A big mess but that’s it

Something was missing over the weekend along the Maryland coast and it was Hurricane Joaquin, which lumbered out to sea and was last seen heading for the other side of the Atlantic. What didn’t miss was a nor’easter that howled for four days, leading to flooding, event cancellations and major beach erosion, as well as sightseeing and frivolous pursuits.

Clockwise from the top: Pushed by steady northeast winds that gusted to more than 40 mph, the ocean takes over the beach at 82nd Street on Monday. Brandon Palme and Shawn Landis of Cleveland, Ohio, take a paddle on Ninth Street on Saturday, while a photographer captures an angry Ocean City inlet scene. Meanwhile, the beach was closed through Sunday, as a good portion of it ended up on the Boardwalk. Story on page 3.

Ocean City weathers storm with little damage Army Corps in town today to inspect dunes; flooding proves to do limited harm

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Depending on if your glass is half empty or half full, the weather gods have either saved Ocean City again, or continue to cruelly toy with it. Despite expecting the worst from Hurricane Joaquin this past weekend, it appears the resort has come out virtually unharmed. Joaquin itself barely had any impact on the area, with serious flooding this past week being the result of a nor’easter that paralleled Joaquin’s path and “interacted” with the hurricane system, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. “The nor’easter itself was what we really experienced,” said Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan. “The fact that the hurricane went offshore and we received very little effects from it is what really allowed us to get through this without major damage.” Other than a few reports of torn-up decking, little material damage was reported. The biggest hurdle for the city has been in pushing sand back out onto the beach, after having been washed inland with the storm swells. Sand drifts several feet high blocked the Boardwalk until removed by city Public Works Department crews early Monday morning. However, only minor dune damage was reported in one location, near 81st Street, where the dunes have a natural weak point, Meehan said. On Monday night, he relayed a message to the City Council from City Engineer Terry McGean, noting that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would be in the resort today, Oct. 9, to inspect the condition of the beach and dune system. The Corps will complete a full survey in November, but it is unlikely that any emergency repairs will be needed. “Bottom line, the beach and the dunes are still there in case we get another storm,” Meehan said. As is almost always the case, the re-

However, downtown areas were still accessible on foot, and several businesses stayed open – despite the intermittent lack of power – for those who wanted to go for a stroll in the storm. “I was really surprised by the number of people who were out,” said Fat Daddy’s owner Ed Braude, whose Dorchester Street location continued to serve food through the weekend. “We had our sign out on the Boardwalk pointing people toward the restaurant, and a good number stopped in,” Braude said. “Our business was probably about 30 percent of this weekend last year, but that’s more than the ‘zero’ I was expecting.”

Nor’easter ‘non-event’ for inland areas of Worcester By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) While the potent one-two punch of a nor’easter and Hurricane Joaquin might have netted the area a very different result had the named storm made landfall in or near the area, county officials report that the region escaped largely unscathed. According to Fred Webster, the county director of emergency services, Worcester reported only 27 calls to 911 for road hazards, which were mostly “limbs and lines down,” and fire departments responded to just six electrical hazard calls for downed power lines between midnight Wednesday and midnight Sunday. Webster said the Emergency Operations Center, located in the basement of the Government Center building in Snow Hill, was only partially activated. “We’ve had up to 70 people in there but we only had 22 or 23 people there at any one time,” Webster said. Representatives from the state police, sheriff’s office and other law enforcement entities or first responders were present, along with representatives of certain services such as the health department and public information office.

“Debbie Goeller,” the Worcester County Health Officer, “was here, for example, in case we needed to open shelters. The decision to close the schools on Friday was made here,” Webster said. The emergency center is not only a place for people to convene during a crisis, it also acts as a single point of contact for most of the county. Webster said the center was used to host twice-daily conference calls with the Maryland Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service. Public Works Director John Tustin characterized this weekend’s weather situation as a “non-event” and reported that there was no reportable flooding damage to county roads. Webster described the county’s stance as “reactive,” in that no county personnel or vehicles were out patrolling the streets looking for damage or danger, but instead relied upon citizen reports of possible trouble. Webster admitted concern when the causeway between Chincoteague Island and the mainland was closed in Virginia, since the towns of Stockton and Girdletree are nearby, but while some reported flooding occurred in the area, nothing warranted road closure, he said.

Add’l police, soggy weather cut down on H2Oi concerns OCPD, state police report less issues with spectators, cars during event weekend

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Despite a particularly soggy couple of days, Ocean City continued its love-hate relationship with the H2O International Volkswagen/Audi show this past weekend and, maybe, even improved it. Although still a drain on police resources as far as controlling crowds and traffic, tuner car enthusiasts were the only big group that stuck around through the rain and flooding, saving the weekend’s business from a complete washout. “If not for the cars, it would’ve

been a dead weekend,� said Ocean City Brewing Company owner Josh Shores. “Whether that crowd is good or bad in the long run, I don’t’ know. But we deal with the same issues in June. It’s nothing new.� Data from the Ocean City Police Department confirmed what many have suspected: the show itself, commonly known as H2Oi, has little overlap with the demographic that seems to cause the most problems. The OCPD’s peak enforcement demand within the resort occurred on Saturday, at a time when H2Oi’s actual participants would have been at the event at Fort Whaley, several miles outside of town on Route 50. But a large contingent of unofficial participants seems to use the event’s weekend as a rallying point to coalesce in the resort. The interest centers on cars, although not necessarily VW/Audi models. Large numbers of Hondas, Nissans, Acuras, and other makes hold impromptu shows in parking lots and zip up and down Coastal Highway to be seen by spectators on the sidewalks. On Saturday, the OCPD gave out 596 traffic citations and warnings, according to department data, during 285 separate traffic stops. This is a steep stop-to-ticket ratio as comSee PROBLEM Page 10

Carozza reflects on first law passed as housemember Bill increased preference for vets; effective Oct. 1

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Changing the way an entire state buys things is no mean feat, but Delegate Mary Beth Carozza (R-38C) did just that as the law she sponsored in the House took effect on Oct. 1, doubling the percentage requirement Maryland contracts veteran-owned businesses from one-half to one percent. It doesn’t sound like much, and even Carozza said she had her sights set higher, but fiddling with procurement percentages is not usually how a freshman delegate spends their time. “It goes back to my time as a civilian with the Department of Defense. I had this experience work- Mary Beth Carozza ing with the military and veterans and wanted to continue that as a delegate,” she said. Carozza said she had met with another delegate, Kelly Schulz, upon entering office. Schulz was about to be named Secretary of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, and asked if there were any issues she could take up. “Schulz did the groundwork and had originally proposed five percent — which is what I introduced,” Carozza said. Along the way the bill picked up bipartisan support, especially among those members with military experience. But, when it came down to it, the five percent met with too much resistance from other representatives. Instead of upping the cap by a factor of ten, Carozza had to be content with merely doubling the standard. “The challenges were the reason I was so uplifted to have worked on it. I was hoping for overall procurement reform, but I remember thinking I needed to help the veterans first,” she said. Since the bill signing in May, Carozza said she is focusing on implementation. “We’re letting businesses know they can do this, and we’re working on making it easier to apply [for state contracts],” Carozza said. “We need to make sure the follow-up is done well.” It’s a two-pronged attack of raising awareness of the newer, freer standards as well as providing training for businesses that would like to start competing for state contracts. “It’s an obligation we have as a society that when veterans return or complete their service they have the opportunity to continue to be leaders,” she said.

Problem element proves separate from event itself Continued from Page 8 pared to other events, indicating more deliberate enforcement. “The balance we saw this year was obviously more in our favor, but there’s always room for improvement,� said OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro. “The bottom line is we welcome everyone. There was a good turnout, it was good for business and there was a high degree of police control. Yes, you’ve got noise, you’re going to have some inappropriate driving, but the lawlessness isn’t a factor because we had virtually no serious crime.� Total weekend calls for service, both officer-initiated and citizen calls, came to 1,703 over four days, down from the 2,318 calls over the Thursday through Sunday over last year’s H2Oi. Total arrests came to 38, down from 57 last year. Vehicle collisions, Buzzuro said, were also significantly less serious. “The amount of collisions we saw was minimal and none were particularly serious,� Buzzuro said. “It was somewhat of a surprise. When you have extreme weather conditions and you’re driving a vehicle unsafely, you’d figure collisions would be inevitable, but we did not see that.� The Maryland State Police also logged 460 traffic stops, with 410 warnings and citations issued, ac-

cording to an MSP press release. Additional state police presence had been requested by H2Oi organizer Jay Shoup, who has expressed a desire to cut down on some of the peripheral visitors who cause the most law enforcement concern while likely not contributing to the H2Oi show itself. “In speaking with the state police, they really didn’t have any big problems,� Shoup said. “Optimistically, I’d like to think it was a combination of the weather and the nature of the crowd improving. We put the message out that the state police were going to be out in full force and I think that cut down on some of the rowdies and hopefully will continue to do so moving forward.� Despite issues with rain and mud, the Fort Whaley Campground car rally saw about half of the attendance of previous years, Shoup said. Tentative dates for next year’s event are Oct. 1-2. Further, officers were seen this year doing as much work on the sidewalks and parking areas adjacent to Coastal Highway as they were on the road itself. Despite the city’s reluctance to pass ordinances that would’ve given police new powers to arrest those loitering on landscape areas and parking lots, it’s still illegal to block

and it looks like a lot of them were completely hydrolocked,” Foskey said. Hydrolock occurs when water interferes with the air/gasoline mixture in the cylinders and causes the pistons to cease functioning. Business performance over the weekend often depended on the menu. “We may not have seen as much because we’re a bit higher-end,” Shores said. “But I can’t complain. It’s still revenue coming in.” On the other side of coin, Fat Daddy’s saw a strong showing from car enthusiasts, despite losing most of its business at the downtown store because of sporadic power cuts. “The fact that H2Oi wasn’t cancelled when everything else was, was a saving grace,” said Fat Daddy’s owner Ed Braude. “The car kids are right up our alley. They’re not a sitdown, $30 per plate crowd. We’re a sub shop with some creative menu items, and we fit that hipster market really well for some reason.”

sidewalks and to incite others to break the law, specifically by encouraging burnouts or otherwise distracting drivers. Rarely does this result in legal action being taken. The intent, Buzzuro said, is for officers to make their presence known before further action becomes necessary. “It was a conscious part of our overall strategy to engage, to get out of the cars and to engage on the sidelines,” Buzzuro said. “When you get to a level where you have to cite or arrest people, it’s because you’ve run out of other options.” Although there’s no way to know how many possible visitors bailed because of the weather, the weekend storm certainly had a mitigating effect on vehicular activity, even in a practical sense. On Saturday and Sunday alone, Racetrack Auto towed at least 15 lowered vehicles, according to dispatcher Alicia Foskey. “They had reported stalling out,

Land acquisition complete for OCDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;model blockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Old beach patrol HQ, other buildings to be demolished in favor of mixed-use area

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) With the final passage of a property transfer ordinance this week, the city has officially turned over ownership of the former Ocean City Beach Patrol headquarters and surrounding buildings to the Ocean City Development Corporation. With the OCBP fully moved out of its old building and into the new one, located just one block north, asbestos removal on the old facility was scheduled to start this week ahead of demolition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Asbestos abatement is going on now, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be looking at actual demolition starting in about two weeks,â&#x20AC;? said City Engineer Terry McGean. Once the old headquarters, and the former staff housing next to it, are leveled OCDC will have finally cleared the area marked for the nonprofit groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;model blockâ&#x20AC;? initiative. This will entail OCDC designing a mixed-use project intended to serve as a nucleus for downtown redevelop-

ment. Plans will then be marketed to a private developer to actually build the project. The former OCBP headquarters, located on the corner of Dorchester Street and Baltimore Avenue, is being given to OCDC as part of a deal involving the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous turnover to the city of its land on Talbot Street and Baltimore Avenue. This lot was used to build a new OCBP headquarters, a much-needed project on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part given that the old building, which was used until 1991 as a police headquarters and court chambers, was suffering from mold, asbestos, and general decay. OCDC had lobbied the city to build the new beach patrol headquarters downtown, instead of the midtown location that had been discussed some years ago, given that the presence of OCBP employees bolsters the downtown economy. OCDC, which gets its money from private grants and fundraisers as well as from a cut of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inlet parking lot revenue, will be paying 35 percent of the $2 million bond the city took out to finance construction of the new building. The city, in return, financed the purchase of additional properties for OCDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s model block initiative, See FINAL Page 14

Class action lawsuit filed against Dead Freddies Plaintiffs allege ‘rampant’ wage violations for servers, kitchen staff at restaurant

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Ten employees have joined a class-action suit filed in federal court in Baltimore as plaintiffs against Dead Freddies LLC alleging they are owed unpaid overtime and minimum wages. The complaint was filed on Aug. 27, and while the defendant has until Oct. 19 to respond, the company already challenged claims made by two plaintiffs as of Sept. 30. According to court records, plaintiff Melanie Mason of Pocomoke City was a tipped “front of house” server from Feb. 2013 to August 2015.

Mason, however, alleges she was not paid for all of the hours she worked, was forced to pay for customer walk-outs, mis-rung or rejected food and drink and was forced to perform excess amounts of “side work” including rolling silverware, cleaning tables and both cleaning and stocking service areas. The lawsuit alleges, among other things, “Plaintiff Mason and others were frequently forced to pay for a ‘basket’ of French fries ($8) if a customer substituted potato chips for French fries, but the substitution was not entered correctly into the point-of-sale system.” The plaintiffs also contend the defendant withheld a “tip credit” without informing the plaintiffs of the amount, that tipped employees have a right to retain all their tips except in a valid tip pooling arrangement

“Your friends at the beach since 1973”

Residential & Commercial

and no tip credit could be taken without first informing the employee of the relevant provisions of law. According to court documents, Plaintiff Desmond Dale of Ocean City alleges that “between the years of 2012 and 2014” he worked at Dead Freddies as a salaried grill cook and was forced to work more than 40 hours per week. If he failed to meet the hours set by his employer, Dale alleges Dead Freddies would withhold the entirety of his salary for that week, constituting a violation of minimum wage laws. On Sept. 30, lawyers for Dead Freddies responded to this claim by seeking a motion to dismiss Dale’s claims, based on the argument that

restaurants were exempt from the federal Wage and Hour Law until July 1, 2014. Another plaintiff, Salman Afridi, of Salisbury, makes a similar claim to Dale’s, stating he was employed as a dishwasher “during the previous three years” and was also paid a salary, was required to work more than 40 hours per week and was denied overtime for those hours. Similar to Dale’s claims, lawyers for Dead Freddies state that because the allegations do not contain dates after July 1, 2014 they have no basis for a claim. Calls to the defense attorney, Dead Freddies restaurant and a business co-owned by an owner of Dead Freddie’s were not returned.

Final piece of development corp’s project puzzle acquired Continued from Page 12 namely the buildings on the corner of Somerset Street and Baltimore Avenue that were formerly owned by the Hall family. The city purchased the properties last year with a down payment of $216,000 and another $600,000 over 10 years at two percent interest, to be paid out of

OCDC’s inlet lot allocation. Once the model block is sold, the proceeds will go back to the city. The former Hall properties were demolished this spring, and used over the summer as temporary parking. OCDC also plans to convert the old OCBP lot into parking until work begins on the model block project.

Exposed rebar on Rt. 50 bridge poses no threat Right-hand lane of structure closed Oct. 13-14 to seal concrete, evaluate damage

By Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Hunks of concrete are falling off the Route 50 bridge, but it isn’t as bad as it sounds, according to the State Highway Administration. The SHA will be performing maintenance next week, on Oct. 13 and 14, to address what is known as “spalling” of the bridge’s concrete structure, a phenomenon that has caused concern amongst some boaters. The right-hand eastbound lane will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days to complete the process. Spalling is a process whereby internal pressure changes within the concrete, either due to weight from vehicles, or temperature-induced expansion and contraction, cause pieces of concrete to pop off the outer layers of the bridge. “It is not uncommon to have this occur, especially as concrete ages and is subjected to years and years of freeze and thaw over salty water,” wrote Charlie Gischlar, public information officer for the SHA. “The structure is safe and the spalling is seen in older bridges.”

Ocean City Today, as well as the SHA, recently received photos from local boater Christopher Smith, showing large pieces of concrete missing from the underside of the span, with rusted rebar visible. Gischlar said these deteriorations can be addressed with a sealant that will prevent further material loss. “They’ll look at it just to make sure its surface spall and not a structural issue, and then spray a polymer on there just to be sure,” Gischlar said. “That bridge is very high on our radar to watch because of its age.” Wooden decking can also be attached to the underside of the bride in areas where it appears spalling may soon occur to prevent the concrete from falling in the bay or on a passing boat. The Route 50 Bridge was built in 1942, and sees an average of 1,600 drawspan openings each year. Thirty thousand cars pass over the bridge each day, on average. Winter numbers are naturally below average, and summer numbers are much higher. In 2013, a study on the future replacement of the bridge was finally approved at the federal level, with plans to construct a new span adjacent to the current bridge on its north side. When that would happen, however, is anyone’s guess. Completion of the Route 113 dualization project and

According to State Highway Administration spokesman Charlie Gischlar, “spalling” occurs when internal pressure changes within the concrete and causes the outer layers to fall off.

dualization of Route 589 are the state’s top road infrastructure priorities in Worcester County. In 2013, city officials further advised the SHA that the dualization of Route 90 should be finished before work begins on Route 50, the concern being that the closure of Route 50 for

a significant time period, with Route 90 still being a single lane, would cause catastrophic traffic difficulties for the resort. The Route 50 Bridge is fully inspected every two years, typically in March, and moving metal parts are inspected annually.

County approves $662K spend on replacement cars

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) As part of its annual budgeting and procurement processes, Worcester County purchases a number of vehicles to replace or augment its existing fleet. This year, the Worcester County Commissioners agreed to a total expenditure of $662,000 for this equipment, which is about $11,400 over budget. That department will use savings in fuel expenses to make up the shortfall between the actual and budgeted amounts, attributed to the Worcester County Sheriff’s office. The sheriff’s office requested five vehicles: one full-size SUV 4x4, one unmarked full-size SUV 4x2 and three full-size police pursuit SUV 4x2s at a budgeted amount of about $165,400. The low bids for this equipment totaled nearly $177,000. “I identified funding to make up the difference in the fuel budget,” Col. Douglas Dods wrote in a memo to Fleet Management Superintendent William Powell and included in the commissioners’ packets. “We are currently budgeted for an average of $23,825 per month. So far, the average expended in July and August is $17,091 per month. This is a reduction of $6,724 per month or a total so far of $13,448, which will cover the difference,” Dods wrote. Dods said in the memo he would set this money aside for the rest of the year so it is available when the invoices arrive in spring. All of the other vehicle purchases were under budget. Significantly, the requests form the Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works was about $12,000 under budget in its order of five vehicles: a pickup and utility body trucks, two cargo vans and a mid-size SUV. In addition to vehicles for Water and Wastewater, Health, Fire Marshal, Sheriff and Maintenance departments, a skid steer loader was purchased for the recycling division for almost $62,000 and was budgeted to cost $70,000 and two new cab tractors were purchased for about $129,000 for the Roads division, which had budgeted about $139,000.

County recycling efforts draining resources Worcester might need to seek bonds for new landfill cells in future, staff warns

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) A relatively routine presentation on the county’s Solid Waste division Tuesday got interesting during the recycling portion when the conversation shifted from trying to woo Ocean City back into the fold but ended up with the commissioners contemplating seeking their own exemption from state mandates. No direct action was taken by the county to formally explore the idea, just a vague directive offered by Commissioner Vice President Merrill Lockfaw, adopted unanimously, to direct staff to “continue to explore options,” to shore up solid waste operations.

A number of factors contributed to Tustin. the turn in discussion, including DiCurrently, with the credit for rector of Public Works John Tustin’s chicken manure, the county’s recyrevelation that recycling operations cling goal far exceeds the mandate. cost the county an average of Tustin said Worcester’s percentage is $690,000 annually. between 25 and 30 percent.

the market, Tustin said cardboard and paper used to fetch $200 per ton, but the price currently sits at $70 per ton. “It’s a struggle. People still come up to me about recycling,” Commissioner Joe Mitrecic said, who was a member of the Ocean City Council when it decided to discontinue the service in 2009. “I don’t think you can ever make it attractive enough [for Ocean City to offer recycling again], but you should never say never,” Mitrecic said. “Ocean City is behind us,” Tustin agreed. Mitrecic offered the idea of expanding Ocean City’s program to the county, but was met with some resistance because of the popularity of the service. However, the commissioners didn’t rule anything out when they directed staff to continue investigating possible solutions. Another area of the solid waste division that loses money is the operation of the three Homeowner Convenience Centers in Snow Hill, Pocomoke City and Berlin. Tustin estimated these facilities lose about $500,000 per year. An idea the department is “batting around,” Tustin said, is a proposal to remove the $100 permit fee for use and instead charge county households $30 to allow access to the centers. Tipping fees would be unaffected by this proposal and would still apply. Mitrecic was resistant to this idea as the commissioner representing Ocean City, because he said Ocean City already pays for most of the operations and residents don’t use the convenience centers much. Lockfaw disagreed with Mitrecic’s notion, and likened it to Ocean City residents declining to use county roads. Other ideas to mitigate solid waste losses include privatizing the services, as was done in Harford County when Maryland Environmental Services, a quasi-governmental agency, took over solid waste operations, and hiring a consultant to find efficiencies as a set of “fresh eyes” on the problem, Tustin said. For the past 25 years, county Treasurer Phil Thompson said, the county has been able to operate the solid waste division “debt free,” but required a bond sale in 2015 to make up the difference. “To continue the way we’re operating is not going to work. To try something different or drastic, we’d need a consultant,” to evaluate impacts, Asst. Finance Officer Jennifer Swanton said. The consultant was expected to cost between $50,000 and $75,000. Commissioner Chip Bertino said he wasn’t sure he saw the wisdom in spending money on a consultant who would just say the effort was going to lose money anyway. The other commissioners agreed, and directed staff to continue investigating solutions.

COUNTY BRIEFS (Oct. 9, 2015) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following issues during their most recent regular meeting.

Development hearing Triple Crown Estates LLC would like to establish a Residential Planned Community on the northerly side of Gum Point Road, east of Route 589 consisting of 30 duplex lots for a total of 60 single-family dwellings. The commissioners scheduled a public hearing on the development during their Nov. 3 meeting.

County encumbers $1.7M As part of the annual audit, the county must retain a reserve for funds committed to a project, but not actually owed until a different fiscal period. Fiscal 2015 funds withheld for uncompleted projects, as of June 30, 2015, total $1.7 million. Roads, recreation, environmental services, the circuit court and boat landings were among the departments required to encumber funds.

Schools replace HVAC Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson requested and was granted permission to use about $180,000 in surplus funding realized from savings in replacing gym floors in Berlin Intermediate, Pocomoke Middle and Snow

Hill Middle schools to replace seven HVAC units. Wilson said the units were 29 years old and have reached the end of their useful life.

Improvement plan OK’d Worcester schools needed commissioner approval for their capital improvement plan before Nov. 23, and both sought and received it during Tuesday’s meeting. The projects included in the plan are the Showell school replacement, an addition to Stephen Decatur Middle to eliminate the need for portable classrooms and roof replacements for Snow Hill Middle and Pocomoke Middle schools.

Budget transfers As part of the 2015 audit, department heads can submit requests to shuffle money around to cover overages and shortfalls. The total amount of transfers is $413,671.

FEMA grant renewed A grant in the amount of $80,400 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to combat terrorism and other catastrophic events was renewed by the county. At least one-quarter of the funds must be used for law enforcement purposes.

Worcester’s offer already behind region, will push wellness plan for savings

By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Despite continued assertions that the savings would be small and would take years to realize if county government were to drop health insurance coverage for the spouses and dependents of its retirees, Worcester County Commissioner Joe Mitrecic thinks it’s still worth considering. At Tuesday’s county commissioner meeting, Mitrecic said he would wait two weeks until the county’s actuarial study is presented before taking up the issue again. “I still believe we need to look at spouses and dependents,” Mitrecic said. “I don’t know how the numbers are so small when we have 900 spouses. Retirement benefits have been the downfall of municipalities.” By removing all benefits to spouses and dependents of retirees, the savings would amount to about $260,000 in 2030, County Human Resources Director Stacey Norton said. In 2040, she continued, the savings would nearly double to more than $700,000. This assumes, however, that health care costs and other variables remain predictable in the interim.

“That could be one claim,” Norton said. There are five risk profiles, she said. The most severe profiles are those requiring the most access to health care. Even though a comparatively small number of retirees fall in that category, the expense of health care in those instances account for almost 60 percent of the overall healthcare costs. A plan that would produce immediate savings, Norton said, would be to ramp up efforts at promoting the county’s nascent wellness program.

‘I don’t know how the numbers are so small when we have 900 spouses. Retirement benefits have been the downfall of municipalities’ Commissioner Joe Mitrecic Norton said she has found that almost 20 percent of county-covered employees, dependents and spouses have no primary care physician. Only 16.1 percent of those covered by the county use their free annual physical and only 56.1 percent use the free annual well child visit, Norton said. According to Norton, the county covers almost 4,800 people. CareFirst, the county’s provider, has already offered $25,000 in credits to be used for wellness services, she said. The com-

missioners agreed to allow those credits to be split — $10,000 worth for county employees and $15,000 for board of education employees. At the request of the commissioners, Norton also provided statistics comparing what neighboring counties and municipalities offer their employees to what Worcester provides. Her findings concluded that Worcester’s change from covering 90 percent of the insurance cost to an 80-20 split with employees this fiscal year puts the county behind the others for that benefit. For county employees, Wicomico and Dorchester each offer 85-15 splits, with Wicomico offering a 75-25 split for dependents, Talbot has a 90-10 split with an 85-15 for dependents — Somerset offers the same but with a 75/25 split for dependents. Employees of the Wicomico and Somerset Boards of Education get 9010 splits for the employee and 70-30 and 85-15 splits for dependents respectively, but Wicomico reverts to a 70-30 split for a retiring employee only. Somerset’s structure maintains coverage, like Worcester’s does, into retirement. Salisbury covers active employees fully and offers a 75-25 split for dependents until retirement when it goes 50-50 for retirees and dependents. Ocean City’s plan only the retiring employee only at an 80-20 split.

Boardwalk condos Plans were approved to add 10 condominium units above the existing Boardwalk retail and restaurant space between Fourth and Fifth Streets, which currently houses a Sunsations and a Taphouse restaurant. Three stories of three units each are planned, as well as a penthouse unit inside the sloped roof on the top floor. The current building is only a year old, having been constructed on the lot formerly occupied by the Hampton House. The new structure was built with basement-level parking, and additional parking for the proposed new condos will be located on a lot on the west side of Baltimore Avenue.

Park Place addition The Park Place Hotel, on the Boardwalk between Second and Third Streets, is planning to add two floors of rooms, as well as a rooftop pool and bar/restaurant area, to the top of its existing facility. Several rooms in the existing hotel will also be renovated into larger suites. “They’re reducing their unit count on the lower levels and essentially shifting those units to the upper levels ... which is consistent with our density regulations,” said city Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith. The Park Place also owns an older building behind the hotel, facing Baltimore Avenue, which currently house a donut shop. This building will be torn down to create additional parking

Burger King replacement The now-vacant fast food restaurant at the 118th Street Food Lion shopping center, formerly occupied by Burger King, will be rebuilt into a proposed three-unit building for new commercial tenants. The building will be roughly 12,000 square feet, split up into three stores, considerably larger than the 4,000 square foot Burger King, which gave up its lease on the property several months ago. Despite the increased size, the shopping center has a net surplus of parking, given the city’s current specification of one space per 225 square feet. This also allows up to 25 percent of the shopping center’s total area to be used as restaurant space. “Even if they were to get new food and beverage tenants, they would still have enough parking,” said city Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith. “They’ve got a surplus of parking even if they pass the 25 percent threshold.” Some of the shopping center’s existing spaces will be removed and turned into additional landscaping in order to meet city drainage requirements.

for the new rooms. Additionally, the outdoor pool area currently located on top the hotel’s covered entrance, off the alley running between Second and Third Streets, will be enclosed in glass as a yearround swimming facility. “We’re going to enclose that with glass and make it the indoor pool, and the outdoor pool will now be on the roof overlooking the beach,” said architect Jack Mumford of BeckerMorgan Group. “It’s very challenging structurally. We’re having to go back and remediate some of the columns to support it ... it’s an interesting project.”

Pickup down to once per week until May 9 when summer timetable returns (Oct. 9, 2015) The Town of Ocean City will resume its winter trash collection schedule on Monday, Oct. 12. Residential trash collections will be reduced to one day per week, while commercial trash collections will be reduced to three days per week. The trash collection schedule will be as follows: Residential: (waste wheelers): Monday: Oceanside (75th Street to 146th Street); bayside (75th Street to 135th Street).

Tuesday: All areas (Inlet to 74th Street); bayside (136th Street to 146th Street). Commercial: (Front-end and 300-gallon containers) Monday, Wednesday, Friday: All areas. This trash collection schedule will be in effect until May 9, 2016. For more information about the Town of Ocean City’s Solid Waste Division, visit www.oceancitymd .gov/Public_Works/solidwaste.ht ml. In addition to the solid waste winter schedule, the Town of Ocean City would like to remind citizens that administrative offices would be closed on Monday, Oct. 12 in observance of Columbus Day.

Showell Elem. replacement budget slashed by county By Brian Gilliland Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) While all parties are breathing a sigh of relief that the project is moving along after nearly a year, the true test of how to replace Showell Elementary will come as the county board of education figures out how to work with significantly less money than they wanted. The Worcester County Commissioners Tuesday reduced the project’s budget from the early estimates of about $54.6 million to almost $37.2 million, leaving the school board to decide how to proceed. “The good news is the commissioners got off the dime and made a decision,” Board of Education President Bob Rothermel said. Similar to the budget negotiations that occurred earlier this year, the board will take the commissioner’s decision and see what it can do to deliver a facility that educators, parents and students can live with. “We have a great deal to go back and talk about with the changes that took place today. We’ve got to start looking at what we want for the children of Showell Elementary,” Dr. Jerry Wilson, superintendent of schools, said. Some of those changes hit earlier than others, as the commissioners also needed to approve funding for the architectural and engineering fees, based upon the total project scope. However, Wilson’s estimate of those fees, $570,000, was based upon the previous budget. As such, the number required adjustment, which left the schools with about $255,000 — less than half of the requested amount. Commissioner Joe Mitrecic warned the board about micromanaging the funds, but was the lone dissent when the issue came to a vote. Commission President Jim Bunting said he thought the schools were looking at these redevelopment projects the wrong way. “The board of education needs to have a number in mind and build to fit that number. I think we have a number that works,” he said. To justify this decision, the commissioners compared the proposed budget of Showell to at least seven different school construction projects in the state.

None of the schools included in the comparison had close to the construction costs first proposed for Showell Elementary. The closest was New Northeastern School in Howard County, estimated to be completed in 2018 at a cost of about $40.5 million. The least expensive comparison project was South Dover Elementary in Delaware with a budget of almost $18.8 million. Each of these two schools is listed with a capacity exceeding the Maryland State Department of Education enrollment for Showell of 436. The footprints of these buildings also vary. South Dover is easily the smallest, with a footprint of a hair over 66,000 square feet. Showell is next with a footprint reduced from the proposed 104,000 square feet to 90,000 square feet and New Northeastern is listed at 102,000 square feet. The new budget does not reflect the actual costs to the county. According to an analysis by the county and prepared for the school board, the project cost is estimated at $37.1 million. Three years of inflation at 2 percent are included, which adds almost $1.8 million, for a subtotal of $38.9 million. The county estimates almost $9 million in state aid for the project, which leaves very nearly $30 million to be bonded by the county with an annual debt service of $2.7 million. To pay for the school, the county is assuming real property increases of 1.5 percent in fiscal 2018 and one percent in fiscal years 2019 and 2020. No income tax increases are anticipated, and a recordation tax increase for fiscal years 2017-2019 in an indeterminate amount are also anticipated. All other revenues are assumed to be constant. Increased expenditures are also anticipated, with salary, operating and capital increases expected. Taking these factors into account, the county estimates a $1.5 million surplus next fiscal year, a $3.6 million surplus in fiscal 2017 and another $1.4 million surplus in fiscal 2018 before things take a turn. In fiscal 2019 a shortfall of $2.3 million is expected and a shortfall of $8.2 million is expected in 2020. These figures were prepared without including the county’s budget stabilization fund.

Pulling fire alarms Ocean City police officers arrested Ryan Wuthrich, 26, of Crownsville, Md. after he pulled and destroyed two fire alarms in a condominium on Oct. 1. The Ocean City Fire Department and police determined the fire alarms were activated falsely after one was found partially ripped out of the wall and the other’s lid completely removed, according to the report. Police reported a witness said he saw Wuthrich pull the alarm and, after confronting him, the suspect ran down the stairs. Wuthrich’s description was broadcast and he was located shortly after in a nearby parking lot. He was arrested and charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property and two counts of knowingly pulling a fire alarm for no reason.

Assaults Justin Racelis, 30, of Oxford, N.J., was arrested on Oct. 2 for assaulting two people in the midtown area. Ocean City police officers were flagged down by a citizen who saw a fight occurring in a parking lot. Upon arrival, the officers threatened to use their Tasers and noticed a folding penknife lying three feet away from Racelis, the report stated. Police reported a witness stated she was walking on the sidewalk down Coastal Highway with her boyfriend and friends when Racelis approached displaying a knife and slashed the grocery bag in her hand. In addition, her boyfriend said he got into an argument with Racelis before he pulled out a knife and thrust it at him, according to the report. Racelis was arrested and charged with two counts of first- and second-degree assault and recklessly endangering the life of another.

Trespassers Ocean City police officers responded to the midtown area after a complainant reported that hundreds of disorderly people had gathered under a building on Oct. 1. When police arrived, numerous people began to leave, although several

stayed and police gave trespassing citations to five men: Wayne Chamberlain, 24, of Chalfont, Pa., Kenric Meyer, 23, of Jamison, Pa., Joseph Polish, 26, of Warrington, Pa., Christopher Ramdat, 18, of Derwood, Md. and Gary Gutierrez-Ioza, 20, of Germantown, Md. Public Affairs Specialist for the Ocean City Police Department Lindsay Richard said there were “No Tresspassing” signs posted and gathering under buildings was a common occurrence over the weekend because of the rain.

Burglary Levin Martin, 31, of Ocean City was arrested on Sept. 25 for breaking into a woman’s apartment. Police reported Martin used a credit card to bypass her locked door and the victim was able to escort him out, but he continued to bang on the door, curse and yell. During this time, dispatchers informed officers that Martin had three Worcester County Circuit Court warrants for failure to pay child support. The Ocean City Police Department has arrested Martin three separate times from July 27 to Sept. 25 involving service calls to the same property. He was arrested and charged with fourth-degree burglary.

No license Dashon Drummond, 23, of Berlin was arrested on Sept. 27 for driving without a license and possessing more than 10 grams of marijuana. While driving on Coastal Highway, an Ocean City police officer realized Drummond’s license was suspended and revoked for driving under the influence. After stopping him, the officer smelled what he believed to be burned marijuana coming from the vehicle, according to the report. Police reported a search of the car revealed four individually packed bags of marijuana and two cell phones. Drummond was arrested for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and additionally charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia and driving on a suspended license. Currently, Drummond is on probation and is wearing an ankle bracelet monitor.

WORLD WAR II: PIERRE LAVAL

Trial, execution of Vichy minister Pierre Laval

By Peter Ayers Wimbrow III Contributing Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) This week, 70 years ago, former French wartime President and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Interior and Information, Pierre Laval, was on trial for his life, standing accused of betraying his country. Monsieur Laval was tried by the same tribunal that tried Marshal Henri Pétain in July and that had sentenced the old marshal to die. However, Marshal Pétain was held in far higher regard than Monsieur Laval, and it showed in the quality of the proceedings – and in the fact that the marshal’s sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. Marshal Pétain was a genuine war hero from the First World War, while Laval was looked upon as a mere opportunistic politician. In 1913, Laval was living with his wife and only child and working as a lawyer in Paris, when he was elected, as a Socialist, to the French Chamber of Deputies, which seat he held for six years. He was elected mayor of Aubervilliers in the northeastern suburbs of Paris in 1923, an office that he still held at the time of his execution. The following year he regained his seat in the National Assembly. He was appointed minister of public works in 1925. For the next few years, as French governments came and went, he served as undersecretary to the premier and minister of justice. He was elected Senator in 1927 and became minister of labor on March 2, 1930. On Jan. 27, 1931, French President Gaston Doumergue asked him to form a government, which he did and which lasted for three years. In the meantime, he had been named Time’s “Man of the Year” for 1931. After Laval’s government fell, he served in the new government, first as minister of colonies, and then, in October 1934, as foreign minister. He was appointed prime minister again in 1936. As it became clear in the spring of 1940 that France would be defeated

by Germany, Marshal Pétain was asked to form a new government. The marshal was serving as French ambassador to Spain when the call came. He appointed Laval as his vicepresident and minister of foreign affairs, but dismissed him on Dec. 13, 1940. In April 1942, the German ambassador to France “suggested” that Laval be brought back into the government. Reichsminister for Propaganda Dr. Joseph Goebbels wrote in his diary that “Laval will enter the Government in a few days’ time as Prime Minister. This is a tremendous advantage for us . . . he is developing into the most sensational and mysterious personality of present day international politics. We could hardly find a better man than Laval for our policies.” The France that Pétain and Laval governed was an emasculated, emaciated version of pre-war France. It was emasculated because, according to the armistice it signed with Germany, the Germans occupied threefifths of the country, including the Atlantic and Chanel coasts and Paris. It was emaciated because it was defeated and much of its resources were appropriated by the Germans for their war effort. The capital was relocated to the resort town of Vichy, in “unoccupied” France. Hence the name “Vichy France.” After the Allied invasion of French North Africa in November 1942, the Germans occupied the entire country, but the French still operated the civil government. The Vichy government was recognized by the U.S., U.S.S.R., Canada, Australia and other countries. A few months after the Allied invasion of France, the Germans relocated the French government to Germany. As Gen. George S. Patton’s Third Army approached their location, Laval and his wife were flown to Barcelona. After receiving intense pressure from Gen. de Gaulle, the Spanish government sent him back 90 days later and he and his wife were taken into custody by the Americans and turned over to the French.

Pierre Laval

Marshal Pétain and Laval were both accused of treason because of their self-confessed collaboration with the Germans. What most forgot was that the Germans initially held more than 1.5 million French soldiers as POWs. They were to be repatriated upon the execution of a peace treaty when the war with Great Britain ended, which, both the Germans and the French expected would occur shortly after the armistice between France and Germany. When it didn’t happen, Germany continued to hold that ace in any negotiations with the French government. In addition, France was occupied by the German Wehrmacht. Pétain and Laval continued to manuever, as best they could, to ensure the best conditions for their citizens. They even succeeded in getting some of the POWs released. That manuevering required a certain amount of cooperation – or “collaboration” – with the Germans, such as the assistance in gathering and transporting Jews to the camps. In his trial, which began on Oct. 4, 1945, Laval was represented by Jacques Baraduc, Albert Naud and Yves-Frédéric Jaffré. The prosecutor was the same as for Marshal Pétain’s trial in July: Attorney-General André Mornet. The presiding judge was also the same: Paul Monogiabaux, president of the Supreme Court of Appeals. On the first day of the trial, Laval’s lawyers did not appear on his behalf,

instead sending a letter to the court protesting the speed with which the case was proceeding, as they had not an opportunity to even meet with their client, let alone investigate and prepare a defense, alleging that the purpose of the haste was political, and asking to be discharged from the case. The proceedings disintegrated into shouting matches between Judge Monogiabaux and Laval. The judge confirmed Laval’s lawyers’ allegations when he announced that the trial must continue, as it had to be completed prior to elections scheduled for Oct. 21 The jury, which was decidedly anti-Laval, chimed in with catcalls and insults. On the second day, things got worse. On the third day, Laval’s lawyers, having been admonished by the president of the Paris Bar Association, returned to court with their client. At that point, Laval protested against the proceedings and their tenor, stated that he did, “...not want to be an accomplice” to such a travesty. When the court returned from its next recess, Laval was absent from the courtroom and remained so for the balance of the case against him. The verdict and sentence having been determined before the trial began, Pierre Laval was, of course, convicted on Oct. 9, 1945 and sentenced to die. He was executed by firing squad, at 12:32 p.m. on Oct. 15, 1945. The execution had been delayed by a vain attempt at suicide, which required the doctors to save him for execution. Because of his weakened state, the firing squad was brought from Fort de Châtillon to Fresnes Prison, where he was being held. NEXT WEEK: LÁSZLÓ BÁRDOSSY

DR. NADINE HARMON CLIFTON-FEARS Berlin Dr. Nadine Clifton-Fears, age 83, passed away on Friday, Oct. 2, 2015 at Coastal Hospice at the Lake in Salisbury. Born in Milton, Del. on Jan. 23, 1932, she was the youngest child of Rouse C. Harmon and Rose Taylor Harmon Porter. Nadine lived most of her life (from 1941 N. Clifton-Fears on) in the Berlin area. She lived in the same home that her first husband built in 1951 for over 50 years. She spent her youth living on various farms with her mother and dad. Her early education began in Delaware and culminated with graduation from Buckingham High School in Berlin in June 1948. Shortly after the death of her father in June 1949, Nadine married Harry Carlton Clifton (d.1986) on Dec. 24, 1949. They had two sons, Jeffery Dean and Donald Gene. On June 20, 1990, Nadine married Frederick Humphries Fears, Sr. In 1961, Nadine entered Salisbury State Teachers College (now Salisbury University). She graduated with a BA degree in 1965 with a double major in geography and history. By 1971, she had earned her Masters of Education degree. In September 1965, she began her teaching career at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin. She taught U.S. History, geography, and various other Social Studies courses, including Advanced Placement World History for 13 years, during her 30 years at SDHS. She retired in June 1995 after earning her Ed. D degree in 1992 from the University of Maryland at College Park. Dr. Clifton-Fears held numerous assignments at SDHS besides just teaching. She was the Social Studies chairperson for 20 years and student council sponsor for seven years as well as a sponsor for many other clubs. She was also chairperson of the Steering Committee for the 1985 Middle States Evaluation of SDHS. Over the years she supervised several student teachers too. Dr. Clifton-Fears had many interests besides educational pursuits. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, reading (especially biographies and historical novels), computer work, puzzles (especially crossword), walking, scrapbooking and playing Scrabble. But most of all, she loved to travel which greatly benefited her in her teaching profession. She had traveled to all 50 states, most of them several times each. She especially enjoyed her four motor home trips to Alaska in 1978, 1993, 1995 and 1999. She likewise had visited all the provinces of Canada, several many times each, and the Yukon Territory.

WP boys’ soccer shuts out ESIAC rival, SC Jaguars

Stephen Decatur senior captain Olivia Kurtz takes the ball to goal during Monday's game against North Caroline in Berlin. Kurtz scored three goals in Decatur's 5-1 win. It was the Lady Seahawks' first victory of 2015 and the first game the squad has scored in this season.

SD field hockey scores first goals, earns first ‘15 win

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) The members of Stephen Decatur’s field hockey team were elated, to say the least, after Monday’s 5-1 victory over the North Caroline Bulldogs in Berlin. Not only was it the Lady Seahawks’ first win of the season, but it was also the first game the team has scored a goal in this year. “It’s extremely exciting. I feel more relieved than anything to finally get this under our belt and hopefully we’ll get some more wins before the season is over,” said senior captain Olivia Kurtz, who led the Seahawks with three goals and an assist. “We try hard and we play hard. It’s so great to show the team and the school that we can do it.” North Caroline led 1-0 at the end of the first half. “There was a lot of tension [in the first half],” Kurtz said. “It was very intense because we wanted it so bad. You could just feel we all wanted it.” During halftime, Decatur Coach Amy Matthews told the Seahawks they needed to be more aggressive and she was confident that “you guys can do this.”

Stephen Decatur junior Stella Cunningham pushes the ball forward during Monday's match against North Caroline.

“They just needed to get it in the goal. They just weren’t playing aggressive enough,” she said. “We took a lot of shots, but they weren’t going in. We weren’t getting it around the goalie.” About two minutes into the second half, Kurtz scored Decatur’s first goal of the season. She was immediately swarmed by several teammates who

congratulated her as they celebrated. “It was extremely exciting. It was really great to start the team off with the first of our five goals,” she said. “I just feel that everyone was really happy and we were just going to keep going from there. It was our first goal out of any game this season so I think See EXTREMELY Page 38

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) After 80 minutes of regulation and two 10-minute overtime periods, the Sept. 16 boys’ soccer game between Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, Worcester Prep and Salisbury Christian, ended in a draw in Salisbury. The two teams went Terry Underkoffler head-to-head again on Wednesday in Berlin, but this time Worcester was able to net two goals to win the game 2-0. “We played outstanding,” said Prep Coach Terry Underkoffler. “The way they possessed for a large portion of the game, especially the last 15-20 minutes when they had the two-goal lead, they didn’t play panicky, they knocked the ball around and we tired them out. “We’ve changed the way we play,” he continued. “Our whole system has changed. It’s more of a free-flowing system and we did that because we didn’t have two natural strikers. We are a team that has a ton of midfielders and we designed a system that benefits them.” Six minutes into the game, junior Seth Lewis slotted a ground pass to junior captain Owen Nally who finished the shot toward the lower left corner. With a little over 16 minutes left in the game, Nally found junior captain Patrick Petrera, who was coming through the middle. He shot to the right near post and Worcester led 2-0. Senior Charlie Pritchard made six saves in the shutout. Underkoffler praised the defensive play of several Mallards, with special kudos to junior sweeper Brendan Miller, senior Ross Dickerson, sophomore Brenner Maull and junior Max Bisaha. “Our defense was so effective. We shut them down,” Underkoffler said. “Their best player couldn’t turn and face the goal.” Dickerson’s job on Wednesday was to mark Salisbury’s top offensive player, Ryan Spadin. Dickerson only allowed him to get one shot off late in the game. “He’s a very good player. I just stayed on his toes the whole time because if I gave him a little bit he could do a lot with it so I was right on his back and didn’t giving him anything,” Dickerson said. “My teammate, Wyatt Richins, helped me out so it wasn’t just me the whole time, but I think I acSee WP Page 38

Matthews said about the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first goal. Junior Logan Figgs gave Decatur the go-ahead goal with a little over 16 minutes remaining in the game. Junior captain Sara Mitrecic boosted the home teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to two goals at the 10-minute mark. Kurtz scored her second goal with 3:47 on the clock. Her hat trick came with 1:18 left to play. Senior Sophia Clemente played in the goal for Decatur. She stopped seven North Caroline shots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was even in the first half and then I think in the second half we dominated. They did well, they got

Matthews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s things we still need to work on, but it gives them the confidence that they can do it.

Worcester Prep junior captain Owen Nally flicks the ball behind him during Wednesday's game against Salisbury Christian in Berlin. He scored Worcester's second goal in the team's 2-0 shutout.

(Oct. 9, 2015) The Offshore Powerboat Association planned to reschedule the Ocean City Nationals for the weekend of Oct. 16-18, but due to lack of available participants, enthusiasts will have to wait until next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all have full time jobs and when it gets changed it throws them off,â&#x20AC;? said Phil Houck, promoter of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always next year and we plan on having the races in May or October.â&#x20AC;?

The event was slated to take place Oct. 3-4, but it was canceled due to poor weather conditions from a norâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;easter. The Ocean City World Championship race dates back to 1992 with a seven or eight year hiatus before returning to the resort just a few years ago with the help of Houck and OPA President Edward Smith.

Seahawks top Clippers in second match-up “It was a great night for Decatur volleyball,” Coach Patrick says after victory

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) When the Stephen Decatur and James M. Bennett volleyball teams met in Berlin on Sept. 16, the visiting Clippers pulled out a 3-2 victory. After suffering the loss, the Lady Seahawks were looking forward to Monday’s rematch on the Clippers’

court in Salisbury. Decatur won the first game 25-20 and took the second 25-21. Bennett earned 25-19 and 25-20 victories in the third and fourth games, respectively. Before the fifth and final game, Decatur Coach Sara Patrick told her players how proud she was of them and they just needed to stay strong as a team. The Seahawks won the fifth game 15-9. “The last game we played against Bennett was so close. The team went in confident and hungry for the win,”

Patrick said. “During the game, [senior] Ellen [Bargar] did a great job as captain keeping the team focused and positive. It was a great night for Decatur volleyball.” Bargar finished the match with seven aces, three kills, 11 assists and four digs. Sara Patrick Junior Lexi Fleeger chipped in with five aces, two kills, two blocks, three assists and two digs. Lauren Laque, a senior, contributed

with two aces and 13 digs. Senior Taylor Lago tallied one ace, three kills, a block and a dig. “The girls played really well. They were strong at the net and made some great plays,” Patrick said. “In the two games we lost, the team made some service and coverage errors. I am so proud of their teamwork and dedication.” Decatur will take a trip to Hurlock to play the North Dorchester Eagles on Monday at 5:30 p.m. When the two teams went head-to-head on Sept. 21, Decatur won 26-24, 25-23 and 25-23.

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) The Stephen Decatur and James M. Bennett golf teams have been battling back and forth for the top spot in the Bayside Conference South this season. On Tuesday at Great Hope Golf Course in Westover, Decatur won the eight-school competition to move back into a two-way tie for first place in the Bayside South. The Seahawks shot a 174, and sophomore Matt Kinsey led Decatur with a 41. Captain Matt Kristick and Tanner Leonard, both juniors, each scored 42s. Junior Hailey Brown carded a 49. Bennett finished in second place with a 176 and Parkside took third with a 191. “We are still not playing to our potential from top to bottom. In a way, we got lucky that Bennett didn’t bring their ‘A’ game either,” said Decatur Coach Jim Krall. “When we really start playing well, which will happen eventually, I will feel more comfortable going into matches. “Right now, it’s anybody’s match between Bennett and Decatur,” Krall continued. “I’m hoping [Tuesday’s] win will give us the momentum going into [Wednesday’s] match that we need desperately.” The next day at Green Hill Country

Club in Quantico, Bennett took top honors, shooting a 174. Decatur finished second with a 178. Kinsey led the Seahawks with a 41. Kristick tallied a 42, Leonard a 45 and Brown a 50. Parkside was third with 186. Bennett’s victory put the team one match ahead of Decatur in the Bayside South with one final competition remaining. “It’s been an exciting and relentless battle all season with Bennett High School. They put together four decent scores that edged us by four strokes,” Krall said Wednesday night. “As I’ve been stating all season, it takes four decent scores to win a match this year. Our backs are up against the wall, but our heads are high and we look forward to the challenge at Nutters Crossing [Thursday].” Yesterday’s (Thursday’s) match at Nutters Crossing Golf Club in Salisbury (played after Ocean City Today press time) determined the Bayside South champions. If Bennett won, the Clippers then earned the title outright. If Decatur finished in first place the schools would be tied again and the team to represent the Bayside South in the conference championship would be determined by a coin toss. The Bayside South champion will face the Bayside North’s top team, Kent Island, in the conference championship at Queenstown Golf Links on Tuesday.

Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team trounces Salisbury, 8-0 By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team shut out the Salisbury Christian Jaguars 8-0 on Wednesday. “It wasn’t our best game. We weren’t doing the things we know how to do that we’ve been doing well all season,” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett. “In the first half we were not playing our style of soccer. We cleaned things up in the second half.” Freshman Delaney Abercrombie scored about 25 minutes into the game. She gave the Lady Mallards a two-goal lead shortly after. Sophomore Kaylee Dickerson netted Worcester’s third goal with less than a minute remaining in the first half. During the halftime break in Salisbury, Hartnett said the group talked about going back to basic principals of the game that has contributed to the squad’s success this season. The team responded. Junior Karlie Southcomb went one-on-one with the Salisbury goalie and put the ball in the back of the net early in the send half. Seniors Laura Issel and co-captain Grace Tunis and sophomores Anchita Batra and Sammy Wolpin scored one goal each in the second half. Freshman Grace Gardner started in

the goal for Worcester. Julia Godwin, a freshman, took over with about 30 minutes left in the game. They both recorded two saves. “We have to visualize the things we do right and move on from there,” Hartnett said. “I feel like we’re right where we’re supposed to be at this point. This is a hard working group of girls. They’re positive. They’re just a super nice group.” Worcester’s final match of the regular season is scheduled for Wednesday against the Salisbury School Dragons at 4 p.m. in Salisbury.

Decatur football squad struggles against N. Caroline

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) The Stephen Decatur football team just couldn’t turn things in its favor during Monday night’s game against the North Caroline Bulldogs in Berlin. “Murphy’s law. Whatever can go See DECATUR Page 41

Decatur football squad ready to take on Kent Co. Continued from Page 40 wrong, will go wrong,” Decatur Coach Bob Knox said after the Seahawks’ 4813 loss. “Part of it was North Caroline is a good football team. We were too sporadic. They outplayed us.” The game was originally scheduled to take place last Friday, but it was postponed due to stormy weather. The Bulldogs (5-0) scored three times in the first quarter to take a 21-0 lead. With just under five minutes remaining in the quarter, Decatur junior quarterback Darion McKenzie fired a pass from 27 yards out to junior Tyree Henry in the end zone. Sophomore John Ford’s extra-point kick was good. At halftime, the visiting Bulldogs had a 35-7 advantage. North Caroline led 48-7 in the fourth quarter, but Decatur did not give up. Senior captain Dryden Brous ran the ball 50 yards late in the game to make it 48-13. “Our kids didn’t quit. They kept fighting,” Knox said. Unfortunately, he said, the Seahawks played well only in spurts. “They made big plays and we didn’t. That’s why they’re undefeated,” Knox said. “We turned the ball over four times and every time we turned it over they scored. We were physical, we just weren’t as disciplined mentally as we should have been.” Junior Ed Zonnak led the Decatur defense with 11 tackles. The Seahawks will battle the Kent County Trojans in Worton, today, Friday, at 6:30 p.m. “They’re 3-2 also and they lost their last two games. It should be evenly matched, except we have to travel two and a half hours,” Knox said. “We have to corral No. 1 [Marcquan] Greene. We have to run the ball, move the ball between tackles, be physical and use play action passes.”

Lady Seahawks score big victory over Clippers

By Lisa Capitelli Managing Editor (Oct. 9, 2015) When the James M. Bennett girls’ soccer team came to Berlin on Sept. 16, the Clippers shut out Stephen Decatur 3-0. The Lady Seahawks traveled to Salisbury on Monday for the anticipated rematch and the squad edged out their opponent 3-2. “The difference between these two

games was our overall togetherness and positivity,” said Decatur junior Lexie VanKirk. “We knew what to expect this time and knew that the outcome would be the same if we didn’t all put our hearts into it and play together.” Coach Maggie Berke said the Seahawks came out a little slow, but they picked up their intensity quickly. VanKirk gave Decatur a 1-0 lead about 14 minutes into the game.

“With a 3-0 shutout the first time we played Bennett, the first goal was definitely relieving for everybody on the field and sideline,” VanKirk said. “I happened to be in the right spot at the right time to receive a beautiful cross from [junior] Mallory Vara and volleyed it right in.” Bennett tied it about 10 minutes later. Then, just before halftime, junior Jessica Wharton put the Seahawks on

top 2-1. Berke said the halftime talk was pretty positive and the girls were ready to take the field for the second half. Junior Brigitte Ardis boosted Decatur’s advantage to two goals with about 10 minutes left in the game. Bennett tallied its second goal with a few seconds remaining on the clock. Lexi Gausepohl, a senior, played in goal during the first half and junior Rachel Florek took over in the second half. They recorded three saves apiece. “This win was absolutely huge, not only for the Bayside, but for our confidence. Knowing that our goal of going to the Bayside championship two years in a row was in even closer reach is an absolutely amazing feeling,” VanKirk said. “We now have the confidence to take on anybody because we know we can accomplish anything together.” VanKirk said the Seahawks are humble and “after a day of glory” they were back to training and working hard to continue to improve. “Even though we won there is always room to get better and faster,” she said. “Like any other game, this was just another obstacle on the way to the Bayside championship.” Decatur took another step closer to an appearance in the conference title game with a 2-0 win over the Mardela Warriors on Wednesday in Berlin. Wharton put Decatur on the board eight minutes before halftime. VanKirk scored the Seahawks’ second goal about See WIN Page 43

OC Classics Tournament Oct. 17

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) The 14th annual OC Classics Tournament, featuring a number of martial arts tournaments and events, returns to the Ocean City Recreation and Park’s Department sports complex at Northside Park on 125th Street next Saturday, Oct. 17. During the event, Karate and jiujitsu tournaments will be broken down into categories including age, rank and weight classes with 200 competitors expected to enter. “Martial arts and jiu-jitsu is growing so much,” said Promoter Kem Waters, who along with Miles Moffit make sure the tournament runs smoothly each year. “Kids learn the art of discipline and respect and get to showcase their talent outside of their schools against students they may have never seen.” All of the judges are certified black belts in martial arts or jiu-jitsu and will critique participants in weapons, forms, breaking boards, self-defense and sparring categories. In martial arts, the top four competitors in each category receive awards, in jiu-jitsu the top three will be given awards and in the kids division, gold, silver and bronze metals will be presented. First place winners of the adult division receive title belts, and there will be a grand championship in martial arts for top black belts in sparring,

forms and weapons. Each grand championship gets $200. In jiu-jitsu, a female and male absolute division kick-down champion will each receive $200. All children 12 years and younger will take home an award, and the most supportive school at the event will receive cash prizes. “Currently, the top four schools have more than 28 competitors,” Waters said. The age divisions begin at 4 years old and go all the way up to adults in their 60s, he added. The competition has grown each year with more than 150 competitors and more than 300 spectators coming out in 2014. “It’s a great day for a martial arts fan or enthusiast,” Waters said. “We have competitors who come from all over the Mid-Atlantic, including New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.” More than 80 people have already registered by visiting www.oceancityclassics.com, downloading the registration form and emailing it to eskarate@gmail.com. “It’s a great way to develop confidence and it takes focus to perform in front of judges,” Waters said. “It’s incredible to see a 5-year-old showing such intensity and a great opportunity for kids to be awarded for their talent

against their peers.” Day-of-registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17 and the competitions are scheduled to start at 10 a.m. and continue into the evening. The on-site registration fee is $65 for the competitor’s first event and an additional $10 per category. There is a $15 admission for tournament spectators and children under 5 are free. For more information, call Waters at 410-430-1648 or Moffit at 410-726-1398, or visit www.oceancityclassics.com.

Win over JMB one step closer for SD to Bayside match Continued from Page 42 seven minutes into the second half. Gausepohl and Florek split time in the goal. Gausepohl stopped five Mardela shots and Florek recorded two saves. “They didn’t play to their full potential, but we mixed some people and positions up so that’s expected,” Berke said. “Offensively, they worked the ball really well but still need to get more goals.” Decatur will host the Wi-Hi Indians today, Friday, at 4 p.m.

Annual Restaurant Week begins Owners, chefs get creative during two-week event that includes 20 local eateries

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Locals and visitors should line up for Restaurant Week, which begins Sunday, Oct. 11 and continues through Oct. 25 offering awesome deals and specials on already low off-season prices. New this year, Ocean City’s fall Restaurant Week has a variety of specials at different rates with more than 20 restaurants participating in the resort. “What we are trying to do in the fall is have good deals on great food instead of price points because everyone has good deals already,” said Susan Jones, executive director of the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, which organizes the annual event. “October was recently named Shore Craft Beer Month in Ocean City and we challenged restaurants to create pairings or infuse craft beer in their food items. A handful have taken us up on it.” Touch of Italy on 66th Street will offer a Burley and Blue Brewer’s Board, which is a handcrafted antipasti board with cheeses and ham with a suggested pairing of Burley Oak

Secret Sauce on tap. The Original Greene Turtle on 116th Street and Horizons Restaurant in the Clarion on 101st Street have craft beer pairings with all of their entrees. Longboard Café on 67th Street will have a beerinfused cheese soup. “It’s cool, they did exactly what I wanted,” Jones said. “Craft beer is a movement that is catching fire nationwide and is a growing industry,” said Ann McGinnis Hillyer, publisher of ShoreCraftBeer.com and along with the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, Worcester County Tourism, the Town of Ocean City and the Brewers Association of Maryland are up for the Visionary Impact Award at the Maryland Tourism and Travel Summit on Oct. 29. Hillyer thinks the celebration of local craft beer by tourism and brewery professionals is the reason why they should win this award. “We have the locally produced world-class beer, we have the worldclass beauty,” she added. The two-week restaurant specials are designed to draw diners through the doors when business is slower and gives chefs an opportunity to create a unique menu or try out new ideas ranging from local pubs to fine dining. “Guests will try specials not normally on the regular menu and we get

creative to see if people like our new ideas,” said Matt Bayline, owner of Duffy’s Tavern on 129th Street. “It’s a trial and error and it’s fun to try new options.” Duffy’s will have a three-course dinner for $19.99, which comes with dessert and a soup or salad. Chicken Florentine, a 12-ounce Angus New York Strip, seafood stuffed tomato and a daily catch of the day will be the four dinner options. “At some places, it’s their busiest week of the year,” he said. “It’s a good program and has been a good two weeks for us.” The chef at Duffy’s for 30 years, Beverly Criner, and Bayline enjoy going to different places and trying out dishes to recreate or put a twist on. Talking about new items and trying them out keeps the menu fresh, he said. “We enjoy new people coming in to see us,” Bayline said. “It’s an interesting clientele that week and it’s fun catering to the foodies.” Owner of Jules Restaurant on 118th Street, Adam Sanders, agrees. “It’s a great opportunity and we love it,” Sanders said. “Everyone looks forward to it including the servers. It’s our last big hurrah until New Year’s Eve.” His Restaurant Week menu feaSee FOODIES Page 58

By Lauren Bunting Contributing Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Drone photography is an up-and-coming resource to deliver real estate imagery like never before when trying to sell a property. The use of drone videos and still photographs can offer perspective that no still photography can touch, especially on large parcels of land or waterfront property. But, in order to use drone photography to market property for sale, the photographer must be licensed with the Federal Aviation Administration. During September, the National Association of Realtors President Chris Polychron testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet at a hearing entitled “Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Commercial Applications and Public Policy Implications.” NAR testified on the growing interest in the use of drones, their commercial application in the real estate industry, and Realtor perspectives on legislative and regulatory efforts to advance safe drone use in the commercial space. “Commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems, or UASs, has the potential to create new jobs and businesses specializing in their uses,” Polychron said in testimony before the subcommittee. “NAR and its members are excited about these possibilities but also understand the need to balance them with protecting the privacy and safety of citizens and other users of the country’s National Air Space. As end-users of drone technology, Realtors want clear regulation that permits the commercial application of UASs in a way that is affordable to users and safe for their communities, both on the ground and in the air.” NAR has been working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration and others to advance a responsible approach to commercial drone use.

Foodies rejoice as chefs cut loose during fall promo Continued from Page 57 tures the standard three courses for $30 including butternut squash soup, a smoked fish plate, stuffed portobello, a house salad and five additional appetizers. For main dishes, diners have seven options to choose from such as drunken duck breast, cheese ravioli, boneless braised short ribs and a filet mignon. If seated by 6 p.m., guests receive a free glass of wine. “It’s a little something for everyone,” Sanders said. “We have the best smoked fish in the world and make all our food in house including soups and sauces.” Jules Restaurant has participated in Restaurant Week since its inception because “it gets people to come out and try different restaurants they can afford.” “I love Ocean City and we have great restaurants here,” Sanders said. “This gives people an opportunity to come try them.” The Skye Bar & Grill on 66th Street will offer a two for $20 lunch menu and at dinnertime three courses for $30 including appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. “It’s good marketing,” said Chef Gary Beach, who joined the team of Chef Barney Bowen and Pastry Chef Andy Caswell in August. “People can come try out a spot they have never been.” Lunch options include cheesesteaks, pulled pork sandwiches, bacon cheeseburgers, a grilled tuna sandwich with mango salsa and seven others. “You try great food for a moderate price,” said Roger Cebula, owner of the Skye Bar & Grill. “It’s great for people to come out and try the restaurant.” The special dinner menu includes a choice of starters such as tuna nachos, clams casino, raw oysters and shrimp. A Jamaican roasted half chicken with roasted red pepper, a single broiled lump crab cake with chipotle tartar sauce, a roasted garlic rubbed bleu cheese crusted petite filet with truffle demi-glace and blackened Faroe Island salmon with Tasso ham gravy make up entrée options along with six others. Desserts are homemade by Caswell with a triple-layer carrot cake with cream cheese icing, a vanilla crème brulee, chocolate decadent cake, peanut butter pie and French toast bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream and a Jim Beam maple syrup glaze. The Skye Bar & Grill will also have wine pairings, Cebula said. Jones brought the idea for Restaurant Week back from a travel summit on the western shore in 2007, she said. “It’s an opportunity for both restaurants and diners,” Jones added. “Chefs create what they want and diners get great deals — it’s a win-win. It also drives the local economy, puts tips in

cate meighan inside going out think that I had to experience at least one really bad storm event to officially call myself a coastal resident and last weekend was totally that event. While Hurricane Joaquin ended up having little effect, if any at all, on us here in Ocean City, the Nor’easter ahead of it sure did wreak some havoc. While it obviously could have been so much worse, downtown OC did flood a few times over leaving residents with a real mess on their hands. I’m really impressed by just how quickly the Town of OC had the inlet parking lot and beach reopened. Equally impressive was their determination in keeping residents updated on the status of the storm, as well as the clean-up efforts along the way. Many of last weekend’s previously scheduled events were either rescheduled or completely canceled due to the bad weather and so that’s where we’ll start this week. The 20th annual Wine Fest was originally washed out last weekend and many of you have asked me if it has been completely canceled. I’m happy to tell you that it has now been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 31 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days in the inlet parking lot. Wine Fest at the beach will be featuring wineries from across the East Coast. Local Delmarva cuisine, micro-brewed beers and regional live music are just some of the highlights that you can expect from Wine Fest. Check www.winefest.com for more info. On Saturday, Oct. 10, Buddy’s Crabs & Ribs at 221 Wicomico Street and the bay will host an event to benefit the Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation. The event, hosted by Shelley Leach, will run from 4-8 p.m. and the buffet menu includes six fresh oysters on the half, Buddy’s popular BBQ ribs, roasted potatoes, oyster stew and much more. The cost is $50 per person. For more information, call 410-207-3215. Burley Oak Brewing Company will be on hand to offer up a sampling and there will also be a cigar See CATE Page 63

Hundreds of cars fill the inlet parking during the 2014 Endless Summer Cruisin' event in Ocean City. More than 2,300 hot rods, classics, muscle cars, trick trucks and customs will be featured this weekend during the 18th annual Endless Summer Cruisin' show.

Endless Summer Cruisin’ underway Four-day show features hot rods, classics, muscle cars trick trucks and customs

By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) More than 2,300 hot rods, classics, muscle cars, trick trucks and customs will be riding down Coastal Highway this weekend during Ocean City’s 18th annual Endless Summer Cruisin’ event. Activities began yesterday, Thursday, and will continue through Sunday at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on 40th Street and downtown at the inlet parking lot. Organizers are expecting more than 100,000 spectators throughout the four-day event. “It’s a chance to see some of the hottest show cars in the mid-Atlantic,” said event promoter Meredith Herbert. “A major reason for the continued success of the event, in addition to the location, is the Cruisin’ format where participants have the pleasure of driving from one location to the next all day.” Endless Summer Cruisin’ kicked

off with a car parade on the Boardwalk from North Division Street to the inlet Thursday morning. Spectators can catch two additional car parades Friday and Saturday at 8 a.m. with the same route. “It’s an opportunity to see some pretty amazing vehicles drive down the iconic Ocean City Boardwalk,” Herbert said. Highlights of the weekend include appearances from Rachel De Barros of “All Girls Garage” who will be at the inlet on Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and inside the convention center on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, actress Joyce DeWitt, “Janet” from the hit TV show “Three’s Company,” will meet fans at the convention center on Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the inlet on Saturday during the same hours and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the inlet. The 35th annual Hot Rod and Custom Car Show is held in conjunction with Cruisin’ and takes place Friday and Saturday inside the convention center in addition to a Ford vs. Chevy showdown. “Spectators can vote for their favorite Ford or Chevy,” Herbert said. “On Saturday, during the Hot Rod &

Custom Car Show awards, we will announce the winning Ford, Chevy and overall winner.” Attendees can catch live music from Golden Touch on Friday and Saturday from 12:30-4 p.m. or check out vendors selling automotive products, jewelry, T-shirts, vintage treasures, antiques and beauty supplies. New this year, at the Cruisin’ Pit Stop, car enthusiasts can attempt to be the fastest Micro Stock car driver or tire changer. Ronnie Milsap will perform on Saturday night inside the Ocean City Performing Arts Center on 40th Street. The show is part of his farewell tour. Tickets start at $45 and can be purchased by visiting the Ocean City box office inside the convention center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-551SEAT. “We are very excited to have Ronnie Milsap live in concert,” Herbert said. “Ronnie will be performing some of his top 40 hits including ‘Smokey Mountain Rain,’ ‘Lost in the Fifties Tonight,’ ‘I Wouldn’t Have Missed it for the World’ and ‘Stranger in My House.’” See DEWITT Page 62

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Dr. Gupta, Akstinas discuss mammograms, self-breast exams and early detection By Kara Hallissey Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) By the end of the year, nearly 5,000 women in Maryland will be diagnosed with breast cancer, which makes self-breast exams, mammograms and early detection essential to help boost chances for survival. “The good [thing] is it’s easily diagnosable, curable with early detection and has an inDr. Roopa Gupta credible amount of research behind it,” said Dr. Roopa Gupta, medical oncologist at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin. “The bad part is it’s a common cancer and there’s not much people can do about prevention.” Doctors recommend having an annual mammogram after turning 40 years old and adding a monthly selfbreast exam to routines can help detect abnormalities. “Women should know how to properly give themselves a breast exam,” said Nicki Akstinas, a nurse practitioner in women’s heath at Atlantic General Hospital. “A good relationship between provider and patient is important when discussing concerns.” One of the scariest statistics is more than 80 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a family history. “You never know with breast cancer and everyone is different,” Akstinas said. Preventing breast cancer might be impossible, but there are a few ways Gupta mentioned that can be helpful. Eating well-balanced meals, exercising a few days a week, taking a multivitamin, eliminating high animal fats in

diets, limiting alcohol intake and not smoking are all lifestyle changes to help prevent the risk for breast cancer. “Screenings, early detection and a healthy lifestyle is the key,” Gupta said. Throughout her years as a nurse practitioner, Akstinas has seen patients refuse to get a mammogram and the consequences can be their life. “I recommend mammograms for years and they come back with late stages of cancer, which could have been prevented if it was detected sooner,” Akstinas said. Gupta and Akstinas recommend women have a trusted gynecolNicki Akstinas ogist who gives them a breast exam annually and teaches them how to do it properly. In addition, they both said women tend to put their families, jobs and other obligations before themselves. “There is no reason to put mammograms off, and I am a big believer in prevention techniques,” Gupta said. “Mammograms supplemented with a monthly self-breast exam not during your cycle and an annual check at the gynecologist are the best screening tools.” There are many local programs and services in the area for people diagnosed with cancer including free wigs for patients, a Cancer Survivors Net-

work and a 24-hour-a-day cancer information center. “The most important advice in this day and age is to remember you’re exposed to instant and unregulated information every day,” Gupta said. “Keep it simple and be self-aware of your body, especially the breasts. Early detection is the best chance for a cure.” The Look Good Feel Better program teaches patients how to cope with the cosmetic side-effects of treatment, Reach to Recovery is a one-on-one support visitation program where breast cancer survivors are trained to help new patients and Road to Recovery provides transportation for patients to treatments. The Hope Lodge in Baltimore provides lodging during treatment and the Patient Navigator Program gives support and advice to patients. “Breast cancer is so prevalent and everyone knows someone with the disease,” said Vivienne Stearns-Elliott, community director for the American Cancer Society Maryland Chapter. “The good news is more women are living longer because of early detection and treatment.” “Breast cancer is no longer a death sentence, but it is not a walk in the park either,” Akstinas said. “Early detection is the most important way to beat the disease.” For more information, visit www.cancer.org or call 800-227-2345.

Tickets cost $5 each or get six for $20. “People should attend because it’s a fun event supporting a great cause,” Katz said. “It’s an easy way to join the community and help raise awareness.” Jammin’ Out Cancer is one of almost a dozen fundraising events that make up the series. Other Pink Ribbon events include a fishing tournament, golf, tennis and mahjong tournaments and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K run and walk on the Boardwalk. Since its inception in 1996, the series has raised more than $1 million for the American Cancer Society, Katz said. Last year, about 150 people attended Jammin’ Out Cancer, raising $12,500

for breast cancer research and programs, she said. “The majority of the funds raised stay local,” Katz said. “They are used for education and awareness projects and patient programs and services.” Purchase tickets in advance for $20 by emailing Katz at amy-katz@hotmail.com or by visiting Wockenfuss Candies in West Ocean City and Chauncey’s Surf Shop on 54th Street. “The dedication of our committee, the Pink Ribbon Classic, to raise awareness of breast cancer and certainly the generosity of the town has kept Jammin’ going through the years,” Katz said. “It’s great to see so many individuals and businesses joining together to help finish the fight (against breast cancer.)”

Welcoming patrons to the 12th annual Jammin’ Out Cancer event at Seacrets on 49th Street last year, from left, are Susan Childs, Nancy Dofflemyer, and Judy Schoellkopf.

New dates for Wine on the Beach, Oct. 30-31

(Oct. 9, 2015) Wine on the Beach, which was originally slated to take place Oct. 2-3 in the Ocean City inlet parking lot but was canceled because of the storm, has been rescheduled for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 30-31. Additional wineries, craft vendors and fine artists and improved access to the oceanfront festival combine to make the upcoming fall classic the best by far.

The 20th edition of the annual Wine on the Beach will be held both days from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Twenty wineries from Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York will be bringing a full range of products for festivalgoers to sample and purchase by the glass, bottle or case. As attendance continues to grow, organizers have scrambled to keep the

lines moving and reduce waiting. An improved festival layout and better admission procedure promises to facilitate entrance and enhance the festival experience. Online ticket sales not only offer a reduced price, but provide expedited entrance at the gate. Advance tickets are available at the festival website, http://winefest.com,

until Thursday, Oct. 29. The $35 adult admission includes a souvenir wine glass, sampling tickets, and musical entertainment. Perennial favorite Bird Dog and the Road Kings will perform both days, along with other regional bands. Additional information is available on the website, or by calling event Coordinator Chris Nokes at 410-280-3306.

‘They all say that they appreciate something from home,’ Foultz says

By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Star Charities’ monthlong holiday collection for the troops started Oct. 1, as the nonprofit annually gathers nonperishable items for soldiers on active duty overseas. Organizer Anna Foultz said the collection began as an effort led by her late husband, Carl. “He started it, I forget how many years ago now, and then when he passed away five years ago, we decided to keep doing it until we can’t do it anymore,” she said. “It would be very heartbreaking not to do it and we love our soldiers. Anything we can do for them we do it.” Items such as toiletries are a priority, according to Foultz, who said the annual drive has always been well received by members of the military. “They all say that they appreciate something from home,” she said. “It makes them feel good, and like my husband said when he was in China, Burma and India, he was so worried because you couldn’t get toilet paper,

you couldn’t get powder and things that they needed. That’s how he got this started many years ago.” Keeping the memory of her husband, and his philanthropy, alive has also meant a great deal to Foultz. “It makes me feel so proud of my husband, who was so good about being in the service,” she said. “I feel close to the soldiers in a way that my heart is just lifted. I don’t live for anything else. What is there for me to live for except to help people? “I want to do whatever I can to make them feel good,” Foultz added. “Whatever I can do, that’s what I’m doing.” Foultz said people interested in contributing should look for the large black containers with the words, “holidays gifts for our soldiers.” The eight drop-off locations include libraries in Berlin, Ocean City and Ocean Pines, as well as the Community Center in Ocean Pines and the VFW on 66th Street in Ocean City. At the end of the month, the National Guard will pick up the items and distribute them to members of the military. For more information, call Foultz at 410-641-7667. Coming up, Star Charities will host its annual “Beef and Beer” fundraiser for wounded soldiers, Jan. 8 in Ocean Pines.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Two Locations Now Open

Brodetto fish soup similar to cioppino or bouillabaisse By Deborah Lee Walker Contributing Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) Understanding different cuisines is always a work in progress. Differences are understood but psychological variances need to be considered if successful meals are to prevail. Pleasing the American palate is a fastidious experience and one must open the door to current trends and creativity. Let us suppose an American chef is inspired by an Italian dish and decides to present it for a special occasion. He must cease thinking of himself as an American chef. Italians, as a society, have a different cultural background and the aspiring chef must comprehend this. In essence, he or she must recognize that Italians eat differently from Americans. Another food for thought presents itself for the American chef. If one wants to expand their repertoire to a means of universal appeal, authenticity is another consideration that must be explored. For example, does the American chef strive for validity or just a sense of a particular cookery? A meal is like a language, you have to

PAGE 71

choose the vocabulary that best meets your culinary objective. You also have to incorporate ingredients that your guests are familiar with, something that they are going to be able to interpret and appreciate. Cultural distinctions are a culmination of tradition and point of view. Brodetto is one of those classic dishes that was bound to make its way to the Italian kitchen. The famous fish soup is popular all along the Adriatic Coast, but in particular from the Veneto in the north through to the Abruzzo coast. There is a strong rivalry between the Romagna and neighboring Marche region in terms of brodetto and its traditions. The fish soup is similar to a cioppino or bouillabaisse. Brodetto is considered a poor people’s food. The wives of local fisherman made it with leftover fish that had little market value, and seemingly every cook had their own version. As Italy’s modern food practices were developing in the 19th century, the middle class snubbed brodetto; modern eater’s pernickety palate looked down on the idea of collecting fish scraps and embellishing them into a sophisticated soup. Times have changed and Italians who live along the Adriatic Coast are rediscovering this simple but incredible See IMPORTANT Page 72

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Important to use local, fresh fish when making brodetto Continued from Page 71 dish. To really understand brodetto, you must see where it begins. Brodetto starts long before one picks up a knife. First and foremost the fish must be fresh, the fresher the better. Also, the fish must be local; this reiterates the theme of freshness and exemplifies how the types of fish vary according to region. The particular combinations of fish are extremely important because a natural stock develops which distinguishes brodetto from other fish stews. The addition of calamari, mussels, or eel is again a regional decision. Onions, fennel, parsley, pepper and vinegar are the preferred additives. The cooking vessel is of major importance; a low-sided broad terracotta pot and a gentle flame ensure the maximum potential. Metal will also work but will transmit the heat faster. As in the case with all mixed fish stews, one adds the fish to the pot in succession. First add the larger pieces and those that cook slowly and then add the smaller pieces and quick cooking fish. Brodetto trivia: In harsh and tough times, in the absence of any substantial fish, the fisherman would add rocks to the broth, because of the small mollusks and algae clinging to them. The Eastern Shore and the Adriatic Coast are bountiful but cannot be put on a pedestal of comparison and equality. That being said, fish stew can be enjoyed year round no matter where one lives. The broth can be made in advance if time is of the essence. When the fruits of your effort have come together with gorgeous seafood and a fragrant broth, imagination you and that special person are in a little town somewhere on the Adriatic Coast enjoying a glass of vino and a true brodetto. Enjoy!

Historical society dinner, Oct. 25

(Oct. 9, 2015) Worcester County Historical Society will hold its annual fall dinner at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25, at the Ocean City Golf Club. In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Assateague Island National Seashore, Joseph Fehrer, coastal and lower shore project manager for the Nature Conservancy, will tell the story of the island during the transition from private ownership of the land to the establishment of the National Seashore in 1965. During the 1950’s, a group of investors had begun a development called Ocean Beach on the island. By the early

1960’s, nearly 6,000 lots had been sold. However, the Ash Wednesday storm of 1962 devastated the island and brought a halt to development and eventually the opportunity for the National Park Service’s acquisition of the island. The public is invited to attend this typical Eastern Shore buffet of cream of crab soup, ham, fried chicken, green beans, potatoes, slaw and dessert. The cost is $25 per person. Checks should be made out to: WCHS and sent to Bob Fisher, WCHS treasurer, 230 South Washington Street, Snow Hill, Md. 21863. The deadline is Sunday, Oct. 18.

Annual camp for youth dealing with death of loved one

(Oct. 9, 2015) Coastal Hospice invites children who have lost a loved one to attend Hope & Healing with Horses, a free bereavement camp, on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kindred Spirit Farm in Salisbury. This event is designed for children ages 6-14 who have experienced the death of a parent, grandparent, sibling or other close loved one in the past two years. It is open to both hospice and non-hospice families who reside in the four Lower Shore counties. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. “Children who have lost someone dear to them grieve in very different ways than adults,” said Alane Capen, president of Coastal Hospice, which hosts the event. “They may find it harder to express what they are really feeling.” Hope & Healing with Horses teaches children and their families strategies to express grief and reduce stress and isolation and gives them a chance to connect with others who have experienced a similar loss. The day camp uses horses as a tool for emotional growth and learning; the children ride, groom the horses and talk to them. Horses offer the children a simple but profound rela-

tionship and allow them to connect to a living being without the risk or rejection or criticism. Chaplains and social workers from Coastal Hospice, who are trained in bereavement support, conduct the camp and guide the children and their families through their feelings. No previous experience with horses is required. Children should wear closed-toe shoes for riding, and must be accompanied by a responsi-

ble adult. There will also be grief support activities for the adults who accompany the children. Lunch is provided. The event will take place rain or shine at Kindred Spirit Farm, 3191 Johnson Rd., Salisbury. This event is free, but registration is required by Oct. 21 by calling Melissa Dasher at 443-944-5846.

Worcester NAACP chapter to host Freedom Fund Banquet

By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) The Worcester County chapter of the NAACP will hold its annual Freedom Fund Banquet at Stephen Decatur Middle School in Berlin on Saturday, Oct. 17. The event returns for the third time in four years after taking a break last year because of a scheduling conflict with the NAACP’s election of officers. This year, for the first time, the banquet will double as an awards ceremony, honoring individuals, businesses and nonprofits. The list of honorees includes Al “Hondo” Handy from Ocean City, World World II veterans William Briddell and Virgil Armstrong, Highway Safety Activist Patricia Dufendach and Pocomoke City Police Chief Kelvin Sewell. The Sun Rise Church of Berlin and Atlantic Physical Therapy in Ocean Pines will also be recognized during the event. “I wanted to honor people within the community, because the people in the community make a difference,” Ivory Smith, president of the local NAACP chapter said. “People like Hondo Handy, who is one of the citizens of the year… he’s been doing a lot for over 30 years within the community.

“Sun Rise Church has done a lot in the community and Patty Dufendach was very inspirational in getting (Route) 113 lighting done and crosswalks there. People like her need to be recognized,” Smith continued. Smith said it was a no-brainer to honor the community’s WWII veterans, while in the case of Atlantic Physical Therapy, the business came to his attention after helping to rehabilitate the son of an NAACP member who was struck by a school bus on Flower Street. “They also do a lot for Stephen Decatur,” Smith said. “There’re doing a lot within the community and they’re doing a lot for our kids.” Briddell, who served in the United States Army during the World War II, said he would likely accept the award and enjoy the evening, rather than speak too extensively about his service. “It’s been so long now,” he said. “I was in quite a bit and I’m pretty old right now. But I did it. I was right with it, years back.” U.S. House of Representatives Member Donna Edwards (Democrat, 4th District) is the guest speaker. Smith said the theme of the evening is that the NAACP is a community organization that depends on its partners.

MASKED BEAUTIES The Black & Gold Cocktail Party to benefit the Art League of Ocean City was held on Sept. 16 at the Gateway Grand on 48th Street in Ocean City. Guests were greeted by committee members Lisi Ruczynski, left, and Nancy Fortney, shown wearing Venetian masks.

“We’re also about civil rights, but we’re a community organization and we need all the help that we can get in the community,” he said. “Every month, I have a speaker of some sort that’s giving knowledge to the people, but they’ve got to come out and they’ve got to want it. “I want people to come out and participate and be active in the community,” Smith continued. “Right now, I’m the youngest one [in the

OC Vintage License Plate Rally scheduled for Oct. 24 (Oct. 9, 2015) For the fifth year, residents and visitors with a vintage Ocean City license plate will be allowed to ride down the Boardwalk during the annual OC Vintage License Plate Rally, which will take place Saturday, Oct. 24. Continuing with the Drive in Disguise theme started last year, and anyone wishing to decorate their car will also be allowed to ride down the Boardwalk. “The rally has grown to include marching bands and walking units,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “The Halloween theme has really broadened the event. There’s a real competition in decorating the cars.” Decorated cars will join the OC vintage plate cars during the rally, which will start at 27th Street at 3 p.m. Vehicles will drive off the Boardwalk at the Inlet parking lot. The public will be able to vote for their favorite decorated car. Each vote costs one dollar. A People’s Choice trophy as well as additional trophies will be awarded. A group photo will be taken of all vehicles and drivers. In addition, various local organizations will

have information booths set up and a deejay will play music. Several local businesses will offer a 15 percent discount to participants for the weekend. “We’ve added bicycles to the event this year,” said event organizer Nancy Howard. “Bicycles were suggested and we thought why not — the more the merrier. Of course the bicycles need to be decorated and participants need to register. And we’ve added a category for best decorated bicycle and rider.” There is a $25 fee for non-vintage license plate participants and those vehicles and bicycles must be decorated. There is no fee for those with an Ocean City ‘vintage’ license plate (these are not vintage car tags but the special Ocean City plate). Proof of insurance is required for all participants. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Ocean City Downtown Association. Registration forms are available at www.downtownassociation.net. For more information, contact Howard at 443-235-4405 or e-mail neffiehoward@comcast.net. To obtain a city vintage plate, visit www.oceancitymd.gov.

Continued from Page 77 Paul Leville, John Losonczy, Kevin Fitzgerald and Scott Yeager. Wilson explores the natural beauty of her environment through her travels in this country and abroad. With a strong emphasis on light, her landscapes clearly reflect the seasonal changes. Many of her plein air works are later recreated into larger pieces in her studio. Wilson’s work has won several awards and has been shown at Salisbury University Atrium Gallery, Water’s Edge, A Step Above Gallery, Art League of Ocean City, Art Institute and Gallery, The Dorchester Arts Center and in private collections in several states. Mary Murphy has always tried to create beauty in her surroundings. She began her art career by studying at The University of Maryland College Park and has studied with Cassandra James, a former instructor at the Ringling School of Art and Design, and has studied with her in various locales in Texas, Montana, Mexico and North Carolina. Murphy has also studied with artists Linda Pflug, Losonczy, Yeager and Fitzgerald. She has developed her landscape art through plein air paintouts and her paintings capture the spirit of the locale. Her works can be

seen in several galleries in Maryland as well as in private collections. Betty Latourney decided upon retirement that she was going to add the title of artist to her accomplishments. Although she has painted with watercolor, oil is her preferred medium. She started her studies with Losonczy, and has enjoyed many classes and workshops since. Some of her class instructors were John Slater, Willy Schlossbach, Wallace McGarry and Katie Cassidy. Some of her instructors in the workshops included Mary Ekroos, Fitzgerald, Yeager and Leville. Her art has been featured in Mallard Landing Arts Alive, Salisbury University Atrium Gallery, Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum of Snow Hill, Art Institute & Gallery, Art League of Ocean City, the Ocean City library, Dorchester Arts Center, A Step Above, Water’s Edge and The Globe. In addition to the Ocean Pines library, she currently has paintings in the Keepsake Gallery in Salisbury, the Ocean City convention center, and Kellie’s Hair Place of Hebron, Md. She has participating in plein air events in Ocean City, Cambridge and Snow Hill. Her award-winning paintings and photographs are exhibited in many private collections and galleries.

Bank of Ocean City donates $50K to edu. foundation

(Oct. 9, 2015) The Bank of Ocean City is the most recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Champions of Educationâ&#x20AC;? with a $50,000 donation to the Worcester County Education Foundation. With BOCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation, the WCEF is $50,000 closer to meeting its initial and lofty $1 million goal. The Bank of Ocean City, a community-based bank was anxious to join the WCEFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission, which is to assure equal access to a World Class Education for every Worcester County student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bank of Ocean City has supported the community in many ways. We pride ourselves in recognizing a good, sound investment. Education one of the greatest investments a community can make,â&#x20AC;? said BOC President Reid Tingle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By investing in great education, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making an investment in our future. The kids we educate today are the future of this town. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be running this bank or leading our local government or teaching our grandchildren. We were also attracted to the Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on providing equal access to an excellent education, for every child in Worcester County.â&#x20AC;? The WCEF was formed by a group of concerned parents and business leaders who believe that in order for Worcester County students to graduate fully prepared to function in the new digital college environment or to compete for the jobs of tomorrow, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we must provide the necessary learning tools, today.â&#x20AC;? The 501(c) 3 Foundation goals include soliciting private funds that can be used to offset budgetary gaps during lean economic times. In addition, funds will be used to accelerate the purchase and distribution of appropriate digital devices so that every student in Worcester County K-12 will have equal access to a World Class Education. Funding will also be used for financial assistance for students who are less fortunate and finally, teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grants will be available on an annual basis, for the purchase of innovative programs and teaching tools. The WCEF will also fund an endowment that will grow and become a perpetual funding source for future needs of Worcester County students and teachers. The Worcester County Education Foundation is currently looking for opportunities to speak to businesses, corporations, private organizations, charitable organizations or any group wishing to learn more about how to become a Champion of Education, supporting Worcester County students and teachers. Visit www.wced.foundation or call 410-632-5076 for more information or ways to give.

The goal at Ocean City Elementary School is to directly teach students the strategies they need to demonstrate positive leadership as bystanders–to stand up and speak up to bullies. During the Sept. 18 Stand Up, Speak Up assembly, fourth grade students presented a skit teaching strategies for dealing with bullying situations.

Hastings couple present $10K to edu. foundation Ocean City residents avid supporters of local schools

(Oct. 9, 2015) Don and Pam Hastings, former owners of Donald’s Duck Shoppe in the Gold Coast Mall on 115th Street, recently presented the Worcester County Education Foundation a $10,000 check toward the Foundation’s $1 million goal. Residents of Ocean City since 1969, the Hastings’s generosity in the community has been consistent and abundant for decades. Pam Hastings donated thousands of hours of her time, volunteering every Sunday for 40 years at the Ocean City Animal Shelter. She retired from her shelter volunteer work in 2012. Don Hastings also spent years of service in leadership roles and fundraising for youth and education, as a member of the Ocean City/Berlin Optimist Club. As avid supporters of the Worcester County Public School system, the Hastings were pleased to contribute to the newly formed Worcester County Education Foundation. “We’ve supported the county schools every year and we’re very proud of the quality of education our kids are receiving. We know our contributions have played a small part in maintaining quality teachers and earning recognition as National Blue Ribbon schools,” Don Hastings said. “Worcester County schools have been fortunate to have pro-active, forward thinking leadership through past Superintendent, Dr. Jon Andes and today’s leader, Dr. Jerry Wilson. Both superintendents are also smart enough to know, it takes a community to maintain great schools. Funding gaps either mean kids go without and our schools fall behind or the community steps up to help.” The Worcester County Education Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 was established in August 2013 in order to provide a perpetual funding resource that can be used to fill periodic budgetary gaps, assuring that every student has equal access to a world class education, enabling them to function in today’s digital college environment and to compete in a new, emerging jobs market. “The first focus of the WCEF is to assist our county schools with digital conversion, by accelerating the purchase and distribution of digital learning devices so that every child K-12 has equal access to a World Class Education,” said WCEF Board Member Lisa Challenger. The Foundation is asking community organizations, businesses, offices and individuals to step up and champion education over the next five years, to help raise $5 million. All proceeds will go directly to support the digital conversion of schools, to offer financial assistance See WCEF Page 90

For anyone who loves their community, there is no better investment in its future than providing equal access to the best education possible,” Don Hastings said. “It’s a different world today than when I entered the workforce. These kids need the tools now, in order to be prepared on graduation day, to succeed in the new ‘paperless’ world of college and then return to our community with the skills to lead our community. We’re actually investing in our own future.”

Novel set in OC named finalist for Golden Leaf Award

(Oct. 9, 2015) The romantic suspense novel “Meant to Be” (June 2015) by Jessica James has been named a finalist in the Golden Leaf Book Award contest, sponsored by the New Jersey Romance Writers. Winners will be announced at the organization’s annual conference in October. Combining suspense, patriotism and romance, “Meant to Be” tells the tale of two people who meet by chance on the beach in Ocean City, Md. and find their lives intertwined in a way neither one imagined. One active duty military member described it as, “American Sniper but intertwined with an unforgettable, epic love story,” while Publishers Weekly, the industry’s leading trade journal, called it “an endearing page turner,” and “sweetly sentimental and moving.” James is the author of four awardwinning historical fiction novels and is the only two-time winner of the prestigious John Esten Cooke Award

for Southern Fiction. Her books have hit the No. 1 bestseller list on Amazon in a variety of categories including Military Romance and Christian Historical Fiction, and can be found in more than 100 libraries including Harvard and the U.S. Naval Academy.

Wine and Beer Festival at Ocean Downs this weekend Third annual Double Down event to feature Tall Tales, Fin City brewing companies

By Josh Davis Staff Writer (Oct. 9, 2015) The third annual Double Down Wine and Beer Festival will return to the Casino at Ocean Downs, Oct. 9-11. Local companies Fin City Brewing Co. and Tall Tales Brewing Company will pour samples, while regional, national and international wines will also be available through distributor Reliable Churchill. “We felt that our customers would really like to sample some good wine and taste some good beer, so we just thought we’d throw this on the schedule and invite the entire public,” organizer Crystal Layton said. The event will run from 2-7 p.m. throughout the weekend, with live entertainment scheduled from nearly beginning to end, Layton said. Bruder Hill and Sisters, both from Berlin, will have vendor tables. Held outside under a tent, the event is the last large-scale happening of the year for the casino, Layton said. “We try to bring new people in the fold and let them take a look at the

casino, plus taste some really good wine, eat some cheese, some fruit, some bread and crackers and, of course, we also get our locals that come in,” she said. “We advertise it to everybody.” Proceeds will go to the shelter Diakonia, where Layton is also the director of marketing. “I’ve been working with Diakonia for many years and when I started at the casino I told them how Diakonia really needed help,” she said. “This company is really all about the community, and we try to get involved as much as possible. They were on board that it was a good nonprofit to be working with.” Layton said the casino also does a canned food drive for Diakonia each Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas. Tickets for the Double Down Wine and Beer Festival are $30 at the door. “We want everybody to feel like [Double Down] is a great deal because it’s $30 to get in, and then we give them back $20 in free play,” Layton said. “They get to sample some really good wine, eat some cheese and get to look at some of our local vendor’s goods.” The Casino at Ocean Downs is located at 10218 Racetrack Road in Berlin. For more information, call 410-641-0600.

Commentary

Continued effort needed for H2Oi

Being stupid and ignorant is not against the law, and that is why, as good a job as the Ocean City Police and Maryland State Police did during H2Oi weekend, law enforcement will never be able to do enough by themselves. The police did do quite a bit, managing to reduce the vehicular rowdiness and the sidewalk rabble-rousing to below last year’s level. No doubt about it, were it not for them, Ocean City would have become unsafe, undrivable and generally out of control. In this respect, the strategies employed by law enforcement personnel were direct and aggressive. They identified potential problems and dealt with them immediately, rather than waiting to respond after an incident took place. Even so, it still wasn’t enough and it wasn’t their fault. Consider that the two police forces combined issued more than 1,000 citations and warnings and made more than 800 traffic stops, a majority of which occurred during weather seemingly not conducive to crazy driving. Imagine how it might have been in good weather, and reasonable people can see the potential for real trouble exists. The reasons are simple: it’s impossible for police to keep an eye on everyone because the car crowd greatly outnumbers them. In addition, it’s doubtful that traffic citations mean much to a person who is trying to gain notoriety online by inviting others to follow his or her escapades on Twitter and other social media. Just to be clear, neither is the actual H2Oi event at fault, because most of those stopped by police were hangers-on who use that event as an excuse to come to Ocean City and break bad. It’s the gawkers, screamers and unaffiliated bad drivers that Ocean City needs to worry about, and unless word gets out that enforcement will be even stricter next year, the resort will inch closer to an intolerable situation. The time to begin thinking about calling in more police for next year is now, as the beginning of the city’s budget process is not that far away. A heightened police presence and broader enforcement may be the only way to make this crowd go away by giving the audience that eggs them on less to see.

Letters to the editor Rezoning a losing deal for tourism

Editor, During a recent Ocean City Council meeting, Councilmember Mary Knight said that the council was “still going to continue to discuss the R-1A solution” for using the zoning laws to limit shortterm rentals in Mallard Island. You have to give the councilmembers credit for responding to the complaints of the Mallard Island residents. Class-consciousness and the political power of the elite expose its ugly head in the effort to eliminate weekly rentals in the Mallard Island. A review of property records for Teal Drive on Mallard Island, the street where the complainer lives with their affluent houses, finds that there are 57 properties listed. (In the interest of full disclosure, the editor of this paper is a Mallard Island property owner.) Of those 57 properties only 32 are designated as principal residence of the owners, meaning that the owners can legally vote in the Ocean City elections. These 32 owners represent about sixth tenths of one percent of the 5267 person registered vote in Ocean City. But one of these 32 owners is Councilmember Mary Knight, who is participating in the dis-

cussion even though that, since she lives in the Mallard Island community, she is in a possible conflict of interest position. The R-1A solution will not be limited to Mallard Island. If the zoning classification for Mallard Island is changed to prohibit short-term rentals, I believe residents who live in Little Salisbury, Caine Keys II, Montego Bay and Caine Woods will request the same zoning designation to prohibit for short-term rentals in their communities. Anyone who understands basic supply and demand knows that when you reduce the supply, that is remove properties from the renal market, and the demand stays the same, people will be charged a higher price for a rental. As a result, Ocean City hotels will be able to raise their room rates. Since the Ocean City taxes the money paid to the hotels, rooms tax revenue will also go up. So the change in the zoning designation makes the property owners in effected community winners because short-term rentals are prohibited, makes the hotel owners’ winners because their revenue will go up, and makes Ocean City winners because they will get more revenue from the room taxes. The only losers in this

whole issue will be the tourists, who will have to pay the higher hotel rates. You have to give the City Council credit for knowing how to squeeze every last dollar our of the tourist wallet while protecting the vested interest of their financial benefactors. Veronica Potter Ocean City

Island deserves protection

Editor, I am in favor of the DNR using the island in the Isle of Wright Bay for wildlife. I have witnessed for years people using our beaches as their own personal trashcan and how this affects our environment. I have picked up trash left by these families on Assateague Island and on the beach in Ocean City. They have at times stacked it very neatly as if that made it right to leave their trash. The dunes on the north side are being ruined by people, using it as a sliding board, and the “no dogs allowed” sign is ignored by many. I have also been to the island in question and have seen the same kind of disregard. Ocean City has a very large beach, as does Assateague, for families to go and bond, so I Continued on Page 98

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Continued from Page 97 find it amusing when people want that particular island to bond with their kids. Half the time the parents are on cell phones and the kids are going their own thing, which is on the cell. Parents are reading, napping, drinking and the kids are on their own. They don’t need that 50-cent piece of island for that. Read to your child at home, ride a bike, take a walk, go to the park or head to the beach, but talk to your kids and actually listen. All too often all you see are the adults on their cell phones while the child walks or bikes with them. Our wildlife is endangered. Trash alone kills a significant amount, so let the birds have their small space of sand if it helps. At least they take their trash with them. Gayl Miskoan Pasadena, Md.

Planned Parenthood protest planned

Editor, Which is more socially acceptable? Participating in a protest? (Most folks say “never!”) Or ignoring inhumane practices? (Probably no one wants to admit to this.) Yet, if everyone is ashamed of something, then how can it be socially acceptable? Quite a dichotomous quandary, eh? On Aug. 22, while millions of people nationwide were enjoying the sunshine an estimated 78,000 others were

peacefully and prayerfully protesting two things, namely: Planned Parenthood’s killing babies to sell their body parts and the federal government’s paying them to do it with our tax dollars. At the Easton Planned Parenthood office, over 128 of us, from Ocean City to Centerville, also peacefully and prayerfully protested. The significance of this officially documented, widely investigated and solidly-verified issue is tantamount to America’s character as a nation and to all of its citizens’ first inalienable rights — to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I pray that everyone reading this, and even many more, will join us at the next nationwide peaceful and prayerful protest on Saturday, Oct. 10, either in Easton or whatever other location you are near to on that day. For more information, please contact: http://protestpp.com/locations, Easton@protestpp.com or me at noel55@comcast.net or 410-430-0535. Quoting Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Until then, please contact your U.S. legislators, in Maryland: Senators Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin, and Congressman Andy Harris and tell them to defund Planned Parenthood, redirecting any ‘women’s health’ appropriations to fully legitimate women’s health centers. Thank you. Ellie Diegelmann Ocean City

Hope for bad food

So now, according to the federal government, drinking whole milk is better for you than gulping that low fat or fat-free chalk water that everyone has been downing for decades, after the federal directors of dietary dictums declared way back in 1977 that you might as well drive a stake through your heart as consume dairy fat. I know that was a long sentence, but just imagine how long it would have been if the federal government had written it, and that may be the real problem. My guess is that our national nutritionists didn’t change their minds, but that it took them 38 years to get through the official report on milk only to discover, “Whoops, we didn’t mean to say that.” As it is, I don’t care one way or the other about the good/bad of milk because I never drink it. I have nothing against it, aside from the thin stuff looking like the barium cocktail you’d consume before getting a CT scan of your innards and sub-innards, but I don’t believe it would mix well with anything I do like to drink. I have heard of people drinking scotch whiskey and milk, the thought of which makes me want to make like a sailboat and heave to. As for other liquor combinations, it wouldn’t sound manly to walk up, bang your fist on the bar, and say, “Give me a

shot of Old Stumphole … with a refreshing glass of Borden’s on the side.” The real upside of this rediscovery of food that isn’t bad for you is there’s hope for many of the By other things I Stewart must consume on the sly or pay Dobson the price. “Vienna sausages? Drop down and give me 50 pushups.” I am looking forward to the day, for instance, when the New England Journal of Medicine proclaims, “Study Proves Health Benefits of Velveeta.” Or, “World Stunned: Squeeze Cheese Prevents Heart Attacks.” The more scientists look into these things, the more likely it is that many of my low cuisine choices will be vindicated: “Doctors Advocate Slim Jim Diet!” “Dorito Your Way to A Better Brain!” “Twinkie, Twinkie, New Health Star!” I’m confident that in time the truth about what we should be eating will come out, and that the day will come when we’ll all be saying “good gravy.”
