SENTENCED Edwards faces 20 years behind bars for running over 7-Eleven clerk NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) The 65year-old Ocean City man who intentionally drove his car over a clerk at the 139th Street 7-Eleven last year because he thought he had been given the wrong change was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison. “What you did was a vicious and brutal attack on Mr. Curry,” Judge Thomas C. Groton III told Richard Lee Edwards before sentencing him. “It was a complete disregard for the sanctity of human life.” Groton said he was shocked “that having been run over at least twice, he’s still alive.” The judge recounted what transpired at the 7-Eleven

COASTAL EMERGENCY

Ocean City firefighters were forced to dump a load of trash in Coastal Highway’s bus lane Tuesday morning, and then hose it down outside the Oyster Bay shopping center on Jamestown Road after the garbage was discovered to be on fire. According to Public Works truck drivers, trash heaps have caught fire before, typically due to the dumping of charcoal that barbecue enthusiasts believe to be extinguished, but which is in fact still smoldering.

The City Council made a

5-2 decision Monday night to change the city’s municipal election to coincide with the federal date, but declined to move towards combining the city ballot and polling system with the larger contest.

Union petition submitted, likely to be on ballot in new Nov. date ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) The organization pushing for a public employees’ union in Ocean City has submitted its petition to have collective bargaining rights put on this year’s ballot, meaning that unionization will most likely appear as a referendum in the November municipal contest, the first city contest, incidentally, that will coincide with the Nov. 6 national election, since the City Council voted this week to move its elections from the traditional October to the federal date. According to City Clerk Kelly Allmond, the petition was filed on June 28, and it appears, at least preliminarily, the petitioners “have well over” the number of signatures required to get the issue to ballot. While Ocean City’s Police and Fire Departments are unionized, its general employees are not. The city’s charter prohibits collective bargaining with any organization other than those representing the two departments. The charter can only be changed with the approval of City Council or the approval of the voters via referendum, which first requires petitioning. According to City Solicitor Guy Ayres, Maryland state law stipulates that city charters can only be put to referendum if 20 percent of registered voters sign the petition. In May, a storefront was established in the Food Lion shopping center on 118th Street for an organization calling itself the Ocean City Employee Coalition. While the

group itself consists of city workers, organizers said that the Maryland Classified Employees Association, which has helped organize collective bargaining for public employees around the state, would be sponsoring and coordinating the union drive. The MCEA is affiliated with the larger American Federation of Teachers, itself an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). Organizers said that the AFT was providing the bulk of support, particularly in recruiting outside signature-gatherers to canvass during times that city employees themselves could not. Allmond said that the Worcester County Board of Elections provided her with an audit – updated as of June 25 – that showed 6,034 registered voters in Ocean City. This would mean the petition would require around 1,200 signatures, but it claims to have many more than that. “We received a letter from Greg DeMarco along with the petitions, and he reports that there are now 2,356 signatures,” Allmond said. In April, DeMarco, a city Parks and Recreation employee, appeared before the council to condemn the voting majority for what he called a “vicious assault” on municipal workers, citing changes in retirement benefits, as well as the dismissal of City Manager Dennis Dare, as reasons for employee dissatisfaction and a desire for unionization. Allmond said that the city will first have

to review the petition to verify that all the signatories are indeed current registered voters in the municipality. “On Monday, July 9, the Board of Election Supervisors will meet to scrutinize it,” Allmond said. “In the meantime, I have to get all those names and add them into a database.” The City Clerk’s office will be working as fast as possible to complete the job. “We should be able to report our findings for the July 16 council meeting,” Allmond said. At Monday’s City Council meeting, Councilman Joe Hall became the second elected official, along with colleague Brent Ashley, to announce that he does not support the unionization effort. “I want to make it clear to the voters and city that I did not sign that petition and I do not support…collective bargaining,” Hall said. “When we made the changes in compensation, there were a lot of statements made to the effect that we wouldn’t get people to apply and we wouldn’t get qualified applicants,” he said in reference to the restructuring that DeMarco condemned. “But since those changes, the number of applicants has never been higher, and the qualifications of them have never been better. I believe the change [to collective bargaining] is just not warranted.” On Monday, City Council made a 5-2 vote – with Hall and Ashley opposed – to change the city’s election date to match the federal contest in November, with increasing voter turnout was the rationale most cited.

(June 6, 2012) A presentation about the cigarette butt problem on the city’s beaches had elected officials saying that a discussion about making Ocean City’s beaches smoke-free or smoking-restricted may be coming in the near future. Terry Steimer of the Ocean City Surfrider Foundation appeared before council to ask for its continued support for the foundation’s pilot program of placing cigarette butt receptacles on the beach. Steimer noted that the foundation had originally placed 200 receptacles last year, although many were stolen, damaged, or otherwise lost. Altogether, 146 now remain, and roughly 39,000 butts have been collected thus far. Although council was supportive of the measure, some seemed to think that it was not effective enough. “Probably the only way you could direct people to these areas to use the cans is to prohibit it [smoking] in other areas,” Meehan said. “We need to consider being a smoke-free beach … it’s just the way the country is going.” “I think it’s a feel-good to [have the receptacles]. It’s a minimal success, but it points out that it is an issue,” Meehan continued. “I have to say I don’t agree,” replied Steimer. “It’s a little too early to say that, until you let this program work for a few years.”

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Cigarette receptacles like this one have been placed on the beach under a pilot program by the Ocean City Surfrider Foundation and the town’s Public Works department.

“In some small way it does its part, but the bigger issue is still out there,” Meehan responded. “Smoking, as an example for kids, is horrible. I’m a non-smoker and it really offends me when I get right behind someone on the beach [who is smoking],” said Council President Jim Hall. “I would hope we develop very soon at least some smoke-free areas for those who want them. But I applaud your effort to at least corral people around the cans,” he said to Steimer. Councilman Joe Hall said he had envisioned something more substantial than the plastic butt receptacles, such as steel barrels with small cigarette-sized holes

drilled in them “that would be more stable and could be painted and more visible.” However, Steimer said that he and Public Works maintenance head Dick Malone had experimented with such barrels, but they hadn’t worked out. “They [beachgoers] filled them with trash, and when there wasn’t enough space they piled it on top,” Steimer said. Throwing out another idea, Councilman Hall suggested allowing smoking only behind the lifeguards’ stands. “That way we could say that if the guard sees it, you can’t do it. It would at least keep it off the front of the beach where most the kids are,” he said. Steimer also said that some recent events had been hard on beach cleanliness. “We can’t allow big events to get the best of us and lose sight of them,” he said, noting in particular the screw-off beer caps that had accumulated around vendor booths at the recent Ocean City Air Show. “You put this screw-top on the beach, it becomes a danger to the tourists…the last thing we want is for some child to cut their foot,” Steimer said. “I expect, Surfrider expects, and I hope you expect that a vendor who comes down and makes money off that beach will leave it as pristine as it was. We need to do something to tighten up large events.” “I do agree with the direction Terry is going on this,” said Meehan. “They [event promoters] need to give a deposit, and if we have to go back out and clean the area more than we would normally clean other areas, they need to know that it will be forfeit.”

Film team looks to resort for ’80s nostalgia as well as investors Director says Ocean City ‘like a magical time warp,’ easier to recreate period ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) Looks are one thing – but when a place tastes the same, you know it’s kept its street cred. “We were talking about how you’d get a place like the Paul Revere Smorgasbord to look like it was back in the 80s,” said director Michael Tully. “Then I realized the Paul Revere actually is just like it was in the ’80s. I think it’s even the same mac and cheese.” Tully, along with several of his collaborating producers, held a reception last

Thursday night at the 33rd Street Hilton to introduce the idea of his next movie – “Ping Pong Summer,” starring Susan Sarandon – to city officials and business leaders. And while there was some trepidation on the locals’ part about investing in an independent film, Tully and his backers sought to make good on their promise that the project was not just out fishing for money from any beach town. Ocean City, at least for Hollywood, has an ultimate, inimitable value: nostalgia. “I’ve been writing this movie since I was 18, since I was a senior in high school,” said Tully, whose 38th birthday, incidentally, was the evening of the reception. “It’s really about the summer I wish I had.” The actual production of the film has been in the works for some time as well. In May, various Hollywood news outlets began reporting that Ping Pong Summer

complex films such as “Silver Jew,” (a documentary about the New York City band, The Silver Jews), “Cocaine Angel,” and Septien, admitted that Ping Pong Summer would be a significant departure for him. Describing the film as a “sincere coming-of-age comedy,” Tully again last Thursday drew parallels to the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, which shares a similar young-underdog theme and has attained a sort of cult status as a standard of the 1980’s childhood experience. “There’s a clear protagonist and a clear antagonist. The plotline itself is fairly formulaic, but the film as a whole is not,” he said. What hasn’t been formulaic, however, is the scramble to secure the production’s funding.

was officially in the works, and that Sarandon had already committed to star in what is said to be the story of one boy’s life-changing family vacation to Ocean City in 1985, involving his dual interests in table tennis and early hip-hop. But as early as January 2011, in an interview with Vice magazine following the Sundance premier of his last film, Septien, Tully was already anticipating the project. “My dream project is a 1980s comedy/drama called Ping Pong Summer, which I describe as ‘Wild Style meets The Karate Kid meets Better Off Dead,’” Tully told the magazine last year. “It will definitely need to be shot in Ocean City, Md.

OCEAN CITY COUNCIL BRIEFS

Police training reimbursement The City Council approved the Ocean City Police Department’s revision of two general orders, which were altered to add language that guarantees the department will be reimbursed for training costs if officers prematurely leave the OCPD. In the case of the first order, additional training for officers who are assigned to special units, OCPD Capt. Greg Guiton said, “The contract is that, when we send somebody away for training and its more than $500 or more than six days, and the employee decides to leave before putting in two years, we would recoup our costs for that.” The second order deals with new recruits, who attend a 24-week academy that costs the department roughly $9,000 – the department specifies that three years of service is sufficient for it to make good on its training investment. In both cases, any time less than that must be reimbursed by the departing employee on a pro-rated basis.

Delmarva Power improvements Jim Smith, senior public affairs manager with Delmarva Power, reported on upgrades the company has been and will be doing in Ocean City. At the 138th Street substation, Delmarva Power will be installing a “static var compensator,”

Summer’s Here... Monthly, Weekly & Daily Rates

which serves as a booster to maintain steady voltage during times of fluctuating demand or system disturbance. The company is also planning to rebuild its transmission lines between 41st and 85th Streets, which will feature galvanized steel poles instead of the traditional wooden supports. Delmarva Power also recently completed the replacement of underground cables and transformer boxes in Montego Bay, and will be doing the same in Caine Woods beginning this fall. “A lot of the initial underground cable that we put in place 30 or 40 years ago is starting to fail,” said Smith. “It’s certainly a lot more challenging going into a mature development than one that was being built.” However, Smith said that the homes in Caine Woods have their hookup infrastructure much more conveniently placed toward the front of the lot, making for easier work and less disturbance for residents.

Financial reporting award Ocean City has been awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association, in recognition of the town’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The award was presented to city Finance Administrator Martha Bennett, who has garnered the distinction for 24 consecutive years. According to the GFOA, the award recognizes annual reports that demonstrate the “spirit of full disclosure” in financial accountability. “It’s an honor to be up here, and it’s not the first time, which is the really good thing,” said Mayor Rick Meehan in presenting Bennett with the certificate.

Ping Pong Summer a ‘passion project’ for Sarandon, Rush says Continued from Page 5

through the Maryland Film Office is essentially booked up, and Ping Pong Summer’s application for dispensation did not make it to the table during the state’s contested budget sessions. This leaves the project with an estimated $300,000 shortfall out of its total $1.5 million budget – difficult to recoup quickly when the project is being funded entirely by private investors whose buyin can be as low as $25,000. To this end, Rush and his co-producers have been soliciting local investors, as well as the town of Ocean City itself, particularly its hefty tourism budget. They stressed the potential of the film to have a very high return for its relatively low budget, given that the cast, including Sarandon, will not be receiving any contract fees and will simply be taking the daily minimum pay allocated to them by the actor’s union scale. For a main character like Sarandon, this is around $200 per day – a great deal considering that the actress’s fees normally start around $3 million per film. “She’s essentially doing it for nothing,” Rush said. “This is a passion project.” “We’re basically doing an $8 million film for $1.5 million,” said producer Jeff Allard, who was, curiously enough, one

of the organizers behind the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. “We don’t want to let this value, especially with this cast, slip through our fingers.” “We have an indie-sized budget with major star power,” added producer Michael Gottwald. “One hundred percent of what you invest will be spent here,” Allard continued. “We’re not asking for a grant. Our goal is to pay back every dollar.” He outlined a breakdown whereby 90 percent of all the film’s revenue will go towards paying back its investors. Once the principal is returned, 50 percent of all future proceeds from the film will go to its backers. But on Thursday, at least, the film’s team emphasized less the money and more their desire to make sure Ocean City itself was on-board with Tully’s 80sretro vision. “We’re not here to say ‘we need money,’ we’re here to meet you guys,” Tully said. “I know in Virginia Beach, growing up, they had to reinvent themselves a couple times,” said Gottwald. “Ocean City knows what it is.” “The business community and the City Council have not let it be overrun, commercially,” said Tully. “I saw one Starbucks, but that was on the other side of the bridge.”

Curry, who had worked at the convenience store for only a few months, told Edwards that he would settle up after cashing out the register, but that did not suit Edwards, who was recorded on a surveillance video leaning across the counter and slapping and hitting Curry. Edwards then went to the parking lot and got into his vehicle, a Cadillac Escalade, while Curry called police and went outside to get his license plate number. Witnesses to the altercation said Edwards got out of his SUV and attacked Curry, punching him in the head until he dropped the phone and fell to the ground. Edwards returned to his Escalade and intentionally drove over Curry at least twice before driving away. “The horror he had to feel being run over,” Groton said. Curry took the stand to describe what happened. He said he had been “hearing the crunching” of his ribs and legs being broken. He was taken flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and then transferred to Shock Trauma, where he was in a coma for seven-and-a-half weeks. He has had multiple surgeries. Because of his injuries, he is unable to interact with his two young sons, ages 6 and 9. “What you did ruined his life,” Groton told Richards. “All because of a dispute over $10.” People spoke on Edwards’ behalf before the sentencing. A woman who had a long-term relationship with him said he needed assistance with his medications. She would place the pills in daily compartments of a pill holder. After Edwards drove over Curry, she went to his house to get the medication box and “it doesn’t appear they were being taken on a daily basis.” After the sentencing, she said Edwards had post-traumatic stress disorder and he had started psychotherapy sessions in January 2011. A neighbor, Clarence Beard, said he had known Edwards for eight or 10 years and had taken trips, including cruises, with him. They often had lunches and dinners together. “He’s been friendly to everybody in the neighborhood,” Beard said. Edwards, represented by defense attorneys E. Scott Collins and Kathleen Smith, said he was “truly sorry. As God is my witness, I did not want this to happen.” In court on April 20, he had entered an Alford plea, which is essentially a guilty plea in which the defendant does not acknowledge guilt, but realized the state has sufficient evidence for a conviction, to first-degree assault and to fail to immediately return and remain at the scene of an accident involving personal injury. Groton declared Edwards a dangerous person and sentenced him to 20 years in prison, with all but 10 years suspended. After his release from prison, Edwards will be on supervised probation for five years and must undergo anger management and mental health counseling. He must make restitution in an amount to be determined by his probation agent. The prison sentence dates from June 9, 2011 , as he has been in the county jail since his arrest.

Dew Tour may sell ‘wrong’ brand of water ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 6, 2012) Like ammonia and bleach, certain things always cause problems when mixed together. But in the city’s case this fall, those two things will be water – and other water. At Monday’s City Council meeting, City Manager David Recor presented a brief item regarding the Dew Tour, the extreme-sports event that will take place in Ocean City this August for its second consecutive year and has been such a boon to the town that it’s earned a marquee on the city’s downtown water tower. “They’re asking to exercise one of our two exceptions to sell their water,” Recor said. And although the request was swiftly approved, it spoke to some long-term foresight by the city in predicting what have been, and hopefully will be, competitive yet lucrative branding opportunities. As of this past April, Ocean City is now a Coca-Cola town. The city was previously franchised by Pepsi Bottling Ventures, via its local outlet in Salisbury, but this year Pepsi was outbid for the rights to the town’s beverages by Coca-Cola Refreshments. The problem, however, is that the Dew Tour is still a Pepsi-sponsored event, even being named for Pepsi’s Mountain Dew soda. “When the Dew Tour came last year, there was no inconsistency in the contract,” explained Parks and Recreation Director Tom Shuster. Shuster is the administrator or the town’s beverage contract – logical,

given that the primary incentive of the contract is the exclusive right to sell Coca-Cola products in the vending machines and concession stands in the town’s public spaces. “So in the bid specification, I wrote an exclusion for the Dew Tour,” Shuster said. The exclusion states that the city will be able to hold up to two events annually that break the franchise agreement by allowing competitive products to be sold on city-owned property. The second exclusion is not yet being used. “The idea was that, if some other event would present itself and have a significant impact, the town would have the discretion [to take it on in addition to Dew Tour]. But it has not been exercised,” said Shuster. Although the Dew Tour is planning to just sell water at the event, it will be Pepsibranded water – and bottled water is classified in the contract as a “competitive beverage.” “The exclusivity of the agreement works with beverages only and the contract defines what is and what is not a ‘competitive beverage,’” Shuster said. “The contract reads ‘the term beverage shall not include fresh-brewed coffee or tea, milk, hot cocoa, alcohol, juices …I t’s pretty specific as to what it doesn’t cover.” And, of course, things that clearly aren’t beverages. “If they [Coca-Cola] owned a potato chip company, it wouldn’t mean that they’d become the exclusive potato chip of the city.”

Chesapeake buys ESG; natural gas in resort still distant ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (June 6, 2012) The city’s home gas supply franchise may soon be changing hands, as Chesapeake Utilities is in the process of purchasing the operations of Eastern Shore Gas, the current provider of the island’s propane lines. According to a press release, Chesapeake’s acquisition of ESG is part of its larger plan to expand its service throughout Worcester County. Chesapeake’s subsidiary, Eastern Shore Natural Gas, is currently building a natural gas line from Delaware down through the Maryland shore. “The current line that is being built through our subsidiary is going down through Bishopville, Showell, and ending in Berlin,” said Chesapeake Vice President Jeff Tietbohl of the gas main that extends down Route 113 and along Friendship Road, just east of Berlin. While the system being built by Chesapeake is designed for natural gas, the infrastructure they are in the process of purchasing from ESG is entirely propane-based, making the company’s expansion plans a bit more difficult. “Pending the approval of the PSC [the Maryland Public Service Commission], our aspiration would be in that immediate area, to start building where the line is coming down,” said Tietbohl, who said that Ocean Pines would most likely the primary target of natural gas refitting, given its density and proximity to the new main line. However, he did not rule out the possibility that the company could do the same in Ocean City. “A lot of it just depends on what infrastructure is there, clearly it gets to be a little more complex,” Tietbohl said of more urban setting such as the island. “If you’re able to use some of the existing lines, that makes it easier too. We have a lot of things to evaluate.” “ESG has a franchise contract with the city, which basically spells out their obligations with regard to future infrastructure improvements,” said Ocean City Public Works Director Hal Adkins. “The current contract held by ESG is transferrable to someone like Chesapeake.” The franchise agreement requires the company to provide service anywhere a demand exists, and also defines a number of infrastructure changes sought by the city, including replacement of steel pipes with polyethylene lines and the construction of a main line beneath the bay to eliminate the need for storage facilities at 66th and 67th Streets. Adkins said he would love to see a full underground network for natural gas to be done on the island, in order to open up the possibility of using high-efficiency natural gas-powered buses, an energysaving measure that has been floated around the city before. “That’s one of the things I would like to see before I retire, but it’s not going to happen unless there’s underground lines, I just don’t see us being able to manage it with above-ground tanks,” Adkins said.

rooms of the city’s convention center. At the June 18 council meeting, a 4-3 motion was made to bring the possibility of election consolidation to vote at the July 2 session. Councilman Joe Hall, who had previously supported the change, but had been met with opposition by the rest of council, was joined by council members Mary Knight, Doug Cymek and Lloyd Martin, who cited renewed public interest in the change as well as possible cost savings. Councilman Brent Ashley, along with Council President Jim Hall and Mayor Rick Meehan, opposed the idea on the grounds that it would cause the city’s contest to be lost amongst state and national issues, while Councilwoman Margaret Pillas said she did not want to move forward until further public discussion had been held. Following the vote, City Solicitor Guy Ayres distributed a letter outlining challenges to getting the city’s contests on the general ballot, which is organized by the Worcester County Board of Elections. Ocean City would essentially need to come under the purview of the county and the state board which oversees it, a move that Ayres was told would require action by the Maryland General Assembly. However, Cymek said last week that

he had received second-hand information regarding some Maryland municipalities, including Hagerstown and Cumberland, having merged their balloting with that of their respective counties without the state’s involvement. The Washington County Board of Elections confirmed to Ocean City Today that Hagerstown had in fact done so. But Ayres said Monday that the situation was less cut-and-dried. “The county board won’t approve it if the state doesn’t and they’re still taking the position that it will take some kind of legislation,” Ayres said Monday. “I know what’s been said about other municipalities, but I understand that there was some political arm-twisting involved to do that.” “Honestly, the enthusiasm from the state and the county is very low,” Ayres continued. A particular sticking point was the fact that the county would need to reorganize its ballots and reprogram its machines to accommodate the city. This would incur a one-time up-front cost to the town, but present a savings in following years versus the city conducing elections on its own. However, Ayres said, “they [the county] seriously questioned whether they could do that in time or the fall elections.” Given these obstacles, Ayers said last

Separate but simultaneous ballots loses Councilman Hall’s support week that he anticipated an alternative solution, which he presented to council Monday. “There’s nothing that prohibits you from changing the election date and still having a separate election,” Ayers said. “If, logistically, the convention center is big enough, and it clearly is, you could still have the state and federal election, then walk out the door and participate in the city election, and that would require nothing from the state or county.” Cymek and Knight said last week that they tentatively would prefer that option, and on Monday the solution also had the immediate support of Martin, who said that the move would be a worthwhile first step. “If it works out this year, then we go to the state legislature and say this is what we want to do and why,” he proposed. Martin said he also shared concerns about overwhelming national issues. “I do believe putting us on the same ballot hurts us, because then we’re thrown into a pool of Republican versus Democrat,” he said. However, the ‘separate but simultaneous’ compromise lost the support of Joe Hall. “I also believe it needs to be a one-stop shop and not in two different rooms, and I won’t be able to support that element tonight,” Hall said. “From what I get from this motion, there would be zero cost savings to the town … one of the major aspects of support that I got from the community, the

cost savings, is not in this motion. It doesn’t accomplish what was put out to the public,” Hall continued. But Hall was met with staunch criticism from both the audience and from within council. “I’m going to have to take you to task a bit on this one, Joe,” said Cymek, referencing what he saw as a sudden reversal of opinion by Hall in regards to what he described as a “steady downward spiral” in voter participation. However, Hall retorted by pointing to the fact that it was Cymek himself who had introduced the potential cost savings of ballot consolidation as a rationale for his own desire to re-visit the issue. “I don’t think we ever said ‘one ballot’,” replied Cymek. “Oh come on, Doug,” Hall injected. Citizens for Ocean City spokesman Joe Groves was also present to speak in support of the change. Groves’ group had previously requested, via Facebook, that its supporters come to Monday’s meeting to push the change. At one point, Cymek asked for a show of hands from audience members as to who was for the change — roughly 20 hands were raised. “This gives people just one time they have to come out to vote,” said supporter Jeff Thaylor, citing the needs of the elderly and people with inflexible work schedules. “Last year, you said our turnout was embarrassing. Now it’s

not?” he queried Hall. “You shouldn’t be fixated on why I don’t support this,” said Hall in reference to the promises of financial savings. “The three people who have changed their minds since the last 6-1 vote against this have clearly figured out that this is somehow to their advantage,” he said in reference to Cymek, Knight, and Martin. However, Knight continued to point to public demand as the reason for her change of heart. “The reason I’m a flipflopper is because of you,” she said to the audience. Former City Manager Dennis Dare, who was dismissed from his post last fall by a 4-3 vote of Hall, Pillas, Hall, and Ashley, was also in attendance to support the change. “I want to give you three examples of why I support doing this … the state

legislature has worked in three different ways that I can think of to engage citizens in the process,” said Dare. He cited early voting measures, the ability to register to vote at the Motor Vehicle Administration, and voter check-ins that do not require ID as evidence that simplified polling was the way of the future. When the final vote was taken, both President Hall and Pillas said they agreed with the separate-space compromise as a possible solution to low turnout that also kept the city’s elections independent, and the measure passed 5-2 with Ashley and Joe Hall opposed. Pillas then immediately made a motion to specify that the city would not be pursuing a ballot merger with the county and instead simply changing its polling date, a measure which passed in the same fashion.

O’Malley touts job creation,entrepreneurship during MML conf. NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) Gov. Martin O’Malley touted some of the state’s successes during his speech Tuesday evening to members of the Maryland Municipal League during its annual convention in Ocean City. “Each of you play a critical role [in the state’s success],” he told the elected officials, municipal government leaders and others attending the banquet at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center. As examples of businesses creating jobs, he named several companies with interests on the peninsula, including Jimmie and Sooks in Cambridge and Vorbeck, the Howard County-based company that plans to purchase a state-owned building in Pocomoke for its new manufacturing facility. Vortech expects to create up to 50 new jobs in Pocomoke within the next

three years. “It is exciting to see a cutting-edge, innovative company like Vorbeck creating high-quality manufacturing jobs on the Eastern Shore,’ O’Malley said. “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently ranked Maryland No. 1 for entrepreneurship and innovation because of our commitment to high-tech industries and our willingness to invest in the talents, skills, education and innovation of our people. We are pleased that Vorbeck has chosen to expand in Maryland, a reflection of our state’s support for this growing high-tech industry and affirmation that we are a leader in the nation’s innovation economy.” Earlier in the day, O’Malley had toured Evolution Craft Brewing Company in Salisbury, a company that recently moved to Maryland. The brewery started with seven employees in 2009, but now employs

more than 50 and expects to add 10 by the end of this year. “Ten jobs here, 20 jobs there, 250 there,” he said. The creation of jobs, he said, requires a modern investment, and some of those must be public investments in education and in rebuilding. Wanting those investments is not a Democratic or Republican idea, he said. Too many people remain unemployed and in need of work, so the need for job creation continues, he said. O’Malley also praised the state’s success in education, saying that Maryland has the top public schools in the country for the fourth straight year. Not everything in the state gets high marks, however, as he said the state has the worst traffic congestion in the country. Nonetheless, he is continuing his push for transportation funding, and he is currently

where he wants to be. “There’s not another governor in the United States I’d want to change places with,” he said. In his final thoughts, the governor said he had to think of “other people who did their jobs before us.” They did not leave to the state a 50-year-old jalopy, but cared about the future and progress. “Progress is a choice,” he said. “We can invest in the future, or be the first generation in Maryland to give our children less. It’s a choice you can make for the better.” Following his speech, O’Malley introduced the newly elected board of directors and the new president-elect, Delmar Mayor Carl Anderton Jr. Officials from approximately 120 municipalities attended the annual convention.

JULY 6, 2012

Bogus headline hints at real political advice It was a cynical newsroom headline mentioned in jest following the City Council’s vote Monday to change the date of the municipal election from October to November: “Populist election grandstanding causes Andrew Jackson to roll cold, dead eyes.” Jackson, after all, believed the American people ought to be more involved in government than what they had been under what he and his supporters characterized as an exclusionary elitist system. In other words, the federal government by the early 1800s had become an institution controlled by a political aristocracy that ignored the voice of the average person. Some would argue nothing has changed, assurances to the contrary by modern politicians notwithstanding. But what does Jackson have to do with the Ocean City Council’s election date discussion? The council invoked the populist philosophy by contending that public demand, along with a desire to involve more people in government, prompted the move. Yet, when a local election produces a mere 25 percent turnout, it is doubtful that the balance of the registered, but non-voting, population demanded much of anything or even implied in great numbers that it would participate if only the election was on another day. If people care, they will vote regardless of the date. This isn’t to say that the council’s decision doesn’t make sense, because it does, if only as a matter of voter convenience. And it is possible that it will produce a much better turnout. The real question, though, is what these thousands of registered but non-participating voters truly care about — unions, finance, services, this or that majority or none of the above? Rousing debates and political disharmony apparently doesn’t matter as much as everyone thinks. Taking Jackson’s populist approach, however, could work if politicians go outside their own circles and find out what the average person really thinks and wants.

So there I was, knee-deep in mud wondering what I had been thinking. “Be careful of the current,” my wife advised me about an hour earlier as I headed out to a new super-secret place for some kayak fishing unmolested by the flotilla of boaters who apparently believe that sending towering walls of water toward humble kayakers is a moral obligation. It’s as if they say in roaring by, “If he wants to fish, he should get a real boat like us with a real motor, which we will now happily demonstrate by throwing out a wake that’ll make him wish he had a snorkel. Just for future reference, by the way, I’m the guy in the easily spotted bright yellow kayak with one hand, or at least some part of it, raised in the air. “Don’t worry,” I replied. “There’s not much current where I’m headed.” I have to say at this point that even though the water in the bay looks pretty much the same from a distance, there are small, very narrow channels everywhere

By Stewart Dobson that, when the tide is really running, will propel you into your own future, which will look, at least momentarily, bleak. This would explain what happened when I rounded the point of a small island and was up on plane doing about 30 and paddling air. To heck with this, I thought. I’m circling around this island in my new super-secret fishing spot, throwing the anchor, walking up on the island and casting from there. I will endure no wakes, will catch large fish and be the envy of

everyone, with or without a real boat. Well, I will do these things, I realized after hopping onto what looked like moderately firm ground, after I extricate myself from a thousand years of silt, clay and mud and claw my way to freedom. By the time, I landed on terra firma, as opposed to terra mucka, I realized that, since the tide was going out, I ought to head back to the little ditch from whence I came while the getting was good. Suffice to say, the getting wasn’t good. All that would have made the final trek back to shore any more perfect would have been if piranha were known to inhabit local waters and that they could survive in one inch of it or less. Two hours later, I was back home covered in what only can be described as commando makeup. “Well,” said my wife, giving me the up and down, “You always wanted to be a muckety-muck and now you are one.”

TEAK…LASTS A LIFETIME

ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) A garbage truck fire outside the Oyster Bay shopping center in North Ocean City was contained Tuesday morning in a coordinated effort between Ocean City’s Fire and Public Works departments, leaving no apparent injuries or property damage other than a singed and soggy pile of trash on Coastal Highway. Just before 10 a.m., the OCFD was called to the shopping center at Coastal Highway and Jamestown Road, which houses The Greene Turtle, Pizza Tugo’s and other stores, and where Public Works truck drivers had apparently stopped their garbage rig in the bus lane after discovering that the trash they were carrying had caught ablaze. Firefighters first attempted to quell the flames by climbing atop the truck and pumping water down into the garbage pile, but the fire appeared to be smoldering deep within the trash heap and burning faster than the water could reach it. The call was then made to have the drivers dump the load in the bus lane, so that firefighters could pick through it and hose down the source of the flames.

$

After fire crews determined that the trash had been sufficiently quenched, Public Works employees arrived with front-end loaders to scoop the trash back into a hauling truck, while wastewater division workers used a vacuum rig to suck up most of the liquid runoff from the waterlogged garbage. Public Works drivers said that garbage truck fires have happened before and are typically attributed to discarded charcoal briquettes, which can remain hot for long periods of time after they appears to be out. “Even people who feel that they’re doing it right, by putting it [the charcoal] in a bucket of water or something, it just happens,” said Public Works Director Hal Adkins. Adkins said that he could recall three or four previous instances, in the 28 years he’s worked for the city, where trash caught fire inside the garbage truck. Most of the fires are indeed from charcoal, although in some instances Adkins said “we’ve had what I guess you’d call a chemical reaction, where people put pool chemicals in the trash and there’s some kind of thermal process, not with the garbage itself, but it creates enough heat to catch newspaper or something similar.”

Home care worker faces jail time after stealing from client

NEWS 25

Fine Italian Fare with an Eastern Shore Flair

NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) The home care worker who stole from her client, an elderly Ocean Pines woman, was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison. “You have a hard time understanding you’re not entitled to what’s not yours,” Judge Thomas C. Groton III told Shameika Leshea Turner in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. Turner pleaded guilty to obtaining property from a vulnerable adult. In exchange for her guilty plea, the State’s Attorney’s Office did not prosecute the other nine charges against her. Turner took care of the woman three days a week in August 2011 and on Sept. 2. The woman was recuperating from a triple bypass operation at the time. On that last day, Turner took the woman’s credit card and two bonus checks from the credit card company. “She used her position of trust to gain access,” Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Rakow said. She used the credit card at a mall and cashed a check at a local bank. In court, Turner, who turns 32 on July 23, said she is unemployed and has four children. She gets assistance from Social Services. She said she was concerned about what would happen to them if she went to jail. Groton told her she should have thought of her children before she stole. He noted that she had two prior theft convictions. He then sentenced her to three years in prison, with all but one year suspended. After her release from jail, she will be on supervised probation for two years and must pay a $500 fine and $170 in court costs. She must also make restitution of $2,155.87 to the credit card company. Groton said he would allow Turner to begin her jail term July 16 so she may have the time for a non-emergency medical procedure that she wants to have. Turner’s elderly victim was in court, but chose not to speak.

OCPD’s Paddack earns national recognition,distinguished medal Second law enforcement officer in nation to earn revolver medal this year (July 6, 2012) The Ocean City Police Department announced last week that acting Lt. Mark Paddack earned the Distinguished Revolver Medal from the Law Enforcement Division of the National Rifle Association. So far this year, Paddack is only the second law enforcement officer in the United States to earn the distinguished re-

volver medal. Since 1973, when the distinguished revolver program began, Paddack is the 779th law enforcement officer to receive the medal during the 39-year history of the program. He is the 41st winner from Maryland. “I am proud of the commitment, skill and determination show by A/Lt. Paddack,” said OCPD Chief Bernadette DiPino. “Earning a distinguished ribbon takes a specialized skill, specific knowledge, training, experience and complete dedication. He has gone well beyond the average law enforcement practitioner and I am pleased to have him represent the Ocean City Police Department.” Paddack received the medal June 16, after placing in the Palmetto State Regional sponsored by the South Carolina Police Combat League and held by the Charleston Police Department. Four past and present members of the

Ocean City Police Department have earned the distinguished revolver medal. They are retired Capt. Robert Bokinsky, currently the chief of police in Pella, Iowa, in 1994, Lt. Richard Moreck in 2001, Capt. Greg Guiton in 2002 and retired Lt. Mark Doyle in 2003. The National Rifle Association’s Distinguished Revolver Medal program, which started in 1973, recognizes law enforcement professionals in the excellence of police combat competition using a stock service type revolver. Paddack began utilizing his police handgun training in service revolver competition in 2004, in preparation for the distinguished revolver medal. He traveled more than 15,300 miles to matches in Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Maryland representing Ocean City’s law enforcement community in competition.

Teens charged with assaulting man near police substation NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (July 6, 2012) Two young Dover, Del., men were charged July 1 with assaulting a man in the public bathrooms beneath the Worcester Street Police substation. A policeman saw the men on the sidewalk in front of the substation hitting the man as approximately 50 people watched. The two men then ran toward Baltimore Avenue and then north along the avenue with police in pursuit as well as several bystanders who had witnessed the attack. The policeman detained one suspect, Javon Breontay Tazewell, 21, and another policeman detained the second suspect, Jamar Keontay Tazewell, 22. Javon Tazewell had fresh blood all over the front right pants leg of his jeans and what appeared to be blood on his tennis shoes, according to the charging document. Jamar Tazewell also appeared to have drops of blood on his tennis shoes. Neither man showed any sign of injury. A witness told police he had seen both men kicking and punching the victim in the head and face while he was on his hands and knees in the men’s bathroom. Another witness reported seeing the two men punching and stomping the victim’s head and face directly in front of the police substation. That witness also said the men were “curbing” the victim, or stomp his head into the curb. Paramedics treated the victim, who was said to have been bleeding profusely and appeared dazed. He reportedly lost consciousness after the arrival of the paramedics and was flown by Maryland State Police helicopter to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Both men were charged with disorderly conduct and first- and second-degree assault.

Six Criminal Justice Academy grads join resort police force (July 6, 2012) Six new officers have joined the Ocean City Police Department after graduating from the Eastern Shore Criminal Justice Academy on June 13.

Deadly weapons arrests on rise in Ocean City NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

Open 10AM - 5PM Every Day

! ""

#

# #

(July 6, 2012) The number deadly weapons confiscated by police in Ocean City in June more than doubled over what they were a year ago, according to crime statistics, as police filed 47 weapons charges during the month. This compares to the 22 such charges in June 2011 and the 39 in June 2010. So many handguns were found by police that a memo at another law enforcement agency warned its personnel to be alert should they be in the downtown area at night. Police Chief Bernadette DiPino said the increase in weapons-related arrests occurred as police increased their enforcement of traffic-, alcohol- and drug-related laws. “While it's not good to have weapons, we're getting them off the street,” DiPino said Monday. “A significant amount [of weapons-related arrests] came from seatbelt checks and other pro-active traffic enforcement,” said Public Affairs Specialist Jessica Waters said. One seatbelt check last week culminated in the arrest of a resident who had a switchblade knife. On June 28, Ido Hanania Lazarovich, 28, of Ocean City, was charged with having a concealed dangerous weapon, a spring-assisted knife, after a police officer found it in the storage area of the driver's door of the vehicle Lazarovich was driving. The policeman, who was patrolling on a bike, stopped Lazarovich's vehicle near First Street be-

cause he was not wearing a seatbelt and because no registration sticker was on the license plate. The arrest for having concealed deadly weapons, other than guns, was just one of 31 made in June. In June 2011, only nine such arrests were made and in June 2010, 26 such arrests were made. The same day as that concealed deadly weapons arrest, a 21-year-old Delaware man was charged with having a replica of a handgun after an Ocean City police officer found a BB gun beneath the driver's seat. The officer had awakened the driver and three others who were sleeping in a vehicle at 136th Street because of the violation of a city ordinance forbidding sleeping in vehicles. The driver, Mansel Alexander Bailey of Magnolia, Del., consented to a search of his vehicle and the officer then found the BB gun, which looked like a semi-automatic handgun. According to the charging document, Bailey told the officer he had it because he "didn't know the area" and "for protection." Police made six arrests in June for wearing or carrying concealed gun replicas, such as the BB gun. In June 2011, they made three such arrests and in June 2010, they made five. Two people were charged with carrying handguns. That number was the same as June 2011 and one more than in 2010. On June 4, Mark A.J. Mahorney, 22, of Ellicott City, was arrested after police saw a handgun on the pavement near him in downtown parking lot. He ran, but was

apprehended at Third Street. On June 23, Joel Eugene Paige, 22, showed a number of people in or near an Eighth Street lodging place that he had a handgun in the small of his back. Someone reported him to police, who arrested him at gunpoint. Six people were charged in June with having handguns in their vehicles. One person was charged with that offense in June 2011 and two were charged in June 2010. There were two arrests this June for possession of a deadly weapon with the intent to injure. Last June, there were three and in June 2010, there were four. There were no arrests last month for a martial arts weapon violation. There were four arrests for that in June 2011 and one in June 2010. Despite the numerous arrests involving handguns and other weapons, Waters said Ocean City continues to be safe. “Our officers are very committed to strictly enforcing these the priorities,” Waters said. “By getting these weapons off the street, it makes Ocean City a safer place.” Waters also said that although "criminals of all kinds vacation," she does not think the people coming to Ocean City are more violent than past visitors and the number of first-degree assault charges are down from eight in June 2010 to six in June 2011 and to just two in June 2012. July, however, began with some very serious charges, including two arrests for first-degree assault, one arrest for wearing or carrying a gun replica and one arrest for having a concealed deadly weapon.

POLICE BRIEFS

Wrong unit? A young woman was sleeping on a couch near the front door of her 139th Street residence June 29 when a man she did not know tried to get on the same couch in the dark and ended up almost lying down on top of her. She and another young woman who had been asleep on another couch in the living room shouted for him to get off and he did. She asked who he was and he asked who she was. A woman who had been sleeping in a rear bedroom was awakened and went to the living room, where she also shouted for the man to leave. Instead of leaving, he walked to a corner of the room and urinated on a blue beanbag chair. A young man who had been sleeping in another rear bedroom woke up and went to the living room. He joined in the shouting for the intruder to leave. Instead of leaving, the man reportedly started running around the unit grabbing random items, including a bottle of sunscreen, a screwdriver and an oyster knife. The young man who lived in unit grabbed some of the items back while one of the young women called for police. As the intruder left, he grabbed a decorative wind chime on his way out, but the young man who lived in the unit ran after him and grabbed it away from him. Two police officers ran down Coastal Highway and saw and arrested the intruder. The two young woman told police that the front door was probably unlocked. Police saw no signs of forced entry. Police charged Charles Jordan Rubino, 26, of Seaford, Del., with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property less than $500 and theft of less than $100. A District Court Commissioner did not find probable cause for the burglary charges.

Replica handgun A 18-year-old man from Dover, Del., was charged July 1 with transporting a gun replica in a vehicle. Police officers had gone to a parking lot near 13th Street because of complaints about loud music coming from a vehicle. They met Edward Allen Boyer and ran a warrant check that revealed he was wanted in Delaware for attempted robbery and other charges. Because Boyer’s vehicle was parked illegally, police called a tow company to tow it away. The pre-tow inventory of the car’s contents produced a replica of a Beretta handgun beneath the driver’s seaT.

the Teal Marsh Shopping Center off Route 611 in West Ocean City and, thinking of the couple’s desire to relocate, bought it in October. He built cabinets to showcase his shotguns, handguns and rifles, painted and installed hardwood floors and opened Larry’s Trading Post on Feb. 29. “I just found a good deal on the building. It was the right time and the right place,” he said. “I needed more room to work and I wanted to expand. This is a big hunting market and I want to cater to the locals and make sure I have what they need.” Most of the firearms available in the store came from Friedman’s previous business, which he closed. At approximately 1,600 square feet, the West Ocean City shop is two-times larger and he is able to offer a full line of firearms, for be-

ginners to master shooters. “I moved my clay target, high-grade guns here and I’ve added other stuff. We now have everything, and all price ranges,” he said. “I’m working on building my inventory up to where we’ll have about 400 guns in stock all the time.” Friedman is an authorized Beretta dealer and also sells guns manufactured by Perazzi, SKB, Zoli, Colt, S&W, Sig Sauer, among others. Ammunition, clothing, safes, gun cases, scopes, binoculars, knives, targets and accessories are available at the shop. Larry’s Trading Post current hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will also be open by appointment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 443-664-2040 or email friedmans@comcast.net.

County leaders upset over new septic regs proposed by state NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

(July 6, 2012) Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners, said Tuesday that it would be a “great idea” to talk to the Lower Shore legislators about forest buffers for cities. That might be too difficult, county attorney Sonny Bloxom said, because Baltimore streets are already “torn up.” “They could just plant trees in potholes,” Bloxom said. What made Church and Bloxom angry were new septic regulations proposed by the Maryland Department of the Environment. In a memo, Bob Mitchell, director of Environmental Programs for the county, said that the regulatory change was announced just five days before new legislation, the Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act, was signed into law. The new septic regulations would require almost all new septic systems and some replacement systems to incorporate the best available technology for the removal of nitrogen. It would also require the best available technology to be used in any replacement septic systems serving properties in either the coastal bays or Chesapeake Bay critical areas. It would also require replacement systems outside the critical areas to use the best available

technology if their system size was expanded. Mitchell said Worcester County had adhered to requirements for new and replaced septic systems in the critical area to have best available technology upgrades. The county was successful when it argued for a less stringent interpretation of that law to only require an upgrade if just the system or the house were within the critical area. The proposed regulation, however, would remove that interpretation. It would also, Mitchell said, affect people’s pocketbooks and add another regulatory burden to the county. “It’s a little crazy,” Mitchell said. Gerry Mason, the county’s chief administrative officer, said it was a complicated issue that is on the fast track. County Commissioner Virgil Shockley said the state is bypassing the Senate bill and now the Maryland Department of the Environment s deciding how far the state will go in its effort to remove nutrients from water. The commissioners decided to send a letter expressing their displeasure to the Joint Committee on Administrative, Executive and Legislative Review, which is made up of 10 members each of the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate. That committee is scheduled to have a hearing on the proposed new regulations on July 10.

Big eye tuna a highlight LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor “Normally, 150 pounds would win the tuna division,” said Franky Pettolina, Marlin Club president and Canyon Kick Off tournament director. “As far as quality and quantity, it was the best ever.” Nine big eye tuna were caught during the 30th annual competition — a record for Marlin Club tournaments. Three bluefin tuna and 13 yellowfin were also weighed. The White Lightning anglers brought three big eye tuna to the scale last Saturday — 163.4-, 208- and 224poundes. The largest was Ron Marquette’s took first place in the tuna division and was worth $8,482.50. The team also hooked a 210.8-pounder the following day. The Lucky Duck II crew finished in second and third place with 219- and 218.2-pound big eyes, reeled in by Art and Tina Boykin. The group, who also boated 139 and 188.6 pounders, was awarded $2,452.50. The Miss Emily team won the bluefin division with Avery Arrowood’s 79-pounder. Jezebel angler Jason Courtney’s 78.4-pound bluefin, worth $2,205, finished in second place. A Salt Weapon II team placed third with John Kohl’s 36.8-pounder worth $315. Paul Gentry, fishing on the Shadowfax, hooked a 24.2pound dolphin, good for first place in the division and $8,077.50. A 20.8-pound dolphin, caught by Garrett Hart aboard Dawg Haus, took the second-place spot. The team collected $1,741.50 for the fish. The Salty Sons crew finished in third place with Shane McGinnis’ 19.6 pounder. The group pocketed $918. In the release division, white marlin, sailfish and spearfish were each worth 100 points. Blue marlin and swordfish were worth 150 points. The Double Trouble won the division with 250 points. The Billfisher earned 200 points and $3,195, and The Nontypical collected 200 points and $702. Also winning prize money for releases was Drillin and Billin ($468), White Lightning ($405) and Dawg Haus $270). See TOURNEY on Page 43

LET’S PLAY BALL Berlin Little League All-Star season under way LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (July 6, 2012) The Berlin Little League All-Star season is officially under way. The 9-10year-old and the 10-11-year-old squads and the Junior League team started competing last week, while the Major Leaguers were scheduled to kick off their All-Star season on July 5. ■ 9-10-YEAR-OLDS: The 9-10-year-olds opened the season June 29 on the road against Crisfield. The Berlin squad shut out its opponent 120 in four innings. “Friday night we looked incredible. We played very well as a team and each player contributed to the win,” said Manager Ned Delaney. “We played great offensively and defensively.” Seth Hudson went 3-for-3, including an inside-the-park home run. Dawson Delaney hit two doubles and John Karacoulakis and Jeff Helvig both had two hits. Delaney praised the performance of his three pitchers, Travis Adams, Dawson Delaney and Gavin Bunting. Berlin’s defense came up big in several innings, recording outs with the bases loaded. The team’s performance was not as stellar on Sunday in its 154 loss to Delmar at the Northern Worcester Athletic Complex, off Route 113 in Berlin. “Delmar is a good team but we should have beat them. We made some defensive decisions that did not result in outs,” Delaney said. “We had plenty of opportunities that we didn’t capitalize on. The margin does not reflect how close the game was.” Chase Porter, who played catcher, second base and pitched during the game, was “outstanding” offensively and defensively, Delaney said. He went 2-for-4 at the plate and scored two of Berlin’s four runs. Hudson was 2-for-3 and scored two runs. On Tuesday, Berlin headed to Princess Anne for competition. The team scored four runs in the first, but in the bottom of the inning Princess Anne tallied three. Berlin tacked on a run in the fourth to pull ahead 5-3. Princess Anne scored three

runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 6-5 lead and held on for the win. “We had great offensive production in the first inning, but then our bats went to sleep. We had a lot of miscues on defense,” Delaney said. “It was a tough game. Both teams played hard, they just came out on top.” The Berlin team, which consists of 10 10-year-olds and one 9-year-old, will host Fruitland today, Friday, at 6 p.m. The top two squads in Pools A and B will advance and compete on Sunday. The first-place team in Pool A will take on the second-place Pool B squad. The top team in Pool B will battle the second-place A team. The two winners will go head-tohead on Tuesday. “I’m proud of the kids and what we’ve accomplished so far this year,” Delaney said. “We are working hard and hopefully the end will show how much work we’ve put into it.” ■ 10-11-YEAR-OLDS:

Last year, competing in the 9-10-year-old division, the boys had a standout season under the direction of Manager Cameron McDonough. The squad outscored its District 8 opponents 84-3 and captured the conference trophy. They advanced to the state tournament in Brunswick, Md., where the team took down each opponent it faced to earn Berlin’s first Little League state championship. After going 10-0 during District 8 and state-level competition, Berlin headed to Cranston, R.I., for the east regional tournament. Berlin, Maryland’s representative, fell to Delaware and New York, but edged out New Jersey and Pennsylvania during pool play. New York topped Berlin in the Mid-Atlantic championship game. Ten of the 11 players from the 2011 team, now all age 11, have returned. See TEAMS’ on Page 44

BOATING SAFTEY

Citizens and visitors urged to be safe on water this summer (July 6, 2012) The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Police are urging citizens and visitors to be extra vigilant in and on the water throughout the summer. “We want everyone to be able to enjoy the wonderful recreational opportunities our state has to offer, on water and land, to the fullest,” said Superintendent Col. George F. Johnson IV. “But the importance of safety while boating and swimming cannot be overstated and must be a No. 1 priority while enjoying Maryland waterways and state parks.” Last year, Maryland experienced an unusually high number of boating deaths. During the summer, NRP will focus its enforcement efforts on those activities that contribute to boating accidents, such as alcohol, negligent operation, bow riding and navigational violations. NRP recommends that swimmers stay within designated swimming areas with lifeguards on duty whenever possible. Lifeguards keep all swimmers informed of any changes in water conditions and are trained to respond if an emergency occurs. NRP also offers the following swimming safety tips: ■ When swimming outside guarded areas, obey all warning signs that alert swimmers to dangers and be aware of any surrounding signs or markers that indicate current water conditions. ■ Never swim alone or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. ■ Pay special attention to small children and use safety devices such as life jackets on children or other individuals who cannot swim. ■ Carry a cell phone or have other ways of contacting emergency personnel if a situation arises. If an emergency occurs, immediately call 911 and remember to Reach, Throw, Row and Go: ■ REACH the person in trouble by extending a releasable item, such as a pole, line or rope to pull them to safety, but not by hand, as the rescuer could quickly become another victim. ■ THROW an object that floats to the victim if they are unreachable. Life rings, PFDs, coolers or plastic jugs are suitable floating objects that can keep a troubled swimmer afloat until rescuers arrive. ■ ROW to the victim using a canoe or any other safe watercraft. The rescuer must wear a life jacket. Once the victim is nearby, a rope or paddle should be extended and used to tow the victim to shore if possible. ■ GO to the victim by entering the water as a last resort and ONLY if properly trained. The rescuer should bring an object to keep the victim afloat and to prevent being pulled under. More information on boating safety is available at dnr.maryland.gov/boating/safety.

Bluefin, yellowfin and big eye tuna are the prime catches anglers will be searching for offshore during the event, scheduled July 13-15. “A lot of big eyes have been showing up lately,” tournament director Jennifer Blunt said Monday. A record nine big eyes were caught last weekend, during the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 30th annual Canyon Kick Off. “Tuna fishing has been great. Everything’s been early this year. There’s been a really good yellowfin bite and bluefin seem to be getting bigger. It looks like there will be good variety just in time for the tournament.” During the Tuna Tournament, anglers on both charter and private boats may hook a single bluefin per day. Three yellowfin, which tend to be smaller than bluefin, may be caught per person per day. There is no limit to the number of big eyes a team may catch, although they may only weigh up to five fish per tournament day. Early registration for the 25th annual tournament ends today, July 6, at 5 p.m. The cost is $800 to enter. Final registration will take place Thursday, July 12, from 3-7 p.m. at the Fishing Center in West Ocean City. A captains’ meeting is scheduled for 8 p.m. that night. For those who miss early registration, the cost is $900 per boat (maximum six anglers). There are nine added entry level calcuttas, or wagering pools, this year. Cost to enter those ranges from $200 to $5,000. Anglers may enter into one or all of the added entry level categories, which, if they place on the top of the leader board, could substantially increase the amount of prize money their receive. Two new calcuttas — Level H Winner Takes All for largest dolphin and Level I Boats Under 40 feet Winner Takes All — were added in 2011 and proved to be popular. Seventy of the 87 boats entered in the tournament participated in the Level H calcutta. “We added this to give a little more excitement to the dolphin division and more money to those guys who fish for dolphin,” Blunt said last year. Thirty-five of the 36 boats smaller than 40 feet entered the Level I calcutta last year, where 50 percent of the prize money will go to the angler who reels in the heaviest tuna. The other 50 percent will be awarded to the team with the most tuna caught, measured by pounds. Blunt said she received positive feed back from anglers fishing on smaller boats. “They like having their own category,” she said. “It’s like a mini tournament in a way.” The Level G calcutta was added in 2008 and costs $200 to enter. Each year, half of the prize money in the calcutta benefits an organization or charity. Last See JULY on Page 43

White Lightning anglers brought three big eye tuna to the Sunset Marina scale last Saturday — 163.4-, 208and 224-pounders. The largest was Ron Marquette’s, worth $8,482.50, which took first place in the tuna division of the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 30th annual Canyon Kick Off tournament.

Fifty-three boats registered for the tournament and a total of $28,710 was awarded to the winners. Participation was down by 10 boats from 2011 as a “lousy weather forecast” deterred some teams

from competing this year, Pettolina said. “The weather forecast was way off base. It was flat; calm seas all three days,” he said. “Overall, all things considered, I thought the tournament went pretty well. It was a big success.”

year, approximately $3,000 was donated to the Ocean City Reef Foundation for the Jimmy Jackson Reef Project. Jackson, a local angler and businessman, who lost his life in a diving accident in April 2010 in the Bahamas. The Level F “Pro Tuna Jackpot” Winner Takes All costs $5,000 to enter, but it pays off for the angler with the heaviest single tuna as long as he signs up for the calcutta. Only about eight boats registered for the Level F during the first year (2005). In 2011, 36 entered. The Level F pot itself totaled $162,000 last year. In 2011, 87 boats registered for the tournament, which offered $476,730 in prize money. For 2012, tournament fishing is permitted Friday through Sunday, July 13-15. Anglers will fish two of the three days. Catches will be weighed at the Ocean City Fishing Center between 4-7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and until 7 p.m. Sunday. To speed up the weigh-in process, stringer fish (a boat’s heaviest five fish per day) can be weighed at Sunset Marina on Friday and Saturday. All other fish, including trophy fish, must be brought to

the Fishing Center. Prize money will be awarded to the first-, second- and third-heaviest single tuna and the largest total catch weight. The top team in the Largest Fish division will receive an invitation to compete in the IGFA Offshore Championship. Each boat may weigh up to five fish per day to compete for a two-day total pound catch. There is a 30-pound minimum weight requirement for all eligible tournament tuna. A $1,500 award will be presented to the female angler who catches the largest tuna. Prizes will also be awarded to the lady anglers who hook the second- and third-heaviest tuna. A Junior Angler division is available for those aged 16 and younger. The winner will receive $1,000. The junior angler who reels in the second largest tuna will win $500. The youth who hooks the third heaviest will get $250. There will also be prize money ($2,500, $1,000 and $500) for the first-, second- and third-largest dolphin.

Teams’ managers pleased with performance of their players Continued from Page 41

“We are exponentially better than we were last year. We had three or four kids carry the load at the plate, but this year all the guys are contributing,” McDonough said. “They go out every day and sweat and work hard. They show up early for practice and they stay late.” The squad kicked off the season with a bang, trouncing its first opponent, East Wicomico, 31-0 in four innings on June 30. The boys had 20 hits and limited East Wicomico to one. Hayden Snelsire (seven RBIs) and Tristan McDonough (five RBIs) both had three hits, including two home runs apiece. Kevin Beck had four hits and four RBIs. Pitchers Matt Kinsey, Jack Rosenburg and Eli Saulsbury combined for six strikeouts in the victory. “We hit the ball pretty well, but not quite as good as we can. The boys always have po-

tential to do better,” McDonough said. “We have high standards from top to bottom.” Berlin was scheduled to play West Salisbury yesterday, Thursday. The tournament is double-elimination and the winner will meet the loser of the July 5 East Wicomico— Fruitland game on Saturday. The 10-11year-old District 8 championship title game will take place Monday or Tuesday. Berlin players have their eyes on another district trophy and repeating as state champions. “That’s as far as we can go this year because there’s no regional tournament [in the 10-11-year-old division],” McDonough said. Last year was the first time there was a regional competition in the 9-10-year-old age group. Next year, as 12-year-olds, the Berlin boys have a chance to advance to the Little League World Series. n MAJOR LEAGUE: The Berlin Major League team, made

up of 11 12-year-olds, was scheduled to begin its All-Star season yesterday, Thursday. The boys have been practicing regularly since mid-June and Manager Bill Cioccio said the team is “really strong.” “Six of the 11 players played travel ball together and three additional kids also played travel ball together,” he said. “They’re a tight group with a high level of experience.” The team was set to open its season on July 5 against its biggest rival, West Salisbury. On Saturday, Pocomoke will travel up the road to compete against Berlin at the Northern Worcester Athletic Complex at 1 p.m. On Monday, the Berlin squad will head to Crisfield for competition. The top two teams in Pools A and B will advance to the playoffs. “The competition is always strong because all the kids are All-Stars, but if we show up to the ball games and play the way we’re capable of, we should do well,” Cioc-

cio said. “The kids are excited. They’re good ball players and they’ve been working really hard.” n JUNIOR LEAGUE: The Junior League team, made up of five 13-year-olds and nine 14-year-olds, pulled out a 9-7 victory over Delmar last Saturday on its home field in Berlin. Delmar scored one run in the top of the first, but Berlin pitcher Bailey Littleton helped his cause, driving in two runs in the bottom of the inning. Berlin tacked on five runs in the third to gain a 7-1 advantage. Delmar cut the lead to two, scoring four runs in the fourth inning. Berlin tallied a run in the bottom of the fourth to go ahead 8-5. The visiting team got to within one (87) in the fifth, but Berlin added an insurance run in the sixth and held on to win. “I thought the kids played really great. They battled through and never gave up,” said Manager Mike Forrest. Littleton did a “fabulous job” on the mound, Forrest said. In five and two-third innings, he struck out six and walked three. Gus Esham closed out the game, striking out one and walking one. Both players went 2-for-4 at the plate. Will Sass, Pat Devenny and Cole Mumford each had two hits. Berlin’s next game in the double-elimination district tournament is Saturday on the road against Fruitland. “The competition is pretty evenly matched in the Junior League this year,” Forrest said. “We’re very optimistic. It’s a good group of kids and they all love to hit the ball hard.”

Congress sets 5-yr. extention for flood prog.

AGH medical staff additions

LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer (July 6, 2012) As reported by the National Association of Realtors, Congress approved a five-year extension to the National Flood Insurance Program last Friday. The NFIP covers 5.6 million people throughout the country. The five-year reauthorization will help alleviate buyer and seller concerns in thousands of communities nationwide since this reauthorization provides a longer-term peace of mind that flood insurance will be available where it’s required for a mortgage. “This has been a long, arduous battle,” said Moe Veissi, president of the National Association of Realtors. “The NFIP suffered through 25-plus short-term extensions, hobbling along for more than seven years without a long-term reauthorization.” Realtors throughout the country lobbied to reinstate the program, because failure to renew it would have further dampened the fragile housing market. The Associated Press reported that during the two-month lapse of the program back in 2010, approximately 1,400 home sales a day were being cancelled. The reauthorization of NFIP gives lenders and homeowners more certainty in the mortgage and real estate market place with available flood insurance for existing homeowners and those buying and selling The federal flood insurance program was created by Congress in 1968, due to a lack of private insurance carriers offering flood damage policies, leaving the government to cover the costs of disasters. The Associated Press also reported that the program suffered a blow financially with Hurricane Katrina and other storms in 2005 and now owes the Treasury nearly $18 billion dollars. Included in the five-year reauthorization plan are attempts to put the program on better financial footing, such as: ■ giving the government greater flexibility to raise rates. ■ ending federal coverage for some properties, including vacation homes. ■ moves to improve the floodplain mapping of the Federal Emergency Management Agency ■ streamlining FEMA efforts to raise or move homes that are sources of repetitive claims to the insurance fund.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (July 6, 2012) Italian, Australian, Spanish, Argentinean, Chilean and American wines, among others, as well as a large assortment of beer is available at the new Locals Beer & Wine store at Route 50 and Jerry Mack Road in the Royal Plus Business Center. “We try to suit every type of drinker,” said General Manager Greg Fields, who has more than 20 years experience in the bar, restaurant and retail industries. “I knew my wines from serving and bartending. I had some mentoring in the best wines to offer. The past six months I dove in with both feet and I did a lot of research on wine and beer.” The space, which was previously used by Royal Plus for storage, was transformed into a beer and wine store in less than one month. It opened on June 15. “We got a lot of work done, fast,” he said. Locals Beer & Wine carries approximately 325 varieties of wine, from very dry to sweet dessert blends. The wine shelves are 32-feet long and 8 feet high. The center isle shelves are dedicated to Maryland wines. “We have some exceptional wines that no one else carries. A large majority of the wines were hand picked by me,” Fields said. “We have the major names as well as novelty wines and chocolate wines and champagne. I’m definitely doing my home work and we plan on being one of the best.” More than 45 different beers are available. Fields also supports local breweries, including Dogfish Head, Evolution and 16 Mile. Mike’s Lemonade and Twisted Teas are also sold. Customers can special order beer and wine if the store doesn’t offer what they want. The business has only been open a few weeks, but many patrons have stopped in multiple times, Fields said. “We have a friendly staff and low, competi-

The Worcester County Arts Council elected a new slate of officers during its annual membership meeting on Sunday, June 10, at the Hotel Atlantic in Berlin. Former WCAC President Jim Falcon, who was leading the Arts Council’s Board of Directors since June 2006, passed the torch to Carol Dorman, who served on the board for many years, most recently as a Treasurer. Chris Welch, who has been serving as a secretary, has been elected as vice president. Rounding out the slate of elected officers are Monika Lilley, who will continue serving her second term as board secretary, and Dorothy Shelton, who will be serving as board treasurer. Nancy Howard and Lilley have been re-elected for the next three-year terms. New board directors, Brett Smith, Dick Jacobs, Holly Anderson, Carol Dorman, Pat Barrett, Marcy Snyder, Tamara Mills, Dorothy Shelton, and Davis Simpson have been elected for three-year board terms.

SERVERS: (July 6, 2012) Servers who work in bars and restaurants in Ocean City and the surrounding areas are invited to compete on Tuesday, July 10, in Seacrets’ third annual “Cool Runnins Fastest Server On Da Beach” competition. For a number of years, the annual Ocean City Waiter/ Waitress Cup was held each summer at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street. The last competition was held in 2000. Radio station X106.9 brought the competition back in August 2006, but it lasted just one year. There had not been a contest in the resort to determine the best server until Seacrets presented its version in 2010. During the inaugural Fastest Server On Da Beach Contest, approximately 40 contestants navigated through an obstacle course set up on the beach at the 49th Street hot spot. Last year, more than 50 competed. Registration for the third annual competition will begin at noon on July 10, and the races are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. The cost is $20 to participate. Servers must be 21 years of age. “I would love to have 75 to 100 [participants] this year,” said contest co-organizer Christine Komlos. “We hope to have a lot of local places represented.” Competitors will be timed as they race through an obstacle course while holding a tray with a wine glass, beer bottle and can of Red Bull. Contestants will receive unlimited Red Bull, a sponsor of the event, during the competition. The course will consist of weaving through tables and chairs, stepping in and out of tires on the ground, walking up and down a set of stairs and bending under a limbo stick. Participants will race in heats. Those with the fastest

Wing-eating contest features scorching sauce created from pepper ranked world’s hottest LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (July 6, 2012) Like your wings hot and spicy? If your motto is “the hotter the better,” then register to compete in The 19th Hole Bar & Grille’s inaugural Death Wing Contest, scheduled for Thursday, July 12. The wing sauce is made with the Ghost Chili Pepper. Rated a scorching 1,001,304 Scoville Heat Units (300 times hotter than a jalapeño), the ghost pepper was named the world’s hottest pepper on Earth by the Guinness Book of World Records. “They’re extremely hot,” said contest organizer Tabby Berkeridge. “This will be the grand release of them. They will be on our menu after the contest.”

Registration begins at 7 p.m. on July 12. The cost to participate in the timed contest is $20. The competition will start at 8 p.m. The winner will receive a trophy and be the first listed on the West Ocean City restaurant’s “Wall of Flame.” Anytime after the contest, people must eat 10 wings in order to make the wall. Prizes will also be awarded to the second- and thirdplace finishers. During the evening, musician Johnny Mojo will perform. There will also be giveaways and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds will benefit the local Children’s House by the Sea, a project of the Believe In Tomorrow National Children’s Foundation. “All of the events we do, we always donate to Believe

in Tomorrow,” Berkeridge said. Added Wayne Littleton, director of Children’s House by the Sea, “There are so many charities out there, it’s great that they picked us. It’s a nice surprise.” “We’re bringing down six families a week so any amount of money helps us here,” he said. Children’s House by the Sea provides ill children and their families a chance to vacation at the beach, during a time when they might not otherwise be able to afford a getaway on the coast. There are three resort facilities: a four-unit apartment building on 66th Street; a house on the bay at 28th Street, the first respite house in the country to focus on the See WING-EATING on Page 56

Multi-talented artist Fred Peterson will be judging the Beverly Bassford Memorial Exhibit at the Art League of Ocean City. Peterson, who earned a doctorate degree in art history from the University of Minnesota in 1961, taught studio art and art history from 1961 to 1973. From 1973 to 2001, his teaching was entirely in art history while he continued to work in watercolor and acrylic media. He was also the curator for the University of Minnesota, Morris Fine Arts Center Gallery during his tenure there. He retired from teaching in 2003 and moved to Salisbury with his wife, Vicky Demos. He has been active in the work of the AI&G in Salisbury since 2005. The public is invited to the Art League of Ocean City’s reception for the Bevery Bassford Memorial Exhibit from 5-7 p.m. on July 6, at the ALOC temporary location at the Ocean Plaza at 94th Street. Refreshments will be served and admission is free. For more information, call 410524-9433 or visit www.artleagueofoceancity.org.

Ocean City has something for everyone: movies, music IRISH KEMP ■ Contributing Writer (July 6, 2012) Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Time doesn’t fly for Delmarva retirees — it zooms by. As I was watching the dancers at the Harpoon Hanna’s Wednesday afternoon happy hour, memories of my American Bandstand days came to mind. I’d spend time hanging over ye’ olde ironing board with my eyes glued to that 12-inch screen, while fishing through a bodaciously humongous basket of freshly damn, oops, I meant, dampened clothes. I was a multi-tasker before multi-tasking was even cool. The eyes in the back of the head flitted all over the room, sorta on a damage control mission, checking on an assortment of kids, mine and the neighbors. To this day, I have nightmares about the green, moldy mounds we left behind, hovering over my bed. Could be why I’m not a morning person. So much to do and so many places to go around our town for visitors and locals. My advice to vacationers would be to check out downtown’s fabulous, almost

Fruit or vegetable?How some edibles are classifiedis surprising FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Strawberries neither; called ‘false fruit’ by botanists DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (July 6, 2012) There is nothing more tantalizing than biting into a sweet, luscious strawberry. The juicy, heart-shaped fruit is a favorite among children and adults. But are strawberries really a fruit? In order to define whether a plant is a vegetable or fruit, one must consider which part of the plant he is eating. While vegetables are defined as plants cultivated for their edible parts, the botanical term “fruit” is more specific. The sweet treasures are the portion of the plant that contain seeds. Fruits develop from the ovary of the flower after fertilization and form a protective covering around the seeds. People tend to classify an item as a fruit or vegetable depending on whether it is served in a sweet or savory dish. The classification does not always match the botanically correct categorization. For example, tomatoes, cucumber, avocados, eggplant, peppers and squash are considered fruits. The intriguing grouping also incorporates nuts. Contrary to popular belief, certain nuts are considered a fruit. The next time you pop an almond, hazelnut, macadamia nut, chestnut or peanut in

your mouth, remember you are eating a fruit. If you think the discussion ends here, think again. Purpose intended is coming to a conclusion. Berries are the exception to the rule. The technical definition of a berry is a fleshy fruit produced from a single seed. Strawberries are not considered a fruit or vegetable. Botanists call strawberries a “false fruit.” The edible part does not form from the ovary like other fruits, but from the part of the stem that holds the ovaries. The brownish or white specks are the actual fruit. Now that we have established the correct classification, we can move onto the subject of strawberry history. Strawberries are indigenous to both the northern and southern hemispheres. The first mention of strawberries occurred sometime between 234-149 BC in the writings of Cato, a Roman senator. The first description published stated they were mostly for the medicinal uses and not for the benefits of the fruit. In the 12th century, Saint Hildegard von Bingen declared strawberries were unfit to eat because they grew close to the ground. It was thought that the fruit was contaminated by snakes and toads that might have touched them. This caused many people to avoid eating them. However, Swedish botanist Charles Linnaeus put this superstition to rest by engaging in a diet of nothing but the

mouthwatering fruit. Strawberries are very nutritious. Onehalf cup of the succulent, sweet fruit supplies more fiber than a slice of whole wheat bread, and more than 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. Now is the time for beautifying one’s yard. Strawberry plants add uniqueness that embellishes any garden. The perennials can be easily grown in containers and hanging pots. Although growing this fruit is not cumbersome or complicated, watering is an important factor. Strawberries contain 95 percent water, and if sufficient water is not adequately provided to the plant, the berries will not grow properly. Fresh strawberry pie is so delicious and simple to make. Keys to this summer dessert are sweet strawberries and the appropriate thickener. Sure-Jell produces a filling that is too firm and cornstarch yields a binder that is too thin. But together they create a glaze that is perfect for strawberry pie. Make certain that you use Sure-Jell engineered for low- or nosugar recipes (packaged in the pink box as oppose to the yellow box); otherwise, the glaze will not set properly. Homemade crust and whip cream are options. Following is a basic strawberry pie recipe. Enjoy, it is so, so good!

1. Bake piecrust according to directions on package. Set aside and allow to cool. 2. For the filling: Place 1 1/2 cups strawberries and Fragoli in a food processor. Puree until smooth. 3. Whisk sugar, cornstarch, Sure-Jell, and salt in medium saucepan. Stir in berry puree. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly and bring to a boil. Continue boiling, scraping sides and bottom of pan to prevent scorching. Cook for 2 minutes to ensure cornstarch is fully cooked. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in lemon juice. Set aside and allow to cool. 4. Combine whole strawberries with strawberry filling until all of the berries are coated. Gently place strawberries in pie shell. Carefully arrange berries for a dramatic presentation. Refrigerate pie until thoroughly chilled, approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Serve immediately.

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor socializing with family and friends, but an irksome workplace situation could intrude. No use grumbling, Lamb. Just do it, and then get back to the fun times. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) There’s still time for you Ferdinands and Fernandas to relax and sniff the roses. But a major work project looms and soon will demand much of your attention through the 23rd. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your enthusiasm persuades even the toughest doubters to listen to what you’re proposing. But don’t push too hard, or you’ll push them away. Moderate for best results. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels are rising, and you feel you can handle anything the job requires. That’s great. But don’t isolate yourself. Keep your door open to your workplace colleagues. LEO (July 23 August 22) A workplace change could lead to that promotion you’ve been hoping for. But you’ll have to face some tough competition before the Lion can claim his or her share of the goodies. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your rigidity regarding a difficult workplace situation could be the reason your colleagues aren’t rushing to your assistance. Try being more flexible in your demands. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) That uneasy mood could be your Libran inner voice reminding you that while it’s great to be with your new friends, you need to take care not to ignore your old ones. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A sudden spate of criticism could shake the Scorpion’s usually high sense of self-confidence. Best advice: You made a decision you believed in — now defend it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your reluctance to help restart a stalled relationship could be traced to unresolved doubts about your partner’s honesty. Rely on a trusted friend’s advice. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The capricious Sea Goat is torn between duty and diversion. Best advice: Do both. Tend to your workaday chores, then go out and enjoy your well-earned fun time. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Cutting back on some of your activities for a few days helps restore your energy levels. You should be feeling ready to tackle your many projects early next week. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A co-worker might be secretly carping about your work to mutual colleagues. But associates will come to your defense, and the situation will ultimately work to your advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do — especially if it’s in the world of the performing arts.

Alcohol, mixed with heat and water, creates dangerous trio ON GUARD

Beach patrol works to keep visitors safe, enforce rules KRISTIN JOSON ■ Contributing Writer

PHOTO COURTESY OCBP

Surf rescue technicians are required to monitor and enforce all Ocean City ordinances and state laws. Above, Billy Eckert of the Ocean City Beach Patrol jogs among the beach population in search of any infractions. If seen, he would explain the laws to anyone not in compliance.

(July 6, 2012) The beach might seem like a good place to drink alcoholic beverages, but it isn’t the safest place to do so and it is prohibited in Ocean City. Compounded by the heat, the dehydrating and disorienting effects of alcohol and impaired judgment, you can understand why Ocean City does not allow alcohol on its beaches. Alcohol depletes your body of the vital fluids it needs to keep you up and running throughout the day, and it can also give swimmers a false sense of confidence when

it comes to swimming in the ocean. Almost every lifeguard has a story about rescuing a swimmer who drank too much alcohol. People who have a healthy understanding of the ocean and their own swimming ability might not usually head out very far, but after a few drinks, they might find themselves feeling braver. They take risks they usually would not and can end up hurting themselves in any number of ways, from riding a wave into the shallow water and injuring themselves or swimming out farther than they should. Years ago, a young man who was in town celebrating his high school graduation had one too many drinks and took a headfirst dive into two inches of water. He is now paralyzed from the neck down. Over time it has become clear that many diving related accidents and most of the heat-related illnesses have a direct correlation to alcohol consumption. And even more interesting, when it comes to heat emergencies, the alcohol consumption could have been more than 12 hours before the incident. Alcohol, heat and salt water can be a dangerous combination. Additionally, most of our pedestrian accidents, several of which are fatal each year, involve alcohol for either the driver or the pedestrian who stepped into the path of the oncoming vehicle. If you’re going to drink, don’t swim, and take a bus or cab to get home safe! In addition to Maryland’s underage drinking laws, Ocean City also has laws and ordinances. Those that relate to alcohol are: ■ Alcoholic beverages may not be consumed in public. This includes any street, avenue, alley and sidewalk, Boardwalk, parking lot, on the beach or in a vehicle. ■ Carrying an open container of alcohol is a violation. This includes beach areas, sidewalks and the Boardwalk. Violation of these laws is a criminal offense and could lead to arrest, and will absolutely require another trip to Ocean City, but this time for a court date. We hope you will have a wonderful time on your vacation in Ocean City, but we also want you to remember to drink when and where it is safe and legal to do so.

Six families (between 25 and 40 people) fill the houses each week throughout the summer, typically May to September. In the off-season — the winter, spring and fall — at least three or four families on average stay at the facilities each week. Last year, more than 160 families (approximately 800 people) vacationed at the houses.

Paddle to raise funds for suicide prevention efforts (July 6, 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 go 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 distrib-

utes 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 410632-3971 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, as well as additional information about Jesse’s the Paddle and the scholarship program, are available online at www.jessespaddle.org or by calling 443-982-2716.

Local boys recognized for top achievements in ‘Royal Rangers’ (July 6, 2012) Approximately 100 boys and girls ages 3-18 from various churches and backgrounds convene on Wednesday nights during the school year to participate in boys’ and girls’ clubs at The Worship Center in Berlin. The 2011-12 meetings ended May 23, with the annual awards ceremony during which badges earned throughout the year were presented in front of family and friends. On June 17, eight boys were honored for top achievements in the boys’ adventure program, Royal Rangers. Ron Foreman, David Gears, Taylor Bradshaw, Grant Gabell, Joshua Schmucki and Luke McQuay were presented with Certificates of Merit, letters from National Director Doug Marsh and the Bronze Medal of Achievement. Two students, Jacob Rush and Joshua Simpson, advanced even further to receive the Silver Medal of Achievement, which is the second highest ranking in Royal Rangers. These two will be eligible for the highest level, the Gold Medal of Achievement (equivalent to the Boy Scouts’ Eagle Scout rank), in about 1.5 years. Throughout the year, the Royal Rangers learned many skills, including camping, knot tying, shooting, archery, rocketry, carpentry, hiking and bicycling while participating in group camping, pow-wows, hiking, pinewood derby and bicycle adventures. At the same time, they learned scripture, character traits and Christian values. The national Royal Rangers Program, created to “Reach,

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the local Children’s House by the Sea, a project of the Believe In Tomorrow National Children’s Foundation. The organization received approximately $800 from last year’s event. “They really put on a nice event. Everyone really seems to enjoy it,” said Wayne Littleton, director of Children’s House by the Sea. “It’s a lot of fun to watch. There’s a lot of laughter. It’s just a great time.” Children’s House by the Sea provides ill children and their families a chance to vacation at the beach, during a time when they might not otherwise be able to afford a getaway on the coast. There are three resort facilities: a fourunit apartment building on 66th Street; a house on the bay at 28th Street, the first respite house in the country to focus on the needs of military pediatrics; and a townhouse in Fenwick Island, Del. Rarely is there a time when the facilities are empty. Six families (between 25 and 40

people) fill the houses each week throughout the summer, typically May to September. In the off-season — the winter, spring and fall — at least three or four families on average stay at the facilities each week. Last year, more than 160 families (approximately 800 people) vacationed at the houses. Children’s House by the Sea volunteers will be on hand to assist with the contest and to sell raffle tickets for a $2,000 gas card. The second-place winner will receive a $500 grocery store gift card. Raffle tickets cost $1 each, or purchase seven for $5. The drawing will be held on Sept. 23, during Ocean City’s Sunfest celebration. Tickets for the organization’s annual Beach Bash, featuring food from more than two dozen local restaurants and music, among other festivities, at Seacrets on Sept. 24, cost $50, and will also be available during the server contest. Or, guests may purchase a $100 raffle ticket, which includes admission to the Beach Bash and a chance to take home one of two $10,000 prizes. The winner of the server contest will receive a $100 ticket. The second- and third-place finishers will be awarded a pair of general admission tickets to the Beach Bash. There is no cost to watch the July 10 server competition. For more information, call Seacrets at 410-524-4900 and ask for Komlos.

GET TO THE OTHER SIDE.

No matter which half of the Twin Capes you’re on, there’s always more to see and explore waiting on the other side. And there’s no better way to get there than the Cape May–Lewes Ferry. From the waterparks in Delaware, to Victorian architecture in Cape May, if you aren’t visiting both sides of the Twin Capes, you’re missing half the fun.

Craft series begins July 11, at museum (July 6, 2012) The Julia A. Purnell Museum is announcing its latest summer offering for children: a series of heritage craft activities during which children can learn about history through hands-on projects. The activities will take place the second and fourth Wednesdays in July and August, from 1-3 p.m. The series will begin July 11, when guests will create thaumatropes, a motion toy of the Victorian era. Participants will discover how children in the past created motion toys that were inspired by the new technology of moving pictures. “Letting children experience history hands-on is a really effective way of getting them interested in the way people lived in the past,” said Claire Otterbein, executive director of the Julia A. Purnell Museum. Because of support from the BerlinOcean City Optimist Club, general admission is free for children all year in 2012, and this includes the Heritage Arts for Kids workshops. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is not needed; simply drop in between 1 and 3 p.m. Kids should expect to spend about 15 to 30 minutes working on their projects. The Heritage Arts for Kids program is made possible by grant funding from the Worcester County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council. To find out more about events in July and August, contact the museum at 410-632-0515 or visit www.purnellmuseum.com.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to view some of the finest homes nestled around the bay. This year’s tour also marks the beginning of the new Center for the Arts in Ocean City. The foundation of the new 7,500-square-foot Art Center is in and framing will begin shortly. “Eight years ago we started the home tour as a major fundraiser for the ALOC to relocate to a bigger home,” said ALOC President, Rina Thaler said. “Now it’s actually happening at our existing location on 94th Street and all of our hard work will see fruition.” The tour will kick off with a cocktail party sponsored by the Gateway Grand at the home of Palmer Gillis on Sept. 12 from 6-8 p.m. Tickets for the cocktail party coast $75 per person and may be purchased by calling the ALOC at 410-524-9433 or online at www.artleagueofoceancity.org. The cost of the two-day home tour is $30 and tickets may also be purchased from the ALOC. The Art League of Ocean City is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the visual arts to the community through education, exhibits, scholarship programs and public service projects.

Andrew to conduct design and color workshop in July (July 6, 2012) Artist and teacher, Dolores Andrew, will be conducting a twoday Design and Color workshop at the Art League of Ocean City on July 26 and 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, with an hour lunch break. Color is a very personal subject. It relates to emotion, personal taste and religion, not to mention the world around us, inside and out. Design is also very personal. We create a design each day as we dress or choose design in the vehicle we drive, and we should be aware of design in the products that we buy. With some guidelines on their meaning and use, color and design can be most helpful in analyzing and improving our work. With lecture, demonstration, some handouts and a few simple exercises, this class will guide students to a better understanding of these important principles in art. One day will be spent on each subject. Andrew works in a variety of media, including pen and ink, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and scratchboard. She is represented in public and private collections throughout the United States. She is basically a realist, with a crisp, understated representational style. Her work, while detailed and accurate, has an air of preciseness and cool briskness that avoids being stilted or rigid. Her more loosely drawn line work in pen and ink shows her interest in the character and mood created by economy of line. When her subjects are buildings or landscapes, they range from the famous landmarks to the mundane. Her still life paintings are usually flowers. See her work online at www.doloresandrewdesigns.com. Cost of the two-day workshop is $55 for ALOC members and $65 for non-members. There is a $6 materials fee payable to the instructor. To register, call the Art League at 410-524-9433 or register online at www.artleagueofoceancity.org.

Stephen Decatur graduate places third in Facebook app contest Competition focused on cyberbullying, encourages bystanders to take action LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (July 6, 2012) Alexa Alpern, a 2012 graduate of Stephen Decatur High School, recently placed third in Reach Out’s national “Don’t Just Stand By” Teen Facebook App Developer Competition. Eighteen teens from all over the country participated in the contest. The Inspire USA Alexa Alpern Foundation, the nonprofit national organization behind the youth mental health site ReachOut.com, with the support of the ESA Foundation, announced on June 19 the winners of the “Don’t Just Stand By” Teen Facebook App Developer Competition, which called on teens ages 13-18 to create a Facebook app that encouraged bystanders of cyberbullying to take action.

Her game, which teaches financial literacy skills, through the character making smart purchases and avoiding debt, qualified her for last weekend’s national competition in San Antonio, Texas. Alpern didn’t advance to the finals, but she had a wonderful time meeting high school students from around the country, her mother, Linda said. “They had [more than] 50 students in gaming and simulation that they narrowed down to the top 12 and then to the top five. Alexa worked so hard on this with a huge poster that went along with a computer presentation of 20 minutes,” she said. “She felt that the three judges really liked her created game … The opportunity to be at the Future Business Leaders National Conference representing Maryland, still was a very big honor.” Added her daughter, “The experience is like none other. You get to meet people from all different parts of the United States and explore various workshops held by the conference. I was very happy to have gone on the trip. It’s a life changing experience, with all that has gone on during the conference.” Alpern plans to major in computer animation at Edinboro University, in Pennsylvania, when she enters as freshman this fall.

OPEN HOUSE FRI, SAT & SUN 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.

Museum to present free concert (July 6, 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 www.taylorhousemuseum.org.
