Kraft airs opinion on  liquor phase-out BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

City Councilman James Kraft elaborated on his views concerning the liquor portion of proposed zoning rewrite, which would phase out liquor stores in residential zones by prohibiting them from selling liquor after a two year grace period. “This issue is not a zoning issue,” he told the Fell’s Point Residents Association last Wednesday. ‘This is a liquor enforcement issue. The majority of my colleagues feel the same way.” Kraft said that he was addressing the association at the body’s request. At FPRA’s last meeting, Michael Snidal, Director of Community Engagement for the Citizens Planning and Housing Association had made a presentation to seek the association’s support for the liquor phaseout. Snidal has been visiting 1st District neighborhood associations in recent months with the purpose of obtaining letters of support for the phaseout. The letters, written to Kraft, CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Woman attacked by teens in Canton robbery attempt BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

A woman was assaulted by two female teenagers, and a group of teens tried to steal her phone and purse, while she was walking in the 3400 block of Dillon St. on Feb. 27. According to police, the victim, who is 51 years old and speaks little English, was found crying by a resident on the 3400 block of Foster Ave. A Spanish-speaking police officer ascertained that she’d been assaulted.

The woman told police that at about 3:17 p.m., she was walking along the 3400 block of Dillon St. at Highland Ave. when she was approached by 8-10 black juveniles, who demanded her phone and her purse. When she wouldn’t surrender them, a female suspect tried to take them from her, unsuccessfully. The victim reportedly told police that she fell to the ground during the struggle and was kicked, and CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Latin Palace called to Liquor Board  for hosting live entertainment BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Latin Palace, the 17-year-old Latino restaurant and dance and music venue at 509-513 S. Broadway, has been called before the Liquor Board for several license violations and non-cooperation. The violations have nothing to do with alcohol, but include hosting live entertainment with a restricted liquor license and not cooperating with the liquor inspector. According to the Liquor Board, the Latin Palace is not allowed to have live entertainment—at least not dancing and boxing—per restrictions on its license. “Last year, on Nov. 3, a police report indicates that patrons were dancing, which violates the bar’s restriction on live entertainment,” says Liquor Board acting Executive Secretary Douglas Paige. Additionally, according to a Liquor Board memo, in February, the board received a 311 complaint that Latin Palace would be hosting a boxing event, a form of live entertainment. The memo from liquor inspector Karen Brooks, dated Feb. 20, states that she visited Latin Palace and told the licensee, Enrique Ribadeneira, that his license did not allow him to host this type of event, and if he did he would be in violation. Brooks’ memo indicates that Ribadeneira told her the event was already promoted— and that it would proceed, regardless. “I reiterated that he could not have the boxing match,” Brooks said in the memo. Brooks attended the boxing event, which was hosted by the Baltimore Boxing Club and featured boxers from all over Maryland.

He has the right  to offer live  entertainment per his  zoning. There was  never any hearing  where restrictions  were placed on Mr. Ribadeneira’s  license. She said it attracted about 140 spectators. For that event, Ribadeneira was charged with both an entertainment violation and not cooperating with the liquor inspector. His attorney, John Pica, says that Ribadeneira is not in the wrong and is having live entertainment lawfully. “He has the right to offer live entertainment per his zoning,” Pica says. “There was never any hearing where restrictions were placed on Mr. Ribadeneira’s license. The Liquor Board could not find a date when the restrictions were put on it.” Pica says that Ribadeneira has been in business for 17 years and has had few violations over that time, and that Latin Palace is an important institution in the Latino community. The hearing is scheduled for March 27.

Mustang Inn called for a public hearing BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The Mustang Inn, a bar located at 3203 Eastern Ave., has been called for a public hearing before the Liquor Board because 119 nearby residents, real estate owners, and homeowners have signed a petition requesting one. The petition states that “the Mustang Inn has proven to be a nuisance property in the Canton and Highlandtown communities. Numerous complaints of loud noise, loitering, over-serving and assault have originated from this bar. We believe that this establishment has

repeatedly violated Rule 3.12, which states, ‘Licensees shall operate their establishments in such a manner as to avoid disturbing the peace, safety, health, quiet, and general welfare of the community.’” According to Liquor Board charging documents, the licensee, Ginger Cornejo, is being called before the board for two specific instances of disturbing the peace in October of 2013. The hearing is scheduled for March 13.

Sagamore Develoment builds support  for Recreation Pier renovation BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The group that wants to renovate Fell’s Point’s Recreation Pier into a “world-class, boutique, luxury hotel,” have added another community group’s support behind their plans, which would widen and improve the sidewalk on the water side of Thames St., from Ann St. to Broadway, rather than extend the waterfront Promenade out around the pier. Last Wednesday, members of the Fell’s Point Residents Association voted strongly to support the proposal put forward by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank’s development firm, Sagamore Development Company. Association member Lew Diuguid said that the body voted to support the overall proposal, and explicitly expressed support for the company’s plan to forgo the Promenade. He said the association also stipulated that the city should not see this as a precedent, but should continue to enforce its development policy of a continuous Promenade from Canton to Federal Hill, except in this instance. During the meeting, both Diuguid and his wife Kay Hogan noted that, historically, the 100-year-old building did not have a promenade around it. “On its face, it would seem to me that to put a promenade around the building would destroy its historical background, because

there never was a promenade around it,” Diuguid said. Todd Harvey, lead architect for the project, said that the National Park Service and the Maryland Historical Trust would likely argue against a promenade around the Rec Pier as well. “We’re not sure we’d even be allowed to widen that pier, even if we were physically able to do it or it was feasible to do it,” he added. “We’re talking years of modification and delay before we even start planning,” commented Steve Siegel of Sagamore Development. First District City Councilman Jim Kraft, who attended the meeting, said that the best chance of getting the city to grant a variance on the Promenade requirement was to clearly show community support for the measure. “The administration made it clear to me, when it was mentioned, that they wanted the Promenade around the Rec Pier,” Kraft said. He added, however, that the Promenade rule is “all based on the insistence of the community,” that came out of charrettes and meetings held since 1999 to tackle the future of the Rec Pier as it sat unused and deteriorating after the end of its run as a set for “Homicide: Life on the Street.”

Latest state recognition a feather in  the cap for Wolfe Street Academy BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The Maryland State Department of Education recently recognized Upper Fell’s Point’s Wolfe Street Academy as a “Title I Highest Performing Reward School,” a designation, based on standardized test scores, that Principal Mark Gaither says has been long in the making. “What it is is just really good education,” he said. “When you teach really good stuff, just throw any test at us, and I think our kids are going to do really well.” Gaither added that this is now the ninth year that the pre-K-5 school has met “every standard the state has set for us,” and that 89 percent of its students are reading at or above grade level. “I think at some level they are getting better at the state level in recognizing these things,” he said.

The most recent state recognition puts Wolfe Street Academy, located at Wolfe and Gough streets, among the top 18 Title I schools in the state, but Gaither elaborates on that. “If you control for poverty and [students in the process of learning English], we are the top performing school in the state,” he said. Wolfe Street Academy is one of three charter schools operated by Baltimore Curriculum Project, a nonprofit organization. The other two BCP-operated schools are City Springs Elementary, 100 S. Caroline St., and Hampstead Hill Academy, a pre-K-8 school at Linwood Ave. and Fleet St. Hampstead Hill Principal Matthew Hornbeck is Gaither’s brother. Wolfe Street Academy—like the other two BCP-operated charter schools—departs somewhat from the traditional charter model in that, like a traditional public school,

it accepts every student from within the school’s zone. “Our schools existed as traditional public schools before becoming charters,” said Larry Shugam, executive vice president and chief development officer for BCP. Wolfe Street Academy was singled out in 2011 as an “80 and 80” school. Then-CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools Andres Alonso noted that 80 percent of the school’s students were rated as “proficient” or better in state exams, while the school had an 80 percent poverty rate. For the past two years, Wolfe Street Academy has been an “80/80/80” school. The third “80” represents the fact that the school has over 80 percent minority enrollment. Gaither says that, somewhat ironically, the demographics of Wolfe Street Academy have become a little more representative of the surrounding neighborhood zone since the school became a charter. With the school’s improvement, Gaither has noticed that those with the means to send their kids elsewhere— either to a private school or different charter— have been less likely to do so. Some kids who left Wolfe Street Academy have even come back. The push for Wolfe Street Academy to “go charter” began in 2005, when Gaither—who grew up in Baltimore, left, and returned to settle with his family—was the new principal. “It was really the whole community doing it, but I really sort of led the charge,” he said. The issue was the school’s curriculum—or

teaching methods and philosophy. When Gaither took over the school, which as a public school was called General Wolfe Elementary, it was—per BCPS policy— implementing Direct Instruction, a curriculum developed at the University of Oregon in the 1960s. Gaither says that Direct Instruction was in use before his arrival. Once he started, though, “there was a re-dedication to implementing it correctly—with fidelity to the program,” he said. Results were apparent, but the starting point had been low. “We weren’t busting any finishing lines, but we were moving,” Gaither said. Unfortunately, BCPS decided to move the school system on to a different curriculum. “The only way we were going to have confidence that we could keep [Direct Instruction] was by going charter,” he said. “BCP was a natural fit because they were using Direct Instruction.” Gaither says that that while his school enjoys certain freedoms unique to charters, he sees Wolfe Street Academy as a “Petri dish” and will only make changes that would be replicable in the public school system. “If I felt what we’re doing as a charter school was in some way limiting the educational possibilities of a traditional school, then I wouldn’t want to be a charter,” he said. “Give us the same kids; give us the same rules. Let us do it the way we think it will help, and we will show you it works.”

Artist switches from landscapes to the Great Beyond BY ERIK ZYGMONT

EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Federal Hill’s American Visionary Art Museum is an apt place for the work of an artist who literally experienced a vision. Or maybe he didn’t. “Vision is not the right word,” said Donald Pass, according to a website dedicated to his work, donaldpass.com. “It was really like a veil had been lifted.” In 1969 in a churchyard in Sussex, England, Pass, who had been a landscape painter, was looking at the grave of a Royal Air Force pilot when the world as he knew it faded away and he saw angels guiding souls as they rose from the Earth. Throughout his life, Pass experienced other visions. He saw a luminous face expand to fill a room. As a child, he saw an angel with a lion’s face standing near a hedge. The vision in the churchyard, however, was Pass’s most vivid and extensive. The experience is now known as his vision of the Resurrection, the inspiration for his most famous works. Since Feb. 28, AVAM, 800 Key Highway, has been displaying a selection of those works in “The Hope We Seek,” an exhibit that will

run through Feb. 22 of next year. Pass’s work appears to have JudeoChristian implications, though neither the exhibit itself nor Pass’s quotes as found online explicitly mention it. Pass—a normal guy who navigated times of relative plenty and lack; marriage, fatherhood, a divorce and a second marriage—did say this, however: “I believe that every one being, that every creature on Earth, is held in compassion by God, and I believe God is the center of compassion. This is the one thing that came through all this. It’s the one thing I felt all the way through this, is this overwhelming sense of compassion.” The above quote and others—by Pass himself, his admirers including Pete Townshend, as well as similarly-disposed artists such as William Blake—are posted in the exhibit among the artist’s works, lending context to the otherworldly images of airy yet substantive beings shepherding multitudes of unadorned humans to destinations unknown. The exhibit was curated by AVAM founder and director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger. Pass’s depictions are both detailed and sug-

gestive. Swirling, misty lines suggest shape and motion, and then converge to form the detail of a face. The angels are gigantic, beautiful and powerful-looking; the humans are small, many and undistinguished. There’s no telling who, in life, might have been a CEO or Orioles slugger or newspaper reporter or panhandler who stood on the median of President St. They all tend to be either covering their faces with their hands or reaching out to the heavenly beings as a toddler to a parent. The exhibit—and most of Pass’s work— tends to focus on the positive implications of his vision. Said Pete Townshend: “It gives me faith that the acceptance of unsolicited faith through artistic function can—apparently—come with so few fundamentalist strings attached.” Indeed, benevolence seems to be the hallmark of Pass’s depictions. Darkness, however, is not wholly absent. Pass mentioned that he saw “winged shapes” on the horizon that were dark and possibly “threatening,” though he admitted that their purpose remained unclear to him.

It gives me faith that  the acceptance of  unsolicited faith through  artistic function can – apparently – come with  so few fundamentalist  strings attached. In his 2000 piece entitled “Division of Souls,” a crowd bathed in light is being funneled one way while a darker group is taken in another direction. “I see what’s going on here,” thinks anyone who has been to church once or twice. However, there’s something in Pass’s work that discourages definitive conclusions. Maybe it comes from the fact that—ostensibly at least—his pieces depict something he actually witnessed and experienced, rather than what he simply believed or felt compelled to believe. “I heard about his vision in the churchyard, and I found it easy to believe that the scenes depicted in his paintings came from a real experience,” writes Rich Shapero, an author, musician and collector who collaborated with AVAM for the exhibit. “They are that vivid—that impactful.” Visitors to the exhibit receive a free copy of Shapero’s novel, “The Hope We Seek,” for which the exhibit was named, as well as a CD of Shapero’s music, “Songs from the Big Wheel,” with vocals by Marissa Nadler. Both are accompanied by Pass’s artwork. Nick Prevas, director of communications for AVAM, lauded Shapero for his commitment to maintaining public access to art, a trait not shared by all private collectors. “He photographs all the work and makes it available for all to see,” said Prevas. “He believes in open-source—free. We appreciate it of course.” Opened in 1995, AVAM is a three-building museum on 1.1 acres that showcases the works of unconventional, untrained and, in some cases, unintentional artists. “We’re not expecting somebody to make art that’s predictable in some sense,” said Prevas.

Russian comedies from 150 years ago elicit modern BY ERIK ZYGMONT

EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

“4 by Chekhov,” a quartet of short, one-act plays showing through Sunday, April 6, brings timeless comedy to the Fell’s Point Corner Theatre. The generic “married man” is both the butt of most of the jokes and the target audience who will find the most humor in Russian writer Anton Chekhov’s not-oppressivelydark sketches of domestic life, translated by Paul Schmidt and directed by Howard Berkowitz. Chekhov was a playwright in 17th Century Russia, but his tales have no age. “Don’t ask questions; don’t ask for any details,” implores the disheveled Tolkachov as he bursts into the home of his female friend, Murashkina, in “The Reluctant Tragic Hero.” “Just be a friend and give me a gun!” It turns out that the domestic demands put on Tolkachov by his wife—who we never

see—are simply too much when added on top of the slack he picks up at his business thanks to an incompetent staff (who show up hungover and exhausted from frivolous nightlife commitments including amateur theatre). Layer on that that the poor man must then undertake all manner of tedious, time-consuming “errands,” including going to the dress shop and telling the tailor “in no uncertain terms that the blouse is too big, except for the shoulders, which are too small,” and Tolkachov nearly acts on that desire that sometimes tugs at family men, to go out into the middle of woods for awhile, hence the need for a gun. His true intentions for the weapon, however, are not fully revealed. At one point, the protagonist laments that he is a man “without the brains to blow his brains out.” Ishai Barnoy energetically portrays Tolkachov as a man overcome by nerves and on the verge of cracking, who nevertheless

carries on. Barnoy’s performance is excellent; his facial expressions, the register of his voice, and his physical acting style create a whiny yet lovable character with whom most can empathize. Tolkachov proclaims that suffering is understandable when it’s for ideals and principals. “But to suffer for ladies dresses and lightbulbs?! No! No. A thousand times, no.” Alisa Padon plays his female friend and confidant with aplomb, inserting expressive and understated gestures and facial expression during Tolkachov’s monopolization of the conversation. Also impressive is Valerie Dowdle, who plays servant girl Luka in “The Bear.” Her simple, extremely well-delivered line at the end of the last play is the perfect cap to the four comedies. In “The Dangers of Tobacco,” Mike Zemarel plays a man lecturing an audience on the bidding of his wife. Initially nervous

laughs Just be a  friend and give me a gun!

like Porky Pig reciting “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere,” Zemarel’s character moves through stages of anger, outright fear, and finally defeat. He mentions tobacco little. One theme running through the four plays is that while life may be hell for the characters, it’s hilarious to the audience. At last Saturday’s showing, the audience laughed audibly throughout the play. While last month’s “Tales of Ordinary Madness,” also at the Fell’s Point Corner Theatre, was billed as a “Seinfeld” in Prague, “4 by Chekhov” calls to mind the sitcom, too. We see what would’ve happened had George actually married Susan. “4 by Chekhov” plays on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at the Fell’s Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St. For more information, visit fpct.org.

LIQUOR: Councilman says stores are changing their zoning CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

ask the councilman himself to support the phaseout. Snidal has said that though there are few nonconforming liquor stores in the 1st District (there are three), Kraft’s support is critical for getting the liquor phaseout through City Council. Kraft noted that the zoning rewrite contains much more than that. “This stuff that we’re talking about is like two pages in this bill,” he said. “We’re probably gong to get to that sometime this summer.” Kraft said that he didn’t expect the City Council to make a decision on the rewrite— which will be full of amendments—until “sometime into next year.” He said that given that delay, he had spoken to both the Health Department and Code Enforcement. “We said, ‘You all know that, regardless of what we do, it will not happen until sometime in 2015—in the meantime, why don’t you go out and crack down on these guys?’” Kraft said.

“I don’t know why, and I’m not going to point a finger to anybody, but it’s just not happening.” Kraft said that the agencies that would be responsible for enforcing a zoning-driven liquor phaseout are currently strapped. “We [in Southeast Baltimore] call for code enforcement more than anybody; we call for zoning enforcement more than anybody,” he said. “We don’t get it. There aren’t enough inspectors.” “The zoning administrator can’t handle what the zoning administrator has to handle today,” he added. Kraft acknowledged that the zoning rewrite’s liquor portion “is a separate tool.” The councilman added that it will “make a difference” when all the nonconforming liquor stores are gone. But in the meantime, he added, such stores are changing their zoning. “What sense does it make to write a law to accomplish this when everyone is just going to go out and rezone the property?” Kraft said.

PIER: Community support needed to convince mayor on Promenade CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3

So, Kraft said, the community groups in the area need to notify the city that they support the project and explicitly support a compromise on the Promenade in this case. With that support, he added, “I will go back to the mayor and say, ‘I think you need to put the Promenade issue to bed.” “I don’t know if that’s going to turn it, but it’s going to turn it as far as we’re concerned,” the councilman said. “The [Promenade] requirement started in the community anyway.” The Sagamore Development Company now has the support of two community organizations—Fell’s Point Main Street and the Fell’s Point Residents Association—for its proposal. The developers sought the support of a third, the Fell’s Point Community Organization, last night, after press time. Mike Maraziti, president of Fell’s Point Main Street, urged the community to support the proposal. “That’s the last piece of this entire neighborhood that needs to be worked on,” he said. “It’s going to look a lot better than people sleeping on those steps and rodents running around.”

We’re talking years of modification and delay before we even start planning.

BALTIMORE GUIDE 17

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 2014

BIRDS HOUSE Hey – We’re actually looking  pretty good Don’t look now, but the O’s are 8-2 in Spring Training games and have been looking pretty impressive. Okay, so I know it’s only Spring Training, but after the winter we’ve had and the Ravens season ending earlier than we all had hoped, it’s a nice sight to see, no matter how unimportant some of these games might be. One player who has gotten off to a hot start—and needs to continue to be hot the whole year—is Nick Markakis. So far, Markakis is batting .667 with four doubles in 16 at-bats. One area he failed in last year was extra base hits, and so far this spring, he has a slugging percentage of 1.000. Chris Davis is out to prove that his 2013 season was no fluke, and so far he is making us all believers. This spring, Davis is batting .533 with two home runs and seven runs batted in, right on the heels of his 53 HR season. One other offensive bright spot is Jonathan Schoop. The 22-year-old second baseman is also batting .533 with a home run and four RBI. It would seem he might be in the mix to start at second base with Brian Roberts, now in New York. On the other side of the ball, lefty Zach

Britton has been pitching well as he shoots for a spot in the rotation. So far in six innings of work, Britton is sporting a 1.50 earned run average with five strikeouts against only two walks. Starting his first full season with the O’s, Bud Norris has yet to allow a run in five innings and has struck out six batters and walked only one while allowing only three hits. Newly acquired Ubaldo Jimenez was outstanding in his first bit of work with Baltimore. Jimenez struck out three and walked none in two innings without allowing a hit. This year is going to be tough, perhaps tougher than the past few seasons. The reigning World Series Champion Boston Red Sox are looking tough as usual; the New York Yankees have rebuilt their team after their offseason spending spree; the Tampa Bay Rays are always strong; and the Toronto Blue Jays are no pushovers. As usual, the Orioles will need contributions from everyone to have a shot at making the playoffs this year, but one noticeable difference this year is that they seem to have the pieces of the puzzle to make it happen.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 2014

Just two robberies reported in Southeast District March 2-8

ROBBERY

Eastern Ave.,  6300 block, March 2, 10:50 a.m. Police were met by a loss prevention employee who said that he was watching security cameras and saw the suspects, two women and a man, picking up items off the shelf and walking out without paying for them. The employee confronted the suspects and attempted to detain them. One of the females then maced him in the face, and the suspects fled in a white Saturn station wagon. O’Donnell St., 4800 block, March 5, 4:31 a.m. The victim said that the suspect entered the store wiht a mask on and was talking on a cell phone while walking around inside. The suspect then approached the register holding a white bag containing what the victim believed to be a gun. He stated, “Open the damn register or I’ll blow you away.” The victim complied, handing the suspect money and cigarettes. The suspect fled. NOTE: If we cannot obtain the police log in time for print, we will post it to baltimoreguide.com as soon as we have it.

BURGLARY

N. Bond St., 100 block, March 2, 2:35 p.m. The property manager reported that she saw several juveniles exiting the vacant. She said that she believed that the juveniles lived at another property she manages. An officer visited that property, and the juvenile’s mother said that they had been at home eating with her at the time of the incident. S.  Lehigh  St.,  500 block, March 3, 2:40 a.m. Unknown suspect(s) gained entry to the bar via the rear window and entered the storage area. They were then able to push the door and break locks to get into the rest of the bar area. The suspect removed two security cameras, took a key for the safe from the counter area, and took $1,800 and a handgun from the safe. S. Decker Ave., unit block, March 3, 10 a.m. The victim said that an unknown person forced open the rear door and removed copper pipe from the location. S. Spring Ct., 200 block, March 4, 6 a.m. The victim came home to find that

someone had broken her front window and made entry. A spare house key and money order were taken. E. Baltimore St., 1200 block, March 4, 11 a.m. The victim said that the unknown suspect gained entry via an unsecured door, pried open a storage room door, and drank liquor. When asked, the suspect stated that someone had given him permission to be there. He fled before police arrived. S.  East  Ave., 200 block, March 4, 10:09 p.m. The reporting officer responded to an alarm call, and observed the front door open and the basement window pried open, and a security bar for the window pushed away. Officers cleared the house and found no suspects inside. Officers spoke to the owner through the alarm company. The owner statd he was out of town and would not be able to inventory missing property until the next day. Officers reported that nothing looked out of place. Bonsal St., 1400 block, March 5, 8:45 a.m. Unknown suspects pried open the

Obituary

front door and took tools from the house. A neighbor said she saw two men banging on the door, but didn’t see them enter. The victim reported that she had a carpet installation company come to her house, and the employees matched the neighbor’s description. E. Baltimore St., 1200 block, March 6, 9 a.m. The victim said that someone used an unknown tool to try to get inside, but only succeeded in damaging the front door. O’Donnell St., 3400 block, March 7, 9 a.m. The victim returned to find the basement window and door ajar. She discovered her bedroom ransacked and unspecified property missing. Broening  Hwy.,  2000 block, March 8, 5 p.m. Three seperate businesses reported burglary activity. One reported that entry was attempted but not gained; two reported that their trailer doors had been forced open and property had been taken. For the full police log, please visit
