No matter how teeny weeny the size of some bikinis, Ocean City beaches are not clothing optional. You gotta wear, well, something. You can't parade around the sand dunes completely nude or else you end up in a police report. That's what allegedly happened to Brendan Ohare, 36, (at his age, he really should know better), according to the Ocean City Police Department. At 9:26 a.m. on Monday, police responded to a report of a nude male in the public beach area near 140th and Wight streets.

With the tragic loss of two officers and the onset of the resort season's biggest holiday, the Ocean City Police Department is facing dual challenges this week. That's why Kathy Jacobs decided the town's police could use some additional community support in the wake of the deaths of officers Thomas J. Geoghegan Jr., 43, of Ocean City and Joshua D. Adickes, 27, of Berlin, in a small plane crash on Sunday. Jacobs is organizing meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner - for the department's staff through the end of the week.

Todd Ferrante, an Ocean City business owner and resident, was surveying the storm's damage Sunday morning at about 8 a.m. from the boardwalk, which had some small piles of sand caked to it. The damage he saw, he said, was cosmetic. "I have to say, Ocean City was lucky again," Ferrante said. He was looking for signs of wear at the Kite Loft, a store on the boardwalk that is in the first row of businesses along the shore, that his friend owns. The only damage he had to report back to the store's owner was one shingle missing from the roof.

Officers raided multiple businesses Wednesday in Ocean City that are suspected of trafficking counterfeit goods, a federal official said. The Homeland Security Investigations division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was the lead agency handling the execution of search and seizure warrants for "counterfeit goods or services," said Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for ICE, in a statement. This case is not related to immigration issues, he said. No one was arrested during the searches for fake designer goods and at least some of the businesses searched were near the boardwalk, said Special Agent Rich Wolf, a spokesman for the FBI's Baltimore field office.

Over the years, Buddy helped quell rowdy Ocean City club crowds, patrol sandy beaches, keep order on the famous boardwalk and assist in arrests. The veteran patrol horse could also be found at major events, such as President Bill Clinton's second inauguration parade 11 years ago. But after 16 years of service with the Ocean City Police Department, Buddy retired last month to a farm in Wicomico County, the department said yesterday. He had been suffering from arthritis and hadn't been used much toward the end of his career, a police spokesman said.
