RAIN DOESN’T DAMPEN RACE RESULTS Thousands turn out for inaugural race, despite stormy conditions, protestors
ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Despite the rain, Sunday’s inaugural Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure® raised a considerable sum of money for cancer research and has its organizers already looking toward next year’s event. “I was pleasantly sur-
prised with the turnout despite the rain … we thought it was pretty packed for the weather,” said Brittany Fowler, communications and development coordinator for Komen Maryland. “Cancer doesn’t stop for inclement weather and I think people want to show their own resilience.” Nearly 3,500 people registered for the event,
which included a 5k timed competitive run, a 5k recreational run (not timed), a 5k walk and 1-mile fun walk. The festivities kicked off with the “Parade of Pink” survivor recognition walk around the Race Village, followed by a group photograph. As of Thursday morning, approximately $266,000 in donations had been turned
in, according to the Web site, www.komenmd.org. Runners and walkers participating in the Team Challenge have until the end of May to turn in final pledges. Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised will go to local programs that offer a range of breast health services, from screening and See RAIN on Page 7
(April 27, 2012) A councilman’s phone call to a city manager candidate during the selection process has made the sharp split in the City Council even more pronounced, with the apparent political factions admitting that the manager candidates have become casualties of a conflict that may see two council members refuse to participate if a vote to hire a new city manager comes up next week. In addition, Councilman Joe Hall, who made that call, revealed that it was linked to his reasons for voting to dismiss City Manager Dennis Dare last fall. Hall confirmed that he made a phone call, against the advice of city Human Resources Manager Wayne Evans, to one of the two final candidates for city manager. The call was made shortly before the applicant was to come in for a final interview with the council. “I felt compelled to have a question answered and I had a phone call of approximately 13 minutes with the candidate in question, on a city cell phone,” Hall said. Hall said the council had set “ground rules” for the selection process that included a recommendation that no council member contact any of the candidates privately. However, Hall said it was his understanding that these rules were not set in stone. Three council members — Doug Cymek, Mary Knight, and Council Secretary Lloyd Martin — have now said they are opposed to continuing a process that they see as having been tainted. “I guess the right word is inappropriate … when we set out the ground rules at the beginning of the process, it was agreed that we were not to have direct contact with the candidates,” Cymek said. “Thirteen minutes can put someone at an advantage, someone who was going to appear before council in 36 hours.” See JOE on Page 12

Board announces four candidates for superintendent of schools Stakeholders will have opportunity to meet with finalists in coming weeks (April 27, 2012) Worcester County Public Schools’ superintendent search, facilitated by the Maryland Association of Boards of Education, is entering into its final stages. With four candidates advancing as finalists, the Worcester County Board of Education announced April 25, that the search process will move into daylong stakeholder interview sessions. “Invited volunteers representing a variety of stakeholder groups will have the opportunity — during pre-scheduled days — to ask questions to each of the finalists, as well as to provide the board of education with feedback on their experiences with the candidates,” said board President Robert A. Rothermel Jr. “We value stakeholder participation. Our school system is comprised of community schools, and it makes sense to seek community input.” Stakeholder groups include elected officials, Central Office staff, principals, students, support staff, business leaders, teachers, and parents/community leaders. The four finalists are John B. Gaddis, Michael Sander, Louis H. Taylor and Gerald “Jerry” Wilson.

Wounded veterans honored during reception in Ocean City ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) “It’s weird. I mean, coming back to an environment where everybody has two legs, it’s just strange at first.” U.S. Army Specialist Joe Yantz lost a leg in Kandahar, Afghanistan in June 2010. But on Saturday night, nearly two years later, he completed an unlikely journey that had taken him from his hometown of Sedalia, Mo., to Afghanistan, then to Walter Reed Naval Hospital in Bethesda, and finally to Ocean City. Yantz was one of 10 young veterans in attendance at Saturday’s banquet at the American Legion’s Synepuxent Post 166 on 24th Street. The dinner was intended not only to honor the soldiers themselves, but also to acknowledge Helping Hometown Heroes, the program that brought them to Ocean City and will continue to help wounded veterans re-acclimate to life outside the hospital. “We’re taking them sailing, fishing, golfing – anything we can do to get these guys out of the hospital for a while,” said Helping Hometown Heroes founder Rosita Underwood. Underwood, of Woodbine, Md., started the organization in 2009 after spending nearly three years caring for her son’s best friend, who had been wounded in Iraq and underwent rehabilitation at Walter Reed. Underwood was soon joined by her friend Nicole Enos, who quickly became a

devotee to the program’s goal of social rehabilitation for wounded veterans who have often spent years inside Walter Reed after sustaining traumatic injuries. “[Walter Reed] is like a hotel,” said Enos, “it’s very insulated. When they’re in the hospital bubble, it becomes their comfort zone.” To this end, Underwood and Enos have organized a multitude of activities to help veterans out of the shells they may have built up since being wounded:
monthly dinners at restaurants in Silver Springs, casino junkets to Atlantic City, visits to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and, most of all, fishing excursions to Ocean City. “People in Ocean City are just so welcoming. It’s really refreshing,” Yantz said. “The different organizations have been really supportive. Most of all, it’s about meeting people,” said Sgt. Preston Kaplan, who is soon to be released from a four-year stay at Walter Reed after being
wounded in Iraq. Enos said she emphasizes spontaneity during the trips – the worst thing, she said, would be to let the veterans become complacent in what they expect that they can and cannot do. She almost always accepts on-the-spot invitations for the soldiers to participate in local events, noting that a last-minute invitation to have the veterans participate in the trout fishing tournament at the most recent Ocean City Boat Show netted them both first and second place. During the current trip, Staff Sgt. Keil Vickers won second place at a golf tournament at Eagle’s Landing. “I’ve dragged them to fancy dinners, classical concerts – they’re always good sports about it,” Enos said. Helping Hometown Heroes has been welcomed by the military, particularly by the Army liaisons whose job it is to assist and coordinate between wounded soldiers at Walter Reed and their respective home units. “[Underwood and Enos] subsidize what the Army can’t provide. They understand there is a lot more to healing than what they [the Army] can give you inside the hospital,” said Sgt. Rudy Nunez, who works between Walter Reed and the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C. “It’s part of rehab, getting [the soldiers] back out into the public,” echoed Staff Sgt. Landon Becker from the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas. Most of the funding for Helping

Ocean City Today
Helping Hometown Heroes program brings veterans to resort Hometown Heroes comes from its sister organization, Boats for Heroes, which accepts donations of boats, cars, and other vehicles to be resold and the proceeds given to Helping Hometown Heroes. Boats for Heroes is a collaboration between Underwood and resort resident Dave Gregory, whose resort property is an impromptu sales headquarters for the organization. Underwood estimated that their campaign at last year’s Ocean City Boat Show netted nearly 20 donated vessels. “We get a lot of donations from older folks who can’t get out on the water anymore,” said Gregory, “widows who don’t want their husbands’ boats but don’t have the means to get them out of their driveways.” Underwood and Enos have spent considerable time perfecting their approach to the veterans, something which Enos said requires getting used to pushing the
soldiers’ boundaries despite their disabilities. “We pamper them, but at the same time we don’t,” she said. “We do things as if they were able-bodied.” As an example, Enos said she had taken the veterans on a long walk down the Boardwalk earlier on Saturday. “I always told them, ‘if you want to stop, we can,’” she said, “but at the same time, I would say ‘let’s just go a couple more blocks,’ and they would always be fine with it.” “As you get further and further away from the hospital, you realize that you’re the weirdo. That’s the hardest part,” Yantz said. However, Enos said she has seen a dramatic transformation in all of the veterans who have participated in Helping Hometown Heroes’ functions. Most, she said, are predictably reserved their first few times outside. But with exposure and reassurance that they will
indeed be able to function outside of the hospital environment, personalities begin to bloom. Vickers – who was on his first trip with Helping Hometown Heroes – was a prime example. “It is what it is,” he said, when asked how he was finding life outside Walter Reed. “If you could see him in six months, I know he’d talk more,” said Enos, “once they start to embrace these things, they really open up.” “It’s very therapeutic to see that you can still do stuff, that you’re not going to just be a cripple in a wheelchair,” Yantz said. This acceptance often breeds a morbid sense of humor – something which Enos takes pride in, despite the fact that it may seem crass to those uninitiated to the veterans’ experience. Her frequent calls to Yantz to “Hurry up, slowpoke” are often met with mortified stares, she said.
“I had one guy who, right before he was to be released, bought a new car,” said Enos. “Someone asked why he was so excited, and he said, ‘I just bought a new car – and it only cost me a leg.’ They were just stunned. So then he says, ‘But it’s the gas that’ll cost me the arm.’” Saturday’s dinner also featured comments by Maryland State Senator Jim Mathias and Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan, who read a proclamation making April 21 “Wounded Heroes Day.” He also presented Underwood with a Key to the City plaque. “I’ve given out many of these over the years,” Meehan said, “but never has one been so deserved as this.” Anyone wishing to donate to the program is encouraged to call Underwood at 301-351-2426, or Gregory at 240750-9899.

Resort Councilman Joe Hall announces bid for re-election in fall Restaurant owner opens up to OC Today about recent financial, marital difficulties ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Some things are worth holding on to, even if they’re constantly fleeting. “I know this is sandy soil, but my roots run down into the saltwater,” said Ocean City Councilman Joe Hall, announcing that he will run for re-election this fall. In an interview with Ocean City Today, Hall not only revealed that he will be fighting for the ballot box a seventh time — and for what he hopes will be his fourth win — but also aired his concerns that the upcoming political season will be filled with personal attacks, something he hopes to upend by being open about his recent troubles. “There are people out there [in city government] that are very desperate for power,” Hall said. This, he said, makes him wary that a proliferation of smear campaigns will turn the upcoming elections — and the public’s perception of them — into a partisan scrap wholly detached from the actual candidates. “I want people to be able to judge me as a human being,” Hall said, “because I am not running as a perfect person.” His financial problems already have

At a recent City Council meeting, the issue was raised that having the July 4th fireworks start late could be a problem for attracting families with small children. “I don’t think that should matter,” Hall said at the meeting, “I remember, when I was a kid, mom would have no problem with us running around the Boardwalk at 11 o’clock or midnight. The Fourth of July was special and I think that’s the vitality that we’re trying to bring back to the Boardwalk.” Hall said in this interview that he has always been cautious about any desire to re-vamp or re-market Ocean City’s image. “Honestly, I think we should be looking back to the honky-tonk of the ’80s and ’90s,” he said. “That’s when we made all our money.”

treatment to support, across Maryland. The remaining 25 percent will be sent to Komen National to fund research grants at institutions across the country to support Komen’s mission to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. To date, Komen Maryland has provided more than $35 million dollars to support the fight against breast cancer — more than $2.5 million has been awarded to grantees on the Eastern Shore. The programs supported by Komen Maryland grants aid women and men undergoing treatment, as well as provide support to their families. Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Melanie Pursel said she talked to some business owners and they said many people patronized their establishments, particularly on Saturday when the weather was better. “We were definitely seeing a diverse base of people from out of town on an April weekend that would otherwise not see much activity,” Pursel said. Harrison Hall on the Boardwalk at 15th Street, was the winner of the “Paint the Town Pink” campaign, where businesses were invited to decorate their establishments in support of the Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure. “They really did have pink everywhere,” Fowler said. “From my personal perspective, it was really cute.” Fowler said that Komen Maryland is in the process of selecting a date for next

Last year, approximately 32,000 people participated in the Hunt Valley event, raising $3.1 million to aid in the fight to find a cure. “This [Ocean City] is more of a destination race … people are staying longer, eating out more [compared to Hunt Valley],” Fowler said. Sixth percent of Sunday’s crowd was from west of the bay bridge and approximately 25 other states were represented, bringing a considerable crowd who required an overnight trip, she said. “The fact that all those people did come

More to resort-area scooter problem than ordinances address Ocean City rental business owners divided core issue ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Despite the Ocean City Council’s impending action on ordinances that would heavily restrict the operation of scooter rental businesses on the island, the consensus among local scooter shop owners seems to be that, while potentially helpful, the council’s proposed policies do not address the root of the scooter problem. What they do not agree on, however, is what exactly that root problem is – a difference stemming from competing business models and varying levels of confidence in newly imported scooters. Part of the new city ordinance would require all scooter rental shops, as a business-licensing requirement, to have a 20 by 50 foot rider practice area that cannot encroach on parking spaces or any other public-use area. The council has cited throughout the discussion of the ordinance a report by the City Planning Commission noting that shops that conduct rider training are less likely to see accidents on their rentals. “What we try to teach them is how to properly apply the brakes, how to start, how to turn the scooter in a tight area, where the safety equipment is located on the scooter, things like that,” said Waterways Marina owner Ron Croker.
“We have them stop, put their feet down, adjust the mirrors, etc. If we feel like they’re going to get hurt, we don’t send them out,” Croker said. “We’ve always done it … we stepped in [with the City Planning Commission] and said ‘this is what we do, and it seems to help.’” “You can tell in 20 seconds [during the practice session] if someone is going to freak out and not be able to ride,” said Sean Crosariol, Waterways’ mechanic. However, the three other major scooter shops contacted by Ocean City Today — Island Cycles, Cycle City, and another shop whose owner requested that his business not be named — said that they too conduct rider training and testing before deciding to rent a scooter to any individual, and have been doing so long before the issue was ever raised by city government. Of these, only Island Cycles will be potentially affected by the fact that their location on Somerset Street and Baltimore Avenue does not have a practice space other than the public thoroughfare. “If I see someone who is a little shaky, I don’t let them take the scooter,” said Island Cycles’ Nick Perez. “I support a lot of what the city is doing,” he continued. “We asked for the helmet rule [in the proposed city ordinance.] But these things have to make sense. If Avis comes to town, and somebody wrecks their rental car, is the city going to make Avis put up a practice area?” A major contributing factor to acci-
dents, according to Croker and Crosariol, is the generally poor quality of scooters from companies in mainland China. “There’s a real influx of Chinese junk around here,” said Crosariol, “and it’s been a struggle because the industry is getting a bad name because of it.” Crosariol noted that Waterways only deals with scooters from the Japanese companies Honda and Yamaha, and with some Taiwanese manufacturers, whose quality he says is much better than their Chinese counterparts. “The brake pads glaze over almost instantly [on the Chinese bikes],” he said, “or the springs on the back shoes will snap and you’ll have no rear brake at all.” “There needs to be some sort of inspection,” Crosariol continued, “you can’t go to Hertz and rent a car that’s that low quality.” A proposed Maryland state law would require scooters to be titled and have a registration placard. It outlines safety requirements in order for titles to be granted, but does not specifically give any inspection criteria. However, Elias Zacharopolous, owner of Cycle City, cautioned against classifying all Chinese machines as unsuitable. “There are some good dealers in China. You’d be surprised,” he said. “They’re the bottom of the totem pole over there, but to stereotype everything coming out of a certain region is something you shouldn’t do.” “Chinese bikes have been in this country for 15 years and they are lower qual-
ity, but there are guys who have been riding them for five or six years just fine,” Zacharopolous said. He stressed that it’s not the quality of the machine that’s an issue, it’s the level of preparatory work put in by the rental business. “What you get is what you get out of the box,” he said, “but the prep work before you put the bike out on the road is what’s important.” Zacharopolous said any policy enforcing standards on such scooters would encroach too much on proprietary business. “Just because some guys out there don’t know how to put together a bike doesn’t mean I’m going to give away my business,” he said. Only so much responsibility on the part of the rental business can be enforced, he said, because “you have to understand that these bikes are imported. If they did not already pass what the government has as a standard, they wouldn’t be sold here.” But Crosariol claimed that the disposability of the lower-end scooters was in itself a business model. It is cheaper, he said, to completely replace a damaged Chinese scooter using the security deposit from the renter than it is to repair it, meaning that unscrupulous businesses are at an advantage using accidents to turn over a stock of cheap scooters. “There are a lot of guys out there who are just trying to get their numbers up,” said Croker.

St. Louis Ave. repaving project is an exercise in compromise ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Ocean City will soon be repaving St. Louis Avenue, a repair that, despite being much-needed, is far from the city’s original and much grander plan for a street that is becoming increasingly important to the city’s downtown. “The pavement is in extremely bad shape,” said City Engineer Terry McGean, “the street needs repair.” However, the city’s original intent was to do a much more wide-ranging renovation that would incorporate St. Louis Avenue, both aesthetically and from the traffic flow aspect, into the rest of downtown. “Some years ago, when the economy was not as bad, we had an extensive design for lighting, sidewalks and a traffic circle at the First Street intersection,” McGean said. “We’d like to do the rest, but the city just doesn’t have the money right now.” The design, he said, was intended to emphasize St. Louis’ emerging role as an alternative transportation lane for the increasingly traffic-choked areas on the eastern portion of the island’s downtown. “It’s a good sort of ‘back way’ for people to get around the downtown area,” McGean said. “A lot of people like St. Louis because it’s a quick way around town, and parking
is often still free there too,” said Glenn Irwin, Executive Director of the Ocean City Development Corporation. “It is a very important street for downtown because of that, particularly in being a bicycle corridor.” The bike lane setup will remain the same in the new paving scheme, McGean said. Irwin said he expects St. Louis to remain a residential area, with the western side of the island providing the parking and housing stock that the eastern side of the island lacks. “At the same time,” Irwin said, “that doesn’t mean the residential areas can’t be improved. We have a number of façade projects that have turned out well in that area.” As it stands now, St. Louis will simply be repaved as-is. At the suggestion of Public Works Director Hal Adkins, electrical conduit will be installed underground so the city can add decorative lighting at a later time if it finds the budget room to do so. One item McGean had hoped for, however, will not come to fruition: underground utilities. For the foreseeable future, electric, phone, and cable lines will still be on utility poles. “This is going to be somewhat of a permanent compromise solution,” McGean said, “because we would be ripping up new asphalt if we put in underground utilities later on.”

Legionnairesâ€™ disease survivor sues Ocean Cityâ€™s Plim Plaza BEN MOOK â– The Daily Record Newswire (April 27, 2012) An historic Ocean City Boardwalk hotel that was host to an outbreak of Legionnairesâ€™ disease last summer is being sued for $6 million by one of those afflicted with disease. Pat E. Dent and his wife, Martha, filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Baltimore on April 18. They are seeking $5 million in compensatory damages for Mr. Dentâ€™s injuries and another $1 million for loss of consortium. The Dents are represented by attorneys from Karp, Frosh, Wigodsky & Norwind P.A. in Rockville. The Dents name Plim Plaza Hotel Inc. and the Hale and John Harrison Partnership as defendants in the lawsuit. According to the Maryland Historical Society, the Plimhimmon Hotel, the third hotel to open in the resort, was built by a Civil War widow in the early 1890s. The Harrison Partnership, headed by brothers Hale and John Harrison, renamed the 181-room hotel the Plim Plaza when they acquired it in 1970. Calls to the Harrison Partnership and Karp, Frosh law firm were not returned. According to the lawsuit, the Dents arrived at the Plim Plaza on Friday, July 29, and checked out on Monday, Aug. 1. During their long weekend, the Dents say they took showers and used the hotelâ€™s pool, hot tubs and spas.
Dent said he started to feel feverish on Monday after the couple returned to their home in Boyce, Va. He was admitted to the hospital nine days later and diagnosed with Legionnairesâ€™, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, pneumonia, septic shock and acute renal failure. He remained hospitalized for 14 days and said his medical bills were more than $200,000. Last October, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed the presence of Legionella bacteria in water samples collected from the Plim Plaza. The samples were collected from various locations throughout the boardwalk hotel. DHMH and Worcester County health officials also confirmed six cases of Legionnairesâ€™ disease in guests at the Plim Plaza before it was shut down in September, just before it was due to close for the end of the season. One unidentified visitor died of complications from the disease. The Dentsâ€™ lawsuit is the first to be filed against the Plim Plaza and the Harrison Partnership in Marylandâ€™s federal court or in Worcester County Circuit Court, according to online court records. Legionnairesâ€™ disease is caused by the bacteria legionella pneumophila. The disease is a form of pneumonia that is contracted by inhaling infected water mist or vapor. The state health department said Maryland has 100 to 130 cases reported annually. It is not spread person-to-person.

Joe Hall gives his reasons for call and vote on dismissal of Dare Continued from Page 1
Knight said that she was the one who initially suspected that the candidate in question seemed to be too well informed. “That weekend [after the interview], I kept thinking something was odd about this, this candidate knew too much … there was information there you would only know if you had talked to someone closer to the situation,” she said. The candidate then confirmed to the company the city hired to search for applicants that he had spoken with Hall. Both Knight and Cymek said they would remove themselves from the process if it came up. “I feel a moral obligation [to do so], Knight said.” “I don’t think the process is going to make it,” Martin said. “When you get a wrench thrown in there like that, there’s such a distrust.” However, Council President Jim Hall said the issue was being blown out of proportion. “I don’t find that that’s a game changer. Joey is one council member. No one council member has keys to the city that are going to unlock everything.” Joe Hall indicated that his rationale for contacting the candidate goes back to Dare’s termination. In an email, which he shared with Ocean City Today, Hall asked Evans to distribute a “position paper” to the candidates that outlined Hall’s proposed direction for city government under the new 4-3 majority that he had helped to establish. It was Dare’s refusal to cooperate with this direction, Hall said, that led to his dis-
missal. When Evans advised against sharing the paper, Hall decided that he should at least call the favored candidate to make sure he understood that, as part of his job description, he was to carry out council’s decisions no matter if they were contested or politically charged. “What I asked him was, ‘Do you understand that a 4-3 majority is the same thing as a 7-0?’” Hall recalled. “’Do you understand that such policy should be implemented on the same level [as if it were unanimous]?’” It was Dare’s reluctance to carry out decisions made by the new majority that resulted in his removal, Hall said. “His actions after a majority vote [indicated] that he did not believe and wouldn’t support anything along the lines of that letter,” Hall said. “Dennis openly resisted certain changes and allowed his department heads to express this as well.” As recently as the April 2 council meeting, city employees attacked the council majority that ultimately changed the pay scale and benefits for new city workers. They contended that were it not for Dare and Mayor Rick Meehan, they would have been next in the round of cuts. But Hall and council members Brent Ashley and Margaret Pillas countered that they had said from the start that no changes in pay or benefits would be made for existing employees. They said employees’ beliefs to the contrary was the result of rumors spread by others. However, Knight said she was taking
issue not with the reasoning behind Hall’s actions, but with his practice. “One of the questions on my list was to ask how to handle a divided council … it’s a question that needed to be asked, but it needed to be done in front of the group, not one-on-one,” she said. Knight also denied that politics and Dare’s dismissal had anything to do with her current position. “That’s why I take this [the hiring process] so seriously … I don’t want anyone to say that I’m trying to muddy the process because I didn’t want the previous manager to leave,” she said. “I’ve worked very hard to be objective. I don’t think I’m being divisive, I don’t think I’m being political.” When asked if she would still support Dare if he desired to be re-hired as city manager, Knight said that she “didn’t want to assume anything … it would be very unfair for me to state either way.” Despite the disagreements and accusations, the council seemed to be united in its concern that the current divide would prevent the best candidate for city manager from being hired. “We had a 4-3 vote to fire Dennis, and I don’t want a 4-3 to hire,” said Martin. “I wouldn’t want to be the city manager of a 4-3 city. I don’t want the city manager to know who is for him and against him. If you do hire him 4-3, the public shouldn’t know it’s a 4-3 vote.” A particular sticking point is the fact that the situation that may play out next week is the same situation that played out

in October, when it was proposed that current Public Works Director Hal Adkins replace Dare. “When I was approached relative to the city manager’s position, it was initially in an executive session,” Adkins said. “I can tell you that Mary Knight and Doug Cymek were not in the room. They left the room prior to me entering. Lloyd Martin was in the room only to complete his duties as secretary. When I was asked, I made a comment that the only way I would be interested in the job would be that I would want unanimous support from all seven council members publicly, reinforced by the eighth, being the mayor. That didn’t happen. I would hope that it was not about me personally. I feel that I have established an excellent rapport with everyone on council.” “Hal was already a casualty,” said Joe Hall. “It was extremely disrespectful for them to walk out of that meeting.” “It [the current situation] is not fair to the candidates,” said Council President Hall, “Forget about the politics of the seven of us. I would be very hurt if anyone was disqualified just because they received a phone call.” Knight had the same concern, despite disagreeing that it was politics, and not Councilman Hall’s indiscretion, that was at the root of the problem. “The person who received that call, in my mind, is a casualty of this war,” she said. “Before this most recent council, I didn’t even know there was a majority and a minority.”

Competing business models cause rift among shops Continued from Page 8
The owner of the shop that did not wish to be named confirmed that he believed such practices are at the root of scooter accidents. He also went as far as to say that the City Council ordinances where simply a veiled attempt to get rid of businesses that had been deemed disreputable and bad for tourism, specifically those run by foreign nationals. Perez said that Island Cycles does indeed use lower-end Chinese scooters and buys a completely new stock at the beginning of every season. However, he said that accidents do not give him a financial advantage. “Yeah, I can keep a security
deposit if they wreck it, but it only covers the cost of the scooter, not the cost of the three or four days that I’m down one scooter to rent. Especially when I’m only really renting for 60 or 70 days out of the year,” Perez said. He also noted that Island Cycles had invested $50,000 in spare parts for the upcoming season. “We make sure everything is taken care of before it leaves,” said Island Cycles mechanic Russell Maddox Sr. Perez said that the main source of accidents in his business was not from amateurs, but from more experienced riders who overestimated the ability of a small, inexpensive scooter to perform like a motorcycle.
“The police just need to be enforcing this,” he said, “if you see he’s driving like an idiot, pull him over.” Zacharopolous contended that if the goal was to cut down on the number of scooter shops, a more effective method would be to introduce a medallion system. “The other thing that needs to happen is that, just like it happened with the taxi companies, right now would be a good time for them to have some sort of medallion system with the scooters,” he said. “Say whatever your capacity was last year, give you that many medallions and then close the market. Guys could sell and trade between themselves.”

for Educational Research and Technology. LOUIS H. TAYLOR Taylor has served Worcester County Public Schools for 28 years, holding the position of principal at Stephen Decatur High School for the last 17 years. As principal of the school system’s first Maryland Blue Ribbon School, Taylor — a former Maryland Principal of the Year recipient — supervises 161 employees and 1,400 students, as well as all operations associated with SDHS. Prior, Taylor served as assistant principal of SDHS for four years, in addition to having held positions at Berlin Middle School (now Berlin Intermediate School) as an assistant principal and a physical education teacher. With the instructional leadership of Taylor: n Eighty-five percent of 2011 SDHS graduates continued their education at a college or an educational institution — with a military obligation. n SDHS graduates consistently are offered between $8 million and $10 million in merit-based scholarships. n Fifty-six percent of SDHS 2011 Advanced Placement test takers earned a score indicating mastery (3 or greater), compared to Maryland’s state average of 27.9 percent and well-exceeding the national average. n The high school has been designated as a 2011 Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Gold School, the highest honor for schools participating in this national character education program. Taylor was born and raised in Berlin, graduating from Stephen Decatur High School in 1978. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Education from Salisbury University. Taylor serves on the board of directors for several organizations including the Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company; Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore; Hudson Health Center, where he serves as the chairman; and Atlantic General Hospital, where he serves as vice chairman.

June 8 is last day of school in Wor. (April 27, 2012) The last day of school for Worcester County Public School students will be Friday, June 8. Thursday and Friday, June 7-8, will be half-days for all students. Lunchtime 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 adds three inclement-weather days onto the end of its school calendar. If the days are not used, they are subtracted from the end of the school year. Although schools were closed on Aug. 29, 2011, due to the effects of Hurricane Irene, the interim state superintendent of schools approved a waiver request from the board of education for this closure. As a result, three days were subtracted from the end of the 201112 school calendar, making June 8 the last day of school.
cial Nominating Commission. In the past, he has served on the Worcester County Board of Zoning Appeals and the Worcester County Local Management Board. Taylor lives in Bishopville and is a lifetime member of Friendship United Methodist Church in Berlin. GERALD “JERRY” WILSON, PH.D. Wilson has held the position of superintendent for a total of 18 years, serving in this capacity for districts in three states — Wyoming, Oregon, and Colorado. For the last seven years, he has been serving as superintendent of Poudre School District in Fort Collins, Colo. Prior to his positions as superintendent, Wilson has served as a principal of a Blue Ribbon middle school, as well as a language arts teacher at both the middle and high school levels. With the instructional leadership of Wilson: n Ninety-two percent of PSD seniors completed a post-secondary class — such as Advanced Placement, International
Baccalaureate, and/or concurrent enrollment classes — before graduation. n PSD is recognized as a national leader in green schools, due to sustainable building projects. n The student-to-laptop ratio is 1:1. n PSD has realized increased student achievement, improved graduation rates and dropout rates, and strong post-secondary student readiness. Wilson grew up in Silver Spring, Md. He earned a Bachelor of Science at the University of Maryland and a master’s degree from Idaho State University. He holds a doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wyoming. Active in the Colorado legislative process, Wilson has been proactive in helping to establish educator effectiveness rules, accountability act revisions, and early literacy legislation, in addition to advocating for K-12 funding. Wilson lives in Colorado with his wife. He has three daughters.
In addition to interview performances, finalists were selected based on information gleaned from input forums, conducted by MABE and held at Pocomoke, Snow Hill, and Stephen Decatur High Schools in December 2011. The forums were open to the public. School system and community participants were asked to describe the characteristics they sought in a new superintendent. The superintendent profile was used when reviewing candidate qualifications. After stakeholders have the opportunity to meet with each candidate in late April and early May, stakeholder groups will provide feedback to the board of education. The board plans to announce the name of the new superintendent of schools on or near May 15. The individual, who is replacing retiring Superintendent Dr. Jon Andes, will take office July 1. For additional questions regarding the superintendent search process, contact MABE at 410-841-5414.

Ocean City/Berlin Optimist Club celebrates 40 years of service NATHAN BRUNET ■ Intern (April 27, 2012) April 28 will now be known locally as Ocean City/Berlin Optimist Day, as the mayors of Ocean City and Berlin signed proclamations in recognition of the Ocean City/Berlin Maryland Optimist Club’s 40 years of community service to the area. The Optimist Club began in coastal Worcester County in 1972, with the goal of aiding youth in the community. Following the motto, “a friend of the youth,” the club uses a variety of methods to support local kids, such as providing scholarships and sponsoring youth events. Since starting with a member base of 30, the club has grown to 124 individuals – second most in the state of Maryland and in the top 20 nationally. “We’re proud of our organization,” said Charles Smith, anniversary chairman and past president of the Optimist Club. “The individuals in the club are committed to the youth and have established a high level of performance. We’re going to emphasize the members’ contributions to our organization and the programs we have supported.” Fundraising for scholarships through local events including the Seaside Boat Show, and its participation in Springfest and Sunfest, encompasses the club’s main effort, which has granted $1.5 million to 270 students over the past 24 years. Since its inception, the Optimist Club has also sponsored a speech contest each
year that awards the winner cash and the opportunity to compete in the state finals for a $2,500 scholarship. More than 36,000 young people have participated in the club’s Youth ID program, which allows parents to record their child’s fingerprints for free. Not only does the Optimist Club sponsor “Reading is Fundamental,” a reading comprehension initiative, but members have donated more than 140,000 books to local schools. Other organizations aided by the club through sponsorships are Ocean City Recreation and Parks, Worcester County Arts Council, Diakonia, among others. “I think the community and kids are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of individuals working to help others,” said Jerry Selig, past president and 25-year member. According to Smith, it is amazing that the community has been able to receive support from the Optimist Club, as support for the organization began to collapse only a few years after its birth. “Membership fell to only 15 members in the late ’70s and [the Optimist Club] has continued to grow ever since,” said Smith. “It’s a little bit unbelievable, to tell you the truth.” In honor of the club’s 40th anniversary, a dinner will be held at the Commander Hotel at 14th Street and the Boardwalk on April 28. The Stephen Decatur High School Jazz Quintet will perform during cocktails, followed by speakers honoring the contributions of members. The Ocean City/Berlin Maryland Opti-

Should council delay city manager’s hiring? The question now is whether the Ocean City Council should proceed with the selection of a new city manager or begin the process all over again, following this week’s revelation that Councilman Joe Hall made a phone call to one of the candidates. We say get on with it. There’s more to this situation than a phone call, considering that the two sides on the council have been battling for months ever since the move was made to reduce municipal government’s spending. The whole ridiculous situation is a microcosm of Congress, where the philosophical divide has only deepened and politics is a blood sport. More to the point, these people neither like nor trust each other. There is little doubt that at the root of this craziness is the war of 2011 over budget cutting, a battle that resulted in the dismissal of City Manager Dennis Dare and an even deeper division on the council. The uproar over Councilman Joe Hall’s phone call to one of the city manager candidates is just the latest act in the center ring of this circus. Should he have made the call? Absolutely not. It was a stupid thing to do. But on the other hand, does the town really need to go through all this searching again, maybe even extending beyond the fall election when a different majority could be in charge … or not? It all comes down to not what’s best for the individual members of the council, but what works best for residents and taxpayers of Ocean City. The council had narrowed its list to three candidates, all of whom, apparently, were well qualified. Hall didn’t call all of them. If the council can’t agree on one, it can pick another and get to work on next year, when, incidentally, another round of declining tax revenue is in the offing.

What happened to ‘open for business?’ Editor, Since the Ocean Club adjacent to our Beach Club was demolished five or six years ago, the Ocean Pines Association could have had a virtual monopoly on bar sales in that vicinity. But instead, we have allowed tens of thousands of dollars to slip through our fingers because our Class “C” license only permits us to sell liquor to OPA members. Association members, as well as the Ocean Pines Clubs Committee, have strongly advocated to our current board of directors as well as prior boards, that they upgrade our liquor license at the Beach Club. They all but ignored the suggestions until now. Finally, we have an answer from General Manager Bob Thompson that no changes will be made. In his report to the board of directors, Thompson stated that he did extensive research on the Internet and according to his interpretation of the rules and regulations, an upgraded license would require the town of Ocean City to rezone the property. In the board’s discussion of the issue, it was stated that it would require meeting with the Ocean City mayor, City Council and Worcester County Board of Licenses that would be too time consuming and too high a hurdle to overcome. They further stated that the assumed profitability is with the new Yacht Club and that is the priority to stay focused on.
That is absolutely ridiculous. Time won’t cost us a cent and it is the one thing we have plenty of, although we have already wasted five or six years. Here is an opportunity to substantially increase income with no additional investment in our physical facility and with no additional personnel. Yes, it will require some time and a little gumption to deal with Ocean City, but our manager and board have none to spare when it comes to income. However, their allotment of time and nerve has no limits and no hurdle is too high when it comes to losing and spending our money. To eliminate any future IRS difficulties, the board voted to make daily beach parking passes available to the general public. Yet, they elect to maintain a private beverage club. It makes no sense to me and it makes me wonder what the IRS would think about it. What’s happened to the general manager’s theme, “Open for Business?” Norman Katz Ocean Pines
Unionizing should not be considered Editors, I thought we elected people to the City Council who would be considerate of how they spent other people’s money. It seems I was wrong when all but one member of the council were willing to go along with the idea of giving a bonus to all full-time em-
ployees. Your reasoning: to say thank you for their service and your concerns about their possibly unionizing. Not good enough! As for the thank you reason: if anything, each employee who still has a job during these difficult financial times should be thanking the city. As for unionizing, don’t even allow it to be considered. You’ve already made that mistake once. Let’s not do it again. Unionizing should never be allowed in the public sector. Think about it — when it comes to arbitration for benefits in the public sector, union leaders and politicians come together and agree on cost and benefits when the people whose money they’re spending have no voice in the agreement. It’s bad enough that we have a federal government that doesn’t know how to cut spending, but continue to increase our national debt on a daily basis. Do we, as a small city, have to follow in their footsteps? I don’t think so, and at least there was one councilperson who showed common sense. Thank you, Mrs. Pillas, for your concern and consideration. Paul St. Andre Ocean City

READERS’ FORUM Continued from Page 20
By Stewart Dobson As is the case with most boys, there was a time when I wanted to be a cowboy when I grew up, although I did give brief consideration to becoming a frogman, lumberjack and, somewhat incongruently, a trampoline artist. The short flirtation with the latter as a career had to do with my belief that these people seemed to enjoy an easy life that entailed doing what I had already tried on the bed but without being hampered by a supervising adult. I gave up this idea when it was pointed out to me that a quick check of the classified ads in the Sunday paper showed there were none saying, “Help Wanted: Trampoline Artists Needed, Some Experience Preferred.” It occurs to me now, however, that I was wrong not just on this, but on all accounts and not because the demand for cowboys, frogmen and lumberjacks was not exactly at peak level back then either. No, I’d want a well-paying job, with benefits, that would be exciting, dangerous and, apparently, excellent working conditions. I’d want to be a Secret Service agent. Talk about traveling to exotic locations, “El Bobo’s House of Hot Tamales” or some similarly themed South American enterprise with a strong good neighbor policy sounds plenty exotic to me. It’s not that I countenance the sort of behavior that some Secret Service agents stand accused of recently in Columbia or, a year earlier, in El Salvador, when, apparently, the lads went out chasing Salvador dollies. Clearly, that isn’t the right thing to do, when it is plainly evident that they were not, as they previously said, “On a golf trip – be home next week.” As for the associated activities of some military personnel, I can only conclude that this sort of thing has been going on since ancient times. Followers of history (as opposed to history buffs, which might in this circumstance suggest naked historians and start a whole new scandal) will note that a certain Greek general was not known as “Alexander the Average.” Considering all that has happened, were these people to do it all over again, I am certain that those involved would behave differently and find some other form of entertainment. Still, I’m not sure if “El Bobo’s House of Trampolines,” sounds like much of an improvement.

Relay for Life event benefits ACS Editor, The word “cancer” is awful and dreaded. It is a word that shocks you when the doctor informs you that, “You have cancer.” Back in the fifties and sixties, when my aunts and uncles passed away, we were told they died from natural causes. Unfortunately, the natural cause, as I found out later, was cancer. Back then, my folks, and others, were afraid to use the C-word. Maybe if they said the word and people were more understanding, more research and possibly a cure could have been found. I am an eight-year cancer survivor, and I wish people would help in beating this disease. One of the ways our community can join together is on May 11, at 6 p.m., at the Frontier Town Campground in West Ocean City. On this day, the American Cancer Society is holding its annual Relay for Life event. What am I talking about? It is a celebration of the lives of people who have survived cancer and time to remember those who did not survive. Cancer affects everyone because it never sleeps. Our relay will honor cancer survivors and caregivers in fighting this battle. I am on a team sponsored by the Atlantic General Hospital Endoscopy Cen-
ter. We raise money and try to enlighten people that cancer can be beaten if everyone fights together. My purpose for this letter is to raise awareness and ask cancer survivors to attend the relay. The emotion that is felt at the relay when the survivors walk the first lap is overwhelming. A heartwarming feeling is felt along with joy of togetherness. You see many tears of emotion that will never be forgotten. This will be my eighth relay and every year my feelings are three-fold — joy for being here, hope for others to overcome cancer and sadness for those who never made it. Please join us by attending the relay or contributing to the American Cancer Society, www.relayforlife.org/northworcester. Nick Bartolomeo Selbyville, Del.
Attendance requested for May 1 budget hearing Editor, Wake up call for all residents and business owners in Worcester County. The commissioners have proposed an 11.1 percent real estate tax increase in the proposed budget beginning July 1,2012. Yes, 11.1 percent, which is irresponsible and inexcusable. How about cutting expenses by 11.1 percent instead, as all of us have had to do with our personal spending? Please attend the budget meeting on Tuesday, May 1, in Snow Hill. If you cannot attend, please call your commissioner and express your outrage. John Pinnero West Ocean City

Jackson, Johnson indicted in ’07 murder of Christine Sheddy NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Two people were indicted this week in connection with the 2007 murder of Christine Sheddy near Pocomoke. The Worcester County grand jury on Monday indicted Clarence Butch “Junior” Jackson, 37, on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, being an accessory after the fact and third-degree burglary. The grand jury also indicted Jackson’s girlfriend, Tia Johnson, 31, on charges of being an accessory after the fact and third-degree burglary. “I am very pleased with the indictments,” said Lynn Dodenhoff, Sheddy’s mother, on Wednesday. “It was a long time coming, but I knew it was coming. You just can’t ignore the facts of the case
and I’m glad we’ll have our day in court. “The Maryland State Police cold case detectives and [State’s Attorney] Beau Oglesby’s office are doing an outstanding job,” she said. Both Jackson and Johnson had been held in jail without bond since being charged with the accessory charge and the burglary charge in February. Jackson’s preliminary hearing on the lesser charges had been scheduled for today, Friday. Johnson’s cousin, Justin Hadel, now 22, was found guilty June 15, 2011, in the death of Sheddy, whose body was undiscovered for more than two years in the backyard of a Snow Hill bed and breakfast. He is serving a sentence of life in prison without parole. Sheddy, 26, lived in Delaware, but had been staying on Byrd Road near Pocomoke with her friends, Johnson and Jackson. Hadel, then 17, was also staying
with Johnson and Jackson. After living there for about two weeks, Sheddy went missing. The other people in the house said that she had left without taking her children. Johnson told a different tale during the Hadel’s trial in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. Hadel told her, she testified, that he was swinging a shovel and hit Sheddy with it. However, Hadel’s former cellmate indicated that Hadel told him that Jackson had hit Sheddy in the head a couple of times because he was drunk and mad that Sheddy was staying at the house, but not paying rent. According to the cellmate, Jackson told Hadel to “finish her off,” and he did by hitting her in the head with a piece of wood. After the murder, Johnson and Jackson stayed in a building behind the River House Inn, where Johnson had worked doing landscaping and other chores. They
became a couple after she got a job there and he was her boss. The owners of the bed and breakfast did not know Johnson and Jackson stayed on their property and they had no knowledge of the murder or its aftermath. During Hadel’s trial, Arch McFadden, his public defender, did not present a defense, but he said during the sentencing that Hadel did not act alone. At least one other person was involved, he said. In July 2011, Johnson pleaded guilty to a theft scheme from $1,000 to $10,000 from Oct. 1 2009 until Feb. 20, 2011 in connection to thefts from WalMart, where she worked. She was sentenced to 18 months in jail, with all but two months and 29 days suspended. She was also ordered to make restitution of $1,860.75. Johnson’s trial on the new charges is scheduled for June 13. No date had been set for Jackson’s trial as of Wednesday.
Casino owner wants to boost biz, but not with hotel, convention facilities NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) Contrary to what people might think, the Ocean Downs Casino is not raking in the cash, owner William Rickman said Monday. Rather, it lost $2 million in its first year, he said, and is why he believes the support of the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce and the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-

Restaurant Association is crucial to the casino’s success. Dialogues with those two organizations “is probably the key to making it work,” Rickman said at a meeting in Snow Hill with the Local Development Council, a state-mandated group to oversee local impact grants from the casino. The misconception, Rickman said, is that the casino is making so much money that it can afford to give away free food.

“The actual play at the casino is more than 50 percent less than what we expected,” Rickman said. Joe Cavillo, general manager of Ocean Downs Casino, attributed some of the slow business to the lack of tourists in the off-season. “We’re in the same seasonal environment as other businesses,” Cavillo said. “We had a much higher expectation of how busy we would be.”

Rickman mentioned the failed bill in the General Assembly that would have permitted table games such as poker and blackjack in Maryland’s casinos and would have permitted a casino in Prince George’s County if voters approved it in a referendum.

Ryan: artisan in a computer geek’s world SDHS teacher is one of 50 educators nationwide to take part in fellowship ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (April 27, 2012) After 28 years teaching technology education at Stephen Decatur High School, Larry Ryan has seen his profession change from making patterns in the wood shop to designing everything on a computer. “As our profession changed, I was able to change along with it,” he said. “In many ways, industry does have a lot of art, but today industry just doesn’t survive withLarry Ryan out computers.” Ryan was recently awarded a fellowship to take part in the Siemens STEM Institute, a program that describes itself as being designed to “bring teachers to the cutting edge” of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), an area he and many others see as being foundational to 21st century education. Ryan will spend July 29 through Aug. 3, at the world headquarters of Discovery Communications in Washington, D.C, where he will participate in a multitude of sessions designed to help educators become key influencers and proponents of STEM-based education in their schools. “I am anxious for this opportunity,” he said. “One of the things I see being very important is that we provide continuing educational development for our staff, especially in the STEM-related content, so that we remain abreast of current trends in technology. Because doing so can become overwhelming when you have the day-to-day stuff [of being a teacher] on top of it.” The biggest challenge of STEM educa-
tion, Ryan said, is first figuring out exactly how it should work. “I want to help our county to come together with a STEM philosophy and goal,” he said. “Even amongst ourselves, we don’t have a clear consensus on what this means or what these initiatives are or should be.” But what Ryan does know is that he has seen a rapid convergence of the more academic sciences with the practical technology elements that used to be relegated to the lower end of the educational totem pole. “When you’re a guidance counselor and a student does not perform well academically, does not learn languages or write well, you tend to say ‘put them in the tech department where they can do something with their hands,’” he said. But that attitude is slowly changing, Ryan said, as new technology makes it possible to develop more practical applications of fields that were once unattainable for most. “Tech teachers are more apt to be integrators than those who are strictly in a particular science or math discipline,” Ryan explained. “We’re now getting a real broad cross-section of the student population [in tech ed].” That change has come to fruition in part through the new engineering course offerings at Worcester Technical High School, something which Ryan says he would like to see expanded and further integrated into all of the county’s schools. “In general, I would say that here in Worcester County, we lag a little bit behind some of the more metropolitan areas where there is more influence from industry … given that we’re pretty much tourism and farming here,” Ryan said. But this will be untenable for future generations, he said. “A lot of our kids, to find good employment, will need to move off the shore and into a metro area,” he explained, “even though we’re a rural population, this [STEM] is important to our students’ success.”

Mathias suggests bus tours to increase business at OP casino “We support the amendment as long as the restriction on food doesn’t become more restrictive,” Rickman said. Ocean Pines Police Chief David Massey, a member of the Local Development Board, said any reasonable person would say that food facilities at the casino are not adequate and he was unconcerned about entertainment. “I think you need a new modern facility there,” Massey told Rickman. Rickman said it was “too bad” they did not have the discussion about restrictions at the casino in February, “but who would have thought anyone would have thought we’d want to build a hotel.” For several years, the chamber and the HMRA opposed a casino in Worcester County. Former Mayors Roland “Fish” Powell and Jim Mathias were also vehemently opposed to it. Mathias, now a state senator, no longer opposes the casino and current Mayor Rick Meehan is unopposed to it. Meehan, chairman of the Local Development Council, said, “Now we’re all here and we need to work together. Let’s partner and do the best we can.” Mathias advised Rickman to continue to work with bus tours to increase business. He also said he expects Gov. Martin O’Malley to call legislators back to Annapolis for a special session about the budget and that talks about the casinos would be likely.

such a bill. Delegate Mike McDermott, a member of the Local Development Council, said he had drafted an amendment that would have allowed player events and vouchers for food. The legislation would have allowed Ocean Downs Casino to provide live entertainment beyond the single piano player now permitted. Rickman said more entertainment is needed. “How can it hurt?” he said. Some of the restrictions need to be lifted, Rickman said, to enable the casino to be more competitive. He does not want to give away food on a regular basis, but he does want a restaurant. The present eatery is small and has limited fare. “We’re weak in food and beverage,” he said. That weakness, he said, is due to the existing septic system. The goal is for the casino to tie into the Ocean Pines wastewater treatment system by using a pipe to be run beneath Turville Creek. Cavillo said he wants to be able to offer free food as an incentive for bus groups to visit the casino. The legislation maintained the restrictions that Ocean Down Casino may not have a convention center, a hotel or an amusement park and may not give away liquor. Rickman said he wanted none of those things.

The property and improvements, if any, will be sold in an “AS IS” condition and subject to conditions, restrictions, existing building, zoning, and/or environmental violations, agreements of record affecting the same, if any, and with no warranty either expressed or implied as to the description of the condition of the property or improvements. The property will be sold subject to any violation notices and subject to all conditions, restrictions, covenants, encumbrances, right of ways, agreements and other matters of record affecting the same, if any. Terms of Sale: A deposit of $3,500 on each if sold individually or $7,000 if sold as an entirety in the form of certified check, cashier’s check or money order, at the time of sale will be required of all purchasers other than the holder of the Deed of Trust or an affiliate. The deposit must be increased to 10% of the purchase price within 2 business days at the office of the auctioneer. The balance of the purchase price is to be paid in immediately
available funds, within ten (10) business days after the final ratification of sale by the Circuit Court for Worcester County. If payment of the balance does not take place within ten (10) business days after ratification, the deposit will be forfeited and the property will be resold at the risk and expense of the defaulting purchaser. The defaulting purchaser shall not be entitled to any surplus proceeds or profits resulting from any resale of the property. In the event the property is purchased by someone other than the note holder or an affiliate, interest shall be paid on the unpaid purchase money at the rate pursuant to the note from date of sale to the date funds are received in the office of the Substitute Trustees. In the event the settlement is delayed for any reason and the property is purchased by someone other than the note holder or an affiliate, there shall be no abatement of interest caused by the delay. Any and all fees in connection with the property incurred prior to or after the sale including, but not limited to, taxes, water, sewer, ground rent, condominium fees, and/or homeowners association dues, and any and all other public charges and assessments payable on an annual basis, including sanitary and/or metropolitan district charges, and all documentary stamps, recordation taxes and transfer taxes shall be borne by the purchaser.

The purchaser at the foreclosure sale shall assume the risk of loss for the property immediately after the sale. If the Substitute Trustees are unable to convey the property as described above, by reason of any defect in the title or otherwise, the purchaser’s sole remedy at law or in equity shall be limited to the refund of the aforementioned deposit. Upon refund of the deposit to purchaser, the sale shall be void and of no effect, and the purchaser shall have no further claims against the property, Substitute Trustees or the secured party. The conveyance of the property by the Substitute Trustees to the purchaser at settlement shall be by Trustees’ Deed without covenant or warranty. The purchaser is responsible for, and the property is sold subject to, any environmental matter or condition, whether latent or observable, if any, that may exist at or affect or relate to the property and to any governmental requirements affecting the same. The contract of sale between the Substitute Trustees, as sellers, and the purchaser (the “Contract of Sale”) shall include, by reference, all the terms and conditions contained herein, specifically including, but not limited to, the following provisions: “Purchaser agrees and represents that the purchaser is purchasing the property subject to all matters known and unknown, in “AS IS, WHERE IS” condition. In executing and delivering the Contract of Sale, purchaser has not relied upon nor been induced by any statements or representations of any person, including the Substitute Trustees, the secured party, the note
holder or an affiliate or their respective servicers, heirs, personal and legal representatives, agents, employees, successors and assigns (collectively, “Released Parties”), in respect to the condition of the property, including the environmental condition of the property, unless such representations or statements are specifically set forth in the Contract of Sale. Purchaser has not relied on anything in the foreclosure advertisement, but rather has relied solely on such investigations, examinations or inspections of the property as purchaser has made. Purchaser waives and releases the Released Parties from any and all claims the purchaser or its successors and assigns may have now or in the future may have relating to the condition of the property. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this provision was a negotiated part of the Contract of Sale and serves as an essential component of consideration for the same. The parties specifically acknowledge and agree that this clause bars all claims by purchaser against Released Parties, arising from the condition of or releases from the property pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensations and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, and all other actions pursuant to federal, state or local laws, ordinances or regulations for any environmental condition of or releases from the property. Further, purchaser agrees to indemnify Substitute Trustees for any liability they may have to any third party for an environmental condition of the property. Notwithstanding the parties’ intent that this clause bars all such claims, should a court of competent jurisdiction deem otherwise, purchaser agrees that the presence of this clause should serve as the overwhelming, primary factor in any equitable apportionment of response costs under applicable federal, state or local laws, ordinances, or regulations.” As a part of any sale, the Substitute Trustees, as agents for PNC Bank, National Association (“PNC”), are required, by law, to confirm that each prospective purchaser or refinancing source and each equity holder of each such entity is not or shall not be: (i) a person with whom PNC is restricted from doing business under any AntiTerrorism Law (as hereinafter defined) or Anti-Money Laundering statutes, (ii) engaged in any business involved in making or receiving any contribution of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of such a person or in any transaction that evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, the prohibitions set forth in any AntiTerrorism Law or any Anti-Money Laundering statutes, or (iii) otherwise in violation of any Anti-Terrorism Law or Anti-Money Laundering Statutes. For the purposes of this letter, “AntiTerrorism Law” shall mean any laws relating to terrorism or money laundering, including Executive Order No. 13224, effective September 24, 2001, the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, Public Law 10756, the laws comprising or implementing the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as jointly enforced by the United States Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the laws administered by the United States Treasury Department’s Office of For-
eign Assets Control (as any of the foregoing orders or laws may from time to time be amended, renewed, extended, or replaced). Any third party conducting any such sale shall be required to cooperate fully with the Substitute Trustees and PNC in connection with such confirmation. Purchaser shall be required to cooperate fully with, and provide any information requested by, the Substitute Trustees and PNC in connection with such confirmation.

REAL ESTATE REPORT
Prices fall, housing affordability index on rise, NAR says
Moran completes training program Linda Moran, Prudential agent and top producer, recently graduated from the Maryland Association of REALTORS leadership training program, which enhances the skills of agents interested in furthering their Linda Moran leadership skills.
LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer (April 27, 2012) The National Association of Realtors reported last month that the housing affordability index is at an all-time high since its recordkeeping began in 1970. The index rose to 206.1 in January 2012 — the higher the index, the greater the purchasing power. NAR explains that the index is based on the relationship among median home price, median family income and average mortgage interest rate. When the index is at 100, this is the point where a median income household has the right amount of income to qualify for the purchase of a median priced single-family home, with the assumptions of a 20 percent down payment and a cap of 25 percent of gross income going to the principal and interest payment. “This is the first time the housing affordability index has broken the two hundred mark, meaning the typical family has roughly double the income needed to purchase a medianpriced home,” said NAR President Moe Veissi. “For buyers who can qualify for a mortgage, now is a very good time to become a homeowner.” The caveat to this good news is the current state of our lending industry. No one denies that we need smart lending standards, but they also need to be realistic lending standards. Even the most qualified buyers are being put “through the ringer,” so to speak, having to produce enormous amounts of documentation to get approved for loans. In the NAR report, Veissi said, “If access to credit improves, we could see a much more meaningful increase in home sales and broader stabilization in home prices with modest gains in areas with stronger job growth.” — Lauren Bunting is a member of the Coastal Association of Realtors and a licensed realtor with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Since then, fans and other passersby have watched from afar as construction workers labored daily to give new life to the former bar — and to what was once nothing more than a rooftop. When the new upstairs hotspot is unveiled, guests will notice it has increased in size and now includes many upgraded features.

The Skye Bar debuted the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. Cebula said the Skye Bar has been a wonderful addition to Galaxy 66 and very successful. With the expansion, she and Roger can now offer more to their customers. The rooftop bar overlooking the bay, ocean and the

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 27, 2012) Runners representing 30 states, as well as the British Virgin Islands, Australia and Canada, are set to participate in this Saturday’s eighth annual OC Tri-Running Sports’ “Island 2 Island” half marathon and 5k races. Since the inception of the resort races, the number of athletes competing has increased each year. In 2011, approximately 2,400 people competed in the races. As of Tuesday afternoon, about 3,200 runners had already registered, according to event co-organizer Chris Klebe. “With family and friends, I think we’ll have about 6,000 people there. I think we could have easily gone to 4,000 [runners] this year, but we had to set a limit,” he said. “People love the course. They love starting at the Ocean City inlet and finishing at Assateague. People keep telling other people and they bring their friends the following year.” Online registration is closed, but a few “charity slots” are available, in which runners may pay an additional fee, with a portion going to Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services. Registration for those final slots is today, Friday, from 1-9 p.m. during race packet pick-up at the Francis Scott Key Family Resort in West Ocean City. The cost to participate in the half marathon is $130, $70 for the 5k. For the half marathon, runners will take off from a starting line at the Ocean City inlet parking lot and finish at Assateague Island state park. The race will begin at 7 a.m. The 5k race on the Boardwalk will begin at 7:45 a.m. There will be limited parking at the starting area because of preparations for the Springfest festival. Additional parking will be available on the side streets or at the West Ocean City Park & Ride. Because of the race, motorists should expect traffic delays on routes 50 and 611 between 7 and 9 a.m. First-, second- and thirdplace males and females in See AWARDS on Page 47

Stephen Decatur senior Nikki Rafer signs a mock Letter of Intent during a press conference at the high school in Berlin on April 19.

RAFER TO PLAY FOR DSU Decatur senior will join Hornets for inaugural golf season LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 27, 2012) Senior Nikki Rafer has undoubtedly had much success as a Stephen Decatur golfer. A member of the Seahawk team since her freshman year, Rafer will soon bid farewell to her fellow athletes and in the fall, head to Delaware State University in Dover, where she’ll compete for the school’s newly formed women’s golf team. “Nikki’s hard work and dedication to golf has resulted in a one extremely talented golfer, who should make a huge impact on the Delaware State Women’s Div. I golf team,” said Decatur Coach Jim Krall. “Nikki has been a
member of the Decatur golf team for all four years of high school, during which time she made a tremendous impact on the program and set numerous records along the way. She quietly went about her business and in a very modest fashion she accumulated so many accolades.” Rafer’s high school accolades include earning the team’s Sportsmanship, Most Improved and Most Valuable Player awards. She received All-Bayside Conference honors her junior and senior years. This past season, she finished second in the conference with a nine-hole average of 38.58, just .08 of a stroke behind the No. 1 player. Rafer has been the top female golfer
on the Eastern Shore for the last three years. The 18-year-old said her biggest career accomplishment was placing first at the District VII tournament this past October. Her score of 75 was the best among both male and female competitors. “Her strength is her amazing distance off the tee, often crushing her drives pass the boys by many yards,” Krall said. She also qualified for and competed in the state tournament all four years, earning her best finish as a senior, tied for sixth place.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor
LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 27, 2012) Stephen Decatur’s Jessica Iacona stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the sixth inning last Friday with her team leading the Chincoteague Ponies 10-1, and smacked the ball down the first base line. The junior sprinted around the bases and scored on a Chincoteague throwing error to put the Lady Seahawks ahead by 10 runs and end the game (slaughter rule). Decatur recorded six hits during the contest. Iacona and sophomore Taylor Black each had two. Jessica Bunting and Abbey Schorr, both juniors, hit singles. Sophomore Beth Laque pitched the first five innings for Decatur. She faced 19 batters and struck out eight. The Ponies recorded just one hit. Bunting took the mound in the sixth inning and struck out one. The two others she faced grounded out. “It was good to get some bats on the ball for a change,” said Decatur Coach Don Howard. “We played a lot better than we did earlier in the week. We were more focused and enthusiastic. We looked pretty good and now we just need to carry it over.”

(April 27, 2012) The April 20 girls’ lacrosse game between the Lady Mallards of Worcester Prep and the Calverton Cougars in Berlin was undeniably a battle, but the home team prevailed, winning the competition 13-11. “It was a close one, but it should not have been that close. We just didn’t play well,” Prep Coach Page Watts Rogers said after the victory. “We completely underestimated them. When you’re 8-0, it’s like you have a target on your back and everyone’s out to beat you. The girls knew they lost to St. Mary’s Ryken, who we beat 12-5, and they were using that to gauge [Calverton]. We took them for granted.” The Cougars held the lead for most of the first half, but the Mallards fought back and were able to tie the score at 6-all by the halftime break. Rogers said the momentum began to shift in the Prep squad’s favor during the second half, when the girls took over the lead and held on for the victory. “It was a good wake-up call,” See GIRLS on Page 47

We just didn’t seem to have it right away and defensively, we were kind of lethargic,” Ferro said after the Crisfield match-up. The Seahawks had a solid fifth inning, scoring eight runs. Decatur secured the victory, tacking on five additional runs in the seventh. Pitcher Mike O’Neill, a senior, struck out eight Crabbers and allowed five hits in six innings. Senior James DiBuo took the mound for the Seahawks in the final inning and struck out two. The Berlin squad recorded eight hits during the contest.

We just need to make the easy passes and respect the ball more than we have.” Prep junior Gordon Abercrombie scored three goals in the victory. Seniors Ryan McGuire chipped in with two goals and he scooped up nine ground balls. Jake Emche, a senior, tallied two goals, as did junior Harrison Brennan, who also won nine of 12 face-offs. Junior Henry Hastings and freshman Jon Adkins each scored once. Goalie Will Hastings, a freshman, stopped eight Dragons’ shots.

inexperienced players that have stepped up to assume leadership positions on the team.” Winning matches for Decatur were juniors Emmalee Murrell (third singles, 8-6) and Libby Withers (fifth singles, 83). Despite losing five matches, Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood was pleased with his players’ performances. “I thought we played pretty well. The girls and I talked after the match about things that went well and things that could be improved upon,” he said. “We committed a lot of mental errors early in all the matches and that really put us in a hole we couldn’t get out of. We are definitely looking forward to the rematch.” The boys’ teams competed on Worcester’s courts last Thursday. Decatur senior Logan Rodriguez won his second singles match 8-6. Jason Stitely, also a senior, earned an 8-2 victory at third singles. Junior Timmy VanVonno shut out his fourth singles opponent 80. Joe Iacona, a junior, and his first doubles partner, senior Jake Blazer, secured the Decatur team win, when they topped their competition 8-5. “It came down to the doubles matches and we were able to pull out the win. It was a good team win,” said Decatur Coach Steve Berquist. “The Prep school is really good, so I thought we played well. Their top seeds are very strong and their doubles teams are well

LETTHEDOGSOUT! Weekend fundraisers offer outdoor playtime for pooches in OC, Whaleyville Bark for Life
Board Walkin’ for Pets
Similar to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, Bark For Life celebrates the lives of people — and pets — who have been diagnosed with cancer, and also serves as a tribute to loved ones who lost their battle with the disease. During Relay for Life, teams of people camp out at local high schools, parks or fairgrounds, where they take turns walking or running around a track or path for several hours. Bark For Life, a non-competitive event for dogs and their owners “to honor the care giving qualities of canine companions,” is similarly designed to raise awareness for the American Cancer Society, but it lasts only a few hours, rather than overnight like Relay for Life. The third annual Bark For Life will take place Saturday at Fort Whaley Campground, located off Route 50 in Whaleyville, between Ocean City and
Dog owners can take their four-legged friends for a walk along the Ocean City Boardwalk this Saturday, all while helping to raise much-needed funds for the Worcester County Humane Society, during its 13th annual Board Walkin’ for Pets event. The festivities are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the southern end of the Boardwalk. Registration will take place in front of Harrison’s Harbor Watch restaurant. 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, said event co-organizer Kelly Austin. Owners may submit a picture of their cat for the sixth annual Cutest Cat Photo Contest. The winner will receive a gift basket. 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.

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The often skeptical Aries might find that an answer to a question is hard to believe. But check it out before you chuck it out. You might well be surprised at what you could learn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your resolute determination to stick by a position might make some people uncomfortable. But if you’re proved right (as I expect you to be), a lot of changes will tilt in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel conflicted between what you want to do and what you should do. Best advice: Honor your obligations first. Then go ahead and enjoy your well-earned rewards. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That financial matter still needs to be sorted out before you can consider any major monetary moves. Pressures ease midweek, with news about a potential career change. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A workplace problem threatens to derail your well-planned project. But your quick mind should lead you to a solution and get you back on track without too much delay. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) An opportunity opens up but could quickly close down if you allow pessimism to override enthusiasm. A trusted friend can offer the encouragement you need. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You’ve come through a difficult period of helping others deal with their problems. Now you can concentrate on putting your energy to work on your own projects. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Forget about who’s to blame and, instead, make the first move toward patching up a misunderstanding before it creates a rift that you’ll never be able to cross.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A decision you made in good faith could come under fire. Best advice: Open your mind to other possibilities by listening to your challenger’s point of view. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You can avoid being swamped by all those tasks dangling from your line this week by tackling them one by one, according to priority. The weekend brings good news. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a fine business sense and a love of the arts. You enjoy living life to its fullest.

Spring bike events planned for this weekend around resort area LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (April 27, 2012) Numerous events catering to motorcycle enthusiasts are scheduled to take place this weekend at locations in and around the Ocean City area. 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 bring motorcycle enthusiasts and other visitors to the resort during a slow weekend last spring, the two businesses joined forces to create the inaugural Bikes to the Beach Rally, held April 29 to May 1. 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 motorcycle event to take place in the area in the springtime. During a prior fall show, bikers and vendors asked why there wasn’t a spring event in this area, Intrieri said, so the trio decided to put one together. They had no idea what to expect of the first-time event, he admitted, but the turnout was so great for the 2011 spring event that organizers created a fall version of the rally, which took place in September. “We were very pleased with the spring event. We had a lot more participation than we thought we would,” Intrieri said.
Motorcycles are parked at Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City during last year’s inaugural Bikes to the Beach event, held April 29 to May 1. The first organized spring motorcycle event offered bikers the chance to check out some new gear, enjoy live entertainment and hit the open road. The host locations were Hooper’s and Oasis Bar and Grill in Whaleyville.
“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.” Added Riccio, “The spring event was extremely successful. The turnout was overwhelming. It blew us all away. For a lot of people, it was their first time at an Ocean City bike event. It brought a lot of new people to Ocean City.” The 2011 spring rally, which included
live entertainment, contests and vendors at both locations and organized countywide rides, drew thousands to host locations, Hooper’s Crab House and Oasis Bar and Grill. Entry to the event locations was free, but there was a cost to take part in a bike tour. Rally participants also occupied several hotels, during an “off week” in Ocean City. About nine hotels signed on with the event last year, Riccio said, and all were at least 90 percent full. This year, approxi-
mately 35 lodging facilities are sponsors, Intrieri said. The 2012 rally, which kicked off Thursday and will continue through Sunday, will be much larger, with more musical entertainment, competitions, food, vendors, bike rides and contests than the first spring event last year. “Jack Daniel’s and Fish Tales (between 21st and 22nd streets in Ocean City) have stepped up as the main event sponsors to help continue to make the event a success,” Intrieri said. One of the rally’s biggest events will be a treasure hunt. The cost to take part in the hunt is $20, which includes an event T-shirt (to the first 300 registered), key chain, pocket guide and riddle card. People may register inside the main tent at Hooper’s, located at the foot on the Route 50 bridge. Participants must visit participating treasure hunt businesses during the four-day rally to receive keys for correctly answering riddles or completing activities at each location.

Also on tap this weekend is the inaugural OC Spring Bike Week 2012, which will take place at Trader Lees, located in the shopping center on the corner of routes 50 and 90. The event, which kicked off Wednesday and will continue through Sunday, is not affiliated with Bikes to the Beach. “We’re advertising in six or seven states, so we’re bringing in an additional 25,000 to 30,000 people to the area,” said Caroline Fellman, publisher of Fast Lane Biker Magazine Delmarva, the company promoting the event. “And they can’t all fit at Trader Lees, so everyone is going to benefit, including Ocean City and the surrounding areas.” Fast Lane Biker successfully promoted events on 64th Street, at Castaways restaurant and what is currently Dead Freddies, during the last three fall bike weeks. This spring event at Trader Lees will be larger, with more musical enter-
tainment, contests, games, activities, food and vendors, she said. One of the main events will be the Capt. Mango’s Treasure Hunt. The hunt started yesterday, Thursday, and ends Sunday with prizes awarded at Harpoon Hanna’s, on Route 54, at noon. An allyou-can-eat “Biker Brunch” will be offered at Harpoon Hanna’s for $15 from 10 a.m. to noon. There is no cost to participate in the treasure hunt, which will be limited to 1,000 entrants. Maps may be picked up at Trader Lees. At each stop, participants will draw a coin from a Pirate Booty Bag. Each coin has a point value, which will be recorded on the participant’s map. Maps should be taken to Harpoon Hanna’s between 10 a.m. and noon. The person with the highest point total will win $500. Several consultation prizes, which include gift certificates and merchandise provided by treasure hunt businesses, will also be awarded Sunday. Ladies 35 and older may take part in the Hot Cougar Contest, beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, at Trader Lees. The winner will receive $300 and a photo shoot as Cougar of the Month in a future issue of Fast Lane Biker Magazine Delmarva. On Saturday at 8 p.m., will be the FLBD Bikini Contest at Trader Lees. Top prize is $500 and a photo shoot as Babe of the Month in an upcoming issue. For more information about OC Spring Bike Week, visit www.fastlanebikerdelmarva.com.
