Irene kicked off massive evacuation plan
Local emergency forces prepared for the worst
Staff Writer When it was all over, Hurricane Irene brought lots of heavy wind and rain, but caused minimal damage. While the hurricane caused major ﬂooding and stole some sand off the beaches on its way up the coast, it could have been a lot worse. “The northeaster we had in November was worse than the hurricane,” said Edward Bogart, who waited out the storm in his Palen Avenue home near the bay. “The water was about eight inches higher and the winds were stronger. It wasn’t bad at all, certainly not as bad as they predicted. We were saved when the wind shifted on Sunday morning.” continued on Page 8
BYOB ordinance will go to the voters
Council votes no, but lets the measure proceed
Staff Writer Flawed or not, the “Bring Your Own Bottle” ordinance will go to the voters this November. While voting no on the proposed ordinance at an August 25 City Council meeting, council members took the necessary steps to allow it to move forward. State law says restaurants may permit BYOB or not, but they cannot regulate it. Because the proposed ordinance regulates the quantity of alcohol patrons may tote with them, it is likely to be challenged in court if voters approve it. An ordinance proposed by Councilman Keith Hartzell kept the spirit of the proposed ordinance intact but eliminated the potentially problematic regulation. The amended version died on the table, as it would have required a second reading and would not have given members of the military enough time to send in their ballots. continued on page 24
Surﬁng up a storm
Dan Frankel gets some rides in Ocean City’s northend on Saturday morning. The rain had already begun, and the wind picked up, but he said the waves were still fun. His only complaint was that he could not ﬁnd anyone to surf with him. For more hurricane pictures see page 37.
