Welcome to the X zone - hold on to your insurance FEMA pulls back flooding risk further than expected

“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call ... The Twilight Zone.” – from Rod Serling’s “Twilight Zone” MAKING STRIDES

Approximately 800 walkers hit the Boardwalk last Saturday for Ocean City’s third annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K event. Additionally, about 180 runners took off from the starting line for the 5K race in the inlet parking lot shortly before the walk began.

In keeping with the common horror B-movie trope of “be careful what you wish for,” it appears that the city’s desire to have its federal flood risk reduced has actually swung the proverbial pendulum of liability too far into the other corner. Some resort leaders have said the expectation of a massive ease-up in flood requirements could put the city in extreme danger. “I’m more than grateful that they moved the ‘V’ zone out onto the beach, but to give people the option not to buy [insurance] just doesn’t make sense to me,” said Igor Conev of Mann Properties.

Swaths of oceanfront properties now out of federal hazard zone industry leaders had lobbied the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to re-classify the town’s oceanfront properties into a less intense flood risk zone, to account for the resort’s highly successful dune system. The expectation was that this would reduce those properties’ rates under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). But what was not anticipated was that FEMA would go so far as to completely eliminate the flood hazard zone for vast swaths of the resort, giving property owners the option to go uninsured. Under the current revision of flood maps, the agency appears to have done just that. While not having to pay premiums will have a face-value benefit to the taxpayers, the tax base as a whole could suffer a major blow if the city was left to look after derelict properties itself, without federal insurance assistance, following a catastrophic storm. “It looks to me like it’s great for the consumer, but scary for our city as a business,” said Reese Cropper, a broker with Insurance Management Group. Cropper had also pushed to get lower rates for his clients, but now fears many will drop out of the pro-

gram all together. Since the inception of the NFIP in 1968, FEMA has been authorized to provide insurance policies with premiums based on Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), which indicate what areas have greater danger of high water and should thus pay larger premiums for their insurance. The FIRMs also allow FEMA to designate Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), in which flood insurance purchase is mandatory. In recent years, however, the NFIP has experienced considerable financial difficulties, with payouts – especially after Hurricane Katrina – far exceeding the premiums collected. Part of the program’s re-authorization last year was a comprehensive re-mapping of all risk areas, as well as across-theboard rate hikes. Prior to the current re-mapping, most of the resort’s oceanfront was in a “V” zone, an area subject to the highest insurance rates given the risk of both static flooding as well as impact from waves and debris. What the city was expecting in the re-mapping was that those areas, given the dune buffer, would be re-classified as “A” zones, which are assigned a high water mark or ‘base flood elevation’ but not subject to additional damage Page from1 impact.

However, much of the resort has now been labeled an “X” zone, meaning one that is outside of the 100-year floodplain and thus has no base flood elevation or insurance mandate. “The thing I don’t understand – and I agree completely that the dune is a wonderful mitigation and the ‘V’ zone should change – is how you can go from a ‘V’ zone right to an ‘X’ zone,” Cropper said. “Most of Ocean City in the past has been an ‘A’ zone, which makes sense. You have some flooding but it’s not intense and the rates are fair,” he said. “But to take it completely out [of the SFHA] as though we have no flooding at all, just doesn’t make sense when you’re on a barrier island.” Still, private lenders may themselves require flood insurance as a condition for financing. But those without real estate debt will be able to go it alone. “That’s like saying that if you don’t have a lender behind you, you should just stop buying fire insurance,” Cropper said. “I don’t think that’s a smart thing to do.” In many cases, it is feared, the city will be getting the boot from the NFIP under FEMA’s expectation that most of the resort’s properties will not get insurance if they aren’t required to. “If you’re an independent business,

and as part of your business model you don’t’ want to be insured, I can see that,” Conev said. “But when you’re dealing with condo boards, the implications are a little bigger.” Conev noted that the State of Maryland changed its own regulations regarding condo insurance four years ago, so that condos with 20 units or less would not have to purchase property insurance. As such, many of Conev’s client properties dropped their policies, even though he warned against doing so. “If you make it an option, they won’t do it,” he said. Further, the change leaves the city as somewhat of a crossroads as to what it will be doing with its own flood measures. These measures garner city property owners a discount on their insurance from FEMA, and would thus also become fiscally – but not necessarily practically – a moot point. Specifically, the city requires the first floor of all new buildings to be raised to base flood elevation, plus a certain level of extra space or “freeboard.” Currently, the town measures maximum building height from starting at the grade of the adjacent road. However, even before the new maps were revealed, the city was already planning to change this measurement See CITY on Page 4A

Hurricane activity squashed by ‘sinking’ air patterns Air across the tropical Atlantic Ocean has been exceptionally dry this hurricane season. Combined with sinking air — called subsidence — that tends to quash storm activity that helps form hurricanes, this pattern has helped offset other weather that helps build hurricanes, such as warm sea surface temperatures and strong westbound African winds, Feltgen said. “In other words, there were plenty of positive factors for above average activity,” he said. “What was not anticipated was all the sinking motion and resulting dryness — factors that occasionally disrupt what would otherwise be an active season, but which are impossible to predict.” While the below-normal activity is welcomed, it is not usual, the meteorologist said.

City trying to keep own standards after feds drop elevation to starting at the base flood elevation, in order to remove the de-facto reduction of usable vertical space imposed on properties in higher flood elevations. But with the revelation that the “X” zones in the new maps may not have a base flood elevation, the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a further change, stating that height be measured from base flood elevation or two feet above the crown of the road, whichever is higher. This essentially builds in a minimum flood elevation of two feet, even in the “X” zones, as far as the city is concerned. “Our codes are still going to provide a buffer to what it looks like the federal government will take away,” said city Planning Director Matt Margotta However, Cropper said he was confused as to why the city would go along with the new FEMA maps, but still impose its own tighter codes. “If people are not going to be flooded, per these new determinations, why are you still going to make them spend more money on an elevated foundation that they don’t need?” he asked.

City to move web ads forward despite objection from constituents Controversial proposal that riled HMRA will be discussed by full council ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) The city appears poised to continue forward with a proposal to add advertising to ococean.com – the resort’s municipally sponsored tourism website – despite the increasingly adversarial relationship it stands to create with local industry groups. Council Secretary and Tourism Commission Chair Mary Knight said in her report this week that the entire council should weigh in on the possibility, “even though the HMRA [the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association] and their board is not really in favor.” “We’ve discussed it now for about three meetings [of the Tourism Commission], and I think it’s important that, even though one of the boards is not in favor, that the council has a discussion,” Knight said. The idea to change the setup of ococean.com has been one of the more contentious topics in the commission, since it was suggested by

business owners some months ago ently still pursuing. “Our board was of the unanimous who said they would appreciate the ability to purchase advertising and opinion that the website should be a more prominent listings on the page. service to the businesses, and should Currently, a $200 membership to clearly and equally represent all busithe town’s Convention and Visitors’ nesses,” said HMRA Executive DirecBureau gets hospitality businesses a tor Susan Jones. “It shouldn’t be favoring one listing on ocobusiness over the cean.com’s cateother through g o r i z e d , advertising.” searchable index.

not be competing with our businesses.” Under a proposal the commission requested from MGH Advertising – the marketing agency which maintains the city’s site – the town could likely put a single banner ad on the home page of ococean.com and four blocks of advertising on the interior pages. Rates for the spaces would depend on how many ads were being rotated through a single space, but would average roughly $10 per 1,000 viewer impressions. If a single buyer were to take the whole home page in a sponsorship arrangement, the city could likely charge up to $20,000 for the deal. The interior pages would net an estimated $74,000, with some fluctuation depending on if there was a single buyer or multiple. However, Jones said that those prices would not necessarily be out of reach of the city’s larger hotels. At least one has said they could afford to buy up the site, but would not do so out of principle. “I just think it would be responsible for us to have a further discussion,” Knight said, given the volume of concern over the proposal. “They [MGH] have presented ways we can do it, if the council so desires.”

Fire guts ground level store at Majestic, but hotel itself saved Historic building sustains smoke damage after blaze contained to first floor ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Ocean City Fire Department personnel remove the plywood covering the windows of the Majestic Hotel, which was closed for the winter when a fire broke out last Friday.

(Oct. 25, 2013) An intense fire last Friday afternoon threatened one of downtown Ocean City’s landmark hotels, but was able to be contained to the ground floor where it originated. The Ocean City Fire Department, along with backup from the Berlin, Ocean Pines, and Bethany Beach departments, responded to the Majestic Hotel at Seventh Street and the Boardwalk around 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct, 18. The Majestic had been boarded up for the winter months, but plumes of smoke were seen emanating from the first floor of the structure. The fire appeared to have started in the northeast corner of the building’s ground level, which sits below the elevation of the Boardwalk and contains a convenience store. Although the flames were quickly brought under control, the store was gutted. “It’s a 100 percent loss. There’s ab-

solutely nothing left in the store,” said Will Savage, who owns the shop along with his wife. Savage also manages the hotel itself on behalf of his parents, the building’s long-time owners. Fortunately, responders were able to contain the space in which it apparently started. But thick smoke spread throughout the rest of the building, causing further damage. A second store – a sunglass shop also owned by Savage – had all of its merchandise ruined. “Even though the store itself appeared to have minimal damage, that one is going to be a total loss, too,” he said. “Sunglasses manufacturers are very protective of their brands. They don’t allow discounting, and they’ll certainly not allow me to move a product that has smoke damage.” For several hours after the ground level fire had been cleared, personnel were still using tower trucks to un-board the hotel’s upper floors for ventilation. Savage is currently working on if, and how, the hotel will replace furnishings and mattresses inundated with smoke. “That’s going to be an ongoing issue with the insurance company,” he said. However, the Majestic’s structure appears to be intact due to the hotel’s historic construction.

A firefighter pries damaged siding off the north side of the Majestic Hotel’s first floor to search for any burning remnants.

Savage plans to have both shops, lodging repaired by ‘14 season “These buildings were built back in the day to be washed out, before the seawall was there,” Savage said. None of the internal walls on the first floor are loadbearing, having been built with the expectation that they would give way during a storm surge. “The drop ceiling and the drywall were incinerated, but as long as the fire doesn’t get a good hold, which it didn’t thanks to the response from the fire department, the basic structure is pretty bullet-proof,” Savage said. Incidentally, Savage himself is an Assistant Chief with the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company, although he was out of town at the time of the fire.

“I was really shocked, and really impressed, that the department was able to contain the fire to the unit of origin,” he said. Savage said he plans to have all three establishments – the hotel, as well as both stores – rebuilt and operating as normal by the summer of 2014. Only one person, a maintenance worker, was believed to be on site at the time, according to a release from the town. One fire cadet suffered minor injuries during the operation and was treated at the scene. The Ocean City Fire Marshal is investigating the incident and has not yet determined the cause of the fire.

Shutdown over, Assateague struggles to get back up to speed Surfers, fishermen, 500 students denied access during federal debacle CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) Assateague National Seashore reopened its gates last Thursday morning, Oct. 17, marking the end of the U.S. government shutdown that closed it on the first of the month. By 6:15 a.m., the first visitor returned to the beach for a routine walk, signaling a return to normalcy for the national seashore, Public Information Officer Rachelle Daigneault said. But while surfers rushed for the waves and day-trippers got an early start on their

It takes time to get things back on track,” Daigneault said. “We’re still playing catch-up. We’re still going through our emails. We’re still answering phone calls.” The national seashore kept only 10 of about 90 employees on during the shutdown — five law enforcement officers, four maintenance workers and one part-time employee who maintained the aquarium at the visitors’ center, Daigneault said. As a result, regular maintenance stopped, campsites closed, assistance halted and scheduled programs were put on hold. School groups were particularly hit

Commissioners will hear volunteers’ case on water line expense County wary of setting precedent for future non-profit development ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) Ocean City’s Volunteer Fire Company will likely have another shot at recouping its costs from the county for water line installation along Keyser Point Road, County Commissioners President Bud Church said this week. If the move is made, it will likely have ramifications throughout the county, and fear of setting a precedent continues to be the main reason why the fire company’s request could continue to be stonewalled. “I’m going to discuss it with the commissioners again, and see if they are inclined to have [the OCVFC] come in and meet directly, or possibly fund all or part of the request,” Church said. The move comes a week after the OCVFC penned an open letter, published in this newspaper and others, lamenting what it said was a lack of engagement from the county over an issue that the volunteer company views as one of fundamental fairness. The dispute arises from the OCVFC’s construction of Station 5, the fire outpost

The OCVFC, however, is not a developer who is trying to make money off the improvement of Keyser Point Road, but rather a public service and a quasi-governmental organization in itself. “We’ve paid on something that we’ll never be able to recoup our money on,” said OCVFC President Cliff Christello. “If you’re a contractor and putting all that infrastructure in, you’re doing it knowing that there will be more building opportunities later because people now have domestic water.” As such, the OCVFC had been operating under the assumption that it will be reimbursed for the $60,000 of what it sees as excess infrastructure. But attempts to convince the county of this have gone nowhere, leading the volunteer company to take the argument public.

As part of the construction, the OCVFC extended the county’s public water line to the station at a cost of $192,000, according to the fire company. The group was willing to pay this cost to have domestic water access at the new facility. However, under the county’s development statutes, the OCVFC was also required to install almost $60,000 worth of tees, hydrants, and valves along the new line so that it could be tapped into by future development projects along Keyser Point Road. Requiring builders to install this infrastructure is standard practice in many jurisdictions, as opposed to the taxpayers directly footing the bill to create infrastructure that may or may not attract

Hearing on porch enclosures postponed due to emergency NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners postponed their scheduled hearing last Tuesday about porch enclosures due to a family emergency. Commissioners President Bud Church called for a five-minute recess before the scheduled 11 a.m. hearing about allowing soft plastic porch enclosures in cooperative campgrounds. When the meeting recommenced, he said a family emergency had occurred and the hearing should be postponed. Commissioner James Purnell did not say what had occurred, but did say, “This emergency is very close to me.” He also said he would like to be at the public hearing. Church said it was “only fair to honor the request” of Commissioner Purnell

and postpone the hearing. Attorney Mark Cropper, who represents several part-time residents of Bali Hi, the cooperative campground off St. Martin’s Neck Road, was amenable to the postponement. Cropper’s clients are seeking approval of an amendment to the county code that would permit soft plastic porch enclosures. The code permits only insect screening. The county commissioners have been concerned, during past discussions, that those other materials could lead to people using their porches as additions to their campers, recreational vehicles or trailers and making their campground units a step closer to permanent residences, which the county does not permit in cooperative campgrounds. The public hearing will be advertised for Nov. 19.

Fire service should be exempt from policy, OC company says structure break, the same argument could be made by all of Worcester’s other fire companies for any development they may do, as well as by other non-profit groups who provide a public service. “If we do it for the Ocean City fire company, then we have to do it for the Pocomoke company, the Newark company…it was a precedent they didn’t want to set,” Church said. While he understood his colleagues’ argument against the move, Church said he personally was more amenable to the OCVFC’s desire, especially since his electoral district encompasses West Ocean City. “I have an awful lot of sympathy for the fire company, because of who they are and the service they provide, but I’m just one vote,” he said. “That’s the impression I got, that the

rest of the commissioners weren’t going to support it because of the precedent,” Christello said. “But they shouldn’t feel that way. What we’re saying is that the extra stuff the county requires us to put in is not appropriate, and we feel it wouldn’t be appropriate for another fire department to have to pay for it either.” The argument is also somewhat of a shell game, Christello noted, since the county already provides grant money to the volunteer company for its service. If the company were to recoup the $60,000 it desires, that money would go toward the same. “It’s not like we’re putting it in a coffer and collecting interest on it,” Christello said. “That’s money that will be used for further improvements on Station 5, which improves fire service in West Ocean City.”

Ramadan told NYPD undercover that he had ‘one of those problems’ ating with law enforcement in the case against them. In the original case, Ramadan and 14 other alleged members of a criminal ring flooding New York City and the Albany region with more than a million cartons of untaxed cigarettes illegally imported from Virginia. The indictment unsealed Oct. 17 in Brooklyn Supreme Court charges them with conspiracy in the second degree and criminal solicitation in the second degree. If convicted, they could be sentenced up to 25 years to life in prison for conspiring to kill witnesses. “These defendants sought to kill individuals they believed to be witnesses to their crimes,” New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman stated in

Continued from Page 12A

a press release. “This behavior is intolerable and we are going to prosecute them to the full extent of the law. These two individuals cheated New York taxpayers out of millions of dollars in tax revenue and then tried to cover up their dangerous and lucrative smuggling operations, which hurt New York businesses, by Basel Ramadan committing the ultimate crime.” New York Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly stated that the indictment showed the scope of intent of Ramadan and Odeh was not limited to making money from illegal cigarettes, but also includes a murder plot. “Fortunately, it was an NYPD detec-

tive and not an accomplice of these inmates on the other end of the phone,” Kelly stated. According to the indictment, Ramadan and Odeh, a.k.a. Abu Mahmoud, conspired, from on or about and between May 24 and Oct. 11, to have a murder committed. Their alleged goal was to kill several people whom they believed to be witnesses against them in the prosecution of the cigarette smuggling case. On or about Aug. 24, Ramadan allegedly gave someone information about the targets of the murder conspiracy, including the name and home address of one of them. He also allegedly provided a description and place of business of another intended victim. On or about that same day, Odeh allegedly provided someone with descriptive information about the intended targets. The telephone conversation mentioned by Kelly allegedly took place on or about Sept. 17, when Ramadan, a.k.a. Abu Salah, told the undercover detective, posing as a prospective killer for hire, that he had “one of those problems,” according to the indictment. The detective replied that he could “take care of it.” Ramadan then allegedly said he appreciated it and also allegedly said the man he thought was a prospective killer

might “need some help.” The indictment includes no statements allegedly made by Ramadan referencing a killing or a murder. The 244-count indictment filed in May charges Ramadan, his brother, Samer Ramadan, 40, ostensibly the enterprise treasurer, and 14 others with enterprise corruption, money laundering and related tax crimes. They each face up to 25 years in prison. After the original indictment, speculation arose that some of the illegally obtained proceeds made their way to known terrorist groups, but no evidence has been released to support that allegation. Some people who knew Basel Ramadan, but who requested anonymity, told Ocean City Today they did not believe any such connection existed. Ramadan, 42, has been held at Rikers Island without bail and Odeh, 52, had been held in lieu of $500,000 bail since their arraignment on the initial indictment in May. They were arrested and charged for their alleged roles in the cigarette trafficking and money laundering ring that operated from Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, up to New York City and points farther north. Ramadan and his brother were arrested during raids on their West Ocean City residences.

Mushrooms found in vehicle After stopping a vehicle Oct. 18 because the passenger was not wearing a seatbelt and because its registration sticker was not clearly visible, an Ocean City police officer gave the driver a warning and told him he was free to leave. The officer also asked the driver, Scott Michael Carroll, 26, of Phoenix, if any drugs or weapons were in the vehicle. Carroll said neither were in the vehicle and he gave permission to the officer to search. During the search, the officer found a bag of psilocybin mushrooms, according to the charging document. Carroll reportedly said he had paid $30 for the mushrooms a month earlier.

Dangerous weapon found A 29-year-old Berlin man was charged Oct. 15 with having a concealed dangerous weapon and having brass knuckles, a municipal offense in Ocean City. An Ocean City police officer stopped Adam Edward Roe at 25th Street because his vehicle had no registration tags. Roe said the tags were stolen the night before. A computer check revealed Roe’s driver’s license was revoked and he had two warrants for his arrest. The check also revealed the vehicle’s registration was cancelled July 31. As Roe exited his vehicle, the officer saw a fixed blade knife in his belt. Roe said he had it for protection. A search of Roe after his arrest reportedly revealed brass knuckles in his sweatshirt pocket. Because Roe’s vehicle was parked in a private lot, the officer had it impounded, but searched it before it was towed. During that search, the officer found a Mason jar containing marijuana, a grinder, a smoking device and two bongs used to smoke marijuana. The officer also found a second set of brass knuckles.

Alleged puppy theft in Pines The Ocean Pines Police Department charged a 29-year-old Pittsville man with theft of less than $1,000, theft of less than $100 and unauthorized removal of a puppy after an incident that happened in that community Oct. 7. Police served Brian Eric Mumford with a summons Oct. 16.

Police discover Clonazepam An Ocean City police officer stopped a vehicle Oct. 18 at 49th Street because its registration plate validation sticker had expired. A computer check revealed the registration had expired and that the driver’s license to drive was suspended in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Police charged the driver, Spencer Joseph Smolich, 35, of Centreville, with traffic violations. During a search after the arrest, police found one yellow pill that turned out to be Clonazepam and then charged him with possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

Crossing America for Sturge-Weber Syndrome Al DeCesaris completes 3,000-mile bike journey for his 9-year-old niece CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Nine-year-old Jenna Heck has a port-wine stain birthmark on one side of her face, a characteristic of the rare neurological and skin disorder Sturge-Weber Syndrome. Her family has been raising money for research and treatment of the disorder over the last eight years, and even though she’s shy, she said what her uncle’s been doing for the past 45 days was “pretty cool.� Al DeCesaris Jr. undertook a crosscountry bike trip to raise money for and awareness of SWS, ending at the Greene Turtle in Ocean City on Wednesday, Oct. 23 with a celebration among more than 50 family and friends. His trip, dubbed Crossing America for a Cure, raised around $25,000 for the Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, where Jenna is treated. That total is still growing, and being matched dollar-for-dollar by former Pittsburgh Steeler Alan Faneca, whose daughter Anabelle has SWS. “We wanted to do something outside the box,� said DeCesaris, who’s helped Jenna’s family raise more than $1 million for SWS research over her lifetime. “We wanted to create an event to spread awareness across the country.� That’s when the bike came in. A lawyer by trade, DeCesaris said most of his biking took place during childhood. But when a professional move from Washington, D.C., to California presented itself, it was the “perfect timing,� he said. “My bike became the vehicle to spread awareness,� he said. Throughout the 3,000-mile journey from Santa Monica, Calif., to Ocean City, he connected with people in many ways, from strangers who stopped to offer water to other parents of children with SWS. Through a Facebook group, he met Brittney and Phillip Hastings, of Millsboro, Del., who’s 22-month-old daughter Stella has SWS. The Hastings watched from the finish line in Ocean City. “It’s humbling,� Brittney Hastings said. DeCesaris chose to end his ride in Ocean City because of the family’s ties to the area, where they’ve spent summers for more than 30 years. It’s “just amazing that he did all this for my daughter,� said DeCesaris’ sister, Ida Heck. “It’s been overwhelming to her.� “It was amazing to have the opportunity to touch the lives of so many people,� DeCesaris said. “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but also

Casino at Ocean Downs expansion to include 10 table games NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Visitors to the Casino at Ocean Downs may tempt Lady Luck at table games after the facility is enlarged. The casino plans to construct a 35,000-square-foot addition plus a back-of-house mezzanine adjacent to the casino and racetrack. The Worcester County Planning Commission approved the expansion during its Sept. 12 meeting, but Joe

Cavilla, the casino’s general manager, had few details that day. He said an unspecified number of table games and some of the existing slot machines would go in the new area. More room was needed in the existing casino, he said, for customers to enjoy new interactive games with sound chairs. In a press release, Cavilla discusses the need for expansion. “We are expanding because we were limited to the former footprint of the grandstand to accommodate our original proposed slot casino,” Cavilla

stated. “The new building will allow us to spread out the existing operation. We will be adding a racing sports restaurant to include simulcast wagering with a view of the racetrack, a very large storage area, and larger back of the house operations.” That new viewing area for racing will be included in the addition if funding is approved by the State Racing Commission. Although the casino is permitted to have 850 slot machines, there are no plans to increase the number for the

present 800 machines. “We are committed to providing an operation that appeals to and excites our customers, enhances the attraction of the Ocean City-Berlin, Maryland resort area and provides stable revenue for our state and local stakeholders,” Cavilla stated. “This small expansion will allow friendlier and service-oriented enhancements and is in the work-in-process state of development.” No date was given for the completion of the construction work.

City will take bids for watersport rentals at Northside Park beach

Whaleyville, MDÂ 34+

OCTOBER 25, 2013

ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Ocean City Council gave the go-ahead this week on an initiative to solicit bids for a vendor to rent kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards at Northside Park beginning in the 2014 summer season. The town will be issuing a Request for Proposals to find a qualified vendor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and also the one who is willing to pay the highest fee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to enter into a concession agreement with the town, whereby the vendor would be able to operate a specified rental business on public property. The Parks and Recreation Commission had originally been approached by an established local rental business that was offering to establish a concession in the park outright, Councilman and Commission Chair Joe Mitrecic said. Although he found the idea to be a good one, the city cannot simply award a contract to the first person who asks, Mitrecic noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were actually contacted by a kayak and stand-up paddleboard business that wanted to just move in,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We said that was probably not the way to handle it, and it should go out to RFP and give everyone a chance to bid. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge, huge business.â&#x20AC;? Per the bid documents, the contract will be good for two years, lasting through the fall of 2015. The vendor will operate from May 1 through the first weekend in October of both 2014 and 2015. Hours of operation will be at the ven-

dorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discretion, with the stipulation that no vessels are launched prior to 7 a.m. and must be returned by dusk. The concession must also be closed by 3 p.m. on Sundays during the high season for the Sundaes in the Park concerts and fireworks. The vendor will be allotted storage racks and an office shed of no more than 120 square feet in the vicinity of the pier on the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west side. Rented vessels can be launched at the small â&#x20AC;&#x153;dog beachâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so named because dogs frequently go in the water there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the south of the pier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public will still be able to use the beach,â&#x20AC;? Mitrecic noted. The vendor will be required to hold a $1 million insurance policy, and exempt the town from any liability incurred by the operation. Hopes were high that the popularity of stand-up paddleboarding, in particular, would draw more visitors to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest public space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of eco-tourism, which is really big right now, and this allows us to expand on that,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Rick Meehan. Councilwoman Margaret Pillas asked if the city was at risk of stepping on anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toes by offering a town-sanctioned rental business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to weather very well with people who are already renting kayaks and paddleboards,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every company out there will have the same ability to bid as everyone else,â&#x20AC;? said Mitrecic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The town itself is not getting into the kayak business.â&#x20AC;?

Blue Flame third local business to get casino-funded VOLT loan NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) A company near Berlin that sells, installs and maintains gas fireplaces is the third recipient of a small business loan generated from proceeds from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casinos. Blue Flame owner Joe Mowbray will use the $75,000 loan to construct a 1,200square-foot gas fireplace showroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue Flame has been installing and repairing gas fireplaces since 2006,â&#x20AC;? said Worcester County Economic Development Director Bill Badger, who announced the award of the loan this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The business has been built from the ground up by Mr. Mowbray, and the showroom expansion exemplifies his desire to take customer service to the next level.â&#x20AC;? The check to Blue Flame represents the third Video Lottery Terminal (VOLT) Small Business Loan awarded by Worcester County Economic Development in partnership with the Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation, one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three designated fund manager.

Many Worcester County businesses could qualify for such a loan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality in Worcester County is most of the businesses may qualify based on the Maryland definition of a small business,â&#x20AC;? Badger said. To qualify for VOLT Small Business Loan funds, companies must employ fewer than 500 employees, and their annual revenues must average $35 million or less during a three-year period. The loan funds are available to small, minority, and woman-owned businesses in the county. VOLT Small Business Loan funds are generated from 1.5 percent of all Maryland casino yearly proceeds, as required by state law. Fifty percent of these funds must be used within a 10-mile radius of Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating casinos, including the Casino at Ocean Downs. Blue Flame is located on Grays Corner Road, west of Route 589 and parallel to Route 50. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first VOLT loan was awarded to The Kite Loft in Ocean City for expansion. The second was awarded to a new West Ocean City business, Plak That owned by Wyatt Harrison, who prints photographs on wood.

DNR seeks input on possible new ‘wildlands’ designations State has acquired new potential properties since last process 11 years ago NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Some state-owned land in Worcester County could be designated as wildlands by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, which will be seeking public input on Tuesday. The department is also seeking public input on the proposed creation of nine other new wildlands and the expansion of 17 existing wildlands. Wildlands are state-owned natural areas preserved for their wilderness character or sensitive natural resources. When land is designated as wild lands, the local economy benefits because the properties attract birdwatchers, photographers, backpackers and other who enjoy nature and the great outdoors. Rare and endangered species such as hellbenders and purple-fringed orchids make their homes in many wild lands. Wildlands are also places for people to enjoy hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and horseback riding. At the present time, 29 areas of stateowned land in 15 counties, totaling

43,779 acres, are designated as wild lands. The last designations were 11 years ago. Since then, the Department of Natural Resources has acquired new properties meeting the state Wildlands Preservation System criteria. Many of those new properties contain rare or threatened plans and animals. Each of the four Worcester properties proposed for the designation would expand areas also designated as wildlands. Two are part of an extensive bald cypress swamp associated with the Pocomoke River and two are part of an extensive bald cypress forest associated with the river. Together, they total 2,008 acres. In Somerset County, 3,210 acres of a salt marsh island, Janes Island, are proposed for a new wild land. The site is the habitat for the world’s largest population of Northeastern Beach tiger beetle. Information and maps showing the locations of the areas may be viewed online at dnr.maryland.gov/land/stewardship/wildland.asp. Detailed listings of the proposed areas grouped by county may be found at http://dnr.maryland.gov/land/stewardship/pdfs/wildland_candidate_areas.p df Nine public meetings will be held statewide on the proposed land designations and comments may be held on the See SOMERSET on Page 22A

No Ocean City victims so far in Ponzi scheme City residents or property owners have contacted the Northhampton County District Attorney’s Office, he said. Freer, 47, of Palmer Township, Pa., owned two condominiums on 26th Street in Ocean City and appears to have lease agreements for three others, was charged with 90 counts each of theft by deception and failure to make required disposition of funds, plus 50 counts of forgery and related crimes. He is being held in the county prison in lieu of $10 million bail. During a bail review, the judge ordered that no Ocean City residence he owns be sold until the case is resolved. At least one of the residences he had owned in Ocean City was foreclosed and is now owned by a bank. According to Northampton District Attorney John Morganelli, people invested money with Freer, but instead of

(Oct. 25, 2013) No Ocean City residents have come forward to say they might have been victims of a Ponzi scheme allegedly perpetrated by a Pennsylvania man who owned property here. In early October, a Pennsylvania detective said nearly all of the 82 known victims of Richard Allen Freer had lost their entire life savings. Since then, several other people from the Lehigh Valley area have come forward to declare that they might have been victims, but no Ocean

investing their money, Freer would use it to pay previous investors in a typical Ponzi scheme or deposit it into his own bank account. The Ponzi scheme came to light after one victim ran into trouble with the IRS because of the money she gave Freer to invest, according to published reports. That victim contacted an accountant, who contacted an attorney, who contacted the Northampton County District Attorney’s Office. Most of the phony investments, which total approximately $10 million, were in 2009 and they continued until this past summer. The case remains under investigation. Anyone who suspects they are one of Freer’s victims may call the Northampton County District Attorney’s Office at 610-559-3020.

Petition against performing arts borrowing gets OK from city Christ’s advocacy group will try to halt bond for convention center project ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) Launching off the success of the petition earlier this year against further paid parking, the local advocacy group Ocean City Taxpayers for Social Justice has been cleared to run a petition against the city’s plans to borrow $8.5 million for the construction of a performing arts facility at the convention center. OCTSJ’s de-facto headman, Tony Christ – a local landlord and frequent critic of the city’s fiscal policies – received approval from City Solicitor Guy Ayres this week for the final language of the petition, which will oppose part of the ordinance authorizing the city to issue debt at the end of this year. The approval came after several failed attempts by Christ, in which Ayres found the language of his proposed petition “insufficient to inform the voters” if the issue was, in fact, taken to referendum. The City Solicitor must verify any petition before signatures are gathered in order for the

document to be legally binding. In order to halt the bond sale, and have the matter go before the voters, the petition will have to garner 1,226 signatures, or 40 percent of the number of voters who participated in the last municipal election. Late Wednesday, after several revocations, Christ was able to secure with Ayres language that would allow the petition to oppose only the $8.5 million in dedicated borrowing for the performing arts project. Christ had previously submitted a petition against the entire $12.7 million bond authorization, but subsequently submitted a revision. Thus, contrary to previous reports, OCTSJ’s petition will not impact the $4.2 million in remaining borrowing assigned to other projects. “We’re opposed in principle to the borrowing, but not to the rest of the projects,” Christ said. “The borrowing for the convention center, however, is the biggest chunk of the bond and the most onerous.” The center will consist of a 1,200seat, two-story theater capable of hosting full-scale dramatic presentations and concerts. Preliminary work was slated to begin this week. The project was secured as part of a renewal of the city’s partnership with the Maryland Stadium Authority in

operating the convention center. The state will be footing another $5.7 million for the construction. One of the key arguments against OCTSJ’s position is that the project has a dedicated source of funding. The state authorizes a half-percent food tax on the city’s behalf, which can be used only for capital improvements on the convention center. The town takes in about $1.2 million in food tax per year, the exact amount it needs to cover debt repayment on the project. However, Christ has pointed out,

food tax revenue was down eight percent for August. If the city does not have enough in food tax to pay the debt service, it will default to using its general fund revenues, which consist mainly of property taxes. However, the city’s annual food tax totals have been steady for several years. “I appreciate Tony’s concern, but to hear him tell it, the sky is falling in,” said Peck Miller, a local developer and member of the city’s Cultural Arts AdSee IMPACT on Page 26A

Impact on existing groups, debt risk is over-played, proponents say visory Committee, which helped design the project. “Yes, food tax was down slightly this summer, but we have over $7.4 million in food tax balance that we can’t spend on anything but this project,” Miller noted. Given this dedicated reserve, it would be unlikely that the city would default on the project’s debt, unless the restaurant industry experienced a catastrophic collapse over a period of several years. Regardless of the funding arrangement, Christ said the group was opposed in principle to spending public money on improving an amenity that already operates at a loss. The convention center required a $1.3 million subsidy this past fiscal year. Continued from Page 25A

“It seems the rule is that if it loses money, it has to be publicly funded,” Christ said. “If this was a worthwhile project, why wouldn’t a private business done it already?” The convention center is one of many operations the city maintains that does not make money in and of itself, but which creates an economic stimulus. “We’ve seen a huge amount of development and economic growth because of things the city has done to draw people,” Miller said. “That’s the whole idea of a public-private partnership. There are things that can be done publicly that individual economies cannot.” The larger debate, and likely the one which will determine the success of Christ’s petition, is the issue of

whether or not the performing arts center will actually accomplish what it desires. Earlier this year, the project came under fire after an internal spreadsheet from convention center staff was leaked, listing 33 events that would be adversely impacted by the renovation. Only nine of those events would be able to utilize the performing arts center. With fixed seating, the theater will replace more flexible open-layout hall space, potentially hindering some large gatherings and trade shows. Groups such as the Epic Cheerleaders and the Maryland State Firemen’s Convention had expressed concern over the project, and local hoteliers and promoters said that the theater was too small to provide the size of bookings they required. Since then, however, Convention Center Director Larry Noccolino has said that those issues have been resolved, and he is confident the performing arts center will be able to add new events without compromising existing ones. But Christ is still skeptical.

“All of the goods of this project are entirely theoretical, but all the bads are finite,” he said. “That’s not the best way to do business.” If OCTSJ’s petition is successful, it will throw a serious wrench in the city’s fiscal planning. The town is projected to have spent roughly $1 million out-of-pocket by the end of the year on the project, which it expects to reimburse with borrowed money after the bond sale. Further, it has already entered into contracts with design and construction firms for the upcoming work, which is anticipated to take until the end of 2014. As such, City Hall officials have already come out with skepticism regarding the petition drive. “Please listen very carefully when you are approached to sign this petition,” Councilman Doug Cymek wrote in a Facebook posting this week. “In the coming days you will hear the facts from the mayor and others that will be straight forward and to the point. “Should Mr. Christ be successful with his petition it will undoubtedly be costly to the taxpayers of Ocean City,” Cymek wrote.

(Oct. 25, 2013) After one trooper was struck and critically injured and another trooper’s car was destroyed within four days, it is clear to Maryland State Police that drivers need to be reminded about the state’s ‘move over’ law, which is intended to increase safety for police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel when they are working along Maryland roads. State troopers across Maryland will be conducting coordinated traffic initiatives reminding motorists of the importance of the ‘move over” law. Special enforcement operations will be underway in every area of the state. Drivers are being warned now to be alert for these operations. Early on the morning of Oct. 6, Trooper Jacqueline Kline was struck by a passing vehicle while she was assisting another trooper on the shoulder of Route 100 in Anne Arundel County. The preliminary investigation indicates the driver failed to move over as he passed the two marked police cars with their emergency lights activated. Trooper Kline remains hospitalized in critical condition. While investigating a crash on I695 in Baltimore County on Oct. 12, Trooper First Class Justin Updegraff’s

marked patrol car was destroyed when a driver failed to move over or slow down. Fortunately, Tfc. Updegraff was outside his vehicle when it was struck. He did not sustain any injuries. The intent of the ‘move over’ law is to provide an extra barrier of safety for police officers, firefighters, and emergency rescue personnel working on Maryland roads. The law requires drivers approaching from the rear of a stopped emergency vehicle with it lights activated, to change into an available lane not next to the emergency vehicle. This movement should only be done if safe to do so. When there is no available lane for drivers to move over into, such as on a single lane road, drivers are required to slow to a reasonable and prudent speed as they pass the emergency scene. It is hoped this awareness initiative will remind drivers to be aware of police and emergency workers stopped on the roads and to move away from them or slow down as they pass by the traffic stop or incident scene. Violation of the ‘move over’ law is a primary offense with a fine of $110 and one point. If the violation contributes to a traffic crash, the fine is $150 and three points. If the violation contributes to a traffic crash resulting in death or serious injury, the fine is $750 and three points.

Bike rider raises funds to benefit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Home Run For Hearingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group

(Oct. 25, 2013) Chesapeake Hearing Centers, Inc. presented Jacob Landis a sponsorship check recently in his quest to raise $1,000,000 and hit a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home Run For Hearing.â&#x20AC;? Landis, 24, left his home in Annapolis last April for a 175-day bicycle ride which took him more than 10,000 miles to every Major League Baseball park in the country to raise awareness about the benefits of cochlear implants. Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride ended in September at Marlins Park in Miami. Deaf by age 10, Jacob received a cochlear implant allowing him to be fully functional in the hearing world. Combining his love of cycling and baseball with a desire to help others, Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to raise $1 million for others who could benefit from a cochlear implant but cannot afford one. Hearing impairment is now the number one birth defect among children born in America. With more than 500,000 Americans living with severe to profound hearing loss, cochlear implants are the most successful medical intervention for those profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. A small, complex electronic device, the implant bypasses the damaged parts of the inner ear and delivers electrical impulses to the auditory nerve sending information to the brain. Cochlear implants, coupled with intensive post-op therapy, can help young children to acquire speech, language, and social skills. Adults who have lost all or most of their hearing later in life often can benefit from cochlear implants as they learn to associate the signal provided by an implant with sounds they remember. Having completed his ride and surviving being hit by a truck in South Florida, Jacob is still determined to hit his fund raising goal. He raised $150,000 during the Ride and is continuing to see the fund grow. Donations can be made through www.jacobsride.com. Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride is a donor-directed fund created under The Annapolis Community Foundation a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Proceeds from Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride will be distributed to foundations who help cochlear implant candidates including proceeds will benefit The Gift of Hearing Foundation in Narragansett, R.I.; The Listening Center in the Department of Otolaryngology â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore; the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.; and the J.W. Pickle Foundation in Nashville, Tenn. For more information, please visit www.helpyourhearing.com.

OBITUARIES Dr. Robert Thomas Adkins, M.D. OCEAN CITY– Dr. Robert Thomas Adkins, M.D., 83, of Ocean City passed away on Wednesday Oct. 16, 2013, with his wife by his side, at the Peninsula Regional Medical Center from cardiac complications resulting from a recent fall. Born on Feb. 19, 1930 in Fruitland, he was the son of the late Levin Isaac Adkins and Louise Thomas Adkins. Having graduated from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy (1952) and the University of Maryland School of Medicine (1956), he went on to Intern at Mercy Hospital before completing a two year obligation in the United States Army as a Post Surgeon in Indiantown Gap, Pa. Upon completion of his service obligation, he returned to Fruitland where he started a successful private medical practice serving the families of Fruitland and surrounding areas.   In 1968 he expanded his medical services by joining what was then known as the Peninsula General Hospital and the “accident – ward”, later to be called the Emergency Room. He, along with some fellow physicians, started a corporation that still exists to this day known as Emergency Service Associates (ESA) serving the Peninsula Regional Medical Center, the Atlantic General Hospital, and the McCready Memorial Hospital for medical services for Trauma, Cardiac, Adult and Pediatric emergencies. In December 1994, after having helped guide the growth and decision making for emergency medical services on the lower Eastern Shore, from the days of the “accident-ward” in the 1960’s to what is now a state-of- the-art Trauma Center, he chose to retire from medical practice. In honor of his years of tireless service to the community, the Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) showed honor to his career by naming the Emergency Room facility “The Robert T. Adkins, M.D. Emergency/Trauma Center.”  In addition to his medical career, both private and at PRMC, he was very active

in the development of the local emergency medical services (EMS) system for the Eastern Shore, and was instrumental in the education and training of the medical personnel “in the field”, our Paramedics. He served as Medical Director for Region IV for MIEMSS EMS for many years and was awarded “EMS Physician Of The Year in 1995”.  He was a very active member of the Ocean City Paramedics Foundation,  acting not only as a liaison between the Foundation and the Ocean City Paramedics (OCFD), but also providing guidance to the fiscal operation of the Foundation.  He served as the President of the Foundation in 2000-2001 and had only recently retired from the Foundation in September of this year.   Doc, as he was known by many friends, found enjoyment thru his role in numerous organizations. He was a 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Mason, a long term member of Centennial Masonic Lodge 221, AF & AM, the Salisbury Scottish Rite (2002 Mason Of The Year, a Past President,  and “Director Of Works” for the past 12 years), the Eastern Shore Scottish Rite (a Past President), the Baltimore Scottish Rite, the Boumi Temple Of The Shrine, and the Ocean City Shrine Club (Past President). He was also an active member of the Atlantic United Methodist Church in Ocean City and he, along with his wife, established a Christian Education Endowment Fund for the youth of AUMC.   He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Nancy Jackson Adkins, four children, Catherine Adkins Suraci and husband F. Skip, ESQ.,  of Belle Haven, Va., Laura Kramer and husband Fred,   of Fruitland, James Adkins and wife Catherine, of Berlin, and Hal Adkins and wife Alison, of Ocean City and 11 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. He was preceded in death by one son, Dr. Robert Thomas (Tom) Adkins, Jr, D.O.  Prior to his death he had chosen to have his body donated to The Anatomy Board Of Maryland for medical education and research.

(Oct. 25, 2013) Five Stephen Decatur golfers will compete in the 4A/3A state championship on the University of Maryland College Park course next week. Last week’s District VIII championship at the Hyatt Regency Resort in Cambridge was a qualifier for the state competition. Decatur finished in first place with a 314. Contributing to the win was freshman Matt Kristick (73), senior captain Andrew Urban (78) and juniors Danny Parker (81) and Brooks Holloway (82). The foursome will represent Decatur as a team during the 3A/4A state tournament, which begins with the semifinal round on Monday. Junior Delaney Iacona shot a 90 during the district match. If a female golfer shoots a 94 or lower during districts she advances to the state tournament. Iacona’s score qualified her for states as an individual.

This will be the third time both Urban and Iacona have participated in the state championship. Urban said he is excited to compete in the state tournament and he hopes to perform better than last year. “To compete at the state level you have to practice harder than your peers, that means on and off the course, every single day. You must persevere and never give up even after a bad day,” Urban said. “As part of the team, I hope to play my best and play my hardest to help get this team a victory to end my senior year. If we all play to our potential we have a definite chance of taking the state title.” Iacona said she is also excited to make her third state appearance. Participating in the match gives the Seahawks time to grow closer as a team, she said. “You have to relax and stay confident to play at states. It’s a big tournament and anything can happen. You just have to stay positive,” Iacona said. “I hope that this year I can shoot in the 70’s. I know that I am capable of it. I just have to believe. I also hope that the boys can post a good number as a team.” Kristick, Holloway and Parker will make their state tournament debuts and all three players said they are looking forward to the experience.

Kristick has made a name for himself this season, performing at a high level as a freshman. He said he has high expectations for himself and the team at states. “If our team plays to the potential we have, then we will have a good chance in competing for the state title,” Kristick said. “For myself, I’m using this year to gain some experience that I can use in the years to come. I still expect that I will be able to compete with the upperclassmen there, but still understand that I’m only a freshman.” Holloway said it takes consistency, perseverance and discipline to compete at the state level. “Golf is played as a team, but each of us contributes individually. My goal is to play well and finish strong for my team,” he said. “I hope to gain experience playing at the state level and improve my game in preparation for my senior golf season.” Parker wants to shoot in the 70s the first day of competition and assist his team in advancing to the second round. He hopes to play up to his capabilities and help the team shoot a low overall score, he said. “It takes a lot of hard work, talent, dedication, desire and passion to comSee STATE on Page 31A

(Oct. 25, 2013) The Stephen Decatur girls' soccer team wrapped up regularseason competition with three games last week. The Seahawks fell to the Parkside Rams 3-1 last Monday and 2-1 to the Easton Warriors on Wednesday. Last Thursday, Decatur shut out the Wi-Hi Indians 2-0 in Salisbury. Junior Jillian Petito scored both goals. "The end of the week last week the girls were tired and kind of beat up, but (after the weekend) they looked well rested [Monday]," Coach Misty Bunting said. "The girls look good. They're focused." The Seahawks finished the season 74. They received the No. 4 seed in Section I of the 3A South regional tournament. "We have to take it game by game now. Your record doesn't mean much," Bunting said. "We have new wind in our sails and we're ready to go." During practices this week, Bunting said the Seahawks planned to correct the mistakes they've been making. She said the team's transition game has been weak out of the back and the girls need to settle the ball and not get caught flatfooted. Making better decisions was another aspect of the game the squad planned to work on this week. Decatur was originally set to play the No. 5 Northeast (AA) Eagles Friday, Oct. 25., in Berlin, but because the football team has a home game, the match was pushed back to Thursday. The winner will battle the top-seeded Huntingtown Hurricanes (10-0-1) on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Monday and the 2A/1A schools will take the course Tuesday for the semifinal rounds. The top 40 percent of teams and top 40 percent of individuals from each group will advance to the final round on Wednesday, Oct. 30. Having the state tournament on the University of Maryland course benefits Western Shore teams, Decatur Coach Jim Krall said. Decatur is at a disadvantage, he said, because his golfers are used to playing flat courses. “The Decatur team is extremely talented and can hang with the best of

them, if they use good course management and club selection. One or two practice rounds can not compare to players who grew up playing hilly courses,” he said. “The Decatur golfers must practice hitting shots with the ball well above and below their feet, as well as downhill and uphill lies. If they can master the changes in elevation, they can slam dunk the competition. Nonetheless, Coach [Don] Furbay and I are extremely proud of everyone and look forward to an exciting state tournament experience.”

(Oct. 25, 2013) The Worcester Prep field hockey team shut out its final two opponents of the regular season, the Holly Grove Eagles and Gunston Day Herons, 5-0 to remain undefeated. Last Friday against Holly Grove in Berlin, senior captain Meg Lingo scored two goals and Alison Greer had one to give the Lady Mallards a 3-0 lead at halftime. Lingo and Greer, a senior, each netted a shot in the second half. Senior goalie Maddie Pilchard stopped two Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shots.

On Monday, senior captain Sarah Arrington tallied two goals, and Lingo and senior Hannah Esham scored one each to put Worcester on top 4-0 over Gunston at the end of the first half. Lingo logged the Mallardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fifth goal in the second half. Pilchard recorded two saves and freshman Stormy McGuiness made three. Junior right back Carolyn Dorey also came up with a big save. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played very well. We have a set groove now,â&#x20AC;?

(Oct. 25, 2013) The Worcester Prep and Chesapeake Christian volleyball teams went head-to-head last Tuesday in the semifinal round of the Peninsula Athletic Christian Conference tournament. The Crusaders won the first game on their home court in Easton, 25-15, but the Worcester Prep Mallards fought back and earned a 25-15 victory in the second contest. Prep struggled to play as a cohesive unit and poor passing and serving led to the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demise. Chesapeake Christian took the third and fourth games, 25-23 and 25-19, respectively, to win the competition. Junior Mattie Maull was the top producer for Worcester at the net. She tallied three kills and blocked two hits. Freshman Karlie Southcomb had three kills and a block. Prep senior Claire Stickler, who received All-Conference honors, logged two aces and three digs. The Mallards lost 11 matches before winning the final two of the regular season â&#x20AC;&#x153;when things really started to make sense and click,â&#x20AC;? said first-year Assistant Coach Cheryl Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls played and had fun. The wins happened due to their commitment to play as a team by giving their best joint effort.â&#x20AC;? First-year Head Coach Karen Hammer said her playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; level of performance improved from the start of the season, which kicked off in mid-August, to the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had hoped for a better season, but we had injuries and illnesses and other schedule conflicts that pushed us back during practices and games,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My words of wisdom or encouragement were to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;erase I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t from your vocabulary.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would hope some of them can and will remember those words one day. I hope they will take this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season and be a stronger and more passionate team next year.â&#x20AC;? Added Brown, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team is just in the beginning stages, starting with the basics especially communication. Some individuals can celebrate personal accomplishments for their stats and knowledge gained about the sport.â&#x20AC;? The first year coaching the squad was a learning experience, Hammer and Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great opportunity to share our love/passion for the sport,â&#x20AC;? Brown added. Three senior captainsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Stickler, Bethany Wolpin and McKenna Shanahanâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;will graduate in May. This was only the third year the volleyball program has been offered at the school. The seniors have competed since the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inception. Underclassmen made up the majority of Hammerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster this year, which bodes well for the future as they will return in 2014 with a season of experience under their belts.

(Oct. 25, 2013) Senior P.J. Copes led the Stephen Decatur football team with three touchdowns last Thursday against the Wi-Hi Indians in Salisbury. The visiting Seahawks won the game 29-8 and improved their record to 4-3. “We played well on the offensive side of the ball. We played hard, we were aggressive, we were disciplined and we didn’t turn the ball over,” said Decatur Coach Bob Knox. “On defense, we played well enough to win. The effort was good, we just missed too many tackles. On a couple of third downs we stepped up and held them.” Decatur junior quarterback Justin Meekins and Copes pushed the Seahawks to a 13-0 first-quarter lead. Copes scored his second touchdown of the night just before halftime. The Seahawks went into the break ahead 200. They added a safety in the third quarter to gain a 22-0 advantage. Wi-Hi (2-5) came back with eight in the fourth quarter to cut Decatur’s lead to 14. Copes ran the ball 35 yards in the final minutes to secure the victory.

(Oct. 25, 2013) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team ended the regular season on a high note, with a 5-0 victory over the Salisbury Christian Jaguars last Friday. “We played very well and connected the dots all over the field,” said Prep Coach Carol Hartnett after the win in Salisbury. Senior captain Lilly DiNardo had a hat trick in the first half and junior Molly Soule also scored to give the Mallards a 4-0 lead. Freshman Olivia Bescak tallied the team’s fifth goal in the second half. Sophomore goalie Grace Tunis played 60 minutes and made eight saves. Mikalah Potvin, a junior, took over in goal for the last 20 minutes had one save. The Mallards finished the regular season 7-2. They had the same record as Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres, so the squad to get the top seed for the tournament was determined by a coin toss. Worcester won the flip and received the No. 1 seed. Worcester hosted the No. 4 Salisbury School Dragons Wednesday for semifinal action and won 7-0. It was also Senior Day. Six Mallards were honored. DiNardo had another first-half hat trick. She added a fourth goal in the second half. Sophomores Julia D’Antonio and Laura Issel and freshman Maggie Coutu chipped in with a goal apiece. Tunis had six saves and Potvin three. “They played well,” Hartnett said. “The kids were pretty motivated.” Worcester will battle Sts. Peter & Paul for the ESIAC championship title today, Friday, at 3:30 p.m. in Berlin. The teams met twice during the regular season. The Mallards won the first game 1-0 and the Sabres took the second 2-1. Friday’s competition is the grudge match. “We’ve come far along since the beginning of the season. They’ve learned so much and they’re applying it,” Hartnett said. “I feel like all our ducks are in a row going into Friday’s game.”

Serving huge part of Decatur Seahawks’ victory over Warriors Squad now preparing for regional competition; play kicks off next week LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Oct. 25, 2013) The Stephen Decatur Seahawks were smiling and laughing and it was obvious they were having a good time on the court Monday as they faced the Pocomoke Warriors volleyball team in Berlin. “I think that makes a world of difference. When they’re having Coach Zimmer fun and they’re being a little goofy, I feel like they play more comfortable and a lot better,” said Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer after the victory. The home team won the first game 25-9. The Seahawks outscored the Warriors 25-13 in the second game. Serving was key in the third game as Decatur tallied 14 aces in the 25-5 win.

Stephen Decatur senior captain Katie VanBruggen plays the ball over the net during Monday’s game against Pocomoke in Berlin.

Senior Kiley Cooke served five of those aces. She also logged seven kills in the three-game match. Also contributing to the win was senior captain Katie VanBruggen (eight aces, six kills), who finished the third game with a jump serve ace, and juniors Haley Trice (seven aces, six assists) and Kayla Heinz (seven assists). Senior Ashley DePaul had five digs. “I thought we started off a little slow and flat-footed, but then we definitely picked it up, and making a few little adjustments of the front row getting off the net when they needed to, I thought they did much better by the end,” Zimmer said. “We were moving and talking a lot better.” The draw for position in the regional tournament brackets is Monday. Decatur (8-7) will compete in Section I of the 3A South division. Playoff action is scheduled to begin Thursday, Oct. 31. “I still feel like there are little things that we need to improve on that we’ve been working on all season long that maybe haven’t quite clicked yet,” Zimmer said. “But if they can play like they did [Monday], comfortable [and] having fun, then we’ll be fine.”

Decatur boys’ soccer team falls to Easton in Bayside title game Greenwood: I try to take every loss as a positive. I hope this is a wake-up call LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Oct. 25, 2013) The Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team hoped to use the large Washington College field to its advantage, but the game plan didn’t work out for the Seahawks in their 3-0 loss to the Easton Warriors in the Bayside Conference championship Monday. Coach “Going into the game, I thought we’d Greenwood play better because it’s a big field and we’d have more space to work. We worked on spreading the field during practice,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “But there was too much space and it didn’t play to our advantage. We tried to play spread out, what we play on our field. We tried to play a big game on a big field, but we should have played a

small game on a big field.” Greenwood said the Warriors had the Seahawks back on their heels in the first half. Decatur had trouble generating any offense, he said. Easton, meanwhile, raced to a 2-0 halftime lead. Greenwood said he made some strategic moves and shifted players around in the second half. The Seahawks had some opportunities, but the Warriors packed in the defensive end and held Decatur scoreless. “We’ve got to find our heart,” Greenwood said. “I try to take every loss as a positive. I hope this is a wakeup call.” The next day before practice, Greenwood hung a motivational sign on the goal net as the Seahawks now prepare for the playoffs. Decatur (10-3), who has been hampered by injuries, received the No. 2 seed in Section I of the 3A South regional tournament and a first-round bye. The squad will play the No. 3 Northeast (AA) Eagles Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 4 p.m. in Berlin. “I’m optimistic. We need a good week of training, hard work and focus,” Greenwood said earlier this week. “I hope to have a good showing on Tuesday.”

PAGE 36A

Forget FEMA, it’s wrong, city’s right What a conundrum. Resort officials and others have argued for years that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, should recognize the reduced risk of major flood damage here because of tougher building code standards and the resort’s dune protection system. Now that FEMA has acknowledged that risk reduction because of the dune line, city officials are apparently reluctant to relax these strict building requirements because they believe that same level of danger still exists. The problem with construction codes of all types, which are designed to protect not only property owners and the occupants of structures, but also government itself, is they make building anything much more expensive. Thus the conflicting circumstances posed by FEMA’s acknowledgment of reduced risk and the rigid construction standards that Ocean City government imposed to address the previous assessment of risk would suggest that one of these entities is out of sync with reality. If you guessed local government, you would be wrong. It’s FEMA. Even before Sandy destroyed coastal New Jersey and parts of New York, FEMA was $18 billion in debt. In the aftermath of Sandy, it not only redrew flood maps, but also raised premiums in so-called high-risk areas to impossibly high levels. Here, FEMA went in the other direction, determining that there is little flood risk for ocean block structures behind the dune line. Common sense dictates that this is not so and, while some aspects of the building code might go too far, the overall protections the code provides make sense no matter what FEMA says. Besides, the relatively inexpensive flood insurance rates local property owners qualify for under FEMA’s new designations, along with the city’s own flood protection measures, give property owners a good combination of high safety at a comparatively low cost.

EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

My desk was waiting for me in Ocean City PHIL JACOBS ■ Editor Thirty-nine years ago, I remember putting on the only tie I owned. Purple paisley with a gold background. I combined it with what was probably the only unwrinkled shirt hanging in my University of Maryland, College Park dorm closet. I headed over to the Journalism Building, a junior journalism major. It was a summer internship meeting day. I had signed up to speak to only one editor. If journalism wasn’t going to work for me that summer, I’d be back working behind a bar owned by my roommate. I really wanted to write. I wanted to cover sports. Mostly, I wanted to spend the summer in Ocean City. The ocean was then and still is a place of healing when it means working. The young man sitting behind the internship introduced himself with a great handshake and huge smile as Gee Williams. We spoke for about an hour. All I know is that there was a letter waiting for me when I returned home the following weekend to my

parents’ house. It had the Eastern Shore Times logo on the envelope. It was either a rejection note or the beginning of a career. I remember my mother urging me to open the letter right away. But I was so afraid that the answer would be a “no.” Instead, after holding it up to the kitchen light to see if I could get answers through a sealed envelope, I tore it open. Few actual times in one’s life do we have a “life changer.” This one was one of those times. That May, I came to Ocean City. Our office was located on 33rd at Ocean Highway. Challenge No. 1 happened on day No. 1. I was the Sports Editor of “The Diamondback,” the University of Maryland’s student daily. I covered Coach Jerry Claiborne and the football team; Coach Charles “Lefty” Driesell and the basketball team and Coach Buddy Beardmore’s NCAA champion lacrosse team. My intern supervisor was a young guy named Stewart Dobson. Both he and Gee together gave me a map of the Atlantic Ocean with various fishing spots and wrecks on it.

This came with the phone numbers of tackle shops downtown. Fishing, they told me, was going to be my primary beat. I had never gone fishing in my life. It was a world though that had me go out on several fishing boats during the summer, covering a relatively new tournament called “The White Marlin Open.” After leaving Ocean City to cover sports and then become a news reporter and then an editor, with an eight-year stint in Detroit, and the rest pretty much in Baltimore, I always kept my friendship alive with Stewart Dobson. I’d vacation at the beach and would at times visit or call him for a piece of advice or to get his take on a situation. Over the years, Stewart would always say, “your desk is waiting for you.” In mid-summer, I made the call to Stewart yet again. The conversation ended with “your desk is waiting for you.” This time I listened. I’m sitting behind that desk now. It was worth the wait to be here.

over 35 years. My husband and I have experienced a wonderful quality of life raising our three daughters here in town. We have had the good fortune of running several successful businesses in Ocean City. Our first business was a sailboat rental on the bay in 1979. We grew our businesses to the point that in some years we were employing 50-100 seasonal workers at a time. As we designed and built our businesses, we gained a multitude of experience working with the Town of Ocean City through the building and permit process. Our latest project is the Town Center Midtown Boardwalk on 67th St. Through all of those years in development, we have realized how lucky we are to live in a town where the people we elect and the town staff sincerely cares about Ocean City. For that, we are grateful. We have watched the landscape of Ocean City evolve over the years and we have been part of that evolution. As we built our businesses, others were doing the same and slowly what used to be sandy lots along the bay have become condos or restaurants, homes or shops. Older, dilapidated buildings have

been replaced by new construction. In addition to our new boardwalk, we have a public library and a beautiful community art gallery. Life just continues to get better and better. The point of my letter is that Ocean City is wonderful and unique. If you own a business in Ocean City, you know that a booming summer season will pay your bills and if you’re lucky enough, you can put a little aside for business improvements and enough to get you through the winter. In the offseason, when the crowds subside, many businesses depend heavily on the Convention Center business. Conventions have filled hotel rooms and restaurants and have a great impact on the tax revenue that Ocean City collects. The idea of the Convention Center attracting more business, especially in the off-season, has been talked about for years. Over the last 10 years a groundswell of interest to expand the versatility of the Convention Center has developed. The idea of a new stream of revenue, in addition to hosting traditional conventions, led to an extensive study

Wary of petition

Editor, I would like to warn the residents of Ocean City about a selfish and destructive anti-Ocean City petition that you will be asked to sign. Do not sign it. The petition was created by a gentleman who does not live in Ocean City. He’s a resident of Virginia. I’m sorry for this individual who I’m sure has good intentions but certainly doesn’t realize that his petition to stop construction of Phase II of the Convention Center will cost taxpayers millions. The Phase II renovation was carefully designed to be financed with state funds and through an existing Convention Center Maintenance fund (.5 percent food and beverage tax) so that the project would not cost local taxpayers a dime. If Tony Christ gets enough signatures on his petition, to stop construction, he will jeopardize the state funding that is in place and taxpayers will go from paying no tax for this project, to paying millions more after a delay. If you don’t want higher taxes, do not sign the petition. I have lived in Ocean City for

READERS’ FORUM anything...and the businesses, community and visitors would reap the benefit of music performances and shows, especially during the off-season. This is a win-win for everyone. The city has received the financial commitment from the Stadium Authority and has broken ground. To the detriment of the businesses and residents who will benefit from Phase II of the Convention Center, Tony Christ will be knocking on your door asking you to sign a petition to stop the construction of the Performing Arts facility in the Convention Center. I’m not sure what motivates a person to start a petition against a project that has the full support of the Governor, the entire City Council and the vast majority of residents and businesses (who frankly need the additional help in the off season). I can’t think of why a few disgruntled, unhappy people (some who don’t even live in Ocean City) would

which supported the idea of renovating part of the Convention Center so that a new arts and entertainment market could be developed. The study showed such a great potential for an increase in additional tax revenue that the Governor and Stadium Authority agreed to finance 41 percent with the balance of construction costs paid with an existing food and beverage tax, so the renovation would not cost local residents a dime. (By law, the food and beverage tax can only be used for Convention Center maintenance and development.) With all of the financing in place, the Ocean City Council voted unanimously to approve Phase II (construction of a Multi-purpose Performing Arts facility) after Phase I was completed (an additional ballroom on the waterfront of the Convention Center). The council was especially pleased that the renovation would not cost resident tax payers Continued from Page 36A

My long-time friend Phil Jacobs is working with me after 30-some years, which is a good and bad thing. So far, we have done absolutely nothing. Deadlines have come and gone, stories have moldered in the “To be edited” folder, computers have crashed, software has been visited by the devil, and coworkers have set upon each other, while we blissfully reminisce, oblivious to it all. “Hey,” the voice shouts through the open door of our shared office, “Chevette (not her real name) bit me!” “Super. Speaking of biting commentary, Phil, do you remember the time … before I forget, we should check the policy manual’s no-biting clause … Crazy Bob wrote about that after-hours club?” “Yeah, hahahahahaha. Did I ever tell you about the time …” “Oh boys, hate to interrupt, but Semolina (not her real name) has poured gasoline on her computer and has a funny look on her face …” “Funny looks? Ha! Crazy Bob inhaled a moth one night. Now that was a funny look!” “Gentlemen? Deadline has passed … a couple of days ago, actually.” In reality, it’s nothing like that. We have been working ever since he arrived two weeks ago, although I do admit pausing occasionally to recall certain circumstances in the course of our journalistic development. The thing is, Phil contends that I was his supervisor back in his intern days, although I don’t remember doing much supervision other than to say, “No running with scissors.” Nevertheless, he is prone to saying nice things about me, none of which are true and are, no doubt, the result of his having worked in the city so long that he mistakes moderate grumpiness for joy. The other day, for example, I had just read an email from one of the many, many people who “know the true facts” and was just about to staple my own forehead out of frustration, when he popped and said, “What are you so happy about?” “Phil,” I said, “You see me about to staple my head and you think I’m happy?” “Sure. If you were unhappy, you’d be stapling someone else’s head, like when Crazy Bob …” “Oh, yeah. Hahahahahaha. Boy, those were the days, weren’t they? Like when Lazy Lester the Fester Tester had to …” No, really, I’m making all that up too. We really are getting our work done and more. It’s been good, the staff is happy, positive things are happening and all is right in the workplace. Besides, everyone seems to enjoy our food fights.

Drivers warned to keep eye out for deer during mating season About 1.6M deer-motor vehicle crashes occur each year on roads nationwide

(Oct. 24, 2013) It’s deer mating season or the “rut.” That means drivers need to keep a watchful eye for deer at dusk and dawn when they are most amorous. Frisky, white-tailed deer will go to any length to mate, and that includes running into the path of moving vehicles, AAA Mid-Atlantic warns. Deer-vehicle crashes can be costly and deadly, the auto club advises. In addition to white-tailed deer, motorists need to watch for other animals, such as bears, roaming into the roadway without warning. Approximately 1.6 million deermotor vehicle crashes occur each year on roads nationwide, resulting in approximately 200 fatalities, tens of thousands of injuries and over $3.6 billion in vehicle damage, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In Maryland, there were 1,587 animal-involved crashes on average yearly during the five-year period from 2007 to 2011, according to the latest data available from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration’s Highway Safety Office. On average, 1,355 crashes resulted in property damage. Animal-involved crashes resulted in 269 injured persons and one fatality on average. In Maryland, AAA Insurance reported a 2.8 percent increase in the number of animal collision claims filed by insured motorists between 2010 and the end of 2012. During that time the average cost of a claim was approximately $1,980. In Maryland, the auto club reports that the most animal collision claims filed were from the counties of Carroll, Baltimore, Frederick, Montgomery, and Harford. “Motorists need to be extra vigilant no matter what road they travel, but especially on rural, wooded roads and during commuting times which coincide with high times of deer activity. If a deer-vehicle collision is unavoidable, don’t swerve out of your lane or lose control of your vehicle.” said Ragina C. Averella, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Also protect yourself by always wearing a seat belt and staying alert and

t e n . y toda

sober.” So why did the deer cross the road? It literally boils down to biology. No matter how mild the temperatures are outside this fall, deer across our area are in heat right now. They are roaming the woods and area roadways to mate. Experts remind us, to try not to suddenly swerve to avoid hitting a deer. A collision into oncoming traffic could be even worse. Yearlings or young bucks are on their own looking for their own territory, as their mothers, who gave birth to them last year, are mating again. So deer are abundant this time of year and “they can sprint up to 35 miles per hour and are able to leap over 8 foot tall barriers,” warns the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. AAA Tips for Drivers During Deer Mating Season •Scan the road and shoulders ahead of you. Looking ahead helps provide enough reaction time if an animal is spotted. Also, remember some animals move in groups, so when there is one, there are usually more in the area. •Use high beam headlights if there’s no oncoming traffic. Wildlife may be spotted sooner when using high beams. This will give the driver time to slow down, move over or honk the horn to scare the animal away. High beams also help in spotting some animals’ reflective eyes. •If a collision is unavoidable, apply the brakes firmly and remain in your lane. Swerving to avoid an animal can often cause a more serious crash or result in drivers losing control of vehicles. •Be extra cautious at dawn and dusk. Most animals, especially deer, tend to be more active early in the morning and at dusk. •Slow down and use extra caution when traveling through areas with a high and active wildlife population. Be aware of increased wildlife movement in some regions during certain times of year such as hunting or mating season. •Drivers should always wear a seat belt and remain awake, alert and sober. •Do not try to move the animal. An injured animal might panic and seriously injure someone. Call police or animal control for assistance. •AAA Mid-Atlantic also advises motorists to make sure their auto insurance policy covers animal strikes.

Beach maze and great pumpkin race highlighted O.C.toberfest celebration for all ages continues in downtown area this wknd. CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) O.C.toberfest topped last year’s numbers in its first weekend and continues this Saturday and Sunday with a giant beach maze and the Great Pumpkin Race, both free events. The maze for all ages will be open tomorrow and Sunday, Oct. 26-27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the beach at North Division Street. The races begin tomorrow, Oct. 26, at 2 p.m. as homemade pumpkin racecars vie for prizes in head-to-head heats at North Division Street. O.C.toberfest first came to the city last year with the goal of bringing more family friendly Halloween activities to Ocean City, event co-producer Bob Rothermel said. Hurricane Sandy made the second weekend a wash in 2012, but this year’s events have drawn a much larger crowd so far, he said. “It was great,” Rothermel said of O.C.toberfest’s first 2013 weekend. “Even in the rain, we had several

thousand people go through (the maze) each day.” The family friendly beach maze is the size of a football field and features different themes, from pirates to zombie mermaids and creepy clowns, with a few live characters in the mix. Close to 6,000 people walked through it last weekend, topping about 4,500 trips total in 2012,

“Everyone’s very appreciative. It gives families something to do. We’re hoping for a great weekend.” BOB ROTHERMEL O.C.toberfest co-producer

Rothermel said. “That was a wonderful turnout for the first weekend being open,” said event organizer Meredith Herbert of Special Event Productions Inc. “People from all ages — newborns to grandmas — went through the maze and we received a lot of positive reactions.” Last weekend’s other O.C.toberfest

event, the Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade, also drew a larger crowd than last year, as more than 70 dogs accompanied by groups of up to four people each paraded down the Boardwalk in costume on Saturday. Close to 2,000 people watched as two- and four-legged participants dressed as Dr. Who, Popeye and Olive Oil, pirates and much more made their way across the boards, Herbert said. Local Liz Ortiz, of Berlin, and her Rottweiler Murdock won an award for their Little Red Riding Hood/Big Bad Wolf costumes. With clear skies predicted this weekend, the Great Pumpkin Race should also draw a crowd on Saturday as participants send their racecars, made of a single pumpkin with wheels, side-by-side down a ramp. There will be prizes for race winners as well as for creativity and decorations in this free event. Registration begins at 1 p.m. The rain date is 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, in the same location. “Everyone’s very appreciative. It gives families something to do,” Rothermel said. “We’re hoping for a great weekend.” To learn more about O.C.toberfest and see a video of last year’s beach maze, visit www.specialeventpro.com/ octoberfest.php.

Kid’s Menu Too!

WE ARE

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by week’s end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you’ve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You’ll find people more likely to offer information if you’re discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You’re probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it’s time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week’s end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues’ full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian’s creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you’re respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you.

Firefighters honored during 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in OC Saturday’s event raises funds for family members, coworkers and survivors CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Ocean City will host its inaugural 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Pyramid Condominium in Ocean City. Participants will climb the Pyramid’s stairs more than five times for a total of 110 stories — the number of floors in the Twin Towers — while each carries a picture of a fallen firefighter. “You are completing the event for

him,” said James L. Jester, President of the Delmarva Emerald Society, co-sponsor of the event. The stair climb is open to anyone in the community — firefighters, police and civilians — and will raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), which leads efforts to honor fallen firefighters and assist their families and coworkers. “The tragedy of Sept.11 was the single largest loss of firefighters in our nation’s history,” said Chief Ron Siarnicki, executive director of the NFFF. “The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is an opportunity for anyone in the community to demonstrate respect and admiration for these courageous men.” The climbers in Ocean City join a nationwide effort to remember 9/11’s fallen heroes, which began in Colorado in 2005

when five firefighters convened at a highrise building in downtown Denver to climb 110 flights of stairs in memory of their brothers who died in the 9/11 attacks. The following year, 12 firefighters participated, and the event grew until it was capped at 343 participants in 2008. As of last week, the Ocean City event had 31 participants confirmed. “I’m hoping that number will double,” Jester said. To find the right location to bring the stair climb to Ocean City, the Delmarva Emerald Society e-mailed Susan Jones of the Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association and asked her to send the request to her members. “Within a day or two at the most of that email going out, the manager… of the Pyramid was one of the very first

ones to call us,” Jester said. “They were on board from the very beginning.” The stair climb is open to anyone, and members of the community are invited to participate not only as climbers, but also as volunteers or donors. The event is not a race, but an opportunity to honor the fallen firefighters. Registration for the Ocean City 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb costs $25, with all funds benefiting the FDNY Counseling Unit, which has partnered with the NFFF to offer peer counseling and resources to the survivors of fallen firefighters. Visit www.911stairclimb.com/events.html to register, or come early to the event to sign up. All participants will receive a photo ID of one of the fallen firefighters of Sept. 11. Check-in begins at 8:30 am.

(Oct. 25, 2013) The Fall Feast of St. Martin, a time to celebrate nature’s bounty at the end of the agrarian year, will be held on the grounds of historic St. Martin’s Church on Friday, Nov. 1. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. and features local foods from land and sea, wines and spirits and live music. Jazz musician Dave Hollister from Annapolis will entertain. The church will be open so visitors can see the progress being made in the continuing preservation and restoration both on the interior and exterior of the building. The Worcester County Garden Club will decorate the church in the style of the period. Construction on the brick building was begun in 1756 and finished in 1763. The brick exterior still appears today much as it did when construction was completed. Records from 1703 indicate there was an earlier frame building, a chapel of ease, at this location. St. Martin’s Church is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. During October tickets are being sold for a sterling silver and black diamond pendant called “The Key to St. Martin’s”, an exact replica of the key to St. Martin’s Church. The winning raffle ticket will be drawn on Nov. 1 at the festival. The pendant was designed by Sherrie Beckstead, president of the Board of Directors of the Historic St. Martin’s Church Foundation, and cast by master goldsmith, Steven Clarke. Only 150 raffle tickets will be sold. The cost is $50.

the fundraiser, which he said has a second purpose of broadening exposure of the symphony beyond its current core of music lovers in the area surrounding the Community Church in Ocean Pines. “Basically it is oriented towards enhancing Ocean City as a local cultural center,” he said. “By combining our event with the Art League, we hope to accomplish that and to a certain extent, we already have,” he said. The fundraiser comes on the heels of the symphony’s 17th season premiere performance before a sold out audience in Ocean Pines on Oct. 13, which was also coordinated by Stevens. French violinist Arnaud Sussmann was the featured guest musician in the symphony’s performance of music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Music Director Julien Benichou and Concertmaster Nicholas Currie then led the symphony in a performance of Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major, 944. Rina Thaler, executive director of the Art League of Ocean City, also said in an Oct. 22 interview, “Nothing like this has ever been done in Ocean City before” and described the event as an effort to help the town expand its artistic base. The Art League will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary that evening at its newly opened 94th Street location. Thaler said representatives of the Art Continued from Page 9B

Presidential couplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life stories presented at OC Jamboree Morning, afternoon and evening shows featured Oct. 29 through Nov. 2

(Oct. 25, 2013) In what will be the most unique historical-theatrical event ever in American history, 68 historical figures will leap from the history books onto the stage at the OC Jamboree Theater in Ocean City for five days. Tuesday, Oct. 29, through Saturday, Nov. 2, the event will take place with one purpose in mind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help raise funds for the nationally recognized Wounded Warrior Project. Adding to the uniqueness of this occasion, is the fact that all 68 characters will be portrayed by only two performers and the researching, writing, and costuming have been done

by the same two people. This all round creative couple is William and Sue Wills, founders and authors of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speakingâ&#x20AC;?, which has been touring the nation for the past 17 years. Before this endeavor, the couple operated the Parker Playhouse Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theater and Parker Productions in Ocean City for 20 seasons from 1978-1997. The five days will consist of a morning, afternoon, and evening session each day, at which time one, two or three Presidential couplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life stories will be presented. Tuesday, Oct. 29, can be called Founding Fathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day as the words, thoughts and deeds of Washington, Adams, Madison (no Jefferson-his wife was not a First Lady), Monroe and their wives fill the stage in the morning and af-

The evening is rounded out by the story of John Quincy Adams who served his country from age 14-81, a brief look at the marriage of Andrew and Rachel Jackson, and finally a chance to meet the performers. Wednesday is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The forgotten oneterm Presidentsâ&#x20AC;? as from 1836-1860 no one was reelected as the slavery issue and even the Mexican War divided the country. In the evening youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;l learn about the most unique presidential ticket in our history: Republican Lincoln running with Democrat Andrew Johnson. Thursday begins 40 years of military heroes as our leaders have for only one man, Grover Cleveland, did not serve in the military, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Harrison, and Theodore Roosevelt fall into this category. The final show of the day, William Howard Taft is the only

man to be not only President, but also Chief Justice of the United States. Friday tells the story of the first 50 years of the 20th century of America through Wilson, FDR and Truman save the world from tyranny of oppression, Hoover saves Europe from starvation, and Harding and Coolidge try to bring about worldwide disarmament. Finally, Saturday guides us through the second half on the 20th century as Eisenhower fights â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cold Warâ&#x20AC;? Kennedy faces down the Russians in the Cuban Missile Crises, Johnson initiates The Great Society. Nixon resigns after winning reelection in one of the greatest landslides in history and Jerry Ford restores calm after the Watergate scandals. Standing beside these men are a diSee FIVE on Page 13B

William and Sue Wills pictured as the Washingtons, Lincolns, Roosevelts and Trumans, are just four of the 33 Presidential couples they will portray at the OC Jamboree Theater Oct. 29 through Nov. 2 to raise funds for The Wounded Warrior Project.

Five days of shows benefit Wounded Warriors Project verse group of women-some outspoken, but most stood in the back ground: some well- educated, but some with no education at all: some who wanted to be First Lady,, but most who had the position thrust upon them. As couples, they shared the same triumphs and heartaches that couples of today are challenged by. This is the journey through history you will take if you join us for this one of a kind event. There will be an all event ticket available for $150, daily tickets for $40 and finally individual session tickets of $20 for most sessions with the exception of $15 for the Wilson and Eisenhower sessions and $25 for Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, and the Saturday night finale. A special non- profit organization, Presidents Project, Inc., has been created and all profits will flow to the Wounded Warrior Project. Except for travel expenses and lodging, the Wills will receive no compensation for their almost 25 hours on stage over the five days.

Ocean City’s annual fall Restaurant Week wraps up Sunday Approximately 20 resort eateries feature special dishes during promotion CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) Ocean City restaurants will offer their final weekend of off-menu dishes at discounted prices through Sunday in honor of Restaurant Week. Around 20 restaurants are offering menus designed specifically for the

special at fixed prices of $10, $20, $30 or $40, from casual to fine dining. “It is a great way to support dining locally,” Executive Director of the Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association Susan Jones said. While the specials help bring diners into all participating restaurants during the resort’s shoulder season, the eateries that see the biggest boost in business are those with the most creative Restaurant Week menus, she said. Executive Chef at Horizon’s Oceanfront Restaurant at the Clarion Resort Hotel Shawn Reese incorporates sea-

sonal ingredients into his menu, which includes dishes like creamy butternut crab soup and fall chop salad. Gallaxy 66 Bar & Grille is introducing its new menu for the season during the special, Executive Chef Jason Myers said. Diners can choose from appetizers like curry chicken tempura and baked oysters du jour with a different topping each day and main dishes including pan seared duck breast, blackened salmon and herb roasted tilapia. Restaurant Week “certainly helps create business in the fall because peo-

ple like to know what they’re getting when they go out,” Jones said. “It just reminds people to go out and eat.” Alcohol, tax and gratuity are not included in Restaurant Week’s fixed menu prices. Participating restaurants will still have their regular, full-price menus available for those who don’t want to order from the special menu. For a list of participating restaurants and their menus and prices, visit www.oceancityrestaurantweek.com. Go to the Facebook page www.facebook.com/OCMDRestaurantWeek for updates on Restaurant Week.

Ami Reist, Little Miss Lovely, sells her garlands, floral arrangements and other holiday arrangements at the Ocean Pines Farmers Market in White Horse Park.

Floral designer creating loveliness Ami Reist, Little Miss Lovely, says greatest joy seeing brides’ reactions NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer

(Oct. 25, 2013) An interest in crafts and flowers led to a full-time business this year for Ocean Pines resident Ami Reist. She created a how-to craft blog in 2010 and in January, she started concentrating on floristry. In May, her labor of love became her full-time occupation, and she is now known as Little Miss Lovely. “It transitioned into a business,” Reist said Saturday at the Ocean Pines Farmers Market where she was selling her floral arrangements in Mason jars, swags, holiday centerpieces and wreaths. “I love being outside, I love working with beautiful flowers and I love knowing people appreciate flowers and their beauty,” she said. “It’s rewarding.” She describes her design philosophy as earthy, romantic and unconventional. She also says it is marked by bright colors, extreme craftiness and unlikely pairings. Reist, 27, came by her interest and tal-

ent quite naturally because her grandmother was a hobby florist and her mother was president of a flower club in Delaware City, Pa., for many years. “I think they passed it on to me,” she said. She added to her know-how by taking classes at Wor-Wic Community College, which she completed in January, and by serving an apprenticeship in central Pennsylvania. Originally from Hershey, Pa., she moved to Ocean Pines full time in 2009, because she likes the beach and because her parents have a vacation home in the community. She worked with Internet and marketing companies until launching her own creative floral and event design business. Her services also include window displays and photo shoot styling. Working out of her home, she finds customers, and customers find her, at the Ocean Pines Farmers Market, which will be open in White Horse Park year around, by using Facebook and other social media, and by recommendations of friends and customers. She likes to use Mason jars for her floral arrangements, which she sells for just $10 each at the Farmers Market. “They are very kitschy right now,” she

said of the Mason jars. “It’s a trend now and they’re inexpensive.” She also likes the recycling aspect of using Mason jars and deducts $1 from the price of a customer’s next order if he or she returns the Mason jar. Reist has made multiple floral pieces, including corsages and headwear for proms and homecomings and was chosen to decorate the waterfront home of Jim and Jan Perdue for the cocktail party held recently to kick off the fundraising home tour of the Art League of Ocean City. She also decorated the home of Bill and Susan Mariner for that tour and will be providing floral beauty at the Atlantic Hotel in Berlin for Holiday Gala for Homes, a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser Nov. 16. On Nov. 8, she will be the featured artist at Baked Dessert Café and Gallery in Berlin for the town’s Second Friday Art Stroll. She will be teaching “do-it-yourself” projects throughout the evening in addition to selling her floral arrangements and wreaths. She focuses, however, on weddings. Her greatest joy, she said, is making the floral arrangements and other pieces that the bride has described to her for weeks and “then delivering them and seeing her face when she holds her bouquet for the See LATEST on Page 2C

(Oct. 25, 2013) We may be breathing a sigh of relief that Congress came to an agreement before defaulting on the nation’s federal debt, but we all also know the reprieve is somewhat short-lived. Last week’s agreement re-opened the federal government and allowed the US to stay under the debt limit until Feb. 7, 2014. However, prior to this agreement, the National Association of Realtors appeared before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs to stress that defaulting could be disastrous for the U.S. economy and catastrophic for the housing recovery. As explained in a press release issued last week, NAR President Gary Thomas called on Congress to raise the debt limit in a timely manner to avoid the consequences of a severe and drawn-out recession that would rapidly erase recent gains in the still young housing recovery. “A default would be devastating for homeowners whose largest asset would lose value and equity, for home buyers who would see dramatic increases in interest rates and tighter credit standards, and for entire communities that are still grappling from the impact of the financial meltdown,” said Thomas, broker-owner of Evergreen Realty, in Villa Park, Ca. “As the leading advocate for housing issues, NAR is committed to protecting the value of homeownership from the avoidable and substantial harm that would be inflicted by Congress’s inaction to avert a default.” Thomas said that even a 1 percent increase in mortgage rates could lead to 450,000 fewer home sales and price many middle-class Americans out of the housing market. For a borrower earning $60,000 and taking out a $200,000 mortgage, a 1 percentage point increase in interest rates would raise their monthly mortgage payment by 10 percent, a difference that could be costly to buyers and potentially disqualify them from many lending programs. During his testimony, Thomas pointed to the significant financial market disruptions resulting from the debt ceiling impasse in 2011, which reduced consumer and business confidence and led to slower See CONGRESS on Page 2C

All ends well for 66th Street Skye Bar, owners and neighbors Rooftop restaurant and nightspot regains some entertainment privileges NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) The owners of the Skye Bar in Ocean City regained some entertainment privileges last week. They had impressed the board in charge of their liquor license because they went to great lengths and spent a considerable sum of money to soundproof their 66th Street rooftop restaurant and nightspot. Roger Cebula and Tammi Patrick-Cebula were trying to overcome objections of neighboring residents and property who had said they were greatly disturbed

in 4 5 . t R

by loud music and screams coming from the Skye Bar, which is the rooftop of the Galaxy 66 restaurant and bar. During the May 15 meeting of the Board of License Commissioners, several neighbors said they were disturbed not just by the sound of loud music, but by patrons “hooping and hollering” as nearby resident John Robins, an attorney representing several other residents and property owners, said. The board fined the Cebulas $1,000 for each of five documented noise violations and ordered them to cease entertainment by 8:30 p.m. During the board’s Sept. 18 meeting, Robins said he and others feared noise from the 66th Street business would be bothersome even though the owners had installed soundproofing glass panels during the past few weeks. The panels do not enclose the entire area and the owners intended to continue to serve dinner in the non-enclosed area. Furthermore, a panel must be open when the server enters or leaves that area to serve the diners and neighbors anticipated that noise would be heard. On behalf of owners Tammy Patrick-Cebula and Roger Cebula, attorney Mark Cropper told the board during that September discussion that they wanted “to slightly modify” the restrictions placed on their liquor license after the complaints about noise because they had modified the business by installed the soundproofing panels.

The board continued the discussion until they could visit the Skye Bar for themselves, which they did Sept. 23, accompanied by the Cebulas, Cropper, Robins, board attorney Thomas Coates and others. During the visit, the volume of the music inside the Skye Bar was turned up to its maximum level. While standing outside the soundproofing panels, board members and the others could hear no music. Cropper appreciated the board’s factfinding mission. In his 24 years of representing clients before the board, he could not “recall the board taking such measures in fairness to an applicant.” Before the enlarged Skye Bar opened last year, the board granted permission to the Cebulas to have outside entertainment, including a deejay, but what they planned and what the board was expecting were not the same. William E. Esham Jr., chairman of the Board of License Commissioners, said he did not realize the Skye Bar was going to be a nightclub. During the Oct. 15 meeting, Esham said he and the board’s other two members, do not “have the luxury of having our feelings dictate our actions.” They are charged by law, he said, to protect the neighborhood, but the Cebulas had taken steps to remedy the situation. Even Robins, the 65th Street resident and attorney who represented about 35 people opposed to the Skye Bar’s

request for additional entertainment privileges, was appeased. Robins told the board that he and others believe the soundproofing glass panels would contain the noise to the interior of the Skye Bar if no DJ or live band is there. The board will no longer permit either of those. The board, however, is permitting the Cebulas to have background dinner music in the Skye Bar until 11 p.m. They may also operate televisions in the Skye Bar through the amplifier system until 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights so they may show broadcasts of See CEBULAS on Page 3C

Alcohol license board seeking info on proposed improvements NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Oct. 25, 2013) Owners of the Kaddy Mart in Snow Hill were told last week to provide plans of their proposed improvements to the Board of License Commissioners before their application for a beer and wine license can be considered. Tenants Nazish Ali and Muhammad Waseem of Federalsburg intend to renovate the store’s interior, improve its exterior and parking area, and install outside lighting and a sidewalk. The board, during its Oct. 16 hearing, asked for those plans to be presented during its Nov. 20 meeting. In addition, Raymond Ayers, the resident agent for the alcoholic beverage license, failed to obtain all of the required signatures on the application. He was

apparently unaware that the law required him to obtain all of the signatures in person, so he must fulfill that obligation because the application for a beer and wine license may be considered. Attorney Brian Pete Cosby said it was not an easy application because the site has had problems with loitering. In these hard economic times, however, the applicants need a license to sell beer and wine to be successful at the business, he said. Alcohol, Cosby said, is a necessary component to the store’s success and the south end of Market Street, where the Kaddy Mart is located, needs it, he said. “Give this place a chance,” Cosby said. “Get the blight out of the neighborhood.” Some neighborhood residents said many in the area lack transportation and

football games, including the Super Bowl. Lastly, they may use party headphones in the enclosed area until closing time. The glass panels to the outside area must be closed at 8:30 p.m., although

Accepting a check from Steve Ladd, COO of Ocean Petroleum, center, are Kathy Phillips, executive director of Assateague Coastal Trust and Coastkeeper and Steve Farr, development director of Assateague Coastal Trust, left. “This generous donation from Ocean Petroleum and BP’s Fueling Communities Fund will help to fund ACT’s 2014 Recreational Water Quality Monitoring Program, a project conducted by the Assateague COASTKEEPER, that monitors the safe swimming levels of bacteria in the water at our favorite swimming beaches and swimming holes,” Phillips said. “Weekly results during the summer months are posted on The Swim Guide, a Web site and smartphone app that lets people see that their local swimming beaches are safe for swimming.”
