Petition on parking could halt metering Preliminary count reveals drive has 50 percent more signatures than required ZACK HOOPES ■ Staff Writer

BUSY, BUSY

OCEAN CITY TODAY/LISA CAPITELLI

For all the talk about whether crowds are bigger or smaller, the Boardwalk was packed on Sunday as Ocean City enters its prime weeks of the season.

(Aug. 2, 2013) It appears that Ocean City’s residents have spoken – or scribbled, as the case may be – against the addition of paid parking in the resort, as a petition to stay the controversial metering ordinance was submitted to City Hall this week. “We’re confident that we’re there, but we’ve told people that [the signatures] are not certified by the election board yet,” said petition drive organizer Vince Gisriel. “You always try to build in a 200 to 300 signature cushion to allow for errors,” Gisriel said. “But we’ve audited the sheets very closely ourselves before turning them over to the city.” The drive produced 1,770 signatures, according to the city’s preliminary review. Once the city’s Board of Election Supervisors verifies that the requisite number of registered voters have signed the petition, the town will be barred from enforcing the additional parking until the issue can be

put to referendum. “Legally, once they are in possession of those signatures, those meters will have to be bagged immediately and rendered ineffective until the voters say ‘yay’ or ‘nay,’” Gisriel said. The magic number of signatures is 1,226 – 40 percent of the number of voters who participated in the last municipal election, per the city’s charter. However, it will likely take some time for the town to independently verify each signature with the voter rolls. “There is no prescribed time frame,” said City Clerk Kelly Allmond. “It’ll take as long as it takes to get the ladies from the Board of Election Supervisors together and go through [the signatures].” Per the ordinance, the city has added Cale-brand electronic meters to the ocean block of 146th and 49th Streets, the stretch of 131st Street between Coastal Highway and Sinepuxent Avenue, and the west side of Philadelphia Avenue below the Route 50 Bridge. Meters would also go into the municipal lots at City Hall and the 65th Street Public Safety Building. Metering of the latter two lots has caused little disturbance, but there has been considerable public outcry about the metering of street parking, espeSee CITY on Page 4A

We know how to catch ’em, but that’s about it CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) Hundreds of anglers will arrive in Ocean City next week hoping to land a prize-winning fish in the 40th annual White Marlin Open tournament. Last year, almost 1,000 white marlin were released during the weeklong event and anglers seeking marlin, tuna, wahoo, shark and dolphin netted around $2.3 million in prize money.

But little is actually known about the lives of the tournament’s namesake fish. “For as much as we know about the fishing of these animals, the biology of these animals is pretty vague,” said John

Graves, chair of the fisheries department at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. White marlin start their lives somewhere near the Sargasso Sea. Though researchers track them, they can swim well

over 100 miles in a day, making pinpointing exact breeding grounds as yet unfeasible, Graves said. Traveling that far takes a lot of fuel, making marlin voracious eaters. “You’ve seen that hot dog eating contest on Coney Island? These fish would put those guys to shame,” Graves said. He’s pulled more than 20 market-sized squid from the stomach of a 50-pound marlin. See MARLIN on Page 3A

Marlin grow quickly–up to four feet in first year of their lives The fish grow quickly — up to four feet in the first year of their lives, Graves said. They likely reach maturity quickly, too, at around two or three years old, but aging marlin has also proved difficult. That’s because scientists use their spine fins to age them based on the number of rings they see, but after about age two, those rings disappear. Scientists do know that marlin can live around 20 years based on tagging projects, Graves said. Marlin migrate as far north as the Grand Banks in Newfoundland in the summer and retreat south or into the Atlantic Ocean’s core during colder months. Because they cross international lines, management of the fishery must also be at the international level, Graves said. White marlin stocks are around 15 percent of the virgin population — 50-80 percent below the number that would maximize their productivity, Graves said. “We have seen a big decrease in the abundance of these animals,” he said. As far as managing the fishery, “unless countries are doing this in concert, it’s going to have very little impact on the resource.” That’s partly why a failed petition from the Center for Biological Diversity to get white marlin added to the U.S. list of endangered or threatened species would have been a scant management tool, Graves said. Another reason is that stocks simply aren’t that low, said Ann Barse, a biology professor as Salisbury University. Barse and her students have taken samples from fish landed at the White Marlin Open on an off for 15 years. “The numbers now look better than they did before,” Barse said. A National Marine Fisheries Services law requiring U.S. anglers to use circle hooks in place of standard J Continued from Page 1A

hooks has helped marlin stocks, she said. The hooks tend to catch marlin in the corner of their mouths, rather than lodging in deep tissues, where they can cause more damage, Graves explained. In a study, six out of 20 fish died after being caught with J hooks and released, Graves said. In contrast, his team found that 100 percent of the marlin tracked survived past 10 days when caught with a circle hook and released. The commercial fishery also plays a role in determining marlin stocks, though. Those fisheries don’t target white marlin, but often catch them alongside tuna and other target species on their long lines. “It has probably had a pretty big effect on these animals,” Graves said. The United States has pushed for an international measure requiring marlin caught as bycatch on long lines to be released, which could have a big impact since more than 50 percent of those marlin are still alive when they’re pulled, Graves said. On a local scale, marline stocks seem to be growing, but weather has played a roll in numbers so far this year, Graves said. “They haven’t been as abundant in the catches yet this year” because the cool spring pushed the season back, he said, but warm currents could bring more of the fish for the tournament. Graves expects that it will be a good year for bigeye tuna at the tournament. “Lots of people fish for white marlin just because it’s very exciting,” Barse said. “It’s the excitement of the crowd and the competition” that draw thousands of anglers to the annual tournament. “They’re absolutely beautiful, so their biology fascinates people,” she said.

West OC robbery suspects linked to Pennsylvania robberies Pennsylvania police chief identified Derizzo as man who robbed PNC Bank NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) A Pennsylvania police chief is credited with identifying the man who robbed PNC Bank in West Ocean City last Tuesday. Just a few minutes past 9 a.m., Heath Andrew Derizzo, 36, passed a handwritten note to the teller. The note stated, “Put the money in the bag. Not bait clips. No alarms.” Then he held open a white and blue zippered bag for the teller to place the money in. Although the Maryland State Police press release issued later that morning stated that no money was given, the charging document states that the bank employee grabbed a large handful of bills, totaling $1,869, from the cash drawer and put them in the bag. Then the robber grabbed the note and the money and walked quickly out of the bank. The robbery was caught on the bank’s surveillance video and several of its still images were sent to law enforcement agencies in adjoining states. At about 1:30 p.m., the police chief of the Derry Township Pennsylvania Police

Department contacted Maryland State Police at the Berlin barrack. The chief identified Heath Derizzo and said Pennsylvania State Police were actively investigating several bank rob- Dale Mentzer beries that Derizzo committed. The chief sent several photographs from the robberies in Pennsylvania and those photographs clearly showed three to four unique tattoos on Derizzo’s arms. Heath Derizzo Those tattoos were identical to the tattoos on his arms that showed in the photos from the PNC Bank robbery. Maryland police also obtained photographs and reports of four bank robberies that Derizzo reportedly committed in Pennsylvania from July 11-19. He was also suspected of robbing Cihylik Farms in Northhampton County, Pa. The victim in that case told investigators that the suspect in the Pennsylvania bank robberies was one of the suspects who robbed her. That victim also identified Dale Mentzer as another suspect in the investigation. During that robbery, the men stole several items including women’s jeans size 6 and 8, white sports bra size 36C,

pink underwear size 10 and black socks. Local investigators contacted an informant, who had provided information to the Pennsylvania police chief, who confirmed that Derizzo was in the Ocean City area and staying at a hotel on the Boardwalk. They also learned that Derizzo was with Mentzer and Samantha Jo Henderson and that the three were traveling in a black 1994 Saturn with a Pennsylvania license plate. Members of the Maryland State Police Apprehension Team located the Saturn in a parking lot in Wicomico County. Inside were Mentzer, Henderson and another man, but not Derizzo. After learning where Mentzer and Derizzo were staying, police went to a Salisbury motel, where they executed a search and seizure warrant and located several items used during the commission of crimes. Those

items included the glasses worn by Derizzo during the bank robbery in West Ocean City, the note he displayed to the teller and the bank bag. After Mentzer and Derizzo were apprehended, Derizzo reportedly refused to answer questions, but Mentzer talked, although he did not confess to the robbery. He said that on the morning of July 23, he and Derizzo had gotten something to eat at a West Ocean City convenience store and then driven to the Food Lion on Route 611. Mentzer claimed he entered the grocery store while Derizzo stayed in the car. When he returned to the car, Derizzo was there, but said they needed to “get out of here.” Mentzer reportedly said he knew that Derizzo had robbed a bank and that Derizzo handed him approximately $600 to See MEN on Page 6A

Woman attacks man with knife after he keeps her from driving Victim tried to prevent drunk girlfriend from getting in car with toddler NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) A 32-year-old Pennsylvania woman was charged Tuesday with first-degree assault and other crimes after allegedly attacking a man she was dating with a knife. Sibyl Curran, of Coaldale, was invited to Ocean City by the man who was already vacationing in the resort with his family near 48th Street. He invited her to stay with them for the remainder of the week. She arrived with her 18-month-old baby and started drinking heavily, according to the charging document. Others in the unit went to bed, but she kept drinking and “carrying on,” according to that document. The man who invited her tried to get her to stop drinking, but an argument started and she decided to leave. He and his mother told her she was too intoxicated to drive, especially with her young child in the vehicle. They pleaded with her to go to bed, but she continued packing. When the man approached her, Cur-

ran, described in the charging document as 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 100 pounds, allegedly pulled out a black, folding knife, opened it and held it to the side of his neck. Another man in the unit grabbed her wrist and pushed her onto a bed. Eventually, he wrestled the knife away from her. Curran then grabbed her toddler and stormed out of the unit. When an Ocean City police officer arrived at the unit, the knife had been put on the dining room table. The officer talked to Curran outside the unit. She reportedly had difficulty completing her thoughts, but she said she felt threatened when the people in the unit would not permit her to leave. After arresting Curran, the officer searched her and found a glass bottle containing three oxycodone tablets. She said she did not have a prescription for the pills. In addition to being charged with firstdegree assault, Curran was charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, possession of a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. When she went before a District Court commissioner, she was ordered to have no contact with the victim pending resolution of the case and she must not possession or consume alcohol.

Police SUV in serious crash going through 28th St. intersection Officer was against signal, had lights and siren on; city buying more Tahoes ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) In an unfortunate coincidence of events, City Council approved a purchase order for nine new Chevy Tahoes for the Ocean City Police Department Tuesday afternoon, at almost the exact same time that, further uptown, one of those same vehicles was involved in a high-speed collision. The crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of 28th Street and Coastal Highway. An OCPD Tahoe, heading north to respond to another incident, went through the red light and struck the driver’s side of a a Lexus sedan that was traveling east-to-west on 28th Street, apparently unaware of the police vehicle’s approach. “The officer was responding, with lights and sirens, to the Route 90 Bridge,” said OCPD Public Information Officer Mike Levy. “We had an accident there and had to close down a lane temporarily. He approached the intersection, and the other vehicle was

OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES

After being struck by a police SUV on Tuesday, the driver of the white sedan had to be extracted by firefighters cutting the roof off his vehicle. The OCPD officer was heading north on Coastal Highway, while the sedan was crossing from east to west on 28th Street.

traveling from the east side.” The exact speed of the crash is yet unknown, but the impact pushed the sedan into the southbound lane of

Coastal Highway and caved in most of the vehicle’s left side. Fortunately, off-duty EMS personnel from the Ocean City Fire Depart-

ment were nearby and rendered immediate aid to the driver. Due to the damage to the vehicle however, he could not be extracted until the OCFD’s Heavy Rescue unit was able to cut the roof off of the car. According to city reports, the driver of the sedan was taken to University Shock Trauma in Baltimore with a fractured pelvis. The OCPD driver was treated and released at Atlantic General Hospital for minor injuries. During Tuesday’s City Council meeting — endeding at roughly the same time the accident occurred – the council approved a purchase order for nine new Tahoes for the OCPD. The cost of the four marked vehicles was $29,539 each, while another five unmarked Tahoes will run $28,915 apiece. The order also included a new oneton Ford van to replace the ‘paddy wagon’ which was involved in a crash earlier this summer. Councilman Joe Mitrecic cast the only dissenting vote against the purchase. “I’m still opposed to buying Tahoes to patrol and monitor this town,” Mitrecic said. While the OCPD has maintained a small number of four-wheel-drive SUVs for many years, mainly for beach See SUVs on Page 9A

SUVs better given computers, ticket gear, OC police say operations, the department has recently begun to introduce two-wheeldrive Tahoes, designed for road pursuit, as a replacement for the traditional Ford Crown Victoria patrol car. While the Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle or ‘PPV’ is bulkier than the Crown Victoria sedan, it offers considerably more cabin space for the increasing amount of equipment officers have in their cars. All OCPD vehicles now have dash-mounted laptop computers, and most have an automated, electronic ticketing system and printer as well. “Due to the mounting of equipment and the configuration of the sedan, it’s just easier and more efficient to put all the electronics in the Tahoes,” Levy said. He doubted, however, that the crash would’ve been less severe if a vehicle other than a Tahoe was involved. “The Crown Victorias are almost as heavy,” Levy said. “Once you’re dealing with a certain speed, the difference in weight isn’t going to make that much of a difference. But we’ll obviously know more once the investigation is complete.”

Police say a scooter operator veered into a traffic lane and was run over by the rear wheels of a passing box truck. The operator’s injuries were severe, and police are unsure if he will survive.

(Aug. 2, 2013) A brutal accident Wednesday afternoon on Coastal Highway near 84th Street has a scooter operator’s life hanging in the balance. “We’re looking at multiple lifethreatening injuries,” Ocean City Police Department Public Information Officer Mike Levy said. “The operator is still alive, so it’s not a fatality yet.

Scooter accidents down 60 percent from 2012 in extremely critical condition.â&#x20AC;? The collision occurred just after 3 p.m. Wednesday in the southbound lane of Coastal Highway, between 83rd and 84th Streets. Police believe that the rider of the scooter, which appeared to be a Honda Ruckus, attempted to pass a bicycle that was also in the far right lane. The operator apparently went too far to the left, however, and entered the third lane of traffic, colliding with the right side of a passing box truck and being crushed under its rear wheels. Police also believe the rider was under the influence of alcohol and that the driver of the box truck was not at fault. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one has been arrested, and there are no charges pending at this point,â&#x20AC;? Levy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the incident is still under investigation.â&#x20AC;? Bystanders described the scene as

â&#x20AC;&#x153;grisly.â&#x20AC;? Even after the victim had been put into an ambulance, a pile of bloody clothing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cut off the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body by paramedics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; remained on the highway near the wrecked scooter. Police had initial difficulty identifying the operator, given his severe condition, Levy said. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collision was the 25th scooter accident in the resort this year, Levy said. That number is considerably down, however, from last year. Scooter accidents from January to July of 2012 numbered over 70, according to Levyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have also been no fatalities this year, either pedestrian or traffic-related, which is an improvement,â&#x20AC;? Levy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if this one will become our first.â&#x20AC;? Public concern over the number of accidents involving scooters during the summer of 2011 caused to city to enact

an ordinance in the spring of 2012, requiring all scooter rental businesses to provide a practice area for riders and adhere to strict guidelines for making sure that riders are capable on the machines. The scooter in Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident was privately owned and was not a rental, Levy said. The presence of scooters in the resort has been down this year, due largely to a new state law that requires scooter operators to carry insurance. Policies are extremely expensive, compared to the low cost of scooters themselves, with annual premiums often out-stripping the value of the vehicle itself. As such, the number of scooter rental shops in the resort has dwindled from 20 last year to only eight this year, according to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning department.

Another officer found the car in the Park and Ride facility in West Ocean City. Looking through one of the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s windows, the officer could see the handle of a machete. Jenkins said he had lied about not having his identification because it

A search of the vehicle revealed more marijuana, four marijuana cigars, a grinder and an electronic scale, which one of Jenkins’ friends said he had because he did not want to get ripped off when buying weed, according to the charging document. Police charged all three men with possession of a concealed dangerous weapon, but the District Court Commission found probable cause for that charge against only Jenkins and not the other two. Police also charged all three men with possession of marijuana, but the court commissioner found no probable cause to detain any of them on that charge.

Case pending

The owner of Beached Paws Pet Services, featured in last week’s edition of Ocean City Today, has a criminal case pending in Worcester County District Court. Ferrell Santacroce of the self-run business is charged with credit card theft, two counts of charging less than $100 on another person’s credit card and a theft scheme of less than $1,000, all on July 6, according to Maryland court records.

A summons was issued on July 15 and served on July 17, the records show. Personnel at the district courthouse in Snow Hill verified that Santacroce is scheduled to attend a preliminary inquire on Aug. 9, when the court will decide if sufficient evidence exists to take her to trial.

Intent to distribute

After stopping a vehicle for speeding on Route 13 in the area of Old Virginia Road on July 25, a deputy with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office determined the driver, Marquise Obryan Drummond, 27, of Gargatha, Va, was wanted by the Salisbury Police Department and had a suspended Virginia driver’s license. After arresting Drummond, the deputy found a plastic bag containing cocaine, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Drummond was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of paraphernalia and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute it.

Commissioner Louise Gulyas on road to recovery after serious fall Son found her on floor of condo Sat. morning; she fell 3:30 p.m. day before NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) If Worcester County Commissioner Louise Gulyas has another fall like the one she had last Friday, she should not be waiting for hours before help arrives. “She can wear [a Life Alert bracelet] or I’m going to have it implanted inside her,” her son, Thom Gulyas, said Tuesday. Gulyas had found his mother on the floor of her downtown Ocean City condominium Saturday morning at about

9:30 a.m. She had been lying on the floor since about 3:30 p.m. the previous day because she had fallen on her dining room floor, hit her head and could not get up. Louise Gulyas Thom had gone to check on his mother because she had planned to go to Lutherville with his wife to visit his sister, Laura, who is recovering from surgery. As he neared her door, he could hear her calling for help. Louise Gulyas was taken to Atlantic General Hospital and then to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. That evening at about 9:30 p.m., Thom Gulyas notified close friends and family members of her fall. Word spread

fast and at least one church congregation was praying for her quick recovery the next morning. Gulyas said he was grateful for the response. “I believe in the power of prayer,” he said. On Sunday, Bud Church, president of the Worcester County Commissioners visited her at the hospital and reported that she was in good spirits and she had “full movement of her legs and arms.” The next day, Monday, she celebrated her 79th birthday in the hospital. “We took everything to her room,” Thom Gulyas said. “Everything” included a cheesecake from Rosenfeld’s Jewish Deli, a new business in Ocean City. Because of the

ed Lots t i Limront le! df ilab n o P Ava

hospital setting, the cheesecake was not adorned with candles. It was determined later that his mother would not need surgery because her spinal vertebrae C2 had cracked in a straight line and her spinal column was still in a straight alignment, Thom Gulyas said Tuesday. Later that day, Gulyas left the hospital and was admitted to to Health South in Salisbury for rehabilitation. She will be wearing a neck brace for about three months and is expected to miss only a couple of the county commissioners’ meetings. For more than a year, Gulyas has been walking with the aid of a walker. A year ago, in July 2012, she had double bypass surgery and a heart valve repair. In December, a pacemaker was installed. This was not Gulyas’ first fall. A couple of years ago, she tripped on a rug in her condominium and fell, injuring her knee. She has been a commissioner, representing Ocean City, since 1998. In late May, she received the Governor’s Leadership in Aging Award at the Sixth Annual Governor’s Leadership in Aging Award luncheon because of her advocacy efforts and support of senior citizens.

AUGUST 2, 2013

NANCY POWELL  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) Three area entrepreneurs are encouraging people to support small, locally owned, independent establishments and farmers markets during the month of August. Christie McDowell, co-owner/operator of The Good Farm, an organic produce farm at Mariner’s Country Down just outside Berlin, started the local movement in 2010 when she went one month without going in a grocery store or big box store. Bryan Brushmiller, owner of Burley Oak Brewery in Berlin, read about McDowell’s experiment and tried it himself in 2011. Robin Tomaselli, owner of Baked Dessert Café & Gallery in Berlin, also jumped on board and tried it. This year, all three are promoting it. “We all believe that buying locally supports our community,” McDowell said Monday. “And I like it because it promotes greater diversity.” “I would rather see money go to small businesses,” she said. “Small businesses have a vested interest in the community. Bigger stores are looking at profit and loss statements.” McDowell, who also runs the Ocean Pines Farmers Market, believes it is important to support the local economy. At that farmers market, vendors from the Ocean Pines and Berlin area are selected first, vendors outside those areas, but in Worcester County, are selected next and vendors from neighboring counties are selected after them, but only if the product cannot be found in Worcester. The Buy Local Challenge officially started Thursday, Aug. 1, but people may begin participating at any time. All they need to do is to stay out of big box stores for the rest of the month and try to buy their food and other items at smaller, locally owned businesses. “It becomes a challenge, but if you really try hard, you see what our local economy really has and where there are gaps,” McDowell said. “Every dollar spent is a vote for the kind of community we want to live in.” Tomaselli of Baked Dessert Café & Gallery on Bay Street in Berlin purchases local ingredients to help the local economy and to ensure the freshest products while reducing waste. She considered her business to be green because she recycles, uses compostable packing when available and composts the kitchen waste to support the Harvest Project at the Berlin library.

(Aug. 2, 2013) As a warm-up to the month-long Buy Local Challenge in August, Christie McDowell and others encouraged participation in the statewide Buy Local Challenge from July 20-28. That event was promoted by the Maryland Department of Agriculture to encourage people to buy local produce and to celebrate what local farmers contributed to the food supply. People were asked to incorporate at least one Maryland-grown or raised product into their family meals every day for at least a week. With the various farmer’s markets in the area, that should not be difficult to do, supporters agree. Benefits of buying locally, accord-

ing to the Department of Agriculture, include environmental reasons. It keeps land open, in production, and requires less fuel for transportation, and therefore causes less pollution. The MDA also states that local produce is better for consumers because food that travels less time and distance holds more of its nutrients. Local food also supports local economies because farmers purchase feed and materials from local businesses, reinvesting in the community. They also add to the sense of community. Farmers markets, for example, provide excellent venues for community gatherings.

Attendance nearly zero at county redistricting hearing in SH people might have to drive from Berlin to Snow Hill or Pocomoke to vote.â&#x20AC;? Bud Church was aware of that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major concern,â&#x20AC;? Church said. Voters in other districts could also be driving long distances to cast ballots. Commissioner Virgil Shockley, who represents District Four, the Western District, said his constituents who live near the Somerset County line would have to drive about 18 miles to vote in Snow Hill. From one end of his district to the other end is 34 miles, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Common sense would say add a couple of polling places,â&#x20AC;? Church said.

Rising tide of federal flood insurance premiums threaten resort Local leaders seeking to have highest rate zone moved to new dune line ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) With new rate increases set to kick in for October, the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condo market may be getting washed out by flood insurance, unless some local businessmen succeed in lobbying the federal government to modify the zoning system for the National Flood Insurance Program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get this flood zone change, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very expensive for condominiums in particular,â&#x20AC;? said Reese Cropper of Insurance Management Group, one of the resort areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest providers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve told the various leaders and congressmen that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve solicited is that if the premiums continue to increase, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a problem with the real estate market.â&#x20AC;? The NFIP was reauthorized by the federal legislature last year for a period of five years, despite the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasing financial vulnerability. But in order to get the system back on sound footing, the reauthorization mandated rate increases that will, in theory, help to make the program more self-sustaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program as a whole has not been able to carry itself based on the premiums paid in versus the payments given out, basically since Hurricane Katrina,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the federal government said was that, if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be in the insurance business, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to take those areas that have higher risk and charge them a different rate than those areas that have lower risk.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way all insurance works, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fair way of trying to change the program to get it back on its feet,â&#x20AC;? Cropper added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been done that way from the beginningâ&#x20AC;Śbut at this point, I think the way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hitting the ocean areas is too hard, too fast.â&#x20AC;? Since the inception of the NFIP in 1968, the Federal Emergency Manage-

ment Agency has been authorized to provide flood insurance to those communities that commit to studying and mitigating their flood risk. This is done through the creation of Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), which indicate what areas have greater danger of high water and should thus pay larger premiums for their insurance. The FIRMs also allow FEMA to designate Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), in which flood insurance purchase is mandatory, and where a Community Rating System (CRS) is used to determine how well a community has undertaken measures to reduce flood damage. Ocean City adopted the program and FEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines relatively early. The town was first flood mapped on June 6, 1971, and on July 2, 1973, the town adopted its Flood Plain Ordinance to conform to FEMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mitigation standards for the SFHA that encompasses most of the island. Activities include elevating homes and exposed utilities, as well as the extensive beach replenishment efforts, in which the city shares the cost of sand dune replacement with the county and state. This has allowed Ocean City to receive the highest CRS rating, and a subsequent 15 percent discount on all flood insurance in the resort.

Despite these efforts, however, the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oceanfront properties will still bear the brunt of the coming rate hikes. The steepest premium increases are set for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;V7â&#x20AC;&#x2122; FIRM zones, defined as coastal areas with risk of high-velocity impact damage from wind and water. Amongst Cropperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clients, residential properties in these areas are averaging a 12 to 15 percent rate hike, he estimated, versus an 8 to 12 percent hike for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; FIRM zones elsewhere in the resort, which are considered to have less impact damage risk. Further, the rate of increase rises with property value. The NFIP re-authorization also mandates a phase-out of properties with grandfathered rates, built before the introduction of the FIRM system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bigger buildings are going to be hit worse,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when I look at the flood zones, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;V7â&#x20AC;&#x2122; areas are carrying a much bigger burden all around.â&#x20AC;? The V7 area in Ocean City encompasses property east of what was considered, at the time of mapping, to be the natural dune line, which was vulnerable to tidal flooding. Since that mapping, however, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive artificial dune project has been completed and has successful buffered oceanfront properties in multiple storms since, including

Sandy this past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a natural dune line here in Ocean City, and in the building boom of the 1970s, a lot of the buildings were built on top of or in front of that line,â&#x20AC;? Cropper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now gone and built a man-made dune, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my understanding that the government will not accept that as being a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;formidable mitigationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that would allow the flood zone to be changed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we want to see happen is to have the V7 zone pushed out toward the beach, and have the dunes accepted as protection,â&#x20AC;? said Igor Conev of Mann Properties, who manages condo buildings up and down the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coastline. Ocean City is due to be remapped this year under the NFIP reauthorization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before those maps are addressed, we want to make sure our dunes are taken into account,â&#x20AC;? Conev said. Some condo units are paying over $2,400 annually for coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When buyers do their math on what these units are going to cost themâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge decision-making difference,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to lobby our congressmen and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We need your help. The dune system has proved itself many times before here, and we want you to accept that and move that zone back out to the beach,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Cropper said.

OC Planning Dept. takes over building permits, inspections ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer

ffo or reserv rvations call: 410 524-9433 www w.art artleeague ag eofo focceanc an ity y.orrg g

(Aug. 2, 2013) Although local property owners and contractors will likely not notice the change, the city’s Building and Construction Inspection division was reorganized under the Planning and Zoning Department this month, at the same time that the city’s annual planning report indicates that only 20 new residential permits were issued for 2012. The annual report, a state requirement, was presented to City Council this week before submission to the Maryland Department of Planning. This year was the first in which the report’s format was standardized into a yes-or-no rubric, much like a tax return. The gist of the process, according to City Planning and Community Development Director Matt Margotta, is allow the state to know what a given jurisdiction’s capacity is for future build-out. This growth, and remaining capacity, is typically measured by the number of new residential projects introduced, which was only 20 in the resort last year. “If there’s an expansion of residential units in a jurisdiction, the thought is that that’ going to have an impact on your commercial expansion as well,” Margotta said.

These figures then help determine how much public investment will have to be made in the future to allow for growth. “If we color outside the lines, do they [the state] still know what’s going on and what we need?” Margotta said. At the same time the city’s Planning and Zoning Department is working on this analysis, it will also be assuming control of the city’s building permitting and inspection system, which was previously a sub-division of the town’s Engineering Department. “My predecessor, Jesse Houston, had the building and planning and code enforcement guys all within his department before,” Margotta said. “At some point it was decided to have the building department move over to engineering.” Although the city’s engineering staff provide the technical basis for what the building division enforces, Margotta noted that much of what building inspectors do is linked in with the enforcement of property and zoning codes, which are handled by his department. “This is kind of the natural evolution of the organization,” Margotta said. “There are things that we do similarly, in terms of looking at the code and enforcing the code. It’s different books, but it’s all kind of the same stuff in terms of application.”

(Aug. 2, 2013) The spread of shrubbery, fountains, flowers and statues lining the beachfront and hugging condos on the 142nd Street ocean block was a beautification project 15 years in the making. Mostly a solo effort by 142nd Street resident Avery Taylor, the project has spread into most nooks surrounding the block’s condo complexes and is a draw for visitors. “You just don’t see this kind of thing at the beach,” Taylor said. A hobby gardener, he chose the plants and designed the gardens. After retiring from working with marble surfacing in Baltimore, the project has helped keep him busy, Taylor said. “It motivates you to keep going when people tell you they like it,” he said, and he gets that feedback daily. Hawaiian Village Condominium and other surrounding complexes funded the project, but Taylor remains the main caretaker. He rinses the saltwater from the plants and sweeps sand off the street daily. Around 9 p.m., fountains, flags, dolphins and palm trees illuminate the block. Visible from Coastal Highway, they’re the crowning piece of the project, Taylor said. The effort has helped draw families to 142nd Street, he said, and children’s approval is “the most important part.” “This is the reason they come back,” Taylor said. The project also features benches and an outdoor shower for visitors to rinse their feet.

City allows giveaways during beach event ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) The Ocean City Council was far more forgiving this week to tiny sunglasses than it was two months ago to teeny weenies, approving a request to allow sample shades and other tchotchkes to be given away during Quiet Storm Surf Shop’s beach surf movies. Local promoter Brad Hofmann, who organizes the events, put in a request to be allowed to give away Quiet Storm logo apparel like T shirts, key chains, and kids’ sunglasses during the showings, which run every Saturday night during the summer season. Hofmann uses an inflatable screen and projector to show vintage surf and skateboarding films, as well as footage from local video artists, outside of Quiet Storm’s store on the Boardwalk at North Division Street. “The response has been great. We’ve had a lot of families coming out. It’s a great, all-ages sort of thing,” Hoffman said. However, there has always been some tension amongst Boardwalk business owners over allowing private events to distribute items that could compromise the sale of those same items elsewhere on the boards. In June, the city denied a request by the Dew Tour to give out sample hot dogs from 7-Eleven, one of the tour’s

main sponsors, on the grounds that food distribution on the festival grounds would cut away from the expected economic stimulus to nearby Boardwalk eateries. “There are merchants on the Boardwalk who will tell you that if [customers] have your free T shirt, then they won’t go buy another one somewhere else,” Councilwoman Margaret Pillas told Hoffman. “It is a sore spot on the Boardwalk as far as giving stuff out,” agreed Council President Lloyd Martin, who said he feared that offering giveaway rights to Quiet Storm would have other merchants expect that they could do the same. “Is there any way that the person next door…would want to be involved in [the giveaways] as well? It is a public beach,” Martin said. “Bill [Dreibelbis, Quiet Storm owner] is the one paying the costs and fees to hold the movies, so it would be difficult to invite other people into the same event,” Hoffman said. “They’re not items that would be available elsewhere on the Boardwalk, they’re Quite Storm-branded apparel. But something like Tony’s Pizza obviously does not compete with Quiet Storm, for instance, so it would be easy to incorporate them.” “[Dreibelbis] is the one paying to bring people down there,” Pillas agreed. “The merchants are already able to take advantage of what he’s doing.”

Some jurisdictions going about implementing tax wrong way Fees could help reduce development’s negative impact on water quality ALEXANDER PYLES  The Daily Record Newswire (Aug. 2, 2013) A Maryland policy think tank says new stormwater fees imposed by Baltimore and nine counties could theoretically help reduce development’s negative impact on Chesapeake Bay water quality. But the way some jurisdictions are imposing the fee — which researchers say is really a “Pigouvian tax,” meaning a charge intended to counter negative impacts of certain activities — are negating the mitigating value of what’s been derided by opponents as a “rain tax.”

Some jurisdictions, for example, have disincentives of a Pigouvian tax.” based each homeowner’s quarterly fee on Thomas A.

the state, causing Greater Baltimore Committee President Donald C. Fry to proclaim this spring that the policy was “not an example of government partnering with business.” Even after proposed fees were reduced by the City Council, the impact on Baltimore residents and businesses was greater than in the counties that surround the city. “By setting the tax rate higher in the [city] than in any surrounding counties, Baltimore city is effectively incentivizing further development in the Maryland suburbs and sabotaging its own efforts at improving the bay — or rejuvenating the city,” the report argues. If Baltimore went about implementing its fee in the wrong way, Carroll County — in an act of defiance — may be acting in the right way, Firey said. The county has refused to impose a fee, instead reallocating money already being collected from taxpayers. “That’s encouraging, because they’re trying to prioritize,” Firey said. “We feel that Annapolis doesn’t have enough respect for the things that we try to do privately with our money, and we really need Annapolis to do a better job of prioritizing things that are important” instead of raising taxes or fees. The stormwater fee was mandated by House Bill 987, which was approved by the General Assembly in 2012 in response to federal clean water requirements. Money collected by Baltimore and nine counties is supposed to go toward stormwater treatment upgrades to reduce pollutants that run into the Chesapeake Bay when it rains. State property and federal property is not subject to the fee, but lawmakers and Gov. Martin O’Malley are considering changing the law so that the state would contribute some money to stormwater upgrades. Ocean City imposes a stormwater impact fee on new projects, but has yet to develop an annual fee system for all properties. Berlin, meanwhile, has done that, with a small flat fee charged residential properties, while the fee for commercial properties is based on the square footage of its total impervious surface.

(Aug. 2, 2013) Combines are a familiar sight on the Eastern Shore, moving purposefully and efficiently through fields of grain, corn and soy beans, offloading their harvest into waiting trucks. But seeing a combine from afar is very different from being close enough to touch one. The 15th annual Blessing of the Combines, held in Snow Hill on Saturday, will have combines parked on Green Street (after a parade including antique tractors down Route 12), thanks to the owners of these multi-thousand dollar machines. Admission is free. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. Exhibits and displays will be set up along Green, Pearl and Bank streets, including a Petting Barnyard, face painting, a soy bean pit, a slide and a moon bounce, with additional activities for children by Lollipop the Clown. Hayrides, carriage and pony rides will be available. The Program Stage will feature Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Country Crossroads before and Too Far Gone after the arrival of the Parade of

Combines. Master of Ceremonies Steve Hales will signal the beginning of a brief program, featuring keynote speaker Jim Perdue and Combine Blesser Rev. Seth Nelson. Festival food vendors on Bank Street join Harvest Moon, Miss Patticake, The Emporium, The American Legion and The Palette in offering a wide selection of delicious treats. Further down Bank Street, near Scales and Tales, along with the Worcester County Emergency Services Special Operations Trailer and the Maryland State Police Rescue Boat, craft vendors compliment Snow Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shops. There will also be a pie-eating contest and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tractor , as well as a dunking booth. At the river, pontoon boat cruises are available. The Wheels That Heal Car Club will host a car show along the Pocomoke River. At 3 p.m., the festival ends as the combines leave Green Street. At 3:30 p.m. the Lawn Mower Tractor Pull will be held at Preston Motors Snow Hill Auto Body.

Season’s poor waves temper need for new surf beach agreement Compromise system to expand surf beach works well, but is rarely needed ZACK HOOPES  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) Although a thus-far flat surf season has not put it into action very often, the new compromise system for surf beach modification brokered earlier this year has been used without any major problems, according to local surfers and the Ocean City Beach Patrol. “It’s only been three or four days that we’ve done it so far,” said Beach Patrol Lt. Ward Kovacs. “From my perspective, it’s really been the same.” “It’s been pretty much status quo so far,” agreed Sgt. Tim Uebel. “We really haven’t had to adjust them.” Proper surfboards – those with fins or those more than 54 inches long - are prohibited on city beaches from the hours of 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and along Boardwalk-adjacent beaches from May 1 to Sept. 30. During those times, the city currently has a rotating surfing beach schedule that limits summer daytime surfboard use to two select blocks of beach, which change daily, as well as the southern half of the

The expansion of the surf beaches, however, has been rarely used given that surfers’ demand is low. The water has been cold, and the swells not so great. “It’s been a weird season so far,” said Lee Gerachis, owner of Malibu’s Surf Shop. “We haven’t had a ton of surf this summer…but I think it was a great gesture on the part of the city. They’ve made an effort to extend the beach when the waves are of any consequence.”

FIRST PERSON

No matter what anyone says, this is a wonderful place to be (Aug. 2, 2013) This is what our community really is... On Sunday, July 14, my husband, Steve Falck, lost his four-year battle with Multiple System Atrophy. When Steve was diagnosed in 2009 with MSA, which destroys all of your motor skills, we had no idea about the journey we were about to take, but we knew from that very first day that we would not be alone. On Sunday, July 21, we held a celebration of life service in his honor and we were reminded again how incredible this community really is. We knew how lucky we were to spend the last 41 years living in this wonderful place (Berlin and Ocean City). We knew we had friends who became family and strangers who became friends and caregivers. Our family and friends, too many to name, helped in keeping Steve at home. The visits, the food and wine, the laughter and tears kept us going. When Steve was diagnosed in March 2012 with 4th stage cancer, the obstacles grew larger and so did the support from so many. Dr. William Greer, (one of the most compassionate men I know) Wendy Fitzgerald and their staff became our life support and heroes. Dr. Preeti Yonker and staff gave Steve the strength to continue to fight the battles even when we knew he was losing the war. The staff at Atlantic General Hospital, where he spent months and months, gave him more time to live. We opened our home to the nurses and therapists from Chesapeake Health South and they opened their hearts to us. Our caregivers, Josie and Renee, from Thomas Patient Care and the V.A. made our day to day

so much better with laughter and love. Martin and Kathleen Weinstein and their crew at Eastern Shore Physical Therapy kept him moving longer than we thought possible. The guys from the Berlin Fire Department rescued us in so many ways. Steve was a surfer all of his life. This disease tried to put an end to that, but his surfing buddies helped him keep going. They created a special board and gave him a helping hand into the ocean even when he couldn’t walk. When his other passion, coaching girls lacrosse, was threatened too, he never gave up. Even when he had to use a walker to get on the field, he told his girls, “if I fall, just pick me up and laugh with me.” They visited him in the hospital and at home when he could no longer make it on the field, which thrilled him. He taught them more than the game of lacrosse; he taught them how to accept and live with a tremendous disability and to do so with humor, grace and determination. We learned how difficult it is for people to see their friend and peer slipping away daily. But the love and support we received was wonderful, whether it was one visit, a card or call or daily visits, food and hugs and many prayers. Seeing the support Steve received over the years, whether it was from his softball or sailing friends, parents from the lacrosse team, or people he built houses for, we knew that his celebration of life service would have to be somewhere with lots of seats, but also somewhere that meant something to him. In 1972, I started teaching art at Worcester Country School in Berlin.

Steve coached baseball and girls lacrosse and our daughters, Blair and Brooke, received an amazing education there. Dr. Barry Tull and the staff opened the school and their hearts to our family that day and we knew that we had found the perfect place. What we could never have imagined was seeing more than 900 people there, in island attire, Hawaiian shirts and flip flops, who laughed and cried and relived many wonderful moments with us.

Looking back on that day, I am so proud to have been Steve’s wife, and even more proud to be a part of this community. They gave and gave so much to us that the pain we suffered was so much easier to face. We can never thank everyone enough. We will always be grateful to this wonderful place that we are lucky enough to call home. Patty Falck Blair and Joseph Parsons Brooke and Bob Hahn

Lady anglers stars of show for ‘Heels and Reels’ tourney LIZ LANE ■ Intern

PHOTO COURTESY BERLIN LITTLE LEAGUE

The Berlin All-Stars hold a banner after winning the Little League Maryland State Tournament on Thursday, July 25. It is the third state title for the team, which has advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Region Little League Tournament in Bristol, Conn. Competition begins Aug. 3.

Berlin All-Star squad captures third state crown Boys go undefeated during tournament LIZ LANE ■ Intern (Aug. 2, 2013) The Berlin All-Stars 1112-year-old team captured its third Little League Maryland State title last Thursday when they won 5-1 over Brunswick (District 2 champions). Berlin has advanced to the Mid-Atlantic Region Little League Tournament in Bristol, Conn., which begins today, Friday. The All-Stars team is scheduled to go up against New Jersey tonight in the first game of the tournament, which takes place Aug. 2-11. The same Berlin team advanced to the finals of the regional tournament as 10-year-olds in 2011. “We’ve been in a similar position before so we know how to navigate a weeklong tournament,” said Manager Cameron McDonough. “This year will be better and we’re confident.” This chance at the regional title did not come easy. After many close games in the state tournament, held in Arbutus, Md., July 20-26, McDonough said their last game against Brunswick was “tight.” Zack Pletcher pitched the first two in-

nings and only made one error. Brunswick’s only run came in the second inning. Hayden Snelsire sent a double into right field in the top of the third and was moved to third base by a single from Tristan McDonough. McDonough also stole second. Billy Wheatley hit a ground ball scoring Snelsire to tie the game 1-1. Matt Kinsey hit a base-clearing double to give Berlin a 3-1 lead. Wes Powell sent a tworun home run over the center field wall and secured the 5-1 victory for Berlin. McDonough pitched the last four innings, only allowing Brunswick one hit as he struck out 11 batters. “It was a wonderful feeling,” the manager said. “Our pitching and defense was absolutely beautiful.” Berlin (District 8 champions) played four games in the state tournament against Maryland Little League teams. The local team outscored Bethesda (District 7 champions) 4-3, earned a 12-2 victory over Elkton (District 5 champions), shut out Conococheague (District 1 champions) 2-0 and in the title game, the Berlin boys took down Brunswick (District 2 champions) 5-1. The All-Stars remained undefeated during the entire double-elimination competition. If Berlin wins the regional title, the

team will advance to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., which takes place Aug. 15-25. “It’s interesting, there’s been a lot of attention on [the tournament] with the potential to play on ESPN,” said McDonough. “It’s fun for the kids and they love it. At the same time, we have to make sure we’re keeping focus, and it can be tough. We’ve worked hard and played hard, which is the reason we got this attention.” McDonough said balancing work and play during the tournament is key. The Little League Baseball and Softball organization schedules activities for the teams to boost and keep up morale. McDonough said the team is looking forward to a field trip to ESPN in the near future. Between the state and regional tournaments, Berlin has been recognized. The Washington Nationals honored the Maryland and Virginia state champions on the field before their Sunday, July 28, game against the New York Mets. Nationals’ outfielder Bryce Harper autographed baseballs for the two teams and visited with the players. “Oh, that was a big deal,” said McDonough. “It was impressive to see a 20year-old be that giving with his time. See BERLIN on Page 41A

(Aug. 2, 2013) Female anglers of all ages were scheduled to begin fishing today, Friday, in the first day of the Ocean City Marlin Club’s fifth annual “Heels and Reels” Ladies Tournament. “We think of fishing tournaments as a group of guys out their and a cooler full of beer but this gets the ladies involved,” said Frank Pettolina, president of the Ocean City Marlin Club and codirector of the tournament with Amanda Shick. “It’s a big day on the water in the summer when they’re just having fun with it.” Anglers will fish one of two days: Friday or Saturday, Aug. 3. Weigh-ins will take place both days from 5-7 p.m. at Sunset Marina in West Ocean City. A portion of the entry fee will be donated to the Marlin Club Auxiliary’s Bertha Holloway Scholarship Fund for Worcester County high school students who plan to attend college or a trade school. An awards banquet is scheduled for Sunday from 6:30-9 p.m. Anglers who reel in the three heaviest tuna and dolphin will win prize money. First, second and third place in the billfish release division will also be awarded prize money. There is also a junior angler division. Pettolina said he is “hoping for good weather, turnout and fishing,” and also said that last year’s results were “absolutely spectacular.” In 2012, according to catch reports, a total of 114 white marlin and one blue marlin were released during the competition. Twenty-eight boats carried female anglers offshore for the competition, and a total of $29,250 was awarded to the winners. “A couple boats probably didn’t even turn in their catch reports because there were boats with 10, 11 and 12 releases and they knew they wouldn’t win,” Pettolina said after the 2012 tournament. The Ravaganza crew threw back 12 whites to win the release division and $10,260. Anglers aboard Reel Joy released 11 white marlin, good for second place and $2,376. The Reelentless team cut 10 whites loose to finish in third place. The group was awarded $1,584. About eight to 10 female anglers competing in the tournament caught and released their first white marlin. For more information, call 410-2131613 or visit www.ocmarlinclub.com.

White Marlin Open marks 40 years in ‘13; event begins Mon. LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Aug. 2, 2013) The excitement is building as boat captains, their crews and spectators await the start of the 40th annual White Marlin Open. Competition will begin Monday and continue through Friday, Aug. 9. On Monday, Jim Motsko, director and founder of the tournament, said early registration compared to 2012, was up by about five or six boats. Thought most anglers wait until the final days to register so they can keep an eye on the forecast, Motsko said more than 65 percent of the boats traditionally return to compete each year. Final registration will take place at Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street on Saturday, noon to 5 p.m., and Sunday, beginning at noon. The base entry fee is

$1,200 per boat, which makes teams eligible for $50,000 in guaranteed prize money. There is no limit to the number of anglers on each boat. There are 18 added entry divisions which range in cost from $50 to $5,000 to enter. An overwhelming majority, about 95 percent, of the teams sign up for at least one calcutta. The more calcuttas entered, the greater the possible return. To enter every pool (16) for boats 37 feet LOA (length overall) and larger, costs $15,950, not including the base entry fee. For boats 36 feet LOA and smaller, the cost is $17,950 to enter into all 18 calcuttas. There are two additional calcuttas for boats 36 feet LOA and smaller: Level SBW: Small Boat Heaviest White Marlin Winner Take All and Level SBT: Small Boat Heaviest Tuna Winner Take All. Both were added last year.

It takes a combination of luck and skill to catch a white marlin. First, captains and anglers have to know how to find them. From that point on, there is a fair amount of luck involved in whose bait draws the interest of a big fish. Anyone can get lucky and that is why the Open is so popular. Novice anglers have won the tournament. Teams may fish anywhere within 100 nautical miles of the Ocean City inlet sea buoy, but certain areas hold favor. Most boats will head to the Poor Man’s, Baltimore, Norfolk and Washington canyons, where large fish and Open winners have been caught in the past. Motsko said to win money in the white marlin division this year, fish will have to weigh at least 80 pounds. The tournament minimum is 70 pounds and 67 inches. To have a chance at prize money in the blue marlin division, Motsko said, fish will

have to weigh at least 650-700 pounds. The tournament minimum is 500 pounds and 105 inches. Each boat is eligible to fish three of the five tournament days. Boats can leave from any inlet between Rudee Inlet, Va. and Barnegat, N.J. All boats will be searching for the same species: white and blue marlin, tuna, wahoo, dolphin and shark. While the white marlin division is the most coveted, there are also large payouts in the blue marlin and tuna categories. Cash prizes are also awarded for billfish releases. Motsko said the estimated payout to the 2013 winners could be more than $2 million, depending on participation. Weigh-ins will take place daily at Harbour Island from 4-9:15 p.m. and are open and free to the public. The first White Marlin Open took place in 1974 with 57 boats registered and a guaranteed $20,000 in prize money. Last year, approximately 2,000 anglers on 253 boats headed offshore. Overall prize money paid out to the winners last year was about $2.3 million. A handful of white marlin were brought to Harbour Island Marina during the 39th annual Open last year, but after five days of weigh-ins, only one met the tournament minimum weight. “It’s not that there were a lack of fish. [Anglers] were catching school-sized marlin that were cookie cutters of each other,” Motsko said after the tournament. The weather forecast deterred captains from fishing on the first day of the weeklong tournament, when only 10 boats headed offshore, and the final day when 24 boats went fishing. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 243, 238 and 244 fished, respectively. “Last year was unique in that most boats didn’t fish Monday. Typically, that’s a big day if the weather is good,” Motsko said Monday. “We had an anticlimactic start and an anticlimactic finish last year.” The Blew Bayou out of Ocean City, docked on the third day of the tournament, to weigh a white marlin. In three days of weigh-ins not one white had met the 70-pound minimum. William Woody’s white weighed 72 pounds and was worth $1,429,092 — the third-largest payout in tournament history. It brought in so much money because it was the only qualifying white marlin weighed and no blue marlin met the 500-pound minimum so the prize money in that division went to the Blew Bayou, which is owned by Woody, who has homes in Pasadena, Md. and Ocean City. “Last year fooled me. Last year was an anomaly,” Motsko said about the lack of qualifying white and blue marlin. “I don’t think it will happen two years in a row in both species (divisions).” Marlin conservation is emphasized every year. During the 2012 competition, 953 white marlin were released, while eight were boated (99.17 percent). Six sailfish and five spearfish were also released last year. Anglers released 37 blue marlin and only two were boated (94.87 percent). See ONLY on Page 42A

Krazy Salt’s finished tied for second place with Cape May, N.J. angler Doug Ortlip, who was fishing on the Got Game. Gill’s fish brought in $11,041, while Ortlip’s dolphin was worth $9,791. Chad Baker of Eldersburg, Md., took third place with his 27-pounder, hooked aboard The Natural. The crew received $16,215. The Amarula Sun weighed Peter Katsarelis’ (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) wahoo, which registered 66.5 pounds, but minutes later, Canyon Runner arrived with a bigeye tuna and a wahoo. Jamie Greer’s (Dayton, Ohio) wahoo weighed 70.5 pounds to take over the top spot. The team pocketed $28,756. Katsarelis and his Amarula Sun teammates won $3,433. Williamsburg, Va. resident Franklin Bowers caught a 42.5-pounder on the Sniper. The third-place fish earned the team $26,756. A scalloped hammerhead shark was brought to the scale by Scott Cusick (Jackson, N.J.) on the Milling Around and weighed 266.5 pounds–a new state record. The crew took home $5,150. Craig Dengler’s (York, Pa.) 126.5-pound mako shark he caught aboard the Longfin finished in second and was worth $4,150. For more information about the 2013 tournament, visit www.whitemarlinopen.com or call 410-289-9229.

The two blue marlin that were weighed tipped the scale at 456.5 (Storm Trouble) and 390.5 (Can Do Too) pounds, which were both below the tournament minimum. In the 39-year history of the tournament, there have been only four years a blue marlin did not make the minimum weight (1976, 1980, 1981, 2001). The most activity of the tournament was in the tuna division. On Day 2, the numbers on the scale rose as Canyon Runner angler Dave Dunton’s (Milford, Ohio) bigeye was hoisted. It finally stopped at 236 pounds. The next day, an hour and a half into the weigh-ins, the Right Hook arrived with a bigeye. Norman Pulliam’s (Yorktown, Pa.) fish weighed 238 pounds and jumped into first place in the division. Pulliam’s fish held the top spot and was worth $324,516, while Dunton’s tuna earned the team $253,825. Tra Sea Ann finished in third place, with Christian Manetta’s (Brick, N.J.) 229-pounder. The group was awarded $24,758. The Let It Ride took first place in the dolphin division with Monmouth Beach, N.J. resident, Arthur Kontos’ 33-pounder. The fish earned him and his teammates $20,648.

The good news is they’re printing the bad news

The public conversation on crime and the criminal element in Ocean City has created a divided approach to the situation: those who say something must be done and those who choose to say nothing at all. Neither of these camps, however, understands the reason for the expanded coverage some of these incidents have generated. It is because these kinds of things rarely happen here, thus making news when they do. Local newspapers, after all, have been reporting police news for generations. They believe, correctly, that residents need to know what is happening in their community. Regional and metro new outlets, however, only write up incidents from this area when they are out of the ordinary and that’s the point that everyone seems to be missing. In other words, major crimes in Ocean City are so out of character for this area that they garner attention elsewhere. That’s what everyone needs to keep in mind as they debate, or not, what ought to be done about it. It is true that the Boardwalk has been attracting a bad element at night but that’s partly because of the nature of the Boardwalk itself. Although many good businesses occupy the boards, they have come to share that space in recent years with some sleazy operators, who, as would be expected, attract a sleazy crowd. How that particular crowd ought to be controlled or discouraged is debatable, just as it is about how to control or discourage the kinds of businesses that attract them. There’s simply much more to this situation than what can be contained in a headline or a news story, no matter where they might be read. Even so, some perspective can be gained by realizing that if bad news happened here every day, it really wouldn’t be news at all.

READERS’ FORUM

OCDC’s efforts highlighted

Editor, Everyone has heard or read at some point about something that OCDC has done. But what are the real facts behind this organization that has been in existence for 12 years? If we were to tell you that in the last 12 years we’ve helped incrementally increase the property tax revenue by approximately $4 million it would certainly catch your attention. How, do you say, have you accomplished this? The facts are that we are now completing our 140th façade project which by itself has increased the values of downtown properties by approximately $7 million. We have obtained 25 grants from Maryland in excess of $1.5 million to help and encourage property owners to upgrade their properties. How about public art in Ocean City? When you drive into town over the Route 50 bridge you see that marvelous statute of the white marlin. When you drive into town from the north you see the wonderful statute of the Eagle In Flight on 142nd Street. At the new library on 100th Street, there’s a statue of Mr. Sorin reading to his daughter. As you park at the municipal

lot on Fourth Street there’s the statue of a hawk. And not to mention the numerous utility boxes and walls that have been transformed with murals. These projects were done and paid for by OCDC and its fundraising efforts. And what about the vision of transforming, altering and ultimately upgrading an open lot into what’s today the Sunset Park premier venue for free concerts, events and social activities that comes with those capturing sunsets? Somerset Plaza used to be a little used street that’s now a beautiful pedestrian area for exhibits, special events and strolls. These are a few of the many art projects of OCDC. Can you put a price on art, especially public one? All of this was accomplished by the tireless efforts of citizens of Ocean City who really care about the image of the town not only today; but in the future. And this is only part of the challenges the group has faced and overcome. I hope this will shed more light on the work of this group and better understanding of its accomplishments by the citizens of Ocean City. Charlie Barrett Ocean City

List does not include Ocean City

Editor, Recently, the Travel section of the Baltimore Sun published a list of 12 hot summer getaways. Surprisingly to some, the list did not include Ocean City. This omission should be recognized as a wake-up call for the town’s leaders and stakeholders. Over the past decade or so, the family presence in Ocean City has been slowly bleeding away. Many people who once chose our town as their vacation destination now go elsewhere. While at work at my family’s retail business, I am regularly asked by visitors whether the boardwalk “is always this bad,” or some other variation of that question. Can we reasonably expect people who ask such questions to return in the coming years? The competition for the tourism dollar is fierce. Ocean City competes with more destination rivals than in years past, and internet-savvy vacationers will search out the best value and return for their buck. Moreover, information flies between strangers: People share their experiences through social media networks and look to the comments of others for guidance Continued on Page 44A

44A OPINION

AUGUST 2, 2013

READERS’ FORUM while planning their vacations. The combination of cell phones and the internet allows bad news to travel fast: Consider the negative exposure generated by the video of the Division Street beach melee two weeks ago. Some town leaders have maintained that our tourism economy is in fact healthy. At times, when business leaders have spoken of poor performance, their concerns have been dismissed as being products of poor weather. We were told that violent criminal behavior would decline once we got through June. Do our leaders really believe their positions, or do they just hope that the rest of us are naïve enough to believe them? Demoflush figures have been lower on average the past twelve seasons

than during the 1990s—in spite of a construction boom that created many more housing units in Ocean City. Some people point out that the figures are not that much lower than they were before. However, counting how many toilets are being flushed is less important than knowing the identity of the people flushing them. The desirable vacationers seem to be flushing toilets elsewhere. Mayor Meehan has noted that society is changing. He is absolutely right, and often such shifts are beyond the control of public leaders. But linking behaviors to societal trends doesn’t act as a viable excuse for not attempting to curb these behaviors. A fellow businessman, Drew Haugh, who has worked on the beach for more than three decades, noted recently that he had never heard so many “F-bombs”

yelled on the beach and boardwalk as he has recently. I concur—reason in part that my wife and I do not bring our children to the boardwalk during the summer months. While such speech may be constitutionally protected, we should still be discussing ways to mitigate the problem. Certain “types” of people cannot be kept out of town, but their conduct can certainly be better monitored and regulated than it is now. Efforts must be made. Continuing to sidestep the issues is not an option. We all know that neighboring towns in Delaware have banned smoking on their beaches, and that Wildwood now regulates droopy drawers. Those who question the efficacy or administrability of enforcing such statutes are missing the point. The

I was talking to my dog, Crazy Eddie, the other day and asked him whether he thought the “Dog Channel,” which is being offered by various cable television outlets, was really By Stewart worth the $4.99 Dobson monthly price. Crazy Eddie, of course, did not reply, because he’s a dog and is not given to much vocalization, much less actual comprehension or any detailed thought that goes beyond, “Eat, Walk … Scratch Me Where I Can’t Reach,” with the latter being either a good thing or bad thing, depending. That, however, does not prevent me from talking to him, which proves that I, along with a billion other dog owners around the world, am not right either. Crazy Eddie, with my guidance, however, came down firmly on the side of, “I’d rather watch grass grow – and eat it – before I spend five bucks on ‘The first television network for dogs that is created exclusively for canines, and the humans who love them.’” Why? Because dogs don’t watch TV. Sure, any number of people will say, “Well, my dog watches TV.” Really? I’ve had many, many dogs over the years and the only time any of them watched television was when a fly was on the screen that he wanted to kill. Otherwise, they can’t tell the difference between a “Castle” re-run and the on-screen notice that says, “Your service has been interrupted, please call …” I will admit that I did try to interest Crazy Eddie in watching baseball, but lost him somewhere between the infield fly rule and the “Walks/Hits/Innings Pitched” statistic. You look at a dog and say, “Did you know that Seattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma has a WHIP of .097?” And the dog responds with, “Eat, Walk … Scratch Me Where I Can’t Reach.” It just doesn’t work. Nevertheless, I suppose if people are willing to tune in to the “Real Housewives,” they also will fork over $4.99 for endless dog videos, which may or may not be the same thing. I suspect, however, that when the ratings fall, as they undoubtedly will, the dog channel will attempt to spice up its programming. Here are some possibilities: 1. Hot Spots. Episode 1: Beezer finds an itch he CAN reach and reach and reach. 2. Super Scooter. Episode 1: Spot has an itch and improvises. 3. Katmandu. Episode 1: Puffy discovers the wonders of the kitty pan. 4. Let’s Roll. Episode 1: Jinx discovers something unidentifiable and rolls on it. In other words, I don’t think this dog channel idea is going anywhere. Besides, in addition to not being able to talk or understand baseball statistics, Crazy Eddie has one other major disadvantage when it comes to television: No thumbs. He can talk all he wants, but he can’t use the remote.

NEWS 45A

READERSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; FORUM true effectiveness of enacting such legislation lies not in enforcement, but in sending the message to visitors that their concerns are recognized and that steps are being proactively taken to address these concerns. Perception is everything; poor perceptions of Ocean City are likely the root of why our town was shunned by the Baltimore Sun. We need to change these perceptions. Ocean Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism economy is at a critical juncture. Those who do not believe so should consider the fate of Wildwood during the 1970s. Wildwood had allowed itself to be overrun by partying young adults, whose behavior effectively collapsed the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy by encouraging families to seek alternative vacation destinations. Rebuilding the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand took years of hard work, but today, Wildwood is widely acclaimed for its family-friendliness. The future of Ocean City is not hopeless, but measures need to be taken now. The crucial first step is for our leaders to summon the courage to candidly, transparently recognize and address the problems that we are facing. If they cannot do so, they should step aside and let others take the lead in the interest of preserving our townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic well-being. There is no longer room for egos. The actions that follow this step could perhaps return our tourism economy to the peak years we enjoyed during the late 1980s and 1990s. And maybe one day, the pride we feel from again being endorsed by media outlets as a worthy destination will replace our present, misguided feelings of being automatically entitled to such recognition.

OC needs to nix knives and machetes Editor, Is it only a remnant of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people that recognize how drastically Ocean City has changed? It seems that a floodgate has been opened with a large percentage of the lower socioeconomic inner city undesirable crowd being given a free pass to come to Ocean City. And they bring with them their typical violent, aggressive and loud behaviors. Simply following the news reported by The Dispatch, Ocean City Today and The Daily Times, anyone can clearly observe an intensity and frequency in the types of violent crimes our vacation resort communities are experiencing. Examine the incidents reported by The Dispatch concerning an altercation at the Dennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant around

4:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 13. The Ocean City police responded to the parking lot of the Dennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant in the area of 112th Street for a reported weapons violation. A person identified as Stephen Dayaram Jagtiani, 30, of Falls Church, Va., threatened other visitors with a machete weapon because they questioned his aggressive driving through the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot, which endangered themselves and others. On Wednesday, July 17 during the midafternoon, a Delaware State Police chased a dangerous man, armed with a machete down Coastal Highway. The chase involved other cars being hit before the man was apprehended for a hit and run accident in Rehoboth Beach. Albeit, this individual was not staying in Ocean City; his lack of regard for

others adversely impacted our vacation resort communities. Just earlier this week, there were two additional fights involving knives. Three men were arrested after a fight on a crowded downtown beach in the middle of a busy Sunday afternoon after an Ocean City Beach Patrol surf rescue technician was threatened. This reportedly occurred around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Ocean City police responded to the beach at N. Division Street for a reported group of disorderly males. The request for assistance came from an Ocean City Beach Patrol lifeguard, who told police he approached the group to speak with them, at which time one of the suspects threatened him. An incident involving a Connecticut man resulted in him being charged

with first-degree assault this week after pulling a knife and nearly stabbing a resort bar owner during a scuffle. This particular incident occurred around 1:40 a.m. on Monday. I suppose these four incidents should dispel the myth that seems to be held by Ocean City Mayor and City Council that there is only an increase in crime during the month of June; then all peace and safety are magically restored in July and August. What a joke! When do they plan to wake up and take action to restore peace and safety in Ocean City? I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine upper middleclass families wanting to continue coming to Ocean City to be exposed to these types of incidents. Rachel Fiorello Ocean City

Annual White Marlin Open kicks off Monday, runs through Fri. Weigh-ins will take place daily at Harbour Island Marina from 4-9:15 p.m. LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Aug. 2, 2013) Monday, Aug. 5, is the first day of the 40th annual White Marlin Open, one of the largest billfish tournaments in the world. Fishing will continue through Friday, Aug. 9. Each year, hundreds of anglers participate in the fishing event, which has been named as one of Marlin Magazine’s 10 best billfish tournaments. The White Marlin Open has also been voted by readers of “In The Bite” magazine as the competition in which they would most like to participate. The tournament is so popular that more than 65 percent of the boats return annually to compete, according to Jim Motsko, director and founder of the tournament. Some new boats have registered to participate this year. Last year, more than 2,000 anglers on 253 boats headed offshore in search of white and blue marlin, tuna, wahoo, shark and dolphin. While the white marlin division is the most coveted, there are also large payouts in the blue marlin and tuna categories. See EARLY on Page 3B

Watch boats head out fishing through OC inlet Estimated 4,000-5,000 spectators visit Harbour Island daily for weigh-ins LISA CAPITELLI  Managing Editor (Aug. 2, 2013) Fishing enthusiasts and spectators are expected to arrive by the thousands to Harbour Island Marina on 14th Street for the daily weigh-ins of the 40th annual White Marlin Open, scheduled Aug. 5-9. The crowd of spectators converging for the weigh-ins, held 4-9:15 p.m. daily, has grown immensely since the tournament’s inception, according to Jim Motsko, founder of the White Marlin Open, as several thousand visitors pack into the area surrounding the bayside marina’s docks to get a front-row view of the fish as they are brought to the scale. Motsko suggests spectators arrive early to get a clear view of the action at the scale. Some people show up hours before to stake their place in front of the scale, while the rest of the diehard fish enthusiasts are there by 4 p.m., when the weigh-ins begin. “The people in the crowd think it’s exciting and so do the anglers themselves,” Motsko said. If the weather is ideal, Motsko expects a large number of boats to go out

Boats are docked at Sunset Marina. A number of boats from the West Ocean City marina and others in the area will head offshore, Aug. 5-9, during the 40th annual White Marlin Open.

fishing on Day 1. There is no cost to attend the weighins, but visitors are reminded parking is prohibited at Harbour Island. Parking is available on side streets, or for a small donation, in the Presbyterian Church lot on 14th Street. There will also be an express shuttle service offered from the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street to the corner of 14th Street and Jacqueline Avenue. Express service will operate about every 20 minutes from 3-11 p.m. daily during the event. Parking is free at the convention center. Spectators may take the Ocean City bus to the scale as well. Both the shuttle and bus cost $3 for a ride-all-day pass, or $1 per boarding. Motsko estimates that between 4,000 and 5,000 people come and go from the Harbour Island dock area each day to watch the weigh-ins, but the excitement

begins even before anglers put their lines in the water. Hundreds of spectators wake up early, especially on Day 1, to catch the fleet of boats leaving each morning from the Ocean City inlet. Watching the boats depart for the fishing spots has become increasingly popular, as people line up along the jetty bright and early just to catch a glimpse. Boats may leave as early as 4 a.m. this year. “It’s become an event in its own,” Motsko said. Another spot to see the vessels head out for the day is downtown at Sunset Park on South Division Street or the bayside boardwalk near Third Street. Live streaming video of the weigh-ins will be available online again this year at www.whitemarlinopen.com. Daily activity and updates will also be posted.

HAPPY HOUR

An Ocean City Tradition ENTERTAINMENT:

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) There might still be some uncertainty about the decision you made. But a quick check of the facts should reassure you that you’re doing the right thing. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The tidy Taurean needs to be a little more flexible about accepting some changes to those carefully made plans. You might be pleasantly surprised by what follows. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Consider stepping away from your concentrated focus on your new project for a bit so you can get some perspective on what you’ve done and where you plan to take it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The understandably angry Crab might not want to accept the reason why someone might have tried to hurt you. But at least you’ll have an insight into why it happened. LEO (July 23 to August 22) There might be some facts you still need to know before leaping onto center stage. Best to move carefully at this time so that you can observe what’s happening around you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) It’s a good time to expand your outlook by getting out and around, whether you do some long-range traveling or just explore the great things to see closer to home. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your wise counsel continues to be needed as that family situation works itself out. Meanwhile, the decisions you made on your job begin to pay off quite nicely. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your job situation brightens thanks to all your hard work. Now, spend some time repairing a personal relationship you might have neglected for too long. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Aspects favor action in the workplace. Line up your facts and show your superiors why you’re the one they’re looking for. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your hard work pays off on the job. Personal relationships also can benefit from more of your time and attention. Spend the weekend with loved ones. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Early feedback on your project might be disappointing. But don’t be discouraged. Use it to make needed adjustments, then submit it to your superiors again. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Flattery could lure the otherwise sensible Fish into making an unwise decision. Be careful. All that praise might be an attempt to reel you in before you can learn the facts. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful sense of who you are. You are a shining example to others, helping them believe in themselves and what they can do.

Heirloom Tomato Tasting at Furnace Town, Sunday, 1-4 p.m. Guests can judge samples on initial taste, texture, after-taste, overall appeal (Aug. 2, 2013) An Heirloom Tomato Tasting will be held at Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 1 - 4 p.m. Tomatoes in shades of red and yellow with names like Bloody Butcher, Mortgage Lifter and Banana Leg are being grown for this

event, popular with those who savor the summer flavor of garden-fresh tomatoes. The tomatoes will be lined up on picnic tables beneath the pavilion, where the tasting of about a dozen varieties such as Yellow Pear, Mr. Stripey, Black Krim, and others will take place. Actual tomatoes available for tasting will depend upon the weather. Staff and volunteers will be busy cutting bite-size samples of each

heirloom variety, placing the samples in individual cups and displaying them on the tasting table in front of the uncut tomatoes. Sidney Merrill, Furnace Town’s gardener, will be on hand to answer questions and to share information about growing tomatoes as well as Master Gardeners and Educators. Judging cards will be available for each taster. The tomatoes may be rated from 1 - 5 (5 being best) on initial taste, texture, after-taste and overall, with room for comments.

Great Pocomoke Fair this wknd. Live harness racing, gospel concert, exhibits and games among activities scheduled LIZ LANE  Intern (Aug. 2, 3012) The Great Pocomoke Fair kicked off yesterday and will continue today and Saturday with activities and exhibits in the southern end of Worcester County. Gloria Smith, treasurer of the fair committee, said approximately 2,5003,000 people attend the fair and some specific activities attract visitors every year. “The harness racing, antique tractor pull and greased pig contest are local attractions,” she said. “Regarding the harness racing, we are the only fair with a single day of harness racing for entertainment.” Other activities include indoor exhibits, such as crafts, home furnishings, canned and baked good and vegetables, livestock exhibits and hog, dairy cow and beef cattle judging. A gospel concert, supported by a Worcester County Arts Council grant, is schedule to begin at 6:30 p.m. and the Valdez family, of Wicomico county, is scheduled to sing at 8:30 p.m.

Fair gates will open at 5 p.m. today, Friday. Admission costs $2. Visitors have the option to bring four non-perishable food items to receive half off the price of admission all three days of the fair. Smith said the proceeds will benefit the Good Samaritan Shelter and the partnership is an initiative by the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, of which the fair is a member. The Good Samaritan Shelter provides transitional housing and supportive services to men, women and women with children in local communities. The fair will close at 10 p.m. tonight. Activities are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 10:15 p.m. on Saturday. The cost is $2 and children 6 and younger will be admitted free. An equine show will be the first of the day’s events.

Both exhibition and sanctioned races will be carded. Children’s activities are also scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, and include games and crafts. Smith said the activities

SRTs trained to watch over beachgoers in effective, efficient way ON GUARD

Lifeguard’s ability to scan their most important skill KRISTIN JOSON  Contributing Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) Summer is in full swing and the beach is packed with vacationers. Surf rescue technicians look out from their stands at hundreds of people swimming in the water and enjoying themselves on the beach. People often ask, “How can the life-

guards possibly watch everyone?” Although SRTs cannot watch every single person for every single second, they are trained to watch over the beach patrons on their beach in an effective and efficient way that allows them to see any potential problems before they manifest themselves. Of all the equipment and skills an SRT brings to the beach each day for work, their ability to scan is the most important. An SRT’s scan refers to their ability to visu-

ally survey and identify possible problems and to use this information to minimize any threat to beach patrons. SRTs are trained in the Surf Rescue Academy to seek out non-swimmers before they even enter the water. SRTs are trained to watch the body language and swimming ability of everyone in their water and on their beach. For example, beach patrons who are facing shore or heading toward shore are to be watched more closely. An example of some questions an SRT might ask themselves about a swimmer facing shore are, “Are they having any trouble coming back to the beach? Are they be-

SRT Jared Sears from Crew 2 continually scans his area observing all water and beach activities.

coming tired and making no progress?” SRTs use a combination of the information they have about the water they guard and the information they gather from the behavior of the people they watch to keep everyone safe. SRTs are responsible for the entire area around their guard stand including all water and beach area from the stand to their north to the stand to their south including the beach and dune area behind them. This method of constantly looking for any signs of infractions, emergencies or situations needing their attention is an active process and assures that every person is being watched by at least two SRTs at all times. This scan is the SRT’s primary tool that enables them to do their job effectively and is one of the most critical skills a guard can develop to help keep everyone safe. It is a proactive tool rather than a reactive response. The SRT’s scan is composed of a primary and secondary scan. The primary scan includes the entire area from the guard tower to the north (left) of all the water and beach east of the guard stands to the guard tower to the south (right). The secondary scan includes the entire beach and all beach patrons west of the guard stands. Ninety percent of the guard’s time is spent in primary scan See SCANNING on Page 16B

ON GUARD with a less frequent scan to the west. SRTs are trained to recognize and respond to potential problems before they develop and proactively minimize the danger to their patrons. By maintaining an alert scan, the SRT will be able to warn people away from potential danger (such as a rip current) before the person becomes a victim needing to be rescued and can follow-up by educating the same patrons about the safest places to swim on their beach or potential beach hazards. In fact the scan becomes such a part of the individual lifeguard that many past guards comment that they are unable to relax on any beach without constantly scanning. Unlike a police officer, firefighter or paramedic, who are dispatched to assist people in need of their services after the 911 center receives a call, the SRT is responsible to determine the need for assistance and then respond appropriately. Although technology has impacted many areas of public safety, surf lifesaving has seen the least amount of change. When an emergency occurs it is the training and vigilant scan of the SRT that identifies the problem, analyzes the situation and may result in the SRT’s decision to use their physical ability to Continued from Page 14B

make the proper intervention. Because of these requirements each employee must pass a rigorous pre-employment physical skills test to assure they can meet the running and swimming criteria. Successful candidates attend a Surf Rescue Academy where they learn the various surveillance skills necessary to maintain an active and efficient visual scan. The SRT is very busy assuring everyone’s safety in the water as well as on the beach while at the same time being responsible for enforcing all the laws, ordinances and rules. The job is made easier when they have your patience, understanding and assistance. So please help the SRT out and remember, if you hear a whistle take the time to stop what you are doing and look toward the SRT who is attempting to get someone’s attention. It may be you. The ocean and beach are wonderful places to enjoy a summer day, just remember that the SRT is trying to assure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience and may need to remind you about some of the rules. If you need help on the beach or in the water, you should wave your arms over your head indicating to the SRT that you need their assistance. To help keep you safe always check in with the SRT on the stand and remember, “Keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguard’s in the stand!”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Make dishes better, or at least attempt to improve DEBORAH LEE WALKER  Contributing Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) When you enter the culinary arena, don’t make the mistake of thinking that being creative somehow violates the rules of tradition or that there is such a thing as the perfect result. In other words, is there anything in the gastronomical world or otherwise that is absolutely, indisputably perfect? Of course not. Making things better, or at least attempting to, is what we do. There is one restaurant, however, that is being heralded as close to perfection. According to a report on CNN Travel, Yu’s Family Kitchen in Chengdu, Sichuan is getting fabulous reviews and is the buzz of cookery bliss. That’s because Yu has placed standardization on the back burner and has redefined the culture of dining. No two meals are the same because the ingredients change daily based on availability. Yu’s commitment to detail is extraordinary and his artistic expertise is beyond one’s imagination, according to the CNN report. For example, a simple steamed red bean bun is meticulously transformed into an edible hedgehog. The spikes are individually clipped with scissors for unbelievable precision. Another instance of brilliance is a calligraphy brush served with either a tomato or black vinegar ink sauce. The actual tip of the brush is edible. Instead of encasing the minced pork into a typical doughy wrapper, Yu transforms floss from the dough and spins it into the end of the wooden handle. The piece de resistance is his ability to conceal the free range Tibetan ground pork within the threads of the floss. Yu studied spicy and classic cookery under renowned chefs for 10 years. Then he ventured off on his own and opened Yu’s Family Kitchen with his wife in 2006. Go online and check out the pictures of his amazing work. Most of us have neither the time nor the skill to go to such lengths with our menu but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pursue excellence in whatever we do in the kitchen. And that would include the tasty, but otherwise routine breakfast entry, French toast. The origins of French toast can be traced back to the 4th century Rome in a cookbook attributed to Apicius.

Add flavor to French toast with nutmeg, vanilla or other spices in ancient and medieval texts were not written for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;averageâ&#x20AC;? person. Only the noble, wealthy, and religious leaders were taught to read. Consequently, the recipes reflect the taste of the upper classes. This would explain why many French toast recipes during that time called for fresh, expensive bread as opposed to stale bread. The art of French toast is straightforward but making it superlative becomes a challenge. Texture immediately crosses my mind and panko breadcrumbs flash through my decision process. But I instantly dismiss this idea because of conflicting flavors. However, Captain Crunch could add to the coveted crunch and Fruit Loops would dazzle the kids with a rainbow of colors. Flavor is the next issue at hand. Vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and Chinese Five Spice add swirls of essence to the standard egg mixture. Incorporating the components in a blender is important. More air results in a lighter batter, which, in turn, results in a crispier crust. A dollop of whip cream and fresh berries are the final touches to a mouthwatering breakfast that will please all. Continued from Page 21B

Ingredients 3/4 cup heavy cream 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 pinches each cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and Chinese Five Spice 8 to 10 slices thick-sliced white bread 1 cup Captain Crunch 1 cup Fruit Loops butter for cooking whip cream, fresh berries, and fresh basil (optional) 1. Put the cereal in a Ziptop bag, using a rolling pin crush it until it has the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs. Transfer to a shallow dish. 2. Combine cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and spices. Mix in a blender until thoroughly combined. 3. Dip slices of bread into the cream mixture and allow excess liquid to drip off. Press bread into cereal crumbs and coat evenly. 4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add butter as needed and cook the bread until it caramelizes on both sides. 5. Serve with a dollop of whip cream and fresh berries. Garnish with fresh basil.

What is it about weathermen that average male hung up on? SENIOR SLANT

Tend to believe every word they speak is gospel truth IRISH KEMP  Contributing Writer

OCEAN CITY TODAY/IRISH KEMP

Children enjoy Sundaes in the Park at Northside Park on 125th Street.

(Aug. 2, 2013) A first time in 20 years ain’t bad for this weekly scribe. And if you’re gonna be scooped, best it be by a biggie, such as the Washington Post. Besides the Post’s source was the passel (Dobson’s word not mine) of kids that retired judge produced as a charter member of 7UP and Amite club in the days of yore. Trust me there was definitely something in the air when you lived in or around Washington, D.C.’s Brookland area. It is located in the midst of a trillion religious establishments such as the Franciscan Monastery and Catholic University. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Theresa and Tom Dugan tied the knot two weeks ago at St. Anne’s in Bethany. This will surely be the summer that will be known as the summer that never was in the eyes of the beholders. What is it about weathermen that the average male is so hung up on? They tend to believe that every word outta their mouths is the gospel truth.

At Skip’s urging, I stowed all my deck furniture under a canopy about two weeks ago in preparation for the big storm that never was. Why? Cuz the weatherman told him so. My neighbors and visitors tell me to leave them under cover. They claim the sun won’t shine tomorrow if I uncover them. But rain or no, those covers have gotta go. Trust me, I am not a troublemaker, I’m just so tired of sitting on the steps. Maybe all this is happening ‘cuz the paper man delivered Tuesday’s paper, See SIT on Page 26B

(Aug. 2, 2013) Dr. Joshua Fradel, Worcester County Public Schools coordinator of instruction for Social Studies, has been selected from a pool of more than 500 applicants to participate in the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Summer Teacher Institute for the week of July 29-Aug. 2. Each year, the Library Joshua Fradel of Congress provides the opportunity for a carefully chosen group of K-12 educators to attend one of its five teacher institutes in Washington, D.C. During the five-day program, participants work with Library education specialists and subject-matter experts to learn effective practices for using primary sources in the classroom, while exploring some of the millions of digitized historical artifacts and documents available on the Library’s Web site. Educators attending the teacher institutes develop primary-source-based

teaching strategies that they can take back to their school districts, apply in the classroom and pass along to colleagues. Teaching with primary sources is a powerful way to help students ask engaged, probing questions, develop critical-thinking skills, and construct knowledge. All educators can access classroom materials, teaching tools and strategies for teaching with primary sources from the Library’s site for teachers at www.loc.gov/teachers. Applicants to the Teaching with Primary Sources Summer Teacher Institutes reflect the diversity of the world of K-12 education. Participants in a teacher institute session typically include school library media specialists and school administrators, in addition to classroom teachers. Those selected come from many different states, representing large metropolitan school districts and smaller, rural school districts. The expertise provided by the Library of Congress during the institutes can benefit every level of K-12 education. Primary sources are the raw materials of history — original documents and objects that were created at the time under study. They are different from secondary sources, accounts or interpretations of events created by someone without firsthand experience. Students working with See EDUCATORS on Page 29B

rials, learn how to tie nautical knots and play games for prizes, such as a ball toss, and various water games. Representatives from the Ocean City Beach Patrol will make an appearance to talk about their roles in the resort as well as beach safety. Children will also be able to visit with the Ocean City Mounted Police and their horses, which Knuckles said is very popular. Ben Cherry will also be performing as Blackbeard the Pirate from 1-3 p.m. “It’s just a fun day,” said Knuckles. “I’ve gotten comments from parents that they brought their kids back because it’s a free day and you get to learn some stuff. It’s a way to keep cool on a hot day.” For information call 410-289-4991 or visit www.ocmuseum.org.

Relentless Watersports flight instructor Ricky Amend shows the Jetlev system in action Monday in Montego Bay, turning tricks such as “walking on water,” above.

A relentlessly cool watersports adventure for those who seek something different

CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer f you’ve noticed an unusual scene in Montego Bay this week, you’re not the only one. Jet Skis, boats and cars have stopped in the area as passersby watch Relentless Watersports’ customers tackle Ocean City’s new adventure sport: water-powered jetpacks. The packs, called Jetlevs, pump about 1,000 gallons of water a minute through a hose hoisting thrill seekers more than 10 feet in the air over the bay. Customers get a 20-minute ride, plus a boat trip to and from the launch site and the guidance of a jovial Jetlev crew. “It’s like riding a bike,” Relentless Watersports marketing manager Nick Strong said. The first, second and third attempts involve some spills, but once

you’re in the air “it’s actually incredibly simple.” Relentless Watersports staff chose the spot off Harbour Drive in the bay for its depth — up to six feet, depending on the tide. After boat taxiing customers to the site, the crew straps them tightly to the pack and reviews safety and controls. Pilots are outfitted with a helmet, and then they’re ready to jump in the water. When the customer is ready, he or she starts the Jetlev’s engine — what looks like a large Jet Ski with no seat or steering, connected to the pack by the hose. The helmet holds a one-way communication system, so trained flight instructors help guide pilots through the subtle hand movements that carry the pack into the air. After a few minutes, customers get a See RELENTLESS on Page 32B

Relentless Watersports’ jetpacks send you on different sort of trip feel for flying and the crew takes them through simple maneuvers like a lowwater hover, S-turns and the “walk on water” trick. “So far, everybody who comes out — they love it,” Strong said. “Every single person,” Relentless Watersports owner Matt Fram said. The idea to bring the Jetlev system to Ocean City came in late April when Relentless Watersports staff were vacationing in Florida. They saw a video of the Jetlev system in action that set their entrepreneurial wheels in motion, Fram said. The crew of six — Strong, Fram, flight instructors and owners Ricky Amend and Alex Vonbussenius, flight assistants Taylor Glisson and Mason Torres, and owner Stan Holmes — secured sponsors and a location, and Relentless Watersports carried its first customers to the Montego Bay site, off 130th Street, on July 25, making it the first business to offer Jetlev’s sky-high experience in Ocean City. With about three or four clients taking to the skies each day since, they’ve heard “only positive responses,” Strong said. “The best thing is just seeing everybody smile,” he said. With continued success, Relentless Continued from Page 31B

Watersports plans to expand, opening a location in south Ocean City in the next few years. They also have plans to carry the Jetlev business to Puerto Rico during Ocean City’s off-season and might expand onto Tennessee’s lakes in the near future. Relentless Watersports will run through mid-September, or later if business keeps up, Strong said. The staff presents a daily Sunset Show, when the crew turns tricks such as barrel rolls on the jetpacks over the water near Harpoon Hanna’s on Route 54 in Fenwick Island, Del., around 7:30 p.m. Find Relentless Watersports on Facebook, at relentlesswatersports on Instagram, at the Twitter handle relentlessws or at www.RelentlessWatersports.com. Learn more about the Jetlev system at www.jetlev.com. Customers must be at least 16 years old to operate the Jetlev pack . Those 18 and younger need a parent’s signature to fly. Flights cost $199 for a 20-minute session, but the entire trip takes about an hour and a half. Same-day flights are available, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Relentless Watersports is located in the green outbuilding at 39084 Harpoon Road in Fenwick Island in Harpoon Hanna’s parking lot. Call 410-390-2384 to arrange a flight.

New 45th Street restaurant brings sake, sushi and noodles to OC Sushi chef Lamar ‘put the rest of the pieces together for me,’ GM Burton says CLARA VAUGHN  Staff Writer (Aug. 2, 2013) A new sushi, noodle and Asian food joint opened at 45th Street on July 17, bringing new variety to Ocean City dining. The Drunken Noodle offers sushi, Vietnamese food, flavored sakes and of course, its signature drunken noodle dish. “We try to stick to a little bit of everything” on the menu, said General Manager Jeff Burton. The 60-seat restaurant was once an overflow area for outdoor dining at the 45th Street Taphouse Bar & Grille. Burton wanted to make better use of the room without having to install a massive kitchen in the intimate space, he said. He also wanted to offer something different from what diners can find at Taphouse and OC Steamers, all part of the 45th Street complex. “I had a gentleman from New York who said, ‘What this place really needs is a great sake bar,’” Burton said, and from there, the concept for the Drunken Noodle was born. Early this year, Burton spent much time at sake dinners and ate what he can only describe as “a lot of sushi” piecing together the restaurant. He brainstormed the layout with the owners of the 45th Street Sunsations and 45th Street complex, the Sibony family. “They have the great retail experience, and I have the restaurant experience,” Burton said. He’s spent 25 years as an executive chef and 10 years as a restaurant consultant.

Drunken Noodle Sushi Chef Brook Lamar, left, and General Manager Jeff Burton stand inside the new restaurant that opened about two weeks ago near OC Steamers and 45th Street Taphouse.

With a concept and a layout in mind, all that was left was to find a sushi chef. He called in Brook Lamar, a local with 27 years of kitchen experience and a stellar reputation in Ocean City. “Brook finally put the rest of the pieces together for me,” Burton said. “I didn’t have the sushi experience that he has.” The idea was to keep the menu small, but to offer dishes unique among Ocean City dining. Some of the Drunken Noodle’s signature dishes are its Saltwater Cowboy sushi — a jumbo lump crab roll wrapped in seared beef — sliders with nori, and its namesake noodle dish. Drunken noodles don’t actually con-

The Drunken Noodle also features more than 20 sakes, including flavored sakes, and plans to expand its drink menu to include sake-ritas and sake sangria. The most expensive dish on the menu is $12 and carryout is available. In about a week, the Drunken Noodle will expand into its upstairs lounge, offering views of the bay.

The signage isn’t complete yet, so look for it tucked in the back right corner by Taphouse. The Drunken Noodle is open Tuesday through Thursday, 4-10 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, 4-11 p.m.

Gas prices

Average retail gasoline prices in Maryland have fallen 2.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.67/g Monday, according to GasBuddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily survey of 2,167 gas outlets in Maryland. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.65/g, according to gasoline price Web site GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Maryland during the past week, prices Monday were 19.3 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 21.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 14 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After an impressive run that saw the national average begin to approach its springtime high, it appears prices have plateaued- at least for now,â&#x20AC;? said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oil prices appear to be taking a breather, but with the peak of hurricane season approaching, an continued upward trajectory in gasoline prices is certainly possible, should we see a major storm take aim for the Gulf. Crude inventories have also declined four consecutive weeks, and large decreases in crude inventories in the near future may be cause for rising oil prices as well.â&#x20AC;? GasBuddy operates MarylandGasPrices.com and more than 250 similar Web sites that track gasoline prices at more than 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free Smartphone app which has been downloaded over 25 million times to help motorists find the lowest gasoline prices in their area.
