R1A still in limbo as city moves to toughen existing license rules

None whatsoever,” said Councilman Wayne Hartman. “There’s not a problem until you get caught and then you have time to fix it with no penalty.” Presently, if a landlord is found to be renting a property without registering with the city, he or she needs only to get a rental license ($116) and police noise permit ($25) within 10 days. There is no punitive fee. But on Tuesday, Hartman proposed, and his colleagues See SYSTEM Page 5

Blaze deemed ‘bad luck accident’ after boat burns Continued from Page 1 ter console.” The Smiths, Thomson said, quickly pushed the boat out into the bay away from the pier off 94th Street in the Little Salisbury neighborhood. Thomson gave the pair credit for their quick thinking, and said this method of fire avoidance is not part of a class, or written regulations, but more of a reaction to a situation that turned out well. “It was really fast thinking,” Thomson said. The Ocean City Fire Department reported receiving a call around 11:09 a.m. Friday morning and reportedly dispatched trucks and Fire Boat 1 in response to the call, according to Ocean City spokeswoman Jessica Waters. The units were sent to Bering Road where they reportedly found the boat drifting south, finally coming to a rest in a nearby marsh, where it burned to the water line. The unsecured boat had drifted be-

Trams to run for added weekend on Boardwalk

(Sept. 18, 2015) The Town of Ocean City decided to extend Boardwalk tram service for an additional weekend, with trams scheduled to run from 2-10 p.m. starting Thursday, and running through Sunday, Sept. 20. Although special tram service has run for Sunfest in the past, this year is the first since 2009 that the city has run regular tram service past Labor Day, following post-recession budget cuts. The city’s transportation division reported that last week’s tram service brought in roughly 6,500 riders, in line with ridership the week after Labor Day in years prior to the recession. Unemployment expenses for tram drivers in the off-season have been cited as the highest cost for the tram service, and a major factor in scheduling, limiting the number of hours the city allows drivers to work.

yond where traditional fire suppression methods were effective, but once the fireboat arrived from its dock at 13th Street the blaze was quickly extinguished, according to Waters. “It was a total loss,” Thomson said. According to Thomson, after an internal investigation and determination by the OC Fire Marshal, the cause of the blaze was a “bad luck accident,” and investigators have not found anything related to the manufacturer or make of the boat to contribute to the cause of the fire. One of the Smiths reported minor burn injuries and refused treatment at the scene, Thomson confirmed. A representative of Wellcraft boats declined to comment on the record, but said the Smiths’ boat appears to have been made before the current manufacturer took over operations in 2010.

System lacked incentive to comply with rules Continued from Page 1 agreed, that a $500 fine be issued immediately for those caught running unlicensed rentals, and a $1,000 fine be issued if those properties do not comply within 15 days. The penalty was introduced as part of package of rental control improvements, incorporating most of the suggestions brought forward by a group of local Realtors who had proposed tighter licensing requirements as an instead of creating a new R-1A zoning designation. That measure, intended to protect established R-1 single-family neighborhoods from disturbance by vacation homes, would ban rentals for periods of less than 12 months. However, despite Realtors’ vehement opposition, the idea of an R-1A zone is not dead yet. City officials have promised proponents of the measure that the potential new zone will be revisited in the city’s upcoming comprehensive rezoning initiative. “The measures we’re talking about today do not stop additional comprehensive plan decisions about R-1A,” said Mayor and acting City Manager Rick Meehan. “But those areas that do not become R-1A, if that comes about, would still be helped by what we’re doing.” In addition to creating a much stiffer disincentive to rent without a license, the measures passed this week also introduce a new rental license application for those who are renting out single-family homes. Owners will be required to report the number of bedrooms in the home, calculate its maximum occupancy under the building code, and report where and for how many occupants the property is being advertised. More importantly, if a complaint is made about disturbances from a single-family home, the new guidelines will require owners to produce some

type of certification as to whom the home is rented to, with a statement from the landlord or rental agent that the occupants are a family unit. This is to encourage compliance with the city’s zoning code, which states that R-1 zoned properties can be occupied by no more than four unrelated persons. “We’ve included a form on the back of the new application that is an example for the property owners to use and keep in their files, so that if there is an issue and the inspector comes out and inspects the property, they’ll know how many occupants are supposed to be there and their relationship,” said city License Inspector Mike Sherman. An online map is also proposed to be made available, listing all R-1 properties that are licensed to rent, and allowing neighbors to identify whether a problem property is properly registered. The fee for a rental license in R-1 zones will be raised from $116 to $166 to cover additional costs. The “four unrelated persons” rule has proven difficult to enforce, and lies at the root of why some residents have pushed for the R-1A zone, where vacation rentals would simply be prohibited. Even with additional reporting under the new policy, it’s no guarantee that the city will have the enforcement manpower to keep large, rowdy groups of vacationers out of residential neighborhoods. “The controls are unenforceable,” said John Wright, one of several homeowners in the Mallard Island neighborhood who has pressed the city to adopt R-1A zoning. “Midnight raids to count the number of people might work ... or are we going to take DNA tests to see if people are related? The R-1A proposal is a separate issue and still needs to be addressed in a timely manner.”

Even if the city’s active enforcement is limited, the heftier fines could result in more voluntary compliance. As Hartman noted, the city is shooting itself in the foot by not upping the stakes of being a rental scofflaw, thereby creating a greater reliance on city inspectors actually catching violators. “I think we have to have some type of penalty in the beginning ... it takes the gambling mentality away from it. If there’s no reason to get a license until you get caught, it’s pretty big incentive [to not get one],” Hartman said. Technically, the proposal to create an R-1A zoning clause is still in the council’s court. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission voted in favor of the legislation earlier this year, but the council, after much discussion, did not vote one way or the

other on accepting it as law. Instead, Meehan suggested that it be delayed until it could be incorporated into the upcoming state-required update of the town’s comprehensive plan. Work on the plan update will be undertaken by the Planning and Zoning Commission in the coming months, meaning that the R-1A allowance is likely to be supported again by a body that already endorsed it. During its session this week, the planning commission requested a joint meeting with the council to hash out a number of proposals relating to the comprehensive plan, including R1A. “We need to find out from them if we can just forget about it, or if this is still out for further discussion,” said Commission Chair Pam Buckley.

Recovered Kemp’s Ridley turtles back in open water Continued from Page 1 chusetts, usually following a food source,” Amber White, stranding coordinator for the aquarium, said. “They eat small fish, squid, but blue crabs are their favorites right now.” Hundreds of spectators gathered to watch the releases, as each turtle was removed from its protective case, shown to the crowd, set a few yards back from the surf on the beach and encouraged to return home. After each turtle made its way past the breakers, raucous applause would erupt and the next turtle would repeat the process. The largest of the turtles, nicknamed “Beauregard” after the Muppets character according to Jennifer Dittmar, manager of animal rescue at the aquarium, was rescued in Cape

Cod, Ma. after being “cold stunned.” The second largest turtle, nicknamed “Prince,” was also recovered in Cape Cod in November 2014 — the same month as Beauregard, however it is unknown if the two animals were rescued at the same time — according to the aquarium. Kemp’s Ridley turtles are coldblooded animals like all sea turtles. If a turtle swims along a warm current and happens into colder waters, their bodies sometimes have a tough time adapting to the change. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s fisheries division lists the symptoms of cold stunning as “decreased heart rate, decreased circulation and lethargy followed by shock, pneumonia and possibly death.”

Scuttle lives up to his nickname as he makes his way through the breakers at Assateague State Park on Friday morning. Having only gained one-half pound during his recovery, Scuttle was the smallest of the three turtles released last Friday. Scuttle was hooked by an angler in Virginia.

Beauregard was reportedly treated for a “variety of ailments” and “gained 6.5 pounds” during his recovery, according to the aquarium.

The third and smallest of the released turtles, nicknamed “Scuttle,” was accidentally hooked by a fisherman in Virginia in May. Scuttle reportedly “had a tough time of it,” and only gained “one-half pound” during his recovery, the aquarium’s blog noted. Of the three, Scuttle was the most lethargic and took the longest to reenter the ocean. Both Beauregard and Prince were very eager to return. “Assateague is a great natural environment for us to release back into the wild,” Dittmar said. “It’s great to work in this place, with these people and it’s the perfect time of year while the water is still warm and turtles are being spotted.”

Commissioners defy state law requiring plan change In 4-3 vote, county rejects adopting provisions into code mandating recycling

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) While Ocean City is pursuing a legislative remedy via State Sen. Jim Mathias (D-38) to avoid the state’s new recycling mandate by introducing a measure at the next session, the County Commissioners on Tuesday simply decided to not comply with it. The new law obligates Worcester and the other political subdivisions in the state to amend their state-approved recycling plans to include a provision that requires recycling facilities at all special events held on public property. Although the county might enforce that provision, it will not amend its current plan to reflect that, following a vote to that effect by a four-member majority of commissioners Chip Bertino, Merrill Lockfaw, Joe Mitrecic and Bud Church. Voting to go along with the law were commissioners Jim Bunting, Ted Elder and Diana Purnell. The commissioners did vote unanimously to voice their concerns with the stricter recycling law in a letter to the

state and will cite what they contend is a hardship on nonprofit organizations and the “undue burden” on Ocean City. Elder signaled his intent to change his vote on complying with the law by asking if a new vote were possible, but the rest of the board agreed that unanimous consent on the letter would be enough. “Regardless of passage, we still need to enforce it,” County Attorney Sonny Bloxom advised. As it stands, event organizers, at the discretion of the commissioners, can be fined $50 per day for noncompliance with the plan, which requires easily identifiable containers for recyclables near trash receptacles and that the materials collected for recycling are, in fact, recycled. In 2009, Ocean City abandoned its recycling program in favor of incinerating the refuse to produce energy. “Ocean City has its own type of recycling and they are very proud of the program,” Mitrecic said. The problem is, the Maryland Department of the Environment doesn’t call what Ocean City does “recycling.” Previous statements from City Hall that Ocean City’s trash-to-energy is recognized by the state as recycling, however, may not be so, according to See MATHIAS Page 8

Mathias to partner with OC MDE could impose building, for new recycling exemption wastewater permit sanctions Continued from Page 7 David Mrgich, chief of the waste diversion division at the MDE. Neither does the resort’s program bring it into compliance with the new law, as city officials have contended. “This is inaccurate,” Mrgich wrote in an e-mail to a number of people, including County Public Works Director John Tustin. “The burning of OC’s waste is not recognized by MDE as a means for recycling.” He added, “Only any resultant ash from the incineration process that is recycled counts towards a county’s recycling rate. Additionally, the management of OC’s waste via burning does not bring OC into compliance with the special events recycling law.” Ocean City’ government spokesperson Jessica Waters said, after being advised of Mrgich’s statements, that it was never the city’s intention to go against the new regulation. “As far as I knew, we were in compliance,” she said. At the time recycling was discontinued in the resort, the city reported only about 10 percent of the resort’s waste was being recycled. The move to incineration has saved the town hundreds of thousands of dollars in collections, wages and other costs. Some money has also been re-

covered from selling off the fleet of recycling trucks and other equipment. “Ocean City … exempted … condominiums from mandatory curbside programs,” Mathias said. “Given the logic, it could work again. The mayor asked if I could help. We haven’t sat down and worked out the precise language, but once that happens, I’ll be happy to put it in.” All municipally and county-owned venues in the state are subject to the regulations. Special events falling under the new rules also must serve food, drink and expect more than 200 attendees. Locally, this includes the Ocean City Inlet parking lot, Sunset Park, Northside Park and the convention center. A vast majority of events at these venues, such as Sunfest or Winterfest, would appear to fall under the jurisdiction of the new regulations. The requirements, which passed the Maryland General Assembly in 2014, state that special events held on public lands must provide recycling containers for metal glass and paper. The bill goes into effect Oct. 1, 2015. This expanded on an earlier law, House Bill 929, which set Worcester’s targeted recycling rate at 20 percent, which the county meets, according to documentation provided by the county.

HMRA cries foul after vendors list used by vendor

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) At least one service outside of the Ocean City Spring Trade Expo presented by the HotelMotel-Restaurant Association has been farming vendor information from the website and is using it to solicit reservations within the resort. The association sent out an email with the subject “Scam alert with our OCHMRA Trade Expo info” to members last week to advise partner organizations of the situation. But the company that sent out the reservation information, Convention Housing Authority, denies any wrongdoing. “I’m assuming, since we’re having this conversation, the e-mail in question is from an unaffiliated mailing,” Dan Holloway, one of the principals at the Convention Housing Authority, said. Holloway said his e-mail solicitations are clearly marked at the bottom to allow users to determine if they are being contacted by the vendor as an affiliate of an event or if their bid was unsolicited. Holloway said his business specializes in finding hotel rooms for people near convention centers when all other rooms appear to be booked. “It looks like the business is legitimate,” Susan Jones, executive director of the HMRA, said. “Basically we have trade show information on our website and they used it to call and email all our exhibitors to sell them hotel rooms.” Jones said some of the information sent to exhibitors is factually inaccurate, such as listing information for hotels known to be closed during the time of the expo, March 6-7, 2016. Holloway said his listing information is updated regularly. Jones said she filed a complaint with the Ocean City Police Department.

Man dies after motorcycle hits telephone pole

(Sept. 18, 2015) Snow Hill Emergency Medical Services pronounced Steven Hoffman, 65, of Pittsville dead at the scene of a motorcycle accident on Sunday afternoon. Police reported his motorcycle left the roadway while driving southbound on Route 354, went through a ditch before finally hitting a telephone pole. The Maryland State Police CRASH Team has taken over the investigation into the collision and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office provided assistance with this death. Steven was the brother of local businessman Brad Hoffman.

Sinepuxent Ave. to become bike-friendly route in resort By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Riding a bicycle the entire length of Ocean City may still not be entirely safe, but at least it’s getting safer. As part of the city’s effort to create a bike path that avoids Coastal Highway and Baltimore Avenue, the council’s Transportation Committee on Tuesday endorsed plans to re-configure Sinepuxent Avenue for added bicycle-friendliness. “What I would propose is that we use the same layout we use on St. Louis Avenue,” said City Engineer Terry McGean. This would entail putting bicycle lane marks in the excess space between the vehicle travel and the street parking lanes. Sinepuxent is a 60-foot right-of-way and has ample room. It would also involve, McGean suggested, removing the cross-street stop signs on Sinepuxent that aren’t aligned with lighted intersections on Coastal Highway. Many bicycles and cars already run the signs at those streets where cross-traffic is rare. “Right now, on Sinepuxent, you’re stopped at every numbered street ... we did that originally to slow down traffic and prevent Sinepuxent from becoming ‘Coastal Highway West,’” McGean said. “But if we’re going to encourage bike traffic, I’d like to take out some of the stops. It’s a more reasonable pattern.” For the past several months, the city has been working to develop a way for bicyclists to get from the Delaware line down to the inlet without entering a major lane of traffic, using side streets, alleys and open lots. Sinepuxent is an ideal northsouth alternative to Coastal Highway above 130th Street, just as St. Louis is below 17th. Below Sinepuxent, cyclists can also use Jamaica Avenue by pedaling

through the open area behind the shopping center at 130th Street and accessing the avenue at the curb cut adjacent to the city Parks Division garage. Jamaica Avenue stretches from there down to 123rd Street. In order to create a bike lane on Jamaica, which is comparatively narrow, the west-side street parking would need to be removed. This is considered to be less palatable given the heavy parking load during events at Northside Park. “The [lane removal] is probably the better option, but it’s an issue of practicality when people suddenly say, ‘where’d the parking go?’” Mayor Rick Meehan said. McGean proposed that “share the road” signs be installed on Jamaica Avenue as a compromise measure. Efforts are also continuing to establish a bike trail through the midtown areas of the city, but this will undoubtedly be a much longer-term project given the number of easements and right-of-way agreements that will be needed for a bike path to be marked over private property. Letters of interest and sample easement agreements are slated to be sent out to a number of properties in the coming weeks. The city is also willing to make modifications to private parking lots and driveways, at the city’s expense, if owners are interested in allowing a bicycle path to run over their property. A mock-up design has already been done for one such property, the Econo Lodge on 29th Street, which is the only property on Baltimore Avenue north of the Boardwalk that does not have a north-south traffic passage. “If we do get the route clear at that location, we need to let the international students know and get them off Baltimore Avenue. That’s the most dangerous situation out there,” Council Secretary Mary Knight said.

Ocean City to oppose offshore seismic testing Process used to identify oil or gas deposits can be harmful, fatal to marine life

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) If you think your upstairs neighbor’s constant thumping is bad, imagine how the fish are going to feel. Ocean City may be passing a resolution next week opposing federal plans to permit the use of underwater sound cannons to test for oil and gas deposits below the ocean floor off of the resort’s beach. The Assateague Coastal Trust is trying to rally support for the resolution, to be presented to the city council at this coming Monday’s session. “I think we would likely send a letter to our congressional delegation and to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management,” said City Engineer Terry McGean. “It’s the council’s decision, but my personal recommendation was that the potential benefit of any jobs created from offshore oil and gas exploration is probably pretty far outweighed by the risk to an industry we already have, which is fishing.” Maryland is not technically included yet in federal plans to permit offshore drilling, and couldn’t be for

another five years — but it’s close. Energy leases for waters further south are included in the upcoming federal fiveyear ocean management plan, although Maryland itself is not. “At the beginning of this year, they released a plan for 2017 through 2022, and in that plan they include an area from the Maryland-Virginia border down to the Florida-Georgia line where they propose oil and gas leases offshore,” said Matt Heim with the Assateague Coastal Trust. But in anticipation of those leases, and the possibility of northern waters being opened in the five-year cycle after that, the BOEM has begun to authorize seismic testing permits for companies to map where exactly oil and gas deposits are, up and down the East Coast. “The information the companies gather is proprietary, so it’s a product they can sell,” Heim said. “They’re interested in knowing where the oil is, so they can sell that information to oil companies, who will buy it on speculation regardless of whether they’re actually allowed to drill or not in the next several years.” The seismic exploration is done using air-powered sound cannons, which are fired underwater via large ships. Reverberations are then analyzed to map the geological features below the ocean’s floor.

The issue with this process is that the sound blasts scare away almost all forms of marine life, interrupting mating, feeding, and migration patterns. The blasts may even deafen certain species, including marine mammals such as dolphins and whales, and vibrations may also dislodge oyster spat, crab spawn and other valuable fish. In the spring of 2014, the BOEM issued its final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) regarding geological surveying of the Atlantic sea floor. Among other issues, this report detailed the expected level of wildlife “take” for various seismic activities. “Take” is defined as “a range of effects from behavioral disturbance to mortality,” essentially meaning how many animals will be seriously bothered or outright killed by the testing. For instance, the PEIS notes that an estimated take of 138,500 marine mammals for full-scale seismic testing, although this does not factor in any of the mitigation efforts that BOEM recommended be enacted if permits are to be issued. Still, this is not necessarily an endorsement of offshore seismic testing, despite the fact that federal agencies have allowed the permitting process to continue, much to the chagrin of environmental advocates. “It’s kind of a scary reality of how

they manage the marine populations,” said Caroline Wood, Mid-Atlantic Organizer for Climate and Energy with Oceana. “Even for the states that are in the next five-year plan, the drills would not go in the water until 2021. It’s years and years until we would need this, and the fact that they’re pushing the testing through now is mind-boggling.” So far, three companies have applied for four permits for such testing, with each authorization having to go through several agencies. The city’s understanding, McGean said, is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is the longest permitting process, and likely won’t be cleared until next year. NOAA must issue what is known as an Incidental Take Authorization, which is where the question of seismic impact on marine life will be most crucial. Although the PEIS addressed seismic testing for a number of applications, including construction surveys for offshore wind turbines, the type of surveys being done for oil and gas are noted as particularly adverse. “When you’re doing it to site wind turbines or to look for shipwrecks, you’re doing it at a much less intense level, and you already know roughly where you’re looking,” Heim said. “For See RESORT Page 14

Emergency Services Director Fred Webster noted several revisions to the contract awarded to the Harris Corporation to upgrade the county’s aging radio network. The sum of the system contract has been revised from $4.8 million to a not to exceed amount of just over $5 million, Webster said in a memo to the commissioners. Maintenance costs for the system have also been revised, but downward to the tune of almost $1 million, according to Webster. Assuming the contingency funds are expended, Webster wrote, the new total is almost $601,000 less than the amount already approved by the commissioners. The commissioners accepted the new total.

offices and animal control will also get new phones this year. Despite the additional phone systems, about $15,000 of the budgeted amount remains. The courthouse, state’s attorney’s office, jail and liquor control board will not receive upgraded phones this year.

9-1-1 upgrades The Emergency Number Systems Board is funding upgrades to the county’s existing service, including hardware that will eventually be able to support incoming emergency texts and video. The commissioners agreed to waive normal bidding and contract with Carousel Industries of Newport News, VA to do the work. Emergency Services Director Fred Webster said Carousel is the preferred vendor due to service technician availability in the area.

Suicide prevention month The county declared September Suicide Prevention Month and urged residents to participate in the annual Out of the Darkness Walk on Sept. 26 on the Boardwalk and Caroline St.

Rural Legacy approved Despite objections from Commissioner Ted Elder, the county approved the purchase of development rights to about 106 acres for $231,000 as part of the rural legacy program. Elder’s objections ranged from the mechanics of the program to a theory of collusion between separate appraisers in determining property values, the latter of which was quickly debunked by county staff. The commissioners voted 6-1 to approve the sale.

Resort objections pale as compared to hunger for oil Continued from Page 12 oil, the sound waves have to penetrate really far down into the earth, and they’re casting a really wide net. The area they’re wanting to survey is pretty much the whole eastern seaboard.� The state has some, but not much, control over BOEM’s authorizations, McGean said. Local jurisdictions essentially have none, at least officially. However, according to Oceana, over 80 coastal municipalities have passed resolutions opposing seismic testing, similar to what Ocean City is looking to do. “They will not ask for a formal opinion from us,� McGean said. “They’ve gone through the state, and the Maryland Department of the Environment has issued what they call a consistency letter, which means they concur, with conditions. Basically they had to agree in order to be able to set limits on the testing, to keep it out of the fishing canyons for certain times of year.�

City extends free event contracts through ‘17 Offerings to be expanded without breaking $300K tourism board budget

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) While the city may have addressed the immediate of issue of whether or not it wants to continue its current lineup of freefor-visitors events, the bigger question of funding is still out there. This week, the city’s Tourism Commission endorsed an extension to the town’s contract with Special Event/T.E.A.M. Productions, the local event company that organizes the series of summertime firework and laser shows, as well as OCtoberfest and OC Sandfest. The events were contracted by the

city for 2015, with an extension option for 2016. The production company, in the interest of locking in potential sponsors to expand the offerings, was looking for — and received — a guaranteed agreement through 2017. “Tracking down sponsorship is the key,” said Jack Hennen, who runs Special Event/T.E.A.M. along with colleague Bob Rothermel. “Every year, we start $50,000 in debt and it’s a question of how fast we can get people to pick it up that dictates how much we can do.” With two years of guaranteed exposure, Rothermel and Hennen said their ability to generate revenue from advertising sponsorships would increase considerably. This would allow the event lineup to continue to grow, without increasing the city’s total contribution of $300,000 per year. The larger issue, not addressed at the meeting, is where this $300,000 will come from. The city’s Tourism Advisory Board, a group of business owners who make event funding rec-

that businesses could sponsor in a certain location,” Rothermel said. “It’s the firefly effect. People are drawn to something like that.” The commission also discussed the timing of the events, with there being some desire to include programs on Thursdays, as opposed to the current Sunday-Monday-Tuesday layout. Spacing things out may drive up costs due to the timing of supplies being brought in, especially for fireworks, Rothermel noted. On a macro scale, it was also suggested to push more events into the last two weeks before Labor Day, a time when visitorship typically starts to drop off due to schools starting earlier in Maryland. OC Sandfest takes place during that period, and plans are in place to expand the event. “It really showed this year in the number of people we saw from New Jersey and New York,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “Reaching out to those areas that start school later has really helped the end of the season.”

ommendations to the city, has traditionally allocated the money. However, TAB’s annual allocation from the city’s budget is exactly $300,000, meaning that, if Rothermel and Hennen continue to be funded at the current level, the group will have no discretionary spending left to seed new events until at least 2018. This doesn’t mean that the city won’t be getting anything new, as Rothermel and Hennen have already pledged to expand the offerings in the coming two years. Possibilities include adding a concert series, “especially in the June Sunday time period where we probably need some help business-wise,” Rothermel said. Plans are also in the works the build a large, lighted sign — in similar style to the iconic Hollywood lettering — that could be moved around town for photo opportunities. It was suggested that the sign read “#OCMD” in order to generate social media buzz. “It becomes a mobile visitor center

Police launch new website to address recruitment issues City still moving forward with long-term study of OCPD seasonal staffing

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) All you need is a few good men and women and a decent website. In that vein, Ocean City government launched a new web page this week, www.joinocpd.com, as a recruitment tool for the Ocean City Police Department to improve the number and quality of seasonal officers and support staff. At the same time, the city is proceeding with an outside study of the OCPD’s personnel needs, to address long-term issues with the summertime and year-round force. For 2015 summer, the department found itself fielding fewer than 70 seasonal officers, as opposed to the standard complement of at least 100. The city hopes to remedy the situation, in part, with a more active recruiting campaign similar to that undertaken last year to attract more summer bus drivers. “It’s been talked about for the past year now, particularly in the last six months, about how we can improve our recruitment for seasonal employees not only generally, but specifically in transportation and the police ... certain departments where we really rely on these seasonal employees,” said city Communications Manager Jessica Waters, who was involved with the website’s design. The new page is independent of the city’s general government website, as opposed to recruitment materials that were previously found as a sub-page of the OCPD’s page on the main site. The new page also features job descriptions and recruitment information in an organized, easy-to-use menu, as opposed to the wall of text that it was previously. “It’s a matter of knowing who you’re targeting and how you brand yourself,” Waters said. “One of the things the police saw from candidates was that the info was getting lost on the website.” A better web page, however, will only address part of the OCPD’s recruitment problem. Not only is there a lack of applicants generally, but also a lack of qualified applicants. Earlier this year, OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro had noted that the failure rate during the testing period for new recruits was 79 percent. The reason for this figure, Buzzuro said, is that the department has gradually reformed its hiring standards for summer officers to bring them in line with the full requireSee EFFORTS Page 18

SEPTEMBER 18, 2015

Efforts will address candidate failure rate Continued from Page 17 ments of the Maryland Police Service Training Commission. Ocean City is unique in having a carve-out in the state’s police legislation, which creates requirements for summer officers that are outside of MPSTC control, and which are thus immune to any state-mandated updates in training and qualification standards. The caveat to this is that Ocean City must hire at least 100 officers each year in order for the exemption to take effect.

This creates a tipping point, as tighter standards mean fewer applicants will succeed. If the OCPD wishes to update its standards for seasonal officers to the point where fewer than 100 officers qualify, it then must meet the full requirement of the MPSTC and cease to have a seasonal force — at least by the state’s definition — which thus tightens the requirements even further. Although the public does not see the difference, this past summer’s crop of seasonal recruits are actually

classified as “probationary” fulltime officers, as opposed to summer cops. To address the department’s future recruitment and training standards, former City Manager David Recor had put together a proposal for the International City Managers’ Association’s Center for Public Safety Management to conduct a study of the OCPD. This initiative was put on ice briefly before the summer began, and Recor abruptly departed his post this past July. However, the council has recently

picked the contract back up, according to Mayor and acting City Manager Rick Meehan. “We have an agreement with the ICMA-CPSM that’s actually on my desk to be signed right now,” Meehan said this week. “It will be a significant project. Their consultants will be coming down here to meet with us and observe the duties and responsibilities of the department, our crime statistics, our deployment patterns.” Total cost for the study is scheduled at $60,000.

Shoreline Commission KO’d, replaced with staff and BZA County abolishes board, ending months of debate, hearings and speculation

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Ending months of hearings and debate, the Worcester County Commissioners delivered the coup de grace to the Shoreline Commission Tuesday, transferring authority to an as-yet-unnamed staff member and funneling appeals to the Board of Zoning Appeals. This is the second vote this year to dismantle the board, composed of seven members each appointed by a county commissioner. In the earlier vote, the commissioners voted to transfer appeal authority to the Board of Zoning Appeals, but the vote to end the commission failed, 4-3. After that, the board voted to undo its previous action. Later, Commissioner Chip Bertino, who voted in favor of keeping the board but then found that 72 percent of cases heard by the commission came from his district, invoked his right as a member of the affirming majority to revisit the issue. Docks, piers, riprap, replacement bulkheads and soft shorelines all fall under the commission’s jurisdiction.

Under the former structure, a neighbor believing a project under the Shoreline Commission’s jurisdiction would negatively affect his or her property could request a hearing. Neighbors would also be alerted by mail if a major project were intended in their area. Under the proposed legislation, amended by Bertino during the first go-round and approved by the rest of the county commissioners, these processes would remain largely intact. Knowing the vote would again be close, the commissioners chose to delay the issue for one month as absences of Commissioners Merrill Lockfaw and Commissioner Ted Elder would end any vote in a tie. “No other county in the state,� Environmental Services Director Bob Mitchell said, performs the functions in the way Worcester County does. Mitchell said most of the other counties in Maryland perform the functions of the Shoreline Commission as part of the normal permitting process. “The question,� Mitchell said, “is a philosophical one: is this where we want to be?� Commissioners Bertino, Elder, Jim Bunting and Joe Mitrecic voted to abolish the commission. Commissioners Lockfaw, Bud Church and Diana Purnell voted against.

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Contingent upon the receipt of funds from Hat Trick Consulting — the firm responsible for the idea in the first place, and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, Worcester County is ready to proceed with the market analysis study for a proposed stadium to be placed in an as-yet undetermined location. That was the message the Worcester County Commissioners received Tuesday in Snow Hill from county personnel during an update on the proposal. The field of possible locations was somewhat narrowed as DBED requires, as part of its funding agreement, the facility to be located within a “priority funding area,” which, it turns out, still covers a lot of ground in Worcester. According to Ed Tudor, director of development review and permitting, these areas were established in 1997. Municipalities automatically qualify at their 1997 borders and annexations since then could qualify if they meet certain criteria, Tudor said. “There are smatterings all over the place,” outside of those conditions, Tudor said, “from there it’s best to go online and search.” The first phase of the study, to be conducted by the Maryland Stadium Authority’s on-call evaluator, Crossroads Consulting, will examine market demand for three components, Merry Mears, deputy economic development director, said. Mears has taken the lead on this project since Bill Badger resigned from the Economic Development Director post two weeks ago. The first component would be a 5,000- to 8,000-seat arena with a minor hockey league team as its primary tenant. The second would be an adjacent ice rink used as a practice space and other recreational uses, and

the third would be an outdoor sports complex for youth/amateur leagues and tournaments. If one or more of these three components are found to be viable, then phase II of the study triggers, which would investigate the economic and fiscal impacts of the viable portions. DBED and the MSA would pay for phase II. The total cost for phase I is $47,600. Of that, $15,000 is coming from Worcester County, Hat Trick has said it will contribute $5,000, DBED’s share is $15,700 and the Maryland Stadium Authority will contribute $11,900. “Do we have anything in writing [about their contribution] from Hat Trick?” Commissioner Chip Bertino asked Mears. “No,” was her reply. With the DBED contingency and Hat Trick’s contribution still not on the ledger, Mears proposed collecting the funds first, resulting in the contingency approach, though it was not without its critics. “I’m concerned with the state’s reaction to the conditional approval,” Commissioner Bud Church said. On a question from Commissioner President Jim Bunting, County Attorney Sonny Bloxom confirmed if the money from either DBED or Hat Trick fails to materialize, the county would be able to walk away from the deal. Commissioner Merrill Lockfaw, who represents the Pocomoke area, wanted assurances that all appropriate areas of the county will be considered as a possible site for the stadium. Lockfaw has said he would like to see the stadium located outside of the north end of the county. Commissioner Joe Mitrecic said he thought the stadium would be good for future tourism, and an important asset to the county. Bertino was the lone dissenting vote. In an earlier presentation, Hat Trick Consultants President Mike Barack said projected revenue and expenses based on a $40 million stadium at 3.5 percent interest amortized over 20 years forecasts would be about $312,000 in net revenue annually.

OC Commander Hotel renovations outlined Allowances from resort necessary to complete ‘ambitious’ redevelopment

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Although plans are still in their infancy, the Commander Hotel on 14th Street will likely be seeking a number of allowances from the city in order to proceed with an ambitious renovation project. The hotel’s attorney, Hugh Cropper, and architect Jeff Schoellkopf appeared before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission this week for an informal presentation prior to finalizing plans. “We’re going to have to go through a lot of steps, but we’d appreciate your blessing,” Cropper told

the commission. In essence, the planned renovations would add back a number of traditional architectural features that hearken back to the original Commander, which was built in 1930. In the 1990s, however, a series of reconstruction projects resulted in the current hotel, parts of which have a “concrete box” appearance that the owners would like to get rid of, Cropper said. “In the early 90s, when this happened, it was virtually impossible to finance these projects, and so the features were value-engineered out,” Cropper said. “We have old plans and submissions that are much more inkeeping with traditional coastal architecture, but these never came to fruition. It got sanitized for financial reasons.” The renovations will have some

modern touches, however — particularly the use of “green roofs,” the now-popular practice of putting grasses, shrubs and trees atop roofs. Renovation plans consist of three major elements, Schoellkopf said. An alley actually bisects the Commander property, which consists of two separate buildings on either side of the alley that runs north-south, connecting 14th and 15th Streets between Baltimore Avenue and the Boardwalk. The idea would be to build a roof over the alley, in the style of a traditional porte cochere. This structure would feature plantings on top, so that guess on the hotels upper stories would be able to look down on greenery, instead of an alley full of cars. The porte cochere would also provide a clear entryway to the hotel, which will also undergo extensive

lobby renovations. “Right now, there is no clear entrance area ... people just stop and the end of 14th Street to unload and it jams up,” Cropper said. “This would look similar to some of the nicer hotels in town where you pull under a See DESIGN Page 24

Study will verify $300K revenue estimate for venue Continued from Page 20 Using revenue sources such as merchandizing, club seats and suites, naming rights and rent, Barack projected $7.5 million in gross revenue offset by $3 million in operating expenses and $1.3 million in staff. Debt service is estimated at $2.8 million, leaving about $300,000. The MSA approved the project for study during its Aug. 4 meeting, which was then sent on to a state legislature committee for approval on a 30-day timeline. Even though it appeared some state officials were unaware of it – a request for information on Sept. 1 produced a “there’s nothing yet” response, the committee approved the study on Aug. 24.

Design shortfalls to be remedied Continued from Page 22 roof and there’s a valet.” Further, Schoellkopf plans to design a facade renovation for the ground floor on the south side of the hotel, facing 14th Street. This will involve extensive landscaping and large guest porches, similar to those that were common in Ocean City decades ago. “This is bringing the lower level of the building into a more pedestrianfriendly configuration and a stylistic match to the floors above,” Schoellkopf said. Finally, the Boardwalk face of the hotel will be rebuilt. This will involve moving the existing deck toward the boards to eliminate the unusual gap created by the 1990s construction. The new deck will feature plantings on top, creating a small elevated park, as well as stores below.

“The old hotel that was demolished was actually built out onto city property,” Cropper said. “The old wall that held up the porches is still there, capped in concrete.” The configuration, as passersby tend to notice, is rather unusual — with a considerable gap between the stump of the wall and the bottom of the deck, through which the underground parking area can be seen. The area behind the gap typically fills with trash and vagrant teenagers during summer. “Now, you’re going to see glass doors with columns, a green roof with trees growing on top of the facade and a pedestrian-friendly area,” Cropper said. The plans will require at least two exemptions from the city. Firstly, reducing the setback of the deck will require a variance from the city’s Board

of Zoning Appeals. Further, roofing over the alley, which is a public rightof-way, will require direct dispensation from the Mayor and City Council. Although the city’s normal setback along the Boardwalk is 32 feet for properties above Third Street, many areas are grandfathered in to have less, city Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith noted. The city has also granted zoning overlay districts to large projects, which severely reduce the requirement. The Holiday Inn on 17th Street has only four feet of setback for its ground-floor stores, in exchange for the hotel tower being pushed back 60 to 70 feet from the boards, Smith noted. “Our first big step will be to go to the BZA and prove hardship or difficulty on the setback,” Cropper said.

Code tightening in response to July 4 Boater’s Aid farce Rules intend to equate water, land-based festivals

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Worcester County officials are seeking to add 17 words to the county’s public safety code to ensure that confusion involving events like this summer’s canceled ‘Boater’s Aid’ festival doesn’t happen again. The festival, which had been scheduled for July 4, was to take place in the Isle of Wight Bay and caused controversy when organizer Allen Barzak was reported to have state approval from the Maryland Department of the Environment, but ran afoul of local ordinances when county officials maintained he did not have the proper clearances to hold the event. The festival, which was said to be a fundraiser for St. Jude’s hospital and would feature performers such as the Guess Who, Heart by Heart and Jo Dee Messina, did not take place. The subsection of the public safety article to be amended provides an exemption for permits for fundraising activities by church, civic or charitable organizations within the county. The new language will make those same organizations pursue a special exception through the Board of Zoning Appeals. This change would bring the process in line with what is required of land-based musical festivals, Director of Development Review and Permitting Ed Tudor said. The new text, to be discussed during a public hearing on the matter scheduled for Oct. 20, reads: “but shall apply for activities to be conducted on waters owned or managed by a public entity.” “We have provisions with regards to music festivals. The law does not apply on water,” Tudor said. “I’m not advocating for a position but to simply apply the same criteria for on water and on land.”

Fiddler’s Convention picks, plucks again this weekend Such Fools, winners of last year’s band competition, kicks off event Fri. in Berlin

By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) The Berlin Fiddler’s Convention returns to Main Street this weekend for three days of free live entertainment as well as youth and adult musical competitions. Such Fools, a local act and winners of last year’s full-band competition, will open the 23rd annual festival with a set on Friday at 7 p.m. at the north end of Main Street. Headliner Bob Perilla’s Big Hillbilly Bluegrass will follow at approximately 8:15. On Saturday, the competition portion of Fiddler’s will move to the south end of Main Street. Running from noon to 5 p.m., the competition will feature adult and children’s categories for the fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and full band. Signup will remain open until the day of the event and awards will be presented at the conclusion of the competition. New this year to the convention this year will be nearly a dozen art

vendors working together as “companies,” according to Chamber of Commerce Administrative Assistant Morgan Coulson, one of the event’s organizers. “We’re including vendors who sell items such as artwork made out of recycled CDs and vinyl albums, and guitars made out of cigar boxes – musically themed work that we thought would mesh well with the festival,” she said. The chamber will raffle off two instruments during the event: a beginner fiddle donated by Beach Music, and a mandolin donated by Eastman Strings. Tickets are $5 each, three for $10, or 10 for $20. A Gospel Bluegrass Jam will close the weekend on the lawn of the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum on Main Street from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Coulson said the three-day festival has earned its reputation as a signature event for both the town and the chamber. “We are constantly trying to improve our events and we believe our music festival is going to be better than ever,” Coulson continued. “In short, we want people to drink, eat, dance, forget about their worries and have a good time with great music.”

Police urge extra caution on roads during bike week

(Sept. 18, 2015) Thousands of motorcyclists are visiting the Ocean City area for the annual OC BikeFest Motorcycle Rally, which began Thursday. The Ocean City Police Department reminds motorists and motorcyclists to share the road and be alert to keep motorcyclists safe. “It is up to all motorists and motorcyclists to make our roads safer,” Chief Ross Buzzuro said. “Drivers should perform visual checks for motorcyclists by checking mirrors and blind spots before they enter or exit a lane of traffic. Pedestrians should also get into the habit of scanning for motorcyclists who might be hidden by other traffic.” According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are much more vulnerable than a passenger vehicle in the event of a crash. Motorcyclists should remain aware of other drivers, never ride impaired or distracted, and always wear a helmet and other protective gear.

STEWART DOBSON/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Motorcyclists ride down Coastal Highway on Wednesday, with many bikers arriving early this week to enjoy the weather prior to the official start of OC BikeFest and other events which kicked off Thursday.

In order to help keep motorcyclists safe in Ocean City, the Ocean City Police Department offers the following tips: -Perform a visual check for motorcycles by checking mirrors and blind spots before entering or exiting a lane of traffic and at intersections. -Always signal your intentions before changing lanes or merging with traffic. -Allow more following distance –

three or four seconds – when behind a motorcycle so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. In addition, motorcyclists should follow these tips to remain safe: -Avoid riding in poor weather conditions. -Wear brightly colored protective gear and a DOT-compliant helmet. -Combine hand signals and turn signals to draw more attention.

WORLD WAR II: LORD HAW-HAW

Ann Holtz

Lord Haw-Haw was Nazis’ British radio propaganda man

By Joseph E. Moore, Esq. Contributing Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) On April 30, 1945, William Joyce was very drunk. Not only was that a problem, but to add to the situation, he had decided to take to the airways, and proclaim his distress. His voice was heard by hundreds of thousands of people who had tuned in to listen, because he was the infamous Nazi broadcaster, “Lord Haw-Haw.” However, even in this last, very inebriated speech, his Irish heritage betrayed him, due to the Galway inflection of his speech. “My work has been in vain. No measures will shatter Germany. Germany will live because the German people have in them the secret of life!” What Joyce did not realize was that, on that very day, Adolph Hitler had committed suicide, and Nazi Germany had less than two weeks before it would surrender, ending the European Theater of War in World War II. Joyce in England Joyce was Irish by blood, American by birth (he was born in Brooklyn, N.Y.) and held a British passport. He had moved with his English mother and Irish-American father to Galway, Ireland, in 1915. He later went to England, where he attended King’s College School for a brief time. Ironically, he also joined the Officer Training School at Birkbeck College of the University of London, and obtained a First Class Honors’ degree. However, at this time he also developed an interest in Fascism. His Nazi leanings were formulated when he had joined, in the mid-1930s, the British Fascist Party formed by Sir Oswald Mosley. He swiftly became a powerful speaker for the cause and was described by English journalist Cecil Rogers as, “... intense ... electrifying ... terrifying in his dynamic force ... so vitriolic ... so vitupera-

He also had a reputation as a brawler and his willingness to physically confront opposition head-on in violent brawls caused a marginalization of the Fascist Party in England. He also caused the change of the party name to “The British Union of Fascist and National Socialists” in 1936, bringing Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) party into the mix. In 1937, he stood for election as a party candidate in the London City Council election, but of course, did not take office. Joyce was sacked from his paid position when Mosley fired him and drastically reduced the party staff after the disastrous results of the 1937 election. He fled to Germany in August 1939, after he had been tipped off that the British authorities intended to detain him under the “Defense Regulation Act.” This was just before the war broke out when Germany invaded Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, causing England and France to declare war. Almost immediately, he joined Joseph Goebbels’ Propaganda Ministry as a broadcaster, after a chance meeting with a fellow English Fascist expatriate got him an audition at the German RundSee CENSORSHIP Page 37

Censorship boosts Joyce’s appeal in Britain dium of British wartime hardship. His distinctive accent was a source of ridicule and was sometimes parodied by comedians in England, but those jokes waned when the relentless bombing by Germany devastated areas of London and other major

English cities during the Battle of Britain. His anti-Semitic rants were relentless and he continuously stressed the position that England and Germany should unite against the Communist See JOYCE Page 38

Give a fuss. Get a fuss.

His Persona His broadcasts always began with his instantly recognized accent “Gairmany calling ... Gairmany calling ... Gairmany calling ...” His arrogant and lilting voice would urge the British people to surrender and al-

ways had a sarcastic and jarring tone, given his obvious Irish-English accent, for a Nazi broadcaster. In many instances, just as with Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally, two other prominent Axis broadcasters, the listening audience was fascinated by the information that they received by the broadcasts. Joyce, however, became the most influential Nazi broadcast personage and he and his wife were awarded the Cross of War Merit, First Class, by Adolph Hitler, in 1944. English news was heavily censored and Lord Haw-Haw, many times, revealed information that the public could not otherwise get. At times, some of his broadcasts imparted information that caused him to rise to almost mystical proportions, in stating specific matters not otherwise available. Some folks actually thought he was in England, due to his insightful information, although it was certainly forwarded by German spies in the United Kingdom, thus allowing Joyce to report tidbits of English life and accurate occurrences that unnerved the British authorities. He gained almost a larger-thanlife status in the UK. There were claims that he could predict bombing targets and he imparted detailed information about bombing sites and damage. In fact, however, this was largely due to the English status of censorship and he therefore merely stated known facts some hours earlier than the delayed information provided by the BBC. His broadcasts were, however, always anti-Semitic and many times poked fun at Winston Churchill, the beloved Prime Minister during the war. As to these segments, the audience found his ramblings to be absurd, but his talks, many times, were entertaining and thus relieved the te-

Continued from Page 35 funkhaus (“broadcasting house”). Joyce, as a result of his audition, got a job doing script writing and radio announcements. Joyce became a naturalized German citizen in 1940. At the time, the primary broadcaster was Wolf Mittler. Initially, Mittler was “Lord Haw-Haw,” a phrase coined by the Daily Express radio critic, Jonah Barrington. However, as Joyce became the most recognized and famous German broadcaster, the name was transferred to him, and with him, it stuck. His broadcasting style was described, by Barrington, as “... English of the haw-haw, dammitget-out-of-my-way variety, and his strong suit is gentlemanly indignation.” His broadcasts initially came from Berlin, but due to intense Allied bombing, he later broadcast from Luxemburg and still later from Apen, near Hamburg. The broadcasts were relayed over a network of German stations stretching from Hamburg, Germany to Oslo, Norway, and included Calais, France, just 26 miles across the English Channel from Britain. As his notoriety grew, his audience did also. Although listening to his broadcasts was officially discouraged in Britain, he became immensely popular, with a listening audience in Britain of six million regular, and 18 million occasional, listeners in the United Kingdom. During this time, his listening audience in Britain rivaled even those of the BBC.

WORLD WAR II: LORD HAW-HAW

Joyce last man in Britain to hang for treason Continued from Page 37 threat from the Soviet Union. His duties also included disseminating propaganda to British prisoners-of-war and he sought to enlist them into the “British Free Corps,” a branch of the Waffen SS – a wholly unsuccessful effort. He also was the author of a book, “Twilight Over England,” which compared Socialist Germany to his idea of the evils of a “Jewish-dominated capitalist England.” As the war began to turn inexorably against Germany, Joyce began to drink heavily and his marriage went on the rocks.

The End As previously stated, his last, rambling and nearly incoherent, broadcast was on April 30, 1945, during the Battle for Berlin. Prior to the broadcast, Joyce and the other broadcasting staff had raided the cellars of the Reichsrundfunk and had consumed everything alcoholic they could get their hands on. Rambling on, he chastised the British for carrying out the war beyond the “mere containment” of Germany and repeatedly warned of the Soviet menace. Not knowing the fate of the Führer, he signed off with a defiant, “Heil Hitler, and farewell!”

On May 28, 1945, Joyce was spotted by British intelligence officers, as he sat, disheveled, after gathering firewood at Flensburg, near the German-Danish border. They engaged him in a conversation and his instantly recognized voice betrayed him. As he reached for a false ID in an attempt to prove he was not Joyce, he was shot in the buttocks by the British troops, who thought he was reaching for a gun. He was taken by Jeep to a border military post and turned over to British Military Police and later sent to London to be tried on charges of high treason. The Trial Shortly after his arrival in London, on June 16, 1945, after his recuperation in a Luxemburg hospital, a dilemma ensued. He was, after all, born in the United States, raised in Ireland and then obtained a naturalized citizenship in Germany. However, because he had obtained a British passport, which he had renewed just before leaving Britain in 1939, and which was valid until July 2, 1940, which was after he began his broadcast career in Germany, he was susceptible to the charge of treason under the Treason Act of 1945. Because his British passport afforded

him the protection of the Crown, Joyce therefore owed allegiance to Great Britain as well. The trial took place on Sept. 17, 1945, and lasted only three days. He had been charged with three counts of treason. After the evidence, the judge instructed the jury to find him not guilty on two of the counts related to charges of activity after the expiration of the passport. But the jury found him guilty of the remaining count and he was sentenced to death by hanging – the mandatory sentence for treason. This brought forth widespread unease, since he had not been responsible for one death and the harsh sentence, it was felt, should be reserved for the much more culpable Nazi war criminals. His attorneys filed an appeal on Sept. 27, 1945, which was thereafter heard and denied on Nov. 7, 1945. Due to the important question of law in the matter, the attorney general agreed that the case should be heard before the House of Lords, England’s highest tribunal. A panel of lords dismissed the appeal by a vote of three to one, on Dec. 18, 1945. Joyce was hanged at Wandsworth Prison on Jan. 3, 1946, unrepentant to the end, stating, “In death as in life, I defy the Jews who caused this last

war and I defy the powers of darkness which they represent.” Joyce was the last person in British history to be hanged for treason. He was unceremoniously buried on prison grounds, but on Aug. 18, 1976, his body was exhumed and reinterred in the New Cemetery in Bohermore, County Galway, Ireland, where he lies today.

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) The resort community came together on Tuesday night to congratulate, listen to music and enjoy food and drinks during the seventh annual Ocean City Chamber Awards Celebration at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel on 101st Street. “It was overwhelming to hear the history and personal relationships all of these winners have [with other community members],” said Melanie Pursel, executive director of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce. “The warm remarks about each winner and intimate night made it special for our community.” Members of the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce recognized six local names for their achievements this year. They were Volunteer of the Year Jeff McArthur, of the OC Seasonal Workforce Committee; Young Professional of the Year Matt James, of the Carousel Hotel Group; Non-Profit of the Year Ocean City Development Corporation (OCDC); Citizen of the Year Al “Hondo” Handy, of The Town of Ocean City; Business Person of The Year Steve Green, of The Dispatch; and OC Chamber Lifetime Achievement Award winner Dr. Leonard Berger, of the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau. “Volunteerism is truly heartwarming [in Ocean City],” Pursel said. McArthur was recognized as a “thoughtful and generous person” by his peers on Tuesday night and has opened his Ocean City home to a number of international students. In addition, he started his career by helping combat poverty in North Carolina, was instrumental in planning and implementing the Supplemental Security Income Program for the Aged, Blind and Disabled while on the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Manpower Development Corporation and in 2002 he retired from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Currently, McArthur is on the Board of Directors of the Ocean City Chapter of AARP and an active member of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Seasonal Workforce Committee. “It’s quite an honor and I have enjoyed the recognition,” McArthur said after accepting his award on Tuesday night. “Ocean City takes pride in being the best and the reason is because of all the volunteers we have [in this town].” McArthur explained to the packed room how volunteering makes him happy and he enjoys working with hardworking students.

“These bright students, many who have two or three jobs, have expanded my world view,” McArthur said. “If my efforts somehow help to improve international relations or help to bring world peace — my work is worthwhile.”

James thanked the crowd after receiving his Young Professional of the Year award. Pursel listed “growing as an individual personally and professionally” and being under 40 years old as criteria. See HANDY Page 40

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) A career in real estate can be financially rewarding as well as provide an opportunity to set your own schedule/hours. And while real estate does not require a college education, it does require licensees to complete strict continuing education requirements every two years. In Maryland, to qualify for a real estate salesperson license, an applicant shall meet the following requirements: • An applicant shall be of good character and reputation. • An applicant shall be at least 18 years old. • An applicant shall have completed successfully a basic course in real estate approved by the Real Estate Commission offering 60 clock hours of instruction. Further requirements in order to obtain a real estate license include passing an examination given by the Commission, as well as obtaining a commitment of affiliation from a licensed real estate broker. The commission further states that any applicant shall meet any other requirement that the Commission establishes to ensure that only individuals who are professionally competent and of good character and reputation are licensed. As of Oct. 1, all licensed real estate salespersons and associate brokers must complete the following 15 hours of continuing education every two years: • three hours in legislative • three hours in agency • three hours in ethics • one and a half hours in fair housing • four and a half hours of electives Additionally, there are some changes that go into effect Oct. 1 in an effort to simplify continuing education requirements. The new law mandates 15 hours of continuing education for every renewal by removing from the law an exception for licensees who have earned a graduate degree in real estate or law.

Handy puts ‘spirit and soul’ into work with local youth Continued from Page 39 James grew up working in the hotel family business and currently manages Bonita Beach on 81st Street and Atlantic Oceanfront Inn on 45th Street where he is responsible for operations, financial performance, oversight and management of staff. In 2014, James made history when he was elected to the Ocean City Council, becoming the youngest member ever selected and receiving the most votes among seven candidates. James also serves on the Tourism Commission, the Beach Mediation Board, helps with other Carousel Group properties and volunteers with the Ocean City Fire Department. “He’s dedicated the last eight years responding to calls as an Ocean City firefighter and rescue swimmer,” said Elaine Brady, of the Bayside Gazette and Ocean City Today newspapers, sponsors of James’ award. “He has the respect of everyone of all ages.” The Ocean City Development Corporation received accolades for serving the community the past 15 years and were given the non-profit of the year award. Programs OCDC has implemented have made a tremendous impact on the resort area including the Façade Improvement Program, Public Art Program, two sets of design standards,

land acquisition, employee housing management and special events. The non-profit has expanded its revitalization efforts to the entire Boardwalk in recent years and has partnered with multiple groups in the area to reach as many people as possible. “I was on the council when they formed,” Mayor Rick Meehan said. “They have done a job far beyond what we imagined.” Al “Hondo” Handy received his Citizen of the Year award after peers expressed he was the most “unselfish and caring individual they had ever had the pleasure of knowing.” Dedicating more than 35 years to the Ocean City community, Handy has touched the lives of thousands of children with more than 20 years on the alcohol and drug committee in addition to implementing Play It Safe, a program for recent high school graduates. He received the Citation Award by the Maryland Recreation and Parks Association, promotes sportsmanship through videos and brought national pilot programs to the resort. “I am still surprised,” Handy said. “As a young kid my mother made me understand commitment and I have enjoyed every minute of it [working for the Parks and Recreation Department in Ocean City].” Meehan’s voice broke as he said, “No disrespect to anyone, but I have never been this proud to give a key to the city than to Hondo. He puts spirit,

Steve Green of the Dispatch newspaper began his Business Person of the Year speech with “nights like this are important for our community.” The editor and publisher went on to say media was in his blood, he has found his passion and inspiration and enjoys shining a light on positive stories. In addition to the newspaper, Green is a board member for the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation, gives a scholarship to a graduate at Worcester Prep who is pursuing journalism each spring and raised nearly $7,000 for high school scholarships last year.

Add’l courses for Realtors required Continued from Page 39 More frequent agency and broker supervision course work will also be required, effective with licenses that expire Oct. 1 or thereafter. The law will now require all real estate licensees to take the three-hour agency class every two years, an increase over the old law, which provided for the agency class every four years. Similarly, those licensees required to take the broker supervision threehour class, must do so every two years. — Lauren Bunting is a licensed Realtor/Associate Broker with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Past winners were recognized throughout the night and many wore flowers to highlight their achievements. “I couldn’t have been more proud to be in the room,” Pursel said. “We have an amazing community and our winners were impressive and a deserving group of individuals.”

WP Lady Mallards earn 2-0 shutout over STPP Sabres

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) When the Worcester Prep and Saints Peter & Paul girls’ soccer teams last went head-to-head, the Sabres scored with less than a minute left on the clock in double overtime to win the 2014 Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship. The Lady Mallards remember the heartbreaking loss suffered on Oct. 27 and they have been looking forward to stepping on the field against their conference rival again. “Saints Peter & Paul should watch out because we’re coming for them,” senior captain Grace Tunis said during a preseason practice a few weeks ago. The Mallards hosted the Sabres on Monday, and after 40 minutes of play the game was scoreless heading into the halftime break. “We started slow and at halftime we were like ‘this is your game to take. This is it. We rarely say this, but you’re a better team and we have to play like a better team,’” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett. “They just held their shoulders high and just sort of took over. They were playing our kind of soccer instead of just reactionary soccer.” Six minutes into the second half, freshman Delaney Abercrombie dribbled down the right sideline and crossed the ball to senior captain Julia D’Antonio, who was open in front of the goal. D’Antonio played the ball to the far post to give Worcester a 1-0 lead. “Delaney was dribbling down and I called for the ball because I was open. She passed it to me and I just did a one touch and it was in,” D’Antonio said. “[The goalie] was in the middle and I placed it right on the left.” Her father, Anthony, is the team’s assistant coach and D’Antonio said that he is “always on us about ‘look at the goalie before you shoot,’ because the one thing you don’t want to do is shoot right at her because you’ve got such a wide open goal and it’s one-onone.” D’Antonio said it was a great feeling to put her team on the board. “It was really exciting. We definitely needed it,” she said. “We definitely got fired up. We were pumped.” With 20 minutes remaining in the game, the Mallards scored their second goal on an identical play, something D’Antonio said the team consistently practices.

LISA CAPITELLI/OCEAN CITY TODAY

Worcester Prep junior Julie Talbert controls the ball out of the air during Monday's competition against Saints Peter & Paul.

“We do a lot of fast-break drills and work a lot with our passing and crossing,” she said. Practice paid off for the squad. Senior Laura Issel sprinted with the ball down the right sideline and played it across the goal mouth to junior Madison Bescak who was wide open. Bescak knocked the ball in the left corner of the goal. “This is definitely a huge win because it’s our rival team and we always go neck-and-neck in the championship. I think this definitely shows where we are and what we can do,” D’Antonio said. Worcester’s goalies, both freshmen, made some key stops to hold the

Sabres scoreless. “I feel like I’m pretty blessed because not a lot of freshmen get to start in general, and the fact that I’m starting in goal is really nice. I’m just really happy we won,” said goalie Grace Gardner, who recorded five saves. “I was a little nervous but then I saw my team was really helping me out, getting balls out and then from there I felt pretty confident. I think we did really well. It’s a big win especially on our home field and we hope to do the same in Easton.” Julia Godwin took over in the goal with about 15 minutes left in the competition. She stopped four Saints Peter & Paul shots.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) Members of Worcester Prep’s new cross country program competed in their first meet on Wednesday and the Mallards did exceptionally well in their debut. “I thought everyone did an amazing job. Every single person on the team ran their personal best,” said Prep Coach Keith Geiger. “I was so proud of the team. We had some people who couldn’t run the three miles in practice and they stepped up and finished the race. We also had several students being competitive.” The Lady Mallards scored 76 points, finishing third overall in the nine-school competition in Salisbury behind second-place Snow Hill (48) and winners, Stephen Decatur (28). Sophomore Lillybelle Baker was the first Prep runner to cross the finish line. She placed eighth overall (24:36) out of 65 runners. Annemarie Cherry, a sophomore, and senior Lauren Dykes finished 12th (24:46) and 13th (24:51), respectively. Also scoring points for Worcester was sophomore Marissa Grosso (24th, 25:49) and senior Sarah Koon, (29th, 26:37). Worcester’s boys’ team finished in fourth place with 100 points. Decatur won the competition with 25 points, followed by Nandua (82) and Parkside (85). Junior Carter Hill led the Mallards, crossing the finish line second overall (17:12). Junior Trent Marshall (19th, 19:44), sophomores Connor Cebula (24th, 20:48) and Matt Wilson (25th, 20:55) and freshman Jack Walinskas (51st, 23:54) also scored points for Worcester. The next meet is scheduled for Tuesday in Salisbury at 3 p.m. “As a group, everybody played very well. Our theme is to play together, play for each other and that’s what they’re doing,” Hartnett said. “Our girls really stepped up. The win is huge. When do we win against Saints Peter & Paul with a shutout? … The sign on their locker said what we have to do today is ‘find the back of the net, and success is not given it’s got to be earned.’ They earned it today.” The Prep team’s next game is Friday, Sept. 25 against the Salisbury School Dragons at 4 p.m. in Berlin. The Mallards will battle the Sabres again on Friday, Oct. 2 in Easton at 4 p.m.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) The Stephen Decatur and Worcester Prep golf teams competed in the first round of their annual Ryder Cup tournament on Monday at GlenRiddle Golf Club in Berlin, and the squads are tied, 4-4, going into the final competition on Tuesday.

Decatur football team logs 21-13 victory over Wi-Hi

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) The Stephen Decatur football team improved their record to 2-0 with a 21-13 victory over the Wicomico Indians last Saturday in Salisbury. “At times we played well and at times we let up for whatever reason,” said Decatur Coach Bob Knox. “We can be a good football team if we keep the pedal to the metal.” About 30 seconds into the second quarter, senior captain Dryden Brous scored from four yards out to put Decatur on the board. The Seahawks went into the halftime break ahead 7-0. After a delay of about an hour and 10 minutes because of lightning, the teams returned to the field. Wi-Hi evened the score less than two minutes into the third quarter. Brous ran the ball 11 yards for a touchdown with about five minutes remaining in the quarter and the Seahawks led 14-7. The Indians cut the advantage to one in the fourth quarter, but Brous anSee BROUS Page 60

The first four matches were partners Best Ball format for five holes. Worcester Prep, a private school of the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference, won three of the four matches. Earning victories for the Mallards were pairs, sophomore Austin Taylor/junior Jon Ruddo, senior Bennett Truitt/junior Thomas Polk and junior Grant Brown/freshman Jacob Meakin. The team of junior captain Matt Kristick and sophomore Matt Kinsey earned the lone win for Decatur, a public school of the Bayside Conference, in the Best Ball competition. The second four matches were partners Alternate Shot for five holes. Decatur earned victories in three of the four matches to even the score 4-4. Partners, junior Tanner Leonard/freshman Hayden Snelsire, junior Hailey Brown/freshman Emily Malinowski and juniors Bailey Warren/Jamie Wilkinson logged victories for the Seahawks. “Aside from my two returners (Kristick and Kinsey) the rest of the team succumbed to the pressure of the better ball match,” said Decatur Coach Jim Krall. “However, they all came back to even the score with a victory in the alternate shot format. It was that ‘never give up’ attitude that Coach [Don] Furbay and I like the most.” Worcester’s pair of senior captains Jason Cook and John Meakin tallied their team’s only Alternate Shot victory. “It was exciting. Worcester Prep had the momentum after going up 31, then Decatur had it after Alternate Shot,” said Prep Coach Scot Dailey. “I thought everyone played OK. Both teams experienced lots of nerves. For some, it was their first time in a situation like this.” The two teams will meet again on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. at Eagle’s Land-

ing in Berlin for eight singles, ninehole, one-on-one exhibitions. It should be an exciting final,” Dailey said. “We need to play consistent, let the mistakes go and move onto the next shot and the next hole.” For Decatur to be successful, Krall said, “we need to jump out in front from the beginning, not only for the comfort zone, but also to cause their opponents to take risks and force shots they normally wouldn’t hit.” Players and coaches enjoy participating in the Ryder Cup tournament each year. “I think everyone from coaches to players on Worcester and Decatur

would agree that match play is more exciting than stroke play when the two teams are equally talented such as our two squads,” Krall said. “The competition is amazing and really fun to watch, plus there’s a stronger feeling of ‘teamwork’ in the Ryder Cup formats.” “It’s so much fun. The kids all know each other and they really enjoy it. It’s a nice, friendly rivalry,” Dailey added. “Stephen Decatur has definitely dominated the [Ryder Cup]. They have set the bar in the area for golf programs. Coach Krall deserves a lot of credit for the successful program at Stephen Decatur.”

SD volleyball gets win over Pocomoke, but falls to JMB By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team faced off against two of its Bayside Conference opponents this week. The Lady Seahawks topped the Pocomoke Warriors in three games, but they lost a hard-fought battle, 3-2, to the James M. Bennett Clippers. On Monday, Decatur hosted Pocomoke and pulled out a 25-23 victory in the first game. “The team had a hard time focusing and working together. Plus, our serving was off,” Decatur Coach Sara Patrick said. “The second game was an improvement. By the third game, we looked more like the team that took North Caroline to five games last week.” The Seahawks outscored the Warriors 25-17 in the second game and 259 in the third. After the first game, Patrick thought the girls started working together better and did well covering and being a strong presence at the net. Senior Lauren Laque had nine aces. Junior Lexi Fleeger tallied two aces, two kills and five digs. Hannah Saulsbury, a senior, logged three aces and two kills. Bennett traveled to Berlin two days later to take on Decatur. The home team edged out its opponent 25-22 in the first game. The Clippers took the second game, 25-11, but the Seahawks

to let the other team move the ball.” The defense was led by senior captain Ernest Shockley with 13 tackles. Junior Ed Zonnak and senior Cole Barrett made eight and seven tackles, respectively. Knox said the players on his team this year are a “good group of kids.” “They fight and they compete. That’s what it’s all about,” he said. “We’re getting better every day. As long as we get better, good things will happen.” Decatur will host the Easton Warriors tonight, Friday, at 6 p.m. in Berlin. When the two teams met last October in Easton, the Warriors won their homecoming game 34-33 in overtime. “It’s nice to be 2-0 and hopefully we can keep the ball rolling Friday when we play Easton,” Knox said.

answered in the third, winning 25-15. Bennett earned a 25-22 victory in the fourth game. Decatur built a 6-1 lead in the fifth game, but the visiting squad fought back to within one point. With Bennett ahead 14-13 and one point from the win, a kill by Saulsbury tied it up. Bennett scored the next two points to win 16-14. “Overall, I am super proud of the girls. They played their hearts out and worked really well as a team,” Patrick said. “In the games we won, you could definitely see their focus and teamwork. We tried to excel at the fundamentals and let the other team make mistakes. The girls played smarter, not harder, by covering behind the block, moving on the court and keeping their serves in bounds.” In the first two games Decatur lost, Patrick said the girls allowed a few mistakes to get to them. “The doubt and frustration they were feeling got the best of them,” she said. “The fifth game was a hard-fought battle. With only 15 points to win, any mistake can cost the game.” Decatur senior captain Ellen Bargar had five kills, six assists and two aces. Taylor Lago, a senior, recorded five blocks, four kills and two aces and Fleeger contributed seven aces, two kills and four assists. Laque dug six hits. Decatur will host the North Dorchester Eagles on Monday at 5:15 p.m.

‘Intense defensive game’ between WP and SC

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) After 80 minutes of regulation play and two 10-minute overtime periods, Wednesday’s boys’ soccer game between Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, Worcester Prep and Salisbury Christian, ended in a draw. “It was an intense defensive game. Both teams played hard,” said Prep Coach Terry Underkoffler. “It was a total team effort. We tackled the ball well and challenged the ball in the air.” Host Salisbury had a few scoring op-

portunities in the first 20 minutes of the game. Underkoffler said the Mallards settled down and had several chances of their own to score, but they were unsuccessful at putting the ball in the net. “I thought the first 20 minutes we played a little tentative,” Underkoffler said. “We got our confidence back in the second half and took it to them.” Scoreless after 80 minutes, the game went into overtime. Worcester junior Brendan Miller came up big for his team with a diving header to clear the ball away from the goal after a Salisbury corner kick in the

second overtime. “He’s incredibly solid in the back,” Underkoffler said. “He’s been playing outstanding.” Miller played on the forward line last season, but was moved to sweeper in the defensive end this year. Both teams had opportunities to win the match, but neither capitalized. Underkoffler also praised the defensive efforts of senior Ross Dickerson and freshman Cole Berry. They took turns marking 2014 conference MVP, Ryan Spadin, and held him to just two shots. Underkoffler said competitions

against Salisbury Christian are one of Worcester’s best and most challenging, and Wednesday’s match was no different. Each year, the two teams meet twice during the regular season and for a third time, typically, in the ESIAC championship finals. Underkoffler said this week’s match was the second best defensive effort against Salisbury since he started coaching the team four seasons ago. The first was in the 2013 championship when Worcester won 2-1. “It’s always a good game, always an intense rivalry,” he said.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Sept. 18, 2015) The Stephen Decatur boys’ and girls’ cross country teams took top honors during last Wednesday’s season opener on the Seahawks’ course in Berlin. Six schools participated. “I thought the boys and girls did pretty well for the first meet. The weather conditions were pretty brutal that day, it was really hot so the times were not great,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. “I thought the top three girls and top four boys ran pretty well, especially the winners Alison [Alvarado] and Javier [Hernandez]. I think that our teams will be strong this year, but we really need to work on our spread from runners 1-7 on both sides.” The first four runners to cross the finish line in the boys’ race were from Decatur. Hernandez, a junior, won the competition. He completed the 5K in 20 minutes. Sophomore Jack Reimer finished second, 29.3 seconds behind Hernandez. Juniors Jared Massey and Cameron James came in third (21:39.1) and fourth (22:41.9), respectively. Matt Alvarado, a sophomore, finished eighth overall (24:40.5). The Decatur boys’ squad scored 18 points for first place. James M. Bennett was second with 55 points and Washington took third with 81 points. The Lady Seahawks won the competition with 24 points, followed by Snow Hill (54) and Bennett (57). Alvarado led the Decatur girls’ squad, completing the race in 25:04.4, good for first place. Peyton Dunham, a junior, finished in second (25:27.8) and senior Rachel Savage, third (26:03.9). Sophomore Maya Knepp was the seventh runner overall to cross the fin-

ish line (28:20.6). Lily Watsky, a senior, also scored points for Decatur, placing 10th overall (29:13.6). Both Decatur squads also won the Sept. 16 nine-school meet in Salisbury. The Lady Seahawks scored 28 points to finish first. Snow Hill placed second with 48 points and Worcester Prep, competing in its first-ever cross country meet, took third (76). Contributing to the Decatur victory Wednesday was Savage (second, 23:15), Watsky (fourth, 23:42), Knepp (sixth, 23:57), junior Emma Leo (seventh, 24:31) and freshman Davina Graybill (ninth, 24:39). Hernandez crossed the finish line first, completing the boys’ race in 16:55. Also scoring points for Decatur was Massey (third, 17:51), Reimer (fourth, 17:51) James (fifth, 18:01) and Alvarado (12th, 18:52).

The Seahawks logged 25 points to take top honors. Nandua was second with 82 points and Parkside finished in third (85). “Overall, I think we did pretty well. Our first three girls all got lost, so we probably should have done a little better on the girls side but still managed to finish on top. Again, the top few boys ran well,” Stigler said. “We need to continue to work on closing our gap between our top 10 or so runners, but I think we were a little bit more consistent from 1-7 than last week. We will need to have a good week of practice and improve upon this result because we will be facing some traditionally tough schools from the Bayside North next week at home.” Decatur will host the next meet, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m.

cate meighan inside going out hat a difference one single week can make. Seven days ago the local kids were heading back to school and the humidity was stifling. Now, it’s actually chilly and the sky has that darker blue look that always accompanies fall weather. I’ve actually been an OCMD resident for an entire year (finally) and it has been an absolutely amazing experience. Whether I’m stuck in traffic on Route 90 at the height of tourist season or looking at an empty, icy beach in February wishing for warmer weather, I’m always grateful to be here. One thing that I’ve learned in the last few weeks is that while all of the tourists have left (for the most part), Ocean City is still a very busy place to be, even while the seasons are changing. The seventh annual Brews on the Beach took place last Saturday at Hooper’s Crab House under the big tent in West Ocean City. It was on an afternoon dominated by downpours and for a short while, even a tornado warning was in effect. I stopped in before the weather turned into a real mess and what I found was representatives from 15 local and regional breweries that were genuinely happy to be there. There were at least 75 varieties of craft beer to try, including brews from Fin City, Burley Oak and OC Brewing. Vince Wright of Fin City expressed the same sentiments that I heard from everyone that I spoke with, business is going very well and he loved having a chance to pour drinks while chatting with the general public. I think that even if you’re living with your head buried in the sand you probably still must realize that we’re now smack in the middle of OC BikeFest. The inlet parking lot and Ocean City convention center located on 40th Street and Coastal Highway are playing temporary home to various bands, stunt shows, vendors and of course, bike lovers from all over the country from now until Sunday, Sept. 20.

OC hub for motorcycle enthusiasts Thousands anticipated to come to town this weekend for assortment of activities

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) OC BikeFest, Bikes to the Beach Fall Rally and Delmarva Bike Week will draw thousands of people to the resort and the surrounding areas this weekend as the annual events feature an assortment of activities. Here are some of the festivities taking place for motorcycle aficionados: • OC BikeFest: BikeFest rolls into town for its fifth year with live music, vendors and action shows at two main sites, the inlet downtown and the 40th Street convention center. Festivities began yesterday bringing names such as Rommel HarleyDavidson, S&S Cycle, Sick Boy, LEDS and more than 50 vendors to the resort in both locations. Downtown events were scheduled to kicked off with almost 400 motor-

cycles taking part in the “Thunder on the Boardwalk” parade yesterday morning to officially open the BikeFest gates at 11 a.m. Customization in America will host a three-day bike show featuring award-winning custom bikes with unique designs from nationally-recognized East Coast builders, through Saturday at the inlet. Visitors can meet the artists or enter their own bikes in the show. The two competition classes are freestyle and custom retro with the chance to win $4,000 in cash.

The live auction will take place around 6 p.m. tonight, Friday, on the Ocean Stage at the inlet with proceeds benefiting the Hogs and Heroes non-profit organization. Visitors at the inlet can also enjoy a NASCAR simulator that gives riders the experience of racing in a full-size car through an interactive game.

The downtown stage will feature live music by REO Speedwagon tonight at 6:30 p.m. and the Doobie Brothers rock out on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. Other acts include Kashmir, Big Engine, Porch 40 and Higher Education.

It’s the best event we have going in the offseason and hopefully the weather will be nice.” Local American Legion Post 166 will host its annual poker run and Thunder Roads magazine will hold an event Saturday at Hooper’s.

Rosenfeld’s Jewish Deli on 63rd Street and Coastal Highway will be open for Yom Kippur, both for the Kol Nidre meal and also for the breakfast. Rosenfeld’s new food truck is just about ready to roll. Warren Rosenfeld tells me that on Tuesday, Sept. 22, the truck will be at the Milton Truckin’ Tuesday event in Milton, Del. It’s the first step toward his dream of serving some of Rosenfeld’s Jewish Deli’s best sandwiches at remote locations all over Delmarva. If you’re looking for a memorable fine dining experience then you’ll want to check out Fager’s Island on 60th Street, bayside. The dining room upstairs overlooking the bay lays the visual groundwork for a special evening or you can also keep it casual out on the main deck. Fager’s capitalizes on the whole beach theme by hosting an “Island Time Beach Party” every Tuesday through Sunday from 2-6 p.m. It includes $5 food and drink specials that feature crushes, island wines, wings, tenders and fish tacos.

clams and Chincoteague oysters are all under $6.50 and all crab are steamed to order. If you’re a little bit happy to see the summer fade away because that means football season is upon us, then you’re probably going to want to partake in NFL Freakin Insanity at Pizza Tugos Tap Room on the corner of routes 50 and 611 in West Ocean City. It is officially team neutral for NFL worshipers. You can catch the game on the new 75” HDTVs and enjoy all-you-can-eat wings and pizza for just $9.99. Plus, Pizza Tugos has one of the best craft beer selections in the area! Check out more info at www.pizzatugos.com. Fat Fish OC at 12703 Sunset Avenue in West Ocean City is also hoping to lure in some of this week’s Bike Week visitors by hosting a biker brunch on Friday, Sept. 18 and Saturday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. There will also be extra tables set up outside to accommodate a large crowd.

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 Greene Turtle West offers up live entertainment from local artists. Check out more information at www.thegreeneturtle.com. If you’re in town for OC BikeFest then I’d suggest you take some time to check out Berlin, located just a few minutes away from downtown Ocean City. There is a reason that this historic area was officially named “America’s Coolest Small Town” in 2014 and if you ask any of the locals why, they’ll be sure to rattle off at least five different reasons. Aside from being the antique capital of the Eastern Shore, Main Street in Berlin is alive with specialty shops. It also features some of the best restaurants around, all within walking distance of historic Main Street. Check out www.berlinmainstreet.com for more information on this great little town and all that it has to offer. Summer may have ended but there is still quite a bit going on here in OCMD.

130TH ST. IN THE MONTEGO BAY SHOPPING CENTER

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Visit beautiful private residences in Ocean City and the surrounding areas during the Art League of Ocean City’s 11th annual Sandcastle Home Tour slated for next Thursday and Friday, Sept. 24-25, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The self-guided tour takes participants to a variety of homes at their own pace from oceanfront to bayside in the resort, West Ocean City, Lighthouse Sound in Bishopville and Ocean Pines with proceeds benefiting the Ocean City Center for the Arts on 94th Street. “It’s something different to do and a great way to spend a day with friends, as a couple or with a group,” said Rina Thaler, executive director of the Art League of Ocean City. “At the same time, you are supporting the arts and helping to promote Ocean City as an arts destination.” The event is limited to the first 1,000 people. The cost is $30, with 11 homes featured on the tour including a new oceanfront condominium in the Gateway Grand on 48th Street. “It always sells out, although there are usually tickets the day before or on the day of,” Thaler said. Limiting the number of tickets makes it exclusive, eliminates lines at the houses and allows for a route to follow, she added. “Home tours are powerful and are highlighted by the generosity of people who open their homes to the public,” Thaler said. There will be 300 volunteer docents who will staff each home during the two-day event and answer questions about the residence. “The tour provides great decorating ideas…” Thaler said. The First Lady of Maryland and avid art supporter, Yumi Hogan, will be the honorary chair for this year’s Sandcastle Home Tour. “For many years, the Art League of

Ocean City strived very hard to create a special communal place for its residents to pursue arts, inspire themselves and find resources in their hometown,” Hogan stated in a release. “The newly-built Ocean City Center for the Arts has made those wishes come true for many artists and will inspire the growth of new talent in the art scene.” Along the same lines, the home tour helped fund the creation of the twoyear-old Arts Center on 94th Street and continues to benefit the non-profit with ticket sales going toward sustaining the building and providing programs. “It has grown so much and is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” Thaler said.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Hand-dipped chocolate strawberries easy to make By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) It is truly fascinating how we as a society justify assumption. One might argue it is plausible to take for granted what one knows; however, the realm of reality is not always actuality. Therefore, certainty of truth can be up for debate. For some, the thought of grocery shopping is a mere passing that facilitates the need for our daily bread. Racing to the grocery store and purchasing items in record fashion equates time to move on to more pertinent matters. This weekly chore is a necessity and does not constitute a pleasurable experience. But these sentiments are not shared by all. There are those whose sensorial encounter comes alive in the presence of the bounties we are about to receive. A trip to the supermarket can be nothing short of pure pleasure; a cornucopia of gorgeous vegetables and stunning fruits can indeed be mesmerizing. Each one is an incredible feat and adoration simmers with each passing thought. How many times has one eaten a strawberry without giving it a second thought. If you were to deconstruct the path of maturity, one would take in a world of knowledge and wonder. An intrigued foodie would question where did this luscious fruit originate? How many seeds are on the outside skin? Are strawberries considered an actual berry? On that note, let us delve into the allure and intricacies of this sweet, popular produce. Records indicate strawberries grew wild in Italy dating back to 234 B.C. But it was not until the late 13th century that they were first cultivated. Here in the United States, early settlers found Native Americans growing them as early as 1643. After 1860, strawberries were widely grown in the U.S. and considered a popular commodity. Strawberries belong to the genus Fragaria which is a member of the rose family. Botanists do not classify the strawberry as a true berry; true berries have seeds inside. A strawberry has approximately 200 seeds on the outside (each of which is technically considered a separate fruit). Strawberries have long been associated with love. At wedding breakfasts in provincial France, newlyweds traditionally were served a soup of thinned sour cream, strawberries, borage and powdered sugar. According to Berry Fun Facts, if all the strawberries produced in California in one year were laid berry to berry, they would wrap around the world 17 times.

Do not wash strawberries until ready to use. They can easily become waterlogged. So wash them quickly and make sure they are dried thoroughly. Food for thought: Do not take food for granted. Each wondrous blessing has its own unique, culinary story. Also, we are very fortunate when it comes to food and thankfulness should begin with every meal. That being said, hand-dipped chocolate strawberries are simple to make and add a flavor of exquisiteness to any occasion. A garnish of powdered sugar and baby’s breath is the piece de resistance and sets the tone for a memorable occasion. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 pound fresh strawberries 2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate ½ cup (3 ounces) white chocolate, optional for drizzling powdered sugar as a garnish baby’s breath as a garnish * You will need a double-boiler or a heatproof bowl with saucepan. 1.

Sprinkle strawberries with powdered sugar and serve Continued from Page 73 tly pat dry with paper towels. They need to be completely dry before dipping. 2. Fill the bottom of the doubleboiler or saucepan with two inches of water and bring the water to a simmer. Place the chocolate into the top of the double-boiler or heatproof bowl and place over the simmering water. Allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally, until no more lumps remain. Remove the bowl with the chocolate from the heat. 3. Set the bowl of melted chocolate in front of you on a heat resistant surface. Place the dried strawberries to your left. Line a baking sheet with parchment and place it to your right. (Reverse order if you are lefthanded). 4. Working with one strawberry at a time, grasp the strawberry by the top leaves and dip it into the chocolate. Turn or swirl the strawberry as needed to completely coat with chocolate. Lift the strawberry and gently shake to remove any excess chocolate. 5. Carefully lay the dipped strawberry on its side on the baking sheet. Repeat the dipping process with the remaining strawberries.

6. Allow the strawberries to sit until the chocolate coating is set and dry to touch. If time is of the essence, you can put the baking sheet in the refrigerator to speed this along. 7. When the chocolate is firm, melt the white chocolate in 10-second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each 10-second interval. 8. Transfer the melted white chocolate to a small Ziploc bag. Push the melted white chocolate to one corner of the bag, then snip a tiny corner off the bag. Squeezing the bag gently; drizzle the white chocolate over the strawberries. Use big sweeps, moving back and forth over the entire baking sheet. 9. Let the white chocolate set or place in the refrigerator again for several minutes. 10. Just before serving, sprinkle strawberries with powdered sugar and garnish with baby’s breath. *Chocolate-covered strawberries can be refrigerated for several days, but after 24 hours the presentation starts to decline.

Annual OC Sunfest celebration begins Thurs. Four-day festival features arts and crafts, food and musical entertainment

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) One of Ocean City’s favorite events returns to the resort next Thursday as locals and visitors bid farewell to summer and welcome fall with four days of arts and crafts, live entertainment, food and family fun at the 41st annual Sunfest. The festival kicks off Thursday, Sept. 24, in the inlet parking lot under large tents with more than 250 vendors and food booths selling treasures and tasty treats all weekend long, Sept. 24-27. Sunfest drew more than 200,000 visitors to the downtown area last

year and about the same attendance is expected next weekend. “With how great the summer has been and what the town has done, we expect a successful Sunfest this year,” said Frank Miller, special events director for the Town of Ocean City. “It has become a family tradition and is the anchoring event to celebrate the season.” The festival kicks off its 41st year at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, with a parade down the Boardwalk from 13th Street at the Beach Plaza Hotel to the inlet featuring Stephen Decatur

High School’s marching band, cheerleaders and choir in addition to Ocean City fire trucks. At the conclusion of the parade, Sunfest will open at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:15 a.m. led by Mayor Rick Meehan with performances by the marching band, cheerleaders and choir members. “One of the greatest things about Sunfest is that there is something for everyone,” said Jessica Waters, communications manager for the Town of Ocean City. “Whether you are going

Three ticketed performances will start at 8 p.m. each night, Thursday through Saturday, with Tony Orlando kicking off shows with his rock and pop hits Thursday. Tickets cost $15$35. On Friday, country and folk music fans will flock to the stage to see Wynonna and the Big Noise perform. Tickets cost $25-$50. Then next Saturday, 90’s alternative rock bands the Gin Blossoms and Spin Doctors take the Sunfest stage. Ticket prices range from $25-$60. “We have had outstanding headliners in the past and I think this year’s Sunfest headliners continue to bring great talent to the beach,” Waters said. “The Gin Blossoms and The Spin Doctors bring a new generation of talent to the Sunfest tents, adding a 90’s flavor to the stage that we haven’t had before.” See SOMETHING Page 77

Reduction in beach patrol personnel yearly occurrence

JOIN THE WORLD FAMOUS HOOTERS GIRLS FOR BIKE WEEK 2015!

By Kristin Joson Contributing Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) I don’t think anyone will argue that the fall is a great time to be in Ocean City. Many people look forward to the fantastic beach weather, surfing and fishing. This is the time of year when people also think they can start taking their dogs on the beach. Some are even surprised that we still have lifeguards on duty. You might be surprised to know that many beach visitors are under the impression that the beach patrol and all of the beach rules end after Labor Day. The reality is, for the past 45 years and possibly longer, the OCBP has never gone off duty following Labor Day. The earliest the beach patrol has gone off duty for the season has been the Sunday of Sunfest weekend (usually the third weekend following Labor Day). This year the patrol will end the regular guarding of the beach on Sunday Sept. 27. During the period following Labor Day, as Ocean City Beach Patrol personnel return to other obligations, we are in a reduced coverage scheme, and the number of Surf Rescue Technicians (lifeguards) available to staff the stands along the 10 miles of beach decreases. The Ocean City Beach Patrol is committed to provide Surf Rescue Technicians along the entire beach for all visitors and residents so rather than have unguarded areas the number of available lifeguard towers are equally distributed along the beach front. As this redistribution occurs

the location and distance between stands changes (sometimes on a daily basis). This reduction in personnel is an annual occurrence but is complicated by the earlier start of college classes and the return of our education professionals to school systems throughout the United States and the late Labor Day. We will have additional returning Surf Rescue Technicians to allow us to increase the total number of stands (and decrease the distance between stands) on weekends. Our main message this time of the year is to please swim in front of a lifeguard. Because of the dedication and commitment of these public servants, we will continue to provide daily coverage between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. for all 10 miles of Ocean City beach until Sunday, Sept. 27. Although this coverage will be done with fewer personnel and less lifeguard towers (than during the summer), we will supplement this coverage by increasing the number of Mobil Rescue Units patrolling the beach. These mobile units are first-aid and AED equipped with one SRT (rider) acting as the primary rescue swimmer while the other SRT (driver) maintains radio communication and backup during an emergency. Both are qualified as surf rescue technicians, medical first responders and are quad (ATV) certified. Please walk to the nearest guard tower before going in the water. As far as the rules go (Town of Ocean City ordinances), most remain in effect until Sept 30. The specific ordnance regarding dogs, states that dogs are not permitted on the beach or Boardwalk from May 1 to Sept. 30. Other ordinances and laws such as

ON GUARD

OCBP asks beachgoers to always swim near lifeguard public drinking, vehicles on beach and fires on beach, remain in effect throughout the year. Another difference in the beach during the fall season is surfing. Ocean City Beach Patrol Capt. Butch Arbin will allow modified surfing along the entire beach, except where guards are posted. The beach patrol keeps the swimmers in front or near their stand and the surfers are encouraged to congregate away from the swimmers. This is a time of the year the surfers enjoy. They can surf while the patrol is on duty and not be confined to designated surfing beaches like they are during the summer. Surfers must still utilize an ankle leash and remain 50 yards from the nearest swimmer. Having surfers in the vicinity often proves valuable in saving lives. It is helpful to have the extra floatation devices in the water at this time of year when the coverage is spread over larger spans of beach. It is not unusual for surfers to aid a distressed swimmer and keep them afloat until a Surf Rescue Technician can reach them and take them safely back to shore. Although surfing is modified, the

beach patrol still reserves the right to prohibit surfing in certain areas or under certain conditions. By enactment of section 106-94 (11) the City Council allows the use of SUPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning on the Monday following Labor Day, on any day that surfing is modified. There are specific requirements included in the ordinance and can be accessed on the towns website. The use of skim boards and other watercraft (kite surfers, windsurfers, kayaks, etc) is still prohibited. SRTs will be on duty daily between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. To aide your SRT, the beach patrol suggests taking extra precautions and make sure to walk the short distance to the nearest lifeguard stand and check in with the Surf Rescue Technician and always swim in the vicinity of the SRT on duty. The first priority of the Ocean City Beach Patrol continues to be public safety. We strongly encourage all beach patrons to restrict any beach or water related activities to times when beach patrol personnel are on duty, never swim alone, always stay with the limits of their ability and never rely on a flotation device.

SDHS alum Jimmy Charles ‘very busy man’

By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) Everything is coming full circle for Eastern Shore native Jimmy Charles. The singer/songwriter, whose career was launched in part by appearances on popular television shows including American Idol

and Nashville Star, recently became the spokesperson for prostate cancer nonprofit ZeroCancer.org thanks to his hit single “Superman.” On Sunday, Sept. 20, Charles will perform during the 9th annual ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge/Baltimore, sponsored by Chesapeake Urology, at

Towson University. The event includes 10K and 5K races, a 1-mile fun walk and a Kids Superhero Dash for Dad. Born in Wilmington, Del., the 35year-old moved to the area at a young age. He grew up in and around Ocean City, Berlin and Ocean Pines, and graduated from Stephen Decatur

High School in 1998. Seven years ago he moved to Nashville, the music nerve center of the country – if not the world. At first, it wasn’t an easy transition. “It’s the all stars,” Charles said. “It’s difficult because the venues don’t want to pay – people will actually pay the venues sometimes just for an opportunity to play in Nashville in hopes of being discovered.” During those early days, Charles said he played “every honkytonk in town.” “A lot of people move to this town, and a lot of people move out real fast,” he said. “It’s broken me down, but it shows if you really want it or not.” In 2010, Charles caught his first big break, appearing on Season 9 of American Idol. “That was the most exciting and nerve-racking experience of my life, both at the same time,” he said. “I had been out in Nashville for over a year. All of a sudden, boom, I got a ticket to Hollywood. I was on the commercials so people knew I was going to be on, and they started talking about me before I even went out there on some of the local radio stations. It brought a lot of attention to what I had been doing, and I still have a lot of people that follow my career from there.” Charles didn’t win Season 9, but the lessons he learned helped him on the road to “Superman.” Several years later, thanks to a connection with Chesapeake Urology – he had attended nearby Towson University – Charles was asked to play a benefit for the nonprofit. “I had made some friends at Chesapeake Urology that had been following my career ever since I left Baltimore, and they asked me just to come perform,” he said. “I do as many charity events as I can without becoming a charity case myself, and I just volunteered to be a part of the races that they have.” A week after he was invited to perform, Zero Cancer asked Charles to write a song that could convince men to have their prostates checked. “I said, ‘what?’ How am I going to say that? Do I make it into a joke? Then I started to think about it, and I realized that there was a huge opportunity here,” he said. Charles had been touched by cancer, having lost family members, including his own father last year. Then, Zero Cancer connected Charles with a local champion of the cause, Phil Shulka, a stage-three cancer survivor. “He was given a very slim chance of making it, but he battled through and he is now eight years out, cancer free,” Charles said. “He is now a mentor at Chesapeake Urology. His only job is to wake up in the morning and, if they have someone that has just been diagnosed with cancer, he will go to their bedsides, he will give them

Charles to perform hit song, ‘Superman,’ during Sun. event phone calls, and he will say, ‘hey, I’m living proof that you can beat this.’” Charles had found his “Superman.” He flew Shulka to Nashville and, with the help of songwriting partner Goose Gossett, penned the song that would change his life. Last year he played the song live for the first time during the annual Baltimore Zero event. Then, almost a year later, on Sept. 1, 2015, the video for the song debuted on CMT. It was a long, hard road, from Wilmington, to Ocean City, to Baltimore, to Nashville, but Charles had arrived. “I am a very, very busy man all of the sudden,” he said. “I remember waking up in the morning and being so frustrated because there was so many things I wanted to do and I just couldn’t do them. You need money to do certain things. You need a song like this. Now I wake up in the morning and I’m going to radio stations. I’ve got phone interviews. It’s all kinds of stuff. I just got back from Cincinnati and I’m about to leave Nashville tomorrow and I won’t be back until October.” On the morning the video debuted Charles posted links on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, then sat back and watched the world literally vibrate. “With American Idol there was some cool stuff that happened, definitely,” he said. “I got a lot more traction, and a lot of phone calls, a lot of text messages. But when this happened I thought my phone was literally going to explode. “It was a great feeling because I had worked so hard in Nashville for seven years to never give up and to fight through – it just feels so great,” Charles continued. “And with a song like this, it’s not just some summertime beer-drinking song. This is something that I get to go out and save people’s lives and create awareness and touch people. It’s truly been amazing.” With the success of the song, Charles was asked to be the national spokesperson for Zero Cancer, and has now performances lined up across the country. Still, despite his globetrotting, he said this weekend’s

concert in Baltimore would be particularly special. “Baltimore is like my homecoming – it’s where everything started,” he said. “I’ve already sang it for them and they’ve already been introduced to it, but it is a homecoming for me. Ocean City and Baltimore – that’s my hometown.” Charles also teased an upcoming performance south of the Bay Bridge. In December, he helped raise $4,750 during a Coastal Hospice benefit in Ocean Pines. Fans should stay tuned to his social media sites for another holiday benefit in the area.

SEPTEMBER 18, 2015

Fall Frisbee competition kicks off Monday By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) With the days growing shorter and the temperatures beginning to dip, even the hardiest of Frisbee enthusiasts must conclude the summertime disc season is drawing to a close. Now in its third season, Frisbee players from both the Beach Ultimate league and the regular Monday pick-up games will join forces to rent lights at the Northern Worcester Athletic Complex off Route 113 in Berlin to continue playing for the next eight weeks, beginning this Monday night at 6 p.m. Spaces are still available. The cost

is $65 per person, $40 of which goes to the county to pay for the lights and the rest to fund a team jersey. “We’re going for set mixed teams in a series and we’ll be changing the teams up so everyone gets a chance to play with everyone else,” organizer Alex “AJ” Jacoski said. During the spring and summer leagues, teams are formed ad hoc and generally only last for that night’s games. To change things up this year, Jacoski decided to tighten up the organization of the fall league to see if keeping set teams can work. “The league will feature mixedgender teams of players 18 and older,

WELCOME BIKERS!

and there will be an end-of-season social, though the details for that aren’t worked out yet,” Jacoski said. Many, if not most, of the players in the fall league will come from the population already active in the Ocean City/Berlin Ultimate Frisbee community, Jacoski said, but that shouldn’t keep new or even experienced players from participating. “The only things you need are a pair of cleats, and a refillable water bottle — we provide everything else,” he said. Jacoski explained that most of the players already signed up are friends, and have played the game alongside each other for years. Everyone has a

good basic understanding of the rules and can help new players acclimate. “We emphasize a concept known as the ‘spirit of the game,’ which means different things at different levels. Here, we stress two things: safety and fun,” he explained. “But fun is the top priority. With these players, we’re interested in playing good ultimate. We often lose track of the score — there are a lot of club players and a couple of pros.” Jacoski plays professional Ultimate Frisbee on the American Ultimate Disc League’s DC Breeze team with Ocean City local Bryant Dean.

As Jacoski and his league members work to reinforce Ocean City and the surrounding towns as a hub for quality ultimate training, Jacoski is focusing on the next step while keeping a watchful eye on the successes he’s already built. “Giving youth the opportunity to play is our next big thing, and we think going through school programs is the best way to achieve this,” he said.

(Sept. 18, 2015) This year marks the 50th anniversary of Assateague Island National Seashore and everyone is invited to the party. Guests can enjoy an entrance fee free three-day weekend in the Maryland district, Sept. 19-21. There will be programs and activities for children and families to enjoy in both the Maryland and Virginia districts of Assateague Island National Seashore. On Saturday in the Maryland district, join the annual Coastal Cleanup at 8:30 a.m. and then stay for the 50th anniversary celebration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come out to North Ocean Beach day-use area in the national seashore for 1960’s beach music with DJ Sky Brady, sand sculptor George Zaiser, birthday cake, cupcakes and drinks, 1960’s-era games for children and families to play and be sure to sign the birthday card. Sunday in the Maryland district offers a full day of programs including an aquarium talk, clamming and crabbing programs and a very special guest speaker, Eastern Shore local historian, Tom Wimbrow at 2:30 p.m. in the Environmental Education Center. The Virginia district offers two funfilled days of programs and activities on anniversary weekend. On Saturday, start the day off surf fishing or kayaking, stop in at the

Toms Cove Visitor Center for a fascinating “Ocean Pharmacy” program, become an Assateague detective while searching for clues to solve beach mysteries and be sure to hang out for a special beach campfire with a “1960’s flavor” complete with s’mores at 6 p.m. On Sunday, participate in a morning bird walk or marine exploration, kayak the cove or stop by the visitor center throughout the day for a variety of critter and plant programs. Kayak trips are $20 per person and require reservations, all other programs are free. Entrance fees are in effect in the Virginia district. Visit www.nps.gov/asis for the full weekend schedule. Assateague Island was identified in a 1934 survey by the National Park Service and Department of the Interior as one of 12 areas along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts suitable for a national seashore recreation area. Consequently, numerous bills supporting establishment of the national seashore were introduced annually to Congress but with no action taken. In 1943, the Fish and Wildlife Service, another federal bureau interested in Assateague, and the Department of the Interior established the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on the Virginia end of the island. In the

Programs and activities on tap for entire family to enjoy intervening years, most of the Maryland portion of Assateague was purchased for private development. Residential construction, road and infrastructure development were well underway, including a failed attempt to build a bridge to the island. Interestingly, on multiple occasions the state proposed creation of a state park on Assateague without result. Then, in 1956, the developer adeptly donated 540 acres to Maryland in exchange for creation of a new state park and construction of a bridge. March 6, 1962, a powerful storm hit Assateague, over-washed the island and destroyed most of the development’s roads and structures. This infamous “Ash Wednesday” storm provided an unexpected opportunity for the Department of the Interior to acquire the remaining portion of Assateague Island as a national seashore. Assateague Island National Seashore was officially established Sept. 21, 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Most of the Maryland district is managed by the National Park Service as Assateague Island National Seashore. The state manages two miles of the Maryland district as Assateague State Park. The Virginia district is managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as Chincoteague National Wildlife

Refuge. The National Park Service operates the Toms Cove Visitor Center and a recreational beach within the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Assateague Island is one of the largest and last surviving Mid-Atlantic barrier islands containing intact coastal habitats where the full range of natural processes occur with little or no human interference. The 32,000 acres of marine and estuarine waters within the seashore are a protected vestige of the high quality aquatic ecosystems that once occurred throughout the Mid-Atlantic coastal region of the United States. The seashore’s habitats support a broad array of aquatic and terrestrial species, many of which are rare, uniquely adapted to life at the edge of the sea, and dependent upon natural ecosystem processes undisturbed by humans. Amidst the highly developed Mid-Atlantic region, the seashore’s coastal resources provide unique opportunities for nature-based recreation, education, solitude and inspiration. In 2014, 2,170,681 visitors enjoyed high quality resource-compatible recreational experiences at Assateague spending $90,417,200 in communities near the park. That spending supported 1,241 jobs in the local area.

Volunteers needed to pick up trash in OC, WOC Park and Ride, at Assateague Is.

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Sept. 18, 2015) The majority of the 29th annual Coastal Cleanup will take place this Saturday, Sept. 19, to remove trash from beaches, bays, marshes and riverbanks in Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. Delmarva Power, along with environmental, government and business organizations need volunteers to help with cleaning up 72 locations. More than 1,000 people had already signed up before the Coastal Cleanup kickoff news conference on the beach at 146th Street last month. Most cleanups will occur Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon, although ef-

forts will continue into October. “The intent of the program is to teach people to be environmentally conscious by recycling and reusing or properly disposing their waste,” Delmarva Power Spokesman Matt Likovich said during the Coastal Cleanup kickoff news conference. “It also helps economically to do a massive sweep of the area that relies heavily on tourism. When the beaches are clean people come back and spend money.” Efforts are working according to the numbers. Approximately 2,300 volunteers collected an estimated 17,000 pounds of trash last year, including unusual items such as a windshield wiper, paint brush, flashlight, toilet seat, television, car fender and chopsticks. When the cleanup began 29 years ago, about 40 to 50 thousand pounds of trash were removed from waterways in the area. In the late 1990s, Likovich and his family cleared a block of dune in north Ocean City, filling up about six trash bags of litter thrown off of hotel balconies including sneakers and other items. Cigar and cigarette butts, beverage containers, plastic bags and balloons with attached strings or ribbons were typical items found last year and pose serious threats to animals and aquatic life.

“It’s an educational event with Girl Scout troops, environmental groups and science teachers who have come out to explain how sea life can get trapped in a six-pack plastic ring or how cigarette butts ingested by wildlife can kill them,” Likovich said. Along the same lines, at least 12 students from local colleges will help out in the Ocean City area and receive credit in their environmental science classes for community service, said Sandi Smith, development coordinator for the Maryland Coastal Bays program. Coastal Cleanup is part of an International Coastal Cleanup, sponsored by Ocean Conservancy, an organization that works to protect the world’s oceans. It uses the types and amounts of trash collected during these efforts to help identify sources of debris and explore ways to cut litter. “Globally, cleanups will be taking place in 91 countries with more than half a million volunteers participating,” said Matt Heim, office manager for Assateague Coastal Trust. The initiative began 29 years ago with Delaware’s Get the Drift and Bag It program, which Delmarva Power took over four years later. The local Coastal Cleanup has since grown to cover shorelines from Maryland to New Jersey, Likovich said. Volunteers are encouraged to sign See CLEAN Page 92

Clean up OC and Assateague, Sat. Continued from Page 90 up to help with the local cleanups taking place in Ocean City, the marsh by the West Ocean City Park and Ride, Assateague National Seashore and Nassawango Creek Preserve in advance to ensure a T-shirt and that each location has a solid number of volunteers. “Don’t be hesitant, even if you can only give us an hour, its fine and we appreciate the help,” Likovich said. Ocean City’s cleanup launches at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19 at City Hall, on Baltimore Avenue at Third Street. Volunteers can register in advance by calling city Environmental Engineer Gail Blazer at 410-289-8221, Smith at 410-213-2297 or sign up onsite the day of the event. The town will provide trash bags and plastic gloves for the cleanup, which takes place throughout the city. A much-needed cleanup will take place at the Park and Ride in West Ocean City at 10 a.m. where the surrounding marshes are riddled with trash and access is difficult. The Ocean City maintenance department will be providing supplies including gloves and bags. Assateague Island will also host its cleanup on Sept. 19, at 9 a.m. at the North Beach Parking Lot on Assateague Island National Seashore and usually concludes around 11 a.m. Bring gloves, bug spray, sunscreen and

water. Call Heim at 410-629-1538 to register in advance or sign up onsite that morning. In addition, adults and older children will have the opportunity to cleanup sections of the Assateague beaches on four-wheel drive vehicles provided by the National Park Service. “The event also offers people the opportunity to access parts of the island that otherwise would be difficult to visit,” Heim said.

‘The event also offers people the opportunity to access parts of the island that otherwise would be difficult to visit.’ Matt Heim, Assateague Coastal Trust The Assateague Coastkeeper will lead volunteers who wish to participate in the cleanup by boat, kayak or standup paddleboard. Bayside cleanup volunteers are asked to register at the North Beach parking lot before meeting the coastkeeper at 9 a.m. at the parking area for Old Ferry Landing on Assateague Island National Seashore. After the cleanup, a short ceremony to celebrate Assateague Island National Seashore’s 50th anniversary will commence on the beach in addition to music, a birthday cake, limbo, hula

hoop, Frisbee and other activities. “Assateague Island is a treasure and visited by millions of people every year. This event is an opportunity to take care of the island,” Heim said. A cleanup at Nassawango Creek is slated for 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the intersection of Route 12 and Old Stage Coach Lane in Snow Hill. Contact The Nature Conservancy’s Joe Fehrer at 410-430-1743 to register in advance or show up that morning to register onsite. All volunteers will receive a free Coastal Cleanup T-shirt bearing this year’s logo, while supplies last. “Some people have collected the Tshirts from the beginning,” Likovich said. The cleanups last about three hours and volunteers should bring bug spray, a hat, sun screen and water. Volunteers are encouraged to be prepared for all elements with the event held rain or shine. “You feel good after participating. We always have repeat volunteers and it’s a great day at the beach doing something positive,” Likovich said. “It’s a community effort and people strike up friendships along the way.” “It’s important for people to recognize the international effort and issue,” Smith said. “We hear people say all the time they do not understand the impact of trash on the environment until they see it at a cleanup.”

Commentary

Recycling law: it’s easier to go along

It’s admirable when a governmental body takes a stand against the authority that occupies the next step up in the hierarchy, but the Worcester County Commissioners might want to rethink their decision to ignore, more or less, an important portion of the state’s amended recycling law. As of Oct. 1, the law requires all government entities in the state to have a recycling program for special events of a certain size that take place on public property. Further, all government entities must amend their overall recycling plans, which also must be approved by the Maryland Department of the Environment, to include this new provision. The commissioners on Tuesday voted 4-3 not to do the latter, opting instead to send a letter to the department outlining their objections to this requirement. At the time, the commissioners wondered what the state might be able to do about their refusal to go along with the program. Even though none of the various iterations of the Maryland Recycling Act, going back to its inception in 1988, included penalties for recalcitrant governments, turns out the state can do plenty. More than plenty, actually, as the department, should it be so inclined, has the ability to block water and wastewater projects and anything else that requires one of its permits. Given the department’s authority over all things environmental, from clean air to clean water as mandated by the federal government, this is not an agency with which anyone would want to tangle. A little rebellion now and then is a good thing, as Thomas Jefferson once observed, but there is also such a thing as picking your fights. Establishing recycling plans for special events and including those requirements in the county’s overall program should not be a massive undertaking. But even if it is troublesome, giving in and going along – while still looking for an exemption –would be much better than reaping the even greater woe that the department has the capacity to deliver.

Letters to the editor Cruisin’ issues

Editor, I was very disappointed in the Ocean City Council’s recent decisions regarding the Cruiser weekend. How soon we forget how things are for that weekend. I invited the council to see the damage done to the entrance of our parking lot where cruiser trailers back in to turn around. Or check out the tire rubber marks on the street where the Jeff Gordon wannabees burned rubber last spring. Not to mention all the trash left behind. I think the council’s recent actions are taken without thought or regard to those of us who make our main home in Ocean City all year round. Those of us who spend money each weekend in the city all year round. Those of us who pay a lot of money in taxes all year round. Those of us that have to put up with the deafening noise (is there or isn’t there a noise ordinance in the city?) and the obnoxious fumes of all the cruisers. Plus the lack of parking on city streets that weekend is ridiculous. The traffic situation is horrendous and sometimes virtually impossible for those who need to go to the stores, work, doctors, etc. — as many people witnessed last spring. Do they even consider this? So the solution now is to charge for trailer parking? That means things will re-

main the same except they will collect money from a few of the cruisers for trailer parking and charge the taxpayers for signs that will be ignored. When they first proposed sensible changes for cruiser weekend, I thought finally someone in local government is being proactive. I guess I should have known how things really work. They had a chance to do the right thing, but caved to special money interests. I read where the proposed ordinances originated in Myrtle Beach where apparently they know how to do the right thing. One last thing, do we really need two cruiser weekends a year and two biker weekends a year? I think the council needs to decide if Ocean City is going to be a true family resort destination or a place renowned for dangerous roadways, traffic jams, loud noises, obnoxious behavior, etc. Because you can’t have it both ways.

Death of a hero

Editor, A couple of weeks ago the small Greek church on 84th was filled with people even though it was midweek. More oddly, less than half the attendees were Greek, and a Marine honor guard stood in the back in color dress as if waiting for a cue. Jimmy Giatris, the "Candy Man," had died at the age of

93, and I was one of many who had come to pay their respects. Jimmy was born in Cumberland, Md., the son of a candy man, and he attended elementary school through high school in the same classroom as my mother. Jimmy worked for Sam Taustin at Candy Kitchen for 20 years, where he brought his fudge and chocolate recipes. From that time he picked up the nickname “Candy Man.” Jimmy had a Spartan work ethic because he was a Spartan. Jimmy was best friends with Sam and would travel with him almost everywhere he went. It was rumored that Sam tried to bar mitzvah him, convert him to Judaism, at least twice. Neither Sam nor Jimmy had children. Jimmy was blessed with longevity and outlived Sam by about 15 years. He would talk about Sam a lot. Two weeks before he died, I took Jimmy to church for the last time. On the way back to his condo on 28th and Baltimore, he said, “Tony, I am done.” I said, “What do you mean?” He simply said he was through. I got mad at him for saying it, but I understood. When it came time to prepare a will, he didn’t call his surviving nephews; he called the Taustins. Jay convinced him to draw up a will and served as his executor. Among those who eulogized him was Jay Taustin. Continued on Page 98

Letters to the editor Continued from Page 97 His wife sang a Jewish hymn. The owner of Liquid Assets was there; Billy, the owner of BJ’s, and I all spoke at the funeral. The Marines performed; the Taustins brought chocolates for after the ceremony. Possibly some were from Jimmy’s old recipes. From a business perspective there was no one more informed on Ocean City than Jimmy. Even after age 90 he continued to amaze all his friends with the details of his knowledge. Liquid Assets had a special bar seat for Jim, yet he wasn’t a drinker other than a social nip from time to time. He had no immediate family, yet he had so many friends. Jimmy was connected to almost every businessman and business activity in Ocean City. With his passing our community begrudgingly lets go of a past era of connections between people, a time past that Jimmy fondly reminded us of every time we saw him. Ocean City was Jim’s family. Although he didn’t talk much about it, he served in the fabled 1st Marine Division in WWII. Once, several years ago, he showed me all his graphic tattoos on both arms naming every beach the 1st hit. I wrote them down, and will now record them: • Operation Watchtower, Aug. 7, 1942, to Feb. 9, 1943, involved in the 1st Division’s amphibious assaults in

the lower Solomon Islands • Guadalcanal, Aug.7–8, D-Day 1942; Jim hit the beach to begin the six-month campaign (of his 40-man platoon, 19 died). Wounded from shrapnel, received Purple Heart • Seizure of Rendova in the New Georgia Island Group, June 1943 • Munda Airfield, New Georgia Island, July to August 1943 • Ellice Islands, October 1943 • Battle for Piva Trail, Bougainville Island, Nov. 5-9, 1943 • Battle of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll of the Gilbert Islands, Nov. 21, 1943; hit with shrapnel while hitting the beach; 16,000-man division suffered 20 percent casualties; 1,000 died on a half-mile of sand • Bougainville, January 1944; took shrapnel in the back, three months to recover, second Purple Heart. After the war Jimmy stayed with the Marines for 20 years working up to second lieutenant. His marine cap was a fixture on his head even when he went to church. As we look toward an uncertain future we fondly remember Jimmy, who reflects a heroic past long gone. In his last 20 years of retirement he connected us and knew so many of us that he was truly symbolic of the anomalous town of Ocean City. Tony Christ Ocean City

PUBLIC EYE

Limping through

By Stewart Dobson Editor/Publisher

If the rock bands of my high school years were the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the most appropriate band name of my recent class reunion would be the 1990s outfit, Limp Bizkit. I’m not saying we weren’t mostly functional adults, at least as far as I know, but judging from the conversations I heard at my umptyith class By get-together, we’re Stewart carrying around a fortune in stainless Dobson steel. I could be wrong, but if I were to come across an urgent situation and someone yelled out into the crowd, “Can anyone here perform an emergency knee replacement?” I could step forward with confidence. In addition to having a pretty good idea where the knee is, which I imagine would be essential before breaking out the titanium screws and such, I now know more about the entire excruciating process, its post-operative stages and other amazing knee facts than I could ever have imagined. For instance, having a knee or knees that bend both ways might

seem like a convenience, especially if you’re on a plane with insufficient leg room and you need to fold them backwards. It is not, however, a good thing, according to the doctors my friends have seen. They also offered tales of doctors saying things such as, “Unless you want to stand like a bird, you ought to get that bad boy replaced,” or, “Buy one, get one free …Not! Hahahahaha!” This knowledge comes courtesy of my friends and classmates, many of whom remained ambulatory during this entire affair. I exaggerate, of course, as a good many of the people I grew up with look and act much like they used to, give or take a replacement part of two. In fact, I was in error, when I thought I’d be the coolest guy there. Try as I might to put everyone to shame by partying on during the day and into the night, my coolness lost its luster about mid-afternoon. For whatever reason, announcing that you have to take a break and return to your room for your midday snooze with your anti-apnea machine doesn’t exactly shout, “Hey, look at me! I’m an ageless wonder.” As it is, many of us are still rockin’ and rollin,’ while some others had that addressed when they got new knees.
