Outta Here! The End of the World could seriously wreck your weekend plans BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Maybe you have seen the billboards. They are all over town, and they predict that the end of the world will come Saturday, that the Chosen will be lifted to Heaven in a Rapture. The rest of us will be left to struggle on till October 21, when God in his wrath will utterly destroy the universe. So—have you got any plans for the weekend? Saturday is Preakness Day, after all, and if Christian radio broadcaster and selftaught Bible scholar Harold Camping is correct, the Rapture will occur at noon, which will hardly allow enough time for the beery throng in the infield to get a decent load on. The Rapture would be a serious buzz

kill not only for the infield folk, but for the Maryland Jockey Club, which depends on revenues from Preakness Day to stay in the black. On the other hand, Camping, who is 89, and his followers believe that only 200 million people, or about three percent of the population of the Earth, will be taken up in the rapture—so that would mean a loss of only roughly 3,300 of the Preakness’ pro-

jected crowd of 110,000. And that’s only if God considers horseplayers, politicians, attorneys, glad-handing stockbrokers, bankers, car salesmen and beer pong players, to say nothing of Preakness-pitching centaurs, among the Chosen. Camping, who used a complex meld of numerology and Biblical analysis to come CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Youth baseball returns to Patterson Park BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

These days, the words “Game on!” have more meaning than they used to. Between 2006 and 2007, the Highlandtown Little League organization shut its doors, the victim of declining enrollment and budget woes. And that, said City Councilman Jim Kraft (D-1), left a big hole in the fabric of the community. “I played CYO sports growing up, and I coached CYO sports, and I really thought Councilman Jim Kraft (D-First) played we should get baseball going for these little baseball as a boy, and wanted to “get kids again.” baseball going for these little kids Kraft had other initiatives planned for again.” Photo by Jim Landerkin

children, including a recycling awareness contest and an “If I were the mayor� essay competition, “but the most challenging by far was baseball, in terms of being able to find coaches, field the teams, get the money and put it all together.� Kraft met with officials at Baltimore City Schools, and Recreation and Parks, and was able to secure permission to recruit and fields to play on within Patterson Park. The yield was the Southeast Schools Baseball League, an independent organization made up of six co-ed teams, each representing a different area school. According to league commissioner Meghan Gorman, teams are the Guilford Owls, Highlandtown Dolphins (from Highlandtown Elementary/Middle School no. 215), Hampstead Hill Hornets, Holabird Academy Dolphins (from Holabird Elementary), Patterson Park Public Charter School Defenders and Graceland Park/ O’Donnell Heights Lions. “Some of the schools, like Guilford, were a little out of our area, but what can you say to kids who want to play ball?� asked Gorman, laughing. Each team has 15 children, and is made up of third and fourth graders. “Some day, we’d like to be able to

have sixth, seventh and eighth grade teams too,� said Gorman. Games are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, allowing children to have something constructive to do in the after-school hours. “The kids overall seem to be having a really good time,� said Gorman. “That’s what’s really important.� According to Kraft, many community members helped the league become a reality. “We had tremendous support from the Baltimore Sport and Social Club,� he noted. The organization provided a jersey and cap for each child. Other community members stepped up to help act as umpires, coaches and managers for teams. The club is seeking donations of equipment from the community, including baseballs, gloves and bats (as well as any other miscellaneous equipment the community could donate). Monetary donations are also welcome, and all those who donate will be listed as sponsors. The league’s website, www.seschoolsbaseball.blogspot.com, contains contact information for making donations, as well as a schedule of games, directions to fields and league standings.

also wanted the position. This, of course, led to all manner of challenges. A $1,000 reward was being offered to anyone who could arrange a debate. Since Scaefer had turned down 27 debate invites at the time of publication, it was a sure bet the money wasn’t going anywhere. And as the state never saw a Governor Sachs, neither was the challenger’s campaign. Censorship, schmensorship: Baltimore City officials had ordered the publisher of an advertising tabloid for X-rated videos to remove its newspaper boxes from city streets or face criminal prosecution. The owner of the tabloid, Dennis Sorbin, said he would not remover the boxes and called the city’s order unfair, illegal and discriminatory. (Editor’s note: The boxes appear to be gone, so it looks like Sorbin lost his mojo on that one). And if you were less into the hardcore stuff and more into hand-holding, volunteers were being sought in order to complete a mile-long segment in the Hands Across America program on Sunday, May 25 at 3 p.m.

mph which occurred near the legendary Bermuda Triangle. The schooner had been returning from a 15-month trip to Europe, and was due back to the U.S. in time for the celebration of the Statue of Liberty’s centennial in July. She had been in active use since February 1977. Arson was suspected in a six-alarm blaze that destroyed a nearly 70-footlong wood and metal pier in the rear of a Fells Point water property. The fire broke out near the vacant Terminal Warehouse, which had been scheduled to be part of a court-ordered sale after its owners, Bond Street Associates, did not make back payments on a defaulted loan. State records revealed the company was a joint venture of developer Michael Silver and two Old Court Savings and Loan associates: Old Court Joint Venture and Old Court Investment Group. William Donald Schaefer, leading the gubernatorial race by a margin of 2-1, announced his refusal to take part in candidate debates. The League of Women Voters had asked Schaefer to debate Attorney General Stephen Sachs, who

Editor, The Guide: I appreciate the opinion of Ms. Hall, who wrote to the Guide last week. I wanted to clarify my comments referenced in her letter. As some of you may know, I live in Canton with my wife and two-year old daughter about 100 feet from a bar. I personally understand the frustration that some neighbors experience on a regular basis: noise, litter and rowdy patrons at closing time. That having been said, the Liquor Board is supposed to be fair. As the three-member liquor board lives in various neighborhoods throughout the City, it is our second nature to try to preserve the quality of life to which we are accustomed. By and large, community association leaders have been pleased with our work over the last four years, particularly in Southeast Baltimore. The Liquor Board strives to be responsive to community concerns. I understand that my comment about businesses earning a living could be considered controversial when taken out of context. In context, I told the Guide that we must strike a balance between responsible businesses and protecting the neighbor’s right to quiet enjoyment. A bar owner might spend 30-50 hours per week in the neighborhood. A resident, by contrast, might spend all 168 hours of the week in the

neighborhood. We’re here, 24/7. We, the residents, are always here at closing time. We are here during St. Patrick’s Day, the Fells Point Festival, Ravens playoffs games, Halloween, New Year’s Eve, and any other time the region descends upon our neighborhoods to spontaneously celebrate. Our philosophy, as a Board, comes down to this: Businesses that treat their neighbors with respect are treated with respect by the Board. Businesses that summarily dismiss the community’s concerns will receive no such welcome from the Board. Ms. Hall specifically mentions Boston Street in her letter. We are proud of our record there, as we did revoke a license at the request of the community. Although we are not perfect, I believe that the Liquor Board does a good job working with only 15 full-time inspectors in a City with over 1,400 liquor licenses. I will also note that we serve the citizens of Baltimore without taking their taxes. We are a self-sustaining agency which derives all of its income from licensing fees and fines. In fact, we turn a small profit, often around $200,000, which is turned over to the City’s general fund annually. Once again, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to respond. Please feel free to contact me anytime at Stephan.Fogleman@BaltimoreCity.gov. STEPHAN FOGLEMAN CANTON

There are two distinct groups that go to the Preakness, and we’re not talking about horses and people. We’re talking about the infield crowd — and everyone else. The running of the 136th Preakness Stakes is Saturday, May 21, post-time 6:19 p.m. Infielders (whose alteredstate antics have been well-documented on YouTube) might not glimpse a horse, but they will see their own set of competitive events: a bikini contest, beer pong, beach volleyball and carnival games. Two years ago, when the B.Y.O. policy on alcohol was finally revoked, the Preakness saw a huge drop in infield attendance. The next year, an edgy new ad campaign, “Get Your Preak On,” brought back many (but not all) of the party types. This year, though, the Maryland Jockey Club is counting on a resurgence, thanks to a new ingredient: this year’s mascot, Kegasus. He’s half-horse, half-man, but 100 percent party animal and according to his official website, he’s “the son of Preaknesius—God of Thoroughbred Racing—and Shelly McDougal, a waitress from Ellicott City.” The campaign debuted in mid-March and was not without controversy. Many believed that the campaign took away from the true meaning of Preakness as the second leg of the historic Triple Crown Races. Others hold the opinion that Kegasus will end up attracting people to the Preakness for all the wrong reasons. Bloggers have voiced their opinions. “Maybe the Maryland Jockey Club knows more than I do about their fans, but targeting drunken, shirtless idiots for Preakness just seems wrong,” Zach Wilt of the Baltimore Sports Report said. Baltimore Sun writer Laura Vozzella agreed: “Leave it to an out-of-town ad agency to invent a mythological creature when

Baltimore has authentic, homegrown party animals better suited to promote boozing and betting in the Preakness infield.” The advertising agency that is responsible for Kegasus is Elevation Ltd, headquartered in Washington, D.C. Not surprisingly, Tom Chuckas, president of the Maryland Jockey Club, has defended the campaign. “Kegasus speaks directly to our InfieldFest demographic with his no-nonsense personality and total embodiment of a good time,” Chuckas says. “The demographic being 21 to 30-year-old college students and/or college grads.” David Blattner, a marketing major at the University of Baltimore, says he can see the logic of the initiative. “As a sort-of marketing major, I think Kegasus is one of the best mascots ever, a much better marketing campaign than Get Your Preak On,” Blattner says. “Part of the reason is because of how effective it is in catering to its target demographic audience. These people are way more interested in getting drunk in spring May weather during a Baltimore tradition than they are the race. I could care less about horses; it’s the party that makes me want to go.” The Maryland Jockey Club is amping up the party atmosphere at the InfieldFest with local celebrity Stacy Keibler as hostess and performances by Bruno Mars, Train and Hotspur on the main stage. Phil Vassar, Puddle of Mudd and Mr. Greengenes will perform on the Jägermeister Stage. General admission tickets for the InfieldFest were priced at $40 until Monday, and are $50 from now on. And while B.Y.O. is still a no-no, copious amounts of beer can still be obtained by those who purchase a mug for an additional $20 to become a part of the Mug Club. The $20 gets the souvenir cup and unlimited refills of beer. And apparently, the blessings of Kegasus as well.

10 THE BALTIMORE GUIDE

WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2011

WWKD?

(What would Kegasus drink?) BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

If you go to Pimlico Race Course for the Preakness Stakes, you have some options for dining. First, you have the infield (home of the bottomless beer mug, bikinis and bands). Don’t expect health food, but do expect variety. Infield eats include everything from crab cakes to funnel cakes to blooming onions to corn dogs. And of course, there’s Kegasus (half racehorse, half frat boy, all pitchman and mascot) whose appeal has been well-documented in these pages. Those who prefer their experience a little more, well, upscale (or perhaps ‘grown-up’ would be a better term) can enjoy grandstand seating and may be able to make a reservation to eat in one of the dining rooms or other facilities. They can enjoy caprese, grilled chicken, filet and a lot more. For, coincidentally, a lot more than the infield costs. And that’s saying something. And then there’s the rest of us poor slobs. We watch the race on TV, but we can still have the whole silly hat experience by making our own creative head-

gear (see the photo to the right for ideas). And we don’t need no steenkin’ centaur mascot either. Now if you truly want the infield experience, you can get a keg and do the bottomless beer mug thing, but that leads to all kinds of behavior that can get you arrested, or at least unfriended. Instead, try a more civilized tradition as part of your hosting capacity: serve a Black-Eyed Susan, the drink du jour of Preakness. The cocktail has been around for years, and is the racetrack equivalent of the lemon with a peppermint stick in it. It’s just as time-honored and just as totally Baltimore. According to the Preakness website, the official recipe (including brand names) is: 3/4 oz. 42 Below vodka 1-1/4 oz. Early Times Kentucky Whiskey 3 oz. sweet and sour mix 2 oz. orange juice Stir ingredients and garnish with an orange slice, maraschino cherry and stirrer (which in true Pimlico fashion, is topped with a plastic version of the signature flower). That’s one version, of course, and

if you turn to the Internet, you’ll find many more. The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they’re pretty potent, and can put you on the floor faster than you can say “Animal Kingdom.” So for those who want to avoid alcohol, or even to just pace themselves, or if your party is a family-friendly event and you want to keep the underage crowd happy, it’s essential to offer an n/a version of the Black-Eyed Susan. Bartenders around town came up short when asked to devise a breathalyzer-friendly version, but Google never fails. One site recommended

a mix of orange juice and sweet and sour mix, perhaps with a splash of grenadine for color and flavor. Another had the idea of four parts of orange juice, four parts pineapple juice and one part grenadine, perhaps with some sparkling water for interest. Your party menu may be as low-key as hamburgers and hot dogs, as traditionally Baltimore as a crab feast or as oldfashioned as a pot luck. Whatever it is, the drinks above will complement it. Best of all, there won’t be any embarrassing photos on YouTube to provide a testament to the power of the bottomless beer cup.

The Baltimore Guide 11

By Andrew Mindzak Okay, so the Baltimore Orioles are in last place, but you know what? That’s okay! Right now they are hovering around .500 and within striking distance of the first-place Tampa Bay Rays, not to mention the wild-card leading Detroit Tigers. Last week the Orioles swept the Seattle Mariners and took two out of three against the aforementioned first place Rays. After losing a tough one to the Boston Red Sox on Monday night (don’t worry, I’ll get to that later) they currently sit 19-21 and only 4.5 games out of first place. Yes. You are right, they are still a losing team. Technically, yes, but when compare this year to last, the team is light-years ahead. On May 18, 2010, the Orioles were 13-27. They didn’t get their 19th win until June 19. This team can play. Can they compete for a playoff spot? Well, that’s a good question, and they’ll need a few things to happen their way. For starters, Brian Matusz began his rehab assignment on Monday at Class A Frederick and threw four innings. He allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks. Once he is back, he will help bolster that start-

ing rotation even more. Chris Tillman is the likely odd man out, though he did pitch well against Boston Monday night. J.J. Hardy has played very well in his return. Hardy is hitting .400 since coming back last week, and has hit two home runs and driven in seven runs since his return. Nick Markakis continues to get better—he hit .348 on the week with a home run. Adam Jones has been on fire lately, hitting .440 this week with six RBI. Pitching-wise, Bard Bergesen tossed a gem, throwing a complete game shutout against the Tampa Bay Rays, striking out five batters and walking only one. Zach Britton earned a hard-luck no-decision as he threw nine scoreless innings (and allowed only three hits). Unfortunately the Orioles didn’t score until the 12th inning as they defeated the Seattle Mariners. Mike Gonzalez is up to his old tricks. The guy’s a magician, always trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Granted his defense didn’t help him against the Red Sox on Monday, but he gave up a run in one inning of work against Tampa Bay on

Sunday, and two earned runs against Seattle in only 2/3 innings pitched. At least you can say he is consistent. Speaking of consistent, I would like to shed some light onto our new Player of the Month: Jake Arrieta. Over the last month, Arrieta has done an excellent job, posting a 4-0 record since mid-April to go along with his stingy ERA of 2.75. Arrieta has also struck out 36 batters during those 36 innings. If Guthrie and Britton stay healthy, when Matusz returns the O’s will have a pretty formidable rotation to help get them over the .500 hump. And in other related news, Justin Duchscherer is still hurt. Right-handed pitcher Jake Arrieta has posted a 4-0 record since mid-April, and has struck out 36 batters in 36 innings.

THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

up with his prediction of the date and time, is not the only predictor of the End of the World. People have been predicting the end of time since just about the beginning of time. Jesus Christ predicted the end himself, when he said in Matthew 16:28 that “there shall be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom” and a little later, in Matthew 24:34, that “this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” Later on, the Apostle Paul predicted that the end would come by the end of the first century AD—that is, if you interpret some of his writings in the Epistles literally. Some do, some don’t. The Apocrypha, which are books not considered part of the Christian canon, but published in some Bibles in a separate section, predicted the end of the world in 1,000 years. So starting in the fall of 999, thousands of fanatics began to travel toward Jerusalem, so as to be in place for the Last Judgment on Jan. 1. This was despite an official Church edict that the end of the

world was not likely. In addition, armies of Christians ranged across the nonChristian world converting non-believers—by force if necessary. Thousands of people died of starvation, disease, war wounds or torture. The end did not come. In the days before scientific study was widely accepted, astrologers were the scientists of the day, and their word was widely believed. Astrologers predicted that London would be destroyed by flood in 1524, which proved to be unfounded, but not before thousands had fled from the city to higher ground. And when it didn’t happen, the astrologers consulted their charts again and discovered a slight error, and switched their prediction from 1524 to 1624. It didn’t happen then either. Another prediction in 1736 sent Londoners fleeing for the hills, and an earthquake in 1761 set off a serious panic. Between 1669 and 1690, 20,000 members of a Russian sect called the Old Believers set themselves on fire to protect themselves from the Antichrist.

The end of the world as we know it CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14

And then there was William Miller, the prophet of doom, who began predicting the end of the world in March of 1842. When that proved to be a dud he predicted global destruction in April and July, 1843, and March and October, 1844, and created quite a lucrative speaking career for himself predicting the end times. He began with hundreds of thousands of followers, with groups of them falling away as the apocalyptic predictions failed to come to pass. One of the breakaway sects became the Seventh-Day Adventists. The dire predictions have continued through the 19th and 20th centuries, and now the 21st, where bulletin boards and bus signs exhort non-believers to repent. The Archdiocese of Baltimore was noncomittal on the matter of May 21. “We do not have a response,� said Sean Caine, public information officer. The Rev. Mark Parker, pastor of Breath of God Lutheran Church in Highlandtown, says that the failure of hundreds of predictions of world’s end doesn’t dissuade people further prophecies. “There is something in us that makes us want to keep trying,� he says.

Pastor Mark, as he likes to be called, hosts weekly Pub Theology sessions at the Laughing Pint on Conkling Street. Last Thursday’s discussion was—you guessed it, the End of the World. Hard times trigger predictions of the end of the world, just as market fluctuations spawn predictions of global economic collapse and countless books advising investment in gold, precious stones and other traditional commodities. “Life is uncertain, and we realize there is so much that we can’t control,� says Pastor Mark. “And we like to be in control. Predicting the end is a kind of control. The Bible is not really clear on the subject, so it allows people to pick what they identify with and run with it.� But really, we should relax and take it a day at a time. “In another part of the Bible it says to take each day as it comes, that what happens in the future is up to God. God has shown Himself to be a loving and merciful God, so we should leave it at that and not try to parse it too much,� he says.

PITCHER

NEED CASH?

Over the last month, Arrieta has done an excellent job, posting a 4-0 record since mid April to go along with his stingy ERA of 2.75. Arrieta has also struck out 36 batters during those 36 innings. For the season, Arrieta is 5-1 with a 4.03 ERA. He has struck out 46 batters while walking only 21. He’s a little prone to the long ball though—he’s given up 7 HR so far.
