of opioids to prevent addicts from trying to inject the medication. If a patient does inject Suboxone, the naloxone induces withdrawal symptoms, which they avoid when taking it orally as prescribed. The FDA approved Suboxone in 2002, making it one of the first medications eligible for prescription by certified physicians through the Drug Addiction Treatment Act. According to NIDA, nearly 10,000 physicians have undergone training to prescribe it. “It’s like government, synthetic heroin,” Wes said. “Suboxone is itself an opiate … The thing I’m trying to get at is, I got dependent on that. I never even tried getting clean at all.” With the help of the legal drug, he stayed off heroin — he doesn’t know how long — before relapsing. It was on Valentine’s Day, when he and Alison had planned to go out to dinner and to see her father perform at a concert. Instead, he told Alison he had an emergency situation at work and had to cancel the plans. “In actuality, I was driving back down to the Shore here. Someone had a bunch of oxys and a deal I couldn’t refuse,” he said “It speaks volumes about what it does to you. Those drugs always come first.” As a consequence, he lost his housing and his girlfriend and “it was back and forth between sober houses and halfway houses” after that. After getting kicked out of his last sober house in Levittown, Pa., Bresnahan returned to his parents. “I came back here, and, oh God, that was not the answer. People I first knew to be athletes and stuff like that had a needle in their arm. Coming back to a place like this and seeing how it’s evolved horribly — it’s a shock.” With the latest relapse, Bresnahan again had a heroin habit to finance. Though he never considered himself a drug dealer, he began to sell heroin to obtain his own. Police arrested Wes in October 2012 for felony possession of Suboxone. He received 18 months with all but 90 days suspended in the county jail. As he recalls, the withdrawal over those three months was brutal. “I was throwing up and had diarrhea. I couldn’t sleep for two weeks straight. “You’re just left with the cravings … I never thought you could crave something so bad. All your thoughts are just centered on how to get it and how to get comfortable.” Though Bresnahan got out on probation, he soon found himself back in

PAGE 77 the county jail, after a drug-run to Philadelphia for his dealer, Michael John Abbaticchio, 24, of West Ocean City, resulted in his conviction of possession with intent to distribute 411 bags of heroin that police found in his car. Bresnahan had agreed to transport the drugs in exchange for a discounted price, while Abbaticchio followed in another car. He pleaded guilty last December to the charges and was back in jail this January. Abbaticchio also was convicted on drug charges last December and is serving an eight-year prison sentence. “I got out and I was doing the exact same thing,” he said. “At first I thought that it (the lowest point) was when I got kicked out of a sober house and was shooting dope in the street. My second time here was when I realized I completely hit bottom.” Despite the months he’s spent in the Snow Hill cell, Wes’ cravings persist. Finding a routine — exercising, reading and journaling — has helped the days pass. After serving one-quarter of his 18month sentence, Bresnahan will be eligible for an interview that will determine whether he receives an early release on probation. He worries, though, that his old habits will return once he’s out of institutional life. “I can’t afford to screw up even once,” he said. “You’ve really got to take the time to get clean. He plans to enroll in Wor-Wic Community College, attend counseling and work out to stay busy. He wants to study psychology, a subject he loved in the past, and produce electronic music, a passion born during his time in halfway houses. “You’ve got to find something to be passionate about to stay sober and not lose it,” Wes said. “It’s like being reborn again … It’s like coming up from under the water.” Like most parents of addicts, Wes’ parents wonder what they could’ve done differently. But even their son can’t answer the question. “Trying to think of things that might’ve worked — If you’re going to do it, you’re going to do it,” he said. He still feels guilty for how he treated everyone during his nearly decade-long decline. “Every relationship I touched turned to [expletive],” he said. “That’s one of those things I feel really guilty about and want to pull my hair out and go back and fix it…. They acted really humane toward me and I just pushed them away.” As he continues his recovery, he feels a mixture of emotions, which can shift in an instant. “Sometimes you can’t even pin them down because they’re so strong,” he said, but “I feel a lot more positive now.” As Bresnahan knows, any addict is going to come “crashing down.” “When it does, it’s a lot of pain and a lot of repair,” he said. “Now I weigh the reward and consequences and I look at the consequences a lot more. “I feel like I completely wasted my life.”

Treating addiction as disease OUR OPINION

In this week’s Ocean City Today, we urge you to read the article entitled “High school to heroin,” and written by Stewart Dobson and Clara Vaughn. It is a story about one family’s gutwrenching struggle with a son’s heroin addiction. Usually stories such as these involve pseudonyms and removing any association that might identify the subjects. Kevin Bresnahan and Jackie Ball and their son Wes took a vitally courageous step allowing us all to know that this was their family. And why shouldn’t they have? A hard-working family with strong ideals, the couple didn’t raise Wes to become a heroin addict. Yet he has the addictive disease that makes every attempt at coming clean an uphill battle. There used to be a time when access to marijuana was thought to be the easiest gateway towards addiction. Now, we learn that heroin seems easy to purchase, and once used difficult to overcome. The new “gateway” seems to be prescription painkillers, but we are still surprised how easily the pills and the heroin can be purchased. What Dobson and Vaughn do, however, is to bring a story to our attention that could have happened to any middle to upper middle class home here in Ocean City or elsewhere. This was a family with hopes and dreams for the success of their children. Now when Jackie talks to friends it’s difficult for her to hear that a friend’s child is heading off to college or is going after a post-graduate degree. Her son Wes has unsuccessfully attempted college, but invariably has been thrown out of academia and incarcerated. Wes is “clean” now while serving a jail sentence. And if there’s anything else good about his incarceration it’s that his parents know for sure where he is. We invite your comment on these important stories. Most of all if there’s something that hits home for you, then we ask to seek help that recognizes that substance abuse is a disease not necessarily a series of bad choices.

THE PUBLIC EYE

Remembering Jesse Klump EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

By Phil Jacobs

May 24th is Suicide Prevention Day here in Worcester County. For Kim Klump every day is suicide prevention day. That became her reality in February, 2009 when Jesse, her 17-year-old son, took his own life. Straight As at Snow Hill High School, exceptional athlete, a good-looking kid. “I used to go to a (support) group after my son died,” she said. It was called “SOS” and run by Yellow Ribbon. When it went defunct, I still felt there was a need to fill.” Kim went through training to be a facilitator for those impacted by the loss of a loved one or friend to suicide. “As word caught on, we had new people joining us along the way,” she recounted. “We had a regular core group, because a lot of people don’t stop going even though they are feeling better. They stay to help others, which also helps them. There’s a lot of back and forth and listening and taking in healing advice from those who have been through it long ago, to those who are raw and looking for some solace.” Typically, she said 10 to 12 people or more will attend the group. “It’s a big step for them to actually come to the group,” the Girdletree resident said. “I let them know that it’s a great step towards their healing, and we’re glad to have them with us. It is a very emotional night when someone new joins us. It brings back memories of what we’ve all experienced. We use lots of tissues.” Kim said that she’s found that the pain never really goes away, it just lessens with time. “Most of the people struggle with their own feelings of guilt or anger,” she said. “With suicide, there are always ‘what ifs’ that you question yourself on. There’s often guilt and angry feelings complicating the grief.” Kim added that most of the people who at-

tend her group are open and aren’t afraid to talk about what happened. It makes them feel better to talk about it. “I really wasn’t aware that suicide was as prevalent as it is in this area,” she said. “Learning that just opened my eyes, and made me realize that there’s a lot of work to be done.” Kim said that the Eastern Shore, like any other rural area has a relatively high number of suicides or attempts. “I think it’s a combination of availability of the fire arms which tend to make the attempt more lethal,” she said. “There is a lot of hunting going on in the rural areas which means there are fire arms. Also, there aren’t as many resources available or even if they are available, many people don’t know about them. I also think that a number of our suicides happen in Ocean City by people who have come to Ocean City to take their own lives. Childhood memories might bring them there. I’m not sure, I can only guess. “There’s also the time it takes to kill oneself,” she added. “Hanging might not work if the rope breaks or something falls. It gives them a moment to ask themselves if they really want to do this. But firearms do not give you that second chance.” Kim monitors many teens on the social media. If she feels they are in danger, she will contact them and their parents knowing that she cares for them. Kim is a Licensed Environmental Health Specialist for Worcester County. She is a certified mentor for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Kim is President of the Jesse Klump Memorial Fund, the non-profit that supports the Worcester County Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program. Kim doesn’t do crisis calls, because she’s not trained for that. She recommends the crisis hotline 1-800-273-TALK for those who need to talk See REMEMBERING Page 79

If, as the Ocean City mayor and council this week declared, no one reads anything in print anymore, why is it they get so upset when we write something they don’t like? All I can think of is that someone from this office texts, posts or calls them when we write something critical because otherwise they would not have known. When I find out who this person is, heads will roll. On the other hand, if no one reads printed material anymore, I can say whatever I want, since no one is going to see it anyway. It’s like the tree falling in the forest when no one is around sort of thing. Having established that I am writing to an audience of none, here is what I think: the mayor and council are picking on the Beach Patrol because they already promised the ranch to everyone else and it’s all they have left to target, except maybe for a few lesser known unprotected jobs and people they want to do away with because … well … someone just doesn’t like them. It’s also possible, however, that these elected officials are going after the Beach Patrol because we ratted out City Hall last year for attempting to stuff the patrol in a hovel that wouldn’t pass inspection as a goatherd’s tent. What they really wanted to do was shove them into Northside Park, all neat and tidy like, but the public backed the patrol’s desire to stay downtown in a new headquarters, thereby costing the city money it doesn’t have because it all was pledged to the unions in the last election. Again, I can say this with impunity, because no one is ever going to know. Nothing else makes sense, though, considering that the mayor and council’s latest target is the Beach Patrol’s little newsletter. This is breaking the bank? Really? I See OCBP Page 79

Treating addiction right way as a life-changing disease Continued from Page 78 had a relative who was in the early stages of cancer, we’d move mountains to help the patient overcome his illness. Instead, parents of drug-addicted children find themselves asking what went wrong? Are they bad parents? Is their child a bad kid? Instead, the questions for both the addicted child and his or her parents has got to be how do we treat this disease, much like would happen if the child was battling cancer. Heroin use, however, is a ‘”cancer” in itself, placing an overwhelmingly expensive set of circumstances that can break families apart if not bankrupt them. We don’t know if Worcester County

provides a complete enough prevention and treatment program for these families. Because we wouldn’t be surprised if like Jackie and Kevin have learned, to get help one must work hard to find that help even if it’s thousands of miles away. Seems like marijuana might not be the gateway drug of choice anymore. Young people are finding that opiates and heroin are available and ingested, breaking up promising futures and leaving many families with irreparable damage. We all want it to end. But like so many others, Wes and his parents wait for the other shoe to drop. It typically does.

Everyone is invited to our community’s ’

thereby ending this debate. Just take the city out of it altogether so we all can move on. This will work depending on two things: one, if this really is about the money and not something else and, two, if anyone reads this.

Soon, she added, those at risk will be able to have 24/7 texting to get help at http://www.crisistextline.org/get-helpnow/. Her advice to a teenager or anyone else who has an at-risk friend or relative? “I tell them to be with that friend, if you are not with them go to where they are,” she said. “Talk to them emphatically and let them know you care. Ask them directly ‘are you considering suicide?’ If the answer is yes they may be relieved to know you understand their pain. Ask if they have a plan to find out how serious they are. Let them know that you care and try to disable their plan by figuring out how to remove access to the means (removing weapons from their home by keeping them at a friend’s house say) meanwhile while get them in touch with a professional or a trusted individual who can help. If it’s imminent and the friend can’t deal with it, I tell the friend to call 911.” In the years since Jesse’s death, Kim has learned a great deal about what she might have done then if she knew what she knows now. “There weren’t obvious signs or sub-

tle signs,” she recounted. Those who are seeking help or want more information can go to www.choosetolivemaryland.org. The Worcester County Suicide Grievers Support Group meets the third Wednesday of each month at the Worcester County Health Department, 9730 Heathway Drive, Berlin, Md. The phone number is 410-629-0164, ext. 134. Ron Pilling, secretary/treasurer of the Worcester County Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program said that since its inception, the group has addressed over 1,000 people in schools, churches, fraternal order meetings and other locations. The Bishopville resident said that when the group address is a meeting it will ask “How many of you know someone who took their own life, raise your hands?” Invariably, according to Pilling, over two thirds of the hands go up. The group will have a booth at the Tuesday, May 6, Ocean City Annual Health Fair at the Convention Center. This year the Jesse Klump Memorial Fund, he said, will be giving out its sixth scholarship to a deserving high school senior, and at the same time continue its informative community meetings.

(April 18, 2014) A veteran lifeguard is looking to turn the budding sport of ultimate Frisbee into a profitable – and respected – enterprise both locally, nationally and abroad. Alex “A.J.” Jacoski, 26, recently signed with the Washington, D.C. Breeze, one of 17 professional teams in the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) and has traveled to several countries overseas as an ambassador of the sport. The West Ocean City resident began playing “ultimate” in 2002 as a high school freshman in Philadelphia. “I played soccer growing up and my friend’s older brother played ultimate in high school,” Jacoski said. “It seemed like such a unique sport and a good group of guys. That’s what I noticed first – the friendship among the teams. They talked about how much fun it was and I just started throwing.” The sport, a mash-up of soccer, football and lacrosse, encourages good sportsmanship and is often played without referees, instead trusting athletes to call their own fouls. Professional games consist of four 12-minute quarters, while more informal leagues have no time limit, instead playing to 15 points. Each team consists of seven players on the field and each goal is worth one point – whether it’s thrown from 3 feet or 30 yards. After playing pick-up games in high school Jacoski joined his first organized league while in college at Salisbury University. The team would play regular games against neighboring schools including the University of Maryland, the University of Delaware and George Washington University, setting up on the front lawn of Holloway Hall. Conditions were often less than ideal. “In the last five years I think people have been pushing for ultimate be more of an athletic sport than a reject hippy sport,” he said with a laugh. “At first I felt a lot of pride to represent my college and to play on our field, but it would have been nice to have been seen with the other club sports like lacrosse and baseball, and even getting practice on the intramural fields would have been helpful. Schools like the University of Florida and the University of Wisconsin are sponsored, so you get to travel across the country for free and it takes a lot of pressure off the players.

Assateague lifeguard excited to compete as pro athlete Continued from Page 81 smaller school you have to work a little harder.” After college, Jacoski began playing with American Hyperbole, a Baltimore-based “club league” team. Club teams often drive to and from games in separate cars. “You’re traveling to tournaments and paying for hotel fees and food costs, so an average player will spend between $2,000 and $4,000 to play for one season,” Jacoski said. “It is a little hard to sit still in a car for so long and then go out and play in a tournament for eight hours.” A shoulder injury sidelined Jacoski for two years, but in 2014, for the first time, he turned pro. The rookie cutter – the sport’s version of wide receiver – is certainly bullish on the Breeze’s chances. “We have two guys who were back-to-back national champions at the University of Pittsburgh who are like the Tom Brady and Randy Moss of ultimate, and we have basically the best coach in the world in Alexander Ghesquiere,” he said. “He coached the last couple team U.S.A.s to gold medals in international competitions and he’s now the D.C. coach. So we got a lot of top-end talent with a local team, which is really exciting.” The AUDL covers travel expenses and pays a salary, but Jacoski said it’s not enough to make a living – yet. “It’s a step in the right direction and I think the pro league does a lot to sort of legitimize it as a sport,” he said.

Jacoski continues to work as a lifeguard at Assateague State Park, a job he’s had for four years. “My friend Tim is one of the leading strength-and-conditioning coaches for ultimate, and him and I lifeguard together,” he said. “We’re at the cool position where we get to work at the beach, be outside, physical training is a part of our job, and we can also pursue our ultimate training there, which is a lot of the similar principles – sprinting, running, lungs and cardio.” The Breeze played its first game of the season on April 11 at George Mason High School against defending champions the Toronto Rush.

Lamb popular Easter holiday dish

creativity plus your good business sense once more combine to give you an important advantage in a difficult workplace situation. An ally proves his or her loyalty.

By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (April 18, 2014) Tradition is a way of thinking, behaving, or doing something that has been used by a particular group for a long time. The custom of eating lamb on Easter has its roots in early Passover observances. According to the biblical Exodus story, the people of Egypt suffered a series of terrible plagues, including the death of all the firstborn sons. Only those families that sacrificed an unblemished lamb and smeared its blood on the doorpost of their homes would be “passed over” and spared from the wrath of God. The practice of serving lamb during the Easter holiday remains quite popular but for different reasons. Lamb’s unique taste puts it in a category of its own. You can purchase a leg of lamb either boneless or bonein. A boneless leg is sold either butterflied, or rolled and tied. The beauty of this particular cut is that it will cook more evenly. On the other hand, a leg of lamb with the bone-in sports an impressive presentation. Marinating the lamb is the first

LEO (July 23 to August 22) An incomplete project needs your attention before someone else takes it over and uses it to his or her advantage. There’ll be lots of time for fun and games once you get it done. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)

Doubts involving a potential career change need to be resolved quickly so they don’t get in the way when you feel you’re finally ready to make the big move.

step toward a festive meal. Since lamb has a distinct essence, choose a marinade that includes plenty of aromas. Lemon, garlic and rosemary are great starters. Marinades should also contain enough acidity to help carry the flavors into the meat. The attraction of marinades is they are very forgiving; in other words, a precise recipe is not necessary. A splash of this and a dash of that is perfectly acceptable. Leg of lamb tends to be a larger piece of meat. As a result, it needs to be slowly roasted over medium heat. A bone-in leg will take longer to cook than a boneless leg. Always use a meat thermometer to test for doneness and keep the thermometer in the meatiest part of the leg, away from the bone. If medium-rare (130 degrees) is the desired temperature, you will want to remove it from the heat at approximately 123 degrees. Remember, the meat will continue to cook until it starts to cool down. A rotisserie is the preferred method of cooking. For those who do not have a rotisserie, grilling is another option. The char adds piquancy and texture. Mint is the proper ac-

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Looking to blame someone for a workplace problem could backfire if it turns out you’ve got the wrong “culprit.” Best to get more facts before acting on your assumptions.

OC ultimate Frisbee league to start in June Continued from Page 83 the University of Maryland. The team will travel as far north as Toronto and Montreal in 2014, and several games will be broadcast on ESPN for the first time, including a June 5 contest on Jacoski’s birthday. With the league in its third year, Jacoski is relishing the chance to get in at the ground floor. “It’s obviously something that needs to be built up,” he said. “I feel like I can have a really helpful voice in having ideas about where the league should go and what would work. I think I have a pretty good perspective on the game. “People are always surprised how fast it is and how athletic it is – running top speed, diving layout catches, jumping up and skying for the disc – these are all very athletic movements that not just anyone can walk out on the field and do,” he continued. “I think if they come watch it they’re going to love it and are going to get hooked. There are a lot of exciting plays and it’s a pretty cool spectator sport– it’s just going to take a few years to get off the ground.” As an ambassador of the game, Jacoski has also made inroads both locally and internationally on behalf of ultimate. “I’m really trying to build an ultimate community here in Ocean City,”

he said, citing a weekly Berlin pickup game played each Monday and a summer league in Ocean City that starts in June. For more information,

visit www.facebook.com/oceancitybeachultimate. Jacoski hopes to create new leagues focusing on youth develop-

ment. Last winter he and a friend took a group of 5-12-year-olds to play every Tuesday at the Ocean City Recreation and Parks complex on 125th Street. “Basically we took these kids for an hour and taught them Frisbee,” he said. “I was surprised and the other counselors were surprised how fast the kids picked it up, and they had a great time with it. I think we’re going to see more of those on the Shore. As far as sports go, it’s cheap – all you need is a Frisbee and orange cones.” On the international front, Jacoski recently spent six weeks in Southeast Asia teaching clinics in Singapore, Australia and the Philippines. While there, he played in a tournament with a team in the Philippines, making him eligible to play in the Beach Ultimate World Championship, held next year in Dubai. Jacoski also plans to try out for the tournament with Team U.S.A. “It gives me two chances to play at Beach Worlds, which I’m grateful for,” he said. “The Filipinos are a great people and they embraced us to be a part of their team. “The pro league is the highest level I’ve played at, so I think I’m going to develop a lot as a player this year and that’s hopefully going to carry me into next year when I’d like to play at Beach World’s.”

Lamb and lemon potatoes perfect pairing, Walker says Continued from Page 84 ator. Remove plastic and aluminum foil. Place meat on a platter so it can come to room temperature (1 hour). 3. Prepare a charcoal grill. Brush the wire rack with olive oil to keep the lamb from sticking. When the coals are white, grill the lamb (covered) on both sides until the internal temperature is 123 degrees. Turn the meat every 15 minutes. This will take approximately 1 hour, depending on how hot the grill is. 4. Remove the lamb to a cutting board, cover lightly with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 20 minutes. The slice and serve.

Lemon Potatoes

4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes 2/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, minced 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1 (14 ½ ounce) can of chicken stock kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

to taste 1. Peel potatoes and cut them in half. 2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large Ziploc bag and shake to combine. 3. Dry off potatoes, put them in the bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. 4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 5. Put the potatoes and marinade in a large oven-proof casserole dish (13 x 9 x 3). There will be an excess of sauce, but this helps reinforce the theme of lemon. 6. Roast until done, (approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes), turning occasionally. 7. Place the casserole dish under the broiler for the last 5 minutes for a crispier texture. Serves 6 to 8 people.

Job seekers fill out applications during the Ocean City Job Fair at the 40th Street convention center last year.

Employment opportunities available at resort Job Fair By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (April 18, 2014) Whether they’re seeking a full-time job or a part-time summer gig, resort residents and visitors will find a host of options at Ocean City’s annual job fair tomorrow, April 19. The 29th annual fair runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street. There is

no cost to attend the fair, sponsored by the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Ocean City. “There’s a great variety of jobs and skill sets that people are hiring for,” said chamber Events Director Lisa Dennis. Employers at the fair “definitely represent a few thousand positions.” See OPENINGS Page 89

Openings for full-time and part-time jobs in Ocean City Continued from Page 88 Each year, around 75 employers attend the fair, representing hotels, motels, restaurants and bars, amusement parks, retail stores, specialty shops, banks, watersports, real estate and property management companies and marinas, among others. While many positions are seasonal, the number of employers filling year-round spots has increased over the years, Dennis said. Capital City Nurses will be hiring nursing assistants during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair, for example. The job fair is a one-stop shop, letting job seekers submit many applications in one place. Some employers hire on the spot, so attendees should â&#x20AC;&#x153;dress for successâ&#x20AC;? and come prepared, Dennis said. Job seekers should come prepared with a pen and ID, as well as their resume.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t emphasize that enough because there are so many people competing for jobs,â&#x20AC;? Dennis said. Though applicants can make copies of their resume free on site, they might want to come prepared with many copies. Visit http://bit.ly/1esmd4v to use the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generic application to get started on a resume. New this year, Atlantic General Hospital and the Worcester County Health Department will be on site to answer healthcare questions, including about the new marketplace health insurance, and provide free health screenings. There will be a sign language interpreter present to help job applicants. In addition, an entire block of the convention center fair is devoted to providing workers with seasonal housing information.

Job seekers meet with local and regional employers about available positions during the 28th annual Ocean City Job Fair at the Ocean City convention center last year.

Around 4,000 job hunters attend the fair each year, which represents a few thousand of the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12,000 summer seasonal positions. Applicants range from high school students to older adults who run the gamut of workplace skills.

SENIOR SLANT

Retiring to Ocean City good move

By Irish Kemp Contributing Writer (April 18, 2014) Are you ready for a little bit of deja vu? Whin at a throw back to the days of yore. Students and local citizens out there walking for a good cause and the University of Maryland women's basketball team making it all the way to the “Final Four.” Young or old, Ocean City residents are right on top of any charity event. Running and walking ain't my thing, but I would gladly participate in a local rocking chair fundraising event. Rocking chairs on the Boardwalk establishment's porches and a few of the Boardwalk benches, come to mind. Donate to sit on a Boardwalk bench or the beach front establishment's, rocking chair.? “Yeah, yeah, you think the old broad has flipped. Benefactors of this fundraiser drive, the local Alzheimer and Dementia associations, of course. All we need now is a chair person. Naturally, it would have to be on a good weather weekend. Maybe our departed loved ones can pull off that

miracle. They're at the right place at the right time. Early June or September sounds good to me. Lucky retirees, those folks that chose Ocean City as the place to retire. Why sit home in the big city or nearby county when in Ocean City you're only a few miles away from any place you want to go on any given day. Putting down roots in OC would be a great move. For sure you'll be surrounded by your peers. Keeping busy and socializing with your newfound friends at places like Harpoon Hanna's every Wednesday, yearround has not been a problem for my generation of retirees. Thank the Lord that Harpoon's manager at that time, John Wingert agreed to have a year-round senior happy hour every Wednesday. Unbelievable that we are celebrating the 25th-plus anniversary of this social gathering, this year. Many a lifetime friendship and even a few marriages were forged at Hanna's senior, 50 years of age to 100-plus, happy hour event. If you happen to drop by John's restaurant, Magnolia's in Delaware, thank him for promoting this early on senior happy hour. Trust me folks, places to socialize with your peers

and listen and dance to the tunes of our times were no-nos in the 80s. I hope Mother Nature springs on our town a summer full of nice sunshiny days. Out and about celebrating birthdays were Pete O'Connor, Betty Arvin, George Louizes, Steve Kemp, Dolores Cockerel, Richard Cooke, Joan and John Sauer, Betty Taylor, Bill McCullough, Marilyn Allen, Jim and Helen Geslois, George Saur, Joan DeMarco, Toni Wagner and Pat Cooke. Long time, no see, Pat. Maybe we'll cross paths at St. Lukes Parish dinner and dance on Tuesday, April 29, 5-9 p.m. at St. Andrew's Center. Sounds like fun to me, with music by Old School. Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased at the parish office. Call 410250-0300 for more info. For folks having trouble with their forgetteries, I usually try not to publish dates of events too far in advance. If you're new in town and wanna be found, check out the local organizations ASAP. The Delmarva Irish American Club is holding its 12th annual Fish Fry at Shenanigan's on Fourth Street and boards on Thursday, May 22, from 6:30-10 p.m. Tickets cost $12 See CHECK Page 94

Reach Out and Read Program introduced at Atlantic Health Center joins more than 5K sites nationwide to help children succeed in school

(April 18, 2014) Getting books from the doctor are a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at Atlantic Health Center. Atlantic Health Center recently joined more than 5,000 program sites nationwide that are preparing America’s youngest children to succeed in school through the Reach Out and Read program. Doctors, nurse practitioners and other medical professionals incorporate Reach Out and Read’s evidencebased model into regular pediatric checkups, by advising parents about the importance of reading aloud and giving developmentally-appropriate books to children. They are essentially providing families with “prescriptions to read.” Reach Out and Read begins at the 6-month checkup and continues through age 5, with a special emphasis on children growing up in low-income communities. Families served by Reach Out and Read read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills, better

prepared to achieve their potential. Pediatric healthcare providers are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness: In the exam room, doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day and offer age-appropriate tips and encouragement. The pediatric primary care provider gives every child 6 months through 5 years old a new, developmentally-appropriate children’s book to take home and keep. In the waiting room, displays, information and books create a literacyrich environment. “Reach Out and Read is an efficient and effective concept,” said Reach Out and Read Acting Executive Director Brian Gallagher. “Our doctors and nurses know that the most important thing that parents can do to prepare their children to succeed in school and beyond is to read aloud to them every day. Encouraging parents to stimulate their children’s early language and brain development during regular pediatric checkups is a simple model that has a lasting, invaluable impact on the life of a child.” See PROGRAM Page 95

Lisa Leisure left, a nurse at the Atlantic Health Center, displays the Reach Out and Read book section with pediatrician, Anita Pascucci, MD. The two worked with Reach Out and Read to bring the program to the center’s pediatric patients.

Program preparing America’s youth to succeed in school Continued from Page 94 Reach Out and Read is a proven intervention that delivers results, and is supported by 15 independent, published research studies. During the preschool years, children served by Reach Out and Read score three to six months ahead of their non-Reach Out and Read peers on vocabulary tests. These foundational language skills help start children on a path of success when they enter school. “This is a wonderful program that gives the gift of reading as a reward for a wellness checkup,” said Deborah Wolf, director of the Atlantic Health Center. The books come in all reading levels and languages, which allows our associates to personalize the book to the child receiving it.

(April 18, 2014) The Maryland Coastal Bays Program is hosting workshops from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29 at the Snow Hill Middle School and again on Wednesday, April 30 at the Ocean Pines Country Club to seek community input on the updated Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan that addresses current and emerging issues impacting water quality and the health of the bays and waterways behind Ocean City and Assateague Island. The workshops are set up to allow participants to arrive any time during the three-hour period and browse information stations that appeal to their interests. The CCMP is a 15-year culmination of technical and community involvement to protect the future of our bays. It is a plan of action items created for MCBP by local individuals, community groups and government agencies. The original plan was finished in 1999 and is being updated as a 10year compilation of management recommendations from scientific

studies, new local, state and federal initiatives and the continuation of older successful outreach efforts to watershed residents. The new management plan includes four sections: Water Quality, Fish/Wildlife/Habitats, Recreation and Navigation, and Community and Economic Development. There are a total of 15 goals, 35 objectives and 216 action items that have been vetted by partners and the public. Science serves as the foundation to the management of MCBP, but the community, the watershed stakeholders is the most impacted by this plan. MCBP encourages everyone to attend a workshop as the public’s attitudes, perceptions, beliefs and knowledge is crucial to protecting our bays. Input from farmers, developers, commercial and recreational fishermen serves as an integral part of the non-regulatory plan. Take five minutes to fill out the survey located on the MCBP Web site, www.mdcoastalbays.org and attend one of the workshops. Both workshops are the same, but held on different dates and places in an effort to accommodate as many attendees as possible. Any questions, contact Sandi Smith at 410-213-2297 ext 103 or sandis@mdcoastalbays.org.

Ocean City Recreation and Parks Dept. earns awards (April 18, 2014) Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department has received two awards from the Maryland Recreation and Parks Association during the annual conference last week in Ocean City. The department received awards in the following categories: Best Activity Guide and Best Facility Brochure. The Best Activity Guide Award was received during the annual awards showcase by Angela Manos, OCRP marketing coordinator, and the Best Facility Brochure was received by Calvin Ginnivan, OCRP parks superintendent. The Best Activity Guide Award represents the best seasonal recreation and park guide distributed to the public highlighting offerings by an organization (recipient with population less than 50,000). OCRP was honored for its 2013 Fall/2014 Winter “Splash!” guide that lists both adult and youth recreation programs and events. In addition to providing Ocean City residents and visitors with information about sports programs and recreational events and activities, it seeks to engage the local community and reinforce the department’s mission and motto, “Get Active, Be

Healthy, Have Fun!” The Best Facility Brochure Award represents the best brochure spotlighting a specific park, sports, or community facility (recipient with population less than 50,000). OCRP’s Ocean City Parks brochure features a listing of all Ocean City parks and the amenities they offer. It provides a visual for people of what the city parks have to offer and allows them to compare the different amenities so they can decide what best suits their recreational needs. The purpose of the Maryland Recreation and Parks Association, Inc. is to unite recreation and park professionals and citizen advocates to advance park, recreation and environmental conservation efforts through networking, development and training and advocacy to enhance the quality of life for all Marylanders. Ocean City Recreation and Parks is a full service provider for recreation, parks and special events in Ocean City. Its mission is to provide quality recreational, cultural and social opportunities, as well as safe, clean, enjoyable parks, beaches and facilities to enhance the quality of life for Ocean City residents and visitors.

Freeman Stage kicks off ‘14 season May 24 Acts scheduled to perform include Barenaked Ladies, Beach Boys, Aaron Neville

(April 18, 2014) The Joshua M. Freeman Foundation has announced The Freeman Stage at Bayside is set to celebrate its seventh season of bringing arts and entertainment to the Mid-Atlantic region. The Freeman Stage has attracted more than 160,000 audience members since 2008, with a diverse offering of dance, theatre, live music and children’s performances. Located just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean in Selbyville, Del. the Stage has partnered to present more than 300 different performing artists, which include both local and national acts. The 2014 season will include more than 50 performances between Memorial Day and Labor Day, including 10 national recording artists–double the number offered during the 2013 season. The 10 national recording artists include Bruce Hornsby on July 2, Aaron Neville Duo on July 11, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy on July 12, Wynton Marsalis with Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra on July 19, Barenaked Ladies on July 23, Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam on July 25, The Beach Boys on July 27, Firefall on Aug. 8,

Jennifer Nettles on Aug. 9 and David Nail on Aug. 13. Combined, performers from the 2014 season have won more than 20 Grammy Awards and two are members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tickets for all paid performances will go on sale to the general public on Monday, April 21 at 10 a.m. “We have just released our 2014 schedule of events and we couldn’t be more excited about the mix of classic and contemporary artists that our seventh season will offer to our community,” said Patti Grimes, executive director of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation. “So many gifted and award-winning artists are scheduled to grace our beautiful stage. We hope that the performances in 2014 will expose new patrons to our diverse offerings and the importance of arts in the community, while continuing to be an inspiration for generations of families to come together for lifelong memories. Because of the generous support of organizations like our season sponsors–Sodoka, Inc. Charitable Foundation and Schell Brothers–we are able to offer free admission to 50 percent of our performances. This year, we welcome back the PNC Foundation as a sponsor of our Saturday morning children’s performances. It’s these kind of partnerships

FREE FAMILY FRIENDLY INDOOR JUNGLE GYM

that are necessary for the continued success of our mission at The Freeman Stage at Bayside and in our communities.” Among the performances scheduled this season are such crowd favorites as the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, Clear Space Theatre Group, Jesse Garron’s tribute to Elvis, and the First State Ballet Theatre. Also returning in 2014 are the Arts & Jazz Festival, Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, local artist John Donato, Tommy Edward as Sir Rod, tribute band, Hotel California: “A Salute to the Eagles” and Bruce in the USA, whose performance will include special guests in the audience from Operation SEAs the Day - a beach week event held in September for veterans who are recovering from injuries sustained while serving our country. Two nights of “Locals Under the Lights,” where local artists will have their moment in the spotlight, will also be back in 2014. Performers new to the outdoor stage this summer include Vocal Trash, winner of NBC’s “Phenomenon” Mike Super, Darrah Carr Dance, the Shaun Johnson Big Band, the Hot Club of San Francisco and Grammy Award winner Cristina Pato. The Freeman Stage at Bayside will

officially kickoff the 2014 season on the evening of May 24 with a performance of Rhythmic Circus’ “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!,” a family fun event featuring world class dance and live music. Regular weekly performances at The Freeman Stage will commence on June 20 with a performance by the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, who will be joined by The Vallely Brothers Duo, and also approximately 100 students from John M. Clayton Elementary School will take the stage. The Freeman Stage is a program of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation, who partners to present memorable performances and provide inspired arts education for all. This program is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. Grant support is also provided by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, the Sussex County Council, and Delaware. For more information on this season’s events, or to find out how to volunteer at The Freeman Stage, call 302-436-3015 or visit www.freemanstage.org.

Herbs, heirloom tomatoes, crafts featured at event

(April 18, 2014) For the 15th year, Assateague Coastal Trust will offer a selection of native flowering perennials, heirloom tomatoes, herbs and local crafts during its annual festival, Saturday, May 10. This year, the event will again take place next to ACT’s office, steps from the corner of Old Ocean City Boulevard and North Main Street in Berlin. The festival, which also features nature-inspired crafts, runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 10, just in time for Mother’s Day. “It is always a good idea, however, to place plant orders in advance,” said ACT President, Ken Wolf. “That guarantees that gardeners (and moms) will get the best of the plants that come from our growers.” Advance order forms are available at www.actforbays.org or by calling 410-629-1538. Orders may be placed directly through the Web site. All plants are chosen because of their drought resistance and their natural ability to adapt to local gardening conditions. Native plant gardens require less herbicide, less pesticide and less fertilizer than exotic varieties, which is good for the environment and encourages habitat creation for native wildlife. Since heirloom tomatoes were introduced to the festival four years ago they have grown in popularity. Heirlooms typically produce more flavorful tomatoes than hybrids. Master gardeners will also be on hand to help attendees solve garden problems. To place plant sale pre-orders or for information about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, visit www.actforbays.org or call 410-629-1538.

Song and prayer May 1 in Berlin

(April 18, 2014) On Thursday, May 1, the greater Berlin community is invited to gather on the front steps of the Historic Atlantic Hotel on Main Street at noon for song and prayer as we pray for our nation. This popular event will last approximately 60 minutes and will feature a number of community and church leaders praying for variety of important issues. The theme of this year’s prayer effort is “One Voice, United in Prayer” and is based on the Bible verse from Romans 15:6, “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” In the event of inclement weather, this prayer event will move across the street to Stevenson United Methodist Church,123 Main Street, Berlin, Md. Any questions, contact Jerry Wade, executive pastor of SonRise Church, at 443-880-7801 or e-mail Jwadecares@comcast.net.

Berlin throws huge party to celebrate award By Josh Davis Staff Writer

(April 18, 2014) After postponing the party on March 29 due to heavy rains and thunderstorms, last Saturday’s Coolest Small Town Celebration take two was met with picture-perfect weather. Thousands flocked to Berlin to see Budget Travel’s 2014 “America’s Coolest Small Town” in person. “We’re absolutely delighted with the turnout,” said Berlin Mayor Gee Williams. “The fact that we postponed (the party) not only brought us wonderful, blessed weather, but I think it also increased the amount of publicity and awareness about the fact that we were doing this. So it’s a win-win all around.” A parade featuring area youth organizations and students ran through the town beginning at 1 p.m. Ocean City Pipes and Drums also took part in the festivities. “It’s a pleasure to be here and we’re glad we were invited,” said Pat Harmon, the band’s manager. “We’re having a lot of fun and the turnout is fantastic. There’s a very large – and loud – crowd and everybody seems to be having a ball.” Food vendors were set up along the downtown corridor along with several area merchants and nonprofits. Live music was offered during the celebra-

folks really rallied everyone. It’s an amazing result and a place that we all enjoy, and now the whole world knows it’s America’s coolest small town.” Many area businesses were already seeing marked increases in sales. “This is the biggest crowd I think we’ve ever had,” said Jesse Turner, owner of Berlin Shoe Box. “It drew a lot of people in town and we’ve had a lot of people in here looking today.” “The turnout is fantastic – even bigger than the Fiddler’s Convention was last year,” said Debbie Sutton, a cashier at Town Center Antiques. “I think it’s good for business. I’ve met a lot of people who have never been to Berlin before that live in this area. I think it’s even bigger than anyone expected.” Berlin Economic and Community Development Director Michael Day agreed with Williams’ decision to move the party back two weeks from its original date. “It was a last-minute decision and it was absolutely brilliant that he called that,” he said. “Now here we are with the biggest crowd we’ve probably ever had. Who can complain about that?” “The older I get the more I understand that things are meant to be,” Williams said. “The bad weather was meant to be so that we could be here for today, and kids of all ages – regardless if they’re 4 or 94 – can come out here and have a little fun.”

Coastal Hospice names three new members to board

(April 18, 2014) Three members have joined Coastal Hospice & Palliative Care’s board of directors. Michael Dunn has personal experience with the organization. Coastal Hospice cared for his mother in 1996 when she was battling cancer. “Since that time, I’ve been a fan of all Michael Dunn things hospice,” Dunn said. “When I was asked to serve on the board, it was an easy yes.” Dunn is a graduate of Wicomico High School and Salisbury University, and former president of the Salisbury City Council. He is involved with the Wicomico Relay for Life and is the chair of Salisbury’s annual July 4 “Red, White and Boom.” Edwin Rommel III joined the board after studying the Coastal Hospice mission statement and wanting to fill a “slight void” his other volunteer efforts have left. Rommel is coEdwin Rommel founder of Twilley, Rommel & Stephens, P.A., Certified Public Accountants, of Salisbury. He has served as president of the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce and previously concentrated his non-business efforts on civic and professional organizations. “My hope is that my involvement will be meaningful to the community, the organization and to me,” Rommel said. Andrea Baier, M.D. joined the Coastal Hospice board because she has firsthand knowledge of what hospice does. “I have served as the hospice physician for several patients Andrea Baier and been impressed by the level of care that is given, as well as the deep compassion with which the employees provide that care. It’s very motivating to get involved with such an important part of healthcare and our community,” she said. Baier attended Lafayette College and Hahnemann University School of Medicine. She is board certified in internal medicine and hospice and palliative care. Coastal Hospice is a nonprofit health care organization that cares for individuals facing life-limiting conditions but who want to remain as active and engaged as possible. Coastal Hospice cares for patients in their home, nursing home, assisted living facility or at Coastal Hospice at the Lake.
