OC bank job suspect gives up in St. Louis Maberry could be ‘I-55 Bandit’ who hit 10 banks NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

— and had “seen better days,” Fasano Jr. said. The new hotel will be a full-service, three or three-and-a-half star lodge with 101 rooms, from standard rooms to suites and efficiencies outfitted with full kitchens. There will be a gym, laundry facilities, a pool, a 50-seat breakfast buffet and a restaurant run by the hotel —“all the regular amenities,” Fasano Jr. said. The family chose La Quinta as its partner in part because of the franchise’s flexibility on the project. The group modified its standard hotel rooms to include

(Sept. 13, 2013) The teen-ager believed to have robbed Susquehanna Bank in Ocean City in July surrendered to the FBI in St. Louis, Mo., on Wednesday. But Andrew Maberry of O’Fallon, Ill., could be much more than a onetime bank robber. The tall, thin 19-yearold could be the notorious “I-55 Bandit,” who hit at least 10 banks, and attempted to rob two others, since May. Reportedly, Maberry gave himself up to the FBI shortly after the agency launched a massive publicity campaign calling for the public’s help in bringing the bandit to justice. The robber was dubbed the “I-55 Bandit,” because all of the bank robberies in the St. Louis area were along Interstate 55. Maberry is suspected of robbing the 94th Street bank in Ocean City on Wednesday, July 24. According to Maberry’s Facebook page, he grew up in Baltimore. His current profile photo, posted Aug. 16, shows him lying on a towel on a beach, and although the photo could have been taken in Ocean City, the location in not specified. In the Ocean City robbery, police thought he might have parked his vehicle in the area of West Biscayne Drive and Artic Avenue and then walked to the bank. After committing the robbery, the suspect was believed to have re-

Demolition crews began work to clear the Ocean Voyager Motel on 32nd Street Tuesday. The project makes space for a new hotel, set to open under the La Quinta Inn & Suites name early next summer, owner Sal Fasano said.

CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) A project is off the ground, or on it, to raze the Ocean Voyager Motel on the block between 32nd and 33rd streets to make way for a new hotel. Demolition started Tuesday with several wings of the motel flattened by 2

The demolition clears a site for a hotel to be flagged under La Quinta Inn & Suites. “It’s bittersweet because this is the hotel where I grew up working with my father, but now we’re looking forward to new things,” Fasano Jr. said. The family bought the Ocean Voyager in 1998, though the motel dated back to the 1950s or ‘60s, he said. It was a basic economy motel with standard rooms — a few beds, a refrigerator and a television

Robber surrenders in 24 hours after FBI publicity campaign turned to his vehicle and driven to Pacific Avenue. After that, the trail seemed to be lost. The FBI became involved in the case that same day, according to Richard Wolf of the FBI’s Baltimore office. Maberry also is suspected of committing a bank robbery in Essex, two in Bel Air and others in Illinois, Missouri, West Virginia and Tennessee. In each instance, according to the FBI, the suspect showed a note demanding money and implied that he was armed, but he showed no weapon.

The FBI released several still photos from video surveillance cameras on Tuesday. Most of those photos showed the suspect wearing different hats and sunglasses, but in some robberies he wore sunglasses, but no hats and during at least one robbery, he wore neither. One of the photos showed the suspect in Susquehanna Bank. The FBI also used digital billboards in affected cities and affected areas featuring photos of the I-55 robber and asking for the public’s help. The FBI looked into using digital billboards in the Ocean City area, but that

“never worked out,” said Special Agent Richard Wolf of the FBI’s Baltimore office on Thursday. According to published reports, people flooded the FBI with calls and tips identifying Maberry as the robber. He surrendered less than 24 hours after the FBI’s publicity campaign began. The FBI is continuing its investigation to determine if Maberry is linked to additional bank robberies. Following his surrender, Maberry was charged with one count of bank robbery in connection with July 2 robbery in Arnold, Miss. He was arraigned

Wednesday afternoon at the federal courthouse in St. Louis. People who knew him were shocked. “Drew was an amazing guy, funny, giving, caring … no one would have ever thought he would do something like this,” said Ashley Olinde, who was a classmate at O’Fallon Township High School, where Maberry graduated last year. She said they were “great friends.” “He was always a giver and never looked like he had an issue with money. We were all shocked, I think I was the most shocked in the fact that he was such a giver and was so caring that he would do something so wrong,” Olinde said. “I think he started doing it just for the thrill of it or because he got bored. I’ve known him for about five years. He’s a great kid just didn’t use his head.” Maberry is expected to be charged for the Ocean City bank robbery and that trial is likely to be heard in federal court rather than Circuit Court in Snow Hill. “They’ll look at things to see if they might get a harsher sentence if it goes to the state side,” Wolf said. “But normally the federal charges would come into play.” According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday, Maberry was visiting his mother in Maryland during the robberies in this state.

In all, the new hotel will be worth an estimated $16 million.

SHA will place two message signs on Route 589 and two on Route 113 notifying traffic of the planned closure.

Correctly used, child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent and are the most effective way to protect children in car accidents. However, children are often not properly buckled into their safety seats or parents don’t realize a booster seat is important in ensuring that children fit in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Crime numbers continue decline, but weapons spike sustains Major offenses down 12.7 percent year-to-date, calls for Aug. drop 2.8 percent ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) Resort crime numbers for August continue to show a decrease in police activity and demand for service, with a few upward trends in certain areas that the Ocean City Police Department says it will investigate as the season winds to a close. Service calls for August were up 1.8 percent over August of 2012, with 12,383 calls versus 12,757 last year, according to OCPD numbers released at this week’s Police Commission meeting. However, if routine operations, such as traffic stops and business assistance requests, are pulled from the statistics, service calls actually drop to 8,400 versus 8,644 last August, a 2.8 percent decrease. “I think these indicators are pretty positive for us as we move past August into the off-season,” OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro said. Officer-initiated service, not prompted by citizen complaints, increased 3.1 percent if routine activity was included, but decreased 3.4 percent when eliminated. “It shows a continuing downward

Most weapons found following other offenses Levy said. “We support everyone’s Second Amendment rights, but until there’s a court ruling saying that one state must honor another’s permit, we’re not going to have a whole lot of flexibility on that.” Unless the individual has a valid state permit for concealed carry, Maryland requires all firearms in vehicles to be in a locked container, with the ammunition stored separately from the gun. “We don’t feel the need for a firearm other than for sporting purposes… in Ocean City,” Levy said. “It’s a very safe area. If you’re legally allowed to carry a firearm, you’re not going to have any issues. Otherwise, all you’re doing is asking for trouble.” According to the department’s most recent reports, four handgun seizures were made between Aug. 23 and 31. In two instances, 9 mm pistols were seen

Guns, in particular, are often associated with drugs and other criminal activity, but Levy said only four of the 24 gun offenses so far this year resulted from drug searches. In many instances, officers will find unsecured firearms in plain view during traffic stops, a scenario that police and offenders often find baffling. Many visitors seem to think that permits from another state give them the right to have concealed firearms on their person or vehicle in Maryland. “I don’t know if they’re unaware that it’s not reciprocal, or if they’re just disregarding the law and believe it’s their right,”

In another instance, a .40-caliber Glock was seized after an officer approached suspects who appeared to be engaged in drug activity near the Route 50 bridge. In the fourth instance, a .357 revolver was taken from a subject seen smoking marijuana. “Are these guns indicative of criminal activity, or are they just unaware people?” Levy asked. “Our incidents are probably predicated on several factors that we’ll have to sit down and put together in the next month or so.” Officers also drew their Tasers ten times in August, according to the report, although they were only fired in three incidents. “The obvious connection in these incidents is alcohol use by the suspects,” Buzzuro said.

Suspect says cache of weapons in car ‘part of my training’ NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) Ocean City police arrested two men Sept. 5 after finding a handgun and other weapons in a vehicle. An officer conducted a traffic stop near Third Street and Philadelphia Avenue at about 2 p.m. because the driver was not wearing a seatbelt. As the officer approached the Honda Accord, he saw several items in the hatch area. Those items included spent shotgun shell cartridges and used shooting targets. Additional spent shotgun shell cartridges were behind the driver’s seat. A large, 9-inch folding knife was attached to the pocket of the driver, Charles Michael Reynolds, 22, of Bristow, Va., and the smell of burnt marijuana was emanating from inside the vehicle. According to the charging document, Reynolds told the officer that a loaded semi-automatic .45-caliber handgun was in the vehicle and he did not have a handgun permit in the state of Maryland. At the direction of the officer, Reynolds and his passenger, Ryan Zachary Pritchard, 21, also of Bristow, exited the vehicle and sat on the curb. During a search of the Honda, the officer located a .45-caliber Remington 1911 semi-automatic handgun in a pocket of a black tactical bag that had been within arm’s reach and easily accessible to both Reynolds and Pritchard. The handgun was in a black leather shoulder holster, which also contained two eight-round loaded magazines. Also in the bag were a large 9-inch fixed blade Ka-bar knife. Another knife, a 10-inch-long, fixedblade steel M Tech buoy knife was wedged between the center console area and the front passenger seat of the Honda. A metal throwing tomahawk, a fighting ax, was on the rear seat behind the front passenger seat beneath a book bag belonging to Pritchard. Like the tactical bag, the tomahawk was within arm’s reach and easily accessible to both men. According to the charging document, the officer asked Reynolds whey he had so many weapons and Reynolds said, “It’s part of my training.” Police charged Reynolds with two counts of possession of a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a handgun on his person, possession of a handgun in a vehicle and possession of a martial arts weapon. The District Court commissioner found no probable cause for the martial arts weapon charge. Pritchard was charged with two counts of possession of a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a handgun on his person, possession of a handgun in a vehicle and possession of a martial arts weapon. The District Court commissioner found probable cause for only one count of having a concealed deadly weapon.

Burglary at Ocean Voyager Two men were arrested Sept. 3 after they were seen leaving a room in a vacant motel at about 8 p.m. Patrick Michael Herrmann, 25, of Lutherville, and Jonathan McGovern Boeri, 18, of Phoenix, broke into at least six rooms at the Ocean Voyager, according to Ocean City police. They reportedly stole a few items valued at approximately $35. The motel, at 3201 Baltimore Ave., was vacant because it was slated to be demolished. That demolition took place earlier this week. Police charged Herrmann with second-degree burglary. They charged Boeri with second- and fourth-degree burglary.

Heroin charges Two Virginia residents were arrested on heroin charges Tuesday after Ocean City police found the drug in their vehicle, which had been stopped near 85th Street and Coastal Highway because of a traffic violation. As the officer walked to the vehicle, he smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from it. During a search of the vehicle, police located six packages of heroin and numerous drug paraphernalia items, including items typically used for packaging and distributing drugs, ac-

cording to the police department. They also located approximately 10 assorted prescription pills. The driver, Hannah Knoll Norris, 24, of Fairfax, and the passenger, Scott Edward Kahler, 25, of Falls Church, were charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute it, removing the label on a prescription drug, transporting heroin into Maryland and six counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Concealed weapon A 46-year-old Leesport, Pa., man was charged Sept. 6 with having a concealed dangerous weapon after Ocean City police found a pair of metal knuckles in his pants pocket. That discovery came after an undercover officer saw the man, later identified as Raymond Lee Bickley, allegedly smoking marijuana outside a downtown restaurant at about 5 p.m. The officer also saw Bickley allegedly hand the smoking pipe to another man.

OCPD retires horse,‘Goodnight’ NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer

PHOTO COURTESY OCPD

Pfc. Al Custer rides “Goodnight” on the beach. The Ocean City Police Department retired the horse last month.

(Sept. 13, 2013) A veteran of the Ocean City Police Department Mounted Unit was officially retired in late August after serving about three-and-a-half years. The horse, “Goodnight,” joined the department at age 7 in early 2010 and was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2011. Although he underwent treatment, the effects of the disease left him with a diminished capacity to fulfill his police duties. Because of that, the police department decided to retire him. During Goodnight’s service in the resort, he had one primary rider, Pfc. Al Custer. With Custer in the saddle, Goodnight was involved in numerous arrests, several hundred actions and special duties

Mason jars for drugs Ocean City police found a mason jar filled with marijuana during a search of a book bag in a Wicomico Street apartment on Sept. 7. Police had been dispatched to the apartment because a caller said people were smoking marijuana there. When a man opened the door, police were “overcome with the strong odor of burnt marijuana,” according to the charging document. The man, John Alexander Rizk, 21, of Ijamsville, was reportedly pale white and shaking. Police found 16 bags of marijuana weighing 1.2 pounds. They also found a digital scale, five empty mason jars and a box of small plastic bags. They charged Rizk with possession of 10 grams or more of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana with a sufficient amount to distribute it.

Alleged assault An intoxicated man with a temper was charged Sept. 6 with second-degree assault and malicious destruction of

such as working during car cruises, Delmarva Bike Week, Winterfest of Lights and annual parades and festivals in the resort. Goodnight and Custer also assisted other law enforcement agencies such as the Pocomoke City Police Department, Maryland State Police, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office with crowd control and during search and rescue missions. He also served as the lead horse to train new police horses and new mounted officers. Goodnight will spend his retirement on a farm in Western Maryland where, according to the police department, he is in good health and spirits and is enjoying the company of his new family. The department is searching for a horse to replace Goodnight. property after he allegedly assaulted a woman in a 16th Street unit. Ocean City police went to the scene after a call about a domestic assault in progress. The caller could hear the sound of someone being thrown into a wall. When police arrived at the unit, they saw objects thrown around the room, trash on the floor and the refrigerator moved away from the wall. A woman said she left the room to walk with a family friend outside and when she returned, George Franklin Piper, 56, of Bradenville, Pa., started throwing her into walls. It was his common behavior when he drinks alcohol, she reportedly told police. The woman also told police that he only threw her against objects and did not strike her with anything. He also reportedly threw her cell phone, causing it to break.

Assault outside club Ocean City police charged Steven Jack Storrie, 24, of Spring Grove, Pa., with second-degree assault after seeing him shove a man to the ground outside a mid-town nightspot on Sept. 8, according to the charging document. Police had gone to the site because it was closing time.

Woman accused of theft admits selling PCP to buy baby formula Suspect with naked child caught rifling through victim’s purse at inlet lot NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) A Bike Fest participant who was walking back to her vehicle and trailer in the inlet lot Saturday saw a woman who had her hand in the purse she had left behind. In her other arm, the woman was holding a naked baby. She knew she had left approximately $1,500 in cash inside the purse, which was inside the trailer. She tried to stop the woman, later identified as Stephanie Lynn Stancil, 30, of Baltimore, and her companion, Gary Ray McGinniss, 44, also of Baltimore. Stancil refused to stop, but she left the purse by the trailer before she started walking away at a fast pace. McGinnis remained behind and the victim called police. She also searched through her purse and noticed that her cash was missing. A police officer stopped Stancil and another officer asked her about the money. “What money?” Stancil asked, according to the charging document. Nevertheless, she consented to a search of her purse by police, who found three vials containing Phencyclidine,

commonly called PCP, and three cell phones, according to that document. Because cell phones are often used by drug dealers to arrange for drug transactions, a police officer searched Stancil’s text messages and saw numerous messages indicating that she was selling PCP to contacts she had in her phone. Another officer spoke with McGinnis, whose right hand was clenched tightly. When ordered to open his hand, McGinnis complied and police recovered $355. After being read his Miranda rights, McGinnis said he understood and agreed to speak with a policeman. He said neither he nor Stancil had stolen anything. McGinnis gave written consent for a search of his vehicle, a 2005 Nissan Sentra. During that search, police found four individually packaged small plastic bags containing marijuana.

Police interviewed Stancil at their headquarters in the Public Safety Building. There, she told police that she sold PCP just to get by. She also said she sold it to make money to buy formula for her baby daughter. She also said she takes PCP to calm her nerves and that she had ingested it that day. Police were concerned that she had been carrying her naked baby through the inlet parking lot while under the influence of PCP. They also knew that she had no clothing, except for one diaper, for the baby in her belongings or in the stroller, which was dirty and full of sand and dirty adult clothing. She also had only a very minimal amount of food for the baby. Because Stancil was not taking care of her baby properly and because she was unable to take care of her baby properly, police contacted Worcester County Social

(Sept. 13, 2013) A 36-year-old Newark man was arrested Monday after law enforcement officers found evidence of distribution of child pornography. Members of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit and the Worcester County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office executed a search and seizure warrant at a Newark residence. The search warrant was obtained after several months of investigation that revealed that someone in that residence was sharing and downloading pictures and videos of child pornography. Inside the residence, police found numerous items containing hundreds of images and videos of child pornography. An interview of the residents revealed that Jason Gregory Root was responsible for sharing and downloading images. Root was charged with six counts of promoting and distributing child pornography and five counts of possession of child pornography. Root was taken before the District Court commissioner and then released on a $10,000 unsecured bond.

Armed carjacker goes to prison for lengthy term Ewell seized vehicle of 69-year-old Walmart employee at gunpoint NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) A Virginia man was sentenced to 10 years and six months in prison last Friday. That time had been suspended from his original 12-year sentence for an armed carjacking in 2011. Since leaving jail after serving a portion of the original sentence, the carjacker, Troy Anthony Ewell, was on five years of supervised probation and was found guilty Aug. 2 of violating that probation.

Judge Thomas C. Groton III deferred sentencing until last Friday. Then he terminated Ewell’s probation and re-imposed the 10-year, six-month sentence. On March 28, 2011, Ewell, then 18, and Preston Lee Strand Jr., 17, both of New Church, got a ride to Pocomoke City to visit their girlfriends. They did not have a ride back home. While they were sitting at a bus stop after visiting their girlfriends, a man drove up in his car, got out and walked toward Walmart. The teens went to the car, which had been left unlocked, and got inside to keep warm. After a few minutes, a 69-year-old woman drove into the employee parking lot and parked her 2006 Chevrolet Malibu at about 5 a.m. They walked over to her car as she was getting out.

Strand later told police that he really did not want to do what he was doing because he was thinking that “this could be happening to my grand mom,” according to the charging document. Nevertheless, Strand told her to give him the keys. The woman did not hand over her hands, however, until Ewell pointed his gun at her. After getting the car keys, they went home to Virginia. The victim told police that she had arrived at work at about 5 a.m., just as she had done for the past 14 years. Two men startled her and one demanded her pocketbook and car keys. He grabbed for her pocketbook, but she held onto it and threw the keys at the man. Ewell turned himself in to police two days later. Strand was soon behind bars in Accomack County, Va., on charges stemming from another incident. Strand confessed to the armed robbery and pleaded guilty Nov. 2, 2012, in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. Like Ewell, Strand was sentenced to 12 years in prison, with all but 18 months suspended. Both men were charged with numerous offenses including armed robbery, assault and carjacking. Ewell was also charged for his alleged use of a handgun during the carjacking.

Former OC taxi driver faces 5 years for child porn rap NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) A former Ocean City taxi driver faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court last week to one count of receiving obscene material. Laurence John Bode, 61, was arrested in December 2011, following an investigation by Department of Homeland Security officers, who told Ocean City police they believed Bode was distributing child pornography via the Internet. A Worcester County grand jury had indicted Bode, the owner of Casino Express Taxi, with two counts of distributing child pornography, two counts of distributing obscene matter and 21 counts of possession of child pornography. His trial, which had been scheduled for March 2012, was postponed and then cancelled because a Maryland grand jury indicted him on child pornography charges in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Two charges were for distribution of child pornography, two were for knowingly receiving child pornography and one was for possession child pornography during a two-year period.

Delmarva Power to increase delivery rates for Md. customers (Sept. 13, 2013) The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) has authorized Delmarva Power to increase delivery rates for its Maryland customers, effective for electric service rendered on and after Sept. 15. The change will add 3.6 percent to monthly residential bills. A typical bill for a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month would increase by approximately $5.09, moving the average monthly bill from $140.22 to $145.31, or approximately 16 cents more per day. The bill impact on commercial and in-

dustrial customers would vary according to usage. The approval of the $14.98 million revenue increase is less than the company’s request for $22.57 million. “While we believe the entire amount of our rate increase request was fully reasonable, the PSC’s decision reflects an effort to balance our need for additional revenues to maintain the reliability of our electric system while having a fairly modest effect on our customers,” said Delmarva Power Region President Gary Stockbridge. The PSC also approved a Grid Resiliency Charge of $0.03 cents per month

Volunteers to clean up beaches and bays during annual event Coastal Cleanups set for Sept. 21 at Assateague, Sept. 28 in Ocean City CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

COASTAL CLEANUP

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN

Delmarva Power’s Matt Likovich holds up the 2013 Coastal Cleanup T-shirt design during the kickoff event in Ocean City Sept 4. Volunteers will get a free T-shirt for participating in the trash pick-up, while supplies last.

(Sept. 13, 2013) What do a Hula Hoop, car parts and a set of dentures have in common? According to Coastal Cleanup volunteers, these are all items found in trash collected on Delaware and Maryland’s beaches and bays during the annual Coastal Cleanup. The 2013 event began this month, with

trash pick-ups slated for around 50 sites in Delaware and nine Maryland locations, including Assateague and Ocean City. “It’s a community event. It’s an opportunity for people to get together,” said Matt Likovich of Delmarva Power, the event’s main sponsor. Last year, approximately 2,100 volunteers collected around 18,000 pounds of trash, about half of which was recycled, Likovich said. While that’s “a significant amount of waste removed from the bays and rivers,” it’s down from around 60,000 pounds of trash collected a decade ago, thanks to increased public awareness, he said. “People are getting the message that it See CLEANUP on Page 19A

Cleanup draws more than 100 volunteers in Maryland annually pays to be environmentally conscious,” Likovich said. That goes for personal pleasure as well as economic reasons in a resort town that relies on its beaches to draw tourists. The Coastal Cleanup initiative began with Delaware’s Get the Drift and Bag It program 27 years ago. Four years later, it spread to other areas through new sponsor Delmarva Power. “We initially focused on our ocean beaches,” Delaware Department of Natural Resources Deputy Secretary Dave Small said. But eventually, those areas were saturated with volunteers, “so we started expanding.” The cleanup draws around 2,000 volunteers in Delaware and more than 100 in Maryland annually, he said. Some years, up to 300 volunteers have come to the Assateague cleanup, a favorite among veterans because off-road National Park Service vehicles carry them to remote sections of the beach. “You never knew what we’re going to find,” Assateague Coastal Trust’s Matt Heim said. That includes parts of a Volkswagen Beetle that have turned up over the past few years. New this year, Assateague Coastkeeper Kathy Phillips will lead a flotilla of volunContinued from Page 18A

teers with canoes and kayaks to pick up waste in the marshes around Old Ferry Landing. Participants must provide their own kayaks, canoes or paddle boards. Registration for the Assateague National Seashore Coastal Cleanup starts at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 in the North Beach parking lot of the national park. Call Jim Rapp of the Assateague Coastal Trust at 443-614-0261 for information on the Assateague cleanup. The Ocean City Coastal Cleanup starts at 10 a.m. the next Saturday, Sept. 28, at Town Hall on Third Street. Registration includes a commemorative T-shirt, bags, gloves and an assignment, although those with a preferred cleanup area can tell coordinators. There might be prizes for the “most unique” trash collected, coordinator Gail Blazer said. Blazer is the environmental engineer for the Town of Ocean City. After the cleanup, volunteers will meet at Buxy’s Salty Dog Saloon on 28th Street to celebrate National Estuary Day, raising their glasses for a symbolic “Toast to the Coast.” All 28 U.S. estuary programs will participate in the toast. Register for the Ocean City cleanup by e-mailing sandis@mdcoastalbays.org or call 410-213-2297, ext. 107. Or, show up at City Hall the day of the event.

Irish Outreach volunteers, from left, Julia Stricker, Betty Duff, Mary Lynch and Jerry Callahan attend the organization’s end-of-season luncheon Tuesday at the Clarion on 101st Street.

OC Irish Outreach volunteers thanked after successful season ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) While the ambiance might be a bit off, a trip to Ocean City’s Irish Outreach Center is just as good as a voyage to the Emerald Isle itself, at least in regards to the most important part – the people. That seemed to be the consensus among the center’s volunteer staff, who gathered this week at the Clarion for an end-of-season luncheon, and all of whom spoke highly of the students who used their services this summer. “The best part of doing this by far is meeting the kids,” said volunteer Jo Alexander. “I was very impressed with

how grateful they are. Nothing is for granted. They thank you profusely.” “The most important part was for them to know that they had a resource and an ally,” agreed fellow volunteer Bernie Busby. “This group has become the model for other groups like it.” Indeed, the resort’s Irish Outreach has become successful beyond even the expectations of organization leaders Rick and Pat Fairbend, who began their effort in 2011 to provide assistance to the myriad Irish student workers who arrive in the resort each year. “Two years ago, when we were doing this out of the backs of our cars, we wouldn’t have imagined that we’d get so See PROGRAM on Page 22A

For the past two years, however, Irish Outreach has had a physical location â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first on 17th Street, and this year on 33rd â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for students to gather and to store supplies.

Most importantly, however, the Irish Outreach center serves as a proxy home for many of the students, where they can simply go for security and fellowship during their often hectic schedules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten some emails now from the parents, back in Ireland, saying that their child really felt that this was their home away from home,â&#x20AC;?

Irish students in the resort are said to number between 600 and 700 annually for the past three seasons, a considerable increase over years previous due to the State Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasing restriction on some of the Eastern European countries, which used to supply most of the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s labor. Russian students were estimated prior to 2010 at almost 1,500 per year, but have since been cut back by nearly 75 percent.

City still has time to alter OCBP project after proposals received ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) With an architect to be selected soon, the city will likely be making some tough decisions in the upcoming weeks about the final scope of the new Ocean City Beach Patrol headquarters building. Tuesday was the deadline for bids on the project’s design work. Price was only 25 percent of the rubric to be used in judging the bidders, with previous work history and other qualifications receiving weight as well. If all goes well, the selected architect will likely nail down the project’s scope by October, with final documents ready for construction by early spring. “What we’ll try to do is have a conceptual design of the space program ready by the end of October so that we’re ready for the bond market,” City Engineer Terry McGean said. “Full construction documents would probably take us sometime into February or March.” The city is slated to issue a capital improvement bond to borrow money for the work. Bonds are typically sold at the end of the calendar year, given the more favorable interest rates. “The question then will be if we want

to start work in the summer or wait until the off-season,” McGean said. The project’s current space program, the allocation of rooms and square footage, calls for a 10,620-square-foot facility with an estimated value of $2 million. However, the city’s leadership is interested in reducing the scope of the project, given its almost entirely seasonal use and the overall size of the city’s upcoming bond issuance, of which the beach patrol’s cost is just part of a projected $12 million in new borrowing. “The $2 million budget is the maximum for the bidders,” McGean said. “There’s still room to go lower.” Bids for the project were initially set to to be received two weeks ago, but the request for proposals was suspended indefinitely last month given uncertainties about the project’s location and the corresponding land-swap deal with the Ocean City Development Corporation, the city-sponsored non-profit that facilitates downtown revitalization. By the council’s final August meeting, however, a deal had been reached between the city and the OCDC to finalize the exchange, in which the town receives the OCDC’s lot on Talbot Street for a new See ARCHITECT on Page 24A

(Sept. 13, 2013) Although Ocean City officials still have interest in dispersing the concentration of taxi cabs that have amassed on 64th Street, City Solicitor Guy Ayres advised the Police Commission this week that the effort will likely never be clean-cut. “So the big answer is that there is no simple answer,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “The practicality of this business is that they don’t have your typical office,” Ayres said. “So to meet a requirement for on-premise parking, they’re going to first have to have a premise. It’s going to be a costly venture that gets passed on to the customer.” Last month, the commission had been approached by Dead Freddies restaurant owner Steve Carullo regarding the use of 64th Street as a de-facto staging area. 64th Street borders Carullo’s restaurant to the north and runs out alongside the bay inlet that Dead Freddies’ dining area overlooks. While by no means an official location, drivers from multiple cab companies use the street as an exchange point for shifts. Drivers will park their personal vehicles on the street and get in a cab vacated by the driver from a previous shift, who then drives his own personal vehicle home. Not only is 64th a central location in

the resort, cabbies say, but it also has virtually no through-traffic and an abundance of perpendicular parking spaces. However, Carullo previously described the situation as an “eyesore” that would’ve discouraged him from establishing his restaurant had he anticipated the proliferation of cabs. “The direct response … is that it’s a public street,” Ayres said this week. “He [Carullo] has no claim on that parking.” Meehan had previously suggested that the city’s cab ordinance be amended to require medallion-holding cabs to have designated parking in the same way that the city’s zoning code requires business establishments to have a certain amount of parking depending on the use of their facility. This would require cabbies to have a physical business location, however, which most do not. “Real estate is expensive, whether they would be in town or out in the county,” Ayres said. “You’d be legislating them to secure property they wouldn’t otherwise need. In the end, what would you be doing other than putting them out of business?” “We’re not looking to make that a requirement,” Meehan said in response to Ayres’ prediction. “I’m just asking if there’s any way to alleviate the number of cabs on the street.” A legal argument for restricting where cabs can park when not in service would be difficult to establish, Ayres said, given that other unused commercial vehicles can park as they please. “How can John the plumber’s truck be parking on the street not in service?” See CAB on Page 25A

Architect will re-examine space allocation before bond issuance OCBP building, in exchange for OCDC receiving the old OCBP building and lot as a future development site for what is commonly called the “model block” initiative. The OCDC will also pay for 35 percent of the construction costs for the new OCBP building, citing its interest in keeping beach patrol facilities and employees downtown as a base for further business development. The current OCBP building was used as the city’s primary police station until 1993, when the Public Safety Building was built and the Ocean City Police Department abandoned the facility. Since the OCBP moved in, the building has continued to deteriorate and is wracked with mold, asbestos peeling and structural damage. The preliminary allocation of space in McGean’s initial design for the new

structure incorporates a number of purpose-built elements that have been unavailable in the current re-purposed facility. The Junior Beach Patrol program is allotted 250 square feet of separate office and storage space in the new layout. Offices and storage for instructors is allotted another 500 square feet. Five offices for lieutenants, as well as a captain’s office, occupy 1,250 square feet all together. An 800-square-foot multipurpose room, as well as a 300-squarefoot, 25-seat classroom are also featured. “The first thing we’ll do when we get the architect on board is to sit down with the users and go through this schedule,” McGean said. “We’ll say ‘These are the rooms you told us you needed, at the sizes you needed. Do you really need this many square feet for offices, this many for storage, etc.?’” “We’ll basically go through this roomby-room,” he said.

Cab companies may rent space voluntarily if city offers parking Ayres said. “You would leave yourself open to accusations of a double standard.” However, Council President Lloyd Martin said he had spoken with a cab company that was willing to voluntarily move its vehicles if the city would be willing to sell them reserved spaces in the lot at the nearby Public Safety Building. “They’re trying to help alleviate the problem by offering to pay for a spot,” Martin said. If the city was able to offer cabbies designated parking at a reasonable price, they would like to solve the problem without legislation, Martin said. The city began regulating the taxi industry in 2010, initially selling 170 medallions, which grant the bearer the right to solicit as a for-hire vehicle within the Town of Ocean City, for $1,500 each. Additionally, the town gets a 25 percent cut of the sale price every time a medallion changes hands. Cabbies are free to openly trade their medallions, although the market price of a limited supply has naturally risen above the initial 2010 sale price. Further, the city’s also has a set minimum transfer fee of $500, meaning that cabbies will essentially have to pay a higher tax rate if they sell their medallions for less than $2,000. The city has

previously discussed increasing the minimum in order to raise the margin floor on transfers and raise the sale prices even higher.

City coffers boosted $827k by unanticipated FY ‘13 revenues Town closes out budget year with less of a dent to reserve than expected ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) City Hall might be rethinking charging waterfront property owners an extra fee for possible canal dredging work, although the $827,000 savings the city will be carrying over from last year’s budget could go towards any number of projects. The city budget for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, which ended June 30, originally anticipated a $3.8 million dip into the town’s standing unrestricted reserves. But in closing out the books for the recently finished cycle, town Budget Manager Jennie Knapp said that number would cut below $3 million, giving an $827,000 boost to the 2013-2014 fund. “We were able to take less money out of fund balance than anticipated due to some unanticipated revenues,” Knapp said. Chief among these was almost $1 million in additional room tax, which is collected from hotel and condo rental

transactions. Part of this tax must, by state law, go toward the city’s destination marketing and tourism promotion efforts, but the rest is unrestricted in use. The town also realized over $1 million in additional grants from state and federal agencies, although much of this funding also went to specific initiatives and did not roll over in to the city’s general budget. Some losses occured, notably $85,000 less than anticipated in inlet lot revenue and $40,000 less than anticipated in revenue from other parking lots. Street parking performed as anticipated. Lot revenue for the beginning of the current fiscal year, the lucrative months of July and August, has recovered, Knapp said. “This year, we are doing better,” she said. “It looks like it was just the spring that was down.” Room tax for July was also up 5.11 percent to over $3.7 million, putting the city in a good starting position for the $13 million in total room tax revenues it has projected for 2013-2014. By design, the city maintains a cash reserve, referred to as “fund balance,” to cover its operating costs throughout the year in times when expenses are inSee SURPLUS on Page 28A

Surplus could be used for canal dredging, other capital projects curred before revenues are realized, allowing the real-time operation of the fiscal year’s budget. The ratio of fund balance to anticipated annual operating costs is often used by City Hall as a measure of the city’s financial health. In the spring, the council voted to establish a self-enforced policy of budgeting a year-end fund balance value at no less than 15 percent of the year’s general expenses. The city’s 2013-2014 budget, approved in April, is already designed to maintain a 15 percent fund balance ratio, meaning the $827,000 surplus from last year will provide a headroom that could be spent freely, without compromising the city’s self-enforced policy. One possible use would be canal dredging, the effort to remove silt and acContinued from Page 26A

cumulated debris from the resort’s bayside waterways. Discussed in the past, the council originally proposed funding canal dredging with a fee levied on those whose property abuts the canals. “Some of the lagoons on the south end of town are getting pretty severe, and they’re going to start affecting property values on some of these folks,” said Councilman Dennis Dare, who motioned that city staff put together a projection of which canals would be ready to dredge in the shortest timeline. Council supported the idea unanimously. Dare also said, as he has before, that the city should abandon the idea of charging waterfront property owners and pay out of its general revenues. Although they receive the most benefit from the canals, such owners already pay

higher taxes because of their higher waterfront property values, he said. Further, the city’s bayside waterways are a public amenity, much like beach, which all properties benefit from. When beach replenishment was implemented, the town decided against charging oceanfront properties a fee to subsidize the effort, Dare said. “The public does have the right to use the canals, and exercises it,” he said. Councilwoman Margaret Pillas said she had received feedback from residents who contended that, while anyone can use the beach, only those with boats and boat access can truly utilize the canals, making them less of a public amenity than the beach precedent. “If we’re not going to go forward with [the dredging fees], I need to be sure that people know we’re not going to discuss it any further,” Pillas said. However, Dare said, the city’s stormwater drains feed into the bay. “Everybody’s stormwater drains into these canals, along with sand and debris and mulch and everything,” Dare said. “That adds to the need to dredge them and degrades not just the canal water quality but the whole bay. There is a benefit to everyone, even if you never boat in the canals.” “I think it’s a good point that we all do use the canals for the dumping of stormwater,” Pillas said. “If that’s the ra-

tionale, we need to communicate that to the public.” But City Manager David Recor cautioned that dredging, while the topic du jour, was not the only possible use staff would bring forward for the $827,000 surplus. “Our thought was that we would have a comprehensive discussion about our unfunded needs,” Recor said. “We’re just shy of our $2 million policy for street paving, and there’s been some discussion about the roof projects being pay as you go instead of bonding them out.” The city has set a goal of providing $2 million in street paving work each year, to catch up on the estimated $40 million of road repairs that need to be done in the resort. This year’s allocation is just over $1.4 million. The council originally budgeted the roof replacements at the Public Safety Building and the city’s maintenance garage to be paid outright, but decided to borrow money for them instead due to increasing operating expenses earlier this year. A bond sale for all of the city’s capital projects is slated for the end of this calendar year, with a combined value of around $12 million. “The point is that there is any number of other issues or uses,” Recor said. “I’d like to encourage you to look at the bigger picture.”

Start-ups, entrepreneurs participate in statewide competition Finalists will be invited to present pitches to firms and investors in Nov. SHEILA R. CHERRY  Associate Editor/Bayside Gazette (Sept. 13, 2013) The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pitch Across America 2.0â&#x20AC;? campaign stopped at the Ocean City arch Sept. 9 to hear from Eastern Shore entrepreneurs, hopefully helping them attract the resources needed to back their ideas. Worcester County Economic Development Director Bill Badger hosted the tour, which seeks out promising new business ideas, at the Ocean City stop. Worcester County Commissioners President Bud Church and Ocean City Council Secretary Mary Knight also greeted the organizers. Sen. Jim Mathias (D-38), former Ocean City mayor, called the business owners young, bright entrepreneurs and said the objective of the campaign was to show that Maryland is the right

place to do business. Most of the entrepreneurs who participated were seeking capital resources to expand beyond start-up. They included: â&#x20AC;˘Eric J. Belardo, president and CEO of Digital Youth Experience in West Ocean City: The company bills itself as a regional technology training and mentoring center on Delmarva, with classes in 3-D modeling and printing and android application development. Belardo said he was hoping to stem the â&#x20AC;&#x153;brain drainâ&#x20AC;? of talented young people leaving the Eastern Shore to pursue careers outside the area by creating high-tech development jobs here. â&#x20AC;˘Austin Widdowson, owner of Refresh Media, a multimedia production company in downtown Berlin: The new company will create film-oriented digital commercials, videos and television segments. Widdowson also wants to keep aspiring talent on the Eastern Shore by providing opportunities for individuals to shine in the media industry. â&#x20AC;˘Wyatt Harrison, owner of Plak

He wanted to expand the current business so he can offer a larger range of printing services, including for buildings and outdoor signage. â&#x20AC;˘Steven Bolgiano, executive director of Planet Found Energy Development: Bolgiano described the new company as a local, grassroots-based and privately funded initiative that provides solutions for agricultural waste management for the poultry industry. â&#x20AC;˘Shaneka Nichols, owner of Stages Early Childhood Learning Center on Old Ocean City Boulevard in Berlin: Nichols said the center provided daycare and pre-school services for chil-

dren six weeks 12 years old. She wanted to expand her business, which also tries to provides age appropriate learning opportunities. The entrepreneurs who participated gave brief videotaped presentations to be produced for their individual marketing use and entered two competitions, one to choose a statewide â&#x20AC;&#x153;fan favoriteâ&#x20AC;? from entries collected on the 25-stop tour and the other to be chosen as one of eight finalists whose videos will be featured as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Candidates for Venture Investment.â&#x20AC;? Those eight will be invited to present their pitches again before a group of investors and investment capital firms in November.

Delmarva Power urges to be prepared for hurricane season Assemble emergency kits with batteries, flashlights, water and other items (Sept. 13, 2013) Delmarva Power reminds customers that this is still hurricane season and to be prepared in the event severe weather affects our region. Hurricane season officially began June 1 and lasts until Nov. 30. September is National Preparedness Month. “We are approaching the height of hurricane season and over the past few years storms such as Hurricanes Sandy and Irene have reminded us just how important it is to prepare your household or business for an emergency. In recognition of National Preparedness Month, Delmarva Power is encouraging all of its customers to proactively prepare for all emergencies by assembling a storm kit, making a plan and staying informed,” said Region President of Delmarva Power Gary Stockbridge. “Delmarva

Power is prepared for what is predicted to still be a very active hurricane season.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook forecasts the likelihood of 13 to 19 named storms, including six to nine hurricanes with winds topping 74 mph. Three to five storms could reach major hurricane status with sustained winds of 111 mph or more. Delmarva Power suggests assembling an emergency storm kit containing: •Flashlights and fresh batteries •Battery-powered radio or television and extra batteries •Land-line phone with cord (cordless phones require electricity) •Battery-powered, windup alarm clock •Supply of bottled water (one gallon •per person per day) •Non-perishable foods that require no heating •Blankets, bedding or sleeping bags •First-aid kit and prescription medications •Hand-operated can opener

•Special medical or infant supplies •A variety of hand tools •List of emergency phone numbers Develop and practice an emergency plan with everyone in your household. Fill your bathtub with water if your water supply depends on electricity. If you or someone you know relies on life-support equipment that requires electricity to operate, identify a location with emergency power capabilities and make plans to go there during a prolonged outage. Make sure cell phones are charged. Protect and unplug electronic equipment. Tune in to local news broadcasts for the latest weather and emergency information.

Follow the advice of your local emergency management officials. If you need to use a portable generator, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use only when necessary. Don’t overload it and turn it off at night while you sleep and when you are away from home. Additional tips are available in our “Storm Preparation Handbook” at www.delmarva.com.

Retirement funds will get $9.3 million contribution for FY ‘14 Actual value of pension trusts, medical benefits catches up to projection ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) The Ocean City government’s contribution towards its trust funds for pensions and other retirement benefits will total roughly $9.3 million for the current fiscal year, the City Council heard this week. This includes $3.3 million for the public safety employees’ pension fund, $2.4 million for the general employees’ pension fund, and $3.6 million for the fund supporting other post-employment benefits (OPEB) like retiree health care. “It comes very close to what we budgeted, actually $14,256 less,” Finance Administrator Martha Bennett said. The city’s contributions to its longterm employee funds have been consistently higher since the 2008 economic downturn, although that rough period is starting to improve. After the investment value of the city’s funds took a nosedive, the town broke up the additional payment necessary to make up for these losses over a five-year period, compounded with anticipated market recoveries.

“This year, after our five years are up, over a ten-year period. The general employees’ trust curour actual assets will exceed the value we assigned them in the smoothing,” Ben- rently has roughly $7.5 million in UAL: nett said. “It looks like we were able to $50.7 million of outstanding liability and get through that period using that $43.2 million in assets, creating a fundmethodology…of leveling our contribu- ing ratio of 85.2 percent.

Firstly, the both the employee and total payroll of these employees is higher the employer pay a certain amount into than the general employee base, at 34.4 the fund on a per-paycheck basis. This is percent versus 15.3. However, this ratio will likely level out known as “normal cost.” However, due to changes in the plan as new police officers are introduced into or variations in real experience versus the plan. In 2011, the city decided to the actuarial estimate, the city’s plans eliminate new entrants into the plan and gradually accrue additional liability. A put new employees on a 401(a) individportion of this may not be covered by the ual account system. Earlier this year, current assets of the plan, and this net is however, the city’s Fraternal Order of known as “unfunded accrued liability” Police negotiated to have new officers (UAL). The city amortizes this deficit put into the pension pool at a reduced

benefit. The town also has a separate fund for OPEB, with a current value of $15.5 million in assets versus $46 million in projected medical expenses. These are difficult to predict, however, as they hinge on the future health of employees. The city has been able to eliminate some of this risk by offering a high-deductible health plan — as opposed to more expensive Preferred Provider Organization plans — that would come with a city-incentivized Health Savings Account. The city has also enforced a cap to any increases in its insurance premium contributions for retirees, at 3 percent, to guard against the town taking the lion’s share of future rate increases. The $9.3 million in contributions for FY14 will be made in three installments over the next three months. “The actuarial valuation says we need to make the contribution by mid-year, which would be December,” Bennett said. “However, we are able to make some of the payments before December and I recommend doing that to get them into the plan for investment as soon as possible.” The city’s long-term plan estimates assume a rate of 7.5 percent return on investments, although this rate may have to be lowered under more strict accounting requirements, to be phased in next year.

Stephen Decatur golfers calm, cool and collected Tues. LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

The Stephen Decatur girls' soccer team's midfield was anchored by junior Jillian Petito, above, and senior captain Liz Rougcher, right, during last Friday's season opener against the Queen Anne's Lions in Berlin, Coach Misty Bunting said. Decatur won the competition at Seahawk Stadium 7-1.

SD Lady Seahawks shine in ‘13 season opener LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) The Stephen Decatur girls’ soccer team kicked off the 2013 season with a bang, outscoring the Queen Anne’s Lions 7-1 in last Friday’s season opener at Seahawk Stadium in Berlin. “I thought we played really well overall,” said Decatur Coach Misty Bunting.

“The midfield, anchored by (senior) Liz Rougcher and (junior) Jillian Petito, was composed, they settled the ball and did a good job feeding balls to the forwards, and the back four [defenders]–(senior captain) Rebecca Haskell, (sophomore) Lexi McDonough, (junior) Ali Beck and (junior) Jenna Leitgeb–were so solid the whole game.” Junior Payton VanKirk put Decatur

on the board with a goal four minutes into the game. At the 16-minute mark, senior captain Rebecca Lederman was wide open and shot the ball past the Queen Anne’s goalie. With about five minutes remaining in the first half, Lederman challenged the keeper for a loose ball, won it and scored to put Decatur on top 3-0. See LADY on Page 38A

(Sept. 13, 2013) The Stephen Decatur golf team captured its fourth victory of the season on Tuesday, but that wasn’t the only thrill for the Seahawks that night. After the match, when final stats were compiled, the top five golfers in the Bayside South Conference with the best averages were from Decatur. Jim Krall said it is Coach J. Krall the first time since he started coaching the team 16 years ago that the Seahawks hold the top five spots. “Having the top five golfers in the conference gives Coach [Don] Furbay and myself an incredible sense of pride,” he said. Senior captain Andrew Urban was ranked No. 1 in the Bayside South after Tuesday’s match with a 38.25 average. Freshman Matt Kristick followed close behind with a 38.5 average. In third and fourth place, respectively, were juniors Delaney Iacona (39) and Danny Parker (39.5). Decatur’s Brooks Holloway, a junior, was tied with Washington’s Chase Benton for fifth place. They both have 40-stroke averages. The Seahawks won the Sept. 10 eight-school competition at the Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club with a score of 157. Iacona birdied the last two holes to shoot one-over-par (37). She had the lowest score of the day and earned medalist honors. Also contributing to the victory was Kristick (39), Urban (40) and Holloway (41). Washington finished in second place with a 183. “Overall, the team was solid. I was very pleased with how we played from top to bottom,” Krall said. “One thing I’m most pleased with is that we’re widening the gap–the margin of victory tonight was 26 strokes.” Krall said the Washington Jaguars started off “as gangbusters, playing lights out,” but consistency and steadiness was key in the Seahawks’ victory, he added. “We remained calm, cool and collected,” Krall said. “We played the course and we weren’t worried about Washington. We were focused on our game.” Decatur’s next match is Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at The Bay Club in Berlin.

Decatur volleyball team edges out Colonels in first match of ’13 After dropping first two games, Seahawks bounce back and win final three LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team edged out the Colonel Richardson Colonels three games to two during last Friday’s season opener on the road.

The Colonels squeaked out a 25-23 victory in the first game and topped the Lady Seahawks 25-22 in the second. Decatur took the third game in Federalsburg, 25-20, and won the fourth 25-11 to force a fifth game. The visiting Seahawks secured the victory, outscoring the Colonels 15-9 in the final game. “While we lost the first two games, the girls played really well,” Coach Sarah Zimmer said. “Of course, there are things we can work on, but they were communicating, passes were

good, and they looked confident and comfortable. I think the girls really wanted the win and [they] worked hard to get it.” Senior captain Taylor Black had five aces and seven kills. Sammi Quilter, a senior, chipped in with 34 digs and junior setter Kayla Heinz logged 11 assists. Senior captain Katie VanBruggen contributed with seven kills. On Monday, the Seahawks traveled to Ridgely to play the North Caroline Bulldogs. Decatur lost the match in three games: 25-14, 25-18 and 25-12.

“I thought the girls started out a little slow, a little flat. By the end of the second game, I thought we had picked it up a bit,” Zimmer said. “In Game 3, the girls looked defeated. North Caroline had good servers and a couple powerful hitters that we just were not able to adjust to and I think that frustrated the girls.” Quilter had 15 digs and VanBruggen three kills in the loss. Decatur will take a trip to Salisbury Monday for a 5 p.m. competition against the Wi-Hi Indians.

Decatur team starts off strong, but falls to N. Caroline, 2-0

Lady Seahawks play controlled, quality soccer, coach says

LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor

Continued from Page 36A

(Sept. 13, 2013) The boys’ soccer game between the Stephen Decatur Seahawks and North Caroline Bulldogs in Berlin last Friday was scoreless at the end of the first half. “The first half we played fantastic. We did a lot of the things we’ve been working on in practice, like give-and-goes, and everything was clicking,” said Decatur Coach Jamie Greenwood. “We dominated. We started out really strong, but as the half went on we lost that intensity.” Midway into the second half, the visiting Bulldogs were award a free kick on a Decatur foul just outside the 18-yard box. The kick was placed right on goal and North Caroline capitalized, knocking the ball past Decatur senior goalie Logan Thumma (seven saves). About six minutes later, the Bulldogs scored a second goal to pull ahead 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining in the game. “The first free kick was well placed and the second goal the same thing. They were both off set pieces and we didn’t defend well against them,” Greenwood

said. “We needed to possess the ball better. In the second half we committed some dumb fouls. Fitness and dumb fouls were our downfall.” Greenwood said the season opener was a learning experience for his team.

He planned to take what was learned and incorporate it into training sessions this week. The Seahawks’ next game is Tuesday against the Mardela Warriors in Mardela Springs.

The Lions netted a penalty shot, awarded on a Decatur foul inside the 18yard box, six and a half minutes into the second half to cut the lead to two. The home team answered, scoring four goals. Freshman Lexi VanKirk netted one and Lederman tallied three to finish the day with five goals. Decatur sophomore Coach Bunting goalie Alexis Gausepohl stopped 11 Queen Annes’ shots. “She’s more confident and vocal in the goal this year,” Bunting said of Gausepohl. “She’s becoming a leader in the back.” Bunting said she was very happy with the Seahawks’ performance and the victory was a perfect way to start the season. “The girls were so focused and determined. They played good, controlled, quality soccer and that’s what we’ve been woking on,” she said. “From the back to the front, youngest to oldest, everyone contributed to the game.” The Seahawks are scheduled for a trip to Mardela Springs Monday to battle the Mardela Warriors.

Decatur football team holds on for 30-28 win over IR LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) Before the 2013 season began on Sept. 6, Stephen Decatur football Coach Bob Knox said his Seahawks would scratch, claw and do whatever it takes to win. They proved that in the season opener last Friday, earning a 30-28 victory over the Indian River Indians on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve beaten them. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been close a couCoach Knox ple times, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never won,â&#x20AC;? Knox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were discipline, they were physical, they fought and clawed and scratched and never gave up.â&#x20AC;? Senior P.J. Copes scored in the first and second quarters and Decatur went into the halftime break on top 14-0. The home team cut Decaturâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to five on a safety followed by a punt return touchdown. Senior Andrew Borradaile ran the ball into the end zone from about 13 yards out and Copes was successful on the twopoint conversion to give Decatur a 22-9 advantage with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. Indian River scored in the final seconds of the quarter and trailed by seven. Copes tallied his third touchdown then scored on a two-point conversion to boost Decaturâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead 30-16 in the fourth. The Indians returned the kickoff for a touchdown. With less than a minute remaining in the game, Indian River pulled to within two points. The quarterback keeper was no good and Decatur held on to win 30-28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play a perfect game. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some things we have to work to fix, but [those aspects of the game] can all be fixed,â&#x20AC;? Knox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids did a great job Friday night. These kids just love playing the game.â&#x20AC;? The Seahawks ran a total of 507 yards (411 rushing, 96 passing). Copes led Decatur, rushing 30 times for 294 yards. He had three touchdowns and two twopoint conversions. Borradaile ran the ball nine times, earning 93 yards and a touchdown. Junior quarterback Justin Meekins was 4-for-6 throwing for 96 yards. On defense, senior Chase Sams made nine tackles. Senior Montez Green and junior Shawnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;e Jones each had four tackles. Tyler Coppinger, a senior, recorded three tackles. The Queen Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lions come to Decatur tonight, Friday, for a 6 p.m. game against the Seahawks. To be successful, Knox said Decatur must â&#x20AC;&#x153;be discipline, take care of the ball, be physical and play every single play.â&#x20AC;?

Worcester’s Lady Mallards fight hard, but lose to Cougars, 2-1 LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) The Worcester Prep girls’ soccer team got off to a quick start when sophomore Julia D’Antonio scored off a pass from senior captain Lilly DiNardo about 45 seconds into last Friday’s season opener against Our Lady of

Mt. Carmel Cougars. The visiting Cougars evened the score off a free kick eight minutes later. The teams went into the halftime break tied 1-1. Prep Coach Carol Hartnett said the Lady Mallards pressed forward more in the second half and took a number of shots, but they were unsuccessful at get-

ting the ball past the Cougars’ keeper. Mt. Carmel netted a shot with a little over two minutes left to play and held on for a 2-1 victory. “I thought we played well. Our momentum and our effort the entire game was phenomenal,” Hartnett said. “Mt. Carmel is such a good team. We’re coming off a strong preseason–our

most rigorous preseason–and this was a good game to have at the start of the season.” The Mallards next competition is Friday, Sept. 20. The Prep squad will head to Easton to take on its Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference rivals, the Sts. Peter & Paul Sabres.

Worcester freshman Karlie Southcomb blocks a hit during last Friday's match against Mt. Carmel.

Lady Mallards improving, play better as unit in second match LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) Worcester Prep volleyball Coach Karen Hammer was pleased with the Lady Mallards’ performance during last Friday’s match against Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cougars, despite losing in three games. “We played well and fought hard,” Hammer said. Mt. Carmel won the first game 25-17 and the second 25-18. The Cougars earned the victory, topping the Mallards 25-21 in the third game. Prep junior Cecily Sass had seven assist, five kills, one ace and a block in the

loss. Freshman newcomer Karlie Southcomb tallied three aces, five kills and a block and senior captain Claire Stickler recorded three aces, six digs and five kills. Hammer said, “The team as a whole performed as a unit better. Serves were more consistent [and there were] less errors” compared to the Mallards’ season opener against the Salisbury Christian Jaguars two days earlier. Salisbury won 25-5, 25-23 and 25-15. Stickler logged four digs and five kills and senior captain Bethany Wolpin had an assist and three digs. On Monday, the Mallards will take a trip to Greenwood, Del., to face the Greenwood Mennonite Flames.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2013

Rumble grumble but it’s necessary As annoying as it might be to many residents along the coast, the mass gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts falling under the title of Bike Week is one big financial booster shot as the season winds down. It is not as if the resort doesn’t need the additional income. The summer report on business this year was that it was another up-and-down season, or, more appropriately, a down-and-up season, with it ending much better than it began. Nevertheless, one local operator summed it up best when asked how his summer went: “I’ll be eating meat this winter, but I won’t be buying a new car,” he said. We have had a number of those kinds of seasons in the past few years and there are many theories as to why that is. But the one fact everyone should be able to agree on is that just getting by year after year is not what anyone wants. That’s what makes events such as Bike Week important. It and all its components add a few more days to what otherwise is a six-week period when local businesses make the bulk of their money for the year. This event keeps restaurants, shops and hotels busy at a time when they otherwise would be scaling back or even preparing to close. As much as the sound of silence is appreciated by just about anyone who lives here, silence doesn’t pay anyone’s bills in this town. It’s perfectly acceptable not to like all the noise, but unless someone comes up with a way to finance our overall operation without drawing a crowd, or making noise or creating traffic, this event and others like it are just part of living here. To employ the cliché, you have to make hay while the sun shines. There will be plenty of quiet soon enough and too soon for some.

READERS’ FORUM

Ocean City Bus Line does disservice

Editor, First of all, I mean no disrespect to the Ocean City Bus Line, or anyone affiliated with it. If the contents of this letter sound like I’m being critical of the Ocean City Bus Line, that is certainly not my intent. However, I offer no apologies for this letter or my personal feeling expressed in it. Having worked in the public service and safety field, I was taught, “In America, where the supremacy of public opinion is assured, it is essential that the system upon public safety depends is developed to a high degree of efficiency and that it (is) administered in a manner to assure the continued approbation and respect of the public.” From Aug. 1, 2012 to the writing of this letter on Aug. 27, 2013 I feel the Ocean City Bus Line did not and has not adhered to this standard when it comes to the ordeal I experienced on one of its buses. On Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012 at approximately 6 a.m., I boarded an Ocean City Park and Ride bus at the inlet station, my destination being the Park and Ride station on Route 50. Upon boarding the bus, I noticed a strong odor— it smelled like something was burning. Mr. Bill Madden, the Ocean City Bus Driver radioed this infor-

mation in. A voice came across the radio: Make the run and the bus would be checked out later. So Mr. Bill departed the inlet station with me being the only passenger. After going about two or three blocks after leaving the Inlet Station until we reached the foot of the Route 50 bridge, the smell became increasingly worse. Mr. Bill radioed this information in at least three or four times. Each time the reply message over the radio was the same: Try and complete the run. As we were going up a little slope while crossing the Route 50 bridge, the bus began to hesitate, as if it was trying to cut out. All the time, the smell was getting stronger. Mr. Bill then radioed this new information in. We continued on, turning right off Route 50 into the White Marlin Mall. The hesitation in the bus motor worsened. It was at this time Mr. Bill radioed in again, this time requesting another bus be sent down to him. We proceeded through the mall, turning right onto golf course road. After we had gone about a hundred yards, all of sudden there was a loud boom. The bus then shut completely down, losing all power, and started filling up with smoke from the rear forward. Mr. Bill and I then scrambled off the bus, with him grabbing some orange triangle shaped markers. As he and I were placing these markers around the

bus, there came another loud boom. This time black smoke started coming out the bus and from underneath it. We then moved far away from the bus, ending up in the bank parking lot. As we were standing there, there were two more loud booms, and the entire bus was engulfed in flames. After a short period of time, Ocean City Police Officers, Maryland State Troopers, the fire department and what I think were Ocean City Bus Line officials began arriving on the scene. After being spoken to by someone from the fire department, confirming I was not in need of medical attention, I was interviewed by an Ocean City Police Officer. It was during this interview I saw another Ocean City bus drive up. I then saw Mr. Bill talking to a couple of gentleman, who I assumed were Ocean City Bus Line officials. I then saw Mr. Bill board that bus and drive it away. After the interview and having my credentials handed back to me, I was told by the interviewing Ocean City police I was free to go. After standing in the pouring rain for approximately 10 to 20 minutes more, I was never shown the courtesy of be approached or even spoken to by anyone on the scene from the Ocean City Bus Line. So feeling as though I was Continued on Page 45A

SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 The last time I was on a motorcycle, the guy steering the thing in front of me sudd e n l y whipped toward an offroad beach ramp and By Stewart Dobson s h o u t e d , “Hold on!” This is like hearing the pilot of a Boeing 777 announce over the loudspeaker, as you soar over the Rockies, “Hey, everyone, watch this!” The terms, “Hold on!” and “Watch this!” are not what you would call great confidence builders to anyone who’s just along for the ride. In a way, they are like the words my brother growls when he is trying and failing to fix something, whether it’s mechanical, structural or electrical, and out of frustration decides on a course of action that may or may not be fatal: “Well, something’s going to happen!” Those of us who are familiar with this expression understand that what it means is, “Run for your lives.” The “hold on” moment, however, was different in that there was no time to anticipate departing this world under less than optimal circumstances. In other words, it is the difference between thinking, “The house is probably going to explode and we’re all going to die so I’m sorry for every bad thing I’ve ever done” vs. “Holy ****!” We had been cruising on his new bike on a beach road down south, when his medication either kicked in or kicked out. All I know is that we were on the ramp only briefly before achieving liftoff. Let me say that many things go through your mind when you leave the ground in or on something that was not designed to fly. The first thought, of course, is “Am I wearing clean underwear?” The second thought is, “Am I still wearing clean underwear? In the tornado of sprocket-ruining, gear-grinding sand that erupted around us on reentry, I resolved that I would stick to four wheels whether as an operator or passenger. I was tempted one other time, but politely demurred when an acquaintance in Arizona invited me to join him and 200 of his closest friends for their annual Grand Canyon run for the weekend. You might say they all belonged to a social organization of sorts with their very own jackets. I opted out when my would-be guide explained how relaxing it would be communing with nature, no televisions, no phones, no nothing. “So, Ed,” I asked, leaning towards going, “On these trips, how do you spend your time?” “Mostly unconscious,” Ed replied. I declined. You can say what you want, but a little voice inside me said, “Well, something’s going to happen.”

OPINION 45A

READERS’ FORUM being completely ignored, I walked across the street to the Park and Ride station to seek shelter and await the next shore transit bus to Salisbury. It was while I was waiting for the Shore Transit bus’s departure I saw Mr. Bill come thru the Park and Ride driving another bus. After seeing me, he got off the bus and came up to me. After assuring each other that we were alright, we shook hands and instant friendship was formed. I then boarded the Shore Transit bus to Salisbury. Before I continue, I know that I thanked you all numerous times that morning. I want to take this opportunity to thank the bus driver and the passengers on that Shore Transit bus that morning. After seeing me soaking wet, not one of you complained while I requested the air conditioning be shut off. So from the bottom of my heart, thank Continued from Page 44A

you for the concern and compassion you all showed me. Now here is why I’m still deeply disturbed over this incident: A couple of days later, a lady passenger on the Shore Transit bus showed me pictures and gave me some information on the same make and model bus I had my experience on. It seems, earlier in the year, a couple of buses of this make and model showed or had the same warning signs as this Ocean City bus, with them having basically the same results. Fortunately, the drivers were the only ones on the bus, and they, too, escaped injury. However, it is my understanding the buses of this make and model were pulled out of service pending factory approval. Even though I lost a briefcase and the valuables inside of it in that fire, I don’t care. I’ve never asked the Ocean City Bus Line

%

for the replacement of these things or anything else. They were just material things. Anything and everything that could be replaced, I have since replaced. I was thankful Mr. Bill and I were not injured or worse. Now here is the question that has remained in the back of my mind for over a year: If this women could go to her computer and find out this information, about this make and model bus, it is possible that someone in this Ocean City Public Service Organization knew of the problems and /or the warning signs of this make and model bus? If so, that’s OK, stuff happens. But to have ordered Mr. Bill to continue on that run, putting his and my life in danger, is very appalling to me. Why wasn’t the bus ordered to shut down, especially with all the radio transmissions that were conContinued on Page 46A

READERS’ FORUM stantly being transmitted? It has been over a year now. I have yet to hear from the Ocean City Bus Line. All I want to know is why I was ignored and left standing in the pouring rain, especially when all I did was try and aid your driver in every way possible. Continued from Page 45A

As a 62-year-old man at the time, now 63, I felt and still feel some kind of compassion and respect could have and should have been shown towards me. Not to have been spoken to that day or a year later is amazing to me. A simple “Are you OK?” would have been something, even if it wasn’t sincere.

I guess the old saying “I can forgive, but I can’t forget” is how I feel about handling this situation. So, it is will all the sincerity, I can say, “Have a nice day, and may God bless you all.” Lawrence Ryder Salisbury Editor’s note: Ocean City’s Department of Public Works was previously unaware of the issues raised, but is now looking into the matter. “I received the same letter and have spoken to Mr. Ryder,” Transportation Superintendent George Thornes said in an email. “It disturbs me that he was not interviewed immediately following the fire…since reading his letter I now have more questions regarding the incident.”

Editor, The Ocean Pines-Ocean City Kiwanis Club is fast approaching the end of the program year. As a service organization of our community, Kiwanis strives to make a difference in that community. The new year for Kiwanis begins Oct. 1, 2013 through Sept. 30, 2014. Again this last year, 2012- 2013, the club has contributed significantly to “Serving the Children of our Community.” Beginning with the $1,200 Priority One contribution to Worcester Gold’s Baby Pantry and ending with the $13,500 in scholarships to Stephen Decatur High School seniors heading off to college, the Club has served our children well. Support for the schools and the Kiwanis Youth Service clubs within the schools amounted to $6,850. Additionally, the club contributed $3,300 to community based youth programs like CASA, Cedar Chapel School, Ocean Pines camp, Ocean City summer camp, the Cub Scouts, OP Children’s Theater and the McGuffey Reading Program.

Perhaps more important than money, the club donated hundreds of volunteer hours to school art fairs, science fairs, It’s Academic, our sponsored school Kiwanis youth service clubs and our sponsored Cub Scouts. The Kiwanis Club has also played a supporting role in the community, contributing $2,900 to community support organizations: the OPVFD, the OPA Concerts in the Park, Worcester County Interfaith Caregivers, Diakonia, Worcester Gold Holiday Families, Coastal Hospice and the Appalachian Service Project; plus hundreds of volunteer hours towards Nursing Home bingo, dolls for patients, blood drives, the senior chores program, and the house number signs that assist our first responders on emergency calls day and night. So, how does all this get done? Through members’ volunteer hours and hard work on all of the fundraisers. All of this is paid for by the members’ work on pancake breakfasts, hot dog sales, German/Italian dinners, Boardwalk raffles, the annual Duck Race, the Fruit Sales and the weekly donations from our members to Priority One. Of course, it’s not all hard work; there is the satisfaction of working together to get these results. So here comes 2013-2014. The Kiwanis Club is committed to doing this again. But in addition to Kiwanis members, we need friends and neighbors to support, participate and/or join the Kiwanis team and help the club continue these services for the 2013-2014 program year. Again, we thank our community for its continued support. Barbara Peletier President of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Ocean Pines - Ocean City

(Sept. 13, 2013) Now a traditional gathering over food and music, Blues on the Bay is back next Wednesday, Sept. 18, to raise money for Coastal Hospice & Palliative Care. Owners of Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill Pam and Macky Stansell will host the event at their 54th Street location for the sixth year. “It’s a cocktail party with wonderful food and open bar,” Pam Stansell said. But more importantly, “it is an awareness-type of get-together to let the community know about the progress that we’ve made with the Coastal Hospice by the Ocean building.” The building, a Coastal Hospice residence to be built in Berlin, will accommodate Hospice patients who are no longer able to live on their own, Director of Development at Coastal Hospice Maureen McNeill said. Coastal Hospice hopes to break ground on the residence center in 2014, with a construction process of one to one-and-a-half years, she said. Blues on the Bay is one of two fundraisers Coastal Hospice presents on the water each year, McNeill said. “It raises $20,000 easily each year,” she said, “Because they (the Stansells) donate everything, it’s that powerful [of] a fundraiser for us.” Last year, around 250 attendees help raise $28,000 during Blues on the Bay, she said. This year, around 130 people registered early for the event, promising another strong showing since many people buy tickets last minute or at the door, McNeill said. Blues on the Bay starts at 6 p.m. and

(Sept. 13, 2013) From charity motorcycle rides to the blessing of the bikes, thousands of motorcycle fans will converge in Salisbury and Ocean City this week for bikethemed fun.

• OC Bike Fest OC Bike Fest is back in town for its third year with live music, vendors, and thrill show performances at the Inlet and at the convention center on 40th Street. “We’re the official motorcycle rally of Ocean City,” event organizer Cliff Sutherland said. “The second year, we really grew it and the third year, the convention center will probably see over 100,000 motorcyclists.”

Both Ocean City sites offer free parking for bikes, and entry to the convention center is free. Admission to the Inlet, where national musical acts perform, is $25 for a weeklong pass or $20 for day passes. Kids 12 and under will be admitted for $15, good for the entire week. At the Inlet: On Friday, Blizzard of Ozzy opens the Boardwalk Stage with Ozzy Osbourne tributes from 1-2:30 p.m., followed by Jamiah on Fire and the Red Machine performing Jimi Hendrix tributes from 4-5:30 p.m. At the Ocean Stage, Foghat plays from 2:30-4 p.m. with War to follow from 5:30-7 p.m. Saturday at noon, the second annual Blessing of the Motorcycles takes place in the parking lot of the Knight of Columbus Hall behind St. Luke’s Church, 9901 Coastal Highway in Ocean City.

Evening of food, music and fun to benefit Coastal Hospice guests show up on time, she said. Macky’s will provide a variety of hors d’oeuvres, including tenderloin, scallops beurre blanc and other “upscale cocktail finger food,” Pam Stansell said. “It’s a meal,” McNeill promised. Everett Spells will provide the music during the event and attendees often get up to dance. There will be an open bar during the event. Founded in 1980, Coastal Hospice is a private, non-profit program providing traditional hospice services, palliative care, bereavement support, education and training to patients and their families in Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Dorchester counties. The group began collecting funds to build a residence center in Worcester County in 2008, McNeill said. “If you look at where our older population is, they’re in northern Worcester County,” she said. The residence will be a medical facility, but “it won’t feel like one.” McNeill said. “It will feel like home.” The building will initially have enough room for six live-in patients, with plans to ultimately expand to accommodate 12. “Over the course of the year, we’ll have 50 or so patients stay at Coastal

Hospice at the Ocean,” McNeill said. The project will require Hospice to hire new staff like nurses’ aids and RNs. Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will be different from Coastal Hospice at the Lake, in Salisbury, “because that’s more of an in-patient facility. This is more of a residence,” McNeill said. In all, Coastal Hospice cares for around 75 patients a day in Worcester and Somerset counties, she said. The Stansells got involved with Coastal Hospice more than 20 years ago, when Pam Stansell’s mother came to live with them near the end of her life. Macky Stansell has been on the Coastal Hospice board for a decade and is involved with the Coastal Hospice at the Ocean capital campaign. “We are grateful to Macky and Pam for putting on this party for us,” McNeill said. “It’s really above and beyond the call.” Blues on the Bay was named the best charity event in 2012 by local voters in the Greatest Around Ocean City 2012 poll. Voters also named Coastal Hospice the Best Local Charity. Tickets cost $50 and include an open bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changing season brings new experiences as well as challenges for the ever-adventurous Aries. Your social life expands, as do the opportunities at your workplace. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That recent period of uncertainty has passed. You can now feel more confident about making decisions, especially those that relate to an important personal relationship. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might be faced with a number of tasks on your to-do list, try to take time out to enjoy the arts. Music, especially, can be soothing to the sensitive soul of a Gemini. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A disagreement with a colleague or friend is best resolved with open and frank discussion. Trying to force the other party to see things your way is bound to backfire. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That Leonine pride might be ruffled by a colleague’s challenge to one of your pet ideas. But stop growling and listen. You could learn something that will work to your advantage. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone in authority might decide to select you as a candidate for a project that carries more responsibilities. Be prepared to show why you’re the right choice for the job. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) That new workplace problem should be dealt with as soon as possible. Leaving it unresolved for too long could lead to an even more unsettling and time-consuming situation. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might have to do some fancy juggling to keep both your work responsibilities and personal obligations on track. But ultimately, you’ll work it all out, as you always do. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might hear some upsetting things about a situation in your life. But don’t be swayed by talk. Demand proof before making any decisions on the matter. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don’t risk depleting those precious energy levels by taking on more tasks than you can realistically handle. Also, remember to ask for help when you need it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It might be difficult for the Aquarian who is used to giving advice to take counsel when offered. But it’s a good idea to listen to what trusted friends feel you should know. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things might be a little unsettled as you move through a period of reassessment. But once you get your priorities sorted out, you should be ready to tackle an important decision.

With less personnel, OCBP reduces coverage ON GUARD

Sept. 22 final day guards will be on duty in resort KRISTIN JOSON  Contributing Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) The Ocean City Beach Patrol has been providing reduced coverage since the third week in August. This reduction in personnel, which occurs annually, is complicated by the early start of college classes and the return of education professionals to school systems throughout the United States. This includes our local Worcester County public schools, which had students begin a week prior to Labor Day. Reduced coverage is a reduction in available staff and extends until the Sunday of Sunfest weekend (the third Sunday following Labor Day), Sept. 22. During this reduced coverage, staffing levels will be far less than the OCBP’s mid-season deployment. The beach patrol had more than 75 percent of its staff report to other responsibilities prior to Labor Day with the majority returning as students, and the remainder taking full time career positions or returning to their classrooms as educators.

heavily on the local educators along with other additional returning surf rescue technicians who often have to travel long distances to come back to help increase the total number of stands ( and decrease the distance between stands) on weekends. In addition, the Beach Patrol increases the number of mobil rescue units patrolling the beach. Further impacting our situation at the end of the season is the typical increase in tropical storm activity in the Atlantic as well as approaching hurricanes, although, thankfully this has not been as big an issue this year. They do their fair share of stirring up some rough surf. The heavier surf contributes to the frequency and severity of rip currents that form along the beaches of Ocean City and pose an increased danger to swimmers. Although not as severe as recent years, the Beach Patrol has seen some powerful rips that can open up at any given time and have caused a few days of increased rescue activity. The Beach Patrol believes that these conditions warrant beachgoers to take extra precautions and walk the short distance to swim in the vicinity of a surf rescue technician on a stand. Or better yet, people should just swim directly in front of the lifeguard.

Many of these educators are required to return two weeks prior to Labor Day each year to attend professional meetings and prepare for the arrival of students. Several school systems brought teachers back three weeks before Labor Day, which has been a trend for the past couple of years for both colleges and public school systems. This change has dramatically impacted the availability of the majority of the Beach Patrol’s 200 employees during the last weeks of summer. Historically, the beach patrol has needed to begin reducing coverage beginning with the third week in August as its staffing levels decreased to approximately 60 percent of the mid-season deployment. However, this year hasn’t been as challenging as the past few, and the number of stands deployed on a daily basis has been slightly higher than in recent years. This is a direct result of targeted recruiting and several of the surf rescue technicians, lifeguards, making a conscious effort and planning on working full time until the final day of the season. At this time of the year, the Beach Patrol relies more

Only swim when Ocean City Beach Patrol lifeguards are on duty ON GUARD Because of the dedication and commitment of its staff, the Beach Patrol will be able to continue providing coverage for all 10 miles of Ocean City beaches until Sunday, Sept. 22. Although this coverage will be done with fewer personnel and fewer lifeguard towers, the coverage will be supplemented by increasing the number of mobil rescue units patrolling the beach. These mobile units are first-aid and AED equipped with one surf rescue technician acting as the primary rescue swimmer while the other surf r escue t technician maintains radio communication and backup during an emergency. Both are qualified as surf

rescue technicians, medical first responders and are quad (ATV) certified. Surf rescue technicians will continue to be on duty daily between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., although the distance between stands will be greatly increased. The first priority of the Ocean City Beach Patrol continues to be public safety. The Beach Patrol strongly encourage all beach patrons to restrict any beach or water-related activities to times when its personnel are on duty, never swim alone, always stay within the limits of their ability and never rely on a flotation device. In contrast to closing out the 2013 season, this is also the time when the Beach Patrol starts testing for new lifeguards for 2014 and begin focusing on

its staffing needs for next season. During the planning for next season, the Beach Patrol will review statistics and data and will make decisions on the number and placement of lifeguard stands. To begin reaching its recruiting goals, the Beach Patrol held a test Aug. 10 and Aug. 31 and offered appointments to next seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Surf Rescue Academies to 38 highly qualified candidates. If any additional staff members are needed for next season, the Beach Patrol will hold additional pre-employment physical skills evaluations. Those evaluations may take place during the winter at colleges in the mid-Atlantic region or in Ocean City in late May and June. Those individuals who qualify will receive an appoint-

ment to a paid Surf Rescue Academy in May or June 2014 where all training and certifications will be provided. The ending of one season blends into the beginning of the next with a lot of the behind the scenes planning taking place throughout the winter. For more information about the testing or training of beach patrol hopefuls click on the JOBS button on www.ococean.com/ocbp. For daily locations of surf rescue technicians, call beach patrol headquarters at 410-2897556. Always remember, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the stand!â&#x20AC;? For safety, swim directly in front of the nearest surf rescue technician and only swim when lifeguards are on duty.

Assortment of motorcycle-related activities planned this wknd.

â&#x20AC;˘ Delmarva Bike Week

The 13th annual Delmarva Bike Week began Wednesday and festivities con-

tinue throughout the weekend through Sunday at four locations: Seacrets on 49th Street in Ocean City, Rommel Harley-Davidson Delmarva in Seaford, Del. and Winter Place Park and the Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury. From live music to pin runs, the American Motor Dome thrill show, giveaways and more, the weekend is packed with activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all free, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just this amazing amount of entertainment,â&#x20AC;? event coordinator Kerry Mendenhall said. There will be around 140 vendor displays, concentrated in Winter Place Park but also present at all four Bike Week locations, he said. Starting at 9 a.m. each day, riders may register at Winter Place Park, Perdue Stadium or the Harley-Davidson shop in Seaford for the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cruzin the Coastâ&#x20AC;? Pin Run. A $20 entry fee earns riders an official T-shirt and pin for the self-paced ride lasting the duration of Bike Week, through noon on Sunday. The challenge takes riders to different Delmarva locations, where they collect stamps from a number of listed businesses to be entered into a 50/50 drawing. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner took home $1,700 and riders donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be present on Sunday to win, Mendenhall said said. Today, Friday, has a full line-up of live musical acts onstage at Winter Place

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the stadium. There will be trophies and prizes for more than a dozen categories in the bike show. The overall and peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice winners will be featured in Fast Lane Biker magazine.

on the table. “We were originally coming down for bike week, so when we saw it, we figured ‘why not enter,’” MacDonald said. “We were ready for it.” Their story and mutual love for motorcycles made them the top choice out of about two dozen entries, Publisher of Fast Lane Biker Magazine Delmarva Caroline Fellman said. “It’ll be a nice start for them. They won’t have to put out thousands and thousands of dollars for a wedding,” she said. “It’s going to be a fabulous wedding.” All are invited to the family-friendly exchanging of vows, though the Inlet admission fee of $25 (or $20 for one-day admission, $15 for children) still applies. Guests should arrive at 4 p.m. for the wedding starting at 4:45 p.m. on the main stage at the Inlet, with a reception to follow at the 45th Street Taphouse from 9 p.m. to midnight. “It’s something that they’ll talk to their grandchildren about, that they’ll talk to their great grandchildren about,” Fellman said. “I feel like it (motorcycle riding) just brings us closer together,” MacDonald said. “We just have a lot of fun.” Anyone else who would like to use the chapel at the Inlet to get married or renew their vows during Bike Week is welcome, Fellman said.

Sunfest kicks off Thursday with parade and opening ceremony Four-day festival features food, music and arts and crafts at inlet parking lot LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Sept. 13, 2013) Sunfest, Ocean City’s annual fall festival, kicks off Thursday, marking the end of a busy summer and the start of the long-awaited “second season.” Scheduled for Sept. 19-22, the four-day festival offers food, arts and crafts, live entertainment and an assortment of family activities. In 2010 and 2011, Sunfest was rated the best Classic and Contemporary Arts and Crafts Show in the country by Sunshine Artist, “America’s Premiere Show and Festival Magazine.” The rankings are based on audit reports, reader surveys and anecdotal reports from participating exhibitors. Last year, Sunfest was rated No. 2. The drop could have be the result of rain that fell on the 37th annual celebration in 2011. Overall attendance for the four-day 2011 festival was 154,507, a 7percent decrease from the 2010 event. “No. 2 is great and we can always get No. 1 back if the vendors have a good year,” Shuster said before the 2012 festival. “Rain does affect sales.” A few weeks ago it was announced that

Sunfest was back on top in the No. 1 spot of the 100 Best Classic and Contemporary Craft Shows. Springfest, Ocean City’s spring festival in May, earned the fifth-place spot. “It’s nice to climb back to the top of the mountain. We take pride in the recognition we get from (being ranked),” said Tom Shuster, director of the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department. “Vendors and [attendees] see a value in what we provide.…We try to make all groups feel welcome and part of the fun of Sunfest, and, good weather always helps.” Four days of ideal weather was a major factor in bringing large crowds to the inlet parking lot for the 38th annual Sunfest celebration last year. Sunfest experienced its biggest attendance since 2008, when it drew an estimated 194,385 visitors. Last year’s attendance was 185,016, an increase of more than 30,000 guests from 2011, when rain dampened part of the festival. Valerie Lynch-Beaudin and her Onóra Island Treasure Boxes company, based in Panama City, Fla., made their Sunfest debut last year. She and her husband handcraft Celtic Treasure Boxes. “Sunfest is now our No. 1 show in regards to total sales,” she said after the 2012 event. “Weather was great, we had a good time, met some wonderful folks and made some money. It doesn’t get much better than that…” Lucy Wirsching of Pasadena, Md. was also a first-time Sunfest vendor last year.

She thought the venue was a perfect match for her one-of-a-kind driftwood sailboats. “I can’t believe that I have been missing out on a great festival. The music was fantastic, the food was great and the crowd was outstanding,” she said after the 2012 festival. “Not only did I have immediate sales, I left the show with custom orders for 23 new boats. The show was a huge success ... I must say that it was the most organized show I have participated in.” The 39th annual Sunfest celebration will kick off at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, with a Boardwalk parade that will conclude at the festival grounds in the inlet parking lot. The opening ceremony will feature the Ocean City Police Color Guard, Stephen Decatur High School’s cheerleaders and Beyond the Blue concert choir; Mayor Rick Meehan, City Council members and other town officials. At 10 a.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony will open the festival. More than 180 arts and crafts vendors will fill two tents with items such as pottery, ceramics, carvings, jewelry, fine art, photography, paintings, candles and scents, soaps, dolls, pet products, clothing and apparel, home and garden items, woodwork and metal ware. About a dozen artists will again demonstrate their skills in the midway section of the festival grounds. Approximately two-dozen food vendors will offer unique dishes as well as America favorites. Visitors can sample Asian, Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, seafood, sal-

ads, hot dogs, hamburgers, pit-cooked ham, pizza, chicken, crab cakes and ribs. For the sweet tooth, there will be ice cream, hot apple buns, funnel cakes and cookies. “Our food tent is always eclectic in its tastes and offerings,” Shuster said. Gourmet vendors selling coffees, fudge, nuts, candies, soup, dips and pastry items, and commercial vendors will be located in the midway section of Sunfest. This year’s musical entertainment will range from country to rock ‘n’ roll and jazz. Admission is free, although tickets are required for the main stage headlining acts. “I’m particularly happy with the entertainment line-up this year,” Shuster said. Jesse Garron will perform his Tribute to Elvis show on Thursday, Sept. 19. Tickets cost $5-$10. On Friday, Sept. 20, country musicians Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves will take the stage. Tickets range from $20 to $55. The Beach Boys will entertain a sold-out crowd on Saturday, Sept. 21. Tickets for the concert were gone by the end of May, the earliest Shuster said he can remember tickets selling out for a Sunfest show. All shows will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for headline acts are on sale at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center box office on 40th Street. Box office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. They may also be purchased by calling TicketMaster at 800-551-7328 or by visiting www.ticketmaster.com. See SUNFEST on Page 16B

Winterfest makes Top 100 list of events in N. America for ‘14

ENGAGED Mr. and Mrs. Paolo Calcara of Ocean City announce the engagement of their daughter, Alessandra Diana, to Mr. Justin James Field Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Justin James Field Sr. of Broomes Island, Md. Alessandra is a graduate of Stephen Decatur High School and Salisbury University. The groom -to- be also graduated from Salisbury University. A fall wedding is planned.

(Sept. 13, 2013) The American Bus Association recently announced that Winterfest of Lights, to be held Nov. 21 through Jan. 2, 2014, has been designated as one of the Top 100 Events in North America for 2014 by an experienced expert tourism industry selection committee. Inclusion in the Top 100 list, published as a supplement to the September/October issue of Destinations magazine, indicates that Winterfest of Lights offers excellent entertainment value to both tour groups and individual travelers from around the world, according to ABA. With the release of the American Bus Association’s 2014 Top 100 Events in North America, ABA celebrates 32 years of the program. What began as a way for

motorcoach operators to incorporate new product into their itineraries has grown to one of the most sought-after lists by travel professionals, motorcoach operators and the general public. “The attractiveness of Winterfest of Lights as a don’t-miss entertainment value is only part of why its selection this year is such a distinction for Ocean City,” said Peter J. Pantuso, CTIS, ABA’s president and CEO. “The real news here is that Winterfest of Lights has been recognized as a potential magnet for tourism dollars, at a time when reenergizing domestic tourism is so important to our spirit and our economy. The honor gives Ocean City an important boost in visibility among professional tour planners.” According to studies completed by researchers at The George Washington University and Dunham and Associates, one overnight visit by a motorcoach group can leave from US $5,000 to more than US $11,000 in a local destination’s economy. Those dollars are spent on lodging, meals, admissions, fees, shopping, souvenirs, services and local taxes. “Motorcoach groups spend more and stay longer,” Pantuso said. “That’s why Winterfest of Lights is truly a local economic asset. There is no better way to jump-start tourism than to attract motorcoach groups to a great event and convince them to extend their stay.” ABA’s 2014 Top 100 Events Selection Committee selected Winterfest of Lights from hundreds of event nominations submitted by ABA members. Judges considered the event’s broad appeal, its accessibility to motorcoaches and skill at handling large groups, and a variety of other relevant criteria.

Sunfest ranked top show by magazine Tickets will be sold on site at the festival grounds during the event. Sunfest is for all ages. Children may take part in an assortment of activities, including Xtreme Events’ interactive inflatables on the beach, a rock-climbing wall, sand art, temporary henna tattoos and face painting. “September is always a special time in Ocean City. We think Sunfest is one of the best reasons to visit Ocean City in September,” Shuster said. “We’re hoping for another great turnout.” Sunfest hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 19-21, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22. Parking is restricted at Sunfest. Visitors are urged to take the bus to the festival grounds. The Boardwalk tram will also offer service daily.

Variety of ways to prepare eggplant, but Parmesan style a classic FOOD FOR THOUGHT DEBORAH LEE WALKER ■ Contributing Writer (Sept. 13, 2013) Eggplant, or aubergine, is indigenous to a vast area that stretches from India and Burma, to Thailand, Vietnam and China. The word eggplant in English dates back to the British occupation of India, where white egg-shaped fruits were popular. Eggplants are considered a member of the berry family. In various parts of Europe, people suspected that eating eggplant caused madness, leprosy, cancer and bad breath. This is why use of the elongated fruit was mostly for decoration in England and the United States nearly up to the 20th century. Eggplants have a dimple at the blossom end. The dimple can be round or oval. The round ones seem to have more seeds and tend to be less meaty. To tenderize the flesh’s texture and reduce some of its naturally occurring bitterness, sweat the eggplant by salting

it generously. After cutting the eggplant into desired size and shape, salt it and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes. Also, eggplants absorb more fat in cooking than any other vegetable and degorging helps reduce this effect. Rinse eggplant after degorging process. Smaller, immature eggplants are best. Full-size may have hard seeds and a bitter aftertaste. Choose a firm, smoothskinned eggplant that is heavy for its size. Gently push with your thumb. If the flesh gives slightly and bounces back, it is ripe. If the indention remains, it is overripe and should be avoided. When cutting an eggplant, use a stainless steel knife as carbon steel will react with its phytonutrients and cause the flesh to turn black. The beauty of eggplant is that it stands on its own like no other vegetable. If you relish the thought of thinking out of the box, following are a few suggestions. Roasted and smashed eggplant that is dipped in egg and fried to look like an omelet Filipinostyle steps ups the creativity. Another option is Sichuan-style eggplant cooked in garlicky, spicy brown sauce. Finally, a thick spread of roasted eggplant, tomato, and garlic with Middle Eastern spices and topped with a tiny

dollop of yogurt and served with pita definitely will be a crowd pleaser. But for those who enjoy the simpler things; eggplant Parmesan is classic and packed with flavor. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS 4 tablespoons canola oil 1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped 5 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon dried basil 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes 1/3 cup chicken stock 1/3 cup half and half few pinches baking soda kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 eggs 1/2 cup water 2/3 cup dried Italian breadcrumbs 2/3 panko breadcrumbs 2 eggplants 1/4 grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese fresh basil for garnish 1. Slice eggplants into 3/4-inch slices. Liberally apply salt and allow to rest for

at least 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. 2. In a large pot over medium-high heat, add the canola oil. Add the onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, and dried seasoning and cook until onions become translucent. Add the tomatoes, chicken stock, cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and allow sauce to reduce; this will thicken the sauce. 3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 4. Set up a breading station using three baking dishes. In the first dish, add the flour. In the second dish, whisk the eggs and water. In the third dish, combine the Italian and panko breadcrumbs. Dredge in flour, then in the egg wash and finally in the breadcrumbs. 5. Arrange the eggplant on two sheet trays fitted with racks and bake until crispy, about 25 minutes. 6. Turn the oven to broil. Put the eggplant into a baking dish in two rows. Cover eggplant with sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbling. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.

Igor Conev (above) receives the chamber’s Young Professional of the Year award from Mayor Rick Meehan. Conev is employed with Mann Properties, where he first began as a parking lot attendant 15 years ago after arriving in the U.S. from Macedonia. Conev worked his way through the company’s ranks to his current executive position as the right hand of company owner Buck Mann. Conev is active in a number of local charitable and advocacy groups, and serves as Secretary of the Ocean City Development Corporation. Macky Stansell (top left), with Meehan, Community Foundation President Douglas Wilson and County Commissioner Merrill Lockfaw, is honored with the Citizen of the Year award for his continuing philanthropic contributions to a number of local organizations. Stansell also wished to extend the honor to his wife, Pam, his business partner in their restaurant, Mack’s Bayside Bar and Grill on 54th Street. “This is such an incredible town as far as giving is concerned,” Stansell said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” Stephanie Meehan (middle left), with Meehan, Phillip Cheung of Gregory and Associates, and Lockfaw, receives the Volunteer of the Year award for her devotion to a number of causes, including Coastal Hospice and her own cancer foundation, Beads of Life. Meehan operates Funcade on the Boardwalk, and has been an officer in a number of local business groups, including the chamber of commerce. “When you work on these committees and boards for a long time, you come to realize that it’s not about you, it’s about the people around you,” Meehan said. John Gehrig (bottom left), flanked by Meehan, Worcester County Economic Development Director Bill Badger, and Lockfaw accepts the Business Person of the Year. Gehrig began his web development and marketing company, D3Corp, in 1995. Since then, it has become the resort area’s premier web design and ecommerce firm. “This award would be more fitting if it was ‘business of the year’ or ‘business persons of the year,’” Gehrig said. “If there’s one thing I’ve done well, it’s to surround myself with people who are better than me.” As a chamber board member and advisor to several city and county destination marketing groups, Gehrig’s goal is to attract high-level professionals and cuttingedge businesses to the resort area. “That’s been a big focus of mine, to bring people here and keep them here,” Gehrig said. “It’s up to us now to keep this town going with the next generation of professionals.”

REAL ESTATE REPORT

‘Seacrets Service’ new free shuttle goes extra mile for patrons

Home purchases by investors decrease, according to survey

CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer

LAUREN BUNTING  Contributing Writer

(Sept. 13, 2013) Launched Sept. 5, “Seacrets Service” transporter has gone off without a hitch, Seacrets, Jamaica U.S.A. Owner Leighton Moore said. The new, free shuttle service picks up customers from any location in Ocean City, West Ocean City, Ocean Pines and Berlin and take them to Seacrets on 49th Street. When the happy hour or night is over, it drops them off anywhere in the same area, even other restaurants or bars. “We’re trying to be responsible, we’re trying to get extra added service, and we’re trying to get people a way that they can come back to Ocean City,” Moore said. Starting with a four-person limo, he recently added two 12-person vans and a 28-passenger bus to his fleet. So far, the shuttle has been “really busy,” said driver Deborah Price. Customers “are really appreciative of it.

(Sept. 13, 2013) Investors accounted for about 20 percent of home purchases in June, down from a high of 23 percent in February and the lowest level since September 2012, according to the Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance survey of real estate conditions. Investors appear poised to reduce purchases further, a recent Reuters article reported. A recent survey by polling firm ORC International that found about 48 percent of investors surveyed planned to curtail home purchases over the next year, up from 30 percent in a poll 10 months earlier. Only 20 percent expect to buy more homes, down from 39 percent. “Investors helped stabilize a housing market that was in free-fall and they did so by taking advantage of firesale home prices,” said Michael Feroli, chief U.S. economist at , in the Reuters article. “Now you see fewer bargain prices in the market and that’s a reason investor demand is coming off its peak.” The reduction in investor purchases could open the door for a larger percentage of first-time homebuyers, who in many cases couldn’t compete with the “all-cash” investor buyer who was willing to forego any inspections and settle quickly. However, it is expected that investor buyers and investment firms will maintain a significant role in real estate across the country due to a continued strong demand for rental units. The U.S. homeownership rate is at a 17and-a-half-year low and rental demand is high, with vacancy rates near multiyear lows. Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTOR® with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin, Md.

OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN

Deborah Price waits outside Seacrets on 49th Street Monday evening to pick up the next lot of customers. Price drove cabs for 13 years before joining “Seacrets Service.”

Everyone keeps asking how much the free shuttle service costs.” Even though the rides are free for passengers, Moore said it’s a good business move. “If you’ve got a 28-passenger bus, and each person spends $20 [at Seacrets], that’s more than worth it,” he said. The shuttle service will run throughout the winter, which he hopes will boost business in the off-season. “Parties get together at a neighborhood house and want to come… but don’t want to worry about driving home. It’ll really be a good incentive for them to possibly pick

Seacrets,” he said. The restaurant and nightspot already had a limo lane, largely unused until now. If Seacrets Service is a hit, Moore plans to expand his fleet and hire more drivers. “We’re transporting them to Jamaica. We put our wings out,” he said. Seacrets Service runs from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily, taking customers to Seacrets from anywhere in Ocean City, West Ocean City, Ocean Pines and Berlin, including other businesses. Call 410-5244900 to reserve a ride in advance or for as-soon-as-possible pick-ups.

per gallon in the last week to $3.59/g, according to gasoline price Web site GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Maryland during the past week, prices Sunday were 26.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has not moved during the last month and stands 22.3 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gas price limbo has continued for another week, with average prices across the United States virtually the same as they were a month ago,â&#x20AC;? said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opening week for football certainly brought more excitement than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen at the gas pump lately, but one thing is for surewith gas prices averaging 22-cents per gallon lower than last year, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of extra hot dogs and beer that can be consumed instead of being redirected into the tanks of American motorists.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the situation in Syria bears further monitoring, and hurricane season remains on the radar, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still seen prices continue to hold level. In fact, the cumulative yearly average for a gallon of gas stands at $3.57/gal, compared to one year ago when it was $3.62/gal, so while motorists feel this has been a bad year for gas prices, it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been as painful as 2012,â&#x20AC;?
