The death notices for my old friend Grace Shockley Copper ran in at least four newspapers, in Baltimore, Wilmington, Del., and Washington, as well as her home in Rehoboth Beach, Del. Grace, who died at age 86 on Aug. 23, was entirely up to the billing of three big cities and the small town where she earned a reputation as an unforgettable person. Here was a woman who made a deep and wide impression, although she never ventured far from the home where she was born and spent all her life. No.

Ocean City officials voted earlier this week to draft a law to restrict smoking on the beach and boardwalk beginning May 1, 2015. The proposed ordinance, which passed on a 4-3 vote at a work session for the town council on Tuesday, identifies a number of designated areas for smoking along the boardwalk and on the beach. Police will be responsible for enforcement of the law through verbal as well as written citations ranging from $25 to $1,000, a "worse-case scenario" for non-compliance.

Rehoboth Beach Rehoboth Beach has been described as being a touch Cape Cod and a little Key West. That's not as true as it used to be. With the real-estate boom, many of the town's old-fashioned clapboard and shingle cottages are being replaced by expensive condos. Affluent vacationers have made Rehoboth their destination beach, which is changing the character of the place - sometimes for the worse, but usually for the better. Over the years, the town has become increasingly cosmopolitan.

Most families have their own beach traditions. For some, it is a trek to Ocean City every summer. For others, it is North Carolina's Outer Banks. But for many, Rehoboth Beach, Del., is the place to go to swim in the salty Atlantic and consume the many incarnations of greasy beach food. Just a short drive north from sprawling Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach offers a different experience than its Maryland neighbor. While Ocean City's main oceanside avenue is more than 100 blocks, Rehoboth is smaller with a boardwalk only about a mile long.

Stroll down any street in the heart of Rehoboth Beach and you'll see the trees. Hundreds of them line the sidewalks, tracing paths from the restaurants and hotels to the beach. They look identical, these leafy red sunset maples and zelkovas. But each tree has its own story.Down by the roots you'll find the clue: A small marble tablet engraved with the name of someone -- someone young or old, tourist or resident, stricken by disease or accident. The trees in Rehoboth don't just provide comfort from the sun. They provide comfort to people who have lost loved ones.

After four years of construction along its main drag, Rehoboth Beach is especially ready for its annual seasonal close-up. There's a refurbished bandstand at the boardwalk for evening concerts, a new high-end hotel scheduled to open by the end of the summer and a new farmers' market setting up in the park behind the visitors' center. It's yet another new chapter for a destination that's had as many incarnations as Madonna -- Rehoboth Beach started as a Methodist prayer camp, has been known as a gay mecca, and now sees its share of families.

Bob Bowman gets to the question before it can even be raised. "You guys want to know if Michael's coming back," he says to a pair of visitors. Michael is Michael Phelps , the greatest swimmer of all time and Bowman's pupil from gawky adolescence. Twitter has buzzed in recent weeks with rumors of Phelps abandoning his planned retirement. "I'd be the first to know," Bowman says. "And I haven't heard a thing from him. So the imminent comeback is not so imminent. " Furthermore, he would not want Phelps to resume swimming unless the great Olympian was absolutely committed, more committed than he was leading up to the 2012 London Games.
