value – a 2.79 cent increase over last year’s rate and a 2.44 cent increase over the tax rate that would be necessary this year to generate the same income as last year, known as the constant yield level. However, the council engaged in a hot debate this time last year over whether to reduce the 2012-2013 budget year’s tax rate by a cent and instead take the money out of the city’s standing cash reserve. The move was eventually approved by the council’s then-

(April 26, 2013) In a continuing effort to cut expenses, the City Council last week voted to eliminate late night and early morning bus service during the resort’s off-season. Pending approval by the Maryland Transit Authority, city bus service will now be shut down from midnight to 6 a.m. during the Public Works Department’s “winter” schedule block, which runs from late October or early November to late March or early April. “It typically takes 160 days to get approval from the MTA on something like this,” Public Works Director Hal Adkins said. “They have to, by law, hold public hearings and reviews.” The city would, however, have the flexibility to reinstate late-night service for holiday weekends and events that may require it. Given that it is a majority financial partner in the city’s transportation system, the state could refuse or modify the service change. However, Adkins said that the MTA did not seem to have any serious objections when the topic was broached at its quarterly meeting with city Transportation Superintendent George Thornes.

CITYSTILLHAS$300KTOCUT To keep fund balance above 15 percent, city will bond out roof replacements OCEAN CITY BUDGET ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Hearkening back to last year’s budget controversies, the Town of Ocean City will likely be looking to compensate in the coming weeks for another $300,000 in budget deficit in order to meet what has become the City

Council’s apparent goal of raising the tax rate by only 1 cent, while maintaining its operating reserve at 15 percent of the year’s general expenses. According to city Budget Manager Jennie Knapp, the city will still need to cut a further $300,000 in expenses – or gain $300,000 in revenues – in order to avoid raising its tax rate more than 1 cent beyond the constant yield rate.

“So the $20 that we gave back last year, we’re basically saying, ‘You had it for a year, now we need it back.’” COUNCIL SECRETARY MARY KNIGHT The city’s preliminary budget, as prepared by Knapp and City Manager David Recor, featured a tax rate of 48.64 cents per $100 of assessed property

Police pension switch to cost $19,000 per year, if all goes well Council to cast final vote on ordinance in two weeks concerning OCPD ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) After a number of conflicting accounts last week as to whom – and to what extent – the city had disclosed its financial data regarding the recent police pension switch, a report submitted to this publication indicates that the city will be paying, on average, an extra $19,297 per year to support the plan change for the 22 officers in question. In two weeks, the City Council will be taking a final vote on an ordinance to move those 22 Ocean City Police Department officers – the entirety of the workforce hired in the last two years - from the defined-contribution retirement plan back into the defined-benefit pension system. The change comes as an agreement in the Fraternal Order of Police’s negotiated contract, which specifies that officers hired since the inception of the 401(a) retirement account system two years ago will have their monies rolled over into the group pension trust, which the 401(a) plan was originally designed

to phase out. Following a series of heated debates by the City Council from late 2010 through the spring of 2011, the pension fund was closed to new hires. While employees currently enrolled in the definedbenefit system will stay in the plan, all new hires after April of 2011 currently have a system of individualized 401(a) accounts. 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 employees continue to receive 60 percent of their salary once they have reached a threshold of 25 years of service. The 22 officers slated to return to the plan, however, will have the additional requirement of being 55 years of age, as well as having 25 years of service. The city’s 401(a) system – identical to a 401(k), but is for municipal employees under IRS code – involves employees contributing between 5 and 7 percent of their pay, matched by the city, to a personal account that becomes their own Individualized Retirement Account (IRA) at any time they may wish to leave

the city’s employ. The key difference between the two setups, besides the retention incentive, is that the city assumes any financial risk in the defined-benefit system. Under that plan, the city is required to annually contribute the amount of postretirement benefit liability an employee incurs in any given year, known as the “normal cost.” For public safety workers, this is roughly 1/25th of the total expected value of their pension benefit, although the value will increase as they advance in pay and in the vesting schedule. “The town’s liability increases after you hit year 15 [of employment], because then you’re fully vested,” said city Finance Administrator Martha Bennett. “You only own one-third of the benefit after year five, and two-thirds after year ten.” However, the city must also contribute money each year to make up for additional liability incurred by any inconsistencies in the fund’s performance. This may change abruptly, as the city has to assume the risk not only for investment losses – or gains, in good economic times – but also the possibility that the trust may be underfunded due to employees’ early departure or termination. If the 22 employees being added into the plan conform exactly to predictions as far as their work and lifespan, they will not affect this liability, according to the

most recent report by Cavanaugh MacDonald, the city’s financial advising firm. Although the 8 percent city contribution under the DB plan is designed, in theory, to cover the entirely of the annual normal cost, Cavanaugh MacDonald found that the city’s average normal contribution is 10.61 percent of its payroll. With the age 55 requirement for new plan members, as well as their benefit being based on an average of their last five years of salary, as opposed to three, this contribution is expected to be reduced to 7.5 percent. But it is still higher than the average contribution that the town was making for the 22 officers under the 401(a) system, at 5.7 percent, given that the DC plan had no liability other than the city’s match of employee contribution However, the city will likely not have to contribute anything this year, or for the next three years, as value of the officers’ 401(a) plans currently exceed the normal cost of the first five years, before vesting is reached. “What the city put in for the DC plan exceeded the liability or the DB plan, at least for the first three years,” Bennett said. Over time, however, the wage difference between the 5.7 and 7.5 percent normal costs for the defined contribution and defined benefit plan, respectively, will average out to $19,297 per year.

OC skate park cutbacks risk employees; opposition mounting OCEAN CITY BUDGET ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Budget sessions at City Hall have yielded even further service cuts to the town’s historic Ocean Bowl Skate Park, although efforts to cut expenses and reduce federal insurance liability now face both the risk of losing employees and incurring public wrath. “I’m willing to do whatever it takes to keep this place running, however the city wants it run,” said Skate Park Manager Dave Messick. “I understand the financial situation they’re in. But I also know there are people already trying to start up things to appeal [the service cuts].” Online petitions and Facebook campaigns have been launched by local skateboarders to contest the city’s decision to avoid insurance costs by slashing the park’s hours. The current proposal will have the park open only on weekends and holidays when school is in session, and closed entirely for January and February. One of those petitions, started by Worcester Prep senior Mike Durkin, had amassed nearly 200 signatures as of Wednesday. Durkin said winter closings would likely devastate the park’s local following, most of whom purchase annual passes to the facility.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Skaters enjoy a session Wednesday at the Ocean Bowl Skate Park on Fourth Street. City budget cuts could have the park closed through the week when school is in session.

“A lot of people surf in the summer and they join the skate park when you ask, ‘Well, what are you going to do in the winter?’ That’s our major selling point,” Durkin said. The decision to cut hours has less to do with raw expenditures and more to do with the city’s fear of its insurance responsibilities under federal mandate. 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 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. The Town of Ocean City already offers employer-subsidized health insurance to what it considers to be full-time yearround employees. But what the city sees as full-time is no longer what the federal government sees as full-time. To get around this, city department heads have been instructed to use “management initiatives” to keep uninsured employees’ hours under the 1,560-hour limit to avoid having to add them to its insurance pool. “It means we may lose some of the employees that we have,” Budget Manager Jennie Knapp said in a recent session at City Hall. The city has identified 40 employees who worked close to or more than the annual limit last year and are on track to do so again this year. Most, including Messick and several of his employees at the Ocean Bowl, are slated to have their hours drastically reduced. Hours at the skate park will not be compensated for, although other areas such as public works and convention center maintenance will make up the difference with additional part-time employees. Messick said he could not speculate whether he or any of his high-hour employees would be amenable to committing to a full-time schedule if the city were See INSURANCE on Page 25A

Excess of standing funds will be put toward roadwork deficit OCEAN CITY BUDGET Continued from Page 1A

majority faction, but its opponents objected that the roughly $850,000 depletion of the city’s standing reserve was not worth the average of $20 that the reduction would save taxpayers. “So the $20 that we gave back last year, we’re basically saying, ‘You had it for a year, now we need it back,’” said Council Secretary Mary Knight, who voted against the reduction last year. Even if the extra cent was left in for the 2013-14 budget year, the city is still $300,000 short of breaking even while also eliminating the deficit. This gap caused Recor to add the extra 2.44 cents to the rate to balance the budget and not remove further funds from the reserve. “When you look at the changes [the council] made during the initial budget reviews, which totaled around $700,000, and add in the additional parking revenues you approved … you’re pretty close to shaving off the 1.44 cents,” Recor said. Further to that point, Recor said last week that there “seemed to be a consensus that the council was more comfortable with a 15 percent fund balance level,” meaning that the city’s operating account would be projected to maintain about 15 percent of the town’s total operating budget of around $78 million per year. This ratio is significant, since the city

relies on a standing account balance to bridge the time gap between when expenses are incurred and when revenues are generated. Depending on the municipality and its tax base, towns and cities around the country generally maintain balances of at least 10 percent. However, as was stressed by council’s minority last year, a large cost-incurring event – such as a hurricane — could make the city temporarily broke if it did not have enough of a standing balance. The current balance, according to Knapp, is $247,066 over the 15 percent mark. But this does not include the upcoming $871,000 bill for unplanned capital improvements, consisting of roof replacements at the city’s transportation service center as well as at the District Court building at 65th Street, which the city owns but leases to the state. Mayor Rick Meehan suggested – and the council approved – that the city borrow money by issuing a bond for the roof work, essentially eliminating it from the general expense budget. The $247,066 in excess of 15 percent would be skimmed off the fund balance and put toward roadwork, which is chronically underfunded. At present, $1.17 million is dedicated to road work in the upcoming fiscal year, far short of the $2 million that Public Works Director Hal Adkins has estimated the city will need to do each year in order

to “catch up” with the $38 million roadwork deficit it identified in 2007. The additional money will “buy more time for additional discussion on the stormwater utility issue,” Adkins told the council, referring to the creation of a stormwater impact fee that could be used to pay for storm drain repairs beneath the road, which constitute a large chunk of the city’s backlog in capital work. City Engineer Terry McGean said there are 50 backlogged drainage projects, totaling 6 miles of storm drains. Most of this consists of corrugated metal pipe, put in place by the properties’ original developers and now beginning to collapse. The city has been retrofitting most areas with newer, plastic-based pipe that flows water better and doesn’t corrode. “Those streets do need stormwater work done to them, but that is not in the

budget right now,” McGean said. “We could be paving a street this year, and then five years later we’re digging them back up to put drains in [that could’ve been done earlier].” Under the proposed structure given to the council by McGean, the utility fee would be added to properties’ water bills to compensate for the volume of rain runoff, and subsequent burden on the city’s drainage system, that they produce. Single-family homes would be charged a flat $40, while condos and commercial buildings would be charged $40 per equivalent residential unit, specified at 2,250 square feet of space, with a maximum fee of 50 unit-equivalents. However, the council had concerns over how equitable the fee would be perceived to be by property owners and residents.

City to add paid parking,raise weekend rate at inlet lot to $3 OCEAN CITY BUDGET

Objections already in to second attempt at 146th ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 16, 2013) The conclusion of the city’s budget hearings last week saw the City Council commit to a number of revenue-boosting and cost-cutting measures, including further additions of paid parking and heightened inlet lot rates on weekends.

At least one of the parking additions, however, appears likely to be contested by nearby property owners. Though City Engineer Terry McGean warned that the inlet lot had seen a sharp decrease in total hours paid for after the 2010 parking rate raise, the council voted to increase the weekend fee at the inlet from the current $2.50 per hour to $3. “We’re not going to see any drop in parking there if we raise it to three dollars,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic, citing the council’s optimism that the prime location of the inlet lot would make it immune to further price hikes, despite

cheaper parking elsewhere in town. “It’s like a restaurant,” said Councilman Doug Cymek. “You can get the salisbury steak, but a certain number of people will always go for the filet mignon.” According to McGean’s data, paid parking hours dropped from around 1.1 million in 2009 to 900,000 in 2010. Even if weekend hours are separated out of the statistic, the decline in demand is still close to 20 percent, and has been decreasing more every year. But even with an additional 20 percent drop in use factored in, McGean estimated that the weekend increase to $3 would net the city close to $100,000

more in the coming year. The council also moved to add parking meters – in the form of Cale Systems electronic ticketing machines, which have become universal in the resort – to four previously free stretches of parking in the resort that have a mostly commercial or day-tripper clientele. McGean had identified a number of such areas, which he theorized would present less resistance than areas where residents or property owners rely on the spaces for personal use. “You have to take small steps, see how it works out, and give people time to See EMPLOYEE on Page 7A

“George informed them of what the council’s decision was and he did not seem to get a negative reaction,” Adkins said. “There’s no reason right now to think that we would get a ‘no’ out of the MTA on this.” The city’s original idea had been to simply eliminate the third bus shift of 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., during which the city has only one bus on the road during the winter schedule. But a shorter midnight to

6 a.m. closure would match the closure hours for the tri-county Shore Transit system. “If you shut it down at midnight and open back up at six, you will continue to interface with Shore Transit without any additional re-scheduling,” Adkins said. Including fuel, maintenance, and drivers’ wages, city buses cost $78.62 per hour to run, Adkins said. The average winter ridership for the entirety of the third shift is 48 people per night. The service cut, Adkins estimated, could save the city up to $60,000

“We could pay to put them all in cabs and it would still be cheaper,” noted Councilman Joe Mitrecic. Councilman Brent Ashley, however, said the service cut would only hurt lowincome, late-night service workers who rely on bus service to get to their jobs. “I don’t think we’re ‘hurting the little guy’ again,” retorted Mayor Rick Meehan. “Sometimes, you have to make adjustments.” Ashley voted against the service cut, as did Councilman Dennis Dare, who said the city should make larger cuts if it

was going to do so at all. Because the bulk of funding for the resort’s transportation system comes from state and federal grant monies, Adkins said the level of support to the city could be decreased to match its level of service. Given that the MTA is already somewhat below par in terms of both operational support and capital outlay, however, this impact is likely to be limited. “Even if you made substantial reductions, you would not jeopardize your operating grants,” Adkins said.

adapt,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. One of these areas is the west side of Philadelphia Avenue, below North Division Street, an area of the resort’s downtown that had previously been spared parking fees on the theory that downtown workers would be able to take advantage of the free parking. That effect, however, appears to have run its course. “Even today, when we’re not running the meters, you’ll see that everybody parked on the west side and nobody parks on the east side,” McGean said. “The point of the meters was to turn people over for the businesses,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. “Our concern should be more that the businesses need a stream of customers. They need employees, too, but their employees can get to work other ways,” such as taking the buses. The other three stretches of paid parking will be found on the ocean block of 146th and 49th streets, as well as on 131st Street between Coastal Highway and Sinepuxent Avenue. The latter two blocks are almost exclusively used for nearby bars and restaurants, McGean found.

“I know, on 131st, that the Crab Bag is expanding and is going to pick up 53 spaces, so I think that would be a good move,” Cymek said. Paid parking on Ocean City’s side of 146th Street had been proposed some years prior, given that the Delaware side of the street charges for parking, but had been met with resistance. “I think the opposition came from the condo to the south, not because they were using the street themselves, but that they were concerned [parking fees] would push people into illegally using their parking lot instead,” said city Public Works Director Hal Adkins. Earlier this week, Ron Deacon, president of the Ocean Place Condo Association, sent a letter to the city again renewing the building’s objection to the move. “I have never understood why a city government decides to implement a policy that significantly affects some of its taxpayers, yet does not feel the need to let them know ahead of time or give them an opportunity to express their view,” Deacon wrote. “I would hope that the desire for revenue would not encourage the city government to ignore the well being of a small group of its citizens.”

City more likely to drop service than add fees, given legal issues Town cannot make profit from enterprise service fees, per state statute ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) With the city government still scraping to boost revenues and cut expenses before fiscal year 2014 begins in July, a number of issues regarding the city’s expenses and services –and possible fixes for them – have run up against a legal wall. Namely, the city is prohibited from turning a profit on any of its various enterprises, lest it be considered an unauthorized tax by the Maryland General Assembly. “One thing you can count on in the state of Maryland is that the General Assembly jealously protects its taxing power,” said City Solicitor Guy Ayres. Under Article 11 of the Maryland State Constitution, municipalities are banned from enacting new taxes without the express authority of the state’s legislature. Further laws, passed by the General Assembly, have restricted any new forms of public income to make the state’s exclusive tax power even more bulletproof. This seems to have stymied the city’s

could conclude it’s a tax. You have a problem on any type of fees that a municipality charges if they’re going to be considered a tax, as opposed to a legitimate fee to offset costs.” If the city began to charge a service fee for garbage, and then had to lower its tax rate to compensate for the loss of service, “the question becomes what you’re really trying to accomplish,” Ayres said. In fact, he said, the legal precedent for a Maryland municipality being banned from turning a profit on exclusive services comes from the resort itself, nearly 30 years ago. “There was a case Ocean City was involved in back in the early ’80s, involving fees or building and zoning permits,” Ayres said. “In actuality, the town collected much more money in fees from those departments than were necessary to run the departments. The town got sued for a refund. It was a pretty well established case in Maryland, and it went up to the appellate court. Ultimately, it was declared an unlawful tax, and the city had to make a refund.” This precedent also calls into question the city’s financial stake in special events, which often pay handsomely for the city’s services and facilities and, in some cases, have had profit-sharing schemes with the city. “They may pay us a percentage, but it’s there to offset expenses,” Ayres said.

hope of being able to commercialize – and then itself bid for the rights to run – its own trash removal operation, a move that was touted earlier this year as a potential silver bullet to the resort’s budget deficit. The city’s solid waste operation costs between $5.6 and $5.7 million dollars of general revenue to support, equivalent to around 7 cents’ worth of the municipal property tax rate. However, if the city were to run its waste operation as a separate enterprise, it would essentially eliminate this expense. “The idea was that one would write an ironclad RFP [request for proposals] to be put out on the market,” said Public Works Director Hal Adkins, “in a manner in which Steve [Brown, Solid Waste superintendent] and I could go about bidding on this ourselves.” “A private firm may end up bidding $10 to $12 million, while we are currently operating at $5.7, so there would be some wiggle room there,” Adkins said. “But then, through conversations with our city solicitor, it was his stance that generating that level of revenue relative to the cost [of running the service] would be considered a garbage tax and that would not be legally permissible.” “It’s not that the city can’t operate in a proprietary sense,” Ayres clarified. “It’s just that, depending on what they do and what is done with the funds, the court

As long as the city is not gaining a cash profit, it is not taxing event promoters in the eyes to the state. The most legally palatable way for the city to reduce its garbage expense would be not to add fees, but to drop service. As Adkins said, most municipalities provide residential – but not commercial – trash service. He estimated that 78 percent of the service value that commercial properties receive from the city is contained in solid waste pickup. If local government were to eliminate commercial pickup, and credit 7 cents of tax back to commercial properties, the city would likely end up with a much more equitable garbage service – a concept similar to the tax differentials seen at the county level elsewhere in the state. “It’s similar to the theory that the state has in some counties that, if you live in a municipality, you get a tax break for what you don’t get,” Ayres said. But the risk of this, Adkins said, would be that the city would be relinquishing its regulation of the garbage schedule and putting the service at the mercy of private haulers. “Does it mean you’re going to lose ‘clean?’ No,” Adkins said. “But unless you did it in a restrictive and stringent manner, one could question whether the business owners … might suddenly realize they don’t want to pay for five-day-aweek collection.” THEATRE CLOSED MON 12/19 – TUES 12/20 FOR RENOVATIONS MOVIE INFO

Montego Bay code update fails with owners, more votes needed ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Ballot results announced by the Montego Bay Civic Association late last week have revealed that the resort’s largest residential community will not, as was previously expected, be relaxing its private building codes to fall in line with those of the city. “We didn’t get more than 50 percent of the people voting ‘yes,’” said MBCA Board Secretary Tony Kendrick. “However, it doesn’t look like people actively voted against it.” In fact, 83 percent of those who cast ballots approved the change. But the association’s bylaws stipulate that more than half of all members, even if they choose not to cast ballots, must vote in favor for the change to become policy. With 56 percent of homeowners returning ballots, the referendum fell 33 votes short of success. The referendum, sent to all 1,516 members of the community’s homeowners’ association, had posited an update to Montego Bay’s Declaration of Restrictions, which was last changed in 1992. One of the proposed updates included the removal of the associations’ 24-foot limit on the width of homes. This would, in effect, give builders an extra foot of space. By the city’s standard, a 25-foot-wide home is perfectly acceptable to be placed on a 40-foot-wide lot, which is the stan-

dard parcel size in Montego Bay. City zoning code only specifies an aggregate of 15 feet of side setback, with a minimum of 5 feet on one side. But because deeds to properties in the community are tied, as a condition of ownership, to the governance of the Montego Bay Civic Association – set up when renowned Ocean City developer Jim Caine first subdivided the land in the late 1960s – the development is able to enforce land use laws that can be, if so desired, more restrictive than those of the city. However, Kendrick maintains that the association has been routinely granting variances to this restriction. “Over the past 20 years, the board has been approving homes to be built according to the lines of the Town of Ocean City code,” Kendrick said. “That precedent has been set, and it probably ties

our hands for the future … we just wanted to eliminate the double standard and any confusion along with it.” As insignificant as one foot of building width may seem, it reflects an ongoing change in the nature of the Montego Bay community. When originally conceived by Caine, Montego Bay’s lots came with extensive restrictions that limited building on the property to nearly identical single-family structures – with the idea of creating a “small town” neighborhood in an area burgeoning at the time with high-rise condominiums. The 24-foot limit referred specifically to the width of the prebuilt Nanticoke modular homes that were installed throughout Montego Bay in the 1980s, de-facto limiting lot owners to this style of home as the maximum build-out. But

after the city relaxed its own zoning codes in the 1990s, allowing site-built structures on lots zoned for modulars, the MCBA began to grant leniencies with greater frequency. However, Kendrick asserted that most of the objection to the referendum did not come from those concerned about the changing nature of construction in the community, but rather over some other elements of the restriction change. “We went through eight months of meetings with owners, answering questions and phone calls, and providing a draft of the changes to everyone,” Kendrick said. “Towards the end, we kept asking if there were any other points that would make anyone vote ‘no,’ and no one seemed to have any.” Even after this, however, Kendrick See VARIANCES on Page 11A

Cheerleader deal close; city monitors concerns ZACK HOOPES â&#x2013;  Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) City officials reportedly made great strides this week in securing the business of Epic Brands, the cheerleading promoter whose competitions were feared to be leaving the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convention center. Even so, they admit that they are having to continually deal with the concern of other clients who worry that the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater project will cut down their space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to say the apprehension isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to work with them through the growing pains,â&#x20AC;? said Convention Center Director Larry Noccolino. On Monday, Noccolino and other staff from the Roland E. Powell Convention Center met with Epic Brands executives in a meeting that Noccolino described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;very productive.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already secured hotel reservations for 2014, for both the February and April events, and now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working out final details of where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to put their warm-ups, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be under construction while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here,â&#x20AC;? he said. The impending construction work in the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central hall â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;? will eliminate the space the cheerleaders typically used for warm-ups and staging, causing a panic when Epic Brands first caught wind of the plans last month.

The current plan, Noccolino said, is to set up a tent in the north-side parking lot as well as a smaller tent in the main parking lot. The city had offered to put up a large tent behind the Makai condominium, which is city owned property, but the group had felt it was too far away from the convention center itself, according to Noccolino. The focus of concern is the theater expansion that is scheduled to begin in the fall and which constitutes the second phase of the planned convention center renovation. Consisting of a two-level performing arts atrium with roughly 1,200 seats, the theater will be oriented northsouth, with the stage itself on the southern border of what is now the convention centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central hall â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balcony seating, vaulted ceiling and fly gallery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the space above the stage itself used for lifting props â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will use what is now the rear portion of the second-story convention hall, which was recently renovated to include the former second-story deck space. Noccolino said he expects Epic Brands to reach a three-year agreement with the city for use of the convention center and its cheerleading competitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While they were here, we talked about â&#x20AC;&#x2122;15 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;16. They would like a three-year contract, but we need to get â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 ironed out first,â&#x20AC;? he said. Epicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expression of concern last

month caused an airing of grievances by local promoters and hoteliers, who said they had suspected for months or even years that the theater project would have a negative effect on the ability of the center to book a wide base of events. Why they held back their doubts, they said, was fear of a backlash from the city, which they say appeared to desire to build the amenity regardless of functionality. While the issue with Epic Brands is well on its way to resolution, which includes a minor re-design of the theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage opening to be 10 feet wider, the situation with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event industry and its own clients is a work in progress. Noccolino and his staff recently completed a sales tour, in conjunction with representatives from local hotels, to visit current and potential clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This past time they went just to Annapolis, but the next trip will be to Philadelphia, the trip after that to Baltimore, and then to Washington, D.C.,â&#x20AC;? Noccolino said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re calling on new clients as well as old. We have very few holes to fill, but we want to fill each one.â&#x20AC;? Concern from event organizers and the lodging industry they patronize has been evident but not insurmountable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very transparent in our conversations, letting them know exactly whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen and when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been generally amenable to it,â&#x20AC;? Noccolino said.

Variances still anticipated for 25-foot homes Continued from Page 9A

said he received a number of inquiries from residents who seemed to misinterpret new policies regarding dogs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one that required dogs that had been declared legally vicious to wear a muzzle, and another specifying that owners could not leave dog waste on othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got calls from people concerned because they thought they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk their dog without a muzzle â&#x20AC;Ś or who said they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; like the update because it said you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk your dog outside your own property,â&#x20AC;? Kendrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we really talking about reasonable interpretations? It was sort of odd.â&#x20AC;?

Still, building in Montego Bay is unlikely to change substantively, as the MBCA Board will probably continue to approve width variances for those who are improving their lots beyond trailer or prefabricated homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The precedent will still be followed,â&#x20AC;? Kendrick said.

Worcester awarded casino funds for economic development cent of revenue from slot machines that is required to go into its Small, Minority and Women-owned Business Account Because the Anne Arundel corporation has an in-house revolving loan fund program with staff that has experience working with Minority Business Enterprise contractors, it will administer the loans. Worcester has set up a local loan review committee that includes Economic Development Director Bill Badger. Applications for the loans, which range from $25,000 and up, will be accepting starting May 1. The loans may be given out starting July 1.

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Worcester County could get more than $2 million to help spur economic development. The Maryland Board of Public Works allocated $3.36 million April 17 in response to a joint application Worcester filed with the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation seeking funds generated by casinos for grants targeting small and minority-owned businesses. Statewide, the state’s three casinos generated $7.86 million, or the 1.5 per-

Money will be available for companies with fewer than 500 employees and annual revenues that average $35 million or fewer dollars during a three-year period. The loans may be used for business acquisition, leasehold improvements, working capital, equipment purchase, vehicle purchase and refinancing of existing debt when part of a financing package. Interest rates range from 2 percent to 5.25 percent. Both fixed rate and variable interest rates are offered and terms range from one to 20 years. Together, Anne Arundel and Worcester counties applied for $4.1 million.

County finance officer replaces Mason at top post Finance Officers Association Tax Affinity Group. He will step into his new role in late June. “He’s a great pick,” county attorney Sonny Bloxom said. “He certainly has financial experience and he’s been with the county long enough to know everyone. I’m looking forward to working with him.” Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners, said Higgins “has the experience and knowledge that I believe will make him a great asset to the county. He has worked closely with

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Finance Officer Harold Higgins will be Worcester County’s chief administrative officer following the retirement of Gerry Mason, who has held that job since 1994. Higgins is a certified public accountant who has served as head of the Worcester County Treasurer’s Office since joining the county as finance officer in September 1996.

Gerry [Mason] for years and has been an integral part of everything we’ve done in the county. He has the knowledge and skills to do a good job. I’m excited about him taking the reins.” Higgins is ready to make the change. “I would like to thank the commissioners for this opportunity to serve as the next county chief administrative officer,” Higgins said. “I look forward to the challenge and am thankful for the management team that we currently have in place. Based on the pool of talent See HIGGINS on Page 13A

Badger was expecting Worcester’s share to be $500,000 yearly, but the county’s share was about $740,000 less than hoped for. Still, it could get more. “Because Worcester County’s application has been approved, yearly awards of approximately $430,000 will be available to the county for up to five consecutive years,” Badger said. “Such as award has the potential to bring Worcester County more than $2 million over the fiveyear time frame to support local businesses. We want to get the word out that there are many businesses in the county that will be eligible for these loan funds.” The Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation is one of three fund managers for the casino funds. The others are Meridian Management Group of Baltimore and Maryland Capital Enterprises of Salisbury. Half of the fund’s investment will be targeted to small, minority and womenowned businesses located within a 10mile radius of the state’s three existing casinos, Maryland Live in Anne Arundel County, Hollywood Park in Cecil County and the Casino at Ocean Downs in Worcester. The remaining half of the funds will be available to small businesses outside those target areas. That would make qualified businesses countywide in Worcester eligible for funds.

that is here, I am confident we will continue to make a difference. Citizens and government working together is the torch that Gerry passes on to me that I intend to carry and light our way as we continue to go forward.” With Higgins heading the Treasurer’s Office, Worcester County was awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association for its comprehensive annual

financial report for four consecutive years. The certificate is the highest form of recognition awarded to local governments for accounting and financial reporting. Before joining Worcester County, Higgins spent 15 years in the banking industry. He served as both an accounting investment manager and division controller for Equitable and Provident Banks. Higgins and Teresa, his wife of 34 years, have four adult children and six grandchildren.

The Green Room, on Route 50 in West Ocean City, will expand into the space now occupied by the county Liquor Mart and will begin selling spirits. It will also have a bar.

Green Room to add liquor to its West OC beer, wine sales NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) David and Sara Hambury, owners of The Green Room in West Ocean City, easily won approval last Thursday afternoon for their request to add liquor sales to their business, which now sells beer and wine. Not only will they be selling liquor, they will have a 25-seat bar. The county-owned Liquor Mart next door to The Green Room on Route 50 west of the White Marlin Mall is vacating the space to move to the Northern Worcester County Shore Spirits now under construction farther west on Route 50 about a quarter-mile east of Stephen Decatur High School. The Hamburys have owned The Green Room for 12 years and during that time, customers would buy beer or wine at that location and purchase liquor at the county store next door. “All the time,” Sara Hambury told the Worcester County Board of License Commissioners during their meeting in Snow Hill on April 21. “Every day, all day long.”

Liquor has been sold next door to The Green Room for 29 years. The Hamburys sought approval to sell liquor because of the closing of the county store. Their customers wanted it, they said. They also said their sales of beer and wine would decrease if customers could not purchase liquor in the same small business strip. Several people attended the meeting to support the Hamburys’ request, but their vocal support was unneeded. “There’s no one here objecting to this application,” said William E. Esham Jr., chairman of the Board of License Commissioners. County attorney Sonny Bloxom had expected to attend on behalf of the Worcester County Commissioners to voice objections to the Hamburys’ application, but the commissioners had decided two days earlier against that plan. “The county commissioners decided they did not want to oppose [the application], so the direction was to not appear,” Bloxom said Tuesday. Robert Cowger, director of the county See THE GREEN on Page 17A

BOARD OF LICENSE COMMISSIONERS BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) The Board of License Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Thursday, April 21, meeting in Snow Hill.

Fat Daddy’s The board approved the request of Fat Daddy’s owner Edward Braude to keep his beer and wine license on the shelf until he is ready to open the new business. The old Fat Daddy’s downtown was demolished and a new one is under construction. Braude said he had decided to lease the extra space, which has 965 square feet. He is expanding the existing licensed

premises by approximately 800 square feet. The new Fat Daddy’s will have 54 seats. The old eatery had 36 seats.

Burley Oak Brewery Owner Bryan Brushmiller obtained approval to expand the licensed premises of his Berlin brewery to the outside on April 20. If all went well during that event, administrative approval would be granted for an expanded licensed premises for events on June 29 and Sept. 28. A beer station with approximately 10 beers will be set up and he will have live music outside from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the special events. Continued on Page 16A

Marina Deck to add second floor deck NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Downtown restaurant Marina Deck is expanding so it can accommodate more patrons and be more family-friendly. After revising his plans, Marina Deck owner Dennis Kalchthaler obtained approval last week to add a second-floor open-air dining and bar area. “He’s not asking for any entertainment of any kind for the second floor,” Kalchthaler’s attorney, Mark Cropper, told the Board of License Commissioners in Snow Hill on April 19. During the board’s February meeting, Kalchthaler sought unsuccessfully to get approval to expand his licensed premise by adding a second-floor with an enclosed area plus an outside deck. He also wanted to have live entertainment of up to seven pieces inside and outside, a DJ, the privilege to sell beer and wine in sealed containers for carryout, a seafood carry-out, two gazebos and a children’s play area. Kalchthaler said he wanted to compete with the Lazy Lizard and Fish Tales, bars that have open areas and children’s play areas. It was all too much for some of the neighbors at the White Marlin condominium just 110 feet away from the restaurant. Jim Miller, president of the board of directors, said during that February meeting, that they could not handle “that kind of noise.” He did not think Kalchthaler would be able to control the noise to the satisfaction of the condominium owners. Although Kalchthaler said he could handle any problems that might arise, Board of License Commissioners Charles Nichols and Marc Scher voted to deny his request. Board Chairman William E. Esham Jr. recused himself because he owns two units in the White Marlin condominium. During last week’s meeting, Kalchthaler, who has leased the restaurant since 2001, spoke about his new plans. The first floor bar will be made smaller to make room for stairs to the secondfloor deck. He is adding a family entertainment area with seating and video games, making the bathrooms ADAcompliant and adding a bathroom for employees. Construction on the first floor is under way, but work on the second floor will not take place until after the busy summer season. “I will finish the first floor and prepare for the second floor,” Kalchthaler told the board. Miller did not attend last week’s meeting, but he had met with Cropper and given his approval for the changes. With the approval of Cropper and Kalchthaler, Esham did not recuse himself last week. He, Nichols and Scher voted to allow Kalchthaler to expand his licensed premises to include the new second floor.

The expanded Marina Deck on Dorchester Street will have an upstairs deck and bar, but no outside entertainment. OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

Abbey Burger Bistro The board approved the request of owner Harry Miller for a seven-day beer, wine and liquor license for Abbey Burger Bistro, a new business that will open at 12601 Coastal Highway in the former Olive Tree restaurant site. Miller described the bistro as an “upscale burger joint” with a menu that is styled differently from most other eateries. Patrons will be able to select from 10 or 12 different meats from a sushi-style checklist. They will also select their cheese and bun, he said. In addition to granting the alcohol beverage license, the board approved entertainment of up to three pieces outside on the deck from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. for up to three nights per week, and entertainment of up to three pieces inside from 11 a.m. to mid-

Café Mirage The board approved the request of Jason Ball for a seven-day beer and wine license for Café Mirage, a new business in the Montego Bay Shopping Center at 128th Street. The café will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. There will be no entertainment, no games, no video machines, no pool tables and no DJ.

Shooter’s Sports Pub The board approved a seven-day beer and wine license for Shooter’s Sports Pub, which will open in the former Steer Inn on Route 589 in Taylorville. The Steer Inn owners gave up their liquor license last May.

APRIL 26, 2013

Because of limited wastewater treatment capacity at the business, it is limited to 60 seats. The board granted the request of Joe Moore, attorney for the applicants, for entertainment of up to three pieces inside from 11 a.m. until midnight two nights per week. At first, the new owners had asked for entertainment of up to three pieces for just one night per month. There will be no outside entertainment except by special request. The business may have two pool tables, eight video games and one bar top game.

The Staubs were owners of the former restaurant, The Landing, at 123rd Street for nine years before closing it several years ago. They opened The Landing in Pennsylvania in 1995 and their son now runs that restaurant. The Landing may have entertainment of up to three pieces inside from noon until 2 a.m. and outside from noon until 9 p.m. Alcoholic beverages may be served outside at the pool and at a small sandy area.

Station 7 Owners of Station 7 on Old Bridge Road in West Ocean City were fined $1,000 because of violating peace and safety regulations. Specifically, police were contacted several times because of loud noise coming from the business and because of vehicles parked in fire lanes. According to a written report, licensee James Wampler was not very receptive to lowering the volume of the noise. During the meeting, Tom Coates, the board’s attorney, said two poles at the business “were used for activities. All that activity will cease.” The board said all entertainment must cease at 11 p.m. and that owners and management must listen to members of law enforcement and to be respectful of the neighbors. “Residents in the neighborhood were there before this bar and restaurant so if they have a complaint, we’re going to listen Continued on Page 17A

Hooked Restaurant The board granted a seven-day beer, wine and liquor license, plus a caterer’s license, for Hooked Restaurant, which will open in the former La Hacienda site at 8003 Coastal Highway. The business may have up to three pieces of entertainment five nights per week inside and outside. Inside entertainment may continue until 2 a.m., but outside entertainment must end by 10 p.m.

The Landing The board approved the transfer of a seven-day beer, wine and liquor license from Island Operations Inc. to The Landing at Sunset Island, LLC. Rick Vach operated a restaurant in the clubhouse at Sunset Island last year. This summer, John and Fay Staub will operate The Landing.

Department of Liquor Control did appear, but remained silent. “The county commissioners just decided they didn’t want to object,” Cowger said. “They said it was a license issue and the licensing board should make the decision.” Bud Church, president of the county commissioners, elaborated on their decision.

“There were a number of reasons we did that,” Church said. “ Those folks run a very good operation. A problem the county commissioners saw was that our store brought a lot of business to their business and our pulling out would have a detrimental effect on their business. And as a good neighbor, we felt it wasn’t in the best interests of them and us to oppose that application.”

JC’s Northside Pub The board ordered a letter of reprimand to be put in the file of JC’s Northside Pub because of a violation. Specifically, a police officer entered the business, located at 12708 Coastal Highway, at 3:19 a.m. Dec. 9, 2012, and saw the cook behind the bar pouring shots of liquor. After that incident, owner Jeff Edwards had all of his employees certified to sell and serve alcohol so they would be aware of regulations.

“I felt it was my responsibility to educate everybody who was going to be in the building,” Edwards said. “I don’t take the privilege of having a liquor license lightly.” Despite the violation, Pfc. Mike Levy of the Ocean City Police Department said the pub was not a problem location, the owner is usually onsite and he was surprised that shots were being poured after business hours. “This particular establishment is one of the better managed properties,” Levy said. Esham told Edwards that he was very fortunate that Levy was at the meeting. “This is a bad violation,” Esham said. “But we’ve had nothing but good things said about you.”

Ad may confuse some residents

COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Tuesday, April 16, meeting.

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) Once again, Worcester County must have a misleading ad published and, once again, the county commissioners are anticipating calls from perplexed citizens. State law requires the county to place an ad in newspapers about the property tax rate and it requires certain language to be used. Titled “Worcester County Notice Of A Proposed Real Property Tax Decrease,” the ad states that the Worcester County Commissioners propose to decrease real property taxes. Actually, the commissioners are not proposing to decrease the property tax rate, as some readers would believe. Instead, the real property assessable base is expected to decrease by 3.4 percent from $14.93 billion to $14.42 billion for the tax year that begins July 1, 2013. Commissioner Judy Boggs asked if they could reword the ad to state “Worcester County Notice Of A Proposed Real Property Tax Revenue Decrease,” but was told that would not be permitted by state law. Readers can, take note of the ad, but are advised not to pay attention to it.

Dispensary flooring The commissioners approved the request of Department of Liquor Control Executive Director Robert Cowger to purchase porcelain tile flooring from Lowes of Pocomoke for the new Northern Worcester County County Shore Spirits store and wholesale outlet now under construction on Route 50 east of Stephen Decatur High School. Cowger was allowed to waive the usual bidding process. For the 3,200 square feet of retail space, the installed price of $6.24 per square foot is less than other informally solicited pricing. The commissioners also approved Cowger’s request to lease two delivery trucks from Ryder at a cost of $15,300 for seasonal use.

Commendations

Public hearing

The commissioners presented a commendation to Worcester Preparatory student Casey Knerr in recognition of her service as the county’s page to the 2013 Maryland General Assembly. She had won the Colonial Dames essay contest and participated in the Washington Congressional Seminars Program. The commissioners also presented a commendation to Cpl. Samuel Grant in recognition of his 25 years of service to the county government. Grant worked as a correctional officer at the county jail.

The commissioners scheduled a public hearing to increase the permitted discharge from the Ocean Pines wastewater treatment plant from 2.5 million gallons per day to 2.6 million gallons per day. Wastewater plant infrastructure capital improvements are not needed to service this request.

Roads inventory The commissioners added Samuel Bowen Boulevard, located off Holly Grove Road to the west, and south of Route 50, to the county inventory. The boulevard, which is approximately .75 miles in length, is the service road leading to WalMart and Home Depot. They also deleted Billy Purnell Road, located off Route 611 near the Ocean City Municipal Airport, from the county’s inventory. That road is only .02 miles in length.

Propane gas bids The commissioners approved bid specifications for the procurement of propane gas to be provided to county facilities and generators. The current service contract ends May 31, 21013. The new award would execute a twoyear service contract that would be in effect from June 1, 2013 through May 31, 2015.

Veneer bids The commissioners approved bid specifications for the installation of waterproof veneer finishes for the Roads Division building in Berlin. Funds for the project had been approved.

APRIL 26, 2013

Happy birthday to us, we turn 20 this week Twenty years ago this week, the first edition of Ocean City Today came off the press and caused a stir in local publishing circles. The primary reason for that commotion, given the plethora of news publications already in existence, was the assessment that the parties involved had clearly and irrevocably lost their minds. After all, what room could there be for another newspaper in a community that already had more of them per capita than almost any other region? Obviously, this could not possibly work over time, or so the thinking went. But just as obviously, the critics and doubters were proven wrong early on, leading some to jump ship and seek employment here. This is not to say that the paper immediately soared to success or that it didn’t have to prove its worth to the reading public and the advertising community. It had to do both those things, while also overcoming a host of problems that all startup operations face. To say that Ocean City Today somehow simply managed to accomplish these things would be a slight to all those involved from 1993 to 2013. The fact is, the paper succeeded because of a great deal of hard work, grueling days and long nights and a willingness on the part of the staff to do whatever was and is necessary to make it all work. We extend our deepest gratitude to these people, who to this day will go without sleep, work when they’re ill, skip meals and miss the events and occasions that most normal people enjoy to get out the best paper possible. Equally important are the businesses that supported the paper at the outset or have joined its list of clients over the years. For that support, we thank you. Finally, we thank our readers. Suffice to say, if you weren’t reading, advertisers wouldn’t be advertising and we wouldn’t be writing. It has been and will continue to be a great partnership. Thanks again.

Gas prices differ in OC and Salisbury

Common Core Standards concerns

Editor, On April 11, I drove from Ocean City to Salisbury for a social event. When I left Ocean City, the price of gas was around $3.479. In about a half-hour, I arrived in Salisbury, where I found the gas price at many locations to the $3.369. Can anyone tell me why the price of gas is about 11 cents a gallon more in Ocean City than it is in Salisbury, two cities about 20 miles apart? I remember that the late Mayor Harry Kelley, when gas prices were very high at the time, threatened to have Ocean City start to sell gas to its many visitors if the price of gas in Ocean City was not reduced. Maybe this threat is not being done now by the current mayor and City Council because certain persons involved with gas locations in Ocean City have contacts in highest levels of the Ocean City government. Veronica Potter Ocean City

The following letter was read to the Worcester County Board of Education on April 16, and forwarded to Ocean City Today for publication: Superintendent and school board members, I wish to share my concerns about the Common Core Standards. Maryland State Department of Education adopted the standards virtually unseen, untested and with no cost analysis. There was no parental or legislative input and this adoption will change our education system in Maryland forever. One has to ask why the No. 1 rated school system in the country adopted the CC Standards when MSDE’s own gap analysis indicated that 88 percent of CC math and 89 percent of CC English match current Maryland standards. This 12 percent differential will cost Marylanders millions, if not billions, of dollars in the years to come.

For example, Worcester County will receive $1.1 million from a federal program called “Race to the Top” and the cost to implement this program is estimated to be $5.1 million. Common Core may not even be improving Maryland education standards and may possibly be “dumbing” them down. But we don’t know this because the standards have never been tested. As a matter of fact, the mandated assessment tests are not even completed. But it’s not about the standards. The standards are irrelevant. Even if the standards were perfect, this is still a bad idea. By adopting the CC Standards, the citizens and the state have given up a tremendous amount of autonomy to unelected bureaucrats and special interest groups. As you are aware, the CC standards are owned by two private trade organizations, who copyrighted them and issued a limitation of liability excusing them of any harm as a result of using the standards. In adopting the standards, the state obligated itself to Continued on Page 21

By Stewart Dobson Because I don’t dwell on every little change in my physical condition, which would explain why I don’t care that the part of my anatomy that holds my pants up seems to be disappearing while the next floor up is getting larger, I’m not well informed on all the wonder drugs that will make me feel young when clearly I am not. But I am learning, for instance, that among the scourges that the aging process could visit upon me is the heartbreak of “Low T.” Until recently, I had assumed that Low T would be the pedestrian version of high tea, a late afternoon event often involving ladies with blue hair, little biscuits and lifted pinkies. Now I learn that Low T, or low testosterone, is a male condition that involves the absence of lift, as it were, not to mention grumpiness, depression, grousing, and, apparently, the lack of desire to take ballroom dancing lessons. The fact is, I took ballroom dancing classes when I was in fifth grade, somewhat before I had much T at all, and didn’t care for it, suggesting that I’m not taking any medication that would make me want to do it now. It also occurs to me that the pharmaceutical industry has recognized that male Baby Boomers, who took a pledge years ago not to take maturity too seriously, will do anything to refute nature’s gentle suggestion that if you still want kids, you might consider leasing. Besides, I’m not convinced that certain dangers aren’t inherent in replacing something that nature has deemed problematic in certain aging doofuses, or doofi, as the case may be. After all, an 80-year-old has been graciously blessed with Low T to keep him out of (losing) fistfights over girls to whom he is invisible anyway. And then, there is this business of T gel, which is absorbed into the skin. For T-men with small children, whether generated the regular way or obtained through other means, it is conceivable that an errant dab of this substance could lead to a home populated by hairyknuckled tots with an overwhelming fondness for the Military Channel. Explain that at the next birthday party for your four-year-old. “Yes, Bobby does have some seriously long arms these days. In fact, he can pick up his toys without bending over, not that I don’t have to beat him arm wrestling to get him to do it.” I say if nature takes it away, there must be a reason. In the meantime, if you’re suffering from Low T, just be glad you’re not suffering from Low A, which makes it tough to keep your pants up.

adopt CC word for word. You can’t change any of it. You can add 15 percent, but that 15 percent won’t be tested. Former Maryland State Superintendent Nancy Grasmick recently stated, “The state and university face compliance with the new national Common Core standards, which is a national curriculum for the school systems. No longer are education initiatives developed state by state, but through a model

even heard of Common Core and since they’re paying for it, they need to be informed. I respectfully request that the school board hold scheduled public informational meetings so the people can get an idea of what CC is about, what changes will take place and an opportunity to ask questions. Common Core should not be a political issue. The issue should be what’s best for our children. Fran Gebhart Berlin

Pines man is first to file in new open state legislative district SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (April 26, 2013) Ocean Pines resident Mike Hindi is the first candidate to file for election for the House of Delegates in new Legislative District 38C, created last year in the redistricting process. After filing for office last Friday, he said this week his platform would focus on recycling efforts and “green jobs” creation in Ocean City, taking a hard stance on crime and repeat offenders, and continuing to promote education opportunities and advances in the area school systems. A Democrat, Hindi said he is against efforts to increase controls and oversight of gun ownership because he considered the legal restrictions already in force sufficient. He is 24, single, with no children,

and a 2006 graduate of Stephen Decatur High School. Having made his intentions known in private conversations with people at Worcester County’s 11th Annual Kennedy-King Dinner on April 13, Hindi said he received positive results and genuine offers to help his campaign. He said that he has contacted the Worcester County Democrats, but has not yet gone through a formal vetting. He is waiting to hear back from the Wicomico County Democratic Party chapter and is working to establish relations in the meantime. While he is a political novice, Hindi said that his business experience would be an asset that he will stress during his campaign. He has worked in the mining industry, on lithium contracts, in South America. He currently works as a lifeguard and certified pool operator in the

Aquatics Department of the Ocean Pines Association and is employed as a bouncer at the Green Turtle restaurant in Ocean City. Ocean Pines Aquatics Director Tom Perry, called Hindi “very disciplined” and “a good general all around gentleman to work with.” Perry also said Hindi paid attention to details. During the summer months, Hindi patrols at the outdoor Swim and Racquet Club, and rotates to the indoor Sports Core facility during the winter months. Further information of Hindi’s campaign is available by calling 410-2026286, or by e-mailing him at mikehindi fordelegate@gmail.com. Maryland adopted new congressional districts on Oct. 20, 2011 and new state legislative districts on Feb. 24, 2012 based on changes in population reported in the 2010 U.S. Census. As a result, Legislative District 38, which previously contained one singlemember district (38A) and one twomember district (38B), were reconfigured into three single-member districts of relatively equal size (38A with a population of 42,513 in Worcester and Somerset counties, 38B with a population of 42,567 in eastern Wicomico County, and 38C with a population of 41,581 in Wicomico and Worcester counties). According to Michael Swartz, secretary of the Wicomico County Republican

Central Committee: ■ District 37B, which along with Caroline, Dorchester and Talbot counties, covered northwest Wicomico County, was moved south and eastward to cover the portion of Wicomico County that previously comprised most of District 38A. ■ District 38A, which previously covered southern Wicomico and Somerset counties, now extends further, to the southern portion of Worcester County. It is currently represented by Delegate Charles Otto (R-38A). ■ District 38B, which used to cover all Worcester County and eastern Wicomico County, was reduced to essentially cover Delmar, Fruitland, and Salisbury. It is currently represented by Delegates Norman Conway (D-38B) and Michael McDermott (R-38B). ■ District 38C, the new district, covers the northern portion of Worcester County and the eastern portion of Wicomico County. District 38C is an open district and is not currently represented by an incumbent. The local political ramifications of the legislative district changes, which were controlled by the state’s Democratic majority, is that the reconfiguration of District 38A put Republicans Otto and McDermott in the same district, because the section of Worcester County where McDermott resides is now in 38A.

Sans arm, Lisi runs charter fishing and roofing businesses with ease SHEILA R. CHERRY ■ Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (April 26, 2013) Dale Lisi’s full time profession is running his Alexandria, Va. roofing company. His resort-based profession is chartering sport fishing trips and his pastime is helping boat builder Chris Haynes overhaul and prep Lisi’s charter boat “Foolish Pleasures” for the upcoming season. Not bad for a guy who seems oblivious to the idea that every day he shows he can succeed with one arm at more things than most people can with two. Capt. Dale has been chartering the sport fishing boat “Foolish Pleasures” out of the Ocean City Fishing Center, which he calls “the greatest marina in town,” for the past 10 years. Lisi, a big guy with an easy smile, said he has been fishing on the Eastern Shore since 1981 and described the area as a nice change from the city. Lisi owns Old Dominion Roofing, which also has contracts in Ocean Pines and Fenwick, Del. He says he has been roofing since age 12, having come from a family of roofers. Lisi said he has a five-man roofing crew who stay at his vacation house when working here. While he added that

he’d like to do fulltime roofing here, he said he has been lucky to always have business. “I run the business and sneak away to work on the boat in the summertime,” he said. He speaks in matter of fact terms about losing his arm during a boating accident in 1992. Without a hint of irony about an injury that for most would be life altering, he said, “I was out of work for three months.” Not to be outdone, Haynes, interjects with a joke that he would only have been out for two months. The two chuckle with one-upmanship banter, but Haynes never stops sanding. The schedule is tight: the first trip for the Foolish Pleasure’s summer season is June 1. The biggest thing is to ensure the preparation is right before the paint goes on, Haynes said. He sweats the finest details, transfixed on everything from smoothing the fiberglass just so, to faring out the ceiling. Haynes moved to the Eastern Shore from Annapolis over a year ago to continue a passion for boat building that, similar to Lisi, began to develop at age 5 while helping his father, who was a master boat builder.

Capt. Dale charters tuna, billfish Continued from Page 23A

Originally from Long Island, N.Y., Haynes said he comes from a family of boat builders. Haynes said that, on average, he has five major boat repairs per year. The rest of his clients are usually bringing in banged up Jet Skis, and he is concurrently working on a project at the Ocean City Fishing Center. He was previously based at the North Atlantic Ma-

rine Group, in Stevensville, Md. at the base of the Chesapeake Bay bridge. Lisi’s charters take him offshore some 50 times throughout the summer in pursuit of tuna, shark and billfish. Asked if he ever thought about being a motivational speaker, especially for people who have experienced lost limbs, Lisi simply shrugged and gave an “It’s no big deal” smile.

to offer guaranteed hours and benefits. “The question for us is ‘could I get somebody to work 15 hours on weekends only?’” said Susan Petito, assistant director of Recreation and Parks, in reference to staffing the limited hours. “I can’t say if it’ll be a problem and we won’t know until we find staff willing to work a short schedule.” The city will save roughly $20,000 to $25,000 in personnel costs with the skate park reduction. This number includes an estimated $6,000 in annual pass revenue lost because of the service cuts. “With the closure of the park for that period, we have to assume that some of the people who are annual pass holders

would no longer continue to be so,” said Recreation and Parks Director Tom Shuster. However, the city’s elected officials have doubted those figures. “My guess is that that’s a highly overstated number,” Councilman Joe Mitrecic said at a budget hearing last week. “My guess is that you wouldn’t lose that many,” agreed Council Secretary Mary Knight. A rough review of attendance numbers in the off-season taken by Messick and Petito shows the park averages roughly 30 visitors per day. “Obviously it’s always crazy in summer, but you can get a day where it’s 20 degrees outside and all the sudden it goes off and you have 25 people show up in the middle of January,” Messick said.

Md.names Parent Involvement Matters Award ’13semifinalists

COMMISSIONERS RECOGNIZE COUNTY PAGE The Worcester County Commissioners present a commendation to Casey Knerr, a senior at Worcester Preparatory School, on April 16, in recognition of her services as Worcester County’s Page to the 2013 Maryland General Assembly.

WOR CESTER COUNTY NO TICE OF A P R OP OSED R EAL P R OP ER TY TAX DECR EASE The Board of County Commissioners of Worcester County proposes to decrease real property taxes. 1. For the tax year beginning July 1, 2013, the estimated real property assessable base will decrease by 3.4% from $14,931,329,019 to $14,426,474,433. 2. If Worcester County maintains the current tax rate of $.77 per $100 of assessment, real property tax revenues will decrease by 3.4% resulting in a $3,887,380 reduction in real property tax revenues. 3. In order to fully offset the effect of decreasing assessments, the real property tax rate could be increased to $.7969, the constant yield tax rate. 4. The County is considering not increasing its real property tax rate enough to fully offset decreasing assessments. The County proposes to adopt a real property tax rate of $.77 per $100 of assessment. This tax rate is 3.4% lower than the constant yield tax rate and will result in a $3,880,722 reduction in real property tax revenues. A public hearing on the proposed real property tax rate decrease will be held at 7:00 P.M., on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at Stephen Decatur High School, Berlin, Maryland. The hearing is open to the public, and public testimony is encouraged. Persons with questions regarding this hearing may call (410) 632-1194 for further information.

(April 26, 2013) State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lillian M. Lowery has announced the 24 semifinalists for the 2013 Parent Involvement Matters Award. The Parent Involvement Matters Award Program is the nation’s first statewide initiative of its kind – recognizing parents and legal guardians for their exceptional support of public education. Parents are nominated for demonstrating significant, positive impact in their education communities. The 2013 Parent Involvement Matters Award will be presented during an evening celebration on Friday, May 17. Five finalists and a statewide winner, selected from the 24 semifinalists, will be announced during the award ceremony to be held at Eastern Technical High School in Baltimore County. “I am grateful and enthusiastic for what parents and guardians across Maryland are capable of accomplishing in our public schools. I take pleasure in honoring them because they play a fundamental role not only in the nurturing, but also in the edification of our future leaders,” said Dr. Lowery. “There is no denying that parent involvement is the single most important factor that pilots student achievement.” The PIMA Program recognizes par-

ents from local school systems across the state, nominated for their contributions in one or more of the five areas of parental involvement: Communication; Volunteering; Learning; Decision Making; and Community Collaboration. Many of the semifinalists from previous years have become parent involvement advocates on the statewide level – serving as members of task forces, presenters at statewide meetings, and participants in education conventions as well as focus groups. Among the list of 24 semifinalists is Jeanne Zender of Showell Elementary School. Child advocacy is Zender’s mantra. Understanding that parent involvement is more than just fundraising at Showell, Zender is also a positive role model and ensures that the school is a special place for students and parents alike. She brings her love of Fine Arts to the school by hosting the annual Showell Elementary Talent Show, giving students an opportunity to display their talents in various ways that are not found in the curriculum. In addition, Zender helped to bring to fruition the “Moms Helping Moms” program which provides meals and resources to three needy families at the school.

Statewide programs aim to curb prescription drug abuse NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 26, 2013) The rising incidence of prescription drug abuse in Maryland will result in increased government scrutiny of certain types of medications and where they go beginning this summer. Worcester County Deputy Health Officer Andrea Mathias said this week that the state program will include electronic reporting and monitoring of prescriptions and the dispensing of controlled

dangerous substances. In addition to monitoring these prescriptions, the program will allow physicians could see a patient’s prescription drug history. To formulate Worcester County’s prescription drug monitoring program, the Health Department staff has been talking to officials at hospitals, in law enforcement and in other related agencies. The program will include outreach to high-risk patients. The local draft of the plans is due April 30 and final local plans are due in June, Mathias said.

“We have some work ahead of us,” Mathias said. As the availability of prescription pills increases, so does the number of overdose deaths. Until the recent upsurge in the use of heroin, prescription drugs were replacing streets drugs as a matter of choice. The number of prescription drug overdoses has tripled since 1990. Nearly 15,000 people die every year of overdoses involving prescription drugs, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Another sobering statistic comes from

the Partnership for a Drug Free America, which states that every day approximately 2,500 teen-agers use prescription drugs for the first time. Most of the prescription drugs that are abused are obtained from family and friends and many come from the home medicine cabinet. Some people who abuse prescription drugs are at high risk of opioid death. Those people are the ones who go “doctor shopping,” Mathias said. They seek prescriptions for opiates from many doctors. See NEW on Page 30A

Drug take-back program kicks off Saturday throughout county (April 26, 2013) Worcester County residents are urged to participate in the countywide drug take-back effort, Operation Medicine Drop, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday. “Operation Medicine Drop: Safe Communities-Healthy Waterways” is a chance to dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired over-the-counter and prescription medications safely by dropping them off at the following designated sites: ■ Pocomoke Health Center, 400A Walnut St. ■ Snow Hill Health Department, 6040 Public Landing Road ■ Berlin Police Department, 10

Williams St. ■ Food Lion, Route 611 in West Ocean City ■ Food Lion, Manklin Creek Road in Ocean Pines ■ Ocean City and Ocean Pines police departments both have permanent dropoff boxes for safe disposal of medications all year long. Local law enforcement officers and volunteers will assist residents as they drop off their medicine at the designated drop off sites. There is no charge for this service and no questions will be asked. The program prevents potentially harmful medications from entering the

and our drinking water.” Operation Medicine Drop also prevents medications from accidentally falling into the hands of small children or pets and from being abused by teens or adults. This is an opportunity for people to prevent prescriptions and over-thecounter medications from being misused or abused, said Worcester County Health Department Deputy Health Officer Dr. Andrea Mathias.

In 2004, the USGS identified 100 different pharmaceuticals in surface water, including acetaminophen, caffeine, codeine, antibiotics and warfarin (a common blood thinner). They also found that an antibiotic, a drug used to treat bipolar disorder and nicotine had contaminated aquifers. “Operation Medicine Drop events are an important part of our community outreach,” said Assateague Coastkeeper Kathy Phillips. “By not flushing medications, or throwing them in the trash can, we are able to keep thousands of pounds of pharmaceuticals out of our waterways

Schools close June 7 (April 26, 2013) The last day of school for Worcester County Public School students will be Friday, June 7. Thursday and Friday, June 6 and 7, will be half days for all students. High school final exams will also be administered those days. Lunch times will be scheduled into the half-days. Each school will inform parents of dismissal times, and bus transportation will operate accordingly. Worcester County Public Schools add three inclement-weather days onto the end of its school calendar If these days are not used, they are subtracted from the calendar, resulting in an earlier last-day of school. If school closings exceed the three allotted days, the additional days are added onto the end of the calendar. During the 2012-2013 school year, schools were closed due to inclement weather for four days (which would have made June 12 the last day of school). Three of those days (Oct. 29, 30, and 31, 2012) resulted in school closings due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy and occurred while Maryland was in a state of emergency. On behalf of the Board of Education, Superintendent Dr. Jerry Wilson requested a three-day waiver from the state superintendent of schools and his request was approved. With the three-day waiver, three of the four school-closing days were subtracted from the end of the calendar, moving the last day of school from June 12 to June 7.

New Maryland legislation designed to prevent opiate overdoses Continued from Page 28A

Low income and rural residents are also more likely to die an opioid death. People on Medicaid are prescribed two times the number of prescription painkillers as those not on Medicaid. Their risk of an overdose from prescription painkillers is six times higher than people not on Medicaid. People with a mental illness or a history of substance abuse are also at higher risk of death from opioid overdoses. Many overdoses are non-intentional, Mathias said. Some involve people who think they are safe taking a prescription medication with another medication that they should not be taking together. The risk is higher if they get prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy. People should learn how to prevent an opiate overdose, said Doris Moxley, addictions director for the Worcester County Health Department. During its recently ended session, the Maryland General Assembly passed legislation, named the Overdose Response Program, to allow individuals with certificates to administer naloxone for an overdose. Naloxone has been used for years in emergency medicine to rapidly reverse opioid-related sedation and respiratory depression. The legislation goes into effect Oct. 1. Moxley said it was like a Good Samaritan law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It saves lives,â&#x20AC;? she said.

To qualify to obtain a certificate to legally administer naloxone to an overdose victim, people must be 18 years of age or older, have the ability to assist an overdose victim and successfully complete an educational training program offered by a private of public entity authorized by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. In Maryland, there has been just one naloxone program. Since 2004, the Baltimore City Health Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Staying Alive Drug Overdose Prevention and Response Program has trained more than 3,000 injection drug users, drug treatment patients and providers, prison inmates and corrections officers in the use of naloxone to prevent drug overdoses. The program is credited with reversing 220 overdoses. Online notes about the legislation state that during the past decade, â&#x20AC;&#x153;national increases in the number of fatal overdoses have been driven primarily by an epidemic of pharmaceutical opioid abuse. In Maryland, deaths related to pharmaceutical opioids increased during this time, while those involving illicit drugs declined. However, in 2012, Maryland experienced a shift from pharmaceutical opioids to heroin, mirroring a trend being reported in other states. Another program to curb the abuse of prescription drugs, and to help the environment, has been in use for a few years.

In this program, people take their outdated unneeded and unused medications to select law enforcement offices to be disposed of instead of putting them in their trash or flushing them down a toilet. April 27 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Among the places that accept unused medications are the Ocean City Police Department and the Ocean Pines Police Department. Medications may be dropped off at those law enforcement agencies at any time, day or

night, 365 days a year. For those people who are addicted to prescription drugs, or street drugs or alcohol, the county Health Department maintains offices of addictions treatment in West Ocean City, Snow Hill and Pocomoke. People seeking or considering treatment for addictions or mental health issues should call 410-632-1100. The health department accepts insurance plans and has a sliding fee scale for those with limited incomes.

Delaware escapee in custody after manhunt in Worcester Co. (April 26, 2013) A Delaware escapee is being held without bond in the Worcester County jail after eluding a manhunt in the Snow Hill area for several hours Monday. Jessey Dudley turned himself in to Snow Hill police that night at about 11 p.m. They arrested him on a warrant for escape before taking him to the jail, where he was held awaiting extradition back to Delaware. The paperwork was prepared in Delaware for that extradition, but District Court Judge Gerald Purnell on Tuesday held it off for 10 days and ordered Dudley to be held without bond on charges of escape and resisting arrest. Schools in southern Worcester County were on lockdown until about 1:30 p.m. Monday while police searched for Dudley, 24, who had been wanted since March 11 when he failed to return from an authorized work release leave from the Sussex Community Corrections Center in Georgetown. Such centers, which are not secured, house offenders who are transitioning back into the community. Offenders are permitted to leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs or attend approved treatment sessions. Dudley, of Wolford, Va., was completing a sentence for violating probation from a third-degree burglary conviction. On Monday at about 8:30 a.m., the Snow Hill Police Department was told by the Delaware Department of Corrections that Dudley might be in the Pleasant Manor area in Snow Hill. Snow Hill Police Chief Kirk Daugherty went in search of Dudley and saw him in the hallway. Although some media reported that Dudley assaulted Daugherty and the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation issued a press release Tuesday that stated Dudley would be charged for “resisting arrest and assault on the police officer that attempted to arrest him,” Daugherty denied those reports. “I wasn’t assaulted. I attempted to arrest him and he ran,” Daugherty said Wednesday. “Another officer tried to use a Taser, but was not successful.” A Worcester County Sheriff’s Office deputy was on his way to assist, but Dudley “ran across the street behind some homes and we tried to cordon off the immediate area,” Daugherty said. “He took off running,” said Lt. Ed Schreier of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. A manhunt ensued, Schreier said, because police did not know why Dudley was running. “The initial information we got said he was incarcerated and had in the past made terroristic threats,” Daugherty said, “but later we learned he was in work release and he was a Level Four risk, the lowest, and that he had walked off.” John Painter, chief of media relations

for the Delaware Department of Corrections, said Wednesday that state does not give out criminal history information, but “if it happened at all,” those (terrorist) threats would have been made before Dudley started his 10-month sentence for violation of probation. Law enforcement in Worcester County determined that Snow Hill and Pocomoke public schools, Cedar Chapel Special School, Worcester Technical High School and the Worcester County Board of Education office should be locked down as a precautionary measure. Police were at the schools for safety reasons. “We err on the side of caution,” Schreier said, “to protect the kids and the people in town and to eliminate his ability to escalate the situation.” At Snow Hill Elementary School, the day proceeded without disruption. “We’ve very proud of how well our staff and students responded,” Vice Principal David Gell said Wednesday. “All were calm and it was business as usual.” The young students were unaware of the manhunt and the lockdown was not considered out of the ordinary for them because lockdowns are practiced on a regular basis at the school. “They are as routine as fire drills,” Gell said. Gell also thanked law enforcement officers for their effort to keep the students safe. “Their professionalism and calmness made it possible for us to do our jobs well,” he said. While classes proceeded without incident, police were searching for Dudley, described as a white man, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. Because of the general description of the clothing and because so many men wear such clothing, police were notified about several possible sightings, but they turned out to be false. Several K-9s were used during the

search to track Dudley, while a Maryland State Police helicopter was also utilized and members of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, Natural Resources Police, the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team, the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation and the Pocomoke Police Department assisted the Snow Hill Police Department in the search, but Dudley was not found. Early Monday afternoon, police determined that the area around the school had been thoroughly searched with negative results and they decided the lockdown was no longer necessary. Law enforcement officers, however, remained at the schools while students were there. Dudley turned himself in to police several hours later.

Mallard tennis teamsshut out rival Warriors

Maintaining possession key toMallards’win

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) The Worcester Prep tennis teams won all of their matches on Monday against the Pocomoke Warriors. The girls’ competitions were played on Worcester’s courts at the Berlin school. “The wind factor was much less of an issue since we had played in similar conditions just last Friday. We adjusted quicker and used it to an advantage,” said Prep Prep Coach Cyndee Hudson Coach Cyndee Hudson. Lady Mallards who earned first through fifth singles victories, respectively, were sophomore Tatjana Kondraschow (8-1), junior Hannah Esham (8-0), sophomore Fiona Reid (8-3) senior captain Parker Kellam (8-3) and junior captain Lydia Pritchard (8-0). Sophomore Natalie Twilley and first doubles partner, freshman Erika Smith, shut out their opponents 8-0. Michelle Curtis, a sophomore, and freshman Hannah Arrington won their second doubles match 8-4. “A lot of the girls got experience at different positions for this match and they really stepped up. It was the first time at singles for Parker and Lydia and they adjusted quickly to singles play,” Hudson said. “It was the first match of the season for Michelle and Hannah. They have been improving in practice and got the chance to play an official match and did great.” The boys’ matches took place on Worcester’s home turf at the Ocean City Tennis Center on 61st Street, where chilly temperatures and steady winds reaching 30 miles per hour plagued the competitions.

Stephen Decatur senior Riley McCabe takes the ball to the Easton goal during last Friday’s game in Berlin. McCabe scored one goal in Decatur’s 13-11 win.

DECATUR EDGES OUT EASTON Seahawks struggle to win face-offs, but hold on for 13-11 victory LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) Draw control was a big factor in last Friday’s boys’ lacrosse game between Stephen Decatur and Easton in Berlin. “In the first quarter, we had control [of the ball] on their end. We took shot after shot, we just couldn’t find the cage,” said Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum. Goals by seniors Henry Hastings and Mick Taylor and sophomore Corey Gwin put the Seahawks on top 3-0. Senior Riley McCabe scored about two minutes into the second quarter to give Decatur a four-goal

cushion. Easton netted two shots in 30 seconds to cut the lead to two. Senior captain Andrew Ternahan made it 5-3, but the Warriors won the ensuing face-off and capitalized. Easton gained possession of the ball on the next face-off and scored with 3:20 left in the half. Decatur led 5-4 at the break. “We scored the first goal in the second quarter, then we proceeded to lose every face-off,” Lathroum said. Easton won 16 of 22 faceoffs. Easton evened the score at 5-all about two minutes into the third quarter. Goals were traded, and tied 8-8,

Ternahan’s shots in the final minutes found the back of the cage. Decatur held a 108 advantage with one quarter remaining. Gwin scored and Hastings boosted the Seahawks’ lead to four with 5:55 to play. Easton netted a shot 22 seconds after Hastings’ goal, but Ternahan answered about two minutes later. The Warriors cut the lead to three with 1:56 left on the clock and then to two 36 seconds later. Decatur held off its opponent to escape with a 13-11 win. “They had ball possession a lot more than us. We were four goals ahead in the See COACH on Page 36A

(April 26, 2013) Worcester Prep boys’ lacrosse Coach Kevin Gates received some words of wisdom from his junior varsity football coach years ago, and he’s relayed the mantra to his team. “If they don’t have the ball, they can’t score. If they can’t score, they can’t win,” he said. Senior captain Harrison Brennan, who won each of his 17 face-offs, was key in the Mallards’ 13-5 victory Monday over the Indian River Indians on their field in Berlin. “Even if we give up a goal, [Brennan] doesn’t let the other team get on a roll because he usually wins the next face-off. That’s huge,” Gates said. “When we have possession of the ball, we have the chance to score. And, it takes pressure off the defense.” Brennan won the first faceoff and scored one minute into the game. Worcester led 5-1 at the end of the first quarter and 8-3 at halftime. The Indians cut the Mallards’ advantage to three goals in the third, but the home team netted three shots to pull ahead 11-5 with one quarter remaining. The Prep team scored twice in the fourth quarter to win the game by eight. “We made it a lot harder than I thought it had to be,” Gates said. “We kind of let them hang around in the third quarter [when the Indians cut the lead to 8-5].” The Mallards committed six penalties. The Indians scored their second and third goals with a man-up advantage. Freshman Wyatt Richins was Worcester’s top producer with six goals and an assist. Brennan logged four goals and two assists. Senior captain Gordon Abercrombie and sophomores Sam Deeley and Jon Adkins each scored a goal. Freshman goalie Wade Walter stopped 11 Indian River shots.

Hastings chipped in with three and Ternahan logged three goals and two assists. SenDecatur Coach ior captain Brooks Scott Lathroum Gilbert stopped seven Easton shots. Despite struggling on face-offs, Lathroum said there were plenty of positives. “Our offense in the first quarter was very methodical and disciplined. We had good looks and lots of shots,” he said. “Our man-to-man defense was good and our man-down defense was very good.” The Wi-Hi Indians are scheduled to face Decatur at 4 p.m. today in Berlin.

Worcester set to face Decatur for second time today Continued from Page 35A

Senior captain Tommy Thornett (8-1), sophomore captain Quinn Lukas (8-0), junior Chase Schmehling (8-2) and sophomores Erik Zorn (8-6) and Chris Choy (8-6) topped their first through fifth singles opponents respectively. Sophomore Kyle Chandler and junior Lucas Baier scored an 8-1 victory at first doubles. And senior London Walker and freshman Jason Cook took their second doubles match 8-1. “The wind conditions seemed to be of most impact in the Nos. 4 and 5 singles where the Worcester netters held on for victory,” said Prep Coach Keith Coleman. “All of the other matches were decisive wins from the outset, as the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 singles and No. 1 doubles used consistent ball striking to overcome the conditions.” Worcester is slated to take on Stephen Decatur on the Seahawks’ courts at 4 p.m. today, Friday. Decatur squads narrowly edged out Worcester 4-3 on March 27. “We should match up very well with tennis skills. The question remains, will our players show up willing to scrap for a victory?” Coleman said. Added Hudson, “Since Stephen Decatur was our first match of the season, we want to do better the second time around. Many of the girls have made significant improvements in their tennis skills.”

Fiery Lady Seahawks score 43 combined runs in two games LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) The Lady Seahawks’ bats were productive this week, to say the least, as the Stephen Decatur softball team scored 25 runs on 22 hits against the Crisfield Crabbers on Monday, and the next day, recorded 18 runs on 20 hits in a match-up with the Washington Jaguars. The objective was to “try to get something out of these games,” said Decatur Coach Don Howard. “We’re trying to get the girls to focus

on what they need to do. To focus on the strike zone, on hitting balls solidly, on base running and on their defense,” he said. The Seahawks shut out the Crabbers 25-0 in five innings. After three days off, Decatur players were fresh, Howard said, and they came out swinging. The visitors scored 10 runs before recording their first out in the opening inning. The Seahawks tacked on two runs in the second and six in the fourth to lead 18-0. Decatur scored an additional seven runs in the fifth. “They came out with a little fire and

grit and hit the ball all over the park,” Howard said. Senior captain Jessica Iacona went 4for-5, with six RBIs and four runs scored. Senior Jessica Bunting had five hits. She logged four RBIs and scored three times. Junior pitcher Beth Laque faced 19 batters. She struck out six, allowed two hits and walked two. On Tuesday in Princess Anne, Decatur drove in 18 runs and held Washington scoreless. The Seahawks tallied seven runs in

the second, one in the third and three in the fourth to gain an 11-0 advantage. They scored seven times in the fifth. Iacona started on the mound and threw two innings. She struck out each of the six batters she faced. Bunting gave up a hit, walked one a struck out two in three innings. At bat, she had two hits, scored twice and tallied four RBIs. Laque (one RBI) and her sister Lauren (three RBIs), a freshman, each went 4-for-5. Decatur is scheduled to host the Parkside Rams at 4 p.m. Monday.

After losing first match with Crisfield, Decatur wins 2nd Seahawks are playing with more confidence, Coach Ferro says LISA CAPITELLI â&#x2013;  Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) When the Stephen Decatur and Crisfield baseball teams met in Berlin on March 27, the visiting Crabbers shut out the Seahawks 4-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of tough on them mentally to be shut down like that,â&#x20AC;? Decatur Coach Rich Ferro said after that game. Before the second match-up on Monday in Crisfield, Ferro said he was looking forward to the game so he could gauge the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; progress over the last month. The Seahawks, who Ferro said have been playing with more confidence lately, had something to prove. They won the contest 4-0, behind sophomore pitcher Grant Donahue. He struck out 12 Crabbers, walked three and threw a no-hitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He threw more strikes this time. He pitched very well and we played good defense behind him and we cut down on our strikeouts,â&#x20AC;? Ferro said. The Seahawks scored three runs in

the fourth inning and one in the seventh. Senior Noah McAleer had two hits and an RBI. Junior Justin Meekins hit a triple and freshman Zach Adams a double. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were focused. They knew it was a statement game,â&#x20AC;? Ferro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coaching staff was pretty happy. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get a few more hits, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the win.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesday, the Seahawks topped the Washington Jaguars 4-1 in Princess Anne. Decatur logged three of its seven hits in the first inning and gained a 2-0 lead. The visitors tallied two additional runs in the fourth. Junior Andrew Borradaile struck our four, allowed three hits and walked one in seven innings. Meekins had two hits and an RBI. McAleer, Donahue, juniors Chase Coursey and Jacob Hickman and sophomore Sean Colgan each had a hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a little sloppy defensively, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be defensively perfect all the time,â&#x20AC;? Ferro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get timely hitting when we had guys in scoring positions.â&#x20AC;? The Parkside Rams are slated to visit Berlin on Monday for a 4 p.m. game against Decatur.

Freshmen Christian Beres and Logan Romberger came out on top 8-1 at second doubles. “I thought we did pretty well,” said Decatur Coach Steve Berquist. “We fought through the bad weather and were able to win the match.”

Despite Cougars’ late run, Mallards come out on top

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Stephen Decatur senior Jon Hastings dominates his first singles match on Tuesday in Berlin. Hastings won 8-3 and Decatur was victorious 6-1 over Washington.

Decatur is slated to host Worcester Prep at 4 p.m. today, Friday. When the teams met March 27, the Seahawks edged out the Mallards 4-3. “It was a close match last time. We’re pretty evenly matched,” Berquist said of the boys’ teams. “We need the lower

seeds to step up and play well for us to win. I think it’s going to come down to doubles matches.” Added Greenwood about the girls’ competition, “I think it should be a good match. Hopefully, we’ll play as well as we did last time.”

Calverton moved ahead 2-1, but the lead was temporary, as senior Meredith Soulé and junior Kristin Shriver each scored, giving Worcester a 3-2 lead. But the Cougars netted a shot two minutes after Shriver’s goal to tie the score. Senior captain Alex Bruder put the Mallards on top 4-3 6:10 before halftime, and Calverton scored with 41 seconds remaining to make it 4-4. Junior Lilly DiNardo found her mark with 22.9 seconds on the clock. She won the ensuing draw and scored to boost Worcester’s advantage 6-4. “[During halftime] we talked about playing our game and not playing to their level,” Rogers said. Shriver capitalized less than three minutes into the second half and the Mallards rolled from that point. Worcester increased its lead 15-4, and despite a late charge by Calverton, the home team held on for the win. “We came to life in the first part of the second half. All the little things that count we started to do,” Rogers said. “Calverton was down by 10 goals and then the game got a little chaotic and they started to foul us more. Emotionally, we let them get in our heads and our defense just fell apart.” DiNardo had five goals and one assist to lead Worcester. Shriver netted five goals and Soulé had two goals and three assists. Sophomore goalie Carolyn Dorey made one save in the first quarter. Junior Maddie Pilchard stopped six Calverton shots in the second. The Mallards are scheduled to travel to into Delaware to play the Cape Henlopen Vikings on Tuesday.

Investment, vacation home sales on rise

Jameson new program coor.

LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer

Atlantic General Hospital recently named Darlene Jameson, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, to the role of coordinator of their Diabetes Outpatient Education Program. Jameson, who beD. Jameson came a diabetes educator in 2008, has been with the American Diabetes Associationrecognized program since that time. Jameson has provided education and counseling for nutrition and diabetes in the community for the past 17 years. She served as the director of Nutrition Services at AGH for 12 years before joining the Diabetes Outpatient Education Program. She frequently speaks at community events, writes articles for local publications and is involved with the Tri-County Diabetes Alliance. Jameson holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Rochester, N.Y., and a master’s degree in public health nutrition from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

(April 26, 2013) The National Association of Realtors recently released figures showing that investment and vacation home sales are on the rise. In fact, the combined market share of these two types of properties rose to the highest level since 2005. Vacation homes are recreational property purchased primarily for the buyer’s personal use, while investment homes are residential property purchased primarily to rent to others, or to hold for other financial or investment purposes. The figures reported are derived from NAR’s 2012 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey, which covers existing and new-home transactions in 2011. Investment home sales surged an amazing 64.5 percent to 1.23 million last year from 749,000 in 2010. Vacation homes sales rose 7.0 percent to 502,000 in 2011 from 469,000 in 2010. NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, said, “During the past year, investors have been swooping into the market to take advantage of bargain home prices. Rising rental income easily beat cash sitting in banks as an added inducement.” He further noted that 41 percent of investment buyers purchased more than one property. Also noteworthy in the report was that “all cash” purchases accounted for 49 percent of investment buyers and 42 percent of vacation homebuyers. Distressed homes are still playing a major part in the market with half of all investment home purchases and 39 percent of vacation home purchases being comprised of distressed properties. To this

(April 26, 2013) When Ira Mensh visits a fast food restaurant, he typically orders one thing. “As long as I’ve been eating out at fast food places, the only thing I really eat is cheesesteaks,” he said. Mensh owned a gourmet hot dog shop in the 94th Street mall from 1988-1991. He opened Jackson Chicken, featuring wood-burning rotisserie chicken, in 1995 in West Ocean City. When a unit recently became available on 118th Street, he decided to go into the food business again. He took over the space that had been home to Brianna’s Bananas Cafe, about four months ago. After some remodeling and installing a large grill, Mensh was scheduled to open Supremo Cheesesteaks on Thursday. “I like food. I saw an opportunity to fill a need in this town,” he said. The eatery specializes in cheesesteaks. The main ingredient is hand-cut premium Angus rib-eye steaks “because it’s the best,” Mensh said. More

point, Yun said, “Small-time investors are helping the market heal since REO (bank owned real estate) inventory is not lingering for an extended period.” Investment homebuyers in 2011 had a median age of 50, earned $86,100 and bought a home that was a median distance of 25 miles away from their primary residence. The median investment home price was $100,000 in 2011, up 6.4 percent from $94,000 in 2010. The typical vacation homebuyer was also 50 years old, had a median household income of $88,600 and

purchased a property that was approximately 300 miles from their primary residence. Where the median investment home price rose in 2011 over the previous year, the median vacation home price fell in 2011 to $121,300, down 19.1 percent from $150,000 in 2010. Lifestyle factors have consistently been the primary motivation for vacation home buyers, with 82 percent saying the primary reason for buying was to use the property themselves. — Lauren Bunting is a member of the Coastal Association of Realtors and a licensed REALTOR® with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Board Walkin’ for Pets Annual event benefits Worcester County Humane Society

G

o for a stroll on the Ocean City Boardwalk this Saturday morning, and take your four-legged friend along for the 14th annual Board Walkin’ for Pets event. Proceeds benefit the Worcester County Humane Society. “It’s a lot of fun. We hope everyone comes out and supports the humane society,” said Director Kenille Davies. Registration will take place in front of Harrison’s Harbor Watch restaurant at the southern end of the Boardwalk beginning at 9 a.m. Several contests, hosted by The Wave 97.1, will begin at 9:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the largest and smallest dogs, the canine that performs the top trick, the one who is best dressed and who is the sloppiest kisser. A special prize will also be presented to the dog that most resembles its human owner. Although the walk is for dogs, felines won’t be left out. Owners may submit a picture of their cat for the seventh annual Cutest Cat Photo Contest. The winner will receive a gift basket. Photos will not be returned. See PROCEEDS on Page 15B

Thousands expected for third annual Bikes to the Beach Four-day spring event features organized rides,entertainment,vendors and contests LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) An assortment of activities for motorcycle enthusiasts are on tap for this weekend at locations in and around Ocean City as part of the third annual Bikes to the Beach Spring Rally. During the past several

years, both Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City and Oasis Bar and Grill in Whaleyville have played a significant part in fall motorcycle events held throughout the area. To draw motorcycle enthusiasts and other visitors to the resort during a slow weekend in the spring, the two businesses joined forces in

2011 to create the inaugural Bikes to the Beach Rally. Similar to the larger bike week held every fall, Bikes to the Beach — the brainchild of Hooper’s General Manager Ryan Intrieri, Manager Patrick Brady and Oasis owner Bobby Riccio — was the first organized springtime motorcycle event to take place in the area. “We created the spring event with the sole purpose to bring business to the area, not just to benefit Hooper’s and

Oasis. We wanted to help out local businesses and hotels, as well,” Intrieri said. “We want everyone to benefit from this. Anything that can bring people to town can only help.” The 2011 spring rally, which included live entertainment, contests and vendors at both locations and organized countywide rides, drew thousands to each host location — Hooper’s and Oasis.

Four-day OC festival brings music, crafts, food to inlet LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) Ocean City’s 23rd annual four-day Springfest festival, which traditionally welcomes the start of the resort’s summer season, will kick off Thursday, May 2, with an opening ceremony at 10 a.m. on the outdoor stage at the inlet parking lot. The event will feature the Stephen Decatur High School Navy ROTC presenting colors, followed by the Berlin school’s show choir singing the National Anthem and a performance by Ocean City Elementary School’s OC Stars, which will include Director Rick Chapman’s original Springfest song. A ribbon cutting will then officially open the Springfest grounds. “I’ve put in an order for great weather,” joked Tom Shuster, director of the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. “We’re looking to have a great weekend in Ocean City.” Each year, thousands of visitors travel from across the country to Ocean City for the outdoor festival to listen to live music, shop for arts and crafts and sample a variety of food.

Subject of day: mouthwatering crème brulee French toast casserole FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Serve on warm plate; toast on cold plate is uninviting DEBORAH LEE WALKER â&#x2013;  Contributing Writer (April 26, 2013) Knowledge arises through the meaning of subjective ideas and continuous perseverance. The option of choices is the variable degree that sets chefs apart. The subject of truth is an intrinsic value that flavors food through personal interpretation. That being said, crème brulee French toast casserole is the subject of the day. The definition of this favorite breakfast is a dish of sliced bread soaked in a bath of milk and beaten eggs and lightly fried. A gastronomic genius would deconstruct the recipe and start with the basics. History conceptualizes the circumstances of the past; antiquity and the present simmer for better insight. According to an article that appeared in Chef Talk, French toast did not originate in France as its name suggests, but actually has been traced back to Ancient Roman times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apicius wrote: Another sweet dish break (slice) fine white bread, crust removed, into rather large pieces which soak in milk (and beaten eggs). Fry in oil, cover with honey and serveâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Apicius Cookery and Dining in Imperial

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Taste of the Artsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundraiser supports literacy in Wor Co. (April 26, 2013) The Worcester County Arts Council, in partnership with the Worcester County Library Foundation, invites the community to attend a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taste of the Artsâ&#x20AC;? fundraiser on Saturday at the Ocean Pines library to benefit the promotion and awareness of arts and literacy in Worcester County. The event, from noon to 5 p.m., will include art exhibits, live music entertainment and light refreshments. Guests may peruse work created by local artists and artisans that will also available for purchase, sample treats prepared by local chefs and participate in giveaways. Tickets cost $10 and are limited. Tickets may be purchased at the Worcester County Arts Council or any branch of the Worcester County Library. To see the list of participating artists, performers and restaurants, visit www.worcestercountyartscoucnil.org. The Worcester County Arts Council appreciates sponsorship of the Liljenquist@ Beckstead Outlet of Ocean City and the Ocean Pines Food Lion for their support of this event. For more information, contact Anna Mullis at 410-641-0809.

Rome, recipe (p.172).â&#x20AC;? An egg is a key component of French toast, so increasing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire of comprehension adds to the level of culinary excellence. An egg undergoes many changes as soon as it leaves the hen that can have deleterious consequences for a cook. The principle change is the pH balance. Carbon dioxide diffuses out of the egg, which increases the pH balance. This occurs between the two membranes at the shell surface. In actuality what does this mean? As the egg ages, air is physically being drawn out of the egg which induces a shrinkage of contents. If possible, use fresh eggs for scrumptious French toast.

Whisking is the next subject at hand. The purpose of whisking is not only to mix, but also to incorporate air into the eggs. Whipping eggs create a creamy texture; a blender is the preferred choice. There is no way a hand can compete with the power of a machine. Whipping egg mixtures in a blender is also the secret for fabulous omelets. Crack each egg individually into a small, separate bowl rather than adding directly to a batter, meatloaf, etc. It does not happen often, but one bad egg can spoil an entire combination. Culinary excellence utilizes every aspect of a dish. For this reason, serve casseroles on warm plates. Mouthwatering French toast nestled on a cold plate is not inviting. Remember, you want your guests coming back for more. Perfection is not always attainable,

but it is possible. Impressive height, delicate texture and wonderful taste are the trinity of crème brulee French toast casserole. Enjoy! Crème Brulee French Toast Casserole 1 stick unsalted butter 1 cup packed light brown sugar 2 tablespoons corn syrup 6 slices brioche bread, 1-inch thick (preferably a few days old) 5 large eggs 1 1/2 cups half-and-half 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1 1/2 teaspoons Grand Marnier 1/2 teaspoon orange zest 1 pinch cinnamon 1 pinch allspice 1 pinch cloves See HEIGHT on Page 14B

More than 600 carvers expected to attend OC competition As many as 1,500 carvings will be showcased during 43rd Ward WorldChamp. LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 26, 2013) Master woodcarvers from around the globe will showcase their work this weekend during the 43rd annual Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition and Art Festival at the Ocean City convention center. More than 600 of the world’s top carvers will display approximately 1,500 entries at the 40th Street venue. These carvings represent wildfowl species from around the world such as Baikal teal, ostriches, bald eagles, snowy owls and a variety of hummingbirds, among others. “It’s an opportunity for people to see species of birds from all over the world that they may never be able to travel to see,” said Eric Turner, director of special events for Salisbury’s Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, sponsor of the competition. Over the years, the event, considered the most prestigious carving competition in the world, has attracted novice to advanced carvers from Japan, Korea, Swe-

den, England, Spain, Germany, Russia, Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago and Canada. Turner said organizers are expecting approximately 4,500 to 5,000 visitors to attend the three-day show at the convention center, which is one of the only places in the world to see such a diverse collection of carvings inspired by nature. The expo also offers visitors an opportunity to meet the carvers. In addition to the world and master levels, there are three general levels of competition: advanced, intermediate and novice. These levels have several subdivisions for different species of birds and carving styles. There is also a youth competition. More than $70,000 in prize money, as well as championship rings, rosettes, medallions and ribbons, will be presented to top carvers in each of the approximately 40 divisions, beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday. World division entries presented with a first-place award will be exhibited at the Salisbury museum for one year immediately following the competition. A Peoples’ Choice Award will be handed out on Sunday. Skyhunters in Flight, a live raptor demonstration of the ancient art of falconry with master falconer Brian Bradley, will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Attendees will have the

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ve set a fast pace for yourself. But as you approach your goal, you might want to slow down a bit in order to take time to reassess your situation and make changes while you can. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Patience continues to be a virtue for the Divine Bovine. So as eager as you might be to get things moving, remember that time is on your side. Make good use of it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) There’s a wee bit of uncertainty in the early part of the week. But things clear up as more facts come to light. Spend quality time this weekend with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An old friend’s return could open new possibilities for both of you. But don’t let yourself be rushed into anything. There could be some factors you haven’t yet explored. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This week offers a challenge you’re raring to take on. And while eager to get started, do so slowly so that you can focus those sharp Cat’s Eyes on every detail. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Put your skepticism aside and listen to advice from colleagues who’ve been where you are now. What they say could be helpful as you get closer to a decision. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family matter might again require your reassuring touch. Handle it, as always, with kindness and fairness, even if some of your kin prove to be especially difficult. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your ability to tackle even the most intricate details of a project is likely to impress some very important people. A relative shares news later this week. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The Archer’s aim might be focused on the big picture this week, but don’t overlook checking for those details you might have missed. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might feel awkward asking for assistance, but who would refuse the charming Goat’s request? Do it, then go ahead and enjoy a musical weekend. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Pour some cold water on that simmering misunderstanding before it boils over. The sooner things settle, the sooner you can move ahead with your plans. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You’re in a highly productive period, which you feel can go on forever. But you could be courting exhaustion. Take time out to relax and restore your energies. BORN THIS WEEK: You can combine a sense of adventure with a penchant for practicality. Have you considered a travel-related field?

The 22nd installment in 2012 was well attended, with the four-day event drawing 106,321 visitors to the inlet parking lot. The attendance was higher than the five-year average of 103,283. Aside from a food tent, which features more than two dozen vendors serving everything from Eastern Shore favorites and burgers to deep-fried Twinkies, jumbo turkey legs and alligator, Springfest is also home to two big-top tents that house more than 180 artists and crafters, as well as exhibitors offering commercial and gourmet goods in the midway area. Also featured in the midway area will be the Springfest Boutique, with imprinted apparel and merchandise. “There’s a little something for everybody,” Shuster said. A variety of children’s activities, including sand art, temporary tattoos and rock climbing wall, in addition to an inflatable slide, bounce house and obstacle course throughout the weekend. On the entertainment side, acts specializing in everything from big band and country to rock and roll will perform. All of the entertainment is free, except for headlining acts. “Every year we bring in some new entertainment to introduce new music to Springfest, but we’ll also have some of our old favorites back,” Shuster said.

Kicking off headline entertainment will be Beatlemania Again, who will perform Thursday at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show range from $5 to $10.

Kicking off the headline entertainment will be Beatlemania Again. The group will take the stage on Thursday at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show range from $5 to $10.

of the musicians scheduled to jam include Kevin Poole, Lauren Glick, Joe Smooth, Joe Mama, Jeff Davis, John Remy and Mike Armstrong. Country star Justin Moore will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 3.

KOMEN MD OCEAN CITY RACE FOR THE CURE The second annual Susan G. Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure took place April 21, and included a “Parade of Pink” survivor recognition, 5k timed competitive run, a 5k recreational run and walk and 1-mile fun walk. About $270,000 has been raised for the organization as of Tuesday. Participants have until May 21 to turn in final donations. “We were thrilled with the turnout for this year’s race. The overall energy in the Race Village was overwhelmingly positive and it was wonderful to see everyone come together to celebrate the survivors and remember loved ones,” said Brittany Fowler, communications and marketing manager for Komen Maryland. “We had more than 3,400 race participants, but estimate that we had about 5,000 people total in the Race Village. We are looking forward to next year.” Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised during the second annual 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.

Proceeds from walk will go toward food, other necessities Continued from Page 1B

Following the contests, owners and their dogs will be free to walk as far as they want on the Boardwalk. Refreshment stops with drinks and snacks will be set up for dogs and owners near 12th and 27th streets. The walk will take place rain or shine. For a $25 donation, walkers will receive a bandanna for their pooch. Participants who raise $50 will get a dog walk T-shirt and a bandanna, and walkers donating $100 or more will take home a sun visor, T-shirt and a bandanna. The person who collects the most donations will win the grand prize gift basket filled with goodies donated by local businesses. Additional prizes will also be given away to some of the highest pledge earners. The youngest walker who collects the most pledges will also take home a gift basket. Approximately 200 people registered to walk a dog during the 2012 Board Walkin’ for Pets fundraiser, helping to raise about $26,000 for the shelter, Davies said. Board Walkin’ for Pets is the shelter’s largest fundraiser annually. Funds generated during the walk go toward the general costs of running the no-kill nonprofit shelter, located at 12330 Eagles Nest Road, off Route 611 in West Ocean City. Those expenses include food bills, cat litter, veterinary care such as spaying or neutering, vaccines, heartworm and flea preventive, medicines, shots, cleaning supplies and maintenance. Approximately $80,000 is spent annually on veterinary costs and about $700 weekly on pet food, Davies. Donations such as dog and cat food, treats, toys, crates, blankets, small bedding and cleaning supplies will also be collected for shelter use during the event. Davies said about a dozen shelter dogs will be walked by volunteers this year. Those who would like to walk a shelter dog should call the facility at 410-213-0146. All shelter dogs will wear “adopt me” bandannas during the event. At this time, there are approximately 45 dogs and 125 cats that call the shelter home. Pups who have been adopted from the humane society can sport “former shelter dog” tags while they walk. “We have a lot of former shelter dogs walking each year,” Davies said. “It’s nice for us to see them.” For more information, call the shelter at 410-213-0146 or visit www. worcestercountyhumanesociety.com or search “Worcester County Humane Society” on Facebook.

Approximately 200 people registered to walk a dog during the Worcester County Humane Society’s 13th annual Board Walkin’ for Pets event on the Boardwalk last year. About $26,000 was collected during the fundraiser for the West Ocean City facility. Funds generated go toward the general costs of running the no-kill nonprofit shelter. Those expenses include food bills, cat litter, veterinary care such as spaying or neutering, vaccines, heartworm and flea preventive, medicines, shots, cleaning supplies and maintenance.

SDHS LIFESAVERS DONATE TO INTERNATIONAL MEASLES INITIATIVE Stephen Decatur High School Lifesavers donated $300 to the American Red Cross International Measles Initiative, a program created to help eradicate measles around the world. Thousands of children die each year from the measles, simply because they are not vaccinated. Each dollar raised by the Jr. Red Cross Club pays for a child’s vaccination and can potentially save the life of that child. The Decatur Lifesaver’s next project is “Spin Like A Hurricane,” during which participants will ride stationary bicycles to raise money for the local American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Pictured, in front row from left, are Zach Kaiser, Mark Rohrer, Dalton Warren and Jake Lathroum; in second row, Jason Pylypczuk, Heather Rodriguez, Katti Carpenter, Lower Shore ARC Director John Culp, Patti Miller, Claire Edmunds, Somer Feeheley, Mallory Rolleston, Evan Heim and Paige Bradford; and n back row, Emily Cashman, Fiona Obrien, Ciara Wright, Cora Cox and Principal Tom Zimmer.
