FREE WORCESTER COUNTY BUDGET
PUBLIC RESPONSE MIXED AT HEARING ON SCHOOL FUNDS While some plead for more spending, others tell commissioners not so fast NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) As expected, most of the 36 people who spoke during Tuesday’s public hearing at Stephen Decatur High School on Worcester County’s requested budget for the upcoming fiscal year favored money for schools. Representatives of each public school asked the Worcester County Commissioners to grant the request of the county Board of Education for $76.39 million for its fiscal year 2014 operating budget. That
amount is an increase of 3.1 percent or $2.28 million over the approved fiscal year 2013 budget of $74.1 million. Leading the charge for the Board of Education was Superintendent Dr. Jerry Wilson, who said, “The future of our county and our nation depend on successfully educating our students.” He talked about funds for education as a wise investment and said a study revealed that “for every dollar spent on education in Worcester County, the county gets $1.61.” See HEALTH on Page 3A

SIGN OF SUMMER
OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL
The importation of palms at Seacrets on 49th Street is a sure sign that the busy season in Ocean City is about to begin.
(May 10, 2013) Ocean City Council continued to take a beating during the public comments section of this week’s meeting over its budget decision to install more paid parking meters around town, particularly on 146th and 131st Streets, where parties from both locations accused the city of making secretive decisions
in order to limit the political fallout from fee increases. Under the current budget proposal, the city would be installing meters on 131st Street between Coastal Highway and Sinepuxent Avenue, a stretch of street parking that is often used by customers of the Crab Bag restaurant, as well as on the ocean block of 146th Street where Ocean Place condo residents often park.

Health insurance and technology costs also drive increase WORCESTER COUNTY BUDGET Continued from Page 1A
Wilson asked for salary increases, a 1 percent cost-of -living increase, a 5 percent increase for health insurance, $30,000 to increase broadband capacity and $400,000 for items, including computer tablets. Continuing the request for money for education was a stream of parents of students in the county’s public schools. Vicky Layman of Snow Hill pressed for salary increases for teachers. ‘You don’t get to be No. 1 with an average salary,” Layman said. “Teachers do deserve an increase.” Layman was so much in favor of higher salaries for teachers that she said, “I don’t oppose a tax increase to get them there.” Nita Holliman of Pocomoke was also strongly in favor of the Board of Education’s requested budget. “Come up with the money,” Holliman told the commissioners. “I’ll get a third job if I have to.” Several parents lauded their children’s teachers for instilling in them a love for learning and for spending time with them individually. A few, such as Krystal Baker of Bishopville, singled out Cedar Chapel Special School in Snow Hill, whose students are devel-
opmentally challenged. Her autistic son, she said, had thrived at the school. Some speakers opposed the Board of Education’s request for $76.39 million for its operating budget. That was a major change from past years, when virtually no one spoke about the board’s requested budget. Attendees at some meetings of the Worcester County Commissioners had voiced displeasure with the requested budget and they were told they were welcome to speak during the public hearing. “The Board of Education budget should remain as it is and not be increased,” said Ocean Pines resident Carol Frazier. She and some other speakers opposed an increase in salary for teachers. Although they are deserving, Leigh Williams of Berlin said, there is no money for the raises and they are already “quite blessed” to be at the high end of the pay scale in the county. Kellee Kennett of Ocean Pines told the commissioners it was “time to sharpen pencils” and there is a need to cut back. The starting salary for teachers in Worcester County, she said, is $42,222 and she asked the commissioners to cut the requested budget to an amount lower than the current approved budget. Stephen Decatur High School senior
Jonathan Phippin said the county “can only go for the best teachers and the best curriculum.” He said he loves the teachers and the school environment, but the schools “have lackluster technology programs.” Phippin, who loves the drama program at Stephen Decatur, praised the arts, but lamented some old equipment. “The lights break constantly,” as the lights dimmed, almost on cue while he spoke. The light board, he said, is at least 20 years old and sometimes the stage curtains must be worked by hand. “Without the arts, our school system would be nowhere near what it is now,” Phippin said. Church advised Phippin to run for the seat of Commissioner Louise Gulyas, who will be retiring after the next election. Although comments about the requested budget of the Board of Education dominated the discussion, a few people spoke about other requested budgets. Ocean City resident Ellie Diegelmann asked the commissioners to take note of the requested budget of the State’s Attorney’s Office, which asks for $1.17 million, which is $16,387 less than its current approved budget of $1.19 million.
“They’re bending over backwards,” Diegelmann said. She is also opposed to having law enforcement officers in schools because, she said, it is cost-prohibitive. Harold Scrimgeour of Stockton said Worcester is a business-unfriendly county and he wants the business community to be involved in the permit process, which he says is too slow. He wants a special commission established to expedite agricultural permitting. Kennett, who spoke against raises for teachers, also said she is opposed to the request for $18,000 for a part-time social media employee for the Tourism Department. “It’s kind of a waste of money,” she said. The commissioners have scheduled budget work sessions on Tuesday, May 14, and Tuesday, May 22. If needed, another work session will be held Tuesday, May 28, before the commissioners pass the fiscal year 2014 budget on Tuesday, June 4. Estimated revenues for fiscal year 2014 are $166.75 million, but requested expenditures are $174.13, leaving a shortfall of $7.3 million, which the commissioners must reconcile through reductions in expenditures, creating additional revenues or a combination of both.

Owner says city is punishing restaurant for success via parking Continued from Page 1A
â€œTo be told by [City Engineer] Terry McGean that â€˜Iâ€™m not responsible for what goes on behind closed doorsâ€™ is not what I wanted to hear,â€? said Crab Bag owner Nolan Graves. McGean said later this week that was not, in his recollection, what he had said. â€œI told Nolan that I presented a number of different alternatives [for parking] to the council, including the ones I thought were the simplest to do, such as 146th, 142nd, his street, 59th, 60th, and a lot of others,â€? McGean said. He had not, McGean said, implied that there were any back-room deals, only that the ultimate decision lay with the council, not himself. However, the exact reason why the council pulled the parking trigger on some streets and not others is likely to be an ongoing debate. When the decision was made last month, it was mentioned that Graves already had plans to expand his restaurant â€“ and add a considerable amount of onsite parking, reducing street demand â€“ following this season. Council members took this as a sign that parking could be introduced there with less wallet-related trauma and an easier period of adjustment. However what the city apparently saw as an opportunity, Graves sees as unjust punishment for doing well. If growing
oneâ€™s business means that the city is going to co-opt you for parking revenue, Graves alleged, the resort is creating a dis-incentive for success. â€œTargeting it financially because of that is wrong, and itâ€™s going to cause problems elsewhere â€Ś if itâ€™s going to creep into every successful business,â€? he said. Graves also objected to the suggestion
â€“ frequently made by city officials â€“ that paid, timed parking would help business in commercial areas by encouraging customer turnover. â€œI donâ€™t need to encourage turnover at a restaurant. When theyâ€™re done, theyâ€™ll leave,â€? Graves said. He also pointed out that the city had floated the same concept for the parking lot at the convention center, but decided
against it. â€œThereâ€™s no other city I know of where you can get free parking when you go to events,â€? Graves said. â€œYouâ€™re saying [paid parking] is going to help mine, but you donâ€™t want them there because it might hurt yours.â€?

dominium on 146th continued to press council on similar concerns, namely that paid parking would discourage full use of their building. “When friends or relatives come visit us, they park on the street,” said condominium association head Ron Deacon. “Now they’ll say, ‘We don’t want to pay all the money, why don’t you come see us?’” The condominium has parking spaces assigned to units through their deed covenant. “It’s very clear that we have one or two spaces, and that’s the way it is, and it can’t be changed,” Deacon said. “If you go to other condos like ours one or two or three streets away, they don’t have that problem.” But the city reiterated that 146th would be less affected because it has residents on only one side of the street – the other side of the street is in Delaware.
“The reason that any other street in town was not picked was that they were residential on both sides,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. “That was the theory behind the streets picked.” “There are 62 spaces on 145th that also abut the Ocean Place property,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “I think that was the consideration that there are spaces that are there and will always be there [for residents.]” However, Ocean Place owners remained skeptical of the council’s procedure in making the decision. “The way we found out about this was in the breach, not directly,” said owner Michael Feen, who lives most of the year in Howard County. “When something like this is done in Howard County, notices – big plaques, even – are put up on the street.” “I think you made some good points about giving notice,” Meehan conceded.
CLARIFICATION In last week’s issue of Ocean City Today, it was reported that a letter from Gold’s Gym owners Richard and Tammy China sent to the mayor and City Council concerning workout equipment at Northside Park had been sent to the paper for publication. It was not. The letter was given to the paper by other sources. Mr. China told the paper that the word “clash” used in a headline to describe his position versus the city’s was inappropriate because there was no clash. He said he was expressing his opinion to the council without an expectation of a reply.
(May 10, 2013) It is not too early to save the date of Saturday Aug. 3, for Snow Hill’s 15 annual Blessing of the Combines celebration. Becky Payne, event chairperson, is enthusiastic about this popular summer event to honor the agricultural community while bringing between more than 1,500 festival goers into downtown Snow Hill. There are opportunities for craft vendors along Bank Street, and information booths along Green Street. Craft vendors and area non-profits are encouraged to contact Diana Nolte at 443-944-4402 for space reservations. Festivities begin on Green Street at 11 a.m. with live music and activities. The Parade of Combines sets off down
Route 12 to Green Street at 11:15 a.m. A “throttle thrust” will signal Steve Hales, master of ceremonies, to begin the program with the presentation of colors by the award-winning Snow Hill High School Junior Marine Corps ROTC. After recognitions, a keynote speaker and the Blessing, the afternoon’s lineup of selections featuring area musicians will begin. Children can visit a variety of animals at the petting barnyard, then hop aboard a wagon for the hay ride. There will be a children’s activities, and the popular Tractor Pull as well as a Scales and Tales presentation from the Pocomoke River State Park.

City officials begin long-range plans for demographic changes Transition from baby boomers to “eco-gen” could alter landscape ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) The Town of Ocean City’s upcoming planning processes may seek to address what is largely known, but not often discussed, to be the resorts next big long-term hurdle – the demographic change brought on by the close of the baby boomer generation. The city’s Director of Planning and Community Development, Matt Margotta, expounded on the topic this week after he spoke on the issue at the Ocean City Development Corporation’s annual
meeting last Wednesday. “The baby boomers are going into retirement age. Their kids - what is often called the eco-generation – typically don’t seek the exact same stuff,” Margotta said. “We need to be looking at what the community needs to be like to attract the next couple age sets.” Thirty percent of Ocean City’s population is over 65 – although this number only represents the 7,102 legal residents that lived in the resort as of the last census. Millions more come to visit each year, and are the decisive factor in the resort’s economy. But what Ocean City has successfully offered in the past may not have an indefinite shelf life. “That market is still going to exist, and that demand still exists mainly in the baby boomers who grew up here with their families,” Margotta said. “But it’s
not a self-correcting problem. The folks that value that kind of thing are not showing up in future generations.” However, even if the city acknowledges that its historic base of visitors is gradually aging out, it’s another question entirely to determine what their replacements will want in terms of a resort community. “This isn’t a matter of census data – it’s studying the values of the different generations,” Margotta said. “Our partners would be the receivers of the vacationers, those businesses that could actually gather data. Its’ not just here in the ivory tower of government.” Margotta, along with a number of city staff and business leaders, are currently working on applying the resort’s downtown district for the state’s Sustainable Community designation, which would
open up additional funding opportunities. One of the things he often hears from businesses and residents, Margotta said, is that the town’s future lies in a broader base of year-round attractions. “Having a residential, year-round situation would make it more or less a selfsustaining community,” Margotta said. “People moving here are not going to need 20 t-shirt shops. It’s going to impact the development pattern – you can’t just turn a condo into an office building.” City Tourism Director Donna Abbot said that the direction of the city’s outside marketing is likely to stay in the same target as it has long been – families, ages 25-49, with a household income over $50,000. But as the tastes of people in that bracket change, what aspect of itself the city markets may shift. “On a sunny summer day, when I was younger, everyone was one the beach,” Abbott said. “There was literally no traffic on Coastal Highway. Yes, there’s still lots of people on the beach, but there are also people out looking to go kayaking, or golfing, or whatever activity, and I think the market has adjusted to that and will continue to.”

City to form subcommittee for potential skate park solution Annual passes comprise bulk of attendance; some object to insurance denial ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) Local skateboard enthusiasts will likely be on ice until the end of the summer, as the City Council decided this week to form an exploratory committee to study the controversial service reductions imposed on the Ocean Bowl Skate Park, but stopped short of restoring funding for the slashed hours. Debate is likely to continue, however, as the city’s own attendance records show that year-round pass holders constitute the bulk of the park’s business. “I would ask that we leave [the skate park] as closing in the budget, but do a summer study … and make a determination in the fall,” Councilman Joe Mitrecic suggested at this week’s session. Mitrecic’s idea was endorsed by five votes, with Councilman Brent Ashley opposed and Councilwoman Margaret Pillas absent. Ashley said he objected to
leaving possible expenses out of the budget. “If you’re going to fund it, you should put it in the budget as funded,” Ashley said. “This is just balancing the budget on the backs of the kids.” “That might get you your name in the paper, Mr. Ashley … but that’s not what we’re doing,” Mitrecic retorted. The compromise offer came after weeks of criticism from local skateboarders over the city’s proposal for the upcoming 2013-2014 budget year to cut out skate park service during weekdays when county schools are in session and to close the park entirely in January and February. Opposition from the park’s users has been intense, with an online petition started by Worcester Prep senior and local skateboarder Mike Durkin having amassed nearly 500 signatures as of press time. The closings are expected to save the city $20,000 in personnel costs, factoring in the expected loss of revenue from the closings. However, savings were not the original intent of the reduction in skate park service. That came about because of a citywide policy to cut employee hours in order to avoid See INSURANCE on Page 8A

Insurance coverage would add to expense of keeping schedule Skate park logged 10,000 visits in 2012, 80 percent from annual pass holders Continued from Page 7A
insurance liability. Early this year, the city indicated that it would be facing a considerable financial and personnel crunch from the federal Affordable Care Act, popularly known as “Obamacare.” The law will require, as of January 2014, that any employer with 50 or more employees provide health insurance to any worker who is considered to be full-time and non-seasonal. Under the ACA, the definition of such an employee is one who is “reasonably expected” to work 30 or more hours per week. The IRS has advised employers that any employee who works a total of 1,560 hours or more in 2013 – i.e., 30 hours for 52 weeks – will thus have a reasonable expectation of getting insurance for 2014, unless they work less than four months. The Town of Ocean City already offers health insurance to what it considers to be full-time year-round employees. But what the town sees as full-time is no longer what the federal government sees as full-time. To get around this, city department
are annual pass holders. “I think something has to be said here about the skate park employees.” But if the city were to maintain the park’s service with the same pool of employees, most of whom give skate lessons and provide other skilled services, it would be looking at providing at least three additional insurance policies. The city’s share of employee premiums run several thousand dollars per individual and upwards of $15,000 for family coverage, according to a breakdown provided by city Human Resources Director Wayne Evans. What the city – or the yet-to-beformed skate park subcommittee – may find, however, is that the key to keeping the park solvent is in year-round business. Although some members of City Council have previously maintained that the park would not lose that many annual pass holders due to winter closures – and that the city Recreation and Parks Department’s own revenue loss estimates were over-stated – others have challenged this assertion. “You will lose the income from the year-round pass holders if you close the park for a good chunk of the year,” Debi Cook said. Many local skaters, including Durkin, have maintained that the appeal of a winter activity is what drives
heads have been instructed to use “management initiatives” to keep uninsured employees’ hours under the 1,560 limit, in order to skirt around having to add them to its insurance pool. The city identified 40 employees who worked close to or over the annual limit last year and are on track to do so again this year. Three of these employees work at the Ocean Bowl, and thus their hours will be drastically scaled back in the coming budget year in order to avoid providing them with insurance, an motive that has not sat well with some. “The employees there [at the Ocean Bowl] work really hard without benefits,” said Debi Cook, who identified herself at the council session as having several family members with annual skate park passes. “To my knowledge, there’s no other employee who has worked for the town for over 20 years and gets no benefits,” Cook said, referring to Skate Park Manager Dave Messick, who has run the facility for two decades as a part-time employee, even though city records indicate he worked far beyond what would be considered a full-time schedule. “The kids that are working there now under his [Messick’s] tutelage are doing well just as he always has,” said Anne Cook, who said her husband and son
the annual pass sales, which constitute the bulk of the park’s visitorship. By the city’s own numbers, this appears to be correct. According to Susan Petito, assistant director of Recreation and Parks, the Ocean Bowl received 10,000 visits in 2012. Skaters are recorded each day they enter the park, even if they are pass holders. Altogether, 1,017 single-day weekday admissions were purchased last year, as well as 537 weekend single-day admissions. These cost $12 and $15, respectively. Unlimited week-long passes cost $42, of which 56 were purchased. The skate park had 237 annual pass holders last year at a cost of $60 for city residents and $110 for non-residents. Even assuming that weekly pass holders came to the park all seven days, the total number of possible visits by weekly and single-day attendees is still under 2,000, meaning that 80 percent of the facility’s business comes from annual members. Given their typically heavy use, the price of an annual pass would seem quite low. “The annual pass is generally considered to be a really good deal,” Petito said. “The rates for single days are already fairly steep. If we were to look into raising rates, it would probably be the annual passes.”

Ocean City’s beach replenishment now a quarter-century old Historic initiative turns 25 as Corps prepares to do full 900k yards this fall ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) Getting someone to hand something over to you they don’t want to give up can be difficult, even more so when the benefit you have to offer in return isn’t immediate. It’s even more difficult still when this long-term benefit involves environmental decay or natural disasters that may or may not happen. Frankly, in 1986, giving up one’s property rights to the government in order to save the sand on the beach was likely about as reasonable a prospect as the plot from Star Trek IV – the one where they go back in time and rescue the whales. The movie, incidentally, was released that year. Yet, after only a year and a half of coaxing and pleading, public easements had been acquired across all nine miles of Ocean City’s beach. And on May 10, 1988 – exactly 25 years ago today – the city’s beach replenishment program began. It is a program that will continue this fall with a full 900,000 cubic yards of sand being dredged back onto the resort’s main attraction.
“We were in the middle of a nor’easter,” Nancy Howard recalled about the fateful day. Howard was a project manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, tasked with coordinating a project that reached across state, federal, and local lines. A resort resident, she would later go on to a long career on City Council. “We had this lovely ceremony all set up with the dredge – it was out at sea, ready to pump the sand,” Howard said. “But the seas were so bad from the storm that they couldn’t hook the line up to the beach. So, at the last minute, I run across the street to Rose’s and buy a bunch of cheap plastic buckets. We had all these dignitaries just grab up a bucket of sand and that was the start of beach replenishment.” The concept of beach replenishment was, and is, simple. In order to protect it-
self from violent weather, the resort needs a broad beach that can absorb water impact and stand up to a considerable amount of erosion. To make the beach wider, one simply pumps sand from the bottom of the ocean floor up onto the shoreline. When it washes back out to sea, you pump it back again. To make the beach even tougher, you add dunes at the rear of the high water mark to break the waves. By the mid-1980s, however, few places in the United States had embarked on such a project on a large scale. One exception was Miami, which would serve as a model for Ocean City and other beaches in the years after it was begun. What triggered Ocean City’s project was Hurricane Gloria, which caused considerable damage to the resort in 1985.

After the hit, the state decided to start looking at doing its own beach expansion in Ocean City. The hardest part of doing such a project in the resort was not – contrary to what one would expect – actually moving the sand. From the beginning of the endeavor, it was assumed that the federal government would provide support via the Army Corps of Engineers, one of the few organizations in the world with the equipment and manpower to actually make oceans into land. “It had been talked about for a while. A previous city council had gone to Florida to see the project down there first hand. But what we really needed was the feds to pay for it,” Howard said. What was more difficult, however, was securing the rights to do a public capital

project on private property. In the mid1970s, the Town of Ocean City had begun to enforce a building limit line, banning structures from begin too close to the ocean. Up through that time, a person or company could build a house right up to, and even over, the ocean itself. Even though the city had forced the line of construction back, and managed to secure public use rights to the beach in front of a number of properties, the majority of the resortâ€™s oceanfront structures still owned varying lengths of beach in front of them. Thus, public easements would need to be garnered â€“ voluntarily - from each of these landowners, in the same fashion as a city would claim when it was building a road. Except the city wasnâ€™t building a road â€“ it was building a beach. â€œWe were going out and asking them to do something without paying them,â€? said Charlotte Cathell, who has been serving as the Register of Wills for Worcester County since 1998, but who before that worked for the DNR.

Securing easements proves bigger obstacle than sand on beach Continued from Page 11A
“Whether they owned the dune or the whole beach, it was a big easement over their property,” Cathell said. ”But they wouldn’t have the piece of property anyway without beach replenishment, at least not for very long.” Beside the logic of nature, Cathell and Howard had something else on their side – they were locals. “The Department of General Services had sent three men down from Baltimore, and they were the first ones in the office the state set up on 81st Street to go get the easements,” Cathell recalled. “I don’t believe they got one easement. So, finally, the DNR said, ‘This isn’t the way to do it.’” “They talked to Fish Powell, the mayor at the time, and they agreed that the correct way would be to get a couple of locals. Fish picked Nancy, and Nancy hired me.” The biggest obstacle was the inherent paranoia of property owners who were reluctant to give their rights to the government for a highly ambitious project of limited precedent. “There were just some people who were leery of the government doing anything,” Cathell said. “I would say 85 percent were probably fine with the idea, at least.” “There were a few that we actually threatened to sue or take to court, but they all kind of came around eventually,” Howard said. “A lot of people had it in

their minds that we were building wall 18 feet above their units.” Although the dunes were, by specification, 18 feet high, this was measured from the lowest mean level of the ocean. Since the city’s roads had been built up in previous years to slope the island westward, many oceanfront units were higher than their residents believed. “I would say, ‘Go out during low tide.

Now imagine 18 feet from that point, not from the sand in front of your condo, but from the water,’” Howard recalled. What helped many owners’ apprehension was the decision to install a 10-foot wide walkway between the dunes and the building line north of the Boardwalk. “When the project was originally presented, there was no 10-foot walkway,” Howard said. “The front of the dune
began at the doorstep of the houses.” Eventually, easements were gained from all 284 oceanfront parcels, many of which were large condominiums with voting boards and associations that drug the proceedings out until the spring of 1988. The initial phase of the project widened the beach and was done without federal funding. Two years later, the dunes and the seawall, which that protects the Boardwalk, were built, with the bulk of the money coming from Washington. Re-dredging is scheduled every four years, but has occasionally been moved up if the beach needs it, according to City Engineer Terry McGean. A replenishment was scheduled for 2014, but was moved up to this fall because of additional wear from Hurricane Sandy. “This one will be a little different, because the material lost due to the storm will, I believe, be paid for under a different funding mechanism and will be paid for 100 percent by the federal government,” McGean said. The federal government typically foots half the bill, with the state taking another quarter and the final quarter being split by the county and city, out of a trust fund that local governments pay into annually. Despite the considerable expense – roughly $100 million dollars for the initial widening, dune and seawall construction,

“We knew, even then, that in 20 years there are going to be people coming to Ocean City who don’t know it without the dunes,” NANCY HOWARD former project manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources during the first phase of beach replenishment and the six replenishments since – the project is estimated to have saved $330 million in property damage. That number, McGean’s latest figures show, does not include projected damage from Hurricane Sandy this past October. Today, the city is fast approaching a demographic “donut hole” of people who remember with fondness the city’s pre-replenishment landscape. On one end, Cathell remarked that those who were around for the 1962 nor’easter that essentially wiped the city out were largely enthusiastic about the change. “I remember being one of the first people allowed back on the beach in ’62, riding with my father because he owned the local newspaper,” Cathell said. “I still have, embedded in my memory, the vision of
riding down the highway and seeing how the ocean and the bay swept right over everything and met.” “All these buildings were not buildings anymore. I still can see a refrigerator sitting right in the middle of the road. I think the people who lived through that pretty much welcomed the change to their property.” On the other end, Howard noted, the city is rapidly being occupied by a generation of visitors who, even as children, do not remember the beach before the dunes and the replenishment. “We knew, even then, that in 20 years there are going to be people coming to Ocean City who don’t know it without the dunes,” Howard said. “We all knew how it was before and didn’t like it because it was different.”

Possible county job could involve posting on social media sites one who actively uses social media, Worcester County Commissioner Judy Boggs said during Tuesday’s meeting when Tourism Director Lisa Challenger talked about her proposal to hire someone to work part-time to promote the county and all that it has to offer. Social media, Challenger said, “is an increasingly important part of business marketing.” Web sites, once so popular as advertising sites, now need to be supplemented by social media sites, she said. “People are not on our Web sites anymore,” she said. “They’re on social
Part-time position would require frequent online updates to promote Wor. NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) A possible new county position could involve spending time each day posting tidbits on Facebook, videos on YouTube and pictures on Instagram. “It sounds like a dream job” for some-
and other community members who invest their time, talents and care to connect with youth and children and provide them with the support they need to grow and thrive.
WORCESTER COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Tuesday, May 7, meeting.
Proclamation The commissioners issued a proclamation recognizing May as National Foster Care Month, a time to acknowledge foster parents, mentors, child welfare professionals

media.” So popular are the sites that nearly four in five Internet users visit them. Facebook has more than 850 million active users each month, 1 million users are added to Twitter each day and “Instagram is just exploding,” Challenger said. YouTube is so popular it is displacing TripAdvisor as the place for travelers to get information about destinations and hotels. Travelers are posting videos of hotel rooms for others to see before making reservations. Pinterest is very popular with women, who make most of the decisions about destinations, she said. Challenger now uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram to promote the county, but said the tasks can be overwhelming. During the commissioners’ April 9 meeting when she first discussed her desire for a social media position, she said keeping the social media sites up to date requires more time than she has available. Because it is important to keep posting, she has been posting during evenings and on weekends. Ninety-four percent of all businesses with marketing departments use social media and 85 percent of all businesses with a dedicated social media platform as part of their marketing strategy reported an increase in their market expo-
sure, she said Tuesday. “I do think this is a very important step for us,” she said. “It’s where everybody is.” The part-time employee should be an excellent writer, a quick thinker and a witty conversationalist, according to Challenger. They should also have a fanatical passion for blogging and be able to experiment with new ways to use social media. She estimated the part time pay to be about $18,000. Challenger said the new hire, if approved in the fiscal year 2014 budget, would not work in the Tourism Department office in Snow Hill, but would work from home. Commissioner Madison Bunting questioned how she would know how many hours the social media employee would be working. Challenger said it could be possible to require the person to post a minimum number of times on the sites. They could set up a number of tweets for Twitter, a number of postings for Facebook and a number of photos for Instagram. She also said she would meet with the person on a regular basis. “I think it would be easy to determine if they were working,” Challenger said. Boggs seem to think more details should be worked out. “I think it’s a work in progress,” she said.

The commissioners approved required Critical Area afforestation of approximately 52,500 square feet as part of the construction of the Mystic Harbour wastewater treatment plant. The mitigation site will be at the countyowned property on Langmaid Road, which is considered ideal because it is the proper size, it is completely located within the Critical Area and is accessible for future site monitoring. Any invasive plant species will be removed to allow the site to regenerate naturally. The project’s progress will be tracked for several years.
Housing grant update The commissioners approved a request from Jo Ellen Bynum, housing rehabilitation coordinator, to apply for an amendment to the existing Community Development Block Grant for an additional $100,000 for the rehabilitation of nine additional homes and a time extension of one year. Worcester County received a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant for the rehabilitation of 18 owner-occupied homes for county residents with low to moderate incomes. The grant term ends June 30 and at that time all 18 projects will have been completed or are under way.
Fee increase The commissioners approved fee increases for the review of sediment and erosion control plans. Those fees have not been increased in 11 years, but costs have increased due to new regulations enacted by the Maryland Department of the Environment.
Briddletown drilling The commissioners approved the request of Public Works Director John Tustin to waive the formal bidding process and accept the $19,240 bid of Spring Construction for part of the work for the waterline interconnection between the Briddletown Service Area and the Town of Berlin. The work involves drilling a waterline under
Kitt’s Branch. On March 25, one bid was opened for the waterline interconnection. That bid was rejected because it was well above the funding allocated for the project. The work to be done by Spring Construction is the largest portion of the work. The commissioners’ approval is contingent on the Town of Berlin formally agreeing to pay half the cost.
ing a shortfall of $51,465.39, plus the remaining 25 percent of the deductible.
Public Landing pier
The commissioners accepted the $194,826.96 bid of Rehak’s Contracting to repair the Public Landing pier, which was severely damaged during Hurricane Sandy in late October. That company recently completed the final phase of the reconstruction of the Ocean City Boardwalk. LGIT will contribute $130,861.57 as an insurance settlement toward the project and it is anticipated that FEMA will provide $18,750, or 75 percent of LGIT’s $25,000 deductible, leav-
The commissioners approved the recommendation of Recycling Manager Ron Taylor to establish a fee to pick up Pocomoke City’s cans for the recycling of newspaper and cardboard. The county has been servicing the cans, which are located within town limits, at no cost for at least 18 years. The $150 fee per trip would recover the cost of fuel, manpower and other costs of operating the collection vehicle. The Town of Berlin pays the county a fee of $125 per trip to service its recycling cans.
Vehicles needed The commissioners approved a bid packet for the purchase of five standard sedans for the county Health Department. Acceptable models include the Chevrolet Cruze, Dodge Caliber and Ford Focus.

Match for MALPF The commissioners approved the request of Ed Tudor, director of the Department of Development Review and Permitting, to pledge a minimum of $9,717.19 from the general fund and to commit its retained and projected agricultural transfer tax funds for the purchase of agricultural easements in the fiscal year 2013-2014 cycle. The pledge of funds certifies that the county can retain 75 percent, instead of 33 percent, of its collected agricultural transfer tax and to be eligible for additional matching funds when they become available.
Nuisance abatement The commissioners declared a property on Sheephouse Road near Pocomoke to be a public nuisance. The property contains a collection of household trash, rubbish and junk and its grass has grown to a height of more than 1 foot.

BLC store renovation The commissioners approved the suggestion of Robert Cowger, director of the Department of Liquor Control, to reject bids for the renovation of the Liquor Control building on Route 12 just outside Snow Hill. The project includes the construction of approximately 2,000 square feet of interior store space, 400 square feet for restrooms and more. Three bids were received, but only two addressed the entire scope of work. Bids were for $184,596 and $238,700. Cowger believes costs could be reduced by increasing the amount of construction time out of peak season, reducing the scope of work and clarifying bid documents. The project involves the closure of the existing Liquor Mart at the entrance to Snow Hill and moving the operation to the Department of Liquor Control office building and warehouse on Route 12.

Project runs out of gas, will shut down NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 7, 2013) A project to create energy from trash at the Worcester County landfill has run out of gas. “I bring you some rather disappointing news,” Public Works Director John Tustin told the Worcester County Commissioners during their meeting Tuesday. The methane gas-to-energy facility opened in 2008 to high expectations that failed to materialize, largely due to Ocean City’s decision in 2009 to have its solid waste hauled to a waste-toenergy facility in Chester, Pa. When Ocean City took its trash to the county landfill, there was a “full stream of waste,” Tustin said. After the pullout, estimated rates of gas generated fell and the project was no longer viable, he said. Before diverting its trash, Ocean City provided approximately 40 percent of all of the waste taken to the county landfill. That trash was needed for the methane gas to energy project in Worcester County. “You don’t have the gas there to produce electricity,” Commissioner Virgil Shockley said. The county’s loss was a gain for the Pennsylvania facility, Covanta,
which needed Ocean City’s trash so it would have enough to burn to convert to energy. Ocean City’s decision to have its trash go north meant the county missed out not only on that trash, but on the money the resort paid to deposit its trash at the landfill near Snow Hill. In 2008, the town paid nearly $1.5 million to the county in tipping fees. Worcester County Renewable Energy LLC, the entity owning the project at the landfill, will cease operations June 30 and will remove its generators, said Tustin, who lamented the end of the environmentally friendly project. “It was really a model partnership,” he said. Circumstances, however, made it fall by the wayside. “Unfortunately, numbers at this time just don’t work,” Mark Cropper, attorney for Worcester County Renewable Energy LLC, said. Cropper also said the company “recognizes the county has been good stewards of the environment.” Cropper and Tustin said only two options were available to keep the operation continuing. In the first option, as allowed in the gas rights agreement, the county could purchase the facility
at fair market value, estimated to be $965,000, and continue to operate or contract to operate it. In the second option, the county could purchase and install all materials necessary to construct the methane gas collection system at an estimated cost of $500,000 and then continue to have Worcester County Renewable Energy operate the facility at no cost to the county. Under that scenario, however, the company has asked the county to waive the current $25,000 per year gas rights payment to the county. So, the first option would cost about $965,000 and the second option would cost about $500,000. If the county chose the second option, however, it would take an estimated six years to see any return on its investment. Bud Church, president of the county commissioners, had said it was a major decision that would need “a lot of discussion,” but Commissioner Madison Bunting said the commissioners should make a decision that day. Attorney Sonny Bloxom’s opinion was like Bunting’s. “When a boat is sinking, at some point you let it sink,” Bloxom said. The commissioners voted to let the sinking ship sink.

(May 10, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners were noncommittal Tuesday after a presentation seeking funds for the renovation of the former Mason’s Opera House in Snow Hill. The request will be considered as they finalize the budget for fiscal year 2014.
Bud Church, president of county commissioners, advised Snow Hill Mayor Charles Dorman and other members of a committee to seek funding ideas from Pocomoke residents who were involved in the renovation of the Mar-Va Theater several years ago. Dorman said they expect to “try all avenues of funding.” Obtaining that funding would be easier “if I can say the county commissioners are supporting us.” The group is in the process of creating a foundation and is applying for tax-exempt status to encourage donations. Dorman said the Opera House, after renovation, will be known as the Arts and
Wor. county jail receives award Recognition for achieving 100 percent compliance during recent inspection (May 10, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners announced last week that the Worcester County Jail received a “Recognition of Achievement Award” from the Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards (MCCS) for achieving 100 percent compliance with Maryland
regulations during a recent inspection. This is the 11th consecutive inspection period in which the Worcester County Jail earned this award, a distinction few other correctional facilities can boast. County officials also recognized the diligence and professionalism of Warden Garry Mumford and his staff. Inspections are conducted every three years by the Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards. Because of the cooperative efforts of the team, the See JAIL on Page 19A
Education Center. The goal is to encourage tourism and economic development. He and committee members would like the commissioners to fund approximately $200,000 to stabilize the building and to replace its roof. The estimated cost for the complete rehabilitation is from $1.5 million to $2 million. Committee member Wendy Myers said the group wants to “protect our heritage” and wants to strengthen the community and families. To reach those goals, they would like for the building, located at the intersection of Market and Washington streets across from the courthouse, to be used for the arts, political and community groups and for historical interest. Artistic endeavors could include theater events, poetry readings, dinner theaters, National Public Radio programs and as a site for theater groups to perform. To cater to political and community interests, the building could be “a place to have town meetings and community forums,” Myers said. To cater to historic interests, it could be used to provide information about Worcester County and Snow Hill, be a link to the Tourism Department, house town artifacts and be used as a museum. It could also be used for educational purposes and after-school activities.

Residents and property owners who want to save time and money on their yards, while improving water quality and habitat for wildlife, are can plant a “Bayscape” garden. Bayscapes use native plants to provide habitat for local and migratory animals, improve water quality, and reduce the need for chemical pesticides and herbicides. In addition, this approach to offers greater visual interest than lawn, reduces the time and expense of mowing, watering, fertilizing and treating lawn and garden areas.

Jail employees care about quality and services provided Continued from Page 18A
Worcester County Jail has achieved 100 percent compliance during every audit period, since its first audit in 1982. Mumford said that leadership and staff working together is what makes the Worcester County Jail one of the best in the state and that this award reflects his staff’s hard work and dedication to excellence. “The county is fortunate to have this wonderful group of employees at the Worcester County Jail who care about the quality of services provided at the jail,” Mumford said. “We all take great pride in the fair, humane, and respectful treatment of all involved, from the inmates to their families and friends, to their attorneys and anyone else who may be involved. This is hard work but we embrace it with a true commitment to do whatever it takes to meet or exceed the standards imposed on us.” The Commission on Correctional Standards is an agency within the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services charged with improving standards for correctional facilities and programs to ensure compliance with public health, safety and welfare. After performing audits to determine compliance with correctional standards, the Commission presents Recognition of Achievement awards to only those facilities that achieve 100 percent compliance.

Two projects that changed everything It’s difficult to find two single projects that have had more of an impact on the coastal area than the beach replenishment project, launched 25 years ago this week, and Atlantic General Hospital, which opened 20 years ago on May 21. As former beach replenishment coordinator Nancy Howard said in this week’s story on that undertaking, many current residents and visitors have no recollection of what the area was like before that project was instituted. The same applies to Atlantic General, the origins of which also predate the arrival of a large segment of the coastal population. That is only to be expected as time passes and memories fade, but the sad part of that circumstance is that fewer people exist who know how much effort went into bringing these two life-changing endeavors to fruition. In both cases, extensive public discussions and debates of just the concepts, much less any actual plans, took place, as advocates explained, cajoled and defended their beliefs that these undertakings were not just desirable, but were critical to the public’s well being. Only after that did the hard work begin, with the prospect of success often seeming just out of reach. It was only through the persistence and dedication of proponents from here and elsewhere that both beach replenishment and Atlantic General Hospital came to be. Many of those who played central roles in these exceptionally demanding tasks might be forgotten by now, or it is difficult to comprehend what their efforts entailed because so much time has passed. An appreciation for what these people did to make these projects happen, however, is easy enough to produce. All anyone has to do is to imagine what this area would be like if beach replenishment and the hospital were never here at all.

Writer supports violinist on Bdwk. Editor: George Bernard Shaw once lamented: “What a pity that youth is wasted on the young.” One could paraphrase Shaw and note: “What a pity that the governance of beautiful, idyllic Ocean City is wasted by its philistine, if not clownish leaders.” Their current mischief is banning a violinist from performing as he has for twenty years on the Boardwalk (Nancy Powell’s “ACLU claims ... performer’s rights violated” April 19). While I suspect that the city’s officials and the police cheerfully entrusted to perform classical music drag nets do not know Mozart from Michael Jackson, it is a pity that their mean spirited absurdity makes the rest of us look like some two bit backwater resort sucking up to tourist dollars. The fact that the cacophony of the motorcycle crowd with their metal salad bowls on their heads and their tattooed, if not bearded, ladies in tow is welcomed along with the jalopy bunch and who knows how many other racket
makers is astonishing. Not since poor Mayor [Harry] Kelley (may his fully clothed body rest in peace) 30 years ago tried to ban males from walking off the Boardwalk without shirts have the city fathers made such fools of themselves. Let our distinguished violinist play and tell our officials to find something else to fiddle with! H. L. Goldstein Towson, MD
Free parking streets will start to disappear Editor, One of the most important rights in our democratic government is to have transparency when public policy decisions are made. During the Ocean City Council discussion to start paid parking on 146th Street, Council President Lloyd Martin said that since this issue has come up, a number of individuals have told him that they want paid parking in front of their condominium buildings. I call on Council President Martin to publicly identify, not the name of these individuals, but the name of the condominiums that have mem-
bers who are requesting paid parking in front of their condominium buildings. In addition, I give Mayor Rick Meehan credit for thinking ahead on how to have more paid parking on Ocean City streets. In arguing for the paid parking on 146th Street, the mayor currently pointed out that there are 62 free parking spaces on 145th Street. Of course, the mayor aptly neglected to point out that, when the individuals who use to park on 146th Street for free, start to park on 145th Street, the 62 spaces will quickly become inadequate for those people who currently park on 145th Street. But then the mayor, with support of the council’s tax and spend majority, will come forward with a solution — to install paid parking on 145th Street. And so the free parking streets will start to disappear. Little by little the council majority, with the support of the mayor, will obtain Councilman Dennis Dare’s persistent goal to have paid parking on every ocean block from the inlet to the Delaware state line.

By Stewart Dobson MARK FRITSCHLE GROUP ANNUAL AWARDS I’m not much on what they call social media, which is to say that I don’t care what other people are doing as long as they aren’t doing it to me. No offense to the people who have invited me to their Twitter accounts, but I really don’t need up-to-the-minute updates telling me where you are and what you’re up to, unless, of course, your message says, “I’m currently stealing your car.” I have also noted that the key syllable in Twitter is “twit,” which I can only assume refers to anyone who enjoys watching the ripples of others in the shallow end of the communications pool. Admittedly, my outlook would change swiftly were I to receive a tweet from Sofia Vergarra saying, “Swimming, misplaced suit, bring Diet Pepsi and small towel.” My guess, however, is the odds of that happening are about the same as receiving a short electronic note from Queen Victoria that says, “112 years have passed and I remain deceased.” In addition to my disaffection for this twit business, I also, apparently, belong to the 57 percent of the male population that does not use Facebook. I have nothing against Facebook, but I prefer to bore others in person. It’s much more rewarding to see the yawn, rather than to suspect it. And that is the problem with Facebook and the host of other personal bulletin boards on the Internet. So much is out there, that you might as well be a cough in the audience during an Irish step dancing competition. You would have to post something spectacular — “Here’s a picture of me at a secret warfare facility being carried away screaming by a flock of genetically engineered drone/chickadees” — to stand out in the crowd. Besides, I find it strange that most people would shrink in horror at the thought of tucking flyers about themselves under the wiper blades of every car in the mall parking lot, yet have no problem revealing much more to everyone and anyone in the connected universe. It doesn’t make sense. In the interest of full disclosure, however, I have to admit that I do have a profile on Linkedin.com. So far, I have just 126 connections and, from what I understand, the idea is to gain as many connections as possible so that your profile will look like you are well-connected and, therefore, worth connecting to. So please, visit me at linkedin.com and sign up now. I need the attention.

Unseasonably cool temps blamed for drop in Springfest visitors Annual spring celebration drew more than 97,000 guests despite conditions LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) Organizers attribute windy conditions and cool temperatures to a decline in turnout for the 2013 Springfest celebration, last weekend at the inlet parking lot. “The temperature was seasonably colder and we had high winds all four days,” said Tom Shuster, director of the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. The temperature was in the low 50s during the day and much colder once the sun went down. The four-day festival, which traditionally kicks off the start of the resort’s summer season, drew 97,021 visitors to the inlet parking lot to hear live music, shop for arts and crafts and sample an array of food. That was approximately an 8 percent drop from last year, when 106,321 guests attended. The temperature, in the middle to upper 60s, was much milder for the 2012 festival, Shuster said. An estimated 11,537 people came to the festival on opening day last Thurs-

day, while 23,133 visited on Friday. On Saturday, approximately 45,971 people stopped by the Springfest grounds. On the final day of the festival, last Sunday, 16,380 came through the gate. “Overall, we thought the numbers weren’t bad, considering the weather,” Shuster said. The five-year festival attendance average is 100,311. Approximately 180 artisans, in addi-
tion to commercial vendors, were on hand selling various merchandise. “Springfest was great. I had a wonderful show and was pleased about how many of my regular customers were at the festival,” said New Jersey resident Gail Paolino. “Customers were cold, but all were having a good time.” Paolino has been hand-painting clothing since 1982. She has participated

Noree Woodard, of Nippers Art Studio, based in Battle Creek, Mich. made her Springfest debut. Woodard, with assistance from her husband, Doug, handcrafts whimsical art sculptures out of terra cotta, ceramic and polymer clay. Their product line includes wall hangings, hand-painted panels, wine stoppers, bird feeders and jewelry. “Springfest actually was our second best show sales-wise, ever, and that is saying something since we have been doing art/craft show for over 30 years,” she said. “Everything that was controllable – except the weather, of course –indicated a very well run show and showed us why this festival is a top rated affair year after year on a national basis.” Another major attraction was the food. More than two dozen food vendors served up a variety of dishes. Shuster said several exhibitors reported record sales on Saturday. Organizers were pleased with the entertainment, especially headline acts. “I can’t remember when we had two sellouts back-to-back. We’re really pleased with that,” Shuster said. “Crowds loved both groups.”

City to get first new condo in half-dozen years on 57th St. Twelve-unit project will be small renewal for still stagnant resort inventory ZACK HOOPES â– Staff Writer
RENDERING COURTESY ATLANTIC PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
Plans for â€œThe Viewâ€? condominiums on 57th Street â€“ the first new condo design in the resort for more than six years â€“ feature under-building parking with four floors. There are three, three-bedroom condos on each floor.
(May 10, 2013) Ocean Cityâ€™s Planning and Zoning Commission this week approved plans for a new condominium on 57th Street, which the projectâ€™s backers estimate to be the first new condominium project in the resort in more than six years. â€œItâ€™s kind of historic. Itâ€™s a feel-good for the market,â€? said Jeff Thaler, whose firm, Atlantic Planning, Development, and Design, is running the project. Thaler is also a partner in the company that is financing the condominium. â€œFor us, itâ€™s a good test market. Weâ€™re not going on the line for 30 units, or for 50 units, like we used to,â€? Thaler said. The project already has pre-sale commitments from three buyers. The building will be five stories, with parking on the ground level and four floors above, each with three, three-bedroom units. It will be located on the south side of 57th Street, bayadjacent, and directly to the west of the Maui Golf mini golf course. The lot is currently occupied by a single-story home and garage that have been unoccupied for several years. The building will be situated slightly diagonally on the lot, with balconies facing southwest. Because of the stateâ€™s â€œcritical areasâ€? policy regarding wetlands, the site has additional setback requirements that increase with the size of the lot.
â€œI did speak with [city Environmental Engineer] Gail Blazer, and she was confident that we could move forward with the site plans contingent upon the final delineation of those lines by the state,â€? Assistant Director of Planning and Community Development R. Blaine Smith told the commission. Although the city, in recent months, has allowed the reinstatement of plans for condominium projects that were designed before the economic downturn but were never built, Thalerâ€™s project will be the first completely new venture in recent years. But even a relatively modest building is still a significant departure in a market that has been stagnant since before the economic slump of 2008. That impact of that slowdown is still reverberating in the resort real estate industry. According to data from the Coastal Association of Realtors, the resort had 937 condominium units actively on the market at the end of March, down from 1,163 at the same time last year. Of those, 161 units have been sold through March of this year, versus 173 through the same period last year. â€œIf you talk to a lot of the Realtors, theyâ€™re all saying the same thing, that thereâ€™s nothing out there thatâ€™s new to sell,â€? Thaler said. â€œPeople keep coming into their office and they have this same stuff from 2001, 2002, even the newest stuff they have on the market is 2005.â€? Despite the volume, sales data also indicates that the turnover on units begins to drop sharply past the $300,000 price point bracket. â€œThe market is just not there or a million dollar condo,â€? Thaler said. â€œThe market right now is in the $300,000 to $500,000 range.â€?

Con man pleads guilty to assaulting woman, burglary NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) A pre-sentence investigation was ordered last week for a 40year-old con man who lived in a lavish, multi-million dollar house in West Ocean City, although he neither owned it nor rented in. He was a squatter. Theodore Brandon Barrett Jr. of Selbyville, Del., lived in the house with his girlfriend, who believed him when he told her he owned it. Not only did he not own the house, he had taken prospective clients on tours of the house and told them that his company, Beachside Builders in Fenwick Island, had constructed it. On April 5, 2011, Barrett and his girlfriend argued about finances and he assaulted her by tackling her. The assault caused her hip to break, but Barrett would not allow her to call for help. He held her against her will for several hours until she was able to contact a friend by sending a text message when Barrett went downstairs. When Worcester County deputies went to the house, Barrett denied anything was wrong, but they heard the woman crying for help. They detained Barrett and located the woman, who was so badly injured that paramedics had to use a ladder truck from the Ocean City Fire Department to extract her from the third floor through a window. More than two years later, the woman
continues to endure pain. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill on May 1, Barrett pleaded guilty to first-degree assault, the assault on his girlfriend. Two physicians, including the admitting physician at a hospital emergency room, were expected to testify about the woman’s serious injuries if the case had gone to trial. Barrett also pleaded guilty to fourthdegree burglary for entering the house and living there without permission. In exchange for the two guilty pleas, charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, false imprisonment, making a false statement to an officer, two charges of first-degree burglary and two charges of third-degree burglary were not prosecuted. Judge Thomas C. Groton III ordered the pre-sentence investigation, which is to be completed within 45 days. In August 2011, Barrett was sentenced to four years in prison, followed by one year of probation, after being convicted after a three-day trial in June 2011 in Delaware Superior Court. He was found guilty of all charges on which he had been indicted: three counts of felony theft by false pretenses, one court of attempted felony theft by false pretense and one count of offering a false instrument for filing. That case was about Barrett taking a couple on a tour of the West Ocean City house he pretended to own in order to
persuade them to hire him to renovate their house in South Bethany in 2009. He told them his company had built the house. Suitably impressed, the couple agreed to hire him for their major renovation project, and Barrett falsified documents related to required permits for the job. The victims filed a complaint with the Delaware Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Unit against Barrett in October 2010 after becoming dismayed at the slow pace of his work. Barrett had completed only about $15,000 to $20,000 worth of work. They had paid him more than $90,000. The investigation determined that Barrett never owned the home, which was built by another company. In addition to the prison sentence, Superior Court Judge T. Henley Graves ordered Barrett to pay more than $100,000 to the victims, including $93,998 in restitution and more than $6,500 for legal fees and other expenses. That case was investigated and prosecuted by the Delaware Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Unit. “This fraudster learned the hard way that crime doesn’t pay,” Attorney General Beau Biden said at the time. “Our Consumer Protection Unit is working hard to protect Delawareans from dishonest businesspersons who betray their victims’ trust to make a quick buck.”
Ocean City police charged a 38-yearold Rosedale man on April 28 with three counts of having a concealed deadly weapon. A police officer on the Boardwalk at Dorchester Street at about 2:10 a.m. saw a partially concealed sheath knife protruding from the waistband Roger Holloway of Roger Delano Holloway. Police recovered a large “Bowie-style” knife that was concealed under Holloway’s shirt and pants waistband. After arresting Holloway, police found a second concealed fixed blade knife, an automatic-opening folding knife and a set of metal knuckles. Police then charged him with violating Ocean City’s ordinance about carrying martial arts weapons.

POLICE BRIEFS Continued from Page 26A residence. At about 11:30 p.m., the girl tried to leave the unit through a third story window and fell. She was conscious and alert, but disoriented, when police arrived. Paramedics treated her at the scene. She was then flown to Baltimore by the Maryland State Police helicopter as a precaution. She was later released to her parents. Foul play is not suspected in the incident. Police are not releasing the name of the victim or other juveniles involved, but they said the girl was a county resident. Findings of the incident will be forwarded to Worcester County Social Services for further investigation.
Burglaries The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation is investigating two residential burglaries. The first was at 10:30 a.m. April 30, when the Worcester County Sheriffâ€™s Office responded to the area of Brantley Road near Pocomoke for a reported burglary in progress. A person or persons forced entry into the residence, when the owner was not at home, and stole several items. The second incident occurred that same day when deputies responded to the area of Shockley Road near Snow Hill for a reported burglary. After returning to the residence, the homeowner had observed that several

items had been stolen. It is believed that the burglary happened during the morning on April 30, with forced entry into the residence. Anyone with information about these burglaries or citizens that may have noticed something suspicious in these areas should notify the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation at 410-632-1111.

Crack cocaine A two-month investigation into crack cocaine distribution led to the May 2 arrest of three Pocomoke residents. The investigation began after citizens complained about a residence on Walnut Street in Pocomoke. Members of the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team executed a search and seizure warrant at the property. During that raid, Jerren Hinmon, 23, ran, but was apprehended two blocks away. Two men in the house, James Orville Taylor, 60, and Anthony Tyrone Jenkins, 55, were taken into custody. Investigators found a small quantity of crack cocaine and marijuana in the house. Taylor and Jenkins were charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession of paraphernalia. Hinmon was charged with possession of marijuana. The Criminal Enforcement Team was assisted by the Pocomoke Police Department, the Worcester County STAR Team and the Worcester County Sheriffâ€™s Office.

Senior citizens warned about ‘relative’ phone scam Prepare for spring storms
(May 10, 2013) Scammers pretending to be a relative in trouble are scamming senior citizens, according to the Ocean City Police Department and Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. Typically, the scammer will call the victim and claim to be their grandchild, child, niece or nephew, depending on what level of information they have about the family. The scammer tells the victim that they are in trouble. Sometimes, they say they have been arrested and are in jail and need help. In some cases, another scammer will claim to be a lawyer, a bail bondsman, a deputy or a jail official to convince the victim that the scam is legitimate.
The scammer then asks for credit card information or money, sent to a Western Union office out of the area, in order to get them out of jail or whatever harmful situation the scam presents. Ocean City police said scammers are using family knowledge, often learned from the Internet, to make the scam more convincing. Also, unlike most scams, the scammer does not have a foreign accent, but the voice often does not resemble the voice of the family member supposedly in trouble. Police remind citizens to never wire money to strangers or someone they have not met in person. Request to wire
money are red flag signs that it’s a fraud. Anyone who gets such a call should contact another family member, a trusted friend or their local police department so they can help evaluate the situation and try to contact the loved one. If people are told that a family member of loved one is in legal trouble, it is wise to verify this information by contacting other family members or law enforcement. People who believe they have been targets or victims of a scam or who have noticed unauthorized activity on any of their financial accounts should contact their financial institution and report the issue to their local law enforcement agency.

(May 10, 2013) Spring has officially arrived on Delmarva and with it comes an increased risk of late afternoon and evening thunderstorms, some severe, as cold air masses converge with warm spring air. Worcester County Emergency Services encourages residents to take time now to prepare for severe spring weather emergencies. Keep fresh batteries on hand for flashlights and portable radios. Keep a supply of ready to eat foods that do not have to be heated or cooked in the event of power outages. Consider investing in a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radio, which makes it possible to remain informed on storms and to receive emergency information. In the event of a power failure, watch for and steer clear of downed power lines, as some lines may remain energized. Contact Emergency Services at 410632-1311 or visit www.co.worcester. md.us and click on WCES under the heading County Departments to download a copy of the free Family Emergency Preparedness Guide. This guide has information on how to prepare for and respond to natural and manmade emergencies and includes important emergency contact information. Copies of the guide are also available at all five branches of the Worcester County Library and most municipal offices.

(May 10, 2013) Twenty years ago on May 21, the long and tortuous path to establish a community hospital in Worcester County came to fruition. The opening of Atlantic General Hospital on that Friday saw long-time proponents, political figures, volunteers and business people gather to witness the culmination of years of politicking, planning, fundraising and, eventually, building the areaâ€™s first acute care facility. It was a triumphant moment made possible by an exceptionally determined group of citizens, especially considering that the effort to give the county its own hospital dates back to 1945. That was when more than 60 members and guests of the Lions Club attended a dinner meeting at the Atlantic Hotel to announce $105,025 in pledges to the War Memorial Worcester County Hospital campaign. But that and subsequent attempts to build a hospital failed for a variety of reasons until early in the 1990s, when the Worcester County Commissioners created a citizens group to pursue this goal once again. Members of this assembly came from every area of the coastal community: lawyers, doctors, business people, volunteers, builders, Realtors, retirees, nurses, restaurateurs, teachers and politicians. The difference then was that all the elements necessary to make Atlantic General Hospital happen came together at the right moment â€” the dedication of the citizens group, the support of local governments, the generosity of the public and the intervention of a powerful ally at the state level, then Gov. William Donald Schaefer. Altogether, the public donated some $4 million to the cause, while governments contributed $12.5 million. AGH volunteers, with the help of friends from across the state, also hacked their way through a jungle of regulations in order to receive permission to build. From blurry concept to blueprints to a fully functioning facility, AGH has continued to grow over the past two decades, not just in the numbers of people served or the size of its staff, but technologically as well. The hospital, which serves more than 117,000 patients per year from Selbyville, Del. to Pocomoke, has made electronic medical records integration one of its strategic initiatives and improving the quality of its services a core principle. See ATLANTIC on Page 31A

Atlantic General serves more than 17,000 patients per year Continued from Page 30
President and CEO Michael Franklin said at the hospital’s anniversary banquet on May 2, that part of the celebration was to commemorate “the good quality work that people do here.” He told the audience of roughly 150 employees, executives and dignitaries that the staff at AGH performed “some of the best quality care you can find anywhere.” Franklin was keen to highlight technological advances that he said had helped shorten anesthesia, antibiotics and emergency care wait times, improve quality and efficiency of medical and surgical care, and expedite the healing of wounds. But he also said that the evolving
focus of the hospital was to minimize the need for acute care in the first place. “If you need us, we are here,” he said. “But we are going to help you to not need us.” To that end, Franklin recognized several staff members whose diligence had allowed the hospital to achieve major improvements in infection control and pharmaceutical safety. Jane Hwa-Huang, received the “Patient Safety Ambassador Award,” which is presented each quarter to staff members who have identified and reported a potential patient safety risk. Franklin said Haw-Huang and two of her interns, University of Maryland Eastern Shore pharmacy students Mike Geesaman and See HOSPITAL on Page 32A

Bangura Sarian, identified an error in the pharmacy computer system that would have allowed patients to receive a duplicate of a particular medication. “Because of their diligence in identifying and reporting the problem, the hospital is able to avoid such potential errors in the future,” Franklin said. He also recognized the Housekeeping Department staff, whose work has led to a major increase in the satisfaction level of patients and whose clean-down techniques in hospital rooms had helped the facility to decrease the likelihood of hospital borne infections. Hugh Cropper, chairman of the Quality Committee, said “Every contribution of every employee makes a difference for the quality of service we provide.” Franklin also expressed his appreciation for the hospital’s 360 volunteers, who he said provided services worth a value of $600,000 annually. Melanie Pursel, executive director of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, was on hand to present Franklin with a certificate of excellence for the hospital’s 20 years of providing service to the community. John H. “Jack” Burbage, Jr., chairman of the AGH board of Trustees, called AGH, “The best small hospital in the United States.” He said he was proud to be a part of it and remarked that when
the institution had opened it was “under budget and on time.” AGH began as a 62-bed hospital and remains so today, but many of expansions and improvements have been instituted over the years, the latest of which is an expanded and renovated cafeteria. Ten years ago, the original small emergency room was expanded when the hospital added 33,000 square feet of space. In 2008, the AGH campus gained the 42,000 square-foot James G. Barrett Medical Office Building with space for the Atlantic Endoscopy Center, The Atlantic General Hospital Wound Care Center and other healthcare services. But back in the early 1990s, as those initial advocates organized in pursuit of what everyone knew, but would not acknowledge, was a long shot, they could not have envisioned what their efforts would bring about. While the community has contributed millions of dollars to the hospital, the return on that investment goes beyond the major improvement in health care. That $27 million project, which opened with a staff of fewer than 30 physicians and 200 employees, went on to become an economic engine as one of the coastal area’s largest employers, with nearly 200 physicians, 800 employees and an annual payroll of more than $30 million.
Members of the Atlantic General Hospital fundraising committee mark the occasion of having reached their goal. On the committee, from left, Dr. Frank Townsend, Nancy Lynch Berger, Worcester County Commissioner James G. Barrett and the hospital’s first CEO William Donatelli.

With OCBP out, model block may be abbreviated Eastern third of target area could stay in private hands after price impasse ZACK HOOPES â– Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) Despite the major step taken with the probable relocation of the Ocean City Beach Patrol headquarters, downtown Ocean Cityâ€™s long-awaited â€œmodel blockâ€? project may actually end up being more of a â€œmodel three-fifths of a block.â€? â€œIt may not be a full block,â€? Ocean City Development Corporation Executive Director Glenn Irwin said this week. â€œRight now, I would say that the city owns probably about 60 to 65 percent of that whole block.â€? â€œIf we canâ€™t purchase all the property on the block, for whatever reason, weâ€™re trying to work with the city to package the properties the city does have under its name for a future project.â€? As originally conceived roughly a decade ago, the cityâ€™s model block project would consist of the city gradually acquiring an entire block of under-utilized or under-developed downtown land. The city, with the assistance of the publicly backed OCDC,
would then market that assembled parcel to a developer with specific stipulations that the site be built to the cityâ€™s overall design, namely, a mixeduse project that would help spark downtown reinvestment and vibrancy. The target block for such an endeavor has been space bordered by Baltimore and Philadelphia Avenues on the east and west and Dorchester and Somerset Streets on the north and south. The block contains what used to be, prior to 1993, the Ocean City Police Departmentâ€™s headquarters. When the OCPD moved to the public safety building at 65th Street, the space was occupied by the Ocean City Beach Patrol. Last week, however, the City Council approved funding to go forward with designing a new OCBP headquarters, to be located a block north of the current building, which is in serious disrepair. This will free up a large chunk of the block. The city also owns three other buildings to the east of the current OCBP facility, which are managed by OCDC as housing for seasonal city workers. These could be vacated as well, though, if a project were to come through. However, the rest of the block is privately owned, although some of it is
for sale, including Hallâ€™s Pioneer Hotel, on the corner of Somerset and Baltimore, and the house to the west of it. After several rounds of back-andforth this winter, however, the city appears to have made little headway on a deal with the Hall family. â€œThe town has approached the Halls, and the Halls have approached the town several times,â€? said former City Councilman Joe Hall, whose father has owned the parcel for decades. â€œWe were far apart on an offer that we could agree on,â€? Hall said. â€œThe offer made by the town was substantially below the assessed value.â€? However, glimmers of a real estate recovery mean that OCDC may soon be comfortable with the city pulling the trigger without the entire block. â€œWe knew it was going to be a slow process,â€? Irwin said. â€œBut the economic times are approaching. It may be the role of the developer, if he can negotiate with these owners to get a bigger piece of the block, and possibly offer a better price than the city.â€? â€œThe concept of model block was kind of skewed to say we had to have the whole block, which we donâ€™t,â€? Irwin said. â€œThe attractiveness was that the developer could come into these properties that were ready to build on.â€?

OCDC holds annual meeting, award recognitions ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) The Ocean City Development Corporation held its annual meeting last Wednesday night at Shenanigan’s Irish Pub & Grille on the Boardwalk, entertaining a packed crowd of public officials and business leaders while recognizing its most important contributors and success stories. “Without your help and continued support, we would not survive,” said OCDC President Bob Givarz. OCDC is a non-profit organization, funded via public grants and private fundraising, that finances urban redevelopment in downtown Ocean City. The organization offers several programs, most notably its façade improvement initiative, which provides partial funding for property owners to renovate the exteriors of aging buildings and improve their streetscapes. To date, Givarz said, OCDC has financed 138 façade projects, with another eight under way, representing more than $4.7 million dollars of pub-
Walter and Susan Madigosky at 102 South Philadelphia Avenue. Individual awards were given to Town of Ocean City Public Works Director Hal Adkins, for his assistance with a number of public projects, as well as to former OCDC President and outgoing board of directors member Greg Shockley. “When I first started, there were all these guys who had kept the town running for so long, and it was an opportunity to learn from them,” Shockley said. “There were so many great people on that board, and there still are.” City Manager David Recor, who began his career in Ocean City less than a year ago, and Planning and Community Development Director Matt Margotta, who started in January, spoke on their first impressions of the resort. “When I came here,” Margotta remarked, “I found a lot of knowledge on the public and private side. The private side is what really surprised me, and another thing that makes Ocean City unique. That level of experience and interest isn’t common other places.”

Former attorney guilty of theft NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 10, 2013) A former West Ocean City attorney was sentenced Wednesday to two years in jail after a jury found her guilty of four counts of theft. Allison Elizabeth Novelli was disbarred Oct. 9, because of the misuse of funds entrusted to her by her real estate title company. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill, Judge Dale Cathell granted the motion of defense attorney Michael Farlow for judgment of acquittal on four embezzlement counts and the single bad check count. The four remaining counts of theft from $1,000 to less than $10,000 went to the jury, which deliberated for slightly more than one hour because returning the guilty verdicts. Judge Cathell, who retired from the Court of Appeals, sentenced Novelli to two years in jail, with all but one year suspended, to be followed by one year of unsupervised probation. He also ordered restitution to be paid during her probation period.

Iron Furnace rides set for Saturday
LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) The Stephen Decatur girls’ lacrosse team squeaked out a 7-6 victory over the Parkside Rams last Friday in Salisbury to finish the regular season with a 10-2 record. The Lady Seahawks grabbed the Decatur Coach early lead, 3-0, but the Bob Musitano Rams fought back to gain a 4-3 advantage. At halftime, Decatur led 5-4. The visiting Decatur squad increased its lead to 7-5 in the second half, but Parkside cut it to one goal with about eight minutes to play. “Then we just held the ball. We ran a ton of time off the clock,” Decatur Coach Bob Musitano said. “It was a game of controlling the ball right off the draw. We got the first three draws and the first three goals.” Captain Annie Brown and Eileen Hayman, both seniors, each scored two goals. Sophomore Blair Yesko, junior Layla Fowler (one assist) and senior captain Ashley Trice (one assist) each had a goal. Senior goalie Skylar Siegfried stopped seven Parkside shots. “It was a good game. The teams are well matched,” Musitano said. The victory earned Decatur a spot in the Bayside Conference championship game. The Seahawks were set to face-off against the Queen Anne’s Lions at County Stadium in Salisbury on Tuesday, but the game was canceled because of rain and flooding. May 7 was the final day to play conference matches before the regional tournament begins, so Queen Anne’s and Decatur were declared coBayside champs. Decatur received the No. 2 See LADY on Page 40A

Drew Leto and Carl Echols competed at the black belt level and placed in the top of their divisions in both sparring and forms. “The team did fantastic and represented themselves and the school extremely well. We are very proud of them,” said Tanja Giles, who leads the team. The CMA tournament team members have all qualified for June’s World Tae Kwon Do Alliance National Championship in Memphis.
(May 10, 2013) The Worcester Prep tennis teams’ final match of the regular season was cut short Monday due to rain in Princess Anne. Only the second singles match was completed in the girls’ competition. Prep junior Hannah Esham won 8-1. The Washington Jaguars forfeited the second doubles match to Worcester.

letic Conference tournament in Easton today, Friday. Each school can enter two representatives in each of the five divisions: boys’ and girls’ singles, doubles and mixed doubles for individual championships. Points will be accumulated for the team titles. The Lady Mallards finished the 2013 regular season 15-2. The girls are competing for their eighth consecutive team award. “I have been very proud of the girls this entire season for their efforts on the court. Each match someone has stepped up to help out, often in difficult situations,” said Prep Coach Cyndee Hudson. “The girls are excited about the prospects of winning another ESIAC tournament.” The Worcester boys’ team went 9-6 during the regular season. The boys are hoping to bring home the title this year. They previously won the trophy in 2010. “I have been extremely pleased with the progress that almost all of the team has shown over the past several weeks,” Coleman said. “The big question for us is, can we maintain that level of play throughout the tournament? If we can, I believe we have an opportunity to upset Sts. Peter & Paul and bring home a championship.”

Seahawks to host Easton today in East Regional quarterfinals LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) The Stephen Decatur boys’ lacrosse team finished the regular season on a high note, with a 13-8 victory over the Parkside Rams last Friday in Berlin. Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum was pleased with the Seahawks’ performance, as the boys led 5-2 at the end of the first quarter. The home team went into the halftime break on top 9-2. “We played very well. Our offense was very good and the defense giving up
only two goals in the first half was excellent,” Lathroum said. “The boys worked really hard and they deserved it.” Senior captain Andrew Ternahan scored five goals and had two assists. Sophomore Corey Gwin netted three goals and senior Riley McCabe scored twice and had an assist. Senior captain Brooks Gilbert stopped 13 Rams’ shots in goal for Decatur. “We have some momentum and a lot of confidence,” Lathroum said. The victory earned Decatur a spot in Tuesday’s Bayside Conference champi-
onship game alongside the Kent Island Buccaneers at County Stadium in Salisbury. The Seahawks anxiously anticipated a rematch with the Bucs after losing to the squad 10-7 on March 26. Unfortunately, the game was cancelled because of rain and flooding, so Decatur and Kent Island were declared co-Bayside champions. “We were really looking forward to it. They were ready to play,” Lathroum said. “It’s become a grudge match [games between Decatur and Kent Island].”
The two teams will most likely meet in the 3A-2A East Regional tournament. Decatur earned a first-round bye and the No. 2 seed in the District VIII Sectional portion of the east bracket. Kent Island received the No. 1 seed. The Seahawks will host the No. 3 Easton Warriors at 5 p.m. today, Friday. “We can’t take anything for granted. We just need to take one game at a time,” Lathroum said. “They’re working hard in practice and we’re ready to do some damage Friday.” If Decatur wins, the team could play Kent Island on Monday.

Worcester boys’ lax team wins fifth consecutive ESIAC title fender Michael Brittingham, who the coach said had his best game of the season, freshman short stick defensive midfielder Ross Dickerson and goalie Wade Walter. The freshman goalie stopped seven Dragons’ shots. “I thought we did well,” Gates said. “Last week was one of the toughest weeks I’ve had at Worcester, but to see the way the kids responded was great.” Last Tuesday, the Mallards poor performance led to a 10-8 loss to Indian River. The next day, the boys’ played well and gave it their all but fell short against Wilmington Friends, 12-9. A few days later, the Prep squad came out flat against St. Andrews on May 3, and lost 10-6. In addition to the ESIAC, the Mallards are also in the Metro Independent Lacrosse League’s east division this year. Since the same teams are in the MILL and ESIAC playoffs, Tuesday’s game was also the MILL quarterfinals. The win advanced Worcester to Wednesday’s MILL semifinals. The Berlin team traveled to the Annapolis area to battle the Calverton Cougars, but lost 18-6.

gelo outscored their second doubles competition 8-3. “It was 2-2 going in to the final matches, so we were right there with them,” said Decatur Coach Steve Berquist. Only the Decatur girls’ squad competed on Monday against Bennett. The teams were going head-to-head for a spot in the Bayside Conference championship match against the top north school, the Easton Warriors. C. Petsche and DePaul trailed 5-2 in their first doubles match, but fought back and the contest went into a tiebreaker set. The Decatur pair won 7-3. V. Petsche and James were victorious 8-5 at second doubles. Whigham, who was playing with a sore knee, fell behind 5-1 in her third singles match, but she persevered and won 9-7. The score was tied 3-3 with the first singles match under way. Seahawks’ senior Emmalee Murrell led 6-5 when the match was postponed because of
darkness. It was scheduled to be completed Thursday (after press time). The winning team will face Easton for the conference championship title. (Match day and time had yet to be determined as of Thursday morning.) “Overall, I was happy with their play,” Greenwood said of the Seahawks. “Everything was close. Unfortunately, the game scores are not always [indicative] of the matches.” Eight players will represent Decatur during the District VIII two-day tournament, May 16-17, in Cambridge. Senior Madison Pope will compete in girls’ singles action, while Whigham has partnered with senior Lexi Ashton for doubles.

Clippers,Ramstake down Seahawks to end regular season LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) The Stephen Decatur baseball team wrapped up regular season competition with losses to the Parkside Rams and James M. Bennett Clippers, but the Seahawks are looking ahead to the 3A East Regional tournament. Last Friday, the Rams came to Berlin to play the Seahawks. In the bottom of the fourth inning, with junior Chase Coursey on third base and sophomore Justin Meekins on second, Jacob Hickman’s sacrifice fly to right field drove Coursey home to give Decatur the 1-0 lead. In the top of the fifth, Parkside tallied three runs to pull ahead. The Seahawks had opportunities to score with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth. The Rams got a forced out at home for Decatur’s first out of the inning. The Seahawks failed to produce offensively, leaving runners stranded. Parkside held on for a 3-1 victory. Sophomore Grant Donahue threw six innings. He struck out seven and allowed six hits. Sophomore Sean Colgan took over in the seventh inning, where he walked one and held Parkside to no hits. Meekins had two of Decatur’s three hits. “We didn’t cash in when we needed to,” said Decatur Coach Rich Ferro. “Even though we didn’t hit and we lost, I thought we played OK. We played very well defensively.” On Monday, Bennett scored a run in the third inning, but Decatur answered in the fourth. The score was tied 1-1 in Salisbury as the game went into extra innings. The Clippers scored in the bottom of the eighth to win 2-1. Colgan started on the mound and in five innings he allowed four hits, struck out two and walked two. Junior Andrew Borradaile threw the final three innings. He struck out one and allowed a hit. Decatur (13-5) was awarded the No. 3 seed and a first-round bye in the 3A East Region tournament bracket. “They’re trying to get better every day,” Ferro said. “Parkside and Bennett is who we need to face going into the playoffs. Hopefully, those tough games helped get them prepared [for the post season].” The Seahawks will host the winner of today’s game between the No. 6 Mt. Hebron Vikings and the No. 11 Annapolis Panthers, on Monday at 4 p.m. in Berlin.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) Nancy Bolt was a general building contractor for 19 years, but the dream of opening her own eatery was “20 years in the making.” Now was the right time for a career change, she said Monday while sitting inside her new business, The Greenhouse, located at 1503 Philadelphia Ave. in Ocean City. “Everything has a time and a place,” Bolt said. “This location was the right fit.” A unit in the shopping center between 15th and 16th streets became available and she took over the space on March 6. After some renovations, which included painting, new electric and plumbing, refinishing the floors and building the kitchen area, Bolt opened The Greenhouse on April 27, and business has been booming. “It’s going well so far. I’m so stoked,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of repeat business.” Bolt wants to offer customers a healthy alternative and fresh menu options. Everything is made to order. Every morning she seasons chicken, stuffs it with apples and roasts it. She then hand-pulls the meat for her homemade chicken salad, which is a family recipe. Bolt’s shrimp macaroni salad is also a family recipe. She makes her own cole slaw and macaroni salad and most of the salad dressings, as well. “I want to make everything fresh. That way, I know there’s no preservatives,” she said. “If I can buy organic, I do. It’s important to me to have as fresh as possible.” Breakfast items include sandwiches with egg, cheese and choice of meat, as well as smoked salmon, oatmeal, honey infused yogurt and homemade granola.

Some of the sandwich choices include Italian coldcut, turkey bacon and avocado, Reuben, Rachel, chicken, turkey, shrimp or seafood salad and veggie. An assortment of breads and wraps, including gluten free and raw options, are available. Bolt said she plans to start baking her own bread in the near future. A selection of vegetarian, vegan and raw foods will be featured daily, based on the availability of the freshest ingredients. “Anything I can make vegetarian or vegan I do,” Bolt said. A variety of salads, such as Caesar, garden, spinach and kale, are included on the menu. When the kale salad is ordered, Bolt will massage the leaves because the process makes the kale taste sweeter. Smoothies are made to order and an array of fruit is available. Bolt uses almond
milk or juice as a base for the smoothies. Oranges, grapefruits and pineapples are squeezed for fresh juices. Vegetables, such as carrots, celery, cucumber, beets and spinach are put through the juicer for the drinks, which are also prepared to order. Some combinations have been suggested. Customers can add wheat grass, hemp protein, peanut butter (PB2) or chia seed to their juices. “This is the way I’ve eaten for years. So many people say they’d love to eat [healthier], now they can come here and get home-cooked, fresh food,” she said. “I like my food to be good and super fresh. I’m not going to serve anything I wouldn’t have in my home.” Diet and regular Snow Balls frozen treats are available. Bolt can also make the ices with agave nectar. Bolt said she can accom-
modate customers with dietary needs and restrictions and food allergies. She is very conscious not to cross contaminate. She has color-coded cutlery and kitchenware. She even runs things through the dish washer in a special order. Anything with a meat product is washed last. Several tables are set up inside the deli for customers. Once the weather gets warmer, outside seating will be available. Daily specials can be found on The Greenhouse Facebook page. The eatery is open 8 a.m to 5 p.m. daily. The Greenhouse will stay open until 8 p.m. starting Memorial Day weekend. Catering is also available. Delivery will be offered in a few weeks. The Greenhouse will be open year-round. Bolt has applied for a carryout beer and wine license and plans to offer basic beer and wine, craft brews and gluten free options.

American Cancer Society’s annual overnight event supports all walks of life: those who have lost, those who are battling and those who have conquered
LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is an annual all-night walk and gathering that brings together hundreds — if not thousands — of people to celebrate survivorship, remember loved ones who lost their battle with cancer and show support to those currently fighting the disease. The 2013 North Worcester County Relay For Life is scheduled to take place this evening, May 10, at Frontier Town Campground, located off Route 611 in West Ocean City. “First and foremost, it’s a fundraiser. The funding provides education, advocacy, research and patient services in our community,” said co-chairwoman Dawn Hodge. “It’s also a time for teams to celebrate their fundraising efforts.” The theme for the all-night party is “Heroes of Hope … We Save Lives … Every Cancer, Every Community, Every Day.” Each team, which typically includes between eight and 15 people, will have its own campsite that members can decorate to represent the theme.

Bicyclists take on 140 miles in two days for MoveableFeast LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 10, 2013) The annual Ride for the Feast — a two-day, 140-mile biking event through Maryland — will begin in Ocean City again this year. Bicyclists helping to raise money for Moveable Feast, a nonprofit organization that provides free, nutritious meals to people living with HIV/ AIDS or breast cancer, will start their weekend journey in the resort and head toward Baltimore. This is the third consecutive year the ride will kick off in Ocean City. “The ride is hard, but we make it fun and we have a good time,” said Ted Blankenship, director of development for Moveable Feast. As a Maryland-based organization, Moveable Feast serves clients in Baltimore and its five surrounding counties, as well as areas along the Eastern Shore, including Ocean City. The 140 miles represent the farthest distance the organization travels to serve its clients. Riders are asked to raise a minimum of $1,300, which is the cost of feeding one client for a full year. One hundred percent of what riders contribute will go directly to client services. A record 200 riders participated in 2012, helping to raise $500,000 for the organization. The participation record has been broken this year as 235 riders signed up for the 11th annual ride, set for Saturday. Of that number, 150 riders have participated before. “It’s grown every year. We’re very fortunate people support us so much,” Blankenship said. “People do it for Moveable See ORGANIZATION on Page 4B

(May 10, 2013) Somerset Street Plaza in downtown Ocean City will be bustling with activity this Saturday as the Ocean City Downtown Association hosts its ninth annual White Marlin Festival and Crab Soup Cookoff on the square. “It’s for the whole family. There’s something for everybody,” said event coordinator Lisa Aydelotte. “It’s a fun-filled day.” The event continues to grow each year. In 2012, approximately 400 guests paid to taste soups entered in the contest and another 200 or so enjoyed the free festival offerings. “In three hours, it’s amazing to see how many people do come out to participate and support the Downtown Association,” Aydelotte said. “Every year it keeps getting bigger and better.” More than a dozen local chefs will serve gallons of their specialty crabbased concoctions, such as Marylandstyle, gumbo, cream blends and bisques, to visitors during the three-hour Crab Soup Cookoff. The 13 businesses set to participate are American Legion Post 166, Casino at Ocean Downs, Eagle’s Landing, Fager’s Island, Frontier Town Lazy River Saloon, Hall’s Family Restaurant, Mother’s Can-

Feast. They love our mission and they love the work we do.” Blankenship said the goal this year is to raise $500,000. As of Tuesday, the amount of donations totaled more than 446,000, according to the event Web site, www.rideforthefeast.org. “When it’s all done, we expect to go over $500,000,” Blankenship said. “We’re just excited and we’re hoping for good weather.” Riders, led by a police escort, will leave at 7:30 a.m. Saturday from Third Street and the Boardwalk, head across the Route 50 bridge and out of Ocean City. They will travel 100 miles, cycling along the country roads of the Eastern Shore and ending at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills. Riders will have maps with turn-by-turn directions and the roads are also marked with arrows to help lead the way. Pit stops with food, beverages, medical assistance and bike technical support will be located every 15-20 miles. On Sunday morning, the group will be bused across the Bay Bridge before they get on their bikes again for a 40-mile ride from Annapolis back to Moveable Feast’s headquarters in downtown Baltimore. There, a celebration and an awards ceremony will take place. In 2012, Moveable Feast delivered 574,445 meals to 978 sick neighbors in

All of the meals, which cater to clients’ dietary needs, are prepared fresh in the organization’s kitchen.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you might prefer moving forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans. You could find a good reason to make a change at this time. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but it’s a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it down could help get your energy levels up.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Insist on full disclosure by all parties before agreeing to be part of a “great deal.” What you learn should help you decide whether to go with it or not. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your decision to protect the secret that was entrusted to you might irk some people. But it also wins you the admiration of those who value trust and loyalty. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Creative activities take on a practical approach as you realize you might be able to market your work. Ask for advice from someone experienced in this area. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) If you’re suddenly a bit unsure about your decision, ask trusted colleagues and/or friends or family members for suggestions that could help resolve your doubts. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A workplace situation could get stormy. But stay on course until there’s a solution that meets with everyone’s approval, and things can finally calm down. BORN THIS WEEK: You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel.

KENTUCKY DERBY FUNDRAISER More than 100 tickets were purchased for the inaugural Kentucky Derby fundraiser for Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation Beach Respite Housing Program at Hooper’s Crabhouse, located at the foot of the Route 50 bridge in West Ocean City, last Saturday. Televisions were set up for the event, which took place in a tent in Hooper’s parking lot, for guests to watch the 139th annual Kentucky Derby and pick the winning horse for the chance to take home prizes. An assortment of food was provided by Hooper’s and Sweet Disposition donated desserts. In addition, there was music, a trivia competition, 50/50 raffle and contests for the best hats. For the children, there were games, crafts and a magic show. Children also had the opportunity to pet and feed two horses. “It did well for the first time. Everybody had a blast,” said Wayne Littleton, coordinator for the Believe in Tomorrow Children Foundation Beach Respite Housing Program. “I think we’ll make it an annual event.” The program provides critically ill children and their families a much-needed getaway to the beach from the everyday stresses of a child’s medical illness.The resort facilities include a four-unit apartment building on 66th Street; a house on the bay at 28th Street — the first respite house in the country to focus on the needs of military pediatrics — and a townhouse in Fenwick Island, Del.

tina, Phillips, Pickles Pub, Pour House, Quickies, Seacrets and The Shrimp Boat. “This year there was a lot of interest [from restaurants],” Aydelotte said. “I’m very pleased.” From noon to 3 p.m., visitors may sample the crab soups and choose their favorite. Tasters can vote in two soup categories: white and red. In 2012, Mother’s Cantina took top honors in the white crab soup division, and Hall’s won the red category. This is the third year Mother’s Cantina has competed. The cream of crab soup they will offer at the festival is the same served in the restaurant, said Neely James, owner of the restaurant with her husband, Ryan. “Ryan and I are passionate about using fresh, local ingredients, which we feel is what takes our food flavors to the next level. We are also members of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources True Blue Program, which means our customers know they’re getting delicious local Maryland crab in all of the crab dishes we serve,” she said. “We participate in the Crab Soup Cookoff because the proceeds directly benefit the Downtown Association in their efforts to improve the quality of life for our community.” Joe Hall, owner of Hall’s Family Restaurant, has entered a soup in the

contest since the event’s inception. It is the same soup offered at the restaurant. “What sets our soup apart from the rest is the amount of different ingredients we use. The mixture of veggies, okra, sweet shoepeg corn, carrots and celery, then comes the spices — Old Bay, of course, white wine, thyme, garlic and much more,” Hall said. “It makes a party in your mouth. Each time you take a bite, you can pick up on another flavor. It’s a symphony of flavors.” Hall’s has placed six times, taking first
in the red soup division twice. “My dad is a founding member of the Downtown Association so anything that helps downtown we are going to be part of it,” Hall said. The festival is free to attend; however, the cost to sample the soups is $12. The chefs who have the top three recipes in each category will receive a crystal award. In addition to the Cookoff, the Downtown Association fundraiser will feature face painting, crafts, Sherman the Shore-
bird, Capt. Phil the Crab and music by DJ Bigler. The band Sweet Harmony will also perform. T-shirts, beer, soda and water will be available for purchase. Several organizations will have exhibits on display, including the Ocean City Beach Patrol, Life-Saving Station Museum, Coast Guard, Town Cats, Downtown Association, Play It Safe, Susan G. Komen and the Children’s Miracle Network of Johns Hopkins Hospital. For more information, call 410-2891413, or Aydelotte at 410-262-5911 or visit www.downtownassociation.net.

Ocean City Center for the Arts
May full of activities at art center (May 10, 2013) There’s much happening at the Ocean City Center for the Arts on 94th Street. As word of the new, much larger facility spreads throughout the area, its schedule of classes, exhibits and other events continues to grow. The Center for the Arts, home to the Art League of Ocean City, kicked off May with a reception for the judged exhibition, “Landscapes.” This exhibit of paintings and photography is sponsored by the American Legion. Featured in the galleria this month is the “Fiber Arts, Decorative and Wearable” exhibit. Artists contributing to this exhibit include Betsy Harrison with batiks, weaving by Deborah Lewish Idema, fire talk quilts by Barbara Warden and fiber/basketry by Heidi Weitzel. In addition, the members’ spotlight gallery will showcase Jim Adcock, who is known for his paintings of local scenes and iconic images. The OC Center for the Arts features a new artist in residence each month. Showcased this month is fiber artist Monika Lilley. Her work includes felting and knitted items, both wearable and decorative. In addition to showcasing her own work, Lilley will teach a series of fiber classes during the month. The classes are available to both adults and kids. No experience is necessary and all
materials will be supplied. “Through everything, my goal is for children and adults to enjoy an amazing art while taking part in continuing a legacy,” she said. “It’s more than just creating something beautiful and unique. It’s a way to continue our world’s traditions.” Those who visit the OC Center for the Arts this month will have an opportunity to view “Notice Deficit-Listening to the World Around You,” a collection of photographs by University of Maryland Easter Shore students Lauren Ritter and Mia Blend. There are also the ongoing artist displays with handmade pottery by Erik Hertz, original watercolor paintings by Dorothy Harrison Braun and fine art paintings by Faith Lord. Also, the Art League will continue to accept bids for “Atlantic Light,” an original oil painting by Peter Cosby. The painting, valued at $6,000, was donated to help raise funds for the ALOC scholarship program. The minimum bid is $2,500 with minimum increments of $100. The auction will close at 4 p.m. on May 31. The Ocean City Center for the Arts, located at 502 94th St., is open daily with gallery hours 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on classes or events, visit www.artleagueofoceancity.org or call 410-524-9433.

Cancer survivors to be recognized with first lap,reception after Continued from Page 1B
bers of each team will take turns walking laps around the campground track. Hundreds of walkers will participate and help to raise money for cancer research, awareness, advocacy, patient services and educational programs in the area. In 2012, 51 teams (approximately 400 people), including 108 survivors, took part in the race, helping to raise $140,000 (net) for the organization. During the past 15 years, North Worcester Countyâ€™s Relay has donated approximately $1.6 million to the American Cancer Society. The 2013 Relay for Life will officially begin with an opening ceremony at 6 p.m. Cancer survivors will walk the cere-
monial first lap of the night, the Survivorsâ€™ Lap. A reception for cancer survivors will follow. Survivors will be joined by their caregivers and supporters for the second lap of the evening. â€œHeroes of Hopeâ€? will be the third lap. Team captains will walk the fourth lap. In honor of Motherâ€™s Day, the fifth lap of the night will be dedicated to moms. Themes for some of the other laps include â€œRoad to Recoveryâ€? (a race around the track in a â€œboxâ€? car), â€œMan to Man Lapâ€? (prostate cancer awareness), â€œLook Good Feel Better Lap (wear a wig and dress),â€? â€œFruit & Fiber Lap,â€? â€œNurses Pink Lapâ€? (wear pink and breast cancer awareness attire), â€œSLIP, SLAP, SLOP Wrap Lapâ€? (lifeguard relay, pass the noodle) and â€œJingle Bell Lap.â€?
The final walk around the track will be the â€œHappy Birthday Lapâ€? because the American Cancer Society believes a world with less cancer is a world with more birthdays. Other activities scheduled throughout the night include a silent auction, scavenger hunt, talent show, BINGO, Zumba and Minute To Win It games. Many of the teams will also hold fundraisers throughout the evening. The Luminary Ceremony of Remembrance will take place at 8:15 p.m. Luminaria, which will line the track illuminating the night, will be available to purchase from 4-7:30 p.m. Bags cost $10, and tiki torches $25. Participants are invited to light candles in memory of, or in honor of, a loved one.
The â€œFight Back Ceremonyâ€? will follow at 8:45 p.m., led by Pastor Tina Whaley of Bates United Methodist Church in Snow Hill. The closing ceremonies will take place at 6 a.m. Saturday morning. For more information, contact Jill Elliott or Dawn Hodge at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or 410-4308131, 443-497-1198 or visit www.relayforlife.org/northworcester.

Assateague Coastal Trust tohold annual plant sale Saturday (May 10, 2013) Assateague Coastal Trust will present its 14th annual Native and Heirloom Plant Festival this Saturday, May 11, at the ACT office in Berlin. Holding the festival the day before Mother’s Day provides customers with the opportunity to honor Mom with a beautiful gift that keeps on giving. The festival, which opens at 8 a.m., will be held in the lot next to ACT’s office, located at 9931 Old Ocean City Blvd. — just steps from North Main Street. There will be a wide variety of native perennial plants for sale, as well as herbs and heirloom tomatoes. Native or indigenous plants are those that naturally occur in coastal and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Using native plants will: n Increase the chances that the plants will thrive in your yard, as they are suited to our soils. n Require less watering than non-natives, and make better use of rainwater. n Benefit local and migratory wildlife that use native plant species for food, cover, and rearing young. In addition to the plant sale, local craftspeople will exhibit and sell their Mom-friendly artwork. And Coast Kids will have a booth at the festival, where folks may purchase several plants or herbs to put into a pot, add a bow and a clever coastal decoration made by the kids, to take home to Mom. For more information, call ACT at 410-629-1538 or visit www.ActForBays.org.

Mother’s Day brings back memories of daughter’s treasured gift FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Writer will never forget meeting with president DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (May 10, 2013) Let us wind back the hands of time. I must warn you this might be quite a workout. The year is 1988 and a summation of events helps refresh one’s memory. The summer Olympics are being held in Seoul, South Korea. Australia celebrates its bicentennial. A Libyan terrorist bomb explodes on Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 on board and 11 on the ground. Finally, the United States shuttle program resumes 2 1/2 years
after the Challenger disaster. The year of 1988 was also the last full year President Ronald Reagan was in office. I admired him tremendously and hoped someday to meet him. At that time, I was living with my parents in Washington, D.C. Life was good and was about to get better. Mother was taking me to the White House for a glorious Christmas party, where I would meet and have my picture taken with the President and First Lady. Mother prepped me for the legendary meeting — an appointee whispers your name into the president’s ear so he can address you by name; you will only have a few seconds for this “keep-
sake moment.” A much-needed glass of chardonnay was on the menu as I meticulously primped and prepped for the grand introduction. My make-up had to be flawless and my attire stunning for the red carpet reception. I knew I would make quite an impression on the famous couple. As I proudly came down the steps and anticipated accolades of bravo from my parents, my mother emphatically declared that I was not going to the White House wearing that particular “upper garment.” Pleading my cause turned out to be fruitless. I did the only thing a devastated daughter could do — I stormed up the stairs crying hysterically and proclaimed that I was not attending the event. To my surprise, my father laughed. I guess when you are the only
male in a house of females, you get used to the boiling pot of emotions. Eventually mother came upstairs in a reduced mode and handed me a scarf. Drape this around your shoulders and your outfit will be appropriate. World War III was averted. Mother was able to obtain a pass that allowed us to park at the White House. Police armed with massive ammunition and vicious dogs are a terrifying experience; every inch of the car is searched thoroughly. Once it was determined that my mother and I were not a threat to national security, we were allowed to enter the White House. Marines in white gloves guided us to the entrance of the ballroom. The winter wonderland glittered in spectacular décor; speechless takes on new meaning. See GRILLING on Page 15B

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Grilling vegetables adds extra kick to simple salsa recipe Continued from Page 14B
Food fit for a king is an understatement. Hollywood move over, entertaining has mushroomed beyond my wildest dreams. Star struck and starved, I indulged to the fullest degree. All of a sudden, mother informed me it was time to stand in line to meet the President and First Lady. I was surprised by how quickly the procession of people was moving. I started to hyperventilate and standing on my 5-inch heels was becoming a major feat. “Please, God, do not let me upchuck when I have my moment of fame,” I thought. Everything was happening so fast. The next thing I knew, my mother was in the spotlight and all I saw were flashes from the cameras. Then, from nowhere, a hand gently nudged me forward. I do not recollect the minute details, but I do remember grabbing President Reagan’s hand and shaking it like there was no tomorrow. Eight years of awe were condensed in 10 seconds. Then the unthinkable happened — President Reagan motioned for the pageantry to stop. There I was, chatting with the President and First Lady; it was very clear they were touched by my sincere veneration. Raw emotions cannot be displayed unless they are from the heart. As I joined my mother, I could see the reflection of joy in her eyes. Mom, thank you so much for that opportunity. I will never forget that day. Mothers and daughters have a very special bond that is eternal. I love you and hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day. Mother loves salsa. Taking a simple dish and elevating it to new heights is the sign of an innovative chef. Simply grill red onions, garlic, jalapenos, yellow peppers and Roma tomatoes. Cool vegetables on a cooling rack underlined with paper towels. The liquid from the vegetables will diminish the flavor of the dish. Chop vegetables in various sizes, this adds to the texture of the salsa. Add limejuice, a splash of extravirgin olive oil, fresh cilantro, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Carefully toss ingredients and serve with tortilla chips. Secret Ingredient: Motherhood. “Mothers hold their children’s hand for a short while, but their hearts forever” … Unknown.
Worcester museums to take part in worldwide celebration (May 10, 2013) On Saturday, May 18, the museums of Worcester County will join thousands of museums around the world in celebrating International Museum Day, an opportunity to encourage awareness of the roles museums play in their communities. The worldwide effort was first organized in 1977, by the International Council of Museums. Last year, 32,000 museums in 129 countries participated in International Museum Day. The theme for 2013 is “Museums: memory + creativity = social change.” “Reconciling their traditional mission of preservation with cultivation of the creativity necessary for renewal and visitor growth is the evolution that museums are striving for,” said ICOM General Director Julien Anfruns, “with the firm conviction that their presence and their actions can change society in a constructive manner.” Museums in Worcester County will be open on May 18, and some will be offering free admission or special activities. These include: n Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, Ocean City: Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free admission and appearance by Choo Choo Blue from the B&O Railroad Museum.

Beach Boys tickets available now (May 10, 2013) Tickets for the Beach Boys, who will perform in Ocean City on Saturday, Sept. 21, are now on sale. The concert will be part of the resort’s annual Sunfest event, slated for Sept. 19-22, at the inlet parking lot. Tickets range from $30-$59. Since their first song debuted in 1961, the Beach Boys have continued to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that has defined their explosive 50-year career. And now in 2013, their 2003 Capitol Records release, “Sounds of Summer,” and its 2007
companion, “The Warmth of the Sun,” mark a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that has again rocked the world. The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth. To them, the beach isn’t just a place where the surf comes to play; it’s where life is renewed and made whole again. Tickets are on sale at the Convention Center Box Office on 40th St. Box office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-551-7328.
