" Ocean City outgained Cumberland, 243-104, in total offense and had 17 first downs to only six for the losers.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Voters in "dry" Ocean City on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a proposal to permit consumption of alcohol by patrons in local restaurants, which would have been a first in the Jersey Shore resort's 125-year history. About 3,200 of the 4,600 people who voted - more than the number who showed up in the November election here - said no to a ballot question that sought to permit the practice called BYOB, ending the town's ban on bringing beer and wine to eateries.

The Ocean City boys' soccer team has yet to lose in an NJSIAA Group 3 state championship match. The Red Raiders improved to 2-0-3 in finals after defeating Scotch Plains-Fanwood, 2-0, in last night's championship at the College of New Jersey. Ocean City has now won its second outright title in three seasons. The Raiders were the state cochampions in 1995, 1999 and 2000. While Ocean City cherishes all of its state titles, last night's may go down as the most enjoyable one. "This is extra special, because of the season they just completed," said coach Mike Pellegrino, whose Red Raiders finished their campaign with a 24-0-1 record.

There is something awesome about a traditional hotel breakfast when it is done absolutely right. The table: Set heavily with monogrammed china and enough pieces of silverware to confound even Miss Manners. First a coffee spoon, then a fruit spoon, then a cereal spoon, plus a butter knife, a main-course fork and knife, and a fork and knife we had no idea what to use on. The staff: Smiling young waiters and waitresses hurrying to our table at our briefest stare, bowing slightly to offer fragrant goodies from bins and trays.

THE SAND IS FINE and the post-Sandy attitude is, too, on the seven-mile-long island that long ago proclaimed itself "America's Greatest Family Resort. " Families in Ocean City are typically of the very traditional variety, as was intended by the foursome of Methodist ministers who established a Christian retreat there in 1879. These holy men also instituted Blue Laws that prohibited shopping on Sundays and the sale of any kind of alcohol. The first edict is no longer in effect, but the second one lives on - A recent vote firmly enforced the city's no-BYOB policy, too. Former summer residents include Grace Kelly and Gay Talese, who grew up here.

After a day of swimming, castle-building, and sunbathing, there are few pleasures as relaxing to some vacationers as a cold beer on a warm summer's night, or a nice glass of Syrah to toast the sunset. But restaurants in the popular Jersey Shore beach town of Ocean City are banned from selling alcoholic beverages, or even allowing diners to bring their own. That could change, though, with a scheduled May 8 referendum. If the Bring Your Own Bottle proposal passes, patrons could bring their own refreshments to restaurants anywhere in Ocean City, except on the boardwalk.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - At the Jersey Shore, it was a matter of perspective Saturday as a powerful winter storm brought fierce winds, tidal flooding, and snow accumulation for more than 24 hours. To some, the 1 to 2 feet of water flooding streets in Ocean City and Margate didn't seem like much of a threat in places where nor'easters are common at this time of the year and heavy rainstorms often produce the same results. In other spots, officials lamented "record flooding" that forced a number of road closures all along the coast from Atlantic City to Cape May. Record tides were reported at Cape May Harbor and Stone Harbor: 9.38 feet and 10.52 feet, easily beating the highs registered during Sandy in 2012.

I awoke alone at 5:30 a.m. in a six-bed hostel room. It was still pitch black outside, as it typically is in Norway in December. The only sound came from the television, which I'd left on overnight - BBC News covering the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize the previous day. I had been there. Well, I had stood outside Oslo City Hall as the king of Norway arrived for the ceremony, not knowing what the fuss was about until I returned to my big, empty room outside the airport. I had to fly back to Dublin that morning.
