At the direction of the city’s Tourism Commission, a survey will be sent to members of the city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association and the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, to gauge interest in the proposal. But the core issue is not one of efficacy, but of principle – as to whether the city should be using a taxpayerfunded website to sell a product that competes with private advertising media and places some businesses above others on the official online face of the city. “You’re going to get push-back from some businesses, I think,” said HMRA Executive Director Susan Jones. “They

CVB members could pay to upgrade listings, banner ads on site feel this is a government site and everyone should be represented equally.” But Mayor Rick Meehan found a pay-to-play system just as equitable. “Those who are proactive and want to better their position will have the opportunity,” Meehan said. “The ones who are successful will rise to the top. It’s just like any other business.” Currently, a $200 membership to the town’s CVB gets hospitality businesses a listing on ococean.com’s categorized, searchable index. The listing features a limited number of photos, text, and link to go directly to the businesses’ website. Ococean.com is owned by the city and administered by the city’s advertising agency, MGH. But some business owners have expressed a desire to have a larger presence on the site and would be willing to pay for it. This week, MGH came back to the city with a proposal on how such a system could be structured, suggesting that four tiers of listing be used. The first tier – available with the standard CVB membership or even at a reduced fee – would be text-only. “This would be for some of the smaller members or those who have hesitated to join the CVB,” said Alison Fiorelli of MGH. “We’re hoping this simplified listing would encourage
Continued from Page 1A
them to join.” Second and third tier listings would have photos and space to promote deals, as well as being run above lowertier listings. Third tier listings would also feature banner ad rotation. Fourthtier listings would have further expanded space, a guaranteed top-billing space, and heavier rotation of advertising. “They’d have the opportunity to kind of own that section of the site,” Fiorelli said. The average ococean.com listing garners 10,000 impressions and 660 actual click-throughs, coming out to roughly two cents per impression and 30 cents per click. This is comparable with many open-market advertising rates, although what the city would be able to charge in addition for expanded listings or advertising has yet to be determined. “The biggest problem would be figuring out your prices,” said MGH President Andy Malis. “It’s going to be a guess. It will change the way [the site] is in terms of how its presented.” Jones said she had reservations, however, that those with more capital would monopolize a website designed to promote the entire resort, not a select few venues. “The people who can afford to advertise are at the top, so the visitors are
going to see who’s higher-priced and not the ‘mom-and-pop’ places,” Jones said. “Which probably isn’t the best course given that we already have a reputation for high rates.” Councilman Joe Mitrecic suggested that the top-tier listings not have a guaranteed place at the head of the search results, “so there’s nobody who’s always at the top of the mountain, so to speak.” If the city were to create a price-tier system for ococean.com, however, the further question would be whether the city would be undercutting private businesses who also run advertising-supported tourism sites. “I’m not opposed to it on face value, it just depends on all the particulars,” said John Gehrig of D3 Corp, which owns and runs several tourism and hotel booking websites. “It isn’t so much that businesses shouldn’t be able to promote themselves, it’s about it being an equal opportunity for everyone,” Gehrig said. “If every hotel wants to have a featured listing, then you’re back to where you started, you’re just charging more. And you can’t say that only 10 hotels are going to be on the top tier, for instance. A private organization could do that, but we’re talking about a municipal website that’s funded by taxpayer dollars.” “As long as it doesn’t change the
mindset of the town, it can make everyone better,” said Ann Hillyer, whose website – oceancity.com – hosts hotel bookings and event listings, as well as the online edition of this newspaper. “But in some places it has been a problem,” Hillyer said, particularly in regards to her annapolis.com website. “In Annapolis, I’m finding the CVB there feels competitive with me, so then it becomes and issue.” According to City Solicitor Guy Ayres, “there’s nothing that prohibits the city from having a proprietary enterprise.” “It’s when they are performing a government service and they charge more than the cost of the service that it can be considered a tax,” Ayres said. However, if ococean.com were to be less of a public service for the CVB and more of a paid advertising site, the city could likely make the argument that the site is not a strictly governmental function. “The downside of a municipality doing something that’s not entirely governmental is that you can’t claim immunity from liability,” Ayres said. “That determination depends on whether the function is a regulatory scheme that you charge for, or a separate proprietary function. In some cases, that simply boils down to whether you’re charging more money than necessary to run it.”

Casino at Ocean Downs to double in size with expansion NANCY POWELL Staff Writer

(Aug. 16, 2013) A planned expansion would double the size of the Casino at Ocean Downs. Those plans call for the construction of a 35,475-square-foot addition to the existing casino, which has approximately 34,000 square feet. The site plan for that addition was discussed briefly during Wednesday’s Technical Review Committee meeting in Snow Hill. It will be discussed in more detail during the Planning Commission meeting on Sept. 5. Zoning administration Jennifer Burke said information provided to the Technical Review Committee did not include plans for the interior, but it is assumed the expansion is for table games, which were approved by the General Assembly last year. The expansion would be built north of the existing casino. The casino, which is open 24 hours a day, currently has 800 slot machines and is permitted to have 50 additional slots, so those could be placed in the new addition as well as table games. The number of table games allowed would be up to the State Gaming Commission. When the casino was built, it was not required to meet the county’s Design Guidelines and Standards for Commercial Buildings, but it was built according to the agricultural traditions in those guidelines and standards and the Planning Commission members were pleased with the result when construction was completed in 2010. The casino celebrated its grand opening in January 2011. The proposed expansion is expected to have a similar design and colors and it will have no additional signage. In 2011, the county Planning Commission approved plans for a bowling alley and movie theater at the site, but those plans are not moving forward at this time because of the casino expansion. Also, the State Highway Administration has not given final approval for a “right in, right out,” entrance and exit on Route 589. Plans called for separate buildings for the bowling alley and theater to be built on a 7.5-acre parcel of land near the northeast intersection of Route 589 and Route 707, Gray’s Corner Road. Live harness racing continues at Ocean Downs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in August. Next month, race days are Sept. 1, 2, 6,7 and 8. Post times are 7:20 p.m. except for Sept. 2, Labor Day, when post time will be 1:10 p.m. Simulcast horse racing takes place daily from noon to midnight. Ocean Downs is located on Route 589, just off Route 50 between Ocean City and Berlin.

Ship has six decks, 25-person crew next few years as part of an educational project. The ship has a crew of about 25 Spanish sailors, including three women, and has six decks to explore. “We are happy to be working with the Town of Ocean City to make this event happen,” said Bryan Lilley, chairman of the board of the NASSF (Lilley also stages the Ocean City Air Show). “We appreciate all the effort made by the town because we couldn’t do this without them.” City officials approved the event last week, allowing the vessel to moor at the bayside pier between Third and Fourth streets through Sept. 2. Guided interactive tours will be offered daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week. The NASSF is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing science, technology, engineering, and mechanics Continued from Page 1A
awareness in youth and the public. The organization also sponsored the ship’s visit in May to Port Canaveral, Fla., where more than 30,000 people walked its decks and stared up at its 120-foot-tall main masts. In addition, to that port, El Galeón visited Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and St. Augustine, Fla., to give people the opportunity to experience what life was like aboard a sailing ship in the 1500s. St. Augustine also will be the ship’s homeport while it is on this side of the Atlantic. Tickets are available for purchase at the gate, or in advance at a discounted price by visiting http://www.tallshipevent.com. Volunteers are needed to help while the ship is docked in Ocean City.

City could try to legislate cabbie parking after complaint on 64th Drivers say they have as much right to commercial use of street as restaurant ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer
OCEAN CITY TODAY/ZACK HOOPES
Cabs are seen parked between shifts on 64th Street, which runs north of Dead Freddie’s restaurant and serves to access the city’s wastewater treatment plant.
(Aug. 16, 2013) You talkin’ to me? While not yet at the pariah level of Travis Bickle, Robert DiNiro’s dark character in “Taxi Driver,” the city may soon be asking cab drivers to stop corralling their vehicles on 64th Street, at the request of a nearby business owner. But cabbies say the street is a prime location that they have just as much right to as
anyone else. Dead Freddie’s restaurant owner Steve Carullo asked the city’s Police Commission this week if any arrangements could be made so that cab drivers would not use 64th Street as a de-facto staging area. The street borders Carullo’s restaurant to the north, and also runs out alongside the bay inlet that Dead Freddies’ dining area overlooks. “On any given day I’m losing about 40 parking spaces and it’s becoming an eyesore,” Carullo said. “If I had come and seen this four years ago when I bought the property, I wouldn’t be here.” While not an official location, drivers from multiple cab companies use the street as an exchange point for shifts. Drivers will park their personal vehicles on the street and get in a cab vacated by the driver from a previous shift, who then drives his own personal vehicle home. Not only is 64th a central location in the resort, cabbies say, but it also has virtually no through-traffic and an abundance of perpendicular parking spaces. “It’s not like we’re inundating a neighborhood with commercial vehicles,” said one cab owner, who did not wish to be named. “The only thing actually on that street is a sewage treatment

Cabs require central location for drivers to exchange vehicles plant. I have just as much right to park there as the guy who owns Dead Freddie’s.” The city has enforced rules against overnight parking in some areas, such as the Caine Keys neighborhood, to prevent residential areas from being used for commercial purposes. But discriminating between one commercial use – cabs – and other uses, such as beach or restaurant parking, presents some legal and ethical dilemmas. “How do you target one specific type of vehicle?” asked Councilman Dennis Dare. “Any properly licensed vehicle can use a city street.” It would be possible for the city to mandate where cabs could and could not be left, City Manager David Recor noted, via the town’s ordinance that already established a regulatory medallion system over the cab industry. “But if you say they can’t park on one particular street, it’s just going to push them into the next street,” Recor said. “You’d have to legislate a specific area for them.” Council President Lloyd Martin noted that the city has plenty of extra space in the West Ocean City Park and Ride that could be used for such a purpose. “It’s a legitimate complaint,” said
Mayor Rick Meehan. “They’re actually staging their business in the street and not on their own property. It may be that they have to find their own private lots to do this.” However, cabbies contend that they have already established the right to stage business in public streets, via paying the city for the medallions that give them the right to operate a taxi in the resort’s limits. The city initially sold 170 medallions for $1,500 each when the program was implemented in 2010. Additionally, the town gets a 25 percent cut of the sale price every time a medallion changes hands; cabbies are free to openly trade their medallions, although the market price of a limited supply has naturally risen above the initial 2010 price. The city’s fee also has a set minimum of $500, meaning that cabbies will essentially have to pay a higher tax rate if they sell their medallions for less than $2,000. The city had previously discussed raising the minimum, to raise the margin floor on transfers and raise the sale prices even higher. “This isn’t an anti-cab discussion,” Meehan cautioned. “This is a matter of how we can work with them to make the situation better for everybody.”

City anticipates bond issues in draft capital improvement plan Town to borrow $14.6 million against general fund over next five years ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) The Town of Ocean City this week rolled out its first draft of a new Capital Improvement Plan, a detailed financial and economic roadmap that anticipates a grand total of $127,748,930 in capital spending over the next five years. But despite the plan’s level of chronologic and fiscal rigidity, it remains to be seen where the gap will fall between what the city wants now and what it can afford later. The new five-year plan begins with the current 2013-2014 fiscal year and ends with 2017-2018. “That’s not to say at the end of five years that we’re done and closed out,” City Engineer Terry McGean said. “This is a living document.” The CIP features projects that, according to McGean, consist of highvalue, long-life physical assets that present a significant benefit to the community. Such projects can be paid for through a multitude of funding mech-
anisms, some of which present less of ier to deal with fiscally. Other projects, however, will require a fiscal challenge than others. In a number of cases, the city will be able to the city to pay directly out of its general support specific improvements by pay- fund, which is supported almost ening with the user fees or taxes associ- tirely by property tax revenue, or issue ated with those improvements, or bonds to be repaid through the general borrowing against the projected future fund. The current draft of the CIP calls for income from those fees and taxes. For instance, the renovation of the roughly $7 million in general fundconvention center to include a theater backed bonds to be issued in the coming year for space, slated to projects includbegin this fall, in“If a stormwater utility is not ing the expansion cludes $5.7 milof the skate park lion of state grant the decision of the Mayor and and downtown financing and Council, you still will need that recreation fields, $8.3 million of the construction bond money bormillion per year as part of the of a new Ocean rowed against the street improvements” City Beach Patrol projected future Headquarters, income of the TERRY MCGEAN roof replacecity’s food tax, City Engineer ments at the Pubwhich is authorlic Safety ized by the state to Building and the finance the conmunicipal garage and service center at vention center. Other work, particularly in the water 65th Street, as well as the next two and wastewater departments, will be fi- years’ worth of canal dredging work to nanced with bonds scheduled to be re- remove silt from the city’s bayside wapaid with the fees levied by those terways. Adjacent property owners could pay departments. According to city Finance Director for canal work, although that would be Martha Bennett, user fee and tax pro- up to the council’s discretion. The skate ceeds have been consistent enough to park and recreation area expansion more than fulfill these obligations, should be done to coincide with next meaning these projects are much eas- year’s rebuilding of St. Louis Avenue if

it is to be done at all, McGean noted, although this would depend on the city settling issues with its lease of part of the property, owned by the county. “There are some coordination issues there…if you recall, the plan for the recreation complex spans both sides of St. Louis Avenue and we would be making some pretty drastic changes to the road as part of that project,” McGean said. By the end of 2018, a total of $14.6 million in general fund bonds is slated to be issued, according to the draft CIP. This will bring the city close to its selfimposed bonding limit, but not over, McGean said. The town’s longstanding policy has been to limit its annual debt retirement payments to no more than eight percent of its total annual spending. The current year’s margin stands at 6.9 percent. “That’s the number that if we’re approaching any sort of limit, that’s the one we would run up against,” McGean told City Council. Also of particular concern are the city’s roads. A 2007 study indicated that the town had $40 million worth of road repair work to be done over the next two decades. Under the draft CIP, $25 million will be put into roads in the next five years. “We’ve talked about highways and

Streets slated for $25 million of improvements through 2018 streets as our largest need, and this plan reflects that,” McGean said. “Streets are clearly the highest cost at $25 million over the next five years.” However, $1 million per year of this money comes from stormwater utility fees, the so-called ‘rain tax’ that Maryland has authorized but Ocean City is not yet required to implement. If the city declines to raise money for its drains beneath its roads by charging recurring fees, the money will still have to come from elsewhere. “If a stormwater utility is not the decision of the Mayor and Council, you still will need that million per year as part of the street improvements,” McGean said. “If we drop the stormwater utility, it doesn’t mean that the streets budget drops from three million a year to two million. You still have to make up that million.” When combined with other street projects, however, the city’s annual general fund contribution for roads rises far above the $2 million in general repaving work that is budgeted. The 2014-2015 budget will require $4.8 million to be paid out-of-pocket for roads – nearly quadruple the contribution of $1.17 million that the city struggled to make this year. That number will rise to over $5 million for 2015-2016, a burden on the general fund that the city has no guar-
antee it will be able to make. “That’s the number that’s in the plan, but it doesn’t mean that’s the number that will be in the budget when that year comes around,” said City Manager David Recor. Also of immediate issue is the beach patrol building, which involves a property swap in which the town will give the Ocean City Development Corporation the old beach patrol property on Dorchester Street for the development corporation’s model block project – if the development corporation surrenders its property on Talbot Street, one block north, as a new beach patrol site. The city’s Parks and Recreation Commission discussed this week possible ways to bring the project’s cost down from the projected $2 million. Councilman Dennis Dare asked if the
city could wait to issue bonds until after final costs for the project were determined, so as to not borrow more than needed. The beach patrol headquarters project could begin as soon as this fall, but bonds would not be bid until the end of the year. “You can’t pay for something with bond proceeds without legislative action before you start the work,” Bennett cautioned. However, the council could vote to forward-fund the project, paying expenses out of the city’s operating reserve and reimbursing it once bond money has been borrowed. “I think the issue then becomes how much we’re comfortable spending before we go out to the bond market,” McGean said. “You’re not spending all the costs at once, but if you wait until

The construction of a new beach patrol headquarters is likely one of the city’s most dire needs, given the poor state of the current building, which was considered unfit for use by the Ocean City Police Department in 1993, spurring the construction of the 65th Street Public Safety Building.

County promotes National Preparedness Month WCES encourages area residents and businesses to plan for emergencies (Aug. 16, 2013) Worcester County Emergency Services will participate in National Preparedness Month (NPM) in September to increase preparedness on the Eastern Shore. The event, now in its ninth year, is a nationwide effort hosted by The Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps encouraging households, businesses and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies. One of NPMâ€™s key messages is to be
prepared in the event an emergency causes you to be self-reliant for three days without utilities and electricity, water service, access to a supermarket or local services, and maybe without response from police, fire or rescue. Preparations start with four steps: Be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community, and identify sources of information in your community that will be helpful before, during and after an emergency. Make a plan for what to do in an emergency. Build an emergency supply kit. Get involved. Preparedness is a shared responsi-
bility. It takes a whole community to prepare for a disaster. This yearâ€™s National Preparedness Month focuses on turning awareness into action by encouraging all individuals and all communities nationwide to make an emergency preparedness plan. Find preparedness facts at http://community.fema.gov/connect.t i/READYNPM and www.co.worcester.md.us/EmergencyServices/emerse rvindex.aspx Organizations interested in scheduling a presentation on disaster preparedness should to call Worcester County Emergency Management Planner Tom Kane at 410-632-3081.

Dare said, noting that the city has been able to maintain an â€œAAâ€? bond rating from S&P. â€œArenâ€™t these the same agencies that rated mortgage-backed securities â€˜AAAâ€™ until the financial collapse?â€? asked Councilman Brent Ashley rhetorically. â€œIâ€™m not saying we canâ€™t borrow money for certain things, Iâ€™m just saying that we canâ€™t rely on the rating agencies as justification or to make these decisions for us,â€? Ashley said. â€œWe have to use our own knowledge.â€?

Station 4 will be built; FD to move to park’s garage in interim New building will provide additional space, live-in accommodations for co. ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) The reconstruction of Station 4, the Ocean City Fire Department’s 130th Street outpost, looks to be a done deal as City Council approved a final price for the facility’s construction this week just shy of $2.7 million. Savings over the budgeted cost of the project will be used to convert the city’s parks maintenance warehouse on Jamaica Avenue into a temporary fire station while the work is being completed. The winning bid for construction was Gillis Gilkerson of Salisbury at a price of $2,692,018, City Engineer Terry McGean said. Even with $131,125 in architectural fees added, the total figure is still well under the $3.35 million allocated to the project. The city borrowed that money in a 2012 municipal bond issuance. The department named the rebuilding of the 130th street substation as its top priority for capital projects back in 2009, due to the concentration of high rises and year-round residents in the area Station 4 serves. Federal stimulus money was anticipated for the project but never came through, leaving the preliminary plans for the building to sit until the city could leverage a bond to borrow for the project. Although the facility has been scaled back considerably from its initial proposal, including eliminating a number of energy-efficiency designs that would’ve been beneficial but too expensive, the new building will still provide 11,500 square feet of space. The engine bay and garage will have over one-third more room than the current Station 4. Accommodations for livein crews, such as a kitchen, are also in the plans. Construction of the new station is expected to begin in September, McGean said. While work is under way, the OCFD will relocate its operation to the Park and Recreation Department’s garage at the northern terminus of Jamaica Avenue, only a few blocks from the station. “We looked at four alternative loca-
tions,” said OCFD Chief Chris Larmore. These included the Bethany Beach Fire Company’s Station 2 in Fenwick Island, the Ocean City Public Works station on Gorman Avenue, the Ocean City Beach Patrol post on 130th Street and the parks building. “The goal was to try to keep us as close to the existing building as we could, because that location has proven to be the best for response,” Larmore said. The parks building would require limited modification to be used as a firehouse, since it already has garage doors large enough to for the engines. “They also have an area that we could pretty easily convert to a live-in area,” Larmore said.

They also located a backpack Shy had thrown into the marsh. That backpack contained drug paraphernalia, police said. During a search of the car, which the New York City Police Department had reported as stolen, police found a small amount of marijuana. Police charged Shy with various charges related to the possession of the stolen vehicle, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia and nine traffic citations.

Church custodian charged with killing woman to be tried in Del. Worcester County Stateâ€™s Attorney Oglesby drops all charges against Burton NANCY POWELL Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) The Delaware church custodian charged in the June 2012 killing of a woman who also worked at the church will not be tried in Maryland. Worcester County Stateâ€™s Attorney Beau Oglesby dropped all charges against Matthew Nicholas Burton on Monday.
â€œThe state enters a nolle prosse with respect to all charges,â€? Oglesby said in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. That same day, charges were filed against Burton in Delaware, where his crimes are alleged to have taken place. Burton, 29, is accused of kidnapping Nicole Bennett, 35, and then raping and killing her on June 14, 2012. A walker found her body at about 9 a.m. the next day in a ditch embankment on Swamp Road, a dirt road about six miles from Bay Shore Community Church in Gumboro, Del, where Burton and Bennett worked. Bennettâ€™s husband had reported her missing an hour earlier. Delaware State Police found Bennettâ€™s locked vehicle, with her personal items inside, parked in the church lot. They learned that both Bennett and Burton had been inside the church that night. DNA reportedly linked Burton, a sex offender, to the murder and he was arrested near Rehoboth on July 6, 2012. The investigation by Maryland State Police and Delaware State Police into the murder continued while Burton was held in the Worcester See CRIMES on Page 18A

Crimes committed in Del., Burton will not be tried in Maryland County Jail. “During the thorough and comprehensive investigation, evidence was discovered indicating that the crimes were committed in Delaware,” a Delaware State Police press release issued Monday stated. That investigation also revealed Bennett was dead before her body was left along Swamp Road and that she had died of asphyxiation. “Burton is currently incarcerated in Maryland on a fugitive warrant from Delaware, pending extradition,” the press release stated. “He will be formally charged upon his return.” In February, Oglesby had filed his intent to seek a sentence of death and also to seek a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for Burton, who had been charged with first- and second-degree murder, firstand second-degree rape, third- and fourth-degree sex offense, kidnapping and first-degree assault. The following month, he withdrew his notice of intent to seek a death sentence after state legislators abolished the death penalty. Katy C. O’Donnell and Kay A. Beehler of the Office of the Public Defender Aggravated Homicide Division have represented Burton. In an Aug. 5 letter to Oglesby and Deputy State’s
Continued from Page 16A
Attorney Abigail Marsh, they wrote that they intended to provide representation to Burton at any and all hearings related to hearings and extradition proceedings that could be held as a result of charges filed against him in Delaware. On June 28, they filed a motion for sanctions for “the state’s failure to comply with the court’s order on the defendant’s motion to compel discovery.” The defendant’s motion was filed April 18. On May 7, the court issued an order and memorandum requiring the state to produce certain items of dis-
covery (evidence) to the defendant. The state failed to comply with the court’s order and has failed to respond to informal requests from defense counsel, according to court documents. Items the state allegedly did not produce included surveillance videos, especially those from the Gumboro Fire Department and the Gumboro Auto Sales, and original address lists from the church. “The state’s failure to provide the defense with requested discovery will unduly prejudice defendant” and will constitute a violation of his rights to due process and effective assistance
of counsel, according to papers filed with the court by O’Donnell and Beehley. Marsh’s response, filed July 5, was succinct. “The state denies each and every, and all of the allegations contained therein. Wherefore, it is respectfully requested that the defendant’s motion be denied.” The motion had not been ruled on before Monday morning. Then Oglesby declared that the state would not prosecute Burton in Worcester County. The trial had been scheduled for Oct. 29 through Nov. 6.
Two women offering services online booked in OC Detectives respond to advertisements, ladies charged with prostitution NANCY POWELL Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) Two women who advertised their very personal services in Ocean City online were charged last week with prostitution. In each case, an Ocean City detec-
tive responded to the woman’s ad and made arrangements to meet. After details, such as the cost of services, were finalized in a resort hotel room, the women were arrested. In one case, a detective saw numerous online ads for escorts and massage services. Reviews indicated the women placing the ads were performing sex acts. One ad posted Aug. 1 stated, “In TowN ToDay BlOnDiE With A Bod . . . by the Beach – 26” and included several photos of a woman in seductive poses.
On Aug. 5, the detective called the number in the ad and told the woman who answered that he would like to meet up with her. Pretending to reside in another area, he told her he would be in Ocean City for the White Marlin Open on Wednesday, Aug. 7.

After a sexually-related conversation, they agreed on a price of $600 for three hours, but she said more money would be appreciated. She also said she couldnâ€™t wait to see him. On Wednesday, the pre-arranged date day, the woman called him and he said he was about one hour away from Ocean City. He told her he wanted to meet up with her for two hours. When the detective was in the hotel in the northern end of town, he called her again and they agreed on a price of $500 for two hours. About 20 minutes later, she called him and said she wanted to be sure he was the only person in the room. Seven minutes later, she knocked on the hotel room door and the detective opened the door to see that the woman was the same women whose photos were in the online ad. After a few minutes of talk, she asked if he was ready to get started and he responded by pulling out $500, which she told him to place on the dresser. She picked up the cash, counted it and put it in her pocket. She started undressing and then walked toward him. The arrester gave an unspecified
signal to alert other detectives and she was arrested. The detective learned that â€œDestinyâ€? was actually Jessica Rose Saunders, 27, of New Castle, Del. In the second case, another Ocean City detective saw an ad dated Aug. 6 that stated, â€œHosting in OC!! If you like a Sexy Blond Babe, then Iâ€™m your Girl!!! Call 4 Specials $$$$ - 23.â€? He responded to the ad by e-mail and received an e-mail instructing him to call, which he did. He and the woman, who said her name was Abbey, arranged to meet in an Ocean City hotel the next day. When the woman arrived at his hotel room, the detective said he had never been with a prostitute and asked how it worked. â€œAbbeyâ€? told him he had to show her money up front. She said her price was $250 and he handed her $260, which she put in her purse. She went into the hotel roomâ€™s bathroom for a few minutes. When she exited, Ocean City detectives and Homeland Security agents arrested her. The woman was identified as Andrea Niki Hall, 31, of Ridley, Pa.

Mosquitoes sample from OP area tests positive for West Nile Wor. health department offers tips to help reduce risk of infection by virus (Aug. 16, 2013) The Worcester County Health Department received notification that a single sample of mosquitoes from the Ocean Pines area have tested positive for the West Nile virus. This is the first West Nile viruspositive mosquito sample for Worcester County this year. The
virus was first identified in Worcester County in 2003. The health department offers the following tips to help prevent contact with mosquitoes and reduce the risk of infection by the West Nile virus: Stay indoors at dawn and dusk. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants while outside. Use Environmental Protection Agency-registered bug repellant and follow package instructions. Get rid of mosquito breeding sites: Remove discarded tires from
your property; throw away waterholding containers; change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in bird baths weekly; drill holes in tire swings to drain water; keep children’s wading pools empty and on their sides when they are not being used. West Nile virus is most common during summer and fall months. Infected mosquitoes can transfer it to humans, birds, horses and other animals. Since mosquitoes can breed in as
little as a quarter inch of water, the recent rain may attract more mosquitoes. Most people infected with West Nile virus show no symptoms; however, some people may have mild to severe symptoms including swollen lymph glands, a rash, fever, headache and disorientation. The easiest and best way to avoid this virus is to prevent mosquito bites. For more tips and information about West Nile virus, visit http://worcesterhealth.org.

Lyons sentenced to 20 years in prison for heroin possession During vehicle search, 1,678 bags of drug found valued at more than $33K NANCY POWELL Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) The Ocean Pines man who was caught last fall with the largest amount of heroin in recent history in Worcester County was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison. Judge Richard Bloxom suspended all but 10 years of that sentence, but he does not anticipate that Leck Lyons will remain out of prison after he is released and serving five years of supervised probation. “It doesn’t strike me as likely that
you’ll successfully complete your probation,” Bloxom told Lyons in Circuit Court in Snow Hill. Bloxom noted that Lyons had “engaged in criminal activity for many, many years” and had become “a drug dealer of some significance.” Lyons, who worked in construction, had been under investigation by the Worcester County Criminal Enforcement Team after its members learned he was selling heroin. After obtaining a search and seizure warrant, they stopped him at the intersection of Route 113 and Bishopville Road on Oct. 19. He and a passenger were arrested. A search of the vehicle turned up 1,678 individually wrapped bags of heroin, with a street value of more than $33,000.

“The misery those 1,678 dosages represent is incalculable,” Bloxom said. “Heroin has to be one of the most pernicious substances ever found by mankind.” Lyons pleaded guilty March 5 to possession of a large amount of heroin. In exchange for that guilty plea, the Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office did not prosecute the other charges against him. The pre-sentence investigation revealed Lyons had a criminal background with convictions for burglaries and thefts. State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby said Lyons’ first conviction for a controlled dangerous substance was a significant one and Lyons had “jumped into the pool at the deep end.” Lyons defense attorney, Mike Far-

low, said Lyons had begun using marijuana at age 13 and graduated to heavier drugs. “The cleanest period he’s had is the time he’s been in jail [since his arrest in October],” Farlow said. Lyons blamed others for his problems with drugs. “People around me, they’ve always been a problem,” he said. “I was hanging with the wrong people.” He had been fighting drugs on and off for his entire life, but had only been selling heroin for five months, he said. Despite his addiction to drugs, the mother of two of his three children spoke highly of him as she fought back tears. “He’s been a great dad,” Tracy Cangro said.

Second Out of the Darkness Community Walk, Sept. 28 Annual resort event held to raise funds for suicide prevention, awareness (Aug. 16, 2013) Suicide prevention activists will gather for the Second Annual Out of the Darkness Community Walk for Suicide Prevention at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Worcester County Health Department on Caroline Street in Ocean
City. “Because suicide rates in Worcester County and surrounding communities are historically higher than both state and national averages, the Ocean City walk to bring awareness of suicide’s risk is especially important,” said Brittany Hines, Worcester County Health Department walk organizer. “The funds raised by walkers’ pledges are used exclusively in suicide prevention programs, both nationally and by local organizations.”
Like other fundraising walks, participants are asked to solicit pledges from friends, colleagues and family members. Many form teams in memory of lost loved ones, carrying photos and mementos of their friend or family member. Walkers will join thousands of people nationwide to raise funds to support research aimed at improving our understanding of suicide and how to prevent it. This year’s walk sponsors include

Crime incidents on Boardwalk less concentrated than previous Resort-wide arrests down for July; drug violations, weapons up on boards ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) With crime – or at least the perception of it by visitors – continuing to be a hot topic in the resort, the Ocean City Police Department released a number of statistics this week that show police activity continuing to decline throughout the resort. Selected statistics show crime relatively unchanged on the Boardwalk, although some more serious offenses are up. Incidents also appear to be more spread out than in years past, although still centered in a few key areas of congregation. The OCPD issued ‘heat graphs’ of Boardwalk arrests for 2010-2013 at this week’s Police Commission meeting, in which a higher frequency of arrests is shown by a darker color on a map of the city’s premier attraction. “As you move up the Boardwalk, you’re seeing a little more red than in years past,” said OCPD Chief Ross Buzzuro. “It would appear to be a little more spread out.” Still, incidents are still clearly concentrated in a few key areas: around the South First Street Plaza, between First and Second Streets, and between Fourth and Fifth Streets. At least one of these zones, between First and Second Street, contains several stores that have had repeated violations for drug distribution. “The stores that you suspended the business licenses on are right there,” OCPD Capt. Michael Colbert noted to Mayor Rick Meehan. Last year, Meehan suspended the business licenses for two head shops on the stretch for repeated narcotics busts. Overall, Boardwalk arrests for June rose to 213 this year from 193 last year, but are still less than the 248 seen in

2011. May arrests this year were down to 43 from 57 last year. Most major categories of crime, like theft and assault, stayed fairly even. Drug violations were up this June to 41 over 24 in June 2012, and weapons violations were up to 11 from 5 last year. “We have been seeing an uptick in weapons,” Buzzuro said. Last week, Meehan announced that the city planned to expand its camera system on the Boardwalk to combat public fears over crime and an allegedly hostile environment. “This will be very helpful in determining future deployment and future camera placement,” Buzzuro said of

Department’s total service calls decrease 4.1 percent for July the Boardwalk statistics. In the resort as a whole, police activity continues to drop. Calls for service in July – excluding routine services such as traffic stops and business assistance – were down 4.1 percent over July 2012. Of these, officer-initiated service was down 1.6 percent, while service resulting from citizen complaints was down 8.1 percent. Comparative arrest numbers have been difficult to establish this year, given new state laws which allow officers to issue criminal citations for certain minor offenses, instead of taking offenders into custody for booking at the 65th Street station. According to the OCPD’s data, July 2013 saw 473 custodial arrests and 207 criminal citations issued that likely would’ve been full arrests before the criminal citation policy was passed in Annapolis. Even combined, however, the total is still less than the 832 arrests made in July 2012. Of the 680 total arrests and criminal-level citations last month, 230 were for drugs and 23 were for weapons, compared to 290 for drugs and 24 for weapons in July of 2012.

Commission discusses clearing clouded marketing situation Leaders support long-term study to resolve conflicting evidence on OC visitorship ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) Momentum seems to be growing for the development of a long-term strategy to solve some of the resort’s unsolved questions regarding marketing, as the city’s Tourism Commission issued its second month of more comprehensive visitation statistics this week and discussed the possibility of a long-term strategy study. As it has in the past, the city earmarked $40,000 this year, as part of its overall $5.5 million tourism promotion budget, to do market research on its advertising. Given that data on the city’s marketing campaigns was still strong, the town spent last year’s allocation on additional advertising. MGH, the city’s contracted advertising firm, recommended forgoing another study this year given that the market is been massively diluted by spending from New Jersey. Earlier this year, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie authorized $22 million
in tourism advertising for the state, on study currently, he said. “With all the questions that we have top of the already-sizable municipal budgets of some Jersey coast resorts. on all the undefined areas still … we Atlantic City’s own marketing coffers have the most blacked-out business model possible,” add another $20 Shockley said. to $25 million “Every year we alone, MGH Presexpect to make ident Andy Malis more money than said. “With all the questions that the last, but we “Do we want to we have on all the undefined don’t know why, be spending more areas still … we have the and that’s unsusmoney to do a tainable.” survey when we most blacked-out business A long-term know we’re outmodel possible.

supportive of a long-term tourism plan, especially in light of city leaders’ frequently heated debates over what the numbers mean. “The ‘chest-thumping’ we need, so to speak, is this kind of approach,” Recor said in reference to Councilman Brent Ashley’s assertion that Mayor Rick Meehan had said he “wasn’t going to thump his chest” in response to the city’s crime and its potential impact on tourism. The city has often used demoflush numbers, which estimate population based on wastewater flow, and room tax returns as a measure of visitation. But these numbers have been called into question and are easy to manipulate. Demoflush is subject to changes in plumbing efficiency and recirculation at the city’s water treatment plant and room tax may be a reflection of changes in room rates or the number of condo owners registering their units. “Some people take it and run in their direction, and other people run the other direction,” Shockley said. “We need to not be getting four or five versions of what’s happening.” Although he has maintained that tourism in the resort is more vibrant than other people, like Ashley, have painted it, Meehan said he was interested in revisiting the city’s reliance on weekend events.

Web visits, guide requests up; trash, bus ridership sees drop â€œWe looked to events to make sure we had the visitors after 2008 and I think that worked well,â€? Meehan said. â€œNow weâ€™re in a place where we have to modify that plan.â€? For the last two months, Abbott has been issuing additional metrics in a monthly report. For June, the cityâ€™s public works indicators other than demoflush â€“ trash collection and bus ridership â€“ are tracking the same, with six percent decreases in both. The web marketing effort continues to boom, with 11.2 percent more clickthroughs on the city Web site over last June. Facebook fans and Twitter followers are up 28.5 percent and 38.1 percent, respectively.
Requests for the cityâ€™s hard-copy visitors guide are also up 29.5 percent. The top three area codes for mailing the guides in June were Bethel Park, Pa., Cumberland and Dundalk. But how many of those click-throughs and requests for material translate into visitors is one of the things a study would aim to determine. In addition, Malis said some in the community have questioned whether the city should be using broadcast advertising as heavily as it is to market to a wide audience it may not want. â€œWeâ€™re advertising on generally wholesome or content-neutral programs,â€? Malis said. â€œI think weâ€™re in the best place we can be with that.â€?

WMO provides scientists with rare research opportunities CLARA VAUGHN Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) For most, last week’s White Marlin Open was a chance to socialize, unwind and revel in the day’s top catch. For a group of scientists, though, it brought a rare opportunity to study one of the area’s most popular sport fish. “The tournaments are the only places we can see these fish and sample these fish,” said Emily Loose, a graduate student at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. She’s studying the scales on marlin and other species, piecing together how different fish are related. “There’s very little known about marlin in general,” she said. The fishing tournament wrapped up last Friday with 18 white marlin brought to shore (and 376 released), where Salisbury University biology professor Ann Barse has been collecting samples that range from gills to parasitic worms for 15 years. She specializes in monogenoids — a group of flat worms. Marlin spend most of their lives in the open sea and are difficult to access. At least half of the literature on Barse’s specialty dates back to the 1800s, she said. “It’s a chaotic mess,” she said. Mistakes in the information are “copious” because
“they didn’t have the capabilities that we have today.” One parasite might be described as living only on swordfish, for example, but she has found it in marlin, too, Barse said. “If anything looks whacky, we try to get to the bottom of it,” she said. By examining the parasites, one worm at a time, she aims to get a detailed picture of their relationship to the fish and other characteristics. She’s put together a list of species she’s found living on Atlantic billfish. “I’d be happy if I could catalogue and describe — or re-describe — all the monogenoids (flat worms) on our local billfish,” she said. The research helps scientists understand how parasites can change the fish’s tissue, said biology major at Pennsylvania State University Katie Del Guercio, who joined Barse’s team this year to get some field experience. “I usually sell the T-shirts here, so I upgraded,” she said at the tournament last Wednesday. “I’m learning a lot about how you conduct research and the chemicals you use, and how to get interested in something.” Laura Hopkins, a junior biology student at Salisbury University, also helped See SCIENTISTS on Page 30A

Scientists study and take samples of fish Barse this year. She’s learned the locations of different parasites on the fish over the week, she said. “I’m really excited to be collecting the specimens we’re going to be researching in the fall,” Hopkins said. Tournaments like the White Marlin Open are the only opportunities most researchers have to access billfish and have led to important discoveries, such as the existence of the roundscale spearfish, an animal so similar to white marlin that they both count as white marlin in the tournament, but with an entirely different genetic makeup, Barse said. “Anything we can do to advance the knowledge of these fish is beneficial,” Loose said.

(Aug. 16, 2013) Kelly Brinkley has been named the new Worcester County volunteer services manager. Brinkley earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Wesleyan College in Georgia. She has extensive experience working with school systems and diverse nonprofit agencies. Brinkley currently acts as the parent coordinator for the Wicomico County Middle Schools STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program. She also provides financial management counseling in the community with Oak Ridge Baptist Church. She has served as the Tiger Woods Foundation’s admissions chairman for the annual AT&T National Golf Tournament in Bethesda, served on the Delmarva Chicken Festival committee, and chaired both the annual Memory Walk for the Alzheimer’s Association and the scholarship fund for Camp Odyssey. She served as member of the Wicomico County Chamber of Commerce marketing committee and volunteered with HALO Ministries, a faith based ministry providing programs and services for the homeless. “Working with nonprofits, developing school partnerships, fundraising, memory walks and church ministries have all prepared me to serve Worcester
County as the new volunteer services manager,” Brinkley said. “It’s all given me a good perspective on the needs of both citizens and employees in the community. I understand the need for these fundamental services, because I’ve immersed myself in their causes, and there is a real need for volunteers working together in these diverse arenas to keep our communities moving forward and thriving. Volunteers are part of why the quality of life here on the Eastern Shore can’t be beat.” Brinkley took over for former Volunteer Services Manager Cyndy Howell who retired June 30. Before joining Worcester County, she worked at the One Stop Job Market in Salisbury in the Employment Division of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. She and her husband, Bobby, have two children, Morgan and Austin. The mission of Volunteer Services is to involve residents in local government by promoting volunteerism by both individuals and groups. The department recruits, trains and supervises more than 500 volunteers serving in various departments and agencies throughout Worcester County. The goal of volunteer services is to build and sustain stronger and more viable communities.

City receives favorable re-mapping for flood insurance program High-risk, high-premium ‘V’ zone preliminarily moved east of dune line ZACK HOOPES Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) In what was called a “major coup” for the resort, new flood maps have, preliminarily, pushed the highest risk zones in the resort east of the dune line, potentially saving oceanfront property owners significant amounts of money in the National Flood Insurance Program. “We put the dunes in 25 years ago this year, and they worked,” said city Planning and Community Development Director Matt Margotta. “We’ve taken whole, large areas out of our flood zone. This very much encourages redevelopment, given the decrease in insurance costs that we’ll likely see.” Most of the resort, under the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s preliminary maps, will now be an ‘A’ zone. Such zones require property owners to carry flood insurance, but are less costly than ‘V’ zones, which denote high-velocity impact risk. “The ‘V’ zone is a velocity zone usually associated with beaches,” Margotta said. “That zone now ends almost right along our dune line.” However, the maps are not set in stone and could be revised over the next two years while FEMA works to finalize them. “Until the government gets done, we’re not sure what it’s going to be exactly,” said Reese Cropper of Insurance Management Group. “But we weren’t sure the dunes would be credited [as blocking the ‘V’ zone] and that is a major coup. Rates are going up, and a lot of people will see less of an increase now.” Since the inception of the NFIP in 1968, the Federal Emergency Management 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 FEMA’s guidelines relatively early. The city was first flood mapped on June 6, 1971, and on July 2, 1973, it adopted its Flood Plain Ordinance in order to conform to FEMA’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. “We’re currently ranked 29 out of the 22,000 communities that FEMA rates for flood protection,” Margotta said. “This modes very well for us in the insur-
ance program.” The NFIP was re-authorized by the federal legislature last year for a period of five years, despite the program’s increasing financial vulnerability. But in order to get the system back on sound footing, the re-authorization mandated rate increases that will, in theory, help to make the program more self-sustaining. Most of those increases would hit the higher-risk areas, particularly ‘V’ zones,

with increases of up to 15 percent, Cropper said. However, he and other business leaders have lobbied that the city’s manmade dunes should be counted as a suitable obstacle that would prevent impact and downgrade the oceanfront ‘V’ zone to an ‘A’ zone. The last FIRMs were compiled in the early 1980s, before the city had begun beach replenishment and at a time when many properties were built beyond the natural dune line.

With a belt of live grenades strapped to his waist, the blast was so severe that it blew off both of his legs, and most of the rear of his body. Not expected to live, his buddy carried him to safety, frantically trying to control the bleeding. When he arrived in the hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, surgeons removed what was left of his legs at the hip, using the tissue and muscle to repair what was left of his backside. Following a lengthy in-patient stay at Walter Reed National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, he is now rehabilitating at its out-patient facility, Building 62. While Fidler, and the thousands of young men and women who have suffered severe physical and mental injuries as a result of the War on Terror, are receiving the best medical care possible, they face the rest of their lives needing ongoing supportâ€“everything from customized wheelchairs, accessible homes, specialized vehicles, and a wide variety of physical and psychological assistance.

The salon will donate all of the proceeds of any service including haircuts and color to Fidler and his family. According to Studio 6 founder, Shannon Gompers, the event is a way to help someone who has â€œgiven their all for our country.â€? â€œMark is an amazing young man, and Iâ€™ve heard about his struggle for some time now. I want to do what I can to help him, and raise awareness for our nationâ€™s wounded warriors who are all heroes in my eyes,â€? she said. â€œI hope everyone in the Ocean City area will come over and help support Mark.â€?

Berlin All-Star team falls in Mid-Atlantic regional semifinals LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor
OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN
Tommy Jones of the Kingfisher/OdinSpear crew (right of fish), lands an 83-pound white marlin last Wednesday, putting him in the lead in the 40th annual White Marlin Open at the close of the scale that evening. The marlin finished in first place and was worth more than $1.2 million.
White marlin weighing 83 lbs. takes top honors LISA CAPITELLI ■ Managing Editor (Aug. 16, 2013) Several qualifying marlin where brought to the Harbour Island Marina scale, and after five days of fishing, an 83-pound white held the top spot in the coveted division during the 40th annual White Marlin Open and was worth more than $1.2 million. A total of 262 boats were entered in the tournament, held Aug. 5-9, which saw a payout of $2,475,034. “We had a very good tournament and the weather overall was good,” said co-director and founder, Jim Motsko. “We’re fortunate we got more boats this year, which I’m very happy about.” In 2012, 253 boats registered and approximately $2.3 million was awarded to the winners. WHITE MARLIN DIVISION: Just before 8p.m. last Wednesday, the OdinSpear arrived at the 14th Street scale with Tommy Jones’ white marlin on board. As the numbers on the scale rose, the cheers from the crowd grew louder. The scale stopped at 83 pounds and the fish took over first place. “I knew it was a good fish and I was very excited about the opportunity to get it to the boat…when we finally landed him, I was very, very excited because I knew we had a good fish,” Jones said. Based on the crew’s estimations, they thought the marlin would be in the high 70-pound range. Needless to say, they
were beyond thrilled it weighed in at 83 pounds. “The fish was pretty big in it’s girth… fortunately we had a fat fish so it worked out great in our favor,” Jones said. He fought the marlin for about 40 minutes. “The fish fought hard and I knew it was a big fish,” he said. “He took a couple runs, but fortunately we were finally able to get him on the boat.” Jones and his Kingfisher teammates fished on the OdinSpear during the tournament because the Kingfisher had some mechanical difficulties. Jones has been competing in the White Marlin Open for more than 20 years. He won third place in 2010 for an 80.5-pound white marlin. “It doesn’t get better than this,” he said Wednesday after landing the marlin that was worth $1,201,742.93. “I’ve been waiting for this all my life,” he said. Before Jones’ marlin was weighed, three 77-pound whites were tied for first place. Jeremy Duffie landed the first 77pound marlin last Tuesday aboard Billfisher. The other two were boated Wednesday by Debbie McCann (Sea Mistress) and Larry McKinley (Sea Toy). According to tiebreaker rules, anglers who do not use a gaff (a pole with a sharp hook on the end that is used to stab a large fish and then lift it into the boat) is declared the winner. A gaff was not used to get McCann’s and McKinley’s marlin onto their respective boats. It was used to on
Duffie’s fish. Motsko said the rule was implemented years ago when there was a rumor that anglers were gaffing fish, bringing them on board and if they were too small they were throwing the marlin back into the water. Last Thursday, Richard Kornahrens landed a 77-pound white aboard Lights Out. The fish was not gaffed. McCann’s, McKinley’s and Kornahrens’ fish ended in a three-way tie for second place. It is the first time that has happened during the Open, Motsko said. The teams each received $102,498.13. Marlin conservation is emphasized every year. During the 2013 competition, 376 white marlin were released, while 18 were boated (95.43 percent). BLUE MARLIN DIVISION: No blue marlin met the tournament minimum of 500 pounds. One blue was boated and 42 were released (97.67 percent), according to www.whitemarlinopen.com. The prize money in the A, B, C, D (three heaviest white and blue marlin) added entry level calcutta went into the white marlin division. The Level F “Winner take all” pot for heaviest blue marlin–$212,910– went to the angler who landed the first place tuna. TUNA DIVISION: The tuna division was action packed all week. “The bigeye showed up and kept things interesting,” Motsko said. “I’m glad the bigeye tuna showed up. That gave a whole See ANGLERS on Page 40A
(Aug. 16,2013) The Berlin All-Star 1112-year-old team came up a little short of competing in the Little League World Series, when the local squad lost in the semifinal round of the Mid-Atlantic Regional tournament, held in Bristol, Conn. Aug. 2-11. “The (regional) competition, top to bottom, was better than what we faced most of the year, but I don’t think it was anything we weren’t ready for,” said Berlin Manager Cameron McDonough. “I don’t feel like we were playing our best baseball.” Berlin won its first regional game, Aug. 2, 5-4 over New Jersey. The next day, they earned a 6-2 victory over Delaware. On Aug. 5, Washington D.C. edged out Maryland’s representatives 1110. Pennsylvania shut out Berlin 2-0 the next day. Despite two losses, Berlin advanced to the Aug. 10 semifinal game where the team met Pennsylvania again. Broadcast live on ESPNU, Berlin was eliminated from the tournament, falling to the Lionville team 9-3. “We fell into a slump as a team and that ultimately caused problems,” McDonough said. “You have to hit the baseball to win and that proved to be the biggest issue for us. We (the coaches and players) still feel like we were the best team there.” Delaware topped Pennsylvania 8-2 In the regional final to advance to the Little League World Series. “It’s disappointing. If we were playing our best baseball, we could have won,” McDonough said. Overall, the Berlin team had a very successful season. The squad finished with an overall record of 12-3. Berlin went undefeated in District 8 competition. In six games, the boys outscored their opponents 95-9. They captured their third district title. As the top team in its district, Berlin advanced to the state tournament. The local group won all four if its games to take home the Maryland title. The Berlin athletes outscored their opponents during the state tournament 23-6. Berlin advanced and represented Maryland in the regional tournament. “I’m proud of the boys and what the team has accomplished the past three years. I wouldn’t trade anyone for anything,” McDonough said. “They’re a tremendous group of kids on and off the field. I’m blessed to have been a part of their lives for the past three years.”

Mid-Atlantic $500,000 fishing tournament begins Monday LIZ LANE Intern (Aug. 16, 2013) The Mid-Atlantic $500,000 is scheduled to begin Monday, as anglers compete for a chance to win big in the five-day fishing tournament. Mark Allen, promoter and event coordinator, said he expects 130-150 boats to participate this year. The 22nd annual competition is based out of Canyon Club Resort Marina in Cape May, but local participants may weight their daily catch at Sunset Marina
in West Ocean City. Anglers from this area interested in taking part in the tournament can register at Sunset Marina on Sunday from 1-4:30 p.m. A captain’s meeting will follow. Anglers can fish three of five days, Monday through Friday, Aug. 19-23. Weigh-ins are scheduled each day from 59 p.m. at each marina. Certified scales will be used to weigh blue and white marlin, tuna, dolphin and wahoo. Base entry fee is $6,000 to be eligible for the guaranteed $500,000 totally prize money (with 125-boat minimum). Added
entry-level calcuttas, ranging in cost from $1,000-$5,000 are also available. The Sperry Top-Sider On The Board Reward added bonus entry level is for anglers who have a top-three leader board fish (white marlin, blue marlin or tuna) each day. The cost to enter is $2,000.

Lady anglers stars of show this weekend during Poor Girls Open Competition, now in its 20th year, benefits ACS and breast cancer research LISA CAPITELLI Managing Editor (Aug. 16, 2013) Thursday was the first fishing day of the 20th annual Capt. Steve Harman’s Poor Girls Open and female anglers will have two more days, today and Saturday, to compete for cash prizes. As of Thursday morning, 96 boats have entered this year’s competition, although there is still time to register. Teams can sign up until through Saturday, but are not eligible for the added entry level calcuttas. Entry fee costs $450 per boat for up to three anglers. Additional anglers may be added at $50 each, with a maximum of six total per boat. Teams will fish one of the three tournament days. Weigh-ins will take place from 4-7:30 p.m. at Bahia Marina, 22nd Street, bayside. Pink Ribbon merchandise will be for sale and auction items will be set up near the weigh-in scale in the Bahia Marina/Fish Tales parking lot for anyone who wants to bid. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. Donations will be ac-
cepted for the American Cancer Society, as well. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams with the most billfish release points. There are also cash prizes for the three heaviest tuna and dolphin. Girls 16 and younger can participate in the junior angler division. “The tuna bite is really good right now. There were some beautiful dolphin and some bigeye caught during the White Marlin Open (Aug. 5-9), “ co-director Earl Conley said Monday. “I’ve talked to a few captains and this time of year [marlin fishing] should be red hot. It’s a matter of any day the bite could turn.” An awards luncheon is scheduled for Sunday, from noon to 2 p.m., at the Marlin Club in West Ocean City. Many women participate in the event annually, including cancer survivors. Although it is a competition, there is camaraderie among the lady anglers. “A day of fishing can bring so many people together for a common cause,” Conley said. “A lot of people are excited about the tournament. Because it’s for charity, people will fish it regardless.” Capt. Steve Harman and his wife, Pam, started the Poor Girls Open in 1994 to provide women with an opportunity to compete for prizes and money in a ladies-only tournament and to
raise money for local charities. Harman died in February 2004, so organizers thought it was appropriate the tournament be renamed in his memory. Women enjoy fishing in the tournament because it benefits a worthy cause — breast cancer research. Proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society and earmarked for breast cancer research and program development, under the “Pink Ribbon Classic” — a series of local events that benefit the organization. While some of the money is used for research on a national level, the remainder stays in the area to assist in local breast cancer awareness and patient programs and services. The competition has grown since its inception — eight boats participated in the first tournament and in 2012, 108 vessels carried 499 female anglers offshore. A total of $95,980 was paid out

to the 2012 winners. “That’s a lot of anglers. I’d love to set records this year and have more people,” Conley said. In 2012, the Harman family presented the American Cancer Society with a check for $62,500 during the tournament’s awards ceremony. Approximately $9,000 of the contribution came from money raised during Fish Tales’ summer-long cornhole competition, as well as its third annual “Clamming for a Cure” contest in July. The total donated by the Harman family through the tournament and other events over the past five years is about $312,000. “We have a ton of sponsorship this year,” Conley said. “I want to thank all the sponsors and the Harman family and all the lady anglers.” For more information about the event, call Bahia Marina at 410-2897438.
(Aug. 16, 2013) The annual Ocean City Lacrosse Classic kicked off Wednesday and competition will continue through Sunday in the resort. Tournament Director Bob Musitano said the Classic is the “largest adult tournament in the country.” This year, the action got started with a new “Rolling Surf” wheelchair division. The new division is an addition made by Musitano and Mark Flounlacker, a wheelchair athlete. The division consists of four teams from Maryland, Virginia, California and Colorado. Flounlacker coached and played on the Maryland team. The four teams went head-to-head on Wednesday and continued playing Thursday, Aug. 15, at Northside Park on 125th Street. Musitano said Flounlacker is a former teammate who approached him with the idea of adding the division. “It’s been a lot of work but Bob really took this under his wing and made it his baby,” said Flounlacker. “Bob provided [the wheelchair sports community] with the opportunity to play.” Flounlacker said he wanted to add the division to “give a good showcase of wheelchair sports.” In 2011, Flounlacker injured his spine when he fell from a tree stand while hunting. He is partially paralyzed from the waist down and now moves
around with crutches. Flounlacker said wheelchair sports are his outlet. “It was important for me to know I could have fun again,” he said. “[This tournament] is really the first time we all get together and compete against each other.” The tournament also consists of seven other divisions. Approximately 1,100 players on 115 teams are competing. The 53 Men’s Elite (18 and older) teams, 12 Master’s (35 and older) teams and eight Grandmaster’s (45 and older) teams began competition on Thursday at Northside Park and the Northern Worcester County Athletic Complex off Route 113 in Berlin. The teams will continue play throughout the weekend. The four Men’s King Neptune (50 and older) teams and the 31 Women’s Elite (18 and older) teams began playing today, Friday, at Northside Park. Championship matches for all divisions, except Rolling Surf, will be played Sunday. Each team is guaranteed four games, with a maximum of seven. Musitano said the event usually draws between 8,000-10,000 spectators who will see high-level lacrosse being played in more than 200 games. Proceeds from the Classic will be donated back to the community in the form of scholarships and local lacrosse support. Musitano said approximately $7,000 in scholarships is awarded to student-athletes at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, where he is the girls’ head lacrosse coach.

OPINION AUGUST 16, 2013
Maintain fairness on ococean.com If city officials want to operate a business enterprise, they should put up their own money rather than use the government’s. That is especially so if their intent is to go for the revenue with the taxpayer-supported Web site, ococean.com and turn that service into a government-sanctioned billboard for larger businesses at the expense of the smaller ones. As it stands now, the government-controlled Tourism Commission is considering turning the Convention and Visitors Bureau Web site into a commercial venture that would leave small operations somewhere down in the listings, while major enterprises with major budgets would be able to buy prime space. Mayor Rick Meehan said at this week’s commission meeting that pro-active businesses will have the opportunity to better their position and that those who are successful will rise to the top. “It’s just like any other business.” Well, yes, but this is not business, it is government, which should not be involving itself in the competition between commercial interests of any size. Besides, “successful” is a relative term. The many smaller shops, motels and dining establishments that constitute the backbone of the tourism industry here are just as successful in their own way as their much larger counterparts. The city’s obligation is to promote the resort overall and not to tilt the table in favor of a few or allow them to render smaller operators a little less successful. It also should be noted that a government-sponsored, agency-managed Web site would be going into direct competition with those owned and operated by private interests. That is not, or at least should not be, government’s role. The commission has authorized a survey to determine how convention and visitor bureau members feel about this proposal. The best answer to the survey’s central question would be a resounding no.

Paid parking a turnoff for visitors
Editor, The goal to increase revenue for the Town of Ocean City via paid on-street parking is not going over well with Ocean City vacationers. Visitors this summer season have shared with our Ocean City rental staff that if the town continues to move in the direction of paid onstreet parking that they have invested their last dollars to the OC economy. Several vacationing families have mentioned to us that they have other choices and these are folks that have been vacationing in Ocean City for many years. I heard Ocean City vacationers say this week when checking out that they had experienced the paid parking situation in North OC while on vacation this past week. These families along with other vacationing families shared that they had boycotted businesses, primarily one well known established OC restaurant, because they heard and/or read that the business was in favor of on-street paid parking. Whether it is the sequester, the weather or possibly competitive vacationer destinations or a combination thereof impacting our vacationers we have seen the vacation rentals in our Maryland beach rental operations decrease 5 percent as compared to last year, the first decrease since 2006. Several friends that are real estate brokers in Ocean City have shared that
they are experiencing similar downturns in their mini-week and weekly summer vacationer business. In light of this development, it will be highly counterproductive to implement fees such as the onstreet paid parking that will anger and discourage vacationers from visiting Ocean City. Finally and respectfully, our town leaders should always seek compromises. The current political divisiveness is very disturbing and rather than subsiding, it seems to continue to ratchet up. Let’s get a grip; we have our town’s future at stake! Jim Waggoner, VP/Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.
Changes not in best interest of town
Editor, All this talk about Ocean City going in the wrong direction over the last several years is not only true, but very sad. When June comes along the high school graduates take over for pretty much the entire month. Normal decent people don’t want to come here in June; there is just too much chaos. The drinking these teenagers are doing is so out of control. Their language isn’t any better as they can’t complete a sentence without screaming out the F word. They throw trash everywhere and a great many of them are wrecking the places they are
staying in. For the ones who do behave decently they pay the price for all the others. There is always talk about when June is finally over we will all settle down and the nice families will be arriving for July and August. What is wrong with this picture? Why do we encourage these groups of people to come here in the first place. Are we so desperate for the almighty dollar that we put up with anything? Does the town think that if all these high school seniors wouldn’t come here no one else would show up either? That is simply not the case. The kinds of people we want in town would start returning. Not long ago the issue of banning smoking was brought up, talked about and dropped. It’s a small step, but Ocean City should ban smoking on the beach. It’s a health hazard and we all know it. Other beach resorts have done it; surely it’s not out of the realm of possibilities for us to do it. Then there was the baggy pants issue that was discussed and nothing really came of that either. If another resort town was capable of passing that law, why not us? We talk about things like this and nothing ever gets done. Are we so afraid of offending these groups of people that we just put up with anything? I guess its alright to offend normal, decent, law-abiding citizens that don’t want to come here anyContinued on Page 44A

This is getting ridiculous. The Maryland Insurance Administration has launched a Twitter feed “to help consumers get important updates on insurance issues and decisions by the State’s insurance regulator.” I understand that this is the digital age, having witnessed it myself last week when I hit the car horn after a cyclist first cut me off as I rounded a turn and then proceeded to pedal slowly down the center of the lane so I couldn’t go around him. I pressed the horn and received a digital response. Personally, and not to be too harsh about it, I hope he is consumed by his own Spandex, is subsequently reduced to a small bouncy sphere and is rolled onto the basketball court where he will dribbled without end on a hot summer day. But back to the real digital age business. I understand the attraction of these social networking sites, feeds and whatnot, since I am a big fan of doing nothing, which
many of these sites give you the opportunity to do. And I can’t think of any better nothing to do than following the Maryland Insurance Administration’s Twitter feed, with all its thrills and spills. At the same time, however, this would allow me to prove wrong those people who might think I do nothing. “So,” someone might ask me at cocktail hour, “What have you been doing lately? What’s new?” “Wo-ho!” I would say. “Hold on for a sec while I check my state insurance administration Twitter so I can give you important updates on insurance decisions by the state’s insurance regulator.” Yep, that appeals to me, just sitting back in the recliner and checking my insurance updates. According to administration officials, however, more people are turning to social media outlets for information following natural disasters. But if that’s true, the problem then would become which outlet to turn to when. “Bob, the roof just got sucked off the house by a Category Five tornado and I’ve lashed Timmy to the shower head. What do you think – the governor’s Twitter, the weather station’s Twitter, the insurance administration’s Twitter, the state police Twitter, NOAA Twitter, FEMA Twitter, or Katy Perry?” “You say Timmy’s tethered to the plumbing? Then why don’t you just keep scrolling through all your feeds until you find one that you like. Don’t worry, tweet me when you land.”

READERS’ FORUM more and don’t. The T-shirts on the Boardwalk are so distinguishing and so in your face. The shop owners weren’t allowed to have them out front — only inside their stores. Well that’s not always the case as I have seen over and over again. Sure, Ocean City has changed over the years, times have changed, nothing ever stays the same and we make adjustments for a lot of things because we are not “back in the day. It’s a whole new world out there. But the changes in our town are not in our best interest and we need to start doing something about it instead of burying our heads in the sand.

Maryland Association of Counties’ conference comes to resort Annual event to focus on tourism and economic growth following recession NANCY POWELL Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) County elected officials join senators, delegates and other representatives of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City in the resort this week for the annual Maryland Association of Counties summer conference. The conference is held so government officials can learn about some of the most important issues facing local governments. This year’s theme for the conference, being held Aug. 14-17 at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, is “Bringing it All Back Home.” The conference focuses on tourism as an economic driver, ways to plan for and encourage economic growth and how cooperation among different levels of government and the private sector can result in bringing new businesses to the state.
Twenty-eight educational sessions, more than 220 exhibit booths, numerous meetings, government briefings and meal events were scheduled for the conference. Sessions include topics ranging from campaign finance laws, agricultural tourism, integrated stormwater and wastewater plans, healthcare reform and long-term budget planning to the creation of arts and entertainment districts, benefits of a zero-waste policy, bullying in schools and reentry programs to reduce recidivism and improve public safety. “As we gradually emerge from the Great Recession, we find ourselves operating under a ‘New Normal,’ where citizen expectations remain high despite diminished capabilities,” Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt, MACo’s current president, stated in a press release. “It is more important than ever that we recommit ourselves to taking advantage of every opportunity to collaborate, share resources and make the best use of all the good things we have. MACo’s Summer Conference, with our emphasis on Bringing it All Back Home, is the perfect place to start.”

Jeep Week returns to Ocean City, festivities begin Aug. 22 ‘Show-n-Shine,’ obstacle course and beach crawl among activities on tap CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer
PHOTO COURTESY OF OCEAN CITY JEEP WEEK
A Jeep takes on the obstacle course at last year’s Ocean City Jeep Week.
(Aug. 16, 2013) Ocean City’s Jeep Week returns next Thursday, Aug. 22, through Sunday, Aug. 25, bringing a Jeep crawl to the city’s shoreline, an obstacle course to the Pocomoke Fairgrounds, and a Jeep show to Berlin in a countywide celebration of all things Jeep. Close to 500 Jeep owners and aficionados will converge for the fourth annual Jeep Week activities, said organizer and promoter Larry “Sack” Sackadorf. “It’s kind of a crazy ride,” Sackadorf said. It’s “just a local, down-home thing.” Sackadorf launched Jeep Week in 2010, when a bike crash left him immobile for seven weeks. The Lynch family, owners of the Commander Hotel on 14th
Street, got word and contacted him about organizing a Jeep Week in town. With three-and-a-half weeks of planning and around 200 registered participants, “we were pretty well satisfied with the outcome,” Sackadorf said. In 2011, though, Hurricane Irene stomped out Jeep Week as the city was evacuated after the meet and greet party. “That took a little bit of fuel in our fire out, and the next year we came back with a vengeance,” Sackadorf said. Jeep Week now hosts 500-plus participants from as far afield as Canada and grows every year, he said. “We expect it to be a little bit bigger than last year, but nothing overwhelming,” Sackadorf said. He doesn’t expect traffic patterns to change in the city. What visitors can expect is a weekend of camaraderie with fellow Jeep fans. Jeep Week kicks off at 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, with a “Welcome to OC Party” with live music at Seacrets on 49th Street bayside. Look for Jeeps on See VARIETY on Page 3B
Water-powered jet bike can carry riders 30 feet above bay Business owners introduce Jetovator to those seeking thrill ride in Ocean City CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) Just in time to catch the end of the summer season, Odyssea Watersports near 51st Street on the bay has a new thrill ride to offer. The Jetovator — a water-powered jet bike that can carry riders 30 feet in the air over the water — opened for business Aug. 3. It has been carrying about four customers over the bay off the 40th Street convention center every day since. “They have a blast,” said trained Jetovator pilot and co-owner Sean Crosariol. “It’s just an unreal feeling when you’re up in the air.” The Jetovator learning curve is less than five minutes, “so people can have a
good time,” Crosariol said. Pilots quickly learn the ins and outs of manning the bike, from leaning forward for balance to using subtle hand movements to steer. Their ride starts at one of three locations, Odyssea Watersports, Action Watersports on 52nd Street bayside or OC Baysports on the bay near 23rd Street. Jetovator staff carry customers by Jet Ski to a spot about 300 yards offshore from the convention center, where the water is around chest-deep, and after brief instructions on how to fly the machine, the pilots are ready for takeoff. Either Crosariol or Tim Wood, both trained Jetovator pilots, control the waterpower driving the bike, meaning new drivers won’t go too high. The water feeds through the Jet Ski into a 50-foot hose attached to the Jetovator. Staff won’t take riders up to 30 feet on their first Jetovator ride, but slowly increase the water pressure as they see the driver improve and gain confidence. See TRAINED on Page 8B

Variety of activities scheduled during annual Jeep Week display in the taxi loop out front and Adams XTreme Motorsports. There will be door prizes, giveaways and a 50/50 raffle. The entire $10 cover will be donated to traumatic brain injury research at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore. On Friday morning, visitors can watch 250 Jeeps head south along the beach from 30th street to the inlet. Registered Jeeps leave at 8 a.m. sharp from the Jolly Roger Amusement Park parking lot on 30th Street. The beach crawl is one of the highlights of Jeep Week, Sackadorf said. “It means the world to them that they can get out and drive on Ocean City’s pristine beach,” he said. Tune in to 98.1 FM, the Rude Awakening Show with Bulldog at local Irie Radio, for live radio giveaways during the beach crawl. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the 45th Street Village will host a Jeeper Breakfast Buffet for $10 for those with a registration coupon. A scavenger hunt from 10-11 a.m. takes participants off Ocean City’s main strip and into the surrounding area. “I get tired of people coming to Ocean City and getting to know Ocean City just as a 10-mile strip. There’s so much more that Ocean City… and Worcester County have to offer,” Sackadorf said. Last year, the hunt took visitors to the Assawoman Bay State Wildlife Area, among other places off the beaten path, and this year’s event promises the same, he said. “We kind of jump around, which makes it a unique event,” Sackadorf said. At 1 p.m., Jeep Weekers meet at Oasis in Whaleyville for live music and another Jeep party. From 6-10 p.m., the annual Jeep Week Crab Feast takes place at Hooper’s Crab House in West Ocean City. The menu includes corn on the cob, shrimp, crab cake sandwiches, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, fries and of course, crabs. Adults pay $35 and children under 12 pay $15, with beer and soda included. Head to the 45th Street Taphouse afterward for late-night festivities. On Saturday, Barrett’s car dealership in Berlin hosts Show-n-Shine, a Jeep show with more than 360 pre-registered vehicles. Registration begins at 8 a.m., judging is from 9-11 a.m. and trophies in more than a dozen categories by CC Customs are awarded at 11:30 a.m. At noon, take a road trip to the obstacle course at the Pocomoke Fairgrounds, sponsored by the fairgrounds and the Eastern Shore Jeep Alliance. Lunch will be for sale inside the clubhouse. Attend Jeep Jam at CC Customs in Berlin from 1-8 p.m., where there will be an obstacle course, mud pit, live music, a swap meet and more. Registered Jeep Week participants get half off admission, $5, and the public pays full price, $10. At 9 p.m., head back to the 45th Street Continued from Page 1B

SRTs also ambassadors for Town of Ocean City KRISTIN JOSON Contributing Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) Lifeguards are often required to make rescues and the men and women of the Ocean City Beach Patrol are expertly trained to do just that. However, their job encompasses much more than the important skill of surf rescue. The guards are ambassadors for the Town of Ocean City. They work with and for the public to make Ocean City, an AllAmerica City, the best ocean vacation destination on the East Coast. Guards are not only expected to keep a vigilant eye over swimmers and patrons, but they are also called upon to perform many tasks that some people might think are not related to water safety at all. Guards act as educators to their patrons. Every day the guards call people on the beach and in the water over to their stand to inform them about the current, water, beach and weather conditions. These “safety talks” inform and educate the public on a daily basis about how to keep themselves and their families safe. Additionally, each guard writes important information about conditions and tides
on the sign that is on the back of every lifeguard stand. Guards are expected to maintain a safe and orderly beach by enforcing all laws and ordinances. Although watching the ocean is their primary responsibility, they are also responsible for everything that is taking place on their assigned beach, which extends between the guard’s stands on both sides and as far back as the Boardwalk or dune. To perform this component of the job, the guard will leave his or her stand and walk or jog through the crowd. During this “ordinance check,” they are looking for ordinance violations such as alcohol, dogs, glass containers, deep holes, improperly placed umbrellas and ball-playing too close to others, as well as other unsafe activities or conditions. With all that your SRTs have to do, please help them out by obeying all laws and ordinances. Guards often act as babysitters for children they find and for the parents who have misplaced a child. The Ocean City Beach Patrol has a 100 percent return rate for finding and reuniting lost individuals. The guards are trained to remind frantic parents and children who are separated of this fact, and to keep everyone as calm as possible until they are reunited.
ON THE WATER
Once a child is lost or missing, they or the parents should go immediately to a guard stand. The guard will obtain a description of the child and send it up and down the beach in semaphore (flag language). All the guards in the area will then be on the lookout, and other city departments will be notified by radio. The search is not over until the child is back in the parent’s arms. This situation occurs more than 2,000 times during an average season with lost and found individuals ranging from under one year old to over 90 with everyone returned. So that children feel safe going to a lifeguard if they are lost, we suggest that parents take their children over to the lifeguard each day and introduce them. The top two questions that people often ask lifeguards at least a dozen times every day require guards to be both maps and timepieces. Vacationers who are enjoying the luxury of not wearing a watch while on vacation as they stroll along the beach often ask, “What time is it?” and or “What street is this?” Guards are also a good source of knowledge about local restaurants and amusements. Because guards live here, beach visitors want to know what their lifeguard’s favorite places are to eat, play and shop. SRTs receive a briefing during our weekly staff meeting and are prepared with a listing of local events and activities See KEEPING on Page 7B

An Ocean City Tradition ENTERTAINMENT:
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty might upset some people, but you inevitably win more admirers for having the courage to tell the truth when others are more likely to scramble for cover. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who had lined up against it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your selfless efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superior’s attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A job-related incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way. Now you’ll be able to move forward with your plans without that problem holding you back. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity combined with a positive attitude should give you a considerable edge in finding a way to get around the negativity you’ve run into. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) That sudden streak of stubbornness could cause some problems. Try to be more open to helpful suggestions and more flexible in making needed changes. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Now that that special relationship appears to be well and truly restored, you can spend more time dealing with those long-needed workplace changes. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new opportunity sounds promising. But watch out for any conditions that might be attached. Before making a decision, ask that each one be explained in detail. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be distracted by promises of good times, yet you ultimately reach the goals you set for yourself.

Ocean City Today
Keeping all beach patrons safe OCBP lifeguards’ first priority that they are encouraged to share with the public. Lifeguards are storytellers. Every guard has at least one funny and informative story to share about the ocean. The stories they tell amuse the public while keeping them informed about the ocean environment. Some of the questions they receive are: “When is high-tide?” “What makes waves?” “What kind of shell is this?” “Are you sure those things jumping out of the water aren’t sharks?” “Is it going to rain?” “What kind of bait should I use to surf fish?” and finally, “When do you let the dolphins out?” Your guard is also expected to be an oceanographer, marine biologist, weatherman, fisherman and aviary expert just to mention a few. Now that you know how friendly, knowledgeable and hard working your lifeguard is, you probably want to go and ask them a lot of questions. If you approach a guard stand and ask a guard any question, do not be put off by the fact that they stand up and do not look you in the eye while they answer. All of the lifeguards are happy to answer any questions you may have, but they cannot and will not take their eyes off the swimmers or patrons at their beach, and I know you do not expect or want anything less. Captain’s Note: Even though our guards are friendly, knowledgeable and Continued from Page 4B
hard working, you should know that every member of the beach patrol is fully tested and certified before they ever have the privilege of guarding you or your loved ones. In fact, the bottom line that determines if I offer them a job is a positive response to the question “Would I trust them to guard someone in my family?” However, even with the most highly qualified and expertly trained lifeguards on the stands, we still need your help. If you are not a highly skilled swimmer with ocean experience, remain close to shore. It takes even the fastest runner and swimmer some time to get to you and the further out you are in trouble, the more time it takes us to help you. Never rely on an artificial flotation device in place of actual swimming ability. These devices just give swimmers a false sense of security, because in the surf that flotation could be lost and suddenly make the user an actively drowning victim. The ocean and beach are wonderful places to enjoy a summer day, just remember that the ocean is not the same as a neighborhood pool. Our first priority is to keep all beach patrons safe, but we cannot control the ocean. When hazards exist where people are swimming, it is our job to guide them out of harm’s way or when necessary to swim out and assist them back to safety. Our job is made easier when we have
their patience, understanding and assistance. One of the most frustrating situations for an SRT is when we are notified of potentially dangerous storms predicted

Adding compost, manures effective way to get soil in top condition FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Key to healthier produce is nutrient enriched earth DEBORAH LEE WALKER Contributing Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) What we eat today is far less nutritious than what we ate generations ago. According to an article in â€œScientific American,â€? a study led by Donald Davis of data compiled from 1950-1999 on 43 different fruits and vegetables found significant declines in in the amount of protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin and Vitamin C. Davis and his colleagues chalked up this declining content practices designed to improve traits (size, growth, rate, pest resistance) other than nutrition. The bottom line is that crops are growing bigger and more rapidly but their ability to manufacture nutrients is not keeping up with their development. The key to healthier produce is healthier soil. Nutrient depletion in soils adversely affects the quality and reduces crop yield, which subsequently poses a potential threat to global food security. Enriched soil is packed with microorganisms. These vital organisms break down the natural goodies for plant consumption that fortifies the soil. Every time
crops are harvested, nutrients are withdrawn from the earth. Because chemical fertilizers do not improve soil quality, most garden soils are depleted within a season or two. The most effective way to get the soil in prime condition is to add compost and manures. Eating fresh vegetables and fruits is still the best source for nutrients and beneficial phytochemicals. However, more intricate knowledge can allow us to make the most out of every bite. For example, broccoli begins to lose cancerfighting compounds within 24 hours of harvest. Buying it at a farmerâ€™s market would ensure fresher and more wholesome produce.
Contrary to popular belief, carrots are healthier if they are cooked as opposed to being consumed in its raw state. Carrots have a resistant cell wall that locks in the beta-carotene and makes it difficult for the body to absorb. Cooking helps to dissolve some of the cellulose. The most nourishing tomatoes in the supermarket are not in the produce section. Processed tomatoes, whether canned or cooked into a sauce, contain the highest amounts of lycopene. The summer is rapidly coming to an end, but grilled flat bread with herbs is simple, delicious, and works with meals year-round. Purchasing a jar of chimichurri sauce for $2.39 at Food Lion (international section) makes this dish very economical and saves a lot of time. Chimichuri sauce is a mixture of herbs, garlic and olive oil that is typically served
with steak. Enjoy. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 pound refrigerator dough, room temperature 1/2 jar Badia chimichurri sauce 1. Preheat oven according to instructions on pizza dough. 2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into two rectangles about a quarter-inch thick and cook accordingly. Allow to cool. 3. In the meantime, light the charcoal briquettes. When the coals are very hot, brush the flat bread with olive oil and grill each side for two minutes. Brush the top with chimichurri sauce and serve immediately. SECRET INGREDIENT: Hope There is a crack in everything, thatâ€™s how the light gets in. -Leonard Cohen

Hubba’s brings barbecue to 118th Street shopping center All in the family: Ocean City Square eatery owned, operated by Schroeders CLARA VAUGHN ■ Staff Writer
OCEAN CITY TODAY/CLARA VAUGHN
All family members of Hubba’s owners Sherri Schroeder, far left, and Al Schroeder, back right, pause for a picture last week at their new 118th Street restaurant location.
(Aug. 16, 2013) Hubba’s Pit Beef, BBQ & Seafood restaurant relocated from its 123rd street building to a cozy space on 118th Street, beside Paws and Claws in the Ocean City Square shopping center, three weeks ago. With dishes from its $4 chili cheese dog to seafood plates in the $20-range, and takeout and delivery available, the restaurant fosters a casual, homey dining experience, owner Al Schroeder said. “We’re trying to get that ‘make yourself at home’ atmosphere,” he said. With a staff of around 12 sons, daughters, in-laws and cousins, it’s not hard to feel at home in Hubba’s, server Shannon Foard said. She’s been on the restaurant’s staff for three years, since it first opened on 45th Street. “We wanted to just keep it family-run,” Foard said. “People get more involved with us and it makes them feel more comfortable.” Schroeder and his wife Sherri moved their restaurant business to Ocean City
from Baltimore four years ago. They relocated to 118th Street to put Hubba’s in a more “community oriented location,” Sherri Schroeder said. We “wanted to create a new atmosphere,” she said, and “improve visibility.” “So far, it’s been excellent” at the 118th Street location, Al Schroeder said, adding that many old regulars have returned to Hubba’s at its new spot as they come to town. “They come back for the food first and foremost,” he said. That includes old favorites like the Hubba’s pit beef — what Foard described as a perfect harmony of barbeque, horseradish and onion. New dishes include more traditional dinners, like the hot turkey platter, and seafood dinners and appetizers. The popular pork barbeque and paninis are still available, Al Schroeder said. The move also allowed Hubba’s to add beer and wine to its menu, but the restaurant is “still family-friendly first,” he said. Hubba’s has plans to expand, depending on how business goes, but the Schroeder’s expect to keep the business in the family. “I think it’s important for people to come in and see the same faces,” Sherri Schroeder said. “They feel comfortable.” Staff try to remember familiar faces and favorite orders.

Proposed FDA rules on indoor tanning could hurt businesses Owners say higher taxes, stricter rules could cause them to get rid of tanning CLARA VAUGHN Staff Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) Skin cancer; eye injury; discomfort, pain and tenderness of the skin; skin damage; transmission of infectious diseases; electrical shock and mechanical injury. These are all risks tied to indoor tanning, according to a new proposal by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that would ramp up controls on tanning beds and sunlamps. The proposed changes reclassify the ultraviolet lamps used for tanning from class I, general controls, to class II, special controls, based on comments from a 2010 reclassification panel and the FDA’s assessment of data on the health risks and benefits of using sunlamp products, FDA Press Officer Morgan Liscinsky said. “General controls alone are insufficient to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness” of tanning beds, Liscinsky said, “and there is sufficient information to establish special controls to provide such assurance.” As required by law, the FDA gave the public the opportunity to comment on the proposal. The comment period ended last Wednesday with 633 written and online statements by medical professionals, business owners and other stakeholders posted on the regulations.gov Web site, though some appear to be reposts made under multiple names. “Regulation of tanning beds is very much needed,” Lynn Tucker wrote in her comment. “The message that damage is done is not present in the tanning parlors. Please change this to a medical device that needs oversight.” “The proposed rule is a wonderful step forward in protecting the public from the well documented dangers of tanning,” William Daniel James wrote. “There is so little we can do to prevent cancer in general, but with melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma, the connection to ultraviolet light is straightforward.” The FDA will review the comments, but cannot predict how long that will take, Liscinsky said. “It will really depend upon the number of comments we receive and incorporate into a final order.” If the changes pass, sunlamp manufacturers will have to get a 510(k) clearance from the FDA — meaning they would need to register three-plus months before marketing their lamps, allowing the FDA to review lamps for “specific technical considerations, including software validation and performance testing, so that these devices are safe to operate,” Liscinsky said. Current classification of sunlamp products prevents the FDA from reviewing such features before they’re used on
the market, she said. Manufacturers would also have to give salon owners a warning sign to display reading, “Attention: This sunlamp product should not be used on persons under the age of 18 years,” Liscinsky said. The “proposed order is intended to help consumers better understand the risks of using these devices,” she said. Those risks include increased chances of developing skin cancer and eye injury from recurrent exposure to UV radiation; sunburn and permanent skin damage; transmission of diseases from tanning beds that were not properly cleaned; electric shock from manufacturing defects or repeated use; and other injuries from user error. However, many tanning businesses said the change could drive them out of the market. “If such measures were to pass I would most certainly be put out of business,” wrote Shanna Cassetta, owner of Tahiti Tan in Greensboro, N.C., in her comment. “(Re)classification would make the cost of the sunlamps skyrocket,” wrote Tim McCray of Tropic Tanz in Kingsport, Tenn., driving tanners outdoors to “exposure that is not in a controlled environment.” Locally, one operator said that with barriers like a higher tanning tax (currently 10 percent) and barring the under18 crowd from using tanning beds even with a parent’s signed consent, businesses might drop tanning from the services they offer. If passed, the proposal would also rename lamps used for tanning from ultraviolet lamps to sunlamps. The device classification regulation calls them “ultraviolet lamps for tanning,” but the electronic product performance standard calls them a “sunlamp product,” Liscinsky explained. The proposed renaming would provide “consistency and clarity,” she said. The definition includes tanning beds and booths and UV bulbs sold separately. Visit www.regulations.gov and search “FDA-2013-N-0461” to read more public comments on the proposed changes.

‘How long is too long to live with parents after college?’ REAL ESTATE REPORT
Survey poses question and examines options reported LAUREN BUNTING Contributing Writer (Aug. 16, 2013) In a recent survey conducted online by Harris Interactive on behalf of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, the question, “How long is too long to live with your parents after college?,” was examined with differing opinions being reported based on age and geography. The younger the respondents, the longer they felt it was okay for kids to stick around. Americans ages 55 and older feel it is acceptable for adults to live at home with their parents for up to three years after college. Millennials (ages 18-34) feel that any time over five years is too long for adults to live at home with their parents after college. Northeasterners are more accepting of having adult children live at home with their parents after college than those in
the South. Twentythree percent of Northeasterners believe that no amount of time is too long for adult children to live with their parents after college, compared to 17 percent of Southerners. And, adults in the West (15 percent) are more likely to indicate that an adult should never live at home with their parents after graduating from college than those adults who live in the Northeast (9 percent). The study also concluded that women are more tolerant of boomerang kids than men; nearly one in four parents believe it is okay for adult children to live at home as long as they want; and, most Americans (82 percent) agree that adult children who live at home with their parents should pay rent. However, four in five Americans believe it is okay for adult children to live with their parents if they are saving money to buy their own homes. - Lauren Bunting is a licensed REALTOR®with Bunting Realty, Inc. in Berlin
Maryland lottery sales take hit in FY ‘13 to end15-year streak ALEXANDER PYLES The Daily Record Newswire (Aug. 16, 2013) It is no coincidence that the end of the Maryland lottery’s decade-and-a-half string of record sales came in the same year Maryland casinos really cashed in. The Maryland State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency on Thursday announced lottery sales took a hit in fiscal 2013, ending a formidable streak of 15 straight years of record sales with a disappointing, but not unexpected 2.2 percent decrease in ticket sales.
The state’s first casino opened in Cecil County in 2010, but the June 2012 opening of Maryland Live Casino at Arundel Mills mall — more than three times the size of Hollywood Casino Perryville — disrupted the gambling ecosystem in a state that has debated for decades how and where wagering should take place. The four casinos in Maryland combined to generate $608.3 million in the fiscal year that ended in June, besting state projections by nearly $77 million.

AUGUST 16, 2013
Lottery record sales end in same year Maryland casinos cash in and lottery sales increased 27.6 percent year-over-year, to $829.5 million. But lottery officials say that came at the expense of the traditional offerings from the 40-year-old gambling agency, which sold $1.76 billion worth of tickets in fiscal 2013, $545.2 million of which went to state coffers — $200,000 less than the state budgeted. The lottery has hired a research firm, the Timonium-based Key Group, to help its staff determine why revenue fell and how to reverse the decrease before it becomes a trend. But lottery Director Stephen L. Martino said there’s little mystery surrounding what happened. The closer a lottery retailer was to the Cordish Cos.’ gambling emporium in Hanover, the greater that retailer’s losses in the last year. “Our operating hypothesis right now is that we’ve finally seen some erosion from the traditional lottery going to the casinos, particularly Maryland Live,” Martino said. “Maryland Live is clearly the game changer in these fiscal rev-

Gas prices Average retail gasoline prices in Maryland have fallen 5.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.57/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,167 gas outlets in Maryland. This compares with the national average that has fallen 5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58/g, according to gasoline price Web site GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Maryland during the past week, prices yesterday were 9.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 1.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
enue numbers.” Officials for months had predicted the dip and ran behind revenue estimates for most of the year before realizing there would be no 16th record-breaking year of sales. Martino said with casino revenue rising so dramatically with the legalization of table games such as blackjack and roulette and the opening of Maryland Live and Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Western Maryland, a one-year decrease in lottery revenue was not a “huge problem.” The state’s share of revenue from casinos goes to the Education Trust Fund, and lottery revenue goes to the General Fund, Martino said, making it difficult to trade off losses from one and gains to the other. He added the agency was “pleased with the numbers” but not “happy to see a decrease in sales.” “I think there needs to be some recognition … that there was probably going to be a decline in the traditional lottery,” he said. Richard Clinch, a research economist with Batelle Memorial Institute,
said there was likely some overlap among consumers who buy lottery tickets and slot machine gamblers, and there’s only so much discretionary income to go around. “The lottery was the only game in town, and when you’re the only game in town, you make money and lots of it,” Clinch said. “When you create other competition, like casino gaming, you get people who create budgets for these things … are going to cut back on one and use the other.” Similar lottery losses have occurred across the United States when casino gambling was introduced in a state that previously only allowed traditional lottery ticket sales. Maryland gambling officials have previously said that one way to boost ticket revenue would be to legalize a form of online gambling known by the industry as iLottery — essentially an online marketplace where gamblers buy and play traditional lottery games from their computers or smartphones. “That’s one of the issues that’s out there, but I think there’s a number of
things we need to look at,” Martino said. “We need to look at the inventory of games we have. What can we do to freshen up these games to make them exciting?” Clinch said some options could include new games and new or expanded loyalty programs, such as My Lottery Rewards, which the agency launched in June. At best, though, the lottery might need to get used to the idea that those record-breaking days are over. “Lotteries will not go extinct,” Clinch said. “I think the general consensus is when you pass casino gambling in a state, lottery growth slows. Will the lottery go away? No. Will the takes at best grow slower, at worst decline a little? Yes.” Lottery retailers earned $119.8 million in fiscal 2013, and gamblers won more than $1 billion buying lottery tickets. Monitor games, such as Keno and Racetrax, generated $493.6 million in sales. The most popular paper ticket games, instant-win scratch-offs, accounted for $485.8 million in sales.
