Ocean City’s summer tradition of conducting flag-raising ceremonies at the Water Park across from the Music Pier is always special.
Thursday morning’s event took on added significance as the city paid tribute to Marine Corps veteran Doie Barnes, on her 99th birthday.
“It was a very nice thing to do for a wonderful person,” said her friend and fellow World War II veteran Joe Caserta, 98. “She appreciated it a great deal.”
Barnes, of Ocean City, was one of the first women to join the Corps after the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve was established in 1942.

If life’s a beach, as the saying goes, it helps to have one.
On Sunday at Park Place beach, folks were soaking up the sun, sand and surf. Especially the sand.
Just last week, what passed for the same beach amounted to a narrow strip of sand ranging between 10 and 50 yards wide.
At high tide, the water’s edge came just feet from the dunes.
That all changed last week when the city’s beach replenishment project pumped in enough sand to increase the width to approximately 150 yards.
