If early numbers are an accurate indication, Ocean City has seen a better tourism season so far this year than in the last one, though not as prosperous a summer as 2009's was by Independence Day. More people have visited the resort in May and June 2011 than during those months in 2010, according to wastewater flow and room tax figures — two methods town and county officials use to gauge the amount of people visiting. The demoflush figures — which measure how many times Ocean City's toilets were flushed, by seeing how much wastewater gets treated — reflects an approximation of how many people were in the resort.

It’s been almost 40 years since Maryland’s District Court system began operating in July 1971, and Dixie Scholtes is just one month shy of being able to say she’s worked for the District Court system since it opened. “It’s been a great job, so many changes in 40 years. We grew up together, the District Court and I,” she said. Born and raised in Delaware, Scholtes — whose maiden name is Lecates — graduated from Delmar High School in 1968. She spent summers working in Ocean City, Md., driving the boardwalk train, then working a boardwalk game stand, then serving as a motorcycle meter maid.
