Community input sought for Patterson Park Master Plan BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Rather than slightly expanding the Virginia Baker Recreation Center parking lot for $500,000, the Recreation and Parks Department will be working with the Friends of Patterson Park and community at large to update the entire master plan for Patterson Park. “There’s so much more you can do [with $500,000],� said Bob Wall, recreation chief for Rec and Parks. The money was to come from about $3 million in funds dedicated to renovating the rec center. Last summer, when the Patterson Park Working Group compromised with the city and decided on slightly expanding the rec center parking lot to add a little more parking, Chief of Parks Bill Vondrasek warned the group that—due to the fact that a retaining wall would have to be moved—it may be expensive. A meeting of the Patterson Park Working Group on Tuesday, Jan. 7, with Recreation and CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

Abdulmalik Abdulla and Ahmed Mohssen,  both of Baltimore, were arrested on Jan. 17 on federal charges of conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud and wire fraud in connection with a scheme to illegally redeem food stamp benefits in exchange for cash, according to a statement issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The criminal complaint filed on Jan. 17 alleges that the defendants, who operate Sam’s NY Grocery on the 200 block of N. Milton Ave., received more than $1.5 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food but instead split the proceeds with food stamp recipients The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, previously known as the Food Stamp Program, is administered by the Food and Nutrition Service of the United States Department of Agriculture, together with state agencies. Retailers bill the government in return for providing approved food items to low-income recipients. SNAP reimbursements are paid to retailers through electronic funds transfers. Authorized retailers use a point-of-sale terminal that checks the electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card information and deducts the cash value of the purchase from the customer’s SNAP benefit balance. To participate in the program, retailers must apply to and be approved by Food and Nutrition Service. SNAP retailers receive instruction regarding the requirements and regulations of the SNAP program, such as that only eligible food items

can be exchanged for EBT benefits and that a retailer may never exchange EBT benefits for cash or non-food items. The complaint alleges that the defendants exchanged EBT benefits for cash--typically paying half the value of the EBT benefits in cash. “Retailers who trade food stamp credits for cash are on notice that federal authorities are on their trail,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein, in a written statement. “Taxpayers fund the program to provide food for needy recipients, not to turn retail store cash registers into ATMs.” The defendants face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each count of wire fraud and a maximum of five years in prison for conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud.

Neighbors and friends, many from southeast Baltimore, have raised more than $17,600 to help the victim of the Jan. 14 assault and carjacking, which occurred on the 3400 block of Foster Ave. Jon Fogg was walking from his car that evening when, according to his family’s account, a man on an orange bike asked him for a cigarette. When Fogg said he didn’t smoke, the man then threatened him with an apparent weapon. Fogg gave the thief his wallet, laptop, and car keys.The attacker took everything, and beat Fogg with a large landscaping brick, before stealing his car.

The attack fractured his skull six times, broke multiple bones in his hands, and knocked out eight of his teeth. Fogg is out of the hospital, but will have a long recovery. His family has set up a Gofundme page to help him with his medical and dental bills: http://www.gofundme. com/6ba5gk. Additionally, Canton-area restaurants are planning a fundraiser, which will be announced on the Canton Neighbors Facebook page. Fogg’s assailant remains at large.  The victim’s car, a 2009 silver Toyota Prius, remains missing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Southeast District at 410-396-2422.

Patterson Park: Master Plan

Parks representatives including Wall, Vondrasek, Chief of Capital Development Gennady Schwartz, and Kate Brower, urban planner for the department, confirmed Vondrasek’s earlier warning. Following the meeting, which was facilitated by City Councilman Jim Kraft, Working Group representatives were informed that the compromise plan—which made provisions for six parking spaces at the park’s Casino building and 13 spaces at the rec center— would not be adopted. “I think everybody was pretty happy at that meeting,” commented Wall. “They were in shock,” joked Jennifer Arndt Robinson, president of the Friends of Patterson Park. She added that she felt scrapping the compromise plan in favor of a comprehensive update of the park’s Master Plan was the right thing to do. “I think the goal of the Working Group at the beginning was to get to this point where we would do a Master Plan review,” she said. The park’s original Master Plan was completed in 1998. Wall said that about 75 percent of the plan has come to fruition. Wall and Arndt Robinson say community input will play a huge role in the upcoming discussions on the updated Master Plan, which will address park access, the recreation center, and more. Arndt Robinson said that while the Patterson Park Working Group—which included representatives from each of the community groups near the park—was an effective way to reach a parking compromise with the city, she feels that discussions on the Master Plan should be even more inclusive. “I think we want some opportunity for people who don’t necessarily come through that structure,” she said. Wall added that the “blue-collar part” has been historically under-represented in park planning discussions. The importance of the Boat Lake, as well as the popularity of the Fishing Rodeo, underscores the value of that

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

demographic’s input, he said. “A priority was the Boat Lake, and other people weren’t seeing that at all,” said Wall. “Then, we had our first fishing rodeo...with 150 kids, they realized what an asset it could be.” The Master Plan discussions will include a facilitator. The whole process has a budget of about $100,000, Wall said. A first meeting has not yet been scheduled. “If you’ve got a certain amount of money and the first (1998) Master Plan worked well, then let’s do another one and find out what the community really wants,” Wall commented. Arndt-Robinson noted that while the first Master Plan covered facilities and infrastructure, this one should also cover programming and historical matters as well— this summer, Baltimore Heritage is coordinating an archaeological probe of the park, which was the site of a major military confrontation during the War of 1812. Facilities, however, will be a major focus of Master Plan discussions. Wall noted that he has never felt that the Virginia Baker Recreation Center, which opened in 1974, was correctly sized or located. “It was too small to begin with, because they guys who played different sports were always competing for gym time,” he said. Another discussion topic could be the ice rink, which, though Wall called it “very serviceable,” has been through a few outer “bubbles.” The boards for protecting spectators from errant hockey pucks are mostly frozen in place, Wall added. “It’s old, but people love it,” he said. “The staff down there makes it work.” Arndt-Robinson said that the park’s promenade—a 19th-Century brick walkway below the Pagoda—could be more of a focal point of the park per the new Master Plan. “It’s a great community gathering place,” she said. Wall did say that he believes the northern side of the park “needs to stay as passive as possible.”

The Canton Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library is one step closer to reopening. On Sept. 11, 2013, the Board of Estimates awarded the job of renovating the building to JA Argetakis Contracting Company of 3723 Eastern Ave. The Highlandtown company put forward a $1.65 million bid for the project, which was the lowest in a field of five. JA Argetakis Contracting could not be reached for comment. A notice to proceed was issued to the company on Dec. 23, 2013, and the completion date specified in the city’s request for proposals is June 15, 2015. The Canton Branch was closed on Jan. 28, 2012, for a renovation that was supposed to last 540 days. The Michael Group was originally chosen for the project, but, due to termite damage, the renovation turned out to be a bigger job than the city had indicated in the original request for proposals. “The termite damage required a redesign of the proposed work,” wrote Martin Courtney of the city’s General Services Department in May of last year. Courtney added that the discovery of termite damage caused a delay in the issuance of a “notice to proceed” to The Michael Group, which disagreed with the city regarding the delay and potential change orders to the contract. Both parties decided not to proceed with the contract. The Canton Branch, which first opened in 1886 at the intersection of Ellwood Ave. and O’Donnell St., is the only branch of the Enoch Pratt Free library that is housed in one of

According to the library’s website, the Enoch Pratt Free Library began in 1882, when Baltimore businessman Enoch Pratt offered the city “a Central library, four branch libraries, and an endowment of $1,058,333.” Pratt reportedly specified that his libraries were to be used by people of all ethnicities and economic means, who could take out books as long as they “handle them carefully and return them.” In 1886, the Canton Branch opened with five other branches, all within a five-month period. June 2015 is some time away, but there is an alternative to a full-fledged Canton Branch library. A “Little Free Library,” or community book exchange in which participants take and donate books, is on the property of Messiah Lutheran Church, on the east end of O’Donnell Square, next to the Canton library. The sturdy little book box was conceived and built by roommates Emily Brown, Sarah Papania and Christa Huber, with friend Greg Strouse. For more information, write to cantonlittlefreelibrary@gmail.com. The Friends of the Canton Library has remained active throughout the Canton Branch’s closure. On Saturday, Feb. 8, the group is holding an event called “Canton Memories: History Being Made Everyday.” Local captains Beth Christman and Brian Hope will be speaking on piloting on the Chesapeake Bay and the Port of Baltimore. Refreshments will be served, and participants are encouraged to bring their own Canton and southeast Baltimore memorabilia to show and tell. The event is Saturday, Feb. 8, 2 p.m., at the Messiah Lutheran Church, 1025 S. Potomac St. For more information, contact the Friends of Canton Library, 410-558-1881.

Pilgrimage to Poe’s by ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

If you’re talking about a famous person from or associated with Baltimore—Frank Zappa, John Waters, etc.—you’re probably not using the adjective “normal.”  Edgar Allan Poe, who has been credited with a huge influence on the horror and science fiction genres, as well as introducing the detective novel, may have set that trend.  “You might call him the ‘leader of the Cult of the Unusual,’” said Jules Verne, another 19th Century writer If not normal, he was, and is, certainly popular; a surprisingly large number of surprisingly young people braved this weekend’s cold for an insider’s view of his one-time residence on the weekend of his birthday, which was Jan. 19, 1809. The house at 203 N. Amity St., not too far from Route 40’s intersection with Martin Luther King Blvd., is where Poe lived with his grandmother, aunt and cousins for a couple years during his early 20s. Later, he would marry one of those cousins. The family rented and moved to the house, which had been built in about 1830, at the end of 1832 or beginning of 1833, according to literature provided by the Edgar Allan Poe House. The house was originally part of a duplex. The other half, lacking famous historical tenants, was torn down. Back then, west Baltimore was different. “This was considered the countryside,” said tour guide Jessica Nelson, adding that the house has no plumbing and electricity, but did at one time have an outhouse. Also, the fact that the home had a closet was a source of pride for the inhabitants. “People actually paid property taxes based on how many windows they had, and how

many closets,” said Nelson. “This wasn’t a dump, so to speak.It was a nice little house.” Nevertheless, the family was very poor. Poe’s aunt, Maria Clemm, rented the place with a pension provided by her mother, Elizabeth Cairnes Poe, who received the money for her deceased husband’s Revolutionary War service. Clemm supported her nephew, Edgar Allan Poe, and two children, Henry Clemm and Virginia Eliza Clemm. Taking a job in Richmond, Va., the famous author was the first of the five to move out, in 1835. At about that time, according to the museum’s literature, the grandmother died, and her pension ceased. Poe married Virginia Clemm, and she and her mother accompanied him in Richmond. Poe’s tenure at 203 N. Amity St. was before he received widespread acclaim, before that photo showcasing his Basset-hound eyes and thin mustache was taken. There he wrote the short story “Berenice,” which deals with—to put it very lightly—disfigurement. The story did bring a measure of fame, or infamy, to Poe, when it was published in the “Southern Literary Messenger” in 1835. Five years later, he published a toned-down version. Though small and dimly-lit, the Poe house cannot be credited as the writer’s dark inspiration. Nevertheless, visiting the place is a great diversion for both the die-hard and casual fan who wishes to make a connection with the author and interact with Poe enthusiasts and experts. The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum is currently fund-raising to open during regular hours during the spring and summer months. It may be opened for special occasions during the off-season, as it was this weekend for Poe’s 205th birthday. Check poe.baltimore. org for more information. The museum also has a Facebook page: facebook.com/ PoeBaltimore.

Opened this weekend for Poe’s birthday, his former home at 203 N. Amity St. was quite the attraction. | Photo by Erik Zygmont

REAL ESTATE

BY MARIO VALLONE

Want to sell your home this spring? Start now The holidays have passed and New Year’s resolutions have been broken; in real estate, this means that the slowest months are behind us, and the market is starting to pick up. Most buyers and sellers are aware of the slow winter market. For buyers, it means fewer competing offers, as well as fewer houses to choose from. For a seller, it means a potential longer wait for a sale, and perhaps a lower offer should be considered. One thing is certain: Here in the real estate market, we don’t rely on a groundhog in Punxsutawney to let us know when winter ends. Whether or not Phil goes back to bed, the market starts to pick up in February. Statistics can be deceiving. Looking at last year’s numbers, January and February saw the fewest number of home sales. However, looking at the sales of each month does not provide the clearest picture of buying activity, because most buyers take 30 to 60 days to secure financing. This means there were fewer buyers in November through January, resulting in a lower number of sales in January and February. The busiest month of 2013 in Baltimore City was June, in which 726 properties exchanged hands. In contrast, January saw just 382 sales. Now let’s look at zip codes 21230 and 21224 specifically. Eighty-eight houses sold in February; in March that number nearly doubled, to 154 sales. What does all this mean? By starting your sales process now, you could save thousands of dollars. Start by

interviewing a real estate agent. At the outset, he or she will assist you by recommending certain repairs prior to putting your house on the market. In some cases, it may just be a matter of de-cluttering, painting, spackling, or other minor cosmetic work. In other scenarios, the seller may have some serious work to complete. In either situation, you may want to hire a professional to do the work. By starting early, you have time to get several quotes from contractors, plumbers, electricians, roofers, etc, so that you can have the best work completed for the best price. When sellers wait to make repairs until the last minute—post-home inspection comes to mind—they are forced to complete repairs as quickly as possible, leaving enough time for only a quote or two before the work gets started. If you have owned the house for years, there may be some serious de-cluttering. You will have time to go through your items and determine what to pitch, donate, or put in storage. Too many times, sellers end up throwing away perfectly good items, because they ended up in a pinch when it was time to move. Even worse, they pay to have items moved, only to throw them away when they get to the new house! Being prepared for the upcoming uptick in buying activity is an easy way to save yourself thousands of dollars, so get started this month. Mario Vallone is a realtor for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Inner Harbor.

BIRDS HOUSE

BY ANDY MINDZAK

Angelos the wise miser So, please don’t get too angry with me for what I’m about to say: Peter Angelos is doing the right thing by not going after the remaining free agents. Seriously, please don’t get mad and just hear me out. This might be the first time I agree with him not going after particular free agents, but let’s take a look at who is available: First up is Nelson Cruz, outfielder. The O’s signed outfielder Delmon Young to a minor league deal which is A-OK with me. Sure the guy is a whack job and has a few screws loose in his head, but he does have talent. The former 1st overall pick in the 2003 draft, Young had a great season in 2010 for the Minnesota Twins, as he batted .298 with 21 home runs and 112 runs batted in. Last year, between the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies, he hit a combined .260 with 11 HR and 38 RBI in 103 games. Most people were clamoring for Cruz. At this point of free agency, people tend to develop beer goggles and start yelling at Angelos to sign whoever is available, in this case Cruz. The reason they should NOT get Cruz— well there are a few reasons. Sure the guy hits for power, as evidenced by his 27 HR last year in only 109 games. Why, you ask, did he only play in 109 games last year? Oh, that’s because he served a 50-game suspension for being named in the Biogenesis scandal. So who knows if the power will be there moving forward. What has been there for the past three seasons has been his terrible on-base percentage: .312 in 2011, .319 in 2012, and .327 last year. Not that great for a big slugger like Cruz, who made $10.5 million last year. Surely he wouldn’t ask for that much now, but even $8 million is too much for a player who really is a one-trick pony which might not have that one trick anymore. One glaring hole on the O’s roster is starting pitching. One of the “better� pitchers available who would not cost the Orioles a draft pick compensation is Matt Garza. Not a bad option, but Garza made $10.25

million last year. Pretty good salary for a mediocre pitcher. How mediocre is he? His career record is 67-67 with a 3.84 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. In 191 starts, he has a whopping total of nine complete games. That’s it. Seems pretty average to me and not worth the money. Ubaldo Jimenez is also available, but let’s not let his 2013 season cloud our judgment. Last year he went 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA. 2012 saw him go 9-17 with a 5.40 ERA, and he posted a record of 10-13 in 2011 with a 4.68 ERA. Which Ubaldo will you get? Either way, you will get an Ubaldo who walks a batter almost every other inning (80 walks last year and 95 the year before), and his WHIP isn’t exactly that wonderful (career 1.34). Not someone who I would want to gamble that much money on, along with a draft pick. The O’s bailed on the Tanaka sweepstakes, which is OK by me. You could get Yu Darvish, or you could get Daisuke Matsuzaka. Early word is he’s more Darvish, but for that price, I’d rather hold off. A.J. Burnett’s name has been tossed around, but let’s be honest, I wouldn’t want him anywhere near a mound at Camden Yards unless he’s on the opposing team. The only player I feel they should go after is closer Fernando Rodney. This way they can keep their setup men as they are, with Brian Matusz facing lefties and Tommy Hunter facing righties. Rodney also wouldn’t cost too much, certainly far less than Jim Johnson, and will still have a high level of success. Either way, if the Orioles are going to spend money, I would rather it be on players who are worth it. Let’s not forget: after the 2015 season, Chris Davis, Matt Wieters, Darren O’Day, Hunter, Wei-Yin Chen, and Bud Norris will hit the free agent market, and the O’s will want some extra cash lying around to pay those guys rather than an overrated Cruz, Garza, or Jimenez. If that does in fact happen, you can thank Angelos now for saving up. Let’s just hope that is the case.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
