Photo by Ron Fisher.County autonomy threatenedBy Chip BertinoWorcester County planning and zoning authorityand responsibility could be subjugated bythe State of Maryland if a recently released draftplan by the Maryland Department of Planning(MDP) is implemented by Governor MartinO’Malley (D) according to Edward Tudor, directorof the Worcester County Review and Permittingdepartment. He brought his concerns to countycommissioners during their June 21 meeting. Thecounty commissioners are not happy with thestate’s plan.According to Richard Hall, Maryland Secretaryof Planning, PlanMaryland provides a framework,process and actions for furthering SmartGrowth and for implementing the 12 Planning Visionsthat Gov. O’Malley signed into law in theSmart, Green & Growing Legislation of 2009.The plan, according to Mr. Tudor, would havea deleterious effect on Worcester County and hecounseled commissioners to voice their concern toMDP prior to the September 1 close of public commentsset by the state.In a 29-page review of the plan by Mr. Tudorand his staff, PlanMaryland, as written, could extinguishland use and zoning autonomy for allMaryland counties and other local jurisdictions.Additionally, because Worcester County is predominantlyagricultural and a location for secondhomeowners, the county could wind up very muchvanquished of self rule.According to Mr. Tudor, some of the plan’s provisionscould be interpreted as discriminatory andunconstitutional. Language in one section referringto land use states that housing be limited tothat which supports people engaged in resourcebasedbusinesses, tourism and rural recreation.Mr. Tudor points out that this unenforceable andcould not be monitored.Another provision of the plan is contrary to thecounty’s Comprehensive Plan indicating that thevillage of Showell is an area for future growth.The state’s plan totally disregards plans and proceduresaccepted by the county without recourse.The plan also puts considerable emphasis onlimiting the number of lots that can be served bya septic system. This statewide objective wouldaffect adversely Worcester County without givingdue consideration to the constraints local jurispleasesee county on page 9Yes I can -- Ilene Eslin, age 8, of Ocean Pines, is showingher grandfather Jeff Teal of Ocean Pines how she canfish.

That first houseFor the past several months I havebeen working, sometimes intensely,on a backyard project. The processhas been rewarding because at theend of the day I can see the fruits ofmy labor. And, my wife has beenIt’s All About. . .By Chip Bertinochipbertino@delmarvacourier.comfairly impressed with the results evenif from time to time I have heard fromher, “That’s the way you’re going to dothat?” or “Why didn’t you …?” Youjust have to love her. She means well.Just before we got married we purchasedwhat was for all intents andpurposes a small cottage in southernNew Jersey a half block from the bay.Some may have mistaken it for an oldfishing shack but to us it was a cottage.That’s a much more romanticimage, don’t you think? It was small,quite small at about just under 600square feet. In addition to beingsmall, it needed work, a lot of work.One of the first things we realizedas new homeowners was it can be expensiveto have contractors come outto do work, especially when you havelittle to no money. So, we rolled upour sleeves and did a lot of work ourselves.The previous owners had put upwallpaper in the living room. My wifeharbors an intense dislike for wallpaper.I don’t know why. Maybe it’ssomething from her childhood. Wehadn’t been in the house a week andshe was already making plans thatthe wallpaper was going to go. Thatwas one of our first projects. It wasduring this work on that tiny livingroom that I learned a very importantfact about our relationship: I’m laborand my wife is management. Thingshaven’t changed all that much overthe years. The compensation has remainedabout the same but the projectshave gotten more varied andbigger.We learned a lot about the “joys” ofhomeownership while living in thatold house. We refinished the kitchencabinets (we couldn’t afford new ones),we laid a new floor in the porch (aroom we euphemistically called the solarium/conservatory/librarybecause ithad large windows, an old piano and abook in it), we installed new rugs andredid the bathroom.The bathroom was like nothing I’dever seen before or since. It seemed tobe an afterthought when the housewas constructed. Youwalked through a narrowdoor just off thekitchen to get in. Youhad to sidestep the sinkhanging on the wall toget to the commode. Butif you sidestepped toomuch you’d fall into thetub. A telephone booth is larger thanthat old bathroom. You could, withoutany exaggeration, take a shower,brush your teeth at the sink while sittingon the commode. I kid you not.And to make things even more interesting,the access to the attic was inthe ceiling of the tiny closet (whichhoused the hot water heater) oppositethe sink. I had to contort more than apretzel to squeeze through the openingto get or put back the Christmasdecorations.The house boasted one and a halfbedrooms. Yes, that’s right, a half abedroom. It was part laundry roomwith the washer and dryer against thewall. I know that sounds odd but youhave to allow for such charm when livingin a cottage. When our daughterwas born the room became the nursery.My little girl was often lulled tosleep by the hum of the rinse cycle.Oh, and as if the room could not getany stranger, the back door was locatedin there.We lived in the house just undertwo years. The limits of charm extendonly so far. I remember at the timewanting so much to get out of thathouse and into something larger. Weeventually did. But looking back, thatold house (cottage/shack) had a personality.It was the home that mywife and I entered the night of ourwedding. In case you’re wondering Iwas too exhausted to carry her overthreshold; she carried me. It waswhere we brought home our firstchild. We enjoyed many meals in thetiny kitchen with family and friends.And it was where I learned that ahouse doesn’t have to be thousands ofsquare feet in size to be a home. I alsolearned that I prefer a house whereflushing the toilet doesn’t cause thecable to go out.June 29, 2011 The Courier Page 5

Page 6 The Courier June 29, 2011Thompson gives GM report to boardBy Chip BertinoBob Thompson gave his generalmanager’s report to the OceanPines Association (OPA) Board ofDirectors during their meeting lastWednesday.OPA recently received “substantialpayments” from three propertyowners in arrears in membershipdues and who faced foreclosure.OPA received almost $7,500 in paymentsand has worked out paymentplans to bring the accountscurrent.Since the last board meetingwhen the directors voted to makeCarrollton Lane in Colonial Villageone way, Mr. Thompson met withthe county engineer to discusswhat needs to be done to make thishappen. Also, survey lines havebeen identified to mark the road’soriginal boundary lines. BoardPresident Tom Terry commentedthat the board’s decision was notits “finest moment” and hoped acompromise on the matter could beworked out. Fellow Board MemberRay Unger called the decision lastmonth, “foolish.” It is expected theboard will revisit the matter attheir July meeting.During the month of May, 3,958people used the pool at the SportsCore. This was down just slightlyfrom April. Mr. Thompson saidthat at next month’s meeting, hewill have usage figures for each ofthe community’s five pools, most ofwhich opened at the end May.The Public Service Commissionhas granted a preliminary approvalfor natural gas to bebrought to the community pendinga 20 day public comment period.The next step in the process will beto work through the approvalprocess and get engineering approvalto run lines down Route 113.Paperwork for a $195,000 granthas been filed to give the community’spolice force access to thedatabase shared by the county,Ocean City and Snow Hill. Thiswill enable Ocean Pines police officersto make reports from their vehicles,provide them MobileGraphical Mapping capability andgive them quicker access to criminalinformation.The Public Works Departmentcompleted upgrades at South Gateincluding new fencing and a wideningof Ocean Parkway for saferpedestrian access. The departmentalso installed new sinks andhandrails at the Beach Club andnew cabinets at the Yacht Club.To date 209 discounted RegalMovie Theater tickets have beensold. Individuals who purchasetheir movie tickets through the Associationget a $3 discount perticket. Additionally, 243 discountedamusement park ticketshave been sold. The Association isnow offering discounted passes tofindingsfrom page 3sidered a top priority. Mr. Thompsonexplained that the Yacht Clubwas in fact a priority and that he believedfirmly that work on the CountryClub was better done first so thatwhen the Yacht Club is closed forrenovations, repair or rebuilding, theAssociation could still provide foodand beverage services to the community.Director Pete Gomsak underscoredMr. Thompson’s conclusionsaying that initially he believed theYacht Club should come first butthat upon deliberation, Mr. Thompson’sconclusions were sound. Mr.Gomsak said that making theCounty Club a priority is a businessdecision to allow an alternativewhile the Yacht Club is renovated orrebuilt.Mr. Thompson further explainedthat he had been tasked by the boardto develop a plan. He had done thatand if the board disagreed with hisfindings, he would like guidance onhow to proceed because he wanted toMaking Cosmetic Dentistry a Family AffairDoes your smile reflect the REAL you?Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires.Jolly Roger in Ocean City.

Photo by Ron FisherDoes this look familiar?Ocean City/Berlin Chapter of Optimist Internationalthe program is administeredand was started by the local Anglers Club.The day kicked off at 9 a.m. with manyvolunteers from the Anglers Club havingpreviously set up displays to demonstrateknot tying, fish identification, lures, hooksand hook removal, baits as well as anglingsafety. There was also a special areawhere casting instructions were given tokids and their family members.Many of the children took advantageof the educational areas. They were intentas they learned the skills of fishing. Favoriteareas seemed to be knot tying, fishidentification, lures, bait identification andcasting. After receiving instructions theyset out to use their new fishing skills andto find a favorite area to fish.Approximately 93 kids (61 boys, 32girls) registered for the event according toWalt Boge of the Anglers Club. Kids arrivedfrom all of our local communities aswell as Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky.As I walked around the lake takingphotographs I found most of the kidsdoing the fishing themselves with familymembers and Anglers Club members offeringa few pointers. Not many fish werecaught but the kids were really excitedabout identifying what they caught.Bobby Johns age 6 of Ocean Pines said“my granddad bring me every year and wehave a good time.” One of the most interestingwas Mikey Fajota age 9 of FortCampbell, Kentucky who was using a rodthat launched his bobber, hook and bait approximately50 ft. out into the lake. It wasspring loaded and he knew how to make itwork. Mikey was with family from thearea. His dad is deployed to Afghanistan.Finally the Worcester County Sheriff’sDepartment K-9 Division Cpls. Edgar andRamey had their dogs do a demonstrationfor the kids as to how the dogs locateddrugs.It was truly a fun day for all involvedan there is nothing greater than the smileon a kids face when fishing.
