Jeeps get beach obstacle course Council surprised by Jeep Week request, but city depts. worked it out in advance

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Despite some confusion concerning OC Jeep Week organizers’ request for a beach obstacle course at this year’s rally, the City Council on Monday unanimously approved Live Wire Media’s bid to give Jeep enthusiasts something new to do later this month. Lisa Mitchell, special events coordinator, presented to the council a request to offer a new component for the annual OC Jeep Week, which this year is scheduled for Aug. 23-26. “The producers would like to add an obstacle course, from Thursday to Saturday, north of the pier to Dorchester Street,” she said. The course would host two shifts of 150 jeeps starting at 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with an hour-and-a-half break for course maintenance, and a second round of participants competing from 2-5 p.m., Mitchell said.

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) A public hearing for a reclassification of E-1 Estate zoned properties along Route 611 and South Point Road, a proposal that drew wails of protest, ended decisively Tuesday, with the Worcester County Commissioners rejecting it with a 6-0 vote and one abstention. On Nov. 7, 2017, the county commissioners directed the Department of Development Review and Permitting to ‘It is not a consider a sectional rezoning of propersectional ties currently zoned rezoning of all E-1 Estate District of South located along Route Point.’ 611 to South Point Road to a R-1 Rural Development Residential DisDirector trict. The planning Edward Tudor commission had given a favorable recommendation of the proposed comprehensive reclassification. Development Director Edward Tudor stood before the county commissioners during the hearing to advocate the redistricting. Tudor cited some concerns and miscommunications audience members might have about the reclassification. “It is not a sectional rezoning of all of South Point,” Tudor said. “This really arose from four rezoning cases which occurred last year, [four] separate properties wanting rezoning from E-1 to R-1.” In 1978, the majority of zoning districts from Route 376 to South Point See NO Page 7

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) After a three-year delay, de Lazy Lizard Restaurant & Bar on First Street received approval for a revised site plan that will permit parking lot repaving to begin this fall. Zoning Administrator Frank Hall told the Planning Commission on Tuesday that a years-long Delmarva Power operation on First Street tied the hands of co-owner Steve Carullo and held up the site plan approval. The power company project entailed boring under the bay from First Street so an underwater cable could be run from Ocean City to a West Ocean City substation. The drilling apparatus, support vehicles and materials all but blocked access to the Lazy Lizard property. “That process has [caused] extreme disruption to [his] business over time, which is why we have finally gotten to the point now of ... finalizing... a site plan approval for the de Lazy Lizard and its associated parking lots’” Hall said. Carullo, who also operates Dead Freddies Island Grill, 63rd Street bayside, bought de Lazy Lizard in 2015 from Todd Hayes and Wayne Odachowski. “This will sort of immortalize the site plan into our city records to show that the de Lazy Lizard is compliant

with … floor area … ratio of outdoor seating versus indoor seating … and adequate parking based on … code,” he said. Hall said the site plan includes 116 parking spots between four adjacent parcels, while the First Street establishment is only required to have 102 parking spaces in total.

‘By directing the lighting in a different direction, all the glare complaints have been concluded,” he said....We don’t have any more lighting complaints.’ Zoning Administrator Frank Hall After approving the site plan, Hall said Carullo could apply for permits to repave the parking lots, install three-foot tall vinyl picket fencing and install landscaping for storm water management. “Many of the ... lots were used by Delmarva Power, and were torn up, beat up, and abused by the equipment that they needed to have on site,” Hall said. “I can tell you … he is anxious to get rocking and rolling, so to speak, on the parking lot,” he said. Hall said, contingent on city ap-

proval, Carullo plans to have paving contractors start working in the fall. Previous complaints from neighboring properties about glare from associated parking lot lighting also have been resolved, Hall said. “By directing the lighting in a different direction, all the glare complaints have been concluded,” he said. “We don’t have any more lighting complaints.” Included in the site plan is a condition that the parking lots remain obligated to de Lazy Lizard, which Hall noted would require the four parcels to be deed restricted. “With the bureaucratic nightmare he’s been through to get to this point, we’re satisfied the parking lots are going to be obligated to de Lazy Lizard,” he said. “At some point, he will have to prepare the legal documents to have them deed restricted … we just want to get him rolling.” Planning chairwoman Pam Buckley, after inquiring with Carullo about the required time frames, suggested the legal paperwork be completed by year’s end. “I’m OK with that just because of what he’s been going through,” she said. The commission voted 5-0, with members Palmer Gillis and Peck Miller absent, to approve the revised site plan.

Suspected sea chest found Worcester moving forward in water was wooden barrel for upgraded fiber optics Couple stumble upon item embedded in sand and call police after finding a bone

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Dive teams scurried to West Ocean City on Tuesday after a couple notified police they had found an apparent “seaman’s chest” that contained a piece of bone. Lt. Ed Schreier, with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, said the discovery occurred around 9:30 a.m. roughly 20-feet offshore from Homer Gudelsky Park, commonly referred to as ‘Stinky Beach,’ by area residents. “An out-of-town couple from Ellicott City were in the water and stumbled over something embedded in the sand,” he said. Schreier said the couple tried and failed to dislodge their find, so opened it to inspect the contents. “They reached in and pulled out a shoe and broken pottery,” he said. “One object they pulled out appeared to be a bone.” Alarmed and uncertain if the remains were human or animal, the couple contacted authorities, Schreier said. Sheriff’s deputies at the scene believed the item was a bone and contacted the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation, which came to the same conclusion, thus leading to a visit from an investigator from the

Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Meanwhile, Maryland State Police and Maryland Natural Resources Police Dive teams attempted to remove the container from the sandy bottom, but were thwarted by a rising tide. As what had been a half-foot of water rose to five feet, the object disappeared from sight. “Visibility was less than a foot and the current was moving fast,” Schreier said. “Divers had to diligently search the bottom floor of the bay by hand to relocate the object.” With the setting sun further hampering visibility, Schreier said the decision was made to return on Wednesday. The response resumed about 11 a.m. on Wednesday and dive teams were able to wade in shallow water and more easily locate the item. “After examination, it was determined that the object was a barrel made of wood and it was deteriorating quickly,” Schreier said. “Divers methodically began digging around it in an attempt to remove it from the sand,” he said. “Those attempts were unsuccessful due to the barrel falling apart.” Next, Schreier said a decision was made to dig out the inside of the barrel to identify the contents, with only sand, clams and mussels uncovered. At that point, Schreier said the operation was shut down with the suspected bone sent to Medical Examiner’s Office to be identified.

Commissioners approve project to overhaul entire communications system

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Work will proceed on the upgrades to Worcester County government’s emergency communications system, following the county commissioners’ approval Tuesday of the overall project. The commissioners acted on a request from Director of Emergency Services Fred Webster, who said obtaining the commissioners’ permission to begin work was one of the final steps to be taken in the total overhaul emergency communications network. The county has 33.4 miles of existing infrastructure and almost four miles of aerial fiber, plus almost 17 miles of underground cable. Webster asked the commissioners on July 3 for permission to

apply to the Maryland Emergency Number Systems Board for $166,718.89. He and Assistant Director James Hamilton, along with representatives of Verizon, appeared before the Emergency Number Systems Board with representatives from Verizon and received full funding for the project on July 26. “Your approval will get the vendors getting started on that work,” Webster told the commissioners on Tuesday. The first stage out of three subprojects will be the installation of fiber conduits performed by Skyline Technology Solutions. The second phase will have Verizon providing fiber installation and termination routed through two separate Verizon Central Offices. The final stage will relocate existing Audio Code gateways, install and configure new Verizon digital circuits at each host location and install/configure/test the new 911 vehicles.

OC thinks twice before auctioning bus, cars Councilman Dare questions decision to sell vehicles on govdeals.com; will examine

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Hoping to be fiscally savvy, the Ocean City Council will reconsider the inclusion of three Ford Crown Victoria’s and a bus on the list of surplus property proposed for online auction at GovDeals.com. City Attorney Heather Stansbury told the council on Monday the city has previously sold surplus vehicles and equipment at auction through govdeals.com, but Councilman Dennis Dare questioned the inclusion of a 2003 bus donated to the city from the Maryland Transportation Authority. “That might be the one we got from

the MTA with the understanding ... it doesn’t have the grant conditions on it,” he said. “We were able to use for it, for example, to take the police department to the firing range in Newark.” Dare said the MTA usually includes stipulations to limit competition with private sector transportation when granting a bus to a municipality. “When we acquired bus, it was with the understanding that we would be able to … take city personnel someplace,” he said. “Do we have another vehicle we will be able to do that with?” City Manager Doug Miller said a replacement bus is not on hand, which caused Dare to inquire why the motor coach was being put on the auction block. Council President Lloyd Martin pointed out that the bus odometer has

BAHAMA AS

registered more than 420,000 miles. “It’s twice as much as other buses we’re getting rid of,” he said. In lieu of retaining the bus, Dare asked if alternative plans existed. “If keeping this was an option, then we needed to do it,” he said. “If it’s got a transmission out that’s going to cost more than the bus is worth, then I understand that.” Martin proposed adding the discussion to the Transportation Committee meeting next week. “Having a bus was a great asset,” he said. “We need to try and figure out what a plan B would be.” Dare also asked about using the Ford Crown Victorias for other purposes, including the “Choose Your Ride,” public safety campaign. “[Councilman]Hartman brought up the concept of using a police car

with a cab,” he said. “Would one of those three vehicles be one we would use to do that?” Miller said an alternative source is being considered. “We have several Crown Victoria’s being used for dummy cars in neighborhoods,” he said. “It was my thought one of those would be transformed into the Choose Your Ride vehicle.” Councilman Tony DeLuca restated Martin’s earlier sentiment about further reviewing the vehicles being discussed. “Can we pull the questionable ones off list and let the Transportation Committee review next Tuesday and they’ll either stay on the list or we keep them?” he said. Miller said the bus and trio of cars would be examined in more detail before heading to the auction block. Hartman said although the returns for items sold on the GovDeals website was substantial at first, many recent sales amounts seem below par. “At some point we need to check and make sure we’re still doing the right thing,” he said. “There may be some equipment that would do better here locally.” Martin said Procurement Manager Catrice Parsons would delve into the matter and return with financial estimates.

COUNTY BRIEFS By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer

Rezoning hearing set (Aug. 10, 2018) A public hearing for a rezoning case near Snow Hill was scheduled for Sept. 4. Edward Tudor, director of the Development, Review and Permitting Department, said the applicant asked to rezone approximately 4.7 acres of land on the northwestern side of Market Street, just outside of Snow Hill corporate limits, from A-1 Agricultural District to C-2 General Commercial District. That area was first zoned in 1960 with a M-1 Light Industrial District classification. This classification was retained during the 1992 comprehensive rezoning but was rezoned in the 2009 to its current A-1 designation. The property was formerly used as a research facility for a poultry company and is now vacant. The case was reviewed by the Planning Commission at its July 5 meeting and given a favorable recommendation. The application originally called for the rezoning of six acres but was revised to remove 1.3 acres that lie

Tax credits granted (Aug. 10, 2018) Two local nonprofits organizations received tax credits totaling $16,354.32 from the county commissioners in Snow Hill on Tuesday. County Finance officer Phillip Thompson presented two tax credit requests at the commissioner’s meeting, one from the Berlin Community Improvement Association and the other from the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce for the 2018-19 fiscal year. The Berlin Community Improvement Association claimed a tax credit of $3,420.99 for transforming the former Flower Street Elementary School in Berlin into a meeting place for educational social, social and recreational activities on a non-profit basis. The Ocean City Chamber of Commerce also received a tax credit totaling $12,933.33. The county commissioners gave unanimous approval to both.

No zoning reclassification for land in South Point area Continued from Page 1 were R-1, R-1A, R-3 Multiple-Family Residential District, B-2 General Business District, and A-1 Agricultural District. In 1992 much of the area was comprehensively reclassified to E-1. An E-1 District is a transitional zone between agricultural and residential zoning districts, which can allow agricultural uses such as poultry and hog houses, commercial greenhouses and more. The major difference between a R1 and an E-1 district is density. A R-1 Rural Residential District density is one building lot per 40,000 square feet, or one lot per one acre. An E-1 Estate District has a density of one building lot per two acres. This reclassification was retained in the 2009 comprehensive rezoning. Tudor testified that not all segments of the South Point Road would be affected by the rezoning. But, several citizens still testified against the reclassification. “Assateague Coastal Trust remains steadfast in our opposition to a sectional map amendment of the E-1 parcels south of Assateague Road along the Route 611 corridor to an R1 designation,” said Kathy Phillips, executive director and Assateague coast keeper during the hearing. “Upzoning the entire 5,000 acres

south of Assateague Road from E-1, A-1, and A-2 to R-1 will effectively change the zoning from a maximum of two lots per acre to one lot per acre,” Berlin resident Dave Wilson said during the hearing. “To make any zoning changes the county would need to prove a mistake in zoning on a given parcel; it’s part of a comprehensive rezoning study; or there has been a change in the character of the neighborhood. Our attorney suggests that hasn’t been fulfilled.” County Commissioner Bud Church moved to vote down the Planning Commission recommendation, stating the entire E-1 District should be reviewed as a whole during the next comprehensive plan review scheduled to take place in the next few years. “I’ve been a Realtor for 48 years,” Church said. “The uniqueness of today is, I think this is the first time in 48 years I’ve agreed with Dave Wilson 100 percent, and Kathy Phillips 100 percent and Coastal Bays 100 percent. I don’t think that’s ever happened before.” Commissioner Joe Metricic agreed and added his support by seconding the motion.  The Department of Development Review and Permitting was directed to conduct further studies and appeal for a new case in later years.

OC budget amendment adds $5.9M

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) The Ocean City Council on Monday approved on first reading a fiscal year 2018 budget amendment that increased the overall budget by more than $5.9 million. Budget Manager Jennie Knapp, who presented the financial updates during a council work session the week before, said the fiscal 2018 general fund, which is just one component of the budget, would increase by approximately $1.2 million. “We do receive quite a bit of grant

Illegal distribution of menus nets OC restaurant big bill

(Aug. 10, 2018) The Ocean City Police Department is conducting an investigation into the illegal distribution of restaurant menus at several hotels throughout the resort. During the course of this investigation, officers cited two employees of White House Pizza located at 15th Street with a fine of $1,000. This investigation is ongoing. The Ocean City Police Department would like to remind business owners of a municipal ordinance restricting the distribution of advertisements and handbills in the Town of Ocean City. The ordinance states, “it shall be unlawful for any person or persons to cast, throw, place or distribute any advertisements, circulars, handbills or wastepaper in the vestibules, doorways, porches or yards of private property or upon private vehicles, from which they may be blown upon and into the public streets, alleys or public places within the corporate limits of Ocean City.” The penalty for violating this ordinance is up to $1,000. Repeated violations could trigger a business license suspension hearing before town officials. This nuisance crime often causes excessive litter and leaves properties unsightly. Any property owner that experiences this ordinance violation is asked to contact the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6600.

money and donations during the fiscal year,” she said at the work session. “If we don’t add them to the ordinance, we don’t have the legal authority to spend them.” The majority of budget increase is from a nearly $5 million state grant for the Transportation Department to upgrade its 65th Street campus. “The [state is] funding their portion over a three-year period and this is the first year of that,” she said. The budget alterations do not require additional funding from real property taxes. Knapp said budget amendments are used to adjust revenue and expense projections for fiscal year end. Among the highlights on the revenue side of the ledger were higher dollar figures from taxes, licenses, service charges and revenue for other agencies. “We’re recognizing other taxes in the amount of $101,552, which is an increase in income tax over the projected amount,” she said. Knapp also said fees for licenses and permits went up $180,000. “The majority of that is for building permits at $100,000,” she said. There has also been a roughly $60,000 increase in room licensing

and noise permit fees, Knapp said. “There was a letter sent out in the beginning of the year that directly led to this increase in revenue,” she said. The city also received $798,000 in revenue from other agencies, with the Maryland Office of Tourism Development leading the pack, Knapp said. “The largest is the state tourism grant at almost $576,000,” she said. “We never include that in the original budget because we don’t know what the amount is going to be, and it does increase from year to year.” Fines and forfeitures dropped, principally from parking, by more than $71,000, Knapp said. “We were able to reduce the amount we thought we were going to be taking from appropriated fund balance because we’re recognizing other types of revenue,” she said. Although revenue estimates were reduced by a total of $143,000 in the Transportation Fund, Knapp said the figure was initially more than $236,000 before a $93,000 savings was identified in the expense line item. “At the end of the fiscal year we will be doing a thorough analysis of the transportation fund balance,” she said.

West OC hotel proposal gets rejected by county planning By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) A proposed hotel’s site plan was rejected during a planning commission meeting in Snow Hill on Thursday, Aug. 2. Golf Course Road Development presented for review a site plan for a fourstory, 46-unit hotel/motel in West Ocean City, but traffic concerns and a loading zone issue earned it the commission’s disapproval by a 4-2 vote. In the site plan, a minimum of 46 parking spaces were suggested, with two marked disabled parking spots designated in the front. Traffic concerns were introduced regarding the functionality of the driveway in that customers would not be able to turn around at the entrance to load. The company proposed a solution of placing a connector by the hotel to ease

traffic flow. A lack of a loading dock was another major concern for the planning commission, as well as a location for trash removal. The developers offered to take an extra parking spot to be designated as the loading zone, but the size of the proposed zone would only be 10 x 40. A typical loading zone is 10 x 65. There was not a recommended suggestion for trash removal. This proposal was rejected by the commission because cars would be forced to relocate to provide access for the trash trucks. “Just because the design meets the code, does not mean it’s a perfect design,” Zoning Administrator Jennifer Keener said during the hearing. GCR did not request a second site plan review.

Water safety crucial steps to avoid tragedies

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) With summer being the season for most boaters and watercraft enthusiasts, local safety and rescue operations have been stressing preparedness and obeying the rules to prevent an idyllic day on the water from turning tragic. Coast Guard spokesman First Class Petty Officer Andy Kendrick said the essential point is being ready if Mother Nature presents unanticipated circumstances. “Being out on the water is a dan-

gerous environment,” he said. Before venturing offshore, boaters should check daily weather forecasts to assure stormfronts are not looming on the horizon, Kendrick said. “Weather can be a huge factor in safety on the water and it can change very rapidly,” he said. Kendrick said the Coast Guard coordinates with the Ocean City Beach Patrol to train rookie lifeguards for inlet rescues, as swimmers caught in a rip tides are sometimes swept into the inlet. Beach Patrol Sgt. Damien Sanzotti

said lifeguards also train using threeperson watercraft to pick up people involved in water-related accidents. “We deploy them a handful of times throughout the summer,” he said. In addition to confirming weather conditions, boaters and others on the water should share their itineraries with friends or family. “Let other people know what you’re going to do and when you’re going to be back,” Kendrick said. “That will help if you don’t come back when you’re supposed to.”

Odds of survival are significantly increased when rescue teams have some inkling regarding location. “The ocean is a vast area and it’s truly difficult to find people, especially if we don’t know where to look,” Kendrick said. Regardless of comfort levels in the water, people should wear life jackets when riding in boats or other vessels, Kendrick said. “When you’re underway, you can hit something … get ejected [or] knocked unconscious before you See WATERCRAFT Page 10

Film looks at surfing legend who battled addiction issue By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Spurring conversation about mental health and drug addiction battles usually fought in private is the premise of a documentary about departed surfing legend Andy Irons being shown locally next month. “Andy Irons: Kissed by God,” from filmmakers Teton Gravity Research, will be screened on Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Ocean City convention center Performing Arts Center on 40th Street. Tickets are currently on sale. Despite achieving fame and notoriety among wave aficionados, Irons, a three-time Association of Surfing Professionals World Champion. struggled with bipolar disorders and opioid addiction during his storied career. The film producers portrayed Irons, who died in 2010, as fighting “insurmountable internal challenges” while reaching the sports pinnacle to become the only surfer to win a title at every venue on the ASP calendar. The film presentation is being spearheaded by Reese Cropper III, senior vice president NFP Property & Casualty, who has disclosed similar psychological challenges previously hidden in the shadows. “Mental health disorders are not

something we want to divulge to others,” he said. “However, just as the word ‘cancer,’ was whispered many years ago, so are the words of depression and bipolar disorders.” Cropper learned of the Irons documentary, which had its world premiere in Los Angeles on May 2, from cohort Gordy Boone. “The … movie is a real-life example of how mental depression and bipolar disorders, combined with opioids, See IRONS Page 11

Watercraft safety tips offered Continued from Page 9 enter the water,” he said. “There are lots of things that can happen, and you don’t have a chance if you don’t have a lifejacket on.” In the event of emergencies while offshore, being able to call for help is critical. “The Coast Guard operates primarily on channel 16 on VHF radio,” he said. “Your phone isn’t really made for the marine environment. Though it can work, we would urge people to use VHF radio on the water.” Kendrick also said personal locator beacons (PLBs) can be purchased that can be worn or placed in vessels, with more advanced models incorporating texting technology to contact emergency officials. Ultimately, Kendrick said any type of sound-producing device, such as whistles and horns, could be a lifesaver. “There are a number of different things you can use that are low tech to get people’s attention to get help,” he said. “A whistle cost like 50 cents … they’re super cheap and can definitely help save your life.” Lifeguards, of course, use whistles to communicate at times, especially when personal watercraft venture near shore.

“If somebody was riding a Jet Ski, and they hear the lifeguard whistling at them and pointing out, chances are that means they’re too close to shore,” Sanzotti said. Following too closely to another Jet Ski is another safety concern, Kendrick said. “If I’m following directly behind you … and you whip the Jet Ski around to do a donut ... I’m going to T-bone you,” he said. “They’re loud and you probably don’t hear the one behind you.” Kendrick said another common misconception among novice users of personal watercraft involves the loss of steering when the craft is stationary. “If you’re just idling, you will not be able to turn,” he said. “You have to have throttle to make it turn.” Resisting the urge to travel at top speeds when conditions are less than favorable, especially as hurricane season ramps up, greatly reduce the odds of being thrown into the water, Kendrick said. “The surf is going to start picking up in August and September,” he said. “If you have a day where there are … big chops, you probably won’t be able to go full speed because you’re going to be bouncing all over the place.”

Lighthouse Business Center site plan given OK by county By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) A site plan review for construction of 12,000 square feet of contractor shops and 37,550 square feet of warehouse space was approved during a planning commission meeting in Snow Hill on Thursday, Aug. 2. Lighthouse Business Center in Bishopville presented its plan for a project involving eight acres of land on which nine buildings would be added in phases. “[The owner would] like to have the contractor shops. We’ve kept them small, so they can be reasonably priced so that they can be rented out to contractors along with the storage,” Contractor J.W. Salm said during the hearing. “We have flexibility and different size units.” The hearing involved seven waiver requests for otherwise required de-

signs for other commercial buildings, including gravel surface instead of pavement, not installing windows, sidewalks or benches and not having formal entrances. The company’s argument for these waivers stem from the property’s intended purpose: to store belongings. Consequently, its representatives contended, traditional commercial building requirements would not be needed. “This is an incredibly unique property that it backs up to the railroad track ... and wetlands,” Salm said. “People are going to store things here. We really don’t want people. We really don’t want walkability. We want to discourage people from walking around.” The planning commission gave unanimous approval for the waivers and the site plan review.

Worcester County looking to fill commission, board spots By Paige Mallory Passman Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) The Worcester County Commissioners have 14 vacancies to fill on its committees, commissions and boards. The following vacancies are Agricultural Reconciliation Board (1), Local Management Board/Initiative to Preserve Families Board (1), Local Development Council for Ocean Downs Casino (1), Lower Shore Workforce Investment Board (1), Property Tax Assessment Appeal Board, with (three nominees for each slot – nine total nominees – to Governor), Social Services Board (3), Solid Waste Advisory Committee (1), Tourism Advisory Committee (1), Water and Sewer Advisory Council –

West Ocean City (1), and Commission for Women (1). Current members will continue to serve beyond their terms, while they are either reappointed or a replacement is named. County public information officer Kim Moses said the length of time it takes to fill a vacancy is contingent upon interest. “Once an individual contacts a commissioner of the county directly, we present that person’s and his or her resume to the commissioners for their consideration in filling the vacancies,” Moses said. She said if there are more volunteers than vacancies, their resumes remain on file for consideration when filling future positions.

Irons documentary next month Continued from Page 10 can be a deadly result,” Cropper said. Recognizing a teaching moment in their presence, the pair were joined by Leighton and Rebecca Moore, along with Tammy Patrick with Atlantic General Hospital and Denise Billings with Peninsula Regional Medical Center to form a committee to have the film presented in Ocean City. The real-life trials faced by Irons resonated with Cropper, who also rose to professional prominence while contending with comparable demons. “I have been fortunate to build and achieve business success, but the struggle of dealing with depression

and suicidal tendencies, constantly ruins all the joy … from life’s achievements,” he said. Cropper, who was previously reticent to address mental health and addiction issues with family and friends, said fostering open dialogue is crucial. “This makes it hard to seek help,” he said. “We have to reach out and lend a hand to those who suffer.” Tickets can be purchased for $20 online through the convention center or Ticketmaster. Profits from the screening will be donated to PMRC’s Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit sponsored by Rebecca and Leighton Moore.

County officials welcome new library chapter

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) Just about a month after its July 10 soft opening, the new $6.25 million Berlin branch of the Worcester County Library on Harrison Avenue had its official grand opening ceremony Tuesday. With the threat of rain looming, a crowd of close to 100 people moved indoors to an upstairs lobby and gathered around a small podium. Speaking first, Worcester County Commissioner President Diana Purnell raved about the “gorgeous facility.” Purnell said she toured the library earlier that day and marveled at children enjoying a new section designed just for them. “They were having a great time. They were having a really good time!” she said. “This is a great investment in our county and in our Town of Berlin, and I thank you for that.” Working with officials from the library and local government helped make the building unique, Purnell said. “This is what we do when it comes to our community – we partner together

that we can have the best of the best, and that’s what we’ve done here today,” she said. Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said he and others were “awestruck by this wonderful facility.” “We certainly look forward to generations experiencing something that I think has set a new standard for informational technology in our county and in our region,” Williams said. Williams said the library provided a wealth of information, cutting-edge technology, public meeting space, and beauty inside and out. “As a lifetime resident of Berlin, I do not believe I’ve ever witnessed so much excitement about a public project as I have seen for this new library,” he said. “The anticipation and response is [evident] in every neighborhood within our town, but what I think is particularly rewarding is to have witnessed the genuine excitement the new library has generated among our young people.” He said that was obvious earlier this spring, when children in an afterschool program of the Kiwanis that met at Buckingham Elementary School carried

out “an extraordinary book drive.” Williams said the students put up posters throughout the school asking for children’s book donations. “The students had high ambitions and set a goal of collecting enough donated books, stacked one on top of another, to reach the ceiling of their classroom,” he said. “In just a few weeks, the books they collected would not only have literally broken through the classroom’s ceiling, but through the school’s roof. With the generous support of Buckingham students in every grade, they collected over 1,000 children’s books for our new county library in Berlin.” Ron Cascio, president of the library board of trustees, said the building was the newest and the finest in the Worcester County. “None of this could’ve happened without the funding, approval, partnerships and dedication of many entities and individuals,” Cascio said. He singled out the board of trustees, former Library Director Mark Thomas, current Director Jennifer Ranck and the county commissioners, in particular Jim Bunting who “presided as president dur-

ing most of the design and the construction process.” He also thanked the State of Maryland, Town of Berlin, the Humphreys Foundation, Worcester County Library Foundation, and private donors who supported the new library. “A special thanks to Berlin native Joe Moore, for shaking down his lifelong friends,” Cascio said. “You didn’t have to say ‘shakedown!’” Moore said, drawing the biggest laugh line of the ceremony. Cascio also credited Worcester County Chief Administrative Officer Harold Higgins, Assistant CAO Kelly Shannahan, Budget Officer Kathy Whited, Building Administrator Bill Bradshaw and Maintenance Super Intendant Ken Whited. “A special thanks to architect Jeff Schoellkopf,” Cascio said. “We can’t show enough appreciation for his involvement and dedication from the very start, for design and oversight of the best of his wonderful buildings that grace our area.” Additionally, contractor WhitingTurner “oversaw many talented subcon-

tractors and craftsman whose excellent work will show through for decades to come,” Cascio said. “I’d like to personally thank the many men and women, most of whose names we’ll never know, for the hours of pain, sweat and blood they gave to this fine building, its site work and landscaping,” he added. “It was our intention from the start to provide this wonderful community with not just a library building, but a learning center, and to keep the project close to the town center,” Cascio said. “We also wanted to attempt to influence the decision makers that there could be a better way to acquire this building and to deliver to the people of Worcester County, Berlin and its visitors the finest, most efficient, affordable, long-lasting building we could. “Only time will tell. It would be nice to hear from those, using it centuries from now, just how well we did,” he added. Also during the ceremony, State Sen. Jim Mathias, Delegate Mary Beth Carozza and Delegate Charles Otto presented a citation on behalf of the Maryland General Assembly. Ranck, in a separate interview Tuesday, said the success of the new library is already evidenced by the unusually high turnout during summer learning events. “The children’s programs are doing very well this summer,” she said. “People in general are very excited to come into the quiet space to read and study, and there’s just more room to spread out.” She said the staff is delighted with the new building, which is several times larger than the old library on Main Street. “We’re all very excited and we’re always coming up with new ways to use the new space to benefit the community,” Ranck said.

Parks director pitches new sporting events for county By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) The Worcester County Recreation and Parks Department has an ambitious list of potential sports projects for next year, including a Tough Mudder event and possibly a hot air balloon race farther in the future, as the department pushes toward sports marketing as a way of boosting the economy. After providing the county commissioners with information on projects that will involve seeking bids, Recreation and Parks Director Tom Perlozzo on Tuesday followed up with an update on special events that are either already scheduled or are being pursued. As for the bid portion of his presentation, the largest project is the replacement of the 20-year-old playground in Stockton, with a budget of $100,000. The installation of finger piers and other improvements at Public Landing is expected to cost in the $80,000 range. Perlozzo then introduced a list of new and pending sports events to take place throughout the county as early as next summer, or can be available in 2020 with approval from the county. “As you know, I have been actively recruiting events to Worcester County since being hired in March,” Perlozzo said in a memo for Tuesday’s session. “As the director, I wanted to be sure you knew the goals established to better inform and educate you to our progress and momentum moving forward.” According to Perlozzo, 97 millionplus hotel rooms were booked nationally for sports-related travel last year, and the youth sports industry is worth $15 billion. “I put together some goals associated with sports marketing to take advantage of our current recreation assets and parks in the county,” Perlozzo said.

“The new things out there which are quite exciting. [For example,] the Tough Mudder can bring into town 10,000-20,000 people, 15,000 participants and $6 million in economic benefits. We will meet and work with the various cities to pull this off.” The Tough Mudder is a new event expected to run next year June 1-2 in Deer Park near Berlin. Tough Mudder is an international series of grueling, muddy obstacle course races — think American Ninja in the mud — that garners national television network coverage. If the first event here works well, a five-year deal is also available, Perlozzo said. Another special event is the return of Harbor Day, held in West Ocean City. This West Ocean City dockside festival ran from 2008-12 and is being reinstated by the Recreations Department. A date has not been fully determined, however, it is anticipated to run in October of 2019. Other activities include a Fishers of Men Bass Fishing contest in Snow Hill and Pocomoke; a kayak and canoe fishing tournaments in Snow Hill, Pocomoke and in the Ocean City area, OC Tri Running, a biking competition split between a 100-mile, 60-mile and 25-mile option from Bishopville to Pocomoke, and softball tournaments. Perlozzo also listed some events that have yet to commit and would need county approval if they did. This list includes a Spikeball tournament, car cruisers, hot air balloons, roller derby, and more. Musical events are also being recommended for the rest of the county, taking note of the level of successes of concerts held in Ocean City. Concerts would be available in all major towns in the county. More information on this event will come in later weeks.

Planning commission accept appeal for zoning correction Bishopville property falsely listed as 2.66 acres given approval for redistricting

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) A zoning error was acknowledged during a planning commission hearing in Snow Hill on Thursday, Aug. 2. Ocean Towers Construction LLC, located in Bishopville, is a contractor business which appealed to the planning committee to rezone the property and amend an error in the acreage. The property is districted as an E-1 zone with 2.66 acres. According to the property owners, there is an error where

a section of the property was redistricted as a RP (Resource Protection) District, which is not including in the total area. The actual E-1 acreage is 2.22, which they appealed for a correction. The company received an E-1 zone in 1992, which was retained in the 2009 comprehensive rezoning. The company also wanted to redistrict the current E-1 section into an A-2 section while keeping the Resource Protection district untouched. The argument was it wanted to avoid light and noise pollution which could be contributed to the industrial park parallel to the company. The planning commission approved the amendment and proposed redistricting appeal.

Commission backs Gerardi’s ‘Berlin Gateway’ proposal Property on corner of Route 50 could have convenience store, hotel, car dealership

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) A proposed new gateway into Berlin took a crucial step forward Wednesday night, as the town planning commission voted 5-1 to recommend adding two parcels of land at the intersection of U.S. Route 50 and Old City Boulevard to growth area three of the Town of Berlin Comprehensive Plan. Property owner Ernie Gerardi hopes to develop the parcels, totaling 18.65 acres, into a convenience store, car dealership, retail shops, hotel and restaurant. Earlier attempts to also include a 36-unit apartment building were abandoned. Gerardi will now seek a comprehensive plan amendment from the Berlin Town Council, then request annexation into town, and finally return to the commission to ask for site plan approval. Attorney Joe Moore, representing Gerardi, argued the parcels’ size was small, amounting to a three-tenths of 1 percent increase in the growth area, but the benefit would be big in terms of jobs, provide about $80,000 each year in tax benefits, and offer a significant increase in visibility from Route 50. He said criticism that approval would create a “wave of annexations” was unfounded and disputed a notion previously stated by Councilman Zack Tyndall that the development could overwhelm Berlin’s water and sewer capacity. Moore said an estimate from Berlin

Public Works Director Jane Kreiter showed the entire proposal would require about 43 EDUs, or equivalent dwelling units measuring water consumption, and that 967 EDUs are available. “This will be another Ernest Gerardi project of which this town can be proud and, most importantly, will provide an easy method for the visitors coming to this area to find a way to our great town,” Moore said. Interest in the project was high, as evidenced by the unusually large crowd in the Town Hall council chambers, and public comments on the project were roughly two-to-one in favor. Even those against it widely praised what Gerardi has already done in redeveloping Berlin homes and commercial centers. Commission member Ron Cascio said the expansion would ultimately be a detriment to the town, despite Gerardi’s reputation. “I have nothing but praise for Mr. Gerardi and what he has done in town,” Cascio said. “But we don’t give permits, we don’t give approval based on character, promises and intent. We give approval – or not – based on a plan.” Commission member Pete Cosby was among those in favor, saying the project was a “no-brainer,” in part because it would empower the commission in the final site plan approval. Cascio voted “no” and another commission member, Barb Stack, abstained. Cosby, Chairman Chris Denny, John Barrett, Newt Chandler and Phyllis Purnell backed the recommended addition to the growth area.

County gets $10,000 to help police combat sex offenders Part of Gov’s Crime Control and Prevention; statewide funding nearly $700,000 (Aug. 10, 2018) The Governor’s Office of Crime Control And Prevention recently announced nearly $700,000 in awards to assist law enforcement agencies in their sex offender registration, compliance, and enforcement efforts. The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office was awarded $10,721 of that money. The funding, which will be distributed to each Maryland county and Baltimore City, will be used to ensure compliance with Maryland law by those required to register or re-register with the Maryland Sex Offender Registry. The funding is to be used specifically for offender registration, compliance checks, and monitoring. “Gov. Hogan has made it very clear

that we must have a criminal justice system that works to stop crime and to hold offenders accountable for their actions,” said V. Glenn Fueston, Jr., executive director of GOCCP. “We are committed to doing all that we can to keep our citizens safe.” Gov. Hogan has made protecting victims of crime and building a safer Maryland a priority. This past legislative session, the governor supported and signed the Repeat Sexual Predator Prevention Act, which will allow courts to admit evidence of a defendant’s prior history of sexual crimes or abuse during prosecution for subsequent sexual offenses. The governor also signed legislation to allow victims who become pregnant as a result of a sexual assault to end the parental rights of their attacker.

Showell Elem. to begin construction in Oct.

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) The Showell Elementary School replacement project will begin construction in October, as Worcester County Schools Superintendent Lou Taylor received approval for funding during the county commissioners’ meeting in Snow Hill on Tuesday. “We’re here this morning to review the bids for Showell Elementary School project and secure approval and the funding required to proceed with construction of our new school,” Taylor said told the commissioners. “I say ‘our new school’ because I think all of us in this room are very proud to call it our school.” The Showell Elementary School project began five years ago. A feasibility study, which identified major

instructional and building system deficiencies in the existing 40-year-old school, was completed in 2014. “The projected cost of that project at that time was estimated to be close to $60 million,” Taylor said. “In early 2016, we formed a conceptual planning committee to perform a detailed analysis of the proposed building and to identify all potential cost savings. “Through the hard work of the committee and the collaborative efforts between the commissioners and Board of Education, we identified nearly $5 million in savings, reducing the proposed building by nearly 7,000 square feet, relocating the new building in order to keep the existing portable classrooms in use during construction, eliminating over 200 feet of exterior walls and eliminating

39 exterior doors,” he continued. Twenty-nine companies bid for the 15 bid packages in the board of education meeting room on Wednesday, June 13. The construction manager, Oak Contracting LLC, reviewed the bids and conducted reviews from June 18 to July 11. “We believe that the bids we are presenting to you for your approval reflect the hard work from everyone, creativity and collaboration between the commissioners, the board of education and the design team over the past two years moving forward,” Taylor said. The following bidders were approved – Reynolds Excavating; Harkins Concrete; Diamond State Masonry; Crystal Steel Fabricators; KB Coldiron; Cole Roofing Company; Charles Brown Glass; Leonard Kraus

Co; Churchville Tile & Marble; Value Carpet One; Jamestown Painting; 11400; TJ Distributors; Joseph M. Zimmer and Nickle Electrical Companies. The 15 bid packages include sitework and building demolition, building concrete, masonry, structural steel, carpentry, roofing/metal wall planes, windows, drywall, ceramic tile, carpet, paint, food service equipment, gym equipment, mechanical and electrical. Total construction costs are estimated at $39,045,266. The maximum state allocation is $8,672,000. The overall cost for the replacement school is projected to be roughly $47.5 million. The county commissioners recommended approval for the bids and construction of the new school. Construction is expected to be completed by the beginning of September 2020.

St. George church employee charged with stealing funds

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Teresa M. Kolacz, 51, of Berlin, an employee of St. George Greek Orthodox Church, was arrested on July 17 on charges that she embezzled more than $100,000 from its treasury. On May 15, church officials with St. George, 8805 Coastal Teresa Kolacz Highway, contacted Ocean City Police after discovering at least $50,000 in misappropriated funds. Police reported in May that the suspect, later identified as Kolacz, was cooperating with an investigation to determine the exact dollar figure involved. The Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office subsequently determined that Kolacz had allegedly stolen over $100,000 dating back to June 2017. Kolacz now faces a dozen felony counts, including theft of $100,000 or more and 11 counts of forgery. On July 16, a warrant was issued for Kolacz, who turned herself in the following day to detectives at the Ocean City Public Safety Building. On July 20, Kolacz was released pending trial after posting $50,000 bond and has a jury trial scheduled on November 5 in Worcester County Circuit Court. St. George Greek Orthodox Church, which was founded in 1985, has a current congregation of approximately 250 members.

Police seeking suspects in fatal hit and run

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) Police had no new information as of Tuesday on the fatal hit and run last Friday night that claimed the life of 75-year-old Sharon Bonewell of Bourbonnais, Illinois. What is known is that two unidentified people fled the scene after the crash. According to the Maryland State Police, a three-vehicle collision occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Whaleyville Road, between Peerless Road and Murray Road. Police said a dark gray 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan traveling east crossed over the solid double yellow line in

Drunk driver found to have five prior convictions for DUI

By Greg Ellison Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) When Maryland State Troopers stopped Thomas Arthur Harris last Sunday evening for suspected drunk driving on Route 50 in West Ocean City, they discovered multiple blotches on his driving record: five prior DUI convictions. Harris, 59, of Trappe was charged with DUI and negligent driving near Samuel Bowen Boulevard at approximately 6:15 p.m. after state police were alerted about a possibly impaired driver heading east on Route 50 in a black Hyundai Santa Fe. Police were told in a 911 call that a driver was failing to stay in the lane and had almost sideswiped several vehicles. Police began following the vehicle in question and stopped the driver, later identified as Harris, after he allegedly tossed a lit cigarette out the window and hit the marked patrol car. According to the police report, when troopers approached the vehiSee STRING Page 22

the road and into the path of two passenger cars: a black 2017 Nissan Altima and white 2017 Kia Rio. The Grand Caravan struck the Altima on the front passenger side and “veered and struck the guardrail, overturned, and went off the shoulder of the roadway coming to rest on its roof,” police said. The Rio “only received superficial damage,” according to police. The driver of that car, 53-year-old Cynthia Roberts of Dover, Delaware and two juvenile passengers, were said to be uninjured. However, all four occupants of the Altima, all residents of Bourbonnais, Illinois, were injured during the crash. The driver, 44-year-old William Butler and one juvenile passenger, received minor injuries and were taken by ambulance to Penin-

sula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. Two other passengers, Bonewell and 43-year-old Carla Butler, received serious injuries and were taken to the Level III Emergency/Trauma Center at PRMC. Police said Bonewell was transported via medevac by the Maryland State Police Aviation Command, Trooper 4 and later succumbed to her injuries. According to police, witnesses near the collision saw an unidentified black male driver and white female passenger exit the overturned Grand Caravan and “run east from the crash scene.” “They were then observed getting into a blue passenger car which left the scene.

Ron Snyder, Maryland State Police public information officer, on Tuesday said there were no further updates and no additional information was available regarding the blue passenger car. Fire and EMS units from Showell, Berlin and Ocean Pines went to the scene and “extricated the trapped occupants of the passenger car, and provided emergency medical treatment and transport,” police said. The Maryland State Police Crash Unit assisted in the investigation, which is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the duty officer at the Maryland State Police Berlin Barrack, 410-641-3101.

POLICE/COURTS

Assault while driving Justin John Oliveri, 38, of Pittstown, Pennsylvania was arrested for second-degree assault after allegedly hitting his girlfriend while driving last Wednesday just before 1 a.m. Police said Oliveri, who was driving a Ford F-150, flagged down police in the 2000 block of Robin Drive and said his girlfriend had injured herself and needed assistance. Oliveri allegedly told police the pair had a heated argument after he smashed his girlfriends’ cell phone an hour earlier for texting other men. Police reported Oliveri claimed his girlfriend hit herself in the head while flailing her arms around the truck. When police interviewed the woman, they reported the entire left

side of her face was swollen, with a large bruise forming around her left eye and blood coming from her nose. According to the police report, the woman said Oliveri punched her in the face several times while driving on 32nd Street.

Throws cans at cops Trevor Paul Lafrance, 18, of Salisbury was arrested for two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, loud noise and littering after reportedly hurling beer cans at police in the 200 block of Baltimore Avenue just after 1:30 a.m. on Friday. Police on bicycle patrol reported hearing a large house party with approximately 40 people on a third-story deck.

String of past DUI convictions Continued from Page 19 cle, they saw four empty and three full cans of beer in the car, as well as a tumbler with beer in the center consol. Police said Harris claimed to have consumed two beers. Harris subsequently failed field sobriety tests and registered a .13 BAC according to police, who also discovered his string of past drunk driving

convictions. Between August 1989 and May 2000 Harris was charged five times with DUI and was also arrested on four occasions during that same period for driving on a suspended license. As of midweek, Harris was being held without bond and has an initial trial date on September 10 in Worcester District Court.

As police approached the residence, a man, later identified as Lafrance, allegedly hurled a full, but opened beer can at an officer’s head. Police said the partiers went inside but returned a short time later and that Lafrance threw another unopened beer at a policeman’s head.

Curb crash Kimberlee Denise Tussing, 49, of Middletown, Virginia was arrested for DUI, negligent driving and using a cell phone while operating a vehicle on Friday just after 9:15 p.m. Police pulled over a 2004 Acura TL in the 100 block of 99th Street after being altered to a possibly intoxicated driver in the area who had crashed into a curb. Police spotted the vehicle on Coastal Highway near 94th Street and reportedly saw the driver, later identified as Tussing, straddling two lanes and impeding the flow of traffic. On examining the car, police saw damage to the car rims and observed Tussing using a cell phone. When questioning Tussing, police said she responded with numerous incoherent and repetitive statements, before allegedly admitting to having one beer. Police said Tussing failed field sobriety tests and registered a .22 blood alcohol content during a breath test.

According to the police report, Brinkman, who was attempting to use a cell phone while peddling the bike, was having trouble keeping the bicycle balanced and was weaving within the lane. Police said Brinkman exhibited signs of intoxication and admitted to having a few drinks that evening. Brinkman allegedly consented to and failed field sobriety tests before a breathalyzer test registered a .25 blood alcohol content.

Artists to paint at spots in West OC and around resort

By Paige Mallory Passman Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Anyone who will be strolling along the Boardwalk or venturing into the area’s scenic spots this weekend may see painters huddling in front of easels, replicating what they see around them. These artists are participating in the 13th annual Paint Ocean City Plein Air event. The activities kicked off with a welcome party on Wednesday at the Ocean City Center for the Arts on 94th Street. Artists began painting on Thursday and will continue to do so until Saturday afternoon. “En plein air” is a French expression that means “in the open air,” and is used to describe the art of painting outdoors. “It started as a one-day event we’d have in Ocean City and now it’s a fiveday full-blown event where 50 artists from all over the country and local [area] come out and paint on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and half a day on Saturday,” Rina Thaler, executive director of the Ocean City Center for the Arts, said last week. “People travel great distances to participate in these competitions.” Baltimore Magazine listed “Artists Paint OC” in its “50 Reasons Why We Love Our Beach.” Artists will finish at 2 p.m. on Saturday and return to the Ocean City Center for the Arts with their completed works. All entries that will hang on display in the Galleria through the month of August will be juried at 3 p.m. and these works will be eligible for the competition prizes. Judging will take place from 4:30-5:30 p.m. First place will receive $1,000. Second place will earn $500, and third place wins $250. Three honorable mention ribbons will be presented. Ribbons will also be awarded in five categories: best use of light, best maritime, best nocturnal, artist’s choice, and best hospitality. “The hospitality [division] is sponsored by the Ocean City Hotel-MotelRestaurant Association,” Thaler said. “Artists have to paint a business in Ocean City – a store or a restaurant, some sort of iconic Ocean City business.” The artwork will be available for purchase during the Wet Paint Sale from 68 p.m. on Saturday. Artwork not purchased will be hung in the Galleria throughout August. The Quick Draw Contest will take place on Sunday on the Boardwalk on

South Division Street. Registration is available up until 8:30 a.m. that morning. There is a $15 fee to register for the contest. The contest is open to everyone, including those not participating in the plein air event. Artists participating in the Quick Draw will have two hours to paint from 9-11 a.m. The artwork will be judged at 11:30 a.m. by artist Kirk McBride. It will be available for sale until 1 p.m. on the Boardwalk then until 4 p.m. at the Ocean City Center for the Arts. “This year, we’re emphasizing the Wet Paint Sale, Saturday, Aug. 11, 6-8

p.m. and turning it into a big party,” Katie Brown, gallery manager for Ocean City Center for the Arts, said. “There will be a tent in front of the Arts Center with live music starting at 5 p.m. plus a bar with craft beer, really building up the anticipation for the unveiling of the artwork.” David Simpson will be participating in his seventh plein air event and said that it is a really well organized competition. “The Art League does a good job of just orchestrating the whole event from See QUICK Page 27

Charles launches #IAmNotAlone Movement, Aug. 2

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) Ocean City native and country music artist Jimmy Charles wants cancer survivors and those battling the disease to know they have love and support, which is why he has launched the #IAmNotAlone Challenge and nonprofit organization. “I think this can really take off,” Charles said. “It’s already saved one life, and what I’ve seen is already super amazing. I can see the moments it’s creating.” Traveling the country over the past four years, performing and as spokesman and ambassador for Zero – The End of Prostate Cancer national nonprofit, Charles has met many people. Speaking with cancer survivors, those currently in the fight, and their families, he has felt their struggles and prayed he could do more. While Charles was going through his mail a few months ago, he received an email from Jacey Lynn Smith, whose father, Mark, is battling Stage IV prostate cancer. She said her father had lost hope, that he was feeling depressed, didn’t want to continue some of his treatments and had given up. She also told Charles that seeing him perform live was on her dad’s Bucket List because his song, “Superman,” meant so much to him. Zero had asked Charles to write a song to raise awareness and encourage men to get prostate exams and the end product was “Superman.” See I Page 30

Quick Draw competition this Sunday, open to all artists Continued from Page 26 registration, marketing, just promoting, and the exhibit, and then a quick paint on Sunday down at the Boardwalk,” Simpson said. “It’s just a really wellrounded event. I’m also a local, and oil painting is my specialty. Oil painting and water color are pretty much the two premier mediums for plein air.” Painting outdoors presents a variety of challenges, but he enjoys battling the environment and the conditions constantly changing. “I’ve been trying to formulate a plan because this year is the first year I will actually be working during the event,” said Simpson. Simpson is teaching summer school for art in Somerset County and the Ocean City Center for the Arts. He said he will probably do a beach painting somewhere close to his house in West Ocean City. “The quality of painting across the board is going to be very professional because this is a well-intended event amongst artists who professionally paint,” Simpson said. Not only are area residents participating in the event, but artists from other parts of Maryland are as well. This will be Annapolis oil painter Andree Tullier’s second time participating in the plein air event. Tullier said that she is more comfortable this year because she had only visited Ocean City as a child before returning to town in 2017. “This year I feel more comfortable because I have a couple ideas where I’m trying to get to paint and I know my way around a little bit more,” Tullier said. She got different ideas from people and went down to Ocean City to scout some locations this year. Friends who knew the area gave her suggestions of where to paint. “I’m looking to paint early in the morning, hopefully down at the very start of Ocean City on First Street,” she

said. “I want to paint some architecture. I kind of like the older part of Ocean City, that’s what I did last year.” What Tullier likes most about the event is that she gets to explore an area that she isn’t familiar. She also looks for something that appeals to her to use as a subject for her artwork. “That’s really nice because every plein air event is different, so you have variety in your life’s painting,” Tullier said. Baltimore resident Crystal Moll is participating in the plein air event for the third time. “It’s good to be going back. It’s a really pleasant event, and it’s more of fun event,” Moll said. “Coming back I have a little more familiarity with the location.” In Moll’s opinion, plein air events range from kind of causal to extreme competitions. The Ocean City event is a nice, casual few days of painting at the beach, she said. “I’m not in Ocean City very often, so I don’t have locations scouted, but I’ll just get there and drive around until I find something that will work for me,” said Moll. Greensboro, North Carolina, watercolor artist Kurt Plinke is participating in the plein air event for the second time. “I really like being at the beach. I like all the subject matter,” Plinke said. “The competition is really fun.” The friendships he has made and the way that the competition is organized is why Plinke has come back for the second time. “I go all over the place to draw,” Plinke said. “I don’t have a specific spot, but I like painting at the beach.” Those interested in watching artists paint outside on location, visit the events Facebook page at Facebook.com/artistspaintoc.

Melissa Kelly and Grover longtime Dogtel customers

By Paige Mallory Passman Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) For Melissa Kelly, dropping off her Shepherd mix, Grover, at Dogtel-Hotel on the way to Ocean City has become a routine. Kelly has been taking Grover, now 17 years old, to Dogtel-Hotel since he was a puppy. During her trips to Ocean City from Brooklyn, Kelly drops Grover off and stays about a week and half in Ocean City. “My family comes here every year for vacation, so we have been coming since I was a small child and kept the tradition,” she said. “When I got a dog when I was in my early 20’s it was the same year that the DogtelHotel opened. “I happen to have a friend who worked at the newspaper down here. The very first article about them she wrote.” Kelly continued. “She told me about Dogtel-Hotel after she wrote about it. It was perfect because this way my dog is close by, happy, and taken care of. We could also take him out to the beach.” Kelly said Dogtel-Hotel is a very friendly place. “The same faces are here every year, and they take really great care

How the #IAmNotAlone Challenge Works: – Take the Challenge yourself or challenge a survivor. – Visit www.facebook.com/iamnotalonechallenge and go to the contracts album in photos, and find your color ribbon that represents your personal cancer battle. – Copy the file and print it out (suggested 8x12). – Plan a special moment to share with friends and family to sign the contract. It can be with just your caregiver, immediate family or you can have a big party. Enjoy your day or evening surrounding the signing. – At the time of signing, gather your support team around you, thank them for being there and read aloud the contract to everyone. Then, sign and have your caregiver sign. Video the signing and post it to the Facebook page. Then say, “I, (state your name), took the I Am Not

Alone Challenge. I made a donation of (X amount).” Then, challenge a group, person or persons to also take the challenge. Hashtag #ISigned #IAmNotAloneChallenge #IAmNotAlone. – Find a special place to hang or put your contract. Framing or laminating is encouraged, and have it to always know that you are never alone and always have love, hope and support surrounding. – Post your video on social media and tag the @IAmNotAlone pages. Also, tag the people you challenged. Be sure they are public about their battle before posting. – Help the people you challenged create a special moment of their own for their signing. – Stay connected with “I Am Not Alone” and look for upcoming events and challenge stories.

‘I think this can really take off,’ Charles says Continued from Page 26 Charles wanted to fulfill Smith’s wish, so he planned a trip in midMarch to Gouverneur, New York. But, he said he would make the trip on one condition – that Smith would sign a contract, promising that he would never give up. “I was blown away when my family told me that Jimmy was coming to my hometown,” Smith said. “I had listened to ‘Superman’ so many times and found so much comfort in the

song and its story. “I had become very tired of the battle. Since diagnosis of Stage IV prostate cancer in December of 2015, I’ve had surgery, 39 radiation treatments and I still am receiving ADT which is a form of chemo – this will continue for a total of three years,” he continued. “I thought I was hiding my depression pretty well but obviously my closest friends and family knew the difference. When I was first diagnosed, everyone was so support-

ive and I know that support continued with me, but over time, I started to feel like everyone else got to go back to their normal life and I was stuck dealing with cancer every day. Not their fault at all, it’s just the way things go.” Charles put on a private concert for Smith, his family and friends at a local restaurant to “rekindle the love, support and strength.” During the event, Charles presented Smith with a contract written on a piece of card-

board. Smith and Charles both signed it then read it over the microphone. It read, “I, Mark A. Smith, promise to never, ever give up the fight!” There was not a dry eye in the bar. “There was something special about what just happened,” Charles said. “I wanted to be able to do this for so many other ‘Marks’ out there.” “Having Jimmy come here was just amazing and it showed me that I still had all the support in the world, See CONTRACT Page 32

Contract ‘creates moments for survivors,’ Charles says Continued from Page 30 I had just failed to reach out when I needed to,” Smith said. “The cardboard contract was the icing on the cake. And every time I start to feel a little down – and I still have many of those days – I just look at it and realize that I am surrounded by the love and support of so many, as long as I do my part and let them know that I need a little extra support some days.” From that experience, the #IAmNotAlone Challenge was created. A new contract was designed off the original. It is available online, at www.facebook.com/iamnotalonechallenge, and there are contracts for each cancer. Challenge takers should choose the color ribbon that represents their personal battle and then print out the contract. The #IAmNotAlone contract reads, “On this _ day of _, 20 _ I _____ promise to, at all times believe that I am stronger than I imagine and loved more than I know: to reach out to my support system anytime I start to feel down and to not let cancer steal my spirit! I promise myself, my family and my friends to NEVER, EVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT.” There is a space for the cancer warrior and caregiver both to sign, and it is pre-signed by Charles. “It’s simple, but it creates moments for survivors. It brings feelings out and it opens communication lines,” he said. “It’s a special moment when they read it.” “This entire journey has been so very surreal…and the fact that this has now blossomed into #IAmNotAlone and the challenge is hard to even fathom,” Smith said. “Bottom line, if it weren’t for cancer, none of this would have happened and I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. God has a reason for everything, we may know what that reason is, but …” Cancer survivors and those battling the disease are encouraged to plan a special moment to share with friends and family to sign the contract. Charles would like people to video their signings and post them on social media, and to tag the @IAmNotAlone pages. To participate, include the hashtags #ISigned #IAmNotAloneChallenge #IAmNotAlone. Since the campaign was launched on Aug. 2 – Charles’ birthday – a number of videos and photos have been shared of people signing their contracts. “We want to spread a ton of love through the internet, create a moment and rekindle love, hope and strength,” Charles said. “You have to be mentally strong going through treatments. This will save lives.

[Smith] is an example how you can do a 180 on mental toughness. We’re trying to do this for as many people as we can.” Those who sign a contact are encouraged to get others to also take the challenge. Donations are also being accepted for the newly-launched #IAmNotAlone 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity organization. As of Tuesday, nearly $2,400 had been raised by 24 donors. To donate, visit www.fundly.com/iam-not-alone. The organization focuses on the patient first, so they “never feel or fight alone in their battle against cancer. To make sure they always feel the love and support that surrounds them, to never let cancer steal their spirit and to never ever give up the fight.” The plan is for #IAmNotAlone to partner with other cancer nonprofit organizations and assist in fundraising for advocacy, education, awareness and continued research to help eradicate cancer, as well as provide mentorship and a hotline for patients to talk with someone when they are in need, feeling scared or alone. Charles’ “#IAmNotAlone” song was recorded with Grammy Awardwinning producer Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell last month at Royal Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. When Mitchell heard the work tape, he liked the song and its message, so he invited Charles to the studio to record it. “I love the way the song sounds,” Charles said. “There’s been a stellar response from those who have heard it.” The plan is to do an official radio release in early September. He will film a video for the song in Nashville and wants to include a number of cancer survivors. “It’s a song for anyone who feels alone,” Charles said. “It’s an empowering song.” Charles has been in Ocean City all week, performing a few days at Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street during the White Marlin Open fishing tournament weigh-ins. He will be a Harpoon Hanna’s on Route 54 in Fenwick Island, today, Friday, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. On Saturday, Charles is scheduled to be at the Delaware International Speedway from 2:30-4:30 p.m. On Sunday, the singer/songwriter will perform at Hammerheads Dockside, in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, from 12:30-3:30 p.m. The Stephen Decatur High School alum will then head home to Nashville for a few days before taking a trip to Alaska, where he will perform. He will be in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Aug. 25 for the Zero Prostate Cancer run/walk - Lehigh Valley. He

will be busy in September, which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, visiting several cities performing at walks and runs. Charles appeared on Season 9 of “American Idol” and earned a Top 50 spot on “Nashville Star.” Earlier this year he was named “Outstanding Young Tennessean of the Year” for his work with Zero Cancer and the many contributions he has made to several other nonprofit organizations. He dedicated that award to cancer

survivors. Charles has opened for some of the biggest names in country music, such as Merle Haggard, Lady Antebellum, Montgomery Gentry and Kacey Musgraves.

JOSH DAVIS/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Artists, staff and fans of the Soundwave Music and Art’s Festival gather for a group photo near the main stage on Saturday. The inaugural event was held over three days last weekend at the Mid Atlantic Youth Sportsplex in Pittsville.

Soundwave Festival shows off MAYS center By Josh Davis Associate Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) Organizer Brad Hoffman said he was pleased with attendance during the inaugural Soundwave Music and Arts Festival, held over three days last weekend at the Mid Atlantic Youth and Sportsplex (MAYS) in Pittsville.

He estimated the festival of rock, blues and jazz acts including G-13, Blue Miracle, Joey Harkum and Blind Wind drew close to 1,000 people. Bands, altogether numbering nearly two-dozen, set up outside on a large stage and indoors in an air-conditioned venue that also featured arts

and crafts vendors. There were food and drink vendors, family friendly games, and several bounce houses for children set up throughout the sprawling 58-acre property. “Attendance, for a first-time event like this, I think is solid,” Hoffman said. “Usually in your first year you market and push real hard, and you

do the best you can to expose an event … We’re putting a lot of eyeballs on the festival this weekend and people are definitely talking about it.” Hoffman, CEO of Live Wire Media and a producer of several notable area events, said Soundwave was particularly close to his heart.

Continued from Page 35 “Twenty-five years ago, I created an event called Localpalooza that was a music event with local bands that really launched me into my production, marketing and media career,” he said. “Twenty-five years later, after doing Ocean City Jeep Week, working on the DEW Tour, the Susan G. Komen Race For Cure … now I’m feeling like I want to do something for the community that would bring all the musicians and the artists together out here in a beautiful complex. And I also wanted to build something a little different. I have an 11-year-old daughter and this is the exact kind of event I would like to bring her to. “This place is amazing,” Hoffman continued. “John Barrett, Jay Phillips and Mitch Parker who own it have been great hosts, and they really want to see the community come together over here.” Opened last year, MAYS has already hosted events like the HoganLax tournament in June and later this month will be home to Jeep Jam, an annual offshoot of Ocean City Jeep Week formerly held at Berlin Falls park. Hoffman said Soundwave had already been “locked in” for a second year in 2019. “We’ll probably do a spring version that can kind of tie into the whole Salisbury University crowd and then look at bringing a little more country music, because I think the country vibe feels good out here,” he said. “You only have one chance at a first impression and I think the first impression on this event in this complex has been amazing.” Barrett, a Berlin resident, also said he was pleased with the inaugural festival. “Brad and his crew have done a great job putting all the musicians together,” he said. “We’ve had some beautiful weather and we’ve had some sponsors come out, and they’re real excited about the growth and the

future of it. We’re just looking forward to that and we’re absolutely going to do it again.” Both Hoffman and Barrett said they were looking forward to bringing part of Ocean City Jeep Week, Aug. 23-26, to the MAYS complex. Construction on an obstacle course for Jeep Jam was well underway as of last weekend and Hoffman said a “Jeep Jam Jamboree” concert was planned for the event. “The people in Berlin were great to work with, but they’re moving in another direction [at Berlin Falls] and it was very important that we found a new location for Jeep Jam,” Hoffman said. “People like to drive down the beach and come to the Ocean City Convention Center to see the vendors and purchase products and services, but …half the reason people came to Ocean City Jeep Week was to then come out to four-wheel. “Right behind us now you can see they’re building an amazing obstacle course. Chris Cropper and his team over there at C.C. Customers are busy every day,” he continued. “They’re moving a lot of heavy rocks, telephone poles and big mounds of tires – exactly what these jeep people want to see. So, it’s going to be an all-new and fresh Jeep Jam course.” Although based in Wicomico County, Barrett believes the new complex could equally benefit those in neighboring Worcester County. “[Hoffman] has these great events like Jeep Week that have been going on for years in Ocean City and Worcester, and we’re just going to pull a little of that over to Wicomico,” he said. “I think the two counties should work together and just become a great mix of everything.” During the HoganLax tournament, for example, Barrett said 300 teams participated and filled up hotels, shops and restaurants in both counties. “It’s just a great mix,” he said. “It’s a great way to get people to Delmarva.”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Smoked salmon amuse bouche By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Have you ever seen a photograph of food that looks so good it almost jumps off the page? What about a photo that is so well composed that it looks like a work of art? Getting food to look amazing in a photo is not an easy task. Food styling is an intricate profession that entails numerous tasks. With that thought in mind, let us take a closer look at an occupation that is literally before our eyes. Food stylists are individuals who prepare, plate and present food. They arrange food items in a way that looks appealing through the lens of a camera. The trick is to turn a real-life dish into a two-dimensional image that catches one’s eye. According to an article, “What Does A Food Stylist Do,” the job of a food stylist has changed over the years as advancing technology has made food photography a digital art. In the old days of film, food would often sit for hours under hot lights while the photographer fiddled with f-

stops and depths of fields. These days, digital cameras make the process much easier but it’s still important for food stylists to understand the ins and outs of photography. Contrary to popular belief, food stylists do not have to have a culinary degree but they need a strong understanding of food and cooking techniques. For example, stylists need to know what are the differences between a poached egg, soft boiled egg, egg over light, etc. and how to prepare these dishes for a successful photo shoot. Without this knowledge, the photo shoot would not be nearly as successful. Creativity is another prerequisite if one wants to become a food stylist. They must not only focus on the dish itself, but also on the entire surroundings that affect the picture. Furthermore, food stylists must have a good eye in choosing what props will accentuate the food. In addition, they must be able to improvise when things do not exactly go as planned. Finally, food stylists must be a master of details; a simple change in the angle of an ingredient can make a substantial difference in the design of a photo shoot.

If you want to bring out the food stylist part of you, consider serving an amuse bouche. Amuse bouches are a complimentary little bite that chefs offer to diners at the start of their meal. The petite sampling showcases style and technique, and is a preview of what follows. Smoked salmon amuse bouche is a great way to impress guests and an economical way to serve pricy smoked salmon. This delectable delight consists of a layer of smoked salmon mousse topped with smoked salmon tartar. Salmon caviar is the final touch to this decadent bite. The smoked salmon amuse bouche is served in a Chinese soup spoon (optional). Smoked salmon amuse bouche is elegant and fun way to begin your celebrations. Remember, a chef is not only a cook but also an artist. Enjoy! * Twelve Chinese soup spoons can be purchased at Amazon for $14.97. * Harris Teeter sells smoked salmon Nova bits at $11.99 per pound. Remember, you will only need 8 ounces. Nova smoked salmon is well worth the extra money. * Harris Teeter also sells a 2-ounce jar of salmon caviar for approximately $20. The caviar is being used as a garnish so it will last you for some time.

Chamber music concerts featuring ensembles of varying sizes, as well as community engagement activities, will take place Aug. 14-19 in a variety of settings across Berlin and Snow Hill. Events include intimate salon concerts in private homes, public concerts, and a day of free educational activities and masterclasses for local young musicians. On Thursday, Aug. 16, at 11 a.m. there will be educational activities at Zenna Wellness in Berlin. On Friday, Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. there will be a concert at Buckingham Presbyterian Church in Berlin. On Sunday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. is a concert at All Hallows Episcopal Church in Snow Hill. This year’s roster of festival musicians includes renowned soloists and chamber musicians from the US, UK, and Germany: violinists Elena Celebrating 30 Y Yeears, From

Urioste and Bella Hristova, violist Vicki Powell, cellist Guy Johnston, clarinetist Anthony McGill, and pianist Tom Poster. This esteemed group includes Avery Fisher Career Grant winners, BBC Young Musicians of the Year, and BBC Next Generation Artists, who bring their considerable talents to the Eastern Shore from illustrious venues ranging from Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center to the Wigmore Hall and Royal Albert Hall. As described by Urioste, festival artistic director, Chamber Music by the Sea, sponsored by the Worcester County Education Foundation, is “a completely symbiotic festival, the musicians deriving as much joy from the gorgeous scenery and warmth of the local community as the audience does from the world class musicianship infusing Maryland’s Eastern Shore each summer.” Additional details, including ticket and artist information, can be found at www.chambermusicbythesea or www.wced.foundation.

MORGAN PILZ/OCEAN CITY TODAY

An adult Brooks Trimper, now the Trimper’s Rides operations manager, poses in front of the iconic sign just off the Boardwalk last week.

Trimper’s Rides to celebrate 125 yrs. with ribbon cutting

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Trimper’s Rides will celebrate its 125th anniversary with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and park-wide party on Friday, Aug. 17. Public officials and dignitaries such as Gov. Larry Hogan will make an appearance during the ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of the carousel in the indoor amusement building on the Boardwalk near the inlet, next Friday at noon. “We’re looking forward to the governor taking time out of his schedule to come,” Trimper’s Operations Manager Brooks Trimper, 38, said. “He honored us a few years ago when we were announced the oldest familyowned amusement park in the country and we’re pretty blessed he’s able to come again and honor us for our 125th anniversary.” After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the entire park will be opened to the public at 1 p.m., where surprise giveaways will take place throughout the day. “There will be random things throughout the day for random guests,” Trimper said. “It won’t be the third person in line, it will be random

guests presented with prizes and coupons. We want to make it special for people who come on [that] day to have a different experience than they do every other day.” Wristbands to enjoy the 36 rides and 18 games and attractions available at the park will be discounted to $18, compared to the original $26. Special merchandise commemorating the 125th anniversary will be available for purchase. Trimper has been working at his family’s amusement park since he was 12 years old. “I am just one of the family mem-

bers that run our park,” Trimper said. “There are many of us here from the fourth and fifth generation that are closely involved in keeping this park running. “Everyone always says, ‘Oh, you work at the amusement park, you live by the beach’, [but] it’s not like I’m on vacation every day,” he continued. “It’s still a job. I’m with my family every minute of every day, but it’s still a job, and just like any other business world there are disputes, but it’s family so it’s easier to get through it.” Of the 4,000-plus amusement See OLDEST Page 52

The carousel inside Trimper’s Rides on the Boardwalk was purchased in 1912 and is still a family favorite for hundreds of guests who visit Ocean City. The carousel has four chariots and 48 animals installed on the ride, 23 of which are horses.

Oldest family-run amusement park marks latest milestone Continued from Page 51 parks that have existed in the U.S., Trimper’s is one of only 13 to have reached the 125-year milestone. Only 10 of those are still in existence. Trimper’s is the oldest family-run amusement park in the country, and the second oldest in the world, according to National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA) historian Jim Futrell. The oldest familyrun amusement park in the world is Blackgang Chine, located in England, which opened in 1842. “We’re actually hoping [Futrell] can come, because he’s the one that brought it to our attention years ago,” Trimper said. “He’s written many books around the East Coast, and all around the country, he’s pretty much the go-to man about park history.” Trimper’s beginnings date back to 1891, when Daniel and Margaret Trimper migrated from Baltimore and purchased two of the first three hotels in Ocean City – the Eastern Shore and the Sea Bright. Now, the amusement park takes up two-andhalf city blocks. “I hope that there’s going to be [more] to our family tradition involved for another 100 years,” Trimper said. “I think it will have to evolve with time and change. We’ll have to modernize and change with the times. If you’re not changing you’re dying in business, so we want to modernize but still keep some ties to our traditions and our history. “In my lifetime it’s certainly grown because the Tidal Wave was the

largest addition, and then Marty’s Playland was purchased when I was very young,” he continued. “The [major] change in the industry is everything used to be mechanical and now everything is electronic.” In 1912, the Trimpers purchased the massive carousel, which still operates today inside the 700 South Atlantic Avenue location, from the Herschell-Spillman Company in New York. The hand-carved 104-year-old carousel is 50 feet in diameter and was initially run by a steam engine, which powered the first blocks of the city before electricity was universally utilized. Rides initially cost a nickel. “It’s definitely great to see how happy people are and the memories they’re making and repeating,” Trimper said. “I have people tell me all the time, ‘Well this was my favorite ride as a kid and now my daughter’s riding that ride, or my granddaughter’s riding that ride.’ It’s great to hear those stories and to know we’re part of their family tradition and they’re making memories with their children that they did with their parents [too].” The amusement park’s indoor entertainment on 700 South Atlantic Avenue is open from 1-11 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 12-11 p.m. Saturday through Sunday. The outdoor park between South First and Worcester street is open every day from 3-11 p.m. For more information about Trimper’s, visit https://trimpersrides.com.

REAL ESTATE REPORT

New mortgage programs for first-time buyers

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) There are many positives that surround an improving real estate market, but there is a downside – housing costs in many areas begin to exceed the financial reach of some low-tomoderate wage earners. This is especially felt here on the shore, where there are numerous service sector employees, such as restaurant and retail, and even entry-level positions in education, police and fire.

Marylandhomeownership.com, a part of the Maryland Realtors website, offers access to agents who have completed their Housing Opportunity Certification (formerly known as Workforce Housing Certification). These agents have taken enhanced education to prepare them to assist first-time homebuyers. According to a recent article in the Maryland Realtors magazine, the name

Social media contest during Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week (Aug. 10, 2018) Comptroller Peter Franchot joined with the Maryland Retailers Association to announce a social media contest coinciding with Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week in which two winners will receive $2,500 and $1,000 scholarships, respectively, to any Maryland university, college or trade school. Leading up to and during the annual Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week, which takes place Aug. 12-18, shoppers should like or follow the official social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Then snap a picture or take a video that incorporates the theme of “Maryland” (the state colors, school apparel, sports team, a crab, etc.), write a creative caption and use #shopmdtaxfree during Tax-Free Week to submit an entry on any or all of the social media platforms. MRA, which is providing the scholarships, will select the two entries at the week’s conclusion that best reflect the spirit of Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week. “The state of Maryland loses money See COMPTROLLER Page 54

“Workforce Housing” was coined to help avoid the unfortunate stigma attached to the term “affordable housing.” Housing Affordability and Equal Opportunity Committee found that the term workforce housing was still confusing for some and undertook the task of evaluating and improving the program. Now, through an expanded partnership with the State of Maryland, Housing Opportunity Certified (HOC) Realtors will have more exposure to consumers through the Maryland Mortgage Program website, and through our own consumer website at www.marylandhomeownership.com. The Housing Opportunity Certification is also geared toward making sure minorities and immigrants don’t fall victim to discrimination and predatory

lending practices. There are financial programs and tools that can help address the problem of affordability, and HOC Realtors are specially trained to help this specific buyer. Maryland homebuyers can utilize the Maryland Mortgage Program, which offers three types of 30-year, fixed-interest home loan programs available to eligible homebuyers. Grant assist and Loan assist programs offer upfront financial assistance for down payment and closing costs to help homebuyers meet home purchase requirements. Rate Assist programs provide low interest rate options that lower monthly repayments over the life of the loan. — Lauren Bunting is an Associate Broker with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Atlantic General again gets Stroke Center designation (Aug. 10, 2018) Atlantic General Hospital’s Stroke Center received an official designation from the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) as a Primary Stroke Center (PSC). This designation means Atlantic General has met the requirements put forth by the American Stroke Association (ASA), MIEMSS and the Joint Commission to optimize the quality of care to stroke patients. Stroke is a significant cause of death and long-term disability in the United States. According to the ASA, roughly 700,000 Americans have a new or recurrent stroke each year. It is the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer, and is the leading-cause of long-term disability in this country. These overwhelming statistics led to recommendations for the development of primary stroke centers to care for acute stroke patients. Treatment during the first three hours of stroke onset is critical to halt its effects on the body. Atlantic General Hospital has created a stroke team, composed of physicians and nursing staff specially trained in

stroke care, and integrated the stroke protocols in its emergency department with the hospital’s diagnostic and inpatient clinical services to further streamline treatment. They are also continuing efforts to educate the community. Too often, stroke victims ignore or are unaware of the significance of their symptoms and don’t seek the care they need. Atlantic General Hospital demonstrated significant improvements to the Stroke Center according to the MIEMSS follow-up PSC survey. These improvements assisted in the hospital’s Stroke Center re-designation. Atlantic General Hospital received its initial designation in 2008 and has been resurveyed every five years. “The designation of our hospital as an official stroke center emphasizes our commitment to our community’s well-being. Stroke is one the leading causes of death and disability in our country, and I am proud to say that our citizens and our many visitors can feel safe knowing that we adhere to the highest standards of care in stroke,” Dr. Preeti Yonker, medical director of the AGH Stroke Center, said.

Atlantic General Hospital continues to give the most timely and effective care for the treatment of stroke with the help of this designation,” Scott Rose, director of the AGH Stroke Center, said.

Comptroller calls Tax-Free Week ‘big win’ for local biz Continued from Page 53 during Tax-Free Week, but it’s a big win for locally-owned businesses and for shoppers,” Franchot said. “This will be the easiest scholarship Maryland college students will ever have the chance to win. There’s no application, no essay and no interview – just shop tax-free.” “Tax-Free Week provides a muchneeded boost to brick-and-mortar retailers in our state, and we encourage all consumers to support their local businesses,” said Cailey Locklair Tolle, MRA president. “This year we are again thrilled to help promote shopping local and Tax-Free Week by offering scholarships to our contest winners.” During Tax-Free Week, any single qualifying article of clothing or footwear priced $100 or less – regardless of how many items are purchased at the same time – will be exempt from the state’s six percent sales tax. The first $40 of any backpack or bookbag purchase is also tax-free. To get the latest details about TaxFree Week and to enter the contest, like or follow the social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Resulting from legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly in 2007, the tax-free week is held annually during the second week in August. For info, visit marylandtaxes.gov.

The party, sponsored by Atlantic General Hospital and Embrace Homes Loans, will take place at Ocean Pines Golf Club’s Tern Grille, located at 100 Clubhouse Drive, on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 4-7 p.m. “Our committee of dedicated volunteers has put together a wonderful, fun and relaxing event,” said Terri Mohr, 50th Anniversary Cocktail Party organizer. “We are looking forward to a few hours in a beautiful setting to connect with many of our neighbors in Ocean

Entertainment will also include an exclusive tasting event by Spirits of Patriots, a Somerset County-based craft distillery, and an Ocean Pines history trivia game hosted by Worcester County Tourism Director Lisa Challenger. “The event will be a neat mixture of infused entertainment and sweeping golf course views,” said Denise Sawyer, marketing and public relations director of the Ocean Pines Association. “I believe this year’s wave of excitement in Ocean Pines is mounting and residents and nonresidents should definitely experience every moment of it.” See TICKETS Page 56

My gorgeous Mommy, Joan Fonte, died peacefully on November 1, 2017 with the prettiest smile on her face. She fought her cancer like a true warrior. Even when she had to have a tumor removed from her brain, she came through the surgery like a true champ. Eventually, the cancer became too aggressive for her and she went home to Jesus.

We had a private burial at sea. My Mom was my best friend who I hung out with every single day. People around town would jokingly call us the "dynamic duo" because we were always together. And even after all this time, I miss her desperately. Everyplace I go in the Ocean City and Ocean Pines area, people tell me stories about my Mom. It touches my heart when people share their memories. It makes me smile thinking about how many lives she touched. I wanted to post this as a tribute to her. And I also wanted to thank everybody who called or sent cards and flowers. The outpouring of love from the community was overwhelming! Y Yo our prayers from the heart are the only thing which helped me through this year. Everybody who ever met my Mom loved her. God bless all of you! And God bless the spirit of my Mama!

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $23,500.00 in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not accompany each oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $23,500.00 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the

If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein.

Commentary

County rec dept. off to the races

You have to hand it to Worcester County Recreation and Parks Director Tom Perlozzo. He never has been and obviously is not now short on ideas. The list of special events he discussed with the county commissioners this week is more than impressive, it represents a dynamic change of direction for what had been a quiet program that operated in the shadow of other more aggressive departments such as Ocean City’s. That, of course, is where Perlozzo got his start in this county, as the resort’s chief parks and rec man, and he pulled off quite a few notable feats during that period, including Winterfest of Lights. But operating in Ocean City is much different than working in the county, in that the resort is more restrictive in both the physical and political sense. Space is limited in Ocean City, which means that rec programs and special events must fit in a substantially smaller area. They also must earn the approval of a voting population that’s dwarfed by the resort’s overall audience, a circumstance that can cause residents to wonder what’s in it for them. Worcester County, however, gives Perlozzo the opportunity to play on a bigger field, with room to take to the outfield now and then with what would have been considered preposterous propositions in Ocean City. A hot air balloon festival in Ocean City? Not a chance, but somewhere else in Worcester? Absolutely. Then there’s the Tough Mudder event scheduled for next year. That’s a big deal, with 14,000-15,000 participants (not to mention spectators) and national television coverage. And let’s not forget the multiple sports tournaments on the agenda now with great growth prospects for the future. It’s going to be fun watching all this unfold and seeing what this rejuvenated county rec department will come up with next. Perlozzo is probably already plotting a course for the next big thing. We can hardly wait.

Exploring unknowns

I’ve been pondering the universal questions recently, the most significant of which is how many universal questions are there anyway? I don’t think anyone knows, which would explain why we have been so slow in coming up with the answers. It’s not like we can say, “I’ll take universal mysteries for $500, Alex.” But it does seem to me that if we were meant to solve these cosmic riddles, someBy one or something would have Stewart jotted them down along with note that says, “Answer Dobson athese seven questions and win a trip to the unknown in this BRAND … NEW … CAR!” But no, we have to fumble through, which makes this whole business of contemplating the great mysteries of life rather pointless. I also don’t think we’ll end up floating around at the conclusion of our earthly cycle while waiting for someone to grade our findings in the endless quest to know everything. “Oh, I’m sorry. You missed universal question five. But thanks for playing and here are these lovely parting gifts.” “Parting gifts?” you reply. “If I’m getting lovely parting gifts, where exactly am I going from here?” “Well now, that would be question five, wouldn’t it?” The Rev. Billy Graham, who was perhaps the most notable evangelist of our time, offered his thoughts on that many years ago, when he declared that, yes, there were golf

courses in heaven. The Rev. Graham was a fine person and all that, but his answer left me with even more questions. For instance, if you were playing golf in heaven, you’d make every shot, every time and card an 18. Otherwise, you’d be playing at another, somewhat warmer, location. “Tough shot, Dan. Right into the eternal pit of fire. You’ll never get out of that one.” On the other hand, if you knew you were going to shoot an 18 every time you played, that would be boring as hell, which would suggest … That’s why I tend to stay away from the great unknowables — they’re just too complicated, whereas plain, old ordinary unknowables are much easier to deal with. Such as: • If government was completely transparent, wouldn’t that make it invisible? • If everything that goes up must come down, why does it sometimes happen in reverse when you eat your first oyster? • Why do people have no fear of standing on the median strip in the middle of the highway with a hundred cars roaring past them on both sides, when they would never even think of standing in a median strip situated between two expert marksmen shooting two tiny bullets in different directions? • Would it be politically incorrect to call someone walking down the street wearing a thong a “lunar rover?” • If there’s no such thing as global warming, what happened after the Ice Age? • And finally, if a vulture took a commercial flight, would it have to pay extra for carrion luggage?

Letters to the editor Pressure needs to be kept up against CAFO

Editor, Once again I would like to thank you for allowing my concern about the Concentrated Animal Feed Operation on Peerless Road in Showell to be shared in your paper on June 15, 2018. Also, a half page ad from the “Protectors of the St. Martin River” entitled, “Save Our River,” was placed right below my letter outlining those reasons why that the CAFO should not go forth. The written word carries such strength. So many of your readers have responded to “The Protectors of the St Martin River” with their support against the CAFO’s proposed location. However, we still need to keep this topic in the public’s eye. Here, again, are some reasons why we so strongly oppose the CAFO. Three 600-foot chicken houses on the Peerless Road location could produce more than 500,000 chickens per year. Ninety tons of manure could be produced! An estimated 12 tons of ammonia could be released. In addition to the already mentioned worries, is the fact that the Peerless Road location is close to important water areas. Pollution from storm water runoff could easily harm the Shingle Landing Prong and the St Martin River. The St. Martin River is an impaired waterway from a previous factory poultry center years ago that has since been closed. We need actions to improve quality, and not actions that potentially cause harm. Our waterways are so important for many. All enjoy the beauty. Some use the water for recreation like boating, skiing, crabbing, fishing and more. Watching the wildlife like herons,

egrets, geese, ducks, turtles, and so many others bring such excitement to young and old alike. Those sunrises and sunsets, and the beautiful sights along the river make for unforgettable memories. Perhaps, these precious qualities of this area are why so many love living here and are willing to help in sustaining what we have. So, we still plan to fight the good fight to remove the concentrated animal feeding operation off the Peerless Road location. Again, I thank this paper for allowing us to inform so many about this issue. We all want to do right by this priceless environment in which we live. Anita Welsch Bishopville

Annual OC Beach Patrol competition successful

Editor, Last week the Ocean City Beach Patrol held its annual crew competitions and despite the unfavorable weather forecast, we were able to complete all the events safely and had lots of fun. Even the crowd of spectators was undeterred by the weather! We want to thank everyone for their continued support of the Surf Rescue Technicians (SRT) for the work they do each and every day. We also want to express our appreciation to the many local business who sponsored the 18 crews we deploy along Ocean City’s beautiful beaches. Headlining those sponsors are Chic Fil A, the Ocean City Baptist Church, and Quiet Storm. These business provided every SRT with food, drink and a commemorative T-shirt, respectively. Additionally, we had over 75 local

business and individuals sponsor one or more of our 18 crews. Crew Comps give purpose and reason for our crews who work together in a professional capacity all day long to compete as a team. A lot of the skills require athletics so it encourages our SRTs to work on perfecting the skills they use every day in doing the job. Our Crew Comps are a special evening for our employees – competitive in nature - but a lot of fun for everyone and we very much appreciate all who support us. Thank you Ocean City! First Lt.

Trump popular with vets, ‘Americans in General’

Editor, Well, when all you got going for you is hate you sure do say dopey (and untrue) things, such as writing that the president’s speech at the VFW convention was “despicable” (letter to the editor, Aug. 3 edition OC Today). The writer treats us to the text of his resignation letter (from a VFW in Orlando Florida), and in said resignation letter he states that “Donald Trump’s speech . . . was an insult to Americans in general and in particular the VFW membership as a whole.” Hey buddy, the response of the vet-

erans at the convention and “as a whole” was overwhelmingly and enthusiastically positive . . . veterans love Trump, especially after the eight years of the mismanagement of the Veterans Administration under Obama. Veterans were dying in VA hospitals solely because of that mismanagement, and that outraged Trump, who — unlike Obama — loves, respects, and appreciates veterans. And as far as “outraged Americans in general”, you gotta be joking . . . us “Americans in general” won, he was elected by “Americans in general,” not by Americans who dislike this country, not by Americans who have their hand out looking for taxpayer money. Not only do “Americans in general” prefer Trump, Trump won the majority of Maryland counties 17 to 7, only the high density DC suburbs and urban centers voted for the democrat. So Mr. Smith, we thank you for your service, but where do you get the audacity to imagine yourself as speaking the “VFW membership as a whole,” or “Americans in general.” If you want to hate, that’s your business, but don’t claim to be speaking for anyone other than close minded, uninformed haters. Veteran care has never been better, and our military is being restored to a level of strength that it hasn’t been at since Ronald Reagan. So just what kind of veteran are you, calling the president

Free speech, even at the beach, goes both ways

Editor, I have been coming to Ocean City for 40 years. The letter “Leave politics out of local economy” sickens me. The author implies that some people are offended by others showing support for the president of the United States of America. As a result, so the argument goes, it is more important to silence free speech and shackle a constitutional right. Bluntly put, there is not a shred of evidence that people will shy away from OC if support for the president of the United States is displayed. Any such suggestion is simply Fake News.

If people were truly offended by a showing of support for the president, I suggest they simply exercise their option to go to a country where free speech is not tolerated. The suggestion that showing support for the president is a bad thing and disrupts the local economy is nothing short of a demented left wing attempt at fiction and a blatant attempt to stifle free speech. I encourage all citizens to exercise their free speech as they see fit and not allow themselves to be intimidated by the pious slop of the left. I remind the author of the article that free speech is seldom a passive, quite exercise. Far more often it is loud, argumentative, and at times raucous. Our founding fathers intended this result. Greed for more profitability does not, and cannot, trump free speech. James Majernik Ocean City Continued on Page 70

Beach obstacle course earns OK Continued from Page 1 “The producers would be responsible for the creation, maintenance and securing of this beach obstacle course,” she said. The closed course would also require participating Jeeps to be inspected for oil leaks, Mitchell said, with no town support required for build up or tear down. “City staff will be in contact to monitor it, since it’s a new event, and make necessary modifications if needed,” she said. “This is standard with any new event the town allows.” Councilman Dennis Dare, after seconding a motion from Councilwoman Mary Knight to approve the request, questioned the aftermath. “What about returning the beach to its pre-existing condition?” he said. Brian Shane, with Live Wire Media, who is assisting event founder Brad Hoffman with this years’ logistics, confirmed the sand would be left pristine. Dare asked why the request was being submitted just two weeks before the event. Mitchell said Hoffman proposed adding a beach course earlier this summer to the Recreation and Parks Department. “We’ve been working with the other departments to fine-tune it where it would be most beneficial for both the participants and the town,” she said. Dare then asked if the larger event had already been approved, which traditionally includes a Jeep parade along the beach from 29th Street to the inlet lot. “So, really the only thing we’re reviewing tonight is the obstacle course,” he said. Council president Lloyd Martin noted the approval request would also increase the number of Jeeps in the parade from 250 to 300. Dare reiterated his earlier concern about minimal approval timeframes.

“If there’s an issue … there’s no time to fix it,” he said. “It needs to be submitted earlier.” Shane said a meeting with city staff was held at the convention center on July 27, at which time department heads were able to review the proposal and pose questions. “It is kind of a last-minute thing … but working with all the professionals who know these events, they all felt comfortable that the plan was going to work,” he said. Shane also said Live Wire Media would be responsible for all aspects of the obstacle course. “Everything from clearing the beach in the event of lightning, to people who have drips coming out of their car,” he said. “They’re going to have serious safety barriers ... to make sure pedestrians are going to be completely clear of this event.” Shane added that the beach course area would reopen for public use after the second round of competitions are completed each day. The plans state Jeeps would be operated between 5-10 mph on the obstacle course, which would be enclosed by water barriers capable of stopping vehicles traveling 55 mph. The course will measure 125-feet wide by 320-feet long and be a minimum of 35-feet off the Boardwalk, with spotters and monitors on hand. “It’s a simple course … about half a block wide ... and sort of a zigzag,” he said. “Nothing big or ugly … this is kind of a kiddie course for the Jeeps.” Shane said the course site plan had been approved by the Recreation and Parks department. Dare also asked about Jeeps parking at the inlet lot in light of the city’s new pay-by-plate system. Participants would be given a special parking code valid only for the duration of that day’s event, Mitchell said.

“Since some vehicles in the parade start [on the beach] and exit the inlet lot, we’re looking to see what happens if you’re not photographed coming in, but [are] coming out,” she said. Mitchell also confirmed that city staff would be on hand to ensure that the course’s construction meets city standards. Councilman Tony Deluca asked if the council had already approved the OC Jeep Week beach parade for this year. “I don’t remember an application prior to this one that came to the town,” Mitchell said. “When it comes to the parade, and now this additional event, they always come before council for approval.” Council Matt James asked if voting “no” for the request would effectively end Jeep Week this year. Mitchell said that would only hold true for events being held on city property. “The event comes annually, and it takes place at different locations in Worcester County,” she said. “The other events in Worcester County taking place on private property would happen.” Councilman Wayne Hartman said the late request was initially confusing and later concerning. “I thought this was approved and was just being tweaked when I read it,” he said. “You guys have sold tickets and passes. Isn’t this taking a lot for granted if this is just coming to us?” Mitchell said the obstacle course was suggested after the application was initially submitted in June, and the delay in presenting was an attempt to streamline affairs. “Instead of bringing it to council twice, we tried to put it all together to present at once,” she said. When Mitchell was asked by Martin if any department heads had questions following the July 27 meeting, she said they did not.

Lower Shore Land Trust announces nat’l accreditation

(Aug. 10, 2018) Snow Hill nonprofit the Lower Shore Land Trust announced it has achieved national recognition, joining a network of more than 400 accredited land trusts across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in their work. “Accreditation demonstrates LSLT’s commitment to permanent land conservation in Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” Hugh Cropper, chairman of the Board of Directors, said. “We are a stronger organization for having gone through the rigorous accreditation process. Our strength means special places – such as Naylor Mill Park – will be protected forever, making Salisbury, Maryland an even greater place for us and our children.” LSLT provided extensive documentation and was subject to a comprehensive third-party evaluation prior to achieving this distinction. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission awarded accreditation, signifying its confidence that LSLT’s lands will be protected forever.

Keep Ocean City a fishing town, not an oil town

Editor, The White Marlin Open is a hallmark event in Ocean City. Last year, the tournament brought in more than 350 boats and 3,000 contestants – the comradery and excitement were palpable. The excitement this year is similar to last, but something has changed. We’ve all heard about the plans to open the Atlantic to drilling. For the first time, fishermen are facing the prospect of our fisheries being pummeled by explosive noise, and our waters tainted by oil. Could this be our last tournament before oil and gas exploration in the Atlantic changes fishing and the town of Ocean City forever?  The Atlantic Coast Sportfishing Association hopes not. Blasting the ocean with seismic airguns is the first step to offshore drilling. Huge arrays of airguns send deafening blasts toward the ocean floor in the search for oil and gas. The blasts go off every few seconds, for weeks or months at a time. The government has estimated significant harm to exposed marine mammals. Of particular concern are impacts to species like the North Atlantic right whale and other marine life. As fishermen, we are not only worried about what these blasts would do to keystone species like whales, but also fish like marlin, tuna and mahi. The Ocean City economy relies on a healthy and

AUGUST 10, 2018 abundant ocean. Observations following seismic exploration have revealed decreases in catch rates of cod and haddock by as much as 60 percent. One study found that within an hour of seismic blasts, there was a 60 percent drop in zooplankton abundance nearly threequarters of a mile from the blast site. Zooplankton form the base of the ocean food chain and a disruption to these tiny organisms could spell disaster for the many creatures that depend on them.  And once the drilling rigs show up, the threats only increase. We saw what happened to marine life following the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion. We saw tar balls on beaches, fish die-offs and oil covered birds. Imagine the nightmare that would be for Ocean City.  Offshore oil can’t mean anything but trouble for our cherished white marlin. Seismic blasting and oil spills could disrupt their food sources.   When President Franklin Roosevelt called Ocean City the “White Marlin Capital of the World” after a 1939 fishing trip, we doubt he ever imagined that the bountiful waters would one day be threatened by seismic blasts, tar balls and oil slicks. The marine ecosystems that support our coastal way of life are too precious to be threatened for very little oil. People all along the Atlantic have voiced opposition to offshore oil drilling and exploration. Those of us on the coast have the most to lose and our concerns should be considered before those of oil lobbyists. The government should listen to us and remove the Atlantic from the offshore drilling plan. Ron Smith President of the Atlantic Coast Sportfishing Association, formerly known as the Atlantic Coast Chapter of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association

WORLD WAR II

Remembering the Siege of Madrid By Peter Ayers Wimbrow III Contributing Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) This week, 80 years ago, Madrid, the historic capital of Spain, was in its second year of siege. On Sept. 22, 1936, with his army 25 miles from an almost undefended Madrid, Gen. Francisco Franco gave the Spanish capital an unintended 2.5 year reprieve. At the time, Col. José Moscardó Ituarte, commanding a ragtag garrison of 1,700, occupied the Alcázar in the center of Toledo, defying a Republican force numbering in excess of 7,000. The Alcázar was an ancient Moorish fortress, which had become Spain’s “West Point,” and from which both Moscardó and Franco had been graduated. It was destined to become Spain’s Civil War “Alamo.” The Alcázar had been under siege since the uprising in July. Now, Gen. Franco had to decide whether to take his army 24 miles to the southeast to relieve the siege, or 25 miles to the northeast to capture the lightly defended capital. Deciding to rescue the Alcázar, Franco reasoned that, “A week’s delay for the march on Madrid won’t produce the consequences you foresee. Even if it did, I

wouldn’t give up the chance to take Toledo and free the heroic defenders of the Alcázar. Spiritual factors weigh heavily in all wars, especially in civil wars.” The additional time allowed the Republican government, and the Madrileños, to move troops to the city and to prepare a defense. Inspired — and shamed — by the speeches and actions of Dolores Ibárruri — La Pasionaria — the Madrileños began building barricades. Dolores was a Communist member of the Cortes (the Spanish Parliament) from the province of Viscaya (Basque country). Addressing the Madrileños by radio, she told them that, “It is better to die on your feet, then to live on your knees!” Addressing a group of women supporters of the Republic, La Pasionaria told them that, “It is better to be the widows of heroes, than the wives of cowards!” And always, to whomever she spoke, she cried, “¡No pasarán!” — “They shall not pass!” “¡No pasarán!” became the rallying cry for the defenders of Madrid. And “they” didn’t pass for almost three years. After the Republican defeat, La Pasionaria emigrated to the Soviet

Union, where her only son, Reuben, died fighting with the Red Army at Stalingrad. After Franco’s death, she returned to her homeland in 1977, and was welDolores Ibárruri comed by crowds chanting, “¡Sí, sí, sí, La Pasionaria Dolores está aquí!” She was again elected to the Cortes and twice elected president of the Communist Party of Spain (Partido Communista de España). On Oct. 29, 1936, Capt. Paul Arman of Lithuania led a group of Soviet T-26 tanks in a counterattack against Franco’s Nationalists at the village of Seseña, near Toledo. Before setting out, Arman said, “This situation is not so hopeless. They have 15,000 soldiers, we have 15 tanks, so the strengths are equal!” During Arman’s counterattack, his force encountered the first “Molotov Cocktail,” although it wouldn’t earn that name until the Winter War between Finland and the U.S.S.R. These were bottles filled with a flammable liquid stopped with a rag, lit on fire and thrown against the target. Continued on 74

WORLD WAR II Continued from Page 72 Arman’s counterattack — more accurately a raid — had succeeded in raising Republican morale, but it had not stopped the Nationalist’s advance on the Spanish capital. Fearing that the city could not be held, the Republican government, on Nov. 6, 1936, “relocated” to the Mediterranean port of Valencia. The government was not alone. The world’s press predicted the city’s imminent fall. The next day, the defenders caught a break, when they recovered the Nationalist plans for the coming attack. They were able to shift their forces to defend the Nationalists’ objective — El Parque de Casa de Campo. The next day, Nationalist Gen. Emilio Mola Vidal launched an attack there with 20,000 soldiers, supported by Italian and German light tanks. They were faced by 30,000 ill-equipped and mostly untrained— but inspired

Ocean City Today — men. At this point, most of the defenders of the Republic were workers who had armed themselves. Gen. Mola boasted that a column of Nationalist troops was converging on the capital from each of the four points of the compass, and a “Fifth Column” of Nationalist sympathizers was prepared to rise and strike from within. But, every time it seemed that the Nationalists were about to achieve a breakthrough, La Pasionaria would appear, shout the phrase which she made famous — “¡No Pasarán!” — and rally the defenders. The first battlefield blood transfusions were performed on Republican wounded in the fight for Madrid in November 1936 by world-renowned Canadian Communist surgeon, Dr. Norman Bethune. Dr. Bethune’s techniques paved the way for the famed MASH units. In 1938, he traveled to China to lend his assistance to

the Communist Chinese in their fight against the Japanese. He is the only Westerner to whom statues have been erected in China. Late on Nov. 8, the first International Brigade, the XI (“Hans Beimler”), arrived to assist in the defense of the Spanish capital. It’s 1,900 men were commanded by a Hungarian officer in the Red Army, who had served as a captain in the Imperial and Royal Army of the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the Great War. He adopted his nom de guerre from Jean-Baptist Kléber, a famous general of the French Revolution. The XIth Brigade consisted of the following battalions: German Edgar André, commanded by Hans Kahle and named for a leader of the German Communist Party who was beheaded on Hitler’s orders on Nov. 4, 1936; French/Belgian Commune de Paris, commanded by Jules Dumont; Polish

AUGUST 10, 2018 Jaroslaw Dąbrowski, commanded by Stanisław Ulanowski. The Brigade adopted the name “Hans Beimler” to honor Beimler, a leader of the German Communist Party, and brigade commissar. He would die during the siege, on Dec. 1, 1936. The brigade’s arrival proved to be a real boost to the morale of the Spaniards defending their capital. Knowing that the Soviet Union was sending aid, and knowing that these soldiers were foreign, the Madrileños shouted, “¡Vivan los Rusos!” as the brigade marched through the Spanish capital. The brigade fought so well in the defense of Madrid, and garnered so much publicity, that Kléber/Stern was labeled by his adopted government “an adventurer,” recalled, and “dispatched!” Two days after the arrival of the International Brigade, the Anarchist Brigade of 4,000 men, under the command of Anarchist leader Buenaventura Durruti, arrived from Cataluña to assist in Madrid’s defense. As he was rallying his troops for a renewed counterattack on the Clinical Hospital in the University City neighborhood, on Nov. 19, 1936, Durruti was mortally wounded. The source of the bullet is still disputed — Nationalist enemy or Communist “ally.” By this time, his unit’s effectives were less than 400. Durruti’s body was returned to the Catalonian capital of Barcelona, where it lay in state while tens of thousands passed by. In all, 500,000 attended his funeral. The Anarchists’ place was taken by the newly formed XIIth International Brigade, commanded by Hungarian novelist Mátá Zalka Kemeny, who had taken the nom de guerre Pavol (“Paul”) Lukács. The XIIth consisted of the following battalions: German Ernst Thälmann, commanded by German author Ludwig Renn, and named for the leader of the German Communist Party who would spend 11 years in concentration camps — mostly in Buchenwald — before being executed in 1944; the French/Belgian André Marty, named for the paranoid, inContinued on 76

After trading blows with the Republicans, Franco concluded that the capture of the city, if possible, by frontal assault would destroy his army, so the two sides dug in. He ordered the bombing of the city’s residential areas, with the exception of the upper class Salamanca District. This was the first time that civilians had been the target of aerial bomb-

Their first attempt was foiled at the Battle of Corunna Road, which began on Dec. 13, 1936 and ended on January 15, 1937. The young poet, John Conford, greatgrandson of Charles Darwin, was killed in this battle, fighting with the British Battalion. Conford’s best known works are, “The Last Mile to Huesca,” and “Poems From Spain.” He was 21.

February. Irish Poet, Charles Donnelly, serving with the American Abraham Lincoln Battalion, was one of the many casualties of that battle. The following month, an effort was made at Guadalajara with an equal lack of success. Finally, the two sides settled into a siege routine — for another two years. By late winter, 1939, Segismundo Casado López had risen to command the troops defending Madrid. By then, it was clear to everyone that the Republican cause was lost. He, together with Gen. José Miaja Menant, joined with the leaders of the Partido Socialista Obrero Español (Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party), to form Junta de Defensa Nacional to govern the city and to negotiate its surren-

der. The leader of the Republican government, Juan Negrin y López, as he was fleeing to France, ordered Luis Barceló Jover to attempt to retake the city from the junta with his I Corps. The attempt failed and Barceló was executed. By the end of March, no one wanted to fight, and after more than two years, the Nationalist Army walked into the city.

The Berlin Little League All Stars this week went 2-1 during a regional tournament in Bristol, Connecticut. If the team continues to do well, it could advance to the Little League World Series finals in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Aug. 16-26.

Berlin All Stars 2-1 in regional play Bristol, CT tournament last stop before Little League World Series starts Aug. 16

By Josh Davis Associate Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) The Berlin Little League All Stars stayed alive on Tuesday, slugging out an 18-7 win over Mamie Johnson Little League of Washington, D.C. in the 12-year-old division of the Little League Mid-Atlantic Tournament in Bristol, Connecticut. The tournament is the last stop before heading to the 2018 Little League World Series finals in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Berlin advanced to the tournament after winning the Maryland state championship game 6-0 over Chesapeake City Little League, July 28 in Hagerstown. Playing in Bristol, Berlin is now 2-1 in the double-elimination tournament. The team shut out Milton, Delaware on Sunday, 6-0, then fell to the Middleton, New Jersey Little League team 6-2 on Monday. Playing on Tuesday morning against the Washington, D.C. squad,

Berlin jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a two-run homer by Owen Knerr. D.C. scored five times in the bottom of the inning, but Berlin reclaimed the lead for good in the third, pulling ahead 8-5. The Berlin All-Stars added two more in the top of the fourth, three in the fifth and five in the sixth inning to finish with the 18-7 win. Foster Smith, coming on in relief during the first inning, pitched four frames and allowed two runs on five hits, striking out three and earning the win. “We settled down after that first inning and giving up a bunch of runs,” Coach Cameron McDonough said. “We struggled out of the gate, but Foster Smith did a fantastic job coming in and steadying the ship. “He got us back to where we could get out of trouble and get back in and keep hitting – and we definitely did that today,” he added. Over three games, Knerr leads the team with four homeruns and eight RBI. Lukas Loring and Stephen Wade have three RBI each, and Alex Navarro and Adam Gardner have driven in two runs each. Navarro, batting .500, leads the

team in average. Also driving in runs during the first three games were Case Tilghman, Kannon Cropper, Nate Berzonski and Smith. Riley Calloway leads the team with five steals. On the mound, Wade leads the Berlin All-Stars in strikeouts with 11, and has yet to allow an earned run over 4 2/3 innings. Wade and Smith have each earned wins. Knerr is 0-1, but leads the team in innings pitched at five, and is second in strikeouts, also five. Berlin was scheduled to play again Thursday against Pennsylvania, after press time. A win would lead to another game Friday at 7 p.m. The championship game is Saturday, Aug. 11, also at 7 p.m. McDonough, during a fundraiser for the team in Berlin last Friday, predicted success in the tournament. “This is a really good group,” he said. “We’re really excited and I think we’re going to do well up there.” McDonough was also on the coaching staff in 2014 when the 13-year-old intermediate all-stars finished second in the U.S. in the Little League World See LITTLE Page 79

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) After three days of weigh-ins of the 45th annual White Marlin Open, as of the close of the Harbour Island Marina scale Wednesday night, only one qualifying white marlin was on leaderboard. Bill Haugland landed a 75-pound white marlin while fishing on the Lights Out (Ocean Reef, Florida) on Tuesday. With no other qualifying white marlins boated, the fish was estimated to be worth $2.6 million. Although it’s a decent size, Jim Motsko, co-director and founder of the White Marlin Open, thinks it could be topped with so many crews fishing Thursday and Friday. “The odds are it’s going to be beat,” he said. “I think we could have one or more weigh more than that.” As of Wednesday night, only one qualifying blue marlin had been weighed. Joe Rahman hooked an 881-pound blue marlin aboard the Auspicious (Palm Beach, Florida) on Monday. The estimated payout for the fish is $700,000. “I can’t see anyone beating that now,” Motsko said. “The odds are slim.” While teams are searching for big white and blue marlins, conservation of the species was also stressed. According to the White Marlin Open website, of the 325 white marlins hooked, only eight have been boated (98 percent release rate). Just one blue marlin of the 30 caught has been boated (97 percent). All 16 of the spearfish landed have been released. “That’s about a 98.5 percent release ratio,” Motsko said. “It shows you can run a big tournament and have a lot of releases.” A 73.5-pound tuna leads the division. Charles Matattal caught the fish aboard Blinky IV (Point Lookout, New York) on Wednesday. The group could win an estimated $520,000. In second place after three days of weigh-ins was Jake Pilkerton’s 71-pound tuna. He reeled in the fish on Monday aboard Brass Monkey (Leonardtown, Maryland). That fish could bring in $578,000. Dialed In (Spring Lake, New Jersey) angler Davis Rose landed a 69-pound tuna on Monday. The crew has the potential to receive $34,000. Rob Howes’ 62-pound tuna he caught on the Game Changer (Ocean City) on Tuesday could earn him and his teammates $91,000. Motsko said he knew the new T4 See RECORD Page 79

After three days of weigh-ins of the 45th annual White Marlin Open, Bill Haugland’s 75-pound white marlin was the only qualifier in the coveted division. If no other white marlins qualify, the fish could earn the Lights Out crew an estimated $2.6 million.

Record $5.4 mill payout for WMO Continued from Page 78 added entry-level calcutta Heaviest Winner Take All for tuna would be well received by teams. It was better than expected. The cost to enter the calcutta was $3,000. For the crew that catches the heaviest tuna and is entered into that calcutta the payout in just that entry-

level alone is about $383,000. “It seems like we get a lot of boats that like to tuna fish. Last year people were asking, ‘is that all [the calcuttas] you have for tuna?’” Motsko said. “I would say we have about 30 to 40 percent fishing for tuna.” Louis Genello’s 50-pound dolphin

held the top spot in the division as of Thursday morning. He reeled in the fish on Tuesday aboard Fin-Nominal (Indian River, Delaware). In second place was Rob Overfield’s 36-pound mahi he hooked aboard Moxie Boys (Ocean City) on Monday. See FRIDAY Page 80

Continued from Page 78 Series in Livermore, California. That team went 6-0 in regional play and 152 overall, averaging nearly 12 runs per game. “This is much different for me,” McDonough said on Friday. “My son [Tristan] was on that other team and I had those guys for five or six years leading up to that, so I knew them inside out. “This group here, I would say they’re more talented,” he continued. “They don’t have as much experience playing together, so that other group was a real tight-knit group, but these guys are getting there. This team is, overall, more talented.” The all-stars last week held several fundraisers to help pay for travel and other expenses and a GoFundMe, as of Wednesday, had raised $2,905 of a $5,000 goal. McDonough said the team would continue to fundraise as it attempts to climb through the regional tournament and compete for another appearance in the Little League World Series finals. “We’re trying to cover hotels and stuff like that for all the families to be able to go,” McDonough said. “We had a long week up there in Hagerstown, Maryland when we were up there for eight nights, so we’ve already had those expenses and we’re just trying to take the pressure off the families. “The community has been wonderful. It’s been unbelievable, the outpouring of support,” he added. As for the kids? “I know, for them, it’s super special,” McDonough said. “They grew up their whole lives watching the Little League World Series on TV and seeing other teams from the this area have success at that level, so I know it means a lot to them to be able to go and share in this experience.” To donate to the Berlin Little League All-Stars, visit www.gofundme.com/berlin-ll-1112-all-starsto-states?member=457128.

Halcyon (Ocean City) angler Al Aus’ 30-pound dolphin boated on Monday was in third place midweek. Its estimated value is $1,000. Norman Rockwell (Sea Note, Oregon Inlet, North Carolina) picked up a 23pound dolphin on Wednesday. The crew has the potential to win $15,000. Kenny Sexton’s (Desperado, Virginia Beach) 58-pound wahoo led the division as of Wednesday night. The team could take home $2,000. Both the second- and third-place wahoo had an estimated payout of $17,000 each midweek. Charles Dawson (Canyon Hunter, Indian River, Delaware) landed his 55 pounder on Wednesday. Leo Cantillo (The Right Place, Ocean City) was in the third-place spot with his 47-pound wahoo caught on Tuesday. A total of 382 boats are participating in this year’s tournament, which has a

record payout of $5.45 million. In 2017, 353 boats were registered with a payout of $4.97 million. Crews can fish three of five days. A total of 319 boats went offshore on Monday. More than half took a lay day on Tuesday as 150 venture out. On Wednesday, 129 boats headed offshore. When asked Thursday morning how the tournament was going so far, Motsko said, “excellent.” “We’re fortunate to have good weather,” he added. “We have more boats than last year and a larger payout, which is great.” Thursday, 213 fished. “Most boat will be fishing Thursday and Friday,” he said. The final day of fishing is today, Friday. Weigh-ins, which are free and open to the public, are from 4-9:15 p.m. at Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street, bayside.

Ocean City Lacrosse Classic in Berlin, OC this weekend

By Morgan Pilz Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) The 26th annual Ocean City Lacrosse Classic kicked off on Thursday, Aug. 9, and will continue throughout this weekend in both Berlin and Ocean City. The men’s and women’s lacrosse tournaments are taking place at the Northern Worcester County Athletic Complex off Route 113 in Berlin, and at Northside Park on 125th Street in Ocean City. “It was started by Steve Pappas, owner of the Original Greene Turtle in Ocean City, and his college roommates, Dave Cottle, who coaches the Chesapeake Bay Hawks (a semi-professional lacrosse team), Billy Packo and Tommy Dickerson,” Tournament Director Robert Musitano said. “These guys had an epiphany to have a tournament [toward the end] of the summer.

“It started at Ocean City Elementary School,” he continued. “They had a couple days of that, and it had humble beginnings, [starting with] six or eight teams, and has [grown in the past years to] as many as 112 teams.” The four-day tournament is comprised of 75 teams this year and nine divisions. Each team will play a minimum of four games. “They play for fun, but the bragging rights are [sought after too],” Musitano said. “Everyone wants to win. Even if you lose a game, you could still make it to the playoffs and into the finals. We’re trying to keep their interest throughout the weekend.” The 32 Men’s Elite (18 and older), is split into two categories, Elite A (six teams) and Elite B (26 teams); six Trident (27 and older); six Master’s (35 and older) crews; eight Supermaster’s squads (35 and older); and six Men’s

As of Wednesday night, only one qualifying blue marlin had been weighed. Joe Rahman hooked this 881-pound blue marlin aboard the Auspicious (Palm Beach, Florida) on Monday. The estimated payout for the fish is $700,000.

King Neptune (50 and older) teams will compete. Games will take place in both locations, today, Aug. 10, and Saturday, Aug. 11, with play beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing into the evening. The 14 Women’s Elite (18 and older), and three Master’s (27 and older), divisions will compete today, Aug. 10, and Saturday, Aug. 11, at Northside Park beginning at noon. Championship games will be played Sunday, Aug. 12, at Northside Park. Men will compete from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Women will finish out the tournament from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday.

“You’ll see the top lax players in the country,” Musitano said. “Some of the top college players [are] here. Then you’ll see the older guys who were the best in the game that are still playing. Same with the women. It’s just a fun event. “Kids interested in the sport, they get right up and personal and get to talk to the players,” he continued. “These guys are very approachable. It’s a fun thing, it’s the end of the summer, it’s a neat way to get to see a lot of lacrosse. One hundred and twenty-eight men’s games and 28 women’s games. Lot of games going on.” See GAMES Page 81

‘Heels and Reels’ pays out $43,110

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) Despite poor weather and fishing conditions last weekend, 35 boats still registered for the Ocean City Marlin Club’s 10th annual “Heels and Reels” ladies-only fishing tournament, with $43,110 paid out to the winners. “Heels and Reels was great, with less than great weather. Weather was a little worse than we hoped for. I cannot complain about 35 boats,” Franky Pettolina, Ocean City Marlin Club president and co-director of the tournament, said. “A couple dozen marlins were released.

Two junior anglers caught [marlin]. Good payout. I was happy.” M.R. Ducks (Lewis Team) released two spearfish, one white marlin and one blue marlin to earn 450 points. The ladies took first place in the Billfish Release Division. The group also landed a 68.4-pound yellowfin tuna. They received $26,505. Reel Joy anglers came in second place with four white marlin releases. The team was awarded $3,564. The Buckshot crew released three whites to finish in third place. The ladies won $2,376. The Grande Pez team came in first

place in the Dolphin Division with a 16pound mahi. The group took home $7,947. The Leslie Ann team boated a 13.8pound dolphin and was presented $2,214. The Reel Vibrations crews landed a 13.6pound dolphin. The Slaughterhouse’s 12pound mahi earned the group $504. The top junior angler in the tournament was 9-year-old Helen DiGiovanni, who reeled in her first white marlin while fishing on the Reel Estate. Event proceeds, silent auction and 50/50 raffle will again benefit the Marlin Club Crew of OC Scholarship Fund.

Best ready for SEA Paddle NYC competition, Sat.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) The day Ocean City resident Wayne Best has been preparing for is finally here. This Saturday, he will compete for the fourth time in SEA Paddle NYC, a 25-mile paddle around Manhattan to raise funds for environmental preservation and several nonprofit autism organizations. “I’m extremely excited,” Best said earlier this week. “Last year I was coming off shoulder surgery, so I wasn’t expecting to do that great, but I ended up taking 13th and five of the top [placers] were professionals. This year there’s not as many pros, so my chances of finishing higher are much better.” Best trains year-round for the race. Before going to work at Arctic Heating and Air, the 44-year-old is in the gym from 5-6:45 a.m. five days a week. He is on the water at least four days a week. Just about every weekend this summer he competed in paddle boarding races. He also participated in the Ocean City half-marathon in April. “I’ve upped my cardio,” he said. “’I’ve been doing longer, faster runs [and] interval training on the water, so my game has definitely stepped up. My shoulder, it’s not 100 percent, but it’s better than it was last year.” The first year, Best raised about $3,600 and came in first place in the charity class. The last two years he competed in the Men’s 14’ Elite Division. In 2016, Best finished in seventh place, racing against several professional paddlers, and raised about $3,000. Last year, Best was recover-

He placed 13th overall and collected more than $2,700. “I would certainly love to finish in the top 10, but with the lineup that I’ve seen so far, I am going to shoot for the top five,” he said. “I would love to finish in the top five. I’m going to give it 110 percent.” The last two years he finished the race in about four and a half hours. He hopes to cross the finish line in about four hours and 15 minutes this year.

hour. “Wind is not really going to be a factor. There shouldn’t be a whole lot of current or chop with the wind that low, so as long as there’s a good current in the East River and the Harlem River that’s what pushes us through and gets us good time,” he said. “The Hudson is just squirrelly no matter what. There’s no getting around the last 12 miles down the Hudson. “Sometimes the current is with you, sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it switches halfway through,” he added. “It goes up and down with the tide, so you’re never really sure about the Hudson.” Paddlers start their 25-mile trek under the Brooklyn Bridge. They will head north up the East River, into the Harlem River, then down the Hudson River, finishing at Chelsea Piers Marina right before the Statue of Liberty. “Richard Lee, the event organizer, is a terrific guy. He really treats you like royalty from as soon as you get there he always makes sure you’re taken care of,” Best said. “Plus, there’s a great party and awards on a yacht. It’s a fantastic after party. “I’ve met some people at that race who now I’m friends will from all over the country,” he added. “I’ve met a ton of really good people doing this race. A lot of the same people come back year after year.” SEA Paddle NYC is the largest fundraiser for the Surfers’ Environmental Alliance, an organization committed to the preservation and protection of environmental and cultural elements integral to surfing.

Poor Girls Open tournament mantra: ‘March to a Million’

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 10, 2018) The mantra for the 25th annual Capt. Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open, held Aug. 16-18, is “March to a Million.” “The last 12 years we’ve raised $960,000 [for the American Cancer Society], so this year our goal is a million,” said Earl Conley, co-director of the Poor Girls Open. “It should definitely happen. That’s pretty exciting.” Women enjoy fishing in the tournament because it benefits a worthy cause — breast cancer research. Proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society and earmarked for breast cancer research and program development as part of the “Pink Ribbon Classic at the Beach Series” – an assortment of local activities to raise breast cancer awareness while garnering money for the organization. “Ladies want to get involved because they know it’s for a cause,” Conley said, adding that he has received numerous phone calls from women interested in the event. “It seems like it will be well attended.” Everyone has been touched by cancer in one way or another, Conley said, and women like participating in the tournament because the focus is on breast cancer and funds raised are used locally. “They also like the fact that it’s a women’s-only tournament,” he said. Many women, including cancer survivors, make it a tradition to fish annually. Although it is a competition, there is camaraderie among the lady anglers. The cost to enter the tournament is $450 per boat for up to three anglers. Other anglers may be added at $50 each (six-woman crew maximum per boat). Cash prizes will be awarded to the top-three teams with the most billfish release points. White marlin and sailfish releases are worth 100 points each, while blue marlin and swordfish releases earn anglers 110 points. Anglers who boat the three heavi OUR 9TH SEASON!

est tuna, dolphin and wahoo will also receive cash prizes. There are added entry levels/calcuttas for billfish releases, tuna, dolphin and wahoo. Girls 16 and younger may compete in the junior angler division. Registration for the 2018 tournament will begin at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at Bahia Marina, 22nd Street on the bay, in Ocean City. A captains’ meeting will follow. Anglers may fish one of three days: Thursday, Aug. 16, Friday, Aug. 17, or Saturday, Aug. 18. Weigh-ins will take place daily from 4-7:30 p.m. at the marina. Pink Ribbon merchandise will be for sale near the weigh-in scale in the Bahia Marina/Fish Tales parking lot and several vendors will also have booths set up featuring art, clothing and jewelry. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. Donations will be accepted as well. An awards luncheon is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 19, at Harrison’s Harbor Watch at the inlet in Ocean City, from noon to 2 p.m. The competition has grown since its inception. Eight boats participated in the first tournament. Despite registering a couple boats less than in 2016, it was still a record year for the Capt. Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open in 2017. A record 765 lady anglers fished on 155 boats during the 24th annual Open. A total of $222,935 – a tournament record and an increase of about $33,000 from 2016 – was awarded to the winners. To top it all off, event organizers presented a check for $125,000 to the American Cancer Society following the Open. See POOR Page 84

This includes research, programs and services for patients and caregivers and transportation to treatment,” said Mary Bellis, senior community development manager, Northeast Region, American Cancer Society Inc. “The ‘March to a Million’ represents an amazing accomplishment. The 25th Poor Girls Open should be the most exciting ever. “Shawn Harman has provided creativity, dedication and leadership to make this event a success year after year,” Bellis continued. “It is an honor for the ACS to be the beneficiary of the generous donations of the Harman family.” In 2004, the tournament was renamed to honor the founder of the event, the late Capt. Steve Harman.

Ask lifeguards about water conditions, potential hazards By Kristin Joson Contributing Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) It is hard to believe we are just about in the middle of August. So far this summer we have experienced our fair share of rain but mostly we have enjoyed some very pleasant beach days. August typically brings hot humid temperatures and rougher ocean conditions as tropical storm activity gets more prevalent. As the Atlantic Basin experiences more storm activity, it will begin to push larger more frequent waves onto our beaches. With this activity, rip currents, shore break, and what some people refer to as “great body boarding waves,” develop and have the potential to create dangerous situations for swimmers. People who are unaware of the ocean’s power and swiftly changing movements can suddenly find themselves in trouble without realizing it. Swimmers who overestimate their abilities while underestimating the power of the ocean and its waves and currents, may be in for an unpleasant lifealtering experience. The crushing power of a ton of water in the form of a wave can cause serious or fatal bone and joint injuries. In addition to our slogan, “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard is in the stand” we recommend that beach patrons introduce themselves and their children to the surf rescue technician on duty and ask about the current water conditions for the day. The lifeguards are happy to answer any questions. They have information

about potential hazards that you should be aware of. Your surf rescue technician may even gather everyone on their beach around their stand for a safety talk to make sure you are aware of constantly changing conditions. Just because you heard “the talk” before, don’t dismiss it as unnecessary, since it is based on changing conditions and new information. However, if an unfortunate accident should happen, surf rescue technicians are well prepared to handle any emergency. Although broken ankles, dislocated shoulders, concussions and cracked ribs are not uncommon injuries for active people, the most serious of these involve head, neck and back injuries. Most people are aware that on land it is always best not to move a person who may have a back injury. However, in the ocean the movement of the waves makes leaving the victim in the surf, to possibly sustain more injuries, not an option and if they are unconscious or immobile may create a drowning situation. A quick and controlled removal is critical but putting victims on backboards while in the surf can actually cause more damage. Just last week our surf rescue technicians used this method on several different victims all of which had a favorable outcome and no serious injuries. Unfortunately, in a few past instances the neck injury was also associated with cardiac arrest, however, CPR and the use of an AED restarted the victim’s heart, but the outlook is still grim due to broken vertebrae in the neck. Doctors often call us and commend us for the way we extract potential neck See IMPROPER Page 86

By Paige Mallory Passman Staff Writer (Aug. 10, 2018) Eagle’s Landing Golf Course in Berlin will host the Under Armour Golf Tour Maryland Regional Qualifier for the second time on Saturday, Aug. 11. “We had 101 players last year from across the Mid-Atlantic,” said Ray Taranto, tournament director. “This is an individual stroke-play tournament. We should have 100 players or more trying to qualify for the national championship, which will be in Ocean City next June.” Players have to win 12 qualifiers across the nation, which take place in Texas, Pennsylvania, Chicago, New Mexico and Florida, to participate in the regional qualifier in Ocean City. “At each regional, the top 15 players from each region will advance to the 54-hole national championship in Ocean City,” Taranto said. The event format is consider a “stroke-based tournament,” just like the tour professionals play, which is where the competitors play their own golf ball. “There is a division for all skill levels,” Taranto said. The divisions (handicap) are 0-5, 6-11, 12-20 and 21-30. “From golf club champs to golf course record holders, all the way up to your new golfers [are competing],” Taranto added. “There is a division for all skill levels, and females are allowed to play.” The four division winners will win a free national championship package, which is valued at $450. It will also include three rounds of golf at Ocean Pines-Ocean City Golf Club and Eagle’s Landing, as well as two dinners from Off the Hook restaurant group, which is sponsoring dinner for all of the players and their family during the golf tournament. “We are excited to bring the national championship to Ocean City,” Taranto said. “For the past two years, we had the national championship in Port St. Lucie in Florida, so we are excited to bring it back to Ocean City for the third year.” The tournament starts at 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.thetourua.com.

ON GUARD

Improper technique can lead to neck injuries Continued from Page 85 injury victims and keep them immobile until EMS arrives. Ocean City Beach Patrol guards are taught how to effectively and carefully extract victims from the surf who may have sustained an injury to the head, neck or back. Guards work as a team to carry a victim to safety while minimizing movement to the head, neck and back. The beach patrol has collaborated with medical professionals to modify a technique of removing victims with suspected neck or back injuries out of deep and or shallow water. The technique has been refined over many years of training and usage from its introduction as a technique developed in Hawaii. The modified technique is unique to the OCBP, but has developed with input from the medical community and emergency providers. It has been approved by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services as a state standard with the Ocean City Beach Patrol as the only organization that is certified to teach other first responders and organizations in this victim removal technique. Because of our experience and expertise in this area we have been asked by beach patrols as far away as Brazil to share our training materials and

have been featured presenters at several statewide Emergency Medical Services symposiums. We have recently been contact by one of the largest year-round beach patrols in California and they have requested training materials for our technique which they feel is more effective that what their current protocols are. They have even indicated a desire to make our procedure the national standard. As we network with other beach patrols around the world, we all agree that the most common culprit of neck injuries results from swimmers that are body surfing or body boarding incorrectly or in unsafe conditions. To make sure you don’t experience our extraction technique first hand, make sure you use the proper technique for riding waves. The safest method is to get in front of the wave so it is pushing you out in front and finish your ride before running out of water. Body boarding on the top of a breaking wave may cause you to be propelled to the ocean floor. To prevent this, stay on the rear half of the board and if you need to bailout, go off the back of the board. The proper way to body surf a wave is to have your hands out in front of your body; this allows for more control

of movement in the water. The most dangerous condition exists when we are experiencing shore break. Shore break occurs when waves continue to build and crash with full force on the shore with little or no water depth. When unsuspecting victims find themselves on a breaking wave and they are being thrown into shallow water they have set themselves up for a tragedy. Never ride a wave during shore break conditions or play in the impact zone. Although education and prevention are the primary focus of the beach patrol mission, surf rescue technicians are well trained and prepared to handle severe neck and back injuries. If they find a victim unconscious and the injury is unknown, the surf rescue technicians are trained to treat any unknown injury as a suspected neck back injury. Lifeguards will often be alerted to beach patrons with facial abrasions from hitting their head on the ocean bottom. Sometimes people will come up to the guard and tell them they feel tingling after being slammed by a wave. Beach patrol protocol requires, the guards treat these situations as if the victim had a neck back injury. Being aware of the dangers that could occur in the ocean is the first step

to prevention. Diving or doing flips in shallow water as well as riding waves that are breaking on the beach could lead to serious injuries or death. Never underestimate the power of the ocean, keep yourself and your loved ones safe by always checking with the surf rescue technician on duty about daily surf conditions at your beach. Although, each surf rescue technician is fully trained and prepared for any emergency that may occur while they are on duty, they are unable to assist you if you go in the ocean while the beach patrol is off duty. Last year at this time, we had two avoidable tragedies when people chose to swim both before and after our 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. published guarding hours. The greatest sadness with these totally avoidable drowning deaths is that so many people are affected: parents, siblings, children, extended family and friends. Yet, had they not made the very poor decision to swim when lifeguards were off duty, this family would have returned home with wonderful memories rather than planning for a funeral. We are glad you are here and we want to help you stay safe. So please, “Keep your feet in the sand, until the lifeguard is on the stand!”
