Cambridge Community Mourns Loss of Local Artist.

Posted:
 CAMBRIDGE, Md.- The Dorchester County community mourns the loss of an artist.  Friends recall Monday as the kind of day Geoff Goodman would often be seen outside the store he owned with his wife April creating works of art.

His absence is being felt throughout town and especially at his store Bliss.

"Despite the sunny day we are having, it's a huge loss.  There's a big cloud over the town this week," said Heidi Greibel, who owns the Sunnyside shop across the street.

"Every nice day, just like today,  I would see him out in front of the store working on his craft.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.  I wish them the best," said local artist George Wright.

"Geoff was a sweetheart.  He was an A-plus person.  He was bigger than big.  And you just couldn't not fall in love with him, because he was that great," said fellow store owner Carol Levy-Ruark.

Robert Boyd went to the store today to buy a necklace he had seen Geoff making earlier in the week, only to find the doors closed.

"He had in his face that he cared about people.  I mean you can tell it in his work, look at his work.  You can tell he was an honest, kind, genuine person," said Boyd.

"That's his legacy.  Positive.  A lot of people have his work and they will remember him with the pieces that they bought from him," said Greibel.

The man may be gone, but he lives on in the works of art he created.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
