The Maryland and Delaware Atlantic Ocean beach resorts got a bit of good news to kick off the summer season this past week. The latest survey by the National Resources Defense Council rates both states as having some of the cleanest beach water in the country. Based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency water quality standards for swimmer safety (and the prevalence of disease-causing bacteria or viruses), Maryland had the fourth safest coastal beaches in the country. Delaware was the best overall.

What's next, polar bears in Ocean City? Harp seals, members of an Arctic species that breed on floating ice in Canada, have been swimming ashore in relatively balmy Maryland and elsewhere along the Atlantic coast. Six of the famously furry mammals have been sighted on Maryland beaches from Ocean City to the Assateague National Seashore over the past 18 months, according to a rescue squad led by the National Aquarium in Baltimore. A polar invasion might be mounting. Federal researchers say 297 harp seals were reported on beaches from Virginia to Maine last year, almost double the 152 reported in 1995.

The NAACP requested a federal injunction yesterday on behalf of two Baltimore police officers and nine other plaintiffs to stop what it charges is discrimination by Myrtle Beach against participants in the South Carolina city's Memorial Day weekend Black Bike Week. The lawsuit from the Baltimore-based National Association for the Advancement of Colored People alleges that Myrtle Beach is discriminatory in its plan to limit Memorial Day weekend traffic on the beach's main drag - Ocean Boulevard - to one-way, instead of two, making it the only weekend of the year to do so. The action was filed in U.S. District Court in Charleston, S.C. "African-American motorcyclists and tourists, they deserve the same rights accorded to all citizens," said Angela Ciccolo, NAACP general counsel.

ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. -- The cars lined up in single file yesterday along beachfront Highway 58, brake lights glowing through initial rain squalls, as Hurricane Bob bore down on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.The storm, boasting 100 mph winds and broad bands of rain, gained speed and intensity from the warm ocean and respect from wary residents and visitors as it arrived. Police ordered a mandatory evacuation of local beaches. Nearly everyone complied.Throughout the weekend, Bob seemed to draw an unrelenting bead on the Atlantic Beach area, a popular North Carolina vacation spot called "The Crystal Coast."

A 1928 Western Maryland Railway brochure -- featuring a woman in a white cotton dress and straw hat standing on a mountain path next to a gentleman smartly dressed in white duck pants, necktie and waving a straw boater -- must have been a temptation. It was probably enough of one to cause heat-weary Baltimoreans who glimpsed the timetable in the waiting room of the railroad's Hillen Station to pack their portmanteaus and buy tickets on the next train out of town. It was railroad president John Mifflin Hood who first envisioned the passenger potential of building and serving resorts in the mountains of Western Maryland after the railroad opened the famed Mountain House near Pen-Mar in 1883.
