Sunken barges removed from lower Shore marina Maryland Natural Resources officials say two barges have been removed from the bottom of a Crisfield marina. The Department of Natural Resources says the barges, which sank about 20 years ago, were removed from a marsh near Somers Cove Marina. Somers Cover Marina Commissioner Ladell Dorman says the barges were a potential hazard to navigation and a possible pollution source. DNR officials say the removal was funded with $13,500 from the Waterway Improvement Fund, which is supported by a five percent excise tax paid by boaters when registering a vessel in Maryland.

Republican Larry Hogan entered the 38th annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake to the sound of his name being chanted. Because his opponent in the governor's race had a funeral to attend, Hogan was largely uncontested as he worked the crowd of about 4,200 of the most politically active people in Maryland. As a dozen or so supporters cheered him on, Hogan addressed reporters and accused Democrat Anthony G. Brown of not wanting to schedule enough debates. "I think the people of Maryland deserve to a have a real clear choice for a change," Hogan said.

Redevelopment projects in Hyattsville and Crisfield have been tapped for state help under "Priority Places," the Ehrlich administration's version of Smart Growth focused on revitalizing existing communities in Maryland. The two projects -- one to revive the U.S. 1 corridor through Hyattsville, a Prince George's County community, and the other to build homes and shops along the waterfront in Crisfield, Somerset County's faded "crab capital of the world" -- would receive state planning assistance and priority for any state funds that might be available, though none specifically accompanies the designation.
