Fatal collision on Route 113 being reviewed Teen killed, brother injured in crash involving trooper NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Nov. 15, 2013) Maryland State Police continue to investigate the fatal collision in Berlin last Friday that occurred when two teenaged brothers crossed Route 113 into the path of a state trooper’s patrol car. The collision killed a 16-year-old boy and seriously injured his brother. The state trooper, Nicholas Hager, 21, was driving his unmarked police car on routine patrol on Route 113 heading north approaching Bay Street at about 8 p.m. when two brothers started crossing the highway from east to west. They ran directly into the path of Hager’s patrol car, according to Maryland State Police. Although Hager tried to take evasive action to avoid hitting the boys, he was unable to avoid striking both of them. Immediately, he called for emergency medical services and started providing emergency care to both boys. Tymeir D. Dennis, 16, was taken by ambulance to Atlantic General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Tymeir had been a junior at Stephen Decatur High School and he also attended Worcester Technical High School. Tymeir brother, Tyheym D. Bowen, 17, was taken by ambulance to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and then flown by helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Because of severe injuries, his

We want you! Council to help military vets gain employment Hiring policy would give veterans preference when equal to other applicants CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Nov. 15, 2013) Ocean City’s Mayor and City Council discussed a policy that would help veterans gain employment in city positions during their Nov. 12 meeting. Under the veterans’ preference policy, the city would hire eligible veterans when their qualifications are “substantially equal” to non-veterans in the most qualified pool of applications — a condition that would extend to spouses of disabled veterans, too. “Veterans’ hiring policy might be a better terminology for it,” said Human Resources Director Wayne Evans, who gave the presentation. Though the federal government has a veterans’ preference program, administered through a veterans’ exam, many states, including Maryland, do not. Ocean City’s program would be voluntary and subject to adverse impact analysis by the U.S. Equal Employment

Opportunity Commission. A major issue that arises in veterans’ preference policies is that they “operate overwhelmingly to the advantage of men,” Evans said. “If you’re going to have a veterans’ preference program, you need to be able to determine that it’s not having an adverse effect on the employment of women in the workplace.” Council Member Dennis Dare, who requested the policy be set in motion last spring, said that problem is shrinking, however. “Women have been integrated into the military in all phases,” Dare said. “I think that condition should be self-correcting, if you will, and that concern… is not an issue as much as it was at one time.” Another hitch with veterans’ preference policies is adding the infrastructure to administer veterans’ exams, which could add costs to the hiring process and disadvantaged better-qualified applicants, Evans said. However, the city is considering several alternatives to the exam-based policy. Those are extending the city’s outreach to veterans, by advertising open positions on veterans’ job boards, for example; granting interviews to all qualiSee VET on Page 4A

16, and his brother Tyheim Bowen, 18, both of Berlin were struck crossing Route 113 by a car driven by Maryland State Police Trooper Nicholas Hager, 21, a one-year veteran assigned to the Berlin Barrack.  The brothers were the sons of Quintin Dennis, Jr. and Tynise Bowen, both of Berlin. Tymeir Dennis died from his injuries at AGH. He was a student at Stephen Decatur High School and the HVAC Program at Worcester Technical High School in Newark, according to an obituary posted by the Lewis N. Watson Funeral Home in Salisbury. He was employed by Atlantic Stand in Ocean City as a cook, it said. Tymeir’s great aunt Dr. Roxie Den-

nis, president of the Worcester County Branch of the NAACP, refrained from speaking specifically about the accident during an interview on Nov. 13, but did agree to discuss the immediate aftermath of the accident and the youths involved. Dennis noted that Tymeir was an enterprising young man who aspired to be a commercial truck driver, like his grandfather and uncle, who each own trucking businesses. She said for the past two summers Tymeir worked at the Atlantic Stand in Ocean City in order to earn enough money to purchase his “dream car,” a Lincoln LS. Dennis recalled Tymeir’s pride at

Hager, who has been with the Maryland State Police and assigned to the Berlin barrack for just one year, was taken by Maryland State Police personnel to Atlantic General Hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered during the crash.

conducted by the Maryland State Police Crash Team. The brothers had reportedly been talking to their mother, who was seated in a vehicle, before stepping out into the highway and getting struck. The fatal crash led Berlin Councilwoman Lisa Hall to again call for marked crosswalks at that Bay Street and Route 113 intersection as well as at Old Ocean City Boulevard and Route 113. Hall also wants the speed limit re-

duced and enforced. Route 113, she said, is a major corridor for traveling up and down Route 113, but it also goes directly through the town of Berlin and is a major safety issue for residents. Hall wanted remedies sooner rather than later. She want the State Highway Administration to address what she calls an unsafe situation as soon as possible. She also said should would not vote on anything walkable/bikeable in the town until walking bridges are constructed across Route 113 at Bay Street. She also wants lights at the intersection where the fatal collision occurred and a countdown light for pedestrians at the Route 113’s intersections with Bay Street and Old Ocean City Boulevard. “I have been asking for a countdown crosswalk for years,” she said Tuesday.

Vet policy ‘another way to say that Ocean City is interested’ fied veterans who apply for jobs; and tracking veteran applications and job placement. These would help meet the city’s goal to employ veterans while incurring minimal costs and following laws, Evans said. He was not sure how many veterans the city had hired recently, but estimated it was “in the neighborhood of… 20 positions.” The veterans’ preference program would recognize veterans, expand the town’s applicant pool and create employment opportunities for many who are entering or re-entering the workforce, Evans said. “We’re welcoming this program and also welcoming veterans to come to our town,” Council Member Margaret Pillas said, calling the policy “just another way to say that Ocean City’s interested.”

The car now sits in Tymeir’s grandmother’s driveway, she said. According to Dennis, although Tymeir’s older brother Tyheim survived the accident, he remains in critical condition at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. As a result of the accident, one of Tyheim’s legs had to be amputated and he is at risk for losing the other as well, she said. His pelvis was crushed, and she added, Tyheim had been unconscious and was unaware that his brother had died. Another heartrending moment for the family, Dennis said, came when Tyheim was told about his injuries and his brother’s death. “He screamed, and screamed, and screamed,” she said. Tyheim had turned 18 three days earlier, Tuesday, Nov. 5. Dennis said at this point in time, the family needed time to heal. But she wanted the public to know the brothers were good youths with loving parents, who were attentive and caring. “We want the community to come together in prayer,” she said.

Dennis said the family had received no correspondence from the Maryland State Police, at press time. She said the owner of the Atlantic Stand, Tymeir’s employer, had offered condolences to

Brittingham also read a statement from Williams that the town would make a formal request to the State Highway Administration “to study the intersection of U.S. 113 and Bay Street (MD 376) to ask them to determine if either additional highway lighting, or a Pedestrian Countdown signal and related markings, are warranted at the intersection as a result of Friday evening’s tragic accident.” Williams added the request would also call for determining whether additional lighting was warranted, at the crossover on US 113, just South of Bay Street that serves the main entrance to Decatur Farm.

Overhaul of aging A/V system also in works for meeting room trances to City Hall, McGean noted, so that select employees can come in afterhours. Besides preventing other users from walking in on sensitive discussions, the locks will also provide some level of physical security. “It’s just that, especially at night, it’s kind of unnerving to be in that little room with only two exits and very narrow hallways,” noted Council Secretary Mary Knight. “There’s nothing specifically that caused us to want to [put in locks],” Knight said. “I guess you could say reading the news these days caused it.” In August of this year, three people were killed at a meeting of the Ross Township Supervisors in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, when a man angry about the condemnation of his property opened fire. Additional security in the council’s meeting space has been discussed for the last five years, City Clerk Kelly Allmond said, since the 2008 shooting in Kirkwood, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. A man who had a long-standing history of lawsuits against the town killed six people, all of them government officials, at a city council meeting.

McGean said the additional security measures are relatively simple and inexpensive to do, since the core of the cardlock system is already in place. “Since we already have the guts in the building, it’s not really a big deal,” he said. The city is also looking into improving the audio and video system used to record public meetings, as well as the computer interface used for tracking votes and giving presentations. “We’re starting to talk to some vendors, but it’s pretty preliminary,” McGean said. The major improvements he expects, McGean said, would be the replacement of projectors and pull-down screens with LCD monitors, as well as more modern cameras and microphones able to capture sounds and images at higher quality. The current setup, as can be seen when viewing council meetings on TV or on online, has been heavily outdated since it was installed during the 1999 City Hall renovation. “It’s sort of a double-edged sword. If you get too complicated with it, you have to hire a person just to run it,” McGean said. “We’ll see how far we want to go with it.”

City grants give claws to cat management despite county objection Feline control groups get town allocations in spite of conflict with health dept. ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Nov. 15, 2013) City Council voted this week to approve three budget appropriations that have been in limbo since the start of the fiscal year, due to funding issues with the county.

We’ve Moved!

Jayne’s Reliable furniture & sundries

302.927.0049

The town will be issuing grants of $1,500 and $2,500, respectively, to Delmarva Cat Connection and Town Cats. Both groups work to control the population of feral cats within Ocean City and Worcester County. However, the county had requested that the city make its grant funding of the groups conditional upon adherence to the county health department’s policies for cat management. Philosophical differences on the issue have reportedly been a bone of contention between the private advocacy groups and county officials. “The organizations were unable to obtain compliance because the county was not in favor of their cat management program,” City Manager David Recor told council. “Minus that end, we were unable to enter into an MOU [memorandum of understanding].” “But the organizations would still like to receive the small appropriations we had for them, so we’re asking for reconsideration,” Recor said. The issue is over the cat groups’ practice of the management strategy known as trap-neuter-return [TNR]. Under such a program, feral cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, given a rabies shot, and then returned to the locale where they were trapped. This establishes colonies of feral cats who do not spread disease or reproduce, and occupy a par-

ticular ecological niche as predators that prevent more cats or other feral animals from moving in. However, given the county’s hard-line stance against rabies, it does not endorse TNR unless there is some record that the cats are being updated on their vaccinations. “My understanding is that they [the county] want constant follow-up shots on these cats. They would have to be retrapped yearly...in order for the county to approve the program,” said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. The alternative, if follow-up is not possible, would be to trap and kill the cats. But TNR advocates maintain that more cats will simply migrate in to replace them, and the only way to stop chasing one’s tail, so to speak, is to maintain a controlled population. “The county is very backwards in their thinking,” said Susan Coleman of Delmarva Cat Connection. “They get a call, and they immediately go out and euthanize the cat. Which makes no sense, because there will always be one to take its place.” Coleman noted that, even with the massive volume discount her group receives from veterinarians, it still costs $45 per cat to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. “$1,500 from the city means 30 more cats we can control,” she said.

Council also approved on Tuesday of a $14,333 grant to the CRICKET Center, a non-profit group that assists local law enforcement and social services agencies with child abuse cases. The town’s grant to CRICKET was originally written into the budget as a matching grant to a county allocation. The county eliminated many of its new appropriations this year due to budget constraints, leaving the city to decide if it wanted to make an independent allocation. “I find it unconscionable on the part of the County Commissioners that they would not fund a child advocacy group,” said Councilman Doug Cymek. “I think the issue was that it was quite a large appropriation for a new charity,” said Councilman Brent Ashley. “But that being said, they do a wonderful job and certainly deserve our help.” Ashley had suggested previously that, if the council was to not go forward with the CRICKET grant, the money be put toward funding the municipal skate park, which was in danger of partial closure due to employee hour restrictions induced by insurance reform. City Manager David Recor confirmed that skate park funding had been secured for the remainder of the fiscal year. “We can easily allow for both. We didn’t find it necessary to have a quid pro quo on that,” Recor said.

Council questions SHA on bridge priorities, 94th Street signal City would prefer Route 90 expansion be finished before Route 50 rebuild ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) Amongst a myriad of issues and questions raised at this week’s meeting with the State Highway Administration, city officials were particularly concerned with the priority being given to the Route 90 bridge, as well as traffic delays seen this past summer at 94th Street. Although the city has long expressed a desire for the state to improve both the Route 90 and Route 50 spans, the city has recently submitted its opinion that widening of the Route 90 bridge should be completed before the Route 50 bridge is rebuilt. Due to space constraints, no traffic could flow through downtown Ocean City’s access point during the reconstruction. If that were to happen, it would be preferable to already have increased traffic flow in place further north, so that downtown congestion would not cripple the resort. “I’ll make the argument…that the Route 90 bridge should be ahead of repairs to the Route 50 bridge,” said Coun-

cilman Dennis Dare. “Just because there’s not going to be access over the bridge while that’s being constructed, and two lanes out over Ocean City at any time isn’t acceptable.” However, although Mayor Rick Meehan had submitted a request to the state and county regarding the prioritization, SHA District Engineer Donnie Drewer said that the Route 90 work was not a top priority as far as the state was concerned. “For it to get more attention, it needs to be included in the Worcester County priority letter,” Drewer said. “What you need to do is get the Worcester County Commissioners and elected officials to sign off on that.” Currently, Drewer said, the state lists the top three priority projects in Worcester as being improvements to Route 113,

Route 589, and then the Route 50 bridge. “Where it [Route 90] is in that hierarchy, I’m not really sure,” Drewer said. Federal highway authorities, Drewer noted, have already approved plans for a new drawbridge to be built parallel to the existing one. This would be the key element of any future replacement of the bridge. But the current structure still has 15 to 20 years of life left in it, the state estimates. “That’s still the message. We’re going to keep the existing bridge in as good a condition as we can for as long as we can,” Drewer said. Officials also pressed Drewer and Assistant District Engineer Ken Cimino over timing the signal a 94th Street and Coastal Highway. At the beginning of the summer, the SHA had altered the signal

to give additional lead time for crossing pedestrians, as well as separate timing for turning traffic. But with these safety improvements came significant delays in north-south traffic, with backups reported on Coastal Highway. “From about June 30 we started to receive complaints,” Cimino said. He subsequently lowered the backup threshold on the signals, causing them to increase north-south green time sooner if a line of cars was detected. However, this has appeared to improve, but not entirely remedy, he situation.

Horseback riding ‘back in the saddle’ before Rec and Parks paying permit holders. The new request would commercialize beach riding, providing horses “for rent” on Ocean City’s shoreline for purposes that could include riding lessons, guided rides, school and community programs and therapeutic riding. City Council Member Dennis Dare noted that beach riding “hadn’t really been that popular” in the past, with no permits issued last year and less than 10 issued in 2011. City Manager David Recor suggested bumping up the dates on the RFP to January 2014, rather than November 2014, to get the program started this winter. Council President Lloyd Martin’s suggestion was to “give the public plenty of notice” as the RFP progresses. The committee will forward the RFP to City Solicitor Guy Ayres for approval and to the

New request would allow vendors on Ocean City beach during off season CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) With public backlash against a proposal to allow surf fishing vehicles on the beach still fresh, committee members broached the issue of commercialized horseback riding on Ocean City’s beach at the city’s Recreation and Parks Committee meeting on Tuesday. The request for proposal is different from the measure passed by the city council in 2011, which allowed horseback riding on the beach from 27th Street to the inlet from Nov. 1 to March 30 for

city council for its opinion. With an ever-growing list of events during the summer season, the committee also discussed double- and tripleloading some weekends with events in 2014. Promoters of the popular OC Air Show are requesting to hold the annual event June 14-15 next summer, the same weekend as Arts Alive and Wine in the Park, Rec and Parks Superintendent of Special Events Frank Miller said. The move could help the city “wean” itself off the Air Show, Miller said. “From our perspective, I’m fine with it being the 14th and the 15th.” Other concerns about the date arose, however, including parking conflicts at the 41st Street convention center due to an overlap with the annual Maryland State Firemen’s Association Convention

and Conference in town June 14-20 and a potential overlap with the start of the Dew Tour setup. The Harrison Group, which owns 10 resort hotels, will work with the city on whatever dates it chooses, Miller said. Ocean City Air Show Director of Sponsorship and Hospitality Sales Steven Webster is expected to file the private events application with the Rec and Parks department this week. It will go to the city council for approval by the end of December or early January, Miller said. Springfest 2015 is slated to coincide with Mother’s Day on May 10, but that shouldn’t be a problem, based on committee discussions. Susan Jones, director of the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, and Melanie Pursel, director of the Chamber of Commerce, said “they would be willing to support — and their board members would be willing to support — the idea of doing an overall Mother’s Day promotion to go along with Springfest 2015,” city Private Events Coordinator Lisa Mitchell said. She emailed 250 Springfest vendors, 57 of which responded, with “mainly positive” feedback about the date. It will go to City Council for approval. Finally, Ocean City Downtown Association Board Member Nancy Howard brought attendance at this year’s Drive in Disguise to the committee’s attention, hoping to improve next year’s event on the Boardwalk. The third annual Drive in Disguise brought 42 cars with vintage Ocean City license plates to the boards Oct. 19, the same day as the Making Strides Against Cancer run and Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade, Howard said. “We were just realizing that people can’t be in two places at one time.” “I think there’s a lot of opportunity with Drive in Disguise,” Miller said. He suggested packaging several “microevents” together, like a pumpkin carving contest in conjunction with the Boardwalk drive. “It could turn that weekend into a great weekend for the Boardwalk merchants,” City Council Member Joe Mitrecic said. Howard suggested Recreation and Parks designate a person to help orchestrate the larger event and communicate with event organizers, an idea the committee will consider.

Five years handed down for stealing from grandma

NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) A 42-year-old former Ocean Pines resident was sentenced last week to five years in prison because she stole money from her grandmother. Jennifer Denise Brown lived in Ocean Pines with her grandmother and uncle at the time of the thefts last winter. Her address changed to that of a shelter. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crimes came to light in January when her uncle told police that a bank notified him that numerous withdraws had been made from his 85-yearold motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account. Someone had used the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debit card from Nov. 29, 2012 through Dec. 1, 2012. At various locations inside and outside of Ocean Pines, someone had withdrawn $2,902.46. The original debit card had been lost and was replaced with a new one, which was sent to the grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address, See BROWN on Page 14A

Additional transactions were made on Nov. 29 at Shore Stop on Route 589 for $200, at Food Lion in Pennington Commons for $200 and at Ho Feng Garden in Pennington Commons for $7.63. On Nov. 30, the debit card was used at the 7-Eleven on Route 589 for $200, at the Bank of Ocean City on William Street in Berlin for $100, and later that same day, for $200.

During a Jan. 31 interview at the Ocean Pines Police Department, Jennifer Brown said her grandmother had authorized her to use the debit card for repairs to her vehicle. Her grandmother gave her the debit card for that reason, she told police. She also said her neighbor did all of the vehicle’s repairs and he would only accept cash for his work. She said the repairs cost $1,100; she was unable to explain where the remaining $1,800 was spent. While Brown was being interviewed, police contacted the neighbor, who told them he had never worked on her vehicle. Brown then said she had gotten carried away with using the debit card and she was wrong to have done that. She

said she had withdrawn too much money. A female acquaintance, who was in the police lobby during the interview, told police that she had paid for repairs to Brown’s vehicle. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill on Nov. 6, Brown pleaded not guilty to all charges against her. A jury found her guilty of scheming to steal from $1,000 to less than $10,000 and obtaining property valued at more than $500 from a vulnerable adult.

(Nov. 15, 2013) The 18-year-old Salisbury woman who struck and injured a young girl on Baltimore Avenue in June pleaded guilty Nov. 6 to failing to immediately stop at the scene of an accident involving serious bodily harm. The 6-year-old girl and her mother were in a marked crosswalk as they walked from east to west at 19th Street during the afternoon of June 1. Jasmine Shuman was driving south on Baltimore Avenue when she struck the child. She stopped, but then left the scene. An Ocean City police officer on foot patrol stopped her vehicle at North Division Street as she was about to drive over the Route 50 Bridge. Paramedics treated the child at the scene before she was flown to the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Shuman was charged with failure to immediately stop at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, failure of the driver involved in an accident to render reasonable assistance to the injured person, failure of the driver involved in a bodily injury accident to furnish required ID and license and additional traffic charges. In Snow Hill Circuit Court, Shuman pleaded guilty to the first charge after it was amended to include the word, “serious.” In exchange for her guilty plea, the Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office did not prosecute the other charges. Judge Thomas C. Groton ordered a pre-sentence investigation of Shuman.

Former OC restaurant worker gets prison sentence for stabbing

In an Alford plea, considered a guilty plea, the defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that the prosecution has sufficient evidence for a guilty verdict. “I believe you owe a debt of gratitude

to your lawyer,” Bloxom told Hudson. “You would have been found guilty of first-degree assault.” Earlier, Hudson had said he was sorry, sort of. “I’m sorry for his injuries and the time I took out of his life and mine as well,” Hudson told Bloxom. The victim’s ordeal continues. He will soon undergo surgery to repair a hernia. “It really affected me and my family,” the victim told the court. “I will have scars the rest of my life.” Hudson, who had worked as a cook at a pool bar at an upscale Ocean City hotel, will spend time in prison instead of making progress in his chosen career. A graduate of Snow Hill High School, where he was a top athlete, Hudson wrote in an online resume that he was seeking work in the culinary field.

(Nov. 15, 2013) Wails from Brandon Maurice Hudson’s mother could be heard in the courtroom Wednesday morning after she heard her son get sentenced to 10 years in prison for the April 11 stabbing of a man in Ocean City. She had run from the courtroom, but her loud screams penetrated the air. The mother believed her son was not guilty of the charges against him. “He said he didn’t have a knife that night,” she told Judge Richard Bloxom in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. “I ask you to think about the time you’re going to take away from his life. Just be lenient with him. Putting him in jail might change his disposition.” “I feel badly for her,” Judge Bloxom had told Hudson before passing the sentence. “You’ve lied to her.” Hudson’s mother, Bloxom said, “had placed, as most of us do, hopes and dreams on our children.” She would not have wanted her son, Brandon, to stab a man, but that is what he did outside the 26th Street 7-Eleven last April at about 2 a.m. after being at a bar. An argument that started inside the convenience store continued outside. The argument escalated and Hudson pulled out a pocketknife. He plunged it into a man’s abdomen, not once, but twice. The victim did not comprehend that he had been stabbed. Thinking that he had been punched, he returned to his home in north Ocean City, Deputy State’s Attorney Abigail Marsh said in court. Police had been called to the 7-Eleven because of the fight, but everyone involved had left before they arrived. About 30 minutes later, they were dispatched to north Ocean City, where they met with the victim, who was holding a rag over one of his two stab wounds. Those wounds, each approximately 3 inches deep, and a wound on his head were bleeding. He told police that a man had tried to kill him. Paramedics took the victim to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, where several staples were put in his head. He also had emergency surgery to repair his severed intestine. He spent seven days in the hospital and missed eight weeks of work. After being located in Berlin by police, who had broadcast a description of him, Hudson, a 24-year-old Snow Hill resident, denied being involved. Later during an interview at police headquarters in Ocean City, he said he had been carrying a knife in his pants pocket when the fight started. He said the knife came out of his pocket when he tripped over a

curb. He picked it up and stabbed the victim who was walking toward him. He walked away after dropping the knife in a gravel lot, where it was found later. Police charged Hudson with first- and second-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon with the intent to injure. In court, Judge Bloxom complimented Kristina Watkowski, Hudson’s public defender, on getting a very favorable plea bargain for her client. She was able to get the deadly weapon charge and the charge of first-degree assault, which is a felony and carries a possible sentence of 25 years in prison, dropped in exchange for Hudson’s Alford plea to second-degree assault, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years, which Bloxom imposed, although he suspended all but four years.

Public water and sewer could come to Route 50 businesses New retailers will need services; decision would curb single-site systems NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) After years of effort, new commercial properties along part of Route 50 are very likely to have public water and sewer. For years, the county has invested time and money directing commercial development to that corridor and now public water and sewer will enable more businesses to open and will also enable small businesses to cease using septic systems. New commercial businesses on the south side of the highway near Walmart

and Home Depot will need public water and sewer. The public services will help curb the proliferation, and potential expansion, of the existing small one-site systems. Both Walmart and Home Depot were on septic systems that failed. Last Thursday, the Worcester County Planning Commission voted to give a favorable recommendation to the Worcester County Commissioners for the requested expansion of the Riddle Farm (GlenRiddle) Service Area, located on the opposite side of the highway. That expansion would satisfy the need. The Riddle Farm Water Service Area expansion would include commercially zoned properties extending approximately one mile west from the Holly Grove Road/Samuel Bowen Boulevard intersection along Route 50. It would also include a couple of properties east of that intersection.

The expanded area would overlay the established Ocean Landings II sanitary area to accommodate additional intensive users on those properties. That sanitary areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited capacity makes the additional water and sewer capacity necessary to service large chain-type stores and retail â&#x20AC;&#x153;big boxâ&#x20AC;? stores that are planned. Commercial establishments that could be built include department stores, restaurants and retail stores. Water service will be made possible by the installation of a water main, crossing beneath Route 50, and tying into the existing water supply system. The proposed expansion of the service area does not require the expansion of the capabilities of the water treatment facilities for the Riddle Farm Water Service area.

public water service. In particular, Ocean Landings I, in front of Walmart, and Ocean Landings II, west of Home Depot, need the treatment capacity for build-out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This endeavor is to support development of those properties in close proximity to Riddle Farm,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Cropper, attorney representing applicant WGC EDU LLC operating at the behest of the county. The county would derive tax benefits, economic development and jobs for its citizens, but would not be paying for the expansion. That would be the task of WGC EDU LLC, which accepts the responsibility for the public sewer project. It has noting to do with the public water service project. The endeavor, Cropper said, took approximately six years to negotiate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To so if was difficult is an understatement,â&#x20AC;? he said. The eastern portion of the expanded area would be on the north side of Route 50, along Grays Corner Road, where approximately 75 small commercially zoned businesses on more than 20 parcels are located. Replacing the existing septic systems with public sewer service for those 75 or so businesses will improve water quality, according to county staff. The design for providing the public sewer service includes a 50,000-gallonper-day pump station and force main, crossing beneath Route 50 and tying into collection systems on the other side. The current discharge permitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual average flow of 197,750 gallons per day would increase by 80,000 gallons per day, for a new total of 277,750 gallons per day. This will increase the number of EDU (equivalent dwelling units or the amount of sewer treatment used for one dwelling) from 719 to 986, an increase of 267 EDUs. Those additional EDUs will serve the mapped commercial areas. To dispose of the treated effluent, additional golf holes at Man of War and War Admiral golf courses at GlenRiddle will be spray-irrigated. The existing commercial properties and the new commercial properties to get public sewer service across from Riddle Farm and west of the Route 50/Samuel Bowen Boulevard intersection are zoned C-3, the highway commercial district, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most intense commercial development designation intended to serve populations of 25,000 population or more. The properties to the east of that intersection are zoned C-2, general commercial district, intended to serve populations of 3,000 or more. Spiro Buas, who owns 8.5 acres of commercially zoned property contiguous to the southeast end of the area designated for public sewer, wants his property to be included. Cropper said it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;within my clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest to have as many properties as possible,â&#x20AC;? but county attorney Sonny Bloxom said the county wants the planning area to match the service area.

Jail safe, but new maximum security gates are needed NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) Because of a potentially dangerous situation at the Worcester County Jail, the county commissioners on Tuesday approved emergency repairs to its maximum security area. Security gates at the maximum security area of the Worcester County Jail are malfunctioning, allowing inmates to manipulate the locking mechanisms and open the security gates of their cells as well as cells of other inmates. The situation with the unreliable cell gates has existed during the past two months. “We are not using that unit at the moment,” Warden Garry Mumford told the Worcester County Commissioners on Tuesday. The gates in question are only in the maximum security section and have no effect on inmates being able to leave the jail. The jail remains secure. Two technicians experienced with such security gates were able to duplicate the inmates’ manipulation of the locking mechanisms and concluded that the 30-year-old devices were worn out. The parts, they said, were obsolete and impossible to find. They could be fabricated, but at a high cost. In addition, the locks incorporate devices that are not as secure as those currently available. The technicians recommended replacing the existing devices with modern retention retrofit sliding door operations. Mumford said he and county engineer Bill Bradshaw reviewed proposals submitted by both technicians. Because of the immediate need for repair, Mumford asked the commissioners to waive the standard bidding process and award the project to Jailcraft for its $110,720 proposal. Jailcraft recently replaced locking devices like Worcester’s at the Montgomery County Detention Center. The cells and area where the work will take place will be vacated while the work is taking place.

Plan will go to state if county approves Planning Commissioner Wayne Hartman said property owners “down the road” want public sewer service and Buas should be able to get it. “I don’t think we’re being equitable,” Hartman said. Bloxom said Buas could petition the county commissioners to be included in the area during an upcoming public hearing. If the commissioners amend the county’s comprehensive water and sewer plan as expected, the plan would then go to the state Department of Planning and the Maryland Department of the Environment would also review it.

Turville Creek Bridge safe for traffic, SHA says NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer





 









OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

Orange barriers line the eastern side of the bridge crossing Turville Creek in Taylorville.

(Nov. 15, 2013) Concerns about the safety of the Turville Creek Bridge are unfounded, according to the State Highway Administration. SHA District Engineer Donnie Drewer told the Worcester County Commissioners last week that such concerns are “most definitely” unwarranted. “We’re on top of it,” he said of the situation. That situation includes orange barriers on Route 589 along the eastern side of the bridge, which is in Taylorville, slightly north of the Casino at Ocean Downs. Some drivers may be unaware they are driving over a bridge, but the road goes over the creek, which   leads to the Isle of WightBay. The barriers have been there following the destructive force of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. The storms’ winds and rains eroded part of the land at the bridge site. During  the commissioners’   Nov. 5 meeting, Commissioner Judy Boggs voiced her concern. “I fear the weight of ice, snow and trucks might make it a dangerous place,” Boggs said. Drewer said rocks had been put in place, but they could not replace pilings.“We’re in the process now of getting a permit from MDE (Maryland Department of Environment,” Drewer said. Drewer added that he had no guess for the length of time it might take to obtain the permit, but there is no cause for alarm. “It’s safe,” he said. “It’s not going to erode anymore.”

Changes abound at J/R’s ‘The Place for Ribs’ on 131st Street Restaurant has new bar, spruced up look and menu following return of owner CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) J/R’s “The Place for Ribs” on 131st Street just finished some revamping, bringing an expanded sports bar, a new menu and a longtime owner back to the 30-year-old restaurant. “I guess the answer is ‘Jack is back,’” said owner of J/R’s the Place for Ribs Jack Hubberman, who returned to the restaurant last year after a four-year absence. Hubberman has been fronting some changes at J/R’s and said they have been met with customers’ approval. Last Wednesday, the restaurant held its grand opening party for its extended sports bar with around 250 people packing out the house enjoying food and drinks. “Everybody remarks how nice it looks, how grand it is for space, and they enjoy

it,” Hubberman said of the bar, which grew by nine and a half feet, almost a third of its original size. The idea to expand the bar came about a year ago, he said, when he noticed that customers needed more room. He teamed with Mitrecic Builders in mid-July and two months later, the bar was complete. “It worked out very nicely,” Hubberman said. “It doesn’t look like anything was added on. It looks like it was here the whole time.” “It’s definitely changed the look,” though, said J/R’s Manager Evelyn Halligan. The restaurant also added new tabletops, chairs, windows, more TVs and new dance floor. The look isn’t the only change at J/R’s, though, as managers and chefs also took the opportunity to revamp the menu. New items include steamed crabs, mussels, oysters — raw, baked and grilled — and clams casino. The new fried chicken recipe has “really taken off,” Hubberman said. “It’s probably one of the best fried chickens you’ll ever get.” More children’s dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, pizza and macaroni are also offered.

Some changes at rib eatery after almost 30 years restaurant is still in business, he said. Hubberman, who started working in restaurants at age 17 in Baltimore, came to Ocean City more than 30 years ago to demonstrate restaurant equipment. Taken by the area, he moved here and opened the Potato Shack on the Boardwalk between Second and Third streets in 1977. His Baltimore partner, Joe Colton, owned House of Pasta on the Boardwalk. “He said, ‘Jack, we’ve got to open up a rib house. Ocean City is crying for a rib house,” Hubberman said. “I said, ‘No, no,

They chose the name “J/R” for their wives, Jackie and Rosalie. “We did a nice job there,” Hubberman said, “and then we grew,” opening J/R’s second location at 131st Street in 1984. “It just kept on going,” he said. “I still love it here, after all these years.” Hubberman still has plans in the works for the restaurant, including putting up heavy sliding doors between the

Singles and first-time buyers stifled by lending standards REAL ESTATE REPORT

Dual income households favored in mortgage lends LAUREN BUNTING  Contributing Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) Singles and first-time buyers are being prevented from reaching their dreams of homeownership due to unnecessarily restrictive mortgage lending standards, according to the National Association of Realtors in their recent study of homebuyer profiles. This is despite the housing market showing a healthy recovery over the past two years. The 2013 National Association of Realtors® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers continues a long-running series of large national NAR surveys evaluating the demographics, preferences, motivations, plans and experiences of recent home buyers and sellers. The report series dates back to 1981, and results are representative of owner-occupants and do not include investors or vacation homes. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said tight credit continues to impact home buyer households. “Single home buyers have been suppressed for the past three

years by restrictive mortgage lending standards, which favor dual-income households who are more likely to have higher credit scores,” he said. “Not seen in this survey is the elevated level of investors in recent years. The housing recovery would have been much weaker without investors, who often purchase with cash.” The overall market share of single buyers declined from 32 percent in 2010 to 25 percent in both 2012 and 2013. In the years up through 2010, the market shares were stable, usually moving only one or two percentage points. “Given that mortgage interest rates are expected to gradually rise, we need greater access to credit for a sounder housing recovery. Affordability conditions remain favorable in much of the country, but consumers need access to safe and sound financing, particularly the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, and with low down payment options for first-time buyers,” Yun said. – Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTOR®with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Calvin B. Taylor Banking Co. earns recognition (Nov. 15, 2013) Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company of Berlin, has been recognized as one of the strongest banks in the nation by BAUERFINANCIAL of Coral Gables, Fla., the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm. BAUERFINANCIAL has been analyzing and rating the nation’s financial institutions since 1983 and Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company has earned its highest rating of 5 Stars for the most recent 93 quarters. The latest rating is based on June 30, 2013 financial data and indicates that Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company significantly exceeds all federal capital requirements and maintains a low level of delinquent loans, among other benchmarks. “A recent Gallup poll indicates that

customer confidence in the banking industry is beginning to come back. That confidence, no doubt, can be attributed to community banks like Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company, that hold to the principles of sound banking,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of the research firm. “These are the shining stars of the industry. Calvin B. Taylor Banking Company has been able to thrive without compromising its standards, and that’s commendable.” Having continuously earned a 5-Star rating for this length of time merits an even more elite distinction of being a “Sustained Superiority Bank.” Only 5 percent of the nation’s banks have earned Bauer’s top rating for so long and with such consistency.

Thomas Edward Schneider OCEAN CITYâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Thomas Edward Schneider, 67, of Ocean City, died on Sept. 18, 2013 at Coastal Hospice in Salisbury. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in January 2013. He worked most of his life with his parents, Paul G. and Virgina J. Schneider, of Schneider Seafood as a boat captain and CEO of the company. He grew up in Severna Park and went to college at Florida State, where he took three years of business studies. He loved fishing, football and found the Lord late in life. He was born into a Catholic family but really started searching in his 60s. His father asked him what he wanted to do: â&#x20AC;&#x153;finish college or become a boat captain.â&#x20AC;? Tom decided to go fishing, since he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;he would make more money.â&#x20AC;? He since had a strong desire to finish his college and get his degree in business. We prayed for a miracle but the Lord decided to take him home. Many people would have seen Tom coming or going to Pickles, Coins or The Poor House. He was searching for old friends from his earlier years in the Ocean City Beach Patrol. He was on the Ocean City Beach Patrol in the 1960s and had many stories to tell. He left behind his brother, Paul G. Schneider, of Annapolis, and three cousins: Darla, Donnie and Eddie, who we are unable to find in Florida. He also leaves behind his wife, Anne, and a daughter in Maryland and four grandchildren as well as two step-children, Jonathan and Elise, and three stepgrandchildren, Everett, Avi and Elizabeth. Tom was very proud of the fact that he could donate blood to the Red Cross down in Williamsburg, Va. He had an appetite for shrimp and lobster since his mother ran Ginnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crab Shack in Annapolis and New Smyrna Beach. He grew up from age 9 making crab cakes and steaming shrimp

and crabs, while he did his homework after school. His dad built the fishing boats and Tom and his crews went out to sea. He had an accident at sea during one tripâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;his boat was capsized by a rogue wave off the coast of North Carolina. Tom and his crew were hanging onto a piece of the boat for three days before the Coast Guard found them. They were OK, just â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little dehydrated.â&#x20AC;? His son, Tommy Jr., became a boat captain also just like his father, grandfather and great grandfather. He went to be with the Lord in May of 2012, maybe to go prepare a place for his father. A memorial service will be held on the beach in Ocean City between the pier and the inlet on Saturday, Nov. 16th at 10 a.m. We miss you Tommy. Our prayers are with you. If it rains, the ceremony will take place at Sonspot on Worcester Street between Baltimore Avenue and the Boardwalk, across from H20. Tom used to say Tommy was on Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fishing boat in Heaven with his father. The clouds have been beautiful, I know thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Heaven and I know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up there. Charles W. Sens OCEAN CITYâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Charles Warren Sens, passed away on Oct. 23, 2013 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury at the age of 91. Born on March 4, 1922 in Washington, D.C., he was the son of the late John Roy Sens, Sr. and Elsie Alberta Jenkins Sens. He is survived by his Charles Sens wife of 67 years, Lois Keeler Sens, and children; C. Warren Sens, Jr. of Hergiswil, Switzerland, Mark A. Sens, Paul N. Sens and his wife Annette, Roy D.

Ocean City Police Department warns area residents of scams (Nov. 15, 2013) The Ocean City Police Department is warning citizens of a current telephone scam targeting local Delmarva Power customers, particularly businesses. The scammer will claim to be calling from the Delmarva Power “Disconnection Center.” The scammer will explain that the victim’s power would be shut off unless a past due balance was paid. Victims are then instructed to buy a Greendot MoneyPak card and add the past due amount onto the card or asked to provide a credit card number. Citizens are reminded that Delmarva Power will not contact customers about late payments until first notifying the customer by mail. Citizens with information are asked to contact the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6610. The Ocean City Police Department is also warning citizens of a current mail scam targeting Ocean City area organi-

zations involving the delivery of “non-ordered” cell phones. These local organizations reported to have received packages delivered by UPS or Federal Express. These packages contained several cell phones that were not ordered by the victim. Shortly after the package arrived, victims reported receiving a telephone call from the scammer who identifies herself as an employee of Verizon.

Purchaser waives and releases the Released Parties from any and all claims the purchaser or its successors and assigns may have now or in the future may have relating to the condition of the property. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this provision was a negotiated part of the Contract of Sale and serves as an essential component of consideration for the same.

Further,

Decatur athletes earn Bayside Conf. and team awards LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Nov. 15, 2013) A number of Stephen Decatur High School athletes have been recognized for their performance during the fall sports season. Those Seahawks have been presented with Bayside Conference honors and/or team awards.

Stephen Decatur cross country athletes, from left, Alison Alvarado, Alex McKahan, Katie Hofman, Chloe FauntLeRoy, Meya Chilengi and Katie Collins, pictured with coaches Lauren Leighton and Jody Stigler, competed in the 3A state championship meet last Saturday at McDaniel College. Below, FauntLeRoy is followed by Collins during the race.

Seahawks compete in 3A Maryland XC meet last Saturday LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Nov. 15, 2013) Six Stephen Decatur cross country runners competed in the 3A state championship last Saturday at McDaniel College in Westminster. The Lady Seahawks advanced to the state meet after the team finished fifth overall out of nine schools participating in the 3A South Regional championship, Oct. 31, at Oak Ridge Park in Hughesville. It was the first time since 2006 an entire Decatur cross country team qualified for the 3A state meet, according Coach Jody Stigler. Sophomore Alison Alvarado was the first Seahawk to cross the finish line during the state competition. She placed 83rd overall (22:17.3). Senior Chloe FauntLeRoy ran to a 112th-place finish (23:22.1). She was followed closely by senior Katie Collins (114th, 23:22.6). Also representing Decatur was junior Meya Chilengi (135th, 24:49.2), senior Alex McKahan (141st, 25:05.4) and sophomore Katie Hofman (149th, 25:44.9). “For the first time being up there, I

think we did OK. Our times were good,” Stigler said. “Some of the girls said they thought they could have run a little faster. I think they were a little bit intimidated because of the (strong) competition.” Stigler said the McDaniel College course was more difficult than the regional course at Oak Ridge Park. There were also long, drawn out hills that the Seahawks were not used to, he said. “We don’t face that kind of competition or see those (challenging) courses all year,” Stigler said. “It was just an accomplishment for us to qualify because we haven’t done it in so long. I think our lack of experience at that level hurt us.” Stigler said this year was a good stepping stone for another state appearance in 2014.

Overall, Stigler said he was pleased with the cross country season. The boys’ and girls’ teams performed well during regular-season meets. Both squads placed fourth during the Oct. 23 Bayside Conference championship in Cambridge. The girls took fifth at regionals to advance to states while the boys’ team came up short in qualifying, with a seventhplace finish. Stigler said he will lose a few runners from each team to graduation, but a number of talented athletes will return to compete next season. A handful of athletes are also slated to participate in indoor track this winter. Pre-season practices are set to kick off today, Nov. 15.

• Cross country: Runners who placed top 15 in the boys’ and girls’ races during the Oct. 23 Bayside championship meet at Cambridge High School were named AllConference athletes. Sophomore Alison Alvarado crossed the finish line 15th overall in the girls’ race (21:24). “This was Alison’s first season running cross country, so it took her a little while to get used to the distance, but by the end of the season she was clearly our No. 1 runner,” Coach Jody Stigler said. “We will look for her to be a leader on our team for the upcoming track seasons and for cross country next year.” Senior Kevin Herbert placed 11th overall (17:30) in the boys’ competition. “Kevin was our most consistent runner this year for the boys. Kevin has a great sense of determination,” Stigler said. “Kevin was our leader by example all year. He was our hardest worker at practice day in and day out.” Junior Jake Gaddis followed two seconds behind Herbert at Baysides, to earn 12th place (17:32) and All-Conference honors. “Jake ran really well this year,” Stigler said. “We will be looking for Jake to lead the team next year. He is a great leader for the younger runners that we have on the team.” During the 3A South Regional championship, Oct. 31, at Oak Ridge Park in Hughesville, the top 15 boys’ and girls’ received All-Region honors. Alvarado placed ninth overall (22:17.91) and senior Katie Collins completed the race in 22:53.06, good for 13th place. Both girls earned regional recognition. “Katie was also in her first season of cross country after doing track for the past few years. She was consistently our No. 2 girl throughout the year,” Stigler said. “We will need her versatility this year for our track teams because she can basically do any event. She is an excellent pole vaulter and is an accomplished sprinter and jumper.” Stigler presented team awards to the following boys: Herbert (MVP), Gaddis See KING on Page 38A

• Field hockey: Senior Kacie Moore was named to the All-Conference Second Team. “Kacie’s ability to see the field and distribute the ball was instrumental in transitioning from the defensive to offensive side of the field,” said Coach Michelle Fluty. “She always puts forth her full effort and her aggression on the field is hard to be matched and will be greatly missed next year.” Honorable Mention accolades went to junior Mallory Rolleston and senior Cassidy Remmell. Fluty said Rolleston was one of the most consistent players on the team. As a midfielder she had the skills to distribute the ball to the forwards or to carry it up herself when necessary, Fluty said. “Her support of the forward line in front of her was instrumental in many goals scored this season,” she said. Remmell was the Seahawks’ leading scorer with six goals. Fluty said her speed and vocal nature on the field helped to lead the forward line. “Her aggressiveness on the field combined with her speed made her one of our most consistent players on the forward line. We will miss her in the middle next year,” Fluty said. Fluty gave team awards to: freshman Sara Mitrecic (Rookie of the Year), junior Jennah Lupiwok (Most Improved), Rolleston (Unsung Hero), senior captain Valerie Petsche (Sportsmanship) and junior Brittany Wangel (Coaches Award). • Girls’ soccer: Senior captain Liz Rougcher and junior Jillian Petito earned First Team AllConference distinction. Rougcher scored two goals and had

Junior Jillian Petito

three assists this season. Coach Misty Bunting said Rougcher is “undoubtedly one of the most intense and dedicated soccer players I’ve coached.” “Positioned defensively at center midfield, she was all over the field, shutting down the opposing teams’ top players,” Bunting added. Petito logged 18 goals and had eight assists this year. She was the No. 2 goal scorer behind senior captain Rebecca Lederman (25). Petito led the team in assists. She started the season at the midfield position and after five games, Bunting moved her to striker. “She was a scoring factor in 10 of our 13 games. She is an incredibly talented, composed player who has the ability to deliver the perfect ball behind the defense,” Bunting said. “In addition, she can place the ball in the goal like no other.” Second Team honors went to junior Alexis McDonough and Lederman. Junior Allison Beck and senior captain Rebecca Haskell took home Honorable Mention awards. Bunting presented team awards to: Haskell (Unsung Hero), Petito (MVP

midfield), Beck (MVP defense), Lederman (MVP offense), Rougcher (Team MVP), junior Jenna Leitgeb (Sportsmanship) and McDonough and junior Payton VanKirk (Coaches Awards).

• Boys’ soccer: Senior captain Jared King and Nick White, also a senior, scored spots on the First Team list. This was White’s second year named to the First Team. Coach Jamie Greenwood said White has come a long way since his freshman year. “He has gone from being a great defender (freshman and sophomore year) to a great forward (junior and senior year),” Greenwood said. “Nick loves to have the ball on his foot. He loves to have the opportunity to score the game-winning goal. This season Nick either scored or assisted 22 of our 44 goals.” King has made an impact since he walked onto the field two seasons ago, Greenwood said. He was rock solid in the backfield, Greenwood said, and very few players got by him. “He plays very hard, but under control,” he said. “This season he was the lone captain and did an outstanding job, both at practice and on the field (during games). He played every minute of every game. His work ethic is second to none.” Players earning Honorable Mention were: seniors Tyler Angelo, David Bernal-Clark, Zak Hoshino, Danny Beck and goalie Logan Thumma, juniors Corey Gwin and Evan Heim and freshman Alton Walker. For the third consecutive year, Greenwood was named Coach of the Year. Greenwood said he was honored that his fellow coaches think he is worthy of the title three years in a row. He said all of the credit goes to his players. “We (the coaching staff) give them the tools in practice and we merely put them on the field. They are the ones scoring the goals and winning the games,”

Senior Andrew Urban, left, and freshman Matt Kristick

Greenwood said. “SDHS has a long and proud tradition of winning and being one of the best in the Bayside Conference for almost 25 years now and players know that and want to contribute in any manner they can.” Greenwood said without Assistant Coach Mike Cericola (SDHS Class of 2007) and JV Coach Josh Horsman, the program would not be as successful. Greenwood has not yet announced his team’s award recipients.

• Golf: Senior captain Andrew Urban, freshman Matt Kristick and junior Danny Parker earned First Team honors. Out of 18 Bayside Conference schools and more than 100 golfers, Urban finished No. 1 with a 38.5-nine hole average. He is also the top golfer on this side of the Bay Bridge. “Andrew was our rock all season, consistently shooting right around par every match…Andrew was instrumental in all nine of our regular season first-place finishes,” Coach Jim Krall said. “He was also greatly responsible for our victories at the Bayside championship and district tournament, by once again leading by example shooting his characteristic low rounds. He earned his third trip in a row to the state tournament this year and made his way to the final championship round by shooting an impressive 81 on what I consider one of the toughest conditions the University of Maryland golf course could dish out.” Kristick finished the season ranked as the third-best golfer in the Bayside South (39-stroke average). He earned medalist honors in five matches this year, including the Bayside championship and the district tournament. Kristick made his state championship debut, where he finished tied for 14th place overall in the 3A/4A. “You all are looking at the most accomplished freshman I have ever had in

Greenwood named Coach of the Year for soccer, Krall for golf my 16 years of coaching. This kid is the real deal,” Krall said. Parker finished in the No. 5 spot in the conference (40.33 average). He made his first state tournament appearance this season. Krall said because of his dedication and passion for the sport, Parker took seven strokes off his nine-hole average in just one year. “He’s always been a great short game player, but this year he added length off the tee to make him a complete player,” Krall said.

Juniors Delaney Iacona and Brooks Holloway received Second Team accolades. They finished No. 7 and No. 8 respectively in the conference according to their averages (40.83 and 41.56) “Delaney Iacona seemed to take sportsmanship to the next level. You would be hard pressed to find a kinder, sweeter, more positive person out of 100-plus golfers in the Bayside Conference,” Krall said. “Every coach in the conference praised Delaney on her attitude and personality.” Iacona made her third trip to the state

tournament this year, while it was Holloway’s first time competing. “In the past, the Decatur golf team has been missing a strong fifth player to help us win matches, and this year Brooks really stepped up his game and became that solid player,” Krall said. Krall was named Coach of the Year. “It’s an honor to be selected Coach of the Year by fellow coaches in the Bayside Conference. It’s a shot in the arm that everyone enjoys receiving. However, my Assistant Coach, Don Furbay, should be recognized as well,” Krall said. “Together

we’ve built a program of competitive golf at Decatur and have the utmost respect for our players, who are committed and embrace our philosophies.” Team accolades were awarded to: Urban (MVP), Iacona (Sportsmanship), Parker (Most Improved), Kristick (Rookie of the Year) and Holloway (Coaches Award).

• Volleyball and Football: Recipients of Bayside Conference and team awards will be announced in the coming weeks.

Decatur football squad scores 42-7 victory over Snow Hill LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Nov. 15, 2013) The Stephen Decatur football team secured a spot in the 3A South Regional tournament semifinals with a 42-7 rout over the Snow Hill Eagles last Friday. The Seahawks were competing in their final game of the regular season without several starters, who are sidelined with injuries. Without those players, others were called upon to step up and get the job done and that was just what they did. “It was a nice win,” said Decatur Coach Bob Knox. “We played well. We were physical and we played hard.” Junior quarterback Justin Meekins hit Shawny’e Jones with a pass to put Decatur on the board. Snow Hill answered to closed out the first quarter with the teams even at 7-all. Knox said the Seahawks may have underestimated the Eagles in the first quarter, adding, “we can’t do that with anybody.” The coaching staff’s words spoken before the start of the second quarter must have clicked with the players as they turned up the pressure on the Eagles. Meekins carried the ball 60 yards into the end zone, followed by a senior Chase Sams’ touchdown. Meekins finished first-

half scoring and Decatur went into the break with a 28-7 lead. During halftime, Knox said the team discussed some defensive adjustments to implement in the second half. Those adjustment were successful as Decatur held its Worcester County rival scoreless. Sophomore Dryden Brous received the opening kick-off of the third quarter and scored. Junior Tyrie Adams tallied the Seahawks’ final touchdown of the game in the third quarter. With a 35-point lead, Knox put some JV players in during the fourth quarter to give them varsity game experience. “They held their own. I’m happy with what they did,” Knox said. Meekins totaled 90 yards on six carries. He was 3-for-6 passing for 92 yards. Sams rushed three times for 60 yards and Brous racked up 92 yards on seven carries. Adams recored 57 yards on eight rushes. Jones, a junior, had two catches for 80 yards. Sams made 13 tackles and Brous stopped seven Snow Hill players. Sophomore Gus Esham and freshman Eddie Zonnak each recorded six tackles. Decatur (7-3) ended the regular season on a five-game win streak. “Our kids are fighters and we never give up,” Knox said. “They’re like the En-

ergizer Bunny, they keep going and going. I’m so proud to coach these kids.” 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. Decatur was successful at earning a playoff berth. Decatur received the No. 3 seed in the 3A South Regional tournament. The Seahawks will play the No. 2 Lackey Chargers (8-2) in Indian Head, tonight, Nov. 15.

“They’re big, they’re fast and they’re athletic,” Knox said of the Chargers. “We need to be disciplined, not turn the ball over, play every play like its our last and be physical. We’ve especially got to be physical. We must be physical for 48 minutes.” The top-seeded Huntingtown Hurricanes (9-1) will battle the No. 4 Westlake Wolverine (6-4) on the same night in Huntingtown, Md. The winners will meet next Friday or Saturday, Nov. 22 or 23.

Funds raised to send OC squads to flag football tournament

SPORTS BRIEFS

Stearn solid performance

CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) Twenty teams competed on five sets of boards at last Saturday’s Cornholapalooza, a fundraiser to send two Ocean City flag football teams to the national championships in Kissimmee, Fla., in early 2014. The cornhole tournament at Hooters in West Ocean City raised $1,200 for the seven-man Eastside Mafia and four- and five-man Assassins teams, putting them closer to the $5,000 needed to attend the 43rd annual United States Flag & Touch Football League National Championships, Organizer and Assassins Team captain Kyle Swayngim said. “It’s a big undertaking,” said Eastside Mafia’s captain Ron Strickler. “We worked hard to get down there.” “It’s going to be a big portion of those funds,” Swayngim said of the fundraiser. To qualify for the championships, teams must win a tournament or pay to play, he said. The Eastside Mafia team has won the Ocean City Flag Football fall league championship for five years and the Assassins team has won the Ravens Beach Bash five-man flag football tournament for the past two years, though they came in second at the qualifying tournament in Bowie this year, Swayngim said. Last year, more than 300 teams competed in the national championships, with the Eastside Mafia finishing ninth, the Assassins four-man team finishing 17th and the Assassins five-man team pulling ninth in their divisions. Typically, the Ocean City teams have asked for sponsorship funds from the Greene Turtle, Bull on the Beach, Schell Brothers Delaware Home Builders and others to attend the championships. This year, however, they decided to do some fundraising, spearheaded by Swayngim, Strickler and teammate James Stewart. Word traveled through social media, flyers, word of mouth and newspapers leading up to Cornholapalooza. In addition to competing for the $200 top prize, won by Ralph and Chris from Milford, Del., entrants enjoyed a buffet included in the $50-per-team fee, drink specials, music, prizes, raffles and a 50/50. “It went really well. It was a success,” Strickler said. “They (businesses) all were more than generous to help us out… so we were able to raise a good bit of the money.” The funds will help cover housing, rental cars, travel and tournament fees for the 22 players going to the championships Jan. 17-19. “We like the competition. It’s just a good time to get together,” Strickler said. “Besides passing some of the time in the off season on the Eastern Shore, it gives us a place to put some of our energy, to keep fit,” added Swayngim. A Madden tournament fundraiser is set for Saturday, Nov. 30 at the ATL Bistro & See MADDEN on Page 42A

Town unites in wake of Friday’s Rt. 113 death Tuesday night was cold with a biting wind, the kind of weather that would suggest one stay within the warm comforts of home. Yet, finding a parking place behind or around Berlin Town Hall required some patience and parallel parking. It was just as difficult to find an empty seat in the crowded Town Council hearing room. Berlin’s citizenry had shown up in solidarity, saddened and concerned. On Friday, Nov. 8, Tymeir D. Dennis, a 16-year-old Stephen Decatur High School honor student, was one of two brothers hit by an unmarked state police car driven by Trooper Nicholas Hager on Route 113 in Berlin. Tyheim D. Bowen, Dennis’ teenage brother, was also hit and taken eventually to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. We learned from the council that some 63 accidents have happened along Route 113 since the year 2000. Yet nothing has been done. The high-speed pace of traffic continues. People came out in numbers to tell their elected officials and town administrators that something has to change. There is no safe way for a pedestrian to cross this stretch of highway. Often, citizens said, drivers “fly” through the stretch of road without any regard for the safety of citizens who call Berlin home. Enough. This occurs while politicians look to be elected to statewide office such as governor or attorney general. It is a time when our very governor Martin O’Malley is flirting with the possibility of a national run for president. The value of votes has to extend beyond Baltimore City, its suburbs and those of suburban Washington, D.C. Our votes, our concerns have value, equal value. We wish the governor, attorney general and even Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who is competing against Gansler for the Democrat nomination for governor, were in that Berlin room Tuesday night. The governor needs to step down from presidential canSee FAR on Page 46A

Small gesture has big impact when photo goes viral EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK PHIL JACOBS ■ Editor

Of all the hours spent learning from scripture, all the discussions held in one’s local house of worship and all of the discussion some have learned from our Biblical scholars, perhaps it was a man on a New York subway who taught us thoroughly. As the sage Hillel said: “That which is hateful to you, do not unto another: This is the whole Torah. The rest is commentary.” For those who don’t know, a man named Isaac Phil Jacobs Theil, 65, who was riding the Brooklyn bound Q train recently did not flinch for a second when a young black man wearing a hoodie used Theil’s shoulder as a pillow for a short snooze. As is always the case these days there was someone there who saw in it a photo opportunity, and soon the image of the black youth in the hoodie sleeping on the Jewish man’s shoulder went viral. It’s had millions of hits and likes on Facebook. “He must have had a long day, let him sleep,” Theil was quoted in Tabletmag.com saying to another

subway rider. In this day and age when the hoodie had become the symbol of Trayvon Martin’s death in Florida, and tension between people of different skin colors or backgrounds, Theil’s patience and compassion was exactly what we needed. Theil said he had no hidden agenda a couple of Thursdays ago when he let Garvey Dutes, a John Jay College student, doze off on his shoulder. Since then, then social media has been nothing but buzzing of this simple act of kindness. I was going to write an article about the event, picking up the quotes from Tablet and other sources. Use your favorite search engine and you can view the photo and find stories about the photo all over the social network. Instead of calling the requisite social commentators on the very meaning of Theil’s actions, I decided instead to take this man’s good deed to what I call the “front lines.” In this case, the front lines are a group of teens I meet with at a Baltimore area congregation. We meet for what is called “Emet,” the Hebrew word for truth. I really don’t teach these students, instead I often bring controversy to them and we talk about the appropriate response(s).

We’ve spoken to one another in this class over the years about many issues. Before last year’s referendums, we debated the need for a marriage equality act. We talked about the impact of casino gambling. In the above examples we talked about marriage, and we took seriously the sides that say it should always be between a man and a woman and many others who feel it should be available to any couple. On gambling, we discussed the collateral damage of betting such as addiction and ruined lives. Should anyone question Israel’s right to attack Iran and destroy its nuclear capability? Is the Arab “spring” really doing what it was supposed to do in the Middle East? Obamacare, the furloughing of federal workers, even what seems to be more and more of a conversation, mass shootings in schools, movie theaters and shopping centers that are making us all numb. Still, we talk about it. There were students in the class who were taken aback about Isaac Theil’s decision to allow this man to sleep on his shoulder. What stunned me the most were the words of one of my high school seniors, a girl who I have had in class for four years. She See ACTION on Page 45A

NOVEMBER 15, 2013 A number of people know that I have been doing a few minutes on Friday morning radio in recent years, offering a brief take on the local news for By Stewart IRIE Radio, 98.1 Dobson FM. What they don’t know, however, is that while I do have some broadcast experience, it ended on such a bad note that, up until this gig, I avoided radio at all costs. The infamous incident occurred decades ago during my stint as a utility infielder at a small station that also was tied to a cable TV operation. This combination allowed us to air a morning radio show and simultaneously send it out over the local cable channel. On this particular day, I was the television camera operator for a simulcast of “Potluck with Miss Betty,” in which Miss Betty would suspend her daily offering of incredibly filthy jokes to deliver an hour’s worth of recipes. Our director/engineer, Johnny B, meanwhile, was in the soundproof control room that looked out over the studio – take note of “soundproof” – running the TV/radio console. Just as Miss Betty was saying, “Take two eggs and …” there came from the control room an explosion of such magnitude that Miss Betty and I looked for cover only to see Johnny B, white as cornstarch, roll out the control room door in the smallest human ball ever formed outside of Cirque de Soleil. It’s difficult when a grown man cries, but that was what Johnny B was doing as he explained that he had reached under the console to jiggle a loose connection, grabbed the wrong thing and took about 20,000 angry volts, which not only lit him up like a night football game in Texas, but also caused his entire person to contract with such ferocity that it forced every ounce of air in his 200pound body to exit … all at once. Not to put too fine a point on it, but think a Boeing 747 taking off. “That was the explosion?” I asked. Still flopping around like a turtle on its back, Johnny B croaked that this was precisely the case. Miss Betty burst into a fit of giggles and suggested that Johnny B might have his gaskets checked, causing me to lose my composure as well, with neither of us realizing that we were still on the air. “Jeez,” I said, “we need to call the Guinness Book of World Records,” followed by something involving party balloons and tractor tires. My career ended that day when the station manager suggested that I return to print media, where I could benefit from editing. “The phone ringing in my office,” he said, “indicates that most listeners would prefer not to have a meatloaf recipe interrupted by maniacal laughter and “You’ve got to be *%$#@ me!” So, tune in Friday. I follow a written script.

OPINION 45A

Action ‘the way we are supposed to be’ EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK would tell you herself that she’s not necessarily the most religious teen on the planet. And there have been times when she’d rather text on her phone than listen to me go on and on about terrorism or religious continuity. Yet when she gets going about a topic, she gets GOING about the topic. This time, though, Dani’s quiet voice is what stunned us all. Without needing to shout it out, she simply asked the question. “Why?” she asked “Why what?” a classmate responded. “Why should this be such a big deal that it would go viral?” Dani wanted to know. “I mean isn’t this the way we are supposed to be to each other?” Question answered.

Editor, I’m not a big “letter writer/ complainer”, but after reading this article I felt compelled to at least offer a view of ACA that seems to be more in step with the real world than Mr. Jacobs’ opinion. I read a fair amount of news from a variety of publications and I haven’t seen anything remotely resembling positive news about the ACA. In fact, most of the press, including publications that back anything that Mr. Obama has on his agenda, are reporting more and more negative aspects of the ACA roll out. Indeed the latest reports are indicating that a number of Democrats are starting to distance themselves from the President as they see the ACA problems having a huge negative impact on their re-election chances.

When I asked her classmates what they would do if a young AfricanAmerican man in a hoodie rested his head on their shoulders, none of them felt comfortable enough to say yes they would. A couple joked that they wouldn’t let anyone rest their heads on their shoulders. Mr. Theil said he didn’t give it a “second thought.” Mr. Theil taught us what Hillel also said after talking about treating one’s neighbor as one would expect to be treated. “All the rest is commentary.” Mr. Theil in showing an act of kindness carried the full spiritual weight of loving, caring people we all know on his very shoulder. We should all have the opportunity to do the same. You’ll never know when someone will seek comfort there.

NOVEMBER 15, 2013

READERS’ FORUM ident AARP Chapter 1917 )is on a mission. One can feel it in his strong handshake and his confident, positive tone of voice”. Considering the position that AARP has been able to put itself in, any of us in his position would have the same hut spa! Perhaps, in another more informational interview, Mr. Norris might be willing to explain to Mr. Jacobs why AARP supported ACA with so much vigor when they knew that Mr. Obama was incorrect when he said everyone could keep their current policies and their current doctors. Perhaps he could also explain why AARP reportedly spent hundreds of thousands of dollars with lobbyists pushing for the passage of the ACA. Perhaps he could also report on how much money AARP expected to gain from selling “GAP” insurance to Medicare recipients for the GAP in coverage expanded and/or created under ACA. Lastly, the quote, “ACA is already making it easier for people to get, keep, and afford health care benefits.” Are you kidding me ? Who are we talking about ? Some of the six people that were able to sign up the first day ? Some of the thousands of people in California who lost their individual coverage policies ? Some of the people who are being offered policies under which part of their premiums are for care which they will never expect to use, and to add insult to injury, those premiums are higher than under their previous insurance carrier ? I hope and pray that the people who Continued from Page 45A

attend Mr. Norris’ forum ask the tough questions to get a truer picture of what the impact of ACA means for all of us and the real part that AARP plays in all of this as a money making business. Frank Kay Ocean City

Ataxia event participants thanked

Editor, The third Annual Ataxia Awareness Bingo in honor of Dana Simpson was held on Saturday, Sept. 28. Once again we had a successful event and want to thank everyone who participated in our efforts to raise funds for the National Ataxia Foundation. We greatly appreciated having our event at the Berlin Fire Hall. Sincere thanks goes to all our family and friends who volunteered in the kitchen and with the bingo. The local community was very generous with civic groups, churches, business owners and individuals donating to the event. The proceeds have been sent to the National Ataxia Foundation (www.naf.org) to fund research for this rare progressive neurological condition.

Far fewer votes, but we do count didacy dreams and hear the daunted dreams of Berlin’s families. Attorney Gen. Gansler was in a nearby South Bethany room to watch his son drink, but was nowhere in sight Tuesday night. Of course, that’s perhaps unrealistic to suggest. But it’s got to be as real as Tymeir’s unnecessary death. Had this tragedy occurred on the Baltimore Beltway, I-95 or the Capitol Beltway, statewide officials would be falling over themselves in expressions of remorse. Route 113 is a stretch of road that cuts through a beautiful, small American town. We doubt you’d find it, state politicians, without your GPS. The point is, we all vote, and the people of Berlin deserve a quick, dedicated response. There has to be a better way to cross Route 113 along Bay Street. We shouldn’t be mourning the loss of Tymeir today. We pray his brother recovers and we offer Tymeir’s family our deepest sympathy and support. This didn’t have to happen. Speed limits have to be lowered. Pedestrians need to be given a traffic signal in their favor with a countdown sign. Speed violations need to be enforced with violators ticketed. Everyone, including law enforcement personnel, needs to slow down and take the road with caution even when responding to a dispatched call. We’re not out to point fingers at the state trooper who was involved in Friday’s

accident. God only knows the pain he’ll endure going over in his mind what happened, and having to tell his story possibly many times. On a cold, blustery night in Berlin, its citizens turned out to talk. It was useful as it was cathartic. Gov. O’Malley, we’re asking you to take a ride on that road. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, you want desperately to be the next governor. You should have been in that room in Berlin Tuesday night. Gansler, as the state’s chief lawyer, you know this situation is unacceptable. Or do you any of you know? Let’s not let Tymeir’s life be forgotten. Let’s take this moment to make it clear in Tymeir’s memory, that this stretch of Route 113 is a thoroughfare of potential injury or death and it is visible in plain sight. It doesn’t have to stay this way. We applaud the solidarity of a Town Council public hearing room in Berlin. Out of the darkness, we demand that their voices are heard in Annapolis. Before the next pedestrian is hit. Because for the Berlin residents who came to City Hall, this wasn’t about another neighbor or citizen. Tymeir was a son, a brother, a cousin, a relative. He was a child of Berlin and a member of everyone’s family. Do the right thing, State of Maryland. Expedite this and turn this inexcusable hazard into a safe place. And do it now.

Need a two-ton press dewatering channel? Catrice L. Parsons will make sure it’s yours for a price you just can’t beat

Phil Jacobs ■ Editor

OCEAN CITY TODAY/PHIL JACOBS

Catrice L. Parsons, Ocean City’s Service Center administrator procurement manager, is our own local answer for “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure.”

eed a two-ton Rotary Press 48-inch dewatering channel to put in the garage? How about three-inch mug-hog pump? Not to mention a 1999 Ford F150 truck. But as the perky advertorial voice on late night television will gladly tell us, “Wait, there’s more.” For a song, there are plenty of computer printers, panel monitors and CD cases. Make contact now, and there are a few tape dispensers, a centrifugal trash pump and even diabetic test strips. Chances are, however, you won’t want that dewatering device, which is used in wastewater processing. What’s it do? Don’t ask. Still, all of this, plus many, many more items that are worn out or are unneeded have been made available and for sale by the Town of Ocean City. Much of it is listed on govdeals.com. Catrice L. Parsons, Ocean City’s Service Center administrator procurement manager is our own local answer for “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure.”

So you don’t need the five fire hydrants listed on govdeals.com at this particular time, but there is certainly something else. This reporter had his eye on one of the bright red Honda Beach Patrol vehicles. Parked in the city’s 65th Street facilities are examples of what Ocean City has decided to sell. Parsons said that in recent years, some three quarters of a million dollars worth of old stuff has been sold by the city and put back into the city’s coffers to buy new equipment. “Everything sells,” said Parsons. “Some of items look fine and run fine. They might have traces of rust and that gets them put on our list.” Equipment comes from all over city government, ranging from the construction division to the police department to Beach Patrol to wastewater operations to IT. Some buyers purchase items not to reuse in any way, but for the value of its scrap. “People can come in and buy something like a scooter,” she said. “And many disassemble them and use them for parts. We’ll list anything. We typically list something twice.” She added that by the time an item reaches her, it has been determined by a department manager that the item is no longer “fit for use.” But some of these items have been in service for 5-10

Winterfest of Lights opens Thursday Winterfest Express will give spectators tour through illuminated park CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) Sip cocoa with Santa Claus and take a ride on the Winterfest Express duirng Ocean City’s 21st annual Winterfest of Lights, which kicks off with a celebration Thursday, Nov. 21 at Northside Park. The opening celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. and include Ocean City Elementary School’s “OC Stars” singing and dancing, comments from Mayor Rick Mee-

han, an appearance by Santa and the ceremonial “flipping” of the switch to illuminate the 125th Street park. Almost one million lights and more than a month of labor transform the park into a winter wonderland each year, with more than 100 glittering and animated displays set to holiday music. Nov. 21 through Jan. 1, visitors have the chance to take a ride through the park’s 58 acres on the Winterfest Express, a tram that makes the one-mile journey set to music. Old favorites such as the 12 Days of Christmas, fairy tale-based displays, the 50-foot-tall illuminated Christmas tree and even a tribute to Jaws will be there again this year, along with a new display of the Coca Cola polar bears, said Frank Miller, Special Events superintendent

for the Town of Ocean City. Winterfest of Lights has a different layout each year to keep trips fresh for return visitors. It also challenges riders to find their favorite display in a new location. Some of the displays take days to assemble, and the city’s crew began work in early October to transform the park for the event. Santa will arrive opening night and be present to greet children and adults and listen to their Christmas wish lists every night, Nov. 21 though Dec. 23. Children can also write a letter to Santa and slip it in his mailbox. His house and the tent where visitors wait in line will be heated, keeping visitors warm as they listen to music and wait for the Boardwalk trams to take them through See WINTERFEST on Page 3B

the 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 starting at $1. A hot chocolate shop run by the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Booster will sell cocoa and coffee. Winterfest of Lights has become a tradition for locals and families visiting during the holiday season. Many visit the awardwinning nighttime festival each year to take the guided open-air tour through the park accompanied by holiday tunes. “It’s like going on a ride at Disney World, but you’re seeing all Christmas lights at Northside Park,” said Tom Shuster, director of the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. The American Bus Association named Winterfest of Lights one of the Top 100 Events in North America for 2014, an honor it also earned in 2011. Maryland Life Magazine has voted it “Maryland’s Finest Holiday Tradition.” Last year, 95,599 people viewed the 125th Street displays, Shuster said. On an average night, 1,991 people rode the train through the illuminated park. Visits in 2012 were down from the year before, when a record 107,405 passengers took the 12-minute train ride while the displays shimmered for 46 days. The previous attendance record was 93,937, set in 2001. The biggest night last year was the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 23, when 7,538 people rode the train, with Saturday, Dec. 1 trailing with 6,918 people touring the displays. Mild temperatures and clear skies helped 2012 attendance and weather only hampered one night, Dec. 26, when displayed closed early due to rain, Shuster said. The event generated more than $500,000 for the city last year. “Based on the attendance we had at Springfest, even with the bad weather, and Sunfest, I’d say were going to have another great year,” Miller said. Winterfest of Lights began 21 years ago with the city’s parks department building original displays with iron, Christmas lights and black electrical tape, Miller said. “And we’ve gone from that to over a million lights,” with the help of the Chamber of Commerce and the Hotel-MotelRestaurant Association, he said. Winterfest of Lights runs nightly through Jan. 1, 2014. Hours of operation are 5:30-9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 5:30-10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The cost to ride the train is $5 for adults. Children 11 and younger ride for free.

City’s surplus items bring in new money years, she added, and it’s just time to replace them.” Indeed, the Ocean City Beach Patrol ATVs in the parking lot looked good enough to hit the sand again, but Parsons honed in on the rust and corrosion underneath. Each city department, she said, goes through a budget and approval process, and part of that incudes needs for new equipment. It will then be determined if a piece of equipment is salvageable or needs to be sold. Parsons, a Salisbury resident, puts together an updated list every quarter. “I want to make sure that these items are not just sitting around the impound lot for a great deal of time,” she said.

can be recycled and used again. Many buyers want these items only for their recycle value. As far as police and fire equipment is concerned, Parsons said some of those items are unavailable on the open market. “The best thing about all of this is that Ocean City is making every dollar count,” she said. “We are always asking ourselves what can we do to be environmentally responsible with what we sell. And in two and a half years, we’ve sold $750,000 worth of equipment.” Oh, and by the way, does anyone want to buy a good used fire hydrant? Ocean City still has five listed for sale. Fifty bucks apiece and they are yours.

Parsons, who has the letters “CPSM” next to her name, is also an adjunct professor in Management and Marketing at Salisbury University. CPSM stands for Certified Professional in Supply Management. This is hardly a matter of getting rid of stuff the city no longer wants. Indeed, Parsons knows that much of her inventory such as electronics has value in some manner even for electronics recyclers. Some of these items, she said she teaches her Salisbury University students, have value from “cradle to grave.” “After it’s met its useful life, a piece of equipment can be repurposed in so many different ways.” She said some of these discards have valuable glass and metals that

Crab soup secret: cook live crustaceans in base FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Goal to have crab flavor work its way into stock DEBORAH LEE WALKER  Contributing Writer

(Nov. 15, 2013) The secret to crab soup is to cook live crabs in the soup base. Chicken, fish, and beef stock must be included for a perfect stock. Cover pot and turn up the burner. When the stock mixture has reached a light boil, place six crabs into the stock, cover and turn down the heat. By placing only half of the crabs into the kettle, the crabs will cook faster and not suffer as much. Once the crabs turn orange, turn down the heat again to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes. The goal is to have all of the crab flavor work its way into the stock. Old Bay or any other seasoning cannot replace the flavor of crabs. This is why cooking live crabs is the secret to crab soup. Once all the crabs have cooled, it’s time to pick them for their luscious meat. Crabmeat will be the last ingredient added to the soup. Save the mustard that is tucked away in the corner of the shells. Add it to the broth for a richer foundation. Be sure to remove the bitter seeds

from the canned tomatoes, which will do nothing but take away from the soup’s flavor. While we are on the subject of tomatoes, there is one more secret to crab soup. Add a few pinches of baking soda. The baking soda helps take away the acidity of the tomatoes. Also, this allows the crabmeat and the vegetables to come to the forefront. INGREDIENTS 12 small live crabs, rinsed 1 pound lump crabmeat, picked free of broken shells ½ pound claw meat, picked free of broken shells 4 (28) oz. whole peeled canned tomatoes. Strain tomatoes and set juice aside. 4 cups chicken stock 4 cups fish stock plus 1 tablespoon bouillon granules 4 cups beef stock plus 1 tablespoon bouillon granules 2 tablespoons Worcestershire 3 tablespoons white vinegar 3 teaspoons hot sauce 2 large cloves garlic, minced 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped 2 stalks celery, finely sliced

2 large carrots, cubed into ½ inch pieces 2 bay leaves 2 rounded teaspoons Old Bay seasoning 1 cup cabbage, diced 1 cup of frozen peas 1 ½ cups frozen lima beans 1 ½ cups frozen sweet corn 2 cups red potatoes, cubed into ½ inch pieces

1. Bring stocks, stock granules, and juice from canned tomatoes to a soft boil in a large Dutch oven. Add half of the crabs, cover and reduce heat to medium. Steam until crabs turn orange. Reduce heat to a simmer and steam for another 10 minutes. Remove and allow crabs to cool. Repeat the process with the remaining six crabs. 2. Pick crabs and save the crab meat along with the mustard. Add the mustard to the soup. 3. Remove hard ends and seeds from tomatoes. 4. Add the remaining ingredients except for crab meat, peas, lima beans, and corn. Place lid on Dutch oven and simmer for 45 minutes. 5. Add peas, lima beans, and corn and simmer for 10 minutes (uncovered). 6. Fold in crabmeat, careful not to break the lump crabmeat. Simmer for three minutes and serve immediately.

Still the Same After 34 Years!

The more things change, the more we stay the same.

Kemp sees turkey flying through air with Santa on its beak? SENIOR SLANT

(Nov. 15, 2013) What comes first the turkey or the tree? Would you believe, I witnessed a wee bit of optical confusion the other night? I actually saw a turkey flying through the air with a Santa Claus on his beak. What amazed me is that all this happened in slower, lower Delaware. I’m told that Santa made his debut at Selbyville’s Halloween parade, dragging a bag full of Valentine hearts and Easter baskets. Nary a reindeer nor elf in sight. Oh yeah my broom is out of the shop and up and operating. Kind of a mindblowing experience but come fly with me some day and see for yourself.

He’s been known to really reach out and touch someone by playing songs, the likes of “Let me Call you Sweetheart” or “Heart of my Heart” or I’ll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time,” for the WWII vets that are still hanging in there. As of now, the big time contenders for the 2013/2014 attendance prizes at Hanna’s are seriously being “re-thunk.” I lost count when Whitey left for “thee” better place last month. Sorely missed by all his friends and long-time attendees, rumors abound that Whitey, who was a lead singer in Bob’s all-new weekly wrap-up show, is talking to the “big guy” about celebrating

happy hours in his heavenly kingdom. With the arrival of personality plus last week, everybody’s friend, Josie Hoffman, who lived to dance and loved to help others and also teach them how to cut a rug, has taken up residence there as well.

At times they wait patiently until I’ve exhausted my supply and started over before they give me the time-out signal. Sometimes they answer to the wrong name.

Decatur math team places second in Shore-wide event SHEILA R. CHERRY  Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette

(Nov. 15, 2013) As they head into the homestretch for graduation next year, Stephen Decatur High School seniors Daniel Beck, Jake Eisenman and Gary Qian will leave a legacy of helping their alma mater move into the winning zone after placing second during the 30th annual Eastern Shore High School Mathematics Competition on Nov. 7. The team was the first place winner last year, and Beck, who was also on last year’s team, was the third place winner for the individual competition. Noting the first place honors won in 2012, he said SDHS “was the team to beat,” this year. Sherryl Olson is the team’s teacher and coach/advisor, and was recognized as one of several teachers who were mentioned for bringing teams from their respective schools to participate in the math competition for 20 years or more. With the graduations of the trio, she will be faced with having to build and coach a brand new team for next year. She said she will look for students with strong critical thinking skills. The winner of the team competition was North Caroline Senior High School, of Ridgely, Md. Pocomoke High School won third place. Heejun Choi of Parkside High School in Salisbury won first place in the individual student competition, and Fei Gao of Broadwater Academy, in Exmore, Va., was runner-up. The contest was sponsored by Delmarva Power and took place at Salisbury University. Other local teams who participated in the math competition included: • Worcester Prep with Lane Spangler, Eric Zorn and Mikalah Potvin, and Linda Bragg as the teacher and coach/advisor; • Snow Hill, with Camden Fischer, Gabe Power and Alex Shockley, and Ken Wilson as the teacher and coach/advisor; and • Worcester Tech, with Tyler Jenkins, Owen Dennis and Marley Rakow, and Julia Hill as the teacher and coach/advisor. With their solid math backgrounds, Beck said the SDHS team practiced group problem-solving skills, which apparently was key, because the manner and format in which the questions were posed all but guaranteed that the responses be made by the group. “Once you know the basis of math, you are better able to use it to connect to other concepts,” said Qian. He then peels off a philosophical reflection he’s been apparently storing for a while to describe the competition. See BECK on Page 11B

OCEAN CITY TODAY/SHEILA R. CHERRY

The Stephen Decatur High School team, from left, seniors Jake Eisenman, Gary Qian and Daniel Beck won second place during the 30th annual Eastern Shore High School Mathematics Competition at Salisbury University on Nov. 7. Beck also took home third place for his showing in the individual competition.

" &! +$

Beck takes home third place in individual math competition “It prods the intellectual vitality of our mental states,” he said tongue–incheek, eliciting bewildered glances from his teammates. Eisenman waves it off and said he simply viewed the contest as “a fun challenge to try.” The teams were given three questions they had 15 minutes to solve and then explain the processing and reasoning for their answers. The hardest of the three, they said was a question using “traffic geometry,” which required that they find the shortest distance between two points using block-boundary movements on a gridbased path. The concept is not as esoteric as it might seem from its name, once it is defined.

Wheatley celebrates 25th year as church’s Minister of Music A versatile musician, he plays piano, trumpet and accordion, among others

(Nov. 15, 2013) The congregation of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Ocean City recently held a Sunday luncheon to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Elsworth Wheatley as Minister of Music. The church pastor, Reverend Gregg Knepp, commended Elsworth for the quality of his service to the church and presented a gift of appreciation from the congregation. Wheatley’s sister, Cathy Morgan, accompanied St. Peter’s choir members in an anthem to honor Elsworth. Wheatley has been a church organist since the age of 13. He brought long experience and training to his position at St. Peter’s. A graduate of Salisbury University and Shenandoah University of Winchester, Va., he is musician, teacher and director. When he came to St. Peter’s, Elsworth was to direct the choir and to play the organ for worship services. Since that time he has originated the contemporary music group known as Free Spirit, started the Hand Bell

Choir and the Eighth Notes Choir for the Sunday early service, formed the brass ensemble and recruited many area musicians to perform at St. Peter’s. A versatile musician, Elsworth plays piano, organ, violin, trumpet, trombone, accordion and guitar. He gives private music lessons and he tunes and repairs pianos. He has arranged numerous musical selections for the Hand Bell and Chancel Choir of St. Peter’s. He has played piano and violin in concert with the Baltimore Philharmonia Orchstra. In the community, Wheatley is well known for entertaining at private parties and at local restaurants where he plays during dinner, often on his own baby grand piano. For many years he has played at the Ocean City Easter Sunday Sunrise Worship Service and often at the Community Thanksgiving Service where he has directed the Community Choir as well. Elsworth also serves as organist at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Ocean City and at the Park Seventh Day Adventist Church in Salisbury. Wheatley lives in the Berlin area with his wife Terri and daughter Mary Jo.
