An Anne Arundel County judge pulled the plug Thursday on the gambling operation at a Chesapeake Beach bar, but said the Crooked I Sports Bar & Grill can try to restore its mini-casino when the case goes to trial. Judge Philip T. Caroom denied the Crooked I's request for a preliminary injunction that would have allowed its 105 slots-like machines to continue operating until its case is tried. Caroom said he will file an opinion Friday. The business is challenging a new state law that would end its lucrative gambling business.

CHESAPEAKE BEACH -- Beer flows freely for charter skippers and mates spending evenings swapping yarns on the benches outside the Rod 'n Reel Tackle Shop. But for some charter crews, a lot is not enough.At Ocean City, tradition rules that captain, mate and angler who get a blue marlin go into the brine at the docks. Here, the captain who guides his party to a rock of 36 inches buys a six-pack of chilled foam.And seeing that the Chesapeake Beach fleet seems to lead the bay in the number of legal rock taken as the 17-day season nears the halfway point, it's congratulatory party time highlighted by a lot of swapping of fish tales.

When Dawn Delahanty and her husband decided to make the move from Waldorf, which they found to be a bit too crowded, their trek took them from Gaithersburg to St. Mary's County. Then, in the summer of 2000 after a two-year search, they found a three-bedroom split-foyer on 2.5 acres in Calvert County's quaint Chesapeake Beach. The Delahantys knew they had found their new home even before they went inside. "When we pulled up to the house, all of the neighbors came out and introduced themselves," she said.

What would become of Wesley Stinnett's restaurant? In the weeks after Tropical Storm Isabel swept through, the question lingered in the salty air over Chesapeake Beach. Everyone, it seemed, had a theory about the fate of the cozy, 67-year-old bayside diner, its interior destroyed by flooding from the storm. It was not until this month, after much deliberation, that brothers Gerald and Fred Donovan came to a difficult decision. So difficult, Gerald Donovan said, that they could not deliver the news in person.

In recent history, the territory bordered by Baltimore County, Aberdeen Proving Ground, I-95 and the south shore of the Bush River has been the most densely populated part of Harford County. There's a good reason for that. The community known as Joppatowne was one of the early large-scale communities in Maryland designed to attract people who worked in Baltimore but were looking for homes in areas away from the busy city. Similarly, Edgewood was where early, smaller scale commuter communities first took root in Harford County.

Otto Mears had big plans for the resort he was building on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The financier envisioned a lavish place with waterfront hotels, casinos and boardwalk rides that rivaled Coney Island and Atlantic City. To ensure that people could reach his Calvert County entertainment mecca, he built a railroad to Washington and constructed a pier to accommodate steamboats from Baltimore. The first train chugged into Chesapeake Beach on June 9, 1900. That same year, plats were drawn up for a second town just to the north, aptly named North Beach.
