Hooked on Houses

I am truly hooked on homes, especially coastal ones. In addition to having a passion for renovating & decorating homes, I admittedly have a guilty pleasure: I cannot stop looking into people’s windows. I want to see more. What lies behind the door at the top of that winding staircase? What type of table sits below that glowing chandelier? Open concept floor plan? Kitchen Island? Is there a great sunset from that rooftop deck? Does any old beach house charm still exist inside? How did they infuse character into that new build? Is the interior décor as modern as the exterior?...

As we reach Memorial Day Weekend, the Fourth Ward drainage project is still not complete and roads that have been excavated to install a new storm drain system are still not paved. I can assure you that – aside from the neighbors who have put up with this major construction project for more than a year now – nobody is more frustrated with this failure to meet deadlines than I am. The city team is using every available tool to make sure the construction company meets its contractual obligation to finish this job quickly and properly. It’s been reported to me that workers on the job are telling residents that work will not resume until after Labor Day. That is not the case. The project will continue until the job is done and done right...

The Ocean City High School Key Club will host its second annual St. Baldrick’s Day event for the benefit of childhood cancer research on Friday May 25 during community lunch in the main gym. Male teachers will be shaving their heads (Dan Weaver and David Uhrich and possibly a surprise female will join them) to raise awareness for the need for research funding and to stand in solidarity with the children who do not have a choice as to whether or not they lose their hair...
