Power deal can’t sway City Hall Officials stand firm on wanting farms to move farther offshore

PHOTOS COURTESY LLOYD MARTIN

WHOOPS, PARDON THE INTRUSION By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) A north Ocean City driver reached an unintended destination Monday evening after crashing through the window of the 139th Street 7-Eleven. OCPD Public Affairs Officer Lindsay Richard said the accident occurred just before 8 p.m.

“The driver of the vehicle was an elderly female and accidently accelerated into the front of the store,” she said Despite the damage, with the driver’s Mercedes Benz SUV more than halfway inside the store, Richard said the driver, albeit startled, was not injured. “A customer inside of the store sustained minor injuries and was transported by

Ocean City EMS,” she said. Councilman Lloyd Martin, who owns the convenience store, said two passengers in the car also escaped unharmed. Martin expressed relief that the incident resulted in mostly cleanup duties. While the matter is still under investigation, Richard said no charges have been filed against the driver.

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) So adamant that visual offshore wind energy turbines would be a detriment to the prosperity of Ocean City, its leadership rejected a deal with the developer last month for free or subsidized electricity from the wind farm worth millions of dollars over a period of years. The catch would be that the resort would cease its fight against establishing wind farms in an area defined by the federal government in 2009. In consideration of the cease-fire, the company would agree to dedicate a portion of its production to the town for free or substantially reduced cost. Though not spelled out in the agreement, US Wind’s general counsel, Salvo Vitale, said the deal would be worth See MEEHAN Page 80

Corps comes up with $750K inlet money Funding total half-million more than Worcester expected this budget year

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) The 2018 Army Civil Works Program is set to receive $750,000 for navigation-specific funding for the Ocean City Inlet from congressionally authorized funding in addition to what was outlined in the federal budget.

The money, which is $500,000 more than was expected during this budget year, will support the dredge operations of the two Army Corps vessels Currituck and Murden for the next 12 months, according to Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Chris Gardner. “Funding will be used to schedule future dredge visits as needed from this fall into 2019 based on the conditions of the channel and the availability of a shallow-draft dredging vessel,” he

said. The Currituck is currently under repair. This funding will not affect dredging scheduled for later this summer. Gardner said one of the boats would be in Ocean City at the end of July into early August for Assateague Bypass work, but also will be clearing the channel in anticipation of the White Marlin Open fishing tournament.

Cathell endorses Chief Deputy Terri Westcott for post

(June 15, 2018) As she prepares to end her 20 years of service as the Worcester County Register of Wills, Charlotte K. Cathell this week declared she hopes to hand the baton to Chief Deputy Register of Wills Terri Delaney Westcott. Westcott, a Republican, has worked in the office for more than 18 years and has been the chief deputy for 17 years. She has two opponents in the primary election on June 26. “The old cliché – Experience Counts – is so appropriate when explaining how the Register of Will’s office operates,” Cathell said. “Terri has See RETIRING Page 5

Early voting underway at Gull Creek Closed primary requires party affiliation; candidates seek spot on Nov. 6 ballot

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Early voting for the 2018 primary began yesterday (Thursday) in Worcester, and early ballots can be cast at the Gull Creek Senior Living Center at 1 Meadow Street, Berlin, Maryland between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. until June 21. The in-person date of the primary is Tuesday, June 26. There are several races on the ballot, and locally, a few races will be all but decided. Maryland has closed primaries, which means only those directly affiliated with either of the two major political parties are eligible to

participate. As a few races have no Democratic challenger, like delegate or sheriff, only Republican candidates will be on the ticket, and can only be voted upon by registered Republican voters. Democrats and independents have no say in these offices, although it is conceivable, if not likely, someone could mount a write-in campaign closer to the Nov. 6 general election. For House of Delegates Representative, Worcester Republicans can choose between Ocean City Councilman Wayne Hartman, Republican operative Joe Schanno and Democrat-turned-Republican Ed Tinus. Jim Schaffer will also appear on the ballot, but has suspended his campaign and, a spokesman said, adding that Schaffer would not serve in the office even if elected.

Retiring Worcester County Register of Wills taps aide Continued from Page 3 been my right hand for over 17 years and not only has a full understanding of the integral work in the opening and administrating an estate, she also has the compassion needed to help families in one of the most emotional times of their lives. “This ability to empathetically help anyone who has lost a loved one is just as important as having the knowledge in assisting people with complying with Maryland law. I would like to think that my legacy in the register’s office will be the caring and excellent customer service my staff and I have worked so hard to perfect,” she said. “Terri will be able to step into the job of register from

day one – she has the total understanding and experience in every phase of the operation of the Register’s office. This is why I wholeheartedly endorse Terri – she understands what must be done as well as how it should be done.” Westcott is a long-time resident of Worcester County, having graduated from Stephen Decatur High School. For 13 years, she worked for a local attorney handling all of his estates and trusts work in addition to numerous other duties. She went to work in the Register of Wills office in 2000. She is married to Tom Westcott, a teacher at Worcester Prep and the former soccer coach.

There are four Republican candidates for Sheriff: Scott Bernal, Matt Crisafulli, Mike McDermott and George Pruitt, and no Democrats, so this race is also likely to be decided during the primary. The State’s Attorney’s Office has two Republican candidates, Bill McDermott and Kris Heiser, and no Democrats filed. For Register of Wills, the contest on the Republican side of the ballot is between Aaron William Redden, Steven K. Sisk and Terri Delaney Westcott, while the Democrats have fielded Nicole Cauldell. Worcester County Commissioner District 3 has two Republican candidates, incumbent Bud Church and challenger Gary Millhoff. The winner of this contest faces Berlin council member Zackery Tyndall in November. Federal offices, like senator and congress member shall also be decided, along with state offices like attorney general, comptroller and governor.

In seeking Sheriff’s Office, Bernal takes tactical angle Cites long training history, specialized technology and marksmanship as talents

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Scott Bernal, a Marine, former Secret Service agent and retired OCPD detective, thinks that if Worcester County residents are seeking a sheriff based on his tactical ability, then he is the clear choice. “I have the determination of a young Marine — I’m ready to go. I don’t hesitate. If this job paid $5 per year I’d still take it,” he said. “I love this community.” Bernal served in the Marines from 1981-85, and in the reserves until 1987. He was hired as a seasonal OCPD officer in 1988, and remained with the department until 2015. Bernal worked the patrol division, narcotics unit and the major crimes unit, but spent the majority of his time in the criminal investigation unit. He is known outside of Ocean City as the lead detective in the Sifrit murder case of 2002. “Six or seven months after I moved here I was in the Ocean City Police Department. After one year on the job here, I put in for the quick response team,” he said. The quick response team is the resort’s analogue for the SWAT team. “Normally, it takes three years,” Bernal said, but with his previous tactical training, he was promoted early, eventually leading the team for 13 years. Bernal said he is the current record holder for handgun accuracy at the police academy, and has been for many years. He’s achieved the highest proficiency with the weapon, as a master, and was a firearms instructor with the OCPD and at the academy. “You need an accuracy of 248/250 for three years to become a master. I’ve never had less than 250/250,” he said. He’s certified in the use of a 9mm Beretta, .357 revolvers and .40 caliber Sig Sauer — which is his preferred weapon.

“I’m going to make sure thee officers are the best they can be. It’s easy to miss a target if you don’t train properly,” he said. During the summer when certain areas of Worcester County are more populated than others, and if there’s an incident requiring a tactical response, Bernal said he’s Scott Bernal keenly aware of what can happen with a stray bullet. He said he’s also engaged suspects in less lethal circumstances risking injury or worse because he didn’t want to draw his weapon during an altercation. “Our best tool is our mouth, to talk out situations that are escalating,” he said. Technology is also a big part of the Bernal platform. He said he is seeking donations of equipment and services to ensure Worcester County’s place as one of the safest in the country. “President Obama stopped the flow of military surplus to local police departments because he didn’t want to fight fire with fire. I want to fight fire with 10 fires,” Bernal said. One of these devices is made by a company founded by Stephen Decatur High School graduate Robert Hilliard, who has designed a device to coordinate armed response to an armed threat. The device looks like a small camper, which administers a host of other operations from security camera feeds to odor sniffers to detect explosives to managing drone deployment. Bernal said he wants to install one of these stations at each area school in case a quick, coordinated response is warranted. “If a gunshot is heard in a school the cameras are trained to zoom in on the suspect and you get immediate facial and body contour imaging. Maybe you can ID the weapon and follow them around the school to know where they’re going,” he said. “This is what I’m bringing to the table. I’m showing, not telling.”

Heiser sets three goals for State’s Attorney’s office run Priorities include protecting vulnerable victims, fighting addiction, engaging people

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Kris Heiser has spent the past seven years in the State’s Attorney’s Office in Wicomico, after her time in Joel Todd’s administration in Worcester ended in 2011, and now she’s hoping to make a full-time return to her home county to prosecute offenders. She said her approach is methodical, disciplined and detailed. “I’ve got three overall goals, but the second two can’t really happen without the first one,” she said. “The overarching goal is to shift to community-oriented proactive prosecution.” Similar to community policing, the idea is to assign certain prosecutors to certain geographic areas within the county and then allowing those prosecutors to establish a rapport with the people. “You put a face with the name. You go to events, and hopefully you live in the area where you’re assigned so people know what you do and can reach out when people think you can help,” she said. “Someone who was hesitant to come forward before might have a solution.” Next, she wants to take a multidisciplinary approach to fighting opioid addiction. “Addiction doesn’t discriminate, families have been touched by addiction everywhere — even mine,” Heiser said. She said her uncle succumbed to addition at the beginning of the year. “It’s a huge priority and we have to fight it on every level, and you can only do that if people are talking to each other,” she said. “Everyone has good ideas, and we have to focus on the little bit we can do.” However, in her mind, addicts and the dealers that supply them should be treated differently. She said addicts

should be in treatment while dealers should be in jail. Finally, her third goal is to protect what she calls “vulnerable victims” like seniors and children. “I’ve seen the elderly get taken advantage of, or not get the proper treatment or has a family member that is an addict stealing from them. People sometimes fall through Kris Heiser the cracks,” she said. Fixing the issue is first becoming aware of it, she said, and increased contact with the community could lead to increased help for people in these situations. “Worcester needs a prosecutor that can help make change,” Heiser said. “Being a prosecutor means seeking justice in every case but it doesn’t mean you have to wait until the damage is done.” For 10 years under five different state’s attorney’s, Heiser said she has been honing the skills, picking what she likes and doesn’t like about individual strategies and preparing for the day when she’d run for state’s attorney. “The people I’ve hired and supervised are now trying their own drug distribution and robbery cases. I’ve built a good team in Wicomico and I can do it in Worcester,” she said. She said she went to Wicomico to broaden her experience. “It was different. More violent, different crime and different people,” she said. She said it was in this environment where she developed the ideas she would follow through on in this campaign, and would rather focus on those ideas than just trying cases. “A lot of times people are focused on trial skills as a large portion of the job, and after a decade I’ve tried every kind of case,” she said. “Where I like to focus is on the intangible qualities of a leader: judgment, ethics, treating everyone the same and ensuring everyone gets a fair trial. Seeking justice is the only job.”

Primary winner likely takes office House District 38C contest pits three Republicans with zero Democrats registered

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Republican voters in Maryland’s House of Delegates District 38C primary election on June 26 will select their next representative from among three candidates, as no Democratic candidate is registered for a primary election challenge in November. Independent and third-party candidates have until July 2 to register. On the crowded Republican ticket are Ocean City Councilman Wayne Hartman, Joe Schanno and Ed Tinus. Hartman, whose City Council term ends next year, is a native of Baltimore City and has been a year-round Ocean City resident for nearly two decades. Speaking from the campaign trail on Tuesday, Hartman was near the Salisbury Airport drumming up support. “I’ve been very well received out here,” he said. “The campaign seems to be going well.” Maryland House District 38C encompasses parts of Worcester and Wicomico counties. With past experience on the Worcester County Planning Commission and Technical Review Committee, as well as serving as treasurer for the Ocean City Development Corporation, Hartman said he hopes voters are enthused by his background in small business and elected office. “I’ve been focused on positive messages and what I can do moving forward,” he said. Ocean Pines resident Joe Schanno, who graduated from Stephen Decatur

High School in 2002 and Salisbury University in 2007, became involved in local politics as a teenager. During the campaign, Schanno picked up several key endorsements, including the Maryland Farm Bureau, plus an Wayne Hartman A-rating from the National Rifle Association. “That showcases and highlights my commitment to the entire district,” he said. “Agriculture is one of the biggest Jim Shaffer drivers of the economy in the counties and the district.” Schanno, who has worked for and donated exclusively to Republican candidates during his political and professional Joe Schanno career, estimated visiting nearly 2,000 constituents during the primary campaign. “I made it my commitment to go everywhere,” he said. “I knocked on almost every door in my district.” After losing the District 38 State Delegate Republican primary in 2010, Schanno worked with Rick Santorum’s unsuccessful 2012 presidential bid and joined the [Larry] Hogan for Governor campaign as Eastern Shore director in August 2014. In February 2015, Gov. Hogan appointed Schanno as special assistant to the secretary for the Department of Natural Resources. Whaleyville resident Ed Tinus, a

master upholsterer, although currently registered as a Republican has engaged in past political contests as an Independent and Democrat. In 2016, Tinus ran for U.S. Senate from Maryland as a Democrat and lost the primary to Chris Van Hollen, before losing as an independent write-in candidate. In 2012, the outcome was the same when he challenged incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin. Regardless of party affiliation, Tinus hopes to foster “direct democracy, by engaging the public with the legislative process. “During the last General Assembly session, in 90 days there were 3,000 bills, and all the associated verbiage,” he said. “That’s impossible for any representative.” Tinus is hoping to use technology, specifically an “Ed app,” to have volunteers read proposed legislation and red flag issues of concern. Tinus also envisions simplified legislation in the form of single-subject bills, written for ease of comprehension. The Maryland Right to Life, an affiliate of the National Right to Life political action committee, has endorsed Tinus for the 38C election. “Do you want to vote with me in Annapolis?” he said. “I need your help … engage with me through the process.” Candidate Jim Shaffer who was unavailable for a previous interview subsequently ended his campaign. Early voting for the primary election takes place from June 14-21 with polls open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Gull Creek Senior Center Community Sunroom in Berlin. Polls will be open for the June 26 Primary Election from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information visit co.worcester.md.us/departments/ele ctions

Mini golf mini dinosaur recovered By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Nick Geracimos was making his usual morning circuit visiting his miniature golf courses last week when he discovered some of the large fiberglass dinosaur displays had been knocked over at his 125th Street location, and one was missing. This being senior week and the start of the summer, some light property damage is to be expected, even if not anticipated. When Geracimos went back to check the security cameras, he saw the sus-

pects knock over the displays and make off with the dino about 3 a.m. last Thursday. The missing dino, dubbed “Rex” sparked a massive social media outcry which, to Nick’s mind, is responsible for the rescue. Rex was discovered on a lifeguard stand about a day later with a note stating the display had “raged too hard” and was “sorry.” It was a humorous end to what could have been a serious situation — Rex, Geracimos said, would cost about $1,000 to replace and shipping the spe-

cial order item would take weeks. “I’m not an angry person, but I only have three months to make money, so I have to get it while I can. It’s so dumb, I don’t want to deal with this,” he said. “In the video, he was tossed over the fence. Another one has a large crack,” he said. “I’m thankful for the people who helped us out — if that didn’t happen they’d probably have kept it.” OCPD spokeswoman Lindsay Richard said the suspects were identified as recent high school graduates who could face charges. “While we encourage visiting high

Ashtrays west of Boardwalk under discussion in OC

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) With the Boardwalk and beach smoking ban recently expanded to include vaping and cannabis, addressing the proliferation of cigarette butts in adjacent areas could be next on the drawing board. Councilman Tony DeLuca broached the subject during the City Council meeting last Monday, noting that city government’s “Green Team” plans to delve into providing butt receptacles in areas just before reaching the Boardwalk. During a Green Team meeting this spring, Public Works Director Hal Adkins said the smoking ban, which went into effect in May 2015, has reduced the number of discarded cigarette butts on the Boardwalk, but the same cannot be said for surrounding areas. Effie Cox, Ocean City Surf Club environmental chairwoman, credited the Stephen Decatur High School’s Connections student service group for highlighting the concern during a Green Team meeting earlier this year. “It was high school kids that reached out and were talking about cigarette butts,” she said. Connections is a student-developed

The driver of this car caught an unexpected wave while turning on Coastal Highway from 127th Street bayside, with heavy rain causing scattered flooding last Saturday.

Police divert traffic in north OC due to flooding problem

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) A combination of a stalled weather system, sustained winds and heavy rain flooded the northern portion of Ocean City last weekend, necessitating the closure of Coastal Highway north of 94th Street for about three hours. While flooding is relatively frequent towards the south end of the island, the same forces are basically at play and can happen anywhere in the resort. Ocean City is set up to drain stormwater into the bay. However, if water covers those drainpipes, as it did last weekend, there is nowhere for the water to go, resulting in flooding. “We had a storm cell that hung over Ocean City at the north end, but then it eventually expanded south. We had about 7.5 inches of rain that led to

flooding,” Joe Theobald, emergency services director, said. He confirmed the municipal drainage system was inundated. Traffic was diverted from Coastal Highway, which became impassible due to flood waters, to Route 1 via Route 54 traveling north and through side streets heading south. The closures were not enough to stop some motorists from trying to reach or rescue their vehicles. “We didn’t have any injuries reported, and some light calls for service for stranded vehicles,” Theobald said. “They had attempted to drive out through the standing water, which we tell them not to do, so we had some rescues.” He said the fire department’s high water vehicle made several rescues and transports that day, but overall, things went smoothly.

Options for cigarette smokers Continued from Page 10 they saw a problem,” she said. “We were responding to the kids.” Launched in 2016, the Adopt Your Beach program accepts volunteers willing to work at least four times a year and encourages the use of data sheets to track the types of trash removed. “We need something at the head of street for people to use,” she said. Cox also said construction sites are an area where cigarette butts tend to proliferate. Based on past experience pursing grant funding, specifically from the Worcester County Health Department, Cox said potential resources should be obtainable. “There’s grant money available if public works would maintain them,” she said. In addition to protecting the public from involuntary exposure to smoke and vapor on the Boardwalk and beach, the ban also prohibits smoking

or vaping at all public parks in Ocean City and within a 15-foot radius of bus shelters. Smoking or vaping is permitted within 15 feet of designated smoking areas located along the beach, directly off the Boardwalk, and in marked areas of Northside Park. Smoking ordinance violations are subject to a fine of up to $500. In addition to police and public safety aides, citations can be also be issued by recreation and park officials, animal control officers, fire department officials, Beach Patrol members, building officials or licensing inspectors. DeLuca told the council on June 4 the Green Team will discuss its next steps to obtain funding when it meets again in July. If successful, DeLuca envisions the initiative expanding uptown.

Returning seasonal officers plant OC roots

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) After getting to know the community last year, OCPD seasonal officers Elaine Miller, Nicole Stanziale and Gavin Kinzer have all reenlisted for another summer of law enforcement in Ocean City. The trio are part of an upswing that OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro reported to the Police Commission in April. “Last year, we had three returning seasonal officers [and] this year there are 18,” he said. In total, Ocean City will hire about 70 seasonal officers and 90 public safety aides to bolster summer staffing. The return assignment reunites Miller and Stanziale, who were roommates when not patrolling the streets together last summer. “I love it down here and I had never been to Ocean City before I came down here,” Stanziale said. “We live together and are always at the pool or the beach.” Stanziale said the seaside resort was a stark change from her home in Sparta, New Jersey “It took a minute for us to get acclimated during the summer,” she said. “It’s nice when you come back … and you don’t have to go through the awkward first week … where no one really

knows each other.” Anne Arundel County native Miller said, regardless of home’s proximity, her path to the beach seemed preordained. “My mom was a Elaine Miller seasonal [officer] in the 1980s and my dad was a [Maryland] state trooper and they met [in Ocean City,]” she said. “They’ve been married since 1988.” Kinzer, a native of Nicole Stanziale Hampton, Connecticut was eager to return after working foot and bike patrol in 2017. “I was on dayshift downtown below 18th Street [and] learned lots,” he said. “Coming Gavin Kinzer back was an easy decision and I hope to stay on full time.” As a rookie in 2017, Kinzer gained a quick appreciation for the significance of engaging merchants and residents. “Going out in the community to learn what’s going on from the people,” he said. “I found it was essential

to do the job completely.” Miller and Stanziale also came to recognize the importance of establishing a sound community dialogue while on daytime patrol uptown north of 18th Street last summer. “Dayshift is a lot of people waving you down just to talk,” Stanziale said. Miller learned visibility and accessibility are crucial to making inroads with residents. “I drive with my windows down when I’m running the backstreets,” she said. “I’ve met a bunch of locals that stop to wave because my windows are down.” Last year, all three seasonal officers were enthused to discover a workplace environment that fostered inclusion and development. “We’re completely sworn,” Stanziale said. “Obviously, you’re a seasonal, but they don’t treat you like you’re less.” Miller said her desire to return this season was due in large part to a perceived sense of respect from superiors. “They trust us to go out and do our own thing,” she said. “Going out to work with them out on the streets was awesome. I love coming to work every day.” Kinzer, a senior at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia majoring

in criminal justice, with a concentration in juvenile justice, said the department’s leadership may have outshined past professors. “Four months in Ocean City was probably more beneficial,” he said. Miller, a criminal justice major at the University of Maryland who worked as a police cadet in Howard County two years previously, is hoping to plant roots on the shore. “I’m in the process of the full-time academy here,” she said. “I already started my application and the next academy is in July.” While Stanziale is still contemplating her next steps since graduating in December from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania, she figures to stay busy as a seasonal officer until the fall. “Looking ahead to my future, I’ll be at work tomorrow [and] past that we’ll figure it out,” she said. “After just the couple weekends I’ve been back in [Ocean City] I don’t know if I want to go back home.” With marriage plans in the wings next year, Kinzer feels optimistic about attending the police academy to begin a career path in law enforcement locally. “The opportunity to get to know, help and protect is something I live for,” he said.

Task force finds Cruisin’ hassles decreased By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Although weather issues skewed statistics, the general consensus among city officials is last month’s Cruisin’ event remained relatively calm and uneventful. Police Chief Ross Buzzuro provided statistical and anecdotal evidence during a meeting of the Motor Events Task Force meeting Wednesday. “All in all, were moving in the right direction,” he said. “Friday night was almost a virtual washout [but] Saturday was a little bit of an indicator of what to expect moving forward.” The task force first met in December and was formed to address concerns following car events last fall. It helped foster a state bill to permit

Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro told the Motor Events Task Force on Wednesday the worst behaviors appeared to diminish during last the Cruisin’ Ocean City last month.

special event zones with reduced speeds and increased fines. The measure was signed into law by Gov. Larry Hogan in April.

“We wanted that message to get out and be proactive,” he said. “Obviously, there is still a lot of work that has to be done.”

Buzzuro said 467 traffic citations were issued during Cruisin’ Ocean City last month, about a hundred fewer than the 568 written in 2017. “Crime indicators were virtually cut in half from years past,” he said. “Serious crime was also cut down considerably.” Buzzuro said other bad behavior, such as spinning wheels, seemed less prevalent. “Collisions were down 60 percent in relation to … previous years,” he said. “I think the special event zones worked [and] the collisions tell that tale.” Mayor Rick Meehan said there were clear visual indicators that Cruisin was less problematic than in prior years. “That’s a good thing because that really hurts our community [and] it reminds you weeks after the event what’s been happening.” Meehan said he attended the Cruisin’ gathering at the inlet parking lot on Sunday to award trophies and found most participants supportive of the city’s recent efforts to reign in unruly factions. “I had a number of people ... say, ‘You know you did the right thing. You may lose some people, but there are other people who will want to come,’” he said. Buzzuro said, in addition to heightened fine schedules, the resort See POLICE Page 16

Police find ‘aggressive behaviors’ curtailed Continued from Page 14 also had a full complement of officers from allied law enforcement agencies. “We had a lot of officers saturating the town,” he said. “On Friday and Saturday, we had close to 200 on hand.” Buzzuro said about 10 percent, 45 in total, of the citations issued included higher fine amounts. “They have the option to take it to court [where] it could go higher or lower. It depends on the judge,” he said. Meehan was quick to note the inflated fines were not a money-making scheme by the city. “We don’t get that revenue; it goes to the state,” he said. “That’s not the reason we do that, it’s for enforcement.” Bob Rothermel of TEAM Productions, which organizes the Cruisin’ events with Jack Hennen’s Special Event Productions, said although the city changed every speed limit on Coastal Highway, better messaging is needed for future events. “I drive up and down that highway, like we all do, and I don’t see the signs anymore,” he said. Police Capt. Mike Colbert said the State Highway Administration recommended limiting variable message

signs to a pair of panels. “If you go more than that, people don’t read it or pay attention,” he said. Rothermel said although the variable message boards alerted motorists about reduced speeds, a number of participants suggested attaching orange flags to draw attention to changed signs. Colbert also said the variable message signs should reference the actual speed limit. “We heard the same thing: its reduced but is it reduced from 30,” he said. Meehan said lessons were learned during the initial use of the special event zones. “This year we were under the gun to get those 30 mph signs up and time made that difficult to do,” he said. “There are other sign designs that we could use.” Councilman Tony DeLuca reported that some residents near 120th Street continued to voice concerns over the propensity for throngs to gather outside nearby businesses. “The CVS and the Wawa — it’s just wall to wall,” he said. Maybe the task force could trouble shoot for … solutions [and] involve the business owners up there.” Buzzuro said police officials met

with Wawa management before the event and that they hired extra security to manage the crowds. “That’s kind of the epicenter up north where everyone gravitates,” he said. “Although there were a good bit of people, for the most part … they were peaceful [and] in a festive mood,” he said. Despite the improvement, Buzzuro said the police department is still hoping to negotiate with CVS to gain permission to monitor the parking lot after hours. “When they shut down, we’re kind of left holding the bag,” he said. “There’s a great number of people on that lot and without that authority, we really are limited in how we can address those things.” Meehan agreed and took the notion another step. “Maybe get businesses from that intersection together,” he said. “We should work to get CVS on board and then have a meeting with everybody in that area.” Looking ahead, Buzzuro said the city would institute special event zones for the H2O International and Endless Summer Cruisin this fall, but to this point are not including OC Bikefest. “There’s nothing we’ve seen that

would necessitate establishing a special event zone for Bike Week,” he said. While the H2Oi event has been relocated from Fort Whaley to Atlantic City, Buzzuro said the city would still prepare for an onslaught. “We believe we’re going to still see a presence,” he said. “In September, as we get closer, we’ll know a little bit more.” Meehan agreed the event would continue to have an impact for the immediate future. “As the new event starts to take place it’s going to take some time for everybody to transition,” he said. “Hopefully it’ s a very successful, accommodating event.” Ultimately, Meehan said the efforts to maintain public safety should not bother anyone with the right intentions. “If you’re not here to break the law, then none of things we’re doing should bother you,” he said. “If they are, then they can go to Atlantic City.” The task force will reconvene following the fall car events to assess the results of the safety measures, but Buzzuro feels the early indicators are positive. “We just did not see the level of aggressive behavior that we have in years past,” he said.

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) The State Highway Administration will once again juggle the lanes on the section of Route 113 on Monday, this time between Langmaid Road and Five Mile Branch, and if everything goes to plan, will also juggle them again by Wednesday. The state is nearing the end of this portion of the highway expansion project, and contractors have already begun Phase 4, the last road construction phase of the ongoing dualization project. Phase 3 was due to be open at the end of spring, but with the formal date for that transition rapidly approaching, the administration is hesitant to exercise its right to charge penalties. “Generally, there are provisions in construction contracts for assessing liquidated damages if a project runs beyond a specified time.  However, there are many factors that influence time calculations, e.g., weather, unforeseen obstacles, design changes, property acquisitions, late utility relocations, etc.,” Bob Rager, district community liaison for the SHA, said. “So it’s never a simple matter of looking at a calendar and saying a project is late.” Rager said the SHA doesn’t want to assess damages unless they’re

clearly warranted. “Our preference always is to keep a project moving forward, maintaining a constructive dialogue with the contractor so we can give the public what we promise while the contractor makes a reasonable profit for quality work,” he said. As for the lane relocation set to start Monday, he was more descriptive. “We’ll put drivers on the right lane of the southbound roadway, keeping northbound traffic where it is now on the right lane of the northbound roadway. This will allow us to do final surface paving on the northbound left lane and complete the median work at Langmaid Road,” he said.  “Around June 20 we’ll put northbound traffic on the left lane so we can complete surface paving on the right lane.” The caveat, of course, is the weather. While Phase 3 is less susceptible to weather conditions than the next part of the project, which is still clearing the ground for a future roadway, it is by no means impervious. As for the future, Rager said motorists could expect both day and night work as the new date to have this phase of the project completely open and operating is the July 4 weekend. “The end is in sight,” Rager said.

First recovery house moves forward Case came before Berlin Board of Appeals, but turns out, no appeal necessary

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) While a full house turned out last Wednesday for a Berlin Board of Zoning Appeals hearing about a proposed Hope4Recovery house in the town, the audience didn’t have to stay long. According to Board Chairman Joe Moore, an attorney, the hearing was not necessary, as the nonprofit recovery home proposed for 10226 Old Ocean City Boulevard meets the requirement of the B-1 District in which it resides. The conditional-use request was to operate “a group home providing individuals with substance-related or addictive disorders within the B-1 Town Center District,” Moore said. According to Moore, Planning Director Dave Engelhart last Tuesday received a letter from attorney Hugh Cropper, representing Hope4Recovery, stating his opinion on the use within current code. In a game of musical attorneys, Town Attorney David Gaskill then re-

sponded to Cropper. Gaskill, present last Wednesday, said Sec. 108-435 (10) of town code, on the B-1 Town Center District, includes boarding houses in its list of permitted uses. “A boarding house is defined by our zoning code … as a dwelling containing not more than six guest rooms where lodging is provided with or without meals for compensation, for persons not transient,” Gaskill said. “Due to the fact that the proposed Hope4Recovery house will have six or less bedrooms, will provide lodging for compensation, and is an extended-stay facility – which is not for transients – it is my opinion that it’s fairly debatable that the proposed house meets the definition of a boarding house. “Therefore, it is my opinion that the proposal is a principal permitted use in the B-1 zone and a hearing on this matter is not necessary,” he added. Moore noted that, as town attorney, Gaskill was also the attorney for the planning director, who did not object. “Obviously, we appreciate your help [and] we appreciate the staff’s help,” Cropper said. “We agree with the interpretation, and I guess it

would be appropriate for us to withdraw our request for a special exception.” Moore apologized for the lack of communication with the public, saying the attorney opinions had only been written one day earlier. He added an appeal to the board could be made under Sec.108-189 of town code “by any person aggrieved by any decision of the administrative officer; or by any officer, department, board or bureau affected by any decision of the planning director. Such appeal will be taken within 20 days after the decision by filing with the planning director and with the board of appeals … a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof.” “We’re not suggesting anything other than because there was not an opportunity for the folks [in attendance to weigh in] … I just thought it was fair that you all be notified of the procedures should anyone desire to do so. There’s not any suggestion whatsoever – it’s simply a statement of the provision of the code,” Moore said. After the ruling, the majority of attendees spilled into the lobby to congratulate Hope4Recovery board See HOPE4RECOVERY Page 21

Hope4Recovery finds new location Continued from Page 20 members and, especially, Executive Director Patrice Ottey. Immediately after the hearing, Ottey said she also had just been made aware the exception was deemed unnecessary. She said Cropper was hired “several weeks ago.” “I don’t know that it’s hit yet for me,” she said of the apparent approval. “I’m kind of taking it all in.” In March, Ottey and Hope4Recovery Board members attended a Town Council meeting to introduce themselves and discuss preliminary plans for a recovery house on William Street in the residential district. A hearing was scheduled with the Board of Zoning Appeals, but pulled shortly before it was scheduled to occur. In an interview in March, board members said they would not pursue developing the William Street home, near Berlin Intermediate School, and would instead regroup and look for another location in town. Ottey, an Ocean Pines Police officer, founded a similar house, the Douglas K. Hamilton House for Recovery, in the Newton neighborhood of Salisbury last year. In March, she said the proposed house in Berlin would be an all-male facility and a “level two” accredited dwelling. Level one houses are selfrun and level two include a live-in

house manager. She said the average stay is about three months in Salisbury and the facility is often short on space, receiving several applications each day. Patients who enter the home must abstain from using illegal drugs and alcohol, Ottey said. Random drug screenings are performed three times per week. Clients must attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings and additional outpatient or intensive outpatient meetings. Employment is also required within the first two weeks. “We have an open-door policy at the Salisbury house, which we’ll have down here. Any moment of the day, the health department or probation officer or anybody can call and say, ‘I would like to come either verify they

live there or see this place,’” Ottey said in March. “[The residents] know the house always needs to be presentable.” Last Wednesday, she said the home would be identical to the one previously proposed. “From here, we’ll work with Berlin to open the house,” she said. “It’s a wonderful day for Worcester County,” board President Sarah Hooper added. Board Secretary Dr. Robert Hooper said the home would be the first of its kind in Worcester County. “Our focus will be on looking at people attempting to capture their disease and move forward with their life, and this is the first home in this county that is focused on that,” he said. “It’s rather amazing, but it is and we’re thankful for that.”

OC rental license revenues boosted by mass mailings

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Ocean City government has seen rental license revenues increase more than $65,000 since mailing letters that outline compliance details to all rental property owners this spring. Finance Director Chuck Bireley said the mass mailing has thus far resulted in 465 new rental applications, a roughly six percent increase over the approximately 7,600 licenses issued last year. “We wanted to come up with a letter that would inform,” he said. “ It was intended to be educational.” Anyone renting housing units in Ocean City is required to obtain a license and noise permit.

OC Walk Smart campaign kicks off sixth year

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Maryland Department of Transportation representatives gathered with Ocean City officials Tuesday at 49th and Coastal Highway to kick off the annual pedestrian safety campaign. Highway Administrator Gregory Slater joined Ocean City Mayor Richard Meehan, Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro, Ocean City Greater Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Melanie Pursel and “Cheswick,” the Ocean City lifeguard crab mascot, to cut a ribbon in celebration of the completion of the new median fence. “I’m thrilled to be here today and it’s hard to believe this is the sixth news conference we’ve held now to celebrate the Walk Smart program,” Meehan said. “It’s truly amazing to see how much has been done in five short years to improve pedestrian safety in Ocean City.” To enhance pedestrian safety along Coastal Highway, the SHA recently completed a 2.7-mile, $8.4 million project that includes new pedestrian median fencing between Route 90 and Convention Center Drive near 40th Street. “The committee and the people that worked on this are committed to the three Es that make this campaign

successful,” Meehan said. “That’s education, enforcement and engineering. You look at the fence put along Coastal Highway and it’s an example of what we can do working together to try and make sure our residents and visitors are safe while they’re here in Ocean City.” The median fence joins other infrastructure and engineering improvements including new signals, signal timing adjustments, new signs, and sidewalk upgrades completed over the last five years as part of a comprehensive pedestrian safety improvement project. “Safety is very personal to me,” Slater said. “During the summer months, my family comes to Ocean City. We walk, drive, bike down Coastal Highway nearly every day. At MDOT SHA, we’re our own customers. I’m my own customer. “I remain committed to enhancing safety in Ocean City and across the state,” he continued. “The fencing is a great representation of that commitment.” Elected officials, including Sen. Jim Mathias and Delegate Mary Beth Carozza, both candidates for the State Senate this fall,were also at the conference to show their support for public safety. In 2017, there were two fatalities on Ocean City highways; a 50-per-

Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration’s Administrator Gregory Slater talks about the importance of pedestrian safety during the Walk Smart campaign ribbon cutting on Tuesday, June 12. The ceremony celebrated the success of the median fences built along Coastal Highway from Route 90 to Convention Center Drive near 40th Street.

cent increase from 2016. The program and the fences were designed with a zero fatalities goal in mind for 2018 and beyond. “The summer is well underway,” Chief Buzzuro said. “We can see hundreds of pedestrians walking up and down Coastal Highway from the inlet to the Delaware line. The goal of the Walk Smart program is to keep every single one of those pedestrians safe. That’s the business I’m in —public safety.”

Completing the median fence is one of several projects designed to make travel to and on the Eastern Shore faster, safer and better, a state highway department statement said. Major projects are underway or recently have been competed from Annapolis to Ocean City, valued at nearly $328 million. This is one of SHA’s largest construction seasons in history, with 506 active or advertised projects totaling approximately $3.7 billion.

Resort reminds motorists to expect delays with Air Show (June 15, 2018) The Town of Ocean City is reminding residents and visitors to expect traffic delays during the Ocean City Air Show on Saturday, June 16, and Sunday, June 17. Traffic congestion is expected in the downtown area from the Route 50 Bridge to north of 33rd Street each day from 11 a.m. through 5 p.m. One way around this is to take advantage of the municipal bus system. Buses stand ready leaving every few minutes at the Park and Ride Lot on Route 50 and also the Tanger Outlets across Route 50. Regular bus service on Coastal Highway starting at 144th Street at the Ocean City Northside Transit Station will be leaving southbound every ten minutes or less. Buses may be boarded at any stop that are located every other block between the 144th Street Station and 17th Street where the Air Show can be accessed. “This is the absolute best way to avoid traffic and parking issues,” said Ocean City Transit Manager Mark Rickards. “Leave your home, condo or hotel and board the bus with $3 per person all day pass. Buses run 24-7 with no worries about missing the last one. Drivers are there to help as well. Just look for the blue barrels and the Beach Bus sign on both sides of Coastal Highway.” Also, to make life even easier, when

leaving the Air Show in the afternoon, simply head back to 17th Street for the Park and Ride buses and head back to your personal transportation at the Park and Ride Lot on Route 50. Police Officers will be available to direct buses out in the traffic. Buses and bikes have dedicated travel lanes of coastal highway from 15th Street to the 144th Street Station. Bus stops along Coastal Highway will also be available for your trip back to the Northside/mid-town areas. Special ticket agents will be available at the Park and Ride Lot on the 16th and 17th for allow for easy and quick access to the bus. Restrooms are available. If boarding a bus to buy an all-day pass, one must have exact change to purchase a pass. Remember to have your pass/ticket ready to go when boarding the bus to speed boarding and get everyone back to where they want to go. Also the Boardwalk Trams will continue to operate except at the full height of the air show given crowd levels on the boardwalk. Trams will operate from the 27th Street Station on the Boardwalk to the First Street Station near the Inlet. The tram stops upon request. “Our goal is for everyone to have a safe and fun Air Show and Father’s Day Weekend,” Rickards said. “And don’t forget your bus ticket!”

Continued from Page 21 are subject to inspections for occupancy rates, as well as fire and safety standards. Single-family or condo owners who rent their property are required to obtain an annual rental license for $116 and a noise ordinance permit for $25. The cost for rental licenses in R-1 districts is $166. Rental property owners are required to charge a 4.5 percent room tax, payable to Worcester County, and a 6 percent sales tax, payable to the State of Maryland. Last summer, as the city continued to wrestle with tracking unlicensed shortterm rentals advertised through online hosting platforms such as Airbnb or VRBO, Bireley said other means to encourage compliance began to percolate. “We needed to crack down on those without licenses,” he said. “A few ideas were tossed about towards end of last year.” Unlicensed rentals are subject to an initial fine of $500, which doubles if the property is not in compliance within 15 days. If the property remains unlicensed after 30 days, a $1,000 per day fine is assessed. Bireley said in December the city crafted a letter to inform all rental property owners of compliance requirements and potential penalties.

“People can’t, at least theoretically, say you didn’t tell us,” he said. “It wasn’t our intent to say we’re going to come after and penalize you.” To avoid overcrowding rentals and maintaining safety standards, minimum floor area requirements are established for bedrooms, dining and living areas. These include minimum bedroom sizes of 70 square feet, to include 40 square feet per person, as well as at least 120 square feet of living space. Rental properties with three to five tenants require at least 200 square feet of combined living /dining space, which increases to 250 square feet for six or more individuals. The Property Review and Enforcement Strategies for Safe-housing committee, or P.R.E.S.S., coordinates housing regulation enforcement between numerous city departments, including police, building, zoning, fire marshal and rental licensing. Citizens with concerns or complaints are asked to call the Office of Planning and Community Development at 410-289-8855. Ultimately, Bireley said the letter’s message boils down to one thought. “If you don’t comply, here’s what the penalties are,” he said. “The information was already on the town website but how many people access that I don’t know.”

Annual OC Air Show this weekend

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will headline the 11th annual Ocean City Air Show this weekend, which showcases a number of military aircrafts performing acrobatic displays over the beach downtown on Saturday and Sunday. Although the show does not officially begin until Saturday, events kick off Friday with a Jack Daniels Take Off Party at Brass Balls Saloon, located between 11th and 12th streets on the Boardwalk, at 7 p.m. It is free to attend and open to the public. It will feature musical entertainment and a chance to meet pilots, jumpers and flight crews. “The finale will be the OC Air Show Performer Party at Ocean Downs on Saturday, June 16, at 7 p.m.,” said Chris Dirato, director of public relations for the OC Air Show. “It will feature a twilight parachute jump by the “Para-Commandos” and a fireworks display.” On Saturday, performers include the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, C-17 Globemaster III, L-39 Cold War Era Jet Demo, U.S. Coast Guard Search & Rescue Demo, P-51 Mustang Demo, GEICO Skytypers, United States Special Operations Command Parachute Team – the “Para-Commandos,” B25 Mitchell “Panchito” WWII Bomber and aerobatic pilot Scott Francis. The display village lining the Boardwalk from 14th to 20th streets will open at 9 a.m. for guests to visit various information booths and talk to military recruiters about the Thun-

derbirds and other performances. “Air Show Center (or the “Aerial 50-yard line”) for the OC Air Show is at 16th Street on the beach,” Dirato said. “The event site extends from 14th Street to 17th Street.” Weather permitting, the air show will officially start at noon with the Thunderbirds taking to the sky at around 3:15 p.m. for a 30- to 40minute performance. Onlookers can watch as the eightpilot team, celebrating 65 years as the Air Force’s Ambassadors in Blue, performs precise aerial maneuvers and formation flying. “We are ecstatic the Thunderbirds will be performing in Ocean City,” Dirato said. “They are world renowned and will certainly put on a great show. They are great representatives of our U.S. Air Force.” A new demonstration by the GEICO Skytypers will take place Saturday and Sunday. The GEICO Skytypers fly six SNJs powered by 600-horsepower Pratt and Whitney engines. As WWII training aircraft, the SNJs were designed to perform all the maneuvers of fighter planes from the same era, but at slower speeds. “We are excited to reveal a new routine to our supporters for the 2018 Air Show season,” Lead Solo Pilot Steve Salmirs stated in a press release. “There is more dynamic maneuvering from the various aircraft, additional interaction between the plans in the air show air space, and some surprise elements developed to enhance and highlight the aircraft and pilots’ capabilities.”

A majority of the team’s low-level flying demonstration takes place in front of the crowd. The team will demonstrate more than 20 periodspecific tactical maneuvers during its 18-minute performance. “We consider it an honor to demonstrate the amazing abilities of these vintage warbirds on behalf of our sponsor, GEICO, while sharing some rarely seen aviation history with air show crowds,” Team Flight Lead Larry Arken stated in a press release. A performance from the B-25 Mitchell “Panchito” WW II Bomber will commemorate the 76th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid on Japan in April of 1942. The Northern American B-25 Mitchell is a twin-engine medium bomber plane used by many Allied air forces during World War II. In addition, it was also used after the war over four decades. Ocean City Air Show fans will have a rare opportunity to take a ride in the B-25 Mitchell “Panchito” WWII Bomber for a donation of $425 per seat to the Delaware Aviation Museum. The flights will take off from the Ocean City Airport, Friday through Sunday. The plane can seat up to five people and children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. To reserve a ride, call 443-458-8926 or e-mail panchitoB25@aol.com to save a seat on the 30-minute flights.

The Air Show continues Sunday at noon with more performances by the Thunderbirds, C-5M Super Galaxy, F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and other favorites. In addition, the Coast Guard will bring along its HH-65 Daphine helicopter to demonstrate search and rescue missions for the crowd. Depending on the weather, hundreds of thousands of people watch the Ocean City Air Show from the Boardwalk, hotels, on the beach or on a boat in the ocean and bay each year, Dirato said. “While I can’t speak for the city, I can tell you that the Ocean City Air Show has clearly become an event that families plan for each year,” Dirato said. “In fact, many schedule their vacation around the show. It’s become a tradition in a sense. The show attracts fans from the entire region which clearly provides an economic benefit to the city in the form of filled hotel rooms and busy restaurants. “People should come to the show because of the family atmosphere it offers as well as having the opportunity to experience the sound of freedom,” Dirato added. “Air shows [are] inherently patriotic in theme.” As of Tuesday morning, all special packages were available for the Air

MSFA convention and conference runs June 16-22

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Firefighters, their families and the general public are invited to participate in the 126th annual convention and conference of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association and Ladies Auxiliary, June 1622. “It started as our annual business meeting and it grew over the years,” said Ron Siarnicki, convention chair. “It’s been in Ocean City for the last 69 years. It is our annual gathering for our officers, recognition and awards for significant contributions to the fire service, and also our annual memorial service to honor the members of the Maryland fire service who died this past year.” The convention is free, open to the public and takes place at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street. There will be a variety of local vendors selling merchandise and memorabilia in addition to informational and awards presentations all surrounding firefighting in Maryland. Around 14,000 first responders, their families and friends, travel to Ocean City for the event each year, according to Siarnicki. “We try to encourage as many members of the para-service to participate,” Siarnicki said. “Of course, there still has to be a service back home, so often times they work out shifts or coverage so citizens are still protected while we’re at the beach.” One of the most popular MSFA events is the parade along Baltimore Avenue, with nearly 400 units participating this year. The procession features bands, floats and fire trucks, which will line up in the inlet parking lot. The parade will begin at 1 p.m. on 16th Street and will travel up to 30th Street on Wednesday, June 20. Additional events throughout the week include the annual family night at Jolly Roger Amusement Park, Purse and Bag Bingo, a prayer breakfast, flea market, fire truck rally, block party, a corn hole tournament, family day at Frontier Town and the annual MSFA Golf Tournament. “We have a week long packed with stuff,” Siarnicki said. MSFA Night at Jolly Roger takes place Monday, June 18 from 6:30-11 p.m. at the amusement park on 30th Street. There will be music, food and unlimited rides, rounds of miniature golf and trips around the go cart track during the event. For the amusement park and food, the cost is $24 per person. A family of four for both is $80. Visit www.msfa.org for additional packages and to reserve tickets in advance. Purse and Bag Bingo also takes place Monday.

Delmarva Chorus delivers birthday wishes to Dietsch

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Concerned failing health would nix the annual birthday celebration for 95-year-old uber fan, Edward Dietsch, the Delmarva Chorus held an emotion-filled surprise performance at his family’s Whaleyville residence, last Thursday. Dietsch, who turns 96 on June 20, was a WWII combat medic with the U.S. Army’s 12th Armored Division, nicknamed the “Hellcats.” In addition to returning home with multiple Purple Hearts for near-fatal war injuries, in 2006 the French Government awarded Dietsch the Chevalier Medal of Honor. Also, in 2016 he was included in Ocean City Elks Lodge #2645 Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program. Delmarva Chorus director Carol Ludwig, who helped found the group in 2003, said Dietsch has been an avid supporter of the all-female vocal group for a number of years. “We had heard he was not doing well, so we wanted to get over there and see him,” she said. Denise Dietsch Esham said the birthday tradition began in 2012 when her father turned 90 and attended a

Health concerns brought the Delmarva Chorus out for a surprise birthday performance at the Whaleyville residence of WWII veteran Edward Dietsch, who is set to turn 96 on June 20.

weekly chorus rehearsal at the Ocean Pines Community Center, where the entire group serenaded him and held an impromptu party with cake. Chorus member Catherine Walker said each year since, Dietsch and his effervescent smile have returned for subsequent birthday crooning sessions. “We sing happy birthday, they bring cupcakes and we have a little birthday party,” she said. Fellow vocalist Char Vanvick said Dietsch has an endearing presence that always enlivens the room.

“He calls us his girls and smiles from ear to ear,” she said. Chorus member Susan Rabuck, a friend and former co-worker of Dietsch’s daughter, saw a Facebook post from Denise the previous weekend that caused alarm. “He wasn’t getting out of bed,” she said. “Denise [mentioned] on Facebook about doing some birthday celebrations before [June 20] because she wasn’t sure what’s going to happen.” Moved to action by the news, Rabuck quickly contacted Dietsch

Esham offering to orchestrate a musical house call. “I said we could come to him and she was like, ‘Oh my God, you’re kidding,’” Rabuck said. Ludwig said plans rapidly developed after Rabuck sent an email last Sunday to alert chorus members of Dietsch’s condition. “We were talking about doing something the following week closer to his birthday,” she said. “Monday night at rehearsal we said, ‘Let’s do it this See DIETSCH Page 35

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Spicy steamed shrimp with cocktail sauce By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) Seasons change and so does my schedule. Going home on a regular basis to be with family must be postponed as my itinerary during the months of summer is simply too busy. Saying goodbye is never easy; but before you know it, September will be here and I can resume family visits. Two huge coolers are packed with frozen goodies that I have prepared in the interim. Everyone looks forward to my efforts; it is always nice to sample someone else’s cooking.

In a matter of a few hours, the sandy shores of the Eastern Shore will be a reflection in my rearview window. I need to focus on what’s ahead of me. Even though I have a checkoff list, I feel I am forgetting something. As I cross the massive Bay Bridge, powdered sand and sparkling ocean water are no longer a reality. Modern urbanism is in command as continuous highways and monotonous road signs become the norm.

I do not have much time before I arrive and I am torn about what to serve on Sunday – spicy steamed shrimp with creamy, homemade coleslaw or tender, succulent shrimp salad with homemade potato salad that has been embellished with bacon and hard-boiled eggs. It only takes a few minutes to decide on steamed shrimp. With that in mind, I see the entrance to my parent’s home. Dad is no longer with us but I still refer to it as my parent’s place. I am sure a psychiatrist would have something to say about that. As the car passes through the gate of

entry, statuesque trees that line the long driveway bow and bid me “good evening.” Southern hospitality is alive and not merely a formality. Harwood, the name of my parent’s estate, is the setting for weddings and equestrian events. I know mother is asleep but she will have a much-needed glass of Pinot Grigio chilled for me. Well, maybe I’m stretching the truth a bit; it’s more like a bottle. But I do not feel guilty. I am tired and deserve a little relaxation. Just as I open the refrigerator door, I hear a soft pitter patter coming down the See SERVE Page 36

Dietsch enjoys chorus birthday performance Continued from Page 33 week.’” Despite the minimal notice, Ludwig said the bulk of the groups 23 members managed to clear time to participate. “We set it on Thursday because that’s when the majority could make it,” she said. “We had about 80 percent of the chorus.” The members quietly assembled outside the rustic Whaleyville home around 4 p.m. on June 7. Tear-filled

embraces transpired when Dietsch Esham exited the home to greet the compassionate songbirds. “He’s in bad shape right now,” Vanvick said. The chorus then huddled on the porch where Dietsch was wheeled out and looked amazed upon catching sight of the throng of well wishers. Ever the perfectionist, Ludwig said the vocalists were initially challenged to maintain pitch.

“When we first got there we hadn’t warmed up,” she said. “We were just visiting a friend [but] we got better as we went along.” Ludwig said, even in the best of circumstances, lack of melodic backing makes performing barbershop-style music a cappella uniquely challenging. “It’s the fun part, but … also the difficult part because you’re singing and … don’t have any instrumentation to keep … on pitch, especially with emo-

tional issues like that was,” she said. Following the mini-concert on the porch, Dietsch Esham invited the chorus members inside for sandwiches and snacks, while her father continued to bask in the unanticipated attention. When the private porch-side performance concluded, with Dietsch’s beaming face eliciting streams of tears from all, he summed up the experience in one word. “Whoopee,” he exclaimed.

Serve shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce Continued from Page 35 steps. Bonnie, our little Westie, greets me. Poor thing, she is getting older just like the rest of us. The sun is starting its daily dissension; the golden, orange hews blend wonderfully with the crisp, citrusy aromas of the Pinot Grigio. The horses are also winding down and sensing it is time to call it a day. I am enjoying my private time with Bonnie; even the T.V. is at rest. Silence speaks volumes if one is willing to listen. I am going to miss my family this summer. When I was younger, I wished for tomorrow. Now, I wonder where all the years have gone. As the chapters of life progress, I find myself focusing on thankfulness and not being set in my ways.

I am also becoming a fanatic about details; it is these subtle differences that determine excellence. Cooking is no exception to the rule. Allow me to explain. Ocean City is known for its seafood and perfection is a must. Traditionally, steamed shrimp are cooked in a mixture of cider vinegar, beer, water and Old Bay Seasoning. There is nothing wrong with this method, but I choose to cook my shrimp a little differently. First, I steam the shrimp (with the shells) in an actual steamer so the shrimp are not lying in a boiling broth. Steamed shrimp are more tender than shrimp that simmer in broth. The shells also protect the flesh from the harsh heat which yields a more tender shrimp. Zatarain’s Crawfish, Shrimp and Crab Boil along with Old Bay Seasoning has

Opp

much more flavor than Old Bay Seasoning by itself. The combination of seasoning are quite pungent and can flavor the shrimp through the shells. No matter what method of cooking you prefer, always devein the shrimp. Although removing the disgusting string is called “deveining,” it is not a vein, it is the shrimp’s digestive tract. Finally, there is nothing worse than overcooked shrimp. Once the clear flesh turns an opaque color, remove them from the heat. In addition, the shells stick to the overcooked shrimp which can be quite aggravating. Father’s Day is here and spicy steamed shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce will certainly warm your dad’s heart. You only have one dad, make it a special day. Enjoy! * Frozen shrimp are perfectly acceptable and make the dish more cost effective.

Father’s Day Beer Festival, Sunday

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Father’s Day is this Sunday, so treat dad to the second annual Fatherhood Beer Festival at Sunset Park on South Division Street in downtown Ocean City. Orchestrated by the State Association of Liquor License Establishments (SALLE), Event Organizer Eric Chaplin decided to host a beer festival for fathers after his inaugural Mother’s Day Winecation event was a success last year. “For a first event, I know that I had a good time,” Chaplin said about last year’s beer festival. “I had a lot of families and people who decided to come and enjoy themselves and they had a good time. We had between 50 and 75 people join us and they enjoyed themselves.”

The event raised $150 last year for prostate cancer. This year, donations will contribute to ZERO, a prostate cancer foundation. “We have a desire to give back to the community,” Chaplin said. “With SALLE, we are able to do so.” The cost is $35, which includes the sampling glass used to taste the variety of beers and barbecue served by Cultured Corners from Salisbury. Participants will also be able to enjoy live entertainment by DJ E-MAC. Sample beers from Evo, Burley Oak, Big Oyster, Fin City and 3rd Wave, among others. As a show of support for first responders, who will be holding a convention throughout the week, any first responder who participates in the event will receive a $5 discount. “We extended the hours because

on Sunday we realized that it is the starting day for [the Maryland State Firemen’s Association convention],” Chaplin said. “So now we are doing discounts for first responders so they can come and have fun.” The new hours for this year’s beer festival will be noon to 7 p.m. Chaplin will be holding more events later on this year, such as a Doorman Olympics – an obstacle course for doorman who work in the service industry – a 5K run, and a Basketball on the Beach event. In the meantime, Chaplin anticipates a large crowd because the Ocean City Air Show is also this weekend. “We are excited … more people will be in town to enjoy both the air show and Father’s Day,” Chaplin said. “If See FESTIVAL Page 40

(June 15, 2018) The Pine’eer Craft Club announces Barbara Stilwell as the crafter of the month for June. Stilwell has been part of the Pine’eer Craft Club for the past 12 years, creating her crafts and being on the board in one form or another. She moved to the area permanently from central New Jersey in 2003. One of her many crafts she loves doing is crocheting afghans. The first one was made for her first of eight grandchildren 22 years ago and she hasn’t stopped since. Many of the baby afghans and throws in the Pine’eer Artisan and Gift Shop are her creations.

There will be no shows on Fridays. “The show has slowly become a tradition for all ages at the Carousel and that is a great reason to come and enjoy the event,” Founding Director Nathan Birch said. “This year’s show is called ‘Ice Pop,’ and features popular music from different eras so there is something for everyone.” “Ice Pop has recognizable music from all different styles of pop,” performer Julia Choi, 19, said. “This show has the cast dancing back stage and will have you grooving in your seat.” Some of the songs featured during the show include “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack and See ICE Page 41

Ice skating shows Saturday through Thursday, 6:30 p.m. Continued from Page 40 Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.” The Next Ice Age performances are a favorite among Ocean City residents and visitors. “Each cast member brings something unique to the stage and we are excited to share our love of skating and performing with the audience,” skater Laura Seal, 27, said. Also returning to perform in Ocean City this season with Seal and Choi are Tess Terpos, 21, and Ian Lorello, 28. They are all from Maryland. New to The Next Ice Age crew is Richard Kahn, 21, of Chicago, who has been skating for 17 years. “I am really excited and happy to be a part of this year’s cast of The Next Ice Age performing ‘Ice Pop,’” Kahn said. “It’s a fun show for all ages.” Since spectators are standing during the “Ice Pop” show and their proximity to the action on the rink is within a few feet, performers are constantly interacting with the crowd.

Visitors are encouraged to meet the cast, ask for autographs and take pictures following The Next Ice Age performance. “We have so much fun performing it and are so excited to share that experience with the audience,” Terpos said. “The music has the power to transport you to a different time and will have you singing and dancing along.” Show dining by rinkside is the best way to watch the show, according to Birch. Those who wish to eat dinner during the show should call the hotel in advance at 410-524-1000 to make a reservation for rinkside dining. “Ice Pop is a fantastic weaving of fast-paced excitement and elegant artistry,” Lorello said. “There’s a little something for everyone.” The Next Ice Age, a nonprofit dance company on ice, has been producing skating shows for 30 years.

Use of mobile rescue units beneficial to beach patrol

By Kristin Joson Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) The Ocean City Beach Patrol didn’t always have fourwheelers as a piece of equipment. Many years ago, officers of the patrol used to run up and down the beach to assist and supervise the guards in their area. I’m sure it probably helped to keep those guys in amazing shape, but it certainly decreased their ability to supervise effectively and assist in an emergency situation. Today, each sergeant or area supervisor uses a mobile rescue unit (ATV) to adequately cover and supervise a large area of Ocean City. Typically, we have multiple ATVs on the beach each covering a specific area. These area supervisors encompass the role of a south supervisor (inlet to 23rd Street), middle south supervisor (23rd to 53rd), middle north supervisor (53rd to the Clarion (100th Street) and the north supervisor (100th to the Maryland/Delaware line). Each of these supervisors provide

supervision and leadership for all of the guards in that area, as well as responding to any and all situations that occur in their area during the day. All operators of a mobile rescue unit must have a minimum qualification as an SRT II (advanced specialized training and over 130 days experience), been promoted to an assistant crew chief position and attend specialized training which includes an eight-hour ride along with an instructor. Recertification is required each year for all mobile rescue unit operators. Although, not required by state law to operate an ATV off-road, we require a valid driver’s license and yearly copy of a clear driving record. Although the ATVs may be an annoyance sometimes to the general public enjoying their vacation in the sand, it is one of our most critical pieces of equipment in order to provide the necessary care in a medical emergency. It really comes down to how quickly we can arrive on a scene, and what equipment we carry on the mobile rescue unit and can deliver to the emergency that matters the most. First, and most importantly, the

operator of the mobile rescue unit has experience with many emergencies and will establish command and control and is in constant communication with all other departments and agencies in and around Ocean City. The most critical piece of equipment that is carried is an AED (automated external defibrillator), which is an electronic device that is able to diagnose cardiac arrhythmias and treat them with defibrillation (a shock that reestablishes an effective heart rhythm). CPR does not typically correct a

person’s heart rhythm, but rather moves blood throughout the body buying valuable time until defibrillation is available. This enables us to literally bring people back to life (clinically dead) that are in cardiac arrest on the beach and we have been very successful with these pieces of equipment over the past several summers (there are over 10 loved ones alive today because we were able to arrive quickly with this critical piece of lifesaving equipment and a highly trained resSee HAVING Page 44

ON GUARD

Having ATVs available proven effective, efficient for OCBP Continued from Page 43 cuer ready to use it). Unfortunately, each summer we have several neck and back injuries due to shore break waves or diving in shallow water as well as other medical emergencies on the beach. One important role of the ATV is to get the paramedics and their lifesaving equipment to the patient as quickly as possible so they can begin assessing the patient and delivering treatment. When the EMS personnel backboard a patient for removal from the beach and transport to a medical facility, our ATVs provide an easy transport from the beach to the ambulance. The patient that has been placed on the backboard is lifted and placed perpendicular on the back of the ATV. The ATV operator drives the patient off the beach while the EMTs maintain the stability of the backboard on the quad. This helps to reduce the jostling of the patient that would normally occur while carrying a patient off the beach. There are also several other items we carry daily on the quad. A BVM (bag-valve mask) makes giving breaths during CPR more effective. An array of first aid supplies allows us to respond to minor medical situations. A clipboard containing pertinent paperwork provides the ability to document important events and incidents. A scuba mask and fins proves advantageous for searches in the water. We also carry additional sunscreen and first aid supplies for the guards in our area. A rescue buoy mounted to the front of the quad is available for a water rescue. Many officers also carry additional clothing and supplies on the back of the quad for changes in weather. We all know how quickly the weather can change in Ocean City. Our ATVs also serve another very important function. During the course of a day, we deal with several lost children. Having the ability to search a large area quickly makes finding and reuniting these children with their parents much easier. Our officers on the patrol that ride the ATVs during the day have more than just a few years of experience. Their experience ranges from 13 to 34 years. Having someone on scene quickly during an emergency with that kind of experience is very helpful to providing the best care possible for our beach patrons. Without the ATVs we simply would not be able to move easily from place to place on the

beach. We all know how crowded the beach becomes on a nice day. If we only had trucks and SUVs we would not be able to respond as quickly due to the size of the vehicle. However, these enclosed vehicles are critical during dangerous weather when we must keep the beach clear. Being able to move around quickly also enables our sergeants to assist handicap patrons by giving them access to the town’s beach wheelchairs located at several street heads throughout town. When our area supervisors are not responding to a call, they assist the surf rescue technicians (SRT) in performing their role. They will see potentially dangerous situations from the back of the beach and can intervene rather than having the SRT have to get off the stand to deal with a deep hole or an ordinance infraction. This allows the SRT to concentrate on those people in the water and our area supervisors can also supervise our personnel and assure they are performing up to or exceeding our high expectations. With a season that begins early before students are out of school and extends to the end of September, the deployment and use of our mobile rescue units changes as we increase or reduce staff depending on if it is the beginning or the end of our summer season. Many of our guards are educators or in school themselves. As we have less stands on the beach the distance between them is greatly increased and the responsibility to back up a SRT making a rescue is changed from the adjoining SRTs to the areas mobile rescue unit (ATV). We also supplement the guard stands with additional mobile rescue units which consist of one SRT (rider) acting as the primary rescue swimmer while the other SRT (driver) maintains radio communication and backup during an emergency. Having ATVs available has certainly proven effective and efficient for us over many seasons and they will certainly come in handy with the big crowds this weekend due to the Air Show. We often can’t get a vehicle in and out of the crowd but the ATV can get through more efficiently. Even though the sergeants of the beach patrol are mobile, please feel free to stop them to ask a question. We are here to make your time on the beach as enjoyable as possible. Remember, “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguards in the stand.”

Free Family Arts Days at OC Center for the Arts, Saturday

(June 15, 2018) The public is invited to the Free Family Arts Days celebration on Saturday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Ocean City Center for the Arts, 94th Street, bayside. Free Family Art Days is an intergenerational art experience where children and their parents enjoy creating art together. The series of workshops involves community projects and efforts incorporating the many pieces of life — community, family, self, work, school, etc. — merging them together, much like a mosaic piece of art. The Saturday classes are free, thanks to sponsorships from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore and Walmart. The June 16 event celebrates the completion of the painted screens project spearheaded by Bishopville artist, John Iampieri. Using the traditional art of Baltimore screen painting,

Iampieri and volunteers painted the screens with local scenes and will be installing them onto the tennis court fences next to the Arts Center. Between 11 a.m. and noon, the Arts Center will offer free art activities, including the restoration of three “Beach Birds,” and complimentary light refreshments. Attendees are welcome to stroll through the galleries and artist studios of the Arts Center, all free and open to the public, and enjoy the view from the bayfront benches. The Ocean City Center for the Arts at 502 94th Street is the home of the Art League of Ocean City, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the visual arts to the community through education, exhibits, scholarship, programs and community art projects. More information is available at 410-524-9433 or www.artleagueofoceancity.org.

Continued from Page 47 In-shelter volunteer opportunities are very much needed for care of the animals. It is preferred that volunteers who are interested in being an in-shelter volunteer be able to commit to a set weekly schedule. Volunteers are needed seven days a week. Some in-house volunteer duties include cleaning kennels and cages, cleaning cat areas, walking dogs, doing dishes and laundry, and office help. Volunteers who apply for this position must be 18 years old and must be able to work independently. The shelter just opened the WCHS Thrift Store located on Sunset Avenue in West Ocean City and volunteers are needed to help process donations and work the counter at the store. The store is open Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested in volunteering at the thrift store can call 410-2139400. With kitten season in full swing and an influx of senior cats and dogs being surrendered, the shelter is in great need for foster families. The shelter provides all food, medical care, and training for foster families. Any personal pets in the foster home must be spay/neutered, current on vaccines, and FeLV negative (cats). No matter the situation or lifestyle, there is a foster animal suitable for almost everyone. Foster animals could include nursing cats with litters of kittens, abandoned kittens with no mother at all, animals who need to be socialized, senior animals who would fair much better in the comforts of a home or animals recovering from surgery or illness.

Foster parenting can be more flexible than other volunteer jobs that require people to show up for a specific shift during limited times of the day and for a committed length of time. When an animal goes into a foster home, it frees up a spot in the shelter for another animal. At the same time, foster animals are able to live in a comfortable, safe environment, which makes them much happier and more likely to be adopted. For those interested in volunteering for the shelter but don’t necessarily want to physically go to the facility, there is an opportunity to help care for shelter cats while they are being housed in the West Ocean City Petco kitty condos. This opportunity requires the volunteer to commit to a set weekly schedule one or two mornings or evenings a week. The duties include cleaning the kitty condos, scooping litter pans, feeding and giving fresh water. These duties take about 30 minutes to complete. Call Tina Walas at 717-991-3992 if interested in this volunteer opportunity. Once the shelter’s Spay and Neuter Clinic opens, volunteers will be needed to fill a few positions such as receptionist/scheduler, as well as cleaning the clinic and transporting animals. Those interested in becoming a volunteer can fill out an application at www.worcestercountyhumanesociety.org or visit the shelter during regular hours, Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Eagle’s Nest Road, off Route 611, in Berlin. For more information on events or available pets visit the shelter’s website. Follow the shelter on Facebook and Instagram.

Country Western Night at Ocean Downs, July 12

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Tickets are on sale now for the 21st annual Country Western Night at the Ocean Downs Casino on July 12. The event, which will start at 5 p.m., was created by 92-year-old Anna Foultz and hosted each year by Ocean Pines nonprofit Star Charities for the benefit of wounded soldiers. This year, money will be directed to those serving in the United States Marines. Foultz said the event was started in part to honor her late husband, Carl. “It’s in my heart. My husband was a veteran and served for four years in the CBI [China Burma India Theater during World War II], and he was lucky to come home,” she said. “But he told me some of the things they have to go through, so he started …” nonprofit work for soldiers that continues today. That includes the annual Holiday Gifts for Soldiers Overseas drive. “Every October we do that, which was his idea, and we’re still doing it,” Foultz said. “And my heart goes out to these soldiers – no matter what. I know that they’ve suffered.” Foultz said the Country Western Night event generally draws about 125 people and takes up three levels of the restaurant section of the casino, on 10218 Racetrack Road near Ocean Pines. Tickets, $26, include an all-you-caneat buffet, door prizes, and live Johnny Cash music performed by Bob Jones. For tickets, contact Foultz at 410-6417667.

with Buckingham Elementary School Counselor Deshon Purnell, who then contacted Decatur Connections Advisor Laurie Chetelat to assemble a group of enthusiastic young men to participate in the program which focused on various life skills. “I was really impressed with all of our volunteers and I really believe that they positively impacted the young people

In a small ceremony, the students were personally thanked by Purnell and given commendations.

Toby Gilbert’s sourdough bread will feature at the new Berlin Farmer’s Market, debuting Sunday on Artisan’s Green. Gilbert, the owner of Gilbert’s Provisions in Berlin, will offer regular talks during the markets on subjects including baking and fermentation.

New Berlin Farmer’s Market slated to launch this Sunday

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Sunday will mark the debut of the new Berlin Farmer’s Market, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Artisan’s Green off Main Street behind Fins Ale House and Raw Bar. Economic and Community Development Director Ivy Wells, who was responsible for organizing the revival, said Monday she was “extremely excited to bring the market back to downtown.” “There are a couple of familiar farmers from the previous market, but most are new,” she said. “What was interesting was they reached out to me – they had heard about the new farmer’s

market through word of mouth and wanted to get in on the ground floor, and they got their applications in almost immediately.” The market was once held in the parking lot near what is now Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, and more recently was based in the lot near the Berlin Fire Company. That was ended earlier this year. “It was discontinued because it was … I think that there’s a lot of different reasons why,” Wells said. “I don’t really like to talk about why things happened in the past. I’m all about moving forward with the new, positive marSee IF Page 53

‘If you’re a farmer – it’s a farmer’s market,’ Wells says Continued from Page 51 ket.” She said the market would be for “producers only.” No manufactured or prepackaged goods will be allowed. “I am not going to stray from that. If you’re a farmer – it’s a farmer’s market. It’s not a reseller’s market,” she said. The new Berlin Farmer’s Market will include live music from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., thanks to a grant Wells obtained from the Worcester County Arts Council. Each week at 11:30 a.m. Toby Gilbert of Gilbert’s provisions will “offer some enlightenment” on a variety of craft food-related topics, including fermentation, Wells said. She added there would also be children’s activities, including “Story Time with Mother Goose,” at 10 a.m. each week. “My excitement level is pretty high,” Wells said. “I haven’t been able to start many things here in downtown, but I

have experience starting farmer’s markets and I believe in it personally and for the community. “I think we have to have a farmer’s market, and I wanted it to be a place where people can catch up with their neighbors … and where you can get fresh things to eat that are actually grown here,” she added. A public vote was held to decide on the date and time, which Wells said was “more than double” in favor of Sunday morning. “I chose that date because that’s what the community wanted – this market is for the community,” she said. “I hope they come out and support it.” For more information, call 410629-1722 or visit www.facebook.com/theberlinfarmersmarket or www.BerlinMainStreet.com/farmersmarket.

Nominations sought for Beauty Spot Awards

(June 15, 2018) “Spring Showers bring May Flowers” and that is exactly what Ocean City’s Beautification Committee is looking for when considering nominations for the 2018 Beauty Spot Awards. The categories for Beauty Spot nominations including residential, condominium, retail, hotel, motel, commercial, restaurant and Boardwalk. Only nominated properties will be judged and the Beautification Committee is asking for the public’s help

in finding those special properties that are evidence of civic pride and community beauty. “A property can be nominated by anyone, including the resident or owner of a residence or business, a relative, neighbor, friend, customer or just a passerby,” said Beautification Committee Chairperson Donna Greenwood. “Once all nominations are in, the Beautification Committee will travel around town to view all the nominated properties and will judge them based on plants, flowers, trees,

shrubbery, grasses, design, layout, etc. that complement the property.” According to Greenwood, even those properties with little or no ground in which to plant can imaginatively use containers, planters, window boxes, hanging baskets or something else to improve the “curbside” appeal of their property can be nominated. Also, those who make an effort to beautify unattractive areas such as dumpsters, electric boxes, etc., can be recognized. The winners, with their awards, will be presented in the fall

during a Mayor and City Council meeting. To nominate a property, call Greenwood at 410-289-7060, mail nominations to OCBC, Department of Recreation and Parks, 200 – 125th Street, Ocean City, Maryland 21842 or email to ocbeautification@hotmail.com before the July 5 deadline. Include the property owner’s name, correct street address and a contact phone number, as well as the nominator’s name with a phone number so that the location and information can be verified.

The tiki charter boat at Fish Tales and Bahia Marina on 22nd Street, bayside, can cater to six people at a time and offers two- and three-hour cruises. Pictured, from left, are Krista Perrino, Corinne Greenlees and Bethany Pennewell.

Fish Tales, Bahia Marina now offer tiki boat charters

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (June 15, 2018) Tiki boat charters have arrived in Ocean City at Fish Tales and Bahia Marina on 22nd Street, bayside. “My wife, Donna, saw it in Key West and called me up and said, ‘We should look into this,’ and that’s how it happened,” Shawn Harman, owner of Fish Tales, said. Cruisin’ Tikis is a floating, motorized tiki bar franchise first started in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Fish Tales currently owns one tiki boat, with another undergoing construction. It takes about three weeks to construct a boat. The boat is fully Coast Guard rated and has all the safety equipment, such as running lights, underwater lights, life jackets, a licensed Coast Guard captain, and is insured. “This year it will be two, and we’ll see how it goes and go from there,” Harman said. There are two-hour and threehour cruises available. The two-hour cruise costs $75 per seat, or $450 for the full boat. The three-hour cruise is $90 per seat or $675 for the entire

boat. A boat holds 12 people, but the captain’s license only permits six at this time. “We are very excited and hope to book throughout the whole summer,” Capt. Todd Kennedy said. “[It’s] definitely a great time. You can play music, hang with friends and don’t have to worry about drinking and driving.” Kennedy is a licensed Coast Guard captain employed by Bahia Marina to run the tiki boats. Another captain will be hired once the second boat arrives.

There are four different cruises available. The Morning Mimosa cruise starts at 9 a.m. and last for two hours. The Sandbar hopping cruise begins at noon, and is three hours long. The Isle of Wight Bay Cruise starts at 4 p.m. and is two hours long. The Sunset Tiki Cruise leaves at 7 p.m. and lasts two hours. Customized cruises are available upon request as long as the schedule permits. “Everybody’s very interested,” Harman said. “We’ve taken a few See CRUISERS Page 64

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, you are probably going to retain the assistance of a real estate professional. Practitioners in the field of real estate can hold various titles, and each of the titles comes with a different set of associated educational requirements. The National Association of Realtors provides the following breakdown of the various titles for real estate professionals: • Real estate agent: Anyone who earns a real estate license can be called a real estate agent, whether that license is as a sales professional, an associate broker or a broker. State requirements vary, but in all states you must take a minimum number of classes and pass a test to earn your license. • Realtor: A real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of Realtors, which means that he or she must uphold the standards of the association and its code of ethics. • Real estate broker: A person who has taken education beyond the agent level as required by state laws and has passed a brokers license exam. Brokers can work alone or they can hire agents to work for them. • Real estate salesperson: Another name for a real estate agent. • Real estate associate broker: Someone who has taken additional education classes and earned a brokers license but chooses to work under the management of a broker. Most buyers and sellers will work with a real estate agent, an associate broker, or maybe even the broker. But the broker has additional responsibilities because he/she is the person ultimately responsible for the actions of the agents that hang their license at his/her real estate brokerage. The broker also handles the earnest money deposits on transactions and holds these funds in a dedicated escrow account. Real estate brokers (whether an associate or the designated broker) do have higher education requirements. In Maryland, the difference in educaSee BREAKDOWN Page 64

Cruisers can bring their own food and drinks. “Anything you want to bring, you are free to bring,” Harman said. “We have a hand sink, we supply ice, coolers and music.” Children are allowed on the boat. The boat goes four to six miles per hour, but passengers are not permitted to leave the boat while the motor is running. Swimming and disembarking the boat is allowed when it stops at a sandbar. “We’re really excited about it,” Harman said. “It’s a really cool thing. A lot of people point and look but the interest has been phenomenal. “We look forward to having a very successful year. We’re just hoping for good weather,” he added. “The boat’s very seaworthy.

Trimper’s trying swipe card system for credit customers

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Arcades have changes little in the public consciousness in the past couple of decades, to the point everyone is at least familiar with the process: drop a coin, play a game, collect reward and move along. Though technology has changed the contents of arcades in the past few years, with traditional games being supplanted by reward machines or games of skill, nothing much about how people approached the arcades has been altered very much in the resort. “The business has been run on quarters and dimes for 80 years,” Chris Trimper, of Trimper’s Amusements, said. “This is a big switch.” Trimper’s arcade, Marty’s Playland at 5 Worcester Street on the Boardwalk, has switched to a card-based system where the entry fee for each game is handled not with the drop of a dime or quarter, but with a swipe from a card. Previously, playing games on the Boardwalk required one thing, cash. With the new card setup, visitors, regulars and locals can use credit to fuel their game-playing experience. “If you didn’t have cash, you couldn’t play,” Trimper said. “But if you buy a

swipe card, you get more free.” The Trimper’s cards are reloadable, so customers can add dollar amounts they wish to spend onto the cards. For now, Trimper’s is also offering a little bit extra to the early adopters. “If you load $20, you get an extra $2.50. For $30 you get another $5 and for $50 you get $10,” he said. “The bonus play helps the players get familiar with the system.” Some have an easier time adjusting than others. “The kids are familiar with the technology, so they know what they’re doing. They also get more excited about it,” he said. These funds are only redeemable in the arcade, not for rides, Trimper said, and there is an exception. “Skee-ball only uses cash,” he said. What’s not going away any time soon is paper tickets, though Trimper said it is an option with the card system. “We have the option to put the tickets on there, if we want,” he said. Anyone that’s spent significant time in Ocean City has or had one somewhere — a cup, a bag or a mug filled overflowing with tickets or tokens from one of the local arcades destined to be traded in for a fabulous prize once the

magic number was reached. Sometimes those people achieved those dreams, and sometimes those cups, baggies etc. were lost to time, halfway through the journey from zero to the magic number for the biggest prize. Those tickets — about 36 million per summer — are delivered in cartons, on pallets, in nine million unit deliveries. They’re also about as durable new as they are after a couple of hours in a pocket, so except in very rare cases, each ticket can be used once before it is useless and thus worthless. But the Trimper family pays real

money for the piles and piles of tickets each child, and a large percentage of adults, on the Boardwalk hopes to trade for toys or keep until an unspecified later date — to the tune of about $10,000 for each delivery, Trimper said. While the Trimpers are trying something new, other sites on the Boardwalk are more traditional. “It’s in consideration but we’re still on quarters and tickets,” John Kowalewski, office manager for Sportland Arcade on Fifth Street and the Boardwalk, said. “I like when the kids have handfuls of tickets in their hands.”

Commentary

Do it or don’t, but definitely disclose

Maybe a meeting took place and maybe it didn’t, maybe someone produced a memorandum of understanding and then again maybe not. Maybe U.S. Wind offered hundreds of thousands of dollars of free electricity to Ocean City government or maybe it didn’t. The only fact to be gleaned from the news report that local government rejected some kind of offer from the wind farm developer is that no one outside of the parties involved knows what’s going on. Some members of the council say they didn’t know a meeting had taken place or that they didn’t attend a meeting that did occur, while other officials were unprepared to comment because they weren’t aware of any offer from U.S. Wind. Even Mayor Rick Meehan was reportedly caught off guard by the rapidly spreading report of Ocean City’s possible rejection of some kind of incentive to relax its opposition to the proposed offshore windfarm. He doesn’t know who released that information, while he also differs on what U.S. Wind pledged or didn’t pledge in its attempt to overcome local objections to a horizon dotted with wind turbines. He said the company’s offer was “vague,” but added that it wouldn’t matter how much money was involved, because Ocean City wouldn’t stand for it. A great deal of misinformation appears to be floating around, so it’s now up to the mayor and City Council to clear up the confusion. Was an offer really made? When did that happen, what did it say and who rejected it? Did the council know about it? This isn’t necessarily a criticism of local government’s rejection of a deal, but this is something that affects every resident and every property owner in the resort and they certainly should be fully informed. As for how this story got out, it’s a safe bet that it came from U.S. Wind in an attempt to put public pressure on the mayor and council. It’s also probable that the information it fed to the media might be somewhat exaggerated. The mayor and council, however, have an easy way to deal with the awkward circumstance U.S. Wind created for it. Tell the public what’s happening and we all move on from there.

No laughing at sea level rise PUBLIC EYE

Let’s talk about the rising sea level situation, which either does or does not exist, according to one’s personal and political be-

liefs. According to a new study, the Antarctic ice shelf is melting three times faster than previously believed and sea levels around the world will rise accordingly. This has led to the following conclusions, again depending on one’s political thinking. 1. Somebody’s lying and it’s all a scheme to offer pre-construction prices on oceanfront lots in West Virginia. 2. Somebody’s not lying and we might want to hold off having the screens fixed on the storm doors. 3. Maybe someone’s lying and then again maybe not, but either way, Maryland Democrats already know how to draw a new First Congressional District that encompasses parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Before we go any further, we should acknowledge that sea level rise is not a joking matter to most people, no matter what you say or how you say it. We can laugh at nuclear war — The North Koreans are too short to reach the launch button, ha-ha-ha-ha — because it doesn’t require us to do anything other than say,“Well, this wasn’t my fault,” as we rise up into the cosmos one sub-atomic particle at a time. But joke about sea level rise and climate change? Well, that’s serious territory. If, for instance, a person doesn’t believe the polar ice caps are melting because of climate change, and it’s more likely that someone left a burner on down in the earth’s mantle (where the mole people live, if my scientific assumptions are correct), then even

your best attempt at humor will not be well received. The same goes for the folks who have been stocking up on diving bells. For example, you say, “You know what happened to the Arctic explorer when the ice cap broke apart? He had to go with the floe.” To the climate change/sea level rise believer, that’s not amusing because it suggests that you don’t believe it is happening and you are an ill-informed dunce. On the other hand, the sea level rise skeptic will think it’s not funny because it suggests that you do believe it is happening and you are a gullible dunce. Either way, you are a dunce, with the question of what kind of dunce being immaterial. To put it another way, if someone said, “You’re one ugly so-and-so,” it’s not like you would feel better knowing what kind of ugly you happened to be. Nevertheless, I do have some specific questions on the sea level rise subject. 1. Can we block sea level rise in Ocean City because it will spoil our view? 2. Does this mean the day will come I can stop trying to look busy on something else while my wife cuts the grass? 4. Doesn’t this mean the Ocean City Inlet ought to be getting deeper rather than the other way around? 5. Is it possible that this would give ocean access to Berlin, which would, of course, hold a downtown celebration to recognize its new attribute, with 150-year-old Mayor Gee Williams declaring that the best thing to do is to turn the ocean into a park called “Berlin Floats?” 6. Are there really mole people living miles below the surface of the planet? The answer to the latter is “possibly,” depending on who you ask.

Letters Opposes Peerless Road chicken feeding impact

Editor, I so appreciated the information your paper, April 23 and April 30 of this year, included about the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation to be located on 10046 Peerless Road. That decision was almost completed before any of us knew what was to be put on that property. Also, what CAFO actually represents was an education in itself. It is a poultry factory. A half million chickens could be grown yearly. Basically, at this location, three 600-foot houses would be constructed on a small piece of property. That is a major concern. Possibilities of a run-off is not if, but when. That run-off would be close to the Shingle Landing Prong which is a stressed tributary to the St. Martin River. This river has, also, faced many challenges stemming from a prior factory poultry processing center

years ago. With the help of many people and organizations , including the newly formed “The Protectors of the St Martin River,” though, our St Martin River is able to contribute. The recreational activities are endless. Those on vacations and residents alike can ski , jet ski, fish, kayak, canoe, swim, crab, and more. Many people pay for crab permits and, thus, are able to help our economy. Catching fish is both fun and can create a good meal. Although many own their own boats, others rent from local businesses. We know that lots of vacationers enjoy staying in this area. Extra incomes then can be made. The sunrise, sunsets, and the wildlife create unforgettable memories. So, keeping this river healthy contributes positively for all and is a full time responsibility. It is the reason we are so concerned about that Peerless Road CAFO location. We have seen that many years ago, and even today, industrial and commercial business interests so many times out-

weighed the interests and the safety of the families living in the area. Well, we know how that worked out. A famous person once said, “Now that you know better, you will do better.” I hope so. There is another quote that is relevant to our situation. “People that don’t learn from history are bound to repeat it.” That would be sad. One more idea. It is easier to prevent a problem then fix it. This is a wonderful place to be. We have such beauty to see and fun activities to do. Families can thrive. Everyone can. That is why we need to work together to do right by this priceless environment in which we live. All of us working together can create a framework where all can know and participate in how our fine land is to be used. Finally, let us, still fight the good fight and work towards removing the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation off the Pearless Road location. In doing so, our St Martin River will be there for us now, and for future

generations as well.

Advises “13 Reasons” show can open dialogue

Editor, A year ago, the first season of “13 Reasons Why” debuted on Netflix, and teens were riveted to the story of a high school suicide and its aftermath. Parents, teachers, counselors and healthcare professionals were disturbed by the show’s cursory and often inaccurate portrayal of youth suicide, its lack of warnings and crisis hotline information in the first episodes, and many feared a rash of copycat suicides. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18 and 24, the third leading cause of death for children aged 1014. Since 1999, overall suicide rates in America have increased 30 percent. This is preventable.

Letters to the editor Indeed, there were reports of youth suicides following 13RW’s debut. Young people are often unable to control impulsive actions, but to ascribe a suicide to a show alone is probably shortsighted. There are usually other underlying causes – depression, anxiety about transitions like middle to high school, sexuality, bullying, and substance abuse. As the second season unfolds, the opportunity is presented to recognize these stresses that young people face, to open a free discussion about them, and to find resources to help kids safely through their journeys from youth to adulthood. Young people are going to watch 13RW and react to violent scenes and language. Trying to prevent them from absorbing a message that they see as addressing their concerns, in their language, perhaps better than any adult ever has, is not an effective tactic if the desire is to prevent violence of all sorts. Listening and talking is. Kids will come to adults they trust with their thoughts and fears, and 13RW can open communication that will help everyone gain a better understanding of the stress in teens’ lives, why they react as they do, and help everyone avoid the physical abuse and avert the mental anguish that too often result in suicide attempts. Ask: “Are you watching the new season of ‘13 Reasons Why?’ Use indirect questions: “What do you think of it? How does it make you feel?” Listen carefully, without judgment or

reprimand. Understand one thing: If you’re older than 30 you cannot know what it’s like to be a teen in 2018. Know: Suicide’s warning signs. Has a child given away valuable possessions, talked, written or created art about death, stopped doing things that were once fun, isolated himself or herself from family and friends? If you see these and are concerned now, be direct: “Are you thinking of killing yourself?” If the answer is yes, assure the young person that there is a way other than suicide, be open to every possibility of therapy – be it psychiatric, faith-based, or the school’s counseling service – and do not be ashamed to seek help. Don’t chastise. This is not the time for tough love. For local resources and guidance, visit www.jessespaddle.org, the website of the Jesse Klump Suicide Awareness & Prevention Program. There you will find guidance about suicide’s risk factors and warning signs, and a comprehensive guide to resources available on the lower Eastern Shore, everything from formal medical care to complementary tools like meditation and art therapy. Think of “13 Reasons Why” can be an open door to safety, contentment and hope. You never know when you will be in a position to save a life from suicide. Ronald W. Pilling, Secretary/Treasurer The Jesse Klump Memorial Fund, Inc.

The Out of Darkness walk for suicide prevention on the Ocean City Boardwalk last year was well attended. The annual event returns this year on Sept. 26.

Suicide rates up 30 percent nationally, 6-18 in Worcester

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) During a week when the Centers for Disease Control reported that “Suicide rates in the United States have risen nearly 30 percent since 1999,” the world lost a pair of luminaries to suicide, food and travel writer/TV personality Anthony Bourdain and designer Kate Spade. Awareness is suddenly up, again, but the conversation is difficult. “When prominent people commit suicide, it tends to have an effect on the general population. It brings the issue to the forefront,” said Jennifer LaMade, director of Planning, Quality and Core Services for the Worcester County Health Department. “If someone is struggling, they might think, ‘They did it – maybe I will.’ So, I think we have to be really careful how we cover suicide deaths.” Locally, the increase in the suicide rate is closer to 6-18 percent, LaMade said, adding that the latest local data is about two years old. LaMade said suicide rates in Worcester County are slightly higher than elsewhere in the state. From 2014 to 2016, the suicide rate in Worcester County was 11.5 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to the state average of 9.6. From 2007 to 2016, there

were 66 suicide in the county. “It’s not unusual to see an uptick in rural populations as opposed to urban,” LaMade said. “If you look at the CDC report, you’ll see that most of the states that had really dramatic increases are out west – states like Wyoming and Montana. “We would never know why that’s true, but some things that we speculate are that stigma (of depression and other mental disorders) is greater in rural jurisdictions and there’s often not as many resources, and that people are more isolated,” she added. There’s a catch in the county statistics, however. “When we track deaths from suicide, we only track … the deaths that occur from county residents,” LaMade said. “We often hear about suicides from people who are visiting. Occasionally, we’ll hear of someone who went to the beach and used a firearm, but these are not tracked in our [statistics].” Men accounted for 83 percent of suicides in Worcester and nine out of 10 suicides in the tri-county area from 2014 to 2016 were by Caucasians, LaMade said. About 56 percent were between the ages of 45 to 64 years old, and firearms were used in most cases. See RESOURCES Page 78

Resources available for those at risk, in crisis Continued from Page 77 Along with the CDC report and recent celebrity deaths, Kim Klump of The Jesse Klump Memorial Fund said the topic of suicide is also on people’s minds because season two of “13 Reasons Why,” a show about teenage suicide, was recently released on Netflix. The Jesse Klump Memorial Fund was established in the name of a local teen who took his own life in 2009 and is dedicated to education and outreach on the topic. “In light of that … it’s an important topic to be discussing with anybody that you care about,” Klump said, adding the TV show this year includes a warning video and a website with resources for parents and teen viewers. “They have done some improvements that way, which is a good thing, but we still don’t recommend that parents let their children watch it alone – I

don’t want to watch it alone.” Klump also warned that increased awareness could increase instances of suicide – although the reasons are unclear. “Is it actual copycat, or is it just the additional despair that more people have given up the fight?” she said. “It’s a, ‘Here, these people seem to have it all together and they lost it and gave up – how am I still holding on?’ kind of thing.” For anyone having suicidal thoughts, Klump urged people not isolate themselves but to reach out to someone — anyone — for help. “If you’re at that point, talk to anybody,” she said. “Anybody who seems sympathetic [can help]. That’s most important – to get people through that crisis – because they don’t feel like anybody cares at that point. If they can get some inkling that somebody cares, that’s sometimes enough to get them over that crisis mode. “That doesn’t guarantee they’re not going to get to crisis again, but I keep hoping the more people become aware and the more people start to see and empathize with their fellow man … hopefully people can step in more when they’re needed,” she added. Klump said anxiety levels seem to be “increasing exponentially,” which contributes to increases of depression and mental illness, and exacerbates the risk of suicide, especially in young people. She also urged people to be more conscious of their own mental health. “I feel that people do not do enough to take care of themselves,” she said. “Taking a day off from work – as a mental health day because you’re so stressed out – should be the same as taking a day off from work because you’re under the weather with a physical illness. “Do something relaxing for you that helps you refocus your mind in a positive way,” Klump continued. “There are things that we can all do to help our-

selves – and they aren’t being done.” For people at risk, there are resources like local and national hotlines, including dialing “211.” “Anyone at any time that’s having any kind of behavioral health problem can call Maryland 2-1-1 … and they’ll get a counselor online that will talk to them and give them resources,” LaMade said. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline — 1-800-273-8255 — is also an option, and a crisis response team available 24 hours a day is accessible just by calling 911, she said. “If someone calls 911 and says someone is suicidal – or even if someone calls for themselves and says they’re thinking about suicide – the police and the crisis response team will come out and they’ll assess them on the spot, and either get them to the hospital or get them an appointment for the next day,” LaMade said. She said the Worcester County Health Department also accepts walk-in appointments. “People can some any day to the health department and get an intake and be assessed,” she said. There is also the free Mental Health First Aid program, which trains community members to recognize signs and symptoms of mental health disorders and substance-use disorders, “and to actually learn how to intervene safely with people who may be considering suicide,” LaMade said. She is the instructor for the next scheduled course, Sept. 6. To register, visit www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/ take-a-course. “We want to educate the community on recognizing signs and symptoms, so that when our citizens need intervention, someone will always be available,” LaMade said. Warning signs generally include changes in behavior, like changes in sleep and eating habits, or increased isolation.

“It could be if they’ve been very depressed and they’re all the sudden elated, it might be that they’ve made a plan [to commit suicide],” LaMade said. “It’s typically changes in normal behavior, but they fall closely around isolation and isolating yourself more.” If you’re concerned someone is at risk, ask him or her directly, LaMade said. “If you don’t have the dialog, then you’ll never know,” she said. “A lot of people think that if you ask someone you’ll put the idea in their head, but that’s proven to be inaccurate. “What we train people to do in Mental Health First Aid is to go ahead say, ‘Are you thinking about killing yourself?’ And then, based on that answer, they get help for them immediately,” LaMade added. She also underscored the importance of “having open dialogs about mental health and how people are feeling.” “It’s a conversation that we sometimes shy away from, but actually it’s probably one of the most important conversations we can have when someone is showing symptoms of depression,” she said. The health department also is encouraging participation in the annual Out of the Darkness walk for suicide prevention, held in conjunction with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The event, this year, is scheduled for Sept. 26 on the Boardwalk and Caroline Street in Ocean City. Some proceeds from the walk help pay for Mental Health First Aid courses and other local suicide prevention programs, LaMade said. For more information or to register, visit www.afsp.org. The 10th Annual Jesse’s Paddle Charity Fundraiser is scheduled for July 21 in Snow Hill. For more information or to register, visit www.jessespaddle.org.

Meehan says council won’t be bullied, bribed Continued from Page 1 hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in free or subsidized electricity for the expected life of the farm — 25 years. “We didn’t get to that point, and that surprised me,” Vitale said. “They didn’t even ask the price — they were totally closed to the idea.” According to published reports, Mayor Rick Meehan said the council rejected the idea. Council President Lloyd Martin and Council members Mary Knight, Tony DeLuca, Dennis Dare, John Gehrig and Wayne Hartman said they did not attend a meeting with the company. Council member Matt James did not return a request for comment. City Manager Doug Miller said he had not seen the memorandum, and therefore couldn’t comment on it. A few council members said they were not aware of any proposal from the company. Mayor Rick Meehan released a prepared statement about the proposal. “First and foremost, the Town of Ocean City supports green, unseen energy. Despite claims of dangling hundreds of thousands of dollars of community investments, the town has not received any firm offers of a ben-

efits package nor have we requested or agreed to accept this type of information. We would instead suggest that US Wind allocate this type of expense to addressing the town’s more important request to relocate the proposed turbines 26 nautical miles off of our coast to protect what is most important to us, “our future.” “In addition, and more specifically, any offers to supply “free” electricity have been vague, not clearly defined and would potentially violate State and Federal law. To be crystal clear, while we are great supporters of clean energy, our primary concern is the best interest and future of Ocean City. We will continue to do whatever it takes to protect our beach and will not be bullied or bribed into changing our minds. Our view is not for sale,” he wrote. In his letter rejecting the deal, signed May 11, Meehan goes into more detail. “The goals the (proposed) MOU sets might seem admirable to achieve the proposals and promises US Wind Inc. has made before the public service commission,” Meehan’s letter begins. The public service commission is the state entity empowered to approve the project, which it did last year.

“As you are aware, the Mayor and City Council has only objected to the placement of the wind turbines in close proximity to Ocean City’s ocean front,” Meehan continues. “The MOU agrees that US Wind will cooperate in the endeavor to move the wind turbine sites further out so that they will not be visible off shore. This acknowledges that it can be done and our position has merit.” Meehan says any costs associated in moving the turbines would be at Ocean City’s expense and that situation is unacceptable. In consultation with City Solicitor Guy Ayres, Meehan suggests such indemnification is beyond Ocean City’s legal authority. Meehan is referring to the second responsibility outlined in the draft MOU. In it, the document states the parties would agree to explore alternate solutions to mitigate or potentially eliminate the resort’s concerns. As Ocean City really only has one concern about the project, the intent seems clear. The next responsibility outlined in the MOU is the resort would propose to federal authorities that it would explore purchasing additional leases in designated areas with the understanding US Wind will incur no time or monetary penalties and the resort

would hold the company harmless in transferring assets to the new lease areas. The leasing areas are determined by the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management. The original proposal for the wind farm was at 12 nautical miles offshore in 2009 with the support of the resort. At the close of the public comment phase of the approval process conducted in March 2016, when Meehan contends is the first time he saw any renderings of the shoreline with the turbines, is when the resort began protesting the development. As a concession, US Wind moved the turbines five additional miles offshore. Resort officials want the farm to be located 26 miles away, where it believes no impact from the turbines would be seen. However, this is outside the federally approved area for the site, and encroaches on a nearby shipping lane. “I’m not afraid to say this opposition could kill the project. The world is moving on. So many other states, New Jersey, Massachusetts, are coming after us. We always want community support,” Vitale said. “Let’s try not to let the interests of a few powerful people before those of the many, like the population of Ocean City and the state of Maryland.”

Harris cites old concerns for new amendment Congressman says agency ignored input submitted by Coast Guard, park service

By Brian Gilliland Associate Editor (June 15, 2018) Congressman Andy Harris (R-1) threw a roadblock of sorts to developing energy from renewable sources into the Fiscal year 2019 Interior and Environment appropriations bill last week. “The language I authored in the Interior Appropriations bill urges the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to work with other federal agencies, the State of Maryland, and the people of Ocean City to come to a consensus on the wind turbines’ height and distance from the shore prior to their approval of any construction and operations plan,” Harris said in a press release. His reasoning for the need for this language is clear. “When granting initial approval of offshore wind turbines along Maryland’s coast, the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management irresponsibly and consistently ignored the concerns of the National Park Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, and most importantly, the people of Ocean City,” he said. Chief Petty Officer John Miller of

the U.S. Coast Guard said it was asked to study the proposal in advance of the project. “We had concerns, and we listed them to the BOEM. Those concerns were incorporated into the acceptance of the project,” he said. No new issues have arisen between the Coast Guard and the offshore wind projects in the meantime, he confirmed. The National Park Service last commented on the proposed wind farm in 2014, according to Assateague

Continued from Page 1 The Army Corps of Engineers has responsibility for maintaining the inlet based on its funding, which is set by Congress. For the past several years, this has meant occasional dredging of problem areas within the inlet, with some added benefit from separate Assateague Bypass work. The Army Corps has a separate deal with the National Park Service to conduct operations near Assateague Island, and uses material dredged from the inlet to reinforce shorelines there as a bonus to the

SECLUDED AND SERENE NG I S TI WL

procedure. However, these solutions are not complete fixes, as the inlet continues to fill in and boats continue to run aground. The Army Corps has approved the inlet to a depth of 10 feet, with another two feet of overdraft. A recent survey by the Department of Natural Resources shows the waterway is much shallower than that in places, with depths of about two feet showing in some areas. Local commercial fishermen have long waited for high tide to attempt entering or exiting the inlet, with the

proval process continues, since certain aspects, like the impact on local wildlife or viewsheds, will be determined later in the process. She also reserves the right to comment on any National Historic Landmark that is or may be impacted by the farm, and offers the park service’s expertise to design and review studies to determine how local wildlife might be affected. Davis said this was the last communication the National Park Service had sent relating to the proposed offshore wind farm.

In 2015, the idea of a new study emerged, but the finances to pay for it didn’t appear until earlier this year. Worcester County and the state government will share the local portion of the $1.2 million cost of the first part of the plan, while Ocean City government declined to contribute to the project.

WORLD WAR II

Japan targets city of Wuhan after fall of Henan Province By Sam Ghaleb Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) This week, 80 years ago, after the fall of Henan Province, the 3,500-year-old city of Wuhan became the next objective for the Japanese. Wuhan was the capital city of the Hubei Province, and was, at the time, also serving as the Chinese capital. It was the second largest Chinese city and was located in the midstream of the Yangtze River. This made it strategically important both as an industrial center as well as a transportation hub. The Japanese understood that and concluded that should the Chinese army be defeated at Wuhan, coupled with the capture of the top ranking Chinese lead-

ers, Chinese resistance might be brought to an end. The Battle of Wuhan was considered one of the largest engagements of the Second Sino-Japanese War. It included a large concentration of forces from both sides amounting to 1.5 million men, 700 aircraft, and 150 naval ships. Japan’s Central China Expeditionary Force was composed of 16 infantry divisions and numerous brigades and regiments, organized into two Armies — Second and Eleventh — commanded by Prince Higashikuni Naruhiko and Neiji Okamura. The Central China Expeditionary Force itself was led by Shunroku Hata, who served as Japan’s war minister from August 1939 - July 1940. He became a field marshal on June 2, 1944. The Japanese naval units, commanded by Adm. Oiakwa Koshiro, were organized into two fleets and included the latest Japanese heavy and light cruisers, destroyers, gunboats, and the aircraft carrier Soryu. The Chinese forces, however, included the equivalent of 120 divisions organized into 46 Army Corps, divided between the Ninth and Fifth War Areas, commanded by Chen Cheng and Li Tsung-Jen. The Soviet Union also provided additional military and technical help to the Chinese, including a small group of Soviet Air Force volunteers. The Japanese began bombing Wuhan long before the ground operations began. The first air strike began on Feb. 28, 1938, with rather inconsequential results. On April 29, another aerial attack was scheduled, in celebration of Japanese Emperor Hirohito’s birthday, but the prepared Chinese air units achieved a small tactical victory by shooting down 21 Japanese aircraft, losing only 12 of their own. To defend Wuhan against the eventual ground invasion, the Chinese gathered more than one million men, 200 aircraft, and 30 naval vessels, with Chiang Kai-shek himself in command. On June 11, 1938, the Chinese opened the dykes of Yellow River in an attempt to win more time for the preparation of the defense of Wuhan. The flood, known now as the 1938 Yellow River Flood, forced the Japanese to delay their attack on Wuhan. However, it also caused close to 900,000 civilian deaths. This action by the Chinese leadership showed that they were willing to defend Wuhan at any cost. For the Battle of Wuhan, the Japanese assembled a force of at least 350,000 men, 500 aircraft and 120 naval ships. On June 13, the Japanese made a naval landing that captured Anqing, which signaled the start of the Battle of Wuhan. The Japanese ground operations started when Gen. Okamura’s Eleventh See WORLD Page 88

He is survived by his wife, Donna Ball, and children, Roger Lewis Ball, Linda Delmege (David) and Christine Hipp (John). There are 13 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.  Mr. Ball was a graduate of Bladensburg High school class of 1953 where he was a member of the Glee Club. He served in the United States Army as a communication technician after high school and later worked for C&P, AT&T, and performed duties with the White House Communica-

tion Agency in the Washington D.C. area, retiring after 35 years. He loved his Lord Jesus Christ and is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He Richard Ball was the greatest gift his wife ever received and she was blessed to return him to his Heavenly Father on her birthday. He enjoyed spending time with his family on vacations camping in the mountains, playing at the beach, playing horseshoes in the backyard, crabbing, fishing, being the captain of his pontoon boat, and entertaining his family and friends at holiday parties. Additionally, he was a mainstay on the Ocean Pines and Ocean City Senior league bowling teams.

WORLD WAR II Continued from Page 86 Army attacked along the southern shore of the Yangtze River, and the Japanese Namita Detachment landed in the east of the 2,600-year-old city of Jiujiang on July 23. The Chinese defenders tried to resist, but they could not stop the onslaught by the 106th Japanese Infantry Division, commanded by Gen. Atsuo Matsuura. Jiujiang was captured on July 26. Today, the city is home to more than 4 million people. The Namita Detachment moved eastward along the river, and landed northeast of Ruichang on Aug. 10, and began laying siege to the city. The defending Third Chinese Army Group, commanded by Sun Tongxuan, was reinforced by the Thirty-Second Army Group, commanded by Kuan Lincheng. However, when the Japanese 9th Infantry Division, commanded by Ryōsuke Yoshizumi, entered the action, on

Ocean City Today Aug. 22, the Chinese defenders were overwhelmed and Ruichang was captured two days later. In the meantime, Gen. Yoshizumi’s 9th Division and the Namita Detachment continued to move eastward along the river, while the 27th Infantry Division, commanded by Masaharu Homma (who would later be known, by Americans, as the “Beast of Bataan”), invaded Ruoxi simultaneously. The Chinese Thirtieth and Eighteenth Armies resisted along the Ruichang-Wuning Road and the surrounding area. The situation was in stalemate for months. On Oct. 5, after Gen. Homma’s 27th Division captured Ruoxi, it turned northeast and captured Xintanpu, in Hubei Province, on the 18th and began moving toward Dazhi. In the meantime, the Japanese Army and its supporting river fleet, which had advanced eastward along the Yangtze River, encountered resistance from the

defending Chinese Thirty-First Army Group, commanded by Tang Enbo (“The Iron Man”) and Gen. Kuan’s Thirty-Second Army Group, in the west of Ruichang. To strengthen their defenses, the Chinese Second Army Group, commanded by Sun Lianzhong, organized four corps, which, along with the Thirtieth Army Group, commanded by Wang Lingji, were sent to the Yangxin region. The battle continued until Oct. 22, when Chinese lost all of Yangxin, Dazhi and Hubei City. Gen. Yoshizumi’s 9th Infantry Division and the Namita Detachment were now approaching Wuchang, the oldest district of Wuhan. Near the end of September, five regiments of Gen. Matsuura’s106th Division advanced into the Wanjialing region, west of Dean. Chinese I Corps commander Xue Yue ordered the Fourth, Sixty-Sixth and the Seventy-

JUNE 15, 2018 Seventh Armies to outflank the Japanese. Gen. Homma’s 27th Division attempted to reinforce the position, but was repulsed by the Chinese Thirty-Second Army west of Wanjialing. On Oct. 7, 1938, the Chinese Army launched its final attack on the encircled Japanese troops. A fierce battle continued for three days, and all Japanese counter-attacks were repulsed by the Chinese. Because of their isolation, and the lack of supplies, the four Japanese regiments were annihilated by the 10th. This was a major victory for the Chinese and was celebrated as the Victory of Wanjialing. By now, the Japanese Army had completed the encirclement of Wuhan. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, who personally led the garrison in Wuhan, had a complete change of mind. Instead of fighting a second major battle in Wuhan, as he originally planned (the first being Shanghai in 1937), he decided to withdraw to the west and the south in order to preserve his strength. Thus, the Chinese Army was forced to abandon the city. After four months of violent battles, the Chinese air and naval forces were, essentially, destroyed, and the Japanese occupied Wuhan on Oct. 27. However, most of the Chinese troops survived, and the Japanese army was considerably weakened. Japan’s pre-war hopes for a final showdown in Wuhan to annihilate the main force of the Chinese Army and force it to yield were unsuccessful. With numerous battles still being fought in central China, the China theater now entered the stage of stalemate with no major Japanese offensives until Operation Ichi-Go in 1944. This operation targeted the U.S. B-29 bases that were being constructed in China for air raids against the Japanese Home Islands. Although the Japanese earned a major victory by capturing this city, it was accomplished at a cost of 140,000 casualties. These were heavy losses that Japan could not afford. In most of the major battles of this conflict, the Japanese losses were roughly one third of the Chinese losses. With such heavy attrition rate, Japan could not have won that war. Although suffering 400,000 casualties, and 100 Soviet volunteers, the Chinese were able to grind the Japanese momentum to a stalemate from this point on, and, most importantly, the Chinese were able to block the Japanese plan to end the Second Sino-Japanese War in Wuhan. The ferocity of the struggle and the Japanese desire to annihilate their enemy was demonstrated by the fact that during the Battle of Wuhan, the Japanese resorted to the use of chemical warfare. It is now confirmed that the Emperor did send orders to the Japanese Army Headquarters, responsible for the operations against Wuhan, to use poison gas on 375 separate occasions, from August to October 1938.

Bennett catches, releases first OC white marlin of ‘18

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (June 15, 2018) While heading offshore to go tuna fishing Wednesday morning, Ron Bennett, Capt. Steve Moore and some of the others aboard the Stalker fantasized about landing the first white marlin of the season. “We talked about it on the ride out. That, boy it would be nice to get the first white,” Bennett said. “Every year you try for it – to get the first white of the season.” Leaving the Ocean City Fishing Center in West Ocean City around 5 a.m., the group ran into some thunderstorms on their way to the Poor Man’s Canyon. Fishing about 52 miles offshore, not long after lines went in the water, the crew got a bluefin tuna bite. They reeled in three bluefin before catching a yellowfin tuna. “It was a good way to start the day,” Moore said. It was sunny, then a bit foggy off and on, but the water was calm, Moore said. “It was a beautiful day on the water,” he said. Around 8:10 a.m., Moore said one of the rods went off and when he looked behind the boat, he saw a white marlin jump out of the water. Bennett, an experienced marlin fisherman, took the rod and went to work. See BENNETT Page 90

Bennett: To get this opportunity is unreal Continued from Page 89 “I said, ‘This one’s mine.’ Marlin fishing, that’s what I love to do,” Bennett said. Moore backed down on the fish so Bennett would have an easy fight and they could get a “clean release.” He got the fish to the boat, they took some photos and released it around 8:30 a.m. Moore said he estimated it to weigh about 45-50 pounds. “To get this opportunity is unreal,” Bennett said. “Everyone was hugging, clapping and high-fiving.” Moore was 98 percent sure it was the first white marlin catch and release of the season out of Ocean City, but there were also many boats out fishing on Wednesday, he said. Moore called Ocean City Marlin Club President Franky Pettolina from his satellite phone to see if there were any other white marlin reported.

Pettolina hadn’t heard of any. “A lot of people dream of catching it. They go out hoping to catch it,” Moore, who lives in Selbyville, Delaware, said. “I’ve gone out hoping for the chance at it. I’m 39 and I’ve been fishing since I was a kid. It finally happened. I’m stoked. Excited.” They continued fishing and picked up a few more tuna. They stopped around noon with four bluefin – the largest 109 pounds – and three yellowfin, and headed back to the fishing center. After filling out some paperwork, it was official. Because he caught and released Ocean City’s first white marlin of the season, he will received a $5,000 prize from the town. The Ocean City Marlin Club also awards $5,000 to its member that catches and releases the first white marlin of the season. On top of that, he will take home the

$6,000 prize from Fishermen United of Ocean City (Bank of Ocean City, Bahia Marina, Coastal Fisherman, Sunset Marina, Ocean City Fishing Center and Atlantic Tackle) as well as receive free entry into the Big Fish Classic tournament based out of Talbot Street pier in downtown Ocean City, July 27-29. So not only did Bennett land the first white of the season, he will pocket $16,000 as an added bonus, which he plans to split with Moore and Curtis Macomber, owner of the 53-foot Stalker. Also on the boat was Bennett’s 13year-old daughter, Taylor, along with Ritchie and Andrew Rinehimer, Jeff Hepbron and Paul Smack. Bennett and Moore have fished together in numerous Ocean City tourna-

ments, as well as in Costa Rica, and they plan to enter a number of competitions this summer. “We work well together,” Bennett said. They came in the third place during the 2017 Ocean City Tuna Tournament in the Stringer Division with a combined catch weight of 306 pounds. Bennett, 45, who was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, and now resides in Landenberg, Pennsylvania, said over his 30 years fishing in Ocean City he has caught and released an estimated 500 marlin. He’s kept only one. During the winter he travels to Costa Rica to fish for marlin and sailfish. He said he tries to compete in just about all of the tournaments out of Ocean City during the summer.

Over 50 Different Tables In Stock! Slaughterhouse swept the bluefish division with 12.8,- 11.4- and 9.2-pound catches during the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 38th annual Small Boat Tournament last year. The team was presented $120.

OC Marlin Club’s Small Boat Tournament this weekend

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (June 15, 2018) The Ocean City Marlin Club presents its 39th annual Small Boat Tournament this weekend as fishing for several species, especially tuna, is good right now. “It’s an exciting tuna bite right now,” said Boz Jefferson, co-chair of the tournament with Colin Campbell and Bill Regan. “And, people are catching fish inshore. Fishing in general is pretty good.” The competition is for “small boats,” open to vessels 34 feet long (as stated on the manufacturer’s specifications) and smaller. Registration is today, Friday, June 15, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Marlin Club on Golf Course Road in West Ocean City. A captains’ meeting will follow at 8 p.m. The tournament is open to Marlin Club

members and nonmembers. Many people fish in the tournament annually, Jefferson said. “It’s a fun tournament,” he said. “If the weather is good, we’ll have some good competition.” Participants will fish either Saturday or Sunday, June 16-17. Anglers can participate in the inshore or offshore divisions. They also have the option to compete in both. The Small Boat competition is for all ages, and young anglers are encouraged participate. “[Participants] like that they have the option to fish both days, inshore one day and offshore the other day,” Jefferson said. The inshore division includes categories for flounder, sea bass, bluefish and rockfish. Offshore division categories include tuna, dolphin and billfish release. See WEIGH-INS Page 92

SURF REPORT

Despite storm, Surf Fest Weekend successful

By Dave Dalkiewicz Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) Despite last Saturday’s torrential rain and Sunday’s considerable fog and overcast sky the Surf Fest Weekend was deemed a success. Seven teams, each of five competitors, battled on Saturday for various prizes and trophies. Unfortunately, the event came to an abrupt halt when a lightning threat cleared the beach. It’s no place to be in those kind of conditions. And then the rain came,

like a thousand fire hoses. Cover was taken with the idea that the event could continue when the rain stopped. That didn’t happen. With the length and intensity of the rainfall, flooding conditions were evident all over town as well as the surrounding area. Consequently, a winner had to be declared with the already com-

pleted part of the Team Challenge. The winner was Malibu’s, hotly contested by a team from Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Sunday’s Longboard Pro was a treat for spectators. Despite the less-thanstellar weather and bumpy, windblown waves, the competitors put on quite a show. Incentive was high with a $5,000 prize purse. The winner, Tony Silgvani, was awarded $1,500. Prize money was awarded to eighth place.

Competitors showed up from New Jersey to Florida. As an annual event, this contest commands more and more prestige as time goes on. It’s one of the few on the East Coast that offer prize money and a fair amount at that. Started in 2014, it has a consistent track record with a bright future. Probably the most significant part of the weekend was Friday night’s party and the Legend’s induction See SURFING Page 92

Weigh-ins to take place at Sunset Marina Continued from Page 90 The shark division was dropped this year because of emergency regulations implemented by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration to address overfishing of Atlantic Shortfin Mako Sharks. The recreational minimum size limit was increased from 54 to 83 inches (fork length). The Dale Brown Award is a $500 bonus for the angler who lands the heaviest flounder. The award is named in memory of Brown, who was a Marlin Club member and avid fisherman. Weigh-ins will take place Saturday and Sunday from 3-6:30 p.m. at Sunset Marina in West Ocean City. An awards banquet is scheduled for Sunday from 6:30-9 p.m. at the OCMC clubhouse. The entry fee is $250 per boat to fish offshore or inshore. Five banquet tickets

are included in the fee. To fish inshore one day and offshore the other, the cost is $500 and includes 10 banquet tickets. Added entry-level calcuttas are available for each division and cost $100, $200 and $300. There is also a winner takes all $200 offshore billfish release added-entry level. For more information, call the Marlin Club at 410-213-1613 or visit www.ocmarlinclub.com. Fifteen of the 25 teams that participated in the 38th annual Small Boat Tournament last year came to the Sunset Marina scale with fish to weigh. Eight boats remained inshore to fish, while 17 went offshore. All but one of the crews fished on the first day. A total of $6,890 was distributed among the tournament winners. In four of the divisions, the same team took first through third place.

SURF REPORT

Surfing ‘legends’ inducted during weekend kickoff Continued from Page 91 started by Shelly Dawson and Kip Martin in 2001. Numbering about 100 inductees at this point in time, it too has become an annual event. This year’s additions were Rob Tinus, Joe Hill, Hobie Kernan, John Sheldon and Jay Evilsizor, who recently passed away. It’s a way to acknowledge those who have had significant impact in this area and can lend opportunity for continued influence for and about surfing. The Ocean City Surf Club is a nonprofit organization that promotes the sport of surfing and tries to give back to the community in the form of scholarships, programs and causes. Many thanks to all of those who helped out, especially Chris Tilghman, Brad Hoffman, Tommy Vach, Skill Johnson, Barn 34, Castle in the Sand, all the judges, tabulators, and assistants under the tent. We’ll all look forward to next year’s event and continued aloha and support of the Ocean City Surf Club. — Dave Dalkiewicz is the owner of Ocean Atlantic Surf Shop in Ocean City.

OC Tennis Center offers variety of activities

By Kara Hallissey Contributing Writer (June 15, 2018) The Ocean City Tennis Center opened for the season on May 15, offering a number of programs and tournaments for players of all ages and skill levels on 61st Street. “We are very service-oriented and have a great staff that have all been here at least a few years,” Center Director Rod Dulany said. “I am really big on customer service and there is something for everyone here.” There are at least eight adult programs going on this summer, including men’s tennis, which takes place five days a week and can have up to 24 people playing on multiple courts, Dulany said. “These men play year-round and don’t care if it’s 2 degrees outside,” he said. “They are total die-hards.” Following the men’s program, a two-hour women’s doubles league will take place four days a week with up to 36 women competing each day. “When I started here 15 years ago, there were 8-12 women and now we are up to 36 a day,” Dulany said. “Almost everything we have, you have to sign up a head of time for except for the men’s morning league. We have over 250 women in our database that will play this summer.” New programs this year include a

men’s evening open league on Tuesdays for singles and doubles players. Up to 24 men are expected to play in the competition. Also new is a women’s doubles clinic scheduled on July 9 and Aug. 6. “We will be teaching doubles for two hours each day,” Dulany said. The adult holiday mixers bring female and male tennis players together, set for July 1 and Sept. 2 this year. “We have anywhere from 20 to 36 men and women playing,” Dulany said. “We have a cookout afterwards with hamburgers and hot dogs. Everyone brings a dish.” There are at least six junior programs to choose from at the Ocean City Tennis Center this year. “We have started our spring clinics and we have about 25 kids in them, which is good for early spring,” Dulany said. “We have five weeks of camps for different age groups throughout the summer.” Starting June 17, there will be tennis bashes for those 15 and under every Sunday, which are timed singles and doubles matches. “They play to music and there will be different sports going on outside the court, such as cornhole,” Dulany said. “It is a festival for kids.” In its fourth year, the high school instruction program is designed to help

teenagers take their games to the next level. To participate, players must have played tennis at their high school. “It is one of our biggest programs,” Dulany said. “Kids who play high school tennis had nothing to do when the year was over. It keeps them playing throughout the summer.” There are also tournaments within the high school tennis series. The remainder will take place July 8 and Aug. 5. “They will compete in three matches each day and it is broken up by ability levels,” Dulany said. “They get points for each match and the top four in boys and girls divisions come back on Aug. 26 to compete in the finals.” Dulany has seen teenagers from Delaware, Maryland and Virginia high schools participate in the programs. “They get to play people they don’t get to play all the time,” Dulany said. “We have cheap rates for tournaments and want the kids to have somewhere to go.” During the Ocean City Century Tournament, teams must have a combined age of more than 100 years. It will take place Aug. 4 and includes women’s, men’s or mixed doubles teams. “In its third year, the Ocean City Century Tournament is fun,” Dulany said. “We had 20 teams last year and

members enjoy the cook out afterwards.” Co-ed singles, doubles and mixed doubles intermediate and club college players will compete Sept. 29-30 on 16 teams from colleges all over the East Coast, including Salisbury, Princeton, James Madison, and William and Mary. “This is the best event held here,” Dulany said. “It brings in 200 college kids and these kids are phenomenal.” Last year, 100 tons of material was added to three Har-Tru tennis courts, which are made from crushed rock, and the plan is to put new court material on the six premier hard courts in 2018. In addition, court colors are slated to be changed to royal blue by next month, which will match the U.S. Open courts. “It will be really neat when its finished,” Dulany said. Anyone can play at the center yearround, although the office hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday until Oct. 1.
