Maryland's highest court on Friday ruled that the Dobbins Island beach is not a public playground, overturning a lower court's decision that allowed unfettered access to all sandy areas along the shore, even those that are privately owned. The decision means boaters — including those who converge on the Magothy River each year for the "Bumper Bash" — will have to restrict themselves to the sliver of sand between the river and the "mean high water line," which marks the division between private and public property, according to the Maryland Code.

Opponents of the luxury island compound built by Daryl C. Wagner without Anne Arundel County permission asked a state appeals court this week to return the dispute to the county Board of Appeals for further hearings, contending that they did not get a fair shake when Wagner belatedly sought approvals for the construction. But lawyers for Wagner and the county told the Court of Special Appeals that there was nothing to gain by having more than the 24 hearings already held that ended with the board allowing Wagner to keep his house and replica lighthouse on Little Dobbins Island, but ordering him to raze most of the rest of his construction, including a swimming pool.

I could not help but shake my head when reading the article regarding Dobbins Island, a private property that is being totally abused by the uncaring public ("Islet at center of battle over private versus public rights," Oct. 6). This island, which once consisted of 13.5 acres, has been vandalized and diminished by persons trespassing there, perhaps completely unaware of the damage they have caused. They talk of romantic evenings by a bonfire on the beach. Ah, yes, with bushes and branches broken off nearby vegetation, adding to the erosion that has left that island reduced now to 7.2 acres.

Lawyers for the owner of an island in the Magothy River argued Thursday that if the state's highest court forces David and Diana Clickner to open their beach to the public, it would set a troubling precedent and raise liability issues for all waterfront property owners. But an attorney for the Magothy River Association, which sued the Clickners for access to a 1,200 foot swath of sand, argued that her clients have met the legal requirements to be granted an easement. The Court of Appeals on Thursday took up the case of the beach on Dobbins Island – whether the public has a right to use a beach that is privately owned, mainly because they have always done so. Last year, Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Ronald A. Silkworth granted what's called a "prescriptive easement," ruling that the beach up to where grasses and shrubs grow is public, and ordered the Clickners, who purchased the 7-acre island in 2004 with plans to build a home there, to remove a fence they'd erected.

Lisa Bender spent her summers in the 1960s sailing to Dobbins Island in the Magothy River for some summer fun. "You'd picnic, meet people and swim," the Severna Park woman said of her trips to a beach that she and many others considered to be a public place. In the 1990s, she began taking the next generation of her family there. Then David and Diana Clickner bought the 7-acre island in 2004, with plans to make it their family home. They have no interest in hosting a summerlong party or in sharing the beach with uninvited strangers who often leave their trash behind.

In a new twist in a battle for beach access between local boaters and an island owner in the Magothy River, the local environmental association has filed a lawsuit in an attempt to force the owner to negotiate. The Magothy River Association alleges in the suit filed Thursday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court that Dobbins Island is public land, because residents have been using the beaches there for decades. David L. Clickner Sr., the association claims, has reduced public access since buying the 7-acre island in 2004.

Unconvinced that a local nonprofit can come up with enough money to buy his island on the Magothy River, the owner has resurrected plans to build a house on it. David L. Clickner Sr., who bought Dobbins Island in 2004, last week presented preliminary information at a required public meeting on how he'd put in a septic system and road. He didn't provide details on the house, but in 2005, Clickner submitted plans to build a home in the range of more than 4,500 square feet. Clickner said that he put his plans on hold for more than a year, since spring 2006, to give the Magothy River Association time to raise money to buy the island.
