If there was a headline to be written for all that was said this week over the city’s Performing Arts Center, and the petition to stop its financing, it would probably be “confused persons still confused; confusion ensues.” In all likelihood, there is little that could be said in the space of a city council meeting, or any other venue for that matter, that would completely assuage the suspicions of either those who support the

referendum effort or those who do not. As is the case with many of the other financial issues the city tackles, the Performing Arts Center debate is itself a product of the natural growth of city government. As the resort grows, and the dollar figures increase, the stakes become higher – while the margin of return becomes lower. These “problems of success” can be a good or a bad thing, depending on your viewpoint. One of the key issues taken up by See FAITH on Page 4A

Opponents allegedly leveraging endowment snafu against Davies Davies was joined by her son-inlaw, Hal Adkins, whom she had asked to speak on her behalf. Adkins is the public works director for the Town of Ocean City, but was not speaking in any official capacity that evening. “Kenille is not retiring. She is resigning under duress,” Adkins said. “Certain people chose to take what were petty issues … and put the screws, so to speak, to Kenille.” Although none of Ocean City Today’s sources would speak on the record, given the tenuous legal situation involved, the intrigue surrounding Davies’ ouster has been widely acknowledged. In essence, two members of the society’s board, who have had longstanding differences with Davies, leveraged a recent incident of alleged fiscal mismanagement against her. According to sources, the humane society had at one point been bequeathed a substantial sum of money, nearly $800,000, from the estate of a Snow Hill woman who had passed away. This money, per the deceased’s will, was to be set up as an endowment to the humane society. Under the arrangement, the money was to be invested and the subsequent capital gains used to fund the organization’s operations. The principal in-

However, the attorney responsible endowment. “They shouldn’t have tapped into it, for the estate may not have made it clear that the bequest was under such but at least they used it for the ania restriction, and simply signed off on mals,” a source said. “Unfortunately, you had two people who were already the transfer with no oversight.

But regardless of

where she would have to legally defend herself with her own money, and she’s not in a position to do that,” Adkins said. Davies receives a salary of $15,000 per year for her work as the humane society director. By all accounts, she works more than a full-time schedule, but this arrangement is entirely informal, as is the case with much of the humane society’s organization. Technically speaking, Davies is the only legally recognized member of the group’s board, since it has never held a charter-recognized general meeting since Davies founded the group in 1977. This lack of formal accountability, sources say, is why her opposing board members were able to present a strong case against Davies. Further, it was discovered during the legal battle that the endowment funds might have been given to the humane society in error. The will read that the money was to be given to the “Worcester County Humane Society, founded 1954.” Such an organization does not exist, but was apparently overlooked by the attorney handling the distribution. Should legal authorities determine that the bequest went to the wrong party, the money would have to be returned to the estate, for re-distribution See LEADERSHIP on Page 4A

Faith more effective than facts when predicting city’s future Tony Christ’s Ocean City Taxpayers for Social Justice – the group circulating the petition – is that, while the city’s bond issuance document states that the $8.3 million being borrowed for the center will be paid back using proceeds from the city’s food tax, another clause states that the city will levy an ad valorem tax if this funding is insufficient. Simply put, the city will pay its construction debt with property taxes if it doesn’t have enough food tax money. “It says that at least twice in the ordinance,” said opposition group supporter Ellie Diegelmann. “You can build the center all you want, just don’t make us pay for it when it comes up deficient.” However, Mayor Rick Meehan –

Continued from Page 1A

an ardent supporter of the center project – pointed out that there is no other way to issue the bond at the same cost. If the town were to sell its debt as being entirely revenue-dependent, instead of simply supported by a specific user fee such as food tax, it would get a much less favorable interest rate. “It has to be backed with the full faith and credit of the town,” Meehan said. “If it were approved as a revenue bond, the interest rate would be much higher.” In other words, the only way to finance such a high-level capital improvement is to put up the city’s tax base as collateral. Not that it will actually come to this – the city’s food tax, which charges a half-percent on all bar See GROWTH on Page 5A

Leadership, finances, lease of facility create tenuous position to those other charities in the will that are still in existence. This will leave the humane society in a tenuous position. According to sources, most of the board will depart with Davies at the end of the month, leaving the organization in the control of just a pair of board members. Further, the organization will be stripped of the funds on which it relies. “I hope the public here can help in some way, because I feel sorry if the shelter is going to be run by people like that,” Davies said. In her remarks Friday, Davies said she had been appalled by the behavior of those who had ousted her. “When you get a seven-page letter that slanders you and then says at the end, ‘when you leave smoothly, please don’t harm the animals,’ that hurts more than anything,” she said. Further, the society also runs the Continued from Page 3A

risk of having its lease with the Town of Ocean City terminated. The Worcester County Humane Society animal shelter was built in 1989 by the city, on city-owned property adjacent to what, in 1991, would become Eagle’s Landing golf course. Since then, city officials have wanted the humane society to relocate to make more space for the municipal course. The society’s lease will be up for renewal soon, and the turmoil could give the city a reason to put a stop to the agreement. If that were to happen, the society would likely cease to exist. But that would leave the door open for the establishment of a new, independent humane society on another property. “They have won the battle, but I assure you, with the friendship that is here this evening on behalf of Kenille, they may well lose the war,” Adkins said.

Growth happens on bigger risks, slimmer margins as city expands and restaurant food sales – has reliability generated $1.2 million per year. Further, the city has almost $7.4 million in unspent food tax revenue, which can only be used, per the city’s partnership agreement with the state, on capital improvements at the convention center. “Since the money has proven to be there, why would we pay a higher interest rate?” Meehan asked rhetorically. Unless someone has evidence that the restaurant industry will collapse in the next 10 years, there really is no reason to think that the city intends to gouge its taxpayers for the bill. The reason anyone would oppose such a borrowing scheme, then, is out of principle. In that case, there is no magic number that will decide the argument, despite the insistence of both sides that the other get the right facts. Those facts themselves are open to interpretation. The 2010 study done by Crossroads Consulting Services, as noted this week by Council Secretary Mary Knight, estimates $3.2 to $3.9 million of new spending in the resort as a result of the performing arts venue. Direct revenue to the convention center, however, is estimated at

‘Ghost ship’ turns out to be houseboat cut loose during tow; owner to pay restitution CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

(Nov. 8, 2013) The mystery behind the boat that washed ashore on Assateague’s beach last week has been solved, laying to rest rumors surrounding what came to be known as the “ghost ship” after its Halloween appearance dazzled visitors. “Sorry, no ghosts around,” said Ted Morlock, Assateague Island National Seashore chief ranger in an e-mail Tuesday. The 40-foot houseboat appeared on Assateague’s beach Wednesday evening, lodged in the sand near the Over-Sand Vehicle (OSV) entrance, near the 17-kilometer marker, said Assateague’s Assistant Chief of Interpretation and Education Liz Davis. Visitors soon stumbled on the “ghost ship.” “It seemed like a really old house boat,” said photographer Matt Landon, who came to shoot the ship on Halloween. “It was pretty cool. It was definitely kind of spooky.” By the time Landon returned to the beach on Friday, however, high waves from a lunar tide had taken their toll on the boat. Though several stories surrounded the ship’s appearance, “what had happened was clear to us right from the start,” Morlock said. The boat’s owner, a South Carolina man, was towing the houseboat he had purchased in New Jersey to his home state when the project became dangerous, causing him to cut the ship loose, Morlock said. A park ranger discovered the boat on the beach around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30. “Because it posed no environmental or significant risk to

anyone, we decided to leave it for the evening and deal with it in the morning when it would be safer,” Morlock said. By then, Assateague staff had used the boat’s hull identification number to get the boat’s information from the Coast Guard and contacted the owner. “He was going to come back in 10 days, but the boat was showing signs that it wasn’t going to last

that long,” Davis said. “Over the next two days, it came apart.” Maintenance workers arrived on their day off, Sunday, with some heavy equipment and removed the boat’s remains, she said. According to Murlock, criminal charges and restitution for the cost of removing the boat are pending for the owner of the now-defunct “ghost ship.” Fax 410-213-2151

(Nov. 8, 2013) City transportation authorities have found no further cause for concern after investigating a new account of the fire that destroyed a city bus in August, 2012. “It appears the fire started on the left

side of the engine compartment,” city Transportation Superintendent George Thornes wrote this past week. “Immediately after this fire, busses of the same make and model were placed out of service. “ On Aug. 6 of last year, just after 6 a.m., city police and fire personnel were called to Golf Course Road in West Ocean City for a vehicle fire. A city shuttle bus, on its route between the Inlet, White Marlin Mall, and Park-and-Ride, had apparently burst into flames.

were unharmed, and news of the incident soon faded. Last September, the passenger of the bus, Lawrence Ryder, wrote a letter to this newspaper and to city officials lamenting the lack of attention to the incident. After the fire, Ryder said no one from the city had spoken with him, or even acknowledged that he had been a witness to the incident. He waited in the rain for the next available Shore Transit bus to arrive to take him back to Salisbury. “It has been over a year now,” Ryder wrote. “I have yet to hear from the Ocean City bus line. All I want to know is why I was ignored and left standing in the pouring rain?” Even more troubling, Ryder said, was the fact that the bus’ driver had been told to continue his run even though he had radioed several times to the dispatch center that the bus smelled like it was burning and was performing erratically. Ryder and the driver exited the bus only after the flames erupted. After Ryder’s letter, Thornes re-investigated the incident, but said last week that he found no evidence of misjudgement. “Employees are taught to recognize a possible threat or danger and how to respond accordingly,” Thornes wrote. “The evacuation process is also a part of their training.  Bus drivers are

the captains of their ship; they have to make the decision for any given situation while on the street.” Ryder had also claimed that he had been told of buses of the same model experiencing similar traumatic problems. However, the city has found no reason to believe that any of its remaining buses pose a threat. “The [Ocean City] Service Center inspected all these busses, paying particularly close attention to electrical wiring, fuel lines, oil or fuel leaks,” Thornes said. “The Ocean City Fire Department, the Maryland State Police Commercial Truck Division, along with Ocean City’s Fleet Manager inspected the burned bus. An exact cause of the fire has not been determined.” “As far as other busses of the exact same make, model, and year, the manufacturer is not aware of any fires.  This particular bus has not been recalled by the manufacturer or recommended to be by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.” Although run by the city’s Public Works Department, Ocean City’s bus service falls under the purview of the Maryland Transit Authority, which shoulders 90 percent of the service’s annual capital costs – namely bus replacement - of around $3.5 million.

Questions over follow-through continue after ad contract debacle Tension about assumption of policy remains between councilman, city manager ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

(Nov. 8, 2013) In a meeting where the bulk of the night’s comments – especially with regard to the petition against the performing arts center project – had all the precision of a sawn-off shotgun, at least one issue was extremely pointed. Councilman Brent Ashley is still skeptical of City Manager David Recor’s follow-through. “On Aug. 20 of 2012, the council voted unanimously to issue an RFP [request for proposals] for horseback rides on the beach,” Ashley said. He gathered, through later notes from city staff meetings, that the bid documents had been drawn up and submitted to Recor for further discussion with the council. This apparently never happened. “It was given to you…but it never came back to the full council,” Ashley alleged. Recor said he could not recall that specific request. But his suspicion was clearly that Ashley was less concerned with the policy itself and more concerned with making a point. “Why do you wait until Monday night to do this, instead of just picking up the phone and having a conversation with me about it?” Recor fired back. “I’m just saying ‘can you find out?’” Ashley maintained. “I just want to get it on record that it was voted on unan-

Resort bus system one of state’s most financially effective The city itself contributes around $1.85 million each year to cover the system’s remaining operating costs. Despite this expense, Ocean City’s bus service is a significantly better revenuegenerator than most other MTA systems. The operation is projected to bring in $2,443,618 in fare revenue this fiscal year, meaning that ridership pays for 46 percent of the operation. This ratio, known as the fare box recovery ratio, is generally seen as a gauge of how effective a public transportation system is. Ocean City is the state’s fourthlargest public transportation network, behind the City of Baltimore and Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. However, those systems have fare box recovery ratios of 36, 20, and 10 percent, respectively.

imously but I haven’t seen it.” The last time Ashley asked Recor to investigate a missing RFP, however, it resulted in considerable recrimination for Recor and the council. In September, Ashley had inquired as to when the city would be going back out to bid on its marketing contract, currently held by MGH Advertising - an issue of previous debate. In August of 2012, council voted 4to-3 to give MGH the required 120 days notice and re-bid the contract before the end of the year. However, that decision was reversed, and the contract extended, after the city’s Tourism Advisory Board submitted that the town’s stakeholders would not have enough time to give input and make a decision before the December expiration.

However, when Ashley brought the issue up again this year, Recor and other city officials seemed to be under the impression that the contract was good through 2014 and that MGH’s status was a non-issue. This was not the case, as far as the council was concerned, Ashley pointed out. It was soon discovered that an RFP had not been developed and that, with the passage of the August notice deadline, MGH’s contract was in fact good through 2014. The clear implication from Ashley was that the idea had been dropped after the November 2012 elections, when the council’s majority power had changed hands to a group more favorable to MGH. Even still, Ashley noted, the issue should have come back to the new council so that a new direction

could be publicly debated. In a terse exchange, Recor finally told Ashley that “I’m not going to offer you an excuse as to why it didn’t happen, I’m just going to say that it didn’t happen.” At the council’s request, City Solicitor Guy Ayres had looked into the legal language of the contract to determine if last year’s discussion provided sufficient notice of termination for the upcoming year, which he said this week it was not. “The motion that was on the floor by Mr. (Doug) Cymek, I believe, and that was voted on was not sufficient because the contract was entered into subsequent to that, and it had a provision that you had to provide notice, and that notice was never given,” Ayres said.

(Nov. 8, 2013) Accused murderer Matthew Nicholas Burton is appealing a judge’s order for extradition to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. In Circuit Court in Snow Hill on Monday, Judge Theodore Eschenburg denied Burton’s petition for an immediate stay of extradition and ordered him to be extradited to Delaware to stand trial in the June 2012 kidnapping, rape and murder of Nicole Bennett, a mother of three who worked at the church where Burton was custodian. Burton was arrested near Rehoboth the month following the murder and was charged in Maryland with first-degree murder and other crimes. Bennett’s body had been found in a ditch embankment near Whaleyville in Worcester County. During the on-going investigation, investigators determined the crime occurred in Delaware, and Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby dropped charges in this state. Charges were then filed in Delaware, but Burton remains incarcerated in the Worcester County Jail and is fighting extradition, which Gov. Martin O’Malley had approved.

Ocean City, Worcester still at odds over routing of tourism grant Town pressing for direct control instead of county holding separate fund ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) If the rule of thumb for retailers is that it’s never too early to start shopping for Christmas, then the rule of thumb for government is that it’s never too early to start fighting about next year’s budget. That would be the situation for the coming fiscal season as well, as a number of officials have indicated that Worcester County’s tourism grants to Ocean City will be the issue du jour. “For 99.9 percent of people, they’d be very happy [with the current arrangement],” said Worcester County Commissioners President Bud Church. “I’m not sure where the city’s discontent with the county comes from, but it’s unfounded.” To hear the city tell it, however, the county is placing undue restrictions on the city’s tourism dollars in an attempt to piggyback off the resort’s marketing. “It’s essentially de-valuing our expenditure of $270,000 in advertising,” said Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan.

According to Worcester’s tourism The controversy stems from a unique financing arrangement pio- office, the state’s contribution to the neered last fiscal year by the county. county jumped $73,000 to $169,000 Before the 2009-2010 fiscal year, the in grants simply because the city’s county gave the city $300,000 for tourism grant was listed on the tourism spending.

The city still gets its collapsed and property values – and money, but the county gets more. “The county’s reasoning was that by the county tax base – that number was doing so, we got additional funds from cut 10 percent to $270,000.

be shown whose Web site is whose. “We’re spending $5 million to promote ococean.com,” Meehan said. “We don’t want to be saddled with putting up two Web sites.” Due to the city’s gripe, the county will be giving the city an additional $300,000 in the current fiscal year that will go straight into the city’s tourism account, with no restriction. The $570,000 combined value of that extra contribution and the earmarked funds held by the county tourism bureau is more than the city has ever gotten in marketing dollars from the county, even during the early-2000s boom years. Meehan, however, said he is still frustrated by the county’s insistence that part of the money be routed through its own tourism bureau. “Honestly, I’d rather compensate them for the extra $70,000 they get from the state, and just take $200,000 instead that we can use however we want,” he said. But many in the county are apparently skeptical that the city’s insistence on not using that specific $270,000 on print advertising isn’t just a means to make waves and exert its fiscal independence from the surrounding jurisdiction. “I don’t know where his [Meehan’s] See MAYOR on Page 15A

In order to satisfy the city, the county offers a hefty volume of grants – roughly $4.3 million this year – to the city. But many City Hall officials, such as Meehan, submit that the county would be better off deferring to the city instead of appeasing it. “Look at it this way – they’re building a huge new Holiday Inn in West Ocean City,” Meehan said. “The county is getting thousands in permitting fees and thousands more in taxes every year from that.

argument is,” Church said. “It’s been brought up with the county commissioners, but I honestly don’t’ see it changing.” “I’m aware that the mayor and the commissioners have gone ‘round about it,” Higgins said. “I know [the city] has an advertising company [MGH Advertising] that they would rather funnel all their money through … and we understand that desire.” The county’s tourism grant to the city is just one part of the ongoing battle between the two entities over matters of finance. The city has long desired a tax differential agreement with the county, whereby properties within the city limits would pay a lower tax rate to the county than properties elsewhere in Worcester. City properties should be contributing less to the county, city officials argue, since resort government provides a number of its own services that replace the same services offered by the county. For instance, the city runs its own police and fire services, as well as zoning and building inspection, but still pays a full burden of county property taxes that fund similar countylevel services that are only used outside of the city. According to the city’s most recent study, it pays $17 million in property tax to the county that pays for services resort

Substation on 138th to be online by year end; tests underway ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

CHECK US OUT ON FACEBOOK www.facebook.com/oceancitytoday

(Nov. 8, 2013) When Delmarva Power and Light’s new electrical equipment on 138th Street goes online in the next several weeks, residents should notice exactly what they had hoped for – nothing. “Like a lot of the other things we do to boost reliability, customers are just not going to notice,” said Delmarva’s Jim Smith. “And the SVC project is a little out of the ordinary from a regular reliability upgrade.” The installation of the SVC, meaning Static Var Compensator, will simply help keep things running as normal. In the electricity business, people typically take good service for granted, and only notice when something isn’t right. “I always say that customer satisfaction means that when people flip the light switch, the lights come on,” Smith said. For the past year, DP&L has been working to upgrade its substation on 138th Street. The project is now physically complete and undergoing baseline testing, with the expectation that it will be fully operation by the end of the year, Smith said. The purpose of the SVC is to even out the resort’s voltage issues. Since there are no major lines over the Chesapeake Bay or coming up south, from Virginia, all of Ocean City’s power is piped down from the north, through Delaware. The farther one goes down the transmission, the more amplified any hiccups in voltage become, an issue which is made worse by the highly seasonal power demand of the area being served. “We’ve seen dips in voltage that cause concern,” Smith said. “The flip side of that is that we have built up a fairly robust system to serve that demand, so in the winter months we sometimes get the opposite effect and have spikes.” To help fight these fluctuations, the SVC serves as a giant booster pump, stabilizing the current. For the most part, residential customers will see no effect, other than the general benefit of less wear and tear on the system and, hopefully, fewer and shorter outages. “That’s something the average customer wouldn’t think about, unless they saw a dimming lights issue,” Smith said. “There are commercial customers who have seen issues on a very hot day during the summer or a very cold day during the winter.” When the project first came to the city for approval, the major concern was the deteriorating appearance of the existing substation. DP&L has subsequently built a wall, based on the architecture of nearby homes, all the way around the property to make it blend in with the neighborhood. Landscaping on the property is complete with an irrigation system to make sure the plants stay around. Even if the substation now looks better, many local residents voiced concerns See DP&L on Page 18A

DP&L expects EMF, noise test levels to be within int’l guidelines that noise and the suspicion of electromagnetic (EMF) radiation coming from the facility would drive down their quality of life and property values. Throughout several city hearings, the difficult-to-quantify effects of EMF disturbance on one’s health became a topic of lengthy discussion. Concern over the phenomenon – in which electronic fields from devices interfere with the electrical activity of the human body, is itself somewhat a symptom of the digital. Concerns over EMF radiation from the station itself were said by DP&L experts to be unfounded, given that microwave ovens and cell phones, for instance, emit a much stronger EMF signal than the entire substation is expected to. Nevertheless, DP&L will be required to take baseline noise and EMF level readings within 60 days of the substation becoming operational, and will send out new readings to the city and area residents every six months. “We get questions about the issue occasionally,” Smith said. “Typically, as we stated in the hearing, the equipment we have is well within the accepted national and international standards on EMF levels, so it’s really not been an issue.” Continued from Page 16A

PHOTO COURTESY TOWN OF OCEAN CITY

Ocean City’s retiring construction manager, Bill Bratten, is pictured with his family as he is presented with a key to the city by Mayor Rick Meehan at a recent meeting of the Mayor and City Council.

Bratten retires after working with city since 1984 (Nov. 8, 2013) Bill Bratten has retired after nearly 30 years with the Town of Ocean City. Bratten, who joined the town in February 1984, has spent his career working in the Department of Public Works. While Bratten’s formal responsibilities included supervising over 30 employees, he also managed the fleet and

construction divisions of public works. Before becoming the construction manager for public works, Bratten was a crew leader, equipment operator and a storm drain foreman. “I never expected my career would take the path that it has over the last 30 years,” said Bratten. “I want to thank the Mayor and Council for tak-

ing the time to recognize me and thank my colleagues for working with me over the past three decades.” Bratten is also retired from the U.S. Army, where he served from 1968 until 1970. His plans after retirement include traveling with his wife and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

rienced mechanical problems with the drawbridge during peak seasonal traffic. The daily traffic during this past summer was 49,575 vehicles. The daily traffic during the 2030 summer is estimated to be 61,900. Although Gulyas, who represents Ocean city, is pressing for something to be done about the aging bridge, the Ocean City Council has a different priority. In a June 18 letter to the county commissioners, Mayor Rick Meehan wrote of the council’s desire to “highlight a concern of Ocean City relative to long range planning and the effects the replacement of the US 50 bridge will have on overall accessibility to Ocean City.� Replacement of that bridge “has the potential (and reality) of causing severe traffic congestion issues, for multiple summer seasons, for those who chose to visit Ocean City as their vacation destination.� Meehan wrote that it “is far more prudent� to complete the dualization of the entire Route 90 corridor, from Route 50 to Coastal Highway, before replacing the Route 50 bridge. State officials did not discuss Meehan’s letter during Tuesday’s meeting, but in a letter to him, Peters thanked him for his recommendation to begin the planning process to widen Route 90. That bridge, she said, is included in the SHA’s Highway Needs Inventory, “which is a non-fiscally constrained long-range plan. Inclusion in the HNI is a required step before any project planning study can begin. Your recommendation will be kept in mind when SHA works with the Department of Transportation to develop future editions of the Consolidated Transportation Plan.� Numerous other projects, including work on Route 113, Route 589, Route 50 and Coastal Highway, were discussed during the annual meeting. The continuing work to make Route 113 a four-lane divided highway includes upgrading the area from north of Public Landing Road to Massey Branch, a distance of 8.9 miles. The SHA is developing short-term needs for Route 589 from Route 50 to Route 113, a distance of 4.7 miles. This project would relieve traffic congestion and improve traffic safety. This year, the SHA has completed resurfacing Route 50 from Route 818, Berlin’s Main Street, to the Wicomico County line at a cost of $2.5 million. SHA also completed ADA improvements on Broad Street west of Henry’s Mill Drive to Route 818 in Berlin, at a cost of $446,000.

County OKs Board of Ed plan NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

(Nov. 8, 2013) Because the Board of Education is not asking for any new programs or funding, Tuesday’s presentation by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson to the Worcester County Commissioners was brief, lasting only a few minutes. The commissioners voted unanimously in favor of Wilson’s request. Although the fiscal year 2015 Capital Improvement Plan includes no planning or funding requests, it addresses future projects and reports the successful completion of the bidding phase of the Snow Hill High School renovation and addition project, the completion of the lighting replacement project at Snow Hill Middle School and the completion of 37 fiscal year 2014

security initiative projects at the 14 schools. The Snow Hill High School project is scheduled to begin in January 2014. The plan also says a complete renovation or replacement of Showell Elementary School is a priority. Commissioner Judy Boggs said she would like the school replaced with a new building. An architectural/engineering firm will be selected this month to execute a feasibility study, which is expected to be completed in April 2014. The county will consider moving fourthgraders back to Showell, Wilson said. For Stephen Decatur Middle School, the Board of Education would like an addition to eliminate nine portable classrooms and to accommodate additional students expected because of the anticipated future growth in the area.

Numerous projects discussed during annual meeting Tues. of $429,000 each. In Ocean City, the SHA is continuing to make ADA improvements on Coastal Highway. Plans also call for improvements at the intersection of Route 50 and Seahawk Continued from Page 20A

Road. On the westbound side of Route 50, a left turn, for drivers turning to go to the school or elsewhere in that direction, will be added. “We think it’ll make a bid difference, particularly during school hours,” SHA District Engineer Donnie Drewer said.

COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Tuesday, Nov. 5, meeting.

Proclamations

OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

The Worcester County Commissioners on Tuesday recognized the month of November as Native American Heritage Month. Attending the event were, from left, Chief Laughing Otter Hall of the Accohannock Tribe; Mary Hall, senior clan mother of the Accohannock Tribe; Beverly Littlehawk of the Cherokees, Clarence Lone Wolf Tyler, chairman of the Tribal Council of the Accohannock Tribe, Chief Michael Quiet Bear of the Assateague Tribe, Diane Singing Fire Wolf Woman Baldwin, senior clan mother of the People of Mother Earth, and John Looking Fox Baldwin, pipe carrier and council member of the People of Mother Earth and medicine man for the Accohannock Tribe.

The commissioners presented a proclamation recognizing the month of November as Native American Heritage Month because of contributions made by Native Americans who continue to make a positive impact throughout the community and nation. The Assateague Tribe, the Accohannock Tribe and People of Mother Earth-Wolf Clan are active in Worcester County. The commissioners also presented a proclamation recognizing November as National Adoption Month to honor the many fam-

ilies who have opened their hearts and homes to children of all ages through adoption.

Commendation The commissioners presented a commendation to Shari Parsons. She and her husband, Mark, are the 2013 Worcester County Adoptive Parents of the Year. They took Adyson into their home on Nov. 17, 2010, when she was just a baby. They adopted her on April 24, 2013. Mark and Shari Parsons partnered with the county Department of Social Services to provide a safe and loving home for Adyson, who had been in state custody. The Parsons have two sons, ages 17 and 13, and are caring for two babies in foster care.

Road inventory The commissioners deleted a portion of Showell School Road, approximately .66-mile in length, from the county inventory. It is the same section of road that was declared an approved private road on Sept. 18, 2012. The road will provide access to a residential development.

Housing rehab The commissioners awarded the rehabilitation work on a house in the Berlin area to Global Home Improvements for their bid of $23,900. The award had been delayed until the specific flooring materials could be clarified.

Haz mat grant The commissioners approved a memorandum of understanding between the Maryland Emergency Management Agency and the county regarding a grant. The county Department of Emergency Services will use the $1,835.06 grant to develop and two-day exercise to increase local effectiveness in safely and efficiently handing hazardous materials events in the county. Targeted attendees will be members of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Special Hazards Team plus other interested members of the county fire and EMS departments. Salaries of the members of the Department of Emergency Services, who will plan and prepare the exercise, will cover the match for the grant.

Bids At the request of Public Works Director John Tustin, the commissioners accepted the low bid of $16,790 submitted by Selbyville Tractor and Equipment for two offset hydraulic rotary cutters for the Roads Division. The commissioners also approved bids for new 2014 vehicles, three full-size SUVs at a cost of $30,710 each for two of them and $31,493 for the third, a 3/4-ton pickup for $24,293, and a utility body truck for $46,394, from Hertrich Fleet Services. The Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office and the Roads Division will use the new vehicles. They also accepted the low bid of $225,148 from Barr International for two dump trucks to be used by the Roads Division.

OBITUARIES president of her senior class, and attended the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. Referred to in her IND yearbook as â&#x20AC;&#x153;winsome, witty Winnie,â&#x20AC;? Coughlin had a lifelong love of learning. Honored to have received a partial scholarship from the College, she was crushed to learn that her family could not afford the remaining tuition. When a colleague of her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid the remaining part of the tuition, this gave Coughlin a lesson she never forgot. When she later returned to the donor with an offer to repay him, he asked instead that she pay it forward to help others. In subsequent years, Winnie and her husband established several scholarships to do just that. She was thrilled over the years to receive letters from students who were the recipients of these scholarships. Coughlin interrupted her college education when she married Patrick J. Coughlin Jr. in October 1944. The couple immediately left Baltimore for California so Mr. Coughlin could serve in the Navy in the Pacific during World War II. With her husband still deployed, Coughlin returned to Baltimore in 1945 to have the first of her six children. She was proud to boast that she could claim the distinction of being both among the youngest and oldest mothers, as she had six children over a 20-year period. Coughlin retained deep ties to the College of Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she returned for classes after a 40-year hiatus rearing her children and she served as a Trustee Associate. On the occasion of her 85th birthday, Coughlin was awarded The Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medal in recognition to her lifetime of service and commitment to the mission of College of Notre Dame. At the time, Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s President, Mary Pat Seurkamp, described Winnie as representing â&#x20AC;&#x153;the very best of what a Notre Dame education providesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;learning, leadership and service to others.â&#x20AC;? Coughlin enjoyed the travel she and her husband undertook over the years. She truly loved spending many summers at her home in Ocean City and in later years enjoying beach vacations with her children and grandchildren. To her, the beach embodied beauty and a great peacefulness. She was a former member of the Baltimore Country Club and Country Club of Maryland. She is survived by three children Sean Coughlin, of Berlin, Eileen Bress of New Bern, N.C. and Meaghan Williams of San Antonio, Tex. and six grandchildrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Colleen Herron of Chicago, Brendan Herron of San Francisco, Caitlin Herron of New York, N.Y., Katie Thompson of Chapel Hill, N.C., Ryan and Claire Williams of San Antonio, Tex. She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Patrick J. Coughlin Jr. and by three children, Patrick J. Coughlin III, Barbara C. Herron and Colleen Coughlin. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to either the Colleen Marie Coughlin Scholarship at the Notre Dame of Maryland University or to the Winifred and Patrick Coughlin Scholarship at Loyola University in Maryland.

Seahawks lose 2-0 in 3A South Region Section I final round LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor

Seven Stephen Decatur cross country runners will compete in Saturday’s 3A state championship at McDaniel College. Pictured, from left, are Chloe FauntLeRoy, Katie Collins, Meya Chilengi, Alison Alvarado, Katie Hofman and Alex McKahan. Missing from photo is Alex Tushup.

SD runners headed to state XC meet Seven Lady Seahawks will compete Saturday in Md. championship race LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Nov. 8, 2013) The Stephen Decatur girls’ cross country team finished fifth overall out of nine schools participating in the 3A South Regional championship, Oct. 31, at Oak Ridge Park in Hughesville and have advanced to the state championships. “I expected the girls to do well. I knew we has a good chance to qualify as a team,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. “I would have been disappointed if we didn’t qualify anyone.” The top 15 individual finishers in the boys’ and girls’ regional races automatically qualified for states. Sophomore Alison Alvarado

crossed the finish line ninth overall (22:17.91). “I thought I did pretty well, considering that at the last 800 meters I took a nasty fall, but all of it at the end paid off and I have never been happier of myself or of my team,” Alvarado said. Senior Katie Collins completed the race in 22:53.06, good for 13th place. “I was surprised with how well I did individually as well as how our team performed as a whole,” Collins said. Alvarado and Collins both advanced to the state championships for placing 15th or better. After the race, Stigler said the Seahawks had to wait to see if the entire team would qualify, which it did. The top five finishers from each school scored points for their respective squads. Contributing to Decatur’s fifth-place finish was Alvarado, Collins, seniors Chloe FauntLeRoy (24:10.19, 24th) and Alex Tushup (24:21.18, 26th) and junior Meya

Chilengi (24:34.95, 30th). “I feel as though we performed at our best,” FauntLeRoy said. “I tried very hard and it was definitely a team effort making it to states.” Added Chilengi, “Considering the rocky and hilly terrain, I did really well. The course looked very intimidating and I’m proud of my effort as well as the team’s.” Sophomore Katie Hofman (25:23.28, 38th) and senior Alex McKahan (25:41.31, 42nd) round out the Decatur squad headed to the state meet. “We did great. The course was really hard, but we did it,” Hofman said. “We went in with a positive attitude and intentions of doing our best. I was excited how well the team did,” McKahan said. This is the first time since 2006 an entire Decatur cross country team has qualified for the 3A state meet, Stigler See LADY on Page 31A

(Nov. 8, 2013) The second-seeded Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team struggled to capitalize on its scoring opportunities during last Friday’s 3A South Regional tournament Section I finals against the No. 1 Northern Patriots of Calvert County in Owings, Md. Northern scored twice in the second half to win, 2-0. “We started off slow. We didn’t come out and press right away like we talked about,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “They had numerous chances to score in the first half and I think we had one shot on goal.” Greenwood told his players during the halftime break, with the score tied 0-0, that if they wanted to move on in the regional tournament, they needed to step up. “We controlled the game in the second half,” Greenwood said. “If we’d just been able to put one away, that would have changed the whole dynamic.” Northern scored with about nine minutes left in the game. The Patriots netted their second goal with three minutes remaining. “We had some good opportunities, we just couldn’t find the back of the net,” Greenwood said. “Their keeper made some decent saves that kept them in the game.” Decatur senior goalie Logan Thumma stopped 10 shots in the first half and six in the second. Senior Tyler Angelo played in goal the final six minutes of the competition and made two saves. The Seahawks (11-4) finished as the top team in the Bayside South Conference. Greenwood said he was pleased with the season overall. “I’m happy with how the kids came out and performed and worked hard. They adapted to new positions and they gave everything they had,” Greenwood said. The team will lose nine seniors, each of whom started at one point this season, to graduation. “That’s going to be tough to replace, but the young guys are working hard and we’ve got about five kids who make up the core nucleus coming back,” Greenwood said. “The JV boys, there’s a lot of talent there too.” Greenwood said he is already looking forward to next season.

Lady Seahawks excited to compete in state cross country meet said. The Decatur boys’ team finished in seventh placed at regionals and failed to qualify for states. “I thought the boys had a chance. I would have liked to see a boy qualify,” Stigler said. “We didn’t come out fast. I don’t think they knew what to expect from the course.” Senior Kevin Herbert was the first Seahawk to cross the finish line. He place 20th overall (19:04.59) Also scoring points for Decatur was

The 2013 state competition will take place Saturday at McDaniel College in Westminster. All seven Lady Seahawks are excited and looking forward to competing. Alvarado said she and her team-

mates have worked extremely hard all season and it has paid off. “We would have never made it this far if it wasn’t for both of our coaches who have trained us for this competition,” she said. “I love my team and I’m glad we are doing this together.” Chilengi said it has been her goal all season to make it to states. “I always say to my teammates that ‘even if you don’t place/win, make sure you give every course your best effort,’” she said. “‘Don’t psych yourself out and make sure you leave each

meet with the satisfaction of knowing you gave it your absolute best.’” For four of the girls, this will be their final cross country race as Decatur athletes. “This is my fourth and last year of cross country and I couldn’t think of a better way of ending the season,” McKahan said. “I hope we all just try our hardest and be competitors. I hope to finish my last cross country race strong and I hope everyone runs confidently,” FauntLeRoy added.

Decatur golfers struggle on challenging course Seahawks not pleased with overall performance during state championship LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor

(Nov. 8, 2013) Five Stephen Decatur golfers competed in the 4A/3A state championship on the University of Maryland College Park course last week. The foursome of freshman Matt Kristick, senior captain Andrew Urban and juniors Danny Parker and Brooks Holloway represented Decatur as a team. Junior Delaney Iacona also participated in the match, but as an individual. It was the third time Urban and Iacona had advanced to the state tournament. Parker, Kristick and Holloway made their championship debuts. The 4A/3A semifinal round took place Oct. 28. With 148 golfers playing, Decatur Coach Jim Krall said it was the largest field of participants he could remember. With so many golfers, last Monday’s semifinals took six hours and 45 minutes to complete. Urban shot an 81, the lowest score among the Decatur Seahawks. “I definitely could have played better, but the conditions were very tough and posting a good round would have been very difficult with the slow play,” Urban said. “The lowest round was, 73, two over (par), which is one of the highest low rounds for Day 1 in a long time.” Kristick carded an 82. He was not pleased with his performance overall. “I felt that I could have played much better given the opportunity again. The competition was very high, but there was no reason why I couldn’t compete with them,” Kristick said. “The greens were rock hard and it was the slowest round of golf I have ever played.” Iacona tallied an 89. She said she didn’t play her best golf. “I felt really out of the ordinary. The girls were very good,” Iacona said. Holloway also said his performance wasn’t his best. He recorded a 90. “[It] is definitely one of the hardest

courses I have ever played on,” Holloway said. “The competition was different. It’s states, so everyone is there because they can play good golf.” Parker, who said it was hard to get a rhythm going when there was a wait on almost every tee box, shot a 92. “I didn’t perform to the best of my ability…If I had eliminated some of the bad scores then I might have been able to Coach Krall gain a little more confidence, which could’ve resulted in a lower (overall) score,” he said. The four boys, competing as a team, carded a 345. To advance to the final round on Oct. 30, the cutoff score was 334. The boys’ individual cutoff was 84, so Urban and Kristick qualified for Day 2 finals. The girls’ cutoff score was 87. Iacona came up two strokes short of advancing to the championship round. Kristick said he performed much better during Day 2 then he did in the semifinal round. He shot a 75. “I ended up having the third lowest score that day out of all the guys, which was a good way to end the year,” Kristick said. “In my season, I endured a lot of ups and downs. I got off to a good start, but midway through the season I hit a slump. I couldn’t do anything on the course. At the end of the regular season, I started to pick up my game and started to shoot some low scores.” Urban said he was disappointed with his Day 2 performance and that there was something wrong he couldn’t put his finger on. He scored an 89. “It was just an extremely bad day and that’s what makes golf such an emotionally exhausting sport,” he said. “I had much higher goals for myself in the season and I know I didn’t play to my potential, but I have another four years of college golf to make up for it. As a team, I thought we played as a solid five-man team that could beat any team if we played our best. We exceeded expectations and that couldn’t make me any happier.”

Decatur won nine of the 10 regularseason matches and finished second in one. The Seahawks captured the Bayside Conference and District VIII championship trophies for the second consecutive year. “We had a sensational season and we will have banners in the gym to show our accomplishments,” Krall said. Urban, Kristick and Parker earned First Team All-Conference honors. Iacona and Holloway received Second Team accolades. Krall will have nearly all of the golfers who competed this season back in 2014, except for Urban and Chase Eslin, who will graduate. Urban, a member of the team for four years, finished as the top golfer in the conference with a 38.58 average. “My last year was so much fun and I’m going to miss it a lot. I was surrounded by great people day in and day out and there isn’t anybody else I can think of that I’d rather spend my time on the golf course with,” Urban said. “Playing golf for Decatur was an experience that I’ll never forget and it’s going to be tough to graduate from a program that’s been so great.” Krall said next year’s team should be led by Parker, Iacona, Holloway and Kristick, who tied for 14th place overall in the state. “Matt really peaked in the post-season and made a name for himself in the conference,” Krall said. Added Kristick,” This first year on the golf team was a fantastic experience. I had a lot of fun playing and helping the team out. I’ve never been able to be part of a team in golf until this year. I really look forward to playing for Decatur the next three years.”

Decatur rallies for come-from-behind victory ‘We clawed and scratched and never gave up,’ Coach Knox says of his Seahawks

Contributing to Worcester’s conference victory was senior captain Billy Brittingham, who carded a 39, the lowest score of day. He earned medalist honors. Sophomores Jason Cook and John Meakin tallied 45 and 47, respectively, and junior Rylie Doyle carded a 47. The eight players with the lowest scores during the competition received All-Tournament accolades. Five of the eight spots went to Worcester players. Brittingham, Cook, Meakin, Doyle and freshman Jon Ruddo, who shot a 51, were named to the All-Tournament team. Those players also received All-Conference honors. Brittingham was named ESIAC Player of the Year. During matches against the public schools in the Bayside Conference, where Worcester faces its stiffest competition, the Prep team finished in third place behind Decatur and Washington. “Losing five seniors [to graduation last year], I knew it would be a pretty big challenge with those holes to fill, but I thought the kids did great,” Gates said. Gates will lose only one player from the 2013 squad to graduation, Brittingham, who has been a member of the team for four years. When asked if he will be missed, Gates said, “that’s an understatement.” “I’ve had the privilege of coaching some great kids…but there’s no one better,” he said. “He was a great leader this year. He was like an assistant coach out there. He said ‘the season couldn’t have ended better than it did’ so I was happy for him.” With seven varsity golfers expected to return in 2014, Gates said he is excited about next season with the talent coming back. “The future is bright,” he said.

(Nov. 8, 2013) Exciting and exhilarating. That’s how Stephen Decatur football Coach Bob Knox described last Friday’s game in Berlin. The Seahawks came from behind to win 25-24 over the Parkside Rams. “We clawed and scratched and never gave up,” Knox said. Parkside scored about a minute and a half into the game. Decatur quarterback Justin Meekins answered just over a minute later, carrying the ball 62 yards for a touchdown. Junior Austin Dundore’s extra-point kick was good. With 1:36 remaining in the first quarter, Decatur suffered a big loss. Senior P.J. Copes dislocated his left shoulder, which had previously been injured, while making a tackle. He was sidelined the rest of the game. Parkside scored in the second quarter to lead 14-7 at halftime. The visiting Rams pulled ahead 21-7 at the 9:55 mark in the third quarter. Shortly after, Decatur suffered another loss, when junior Jeremiah Purnell was injured. A few minutes later, he was carted away in an ambulance. Purnell suffered a concussion. Parkside tacked on three additional points with a 27-yard field goal with 3:50 left in the third quarter to increase its advantage 24-7. As the Seahawks gathered in a huddle on the sideline one of the players yelled, “Make a statement. Don’t bow down to them.” With 47 seconds to play in the third quarter, Meekins sprinted toward the end zone and flipped over a Parkside player to get across the line. While in midair, Meekins was hit and Decatur’s athletic trainer came out to tend to him. With the wind knocked out of him and in a bit of pain, Meekins was able to walk off the field on his own. Parkside blocked Dundore’s extrapoint attempt to hold a 24-13 lead at the end of the quarter. Two and a half minutes into the fourth quarter, Meekins threw a 16-yard pass to senior Demond Henry, who was wide open in the end zone. Decatur was unsuccessful on the two-point conversion. After turnovers by both teams, the Decatur defense stopped Parkside to take over with 3:15 on the clock. Meekins found junior Tyrie Adams for the touchdown and Decatur pulled ahead 25-24 with 3:03 left in the game. The two-point conversion attempt failed. As the Decatur defensive players stepped onto the field, the crowd chanted “defense” to encourage and cheer on the Seahawks, who managed to hold off

Stephen Decatur junior quarterback Justin Meekins prepares to throw the ball during last Friday’s game against Parkside in Berlin. Decatur came from behind to win 25-24.

Parkside to secure the one-point victory. “A lot of teams would have quit down 24-7. I’m proud that we didn’t quit,” Knox said. “They’re not the best football players, but they make up for it with heart and effort. They scratch, they claw and they fight.” Senior Andrew Borradaile rushed 14 times for 61 yards. Meekins ran the ball six times, racking up 90 yards. He was 12-for-23 passing for 202 yards. “[Meekins] took it on his shoulders. He was the one that made the plays that had to be made at the times they needed to be made,” Knox said. “When we were down 24-7, he said, ‘We’re not going to lose this game.’” Henry had three receptions for 65 yards. Adams caught one pass for 49 yards. Senior Chase Sams led the Decatur

defense with 15 tackles. Borradaile chipped in with 11 and sophomore Dryden Brous made 10 tackles. Junior Sam Coates contributed with seven tackles, a quarterback sack and a fumble recovery. Decatur will battle its Worcester County rival, the Snow Hill Eagles, tonight, Nov. 8, in the final game of the regular season. To be successful, Knox said the Seahawks must be disciplined, not turn the ball over, play every play like its their last and be physical. Game time is 6 p.m. If the Seahawks (6-3) win the competition in Snow Hill, they will advance to the 3A South Regional tournament. In all other high school sports, teams automatically qualify to compete in the playoffs, but in football, squads must perform well enough during the regular season in order to advance.

Seahawks fall in reg. first round LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor

(Nov. 8, 2013) The Stephen Decatur volleyball teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season came to an end last Friday at the hands of the Northeast Eagles of Anne Arundel County. The fifth-seeded Eagles traveled to Berlin on Nov. 1 to battle the No. 4 Seahawks in first-round action of Section I of the 3A South Regional tournament. Northeast took the first game, 25-14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first game I Coach Zimmer think we were making silly mistakes [and] we made it a little too easy for the other team,â&#x20AC;? said Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The second game I thought we played smarter and we made some great plays.â&#x20AC;? Points were traded in the second game. Tied 12-12, Decatur went on a 6-1 run to pull ahead 18-13. Northeast evened the score at 22-22, but a service error and hit out of bounds by the Eagles put the Seahawks one point away from winning the second game. Senior captain Taylor Black secured the 25-22 victory for the home team with a kill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the first and the second game were very similar. They seemed really excited, really pumped up,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were talking, they were moving [and] passing was on. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a lot with passing, so that was great to see that it was actually working. Again, communication was great and the energy was there so we were able to edge them out.â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said the Seahawks had momentum going into the third game, but once her players began making errors â&#x20AC;&#x153;we kind of started to get a little defeated

and then we just lost the things we had in the first two games.â&#x20AC;? Decatur lost the third game, 25-18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our communication broke down and our passing wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite there,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. After the third game, Zimmer tried to motivate the Seahawks and told them that Northeast was beatable and the Eagles were not a better team. She said they needed to play smart and get their passes on point. Trailing 14-8 in the fourth game, Decatur fought back to within one point (14-13), but the Berlin squad was unable to pull ahead. Northeast won the game, 25-17 to take the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the match I told them to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keep their heads up, there was nothing to be ashamed of, they played hard,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bittersweet especially for the seniors,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. Black led the Decatur offense with five kills and two blocks. Junior Hannah Adkins had four kills and two blocks. On defense, senior Sammi Quilter dug 13 Northeast hits. Decatur finished the season 8-8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought [the season] was kind of like a roller coaster. Once we kind of got going in the season we were able to work on the weak areas,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some games they came out and they were on and then other games they just seemed a little bit off. By the end, I thought they picked it up and the last couple of games were really great so that was good to watch.â&#x20AC;? Six seniors, five of whom started, will graduate in May. Zimmer will lose experienced players, but there are several veterans who are slated to return next year. Zimmer said some players who competed at the junior varsity level will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;beneficialâ&#x20AC;? on the variety squad in 2014.

Fighting over ad money not doing any good It’s often been noted in newspaper circles that the greatest human need is neither love nor hate, but the desire of one person to change the writing of another. Although that might be an accepted truth in this business, it is not true anywhere else, especially in government, where the overriding desire of officials, outside of being reelected or reappointed, is to control the money. Hence, the long-running financial feud between Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan and others and the Worcester County Commissioners. Although the absence of a county tax differential for Ocean City property owners is the central issue, the latest grumble involves only a couple of hundred thousand dollars that is earmarked for the resort advertising, but only if it also recognizes the county’s tourism Web site. Generally speaking, the easiest way to do this would be in print advertising, which the city eschews these days in favor of television and other media. Even so, the city doesn’t really want to work with the county on much of anything, resulting in a great deal of griping whenever this advertising money is used. It is difficult to see how this tussle is helping anyone or how giving county tourism equal billing on roughly just under 5.5 percent of the resort’s total advertising package is going to siphon off visitors to the beach. A safe bet would be that anyone vacationing in northern Worcester County is going to come to the beach at least one time, and probably more. Also, considering that most of the lodging industry is in this end of the county is located in Ocean City, a vacationer who plans to spend all his or her daylight hours elsewhere, will more than likely sleep here. Accepting that the county and Ocean City just don’t get along, this comparatively small amount of advertising money is not worth fighting over, especially at a time when businesses will be happy to take everything they can get.

EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

Nov. 14 meeting to clear up Obamacare confusion AARP’s Norris wants to provide answers concerning ACA PHIL JACOBS ■ Editor Chris Norris is on a mission. One can feel it in his strong handshake and his confident, positive tone of voice. President of AARP Chapter 1917, he is using that posture to give members and the general Phil Jacobs public an opportunity to understand beyond any doubt the complexities of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). That is why from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, at the Knights of Columbus, 9901 Coastal Highway in Ocean City, topics will be addressed, questions will be answered and hopefully the many nuances of ACA will be approached and discussed. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. After Chris gets the meeting started, key speakers will take to

the podium and help all of us understand. Chris has made it clear that this is not the place to come in with a political agenda, pro or con. It is a place of learning. He is putting urgency in this so that no one leaves with any doubts or questions. Joanne Grossi, Regional Director, Region III, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will go over the changes due to health reform. She will offer a high-level view of the ACA and talk deeply about common misconceptions. Carolyn Quattrocki, from the Governor’s Office on Health Reform, will give a picture of how this health reform measure will roll out in Maryland. She will explain who and where one must go to to enroll. Importantly, she’ll describe the Maryland Health Connection, what the website looks like, how to enroll, who qualifies and even what information one must have to enroll. Carol Humphrey, Maryland Senior Health Insurance Program Counselor, MAC, Inc., will talk about what changes will impact Medicare and what changes will not have any effect. She will answer general Medicare questions.

After that, Chris will facilitate a question and answer session. The ACA seemingly is on the minds of many these days. “We want to explain the ABCs of it,” Chris said. “Our members really have questions that they aren’t necessarily getting answered when they watch reports on TV. We want people to be able to come away from this meeting with information they can take back to their families.” Part of the urgency Chris carries with him on this issue of ACA is that, he tells us, he’s pretty much heard it all, whether the information is accurate or inaccurate. “Our members and others want to hear for themselves,” he said. “I decided to do this because I felt our membership would benefit from what is going on out there.” Chris is hoping to see members from Ocean City, Berlin, Ocean Pines, Selbyville and anyone else needing answers to their questions. An article in the April/May 2013 AARP Magazine addresses issues concerning area seniors. “The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is already making it easier for people to get, keep and af-

tomed to doing 40 (or 45) back and forth to work, falling all the way back to 35 is like missing the last step on the staircase. The drop isn’t big, but it sure feels like it. Although the people who make the rules have said the reason for the speed limit switch is to give people time to get used to driving a little more slowly, I’m wondering if who they’re talking about are me and the other two people on the road in the morning. If so, I am relatively certain that the three of us will have this new speed limit well under control by next Memorial Day. I can’t speak for the people in the seven other cars I see on my way home each evening. This, of course, would not count the police cars on the side of the road monitoring our daily (or nightly) progress. Luckily, they remain on the side of the road because if all 14 of us

EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

Obamacare nuances topic of upcoming AARP get-together ford health care benefits. It helps protect consumers from discriminatory insurance practices, and it strengthens coverage for people who are on Medicare.” The article went on to cover many important points. It showed how insurance plans and Medicare are covering more preventive services. It explained how the law has been closing the infamous “doughnut hole,” or the Medicare Part D gap. Insurers cannot drop your coverage if you become sick or disabled. Parents can keep adult children on their health insurance until age 26. Plans cannot limit how much you pay for your lifetime medical costs, and plans can’t deny coverage for children under age 19 who have pre-existing conditions. Continued from Page 36A

Speaking for Chris, because he’d never say this: Chris has gone out of his way to put this impressive meeting together. I can underscore the urgency of the information that is available. The ACA for many has been a breath of fresh air. For others, though, the ACA has been daunting. Picking up the urgency of Chris Norris, let’s go into Thursday’s meetings with open minds. Bring note-taking materials and most importantly bring your questions, no matter how personal they might be to your situation. I can guarantee you, there are others who have similar issues. Expect to see you there.

were to crowd Coastal Highway at the same time, there could be problems. Just kidding. No really. I like seeing police cars in the parking lots and side streets as make my way north and south, because it assures me that if any traffic did suddenly materialize, they would be there to control it. According to one report I heard, a police traffic survey this summer found that the average vehicular speed on Coastal Highway is 37 mph. So, now we’re being forced to drive 35, which makes us below average. I will admit that I am a little resentful that my idea of pedestrian safety was rejected: install those invisible dog fences on the sidewalks and issue electric collars. Sure, that’s outlandish, but that 35 mph also feels kind of funny. Especially when you’re the only one out there.

Was Common Core a state-led effort?

Editor, Proponents of Common Core claim that the standards are a state-led, voluntary effort and not a national standard endorsed by the federal government. However, while these standards may have started out as a state-led effort between the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), the federal government poured significant funds into a quick establishment of the Common Core. The Race to the Top funds ($4.35 billion) and the No Child Left Behind waivers were contingent on a state’s adoption of Common Core, making a strong argument that states adopted the standards not because of the standards’ academic quality but because of the incentive of millions of dollars. The U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) awarded an additional $350 million to two private organizations to develop national tests that are aligned with Common Core. In the spring of 2013 the USDOE established a technical review panel whose sole purpose is to evaluate the aligned tests. With billions of federal dollars poured into their adoption, the national tests and their review, Common Core can no longer be called a “voluntary, state-led” effort. Rather, they are a national standard with strong financial ties to the federal govern-

ment, driving accountability to the federal level and decreasing local control. F. Gebhart Berlin

Some valid points made

Editors, Regarding the ads by Tony Christ and the organization of the Citizens for Ocean City in the Nov. 1 issue of the Ocean City Today newspaper, I would like to respectfully respond to the newspaper, Mr. Christ and the Citizens for Ocean City. I believe Mr. Christ has made some valid statements regarding the actions taken by the Council and Mayor in committing the people’s money on projects without presenting them to the registered voting citizens of the city to determine whether or not they’ll accept and approve the expenditures. As Mr. Christ pointed out, we the people have a right, through referendum, to express our approval or disapproval of all large expenditures. To go against this right goes against the very basic core of our democracy. Although it would be right to allow the proper sequence of authorization to take place, the sad truth is, based on the last election, very few of the registered voters will actually vote. And those that do vote many times vote based on party affiliation or friendship and closeness to certain individuals without regard to their personal or stated positions on certain

matters pertaining to taxes or spending. During the last election we lost two council people who had the courage and principles to try to reduce the cost to the tax payers by having one of the main proponents of taxing and spending removed from office. Since that time the mayor and council have authorized the spending of our money without taxpayer authorization on a number of projects. The first major project before the election, but not authorized by the citizens vote, was the new library. Then came the Arts Center on 94th Street —a completely new building with no financial expected return. Then there was the fishing pier, a privately owned enterprise damaged by a storm. The mayor had the audacity to claim, because it was a tourist attraction, we the people should rebuild the pier. More recently we had the purchase and placement of parking meters throughout the area. And now we have the demolition of what appeared to be a perfectly sound fire house building with a design of a new one to be built in the same location. Finally, we now have the convention center. At what point will the voting public finally become aware of these expenditures done without their approval and start to demand their right to have voice in these matters? Now, of course, we have the organization of the Citizens for Ocean City (whoever they are) trying, through lies and

distortion, to scare the voting public (who are mostly on their side to begin with) into not signing the petition claiming it will cost taxpayers millions. The total result of all this shows how little regard our local government has for the debt our nation is facing at the present time. This is not a time for small cities, which have an enormous amount of tax funds, that are unrepresented due to the fact that many of the homes in the city are second homes that have no voice in how the city spends their money. Over the years concerned citizens have tried twice to have their taxation without representation corrected through referendums. And twice the city controllers and lawyers have found ways of not allowing these owners the right to vote on local spending issues. The reason for stopping their referendums should be obvious to the voting public. So, Mr. Christ, although you’re right in your effort to require a vote on these expenditures, the net result of would be, as it was with the recent election, a vote of agreement by the friends of the present controllers in our local government. This is how it will remain until the voting public finally wakes up to this misrepresentation. We can only hope that they will wake up before all the money is spent and we have nothing to fall back on through the difficult times that lie ahead. Paul St. Andre Ocean City

A bridge too far

For many people, attempting to drive over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is out of the question, so they pay drivers to do it for them

driving over a bridge. Yes, there is a term for such a condition called gephyrophobia. Bob and Debi can tell you all about what gephyrophobia does to their clients who pay between $25 and $30 for peace of mind. First, the bay bridge was listed as the 9th scariest in the world by Travel & Leisure.com. The State of Maryland Transportation Department at one time provided the ride over for free. But it became time consuming and too expensive for the state to absorb. That’s where Bob and Debi, who are See FOR on Page 3B

By Phil Jacobs Editor r. Beatrix In Der Wiesche, a veterinarian from Milton, Del., loves to visit friends on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Up until she turned 50, it was typically no big deal to drive the 4.3 miles west bound and then turn around and come home. Then, she had what Oprah would call an “ah hah” moment. Or in the doctor’s case, a frightful one at the very least. She was on the bay bridge and feeling the onrush of an anxiety attack. “I am 50, so I don’t know if it had

something to do with hormonal changes,” she said. “Truth is, I never liked driving over the bridge, and my anxieties have escalated.” Her greatest fear is that she will black out at any moment, any time. On a subsequent trip, she called a service that had been recommended, but when the driver failed to show, she drove first to a bay bridge toll booth. The operator hailed a police officer, and that officer referred her to the Kent Island Shuttle Service & Bay Bridge Drive-Overs Company, co-owned by Bob Spindler and Debi Mathews. Dr. In Der Wiesche is hardly alone in her fear of being behind the wheel while

By Clara Vaughn Staff Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) The 1971 T.C. Williams High School football team, made famous by Disney’s “Remember the Titans,” held its first reunion since the release of the 2000 film last weekend, kicking events off at Seacrets on Friday night. Hugs and warm welcomes were in order at the gathering, where old friends met, players honored their coaches and the public had a chance to meet the team. “It’s just about getting together and telling stories and remembering the good times,” said former offensive lineman Bob Luckett, who organized the reunion. Luckett lives in the area and got the idea to hold an Ocean City reunion last spring from his former coach, Bill Yoast, who lives in Bethany Beach. “Coach Yoast and I were driving home in April from a fundraising event. He said, ‘You know, I’m getting ready to turn 89 in the month of November, and I just don’t know how many more of these I’ll be able to do,’” Luckett said. On Saturday, the team celebrated Yoast’s birthday with a pig roast at Swann Keys with about 90 in attendance. The

For thousands of people, driving over bay bridge isn’t an option also significant others, came in to help people with this ride over the bridge. They have seen practically everything. Bob has driven his white vehicle onto the bridge and gotten close enough so that Debi could get into the stopped car of a person who was frozen with panic. There are clients who keep their eyes closed the entire trip. There are a small number of others who just want to curl up in a fetal position on the back seat. But most of the clients, the couple says, sit with their eyes open and just have a pleasant conversation. Talk to their customers, and they talk about the couple in terms of “life savers” and the “cure” for their anxiety. Some customers told Ocean City Today that they start worrying about getting over the bridge hours before they make the call. The couple has taken some 4,000 trips over the bay bridge in one direction or the other each year for three years. “We have taken people, and we’ve heard their stories,” said Bob. “There’s no rhyme nor reason. We’ve had macho men, young and old, male and female. Everybody has something in their lives. This is what these people have.” Bob added that there’s no shame here, and that he and Debi know they are helping people take the anxiety out of a trip. Debi talks about driving pick-up trucks with a camper and boat in tow. He said that the typical story goes something like “I’ve driven over this bridge for 20 years, and all of the sudden boom. My palms start sweat, I’m afraid I’m going to have a heart attack.” Bob continued, “Hey, don’t have a heart attack. We’ll get you across it.” Linda Rowe, a customer, is pragmatic about her fear. It all started for her after the terrorist bombings of Sept. 11, 2001. “Don’t ask me why; it just scares me. “I don’t like the height,” she added. “I’d rather pay them to drive me over than risk vertigo. The best part is the conversations I have with Debi. She is a very calming person.” Rowe travels from her home in Hunt Valley in Baltimore County because she owns property in Ocean Pines. So she needs to travel over the bridge quite a bit. Another customer, a nurse who lives on the Eastern Shore, but works at a hospital on the other side, calls the ride over

the bridge “a long five minutes.” “There’s many people who are afraid of it,” the RN, who asked to be nameless, said. There are times she said, especially at night when she does drive over the bridge. But often she’ll have Debi on the phone calming her fears and getting her over. “They are totally professional,” she said. “They are there when they say they are going to be there. I’d recommend them a thousand times over.” It’s not difficult to find Internet chat from people about their trips over the bay bridge. One person wrote: “I’m glad I’m not alone. The Xanax does not help me. I get light headed, sweaty palms and feel my heart racing. The worst part, there’s no place for an

emergency pull off. You can see right through the side retaining railing. It gives me the sense of climbing a roller coaster for three miles.” Bob said with a laugh that this was supposed to be a “retirement job.” But the couple is on call almost always, bringing in friends to work as backup. He had his transportation business mainly to drive people to and from the airport or to pick up wedding parties. “There are days when you have no time to yourself, because this is 24/7. The couple lives just five miles from the bridge in Grasonville. Debi is used to driving. She has had a commercial driver’s license for more than 30 years and drives a school bus. She is also the former owner of Scarborough Fair, a furniture store in Mardela Springs. She sold the store in 2006.

That’s when she started driving the school bus. Debi has a calm, “everything is going to be all right,” voice. “I think many of our clients have a panic disorder,” she said. “I’m familiar with panic disorder, I can sympathize. But I think for our customers who are like friends and family to us, not worrying about driving the bridge is the one gift they give themselves. “Bob and I feel really good about what we do, because we’re helping people,” she said. “Freedom for some drivers comes with restrictions. “And we understand that.” *** Kent Island Shuttle Service & Bay Bridge Drive-Overs can be reached at 410-726-3990 or by emailing kentislandshuttle@gmail.com

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although your energy level is high, be careful not to commit to too many projects at this time. You’ll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. I’m cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your “serious” Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. It’s time now to let that “wilder” half take you out for some good times — perhaps with someone very special. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Children who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the Lion’s immediate financial future. But be careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck something away to help you through another tight period. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, you’ll get through it all soon enough. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about joining a colleague’s plan to solve a workplace problem. Investigate it thoroughly. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a predicament with other associates. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that high-paced whirl you’ve been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. You’ll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; otherwise, you could be misled. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pisceans who know how to make them work to their advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of being both daring and cautious, traits that could make you a research scientist or maybe even a rocket-ship designer.

Titans do some remembering themselves Members of historic team say it was more about school loyalties than race celebration continued Sunday at JC’s Northside Pub before the teammates headed home. Part of the Titans’ meet-and-greet on Friday was to raise money for the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria. For $25, visitors could meet the team, take photos and get autographs. “Because of the movie, we’ve been able to give back a bit,” Luckett said. So far, the team has helped 11 T.C. Williams High School graduates pay for college, he said. The team’s story dates back to 1971, when three Alexandria, Va., high schools merged into one and rivals from George Washington, Hammond and T. C. Williams high schools found themselves playing for the same team. In addition, Boone, an assistant coach of the former black T.C. Williams High School, was named head coach of the Titans, passing over Yoast, the head coach of the former white Hammond High. The racial tensions depicted in the movie, however, were exaggerated, with the real difficulty relating more to school ties. “We all had loyalties to different

Teammates and coaches, family and friends gather at the reunion of the 1971 T.C. Williams Titans football team at Seacrets on 49th Street last Friday. The 1971 team, immortalized in Disney’s movie Remember the Titans, spent three days together last weekend.

schools,” Coach Glenn Furman said. The movie highlights the struggles the team faced bringing rival players together and merging black and white students into one team. They became a “unifying force of the city,” Furman said. The Titans went on to become state champions that year, and played what Irie Radio’s Bill Bruce, who attended the reunion, called an “electric game.”

“It was such an incredible movement,” Bruce said. “It’s a mark in history— the tension and the turmoil and the history back then.” “What these coaches taught us was this: If you can come together over common ground, and put aside black-white, you can be successful,” Luckett said. “When you see us interact, you’ll see real love, and that’s a direct result of our coaches.”

(Nov. 8, 2013) Students at Worcester Technical High School took a break from class to see a demonstration of Hardwire LLC’s new military vehicle prototype last Tuesday at the school. The Pocomoke armor and engineering company designed the vehicle with soldiers’ needs and mobility in mind. Similar Hardwire vehicles are undergoing testing by the U.S. Army for everything from survivability under fire to a stress test at negative 60 degrees Fahrenheit, Hardwire’s Vice President of Manufacturing Rob Cosgriff said. “What we hope is that it really inspires the students,” Cosgriff said. “That big pie-in-the-sky idea of making the world a better place, or in our case, safer — that’s what really draws kids.” Three engineers who worked on the Hardwire concept vehicle came to the demonstration at the school, where they discussed the real-world applications of what students are learning in the classroom. “I married together what they’re learning right now to paint it across our vehicle,” Cosgriff said. The vehicle has an “occupant-centric design,” meaning designers created it with the needs of the solider in mind, he said. It borrows from two military vehicles, the Humvee (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) and the MARP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle). Cosgriff said the new design offers solider protection “an order of magnitude ahead of where we’re at now” in a smaller, more mobile package. By testing vehicles like Hardwire’s, the military is able to see what works and find new technologies to incorporate into its designs, he said. Events like the vehicle demo allow Hardwire to reach many students at once, Cosgriff said. “We could spend half a day and really touch the entire group of engineering kids.” The company also exhibited its namesake hardwire — a product originally used for reinforcing buildings and infrastructure — and its bulletproof whiteboards, which piqued students’ interest. Hardwire participated in a STEM camp sponsored by Worcester schools over the summer, thanks to its collaboration with Worcester County Economic Development, Cosgriff said. “It’s really rewarding for us to be able to share technologies that we’re developing with future engineers in our community,” he said.

It’s celebratory, it’s delicious and it’s a martini FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Pomegranate juice makes tasty cocktail come alive DEBORAH LEE WALKER  Contributing Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” might need revision to the tune of “I cannot reiterate the health benefits of pomegranates.” The sweet fruit is rich in antioxidants. The antioxidant potential is thought to be up to three times higher than that of green tea and red wine. It also helps prevent blood clots, not to mention its cancer preventing effects. There is more scientific research being done on the healthy benefits of pomegranate than almost any other fruit due to its potential wellbeing benefits. While we are on the subject of apples and pomegranates, some scholars believe the pomegranate, not the apple, was the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Specifics equate further knowledge, let

American Legion joins with students to support troops (Nov. 8, 2013) Sarge Garlitz, Adjutant of Synepuxent Post #166 American Legion in Ocean City announced that the Connection Volunteers of SDHS have joined forces with the Post in the Support Our Troops program. Laurie Chetelat, the advisor of the Connection Volunteers of Stephen Decatur High School reported they are collecting items for the Post’s program. The items collected will be sent to our military and also delivered to many local veterans in the Worcester County area. The project is being handled by the following clubs and their advisors at the local high school: •Nora Duke - the Leo Club •Mary Malone – Key Club •Commander Revey and MCPO Davie Reynold the NAVY JR ROTC Unit. Worcester County Youth Counseling Service will be sending Christmas Cards with holiday messages in this year’s shipment. At this time they have several truck loads of items that will be picked up at the high school on Veterans Day at 1 p.m. to be transported to Post 66 in Ocean City. The highlight of this pickup event will be Chapter #166 American Legion Riders who will escort the trucks to the American Legion. The Support our Troops Program will continue collecting items until Dec. 7. The boxes will be packed on Dec. 8 and mailed to the troops on Dec. 9. Drop off points are BoggsSee PACKAGES on Page 11B

us delve into the history a bit more. According to the Oxford Companion to Food, the pomegranate has a rich past in ancient Egypt. The Israelites in the desert regretted leaving the refreshing fruit behind, so Moses found it necessary to assure them that they would find it again in the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 8:8). The pomegranate also graced the menus of the ancient Greeks but it seems to have reached the Romans more circuitously via Carthage in north Africa. Spanish sailors took the pomegranate from the Mediterranean region to America. The luscious fruit turned out to be very sea worthy since its hard skin helped retain its “shelf life.” The fruit also spread eastwards, to India and China. Pomegranates are now popular around the Mediterranean and throughout the Middle East as far as India. The single underlying factor that has held back its universal popularity are the seeds, although edible, can be intrusive. But a clever chef knows this is no obstacle. The easiest way to seed a pomegranate is simply cut the fruit in quarters. Then submerge the fruit in a big bowl of cold water and gently loosen the seeds with your fingers. Skim the surface to remove any mem-

brane and then drain the remaining water and seeds through a wire mesh strainer. The crunchy seeds are a festive alternative to croutons, For example, Belgium endive salad with Roquefort and pomegranate seeds is fitting for the most discerned palette. A drizzle of Champagne vinaigrette is subtle and allows the individual flavors to stand out. Thanksgiving is around the corner and menu planning is suggested. Consider roasted squash, arugula, toasted pine nuts, and pomegranate seeds with apple cider vinaigrette. The savory aspect of the roasted squash and the sweet pomegranate seeds are a wonderful contrast not only in flavor but also texture. Pomegranate seeds mixed in with cranberries keeps with tradition and at the same time adds an updated twist on a classic dish. Again, contrast in texture comes to the forefront. Pomegranate juice when reduced to a thick, dark syrup is a wonderful alternative to balsamic vinegar. The easiest way to juice a pomegranate is simply wrap a bunch of seeds in cheesecloth, squeeze the cloth over a bowl, and repeat until you have enough juice. A large pomegranate yields 1/3 to ½ cup of juice. Sweet potato casserole with a touch of reduced pomegranate syrup will please the entire family. Pomegranate jelly makes a festive, holiday gift. If one is not familiar with can-

ning, now is the time to explore new possibilities. Leftovers and a small jar of pomegranate jelly is the perfect “doggie bag” for the famous feast. Time is key factor when deciding a special occasion. Pomegranate martini’s fit into the fall spectacular foliage and are simple to make. This allows the host to concentrate on other aspects of the occasion. Following is Oprah’s favorite pomegranate martini recipe according to Drinks Mixer. INGREDIENTS 1 oz. vodka ½ oz. Cointreau orange liqueur 3 oz. pomegranate juice 1. Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker ¼ filled with chopped ice. Shake well and strain into chilled martini glasses. Serve with a squeeze of lemon.

SECRET INGREDIENT: Destiny Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. – Unknown

RED RIBBON WEEK PUMPKIN SCIENCE First grade students at Ocean City Elementary conducted a math and science investigation using pumpkins. Sarah Parypa, Kendra Tucker, Holden Bunting and Peter Snyder collect data to determine if the size of a pumpkin influences the amount of seeds.

Ocean City Elementary School held Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 28-Nov. 1. One activity the student body participated in was the “OCES Jump Wave.” During the event, all students did one minute of continuous jumping jacks simultaneously followed by a heart-rate check. Students have been learning how to monitor their heart-rate during exercise while in Physical Education classes.

Area holiday bazaars great way to do early Christmas shopping SENIOR SLANT

Jewelry, home decor, toys and clothing among items available at church events IRISH KEMP ■ Contributing Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) Halloween horrors abound around our town. My readers will never believe that I’m out and about, afore dawn, these days. Last week, dressed in my mismatched pj’s, sporting a Groucho Marx hairdo, looking exactly like the old hag that pops up in my mirror, I unwittingly, stepped out into the broad daylight, to pick up my Post. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a TV company truck parked across the street. Trust me folks that driver took off as though he had spotted a bat out of hell. Not to worry big guy, I didn’t mean to frighten you. Actually, you lucked out, my broom’s in the shop. Being in the wrong place at the right time, is not good. Woe is me! For the first time in 20 years I made, not one but two colossal errors in last week’s column. I want to reassure my readers I’m not losing it. The AARP meeting will be on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 10 a.m.at the Knight’s Hall located, bayside, behind Coastal Highway’s, St. Lukes Catholic church. Trust me, the folks, in the picture in last week’s column were not my friends, the everso-avidRedskin fans Jim and Pat Halsey. God forbid they’d ever sport a Phillies shirt. My only excuse for that boo boo can be blamed on the Halloween tactics of my PC’s trick or treat scheme. It lays awake nights drumming up ways to hassle me. Mea Culpa guys, at four score and seven years weird stuff happens to me, on a daily basis. Have you seen my pocketbook lately? What goes around eventually comes around. What a surprise to find out our current editor, Phil Jacobs and the Kemps could have crossed paths 39 years ago. The Kemps lived just a few feet off campus. We rarely missed a Lefty Driesell team, game or a Saturday afternoon Terrapins game. Many of the team members lived across the street from us in University Hills Apartments. Welcome Phil to our fun loving , big/little city by the sea. Shopping, bopping, stopping or just out cropping or popping up around town I found Gary and Ann Henson, Jim and Kathy Ebel, Barbara Giles, John and Fran Kelley, Maureen Pinnix, Mike and Sue Burns, Wayne and Joanna Fenzel , Gary and Martha Kinsey, Nick and Jane Bartolomeo, Vince and Nadine Ryan, Ray and Carlee Archer freshly retired locals John and Rita Strumke and two of the most “ volunteering-est” gals

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN

Owner of Hileman Real Estate Debbie Hileman stands with new Rental Agent Pat Terrill at their 82nd Street office. Terrill and several others moved from Prudential PenFed Realty to Hileman Real Estate last week, when Hileman bought almost 200 of PenFed’s weekly rentals and nearly doubled its listings.

Hileman almost doubles size of company with new venture Business has about 500 rental properties with PenFed’s listings addition CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Nov. 8, 2013) A week ago today, Hileman Real Estate owner Debbie Hileman signed a deal that nearly doubled her company’s size. The business now boasts almost 500 rental properties, with a slew of new weekly rentals in the mix after making the trade with Prudential PenFed Realty. “I’d been looking to expand the rental offers,” Hileman said. “It was like the perfect scenario.” The deal came about through former PenFed rental agent Pat Terrill, who noticed that Hileman’s business had few weekly rentals, Hileman said. She set out to try to recruit Terrill to help with that. “Instead of recruiting her, I ended up buying one whole rental division,” Hileman said. In addition to bringing on approximately 186 new properties for rent, the deal with PenFed brought several new employees to Hileman’s office, including three full-time sales representatives. “It’s just good to be here because we

have local support,” Terrill said from Hileman’s 82nd Street office. “We can think outside the box and offer a more personal service. I think that’s our strong suit.” Hileman said that, even with the expansion, the group will continue to focus on customer service, with rental agents personally inspecting units after they’ve been rented, for example. “We’re large enough now to draw good rentals, but we’re small enough now that we can offer good service,” she said. “That’s the important part.” The growth necessitates some changes, she said, but “we’re not reinventing the wheel.” The office will streamline its operations by having agents specialize in a particular division, rather than cover all of them, for example. Hileman Real Estate now has 10 employees and 18 licensed realtors under subcontract. All have experience in the real estate business, Hileman said. “We’ll have a busy rental office here,” she said. Hileman formed Hileman Real Estate in 1997, after more than a decade of working for now-defunct English Realty. Last week’s expansion was the largest in her company’s history, she said.

Atlantic General Hospital announced recently that Andrew Fowler has joined the organization to serve as vice president of information services and chief information officer. Fowler will oversee the day-to-day information services support functions for Atlantic General Hospital and Health System as well as spearhead Andrew Fowler initiatives such as the PERKS Patient Portal and expansion of telemedicine services.

Prior to Atlantic General, he was the chief information officer for Doctors Hospital, a 520bed acute care facility in Edinburg, Texas. He also served as the CIO of Methodist –Le Bonheur Healthcare in Memphis, Tenn., and Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, N.Y. He has led facilities through key challenges including Y2K planning and delivery, implementation of enterprise resource planning products, and most recently in the development and delivery of advanced clinical systems in direct support of current healthcare reform initiatives, including electronic medical records and patient portals.

Umbrella policy offers protection over and above homeowner’s REAL ESTATE REPORT

(Nov. 8, 2013) Owning real estate is a great way to build wealth, but along with the prosperity comes liability. Many attorneys suggest you set up a limited liability company to hold your properties. The purpose of a limited liability company is to protect your assets from potential liabilities arising from any given property that you own. However, lenders may make it hard for you to move a mortgaged property to an LLC. And in many cases, lenders will not allow the purchase to occur in the LLC name and will require the property to be in the individual owner’s name. In many cases in today’s lending world, owning property in an LLC is an easier task for cash buyers. Also, there is a lot of paperwork that comes along with having an LLC, including filing the tax returns, filing the annual forms with the state in which the LLC is organized, paying the an-

nual fee to the state, and keeping a separate bank account. A transfer could also trigger a tax consequence in some states, so it is important to check first with your ac-

countant. If you want to protect your personal liability, but find it difficult to either purchase or transfer ownership to an LLC, or don’t feel the cost justifies the benefits if you own just one or two properties, another good business practice to shield your assets is to purchase an umbrella insurance policy. Basically, an umbrella policy offers protection over and above your homeowner’s policies. Think of an umbrella policy as added protection. Usually umbrella policy coverage limits start at $1 million and higher policy limits are available for qualified applicants. Also review your insurance policies for each property to make sure they are comprehensive. — Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTOR® with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin.

Gas prices in Md. drop, reach lowest levels Prices at the pump nationwide and in Maryland have reached the lowest levels seen so far this year, thanks to lower crude oil prices, sufficient supplies, and the lack of a major hurricane this season, which has helped refineries run relatively smoothly and maintain ample production. Nov. 1’s national average for regular gasoline is $3.28 per gallon, which is four cents lower than one week ago, 11 cents

less than one month ago and 23 cents less than the same day last year. Maryland’s average price is also at $3.28 per gallon, which is three cents lower than last week, seven cents lower than a week ago, and 27 cents lower than last year’s price for this date.

Terms of Sale: A deposit of $7,500 in the form of certified check, cashier’s check or money order, at the time of sale will be required of all purchasers other than the holder of the Deed of Trust or an affiliate. The deposit(s) must be increased to 10% of the purchase price within 2 business days at the office of the auctioneer. The balance of the purchase price is to be paid in immediately available funds, within ten (10) business days after the final ratification of sale by the Circuit Court for Worcester County. If payment of the balance does not take place within ten (10) business days after ratification, the deposit will be forfeited and the property will be resold at the risk and expense of the defaulting purchaser. The defaulting purchaser shall not be entitled to any surplus proceeds or profits resulting from any resale of the property. In the event the property is purchased by someone other than the note holder or an affiliate, interest shall be paid on the unpaid purchase money at the rate pursuant to the note from date of sale to the date funds are received in the office of the Substitute Trustees. In the event the settlement is delayed for any reason and the property is purchased by someone other than the note holder or an affiliate, there shall be no abatement of interest caused by the delay. Any and all fees in connection with the property incurred prior to or after the sale including, but not limited to, taxes, water, sewer, ground rent, condominium fees, and/or homeowners association dues, and any and all other public charges and assessments payable on an annual basis, including sanitary and/or metropolitan district charges, and all documentary stamps, recordation taxes and transfer taxes shall be borne by the purchaser. The property will be sold in an “AS IS” condition and without any recourse, representations or warranties, either express or implied, as to its nature, condition or description. Neither the Substitute Trustees, the secured

party, the note holder nor any other party makes any warranty or representation of any kind or nature regarding the physical condition of, the description of, or title to the property. The purchaser at the foreclosure sale shall assume the risk of loss for the property immediately after the sale. If the Substitute Trustees are unable to convey the property as described above, by reason of any defect in the title or otherwise, the purchaser’s sole remedy at law or in equity shall be limited to the refund of the aforementioned deposit. Upon refund of the deposit to purchaser, the sale shall be void and of no effect, and the purchaser shall have no further claims against the property, Substitute Trustees or the secured party. The conveyance of the property by the Substitute Trustees to the purchaser at settlement shall be by Trustees’ Deed without covenant or warranty. The purchaser is responsible for, and the property is sold subject to, any environmental matter or condition, whether latent or observable, if any, that may exist at or affect or relate to the property and to any governmental requirements affecting the same. The contract of sale between the Substitute Trustees, as sellers, and the purchaser (the “Contract of Sale”) shall include, by reference, all the terms and conditions contained herein, specifically including, but not limited to, the following provisions: “Purchaser agrees and represents that the purchaser is purchasing the property subject to all matters known and unknown, in “AS IS, WHERE IS” condition. In executing and delivering the Contract of Sale, purchaser has not relied upon nor been induced by any statements or representations of any person, including the Substitute Trustees, the secured party, the note holder or an affiliate or their respective servicers, heirs, personal and legal representatives, agents, employees, successors and assigns (collectively, “Released Parties”), in respect

to the condition of the property, including the environmental condition of the property, unless such representations or statements are specifically set forth in the Contract of Sale. Purchaser has not relied on anything in the foreclosure advertisement, but rather has relied solely on such investigations, examinations or inspections of the property as purchaser has made. Purchaser waives and releases the Released Parties from any and all claims the purchaser or its successors and assigns may have now or in the future may have relating to the condition of the property. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this provision was a negotiated part of the Contract of Sale and serves as an essential component of consideration for the same. The parties specifically acknowledge and agree that this clause bars all claims by purchaser against Released Parties, arising from the condition of or releases from the property pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensations and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, and all other actions pursuant to federal, state or local laws, ordinances or regulations for any environmental condition of or releases from the property. Further, purchaser agrees to indemnify Substitute Trustees for any liability they may have to any third party for an environmental condition of the property. Notwithstanding the parties’ intent that this clause bars all such claims, should a court of competent jurisdiction deem otherwise, purchaser agrees that the presence of this clause should serve as the overwhelming, primary factor in any equitable apportionment of response costs under applicable federal, state or local laws, ordinances, or regulations.” As a part of any sale, the Substitute Trustees, as agents for PNC Bank, National Association, as successor in interest to Mercantile Peninsula Bank (“PNC”), are required, by law, to confirm that each prospective purchaser or refinancing source and each equity holder of each such entity is not or shall not be: (i) a person with whom PNC is restricted from doing business under any Anti-Terrorism Law (as hereinafter defined) or AntiMoney Laundering statutes, (ii) engaged in any business involved in making or receiving any contribution of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of such a person or in any transaction that evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, the prohibitions set forth in any Anti-Terrorism Law or any AntiMoney Laundering statutes, or (iii) otherwise in violation of any Anti-Terrorism Law or Anti-Money Laundering Statutes. For the purposes herein, “Anti-Terrorism Law” shall mean any laws relating to terrorism or money laundering, including Executive Order No. 13224, effective September 24, 2001, the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, Public Law 107-56, the laws comprising or implementing the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as jointly enforced by the United States Justice Department and the

The contract of sale between the Substitute Trustees, as sellers, and the purchaser (the “Contract of Sale”) shall include, by reference, all the terms and conditions contained herein, specifically including, but not limited to, the following provisions: “Purchaser agrees and represents that the purchaser is purchasing the property subject to all matters known and unknown, in “AS IS, WHERE IS” condition. In executing and delivering the Contract of Sale, purchaser has not relied upon nor been induced by any statements or representations of any person, including the Substitute Trustees, the secured party, the note holder or an affiliate or their respective servicers, heirs, personal and legal representatives, agents, employees, successors and assigns (collectively, “Released Parties”), in respect to the condition of the property, including the environmental condition of the property, unless such representations or statements are specifically set forth in the Contract of Sale. Purchaser has not relied on anything in the foreclosure advertisement, but rather has relied solely on such investigations, examinations or inspections of the property as purchaser has made. Purchaser waives and releases the Released Parties from any and all claims the purchaser or its successors and assigns may have now or in the future may have relating to the condition of the property. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this provision was a negotiated part of the Contract of Sale and serves as an essential component of consideration for the same. The parties specifically acknowledge and agree that this clause bars all claims by purchaser against Released Parties, arising from the condition of or releases from the property pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Com-


8C LEGAL NOTICES

pensations and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, and all other actions pursuant to federal, state or local laws, ordinances or regulations for any environmental condition of or releases from the property. Further, purchaser agrees to indemnify Substitute Trustees for any liability they may have to any third party for an environmental condition of the property. Notwithstanding the parties’ intent that this clause bars all such claims, should a court of competent jurisdiction deem otherwise, purchaser agrees that the presence of this clause should serve as the overwhelming, primary factor in any equitable apportionment of response costs under applicable federal, state or local laws, ordinances, or regulations.” As a part of any sale, the Substitute Trustees, as agents for PNC Bank, National Association, as successor in interest to Mercantile Peninsula Bank (“PNC”), are required, by law, to confirm that each prospective purchaser or refinancing source and each equity holder of each such entity is not or shall not be: (i) a person with whom PNC is restricted from doing business under any Anti-Terrorism Law (as hereinafter defined) or AntiMoney Laundering statutes, (ii) engaged in any business involved in making or receiving any contribution of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of such a person or in any transaction that evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, the prohibitions set forth in any Anti-Terrorism Law or any AntiMoney Laundering statutes, or (iii) otherwise in violation of any Anti-Terrorism Law or Anti-Money Laundering Statutes. For the purposes herein, “Anti-Terrorism Law” shall mean any laws relating to terrorism or money laundering, including Executive Order No. 13224, effective September 24, 2001, the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, Public Law 107-56, the laws comprising or implementing the Bank Secrecy Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as jointly enforced by the United States Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the laws administered by the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (as any of the foregoing orders or laws may from time to time be amended, renewed, extended, or replaced).
