Council looks at merger of election dates in November ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

PARADE HONORS RESCUE PERSONNEL

BAYSIDE GAZETTE/NATHAN BRUNET

Firefighters, rescue volunteers and emergency service personnel have converged on the resort this week for the 51st consecutive year, as part of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association and Ladies Auxiliary annual convention, conference and Wednesday parade, above. The weeklong event, which concludes today, drew thousands of rescue personnel and their families and friends. The firemen’s convention, as it is generally known, has taken place in the resort for 60 years. In the early years, when the event was much smaller, the venue location rotated throughout the state. The 2012 convention and conference is the 120th installment.

MURDER SUSPECT SOUGHT Police solicit information about Millsboro mother, 35, found off Whaleyville road NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit continues to pursue witnesses in the murder case of Nicole Bennett, 35, of Millsboro, Del., whose body was found in the Whaleyville area last Friday. A man who was walking along a rural road in the Whaleyville area about a mile from the Delaware line at about 9 a.m., Friday, June 15, called po-

lice after he saw Bennett’s body in an embankment that slopes down from the road. Bennett was reported missing by her husband just one hour earlier. He said she did not return home from work at the Bay Shore Community Church the night before. Another family member told police they had last heard from her on the night of June 14. Her body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an au-

topsy to determine the cause of death. A memorial service was held Wednesday at her church, Bay Shore Community Church in Gumboro, Del. A Mass of Christian burial was to be held at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church. Bennett, originally from Nebraska, lived in Millsboro with her husband, Kevin Edward Bennett, and three young daughters. She worked as a director of the childcare center of Bay Shore Babies and was a member of the Bay Shore Community Church, a non-denominational church in Gumboro, Del. See INFORMATION on Page 29

(June 22, 2012) A move that could change the landscape of Ocean City’s political contests and potential ballot initiative this fall appears to be possible, as the City Council on Monday voted to discuss consolidating the town’s local elections with the national election date. Ocean City’s municipal contests are held on the third Tuesday in October, while county, state, and national ballots all fall on the traditional first Tuesday in November. On Monday, however, Councilman Doug Cymek cited public demand as he reintroduced the election date consolidation idea originally suggested by Councilman Joe Hall. He said his personal conviction toward the election date shift was less firm. “In the last two weeks, I’ve had a number of phone calls regarding this topic, a lot of people feeling that we should try to get the max number of voters out this time,” Cymek said. “I was opposed to it initially, but I would vote for it now if it was so moved.” Cymek declined to make a motion, but seconded one made by Councilwoman Mary Knight. “I know having a different day has always made it a special day for Ocean City, but I have been getting a lot of comments,” Knight said. “I have also voted against it, but I See MOVE on Page 21

State aid not available now, producers turn to council for significant contribution ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) If the upcoming feature film, “Ping Pong Summer,” is to be filmed entirely in Ocean City, it will require not only the town’s logistical cooperation, but also a significant financial contribution from the municipality, according to an email sent by the film’s lead producer to city officials. In a message to Councilman Joe Hall, producer George Rush stated that he was contacting Hall – and would soon be contacting the mayor and other council members – to introduce the idea of filming in Ocean City for six weeks beginning in mid-September. Rush mentioned four Hollywood notables who have committed to the movie thus far – Susan Sarandon, James Nesbitt, Amy Sedaris and Judah Friedlander. As previously reported by several entertainment websites, the film will star Sarandon in a coming-of-age tale about a teenage boy obsessed with table tennis and early hip-hop music, and his memorable family vacation to Ocean City in the summer of 1985. In his message, Rush pitched the intimate relationship between the film and

its setting. “The director/writer, Michael Tully, is from Maryland and his family took annual summer vacations to Ocean City,” Rush said. “Unlike many films, the setting of Ping Pong Summer is as much a character as any of the cast. I came out to scout last summer and instantly appreciated what a family-friendly beach town Ocean City is, and saw that the nostalgia for summer vacations of one’s youth was still alive and kicking in Ocean City.” “You would not believe (or perhaps you would) how many people around the country with some connection to the mid-Atlantic light up when I mention Ocean City. I’ve heard enough Ocean City first kiss/first romance stories to make a hundred films. And Ping Pong Summer if nothing else is an homage to those Ocean City summer memories.” However, according to Rush, the film’s investors were relying heavily on a rebate through the Maryland Film Office to help defray costs. Through such a state rebate, Rush would’ve been refunded 25 percent of all monies spent in the state of Maryland. He estimated this to be worth around $300,000, given that the bulk of the movie’s $1.5 million budget would be spent while shooting on-location. However, the film’s rebate application did not come up during the recent special session in Annapolis, due to the intensive political infighting that surrounded this year’s state budget.

“I am hoping that the city could assist to make up for the state money we were somewhat relying on,” Rush went on to state. “We are a low budget film, but the whole production will be shot in Ocean City, and thus there will be a positive economic impact on the town as low season begins.” Although a rubric for such benefits would be difficult to ascertain, the autumn 1998 filming of Julia Roberts’ “Runaway Bride” in nearby Berlin was said to have brought the town up to $1 million over three weeks of shooting, according to a 2000 Baltimore Sun article, as well as unquantifiable future benefits of publicity and film-related tourism boosts. Rush also noted that the film has been courted by other beach areas that offer tax credit incentives, such as Virginia and New Jersey, as well as offers to shoot interior scenes in studios elsewhere. “But we have spurned those offers as we (and Mike Tully in particular) are committed to shooting the whole film in Ocean City and making it as authentic as possible,” Rush added. The proposition also has a time limit. “I should also stress that if we have not raised the minimum budget by midAugust, we will have to push the project back and it is likely we will then lose our great cast. Without the cast, we will be back at square one,” Rush said. Although the film is being independ-

ently financed and is unattached to any studio or distributor, Rush said he was confident that the cast and script “virtually assured a robust international distribution.” As such, Rush said he would be open to either an outright grant from the city, or an equity investment in the film’s future. In a response to city officials, Hall suggested that the city’s marketing agency, MGH, look into the potential returns. “I’m not so sure we would get the bang for our dollars using tax dollars to support this,” Hall said. “I like the idea of Ocean City in featured movies. It’s just above my pay grade to know if it is a smart investment of advertising dollars.”

OCDC appoints new executives, looks forward to expansions ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The Ocean City Development Corporation has elected its new Executive Committee for the June 2012 through May 2013 term, with the head of one of the Boardwalk’s oldest eateries becoming OCDC president just as the organization has expanded its reach to the boards and obtained a potentially lucrative state designation. Bob Givarz, owner of the Alaska Stand cafÊ on the Boardwalk at Ninth Street, will serve as OCDC president. Additionally, Jay Knerr of The Kite Loft will serve as vice president, Igor Conev of Mann Properties will serve as secretary, and Charlie Barrett of Inn on the Ocean Bed and Breakfast will serve as treasurer. Former OCDC President Todd Ferrante of Park Place Jewelers will assume the ex-officio position of immediate past president. According to OCDC Executive Director Glenn Irwin, officers are elected annually by a 15-member board of directors. Executives traditionally serve for a twoyear span, although they are re-approved each year. OCDC was founded in 2000 at the behest of the mayor and City Council. A nonprofit group, it is tasked with facilitating the development and revitalization of Ocean City’s downtown, something it has done by developing design standards for downtown infrastructure and by offering subsidies to private property owners to

Bob Givarz, owner of the Alaska Stand cafĂŠ on the Boardwalk at Ninth Street, has been named president of the Ocean City Development Corporation for the June 2012 through May 2013 term.

renovate their buildings’ façades and upgrade their energy efficiency. OCDC also sponsors public art projects and other capital improvements. Furthermore, OCDC took the major step of absorbing Ocean City’s Boardwalk Development Association earlier this year, essentially making that organization a subcommittee of OCDC. “Now that the Boardwalk is part of our jurisdiction, there’s been discussion of creating design standards for the Boardwalk as well, which will be a lot different, since the character is very different on the Boardwalk than it is off. Especially the signage,â€? Irwin said.

Few know the lay of the Boardwalk better than Givarz. The Alaska Stand is a third generation business. “Next year with be our 80th anniversary. My grandfather started it when he immigrated here,� Givarz said. “I see a lot of foreign students who come work here, some of whom I know love it and want to stay, and I think to myself that it’s kind of come full circle since 1933.� The Boardwalk is definitely a different animal than the rest of downtown, Givarz said. And it has a lot of variation in itself. “From First Street south, it certainly has more of an amusement park feel, and then once you go further north it becomes

more and more residential,â€? he said. Irwin and Givarz both said they were looking forward to reaping the benefits of Ocean City’s Main Street Maryland designation, which it received in April through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development after lobbying by OCDC. The program provides funding and other opportunities for aesthetic improvements as well as business diversification. “We already are incorporating a lot of those Main Street emphases, marketing of the downtown, improving the façade. With a little assistance, we find people are willing to put a lot more into their projects than just the minimum to get the grant,â€? Givarz said. He also noted that Main Street Maryland funding could help to integrate the Boardwalk with the rest of downtown’s development. “A lot the Main Street program is business recruitment and retention,â€? Givarz said. “We do want to try and get more new businesses off the Boardwalk, onto these side streets and corridors that are pedestrian-friendly.â€? State monies may also be available for one of OCDC’s long-term ambitions – its “model blockâ€? project, which Irwin said he hopes will serve as an example and starting point for long-term redevelopment. “We’d like to get all the properties on one block together so that it can be developed in tandem into a multi-use facility of some kind,â€? Givarz said.

Ocean City Bike Patrol officers were pedaling near First Street and Philadelphia Avenue on June 19 when they saw three men and one boy committing an apparent robbery. The police saw the foursome surround their male victim, barring him from getting away. The victim had been walking on the sidewalk. One of the four was on each side, one was in front and one stood behind the victim. One of the men grabbed the victim’s right arm and wrist and the boy grabbed his left arm and wrist. The victim lunged to get away, but they chased after him and one of the men removed the victim’s cell phone from his pocket. The men then saw the police and ran, but were caught. The victim said the men told him they wanted his money. He went to get his wallet to give to them and one of them reached inside and took $3. Police retrieved the cell phone and $2. The suspects, who were all from Harrisburg, Pa., were identified as Vaughn Labray Samuel Jones, 19; Averee Loren Robinson, 18, and Larry Donnell Rascoe, 18. They and the juvenile were charged with robbery, second-degree assault, two counts of theft and disorderly conduct. The juvenile was released to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Services.

Tram injury A woman was injured June 14 when she

accidentally walked into the second car of the Boardwalk tram as it was moving near 10th Street. She became caught between two cars. Before the accident, she was seen talking on her cell phone and walking backwards. She was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center to be treated for a possible arm injury.

Burglary arrest Ocean City police arrested a 19-year-old resort man June 15 in connection with a residential burglary in the north end of the county. When police served a search and seizure warrant June 7, they found several items that were reported stolen in a burglary May 11. Police charged Alexander George Ellis with first-degree burglary, felony theft and malicious destruction of property.

Pedestrian injured An 18-year-old man from Finksburg was seriously injured Friday, June 15, as he tried to cross Coastal Highway at 59th Street. According to Ocean City police, he and his friends were walking in the crosswalk from west to east at about 5:30 p.m. While they were in the crosswalk, the pedestrian signals changed from “Walk” to “Don’t Walk.” His friends turned around to walk back to the center median, but the 18-year-old tried to continue crossing the highway. He was struck by a vehicle traveling north. He was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to Peninsula Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle was not charged.

Concealed weapon A 19-year-old Damascus man was charged June 18 with having a concealed dangerous weapon after he handed a police officer a steak knife. Hepner approached a patrol car on 1136th Street at about 1:45 a.m. because he thought the officer wanted to talk to him, but the police were just on routine patrol. Because Hepner had been sitting on a bench at the beach access area, the officer told him that people are not supposed to be on the beach after midnight. Then the officer asked Hepner if he had any drugs, guns or knives. Hepner said he had a knife and pulled a kitchen steak knife out of his right pants pocket and handed it over. He said he had the knife for protection because he was attacked a few nights earlier. He was then arrested.

Handgun in vehicle Brandon Miller, 23, of Manheim, Pa., was free to leave on June 14 after an Ocean City policeman advised him to wear a seatbelt while driving. But when the policeman asked him if he could search the vehicle, Miller consented. The policeman then found a loaded 45-caliber handgun in the vehicles trunk. He also found a magazine loaded with eight rounds of ammunition. Miller was charged with having a handgun in his vehicle. He said it belonged to his roommate.

Counterfeit money a concern once again in Ocean City shops NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The recent reports of counterfeit bills being presented to local businesses has led Ocean City Councilwoman Margaret Pillas to wish for a return of “Counteract against Counterfeit,” a program whereby merchants would notify each other if they received a counterfeit bill or even a suspected counterfeit bill. “Maybe they need to start it up again,” Pillas said Tuesday. When Pillas and her husband, Perry, owned their children’s clothing store on the Boardwalk, counterfeit bills were a concern so she decided to take action. She told business owners if they saw a suspect bill to call 10 other business people. Each person would be told to notify 10 additional people. The calls multiplied and information spread quickly. “Everybody [who received counterfeit or suspected counterfeit money] was told the first call they should make was to the police and then immediately make call to merchants, so that by alerting neighboring businesses, you stop it right there,” Pillas said Tuesday. Pillas said she probably had a couple of suspected counterfeit bills each summer, until they closed the business two summers ago. “One time somebody got a five [dollar

Renovations

bill],” she said. Most counterfeit bills are of higher denominations. Pillas urges people to be vigilant and on the lookout for counterfeit Councilwoman bills. The international Margaret Pillas workers probably find it more difficult to spot fake money because the bills used in their countries are made from paper, while United States bills contain fibers. The international students can feel a bill that feels like paper and think it feels like their money and do not recognize it as fake, Pillas said. Although “Counteract against Counterfeit” has not been in effect, the Ocean City Police Department is warning residents, business owners and employees to be on the lookout for counterfeit money being circulated. Since May 1, the police department has received approximately 12 reports of counterfeit bills being presented as payments to local businesses. People should look closely at any bills they receive and should be aware of security features. The three main security features on bills are shifting inks on number, security threads, which display the denomination of the currency embedded in

Open container law returns to its previous status Council votes to make violations a misdemeanor instead of civil infraction ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) First it was a criminal misdemeanor and then it was a civil infraction and now possessing an open container of alcohol on public property in Ocean City is a criminal misdemeanor again. The City Council unanimously passed an emergency ordinance Monday night to return the city’s open container law to its former status as an arrestable criminal misdemeanor. The move will give police considerably more discretionary power to arrest those identified as metaphorical fire-starters. “The reasoning is that it will give officers a tool to take care of a problem when it’s small,” said Ocean City Police Department Chief Bernadette DiPino, who had gone before council previously to request the change be considered. “It gives police the discretion to still just write a citation to anyone who has an open container, but it also puts the ability to arrest in their toolbox if they think it’s warranted.” Like most jurisdictions in the United States, Ocean City does not allow a person to possess an open container of alcohol in a public space not otherwise approved for such activity. Some years ago, open con-

tainer violations were classified as criminal misdemeanors, meaning that violators would need to be arrested and formally charged through Maryland District Court. According to City Solicitor Guy Ayers, such a charge usually resulted in a community service sentence and typically did not require the offender to appear before a judge. However, after a period in which open container arrests were thought to be less of a problem for the otherwise busy OCPD, it was decided to simplify the process by making such violations civil infractions that did not require criminal charges and would result in a citation and fine, similar to a parking ticket. This week’s ordinance would reinstate the criminal charge option. In explaining that the decision to arrest would be a strategic choice for officers, DiPino sought to allay public fears that police would be targeting unaware tourists with open beers. “There are very few jurisdictions that allow people to drink in public, so it’s not a normative behavior,” DiPino said. “Our officers have the discretion whether or not to actually arrest, and they’re trained as to when it is and isn’t needed. It’s not for unsuspecting people. We just find certain kinds of people who are drinking in public commit other crimes later.” OCPD Public Information Officer Mike Levy had noted previously that the OCPD’s open container enforcement, while applicable to everyone, has been primarily geared towards rowdy under-

age drinkers, with most of the department’s aggressive action going towards under-21 problem causers. “There are people who come to Ocean City and are of age but just don’t know that it’s not okay. But you’re going to handle that much differently than, say, underage kids hiding a case of beer under the sand on the beach. It’s all situational,” Levy said. “In a manner of speaking, they [underage drinkers] are the group that predominantly gets them [the citations], but we target enforcements, so if there’s a party of adults who know very well they shouldn’t be drinking in the streets, they’ll get cited as well.” DiPino reiterated this Monday. “It’s better to take a person who is causing issues out of the public right away than leave them where they were with a citation,” she said. While universally supportive, elected officials warned DiPino that they expected police to be extremely tactful under the measure. “One of the reasons it took so long to change this has been the concern about discretion, and I do have reservations about that,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “I don’t agree with the concept that, if somebody’s drinking now, they might be a problem later. I hope that’s not the parameter used.” “One of the things the chief said when she made this request was that she would tighten up the parameters the officers use See OPEN on Page 9

Three men arrested following near fight on Baltimore Ave. NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The presence of police averted a possible knife fight last week and the two men involved were arrested. But as an officer left his bike in the street to chase one of the wouldbe combatants, another man walked off with his bike. Police said two large groups of young men were walking on Baltimore Avenue near Ninth Street at about 2 a.m. on June 12. One group was walking on the east sidewalk and the other group was walking in the middle of the avenue. A policeman walking past them overheard 19-year-old Daymontay Lynet Johnson of Baltimore yell a threat at Kian-Wayne Magruder, 18, of Waldorf. Magruder responded with curses and threats of his own, police said. At this point, approximately 50 people gathered around the two men trying to stop the incident from escalating. Meanwhile, realizing a fight was about to happen and because of the large group of people, the policeman radioed for assistance. Police said that when Magruder and Johnson got to Ninth Street, both took fighting stances as their friends encircled them. Johnson’s right hand was down by his hip, but the policeman was unable to see if he had a weapon. Magruder then put both hands up in the air and began backing away from Johnson. A bike officer arrived and told Johnson to stop and sit, but Johnson ran, with officers in pursuit. The first policeman arrested Magruder, who said Johnson had pulled a knife and stated he was going to “stick” him. Three of Magruder’s friends confirmed his story about the knife, so the policeman returned to Ninth Street and Baltimore Avenue to search for the weapon. He found a knife in the grass where Johnson had been standing before he started to run. While the policeman was arresting Magruder, the bike officer was pursuing Johnson. He had left his bike in the street and another man who happened to come along saw it and picked it up. Instead of riding it, he ran with it toward Baltimore Avenue and dropped in on the ground between two apartment houses. A security guard at one of those apartment houses assisted police in the chase. The man, Irving Bennett Jeffress, 19, of Taneytown,N.Y., was caught near 11th Street. He was charged with theft under $100, theft less than $1,000 and theft from $1,000 to less than $10,000. Magruder was charged with disorderly conduct. Johnson was charged with first- and second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment.

the bill and the watermark of the main image on the face of the bill located on the note’s right side. Police offer the following tips to detect suspicious or counterfeit money. n The genuine portrait appears lifelike and stands out distinctly from the background. The counterfeit portrait is usually lifeless and flat. Details merge into the background, which is often too dark or mottled. n On a genuine bill, the saw-tooth points of the Federal Reserve and Treasury seals are clear, distinct and sharp. The counterfeit seals might have uneven, blunt or broken saw-tooth points. n Genuine serial numbers have a distinctive style and are evenly spaced. The

serial numbers are printed in the same ink color as the Treasury Seal. On a counterfeit, the serial numbers might differ in color or shade of ink from the Treasury seal. The numbers might not be uniformly spaced or aligned. Ocean City police advise people to contact the department if they locate suspicious currency. The department also reminds business owners and community groups that a crime prevention officer is available to conduct counterfeit awareness presentations by appointment through the Public Affairs Office. For further information on detecting counterfeit U.S. currency, people are encouraged to visit the United States Secret Service Web site at www.secretservice.gov/ know_your_money.shtml.

to make these arrests,” said Councilman Joe Hall. “If it goes the other way, if they’re not being selective, it can go back to being a citation, and I don’t think she wants that.” “I have heard the horror stories, people tell me, ‘I just went down to the mailbox with my beer and they grabbed me,’” DiPino said. “I assure you that’s not what our officers are trained to do.” “I understand that’s the perception, and believe me, every letter I get from someone complaining about their citation

says, ‘but I was just walking to the mailbox,’” Meehan quipped. DiPino said that, while officers can make arrests for drunk and disorderly conduct, such circumstances are very difficult to prove and often prevent officers from removing specific individuals who they find are creating a toxic environment. “The idea is that this is to be used to take the spark plug out of the engine, that’s how she explained it to us,” said Council President Jim Hall.

County commissioners adopt FY 2013 enterprise fund budgets Mystic Harbour board concerned about needed growth in service area NANCY POWELL n Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) Ratepayers in the Edgewater Sanitary Service Area, near the Delaware line, are the only county ratepayers who will have higher bills for water and wastewater service in fiscal year 2013. Their charges will increase from $5.375 to $5.887 per 1,000 gallons of water used up to 10,000 gallons per quarter and from $6 to $6.77 per 1,000 gallons of water used from 10,001 to 35,000 gallons per quarter. Users of domestic water only will be billed at $70 per quarter and users of domestic sewer only will be billed at $120 each quarter. Ratepayers in the remaining service areas, Assateague Point, Briddletown, The Landings, Lighthouse Sound, Mystic Harbour, Newark, Ocean Pines, Riddle Farm, River Run and West Ocean City, will continue to pay their same rates.

In addition to those user fees, equivalent dwelling unit charges are collected in the Newark, Ocean Pines, South Point Village, Sunset Village, Snug Harbor, Oyster Harbor, Mystic Harbour and West Ocean City service areas or sub-areas to make debt payments. Each unit charge is a measurement that is approximately the same amount of water and sewer flow used in the average single-family residence. Worcester County provides water and/or sewer services to approximately 14,500 customers in 11 service areas. The Department of Public Works operates seven wastewater treatment plants and its 18 wells pumped 608.8 million gallons of water during 2011. User fees cover the operation and maintenance of those facilities. They also pay for administrative and technical support functions provided by

? 2-/69/. 26

the Treasurer’s Office and the Department of Public Works. The Treasurer’s Office mails and collects more than 55,000 each year and the Department of Public Works provides construction management and engineering support. The total enterprise fund for water and wastewater services is $9.37 million, or $55,990 less than the current $9.43 million budget. The commissioners voted unanimously to adopt the budget during Tuesday’s meeting. A new Mystic Harbour wastewater treatment plant is under construction and expected to be completed in the coming fiscal year. In a May 21 letter to Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners, Chairman Richard Jendrek of the Mystic Harbour Water and Wastewater Advisory Board, said the board is concerned that the service area needs to continue to grow

? ' ?

and use the reserve capacity in the new plant. There is a need, he said, “to secure the additional customers to make the facility financially stable. As long as the service area is not required to pay any costs up front, we should be encouraging projects to increase the customer base in this area.” The commissioners also adopted the budget for Solid Waste Services. That enterprise fund budget, $5.32 million, is $252,636 less than the current $5 million budget for Solid Waste Services. Additional information about enterprise fund budgets or other county budgets may be viewed at the Worcester County Government Center in Snow Hill, the county Treasurer’s Office in the Isle of Wight Government Center at the intersection of St. Martins Neck Road and Route 900 and the Ocean Pines library.

State puts insurance tips on Internet Administration uses Facebook to reach Maryland residents (June 22, 2012) Consumers with questions about insurance now can follow the Maryland Insurance Administration on Facebook to find useful tips from the state regulatory agency. The site includes a listing of events across the state where agency representatives will visit to answer consumers’ questions. Residents also can view videos and find links to timely consumer tips. “A key aspect of the Maryland Insurance Administration’s mission involves educating the resi-

dents of our state about the choices available to them as consumers of insurance products,” says Maryland Insurance Commissioner Therese M. Goldsmith. “Facebook is a great way to get our message out to Maryland residents. The more informed consumers are, the better equipped they are to make purchasing decisions that are right for them.” The site, www.Facebook.com /MdInsuranceAdmin, can be viewed by anyone with an Internet connection, including those who do not have Facebook accounts. A link to the site also can be found on the Insurance Administration’s Web site, www.mdinsurance.-state.md.us. The Maryland Insurance Ad-

ministration, founded as the Maryland Insurance Division in 1872, is an independent state agency located in downtown Baltimore. This agency regulates Maryland’s $26 billion insurance industry and makes certain that insurance companies, health plans and producers (agents and brokers) comply with Maryland insurance law. The MIA also licenses more than 110,000 producers and approximately 1,500 insurance companies; regulates insurance rates; monitors insurer solvency; investigates consumer complaints; and travels across Maryland providing consumers with educational materials about insurance.

WORCESTER COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

Medical contract approved for county jail The commissioners approved the three-year contract with Conmed Medical Services for that company to provide medical services at the county jail. The company will also equip the jail with an electronic medical records system at no cost to the county. That system will save significant time and money and meets an important need to reduce medical costs and dangerous medical errors. Conmed is the current provider of medical services at the jail and provides the same service at most county jails in the state.

Generator maintenance contract awarded The commissioners awarded the service contract for the maintenance of the county’s generators to Curtis Engine & Equipment of Baltimore, which had submitted the low bid of $20,105. Curtis Engine & Maintenance has performed the generator preventative and repair services for the county for the past six years.

Worcester County night at Shorebirds ball game Terry Arietta, an employee for Circuit

Court, will throw out the first pitch during the pre-game ceremony on Thursday, June 28, when the Delmarva Shorebirds play against the Hagerstown Suns. That date is the Worcester County Government Employee Appreciation Night at the game. Kelly Shanahan, the county’s assistant chief administrative officer, drew Arietta’s name from a hat. Shanahan said 172 tickets had been distributed for the game.

Vehicle locater system for public safety vehicles The commissioners approved the request of Emergency Services Director Teresa Owens for the $60,100 purchase of software and licensing for automatic vehicle locator software, licensing, training and installation. The system will provide safety and efficiency for public safety vehicles responding to calls within the county. If an ambulance, for example, became involved in a collision and the occupants were unable to communicate, the dispatcher would be aware the unit was no longer moving and after attempting to contact them with no answer, assistance could be sent to the exact location shown on the console screen.

Kennels possible in county ag districts The commissioners approved a bill permitting kennels, as a special exception, for the raising, breeding and boarding of household pets, in the A-1 agricultural district. An applicant must meet certain minimum lot re-

quirements for lot area, width, front, side and rear setbacks and the facility would be subject to site plan review. It is also stipulated that all outside pens and runways must be located at least 200 feet from any perimeter property line or public road right-of-way.

More dental chairs for county clinic in Berlin The commissioners approved the $66,258.64 purchase of two dental chairs, one dental procedural chair and associated operational equipment from Patterson Dental for the county’s dental clinic on William Street in Berlin. Patterson provided the existing dental chairs and equipment. When the building was plumbed and outfitted, work was done to accommodate the additional chairs. The chairs were not purchased and installed during the original construction because funds were unavailable. “It has worked out to the benefit of our citizens,” Commissioner Louise Gulyas said.

County adopts Liquor Control enterprise fund The commissioners adopted the $15.6 million Department of Liquor Control Enterprise Fund for fiscal year 2013. They created that department effective July 1, 2011 to succeed the Worcester County Liquor Control Board. The county owns or leases and operates facilities for the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages including the liquor control dispensary in Snow Hill and several retail

JUNE 22,2012

stores known as Liquor Marts.

Subdivision plans lead to easement on property The commissioners approved an easement for property owned by William Lee Purnell Jr. so he could formalize and widen his right-of-way access to his property through county-owned property on Route 611. A private road exists on the county property that Purnell has the right to use to access his property because his property does not abut Route 611. The county also uses the road to access The Landings wastewater treatment plant. Purnell wanted to formalize the access because he wants to subdivide his property.

Smaller Homeland Security grant for county The commissioners authorized Owens to proceed with the 2011 sub-recipient grant for the fiscal year 2011 state Homeland Security Program. The award was reduced to $100,271.24 from $316,261 in fiscal year 2010 and $335,395 in fiscal year 2009. In previous years, the grant was used to provide for the emergency management planner position, law enforcement mobile data terminals and support for the automatic external defibrillator and accountability system programs.

Warm spring leads to higher room tax revenue in county (June 22, 2012) Hotel room tax collections in 2012 have experienced a sharp increase over the prior year. From January to April 2012, room taxes in the unincorporated areas of the county totaled $1,111,345 compared to $1,006,179 in 2011 for this same period. This represents a positive increase, with Ocean City hotels generating an additional $98,000 over this same period last year and unincorporated areas of Worcester County generating an additional $13,000. Worcester County Tourism Director Lisa Challenger attributes the increases to a variety of reasons, including the unusually warm weather this spring. “After an unseasonably warm winter and very warm spring, people were ready to get out and enjoy the beach and boardwalk, spruce up their condos and summer places and just get a jumpstart on summer,” Challenger said. “That kind of weather gets everyone in the mood for summer.” Other indicators that summer is off to a strong start are the additional requests for information. Web site visits are up 44 percent over this same time period last year and requests for the Beach & Beyond Visitor’s Guide reached an all-time high with more than 11,000 being sent out in the last month. It certainly can’t hurt that gas prices are falling either.

Preliminary start to possibility of Ocean Downs to be served by Pines WWTP NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The first step in the possibility of Ocean Downs connecting to the Ocean Pines wastewater treatment plant was taken Tuesday when the Worcester County Commissioners voted in favor of an engineering firm to do an analysis and report its findings. Engineering consultant John Salm had contacted the county Public Works Department on behalf of Ocean Downs to ask about the possibility of a connection. John Ross, deputy director of Public Works, said the plant process would need to be evaluated to determine what changes would be required to accommodate the additional flow of wastewater. In a May 21 letter to Ross, engineer Peter Bozick of George, Miles & Buhr, a Salisbury engineering firm, said the Ocean Pines plant would have to be rerated to treat an additional 100,000 gallons of wastewater daily. That amount, he said, would accommodate the potential build-out of Ocean Downs. Owner William Rickman wants to add a movie theater and bowling alley to the property. George, Miles & Buhr would study the situation and identify any upgrades or enlargements needed. Ocean Downs will pay for the study, which the engineering firm estimates will cost $9,500. The Ocean Pines plant now treats 1.2 million gallons of wastewater daily, although it is capable of treating 2.3 million gallons of wastewater. If the Maryland Department of the Environment agrees on the specific changes required at the plant to handle the additional wastewater, George, Miles & Buhr would provide cost estimates and phasing for the improvements. The second phase would involve meetings with the Maryland Department of the Environment, obtaining permits and additional work. The engineering form did not include a fee for that phase, but said the scope of that phase and its fee would be negotiated later, pending the outcome of the first phase. “If hurdles come up, we’ll look at other options,” Ross said. The process, he said, would involve public meetings and public hearings. “This is just the very first step,” he said. Ocean Downs’ wastewater is treated by the plant at GlenRiddle, which has a capacity of treating only 400,000 gallons of wastewater per day. Commissioner Louise Gulyas voted against the study because of concerns that Rickman might want to build a hotel or restaurant on the property, although he is not allowed to do that because of restrictions set by the Maryland General Assembly.

The Casino at Ocean Downs could be served by the Ocean Pines wastewater treatment plant. If a movie theater and bowling alley are built, they would also be served by the plant.

Temporary public use closure at Assateague National Seashore (June 22, 2012) A new area of Assateague Island National Seashore is temporarily closed to public use in order to protect breeding piping plovers. The closed area includes the portion of the public Over-Sand Vehicle (OSV) route south of kilometer marker (KM) 18.0. All vehicle use south of KM 18.0 is prohibited. The updated closure began June 15, and will remain in effect for up to four weeks. To continue to accommodate overnight camping, the designated “bullpen” camping area has been temporarily relocated north of the new closure area within the existing OSV zone. The interior portion of northern Assateague Island, including much of the island north of Assateague State Park, has been closed to public use since April. The ocean beaches along northern Assateague Island remain open and accessible from Assateague State Park and from the boat landing area on the Island’s northern tip. The area closures are necessary to protect piping plovers (Charadrius melodus), small migratory shorebirds that nest on open, sandy beaches and raise their chicks along the ocean, bay and interior sand flats where they feed on insects and other invertebrates. On Assateague, the piping plover breeding season generally runs from April through mid-August. Plovers are easily disturbed by humans and will

Piping Plover

leave their nests or feeding areas if approached. Piping plover are listed as “threatened with extinction” by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service due in part to the loss of natural breeding habitat elsewhere along its East Coast range. Assateague Island is the only nesting site in Maryland and one of the densest breeding areas in the MidAtlantic region, making this population critical for long-term survival of the species. The National Park Service works hard to maintain a balance between public use and resource protection. Sometimes that coexistence is difficult to achieve, particularly during the busy summer months.

A major shift in school leadership was recognized Tuesday, with Worcester County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jon Andes and Assistant Superintendent for Administration Ed Barber both set to retire. “This individual [Barber] kept the superintendent from making some bad decisions,” said Andes in presenting Barber with a plaque commemorating their 16 years of service together. “He would come into my office, shut the door, and make his point. I was always grateful for someone telling it to me straight up.” In turn, Board President Bob Rothermel announced that the Teacher Scholarship Fund would be renamed as the Dr. Jon M. Andes Scholarship in commemoration of Andes’ service. The fund is designed, Andes said, around the idea of ‘growing your own’ when it comes to teachers. Scholarships are offered to Worcester county seniors who have committed both to going into a teaching field that is considered critical, and to coming back to teach in Worcester County after their education is complete. State Sen. Jim Mathias was on hand to recognize the retirees. “When we, as politicians, go before the state on education, we go knowing Worcester

The board heard an update regarding Worcester County’s Arts Immersion programs, which encourages inter-departmental cooperation in developing ways for students to use visual-spatial exercises to understand more traditional academic concepts in math and reading. Lessons, according to Coordinator of Instruction Tamara Mills, have included the use of physical models to demonstrate mathematical notions of area and volume, as well as projects that involve the use of objects and images to define literary themes such as mood and subtext. “As we move towards the new state-mandated Common Core requirements, we keep in mind how these activities can move into other applications for students and incorporate 21st-century skills,” Mills said.

Consolidating elections means running harder There are three kinds of voters: passionate voters, interested voters and duty-bound voters, the latter being those who cast their ballots not because of who’s running, but because they see it as a civic responsibility. The first group has turned many a local election in Ocean City over the years, as a thousand or so deeply committed supporters of a particular candidate or cause work their will because of an otherwise low voter turnout. That could change if the Ocean City Council approves a measure to move the municipal election from its traditional October date to coincide with the national election in November. The implications of such a switch are thought provoking, since it could seriously dilute the influence of the comparatively small groups of passionate supporters and the mini-political machines that some candidates enjoy. Rather than concentrating on picking up 25 percent of the 25 percent voter turnout to guarantee victory, candidates might be dealing with voter participation in the 40 to 60 percent range, which would make running for office in this town a whole new ball game. Under this approach, candidates would have to work much harder and be much more visible to more people, many of whom may not have any axes to grind in local politics. This would be a good thing for candidates who don’t necessarily benefit from a cult-like following, since consolidating the elections would draw voters who care less about City Hall politics and more about what government should do for them. In other words, this would be a real election, with real campaigning by a host of candidates who will run not only on what they have done, but also on what they will do and whether they can back it up. It remains to be seen whether the current four supporters of consolidation will stay the course, but politics in Ocean City certainly would be more interesting if they do.

When it comes to laws concerning open containers of alcoholic beverages, my feeling is there’s no point having an alcoholic beverage container if it’s closed. Under the physics principle that every action requires a reaction, it only stands to reason that if there is an “Open Container” law there also should be a “Closed Container” law. I want to be stopped by the local constabulary and have them say, “Excuse me, but are you going to open that and drink it or am I going to have to run you in?” That way, I can go home and say, “I was just carrying it around and they made me do it. It’s the law.” The truth is, I don’t drink like I used to – now I use just one hand. Just kidding. I still use two hands because after having several, it takes that many to find the neck on the bottle. No, really, I am just kidding. Although many people believe that I imbibe every day of my wasted life, it isn’t so. I do not stop on my way home from work (except for Thursdays) to have a couple of cold ones and I do not routinely pop a beer or pour

By Stewart Dobson something over ice once I have arrived. That’s because I do a fair amount of cooking and have found that drinking when you’re cooking doesn’t work if you’d like to know what ingredients you’re using before you start cooking them. This sober approach prevents people from making dinner consisting of, say, a radish casserole accompanied by a rockfish smoothie. On the other hand, I have created some dishes over the years that should have been doused with alcohol from an open container

and set ablaze as a warning to others to stay away. As for our recent Open Container re-criminalization, I can only suggest that people like my wife and sister-in-law, whose hellraising ways are neatly concealed by a manufactured aura of middle-aged respectability, had better be on their toes from now on. They nearly got nabbed one night on the beach back when drinking in public here was a criminal offense after being questioned by the police about the content of their so-called teacups. Having lived with this woman for more than 30 years, I am well aware of the danger to society that she poses, not to mention the wild countenance of my sister-in-law, of whom it has been said is the most feared teacher of developmentally disabled children in all the land. I was disappointed, therefore, when the officer found that their teacups contained … tea. I mean they did look suspiciously respectable. And to think, all that effort gone to waste, when I could have had the night out on my own had it only been a Thursday.

think that we have to listen to our voters and our constituents.” The city’s voter participation rates in the past two elections have been around 25 percent. While this is low compared to previous town elections, it is somewhat higher than the national average for municipal contests. Hall, the staunchest supporter of consolidated election, has cited voter confusion in the past. “I’ve been very consistent in my advocation for our municipals to be combined with the national election,” Hall said. “I can’t tell you how many people over the years have come up to me and said, ‘I’m going to vote for you next week, Joey,’ and I have to say, ‘Well, the town elections were actually last week.’” However, the counterargument of having a separate day to make the city’s elections stand out still held sway for some. “I think the tradition is important,” said Councilman Brent Ashley. “And thank goodness there is a lot of confusion, without that I probably wouldn’t be here. We all probably wouldn’t be here.” The sentiment was also shared by the council’s two acknowledged elder statesmen — Mayor Rick Meehan and Council President Jim Hall, both of whom have been involved in local politics since the 1980s “I have to admit I’m a traditionalist,” said Meehan. “I have to agree with Brent.” President Hall made a quality over quantity argument. “I know so few people anymore, the town has really changed,” he said. “And that [our election] is one day when you really see the people who want to come out, want to vote, want to show up at the polls. It’s kind of hard to miss that the election is coming. That is one day that we [candidates] get to mingle and see the people who are dedicated voters, pitch ourselves, and thank them for coming. When you add the local and national and the judges and all that [you get people who care less about the town].” Councilwoman Margaret Pillas objected to the suddenness of the idea and the fact that it hadn’t been advertised to the public before moving forward. “If you’re going to address this, it has to be on the agenda,” Pillas said. “No one in the community knows you’re thinking about this. I will say I got one phone call. But until people are here to talk about it I don’t think we should be voting on it.” However, the motion carried with the support of Council Secretary Lloyd Martin, who agreed with Joe Hall. “I’ve heard the same comment that Joe got more in this last election than any other year,” Martin said. “Even my neighbors, people I see every day, don’t know when to go vote for me. But they do care about the community, they vote for the county commissioners and the judges and the clerk of the court [in the November election], they know who those people are and they know their names.” City Solicitor Guy Ayres will draft a charter amendment for the date change, which will be discussed at the Monday, July 2 council meeting.

Statewide breakfast program expands to 273 schools

Continued from Page 18 method that lets teachers set their own objectives for their own students. “This gives the teachers a lot of flexibility and a lot of responsibility,” Gaddis said. He noted that Worcester has been one of the few counties to successfully develop a cooperative system, with many others having to default to a state-crafted standard after reaching an impasse with teachers. “We did not want the state imposing a model on us,” Gaddis said.

Facilities plan The board accepted the 2012-2013 Facilities Master Plan for county schools, which outlines a long-term time frame for the renovation efforts of Worcester’s aging school buildings. While construction is wrapping up at Pocomoke High School, the plan notes that the board will be asking the county this coming fall to approve funding on their fiscal year 2014 budget for an overhaul of Snow Hill High School. The next year would then see a request to renovate Showell Elementary, although that would mean construction at Showell would not begin before January of 2015. “The theme that’s laid out here is that we will approach the county and state to renovate Snow Hill in October, and then the following summer we will hopefully begin the process with Showell,” said Assistant Superintendent for Administration Ed Barber.

Meals for Achievement credited with improving academics and behavior (June 22, 2012) The Maryland State Department of Education last week announced that 273 schools in the state will share $3.38 million in state funds to participate in the Maryland Meals for Achievement classroom breakfast program during the 2012-13 school year. Included in Worcester County are Buckingham Elementary, Cedar Chapel Special School, Pocomoke Elementary and Middle schools, and Snow Hill Elementary and Middle schools. Gov. Martin O’Malley’s commitment to ending childhood hunger has resulted in a $560,000 increase in funding over last year, allowing 41 more schools to participate than previous years. MMFA is an innovative classroom breakfast project that was launched in 1998 in several Maryland elementary schools. Students participating in the program have the opportunity to eat school breakfast in their classrooms every morning, at no cost, regardless of family income. Schools with the program have an average daily breakfast participation of 70 percent compared to schools without MMFA that have an average daily breakfast participation of 15 percent. The MMFA program is the most effec-

tive way of increasing participation in the School Breakfast Program. MMFA funds are intended to help cover the cost of providing a free meal to students who would normally pay from 30 cents to $1.75 for school breakfast. However, by state law, at least 40 percent of the students enrolled in a school must be eligible for free or reduced-price meals for the school to qualify for MMFA. The bulk of funding for the School Breakfast Program is federal, derived from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which provides cash subsidies for each meal served to students. “Students who eat breakfast daily, perform better academically, have improved concentration and better classroom participation at school. MMFA, like all of our School Breakfast Programs, provides a great breakfast alternative for many students who do not eat breakfast at home,” said Interim State Superintendent of Schools Bernard Sadusky. Moreover, researchers at Massachu-

setts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School have credited MMFA with improving students’ test scores, behavior and well-being. Teachers, principals, nurses, and guidance counselors all report positive changes following the start of a classroom breakfast program in their schools. There are efforts under way to increase breakfast participation in all Maryland schools. The School Breakfast Program is one of several nutrition programs included in the Governor’s Partnership to End Childhood Hunger. This partnership seeks to eliminate childhood hunger by 2015, a goal that is consistent with President Obama’s efforts. For more information on the Maryland Meals for Achievement Program, contact MSDE’s School and Community Nutrition Programs Branch at 410-7670214 or e-mail Brenda Schwaab at bschwaab@msde.state.md.us.

Record-breaking number of blood donations in 2011-2012 (June 22, 2012) The Blood Bank of Delmarva’s 2011-12 School Blood Drive Program resulted in record-breaking participants, drives and donations. From September 2011 to May 2012, 73 high schools and 13 colleges throughout the region hosted a record 139 blood drives resulting in 8,704 blood donors drawn. That is an increase of 11.9 percent from the previous record of 7,774 blood donations collected during the 2010-11 school year. Each unit of blood can save up to three lives. “The administration and students at the participating schools really did a phenomenal job coordinating blood drives, promoting them, scheduling donors and volunteers, and donating blood,” said Kelly Sakiewicz, school and community blood drive coordinator for the Blood Bank of Delmarva, a nonprofit, community service program that provides blood for the 16 hospitals in Delaware and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. “Their enthusiasm, energy and dedication is exceptional and we thank them for helping make this a record year for the School Blood Drive Program.” Blood Bank of Delmarva will hold four awards luncheons in the fall to recognize the local high schools that contributed to the success of the School Blood Drive Program. The luncheons, which also serve as

the official kickoff to next year’s school program, are attended by students and school advisors who will play a major role in organizing high school blood drives during the school year. “As the blood donor population ages, it is crucial for us to educate young people about the importance of donating blood and how anyone at anytime may need their life-saving donation,” said Michael Waite, director of marketing and community relations at the Blood Bank. “We hope that all of the student participants experienced how simple donating blood can be and that they choose to be life-long heroes by continuing to donate blood.” For more information about the School Blood Drive Program or the contributions from individual schools, contact Waite at 302-737-8405, Ext. 732.

Euro tournament a boon for resort’s foreign visitors, bars ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) For most Americans, watching a soccer match can be less of a primer in the game itself and more a lesson in the nationalist history of Europe. A seemingly inconsequential inquiry – why, for instance, does the Irish team wear those black armbands? – can elicit the most pointed of responses. “Because **** the English, that’s why,” was the refrain from the back of the house Monday afternoon. Clearly, it’s more than a fashion statement. This isn’t the NBA. For the past two weeks – and continuing through the first of July – the Union of European Football Associations has held is quadrennial European Championships, known in common parlance as ‘the Euros.’ The tournament is held between the top 16 national teams on the continent, as determined by a complex seeding system. And although this year’s competition is being held in far-flung Eastern Europe,

with games taking place in stadiums throughout Poland and Ukraine, the contest has hit nowhere in America as hard as it has Ocean City. Only natural, given the town’s massive summertime population of foreign students who come to the resort for employment as part of the U.S. State Department’s student work-travel program, and of whom the vast majority are European. In particular, the past several years have seen a resurgence in the number of Irish students coming to work at the beach. and, coincidentally, this year was the first time that the Republic of Ireland qualified for the Euro tournament since 1988. “They’ve been ecstatic. They’re in here for every game,” said Shenanigan’s General Manager Greg Shockley. “It’s been a huge boost for us in particular and for a lot of the other bars in town as well.” “I would say there’ve been at least 200 in here for each game Ireland plays,” said bartender Chris Traylor. “We’ve had to

bring on extra people at the last minute. Not that that’s a bad thing.” But less than the outcome of the tournament itself, the focus of most Irish students has been the social occasion. Many, in fact, said that being away in America made the opportunity to come rally around the home team more appealing. “I’d much rather be here,” said David Collins, when asked if he would rather be back in Ireland for the national matches. “I’d be at the pub watching it either way. Actually, I’d be at the pub right now whether there was a game on or not.” Collins, along with his twin brother Tom, was one of a large pack of young men who showed up in requisite green jerseys for Monday’s contest. “It gives them a little chance to get together and to enjoy something for themselves, which is great,” said Shockley, who himself employs a number of Irish students on the Shenanigan’s staff. “I’ve met so many people here, though,” said Kelly Fortune. “I just texted

at least a hundred people that I met at the last games, telling them to come to this one.” “It is more of a thing for the fellas, but why not come?” said Fortune’s friend Susan Irwin. “We’re at the beach in America. It’s like a holiday.” But not everything about the air was festive, at least not when it came to soccer’s social significance – something that often has much deeper roots in Europe than an equivalent professional sport would in America. Briefly before Monday’s match against, the UEFA approved the Irish team’s request to wear black armbands during the game in remembrance of the Loughinisland killings, which occurred during a similar game against Italy in the 1994 World Cup. Several members of the Ulster Volunteer Force, a paramilitary group of Protestant Irish loyal to British control in Northern Ireland, raided a pub in County Down on suspicion that the men watching the game inside were Catholics and sympathizers to the Irish Republican Army. The shooting, which left six dead, as well as the resulting retaliation by the IRA, shook Ireland to the core. But less of a touchy subject was the surprising fact that, despite its players being required to be of Irish decent, Ireland’s coach himself is an Italian. Much like a medieval mercenary general, Giovanni Trapatonni is the former coach of many well-regarded teams, including the Italian national squad, but recently took a deal to become Ireland’s head. “It doesn’t matter to us where he’s from, as long as he gets the job done,” said David Collins. And the Irish have no trouble admitting that they’re not at the top of the national heap, at least when it comes to soccer. “Spanish are definitely the best team in the game,” said Brian O’Sullivan. “Though the half of them are Catalan anyway,” he said, referring to the fact that most of Spain’s best players are not ethnically Spanish themselves, but members of the country’s Catalan minority. “That’s the beauty of it,” said Shockley. “The Irish aren’t actually that good at soccer. But they come out, they sing, they cheer – they lose – but they have a good time.” O’Sullivan noted that the Euros are probably an exception in Ireland’s enthusiasm for soccer. The nation’s more traditional sports leagues – such as Gaelic Football, a cross between soccer, rugby, and American-style football – are better watched on a regular basis. “We’ll watch the British league football [soccer], maybe the Spanish league if there’s nothing else on,” O’Sullivan said. But the enthusiasm for the sport, at least on this day, spread even outside the Irish enclave in Ocean City. “I try to see whatever games I can. More to watch them [the Irish students] than the game itself,” said Jason Radcliff. Radcliff, an Ocean City resident of many years, lives in an apartment above Shenanigan’s, making it particularly easy for him to come downstairs whenever things are about to get entertaining. “I’ve see them shake this bar almost out of the floorboards when they score a goal,” he said.

Manslaughter case in West OC bar death postponed Former 707 Sports Bar owner collapsed, died after confrontation with Walker NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The trial of the man accused of causing the death of a West Ocean City bar owner has been postponed until July 11. It had been scheduled for Thursday, June 14, but was granted a postponement on June 8.

Cyle Morgan Walker, 26, lived in a trailer park on Old Bridge Road not far from the 707 Sports Bar, where he allegedly caused the death of Carey Patrick Flynn, 63, the bar’s owner, on Oct. 6. According to police records, a Worcester County Sheriff’s deputy went to the restaurant at approximately 2:30 a.m., after reports that Flynn had been assaulted and was experiencing shortness of breath following an altercation outside the establishment with Walker. Flynn, 63, of West Ocean City died at 5:30 a.m., at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin.

A Worcester County grand jury indicted Walker Jan. 25 with manslaughter after reviewing the autopsy reports of the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Baltimore. The autopsy was reviewed to determine if Walker’s altercation with Flynn outside the bar on Oct. 6 was to blame for his death, since the restaurant owner had a pacemaker to maintain his heart rate. The 707 closed permanently in December 2011. Flynn took over ownership of the business from Bill Rados, when Rados opened the Decatur Diner in 2009 on Route 610 in West Ocean City.

OC mgmt company employee charged with thefts Laptop computer, iPod and camera among stolen items NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) An employee of an Ocean City property management company was charged with thefts from two units the company manages. Justin Matthew Caple, 23, of Ocean Pines, is accused of taking an iPod Touch from a Tunnel Avenue unit on June 9. The resident told police that an employee of the management company had been in his unit to make a repair.

When Caple was interviewed by police, he admitted taking the iPod. Police located the stolen item at a Salisbury pawn shop. The next day, Caple entered a unit on 140th Street, where he took a laptop computer and case, a touch screen tablet with a charger, a wireless headset with a bag, an Olympus digital camera, cigarettes and a lighter, according to the charging document. Those items belonged to the two women who were staying in the unit. The women told police they were sure no one entered the unit while they were sleeping. One of the woman said someone from the management com-

pany went to the residence to conduct a service call. The laptop computer was found at the same Salisbury pawn shop as the iPod. An employee there said she was familiar with Caple and she noticed when she turned on the laptop that she saw a woman’s name among the contents. The name was of one of the woman in the residence where it had been stolen. Police then charged Caple with firstdegree burglary, theft from $1,000 to $10,000 and theft of less than $100. In the first case, Caple was charged with theft of an item with a value of less than $1,000.

Information sought in murder of Millsboro woman Continued from Page 1

She was baptized by immersion in water during the past year. In a video of her recorded shortly before that baptism and posted online at www.lowereasternshore news.com, she smiled often and said she lived for the Lord. She talked briefly about growing up in a Catholic household and how religion was an issue when she met her future husband, who was not Catholic. Her sister, she said, told her that as long as she believed in God, the different religious denominations would not matter in the marriage and that it was OK to

marry a man of a different denomination. That sister was killed in a motor vehicle accident in 2003 and Nicole said she cherished that memory of her. She also said it was because of her husband that she was in the church that day. “I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for him,” she said. Deputies from the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, investigators from the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation and the Delaware State Police have also been involved in the case. Crime scene technicians from the MSP Foren-

sic Sciences Division gathered evidence at the site where her body was found and detectives have interviewed suspects. Anyone who was traveling on or around the Swamp Road area on Thursday evening, June 14, who may have noticed any vehicles on the side of the road or people walking in the area are asked to contact the Worcester County Lower Shore Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776. A reward is offered to anyone with information leading to the arrest of a suspect or suspects responsible for Bennett’s murder. Calls will remain confidential.

West Ocean City man charged with his eighth DUI NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) A 47-year-old West Ocean City man was charged Sunday with his eighth drunken driving offense after being involved in a collision in the area of Route 50 and Walston Switch Road. According to police, James Nibblett Jr. was driving a 2002 Ford Explorer at about 3 a.m. when he failed to stop at a red light.

His vehicle struck the rear of a 2005 Suzuki SUV, which was stopped at the light. Inside the Suzuki were Laura Iannello of Pennsylvania and four passengers. When Maryland State Police troopers arrived, they said Nibblett appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. He failed field sobriety tests and was arrested. According to Maryland State Police, his driver’s license was suspended because of multiple DUI offenses. Although Nibblett

was required to have an ignition interlock device on his vehicle, it was not on the Explorer he was driving. The victims refused medical treatment at the scene and none were taken to the hospital. Nibblett is facing trial July 18 in District Court in Salisbury for a charge of driving while impaired and other offenses after being arrested April 24 on Beaglin Park Drive near Salisbury.

Casino work group falls through, tax rate remains major issue Special session in doubt as house members come out against lower tariff on slots ALEXANDER PYLES ■ The Daily Record Newswire (June 22, 2012) After nearly six hours of closed-door negotiations, efforts to reach a consensus on expanding gambling in Maryland collapsed Wednesday when members of the House of Delegates balked at lowering the tax rate on slot machines at state casinos. The staunch opposition from the three delegates on the 11-member work group impaneled to develop a consensus on the thorny political issue jeopardized the possibility of a special session of the General Assembly next month.

Work group Chairman John W. Morton III said the group could not recommend that Gov. Martin O’Malley call a special session because it “would not be successful.” He said opposition among House members of the work group could reflect a broader lack of support in the full House. Matthew Gallagher, O’Malley’s chief of staff, said it is still up to the governor whether to call a special session. O’Malley had said he would call a session the week of July 9 if the work group reached a consensus likely to win legislative approval. O’Malley, speaking to reporters in Baltimore, said he was perplexed by the opposition of the work group’s House members. “For some reason, suddenly, the House decided they did not want to share on that consensus for reasons that

don’t make a whole lot of sense to me, and reasons that were not voiced, really, heretofore,” O’Malley said. “And so I can’t entirely explain it to you. I’m looking forward to hearing back from the Speaker of the House sometime.” The final vote on a set of recommendations that included authorizing a casino at National Harbor, legalizing table games and lowering the slots tax was 8-3, with all three delegates — Frank S. Turner, D-Howard; Sheila E. Hixson, D-Montgomery and Peter A. Hammen, D-Baltimore — voting against the plan. Turner said delegates serving on the work group would have supported a sixth casino at the current tax rate of 67 percent on slot machines. Lowering the tax rate made the plan unacceptable and unlikely to pass in the House, he said. “It would have been difficult,” Turner said. “It was already hard to sell but that

would have made it really hard, a different tax rate. … We found a consensus on most issues. The stumbling block was the tax rate. … If we could have agreed on the tax rate, we were all there on the sixth facility.” Turner kept open the possibility that a compromise could be reached in the next several weeks. “You never can know,” he said. “You never know what can happen between now and the 9th. There’s always wiggle room.” Delegates huddled apart from a closed-door meeting of the work group for about two hours Wednesday, trying to hammer out the tax issue, Turner said, contributing to a three-hour delay in the start of the public meeting. All 11 members of the work group supported adding table games, shifting the responsibility of buying slot machines to casino operators, creating a gambling commission with a professional director and removing restrictions on casinos’ hours of operation. But work group members representing the Senate would not accept any deal that did not include a sixth casino, whose potential operators — including MGM Resorts International Inc. — have said could not be built unless the tax rate was lowered. The majority of the work group was prepared to recommend that the operator of a National Harbor casino have a tax rate on slots of 62 percent, 5 percentage points lower than current law. The Maryland Live casino at Arundel Mills mall and a future Baltimore casino would have their tax rate lowered to 62 percent once the National Harbor casino opened, under that plan, and table games would be taxed at a 20 percent rate. But the work group was left gridlocked over the tax rate issue, Morton said, despite the “extremely large size of the benefits” to the state coffers. State fiscal analysts projected that — with the recommendations the majority of the work group was prepared to make — about 4,000 jobs would be created and the Education Trust Fund would gain $223 million a year from increased slots revenue. But Hixson, chair of the Ways and Means Committee, said the state should wait for its five already-approved casinos to open so that a benefit analysis could be conducted with actual numbers. “Any expansion of gaming facilities in Maryland before the five designated sites are open and performing is premature and not in the best interest of the state,” said Joseph Weinberg, president of gaming for Maryland Live developer The Cordish Cos. “In fact, no state in the country has added casino sites prior to their initial facilities being open, stabilized, and actual performance data available to analyze. We appreciate the seriousness with which the work group approached its duties.” Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., D-Calvert and Prince George’s, a strong supporter of a casino at National Harbor, was not available for comment after the meeting, nor was House Speaker Michael E. Busch, D-Anne Arundel.

State decision on gaming expansion delayed NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) Monday’s meeting of the county body overseeing the local aspects of legalized gambling was mostly for naught, following the lack of a decision on Wednesday by the state task force considering the expansion of gambling in Maryland. The lack of a recommendation by Gov. Martin O’Malley’s Maryland Work Group to Consider Gaming Expansion leaves in doubt a July special session of the General Assembly to vote on whether to allow table games at Mary-

land’s casinos and whether to permit a new location in Prince George’s County. It also renders moot much of what the county’s Local Development Council discussed Monday in Snow Hill, even though the council’s concerns were mostly unrelated and instead focused on the possible liberalization of the operating restrictions on the Casino at Ocean Downs. It also means the letter the council voted to send to the work group will have no affect for now. The letter says the council supports the expansion of gaming to include table games, but does not support the removal

of restrictions on serving free food and alcohol. The removal of those restrictions would give the casino an unfair advantage against “all of the other established businesses that current support this facility,” the letter states. “We do, however, understand the need to use food vouchers to compete with other out-of-state locations to attract bus trips and day-trippers to the Casino and would support this concept with practical limitations,” the letter continues. Ocean Down may not give away food, because of the current state law, but casino manager Joe Cavilla said the op-

eration is losing business of bus groups to other casinos that can give away food. Bus groups often expect to get food vouchers and he wants to be able to offer those vouchers to increase business. Some casinos give away alcoholic drinks, but no businesses in Worcester County with an alcoholic beverage license may give away alcohol. The Worcester County Board of License Commissioners, which regulates the use of alcohol licenses, does not permit it and the practice of giving away drinks at other casinos is changing. “The trend in the industry is getting See COUNCIL on Page 32

away from free alcohol,” Cavilla said. The affect locally on the no-decision on table games will be minimal, as William Rickman, owner of the Casino at Ocean Downs, said during the April meeting of the council that such games would be limited in his establishment. He said it would cost approximately $10 million to set up and the return on that investment would be only about $1 million yearly. The only games he would provide, he said, would be for entertainment to those who accompany a slots player to the casino, but who do not play slots themselves. Meanwhile, revenues are headed up at Ocean Downs, but that is expected because of the tourist season. “You’ll still see seasonality,” Cavilla said. May’s revenue of $120,817.33 was slightly below the $121,696.39 figure from May 2011, but well above the April revenues of $103,960.21. The 2012 figures are for Worcester County only and reflect the 18 percent distribution to Baltimore and Prince George’s counties in accordance with state law. “Come fall, the numbers will fall again,” Cavilla said.

State is whistling Dixie, Church says of mandates to clean bay NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 15, 2012) The Worcester County Commissioners are less than pleased with the state’s directive to develop stronger strategies for a watershed implementation plan. The state was not satisfied with Worcester’s draft plan and supplemented it with additional requirements. Those additions are substantive and sizeable, Ed Tudor, director of the Department of Development Review and Permitting, told the commissioners during their Tuesday, June 19, meeting in Snow Hill. Specifically, the state wants the county to remove 577 acres of impervious urban surfaces. None were removed by 2010. The state also wants Worcester to install an additional 2,800 acres of urban filtering practices, of which three were com-

pleted by 2010, and 283 acres of urban forest buffers, of which none were completed by 2010. Other changes include the an annual implementation of 342 acres of erosion and sediment control on construction activities, an increase of 240 acres per year, and the conservation of an additional 95 acres of forest per year for a total of 1,078 acres of forest conserved annual by 2025. Worcester had conserved 9983 acres by 2010. The change that most perturbed the commissioners was the directive to upgrade 1,859 septic tanks to better technology for a total of 1,896 systems by 2025. The county had upgraded 37 systems by 2010. “Obviously, the cost of that is outrageous,” said Tudor, who estimated the cost at $18.5 million. The county’s deadline to reply to the

state is July 2. Tudor presented three options, but did not advocate any of them. His first option is to take no new or additional action. The second option would be to implement all of those practices outlined by the state by developing the necessary funding sources to accomplish the work. The third option would be somewhere between the first two. Among other things, the county could establish storm water management utilities and regulations requiring new development to have a zero pollutant impact. “This is beyond crazy,” Commissioner Virgil Shockley said of the state’s directives. Shockley added that other commissioners in other counties think the same way as the Worcester County Commissioners. The state wants the watershed imple-

mentation plan to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay, and if the state does that, the Mississippi River would be next, Shockley said. He also decried the state’s idea to plant trees on farmland. “They’re not looking at reasonable things,” he said. “How are we supposed to feed people if they take away farmland?” “It’s another unfunded state mandate,” Commissioner President Bud Church said. “I don’t think the state realizes water runs downhill. Until they get other states on board, they’re just whistling Dixie.” The commissioners voted unanimously to have a work group to develop a plan and to send a copy of the county’s response to other counties, to the Maryland Association of Counties and to the legislators representing Worcester in the General Assembly.

All dressed up and nowhere to park ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The Ocean City Board of Zoning Appeals last week sided in favor of Galaxy 66’s new Skye Bar, allowing it to keep its sound-proof barriers in order to satisfy the Worcester County Board of License Commissioners’ requirements with regard to liquor and live entertainment. At the same time, the restaurant’s new attraction dodged the one lethal bullet that probably controls more of Ocean City’s physical development than any other. Because, despite what one would expect as topics of public interest and official concern — noise, aesthetics, environmental impact, etc. — the vast majority of Ocean City’s zoning queries center around the one word that makes every business owner cringe when spoken at a BZA meeting: Parking. Namely, the fact that you’ll never, ever have enough of it. When Galaxy owner Roger Cebula went before the liquor board to request that his liquor permit be expanded to allow live music, he was told his permission would be conditional on installing a 7-foot-high sound-proof glass wall on the North and South edges of his rooftop Skye Bar. However, Cebula soon discovered he had robbed Peter to pay Paul. Under city

Covanta takes over trash services after ECR declines new deal ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) Things are looking up for Ocean City’s beleaguered Public Works department, as new trash hauler Covanta has taken over this week after previous contractor East Coast Resources declined to renew its deal and began winding down its operation nearly three weeks early – a move which left the city’s staff scrambling to get garbage off the island. “The last three weeks have been difficult, that’s as polite as I can be,” said Public Works Deputy Director Dick Malone. “We’re probably going to end up in court with them.” ECR has been the city’s trash hauler for the past three years, sending trailers to the city’s 65th Street maintenance complex to pick up garbage collected throughout the day by the city’s compactor trucks. The waste is then taken to an incinerator plant in Pennsylvania, where it is burned to power steam turbines that produce electricity. However, according to Malone, ECR apparently underwent a hefty change in leadership several months ago that resulted in the company trying to cut corners when it came to Ocean City’s waste hauling. “They fired all the managers who we’d worked with over the last three years,” Malone said. “They stopped taking our calls. Luckily, they had one brand new dispatcher who was too new to lie to us.

She told us that they were scaling down their operation and that no new trucks would be coming after June 1.” The problem, however, was that ECR’s contract was to run through June 17, leaving Malone with no other option but to take care of things in-house. Many years ago, the city used to haul its own trash, but it was decided later on to downsize and use contractors for the service instead. “Thus, we sold most of our trash trailers years ago, but we kept one, thank goodness,” said Malone.

This trailer was supplemented with two trailers rented from Boyd Trucking and the waste was hauled the relatively short distance to the Worcester County landfill in Newark. On very busy days, Malone said that the compactor trucks themselves were being run down Route 113 after all the collection on the island was over for the day. “Of course, that’s very inefficient and very expensive, since you’re still paying for the same tonnage, but you’ve got more trucks on the road. Diesel fuel is diesel

fuel,” said Malone. Despite the strain, the problem was strictly back-end – collection service in the city’s neighborhoods was not affected. But when county fees and the cost of the additional trailers from Boyd are factored in, Malone said that the city was spending roughly $90 per ton of disposal, as opposed to the $52.50 flat rate that had been negotiated with ECR. The city disposed of more than 1,500 tons of trash over the period of ECR’s deficiency, leavSee OCEAN on Page 37

JUNE 22,2012

North OC promotion marches onward; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beach Bashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; set for Aug. ZACK HOOPES â&#x2013;  Staff Writer (June 22, 2012) The City Council made good on its promise Monday night to make a significant financial outlay for a North Ocean City event this summer, approving $22,135 for Augustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uptown Beach Bash.â&#x20AC;? The event is the brainchild of the North Ocean City Business Alliance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a group of north-end business owners who formed earlier this year to lobby city government for more equitable geographic distribution of tourism dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Brad Hoffman, owner of Spark Productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our main goal has been to raise awareness, to let people know that the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop at 28th Street,â&#x20AC;? said Greene Turtle owner Steve Pappas, one of the NOCBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strongest proponents, earlier this year. Hoffmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multi-part event stretches

over three days, with paddleboard races on Aug. 24, a world-record attempt bikini parade on the 25th, and the Local Palooza arts and music fair on the 26th. Events will be held at Northside Park, as well as on the beach between the Princess Royale at 100th Street and the Carousel at 118th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really felt like this had a lot more legs because it was over three days, on a weekend in late August where we often see a downturn in business,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said. The centerpiece event â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Bikini Parade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will attempt to break the Guiness World Record for a mass bikini march, currently set around 450 participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended to be a contest, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a celebration. We want moms, daughters, grandmas, everyone to turn out,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised its only 450 people,â&#x20AC;? said Council President Jim Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could probably go down to 9th Street and get you 450

women in a couple minutes.â&#x20AC;? In March, Pappas and Carousel managing partner Michael James pressed the City Council to commit to more efforts uptown. City officials professed strong support, and even moved to earmark $22,000 in seed money for uptown events â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a budget to which Hoffmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event has been tailored. Pappas and the NOCBA have continued to profess the need for North Ocean City to keep up with the appeal of booming off-island areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason we started this thing is because of the growth in West Ocean City, Berlin, Ocean Pines, and particularly around the casino,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing for them, but we have to keep pace.â&#x20AC;? On Monday, the council continued to be supportive of such an initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a no-brainer for me,â&#x20AC;? said Councilman Brent Ashley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told by a few north-end businessmen that this could be the Super Bowl of the summer for them.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Joe Hall said he was particularly interested in the northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealth of smaller, more residential neighborhoods such as Montego Bay and Little Salisbury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are the kind of places, the kind of lifestyles where the old-time beach parties and beach culture started,â&#x20AC;? Hall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we should definitely be promoting that to our advantage.â&#x20AC;? The neighborhood environment of the Northside Park area was the only source of trepidation amongst council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do have a couple concerns, mainly

what looks like 10 continuous hours of music,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Rick Meehan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not so sure that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gong to go over with the residents. I know council is bullish on this, but I would encourage you to look at that time frame and revise.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;These things tend to work out better when you have the calmer music in the evenings,â&#x20AC;? noted Councilwoman Margaret Pillas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to have rap then, are you?â&#x20AC;? Meehan and Pillas also voiced the same concerns when another event approval came to council that night, a request to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wine Festival to incorporate a Wine in the Park event that would run concurrently with Northside Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alive festival on June 14-16, 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not comfortable opening Northside Park up to alcohol,â&#x20AC;? Pillas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree with Margaret, I think we need to protect Northside,â&#x20AC;? Meehan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a residential area and needs to stay family-oriented.â&#x20AC;? Meehan was also concerned that the Beach Bash would exclusively benefit a small number of leading north-end businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see there are three or four businesses that are really designed to be the core beneficiaries of this, almost like a private event, are they going to be contributing and returning on their end?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As all the supporters of the alliance want to make something like this happen, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working very hard to promote it for themselves as well,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman assured council.

code, restaurants may have an unenclosed dining area of up to the same square footage as their enclosed dining area, without providing any additional parking – the theory being that outside seating will not create a consistent parking burden since it is subject to the weather. But city code also stipulates that any wall higher than 42 inches makes a structure “enclosed,” thus needing its own parking Added to the mix is the fact that Galaxy is already parking-deficient. The current city standard for eateries is one space per every 100 square feet – yet the strip that houses Galaxy was built prior to this, and Galaxy has only 41 parking spaces despite being larger than 4,100 square feet. The property thus carries with it a grandfathered variance to this effect, but when Cebula went to acquire the permits to build Skye bar, it was stipulated that his outside area could not exceed 4,100 square feet, so as to not create any additional strain on the deficiency he already had. “The board put a restriction of 4,100 square feet on the outside dining so that it would not increase the severity of the exception,” explained Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith. “The critical issue here is that in order to avoid parking, you have to not be enclosed. Because of the height of the sound wall, it would disqualify the exemption they already had” Thus, 42 inches of glass could make Galaxy’s parking requirement jump exponentially. Such is the situation in Ocean City, where grandfathered zoning vari-

ances sometimes can be worth more than the properties themselves. “The question here is whether or not we have created a circumstance where this is not open, unenclosed dining,” said Galaxy lawyer Joe Moore. “The issue is parking, and what you’re doing is increasing the enclosure,” said BZA Chairman Al Harrison. “There are a lot of places around here that take, shall we say, ‘full advantage’ of the open-air policy. And then a few months later you might see some pull-down shades or an awning or whatever.”

Patching ones way through the requirements is almost a requirement in and of itself. At the same BZA meeting, Montego Bay homeowner Nils Edwards came before the board to ask for leniency in having built a bay window projecting over his driveway at a height that was 8.5 inches less than code. And at a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting last month, owners of De Lazy Lizard restaurant discovered that their expansion plans would only be possible if they purchased a vacant house on Philadelphia Avenue and knocked it

down to create a small off-site parking lot. “This is not intended to squeeze through a loophole,” Moore said. “If not for Mr. Esham [liquor board President Bill Esham] having a concern with noise, we would have every right to do it.” “It’ll still be subject to the weather [with the seven-foot walls] as much as it is now,” said Harrison, as the board approved Cebula’s request. “But I don’t want to see any more enclosure. Bamboo poles, thatched roofs, blue tarps strung up, whatever. None of it.”

Ocean City could take former trash hauler to court Continued from Page 35

ing Public Works tens of thousands of dollars in the red. “They [ECR] thought one thing about the contract; we thought another, and that’s when the lawyers will probably get involved,” Malone said. “We’ve tracked all our expenses and plan on recovering them. ECR had even gone so far, according to Malone, as to pull their equipment out of the 65th Street yard after hours. Knowing that maintenance employees started very early in the morning and were all gone by 4 p.m., ECR would remove their vehicles around 5. Malone confronted them one night when he worked late. “It was adversarial and I’m not real friendly when I’m angry,” he said. “We

didn’t appreciate what they did and when it got to the point where we started hauling the trash ourselves, they said, ‘It’s over.’” Compounding the problem is that the city is only allowed to store so much trash in town for so long. Because of environmental concerns about liquid trash runoff getting into the bay, the city’s permit from the state to collect waste stipulates that it may not let trash sit on the collection floor. Everything must be backed into trailers and taken to the mainland or may sit overnight in a waste storage shed that funnels leeching fluids into the city’s sewage treatment plant next door. The shed, however, only holds seven trailers. However, Malone said that on a peak day

the city has packed as many as 17 trailers, meaning most of what goes in must go out. But the nightmare of the last three weeks appears to be over. The city was able to negotiate a new contract with Covanta 4Recovery, the hauling arm of the Covanta Corporation, which runs the incinerator plant in Pennsylvania. Covanta’s own subcontractor, TAC Transit, has sent an impressive fleet of haulers to 65th Street. “They came in guns blazing; we were impressed,” said Public Works Director Hal Adkins. “They have done very well, the collection floor is clean as we speak and the building is locked up,” said a relieved Malone.

Ocean City Shark Tournament director Mark Sampson, right, reads aloud the shark release report from the Lucky One team on Sunday at the Ocean City Fishing Center dock. The group racked up the most release points, 28, for throwing back 13 sharks (12 spinner and one hammerhead). The team was awarded $1,575. They received an additional $480 in the Daily Release division for Saturday and Sunday and the team was also presented with a rod and reel for releasing the most sharks overall.

ROUGH SEAS HAMPER OC SHARK TOURNEY Offshore conditions force delay of start as 11 teams vie for money and honors LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Eleven boat captains and their teams braved extremely rough seas and windy conditions last weekend during the 32nd annual Ocean City Shark Tournament. Anglers were originally scheduled to fish two of three days, Thursday through Saturday, June 14-16, but because of poor conditions offshore, the tournament started a day later, on Friday, June 15, and ran through Sunday, June 17, in the hopes the ocean would calm a bit and the wind die down. Neither did. Seven boats registered last Wednesday, the original final day to sign up. A second registration day was added on Thursday, so captains could keep an eye on conditions and make a decision if they still wanted to participate. A total of 11 boats competed in the tournament, a drop from 2011 when 40 registered. Tournament director Mark Sampson said he expected a lower turnout because of the difficult conditions. “We got over our disappointment days before the tournament,” he said. “The silver lining was that everybody just seemed to make the best of it. The competitors who chose to be a part of, I think it was admirable. They knew that it was rough out there and that there wasn’t much prize money, but they did it because of

the competition.” No sharks were brought to the Ocean City Fishing Center scale in West Ocean City, but 44 were released (six mako, 21 spinner, 13 sandbar or dusky, two hammerhead and two tiger sharks). “I too am sorry that someone didn’t have the opportunity to bring back a shark to show the crowd and win some more money, but it seemed like everyone at least got something,” Sampson said. The Lucky One crew racked up the most release points, 28, for throwing back 13 sharks (12 spinner and one hammerhead). The team was awarded $1,575. They received an additional $480 in the Daily Release division for Saturday (seven spinner) and Sunday (five spinner, one hammerhead). The team was also presented with a rod and reel for releasing the most sharks overall. The Restless Lady team finished in second place with 26 points, for releasing eight dusky, three spinner and one mako. They won $720. Fifteen-year-old junior angler Sean Dewitt was awarded $500 for releasing two dusky sharks in the new youth division, sponsored by Reel Addiction Charters. The Nontypical crew earned thirdplace honors with 16 release points for returning four dusky, one tiger and one mako to the ocean. They pocketed $480 in the overall release points division and another $240 in the Daily Mako Release category for Sunday (one). The No Shop Talk team, the only group to fish last Friday, received $240 as the Daily Release division winner for that day. They threw back two dusky sharks.

Winning the Daily Mako Release division for last Saturday was the Keep Er Wet anglers. They released one, which earned them $240. The Dirty Oar team released the most makos overall (two) and were awarded $2,000, in the category sponsored by Fish Bomb. The Ocean City Shark Tournament was the second of two fishing competitions—the first was Mako Mania, held June 1-3—that allow anglers to accumulate points toward the “Ocean City Sharker of the Year” title. Keep Er Wet’s Dave Sumpter & Brian Leader earned the title and $800. The OC Shark Tournament also had divisions for bluefish, tuna and dolphin. The only fish brought to the scale during the entire competition were three bluefish, all caught aboard the Triple Threat. The fish weighed in at 1.5, .9 and .8 pounds. The trio were worth $1,320. A total of $8,595 was paid out to the tournament winners. This was the first year for the Outdoor Delmarva event, where a handful of exhibitors, including the National Aquarium Marine Animal Rescue Program, Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art and Maryland Coastal Bays, had booths set up in a tent in the fishing center parking lot from 1-7 p.m. last Friday and Saturday. Attendees could also walk through a 55foot-long model of a Sei whale, courtesy of the MARP. Sampson thought the free expo was a success. “It went very well, particularly for a first-year event,” he said. “We hope to do it again next year and make it bigger and better.”

The Salvation Army “Red Shield” Youth Football League is seeking players for its Berlin Dolphins team. The fall league is open to cadets (ages 7-10) and juniors (ages 11-13). Registration will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 23, at the Buckingham Elementary School field. For additional information, contact Donnie at 443-497-1577 or Ron at 410-641-0948.

Canyon Kick Off on tap for next weekend LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Teams will head offshore next weekend in search of marlin, sailfish, spearfish, swordfish, tuna and dolphin during the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 30th annual Canyon Kick Off Tournament, June 29-July 1. Hundreds of anglers went out fishing on 63 boats last year and $54,450 in prize money was paid out to the winners. The competition saw a slight increase in participation compared to 2010 when 60 boats registered and $45,725 was awarded to the top teams. Marlin Club President and tournament director Franky Pettolina thought the 2011 Canyon Kick Off was a success. “I was very pleased. It was a great tournament,” Pettolina said after the competition. “It was the best fishing in

tournament history. Great marlin fishing and good tuna fishing, too.” Typically, if a team releases two or three billfish, the group would most likely win the release division. Sixteen billfish were released during the 2010 tournament, the most ever for the event. In 2011, 37 whites and one blue marlin were released. Registration for the 2012 Canyon Kick Off will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 28, followed by a captains’ meeting at 8 p.m. at the Ocean City Marlin Club on Golf Course Road in West Ocean City. Anglers can fish two of three days, Friday, June 29, through Sunday, July 1. Catches will be weighed at Sunset Marina in West Ocean City, 5-7:30 p.m. daily. Spectators are invited to watch the weigh-ins. Entry into the tournament is free for Marlin Club boat members and $400

for non-members. Added entry level calcuttas, which cost $200, $300, $500 and $1,000 are offered in the meatfish (tuna and dolphin), bluefin tuna and billfish (blue and white marlin, sailfish, spearfish and swordfish) divisions. The billfish division is catch-and-release only. Anglers who reel in the three heaviest tuna and dolphin will also win prize money. “We hope to have a good tournament,” Pettolina said Tuesday. “Tuna fishing is great. It’s one of the best starts to the tunafishing season, and there’s definitely been some blue marlin around. They tail the tuna schools. More blue marlin have been caught earlier this year than before.” An awards banquet is set for July 2, at the Marlin Club. For more information, call 410-213-1613.

Tuna-ment fishing kicks off today, will continue to Sunday LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) The first day of competition for the 23rd annual Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association’s Tuna-Ment Tournament is today, Friday, and anglers will also head offshore Saturday and Sunday in search of tuna. While many fishing events up and down the coast saw a decrease in participation last year compared to 2010 events, the Tuna-Ment had five additional boats enter from the previous year. Thirty boats entered and $20,000 was paid out to the winners. “The tournament was well attended and the fishing couldn’t have been better,” said Dave Smith, executive director of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association after last year’s tournament. Smith manned the scale at Sunset Marina in West Ocean City during the 2011 competition. “I think the tournament was up because we take a more ‘laid-back’ approach. We want our anglers to enjoy their time in our tournaments and I think people recognize that,” he said. Smith said last week that he was hopeful the 2012 Tuna-ment would grow in participation again this year See BOATS on Page 43

Register for Marlin Club’s Small Boat tourney LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Area fishing tournaments are often dominated by large boats and anglers looking to reel in big prize money, but the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Small Boat Tournament is different. The competition, now in its 33rd year, is for boats 34 feet long and smaller. The Marlin Club started the event because most of the local tournaments were geared toward offshore and white marlin fishing and it was difficult for smaller boats to compete against larger vessels. The tournament began as a small boats competition, but it has grown into a family event. Cash prizes are offered, but the tournament is more about fun on the water with the family, rather than taking home large amounts of money. Approximately 150 participants went out fishing on 33 boats during the 2011 tournament, according to Director Bill Regan. Three-quarters of the anglers were children. A total of $10,990 in prize money was paid out to the winners. “It’s turned into a real family-oriented event that culminates with a crab feast on Sunday,” Regan said. “I think the tournament will be a little bigger this year because offshore fishing has been so good. I anticipate we’ll have about 200-250 anglers this year.” Registration for the 2012 tournament will take place today, Friday, at 6:30 p.m. at the Marlin Club, located on Golf Course Road in West Ocean City. A captains’ meeting will follow at 8 p.m. The competition is open to Marlin Club members and nonmembers. Participants will fish one of two days, June 23 or 24. The entry fee is $200 for offshore or inshore fishing. Five banquet tickets are included in the fee. Anglers have the option to pay $400 and fish both Saturday and Sunday, one day inshore and the other offshore. Ten banquet tickets are included with the two-day registration. The inshore division has categories for flounder, sea bass, tautog, bluefish, rockfish and shark. Offshore division categories in-

with the title of Captain of the Year up for grabs. Points are earned for participating in and weighing fish during the MSSA’s “Tournament Series,” which includes the Championship on the Chesapeake (May 4-6), Tuna-ment, Beach N’ Boat Flounder Tournament (Aug. 25) and Chesapeake Bay Fall Classic (Nov. 17-18). Tuna-ment is one of MSSA’s longest running fishing competitions and the only offshore event in the Tournament Series. Tuna is the main division for the tournament and all tuna species are eligible, except false albacore. From the reports Smith had read last week, he said tuna fishing was “hot.” Teams boating the first-, second- and third-heaviest tunas will be awarded prize money. There are also five optional addedentry skill level calcuttas, for the chance to win additional prize money for reeling in the largest tuna. Categories for dolphin and bluefish are available as well. Winner takes all in each division and will be determined by the heaviest total weight of three fish weighed. “Tuna are still around. The problem is the weather. We have had very few good weather days this year. That is the main concern right now,” Smith said Monday. Last weekend offshore conditions were so rough that only 11 boats participated in

Plateau in sight for consumers, study reveals

Shamrock names top May agents

LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer (June 22, 2012) Results of Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey last month indicate that the positive trends in consumer attitudes during the past 6 months appear to be reaching a plateau. Fannie Mae conducts a monthly attitudinal survey, which polls the adult general population in the United States to assess attitudes toward owing and renting a home, home purchase and rental prices, homeownership distress, household finance and overall confidence in the economy. Doug Duncan, vice president and chief economist of Fannie Mae was quoted as saying, “Current jobs data are reminiscent of the spring slowdown that continued into the summer months during the last two years. If this pattern continues, we do not expect to see any significant upturn in consumer sentiment during the summer and a meaningful housing recovery likely will be delayed once again.” Other Fannie Mae survey highlights: ■ On average, Americans expect home prices to increase by 1.4 percent over the next 12 months, up 0.5 percentage points since March 2012 and the highest value yet recorded. ■ The percentage of respondents who say it is a good time to buy increased by 1 percentage point to 72 percent. ■ On average, respondents expect home rental prices to increase by 4.1 percent over the next 12 months, a 0.5 percentage point increase versus last month. ■ At 32 percent, the percentage of respondents who would rent if they were going to move is unchanged, while 63 percent would buy. ■ Belief that the economy is on the right track hit an all-time high this month at 38 percent. ■ Fifteen percent of respondents say that their household income is significantly lower than it was 12 months ago, a record low.

RETIREMENT: NO WAY! The 83-year-old still works nightly, greeting Olive Tree diners LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Maria Poulos has worked in the restaurant business for 65 years and she has no plans to retire anytime soon. “I like what I do. I’d be bored just sitting around the house. I’ll work every day for as long as I’m able,” Poulos said Tuesday afternoon at The Olive Tree restaurant on 127th Street. She and her brother, Buddy Damiano, opened the north Ocean City restaurant on April Fool’s Day in 1989. “I just love the people. I’ve watched children grow up to become parents and grandparents. We have a lot of regular customers and some of the children call me ‘grandma.’” The Olive Tree diners can find the young 83-year-old at the restaurant nightly, welcoming them as they walk in the front door. She also counts money during the daytime. Working, she said, keeps her young. “She won’t take a day off. People come here to see her,” said her son, Greg, who now runs the restaurant. Born on Christmas Day in 1960, he started his career in the family business at the age of 12, doing whatever was needed, like washing dishes and cracking eggs. “It’s wonderful working with her.

preciate it all the time, more so now than ever.” Maria Poulos’ mother, Josie Damiano, lived in Baltimore when she heard about a business opportunity in Ocean City, an up-and-coming resort town. Damiano pawned her rings and with the $200 she received, she and her 18-year-old daughter headed for Ocean City in 1947. That year, they opened Josie and Maria’s, a 65-seat Italian restaurant in the Essex hotel on First Street and the Boardwalk. They lived in one of the hotel’s 26 rooms. All the residents shared a single bath. They operated in that location for two years before moving their restaurant to Caroline Street and the Boardwalk in the downstairs

of a rooming house. The restaurant also seated 65 guests. About two years later, they expanded the restaurant, raising the ceiling and adding seating for approximately 20 more diners. Maria married businessman Gus Poulos in 1952. Her mother ran the Caroline Street establishment for 35 years. When Poulos’ brother came home from the service, he opened a restaurant on Sixth Street and the Boardwalk. He had a successful summer and suggested to his mother and sister that they look for a location farther north. In 1955, with financial help from their mother, she and her brother bought an See AT 83 on Page 46

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Head baker Danielle Barry uses her Irish family recipes, passed down from generations, to create many of the baked goods available at OC Café, located on the corner of Fourth Street and the Boardwalk. But she also has a few secrets of her own. “I’ve been baking all my life. I just love it. It’s my passion,” said the 20-year-old, who came to Ocean City from Ireland with about a dozen other girls to work for the summer. It is her first time in the resort. In September, the medical student will start her second year at University College Cork, in Ireland. “Fresh baked goods make such a difference,” said Barry, who has been baking for about 10 years. As a little girl, she would assist her mother in the kitchen and she also worked for her aunt and uncle, who owned several bakeries in Ireland. One of Barry’s specialties is the Cadbury chocolate and Genoise sponge cake with a strawberry and cream center. Other featured items include shortbread, raspberry tarts, apple pie, popovers and cupcakes. And people love the classic New York cheesecake, Barry said. Cadbury chocolate is also used when making the chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Barry said Cadbury chocolate is a bit more expensive, but the quality is top notch.

The orange and lime green paint, along with track and pendant lighting, tables and chairs made of Indonesian teak wood, leather couches and booths give the café a warm, cozy feel. Free Wi-Fi is available. A flat screen television is hung on the back wall sur-

rounded by a variety of books for customers to read. There are also games to play. Fox plans to offer live music on the weekends. She would also like to feature local artists’ work and host art shows. Candace Brush currently has some of her paintings and painted glassware on display and for sale. Fox said business has picked up since she opened and she has had a number of repeat customers. “Some families have come in at the beginning of their vacation and then they come back daily,” she said. OC Café is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Artists interested in displaying their work at the café should call 443-6642708.

old gambling hall and casino on 17th Street, where CVS is now located. They transformed the space into a second Josie and Maria’s restaurant. The fine-dining restaurant accommodated close to 300 guests and also featured live entertainment. It remained a fine-dining eatery until the early 1960s, when they changed the name to J&M Cafeteria and offered breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cafeteria was in business until 1978, when they turned the

space into a disco club called the Electric Circus. It was a disco club for only one year before becoming a rock ‘n’ roll and heavy metal nightclub. They operated the club until 1989. The siblings wanted to get back into the restaurant business, so in 1986 they opened the first Olive Tree on 17th Street, next to the club. The nearly 300seat restaurant was so busy each night that they decided to expand north. On April 1, 1989, they opened a second Olive Tree on 127th Street. The up-

town restaurant originally sat 150 diners. About three years after opening, they expanded, adding seating for an additional 100 guests and also built a bar. In 2002, the 17th Street restaurant closed and the property was sold to CVS. After they sold the restaurant, Poulos’ brother and his wife, Donna, moved to Florida. She visits them occasionally —without, of course, taking too much time off from working at The Olive Tree.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 22, 2012) Ocean City is a visually attractive, scenic place, and artists will have the opportunity to reproduce the images they see on paper or canvas this weekend during the second annual plein air event, presented by the Art League of Ocean City. “Plein air” is a French expression, meaning “in the open air,” particularly used to describe the art of painting outdoors. As of Monday, approximately 30 artists from across the peninsula had registered to participate in the plein air event. Artists, who must be 18 or older, may also register during check-in today, Friday, at 8:30 a.m. at the Art League of Ocean City’s temporary headquarters, the former Susquehanna Bank building on 94th Street. The cost is $25. Artists may paint anything and anywhere in Ocean City, including the Boardwalk, inlet, bayside and oceanside locations all day Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday. The West Ocean City commercial fishing harbor is an added location this year for artists to paint. “There were about a halfdozen artists who specifically wanted to paint [at the commercial harbor] last year,” said Paige Ruby, chairwoman of the plein air event and ALOC first vice president. “Hopefully, we’ll have a nice selection of marine scenes this year.” Visitors to the resort can watch the artists at work as they set up their easels around town and paint.

Well, there’s still time to qualify for Fish Tales Bar & Grill’s fifth annual Independence Day “Top Dog” hot dog-eating contest. Anyone 18 and older who is interested in competing in the July 4 event may stop by the 22nd Street bayside bar and restaurant at anytime during the day to speedily consume five deli-style hot dogs and buns. A Fish Tales representative will time each participant, and the 15 people with the fastest times will move on to the finals, scheduled to take place Wednesday, July 4, at 1 p.m. Contestants have until July 3 to qualify. The cost to take part in the qualifier is $5, which will go toward the prize money pot. “It was more of a nonprofessional, amateur contest last year than the year before when professional competitive eaters won,” said Brandon Hemp, Fish

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Shrimp salad delights eyes, excites palate DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (June 22, 2012) Scrumptious shrimp salad is the subject of the day. This particular seafood salad not only delights the eye, but excites the palate. The tasty crustacean has replaced canned tuna as the most popular seafood in America. Let us explore the popular Caridea that lives in the sea. All shrimp are not the same; therefore, specifics are a significant factor. Each species of shrimp has its own characteristics. The flavor and texture of each type of shrimp are influenced by the waters they come from and what they eat. The result: cooking time should be increased slightly. Finessing through the realm of subtleties ensure perfection. The next time you purchase shrimp, take a closer look at the label and you will notice a set of numbers divided by a slash. This number, called the count, tells you the size of the shrimp. The count refers to the number of individual shrimp in one pound. So if the label reads 21/25, you can expect to get 21 to 25 shrimp. Avoid shrimp that has been peeled and deveined before freezing. There is a good chance the flavor and texture has been compromised. Never defrost any type of shellfish at room temperature or the microwave. Defrost shrimp either in the refrigerator or ice-cold water. Whether shrimp should be deveined is really a question of aesthetics. Most chefs will not devein medium-sized or smaller shrimps, but deveining is highly suggested for anything larger. The black “vein” that runs along the back of the shrimp is actually its digestive tract. These veins are edible, but if eaten they can taste gritty and dirty, particuSee SHRIMP on Page 64

Designated beaches set in place to keep OC surfers,swimmers safe ON GUARD

OCBP rotates two surfing beaches daily KRISTIN JOSON â&#x2013;  Contributing Writer (June 22, 2012) Due to large beach crowds from Memorial Day to Labor Day, surfing is only permitted in designated areas during the beach patrolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating hours of 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Seven days a week, there are two rotating surfing beaches. And, on weekdays there is also a third surfing beach set up in the inlet area. No activity other than surfing is allowed in the surfing beach area. The two rotating surfing beaches move two blocks south each day. Based on the current rotation, a specific street block would not have the surfing beach on the same date for over 20 years. So if your family stays on 10th Street the second week in July every year, and the surfing beach were to be on 10th street this year during that week, it would not happen again for the next 20 years. The third surfing beach operates Monday through Friday and is always in the same location, starting at the south rock jetty at

the end of Ocean City and extending 200 yards north. This area was chosen because it is usually not crowded on weekdays. Furthermore, it is not safe to swim close to a rock jetty. On certain days when inclement weather affects Ocean City, beach patrol captain may allow surfing. This decision is made daily with the input of supervisors on the beach. If there are low numbers of people on the beach, and the weather is poor and not predicted to improve, the surfing ordinance may be modified. There are also other factors taken into consideration when making this decision. On days of inclement weather, you can ask any surf rescue technician on the beach if the surfing ordinance has been modified, or call beach patrol headquarters at 410-289-7556. Local surf shops may also know when the surfing ordinance has been modified. Even during these conditions, swimmers always have the right of way and surfers must be at least 50 yards away from any swimmers and wear a leash at all times (Ocean City ordinance).

Surfing beach areas are marked by smaller yellow stands on the particular block designated, one at the north end of the block and the other at the south end. Members of the beach patrol called surf beach facilitators are assigned to work at the surfing beaches. The surf beach facilitator makes sure the operation of the surf beach runs smoothly. They make sure surfers stay within the designated area, while also educating the public and making sure they do not swim in the surf area. Surf beach facilitators begin their workday at 9 a.m., an hour earlier than the rest of the patrol. During that time, they are talking to beach patrons who are not planning to surf, making sure they understand the surfing beach operation. The basic concept behind the surfingbeach is safety. Keeping surfers separate from swimmers and waders is a proactive way to keep everyone safe and happy with the way they choose to enjoy the ocean. Many beach communities throughout the country employ similar rules. To view the daily surfing beach rotation, visit any local surf shop or the beach patrol Web site at www.ococean. com/ocbp.

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be prepared to face some challenges stirred up by an envious colleague. Your best defense is the Arian’s innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and you’ll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But don’t be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat “crabby,” as you fuss over plans that don’t seem to work out. Maybe you’re trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. It’s trying to tell you to delay making a decision until you’re sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didn’t do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before it’s ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine familycourt judge or social worker.

KNERR EARNS TRIP TO WASHINGTON WORKSHOPS

AGH RECEIVES DONATION FROM WORCESTER PREP STUDENTS Atlantic General Hospital is again the recipient of the proceeds from Worcester Preparatory School’s second-grade bread sale. Each year, the second-grade classes at Worcester Prep work on a special learning and community service project, “Kids Bread.” Students learn about math, science, social studies, writing, art and marketing during the project. During the sale, the students sold slices of wheat bread, white bread, cinnamon bread and raisin bread for 25 cents. This year, the students donated $435.35 to the hospital. Pictured, in first row from left, are Worcester Prep students Emma Marshall, Sydney Stebenne, Henry Hershey and Carson Cebula; and in back row, Todd Hershey, Atlantic General Hospital Foundation Board Chairman; Worcester Prep teachers Angie Bunting and Jenny Frostrom; and Michael Franklin, AGH president and CEO.

Casey Knerr of Berlin, center, a rising senior at Worcester Prep, was honored by the Colonial Dames for her writing. As a winner of the Colonial Dames history award, she will receive an all-expense paid trip to the Washington Workshops, where she will spend a week learning about the workings of our government. Knerr interns at the Bayside Gazette and was the 2012 winner of the Headmaster’s Academic Award for having the highest Academic Average in Grades 9-11. Pictured with Knerr are Marian Chambers, education representative for the Colonial Dames, left, and Nancy Decker, head of Worcester Prep Upper School.

NICE SHOT! Hannah Fauntleroy, an eighth-grader at Stephen Decatur Middle School, practices close-up photography for her digital media class. Students in the class learn advanced techniques in photography, Web creation, presentations and more.

DONATION Stephen Decatur’s Jr. Red Cross Club, otherwise known as the Decatur Lifesavers, ended the year with check presentations to John Culp, director of the Lower Shore Chapter of the American Red Cross. A $500 check was donated to the chapter to help replenish Disaster Relief funds and a $300 check was presented to the Red Cross Measles Initiative, which is an international program to help eradicate measles. The Decatur Lifesavers accomplished their four main goals during the 2011-12 club year. These goals included planning and implementing a local outreach, a national outreach and an international outreach and completing CPR/AED and First Aid certifica-tion. Above, from left, Club Advisor Ryan Cowder, Culp, Lifesavers Club President Connor Neville and Stephen Decatur High School Principal Lou Taylor.

(June 22, 2012) Ice skaters representing the Baltimore-based company, “The Next Ice Age,” will perform to music by Donna Summer and the Bee Gees during their 70-night summer program at the Carousel Hotel on 118th Street in Ocean City. “It’s a tribute to a few recording artist who’ve passed away. Donna Summer passed away recently and there’s only one [original] Bee Gee left now. They had a big impact on my life growing up,” said Tim Murphy, who created the company with Nathan Birch. The show will open with Summer’s “Once Upon a Time” and close with her song, “Happily Ever After.” The performers will also skate to Summer’s “I Feel Love.” “The opening act is five minutes of fast, demanding skating. About 70 percent of the show is fast and upbeat, with some ballads added in,” Murphy said. “It’s all feel-good stuff. The show is designed to lighten people’s spirits.” Some of the featured Bee Gees’ songs include “You Should Be Dancing,” “I Started a Joke,” “Run to Me” and “Too Much Heaven.” The costumes have again been designed by former “The Next Ice Age” skater and New York Fashion Institute of Technology alumnus, Alicia Jackson. The girls will wear two costumes for the 11th season skating at the Carousel. The show, which kicked off June 13, features five performers — veterans Nicole Turchi, 18, of Silver Spring, Md., Megan Marschall, 20, of Newark, Del., Jenna Beairsto, 20, of Vail, Colo., and Hope Alexander, 23, Wilmington, Del.; and newcomer Erika Choi Smith, 23, Wilmington, Del. “This is my second summer skating with the company and I’m so glad to be back,” Turchi said. “It’s a treat to be able to perform every night for such a lively audience. All the girls I work with are incredibly talented and it’s such a privilege to skate with them every single day.” The 30-minute shows can be enjoyed by both children and adults, Murphy said. They are presented nightly at 6:30 p.m., and will continue through Aug. 21. Admission is free. Children are invited to meet the skaters after the show for photographs and autographs. To commemorate the 10th anniversary last year, The Next Ice Age presented a greatest hits show as skaters performed crowd favorites from the past decade. “This is the first brand new show we’ve done in two years now and everyone’s excited,” Murphy said of the 2012 performances. Rinkside dining is available. To make reservations, call 410-524-1000.

Play It Safe volunteers work hard to keep new grads entertained SENIOR SLANT

Free activities, bus passes available to visiting teens IRISH KEMP ■ Contributing Writer (June 22, 2012) One down, only 60plus more days to go. Hang in there, folks. Being caretakers for the nation’s vacationers is a tough job, but somebody has to do it. When things get tough, the tough get going. The Play It Safe organization’s work was cut out for them, thanks to a boatload of rainy days. The organization wants to thank the graduates for finding their way to the numerous daytime and nighttime off-thebeach, activities. Especially tough to do on that oh so rare perfect beach day. Their parents should take pride in how polite, personable, innovative and outgoing this year’s grads were to the Play It Safe volunteers. Many vowed to return. Making their stay at the beach a safe and memorable, fun experience is what it’s all about. Mission accomplished, folks. I’ve been so flighty all my life that even my kids won’t know when I really flip out. Unbelievable, I know, but true — I actually lost a few days in May. My shrink found Millie Weinberg’s, Cathy Kahn’s and Helen Subkowiak’s birthdays under his couch last week. Many happy returns, kids. I know Doc wasn’t supposed to tell me, but St. Anthony is one of his clients. It seems as tho’ our generation of ladies are driving the old guy,crazy, including a

mega number of “publics.” Congratulations to June birthday kids, Jack Whitmer, Rose Ward, Gordon Moore, Pat Durkin, Howard Kline, Joi Pairo, Lois McGregor, Dennis Roarty and Dottie Grimes, Congratulation, also, to Shawn Smith for doing a great job. Adhering to beach tradition of 30 days of celebrating every auspicious occasion, Norman and Roberta Blades have been spotted all over town, celebrating an unbelievable 59th anniversary. Congratulations to Neil and Kathy Foote. I’m sure this cute little couple will squeeze a little fun time between their bodaciously humongous volunteer stints to go out and celebrate their golden anniversary on June 23. Also out making the golden years a pleasant experience on Delmarva for themselves and others, anniversary celebrators John and Joan Sauer (64), Tom and Mary Cetola (56), and our born in Scotland friends, Nick and Pam Galvin (60). My list of folks who have made our oceanfront town such a awesome retirement haven for the Kemps — the likes of volunteers Bill Taylor, Marlyn Pietruszka, the Carozzas, Jim and Martha Stone, the Staleys, Rita Salerno, Joan DeMarco and the Mulhollands — is un-ending. Locals can add one more name to our list of friends in high places. Sorely missed by all of us will be Dubby Eby’s Mr. Wonderful. Keep Dubby and family in your prayers. C U in OC Today!

OC Beautification Committee seeks nominees for annual awards (June 22, 2012) The Ocean City Beautification Committee is seeking nominations in eight categories in which someone can win a 2012 Beauty Spot Award, including residential, condominium, retail, hotel, motel, commercial, restaurant and Boardwalk. Only nominated properties will be judged. Help is needed by the Beautification Committee in finding those special properties that are evidence of civic pride and community beauty. A property can be

nominated by anyone — the resident or owner of a residence or business, a relative, neighbor, friend, customer or just a passerby. Once all nominations are in, the Beautification Committee will travel around town to view all the nominated properties. Judging is based on plants, flowers, trees, shrubbery, grasses, design, layout, etc. that complement the property. 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. Also, those who make an effort to beautify unattractive areas such as Dumpsters and electric boxes can be recognized. The Mayor and City Council will present the winners with their awards in the fall. To nominate a property, call Donna Greenwood, chairwoman, at 410-2897060 or mail nominations to OCBC, De-

partment of Recreation and Parks, 200 125th St., Ocean City, MD 21842 or email to ocbeautification@hotmail.com before the July 5 deadline. Be sure to include the property owner’s name, correct street address and a contact phone number, as well as your name with a phone number so that the location and information can be verified. For more information, visit the Beautification Committee’s Web site at www.oceancitymd.gov/bc.

Shrimp salad is refreshing option for steamy,sultry days of summer FOOD FOR THOUGHT Continued from Page 49

larly with larger shrimp. If one is going to grill shrimp, it is advisable to brine first. Stir 1/8 cup of kosher salt and 1/8 cup of sugar into 1 cup boiling water. Add the dissolved mixture into a bowl of ice. Place raw shrimp into the bowl and refrigerate 40 to 60 minutes. Rinse well and continue with the recipe. Overcooking shrimp is the most common mistake for the novice chef. Shrimp should be cooked quickly in order to preserve their sweet, delicate flavors. As soon as the flesh turns opaque, remove from the heat source. Remember, the shrimp will continue to cook for several minutes as it cools unless the shrimp is submerged in ice-cold water. Boiling is probably the most common method of cooking shrimp, particularly

the smaller ones. Place a pound of shrimp in a quart of rapidly boiling water with 3 tablespoons of salt. Reduce the heat and cook until done. Jumbo shrimp take about 7 to 8 minutes, large shrimp take about 5 to 7 minutes, and medium shrimp take about 3 to 4 minutes. A reminder of shrimp etiquette: If one orders a shrimp cocktail in a restaurant, an oyster fork should be provided and used. If large shrimp are served on a platter with no oyster fork, pick up the shrimp by the tail and eat it in one bite if it is not too large. Otherwise, eat it in two bites. Deep-fried shrimp is meant to be eaten with the fingers. If eating shrimp on a skewer, slide the shrimp off onto a plate. Skewered shrimp should never be eaten like a corn dog. When eating Oriental dishes that include shrimp, remove the tail with a fork and set it to the side of your plate or on a separate “discard dish.”

Shrimp salad is a refreshing option during the steamy, sultry days of summer. A heaping mound of shrimp salad served in a baby pineapple creates a stunning presentation. The combination of sweet pineapple and salty Old Bay adds another dimension to the shrimp salad. The choice is yours. Bon Appetit! Shrimp Salad 1 lemon, quartered 2 pounds large shrimp (leave the shrimp whole as opposed to chopping in small pieces) 1 cup Hellman’s mayonnaise 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon white vinegar 1/2 cup minced sweet onion 1 1/2 cups chopped celery few pinches Old Bay seasoning 3 baby pineapples kosher salt, fresh ground pepper to taste

1. Bring a large pot of salted water along with the lemon to a boil. Add shrimp and reduce heat to medium. As soon as the shrimp turn opaque, remove with slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water. Allow to cool, peel, and devein the shrimp. 2. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and Old Bay seasoning. 3. Combine shrimp, onion, celery, and mayonnaise mixture. Refrigerate for several hours before serving. 4. Cut pineapple in half lengthwise. Scoop out a small amount of the pineapple. Place a generous portion of shrimp salad in the center of the pineapple and serve immediately. Serves 6 Secret Ingredient: Details. “Caress the detail, the divine detail” … Vladimir Nabokov.

Search continues for official anthem of summer 2012 (June 22, 2012) Songwriters have just over a week to submit their entries to the official Song of the Summer contest, sponsored by the town of Ocean City. Original compositions will be accepted online at www.facebook.com/OceanCity through July 2. “Everyone associates certain songs with memories — especially when it comes to the beach and vacations,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “We want to have an official Ocean City anthem for summer 2012 and thought our talented fans would be the best composers.” Those who wish to enter the contest must write an original song, record it and submit it via the official Ocean City Facebook page. Contest entries must be completely original composition (both music and lyrics), no longer than three minutes in length, must be submitted by an individual, not a group, and cannot mention any specific business in Ocean City. After the submission period closes, contest administrators will choose the top three songs and allow the public to vote for the winner on the Facebook page. Entries must be submitted by July 2. The contest winner will win the opportunity to have the song produced and recorded in Ocean City as well as perform the song at Sunfest 2012. The song will also be featured as an Ocean City sponsored free download on the iTunes store. For more information, visit http://ococean.com/songofsummer.

Here, at the beach patrol, our No. 1 priority is your safety, so please keep our slogan in mind and, “Keep your feet in the sand, until the lifeguard’s in the stand!” This simple tip could save a life … yours! n Captain’s Note: Occasionally during each summer, special event permits will be issued by the mayor and City Council to hold a surfing event at a section of beach other than the rotating surfing area. These events are usually surfing contests and are attended by hundreds of spectators and competitors and are enjoyable to watch. During these events, swimming and wading is prohibited for your safety and the beach patrol will be on the beach making sure the event goes smoothly. Although this may cause you to walk half a block to enter the water, remember that surfing is important to the whole beach experience and although it may tie up a few blocks, swimmers still have more than 150 blocks to enjoy.

Artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;work available during â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wet paintâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sale Sun.on Somerset St. Continued from Page 49

a few places in mind to paint, including a spot near BJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Water at 75th Street. She would also like to paint the dunes and an ocean scene, she said. Ruby plans to use both watercolor and acrylics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Plein air painting] is a challenge, but for a lot of artists, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way they paint,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do plein air occasionally.â&#x20AC;? ALOC President Rina Thaler, who works in watercolors and acrylics, said she loves to paint outdoors. She plans to paint bayside, on the Boardwalk and at the West Ocean City harbor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love painting plein air because you get the best shadows and light,â&#x20AC;? Thaler said. The Art League has again partnered with the Ocean City Development Corporation for the painting extravaganza, and the organization will be providing the $1,750 in prize money to be awarded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent event for the downtown Ocean City area,â&#x20AC;? said Glenn Irwin, OCDC executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see artists paint Ocean City. Last year, artists were scattered all over the

Berlin artist Helen Hammerman uses pastels to capture the scenery at Northside Park on 125th Street last year during the Art League of Ocean Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plein air event.

downtown area. I think the prize money will help grow the event into a much bigger event.â&#x20AC;? After the painting session on Sunday, artists will take their finished pieces to the Somerset Street Plaza in downtown Ocean City for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;wet paintâ&#x20AC;? sale and exhibit from 5-8 p.m. There, artist Laura Era, co-owner of Troika Gallery in Easton, will judge the artwork. The firstplace winner will receive $1,000. The

second-place prize is $500 and $250 will go to the third-place artist. Honorable mentions winners will take home $25 gift certificates to La Hacienda restaurant. An â&#x20AC;&#x153;Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choiceâ&#x20AC;? award has been added this year. The winner will receive $100. Bryan Russo will provide the musical entertainment on the plaza. A new element of the plein air event is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quick Drawâ&#x20AC;? contest, set for Saturday from 2-4 p.m. at Northside Park on 125th Street. The cost to participate is $10. Artists will set up their canvases around the bridge and lagoon and begin painting or drawing at 2 p.m. The competition will end at 4 p.m. The Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association has signed on as a sponsor this year, donating the prize money for the Quick Draw contest. The Quick Draw awards are $100 for first place, $75 for second and $50 for third. Honorable Mention prize is a $25 La Hacienda gift certificate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last couple of years, there has been a connection between arts and tourism, especially on the state tourism level,â&#x20AC;? said Susan Jones, executive direc-

tor of the OCHMRA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Events have clearly proven to bring visitors to town. So, couple a new event with a new Art League facility, perhaps we can grow this segment of business for Ocean City.â&#x20AC;? The judge for the Quick Draw event will be Brad Hudson, an artist/instructor at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The artwork created during the plein air event will also be on display and for sale throughout the month of August in the Art League building. The opening reception will be held on Friday, Aug. 3. The Art League had offered plein air events on a smaller scale before, but last year was the first time prizes were presented. Thirty-five artists participated in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went great last year. We had a very good response,â&#x20AC;? Ruby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of paintings were sold on Somerset Street. The paintings were on display in August at the Art League and a lot of them were sold from that show.â&#x20AC;?
