Are crosswalks


ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer


As State Highway Administration lays new walkways, police find common sense difficult to enforce


State Highway Administration workers install a new brick-patterned thermoplastic crosswalk at Coastal Highway and Dolphin Avenue, a design SHA engineers hope will make crossings more visible to pedestrians.

ollowing an alarming number of pedestrian accidents in the first month of the summer season, the State Highway Administration has been making crosswalk improvements at several key points along Coastal Highway. But despite changes in infrastructure, the Ocean City Police Department says it is running up against a lack of any legal ground for preventative enforcement. Since May 28, at least eight pedestrians have been struck by vehicles, two of them fatally,as they have attempted to cross the street in Ocean City. In the majority of cases, the victims were either not in a crosswalk, or crossing against the signal, following an alarming trend of vacationers running across Coastal Highway mid-block, often from the raised brick median where drivers do not expect then to be. Matthew Jude Cheswick, 22, a Towson University student from Cooksville, was killed May 28 while standing in the bus lane at 54th Street. He was struck by a drunk driver, Diogo Miller Facchini, who fled the scene but was later apprehended. A week later, on June 4, Samantha Sweitzer, 15, an Allegany High School student from LaVale, was killed while attempting to cross Philadelphia Avenue at 21st Street. She reportedly was not in the crosswalk and going against traffic. And in the most recent incident, June 21, a 19-year-old woman from Glen Burnie was hit while attempting to cross from the west side to the east side of Baltimore Avenue, roughly 20 feet north of the 2nd Street intersection. Her injuries were not life-threatening, although police reported that she was being treated for abrasions and knocked-out teeth. In response, the State Highway Administration has been installing brickpatterned crosswalks at high-risk intersections, according to Ken Cimino, assistant district engineer for SHA District 1, which covers Dorchester, Wicomico, Somerset, and Worcester counties. “We’ve identified several half-mile corridors that are high risk, using a three-year average of pedestrian accidents from 2008, 2009, and 2010,” Cimino said. “You can’t force them [pedestrians], but you can encourage them to move to the marked crossing.” See STATE on Page 14


The Sea Watch condominium has become the most recent site of contamination with Legionella — the waterborne bacteria that causes Legionnaire’s disease.

Legionella bacteria discovered in water at North OC condo ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) Legionella — the bacteria that causes the form of pneumonia known as Legionnaire’s Disease — continues to haunt the resort, as a North Ocean City condo has recently tested positive for the bacteria. Meanwhile, the multiparty suit relating to last fall’s contamination at Plim Plaza was recently moved from Baltimore City to Worcester County’s court in Snow Hill. According to Worcester County Health Department Nursing Manager for Communicable Disease Debra Stevens, the Sea Watch condo at 11500 Coastal Highway was tested recently after a hospital elsewhere in the country reported a case of Legionnaire’s in a patient who said they vacationed in the area during the time in which they would’ve contracted the bacteria. “There’s a system in place to report those cases, and the department does an investigation with the idea of trying to prevent anyone else from getting sick,” Stevens said. “When a person has traveled, that is also reported. We were able to identify that the patient, in the late spring during the time they would’ve gotten sick, stayed at the Sea Watch. We had also been notified of a previous possibility in the fall, and when you have two or more cases with a common experience, that See SEA WATCH on Page 29

Approximately 8,600 teens participate in free activities this June LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 29, 2012) More than 8,600 teens took part in the 2012 Play It Safe, a program that provides high school graduates with organized, alcohol- and drug-free activities during the first three weeks of June. Donna Greenwood, chairwoman of the Ocean City Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Committee and Play It Safe co-organizer, said the 23rd annual program, offered May 31 to June 19, was a hit with everyone involved. “It went really well. Everything just seemed to fall into place,” she said. Added Lois Twilley, community health educator for the Worcester County Health Department in Snow Hill and Play It Safe coordinator, “As usual, the participants seemed very appreciative and they enjoyed the events.” This year, 8,620 graduates from 18 states participated in Play It Safe events, a decrease from 2011 when 11,744 teens took part in the free activities. Volleyball on the beach and karaoke, a combined activity that typically draws several hundred graduates, was cancelled on June 12, during the second week of the program because of rain. The week before, nearly 500 teens participated. Splash Mountain Water Park at Jolly Roger was closed to Play It Safe participants on June 7.

Sarandon movie, ‘Ping Pong Summer,’ possibly filmed in resort Movie a coming of age tale about boy obsessed with table tennis and hip-hop ZACK HOOPES ■Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) A reception was scheduled to be held Thursday evening for city officials and business owners regarding the possibility that the city would need to provide funding in order for the upcoming Susan Sarandon movie, “Ping Pong Summer,� to be filmed entirely in Ocean City.

Route 50 bridge span schedule to change on July 4 (June 29, 2012) Area boaters should note that on the evening of July 4, the span of the Route 50 bridge will remain closed to marine traffic at the usually scheduled 9:55 p.m. and 10:25 p.m. opening times. The Route 50 bridge will open for boaters at 10:55 p.m. on the evening of July 4.

Last week, producer George Rush sent an e-mail to the mayor and City Council stating that he was the lead producer of the project and had been working for some time with the “local champion� of the film, Ruth Waters of the Harrison Group, on shooting the movie entirely onlocation in Ocean City. As previously reported by several entertainment Web sites, 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. Written and to be directed by Michael Tully, Rush said that the film had also recruited James Nesbitt, Amy Sedaris and Judah Friedlander as key actors, and that filming was planned to begin in Ocean City in mid-September. However, according to Rush, the Maryland Film Office rebate that the producers had applied for did not come up during the recent budget snarl in Annapolis. The rebate would have refunded 25 percent of all in-state costs, which Rush estimated to be $1.2 million of the film’s overall $1.5 million budget, leaving a hole of roughly $300,000. Rush proposed that the city help bridge the gap, either with an outright grant or an equity investment. Although any direct return to local business would be difficult to gauge, Rush stressed that the film “is a postcard of Ocean City that will get out there in the world in a very meaningful and positive way.

“With the cast we have attached, we are virtually assured of a robust international distribution,� he continued. The film is being done independently, funded by a group of private investors and currently unattached to any studio or distributor. Rush also noted that interior scenes could be shot in studios outside of Maryland if funding was ultimately unavailable. In a reply, Councilman Joe Hall requested that the city’s marketing agency, MGH, look into the potential investment. “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.� City Tourism Director Donna Abbott said this week that she was looking into the possible contribution, but that the potential benefits would be difficult to gauge. “I’m going to guess that it’s going to be very difficult to know what the exact value would be in that kind of investment for marketing purposes,� she said. “You don’t know what the exposure would be in the long term, so I don’t know that you can put a price tag on it.� Abbott noted that the idea of an equity investment, such as a film partnership, is somewhat unprecedented on the municipal level. “Is it even something that would be considered a marketing initiative?� she asked. “The dollars we have are for destination marketing, based on the city ordi-

nance that a portion of the room tax is to be used for that. Is investing in a film a matter of marketing? It’s a big question.� The 1986 romance, “Violets are Blue,� with Kevin Kline and Sissy Spacek, was filmed in Ocean City, but Abbott said she didn’t believe the city had a direct hand in funding the movie. “To the best of my knowledge, we have never invested in a film before, other than in-kind services for police or traffic or public works,� she said. The same goes for nearby Berlin, where the Julia Roberts/Richard Gere romance, “Runaway Bride,� was shot in 1998. Berlin did not directly fund the film, but at the time the Baltimore Sun estimated that the three weeks of filming saw $1 million pumped into the local economy. Rush estimated that Ping-Pong Summer would probably put around $300,000 into local business revenue during its planned six-week shoot. “It sounds like a great project, but I don’t know if we’re talking apples to apples here,� Abbott said. Waters pointed to a 2010 study by the Sage Policy Group that was supportive of film subsidies in Maryland. Although the study points mostly to statewide benefits, it does note that Talbot County reported a $7.5 million impact since the 2005 and 2006 films, “Wedding Crashers� and “Failure to Launch� were partially filmed there. Waters said the benefit to Ocean City’s reputation, while hard to quantify, should be clear. “We’re talking about having Susan Sarandon on the Boardwalk,� she said.

New Ocean City manager has high hopes and lofty ambitions ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) New City Manager David Recor has arrived in town with high hopes and lofty ambitions, all of which he aims to fulfill — just as soon as he can get his grandmother’s Christmas decorations out of his garage. “She must have every ornament and Santa doodad made in the last 60 David Recor years,” he said. “It’s all going back to Onancock, (Va.), every box. I have to be able to get to my tools and tackle.” The former city manager of Fort Pierce, Fla., Recor had to do some considerable downsizing to come to Ocean City. “The place we got here is a lot smaller

than what we had in Florida,” he said. “I’ve been putting a lot of stuff on Craigslist.” “In Florida, our house was always the hub,” he said. “I did a lot of the cooking, too. Between teammates, teachers, boyfriends — it wasn’t uncommon for me to be making dinner for 10.” But Recor’s family has now downsized as well. The two eldest of his four daughters, ages 22 and 21, are staying in Florida for the time being to finish school. And his long-term foreign exchange student from China recently returned home, leaving the household in Ocean City with just Recor, his wife, and their two youngest daughters, ages 12 and 14. Not that this has been alienating for Recor — the Eastern Shore has always been his home, having been born and raised in Onancock, about 70 miles south of Ocean City. Recor still has family there, including his grandmother, although for many years

she has spent most of her time during the summers and holidays at Recor’s fortunately spacious Florida home, where she would often bring – and not take back – various decorative family keepsakes. “I’m a big believer in everything happening for a reason,” Recor said. “Timing wise, it just all fell into place for me to come back here now.” Though if half the impetus was familial, the other half was probably even more out of Recor’s control. In October, Ocean City’s previous city manager of 22 years, Denis Dare, was dismissed by a 4-3 vote of council, with the majority members citing his reluctance and interference in carrying out initiatives that would scale back city government. At the time, the city was already feeling the squeeze of the economic downturn, and although many signs point to the vacation market coming back, the city also had to face the reality this year of having its property values reassessed for the first time since 2008. The subsequent dive in the town’s taxable property base, which accounts for roughly 65 percent of its income, will only get worse over the next three years as new values are phased in. And no one can say for sure that 2014 will see a resurgence of value. None of this is alien to Recor. Fort Pierce took the same hit, which Recor said resulted in a 25 percent staff reduction since 2008, down from around 480 employees to less than 350, mainly in the city’s core de-

partments of public works and police. But Recor comes across as un-phased by the downturn. His signature program, and the one which he is most excited about implementing in Ocean City, was Fort Pierce’s Strategic Development Initiative, designed to keep the city on track and committed to its stated goals even during a time of cutbacks. “It’s a matter of identifying both problems and progress,” Recor said. “Let me say it’ll be ‘our’ plan, because the employees will feel ownership of it since they contribute. I think that’ll go a long way in helping any unrest.” And once the employees have developed administrative goals, the same is done with elected officials’ long-term vision for the municipality. Even further, Recor said, all of his work that he submits to elected officials is tailored to the point of keeping those goals in sight – even going so far as to associate specific picture icons with policy objectives and putting the appropriate icon on memos, reports, and agenda items. “It’s a matter of training them to think back to all the work we did when we laid this strategy out,” Recor said. And despite the work it may create, Recor said, it’s this fixation on long-term organization that keeps him sane. “Folks comments sometimes, ‘why are you so calm?’” he said. “Well, you have to be. It’s not like the work is going to go away tomorrow. We close up one agenda so that we can open the next.”

Plans to boost bus supervision placed in response to concerns ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) Responding to concerns about bus safety and overcrowding, city transportation officials said this week they are planning to pull bus supervisors from other duties and station them at critical high-volume stops. “What we did was to increase the number of supers out on the street able to hop on and off [the buses] to show some level of presence,” said Ocean City Public Works Director Hal Adkins. “We are not planning to do that every night or weekend; we do feel that there’s an abnormal amount of high school grads riding the buses during those two or three particular weeks in June.” At the beginning of the month, Councilman Joe Hall sent an e-mail to city officials expressing his concern about unruly passengers on the buses, and suggested looking into hiring security guards for late-night transportation during the summer. Although this idea was strongly rejected by the Ocean City Police Department – which already places officers aboard buses on a volunteer overtime basis – it initiated a series of meetings amongst public officials to investigate the bus system. The consensus seemed to be that any unease riders were feeling in crowded buses with rowdy teenage passengers was

not necessarily police enforceable. “The number of incidents has gone down steadily over the years,” said OCPD Public Information Officer Mike Levy. “The bus is still the most economical and safe way to get around the city.” “Is the concern warranted? Maybe, but we can’t substantiate anything,” Levy continued. “That’s their [city officials’] opinion. If they’re trying to improve service somehow, that’s definitely a good thing, but the data doesn’t support there being a problem.” “You can go out and find 100 people who don’t feel comfortable in taxis either,” he added. City Transportation Superintendent George Thornes said his department found much the same thing. “The events that happen on the bus were far less than years past. There were a few days that escalated, but, all in all, this was a very good year for us,” he said. What has seen an increase, Thornes said, is the volume of riders and the crowd control issues that go along with that. “In just one weekend, we had the air show, a soccer tournament, the car show, and a lacrosse event, all in a two-day span,” Thornes said. “These drivers are very taxed. They’re relieved that it’s winding down and I don’t blame them.” The weekend of the OC Air Show on See SUPERVISORS on Page 11

City lawmakers to discuss election consolidation Monday Council might lean toward changing date of election rather than merging ballots ZACK HOOPES ■Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) After some confusion about what would be required for the city to consolidate its municipal election with the national election, it appears the City Council will have two options for change when the issue is discussed at Monday’s meeting. Late last week, City Solicitor Guy Ayres circulated a memo to the mayor and council regarding a discussion he had with county elections officials about the possible change. The county, in turn, contacted the Maryland State Board of Elections. Ocean City has its own Board of Elections, which oversees municipal contests exclusively, while the county elections board supervises the polling for the county, state and national contests. Ayres outlined a number of steps that he was told would need to be taken, including the city adopting state election regulations, changing its filing deadline to match state ballot mailing, providing for the county voter rolls to accommodate Ocean City’s local list of voters, having Ocean City candidates file in Snow Hill, and paying the county to program its vot-

ing machines with Ocean City’s candidates. Additionally, Ocean City candidates would be last on the ballot and the city would have to pay for any special elections it needed in the future. On June 18, the council passed a motion to put the issue of election consolidations up for discussion at the July 2 meeting. Council members Doug Cymek, Mary Knight, and Lloyd Martin supported the measure, citing public demand, along with long-time proponent Joe Hall, who said he had seen an issue of voter confusion for many years. Of particular interest was the fact that Ayres said he had been told that the Maryland General Assembly would need to pass a resolution allowing Ocean City’s elections to be merged with the larger system, but that he had not verified this information himself. If that was, in fact, the case, Ocean City would be unable to change its election date for 2012 since the legislature is in recess until next January. However, Cymek said this week that other parties told him that some cities in Maryland had merged their elections without such a resolution. One such city is Hagerstown, where Washington County Board of Elections Director Kaye Robucci said that 2012 will be the first year in which Hagerstown’s elections will coincide with the national date. “It did not end up having to be approved by the General Assembly,�

Robucci said. “We like it, it’s something that’s been in the works for years, and I think it’s a good thing for voter turnout to be better.� If that were the case, the city would indeed be able to put its elections on the national ballot for this year. However, Ayres said, he and Cymek had also discussed the option of simply changing the city’s election date without going through the process of merging the ballots, meaning that the municipal election would be held simultaneously but separately from the larger contest. “I actually like that proposal better,� said Cymek. “One, we obviously would get more people out to vote, and two it wouldn’t get lost in what will probably turn out to be a massive ballot this year.� “The voters could basically enter into the normal poll, and after they’re done taking care of their state voting, would be able to go through another poll upon exiting for the local municipal election,� Cymek said. Knight also found this to be a possible choice. “Honestly, I would like that, and I don’t think anybody would be bothered by it,� she said. “I know the president (Council President Jim Hall) said he was concerned about Ocean City getting lost on the ballot, so here you would go to vote for Ocean City and then be funneled through to the federal,� Knight said. “I think that’s a viable option.� Councilman Brent Ashley and Mayor Rick Meehan also opined that the city’s

unique election would get lost in the shuffle. Unlike Hagerstown, Ocean City has its own voting equipment and could run its own election in a separate room of the convention center while the larger contest was going on. “We’re self-sufficient when it comes to that and there wouldn’t be any loss with what the county looked to capture if they ran the election,� Cymek said. Hagerstown, Robucci said, used to lease its voting equipment from Washington County, making simultaneous elections logistically difficult. The consolidation meant that Hagerstown’s own board of elections was subsequently absorbed into the Washington County board. Knight said she would still be open to full consolidation, even with the challenges Ayres outlined. “I think it’s incumbent upon me as a candidate to make it as easy for the voter as possible, if I have to go to Snow Hill to file, that’s fine,� she said. Joe Hall, was less enthusiastic about a date change without a ballot merger. “I still stand by the consolidation of the thing. I think if we’re going to do it, do it right,� he said. “My whole goal is a onestop shop.� 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.

Supervisors at high-volume stops along resort bus routes Continued from Page 7

June 9-10 was a record one for the city’s transportation system. Thornes said bus ridership was up by 14,256 riders – a 16.2 percent increase over the 2011 air show. Furthermore, the peak of the weekend saw 87 bus deployments over a 24-hour period, the biggest in the town’s history. Each deployment represents one bus and driver for an 8-hour shift, and since the city owns fewer than 87 buses, some vehicles had to be cleaned and prepped rapidly for multiple shifts in one day. Contrast that with a winter weekend, Thornes said, where the city might have only five deployments in 24 hours. Following city officials’ meetings, Hall said he, fellow Councilman Brent Ashley, and new City Manager David Recor took a late-night bus ride on a Saturday to gather some more information. Hall said that during the ride, he was particularly impressed with the ability of both the drivers and the supervisors stationed at key stops to control the crowds. “It was eye-opening,” Hall said. “I can’t give them enough accolades. When a supervisor gets aboard with a uniform and a radio, people really shape up.” “We put them [the supervisors] at the stops that are high-volume to help the driver when they pull up. We do that at critical times at any stop that we feel needs it. They’re there to take care of the drivers as well as the public,” Thornes said.

Adkins said, as a result of officials’ concerns, schedules will most likely be pre-arranged in the future so more supervisors can be out on the street, patrolling in vehicles on stationed at stops, during times of critical mass. “I think what you’ll see us do for next year is pre-plan those two or three weeks,” he said, in reference to the June weeks in which high school graduates typically flood the resort. “The issue seems to have subsided now that we’ve transitioned from having so many high school seniors here,” said Recor. “When we developed that strategy [of having more flexible supervisors], there was a notable difference in ridership volume. But that will be our strategy moving forward.” “What most people don’t realize is that we don’t have 10 or 15 supers out there,” Adkins said. “We rely heavily on technology, particularly the Automatic Vehicle Locator system. Our on-the-street supervision might be two or three individuals.” But while the AVL has been effective in keeping supervisors up-to-date on the location of buses – the current iteration has a refresh time of only 10 to 15 seconds – it hasn’t replaced the necessity of ‘boots on the ground.’ “Technology doesn’t always mean less people,” Thornes said. “You’ll never take the human factor out of this, especially in the environment that we have here.”

PIS participants ride resort bus for free Continued from Page 3

visit Splash Mountain Water Park at Jolly Roger on 30th Street and ride the Tidal Wave roller coaster at Trimper’s Rides and Amusements. A new event this year was a pizza and a dance party at Pizza Tugos in West Ocean City on Tuesday evenings. “It went really well,” Greenwood said. “The business itself is a great location for the event.” When Play It Safe debuted 23 years ago, it had just three events and 350 participants. Since its inception, more than 149,000 teenagers have signed up for the program’s free activities. Play It Safe, coordinated by the Worcester County Health Department and the Ocean City Drug

and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Committee, with support from the town of Ocean City and local businesses and organizations, was started as an effort to prevent the abuse of alcohol and drugs by high school-aged visitors to the resort. It aims to encourage recent high school graduates to make informed, healthy choices while having responsible fun without the use of drugs and alcohol. At the different events, participants could pick up a wristband, which allowed them to ride the resort bus free. The ability to ride the bus at no cost was a hit with both parents and teens, Greenwood said. “The parents are so appreciative of the city for allowing their kids to ride the bus for free,” she said.

Graduates also received Tshirts, food, drinks, giveaways and prizes at competitive events. Prizes were donated by local businesses. “We’re off and running planning for next year. The dates are in the works, and we’ll be starting soon after Memorial Day through mid-June,” said Twilley, who is retiring. Her final day as a community health educator is June 29. At this time, there has been no one hired to replace her as Play It Safe coordinator. Twilley said Monday she might continue to oversee the project. “I really do like this program,” she said. “It serves a real need in Ocean City.” For more information about Play It Safe, visit

State officials try new strategy for Coastal Highway crossings Continued from Page 1

Friday: Lauren Glick Saturday : Simple Truth








The new crosswalks are not brick, but thermoplastic sheets colored to look like brick paving. After laying them and aligning them, SHA workers use a torch to bond the plastic to the pavement beneath. “The idea is that the crossings will be more conspicuous to pedestrians and drivers, but especially to pedestrians so that they can see them and cross there instead of just running,� said SHA Traffic Engineering Manager Debbie Wicker. “I was in Ocean City the other weekend, and people darting out like that is a serious problem.� The new SHA crosswalk strategy goes against the previous thinking that was used when Coastal Highway’s median was built in the 1980s. At that time, the median was constructed with a number of depressions in it to allow vacationers with strollers and coolers to cross the highway at locations where there wasn’t a traffic signal. The depressions were often protected with stout wooden posts known as bollards, so that pedestrians could wait in the median for traffic to clear. Although this strategy served well for some years, the increase in traffic on Coastal Highway has made these features more trouble than they’re worth, and the SHA has been working to eliminate them. “Currently we are removing the depressed areas with the bollards that pro-

tect where you’re standing,� said Cimino. “The idea was to give them [pedestrians] a refuge.� “Little by little, we’re taking them out,� said Wicker. “It discourages them [pedestrians] from crossing in the middle.� For pedestrians, then, the most ideal situation would be to have signaled lights and crosswalks at every block. But this is not feasible, given Coastal Highway’s traffic patterns, Wicker said. “Intersections have to meet signal warrants, which is a lot of factors,� she said. “As the town developed to the north, that’s when the signals went in as they were needed.� This pattern of development has been not only a logistical issue, but also a legal one. According to OCPD Public Information Officer Mike Levy, preventative enforcement against jaywalkers is difficult because there are actually only three places on Coastal Highway where officers can make jaywalking arrests. Maryland law stipulates that a person is jaywalking only if they cross outside of a marked walkway even though there is one available to them at a controlled intersection in both directions. The spirit, presumably, is that people walking across country back-roads should not be arrested for jaywalking. But the effect is that, for Coastal Highway, there are only three places where consecutive marked intersections occur, See PEDESTRIAN on Page 15

JUNE 29, 2012

Pedestrian fatalities vary considerably among U.S. cities, abroad Continued from Page 14

and thus present pedestrians with the appropriate crossing options so that they may be arrested for jaywalking if they do not utilize them. Those places, Levy said, are between 2nd and 3rd Streets, 48th and 49th Streets, and the stretch of crossings in front of the Gold Coast Mall in North Ocean City. Pedestrians can otherwise be charged with being a traffic hazard, but this necessitates them presenting a clear obstruction that is difficult for police to prove. “You basically have to be blatantly unsafe for us to do anything,” Levy said. “I either have to wait until you get hit, or wait until the car misses you and spins out. Simply put, it’s nearly impossible to do enforcement where you see people running across a highway and there’s no clear violation.” “We’re running into a couple of huge problems, but the main one is pedestrians simply refusing to be safe. I think the ultimate answer has to be education,” Levy added. And despite the potential of infrastructure changes, Cimino felt the same way. The three-year study on which he based crosswalk placement also shows that the vast majority of accidents were “alcoholrelated, pedestrian error, or a combination thereof.” Sixty-one percent, in fact,

Volunteers sought for ‘Pony Patrol’ (June 29, 2012) Assateague Island National Seashore is seeking adult volunteers who enjoy working with people for its 2012 “Pony Patrol.” Volunteers contact visitors involved in the unsafe and illegal practice of feeding and petting horses along Assateague Island’s roads. Although most of this year’s positions have been filled, an unexpected change has left the patrol short of weekend staff. Volunteers are needed to work a fourhour shift: Saturday afternoons from 2-6 p.m., or Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 2-6 p.m. Every year, visitors are bitten or kicked by the wild horses. The purpose of the Pony Patrol is to help the public enjoy the horses safely and in appropriate ways. The focus is on education, with the goal of minimizing petting and feeding incidents to maintain the wild nature of the horses and reduce the number hit by cars. The patrol operates from Memorial Day through Labor Day, or longer for those volunteers who wish to stay on. Applicants should have good people skills and enjoy talking with the public. Volunteers will be provided training on horse behavior, the problems associated with human/horse interactions and how to safely deal with roadside animals. Patrols are conducted on paved roads by bicycle, so applicants must be physically fit enough to be able to complete their time commitment under summer weather conditions. Volunteers must be willing to commit to one four-hour shift per week, June through August. Contact Allison Turner at 410-6296072 or

were attributed to intoxication. “You can’t engineer your way out of that,” Cimino said. “That’s an education component that we’re trying to move to as well.” National and international statistical evidence points to both factors — city design and pedestrian obedience — being important. The 2010 New York City Pedestrian Safety and Action Plan outlines pedestrian accident rates across the world, in terms of annual deaths per 100,000 residents. Notable is the fact that America’s older-style cities with more closely set grids experience fewer deaths – Portland, New York, Seattle, Boston, and San Francisco all come in between 3.39 and 4.33 annually. A slight jump is seen when moving to the Midwestern cities and the more suburbanized East Coast, such as Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, which records 6.22 fatalities. And a massive jump is seen when moving to some industrial and rapidly suburbanizing areas,

with Detroit and Atlanta seeing 10.31 and 10.97, respectively. Such a number for Ocean City would be difficult to establish, given the town’s fluctuating vacation population. Considering that peak summer weekends bring in about 250,000 people, one could estimate that the average population over the three summer months is around 200,000. If Ocean City sees no more deaths this season, that would give one death for every 100,000 people over a span of three months. Projecting that to annual numbers, Ocean City would have an average of around 4 deaths if it were to be in summertime conditions year-round. A 2003 report by the Federal Highway Administration also notes that “studies show pedestrian behavior to be generally better in the presence of marked crosswalks,” with tests demonstrating that increased crosswalk markings increase “looking behavior” in traffic. The report also noted, however, that “pedestrians in groups tended not to use

the marked crosswalks,” a phenomenon many residents have reported seeing in Ocean City, especially amongst groups of teens. Sweitzer was killed while crossing with two other friends. The low end of deaths for American cities also seems to be the norm for most European cities, with between three and four deaths annually. Some have noted, however, that crosswalks may be linked to cultural behavior. Societies with a tradition of high social cohesion do experience much lower pedestrian death rates, particularly in Asia and the Nordic countries, despite the sprawling nature of cities like Tokyo and Berlin. That being said, the ability of pedestrians to use the means available to them is also a difficult factor to quantify. “People don’t realize that they have to push the ‘cross’ button,” Wicker said. “If you don’t press the button, the signal operates on how many vehicles are on the side street, and you probably won’t have enough time.”

OC Police report cautious use of new open container policy ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

4HURSDAY *ULYTHsPM Join us for Bingo and a chance to win one of many fabulous purses... Final game prize will be a COACH® purse!

(June 29, 2012) Since the re-inception of the city’s open container law as a criminal misdemeanor last week, the Ocean City Police Department has reported making eight such arrests, but police are optimistic that some of the year’s most difficult times for problematic public drinking are behind them. OCPD Public Information Officer Mike Levy said eight people have been arrested for public possession of an open container of alcohol since the City Council voted unanimously last week to re-criminalize the offense. Previously, the city considered such offenses to be civil infractions, which came with a citation and a ticket similar to a parking violation. Although the city had previously classified open container offenses as criminal violations that could result in arrest, officials changed that to a civil infraction some years ago when open container arrests were perceived as becoming less of a problem. The move was made to reduce the workload on police, but it was the OCPD two weeks ago that asked for a return of the old policy. “The reasoning is that it will give officers a tool to take care of a problem when it’s small,” OCPD Chief Bernadette DiPino told the council when she requested the

change. “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.” Elected officials had expressed some reservations in approving the change, namely concerns over police discretion to use the power of arrest only when absolutely necessary. “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 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.” Levy noted that officers’ use of their newfound discretion is still relatively small compared to the number of other alcoholrelated charges the OCPD typically deals out. In the same period as the eight open container arrests, officers also recorded 38 incidents of disorderly intoxication and 16 of public consumption. See OPEN on Page 30

Johnston named to ‘Circle of Excellence’ (June 29, 2012) Dr. Carolyn S. Johnston of Salisbury and Ocean City has been named to The (Baltimore) Daily Record’s Circle of Excellence, a distinction earned by being named one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women three times. The Daily Record’s annual list of Maryland’s Top 100 Women was created to recognize outstanding achievement by Dr. Carolyn S. women as demonstrated through professional acJohnston complishments, community leadership and mentoring. Circle of Excellence inductees are recognized for sustained achievements in those areas. “Dr. Carolyn Johnston lives as a leader in education in Maryland,” said John Fredericksen, Wicomico County Public Schools superintendent. “She serves on state level committees to help students and teachers improve their reading, English, and language arts skills, leads teams of educators in Wicomico County and delivers professional development constantly improving reading instruction. “She has personally mentored a student for several years through the challenging times of elementary, middle, and high school,” Fredericksen continued. “She also keeps herself delivering excellence through ongoing training in reading and leadership, physical fitness (running), and family activities. She’s a Renaissance leader in Delmarva.” Since 1996, The Daily Record has rec-

ognized more than 1,000 high-achieving Maryland women who are making an impact in the state through its Top 100 Women and Circle of Excellence awards. The Top 100 Women awards celebration was held on May 7 at he Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. In order to qualify for The Daily Record’s Circle of Excellence, women must have been named to the Top 100 Women list two previous times. As with Top 100 Women, nominations are solicited from economic development agencies, women’s organizations, chambers of commerce and the business community at large. Nominees are asked to provide an application outlining their educations and career history, professional and community involvement, and corporate and nonprofit board memberships. A panel of judges comprised of business professionals and past Top 100 Women winners from throughout Maryland review all of the applications submitted. Judges are asked to be extremely selective when it comes to selecting those women named to the Circle of Excellence. They look for continued involvement in all key areas — professional accomplishment, community leadership and mentoring — and demonstration that each nominee remains actively involved and proactive. This year there were only 11 Circle of Excellence recipients recognized. Johnston is supervisor of reading for the Wicomico County Public Schools. The See RECOGNITION on Page 30

After 30 years,53-year-old doctor rejoins OC Beach Patrol ranks Manages internal medicine practice during week and guards beach on weekends LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor


John Cary participates in training exercises during the Ocean City Beach Patrol’s Surf Rescue Academy, June 17-24. The 53-year-old guarded the Ocean City beach during the summers of 1980-82. Thirty years later, he has returned to the stand.

(June 29, 2012) In the early 1980s, John Cary guarded the Ocean City beach every summer for three years. Now, some 30 years later, the 53-yearold has returned to the stand to keep an eye on resort swimmers and beachgoers. In 1980, when he was 21, Cary spent his first summer guarding the beach and ocean in the midtown area, around 40th and 50th streets, he said. He was in the same location the following summer, and in 1982, he was stationed on 142nd Street as the last guard stationed on the 10-mile strip of Ocean City beach. Since then, Cary completed to medical school and started an internal medicine practice in Manassas, Va. He and his wife, Betsy, who met in Ocean City in 1979, have four daughters, ages 30, 28, 25 and 24. “We met at the beach and we haven’t been back much at all. With work, kids and medical school, there just wasn’t time,” he said. Cary said they talked about getting back to the beach more often; in fact, just last year, he had planned to try out

for the Ocean City Beach Patrol, but an injury one week before the testing put that plan on hold. “It was a minor injury, but I couldn’t swim,” he said of the mishap — a broken collarbone resulting from a lowspeed motorcycle accident. Cary still came to the resort to watch others test and he said he couldn’t wait to tryout this year. He had been doing Crossfit, a core strengthing and conditioning program, for about a year, which he said put him in “decent” shape. He stopped Crossfit when he began training for the beach patrol test. For two months, Cary swam about a mile, four to five days a week, and he also did some running, he said. On June 9, Cary took the test, which included completing a 300-meter soft sand run in 65 seconds, a 400-meter ocean swim in less than 10 minutes, and doing a series of simulated rescues, among other actions, and passed. He had a week off before the Surf Rescue Academy, which ran from June 17-24. The academy was new to him, Cary said, because when he first became a lifeguard 30 years ago, all he had to do was pass the test, endure a few hours of training and then sit with and observe a guard for a few days. After that, he worked on his own. “It’s nothing like it was 30 years ago. Now you have 70 hours of training in seven days,” he said. “It’s really physically intensive, and you’re in the classSee CARY on Page 29

Restraint on election day might also help turnout One of the impediments to a larger voter turnout in Ocean City’s municipal elections is that some people simply don’t want to run the gauntlet of poll workers as they cross the parking lot on their way into the convention center. It’s a free speech issue, so, outside of requiring candidates and workers to maintain a certain distance from the actual polling place, there is no way to regulate the often aggressive, albeit earnest, advocacy for a particular candidate or cause. Even so, one would assume that most voters already have their minds made up by the time they take the long walk, thus making those last-minute appeals and suggestions generally pointless. While it might be that some few people aren’t quite clear on one or two things and will weigh the possibilities up until the time they pull one lever or the other, the campaigners who scramble to round up their votes just might cost candidates more than they gain. There is certainly nothing wrong with the party-like atmosphere of the convention center parking lot on election day, nor are the candidates’ tents and work stations out of place. Both of these things make the election more of an event, as opposed to a legal requirement. But rare would be the person who doesn’t feel a tinge of discomfort when he or she is accosted by an eager political operative whose candidate isn’t on their personal ballot. A simple handshake, a warm greeting or a “Thanks for voting” would suffice. Voters can always visit, mingle and discuss politics with whomever they choose, but it should be their choice, as opposed to being drawn into a circumstance they would rather avoid. The only way the situation can be controlled is for the candidates and referendum backers, when that situation arises, to urge their workers to exercise some restraint, thus allowing citizens to do their duty however they choose to do it. It may not result in double-digit increases in the turnout, but making people more comfortable about voting couldn’t hurt.

Moving OC’s election is the right call Editor, Combining the national and municipal elections in Ocean City is the right choice. I’ll never forget the 2010 municipal election. On that Tuesday, it was literally a ghost town at the convention center. To point out how sparsely populated it was, a song started on the radio when I entered the building and it was still playing upon returning to my vehicle. At that moment I realized to expect the unexpected with the results. And as we all know, Brent Ashley narrowly beat Joe Mitrecic for the final seat that was up for grabs. That small margin drastically changed the landscape of the council, forming a new “majority.” I don’t think we need to document the many controversies that have happened since then. But the fact of the matter is, that small percentage of registered voters who turned out that day (less than 25 percent) narrowly changed the legislative landscape of our town. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather see 50 percent of the registered voters deciding who sits on our council over 25 percent, and that is what the national election has consistently shown to turn out. Doesn’t it only make sense then to combine the elections? I’ll admit that I would miss the announcing of the results part of election night. But I would much

I always vote in both elections, but I know a lot of people who simply forget to vote in the municipal election or don’t realize when it is. I commend council members [Doug] Cymek, [Mary] Knight and [Lloyd] Martin for changing their stances on this issue and listening to the concerns of the citizens. It’s refreshing to see politicians who still do what they are elected to do: serve the people. Now, hopefully with combining the two elections, us registered voters will do what our rights as Americans are: show up and vote. Rich Drake Ocean City

Nostalgia should be no factor in election Editor, The current election system discriminates against people with jobs. Government employees receive the day off to vote in the national elections. The local election leaves a narrow window for these workers to vote. Schoolteachers who participate in after-school activities

should be afforded the same opportunity as the unemployed. Clinging to “nostalgia” does not excuse voter suppression. Sean Rox Ocean City

Thanks to community for successful event Editor, The Art League of Ocean City would like to thank the artists, sponsors and volunteers who made this year’s Plein Air Paint Out a success. Thirty-three artists from all over the region participated in the event. Artists came from Baltimore, Washington, D.C., La Plata, Delaware and Salisbury to compete for more than $2,450 in prizes. Thank you to the Ocean City Development Corporation for providing $1,750 in prize money, the HMRA for $500, Jan Bain for $100 and to La Hacienda Restaurant for providing gift certificates for the honorable mentions. Thanks, also to Bryan Russo for providing beautiful entertainment during the Wet Paint sale, for Laura Era of Troika Gallery in Easton for judging the overall event and Brad Hudson of University of Maryland Eastern Continued on Page 21

Count me in. There are promotions and then there are promotions, but finally an effort has been made that, in my opinion, is far superior to a free hermit crab with every purchase. Will I am sure that a free crab might entice any number of people into a particular location, there are those of us whose hearts don’t flutter at the site of assorted crustacea and would prefer something more, well, exotic. As I was driving up the highway Monday, lost in thought about the


sorry state of the marketing world and the all-t0-frequent lack of pop in today’s messages, I saw the sign. From the looks of it, I wouldn’t much care if they were serving Kibble n’ Bits, because this is clearly a promotion that has a great deal going for it. What surprised me was that while I always believed that the expansion of gambling in the state would soon lose its luster and that we would dig ever deeper to find something that Delaware doesn’t offer -- yet -- I didn’t think it would happen this quickly. Later, however, as I made another circuit on the highway (anticipating a long line at the door) I found that this was all a cruel hoax perpetrated by persons unknown and that the sign had been corrected. Even so, I still don’t want a hermit crab.

Shore for judging the quick draw. The winners of this year’s event were Tara Funk Grim, first place and Artists’ Choice; Dorothy Harrison Braun, second place; and David Simpson, third place. Honorable Mentions went to Sandra Esham, Gerilynn Gaskill, Yelena Macleod and Barbara Septula. Quick Draw winners were Cheryl Wisbrock, first place; Rina Thaler, second place; and Sandra Esham, third place. The event would not be possible without the efforts of our committee chairwoman Paige Ruby and her volunteers. The public is invited to view and purchase the paintings created during the event at the August reception and exhibit at the Art League of Ocean City on 94th Street. The opening reception will be Friday, Aug. 3, from 5-7 p.m., when people who are eager to collect Ocean City scenes can have the first chance to purchase the original artwork.

OC bus system is a winner Editor, My husband and I both read with interest the editorial and article concerning bus safety, supply and demand in the June 15 issue of Ocean City Today. As first-time visitors, we were impressed with the bus system. We used the buses heavily for two days and never felt unsafe. Our stay, midweek during the firemen’s celebration, did find the buses crowded after 7 p.m., but not overly so. The buses were a great value and easy to navigate. They saved us money in parking fees and gas. We are certain they help to keep traffic down and intoxicated drivers off the roads. They were also a nice way to sit back and familiarize ourselves to the area (we rode the whole route a couple of Continued on Page 22

READERS’ FORUM cept the idea that an outside agency needs to be involved in our employment. I don’t want to pay for some meddling group to support me. I’ll take care of my own business, thanks. I don’t want to pay for security that can’t possibly be guaranteed, as things change all the time. And as far as equality, you can’t compare the skills of an accountant to a cop or a firefighter or a heavy equipment operator. They’re all different as each of us is. Different skills, abilities, passions, ethics, etc. — this list goes on and as such, compensation equality can’t happen. Are we all to get paid $100,000 a year no matter what? That might be nice, but that’s not going to happen, with or without representation. Ocean City employees offer an array of talents and abilities and are pretty well compensated for them. True, no raises in four years, but the economy’s been in the tank; it will come back. Paying union dues isn’t going to put us financially ahead, even with a raise.

Not all OC employees favor union intrusion Editor, I have to question the statements made by Ms. [Barbara] Dahan in Mr. Hoopes’ article last week, that all employees support union efforts being made. That is not the case. All employees do not support collective bargaining. Ms. Dahan states that we want support and equality and security — we have that. Ms. Dahan states we want consistency on rules and regulations — we have an employee manual that spells out rules and regulations. There are plenty of employees who don’t ac-

Grateful for support of WSW golf tourney Editor, Thank you to everyone who helped

to make successful the Swing into Spring Golf Tournament to benefit the Worcester County chapter of Women Supporting Women, our local breast cancer awareness and support organization. It was a wonderful event that, because of the generous nature of this community, raised more than $10,000 for our chapter. First and foremost, credit for this event must go to Ed and Margaret Colbert, of Deer Run Golf Club in Berlin, and their hard-working employees. Long-time supporters of WSW, they hosted the golf tournament for the Worcester County chapter and put in countless hours to ensure that it was a success. A bevy of businesses and community organizations also offered their support by becoming tournament sponsors. Our major sponsors were Mike’s Carpet Connection in Fenwick Island, Del., Nationwide William Staples Insurance and Financial in Salisbury, the Ocean City Elks Lodge #2645 and the Pocomoke City Elks Lodge #1624.

Hooper’s Crab House receives catering license

(June 29, 2012) The Board of License Commissioners discussed the following issues during the Friday, June 22, meeting.

The board approved the request of general manager Ryan Intrieri, manager Patrick Brady and owners Pete and Royette Shepherd for a caterer’s license to be used in conjunction with Hooper’s alcoholic beverage license. The board also approved the request to expand the licensed premises to include two acres of property adjacent to the restaurant 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Sept. 8, for the fourth annual Brews on the Beach and from 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Sept. 12-16 for Bike Week. Both events may have vendors and live entertainment. Hooper’s is located at the foot of the Route 50 bridge in West Ocean City.

Atlantic Hotel request approved The board approved the request of owner Bill Purnell to expand the licensed premises to the parking lot of the Atlantic Hotel, 420 Atlantic Ave. in Ocean City, for Bike Week, Sept. 12-15. Alcohol sales may take place 8 p.m. - midnight on Wednesday and from noon until midnight Thursday through Saturday. The board also approved his request for live entertainment each day for the same hours.

The board approved the request of owner Steve Pappas to expand the licensed premises for Bike Week. Pappas will have part of the parking lot roped off. No sales of alcohol will take place there, but people may purchase alcoholic beverages inside and carry them outside to that area. Pappas said he had been doing that for a few years and had had no complaints. The Greene Turtle is located at 116th Street.

Riverside Grill awaits approval The board approved the request of Mark and Leslie Reeves for a seven-day beer, wine and liquor license for the Riverside Grill, the eatery they plan to open adjacent to the Delmarva Discovery Center in Pocomoke. The approval is contingent on the resident agent obtaining the required signatures for the application. The board also approved the request for live entertainment of up to three pieces four nights per week. The town of Pocomoke built the restaurant to encourage economic development there.

Marco Polo recovering from fire NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer


Though the Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office continues to look into Sunday’s fire at Marco Polo Pizzeria on 12th Street in Ocean City, investigators believe electrical wiring is to blame.

(June 29, 2012) The owner of the 12th Street pizzeria heavily damaged by fire Sunday night expects to reopen within the next two weeks. “When we open, we will be 100 percent,” Marco Polo owner Bahjat Alsabbar said Tuesday as he and Oleg Boyko, one of his employees, worked on taking items out to trash containers in the parking lot. When firefighters arrived at about 10:30 p.m., they saw smoke and fire coming from the roof, where the fire is believed to have originated. Ladder truck crews vented two holes in the roof to locate the fire, which was suppressed in approximately 40 minutes. “The water did a lot of damage,” Alsabbar said. When the fire was first noticed, Alsabbar’s partner’s brother and another employee were in the back and two young women were waiting on customers out front. “My guy said, ‘Go, go,’ “ Alsabbar said. Some of the customers had paid and later, they asked for their money back. There were also customers who had called for delivery and had paid by

family members work at Marco Polo. All will have their jobs when the business reopens. “They were there for me,” he said. “It’s not their fault.” In the meantime, they’ve been cleaning out the pizzeria. In addition to a new roof and ceiling, nearly everything else, including the ovens and other appliances, will be new. The Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the fire, which is believed to have involved electrical wiring.

credit card. When Alsabbar called one of those customers, he said, “Don’t worry about it,” Alsabbar said. Another credit card customer said he would take care of it later. This is the third summer for the pizzeria. For the first two summers, it was known as Mack’s Pizzeria. The name changed to Marco Polo Pizzeria when it opened this year in March. Alsabbar’s partner selected the name. Four employees and various

Sea Watch bacteria is same suspect as in Plim Plaza infection Continued from Page 1

triggers an investigation of the facility.” Although the samples from the Sea Watch tested positive, Stevens cautioned that the two reported cases linked to the condo could be incidental. “There’s no way to say conclusively that they contracted it at the Sea Watch,” Stevens said. However, the condo is required to notify residents and visitors of the possible risk. Legionnaire’s Disease is a form of pneumonia, caused by a person inhaling aerosolized water — i.e. water vapor, steam, or mist — that carries the bacteria. The subsequent infection of the lungs causes flu-like symptoms that are typically not serious in healthy adults, but can be deadly for children, the elderly, and those with otherwise weakened immune systems. It is not contagious from person to person. The bacteria tend to grow in enclosed, standing waters at slightly higher than average temperatures. “It’s not an unusual thing to find,” Stevens said. “It does like to proliferate in water that is still and between 70 and 120 degrees. It’s very difficult to tell where the bacteria get introduced into the water system.” City Manager David Recor said that the city’s water supply had been tested and was not the source. “We treat the water before its put into the supply and, from what I understand, chlorine typically does the trick,” he said. “What happens is that there are traces still in the water, and when freshwater






sits in a plumbing system for a period of time, it becomes stagnant and the bacteria develops, particularly when combined with heat.” In October, a Legionella outbreak at the Plim Plaza resulted in several illnesses and one death. A group complaint, filed in Baltimore City this past January but re-filed, as of June 18, in Snow Hill, names 13 plaintiffs, including the heirs of Minnie M. Hoffman, who allegedly died from the illness she contracted at the Plim. Jules Zacher, the attorney for the plaintiffs, said that the case was being moved to Snow Hill in an agreement with the Harrison Group, which owns the Plim and is listed as the defendant in each count.

Allen and Stevens said they have advised guests to take measures such as taking tub baths instead of showers and not using saunas, hot tubs, or whirlpools that could cause one to breathe in infected vapors. “Everyone can make a decision based on their own personal health,” Stevens said. “Our role is to make sure that, while there is a risk, people are notified.” Allen said that several of the real estate companies who rent units in the building have called in with cancellations. But the majority of owner-occupied units have decided to stick it out. “We’ve had a lot of people here,” Allen said. “We have a few year-round residents and a lot of people who stay all summer, and they’re all here.”

At the Sea Watch, manager Bob Allen said the condo had already entered into a contract with a company to come up with a remediation plan for the contamination, as required by the health department. As of June 19, the condo has also been distributing a memo to all of its guests, which notes that samples taken in the sauna, one of the units, and the men’s restroom at the swimming pool have tested positive. Following treatment, the health department will test the condo’s water every two weeks for three months, and then once per month for another three months until results come up clear.

“You’ve got somebody who is totally intoxicated and they’re not being discreet about it, you need to take care of the problem the first time,” Levy said, in reference to what he termed the “policy criteria” that officers are trained to use in making such judgments. “My belief is that there’s been enough emphasis put on this change that people will understand the philosophy behind it,” Levy said. “If history is to be our lesson, the pre-payable citations weren’t working properly.” Much of the public support for the measure cited the need for a means to investigate and detain the plethora of underage drinkers found during the post-high school graduation weeks of June. “If they act the wrong way [towards police], we need to be able to send them to jail,” said Joe Groves, current president of the Delmarva Condo Managers’ Association. “We’re evicting kids and we can’t send them anywhere because they’re too drunk. From a DCMA standpoint, it’s needed.” Levy said he was hopeful that the number of arrests would decline as June came to an end, but cautioned that “this isn’t just driven by senior week, it’s also the car cruisers’ activities, bike week … it’s not just relegated to the month of June or one age group.”

Pusey Country Store still an eyesore in Snow Hill NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) If the owners of a derelict property in Snow Hill do not make firm plans to fix it or demolish it, the Worcester County Commissioners will have it razed. “I want to be on the legal safe side and give them 30 days,” Commissioner Virgil Shockley said about the old Pusey’s Country Store on Route 12. The commissioners discussed the old building during their meeting Dec. 6, 2011, but did not declare it to be a public nuisance. It had been tied up in an estate and one section had collapsed. The owners had recently taken title to the property and one of them was getting bids to demolish part or all of it, said Ed Tudor, director of the Department of Development Review and Permitting. Because of that, the commissioners decided to give the property heir until Feb. 1, 2012 to take corrective action before they considered their next step. When February came, the commissioners learned no progress had been made at the store. Tudor said a portion of the building on the right side had been damaged by fire and had collapsed and the commissioners determined that at least that portion of the old country store was dilapidated, burned out, fallen down and ramshackle. They declared it to be a public nuisance and ordered the abatement of the nuisance conditions within 30 days. They also agreed to give the property owner 15 days to request a hearing on the matter. The property owner did ask for a hearing, which was held March 6. Tudor noted that the area had been cleaned up and a fence erected in front of the fallen portion of the building, but the commissioners said that was insufficient. The owner then asked for an additional 90 days to complete the required abatement. He asked for a list of required repairs, but the commissioners balked at that request and told him to hire a contractor to examine the building and determine what needed to be done. The commissioners also said if the site was not cleaned in a 90-day period, the county would step in and clean it at the property owner’s cost. During the commissioners June 19 meeting, the issue returned. This time, Tudor said fire debris had been cleaned, but the building was heavily rotted and the roof leaks extensively. Commissioner Louise Gulyas wanted the county to move ahead and raze the building. “It’s an eyesore, it’s a mess,” she said. “A haven for homeless people.” Commission President Bud Church was also ready for action. “We may be doing them a favor by tearing it down,” Church said. County attorney Sonny Bloxom suggested caution and said the commissioners should send a letter saying the county would raze the unsafe portions of the building if no action was taken within 30 days. They decided to send a letter stating they want a signed contract for abatement of the nuisance or action to bring the building into compliance.


The Worcester County Commissioners want the old Pusey Country Store in Snow Hill to be brought into compliance with the county code for safety reasons or to be demolished.

Nicole Bennett murder investigation continues; reward offered NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) During the television airing of the case of the murder of Nicole Reiser Bennett on the Nancy Grace show last Friday, her brother said she had stayed home from work that day because her youngest of three daughters was sick. Bennett, who worked at the daycare at Bay Shore Community Church in Gumboro, went to the church after her husband, Kevin, arrived home after work Thursday, June 14, Craig Reiser said. He watched the child so she could make up the time she missed. At about 7:30 p.m., she called or texted her husband to say she had some more work to do and would be going to the grocery store before going home. “And Kevin, you know, he fell asleep on the couch, which wasn’t out of the norm,”

Reiser said. “He used to do that when we were … for holidays and stuff. So he woke up early in the morning. That’s when he realized she wasn’t home. But that’s pretty much it. I mean, I think he … once Nicole Bennett he called in … once he found out, he called in right away because … Grace found the time frame puzzling. “I still can’t get my head around her calling home around 7:30, 7:40 p.m., saying, ‘I’m still working late. I’m going to stop by the grocery and come home. And she’s not reported missing until 8 a.m. the next morning. That’s a long time.” Just about one hour after Kevin Bennett reported his wife missing, her body was found by a hiker walking along

Swamp Road, a dirt road near Whaleyville. Her body was lying in the embankment about six miles from Bay Shore Community Church, a non-denominational church. Her red mini-van, with her cell phone and pocketbook inside, was parked at the church. When Grace asked Reiser if the Bennetts had a good marriage, he said things “were really good. I mean, especially the last, you know, three or four months, things were great.” His sister’s life revolved around her family and church. “Nicole was devoted to those three girls and her family and (inaudible) I mean, it was pretty much work at the church and the day care there at church and the family. That was it.” Nicole Bennett had grown up in a small town in Nebraska where she was

raised in the Catholic faith. An online video filmed during the past year shows her talking about her family and faith before her baptism by immersion in water. She talked about her upbringing in a Catholic household and how religion was an issue when she met Kevin Bennett, who was not Catholic. Her sister told her, she said, that as long as she believed in God, the difference in religious denominations should not matter. Bennett cherished that memory, she said, because her sister was killed in a motor vehicle accident in 2003. The investigation into her death is continuing and a reward is being offered to anyone with information leaded to the arrest of a suspect or suspects responsible for Bennett’s murder. Anyone with information is asked to call the Worcester County Lower Shore Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.

Pedestrian hit

A 32-year-old Delmar woman found lying in one of the lanes on Route 611 at about 8 p.m. on June 12 was charged with disorderly conduct after reportedly becoming belligerent with deputies of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office who were called to check on her. Deputies stated she was highly intoxicated when they took her to the Sheriff’s Office to be processed. She was released to the care and custody of a man who went to the office to give her a ride home. According to the Sheriff’s Office, she became irate with him and threw pieces of paper at him. Eventually, she threw a pen at him and deputies, resulting in a charge

Another instance of a pedestrian being struck while running through traffic outside of a crosswalk happened June 21, although police say the victim’s injuries are not life threatening. At 1:36 pm, a 19-year-old woman from Glen Burnie was hit with the front right-side bumper of a passenger car while attempting to cross from the west side to the east side of Baltimore Avenue, roughly 20 feet north of the 2nd Street intersection. “From the preliminary investigation, it looks like the pedestrian attempted to run eastbound across Baltimore amongst traffic,” said Ocean City Police Department Public Affairs Specialist

Jessica Waters. “She was taken by EMS to PRMC [Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury] and is likely to be treated and released. I’m seeing no major injuries reported, mainly abrasions to her legs and hips.” Waters also said that it appears alcohol was not involved for either the pedestrian or the driver.

Inlet rescue Two teens were rescued in the inlet Monday after their personal watercrafts capsized because of strong winds and waves. A U.S. Coast Guard crew in a 25-foot rescue boat made the rescues at about 6:30 p.m. when one of severe storms that day passed over the resort. A person at a nearby motel saw the teens flipped into the water and called 911. Before their rescue, the teens, who were wear-

Deadly weapon A 19-year-old Hanover woman was charged June 23 with having a concealed deadly weapon after an Ocean City policeman saw a switchblade knife in her pocket. Two policemen had stopped at 120th Street for a “park and walk” at about 4:20 a.m. They saw three people walking down by the water and approached them. Kimberly Lorainne Putt consented to a search and the officer saw the knife and removed it. The officer also found a small bottle. Continued on Page 34

Pennsylvania teen arrested twice on June 19 while in Ocean City NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) A Pennsylvania teenager was arrested twice in one day last week. Trouble started for Wayne Michael Jelinek, 18, at about 1 a.m. June 19, when a policeman saw him and a younger teen facing each other on the Boardwalk near Surf Avenue and heard them encourage each other to start a fight. Both had their legs and feet staggered for better balance, their arms were raised with fists in the air. The policeman saw Jelinek hit the other boy in the face with his right hand and then saw the boy retaliate with a strike to Jelinek’s face. The boy also tried to push Jelinek over the seawall onto the beach. Approximately 15 to 20 people had assembled to watch the fight. After the policeman separated them, the boy told him he had been walking back to his hotel on the Boardwalk and he had approached a group of people, including Jelinek. He asked the group if they were in Ocean City for Senior Week and Jelinek cursed and told the boy not to talk to him. After that brief exchange, the two began to square off against each other. Jelinek’s side of the story was that the teen had approached his group and said something vulgar, but he did not recall the exact comment. Then they exchanged dirty looks and the boy knocked a cup out of his

hand, Jelinek said. The policeman arrested both Jelinek and the juvenile, charging them with affray and second-degree assault. He also contacted the juvenile’s father to inform him of his son’s arrest and the need for him to come collect him from the police station in Ocean City. Jelinek did not stay out of trouble for long. At about 8 a.m. that morning, he was in the parking lot of the Public Safety Building, which houses District Court and the headquarters of the Ocean City Police Department. It was about the time the police were changing shifts and some of them smelled the odor coming from the car where Jelinek and two friends were sitting. They ordered the three, all from the town of Cranberry, to exit the vehicle and then searched it. They found several bags of marijuana, paraphernalia and dextroamphetamine, a schedule I controlled dangerous substance. Vance Austin Embry, 19, was charged with possession of marijuana and three counts of possession of paraphernalia. Julian Dominick Jordano, 19, and Jelinek were charged with possession of dextroamphetamine. Jelinek was put in handcuffs for the second time in fewer than 10 hours. After an initial appearance before a court commissioner, all were released on their personal recognizance.

Owner of 45th Street Village denied request to sell liquor NANCY POWELL â&#x2013; Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) The owner of 45th Street Village and the many Sunsations stores in Ocean City was denied his request last week to sell liquor at his new beer and wine store. Avi Sibony, who has been in business in the resort about 25 years, said he wanted to de-emphasize grocery items and to add liquor. The closest liquor store to the south is at 17th Street and the closest one to the north is at 66th Street. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acknowledge that Seacrets owner Leighton Moore already had a license to sell beer, wine and liquor in sealed containers to go from the his 48th Street location, but that was the main gist of his attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument during the June 22 meeting of the Board of License Commissioners in Snow Hill. Attorney Pete Cosby said public safety was a factor that should be considered. The Seacrets parking lot is too congested and people who wanted to purchase liquor would have difficulty finding a place to park and negotiating the traffic in the parking lot. Moore said there would be no such problem because he was using 60 parking spaces just for those customers. He also employs security personnel for the parking lot and people could direct the

customers to parking spaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will be assured of a parking space,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. Moore renovated the boutique in the Seacrets parking lot to sell beer, wine and liquor there. He could have been selling the alcohol to go as many as 24 years ago because his liquor license has no restriction. He said the new store would open today, Friday, June 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will absolutely fill the public need,â&#x20AC;? said William E. Esham Jr., chairman of the Board of License Commissioners. Cosby said there would be enough business for both places to sell liquor to go and continued to push the public safety angle. The 45th Street Village has ample parking and customers would not encounter traffic problems there, he said. The parking issue, he said, was unique and should be considered in the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, he said. Robert Cowger, director of the oneyear-old Worcester County Department of Liquor Control, opposed Sibonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application to sell liquor, citing the lack of public need for it. In addition to the county liquor stores at 18th Street and 114th Street, there are five privatelyowned liquor stores. If Sibony could sell liquor, his store would be just 1,056 feet from Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor store and stores are


The Bayside Market will continue to see beer and wine, but the Board of License Commissioners denied it a liquor license, saying there was no need for liquor sales at that location.

Long’s plans dashed when board denies license

BOARD OF LICENSE COMM. BRIEFS Continued from Page 26 The couple bought the Market Street Inn in Salisbury in 1989 and operated it for 13 years. They now own the Back Street Grill on Snow Hill Road in Salisbury.

Dead Freddie’s can have live entertainment The board approved the request for Dead Freddie’s, located at 64th Street bayside in Ocean City, to have entertainment of up to three pieces 3-9 p.m. five nights per week on the outside deck. The music will not be amplified, but the singer would have a microphone. The board denied the request for a disc jockey to play music and make announcements from 8:30 p.m. 1:30 a.m. five nights each week, but allowed the disc jockey to play music and make announcements 5-11 p.m.

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) After working for the past couple of months to renovate the former Pulse nightclub at 45th Street, Steve Long’s plans to operate a club for the older generation were dashed last week when he was denied an alcoholic beverage license. At the conclusion of its June 22 hearing, the Board of License Commissioners said Long had failed to show a public need for the license to sell beer, wine and

liquor at the Retro Music Hall. Long, a certified licensed master electrician who specialized in working in bars and restaurants, said his business plan was “to provide an entertainment and drink atmosphere for the older crowd.” Michael Marshall, who said he owned 20 percent of the business, also saw it as unique. “It’s something we don’t have in Ocean City. There’s no place the older group can go and enjoy themselves,” Marshall said.

Existing shops adversely affected Continued from Page 39

Lazy Lizard request granted The board approved the request for the Lazy Lizard, located at First Street and the bay, to expand the licensed premises for White Marlin tournament week, Aug. 6-12, and Bike Week, Sept. 13-16.

not needed to be so close. More liquor stores would cause a decrease in business for the ones already in business and the county liquor stores were already seeing a 6 percent decline in sales, Cowger said. County attorney Sonny Bloxom also spoke against Sibony’s request. County liquor dispensary profits are split 50-50 between the county and the town of Ocean City and each of those

would see their amounts decreased, Bloxom said. Furthermore, he said, if the county granted Sibony’s request, the board would set a precedent for liquor stores to be located every four blocks. Cosby continued to push the public safety issue, but to no avail. “The public is adequately served,” said board member Charles Nichols, who added that existing liquor stores would be adversely affected and there was no uniqueness in the property.

At age 48, Long said, he feels “out of place any place in Ocean City.” He wanted music from the 1950s, or even earlier, through the 1980s. Some of it would be live and some would be recorded. “It’s gotta be before ‘90,” he said. “I encourage people to bring in records.” Customers could also take 8-track tapes and old vinyl records. “It’s all about the music,” Long said. “There will never be any hip hop or rap.” Long also planned to have customers participate in the decoration of the Retro Music Hall. They could take almost anything to be used for decoration and it would be tagged and placed somewhere. Although Long and Marshall talked about the uniqueness of the proposed new business, board member Charles Nichols said they had failed to show a public need for the alcoholic beverage license and the other two board members concurred. Long did not say what he plans to do next. Pulse, originally planned as a New York City-style club with a dress code, went out of business after two years. Before Pulse, the building was the site of Scandals, a rock venue, and Samantha’s, an upscale nightclub.

Cash prizes will be awarded for marlin, sailfish, spearfish and swordfish releases, as well as the largest tuna and dolphin brought to the Sunset Marina scale. “Fishing this past weekend was pretty good. There’s been good tuna fishing and the highlight is that some big eyes are around. A few 200pounders were caught last weekend. There are some blue marlin out there and some whites, too,” said Marlin Club President and tournament director Franky Pettolina. “There’s a lot of potential for this weekend. Providing the weather is OK, we should have some good fishing.” 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.

Great marlin fishing and good tuna fishing, too,” Pettolina said after the competition. Sixteen billfish were released during the 2010 tournament, the most ever for the event. In 2011, 37 whites and one blue marlin were released. For more information, call the Marlin Club at 410-213-1613.

(June 29, 2012) Forty teams headed out to sea last week during the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association’s 23rd annual Tuna-Ment Tournament. “Last year we had 30 boats, so we’re pleased with the increase. Two years in a row now we’ve seen an increase,” Dave Smith, executive director of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association, said of the June 22-24 event. “I thought the tournament went great. The yellowfin bite was turned on the whole weekend and a couple big eyes were caught.” Sunset Marina in West Ocean City was one of three official weigh-in stations. The others were Wachapreague Seaside Marina in Wachapreague, Va., and Curtis Merritt Marina in Chincoteague, Va. Tuna was the main division for the tournament. John Travers, captain of the Crabby, took first place in the single heaviest division with a 228.9-pound big eye brought to the Curtis Merritt Marina scale. The fish was worth $5,000. The crew also won an additional $910 for combined weight of the big eye and a 50.2-pound yellowfin, through added entry level “tournament within a tournament” calcuttas. The Lady Luck, owned by Steve Ramsey, brought the second-place tuna to the Sunset Marina scale. The 207.9-pound big eye earned the team $2,200.

Survey shows delinquency pushes attitudes over the edge LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer

A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING O.C.Trading stocked with unique gifts, treasures LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 29, 2012) For Ocean City residents and visitors who are looking for unique, one-of-a-kind gifts, O.C. Trading Co., on Baltimore Ave. and Somerset Street in downtown Ocean City, might just be the place to find them. “We have a little bit of everything. We tried to bring a worldwide presence into the store and offer things you can’t find anywhere else,” said O.C. Trading Co. President Ollie Powell. “I want everyone to find something unique. Every time you come in, you’ll see something new.” At the start of the year, Powell noticed a sign that the landmark building, once home to Ocean City’s first post office, announcing the unit was available for lease. “It was a neat building and I fell in love with it right away,” he said. “This place is extremely unique. There’s a nice, positive energy here.” Powell and his girlfriend, Assunta Siniscalchi, took over the space in February and began renovations. He asked her to marry him on the front steps on her birthday, Feb. 24. Powell, a retired Marine, completed the remodeling work himself. The walls and trim were painted, new ceiling tile was added and “life” was fed back to the hardwood floor, he said. The store opened in mid-May. “The owners have done a nice job of exposing the original wood flooring in this older building,” said Glenn Irwin, executive director of the Ocean City Development Corporation. The non-profit organization aims to revitalize the downtown area. Powell, who was born and raised in the area and graduated from Stephen Decatur High School in 1991, has been collecting items for years from auctions, yard sales


O.C. Trading Co. President, Ollie Powell, left, is joined by Drex Harrington on Tuesday at the downtown store. The shop, located on the corner of Baltimore Avenue and Somerset Street, above left, offers antiques, musical instruments, artwork, jewelry, Ocean City souvenirs, historic memorabilia, clothing and beach gear, among other items. There is also an area for artists to paint and draw, below. Unfinished pieces can be stored in the back room until artists return to work on them.

and flea markets. The store is filled with an assortment of merchandise including antiques, musical instruments, artwork, jewelry, Ocean City souvenirs, historic memorabilia, clothing and beach gear. “The O.C. Trading Co. has a nice variety of items for any person. It’s an interesting store to just walk around in,” Irwin said. “It’s on a very visible corner in downtown Ocean City, which gets lots of foot traffic.” Powell also rents consignment space to those who want to sell their wares. To rent a space or to consign items, call the store at 443-664-2512. He will also trade and barter items. “We want happy customers. We want people to get a good deal and leave with a smile on their face,” Powell said. “We’re trying to provide a positive service to the community. Return customers are what we’re all about.” On Fridays from 7-9 p.m., Powell hosts open jam sessions. All musicians are welcome. Some instruments are available, but musicians are encouraged to take their own. A station has been set up in the store for artists to paint and draw. Unfinished pieces can be stored in the back room until artists return to work on them. Powell, who is a painter, would like to have artists gather and create artwork together outside of the

store on the Somerset Street Plaza. “We’re trying to have a fun, artistic atmosphere. We want to make the downtown a fun place,” Powell said. Powell plans to hang a canvas screen for free movie and game nights. In the mornings, Powell is a commercial fisherman and crabber. After being on the water all day, he then comes to work at the store. In the near future, customers will be able to place seafood and crab orders at the store to purchase what Powell and other local fishermen have caught. “This space has so many opportunities. The possibilities are endless here, we’re just trying to pace ourselves,” he said. Store hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. It is open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

(June 29, 2012) Fannie Mae’s 2012 National Housing Survey conducted an oversample of delinquent borrowers in an effort to provide more information to assess homeowner attitudes for the oftentimes hard to reach delinquent borrower population. These findings, released earlier this month, showed (not too surprisingly) that once a borrower becomes delinquent, their attitudes about homeownership, household finances and paying their mortgage become significantly more negative than the general population of people with mortgages — even significantly more than those who are underwater and those who have experienced home value declines. Record numbers of homeowners throughout the country are experiencing being “underwater” on their mortgage (when a home is worth less than the amount owed on its mortgage). As part of the housing recovery effort, policy makers have taken steps to address the challenges facing these homeowners in an effort to develop policy changes and programs that will help the housing market rebound. One of the questions on the survey, for example, was, “If a person’s house is now worth less than what they owe on it, do you think it’s OK for them to stop paying their mortgage?” The delinquent borrower percentage of “yes” answers was 23 percent as compared to the non-distressed mortgage holder where only 9 percent answered “yes.” “Results indicate that helping keep mortgage borrowers current on their mortgage is a beneficial goal since the negative attitudes resulting from delinquency for the borrower (and those they influence) may be hard to repair and could evolve into ingrained delinquency behaviors,” said Doug Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist of Fannie Mae. The Fannie Mae National Housing Survey polls homeowners and renters to assess their confidence in homeownership as an investment, the current state of their household finances, views on the U.S. housing finance system, and overall confidence in the economy. They release both monthly and quarterly reports and can be found at — Lauren Bunting is a member of the Coastal Association of Realtors and a licensed REALTOR®with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

OC police confiscate handguns from man on separate occasions NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (June 29, 2012) Ocean City police found a handgun in a man’s clothing bag Friday and removed another handgun from the small of a man’s back the next day. The first handgun, a loaded .38 caliber weapon, was found June 22 during a

search of a man’s clothing bag after a traffic stop at about 10:30 p.m. at 61st Street because the driver had been driving backwards for about 100 feet. The three men in the Honda station wagon, all from Pennsylvania, told police they were in Ocean City for the night, but had no place to stay. A policeman ran warrant checks on all three men and learned of a warrant from

the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department for a violation of parole on possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute charge for one of the men. He then took Matthew Ray Quinones-Torres into custody. Another policeman discovered marijuana wrapped in several dollar bills in Quinones-Torres’ pants pocket. After the other two men, Jason Maldonado, 26, and Davontaye Harrison, 19,

exited the vehicle, police found marijuana and paraphernalia in the car and charged them accordingly. Police then found a loaded .38 caliber handgun in Maldonado’s Jeep bag. Maldonado was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and having a handgun in a vehicle. Police learned the handgun had been stolen from Lancaster County in March 2011. The next day at about 2:30 a.m., a man approached a policeman on Baltimore Avenue near Ninth Street and said another man on a shared hotel balcony had threatened him with a handgun. The man said he had been sitting on a chair on the balcony when Quinones-Torres told him he had better not start anything because he was armed. He then turned his back, lifted his shirt and displayed a handgun in the small of his back. Several officers were called to the area, spotted Quinones-Torres and arrested him at gunpoint.

Live music, contests and, of course, fireworks lined up Wednesday. Independence Day is going to be a blast!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT By Deborah Lee Walker PAGE 73



LISA CAPITELLI n Assistant Editor (June 29, 2012) An array of activities, including concerts, a hot dog-eating contest, swimming and, to top it all off, fireworks, will take place on July 4, in the resort and its surrounding communities to celebrate Independence Day.

OCEAN CITY: n Downtown concert: The 78th Army Band, one of the premier musical organizations of the 99th United States Army Reserve Support Command, will perform a free concert on the beach at North Division Street in downtown Ocean City at 8 p.m. Wednesday. In addition to its ceremonial and concert bands, the 78th Army Band also features a Jazz Combo, Brass Quintet, Dixieland Band and Rock Band. A fireworks display will start at approximately 9:30 p.m. The show will be visible from all along the Boardwalk and the beach. Viewers are encouraged to take blankets or chairs. n Uptown concert: The United States Army Downrange Band will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday at Northside Park on 125th Street. The concert will feature a collection of rock, country and R&B tunes as well as signature patriotic arrangements. Fireworks, shot from the west side of the park, will begin around 9:30 p.m. “July 4 is one of the biggest holiday events of the year in Ocean City, if not the biggest,” said Donna Abbott, Ocean City tourism director and communications manager. “The town is ready with two great locations to enjoy a free concert and fireworks displays, downtown and uptown.” Since parking will be limited at Northside Park and in the downtown area, organizers of the resort events recommend visitors use the bus. Guests can ride all day for $3 or pay $1 per boarding. Buses operate 24 hours a day. The West Ocean City Park and Ride on Route 50 offers free parking and $3 ride-all-day shuttle service to the downtown area.

n Hot dog-eating contest: Only a few days remain to qualify for Fish Tales Bar & Grill’s fifth annual “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. As of Monday, spots were still available. “I’d like to see the local guys come out and give it a try. It makes it more fun,”

said Brandon Hemp, Fish Tales manager and contest coordinator. A stage will be assembled in the parking lot of Fish Tales for the competitive eaters who advanced to the main event, which is modeled after Nathan’s famous Fourth of July international contest. Fish Tales and Coors Light are sponsoring the event. Dietz & Watson will supply the hot dogs. David “Tiger Wings & Things” Brunelli of Philadelphia, a member of the World League of Competitive Eating, earned first-place honors last year, after he devoured 22 franks and buns in 10 minutes. He received $1,000 and a trophy. Ocean City resident JD Kisner, a Fish Tales bartender, finished second, eating 19-and-a-quarter hot dogs. He won $500. See POOL on Page 76

Local farmers’markets bring community closer to nature’s gifts NATHAN LENOX n Intern (June 29, 2012) In areas all over the country, farmers’ markets offer an opportunity for people to obtain produce directly from the person who cultivated it. From flowers to baked goods, these local, down-to-earth farmers bury the seeds, tend the plants and harvest and sell the produce directly to the consumer. Loyal groups of consumers continuously purchase their goods on the basis of quality, knowledge and personal connection. In Berlin, on the corner of West and Main streets, one such farmers’ market operates with chipper enthusiasm every Wednesday from 2-6 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Another has recently opened in Ocean Pines at White Horse Park and is held every Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon. The farmers who bring their produce to market offer what many grocery stores and retail markets lack — personal connection to the community, food and consumer. Each farmer has developed produce from seed to stand with the intention of bringing it from their field to the consumer’s hand minus the middleman. Every egg is taken directly from the nest and put into a carton by hand. Every carrot is planted, pulled from the ground, and bundled by hand; and, every farmer has a connection to the community, his customers, the earth they work and the other farmers. Each farmer pays a seasonal fee through the local Chamber of

Commerce so he can set up his stand and sell produce in the community. One of the farmers, Stefanie Barfield, who co-operates Chesterfield Heirlooms, a stand that offers “old world versions of modern vegetables,” described her connection to the community. “It’s great to get face-time with customers, to see people who come back, or tourists who stop in, and to get feedback from people who say things like, ‘Oh I re-

ally liked this!’” Chesterfield Heirlooms began as a hobby for Stef and her husband in Pittsville, but blossomed from a backyard garden to a full-time passion in 2010. “We’re here every Friday, and we even sell to different restaurants,” she said. Area restaurants are beginning to see the benefits of buying local and supporting the communities of which they are a part with Farm to Table. Restaurants participating in Farm to Table are now buy-

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Don’t let those negative attitudes that have sprung up around you drain your energies. Shrug them off, and move ahead with the confidence that you can get the job done. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Aspects favor some dedicated fun time for the hardworking Piscean. A nice, refreshing plunge into the social swim can recharge your physical and emotional batteries. BORN THIS WEEK: You love to travel and be with people. You probably would be happy as a social director on a cruise ship.

Resort museum provides free summer programs LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (June 29, 2012) The Ocean City LifeSaving Station Museum’s annual summer educational programs begin next week and will feature a variety of topics, including beach safety, resort history, knot tying, U.S. Life-Saving Service, sharks and local marine life. The approximately 30-minute informative programs will be held at 10 a.m., Monday through Saturday, July 2 through Aug. 25. Most of the programs will take place in front of the tram station, near the museum at the south end of the Boardwalk. “We have the same programs and we hope they will be as popular as they have been in the past,” said museum curator Sandra Hurley. Although the activities offered have changed a bit or been modified, the current line-up has remained the same for about 13 years. The Storm Warriors program is the newest addition, added in 2006. The late Dorothy G. Mumford, a lifelong resident of Ocean City, founding member of the Ocean City Museum Society and former Ocean City School teacher, started the programs in the 1980s, according to Hurley. The first one she developed and hosted told the story of a pony, Misty of Chincoteague. The Monday sessions will feature representatives of the Ocean City Beach Patrol. Surf rescue technicians will discuss

On Saturdays during the summer, the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum’s educational program focuses on feeding time at the aquarium. Visitors can step inside the aquarium room of the museum, located on the southern end of the Boardwalk, and catch a glimpse of what lives in the water surrounding Ocean City and watch the creatures eat. (Above) Sandy Hurley, curator of the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum, introduces guests to the resident horseshoe crab.

life-saving techniques, the equipment they use, rip currents, water safety, rules of the beach, surfing spots and the importance of sunscreen, among other topics. Kristin Joson, OCBP Web editor/public relations coordinator, said one of the most important things the beach patrol wants beachgoers to know is, “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand” and never swim when lifeguards are not on duty. The OCBP is on duty from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day.

On Tuesdays, visitors will hear about the history of the town and how it grew from a small fishing village into the multimillion-dollar resort it is today. During the session dubbed “Ocean City Before Condominiums,” museum board member Bob Stevens will display photos, discuss the history of the town, its development and how women played a role in creating what was once called the “Ladies Resort to the Ocean.” See DAILY on Page 80

Retirees lucky to have so many places serving ‘home cooked’ meals SENIOR SLANT

MAC Center offers lunch four days a week on 41st St. IRISH KEMP ■ Contributing Writer (June 29, 2012) Jill of all trades master of none. Sorta late in life, but I now know one more thing that ain’t my game — gardening! I unwittingly discovered that I can still get down, but I can’t get up. In full view of a guy driving by, this old broad leaned over to pull up a bodaciously humongous weed in the front yard and ended up falling, face down, on top of it. The last thing I remembered was the guy’s eyes looking like a deer’s caught in the headlights, staring in disbelief. He never stopped, but not to worry, I’m sure he took longer to recover his equilibrium than moi. Skeptics will never believe this, but in my dazed state, I actually witnessed six leprechauns underground sitting on toadstools around a tiny table playing Old Maids. H’mm, maybe it was War? Oh yeah, folks, I’m losing it. It’s great to see the sister act energy bunnies, Mary Ellen O’Brien and Theresa Nolan, back in town. They’re just in time


Spending some quality time, from left, are Neil, Lee, Vivian and Stan.

to promote my campaign to get the adultplus folks to hop on the town’s social merry-go-round. Improvising, socializing and exercising is what it’s all about. Local retirees are so lucky to have so many cool places where “home cooked” meals are available on a daily basis, such as the local Elks and Knights of Columbus clubs. The MAC Center, at 41st Street and bay, offers a reasonably priced nutritious lunch four days a week, plus a boatload of other amenities, such as an exercise room, card games, art lessons, etc. Did I mention the opportunity to meet new friends, the

likes of club director Anne, Barbara Giles, art teacher Jody Vaeder, Sarah Gray, Jim and Mary Moeller and Lux Luxenberger? The guys, all the way from Ocean Pines, who hang around the pool tables are on the lookout for new victims. They’re fishing to catch a few sharks. Sorry, guys, I lost the scrap of paper with your names on it. Absolutely free membership at this adult-plus center makes it a cool place to hang out on hot day. You might even find yourself starring in a play. My generation’s love of music, socializing, dining out and dancing could be the

key to how and why so many of us made it to and through the golden years. Fun flies when you take the time. Watching the boob tube’s zillion-plus channels could make for an infinity of boredom. Ask the folks who are unable to go out and have to rely on the TV for entertainment. Wise folks, they urge me to tell newcomers to get involved and not to wait until it’s too late, health-wise and strength-wise, to circulate.

OC Beach Patrol reminds visitors to always swim near lifeguard ON GUARD

Guards on duty daily, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. KRISTIN JOSON ■ Contributing Writer (June 29, 2012) “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand!” This is not just a catchy slogan — it is a helpful reminder that swimming in unguarded water is never a good idea. Although this advice applies to pools, it is even more important when swimming in open water such as lakes, rivers and oceans, which have uneven bottoms, changing currents and sudden drop-offs and changes in depth. People tend to leave their cares, concerns and common sense behind them

when they come to the beach. No one can blame them; vacationers have worked hard and they simply want to enjoy their time by the ocean. Most people believe that nothing bad is going to happen while they are on vacation and that they will never be the unfortunate victim of an accident or injury while enjoying a day at the beach. The possibility of a tragedy occurring with a loved one is the furthest thing from their mind when they choose to go swimming without a lifeguard. However, it is important to remember that the ocean is not just a fun place to spend a vacation — it is a natural, ever changing dynamic environment, and like all natural phenomena, if it is not treated respectfully it can be deadly. There are sad stories about people who have lost their

lives because they chose to swim at night or in the early morning without anyone to guard them. We have already had 10 instances this summer of people who had to be rescued when lifeguards were not on duty. Many times these situations when people choose to swim when guards are not on duty end in a tragedy. Even experienced swimmers and surfers have lost their lives swimming alone with no one to help them when things go wrong. Lifeguards and people dedicated to water/beach safety feel frustrated by these stories. There is no need for anyone to lose a family member on vacation. It is a tragedy that could be so easily avoided. The ocean is constantly moving and changing. To the untrained eye it can look calm and safe, but currents on the calmest day can still be dangerous. Never be shy about asking lifeguards about water conditions. Their job is to recognize the dan-

ger and educate beach patrons about it. If you hear them blow their whistle, look and see whom they might be trying to communicate with. It could be you. The lifeguards will use their flags to direct you out of harms way. Last summer we saw a lot of wildlife activity out in the ocean. There were whale sightings and dolphins traveling close to shore. Although these creatures aren’t normally harmful to humans, it’s safer to simply move out of their way and let them pass. Lifeguards have a better view of what is going on from their guard stand and will move you away from the less dangerous occurrences such as these and the more dangerous situations such as rip currents. The beach patrol also enforces rules, ordinances and regulations that I am sure some of you find annoying, but each regulation has been put in place for a reason. See BEACH PATROL on Page 65

Beach patrol responsible for maintaining safe environment ON GUARD Continued from Page 64

The beach patrol is responsible for maintaining a safe, secure and enjoyable environment for all of our visitors and ensuring that they may enjoy their vacation time. Please remember that if the lifeguard asks you to play ball at the back of the beach, fill in a hole, or move an umbrella out of his line of sight, he is doing this to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable beach experience and can return for many more. We hope you enjoy your time here in Ocean City. Follow the directions of the lifeguards and never underestimate the awesome power of the ocean. Never swim alone or when lifeguards are not on duty. Remember our slogan and pass it on to family, friends or anyone whose life you value: “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand!” n Captain’s Note: Every member of the beach patrol is fully tested and certified before they ever have the privilege of guarding you or your loved ones. In fact, the bottom line that determines if I offer them a job is a positive response to the question: “Would I trust them to guard someone in my family?” However, even with the most highly qualified and expertly trained lifeguards on the stands, we still need your help. If you are not a highly skilled swimmer with

ocean experience, remain close to shore. It takes even the fastest runner and swimmer some time to get to you and the farther out you are in trouble, the more time it takes for us to help you. Never rely on an artificial flotation device in place of actual swimming ability. These devices just give swimmers a false sense of security, because in the surf that flotation could be lost and suddenly make the user an actively drowning victim. The ocean and beach are wonderful places to enjoy a summer day; just remember that the ocean is not the same as a neighborhood pool. Our first priority is to keep all beach patrons safe, but we cannot control the ocean. When hazards exist where people are swimming, it is our job to guide them out of harms way or, when necessary, to swim out and assist them back to safety. Our job is made easier when we have their patience, understanding and assistance. Remember, if you hear a whistle, take the time to stop what you are doing and look toward the surf rescue technician who is attempting to get someone’s attention. It might be you and if you need help, you should wave your arms over your head indicating to the SRT that you need their assistance. To help us keep you safe, always check in with the lifeguard on the stand and never go in the ocean if the beach patrol is not on duty.


Each year, the veteran (returning) guards re-qualify and re-certify so that you can be sure that every guard on the stand continues to meet all of our rigorous physical standards and training requirements. Surf rescue technicians have to complete a 300-meter soft sand sprint in 65 or fewer seconds and complete a 500-meter swim in fewer than 10 minutes. Crew Chief Greg Evanoff re-qualified last Saturday with a time of 6.25 for the swim.

Jesse’s Paddle fundraiser on July 21 to benefit suicide prevention (June 29, 2012) Dozens of canoes and kayaks will fill the Pocomoke River in Snow Hill on Saturday, July 21, in support of the Jesse Klump Memorial Fund. The event, “Jesse’s Paddle,” supports the non-profit fund in its effort to end youth suicide, host support groups for survivors of suicide victims and to provide scholarships to Snow Hill High School graduates. Besides great boating, there will be live music, food, beverages and a silent auction Participants ask their friends, family members and colleagues to “sponsor” them and 100 percent of the pledges goes

to the missions. “Absolutely everything — the prizes, the beverages and snacks, the canoes, kayaks and the live music — is donated,” said fund Treasurer Ron Pilling. Past paddles supported the Worcester County Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program and provided for a $12,000 scholarship in both 2011 and 2012. Paddlers leave the dock and search for three “clues,” which reveal facts about youth suicide and are exchanged for prizes. The entire route covers less than two miles of the most beautiful river on the Eastern Shore.

“While youth suicide is not exactly a joyful topic,” Pilling said, “we think it more than appropriate to have some fun while raising money to end it.” “Gathering pledges is key to our ability to teach suicide ‘first aid’ and Jesse’s Paddle is our most important annual fundraiser,” said suicide prevention Program Manager Hope Hutira-Green. Hutira-Green speaks at schools, churches and community organizations about suicide prevention and distributes awareness and prevention literature countywide. Worcester County suffers from suicide rates higher than both state and national averages.

The Paddle begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 21, at the canoe company next to the drawbridge in Snow Hill. If paddlers need a canoe, a standup paddleboard, a two-person kayak or a solo kayak, they should call the shop at 410-632-3971 to reserve one in advance. Participants are encouraged to take their own boat if they have one. “We welcome anyone to paddle with us, or to support us with a tax-deductible donation,” said Pilling. Forms for collecting pledges, information on the Paddle and the scholarship, are available by calling 443-982-2716 or visiting

Taylor House to host Chesapeake Brass Band next weekend (June 29, 2012) The Berlin Heritage Foundation’s second Concert on the Lawn of the season, set for Sunday, July 8, will feature the Chesapeake Brass Band. The 6 p.m. show will take place on the lawn of the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum at 208 N. Main St. in Berlin. Take a chair to enjoy this free concert sponsored by Main Street Berlin. The Chesapeake Brass Band, founded in 1996, is one of the few all-brass concert bands in the United States. The band emulates the British bands formed during the industrial revolution, and also draws inspiration from the Sousa bands popular in the early 1900s. The band is based in Newark, Del., and draws its 35 members from Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The summer concerts feature marches, patriotic numbers, show tunes, big band, swing and blues, with a narrator providing commentary. The band has played throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and in 2007 was featured at the convention of the American Association of Concert Bands in Corning, N.Y. In 2010 and again in 2012, Chesapeake came in second in its division at the North American Brass Band Association Competition. The conductor of Chesapeake is Dr. Russell Murray, professor of music at the University of Delaware. The band has released seven CDs. The museum is open through the end of October on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 1-4 p.m. Group tours are available by appointment. For information, call 410-641-1019 or visit

The Chesapeake Brass Band, one of the few all-brass concert bands in the United States, will perform on the lawn of the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum at 6 p.m. on July 8.

Organic farmers on hand at local markets todiscuss growing ideas Continued from Page 51


Master Gardener Tiffanie Nichols attends farmers markets to answer questions people have about plants, soil, bugs and produce. The free service is made possible by the University of Maryland Extension. (At right) A basket of naturally grown potatoes available at Jay Martin’s “Provident Organic Farm.” Martin uses only natural insecticides such as those made from chrysanthemum flowers to grow his produce.




salad mixes to six restaurants and still takes time to tend her stand at local markets. “This is only my 11th year here but the market has been here forever,” she joked. During her time in the Berlin market, she helped transform it into a producersonly market. Because of hers and others’ efforts, each vendor is now checked for authenticity to make sure he or she is not only cultivating the food as claimed, but that he or she is selling their food. “Less than 20 percent of your stand can be other people’s products,” Jordan said. “It keeps everyone honest. I went to every vendor’s farm and watched how they grew everything, what they used and how they harvested it. Plus, I got some tips from them on how they were doing things and got to share a few of mine!” While everyone is checked for honesty at the door, so-to-speak, others emphasized their connection with the earth and each other due to that legitimacy. Jay Martin of Provident Organic Farm in Bivalve, Md., farming since 1985, uses only naturally organic substances including insecticides like those from chrysanthemum flowers and, along with others, offers the beautiful perspective of the farmers’ market community not always seen from the outside. “Organic farmers want to help each other and share knowledge. Conventional

farming is based on fear. Is there going to be enough rain? Is a bug going to come in and wipe out all my crops? I don’t worry about things like that. Mother Nature has been doing this a lot longer than any of us have and she’s always provided,” he explained, “We’re arrogant to think we know better than Mother Nature. If a bug comes in, I don’t spray everything or freak out; I wait and see what happens. Maybe if a bad bug comes in, that means a good bug will come in and that bad bug will be a food source for him. It’s the attitude and mindset of us that’s most important. You have to honor the ecosystem.” Martin noted Rodale Institute’s founder J.I. Rodale, who coined the term “organic” in 1947. “The Rodale Institute has a saying, ‘Healthy soil makes healthy plants, and

What comes up, comes up, and Mother Nature takes care of the rest.” Elise Jett, of Holly Hill Homemade Goods in Parsonsburg sells her baked goods and other produce that she makes from natural ingredients. “This is our first full-time year,” she described, “We visit six markets a week, I bake everything out of my farm kitchen, and we can everything ourselves.” Most of her baked goods come from family recipes and trial and error, but most importantly, they use all local fruits and vegetables as ingredients. From local honey, to ducks and chickens on her farm, everything sold at her stand comes from the area. “It’s great to have return business, loyal customers, and tourists alike come and enjoy,” she said. While most of the farmers of the area grow everything naturally, others are USDA Certified Organic such as Dave and Cheryl Wiley of Herbs, Spice, Everything Nice of Selbyville, Del. Dave described the process of being certified as “very difficult” and requiring “lots of paperwork and record keeping. “We really try to go the extra mile and educate the community about the benefits of buying local.

Each day she welcomes about 15 to 20 visitors who come to her with issues they might be having, or simply what to do with something. “People come up to me with questions

from, ‘How do I get rid of this bug in my garden?’ to ‘What kind of stuff should I make with this herb?’ or even landscapers who ask me, ‘What plant would really brighten up this lawn?” she said. Some of the other farmers have taken advantage of Nichols and her bright red stand by playing a game Elise Jett of Holly Hill called “Stump the Tiff” where they bring her questions and problems to try and stump her. “The most important thing I want to publicize is that I’m here as a service to the community,” Nichols emphasized, “I’m here to help them and everyone else and it’s free.

‘Mother sauces’ are starting points for making secondary blends FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Each one ‘head’ of its own unique family of sauces DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (June 29, 2012) Cooking sauces can be an intimidating experience. However, once one understands the cooking process; it is easier to make cognizant decisions. Knowledge and experience free the novice chef from being bound by a cookbook and instead allow the individual to trust his own instincts and imagination. The intention to demystify culinary tradition and uncover its true purpose is the basis for today’s discussion. The term “mother sauce” refers to any one of five basic sauces, which are the starting points for making various secondary sauces. They are called mother sauces because each one is like the head of its own unique family of sauces. Béchamel, Veloute, Espagnole, Hollandaise and classic tomato are the glorious “five.” Following is a brief description that allows one to see the distinction and differences. Béchamel is probably the simplest of the mother sauces because it does not require making stock. Milk, flour and butter are the major components. The sauce is made by thickening hot milk with a white roux. It is then flavored with onions, cloves and nutmeg and simmered until it is very

creamy and smooth. Veloute is another relatively simple mother sauce. Veloute is made by thickening white stock with roux and then simmering until it reaches the desired consistency. There are three versions of veloute: chicken, veal and fish. Each of the veloutes forms the basis of its own respective secondary mother sauce. For example, chicken veloute incorporated with cream becomes a supreme sauce. Veal veloute thickened with a liaison of egg yolks and cream becomes an Allemende sauce. And the fish veloute fortified with wine and cream becomes a white wine sauce. The Espagnole sauce, also sometimes called brown sauce, is a more complex mother sauce. Espagnole is made by thickening brown stock with roux. It is also made with tomato puree, celery, carrots, and onions for deeper color and flavor. In addition, the brown stock itself is made from bones that have been roasted, which again adds to the color and aroma. The Espagnole is traditionally refined to produce the rich, delectable sauce called a demi-glaze. The demi-glaze is a starting point for making other various sauces. Hollandaise is a tasty, buttery sauce made by slowly whisking clarified butter into warm egg yolks. Regular butter should be avoided when making Hollandaise. Whole butter contains water and milk solids, which can break the emul-

sion. Clarified butter is pure butterfat, so it helps the emulsion remain stable. Classic tomato is the fifth mother sauce. The sauce resembles the traditional tomato sauce, but it is much more palatable and requires a few more steps to make. Aromatic vegetables rendered in salt pork are the first step in developing a fragrant classic tomato sauce. Then one adds tomatoes, stock and a ham bone and bakes in the oven at a low temperature for three hours. This process develops rich flavors and much more depth, which results in a delicious tomato sauce. Traditionally, the sauce was thickened with a roux and some chefs still prepare it this way. But in reality, the tomatoes themselves are enough to thicken the sauce. Pasta is a favorite dish year-round. Linguini nestled on a grilled portabella cap, embellished with creamy, wild mushroom sauce makes a stunning appetizer or main course. The dish is not calorie-free, but it is well worth every bite! Linguini Nestled on a Grilled Portabella Cap, Embellished with Creamy, Wild Mushroom Sauce 8 ounces linguini 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 1/2 pounds assorted wild mushrooms, stems trimmed and thinly sliced 6 portabella caps 1/4 cup shallots, minced 2 large cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup good quality chicken stock 1/2 cup dry white wine 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried Herbs de Province 2 cups heavy cream 2/3 cup good quality Parmesan cheese splash fresh lemon juice kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste 1. Grill portabella caps over charcoal grill. Set aside. 2. In a large pot of salted water, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside. 3. In a large sauté pan, heat the butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic and onions for 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and continue cooking for another for 3 to 4 minutes, constantly stirring. 4. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the cheese), turn the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients. 5. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens. Add cheese and continue to simmer for another 2 minutes. 6. Add the pasta and cook until the pasta is heated through, about 1 minute. 7. Serve mushroom pasta over portabella cap. Serves 6 appetizer portions Secret Ingredient: Confidence. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” … Eleanor Roosevelt.

Hurley will lead Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;All About Sharksâ&#x20AC;? program. She will present facts and history about sharks, discuss the variety of species, how they find their prey and what makes them different from other fish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like everyone loves sharks, especially kids. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just fascinating creatures that people find so interesting,â&#x20AC;?

Hands-on knot tying a favorite Hurley said. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there regarding sharks.” Visitors can view the replica of the 1,210-pound tiger shark caught in the waters off the coast of Ocean City on July 9, 1983. She will also show skeletal jaws, fins and teeth, and share artifacts about the species. On Fridays, Tom Wimbrow, vice president of the museum board of directors, will present the “Storm Warriors” program. Wimbrow will discuss what it was like to serve in the U.S. Life-Saving Service, one of the forerunners of the Coast Guard, the duties they had, the equipment they used and experiences the men faced in the 1870s through early 1900s. “We try to give them the basic understanding of what it was like to be a member of the United States Life-Saving Service,” he said. Participants will tour the museum’s boat room, where they will see a rare apparatus cart, surfboat and life-car, Lyle guns and a breaches buoy, among numerous artifacts. “The museum is one of the few places where you can see a complete set of equipment all in one room. And, it’s all original,” he said. After the program, participants can answer a few questions to receive a replica badge worn by surfmen and a certificate of completion to become “Junior Surfmen.” Saturdays will focus on feeding time at the aquarium. Visitors will step inside the museum’s aquarium room to catch a

glimpse of what lives in the water surrounding Ocean City and the Coastal Bays and watch the creatures eat. Hurley said she typically starts by talking about and feeding the small seahorses. Guests enjoy seeing the sheepshead fish eat, she said, because of its large size and that it has such sharp teeth. The room has two 250-gallon tanks and several smaller ones filled with creatures such as toadfish, horseshoe crab, Blue crab and an American eel, among others. Hurley will discuss the sea creatures, focusing on what and how they eat. Children will also have an opportunity to feed them. While the programs are free, admission to the museum costs $3 for adults, $2 for seniors (62 and over) and active military and $1 for children ages 6-17. Children 5 and younger are admitted free. The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is part of Blue Star Museums, a program that offers free admission for all active duty, National Guard and reserve military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Museum exhibits include Davy Jones’ Locker, the aquarium room, Sands from Around the World and The Boardwalk of Yesterday, among others. The museum’s newest exhibit, “Surf’s Up,” opened June 20, and chronicles the history of surfing in Ocean City. For more information, visit, call 410-289-4991 or e-mail
