Fire erupts out of the door leading to the Shepherd’s Crook pantry in the St. Paul’s by-the-Sea rectory on Baltimore Avenue on Tuesday morning.

Tragedy at St. Paul’s rectory Bizarre fire claims two lives, including church pastor, the Rev. David Dingwall

(Nov. 29, 2013) A fire in the rectory of St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Ocean City on Tuesday morning claimed the lives of two victims, the church’s pastor, the Rev. David Dingwall, and John Sterner, the man who allegedly started the fire under bizarre and horrifying circumstances.

Residential & Commercial 24/7 Emergency Service

A third victim was taken to the burn unit at Johns Hopkins’ Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore with lifethreatening injuries. Her condition as of Wednesday morning was listed as critical but stable, according to a hospital spokesperson. The 9:25 a.m. fire started when a man walked into the Shepherd’s Crook, the volunteer-run food and clothing pantry on the ground floor of the rectory, fully engulfed in flames. He had

been seen outside just moments earlier lighting a cigarette. “He comes across the street lighting his cigarette, and everyone thinks he’s just walking over for a cup of coffee,” said one witness. “Thirty seconds later, he bursts in the door on fire.” The incident happened at a time when the facility was predictably busy, as the Shepherd’s Crook typically opens at 10 a.m. Hot coffee was typically

Sterner spread flames to female victim as church rectory caught fire available on the porch as a courtesy to homeless people and others looking to warm up. “[A woman] was there and he grabbed her and said, ‘Help me,’” said a woman who goes to the Shepherd’s Crook for food. Upon grabbing her, the flames then spread to the female victim, who fled outside near the corner of the street. “I was coming by to get some canned stuff,” said Walter Linthicum, who saw the woman standing by a utility pole. “She was burnt. A man put her out with his hands. His hands were black.” Police confirmed Wednesday that Sterner had entered the rectory on fire, and had died at the scene. People who knew him had told Ocean City Today on Tuesday that Sterner was indeed the first victim, and was “down and out” and sometimes sought food at the Shepherd’s Crook. Derrick Percifull said Sterner had lived with him for about eight or nine months in a unit on Philadelphia Avenue near the Route 50 bridge. Sterner, he said, did not work because he was disabled. Percifull did not know the exact nature of Sterner’s disability, but said he had back problems. He also said Sterner had five daughters and although he had not grown up in the

area, he “had been here many, many years.” The female victim, whose name was withheld by police, was reportedly a volunteer at the Shepherd’s Crook. After being treated at the scene, she was taken to Atlantic General Hospital and then to Peninsula Regional Medical Center and later to the Hopkins Bayside burn unit. Two additional people had reportedly been at the Shepherd’s Crook, but were uninjured. Inside the rectory, the fire spread to an upper floor where Father Dingwall had been working and was unable to escape. Dingwall was carried out of the side of the building by firefighter/paramedics who performed chest compressions on him before he was taken to Atlantic General Hospital, where he passed away Tuesday afternoon. As time passed, more people gathered on the sidewalks and on the lawn outside City Hall to witness the incident. The church itself was saved from the fire. “It seems they made an excellent stop,” said Rich Anderson, battalion chief of York United Fire and Rescue in Pennsylvania, who had been fishing at the inlet when he saw smoke and went to the scene. “It seems like their tactics

were very good to keep the fire from the church.” Meanwhile, several people were calling Pastor Rich Burkhead of His Praise Place on Worcester Street because they knew he had planned to fry turkeys at St. Paul’s on Tuesday for Thanksgiving dinner. That did not happen, as Burkhead had changed his plans so that he could pick up the sexton of St. Paul’s from the hospital, where he had been recovering from a stroke.

fried the turkeys a day early at His Praise Place and he was picking up the sexton on the day of the fire. “It wasn’t our time,” Burkhead said Tuesday evening after leading a prayer for the victims. After being notified of the fire, Bishop James J. Shand of the Diocese of Easton drove to Atlantic General Hospital to be with Dingwall and his family. “It is with great sadness that we

Dingwall would’ve celebrated 25th year of priesthood next month write to let you know that the Rev. David Dingwall has died. Thank you for your prayers on this very solemn day,” wrote Shand on the Episcopal Diocese of Easton Web site. “We were about to celebrate his 25th year as a priest,” parishioner Bob Rothermel said while standing on the sidewalk across from the church’s entrance, as firefighters continued to suppress the fire. “Invitations were just sent out.” The celebration was scheduled to be held Sunday, Dec. 15, the anniversary of Dingwall’s ordination. The Ocean City Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division, along with the city’s Office of the Fire Marshall, are investigating the incident. Continued from Page 3A

City officials declined to comment on whether the apparent self-immolation was being investigated as an accident or with intent. Homeless residents are known to take shelter on the rectory’s porches, even when the Shepherd’s Crook is not open. “A couple weeks ago we had an incident where some guys were sleeping on the porch and tried to light a fire in a five-gallon bucket to keep warm, and it burned through the porch,” said Kevin Ball of the Park Place Hotel, who volunteers at the church. “When I heard the sirens, I thought the same thing had happened again, but it was much worse.” “It’s a tinder box,” Ball said. “The alarms worked, but it’s an old building.”

Firefighters were on the scene for several hours cutting passages into the rectory’s walls and insulation. “We’re in the process of what we call ‘overhauling,’ to make sure that there are no more pockets of fire that could flare up,” OCFD spokesman Steve Price said Tuesday afternoon. Price said responders found “very little damage” to the church itself, which, although connected to the rectory, was constructed separately. Father Dingwall began his ministry as rector of St. Paul’s by-the-Sea in October 2005. He and his family moved from British Columbia in 2003 after his wife, Brenda, was hired as the equal opportunity and diversity officer at Wallops. Until he obtained a green card, Dingwall presided over Sunday services

Despite cuts, council skeptical of OCBP project’s size, layout New building still projected under $2M, but excesses in office area, lobby criticized ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Preliminary designs for the much-awaited new Ocean City Beach Patrol building were reviewed by City Council this week, with some continuing concern over the project’s lavish layout despite considerable cuts having already been made by city staff. “[In] the first design go-around, the building was about 3,000 square feet larger than what we’re showing you today,� said City Engineer Terry McGean. “It was quite an effort to get it down to where it needed to be.� Still, what amount of space is the right amount of space for the new facility has been difficult to gauge. On one hand, the OCBP is the primary face of the town to most visitors and has a high public profile. On the other hand, it is fully operational for only a little over three months of the year, and its primary function occurs on the beach, not in a headquarters building. “This project is going to be 98 percent

empty nine months of the year,� said Councilman Joe Mitrecic. “I’m still concerned that it’s too big for what is necessary.� The city will be borrowing $2 million next month to finance construction. The first phase of design, McGean said, has resulted in a slight cost increase, but one that could be absorbed by the 15 percent overage contingency the city had included in its original figure. “Although the cost went up, we felt comfortable reducing the contingency to ten percent, so we’re basically still at $2 million,� McGean said. Roughly $60,000 of this increase came from incorporating covered porches into the design, a feature favored by the municipally-backed Ocean City Development Corporation’s aesthetic guidelines. OCDC owns the lot on which the new OCBP building will be built, and will be swap property with the city for the current OCBP site, which is part of the group’s “model block� design initiative. OCDC will also be paying for 35 percent of the $2 million bond repayment using revenue from the inlet parking lot, which is collected by the city in part to fund OCDC. “We’re trying to follow our own rules,� McGean said. “The downtown guidelines

Town finds following own design rules adds $60K in ‘gingerbread’ do call for porches…so we try to make ourselves do what we make everyone else do, as much as we can.” “It’s tough,” noted OCDC Executive Director Glenn Irwin. “You want it to fit in, but you don’t want to make it look like a house when it’s a civic building.” “We’ve supported your guidelines on private buildings, and I think Terry’s right that we need to do the same ourselves,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. The current design, assembled by architects from Becker Morgan, calls for a three-story structure with its entrance facing diagonally into the intersection of Talbot Street and Philadelphia Avenue. The new building will be located on the southeast corner of that junction. One of the OCBP’s main complaints about their current building one block south on Dorchester Street – other than the fact that it is rotting out from under them – is a lack of storage space for boards, buoys, and other equipment, something which the new design seeks to remedy by including nearly 3,000 square feet of storage. The new building will also feature increased amenities for the Ocean City Police Department, which uses part of the facility for its downtown bicycle patrol officers. The new design features a bicy-

cle storage room with upright racks, as well as a workshop and computer station for officers to fill out maintenance logs and file reports. These core facilities, located mostly on the ground floor of the building, raised few questions from council Tuesday. Of more concern, however, were the extensive office and administrative spaces on the second and third floors. “Compared to other department head’s offices that I’m familiar with…no disrespect to the beach patrol, but this seems large,” said Council Secretary Mary Knight of the 250 square foot captain’s office. “The original size was 350,” McGean noted. “We cut it down considerably. He [OCBP Capt. Butch Arbin] does do a lot of interviews and things like that in his office.” “My office is about 200,” McGean said. “I don’t think it’s unreasonable.” Besides the captain’s office, the administrative floors of the new building feature four slightly smaller lieutenant’s offices, as well as an office for the Junior Beach Patrol program, a joint workroom for sergeants, a dispatch room, receptionist’s area, conference room, and administrative assistant’s office. “It seems like you would have many See STORAGE on Page 9A

Storage most important element people out [on the beach] at a time versus one in the office,” Knight said. “How many hours per day to the lieutenants spend in the office?” Mitrecic posed. “It seems like at least two could share an office.” Much of the office space, OCBP Lt. Ward Kovacs noted, is necessary for storage. “Each one of us has a different job set with different materials,” Kovacs said. “Lt. Stone, for instance, does the scheduling…he’s got shelves and shelves full of binders and records. It would not be efficient for us to share that space.” Also of note was the fact that visitors coming into the building’s main entrance would be greeted with a 245 square foot lobby that essentially only serves to direct visitors to an elevator leading up to the receptionist’s area on the third floor. “It just seems like a lot of lobby area,” Meehan said. “I think making it smaller would signify to person that there’s a next step to get where you’re going…versus a great big space without a soul there,” Knight said. Questions were also raised as to why the building featured so many groundlevel exterior doors, 11 in total, and whether this de-centralized method of accessing different elements of the building was the best way to go. “You have a lot of points of ingress Continued from Page 7A

and egress,” said Councilman Dennis Dare. “If someone in the equipment room wants to go up to the office, they have to leave the building and go around to the stair tower.” “If we reduce the number of exterior doors, we’re going to be increasing the number of corridors and hallways,” McGean said. Only so many could be eliminated without sacrificing the current efficiency of space, he noted. “If we have to go a little above and beyond, I’m okay with that,” said Councilman Brent Ashley. “Does it do what you want?” he asked Kovacs, who responded to the affirmative. “That’s the bottom line for me.” “Once we’ve reached the next phase of the design, we’ll do another cost estimate and come back to you,” McGean said.

Beer, wine sales coming soon if Snow Hill station renovated BLC says need present on Market Street, but wants tenants to fix up property NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 29, 2013) Residents without transportation in the area of the southern end of Market Street in Snow Hill will no longer have to walk to the other end of town to buy beer and wine if the new tenants of the Kaddy Mart spruce up the store as promised last Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to see improvements before we hand you a license,â&#x20AC;? William E. Esham Jr., chairman of the Board of License Commissioners, told Nazish Ali and Muhammad Waseem of Federalsburg. During the Oct. 16 hearing, Zahid Shah, Aliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncle, said Ali and Waseem planned to make improvements to the business, located at 426 W. Market St. Shah spoke to the board because his English is more fluent that Aliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Waseemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Shah, who lives in New York, is financing the improvements. The board asked for those plans to be presented during the November meeting. During that meeting last Wednesday,

attorney Brian Pete Cosby presented the board with photos, computer printout and invoices to show that Ali and Waseem plan to install new gas pumps, new shelving, new paint and a new cooling system. They have already starting installed new tiles and plan to have blacktop on the parking lot. They will also install searchlights outside and install new signage. Some residents said the license is needed so people would not have to walk through town to reach a store on the other end of Market Street to purchase beer or wine. One nearby resident, Mark Nixon, however, was concerned about the hours that alcohol would be sold because he did not want to be bothered my noise from the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers. He asked that alcohol sales cease at 10 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to be able to sleep at night,â&#x20AC;? Nixon said. Cosby agreed that sales would cease as Nixon requested. He said there is a need for the alcoholic beverage license in that area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public need to bring the neighborhood back up,â&#x20AC;? Cosby said. The boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigator will inspect the Kaddy Mart to ensure the promised improvements are made. When that work is verified, the board will issue the requested beer and wine license.

ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Providing health insurance is like running from a bear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be the fastest, just faster than the other guy. On the scale of inconvenience to outright debacle, Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online health insurance exchange system appears to now be more of the former, at least compared to the continuing disaster that is the federally-managed website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably getting 60 to 70 percent of our applications through the first time,â&#x20AC;? said local insurance broker Chris Keen of Keen Insurance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 50 people with approvals right now, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably getting three to five new people enrolled each day.â&#x20AC;? For at least the first two weeks following its Oct. 1 launch, however, virtually no applications were getting through the Maryland Health Conection. But according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 10,917 applications for insurance have now been received via Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health exchange through Nov. 2. The linchpin of timely enrollment, however, appears to be whether or not

an applicant actually has to go through the federal government at all. The cost to exchange subscribers is subsidized by the federal government at different tiers, depending on their income, with those making up to 400 percent of the current poverty level receiving some assistance. Past that, exchange insurance rates are un-subsidized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nobody to get in the way in those cases,â&#x20AC;? Keen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting a federal subsidy and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through their exchange, those policies are getting enrolled in a week.â&#x20AC;? Of Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s applicants, 3,498 have been determined to be eligible for an exchange-based plan, and 2,638 of these eligible for a federal subsidy. 1,284 have gotten so far as to enroll with an insurer. State-wide, young people have made up a large number of the 53,000 people who have at least created accounts on the Maryland Health Connection, regardless of whether their application has actually gotten through the federal portion of the process. According to state data, Worcester Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21811 zip code has one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest concentrations of account holders, with numbers in the same range as more urban areas of the See MEDICAID on Page 13A

Medicaid expansion continues to exceed private enrollments state. However, Keen said that local interest trends less toward the young and uninsured and more toward older residents whose plans will have to be reconfigured under federal law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m seeing are probably more on the older side,â&#x20AC;? Keen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m seeing as the driving factor is typically people who have health insurance and have received a letter that their plan is going to be cancelled. It seems right now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the people who are uninsured that are coming forward.â&#x20AC;? Under the federal Affordable Care Act, all insurance plans must provide subscribers with a single deductible that covers all potential out-of-pocket costs. This was conceived by the Obama administration as a way to reduce hidden fees and force insurance companies to provide more comprehensive coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new laws require that if you make co-pays or deductibles or any kind of coinsurance, all of those expenses you pay out-of-pocket have to contribute to one large number,â&#x20AC;? Keen explained. However, this means the cancellation of plans that have ancillary fees or qualifications, and their replacement with compliant plans whose premiums are much higher. If one is eligible for a federal subsidy, however, the net cost will still likely be lower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the policies being cancelled were missing one of those requirements,â&#x20AC;? Keen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In every case, the premiums on the new plans are higher. So if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re above the 400 percent of poverty level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costing you more.â&#x20AC;? Due to the backlash from some whose policies were being cancelled, the White House announced this week that non-compliant policies could be renewed through the end of 2014, instead of having to switch over in the coming year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CareFirst has just released that they will allow their policy holders to keep their policies through all of 2014, but they have a limited time to submit their requests,â&#x20AC;? Keen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely be seeing a rush of people who want to keep policies that are being phased out.â&#x20AC;? Further complicating the situation is the fact that Maryland will be automatically enrolling over 82,000 people in Medicaid as of Jan. 1. Maryland is one of several states that has chosen to expand the publicly-backed system, with all those making less than 138 percent of the national poverty line eligible for Medicaid. Although the state expects new private insurance enrollments to continue to rise through the end of the year, the fact that these are still dwarfed by new Medicaid policies has been pointed to by many critics as evidence that the ACA is unbalanced in private vs. public burden.

PZ Commission floats leniency for renovations Fifty-percent rule for code compliance stunts projects ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Nov. 29, 2013) The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Planning and Zoning Commission proposed the idea this week of giving more leeway to those who want to renovate or improve their property without doing a complete redevelopment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, we want people to improve and better their properties, but our code doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow that,â&#x20AC;? said Commissioner Peck Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to be able to improve without demolishing.â&#x20AC;? Under city code, older buildings that do not conform to current zoning standards are allowed to exist as they are. If the structure is rebuilt, however, it must be constructed to the new code in matters such as parking, setbacks, elevation, etc. Any improvement valued at more than 50 percent of the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessed value counts as rebuilding, and the city keeps track of permitted improvements from the date of non-conformity to gauge how far a building has been altered. Thus, in any significant overhaul of a building that was constructed prior to the current code, it is likely that the structure will have to be torn down and the property completely reconfigured. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can retrofit an existing building, but if you trip 51 percent the whole building has to be brought up to spec,â&#x20AC;? said city Zoning Administrator R. Blaine Smith. At Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, the commission reviewed a case in point, where a family home on the Boardwalk between 12th and 13th Streets had been demolished and was presenting new plans to be rebuilt, given the value of the improvements planned. This is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intent with regards to major redevelopments, noted Commissioner Lauren Taylor, but in the case of smaller property owners who are trying to do gradual improvements, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a detriment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you did it over 15 or 20 years, it would be different than doing it all at once,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at people who are trying to improve their property incrementally, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a penalty.â&#x20AC;? Many of these improvements that require a building to be brought up to code are not major expansions, but improvements in insulation, ventilation, fire-proofing, and other modernizations of some of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older beach homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My issue is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it for See LOW on Page 15A

A 31-year-old Frankford, Del., man was charged Nov. 24 with malicious destruction of property after allegedly damaging a piece of equipment outside a north Ocean City bar. According to Ocean City police, Russell Allan Littleton was told to leave the bar because he had been involved in a fight inside. Two other people who were told to leave left voluntarily, but Littleton had to be escorted out. Outside, Littleton allegedly pushed the bar’s carbon dioxide tank onto the ground. The 4-foot-tall tank, which is used by bartenders to carbonate drinks, was no longer functional and the rub connecting the tank

safety reasons,” said Commission Chair Pam Buckley. “I would think that we could have some kind of exemption for winterization or sprinklers or things like that.” One of the major issues in the downtown area, where many buildings need such improvements, is that the 50 percent margin is applied to the value of the structure, Ocean City Development Corporation Executive Director Glenn Irwin noted. In many cases where OCDC has helped homeowners with façade renovations, Irwin said, the value of the property is in the land, while the building itself is worth relatively little. But those who wish to invest in their property “are constantly adding to this 50 percent target and running up against the value of their existing building,” Irwin said. “If they go over and have to bring it to code, it would have to be upgraded all at once in so many ways that you could never recover the cost of doing so,” Taylor said. The commission will discuss the matter at future meetings with city staff. Continued from Page 14A

(Nov. 29, 2013) Employees at a downtown Ocean City hotel on their lunch break last Tuesday recognized a man as the one they had seen on surveillance video that morning. The man had burglarized the hotel. Ocean City police were called to the Plim Plaza on Second Street at about 10 a.m. Nov. 20. The hotel is closed, but the man who lives there and serves as its night watchman reported that several items were stolen when his room was broken into between 7 p.m. Nov. 19 and 7:20 a.m. Nov. 20. Missing were $182, an electronic Bible valued at $50, a small black bag valued at $12 and deodorant valued at $7. The suspect, he said, entered his locked room through a window that had been opened from the outside. He also said the suspect entered the office area of the hotel where he stole a camera, camera bag and camera lenses valued at $1,200. The night watchman also told police that the suspect had entered the Harrison Group offices on Baltimore Avenue near the Plim Plaza. There, the suspect pushed the front door in and stole several paychecks, with value of about $5,000, and two rolls of stamps worth $50. After leaving the Harrison Group office, the suspect returned to the Plim Plaza, where he spent the night in a room. He left at about 6 a.m. A police officer, the night watchman and several other Plim Plaza employees reviewed the video surveillance from the hotel. The officer continued his investigation as the others went to lunch in West Ocean City. While at lunch, the employees saw a man whose clothing matched that of the suspect in the surveillance video so they called police. Two officers responded to the call and confronted Smith, who placed his hands on his head and surrendered. He was wearing the same clothing he wore in the video. Smith had a black bag, which police searched and found two rolls of stamps, an electronic Bible, a small black bag, deodorant, a camera and camera lenses. The items matched those stolen from the night watchman, Plim Plaza and the Harrison Group. Smith also had in his possession burglary tools, including a flat head screwdriver, two pairs of pliers and a flashlight. As an officer reviewed the surveillance video, he noticed Smith using the same flashlight. Police charged Smith with third-degree burglary, two counts each of second-degree and fourth-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, theft of less than $1,000, theft from $1,000 to less than $10,000 and four counts of theft of less than $100. He was being held on $50,000 bond in the Worcester County Jail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 20 in District Court in Ocean City.

(Nov. 29, 2013) Berlin officials want to annex approximately 129 acres across Seahawk Road from Stephen Decatur High School and Stephen Decatur Middle School into the town because a developer wants to have commercial uses and residences there. On June 28, the developer acquired two parcels totaling 120 acres. Of that, 34.15 acres is zoned as a general commercial district. The other parcel, 86.5 acres, has a commercial land use designation of the county’s comprehensive land use map. It is zoned as agricultural. The developer plans to purchase 9.45 acres at the southeast intersection of Seahawk Road and Route 50. The town wants to annex all of that property and rezone the first two parcels as a general business district. The third parcel would be rezoned as a residential district. In an Oct. 28 letter to the Worcester County Commissioners, Berlin Mayor Gee Williams asks them to consent to the annexation and change of zoning classification so the developer “can proceed with the necessary process as expeditiously as possible.” Ed Tudor, director of the county’s De-

partment of Development Review and Permitting, advised the commissioners not to do as Williams requested. To do so, he said, would be premature. At the very least, a draft annexation plan describing the extension of services and any pertinent conditions should be provided to the county. State law requires it. Tudor said. Without the legally required information, the county staff would not be adequately informed to assess the impacts of the proposed rezoning after annexation, Tudor said. Of particular concern is the considerable time and effort the county has spent to develop and implement design guidelines for commercial development to preserve its sense of place and to protect the primary gateway to Ocean City. Commissioner Virgil Shockley said he was concerned about the impact on the two schools, the service road, the road nearly parallel to Route 50 that extends from Holly Grove Road to Home Depot, and the residents who live nearby. Tudor said a lot of time and money had been spent on that road. “While I do not believe the town of Berlin has anything in mind other than the best of intentions, I do feel that this See PLAN on Page 20A

(Nov. 29, 2013) Aarg, mateys! Although the Pirates Den held its closing party in September, it was just the closing of one era. Another will begin when the Pirates Den opens just two blocks away in the Christmas Spirit building. Owner Michael Lawson was granted the transfer of the Pirates Den’s beer, wine and liquor license last week from its old site at 3201 Baltimore Ave. to its new site at 3400 Baltimore Ave. “We’ve existed with this license for 18 years,” Lawson told the Board of License

Commissioners last week. The Pirates Den was located in the Ocean Voyager Motel. That motel was razed so LaQuinto Inn could be built. The hotel is now under construction. The new site for the Pirates Den was built in 1976. It was known as Uncle Hiram’s, a country store owned by Tom Collins. Later, it was a store selling brass beds. The two-story building will be converted into a restaurant and bar. The kitchen, Lawson said, will be on the east side of the first floor. The new Pirates Den will have a pool table, a ping-pong table and foosball.

Plan ‘significant undertaking’ annexation, one much more substantial that the small infill type of annexations of the past, warrants the use of an annexation agreement by the county and the town as called for in both jurisdiction’s comprehensive plans,” Tudor wrote in his memo to the commissioners. Attorney Mark Cropper, representing the developer, said the plan was “a very significant undertaking.” He asked why the town could “go through all that” if the county commissioners were not going to agree to the annexation. He brought the

Continued from Page 18A

issue before them, he said, in case the commissioners “were going to say ‘no’ out of the gate. In his Nov. 13 letter to the commissioners, Cropper seemed to want more. The letter, he wrote, was a request asking the commissioners “to consent to the annexation and change of zoning classifications described herein in order that the project can proceed with the necessary process as expeditiously as possible.” The commissioners voted unanimously to convey to town officials that they should proceed, but to follow the rules.

Volunteers work to control OC’s, area’s feral cats Trap-neuter-return prog. helps reduce population CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Susan Coleman starts most days at 6 a.m., doing rounds at six sites in and around Ocean City. By midmorning, she’s answering phone calls, and then is back out in the field. Each Thursday, Coleman loads her truck with around 25 traps and makes the trek to and from Cambridge, all part of an unpaid social service to the city’s feral felines. “It’s what I love doing,” said Coleman, who spearheads Community Cats Coalition, a group of volunteers that helps manage the area’s free roaming cats through a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program. Coleman moved here in 2009 and said Community Cats, working with Delmarva Cat Connection and Town Cats, has helped spay and neuter more than 2,500 of the area’s fecund felines since. The program is yielding results in some cat colonies, she said. TNR helps control the colonies by stemming reproduction and leading to attrition. The procedure costs just $45 per leonine head at Snip Tuck Inc., an all-volunteer, nonprofit group dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted animals on the Delmarva Peninsula. Compared to the average $150-250 price tag to get a cat fixed, the costs are low, thanks to the “assembly line” procedure at the clinic, Community Cats Coalition’s Carlene Morrison said. “They go from one station to the next,” she said, from the room where the cats get an injection that knocks them out to an ear-cleaning and nail-clipping station, presurgery shaving, operation and recovery. The procedure comes complete with a rabies vaccination, penicillin to fight off any infections and a full health exam, Morrison said. But TNR is contentious in Worcester County, where the city council and county health department split in their responses to a request this year for funding for the program. “Trap, neuter and release is primarily speaking to the reproductive status of the cats,” said Dr. Andrea Mathias, Deputy Health Officer and Medical Director for the Worcester County Health Department. “Reproductive health is not the only health aspect of any animal. There’s a lot of other health-related care that goes into taking care of a cat.” The big concern is rabies in Worcester County, Mathias said. Though all trapped cats get a rabies vaccination in the TNR package, re-trapping them for their one-year booster proves problematic since they roam free. See CAT on Page 22A

Cat colonies in area contentious due to spread of diseases The very nature of the stray colonies “places cats in situations where they are likely to be exposed to the wild, rabid animals that we know are in our… community,” Mathias said. That can cause serious problems when people, accustomed to recognizing cats as pets, and household pets come in contact with infected animals. However, none of the county’s 44 confirmed cases of rabies this year were caused by cats, nor were the 37 suspected, untested cases, according to the Worcester County Health Department’s website. “It always comes back to a rabies issue,” Coleman said. In response to the need for booster shots, “we try,” she said. Re-trapping every cat for a rabies vaccine is farfetched in the free-roaming, feral population. But because the cats are wild, they are less likely to let humans pet them, and the alternative is much worse in Coleman’s eyes. “The public’s been trained (that) if you see a stray animal, you call animal control,” she said. “But all animal control does is pick it up and euthanize it.” Likewise, around 70 percent of the cats that make it to shelters are euthanized before they’re adopted out, Morrison said. To help save lives, Coleman hopes to gain the city council’s endorsement to start a marketing campaign about TNR in Ocean City. “It’s really just a matter of educating, letting people know I’m here,” she said. “The more people I can reach, the better for the cats.” The council agreed to give grants of $1,500 and $2,500, respectively, to Delmarva Cat Connection and Town Cats earlier this month, which Coleman said will help fund local TNR programs, where resources are “few and far between.” However, the Worcester County Commissioners, who are advised by the county health department’s health officer, will not financially endorse the TNR program unless there is some record that cats are being updated on their rabies vaccinations. “It’s a laudable effort to try to take care of the reproductive health of the cats, but it’s just not been sufficient to address all the other health issues of the cats and how that affects people,” Mathias said. Still, Coleman is trying to get a TNR ordinance in place in Worcester County. “It’s going to take months, but at least we’re going to get started,” said she. “It’s worth so much more than saying we don’t want them here at all.” Coleman is always looking for volunteers for jobs from feeding and fundraising to driving the cats to Cambridge to be fixed. Reach her at 443-909-8047 or catrescue1@gmail.com to sign up or for more information. To learn more about Community Cats Coalition visit www.communitycatscoalition.com.

Santa House needs new place to stash donated toys and items Current space must be vacated by end of year; liquor will be stored there NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 29, 2013) Santa needs a new house. Santa House needs a new place to stash toys and other items donated for the needy citizens of Worcester County. “We’d prefer to be in Snow Hill because it’s centrally located, but at this point, we’d be grateful for anything,” said Dena Holloway, who has spearheaded the annual Christmas drive for 30 years. She began gathering toys and other items about 30 years ago while working as an office assistant at the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. After 31 years of service to the county, she retired in June 2012, but continued her work coordinating the collection that was known as the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Christmas Needy Drive. Over the years, it helped thousands and thousands of needy children and their families. Now, Santa needs help. Holloway said the county asked her to file for non-profit status “so we would no longer need to use the county’s tax ID number,” she said. After obtaining non-profit status, she was told she needed to vacate the space at the end of this year. “We have to be out of the building by Dec. 31,” Holloway said. Since 2003, the Santa House has been in a large space in the Liquor Control Board building on Route 12 just outside Snow Hill town limits. As a result of state law, the county took over the work of selling liquor and the former Liquor Control Board became the Worcester County Department of Liquor Control on July 1. And the county says its space is needed to store liquor instead of toys. “We just absolutely need the room,” said Robert Cowger, director of the Department of Liquor Control last Friday.

Before the county took over the former Liquor Control Board, that board did not do the big buy-ins of products that are made now. “We sometimes buy six months supply of a product at a time to get the very best price, and we pass the savings on to licensees,” Cowger said. “The old LCB kept about $3 million on inventory, but we double that.” Quite simply, the warehouse is not large enough to hold the amount of product the county wants to buy to be able to give the best prices to the licensees and to offer such a large space to the Santa House. Also, no other nonprofit is using county space like the Santa

Santa House gave gifts to 2,273 children in 600 families last year House has been using. “It’s a shame, but the county has a viable business,” Cowger said. “We just absolutely have to have that space.” Since being told last summer about the need to vacate the premises, Holloway and others have been looking for a place to call home, or at least a place to store toys and other items. Bette Phillips, one of more than 100 volunteers, said she and her husband, attorney J. Harrison Phillips, who facilitated the non-profit status for the charity, had been aware that the Santa House needed a new home, but did not realize how desperate the situation was. “I talk to everybody,” Bette Phillips said. “One local person has offered to give them a trailer until they find a Continued from Page 23A

place.” Like Holloway, Phillips believes that Santa House should remain in Snow Hill. “That’s the best place for Santa House to be,” she said. The space now being used at the Department of Liquor Control is about 8,000 square feet. Holloway said a suitable size would be about 40 feet by 48 feet. It’s large, but the need is great. Last year, Santa House provided gifts to 2,273 children in more than 600 families. This year, Santa House expects to provide help to a greater number of children and their families. In addition, Santa House no longer limits its assistance to holiday time. The charity helps children and their families year round. “We graciously help those in need,”

Holloway said. To be considered for receiving help, families must be referred by community organizations, criminal justice departments, churches, schools and state or county personnel. Holloway said Santa House maintains a database of families requesting help, so volunteers can compare the names on that list with those of churches, the Salvation Army, Worcester County GOLD and “any other agency willing to cross-reference with us.” This year, for the first time, the Ocean City Police Department is partnering with Santa House. “We’re now one unit,” Holloway said. The OCPD and Santa House ask that all charitable monetary donations normally made to the OCPD be directed to the Santa House, Inc. instead. People

who wish to contribute monetary donations may mail them to Santa House, Inc., 4520 Red House Road, Snow Hill, Md. 21863. Unwrapped, new toys may continue to be dropped off at the Public Safety Building on 65th Street and Coastal Highway. Those donations will be distributed through the Santa House charity to Ocean City residents and other Worcester County residents in need this holiday season. The Public Safety Building will be one of the pickup sites this year. Families pre-selected to receive gifts will pick up on Dec. 17. Other pre-selected families will pick up their gifts at the Showell Fire Department on Dec. 18. “We have to do it early so our staff can pack and get ready to move out,” Holloway said.

City adopts policy for multitude of social media sites ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Nov. 29, 2013) City council passed the town’s first-ever social media policy this week, formally establishing a chain of command for Ocean City’s proliferation of municipal pages on Facebook and other networking websites. “There’s no policy in place now that says, per instance, that a Public Works employee couldn’t start a page and call it the official Public Works site,” said city Communications Manager Jessica Waters. “They presently do not have to go through me, but this would require that they do that.” Waters noted that the town and its various divisions and departments now have dozens of accounts on various online services, largely Facebook but also including

Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and others. Although she directly oversees the city’s press releases and major announcements, the proposed policy would establish a protocol for employees managing these sites and give Waters some level of supervision over them, even though she cannot be on every site all the time. “The department heads have employees who they ask to post certain things, with the understanding from me as to what is typically being posted,” Waters said. Although the policy will go a long way to establish uniformity on civic accounts, the other half of the issue is what employees may be posting on their personal pages, an issue that many city officials have said privately causes them some stress. “So we have staff that is out there talking about the town in what way?” asked Councilwoman Margaret Pillas.

The present policy, Waters stressed, “pertains more to official use” and less to what employees may say on their own when not acting as a representative of the town. “We will have a policy on that coming subsequently,” said City Manager David Recor. Waters did note, however, that a voluntary social media seminar will be held for employees on Dec. 4 and will advise them of best practices. However, given the strictures of the First Amendment, there is a fine line in what the city can regulate in the personal media of its employees, and whether or not an employee is still held up as such outside the workplace, or outside the work website. “It was recognized that a policy for official sites is the way to go, but when

OC Dew Tour wins ‘Economic Engine’ award from state office (Nov. 29, 2013) Maryland skateboard pro Bucky Lasek and his Dew Tour Beach Championship competitors aren’t the only ones walking away from Ocean City with a big win. The Maryland Office of Tourism Development recently named the Ocean City Dew Tour as an “Economic Engine” winner during the annual awards at the Maryland Tourism & Travel Summit, . The 2013 Ocean City Dew Tour was held June 20-23, marking the third consecutive year the international action sports competition showcased the

beauty and appeal of Ocean City and Maryland to the world. It is estimated the Dew Tour has brought in approximately $11.5 million in economic impact to Ocean City and the state, drawing an estimated 103,000 attendees this year alone. “I am thrilled that the Maryland Office of Tourism Development has awarded the Ocean City Dew Tour as an Economic Engine winner,” said Donna Abbott, Ocean City Tourism Director. “The Ocean City Department of Tourism works closely with Alli Sports

to promote the event. Not only does Ocean City’s event have the highest attendance in the Dew Tour’s history, but the event is also nationally broadcast, which adds to the exposure. “Last year alone, Ocean City and the state of Maryland were showcased to nearly four million national broadcast viewers and distributed to 99 million homes internationally.” The state judged nominees on job creation, positive economic impact to the region and state, exemplary contributions to Maryland’s tourism industry

and other unique qualities. “We are proud to be a part of Dew Tour history and thankful to Alli Sports for bringing the event to Ocean City as well as to the Maryland Office of Tourism Development for recognizing these efforts in making the event a success,” Abbott said. “We look forward to hosting the event in 2014 and once again showcasing the spectacular backdrop of Ocean City’s beach and Boardwalk to the nation and the incredibly talented athletes who compete here.”

Personal pages of staff in question you’re talking about personal use, trying to educate and empower people to make good decisions [on their own volition] is probably best,” Waters said. “We advise employees to keep their behavior in social media the same as they would outside of social media.” Council Secretary Mary Knight did re-

WORCESTER PREP WINTER SPORTS PREVIEW

Holland takes over as coach of WP girls’ team Lady Mallards have top-notch defense, working on offense

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor

LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor

(Nov. 29, 2013) The Worcester Prep girls’ basketball team prides itself on its stellar defense each year. During Monday’s season opener against the Gunston Day Herons in Berlin, the Lady Mallards nearly held their opponent scoreless. Worcester scored 52 points before Gunston netted its first basket of the Coach Holland night with 2:30 left in the game. The Mallards won 56-2. Junior point guard Sophie Brennan led the Prep squad with 18 points. Senior captain Kristen Shriver, who missed the last two seasons because of a knee injury, chipped in with 12 points. Coach Simona Holland was pleased with her players’ performance in the first game of the season. Holland was the head JV coach the last two years before taking over the varsity program this season. “I would just like to thank my boss, Buck Mann, for letting me do this, and I would like to thank my volunteer Coach Fulton Holland for helping out the last three weeks,” Holland said. Mann and Holland’s co-workers attended the game to support her and the Mallards. Holland said six Mallards have played for her and she has worked with nearly all of the other girls at one point, so that made for an easy transition for everyone. “We really like the new coach. She has a lot of fresh, new ideas, so it’s really helping our team,” said senior captain Meg Lingo, a three-year player. “She’s been the JV coach so it was pretty smooth because we were already comfortable with her and her coaching style. I played for her my freshman and sophomore year.” Added senior captain Lilly DiNardo, a four-year player, “Coach Simona is really helping with our fundamentals that we’ve been lacking the last few years. It’s a lot different from last year. I think it’s more structured and more strict, but that’s what we needed because we haven’t won a championship here in like 10 years and that’s something we’ve been wanting to do.” Holland has 13 players on her roster.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

Worcester Prep senior captain Kristen Shriver makes a lay-up during the season opener against Gunston Day Monday in Berlin. Shriver scored 12 points in Worcester’s 56-2 victory.

Seven Mallards have returned as veterans, while six are new to the varsity squad. The team lost two players to graduation from last season, when the Mallards finished with a 12-6 record. Worcester lost in the semifinal round of the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference tournament. Brennan is the only returner who received All-ESIAC honors (Second Team). Top returners include Brennan, DiNardo, Lingo, junior Molly Soule and senior Frankie Willing. “I feel like I will be a great motivator for my team and just be a loud voice and hopefully a good leader,” Lingo said. “I definitely think basketball is a sport you need leadership in. We have six seniors so that’s something we’re not lacking. Everyone’s really dedicated,” DiNardo said. Shriver, junior Natalie Twilley and senior Alie Greer are newcomers who will contribute, Holland said.

The Mallards are athletic and all 13 players have been working hard, the coach said. “They’re a great group,” Holland said. “They’re progressing well.” Added Lingo, “It’s going to be a fun season. I’m really looking forward to it. We have a lot of new people on the team and we’re all meshing really well, so it’s exciting.” The Mallards have been spending time working on their offense to get it at the same level as their defense, Holland said. “I’m really excited. I hope we’ll finish with some good results,” she said. “I hope we can do better than last year, do our best every game and win the championship, but it’s my first year so we’ll see how things go.” Added DiNardo, “I think we’re evenly matched with all the other schools as far as skill-wise. I think all of us agreed we really want to win playoffs because that’s something we’ve never done before.”

(Nov. 29, 2013) The Worcester Prep boys’ basketball team captured its first Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference title since 2007 at the end of the 2012-13 season. The Mallards, who finished with a 173 record last season, hope to take home their second consecutive title this year. The squad got off to a good start Monday, winning the season opener, 68-24, over the Gunston Day Herons in Berlin. “Our ultimate goal, we just want to win the ESIAC championship again and bring that banner here again,” said senior captain Matt Reilly, a four-year player. He was named to the All-ESIAC Second Team last season. Reilly scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds in Monday’s season opener. “Matt will be tough to stop in the halfcourt game. He’s great from everywhere on the court–down low, outside,” Second-year Coach Keith Geiger said after the game. Added Reilly, “I just want to give a lot of credit to our coaches for what they’ve done and their support. As a leader on the team, I want to really help the younger guys and kind of just bring this team together, be a positive influence on them and just have a great season.” Joining Reilly as a team captain is senior point guard Ryan Nally (All-ESIAC First Team). Nally led the Mallards Monday against Gunston. He scored 21 points, had five assists and seven steals. “It will be hard to slow us down with Ryan Nally running the show,” Geiger said. “He’s a fun player to watch and he makes things easy on the rest of the team. He creates easy shots for the rest of the team.” Geiger, (ESIAC Co-Coach of the Year 2012-13) said Reilly and Nally have done a good job stepping up to lead the team. “They always work the hardest, run the fastest and they always ask for more,” Geiger said. Senior Jack Marshall, a four-year player, is also a veteran who will help lead the Mallards “because of my experience. I’ve been here for four years and I know what to do on the court.” “I think we’re looking better than last year,” he said. “I think our bench is a lot deeper this year.” Geiger has 11 players on his roster. About half of the boys are new to varsity, See DEFENSE on Page 34A

Defense steps up to another level, senior Reilly says including sophomore Elio Telo and freshmen Tate Shockley and Owen Nally, who Geiger said have impressed him. Geiger said the Mallards get better every day, their conditioning is improving and they are working hard in practice. The team’s defense is also solid this year, Geiger said. “Defensively, I think Coach Geiger we’ve really stepped it up to another level,” Reilly said. “Defense has always been our strong point, but it’s even stronger this year.” Reilly said this is because the coaching staff has implemented new defensive techniques. Geiger said the team’s strengths is in its defense, transition game and shooting. The goal is to get as many transition points, layups and three pointers as possible. “We lost three starters (to graduation), two were our top scorers that combined for 25 points. We have to make up those points,” Geiger said. “Matt, Ryan and the other guys have to score more.” Geiger said the Mallards have been focusing on their defense and transition

(Nov. 29, 2013) Six Stephen Decatur volleyball players were awarded with AllBayside Conference honors last week. Senior captain Taylor Black and junior Hannah Adkins received First Team accolades. Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer said Black has grown as a player, she is passionate about volleyball and she worked hard to improve her game this season. “When a hitter from the other team was hitting really well, Taylor made it her goal to block her by the end of the match,” Zimmer said. “Taylor was a lot of fun to watch and a great player to coach.” Zimmer said Adkins has also grown into a fantastic player. “She really turned that left arm on this season,” the coach said. “She has natural ability that is only improving each game. I’m excited to see what she will bring next year.” Junior Kayla Heinz and senior captain Katie VanBruggen earned Second Team honors. “Kayla really grew as a setter this year. She busted her butt all year long and was never afraid to ask the coaches what she could do to improve her game,” Zimmer See EACH on Page 35A

Grappling with tragedy

The word “tragedy” is so overused that its impact as a descriptive noun has diminished over the years. Yet, there is no other way to communicate what happened Tuesday at the St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church rectory. Because of the bizarre circumstances of the fire that claimed the lives of the church’s pastor, the Rev. David Dingwall, and John Sterner, a patron of the church’s pantry, the Shepherd’s Crook, there is no way to make sense of what transpired. Hence, it is a tragedy. That is, after all, what a tragedy is: an inexplicably horrible event visited upon the harmless. Such things leave us struggling to end our bewilderment and to replace the emptiness with understanding, but as we try to comprehend the incomprehensible, we find ourselves saying it is a tragedy, because that is all we know. It is a tragedy that people such as John Sterner have no place to go and that a free morning cup of coffee at the rectory is a significant event in that kind of life. It is equally tragic that his state of mind or personal difficulties placed him in such conditions that he came to be on Baltimore Avenue and Third Street Tuesday morning and somehow set himself ablaze before running into the rectory. People can and will speculate why and how that came to be, but will never know. They especially will not know why Father Dingwall, a good man with a wife and three children, and who was in his upstairs office when Sterner entered the building, had to be a victim. That all this occurred just two days before Thanksgiving makes this sad occurrence even more difficult to accept, but as spiritual leaders and philosophers have observed, there is no right time for bad things to happen. They also have noted that as people ask why, they are better off with the question than the answer, because knowing why in situations such as this one would make us insensitive to the suffering that people such as Father Dingwall worked to alleviate. All we can say is that it is a tragedy and we extend our sympathies to the families, friends and parishioners in their time of sorrow.

EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

When Chanukah converged with Thanksgiving PHIL JACOBS ■ Editor So I get that today, Nov. 29, is “Black Friday.” It’s the day that perfectly sane female relatives in my family lose themselves momentarily, set their alarm clocks for 5 in the morning and rush to the mall with thousands of their closest peers. In most years I knew that the retail spotlight was on these days leading up to Christmas. It happens that I’m Jewish. So I’ve gone through in year’s past something called the “December Dilemma.” An aspect of the “Dilemma” is that many “members of the tribe” don’t want to be left out of the fun their gentile friends are having during the holidays. I mean I have Christian friends who put all of their energy, not to mention their money, into Christmas. At my house for Chanukah, we light the candles, bringing light into the winter darkness. We do something fun as a family, like take in a movie together. And we do exchange small presents, but not for all eight days, are you kidding me?

This year, the dilemma is complicated. Chanukah arrives nowhere near Christmas. Chanukah started this past Wednesday night, with the first full day coinciding with Thanksgiving. You know when that last happened? Try 1888. When is it going to happen like this again? Scholars tell us not for another 77,798 years. This is a once in a lifetime convergence. For American Jews, it’s an opportunity to bring two separate holidays together. On Thanksgiving, we are thankful for the freedoms we have as Americans. On Chanukah, we are also thankful that the plans of ancient Greek civilization to snuff out Judaism were overcome. There is a Hebrew calendar based on the moon and sun, and the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the solar cycle. Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013 coincides with the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a holiday for the last Thursday of November in the year 1863. Think of that year would you? The Battle of Gettysburg happened that year, as did the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation.

There has been no shortage of humor and economic gain in all of this as well. Use your favorite search engine and plug in the word “Thanksgivukkah.” A New York kid came up with a “menurky,” a menorah shaped like a turkey. The potato latke or pancake, one of Chanukah’s symbolic foods, is now appearing online with pumpkin ingredients. Latkes are a symbol, not because of the potato, but because of the oil they are cooked in. The ancient Maccabees had enough oil to hold out against their enemies, the forces of King Antiochus IV for one night as they rededicated a desecrated Temple in Jerusalem. The miracle is that the light lasted for eight nights. So, yes, it’s Black Friday today. But it’s really the second day of Chanukah. There’s one “Black” Friday, but there’ still six bright full days left to celebrate light overcoming darkness. In short, we celebrate freedom. Even if it meant stuffing a turkey with potato latkes (pancakes). Wonder what my wife and daughters are coming home with from the mall? Because, as much as I complain, it’s still Black Friday. And Monday. Yep, Monday is Cyber Monday. You can look it up.

By Stewart Dobson

A dog will eat anything. In fact, I knew a woman who, being a strict vegetarian, believed that her dachshund shared her beliefs and fed it accordingly. There is something unnatural, however, about dogs eating tofu, which was the case of the aforementioned pet. The most serious of these consequences is having to live with a bean curd-eating canine in a confined space, or, to put it another way, an explosive dachshund. I’m not saying that dogs won’t eat this stuff, but that they would prefer something a little more robust and/or reeking, or something that has been properly aged under the sofa for several weeks and rediscovered just before beginning to replicate itself. I know this because when we lived out of town and had a yard that was especially suitable for poorly behaving dogs, we liberated from incarceration a particular animal that had never before tasted freedom, must less food of the homemade variety. As it happened, this creature took up residence with us just a few days before I found myself cooking fried chicken for a horde of people who came to witness the maiden voyage of my new outdoor cooker and cast iron skillet. This wasn’t just any run-of-the-mill cast iron frying pan, but an instrument of such great proportions that not only could it accommodate a couple of chickens, but it could do so with enough room left over for an R-1 zoning designation. Naturally, using this particular pan and frying that much poultry required enough oil to lubricate the 1st Armored Division, had it been in the neighborhood. After the feast and my requisite drowsy time, I wandered out to the yard to retrieve the pan and clean it only to find that our hostess apparently had taken care of that duty for me. “Thanks for dumping the oil and cleaning the pan,” I said. “You’re welcome,” she replied, “but I didn’t do it.” “Well, then, who did?” Did I mention that most dogs will eat anything? And that there are consequences? So, yes, our new arrival did spend the better part of the next several days in the landscaping division of the household. We have since relocated to town and, other assertions to the contrary, the move was not related to this incident. Still, I’m careful these days about what I leave out and who I have to let out should I forget that, yes, a dog will eat anything. Well, once anyway.

READERS’ FORUM

Supporters thanked

Editor, I would like to thank those members of the Worcester County Bar Association who contributed to the Bar’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. I also thank the Humphrey’s Foundation and the Ocean City Lion’s Club for contributing funds, as well as the staff of Super Fresh Markets for facilitating delivery of our food. This year, we were able to provide 400 less fortunate families with a complete Thanksgiving dinner that they could prepare in their own homes, consisting of a 15-pound turkey, potatoes, stuffing, yams, green beans and cranberry sauce. We united once again with Worcester County Gold and Pocomoke, Snow Hill, Buckingham and Showell elementary schools to identify those families with children to attempt to reach our goal that no one in our

county should go hungry on Thanksgiving. I acknowledge that our goal is a lofty one that perhaps will never be completely met. We are proud, however, that as our Thanksgiving Food Drive has grown over the past 15 years, we are getting closer. Thank you for being our brother’s/sister’s keeper and attempting to take care of our own. David C. Gaskill Committee On Charitable Endeavors Worcester County Bar Association

Reflect on blessings Editor, During this season of Thanksgiving, it is important to reflect on the blessings of our families and community. The recent Dennis – Bowen tragedy that occurred at Route 113 and Bay Street is a terrible misfortune. We extend our heart-felt condo-

Commended

Editor, It is time to commend the council president and the mayor for their handling of the public comment period at the Nov. 18 meeting of the Mayor and City Council. The apparent decision to listen to citizen input fully before returning comment seems to serve a very useful purpose, namely, elimination of the debating process formerly engaged in by the citizen and the mayor or council member. This change certainly adds to the proper decorum of the meeting and removes some of the previous sideshow antics of some participants. It was particularly nice to see this change in view of the presence of members of the local troop of The Boy Scouts of America, present to observe our government in action. Joe Moran, Ocean City

lences to the loss of Tymeir Dennis and the injury of Tyheim Bowen. The Route 113 safety initiatives proposed recently at the community meeting held at the Flower Street Multi-purpose Building would benefit the town of Berlin and our local residents as they travel on that portion of the highway. Countdown Crosswalks would allow pedestrians to cross safely. Reducing the speed limit would help motorists to realize that Berlin is a town divided by the highway and its citizens frequently cross the road for exercise, shopping, medical appointments and other activities. The Democratic Club of Ocean City/ Berlin supports the safety measures.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

The train garden at His Praise Place in downtown Ocean City features a town, carnival and mountains. Below, Pastor Rich Burkhard paints the steeple of the church for the display.

Train garden on display at His Praise Place in downtown OC NANCY POWELL ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Downtown Ocean City will have a new attraction this holiday season. A train garden will be on display inside His Praise Place, a ministry on Worcester Street across from the municipal parking lot. “It will be up and running by Thanksgiving Day,” said Carl Gray, as he worked on the train garden on Nov. 14. “We’re going to open it up to the public. We want it to coincide with the Winterfest of Lights.” Gray started work on the train garden in early November “because it makes me feel like a kid. And it’s for Christmas and for the homeless, who don’t have anything nice to look at.” He has been interested in trains and train sets since his grandmother bought him a train set when he was about 6 years old. Some of the train cars, the N scale and O scale cars, in the display are his. Gray, a West Ocean City resident who has worked for more than 20 years maintaining, inspecting and running rides at Trimpers Rides, had been busy making

items to enhance the train garden. He was painting tiny pieces of plastic that would be painstakingly put together to form a carousel. “We’ll have a town and a carnival,” Gray said. “With real rides.” The train garden has food stands and carnival games. It also has handmade mountains, made with cardboard, paper bag and paint. “It’s something I came up with,” Gray said. “Scrunch up the paper bags, wet them. Then squeeze the water out and drape over the cardboard. Then we use gray and white paint and a bit of black to paint the mountains.” His Praise Place had a train garden last year, “but nothing like this,” Gray said. Last year’s display was considerably smaller than the present three-level, 4-foot by 16-foot train garden. “This has become a project.” Also working on the project is Pastor Rich Burkhard, who was painting the steeple of a church for the town portion of the train garden. Like Gray, Burkhard has contributed his own toy trains and other items for the display. He has always loved trains, but his reason for toiling on the train garden

is for others. “It’s to show people who think the world doesn’t even know they exist that they are worth this kind of effort,” Burkhard said. “This is everybody’s train garden.” Everyone is invited to view the train garden for free, but donations are accepted. Proceeds will go to purchase items for the food pantry at His Praise Place, which serves free dinners 5-7 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. “We hope people donate so we have enough food to get through the winter,” Burkhard said.

(Nov. 29, 2013) The TownCenter, located on 67th Street, bayside, will host its inaugural Surfin’ Santa & Candywalk on Saturday Nov. 30. The event, which also coincides with Small Business Saturday, will feature several family-friendly activities including pictures with Santa Claus, candy provided by the businesses inside the TownCenter, performances of Christmas songs by a steel drum band, and the official lighting of two 20-foot Christmas trees that will be displayed outside of the TownCenter throughout the holiday season. Coordinator of the festivities, Patti Miller, said the event follows the great success of the Halloween Costume parade held at the end of October. “It’s simply just a fun thing to do. We realized that the Midtown Boardwalk is such a great place for families and friends to gather,” Miller said. The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. when the two Christmas trees will be lit. The lighting will cue the entrance of “Surfin Santa” who will ride into the parking lot, surf board in hand, ready to hear the Christmas wishes of all of the children in attendance that are between the ages of 1-12. After each child has their picture taken with Mr. Claus, they will be given a stocking to carry as they stop by each business to receive special treats and toys. Participating businesses include SweetFrog Premium Frozen Yogurt, which will be offering a “Fill up a cup for $4” deal throughout November and during the event. Other participating stores include the Kite Loft, Ron Jon Surf Shop, Alexis Jade Boutique, Olde English Fish, Chips & Chicken, Atlantic Gold Jewelers, Dolle’s Candyland, Old Pro Golf, Longboard Cafe and Summer House Trading Co. All stores will be offering 10 percent off products throughout the day Nov. 30. The Midtown Boardwalk has also teamed up with United Way, an organization devoted to assisting the lives of the homeless, to bring children living in shelters to the event to create holiday joy among them. Everyone is invited. Large groups interested in attending should contact Miller at 443-880-7795.

That’s why she helped start Light Up Downtown, an effort to bring Christmas spirit back to the resort’s downtown area and keep visitors coming to stores throughout the season. Last year’s event “was very successful,” she said, with around 100 gathering in Sunset Park on South Philadelphia Avenue each night. There’s been a resurgence of lights south of 14th Street, Phillips said. “The businesses are trying to stay open,” she said, “and they’re lighting up.” Residents are also joining in and putting up Christmas lights. “Each year, we see more lights going up,” said Glenn Irwin, executive director for the Ocean City Development Corporation. “It’s definitely getting there.” The OCDC co-sponsors Light Up

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your Arian penchant for impatience shows, as you consider passing a problemprone project on to someone else. Best advice: Stay with it and work out those snarls yourself. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Even patient Bovines can be frustrated when carefully made plans go awry. But crank up that “stick-to-it-ivity” you do so well, and you’ll soon find that your schedule is back in sync. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your aspect favors using more resourceful means in dealing with a workplace situation. Some discreet checking around could help shed light on the root cause of the problem. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You show an unusually strong streak of stubbornness in rejecting suggestions from friends and/or family members early in the week. But you become more receptive by the week’s end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat might find a gentler approach more effective when dealing with those who resist needed changes. Remember, the word “persuasion” starts with the sound “purr.” VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A disappointing experience with someone you felt you could trust can be painful. But there just might be more to this situation than you’re aware of. Press for an explanation. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Changing your views about something you believe in isn’t easy. But you might reconsider as the facts come in. Keep your mind open, even if you’re uneasy about what you might learn. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might have to do some serious shifting of gears to get your project back on track. But cheer up. Your hard work starts to produce some positive results by the week’s end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unsettling mood at the start of the week soon lifts and gives way to a more positive attitude as you find fun and friendship beginning to dominate your aspect. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A delay in firming up holiday plans could work to your advantage. Use this time to scout out possibilities that might be more in line with what those close to you would prefer. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Some people might question some of the new friends you’ve welcomed into your life. But your ability to see beyond the obvious helps you recognize how special they are. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Financial matters can be especially tricky this week. It’s best to follow a conservative investment path for now, and wait for a more fortuitous time to take a bolder approach. BORN THIS WEEK: Your warmth, your humor and your genuine concern for others make you someone people love to keep close to their lives.

Use Thanksgiving leftovers to make turnip, turkey hash FOOD FOR THOUGHT DEBORAH LEE WALKER  Contributing Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Clementine Paddleford was one of the most widely read and best known food editors in the world. She was the Nellie Bly of culinary journalism; no story was too small and no destination was too far. She became a pilot so she could fly around the country to report on America’s many regional cuisines. Her position as a contributing writer for the New York Herald-Tribute, the Sunday newspaper supplement which appeared in The Times, and Gourmet magazine pivoted her to a household name. Paddleford’s devotion to truth and taste gave her the foundation to define American culture. There is no question she was ahead of her time and enticed this nation’s voracious appetite for food. Her intensively researched articles and whimsical style of writing was a precursor of celebrity chefs and the advent of television cookery. Clementine is no longer with us but her legacy lives on. Her most notorious book, “How America Eats,” is literally a stroll down memory lane. The Thanksgiving feast is over and the refrigerator is packed with leftovers. How would Pad-

dleford approach a recipe for this particular time of year? First, she would research the original Thanksgiving menu to make sure the feature ingredient was actually part of the festivities. The native New England inhabitants were known to have eaten plant roots such as Indian turnips and it is more than likely they were served at the famous extensive meal. Turnips are one of the earliest cultivated vegetables and are thought to have originated in Northern Europe about 2000 B.C. They were a very important food for the Romans and a staple across Europe before the potato. The turnip spread from the classical world through Asia to N. China. Turnips can have a mild, slightly sweet flavor. The younger and the smaller they are, the better they will taste. So search your grocer’s produce display for turnips with a diameter of 3 inches or less. Turnips are a good source of Vitamin C, potassium, and iron. Best of all they only have 36 calories per cup. Contrary to popular belief, turnips can be eaten raw. The Chinese have traditionally cooked turnips by roasting; the high temperature See TURNIP on Page 9B

Hang on to sense of humor because you’ll need it, Kemp says SENIOR SLANT

Adding, ‘especially when you’re going over the hill’ IRISH KEMP  Contributing Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. In my book, not necessarily true. There is a time for everything. Hang on to that sense of humor – you’ll need it especially when you’re going over the hill. With a passel of eight, as Dobson so aptly put it, my sense of humor crashed big time in the days of yore. To put it mildly, I SPOKE IN A LOUD VOICE. Nowadays, no one hears me. I assume it’s my corporal punishment for my sins

of yore. Those kids could feign deafness at a very early age. I knew they could hear me loud and clear back then. Trust me, there is nothing wrong with my baby boomers’ “forgetteries” these days. They refuse to let loose of the classics. Their claims of the increduously, horrible things I’d scream, such as, “I’ll be glad when you grow up and leave home. ” Or, “If you take one more step onto that wet kitchen floor, I’ll break your leg... for you! ” All that fell on deaf ears. Two can play that game: Good grief! Thanksgiving’s over? Santa Claus is in town? Surely they jest. Talk about sticker shock, how ‘bout the

price of turkey these days? The Kemps didn’t pay that that kind of cash for our wedding license or rings. Back in the olden days, you could have had a baby delivered for free. How do I know? Cuz my mom told me so. My brother arrived on Thanksgiving day via the stork. Besides what could a stork do with a wing full of cash? Many happy returns to November birthday kid Jo Alexander, and to the December birthday kids the likes of Jim Stone, Rita Salerno Jack Fink, Martha Stone, Rick Meehan, Mary Ellen Arena, Joe Cain, Marilyn Pietruska, Bob Bowman, Kandy Bartholomew. Vern Becker, Pat Baisley, Phil Guarino and Gerry Furst. Go outta your way to wish them a happy birthday and be sure to give ‘em a hug for me. This just came to me. Be generous, don’t combine it with your Christmas hug. Speaking of gifts, early on, I want to

thank my Harpoon Hanna’s happy hour crew for their ever-so-generous response to my request for boxes of cereal. Ocean City’s St. Peters welcomed your gift with open arms. Albeit a holiday or not, over the years, this group has always been willing and ready to help. As for Christmas giving for the less fortunate, I’m open for any innovative ideas. Also out there celebrating their goldenplus anniversary by volunteering around our town are Jim and Martha Stone. Oh yeah, the aforementioned birthday kids. Me and my big mouth. I’m always questioning the average male’s deep faith in the weatherman’s predictions. When my son, Mike, warned me of the incoming, extremely cold weather last weekend, I scoffed openly about the prediction. He See NORTHSIDE on Page 9B

Dine in style at ACS Holiday Wrappings fashion show, lunch CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) Styles from 15 local clothiers and a hot lunch are on the menu for the 25th annual Holiday Wrappings fashion show and luncheon, an event to benefit the American Cancer Society, Tuesday, Dec. 10. Tickets should be reserved by Monday, Dec. 2, for the show. Special this year, Holiday Wrappings will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ACS with a short, informational video replacing the traditional guest speaker at the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are leaps and bounds where the America Cancer Society has come in 100 years,â&#x20AC;? said Holiday Wrappings chairwoman Dawne Pappas, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteered with the ACS for more than 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very dear to my heart,â&#x20AC;? Pappas

said of the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my mom over the summer to a brain tumor.â&#x20AC;? She said many who participate in the show have also been touched by cancer, either personally or through a loved one. Holiday Wrappings drew about 500 people last year, raising around $34,000 for the American Cancer Society, which funds local programs including Road to Recovery, Man to Man, Look Good Feel Better and Reach to Recovery, Pappas said. The funds raised arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earmarked for breast cancer or any specific type of cancer research, she said. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Wrappings show will feature styles from 15 local stores, including Raggamuffin and Bungalow Seven, showcasing outfits from childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes to bridal fashion. All of the models are all locals, Pappas said. There will be a hot lunch featuring

chicken stuffed with acorn squash catered by Centerplate included in the price of the ticket. Snow Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miss Patti Cake will dish up cupcakes for the event. An auction for items such as airline tickets with accommodation for Miami Beach, cocktail parties at restaurants like Longboard CafĂŠ and Gallaxy 66 Bar & Grille, jewelry and artwork will take place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is donated by the businesses,â&#x20AC;? Pappas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely kind to us.â&#x20AC;? Expect to hear tunes from Irie radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DJ Batman, a staple at the annual show, and a performance by Seaside Dance Academy. Convention center doors open at 10:30 a.m. with a warm lunch at noon and the fashion show kicking off at 1 p.m. Though most attendees are women, there are always a handful of men, including Pappasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grandfather, at the event.

The fashion show will end around 2 p.m., allowing everyone to get home before school lets out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great wintertime event,â&#x20AC;? Pappas said. Reserve a ticket to the 2013 Holiday Wrappings fashion show and luncheon at the convention center box office or by visiting www.acsholidaywrappings.org.

Pizza with Santa Dec. 4 at park (Nov. 29, 2013) Families may join Santa as he helps Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department kick off the holiday season on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Boys and girls, pre-K through third grades are invited to attend the annual “Pizza with Santa Party” at Northside Park. In addition to pizza and other light refreshments, children will enjoy arts and crafts, cookie-decorating, a visit with Santa and a train ride through the Winterfest of Lights. The party will take place indoors at the Northside Park Recreation Complex, at 200 125th Street, in Ocean City; the train ride will occur in the park itself.

The price is $8 for each Ocean City child resident and $10 for each non-resident child. Adults are observers and not participants, and therefore, they pay only a train fee, if they wish join the train ride. A special fee of $4 per adult is being offered for parents or guardians who would like to ride the Winterfest train along with the group. Pre-registration is mandatory by Monday, Dec. 2. Space is limited. To register online, visit www.oceancitymd.gov or stop by Northside Park for a registration form. For additional information, contact Lynda Brittingham at 410-2500125.

NOVEMBER 29, 2013

ACT participates in #GivingTuesday (Nov. 29, 2013) Assateague Coastal Trust is part of the second annual #GivingTuesday, a nationwide movement that harnesses the power of a blend of partners–charities, families, businesses and individuals–to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 3, #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create an opening day for giving. Seeing an opportunity to channel the spirit of the holiday season to inspire action around charitable giving, a group of friends, partners and philanthropy experts, led by the 92nd Street Y, joined last year to find ways to promote and celebrate the American tradition of giving. Leaders in philanthropy, social media and grassroots organizing joined to explore what is working in modern philanthropy and how to expand these innovations throughout the philanthropic sector. The result was Giving Tuesday. “We see Giving Tuesday as an innovative way to not only engage our supporters, but to celebrate and encourage the spirit of charitable giving for the whole community, no matter what the cause,” said ACT Development Director Steve Farr. “The holidays are so focused on buying and consuming, and

Gold’s Gym also has an in-house massage studio, available for members as well as non-members, and is one of few local gyms with access to a pool and offering pool classes. The gym has around 400 members, Baldwin said. Despite the changes, Baldwin said he didn’t need to do much when he took over Gold’s Gym. “I’ve been very blessed. Tammy (China, the previous owner)— she did a great job,” he said. Of the staff he inherited, he added: “We have great people who work here.” Baldwin, originally of Crofton, had spent summers in Ocean City for years. He moved here full-time about a year ago. Those interested can check out Gold’s Gym at its open house Jan. 1-5, when there will be a preview of the gym’s new, busier group fitness schedule. Those keen

(Nov. 29, 2013) The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently issued the TILA-RESPA final rule. This rule improves the way consumers receive information about mortgage loans, both when they apply and when they’re getting ready to close. The CFPB publishes rules and forms that combine certain disclosures that consumers receive in connection with applying for and closing on a mortgage loan under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). The CFPB is trying to make it to easier for consumers to shop effectively for mortgages and to make the decisions that work for them. This rule is a key part of that effort, and they have tested the new disclosures with consumers, as well as industry professionals who will have to explain them to consumers. The National Association of Realtors President, Steve Brown, said, “Realtors® applaud new rules from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that will help home buyers receive timely, accurate, and easy-to-understand information about their mortgage loan before closing. “Real estate is the largest financial investment most people will make in their lifetime and it’s crucial that consumers understand all of the costs and responsibilities of homeownership before signing on the dotted line. “The new rules will align and simplify the disclosure requirements from the Truth in Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act which will streamline the closing process.” The final rule contains new rules and forms for two disclosure forms consumers receive in the process of getting a mortgage loan: the Loan Estimate, which comes three business days after application, and the Closing Disclosure, which comes three business days before closing on the loan. These disclosures are required by the Truth in Lending Act and the Real Estate

Gold’s Gym’s new owner Howard Baldwin went from 236 to 169 pounds after he started working out. He’s revamping the gym in the Gold Coast Mall on 115th Street, offering more group classes, new cardio equipment and extended childcare hours.

It’s not just for bodybuilders Gold’s Gym revamp adds yoga, Pilates along with reopening club for kids CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 29, 2013) The new owner of Gold’s Gym in the 115th Street Gold Coast Mall is revamping the fitness center, offering more group classes, expanding the cardio center and offering join-up deals that he hopes will attract locals. “This is not just a body builder’s gym. I want everyone who comes in here to feel comfortable,” Gold’s Owner Howard Baldwin Jr. said. The former employee of the Pittsburg Penguins weighed in at well over 200 pounds before he “caught the bug” and said he understands that joining a gym can be intimidating. To help new members feel at home, Baldwin’s giving everyone who purchases a full-year membership pass five free personal train-

ing sessions — one to shake their nerves, two to get acquainted with the equipment, another to ask questions and a final session for follow-up, he said. Another way Gold’s is welcoming new members is waiving the join fee for a yearlong membership. Regular clients can expect to see a new juice bar and pro shop by the new year, too, Gold’s new Manager Sandra Rossner said. “The face is changing,” she said. “We are trying to improve the… look and feel of the gym.” Gold’s renovated its former “Pink Room,” creating a mind and body room that will house new Pilates and yoga classes. The gym will also offer more Les Mills programs and Insanity classes starting in the new year, Rossner said. The gym is also home to new cardio equipment and the fitness area is being expanded, Baldwin said. Other changes are in the works, including a new floor and improved sound system in the group fitness room. Gold’s has reopened its kid’s club, a

Mortgage info rules redefined Settlement Procedures Act. The new forms integrate existing disclosures and implement some new disclosure requirements from the Dodd-Frank Act. The rule also offers some more protections for consumers. For example, consumers must receive their Closing Disclosure three business days before closing on the loan so they have time to review it. Continued from Page 1C

The final rule also limits the circumstances in which consumers will have to pay more for settlement services than the estimate they received. The CFPB also states the new forms are shorter than the forms under current law. These disclosures and requirements will be effective Aug. 1, 2015.

AGH accredited for ultrasound (Nov. 29, 2013) Atlantic General Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsy as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology. Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body parts to improve how physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Ultrasound imaging of the breast produces a picture of the internal structures of the breast. It is also used to helps guide needle biopsies of the breast to remove small portions of tissue for testing. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by boardcertified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment,

quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement. “We are very proud of this accreditation for the breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided breast biopsy procedures performed at our Women’s Diagnostic Center,” said Nancy Helgeson, lead technologist and support staff supervisor of the Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center at Atlantic General Hospital. This accreditation demonstrates that we are a full-care facility dedicated to serving all of our patients’ breast health needs – from routine screening and diagnostic mammography to biopsy to treatment.” The Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center also holds a long-standing ACR accreditation for mammography and is seeking accreditation for stereotactic breast biopsy to become a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.
