RELAY FOR LIFE Cancer survivor Eileen Dudley speaks during the 2014 North Worcester County Relay For Life opening ceremony, May 9, at Frontier Town Campground in West Ocean City. The theme for the all-night party was “Life is Good.” The overnight event drew 46 teams (approximately 311 participants, which included about 100 survivors) and, so far, has brought in approximately $138,000 for the American Cancer Society. Participants have until Aug. 31 to submit their final donations. Several fundraising events are in the works over the next few months to raise additional funds.

Tourism survey tests Springfest Demographics show older crowd; mayor wants further studies all around resort

Residential & Commercial 24/7 Emergency Service

COMPLETE HVAC SYSTEMS STARTING AT

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) A trial run of the city’s new market survey at Springfest earlier this month has confirmed the survey’s concept - at least by proving what most already know about the event’s demographic. City Tourism Director Donna Abbot told the Tourism Commission this week that a test of the city’s automated questionnaire – which visitors fill out on an iPad touch screen – had netted almost 100 participants at

Springfest.. “We wanted to see if the program worked, and if people would respond,” said Council Secretary and Tourism Commission Chair Mary Knight. Although it appeared that many participants did not respond to every question, the automated survey app worked well, Abbott said, and provided a helpful graph for each of the 11 questions asked as well as a map of respondents’ ZIP codes. Responses skewed heavily toward an older demographic, who indicated that they visited frequently and were likely either locals or Baltimore-area residents who own a second home in the resort.

“This makes sense because we know we draw in a big local crowd,” said Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Melanie Pursel. ZIP code results indicated the greatest density of visitors originating either on the Eastern Shore, or in the Baltimore metro region. Of the 72 respondents who provided their age, 58 were over 45 years old, and 23 of these were over 60. The question asking how many times visitors had been in Ocean City over the past five years provided the most dramatic result, with 48 of 73 respondents selecting 20 or more times. Further, 30 of 73 answered six See SURVEY Page 6

SUMMER PRE-SEASON SALE

WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) City Council is poised to pass emergency measures against what the Ocean City Police Department has identified as the summer’s biggest scourges – laser pointers, “assisted opening” knives, and people who refuse to give you their date of birth. On Tuesday, Council voted to move the three proposals to an ordinance reading at the coming Monday night general session. With the Mayor’s consent, and another favorable vote of council, those ordinances could be passed as emergency measures, effective immediately. Most critically, the OCPD is proposing to amend the article of the city’s code which prohibits “any person to display, possess, sell, barter, offer to sell, distribute, manufacture, give away, transfer, or dispose of” a number of items that are considered hazardous by the city but not addressed in Maryland’s state-level restrictions. Added to this list would be socalled “assisted opening” knives – folding knives in which the user opens the knife by articulating a stud or spur attached to the blade. Once the blade is partially unfolded, a spring or tension mechanism releases the blade to full extension and locks it into position, making the knife easier to open with one hand. “There’s really no need for this particular item…especially the sale of the same on the Boardwalk,” said OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro. According to police, a number of novelty stores on the Boardwalk have begun selling assisted-opening knives. Lt. Mark Pacini, the department’s patrol commander for the downtown area, showed the council See CITY Page 5

UMES, 4-H join to promote sciences By Josh Davis Staff Writer WORCESTER COUNTY– The University of Maryland Eastern Shore recently launched a 4-H Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics initiative that could bring increased education opportunities to children in the county. The UMES STEM team established offices in Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties with faculty extension assistants or STEM educators stationed in each location. “Engaging more young people within the STEM fields is a national priority and it is a priority of the University of Maryland Extension and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. We are, therefore, very excited about having a team that’s reserved for making STEM its priority,” Dr. Henry Brooks, UME-UMES Extension administrator, said in a statement. Associate agent Jocelyn Koller will provide coordination and leadership to the team. “We’re targeting ages 5-18,” said Koller. “The goals of the program are to enhance and expand our current 4H offering in the tri-county area; we already had 4-H educators that were teaching STEM, but now there’s a team that’s reserved for making STEM a priority.”

EDC seeks loans to spur business growth Money would aid creation of jobs by helping new operations to get started

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Additional funds could soon be available for Worcester County businesses. Economic Development Director Bill Badger is applying for funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Intermediary Relending Program. If any funds are awarded, they will be placed into the Worcester County Revolving Loan Fund, managed by Maryland Capital Enterprises, a private non-profit in Salisbury. Funds would be used to spur new business growth and to assist business owners with expanding their businesses

in the county. The goal is to increase the county’s tax base and to create jobs. The loans, which would range from $25,000 to $150,000, could be used for commercial real estate acquisition, building improvements, equipment purchases, leasehold improvements, start-up costs and refinancing of existing debt if retaining or creating new jobs. They could also be used for the transfer of ownership if the loan would keep the business from closing, to prevent the loss of jobs and working capital. Interest rates, which range from 3 percent and 5 percent, will vary due to market conditions. The maximum loan term will be 10 years. If the funds are granted to the county, Badger and the Department of Economic Development’s deputy director, Meredith Mears, will begin

a marketing program, including the use of social media, to raise awareness of the loans. Business owners will be able to obtain applications for the loans at www.choseworcester.org or by e-mail at chooseworcester@co.worcester.md.us. In addition to filling out the application, people who want a loan must supply a business plan, personal and company income tax returns for the past two years and a personal financial statement. It is anticipated that the committee reviewing the applications will make a decision about the requested loan within 30 days after receiving the required information. The committee will give priority to those businesses providing additional jobs or providing a needed product or service generating additional tax revenues.

NATIONAL

Loans are generally not given for cosmetic work. Badger anticipates that approximately 10 loans will be given with the Intermediate Relending Program and that approximately 50 new jobs will be created. The Department of Economic Development, in partnership with the Anne Arundel County Economic Development Department, continues to offer revolving loans ranging from $25,000 to $500,000 under the Video Lottery Terminal – Small, Minority and WomenOwned Business Loan Program. Loans from the Department of Agriculture’s loan program would be in addition to the VOLT loans already offered by the county department. “I get calls every day for VOLT funds,” Badger said. “This is another way we can service a need.”

City to ban laser pointers, assisted knives Continued from Page 1 a number of blades he had personally purchased. “We’re seeing an increase in weapons in our day-to-day dealings with citizens in the community,” Buzzuro said. “These weapons are showing up on people, and in vehicles.” The number of weapons arrests in 2012 spiked to 112 from just 50 in 2011, and 38 in 2007. Last year saw 109 arrests, 33 of them in June alone. Many of the knives sold on the Boardwalk are clearly intended as showpieces for unruly youth. However, many common types of pocketknives also feature assisted opening blades, which do have legitimate uses in outdoor and rescue work. The proposed ordinance contains exceptions for OCPD personnel as well as on-duty firemen and EMS

providers. Although this could cause concern for pocketknife-equipped visitors, enforcement will likely be targeted more at disreputable Boardwalk stores and less at law-abiding citizens. “We believe it’s just best served to not have them available in town,” Buzzuro said. As part of the city’s code which qualifies for misdemeanor violations, penalties for assisted-opening knives can be up to $500 in fines or up to three months imprisonment. “I think it’s long overdue,” said Councilman and Police Commission Chair Doug Cymek. “It’s a public safety issue.” Further, Buzzuro and Pacini requested an amendment that will require anyone being cited for a

municipal violation to provide their date of birth. Previously, only name and address were mandated under the city’s provisions of code enforcement. Refusal to give proper identification carries a fine of $1,000 and/or 90 days’ imprisonment. “Anybody who works in the law enforcement field knows you really need to have the date of birth to indentify anyone in a database,” Pacini said. “You might be able to if they’re in Maryland, but not everyone here is from this state. “It will help us in following up with people who don’t pay fines and following up with collection agencies.” Although it was not formally up for discussion, Cymek also suggested that the opportunity be taken for the police to address laser pointers.

“We have had a problem,” Buzzuro said, particularly with complaints from planes and helicopters of lasers being projected into cockpits. Councilman Brent Ashley said he knew of a Boardwalk business owner who required medical attention after being harassed by youth with laser pointers. “We’ve had city employees as well, a police officer and a tram driver that I’m aware of,” Cymek said. “It’s time for them to go.” Ashley motioned that a ban on the sale of laser pointers, although not necessarily their possession, be introduced Monday as well. Mayor Rick Meehan concurred that he would sign the ordinances as emergency measures if the council wished. “Monday night, they will be effective,” Cymek said.

Greyhound Bus OC service to continue for six months By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Although it’s longterm fate is still in the air, Greyhound will be continuing direct service to Ocean City at least through the fall, instead of farming it out to Shore Transit as previously expected. “For the next six months, we will be continuing service as normal,” Greyhound spokeswoman Lanesha Gipson said this week. “After the six months, we are looking to partner with a third party.” City Public Works Director Hal Adkins confirmed that an extension of Greyhound’s agreement with the city has been signed, securing the bus line’s rights to the West Ocean City Park-and-Ride terminal through October. Last month, Adkins had informed City Council that that the agreement with Greyhound to use the city-owned facility as a ticketing and boarding station had expired. That agreement had been signed in 2009 and was valid through September 2013, but Adkins said Greyhound had become unresponsive this past fall after the contract ended. The city subsequently informed Greyhound that it would otherwise remove the signs, re-stripe the staging areas as regular parking spaces, and

no longer grant access unless payment and a signed agreement was reached by the first of this month. Greyhound had detailed a plan to the city whereby it would contract with Shore Transit, the state-backed transit service organized by the TriCounty Council in Salisbury, to connect passengers from the Salisbury terminal to Ocean City instead of running Greyhound buses to the resort directly. No formal agreement was ever presented to this effect, however, and Adkins said the city was kept out of the loop on the matter. “Greyhound had asked us about doing it, but my understanding is that they’re no longer going in that direction,” said Shore Transit Director Brad Bellacicco. “We continue to originate and terminate their passengers here [in Salisbury].” The extension will allow Greyhound to operate through October 31, 2014, for a fee of $22,871. The city budget projects $13,563 to staff and maintain the Park-and-Ride terminal, netting a profit of around $9,000. The city offered Greyhound the contract to use the Park-and-Ride after the company abandoned its dilapidated bus terminal at Second Street and Philadelphia Avenue, which is now a parking lot.

POLICE/COURTS

Alleged burglars

Two Brooklyn, Md., residents were charged with first-, third- and fourthdegree burglary on May 12 after allegedly burglarizing a West Ocean City house. A Worcester County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to Riggin Ridge Road at about 1:45 p.m. after an anonymous caller reported two suspicious people, a man and a woman, walking around the area and looking in windows. As the deputy arrived on the scene and walked towards the residence, a man came from behind the residence and the deputy immediately detained him.  While speaking with the man, a woman exited the front door of the residence, ran down the front steps and tried to run behind the residence. She was also detained.  An entrance door to the residence had been forced open.  

The two were identified as Joseph A Slabaugh, 35, and Branden Leigh Sandifer, 34. In addition to the burglary charges, Sandifer was charged with making a false statement to a law enforcement officer.  They were being held at the Worcester County Jail on $15,000 bond.

Child struck

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a motor vehicle crash that occurred on Synepuxent Road near Berlin on Sunday night. A 2-year-old boy was playing in his yard and entered Synepuxent Road east of Seahawk Road and was struck by a vehicle.  The driver of the vehicle drove the child and his mother to the hospital for treatment. The child was subsequently transported to Johns Hopkins for further

treatment.  The driver of the vehicle, Thomas Purnell Jr. 26, of Berlin, was cited for driving on an expired license and driving without insurance. Alcohol is not a factor in this collision.

Overturned vehicle

A 43-year-old Newark woman was charged May 11 with driving under the influence of alcohol after her vehicle overturned twice after striking a culvert on Route 113 south of Georgetown Road at about 9:20 a.m. Maryland State Police learned two children, ages 8 and 14, were at Deborah Root’s residence so a trooper went to the house to check on their welfare. The Worcester County Department of Social Services also responded. Paramedics took Root to Peninsula Regional Medical Center to be treated for her injuries. When troopers went to the medical center, they detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on Root and charged her with the driving offense.

Heroin distribution

Louis Joseph Rychwalski III, 20, of Ocean City was charged May 9 with possession of heroin and possession on heroin with the intent to distribute it. A member of the Ocean City Police Department’s Narcotics Unit obtained a search and seizure warrant that day

On April 17, members of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, Office of the State’s Attorney for Worcester County and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office executed a search and seizure warrant at an address on Pin Oak Drive in Berlin. The search warrant was the result of several months of prior investigation that revealed that someone inside of the residence was sharing and downloading pictures and videos of child pornography. Once inside the residence, investigators discovered numerous computers and other related items. They determined Jose Cano Lopez was the sole user of these items. An arrest warrant was obtained for Jose Cano Lopez and was served on May 12. Lopez was charged with six counts of promoting and distributing child pornography, six counts of possession of child pornography and one count of possession and distribution of obscene matter. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner who placed a $50,000 bond on Lopez. Lopez subsequently posted the bond and was released. The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office is a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that is dedicated to protecting and preventing the abuse and exploitation of children.

Fatal collision

The Ocean Pines woman who was injured April 29 in a motor vehicle collision died of her injuries May 2. Virginia Balascio was turning onto Route 575 from Route 113 near Showell in a 2010 Honda when she failed to yield the right of way and struck a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Aubrie Baker of Berlin at about 2:35 p.m. Balascio was flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Baker refused medical treatment at the site. Deputies of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office assisted Maryland State Police.

Heroin possession

Two Ocean City residents were charged April 30 with possession of heroin. Ocean City police went to their Tunnel Avenue apartment looking for a wanted person. Looking through the front window, an officer saw a woman, later identified as Yashodha Lama, 25, using scissors to cut foil and sheets of plastic. Lama was on a couch with a man later identified as Suraj Joshi, 26. Another officer knocked and identified himself as a police officer. In response, Lama and Joshi started stuffing items under the couch cushions. Then they ran to the back of the apartment. After the officer knocked and identified himself as a police officer for a third time, Lama and Joshi allowed him to enter. The wanted person was not there, but Lama and Joshi admitted flushing heroin down the toilet. A consent search revealed several wax paper bags. Most were empty. Officers also found several other bags and one of them contained seven blue wax paper bags and each of those contained heroin. The wax paper bags were stamped with the word, Polo. According to Ocean City police, a Delaware police officer recently tried to conduct chemical field tests on suspected heroin on wax paper with the same stamp and when he did, the heroin had a chemical reaction that caused an explosion and an acid burn to the officer. Joshi reportedly told police he was a heroin addict. Both said Lama did not use heroin.

Commission nixes bayside carriage route

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) The sound of honking horns has finally won out over that of clip-clopping hooves. Despite some interest in the proposal, the city’s Police Commission has turned down an ongoing request from carriage ride operator Randy Davis to run a route this summer that would see his horses traversing the island via Second Street. “I’d suggest you continue to work on finding a different route,” said Mayor Rick Meehan, the only commission member who seemed to fully support the idea. “I’d like to see us give it a try,” Meehan said. “Even if it’s not ideal for the department…so that you have an opportunity to see what it does.” Davis’ proposal for summertime carriage rides would have passengers board at the east end of Second Street, next to the Boardwalk between the Ocean Gallery and Plim Plaza. The Harrison Group has offered to provide for a staging area, Davis said. The carriage would then proceed across Second Street, using the traffic signals at Baltimore and Philadelphia Avenues, then crossing St. Louis Avenue and turning north on Chicago Avenue. The carriage would then go the length of the bayside boardwalk area, turning at Fourth Street to head

back down St. Louis and back across Second Street. The rides would run from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday evenings. “I’m trying to cut out the big nights

where traffic is always a problem,” Davis said. “It’s intended as a sunset carriage ride…people want to go see something other than hotels and condos.” However, crossing major thor-

atic from a historical perspective,” said OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro. Over the past eight years, roughly 50 collisions have happened at each intersection – a significant number but, as Meehan pointed out, one not out of line with any other junction in the resort. The OCPD responded to 1,536 collisions last year. “You and your carriage are the ones who are going to suffer significant damage in that scenario,” said Commission Chair Doug Cymek. “[Davis’] safety record is excellent,” Meehan countered. “This is someone who’s vested in this particular business…there’s nobody he’s more concerned about than his horses.” Still, Councilman Dennis Dare noted, the OCPD would desire to closely monitor the traffic situation during the early stages of Davis’ operation, which would likely take place in June during a time in which the OCPD already has its hands full. “It’s one more thing that’s taking them away from everything else,” Dare said. “I just don’t like the route.” Interestingly enough, Maryland traffic code allows for horse-drawn vehicles on any public road. The only

reason Davis requires permission from the city is because he would be soliciting and conducting business on public streets – if he were simply using the roads for individual transit, he would not be subject to such oversight. “We’re not stopping cars from crossing, and this is a vehicle just the same, only non-motorized,” Meehan said. Davis currently provides carriage rides on the Boardwalk during the off-season, which have been well-received by visitors and elected officials. Davis does not pay the town for the rights to offer the rides, nor does the town pay him for the amenity. With the success of the program, however, the city has expressed interest in taking bids for an income-producing carriage franchise in the near future, which could include additional routes. “We’re at the point where it should be a franchise like umbrellas and beach photos, and probably past the point where he should be paying amusement tax,” Dare said. But further to his point, Meehan said, “if we can establish that there’s an additional route and a revenue associated with it, it makes the franchise that much stronger.”

Improving safety a priority By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Despite the speedy connotation of the word “highway,” the State Highway Administration’s annual spring meeting with the city this week continued to grind away on a number of slowmoving initiatives. In the short-term, locals may notice the closure of roughly half of the fence openings on the Route 50 Bridge sidewalk, in response to concerns about fishermen crossing the road. The state will also be re-paving the north end of Coastal Highway over the 2014-2015 off-season. In the long-term, ongoing improvements for pedestrian safety – including a potential major reconfiguration of Coastal Highway – and the integration of LED lighting will likely have a larger impact on the resort area. Councilman Brent Ashley had suggested some weeks ago that changes be made to the fencing on the bridge to better direct fishermen, who often cross en masse with the tide. “I know I’ve had some close calls, especially at night,” Ashley said. “It’s just a matter of time.” However, Ashley and Mayor Rick Meehan seemed to disagree on whether the magnitude of the problem would actually be reduced. “The only thing is if they want to cross, they’re going to have to walk further,” Meehan said. “I don’t think you’re going to reduce the number of people crossing, you’re just going to make it harder for them.” But the closings, Ashley argued, will still reduce the number of points at which a motorist would have to be extra alert to avoid a collision with a wayward fisherman. Three of the six openings on each side are slated to be fenced off, according to SHA District Engineer Donnie Drewer. Drewer also reviewed a number of continued pedestrian safety improvements on Coastal Highway. Removal of the mid-block crossing depressions and wooden posts is nearly complete, he noted, and the new light and pedestrian crossing at 54th Street has been operating well for several weeks. The SHA has also started a long-term concept study for the renovation of Coastal Highway’s median, which could include additional landscaping and possibly fencing. “I’d suggest that we go with the landscaping unless there’s an area where it’s not effective, and a fence is needed, then we could go with that when

Home is where your

the time comes,” said Coucilman Dennis Dare. Assistant District Engineer Dallas Baker also told the council that a traffic study for the proposed “road diet” on Coastal Highway had come back with generally favorable results. If implemented, the program would reduce Coastal Highway by one lane and provide for wider sidewalks and a bike lane. The most likely accommodation would be to eliminate the dedicated bus lane, allowing for car traffic in the rightmost lane. “My vision was never to have a dedicated bus lane at the expense of reducing thru-traffic,” Dare said. “However it happens, I would like to see it more bicycle-friendly.” The meeting also touched on the double-edged sword of LED lighting, which Drewer said the SHA is phasing in on all of its new projects. “The old lights used to keep enough heat on the lens to keep the snow off,” Drewer said. “It was agreed that we would get somebody in here as quick as we could after we get our snow removal duties done.” The city has pushed to get LEDs installed for street lights on Coastal Highway for some time, given that they are both energy-friendly and brighter than incandescents for safety purposes. However, the city does not own the overhead lights on the highway, but rather rents them from Delmarva Power and Light. DP&L currently does not offer LEDs, and thus the city would have to purchase and install its own fixtures. This may still work out in the city’s favor, since it currently pays over $250,000 annually in fees to DP&L to light the highway – another bone of contention, given that the city is paying to light a state road. Maryland appears to have no set policy on the matter, but many municipalities do not pay to light state roads that pass through their jurisdiction. “I think we can lower that quarter-million dollars considerably with LEDs, and then fight over who pays the bill,” Dare said. The SHA-sponsored traffic safety and education campaign, which was effective last year in reducing pedestrian accidents after a rash of incidents in 2012, will continue. The cartoon crab lifeguard campaign is now being utilized in other areas around the state, Baker noted, after it became the pedestrian safety mascot for Ocean City last year. “You have to keep pressing the campaign,” Meehan said. “You can’t think you’re getting ahead of it, because you never really do.”

Suspended sentence given for guilty plea of possession By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) A 21-year-old Pennsylvania man received a five-year suspended sentence earlier this month after pleading guilty to conspiracy to possess heroin with the intent to distribute it. Douglas Blair Weyandt was arrested in Ocean City on Aug. 5, 2012, after being stopped because he was riding a motor scooter near North Division Street without a helmet. Police learned his Pennsylvania driver’s license was suspended and arrested him for driving without a license. A search after that arrest led to the discovery of 34 capsules of heroin, 41 bags of heroin and $16,190 in cash in his pockets. The capsules weighed 9.8 grams and the bags of heroin weight 12.7 grams. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill on May 1, Weyandt’s public defender, Kristina Watkowski said Weydandt was addicted to heroin, had stolen the money from his grandmother’s house and had come to Ocean City to live. On the day of his arrest, Weyandt told police he did not sell drugs, but had a serious heroin habit. “He went to college until his heroin addiction took over,” Watkowski said. He has been sober, Watkowski said, since Aug. 14, 2012.

“Because he’s been in jail since then,” Judge Thomas C. Groton III said. Weyandt had gone to Circuit Court in Snow Hill directly from the Pennsylvania jail, where he is serving a sentence of two-and-a-half to five years for a felony drug conviction. “I’m just sitting in prison doing nothing,” Weyandt said. “I’m just tired of living the life of drug addiction.” Judge Groton noted that Weyandt’s arrest in Ocean City had little impact on him because he had bonded out of jail after his arrest in Ocean City and nine or 10 days later, was arrested in his home state on a similar charge. “You did the same thing in Pennsylvania,” the judge told Weyandt. Judge Groton then sentenced Weyandt to five years in prison, but suspended all of that time. After his release from incarceration in Pennsylvania, Weyandt will be on supervised probation for five years and must pay a $500 fine. He must also get alcohol and drug counseling as directed by his probation agent. When Weyandt leaves prison in Pennsylvania, he will be on probation in both states. If he violates probation, he will violate it in both states and he could get sentences in both states. “Any incarceration I impose will be in addition to any incarceration in Pennsylvania,” Judge Groton said.

City keeps new ‘Trikke’ in regulatory limbo Police Commission gives muddled reception as rental vehicle proposed

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Although not altogether negative, the city gave a somewhat muddled reception this week to a new type of Boardwalk rental vehicle known as the “Trikke,” keeping the three-wheeled, electric-powered devices in legal purgatory until the city solicitor can weigh in. The city’s Police Commission heard the pitch this week from local entrepreneur Bryant Hungerford, who is a dealer for the vehicles’ manufacturer and rents them at similar venues in Florida. “It has a third wheel, which gives it

more stability than a Segway,” Hungerford said. “Since you’re standing up, it is substantially more visible than a banana bike and takes up less space than a surrey.” Although elected officials seemed to think the idea was feasible from a practical viewpoint, the Ocean City Police Department pressed that they had every reason to waylay Hungerford from a legal standpoint, given the discord between state, federal, and local classifications of the vehicle. “Someday, you may well see the Trikke defined in the Maryland Transportation Article, but at this point it is not,” said Lt. Scott Harner, the OCPD’s head of traffic enforcement. “Whatever you consider to be feasible and safe is what should matter,” Hungerford told the commission. “I’d

like to see it happen based on the practicality, rather than me making a legal case for it.” The Trikke is best described as a set of skis with three wheels and a steering handle. Two runners each have a wheel at the back, and are joined at the front with a third wheel, where a t-shaped grip is mounted. On the manual version of the vehicle, the rider stands on the runners and arcs their body from side to side to build momentum. But there is also an electric-powered version that one can simply stand on and go. The former was considered to be a bad idea by the commission, given the sweeping motion required and the cramped quarters of the Boardwalk during a summer morning. But Hungerford would only be renting out the electric version, which would have

power limiters restricting the vehicles to no more than nine miles per hour. “[The manual vehicles] are what I thought you wanted and I would’ve been opposed to that,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “But these seem much more reasonable.” Logistically, the only major concern was general congestion on the Boardwalk, given the popularity of bicycle rentals and all the permutations thereof, such as the reclined “banana” bikes and multi-person surreys. “We’ve reached the point where I think we’re saturated,” said Commission Chair Doug Cymek. “I’d like to know how many accidents are happening before we add something else to the mix.” “I don’t think it’s equitable to single out my vehicle,” Hungerford responded. “It would be the only vehicle eliminated due to congestion or quantity…even though it is clearly safer than the others.” Crucially, he noted, the Trikke features modern construction including high-powered disc brakes, giving it the ability to stop on a dime as demonstrated by a video Hungerford had made himself on the Boardwalk. Many surreys, on the other hand, need several feet to come to a complete halt. “I don’t think that it adds to [the See TRIKKE Page 17

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Trikkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vehicle gets mixed reviews ment purposes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The result of my conversations with the Motor Vehicle Administration is that [Trikkes] would be a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;motorized minibike,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Harner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This device is not defined as a pedestrian, like a Segway is, and thus still opens itself up to the prohibitions on motorized vehicles.â&#x20AC;? Similarly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and most crucially â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Trikke would not meet the letter of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definition for EPAMDs, which are allowed on the Boardwalk during the same hours as bicycles. To be considered as such, the device

must have â&#x20AC;&#x153;two non-tandem wheelsâ&#x20AC;? and be â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-balancing.â&#x20AC;? Thus, a city code amendment would be required regardless to allow the new vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have to have the City Solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement,â&#x20AC;? Cymek said. But before anyone debated the legal nitty-gritty further, Meehan said, the commission should make a determination based on the merits of the Trikke itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determine that first of all,â&#x20AC;? Meehan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to just see us test it out.â&#x20AC;?

There are only so many people and it just depends on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular right now.â&#x20AC;? Apart from trying to prove the Trikkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merits in practice, Hungerford also presented the commission with a legal argument that the vehicles should be permitted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least under federal guidelines. As Hungerford pointed out, federal statutes on disability recommend that so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;low-powered electric vehiclesâ&#x20AC;? be regulated in the same manner as bicycles. Hungerford provided a letter from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney General concurring that the devices qualified as such and should be regulated as per the federal statue. They would not need to be registered as motor vehicles with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. However, Harner said, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic law does not strictly define a device such as the Trikke, which would likely be classified as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;motorized minibikeâ&#x20AC;? for traffic purposes. Even if not required to have a license and registration, the vehicle would still not meet the qualifications for a bicycle or for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;electronic personal assistive mobility device,â&#x20AC;? or EPAMD. EPAMD is the definition under state traffic code for Segways, which are treated as pedestrians for enforce-

County reviews budget cuts, more to come Commissioners looking at $4 million in general fund operating expenditures

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) The Worcester County Commissioners reviewed cuts of more than $4 million in general fund operating expenditures for fiscal year 2015 as suggested by the budget review committee during Tuesday’s work session, but additional reviewing and cutting must be done. Budget revenues were estimated higher at $177.9 million from the original $176.3 million and requested expenditures of $184.7 million were cut to $180.4 million. The budget review committee, consisting of Chief Administrative Officer Harold Higgins, Budget Officer Kathy Whited, Finance Office Phil Thompson and Assistant Finance Officer Jennifer Swanton, recommended most of the cuts and commissioners added some cuts of their own. They started with estimated revenues of $176,399,189, which were revised upward to $177,981,133 and estimated expenditures of

$184,770,774, which were cut to $180,434,504. Additional revenues came from motor coach fees estimated at $25,000, increased state aid to fire companies at $41,247 and $2 million in funds from a bond premium. Some of the cuts recommended by the review committee were small. One such cut was $25 slashed from the Elections Office request of $75 for fire extinguishers. The committee cut it to $50. The committee also cut $450 from the Human Resources Department’s request of $1,650 for computers and printers, reducing the allocation to $1,200. Sometimes, the review committee increased a department’s request for funds. In the case of the Department of Development Review and Permitting, the committee increased the request for computers and printers from $4,250 to $11,840, an increase of $7,590. The increase was considered necessary because of software issues with computers using the outdated XP operating system, which is no longer supported by Windows. The Environmental Program Department had not requested any

funds for computers and printers, but the committee added $3,600 in that category. In the category of other general government, the review committee had recommended a cut of $107,182 from the $360,047 request for building and property improvements, reducing it to $252,865. They also cut $50,600 from the requested $53,000 for office equipment to just $2,400. The Sheriff’s Office budget saw a cut of $37,660 from the requested $138,053 for law enforcement equipment, reducing it to $100,393. That office also saw a cut of $10,000 from its requested $30,000 for vehicle repairs and $31,756 was cut from its requested $56,690 for uniforms. Its $431,157 request for vehicles was cut by $190,261 to $240,896. The Worcester County Jail had made a late request of $46,235 for radios, which the commissioners approved because the radios are needed for security reasons. County Commissioner Madison Bunting thought it was too much money for radios, but Bud Church, the commissioners’ president, said, “The security of officers in paramount.” Commissioner Louise Gulyas said

she had no problem with Warden Garry Mumford’s requested $8 million budget, which she said was “down to the bone.” Budgets for other county departments, including the Fire Marshal’s Office, Economic Development, Recreation and Parks Department and Public Works were also perused and adjustments made. The commissioners also discussed funds for volunteer fire companies in the county. Each of 10 fire companies, those in Pocomoke, Berlin, Snow Hill, Ocean City, Girdletree, Stockton, Newark, Bishopville, Showell and Ocean Pines, was allocated $195,703 in the budget, but Commissioner Virgil Shockley said that amount needed to be increased to $225,000 and the others agreed to add $29,297 for each volunteer fire company. “These little companies wouldn’t be in business if we didn’t,” Shockley said. The commissioners will continue working on the budget Wednesday, May 21, at 9 a.m. An additional budget work session will be held Tuesday, May 27, if needed. The commissioners will pass the budget June 3.

AGH patients can now log online to view health info (May 16, 2014) Patients can now go online to see test results and review their doctors’ instructions after their stay at Atlantic General Hospital. It is part of a years-long effort that started with building an electronic medical record and has continued with the creation of a digital connection with patients to share valuable health information. It’s called the PERKS Portal. PERKS, which stands for Patient Electronic Record Keeping Service, is the electronic medical record Atlantic General launched in 2013. The goal of the PERKS Portal? To empower individuals to make better decisions and take appropriate action about their health and healthcare through the convenience of a userfriendly web site that puts the information they need right at their fingertips. “Knowing your medical instructions is key to getting well as soon as possible,” said Colleen Wareing, vice president of patient care at Atlantic General Hospital. “If a patient loses the discharge instructions they were given when they left the hospital, it takes time and effort to request another copy. Often that time and effort become a barrier to securing the information people need to take care of themselves properly. A major

component of the PERKS Portal is providing quick, easy access, in addition to tools that improve patient understanding of their condition.” Any individual discharged from an inpatient or observation unit at Atlantic General now receives an email invitation to register for their PERKS Portal account to view their discharge instructions, educational materials and results for lab and imaging tests. Medical records captured since Jan.1, are available within the PERKS Portal. This is true as well for patients of Atlantic General Health System doctors, who started sending email invitations to register for the PERKS Portal on May 1. In addition to the ability to view lab and imaging test results, health system patients can request prescription refills, view vaccination records, request appointments, and send messages to their doctor’s office – all with a few clicks of a button. Medical apps that allow you to monitor blood pressure or blood glucose levels and perform other health management tasks are also available. Questions regarding the portal can be directed to the PERKS Portal Help desk at 410-641-9977 or perksportal@atlanticgeneral.org.

Tourism officials name Worcester Green winners Sustainable practices by area businesses awarded

(May 16, 2014) Worcester County Tourism named the 2014 Worcester Green Award winners during the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association dinner meeting, April 24. Worcester Green awards are given to area businesses and individuals dedicated to implementing sustainable environmental practices, such as water conservation, wastewater management, alternative transportation, recycling, energy conservation, on-site renewable energy production, use of local products and foods and the purchase of renewable energy. “It’s exciting for me to see who in our community is doing such innovative, new, fun stuff,” Tourism Director Lisa Challenger said. “I hope their recognition encourages others to follow their leadership and dedication in showing that being green is good business.” The Berlin Library Branch Demonstration Garden was named the Worcester Green Award Community Organization due to the work of Master Gardeners Pat Pilling, Sharon Peterson and Patti Kernan.

Author to sign books at OC gallery DD Lorenzo’s life-long ties to resort readily apparent in two novels set in town

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) An author with lifelong ties to Ocean City will be signing her books tomorrow at Ocean Gallery on the Boardwalk. DD Lorenzo’s first two novels in her five-part “Depth of Emotion” series, all set in Ocean City, will be on sale at the Second Street signing, which runs from 2-8 p.m. Though Lorenzo began devising the plot for her romance/suspense series more than a decade ago, her ties to this area stretch back much farther, she said. “I’d always spent every childhood vacation in Ocean City, so it was my favorite place in the world to be,” Lorenzo said. “When these imaginary characters started to take life, I couldn’t think of a better place for it to take place.” Though she started writing in the eighth grade, Lorenzo took her hobby to a full-time passion when she was left largely bedridden about a year ago, she said. To keep busy, she started a blog on Facebook reviewing books, which garnered the attention of two New York Times writers, she said. “They both contacted me and asked if I’d ever been published,” Lorenzo said, and in six months she published her first book, “Positive/Negativity,” released last November. The first in a series of five, the book tells the story of two opposites, Aria Cole and Declan Sinclair, who both come to Ocean City to process momentous life changes — the loss of a parent for Aria and a career change for middle-aged male model Declan. “His interest is piqued by a solitary woman who sits daily within his view,” Lorenzo said. “They meet over a rainstorm and it all starts over coffee. “They build their relationship, but at the end of book one, something terrible happens, and then in book two it picks up,” she said. In the second book “Selective/Memory,” Aria and Declan move forward separately. But as they work to regain control, Lorenzo introduces a villainess who appears throughout the remainder of the series. As she’s done every summer, Lorenzo returned to Ocean City this week from the Nottingham home she shares with her husband. The two hope to relocate here eventually, she said. “Any chance that we can get to get there, we go,” she said. “There’s nothing like n old beach town.”

Her love for the seaside plays a strong role in her stories, where “the ocean itself is almost a character,” she said. “Aria goes there to heal. Declan goes there because he needs to clear his head. As you meet their friends in the book, they all go to the ocean for a special reason.” Many of her readers share a similar fascination with the sea and have recognized historic spots in Ocean City in her novels, she said, and those ties have helped the novels gain a following quickly. “People are responding to the stories. They really seem to identify with the characters and everyone tells me that they love being at the beach, so that makes the book appealing,” Lorenzo said. “I’m surprised at how many people have ties to Ocean City,” including readers from Australia, Ire-

land and Canada. Since November, Lorenzo’s Facebook following has jumped from 140 to almost 2,100. Her “Depth of Emotion” Twitter account went from 1 follower to more than 300 in the same time. She is working on the third in her series, “Here/Now,” which tells the story of a character introduced in her first book. Lorenzo hopes to release it in the fall and begin work on the fourth novel, “Same/Difference,” which follows the plot of another character.

COUNTY BRIEFS

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Tuesday, May 6, meeting.

Maryland General Assembly. He was chosen to be the page because of his interest in government, including his leadership work and his participation as a student member of the Worcester County Board of Education.

Proclamations

Housing rehab

The commissioners presented a proclamation recognizing May as National Foster Care Month to Roberta Baldwin, deputy director of Social Services, who said 27 foster children are now being cared for. The commissioners also presented a proclamation to Lawrence Purnell because he and his wife, Dionne, are the 2014 Worcester County Resource Parents of the Year for their efforts to help bring support and stability back into the live of foster children during times of crisis. The Purnells have cared for 40 children in their home. This is the first time that the Purnells, who live in Wicomico County, have cared for a child from Worcester County. The commissioners also presented a proclamation to Warden Garry Mumford in recognition of May 4-10 being National Correctional Officers and Employees Week.

The commissioners approved the request of Jo Ellen Bynum, housing rehabilitation administrator, to apply for an additional $300,000 Community Development Block Grant for the rehabilitation of 18 owner-occupied homes. The grant term ends June 30, at which time all funds will be spent and 25 homes will have been rehabilitated.

Commendation The commissioners presented a commendation to Snow Hill High School senior Alexander Shockley who served as Worcester County’s page to the 2014

for reading water meters to be purchased directly from HD Supply of Montross, Va. Four units need to be replaced at a total cost of $22,400 in order to bring the equipment into compatibility with upgraded computer software. They also approved the request of Health Officer Debbie Goeller to waive the formal bidding process and to purchase software for an agency-wide electronic health record, practice management and billing system product. The Health Department must upgrade its health information technology software to be compliant with the federal Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act. The Health Department is leveraging funds from several sources to pay the

$385,703 for the new software and installation.

POS allocations Recreation and Parks Director Paige Hurley told the commissioners that the department will receive no new funding from the Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Office for fiscal year 2014 this year. The fiscal year 2015 allocation will be allocated in thirds during fiscal years 2016, 2017 and fiscal year 2018. The county will receive the second third for the fiscal year 2014 allocation in the amount of $162,000. The last thirds will be allocated during fiscal year 2016.

Bids The commissioners awarded the contract to replace the roof of the Berlin library to Hunter Allied of Maryland, which had the low bid of $58,000. Although the county commissioners would like to build a new library, they want to replace the roof of the current library to maintain the building’s integrity. The commissioners approved the request of Public Works Director John Tustin to bid the work for the reconstruction of the boat ramp and shoreline stabilization at Taylors Landing. Regulatory permits for the work have been obtained. The commissioners also approved Tustin’s request to waive the formal bidding process and allow handheld units

Expansion of the sewer planning area will accommodate the public sewer needs of commercial properties. WGC EDU LLC is the entity undertaking expansion of the sewer plant for GlenRiddle. When GlenRiddle was developed, developer Goody Taylor constructed water and wastewater treatment plants with the standard agreement that both would eventually be turned over to the county. A clause in that turnover agreement permitted the developer to expand the sewer plant, even though it would be, by that time, a county-owned facility. WGC EDU LLC must pay the upfront costs of the plant’s expansion and will do that by selling wastewater treatment capacity that will be available after the expansion. The county commissioners were amenable to the project because WGC EDU LLC would be footing the bill and owners of the commercial properties along Route 50 would have the ability to develop them. To make the project worthwhile financially, the developer included additional properties in the service area that have the ability to purchase units of wastewater treatment.

City to offer enhancements to CVB webpage

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) After several false starts, the city’s Tourism Commission will again attempt to offer “enhancements” – both in user features and in the city’s revenue – to the city’s Convention and Visitors’ Bureau webpage. With CVB listings, the major element of the city’s ococean.com tourism Web site, generating such massive exposure for such a low joining cost, city leaders have long desired to get more for their offering. “This came up again during budget time,” Commission Chair and Council Secretary Mary Knight said. “We

Incentives could be on table for Walmart proximity Continued from Page 24 sioners want the Maryland Department of the Environment to approve the amendment providing for the increased capacity, but they want to move ahead while waiting for that anticipated approval. An obstacle is the cost of EDUs, the unit of wastewater treatment capacity needed for the average single-family home, which would be approximately $30,000. That additional expense, Badger said, affects lease rates and the county’s ability to attract restaurants and quality retailers in the Super Walmart area. In Berlin, the cost of EDUs is about half the cost of what they will be in that area. “That has an impact on their ability to move forward,” Badger said of businesses that might be interested in locating to the Super Walmart area. Badger proposed the county permit him to proceed with a study, to be done by a consultant, who would give a full range of options for the county’s future growth. The cost for the first phase, Badger said, would not exceed $2,000. “Time is money and the market is hot,” Badger said. Commissioner Virgil Shockley said the county’s plan about the way commercial buildings should appear needs review. The current plan, known as the Design Guidelines and Standards for Commercial Building, would not allow Cracker Barrel or Texas Roadhouse. “We need to look at the plan and how it affects the two we’re trying to get in here,” Shockley said. Commissioner Madison Bunting, who served as chairman of the county Planning Commission before he was elected, said the county’s design guidelines “really do need to be looked at.” County attorney Sonny Bloxom agreed. “Design guidelines are the biggest issue,” Bloxom said.

still feel there’s a lot more revenue out there.” But how to parse it out has been more of an issue. “The question is, do you want to go with the [Ocean City Hotel-MotelRestaurant] Association’s wish to keep everyone equal, or do you want to maximize your revenue,” said Carousel Group partner Michael James. Previously, the city had desired to both sell advertising on ococean.com, as well as to offer CVB members the option to pay extra to receive higher billing in the listings. But the HMRA’s board and other constituent businesses had objected that larger, wealthier members would be able to dominate the Web site, which is publicly-funded and intended to be a level representation of

what the resort has to offer. “The fear was that you would get to the point where the visitor is only going to see the higher-priced properties because they’re paying the city more,” HMRA Executive Director Susan Jones said. This week, as somewhat of a compromise measure, the commission decided that businesses would be able to pay for additional features on their listings – but would not be able to buy a higher rotation in listings or any additional visibility per-click. As a model, Mayor Rick Meehan noted that the real estate sites he uses for his business offer additional text and colors for a certain fee, but still do not put less relevant listings above more relevant ones simply because they paid more. “I always buy the better-looking

listing,” Meehan said. “Even for the smaller properties, this is such an inexpensive way for them to get out there.” “That would make more sense and be more equal,” Jones said. The CVB currently has 320 members, according to Tourism Director Donna Abbott, with membership running $200 annually. However, the ococean.com listings are far from self-sustaining, and are paid for as part of the city’s combined marketing budget of over $5 million, which is largely funded through room taxes. “You’re getting on a Web site that has $5 million in backing for an incredibly low price,” Jones said. The commission requested that Abbott put together a mockup of the enhanced listing and a proposed new fee schedule.

Organizations urge O’Malley to veto ‘anti-wind’ measure If allowed to stand, bill would halt development planning for Eastern Shore

(May 16, 2014) Three organizations with hundreds of business members across Maryland—the American Sustainable Business Council, the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council and Green America—are urging Gov. Martin O’Malley to veto H.B. 1168, “the anti-wind bill.” The bill calls for a 15-month moratorium on wind power on the Eastern Shore. If allowed to stand, this bill would essentially halt plans for the development of the Great Bay Wind Center. This wind center would make Maryland a leader in clean energy development and would help the state to achieve its renewable energy production goal of 20 percent by 2022. H.B. 1168 would halt this progress, and would result in a crucial loss of confidence and capital from investors and wind developers who would doubt Maryland’s commitment to wind energy and look to invest in other states, according to the groups. “Many Maryland businesses rec-

ognize that advancement of renewable energy is essential to building a strong economy in Maryland and across our nation,” said Fran Teplitz, policy director for Green America and the Green Business Network. “The Great Bay Wind Center would significantly advance clean energy, cut Maryland’s carbon pollution, create new jobs in a lower income region of the state, and increase tax revenue.” “If this bill is allowed to stand, it will have a negative impact on landbased wind production in Maryland well into the future,” said Stephen Shaff, executive director of the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council asserted. “Local business leaders urge the governor to build Maryland’s clean energy economy and veto HB 1168.” Richard Eidlin, co-founder and policy director of the American Sustainable Business Council concluded, “We need to act on the latest information from the new National Climate Assessment regarding economic disruption to coastal areas. Maryland’s coastal areas are vulnerable to sea level rises and related dangers that pose a significant threat to human, environmental, and our economic well-being.”

Man to be sentenced for pair of burglaries

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) The Westover man who was shot by a homeowner last June after he broke into the man’s house off Route 611 near Assateague Island will be sentenced for that crime and another burglary July 14. On that day, he is expected to testify against an alleged accomplice. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill on May 2, Kente Wilcom, 30, pleaded not guilty, but agreed with the statement of facts, which is essentially a guilty plea, to two counts of first-degree burglary. After hearing the facts of each case, Judge Thomas C. Groton found him guilty of both charges. On May 7, Wilcox and Maurice Anthony Holden, 32, of Melfa, Va., were traveling in a van with telephone directories as a ruse so they could pre-

tend they were delivering them. Actually, they just wanted to try to break into houses. They entered a house off Route 611 after finding its garage door opener in an unlocked car while the owners were away. Inside, they stole a safe containing jewelry, with a value of at least $508,000. Most of the jewelry was family heirlooms and several were one-of-a-kind pieces. The safe was later found in a wooded area. During the investigation, police saw a video of Wilcox, Holden and a woman at a pawn shop in Pocomoke where they allegedly pawned some items stolen from that house. The woman was allegedly Patricia Johnson, 31, of Pocomoke, who is scheduled for trial in July. On June 1, Wilcom, this time ac-

companied by Kemayne Shabazz Smith, 35, of Dagsboro, Del., broke into a house not far from the house where he and Holden had stolen the safe. The homeowner was in his secondfloor office when he heard the doorbell ring. Looking out, he saw a parked white van and saw Wilcox at the front door. He also saw Wilcox walk to the van, get a duffle bag and return to the house. He then heard a loud noise at the side door as the burglars broke in. The homeowner ran to the third floor, grabbed and loaded his .45 caliber revolver and locked the door of the room he was in. He also tried to barricade it and he heard two men walking around his house and up his stairs. The men pushed on the door of the room the homeowner was in. “As the door was giving way, [the

homeowner] fired a single shot,” Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Rakow said in court last week. The shot hit Wilcox in his shoulder and the homeowner heard him stumble down the stairs. Then he walked to the door and looked out because he thought the intruder was leaving. He saw Smith on the stairs so he pointed his gun at him. Smith turned around and walked down the stairs and out of the house. The homeowner heard two honks from a vehicle horn and saw Smith get into the white van. He then called 911. Police chased the van into Delaware and it stopped past Selbyville. Wilcox ran, but was caught. Smith remained in the van and both were arrested. After a day-long trial on Jan. 9, a jury found Smith guilty of first- and fourth-degree burglary. On March 11, Judge Brian Shockley sentenced Smith to 20 years in prison, with 10 years suspended. On March 6, Judge William Simpson sentenced Holden to 15 years in prison, with all but five years suspended for his crime of first-degree burglary. Holden had entered an Alford plea to the charge. In an Alford plea, the defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges the prosecution has sufficient evidence for a conviction.

OP man sentenced for heroin distribution By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) The Ocean Pines rapper known as “Hott Spitter” was sentenced May 2, to four years in prison, with all but one suspended for distribution of heroin. After Brian Jones Sr., 36, pleaded guilty Jan. 9 to that charge in Circuit Court in Snow Hill, Judge Thomas C. Groton III ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Judge Groton permitted Jones to remain out of jail on bond to care for his wife, who was in the courtroom in a wheelchair the day he pleaded guilty to the drug offense. Jones, his defense attorney had said, was the sole caretaker for his wife, Jennifer, who was unable to get out of bed unassisted and needed help with essential needs such as bathing and

dressing. Unable to eat, the woman, who weighed less than 100 pounds was fed through a feeding tube. Less than three weeks later, Jennifer Melvin, 29, died at Atlantic General Hospital. In court May 2, Jones thanked Judge Groton for allowing him to be with his wife “for her last 20 days on earth.” Jones had been the target of an investigation into drug distribution by the Criminal Enforcement Team of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. A detective obtained his cell phone number, called and left a message. Jones called the detective and agreed to sell him eight bundles of heroin, with each bundle containing 12 to 13 bags of the drug, for $1,040. The two met in a store parking lot in Ocean Pines on May 30, 2013. Jones

was driven there by a 29-year-old woman who, according to court information, shares his address in Ocean Pines. Jones left that vehicle, got into the detective’s vehicle and handed him a black hat. Inside the hat were the bags of heroin. The detective gave Jones money for the heroin and the two parted ways. As Jones returned to his residence in the area known as Sherwood Forest in South South Ocean Pines, other detectives followed him. Jones was charged with distribution of heroin, two counts of possession of heroin with the intent to distribute it, conspiracy to distribute heroin, conspiracy to possession heroin with the intent to distribute it, two counts of possession of heroin and conspiracy to possess heroin. In exchange for his guilty plea to the first charge, the other charges against him were not prosecuted. In court last Friday, Jones’ defense attorney, Edward Richitelli, said Jones had become addicted to drugs following a 2006 accident when he was struck by a vehicle while riding a bike and suffered a head injury. He was prescribed oxycodone and then oxycontin for pain. He had traded marijuana for heroin with a female friend, who “got jammed up with police and turned them on to my client,” Richitelli said. That started the investigation that led to his arrest.

Assistant State’s Attorney Ajene Turnbull said the sentencing guidelines for Jones, who had no criminal record, were six months to three years incarceration. Judge Groton, however, meted out a harsher sentence of four years, although three years were suspended, to be followed by two years of supervised probation. “This is not an unusual case,” Judge Groton said of the circumstances of a person who is prescribed painkillers and moves on to heroin. Jones, who has an eighth-grade education, had been working at a restaurant in Fenwick, Del., but although Judge Groton authorized work release, at the discretion of warden at the Worcester County Jail, work release is unlikely to be permitted for a job in another state. Jones asked if he could start his jail sentence a day later so he could try to find a different job, but the judge said the jail staff would assist with that. According to online information, Jones is also known as Hott Spitter, a street rapper who performed at the 2009 Funk Master Flex Show at the Ocean City Convention Center. A YouTube video shows him performing at the show. Another video seems to show him performing in a yard in Ocean Pines. Last spring, he was promoting his album, “Hott Spitter. Can’t Ban The Pill Man,” and his single, “When I Shoot!”

Additional funds could soon be made available to county Monies would be used to spur area business growth; create job opportunities

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Additional funds could soon be available for Worcester County businesses. Economic Development Director Bill Badger is applying for funds from the U.S. Department of Agricultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Intermediary Relending Program. If any funds are awarded, they will be placed into the Worcester County Revolving Loan Fund, managed by Maryland Capital Enterprises, a private non-profit in Salisbury. Funds would be used to spur new business growth and to assist business owners with expanding their businesses in the county. The goal is to increase the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax base and to create jobs. The loans, which would range from $25,000 to $150,000, could be used for commercial real estate acquisition, building improvements, equipment purchases, leasehold improvements, start-up costs and refinancing of existing debt if retaining or creating new jobs. They could also be used for the transfer of ownership if the loan would keep the business

from closing, to prevent the loss of jobs and working capital. Interest rates, which range from 3 percent and 5 percent, will vary due to market conditions. The maximum loan term will be 10 years. If the funds are granted to the county, Badger and the Department of Economic Developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy director, Meredith Mears, will begin a marketing program, including the use of social media, to raise awareness of the loans. Business owners will be able to obtain applications for the loans at www.choseworcester.org or by email at chooseworcester@co.worcester.md.us. In addition to filling out the application, people who want a loan must supply a business plan, personal and company income tax returns for the past two years and a personal financial statement. It is anticipated that the committee reviewing the applications will make a decision about the requested loan within 30 days after receiving the required information. The committee will give priority to those businesses providing additional jobs or providing a needed product or service generating additional tax revenues. See MORE Page 32

Lady Seahawks win 3A-2A East Regional crown

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

The Worcester Prep girls' lacrosse team poses with its Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship trophy after winning last Friday's title game, 14-8, over the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres in Berlin. The Mallards also received a trophy for finishing No. 1 during the regular season.

Lady Mallards ESIAC champions Worcester Prep’s girls’ lax team goes undefeated in 2014, boasts 15-0 record

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) The girls’ lacrosse games between Worcester Prep and Sts. Peter & Paul were close battles during the regular season and the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship match was no different–at least in the first half. On April 2, Worcester’s Lady Mallards pulled out a 9-8 victory over the Sabres in Berlin. A few weeks later on April 23 in Easton, the Prep squad edged out Sts. Peter & Paul, 17-15, in overtime. The two teams met for the third time this season last Friday in Berlin to go head-to-head for the ESIAC title. About a minute and a half into the game the visiting Sabres led, 2-0. Goals by senior captain Lilly DiNardo and Kristen Shriver, a senior, evened it a 2-2. About 20 seconds after Shriver’s goal, Sts. Peter & Paul scored. Shriver made it 3-3 two minutes later. Throughout the half, the Sabres would go up by one goal and either DiNardo or Shriver would answer. Tied 7-7 with 2:25 remaining in the half, DiNardo gave Worcester an 8-7 lead. With 12.8 seconds on the

clock, Shriver provided the Prep team with a two-goal cushion. Prep Coach Allie Gamble had senior Alissa Talbert take the draws in the second half and it was a beneficial move. “We put Alissa Talbert on the draw, which we’ve never done before…the girls convinced me to give it a shot and it started working,” Gamble said. “She was putting the ball right where we wanted it and our girls were faster off the line, so it definitely changed to tempo of the game.” Shriver and DiNardo boosted the Mallards advantage to 11-7 early in the second half. The Sabres cut the lead to three with 10:44 left in the game. It would be the team’s last goal. DiNardo took the ball to the cage and shot past the Sts. Peter & Paul goalie to put Worcester on top, 12-8. Senior captain Alie Greer capitalized on a free-position shot after getting fouled with 9:54 remaining. DiNardo netted Worcester’s 14th goal at the 5:13 mark. “The first two times we played them it was pretty close and we fought hard and came out with a win both times, and the third game, the first half was pretty close, but we made some adjustments at half and we just put them away,” Shriver said. “We felt really confident once we got up a couple goals, then our plan was to just hold it and not let them get the

ball and go on offense.” DiNardo and Shriver came up big for the Mallards in their final game playing for Worcester. DiNardo finished the match with seven goals. Shriver chipped in with six and Greer had one goal and two assists. Senior goalie Maddie Pilchard stopped eight Sabres’ shots. “We kept working hard and our girls really wanted it. I say time and time again they always step up to the plate,” Gamble said after the Mallards were presented with the championship trophy. “We started taking care of the ball more once we got up by a few goals and we tried to work it around and burn two or three minutes off the clock every time we had a possession. Our girls did a great job of adjusting to that. I think they played awesome. They played together, they played like a team and everyone stepped up big.” The Mallards went undefeated, 150, this season. “That’s what we were looking forward to all season. We were trying to have a perfect season and win the ESIAC,” Shriver said. “It’s a perfect way to end my senior year.” “It’s really exciting to with the ESIAC championship. Half of the excitement comes from us having an undefeated season,” DiNardo said. “Twelve of us are [graduating] so this is just a great note to leave on…It’s See SEASON Page 36

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Stephen Decatur’s girls’ lacrosse team captured the 3A2A East Region championship title Wednesday night, with an 18-5 victory over the Calvert Cavaliers in Berlin. Decatur, the No. 1 seed in Section I of the 3A-2A East Region, got on the board early and never looked back. Senior captain Erin Florek gave the Lady Seahawks a 1-0 lead less than two minutes into the game. Junior Payton VanKirk made it 2-0 a minute and a half later. Back-to-back goals by junior Blair Yesko boosted the home team’s advantage to four goals. Decatur led 13-2 at halftime. “They had three players that we were concerned with…but from what we could determine of them, we couldn’t see any team offense,” said Decatur Coach Bob Musitano. “Our defense just played really well.” Senior captain Layla Fowler and Yesko finished the game with three goals and two assists each. Florek chipped in with three goals and one assist. Junior goalie Jillian Petito stopped five Calvert shots. “Jillian had another monster game in the goal,” Musitano said. Freshman Sara Mitrecic made one save in the second half. After the game, Musitano said it “feels great” to win the regional title. “I told them everything looks like it’s going to align properly if they just keep focused and they did. They really did,” Musitano said. Decatur advanced to the regional championship game against Calvert, the No. 1 team in Section II of the 3A2A East, after earning a 12-8 victory over the Section I No. 2 team, the Parkside Rams, Monday in Berlin. Parkside scored first, 49 seconds into the match. Senior Cassidy Remmell tied it 1-1 and VanKirk provided Decatur with the go-ahead goal. Goals were traded in the first half and the score was even, 4-4, with one minute to play before halftime. Senior Sammi Quilter netted a shot with 23.6 seconds on the clock to give the Seahawks a 5-4 lead going into the break. During halftime, Musitano said he told the Seahawks, “It’s one and out. If you don’t start to control the game, this is it.” Musitano made some personnel changes in the second half and gave some players a rest. Decatur led 7-6 with 13:35 left in See DECATUR Page 36

Season learning experience for players, first-year coach Continued from Page 35 been a fun career and I think that me and the other seniors brought a lot to this program and made it grow.” A number of Mallards were honored with All-ESIAC awards. Named to the First Team was DiNardo, Shriver, Pilchard, Talbert and senior Meg Lingo. Second Team accolades went to Greer and junior Molly Soule. Gamble and Sts. Peter & Paul Coach, Katie Lowman, were named ESIAC Co-Coach of the Year. “Our coaching this year was defi-

nitely one of the reasons we got to 150. They’ve earned a big ‘Thank You,” DiNardo said. “I really got lucky that I jumped into it with such a great group of girls. They made me look like a genius, but I’m not,” Gamble said. “Like I said in the beginning of the season, it was a learning experience for me and a learning experience for them. I’m just happy it all worked out…I’ve grown to love these girls and I think they’ve grown to love me, and we all really bonded.”

Worcester Prep junior Molly Soule controls the ball for the Lady Mallards during last Friday's Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship game against Sts. Peter & Paul.

Continued from Page 35 the game. Goals by sophomore Elle Bargar, freshman Brigitte Ardis and two by Remmell put the Berlin squad on top, 11-6 with 6:30 remaining. “We just made so many wrong decisions (in the first half), but they gutted it out. It looked like they were still a little tired from prom (two nights earlier). You could tell they were dragging,” Musitano said. “In the second half we were spread out and we didn’t force anything. If you were open, you got the ball…I’m pleased with the outcome, but it wasn’t easy getting there.” Quilter and Remmell tallied three goals apiece. Yesko contributed two goals and Florek (three assists), Bargar and VanKirk each scored one goal each.

Petito recorded 11 saves. “She just ate them up. If you’re right on top of her you’re going to have a problem,” Musitano said. Decatur defeated the No. 4 seed, the Kent Island Buccaneers 16-8 in the Section I semifinals last Friday in Berlin. Leading the charge for the Seahawks was VanKirk with four goals and one assist. VanKirk twisted her ankle during Wednesday’s game against Calvert, but Musitano is hoping to have her for Saturday’s match, where Decatur (142) is scheduled to battle the 3A-2A West Regional champs, the Oakdale Bears (15-2), at Annapolis High School in the state semifinal round. To be successful, Musitano said the Seahawks must “play our game.”

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Errors plagued the Stephen Decatur Seahawks, who needed to play a nearly perfect game of softball on Monday if they wanted a chance of earning a victory over the Northern Patriots of Calvert County, a team that has won the 3A state Coach Patnode championship title since 2008. “We had a rough first inning allowing seven runs. We had quite a few errors along with their hits,” said Coach Heather Patnode of her Decatur squad, which was seeded No. 3 in Section I of the 3A South Region. “They

hit very well, but we made some bad decisions the first inning which put us behind.” Northern, the No. 1 seed in Section I of the 3A South, scored two in the third and fourth innings to win, 11-0. “Without our errors, it would have been maybe a 5-0 game at the end of the fourth,” Patnode said. Senior captain Beth Laque struck out two Patriots, walked two and allowed six hits. Patnode said the visiting Seahawks committed at least six errors. “After the first inning we played well,” Patnode said. “Our downfall was not being able to hit. Their pitcher, Jess Cummings, who has committed to Penn State, had a total of 13 strikeouts…Beth and [senior See PATNODE Page 37

Patnode already looking forward to next yr. Continued from Page 36 captain] Taylor Black were the only ones to make contact with the ball, but both were ground outs.” The goal was for Decatur to finish the season .500 and the Seahawks accomplished that at 9-9. Patnode said Tuesday, she was not ready for the season to be over. This was Patnode’s eighth season with the program. She helped run the JV team for three years before becoming an assistant varsity coach under Don Howard. He stepped down as head coach after 35 years leading the program and Patn-

ode took over for the 2014 season. “I am very lucky to have the group of young ladies as I did for my first year as head coach. I couldn’t have wished for anything better,” she said. “We grew together, learned together, laughed and cried together. We had our good and bad times, but all in all it was a great season for us.” Patnode said there were many changes made this year. Black was the only returning starter who played the same position as last year, she said. “Everyone else was a new starter. We learned to make adjustments, and

in the end, we became a better team,” Patnode said. “I wish the season would last longer so we could continue to grow. I enjoy spending every day with these girls and I’m going to miss them so much.” The team will lose three players– Black, Laque and Erin Summers–to graduation. With only three girls leaving, Patnode said she hopes the team will do well next season with players returning having a year experience under their belts. “However, we are losing two critical positions: short stop and pitcher.

I hope to see the younger girls step it up in the off-season to prepare for the hardship of losing our captains and crucial players,” Patnode said. “These two girls are going to be very hard to replace as they have been with me for four seasons and played a huge role in our success this year. I am very much looking forward to next season already, as I think the girls are too… With all the rain and snow at the beginning of the season, it seems like this year went way quicker than those in the past. It definitely snuck up on us.”

Decatur boys’ lacrosse team finish ‘14 with 12-5 record

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Competing against an opponent three times in a season is difficult, especially when that team is a powerhouse. Stephen Decatur’s and Kent Island’s boys’ lacrosse teams went head-to-head April 26 during the regular-season competition and the Buccaneers won, 20-6 on their field. The Seahawks and Buccaneers battled for the Bayside Conference championship in Easton last week, and again, Kent Island came out on top, 15-2. The squads met for the third time on Monday in Stevensville in the 3A2A East Region Section I finals. Second-seeded Decatur was competing without two key players–juniors Matt

LeCompte and Shane Moore. Moore was sidelined with a neck injury and LeCompte was hit by a ball during warm-ups and suffered a slight concussion. Junior Jake Lathroum scored two goals and junior Corey Gwin, a team captain, netted one for Decatur in the first half. Kent Island led 9-3 at the break. The top-seeded Buccaneers held the Seahawks scoreless in the second half and went on to win, 16-3. “We got a couple shots off in the second half, but we didn’t get many looks at all. Their defense kind of shut us down,” Decatur Coach Scott Lathroum said. “They worked hard, we were just out-gunned. Losing to them three times hurts, but that’s a really good team.” Junior captain Will Hastings stopped 10 Kent Island shots. Junior goalie Josiah Oswald made two saves. Decatur advanced to the 3A-2A East Section I finals after shutting out the No. 3 Parkside Rams, 17-0, last Friday in Berlin. Gwin led the Seahawks with five goals and two assists. Lathroum and junior TJ Scafone contributed with three goals and two assists apiece. Jackson Mumford, a junior, tallied two goals and an assist. Juniors Matt LeCompte (two assists), Evan Heim (one assist), RJ Hayman and Colton Lohnas each scored a goal. Sophomore Dryden Brous and senior Danny Beck won 16 of 21 face-offs. Oswald stopped two Rams’ shots. Decatur finished the 2104 season 12-5. “Any time you get 12 wins in a season you’re doing something right,” Lathroum said. “The teams we lost to are [ranked] in the top 15 in the state. We lost to quality teams, so you can’t complain about that.” The team will graduate six players, but a core group will be returning in 2015. “We’ll have our whole offense back, so we should be pretty good for next season,” Lathroum said. “We need to work in the off-season to get better. We need the JV players to get bigger and stronger and fill in some of the spots.”

Decatur baseball squad wins in extra innings twice this wk. By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Stephen Decatur’s baseball team won two games this week in extra innings and the Seahawks remain in contention for regional and state titles. Monday’s marathon game in Berlin lasted three hours and 40 minutes and went nine innings with Decatur, the No. 1 team in Section I of the 3A South Region, edging out the No. 4 James M. Bennett Clippers, 10-9. When asked what he thought the game came down to, Decatur Coach Rich Ferro said, “luck.” “We got a couple borderline pitches that maybe should have been called strikes. We were very fortunate,” he said. “We have to be better. We’re fortunate to walk out of here with a win.” The Seahawks scored two in the first, but the Clippers answered in the second with four runs. In the bottom of the second inning with sophomore Lane Dillon on base, senior Nick Bennett hit a two-run

home run to even the score, 4-4. Senior Andrew Borradaile drove in two runs to put Decatur on top, 6-4. The Seahawks scored one more in the inning to pull ahead, 7-4. Bennett tied it 7-7 in the next inning and took an 8-7 lead in the sixth. In the bottom of the seventh, the Clippers’ catcher dropped a third strike on senior Jacob Hickman and Meekins sprinted from third base and slid into home to send the game into extra innings. Bennett took a 9-8 lead in the top of the ninth. In the bottom of the inning, senior Chase Coursey’s sack fly scored N. Bennett. With the bases loaded, junior Ryan Bennett was walked and Decatur won the game, 10-9. “I thought they were a little lackadaisical. Defensively, we were not as sharp as we need to be and we didn’t throw strikes,” Ferro said. “In the regular season you play 18 games and everything’s good, but now in playoffs, you’re one and done. I really didn’t see See DECATUR Page 39

Decatur baseball team eyes 3A South Regional crown Continued from Page 38 a sense of urgency until late in the game. They were worried about every pitch, they were upset about every play. We try to preach ‘win the next pitch, win the next pitch,’ but they we hanging on to every pitch, every mistake, getting upset with their performance when they have to control their emotion.” N. Bennett led Decatur with three hits and 2 RBIs. Hickman went 2-for4 with an RBI. On the mound, junior Grant Donahue struck out four, gave up two home runs and walked four in two and twothird innings. Junior Sean Colgan took the mound for four and one-third innings. He struck out five and allowed two hits. N. Bennett finished the game. He struck out three, allowed two hits and one walk. The victory Monday advanced Decatur to Wednesday’s Section I finals against the No. 3 Northeast Eagles of Anne Arundel. Again, Decatur pulled out a win in extra innings. The Seahawks got on the board in the bottom of the second, but the Eagle tied it up in the third. Northeast took a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth. Dillon’s RBI single up the middle evened the score, 2-2 in the bot-

tom of the inning. The visiting Eagles tallied a run in the seventh to pull ahead, 3-2. It was do or die for the Seahawks in the bottom of the seventh and the boys came through. With the bases loaded, Borradaile singled to scored a run. In the bottom of the eighth, Meekins stepped up to the plate with one out and two runners on base. He made contact, the ball sailed down the first baseline and stayed fair. Dillon sprinted home and Decatur won the game, 4-3. “I felt confident going in. The kid was throwing strikes and he gave me something to hit and I hit it,” Meekins said. “I wasn’t running too fast (to first base). I probably stopped about halfway and watched to see if it [stayed fair] then I turned around and saw Lane score. It was amazing. My first walk-off hit ever and a perfect spot to do it.” The Seahawks rushed the field to congratulate Meekins and celebrate. Sophomore Zach Adams went 3-for5 and Borradaile had two hits and one RBI. Colgan threw four innings. He struck out six, walked three and allowed three hits. N. Bennett took the mound for the final four innings. He struck out six, walked two and gave up two hits.

Stephen Decatur sophomore Lane Dillon eyes a pitch during Monday's 3A South Section I semifinal game against the James M. Bennett Clippers. Decatur won 10-9 in nine innings.

“It came down to two good teams playing each other, timely hitting, having the right guys up at the opportune times and playing good defense,” Ferro said. “And, our pitchers were great today. They battled and they stayed in the zone. That was huge to keep us in the game.” Decatur (20-1) is set to face the La Plata Warriors, the top team in Section II, today, Friday, at 4 p.m. in Berlin for the 3A South Region title. The Seahawks are going for their

second consecutive regional title. “We’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing–throwing strikes, hitting, just playing good baseball. That’s what it comes down to, and getting some luck time to time,” Ferro said. Added Meekins, “Going back to the regional championship again, we feel we’re more comfortable since we were there last year. I feel like we’re going to perform well. We need to play a little better defensively and cut down on strikeouts and I think we’ll be fine.”

Worcester boys’ lax squad wins ESIAC title

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor May 16, 2014) Worcester Prep’s boys’ lacrosse team lost 15-3 to the Calverton Cougars in the Metro Independent Lacrosse League semifinals last Wednesday in Huntingtown, but the Mallards still had the opportunity to bring home a title as they competed in the EastCoach Gates ern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship game two days later. Prior to the ESIAC finals, Coach Kevin Gates said he hoped his players would perform better than they did in the MILL semifinals, where they seemed to lack focus. On Friday in Berlin, their performance was much improved as the Mallards captured their sixth consecutive ESIAC championship trophy, winning 18-2 over the Gunston Day Herons. Within the first minute and a half, Worcester led, 2-0. Junior Sam Deeley netted the team’s first goal. Sophomore Ross Dickerson won the ensuing face-off and scored. At the end of the first quarter, Worcester led, 4-1. By the halftime break the Mallards had pulled ahead, 11-2.

The Prep team netted six shots in the third quarter and held Gunston scoreless. Senior captain Luke Payne tallied four goals and two assists. Sophomore captain Wyatt Richins logged three goals and two assists. Deeley finished the game with three goals and senior Thomas Buas had two. Senior Jack Marshall, a team captain, contributed with one goal and three assists. Dickerson scored three goals and won 19 of 20 face-offs. The Prep team’s goalies did not see much action. Senior Isaiah Nsah made one save in the first half. Sophomore Wade Walter took over in the third quarter and freshman Rayne Parker played in the cage in the fourth. Neither of them were challenged. “In this playoff game we played much better than the last playoff game,” Gates said. “We played well across the board. It started from faceoffs and we rolled from there.” The Mallards finished the season, 11-5. “This season was much better than last year,” Gates said. In 2013 the team recorded a 7-10 record. It was his first losing season in 11 years (10 at Worcester). “Three teams we lost to last year we beat this year and we won two See SEVERAL Page 40

Lady Mallards take home ninth ESIAC title Worcester Prep girls’ tennis team undefeated, 12-0, in 2014; boys finish, 10-2

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Worcester Prep’s girls’ tennis team captured its ninth consecutive Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference title last Friday at Salisbury University, but it wasn’t a runaway win. The championship came down to the last match, the doubles finals. Players were gathered around the court cheering on the athletes. Worcester’s pair of senior captain Hannah Esham and sophomore Isabel Carulli pulled out a 9-7 victory over their Gunston Day opponents to bring the team title home to Berlin. The match went back and forth, but Worcester’s Lady Mallards usually led by one throughout. Prep Coach Cyndee Hudson said she told Esham and Carulli “to focus on every point and see what you can do.” Leading 8-7, the pair lost the first point of the final game, but won the next four to take the match. Their teammates celebrated with

them after the victory. “They were all very excited,” Hudson said. “We pulled it out. It’s the closest it’s ever been.” In other doubles action, sophomore Erika Smith and partner, Fiona Reid, a junior, won their first-round match, but were eliminated in the second round. Senior captain Lydia Pritchard and junior Paige Evans lost in the first round. In singles competition, junior Tatjana Kondraschow won her first two matches to advance to the finals, where she lost to her Sts. Peter & Paul opponent. Sophomore Sonya Walker was victorious in her first-round match, but she lost in the second round. Junior Mattie Maull was eliminated in the opening round. Gunston Day won the boys’ competition. Worcester finished in second place. Prep Coach Keith Coleman said it wasn’t the Mallards’ best performance. “We lost matches to players we beat in season,” Coleman said. “The tournament format is not a representation of a total team performance. You can only bring six of your top nine players and three are playing out of position. They play singles all year and they’re playing doubles in the

tournament with only a week to prepare.” Coleman was most pleased with juniors Erik Zorn and Kyle Chandler’s performance. They won the doubles title, shutting out their Gunston Day competition, 8-0, in the finals. “They followed every coaching direction to a tee,” Coleman said. “In the other matches that we lost, we were passive and non-aggressive and we let them impose their game on us.” Captains Quinn Lukas, a junior, and senior Chase Schmehling won their first-round singles matches, but lost in the second. Doubles team of junior Chris Choy and sophomore Jason Cook also fell in the second round. Both Worcester Prep teams had a successful season. The Lady Mallards went undefeated, 12-0. Hudson said it was difficult for the girls to get into a groove because so many matches were cancelled due to rain or snow and they weren’t able to get many practices in, but she was pleased with the way they stepped up. All of Hudson’s players improved throughout the season, she said.

“They’ve done such a good job hustling and working hard and encouraging each other,” Hudson said. Kondraschow was named team MVP, Pritchard received the Most Improved award and Esham was presented with the Coaches Award. Worcester will only lose Esham, who played No. 3 singles this year, and Pritchard, a doubles player, to graduation so Hudson is confident the team will be strong next year. The boys’ team finished 10-2. “I was pleased with the season. We were peaking at the right time,” Coleman said. “A number of players showed steady progress. We beat teams we were supposed to beat.” Schmehling was named team MVP. Sophomore Alex Choy received the Most Improved award and Lukas took home the Coaches Award. Seven of the top nine players on Coleman’s roster will be returning in 2015. Schmehling (No. 2) and Daniel Rosa (No. 7) will graduate this month. “We have depth,” Coleman said. “The freshmen [Nik Moondra and Zach Wilson] showed a lot of progress. They have a lot of potential and they should be contributors next year.”

Several Prep players presented with awards Continued from Page 39 games in overtime,” he said. “Looking back on the season, the turning point was the Middleburg game. Even though we lost, we played well. It all came to fruition when we beat Archmere (13-12 in overtime).” Several Mallards earned ESIAC and MILL awards. Nsah, defensemen Jack Pedigo, a senior, and freshman Max Bisaha; Payne (attack) and midfielders,

Richins, Deeley and Marshall were named to the ESIAC First Team, along with Dickerson (face-off specialist). Dickerson won 76 percent of the face-offs he took this season. Sophomore Jordan Osias (defense); attackmen, sophomore Staton Whaley and Buas, and midfielder JB Loomis, a senior, were awarded with Second Team honors. Sophomore Mike Brittingham (defense) scored Honorable Mention accolades.

A/C & HEAT PUMPS

Richins was named ESIAC Player of the Year. Gates received the Coach of the Year award. Richins also earned First Team All-MILL distinction. Dickerson won Second Team honors and Nsah and Payne got Honorable Mention awards. Payne won the Bob Scott award, which recognizes a player in each area who goes above and beyond in service to his team, school and com-

munity. This player exemplifies the fundamentals of the game of lacrosse, is always working hard to improve his game and is a leader amongst his teammates both on and off the field. Seven players, five of whom were starters, will graduate this month. All off the seniors were contributors, Gates said. Despite losing seven players, Gates thinks the team will be solid next year.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN

Owner of Get Gnarly skate shop David Leverton, better known as "Tron," shows off one of his collection of boom boxes that complete the vibe at his store on the Boardwalk at Somerset Street. Get Gnarly opened earlier this month, bringing boards, shirts, hats and a new hangout to local skaters.

Get Gnarly opens on Somerset St. New shop owner wants to give local skateboarders place to gather, hang out

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Get Gnarly just opened on the Boardwalk at Somerset Street, but the skate shop is already giving local skateboarders a place to hang out. Owner David Leverton, better known as “Tron,” opened his shop May 2 and from its bright T-shirts and hats to the local musicians often found playing acoustic guitar out front, the shop is reminiscent of the 90s movies that inspired his lifelong love for skateboarding. “Everyone who grows up skating — there’s this one skate shop where you always hang out,” said Leverton, who spent his childhood in Lutherville riding boards with his neighborhood friends. “It’s lost the feel, where everybody meets up to skate,” he said, but the Boardwalk shop is bringing that back. In addition to skateboards, hats and T-shirts, Get Gnarly stocks Leverton’s childhood boogie board brand, Morey, and surfboards

shipped from his friend in San Francisco. A friend made all the racks, display cases and concrete tables in the shop by hand and another prints the T-shirts from his Hartford County business. “It’s like a little scene,” Leverton said. “It’s just a cool spot.” Originally a video project that started in Baltimore County, Get Gnarly launched as a retail brand last year when it opened a small shop in the Salisbury Centre mall just in time for a 26-hour Black Friday rush. The plan was to sell through Christmas and then shut down, but a devout following keeps the store running, Leverton said. “All types of people were telling me it was their favorite shop,” he said. “I thought ‘Man, if we shut down, they’ll feel like we betrayed them.’” Leverton used to think stocking 24 T-shirts at the Salisbury store was a lot, but now that he opened shop on the Boardwalk, he keeps his friend at Tidewater Promotions busy printing tees with scenes from the Get Gnarly films. Though business at the mall slowed after Christmas, he expects the summer to bring a boom at the Boardwalk. Around 100 of his Salis-

bury customers have already stopped in the new location, Leverton said. “A lot of people know about Get Gnarly,” he said. “We never thought this would happen. It’s just one of those things that came about.” In the height of the summer, Leverton hopes to hire a few employees and open shop from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., but for now the rule is “as long as there’s people, we’ll be open,” starting around 10 a.m. Visit the store on Facebook at www.facebook.com/getgnarlyskateboarding or see more from Get Gnarly at www.getgnarly.com.

(May 16, 2014) A report released in April by CF Insights, a data and information insights organization in the community foundation field, ranked the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore in the top 100 of participating community foundations in the nation for receiving the most gifts per capita and for being one of the most active grant makers for fiscal year 2013. The national report, “Benchmarking Beyond Asset Size: Top 100 List” ranked CFES 84th for per capita gifts and 96th for most active grant makers. Gifts per capita were calculated by dividing the foundation’s total gifts by the population of the foundation’s service area, which is almost 177,000 for CFES. The report showed that the per capita gift to the Foundation in FY 2013 was $35 per person for a total of $6.2 million over the course of a year. “The generous charitable giving is an amazing reflection of the people on the Lower Shore,” said Dr. Doug Wilson, CFES president and CEO. “The generosity of our donors allows us to provide financial support for over 150 nonprofit organizations each year.” The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore serves the needs of Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset counties.

FHA takes steps to help underserved

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer

(May 16, 2014) The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) issued a news release announcing its “Blueprint for Access”. This blueprint outlines the additional steps the FHA is taking to expand access to credit for underserved borrowers.  These steps include encouraging a broader use of housing counseling and homebuyers will qualify for savings on their FHA-insured loans by completing HUD-approved housing counseling provided through independent nonprofit organizations. This counseling is aimed at improving buyers’ budgeting skills, housing decisions, and understanding of the responsibilities of homeownership. In addition, the Blueprint for Access includes enhancing FHA’s quality assurance efforts. HUD announced more information on FHA’s Quality Assurance Initiative, intended to provide greater clarity and transparency to FHA approved lenders to encourage lending to qualified borrowers across the credit spectrum. “This is a win for families, FHA, lenders, realtors and the overall market, which is why we are very excited about its potential impact, said Shaun Donovan, Secretary, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  “We want to create an environment that encourages responsible behavior and provides clear rules of the road so lenders can originate loans without fear of unanticipated consequences. We want lenders to be able focus on the quality of their processes and lend to all qualified borrowers.” Under the four-year new pilot program called Homeowners Armed with Knowledge (HAWK), new homebuyers who commit to housing counseling will qualify for tangible savings on their FHA-insured loans. The average buyer would save approximately $325 a year – or almost $9,800 over the life of their loan. FHA proposes that homeowners who complete housing counseling before signing a contract to purchase a home and who complete additional pre-closing housing counseling will receive a 50-basis point reduction in the upfront FHA mortgage insurance premium (MIP) and a 10-basis point reduction in the annual FHA MIP. After two years with no serious delinquencies, participants receive an additional 15-basis point reduction in annual MIP.  FHA stated that the HAWK program is a strong step toward integrating housing counseling into the home buying process.

Bailey, Cox grads of 14th annual MAR Academy

(May 16, 2014) Coastal Association of REALTORS has announced that Wesley Cox, director of CAR, and Don Bailey, CAR treasurer, were two of 20 graduates from the Maryland Association of REALTORS 14th annual Leadership Academy. The MAR Leadership Academy was Wesley Cox formed by REALTORS who understand the important role they play in their community and the need to enhance the leadership skills, knowledge, and competencies of fellow REALTORS interested in making a difference in their personal lives and in their communities. Don Bailey “This achievement is another example of how our members are pioneers in the real estate industry,” said Sheila Dodson, CAR executive director. “Don and Wes represent true leadership in the market, value the education and resources they expose themselves to and go out of their way to share their knowledge with fellow CAR members so the entire membership can provide expert advice and guidance to clients and the community at-large.” The MAR Leadership Academy offers an intensive curriculum designed to develop skills in leadership, communications, strategic planning, legislative and government affairs and community involvement. Classes are conducted over seven months and stress the value of professional and personal commitment to business, charitable and civic endeavors. “This program has helped me continue my pursuit to be a successful leader within the community while gaining additional leadership tools that can be applied across diverse and growing organizations,” Cox said. “The program has a focus on personal development that will not only benefit me in my daily life but will also help me lead and advance the organizations I am associated with.” “The sessions on leadership and communication were of great value to me, especially serving as a board member and planning for the future of the Coastal Association of REALTORS,” Bailey said. “Like all businesses, the way we did business in years past is no longer effective as our challenges continue to evolve due to the impact new technologies present to our industry. I learned that as an organization we need to focus our attention on connecting with our members to better serve the community.”

Approximately 3,200 custom and classic automobiles, hot rods, muscle cars, street machines and trick trucks were on display in the inlet parking lot and at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street during the 23rd annual Cruisin’ event last year.

Four-day Cruisin’ OC under way More than 3,000 custom cars, hot rods, classics and street machines on display

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) More than 3,000 custom cars, hot rods, street machines, classics and other vehicles return to Ocean City this weekend for the 24th Annual Cruisin’ Ocean City. Each year, the four-day event draws about 30,000 participants to its car shows, which started Thursday and continue through Sunday at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street and downtown at the inlet parking lot, said promoter Meredith Herbert. “After the winter that we’ve had, I think people are excited to get their cars out and come down to the car show,” Herbert said, calling the inlet the show’s “epicenter for activities, with the classic Boardwalk on one side and the car show on the other.” Highlights of the 2014 Cruisin’ event include an appearance by TV show “Counting Cars” personality “Horny Mike” Henry, aptly named for wanting to add horns to everything his builds. “’Counting Cars’ has been a pretty

popular show among the car community this year, so we were fortunate to get Mike,” Herbert said. He’ll be at the inlet Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and at the convention center’s ballroom Saturday during the same hours to sign autographs, pose for photos and discuss “Counting Cars.” Also appearing this year are stars from the movie “American Graffiti” Mackenzie Phillips and Paul Le Mat. They will be on hand for photos and autographs every day to help celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary. “American Graffiti is… a classic, hotrod movie,” Herbert said, and this will be “one of the few times that people have gotten to see Mackenzie and Paul together.” Visit the actors today at the convention center’s ballroom from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; tomorrow at the inlet from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday at the inlet from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be American Graffiti Tribute Cars inside the convention center ballroom Friday and Saturday, too, and the Friday appearance by the actors alongside the cars will make for “a unique photo opportunity,” Herbert said. Another crowning piece of the annual Cruisin’ event is its the Board-

walk parades, which take place today and Saturday starting at 8 a.m. on the boards at 27th Street, making their way south to the inlet. “The participants enjoy cruising down the Boardwalk and spectators enjoy watching,” Herbert said. “There are thousands of people that line the Boardwalk… early in the morning to watch the parade.” Usually, between 600 and 700 cars take to the boards for the procession, though Saturday’s parade will be capped around 200 due to high Boardwalk foot traffic, she said. Other highlights of the 24th Cruisin’ event in Ocean City include the Express Auctioneer’s Collector Car Auction, which will feature around 100 classic cars for sale, including a rare 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Convertible, Herbert said. Auction previews start at 9 a.m. today, with a live auction at 11 a.m. Bidders can register onsite before the event, or visit www.occollectorcars.com or call 443-807-8883 to participate. In addition to the highlight events, top national companies will showcase their products at the manufacturers midway at the inlet lot throughout the Cruisin’ event. See AMERICAN Page 51

Diagnosed a month ago, the Salisbury local is undergoing chemotherapy and the American Legion Post #166 in Ocean City and Post #64 in Salisbury are teaming up with Auxiliary Unit #166, the Sons of the American Legion and the American Legion Riders to help her through the event. The fundraiser at Post #166 on 23rd Street in Ocean City is open to the public and starts at 3 p.m. next Friday, lasting through the evening with music, a cash bar and food for sale and a slew of auction items to raise money for Nicholson. “While she worked at the Legion, everybody loved her. Nobody had anything negative to say about her,” said Rosie Garlitz, who is helping organize the event. “We’re all very, very shocked. If anyone can help in any way to lighten her burdens, we welcome their help.” Nicholson is a long-time member of the American Legion, dating back to her father’s involvement with the group. She came to Ocean City about a year ago to take over as post manager, opening and closing the building, overseeing operations from the kitchen to maintenance and getting close to those in the Legion along the way, Garlitz said. “She kept the post going,” she said. Nicholson is an “excellent, excellent employee” and “just a nice person.” The fundraiser next week includes silent auctions, Chinese auctions, and penny auctions as well as a 50/50 raffle. Just a few of the multitude of items up for auction include gift certificates to restaurants such as Hooter’s, the Greene Turtle, Sunset Grille, Phillip’s Seafood, Kirby’s, Captain Ernie’s Seafood, Waterman’s, Coins, the Shark on the Harbor, De Lazy Lizard and Mother’s Cantina. There will be golf packages for Eagle Landing and Deer Run; hotel stays; baskets including a dog basket donated by OC Pet Spa, a patriotic pack and Ravens and Steelers packages; a grill from Home Depot and a bench from Ace Hardware; prints of beach-themed paintings; jewelry; T-shirts; and a two-month membership to Powerhouse Gym. “We’re still working in this,” Garlitz said. The Legion is still accepting donations for the auctions and she hopes to secure 10 vendors by next week for the quarter auction. Those who want to help can donate See FORMER Page 53

Music festival at Macky’s Bayside

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (May 16, 2014) Six bands are scheduled to perform throughout the day, Wednesday, May 28, during Macky’s second annual “Life is Good” Music Festival. Since the inaugural festival was a success, with about 200-250 people stopping by the 54th Street establishment last year, Macky’s manager and event organizer, James Pavlik, wanted to offer it again in 2014. This year’s festival is for all ages and will feature local and regional musical acts. “It’s a kick-off to the summer party,” Pavlik said. “We want people to come, hang out and have a fun day.” Doors open at 11 a.m. Zach Bellas and the Company Band will kick off the entertainment line-up at 11:30 a.m. Naked Nation will follow at 12:30 p.m. Hot Sauce Sandwich is scheduled to take the stage at 1:30 p.m., with Dale and the Z Dubs performing at 2:30 p.m. Pasadena will rock the house beginning around 4 p.m. Ballyhoo is set to perform at 6 p.m. DJ Japancakes will keep the music flowing as he takes the stage at 10 p.m. During the all-day music extravaganza, drink specials will be available, including $3.50 Bacardi cocktails and

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family continues to be the dominant factor, but career matters also take on new importance. You might even be able to combine elements of the two in some surprising, productive way.

Ballyhoo is one of six bands who will perform during Macky's second annual "Life is Good" music festival, Wednesday, May 28.

$2.50 Miller Lite and Coors products. An ice luge will also be set up. Food will be available, as well. JJ Roth of Ocean 98 Irie Radio will host and emcee the day’s activities. Tickets are on sale now. The cost is $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Proceeds from the festival will be donated to local organizations or charities. Over the last 11 years, Macky’s owners, Pam and Macky Stansell,

have donated more than $1.4 million — a majority of which was generated from cover charges — to area charities and organizations, such as the Worcester County Humane Society, Coastal Hospice and Maryland Coastal Bays Program as well as to fund scholarships for local high school students.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A realistic view of a workplace or personal situation helps you deal with it more constructively once you know where the truth lies. Reserve the weekend for someone special.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you Leos or Leonas might be intrigued by the “sunny” prospects touted for a potential investment, be careful that you don’t allow the glare to blind you to its essential details.

A friend’s problem brings out the Virgo’s nurturing nature in full force. However, don’t go it alone. Allow others to pitch in and help share the responsibilities you’ve assumed.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision might need

to be put off until a colleague’s personal matter is resolved. Use this time to work on another business matter that you’ve been anxious to get to.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Relationships (personal or pro-

fessional) might appear to be stalled because of details that keep cropping up and that need tending to. Be patient. A path begins to clear soon.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A promotion could cause

resentment among envious colleagues. But others recognize how hard you worked to earn it, and will be there to support you if you need them.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Handling a delicate personal

matter needs both your wisdom and your warmth. Expect some setbacks, but stay with it. The outcome will more than justify your efforts.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resist the temptation to cut cor-

ners just because time is short. Best to move ahead step by step so you don’t overlook anything that might later create time-wasting complications.

Use the good will you recently earned with that well-received project to pitch your ideas for a new project. Expect some tough competition, though, from an unlikely source.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20)

BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of family extends beyond your personal life to include others to whom you generously extend your care and affection.

Sixth annual Pirate Party to benefit Lower Shore CASA

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Pirates will invade West Ocean City tonight in search of charitable plunder at the sixth annual Pirate Party to benefit Lower Shore Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA. Festivities start at 5 p.m. at Sunset Grille, where CASA volunteers will don pirate garb and sell golden treasure bars that earn buyers a chance to win gift certificates, paintings, massages, purses and other prizes, said CASA Director Brigitte Southworth. There will also be a silent auction for golf packages, Ayers Creek kayaking packages, original artwork from Patrick Henry and more, plus a 50/50 raffle, she said. Animal House will provide live music and there will be light fare and happy hour drink specials until 7 p.m. to entertain the guests, who are encouraged to come decked in their own pirate costumes. “It’s our biggest (fundraiser),” Southworth said of the annual party, which drew around 370 attendees last year and raised more than $16,000 to help recruit and train the CASA volunteers who advocate for children in court. This year, “we have more pirates than we’ve ever had, we have more

sponsors than we’ve ever had. We’re getting more people,” she said. CASA is funded by a matching grant each year, “so in order to get the money, we have to raise the money,” Southworth said. To help the volunteer-based program, which runs out of the Worcester Youth & Family Counseling Services in Berlin, meet its goal of providing advocates for every youth in the county court system, the volunteer pirates are hosting their own fundraisers this year, Southworth said. Volunteers undergo intensive interviews and screening before they are trained to work with abused or neglected youth making their way through the courts, she said. They are finger printed and must be cleared by Social Services before taking the 35-hour training course that includes court observation and the national CASA curriculum, she said. In all, CASA served 66 youth last year and “this year, it’s going to be more,” Southworth said. CASA asks attendees to give a $15 donation at the door for entry into the Pirate Party from 5-8 p.m. tonight, May 16, at the Sunset Grille in West Ocean City.

Byron and Laura Arenella are dressed for the high seas during the pirate-themed fundraiser for Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services at Sunset Grille last year.

The “golden treasure” candy bars cost $5 each, or $20 for five and one out of every four of five bars holds a prize, Southworth said. CASA started in Worcester County in 2002 and has helped all but two children who went through the courts until recently, when “many more” entered the system, Southworth said. “Our goal is to serve every child that’s in the court system in Worcester County,” she said.

Box 3024, Ocean City, Md. 21843. The fundraiser for Nicholson starts at 3 p.m. next Friday, May 23, at the American Legion Synepuxent Post #166 on 23rd Street and Philadelphia Avenue. It will run until around 7 p.m. and everyone is invited to attend.

Ocean City Restaurant Week ends Sunday Twenty-four establishments offering fixed-price menus at $10, $20, $30 and $40

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) Diners still have three days to take advantage of special deals at more than 20 resort restaurants participating in Ocean City’s spring Restaurant Week. The eateries are offering special, fixed-price menus at $10, $20, $30 and $40 during the two-week event, which ends Sunday, May 18. “It’s a win-win for diners and the restaurants,” said Susan Jones, executive director of the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association. “The whole premise of the promotion is to encourage diners to go out at a time that’s not too busy around here to stir up business, and at the same time, provide diners with deals.” “It’s a good chance for people to come get a deal, get a full belly, and try some new food,” said Garvey Heiderman, general manager at The Hobbit on 81st Street. One of 24 Restaurant Week participants, the upscale eatery will dish up a “three-for-30” dinner menu every night, giving diners three courses for $30 featuring the restaurant’s most

popular dishes, plus a few new items. The Hobbit has offered a Restaurant Week menu every spring for the last four years and the event draws new faces each year, Heiderman said. Restaurant Week is “most definitely” a boost to business in the early stretch of the summer season, Jones said. “Typically the restaurants that create the most interesting menus are the ones who do the best — and the ones who offer the best deals,” she said. Chef and Owner of Jules Restaurant on 118th Street Adam Sander has been participating in Restaurant Week since its inception and creates a unique menu for the event. His three-for-30 dinner menu this time includes appetizers like “Almond Joy” shrimp encrusted in toasted almonds and topped with a coconut cream sauce and New Zealand lamb pops alongside entrees such as shrimp scampi, fillet mignon and crab cakes. Jules will offer the Restaurant Week menu every night, with a “bonus bite” for early birds, who will get a complimentary glass of wine with their meals if they are seated before 6 p.m. “Its one of the best weeks of the year,” Sander said. “We love it. We’ve been proud to help support them

Rackliffe House opens for season, May 18 ‘Native Americans: First Contact on Lower Delmarva’ new exhibit featured in ‘14 (May 16, 2014) Rackliffe House, a beautifully restored 1740s merchantplanter’s Georgian home overlooking Assateague Island and Sinepuxent Bay, outside of Berlin, opens for the season on Sunday, May 18, International Museums Day. New this year is an exhibition, “Native Americans: First Contact on Lower Delmarva,” on loan from Salisbury University’s Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture. The exhibition examines – through images and first-hand accounts — how Native Americans lived and worked at the time of first contact with Europeans. It also depicts ways in which Native American life changed shortly thereafter. Docents will interpret life on the 18th-century coastal plantation through artifacts on display in the kitchen, spinning room, and children’s room in the main house as well as in the original milk house. Children can enjoy an interpretive activity booklet for use inside the house as well as outdoor 18th-century games (the latter are scheduled for the second Saturday of each

can interpret local life before and after the arrival of the Rackliffes, and get kids hooked on history through

activities designed by our incredible team of docents,” said Joan Jenkins, Trust president. Rackliffe House will be open every Tuesday and Thursday from 1-4 p.m. as well as the second Saturday of each month from 1-4 p.m. through October. The three acres of grounds are open to hikers every day from dawn to dusk, and all activities outside of Rackliffe House are free. To enter Rackliffe House and tour the exhibitions, visitors must pay an entrance fee of $5/adult and $2/child ages 4 through 12 (age 3 and under are admitted for free). The last house tour begins at 3:30 p.m. Entrance fees are critical in continuing the preservation of this historic property. To reach Rackliffe House, turn into Marsh View Lane, off Stephen Decatur Road (Route 611), at the Assateague National Seashore Visitors Center. On opening days, visitors may drive a half-mile down Tom Patton Lane and park in the designated area near Rackliffe House. On nonopening days, visitors are asked to park in the visitor center lot and hike or bike the half-mile trail along Tom Patton Lane.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Black-Eyed Susan perfect cocktail for event By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (May 16, 2014) The infamous running of the Preakness always takes place on the third Saturday in May at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. It is not quite as steeped in tradition as the Kentucky Derby, but its rich heritage is a bouquet of pride. If one has the pleasure of attending the prestigious event, special protocol is mandatory. Neiman Marcus is on the menu for a glorious dress and matching hat. If you decide to purchase perfume, do not be surprised to see a small bowl of espresso beans. Smelling the coffee beans between perfumes is like eating sorbet among courses. Both help distinguish the latest flavor or scent from the

original one. Transportation is the next consideration. Splurging for a limousine is well worth the money–all things considered. Of course wine and rail drinks are customary, but a carafe of Black-Eyed Susan is not only delightful but quite appropriate for the festivities. The recipe for the official drink of the notorious horse race is taken directly from the Preakness Web site: 1 ½ ounce Finlandia Vodka, ½ ounce St. Germain, 2 ounces pineapple juice, ¼ ounce lime juice, ¾ ounce orange juice, and garnish with fresh orange slices. Mouth-

watering and refreshing reiterates the theme of the renowned Black-Eyed Susan. Once the black, stretch “carriage” arrives, you are escorted to the Director’s Room (by invitation only). First time betters are considered lucky, so do not belittle their choice; even if it is based on such idiosyncrasies as the as the “colors” or “cuteness” of the jockey. The sport of the rich showcases the majestic beauty of the animals and the athleticism of the jockeys. Watching the event on television certainly has its advantages, but modern technology cannot absorb the up close and personal encounter of the glistening muscles stride for stride and the thunder of the hooves as they fly by.

Preakness trivia sweetens the pot. The Woodlawn Vase was created by Tiffany and Company in 1860 and is presented to the winning Preakness owner. An assessment in 1983 of $1 million ranks it as the most prestigious trophy in sports. Winners were awarded possession of the vase until the following Preakness. However, that custom ceased in 1953 when A.G. Vanderbilt’s Native Dancer won but the wife did not want the responsibility of the vase’s safekeeping. Now the winning owner is awarded a $30,000 sterling replica on a permanent basis while the original is on display at The Baltimore Museum of Art and brought to Pimlico under tight security for the anSee CREAM on Page 61

Flights available in B25 Bomber during air show

(May 16, 2014) During the Ocean City Air Show this year, the public will be able to do more than just watch the planes from the beach. They will be able to fly in a WW II B25 Bomber. The Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation is offering the chance to experience what it was like for flight crews during WW II on board “Panchito,” a B25 Mitchell Bomber. The flights will be out of the Ocean City Airport and will be available June 1215. The cost is a $425 donation to the Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation. “This is a rare and unique opportunity to be a part of the Air Show this year,” said Bryan Lilley, president of the Ocean City Air Show. “This plane will be flying over the beach both Saturday and Sunday during the Air Show and we are excited that visitors will have a chance to experience it that week from inside the aircraft now as well. What a great addition to the air show.” To learn more about Panchito and the role of the B25s in World War II, visit www.b25.ocairshow.com. To reserve a seat on Panchito call 443-458-8926 or e-mail panchitoB25@aol.com. The plane can take up to five people during the 30minute flight. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Air show officials announced that two new performers will take to the skies over Ocean City. Gary Ward in the MX-2 and Greg Connell in the Pitts Model 12 will each perform individually and then go head-to-head. To volunteer for the Ocean City Air Show, go to www.OCAirShow.com and click on the Volunteer Tab. Volunteers are stationed throughout the air show and help with ticket collection, VIP areas, vendors and even at the airport. Advanced pricing for tickets with a 15-percent discount, ends Sunday, May 18. That’s up to $50 in savings on a two-day VIP Skybox ticket. Visit www.OCAirShow.com for more details.

Washington bestowed the name because the regular line of troops (the Maryland Line) served courageously in many Revolutionary War battles. Cream of crab soup is simple to make but a few pointers equates superlative results. Shallots, garlic, and seafood stock gives depth. The combination of half and half and heavy whipping cream incorporates a luxurious texture. The piece de resistance is sherry; just a touch elevates the soup to a level of sophistication. Maryland cream of crab is adored by all. Garnish with a touch of crabmeat, paprika, and parsley for contrast. Whether your favorite horse wins is up to fate, but Maryland cream of crab soup is sure to take first place.

Ingredients:

1 stick unsalted butter 2 teaspoons minced garlic 2 teaspoons minced shallots 1 quart half and half 2 cups heavy whipping cream 2 cups seafood stock 1 cube of Knorr chicken bullion ½ cup sherry several pinches white pepper slurry (2 teaspoons each of flour and water) 1 pound crab meat fresh parsley, finely chopped several pinches of paprika 1. In a small pan, saute garlic and shallots in butter over low heat for seven minutes. 2. Puree mixture in a blender.

3. Transfer garlic mixture to a pot. 4. Add half and half, cream, stock, sherry, chicken bullion, and white pepper. Turn heat to medium-high and gradually bring to a soft boil. Add the slurry (flour and water) to help thicken the mixture. Constantly stir the soup. 5. Fold in crab meat (minus 2 tablespoons) and continue cooking for two minutes. 6. Remove from heat. Garnish each portion of soup with a touch of parsley, pinch of paprika, and a half tablespoon of crab meat Serve 4 Secret ingredient: competition. “Competition is the keen cutting edge of business, always shaving at the costs.” – Henry Ford

Surf Swap and paddleboard races scheduled for June 1 Activities planned for adults and children during event

Paddleboarders participate in the 2013 event on the bay behind Fager’s Island. The 2014 Surf Swap and paddleboard races will take place June 1.

Ants find way into Kemp’s treats Continued from Page 62 started dredging the ditch they made a big dent in the local leprechaun's brand new waterproof ditch headquarters. Dee and Lou Reich have been spotted out celebrating Lou's 2006 first hole-inone. Delaware's local Elvis, John Sweet, and his sweetie, Marie, same deal. They've met Elvis “LIVE,” wasting away in downtown Selbyville. His hips were splintered and he had a big wart on his nose. Whoops, I almost blew it. That was his nose.

Folks I found around town: Ray and Carlee Archer, Gary and Martha Kinsey, Vince and Nadine Ryan, Dick and Kathy Kahn, George and Joan Saur, Del Leutner and Nick and Jane Bartolomeo. Easter and Mothers Day gifts upped the ante on the return of the ants. When I opened the door of my Fibber McGee closet I found a half eaten marshmallow bunny being used as an ant maternity ward.

Free postpones cross-country walk Temporary break ‘due to circumstances currently beyond our control,’ he says

By Nancy Powell Staff Writer (May 16, 2014) After just one month of travel, the comedian who planned to walk from Ocean City to San Francisco is not laughing. Jeff Free said last Thursday that he was temporarily postponing his planned six-month adventure. He wrote online that the postponement was “due to circumstances currently beyond our control.” He told Ocean City Today that he planned to resume his walk someday. “When I can, I will continue my walk from the Ohio border where I stopped,” he said. “Too much going on and didn’t make sense to me to not walk.” Just three days earlier, he told Ocean City Today he had to change his plans because his knees hurt. He said he would ride in the van instead of hoofing it. “My knees are not cooperating with my intentions,” said Free, 49, of Pueblo West, Colo., on April 28. “I am continuing the trip in a much different manner. I will walk some in some areas.” Free started his walk on April 1 See PLAN Page 66

Plan to pick up trash while walking clean up its act. So he planned his cross-country trip to perform comedy, to pick up trash and to spread awareness of the need to stop littering. He was able to make his dream of the trip a reality because of his wife’s success in a marketing business selling healthcare products. He quit his job in a steel mill in February and starting planning his trip, which he expected to take six months. After walking 20 miles per day, five days per week, Free planned to end his trip Oct. 1 in San Francisco. His Web site, www.keepoffcomedian.com, had his walking schedule and video blogs, posted when he was in an area to get adequate Internet reception. The walking schedule was removed last Thursday when he postponed his trip. Since starting the adventure, he and his daughter spent one night in a hotel, one night with friends and one night in a tent at a state park. The rest of the nights were spent in the van, which he had outfitted with bunk beds. Free said last week, before he postponed the trip, that he would still pick up trash and try to raise awareness of the trash issues. Originally, he had planned to celebrate his 50th birthday on Route 50 in Hutchinson, Kansas, when he would have walked 50 percent of his trip.

His revised plan was to celebrate his 50th birthday at the end of Route 50 in Sacramento on June 30 and then go into San Francisco to perform a comedy show that would be broadcast live on the Internet. His latest plan is to broadcast a comedy show live on the Internet on his 50th birthday from Pueblo West. Before he left Ocean City, he said he would return to perform a free comedy show. He also wanted to make a return trip to Assateague Island National Seashore, this time with his wife and son. Two weeks ago, Free said he still plans to return to the place where his journey began. “Absolutely,” he said. Free also said he was “fine” with his change of plans before postponing his trip. “I refuse to push myself to the point of hurting myself permanently and not being able to enjoy hiking later. “I still feel like I have and am continuing to accomplish something good, just not how I had had it planned in my head,” he said. The lesson to share, he said, “is to at least try to accomplish high goals. Even if you don’t quite meet them, you will still end up accomplishing a lot more a than if you never even try.”

(May 16, 2014) Nashville-based country recording artist Ronnie McDowell will perform two shows in West Ocean City as part of his ongoing national tour. Joining McDowell for this concert will be his band, featuring his son, Ronnie Dean McDowell Jr. and a special guest artist, Baltimore’s own Ronnie Dove. McDowell reached stardom in 1977 after the death of Elvis Presley with his self-penned song, “The King Is Gone.” Following that hit, he signed with CBS Records Epic and had a string of hit singles including “Older Women,” “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation,” “Watching Girls Go By,” “Personally,” “You’ve Made A Wanted Man Of Me,” and remakes of “Unchained Melody” and the Conway Twitty hit, “It’s Only Make Believe.” McDowell is currently signed with Curb Records and has sold millions of records worldwide in his lengthy career. He will perform two shows at The OC Jamboree in West Ocean City, Friday, May 16, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Ticket cost $35. They may be obtained by calling The OC Jamboree box office at 410213-7581 or online at www.ocjam.com. All seating is reserved, theaterstyle and strictly limited on a first come basis.

Continued from Page 65 from the Boardwalk at North Division Street. With a sign strapped to his back promoting his adventure and carrying a pointed metal rod, topped with a microphone held on with Duck tape, for picking up trash, he headed toward the Route 50 bridge on his way to California. A couple of hours later, he was still picking up trash in West Ocean City, but then he picked up his pace and made it nearly to Salisbury before nightfall. Then he started picking up trash to fill one bag per day, putting it in a public trashcan when full. His daughter, Tiffany, who celebrated her 25th birthday on April 28, drove the van. Its exterior is emblazoned with a map of the United States and lettering that reads, “Jeff Free is Walking Coast to Coast Picking up Trash & Performing Free Comedy Shows.” It was Tiffany’s job to arrange the free comedy shows he planned to perform and to set up interviews with media. He performed one show in Maryland and had four additional ones booked. Years earlier, he had been a comedian who told off-color jokes. Then, after the birth of his son who is now 7, he cleaned up his act, so to speak, and then got the idea to ask America to

Commentary

Page 93 Feds fear fish terror off coast

Springfest was good testing start OUR OPINION

At its recently held Springfest, Ocean City did test demographics through the use of an iPad touch screen. About 100 people took part in the survey. It was hardly surprising that of the participants, the numbers skewed to an older demographic with either local residency or from the Baltimore metro area. Tourist numbers that can be gleaned by the government can be extremely helpful. But we agree with Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan that this sampling isn’t enough, and that visitors who stay, eat and vacation all over the resort should have an opportunity to participate in the demographic survey. Springfest, it can be said, can almost be predictably skewed to an older demographic. Youth, college students and perhaps young working adults who are using what funds they have to pay for food, lodging and gas might not have the discretionary income to purchase items at the Springfest’s bountiful crafts area. Also we found it interesting that the older demographic of Springfest responded that they had made more than 20 visits to Ocean City in the past five years. And, of course, they indicated on the survey that more events like a Springfest hold interest for them. So we’d like to suggest as the mayor has that this was perhaps a good test beginning, but it’s far from complete. There is such an age diversity visiting the resort every year that the job wouldn’t be done, and the resort wouldn’t have the information it needed if didn’t consider the demo study a work in progress. The season is young, we’ve just emerged from a difficult and cold winter, and we’re certain that there will be plenty of demographic study potential in the coming here in the coming weeks.

THE PUBLIC EYE

By Stewart Dobson

Just not fair for a young child EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

During dinner, my daughter asks that her husband, and their little son tell what their day at work and school was like. Typically my son-in-law talks about a class he’s teaching. My daughter talks about raising funds for incoming arts programs, and their four-year-old talks about the friends he played with that day at school. Last Monday, however, the talk was different. My grandson said that during “sharing circle,” which happens each day at the start of nursery school, his friend told us “my daddy died.” My grandson’s friend is also four, and he has a 7-year-old sister. My daughter and son-in-law, who is a rabbi, were stunned in their kitchen seats. DeDe, my daughter, asked for her little boy to repeat what he said, and he did in a very quiet voice. Her son finished dinner and went in to another room to “play cars” as he calls it with his toys. My daughter and her husband sat at the table, not knowing what to do. DeDe would learn that the little boy’s father, an Israeli, who worked as a charitable fundraiser, and who was considered one of New Haven, Ct.’s best youth soccer coaches, threw himself in front of an oncoming train. My daughter related to me that the man had been having difficulty dealing with depression. We then both talked on the phone about how even the faces of his wife and two wonderful children weren’t enough to influence this man to get help. My daughter told me that it has sometimes been said that especially with Israeli men, seeking help for a psychiatric issue is seen as a sign of weakness.

By Phil Jacobs

My son-in-law, a former Israeli Defense Forces artillery soldier, still hasn’t been able to share what he saw and had to do in conversations with any of his family members. Additionally, when news comes on TV about battles around the world, he can’t watch them. He especially stays away from movies involving war. He is a clergy member and has counseled people, giving so much of himself to them. Yet, when it comes to the daily battles he fought as a soldier against terrorism in Israel, he’ll have trouble forgetting what he saw. As for the small boy in my grandson’s class who was back to school just a couple of days after his daddy’s death, I told my grandson that I wanted him to pick out one of his favorite toy cars and trucks and make it a present to his friend. Most importantly, I told my grandson that tomorrow at school he should hug his friend and tell him “I love you.” How this little boy, his sister and mother are going to move ahead is difficult to consider. According to my daughter, the community there is a close one and has already closed the family inside a virtual nest of love. I hope that the very therapy that their father needed will be part of this family’s life as it moves forward. I cannot imagine how these two little children are interpreting what just happened. And if you read this, and you know for sure that you need some help, I encourage you to find those resources through Worcester County or wherever you are. Use your favorite search engine, you’ll find help. Jumping in front of a train can’t ever be the right answer. Now my grandson’s friend is going to have lived a life of figuring all of this out. That’s just not fair.

As a few people and a humorless person in the Baltimore Federal Aviation Administration office know, I have a miniature helicopter with a camera attached. Some people would call it a drone, I would call it a model aircraft, while those who manufacture, sell, support or lobby for the legal use of these things would call it an Unassisted Aircraft System, which is a misnomer because it doesn’t fly by itself while I nap at home in front of the TV as the dogs lick the Cheeto dust off my shirt. It’s not as if my wife can revive me from my baseballgame-induced coma and ask, “Where’s the drone?” and I answer, “Beats me, it left an hour ago to play with its friends.” Nevertheless, I have been informed by the FAA person in Baltimore that he will fine me $11,000 per incident should he catch me flying this thing for profit, as in taking video and pictures and getting paid for it. Did I mention that this person is without humor? That, however, is exactly what he said he would do after someone ratted me out to the FAA as a drone-flying threat to life as we know it. The thing is, the FAA’s ban on the commercial use of miniature camera ‘copters, etc. has already been thrown out by one judge and the appeal isn’t looking much better. But even more interesting is that flying a model aircraft fitted with a camera and not charging for photos is legal in most instances, suggesting that money is not only the root of all evil but a flight hazard as well. In other words, it’s a safety issue if you fly for business purposes, but is safe if you’re just having fun and not strafing people, which makes perfect sense if you also believe that the Easter Bunny makes jelly beans in a special way that remains classified for See MONEY Page 94


Letters Seeking other solutions

Editor, Monday night is the second and final opportunity for anyone to request further budget cuts. Although the tax rate was reduced to $0.4704, by a desperate and insulting 16 percent of one penny, the effects are, at best, superficial, due to a lack of transparency, accuracy and simplicity. From the city manager’s introduction (at $0.4804, a full penny higher) throughout the departmental budget hearings and the May 5th First Reading, strategies have severely lacked accuracy, transparency and simplicity (whether accidental or intentional). Inflated revenue estimates, delayed salary increases and position starts, lavish pension benefits and other bloated compensations are the primary ways that the figures are being manipulated, to accomplish any semblance of a “balanced” budget. These “smoke and mirrors” solutions are a sure recipe for disaster, just as certainly as if we were to manage your household budgets this way. For these reasons, the only truly viable solutions involve cutting spending, – not increasing revenues (taxes and fees). One of many viable (and researched, justifiable) solutions made so far, was to cut the number of police officers in the off-season, proportionate to population. Other solutions are still welcome and encouraged. This is not about blame. It’s not about taxpayers versus government. It’s about the very survival, sustainability and longevity of this entire city, including each and every part of its infrastructure, especially its people, – both worker-bees and payer-bees. As always, I welcome and encourage all replies, whether in agreement, disagreement or indifference, and can be reached at 410-430-0535 or noel55@comcast.net. Ellie Diegelmann Ocean City

Is bus fare fair?

Editor, The Ocean City Town Council has successfully adopted the fiscal year 2015 town budget after long thought and discussion. Most interested parties have had their input to the process as provided through the budget hearings conducted by the council. Let us not forget those among us who exist on the fringes of society, but are still entitled to their God-given rights under the U.S. Constitution. I refer to the low wage earners, retirees, handicapped or disabled, children and youths, etc. Yes, they are here, visible or not, dependent on our collective willingness as a community to ensure and protect their rights, even when they may not be aware of the threat or able to state their objections. The Council has to some extent achieved a budget balance

to the editor

by reducing bus service. Last year, the council eliminated the long provided overnight service during the winter months. At the time, one council member expressed reservations about the action but observed that since no one had come forward to object, he would go along. I had hoped that our elected officials would have the courage of their convictions, not relying on the personal plea’s of those affected to stand for them. This year, the council approved budget, provides for the elimination of the $1 one-way bus fare, it will now cost $3 to board the bus, period. One council member opined that, “$3 is a good deal, even taxi rates are going up.” Friends, people who spend $1 each way for bus service don’t ride in taxicabs. Are we to turn our heads on those we might not wish to consider in our lives and pretend they don’t exist or do we stand with them and support them even if they don’t know that we exist. During budget discussions, several other council members and town staff justified the new one rate approach ($3) as a good deal. It might be noted that some of these same people enjoy the use of town-owned vehicles for their own transportation needs. But, I digress, what in heavens name does it hurt to preserve the current $1, one-way bus fare for those among us who only have need for this type of service? Joe Moran Ocean City

Taxed to support outsiders

May 16, 2014

Ocean City Today

Editor, I believe our [OPA] Board of Directors and general manager should be looking for ways and means to increase revenues outside of increases in our assessment and amenity fees. Here are a few ideas, some of which have been suggested in the past: Our current liquor license for the Beach Club only permits liquor sales to OPA members and their guests. In the six or seven years since the Ocean Club next to our Beach Club closed, OPA has allowed tens of thousands of dollars to slip through our fingers. By not modifying our liquor license we failed to take advantage of that void and promote the Beach Club and sell liquor and beer to the general public. There is still an opportunity to do this now, before the opening of the restaurant located in the condo next door to the Beach Club; they will surely get a liquor license good for general public sales which will consequently diminish our prospects. I know that the employees at the Beach Club are very diligent in checking OPA identifications before selling liquor. However, one misstep could put our current license in jeopardy. Which is just another to reason to change the license. Most of us are aware that the owner of Ocean Downs also owns Delaware Park

Casino. Delaware Park Casino has a golf club and it packages golf and partners with local restaurants and hotels to promote their operation. Here we are with all kinds of amenities, restaurants, golf, tennis, swimming etc. sitting right next door to our good neighbor Ocean Downs. We are missing the boat by not partnering with them to promote both of our facilities. I guess we are waiting for Ocean City to show us the way. We better not wait too long. There are Ocean City restaurants that have already jointly participated promoting their facilities. Many would say that outsiders (non OPA members) that use our amenities are subsidizing us. I believe that in many cases it is just the opposite. Our assessments are subsidizing the outsiders. Our diversified recreation programs are good examples. The additional fees outsiders pay for the use of our amenities, classes. teams, camps, trips etc. are a mere pittance compared to the actual cost. To their credit, the Board recognizes that, and they have requested a recreation grant from the county. But it is not enough. I think we need to establish just what the actual cost is per individual use of the facilities and charge outsiders accordingly. It may be OK to use our assessments to subsidize fees and operating costs for OPA members. But in my opinion, it is not OK for our assessments to subsidize outsiders. We are not a municipality and our HOA was established solely for the good and welfare of our members. In effect our assessments are being taxed to support outsiders as though we are a municipality. There are no provisions that I know of in our founding and governing documents pertaining to outsiders. Norman Katz Ocean Pines

Are we looking at tax increase?

Editor, This year’s county budget, for fiscal year 2015, lists proposed expenditures of $184.77 million. But the expected revenue for the coming year only comes to $176.4 million. Now the commissioners created the Budget Stabilization Fund years ago when the economy started to go south, and its express purpose is to supplement the budget until the economy and the housing market recover. The predicted revenue estimates for FY15 already include $6.4 million from the Budget Stabilization Fund. So this year’s budget borrows $6.4 million from the Budget Stabilization Fund, and there’s still an $8 million deficit in proposed expenditures. The multi-year projections from fiscal year 2013 estimate that the Budget Stabilization fund will be depleted by FY17. The year the Budget Stabilization Fund runs out, it is estimated the county will need an additional $2.8 million and a $12 million deficit is projected for FY18.

Page 94 Money root of all evil; flight hazard as well THE PUBLIC EYE

Continued from Page 93 obvious reasons. That said, I am now a hobbyist who will happily take videos and pictures of whatever anyone wants for fun and at no charge, unless, of course, it’s a military installation, an airport, is in the direct flight path of someone who does charge, or might involve me being captured and beaten for violating the airspace of unfriendly nations. I figure the real issue is not necessarily safety anyway, but that the FAA, being about as speedy and maneuverable as a blimp in a ballroom, has yet to decide how much to charge for a permit. Many parts of the county budget are out of the commissioners’ control. They can’t cut the schools state-mandated maintenance of effort, nor can they control escalating healthcare costs as a result of the new health care mandate. So here’s a few questions: In a few short years the county’s Budget Stabilization Fund will be gone. Will the economy and housing market have recovered by then? If not, will County Commissioners be able to cut the budget by $12 million in FY18? Since spending has continued to rise each year, I suspect the “solution” to this rapidly approaching financial problem will be increased property taxes. Let’s not forget almost 67 percent of county revenue comes from property taxes. The important question is, can the county afford to continue to increase spending? Maybe they can get away with it this year, but you don’t have to look very far down the road to see we are headed for trouble. All Worcester County residents are experiencing rises in cost of living expenses. We can’t afford a property tax increase. Please contact your County Commissioner and urge them to exercise fiscal responsibility in regards to this year’s budget. The county will not be able to continue deficit spending without raising taxes on hard working residents in the very near future. Last Tuesday’s night’s budget hearing was filled with people, mainly teachers, asking for more money. County Commissioners need to hear from those of us that want them to cut spending. It’s not a question of what people deserve, it’s a question of what we can afford. Laura Dover Pocomoke City
