(April 12, 2013) The Walk MS Ocean City fundraiser is one of 11 events scheduled this month in Maryland, where more than 6,000 people are living with Multiple Sclerosis, a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system.
In 2012, approximately 600 people participated in the Ocean City walk to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the group raised nearly $80,000 to help fund the fight against the disease.
According to Melissa Ward, Frederick community development manager for the National MS Society, Maryland Chapter, the 2013 goal is to generate $85,000…
(March 29, 2013) Resort residents and visitors searching for a part-time, summer/seasonal job or full-time, year-round employment will find a number of options to choose from on Saturday, all in one location, during the 28th annual Ocean City Job Fair.

(Feb. 22, 2013) For the first time, the Susan G. Komen Foundation in 2012 brought its Race for the Cure to Ocean City. The inaugural event, which included a 5k timed competitive run, a 5k recreational run/walk and 1-mile fun walk on the resort’s Boardwalk, drew 3,662 registered participants.
Unfortunately, unfavorable weather conditions on April 22 kept many participants at bay, but the Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure still raised a whopping $349,150 by way of registration fees, donations and cash sponsorships.
Organizers initially hoped to generate $241,000.
Reconfiguring Ocean City’s system of rotating surfing beaches could be like trying to shuffle cars on a train while it’s still moving. It’s going to be tricky.
Nevertheless, reexamining the long-established surfing beach policy and trying to make it more convenient for surfers and everyone else is what the City Council on Monday pledged to do with a committee to be assembled by the mayor.
The problem is more a matter of numbers than it is who deserves what. In a figurative sense, the question is how do you make 1,000 people happier without making 10,000 others mad, or at least feeling inconvenienced?…
Not a planned one, but an expansion nonetheless. Hurricane Sandy left more than a few stories in her wake: a new beach south of the inlet jetty

Ocean City’s newest attraction might be short-lived. A beach south of the jetty at the inlet is garnering attention from people who like the novelty, but Mother Nature could reverse her hand and erode it.
“I’m taking a picture to show everybody back home,” said Charles Perkins of Glen Burnie, after he used his camera’s timer to take a photo of himself standing on the new beach Monday morning. “It’s the first time…
Hurricane Sandy approaches the East Coast and European computer models predict that it will hit just south of Ocean City, MD. The northern side of the storm tends to develop more flooding and the winds will push water out of the bays and tributaries on the southern side of the storm. The storm won’t hit until Monday, but in the European model, the winds will create flooding to the north of the storm beginning on Sunday. The American model has it moving more slowly and hitting farther north but hanging over the tri-state area around NY and New England through Thursday. As we hear more,…
