COBB ISLAND - There was a time when the establishment that is now Shymansky's Restaurant was known more for its fights than its food. In many ways the restaurant, a low, white structure that hugs the water, typifies this Southern Maryland community. Technically the island, with a population of 822, is the dot of land separated by Neale Sound from the mainland. Conversationally, it is a term that applies to the state of mind found on this rural, watery neck of land between the Potomac and Wicomico rivers, about a two-hour drive from Baltimore.
