Licensees, attorneys, and community reps tapped to rewrite Liquor Board rules by danielle sweeney DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The Baltimore City Board of Liquor License Commissioners’ committee to draft new rules and regulations—to govern its administrative operations and hearings— will have its first meeting this summer. The committee, made up of equal parts attorneys, community representatives, and liquor licensees, will convene in late June or early July and meet weekly for about 10 weeks, said Michelle Bailey-Hedgepeth, the board’s new executive secretary, who will head the committee. The board’s rules and regulations have not been rewritten since 1998, so a revision is long overdue, Bailey-Hedgepeth said. I In addition, new state legislation pertaining to the Baltimore City Liquor Board has mandated that the board review CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Fun Fest planning underway, with more kids’ activities by ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The very beginning of summer is not too soon for planning the Fell’s Point Fun Festival, says Mike Maraziti, president of Fell’s Point Main Street, which last year took over the planning and executing of the festival. Maraziti gave a brief update—“a preemptive strike, if you will,” he said—to the Fell’s Point Residents Association last week on the festival, which was first held in 1966 to showcase the historic Fell’s Point, which would have been demolished to make way for a

highway had the powers that were had their way. “The Fun Festival is well underway, under planning,” said Maraziti. He said that this year’s festival—always held the first weekend in October—will be similar to last year’s, which departed from the standard model by allowing alcohol to be drunk throughout the festival grounds, rather than containing it in a few beer gardens. “Obviously, it comes down to the alcohol part of it,” said Maraziti,

Southeast Baltimore the focus of HGTV’s ‘House Hunters’ by ERIK ZYGMONT EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Local fans of the HGTV’s “House Hunters” are in for a treat this evening, as tonight’s episode, airing at 10 p.m., follows a Pennsylvania couple—Julian and Lacy—on their search for a home in southeast Baltimore. Realtor Ryan Sebeck of RE/MAX Preferred is the agent helping the couple in their search for a dream home. Sebeck says that the search focuses on the “Canton/Fell’s Point area.” “Our experience on the show was awesome,” he says. “You’ll see once the show airs—there’s a lot of energy.”
Sebeck believes that the show will give Baltimore some much-needed positive press in TV land, which continues on under the widelyheld belief that most of what you need to know about Baltimore can be learned from another TV show. “Even the producers of [“House Hunters”], when they came out, they were like, ‘Oh, “The Wire.”’ There’s a lot of crime here,’” says Sebeck. “Then, they come out and see the social scene.”
“We’re hoping them filming in Baltimore gets them good ratings, and they’ll want to do more in the area,” he adds. According to HGTV.com, “House

Hunters” is a behind-the-scenes look at the house-buying process, as buyers decide what they really want and what they can afford. “Focusing on the emotional experiences of finding and purchasing a new home, each episode shows the process as buyers search for a home,” says the website. Nick Frisone of Baltimore Media Blog— facebook.com/BaltimoreMediaBlog— watches the show, and his comments call to mind a footloose man, and a woman’s bloodstained hands. “The show is a great lesson for first-time home buyers and current homeowners alike,” writes Frisone. “You can’t always get what you want with your budget. Compromise is KEY.”

To the Editor Candidates forum publicity needed to be better To the Editor: Why, why, why was there so little publicity about the 46th District candidates’ forum last week? My husband and I always vote the primaries, study the issues and take an interest in what the candidates say. Sadly much of the material arriving in our mailbox posits the same banalities—better schools, safer streets, more jobs. OK, that’s fine, but the issues in Baltimore are enormous! Folks had better pay attention. And they’d better show up and vote on Primary Day. I learned about Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance’s event by chance when someone mentioned it, only the day before. I certainly would have attended, in fact I would have loved to attend if any of the organizers had taken the time to contact those in the neighborhood who do show up and vote. I had an important, prior commitment so I was a no-show. This has happened before, and will again. Baltimore has a hopeless history of poor outreach and communication, take my word for it. Sure, we all want good schools—but when you learn of the violence at Digital Harbor (in the 46th District), it’s never mentioned. The only solution, it seems, is to throw more taxpayer dollars at the problem and sweep it under the rug. Yes, public transportation in Baltimore is lacking, but it’s not all that bad. I ride the buses, the Light Rail and the Metro—they’re great. And let’s not forget the Charm City Circulator—another fantastic mode of transportation. It is fast, free and frequent. On the subject of the Red Line, they still haven’t figured out the route it will take. Today it’s to be under the Jones Falls, not President St., nor under Little Italy as originally planned. This should have been nailed down before one dollar was spent on the project. Baltimore has huge problems, but don’t forget that we were once a great city. We could be a great city again if the folks overcame their apathy and indifference. It would be nice if forums like the one last week are better promoted in the future. Don’t forget, there are still citizens who take an interest in what happens at 100 N. Holliday Street, in Annapolis, and in Washington. We are the ones who pay attention. Please don’t forget us again. Rosalind Ellis Heid, Inner Harbor

I read with great interest about the Patterson Park neighbors who oppose a new bar moving into their neighborhood. (May 21, “Residents oppose liquor license transfer to Patterson Park neighborhood) I hope the Liquor Board rules in favor of Rev. Parks and the neighbors. Rev. Parks seems to be a man who sees suffering and seeks to heal it, not unlike my hero, Bobby Kennedy, who was killed 45 years ago the very month that the Liquor Board will make its decision. To rule in favor of the neighborhood and the cleric would keep hope alive. As the slain senator said two years before his murder, “Each time someone acts to improve the lot of others, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.” Denny Olver, Highlandtown

Harbor Point construction begins; residents may view air-monitoring data by ERIK ZYGMONT EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Having secured the MDE and EPA signoffs on the air-monitoring systems they have put in place, Beatty Development is set to begin work on their Harbor Point development, starting with the 350-foot Exelon Tower. Marco Greenberg, vice president of Beatty Development, told residents at last week’s Fell’s Point Residents Association meeting that that the process would start this week, with 70-foot piles being delivered to Harbor Point. The piles are driven into the ground, and will serve as footings for the massive buildings being constructed. Greenberg said that 24 piles would be driven per day. The developers are using hollow cylindrical piles with a rounded-tip, conical heads. Greenberg said that though these particular piles don’t ring as they are being driven in, the process is still loud. “From 500 feet away, a thousand feet away, you’re going to hear it,” he said. Greenberg said that crews are authorized by city ordinance to work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., six days a week, but that he hoped work days would finish a couple hours before 7 p.m. Three state officials associated with the environmental mitigation aspects of the development attended to answer questions. Toxicologist Mark Mank of the Maryland Department of the Environment said that stations will be simultaneously monitoring

for dust and chromium. While dust can be instantly detected, it takes longer to determine the chromium level of a substance, so the developers will be acting on the assumption that any dust stirred up is contaminated dust, though it may not be. The development site has four airmonitoring stations set up around its perimeter at the four compass points. There are also two off-site air monitors— one at Old Town Mall, the other near the National Aquarium. Mank said that the offsite monitors establish a background—what constitutes normalcy in Baltimore City at any given time. Data from the six monitoring stations— along with other information about the development—is available at a speciallydesignated website, harborpointbaltimore. info, under the “Health & Safety” tab. Mank said that the air monitoring equipment is sensitive enough that it has been set off by an idling diesel truck, and by a person sweeping on the site. “I’m pretty confident the system is working as intended,” he said. Edward Dexter, a geologist with the MDE, gave residents an overview of the pile installation process. The western portion of the site is a former chromium dump that has been capped with layers of plastic and gravel. Dexter said that for each pile, builders will dig until they hit buried red construction netting, a warning that they are approaching CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

As campaign winds down, Davis interacts with local voters by ERIK ZYGMONT EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Liam Davis, one of three non-incumbent Democrats running for a seat in the House of Delegates for the 46th District, is cautiously optimistic. “We have a lot of people who are enthusiastic, but we can’t underestimate the competition,” he said during a door-knocking session last weekend.  Davis, 24, is the youngest candidate in the field. For those residents who answer their doors and cuss him out with a direct statement—“I hate all politicians”—Davis has a clever response:  “I’m not a politician; this is my first time running.” He tells residents that he is “just trying to bring some fresh blood to Annapolis.” He says that he is running because “I’ve always loved the city—I’ve always loved cities.” Davis grew up in northeast Baltimore, but at some point “moved to the county” with his parents and siblings. “When I moved to the county, a lot of people talked trash about Baltimore City, and it hurt because it was my hometown,” he says.  Davis is a graduate of Calvert Hall and Towson University, where he majored in metropolitan studies. 

Many voters note his unabashed support of the Red Line, as planned. As we’re walking north on Highland Ave., a woman from Eastern Ave. yells “Liam!” Davis pauses, and Monica Broere, a Southeast resident locally famous for her painted screens, jogs up. She says that she just tried to convince a few other residents to vote for Davis. “One of the reasons I’m voting for you is you’re pro-Red Line,” she says. “I just think that’s going to be a real boom for the neighborhood.” “We’ve got to stop driving,” she adds, admitting that she owns a car which mostly sits in her driveway, though she sometimes uses it “because I know I’m going to get there at the appointed time.” Davis ties the Red Line with attracting young people to the city. “They’re graduating college with an enormous amount of debt,” he says. “They’re going to have pay off that debt...and they’ll have to decide if they want to pay a car loan or pay rent. I don’t think they’re going to want to stay with Mom and Dad.” He also remembers a class he took at Towson, which explored the “disconnect between the top 10 percent and the bottom 10 percent.” He says that a rail line could help eliminate that.

The 411 on

BALTIMORE GUIDE 7

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 2014

That said, Brillman told residents that he should be notified immediately if an operator ever hangs up on a caller. “You need to call me right away,” he said. “That is the worst thing an operator can do.” Brillman addressed the prioritization of calls, noting that calls are prioritized through a protocol system. “When you call and say that something is in progress, it’s a priority,” he added. Sometimes, 911 has more calls than operators. “There’ll be a brush fire on 83, and every driver that goes by is calling us,” Brillman explained. “Do not hang up if you hear, ‘Your call is important to us; please stay on the line.’” “It’s first-come, first-served on 911,” he added, explaining that held calls are put in a queue and answered based on when the call was made. If you hang up when you are placed on hold, you will lose your place in the queue, Brillman said. At one point in Brillman’s talk, Captain Deron Garrity, commander of the Southeast District, said that residents calling for robberies or other crimes often wonder why operators ask so many questions about them, rather than the suspects. Brillman said that callers can keep anonymity when they call and give scant information about themselves, but “our operators are trained to dig and dig and dig.”

911 by ERIK ZYGMONT

EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Scott Brillman, acting director of Baltimore City Emergency Communications and 911, attended the Southeast District Police Community Relations Council meeting last week to give residents an insider’s view of 911 services in the city. Brillman began with a history of the city’s 911 system, starting with just prior to its overhaul a couple years ago. Whereas in the past, operators would ask callers if they wanted police, fire or ambulance, and then transfer the call, the system has now been unified. “We’ve changed the system according to best practices across the country,” Brillman said, adding that every county in Maryland now has a similar, unified call center. He said that he was attending the meeting in part because he had received many, many complaints from residents about repetitive questions asked by the operators, as well as the sheer number of questions. With regard to the lengthy questioning, Brillman assured residents that their emergencies were being responded to as quickly as possible. “When they’re asking you all these questions, a unit has already been dispatched,” he said, “and [the operator] is just feeding information through a computer system.” “In any call where you’re in danger or you feel unsafe, if you continue to give information to that operator, they can continue to give information to that officer en route.” Brillman said that there is a question that all operators must ask twice: “What is the location of your emergency?”

He said that residents didn’t like answering the same question twice, especially at first. “The first month we started asking it twice, people started yelling back at us,” he said. However, the question is asked twice because, Brillman said, callers sometimes make mistakes while under the stress of an emergency. Thanks to the new practice, he said, “we’ve cut wrong addresses by 50 percent.” He added that for calls requiring a police response, operators will also ask residents for their phone numbers twice. “If we can’t call you back, we’re no good to you,” he said. Whatever questions the 911 operators ask, the only way to hear different questions would be to move out of state. Brillman pointed out that the questions are the same for 911 call centers across the state. “All the directors talk monthly, and we all try to have the same protocols,” he said. Brillman emphasized that 911 operators go through very strict and extensive training. They have a strict script which they must stick to, word-for-word. Four calls per month are monitored for quality assurance, he said. While four calls not sound like a lot, it is one of the biggest quality assurance program in the state, he said. An operator has national certification to walk a caller through various emergency procedures, including CPR, the use of an automated external defibrillator, response to a choking emergency and baby delivery. “Our operators are some of the best in the country,” he said. “They deliver a lot of babies every day.”

A resident asked him if calls in which callers offer less personal information are taken less seriously. “No, not at all,” he said. He said that Baltimore City Emergency Communications and 911 is the “busiest call center in the state,” taking 4,000 calls per day, not including 311 calls. The most common calls which fall under the purview of the Fire Department are for chest pains or diabetes-related emergencies. For the Police Department, Brillman said that he didn’t know the most common type of call, but Garrity referenced “disorderly calls” for “people acting disorderly.” Additionally, the center gets lots of 911 hang-ups, Brillman said, and “a lot of kids calling.” Dealing with children can be quite difficult for a 911 operator, Brillman said, noting that operators may not hang up the phone, and spend a lot of time trying to convince children to put their parents on the line. Overall, the job of a 911 operator is difficult, he added. “It’s actually fascinating,” he said. “I don’t think I could handle it. These folks take a lot of abuse--a lot of yelling.”

LIQUOR: 10 meetings planned CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

its regulations by or before Oct. 31, 2015, and at least once every five years thereafter. Bailey-Hedgepeth said the idea for the committee came not from her but from the current two-member board,which consists of acting chair Elizabeth Smith and commissioner Harvey Jones, as well as former board chair Stephan Fogleman, now an Orphans Court judge. Smith said: “Historically, and I don’t mean recently, the agency’s administrative arm has not always been the most open and communicative, and because of this, the rules sometimes caused more problems than they helped.” Smith added that the board wants to build relationships with communities throughout the city. “The relationship-building process begins by defining how we operate,” she said. The rewrite committee will have 15-18 members, divided equally among community representatives, liquor licensees, and attorneys (including city attorneys) with various specialties including liquor issues.  

The committee members were chosen based on their applications and resumes. The board issued a press release about the committee in mid-May and the deadline to apply was June 9. Requirements included being a registered voter over the age of 18 and having a business or residence in Baltimore City; however the release stated that preference would be given to those who had experience with the Liquor Board. “Members of the community have different perspectives than agency staff, and by weighing in on the rules, the committee will give a more holistic approach to how the agency will operate,” said commissioner Harvey Jones. Bailey-Hedgepeth said the committee will meet weekly on Thursdays, 9:30-11:30

a.m., and have a total of 10-11 meetings, concluding by Sept. 25, so that a report can be prepared for the board by Oct. 2. The meetings will be open to the public for observation purposes Bailey-Hedgepeth noted. She acknowledged that the board is working on improving its processes in general, but she wants to hear the specific concerns of the three constituencies represented on the committee: the licensees, community members, and attorneys. Bailey-Hedgepeth said that the current rules and regulations will be made available online in pdf form in English, Spanish and Korean for the public’s review, and she welcomes comments and questions regarding the rules and regulations revision process.

...Selling alcohol in Baltimore City is a privilege to be earned…

“The public can call or email me,” she said. Notes from the rewrite committee meetings will be available to the public, she added. Smith said that a press release announcing the members of the rules and regulations rewrite committee will be released shortly. Patrick Lundberg, a member of the Patterson Park Neighborhood Association who follows liquor issues in his community, applied to be a member. “As someone who understands community priorities in relation to liquorrelated issues in southeast Baltimore, I hope to be able to contribute to the rules and regulations committee to optimize the liquor licensing process, and make it as accountable, transparent, and efficient as possible,” Lundberg said. “...Selling alcohol in Baltimore City is a privilege to be earned, and I hope to work towards a licensing process that ensures licensees and the Liquor Board itself understand the widespread implications liquor sales can have upon the health, safety, and well-being of our communities.”

Soldier, 96, receives long-overdue recognition by ERIK ZYGMONT

EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Better late than never. Last week, Sen. Barbara Mikulski honored Maryland’s last member of the Borinqueneers—a regiment of Puerto Rican soldiers who overcame discrimination and segregation to distinguish themselves in battle, during World War II, but especially during the Korean War. Once legislation which has cleared the House and Senate is signed by President Obama, Staff Sgt. Retired Leonardo Martinez, 96, will receive the Congressional Gold Medal with the rest of the Borinqueneers, an American regiment

comprised of segregated Puerto Rican soldiers. The Borinqueneers—the name derived from the Taino word for Puerto Rico, which means “land of the brave lord,” according to the text of the Senate bill—were initially relegated to non-combatant roles during World War I, as were most segregated units at the time. During World War II, the unit deployed overseas for the first time. “Despite the Regiment’s relatively limited combat service in World War II,” reads the text of the Senate bill, “the unit suffered casualties in the course of defending against

enemy attacks, with individual soldiers earning one Distinguished Service Cross, two Silver Stars, two Bronze Stars, and 90 Purple Hearts, and the unit receiving campaign participation credit for RomeArno, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe.” During the Korean War, the Borinqueneers solidified a reputation of, in the words of Brig. Gen. William W. Harris, “the best damn soldiers I had ever seen.” Harris, according to the Senate bill text, had admitted that he was initially reluctant to have the Borinqueneers under his command, due to the prejudice that “the

If there is something to do, you do it right... you do it for your country and your organization.

Puerto Rican was a rum and Coca-Cola soldier.” Not true. “This unit’s extraordinarily high casualty rate underscored the fact that it had been serving on the front line, face to face with the enemy, at the tip of the spear,” said Sen. Mikulski at a special ceremony for Martinez, held at Fort McHenry on Monday, June 2. Mikulski joined with over 70 co-sponsors of the bill in April. The bill was passed unanimously by Congress. “I look forward to welcoming [Martinez] to the Capitol when his regiment gets the Gold Medal,” said Mikulski. “The medal itself is never cast until the legislation is signed by the president himself.” Sam Rodriguez, Maryland Borinqueneer Congressional Gold Medal Alliance Delegate, thanked Mikulski for her efforts in getting the Congressional Gold Medal legislation passed. “We combined all our forces; we have all come together,” he said. “It was Sen. Mikulski’s office where I first went for guidance to get this thing approved.” Martinez was accompanied, according to Mikulski, by four generations of his family, including his sons Angel and Miguel, both of whom served in the Vietnam War as commissioned officers. Angel Martinez said that his father greatly appreciated the honor. “I see the difference in him, and how he’s come to life,” the younger Martinez said, summing up his father’s philosophy: “If there is something to do, you do it right...you do it for your country and your organization.” During one of his missions in Korea, Leonardo Martinez was wounded in his back and leg during a mortar assault, and was discovered a week later and sent to Japan for medical care. He credits his survival to the six or seven layers of clothing he was wearing. After the Korean War, Martinez served in Alaska, Kentucky, Germany and Maryland, and eventually went to work for the United States Postal Service. He served 25 years in the military, and 22 years at the Post Office. “I’m very happy to see you here,” Martinez told his family and other attendees as Mikulski and Rodriguez presented him with an American flag.

Junior ornithologists band birds in Patterson Parking by ERIK ZYGMONT EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Students from Hampstead Hill Academy participated in Urban Nestwatch, a program which pairs middle school students with ornithologists from the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. In Patterson Park last week, students helped bird experts search for and capture birds; each bird was fitted with a color-coded band around its leg before being released. “The object of the program is to connect kids with nature, and do that by having kids see a bird in the hand,” said Milu Karp of the Smithsonian. Erin Reed of the Patterson Park Audubon Center helped put the program in touch with Hampstead Hill Academy, and participated in the onsite activities. “We reached out to the middle school, because that’s an age group we don’t normally interact with in Audubon,” she said. The kids searched for birds along the boardwalk that partially surrounds the Patterson Park Boat Lake. After a few students correctly identify the cattails growing in the marsh, they asked if they could take one. “I like to say, ‘Take only pictures; leave only footprints,’” said Reed. “Awwwww....” said the students. Reed explained that beyond the educational aspect, the project also analyzes the health of

local birds. A healthy bird indicates a healthy habitat, “and that is a good sign for us, because if it’s a healthy habitat for birds, it’s healthy for us, too,” she said. With a Grey Catbird in her hand, Smithsonian ornithologist Mandy Talpas engaged the students: “I like to call birds bio-indicators,” she said. “They indicate to me how healthy and how clean the environment is.” The Smithsonian team checked the birds and recorded their sexes, sizes, fatness, and foot sizes. “How do you think I’m going to be able to tell if it’s a male or female?” Talpas bravely asked the middle schoolers. Hands shot up, but the answers were PG enough. “A female with a nest will have missing feathers on its body,” revealed Talpas. She told the students that each captured bird will be banded with its own unique identifying number, “just like you boys and girls have your own Social Security numbers.” A student asked if banding was “like surgery.” “No, it’s not like surgery,” replied Talpas. “It’s just like putting a bracelet or watch on.” It seems to make sense to band and otherwise permanently identify individual animals of an endangered species. But does banding common birds, of which there are billions, work? Are the banded birds ever seen again? Karp says that there is about a 1- or 2-percent recapture rate for songbirds. For birds of prey, that rate is greater, 10- to 15-percent. Talpas told the students that most birds— over 50 percent—die before they are a year old. “That’s OK,” commented Reed. “Their only goal in life is to successfully breed, so if they do that, they’re OK.” Talpas opened the floor to questions, and the students had some good ones. “How much do you get paid?” a girl asked.

Get some kids together; add live animals into the mix; and an infectious wonder will spread to all present. Last Saturday was the annual Fishing Festival, an event geared toward kids that welcomed all. Held at the Patterson Park Boat Lake, the festival was produced by Baltimore City

Recreation and Parks in partnership with the Friends of Patterson Park and Patterson Park Audubon. In addition to fishing, the event featured balloon animals, “fishing lessons” for the very young and other games. To a child, there’s not much that’s more exciting than feeling that primal tug as a fish takes the bait.

BIRDS HOUSE

by Andy Mindzak

Machado kicks stone, hurts foot Oh Manny, Manny, Manny. What a weekend for the Baltimore Orioles against the Oakland Athletics, specifically for the Orioles’ young third baseman. They say two wrongs don’t make a right, but as Jack Handey once said, “Before we criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.” Before we get to the actions of Sunday, let’s rewind to Friday. During the third inning of Friday’s 4-3 loss to Oakland, Baltimore’s young third baseman was trying to advance to third but was tagged out in the chest by Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson. Machado took exception to the tag, thinking it was a bit rough. As he was trying to avoid the tag, he lost his balance and slammed his helmet down on the ground, then started to jaw at Donaldson. Benches cleared but order was restored. Later, in the sixth inning, Baltimore starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen plunked Donaldson with a fastball. As Horace once said, “Anger is a short madness,” and one might have thought that was the end of it, however we were greatly misled. Saturday’s game brought an uneventful 6-3 Baltimore victory, but the fireworks didn’t start until Sunday. With the Athletics up by 10 in the eighth inning, Machado took a Fernando Abad pitch a bit inside, enough to make him not so happy. The very next pitch was also low and in, right at knee-level, and as Machado took a weird swing at it, he let the bat go at the direction of Oakland third baseman Alberto Callaspo. 0Both players were ejected and we tried to figure out what the heck just happened. If we rewind just a smidge to the sixth inning, Machado missed on a Scott Kazmir pitch and hit catcher Derek Norris in the helmet with his backswing. My assumption and hope is that it was an accident, but normally in a spot like that, you obviously know your bat hit someone in the helmet. What a normal person does is ask and make sure the person is OK. At least show some concern and/or remorse for said accident. Machado did no such thing. In fact, Norris said he saw Machado smile

afterwards. Norris would eventually leave the game as a precautionary measure, as he was feeling woozy. At first glance you might have thought maybe Machado had a right to get mad for being thrown at, but from what it seems like, that close pitch was a retaliation for his actions around his backswing on Norris. Now, there are many unwritten rules in the game, and I don’t condone throwing at anyone, but it seems like that was what Abad did, and both he and Machado were tossed from the game. Machado said, “The bat slipped out of my hands. Trying to make contact and the umpire thought it was intentional and he tossed me at that point.” I’m not sure I buy that. Up to this point Machado had been a decent human being, and while he might not have been Mother Theresa, he certainly never went all Milton Bradley on us. We will see this week what happens in regards to a suspension. At press time, nothing had been released, but I’m sure something will happen. I don’t agree with Machado’s reaction to the tag from Donaldson on Friday and certainly don’t condone his tossing of the bat and his earlier failure to check on Norris after hitting him in the head with his backswing. On the flip side, I also don’t condone the A’s for throwing at him (whether they will admit it or not). As I said before, two wrongs certainly don’t make a right, and in this case, neither offender was right. As the Korean proverb states, “If you kick a stone in anger you will hurt your foot.”

PET CARE

RAILINGS and more!

By Adriene Buisch

Heatstroke: Your pet can’t take the heat Many of us enjoy the sunshine and summer heat, but hot weather combined with a fur coat can be a lethal combination for your pet. What it you weren’t able to shed your winter clothes on a hot summer day, and your only means to cooling off was by panting? You’re probably sweating just thinking about it (ironic, since sweat cools you off but your pets can’t sweat). Flirting with heatstroke could be fatal for your pet, so let’s turn down the heat and get familiar with the facts. No breed of cat or dog is immune to temperatures above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, there are some pets that are more prone to heatstroke, specifically short-nosed breeds, pets that are

On hot days, hydration is key. | Photo by Adelaidasofia, via Wikimedia Commons

overweight, young, elderly, and the sick. Since your pets cannot sweat like us, they regulate their temperature by panting, a cooling method that needs a good, long airway to be effective. Short nosed breeds—bulldogs, pugs, Pekinese, etc— are more susceptible because their tracheas aren’t as large as in other breeds. There are simple rules to avoiding heatstroke. Never leave your dog in the car on a hot day. Anda hot day is just 70 degrees or higher. It only takes a few minutes for temperatures to soar to intolerable levels, even if you have the windows cracked. Additionally, never leave your pet confined in an airless room, crate, or tied up outside on a hot day. Limiting your pet from shade or breezy areas is a death sentence. It doesn’t have to be a 90-degree day to risk heatstroke. The best rule of thumb: keep the pet indoors during a heat advisory. Recognizing signs and knowing heatstroke symptoms can save your pet’s life. Look for excessive panting, rapid loud breathing, extreme thirst and thick saliva. As heatstroke progresses, your pet may vomit or have diarrhea, become disoriented, have bright red gums and tongue, have seizures or tremors, or collapse. When these symptoms occur, your pet’s soft palate is swelling and restricting air flow. This means it’s becoming harder to pant and breathe; therefore your pet is unable to cool its body down. Heatstroke is no joke; it’s an emergency. Go to the vet immediately, and make sure you’re cooling your pet down the best you can on your way there. Even if it seems like your pet has cooled down, don’t be fooled. The internal organs can take a beating and may cause irreversible brain and nerve tissue damage. Don’t let a simple day in the sun become detrimental.

LIAM DAVIS: No more incinerators, says Davis CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6

“In New York, you have the richest guy in the world sitting on a train, next to the guy with two different shoes—so he can understand what [the poorer man] is going through,” Davis says. “If you agree with me—if you disagree with me—you might appreciate that I’m coming on straight.” “Yeah, you’re not wishy-washy at all,” Broere responds. Her point is tested later, when Davis knocks on a door. He and the voter who answers seem to share a lot of common ground, until she mentions her disdain of the Red Line. “I’m going to be honest with you; I’m supporting it,” Davis says. “When it’s all said and done, we’re gong to be better off once they put the infrastructure in there.” “They should’ve done it 20 years ago,” says the woman.

“That’s exactly my point!” Davis exclaims. “If we don’t do it now, we’re going to be saying the same thing 20 years from now.” The candidate also emphasizes his environmental agenda, specifically with regard to air pollution. “For my first piece of legislation, I would draw a red line around Baltimore City and say ‘No more incinerators,’” he says. The primary election is June 24. In addition to Davis, newcomers Brooke Lierman and Bill Romani are Democrats running for delegate in the 46th District, as are incumbents Luke Clippinger and Pete Hammen. The three Republican candidates—Roger Bedingfield, Duane Shelton and Joseph Sedtal—are not subject to the primary and will face the Democrats in the Nov. 4 General Election.

HARBOR POINT

Man attacked in Patterson Park

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5

Police reports state that a man reported being approached and attacked in Patterson Park on Thursday, June 5, at approximately 8:30 p.m. According to the report, the man said that while he was walking in the park, he was approached by three males appearing to be between the ages of 13 and 15. Some of the information in the report is blacked out, but it states that one of the juveniles started to do something, and then all of them began to punch the victim with their fists. The report states that the victim said that he fought back, pulling a shirt off one of the juveniles. The juveniles ran off on foot to the south towards Eastern Ave. The report states that the victim had a scratch on his nose but refused a medic. An area canvass did not turn up witnesses or suspects.

the cap. Dexter showed a slide presentation of the process, and he noted that, beyond the netting, the hole is dug by hand until the plastic cap is reached. Then, the “men in white suits” take over, peeling off two layers of plastic. The excavation is then probed for obstacles before the pile is driven. Any dirt taken from the hole, Dexter said, will be put in an excavator bucket that is not touching the ground, to be deposited in a “special receptacle.” “This stuff, they have to treat as contaminated, whether it is or isn’t,” he said. During the meeting, a researcher from Johns Hopkins also revealed her intentions to simultaneously and independently monitor the air near the project.

Mother and son attacked on Broadway Editor’s note: The Baltimore Guide was unable to obtain the police log for June 1-7. What follows is the portion of last week’s log, May 25-31, which was cut from last week’s Baltimore Guide to fit the space.

Burglary

N. Milton Ave., 500 block, May 29, 2 p.m. An unknown suspect crawled through the victim’s second-floor window and removed a 32-inch flatscreen TV. The window latch to the room had been already broken, and the next door neighbor’s balcony afforded easy access to the window. E. Baltimore St., 1600 block, May 30, 1:08 a.m. A man threw a brick through the front glass door, entered, scattered property around, and fled. No property was reported taken from the business. E. Baltimore St., 1600 block, May 30, 1:08 a.m. An interior door in the above business had been locked but forced open. That door led to a separate business. The suspect took $160 from the separate business. E. Lombard St., 4700 block, May 16, 2:30 p.m. Unknown persons entered the property’s front gate with a key and code, entered, and took four 12-volt, deep-cell batteries, valued at $1,500. N. Luzerne Ave., 400 block, May 30, 7:15 p.m. The victim said that she heard a noise coming from upstairs, went to investigate, and confronted a male suspect, who then fled the scene. He had entered through an unlocked, rear, first-floor window. Claremont Ave., 3500 block, May 31, 5:36 a.m. After reviewing security footage, it was discovered that an unknown male suspect had used an unknown tool to break the side window of the business. He took $200; various brands of cigarettes valued at $2,000; and a computer. Gusryan St., 1200 block, May 31, 2 p.m. The site foreman reported that someone broke into a small storage trailer that had been locked and secured and stole some tools.

Our Lady of Pompei

Aliceanna St., 1000 block, May 24, 1:50 a.m. Officers responded to the hotel for an out-of-control female. Upon arrival, the female began screaming racist statements at the officers. When they tried to escort her from the hotel, she threw her purse at the back of one of the officer’s heads, then struck him in the eye with an open hand. Once in the district holding cell, she repeatedly spit on herself so no one would touch her, and kicked the door to the cell, causing damage. S. Broadway, 100 block, May 26, 5:15 p.m. The victim said that he was waiting in the parking lot of the store for charity workers to drop off food for homeless citizens. The suspect walked up to him and began talking to him in Spanish. The victim, who does not speak Spanish, told the suspect to leave him alone, at which point the suspect pulled out a serrated folding knife and swung it at him. The victim ran towards the street and called police; the suspect went into the store. He was arrested. N. Kenwood Ave., 100 block, May 26, 7:55 p.m. The victim and her roommate got into a heated dispute. The roommate threw a 12-ounce drinking glass at her but missed. She

then picked up the broken glass pieces and threw it at her, causing a laceration. The suspect fled but later returned and was arrested. She had been drinking earlier in the evening. The victim was taken to the hospital and required stitches. S. Broadway, 100 block, May 27, 3:20 p.m. The victim and his mother were leaving a business when they were approached by an unknown female of an unknown age, and three males, ages approximately 18-20. The woman said, “What are you lookin at?” The victim’s mother does not speak English, so he told the group that he and his mother did not want any trouble. The suspect began fighting the mother; the son tried to separate them, and at that point the male suspects started punching him. Both victims were punched repeatedly. E. Fayette St., 1700 block, May 27, 10:45 p.m. The victim said that he was driving home and was stopped at a light when he heard a loud noise and then felt a force against his door, and the window shattered. He said that he heard a second loud noise, and the driverside window broke. He said that at that point a Subaru Legacy, driven by a man, drove by and overtook him. The victim said that he stopped at a gas station to get cigarettes, and then drove home, where he realized his car had been shot.

FUN FESTIVAL: Crab feast

PHIL TIRABASSI

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

adding that in his opinion, the new alcohol policy made for “a more fluid festival.” “It was the first festival in many years where there wasn’t one police issue,” Maraziti aedded. Also similar to last year will be the festival’s layout—or “the Big T”— Thames St. and Broadway. Last year, the festival ran up Broadway to Eastern; it may stop at Fleet this year, according to Maraziti, for a more affordable event requiring that much less policing. This fall, look for an enhanced children’s section, Maraziti said, as there is a group focusing solely on the planning of that. Crab feast Fell’s Point Main Street also took the floor to announce a new event—a crab feast to be held Thursday, June 19, 5:309 p.m. in Broadway Square. Bmore Events, a company owned by Fell’s Point resident Steve Jackson, is running the event. “He has volunteered a considerable amount of time and expertise to Fell’ Point Main Street over the years,” said Joy Giordano, executive director of Fell’s Point Main Street. Last year, Jackson ran the beer operation for the Fun Festival. The crab feast costs $65, and includes unlimited, steamed-on-site jumbo crabs; draft beer; and a “full board” complement menu including pit beef, coleslaw, etc. Tickets are available through Mission Tix at 240-565-4493.
