EXCELLENT BEEHAVIOR A pollen-laden bumble bee takes flight from a rose of sharon blossom shortly after Sunday morning breakfast. Researchers say bumble bees play a greater role in plant pollination than honey bees, which are experiencing a severe decline in population for reasons yet unknown.

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) With fall automotive event season looming, resort government is looking to pass three ordinances that could address the increasing problems associated with uncouth spectators along Coastal Highway.

Likely the most pointed of the proposals is legislation that would prevent any “public nuisance use” of See PARKING Page 3

Those 200 beach rescues? All in days’ work, or two Really, says Beach Patrol Capt. Butch Arbin, it was what they routinely see

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Nearly 200 rescues from Sunday through Monday may seem high, but according to Ocean

City Beach Patrol Captain Butch Arbin, it’s not even one rescue, per guard a day with about 110 beach patrol members scoping the 10-mile beach during the summer months. “Of the 200 rescues, very few were serious and most were preventive rescues,” Arbin said. “Ninety-five percent of rescues we make on a yearly basis are rip current-related.”

Beach Patrol members made dozens of rescues on Sunday morning before they came on duty with some being serious due to a lateral current dissipating overnight and allowing a path for rip currents to become a problem, he added. “We had a test for lifeguards in the water on Saturday and it was rough, but no rip currents,” Arbin said.

“Sunday was the first beautiful day of the weekend and a couple hundred thousand people come out to the beach.” A boogie boarder became caught in a rip current as lifeguards were arriving Sunday morning and it swept the victim a half a mile offshore.

Parking and landscaping aren’t for spectators Continued from Page 1 parking areas as well as “destructive use” of landscaping areas that are required by the city’s zoning code. Landscaped setbacks are required on almost all buildings in Ocean City for both aesthetic purposes as well as to help absorb stormwater runoff. Likewise, businesses are required to have a certain amount of on-site parking to operate. The definition of “nuisance use” includes the setup of “tents, trailers, structures, cooking devices, chairs, tables, coolers, or other objects for congregational purposes that prevent the use of the parking area for its intended purpose.” The definition of “destructive use” of landscaping is similar, and also includes a prohibition on “the congregation, loitering, or lingering of persons ... for any purpose other than immediate passage.” A second ordinance would also expand the ban on open containers of alcohol, currently applicable only to city property, to include “any required parking area of a business license holder.” “Required parking is required for a reason. We need to make sure that’s what it’s used for,” Meehan said. “Those parking spaces are there for that purpose and not for a party to be set up.” The proposed ordinance would make the offense a misdemeanor for both the person doing the nuisance activity, as well as any business owner found to “permit, enable or allow” the prohibited activity. In other words, since the city requires a certain amount of on-site parking and landscaping for a specific purpose, allowing people to use those areas to congregate and drink while they watch cars go by is a violation not only on the part of the partiers, but by the property owner as well. “The important part is that it would be against a business owner who is offering a lot to be used for consumption,” said Councilman and Police Commission Chair Doug Cymek. “Up until now, it’s been the police department’s responsibility ... we need to draw the business owners

in to help with enforcement.” However, the ordinance would also stipulate that “the employment of security personnel with the posting of signage, or proof of providing written or oral warning of the prohibition to the guests prior to summoning law enforcement, shall create a presumption of compliance with the law by the business license holder.” “So, if the license holder takes any action, the police are going to give the violators a citation and not the business owner,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. Visitors and residents who aren’t visually or aurally impaired will have likely have noticed that disruption along Coastal Highway during spring and fall automotive events has picked up over the past few years. In most cases, the issues do not come from the automotive shows

themselves, which are held on city grounds at the inlet and convention center, or on private property outside the resort. Rather, large numbers of hangers-on and peripheral participants come to cruise Coastal Highway and “be seen” by other enthusiasts, often to the detriment of residents and other visitors who didn’t come on vacation to watch an endless series of burnouts. The sheer mass of such people, however, has stretched the ability of the Ocean City Police Department to maintain order. The proposed ordinances would give the department sound footing to nip the problem groups in the bud before they start acting up. “In most cases, I don’t think the businesses are planning [the rowdy groups], they just sort of happen,” Meehan said.

This doesn’t mean that every single condominium or business will be at risk of fines if revelers set up camp on their property. Rather, the OCPD plans to encourage properties to fulfill the aforementioned “presumption of compliance” clause with some type of standardized signage. “Just like we issue standardized ‘no parking’ signs for towing, I’d imagine you’d see some type of standardized sign that we can get out there,” said OCPD Capt. Kevin Kirstein. Nor does it mean that businesses will never be able to use their parking spaces or landscape areas for public functions. “The intent is that they would have to come to the mayor and city council to get permission to use landscape to set up a party, with any conditions See ORDINANCES Page 5

Rip currents create work for BP after-hours Continued from Page 1 in “Artists Paint OC” sponsored by the Art League saw the emergency unfold and alerted Beach Patrol members. As it happened, two lifeguards in the area quickly entered the water and stayed with the boarder for 30 minutes until a Coast Guard boat pulled everyone to safety. Artist George Kalwa of Baltimore and Ocean City decided to capture the moment in his two-hour Quick

Draw contest painting. His depiction of lifeguards in action, battling the rough waters down at the inlet, won him second place in the contest. “We started Sunday off with pulling people out of the water once we arrived and held educational safety seminars,” Arbin said. The lifeguards made 77 total rescues on Sunday due to the heavy rip currents. Arbin made sure four teams with

Ordinances would have teeth for visitors, business owners Continued from Page 3 and controls that the council may put on them,” Kirstein said. The third ordinance brought through the commission would also prohibit the parking of trailers of any kind on city streets from May 1 to October 31 of a given year. Currently, the city’s code only addresses boat trailer permitting. This is clearly aimed at the large trailers used by event attendees to haul cars, with the trucks and trailers being parked for several days while the show cars are driven, often in

neighborhoods where parking is already tight. “They’re still taking up huge amounts of parking,” Dare said. “These events have become so popular that it has the same impact [as boat trailers].” “It also gives an opportunity for private lots to rent spaces to trailers, instead of having them park for free on public streets,” Meehan said. All three ordinances could be ready for first reading and a vote by the full council at this coming Monday’s session.

Vacationer’s lost German Shepherd sought in Pines By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) A lost dog was circling the Ocean Pines area this week after slipping out of its owner’s leash. The dog was described as a “skittish” female German Shepherd,

Rizzo, approximately 60 pounds and belonging to vacationing Reading, Pa. resident Adam Wawrzyniak. If you have seen the dog call Wawrzyniak at 717-681-4646, or call Worcester County Animal Control at 410-6321340.

two people on mobile patrols continued to ride the beaches after lifeguards went home for the day. On Monday morning, three people were injured at the same inlet area after hitting the rocks while swimming when guards were not on duty, Arbin said. Most rescues on Monday were not life threatening and lifeguards used them as educational purposes to inform swimmers of hazards and to prevent dangerous situations, he added. Ocean City lifeguards made 102 total rescues on Monday and Arbin said the numbers are typical for this time of year. Rip currents form when huge volumes of water and waves pile up near the shoreline. An exit point for the water is to form a narrow stream that moves rapidly away from the shore.

Because rip currents change randomly, it’s hard to know when they will appear in the surf. “The biggest tip is to realize rip currents don’t go away at 5:30 p.m. when our Beach Patrol leaves the stand,” Arbin said. “They exist before and after. When we leave, there is no one there to help them. Only swim when lifeguards are on the stand.” If they find themselves in a rip current, swimmers should follow the “RIP” rule: Relax, I need help and Parallel. “Rip currents do not pull you under; they take you away, so relaxing is the first step,” he said. “Call someone for help while you still have the energy and swim parallel to the beach. Rip currents are not wide and once you swim across it, you should be able to swim back to the beach.”

More tram ads coming after returns of $67K City expects addition of six coaches to turn profit in ‘16 after first-year success

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Whether or not you like them, get ready to see more tram-top advertising panels next season. Ocean City government’s Transportation Committee voiced support this week to expand the offering for next year to all 16 of the city’s tram coaches, spurred on by the fact that the existing 10 advertised coaches have nearly broken even for the year, and will thus be profit-makers in 2016. “We started with it as an unfunded item to build the panels, and we have come about $5,000 short of covering the cost in the first year,” city Public Works Director Hal Adkins said. The city has eight total tram units, with each unit consisting of a motor car or jeep, and two passenger cars. Currently, 10 of the 16 passenger cars have the backlit panels installed, with each car costing roughly $7,200 to fit with panels. Total sales revenue for the summer came to $103,078, Adkins said, although this is shared with Direct Media, the transit marketing agency

that holds the contract to sell advertising on city buses and trams. The city got roughly $67,000 in income, close to breaking even. “So we now have a net revenue stream for next year,” noted Mayor Rick Meehan. The tram-top ads have run into two hurdles since conceived. The city clashed briefly with Direct Media over how heavily the panels were being marketed to local brands, and if splitting up the coaches and allowing advertisers to buy just one panel would lower the price point in order to draw in local business. This desire was the result of fears by Boardwalk merchants that out-oftown brands would be heavily featured on the trams, thus drawing business away from the boards on which they run. Some found the panels to be a bit garish, to which city officials disagree. “After seeing them up there, it’s not obtrusive,” said Council Secretary Mary Knight. “I almost enjoy it because of the backlights.” The city’s trams actually turn a profit, which is used to subsidize losses elsewhere in the town’s transportation fund, namely the cost of running city buses, which are by themselves a money-losing proposition.

Stansells donate $100K to Worcester Ed. Foundation Money will help finance conversion to digitized classrooms in county

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Local restaurateurs Macky and Pam Stansell, owners of Macky’s Bayside Bar and Grill, have contributed $100,000 to the Worcester County Education Foundation in an effort to prime the donation pump. “We started going public in an effort to spur my peers on — it’s the only reason why we’ve gone public,” Macky said. For years, the Stansells have quietly supported local causes such as education and the expansion of Coastal Hospice, preferring to stay out of the limelight. “Philanthropy has always been a thing for me. We’ve been doing scholarships at Stephen Decatur High School for 12 years, until last year,” Macky said. Finding the scholarship amounts available to Decatur students adequate, the Stansells decided to repurpose some of the funds they had set aside for donations. “When this new effort started, we decided to take our money in a differ-

ent direction, because we’d determined we weren’t going to be leaving anyone in the lurch. I sold Pam on the idea pretty early on,” he said. Last fall, the Worcester County Education Foundation was formed as a public/private partnership to fund a digital conversion in county schools — providing specific technology to students on a one-to-one ratio. Elementary school students will be provided access to tablets, middle school students are to be supplied with Chromebooks, Internet-focused laptops using a Google operating system, and high school students will be provided with laptops. Only the high school students will be able to keep their devices with them outside of school grounds. “Considering we only started last fall and did have a slow start after the initial donation by Taylor Bank of $100,000 we’ve still managed to raise between $300,000 and $400,000. The measure of our success is not in dollars but in what we can do to better our students’ educations,” Todd Ferrante, foundation chair, said. High school students will begin receiving devices in early September. Stephen Decatur ninth-grade students will be able to pick theirs up on Sept. 2, Snow Hill High School students on Sept. 3 and Pocomoke high

However, the schools will not meet the 1:1 ratio between students and technology this school year, Stulz said. By the end of this year the ratio, depending on particular schools, will be somewhere between 2:1 and 4:1, she explained. “We’ll have 2:1 in most of the

Decision looming on continuation of free OC events

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Time is running out for the city to decide whether the summer fireworks and laser shows will have to continue on a year-to-year approval, or if they may be improved by virtue of a longer-term contract. After having let the issue sit for several months, Ocean City officials have to make a decision by September if they want to continue with the free family attractions held during the summer, as well as addressing the funding mechanism that has limited the city’s ability to bring in further events beyond what it already has. The city’s tourism commission reviewed numbers this week purporting to show attendance at the events, although the accuracy of the count is somewhat subjective. “With the data we have by September, if we feel good about what we’re offering, we can go ahead and look at a two-year contract, which would be cheaper,” said City Council Secretary and Tourism Commission Chair Mary Knight. The events are put on by TEAM Productions, the company of local promoters Bob Rothermel and Jack Hennen. Over the past several years, TEAM has expanded the program’s offering while keeping the price to the town – $300,000 per year – constant, by streamlining the events’ considerable materials costs. TEAM’s program now includes one laser light show and two fireworks shows per week downtown, as well as a fireworks show for Sundaes in the Park at Northside Park uptown. The package also includes the OCtoberfest events around Halloween, and a sand art festival. But to expand further, Rothermel said, he would need a multi-year deal with the town in order to attract advertisers and create additional cash flow. “The only way we can keep adding to it is to have a longer-term agreement and get advertisers to come in and pick up the costs,” Rothermel said. “Now that we have the laser ball, it gives us something to sell, but if it stays year-to-year, I’ve got nothing to offer advertisers ahead of time.” City officials, however, want to know exactly how many people are attending – although it is hard to separate between those that came specifically for the shows and those who are simply passing by on the Boardwalk, but are staying out later While the city’s counts pegged some nights’ attendance around 300 to 400 people, Rothermel said he was consistently seeing attendance above 1,000. “Having someone there counting with a clicker is completely subjective,” Rothermel argued. “We may be seeing 300 people gathered before the show, but by the time we’ve started, there are at least 1,000 who have stopped and See ROTHERMEL Page 11

Nationwide search on for new Ocean City top mgr. Council inks contract with consultant Slavin to run executive hiring process

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) The hunt is on for the Town of Ocean City’s next city manager. The City Council inked a contract this week with Slavin Management Consultants, described as “the nation’s premier governmental consulting firm,” to conduct a nationwide candidate search for the resort’s next chief executive officer, following the abrupt resignation of former city manager David Recor last month. Slavin consultants will be meeting with city officials in the coming days to establish a job description and find out exactly what the city is looking for in its next top employee. Slavin will then conduct the proverbial headhunt of top-level municipal managers from around the nation. “They will probably come in to us with 10 to 12 final candidates, of which five or six will be interviewed by the council to make a final selection,” said city Human Resources Director Wayne Evans. Slavin’s schedule of expenses, per contract, is not to exceed $22,373. The process is estimated to take 60 to 90 days. “Assuming it takes 30 days for someone to end work at their old position and get here, we’re probably 120 days out from having someone physically in the office,” Evans said. Mayor Rick Meehan is currently filling the essential duties of city manager, following Recor’s resignation on July 20. The sudden departure stemmed from controversy over

a July 10 incident, in which Recor was involved in a minor accident in his city-issued vehicle. However, Recor waited until the end of the day to take a drug and alcohol screening, as required by the city’s insurance policy. The test came back negative, and Recor was not found to have been under the influence of alcohol or any substance at the scene by state police, per their report. However, the casual breach of policy was seen by many as evidence of Recor’s disconnect from the day-today operations of the city and his aloof manner with other employees. The simmering concerns, which had long been voiced to council members, caused Recor and the city’s political leadership to agree to a mutual parting of ways. Recor had been recruited from his previous post as city manager in Fort Pierce, Fla. by a similar process. Former city manager, and now councilman, Dennis Dare resigned in September 2011 following conflict with the council over employee pay and benefits changes. The city hired executive consultants Springsted Inc., to conduct a search that saw Recor come to Ocean City in June of 2012. Incidentally, it was noted in passing at this week’s council session that Recor’s city-purchased Chevy Tahoe, the subject of much scrutiny, would be transferred to the Ocean City Police Department, saving the city some money by purchasing one less patrol SUV than was scheduled for this fiscal year’s vehicle replacements. Although he is technically eligible for a city vehicle as both mayor and city manager, Meehan has declined a taxpayer-funded car during his tenure.

Rothermel eyeing multi-year deal for weekly TEAM events Continued from Page 9 stay through.” Saying he was underwhelmed with the numbers, Councilman Dennis Dare suggested the program be moved earlier. Shows currently start at 9:30, 10:00, or 10:30 p.m. “We’re doing these to pull in families, but a lot of them start too late for those with small children,” Dare said. However, Boardwalk merchants seem to prefer to keep the shows as-is. While the programs may draw in a few visitors who are coming just for the laser and fireworks shows, the real value is pulling in Boardwalk passersby and getting them to stay out later, and thus likely spend more. “It’s obvious on the nights we don’t have the fireworks. There’s a mass exodus and the Boardwalk is empty

much earlier,” said Shenanigan’s owner Greg Shockley. While the city continues to gather numbers, it will also have to make a decision on how to fund the shows, if they are to continue. Currently, TEAM’s work is paid for via funds from the city’s Tourism Advisory Board (TAB), a group of business owners who are given $300,000 annually by the town as seed money for new events. But with TEAM’s lack of a longterm contract, and thus inability to attract outside advertisers, the programs have continued to be paid for year-toyear out of TAB’s budget. “TAB has $300,000 to do this and it pretty much all goes to Bob,” Shockley said. “If we keep doing it this way, TAB is essentially useless.”

Council considers alternatives to R-1A zone City now working on Realtor’s suggestion for stricter license; enforcement doubts remain

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Rarely are the practical solution and the ideal one the same thing and there are times when they would seem to be in competition. That’s where Ocean City government has found itself, on two parallel tracks with competing philosophies as to how to address ongoing concern about single-family homes being rented out to large groups of rowdy vacationers. This week, the City Council heard a presentation from the head of the Coldwell Banker’s coastal rentals, Chris Mitchell, who suggested a more stringent licensing system to address the problem, as an alternative to the proposed creation of an R-1A zoning designation that would prevent rentals of less than a 12-month lease in certain existing R-1 single-family zoning districts. “The best thing we can do as an industry and a town is to focus on occupancy levels,” Mitchell suggested. The council voted unanimously to have city staff look further into the feasibility of Mitchell’s proposal, continuing the past year’s trend of field-

ing various ideas to solve the problem Only existing R-1 zones would be without committing to a specific ac- considered for the “upgrade” to R-1A, tion. with homes that are currently being But with the positive recommen- run as tourist enterprises likely given dation of the city’s Planning and Zon- an amortization period to comply. ing Commission for R-1A legislation According to Knight, 75 to 80 perstill on the table – the council has yet cent of homeowners in both Mallard to vote to accept or reject the com- Island and Heron Harbor have mission’s findings – there is still clear signed petitions supporting an R-1A interest in moving ahead with the conversion, if the city were to create zoning idea.

vacation rentals, and for how many occupants. The city would then be able to inspect the premises for compliance with occupancy limits, and to hold owners or Realtors accountable if the property is being marketed for a number of persons above the approved capacity. A public database, Mitchell suggested, would also be created so that neighbors could find out what properties are be rented by whom and for how many people. Although he noted he was disappointed by the relative lack of engagement by Realtors and rental agents up until now, Mayor and acting City Manager Rick Meehan, himself a Realtor, said the idea had merit. “If we had something like this in place now, we’d be in a better position, so I think it’s worth looking at,” Meehan said. Mitchell’s proposal is admittedly rough, and several issues will likely have to be ironed out, some of which may be deal-breakers for those who have advocated strongly for the R-1A proposal. First, the city calculates maximum occupancy under the International Property Maintenance Code, which dictates that rooms of under 70 square feet can be considered a sleeping space, and all sleeping spaces must have at least 40 square feet per See DUAL Page 14

Dual solutions now on table for rental issue Continued from Page 12 occupant. This means that single-family homes can actually house a huge number of people, far beyond what may be considered acceptable by neighbors, but still not considered a safety hazard by the IPMC. Additionally, the city’s zoning code already dictates that single-family homes cannot be occupied by more than four persons who are not related by blood or marriage. Otherwise, they can be occupied by a single family unit with a single shared cooking facility. However, this is largely unenforceable, since the city’s zoning enforcement staff lacks the manpower or legal authority to track the exact familial relations of anyone in a given unit. Although Mitchell suggested the city could require Realtors to advertise R-1 units for no more than four unrelated persons, via the proposed expanded licensing application, ground enforcement would still be hard to verify. Additionally, there is also the fundamental question of how well the city will be able to force landlords and Realtors to comply with an expanded licensing system, such as Mitchell’s

There was also the suggestion that a proposal like Mitchell’s could help those areas that don’t end up as R-1A zones, or could be useful if the R-1A proposal is modified. It has been suggested, but not officially brought forward, to compromise by reducing the 12-month minimum on the current R-1A proposal to, for instance, a three-month minimum or some other shorter term. “This would be very helpful for those areas that do not become R-1A, if that happens,” Meehan said. “I think it’s a good first step or a part of a solution, without ignoring what is already pending legislation or possible legislation, which can still be amended, possibly to compromise on the length of the rentals.”

City to put Tesla chargers at convention center, for free Electric sports car company provides equipment, covers install costs for destinations

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Recharge your life at the beach while you recharge your car at the convention center. That’s the concept, as the city is looking to generate interest from electric car owners by installing three charging stations at the city lot just south of the convention center on 40th Street, a move inspired by the Tesla meet-up earlier this spring that generated plenty of tourism interest. “It’s something that’s going to be growing in popularity,” said Councilman Wayne Hartman, who suggested the city participate in what Tesla calls it’s “Destination Charging Partner” program after talking with visitors at the April rally on the Boardwalk. “With this, Tesla will put us on a mapper so people with Teslas can see us as a destination,” he said. Tesla produces high-end cars that have become well known for exceptional speed and handling, despite being zero-emissions, fully electric vehicles. Depending on the model, the cars have 200 to 300 miles of range before they must be recharged, which can take several hours depending on the available amperage. The company will provide charging equipment, for free, to any location that may attract Tesla drivers, and will pay $1,500 toward installation costs. The Salisbury mall and, curiously, Chanceford Hall Bed and Breakfast in Snow Hill, are currently the only Eastern Shore locations with Tesla chargers. City Engineer Terry McGean recommended going ahead with the standard package of two Tesla charg-

ing stations, plus one universal charger that could be used on other, non-Tesla electric vehicles, which Tesla would also sponsor. The $4,500 subsidy from Tesla would more than cover the town’s installation costs, McGean said. “The one issue is that the equipment they provide is not metered, so there’s no way using that equipment to charge the user for the electricity they use,” McGean said. “If we saw use going up, we could always add our own meter to recoup some of the cost.” Electricity cost would be minimal, at about $1 per hour of charging, creating a negligible expense even if the stations were consistently used. Still, Councilman Dennis Dare said he had a “fundamental problem” with providing a product for free. “We’re using tax money to subsidize someone’s transportation,” Dare said. “I’d rather see this somewhere where a private business provides this to people who will come in and patronize their business.” However, the city itself frequently provides services that lost taxpayer money at face value, on the assumption that these services draw in visitors and thus a net return in tax dollars. The city airport and golf course lose $570,000 annually, and unlike the Tesla chargers, aren’t even located within the city limits. “If someone comes with a Tesla and stays in a hotel, that dollar [spent on charging] comes back to us tenfold,” Hartman said. “During the event, guess where a lot of them stayed? Salisbury. We didn’t get that revenue. They stayed in Salisbury because that’s where the chargers are.” The council voted five-to-two, with Dare and Council President Lloyd Martin opposed, to move ahead with the chargers at the convention center.

Fees for minor HVAC permits to more than double in city Looking to recoup staff costs, town to hike price to $65 from current $30

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) If you’re looking to replace any hard-wired HVAC equipment soon, be prepared to pay an extra $35. The City Council voted this week to more than double the city’s current fee for nonstructural electrical and mechanical replacement permits, from the current $30 up to $65, a number which is thought to better reflect the actual cost of staff time spent reviewing the permits. However, Councilman Wayne Hartman continued his strident objection to the increase, voicing his view that hiking the cost of minor permits was a losing proposition. “Once again, I would suggest that simple replacement of heating and air-conditioning systems can be done without a permit,” Hartman said. “Keep in mind these both still require a third-party outside inspector … that’s going to make every one of these jobs have a permitting fee well in excess of $100. It’s crazy.” The desire to hike the fee for mechanical and electrical permits is driven by the city’s belief that building and construction inspections should be paid for by those who are required to get the permits, and not have of the city’s inspection costs subsidized by the public at large. “When we last discussed this, we asked Kevin [Chief Building Inspector Kevin Brown] to go back and look at the cost, and the current staff cost is approximately $65 ... he went back and justified these costs,” said Councilman Tony DeLuca. “I don’t feel that a resident who is not funding a permit should fund the difference [of $35].” For permits that involve structural modification, the cost is pegged to the value of the work, thus scaling the permit fees to reflect how much work city inspectors may spend reviewing and certifying them. But for nonstructural electrical and mechanical work, the city uses a flat fee. Prior to 2009, that fee was on $6. However, the city’s building department actually turned a profit during this time, despite

the low fee for minor permits, because of the income from value-pegged fees on larger permits during the condo boom. “Housing peaked in 2006, so our department was being supplemented by that peak, which started to dissipate in 2009,” Brown said. “That’s another reason we’re coming back and asking these fees be increased, not just because of the labor part of it, but the economy side.” In the last fiscal year, from permits, inspections, zoning hearings, and other functions for which a fee is charged totaled about $850,000 for the year. But expenses in the city’s planning, zoning and building department were double that, including over $1.3 million in salary and benefits for the department’s staff. Electrical-only and mechanical-only permits are a very small part of that whole picture. With 328 permits issued last year, as Brown had tallied, raising the fee to $65 would net an additional $11,480 in revenue, a relative drop in the bucket compared to the overall operating loss. But while the majority opinion was in favor of recouping this cost, however marginal, Hartman again pointed out that the low dollar figure, combined with a lack of compliance, made the minor permit system frivolous. With the city estimating over 30,000 HVAC systems in the resort, compared to the amount of permitted jobs, many are being done without permits, Hartman said. “My whole issue is how many are being done with permits, versus the large number that are being done without,” Hartman said. The city has not always required permits for minor electrical and mechanical work, City Engineer Terry McGean said, but began doing so many years ago after faulty installation of a replacement heating unit caused a carbon monoxide leak that killed several people. “It was a repair to an existing system that was not done properly ... that’s where the requirement came from,” McGean said. The council voted six-to-one to raise the fee, with Hartman in objection. “I would also hope we could also raise the penalty for not getting a permit, to encourage people to do the right thing,” noted Councilman Doug Cymek.

Assateague celebrates 50 years as nat’l park Once slated for commercial development, seashore opened as preserve in ‘65

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) To mark 50 years as a National Park, Assateague Island is having a celebration today, Aug. 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the park on Stephen Decatur Highway. Attendees can participate in vintage games and making crafts from the late 1960s including tie-dye, weaving looms and pet rocks. In addition, a Scales and Tales animal exhibit will take place with rehabilitated birds of prey including hawks, owls and a bald eagle. There will be a photo display of old pictures, memories and current images of the state park. Local, regional and volunteer groups will be on hand to teach the community about the environment and history in the area. Members from the National Aquarium, Harriet Tubman State Park, the Rackliffe House, the National Park Service and Coastal Stewards are among the many who will be in attendance dur-

ing the celebration. suggested barrier reefs and other At around noon, guest speakers coastal treasures should be protected will share memories of the park and for resource and recreational use their present day perspectives. throughout the nation.

built and damaged the others, which provided the final push for state and federal forces to make the entirety of Assateague Island a publicly owned National Park. The Maryland State Roads Commission completed the Assateague Island Bridge in late 1964 and construction began on the park. Assateague National Park opened in 1965 with the next seven years dedicated to improvements for a bathhouse, concession building, a large parking area, campground loops and shower buildings were added. Simultaneously, the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began their role in seashore preservation along Assateague Island. In addition, the United States Congress authorized the establishment of the Assateague Island National Seashore in September of 1965. Currently, all three park agencies manage Assateague Island. “We work closely with the National Seashore in all aspects of managing the parks and it’s great we are celebrating 50 years of working together,” Baldwin said. Assateague Island is home to more than 320 species of birds, 120 famous horses, sika deer, snakes, foxes, rabbits, turtles and raccoons. “I often hear beautiful, pristine, peaceful and calming as words to de-

It’s associated with good memories and they meet other families.” Many families come back the same week each year and choose the same loop to spend vacation with the same people, she added. “Our staff and employees feel like a family as well,” Baldwin said. In the 1960s, visitors brought huge tents to Assateague Island with popup campers showing up a couple years later. It was not until the late eighties trailers and recreational vehicles started to appear at the campsites. “The camping units may have changed over the years, but the beautiful sunsets over the island remain the same,” Baldwin said.

Golden Quarter Farm to be Frazier’s legacy

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) In 2005, the county entered into an agreement with Sandra Frazier to protect her 146-acre farm in perpetuity as wildlife habitat via two easements. A decade later, it is this farm that will serve as her legacy.

Frazier recently approached the county commissioners to approve a new house to be constructed on the second of the two easements, where such development would be allowed. The urgency of the matter was due to Frazier’s failing health, and she wanted to ensure the house design would meet her standards. The ease-

ment only allowed for one other house to be built on a 10-acre subsection near the main residence. The county granted her request, provided the project passed through all the normal phases of property development, including permits and approvals. Essentially, as long as she followed the guidelines, Frazier would have her house the way she wanted. She died only two days later. “The property is an ecological gem protected in perpetuity by the owner for habitat establishment and stands watch over the western shore of Ayres Creek as a monument to Ms. Frazier’s desire to better her little patch of Worcester County for generations to come,” Bob Mitchell, county director of environmental services said. To get the easement, Frazier had to lower the asking price for her farm, in the end selling at a “bargain rate,” according to Worcester County officials, in combined local, state and federal funds, as well as outside sources of income. Frazier’s easement went far exceeded what is normally required of the typical conservation easements in the county. Under the deal, no development, agricultural or timber harvest is permitted and both the woodland and marsh must be maintained as wildlife habitat. No public access is provided for in the easement, but there has been a history of

public use on the property, according to County Planner Katherine Munson. “Sandra Frazier had an unusual and bold vision as a landowner. She wanted not just to protect her farm, but also to restore the land. These 140 acres will forever be a sanctuary for wildlife and protect the water quality of Ayres Creek. This is a special property and place that benefits us all. I am personally proud that Worcester County was a partner in this project,” Munson said. The property includes one mile of shoreline along Ayres Creek, 80 acres of agricultural fields replanted with trees and 60 acres of forest and marsh. In two years, 120 species of birds have been documented on the property, including hooded mergansers, which roost in only about 20 sites in Maryland. Eleven different species of frogs and toads, plus 14 species of ducks have been observed on the site. “It’s a huge loss to the community, Sandra was one of the most selfless and generous people I’ve ever worked with. She did things because she cared, not because of ‘greenwashing’ or in an attempt to sell something,” Dave Wilson, who worked with Frazier in his capacity as director of the Maryland Coastal Bays program said.

County health dept. collects $75K fed. grant Targets difficult to reach populations of watermen, farmers, small businesses

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Hoping to reach more people such as watermen, farmers and small business owners in underserved communities, the Worcester County Health department applied for and received a grant for $75,000 from the U.S. Health and Human Services department to help with its effort to educate the public on government health insurance. “Our role is to help people who are really hard to reach: agriculture, seafood and small businesses but who are the bread and butter of the Eastern Shore economy.

was going to start from the bottom and work her way up through grassroots programs, piggybacking onto other events that also serve these people and making appointments for one-on-one consultations. “We’re not approaching this alone. We’re working with community partners like the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Agriculture Extension, and Salisbury University’s Small Business Development Center,” she said. The grant covers the programs for one year and is renewable for up to three years. One of the challenges of this program is the absence of hard data on how many people could benefit from the provided services. There’s no good way to tell how many people are not covered, or have too much or too little coverage or are spending too much on their health insurance. But, as time goes on, Gunby said she hopes that data will be collected alongside providing people with the proper health insurance. To speak directly with trained staff able to answer healthcare-related questions, call 855-445-5540. “There’s no middleman. Lines are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday,” Gunby said.

Boaters to be barred during nesting season; DNR will enforce closure with tickets

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Raising a flag on a deserted island just doesn’t have the impact it used to. Such is the case of the manmade pile of sand in the middle of the Isle of Wight known formally as Collier’s Island. It was created last year out of dredge spoil, recognized early this season as a fun place to beach a boat and play and did have the stars and stripes hoisted above it. Yet, it belongs to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, which has other plans. Ocean City bays have to be dredged to keep them navigable, since the 1933 storm that cut the inlet and all the storms in the intervening years move sand to places inconvenient for the local boaters, anglers and commercial fishing enterprises. This particular island’s creation came about as the answer to the standard question: what to do with the dredge material. Sometimes it is redeposited on the beaches, sometimes it is trucked to another location and

sometimes it is used to create islands. In 1964, Maryland law established that all islands created in the Isle of Wight, Sinepuxent and Chincoteague bays belong to the DNR and are to be used for conservation purposes. That was the idea behind Collier’s Island, which the DNR plans to use as a waterbird nesting ground. “The reason people can go on the island now is because it wasn’t finished — birds didn’t nest there,” Sandi Smith, development and marketing coordinator for the Maryland Coastal Bays program, said. As such, when the island is expected to be finished next year, the DNR intends to close it to human traffic during nesting season, known in Ocean City terms as “summer,” or, more precisely, from April 1 to Sept. 15. This year, however, dozens of boats can be spotted beached or anchored there during peak hours. Earlier this year someone installed a flagpole more than 10 feet tall and outfitted it with LED lights on the island to fly the star spangled banner. “This is just Sandi Smith, a 30year resident, talking but I don’t see why anyone would think it’s OK to install a cement slab and flagpole here when they wouldn’t do it on As-

Popular sandbar to be closed to boats sateague or the Ocean City beach,” Smith said. Learning of the intent to close the island to recreational boaters, resident Chuck Idol began circulating a petition to keep the island open to recreational traffic. “This small island has taken a massive amount of pressure off other areas. There are so many different ways to approach this and it seems like we’re trying the same thing over and over,” Idol said. Idol contends boaters feel travelling under the Harry Kelley Bridge is dangerous and that this island is perfectly suited to recreational traffic. This island is accessible to boats on all sides, when others such as the sandbar in front of Hooper’s crab house in West Ocean City can be trickier. “Really we want to be a part of the community and solution — this is such a positive unplanned outcome from a dredging event. Handled properly, I see it as generating lots of revenue and good will for Ocean City and surrounding areas as well as the birds,” Idol said in a prepared statement. The use of the word “unplanned,” however, would likely earn a strong rebuttal from the DNR, considering that it established back in 1998 how manmade islands here were to be used.

It happened that the money to fund the dredging did not become available until two years ago as part of the Hurricane Sandy recovery. Because the funding can be traced back to tax dollars, the petitioners contend they should not disqualified from using the island since they helped, in part, to fund its creation. “If people wanted a party spot in the bay one could be created —

‘It’s possible the birds won’t nest there, but if they do John Q. Citizen will have an uphill battle’ County Commissioner Bud Church dredging is ongoing. They can have the meetings and go through the process. To me, it’s fairer than squatter’s rights,” Smith said. The department of natural resources favors Smith’s view. “DNR regularly enforces exclusion areas and time-of-year restrictions on state-owned lands. We always aim primarily to educate the public about laws and regulations before citing infractions, but DNR can charge persons who willfully or repeatedly violate the law,” Kristen Peterson, senior manager of strategic communications for the DNR, said.

County Commissioner Bud Church had been contacted by Idol for support, however Church said his hands are tied. “The county has no jurisdiction over the island. I understand where [Idol is] coming from, but my feeling is the environmentalists will win out. It’s possible the birds won’t nest there, but if they do John Q. Citizen will have an uphill battle,” Church said. That battle may include citations.  “There is no exclusion window for endangered species in effect on the island in question for 2015. The Natural Resources Police will be enforcing boating and safety laws in the area, especially when large numbers of boaters aggregate there,” Peterson said. Smith said this discussion reminded her of the decision to close Skimmer Island, located just north of the Route 50 bridge, in the 1980s. “People were saying it would ruin the town,” Smith said, alluding to the growth in resort tourism since that time. Though the official comment period on the use of this island has long since expired, Peterson said the DNR is still receptive. “We welcome feedback from all stakeholders. Email: customerservice.dnr@maryland.gov,” she said.

Page includes updated content and fresh design, but no new services, yet

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Concerned by the outdated look and feel of the county government’s website, Worcester County’s IT department began updating the site that launched this week. “This is a much-needed refresh,” IT manager Brian Jones said, “but it’s still a work in motion. Right now, we’re focused on the look of the site, adding more photos and updating the content.” A preview for the new site had appeared last week, with the notice that the former layout of the site would be going away with the relaunch. The data found on the site, Jones said previously, isn’t really the issue — the organization of the departments, how users interact with the site and how the content is managed has grown beyond its current capabilities. “The current site has done well for what it is, but we need to change content on the fly, and limit the cost of the software,” he said. The county site, found at

www.co.worcester.md.us, has been a sore spot for a while, but content management had become increasingly difficult since the site depends on expensive software licenses to grant individuals the ability to update information. The new site, Jones said, makes better use of physical county assets: buildings, facilities and employees, by featuring them prominently on what had been a text-heavy site. “We want people to see our buildings, so if you look on the page for Animal Control, for example, there’s a photo of it right there,” Jones said. Jones said he had always been impressed with the county’s buildings. “We have some beautiful buildings here and in the county — let’s use them in photos. The courthouses, the towns — the county is a beautiful place,” he said in a previous interview. The new site will also interlock with its own ongoing social media efforts, and, for the first time, with the municipalities. “We’re going to highlight each town in the county, where they had nothing before. All of our social media will also be tied in to one place,” Jones said. The new site mimics the appearance of the county’s Intranet, which

is functions like the Internet but is constructed, managed, maintained and, in theory, accessible, only to members of a particular organization. In this case, it’s county employees. “It’s important to note that we’re doing this for the taxpayer — this isn’t just stuff we want to see or want to do. If anyone has a thought or suggestion, they should feel free to contact us,” Jones said. One example of the changes made by IT staff concerns the county commissioners. Previously, their names and contact information were simple text headings on a dedicated page. Now, large pictures of each commissioner accompany biographical and contact information, plus meeting information, agendas, minutes and the public’s copy of the informational packets provided based on the commissioner’s own packets will be available for viewing or download on the same page. Right now, Jones said, the redesigned website will not be supporting any new functions, such as online bill paying. Jones did say the staff was looking at options to provide these services, starting with the Volunteer Services Department and examining the capability of the new accounting software due to be purchased by the county treasurer soon.

National Night Out successes tauted by Ocean City PD

(Aug. 14, 2015) The Ocean City Police Department, in coordination with the Bayshore Drive and Caine Woods Neighborhood Watch groups, celebrated the 32nd annual National Night Out on Aug. 4 at Fiesta Park in Caine Woods and Gullway Villas on Lark Lane. Dozens of community members, police officers and town officials were in attendance at both events in addition to representatives of the Worcester County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, Maryland State Police and Department of Juvenile Services. National Night Out is a neighborhood event that occurs nationwide with the goal of promoting community involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that the number one crime prevention tool is having a great relationship with our community, and National Night Out helps promote that,â&#x20AC;? Chief Ross Buzzuro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is not only a great way for us to build relationships with our community, but also for community members to get out and meet their neighbors.â&#x20AC;? OCPD encourages citizens to be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;eyes and earsâ&#x20AC;? of their community by reporting crime or suspicious activity to the Ocean City Police Department. For more information regarding National Night Out, or the Ocean City Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in National Night Out, contact the OCPD Public Affairs Office at 410-520-5395.

Alleged rape Police from the Worcester County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office arrested Victor Checco-Penna, 26, of the Dominican Republic after he allegedly raped a 19-year-old woman on July 31. The investigation was turned over to the Worcester County Bureau of Investigations upon police arrival and

the victim was transported to the hospital for a rape kit collection. A Maryland State Police Trooper had to be called in to act as a translator during interviews and the execution of search warrants during the investigation following the incident. Based on translated interviews with the alleged victim, Checco-Penna was arrested and charged with sec-

ond-degree rape, fourth-degree sex offense and assault in the second degree on Aug. 5. Both the alleged victim and accused are working in Worcester County on a J-1 Visa.

Fleeing from traffic stops Ocean City police officers arrested three people in the early on Aug. 6 after two drivers from unrelated traffic stops fled the scene. A little after 2 a.m., officers reportedly saw a vehicle speeding downtown and were attempting to stop it, when the vehicle accelerated quickly, according to the report. Police reported Yusuf Agduman, 21, of Ocean City was going at least 15 miles over the speed limit and nearly struck a pedestrian legally attempting to cross the street on St. Louis Avenue. The vehicle came to a stop shortly afterwards and police allegedly found marijuana that had been thrown out of the vehicle during the chase. Agduman was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, obstructing and hindering a police officer and multiple other traffic violations. The passenger in the vehicle, Onur Bolaca, 23, of Ocean City was also arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, obstructing and hindering a police officer and littering. About an hour later, Ocean City police saw a vehicle speeding on the Boardwalk and approached the driver, Derrick Freeman, 26, of Newport News, Va. Police said Freeman sped away and was stopped by nearby officers about eight blocks down Philadelphia Ave. Freeman allegedly failed a series of field sobriety tests and was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol. He was issued numerous traffic citations, was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and released after posting a $2,500 bond.

DUI Matthew Kee, 20, of Stockton, Md. was arrested on Aug. 8 for driving while under the influence of alcohol. Maryland State troopers were called to the intersection of Routes 707 and 50 after Keeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front seat passenger fell out of his truck and onto the road, the report stated. During the investigation, police said Kee was arrested after he failed field sobriety tests. Kee allegedly refused to take an alcohol concentration test and was charged with driving without a license, driving on a suspended license, driving while under the influence, driving while impaired and he was issued a civil citation for suspected marijuana less than 10 grams. The passenger suffered minor injuries from his fall.

Keying cars Samantha Sigmund, 20, of Ambridge, Pa. was arrested on Aug. 9 for keying cars in a nightclub parking lot. Ocean City police were told by security they had kicked out Sigmund moments before because she was using a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license that did not belong to her, the report said. Police said security footage showed Sigmund running her keys along the driver door, hood and passenger sides of the security guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car before doing the same to additional vehicles in the area. After finding Sigmund, police said she handed them a license belonging to another person. Sigmund was placed under arrest for malicious destruction of property in addition to displaying and possessing a fictitious license.

Assault Ocean City police officers arrested Gregory Rattan, 32, of Manassas, Va. for entering a hotel room uninvited and getting into bed with an occupant. Police said the two women staying in the room had met Rattan earlier in the evening but did not see him after going out for the evening. At around 3 a.m., one of the women heard the door to their hotel room open and Rattan got into bed with her, according to police. Police said Rattan seemed extremely intoxicated and claimed he had no recollection of the incident. Rattan was arrested and charged with third- and fourth-degree burglary, second-degree assault and fourth-degree sex offense.

WORLD WAR II: JAPAN SURRENDERS

Japanese accept Potsdam Declaration, Aug. 15

By Peter Ayers Wimbrow III Contributing Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) This week, 70 years ago, the Emperor of Japan, Hirohito, addressed his subjects on the radio for the first time. Actually, it was not quite that. On Aug. 14, the emperor recorded the statement that was played the next day. He told his subjects that, “After pondering deeply the general trends of the world and the actual conditions obtaining in our empire today, we have decided to effect a settlement of the present situation by resorting to an extraordinary measure. “We have ordered our government to communicate to the governments of the United States, Great Britain, China and the Soviet Union that our Empire accepts the provisions of

their joint declaration.” The “joint declaration” to which he referred was the Potsdam Declaration. In July 1945, President Harry S. Truman and new British Prime Minister Clement Attlee had met at Potsdam and issued a joint statement, which was joined by Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek, demanding Japan’s unconditional surrender. Following the dropping of the two atomic bombs and the Soviet Union’s Declaration of War, and the invasion of Manchuria, Korea, southern Sakhalin Island and the Kuril Islands by the Red Army, the Japanese government, on Aug. 10, indicated it intended to surrender, but attached too many conditions to be acceptable to the Allies and the USSR. However, most people could see

that the end was near and began celebrating. On the morning of Aug. 15, 1945, Japan standard time, the Japanese government broadcast an announcement over Radio Tokyo that, “... acceptance of the Potsdam Proclamation would be coming soon,” and had so notified the U.S., through the offices of the Swiss Embassy. The address by the emperor – whether recorded or not – was unprecedented. The reason that it was recorded was because the government was concerned that some of the right-wing warmongers might assassinate the emperor before he had the opportunity to speak. In fact Major Kenji Hatanaka led a group of more than 1,000 officers in an attempt to steal the recording

and prevent it from being broadcast. After failing to overcome the resistance of the Imperial guards, Hatanaka committed suicide. Most Japanese did not comprehend all of what the emperor said because he spoke in the formal classical Japanese that few understood. In addition, the audio quality of the broadcast was very poor. All combined to leave the Japanese wondering and confused as to what occurred. At the conclusion of the emperor’s speech, an announcer explained that the country was surrendering. In his speech, the Emperor recognized that, “...Despite the best that has been done by everyone – the gallant fighting of the military and naval forces, the diligence and assiduity of Our servants of the State, and the devoted service of Our one hundred million people – the war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan’s advantage, while the general trends of the world have all turned against her interest.” He specifically referred to, “...a new and most cruel bomb, the power of which to do damage is, indeed, incalculable, taking the toll of many innocent lives.” He apologized to Japan’s East Asia Allies. He then announced that it was, “...resolved to pave the way for a grand peace for all the generations to come by enduring the unendurable and suffering what is unsufferable.” At 7 p.m. EDT, on Aug. 14, in Washington, President Truman, announced the communication on national radio. He cautioned, however, that, “...the proclamation of V-J Day must wait upon the formal signing of the surrender terms by Japan.” Nobody waited! A two-day holiday was proclaimed for federal employees. After almost four years of war, the country erupted in celebration. In New York’s Times Square, photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt snapped the iconic photograph of an exuberant sailor kissing a startled nurse. Incredibly, U.S. Navy photojournalist

Victor Jorgensen also captured the same event. But there was a darker side to the announcements. Some Japanese committed suicide at the news. More than 100 defenseless American POWs were murdered. If that wasn’t enough, U.S. sailors rioted in San Francisco, leaving 11 dead and 1,000 injured, with much property damage. On Sept. 2, 1945, in a ceremony, over which Gen. Douglas MacArthur presided, on the battleship USS Missouri, anchored in Tokyo Bay, Japanese officials executed the Instrument of Surrender. Now began the debate as to which date was V-J Day – Aug. 14, Aug. 15

or Sept 2. China celebrates it on Sept. 3. Australia, Korea and The Netherlands recognize Aug. 15. From 1948 to 1975, Sept. 2 was a Federal holiday.

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug 14, 2015) The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board discussed these issues during its meeting Tuesday.

Ticket trouble Play it Safe participants this year were confused by the new ticketing system to get wristbands good for free bus rides, according to City Recreation Manager Al “Hondo” Handy. Handy said the confusion arose because tickets were too similar to the bus tickets participants needed to arrive at the locations where the additional tickets were sold. A user needed to board the bus, and was provided one ticket to get another ticket purchasable at various locations throughout the resort. Many participants, Handy said, simply provided the first ticket and had to be told to return with the other.

Beer festival The commissioners granted permission for the full City Council to review the Shore Craft beer festival tentatively scheduled for Oct. 24, with a rain date of Oct. 25. The event would be the capstone event for the Shore Craft Beer month, already approved in the county. The event would take place at Sunset Park, if approved, and would feature beer tastings and sales, so long as the only consumption of the beverages was limited to the tastings.

Boardwalk playground The Parks and Recreation department was given approval to pursue grant money for a Boardwalk playground to be located adjacent to Division Street. A 30- to 40-foot concrete pad would need to be constructed as well as some kind of “footing system” to secure the playground equipment. Ongoing maintenance due to blowing sand is a concern. The deadline for the grant application is Aug. 19, so the commission granted the department permission to apply for the grant to meet the deadline, with the understanding that the City Council may require them to withdraw the application if they decide the project shouldn’t move forward.

Chamber annual awards By congratulating Al “Hondo” Handy on his Citizen of the Year award, members of the Ocean City Council let slip that the annual awards list had been published. Recipients include: Lifetime Achievement Award – Dr. Leonard Berger of the Clarion Fontainebleau, Business Person of the Year –Steve Green of the Dispatch, Citizen of the Year – Al “Hondo” Handy, Town of Ocean City Young Professional of the Year – Matt James, Carousel Hotel Group Chamber, Volunteer of the Year – Jeff McArthur, OC Seasonal Workforce Committee Non-Profit of the Year – OCDC Ocean City Development Corporation.

Coastal Hospice to participate in Medicare model

(Aug. 14, 2015) Starting in January, Coastal Hospice will begin participation in a pilot Medicare model, the Medicare Care Choices Model, designed to improve care for people with cancer, HIV/AIDS, COPD or congestive heart failure. Coastal Hospice will call this model “Coastal Care Choices.” Under this model, Medicare patients with these diagnoses will receive the supportive care typically provided by hospice and continue treatments to cure their disease at the same time. “Patients no longer have to make the difficult choice between treating their disease and receiving comfort care,” Alane Capen, president of Coastal Hospice, said. “Support is a phone call away 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients can now stay in their own homes, determine their own health care goals and improve their quality of life.” On July 20, Health and Human Services Secretary, Sylvia M. Burwell, announced Coastal Hospice’s selection for this model. HHS selected only 140 hospices across the country to test the model for a period of five years and expects as many as 150,000 eligible Medicare beneficiaries will benefit from the flexibility of care. The model is part of a larger effort at HHS to transform the nation’s health care system to deliver better care, spend taxpayer dollars in a smarter way, and put patients in the center of their care. To qualify for the Coastal Care Choices model, individuals must be diagnosed with cancer, HIV/AIDS, COPD or congestive heart failure. They must be living in a traditional home, not a nursing home or assisted living facility. Patients must be enrolled in Medicare Parts A, B and D and meet hospice eligibility requirements under the Medicare or Medicaid Hospice Benefit. They must not have elected the Medicare or Medicaid Hospice Benefit within the last 30 days prior to their participation in the new program. There are a few additional restrictions that apply. The patient’s primary care physician will make the initial recommendation to the program and remain active in directing treatment and care. The care provided will be specialized, focusing on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of illness. The goal is to improve quality of life and provide greater coordination of services among all providers involved in the person’s care. Coastal Care Choices will take a team approach that becomes an extra layer of support. Once the patient is enrolled in the program, a team of registered nurses, social workers and chaplains are available to help. Patients can leave the Coastal Care Choices program or can enter full hospice care at any time. Founded in 1980, Coastal Hospice is a nonprofit health care organization that cares for individuals facing life-limiting conditions but who want to remain as active and engaged as possible.

Record payout, participation for Poor Girls Open

BRIAN GILLILAND/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Cheryl McLeskey of Virginia Beach poses at Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street with the 94-pound white marlin she landed last Wednesday while fishing on Backlash. McLeskey and her teammates won $1,176,113.

Happy birthdays for captain, angler Capt. Steve Richardson and Cheryl McLeskey celebrate by winning WMO, $1.17M By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 14, 2015) There are numerous ways to celebrate a birthday. Cheryl McLeskey and Steve Richardson received a check for more than $1 million for theirs. Last Wednesday, McLeskey reeled in the first place white marlin during the 42nd annual White Marlin Open aboard Richardson’s boat, the Backlash. The fish, weighing 94 pounds–the third largest in tournament history– was worth $1,176,113. McLeskey, of Virginia Beach, is the first woman to land the winning white marlin in the Open. This was also her first time participating in the tournament. “It’s such an indescribable feeling,” she said. “The number of women participating is gaining steam. Hopefully it will open up op-

portunities for more women.” The marlin took the bait around 2:50 p.m. and by 3 p.m. it was on the boat. “It came up to the bait and I just ran to the line…The adrenaline was incredible,” McLeskey said. “We knew when we saw it jump it could be a potential winner…The second we got it in the boat we came right in [to the scale]. We were so excited we couldn’t get there fast enough.” Richardson, of Virginia Beach, said he had no doubt it would meet the White Marlin Open weight and length minimums of 70 pounds and 67 inches. The boat registration number for the tournament was 87. Richardson’s birthday is Aug. 7 (8/7) and McLeskey’s is Aug. 8 (8/8), so they hoped it would weigh 87 pounds. “When I was first told the boat number I immediately had a good feeling,” McLeskey said. The boat arrived last Wednesday at Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street with McLeskey’s white on board. As the numbers on the scale climbed, WMO organizers, dock staff, spectators and

especially the Backlash crew, watched in anticipation. When it stopped at 94 pounds, everyone cheered while the Backlash crew celebrated. “We were not expecting anything over 90 pounds,” McLeskey said. “I feel as though there was a divine intervention.” Her husband, Wayne, a legend in Virginia Beach sports fishing, introduced her to fishing in 1992, and she has been at it since. He passed away three and a half years ago, and Cheryl said she “felt his spirit there.” The Backlash crew was presented with their paycheck last Saturday, Aug. 8, on McLeskey’s birthday. “It will be the most memorable birthday ever,” she said. “It felt like winning the Super Bowl of sports fishing… I’m so blessed and honored to fish with the legend, Capt. Richardson and my cousin, Rachel [Davanzo]. I also want to pay tribute to the Virginia Beach Fishing Center in honor of my husband, Wayne McLeskey.” “It was a good 60th birthday present.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Aug. 14, 2015) Thursday was the first fishing day of the 22nd annual Capt. Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open and female anglers will have two more days, today and Saturday, to compete for cash prizes. As of Thursday morning, a record 135 boats carrying more than 630 lady anglers have entered this year’s competition, although there is still time to register. Teams can sign up through Saturday, but are not eligible for the added entry-level calcuttas. The entry fee is $450 per boat for up to three anglers. Additional anglers may be added at $50 each, with a maximum of six total per boat. Teams will fish one of the three tournament days. Weigh-ins will take place from 4-7:30 p.m. at Bahia Marina, 22nd Street, bayside. Tournament co-Director Earl Conley said women enjoy fishing in the tournament because it benefits a worthy cause. Proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society and earmarked for breast cancer research and program development, under the “Pink Ribbon Classic at the Beach Series” — an assortment of local activities to raise breast cancer awareness while garnering money for the organization. “It serves a great purpose and the ladies love it. They really get into it,” Conley said last week. Many women make it a tradition to fish annually, including cancer survivors. Although it is a competition, there is camaraderie among the lady anglers. 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 heaviest tuna and dolphin will also win cash prizes. There are added entry levels for billfish releases, tuna and dolphin. Girls 16 and younger may compete in the junior angler division. Two new calcuttas, or side wagers, were added in 2015. This is the first year a wahoo calcutta has been included. It cost $150 to enter, and prize money will be awarded for first through third place. Seventy boats are participating in the calcutta. “The last several years we saw a few wahoos so we added a wahoo category,” Conley said. A $1,000 billfish release winnerSee POOR Page 42

Catching first place white marlin ‘indescribable feeling’ Continued from Page 39 It was a happy birthday,” said Richardson, who has participated in the WMO more than 20 times since 1981. The only other qualifying white marlin came to the scale last Friday, the final day of the tournament. The Lights Out crew cheered and celebrated at the dock after Bill Haugland’s (Coral Gables, Fla.) fish weighed in at 79 pounds. The Lights Out team registered for the new Level WM (White Marlin Winner Take All) added entry-level calcutta, which cost $10,000 to enter. Since the Backlash crew did not sign up for Level WM, the calcutta money went to the group aboard Lights Out. Ninety-two boats participated in the Level WM, bringing the pot to $920,000 (gross). The Lights Out crew won $1,006,247. It was the first time in tournament history the top two whites each earned more than $1 million. Backlash did register for Level E Winner Take All for white marlin, which cost $5,000 to enter. One hundred seventy-seven boats participated in the calcutta. The pot totaled $885,000 (gross). McLeskey said she plans to donate some winnings to several charity organizations. Her father, Alfred Palacios, passed away in May at the age of 97. She will donate in his name to the Seguna Educational Initiative for Children Catholic Diocese of Richmond. Its mission is to provide access to quality Catholic school education for all Latino children in the Diocese. McLeskey also plans to donate some of her winnings to Honor and Remember, Inc., which presents a special flag to the families of servicemen and women who were killed in the line of duty, as well as Virginia Beach-based Stop Abuse, which helps prevent child abuse through education, detection and referral. •Blue marlin: The only qualifying blue marlin brought to the scale was a 551-pounder. Larry Hesse Jr. of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. landed the fish aboard Goin In Deep last Monday. Hesse and his teammates were presented a check for $778,728. A

majority of that money came from the Level F Heaviest Blue Marlin Winner Take All, which 173 boats registered for. The cost to enter was $2,000. •Tuna: There were some changes on the leader board late in the week. The Miss Annie crew took over first place on the final day with Mark Donahue’s (Jupiter, Fla.) 200.5-pound big eye. The team was awarded $399,209. That fish pushed Logan Pusey’s (Girdletree, Md.) 177-pound big eye into second place. The fish, which he caught on the fist day of the tournament aboard Rumor Has It, brought in $174,495. Beach Haven, N.J. angler Dante Soriente moved into third place with the 176-pound big eye he landed while See RECORD Page 42

A total of 307 boats entered into the tournament and a record $3,916,840 was awarded to White Marlin Open winners. The last time 300 or more boats registered for the Open was 2008 when about $2.3 million was paid out.

for the top fish. Jim Motsko, founder and co-director of the WMO, said the more than $1 million jump in prize money this year was due to several factors – an increase in participation and the new Level WM (White Marlin Winner Take All) and Level DT (heaviest Daily Tuna) added entry-level calcuttas. The cost to enter the white marlin category was $10,000. Before the tournament, Motsko said he thought between 15-30 boats would register for the calcutta and “it was a whole lot more than that” as 92 participated. “It shocked me,” he said. One hundred forty-six boats signed up for the daily tuna calcutta which cost

$1,000 to participate in. “Overall [the tournament] went very well. We had a huge payout, a huge fish and an increase in boats,” Motsko said. “That overshadowed some of the obstacles.” One of those obstacles was the White Marlin Open website being hacked. The weather also proved to be a bit rough offshore, especially on the final day. Motsko announced earlier this week that the White Marlin Open will be featured on Showtime’s “60 Minutes Sports,” Sept. 7 at 10 p.m. “We’re very excited,” Motsko said. “It should be good for Ocean City also.” The 2016 White Marlin Open is scheduled for Aug. 8-12.

Poor Girls Open to benefit ACS, breast cancer research Continued from Page 39 take-all calcutta was also added. Fifty-six boats signed up for the calcutta. “Hopefully, [the billfish bite] will get red hot for the tournament,” Conley said. “The tuna bite is hit or miss. There are some big eyes out there.” The ladies will be competing for more than $174,000–a tournament record. “We broke all records this year,” Conley said. Pink Ribbon merchandise will be for sale near the weigh-in scale in the Bahia Marina/Fish Tales parking lot. There will also be a 50/50 raffle going on throughout the weekend. An awards luncheon is scheduled for Sunday at the Marlin Club in West Ocean City. The competition has grown since its inception. Eight boats participated in the first tournament, and in 2014, 96 vessels carried 453 female anglers offshore. A total of $89,770 was paid out to the winners last year. In 2014, tournament organizers and the Harman family presented a check for $65,000 to the American Cancer Society. The total donated by the Harman family through this tournament and other events over the past seven years is more than $500,000. “I want to thank the Harman family for putting on such a great tournament,” Conley said. In 2004, the tournament was renamed to honor the founder of the event, the late Capt. Steve Harman. He and his wife, Pam, started the Poor Girls Open in 1994 to provide women with an opportunity to compete for prizes and money in a ladies-only tournament, and to raise money for local charities. Harman died in February 2004, so organizers thought it was appropriate the tournament be renamed in his memory. The Open is the first event of the Pink Ribbon Classic at the Beach Series. Other events include a card game and mahj party; tennis, mah jongg and golf

tournaments; Jammin’ Out Cancer with live music at Seacrets, Brews for Boobs, scrapbooking, “Pamper for Charity” raffle and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk and run. Most of the events will take place in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pink Ribbon Classic Series was started in 1996 by a group of dedicated volunteers. Last year, more than $335,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society’s fight against breast cancer. Since its inception, the series has raised about $1.5 million for breast cancer research, awareness, programs and services. Some of the local programs and services available in this area include free wigs for patients; the Look Good Feel Better program, which teaches patients how to cope with the cosmetic side-effects of treatment; Reach to Recovery, a one-on-one support visitation program by trained breast cancer survivors for new patients; and Road to Recovery, which gives patients transportation to and from cancer treatments. There is also the Hope Lodge, which provides lodging during treatment; Patient Navigator Program, which helps with the health care system; Cancer Survivors Network and a 24-hour-aday cancer information center. This year, 4,730 women in Maryland will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Across the country that number rises to 231,840, and an estimated 40,290 will die from the disease, according to the ACS.

Ultimate Frisbee tourney in OC this weekend

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) The beach between Somerset and Wicomico Streets along the Boardwalk will play host to Ocean City’s second beach Ultimate Frisbee tournament, the Ocean City Beach Classic, this weekend between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. This five-on-five tournament featuring 16 teams, one quarter of them composed of (mostly) local players, will feature six games concurrently, so there will always be something to see, according to event organizer Alex Jacoski. “Someone will be jumping, someone will be diving or someone will be making a nice precision throw pretty much all the time,” Jacoski said. The sport is growing here and in other beach communities. Two weeks ago Wildwood, N.J. hosted the largest annual championship in the world featuring more than 400 teams, and earlier this year Virginia Beach, Va., hosted the first National Beach Championships. Ocean City’s tournament, Jacoski said, is an attempt to solidify Ocean City and the East Coast as a premier destination for the sport. Last week, the International Olympic Committee fully recognized the sport, paving the way for it to be included in a future Olympic games.

Ultimate Frisbee plays have also been showcased on television during many “play of the week” segments in the past year. The effort to popularize Ocean City Beach Ultimate began last year with the inaugural event, which drew 11 teams, and was won by professional team the BoraAlex Jacoski cay Dragons from the Philippines. The Dragons aren’t defending their title, leaving the favorites as team humiliswag, which placed in both the Wildwood and Virginia Beach Events and features a number of local players, and the Bandits from N.J. “Our biggest priority this year was growth. I want to continue to grow

and develop the sport in this region, and I want to continue to collaborate and help promote local business,” Jacoski said. Two teams have Salisbury roots: the JustDISC League and Iron Islands Ultimate. Another, the Chicken Lickers, draws its team exclusively from Berlin and Ocean City pickup and league games. The biggest challenge to the traditional sports structure presented by Ultimate Frisbee is the possibility of high-level play with co-ed teams. The tournament will be entirely mixed gender, with no fewer than two women on the field per side at any one time. “The thing I love about this game is that it’s fun at every level. You start by just running and throwing with your friends or teammates. It’s simple but

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) The 23rd annual Ocean City Lacrosse Classic kicked off Thursday morning with about 2,500 lacrosse players competing for bragging rights throughout the weekend. The 48 Men’s Elite (18 and older) division teams, 14 Master’s (35 and older) crews, seven Grandmaster’s (45 and older) squads and three Men’s King Neptune (50 and older) teams kicked off the lacrosse action on Thursday at Northside Park on 125th Street and the Northern Worcester County Athletic Complex off Route 113 in Berlin. These teams play all weekend long in both locations with tournaments beginning at 9 a.m. today and continuing into the evening hours. Four teams will also compete in the wheelchair “Rolling Surf” division and play today and Saturday in the Northside Park gym. The Women’s Elite (18 and older) competition will include 20 teams competing today at Fourth Street across from the skate park in Ocean City beginning at 10 a.m. Most championship games will be played Sunday, Aug. 16 with the last one starting around 3 p.m. “Every team plays a minimum of four games to get into the finals,” See MORE Page 44

it grows more complex as you develop,” Jacoski said. Jacoski knows about developing players as he is the strength and conditioning coach, as well as a player, for professional American Ultimate Disc League team the DC Breeze. He is joined by Ocean City local Bryant Dean on both the Breeze and humiliswag rosters. Jacoski and Dean also play in weekly pickup games held at the Worcester County Athletic Center in Berlin on Monday nights, and in Thursday pickup and league games on the beach at the site of the tournament. In the fall, the games will merge to play under the lights at the Athletic Complex under the lights. Games will continue as long as weather permits, and new players are always welcome, Jacoski said.

More than 2,000 lax players converge in OC Continued from Page 43 Tournament Director Bob Musitano said. “It’s a double elimination, which makes it interesting because teams can still get into the championship even if they lose on Thursday.” On Saturday, Aug. 15, the Thompson brothers, a group of professional lacrosse players, are conducting a clinic for third through 12th graders from 9 a.m. until noon at Northside Park. “It’s neat. These guys are pros and

it will be cool for them to hold a free clinic in Ocean City,” Musitano said. The annual lacrosse tournament has grown from five or six teams to more than 100, with spectators able to catch more than 200 actionpacked games throughout the weekend, Musitano added. “It’s turned into quite an event and a reunion for others who played with one another in college or against each other. It’s a way to reconnect, and it’s

amazing to see the skill levels of these guys,” he said. Teams consist of athletes from “all over” with some playing in professional leagues in addition to a “mixmash” of players from places including California, Washington D.C., New York and Maryland. “There will be top names in the sport of lacrosse competing. It’s a celebration of summer ending, and everyone comes down to have a great

time and relive rivalries,” Musitano said. “They are very competitive and everyone wants to win.” Proceeds from the Classic help fund scholarships at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin for student-athletes. Musitano said $7,000 was awarded at Decatur last year, where he is the girls’ varsity head lacrosse coach.

Scott McGiffin and Adam Bielawski with Sea Colony’s Dustin Venables. It is routine for Ocean City and Sea Colony’s beach patrols to compete together since Sea Colony’s Capt. Dave Griffiths is a former sergeant of nearly 30 years with the Ocean City Beach Patrol. The three Ocean City champions are all second-year employees of the town of Ocean City. “We just feel honored to be able to represent Ocean City, Maryland in such a way. This puts us on the map now and we could not ask anything better,” Belrachid said. “I feel honored to have had the opportunity to compete against great athletes and for our team to come out on top. I did it mom and dad,” McGiffin said. Bielawski thanked his teammate stating, “I feel blessed to be able to run in such an amazing team. All the guys had a great mindset. I’m also thankful that Dustin was able to help us in getting that title.” Other members of the team representing the town were Rahym Belrachid, who made it to finals in both the run-swim-run and the highly competitive 400-meter surf swim. Josh Remaniak, a first-year lifeguard, who narrowly missed finals in the surf swim, Joe Keefe and Crew Chief Kelly McGrath who placed eighth in the country in the women’s open in the beach flags event. The competition team was led by chapter president and beach patrol Sergeant Rick Cawthern who placed highly in four age-group events. “All of us train hard for these competitions or whatever Mother Nature throws at us during our working hours. Being here you see the top athletes in the nation competing against each other. It’s a great event to be a part of,” Cawthern said. Also representing the town was Sergeant Jamie Falcon, a fifth year official for the United States Lifesaving Association, and his wife, Lara. Next year, the national competition is slated to take place in California. Ocean City’s competitors volunteer their time and pay for their own transportation to the events. Their lodging is supported by the generosity of Ocean City’s businesses such as the Ocean Pines Beach Club, Anthony’s Liquors, Kirby’s Pub, OC Wasabi and the Fractured Prune on 128th Street.

Tips to save on homeowner’s insurance rates

KARA HALLISSEY/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Owner Dave Isaacs opened TSS: The Supplement Shop in the Decatur Business Center on Route 611 in West Ocean City more than two weeks ago, offering a variety of products.

Local bodybuilder opens supplement shop in West OC

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) TSS: The Supplement Shop opened up in the Decatur Business Center on Route 611 in West Ocean City more than two weeks ago and offers a variety of products. “Our prices are the same you will find online without paying the shipping and we strategically pick out supplements that are the best on the market,” Owner Dave Isaacs said. The year-around business has protein powders, gainers, vitamins, proteins, weight loss and pre-workout supplements in addition to workout gear including shirts that will be offered in the near future. Recently, Isaacs moved to Ocean City from Texas and realized the area had a need for a discount nutrition shop to compliment gyms, yoga studios and health advocates. His friend owns more than nine supplement shops, Rocks Discount Vitamins, in the Lone Star state, which gave him the idea. Isaacs and his wife are from a bodybuilding background and are familiar with the supplements they stock.

The year-around business has protein powders, gainers, vitamins, proteins, weight loss and preworkout supplements in addition to workout gear including shirts that will be offered in the near future.

“We know how supplements work and will provide dietary consulting to curious customers,” Isaacs said. Hiring employees who are informed on products in the store and have expertise in the field are important to the Isaacs.

TSS: the Supplement Shop is located on Stephen Decatur Highway (Rt. 611) inside the Decatur Business Center. They are open, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Homeowner’s insurance is a requirement if your home is mortgaged, and it covers the structure of your home and your personal property, as well as your personal legal responsibility (or liability) for injuries to others or their property while they are on your property. The majority of homeowners own their homes with a fixed rate mortgage, and they count on a fixed monthly mortgage payment. But, two things can cause that payment to change: taxes and insurance. In the case of homeowner’s insurance, many homeowners see an increase in their monthly payments due to annual policy renewals being increased enough to cause their monthly mortgage payment to rise. Here are three helpful hints that could help you save on your homeowner’s insurance: • Talk to your agent once a year— It’s a good practice to call your insurance agent each year to review your policies. As your annual renewal bill shows, insurance companies increase their rates annually. But, competition is still fierce for new customers. It’s worth the effort to see if switching companies can help you save. And, look into bundling your homeowner’s insurance policy with your auto insurance. This alone can save you approximately 5-15 percent in premiums. • You may have too much coverage— Check your policy to make sure you aren’t carrying more replacement coverage than you need. Some policies contain an “inflation protection” provision that automatically increases your coverage annually, but due to a decline in construction costs, you may not need as much coverage as you are currently paying for. Or, there may be options to increase your deductible amount that can help save hundreds annually. Speak with your insurance agent to see if you can adjust your coverage amount to a more realistic number, and the savings can add up to as much as 10 percent off your premium. • Small claims can cost you in the long run— “Filing a claim for every leak or broken window can cost you in the long See DEFEND Page 58

Defend against high premiums on mandated policy Continued from Page 57 runâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;raising premiums as much as 10-15 percent,â&#x20AC;? said Amy Hill, an insurance agent with Associated Insurance Centers, Inc, in West Ocean City. By switching your policy to a higher deductible, and banking the savings to cover the cost of minor repairs, you can save up to 25 percent off premiums in some cases. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good idea to discuss any claim with your agent before contacting your insurance carrier directlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they have the knowledge to help you decide whether the claim is worth filing. Also keep in mind, just as a lender will pull a credit report before approving you for a loan, insurers will research your past claim history with national databases such as Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE). And, just as a credit report may contain errors that will lower your credit score, these insurance databases can contain errors as well that can negatively affect your pricing. You can receive your insurance report free during each 12-month period by visiting personalreports.lexisnexis.com.

Picket fences pop up all over resort thanks to OCDC (Aug. 14, 2015) The Ocean City Development Corporation (OCDC) has a fence program to promote front yard picket fences along streets in the designated redevelopment area between the Inlet and 17th Street. The most recent project completed under this program is at 1211 Baltimore Avenue at the Ocean Terrace Family Vacation Apartments. The OCDC provides limited financial assistance for downtown property owners to install these attractive fences. They are a low-cost method to add value to the properties and improve the pedestrian way along public sidewalks. Consistent with its downtown design standards, front yard fences provide a special detail in a traditional style. For parking lots, fencing can help provide an effective method to screen automobiles from the adjacent

sidewalk and protect landscaping. For more information about the OCDC Streetside Fence Program contact the OCDC at 410-289-7739. Funding from the OCDC Streetside Fence Program comes from its fundraising proceeds from its annual golf tournament.

cate meighan inside going out nother busy week down in Ocean City. If you were in town last week then you are well aware of how the White Marlin Open (a high stakes billfish tournament) pretty much dominated everything. Even if you weren’t directly involved then you were somehow affected by the thousands of people that were gathered here in the hopes of sharing in the million-dollar jackpot. Traffic was insane and it has been a relief to see things return to the typical resort-town busy as opposed to six-mile back ups, right? If you are vacationing with us this week then I can assure you that there is still plenty of fun to be had and tons to do here in OC and that does still include fishing. Capt. Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open is running from now through Saturday, Aug. 15. It’s a ladies-only tournament that benefits breast cancer research. The competition is taking place at the Bahia Marina on 21st Street and the bay. More information is available at www.bahiamarina.com. Weigh-ins will take place today and Saturday from 4-7:30 p.m. If you’re looking for something to do with your family there is a free circus at Jolly Roger Amusement Park on 30th Street and Coastal Highway that features The Flying Wallendas. Show times are at 5 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Check out www.jollyrogerpark.com for more information. Dickens on the Road Magic Show is performed daily at the Holiday Inn Oceanfront on 67th Street. Tickets for the 7 p.m. daily show are $14 and available at www.ocmagicshow.com. Sunday is one of the most fun days in OC and on Aug.16 you can enjoy a Grease Sing-a-Long presented by Turner Classic Movies at the Fox Sun & Surf Cinema on 143rd Street and Coastal Highway. The fun starts at 2 p.m. and you can make reservations online at www.foxshowtimes.com. Sundaes in the Park and fireworks is a great way to wrap up a fun weekend and on Sunday, Aug. 16, head on over to Northside Park See CATE Page 62

KARA HALLISSEY/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Professional ice skaters, from left, Megan Marschall, Michael Solonoski, Julianne DiMura, Shaun Rogers and Rachel Jones, take a break from warm ups on Monday afternoon to pose for a picture. Check out The Next Ice Age performances nightly at 6:30 p.m., until Aug. 20, at the Carousel Hotel on 118th Street.

Next Ice Age shows wrap Aug. 20 Final week to watch former competitive figure skaters perform at Carousel Hotel

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) This is the last week audiences will have the chance to watch five former competitive figure skaters during The Next Ice Age performances at the Carousel Hotel on 118th Street. The remaining seven shows take place at 6:30 p.m. nightly, run about 30 minutes and provide a free activity for families to enjoy together. In its 15th year, the show is a favorite among Ocean City residents and visitors. “The unique proximity to the ocean… there are not many ice rinks near the beach and the ocean makes it special,” said Nathan Birch, The Next Ice Age executive director. “It’s a free thing to do and exposes the family to a winter sport when they are not expecting it. The show may even inspire people to try skating afterwards at the Carousel.” The performances include a storyline about a family and every genre of

music will be heard during the shows, Birch said. This year, Megan Marschall, 23, Julianne DiMura, 23, Rachel Jones, 21, Shaun Rogers, 29, and Michael Solonoski, 31, have astonished audiences on the ice since June. “The show has a feel-good vibe and I love performing in Ocean City because it’s so exhilarating performing for live audiences every night,” Marschall said. “We have a familyfriendly show where audience members will experience beautifully-trained professional athletes performing fantastic tricks, skating and original choreography filled with interesting story lines.” “It’s the best show in Ocean City because it’s free and amazing,” Solonoski added. “High-caliber and high-class, professional skating at the beach, who knew?” During the group’s last performance on Aug. 20, performers will have a “special surprise” for children in the audience at the end of the show. “Overall our summer performances have been fun and we have been getting enthusiastic crowds that creates an enjoyable performance environment for the skaters,” Marschall

said. “The cast had a memorable time performing on the Fourth of July because of how receptive and loud the audience was cheering at the show.” Featured songs include “Under Pressure” by Queen, “Love Runs Out” from One Republic and Jean Paul Young’s “Love is in the Air.” Since spectators are standing during the show and their proximity to the action on the rink is within a few feet, performers are constantly interacting with the crowd. “You are really close, with just a rail separating audiences and they get drawn in,” Birch said. “Everyone is invited and encouraged to meet the cast to get autographs and take photos after the show.” Birch said he has met a fair amount of skaters who told him they got their start after seeing a performance. “I am happy to be associated with something so positive and heartwarming,” Birch said. “Performing in skating shows for a living is honestly a dream job,” Marschall said. “Skating is something we fell in love with when we were little kids, and we are so grateful to have careers we trained in our whole lives See PERFORMANCES Page 62

The fun begins at 6 p.m. on the porch of The Atlantic Hotel on Main Street. More information for this event is available at www.berlinmainstreet.com. I always say that KY West on 54th Street is a bit of a hidden gem here in Ocean City, mainly because on the outside it looks like a fun, beachy little place but once you get inside you realize that you could easily be standing in a big city restaurant. Lucky for all of us, KY West looks the NYC part but offers up that Eastern Shore atmosphere that we all love here. I grabbed a few minutes of manager Mark Wagner’s time this week to hear about all that is happening at his favorite spot in OC. Happy hour is still 4-7 p.m. daily with various food and drink specials only available at the bar. Thursday nights now feature a deck party from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. with $2 domestic bottles and $3 Fireball. KY West also has a late night happy hour Sunday through Thursday that runs from 10 p.m. to midnight. Wagner can’t say enough great things about the menu and I can vouch for the fact that KY West’s desserts are

some of the best in OC. Taphouse Bar & Grille on Fourth Street and the Boardwalk opened its doors a few months back, just in time for the busy season and according to Mike Pipitone, manager/bartender, business has been great. Happy hour runs from 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday (at the bar only) and you can also grab $8 wings or steamed shrimp for $9. Drink specials include $1 off craft beer and $4 crushes during happy hour as well. This is definitely a great spot to escape the sweltering beach heat for awhile and the staff is super friendly which is always a bonus. Tokyo Seafood Buffet on 131st Street and Coastal Highway has one of the very best all-you-can-eat buffet’s in Ocean City. Its early bird special knocks $3 off your meal up until 4 p.m. and the $5 appetizers include chicken wings, stuffed mushrooms and General Tso’s chicken. Duffy’s Tavern on 130th Street in the Montego Bay Shopping Center is serving breakfast every day from 9 a.m. to noon and there are some great food and drink specials that run all day long.

That features three courses and is served with a complimentary glass of wine for just $30 between 5-6 p.m. Check out www.julesoc.com.

cate meighan Guests are guaranteed to have a fun evening and the doors open for this event at 6:30 p.m. Every Saturday and Sunday Dunes features live entertainment on their oceanfront deck. Visit www.dunesmanor.com for more information and pricing on all events. Purple Moose Saloon, located between Caroline and Talbot Streets on the Boardwalk, opens daily at 11 a.m. The secret to Purple Moose’s success is at least in part because it offers something different. Hard rock tribute bands are featured and on most Thursday nights you can catch a cool live show. Purple Moose also caters to all of OCMD’s international visitors by making Tuesday Euro Night, with great drink specials. Check out www.purplemoosesaloon.com for more information on its upcoming lineup. Buddy’s Crabs & Ribs at 221 Wicomico Street and the bay is a friendly place to hang out while watching the sunset. Buddy’s also brings you happy hour from open to close every day. Natty Bo’s For O’s and Natural Lights are only $1.79 and crushes are $5.50. Calamari, steamed clams and Chincoteague oysters are all under $6.50 and all crab are steamed to order. Text Occrabs to 95577 to receive a free cream of crab soup on your next visit to Buddy’s. Also, its Summer Crab Race Series to benefit the Believe in Tomorrow National Children’s Foundation and the Children’s House by the Sea is a popular weekly event. Every Sunday evening through September, Buddy’s OC will host an evening of live entertainment, drink/food specials, silent auctions, and at 8:30, the highlight of the evening, Buddy’s OC Hard Shell Crab Race. All auctions and Crab Race proceeds will be donated to the Children’s House by the Sea in Ocean City. If you’re looking for a great breakfast spot then you might want to consider crossing the bridge and heading into West OC. TC Diner, located at 12744 Ocean Gateway, has one of the best breakfasts in the area. The portions are hearty, the coffee is bottomless and the atmosphere is always friendly. TC’s experienced waitresses really hustle and if you are a local resident be sure that you grab a discount card so that you can save 10 percent every time you stop in. Also, TC Diner is running a lunch special that gets you half off of a lunch entree, with the purchase of another entree and two drinks. Speaking of diners, the Decatur Diner on Route 611 in West OC is by far one of the best in the area. It specializes in pancakes and Belgian waffles but don’t let the fact that breakfast is served all day fool you, the burgers and chicken tenders are equally great. If you manage to finish the Decatur Diner’s infamous Pipeline Burger then you’ll end up

on the wall of fame. Decatur Diner is also conveniently located right on the way to the very popular Assateague Island. If you call ahead then you can easily pick up food to take out to the beach with you. That Bacon Place, located at 12614 Ocean Gateway in West Ocean City, opened its doors in May and already features one of the most delicious takeout menu’s around. The sausage sandwiches are delicious and let’s face it, everything is better with bacon, isn’t it? Plus the prices are great and only the freshest ingredients are used. The Greene Turtle, on Route 611 in West Ocean City, may have been voted OC’s Best Burgers but it also has some of the best ribs, fresh salads and steak around. Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4-7

p.m. and there are nightly drink specials. The environment is friendly and several nights a week Greene Turtle West offers up live entertainment from local artists. Piaza, located at 11436 Samuel Bowen Blvd. in front of the Walmart on Route 50, is a convenient stop to make if you are on the go and need a quick, healthy meal. Piaza’s popular pizzas are made to order and cooked right in front of you in a 1,000-degree brick oven in just three minutes flat. While the pizza is obviously the big draw, the gourmet salads and pesto Piadas are also really delicious. Check out www.piazafresh.com for the full menu. While Ocean City seems to offer up just about everything under the sun to keep vacationers happily entertained, I’d really suggest that you

take a few hours to explore a historic little town called Berlin. Just a few minutes drive from OC, Berlin was officially named “America’s Coolest Small Town” in 2014 and it is also considered the antique capitol of the Eastern Shore. Main Street is alive with specialty shops and Berlin also features some of the best restaurants around, all within walking distance of each other. Check out www.berlinmainstreet.com for more information on this great little town and all that it has to offer. That’s just a little bit of what’s hot and happening here in OCMD this coming week. If you have an event coming up or know of something that you think deserves a mention then email me at cate@oceancitytoday.net.

The Maryland Chapter of Contractors for a Cause held its second annual Golf Classic at Ocean City Golf Club in Berlin last Friday. Ninety-six golfers participated, helping to raise $15,325.

More than $15K raised during event Contractors for a Cause provides free home repairs, maintenance, construction

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Contractors for a Cause is a non-profit organization helping disadvantaged community members in Delaware and Maryland through donations, volunteering and fundraising. It is dedicated to providing free services and professional advice in the field of home construction, maintenance and repair. These contractors hosts annual events to raise money for local organ-

izations including Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services and gives out scholarships to help young adults pursuing a career in the industry. Last Friday, the Maryland Chapter of Contractors for a Cause held its second annual Golf Classic at Ocean City Golf Club in Berlin. Ninety-six golfers participated, helping to raise $15,325. Close to $15,000 was generated during the inaugural tournament last year and the group installed five new HVAC units at Diakonia, a residence in West Ocean City that provides emergency and transitional housing, food services, counseling and assistance to its guests, using the money.

Josh Martin, a member of Contractors for a Cause in Maryland, helped facilitate its first Maryland Legacy Scholarship Program. A $1,500 scholarship was awarded to a 2015 Stephen Decatur High School graduate interested in the building industry including contracting, architect work or engineering. Members have provided handicap access to a house in Berlin, worked on numerous projects at Diakonia and fixed drywall as well as completed structural repairs on a house in Bishopville. “Since we are professional contractors, a project costs less and we can stretch the dollar with help from See CONTRACTORS Page 72

Contractors for a Cause assists Del. and Md. residents Continued from Page 67 donations through suppliers,” Martin said. Contractors for a Cause was cofounded by Jim Kyger and a few others in Delaware 15 years ago. Success with the first chapter led to Kyger establishing a branch closer to his Bishopville businesses: All States Construction and Masterjack. Maryland’s Contractors for a Cause was established more than three years ago. “The Maryland chapter has been most helpful to Diakonia and we have put a lot of time and effort into projects for them,” Martin said. The non-profit organization will help anyone in the area who needs assistance, including a family in Dorchester County with a member suffering from ALS. Contractors finished drywall in a bathroom, installed cabinets and flooring in the kitchen and even built a handicap ramp. Golfers will have another chance to participate in a Contractors for a Cause Golf Classic on Oct. 9 at Cripple Creek Golf and Country Club in Dagsboro, Del. For registration and sponsorship information, contact JoAnn Pullin at jpullin@mikenbuilders.com or call 302-537-4444.

(Aug. 14, 2015) Sunday morning was a typical day at the Ocean City inlet. Fishermen cast their lines from the rock jetty, a group of plein air artists painted the scene and lifeguards were just arriving at the beach, but a life-or-death emergency was occurring offshore. A boogie boarder, caught in the rushing current of the Ocean City inlet and unable to fight it, was being swept out to sea. Two artists participating in the annual “Artists Paint OC” plein air event saw the emergency unfolding. Artist David Simpson of West Ocean City notified the Ocean City Beach Patrol of the emergency, initiating the rescue. Artist George Kalwa of Baltimore and Ocean City knew he had witnessed a remarkable moment and made it the focus of his painting. Simpson, who often surfs nears the inlet and knows the waters well, was watching an artist paint near the jetty when he saw the struggling boarder. He recognized the situation as dangerous and quickly notified the Ocean City Beach Patrol, which was not yet on duty. “The lifeguards weren’t in their chairs yet, but I saw Lauren Reck, a lifeguard I knew, sitting in her car waiting to go to work,” Simpson said. “I told her what was happening. She dropped her coffee and book, blew her

whistle and went right into action.” According to Ocean City Beach Patrol Crew Chief Kevin Johnson, who was also parked at the inlet lot before going on duty, heard Reck’s multiple whistle blasts, indicating she needed backup, and radioed requesting Coast Guard assistance. Reck and Johnson entered the water and stayed with the boarder, who was washed out to sea “at least a half a mile,” Simpson said. “They risked their own lives to save him.” A Coast Guard boat pulled the boarder and lifeguards to safety within 30 minutes. During the rescue, Kalwa, one of 34 artists participating in a two-hour Quick Draw contest in the area, recorded the event. He was already set up and painting at the north jetty when he saw the rescue first hand. “The tide was screaming through the inlet,” Kalwa said. “I was in the right place at the right time. The rescue was perfect for me because I can paint so fast.” Kalwa has experience painting quickly. He is a former courtroom illustrator who worked in Baltimore and Washington D.C. capturing the action in many high-profile trials, including Oliver North’s. See PAINTER Page 79

City. The judge, Ann Coates of Bishop’s Stock Gallery in Snow Hill, said the painting of the rescue deserved an award. “It was extraordinary that the artist was there to witness this event and capture it so immediately on canvas,” she said. Kristin Joson, Ocean City Beach Patrol public education coordinator, said the swimmer was lucky to have been spotted by the artist and rescued without serious injury. The lifeguards made more than 70 rescues on Sunday due to the heavy rip currents. “We were not on duty at the time, and the outcome could have been horrible,” she said. “That’s why we have the motto, ‘Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguards are in the stand.’”

By Kristin Joson Contributing Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) The beach may seem like a great place to relax and enjoy alcoholic beverages, however, it is both illegal and unsafe to do so. Compounded by the heat, the dehydrating and disorienting effects of alcohol and impaired judgment, you can understand why Ocean City does not allow alcohol on its beaches. Alcohol depletes your body of the vital fluids it needs to keep you up and running throughout the day, and it can also give

swimmers a false sense of confidence when it comes to ocean swimming. Almost every guard has a story about rescuing a swimmer who drank too much alcohol. A person who has a healthy understanding of the ocean and their own swimming ability might not usually head out very far, but after a few drinks they might find themselves feeling braver. They take risks they usually would not and can end up hurting themselves in any number of ways, from riding a wave into the shallow water and injuring themselves or swimming out farther than they should. Years ago, a young man who was in town celebrating his high school graduation had one too many drinks and took a headfirst dive into two inches of water. He is now paralyzed from the neck down. Just last summer, a graduating senior with weak swimming skills entered the ocean against his friend’s advice after consuming a large quantity of rum and drowned. Over time, it has become clear that many diving related accidents and most of the heat related illness have a direct correlation to alcohol consumption. And even more interesting, when it comes to heat emergencies, the alcohol consumption may have been more than 12 hours before the incident. We know that from a safety perspective “alcohol and water don’t mix.” Many of our more serious incidents over the years have involved intoxicated beach patrons that do things after drinking that they would never do if sober. The sad fact is, that many lives have been altered or affected in a permanent way by alcohol related incidents or injuries both in the water and on the streets, highways and crosswalks of Ocean City. Most of our pedestrian accidents,

several of which are fatal each year, involve alcohol for either the driver or the pedestrian who stepped into the path of the oncoming vehicle. Not only is the life of the victim of a paralyzing injury or accident affected, but so are the lives of the family members who are often left caring for that individual following the injury. Another issue with intoxicated “swimmers” is that reaction time and physical ability are diminished and often lead to the person finding themselves in trouble in the water and in need of help. If this occurs between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. they will be lucky enough to be rescued by a Surf Rescue Technican, although following the rescue these individuals do not do very well and are often transported to a medical facility for further evaluation (we had several the past few summers). Although we do a very good job of keeping these people safe while we are on duty regardless of how reckless they are, we unfortunately respond to several offduty “swimmer in distress” calls each season, some of which are fatal and al-

most all are alcohol related. If you’re going to drink, don’t swim and take a bus or cab to get home safe. In addition to Maryland’s drinking laws, you might not be aware that Ocean City has its own laws and ordinances. Those that relate to alcohol are: • Public Consumption of Alcohol has been reclassified (2012) as a criminal offense and may lead to your arrest. • Consuming alcohol in public by anyone is prohibited • Carrying an open container of alcohol is a violation. This includes the beach areas, sidewalks and the Boardwalk. • Using false identification to obtain alcohol is a criminal offense that can result in a fine and/or loss of license. Police officers in plain clothes help enforce this law. If your beverage happens to be in a glass container you are also guilty of violating an additional ordinance. You might be interested to know that the law is specific about the conSee ALCOHOL Page 81

ON GUARD

‘Alcohol and water don’t mix,’ says Ocean City Beach Patrol Continued from Page 80 sumption of alcohol and has nothing to do with the container it is in (except that glass is also prohibited, which has become an increasing issue this season with broken glass as a hazard to bare feet) although many people wrongly believe that pouring it in a cup makes it acceptable, which is not true. Some beach patrons know the law, but choose to disobey and take their alcohol to the beach and then attempt to hide the behavior from the beach patrol. This makes the job of the Surf Rescue Technician (lifeguard) on duty, who is responsible to monitor and enforce all activities on the beach as well as in the water much more challenging. To some it appears as a game, to see if they can conceal their illegal activity from the beach patrol while the SRT attempts to perform their job and enforce all of Ocean City laws and ordinances. The result is that your SRT has to divide their responsibilities between protecting people in the water and pleading with “adults” to follow the rules. The beach patrol and your SRT work very hard to enforce the laws and ordinances of the Town of Ocean City. But we need your help! Please do your

part and obey the laws and listen to the SRT and keep the alcohol off the beach. Violation of these laws is a criminal offense and may lead to arrest and will absolutely require another trip to Ocean City, but this time for a court date. We hope you will have a wonderful time on your vacation in Ocean City, but we also want you to remember to drink when and where it is safe and legal to do so. And always remember “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand!”

‘Float for the Coast’ rally slated for Aug. 14 Speakers include Margo Pellegrino, David Helvarg of Blue Frontier Campaign

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Assateague Coastal Trust is partnering with local environmental groups to promote and support clean water with a “Float for the Coast” rally, beginning at Fish Tales on 22nd Street, bayside, Friday, Aug. 14. The event celebrates water quality protections put into place to keep Maryland’s Coastal Bays clean in addition to educating and raising awareness on current threats to fragile, coastal waters in the area. “On a local level, this is an important time for our coast with the threat of offshore drilling looming in the mid-Atlantic,” said Steve Farr, developmental director for Assateague Coastal Trust. “Float for the Coast is an opportunity for locals to join others up and down the East Coast in saying they don’t want oil rigs off Ocean City and Assateague’s coast, as well as show support for other waterways facing a number of other threats across the state.” There has been an outpouring of opposition from Florida to Maine concerning a pending federal pro-

posal that would allow offshore oil The hour-long rally will feature drilling and gas exploration in the several speakers including David Helmid- and south-Atlantic regions, he varg and Margo Pellegrino with Blue added.

By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (Aug. 14, 2015) Morning silence is pleasantly interrupted by the cooing of gentle doves. Baby Doll is snuggled up next to me; her constant purring is a comforting accompaniment to what I hope will be a pleasant day. Time discovers truth; and on that note, I must rise and walk the path of daily occurrence. Summer is a whirlwind of passing thoughts and moments to be, but soon this will be a remembrance in a town that sleeps the wintry months away. Contrast in seasons opens the door of change. The rhythm of life takes many turns and should not be presumed in generality. Choices are predicated by options

which are reduced and determined by details. A chef has a number of possibilities and specifics are a must if success is to flourish. The tiniest factor can have huge consequences. This culinary point of view may seem trivial, but in reality can stimulate virtuosity. Lemon mousse is light, refreshing and perfect for the steamy months of summer. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delectable and elegant flavor actually makes it a popular choice year-round. Lemon mousse is simple to make but creating a luscious lemon mousse is another subject. Let us review the detailed process of particulars. Should one consider regular or Meyer lemons? Meyer lemons were first introduced to the United States from China in the early 20th century by Frank Meyer, from whom they also got their name. This sweet winter citrus is thought to be a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin orange. Meyer lemons are smaller and more round than the traditional lemons. They are also moderately acidic, much sweeter, and their rinds have a more complex scent. Meyer lemons are in season from December through May. However, they can be purchase online year-round, but they are pricey. The actual mousse itself is the next issue. Fluffy egg whites, whipped cream and cream cheese are the fundamental components of a mousse. Exact ratios and ingredients are up to the individual chef. Whipped egg whites will give you the frothiest texture. Cream cheese will add texture to a basic mousse. Purpose intended influences selections and add prefer-

Lemon Mousse Mousse 3 extra-large whole eggs 3 extra-large eggs, separated 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons lemon zest 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

kosher salt to taste 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup bottled lemon curd, room temperature 1. In a large heat-proof bowl, whisk together 3 whole eggs, 3 egg yolks, 1 cup sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Place the bowl over simmering water and cook, stirring constantly for 10 to 12 minutes until the mixture is thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. 2. Place remaining 3 egg whites and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat at high speed. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Carefully fold beaten egg whites into cold lemon mixture. Wash the used bowl and thoroughly dry. Add the cream to the bowl and again beat at high speed until soft peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into the lemon mixture. 3. Fold in lemon curd and fill individual mousse glasses. Sweetened Whipped Cream 1 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon sugar 2/3 teaspoon vanilla extract 1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat at high speed until the cream just starts to form peaks. Spoon the whipped cream into a piping bag; remember presentation is just as important as taste. Top each lemon mousse with a gorgeous sweetened whipped cream crown. Garnish with a drizzle of Limoncello and fresh mint.

ences to the realm of range. Whether to crown the mousse with a whipped topping is another variable of alternatives. The next question is what to flavor the whipped topping with. Lemon is very delicate so the whipped topping should enhance the dish and at the same time not over power it. A simple vanilla whipped topping is oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best bet. Garnishing is the piece de resistance and should not be overlooked. A splash of Limoncello over the whipped cream highlights the overall theme of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lemon.â&#x20AC;? Limoncello is the Italian word referring to an intensely lemon flavored liqueur most famously associated with and produced in Sorrento, the Amalfi coast and the island of Capri, but also very popular throughout Italy. Limoncello is made from lemon zest, water, alcohol and sugar. It is a beverage usually consumed after meals but is a tasty drink for many occasions. The mouthwatering lemon liqueur is usually served chilled and straight up. Limoncello is optional, but it certainly raises the spectrum of selection. Lemon mousse can shine on its own or be served with fresh berries, pound cake, or even be used as a filling for cannolis. The homemade whipped topping and Limoncello are optional. Taking a simple recipe and elevating it to another level preserves the pleasures of home cooking. The following recipe is an adaptation form Ina Gartenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lemon mousse.

Artists showcased at Pines library Screen painter John Lampieri, photographer John McManus featured

(Aug. 14, 2015) Two artists will display their work at the Ocean Pines library this month. The Artist Spotlight Exhibit features photographer John McManus. His pieces are in the two computer rooms to the right of the common areas of the library. McManus has been photographing the rivers, bays harbors and wildlife of Pennsylvania and Ocean

City for nearly three decades. He visits Ocean City often where he has a condo. McManus has been a professional photographer for more than 20 years. As a graduate of the Art Institute, he constantly strives for excellence in all the images he creates. In recent years, with the advances in digital technology, he has developed a technique which blends the richness of color photography with the soft beauty of oils and water colors. His show will run through the end of August. Screen painting artist John

Lampieriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibit is in the main common areas of the library. Lampieri, who resides in Bishopville, paints screens in the Baltimore Folk Art Tradition. He remembers, and is inspired by, the memory of these functional screens growing up as a child in Baltimore. He uses the techniques of the original masters and creates handpainted screens for windows, doors, porches, and also as wall art. He is well known in art circles and successfully teaches this traditional folk art technique to all ages. His exhibit is scheduled in the main common areas during August and September.

Couple travel to Nicaragua, fit 171 with hearing aids

(Aug. 14 ,2015) In June, two representatives of Chesapeake Hearing Centers, Inc. traveled to Managua, Nicaragua with the Starkey Hearing Foundation (SHF) to fit hearing aids on the local population. For Dr. Caroline H. Aland, Au.D., director of Clinical Services and her husband, Timothy P. Aland, president, it was an adventure that they may never forget. Over a three-day period, the couple fit 171 hearing aids. “Having the chance to work with such a fantastic population was exhilarating. The people of Nicaragua were constantly smiling and excited in many cases to experience hearing aids for the first time,” Dr. Aland said. “We worked with all age groups and just wish we could have done more.” For her husband, it was a chance to get out from behind the desk. “I’ve been working with Chesapeake Hearing Centers for over 23 years,” he said. “Most days are spent dealing with day-to-day operations. This mission really allowed me to step out and work one-on-one with the patients. Even with the language barrier, we knew we were connecting. The folks with the Starkey Hearing Foundation were fantastic and I cannot say enough about Bill Austin and his crew.” Chesapeake Hearing Centers do-

The overall goal is to fit one million aids through SHF, both foreign and domestic. SHF accepts donations of used aids and they can be dropped off at any of Chesapeake’s locations in Ocean Pines, Salisbury, Stevensville, Easton, Annapolis or Severna Park.

Commentary

Long-term event deal best option

As a sponsor of the fireworks and laser shows presented weekly in the summer by TEAM productions, we encourage resort officials to heed the advice of Boardwalk business operators and grant the company a multi-year contract. There is no reason not to, considering that it would entail little risk to government, as these events are being paid for by the Tourism Advisory Board, which, although funded through government, will likely continue to spend its allotment of public dollars one way or the other. As was argued this week in support of a better deal for TEAM Productions, a longer contract would allow it to pursue major sponsorships and financial commitments from private industry and, subsequently, invest more to make the shows better. Equally as important, however, is that increased business support of the shows, and their subsequent reduced dependency on the tourism board to cover their operating costs, will free the board to support other attractions. That, after all, was its original charge – to help enliven the family-oriented resort experience by giving startup attractions a financial boost. As TAB Chairman Greg Shockley told city officials this week, it is currently limited in its ability to do so, and will become essentially useless if the city refuses to give TEAM’s events the opportunity to grow and become more self-sufficient. Whether this can be done will depend on what businesses think of the shows’ draw, rather than the clicker head count approach that has been used and which is too narrowly focused to be accurate. It would be safe to say, after all, that many of the people who watch downtown’s annual Fourth of July fireworks do so at locations other than directly at the site. Spectators are on rooftops, in their yards, far up the Boardwalk, on the beach and even across the bay on the mainland. By giving these weekly programs a longer term, businesses can decide their value and their fate. That’s a much better and more politically prudent approach than acting on a feeling derived from personal observations and questionable numbers.

REPRINT OF AN EMOND CARTOON FROM 2005

Letters to the editor Thanks from Kiwanis Club

Editor, As treasurer of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines — Ocean City it’s my privilege to annually let the members know about the year being completed. I hope it would also be of interest to the local public, which supports the club by attending our many events and fundraisers. Annually a new program year begins on Oct. 1 for the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines — Ocean City. Kiwanis has important work to do for the community. The team of officers will be led by Mark Joseph as president and Tom Southwell as vice president. They, with members’ help, will build on a very successful 2014-2015 program year. Club members can be proud of the contributions the club has made to the community this current year. This club does “Serve the Children.” Starting with a $1,600 contribution to the Worcester Gold Infants Pantry, the club supports local children from elementary through high school. The school-based clubs supported by the Kiwanis Club at Buckingham Elementary, Showell Elementary, Berlin Intermediate, Stephen Decatur Middle School, Stephen De-

catur High School and the Salisbury School provide children an opportunity to learn both leadership skills and the need to help others. Kiwanis also makes a contribution to the schools. In addition to money, members help with their Art Fairs, Science Fairs and “It’s Academic” programs. Outside school, the Club provides funding for many children’s programs: Ocean Pines Cub Scout Pack #480, Ocean Pines Children’s Theater, McGuffey Readers Program for schools, the Cedar Chapel School, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Worcester County, Ocean Pines Department of Parks and Recreation Summer Camp, 4 Steps Therapeutic Riding School, and Key Club LTS. The club supported both financial assistance and mentoring to the Worcester County Beach Bots Robotics team this current year. Overall, the Club will contribute $12,000 toward children’s activities during the current program year. Then the local Kiwanis Club helps them go on to college. This year, the Club awarded 17 college scholarships amounting to $15,500 to graduating seniors to further their education. The Club goes beyond children. Support is provided for many other community activi-

ties. The Club contributes $2,700 and many volunteer hours in support for Ocean Pines Association summer Concerts in the Park, Ocean Pines Volunteer Fire Department, Worcester County Interfaith Caregivers, Diakonia, Worcester Gold Christmas, The Appalachian Service Project through the Ocean Pines Community Church, Companion Dolls for Berlin Nursing Home Alzheimer’s patients, Bingo for the Nursing Home residents and Meals On Wheels Treats. The Club funds all of this with members’ volunteer hours and hard work on fund raising events. Yes, it’s a lot of work to gross over $21,000 in sales and contributions to make the commitments, but it’s rewarding and it counts. So, here, on the brink of 2015-2016, there are still many needs out there in the community needing Kiwanis support.

Alternative to R-1A sought

Editor, The alternative concept for R-1A rental restrictions presented to the Ocean City mayor and council by Chris Mitchell, regional vice president of Coldwell Banker Vacations on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2015 has the full support of the Coastal Association of Realtors (CAR). The concept was approved for endorsement by the CAR Board of Directors as a means to address short-term rental concerns voiced by some homeowners in Ocean City’s R-1 single-family home zoning districts. The concept was made part of the mayor and council’s public work session agenda packet. The council voted to instruct town staff to turn the concept into a formal proposal for consideration at a later date. The preventative and enforcement measures suggested in the concept include a separate rental license for short-

term rentals in R-1 zoned areas, a city inspection to ensure compliance with occupancy laws, a $50 increase in the rental license application fee to cover the cost of the inspection, and a system of fines, among others. A majority of Ocean City’s rental agents are not members of CAR, therefore it was prudent the association find a rental industry partner prior to suggesting an alternative R-1A concept. CAR’s interest in this matter lies with the ability for consumers to buy and sell investment properties in those neighborhoods. We are so fortunate to find a strong partner in Chris Mitchell of Coldwell Banker Vacations who can tell us what the rental industry is willing to do in order to address the concerns of those who support restrictions. We hope this concept is a first step toward the eventual resolution of this matter. The mayor and council have made it clear that rental restrictions are not totally off the table and will be considered again during their Comprehensive Plan update process. We hope this proposed alternative concept will be helpful in that process. For more information about CAR, visit www.coastalrealtors.org.

THE PUBLIC EYE By Stewart Dobson Editor/Publisher The most recent national jobs report shows that more than 200,000 people found employment in the last quarter, which is not surprising considering the many emails I’ve received asking to place help wanted classifieds in the paper. Clearly, the employment situation is looking up, as one of my more recent emails shows: “Sir: I want place classified wanted help in you paper 4 times – pay $750 per weekly. Top nutch opp. Will pay with credit card. Please send rates may required as soon. Sincerely, Skippy Baklava.” It’s just a guess, but I would imagine that someone whose name incoprates both peanut butter and Turkish pastry would be a great guy to work for. That assumes that he is the owner and not the human resources director, which, if that’s what he is, makes me wonder if the owner’s name also might be drawn from the dessert menu. “Good morning, my name is Biff Lemonmeringuepie and I am having job opening.” These solicitations never explain what the jobs entail, although I suspect they are not executive-level, unless, of course, you count “Vice President of Watering the Camels.” Call me a cynic, but I suspect these may not be actual help wanted ads,

and are instead part of a large conspiracy to destabilize our job market by flooding it with incredible opportunities. After all, who wouldn’t wave off General Electric, or even that night manager position at Benny’s 24-Hour Dairy Market in favor of pursuing international opportunities with the entrepreneurial titan, Leonard P. Doughnut? While I don’t think of myself as a xenophobe (no, that is not a musical instrument but is someone who thinks foreigners are, well, too foreign), I do have an ear for funny-sounding names that begin with popular American ones – Brad, Cole, Garth, Kyle – and end with those seemingly picked off a Scrabble board. “Yeah, this’ll work –Ross Apertyx – hahahaha! That’ll fool ‘em.” “Well, I’m Brittany Flapjack. How American is that? Ha!” On the downside, I am probably losing income by deleting any advertising inquiry that has a questionable ring to it. In fact, I might have overreacted a few weeks ago when I canned the following request because something told me it might not be legit. You can decide for yourself. “Sir, I am wishing to place an advert for 4 weeks –Bulldog Puppies for Sale – and will pay by credit card. Please your rates to send me. I am thanking you. Sincerely, Charles Carwax.”
