OCEAN CITY — John Kemenosh was shocked when he was elected to City Council in 2008. Years later and still active in his hometown, he was just as surprised to learn that his local Republican Club would recognize him for his efforts in city government.

Kemenosh was named Ocean City Republican of the Year and will be honored 6 p.m. on Friday, March 20 at Great Bay Country Club in Somers Point. The cost to attend is $30 per person or $50 per couple.

To the editor:

As owners of 3801 Asbury (one unit of a two-unit townhouse), and on behalf of the co-owner of that structure, we wish to point out that curb flooding from storm drain backups is also occurring at our location, and at many corners south of 34th Street, from Central to West avenues.

These locations are apparently not in the five-year capital plan to be corrected. Routinely, after every rainstorm, our entire neighborhood experiences backups that are further aggravated by high tides.

Living Last Supper

The Living Last Supper will again be presented 7 p.m. April 2 and 3 at the Ocean City Tabernacle, Sixth Street and Wesley Avenue. This is a living dramatization of Leonardo da Vinci’s classic painting, which depicts Jesus when he announces one of his disciples will betray him. The cast remains frozen in position and, one-by-one, each character breaks from his freeze to speak. Members of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, Ocean City Tabernacle, First Presbyterian Church and Second Cape May Baptist Church will portray Jesus and his 12 disciples. Experience an evening of drama and music followed by unique communion service. Admission is free.
