Our Towns Green book awards are first of kind SALISBURY In his Chronicle of Higher Education essay, "Wonder Rediscovered in Children's Books," university professor Andrew Martino humorously writes about sneaking through the children's and young adult literature sections of his local bookstore, hoping not to be discovered by his students, or worse, one of his colleagues. Though Martino was teaching world literature, from Cervantes to Tolstoy, he was hooked on books like "The Spiderwick Chronicles." A self-confessed young adult lit addict, he had "rediscovered not only what made me a reader in the first place, but also ... my imagination." Martino is not alone. Nationwide, such books are increasingly popular with all ages. According to the Association of American Publishers and American Libraries Magazine, literature for children and young adults is a multibillion-dollar industry with more than 26,000 titles published yearly How do parents choose? Fortunately, they have some help from the Virginia-based Newton Marasco Foundation, which each year partners ft Todd Parr with Salisbury U n i -versity's Literature Festival to present the Green Earth Book Awards. The awards are the nation's first to honor books pro moting stewardship. Colorful, frequently funny and enter-taining, the winning books demonstrate that imagination extends beyond Harry Potter and the wizarding world. This year's honorees pick up their awards Tuesday and the ceremony includes a talk by writer and illustrator Henry Cole, followed by a reception and book signing in the Social Room.

Elin Kelsey for "Not Your Typical Book About the Environment:" In a world of oil spills and nuclear tragedies, Toronto-born Kelsey is a voice of hope.

YMCA retains hold on Ocean Pines property By Charlene Sharpe Stiff Wi ltf OCEAN PINES Maryland's Court of Special Appeals upheld a Circuit Court decision that denied the Ocean Pines Association's claim on 26 acres once intended for a YMCA recreation center. The court issued an opinion upholding the 2010 decision of Circuit Court Judge Christian M. KahL dismissing' the lawsuit filed by the association to reclaim 26 acres on Gum Point Road that had been targeted for a YMCA. "We're very disappointed," said Tom Terry president of the OPA board of directors. Terry said the board would meet soon to discuss the case. "We are gathering information to tell us what the next steps are." The March 22 ruling is just the latest in a dispute that stems from 2002 when a local developer, Marvin Steen, gave the YMCA the land so a 57,000-square-foot recreation complex could be built there. When it was never built, OPA tried to claim the land. According to OPA's attorneys in last year's trial, the written agreement in which the land was given to the YMCA by the developer stated that the land would be turned over to the association if a building permit for the recreation center hadn't been obtained within five years. Attorney Joe Moore said no building permit had been obtained. During the trial, however, YMCA Attorney Robin Cockey maintained that a building permit for the property had been acquired, for a wildlife observation deck. - f??3. - HEAVYWEIGHT Our F.mou, ChMM-tMk $ WaHB) FXTEIinED LIMITEDJJMEJINLY!

Cockey said he was happy with the Court of Special Appeals opinion. "It's regrettable that it was necessary for a nonprofit organization like the YMCA to go to such lengths to vindicate itself," he said. Neighbors Helping Neighbors. .
