5 stories about the tragic close of summer

Last week we began coming to grips with the fact that summer most likely will end. It’s great to hold out hope, and we still have a ton of gorgeous days left, but the clock surely is ticking. Our top posts from the week involve how the changing season is going to affect us here at the beac over the coming weeks.

Lifeguards still are on duty

Lifeguards will be on duty on limited beaches for the remainder of the season, in case you didn’t know. Last week our friends at Maryland Life shared this post from the Ocean City Beach Patrol talking about the changes in coverage.

Fly invasion

There was something of a fly crisis last week as black flies sailed to the Boardwalk on the back of the west wind. Dozens of readers reached out to OceanCity.com for an explanation and we ran down an answer from DNR that we incorporated into what became our story of the week.

Just a few days later, the fly epidemic passed as quickly as it had arisen.

All the beer that’s fit to drink

We helped host the 8th Annual Brews on the Beach this weekend, which was quite a success, but it puts us in the mind of the other upcoming beer festivals we’re participating in, including the Bike Week Beer Garden in Seaford, Del. featuring all the best breweries on the Peninsula.

News of note

Last week OceanCity.com was recognized by the county commissioners for its participation in providing local job opportunities for high school and college students looking to enter the tech (in our case, media too) business. Small business have the opportunity to show students that there are worthwhile ways to stay local rather than searching for jobs across the bridge after high school and college.

In more business tech news…

Our partner site WallopsIsland.org shared this post about other astounding opportunities provided locally to students.
