CITYTOPUTPOLICE BACK ON PENSION Two years after switch to 401(a),FOP returns new hires to defined-benefit retirement fund ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

OCEAN CITY TODAY/BRANDI MELLINGER

OCEAN CITY ‘RUNS FOR BOSTON’ Run For Boston 4/17, an online community group formed this week, encouraged runners across the nation to show their support Wednesday for those affected by Monday’s horrific bombings in Boston. Thirteen Worcester County residents gathered that evening at the Boardwalk Arch for a unified run on the boards. Among them was Diane Walsh, at right, who finished the Boston Marathon and fortunately cleared the finish line area just minutes before the bombs went off, killing three and injuring 178, including several who lost limbs in the blast. City and county officials have reportedly already met with representatives from the Susan G. Komen Foundation regarding additional security and precautions at this Sunday’s Race for the Cure in Ocean City. The run, to benefit cancer research, drew 3,600 people last year and is expected to be even larger this weekend.

(April 19, 2013) Ocean City government will soon make an abrupt change of course on its retirement policy, as a provision of the Fraternal Order of Police’s new labor contract stipulates a Resort Mayor return to the defined-benRick Meehan efit, or guaranteed payment, pension system. This is even though city officials seem to be unclear of the potential impact the change

“I think they agreed, after the way we presented it, that it was the best way for them to move forward and for us to continue to be able to offer that plan at a reduced benefit.”

MAYOR RICK MEEHAN will have. Under the FOP’s contract, ratified this week by the council for a two-year duration beginning in July, the 22 officers whom the Ocean City Police Department have hired since See CITY on Page 8A

County votes against state development law NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Thumbing their noses at the state, the Worcester County Commissioners voted Tuesday not to adopt septic tier maps pushed by the General Assembly last

year to limit the proliferation of major residential subdivisions served by septic systems. The vote means no subdivisions of six or more lots on septic will be permitted anywhere in the county, but the commissioners are working See COMMISSIONERS on Page 10A

City inks $1.15 million deal with police, firefighter unions Two-year contract with FOP, three-year agreement with IAFF restore some wages ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) The Town of Ocean City finalized its contracts this week with the resort’s public safety unions, but at least one city official has claimed that the town failed to do its research before putting its collective signature on the deals. “Has anyone else seen these figures prior to tonight?” Councilman Brent Ashley asked his colleagues, regarding a run-down of final contract provisions that was given to the council on the evening of the contracts’ approval vote. “Maybe not in this exact format, but you’re not seeing anything new here that you haven’t seen before,” retorted City Manager David Recor. “We were very up-front and came back to the full mayor and council about the parameters we would be working in,” agreed Council President Lloyd Martin, who served on the city’s negotiating team “But this is the first time the public has seen them, in any form,” Ashley countered. “I can’t support this contract tonight … I would like to make a motion

that we postpone the vote on these contracts until the council has had a chance to examine all of the cost information and public has a chance to offer comment.” Ashley’s motion died for lack of a second, and the council voted 5-1, with Ashley in objection, to approve the contracts. Councilmember Margaret Pillas was absent from this week’s session. Under the final cost projection provided by the city on Monday night, the resort’s chapter of the International Association of Fire Fighters will receive an additional $479,134 in wages over the three years of the contract’s life, versus a situation in which their pay stayed at the rate in the current budget year. The city’s chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police will receive $675,391 in increases over the next two fiscal years, after which their contract will be up for re-negotiation. “We were able to give some increments and two step raises back [that were eliminated in previous budget years],” said Mayor Rick Meehan. Meehan said the FOP’s total annual wages at the end of the contract’s life will be $5,683,879 – $387,694 less than its 2008-09 budget year payroll, when the Ocean City Police Department was at the historical peak of its manpower and funding. The FOP represents all non-seasonal

sworn officers in the OCPD, up through the rank of sergeant. The new contract will have the FOP receive an incremental increase – based on a multi-step table of officers’ rank and years of experience – at the onset of the 2014 fiscal year this July. Halfway through the coming budget year, in January 2014, all those officers who were eligible for a raise in 2010 but did not receive one due to budget cuts will receive another increment. At the beginning of FY15, in July of next year, officers who did not receive their scheduled raise in 2011 will be granted one. In January of 2015, another incremental increase will be granted to the entire workforce. For the IAFF, which represents all full-time, non-volunteer members of the Ocean City Fire Department up through the rank of lieutenant, an organizationwide increment will be granted at the beginning of this fiscal year, and another in January of 2014. Further increases will be given at the beginning of FY15 and FY16. Additionally, the OCFD’s rank structure will be simplified to consolidate the ranks of 2nd lieutenant and lieutenant into a single position, with a new pay scale that is between that of the two obsolete ranks. All current 2nd lieutenants will be promoted to the new position. The old lieutenant’s pay scale will con-

tinue to exist for those who are already “full” lieutenants. “I know when you pay that tax bill every year, it’s a tough thing to do,” said IAFF Mike Maykrantz. “But if you’ve ever had to use our service, you see that your investment comes back to you.” The IAFF’s new contract also concedes a number of scheduling rights to the city. Under the new labor agreement, new OCFD hires can be assigned to any combination of shifts, as long as their hours stay consistent over periods of four weeks. Under the old agreement – still applicable to current IAFF members – fire and EMS personnel had to be scheduled using a 24 hours on-duty, 72 hours offduty cycle. “We wanted to change those provisions because we wanted to give management more flexibility, so we modified that to where they could be assigned to any shift,” Meehan said. “We’ll be able to work better for the scheduling of the whole department.” The contract also codifies the OCFD’s procedure for back-filling vacant shifts due to sickness or emergency. Part-time personnel who will not incur overtime must be utilized first, followed by fulltime personnel who are on their offweek with fewer shifts. This will reduce cost to the department by cutting overtime pay for higher-earning employees.

City pilot program offers larger surfing beaches,more inlet time (April 19, 2013) In an attempt to address the highly variable nature of both the demand for surfing and the supply of decent waves, the city will be piloting a system this summer that will allow for considerably more flexibility in the size and scope of its surf beaches. “The people I’ve talked to would rather have more space than a third separate beach,� said K-Coast owner Chris Shanahan, a member of the city’s surf beach subcommittee. Although the idea had been floated of adding a third, rotating surfing beach on weekends during the summer, the option was found to be untenable this week after Ocean City Beach Patrol Captain Butch Arbin presented an outline of how such a rotation would look. “The beaches that are included in the rotation [for a third beach] will be hit more often than the ones at the extreme south and north end. That’s just how it works out,� Arbin said. Although designating specific sections of beach for surfing only may be in the best interest of safety, it comes at a price to the city’s condominium and hotel owners, who typically dread days when the beach in front of their facilities is reserved for surfers and off limits to bathers, who likely make up most of

d

their clientele. “Some of these places are seeing a 50 percent increase in the number of days they’ll be closed,� said Councilman Dennis Dare. “It’s not fair to them. And you’re hitting some of the highest density areas in town.� Instead, the city will be stipulating this year that the OCBP has the ability to double the size – from one block to two – of both rotating surf beaches, depending on how much demand it anticipates given the quality of the surfing conditions. The Beach Patrol will also have the discretion to keep the inlet surf beach – normally closed on summer weekends – open through the first half of June and again in the latter half of August, conditional on the number of swimmers. “I think the most we can ask for is to keep [the inlet] open until you guys see crowds you can’t handle,� said Shelly Dawson of the Ocean City Surfriders’

Foundation. “Especially in June, it’s chilly water and the crowds aren’t there. But it’s not fair to impact some of these places three and four times [per season.]� Current city regulations mandate that proper surfboards – those with fins or those more than 54 inches long - are prohibited on city beaches from the hours of 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and specifically along Boardwalk-adjacent beaches from May 1 to Sept. 30. During those times, the city has a rotating surfing beach schedule that limits summer daytime surfboard use to two select blocks of beach, which change daily, as well as the southern half of the inlet beach on weekdays only. However, surfers say this is not enough, given the sport’s recent resurgence in popularity. But with the city’s last undeveloped oceanfront block being built up circa 1980, according to Arbin,

the resort’s beach is now completely lined with hotels and condominiums whose owners expect the beach in front to be available for tourists. Cycles of demand from bathers and surfers, though, do tend to run in opposite phases. “The reason you get really hot weather, when the beaches are packed, is when you have no wind,� Arbin said. “When it’s that hot, it becomes ‘Lake Ocean City’ and no one is going to surf anyway.� However, despite maintaining what it considers to be an excellent relationship with the surfing community, the OCBP has long been reluctant to use its own best judgment in allowing surfing outside of a rigid schedule, for fear of causing conflict with bathers. “I really want to avoid a situation where a family is set up and then we have them move to expand the surf beach,� said OCBP Lt. Ward Kovacs. “That’s when people become hostile.� The Beach Patrol has relaxed these concerns in recent meetings with the committee, however, on the stipulation that the decision to expand the beaches will be made before they open, and could then be retracted if few surfers are seen to be coming – not vice-versa. “I don’t think that the regular beachgoers are going to complain if we give them more space later on,� Arbin said.

Fish Tales’ Harman awarded ‘Restauranteur of the Year’title Macky’s Bayside named Md.FavoriteBar orTavern at Star of the Industry gala LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) Six Ocean City restaurants were up for awards Monday night during the Restaurant Association of Maryland’s 59th annual McCormick & Company “Star of the Industry” gala in Baltimore, and two brought home prestigious titles. Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill on 54th Street was a winner in the “Favorite Bar or Tavern” category. “It’s nice to be honored ... I’m tickled to death,” said Macky Stansell, who owns the restaurant on the bay with his wife, Pam. “It’s wonderful. There are a lot of great restaurants in Ocean City and in Maryland.” Macky’s will celebrate its 20th season in business on 54th Street when it reopens on April 25. “Just to be [nominated] is an honor and speaks volumes for what our staff has done,” he said. “The location is good and the staff is the best in town. Food is

also a big part of the experience, but service is very important.” Although Macky’s won the “Favorite Bar or Tavern” award, Stansell wants customers to know the establishment is more than just a local watering hole, but a restaurant as well. The Stansells take pride in fact that the restaurant offers top-notch customer service. The view is also a big reason people come to Macky’s, which sits directly on the bay. Patrons can have lunch or dinner on the restaurant’s beach or in the dining room or bar area. “The atmosphere is what it’s all about. It’s a wonderful place to be,” Stansell said. Dead Freddies Island Grill, on 64th Street in Ocean City was a finalist in the “Favorite Bar or Tavern” category, as well. The final award of the night was presented to the Restaurateur of the Year. Restaurant Association of Maryland members choose the recipient of this award, which went to Fish Tales owner Shawn Harman. “I was quite surprised. It was very humbling because it’s voted on by your peers,” said Harman, who was accompanied to the gala by his daughter, Devon. “My daughter said she was proud of me.” Harman said he receives all of the See OTHER on Page 7A

City says finances relatively similar; actuarial data not yet public Continued from Page 1A

2011 will have their individualized retirement accounts converted back into the group pension trust, which the council had moved just two years ago to begin phasing out. In the ordinance introduced to council this week authorizing the switch, the city asserts “the Mayor and City Council have devised a defined benefit plan, which has a financial impact relatively similar to the cost of a defined contribution plan.” A Maryland Public Information Act request filed by this newspaper to review the financial studies that address this, however, will be delayed. City Manager David Recor said he “did not want to release that information prior to the second reading of the ordinance by the council, because it was closed session material.” Recor later clarified that the council itself had not yet seen the bulk of the financial study, and reviewed only an executive summary of pension reform options during a union negotiation briefing in February. Regardless, the council voted 5-1, with Councilwoman Margaret Pillas absent, to advance the ordinance to its next stage. Councilman Brent Ashley was the sole dissenter, as the only council member in attendance who had voted two years earlier to begin eliminating the

ployees continue to receive 60 percent of their salary if they meet the vesting threshold of 25 years of service. The pensions for those with less service are prorated down by the fraction of time they are short. Following a series of heated debates in city council from late 2010 through the spring of 2011, the pension fund was closed to new hires. While employees currently enrolled in the defined-benefit system will stay in the plan, all new hires after April of 2011 have a system of individualized 401(a) accounts. The benefit of this is the elimination of long-term liability, once the plan is closed and all of its participants are deceased. At that time, all employees would be responsible for their own 401(a) retirement accounts, the sustainability of which is not the problem of the city, but the responsibility of the employee. As such, the city began raising its amortization payments in 2011, contributing a level amount each year instead of the current percentage of retiree pay. But the total amount of funding in the pension trusts – about 70 percent of what is projected to be needed to compensate al the city’s retirees – has largely leveled off due to a reversal in investment earnings. Because no new employees are paying into the plan with money to support those already retired, the city has had to

pension trust system. “Virtually every city in the country, as well as the federal government, are looking for ways to reduce long-term debt and enact pension plan reforms,” Ashley said. “Ocean City was one of the first cities to achieve this with the adoption of an excellent 401(a) pension plan for new hires,” he said. Now, despite the success of the 401(a) plan and a large unfunded liability in the public safety defined-benefit plan, the FOP and the majority of this council want to go back to the defined benefit plan, further increasing the longterm debt.” The success of the 401(a) plan apparently led to the local chapter of the International Association of Firefighters to opt out of a switch to the defined benefit pension system in its new contract. Although the council votes were there to restore the IAFF’s former pension program as well, the union membership declared its preference for the 401(a). Under a defined benefit system — the traditional pension — employees contribute a certain amount of their paycheck each week to a group retirement investment fund. Police and fire employees, who have a separate fund from the general employee body, contribute eight percent of their pay, and the city matches this amount with its own contribution, Upon retirement, public safety em-

increase its payments further. The decision to put the FOP’s new members back into the pension plan is less financial, according to the FOP, and more recruitment-oriented. Its position is that the lack of a city-secured pension puts it at a disadvantage versus other jurisdictions in attracting quality officers. “It’s an essential component to them for recruiting,” Mayor Rick Meehan said. “I think they agreed, after the way we presented it, that it was the best way for them to move forward and for us to continue to be able to offer that plan at a reduced benefit.” The new plan for post-2011 employees will offer a slightly less generous benefit, requiring the retiree to be aged 55 as well as having 25 years of service, and basing their pay off the average of the last five years of work, instead of their last three. In order to do so, however, the 22 officers hired under the 401(a) system since July 2011 will need to surrender the monies in their individual accounts to the city’s pension trust. All officers will receive the same pension benefit regardless of how much their initial contribution was, something that Ashley found to be akin to “forced socialization of the retirement system.” According to FOP President Shawn Jones, all 22 officers agreed to the switch prior to the negotiations being finalized.

The inaugural event, which included a 5k timed competitive run, a 5k recreational run/walk and 1-mile fun walk on the resort’s Boardwalk, drew 3,662 registered participants.

Commissioners retain county’s right to develop on septic, not sewer Continued from Page 1A

to help the property owners affected by their decision. Although Commissioner Judy Boggs said she wanted “to thumb my nose at the state,” she cast the only vote against the motion to not adopt the septic tier maps. Commissioner Virgil Shockley noted that the county has not had a major subdivision on septic in 25 years, but owners of two large properties want the right to develop their land. Attorney Mark Cropper, who represented the Nichols family that owns the former Calvin Gumm farm on Route 589, and Ocean City Golf Club, which owns land near South Point, said he had never been so conflicted when representing clients. He was the only speaker during the public hearing in favor of adopting maps identifying where major and minor subdivisions may be located and what type of sewage system would serve them, but he was sympathetic to the other side. “What is the lesser of two evils?” Cropper said. “To map or not to map?” The state, Cropper said, “is dictating to Worcester County how we do things.” So many laws must be followed and so many permits must be obtained for anyone to develop property that land owners need to have a team of consultants and an attorney to navigate the permit process.

according to the amount of impervious surfaces on their property. McDermott sees that tax eventually spreading to the Eastern Shore, where farmers could be taxed for roofs on their chicken houses. “They’re bullies and they don’t understand ‘no,’ “ McDermott said. “What bothers me most is the loss of autonomy of the county,” McDermott said. “I ask you to stand up for yourselves.” McDermott and other speakers suggested the commissioners take the state to court to preserve rights. “If you have to go to court to preserve autonomy, do it,” McDermott said. County attorney Sonny Bloxom could be seen working on that idea during the remainder of the public hearing. He left the room and returned a few times, each time handing Commission President Bud Church a yellow piece of paper. The notes referred to the possibility of a lawsuit against the state. Church said they would consider filing a lawsuit, but taking on the state would most likely lose “a great amount of money.” Bloxom said a court battle could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and would not be successful. “There is no way the court system is going to overturn what the legislature has done,” Bloxom said. The commissioners will “weigh the pros and cons in closed session,” Church said.

ACLU claims Bdwk.performer’s rights violated NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Ocean City and its rules for Boardwalk performers are again targets of a federal lawsuit. The American Civil Liberties Union announced last week that it was challenging what it called an unconstitutional ordinance that has been silencing musicians. The ACLU filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on behalf of William Hassay Jr., a violinist who has performed on the Boardwalk for nearly two decades. Because the tourist season is near, the ACLU seeks a preliminary injunction to suspend enforcement of the resort’s ordinance while the case is under review. “When will Ocean City officials learn that there doesn’t have to be tension be-

tween protecting the free speech of performers and ensuring a good time for all on the Boardwalk?” Deborah Jeon, legal director for the ACLU of Maryland, asked in a press release. “Bill Hassay has added beauty to the Boardwalk for nearly two decades, created memories for families and taken pride in entertaining the public there. Summer is coming and it’s time to let the music play.” The U.S. District Court has previously ruled that Ocean City’s Boardwalk is a public forum, meaning the city government may not place an undue burden on constitutionally protected free speech. According to the ACLU, Ocean City police last summer threatened to arrest Hassay because of violating the resort’s noise ordinance. The ACLU press release said the noise ordinance “deems all music played on the Boardwalk from an

instrument or device to be ‘unreasonably loud,’ and thus criminally prohibited, if it ‘audible’ from a distance of 30 feet.” The ACLU maintains that Ocean City’s 30-foot restriction on music violates the First Amendment and “just makes no sense.” To test the distance sound can travel on the Boardwalk, the ACLU worked with an independent acoustical engineer who analyzed ambient sound there. He found that the jingling of a dog collar on the Boardwalk can be heard more than 30 feet away. Therefore, according to the ACLU, the Boardwalk performers are “effectively prohibited from playing any music that anyone could hear.” Hassay, who is being represented pro bono by Jeon and attorneys with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe of Washington,

PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS

(April 19, 2013) The Ocean City HotelMotel-Restaurant Association has partnered with Diakonia for “Diakonia’s Dine Out Days,” set to take place Wednesday and Thursday, April 24-25. “We think the cause is great. Diakonia is a wonderful organization,” said Susan Jones, executive director of the OCHMRA. “We encourage everyone to dine out because it is such a great cause.” The Diakonia residence, located in West Ocean City, provides emergency and transitional housing, food services, counseling and assistance to its guests. All of the funds raised through “Diakonia’s Dine Out Days” will be used to support programs and services in the community. As of Monday, 16 restaurants had registered to participate in the event. Each will donate a percentage of profits garenered April 24 and/or April 25. Four other restaurants — Shark on the Harbor, BJ’s on the Water, Hooters and Baxter Enterprises/McDonalds — have made monetary donations. The registration deadline for restaurants to be included in the event’s promotional material was April 12. Restaurants may still register through April 22, but they will not be featured in the published restaurant list/marketing materials. “It’s an opportunity for local restaurants to support local people in need of food, shelter and support services,” said Debbi Anderson, Diakonia board member and special events chairwoman. “Community members are asked to gather their friends, families, co-workers and ‘Dine Out’ at a participating restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Enjoy a meal out and help others at the same time.” In 2012, Diakonia established its first special events committee with community volunteers who support the organization’s efforts. “With their many years of experience in the Ocean City community, they developed ideas for fundraising events [and]

this was one of them,” Anderson said. Last year, the event, “Dine Out for Diakonia,” was held only one day. Twentysix restaurants participated and more than $6,000 was raised for Diakonia, which provides emergency and transitional housing, food assistance and support services 365 days a year. For more than 40 years, the organization has brought “help for today and hope for tomorrow to the members of our community who are dealing with the issues of homelessness and hunger,” Anderson said. This year, “Diakonia’s Dine Out Days” will take place two days. “We’re excited for the upcoming event. It sort of kicks off our fundraising season,” said Claudia Nagle, Diakonia’s executive director. “It’s one of those events where everyone wins. People get to have a nice afternoon or evening out and support local businesses and help those who use Diakonia’s services. We’re very appreciative of the community for supporting us.” For more information, contact Anderson at 410-250-0315.

STEM program moves from Wallops to Ocean City NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Worcester County students will not miss out on the opportunity to participate in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program just because federal funding was cut for the summer program at Wallops Flight Facility. Economic Development Director Bill Badger asked the Worcester County Commissioners just a few weeks ago for time to come up with an alternative. He presented his plan Tuesday to a receptive body of commissioners. Badger’s “Plan B” is a new

summer camp in Ocean City, a local version of the Wallops STEM Enrichment Program. The program, which will be funded by the $77,000 the county had planned to use as matching funds for the Wallops program, closely mirrors the original. “That program changed a lot of lives,” Badger said. When the STEM program was at Wallops, county students participated in that program for several years with considerable success. Three of the participants won scholarships from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that paid for their entire educations after completing high school.

“That’s an outstanding reminder of how bright our kids are,” Commissioner Judy Boggs said. Brenda Dingwall, who was recently named Woman of the Year by the Worcester County Commission for Women, helped develop the program for this summer. She had the necessary experience because she developed the program for students at Wallops Flight Facility, where she manages its equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion program. She told the commissioners she wanted the program “to continue to serve students.” The 2013 Reach for the Stars STEM Camp will be a day camp

No smoking for senior citizens at county centers NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Senior citizens in Worcester County are being told to butt out, literally. The Worcester County Commissioners voted Tuesday to add property owned or used by the County Commission on Aging to its list of smoke-free sites. Rob Hart, the commissioner’s executive director, said he wanted the policy to be in effect July 1 at the four buildings used for seniors. The request included the grounds.

Senior centers in Ocean City, Berlin, Snow Hill and Pocomoke will be smokefree. The policy applies not only to the senior citizens, but also to staff, visitors and others who might be on the property. Hart made his request because of the commissioners’ Jan. 2 vote to institute a no-smoking policy at its Health Department offices and at its parks. The policy prohibits not only smoking cigarettes and pipes, but the use of any form of tobacco such as snuff and spit tobacco, in a restroom or at any spectator or concession area and playground at any county facility. The use of tobacco is also prohibited within 100 yards of an

organized activity at a county facility. The county Health Department offices and parks facilities became tobaccofree Feb. 1. Starting May 1, the entire Heathway Drive area, which includes a health department office, Atlantic General Hospital, the Barrett Medical Building and the Berlin Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, will be smoke-free. Tracey Hall, chairwoman of the Wellness Committee at Atlantic General Hospital, made that announcement during the county’s fourth annual public health conference at the Clarion Fontainebleau in Ocean City on April 3.

STEM Camp set for July 22-26, July 29 to Aug. 2 Continued from Page 13A

held at The Red Doors Community Center at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church on Third Street and Baltimore Avenue. It will operate from Monday, July 22, through Friday, July 26, and from Monday, July 29, through Friday, Aug. 2. Daily schedules include a mix of icebreakers and team-building activities, STEM instructional sessions, STEM teamwork in hands-on lab sessions, field trips and recreation. Lunch and snacks will be provided onsite each day. Students will work in teams with other

students of similar levels of ability to complete tasks. The team will consist of a curriculum specialist instructor, a state-certified special education teacher and two camp counselors with specialized training to work with students with disabilities or communication difficulties. A project manager and a registered nurse will be onsite at all times during the camp’s operation. Up to 80 children may participate in the program. It will be run by Fawn and Ryan Mete. Fawn Mete founded The Red Doors Com-

munity Center at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in 2012. The center offers educational and enrichment programs for children and adults. She serves as its director. Ryan Mete is a computer science teacher at Salisbury Middle School, where he was a leader on the team that developed the first middle school STEM academy for Wicomico County. The commissioners voted unanimously for the Economic Development Office to contract with the Red Doors program and the Metes to run it for this summer.

Impersonated officer A 25-year-old Bordertown, N.J., man was arrested April 13 after reportedly impersonating a police officer and being intoxicated to the point of endangering himself or others. According to Ocean City police, Daniel Joseph Sasso had been evicted from a midtown hotel earlier because of his intoxication. After he was evicted, Sasso called police to report a domestic dispute on the fourth floor of the hotel. Police found no evidence of such a dispute. Sasso told police he was a New Jersey state trooper who worked undercover in Atlantic City. When Ocean City police called New Jersey State Police to verify Sasso’s

story, they were told he was not a state trooper. In the charging document, police stated that Sasso was so intoxicated he was unaware of what he was doing to other people’s property.

Marijuana bust Officers with the Berlin Police Department arrested two people on April 11 after finding marijuana in a Bay Street apartment. They went to the unit to check on the welfare of children. They saw evidence of marijuana inside the residence and during a search, they found the drug on Michael Jackson, 19, of Berlin. They charged him with possession of marijuana. They found a larger amount of marijuana on a 17-year-old boy, who was charged with possession of the drug and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute it.

Man suffers serious injuries in Ocean City assault last week NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) The victim of a fight outside the 26th Street 7-Eleven last Thursday told police he did not realize he had been stabbed until he returned to his 146th Street residence. Police had been called to the convenience store because of the fight, but the people involved had left the area before they B. Hudson arrived. About 30 minutes later, they were dispatched to north Ocean City where they met with the victim, who had been attacked with a knife. He was holding a rag over one of the wounds. He suffered two stab wounds, one above his waist and the other in his chest. Both wounds and a third wound on his head were bleeding. The victim told police that a black man with dreadlocks had stabbed him. He described his attacker as being about 25 years old, approximately 150 pounds and 5 feet 10 inches tall with a skinny build. He told police the man was trying to kill him. “If I didn’t fight him off he would have

killed me,” the victim told police. Paramedics then took him to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. At the hospital, it was learned that he suffered two puncture wounds, both approximately 3 inches deep, to his abdominal area. The victim underwent emergency surgery and during surgery, it was learned that one of his stab wounds had lacerated a section of his small intestines that had to be repaired. Several staples had to be put in his head to close a laceration there. Hospital staff told police that the victim would remain hospitalized for approximately five days. Police used the victim’s description, plus a description provided by a taxi driver and footage from video surveillance from inside the 7-Eleven store to broadcast the information about the wanted suspect. Two males matching the description were stopped. One of them, Brandon Maurice Hudson, 24, of Snow Hill, said he had been at the convenience store at the time of the assault, but he denied being involved. He said he had gone to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment about one block away after the fight. When police went to the ex-girlfriend’s unit, they found and seized a black T-shirt

Suspects in OC counterfeit money crimes arrested NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer

Derrick Ryan Richardson

Justin Michael Scanlon

(April 19, 2013) Ocean City police have charged two men in connection with passing counterfeit money at resort businesses earlier this month. Police began receiving complaints about counterfeit money April 2. They took five reports of counterfeit money being passes or attempted to be passed during the next 36 hours. As part of their investigation, police identified two possible suspects and learned that police in Wicomico County and Sussex County, Del., were also investigating the passing of counterfeit money. On April 5, police in Fruitland arrested Derrick Ryan Richardson, 25, of Parsonsburg, and a female accomplice while they tried to pass counterfeit

money at a Fruitland business. Following that arrest, and with the recovery of additional evidence and surveillance video, Ocean City investigators identified the suspects who passed the counterfeit bills in the resort as Richardson and Justin Michael Scanlon, 26, of Ocean City. Both Richardson and Scanlon have been charged with theft under $100, knowingly issuing counterfeit United States currency, theft scheme and conspiracy. Richardson was also charged with manufacturing counterfeit United States currency. The passing or attempting passing of counterfeit bills in the resort area is not uncommon. The Ocean City Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crime prevention officer is available to conduct counterfeit awareness presentations to businesses and community groups.

Former Booster head goes to jail NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) The former president of the Pocomoke City Band Boosters was sentenced last Friday to three years in jail, although all but eight months was suspended.

She was charged with theft of $1,000 to less than $10,000, forgery and uttering, issuing false documents and engaging in a scheme to steal $1,000 to less than $10,000.

Approving a pension without knowing costs An incredible thing happened Monday night at City Hall: the City Council voted affirmatively on a major spending issue without knowing what it was agreeing to spend. Maybe it is not that incredible after all, but that is a fair summary of what happened, as a council majority approved a return to the old pension program for the local FOP without any real idea of the cost to Ocean City taxpayers. That is the essence of what City Manager David Recor said Tuesday, when he told the mayor and council that this paper’s state Public Information Act request for the pension ordinance’s financial data — specifically the actuarial study that details the pension’s long-term expenses — would be delayed until the council itself has had a chance to see it. What? An overwhelming council majority agreed to a significant financial commitment on its first reading without knowing what its financial impact might be? Simple logic dictates that it is either that or the mayor and council members are less concerned with the fiscal aspects of a deal struck with the FOP months ago than they are just getting it done. Regardless, not making this vital data available to the public until the pension ordinance’s second reading is like giving someone a ticket for a boat that has already sailed. Assuming they do exist, the financial studies pertaining to this pension switch might show, as the ordinance summary declares, that there is no substantial difference in cost – or taxpayer liability –between the pension program currently in place and the one the council is about to approve. But without that information, neither the public nor some council members have any way of knowing that with certainty. This is not an acceptable way to conduct the public’s business, but it is even more difficult to accept that elected officials did not have, did not want or believed they did not need that information as well.

Not long ago, the world of physics issued some fascinating news: tests involving particle accelerators have shown that maybe things can’t travel faster than the speed of light. This announcement means two things: one, no matter how hard I try, I still won’t make it to work on time and, two, someone somewhere assumed we needed to know this, just in case some of us were inclined to fritter away a rainy Sunday with our own light speed experiments at home. That is a major relief to me, considering that every time I thought about building my own particle accelerator in the garage, Ace Hardware was fresh out of neutrons, at least in the color combination I wanted. The truth is I’m not much good at physics anyway, other than understanding that this particular science is used to explain other things that I don’t understand, such as why the water in the toilet always swirls in the same direction and numerous other great mysteries of the universe.

Quaker used to say in its early promotions that puffed wheat and its pale half-sibling, puffed rice was “shot from guns.” The cereal box package for a time actually had a cannon and a Quaker on it, which I found to be incongruous, since Quakers are nonviolent and therefore unlikely cannoneers, cereal or otherwise. Nevertheless, I was inspired by this stunning feat of science as a child and decided early on that what I wanted to be when I grew up was a “Puffed Wheat Cannoneer.”

I harbored the dream of going to my first career day at school and declaring, “I’ll be a cereal-shooting so-and-so.” Only later did I discover that this was mostly a marketing gimmick and not one grain of puffed anything ever exited the barrel of artillery of any kind. And just recently in my heavy early morning research, I stumbled across an Internet site called the “Physics of Cereal” that rekindled my old curiosity. It turns out that puffed wheat and the aforementioned pale half-sibling are blown up, more or less, in a big pressure cooker, the first version of which was fashioned out of an actual Spanish-American War cannon. The site’s deeper explanation of “gun puffing” as it is called, goes on to explore what happens when you put wheat under high pressure and release that pressure it all at once. Suffice to say, it’s what happened to Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Total Recall,” except for the pop-out eyes, of course. And why did that happen? If you ask me, it’s all very simple. It’s just physics.

Gym owners unhappy with free facility The following letter was sent to the Ocean City mayor and City Council, and forwarded to Ocean City Today for publication: Mr. Mayor and Distinguished Council Members, This letter is being written in response to an article published in Ocean City Today and in the recently released community calendar and newsletter announcing the new outdoor workout facility located at Northside Park, which was recently opened by the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. This facility, which is located just 10 blocks from our business, will severely impact our summer business. As you know, most businesses in Ocean City require the summer months to survive. Gold’s Gym is no different. In fact, we break even three months per year, lose money five months per year and must make enough money through the months of May, June, July and August to recoup the losses and make a small profit for the year. We purchased the Gold’s Gym located in the Gold Coast Mall on July 2, 2010. Since that time, we have spent approximately $250,000 to expand and renovate the facility and incurred an additional $110,000 in startup losses during the first few years. Now, as the business is poised to turn the corner, our local government decides to open a competing business. Ocean City Recreation and Parks’ decision to spend taxpayers’ money to build a free facility in direct competition with our business was and is counter-productive to the Town of Ocean City fostering a businessfriendly environment and generating tax revenue from local businesses. We understand their desire to provide activities for the local community, but it should not be their charter to directly compete with the local businesses while doing so. If this is the case, why aren’t they opening “free” outdoor mini golf courses, “free” bicycle rental facilities and “free” water sports equipment facilities, just to name a few. In fact, why doesn’t the Town of Ocean City start opening “free” restaurants and “free” retail shops to directly compete with those industries, if this is the direction our local government funded agencies are going to pursue? We are kindly requesting this facility be closed immediately, but if the decision is to choose not to do so, then we are requesting to be compensated for lost business either in the form of a grant or extended tax credits.

An awards ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. in the Race Village, where the main stage will be set up. The village will also feature live entertainment, sponsor and partner tents. Parking will not be available in the inlet lot. A shuttle bus will make runs from the convention center to the Race Village from 5 a.m. to noon, continuously. The Ocean City bus will run all day. The cost is $1 per ride or $3 for an all-day pass. “It’s a great weekend for runners or walkers, singles, couples or families to come out and enjoy Ocean City during the off season. We have a great race route, and awesome activities planned,”

Mandes said. The goal this year is to register 5,000 participants and to raise $435,000. As of Tuesday morning, approximately 2,500 participants from 22 states and Washington, D.C., had signed up. According to the Ocean City race page on the www. komenmd.org Web site, more than $227,000 had been pledged by April 18. “We have been working on building a destination weekend for the race. This year we have added three new components in hopes that the registrants make a weekend of family fun,” Mandes said. The festivities kick off tonight, Friday, with a Concert for the Cure at Seacrets on 49th Street from 7-9 p.m. The cost is $5 with all proceeds benefiting Komen Maryland. Monkee Paw will perform during the party. On Saturday, Planet Maze on 33rd

Street will host a laser tag activity from 3-5 p.m. The cost is $12 per person, $6 of which will go to the organization. An ice skating event will take place Saturday evening at the Carousel Hotel on 118th Street from 5-7 p.m. The cost is $10 per person with all proceeds being donated to Komen Maryland. Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised during the second annual Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure will go to local and statewide programs that offer breast health services, from screening and treatment to support. The remaining 25 percent will fund research grants at institutions across the country to support Komen for the Cure’s mission to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Komen Maryland has provided more

D.C., just wants to continue performing on the boards. “All I want to do is play my music and share the emotions, the joy and romance of the violin with people on the Boardwalk,” Hassay said in the press release. “I hope to return to the Boardwalk this summer and once again help to create memories that vacationing families will long remember.” According to the ACLU, the resort “has an unfortunate history of infringing on the rights of artists and performers.” In 2011, spray paint artist Mark Chase successfully challenged Ocean City’s law requiring permits for Boardwalk performers and forbidding them to sell their work in certain areas. Chase, who paints sci-fi landscapes, was arrested at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor that same summer for violating restrictions there. The Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties organization that provides free legal services to people whose constitutional and human rights have been threatened or violated, filed the lawsuit on Chase’s behalf. City officials agreed to cease enforcing ordinances limiting his ability to create and sell his artwork. They also stopped requiring performers to register with the city. Performances remain banned in the area of North Division Street, which is off limits because of safety concerns. Emergency vehicles use a ramp there to get on the off the Boardwalk.

City braced for part-time hour reductions; skate park may see further closings ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) To avoid picking up the cost of additional health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, Ocean City government will spread out its parttime hours among more employees so those who do put in more hours at certain times of year will not fall into the federal government’s full-time category. This will mean a drastic reduction in work time for some high-volume employees, the City Council was informed during budget sessions this week. “We’ve added an additional five parttime employees to get everyone down to around 28 hours [per week],” Convention Center Director Larry Noccolino told council. “They took it very well. I was actually kind of surprised.”

Noccolino’s department has seven of the 40 municipal employees who are already over or in danger of going over the 1,560 hour-per-year threshold that will now entail a federal mandate that they receive full-time health insurance benefits. City Manager David Recor gave the totals to the council this week. “This is a referendum handed down by the federal government, which is how we explained it to them,” Noccolino said. “We’re going to reduce their hours gradually up until around Labor Day weekend, by which time they’ll all be at around 28. Some of those employees will see their hours cut by half and the lost work replaced by additional part-time or temporary employees, in order to avoid insurance liability to the city. Medical benefits typically add 35 per-

cent to the cost of an employee, according to city Budget Manager Jennie Knapp. “I’m in the process of managing that now,” said Kate Gaddis of the city’s Recreation and Parks Department. “It’s a huge challenge, I will say. We will have to bring on more employees. It won’t change the total budget, but we do need to cover the hours … we have recreation programs going on seven days per week.” However, this year’s Recreation and Parks budget already includes a reduction not just in individual employee hours, but also in overall service, to the city’s Ocean Bowl Skate Park because of the restrictions. The facility will be closed for January and February, with restricted hours in the spring and fall of 2014. This will slash the facility’s personnel budget by $20,000 and bring its em-

ployees in under the threshold. Knapp said this week that a further $13,000 in reductions of staff and service are planned for the facility. Some of the park’s staff have historically worked more than 1,900 hours per year. Early this year, the city indicated that it would be facing a considerable financial and personnel crunch from the federal Affordable Care Act – popularly known as “Obamacare.” The law will require, as of January 2014, that any employer with 50 or more employees provide health insurance to any worker who is considered to be full-time and non-seasonal. Under the ACA, the definition of such an employee is one who is “reasonably expected” to work 30 or more hours per week. The IRS has advised employers that any employee who works a total of 1,560 hours or more in 2013 – i.e., 30 hours for 52 weeks – will thus have a reasonable expectation of getting insurance for 2014, unless they work for less than four months.

Mason announces retirement from co. post after 27 years (April 19, 2013) After 27 years of service in county government, Worcester County’s Chief Administrative Officer Gerald T. Mason will retire effective June 30, Mason announced this week. Mason began in the county’s employ as finance officer in 1986 and stepped up to his current office in 1994. Throughout his tenure Gerald Mason in county government, Mason’s administration went through the economic extremes that only a coastal county that is part resort and part rural can experience, from unprecedented economic growth to deep recession. Projects completed under his watch during prosperous times include construction of the Worcester County Government Center, Charles and Martha Fulton Senior Center, Worcester County Recreation Center and Animal Control in Snow Hill, the Ocean Pines and Ocean City Branch Libraries and Worcester County Health Department offices in Berlin and Snow Hill. Renovations and additions to numerous County facilities were completed under his leadership as well, including renovation of the Worcester County Court House, Pocomoke Health Center and expansion of the Worcester County Jail. Mason also successfully navigated the county through four years of steep economic decline. He and his wife, Mary Jane, have three children and one grandchild on the West Coast.

911, liquor funding system gives preference to county, city says ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Budget discussions in City Hall this week have indicated that the city will likely continue to go toe-totoe with Worcester County in the coming fiscal year regarding continuing decreases in municipal funding. As they have for decades, city officials continued to lament over the county’s dominance of public safety dollars, despite the fact that Ocean City’s own municipal services cover the bulk of Worcester County’s public safety work. “If it means telling Worcester County that we can’t afford to provide that service any longer, we may have to do that,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. Although the Ocean City Fire Department’s extensive service to West Ocean City has been a long-recognized matter of contention, the city’s other two public safety entities – the Ocean City Police Department and the city’s Emergency Services Department, which manages the town’s 911 dispatch system – identified areas this week where they have been placed at a legal and financial disadvantage to the county as well. As is the case throughout Maryland, all 911 calls made in Worcester County, including its municipalities, are routed to a central county dispatch center, located in Snow Hill. Calls originating

from municipal jurisdictions are then rerouted to those call centers. Given the volume of emergency service in Ocean City, however, the ratio is somewhat lopsided. The town handles roughly 95,000 calls per year, according to Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald. The county, as a whole, handles around 120,000. Theobald hires a crew of seasonal dispatchers to help with summer calls, but he reported this week that he is having difficulty coping with a temporary staff. “It’s getting to the point where we cannot rely, on a complete basis, on parttime employees,” Theobald said. “Each dispatcher here handles twice the volume on an annual basis that a dispatcher does in the county. The call volume [in Ocean City] has increased almost 25 percent in the last few years, but we have not increased staff at all.” The city, however, receives no funding through the state’s 911 service fees. As the primary provider, all of these monies go to the county. Only Baltimore City is recognized as its own primary provider, given that it is chartered to be almost entirely independent from Baltimore County. “That’s a legislation change, and the only other jurisdiction in the state I know of for a precedent is Baltimore City,” Theobald said. “If the change were to come where we were the primary, we are then entitled to some of those 911 fees on

your phone bill that we [the city] never see. We’re talking somewhere in the area of $400,000 on an annual basis.” Further, OCPD Captain Kevin Kirstein said that the county’s health department has completely axed the $15,000 to $20,000 it has typically given for the city’s Reducing the Availability of Alcohol to Minors (RAAM) program. “We’ve now lost all funding for the RAAM program. We will continue with it because it’s a worthwhile initiative, but the cost will come out of our overtime budget,” Kirstein said. Mayor Rick Meehan pointed out that, when the state relinquished control of the county Liquor Control Board in 2011 and turned it into a county-run Department of Liquor Control, the city’s share of alcohol proceeds dropped off a cliff. The county no longer shares its whole-

sale proceeds. “The funding we receive has been reduced dramatically,” Meehan said. “The only money we receive from the DLC is our percentage of the profits from the retail stores that are in Ocean City.” Proceeds of around $200,000 per year from the old LCB have dropped to an anticipated $39,000 this year from the DLC. Meehan said he would request a grant from the county to cover the OCPD’s cost for RAAM, 14 additional Electronic Control Devices or “Tasers,” and the training budget for officers learning to use intoxication meters to process drunken driving arrests. “All of that relates to the sale of alcohol and the problems associated with it, and I think it would be a fair … request,” Meehan said.

Forty workers to City sees signs of hope for construction economy seemajorchange ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

Continued from Page 24A

The Town of Ocean City already offers health insurance to what it considers to be full-time year-round employees. But what the city sees as full-time is no longer what the federal government sees as full-time. The city’s department heads have been advised that they will need to use “management initiatives” to mitigate this effect. This means that the hours of the employees in question will have to be cut below a projected 1,560 for the year in order to avoid providing them with insurance. Hiring additional part-time or temporary workers to pick up the slack is now a policy for most of the city’s departments, with the exception of the Ocean City Fire Department. The OCFD’s heavy dependence on overtime from EMS workers employed in other jurisdictions – some of whom work more than 2,000 hours per year in Ocean City alone – has meant that hiring additional fulltime staff will actually be less expensive than paying overtime. Although the department’s own study found 12 to be the ideal number of new full-time employees, the city will be funding six for the coming fiscal year.

(April 19, 2013) Development in the resort, both statistically and anecdotally, seems to be making its strongest comeback since the 2008 economic slump, with last month setting a post-decline record for building permit valuations, as well as the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission this week approving two new major projects. The commission gave the go-ahead Tuesday on plans for a massive expansion of the Crab Bag restaurant on 131st Street, which will now be expanding into the property immediately to its north, which was recently vacated after the Kite Loft moved its store to the new shopping center being built at 67th Street. “They’ve now acquired all the property with the Kite Loft and the offices in that area,” said Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith. The Crab Bag already has a take-out operation in the old Aquarius Condo building, which is connected to the former Kite Loft. “They’re going to demo the Aquarius building and the Kite Lot and such, and basically connect the footprint of that building with the existing Crab Bag,” Smith said. The new building will be nearly 3,800 square feet. The current restaurant does not comply with the latest city parking require-

ments, but is grandfathered in. The expansion of the building will go a long way towards helping the parking deficiency, Smith said, with the current 15 spaces being expanded to 53. “If you go back to the original Crab Bag that was just in the old house on 131st, they only had four or five spaces,” Smith said. “The house is the only thing that still has some degree of non-conformity.” The commission also re-approved an expired plan for the second building phase of the Sunburst Townhomes on 16th Street, a project whose first phase of condominium units had been built before the economic downturn but abandoned afterward. “They basically want to have their approval re-instated,” Smith said. “One of the things, as a result of that, is that phases two and three of the project had parking non-conformity. The Board of Zoning Appeals has given them a waiver to reinstate their parking credits from the first phase.” The project had been credited with the ability to have two spaces per unit instead of three, based on the layout of the structure that was there before. But since enough time has passed without redevelopment, the city could hold the developer to the new parking requirements if it so chose. “Because of the economy, they basi-

cally ran out of time. What they told the BZA was that they would like to put in the foundation now, before the season, and then start construction in the fall,” Smith said. Further, the total value of construction plans that the city has reviewed and approved is trending upwards, according to several of the city’s departments. Data compiled by city Zoning Analyst Kay Stroud shows that March of 2013 was the best March since 2008, with work values breaking $4 million for the first time since the slump. March is a good indicator for the health of resort development, Stroud said, as it typically sees a swell of permits from those trying to fit improvements in before summer hits. Although this March saw $4.5 million of development being authorized – versus $3.5 million in March 2012 – it still pales in comparison to 2008, when March permits broke $12 million. The number of permits processed, according to City Engineer Terry McGean, has remained steady for many years, indicating that small projects have continued to make headway even if the high-value work has dropped off. “You can still see that, while the number of permits we issue has remained steady, the fees – i.e., the amount of large projects – has shrunk considerably,” McGean said at a recent budget hearing.

Earth Day, Arbor Day activities on tap in Maryland and Delaware LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) Earth Day was started in the United States in 1970 by Wisconsin Sen. Gaylord Nelson to create awareness for the Earth’s environment and to encourage conservation efforts. It is observed on April 22. In 1990, Earth Day expanded internationally and today more than 500 million people in 175 countries observe Earth Day. National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday of April. In 2013, Arbor Day in the United States is Friday, April 26. The purpose of National Arbor Day is to plant and take care of trees and to raise awareness of the importance of trees and forests. Arbor Day was founded by journalist Julius Sterling Morton in 1872.

OCEAN CITY: Ocean City Elementary School second-grade classes will present skits, poems, songs and artwork during the resort’s annual Arbor Day celebration on Friday, April 26, at Northside Park on

125th Street, bayside. For more than 25 years, the Ocean City Beautification Committee has joined with OCES to bring this program to the community. The celebration will begin with light refreshments at 9:30 a.m. in the Northside Park community room. The presentation of the flags will be conducted by the American Legion Color Guard. Smokey the Bear, the United States Forest Service mascot, and Elroy the Elk, a character created for the Elks National Drug Awareness Program to spread the anti-drug message “Say NO to drugs!” are scheduled to make an appearance. Depending on the weather, the festivities will move outdoors where the students will take the stage. Also during the celebration, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan and City Council members will be presented with two awards. The first is the National Arbor Day Foundation’s “Tree City USA” award, which the town has received for the past 25 years. “We were the first first barrier island

in the country to receive the Tree City USA award,” said Donna Greenwood, chairwoman of the Ocean City Beautification Committee. The second honor that will be presented is the Maryland Community Forest and the Department of Natural Resources, Forest Service’s Maryland P.L.A.N.T. (People Loving and Nurturing Trees) Community Award, which Ocean City has received since the program’s inception 21 years ago. Students will also assist the mayor and council members in planting a tree at Northside Park as part of the Beautification Committee’s TreeMendous Program. “One of the purposes of doing this is to beautify the town,” Greenwood said. At least 20 trees have been planted at Northside Park since the event’s inception, Greenwood said. “It’s also to introduce young children to the idea of planting trees because of the benefits they bring to us.” Following the tree planting will be demonstrations by the Ocean City Police Department’s mounted police and K-9 units.

All residents and visitors are invited to attend. For more information, call Greenwood at 410-289-7060.

BERLIN: Take Pride in Berlin Week 2013 starts Saturday with the town’s annual CleanUp Day, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Sponsored by the Berlin Parks Commission and Grow Berlin Green, volunteers will gather to spruce up town parks and the downtown and nature areas. In addition to individuals, volunteer teams are also being sought. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. in both Stephen Decatur Park and Henry Park. Following the cleanup, lunch will be provided by Berlin Area Ministries United. Those who cannot attend but still wish to help can make monetary donations to offset the costs of supplies or tools and supplies for the cleanup. Residents are encouraged to do their own spring-cleaning of their properties. For more information or to pre-register for the cleanup, contact Mary Bohlen See ACTIVITIES on Page 30A

Curb markings urge against jaywalking (April 19, 2013) Prior to the peak tourist season in Ocean City, the State Highway Administration, in partnership with the Town of Ocean City, is installing curb-top markings along Coastal Highway between 52nd and 59th streets. About 100 yellow and black stencils advise â&#x20AC;&#x153;NO PEDESTRIAN Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;INGâ&#x20AC;? along Coastal Highway between marked crosswalks, where pedestrians may be tempted to cross unsafely. Efforts and programs to protect pedestrians are closely coordinated between SHA, the Ocean City Public Works Department and the Ocean City Police Department. The population of Ocean City swells between June and August to such an extent that it becomes the second most populated city in the state. As a result, the nine-mile Coastal Highway corridor becomes crowded with drivers and pedestrians, some of whom are not familiar with the region. Ocean City Police reports reveal the primary cause of pedestrian crashes to be failure of pedes-

trians to cross at marked crosswalks, or walking in a crosswalk, but against the traffic signal. The thermoplastic markings are the same material as the stamped, paverpatterned crosswalks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they are not painted, decreasing the amount of wear and tear. Each marking has a usable life of between 10 and 20 years. The SHA, OCPD and the MVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highway Safety Office remind motorists and pedestrians to follow the basic rules of the road. Drivers must stop for pedestrians at crosswalks according to Maryland law and should follow the posted speed limit, as speeding only makes it more difficult to safely stop for pedestrians. Pedestrians should cross at marked crosswalks, see and be seen traveling in a predictable manner, look left, right, left before crossing and when possible, make eye contact with drivers. The extra moment it takes to stop for a pedestrian or to walk to a crosswalk can avert needless tragedies.

City to outsource ambulance billing, consolidate fee structure ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 19, 2013) Ocean City is anticipating a windfall — currently projected at $300,000 — from a move this coming budget year to outsource its ambulance service billing to a private collector, and to consolidate its fee structure. City Finance Administrator Martha Bennett said this week that billing for emergency medical services was becoming and increasing burden on her department, which has been able to collect less and less of what the city actually charges due to the complexity of

Medicare claims adjustment. “This company comes with outstanding recommendations from Hagerstown, Cumberland, Cambridge, and Salisbury,” Bennett said. “They have 11 employees who are certified medical coding specialists. We don’t have any.” More stringent and specific Medicare claims processing, Bennett said, has meant that the federal government now has more than 65,000 different billing codes for different injuries. “There’s a lot more detail now on each injury or medical call,” Bennett said. “I only have one employee that does this and I’ve had to back them up with an-

other accountant. It doesn’t make sense to take a CPA off other duties for that.” The outsourcing company will be able to pull the city’s medical service records from the state database, reducing any clerical work on the city’s end. “They don’t have to do the uploading, it can be pulled online,” said Ocean City Fire Department Deputy Chief Chuck Barton. “I’m familiar with the company that Martha is recommending. They have an excellent reputation, and they specialize in EMS billing.” Barton also noted that the contract company is recommending that the city eliminate its two-tier system for in-town

Public invited to sustainable community planning meeting (April 19, 2013) The Ocean City Planning and Community Development Department, in partnership with the Ocean City Development Corporation, would like to invite the public to attend a meeting to gather input on the Sustainable Community Plan. The meeting will be held April 24, at 6 p.m. at the Red Doors Community Center on Third Street. “We are currently in the process of updating the existing Community Legacy Plan and it is important for us to incorporate input from the citizens of Ocean City for the plan of action,” said

Matt Margotta, Planning and Community Development director. The Sustainable Community Plan is the result of a January 2010 report, “Sustainable Maryland: Accelerating Investment in the Revitalization and Livability of Maryland’s Neighborhoods.” The report, which developed at the request of the Task Force on the Future for Growth and Development in Maryland, reviewed the state’s tool kit for revitalization and the impact of these tools over the last 15 years. The report found that the Maryland communities that have made the most

revitalization progress share the following characteristics: a specific local target area that has attained multiple state “designations” that make the community eligible for maximum access to state revitalization funding; a strong local leadership and partners from the public and private sectors that coordinate and leverage financing to implement ongoing initiatives; and a multi-year investment strategy that is both realistic and ambitious, providing a road map for local stakeholders to create a more sustainable economy and livable community life.

and out-of-town calls. Currently, ambulance fees range from $325 to $550 — depending on the level of life support given — for in-town calls. Calls originating outside the resort, which account for roughly 17 percent of the OCFD’s work, are charged considerably more. The recommended change would be to up the in-town rate by roughly $100, and charge the same for both in-town and out-of-town calls. The city was somewhat reluctant to accept this, however, given tension with the county over its lack of support for the OCFD’s out-ofjurisdiction workload in West Ocean City. “I accept the fact that the billing rate in and out may be the same to Medicare and the insurance companies, but it’s not the same to the taxpayers,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. However, in a pragmatic sense, it is of little use for the city to charge more for out-of-town calls when it knows it will not be reimbursed by Medicare. “You may be charging it for West Ocean City calls, but you’re not collecting it,” said Budget Manger Jennie Knapp. “There may be other ways to skin that cat [with county funding] other than with the ambulance billing,” Barton said. According to Bennett, the change in rates, as well as the anticipated increase in the percentage collected by the private billing company, could net the town an extra $300,000 next fiscal year.

Wooden play sets wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return DELMARVA WHOLESALE OPEN DISTRIBUTORS Now for the Season! to beach;city seeks alternative Your source for exceptionally priced (April 19, 2013) Age, overuse, and the frequency of â&#x20AC;&#x153;unauthorized night-time activities,â&#x20AC;? have exacted their toll on the popular wooden play sets on the beach and they will not be returned to their location off the Boardwalk this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have simply reached the end of their useful life,â&#x20AC;? Councilman and Recreation and Parks Committee Chairman Joe Mitrecic told City Council member this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking into what we could put out there in the near future.â&#x20AC;? The decision came from a recommendation at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recreation and Parks Committee meeting by Public Works Director Hal Adkins, who relayed that his employees had concerns about the condition of the equipment, which is pulled out of storage every spring for refinishing and repair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were never compliant with playground standards,â&#x20AC;? Adkins said, resulting in frequent loose nails and screws, as well as splintering wood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also used for other activities, for which they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended, during the later evening and early morning hours,â&#x20AC;? Adkins said, resulting in additional cleaning needs. According to city Risk Manager Eric Lagstrom, the wooden structures cause â&#x20AC;&#x153;frequent calls from the police departmentâ&#x20AC;? to his office regarding injury and the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liability. Last year, Lagstrom recorded three serious injuries: one broken arm, one broken leg, and a facial injury, resulting from the play sets. No serious injuries were recorded at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other playgrounds, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is if this equipment is used in a public park area, and if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet standards [then it exposes the town to liability],â&#x20AC;? Lagstrom said. The five wooden toys have been donated over the past 20 years to the city by various Boardwalk business owners, some of whom Adkins had spoken with about the possibility of selling the equipment and putting the money towards other youth programs, or possi-

bly new equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; see any aggravation coming from the donors [if the city sold them], just from the historical users of the toys,â&#x20AC;? Adkins said. Parks and Recreation Director Tom Shuster said he would like to see new equipment that is up to the level of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in place at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playgrounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the outset, these didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) standards that I use,â&#x20AC;? Shuster said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These were intended for residential use, not commercial.â&#x20AC;? The commission recommended, and council later approved, the sale of the toys and the earmark of the proceeds to go toward new equipment.

Worcester lost 4-3 to Parkside on the Ocean City Tennis Center courts on 61st Street.

WORCESTER’S LADY MALLARDS VICTORIOUS Prep girls’ tennis team log back-to-back wins over Sabres, Rams this week LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) The Worcester Prep tennis teams played the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres on Monday, and the following day, battled the Parkside Rams. The Lady Mallards won both competitions on their home courts in Berlin. Sophomores Tatjana Kondraschow and Mattie Maull earned 8-3 and 8-5 victories at first and second singles, respectively. Junior Claire Stickler outscored her fourth singles opponent 8-4, and freshman Sonja Walker won her fifth singles match 8-4. Captains Lydia Pritchard, a junior, and senior Parker Kellam took their first doubles contest 8-3. And sophomore Natalie Twilley and freshman Erika Smith chalked up an 8-1 victory at second doubles. “Many of my girls got down 1-2 or 23, but dug in and played their game to win. It was a great match,” said Prep

Coach Cyndee Hudson. The Worcester Prep boys’ team competed Monday without top-seeded senior captain Thomas Thornett, who was absent due to illness. The Mallards won two of seven matches on their home courts at the Ocean City Tennis Center on 61st Street. All of the players moved up a seed in Thornett’s absence. Quinn Lukas, a sophomore captain, played in the first singles spot and outscored his opponent 8-1. Sophomore Erik Zorn recorded the Mallards’ second victory. He fought through a tough match, Coach Keith Coleman said, to claim a 9-7 victory at fourth singles. “The Mallards continue to search for the consistency down the line that was their greatest strength in the 2012 season,” Coleman said. On Tuesday, the Prep girls’ team earned a 6-1 victory over the Parkside Rams, but it wasn’t easy. “Most matches were very close and went back and forth...,” Hudson said. Kondraschow recorded an 8-2 win at first singles and junior Hannah Esham edged out her third singles opponent 86. Stickler led 4-1 at fourth singles, but

the match ended with an 8-8 tie. She pulled ahead 5-0 in the tiebreaker set and came out on top 7-1. Walker scored an 86 victory at fifth singles. Kellam and Pritchard and Twilley and Smith took their doubles matches 8-6. “Both doubles went back and forth, but [Worcester] teams managed to maintain control for the final two games,” Hudson said. Worcester’s boys’ team lost 4-3 to Parkside. Thornett topped his first singles opponent 8-4 and Lukas won 9-7 at second singles. Parkside forfeited the second doubles match to Worcester. “The Mallards fell below the .500 mark for the first time in two years as they lost a heartbreaker to Parkside,” Coleman said. “Tommy Thornett returned to No. 1 singles and finished off an 8-4 victory in workman like fashion. Quinn Lukas fought back in an up and down match to squeeze out a 9-7 win, but the Worcester squad couldn’t manage another point to bring home the victory.” The Mallards are scheduled to travel to Salisbury today, Friday, for competition against the James M. Bennett Clippers.

(April 19, 2013) The Stephen Decatur and Mardela softball teams both had unblemished records as they headed into last Saturday’s game in Berlin. But after eight innings, it was the Warriors who suffered their first loss of the season. “Our kids came out sharp, playing well against a good team,” Decatur Coach Don Howard said after the Seahawks’ 4-3 victory. Decatur picked up a 1-0 lead in the third inning, but the Warriors answered in the fourth. Decatur bounced back for a 2-1 advantage in the bottom of the sixth, and the visitors evened the score in the seventh. Tied 2-2, the game went into extra innings. According to International Softball Federation rules, each team begins extra innings with a player on second base (the last player to be put out). Mardela scored one run in the top of the eighth to take a 32 lead. In the bottom of the inning, junior Taylor Black was on second base as senior Amanda Parsons stepped to the plate. She tripled to bring Black home. Junior Beth Laque got a base hit and Parsons scored to give Decatur a 4-3 victory. “We came out ready to play. Our defense was as sharp as I’ve seen it,” Howard said. “We had some trouble on offense, but we were up against a good pitcher. A couple of times we were able to break through.” Senior captain Jessica Iacona struck out three, allowed eight hits and walked three in eight innings. Black went 2-for4 with two runs scored and an RBI. “It was just two teams knocking hits. It came down to who would be the last one standing and it was us,” Howard said. See SEAHAWKS on Page 44A

(Left) Worcester Prep freshman Ross Dickerson fires off a shot during Tuesday’s game against Delmarva Christian in Berlin. Dickerson scored one goal and had an assist in Worcester’s 19-2 victory.

(April 19, 2013) The Worcester Prep boys’ lacrosse team has started and finished games strong this season, but struggled during the quarters in between. “We’ve been playing well in the first and fourth quarters,” Coach Kevin Gates said of his Mallards. “We start well and we finish well, we’ve just got to figure out the middle.” Senior captain Harrison Brennan gave the Mallards a 1-0 lead about two minutes into the first quarter of last Friday’s game against the Archmere Academy Auks in Berlin. Archmere tied the score seconds later, but Brennan put the Prep team on top 21 with 6:24 remaining in the quarter. He logged his third goal at the 5:01 mark. The Auks netted a shot with a little more than three minutes left on the clock to cut Worcester’s advantage to one. Sophomore Sam Deeley scored with 2:46 to play and 45 seconds later, senior captain Gordon Abercrombie tallied the Mallards’ fifth goal. The home team led 5-2 at the end of the first quarter. Archmere scored two goals in the opening minutes of the second quar-

ter. Brennan boosted his team’s advantage to two at the 8-minute mark. The visiting squad netted two goals in the final minutes of the half and the score was tie 6-6 at the break. Archmere tacked on three in the third quarter to lead 9-6. The Auks won 13-9. “They played really hard. We did some good things, but there [are] some things we need to fix,” Gates said. “It’s a young team. We’re getting there.” Brennan was the Mallards’ top producer with four goals. He won 15 of 21 face-offs. Prep goalie Wade Walter, a freshman, stopped 16 shots. On Tuesday, Worcester hosted the Delmarva Christian Royals and won 19-2. The Mallard led 9-0 at the end of the first quarter and 14-0 at halftime. “It’s definitely nice to get a win,” Gates said. “We’re getting better. We’re still a work in progress.” Brennan recoreded six goals and one assist. Junior Thomas Buas contributed with four goals and an assist. Walter stopped six shots in three quarters. Sophomore Ali Khan made four saves in the fourth quarter. Worcester is scheduled to travel to the Annapolis area today, Friday, to battle Calverton.

Decatur boys’ lacrosse team takes down North Caroline, 14-3 Coach pleased with solid defense, offense this week LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) The Stephen Decatur boys’ lacrosse team fired shot after shot in the opening quarter of Monday’s game on the road against North Caroline, but only two got past the Bulldogs’ goalie. “We had a lot of shots. They hit off the pipes, off the goalie a few times. I knew

once we started finishing shots it was going to be a game,” said Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum. The score was tied 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. Decatur players found their mark in the second quarter, netting five goals to go into the halftime break with a 7-2 advantage. “In the second quarter, we settled down and took the time to place our shots better. We had some open shots and we finished,” Lathroum said. The visiting Seahawks outscored the Bulldogs 7-1 in the second half to win the

game 14-3. Senior captain Andrew Ternahan led Decatur with four goals and an assist. Riley McCabe, a senior, tallied three and sophomore Shane Moore chipped in with two goals and an assist. Senior Mick Taylor scored one goal and won 15 of 18 face-offs. “We ran our offense and we were getting good looks at the goal. Seven of the goals were assisted, which is good,” Lathroum said. “We played very good defense. If [North Caroline] came in the box, we worked them. We played zone

and man-to-man defense and both worked.” Senior captain Brooks Gilbert stopped eight Bulldogs’ shots in the first half. Sophomore Will Hastings made two saves in the second half. The Easton Warriors are scheduled to travel to Berlin today, Friday, for a 5:30 p.m. game against Decatur. “If we continue to play offense the way we did [Monday] then I’ll be happy,” Lathroum said. “We’re moving the ball and looking for the next pass and if we continue to do that we’ll be successful.”

Seahawks baseball squad scores wins over Warriors and Ponies Decatur scheduled for rematch with Crabbers Monday in Crisfield LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Stephen Decatur sophomore Justin Meekins makes contact with the ball in the fifth inning, driving in two runs to give his team a 10-0 win (10-run slaughter rule) over Chincoteague on Monday in Berlin.

(April 19, 2013) The Stephen Decatur baseball team squeaked out a 42 victory over the Mardela Warriors in Berlin last Saturday, and after a day off, the boys returned to the field Monday to shut out the Chincoteague Ponies 10-0. The Seahawks led 2-0 then pulled ahead 4-0 during the April 13 matchup with the Warriors. The visitors scored two runs, but Decatur held on for the win. Sophomore Grant Donahue (one RBI) and senior Dallas Harrington each had a hit. Decatur pitchers only allowed one hit. Junior Andrew Borradaile pitched the first four innings and struck out two. Freshman Lane Dillon took the mound for the final three innings and struck out four. “We played really good defense behind them,” said Decatur Coach Rich Ferro. “Offensively, we were kind of hitting balls at people. We had a couple more strikeouts then we thought we’d have, but we got some timely hitting.”

On Monday, the Ponies traveled to Berlin to battle the Seahawks. The home team led 3-0 and tacked on four in the fourth to pull ahead 7-0. Decatur had an 8-0 advantage in the bottom of the fifth. With bases loaded, sophomore Justin Meekins’ hit got through the infield to score two runs and end the game (10-run slaughter rule). Senior Chase Church went 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Donahue contributed on offense with two hits. On the mound, he had a no-hitter, struck out eight and walked two. “Grant pitched well and the infield played well behind him,” Ferro said. “We came out and we were aggressive at the plate, we took some good swings and we tried to go the other way with some pitches, so overall we were pretty happy with them offensively and defensively.” As the Seahawks start the second half of the season, they’ll take on teams they’ve already battled once this year. Decatur is slated to travel to Crisfield on Monday to play the Crabbers. Crisfield won the March 27 game 4-0. Ferro said the shutout was tough on the Seahawks. “I’m interested to see where we stand and how much better we’ve gotten since we played Crisfield,” Ferro said.

Lady Seahawks ahead 15-0 at halftime, crush Bulldogs 19-1 Girls settle down and are unstoppable; 13 players score goals for Decatur LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) It took the Stephen Decatur girls’ lacrosse team a few minutes to get warmed up on Monday, but the Lady Seahawks seemed unstoppable once they found their groove. The squad outscored the North Caroline Bulldogs by an 18-point margin at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin. Decatur Coach “They didn’t play well to begin with, but then Bob Musitano they settled down a little bit and played their offense,” said Decatur Coach Bob Musitano. “They realized [the Bulldogs] were a weaker team, therefore, everyone went to the goal instead of playing regular lacrosse.” Senior captain Ashley Trice scored a little over three minutes into the game. She netted a second shot about a minute later to put the Seahawks on top 2-0. Senior Eileen Hayman gave Decatur a three-goal lead with 18:22 left in the half. Trice tallied her third goal less than

two minutes later. Decatur scored 11 more times in the first half to go into the break with a 15-0 advantage. The home won the competition 19-1. Thirteen Seahawks scored. Trice led the charge with three goals. Junior Sammi Quilter chipped in with two goals and two assists. Freshman Elle Bargar logged two goals and an assist. Sophomore Jillian Petito stopped 10 North Caroline shots. “We’re halfway through the season. We’re 5-1 and what I’m really looking forward to is playing Easton on Friday,” Musitano said after Monday’s game. “Easton will be a good test for them. I think they can handle that pretty well. They’re coming together. They’re a great group of kids.” Decatur is scheduled to take on the Warriors on their field in Easton tonight, Friday.

The Chincoteague Ponies traveled to Berlin on Monday to play the Seahawks. Decatur won 7-1. The Ponies took a 1-0 led in the second. The Seahawks scored two in the bottom of the third and fourth innings to gain a 4-1 advantage. Decatur knocked in three runs in the sixth to pull ahead 7-1. Black had two hits and three RBIs. Laque went 2-for-4 with an RBI. She started on the mound and in three and two-third innings she struck out three, allowed two hits and walked two.

Iacona relieved Laque in the fourth and finished the game. She allowed one hit, struck out six and walked one. At the plate, Iacona went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. “If you looked at the stats, it looked like we totally dominated, but that’s not what the game was about. We came out flat and we were not sharp on offense. Defense was OK,” Howard said. “We’ll pick it up. We got a win and we’ll keep rolling.” Decatur is scheduled top face the Crabbers on Monday in Crisfield.

The women have both taught yoga and other fitness classes at several gyms in the community, and seeing that yoga was on the rise, they wanted to be able to offer more for practicing yogis and yoginis. “We knew there was a interest in hot yoga. We knew the area was ready for it because people have been traveling to take classes,” Ehman said. The closest studios that offer hot yoga — yoga in a heated room — are Lewes, Del. and Salisbury, she said. With their own studio, they could offer longer classes in a more serene atmosphere and

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Perfectly crispy fried oysters take time and patience

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) Six regional brewing companies will be showcased Saturday at Fager’s Island during the first-ever Battle of the Brewers Springtoberfest event. “It’s the chance to do something in the spring to kick off the season and to promote local craft breweries,” said Marcos Lopez, Fager’s Island bartender and co-organizer of the event. Representatives from each brewery will be on hand from 1-5 p.m. to serve samples of several beers made by the company. Scheduled to attend are Evolution Craft Brewing Co. (Salisbury), Heavy Seas Brewing Company (Baltimore), Union Craft Brewing (Baltimore), Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales (Milton and Rehoboth Beach, Del.), Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, Md.) and 3rd Wave Brewing Co. (Delmar, Del.). Guests may sample each beer and then vote for their favorites in four categories: Best IPA (Indian Pale Ale), Best Mystery Beer, Best Spring Seasonal and Best Brewer. “All the craft brewers know each other. It’s a competition, but it’s more fun-based,” Lopez said. “There will be representatives behind each bar to talk about and describe the different beers. It’s a good chance for people to become more familiar with the beers.” Tickets cost $35 in advance and $40 at the door the day of the event and include unlimited beer tastings. All attendees will receive a commemorative Springtoberfest glass. German-style food will be offered. Music will be provided by The Bullbuckers. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Fager’s Island at 410-524-5500 or stop by the 60th Street venue.

IT’S A BATTLE FOR THE

BESTBLOODYMARY Area bars, restaurants fired up to compete for coveted title LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) Which bar or restaurant offers the most tantalizing Bloody Mary in town? That will be determined Sunday during the seventh annual “Best Bloody Mary Contest,” sponsored by Ocean 98 WOCM Irie Radio. The contest will begin at noon at the West Ocean City Greene Turtle, on Route 611. The first 20 bars and/or restaurants to register will be entered into the competition. “We only have a few more spots remaining, so I encourage any business that is thinking of competing to register soon,” said Lesley Bunting, the 49th Street radio station’s promotions director. “It’s going to be a great competition when you have businesses like Fager’s

Island, Fish Tales (a previous champion), Sunset Grille, Pour House and other great businesses competing for the title of Best Overall Bloody Mary.” Businesses may enter online at www.ocean98.com. Fish Tales Bar & Grill has won the competition the past three years. During last year’s competition, Fish Tales served a “Crabby Mary,” a Bloody Mary topped with smoked jumbo lump crabmeat and garnished with leafy celery. Manager Brandon Hemp said the popular drink will again be presented during the 2013 contest. “It is a proven winner three years in a row … We know it’s the best and we will prove that again on Sunday when we make it four in a row,” he said. Last year’s contest was held a Smitty McGee’s, on

Route 54 in Fenwick Island, Del. Fish Tales won the “Best Overall Bloody Mary” title, while Matteo’s Salsa Loco’s concoction won the “Spiciest” category and the Starboard won the “Best Presentation” award. More than 300 people attended the 2012 event. The $10 admission cost benefited the PJ Aldridge Foundation and its mission to save lives by providing funding for lung cancer research, to educate people about the disease and increase awareness. More than $3,500 was raised for the organization. On Sunday, a $10 donation at the door will allow guests, who must be at least 21 years old, to sample and judge the blends to determine the top drink, spiciest and best presentation.

(April 19, 2013) The Eastern Shore is notorious for its crispy, fried oysters. But creating the coveted crust is not as simple as one thinks. Knowledge equates perfection, so let us delve into the art of frying. Culinary historians are not sure when this method of cooking originated. According to “On food and Cooking” by Harold McGee, “the rules for sacrifice in Leviticus 2, which date from about 600 B.C., distinguish between bread baked in an oven and cooked on the griddle.” This certainly lends credence to the possibility of the first documentation of this particular cooking method. Pan frying and deep frying have a common denominator of oil but are based on different principles of cookery. Pan frying is a technique that depends on conduction and convection; in other words, the direct movement of heat from the pan to the meat. The layer of oil between the pan and food is very thin, so the convection process is also very short. Deep frying differs by adding enough oil to immerse the food in its entirety. Oil can be heated to as much as the double boiling point of water. Therefore, the exterior will cook rapidly without overcooking the center. While we are on the subject of oil, I prefer canola oil or peanut oil when frying oysters. Some recipes call for olive oil but the flavor of the oil overpowers the oysters. The salty creatures of the sea are delicate and the choice of oil is crucial. Before frying oysters, handle See CRISPY on Page 9B

Spring gem, mineral show targets jewelry collectors, creators LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 19, 2013) The third annual spring Treasures of the Earth Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show will kick off at noon today at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street. The event will showcase finished precious and semi-precious gemstones as well as opals, turquoise, geodes and crystals. Approximately 30 dealers, traveling from as far west as Ohio, as far north as New York and as far south as Florida, will be on hand this year.

“We have several new vendors that will add variety to our show,” said Barbara Haney, co-organizer of the event with Peggy Gwaltney. Dealers will also offer finished 14-karat and sterling silver, gold, classic, contemporary and handmade jewelry, pearls, beads, fossils, crystals, mineral specimens, stone carvings, fine gems, loose stones, estate and fashion pieces and wire wrappings. Jewelers can also remount and set stones or do repairs on jewelry. Guests who like making their own jewelry will have the opportunity to pick up supplies at the show.

“This is a goal of our shows to have the greatest variety of gems, minerals, crystals, fossils [and] all types of jewelry,” Haney said. Many people come back annually to purchase new things at the show. Depending on the weather, annual attendance varies from 1,100 to 1,500 during the course of the three days. Visitors will have the chance to win daily door prizes, including a pendant, a freshwater pearl necklace and silver or stone earrings. The grand prize drawing for a quarter-carat diamond ring will take place Sunday.

Show hours are Friday, noon to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $5 for adults. Children 16 and younger will be admitted free. A $1-off coupon for the show can be found in this issue of Ocean City Today or online at www.TreasuresoftheEarth.net. The show has been a fall tradition in Ocean City for more than two decades. Organizers presented the first spring show in April 2011 and it was well received by both vendors and attendees. The 2013 fall edition of the show is scheduled for Sept. 27-29.

We have been slowly raising money to fund an annual scholarship for a local high school student,â&#x20AC;? Bunting said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love to give a scholarship to a Maryland and Delaware student. Ideally, we would give the scholarships away in 2014, but it will depend on how much money we can raise as it takes quite a bit to establish the scholarship.â&#x20AC;? Last year, organizers conducted a random drawing from the list of participants to see who would host the 2013 contest and the West Ocean City Greene Turtle was chosen.

Oh yeah, folks, it’s happening. In the world of fashion, everything old is new again. If only this old broad had the foresight to save her 1940 clothes. ’Tis true the shops are full of colorful print dresses reminiscent of ye old house dress, long and short skirts and sheaths. Fashion history is repeating itself. At all special occasions, the younger set (35 to 60) are sporting solid black or black flowered prints albeit blouses or dresses. Finding that cool ’40s-style, little black flowered dress that I lived in, so said my partying friends, could be beyond the realm of thought, even for my favorite retriever of lost objects, St. Anthony. It’s probably wasting away somewhere in Hyattsville. The youngest of my brood, PJ, is still in mourning over the loss of the ’40s-style black wool overcoat that I picked up at a thrift store for him when he was a freshman at College Park back in the late ’80s. Maybe they’re looking for the “Voo.” C U in OC Today!

Tickets cost $20 and may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 443982-2716. “The work we do, to prevent suicide and to provide a caring place for those who have lost loved ones to suicide, is some of the most rewarding work I have ever done,” said Jesse Klump Memorial Fund President Kim Klump. “This concert, the uplifting music of the Tidewater Singers, and the amazing paintings, prints, and the collage we have received, can bring beauty to many lives, and beauty can be an antidote to depressive thoughts.” Among artists donating their work are Lynne Lockhart, Patrick Henry, Nancy Richardson West, Ed Challenger, Jim Adcock, Nancy Thompson, Deb Rolig and Barbara Dougherty. Each has shown work locally and in galleries across the state. Paintings are done on a template that incorporates the “Jesse’s Paddle” logo of the fund, in a musical motif. Some of the paintings are featured in a photo gallery online at www.jessespaddle.org.

Crispy fried oysters a Shore favorite FOOD FOR THOUGHT Continued from Page 1B

them gently so they remain juicy and plump. Be sure to allow the oysters to rest for a bit once they have been coated with the crumb mixture. This helps the coating adhere better and takes the chill off of the oysters so they do not cool down the temperature of the oil. Make sure the oysters are completely coated; if not, the hot oil will work its way into the flesh of the oyster, making them tough and chewy. When preparing the oysters, try to keep one hand for the wet ingredients and one hand for the dry ingredients. Otherwise, you will have a mess on your hands, literally. Work in batches and do not overcrowd the pan. An excess of oysters will also lower the temperature of the oil, which, in turn, causes the oysters to absorb too much oil. As a result, they become soggy. When the oysters are done, place them on a cookie rack to cool. While the oysters are hot, add salt and pepper. The hot coating will allow the seasoning to remain on the finished product. Do not overcook oysters. A crunchy exterior with a soft, juicy center is the epitome of perfection. Safety is always a concern when dealing with hot oil. Pay close attention and use slow movements. Do not move the oil until it has completely cooled.

Fried Oysters canola oil for frying 1 tablespoon bacon drippings 3/4 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon garlic powder couple of dashes of hot sauce 1 cup panko breadcrumbs 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup cornmeal 36 shucked oysters kosher salt, ground pepper to taste 1. Heat oil and bacon drippings in a deep sauté pan to 350 degrees. 2. Whisk buttermilk, garlic powder and hot sauce in a medium-size bowl. 3. Add the oysters to the buttermilk and marinate for 30 minutes. 4. Remove excess marinade and dredge in panko mixture. Tap off any excess breadcrumbs. Allow to sit for 3 minutes. 5. Fry oysters until golden brown and crisp, approximately 2 minutes. Carefully turn oysters over to cook other side. The second stage of frying will take less time, so keep a watchful eye on the oysters. 6. Place paper towels under cookie rack for easy cleaning. When the oysters are done, position on the rack to cool. 7. Serve immediately with favorite remoulade sauce. Secret Ingredient: Experience. “Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you” … Aldous Huxley.
