This week we heard some debate over roads, drainage and flooding, looked at some sand sculptures and saw a hermit crab beauty contest.
Here are some highlights from the past week's news:
On Monday, we reported that the new Route 52 causeway is taking its toll on gulls, posted a police activity report, announced that National Night Out is set for Aug. 7, saw Fourth Ward residents invited to a meeting with Councilman Pete Guinosso and posted a letter from a resident about Councilman Keith Hartzell's road plan.
On Tuesday, we announced the Miss Crustacean hermit crab beauty pageant, met the art professor whose work will be on display at the Ocean City Arts Center in August and reported that Stenton Place Beach has reopened after a sewage scare.
On Wednesday, we discussed two Olympic hopefuls, heard from Hartzell about citywide flood mitigation, saw some photos from a sand-sculpting contest in Ocean City and reported that two were charged with drug offenses after a traffic stop.
On Friday, we reported that gas prices will likely rise this month, posted a beach guide, saw a lawsuit over a little league pitch that went astray and posted a letter arguing that no rainforest wood should be used on the Boardwalk.
On Saturday, we asked you to "like" us on Facebook, announced that live cameras will provide a real-time look at crowds, weather and waves at locations around the island, and posted a historical image of the Music Pier.
