By Maddy VitaleDowntown Ocean City and the Boardwalk were bustling with activity on Saturday afternoon, as tourists and residents alike, found some bargains during Presidents Day weekend and enjoyed family time.Donna Barnett, of Ocean City, took her grandsons Nathan Schwinn, 6, and his brother Owen Schwinn, 9, of Philadelphia, to the downtown and the Boardwalk. “My daughter comes down from Philly for President’s Day weekend every year. It is a holiday tradition,” Barnett said, while walking across Seventh Street to do some shopping.The family left the Boardwalk moments earlier, after enjoying the sights and more importantly, the goodies. Barnett had something in her hands that the grandkids couldn’t wait to open.“We always get pizza when the boys come to visit,” Barnett said, holding a box filled with slices from the famous Manco & Manco Pizza.They also enjoyed some window shopping along Asbury Avenue, until something caught Owen’s eye.“I think that is a flounder,” he said of a wood carving in the window at Stainton’s. “Flounders swim sideways,” Nathan said.The brothers began to laugh.People enjoy a Saturday afternoon in Ocean City on Presidents Day weekend on the Boardwalk and peruse the downtown shops.A busier-than-usual streetscape in the downtown, with activity on the boards as well, made for an unusual sight on a brisk February dayTourists and residents popped into shops in search of bargains on the holiday weekend. Some shoppers chose to focus on the downtown, others couldn’t resist the Boardwalk, and others, like Barnett and her grandkids, did both.Amanda and Paul Donovan, of Ocean City, strolled the downtown with daughters Nina, 2, and Cecilia, nine weeks. Amanda and Paul Donovan, of Ocean City, stop in a store in downtown Ocean City to get their daughter Nina, 2, a doll she sees in the window.“We were looking at sneakers and just walking around,” Amanda Donovan said. “We are thinking about getting some coffee.”But before their coffee run, the family of four had one more stop to make.Nina pointed to a storefront window. She saw a doll in a pink dress that she had to have.The Donovans headed into the shop. Nina was all smiles.Erin Wister, of Medford, and her aunt Ann Ross, of Delran, didn’t specifically hit the boards for sales. They took a drive down to Ocean City for another reason.Wister’s 23-month-old son Carter wanted to see the water.“I told him if he slept on the way down, the water would be there when he wakes up,” Ross said.Wister pushed Carter’s stroller. He had someone else along for the ride – his three-month-old sister Cameron who snuggled up in her blankets.Erin Wister, of Medford, and her aunt Ann Ross, of Delran, bring Carter Wister and his sister Cameron to see the water and get pizza.When the family rolled up to the Boardwalk, Carter peered out of his stroller, put his hand up to block the sun from his eyes, squinted and shouted, “Water!” After a few minutes Carter was satisfied and they were on their way somewhere else.“We haven’t been here in a long time,” Ross said. “We are heading to Manco and Manco for some pizza.”For Beth and Kirk Moon, of Ocean City, Saturday afternoon was like any other.“Just a typical weekend riding our bikes,” Kirk Moon said. “This is a good weekend for business though. The second you ride down Ninth Street you see how busy it is.”Beth Moon remarked, “It is a great town to live in and it is always fun to be on our bikes.” Beth and Kirk Moon, of Ocean City, enjoy a ride on the Boardwalk Saturday afternoon.Michael Grietzer and his daughter Natalie Grietzer, of West Berlin, headed to the Jersey Shore on the holiday weekend to spend a father, daughter day and they love Ocean City. “We just wanted to walk around and see what is open,” Michael Grietzer said. “The sun feels good, but the wind is a little cold.”The Greitzers warmed their hands on their steamy hot coffee cups ready for a stop in one of their favorite Boardwalk stores – Shriver’s for some delectable confections. For Stacy Ichinaga and her daughter Hana, 11, the trip to Ocean City doesn’t take them as long as the Greitzer’s trip. They live in Egg Harbor Township. But they love Ocean City so much they spend time on the Boardwalk whenever they can, and a holiday weekend is as good a time as any. “It is busy today. The stores are open, and the sun is out,” Ichinaga said. “Hana rode her bike and I ran. We love the beach.”After the mom, daughter workouts, the two decided to look in some shops.The Ichinagas were happy with one of their interesting finds.“We got a mitten rack on sale,” Ichinaga said. “We are having a good time.”Considering it was a bit too cold for Hana’s favorite activity at the Jersey Shore – swimming, the duo settled for the next best thing. Hana said smiling, “We are going to get some fudge.”Stacy Ichinaga and her daughter Hana, 11, of Egg Harbor Township, find some good deals during the holiday weekend. Donna Barnett, of Ocean City, and her grandsons Nathan Schwinn, 6, and his brother Owen Schwinn, 9, of Philadelphia, enjoy shopping in Ocean City on Saturday during Presidents Day weekend in 2018.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A Rocky Point woman was among four people who have admitted to committing a $4-million health care fraud scheme over a two and ½ year span.Sophia Lin, 34, and three Queens residents pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiring to commit health care fraud at Brooklyn federal court. Also pleading guilty to that charge were 55-year-old Jeffrey Suh of Bay Side, 42-year-old Kang Young Chung of Woodside and 40-year-old Emily Shim of Flushing.“The fraud scheme that Mr. Suh and his employees engaged in was motivated by nothing more than greed,” said Scott Lampert, Special Agent-in-Charge of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General.The quartet, who worked at Flushing-based Plaza Medi Group, Inc. and New Plaza Group, Inc., was arrested as part of a nationwide Medicare Fraud takedown in June.Prosecutors said the foursome submitted false claims to Medicare for physical therapy, occupational therapy and chiropractic services that were not medically necessary, were often not provided and otherwise did not qualify for reimbursement from December 2010 to June 2013.Each faces up to 10 years in prison and orders to pay restitution to reimburse Medicare for the false claims paid, fines as well as forfeiture of $2,808,190 for Suh, $2,183,012 for Chung, $272,641 for Lin and $115,136 for Shim.
The 21-year-old became manager Roberto Martinez’s second signing of the summer on Thursday after completing a £4.2million move. He had an impressive spell the season before last on loan at Goodison Park and his relationship with Martinez was one of the reasons he chose to return, and Jagielka hopes his year on loan at Sevilla will have made an even bigger difference. Everton’s capture of Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu provides the side with a genuine match-winner, according to captain Phil Jagielka. “He’s always going to be a menace and create things, and I’m sure that’s why the manager has brought him in,” the England defender told evertontv. “It’s a big thing with Gerard. As far as winning matches – getting those goals, getting those crosses in, beating people, winning free-kicks and things like that – he’s something special. “We’ve not had an up-close view of him over these past 12 months but it will be interesting to see how he’s added to that and matured into his position, and it will be exciting for the fans to come and watch him. “He did really well for us in his spell on loan and looked like he was going to kick on and get a chance at Barcelona. “Obviously that didn’t really happen but he’s a fantastic player, he’s got so much ability and he’s a really good character. “It’s nice for the manager to be able to go out there and attract these players to want to come back. “It’s a nice little pat on the back for us as players and staff that the environment we put him in last time he was desperate to come back to. “We’ll welcome him with open arms and it’s good to see that the deal is done pretty early on in the summer and we can get a good pre-season out of him.” Everton are to honour former striker and current first-team coach Duncan Ferguson, who as a player scored 72 goals in 273 appearances in two spells at the club, with a testimonial this summer. Spanish side Villarreal, the opponents for the Toffees’ controversial Champions League qualifying defeat in 2004/5 when Ferguson had an apparently fair goal ruled out by referee Pierluigi Collina, will be the visitors to Goodison on August 2.
