I don't need a sofa, but thought this was very thoughtful of you to do. I have seen some amazingRead Morepie ces of furniture on the streets of OC and after a night in the damp air, they are pretty much done for. I hope this still very useful item gets "adopted".

These fricken pinheads piss me off. They force you to put sod down...at your cost...on yourRead Morepropert y...no matter if you want grass or not. Then these pinheheads force you to install a sprinkler system...at your cost...on your property....no matter if you want it or not. The fricken pinheads at city hall should pay the water bill for those that didn't want grass. Here's what I'd do. After I get the U & O, I'd disconnect the sprinkler system, dig it up and sell it on Craigslist. Then I'd spray commercial grade grass/weed killer so that everything died and nothing can grow. I'm getting so sick and tired of the fricken Nanny State mentality that is trickling down from the State to Ocean City City Hall.

That's a little harsh Bob. I was really upset when I was told that I had to pay over 6000 for sodRead Moretr ees and a sprinkler. Now that it is done it looks good, and I am happy with it. Maybe next year when I get the water bills I will have a different opinion.

I agree with everything Bob said! The city makes you put in a sprinkler and trees...but theyRead Morecannot force you to water the grass or trees. I know several people who are letting their trees die on purpose. If Ocean City truly officials truly understood what "barrier island in a hurricane" means they would not be requiring trees. The trees will grow for years and then at some point in a future storm become the next debris hazard floating in the water and banging into everyones new foundation.

When I see money spent on things like this (especially since there are traffic lights very closeRead Moreby) it angers me to see how our tax dollars are spent. This set of lights compounds an already congested area.

I like the crossing and used it this Saturday, during the change-over period in fact. I noticedRead Moretha t it didn't disrupt the traffic flow in either direction, as the traffic was at standstill anyway backed up by the red light at Bay or West, respectively. I did find it confusing: the actuator button changes the lights for cars/vehicles but does not provide an indicator to bicyclist or pedestrians. The crossing location is in the appropriate spot, as trying to cross at West or Bay is hazardous resulting from vehicles who are eager to make a right turn on red onto 9th street.

Matt, I like it too. The idea is good. But when I have used it or tried using it the last twoRead Moreweek ends, riding my bike to the beach, it hasn't been on. It has been turned off. The traffic though does see me and has stopped without a light flashing red. The time it did work, in June when first in stalled, the indicator is the same as the bay ave and asbury ave indicator. It just seems odd that they would install this for bike safety but turn it off when we have the most traffic and bikes and pedestrians need the most help crossing 9th Street. Also, if we all did use and obey the laws of traffic lights 9th and Bay and Asbury would be fine places for crossing.

Btw, all the kids I know who are Employed by the city this summer to check beach tags are betweenRead More14 -16 y.o. To young to be expected to understand in a real way, the dangers of sun exposure. Dr. Fenichel, are all freckles evidence of sun damage? What about kids , red heads in particular, who are born with a face full? Are those kids more prone to skin cancer as adults? Just wondering for my own info not fight picking!
steve fenichel July 13, 2014 at 07:39 PM
Ms. Mermaid, you ask a very good question. " Always" is a tough word to use but in thisRead Morein stance I would say that freckles are always the result of sun exposure. Babies may be born with fair complexions but "never" with freckles. And ' yes' to your last question. The red haired, green eyed ( Celtic) person will be more prone to skin cancers then darker skinned people if sun protection efforts are not taken.

Thanks Doc :)
