Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club is something of an enigma in the picture of Ocean City area golf. It is an excellent course, designed by perhaps the best-known modern course architect, Robert Trent Jones. But it is primarily a private club; the only way you can play it is to be a member at another club and ask for reciprocal privileges, or play as a guest of an Ocean Pines member.Although Mr. Jones once told me that it was not one of his best efforts, the members seem to like the Ocean Pines course, and it is crowded most of the time.

Five people were injured near Ocean City on Sunday when their boat exploded, police said. The explosion occurred shortly after the boaters boarded the 24-foot inboard/outboard motor boat in Ocean Pines, Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson said. Owner Neil Edwards had backed the vessel away from the dock without incident, Thomson said. But when he shifted into forward, it exploded. The passengers all were blown off the boat or jumped, Thomson said. Neighbors helped them out of the water.

Frances M. "Peg" Spath, a homemaker who enjoyed vacationing in Ocean City , died July 22 of a stroke at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. She was 98. The daughter of Dr. John Milton King, a dentist, and Francesca Heinekamp King, a homemaker, Frances Margaret King was born in Norwich, Conn., and when she was 9, moved with her family to Baltimore. After graduating in 1933 from the old Seton High School, where she played varsity basketball, she went to work as a comptometer operator — using an early adding machine — at the old Esso Oil Co. refinery in Canton.

Sandy Bunting, at 5 feet, 4 inches, stood tall on the second day of the Ocean Pines Golf Club Women's Championship, particularly on the first nine of that final day.After the first round, defending champion Nancy Hunter had a five-stroke lead over Bunting (84 to 89) and the reputation of being the champion the last three years. Then Bunting fired a two-over-par 39 to begin day two, and Hunter came a bit unglued, eventually falling to a one-stroke Bunting victory.Asked if she was discouraged at being five strokes in arrears, Bunting said, "A little, but I decided to try to stay with Nancy and get one back at a time and that's how it went."

The classroom is at a country club and the students are golfers, but this is not the usual teaching academy, one devoted to stance, grip and swing. This school focuses on pace of play, rules of the game and course etiquette.Normally, these are topics that generate a lot of discussion, period. Lots of talk; no action.Not so at Ocean Pines Country Club in Berlin, where new members of the Maryland Interclub Senior Golfers Association are required to complete a short refresher course before being allowed to play.

For a time this summer, family and friends visiting the trim gray and white cedar-framed contemporary in Ocean Pines that Bob and Barbara Krebs call their beach home were politely asked not to use the front door. Not that they weren't welcome, mind you, but a wren had chosen to build its nest inside an ornamental wreath decorating the front door and Barbara was waiting for the young birds to find their wings.Nearly 10 years ago, the Krebses selected a lot in Ocean Pines, a resort community on the Eastern Shore, and began thinking about the kind of home they hoped to build after Bob retired from his job as an engineer and partner at Gaudreau Inc., a Baltimore architectural firm.

OCEAN PINES -- Barbara and Ed Weitzel looked in eight states for their retirement home before they concluded, like Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz," that there's no place like home.The former Ellicott City residents spent a decade looking in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. By May 1994, they had almost decided to buy in Bethany Beach when they found their townhouse in Salt Grass Cove at Ocean Pines."We had an argument at dinner over the house," Mrs. Weitzel recalled of the near-purchase in Bethany.

A year ago, Ron and Barb Ferger left their Pasadena home for a weekend jaunt to Ocean City. The plan was to enjoy Summerfest, the resort's end-of-season festival. Great fans of Ocean City, these two retired Anne Arundel County schoolteachers loved visiting the beach. (Barb Ferger remembers a recent year when her date book recorded a trip every month.) However, Summerfest 2004 would prove to be an unforgettable visit. They were about to become shore residents after a spontaneous visit to a home for sale in South Ocean Pines.

I normally agree with columnist Dan Rodricks ' assertions and conclusions, but I was disappointed with his comments regarding Attorney General Doug Gansler's gubernatorial campaign ( "10 weeks out, 2 questions for Maryland Democrats," April 12). Mr. Rodricks chose to focus on the beach-house party in Delaware last summer that Mr. Gansler briefly visited. However, either he doesn't know the facts about that incident or he simply considers them irrelevant. The Instagram photo does show Mr. Gansler amid a group of partying teenagers, including his son. The photo also shows adult chaperons keeping an eye on the revelers - but Mr. Rodricks doesn't bother to point that out. He also neglects to note that the party house was rented for graduation week festivities by five sets of student parents who slept in the house all week - with at least two of them chaperoning at all times.

Is Ocean City the most dangerous place to live in Maryland? Even more dangerous than Baltimore? The surprising answer is yes, at least according to analysis by Movoto , a California-based real estate brokerage firm known for its data-based research of various trends and market conditions across the nation. The company this week released its list of the safest places to live in Maryland. Movoto said its report looked at places with populations of at least 5,000 and then ranked them based on FBI crime statistics in 2012.

Michael Maykrantz was on duty at a fire house on 74th street in Ocean City when the floor began to shake and the doors started to rattle. At Bart Rader's house in Ocean Pines, a loud boom “like somebody blew something up” preceded shaking so heavy that it rattled a 50-pound metal sculpture against the wall. Miles away in Annapolis, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan was meeting in state Sen. James Mathias' office when he got a text message from his daughter: “What the heck was that?
