Cycling has become very popular in the city, thanks to events like the Tour du Port. Photo by Anna Santana

Those who pedal to work, to the store or just around the neighborhood may not know it, but come next week, they’ll be part of a statistic. Baltimore City, in evaluating its bicyclefriendliness and its need for more or improved bicycle facilities, conducts a manual “bike count” three to four times a year. The next will take place May 10-12. According to the last bike census, more people are pedaling. From September 2009 to September 2010, Baltimore saw a 35% increase in bicycle commuter traffic. A way of cutting down on gas expenses? A method of avoiding parking hassles? A strike at being physically fit or eco-friendly? The ‘why’ more people are cycling doesn’t actually matter. What matters is ‘that’ more people are cycling. And, says Nate Evans, bicycle and pedestrian planner with the Baltimore Department of Transportation, that means CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Enoch Pratt Free Library director Carla Hayden joined Rob Santoni and health department officials in announcing the Virtual Supermarket program last spring. Since then the program has expanded to three library branches and several schools.

There have been bailouts for automakers and help given to first-time home buyers. Now it’s the grocers who are asking for some help. In this case, though, it’s for help creating grocery stores in low-income areas that lack decent food stores, or at least not affordable food stores. Healthy Food Financing Initiatives (HFFI) were established in the most recent federal budget as a means to combat the phenomenon known as ‘food deserts.’ Food deserts are areas not currently served by grocery stores, and they create an unhealthy cycle among those who live CONTINUED ON PAGE 18

Ruining a scammer’s season Elderly can avoid rip-offs by MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@baltimoreguide.com

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Scammers? Don’t let them in. Police are asking seniors to be wary of scam artists. Scammers have been found in several areas recently, including the Southern District. Two scams have been reported in local neighborhoods: Social Security Scam: An elderly area resident received a phone call from someone who claimed to be with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The caller claimed that Social Security benefits had been overpaid to that address since 2008, and that the person in the house owed over $3,000 and would not be given benefits again until a refund was paid to SSA. The resident was told to come to Aberdeen to pay the bill. When the resident, noted that transportation to Aberdeen was not available, the caller stated that a courier could be sent to the residence, and that one would be present shortly. Shortly thereafter, a suspect described

as a white male with a protruding stomach and dark brown hair arrived, and did not say a word, waiting until the elderly resident handed him more than $1,000 cash in an envelope. He then left, and the resident called SSA about the situation, only to find out about the fraud. Shortly thereafter, the resident received another anonymous call from “SSA,” still demanding money, but the resident told the caller not to call again. The incident was reported to police. SSA employees will not call residents and demand money, and do not ask for or accept cash payments for any reason. Residents are asked to contact 911 immediately if someone tries to get them to pay money or turn over personal information for any reason. BGE/Utilities Scam: Some scammers are posing as workers at BGE or competiting energy companies. A local resident was approached by a suspect who knocked at the door and was allowed inside. The suspect was described as a thin-built white man, clean-shaven, who asked the resident to produce a recent CONTINUED ON PAGE 20

Last Wednesday was 31 Cent Scoop Night at Baskin Robbins Ice Cream, with all ice cream priced at just just (you guessed it) 31 cents a scoop. The event was a benefit for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), and plenty of the crew members were on hand to help scoop out treats and and greet the community. The Baskin Robbins in Canton saw lots of action, and great weather allowed visitors to sit outside as well. The Baskin Robbins Community Foundation assisted with the effort by contributing $100,000 to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Didn’t get a chance to help out?

Our Opinions and Yours

RE

AFSCME retirees thank Hammen Editor, The Guide: State retirees owe a debt of gratitude to Delegate Pete Hammen, who represents the 46th District. Without him, people like me would be facing dim prospects for being able to pay for my medicine. This is because the state budget, as it was introduced by Governor Martin O’Malley, included some major changes to the prescription insurance plan for retirees from

the State of Maryland. That’s why the AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1 is honoring Delegate Hammen as our “Legislator of the Year” for 2011. The plan introduced by the governor included a huge deductible, and a requirement that we pay a quarter of the total costs of each of our prescriptions. Since many seniors rely on prescriptions costing hundreds of dollars, this would have put our medicine out of reach. Our pension checks are only $940 a month on average. Delegate Hammen understood this problem. He took action immediately by meeting with representatives from the governor’s Budget Department, and then engaging in tough negotiations with the state Senate. Now, thanks to his help, we will not have to pay 25%, but instead much more reasonable co-pays, and there will be no deductible. A state pension is a lifeline for tens of thousands of retired state employees, not just because of our pensions, but because of the access to health insurance that retirees have earned after decades of service to Marylanders. We worked hard for these benefits. It would have been unfair to take them away. Thank you Delegate Hammen for looking out for retirees. Ida Ward President AFSCME Retiree Chapter 1

An open letter to Parking Enforcement

To the Parking Enforcement officer who wrote me and another resident citations on the 2000 block of Gough St. for parking in the cross-hatched area of handicapped parking spots; there are NO handicapped parking spots on the 2000 block of Gough St. Now, if you are not familiar with how handicapped parking spots work on a street with side-by-side, back-in angle parking, let me tell you. In this situation, there would be TWO single parking spots between two signs which state “handicapped parking.” One spot is for the handicapped driver’s vehicle, and the other spot, which is cross-hatched, is to provide wheelchair access for said driver to the vehicle. Both my vehicle and another one, were parked in two separate cross-hatched spots about five parking spots apart. You wrote two citations. However, there were no handicapped parking signs. What is more, there are none on the 2000 block of Gough St. There were signs up until 2 or three months ago, when the holders of those permits surrendered both of them. The City then quickly came and removed the signs for both of the spots, as readily evidenced by the holes in the

sidewalk where the crews cut the sign posts to the sidewalk. Hence, the two former handicapped parking spots reverted back to four regular parking spots. What the City didn’t do was erase the cross-hatching from the two spots which formerly were the part of the handicapped parking spot used for wheelchair access. The cross-hatched spot where we parked are now both regular, valid parking spots. Is it wrong to assume that since you are PARKING Enforcement, you would be strongly familiar with the types of parking you are charged with enforcing? If you had looked around at the whole picture, you may (and I use that term liberally) have noticed that. Another time, you wrote me another such citation (which was dismissed), and I asked you why you didn’t look at the situation around my car and you told me “that’s not my job.” I’m sorry, I had no idea that when the City hired you, they told you specifically that you were not to use common sense. That’s just blatant, poor job performance. Do you know what your poor job performance costs? Let me give you an idea. When you write citations like this one, I have to take time out of work, which means I lose leave that I work hard to earn. My department then has to pay overtime to someone to fill my spot while I’m in court disputing this citation. The City then spends money to process the citation, enter it in the court system, and set me up with a hearing date. It then costs the City money to pay the time the judge spends hearing my case. When I show up with pictures illustrating how much you were not paying any attention to what you were doing, it costs the City for the court costs when the case is dismissed. Since the City has quite an interest lately in cost effectiveness, may I suggest that time would be immeasurably more effectively spent hearing legitimate cases? Multiply by the number of other people to whom you’ve written such citations, because I’m far from the only one, and you’ve done some real measurable damage to the taxpaying citizens the City depends on to continue living here so it can try to fill its deficit-blighted coffers. You have cost the citizens of this neighborhood time and money, and you’ve also cost the City money in citations that should never have been written if you had some common sense and had done a proper job. What is more, is that you have been doing this for at least the past five years in my neighborhood. Does no one hold you accountable? The judges have continually dismissed these ridiculous citations. We have called our City Council persons. We have made complaints to Parking Enforcement. Why do your supervisors not hold you accountable? Do you know what I do for a living? I am a public service, 911 paramedic. Do

you know what my job is? I put people on ECG monitors, and occasionally, I have to shock them. I also start IV’s on people and occasionally, I give some very strong drugs. Do you know what happens if I don’t pay attention? I could really do some damage and hurt someone. It’s a good thing that my Captain, and the Chief of my department hold me accountable for how I do my job. They didn’t issue me common sense when I got hired, but they certainly make sure I exercise it when I do my job. And do you know what? As a City resident as well as being a public servant, I am really glad that you don’t have my job. Chris Azevedo Baltimore

Not just surviving, but thriving Speaker discusses overcoming economic odds

by MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@baltimoreguide.com

Every employee in every business has had the economy thrown in his or her face as a reason the customer is not buying, not buying more, or just not spending, period. Maybe it’s time to look at it from another angle — that of the economy as a challenge to be met and overcome. Joe Bonura, CSP, author of three books on successful sales, will be making a presentation on “Thriving on the Challenge of a Slow Economy.” The presentation, scheduled for Thursday, May 12 in Canton, is free and open to the public. Bonura is the author of “Throw the Rabbit: The Ultimate Approach to Three-Dimensional Selling,” and has recorded professional training CDs on “Throw the Rabbit and Make That Sale” and “Throw the Rabbit and Keep That Customer.” The seminar will be held at Canton Dockside, 3301 Boston Street. A continental breakfast is served from 7 a.m.7:30 a.m., and the seminar runs from

We’re expecting a great turnout and we hope Baltimore benefits from this presentation.” Seating at the presentation is limited, and those interested are asked to RSVP by May 5.

THE BALTIMORE GUIDE 7

Lunchin’, brunchin’ and munchin’ with the bobbleheads Giving the nod to Canton Dockside’s seafood BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

It was a little chilly to sit outside on the crab deck when we visited Canton Dockside, down by the water and the First Mariner Tower, so we sat inside. It’s a large dining room that is a cross between supper club and sports bar, with murals of Baltimore scenes like Fort McHenry and Johns Hopkins Hospital, an impressive display of bobblehead dolls and six television screens tuned to every possible permutation of ESPN and FoxSports. The color scheme is earth, the lighting fixtures are Jetsons-esque, and just about everyone has a good view of the open kitchen at the south end of the room. It’s very pleasant and comfortable. There is a long bar on the east end of the room, separated from the diners by a low wall. Judging from the bottles behind the bar you can name your cocktail and they can make it. We could definitely see ourselves sitting at the bar with a cold beer and a couple of orders of wings or crab balls. Alas, it was lunch and we had to go back to work, so we did not challenge the barkeep. Instead, we tried the seafood club sandwich ($12), and the steak salad ($11.95). The seafood club was served on toasted white sandwich bread, and was a thin slice of grilled salmon topped with several Old-Bay laced plump large shrimp.

A couple of slices of bacon, and lettuce and tomato on the side, completed the tasty sandwich. The fries on the side were crisp but soft inside, and nicely seasoned. You can also order fruit or greens on the side. The flat-iron steak was grilled rare, as requested, and sliced thin over mixed greens with grape tomatoes and sliced cucumbers. The blue-cheese dressing was good and sharp and generously served. While Canton Dockside specializes in seafood, as its name suggests, it has the full Baltimore restaurant menu—bar snacks and starters like crab pretzels, crab balls and buffalo wings; cheesesteaks, melts and club sandwiches; burgers topped with everything from grilled onions, hot peppers, blue cheese or marinara sauce; and a full array of entrees, including steaks, finfish, Chicken Chesapeake, ribs and of course crabcakes. UNIQUE MASCOT-A gator and a steamed crab are among the ecletic decor at There is a low-priced kids’ menu that Canton Dockside. (There is also a rather impressive collection of bobbleheads will satisfy all but the most picky of lining the upper shelves). Hours of operation are Sundays through Thursdays CONTINUED ON PAGE 20

oles finishing in last place, as I believe that honor will fall to the Blue Jays. Just my two cents…. Zach Britton is making quite a name for himself this year. The rookie left hander is tied for second in the league with five wins, and his ERA of 2.63 ranks him in the top 15 in the AL. Not too shabby for a youngster, or even an established player for that matter! There was a reason the Baltimore Guide named Britton their player of the month! Stop the presses! Derrek Lee finally got his first hit of the season with a runner in scoring position! Welcome to the club Derrek, it’s called ‘Everyone Else’. It’s official. Luke Scott has caught fire. This week saw Scott hit three home runs and drive in six runs as he hit .389. I swear I have never seen a streakier player than Scott, and now

Those Orioles really know how to take the socks to the cleaners! (Oh, come on. you were thinking of some corny sock joke too after this week.) After a rough last week, the Baltimore Orioles finally got back in the swing of things as they took two of three games from the Boston Red Sox and then took three of four from the Chicago White Sox. Baltimore heads to Kansas City to face the Royals (Yes, they still have a team) before heading home to face the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend. Currently, the Orioles are sitting with a 13-14 record, smack dab in the middle of the American League East, 4.5 games back of the New York Yankees. It is tight in the AL East however, as only a half-game separates the O’s from the two teams below them, the Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays. Personally, I don’t see the Ori-

that he’s heating up, I won’t complain until he gets cold again. Speaking of hot, Robert Andino continues to impress at shortstop. On the season, Andino is hitting .314. Not bad when your nine hitter is hitting over .300. Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie took the loss on Monday, as he surrendered four earned runs in the loss, thus raising his ERA to 3.00. You know things are going well then your ERA gets raised to 3.00. Keep up the good work Guthrie! Note to the offense: Try hitting the ball before Guthrie takes you to court for non-support. Kevin Gregg earned his paycheck this week, throwing three scoreless innings and converting all three save opportunities. Gregg got off to a slow start, but considering how little he was being used, it’s good to see him get in there and show us what he can do. Remember when I said how it was a good thing for Guthrie that his ERA was raised to 3.00? Well Mike Gonzalez lowered his ERA to 9.82. That’s so not Guthrie. And yes, Justin Duchscherer is still on the disabled list. He’s the front- Luke Scott has caught the fire and is runner right now for the Glenn Davis burning up the bat this season.

Liquor board hears many protests, hands down two suspensions by JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

The Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City finished up its work last week on neighborhood challenges to liquor licenses. It handed down a couple of long suspensions, but renewed all of the licenses challenged. “We heard the most protests of renewal ever filed,” said Steve Fogleman, chairman of the liquor board. Neighbors and property owners within a one-block radius of a bar can protest the renewal of its license once a year by circulating a petition, getting at least ten signatures and presenting the petition to the liquor board. The board holds hearings and considers the challenges in April of every year, and decisions are due by April 30. All liquor licenses in the city run from May 1-April 30. “The liquor board can do three things about a protest of renewal,” explained Fogleman. “One, we can renew the license. Two, we can suspend the license. Three, we can fail to renew. We can fine them as well.” Fogleman said that failing to renew is a last resort for “very limited occasions,” generally when a licensee has been given many opportunities to clean up his bar’s

act and failed. He said that failure to renew was a “death sentence” for a bar, and a step that the liquor board does not take lightly. “We are very sensitive to the fact that this is someone’s living,” he said. On the other hand, the liquor board understands the neighbors’ right to live in peace and occasional quiet. “Most business owners understand the balance,” said Fogleman. “Some don’t. They’re the ones who come before the board again and again.” The liquor board handed down 30-day suspensions to two bars: Tabrizi’s, which operates the Tiki Lounge, a floating barge on the river near Harborview in South Baltimore; and Rancho Manila, a bar in the 1700 block E. Lombard Street that has recently been the venue for fights, stabbings and a shooting. Tabrizi’s will serve its suspension in July, which is prime time for floating beer barges. Fogleman said that the licensee had not been entirely honest with the liquor board when applying for the license extension for the barge, and that was one of the factors in the decision to suspend. Rancho Manila will start its suspension June 1.

The victim, a Hispanic man who police have not yet been able to identify, had been beaten and stabbed several times, and he had been stomped in the face. Paramedics pronounced the victim dead at the scene. Police did not connect the crime to the bar, but neighbors say that the violence on the block started around the first of the year, when a different clientele began CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

Matthew Malaquias, who spoke for the neighborhood during the Rancho Manila hearing, said the neighborhood is grateful for the suspension. “We are hoping for some relief,” he said. The violence in the block has escalated, however. Police responded to a call at 6:40 a.m. Friday, April 29, across the street from the bar and found a man lying in a pool of blood and partly under a parked car.

that means the city can consider expanding its current bicycle offerings in order to hold more events and programs designed to coax riders outside. Already, he adds, opportunities abound. “Most city parks are accessible by bike,” says Evans. “Recreation and Parks hosts ‘Ride Around the Reservoir’ at Druid Hill Park where bikes are loaned

for anyone to casually ride around Druid Lake. Patterson Park now has a designated bike route connecting Highlandtown and Butchers Hill. The Gwynns Falls Trail connects Middle Branch Park, Carroll Park, Leon Day Park, Gwynns Falls and Leakin Park.” May has been designated “Baltimore Bike Month.” The Baltimore Bike

Cyclists raced at BikeJam. The event also includes recreational rides. May is Bike Month in Baltimore, with many activities planned, including BikeJam, which will be held May 28. Photo by Richard Anderson

Month Challenge offers the chance to “ride for the prize” by completing various bike-themed activities (commuting to work by cycle, spreading the word about special activities for Baltimore Bike Month, etc.). Prizes offered include gift certificates, professional bicycle maintenance services, cycling clothing and more. A full schedule of activities for Bike Month, as well as information on the challenge, can be found at www. bmorebikemonth.com. Other local activities are bikethemed, and offer non-riders the chance to become active, or just support those who are. At next Saturday’s Kinetic Sculpture race, for example, most, if not all, vehicles started out as bicycles or at the very least, incorporate bicycle parts. (In addition, spectators can avoid all the parking hassles by taking their bicycle instead of their car as they follow the action). Statewide “Bike To Work Day” is Friday, May 20. Information can be found at bikemd.org, which is the website for Bike Maryland (the organization formerly known as One Less Car). BikeJam, to be held in Patterson Park on Saturday, May 28, is an allday celebration of all things twowheeled. In addition to the races, the schedule includes recreational rides, a bike rodeo for kids, stunt demonstrations, vendors and more. Information on that event is available at www. bikejam.org. For those who can’t make any of those activities, the city still has much

to offer, says Evans, who notes there are 77 miles of bike routes with an additional 39 miles of off-road trails. Baltimore has installed over 300 bike racks over the past three years, including 37 racks within the last month. Many streets already have marked bicycle lanes. “The streets determined for bike improvements are based on the 2006 Bicycle Master Plan with input from neighborhoods and the cycling community,” says Evans. The Bicycle Master Plan is available on the city’s website at www.baltimorecity.gov (type Bicycle into the search box and the Bicycle Master Plan will be at the top of the list of results). “To encourage bike use, the city continues to expand the bicycle infrastructure with the completion of the Southeast and Park Heights Bike Networks,” Evans says. “The Guilford Avenue Bike Boulevard project will begin construction this summer, providing a shared roadway between University Parkway and Mt. Royal Avenue.” According to Evans, in 2010, the city produced a bicycle map highlighting bike-able routes and information on safe cycling, securing a bike and using the bus racks. (That also is available on the city’s website, and can be accessed the same way as the Bicycle Master Plan). And for those who find themselves in need of a new ride, local bicycle merchants are ready with new models, new apparel, lots of tips and most importantly, helmets.

bers, attended a meeting at the White House last month with Obama’s domestic policy staff to discuss current programs available for HFFI projects, and ways to improve these programs and grow participation locally and nationally. The group also met with the federal departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, and Treasury to discuss projects currently taking place around the country. An example is the Baltimore-based Virtual Supermarket project, a partnership between Baltimore City’s Health Department, the Enoch Pratt Free Library and Santoni’s Supermarket that delivers groceries to residents of food deserts. The program allows residents to order groceries online at library branches and schools, and then pick up the groceries the next day. Santoni’s fills the orders and delivers the groceries. Coming soon will be a way to use food stamps online through the Virtual Supermarket program; however, the technology still needs to be tweaked. (Look for it to take hold eventually, though, says Santoni).

there. Families, whose budgets are already tight, do not have the transportation to get to a grocery store in a more well-to-do area of the city, and therefore, rely on corner stores or convenience stores, where supplies are limited and prices are higher than those in a supermarket. “You can’t criticize families for making the choices they have,â€? says Robert Santoni, Jr. of Santoni’s Market. “Sometimes the easiest and most convenient way to feed kids is just not the healthiest.â€? Grocers, therefore, are trying to raise awareness that healthy food initiatives— which President Barack Obama’s administration endorses—need to start with an investment in local grocers who can put stores into food deserts. The grocers are seeking access to budget dollars to assist with building and opening stores in affected areas. Placing stores in food deserts would mean not only access to healthy foods, but an inux of jobs for those in the area. Santoni, along with other National Grocer’s Association (NGA) mem-

Prices are reasonable, and while the restaurant tacks an 18-percent tip on every meal, it’s up front about it, stamping each check in red ink, so you can’t possibly double-tip unless you

are seriously not paying attention. The deck, on the west side of the building on the water, is very tempting, even when the temperature is stuck in the 50s. We’ll be back to try the crabs which are, incidentally, available year-round. Canton Dockside also offers good old Baltimore steamed shrimp by the pound. Lunch for two came to $41.73 including tip. Canton Dockside is open SundaysThursdays, 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Happy hour is 4-6 p.m. daily.

utilities bill. At that time, the suspect took down the victim’s phone number and account information. Shortly thereafter, the victim received a phone call from a “Mrs. Joiner” who said the resident was several thousand dollars past due in utilities payments, and at risk of having power cut off to the house. The man who had come to the house the first time then returned and collected about $1,000 cash, then left. Another call from “Mrs. Joiner” followed, stating the account was still short, and $900 more was owed. The resident paid this as well to the same man. The resident then called police and said despite being aware of the fact that the bill was already paid and that the situation seemed odd, the resident was afraid of having services cut off and had therefore paid twice. Police are warning all consumers to be wary of door-to-door scammers. Power and utility company representatives will not come to the door and ask for money, nor will they ask to see your billing statement. If someone does approach them, residents are asked to call 911 to report someone trying to scam them. Under no circumstances should they ever let the person into their house. If the person is rude or insistent, it should be an-

other red flag to contact police. Such incidents are investigated by the Checks and Fraud Unit of the Baltimore Police Department. Other scams reported over the years include suspects posing as insurance company representatives or adjusters, police, fire, water department, meter readers and more. Sometimes, scammers steal money, personal information and property while the resident is distracted and sometimes, they collect on fictional debts. In all cases, a call to police -- and the use of caution -- can stop them.

Hearing on water rate hike

The Board of Estimates will host a public hearing on Wednesday, May 18 at 9 a.m. at the Board meeting at City Hall to review a recommended increase of 9% for water/sewer rates and fees for Baltimore City customers. This rate increase, if approved by the Board of Estimates, will raise the annual water and sewer bill for a family of four by approximately $88.

THE BALTIMORE GUIDE 21

There’s no expiration date on this rocker

Neil Young didn’t disappoint when he performed at the Hippodrome

BY MARIA ELENA PECORA SPECIAL TO THE BALTIMORE GUIDE Neil Young performed a two-night set of his Twisted Road tour at the Hippodrome Theatre on April 27-28. Bert Jansch, a Scottish musician who has long been an influence to Young, performed

as the opening act for both nights. With a career spanning just over five decades, Neil has the tour thing down pat. His first tour was with Crazy Horse in 1969 and a year later he commenced the Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young tour. However, his stint

with Crazy Horse and CSNY were both short-lived due to artistic and personal differences within the bands. But, it was clear from the nearly soldout audience on Saturday that his fans have not wavered in their support. His stage set up was simple: a totem pole and a baby grand piano to his right, a pipe organ in the background, and a larger piano to his left. Perhaps his stage set up mirrored what his songs have always been about; candor, straightforwardness, and performing the music the way it was meant to be: in a small, intimate setting in a theatre with fabulous acoustics. He opened with three of his biggest singles: “Hey Hey My My (Into the Black),” “Tell Me Why,” and “Helpless.” Accompanying himself on the harmonica and acoustic guitar, Young delivered. As the night progressed, Young did away with his acoustic guitar and picked up his electric guitar and continued to perform a stagerattling set of songs off of his latest album, “Le Noise.” Nonchalantly, he roamed around the stage deciding on what he should play next. The audience tried to help him; people chanted “Old Man” and “Heart of Gold,” two of his most re-

spected and most loved songs. But Neil didn’t listen; he played what he wanted and he played what he wanted us to hear. “Ohio” about the Kent State shootings of 1970 still seems relevant to this day and seems to be the perfect preface to his track he won his first Grammy for, “Angry World”. Many believe that his music is timeless; having no expiration date. If his performances at the Hippodrome is any indication his future, Neil Young is here to stay.

drinking at Rancho Manila. The neighbors are hiring a lawyer and will work with the Community Law Center to draft an operating agreement with the bar. “We are not really open to starting a conversation until [a lawyer is hired],” said Malaquias. The liquor board renewed the license of The Point in Fells after negotiations opened with the Fells Point Residents Association. Cliff Ransom, who spoke for his neighbors at the hearing on April

21, said that he did not know if the agreement had yet been signed by the owners and landlord of the bar. “It’s the same as it was,” he said. “Nothing has changed so far.” The liquor board also renewed the licenses of several Federal Hill bars after their owners agreed to negotiate with their neighbors, who had been complaining of trash, noise, unsanitary behavior and fighting among their youthful clientele.
