NEW MAJORITY City reverses council power structure in landslide vote; turnout likely double that of municipal election in 2010

2012 MUNICIPAL ELECTION ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

Many, such as the campaigner above, endorsed all five of Tuesday’s winners as an opposition bloc to the former council majority. Of that majority, councilmen Joe Hall and Jim Hall, seen below right, were both up for re-election and were defeated. Above right, former City Manager and new Councilman Dennis Dare speaks on his cell phone minutes after his victory.

(Nov. 9, 2012) In a massive reversal of the last two years of Ocean City politics, the four candidates of the city’s de-facto opposition bloc have claimed all of the available council seats, securing the positions of two incumbents as well as ousting two of their bitter rivals. Council members Mary Knight and Doug Cymek succeeded in their reelection bids on Tuesday, while fellow incumbents Joe Hall and Council President Jim Hall were unseated by Dennis Dare and Joe Mitrecic. In Ocean City’s first municipal election held in tandem with the national elections, final numbers saw at least

twice as many votes cast than in previous elections. Dare was most favored with 1,952 votes, followed by Knight with 1,853; Mitrecic with 1,778; Cymek with 1,680; OC Mayor Jim Hall with 929; Rick Meehan Bob Baker with 842; Joe Hall with 806; Sean Rox with 533; John Adkins with 314; and Philip Sayan with 304. For the first time in several years, the city also had a contested mayor’s race, although incumbent Rick Meehan easily defeated newcomer Nick Campagnoli with 2,238 votes to 629. To put the size of Tuesday’s turnout in perspective, Meehan also was the top vote getter in 2010 with 954 votes, when just 22 percent of the electorate, 1,458 voters, went to the polls. The combined vote in this year’s mayor’s race alone was 2,867, or nearly double the total number of ballots cast in the See KNIGHT on Page 18 OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Labeled donations in Ocean Pines are ready to be taken to an as yet undetermined destination.

Donations from one coastal area benefit others hit by hurricane NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Ocean City area residents continued efforts this week to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. Truckloads and carloads of supplies and clothes were taken to Cr-

isfield, the most heavily damaged municipality in the state. Volunteers with “Sandy Clean Up Help” sought donations and people responded by donating clothes and other items that nearly overwhelmed drop-off sites. At South Moon Under in Ocean City, bags of donations, primarily

clothing, lined the perimeter of the store. At The Globe in Berlin, donations filled the upstairs area. Donations at both sites were picked up Tuesday. The volunteer group, organized by Ocean City Beach Patrol veteran Colby Nelson, is also providing help of a different sort. The

Noise Board gets bigger stick after difficult summer rental season Fines boosted to $1,000; permits will be rejected if no rental agent provided ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) After what was described as a particularly tumultuous summer in terms of rental housing disturbances, the City Council has given the go-ahead to a series of revisions that will tighten the town’s noise code and give more hitting power to its regulatory body, the Noise Board. Board Chairman Brett Wolf appeared before the council Monday to propose changes that would “provide the Noise Board with the mechanisms necessary to do our job.” The idea of the board, as per the city’s charter, is to “ensure that only those owners of real property situated within the corporate limits of the town, who exercise due diligence in controlling noise on or emanating from their property, shall be permitted to use their property to provide temporary shelter to the town’s transient population and temporary residents.” For practical purposes, this means that the board has the ability to issue and not issue rental permits to housing units that are to be used for tenants of under one year’s duration. This permit comes with a serial number that can be used by the board and the Ocean City Police De-

partment to track and evaluate noise issues from any given property. The board has the power to call before it problem permit holders, in order to work out means of noise mitigation. It also has the power to levy fines, in cases where landlords have been deemed inadequate in correcting noise problems despite multiple reports from police. Wolf’s first difficulty with the board’s ability was that owners were still difficult to contact, despite the institution of physical permit stickers that owners affix to the doors of units for police reference. “What we’ve found, continuously over the years, is that when people come to the noise board, their complaint is that they weren’t notified in a timely manner and couldn’t’ address the problem properly,” Wolf said. “The stickers were supposed to solve that, via the police … but what we found was that property owners were not providing emergency contact info and complaints were still being issued [without anywhere to send them to].” The city’s rental permit applications require that property owners who do not live in Ocean City provide a “rental agent” whom the police can contact to assist with any problems in the short term. Apparently, many applicants were not providing this contact, but their permits were still being processed by city staffers who did not realize the importance of the information. “Therein lies the issue,” said City Manager David Recor. “We have not been

uniformly requiring the residential agent. We’ve been taking the check without the residential agent … I think we simply need to enforce the code the way it is written and not accept the application if it’s not complete.” Wolf also suggested that the term “residential agent” be changed to “emergency contact” to convey more clearly the purpose of the information. “We don’t want people to go out an think that they have to hire a Realtor,” Councilman Joe Hall said. Mayor Rick Meehan also requested that the permit forms have “required” noted next to the residential agent/emergency contact line, and – if the city moves to an online permit – set the system up so applications will not be sent unless the field is filled. Wolf also requested an expansion of the board’s ability to fine, which is currently set at $400 per infraction. He believed that a fine of $1,000 be allowed, as well as an additional $1,000 fine for those property owners who do not appear for a board hearing after two or more noise incidents. Additionally, Wolf asked that the board be allowed to levy a $2,500 fine for non-compliance after three incidents. The last element of the request could not be done, City Solicitor Guy Ayres said, since state law regulates the power of municipalities to fine, and sets a cap of $1,000. But Wolf still believed that the possibility of multiple $1,000 fines would still

be sufficient, noting that the board very rarely resorted to punitive measures. The board levied its first fine, that Wolf was aware of, this summer on a particularly difficult property. “It appears that we failed to maintain the peace and quiet with respect to this particular property,” Wolf said. “Usually, we don’t get to this point. The fine was levied after the third incident.” Councilman Joe Hall was initially reluctant to boost the fines, since they had so rarely been used. “We haven’t really been giving the existing fine a chance to work … it’s an enforcement issue and a use issue, not an amount issue,” Hall said. “We’re not using the tool we have, but we’re still buying a bigger tool.” But Wolf countered that having the threat of a large fine was more desirable than the threat of pulling an owner’s license, which the board did not want to have to do. “You lose the ability to house summer residents that the community needs,” Wolf said. “The situation isn’t one of taking the license to prove a point.” “We need a big stick to make this work, and $1,000 is a pretty big stick,” said Council Secretary Lloyd Martin. “I’ll go with the increase, but if you don’t use it, it won’t work,” reiterated Hall. Wolf said that the board was not looking to levy a fine – or multiple fines – against the majority of offenders, particSee LANDLORDS on Page 4

Landlords ‘work the system’ with board hearings Continued from Page 3

ularly those who own a small number of properties that are not for any enterprise purpose. “People that own multiple buildings or buildings with multiple units [are the issue],� Wolff said. He also noted that the industry of temporary housing was becoming more complex, often to its detriment. “Property owners have started to sublease their properties,� Wolff said. “Someone offers $50,000 for a summer. [The owners] take their $50 grand, wash their hands of it, and that person who paid the $50,000 goes and contacts an international student agency and pack it full.� Owners, Wolf said, subsequently deny responsibility for the property and only move to resolve noise issues after the summer is over. The additional $1,000 for non-response hopes to solve this. “This is for those that ignore the certified letter [requesting they appear before the board],� Meehan agreed, “because they know their tenant is going to be gone. That’s something you need, because they’re absolutely working the system. [The problem] stretches out to the end of the summer and then nothing can be done.�

Ocean City may soon be buying back own taxi rights ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Much like the Federal Reserve Bank, the town of Ocean City may soon be buying back its own product in order to keep prices relevant. But in the case of the resort, the product is not money itself, but the rights to operate taxi cabs, a practice that has been occurring for decades in many much larger cities around the country. On Monday night, City Clerk Kelly Allmond requested the approval of the sale of two taxi medallions by one city taxi owner to another. The sale price was $3,000 apiece, for a total of $6,000. The city levies a 25 percent tax on all medallion transfers, meaning it took in $1,500 from the deal. The medallion system in the resort was introduced in early 2010, in an attempt to control the proliferation of scantily regulated taxi operations on the island. Possessing a medallion gives one the right to operate a cab, but it also comes with both a financial cost and certain restrictions – most notably, cabbies being subjected to random drug testing. When first implemented, the city sold 175 medallions for $1,500 apiece, through an initial lottery system, although five of those sales were rejected due to non-compliance. City officials expected that medallion prices would rise as market demand grew for the 170 active medallions, cre-

ating a steady revenue stream for the city, while also limiting the number of cabs on the street. The same theory was introduced in New York City in 1937, and has grown over the past 75 years to a remarkable scope. The city currently has 13,237 medallions in circulation; and despite the seeming overabundance of taxicabs in Manhattan, the demand for service continues to far exceed supply, driving medallion prices in the last year well over $1 million dollars. The system, unfortunately, has created an almost-feudal structure in the Big Apple, whereby very few small cab operators have the capital available to buy medallions, and thus lease them from medallion-holding investors. This cost severely slices into cabbie’s profit margins. According to Slate.com, studies reveal that the average driver owes

$130 to his medallion’s landlord as soon as he begins his 12-hour shift. “You can’t compare New York to here, really,� said Wally Saleh, the seller of the two most recent medallions. “I think the town has handled the taxi medallions really well. I think it’s set up the right way.� For the cabbies, yes, but from the city’s perspective, it appears that it has been unable to create a market competitive enough to drive consistent price increases, likely due to the seasonal profitability of taxi services. Addressing that situation on Monday, Mayor Rick Meehan said, “$3,000 “is below what they have been.� The town maintains the first right of purchase on any medallion sales, meaning sellers must sell to the city if it matches their price. “A future council should consider that if they’re going that cheap, maybe there are too many out on the street and there should be some we should put back in the vault,� Councilman Joe Hall suggested. The council has already tried to buoy the price of medallions by putting a $500 minimum on the transfer tax, meaning that cabbies are essentially submitting to a voluntary tax increase if they try to sell their driving rights for less than $2,000. “If we exercise our first right, we may be able to sell these back for the right price,� Meehan agreed.

City’s sources of small income cause big headaches for Public Works Baltimore Avenue banner program deemed unsafe ZACVK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Following the cancellation of last week’s work session due to Hurricane Sandy, the City Council moved at its regular session this past Monday to approve a bevy of Public Works issues that highlighted the continuing struggle of the town to find new revenue streams while keeping overhead low. Most notably, Public Works Director Hal Adkins disclosed that he had discovered – essentially by accident – that a city program in place since the early 1990s was actually not permitted and considered to be highly dangerous. Until this week, the city has sold banner space to those who are holding events in the resort and wish to advertise. Such banners are erected by Public Works employees on cables that cross over the street via telephone and electrical poles. “You’re speaking with the guy who picked out the locations way back when,” Adkins said. The majority of locations are along Baltimore Avenue, below 15th

Street, although there is one on the Route 90 bridge for travelers entering town. “It was a very informal process at the time,” Adkins said. Recently, Adkins began to shop around for a new banner location, after a homeowner near the former banner location at 11th Street complained that wind noise and vibration was causing an undue disturbance for his family. But when he approached Delmarva Power and Light about the new site, he was informed that the city’s electric provider was apparently unaware that the banners spanned the street, a practice that DP&L has disallowed for several years. “When I approached Delmarva, I was informed that current safety policies essentially make those banners illegal,” Adkins said. “Based on some serious problems we’ve experienced, we no longer allow this practice,” Delmarva Power representative Jim Smith wrote in an email to Adkins. “I believe the breaking point came several years ago in another town when wind got into a banner that spanned across a street. The banner wrapped into the primary, causing a fire, damage, blown fuses and an outage. At that point, it was deemed that the practice had severe safety impli-

cations and now we do not allow it.” Subsequently, Adkins told council, it was his recommendation “that the banner project on Baltimore Avenue cease immediately.” In a similar vein, Adkins also highlighted two other small streams of revenue for the city that had also created logistical difficulties. The District Court building, which is part of the city’s Public Safety complex on 65th Street, has a serious roof leak where the court roof meets the city’s police headquarters. Adkins said it will soon affect the carpeting, drywall, and has will create possible mold issues. Since the city leases the building to the court, it is obligated as a landlord to fix structural issues. The roof work will cost $36,000. Adkins also recommended that the city extend its contract with Direct Media for

the design of advertising on the city’s buses. An error in the bid specification for the new contract has meant that a new specification has to be prepared and approved by the Maryland Transportation Authority, which subsidizes the city’s public transit system and partners with it in its operation. “When you realize how long it’s going to take to get that concurrence on the new contract [with the MTA], and that you’re required by the MTA to advertise for 30 days … take my word, at this point we will be lucky to have another vendor by early spring,” Adkins said. This would leave too little prep time for the lucrative summer advertising season, Adkins said. “It is my recommendation to issue another amendment at this time to extend the current contract through the upcoming summer,” he said.

New Ocean Pines Yacht Club gets planning commission approval NANCY POWELL â&#x2013;  Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) A building permit is expected to be issued for the new Ocean Pines Yacht Club within the next 30 days and construction is expected to begin within the next two months. The progress is being made because the Worcester County Planning Commission approved the site plan for the Yacht Club during its Nov. 1 meeting. Removable potted plants helped persuade the Planning Commission to approve that site plan.

Such plants are preferable because the clay pots could be moved inside in case of an approaching storm, Ocean Pines General Manager Bob Thompson told the Planning Commission during its Nov. 1 meeting. If plants were in the ground, some of the dirt would be washed away. They will also be used to delineate the outside dining area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plantings will make it a lot more attractive,â&#x20AC;? commission member Costen Gladding said. Gladding suggested azalea bushes and said they would give â&#x20AC;&#x153;body. It needs some pizzazz and something. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying you have to dig a hole and plant.â&#x20AC;?

!UTHORITY*OHN3TALEY 4REASURER &RIENDSOF$ENNIS$ARE

Having moveable potted plants suited Gladding just fine. Representing Ocean Pines, attorney Joe Moore said whatever number of potted plants the commission considered to be reasonable would be placed outside the building. The commission granted a waiver for planted vegetation, for a sidewalk and for lighting. A sidewalk is not wanted because it would have a dead-end and because access is available by a dock. Lights along Mumfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing Road are not wanted because there are no lit sidewalks in Ocean Pines. For the most part, Ocean Pines is wooded and dark. Joint-use parking had been an issue during the Planning Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oct. 4 meeting when five of the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members voted against the site plan as presented that day. That site plan had 62 too

few parking spaces even though Yacht Club customers would be able to park at the Yacht Club or at Mumfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing pool. Thompson sought a 20 percent reduction in the number of parking spaces. During an Oct. 9 hearing, Ed Tudor, director of the Department of Development Review and Permitting, granted a reduction in the required number of parking spaces after several were made slightly narrower. Modifying the width of some spaces and the conversion of two trailer parking spaces to four parallel spaces resulted in a reduction of the special exception request form 20 percent to 10.9 percent, which Tudor granted. Residents of Osprey Point condominiums do not object to the new 20,303square-foot Yacht Club.

Horse stable to be constructed on Beauchamp Road property NANCY POWELL â&#x2013;  Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Building a horse stable on private property for personal use turned out to be more complicated than expected for a Beauchamp Road family. Blair Snyder wanted to build a barn on his 42 acres of property near Ocean Pines to use as a horse stable because his daughter likes riding horses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a barn for the Snyders and their horses,â&#x20AC;? attorney Mark Cropper told the Worcester County Planning Commission on behalf of the family during the Nov. 1 meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not intended as a commercial structure.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;best of intentionsâ&#x20AC;? turned out to have the â&#x20AC;&#x153;worst of consequences,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. Because the barn is for private and recreational use, the Planning Commission granted a waiver to the requirement that it must have an automatic irrigation system. The project was considered commercial, Cropper said, because the owner was honest and said a friend might want to

board a horse there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now, because it could be commercial, it just snowballed unnecessarily,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. Cropper had already handled the case when it went before the Board of Zoning Appeals, which granted a special exception for the stable to be built in a residential zone. Before that, the Worcester County Commissioners had voted last April to approve a bill that would enable the Board of Zoning Appeals to consider requests for horse stables in a residential district. The bill permitted stables for three or more animals as a special exception on at least 10 acres. There must be at least one acre of lot area for each animal stabled and the stables must be located at least 200 feet from any public road right-of-way. The 10-acre minimum lot requirement is not eligible for appeal to the Board of Zoning Appeals for a variance. During that meeting of the Worcester County Commissioners, Snyder said he would like to have 24 horses because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;would help defray the cost of what we like to do.â&#x20AC;? He also said the horse stables would be a benefit to the community.

Permitting that said the project had been discussed with Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a result, we are totally supportive of the proposed redevelopment and are satisfied that our primary issues have been addressed and will be resolved in a satisfactory manner,â&#x20AC;? Ford wrote. Those issues were lighting, privacy, drainage and safety. Ford wrote that the proposed lighting, its type and direction, would not adversely affect residents and they believe the proposed fencing, plantings and a gate would clearly separate the two properties. The current drainage system is sufficient to manage runoff from additional asphalt in the extended parking area and residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety is not compromised because of the relocation of the entrance to and exit from the new Yacht Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking area, which will be enlarged. Ford also wrote that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cooperative spiritâ&#x20AC;? between Osprey Point and the Ocean Pines Association will continue, as association members will remain in contact with the OPA through meetings, telephone conversations and correspondence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Therefore, we are assured that the redevelopment of the Yacht Club will be a positive event within our community,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Reversal from Gloria: bayside boards take brunt of hurricane ZACK HOOPES â&#x2013;  Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Half the glamour, twice the damage. As the cleanup from Hurricane Sandy winds down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least on the municipal front â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is clear that the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s western bayside took the brunt of the hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The major damage that we got from a public facilities standpoint would be the boardwalk on Chicago Avenue,â&#x20AC;? said City Engineer Terry McGean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, it lifted up and shifted four or five feet, broke apart the railing and washed it out [into the bay].â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the lights are either leaning significantly or have fallen over. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically going to have to be completely redone.â&#x20AC;? Running south along the bay from Fourth Street, the boarded promenade on Chicago Avenue provides a popular space for fishing, crabbing, and casual sightseeing. It continues for roughly three blocks, snaking behind the Delmarva Power substation on 2nd Street and ending at De Lazy Lizard Bar & Grill. Ocean City Parks and Recreation Director Tom Shuster said that Absolute Demolition will be removing the wreckage from the site and that plans to rebuild are already in the works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working with Terry to come up with a design and bid specification for the rebuild of the entire walk in that location,â&#x20AC;? Shuster said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to do an inspection of the bulkhead thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there for safetyâ&#x20AC;Ś

Seen right after the height of the storm, Sandyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tides lifted the section of boardwalk south of Fourth Street off its foundation, overturning benches and skewing light poles.

but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our intention to replace it completely.â&#x20AC;? While the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oceanside is typically associated with a greater risk of weather damage, this usually assumes that high winds and rough surf from the ocean will be the causet of destruction, as was seen in Hurricane Gloria, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last major weather event in 1985 ,that essentially destroyed the Boardwalk Sandy was a different storm, however. While she brought little in the way of wind, Sandy combined with the lunar cycle and al-

ready-existing low-pressure systems to create a remarkably high tide. Given that the town drains towards the bay, it was that side that saw tidal surges flowing back up out of the storm drains and flooding the streets before Sandyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rainy weather had even hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The bayside] definitely took the worst. The island basically slopes from east to west, so the lowest portion is actually the bayside,â&#x20AC;? McGean said. The chance to rebuild the bayside walk, however, may provide an opportunity to review the future of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two blocks of

public space between Third and Fourth Streets west of Philadelphia Avenue, which currently house sports fields and the Ocean Bowl skate park. Shuster said the area â&#x20AC;&#x153;has an underlying master plan for redevelopmentâ&#x20AC;? that would see a more unified, full-featured park built. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look at that western end of the park plan and make sure that any plan [to rebuild the boardwalk] would be consistent with the final concept of how we want the park to look,â&#x20AC;? Shuster said. The current stretch of boardwalk, Shuster said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is intended to be one of the legs of the Bayside Boardwalk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the long term hope to have a boardwalk along the bayside down possibly to the inlet.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The park plan includes the boardwalk and the pathway leading into the park,â&#x20AC;? Shuster added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it also includes removing the street between Third and Fourth to make that more of a promenade and less of a through area.â&#x20AC;? Private property was also not immune to the tideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to float otherwise-secure structures. While McGean is responsible for the integrity of public property, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building inspectors have also been out examining private structures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look at all the public facilities, and Kevin [Chief Building Inspector Kevin Brown] and the inspectors look at all the private facilities,â&#x20AC;? McGean said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been two [private buildings] that were posted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no occupancy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In both cases, I know it was an issue

The Huey Memorial helicopter, on display at the Ocean City Municipal Airport, suffered some damage during Hurricane Sandy.

Huey Memorial helicopter suffers damage (Nov. 9, 2012) Hurricane Sandy, with her 60-knot winds, delivered quite a blow to the Huey Memorial helicopter, on display at the Ocean City Municipal Airport off Route 611 in West Ocean City. She popped the retaining cables off the rotors, and moved the collective control, causing one rotor (far rotor) to alter its angle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have happened at a worse time,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Oneto, president of the Ocean City Aviation Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reattaching of the cables is not a difficult job, but requires using equipment that can raise a worker 18-20 feet to reattach them

to the rotors. The collective can be repaired with in-house talent, some sheet metal and a little welding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More and more people are enjoying the memorial,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we want to restore it to its original condition as soon as possible.â&#x20AC;? OCAA has been able to meet its obligations for the restoration of the Huey, but the unexpected has happened, and the Association is turning to the public for some help.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CHRISTINE BROWN

Flooding was significant in Snow Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Byrd Park during the height of the storm last week, although the county sustained limited damage.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CHRISTINE BROWN

Water encroached on some low-lying properties, such as this Snow Hill garage. A few homes in West Ocean City were said to have up to 18 inches of water.

(Nov. 9, 2012) Although no lives were lost in Worcester County during Hurricane Sandy, two men did put their lives at risk last Sunday by going out in a boat from West Ocean City to experience the storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did wash ashore,â&#x20AC;? Emergency Management Services Director Teresa Owens told the Worcester County Commissioners on Wednesday. The men went out in the boat to see storm conditions up close and personal, but they were unable to get back. The boat was swept ashore, with the men aboard, at Assateague Island, Owens said. Law enforcement personnel, alerted to the trouble by friends of the men, took the men back to the entrance of Snug Harbor where they lived. Some houses in West Ocean City had water inside because of Hurricane Sandy, three homeowners in South Point lost part of their property and water got into a fuel tank in Pocomoke. Some houses on Ayres Creek were also damaged, but overall the county was spared.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fared very well with Hurricane Sandy,â&#x20AC;? Owens said. Because the storm did little damage in Worcester County, county and municipal officials offered assistance to Somerset County and the hard-hit town of Crisfield last Thursday and Friday. County maintenance staff took blankets and mats to the Woodrow Wilson Community Center, where Crisfield residents were sheltered, Owens said. The Fire Marshalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office provide a trailer with showers for the shelter occupants and members of the Social Services Department helped man the shelter. Members of the Emergency Services Department helped make arrangements for food preparation and staff from the Department of Development Review and Permitting, two building inspectors and Phyliss Wimbrow, the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy director, went to Crisfield to assist with assessing the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s damaged structures. Fred Webster, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant director of Emergency Services, assisted the Somerset County Emergency Operations Center in Princess Anne. Owens also told the commissioners about Worcester Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preparedness and operational efforts. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Operations Center, activated at 8 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, was staffed with county, municipal and See WORCESTER on Page 13

where a mobile home had lifted off its foundation.” What still has a solid foundation, according to McGean, is the city’s sea wall and dune system, which were largely responsible for the lack of serious damage on the Boardwalk and oceanfront. The Army Corps of Engineers have finished surveying the coastline and McGean said they “found no damage.” “I know there is a dune that needs to be rebuilt,” McGean added, “but whether we’re just talking about trucking sand from one place to another or pumping it has yet to be determined.” The Army Corps of Engineers works with the city to maintain the strength of the beaches, including the Corps’ 1991 construction of the sea wall along the Boardwalk. The city, county, and federal government all contribute money to a fund that allows for the Corps to periodically fortify the beaches by dredging sand from the ocean back up onto the beach. The next scheduled replenishment is in 2014. Even the portion of the Boardwalk currently under reconstruction, around North Division Street, took no discernible damage from the storm, despite being partially dismantled when the waters started to rise. “There was no damage to any of the work that was in progress, nothing where we had to go back and fix anything that

we’d already done,” McGean said. “We basically just lost two days of work. We were back out working on Wednesday.” Mayor Rick Meehan noted later this week that he was impressed with the protection the strengthed beachline afforded the resort, compared to his experience in Gloria. “We had major damage during one, and none during the other,” Meehan said. “I think this is a great example of how beach replenishment really works.” “It’s the investment in the infrastructure that protected that Boardwalk,” said City Manager David Recor, who said he was impressed with the city’s resilience relative to other coastal areas in which he’s worked. “There’s a reason we survived the way we did.”

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Despite the damage, the city plans to rebuild the promenade on Chicago Avenue, as part of future hopes for a larger park between Third and Fourth Streets, as well as a longer boardwalk stretching along the bay to the inlet.

Aquarium staff excavate nest of loggerhead turtles before storm Surviving hatchlings will be released in spring 2013 when Atlantic heats up

This hatchling is one of two excavated along with 160 potentially viable eggs from a loggerhead sea turtle nest at Assateague Island National Seashore.

(Nov. 9, 2012) On Friday, Oct. 26, before the onset of high winds and waves from Hurricane Sandy, biological technicians and staff from the Marine Animal Rescue at the National Aquarium in Baltimore excavated a loggerhead sea turtle nest on the north end of Assateague Island National Seashore. The nest contained two live hatchlings and 160 potentially viable eggs, which had been incubating in the hot sand since the end of July. When sea turtle hatchlings emerge from the nest, they look for residual light in the night sky that are reflecting off the ocean. However, in areas where there is ample artificial light in the night sky, newly hatched turtles move toward that light source instead of the ocean. In preparation for the newly hatched loggerheads, Harrison’s Harbor Watch agreed to turn off the lights on their property that shine toward the north end of Assateague Island. “We know that many patrons go to Harrison’s Harbor Watch restaurant specifically for the beautiful night view of the inlet and the northern part of As-

We are blessed to have partners like Harrison’s Harbor Watch who are willing to go the extra mile for Assateague.” Although the loggerhead turtle nest was excavated just days before Hurricane Sandy came ashore, the nest excavation was already scheduled for that day. “At the end of each nest gestation,” Bill Hulslander, chief of Resources Management said, “we excavate the nest to collect data. Imagine how excited we were when we dug up the nest to count unhatched eggs and found live turtles. This is one of the first viable nests on the Maryland side of Assateague Island National Seashore.” The entire nest, including the live turtles, were carefully packed in sand and taken back to the National Aquarium in Baltimore, where they will continue to care for the hatchlings and incubate the nest. To date, one hatchling has died from a bacterial infection and the other hatchling is receiving antibiotics as a precaution. The remaining eggs will undergo ultrasound testing to determine if the turtles inside are still alive. The surviving hatchlings will be released from their natal sands in the spring of 2013 when ocean waters warm.

state personnel throughout the duration of Hurricane Sandy. Later that day, general public shelters opened at Stephen Decatur High School and Snow Hill High School. Pet-friendly shelters opened at Stephen Decatur Middle School, Snow Hill Animal Control and Pocomoke High School. Approximately 300 people and 46 pets stayed in the shelters, which closed when all the occupants returned home or found other places to stay by 1 p.m. Tuesday. Owens said several West Ocean City residents had been told that water would be in their homes, but they did not evacuate. When county employees went to some of those homes on Sunday, one foot of water was inside. Fred Webster, assistant director of Emergency Management, said a house on Riggin Ridge Road in West Ocean City had 16 to 18 inches of water inside. A Humvee was sent to rescue the women and two children inside. During the storm, the county received support from the Berlin Fire Company, the Ocean Pines Fire Company and the Ocean City Fire Department at Keyser Point Road. The county asked for and was granted a swift water rescue team that was assigned to the Ocean Pines Fire Department. That team was subsequently sent to Crisfield for the water rescue of occupants of Somers Cove Apartments. Although numerous trees and power lines were downed during the height of the storm, most county infrastructure had little or no significant damage. “Residents and businesses got a bird’s eye view of what could have happened by seeing damage along the coast,” Owens said. “I feel confident we did everything possible to alert people about the hurricane.” “It was a job well done,” said Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners. “Everyone worked ad a team and we were very lucky in the storm.”

State housing rehab applications being accepted in Berlin (Nov. 9, 2012) Representatives from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Single Family Special Loan Programs will be at Berlin Town Hall on Friday, Nov. 16, to meet with interested homeowners who suffered damage during the August 2012 storm event. The program provides low-interest loans to assist with rehabilitations to correct exterior and interior deficiencies. Loans are secured by a property lien and income limits do apply.

Union quashed for now, but fight will go on ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Union advocate and city finance employee Barbara Dahan carries a promotional sign outside the Ocean City convention center during polling on Tuesday.

(Nov. 9, 2012) Ocean City’s voters have rejected, by a nearly twoto-one margin, the proposed amendment to the city’s charter that would allow collective bargaining rights for the general employees. Tuesday’s ballot initiative saw 931 votes in favor of the union option, and 1,723 opposed. But municipal union proponents say that despite not winning over the voters the first time around, they have set themselves up to continue the fight. “We did real well. We did what we expected to do last night,” said Public Works employee and union supporter James Moxley. The drive for collective bargaining began in earnest this May, when a storefront was established in the Food Lion shopping center on 118th Street for an organization calling itself the Ocean City Employee Coalition. While the group itself consists of city workers, organizers said that the Maryland Classified Employees Association, which has helped organize collective bargaining for public employees around the state, was sponsoring and coordinating the union drive. The MCEA is affiliated with the

SAVINGS CENTR L

larger American Federation of Teachers, itself an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations. Organizers said that the AFT was providing the bulk of support, particularly in recruiting outside signature gatherers to canvass during times that city employees themselves could not. While Ocean City’s police and fire departments are unionized, its general employees are not. The city’s charter prohibits collective bargaining with any organization other than those representing the two departments. The charter can only be changed with the approval of City Council or the approval of the voters via referendum, which first requires a petition with the signatures of 20 percent of registered voters, per Maryland state law regarding municipal charter governments. When the petition was submitted in July, its 1,579 legitimate signatures exceeded the minimum of 1,208, given that the city has 6,039 registered voters. However, it appears that many city residents signed the petition in agreement with the right of employees to have the issue on the ballot, and not necessarily because they agreed with collective bargaining itself, given that only 59 percent of the number that signed

the petition actually voted for the charter amendment. Moxley attributed the reversal to several factors. One, he said, was the change of the municipal election date to match the national ballot, which appears to have roughly doubled the city’s voter turnout. “Maybe people [who turned out primarily for the national election] weren’t as educated about the union movement,” Moxley surmised. The highly contentious nature of the city’s election this year also appears to have been a doubleedged sword for the union push. Not only did vicious politics stoke voter turnout, but collective bargaining itself quickly become itself a political weapon between the City Council’s two factions, each blaming the other for employee dissatisfaction. “In the next election, we shouldn’t have that,” Moxley said, referring specifically to candidate Jim Hall’s extensive anti-union advertising. “Though we’ll still have to deal with the Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, and the Chamber of Commerce,” he continued, referring to the city’s two largest business associations, both of which also came out against collective bargaining.

Casino referendum approved; county votes mirror state as whole ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Maryland voters narrowly approved a massive overhaul and expansion of the state-sanctioned casino system at the polls Tuesday, with Worcester County and Ocean City’s voting divides closely matching the state’s overall results on gambling, as well as several other hotly contested referendum issues. Final tallies for Question 7 of the state ballot, the casino proposal, saw 1,270,239 votes in favor and 1,173,007 votes against, roughly a 52-to-48 percent split. For the whole of Worcester County, the split on Question 7 was similarly 13,109 in favor and 11,030 against, a 54.3to-45.7 percent split. And if results are narrowed down to just Worcester’s seventh election district, which comprises all of Ocean City and has just one polling place – the Roland E. Powell Convention Center – the split becomes 1,693 in favor and 1,461 against, a 53.7-to-46.3 percent split. The lack of a distinct position from Worcester or Ocean City in particular is likely because the casino revisions that will most affect the county’s casino — Ocean Downs near Ocean Pines— are already a done deal and did not require a ballot initiative. The referendum itself questioned whether table games, such as blackjack and poker, should be permitted at the state’s casinos. Currently, only “video lottery” facilities, consisting mainly of electronic slot machines and horse betting, are allowed. The expansion will further authorize a sixth casino in Prince George’s County. The state already has five sanctioned gambling locations, of which Ocean Downs is one. But regardless of whether the table games and a sixth facility were approved,

Union proponents continue to push Continued from Page 14

Despite the political storm being over, Moxley said that union proponents will continue to press the issue. “I talked to some of the candidates for council yesterday, to let them know that we’re still going to go ahead with this, no matter what,” Moxley said. Despite the election this year of candidates who were less overtly anti-union, “two years, four years from now, we know there could be another employee-unfriendly council.” “Equality doesn’t go away,” he added. Still, 931 favorable votes gives employees a solid base on which to build in coming years. While the unionization of the city’s fire department was approved directly by the council in 2007, Ocean City’s Fraternal Order of Police only succeeded in gaining bargaining powers in 2002 after two unsuccessful referendums. “We’ll be moving on in the future with the same deck. We’re going to try again,” Moxley said. “We have a meeting as early as next week to regroup.”

the state has already gone ahead with changes to the restrictions on Ocean Downs’ entertainment offerings. Whereas the previous gaming authorization restricted the casino’s offerings to certain fireworks and “a piano played by one person,” and bans the “playing of live music, floor shows, dancing, dancing exhibitions, performances or any other form of live entertainment in or near the video lottery facility,” the new bill lifts these prohibitions. “The way we see it, we’d like that entertainment to compliment what’s going on in Ocean City,” Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Melanie Pursel said in August. “We’re looking at this as more of a destination effort as to how to draw more people to the region, not just the casino per se,” Pursel said. “I don’t see it becoming a big, flashy casino. I think they’re comfortable. They know their market, and like any business, they’ll start small and respond to the demand they get.”

Much of the statewide debate over the referendum has centered on the state’s Education Trust Fund, which is supplied through the state’s hefty tax of gambling revenues. Although the Prince George’s site is projected to take business from casinos in Delaware and West Virginia and bring it to Maryland, the bill also lowers the tax rate on all casinos, meaning the positive or negative impact on revenue for education is up in the air. In the case of Ocean Downs, the state keeps 67 percent of the facility’s earnings, although this will come down to 57 percent in July of 2013, as long as the casino has fewer than 1,000 slot machines and commits 2.5 percent of its profits to redevelopment. The Maryland Jobs and Schools lobby group, which is backed by MGM Entertainment, the front-runner for the planned Prince George’s site, has claimed that $199 million will be created for schools each year, although the math has been widely disputed.

Curiously enough, it was the votes of densely populated Prince George’s County, as well as the similarly inhabited D.C. suburb of Montgomery County, that likely pushed the casinos through. Prince George’s voted 205,210 in favor to 139,659 against, and Montgomery 217,106 in favor to 178,833 against. The state’s other two referendums passed as well, although the split for Worcester and Ocean City was typically a reverse to the negative of the state’s split to the positive. On Question 6, the allowance of gay and lesbian marriage, Ocean City voted 45.7 percent in favor and 54.3 percent against, versus the state split of 51.9 percent in favor and 48.1 percent against. And on Question 4, the “Dream Act,” which would allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to receive in-state college tuition, Ocean City voted 43.4 percent in favor and 56.6 percent against, versus the state split of 58.3 percent in favor and 41.7 percent against.

Knight, Dare, Cymek, Mitrecic claim council seats 2012 MUNICIPAL ELECTION Continued from Page 1

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

Mayor Rick Meehan shares a laugh with a supporter while campaigning outside the convention center Tuesday morning. Although he easily beat his mayoral challenger, Nick Campagnoli, Meehan said he was more worried about the outcome of the council race against Jim and Joe Hall, whom he has consistently opposed.

entire 2010 contest (the final 2012 tally wasn’t scheduled to be released until Thursday night after Ocean City Today’s press time). Meehan said he was more concerned with the outcome for the four winning council candidates, whom he had supported, than he was for his own race. “I’m very happy with the way the council race turned out,” he said. Meehan also noted, as did several others, that he believed the outcome of the election was largely a referendum on the adversarial attitude that has pervaded City Hall for the past two years. “Some of the very negative advertising that we saw didn’t work,” Meehan said. “Instead of [that mindset] becoming the norm for the future, I think it will become past history.” Cymek, Knight, Dare, and Mitrecic have been more often than not endorsed as a group this

political season, due mainly to the perception of them as an opposition bloc against what was – up until Tuesday night – the fourperson voting majority in council, whose positions have stoked the ire of their fellow officials, particularly Meehan. That majority was formed in 2010, with the election of Councilman Brent Ashley, who voted in tandem with Hall, Hall, and Councilwoman Margaret Pillas in a number of controversial revisions to city policy. Particular among these were moves to abolish the city’s sub-commissions, as

well as revisions to employee benefit structures that saw the city’s pension plan closed out to new hires and a defined-contribution system introduced. While the 2010 majority maintained that they were workings towards transparency and sustainability, their detractors – Meehan, Cymek, Knight, and Council Secretary Lloyd Martin - countered that these changes were ill-conceived and intended to hang decisions up on a secretive four-member voting bloc that evidenced an antagonistic, purgative mentality towards city government.

Mitrecic ‘tickled to death’ to regain seat lost to Ashley in ’10 “You’ve got to hear them [the voters] loud and clear on this one,” said a relieved Martin who, despite not being up for reelection himself, waited anxiously on Tuesday. “I think there were a lot of politics that people didn’t like. I think we can find a balance now … I know we will.” Although technically non-incumbents, both Dare and Mitrecic are both veteran political figures who have held a particular symbolic significance throughout the campaign, likely even more so than their incumbent colleagues. Mitrecic served on the City Council from 2002 to 2010, with his last term as council president, before being defeated by Ashley in 2010 by a narrow margin of just 47 votes. It was his ouster that ushered in the change in majority and the political turmoil of the past two years. “It’s an unbelievable feeling [to be back],” Mitrecic said after his victory Tuesday. “I think we saw a true voter mandate tonight … and I’m tickled to death that I was on the receiving end of it.” Dare served as the town’s city manager for 21 years, up until the fall of 2011 when the then-majority voted to force him into retirement, alleging his reluctance to comply with certain cost-cutting measures regarding his employees. But the political controversy surrounding Dare’s theoretically non-political job seems to have only strengthened his subsequent candidacy. “I think I’ve demonstrated my resolve to work for the town in a new capacity now, no longer as an administrator, but as a policy-maker,” Dare said. “I think the voters thoroughly rejected some of the negative advertising, the deceptive advertising.” On Tuesday night, the winners’ focus seemed to be universally on consensus building, with a clear legislative direction particularly apt now that the city is in the initial stages of new City Manager David Recors’ in-depth strategic planning process. “I think it’s very timely, because we’re working on the strategic plan,” Knight said. “We have a new council in place and will look to the future.” “With the council that’s now in place, we’ll be able to take full advantage of that process,” Meehan said.

New City Council wins basket of hard choices Now that an extremely tough Ocean City municipal election is over and a new City Council with a new majority has been installed, the following game show comment seems appropriate: “Tell ’em what they’ve won, Bob.” That would be round of applause, congratulations on their huge mandate to change the direction of local government and hard work ahead. For starters, the next cycle of property reassessments in Ocean City — commercial properties from 25th Street north are being evaluated now for next year — could result in another, if somewhat smaller, dip in revenue on top of last year’s precipitous decline. If that happens, it will come as the council works out a new contract with the Fraternal Order of Police, whose members voluntarily gave up raises over the past three years. Add to that a general workforce that also hasn’t had a pay increase since 2008, and the council ends up with a budget-balancing act that will require complicated juggling to keep everyone — workers, police and taxpayers — happy. That, alone, is an imposing task. But as much as Ocean City likes to think it is somewhat isolated from national issues, it and everyone else also has a great deal riding on how federal officials resolve the country’s terrifying budgetary problems. Meanwhile, county government officials nervously await the results of property tax reassessments in the Ocean Pines and Berlin areas. The question is not whether assessments will decline in these communities, but by how much, giving the county another measure of revenue challenges and making officials in that quarter even less inclined to discuss a tax differential for Ocean City. Not to cast a pall on the well-deserved celebration of the new council’s sweeping victory, but things are different from what they used to be. Like their elected counterparts at the national level, council members have won a big basket of hard choices. We wish them success as they sort through it.

Job well done during hurricane Editor, We would like to take the time to personally thank the management, staff and volunteers of Ocean Pines Association who did an exemplary job during Hurricane Sandy. Under the coordination of Bob Thompson, all the mission essential departments in Ocean Pines were fully manned 24 hours during the emergency. Enough kudos cannot be given to our police and fire departments, EMTs, Public Works, Recreation and Parks, Food and Beverage, Aquatics, Casper Golf, office staff and PR departments. Many of these people worked on a 24-hour schedule, with a command center being set up at the Ocean Pines Administrative Building. Mr. Thompson and Chief [Bill] Bounds had the foresight to plan ahead for this storm. They secured a [High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, commonly known as a] Humvee and two members of the National Guard to operate it. Six members of the Swift-Water Rescue Team arrived from South Carolina, along with a boat if they needed to make water rescues. Throughout the night, our own crews patrolled Ocean Pines removing

limbs and trees from the road, putting up barricades where there was high water, and going door to door to notify the residents who lived in the area where a mandatory evacuation was ordered. The phones to Ocean Pines and Public Works were manned throughout the event. Many calls were received from concerned residents regarding their property, rising water, trees and location of shelters. Many calls came from family members who did not live here but were concerned about parents and loved ones. All calls were addressed as quickly as possible. Special thanks goes out to Chief Dave Massey and his entire police force: Fire/EMS Division Chief Bill Bounds and his staff of emergency responders; Teresa Travatello, who kept us informed on the Web site and on channel 78 with pictures from Ocean Pines and updates from the county and state; Michelle Bennett, who manned the phones; Sonja Bounds, Recreation and Parks, who helped wherever needed; Tom Perry from Aquatics, who secured cots for those who spent the night; Eddie Wells and his staff, who were out during the storm keeping the roads open; Rusty McLendon and his staff from Casper Golf, who constantly monitored the golf course conditions and also assisted public works; Josh Bickers, who manned the phones for Public Works, dispatching vehicles Continued on Page 21

OPINION 21

READERS’ FORUM Continued from Page 20

By Stewart Dobson The insurance adjuster came to the house the other day and, noting that Hurricane Sandy sent a great number of roof shingles sailing off like Frisbees, perhaps reestablishing themselves as part of an artificial fishing reef somewhere around the Canary Islands, suggested that his company would make good on our claim. Sort of. It’s like this, he said. Two sections of the three-section roof were damaged and would therefore be covered – more on that later – while the company would take a pass on replacing the third section, which sits in the middle, because it was mostly unharmed, new leaks notwithstanding. This is even though the revised roof setup would stick out like a Zamfir flute set at an Aerosmith concert, situated, as it would be, between two brand-spanking-new roofs on either side. Can’t be helped, he said, them’s the rules, whereupon he whipped out a check for, oh, about half of what it’s going to cost to replace the damaged sections, much less adding in a couple of cans of spray paint to try to make the center match. Interestingly enough, this very same insurance company issued a post-Sandy statement that said its profits were up higher than a New York wino because storm damage claims were less than expected. Well, no wonder. All up and down the coast, we’ll be seeing so many two-tone roofs that it will look like an English policeman’s hat band. Not to exaggerate or anything, but the view from space would lead any self-respecting intergalactic traveler to conclude that, while we may be a semi-advanced civilization, we have no sense of color or style: “We’ll skip this world, Xenon. It just doesn’t fit into our interplanetary design guidelines.” I’m not going to say the name of the company that’s shorted me on these two sections by themselves, assuming that my own cost estimates do not consider the option of simply wrapping the house in foil, but I am prepared to send a strongly worded letter. Which, in the interest of saving time and money, would be what I’m writing at this very moment. After all, if we’re only getting half the money, I’m sending a letter that requires only half the effort. So be warned. It could get dicey from here.

where needed; Art Carmine, who kept the phones and computers up and running; and David McLaughlin and his staff from the Yacht Club, who worked along with the fire department and public works department to kept the entire crew of more than 50 workers and volunteers fed through the entire storm. Please forgive us if there is anyone else we have failed to mention in this letter. We are sure the owners and residents of the Pines did not know what was going on behind the scenes. This was a well-run emergency program and our general manager, Bob Thompson, is to be credited with an outstanding job organizing all these various responders in the face of unknown dangers from this massive storm. Ocean Pines is truly fortunate to

have such a dedicated group of staff, volunteers and employees. Many, many thanks. Sharyn O’Hare, Tom Terry, Dan Stachurski, Terri Mohr, Dave Stevens and Ray Unger

Delmarva Power commended Editor, As an Ocean City condo owner for 40 years and a resident for the last 18, I would like to commend Delmarva Power for keeping us in service during “Sandy,” not losing a single minute of communication. I’m our association secretary and I was able to keep our 56 owners advised throughout, together with photos of the damage as it developed. Thank goodness it was minimal to our property and the city in general. It

could have been so much worse. Also many, many thanks to the Public Works Department. A couple of days after the event, our city didn’t even look like a storm came through. Apologies if I’ve missed anyone. You’ve all done an outstanding job and it’s very much appreciated, certainly by this homeowner. Jean Laird Ocean City

Comments and praise after Hurricane Sandy Editor, As I write this note, Hurricane Sandy has come and gone, the Department of Public Works is in the final days of returning Ocean City to a level of normalcy as it pertains to cleanliness, and the local election is upon us. I clearly realize the focus of this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper will be the election results, but I feel the need to pause and provide a few wrapup comments on behalf of the recent storm. First, I would like to thank those in the community who reached out to the staff of the Public Works Department with their thoughtfulness and generosity when they went out of their way to walk the Boardwalk and beach to provide food to the equipment operators. You will remain nameless in this letter, but you are not nameless in our memo-

ries. Your actions will not be forgotten. Second, I would like to thank the property owners who diligently and swiftly took time to follow our instructions to place storm-related debris curbside in neat piles for a most efficient collection process. That effort has seen great success in the last few days. Third, thank you to the contractors, whom I consider personal friends, who found it within their means to respond to our calls for help. The immediacy of your response reinforces my belief that life is all about relationships. You all proved that to be true once again. And last, but far from the least, thank you to my staff. Every last one of you! You have all gone out of your way to restore Ocean City to the beautiful, clean place I personally call home in record time. I have always felt that â&#x20AC;&#x153;failure to succeedâ&#x20AC;? is not an option. Once again, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve proven that statement true. Hal O. Adkins, Director Ocean City Public Works

Timeless devotion and organization at shelter Editor, The high winds and proximity of large trees next to my home led me to seek shelter for myself and my dog, Izzy, at the Stephen Decatur Middle School facility [when Hurricane Sandy hit the resort]. There, I not only found shelter, but a most competent and organized team. They not only carried out their duties, but did so with kindness and respect for all individuals. This many-faceted project involved the Red Cross, Social Services, cafeteria staff, law enforcement and Animal Control. Many worked from the time the shelter opened on Sunday until closing with very little sleep. I may not always remember the names â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like Aleesha in Social Services, nurse Bonnie, or Officer Young and her fellow officer in Animal Control, but I will always remember their tireless devotion to the people and animals in the shelter.

Wednesday was to clean up the beach in Crisfield. The group also sought volunteers to unload donated supplies in Crisfield and organize them so they could be distributed. In addition to South Moon Under and The Globe, the Glen Riddle pro shop, Brandywine Assisted Living in Fenwick Island and the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce were collection sites for the group. The chamber continues to be a drop-off site. Donations of items may be left at the chamber building on Route 50 at Route 707 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week. “We will keep doing it until they tell us they don’t need it anymore,” said Lisa Dennis, events coordinator for the chamber. Dennis said they are putting together mud kits for the hurricane victims. Those kits contain paper towels, bleach, trash bags and “items to scrub with. Things to clean up with,” she said. “They’re not getting enough of that stuff.” Also needed, Dennis said, are empty five-gallon buckets, blankets, throw rugs, carpet remnants and small ceramic heaters. Bille Joe Chandler, a Crisfield business owner who is heading up that end of the disaster relief effort, will distribute the heaters to people who need them. When their electricity returns, they will return the items to Chandler, who will loan them to someone else in need, Dennis said. The chamber provides transportation to take the items to Crisfield. A van and two cars were used to deliver items Monday. They took clothes and blankets to the Church of God and food and cleaning supplies to the Emanuel Church. Volunteers could be needed to help with deliveries or other chores. To volunteer, call Lisa Dennis at 443-8802433 or email lisa@oceancity.org. Because of the hundreds of bags of clothing that have been taken to Crisfield, no more clothing, except for warm jackets and new undergarments, is needed, Chandler said Monday. People in Crisfield need furniture and heaters to cope with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which caused the biggest flood in Crisfield in 100 years. “People are in houses with no electricity,” Chandler said. “All of their furniture is wet. We’re trying to get them situated.” What they need most are heaters, stoves, refrigerators, beds, sofas, chairs, blankets and towels. She estimated they could need as many as 70 stoves and refrigerators. Although the clothes are no longer needed in Crisfield because of so many donations from so many places, they will still be accepted. “We’re not turning anyone away,” Chandler said. The clothes could be offered to people on Smith Island or in Deal Island, she said. Donated clothes have gone to the

In Ocean Pines at the Public Works building on Monday, there were stacks of bottled water and toilet tissue.

Other boxes were for boys clothing, girls clothing, socks, diapers, canned food, dry goods, blankets, toiletries, toys and pet supplies. The filled boxes went on pallets to be loaded into a tractor-trailer of Shelby Trucking and Construction in Selbyville, Del., which is donating its services to deliver the collected items to victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York or New Jersey.

Annual holiday collection benefits U.S. troops Local program sends ‘taste of home’ to military serving overseas for holiday season (Nov. 9, 2012) All Volunteers in Action, a group of local like-minded individuals, has begun collecting holiday gifts for U.S. soldiers serving overseas. This holiday activity was started nine years ago Carl Foultz, who served in China, Burma and India during World War II. He remembered how much the small comforts of home were not available. Personal products not received from home, for example, were very difficult to obtain. In November 2003, Foultz organized “Holiday Gifts for our Soldiers” by placing

donation containers throughout the area. This year, containers marked to receive donated items will be placed at county libraries in Ocean Pines, Ocean City and Berlin. Containers will also be placed at the Ocean Pines Community Center, American Legion Post 166 in Ocean City, American Legion Post 123 in Berlin, and VFW Post 8296 in Ocean City. Some suggested items are chewing gum, canned fruits and nuts, Slim Jims, beef jerky, sunglasses, suntan lotion,

board games, playing cards, small paperback books and powdered drinks like Crystal Light, tea, coffee and Gatorade. Also needed are daily toiletries for men and women, including dark hand towels, washcloths and foot powder. No liquids or perishable items such as cookies will be accepted. All donations are appreciated. Make checks payable to “Holiday Gifts for our Soldiers” and mail to Anna Foultz, 127 High Sheriff Trail, Ocean Pines, Md. 21811. The containers will be collected Nov. 30. The distribution of donated items will be coordinated by Lt. Michael Clancy, programs director for the Maryland National Guard. For more information, call 410-6417667 or 410-208-9514.

Berlin Farmers Market will now be managed by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Main Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group After much debate, weekly market will continue to call North Main Street lot home NATHAN BRUNET â&#x2013;  Bayside Gazette Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) The Berlin Farmers Market has cut its connection with the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and is now under the guidance of the Main Street Berlin program. The move comes as discussion continues about a long-term strategy for the market and how it might relocate elsewhere in the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s center. "We â&#x20AC;Ś are looking forward now to a new partnership with the Main Street Berlin program, while maintaining the character and high quality of our downtown Berlin Farmers Market," said Paul Wood, owner of A & W Farms and a member of the local farmers market in a press release sent Monday, Nov. 5. Main Street Berlin, managed by Berlin Economic & Community Development Director Michael Day, is in the middle of setting up an official advisory board for the market. This board will feature Day, Berlin Councilmember Lisa Hall, two market vendors, two representatives of the Berlin business community, two Berlin community members and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;market masterâ&#x20AC;? to act as the vendors' leader. The most immediate action Main

Stefanie Barfield of Chesterfield Heirlooms tends to her stand of heirloom vegetables she describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;old world versions of modern vegetables.â&#x20AC;? Barfield and her husband are regulars at the Berlin Farmers Market.

Street Berlin will take is the appointment of a market master, a position that has been vacant for many months. Olive Mawyer, former executive director of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce, had held the title, but no one has assumed the position since Aaren Collins took Mawyer's chamber position in May. Another town event has also been created: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Agriculture Heritage Weekend,â&#x20AC;? which will be coordinated by the farmers

market and Main Street Berlin. Additionally, there will likely be an annual presentation of the Berlin Farmers Market at a mayor and council meeting. With the changing to new leadership, the Berlin Farmers Market will also undergo an update of its rules and regulations. As the development of a long-term strategy for the market, Day could not give an estimate as to when any newly dis-

cussed items will be officially confirmed. However, Day was able to confirm the Berlin Farmers Market will stay in the North Main Street lot until at least next season and new locations close to the town's center will be discussed. "I believe everyone at the meeting found that we have much to gain by working together and much to lose if we do not," Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said in the press release. Williams is referencing the mayor and council meeting on Oct. 22, when the removal of the farmers market from its traditional downtown parking lot off North Main Street was discussed. Berlin officials cited a need for additional parking because consumers have been complaining to the town about a lack of parking availability, especially since a great influx of new businesses have brought much traffic to the downtown area. As the farmers market can take up as many as 25 parking spaces on the townowned lot, Berlin officials decided the best option was to move the market from the location it has occupied for the past 19 years. The town offered Stephen Decatur Park and Dr. William Henry Park as new market locations, and asked the chamber to make the required formal request of moving the market. Supporters of the Berlin Farmers Market filled the council chamber in protest of the relocation and to lambaste. See TOWN on Page 31

WORCESTER COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics during their Wednesday, Nov. 7, meeting:

Proclamations The commissioners issued a proclamation recognizing the month of November as Native American Heritage Month and Nov. 23 as Native American Heritage Day. They recognized the Assateague Tribe, Accohannock Tribe and People of Mother Earth-Wolf Clan as local Native American tribes. The commissioners also recognized the month of November as National Adoption Month and honored families who have opened their hearts and homes to children of all ages through adoption.

Rental assistance The commissioners approved the annual grant application for the Rental Allowance Program as requested by the Worcester County Department of Social Services. The program assists county residents with rental payments and security deposits.

Portable restrooms The commissioners approved the portable restroom service bid package for boat landings, solid waste transfer stations, recreational parks and the firing range. The contract is for two years starting with the award of the bid and ending Dec. 31, 2014. Bids will be accepted until 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26.

Town will develop long-term strategy for market growth Continued from Page 30

Many lambasted the chamber and town for not giving farmers any notice, while others argued that moving the market's presence away from downtown would kill business. Because of the strong protest — not one public comment was in favor of the move — the mayor and council decided to table the motion to move. The day after the meeting, Williams sent a press release reminding the public it was originally the town’s request to move the market. As town and market representatives plan the future of the Berlin Farmers Market, its members have expressed pleasure with the new direction. ‘With 20 years of history and loyal customers here, I can say we are very pleased to be staying in downtown Berlin,” Wood said.

County OKs Board of Ed’s capital improvement plan Renovation at SHHS and energy efficiency project at SHMS top list of priorities NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) The Worcester County Commissioners approved, but did not discuss, the Board of Education’s capital improvement plan for fiscal year 2014 Wednesday. The two school construction projects in the plan are the renovation and addition at Snow Hill High School and an energy efficiency project at Snow Hill Middle School. Superintendent of Schools Jerry Wilson told the commissioners that he needed their approval of the capital im-

provement plan as a planning document and wanted to proceed with bidding for the work this summer at Snow Hill High School. He wants conSuperintendent struction to begin on that project in Jerry Wilson January 2014. Approval of the proposed plan is needed by Nov. 28, Wilson said. The work at Snow Hill High School has been discussed for several years. The commissioners considered the need for it in 2001 and authorized a feasibility study in 2003. Architectural and engineering construction documents were finalized in 2006 and completed architectural designs were reviewed and approved by the Maryland Intera-

gency Committee for School Construction in 2007. That made the project eligible for state funding. The work at Snow Hill Middle School, meanwhile, includes the replacement of lamps and ballasts in more than 2,000 light fixtures. Delmarva Power estimates a 55 percent reduction in annual lighting kilowatt hours that would reduce the school’s yearly utility bill by $40,000. Wilson also told the commissioners the complete renovation or replacement of Showell Elementary School is still a priority. A preliminary site survey was completed in 2008 and a feasibility study is scheduled for next fall. The Board of Education hopes to seek state authorization to begin the architectural planning in fiscal year 2016 and to ask for construction funds in fiscal year 2017.

A Berlin man and an Ocean City woman were charged Oct. 26 with numerous drug offenses as the result of investigations into heroin trafficking in northern Worcester County over the past several months. During those investigations, David Sturgill, 33, of Berlin, was identified as a source of heroin. Investigators learned that Sturgill was traveling to the Baltimore area with Lauren Ann Johnson, 24, of Ocean City, on Oct. 25. The following day, as the two returned from Baltimore, police stopped Sturgill’s vehicle near the intersection of Libertytown Road and Ninepin Branch Road and arrested Sturgill and Johnson. During a search of Sturgill and his vehicle, police found 105 individuallywrapped bags of heroin, a digital scale and numerous items of paraphernalia. They seized those items and Sturgill’s 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck. Later that day, investigators executed the search and seizure warrant on Sturgill’s Berlin residence and seized various items of paraphernalia. Sturgill and Johnson were charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute it and possession of controlled paraphernalia, a hypodermic syringe. Participating in the investigation and/or arrests were members of the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Division, the Ocean City Police De-

A 26-year-old Walkersville woman who stopped her car on the Route 50 bridge because she “saw a guy fishing” just before 2 a.m. on Nov. 2, was arrested. According to Ocean City police, Katie Mae Autumn Murray stopped her Hyundai on the westbound side on the bridge, hindering the passage of other vehicles. She told police she had consumed four alcoholic drinks before driving. She then said she parked on the bridge “because of faith.” After failing to complete field sobriety tests, Murray said she was an 11 or 12 on a scale of 1 for “buzzed” and 10 for “drunk.” She also cursed a police officer and spit in her face. When placed into the rear passenger side seat of a police vehicle, Murray took her seat belt off and used her legs and feet to kick a police officer who tried to put the seat belt back on her, according to the police report. Before having Murray’s car towed, police conducted an inventory of its contents and found a wooden container of marijuana. Murray was charged with two counts of second-degree assault, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia

Bar patron taped stealing $20 from woman A surveillance video recorded Oct. 28 showed a man at a mid-town bar removing money from a wallet that a woman had left on the bar. The woman had reported that she was missing two $20 bills. After watching the video, police went to the bar and found that the man, Vernon Grant, 50, of Baltimore, was still sitting there. He had two $20 bills in his possession. They arrested him and charged him with theft of less than $100.

Argument between man, woman ends with assault A 54-year-old Baltimore man allegedly hit a woman in her face during an Oct. 26 argument at the 135th Street apartment they had shared less than a week. Police charged John Raymond Creamer with second-degree assault.

Mustard message greets driver not in ‘allotted space’ Angered that a woman had parked her vehicle in his designated condominium parking space on 40th Street, an Ocean City man used mustard to write on the hood of her Ford Explorer on Oct. 31. “Hey coward, park in your space,” Christopher M. Prigg, 37, wrote. Earlier, he had left a handwritten note beneath a wiper blade that said, “I don’t believe I know you, so you don’t know me, therefore do not park in my allotted space.” Police found Prigg by going to the unit number for the assigned parking space. He told police he wrote on the vehicle to get his message across. He cleaned the mustard off the Ford, but police saw that it had caused small bubbling on the clear coat of paint and charged him with malicious destruction of property under $500. The woman told police she parked her vehicle in the man’s spot to prevent damage to it during the hurricane. Her Ford’s moon roof was broken and she did not want to park it on the side of the street. At the time she parked, she said, no other vehicles were in the condominium’s parking spaces.

(Nov. 9, 2012) Delmarva Power has extended the sign-up period for customers who would like to receive free trees through “Energy-Saving Trees,” an Arbor Day Foundation program that helps conserve energy and reduce energy bills through strategic tree planting. Customers reserved about 1,200 trees in the last few weeks, so there are approximately 1,800 trees remaining to be given away. Delmarva Power customers can reserve their free trees at arborday.org/Delmarvatrees, through Wednesday, Nov. 21. An online tool helps customers estimate the annual energy savings that will result from planting trees in the most strategic location near their homes or businesses. Customers can reserve up to two trees and are expected to care for and plant them in the location provided by the online tool. The types of trees offered include Washington hawthorn, white dogwood, bald cypress, American beech, hackberry, river birch and sugar maple. The two-to-four foot tall trees will be delivered directly to customers at an ideal time for planting. “This program benefits the environment and can help customers save money on their energy bills,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power Region president. The “Energy-Saving Trees” online tool was created by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Davey Institute, a division of Davey Tree Expert Co., and uses peer-reviewed scientific research from the USDA Forest Service’s i-Tree software to calculate estimated benefits. In addition to providing approximate energy savings, the tool also estimates the trees’ other benefits, including cleaner air, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and improved storm water management. Many scientists say that within 20 years the 3,000 mature trees will result in more than $500,000 in energy savings.

Nurse Practitioner Week celebrated in U.S.Nov.11-17 (Nov. 9, 2012) As the health care provider shortage continues to top the national agenda, it is important that the public be aware that there are more than 155,000 nurse practitioners in the United States who provide high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients across the country. On the local level, there are approximately 22 nurse practitioners who provide care across the health care spectrum at Atlantic General Hospital and Health System in Berlin. Nurse practitioners are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced education (most have master’s and many have doctorate degrees) and extensive clinical training who provide primary, acute and specialty health care services. In addition to providing a full range of services, they work as partners with their patients, guiding them to make educated health care decisions and healthy lifestyle choices. The confidence that patients have in nurse practitioner-delivered health care is evidenced by the more than 600 million visits made to NPs every year. National Nurse Practitioner Week, Nov. 11-17, is a time to celebrate these health care providers.

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (Nov. 9, 2012) The final game of the Stephen Decatur football team’s regular season is traditionally a match-up against Worcester County rivals, the Snow Hill Eagles. This year, Decatur hosted the competition, and after trailing 24-14 at the halftime break last Friday, the home team fought back to earn a 40-24 victory. It was the second half that made the difference in the game, as the Seahawks scored 26 points while holding their opponents scoreless. “It was a tale of two games. In the first half they dominated and kicked our butts and in the second half, we kicked their butts a little worse,” Decatur Coach Bob Knox said after his team’s Senior Night win. “We were the nail in the first half and we were the hammer in the second half. They never quit. We took control of the line of scrimmage in the second half.” Seniors Richard Armstrong and Troy Taylor tallied touchdowns and senior Mike Shumate’s kicks were good to give the Eagles a 14-0 lead in the opening quarter. Decatur junior P.J. Copes scored

Stephen Decatur senior Ashley Trice receives the ball during the opening round of the 3A East Regional tournament last Friday against Northeast in Berlin.

(Nov. 9, 2012) The sixth-seeded Stephen Decatur volleyball team battled from two games behind last Friday to win the opening round of the 3A East Regional tournament over the No. 11 Northeast Eagles in Berlin. The visiting Eagles led 22-12 in the first game, but the Lady Seahawks fought back only to come up a short. Northeast won 25-17. Decatur trailed in the second game, and again battled back only to fall to the Eagles 25-23. “I thought they looked very nervous and scared in the first game. [Northeast] definitely had some hard serves that we’re not really used to,” said Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer. “They got it together a little bit, but at the end of that second game, I felt like they just gave it to Northeast.” See DECATUR on Page 40

Decatur volleyball team drops second-round match to River Hill Continued from Page 39

The Seahawks took a 9-2 lead in the third game and never looked back, winning the contest 25-13. Points were traded in the fourth game, but the home team held on for a 27-25 victory. Scoring again went back and fourth in the fifth game. Decatur led 11-10 and went on a four-point run to come out on top 1510. “[In] the third game they looked flat, but they played well, and then it was just like they were a completely different team in the forth and fifth games,” Zimmer said. “After winning that third game, and especially the fourth game, I think they really got into it, which I haven’t really seen all season long. They looked excited.” Senior Casey Ortiz recorded a seasonhigh 16 kills and also had seven assists. Defensive specialist, senior Alexis Martinek, dug 23 Eagles’ hits and junior Taylor Black tallied nine kills. Senior Ashley Trice had three aces and 14 assists. “It felt amazing to win because this is the first time in a long time we’ve gone this far,” Ortiz said. “At first, I think everyone came in with the thought that they came from across the bridge and they’re big and we were going to get crushed, but then we got it in our minds that we’re a good team and if we play together, we can beat them and that’s what we did.” The victory advanced Decatur to the next round, where the squad met the third-seeded River Hill Hawks in

Clarksville, Md. Zimmer said after a threehour bus ride Monday, the Seahawks were flat in the first game, which the Hawks won 25-6. “We didn’t come to play that first game. We knew River Hill would be good and I think that intimidated the girls before they even got on the court,” she said. Zimmer said her team got into a groove and communicated better in second game, but the Seahawks came out on the losing end, 25-18. River Hill earned a 25-13 victory in the third game. “I think we got too much into our own heads,” Zimmer said. “They definitely had some height and some big hitters that were more consistent than us, but I think they were beatable.” The Seahawks finished the season with a 10-7 record. Zimmer stepped in as head coach for Bertha Ortiz, who was at the helm for 12 seasons. Ortiz passed away in July at the age of 47 after a long battle with cancer. Zimmer was the junior varsity head coach and a varsity assistant under Ortiz for four seasons. “It was definitely a strange season not having Bertha with us,” Zimmer said. “It was hard at first, but I was proud that the girls were able to push through and I thought they did great. Once we got going, it was nice to watch them grow as players.” Although four of the 10 players on Zimmer’s roster will graduate in May, the six underclassmen played in each match and have varsity-level experience, which she said will be beneficial for next season.

LISA CAPITELLI â&#x2013;  Assistant Editor (Nov. 9, 2012) The Stephen Decatur boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soccer team did not perform last Thursday as well as Coach Jamie Greenwood has seen the group play in the past, and it led to the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; downfall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we showed up to play. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame the hurricane because everyone was in the same boat,â&#x20AC;? he said after Decaturâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-0 loss to the River Hill Hawks during the second round of the 3A East Regional tournament. Because of Hurricane Sandy and school closures, the Seahawks only got one day of practice in before the Nov. 1 competition in Berlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were flat. It felt like we had no motivation or desire to win,â&#x20AC;? Greenwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lack of motivation and lack of desire did us in.â&#x20AC;? The seventh-seeded Hawks led 2-0 at halftime. Greenwood said the secondseeded Seahawks had a communication breakdown on both of those goals. River Hill tacked on two additional goals in the second half to secure the victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a couple opportunities to score in the first half near the 6 [-yard box], but we wanted to be fancy [with the ball],â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played them last year and we beat them. They knew how to play on our field and they just played long balls and let their players run onto it.â&#x20AC;? Decatur junior goalie Logan Thumma stopped 10 River Hill shots. The Seahawks finished the season with a 10-4 record. Eight players will graduate in May, a majority of which were starters. Greenwood said, overall, he was pleasantly surprised this season. Twelve players graduated, seven who were starters in 2011, so Greenwood knew the success of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team would hinge on all 20 players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was more of a team effort this year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we played as a team, we did well. Overall, I was happy with the growth from start to finish. I saw some good things and hopefully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll build on that next year.â&#x20AC;?

The Seahawks out-shot the Raiders 7-3 in the first 10 minutes of play, but then seemed to struggle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 20-25 minutes where we were off in the first half and they took it to us during that time,â&#x20AC;? Bunting said. The Raiders led 5-0 when Calandra scored about two minutes before the halftime break. Atholton tacked on a sixth goal midway into the second half. With just over seven minutes to play, freshman Alexis McDonough curved her corner kick into the net to cut the Raidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to four, but it was the final goal the Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would score. DePaul played in goal the first 30 minutes of the game before tweaking

Second-seeded Decatur had earned a first-round bye in the tournament. Senior Tori Whigham put Decatur on the board in the first half of last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Berlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were having trouble finding the back of the net in the first half,â&#x20AC;? said Seahawk Coach Misty Bunting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We calmed things down a little bit in the second half. We repositioned the girls and talked about where they needed to be on the field and then, boom-boom, we got two quick goals.â&#x20AC;? Whigham earned a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hat trick,â&#x20AC;? scoring Decaturâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second and third goals in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was just a superstar tonight,â&#x20AC;?

NOVEMBER 9, 2012

Decatur runners â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;come a long wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; since beginning of season LISA CAPITELLI â&#x2013;  Assistant Editor (Nov. 9, 2012) The Stephen Decatur cross country teams battled tough competition during last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3A East Regional meet at Centennial High School in Howard County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We gave a really good effort, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we had enough to compete. [The] 3A East is probably the strongest region in the state,â&#x20AC;? said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so tough is because the teams are 1,000 times deeper than the schools around here. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have a better chance if we competed against stronger competition during the season.â&#x20AC;? Eight-two runners competed in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; race. Senior Nick Molitor was the first Decatur athlete to cross the finish line. He placed 59th overall (20:17.04). Molitor was followed by junior Kevin Herbert (61st, 20:46.84), sophomore Jake Gaddis (63rd, 20:51.64) and seniors Noah McAleer (64th, 21:03.68) and Dan Winters (66th, 21:23.66). Decatur finished 10th out of the 12 participating teams. Seventy-four female runners competed. Lauren Buckman, the Lady Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone senior, led her squad. She placed 54th overall (24:36.05). Junior Alex Saunders and sophomore Jordan Klebe, finished

60th (25:27.63) and 61st (25:28.14) respectively. Sophomore Meya Chilengi was Decaturâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth athlete to cross the finish line. She completed the race in 27:16.29. To score or to be entitled to team awards, a school must have at least five athletes cross the finish line. The Lady Seahawks, however, had just four runners compete as some teammates were plagued with injuries. No Decatur male or female runner placed high enough to qualify for the state championship meet. Since Decatur moved from the 2A classification to 3A in 2007, only three runners have advanced to the state competition: Lindsay Chetelat (2007 and 2008), Mitch Witherow (2008) and Buckman (2011). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much luck,â&#x20AC;? Stigler said. Overall, Stigler was pleased with the runnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; performance during his first season as head coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I measure success by improvement, and there was definitely a lot of growth,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Compared to where we were at the start of the season, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come a long way.â&#x20AC;? The girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team will lose Buckman to graduation. Four of the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top seven runners â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Molitor, Winters, McAleer and Kyle Kelly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will graduate in May.

Freshman Alexis Gausepohl relieved DePaul and stopped seven Atholton shots, including a penalty kick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put the ball in the back of the net. The girls played better in the second half, it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough,â&#x20AC;? Bunting said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had eight seniors starting and they were bigger and more experienced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We told the girls they have nothing to hang their heads about,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a fantastic season.â&#x20AC;? The Seahawks finished with an 112-1 record. Bunting said her players showed much improvement from last season. She was pleased with the quality of soccer the girls played this

year and how they worked together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way they improved and developed as a team was great to watch. It was the most coachable team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had,â&#x20AC;? Bunting said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were deeper than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in the past, which was nice because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose a step when we subbed. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good group of girls and they made it fun. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud of them.â&#x20AC;? Five seniors, including four starters, will graduate in May. Seven of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starters were underclassmen: one freshman, three sophomores and three juniors. Half of Buntingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 roster consisted of ninth- and 10th-graders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still young. The future looks bright,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Coaches challenge Seahawks and players respond in 2nd half Continued from Page 39

BANK RECOGNIZES WEEK 9 DECATUR MVP The Bank of Ocean City sponsors the broadcast of the Stephen Decatur High School football games each week on WQMR 101.1 FM. Following each game, a most valuable player is chosen and, as part of its annual $500 pledge, the bank makes a donation to the Stephen Decatur High School Athletic Boosters in that player’s name. Week 9 winner is Andrew Borradaile. On hand for the recent presentation, from left, are Earl Conley of the Bank of Ocean City, Borradaile and SDHS Coach Bob Knox.

Week 10 winner is PJ Copes.

and junior Fletcher Case’s kick was successful to cut Snow Hill’s advantage in half in the final seconds of the quarter. The Eagles pulled ahead 21-7 on a Taylor touchdown and a senior Hamza Choudrey kick midway into the second quarter, but Copes answered about three minutes later. Case made the extra point. Just before the break, Choudrey hit a field goal to increase Snow Hill’s advantage to 10 points. Although Knox wouldn’t reveal exactly what the coaching staff talked about with their players during halftime, he summed up the speech by saying they challenged the Seahawks to play to their potential. The words said obviously worked. Decatur senior James Mapp returned the kickoff at the start of the third quarter 80 yards to bring his team to within four points (24-20). That play, Knox said, changed the momentum of the game in the Seahawks’ favor. With about three minutes left in the third quarter, Snow Hill fumbled the ball in the end zone and it was recovered by junior Chase Sams. The recovery gave Decatur its first lead of the night (26-24). Forty-five seconds into the fourth quarter, junior Andrew Borradaile ran the ball 48 yards to score and Copes was successful on the two-point conversion to put Decatur on top 34-24.

Copes scored again at the 4:40 mark, boosting the Seahawks’ advantage to 4024. Borradaile carried the ball 13 times, racking up 134 yards. Mapp earned 88 yards on 12 rushes and Copes tallied 141 yards on 15 carries. Sams led the Decatur defense with 19 tackles. Junior Wyatt Brady and senior Ryan Kail each made eight tackles. In all other high school sports, teams automatically qualify to compete in the playoffs, but in football, squads must perform well enough during the regular season in order to advance. The top four teams in the north, south, east and west regions of the 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A classifications advance to the state tournament. Decatur went 5-5 this season and finished in eighth place out of the 12 teams in the 3A East region. “If we could have played hard for 48 minutes in all of our games we could have been a really good football team,” Knox said. “Hopefully, the kids learn that you’ve got to play from the beginning to the end and you’ve got to finish the task you started. You can’t just do it part way for a while and them turn it on.” Knox said quite a few players, especially on the offensive line, will graduate in May. It will be a challenge for the Seahawks to rebuild, but Knox said he looks forward to that test next season.

Aftermath of storm affects real estate

Starting a small business seminar

LAUREN BUNTING ■ Contributing Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, real estate sales and refinance timelines are being affected. Homes that were under contract and scheduled for a settlement have been experiencing delays due to banks requiring the homes to be re-inspected for storm damage; in some cases, by the original appraisers. In other cases, the banks are allowing borrowers to accelerate the process by simply submitting photos as evidence that the home scheduled to settle did not suffer any storm damage. But for those in the hardest hit areas along the northeast, the storm most likely delayed or even completely terminated purchases. If the house has repairs, the loans won’t close until those repairs are completed, and if the repairs are extensive and take longer than the agreed upon settlement date in the contract of sale, then the buyer can likely walk from the deal. Especially with Federal Housing Administration loans, which have stricter inspection policies surrounding safety and structural concerns. In addition, the FHA has announced it will suspend foreclosures for 90 days in disaster-affected areas throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. HUD also makes mortgage insurance available under its Section 203(h) program, which provides FHA insurance to disaster victims who have lost their homes and are facing the daunting task of rebuilding or buying another home. Borrowers from participating FHA-approved lenders are eligible for 100 percent financing. According to the National Association of Realtors chief economist, Lawrence Yun, a See REGIONAL on Page 46

Around Sound Music co-owner Gina Servant, left, and creative director Kate Russell sit in the facility’s new performing arts center, which includes a stage, tables and chairs for guests and ample space for classes.

‘AROUND SOUND’ EXPANDS New performing arts center features stage, space for classes LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (Nov. 9, 2012) When Around Sound Music opened in August 2011, owners Lori Thompson and Gina Servant wanted to provide an environment for students of all ages to express their creativity and passion through music. Their objective was to instill confidence, pride, discipline and a love of music into everyone who visited the West Ocean City studio. Around Sound Music, located in the Decatur Business Center on Route 611, just offered private and group vocal and instrumental lessons when it opened last summer in six state-of-the-art rooms, painted different colors with isolation panels on the ceiling and acoustic material on the walls in each space for highquality sound production. Currently, 45 students are taking lessons at the studio. Several of the students have formed a band, under the direction of Thompson. A few intermediate and advanced students will participate in a competition in February in Gaithersburg, Md. In early September, Around Sound Music ex-

panded into the unit next door. A doorway was cut out in the lounge area of the business as an entrance into the new space. “We’re very happy. We’re fortunate we were able to move next door and provide a place for our kids to perform. It’s something Lori and I wanted to do when we first opened,” Servant said. “The space is really for the community. That’s why we opened it. It’s a place for kids to hang out and express themselves through music or art.” Added Around Sound Music creative director Kate Russell, “We’re trying to reach out to the community as much as possible. We expanded two months ago and we’re trying to spread the word. There’s nothing like this around here.” Walking into the performing arts center, the first thing guests will see is a large stage with a drum set, keyboard, speakers and microphones. The room is painted dark gray. Partitioned nooks are painted different colors — light and dark blue and green — and a table and chairs are set up in each private section. There is also a lounge area in the back of the center. Wood pieces and metals give the

space a rustic, industrial look. “The kids just love it. They feel grown up in there,” Russell said. Since taking over the space next door, Around Sound Music has expanded its offerings, now providing art and drama/theater classes as well as special activities. Around Sound Music will present a holiday musical recital. Students and children in the community are invited to participate in the event, which will be directed by Alicia Burton, who teaches theater classes and singing lessons at Around Sound Music. The first practice was scheduled for yesterday, Nov. 8. Participants will practice each Thursday from 6-8 p.m. Around Sound Music students and area youngsters can also join the studio’s caroling group. Children will practice weekly and perform this holiday at different locations, including The Globe and Wal-Mart in Berlin and ChickFil-A in West Ocean City and residential neighborhoods. Russell said they hope to form a children’s choir in the near future. Around Sound Music plans to again have floats in the See ART on Page 46

The 20th annual Winterfest of Lights winter wonderland at Northside Park on 125th Street will feature more than 100 glittering and animated displays.

Winterfest of Lights One hundred colorful displays will illuminate Northside Park as part of Ocean City’s annual holiday festival

OCEAN CITY ■ Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8296 and American Legion Synepuxent Post 166: The American Legion Synepuxent Post 166, located on 24th Street, will begin its ceremony at 1 p.m. Sunday. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8296, on 66th Street, will co-host the event at the American Legion. American Legion Post 166 Cmdr. Bill Wolf will lead the program, along with Commander Rich Galante of VFW Post 8296. Tammy Matrey, president of Unit 166 Auxiliary, and June Kelly, president of VFW 8296 Auxiliary, will say a few words, as well. Cmdr. Joe Vendura will provide the Benediction. A wreath-laying ceremony will follow the service. The American Legion Post 166 Color Guard will be on hand for the gun-firing salute and Fred Muela will play Taps. The event is open to the public and refreshments will be served following the program. For more information, call 410-289-3166.

OCEAN PINES ■ Flag Retirement Ceremony: A flag retirement ceremony will take place Saturday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. at the Worcester County Veterans Memorial, off Route 589 in Ocean Pines. See RETIRED on Page 60

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Assistant Editor (Nov. 9, 2012) Hundreds of guests will join Ocean City Elementary School’s “OC Stars” and Mayor Rick Meehan as they kick off the 20th annual Winterfest of Lights on Thursday, Nov. 15, with an opening ceremony at Northside Park. The celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the OC Stars performing holiday songs at the 125th Street park. The children will then assist Meehan in “flipping” the switch to light the winter wonderland, which features a 50foot tree with more than 50,000 lights. The entire tree will be adorned with LED (Light Emitting Diodes) light bulbs, which are energy efficient, are more vibrant and last longer than other lights. The tree also has LED strobe lights this year. “It will look even more spectacular,” said Tom Shuster, director of the

Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. Nearly one million lights will be illuminated at the conclusion of the opening ceremony, brightening the uptown park. More than 100 glittering and animated displays will be lit as well, marking the official start to Winterfest of Lights. Santa is scheduled to make a grand entrance to the ceremony by horse and carriage, before heading to his house inside a heated tent, where he will greet children and adults and listen as they share their Christmas wish lists. After Santa arrives, visitors will be able to take a free train ride through the illuminated village. “A lot of local families come on opening night and come back throughout the season and bring friends and family,” Shuster said. Winterfest of Lights has become a tradition for families. Many visit each year to take the guided open-air tour through the

park accompanied by holiday music. Some existing displays have been refurbished and upgraded this year, and many of the lights have been replaced with LED bulbs. New light displays have been added as well, including a tornado that will be incorporated into the Wizard of Oz Emerald City scene. A group of private donors also purchased a Happy Hanukkah display and Menorah. In the downtown Ocean City area, a 14-foot wreath will hang on the Worcester Street water tower. Two wreaths will illuminate the Boardwalk arch on North Division Street and lights will also adorn the Sunset Park tower. Crews began unpacking displays from trailers and setting up the winter wonderland in mid-September. There was no damage from Hurricane Sandy to displays set prior to the storm.

Turkey talk: will microwavable birds make it to Thanksgiving? SENIOR SLANT

With so many smart women about, could become reality IRISH KEMP ■ Contributing Writer PHOTO COURTESY IRISH KEMP

Locals get together at the St. Andrews Center.

PHOTO COURTESY IRISH KEMP

Knights of Columbus members smile for camera at the organization’s meeting hall.

(Nov. 9, 2012) H’mmm! What comes first, the turkey or the tree? Hard to overlook election year with all the turkeys running around these days. Won’t it be great sitting down at the table with the only turkey in the room incapable of opening his mouth? Memories of getting up before sunrise to start the turkey kinda’ rattle the brain. Are there microwaved birds in our future? With so many smart women around, maybe some of the turkeys running around with loose lips, goose will be cooked on Election Day. Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Most seniors are well aware they can’t take it with them. If you try, the chances of it all going up in smoke are a hundred fold. Give as long as you live and bask in the feel-good feeling. During the holiday season, no matter the age, our town is full of wonderful ways to share your good fortune with others less fortunate. It could be a hundred fold investment, as in accidentally saving your soul or the soul of somebody

less fortunate. Oh, how I love those brief, yet informative and fun Delmarva IrishAmerican Club meetings. Many thanks to the mike-less “unflappable” Dennis Roarty. Fun and fundraising are truly what this club is all about. For membership information, call Fran Kelly at 410-250-3361. Meeting, greeting, tweeting or just out skeetering about, I found Rob and Carol Robinson, Dot Healey, Mike and Fran Kelly, Maureen Pinnix, Ray and Carlee Archer, Helen Subkowiak, George and Joan Saur, the Dares, Joan DeMarco, Rita Valerno and Bill and Ceil Clark. Life on our shore is never a bore, especially if you’re a bingo fanatic. Bingo’s not my game, but if you moved here and love bingo, you’re in be-nign heaven. Folks of all ages attend these events and know the locations by heart. Not true that only old people play bingo. Socializing and fundraising all hours of the day and night probably won’t make us any healthier, wealthier or wiser, but it beats going to bed early and getting up early in my books.

Insider look at daily sodium intake might leave some, well, salty Fresh or frozen vegetables are always my preferred choice. I am not a fan of fruit juices unless they are freshly squeezed; however, I do love vegetable juices. That being said, you might want to check out the label for nutritional value before you indulge on a regular basis. One cup of vegetable juice can contain as much as 479 milligrams of sodium per cup. I stopped buying deli meats a long time ago. I find they are very expensive and again full of salt. I prefer to cook a turkey breast; the flavor is superior and much healthier. Did you know that two slices of salami contains 362 milligrams of sodium? By the time one adds mustard and mayonnaise, the sodium figures are much higher. While we are on the subject of condiments, mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, etc. are packed with salt. The next time you pull up through a drivethru of a fast food restaurant, just remember one little packet of ketchup contains 110 milligrams of sodium. Another salt-shocker is cereal. Some brands of raisin bran contain as much as 250 milligrams of sodium per cup of cereal. When one is scrutinizing the aisle of cereals at your local grocery store, you do not deem that sodium can be an issue in “healthy” cereals. I have saved the best for last: guess

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Canned, frozen foods and condiments among culprits DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (Nov. 9, 2012) Sodium is essential for fluid balance, muscle strength and nerve function. U.S. guidelines recommend less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day, which is equivalent to 1 teaspoon. But the saltshaker might not be the culprit. Read the labels before one purchases food items; you might be in for a surprise. Following are examples of foods that are particularly high in sodium. Modern technology has perfected the art of “frozen dinners,” but this convenience also provides a tremendous amount of sodium. A 5-ounce frozen turkey and gravy dinner contains 787 milligrams of sodium. Unless you plan to take a two-hour spinning class, my suggestion is to find an alternative meal. Canned vegetables have never fancied my palate for several reasons. I find the taste to be very lacking and the texture to be soft and unappealing. It has also been a known fact that canned vegetables are very high in sodium. Depending on the brand, one cup of creamed, canned corn can contain as much as 730 milligrams of sodium.

what is the No.1 source of sodium consumption in the American diet? If one guessed bread, you are correct. According to an article, “Beware: Hidden Fast Food Traps,” one 6-inch Roasted Garlic loaf from Subway has 1,260 milligrams of sodium. That is equivalent to 14 strips of bacon! I am the first to admit I love salt, but my purpose is to encourage you to read the label. It is no time like the present to become an educated consumer; your health is well worth it. Cold weather is here and memories of homemade apple butter makes my mouth water. Following is a simple recipe, but it does take time. However, the cooking process of a crockpot allows one to focus on other matters while the flavors slowly develop. Enjoy! Apple Butter 5 pounds apples (tart and tangy) peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch chunks 2 cups apple cider 1 cup sugar (sifted) 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar zest and juice of 1 lemon 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2/3 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 2/3 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon ground allspice 1 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees and

bake the apple chunks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about 20 minutes. Transfer the apples and any juices to a slow cooker. 2. Add the remaining ingredients and thoroughly mix. Place lid on cooker, turn heat on low and cook for 10 hours. 3. Remove lid, stir and turn heat to high and cook for an additional 2 to 3 hours. 4. Turn off the crock pot and puree apple mixture. 5. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Secret Ingredient: Discretion. “Discretion is the perfection of reason, and a guide to us in all the duties of life” … Sir Walter Scott.

Children may write letters to Santa, visit him at park 11 event. “I thought everything went smoothly and the response was outstanding from people who came,” Shuster said after last year’s Winterfest of Lights festival wrapped up. Winterfest of Lights has received many accolades over the years. In 2011, it once again made the list as one of the Top 100 Events in North America by the American Bus Association. The list includes the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. The festival has also been voted “Maryland’s Finest Holiday Tradition” by Maryland Life Magazine. The Ocean City attraction was ranked No. 1 in 2008, on the Professional Travel Guide Editor’s Top 10 of the nation’s largest and best holiday lights displays. And in 2006, Winterfest of Lights was No. 2 in the country in the “America Online City Guide’s Top 11 Lighting Displays.” The Disney-MGM Studios display in Orlando, Fla. topped the list. Winterfest of Lights runs nightly through Jan. 1. To celebrate Winterfest of Lights’ 20th anniversary, there will be a fireworks display at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Hours of operation are 5:30-9:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 5:3010:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The cost to ride the train is $5 for those 12 years of age and older. Children 11 and younger ride for free. For more information, call the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department at 410-250-0125 or visit www.ococean.com.

out for the Winterfest of Lights displays each year in order to keep it new and fresh for riders. It also challenges riders to find their favorite display in a new location. Some of the displays people will see at Northside Park this year include the 12 Days of Christmas, Santa, his sleigh and eight flying reindeer, fairy tale characters, toy soldiers, crabs, marlins, “Jaws,” a penguin village and dinosaurs and a huge poinsettia wreath of candy canes. The heated tent at Winterfest will keep visitors warm as they listen to music and wait for the Boardwalk trams to take them through the enchanted park of lights. The tent will be home to the Winterfest Village, where visitors can find Yukon Cornelius’ Gift Shop filled with ornaments, stocking stuffers, souvenirs and holiday gifts. Santa will be at his house nightly and available for pictures with children until Dec. 23. Children can also write a letter to Santa and slip it in his mailbox. A hot chocolate shop will offer cocoa and coffee. Shuster describes Winterfest of Lights as a “complete holiday experience” that families can enjoy together. “It’s like going on a ride at Disney World, but you’re seeing all Christmas lights at Northside Park,” he said. The 125th Street displays were viewed by 107,405 people last year, which broke the previous attendance record of 93,937, set in 2001. The trains took guests through the park 46 nights during the 19th annual event last year. An average of

Doug and Aimee Rupple and their daughter, Lexi, visit with Santa last year at Northside Park.

2,335 people rode the train each night. The overall total was an increase from the 84,230 passengers who took the 12minute ride the year before when Winterfest of Lights was open for 44 days. Attendance during the final weekend of the 19th annual event was strong, with 4,697 riders on Dec. 30, 4,251 on New Year’s Eve, and 1,925 passengers on the last night, New Year’s Day. Annually, the highest attendance is generally Thanksgiving weekend. During the four-day holiday, Nov. 24-27, mild temperatures likely played a part in attracting 20,424 riders to the park. The biggest night overall was Saturday, Nov. 26, with 8,213 passengers. The evening before had the second-highest total, with 7,234 guests viewing the displays. Not only was overall ridership up, but revenue also increased from the year before. Total revenue generated during the 2011-12 festival was $512,934, an increase from $367,069 garnered during the 2010-
