In its first mission, the Ocean City Fire Department’s new fire boat pumps a steady stream of water on the Sea Witch, which caught fire just offshore Saturday. Below: Smoke billows out of the sportsfishing vessel as the fishing boat Salty Sons nears the disabled craft to rescue the two people on board.

SMOKE ON THE WATER Charter boat sinks just offshore in view of holiday beachgoers Zack Hoopes Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) An offshore boat fire provided a shocking spectacle to downtown beachgoers over Labor Day weekend, with the two passengers on board safely escaping to another vessel before their own boat sank. Ocean City’s emergency dispatch center received a call for the incident around 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31, according to a local government news release. The Sea Witch, a 50-foot charter fishing boat, appeared to have a fire in its engine com-

partment. The vessel was roughly a quarter-mile off the beach at Eighth Street, although the volume of smoke was clearly visible to other boats and spectators on shore for a much greater distance. “We were on our way back in [to shore] and [the Sea Witch] looked like it was putting out a lot more smoke than usual from the exhaust,” said Justin McGinnis, who was aboard his family’s own boat, the Salty Sons. “When we got closer, you could tell it was See SMOKE on Page 3A

SMOKE ON THE WATER putting smoke out of the intake as well,” McGinnis said. “That’s when you know you’re in trouble.” The two passengers aboard the Sea Witch, with life jackets on, abandoned ship, McGinnis said. The Salty Sons then pulled within roughly 100 feet of the burning vessel, so that McGinnis could heave lines out to the stranded passengers and pull them aboard. The Ocean City Fire Department immediately responded to the scene – marking the inaugural in-action appearance of the OCFD’s new fire boat, which was completed earlier this year. “This was an outstanding example of how good training, good equipment and teamwork can save lives,” OCFD Chief Chris Larmore stated in the release. “I am thrilled that our residents and visitors can see why we have trained so hard to use the new fireboat. Our members did an outstanding job.” The Sea Witch apparently remained afloat for some time after the OCFD had extinguished the fire. But while an attempt was being made to tow the boat back to harbor, it was struck by a large wave, causing it to sink. “I’m sure the bilge pumps weren’t running any more after the fire,” McGinnis said. “It looked to me like that one wave just hit it and filled it up completely.” Hi-Tide Marine Construction has been hired by the Sea Witch’s insurer to recover the wreck. As of press time, airbags were being used to raise the vessel, Denny Sharp of Hi-Tide said. All of the boat’s fuel and oil ports have been plugged and there are no immediate environmental concerns, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Continued from Page 1A

City nixes surf fishing proposal after negative public response Council says plan was still open for discussion; DNR application will be dropped ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) If all else fails, blame the press. That cardinal rule of politics was on clear display Tuesday night, as the City Council made a complete turnaround on its proposal from last week to allow surf fishing vehicles on Ocean City’s beach during the offseason, claiming that the idea never had the body’s full support. “The papers were out there saying that this was what we were going to do,” Councilman Joe Mitrecic said. “I don’t think this was ever a done deal. We were going to have the DNR look at it and come back to it again.” “As I understand it, it was just the possibility of looking at it, but it didn’t come across that way,” Council Secretary Mary Knight said. “In the future, we will have to be more careful in our wording.” The council voted last week to request permission from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to move forward with establishing such a program.

“Local residents come out of hiding to oceanfront properties. That application to the state will now be “We have thousands of condo units withdrawn, City Manager David Recor enjoy the peacefulness of the Ocean City beaches from October to April.

County settles EEOC lawsuit over pay discrimination at LCB Maryland, the Worcester County Liquor Control Board paid the three women, Donna Smith, Kylesha Conner and Sharee Dale, less in wages than clerks who were men, even though they were doing substantially equal work under similar working conditions. When the Maryland General Assembly abolished the Liquor Control Board in 2011, the state transferred the assets and liabilities to Worcester County. The liabilities included alleged violations of the Equal Pay Act, which prohibits discrimination in compensation based on sex. Bloxom said the county was unaware of the lawsuit at the time it was filed. “We didn’t know about it until we got a notice from the EEOC,” he said. In addition to the $60,000 to be paid

Female clerks who received less than male counterparts to get $60k compensation NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Worcester County will pay $60,000 to three women who worked at the now-defunct Liquor Control Board to settle a pay discrimination lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last year. “We’re in the process of cutting the checks now,” county attorney Sonny Bloxom said Wednesday. According to the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of

to Conner, Dale and Smith, the consent decree, filed Aug. 28, resolving the lawsuit prohibits the county from discriminating against any employee on the basis of sex with respect to wages. The county must offer Dale full-time employment when a position becomes available, subject to the recall rights of other employees who might be laid off. The county must also provide training on preventing employee discrimination, with special emphasis on preventing sex-based pay discrimination. Bloxom, County Administrator Harold Higgins and Human Resources Director George Bradley will attend a training session on the issue. Bloxom said he hopes a Maryland Association of Counties training session would qualify or perhaps a session would be available at Wor-Wic Community Col-

lege. “The law requires equal pay for equal work,” stated Spencer H. Lewis Jr., district director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Philadelphia district office, in a Sept. 3 press release. “The EEOC will take vigorous action to enforce the EPA when an employer fails to pay female employees the equal pay they deserve.” Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regional attorney Debra M. Lawrence stated, “This case is another example of EEOC’s efforts to remedy pay discrimination in the workplace. We are pleased that Worcester County worked with us to reach a settlement that not only pays the female clerks their lost wages, but also ensures that women will not be paid less based on their gender.”

Petition criticizes loss of tranquility, fishing detritus committee for it,” Meehan said. “I don’t know why we’d even still consider the option at this time.” “I hope it comes across correctly in the media,” he added. The proposal floated last week would have permitted vehicles from 27th Street to 94th Street from Nov. 1 to March 30. Horses are permitted during the same period south of this stretch, and city staff recommended avoiding any conflict between equine and vehicular uses. North of 94th Street, vehicle access points are limited due to the density of large condos. Under the plan, full-class vehicles, not ATVs, bikes or trailers, would obtain a beach permit via the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, which would allow beach access on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Council voted, however, to open this up to weekends as well. But an additional restriction was added. Under the original staff plan, vehicles would be open to any type of use, not just surf fishing. However, it seemed to be the consensus on council that surf fishermen, at least to begin with, were more likely to establish themselves as good stewards of the program, and council voted to add in the restriction that a valid surf fishing license be required for a vehicle permit. Vehicles would also be required to carry equipment, like shovels and tow rope, to dislodge themselves if stuck in the sand. Stuck vehicles would have two hours to remove themselves or call in a tow. After that, the city would tow the vehicle to its impound lot at the owner’s expense, just as it does with illegally parked cars. Continued from Page 5A

Demolition of the Ocean Voyager Motel complex on 32nd Street began this week as crews fenced off and gutted the building. The project is likely to last through May, though workers might tear down the building as early as next week, according to Steve Berry of Harkins Concrete Construction Inc. The complex included spaced leased for the Pirate’s Den restaurant.

Responders forced to improvise when 600-lb man falls on beach Beach Patrol employs ATV and pickup truck to carry man back to his vehicle ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Although an ability to improvise is common to most emergency service personnel, the unique conditions and diverse population of the resort continue to make Ocean City a challenge for even the quickest of wits. One such scenario was at the end of August when a man weighing nearly 600 pounds was helped off the beach by a multitude of city staff and gear. “This was the largest person I’ve seen, in-person,” said Ocean City Beach Patrol Lt. Ward Kovacs, who responded to the scene on the evening of Monday, Aug. 19. “The man’s friend, who was trying to help him, informed us that he weighed 590 pounds.” The beach patrol, as well as the Ocean City Police Department and the Ocean City Fire Department, responded to a call of a man who had fallen on the beach and was unable to stand. Upon arriving at the scene, they determined the man had not sustained any major injuries, but was simply unable to right himself given the soft sand and his physical girth. Patients are typically removed from

the beach using one of the beach patrol’s ATVs, either sitting behind the driver or on a backboard that can be mounted to the rear of the vehicle. Despite the ATVs being able to support a considerable amount of weight, Kovacs said, the fallen man was unable to mount the ATV on the scene given his physical volume. “We can transport someone who weighs several hundred pounds pretty easily on an ATV, but clearly with this guy that wasn’t going to work,” Kovacs said. Instead, first responders flagged down a maintenance truck from the city’s Public Works Department that was on the beach. The ATV was then used to pull the man into a standing position. With the tools emptied out of the Public Works pickup, the truck backed up behind the man with its tailgate down. The height of the truck, however, was too tall for the man to be able to sit securely on the tailgate. All of the police, beach patrol, and EMS personnel on the scene simultaneously leaned on the truck bed’s rails to lower the suspension to where the man could sit, Kovacs said, and he was then driven back to his own vehicle. Although not a common occurrence, the OCFD fields five or so medical calls per year that involve patients who are physically too large to transport by conventional means, OCFD Assistant Chief Chris Shaffer said. “When we do run into it, it’s one of those deals where you have to think outSee FIRE on Page 8A

CERT program to begin (Aug. 30, 2013) - Citizens can now enroll in the Community Emergency Response Team course planned to begin Sept. 26 at the Ocean City Public Safety Building. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately following a disaster, CERT is a free training course that provides people with basic information for preparedness and techniques when dealing with emergencies. Training covers basic skills including CPR/AED, first aid, recognizing natural and manmade hazards in our local communities, disaster preparedness like emergency plans and disaster supply kits, hazardous material emergencies and basic fire suppression.

CERT courses are offered by the Ocean City Emergency Services Department as part of Ocean City University. Citizens who complete a 16-week general studies program through OC University as well as the Citizens Police Academy can earn a Ph.D. by completing the CERT program. CERT classes begin Thursday, Sept. 26 at 6:45 p.m. and will run each Thursday evening for seven weeks, ending Nov. 14. There will also be one class on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 8 a.m. To register or for more information, contact Ocean City Emergency Services at 410-723-6616 or email cboyles@oceancitymd.gov.

Delp of Sinking Springs, Pa., likely had a sinking feeling last Friday when the person he assaulted after entering a 17th Street apartment grabbed a shotgun. The victim asked a roommate to call police and held Delp at gunpoint until they arrived. Delp, 31, had entered the apartment through the unlocked front door at about 11:45 p.m. He then walked into the bedroom of a man who was watching television. The man told police that the burglar attacked him and punched him on the left side of his face. The victim struck Delp and knocked him to the floor. He then grabbed the shotgun, which was under the bed and pointed it at the burglar. He also yelled for his roommate to call police.

He called police and went outside to direct them to the apartment. When police entered, they saw the victim holding the shotgun at Delp, who was on the floor. They announced that they were police and directed the victim to put down the shotgun, which he did. Police asked Delp why he was in the apartment, but, according to the charging document, he was “unable to form a coherent statement.” He was intoxicated and had urinated on himself. Police charged Delp with third- and fourth-degree burglary and second-degree assault. Delp was seen by a District Court commissioner and released on $10,000 bond.

side the box,” Shaffer said. Most of the city’s ambulances are equipped with hydraulic stretchers that are rated up to 700 pounds, Shaffer said. Like with the ATVs, the issue is less the weight and more the size – the standard stretcher is 18-20 inches wide, and unable to accommodate the girth of a person that size. Specially equipped ambulances, known as ‘bariatric units,’ are available to transport larger-than-normal patients. These include wide stretchers that can be manually leveraged by several people using metal poles, making their weight capacity essentially unlimited. “We’re in the process of looking to upgrade one of our older units into a bariatric unit,” Shaffer said. “The only other unit in the area is in Salisbury. We’re running into situations like this more and more, and we can’t call Salisbury and wait for someone who might be jammed up on another call.”

Council goes ahead with emergency repeal of new paid parking Meter opponents would rather have ordinance go before voters in 2014 ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Despite continued criticism, the Ocean City Mayor and City Council used the emergency ordinance clause of the city’s charter Tuesday night to push through the repeal of the resort’s paid parking additions. Just what the emergency aspect was remains unclear, although the inference from the opposition is that the council just wants a politically inconvenient situation to go away as soon as possible. “If you repeal the ordinance, the citizens can’t weigh in on the issue,” said former City Councilman Vince Gisriel, who was one of the organizers of a petition that would have successfully brought the paid parking additions to referendum had the council not headed off the ballot question this week by repealing the original ordinance. “I think the time to repeal it was back before the turn-in [of the petition] and probably before the process of approving the language with Guy [Ayres, City Solicitor] and getting a campaign together to take it to the streets,” Gisriel said. But the council’s majority, along with Mayor Rick Meehan, defended the quick passage of an ordinance repealing the prior ordinance that added paid parking. An ordinance may be passed as an emergency measure if it has the mayor’s immediate consent, bypassing the customary two readings and two affirmative votes of council. “The goal of the council is to put this to rest and move forward…and to send a clear message,” said Meehan, reiterating his pledge from last week to oppose any further charges for street parking in the resort. Paradoxically, the two members of council who had not supported the additions – Brent Ashley and Margaret Pillas – voted against the repeal, saying they would rather see the issue go before the voters, as intended. “It wasn’t the point that [those who signed the petition] were for or against it,” Pillas said. “They were for taking it to the ballot box. After thinking about it, maybe they did want paid parking on their streets. But they would’ve had a chance to decide for themselves.” Last week, the city’s Board of Election Supervisors verified the results of the petition, showing that 1,648 people had signed the petition, far more than the 1,226 needed to meet the threshold. Petitions must garner 40 percent of the number of voters who participated in the last municipal election to force legislation to referendum. Immediately after the petition was declared a success, the mayor and council introduced a repeal ordinance.

The street selected for metering were initially identified by the city as “lowhanging fruit” where paid parking could be implemented with the least impact on the neighborhood’s street usage due to what is believed to be a heavy rotaSee PUBLIC on Page 10A

Public parking lots could still get meters at later date tion of non-overnight or commercial visitors. But residents and business owners have objected to the town’s attempt to reap more revenue from day-vacationers, as has been the rationale. They also contested that the limited selection of streets was arbitrary and had more to do with politics and appearance than with an actual need for revenue. “We’re trying to lower the burden on the taxpayer,” Meehan said. “Cutting expenses is the most favorable way to do that, but adding revenue is good as well. But this wasn’t a good idea, and it didn’t work out, and we’re listening to what the public wants.” The meters in question were estimated to bring in an additional $115,000 in revenue for the city. The Continued from Page 9A

meters were in effect during July and August before the petition process was complete, so the majority of that revenue has already been collected and the repeal will likely have little effect on the city’s coffers. But Gisriel said that he and the petition’s backers, which included residents and business owners on whose streets the meters went, were opposed to the repeal in principle. “What you’re essentially doing is repealing the right of referendum,” Gisriel said. “You’ve said you’re not going to do any more paid parking, but that’s not binding. What is binding is a referendum vote, either for or against.” Gisriel noted that, theoretically, the ordinance repealing the original parking ordinance could itself be petitioned, creating a referendum on a referen-

dum. “Is that going to happen? I don’t think so,” Gisriel said. “I don’t want to see that go on and on. It reminds me of the movie ‘Groundhog Day.’” However, Gisriel said, the city was not above a court challenge being made as to its determination of an emergency ordinance. “I don’t think this ordinance, by any means, meets what I would call test of an emergency ordinance,” Gisriel said. “I think it would probably have some standing in court.” “Our charter doesn’t provide a test as to what is an emergency and what isn’t,” City Solicitor Guy Ayres said. “If it’s the vote of the council and the mayor to put this into effect without further advertisement [then they may do so].”

Powerboat races return to OC as eighth leg of world contest NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Powerboats will race in waters off Ocean City again next month. On Tuesday, the Worcester County Commissioners approved the request of Tourism Director Lisa Challenger on behalf of race coordinator Phil Houck to hold the World Champion Powerboat Race from the West Ocean City commercial harbor on Oct. 4-6. “We have done this event in the past,” Challenger said. “It’s part of a circuit.” Ocean City will be the eighth leg in the 2013 Off-Shore Powerboat racing series. Other locations are in Solomon’s Island, New York, New Jersey, Michigan and Canada. The event was held in Ocean City two

years ago, but it was not held last year because of a scheduling conflict. Houck said he hopes the race will be held annually. This year, he expects that approximately 40 boats will participate. In past years, 60 to 70 boats participated. Houck is one of the participants. His powerboat can reach speeds of up to 130 miles per hour, he said. His interest in the event is not limited to the race. “I’m here to promote the town and the county,” Houck told the commissioners. Houck wants to use two-thirds of the easterly side of the parking lot for boats and trailers with the remaining one-third open to the general public. Two of the boat launching ramps will remain open for the general public.

(Sept. 6, 2013) Women participating in Zumba classes at the Worcester County Recreation Center in Snow Hill may make their moves without onlookers after an addition is constructed. The energetic dance moves have apparently attracted the attention of some men who like what they’re seeing. “Our population of men walkers has picked up now,” Recreation and Parks Department Director Paige Hurley told the Worcester County Commissioners during their meeting Tuesday. The addition will give their exercising women “their own space,” said Hurley, who declined a request to demonstrate some Zumba moves. At his request, the commissioners approved a $68,280 proposal for professional services from Becker Morgan to

design the building addition for the recreation center, which is on Public Landing Road in Snow Hill. “That space will mimic the same look and finish of the existing rec center,” said Bill Bradshaw, the county’s engineer. A corridor will connect the 5,000square-foot, one-story addition to the east side of the existing administrative office building. In addition to providing more privacy for Zumba classes, the new space will be used for other exercise classes, after-school programs, exercise equipment and restrooms. Project funding of $728,996 is included in the adopted fiscal year 2014 Recreation Department budget. After the project is completed, Program Open Space will reimburse 90 percent of the total cost. An application was sent to the state of Maryland for approval by the Board of Public Works, in order to use the Program Open Space funds for this project.

County will monitor proposal to limit use of poultry manure Industry estimated to bring in $25-$30M from grower payments, related revenue NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 20131) Worcester County officials will continue to monitor the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s proposal to limit the use of poultry manure. If its use is limited, farmers would be hurt financially and that in turn would hurt the county financially. Agriculture and tourism are the county’s main industries. County Commissioner Virgil Shockley has estimated that that the poultry industry brings $25 million to $30 million to the county from grower payments, farmers paying for corn and related revenue. Stateside, the agriculture industry brings in approximately $8 billion to state coffers and the poultry industry accounts for $2 billion of that. The biggest problem of the proposed legislation to limit the use of chicken manure, Shockley said during the commissioners’ meeting Tuesday, is that some chicken growers do not have any land or enough land to use as a place to put the chicken manure after it is re-

moved from the chicken houses. Some fications of what they were trying to reggrowers who lack available space on ulate.

WORCESTER COUNTY BRIEFS NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) The Worcester County Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during their Sept. 3 meeting. President Bud Church and Commissioner Louise Gulyas were unable to attend the meeting.

Proclamation

The commissioners proclaimed September as National Preparedness Month and Sept. 11 as 911 Emergency Number Day. They encourage all citizens to prepare for emergencies and to visit www.ready.gov.

800 MHz rebanding

The commissioners approved an agreement with Harris Corporation regarding the reprogramming of multiple mobile and portable radios, three county 800 MHz sites and the nine MESIN (Maryland Eastern Shore Interoperability Network) sites located across the Eastern Shore. Harris and its employees will perform the reprogramming of existing radios and new radios provided through Harris by Sprint/Nextel. The reprogramming work will be performed by either the local Harris Radio technicians or by technicians sent from the Harris Lynchburg, Va., facility to help speed the process.

Rental assistance

The commissioners approved the annual grant application for the Rental Allowance Program. The program assists county residents with rental assistance and security deposits. More than 100 people are on the waiting list for assistance. The county’s funding level for fiscal year 2014 is $40,000. Continued on Page 15A

Furniture needed

Library roofs

The commissioners approved the base bid price of $48,350 of Mallard Home Improvements for the roof shingle replacement project at the Snow Hill branch library. They did not approve the $69,000 bid of All States Construction Company to replace the slate roof of the Berlin branch library with asphalt shingles because it far exceeded the construction estimate. The high bid was reflective of a new energy code that pertains to new roofs for buildings like the Berlin library that have no insulation in the existing roof. The project will be rebid.

Large marijuana seizure

Maryland State Police charged Dante Antionne Horne, 32, of New York, N.Y., with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute it after finding 20.25 pounds of the drug in his vehicle. Police had stopped his vehicle because of a traffic violation north of Tulls Corner Road in Pocomoke at

During their Aug. 6 meeting, the commissioners approved the purchase of a new gearbox for $20,237, but Siemens Mechanical Sales Division, the company selling it had mistakenly quoted the price of a different unit. “They said they’re sorry, by e-mail,” Tustin told the commissioners.

It offers a significant government savings discount on combined orders of more than $30,000. The furniture, which cost $50,317.13, represents a savings of approximately 30 percent. It will go in the newly leased Market Square building, which houses the Health Department’s Case Management Unit and the Lower Shore Health Insurance Assistance Program. Funding for the furniture is provided by these grant projects.

Some of the residences might have been entered from the golf course. The burglar seems to be targeting money, jewelry and precious metals. One description of a possible suspect is a young white man on a bicycle, but police say this is only one possible description. Police said residents should be aware of all suspicious individuals.

Police asked citizens to call them immediately at 410-641-7747 when suspicious circumstances indicate unusual activity in their neighborhoods. A tip could help solves the cases and prevent additional burglaries from occurring, police said.

Disorderly conduct

A 24-year-old Springfield, Va., man was charged Sept. 1 with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and trespassing after an incident outside a midtown nightspot.

According to Ocean City police, a staff member of the business told Rashad Jamil Abu-Shaikha that he was no longer allowed on the property, but Abu-Shaikha refused to leave. A police officer who told Abu-Shaikha to leave also got no cooperation. AbuShaikha said he had purchased a ticket and was not leaving. After Abu-Shaikha refused to obey the officer’s last warning, the officer told him to put his hands behind his back, but Abu-Shaikha pulled his arm away and said he was not going to jail.

Ocean City police confiscate handgun and martial arts weapons Several separate incidents in resort over past couple days lead to charges filed NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Ocean City police confiscated a handgun and several other weapons during the past few days. Last Thursday, police charged a Virginia man, Richard Jong-Chan Pak, with having a handgun on his person after he told them he had such a weapon in his pocket. A bike officer had smelled the odor of marijuana in the area of North Division Street and St. Louis Avenue at about 10:20 p.m. He saw two men, identified

later as Pak and Anthony Khoa Le, walking and as he got closer to them the odor of marijuana got stronger, so he told them to stop. Pak reportedly flicked a marijuana cigarette to the ground. At about the same time, the officer saw a knife in Le’s pocket so he frisked him and Le said he had a police-style baton on his left hip. The officer took the baton and arrested him. Another officer asked Pak if he had any weapons and Pak said he had a concealed carry permit. When the officer asked the question again, Pak said he had a handgun in his pocket. That officer then removed a Glock 27 handgun from Pak’s right pocket and arrested him. Pak was charged with having a concealed handgun and Le was charged with

possessing a baton. Both of the men are 22 and both are residents of Centreville. On Sunday, a parking enforcement officer saw a pair of metal knuckles in plain view on the dashboard of a Jeep parked in the municipal parking lot at Fourth Street. He contacted a police officer, who also saw the martial arts weapon. When the Jeep’s driver, Enso Oswaldo Ramirez-Garcia, 29, of Beltsville, returned to the vehicle, the parking enforcement officer contacted the police officer again. This time, the officer charged Ramirez-Garcia with possession of a martial arts weapon. Ramirez-Garcia reportedly said he had the metal knuckles to hold his parking receipt on the dashboard. On Saturday, an officer stopped a car near North Division Street after noticing

that neither the driver nor the front seat passenger was wearing a seatbelt. As the driver, Davaun Jamal Winston, 19, of Fredericksburg, Va., searched the vehicle’s glove compartment, the officer saw a pair of metal knuckles and ordered him and his three passengers to exit. As one of the passengers, Eric Gray McCabe, 24, of Spotsylvania, Va., got out, the officer saw a knife clipped to the inside of his right pocket. The officer seized the knife, which was a switchblade. Both men were charged with having a concealed deadly weapon.

Police continue to search for Willards stabbing suspect NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Ramon S. Avelino, 48, of Willards, who is wanted for stabbing an acquaintance early Tuesday morning. He is believed to be in the Delmarva area and he might be driving a mid-1990s blue or black Ramon Avelino Chevrolet Blazer, with unknown Delaware registration. According to Maryland State Police, Avelino stabbed Irneo Rivera, 25, one of his neighbors, and should be considered armed and dangerous. Rivera and several other people gathered at Avelino’s home to socialize Monday evening. Early Tuesday, an altercation occurred and evidence indicated that Avelino stabbed Rivera during that altercation, according to police, who were dispatched to the scene just before 2 a.m. Rivera, who suffered several stab wounds, was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Investigators from the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation and Maryland State Police crime scene technicians went to the site to investigate the stabbing. The crime scene technicians recovered more than one knife at the scene. Those knives and additional evidence have been taken to the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division laboratory for forensic analysis. Anyone with information about Avelino’s location is urged to contact police immediately. Persons may call 911 or the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore is offering the reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to Avelino’s arrest. Calls to Crime Solvers should be made to 410-548-1776.

Second former Berlin paramedic has filed harassment claims Standing up for partner led to retaliation, according to complaint document SHEILA R. CHERRY  Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette BERLINâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;A second former paramedic has filed a discrimination claim, based on retaliation, against the Berlin Fire Company, according to document filed with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights and federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on April 22 and is awaiting response. In the complaint, Jeffrey Dean, of Salisbury, said he had worked as a paramedic and firefighter with the company since October 2005. During

that time, his work performance was deemed satisfactory in evaluations, he said. According to his complaint, that changed in September 2011, when he corroborated allegations of harassment by his work partner, Zackery Tyndall, who had filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging harassment and discrimination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also reported to the Town of Berlin Human Resources Department and Town Administrator the racial and sexual harassment I witnessed against some of the employees. Although an investigation was conducted by the Town of Berlin, which corroborated my witness testimony, the hostile work environment and harassment continued,â&#x20AC;? Dean said in his filing.

Tyndall, also a former paramedic and volunteer fireman, on Aug. 27 filed a civil rights lawsuit in excess of $8 million against the Berlin Volunteer Fire Company and several of its current and former leaders for their alleged roles in a campaign of sexual orientation-based harassment and intimidation. He filed a similar complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In a June 20 notice, EEOC officials said it had closed the case file because they were unable to conclude that violations of federal statutes occurred. The notice of dismissal, however, allowed Tyndall to proceed with his lawsuit by granting him a 90-day window to sue under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Genetic Infor-

mation Nondiscrimination Act or the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, in either federal or state court. It also allowed him to pursue up to three years of back pay. Dean said, depending on the response from EEOC officials, he is considering litigation, too. Because he got involved with Tyndallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quandary, Dean said he was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;subjected to threats of physical violence, a hostile work environment, threats of termination and blatant retaliatory reprimands and disciplinary actions.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was constantly told by supervisors to make Mr. Tyndall â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shut up,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Berlin Fire Company funding debate scheduled for Sept. 9 Public support sought by volunteer organization requesting payments SHEILA R. CHERRY  Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette BERLINâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Possible plans to reinstate some funding to the Berlin Fire Company are on the agenda for the Monday, Sept. 9 mayor and council meeting and those plans come at a time when residents are caught in what might be described as a whirlwind of allegiances, politics, finance and litigation. The July 2012 decision by the mayor and council to stop the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding of the fire company was a response to what town officials said was the fire companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to work with them to resolve complaints of harass-

ment within the ranks of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firefighters and paramedics. The meeting, which is open to the public, is another installment in the long-running debate between town leadership and the volunteer organization that provides firefighting and emergency medical services to Berlin and nearby areas. In an online statement, the fire company asked residents to attend the meeting and speak on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been here for you for 103 years and now we need you to help us. Please come to the Mayor and Council meeting on Monday, September 9, 2013 to support our funding request,â&#x20AC;? it said. A council meeting slated for Aug. 26 was cancelled because of what officials said was a lack of pressing business. However, the mayor and council held

an executive session to discuss financial documents from the company. The discussion was based on an independent review that was conducted by Salisbury-based accounting firm PKS & Company, P.A. The council chose the firm based on three criteria: The firm had conducted past audits for the town; it has audited

EEOC to make ruling on retaliation allegations dall were shunned and isolated by management officials and other personnel in the fire department. Dean’s allegations suggested that the harassment was sanctioned by the hierarchy of the company. Bryon Trimble, then chief of the Berlin Fire Company and the subject of Tyndall’s complaint, “was forced to resign as Chief by the Town of Berlin, which promised to withhold funding if he did not step down,” Dean said, “but he is still a member of the company and is eligible to run for chief again in December 2013.” Dean further alleged that in August 2012, Mark Brown was elected chief to replace Trimble “and vowed to see me and Zack fired or suspended for ‘starting all this’ and for ‘going outside of the family’.” The workplace stress took a toll on his health, Dean’s complaint said. After a fourth reprimand for minor things in four weeks, he said his physician placed him on medical leave for depression and anxiety. “On Jan. 21, 2013, she cleared me medically but the fire company refused to let me come back to work,” he said. “They placed me on administrative leave with very little contact with my Continued from Page 19A

“I also reported to the Town of Berlin Human Resources Department and Town Administrator the racial and sexual harassment I witnessed against some of the employees.” JEFFREY DEAN Former paramedic who has filed a discrimination claim against the Berlin Fire Company current supervisors, Chief Mark Brown and President David Fitzgerald. They made me go through a month-long field assessment in Talbot County, more than an hour and fifteen minutes from my home, on 12-hour shifts four consecutive days a week.” That kept Dean from seeing his son for nearly three weeks, he said. Dean told the state officials, “They also made me go to three psychological examinations — the first psychiatrist ultimately refused to participate because he said it was illegal, (and) the second declared me fit for duty but they still didn’t return me to work.” “I have been ordered to go through a draconian, intimidating process designed to make me quit,” he said. After

completing the assignment, the company did not contact him about returning to work. On April 4, 2013, Dean sustained serious injuries after a drunk driver ran a stop sign and hit his car and he was hospitalized, he said. “I sent them (my supervisors) two different copies of my medical clearance from two different doctors, excusing me from work for four weeks due to the injuries I sustained in the accident,” he said. “I received no response from my supervisors to these notes.” On April 22, in a letter attached to an email, Dean said that company president Fitzgerald wrote, “The Company cannot wait nearly a month, until May 14, 2013, to have you return to paramedic duty as we need someone as soon as possible. Thus, your separation from employment with the Berlin Fire Company will be effective immediately.” The supervisors “had me out on paid administrative leave with almost no communication since Jan. 21, 2013 after I had already expressed a desire and ability to return to work,” Dean said. “This termination will leave me with diminished or no medical coverage in the face of months of medical bills from the accident,” he said.

Payment requests by fire company being considered Williams said the fire company requested the money withheld during the 2012-2013 fiscal budget year along with the money that would normally be paid during FY 2013-2014. The request was a nonstarter for the town officials, who responded with a counter-request for more specific cost estimates for what was needed. At first, Williams said, nothing hap-

pened. Then the town received a letter dated Aug. 25 restating the company’s demand for the full amount, which Williams said came to roughly $1.13 million. There was an underlying message that nothing less would be acceptable, he said. The letter was signed by BFC President David Fitzgerald, Fire Chief Marc Brown, and Board of Directors Chair-

man John Holloway. Williams said the letter would be distributed at the public meeting on Monday. A copy of the letter that was obtained independently follows. So far this year, the company has responded to 198 fire emergencies and 821 medical emergencies. The company answered 361 fire calls and 1,573 emergency medical calls in 2012, according to its Web site.

City bemoans new pension accounting rules slated for 2014 GASB will require towns to include net debt of benefits on balance sheets ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Although the city’s position remains fairly steady or even slightly improved regarding its pension system, city leaders last week bemoaned upcoming accounting standards changes that will force them to incorporate their projected pension liabilities into the city’s total debt burden. Under the Government Accounting Standards Board’s new protocols for 2014, municipalities must show a ‘net position’ of their pension plans on any GASB-supervised balance sheets, includ-

ing the required Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. This position could be an asset, if the municipality’s pension investments exceed the current projected value of its future costs and payouts. If not, as is the case in Ocean City and most municipalities around the county, the position will be a liability. This will not actually change the town’s financial position, but will present it a different way on paper. “We’re not going to divorce this marriage of accounting and funding,” said John Garret of Cavanaugh MacDonald, the city’s pension actuary. “These are going to be balance sheet items now for the employer to report. There are going to be some years where you may have a communication issue.” Given mounting public pressure regarding the town’s debt, city leaders are

already bracing themselves for a negative spin on the changes. “There will be those with a political motive that will say the city is increasing its debt,” City Manager David Recor said. “I think we need to be ready to communicate with the public that this isn’t changing the picture,” Mayor Rick Meehan said. The city has two separate trust funds for pension benefits – one for general employees, and another for public safety employees, who pay into the fund at a higher rate but may retire earlier as is typical with police and fire personnel. Estimated future pension payouts are paid for in two ways. First, both the employee and the employer pay a certain amount into the fund on a per-paycheck basis. This is known as “normal cost.” However, due to changes in the plan or variations in real experience versus the actuarial estimate, the city’s plans gradually accrue additional liability. A portion of this may not be covered by the current assets of the plan, and this net is known as “unfunded accrued liability,” or UAL. The general employees’ trust currently has roughly $7.5 million in UAL — $50.7 million of outstanding liability and $43.2 million in assets — creating a funding ratio of 85.2 percent. These numbers are improved over last year’s 82.4 percent.

The public safety plan, likewise, has $11.8 million in UAL, for a ratio of 78.4 percent, an improvement over 76.6 percent last year. Currently, however, the city is able to count its pension investments as assets on its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), but does not have to realize its payouts on its balance sheet until they actually come due. But under the new Accounting Standards Board standards, the city will have to show its total projected pension costs for all current and living former employees, including future normal costs, as a net of its current pension allocations. With $137.3 million in combined future benefits for both funds, versus $86.1 in combined assets, the city will be looking at a new debt line of roughly $50 million on the CAFR. “We’ll be funding that over a number of years, but the financial report will show that in a much shorter period,” Garret explained. However, many of the Accounting Standards Board’s other rules will not apply to the city, Finance Administrator Martha Bennett noted. The city is already paying off its UAL at a rate exceeding the projected retirement of those involved, and does not have a cost-of-living increase as part of the benefit. See CITY on Page 23A

MSP partners with state food bank to collect donations (Sept. 6, 2013) The Maryland State Police Berlin Barracks, with all other barracks throughout the State of Maryland, have partnered with the Maryland Food Bank to collect food donations and highlight the problem of hunger in Maryland. From Sept. 1-30, all Maryland State Police Barracks and the Maryland State Police Headquarters will collect food for distribution. September is designated as Hunger Action Month in Maryland. Items to be donated include: canned meats, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, canned stews, canned tunas, nuts, seeds and dried or canned beans; oatmeal, breakfast cereal, rice, rice cakes and pasta; canned fruits, juices, canned vegetables, canned soups, sauces and salad dressings; evaporated mild, powdered milk, infant formula, pudding and custards; diapers, toilet paper, plastic or paper plates and cups, sanitary napkins and tampons. No glass containers or medications will be accepted. More than 780,000 Marylanders, including 250,000 children, are food insecure and lack consistent access to sufficient amounts of nutritious food. More than 457,000 of those in need of assistance live in the Maryland Food Bank’s service area. Each Maryland State Police Barrack has a bin in the lobby for food items to be accepted. On Sept. 30, the food will be collected and transported to one of the Maryland Food Bank’s regional distribution centers. The Maryland Food Bank operates food warehouses in Baltimore, Wicomico and Washington counties.

City comes in $14k under budget for 2013 contributions “A lot of these things they’re introducing do not apply to us because we have a relatively conservative plan,” Bennett said. As they city moves forward with funding its pension obligations, the most critical factor will be how much pension payments continue to burden the city’s general fund, at a time when the town is looking for new revenues to bolster its coffers. With both normal costs and the gradual pay-off of UAL factored in, the town paid $3 million this year into the general employees’ pension trust and another $3.96 million into the public safety employees’ trust. However, Bennett said, this total was still $14,000 less than what the city had budgeted for its fiscal year 2012-2013 pension costs. Continued from Page 22A

Maryland casinos want penalties enforced for underage gamblers Currently, no individual consequences, Md. law that allows police to cite minors ALEXANDER PYLES  The Daily Record Newswire (Sept. 6, 2013) Thirty underage gamblers have found their way onto the floor of Maryland casinos since January, a number that has led to some modest fines levied by the state on operators. But when someone under the age of 21 is caught inside one of Maryland’s four commercial gambling facilities, there are no individual consequences — there is no state law that allows police to cite minors. The lack of an enforcement mechanism has created a problem for Maryland’s casino operators, especially Maryland Live Casino next to Arundel Mills mall. At least 16 underage gamblers have snuck onto Maryland Live’s casino floor this year, according to Maryland State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency data. “Given its scale, there are more issues there,” Lottery Director Stephen L. Martino told members of the state gambling commission at its most recent meeting. “Underage gambling is a significant

Other states have found ways to fight underage gambling. Under New Jersey law, anyone younger than 21 caught on the floor of an Atlantic City casino faces a fine between $500 and $1,000 and a six-month suspension of a driver’s license. Some fear punishing minors too harshly, but Luedtke stressed the importance of holding underage gamblers accountable. “It’s an eternal problem in the industry,” he said. “I want Maryland to be the best in preventing it.”

Local breast cancer support group relocates office to West OC Women Supporting Women closes Berlin location, moves to Rt. 50 SHEILA R. CHERRY  Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette BERLIN/OCEAN PINES—Independent breast cancer support organization Women Supporting Women closed its Worcester County office on Old Ocean City Boulevard, reopening at 12216 Ocean Gateway in a cost-saving move. Past volunteer Mary Henderson was hired as the full-time coordinator, along with Salisbury University student Cristina Bustamante, who will handle daily operations. A senior, Bustamante plans to graduate with a dou-

ble major in marketing and management in December 2014. Women Supporting Women’s mission is to provide awareness, education and support to those affected by breast cancer. The immediate goal of the new office, however, might be to get new signs up so individuals can find them. The $900 of signage needed for the door, building and roadside pylon will have to come out of overhead cost, if not donated beforehand, Henderson said. The organization provides surgeons with bags of information kits and products for their patients who are battling cancer, Henderson said. The group provides blankets, scarves, special pillows and cushions, mastectomy products, information pamphlets and wigs free to breast cancer patients.

Most items are donated or made by local volunteers, organizations and businesses, including Apple Discount Drugs, Ayer’s Creek Adventures, Craig’s Drug Store, Christ United Methodist Church, Herl’s Bath & Tile, Kitty’s Flower Shop, Midway GM/Toyota of Pocomoke City, Peninsula Regional Medical Center, Rommel Perdue, Harley-Davidson, Sharp Energy and Sharp Water. Women Supporting Women hosted the first annual High Heel Race in Berlin on June 14, sponsored by Ayers Creek Adventures, Hooters, Ron Jon and Victorian Charm, Henderson said. Other annual events include Bras for a Cause, The Ride for Awareness, the Hope Dinner and health fairs. Ayers Creek will host a “Pink Paddle” party fundraiser Sept. 28 at 8628 Grey Fox Lane from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will include lunch, live music, trophies and a raffle to win a pink kayak. Participants pay $60 for a single Ayers Creek kayak, $100 for a tandem Ayers Creek kayak, or $50 if they use their own kayak, stand up paddle board or canoe. Adults pay $15 and

children ages 5-12 years pay $5 to attend the party. Tickets for the pink kayak raffle cost $5 per ticket or $25 for six and are available at Ayers Creek, Baked Dessert Café and Gallery or Bruder Hill in Berlin. Call 443-513-0889 or email info@ayerscreekadventures.com for more information. The Worcester Chapter Office will participate in the 12th annual Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness on Oct. 12 at Winterplace Park in Salisbury. Starting at 8:30 a.m., walkers will follow a three-mile course through a woodland path or a one-mile fun walk around the pond at the park. The cost is $25 per person for pre-registration, $30 for race-day registration and $5 for each canine companion (leash required). Monthly support group meetings start again at Women Supporting Women’s new location on Thursday, Sept. 18 at 4:30 p.m. The group’s office hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. For more information about Women Supporting Women, call 410-213-1177 or visit www.womensupportingwomen.org.

Planning for the Snow Hill High School renovation and addition project has been under way since 2002. In January 2013, the Maryland Board of Public Works approved the full state construction of $4.6 million for the project. Superintendent of Worcester Schools Dr. Jerry Wilson said a construction manager would be on site beginning in October. The commissioners also approved the request for categorical budget transfers. Wilson, on behalf of the Board of Education, asked for the transfers because of increased costs in its fiscal year 2013 local operating budget related to the loss of two federal after-school grants and higher than anticipated maintenance costs. The loss of those grants resulted in higher than budgeted local expenditures in the categories of instructional support, instructional salaries, textbooks and classroom supplies and student transportation. The categorical increases will be offset by the $300,000 supplemental county appropriations to support the after-school programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-time supplemental county appropriation. The budget transfers were necessary to align the Board of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget with its actual fiscal year 2013 categorical expenditures as it completes its year end closeout process. The original approved operating budget for fiscal year 2013 was $91.08 million. The revised operating budget for that year is $91.38 million.

City staff ask for per-unit threshold to expedite expenditures Adkins requests council to streamline process for high-volume purchases ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Following a suggestion by the head of its Public Works Department, the city is considering streamlining its purchasing procedures to eliminate some, but not all, of the tedious bid openings that fill many of City Council’s work sessions. Public Works Director Hal Adkins suggested last week that the town apply its value rubric for purchases not to the total price of the purchase, but to the unit price of the item in the case of

large-quantity orders. “I feel like we could come up with a wording, that you would find it in your means to account for, that would streamline the policy and make it more effective,” Adkins said. Currently, the city’s department heads may authorize a purchase of up to $500 without getting a price quote. Expenditures over that, and up to $2,500, require staff to find and record price quotes via telephone. Over $2,500, but under $10,000, staff are required to seek and record written price quotes. For purchases in excess of $10,000, bid documents must be approved by the City Council, issued to vendors and the sealed bid envelopes opened and read into the record before the elected body. For purchases of over $25,000,

GIRLS’ SOCCER PHOTO COURTESY JIM KRALL

The Stephen Decatur golf team is ready to dominate in 2013. Pictured, standing from left, Coach Jim Krall, Delaney Iacona, Brooks Holloway, Matt Kristick, George Eppard-Annis, Adam Melson and Coach Don Furbay, and kneeling, Danny Parker, Andrew Urban, Chase Eslin and Teri Adelhardt.

Stephen Decatur golfers ‘extremely talented’ Urban, Parker, Kristick, Iacona currently ranked top four in Bayside South LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Sept. 6, 2013) Stephen Decatur Coach Jim Krall said the nine golfers on his varsity roster are “extremely talented and dedicated.” “They put in their time in the offseason to improve and fine-tune all aspects of the game from tee to green,” said Krall, now in his 16th season as head coach of Jim Krall the Seahawks. “Our top six are consistent and consistency is what every coach hopes for…There’s a lot of golf passion on this year’s squad.” The team lost only one player, Joe Iacona, to graduating, but as the No. 1 golfer on the Eastern Shore in 2012 he was a huge contributor to the Seahawks’ success. Last year was the first time that the golf team, under the direction of Krall,

went undefeated during regular season and regional competition. The squad captured the Bayside Conference and District VIII championship titles. It was also the first time since moving from the 2A classification to 3A in 2007, that Decatur qualified as a team (a foursome consisting of Iacona, Andrew Urban, Matt Ruggiere and Delaney Iacona) for the state finals after a stellar semifinal round. They finished tied for fifth place overall in 3A/4A. “Our goal this year is to try as hard as we can to repeat the (2012) accomplishments and finish at states better than we did last year,” Krall said. Added Urban, “I feel like [we are] a strong, well-rounded golf team capable of winning states this year. We all need a little bit of practice, but with our underclassmen going well beyond what was expected of them, I feel as if we have a great chance to break even more records.” Despite not having Iacona this year, the 2013 team got off to a strong start, winning its first three matches. As of Wednesday after three competitions, Urban, the team’s senior captain, held the top spot in the Bayside South Conference with a 37.67 average. Urban was ranked second in the con-

ference at the end of the 2012 season and received All-Conference First Team honors. “I have a large role I have to take on in leading this team to another undefeated season, and I plan on doing just that,” the four-year team member said. “Our goal for this year as a team is to play to all of our potential…My personal goal is to average under par and be a role model for my teammates and try and get them to compete for the No. 1 spot.” With Urban in top spot after three matches this season, junior Danny Parker was in second place in the Bayside South ranking (38 average), followed closely behind by freshman newcomer Matt Kirstick (38.33). Junior Delaney Iacona (All-Conference First Team 2012) was in fourth place with a 39.67 average. “This is my third year on the varsity team and I feel like my experience and past years of being on the team will help the future golfers,” Iacona said. “I think that the team is looking great so far…I think that making it to states and maybe even getting close to winning states would be a great accomplishment for the team.” Junior veteran Brooks Holloway has also cracked the top four in standings this See SD on Page 38A

Fluty pleased with what players have accomplished in short time LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 6, 2013) Stephen Decatur field hockey Coach Michelle Fluty said the Lady Seahawks still have some aspects of the game to work on, but she has seen steady improvement since preseason began on Aug. 14. “I’m happy with what we’ve accomplished in such a short time,” said Fluty, coach of the team for four seasons. “Our

strength will be in our speed and our ‘never give up’ type of attitude.” After 11 seniors graduated following the 2011 season, 2012 was a “rebuilding year” for the Michelle Fluty Seahawks.

Decatur girls’ soccer team has depth with experienced players ‘We really don’t have any weak links on the field,’ Seahawks’ coach boasts LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 6, 2013) Coach Misty Bunting said the Stephen Decatur girls’ soccer team is “pretty young,” with only three seniors on her 20-player roster, but the squad is strong and has “more depth than in past years.” “We can give the starting 11 a breather Misty Bunting without losing a step on the field,” said Bunting, now in her seventh season at the helm. “I think we’re strongest down the middle of the field–that’s where we have experience–but we really don’t have any weak links on the field.” Eleven Lady Seahawks are returning from last year, when the squad finished with an 11-2-1 record. Decatur lost 6-2 to Atholton in the semifinal round of the 3A East Regional tournament. Five players graduated, four of whom were in the starting line-up. Seven of last year’s starters were underclassmen: one freshman, three sophomores and three juniors. Half of Bunting’s 2012 roster consisted of ninth and 10th graders. Eleven girls who competed last season have returned to the field this year. Bunting will look to her three senior captains–Rebecca Lederman, Liz

Rougcher and Rebecca Haskell–to lead the 2013 squad. “The seniors are great leaders and role models on and off the field,” Bunting said. “They’ve done an exceptional job. Most importantly, they’re leading by example.” Rougcher (All-Bayside Conference First Team 2012) will control the midfield. Lederman played in the back at the sweeper position for most of the 2012 season, but when the Seahawks struggled to put the ball in the net, Bunting moved her to the forward line to get the job done. This year, Lederman, who received All-Bayside Conference First Team honors in 2012, will play up top. “I’ve either been playing forward or center back for my club team and travel team and since I am going to be playing forward in college…it’s going to help me get used to what I need to do,” said Lederman, a four-year player. “You don’t just play defense in the defense position, you play defense on [the] forward [line], so my experience in the back will help me play forward.” Haskell had hip labrum surgery in the spring and she has recovered faster than expected. Bunting said Haskell will make a huge impact in the defensive end. “I’m feeling good. I am practicing now and slowly getting back into playing,” said Haskell, a four-year player. “I’m definitely looking forward to the season, especially since I wasn’t expected to play as early as I am.” Also back to compete is 2012 Second Team All-Conference player, sophomore Alexis McDonough (defense), and Honorable Mention recipSee LADY on Page 39A

Stephen Decatur juniors Mallory Rolleston, right, and Emily Cashman compete in a drill during last Thursday’s practice.

Thirteen veterans back to compete round of the 3A East Regional tournament. Only two players graduated from the 2012 team. Thirteen of the 17 Seahawks on Fluty’s roster this year are veterans. “I’m excited for this year’s team because the girls came back ready to work and they’re willing to put in the effort to improve,” Fluty said. “It’s nice this year to have girls with at least a year of varsity experience under their belts.” She will rely on her seven seniors for leadership. They each have “different strengths,” Fluty said. Senior Erin Florek, a forward, has been a member of the team for four years. She was named to the All-Bayside Conference Second Team in 2012. Florek tore her ACL during the basketball season last winter, but she was cleared to play field hockey before the season began. “I definitely think overall I can help Continued from Page 37A

everyone be motivated more on the field and try to pull everyone together when we’re out there,” Florek said. Teamwork and communication will be key factors in the Seahawks’ success, she said. “We have some stuff to work on, but we’re definitely steps ahead of last year… we’re working together more and the skills are there, too,” Florek said. Senior Cassidy Remmell will play on the forward line with Florek. Veteran Kaci Moore, a senior, will help run the defense along with goalies Abby Friedman, a senior, and Sophia Clemente, a sophomore. “I’m really excited and looking forward to all the games,” said Friedman, a fouryear player. “The offense is doing really [well] and the defense is doing [well], too. Last year was a beginning year because we had so many new players [so] we’re expecting to win more games this year.” Newcomer Sarah Mitrecic, a freshman, will contribute in the midfield. She has field hockey experience and a “solid foundation to build on,” Fluty said. Fluty said the goals this season are for the Seahawks to continue to work hard, to put up a good fight each game and to improve after every competition.

SD golfers playing ‘extremely well’ season. Krall said this is the first time since he started coaching the team 16 years ago that the top four golfers in the conference are Decatur players. “We’re playing extremely well. We’re off to a really great start and the competition has increased this year which makes it even more special, but we’ve got to be cautious and not get overconfident,” Krall said. “I’ve got to keep my team grounded because on any given day [an opponent] can knock you out.” Continued from Page 36A

quicker into more mature soccer players playing at the varsity level.” The Seahawks had a successful 2012 season and they hope to build on what they accomplished last year and advance further into the postseason. “When we started the season this year, it was a lot more intense than last year, which is crucial,” Haskell said. “Practice makes perfect, so if you’re working hard at practice then you’re going to play [well] in the games.” Added Lederman, “We’re a young team this year but they’re really driven and they want it. They all have heart so I think we’ll be good this year.”

I

think we’ll be good,” Stigler said. This is Stigler’s and Lauren Leighton’s second season coaching Decatur cross country. “There are a number of girls competing for top spots.” Senior Chloe FauntLeRoy, a two-year cross country runner, will lead the 14athlete girls’ team “by encourage the girls to do their best and hopefully they will have good practices and do well in the

meets,” she said. “Chloe came back looking like a different runner. She’s a lot stronger this year,” Stigler said. Also returning are seniors Alex Saunders and Alex Tushup and junior Jordan Klebe. Senior Katie Collins and sophomore Alison Alvarado are newcomers to cross country, but they have competed on the

Junior Jake Gaddis and senior Chloe FauntLeRoy lead the Stephen Decatur cross country team on a jog during last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice at the Berlin school.

Coaches look to Gaddis and Herbert to lead boys clearly the top couple and there are a few competing for the last spot. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to find who will be in the fifth spot, which is an important spot,â&#x20AC;? Stigler said. The top five runners on each team earn points for their respective squads during meets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only as strong as your weakest linkâ&#x20AC;ŚWe have a couple younger boys and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of room for improvement.â&#x20AC;? Stigler will rely on veterans, junior Jake Gaddis and senior Kevin Herbert to lead the squad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In cross country, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about leading by example,â&#x20AC;? Stigler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jake and Kevin are the two strongest boys and they push themselves in practice. The other guys see how hard theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cross country is my favorite season. Continued from Page 39A

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to it,â&#x20AC;? Gaddis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that with experience I can help lead the team. I remember being a freshman and sophomore and I watched myself progress and my Jody Stigler times get better and I feel like that will help me encourage them if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the times where they want them to be yetâ&#x20AC;ŚWe have lot underclassmen and lot of promise this year and for years to L. Leighton come.â&#x20AC;? John Niedfeldt, a senior, also returns. Promising runners joining the team include sophomore Parker Harrington and

freshmen Jared Massey and Cameron James. Decatur sports teams, including cross country, have participated in the 3A East Region in the playoffs. This year, Decatur will be in the 3A South Region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this will be beneficial for us in cross country. The 3A East is the toughest in the state, especially for running sports, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always hard for us to compete with them,â&#x20AC;? Stigler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be running against some different schools, similar types of schools to us.â&#x20AC;? Stigler said he would like to see a Decatur runner qualify for states this year. Since Decatur moved from the 2A to 3A classification in 2007, only three have advanced to states: Lindsay Chetelat (2007 and 2008), Mitch Witherow (2008) and Lauren Buckman (2011).

(Sept. 6, 2013) They may not be the most athletic or skilled football players, or even the fastest, but from what Stephen Decatur Coach Bob Knox has seen so far, he thinks the Seahawks are overachievers and they will scratch, claw and do whatever it takes to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is going to be a team the coaching Bob Knox staff will enjoy coaching. The main thing for the coaches is to prepare them as best we can,â&#x20AC;? said Knox, who has led the Seahawks for 29 seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think these kids will ever give up, no matter what the score is. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re intelligent, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re disciplined and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighters. They love playing the game.â&#x20AC;? Although nearly two dozen of the 30 players on Knoxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster competed in 2012, only a few Seahawks who cracked the starting line-up are back. The team is small, in terms of number of players, Knox said, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much depth, which could be an issue if injuries arise. The squad returns just three offensive and four defensive players who started last season, Knox said. The coach will rely on a core group of senior veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Montez Green (offensive/defensive line), Andrew Borradaile (running back/linebacker), Demond Henry (running back/defensive back), Chase Sams (linebacker/tight end) and P.J. Copes (running back/defensive back)â&#x20AC;&#x201C;to lead the team. Sams was named to the 2012 Bayside Conference First Team and Copes received Second Team accolades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be vocal and try to help everyone out in practice and just be a leader out here,â&#x20AC;? said Borradaile, a threeyear player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a lot of work during the winter, getting some of the plays down, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming along well.â&#x20AC;? Henry, a two-year member of the team said as a leader he will â&#x20AC;&#x153;help all the younger guys understand the plays, their assignments and their roles so when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their time to take over they will know what to do.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like we put in a lot of hard work in the off-season with weight training, getting plays in and learning our assignments early and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing out here on the field,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to play hard and come up with big wins.â&#x20AC;? Also returning are juniors Shawnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ye Jones (defensive back/wide receiver) and Justin Meekins, who will be the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterback in 2013. Newcomers who Knox will count on to contribute include senior Talib Rice (wide receiver), juniors Sam Coates (running back/defensive back), Brandon Wooten (offensive line) and Austin Dundore See KNOX on Page 41A

The Stephen Decatur football team’s coaching staff talks to the Seahawks after last Thursday practice at the Berlin school.

Knox thinks boys Nine of 18 players on boys’ soccer team are seniors are overachievers Coach Greenwood: We have a lot of individual talent we need to harness LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 6, 2013) Nine of Coach Jamie Greenwood’s 18 players are seniors and he will count on them to lead the 2013 Stephen Decatur boys’ soccer team. “Most of them have been with the program for four years, so they know the system,” said Greenwood, who has J. Greenwood coached the varsity squad for seven seasons. He was named the 2011 and 2012 Bayside South Conference Coach of the Year. Returning this season are 11 veterans from last year’s team, which posted a 10-4 record and lost 4-0 in the second round of the 3A East Regional tournament to River Hill. Eight players, most of whom were starters last year, graduated. “They’re talented and we have a lot of experience, but we have some major gaps to fill,” Greenwood said. “We’re still working to fill those spots. We’re playing people in different positions to see what unit works best together.” Greenwood will look to senior forward Nick White (2012 All-Bayside Conference First Team) to run the offensive line. In 2012, he netted 14 of the team’s 61 goals. White, a four-year player, was nursing sprained ankles last week.

“I’ll definitely take a big role in leadership … as soon as the first game starts for us, I’ll be able to prove that and hopefully we can come out with a win,” White said. “We’re slowly getting better each day, but there’s room for improvement everywhere. We just want to come out as hard as we can and win every game.” Senior Jared King (All-Bayside Honorable Mention), a two-year member of the team, will lead the defensive effort at center back/sweeper, Greenwood said. “I have a pretty good understanding of the defensive third of the game [and] Nick usually takes control of the offensive third,” King said. “I’m pretty good at organizing the defense. It’s a

lot of communication.” Greenwood will rely on senior David Bernal-Clark to command the midfield. Logan Thumma (Honorable Mention), a senior, returns in the goal for the Seahawks. Greenwood said he has seen some good things from his players during preseason, but there is still work to be done for the squad to be successful. “We have a lot of individual talent we need to harness,” Greenwood said. “I don’t think the kids are playing to the best of their ability right now, but I know they have it in them. The game mindset is not there yet.” Greenwood said the Seahawks have the potential to win 10 games again

(kicker) and sophomores Gus Esham (offensive/defensive line) and De’Quan Andrews (running back/defensive line). The Seahawks finished 2012 with a 55 record. In all other sports, teams automatically qualify to compete in the playoffs, but in football, squads must perform well enough during the regular season to advance. Decatur failed to qualify for the playoffs last year. Knox said the coaching staff has “thrown a lot at the kids” during preseason and they have been very receptive. The Seahawks need to “play as hard as we can, be disciplined, but be very physical and if we do that we believe we’ll be successful,” Knox said. Continued from Page 40A

Decatur was the Bayside South top team in 2011 and 2012 and won the conference title two years ago. “We’ve had a good run … I don’t see why we can win it again,” Greenwood said. “I’m anxious to get (the season) going and see where the chips fall.”

(Sept. 6, 2013) Stephen Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer describes the Lady Seahawks as “very energetic” players who love the game of volleyball. “When they come out (on the court,) they’re ready to play. There are things they can improve on, but they’re doing really well so far,” said the second-year coach. Sarah Zimmer “They all get along very well. They work hard in practice and they’re always asking what they can do to improve.” Six of the girls on Zimmer’s 11-player

roster competed last year, when the team went 10-7. The Seahawks’ 2012 season came to an end in the second round of the 3A East Regional tournament with a loss to River Hill. Four starters graduated from last year’s squad, but the players returning this season all got time on the court during matches. Leading the 2013 team will be senior captains and four-year players, Katie VanBruggen and Taylor Black. Both girls were named to the All-Bayside Conference Second Team in 2012. Zimmer said the Seahawks look up to their captains, who are leaders on and off the court. “Definitely the experience will help (to lead the squad) and being able to bond with the girls and knowing their strengths and their weaknesses…,” Black said. “The last two years we’ve come together and we’re really close and that definitely helps our game.” Added VanBruggen, “I think we’re going to be good this year. Last year we kind of had [some] ups and downs, but this year we’re just trying to work out all our kinks and go farther than we did last year. I can’t wait for [the season] to start.” Also back to compete are seniors Gabrielle Ortega, Samantha Quilter (libero/defensive specialist) and Kiley Cooke (2012 All-Bayside Honorable Mention) and junior Hannah Adkins (Honorable Mention). Joining the squad this year are juniors Haley Trice and Kayla Heinz, both setters, Haley McDonough and Victoria Williams. Senior Ashley DePaul was a member of the Decatur soccer team the last two fall seasons, but in 2013, she will play volleyball. “I want to see the girls continue to work hard and improve their skills every day and that effort will show on the court,” Zimmer said.

PAGE 44A

SEPTEMBER 6, 2013

An over-reaction by all involved

Seriously? Residents’ outrage over Ocean City officials’ proposal to allow driving on the beach in the offseason was the media’s fault? Understandably, the City Council had to say something to the angry crowd protesting that idea Tuesday, and the media, just like politicians themselves, are easy targets. The irony, though, is that earlier this week a reader accused this newspaper of purposely underplaying the story, apparently as some part of a city-inspired cover-up. As they say, some days you eat the bear, some days the bear eats you and some days everyone takes a bite. Regardless of whether the story was overplayed or underplayed, both the council and the crowd overreacted. All the council had to say was, “OK, we hear you” rather than try to find someone else to blame. Meanwhile, opponents must have envisioned something vehicular happening on the beach far beyond the likely result of this proposal. Presumably, the idea would have been to allow surf anglers, not joyriders, to drive on the beach when it is generally empty and, except for a few hardy surfers, that’s what it is from December through February. Few, if any, anglers hit this beach that time of year because there aren’t many fish to catch in Ocean City’s surf in the winter. There is some action in November and March, but most veteran surf anglers will still head to Assateague rather than Ocean City because the park’s beach has a natural bottom along the surf line. Ocean City’s beach replenishment levels the bottom, leaving sizable fish nowhere to hide. Further, few people would be willing to plunk down a decent amount of money for an Ocean City permit when the odds of catching anything notable aren’t that good. Chances are there would have been fewer than a dozen over-sand vehicles on Ocean City’s beach at any time in November and March and none at all in the dead of winter. But the public doesn’t want it, the council agreed and that argument is over.

Parking meter mess shows little respect

Editor, Who is accountable for the parking meter mess? Very recently some of our city government leaders decided that they would install paid parking meters in several locations in Ocean City. After a short time it was apparent that the citizens didn’t agree with them and a petition was circulated to stop it. Now we hear that it has been stopped and the decision has been reversed. As I see it, that is not the end of the story. Who is accountable for the expense for the equipment, the labor to install it, remove it and maybe now scrap it. How about the people who paid to park in those locations? Can they get their money back? Who will be held accountable to pay for it? Let me guess—it will be the hard working and retired taxpayers of Ocean City who will pay for the mess made by some irresponsible decision makers. I’m tired of people spending and wasting our money with no regard for the people who have to pay the bills. As I see it, there is little respect for us or our hardearned money. If they wasted their own money like they do ours they’d be bankrupt. In government, our money should be

Life-Saving Station Museum says thanks

Editor, On behalf of The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful people and organizations that made our free summer programs possible. With their help we were able to provide free educational “classes” everyday of the week for eight weeks this July and August and reached over 1,500 people. George Hurley shared his knowledge of Ocean City history during the O.C.B.C. “Ocean City Before Condominiums” program and Bob Stevens promoted the museum and his passion for the U.S. Life-Saving Service while hosting “Storm Warriors”. Don Schaefer, Joe Britvch and Don Logan of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary schooled visitors on the

art of knot tying and members of the Ocean City Beach Patrol advised participant on the latest techniques of beach safety. New to our lineup this year was “Diary of a Reptile,” which was hosted by interns from the Delmarva Discovery Center in Pocomoke City. The Ocean City Museum Society is very grateful to all of our volunteers and supporters who allow us to continue our mission to inspire and support lifelong interest in Ocean City History and the U.S. Life-Saving Service. Thank you one and all! Sandra D. Hurley Curator, Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum

SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 I have two dogs. One is not normal and the other is worse. I say that because of the two, the smaller and still marginally feral little beast has yet to accept the fact By Stewart that I am not Dobson going to chop her up and make puppy roulades out of her for dinner. And that goes whether we are entertaining or not and regardless of our guests’ preferences. Were I to be asked such a question by a potential dinner invitee, I would be clear and direct: “Yes, we are inviting you to dinner, but no, we will not be having puppy roulades, should you choose to reconsider.” Besides, it is my belief, although others might disagree, that dining on your pets is wrong and that anyone who even suggests that dinner will consist of “cockers and mussels alive, alive-o” is going straight to hell. This rule extends beyond the feline and canine companions. Pet clams, for instance, which I had in a saltwater aquarium. I will confess that frustration nearly got the best of me when, after five long years of training, I could not teach it to sit on command. Both of us came perilously close to being steamed, but a pet is a pet and being a clam owner does have its upside: it never wakes you up at night and does not bark to go out. It just goes, probably unbeknownst to even itself. The clam, which was not named, because that would be stupid, was eventually freed to roam wild and free, or whatever it is that clams do for fun. And the saltwater tank was getting funky anyway. The aforementioned dog, however, might as well be a clam for all the physical contact she has with me. I come in the front door, she runs out the back door. It’s as simple as that and is despite my best efforts to appear nonthreatening. I won’t go into her real name because it is a term for a Native American abode that no one will know and I didn’t name her anyway. Let’s call her Teepee, because it reflects one of the few things she is good at doing, if you get my meaning. The other area where she excels is in catching and eating everything, regardless of all the good stuff she receives courtesy of her kind master, which is obviously someone else. As of this writing, she is on her 17th cicada, which she will down like a bag of Fritos. “You have to work with her,” her (and my) master advises, “If you want any kind of relationship with this dog.” But on those few attempts when I have tried, she stares at me with eyes that suggest, “It’s a good thing I’m not armed.” The plain truth is that she wants no parts of me. On the other hand, given her knack of catching and eating whatever is available, I wouldn’t be too sure.

OPINION 45A

READERS’ FORUM program allowing vehicles on the beach between November 1 and March 31 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vehicles would be restricted to the beach between 27th and 94th streets. All City departments opposed this pilot. We agree with them, it’s a bad idea. Some of the problems department heads thought the city might face include fuel leaks, noise, smells, and water quality. Why must we risk polluting our beach with possible fuel spills? Assateague and Delaware permit vehicles on the beach in some areas. The sand on our beach is much looser than theirs. Vehicles on Ocean City’s beach would be more likely to get stuck in sand and have to be towed. Why should we risk ruts, erosion, Continued from Page 44A

sand destabilization and dune damage from vehicles driving here? Ocean City’s beach is heavily developed. Our beach is not only enjoyed by visitors in the summer, but by homeowners who relish the beach’s serenity in the off-season. This is in sharp contrast to the areas in Assateague and Delaware that permit vehicles on the beach. These beaches are unpopulated. Why are we disturbing our serenity in Ocean City? The beauty of our beach will be shattered by driving and parking vehicles. Picture walking at sunrise on a beach full of vehicles. Why are we sacrificing the beauty of our beach? Department heads recognized these negative impacts and recommended that the Council not pursue the pilot.

%

Why are we choosing to ignore the department heads? Where were the people who guard our waterways, like Maryland‘s Department of Natural Resources and the Coastal Bays Program? Why weren’t they included in the Council’s discussions? These organizations must judge the impact of vehicles on our beach. They must approve the pilot. Why didn’t the council perform its due diligence and involve them? Surf fishing is a safe and wonderful sport — a sport that forms part of our identity. However, do vehicles on the beach really add to this sport in Ocean City? Because of unanswered questions, risks and negative impacts, why would we want to put vehicles on our beach?

percent versus an estimate of 4 percent growth. Sales and use tax receipts increased by only 0.7 percent from the previous year, a level of growth that failed to keep pace with the rate of inflation for the same period. Given the state’s questionable nearterm economic outlook, Franchot urged the governor and General Assembly to proceed with caution and fiscal restraint. “These revenue figures highlight an economy that remains exceedingly fragile and uncertain, and they remind us that we must proceed on a prudent financial course in the months ahead. With wages failing to keep pace with the cost of living for too many Maryland families, I would strongly urge my colleagues to resist creating any additional unpredictability for Maryland consumers and small businesses,” Comptroller Franchot said. “To assure Maryland’s taxpayers that their government understands the uncertain fiscal and economic climate we still face, I firmly believe that any fund balance must be saved and not spent.” Comptroller Franchot noted several factors that have contributed to the state of Maryland’s lethargic revenue performance for the past fiscal year, which began on July 1, 2012 and concluded on June 30, 2013.

Among them were: •Maryland’s high unemployment rate which, at 96 percent of the national unemployment rate, is the highest it has been relative to the US rate since the late 1990s •The ongoing consequences of sequestration on a state economy that remains heavily reliant upon federal jobs, spending and business opportunities •The effects of the retroactive state income tax increase that was enacted during the May 2012 special session of the Maryland General Assembly •The expiration of the federal payroll tax holiday, which increased the tax burden on the average Maryland worker by nearly $700 annually “Given the challenges that lie ahead, it is more imperative than ever that we spend taxpayer dollars in the most effective and efficient ways possible, and reassure Maryland’s taxpayers that we are getting the best possible results in return,” said Franchot. “Maryland has long been recognized as a state with extraordinary economic assets, and with leaders who will work together in a spirit of shared resolve to ensure our fiscal and economic security. It is for these reasons that I remain optimistic that we will rise to the challenges that still lie ahead.”

Fifth annual Brews on the Beach this Saturday Hooper’s Crab House festival to feature more than 100 beers from approximately 25 Maryland, Delaware and Va. breweries CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City will host the fifth annual Brews on the Beach craft beer festival on Saturday. The festival will feature more than 100 beers from around 25 breweries and is centered on local brews this year, Hooper’s Manager Patrick Brady said. “In the past, we featured craft brews from around the United States. This year, we’re really focusing on Maryland, Delaware, Virginia” and other local breweries, Brady said. “Just from Ocean City alone, we’re going to have Fin City, Burley Oak, de Lazy Lizard, Shorebilly (and) Tall Tales” breweries at the festival. Fin City is Hooper’s in-house brewing company, located on the second floor of the restaurant. The idea for

Ocean City’s oldest brewery came two years ago at the Brews on the Beach festival, when brewer Vince Wright approached Hooper’s staff. Fin City will have several brews available for tasting at Saturday’s festival: its White Marlin Pale Ale, Captain Jack’s Pumpkin Ale, Jackspot Amber and Sneaky Wheat. Visitors who like what they taste at the festival can bring home a build-your-own six-pack for $10. Mississippi native Blake Haley will play live music at the event. Brews on the Beach started in 2009, when then-local craft beer enthusiast and Clear Channel Radio Manager Jefferson Ward approached Hooper’s with the idea. “He just wanted to bring awareness to the craft beer world and thought Hooper’s would be a good fit,” Brady said. “Now that we have a microbrewery inside Hooper’s, it’s a perfect fit.” Tickets for Brews on the Beach cost $25 in advance or $35 at the door and include unlimited two-ounce beer samples and a commemorative fifth annual Brews on the Beach pint glass. Part of the proceeds benefits Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House by the Sea, an or-

ganization that provides terminally ill children and their families with a weeklong vacation in Ocean City. “It’s just a great organization. You can’t help but want to help them,” Brady said. Hooper’s holds other events throughout the year, like its Dream Date Auction, to raise money for the charity and gives House by the Sea families an Eastern Shore crab feast while they’re in town, he said. Last year, admissions from around 500 brew enthusiasts helped fund the charity. Brews on the Beach runs from 12-5 p.m. Saturday at Hooper’s Crab House at 12913 Ocean Gateway, located at the foot of the Route 50 bridge in West Ocean City. Attendees must be 21 years old and bring a valid ID. Designated driver tickets are available for $10 and include unlimited non-alcoholic drinks at the festival. Call Hooper’s at 410-213-1771 for advance tickets. Hooper’s will be open for normal business during Brews on the Beach, which will take place outside under a tent.

Red Knights to present 9/11 Parade of Brothers Memorial Ride Service to follow Wed. at Ocean City Firefighter’s Memorial on Boardwalk CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) The local Red Knights Motorcycle Club, Maryland Chapter 3, will host its ninth annual 9/11 Parade of Brothers Memorial Ride on Wednesday, Sept. 11, to remember those who lost their lives in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. “We’re all familiar with 9/11 and the big thing in this country is ‘Never forget.’ We just thought we would try to memorialize it,” said local Red Knights Treasurer and Senior Road Captain John Tartufo, who helps organize the event each year. The local Red Knights chapter of about 100 members will join other motorcyclists at the Boardwalk at 27th Street for registration starting at 9 a.m. At 11 a.m., the group gathers on the Boardwalk, where motorcycles decked in American flags and other patriotic trimmings parade down the boards starting at 11:30 a.m. The ride ends at the Ocean City Firefighter’s Memorial on North Division Street and the Boardwalk at noon, where

a memorial service takes place. Local Red Knights President Ed Kukta will deliver a short speech, as will several other officials, and there will be a laying of wreathes and honor guard ceremony, lasting about 40 minutes. “It just draws such a crowd. It’s unbelievable, and it’s not unbelievable,” Tartufo said of the service. After the service, motorcyclists will take an escorted ride out of Ocean City on Route 50 to the Moose Lodge in Roxana, Del. for lunch and fellowship. Registration for the memorial ride is $10 per bike and includes the ride down the Boardwalk, the escorted ride to lunch at the Moose Lodge and a ride pin. The proceeds will benefit the Delaware Burn Camp at Camp Barnes in Frankford, a weeklong camp for children who have been seriously burned that provides therapy and helps children adjust to their injuries. “For the kids that live in Delaware, it’s free,” Tartufo said, but “there is no burn camp on this side of the Chesapeake Bay bridge, so for any of the kids in Maryland that have been so unfortunately as to have been burned, they have to have someone sponsor them, and that’s what we do.” Last year, the local Red Knights chapter helped remodel a bathroom and install electricity at the camp. The 2012 memorial ride saw around 160 participants, Tartufo said.

Maryland Chapter 3 hosted its eighth annual “9/11 Parade of Brothers Memorial Ride” last year. The Sept. 11 parade, which included 140 participants, was followed by the “9/11 A Day of Remembrance Ceremony” at the Ocean City Firefighter’s Memorial at Division Street on the Boardwalk.

“This year, it boarders on Bike Fest and Bike Week, so we could expect anywhere from 300 and upward,” he said. “It all depends on the weather and how many people show up.” The ride is open to all motorcyclists, not just members of the Red Knights, and takes place rain or shine. Since the group started the memorial

ride in Ocean City, the response has been “nothing but positive,” Tartufo said. “When the American public sees something like this, they get behind it.” To learn more about the Red Knights Maryland Chapter 3 9/11 Parade of Brothers Memorial Ride, visit http://redknightsmd3.com or call Tartufo at 443614-3425.

Fall guarding comes with unique challenges for beach patrol ON GUARD

Fewer towers and SRTs patrolling resort beach KRISTIN JOSON  Contributing Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Although Labor Day marks the traditional end of the summer season and begins what the Ocean City Beach Patrol refers to as “fall guarding,” there will still be a lot of beautiful sunny beach days ahead, well into the fall. What we want you to be aware of is that fall guarding is different from guarding during the summer months and it comes with many unique challenges. During this period, we are in a reduced coverage mode with fewer lifeguard towers and surf rescue technicians patrolling the beach. This reduction in personnel is an annual occurrence with an earlier start of college classes and the return of our education professionals to school systems throughout the U.S. Additionally, tropical storm activity in the Atlantic is at its peak during this time and contributes to rougher surf. This heavy surf contributes to the frequency and severity of rip currents, which account for 95 percent of surf rescues. With fewer guards on the beach and stands that are farther apart, a guard may have to run two blocks (200 meters) to rescue a victim where as in the summer they need only run 50 meters. In order to increase safety and coverage of the beach, the beach patrol will rely more heavily on its motorized support vehicles to patrol between stands. This enables them to provide back up if the need should arise. Although we have less available personnel, the beach patrol remains committed to provide surf rescue technicians along the entire beach for all visitors and residents. So rather than have unguarded areas, the number of available lifeguard towers are equally distributed along the beachfront. As this redistribution occurs, the location and distance between stands changes. We will continue to provide coverage from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. along all 10 miles of Ocean City beaches until Sunday, Sept. 22. This coverage will be done with fewer personnel and lifeguard stands, however, we will supplement this coverage by increasing the number of mobile rescue units patrolling the beach. These mobile units are first aid and AED equipped with one SRT (rider) acting as the primary rescue swimmer while the other SRT (driver) maintains radio communication and backup during an emergency. Both are qualified as surf rescue technicians, medical first responders and are quad (ATV) certified.

Another difference you may notice during the fall season is where surfing is allowed. OCBP Captain Butch Arbin will modify the ordinance that restricts surfing and allow surfing along the entire beach, except where guards are posted. The beach patrol keeps the swimmers in front or near their stand and surfers are encouraged to congregate away from the swimmers. This is a time of the year the surfers enjoy. They can surf while the patrol is on duty and not be confined to designated surfing beaches like they are during the summer. Surfers must still utilize an ankle

leash and remain 50 yards from the nearest swimmer. Having surfers in the vicinity often proves valuable in saving lives. It is helpful to have the extra flotation devices in the water at this time of year when the coverage is spread over larger spans of beach. It is not unusual for surfers to aid a distressed swimmer and keep them afloat until a surf rescue technician can reach them and take them safely back to shore. Although surfing restrictions have been modified, the beach patrol still reserves the right to prohibit surfing in certain areas or under certain conditions. The use of skim boards and other watercraft (kite surfers, windsurfers, paddle boards, kayaks, etc) is still prohibited. Even though fall guarding is differ-

ent than guarding during July, the first priority of the beach patrol continues to be public safety. To aide your SRT, the beach patrol suggests taking extra precautions and make sure to walk the short distance to the nearest lifeguard stand and check in with the SRT and always swim in the vicinity of the SRT on duty. We strongly encourage all beach patrons to restrict any water related activities to times when Beach Patrol personnel are on duty, never swim alone, always stay with the limits of their ability and never rely on a flotation device. Guard stand placement may relocate daily as conditions change. The exact location of guard stands is available everyday by calling beach patrol headquarters at 410-289-7556, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Pie: favorite American dish whether sweet or savory FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Make into hearty entree or fill with fruit for a dessert DEBORAH LEE WALKER  Contributing Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Cake or pie? That’s the proverbial dessert question. Personally, I prefer pies. The crispy crust encasing either a sweet or savory filling is simply divine. The concept is so simple that it could be why the history of pie is so rich in flavor. The pies we know today are a relatively recent addition to a history that goes back to the Neolithic Period. The round, flat discs were known as “galettes” and were made with grains and honey and cooked over coals. The Greeks carried on the galettes tradition, but they realized it also would be a useful vessel to cook raw meat. The first pies were called “coffins” (the word actually meant a basket or box). In actuality, the pastry shells were often too hard to eat, since the crust could be as much as several inches thick to withstand the many hours of baking. When the Romans conquered Greece, they took the art of pie making with them. The poor could seldom af-

ford meat, so the pies were more or less on the menu of the wealthy and educated. During this period, the Romans made the recipe more complex by adding meat and seafood. Oysters, mussels, lampreys, and fish were combined in the filling. The delights of pie spread throughout Europe via the Roman roads, leading every country to adapt recipes to their customs and palettes. The medieval pies, recorded as “pyes,” reached the height of fame in the royal courts. Twelfth century English courts used the whole fowl in the pie and hung the legs over the sides of the crust as handles. But the piece de resistance came in the 14th century during the reign of the Duke of Burgundy. French chefs came up with idea of “sotelties.” Sotelties were food disguised in an ornamental way. The purpose was to alleviate boredom while waiting for the next course and to entertain the guests. The Duke of Burgundy’s chef made an immense pie that opened to the tune of 28 musicians playing within the pie. Out of the pie came a captive girl representing the “captive” Church

of the Middle East. Two particular pies were a later specialty in English kitchens: shepherd’s pie and cottage pie. Today the names are interchangeable, but technically a Shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and cottage pie is made with beef. Both are topped with mashed potatoes. Pies are one of America’s favorite dishes, whether dessert or as an entree. Savory pies are just as popular as sweet pies. A deconstructed savory pie is the recipe of the day. Pie dippers (sticks) encrusted with ParmigianoReggiano cheese, cracked pepper and thyme dipped in marinara sauce is a creative dish for a buffet or football party. If there is no time to make fresh marinara sauce, a good quality bottled sauce is perfectly acceptable. Pie dippers are fun and your guests will appreciate your cleverness.

ENTERTAINMENT:

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor new romances for unpaired Ewes and Rams. Already-paired Arian twosomes experience renewed harmony in their relationships. Money matters also take a bright turn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Use that strong Bovine determination to help you keep the faith with your convictions while you move through a period of uncertainty. Things begin to ease by the week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to your intuition. It could be alerting you to be more careful about accepting a “statement of fact” simply on trust. Don’t be shy about asking for more proof. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Concern for the well-being of someone in need is admirable. But don’t forget to take care of yourself as well. Ask a family member, close friend or colleague to help you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s OK to focus on the demands of your career. But try to avoid misunderstandings by also reaching out to family and friends. Your sharp intuitive sense kicks in by midweek. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Keep a rein on that green-eyed monster. Jealousy is counterproductive. Instead of resenting a colleague’s good points, concentrate on developing your own abilities. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Spending time on a creative project during this high-energy week can pay off both in emotional satisfaction and in impressing someone who is glad to see this side of you. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Now is a good time to start planning that trip you’ve put off because of the demands on your time. Be sure to choose a destination that is new and exciting. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That upbeat mood in the first part of the week makes you eager to take on new ventures. A more serious note sets in later to help you assess an upcoming decision. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A high energy level gives the Goat the get-up-and-go to finish outstanding tasks before deadline, leaving time for well-earned fun and games with friends and family. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dealing with disappointment is never easy. But the wise Aquarian will use it as a vital lesson and be the better for it. A close friend has something important to say. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Best bet is not to get involved in an argument between colleagues until you know more about who started it and why. And even then, appearances could be deceiving. Be alert. BORN THIS WEEK: You have creative gifts that inspire those who get to see this sometimes-hidden side of you.

Plein Air paintings on display at OC Center for the Arts Opening reception for exhibit to take place Sept. 6 at 94th Street gallery (Sept. 6, 2013) Join the Art League of Ocean City on Friday, Sept. 6 from 5-7 p.m. for the opening reception of the Plein Air painting exhibit. Aug. 9-10, the Art League of OC held its annual Plein Air event where 50 artists from six states painted at the Boardwalk, the West Ocean City harbor, bayside marshes and Northside Park. The Plein Air paintings will be on exhibit at the OC Center for the Arts on 94th Street during September. The Plein Air paintings were judged by watercolor artist Jeanne Landau and prizes were awarded. The winners were: Cheryl Wisbrock, first place and $1,000 (prize sponsored by Paco’s Paradise) for her painting of the marsh at 76 Street; Dorothy Harrison Braun, second place ($500 prize sponsored by OC Eks Lodge) for her painting of a fishing boat; third place, Dennis Young ($250 prize sponsored by Worcester County) for his pastel painting of a beach house and boats docked on 94th Street in Ocean City. Honorable mentions went to Debra Howard, Lissa Abrams, and Tinsel Hughes. On Aug. 11, 22 artists participated in a quick draw event that was held on the Boardwalk next to the Life Saving Station Museum. The quick draw winners were: first place, Ann Crostic $100; second place, Ann Schaefer, $75 and third place, Cheryl Wisbrock, $50. Honorable mention went to Valerie Witowski. The judge for the quick draw was Michel Demanche from Salisbury University.

Featured in the galleria will be the exhibit, “FLUENCY: Salisbury University Faculty and Student Artwork in Dialogue.” The exhibit will be curated by the Salisbury University art department chair, Brooke Rogers. The exhibit will feature works by professors, each paired with work by a student. The professors paired with students are: JeanneAnderton/Jonathan Arias, Ed Brown/Melanie Lyons, Jess Davis/Diana Johnson, Paul Flexner/Elissa Salerno, Jim Hill/Jonathan Demauro, Marjorie Hill/Becky Boyd, Jinchul Kim/Katie Jang, Dean Peterson/Sarah Wilhelm and Brooke Rogers/Monica Forrester. During September, Faye Kempton will be the artist in residence. Swing by the Center for the Arts to see her dichroic glass jewelry and watercolor and acrylic paintings. In addition to the dichroic glass jewelry and her paintings she is also a sculptor and a stone carver. Carl Forsberg will be featured in the member spotlight with his portraitlike photographs of birds. He has always had an interest in photography and things that fly. He loves to photograph birds, which he does mostly in the comforts of his own backyard. “In my work of bird photography I attempt to capture the bird’s individuality, personality, charm and mood at the time of the shot” Forsberg said. “I may spend days, into weeks and thousands of shots for one keeper.” The OC Center for the Arts, which is run by the nonprofit, Art League of OC, is located on 94th Street, bayside. The galleries are open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, contact the Art League of Ocean City at 410-5249433 or visit www.artleagueofoceancity.org.

American Legion Post #166 offers Junior Shooting Program Fall session begins Sept. 18; course open to area students 9-18 years old ( Sept. 6, 2013) Synepuxent Post #166 American Legion seeks students 9-18 years old from the Ocean City area for its Junior Shooting Program. This program is for those interested in marksmanship competition, gun safety and Olympicstyle experience are invited to participate in the fall session starting Sept. 18. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a three-part program that combines the Basic Marksmanship Course, Qualification Awards and Air Rifle Competition. Handicapped youth are encouraged to participate. Basic Marksmanship Course is a comprehensive instruction package for the be-

ginning shooter that has little or no marksmanship experience. The course insures understanding by the student and easy use by the instructor. Gun safety and marksmanship fundamentals are taught through a balance mix of short lecture or discussion followed by hands-on activity. The package of instruction and support materials include an instructorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guide with detailed information for the instructor to teach the course; a student handbook, now in its third edition, is a comprehensive reference text for beginning shooters, thoroughly covering the fundamentals of position shooting. Learning Tools include six quizzes and a final exam Qualification Awards: If an effective job is done presenting the BMC, most graduates will want to keep improving their marksmanship skills. The National Rifle Association provides the Marks-

manship Qualification Course for Air Rifle. These courses offer a personal skill development ladder where individual shooters work to achieve established performance standards. For each level of success, a sew-on patch and certificate of achievement are presented. Marksmanship qualification course offer family fun and enjoyment that can last a lifetime. Junior shooters may enroll in these programs upon graduation from the Basic Marksmanship Course. Air Rifle competition is not a sport which gives and advantage to individuals of great size or strength. Physical fitness and stamina are important, but it is mental toughness and self-discipline which determine success. Competitive shooting is also one of the few sports where men and women can compete as equals. It is truly a sport which is open to anyone will-

ing to practice and to test their shooting skills on the firing line. The American Legion Junior Position Air Rifle Tournament is an annual tournament that begins with postal matches to determine state and/or regional champions. The next step is a qualification round (also a postal match) to determine shooters who will earn expense-paid trips to compete in the National Championship. The National Championship is a shoulder-to-shoulder match held during the summer, and is conducted at the Olympic Training Center/USA Shooting Range Facilities in Colorado Springs, Colo. This is the same facility that Olympic shooter train and practice on. For more information or to register for the Sept. 18 class, contact Commander Lee McClaflin at 410-430-2842 or e-mail him at commander166@comcast.net.

Tom and Margaret Krach enjoy the Irish American Club picnic.

Take advantage of activities going on in and around Ocean City SENIOR SLANT

Art exhibit at senior center one of many events offered IRISH KEMP  Contributing Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) Live and learn and keep your mouth shut? Not this scribe. I let my fingers do the walking and talking. It’s all a part of an old age, learning experience. I’ve been asked why I attend these events if bingo ain’t my game. Since when is not liking bingo a crime? Is there a “thou shalt ”not like”, bingo, commandment? Folks, disliking a national pastime can’t compare to not socializing or attending fundraisers. Be happy, don’t worry. Take advantage of the body- and soul-saving fun events that abound around our town. Seek and ye ‘ shall find. Redskin fans are everywhere around our town. Win or lose, BJ ‘s on the Water has hosted Redskin fans for years. BJ’s rocks. Billy and Maddy Carder are outstanding, not only for their Teenage Rust band that has entertained at many a fundraiser, but for their giving of their own personal time and money to make our town “de place to be “for locals over the years. Congratulations also to Bev Furst and her crew for their recent, extremely successful, conquer cancer, fundraiser. So many of the younger locals, such as Stephanie Meehan and her friends, the ever-so-generous Stansel family and the “Poor Girls Open, participants strive keep up this this town’s reputation as shakers and movers when it comes to charitable works. I’d be remiss not to mention former Poor girl participant and dancer in the famous Broadway Rockettes, Rita Villani. Rita volunteered many an hour to teach our group of Ocean City ‘s freshly retired how to tap dance and make the right moves to a score of Broadway show tunes. We performed in all the Springfest and Sunfest shows and in and around Worcester County. I’m sure Rita put in

many a 40-hour week. Rita was also an active member of the Ocean City Fire and Rescue squad. Happy birthday and many happy returns. Thanks, Rita, for all you’ve done to make retiring in OC so wonderful. Speaking of special events, you’ll be sorry if you miss the Art Exhibit at the Ocean City Senior Center 41st and bay on

Monday. Sept. 16, 9 a.m. ‘til? All paintings shown will be by local artists, many of whom took their first steps into the world of art under the guidance of award-winning local artist Jodi Veader. Two very talented gifted women, Rita and Jodi. They were both capable of uprooting the most hidden of talents. You’ll be amazed at how many talented artists we have in our town. New in town and want to be found? What a wonderful opportunity to check out the center and meet new friends. I’m

sure this show will give you a whole new outlook on life as a retiree. Just ask Sarah Gray, Julie Stricker, Bernie and Geri Bowerman, Barbara Giles, Jodi Hoffman, Mary Kirtley, Jim and Helen Geslois or Richard and Pat Cooke, who are probably out celebrating their golden one this month. Congratulations, kids. OC is a cool place to set down roots. AARP meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at the local Elks Lodge, second floor. C U IN OC TODAY.

Decatur Way 5k run to benefit high school’s athletic boosters CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) The Stephen Decatur High School Athletic Boosters will host the Decatur Way 5k on Saturday at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin. Entry costs $25 to participate in the race that will raise funds for the boosters, President of OC Tri-Running Sports Chris Klebe said. His business will help time and manage the event. The goal is to “get the kids more involved in a healthy environment” in the 5k pitting freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors against each other, Klebe said. There is also a parents and supporters division and a teachers division. Trophies will be awarded for first through fourth place. About 65 people, mostly Stephen Decatur students and parents, pre-registered for the 5k, Klebe said, and he expects at least 100 to participate.

The race covers part of the route the high school’s cross country team runs, traveling from the school’s track across campus and back to a finish line on the track. The race was the brainchild of Booster President Kim Holloway, a “big runner,” Klebe said. She began planning the 5k last spring and hopes to make it an annual event, he said. The Decatur Way 5k starts at 9 a.m. at Stephen Decatur High School. Final registration and race packet pickup will take place at the school from 7:54-8:45 a.m. Day-of registration cost is $25 and checks are the best way to pay, Klebe said. Look for the registration table outside if the weather is nice, or for flags indicating the way to registration in case of inclement weather. Stephen Decatur High School is located at 9913 Seahawk Road in Berlin. For more information, visit www.octrirunning.com.

Ramsay joins office

OCEAN CITY TODAY/NANCY POWELL

Good weather for a change, helped boost Labor Day population totals over last year’s by 7 percent.

Labor Day brings boost in tourism to OC Resort sees 4-percent increase in visitors from holiday weekend last year CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) After a slow start to the summer season, Ocean City saw visitors out in force for Labor Day weekend, many business owners agreed. “We had a very strong Labor Day weekend,” owner of de Lazy Lizard Wayne Odachowski said. “We had a very good crowd all weekend long, even yesterday (Monday).” Stormy weather on Sunday drove some vacationers into restaurants and shops, but the weekend’s overall sunny skies boded well for the resort, Communications Manager for the Town of Ocean City Jessica Waters said. According to the city’s Demoflush statistics, which estimate population based on wastewater usage, there were 287,694 people in town over the weekend — almost

4 percent more than the 277,303 in Ocean City during Labor Day weekend 2012. “The restaurants were busy, the hotels were full and people seemed to be having a great time,” Waters said. “I think that this Labor Day went fantastic.” Resort officials and business owners largely attribute the late start of the summer boom to the cold, rainy weather and below-average ocean temperatures that befell May and June. “It was a very slow start to the season thanks to the rain,” Executive Director of the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association Susan Jones said. “There were both restaurants and smaller motels that definitely struggled.” But “things seemed to pick up in July and August for most people,” Jones said. Smith Travel Research, a company that tracks supply and demand data for hotels, backed that claim with a report that surveyed around 30 percent of area hotels, Jones said. In July, hotel occupancy was up a little over 2 percent from 2012, with an average of 78 percent of rooms filled last month in Ocean City. Of the six other East Coast re-

sorts surveyed in the STR report, only Virginia Beach did better at filling its rooms. Ocean City’s average revenue per hotel room remained well above the rates in the other resorts, at an average of $223 in July compared to the second-highest rate of $177 in Virginia Beach. That made for an average revenue of $173 per available room in the resort last month. Those numbers contrast with June, when the resort’s occupancy averaged 69 percent and was down 2 percent from June 2012. A hotel room pulled an average price of $178 that month, for an average revenue of $122 per available room. STR data for August was not available at press time. Demoflush numbers averaged 225,785 people in Ocean City this June as compared to 305,112 in July. Last year, those numbers were 250,146 and 304,470, respectively. The summer rush typically drops off in the third week of August, when families shift into the school year. “We have six weeks to make a living in this town: We have July 4 to the second See AFTER on Page 3C

Gas prices Average retail gasoline prices in Maryland have risen 0.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.55/g on Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,167 gas outlets in Maryland. This compares with the national average that has increased 4.1 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Maryland during the past week, prices yesterday were 22.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 8.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 2.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 18.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “American motorists faced with slightly higher gasoline prices going into Labor Day weekend still had good reason to be happy as they returned home,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Over just the long weekend Americans saved nearly 300 million dollars over what was spent for the four day weekend last year. The national average was close to 20-cents per gallon lower this year…”

Longboard Café’s menu includes fish tacos and burgers CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Sept. 6, 2013) The Longboard Café opened in the new 67th Street TownCenter June 28, but the business has been around much longer, owner Rick Vach said.

He owned the Island Time Café down the street for several years before moving to his new eatery on Coastal Highway, he explained. “Essentially, we relocated and changed the name and changed the menu a little bit,” Vach said. The new options include a “bumped up” gourmet burger section, new paninis and entre salads and a vegetarian sides section that “is doing really, really well,” Vach said. But the most popular dish at the surf-themed cafe is by far the fish tacos. Beer-battered cod with shredded cabbage, pico de gallo, Mexican white sauce, roasted tomato salsa and a lime wedge come wrapped in soft corn or flour tortillas in the café’s signature dish. It keeps with the south of the boarder theme, Vach said. “A lot of the menu influence is from when I lived out west,” in California, he said. “There’s definitely a Mexican influence.” Vach grew up in Ocean City and returned to the resort several years ago. He opened a gourmet market in West Ocean City then moved to 67th Street to open Island Time Café. With a less visible location on the bay, the café was a seasonal business, Vach said. “It wasn’t accessible to the local population.” With his new location on the midtown boardwalk just off Coastal Highway, he plans to keep the Longboard Café open year-round. The new eatery features a “higher end” dinner menu that shifts every night based on the day’s fresh catches and sauces. Some items to keep an eye out for include the grilled lamb chop lollypops and grilled baseball filet bordelaise, Vach said. “The food’s getting really good reviews,” he said. “We’re getting a lot of repeat customers, a lot of referral customers… We’ve had a very good summer.” The café recently added a two-for-one happy hour every day from 5-6 p.m. featuring its signature margaritas and local craft beers from Burley Oak, Evolution and 16 Mile breweries. Vach added a Sunday brunch with a Bloody Mary bar and plans to hold special events such as a comfort food night and burgers and beer night to keep business up in the off season. The Longboard Café opens at 11 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday. The kitchen is open until midnight and the bar stays open later.

After slow start, owners happy to see Labor Day wknd. crowds weekend in August,” said Maddy Carder, owner of BJs on the Water. With a slow start to a short season, Carder was pleased to see the Labor Day crowds last weekend. “Was it a record breaker? No, but it was better than I expected,” she said. “We were lucky the weather wasn’t as bad as they originally said it was going to be.” Carder said business at BJs has been down overall this summer, blaming a difficult economy for the decline. She said she’s noticed more weekend warriors in town recently, as opposed to visitors on weeklong vacations. “What we’re finding is people are not here on a weekly basis,” Carder said. “On Mondays and Tuesdays, business is very light.” The city needs to continue promoting its events to boost business, she said. With a full slate of weekend festivals in September, visitor numbers should stay strong throughout the month. BikeFest runs Sept. 12-15, Sunfest is Sept. 19-21 and the Wine on the Beach festival takes place Sept. 27-28. Family Hotel Manager Mary David of the Lankford Hotel said her business is still busy and the next three weekends are booked solid at the Lankford. Continued from Page 1C

The season has been unstable for the business, though, she said. “It was more like a rollercoaster. There wasn’t a steady pace of business,” David said. Like Carder, she’s seen steady weekend traffic but a drop in weekday bookings. Occupancy at the hotel “was down this year a lot of the time,” she said, “but luckily because we were so busy on the weekends … it kind of evened out the revenue.” David estimated that, on average, the Lankford filled 60 percent of its rooms on weekdays, but 100 percent most weekends. “It was a newer pattern,” she said. “In the end we’re about even with last year.” One tactic the hotel will use next year to boost occupancy is moving to more onlinebased business, something that is becoming increasingly important, Jones said. “The businesses that are really putting themselves out there online are the ones that are coming out on top,” she said. “It’s probably picked up the last few years, and that could be with the correlation with smartphone use.” Odachowski said the Lazy Lizard also plans to be “a little bit more aggressive earlier in the season to get the word out” in summer 2014. “That, and ask Mother Nature for some decent weather and warmer water,” he said.

(Sept. 6, 2013) We all know updated and kitchens and baths help sell homes, but when a major renovation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doable, here are a few ideas for quick pickme-ups that can really help spruce things up on a budget. Paint â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Painting is one of those projects that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to do yourself, but in a pinch, you can. And the payoff is big. By selecting neutral, updated colors, you can really change the appearance of every room in your house â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and give it that fresh, clean look that all buyers really want. Knobs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Both kitchen pulls and doorknobs/hinges can really make a difference in updating the dĂŠcor in a kitchen or throughout your house. Replace those old gold doorknobs with a brushed silver/nickel or distressed bronze. And, for a more polished look, replace the door hinges as well. New kitchen pulls can also really help spruce up older cabinets, just make sure

you choose pulls that fit your existing holes so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to drill new ones. Lighting fixtures â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Another affordable fix is replacing older ceiling fans and lighting fixtures. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the added expense of hiring an electrician, but with fixtures being so affordable, this can really make a difference in the overall impression of a home. De-clutter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One of the biggest ways to make a difference in the way your home will show to prospective buyers, and one that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to cost a dime, is to de-clutter. Start in your kitchen. Make sure there is just the minimum amount of appliances and knick knacks on the counters. Remove all pictures and magnets from your fridge and clean out your cabinets so they seem spacious and organized. Go day by day, room by room, devoting an hour per room, stay focused and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see the benefits! Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTORÂŽ with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin, Md.

Franchot releases FY13 numbers (Sept. 6, 2013) Reiterating his call for caution in the midst of a slow and anemic economic recovery, Comptroller Peter Franchot released the final closeout numbers for Fiscal Year 2013 on Aug. 29. General Fund revenues totaled $14.9 billion in the fiscal year, 0.4 percent or $62.4 million below the official state forecast. The revenue data reflected sustained weakness in wages, salaries and consumer spending. Withholding receipts fell $171.3 million short of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modest estimates, increasing just 2.5 percent versus an estimate of 4 percent growth. Sales and use tax receipts increased by only 0.7 percent from the previous year, a level of growth that failed to keep pace with the rate of inflation for the same period. Given the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questionable nearterm economic outlook, Franchot urged the governor and General Assembly to proceed with caution and fiscal restraint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These revenue figures highlight an economy that remains exceedingly fragile and uncertain, and they remind us that we must proceed on a prudent financial course in the months ahead. With wages failing to keep pace with the cost of living for too many Maryland families, I would strongly

urge my colleagues to resist creating any additional unpredictability for Maryland consumers and small businesses,â&#x20AC;? Comptroller Franchot said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To assure Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayers that their government understands the uncertain fiscal and economic climate we still face, I firmly believe that any fund balance must be saved and not spent.â&#x20AC;? Comptroller Franchot noted several factors that have contributed to the state of Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lethargic revenue performance for the past fiscal year, which began on July 1, 2012 and concluded on June 30, 2013. â&#x20AC;˘Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high unemployment rate which, at 96 percent of the national unemployment rate, is the highest it has been relative to the US rate since the late 1990s â&#x20AC;˘The ongoing consequences of sequestration on a state economy that remains heavily reliant upon federal jobs, spending and business opportunities. â&#x20AC;˘The effects of the retroactive state income tax increase that was enacted during the May 2012 special session of the Maryland General Assembly. â&#x20AC;˘The expiration of the federal payroll tax holiday, which increased the tax burden on the average Maryland worker by nearly $700 annually.
