BACK IN BUSINESS Hurricane Sandy did its worst to the Ocean City fishing pier downtown, but after months of repair work, the installation of pilings and planking, the resort icon was scheduled to see the first fishing line cast from its deck Friday morning in a re-dedication ceremony. Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan

was given the honor of heaving the initial hook, line and sinker. The fishing pier has been a fixture in the Ocean City landscape since it was completed in 1907. It is approximately 500 feet long, and provides ample space for recreational fishing.

Park skates past closures Faced with huge crowd, council backs down on reduction in operations during off-season ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 24, 2013) The Ocean City Council conceded this week to return $21,000 of funding to the city’s Ocean Bowl Skate Park, which had been scheduled for additional closures this winter, although the town will still be forming a committee to investigate the park’s usage and possible future service cuts. But the relief decision came only after a lengthy, politically motivated debate between elected officials over two appropriations that would have otherwise been a slam-dunk. Both were minor amounts of money for causes that directly benefitted at-risk children, the trump card of budgetary pinochle. City Hall was packed Monday night

with opponents of the skate park’s closure, first among which was Mike Durkin, the Worcester Prep senior and avid skateboarder whose online petition has garnered almost 500 signatures. A sense of impending popular shame, however, seemed to have gripped the council even before Durkin

approached the microphone to speak during the public comments section of this week’s meeting. “I’m going to let you speak, but I want you to know that we are working on it,” said Council President Lloyd Martin. “I think everybody was happy at the last meeting when they left … and I was hoping you would be on that committee.” At its previous session, the council consented to form a subcommittee for skate park usage that would meet in the coming months to evaluate the closures of the facility planned for 2014. However, the council declined to go so far as to include funding in the 20132014 fiscal year budget to keep the facility’s operating hours at their current level. “We’re just going to push it down the road a little bit,” Durkin said Monday night. “If it’s closed in the budget, it’ll probably stay closed.” The move was also heavily criticized by Councilman Brent Ashley, who said See COUNCIL on Page 3A

Up in smoke Ramadan bros. taken to NY for cig smuggling NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 24, 2013) The 303-page indictment of two West Ocean City brothers and their associates in an alleged multi-million-dollar cigarette smuggling scheme would seem to cover virtually everything. But the one thing that law enforcement officials do not know and are concerned about is where the money went. Meanwhile, Basel Ramadan, 42, an Oyster Harbor resident and his brother, Samir, also of Oyster Harbor, were extradited to New York this week.

Council debates value of committee without financial assurance Continued from Page 1A

that the city should not be removing the expenses from its budget sheet if the planned subcommittee was going to commit to include them later on. This week, Ashley continued to pressure his colleagues by offering a new alternative: re-routing $14,333 in funding from the CRICKET Center to the Ocean Bowl. The CRICKET Center is a countybacked nonprofit that advocates for sexually abused children. This year, however, was the first in which the center requested direct public funding to the tune of a $14,333 grant from the county that was to be matched by the city. The county, facing its own budget problems, declined any funding to the center, and thus none would come from the city either, leaving an excess appropriation. As much as Ashley supported it, his opponents on the council resisted the idea of funding the restoration of skate park hours before the committee had done its work. “Whether or not [the funding] is in there, if the committee comes back with a recommendation, that’s going to be the direction the council takes,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “This council has worked very hard to enhance the options for skaters … I think we took a big step in allowing it on the Boardwalk.”

“I said we would leave the park jority to subsidize the Uptown Beach open,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic, Bash and Ocean City Bikini Parade. “If I was a betting woman, I would who had originally motioned for the subcommittee, “but bring that [recom- bet right now that the skate park is mendation] back to the mayor and going to be open, but we’ll be able to substantiate that [after the committee council and fund it at that time.” “If you think that I’m going to sit has met],” said Council Secretary Mary through meetings to come to a consen- Knight. “This year is going to be a pivotal year sus with a group and then turn around and say we don’t have to money to do it for us when we have a lot of new visitors,” Knight said. … it’s ridiculous,” “Something like Mitrecic said. “We haven’t done a study painting the solid But Ashley, before for the skate park and waste trucks for having previously $20,000 [which questioned it’s been open as-is all these was cut from the whether the counyears.

It has nothing to voting with the council’s previous ma- do with it being the CRICKET Center.”

Audience reaction, including rousing applause or some of Ashley’s comments, indicated that the park’s supporters were not comfortable with just the compromise committee, but wanted planned funding. “I kind of have to agree that they would have more faith if it [the funding] was left in and discussed by the committee than if it was left out and discussed,” Meehan said at one point. “It ought to be earmarked so that they don’t have to come back here every week to safeguard that money,” agreed Councilwoman Margaret Pillas. Ashley then moved to allocate $14,333 to the Ocean Bowl, which would cover most of the park’s slashed expenses if one includes the additional $6,400 in projected revenue from annual pass purchasers who may not have bought passes if the park was closed. Mitrecic, who had previously contended that the lost pass revenue was overstated, requested that the allocation be for the full $21,000 operating cost. The council approved the motion with five members in favor. Knight and Councilman Dennis Dare abstained from the vote, saying that they would rather wait to decide until the entire budget was discussed during its first formal reading later in the meeting. “I never thought we would close it anyway,” Meehan said.

Destination of $10 million in illicit proceeds yet unknown Continued from Page 1A

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, Basel Ramadan was the leader of the smuggling ring. A poster, entitled Operation Tobacco Road, released by the Office of the Attorney General of New York shows him as the boss. Samir Ramadan is pictured as the treasurer. During the raid by Homeland Security officers and New York authorities of Basel Ramadan’s house last Wednesday, police found approximately $1.4 million in cash, some of it in black trash bags. Various items, including three handguns, were removed from the houses and vehicles were taken away. Both men were arrested and taken to the Worcester County jail where they were held without bail. On Wednesday, Warden Garry Mumford said the brothers were still awaiting extradition New York. The indictment said the scheme involved the purchase of cartons of cigarettes from a wholesaler in Virginia, ostensibly to sell them at Virginia businesses. That ruse allowed them to buy the cigarettes at a tax rate of 30 cents per pack. The cartons of cigarettes would then be transported to storage facilities in Delaware. A storage facility in Dagsboro was

raided last week. It had no sign indicating any type of business and its windows were covered so no one could see inside, where police found thousands of cartons of cigarettes bearing Virginia tax stamps. An apartment above the Subway on Sunset Drive in Ocean City was also raided last Wednesday. Although the Ramadans own that Subway, they do not own the other Subways in Ocean City, Ocean Pines and Berlin area. Adel Abuzahrieh, 42, of Brooklyn, was identified by the Office of the Attorney General as the transporter for the group. He allegedly drove several times a week from Brooklyn to Dagsboro, where he would exchange tens of thousands of dollars in cash for the cartons of cigarettes. Then he would transport the cigarettes, approximately 20,000 cartons per week, to New Jersey to hand them over to nine men identified as distributors. Those men would take the cigarettes to storage facilities in New York City. Four men identified as resellers would take the cigarettes to a myriad of Arab markets and grocery stores in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, where they would sell them for See DEFENDANTS on Page 6A

huge profits, according to the Attorney General’s Office. Some of the cigarettes ended up in stores in Schenectady and Albany. A press release from the Attorney General’s Office also said the Ramadans deposited “more than $55 million from their untaxed cigarette sales into small financial institutions in and around Ocean City” and used that money to buy more cigarettes to sell illegally. They also allegedly generated more than $10 million in profits from the illegal enterprise. One of the alleged distributors, Yousef Odeh, 52, reportedly had ties with Omar Abdel-Rahman, the blind cleric serving a life sentence for a conspiracy to blow up landmarks in New York City. According to the indictment, Basel Ramadan had a telephone conversation on Feb. 1 with Odeh during which Odeh ordered more than 30,000 untaxed cigarettes from him. One of the alleged re-sellers, Muaffaq Askar, is suspected of giving weapons to Rashid Baz, who was convicted of shooting up a van carrying Yeshiva students across the Brooklyn Bridge in 1994. One student was killed. “The association of some of the sus-

pects in this case to the Ari Halbestram’s killer, the Blind Sheik and a top Hamas official concerns us,” said New York Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly. “While it hasn’t been established yet where the illicit proceeds ended up, we’re concerned because similar schemes have been used in the past to help fund terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah.” According to Schneiderman’s office, the year-long investigation by the Attorney General’s Organized Crime Task Force and the New York City Police Department, with assistance from Homeland Security Investigations, revealed the smuggling ring laundered more than $55 million in illegal proceeds and dodged at least $80 million in New York state taxes. During the investigation, law enforcement seized more than 65,000 forged New York tax stamps that had not been affixed to packs of cigarettes and nearly 20,000 cartons of untaxed cigarettes. They also seized more than $200,000 from suspects located in New York City. All of the suspects, charged with enterprise corruption, money laundering and related tax crimes, are facing up to 8 1/3 to 25 years in prison.

First reading of budget passed Revenue generated by additional paid parking most contentious item ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 24, 2013) The Ocean City Council passed the first reading of the city’s 2013-2014 fiscal year budget this week, with the most contentious financial item again being the revenue generated by additional paid parking in selected areas of the resort. As they have for several weeks, visibly aggravated elected officials fought back against residents of the Ocean Place condominium on 146th Street, where electronic parking meters – known as Cale machines – are set to be installed. “I’m sitting here wondering why we even have elected officials [to represent the entire community] … when your intent is that you don’t want to pay for parking in front of your house,” Council Secretary Mary Knight told Ocean Place unit owners Mac Balkcom and Michael Feen as the meeting entered its third hour of lobbying. “You don’t have to debate me, because you’re not going to change my mind,” she said. But Knight’s declaration did not stop

Balkcom and Feen from launching another attempt to do just that. This time, however, they implored the council not to eliminate the planned street meter additions immediately, but instead to delay their implementation until after a more comprehensive study is done, even if it concluded that the street to the north of their building did, indeed, need to be metered. “We just want to know that it’s been done thoughtfully, whatever street you pick,” Balkcom said. However, he noted, an analysis by one of Ocean Place’s unit owners indicated that 146th Street’s high ratio of residential units to street parking spaces made it less ideal than many other streets where metering is not to be implemented. “I think this is a pretty clear demonstration that 146th wasn’t the best one to pick,” he said. “We’d like to come up with a master plan that includes a sustainable way forward and includes the people and includes the stakeholders,” Feen said. “If it’s done, and you put parking all over the place, I may not like it but I’ll accept it because it was done fairly and equitably.” Under the current budget proposal, the city would add Cale machines to the ocean block of 146th and 49th streets, the stretch of 131st Street between See COUNCIL on Page 8A

Council members defend reasoning for selected metered streets Continued from Page 7A

Coastal Highway and Sinepuxent Avenue, and the west side of Philadelphia Avenue below the Route 50 Bridge. Meters would also go into the municipal lots at City Hall and the 65th Street Public Safety Building, although these have raised less ire among residents. The selected streets were identified as “low-hanging fruit,” where paid parking could be implemented with the least impact on the neighborhood’s street use because of what city officials believe to be a heavy rotation of non-overnight or commercial visitors. But those who are affected by the additions have, in Feen’s words, found the logic “arbitrary and anecdotal.” The council continued to defend its reasoning for the selected streets this week, however. “This is revenue that we need,” Knight said. “146th Street is just like 49th. On 49th, all of the Ocean Pines people come and instead of paying to park in their lot, they park free on the street. On 146th, all the Delaware people park for free.” The Ocean Place building lies to the south of 146th Street, with the Delaware line to the north. The Ocean Pines Beach Club borders 49th. The estimated income from the new meters – not including those at the City Hall and 65th Street lots – is slightly over $115,000, according to city Budget Man-

rather than saying, ‘This is how we’re going to make a quick buck.’” “If these gentlemen think a study group is the way to go forward, then I’m willing to make that motion,” said Councilman Brent Ashley, who had opposed the original proposal to increase paid parking. Councilwoman Margaret Pillas seconded the motion. But the rest of council seemed far less optimistic about the solution. “A committee is us sitting around and talking about it. A real feasibility study costs us money,” Knight said. “It it’s a committee, I see no success in it. If it’s a study, I see it costing us money.” “This kind of work doesn’t come out of a committee,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. “It comes out of a study by an independent contractor that someone has to pay. A committee is something that’s going to make people feel good tonight, but it’s not going to get anything done.” “I was just following your lead on the skate park,” Ashley quipped. The council voted unanimously to develop a proposal for a professional parking study, but Ashley’s motion to strike the additional paid parking from the budget in the interim was shot down. “If the study doesn’t mete out that we should have paid parking [at 146th Street], [the machines] could always be

ager Jennie Knapp. But the cost of the 11 new Cale machines – which the city has already ordered – is $78,650. That money will come out of the current budget year, but would otherwise be rolled over into FY14, meaning the net gain from street parking for the coming cycle will be around $37,000. “To say you were discriminated against isn’t true,” said Councilman Dennis Dare, noting that 146th and 49th both have paid lots to their north and large developments to their south. “I’ve told you what my feeling is about non-taxpayers and non-residents,” Dare continued. “Ocean City is the only place you can park for free, and then go across the dune to have the lifeguard look after you all afternoon and then have Public Works come by at night and clean up the mess you left. I don’t think the taxpayers need to be in this all by themselves.” However, Balkcom and Feen’s confidence seemed to have been bolstered earlier in the session by the council’s enthusiasm for a skate park subcommittee and they requested the same for parking. “We’re asking for nothing more than for what [skate park petitioner] Michael Durkin got through his appeal,” Feen said. “I think the issues are the same,” Balkcom said. “It’s about money and shuffling it from here to there. We would like to see this studied more carefully

taken off,” Mitrecic said. Former Councilman Joe Hall also appeared at the meeting to voice his own concerns about the parking selections, noting that he had requested a parking study be done in 2010, but had been stonewalled by his colleagues. “How did Mr. Graves [owner of the Crab Bag on 131st Street] end up with paid parking and not on 60th Street?” Hall asked. City Engineer Terry McGean, in his initial presentation to council, had identified both 131St and 60th Streets as potentially lucrative and accessible for paid parking, given their commercial presence. Sixtieth Street borders Hall’s own establishment – Hall’s Restaurant – and serves as an access road to Fager’s Island.

This plan is not being equal to the south end of the county.â&#x20AC;? Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, his third, calls for part-time deputies to be at Showell Elementary School and Ocean City Elementary School 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Another part-time deputy would be at Worcester Technical High School. Another part-time deputy would split his time from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Stephen Decatur Middle School and Stephen Decatur High School. Berlin Intermediate and Buckingham Elementary would also share a part-time deputy. Two additional part-time deputies would have the duties of patrolling three schools each. One would split time among Snow Hill Elementary, Snow Hill Middle and Snow Hill High. The other

one would be responsible for Pocomoke Elementary, Pocomoke Middle and Pocomoke High. The deputies responsible for just one school would use their personal vehicles. The deputies responsible for more than one school would be assigned a used vehicle of the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. In addition, two full-time deputies would be hired. One would patrol schools in the southern end of the county. The other would patrol schools in the northern end. They would fill the voids left when the part-time deputies leave one school to go to another. Sgt. Mike Bowen would be promoted to lieutenant and his duties would include visiting each school. The first-year cost of Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third proposal would be $319,739. The second yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost would be about $210,000. Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first proposal, presented to the Worcester County Commissioners in March, would necessitate hiring new full-time deputy sheriffs to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;school security deputiesâ&#x20AC;? at 13 schools. The firstyear cost of that option, $1.6 million, would include vehicles and equipment. Each year thereafter, the estimated cost would be $1 million. That first proposal had been unanimously endorsed by the Worcester County Board of Education in February. The second option, at an estimated cost of $604,401, would necessitate hir-

ing part-time deputy sheriffs for the 13 schools. The part-time deputies would work 188 days and be off during the summer months. The commissioners were still concerned about cost and asked Mason to continue working on the school safety issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 40 years of law enforcement, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent more time on this than any otherâ&#x20AC;? issue, Mason said. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other Mason, Chief Administrative Officer Gerry Mason, devised another plan. His plan, presented to the county commissioners May 14, placed municipal police officers, plus police officers of Ocean Pines and one deputy, to be at the 13 public schools during their opening and dismissal times. Police officers would be at the schools for approximately 45 minutes for each period for a total of 90 minutes per day. In exchange for their time, the county would pay each town, and Ocean Pines, $25,000 per officer. Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal also involved hiring two new full-time deputies at a total cost of $350,260, including benefits. Those deputies, he said, would rotate among the schools to provide visible security and a federal grant was applied for to pay for their cost. Some commissioners were concerned See MORE on Page 12A

More coverage wanted in schools Continued from Page 11A

that law enforcement would only be at the schools during opening and closing times and there was also concern that the school safety personnel would be outside instead of inside. An additional stumbling block, small town police departments lack sufficient personnel to station one or more officers at schools on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they get called to a serious crime, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who would cover it,â&#x20AC;? Sheriff Mason told the commissioners Tuesday as he presented his latest proposal, which was endorsed by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have safe schools, but we want to make them safer,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said as he encouraged the commissioners to approve Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Armed officers are in schools for an increased amount of time,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. Another advantage of the plan, as far as the Board of Education is concerned, is that communication and consistency would be better coordinated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, working with one entity instead of a variety of municipalities is better,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. Lockfaw then voiced his concerns that the proposal provided more coverage to schools in the northern end of the county than in the southern end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents [in the southern area] will say youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving more coverage to other

schools,â&#x20AC;? Lockfaw said. Mason replied that there had been no complaints from Snow Hill or Pocomoke residents about any lack of school safety. Parents of students in some schools in the northern end of the county had told the commissioners several weeks ago of their concerns. Mason conceded the need for more coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not enough people, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added that deputies on regular road patrol would be visiting the schools to provide additional coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of anything else we can do,â&#x20AC;? Mason said. Commissioner Virgil Shockley did know of something else. Staying up late the night before, fortified by Dr. Pepper and pretzels, Shockley devised a school safety plan that would put a part-time deputy at each school for a cost of $572,815. His plan, chickenscratched on a piece of paper, could provide the coverage needed, he said. The sheriff said he was asked to look at ways to save money, but Bud Church, president of the commissioners, told him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The commissioners were not part of our plan. Maybe we can work this a little better.â&#x20AC;? Shockley and Lockfaw will meet with Sheriff Mason to fine-tune Shockleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal or to devise a plan that would provide coverage for all public schools.

Pok. Discovery Center trying to remain afloat NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

County supports rehabilitation of Opera House Commissioners pass motion to give Snow Hill facility $100,000 funding NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

(May 24, 2013) The Delmarva Discovery Center is struggling to stay afloat financially. “We’re on the Titanic,” said Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners, during the May 14, budget work session. “I’ve had a problem with this. I feel bad about putting money in a sinking ship, but they do have a game plan,” Church said. The beleaguered facility on the Pocomoke River has had trouble attracting visitors since it opened in 2009. The Pocomoke Marketing Partnership, which was largely responsible for bringing the museum project to fruition, was seeking $80,000, $30,000 more than the amount given in the current fiscal year and $40,000 more that the amount given in fiscal year 2012. The additional funds were to be used to hire someone to raise funds

NEWS 15A

(May 24, 2013) Snow Hill’s deteriorated Opera House will get repair funds from the county, but only half the amount sought. Mayor John “Charlie” Dorman and others want to rehabilitate the former Opera House at the corner of North Washington Street and West Market Street to encourage tourism and economic development. Dorman asked the Worcester County Commissioners in February for

$200,000 to stabilize the building and install a new roof. “I’m dead set against this,” Commissioner Madison Bunting said during the commissioners’ budget session on May 14. The Opera House would be like the financially strapped Delmarva Discovery Center in Pocomoke, Bunting said, and he did not want to give county funds to it. “They need to get donations,” he said. Commissioner Judy Boggs favored the contributions for the Opera House partly because Snow Hill “has never gotten the respect it deserves as our county seat.” The commissioners had supported Ocean City by contributing money for a building for the Art League and Pocomoke by contributing money for the

Delmarva Discovery Center and the Mar-Va Theater, she said. Boggs made a motion to give the requested $200,000, but it died for lack of a second motion. Commissioner Virgil Shockley, whose large district includes Snow Hill, spoke on Dorman’s behalf. “You’ve got new leadership and a new leader trying to do something,” Shockley said. “I know the whole roof is going to collapse. It will be a demolition job in a year and a half.” “Either you do something or it falls down,” he said. Shockley made a motion that the commissioners passed to give Snow Hill $100,000 for the Opera House. “I think we’re showing good faith at $100,000,” said Bud Church, president of the commissioners.

and to obtain grants. The request was not well-received. “I wouldn’t object to giving them $50,000 for one more year,” Church said. “But if it doesn’t improve, I will not give them another penny.” Commissioner Merrill Lockfaw, whose district includes Pocomoke, supported providing funds for the museum. “Fifty-thousand dollars will just keep them afloat,” Lockfaw said. The museum, he said, needs grants and a plan to get them. “They cannot live on admissions,” Lockfaw said. The commissioners voted to give the museum $50,000. Gerry Mason, the county’s chief administrative officer, said the commissioners had given the Delmarva Discovery Center more than $1 million. When the Delmarva Discovery Center opened at 2 Market St., supporters said it needed 30,000 admissions a year to be viable. It has never achieved that goal. To attract visitors, the museum holds special events and has weekend programs. It also offers free admission or half-price rates the first weekend of every month for residents of Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties plus Sussex County, Del., and Accomack County, Va. Sometimes, the museum also offers free admission to groups like NASA employees, admitted free May 12-13, and members of

the military, active or retired, and their families, who were admitted free May 18-19, in hopes some would return as paying visitors. The entire facility, or just its meeting room, is available for rental for special events, including birthday parties, and can accommodate many different group sizes. The museum promotes itself online at delmarvadiscoverycenter.org as “a living museum, a place for learning and discovery for visitors of all ages.” “The immersive and engaging exhibits take visitors on a timeless journey through Delmarva and through the Cypress Swamp. The exhibits focus on the river ecology and the human history of the Pocomoke River and Delmarva,” the website says. Its 6,000-gallon freshwater aquarium, which highlights the ecology of the Pocomoke River and its fish, opened in October 2010 thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Snow Hill-based Fulton Owen Foundation. Designed to look like the underwater world of the river, it features Atlantic sturgeon, largemouth bass, channel catfish and bluegills. The Delmarva Discovery Center is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, Friday, and Saturday, and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. Starting Monday, Memorial Day, and continuing through Labor Day, it will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Paid parking good or bad for resort To pay or not to pay for parking: that is the question and it’s not only the residents and property owners up in the 146th Street area who should be asking it. Although those north Ocean City condominium owners feel singled out, the greater issue is whether this is the beginning of a gradual expansion of paid parking here or just a one-time thing to help balance the coming year’s budget. Generally speaking, government – any government, not just this one – never saw a potential revenue source it didn’t like, especially when the method of generating that additional money would seem to spare voters. The operative words here, however, are “would seem to spare,” since anything that affects tourism affects everything else in a beach town. It’s widely accepted, for instance, that day-trippers and other short-term visitors use local services without paying for them, but that would assume that most of them spend zero – no food, no gas, no sundries, no arcades, no amusement rides – during their brief times here. It also assumes that a first-time weekend visitor, or repeat day-trippers will not return some day for a longer stay, having been introduced to an experience they would like to savor come the time that they have the money. Paid parking everywhere has become a standard in many other resort towns and it is unconditionally irritating. It’s a turn-off, which is what Ocean City doesn’t need, as it spends a significant amount of money to compete with other resort areas. Free parking may seem like a drag on government, but it’s a loss leader for the rest of the tourism industry, which includes, of course, real estate. Just because the mayor and council want to meter a couple of streets here and there doesn’t mean it’s part of a long-term plan. Still, everyone might want to think long and hard about that.

Car weekend noise offensive Editor, There can be no better word to describe the activity on Coastal Highway during Cruisin’ weekend last Friday than mayhem. I have an aversion to unnecessary offensive noise.

The custom cars driving, often irresponsibly, create such noise intentionally. I own a condominium at 68th Street and had gone down to check on it and spend the night. I ended up leaving that evening as I could not tolerate the obscene levels of engine and tire spinning noise from Coastal Highway. There is a lot of inconsiderate behavior from these vehicle operators. There must be at least half a dozen of these weekends dedicated to the worship of the internal combustion engine each year in Ocean City. The politicians of the city encourage these weekends for retail sales. It’s all about the dollar and not about the sensibilities of property owners. It’s an old refrain really. I imagine I could raise $10,000 for the city if I was placed with a decibel monitor at the Highway 90 entrance to the resort and fined each car violating existing noise laws and sent them back to the mainland. But there appears to be no enforcement of that law. Only toleration and welcome. The revving of engines and drag racing from traffic light to traffic light is occasionally enforced by a totally undermanned police department. It doesn’t seem to slow many down. Last fall I happened to be in OC during another of these weekends in early October. Cars were doing “burn outs” in the 67th Street Holiday Inn parking lot near by condo. I learned this term “burn out” only

when asking what was going on. For the life of me, I cannot understand the motivation of such participant as it can’t be good for their engines or tires, much less the Holiday Inn parking surface, which was repaved following the event to cover the tire rubber marks. The people at the desk of the Holiday Inn were clearly overmatched in their response to this activity. Some of the participants laughed at my complaints, suggesting I buy ear plugs and saying to me that the Town of Ocean City loves them for their money. They know it and they take advantage of this attitude by the city. Common sense, courtesy and civic pride or decency is unknown to these violators. Some of the hobbiests are respectable and courteous but many could care less about noise and traffic laws. I know if I ran for public office on a platform including banning all car weekends in the resort, I would probably get a majority of property owners (i.e. those of us who pay the property taxes that fund the city) to vote for me. These activities have gone too far for too long and, believe me, many property owners and visitors are incensed and many go to other resorts that do not welcome the loud cars and/or motorcycles. How can we stop this and return OC to only the sound of wind and waves and laughter? Jim Woodcock Millersville, Md.

OPINION 21A

MY FAIR LADY A ladybug explores the cracks and crevasses of wood stacked on the beach near the inlet jetty last week. The Ocean City beach and Boardwalk will be bustling with activity this weekend during the Memorial Day holiday.

By Stewart Dobson Forgive the slight departure from the usual stream-of-unconsciousness that I pound out just before deadline, proving that desperation is a critical element of the creative process, but a number of changes have occurred within the news department that must be announced. Lisa Capitelli, who came to Ocean City Today more than a decade ago for the sole purpose of reporting on and taking pictures of various social activities in the area, has been promoted to managing editor. She replaces Brandi Mellinger, who left the news business altogether last week, for a position that would not require her to beat people for any reason, real or imagined. That wonderful opportunity now falls to Ms. Capitelli, who probably has never physically beaten anyone in her life, but will soon get the hang of it, once someone informs her, after about two hours of sleep the night before, that the story she was planning on for page one is going to be a couple of hours late. That is the kind of thing that turns otherwise nice people into mean so-andso’s, who would just as soon drive a stake through your heart as they would look at you. Over the years, though, Ms. Capitelli has shown signs of a hidden streak of meanness, including the infamous incident when she declared of an individual, “I don’t think I like that person.” Strong words indeed. In addition to that promotion, the paper also has hired one Clara E. Vaughn, who, when she finds a place to live, will assist with copy editing and do some reporting as well. Ms. Vaughn, who received her master’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland, comes to us from Onley, Va., down on the Eastern Shore, where news reporting is largely confined to potato prices. Just kidding. They grow produce too. No, really, I’m kidding. Anyway, she earned the position here not because of any special ability, earnestness, desire, drive or ambition, but because she acknowledged that she likes raw clams and oysters, which, as it happens, is one of critical factors in getting along with me. The way I see it, any 24-year-old who likes raw oysters and clams can learn to put up with me. In the meantime, if anyone has any issues with the paper, its news content, selection of photos, etc., don’t call me. Call Ms. Capitelli. She’s very nice … for now.

(May 24, 2013) Ocean City Councilman Doug Cymek has initiated a crackdown on what were – up until recently –bail bondsmen being promoted by the police department despite not having a resort business license. As of this week, the Ocean City Police Department will require all bondsmen who wish to appear on the department’s list of available agents to have an Ocean City business license, even if they do not maintain an office in the city limits. “The commission talked through it and decided it should be a requirement,” Councilman Doug Cymek, who is also chair of the city’s Police Commission, said this week. “Anyone can be on the list; they just need to have a license.” Cymek, who is himself an authorized bail bondsmen, formerly associ-

ated with bonding agencies in town, has brought up the issue before, but it wasn’t until this week that the OCPD actually changed its material. Officers at the city’s Public Safety Building at 65th Street will provide a handout to those brought to the lockup that lists available bail bonding agents. “A local bail bond company copied me and Capt. (Greg) Guiton on a letter where he expressed concern about unlicensed agencies basically being advertised on that handout,” Cymek said. “I thought it had some merit, as all these other businesses in town pay a license fee, and if we’re going to be handing out a paper guiding prisoners toward a certain group of people, we should ask that they all be license to do business in town.” The city has some latitude to require those doing business in Ocean City to obtain a license, even if they are not based in the resort. The major segment of the market that falls into this category are building contractors, who must possess an Ocean City business license to perform physical work here even if they are headquartered elsewhere.

City can require license for work in town, even if based outside Continued from Page 22A

City Solicitor Guy Ayres said he doubted that the city could require bondsmen to have a city business license in order to write bonds for the city jail. But the city can impose any requirement it wishes in order to have oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business physically printed on the OCPDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just because you may go down to the commissioner of the court at 65th Street to post a bail bond, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require you to get a business license in town,â&#x20AC;? Ayres said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just means

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to put you on the paper that we give people.â&#x20AC;? Building contractors are relatively easy to regulate, Ayres said, given that they must go through the city to acquire building permits. The same goes for tow truck companies, which must be licensed in Ocean City even if their garages are elsewhere, given that they must go through the OCPDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impound lot to do their business. In many instances, however, Ayres said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; have the personnel, nor does it make sense from a cost

standpoint, to hire someone to go around and investigate this kind of stuff. Like a lot of things, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely complaint-driven.â&#x20AC;? City Finance Administrator Martha Bennett, whose department oversees license collections, said she was previously unaware that the OCPD even distributed such a list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been licensed all along, really,â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a new code or a code change. That policy has always existed, but apparently we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been enforcing it

completely â&#x20AC;Ś the city certainly should be putting out a list of businesses if they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t [licensed].â&#x20AC;? Cymek said he had received no push-back from bail bondsmen, of whom all the previously unlicensed listees have paid for city licenses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to be on the list, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to adhere to,â&#x20AC;? Cymek said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some have business fronts in town, some donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been writing bail bonds for 14 years. We had a license and so should they.â&#x20AC;?

COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (May 24, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their May 21, meeting.

Road dedication The commissioners announced they will hold a dedication of the new Samuel Bowen Boulevard, the county’s Route 50 service road, on Monday, May 27, at 2 p.m. at the boulevard’s southeast intersection with the Walmart Shopping Center near Berlin. Pfc. Bowen died July 7, 2004, while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Scrap tires A Citizen Scrap Tire Drop-off Day will be held Sept. 14 at the central landfill near Snow Hill. The event is limited to residents of Worcester County, who may drop off up to 10 unwanted tires per person from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is not open to businesses. The Maryland Department of the Environment will reimburse Worcester County for advertising fees of up to $1,200 and

possibly more, Public Works Director John Tustin said. The county will pay the collecting contractor, Auston Contracting, and will be reimbursed by the Department of Environment after the event is concluded. Such tire drop-off days were very successful in the past. They have not been held for a number of years.

Budget hearings The commissioners scheduled public hearings for the Water and Wastewater Enterprise Fund budget and the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund Budget for June 4. On that date, they will vote to adopt the county’s budget for fiscal year 2014.

Housing rehab The commissioners approved the request of Jo Ellen Bynum, the county’s housing coordinator, to seek a one-year extension of the current housing rehabilita-

tion grant, which expires June 30. They also approved her request to seek $80,000 in additional funding.

Generator loan The commissioners approved the request of Emergency Services Director Teresa Owens to loan a broken generator to the Town of Pocomoke. A generator at one of Pocomoke’s pumping stations requires an engine and the engine at the county’s water tower building in Snow Hill could fill that need.

Funds awarded The commissioners approved two programs recommended by the Local Management Board for funds. The Worcester County Health Department Co-Parenting Program will receive $58,428 and the Cricket Center will receive $33,500.

NEWS 25A

Propane gas service The commissioners approved the request of Public Works Director John Tustin to award a contract for propane gas service to Peninsula Oil Co., for its quoted mark-up price of 18 cents per gallon. The service contract starts June 1, and ends May 31, 2015.

Sediment and erosion control The commissioners scheduled a public hearing for the draft sediment and erosion control ordinance for June 18. The Maryland Department of the Environment adopted revised erosion and sediment control regulations in January 2012. Each county and municipality must adopt an erosion and sediment control ordinance that meet the intent of the state’s sediment control laws and regulations.

The supplies are destined for the often-cramped quarters of the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Irish student workers, who flood the island every summer in search of jobs and travel opportunities, but often with limited support, a situation that Irish Outreach has sought to remedy. The center will be re-opening its doors today at a new location on 33rd Street, with considerably more space

than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location on 17th Street, and much more space than was had two years and prior, when the organization operated out of cars and vans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little further away from the downtown than where we were last year [on 17th Street],â&#x20AC;? said Rick Fairbend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, the Jolly Roger is up here, Higginsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is up here, so there are a lot of Irish kids working in the area. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work out well.â&#x20AC;? As of today, the center will be open daily from noon to 8 p.m., with 45 volunteers currently on the staff rotation. Since the 1960s, the U.S. State Department has offered J-1 student visas to foreign students who wish to spend their summer traveling in the United States. Once here, students are allowed to work for a time to cover the costs of their trip. Ocean City is a popular destination, given its summer vibrancy and bounty of temporary jobs. Ocean City has had some sort of Irish student support group for years. Since 1999, the local chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians has been sponsored to do so by the Irish Apostolate in Silver Spring, which is itself funded directly by the Republic of Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state department.

RICK FAIRBEND Irish Outreach Coordinator had atrophied as a dwindling number of Irish students came to the resort. But with the recent rise in the number of Irish students, the Fairbends began to organize a more active program. Besides assistance with material goods they may be lacking, Irish Outreach also provides students with help in securing jobs and housing, providing lists of businesses and landlords who are looking for foreign help, as well as lists of those who have conflicted with student workers in the past. Unlike the Eastern European states, from which the resort also draws many student workers, Ireland is a visa waiver country, meaning that Irish nationals can come to the U.S. without prearranged jobs or housing. Many Irish students in Ocean City arrive without a knowledge of how the housing or job markets function, leading to some ugly incidents in recent years in which students were packed into unsafe housing or were refused payment for work they had completed without full documentation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to reach them as fast as we can when they get here,â&#x20AC;? Rick Fairbend said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a fair number of places that have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take any Irish kids

sort have been making a similar effort as well, according to Carrie Linch of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seasonal Workforce Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in touch with the sponsors that have had most numbers of Irish students,â&#x20AC;? Linch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were very supportive and wanted to get more involved, because we feel that there is a great need for these students to have more support before coming over.â&#x20AC;? The number of Irish students in the resort during the season is estimated to be between 600 and 700, although the State Department no longer gives its official numbers. The Fairbends gather their own data by asking those who visit the center to provide the number of students living in their house or apartment. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total was 620. Irish Outreach also coordinates with the Ocean City Police Department to assist students who are arrested in the resort for minor offenses, typically noise or alcohol violations. Many are given community service sentences that they are able to fulfill by volunteering at the center or at the Knights of Columbus on 99th Street. Recent changes in state law will now allow officers to arrest, cite, and release minor offenders on the spot without taking them to court to be charged, something that the OCPD has previously said will help with the logistical nightmare of shuttling offenders back and forth from 65th Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I think the police are hoping, too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that it will cut down on a lot of the hassle and difficulty for these kids who get hit for small stuff,â&#x20AC;? Rick Fairbend said.

Sacca OCEAN CITY—Annunciata “Nancy” Esposito Sacca, a teacher, devout parishioner and fixture in Ocean City, died peacefully at Peninsula Regional Medical Center on Monday, May 20, 2013 surrounded by family. She was 88. Born in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Alvidio and Italia Esposito. Mrs. Sacca was preceded in death by her husband John J. F. Sacca in 1968 and beloved son F. Michael Sacca in 1991. She is survived by her daughters Elizabeth Sacca Kucinzski and Sandra Sacca Caldwell and their husbands and families, of Maryland and Virginia. She was an adored grandmother to Alexandra and James Caldwell. Mrs. Sacca attended parochial school at St. Donato’s Catholic School in West Philadelphia and earned her Bachelor of Education from Immaculata College in Paoli, Pa. She taught second and fourth grades at St. Francis de Sales Catholic School in Salisbury for 30 years. Mrs. Sacca fell in love with Ocean City on a family vacation and settled there permanently with her family after her husband’s Navy career ended. She started Esposito’s parking lot in the late 1950s and was a fixture in downtown Ocean City for tourists and locals until retiring from the business in 2012. Her family home, the Esposito/Ludlam House in downtown Ocean City, was a source of pride for Mrs. Sacca and one of the few landmarks remaining from Ocean City’s early history. She was an active parishioner at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Parish in Ocean City, where she was a Eucharist minister and lector. She chaired the annual Holy Savior Christmas bazaar for 16 years. Mrs. Sacca was passionate about her faith, Italian heritage, books, travel and the opera. A teacher to the end, her intelligence and insatiable curiosity about the world inspired those around her.

BZA re-opens Lizard hearing for legal dispute Board must make motion in order to close hearing; ruling unlikely to change ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (May 24, 2013) An apparent technical snafu sent De Lazy Lizard’s Boardwalk restaurant project back for an additional session before Ocean City’s Board of Zoning Appeals last night, a move that has the project’s opponents on guard even though the previous decision to deny the restaurant’s request is unlikely to be changed. Last night’s meeting – scheduled after press time for this publication – was intended to correct the action, or rather in-

action, taken by the board at its May 16 session. That meeting involved a hearing for De Lazy Lizard’s request for an exception to 15 required parking spaces for its proposed location at the former Lambros Apartments building on the Boardwalk between Fourth and Fifth Streets. At the conclusion of that hearing, board Chairman Al Harrison said there had been a motion made to grant the restaurant’s request but that it had died for lack of a second and so the appeal was denied. However, De Lazy Lizard’s attorney, Hugh Cropper, said this week that because the board had not declared the evidence and testimony given at the hearing to be either for or against his client’s request, the issue was still open. “That’s just my opinion, that it was

neither approved nor denied,” Cropper said. “From my perspective, they have to produce findings of fact that you can present in Circuit Court” should the decision be appealed to the next level. Although de-facto denial by lack of action may work for the city’s purposes, Cropper said, it would not be sufficient if he were to advance the case up through the Maryland court system. If the city never moved to pass judgment on the evidence given, Cropper would have nothing to challenge if De Lazy Lizard were to appeal in court. Under the articles of land use in the state’s code, counties and municipalities are required to have certain quasi-judicial review boards whose cases can be appealed to the state’s judicial system. “We only have a BZA because the See CITY on Page 35A

The city must have agreed with Cropperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge, at least in part, since last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting was to be convened so that the board could make a formal motion of denial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The board has decided that, moving forward, when they deny they will deny via motion, out loud,â&#x20AC;? said BZA attorney Heather Stansbury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because this case is somewhat controversial, and it seems like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting busier with more cases now, they want to be sure that everyone is very clear about what happens.â&#x20AC;? Because no decision has been made, technically, the BZA could change its stance on the issue, although highly unlikely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theoretically, yes, they could, because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legally been no evidence submitted,â&#x20AC;? Stansbury said. However, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how the board could do that. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be legally advisable. They have already determined what they are going to do, they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide it by motion.â&#x20AC;? Nevertheless, residents and unit own-

ers in the El Capitan Condominium, who made up the majority of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponents, planned to appear last night out of an abundance of caution. The El Capitan abuts the Lambros building to the south and its residents have been vocal in their concerns that the proposed restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking burden will be too much for their already-congested area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My understanding is that if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed last time, that they would now have to come up with something with conditions [for the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval] or make a motion to deny it outright,â&#x20AC;? said El Capitan property owner Janice Scott. De Lazy Lizardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contested request last week centered on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking code, allowances for which make up the bulk of the cases brought before the BZA. The city requires that all new establishments provide a certain number of parking spaces, based on the type of business and the square footage occupied. Many older facilities, however, have been granted a historical right by the city for their pre-regulatory lack of parking. The Lambros building has had retail establishments on its ground floor and has apartments on its upper levels, although it has no parking on the site. The rights to such a non-conformity are associated

with the property. But retail establishments require less parking, under city code, than restaurants. The change in use from a T-shirt shop to an eatery would necessitate an additional 15 spaces under the code beyond what the building already had grandfathered in via its previous uses. Cropper had appealed the code based on the opinion that the restaurant would not need the full complement of parking prescribed, given that it would be on the Boardwalk and the bulk of its patrons would be foot traffic. Further, the BZA had granted a nearidentical waiver of 17 spaces for Hooters, which Cropper viewed as precedent that changes in business use did not equate to changes in parking need, at least on the Boardwalk.

El Capitan residents, however, said that the Hooters approval had been a mistake and had indeed worsened the traffic congestion on their block. They also feared that De Lazy Lizardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact would be compounded by the imminent redevelopment of the Hampton House property, to the north of the Lambros building, by Sunsations owner Avi Sibony. Cropper said this week that, even if resistance from the neighbors continues, De Lazy Lizard would still look to do a project at the site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to proceed and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do a business on the Boardwalk at that location, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not sure what it will look like,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The property has a parking non-conformity for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there now, so you could do something compliant, something that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need the extra spaces.â&#x20AC;?

POLICE BRIEFS

Ripley’s theft A visit to Ripley’s Believe It or Not on May 18 led to an arrest for an 18-year-old Richmond, Va., man. Two employees of the Boardwalk attraction told police that a visitor had stolen a five-legged, two-tailed, stuffed and mounted fox, valued at $1,700, plus its sign, valued at $20. One of the employees yelled at the man and his companion as they ran from the museum. The man holding the fox and sign dropped the items and they continued running. While police were gathering information about the theft, another Ripley’s employee spotted the two men and police confronted them. Grant Ewing Davis reportedly told police that he and his friend had been inside Ripley’s when he “made a mistake” and that the mistake was “a stupid one.”

Police viewed a surveillance video that captured the theft. A search of Davis after his arrest for theft of an item valued at $1,000 to $10,000 revealed marijuana in a bag and police then charged him with possession of marijuana.

Bus trouble

Malicious destruction A 30-year-old Denton man was unable to tell police where he was staying or where he was after they woke him up May 19. According to Ocean City police, Devon Justin Benchoff was asleep on the ground outside a downtown motel room. The woman in the room said he had been trying to break in and police saw that the doorknob had been ripped out. Police charged Benchoff, reportedly intoxicated, with malicious destruction of property.

A municipal bus driver activated the emergency strobe signal atop the bus May 18 because of an unruly passenger. The driver wanted the passenger, Megan Elizabeth Heins, 23, removed from the bus because she was yelling obscenities. As Heins and her father were disembarking, she reportedly pushed him in the back causing him to fall out of the bus. Police charged Heins, who reportedly remained extremely belligerent, with second-degree assault.

Concealed weapon

charged with numerous traffic offenses, including driving under the influence of alcohol. After arresting Burritt, police searched his vehicle and located metal knuckles hidden in the pocket of the driver’s door. The knuckles had a sharp metal blade attached to their end. Police also found suspected marijuana in a bag on the vehicle’s floor. Burritt was charged with having a concealed deadly weapon and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Tampering with vehicles Two Clarksburg men were caught tampering with parked cars on Rusty Anchor Road in north Ocean City on May 15. Ocean City police arrived to see them trying door handles to see if the vehicles were unlocked. Continued on Page 38A

Continued from Page 37A Police confronted the suspects and one of them, Harry Gardner Holmes, 25, ran, but they caught him. He then allegedly tried to assault an officer, and was subdued by a Taser. The second suspect, Christopher Ryan Holmes, 22, was taken into custody without incident. Police said the men are brothers who were staying in the 94th Street area. They also said the brothers had gained entry to at least two vehicles. In accordance with departmental policy, Harry Holmes was taken to Atlantic General Hospital after being subdued by the Taser. After he was released, police took him to the Public Safety Building. Each man was charged with two counts of rogue and vagabond, meaning he was in or on a motor vehicle with the intent to com-

mit theft. Harry Holmes was also charged with assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.

A marked Ocean City Police Department patrol car, stopped in traffic at 84th Street, sustained a significant amount of damage May 18 when it was rear-ended by a box truck. The impact caused a chain reaction involving four vehicles. Two police officers inside the patrol car were treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Atlantic General Hospital. Both officers were released later from the hospital, but were not expected to return to work for several days. John Clifton Truitt, 33, of Salisbury, the driver of the box truck, a Bethany Resort Furnishing vehicle, was charged with failing to control speed to avoid a collision, negligent driving and failing to have a valid medical certificate, which is a commercial driver code violation. The other three vehicles involved were not significantly damaged. No other injuries were reported as a result of the collision.

Collision A 40-year-old woman was charged May 19 with driving under the influence of alcohol after a collision on Route 50 and Friendship Road shortly before 9 p.m. According to Maryland State Police, Jodi Leah Yankalunas was driving on Route 50 when her 2009 Chevrolet Impala rearended a 2010 Toyota Corolla driven by Amy Marie Higgins. Yankalunas refused to submit to a breath test.

Pines theft A 48-year-old Ocean Pines man was charged April 25 with theft of more than $1,000. According to the Ocean Pines Police Department, Drew Scott Sachs did some minor home improvement work at a local residence and took a ring from the home. He was held in the county jail on $1,500 bond, but that was increased to $10,000.

Two arrests same day Ocean Pines police arrested Scott Allen Altland, 26, of York, Pa., twice on May 12. Each time, Altland was charged with driving under the influence. The first arrest was at 3:25 a.m. Four hours later, police arrested Altland again after he was involved in a minor single vehicle accident in the community.

Decatur coaches pleased with players’ performances in ’13 Lady Seahawks finish with 11-3 record; boys go 9-4 LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

The Stephen Decatur baseball team captured the program’s first 3A East Regional title last Friday on their home field in Berlin. The Seahawks won the championship game 3-1 over the Reservoir Gators.

Decatur 3A East Region champs Seahawks win baseball program’s first regional championship title LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 24, 2013) The Stephen Decatur baseball team led 4-3 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, when the LaPlata Warriors scored two runs for the come-form-behind 5-4 victory in the 3A state semifinals on Tuesday at Joe Cannon Stadium in Hanover, Md. Junior Jacob Hickman drove in sophomore Justin Meekins to give Decatur a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Hickman earned another RBI in the third, to boost the Seahawks’ lead to two. Senior Dallas Harrington’s sacrifice fly increased Decatur’s advantage to three runs. Harrington’s RBI single in the fifth put Decatur on top 4-0, but LaPlata knocked in three runs in the bottom of the inning to cut the Seahawks’ lead to one. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, the Warriors scored, tying the game at 4-4 on wild pitch by Decatur sophomore Grant Donahue. LaPlata capitalized on a Decatur miscue as the runner on third notched the game-winning run.

“For six and two-thirds innings, we were leading and going to the state finals and we just didn’t execute,” said Decatur Coach Rich Ferro. Donahue pitched a complete game. He struck out five, walked two and allowed eight hits. Decatur advanced to the state semifinals after defeating the Reservoir Gators 3-1 last Friday in the 3A East Regional finals. Junior Chase Coursey singled to bring in the first run of the regional title game in Berlin in the bottom of the first. The Gators evened it at 1-all in the fourth. In the bottom of the fourth, freshman Zach Adams doubled to score Harrington and give Decatur the go-ahead run. A Meekins double in the fifth put the Seahawks on top 3-1. The home team held the lead to captured the program’s first regional championship title. “We’ve gotten timely hits these past couple games and we’ve had a lot of luck,” Ferro said last Friday. “We had some quality at bats, we got runs we needed, our pitchers have thrown strikes and we played defense behind them… We’re down to the final four teams in the state in the 3A and we’re just really fortunate we got the chance to compete.” Donahue pitched five innings. He struck out three, walked two and allowed two hits. “My arm felt great. It always makes

me feel comfortable knowing I have 100 percent defense behind me,” Donahue said after winning the regional title. “This feeling is amazing. The entire team is excited.” Closer Sean Colgan, a sophomore, took the mound for the last two innings. He struck out three—two in the bottom of the seventh—and allowed two hits. “I knew it was a big situation, but bottom line, I had to get the job done. I was a little nervous, but I tried to keep it in the back of my mind and I just kept throwing like it was a normal game,” Colgan said. “So many emotions rushed into my head (after striking out the final batter). We’ve come so far this season and it’s just a great win for everyone.” Decatur finished the season with a 166 record. The Seahawks were seeded third in the 3A East Region. They shut out the No. 6 Mt. Hebron Vikings 1-0 in nine innings last Monday in Berlin, and two days later the Seahawks, again competing on their field, edged out the No. 10 River Hill Hawks 5-4 to earn a spot in the May 17, regional finals. “It was a great season. We’re really proud of them,” Ferro said. “We have some young guys, but they’re polished. They were really competing against older, more experienced players, but they never backed down from anything. See IT WAS on Page 42A

(May 24, 2013) Eight tennis players represented Stephen Decatur during the District VIII tournament, held May 16-17, in Cambridge. Senior Madison Pope competed in girls’ singles action. Tori Whigham partnered with fellow senior Lexi Ashton for doubles play. Seniors Emmalee Murrell and Tim VanVonno teamed up to battle in mixed doubles competition. Seniors Joe Iacona and Jon Hastings took the court for doubles play. They all won their first-round matches, but were eliminated in the second round. Junior John Niedfeldt competed in boys’ singles competition and lost his first-round contest. “I thought they played well. We didn’t get great seeds and I think that hurt us,” said Girls’ Coach Jamie Greenwood. “Girls’ doubles and mixed doubles had to play the No. 1 seed in the second round and that was tough…I’m happy with how all the girls played,” he said. “All four of them are seniors and it was a nice way to end the season on a positive note.” The Decatur girls’ tennis team finished the 2013 season 11-3. Greenwood said he was pleased with the Lady Seahawks’ performance this spring. “I was happy with the season. I thought we had a good year,” he said. Five seniors on his 12-player roster will graduate next week. “We’ll have some big shoes to fill next year,” he said. “Hopefully, the seven girls returning will play in the off-season and keep up the hard work.” The Decatur boys’ team went 9-4 this year under the direction of Coach Steve Berquist. “Ten wins was our goal this year and we finished one short of that, but it was a good season and the kids were fun to work with,” Berquist said. “We beat all the teams we were supposed to beat. I think it was a successful season,” he said. Berquist said the team had great leadership in VanVonno and Iacona. “They were great leaders, they helped us achieve our nine wins and they kept everyone focused,” he said. Five of Berquist’s 11 players will graduate next week. With spots open, he said the underclassmen will have an opportunity to step into starting roles in 2014.

It was definitely a good ride.” Three seniors—Harrington, Chase Church and Noah McAleer—will graduate next week. Ferro said since Day 1, the seniors stepped into leadership roles. They “paved a good road for the younger guys,” Ferro said. The future looks bright for the program, with a number major contributors returning next season. “We’re hoping they want to get back to [the state tournament] and be on the winning end,” Ferro said.

Seven Stephen Decatur track athletes to compete in state meet Two-day championship scheduled for today and Saturday in Baltimore LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 24, 2013) Seven Stephen Decatur track athletes will compete in the 3A state championship meet, scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Morgan State University in Baltimore.

The Seahawks’ stellar performances during the 3A East Regional meet, held May 16 and 18 at Reservoir High School in Fulton, earned them spots in this weekend’s championship. “We did pretty well,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. “The competition was really strong. The 3A East Region is one of, if not the, strongest in the state.” Junior Katie Collins pole vaulted 8 feet 6 inches to take top honors in the regional event.

“I think I did good, but I could have done better. I was really close to getting 9 feet,” Collins said. “States will be a lot harder. My goal is to get 9 feet or higher.” Senior Ameerah Lewis took second place in the shot put with a throw of 32 feet 6 inches. Antoni’a Green, a senior, finished in fourth place in the shot put, launching it 31 feet 1 inch, to make her the third Lady Seahawk to advance to the state meet. Senior Sunday Aroh was runner-up

in the pole vault, with a height of 11 feet 4 inches. Zachary Watters, a senior, tied for fourth place with Reservoir’s Evan Rector and Centennial High School’s Richard Vook. They all vaulted 10 feet 10 inches. Sophomore Lucas Duker will compete in two state events. He tied for second place in the regional high jump with Trey Clark of Howard High School. The both recorded high jumps of 5 feet 11 inches. Duker came in third in the 110-meter hurdles, crossSee THREE on Page 44

Phillips hurled the shot put 46 feet .5 inches to finish in fourth place. The top four athletes in each regional event qualified for the 3A state championship meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have a chance to place highly and score some points,â&#x20AC;? Stigler said.

morial Day weekend. A total of 27 boats traveled offshore, and one angler fished from the shore. Anglers landing the heaviest fish won nearly $8,000 in prize money and $3,000 was donated to the Catherine & Charles Kratz Memorial Foundation and Scholarship Fund, which provides support for veterans. Last year, tournament participation dropped because tuna were biting and many anglers went out in search of that species rather than bluefish. Fifteen boats registered for the competition and $6,210 in prize money was awarded. Around $2,000 was donated through the tournament entry fee, raffles and donations to the Kratz program. Only three anglers returned to the Sunset Marina scale with bluefish. Hookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wubbas angler Dale Bleacher reeled in a 10.6-pound fish, earning him first place for his catch worth $585. Thirteen-year-old junior angler Charlie Hash caught a 7.8-pound bluefish aboard the Mojo. Because of participation in the added entry-level calcuttas, his team took home $4,365.50. Ten-year-old Jacob Cockman hooked a 7.4-pounder, earning him third place for his fish worth $1,260.50. Registration for the 2013 competition begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Marlin Club on Golf Course Road in West Ocean City. Anglers do not have to be Marlin Club members to participate. Participants will fish one of two days, May 25 or 26. Anglers have the option to fish inshore or offshore. Boat entry fee is $200 while fishing from the shore costs $50. A portion of the entry fee will again be donated to the Catherine & Charles Kratz Memorial Foundation and Scholarship Fund. Pettolina said bluefish fishing was good inshore and offshore last weekend. Anglers caught a number of bluefish around the Ham Bone, about 29 miles offshore. They also hooked some near the

Communities and organizations pay tribute with patriotic ceremonies, parades and events over this Memorial Day weekend and beyond LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor

FOOD FOR THOUGHT By Deborah

Randy Lee Ashcraft performs during the 2012 Ocean Pines Memorial Day event. He will be performing again this year.

Bonfire and tailgate party among events LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 24, 2013) Formerly known as the Council of Colts Corrals, the Council of Baltimore Ravens Roosts has gathered in the resort area since 1968. The group even continued the festivities when Baltimore didn’t have a football team. This year will mark the organization’s 49th celebration in Ocean City and it will include a convention, parade and a variety of other activities. Thousands of football fans, donning purple and black, take part in the event annually, but last year, even more people converged on the resort as the Baltimore Ravens organization sponsored the inaugural Beach Bash, presented by Miller Lite. “Last year was a huge success and a fun event for all involved,” said Heather Harness, marketing, advertising and game entertainment manager for the Baltimore Ravens. Harness said several professional players, as well as several coaches, cheerleaders and Poe, the Ravens’ mascot, are scheduled to attend the second annual Beach Bash, set for May 30-June 1. Radio station 98 Rock, the broadcasting partner of the Baltimore Ravens, will conduct live broadcasts throughout the weekend. Although activities, which are free and open to the public, will take place all over Ocean City, Ravens Beach Bash headquarters is the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel, on 101st Street.

every Sunday this summer, from May 26 through Sept. 1. It will feature lasers, lights, video and special effects displayed on a giant five-story inflatable beach ball, all choreographed to music on the beach at North Division Street in downtown Ocean City. The three shows â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 9:30 p.m., 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are free and each runs approximately eight minutes. OCEAN PINES: n A Memorial Day ceremony at the Worcester County Veterans Memorial on Route 589 near the South Gate will take place at 11 a.m. on Monday. The keynote speaker will be Michael Beatty, whom many residents and visitors know as â&#x20AC;&#x153;DJ Batmanâ&#x20AC;? (USAF, 1967-1971). Beatty said it is humbling to have been chosen as the keynote speaker for Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m incredibly honored and incredibly proud to have been asked to do this,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty amazing.â&#x20AC;? Stationed in Southeast Asia with the 6217th Combat Support Group, Beatty was a disc jockey for the US Air Force at Ching Chuan Kang Royal Chinese Air Base, Taichung, Taiwan, during the Vietnam era. There, he played music during parties for the Chinese and Americans at the local college. He was host of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billboard Magazine Top Ten Countdownâ&#x20AC;? radio program on the American Forces Network Taiwan (AFNT), as well. Beatty also volunteered as the NCO liaison for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Drug Amnestyâ&#x20AC;? in Taiwan, a program that assisted military personnel who battled with drugs during the war. The program made treatment available and assured the participant no less than a general or medical discharge. Beatty was the liaison between the airmen and the medical staff at the base hospital. Beattyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech is titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time will not dim the glory of their deeds.â&#x20AC;? The Baltimore native grew up behind Memorial Stadium and he will touch upon time spent there and in the area, as well as his time at Langley Air Force base in Virginia. He also plans to introduce some veterans who will be on hand that have been important in his life. Randy Lee Ashcraft, Dick Jacobs and the Delmarva Chorus will provide musical entertainment. The Ocean City Pipes and Drums unit will also perform. Some seating will be provided. The public is invited and encouraged to take chairs, as a couple thousand people attend the ceremony annually, according to Marie Gilmore, organizer of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually always well attended,â&#x20AC;? Gilmore said. On-site parking will be available. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held at the Community Church at Ocean Pines. For more information, call 410-2086612. BERLIN: n Boggs-Disharoon Post 123 in Berlin will have a Memorial service at 9 a.m. on Monday at the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquar-

ters at 10111 Old Ocean City Road. The public is invited to attend.

Maryland Torch Run celebrates 28th anniversary

(May 24, 2013) Law Enforcement officers representing Worcester County will be on the run Monday, June 3, at 8 a.m. as part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run Relay for Special Olympics Maryland. They will escort and protect the Special Olympics ‘Flame of Hope’ as it moves to the opening of the summer games, at Towson University June 7-9. This year marks the 28th anniversary of the torch run, which began in 1986 with a handful of officers raising $5,000. It has grown into a year-round effort that involves thousands of officers and sponsors, who raised more than $3 million in 2012. The schedule for the Ocean City and Worcester County portion of the Torch Run on June 3 is as follows: 8-8:30 a.m.: Pre-event ceremonies, 27th Street and the Boardwalk, Ocean City 8:30 a.m.: Torch Run Relay begins, 27th Street to North Division Street, Ocean City 9:15-9:30 a.m.: Run concludes at North Division Street with photo opportunity and refreshments. Buses load and proceed to downtown Berlin for the sec-

ond leg of the relay. 10-10:15 a.m.: Pre-run pep rally, Worcester Preparatory School, Berlin 10:15 a.m.: Second leg begins, downtown Berlin 10:45-11 a.m.: Second leg concludes at Berlin Fire Department. More refreshments and photo opportunities to follow. All times are approximate and subject to change. Statewide, the Maryland Torch Run Relay consists of four different legs — Eastern, Western, Central and Southern Maryland. Throughout the week, thousands of Torch Run volunteers will cover hundreds of miles, converging in Towson, where the individual flames will be united in the final-leg ceremony. Officers from around the state will travel the last 2.5 miles to the opening ceremony at Towson University. There, they hand the Flame to Special Olympics athletes, who take the final lap with the torch and light the cauldron, officially declaring the 2013 SOMD Summer Games open. You don’t have to be a runner to participate in the Eastern Leg of the Torch Run Relay. Each leg will have support vehicles so you can run as much or as little as you want. You may also ride your bicycle. The Torch Run Relay is an awareness campaign to highlight law enforcement efforts to benefit Special Olympics and create excitement for the Special Olympics Maryland Summer Games each

ENTERTAINMENT

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, you’ll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but it’s your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and they’ll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch your budget so that you don’t overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friend’s or family member’s personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You’ve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You’ve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it won’t get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one.

‘Keep your feet in the sand until lifeguard’s in stand’ KRISTIN JOSON ■ Contributing Writer (May 24, 2013) It’s time for another fun filled summer in Ocean City. Sun worshipers, fearless graduates, boogie boarders, surfers and just about anyone who wants to get away for some fun in the sun will be arriving. But who keeps all of the beachgoers out of harm’s way? It is the lifeguards of Ocean City Beach Patrol who are called to patrol the 10 miles of coastline. They are fast, brave and well-trained, making thousands of rescues each summer. Our guards are prepared and eager to fulfill our three-part mission: education, prevention and intervention. You might be interested to know the statistics of a typical season for the OCBP as we fulfill our mission: • Returning lost and found individuals:1,000 – 2,000 • Minor first aids: 1,500 – 2,500 • Medical emergencies with EMS: 100 – 200 • Head/neck/spinal responses: 80 – 100 • Police assists: 75 –125

• U.S. Coast Guard / DNRP assists: 10 – 25 • Preventative actions in water: 75,000 – 150,000 • Surf Rescues: 2,000 – 4,000 Although we are charged with guarding and maintaining safety along Ocean City’s beaches seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., this is not our only role. We pride ourselves as ambassadors for the Town of Ocean City. As some of the most visible town employees, members of the beach patrol are highly educated, motivated, competent, professional and are assets to the town. While each of us brings a great deal of positive attributes to Ocean City, being a part of this great organization allows each of us to receive even more in return. The town continues to do a great job attracting major events such as the Dew Tour and the OC Air Show. The Ocean City Recreation Department will continue to provide free family entertainment six days a week to enable families to have a fun evening. Springfest and Sunfest have become nationally ranked events and continue to thrive even when the economy has caused similar events to suffer. Many people will be attracted to visit and vacation in Ocean City this summer, especially with other resort towns to our

north still suffering the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. What people experience once they are here will likely determine if they return for another event or a vacation. This is why the beach patrol feels it is our job to make a difference in every visitor’s experience and to assure they “Discover an Ocean of Fun.” We are first and foremost concerned about safety on the beach and in the ocean, and secondly, are continuously aware of how we as beach patrol members conduct ourselves when we interact with those we meet on the beach or anywhere in the town. While we exist to provide a public safety service, when we take the extra steps to make someone feel welcomed we become more than just employees of the beach patrol and town. We become a lasting part of their Ocean City experience. We often say our guards have hours of boredom and moments of trauma. Most of the time they are just watching and waiting to be called into action. During this time — over 90 percent of most days — the guards make conscious efforts to be ambassadors of the town and let every person they meet know that “We are glad that you are here.” You will often find a lifeguard talking to the public and educating them about beach conditions for the day, but it is not uncommon to find the same lifeguard sharing his or her favorite place to eat or relax.

Ocean City is a vacation destination and we compete for the continued loyalty of our visitors. We will continue to do our part as surf rescue technicians and as ambassadors for the Town of Ocean City. For current information about the beach patrol as well as daily stats and current beach conditions, you can follow us on Twitter or “like us” on our Official OCBP Facebook page. We can’t wait to be a part of your wonderful experiences in Ocean City, and always remember to “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand!”

Resort beach patrol conducts academy to train rookie guards in physical skills training and practice, attend classroom instruction, listen to guest presenters from other agencies and re-qualify in swimming and running. Once Surf Rescue Academy is completed the Surf Rescue Technician will have all the training and certification necessary to take to the stand as a lifeguard on one of Ocean City’s beaches. Starting May 25, the beach patrol will be on duty every day from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. At 5:25 p.m., visitors will see the lifeguards signaling everyone out of the ocean. This is our way of letting beachgoers know we are going off duty and they should cease all water-related activities until 10 a.m. the next day, when lifeguards are back on duty. The beach patrol continues its efforts to educate the public, warning them of the dangers of swimming on unguarded beaches, and does whatever it takes to make sure people leave the ocean before we leave the beaches for the night. Remember our the beach patrol saying, “Keep Your Feet in the Sand until the Lifeguard’s in the Stand.” This is a reminder to never go in the ocean when the beach patrol is not on duty. To register for training to be an Ocean City lifeguard, visit the beach patrol Web site at www.ococean.com/ocbp.

(May 24, 2013) The Ocean City Beach Patrol starts guarding the town’s 10 miles of beach this Saturday and will stand guard through Sunfest weekend, usually the third weekend in September. You may see beach patrol activities around town before Memorial Day weekend as part of the Surf Rescue Academy, where we are training our rookie personnel. Our first training academy began May 19, with an enrollment of 35 new employees. A second academy will begin June 16. The Beach Patrol will be conducting a pre-employment physical skill evaluation on June 8, for appointment to the second training academy. We are looking for individuals who are available to work through the end of our season, Sunday, Sept. 22. Although the Ocean City Beach Patrol does not require any experience or previous certifications, all Rookie Surf Rescue Technicians must have successfully completed the pre-employment physical skill evaluation. This evaluation is a 12phase, six-hour process, concluding with an interview and the offer of an appointment to one of the two Surf Rescue Academies. During the 65-hour academy, all participants will be drug tested, participate

Comprehension: object of inquiry FOOD FOR THOUGHT

What do we really know about food served to us? DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (May 24,2013) The philosophy of knowledge is actually called “epistemology,” which comes from the Greek words “episteme” (knowledge) and “logo” (reason). Comprehension is the object of our inquiry, but how often does a chef utilize this gift to its fullest potential? In other words, what do we really know about the types of food that are served on our plate? The pieces of the puzzle are about to be sifted and analyzed. To the naked eye, a scallop is quite simplistic and very unassuming. But if one knew the fascinating facts surrounding its intriguing existence, one might have more respect and passion when preparing a meal. In the early 1990s, the U.S. fishery for Atlantic sea scallops in the northeastern U.S. was not sustainable. The population was near record lows and fishing was at an all-time high. But today, according to the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, Atlantic sea scallops are in abundance. This is the result of a collaborative effort of fisherman, scientists, fishery managers and environmentalists.

Scallops are a member of the Phylum Mollusca, a group of animals that includes snails, sea slugs, octopi, squid, clams, mussels, and oysters. Scallops are also included in the cluster of mollusks called bivalves, which means their compressed body is enclosed within two hinged shells. But what is intriguing is that scallops, unlike other bivalves, are free-swimming. In essence, they swim by clapping their shells quickly, which moves a jet of water past the shell hinge, propelling the scallop forward. While we are on the subject of intriguing facts, did you know scallops have eyes? If you guessed 40 to 60 depending on the type of scallop, you would be correct. According to an article written by Alexis Madrigal that appeared in “The Atlantic,” “each of these eyes has a tapetum, a mirror of sorts that sits on the back of the retina. In most nocturnal species, the tapetum bounces light back through the retina, allowing the photoreceptors in animals such as cats and raccoons a second shot at capturing more light.” But Mother Nature did not stop there with her blessings. If a scallop loses an eye, it simply regenerates a new one to take its place. Continued on Page 15B

Try Coquilles Saint Jacques FOOD FOR THOUGHT Continued from Page 14B

The soft, succulent flesh that is adored by seafood enthusiasts is actually the abductor muscle. The muscle varies in color from white to beige. Bay scallops are small while sea scallops are much larger. Choosing the size of the scallop depends on the purpose intended. If one relishes scallops, try Coquilles Saint Jacques: scallops in a creamy sauce with slivers of shitake mushrooms and topped with crusty breadcrumbs and cheese. The dish can also be presented as an appetizer. Simply place the scallops in individual scallop shells and follow the directions accordingly. Placing the finished dish in the broiler is the final step. Ingredients 1 cup water 3/4 cup seafood stock 3/4 cup dry white wine 2 shallots, minced 1 clove garlic, minced bouquet garni (3 sprigs parsley, 2 sprigs thyme, and 1 bay leaf wrapped in cheesecloth) 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1 pound fresh scallops 8 ounces shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced 6 tablespoons butter 4 tablespoons flour 1/2 cup heavy cream Breadcrumbs Mixture of grated Swiss and Gruyere cheese Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

to taste 1. In a large saucepan over mediumhigh heat, bring water, seafood stock, wine, shallots, bouquet garni, and lemon juice over medium-high heat to a boil. Add the scallops, cover, and simmer over very low heat until cooked (4 to 5 minutes). Make sure you do not overcook the scallops. Remove from heat and set aside. 2. Add the mushrooms to the scallop poaching liquid and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Discard the bouquet garni, set mushrooms aside, and preserve the liquid (strained). 3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and whisk in the flour. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the scallop liquid and mix until blended. Over very low heat, blend the flour mixture into the scallop liquid. Add the cream, simmer, and stir thoroughly until blended and thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Add the scallops and mushrooms and stir carefully so the integrity of the scallops is not disrupted. 5. Fill a shallow 6-inch ramekin with scallop mixture. Dust lightly with breadcrumbs and sprinkle with grated cheese. 4. Broil the scallops until the mixture bubbles and the cheese turns a golden brown color.

Daniel Jacinto, chef de cuisine at Hooked restaurant on 80th Street, left, and owner Steve Hagen welcome guests to the new eatery in Ocean City.

Hooked opens on 80th Street Farm fresh, local cuisine offered at new midtown Ocean City restaurant LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 24, 2013) Buttermilk battered calamari with a spicy mayo and micro celery; crab dip with gruyere mornay, bacon, leeks and Old Bay chips and grilled marinated tuna with house kimchi and sesame peanut sauce are just a few of the appetizers offered at Hooked restaurant on 80th Street in Ocean City. The fourth Indian River Seafood Company eatery opened its doors last Thursday. All four company establishments feature different menus, but have the same concept: farm fresh, local cuisine, said owner Steve Hagen. The quality of the product is key, as is developing relationships with area farmers and fishermen, he said. Some local farmers grow crops specifically for the company’s restaurants. “We try to make it delicious and simple,” Hagen said. “We want to take things that are fixtures in the coastal area and put a spin on it.”

Local insurance agent Beth Gismondi recently attended the 2013 National Flood Insurance Conference in Anaheim, Calif. The purpose of the conference was to obtain and provide information on the program and the Biggert-Waters Insurance Reform Act of 2012. The Gismondi Insurance Agency specializes in coastal property and flood insurance on the Delmarva Peninsula. This year marks the 45th year of National Flood Insurance Program. The three-day conference had more than 30 workshops and town hall meetings. Topics included mitigation success stories, Biggert-Waters mapping and risk communication, lessons from Superstorm Sandy and claims and appeals. Gismondi and her Golden Retriever “Cassie” were featured in an agent training video produced and published by FloodSmart.gov in 2012. She has attended the National Flood Conference for many years as a panelist and a participant. Her agency is located in the Teal Marsh Center in West Ocean City.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Hooked restaurant opened on 80th Street last Thursday.

Hagen and Kevin Frey founded Indian River Seafood Company in 2010 and the pair opened their first restaurant, Off The Hook, in Bethany Beach, Del. After a successful first year, they expanded to a second location, Just Hooked, in Fenwick Island, Del. Last summer, Off The Hook Market opened in Bethany Beach, Del., and this summer, Ocean City’s Hooked follows suit.

“Every opportunity was presented to us from our clientele,” Hagen said. When he looked at the vacant space on 80th Street, formerly home to La Hacienda restaurant, he thought it was gorgeous. “We fell in love with the location,” Hagen said. He took over the space in February and began to revamp the restaurant. See BIGGEST on Page 4C

Just before the official opening of beach season on Memorial Day weekend, two popular Delaware beach motels in bankruptcy were recently sold for $3.8 million. SeaEsta III and SeaEsta IV in Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach, respectively, sold to Forgotten Mile LLC of Newport, Del., officials at Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury said last Friday. The motels, owned by Ocean Breeze LLC, had filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in January 2012. Since then, the motels had operated under the management of Salisbury-based Marshall Hotels and Resorts Co. SeaEsta III is located on U.S. Route 1 in Dewey Beach and SeaEsta IV is located just south of Rehoboth Beach.

Adkins receives Public Works Leadership Fellow designation Ocean City’s public works director will be honored Aug. 26, in Chicago (May 24, 2013) Town of Ocean City Public Works Director Hal O. Adkins was accepted as a “Public Works Leadership Fellow” by the American Public Works Association Donald C. Stone Center for Leadership Excellence in Public Works. This designation affirms Adkins’s nationwide recognition for his Hal Adkins contributions to the public works profession as a senior executive. The Donald C. Stone Center was created to meet the need to foster and develop leadership skills for the next generation of public works executives. Considered succession planning on a grand scale, the center reinforces the importance of investing in the future of public works professionals through mentoring the next generation of leaders. “For my entire career with the Town of Ocean City I’ve had a plaque that resides on my desk that reads ‘Lead, Follow, Or

Get Out Of The Way,’” said Adkins. “For those who truly know me, they would say I live and breathe that statement.” An induction pinning ceremony will be held in Chicago on Aug. 26, at the annual International Public Works Congress and Exposition, where Adkins will be recognized for his achievements and contributions to the public works profession. Adkins, 50, started his career with the Town of Ocean City on May 28, 1984. He graduated summa cum laude from the University Of Maryland Eastern Shore with a bachelor of science degree in construction management-engineering through the Department of Industrial Education and Technology. He will complete his 29th year of service with the Town this month. Adkins is a native of the Eastern Shore of Maryland and currently resides in West Ocean City with his wife, Alison, and family. “I take great pride in the thought of someday leaving my current position of public works director and having the public in general never realizing I am even gone,” Adkins said. “If that seamless transition occurs, I will have succeeded at one of my most important goals, succession planning through mentoring.”

Univ. of Maryland to measure wind at offshore turbine site ALEXANDER PYLES ■ The Daily Record Newswire (May 24, 2013) The University of Maryland, Baltimore County and Maryland Energy Administration are teaming to compile wind speed and directional data to aid the state’s offshore wind energy program. The $890,000, three-year deal will collect data at the proposed site for an offshore wind farm, at least 10 miles off the coast of Ocean City. The measurements will be used to establish baseline data for the potential project while allowing UMBC researchers to perfect the process. The data will be collected through light detection and ranging technology, also called LIDAR, which uses lasers to measure the speed, power and direction of airborne particles carried by wind. The method is expected to collect more detailed data than traditional tools used to measure offshore wind — large meteorological towers driven into the seabed. “LIDAR remote sensing is an efficient and economical alternative that allows us to measure winds across several heights, from the ocean surface to above the full height of the tallest turbines built,” said Ruben Delgado, a UMBC researcher. The General Assembly approved legislation this year to subsidize the development of offshore wind in Maryland through electricity rate increases. The bill, signed into law by Gov. Martin

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING WORCESTER COUNTY WATER AND WASTEWATER ENTERPRISE FUND FY 2013/2014 REQUESTED BUDGETS AND ASSESSMENTS The Worcester County Commissioners will conduct a public hearing on the proposed operating budgets, assessments, user charges and other charges for each of the 11 sanitary service areas operated by the Worcester County Department of Public Works, Water & Wastewater Division on: Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 10:40 a.m. in the County Commissioners’ Meeting Room Room 1101 Government Center One West Market Street Snow Hill, Maryland 21863 The 11 sanitary service areas and proposed changes to the users fees to cover projected expenses are as follows: Assateague Pointe - no proposed changes. Briddletown - no proposed changes. Edgewater Acres - no proposed changes. The Landings - no proposed changes. Lighthouse Sound - no proposed changes. Mystic Harbour - no proposed changes. Newark - no proposed changes. Ocean Pines - no proposed changes. Riddle Farm - no proposed changes. River Run - no proposed changes. West Ocean City - Decrease from $6 to $0 per quarter per equivalent dwelling unit (EDU) debt service charge due to planned retirement of debt. Commercial - Proposed change in flat commercial water and sewer service charge from $245 per quarter to a charge based on size ranging from $150 to $500 per quarter. In addition to user fees, assessments will be levied in the Newark, Ocean Pines, South Point Village, Sunset Village, Snug Harbor, Oyster Harbor, and Mystic Harbour service areas or sub-areas to make debt payments. All assessments shall be made on an equivalent dwelling unit (EDU) basis. Copies of the proposed budgets for each service area are available from the Treasurer’s Office at the Isle of Wight Complex on Route 90 and St. Martin’s Neck Road, the County Library in Ocean Pines on Cathell Road, and in the County Commissioners’ Office, Government Center Room 1103, One West Market Street, Snow Hill, Maryland. For additional information contact the Water and Wastewater Division at (410) 632-1630 ext. 1216.

O’Malley in April, requires potential developers to submit proposals that hold businesses’ monthly electricity bill increase to 1.5 percent. The average residential ratepayer could see a $1.50 increase. The increase would not take place until turbines start spinning — 2017 at the earliest. In a statement, MEA Acting Director Abigail Ross Hopper said the partnership with UMBC would help maximize the impact of offshore wind energy. “The research gathered by this partnership will allow our state to reap the economic and environmental, clean energy benefits of offshore wind,” she said.

Biggest asset and foundation of company is its staff Continued from Page 1C

With dining areas inside and outside on two floors of the building, Hagen said patrons have “different spaces to enjoy our food and service.” The colors of National Geographic’s Kevin Fleming’s photographs and awardwinning artist Aubré Duncan’s paintings pop against light walls. The Delaware artists’ work can be seen throughout the two-story restaurant. Matt Cornelius is the managing partner and executive chef of Indian River Seafood Company. Daniel Jacinto is the chef de cuisine at Hooked, which has a larger menu than the other company establishments and is the largest of the four businesses. And much thought goes into each menu item. Sweet corn n’ crab flatbread, herb encrusted tuna, seared scallops, roasted salmon, grilled mahi and filet mignon are featured on Hooked’s menu, with several special dishes offered daily. A variety of signature cocktails comprise the drink menu. Lemon-rosemary, orange-ginger and peach vodkas are made in-house, as is sangria and heirloom tomato nectar. Hooked has a larger wine menu than other company restaurants and a number of regional beers, including 16 Mile, Old Dominion and Dog Fish Head, are available. The biggest asset and the foundation of the company is its staff, Hagen said. “We have a lot of talented people in the kitchen and front of the house,” he said. The company’s eateries have developed a large following, and Hagen said he feels fortunate that his restaurants have such a loyal customer base. Many who dine at the Delaware restaurants and live in Ocean City are happy that Hooked has opened in the resort town, he said. “I think we compliment the area,” he said. Hooked opens daily at 11:30 a.m.

Treasure Island store a big hit in OC Boardwalk’s Inlet Village Merchandise at ‘Wild and Wacky Women’s Boutique’ has customers laughing for hours, Smith says LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (May 24, 2013) “If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it,” “I’m too old to pretend to care,” and “Every day I give my family two choices for dinner…Take it of Leave it,” are just a few of the comical saying featured on merchandise at Treasure Island, a new store in the Inlet Village, at the southern end of the Ocean City Boardwalk. Treasure Island’s slogan, “A Wild and Wacky Women’s Boutique,” describes the business perfectly. “It’s a fun, trendy shop for women,” said Delmar Smith, owner of Treasure Island with his wife, Dena. The couple also own Doggie Style Café K9, a store featuring pet products and merchandise, the Frog Bar & Grill and Monkey Doodles children’s boutique, all located in the Inlet Village. “We tried to create a quality women’s boutique and keep the prices reasonable,” Smith said. “Customers really like it. They tell us it’s a really fun store and they’ll be back.” Humorous quotes and retro-style artwork is displayed on coasters, magnets, hand-painted matted prints, wooden signs, clothing, kitchen towels, shot glasses and flasks. In addition, witty statements and designs are set in rhinestones on T-shirts and tank tops. “Ladies come in here and laugh for hours,” Smith said.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Owners Dena and Delmar Smith opened Treasure Island, “A Wild and Wacky Women’s Boutique,” in the Inlet Village, at the southern end of the Ocean City Boardwalk, in early April.

The store also carries the Lazy One line of T-shirts, socks, nightgowns, women’s boxer shorts and slippers. An assortment of necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, hats, scarves, purses, clothing, iPhone holders/protectors and handmade soaps from Hawaii are available at the store, as well. “We’re really excited about this store,” Smith said. “It’s been doing really well.” The Smiths took over the building formerly home to

the Memory Lane store in January. They remodeled the space and Treasure Island opened in early April. To buy merchandise for their store, the couple traveled to Florida and found themselves in a town called Treasure Island on the Gulf Coast and part of the Tampa Bay region. The Smiths bought many of the items they offer in their store in Treasure Island, Fla. It was only fitting to name their boutique Treasure Island. Treasure Island is open daily from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Changes in FEMA examined REAL ESTATE REPORT LAUREN BUNTING â&#x2013; Contributing Writer (May 24, 2013) At the recent Realtor Midyear Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo, officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at a Flood Insurance 101 session explained significant program reform as it relates to the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same legislation that granted a five-year extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). A recent news article issued by Realtor Magazine said that FEMA is facing $24 billion in debt in the wake of several catastrophic storms in recent years. To address the issue of this debt, the Biggert-Waters Act requires changes to all major components of the program, including flood insurance, flood hazard mapping, grants and the management of floodplains. The changes are slated to be phased in over time, with the first changes having taken effect on January 1, 2013. These first changes include a 25 percent increase in premium rates each year until premiums reflect full risk rates and apply to about 5 percent of the 5.6 million NFIP policy holders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; specifically those homeowners with subsidized insurance rates on non-primary residences (properties receiving subsidized insurance rates are those structures built

prior to the first Flood Insurance Rate Map â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or Pre-Firm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that have not ben substantially damaged or improved). The next round of changes is scheduled to be implemented on Oct. 1. They and will affect owners of business properties with subsidized premiums, owners of repetitive loss properties consisting of 1-4 residences with subsidized premiums, and owners of any property that has incurred flood-related damage in which the cumulative amounts of the claims payments exceeded the fair market value of such property. These properties will also see a 25 percent increase. More than 80 percent of policyholders, representing approximately 4.48 million of the 5.6 million policies in force, do not pay subsidized rates. Ten percent of all policies cover subsidized Pre-Firm primary residences, which will remain subsidized unless or until the property is sold to a new owner or the policy lapses. However, not all subsidized policyholders will see large increases. FEMA notes that obtaining an elevation certificate is the best way to know a structureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk and â&#x20AC;&#x153;true risk premiumâ&#x20AC;?.

Maryland best place to start a business, according to mag. ALEXANDER PYLES ■ The Daily Record Newswire (May 24, 2013) Maryland is No. 1 — or is it No. 7? On third thought, it might be 41st. Critics and champions of the Free State’s business climate and tax policy have plenty to argue about most days, and all-over-the-place business climate rankings do little to quell the conflict. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce earlier this month rated Maryland No. 1 for entrepreneurship and innovation, piling on to an Entrepreneur Magazine ranking calling Maryland the best state in which to start a business. Another study last week by the Anderson Economic Group said Maryland had the seventh-lowest tax burden for businesses, ahead of No. 11 Virginia but behind another neighbor, No. 1 Delaware. Those rankings are countered by other closely watched lists, including one by the Tax Foundation that listed Maryland 41st among the states for its business climate, a position earned through the sixth-highest individual income tax rate, the fifth-highest unemployment insurance tax rate and 11th-highest property tax rate. Chief Executive magazine this month concurred with the Tax Foundation’s findings, naming Maryland the 41st-best state for business. So what do these rankings — touted by some and glossed over by others, depending on policy perspective and political affiliation — actually mean? “The reason that these rankings are so widely disparate is they use vastly different criteria to determine what is business friendly and what is not,” said Anirban Basu, chairman and CEO of Sage Policy Group Inc. “I think these rankings overall have become less useful. “The appeal of rankings is they are supposed to convey a lot of information in a very short amount of time. If Maryland ranks highly in terms of business climate, it’s a good place to do business and I can move on with the rest of my life. There are so many rankings now, they are so different … society cannot necessarily agree on what is good.” The rankings — released several times throughout the year by partisan and nonpartisan organizations — are doing little to cut through the cacophony of politicians’ news releases and social media sharing. Rather than shaping public opinion, the rankings’ diverse findings cast doubt on each result. “These rankings don’t seem to reflect the reality of perception,” Basu said. “People are more likely to respond to their perceptions than any individual ranking. Since the rankings are so all over the place, the impact of these is See MD on Page 8C

quite limited in terms of changing perception.” Harford County Executive David R. Craig, a Republican who is expected to announce his candidacy for governor in the first week of June, said the diversity in rankings shows determining Maryland’s business climate includes too many variables to produce meaningful rankings or to identify narrow policy changes that could improve those rankings. “It has to be a broad-based approach,” Craig said. Some say that decreasing Maryland’s income tax would have a universal lifting effect among businesses, but Craig cautioned against identifying one policy issue as the solution to increasing competitiveness. Targeting certain industries, however, is what has allowed Maryland to rise in some rankings. Tax incentives for investments in cybersecurity and biotechnology and a credit for research and development helped the state rise to No. 6 in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) job growth, according to the U.S. Chamber. Maryland was also ranked No. 1 in academic research and development intensity. Those factors, combined with others, determined the state’s top ranking for innovation and entrepreneurship, a placement touted by Gov. Martin O’Malley

last week as the state’s unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in four years — 6.5 percent — despite the state’s having 6,200 fewer jobs in April than in March. “We are fueling innovation and investing in the things that create jobs, strengthen our workforce, expand opportunities for middle-class families and give people the tools they need to compete and win in the 21st century economy,” O’Malley said in a statement. But some caution against such targeting, likening it to diversifying an investment portfolio in case of a crash. “If you depend on one type of industry and it goes away, you’re dead,” Craig said. But while the U.S. Chamber of Commerce called Maryland the best state for entrepreneurship and innovation, some objective measurements that were part of that calculation stood out for the wrong reasons. Maryland ranked 18th in business birthrate and grew self-employment at the 21st-fastest rate. Even within individual rankings, the message is mixed. “By some measures, Maryland is an entrepreneurial basket case, very weak in commercialization,” Basu said. “Yet by other measures, we are among the leaders in terms of entrepreneurship and innovation. … I think we just have to fall back on objective measures as opposed to relying on these rankings.”

Maryland Court of Appeals puts piggyback tax ruling on hold Top court ruled statute violates Constitution’s Commerce Clause STEVE LASH ■ The Daily Record Newswire (May 24, 2013) Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler will likely urge the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a state law that bars Maryland residents from deducting, from city or county taxes, the tax they pay to other states when they earn money there. The state’s top court ruled in January that the statute violates the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause by discouraging Marylanders from earning money outside the state. Under the Constitution, the regulation of interstate commerce is the province of Congress, not state legislatures, the Court of Appeals held in its 5-2 decision in Maryland State Comptroller v. Wynne. Gansler had urged the Court of Appeals to reconsider that decision, saying it would cost local governments between $40 million and $50 million annually. Last Friday, the Court of Appeals rejected the motion for reconsideration but granted Gansler’s request to stay its decision pending resolution by the Supreme Court.

After winning the stay, however, the tion 10-703(a), which allows Maryland attorney general’s office on Friday de- residents to deduct the income taxes clined to confirm that it will indeed ap- they pay to other states from their Maryland tax.

In 2012, those local taxes ranged Attorney Christopher T.

The couple’s out-of-state income was really thorough opinion that evaluated the constitutional law questions and got derived from Brian’s ownership share in Maxim Healthcare Services Inc., which those questions exactly right.” At issue is Tax-General Article Sec- operates nationwide.

The Maryland Tax Court, an administrative agency, ruled for the comptroller, but was overturned in 2011 by a Howard County Circuit Court judge. The Court of Appeals took the case, heard argument last May and issued its opinion on Jan. 28. Without the tax credit, “a taxpayer with income sourced in more than one state will consistently owe more in combined state income taxes than a taxpayer with the same income sourced in just the taxpayer’s home state,” Judge Robert N. McDonald wrote in the Court of Appeals’ majority opinion. “This may discourage Maryland residents from engaging in income-earning activity that touches other states.” In dissent, Judge Clayton Greene Jr. said the state’s denial of an out-of-state tax credit for city and county taxes is not only constitutional, but also ensures fairness among neighbors, not all of whom might have earned income outside of Maryland. “[I]f the taxpayers were allowed to pay a lesser amount of county income tax, it would have the possible absurd result of the taxpayers paying little or no local tax for services provided by the county while a neighbor with similar income, exemptions and deductions might be paying a substantial local tax to support those services,” Greene wrote.
