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.

Maureen Skelly remembers her trip to the beach after she graduated from high school. She and her friends spent every last nickel and didn't have enough cash to pay the toll on their way home. They had to go into the toll office and fill out a form promising to pay the money at a later date. Now that her son, Sean, is a senior at River Hill High School, she is hoping he will make wiser decisions during his Senior Week in Ocean City. "I wanted Sean to come and hear and get educated about appropriate behavior," said Skelly, sitting in the auditorium at Reservoir High School on Wednesday before a two-hour talk.
