Fenwick Talks More About Ban On Vehicle Ads

FENWICK ISLAND – The Fenwick Island Town Council is continuing to mull a law that will restrict commercial vehicles being used for advertising purposes only despite warnings of enforcement challenges.

During last Friday’s Fenwick Island Town Council meeting, Councilman Bill Weistling returned to the discussion of commercial vehicles being used strictly for advertising, asking for updates from staff.

Last month, the council discussed regulating advertising on commercial vehicles at length. The subject was initially brought up by the Parking Committee, which forwarded the issue to the Charter and Ordinance Committee for feedback.

At that time, Chief of Police William Boyden explained the department’s challenge would be enforcement.

“If they have a vehicle parked, and once they know there is an ordinance they are going to start moving the vehicle around. I don’t want to mark the ordinance against one or two businesses,” he said. “Once we get an ordinance that is workable and we get it passed … the police department can go to those businesses that use vehicles as billboards and educate them. You will probably see 99.9 percent of the problem disappear.”

The council went back and forth over potential restrictions to include in an ordinance, such as sizes of advertising on vehicles, but felt that staff needed to conduct further research in how the state and neighboring municipalities handle the issue.

Boyden confirmed last month he would be in contact with the Town of Fenwick Island Solicitor and Delaware Attorney General’s Office for feedback and return to the council for further discussion.

This week Boyden stated neither the Chief Magistrate nor Attorney General’s Office would give an official opinion without a proposed or passed ordinance.

“Unofficially their opinion is it is going to be very hard ordinance to enforce. The police can enforce it but once it gets to the court level it will be very hard for the courts to enforce the ordinance, especially with parking lots and the movement of the vehicle,” he said.

Weistling asked the Parking Committee to take another look at it. Councilman Gardener Bunting responded the Parking Committee will continue to discuss the matter at its next meeting on Sept. 18 and return to the council with the results of that discussion at next month’s council meeting on Sept. 26.

Salisbury Council Fills Vacancy With Familiar Name

SALISBURY – A special City Council session was called on Wednesday afternoon to deliberate and announce candidate Jack Heath would fill the council vacancy left by former Councilwoman Terry Cohen.

Cohen, who was serving her second term, announced her unexpected resignation earlier this month due to major changes in her personal life and a recent tragedy.

Following Cohen’s announcement, the city immediately advertised the vacant position, and according to City Charter, the council had four weeks to choose a replacement.

“It was a very large turnout even for a major city, even for state election 12 candidates is almost unheard of,” Council President Jake Day said on Thursday morning. “We had a lot of interest, and I contribute that to the fact that City Council has been a positive place to work. We have all been getting along and have gotten a lot done in the past 18 months. We were also surprised about the quality of the candidates. We were all happy with the results.”

Day explained once all the applications were received the council went through a whirl wind of interviews with each candidate. The council decided to conduct a blind ballot process, or anonymous balloting, where each council member ranked each candidate by a point system and then combined all scores. After the first round, the top four candidates were chosen, and after further discussion the council conducted another round of rankings where Heath turned out as number one again.

“It was a combination of his experience, his interview and his community service,” Day said. “All three went incredibly well. It also helped that he, and at least one other candidate, had been candidates for public office before, so the public had the opportunity to hear from him and he has had the opportunity to become educated on the issues, so he certainly brought that to the table.”

According to Day, there were no challenges throughout the decision process. He had set aside time for closed session discussion in case of a conflict but no issues arose.

“It is just going to get better,” Day said of the council with the addition of Heath.

Heath, 68, has lived in Salisbury with his family since the 80’s. Besides being the former CEO for Lower Shore Enterprises, he volunteers his time as the president of the Fruitland Volunteer Fire Company, a member of the Rotary Club of Salisbury, a mentor in the Horizons program at The Salisbury School, serves on the Varsity Club Board of Directors, as well as the Mayor’s Foreclosure Taskforce.

When asked if he could fit time into his busy schedule to also serve on the City Council, Heath responded, “Oh yeah, absolutely. There is enough time in the day.”

Heath ran for council in the last election but didn’t come out on top that time around.

“I learned a lot, and I am thrilled to have been chosen out of the 12 candidates that submitted their names for this position,” he said. “When I first ran for office and lost, the council was stagnant and not much had been done for several years. I thought that I could make a difference. Now that the elections are over from a year and half ago, the council has made significant progress, and I thought it would be exciting to be a part of that change. I submitted my name, and given my business background and community activities I think I am in a good position to help them move plans forward.”

Heath found the council’s process to make a selection to be interesting as it followed a sophisticated matrix decision system.

“I think it was as impartial as you can get, and I was obviously pleased with the outcome because it was a good way in doing it by eliminating a lot of the prejudices,” he said.

In Heath’s opinion, his background in business will benefit the council as far as budgeting tax dollars.

“I think the other thing is my knowledge of the community, and my concern and interest in inclusivity and making sure that all people in town have a say,” he said. “The one thing that I would certainly like to see and it is part of the plan is to bring jobs, especially manufacturing jobs into the city. Jobs solve a tremendous amount of problems. When people are working, they are happier. The businesses get to pay taxes, and that takes the burden off of the individuals in the community. For us to achieve our goals, it is going to take investment by bringing businesses into the community that can share that investment. I am excited and I can’t wait to get going.”


Brown Box Theatre’s New Tour To Feature Macbeth

OCEAN CITY – Brown Box Theatre Project’s 4th Annual Free Shakespeare at the Beach tour will travel throughout Delmarva next month bringing an outdoor presentation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Macbeth to area schools and local communities free of charge.

Shakespeare’s spellbinding vision of ambition, treachery, mystery and magic will be conjured up in a three-week tour throughout a dozen locations on the Delmarva Peninsula.

In these free outdoor performances, theatre newcomers and Shakespeare devotees alike will witness the rise and fall of Macbeth, the renowned war hero who murders and usurps his rightful king after a fateful encounter with a trio of infernal witches.

Kyler Taustin, an Eastern Shore native, founded Brown Box Theatre Project in 2010 with the goal of enlivening the region’s theatre scene by bringing the performing arts to audiences who ordinarily lack access to live theatre.

“We are proud to continue our tradition of being a reliable source of arts entertainment and theatre education for Delmarva. Macbeth will take Brown Box to more communities than ever before, and promises to be a spellbinding experience for audiences from the by to the beach,” said Taustin.

Taustin, who is also directing the project, has assembled a talented cast of Brown Box favorites and new faces alike. Shakespeare at the Beach newcomers Alex Marz and Marge Dunn will play title characters Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, respectively. Brown Box veterans Kyle Cherry, Jeff Marcus, Laura Menzie, Johnny Quinones, Chelsea Schmidt, and Emma Undine Wiegand will return for this summer’s production. Also featured are Ben Heath, Joe Kidawski, Marc Pierre, and Gigi Watson.

Macbeth will appear throughout Delmarva from Friday, Sept. 5 through Sunday, Sept. 21. Brown Box Theatre Project is able to present Delmarva communities with free Shakespeare thanks to the generous support of Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore, Worcester County Arts Council, Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council, Mid-shore Community Foundation, Talbot County Arts Council, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts.

OC Redevelopment Project Includes Hotel, Townhomes

A proposed look at the new Misty Harbor Townhomes proposed for 25th Street. Rendering by Robert Heron, President of Atlantic Planning Development & Design, Inc.

OCEAN CITY – The modern design of a multiple-use project coming to the area of 25th Streett concerned the Planning and Zoning Commission, but its altered site plan was approved once it was explained it is the developer’s preference to keep the project unique.

The proposed site plan is of a hotel consisting of 92 rooms and 16 suites, along with a previously approved multi-family structure with 12, three-bedroom units that the developer requested to change to eight, three-bedroom townhomes instead.

“The Sept. 4, 2013 site plan approval had an 18-month life span and the applicant has determined they would like to convert from 12 multi-family condominium type units, which would be multi-level, to eight townhouse design where the units will be from the ground up,” Zoning Administrator Blaine Smith said.

Commission member Palmer Gillis expressed a lack of taste in the design of the townhouse units.

“What style of architecture is this? I am not sure if we are allowed to comment on taste but this is not really a homely looking building. It is really sad that we are going to allow this into that neighborhood,” he said.

Commission member Lauren Taylor agreed, stating the style reminded her of the old stack shack style, and pointed out cascading balconies cause problems.

Architect RobertHeron of Atlantic Planning, Development & Design, Inc. explained since the project last came before the commission the proposed hotel has become a Fairfield by Marriott and the townhouse unit will match the aesthetics of the hotel.

“I understand your comments … this is a more modern approach for Ocean City. As I said at the last Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, our client was upset when we produced what we normally do for Ocean City. He wanted something more in keeping with a modern approach and in keeping with the aesthetic of the hotel. In our opinion, we believe the uniqueness of the design of the townhomes and hotel is a major selling point for this project,” Heron said.

The commission voted unanimously to approve the amendment to the site plan approval.

In August 2013, during the initial site plan approval, the commission had concerns over traffic circulation but voted unanimously to grant preliminary site plan of the project approval and to have Atlantic Planning, Development & Design return with an altered site plan enhancing traffic circulation and relocation of parking.

A couple weeks later, the commission hesitantly approved an altered site plan for the mixed-use project stipulating if traffic issues occur it is the developer’s priority to resolve the issue.

The project will sit on four acres of land surrounding a water channel and is separated into two sites. Site A is on the easterly portion closest to Coastal Highway. At first, the site included two adjoining 4,600-square-foot restaurants on the northern portion next to 26th Street and a hotel consisting of 92 rooms and 16 suites on the southern portion next to 25th Street. Site B was the condominium building and is now the townhouse units.
During the first altered site plan review, Smith explained the revisions included a downsizing of the two restaurant spaces to 4,500 square feet, each totaling 9,000 square feet due to traffic pattern changes and relocations of parking to be in compliance with town code.

A pedestrian walkway running east/west between the restaurant and hotel has been changed to a traffic thru way creating circular traffic flow from the back to the front of the property.

The revisions addressed the commission’s concerns over exit/entrance points on the property by adding an additional two-way curb cut on 25th Street creating a straight thru way to 26th Street behind the hotel and the restaurant.

The Misty Harbor Motel once stood at the location but was demolished years ago. In the meantime, several projects have come before the commission to take its place but nothing has actually carried through. In the interim, the land has been used for special event parking.


Man Completed State Charity Trek In Ocean City Last Weekend

OCEAN CITY — One man’s 321-mile journey across the state of Maryland on foot and on a bicycle for the benefit of a children’s cancer charity ended as planned with a jubilant finale at the Inlet in Ocean City on Saturday, exceeding his fundraising expectations.

On Aug. 17, Baltimore area meteorologist Justin Berk began his hiking and biking journey across Maryland at the summit of the Wisp ski resort in Western Maryland and 321 miles, lots of blisters and seven long days later, he arrived at the Inlet in Ocean City on Saturday.

When Berk was 14, he nearly lost a leg to a staph infection and battled long odds to achieve athletic, academic and professional success.

In an effort to commemorate his own personal journey, and perhaps more importantly to raise funds to support young cancer patients and survivors in Maryland, Berk decided to undertake the trans-state trek across Maryland from one mountainous corner to the seashore in Ocean City.

He undertook the trek on behalf of the Cool Kids Campaign, a non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families by focusing on the academic, social and emotional needs brought on by a cancer diagnosis.

His symbolic journey captured significant attention on social media sites with 160,000 Facebook followers and 17,000 Twitter followers. His initial goal was to get a donation of $1 from every one of his Facebook followers, which would top out at a remarkable $160,000, but he later tempered the goal to $14,000, which represents the age at which he became ill and lost his leg. By the time he crossed the finish line in Ocean City on Saturday, he had raised over $21,000 for the Cool Kids Campaign.

Berk started the trip on Sunday, Aug. 17 in western Maryland. He started each day with a 27-mile hike, symbolic of the 27 years since he was ill, followed by a 14-mile bike ride, symbolizing his age when he was sick and almost lost his leg.

Each day along the journey, Berk, through his social media sites, told the story of one of the Cool Kids who either has cancer or is a cancer survivor. He was also met along the way by other cancer survivors or those suffering from various illnesses who joined him for a brief part of the journey.

Last Thursday, he crossed the Bay Bridge and onto the Eastern Shore. Berk completed the penultimate leg of the journey last Friday and arrived in Salisbury.

On Saturday, he completed the final 30 miles or so into Ocean City, where he was met with a warm reception and quickly soaked his ailing feet into the warm, recuperative Atlantic. He was welcomed to the Inlet by his two sons and other family.

Later, on his Facebook page, Berk wrote, “Everything came together despite many adjustments along the way. Hopefully the messages I tried to convey about the pursuit of a goal, finding a way around any obstacle, my story, rebuilding yourself, Cool Kids trying to just be kids, generosity from all walks of life, some humor, the numbers, and more.”



Feds Look To Allay Seismic Air Gun Testing Fears

OCEAN CITY — With the federal government inching closer to green-lighting the use of seismic air gun testing for natural gas and oil off the mid-Atlantic coast including Ocean City, the agency that would regulate the activity last week issued a statement attempting to clear up some of the myths associated with the potential dangers.

With a renewed interest in tapping potential oil and gas reserves off the mid-Atlantic coast, the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is moving forward with  a proposal to allow private sector companies to utilize potentially harmful seismic air gun testing to determine what lies beneath the ocean floor. Seismic air guns essentially shoot a blast of sound into the ocean floor to determine the locations and scopes of potential oil and gas reserves off the coast.

In late July, BOEM released its final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for seismic air gun testing in the mid-Atlantic, opining the potential rewards outweigh any possible impact to marine life. While there are still several hurdles to clear before seismic air guns are blasted into the ocean floor off the coast of Ocean City and throughout the mid-Atlantic, the PEIS represents the federal government’s intention to move forward with the proposal despite an outcry of opposition from nearly all corners.

The environmental advocacy group Oceana has led the charge against seismic air gun testing from the beginning. When the PEIS was released in late July, a delegation of U.S. Senators and members of Congress from Maryland joined the fray with a strongly worded letter to President Obama urging him to put the brakes on the proposal.

Last week, BOEM’s Chief Environmental Officer William Brown released a statement attempting to clear up some of the misconceptions about seismic air gun testing and allay the fears of potential harm to marine life.

“It has been just over a month since BOEM released the PEIS and there’s been a lot of attention on both sides of this complex issue,” he said. “I wanted to take some time to clear up a few misperceptions about the bureau’s decision and what it means. As a scientist who has spent a good part of my career working in non-governmental organizations and in industry, I understand and appreciate advocacy. At the same time, I believe that everyone benefits by getting the facts right.”

Brown said the BOEM is legally obligated to do due diligence on any proposal that could impact marine life and has a solid environmental track record.

“BOEM has the legal responsibility to protect marine species and ecosystems from harm by the energy exploration and development which we regulate, and that is a responsibility which I embrace without reservation,” he said. “Since 1998, BOEM has partnered with academia and other experts to invest more than $50 million on protected species and noise-related research. The bureau has provided critical studies on marine mammals, such as researching seismic survey impacts on sperm whales and BOEM has conducted many stakeholder workshops to discuss and identify information needs on acoustic impacts in the ocean.”

In his report, Brown addresses piecemeal many of the concerns raised by advocacy groups. For example, opponents have asserted air guns used in seismic surveys will kill dolphins, whales and sea turtles and ruin coastal communities.

“To date, there has been no documented scientific evidence or noise from air guns used in geological and geophysical seismic activities adversely affecting marine animal populations or coastal communities,” he said. “This technology has been used for more than 30 years around the world. It is still used in U.S. waters off the Gulf of Mexico with no known detrimental impact to marine animal populations or to commercial fishing.”

However, Brown did not entirely dismiss the potential for harm to marine life and said that is why BOEM is so diligent about advanced research and testing.

“While there is no documented case of a marine mammal or sea turtle being killed by the sound from an air gun, it is possible that at some point where an air gun has been used, an animal could have been injured by getting too close,” he said. “Make no mistake, air guns are powerful and protections need to be in place to prevent harm. That is why mitigation measures, like required distance between surveys and marine mammals and time and area closures for certain species are so critical.”

Detractors have opined that the air guns are 100,000 times louder than a jet and will deafen marine life, but Brown attempted to dismiss that notion in his report.

“An air gun is loud, although it is not 100,000 times louder than a jet,” he said. “Measured comparably in decibels an air gun is about as loud as one jet taking off. We do not know what a whale, dolphin or turtle actually experiences when it hears an air gun. Some whales appear to move away from the surveys, indicating they probably don’t like the noise, but bottlenose dolphins have often been observed swimming toward surveying vessels and ride bow waves along the vessels.”

Apple Adds Another Sherr

SALISBURY – Apple Discount Drugs owner Jeff Sherr has been joined at the pharmacy by his son, Zack Sherr.

Zack Sherr may be the most recent addition to the pharmacy team at Apple Discount Drugs but this is certainly not the first time he has worked for the family business.

“I started emptying trash cans and filling the soda machines when I was 14,” said Zack Sherr. “I learned at a young age that there really is no such thing as

Zack Sherr

Zack Sherr

a free ride – you have to work for what you want. My father taught me that if you want something bad enough you will push yourself to the limit. Even if it is intimidating, you just have to give it your best and never give up.”

Zack Sherr recently put those words of wisdom to work. He graduated in May with a Doctor of Pharmacy from UMES School of Pharmacy. Prior to attending UMES, Sherr majored in Business Information Technology for two years at Virginia Tech and then transferred to Salisbury University where he majored in Biology.

During his time at UMES School of Pharmacy, Sherr completed two years of year-round course work and a third year of advanced pharmacy practice experience, similar to eight, five-week internships. He put in time at the Apple Discount Drugs pharmacy counter, Apple Home Infusion, Ambulatory Care, Advanced Community, Atlantic General Hospital, PRMC Acute Care, Tawes Nursing Home and two sessions at UMES where he did leadership rotations and research projects on compounding practices.

“I pushed myself harder in pharmacy school than I ever have before my entire life,” said Sherr. “From community to hospital to nursing home pharmacy and academia, I had the opportunity to experience it all and decide what I liked best.”

Jeff Sherr added, “As parents we can offer guidance and support, but there comes a time when we have to let go. It has been quite an honor to watch Zack spread his wings, work hard, push himself and find his way. His mother and I couldn’t be happier that ‘his way’ brought him back home to work for the family business. The entire staff has watched Zack grow up and is now welcoming him with open arms to the Apple team.”

For his part, Zack Sherr said he is excited about the new opportunity.

“I am not going anywhere anytime soon. This is my home and Apple is the family business. I look forward to growing the company with my father. I want to continue to be innovative. Change is inevitable. You have to be able to adapt to move on,” Zack Sherr said.


Hospital To Open New Unit

SALISBURY — Peninsula Regional Medical Center will open a Clinical Decision Unit in September to serve patients who require more extensive observation than in the Emergency Department, but who may not require an inpatient stay.

Patients will remain on the Clinical Decision Unit in an outpatient status for an observation period of 20 hours or less, during which they will receive additional evaluation, and diagnostic tests if needed, to determine whether they are well enough to be discharged, or require inpatient admission. This allows patients to quickly receive the most appropriate care.

Congestive heart failure, chest pain, pneumonia and asthma are some of the common conditions that may be addressed in the Clinical Decision Unit. A few examples of patients most likely to benefit are asthma patients who need a few more hours of treatment and observation, or chest pain patients who need a little more labwork and a stress test to see if they are well enough to be discharged.

The unit is located in a pleasant, recently renovated area of Peninsula Regional Medical Center, and will allow patients a much more comfortable atmosphere for their observation stay. Private rooms are available. In addition, guests of the Clinical Decision Unit will benefit from enhanced quality of care and safety and a reduced length of stay.

Many hospitals across the nation are establishing units dedicated to observation. One important reason is to help reduce cost and confusion caused by Medicare’s rules regarding outpatient stays. While most people who go to the emergency room and end up staying in the hospital assume that they’re inpatients, that is not necessarily the case. Medicare uses the “two-midnight rule,” meaning that most patient stays shorter than 48 hours are considered outpatient stays. This affects how the visits are paid for ─ so a quicker, clearer path to either discharge or inpatient admission will help to reduce healthcare costs.

“The opening of our Clinical Decision Unit shows our continued support of providing exceptional care to our community. This unit cares for the patient’s well-being both physically and financially,” said Dr. Alon Davis, Medical Director of the new unit.
