New gallery to celebrate historic Highlandtown BY ERIK ZYGMONT EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

It will be a spot for enthusiasts from Baltimore and beyond to appreciate intriguing works of art, and the legendary neighborhood of Highlandtown—that’s how Felicia Zannino-Baker envisions Highlandtown Gallery, scheduled to open later this summer. The space, at 248 S. Conkling St., will house an interactive gallery and coffee shop, plus a cupcakery and an Italian ice shop. “There may be a painter, a sculptor and a jewelry artist adjacent to each other,” says Zannino-Baker, showing off mobile display walls inside the gallery space. Not limited to visual art, the space could feature a poet or an acoustic guitarist, she adds. One thing will be permanent—a “History of Highlandtown” exhibit, with a constantlyrunning slideshow, memorabilia, and Highlandtown-themed gifts. CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

100 screens for 100 years: Main Street businesses and Painted Screen Society celebrate an East Baltimore art form BY DANIELLE SWEENEY

DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

“A true folk art is of and for the community,” says Elaine Eff, founder of the Baltimore Painted Screen Society. “Screen painting has always been an East Baltimore art form.” Eff, who lives in Northwest Baltimore, says she first became interested in screen painting as a graduate student in the 1970s and fell in love with it.

“I don’t paint screens myself,” Eff says. “I’m a folklorist.” According to the Painted Screen Society, screen painting was invented in Baltimore by William Oktavec, a Czech grocer, in 1913. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the creation of the art form, the Painted Screen Society and the Highlandtown Main CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Fire Chief Clack to resign Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced late last Friday that Fire Department Chief James Clack is stepping down, effective July 26. In Clack’s absence, Assistant Chief Jeffrey Segal will serve as Acting Chief until a permanent replacement is found. In a statement released last week, RawlingsBlake praised Clack’s commitment to safety. “In the last three years, as the city faced significant budget challenges, we reduced fire deaths to an all-time low, improved fire response times, and increased citizens’ access to free smoke alarms,” said the mayor. “Chief Clack’s commitment to improving the overall operations of the department has prepared us for further achievement in the coming years.” Clack said in a statement that serving in

Baltimore was an honor. “In Baltimore, I had the opportunity to lead the most professional and courageous fire department in the United States,” he said. “I want to especially thank Mayor RawlingsBlake for her outstanding leadership and her continued commitment to improving public safety in Baltimore.” Clack, who came to Baltimore after serving in the Minneapolis Fire Department for over 20 years, said he planned to return to Minnesota to spend time with family. Acting Chief Segal, a Baltimore native, joined the Fire Department in 1987 as a firefighter; he advanced to become a pump operator, captain, battailion chief, battalion commander, division chief and deputy chief before becoming Assistant Chief of Operations.

Living history group to honor Baltimore's 1812 defenders

Aisquith’s Sharp Shooters, a Dundalk-based War of 1812 living history unit, to hold a remembrance of Baltimore’s defenders who made the ultimate sacrifice on Sept. 12-14, 1814. The remembrance will be held on Saturday, June 15, 9 a.m.-noon, and will consist of a one-anda-half mile walk over ground where citizen soldiers laid down their lives. The walk will cover the area from where the first skirmishes with the British took place, to the site of the Battle of North Point, and then to where the wounded on both sides were treated. Other living history units have been invited to join, and the public is welcome. The group will be meeting at the McDonald’s at North Point Blvd. and Old Battle Grove Rd. between 8:30-9 a.m. The walk will begin at 9 a.m., with a brief interpretation and ceremony at each historical site.

'Pop-up public space' comes to Highlandtown Last Wednesday, the Southeast Community Development Corporation unveiled a new public space in front of Baltimore Threadquarters, a fiber arts store on S. Conkling St. The pop-up public space, based on the needs of community members who attended a place-making workshop last spring, consists of three wooden benches constructed around beautifully “yarn bombed” street trees: an urban, arty analog of a park bench under a tree canopy. “When we did the place-making workshop last spring, people said the intersection of Conkling and Eastern had ‘too much brick, too much brown, and not enough light,’” says Kari Snyder, director of community programs for the SECDC. “They also wanted a place that was comfortable and shaded. The idea is to make the space a place where people will enjoy hanging out,” Snyder adds. The benches, which are circular, encourage face-to-face conversation, and the yarn-bombed trees are dressed in crocheted pieces made by local residents. The yarn bombing is more than a pretty alternative to the monochromatic, gritty hues of the street corner, says Marlo Jacobson, co-owner of Threadquarters.

Jacobson likens the crocheted yarn bomb to “crochet and knit graffiti,” an art form. “Its practitioners create stunning works of art out of yarn, then weave them into public spaces   creating vibrancy and stimulating community dialog,” she says. “We have already seen the transition taking place. People have been very respectful of the trees, and when we were putting up a new tree, we heard many thank yous and positive comments from people.” Snyder notes that the benches are temporary, but will remain installed at least through the end of the summer.  “Permanent benches are a lot more expensive, but if the residents like the space, we will work on funding permanent seating,” Snyder says. She adds that the SECDC plans to   host public events—such as an ice cream social— in the space this summer. “If residents have ideas for events, we want to hear them,” she says. Snyder believes that the new space is already having a positive impact on the neighborhood. “The moment we put the benches out, a woman sat down to read the paper. That’s great. That’s what we want. It’s all about the user experience.”

Baltimore Harbor takes after Boston by ERIK ZYGMONT

EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Baltimore Harbor’s Healthy Harbor Report Card grade of C- might sound surprisingly decent, but the Waterfront Partnership’s Adam Lindquist says that the higher-than-expected score can be mostly attributed to 2012’s low rainfall. “In 2012, we had about 34 inches,” said Linquist. “Forty-two inches is normal.” That 29-percent reduction in rainfall means there was less runoff in 2012 to wash pollutants into the water, he explained. Healthy Harbor Baltimore, which is a division of the Waterfront Partnership, put out the Healthy Harbor Report Card last week. 2012, Lindquist said, was the first year that the organization had enough data to assign a grade to the harbor. The grade of C- indicates that the Harbor has met water quality standards 40 percent of the time. “The C- is actually the ecosystem grade,” Lindquist said, adding that the same system—which analyzes the water’s suitability for marine life—is used to grade the Chesapeake Bay as a whole. Water quality indicators such as chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen, water clarity, total nitrogen and total phosphorus factor

into the Healthy Harbor Report Card grade. A chlorophyll measurement can tell researches if there is too much algae, which may eat up the dissolved oxygen in the water, leaving little left for the plants and animals that depend on it. Water clarity allows sunlight to reach plants, and it allows fish and animals to see their prey. Nitrogen and phosphorus measurements indicate the degree to which stormwater has washed pollutants into the water. Lindquist noted that the Healthy Harbor Report Card grade does not take bacteria levels into account, which, he said, are “very localized and disperse very quickly when they go into the water.” Though not part of the grade itself, bacteria levels are recorded in the Healthy Harbor Report Card document, which is available for download at www. healthyharborbaltimore.org. While overall Balitmore Harbor overall failed to meet the swimming standard for bacteria at least 60 percent of the time, the water near the eastern tip of Fort McHenry met the standard 100 percent of times tested. Canton Harbor, according to the Report Card, met the standard between 80 and 90 percent of the times it was tested. A portion of the Canton waterfront,

BALTIMORE GUIDE 3

roughly from Captain James Restaurant to Safeway, also met the standard 80 to 90 percent of the time. Lindquist noted that the Linwood outfall—roughly where S. Linwood Ave. would meet the water—has the highest bacteria output in Baltimore Harbor. Lindquist said that bacteria comes from sewage, sewage spills and leaks, and pet waste. “Up to a quarter of it comes from pet waste,” he said. The Healthy Harbor Report Card is a joint venture between Healthy Harbor Baltimore and Blue Water Baltimore, which goes out and samples the water. According to Blue

Water Baltimore’s website, a grant from the Abell Foundation has allowed the organization to extend sampling to 30 sites in the Harbor. Lindquist said that it is possible for a big city on the water to have a healthy harbor. “One of the cities we have looked to is Boston,” he said. “They really buckled down and set an 18-year goal. Now they have annual swim meets in the harbor.” “It’s not easy, but it can be done,” he said. Healthy Harbor Baltimore would like to see Baltimore Harbor swimmable and fishable by 2020. First District Councilman James Kraft has also endorsed this goal.

Gallery: Building recovered from 2011 earthquake CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Zannino-Baker plans to host Gary Helton, author of “Highlandtown” and “Highlandtown Revisited” of the “Images of America” series to offer his expert insights on the historic Baltimore neighborhood. Early exhibits will feature Highlandtown landmarks and personalities such as city councilman Dominic “Mimi” DiPietro and the Grand Theatre. Zannino-Baker has a special affinity for the neighborhood in which she grew up. “I remember Eastern Ave. having every single thing you could possibly imagine,” she says. “There were shoe shops, dress shops, music shops, and sports shops. Even though they weren’t the couture things on Charles St., the high-high end, they were still very, very lovely.” In that vein, two purveyors of sweet treats—Elaine’s Brown Sugar and Charm City Italian Ice—will be opening in adjacent commercial space in the Highlandtown Gallery building.

there will be something decadent,” Zannino-Baker says. Elaine’s Brown Sugar is a cupcake bakery that may already be familiar to Baltimore’s baked goods connoisseurs. Revelers at the Highlandtown Wine Festival already got a preview of Charm City Italian Ice, as owner George Myers attended with his pushcart. “I am excited at the opportunity to be a part of the community,” Myers says. “The concept for Charm City Italian Ice is to be a cozy and comfortable place for the community to come and enjoy our Italian ice and unique treats. I believe we will have something to satisfy everyone’s cravings, young kids and adults alike.” Inside Highlandtown Gallery itself, guests will serve themselves High Grounds coffee while taking in the art. The building, which will house the three businesses downstairs plus two apartments, one on the first floor and one on the second, has come a long way. In August 2011, 248 S.

earthquake. Zannino-Baker said that the bricks from the neighboring building fell onto her building, collapsing the roof on the Gough St. storefront that will house Charm City Italian Ice. The front part of the structure was bowed out as well.

Since I'm Italian, I'm going to give you a real hug and kiss. “This building was the one that was in the paper and on the news all the time,” she says. Even without the earthquake, the building required extensive renovations. ZanninoBaker has converted what was originally seven apartment units upstairs into two spacious units. “We’re helping the community by having fewer cars on the street,” she says. When she acquired the building, the facade was brick on top of formstone on top of brick. “The bad-taste police were not here to give a ticket to whoever did that,” ZanninoBaker jokes. Now the facade has been stripped to the original brick, and round-edged trim— ”Baltimore bullnose”—adorns the doorways. Zannino-Baker, principal of Magnolia Designs LLC, has been an interior designer for two decades. She has placed the work of local artists into her designs, and she also serves on the board of the Highlandtown Arts District. The Highlandtown Gallery is about to launch a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo.com. The goal is to raise $10,000, which, Zannino-Baker says, goes right to the artists. When artists rent exhibition space for three months, they get a month free, she says. A donation of $10 earns the giver a chocolate “baci,” or kiss. “Of course, if I’m in here, since I’m Italian, I’m going to give you a real hug and kiss and say thank you,” ZanninoBaker says.

Big things ahead for local graduate by ERIK ZYGMONT

EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Shahem McLaurin, 19, a resident of Curley St. and a graduate of Friendship Academy of Science and Technology, is still trying to decide whether to study biology or political science. For McLaurin, politics equals fun. “I was always that boring little kid that sat in the house watching presidential debates and stuff,” he said, adding that he got very involved in politics as a student at FAST. “Ever since I came to FAST, I’ve been involved in student culture,” he said, “making it better and building it up.” But biology is fascinating, too, and could lead to quick, secure and viable employment. McLaurin is involved with the National Aquarium’s Henry Hall Program, a special program for students interested in the life sciences and the environment. “I’ve learned a lot about different creatures and how they build up a whole ecosystem and help people,” McLaurin said. “That’s amazing to be able to use that stuff to help people. For a driven and inquisitive young man, choosing a major is a tough decision, but least he won’t have to figure out how to pay for his education. Mclaurin has been chosen to receive an $80,000 scholarship from Legg Mason through the Baltimore Community Foundation. “These young adults have worked so hard to get where they are,” said Auburn Bell, Legg Mason’s Director of Corporate Philanthropy. “In a lot of situations, they’ve overcome incredibly difficult personal challenges to get there.” Auburn added that “it’s really important for leadership to stand up with these kids and walk with them.”

Last week, McLaurin and and the 60 other Maryland students who earned BCF scholarships were honored for their achievements at a Ravens-sponsored luncheon and ceremony at M & T Bank Stadium. Retired Ravens kicker Matt Stover urged the youngsters to seize the opportunities they had been given, with a caveat: “Don’t let it be just about you,” he said. “There’s no purpose in serving yourself, but there’s purpose in serving others.” Stover, whose outdoor field goal percentage of 84.9 is the highest in NFL history, said that before he came to this realization, fear of failure was “paralyzing.” “Oh my gosh, what will happen if I miss?” said Stover. “It took a lot of work, it took a lot of time, and it took a lot of failure to wake up my eyes and see that this opportunity wasn’t about all me.” Once he started focusing on his teammates, Stover said, his “kicking really took off,” and “a 51-yard field goal became an opportunity.” Stover offered a quote from Thomas Edison: “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” McLaurin will work through the summer at the Canton Safeway before leaving for St. Mary’s College. In his spare time, perhaps he’ll re-read Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, which he recommends to everyone because “it’s just the best series ever,” or he may head out to the movies with friends. McLaurin is proud to graduate from FAST. “I just wanted to reiterate that there are students at FAST that do good things for the community,” he said.

100 Screens for 100 Years on Highlandtown Main Street

Street Program came up with the idea for “100 Screens for 100 Years on Highlandtown Main Street.” The project was funded through a grant by the Baltimore Community Foundation. “That grant is for screens to appear along businesses Eastern Ave. from East Ave. to Conkling St.,” says Amanda Smit-Peters, manager of Highlandtown Main Street. “What could be a more appropriate art form for Highlandtown businesses than painted screens along Eastern Ave.?” Last Wednesday, the Southeast Community Development Corporation, Highlandtown Main Street, Painted Screen Society, and local merchants had an unveiling of the Highlandtown Gateway Screens at the corner of S. Conkling and Eastern Ave. above the pawn shop, Southeast Jewelry & Loan. The Gateway Screens, painted by Anna Pasqualucci and John Oktavec—grandson of William—show iconic and whimsical Baltimore images such as the Baltimore Orioles, beehive hairdos, steamed blue crabs, and ravens in the beehive. The seven screens spell out the word “WELCOME.” “They are about Highlandtown, our homes, and our history,” says Smit-Peters. Highlandtown artist and screen painter Monica Broere gave screen painting lessons to the kick-off attendees, and Baltimore County screen painter Bruce Barrett, who shows his work at the Northpoint Flea Market, told attendees about his work, some of which was on display. “I’ve been doing airbrush work for 20 years, but on the screens I use a paintbrush and I paint the screens like they are cavases,” Barrett says. About 50 of the 100 painted screens will be installed in time for a June 15 tour—on

that day, the Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival will be held at the Creative Alliance, and will feature a free walking tour of the painted screens on Eastern Ave., says SmithPeters. “Our goal is to have the other 50 installed by the end of June,” she adds. Several local business and organizations are involved in the 100 Screens Project, including Spartan Pizza and Cardinal Chiropractic, both on Conkling St., says Smit-Peters, who adds that one of her favorite local merchant screens is on the Liberty Tax Building on Eastern Ave. “It shows how a painted screen can tie a building together,” Smit-Peters says. “But honestly, it doesn’t end with 100,” she adds. “This is just a kickoff. We really would like to see more people learn the art form. We want to inspire artists. I think 100 is just the beginning. More painted screens are definitely coming to Highlandtown.” Says Neff: “That’s wonderful. Painted screens have been a part of East Baltimore for a long time and I very much hope they will continue to be.” Several screen painting events are coming up within the next few weeks. On June 20, at 7:30 p.m., the Creative Alliance will show the film “The Screen Painters,” which debuted at the Patterson theater 25 years ago. It is double billed with “Little Castles,” a film about formstone in Baltimore. Film tickets are $12 ($7 for Creative Alliance members). On June 22, at 9:30 a.m., Eff will lead the Painted Screens Pilgrimage, a bus and walking tour of Baltimore screen painting landmarks. Tickets are $35 ($30 for Creative Alliance members).

Uptown Cuts brings classic and cutting edge to Conkling Street by ERIK ZYGMONT

EZYGMONT@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

What are your specialties as a money. Everybody says that being a barber Who are your customers? is good money—yes it is—but if you do it We have every age, but most of them are barber?

I love doing designs [lines and shapes]. It’s all freestyle; everything comes out of my own mind. I don’t know what I’m doing until I’m done. I like it so much that people sometimes tell me, “Just a little line,” and I end up with a design on half their head! They love it. There are also a lot of people who like to How did you become a barber? keep it classic—that’s why I called my first When I was a little kid, I was never able to find anybody that could cut my hair right, shop Klassico. or at least the way I wanted it. So one day, when I was 13, I said to myself that I had to Describe your barbershop. We see the barbershop as a place where learn to cut hair. That’s when I bought my the customer can come and relax, for first set of clippers. I went to the barbershop and explained example, after work. We give customers a how I wanted my hair cut. The barber was head massage with a machine. A lot of really surprised by the way I explained it to customers see the barbershop as a “chill him. He asked if I was a barber. He said that spot.” That’s what we do—try to make the the way I explained things made sense, and customer as comfortable as we can. that I should be a barber. He did cut my hair What would you say to right, too! I asked him to show me how to cut hair; someone who wants to become he showed me all the basic stuff. I messed up a successful barber? The first thing? Buy some clippers! a lot of people’s hair, but I ended up learning. But, you can’t do it just because of the That’s what it takes. The Baltimore Guide has a new neighbor. Uptown Cuts has moved in to 528 S. Conkling St., offering haircuts from the classic to the cutting edge. The Baltimore Guide spoke to Alex Simo, 26, who has been cutting hair since he was a teenager in the Dominican Republic.

just because of the money, you’re not going young, between 18 and 30. I always try to to be a good barber. You have to like it. A lot give everybody good hair, no matter their of people do it just for the money, and spend age, country, color or whatever. months and months and never learn right.

North Baltimore and midtown had Wallis Warfield Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. Now Canton has the Queen of Sheba, if only in dramatic mural form on the corner of Foster Ave. and Clinton St. Sheba, a new Ethiopian restaurant at the former site of Mojito, opened in early May, but work on its namesake mural began in April. The Queen of Sheba was a queen of Ethiopia, who, according to legend, founded the Solomonic Dynasty, a line of rulers who led Ethiopia until 1974. Nurlign Makonnen, who co-owns Sheba— and co-owned its predecessor, Mojito— decided that Canton had too many beer and burger bars. He opted to close his American restaurant and serve his native cuisine instead. “Ethiopian food is what we know,” says Makonnen, who is from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and has lived in the U.S. since 1999. Makonnen says Ethiopian food is unique among African cuisine. “Unlike most of Africa, Ethiopia does not have the colonial and culinary links to French and British culture. We have 3,000 years of history and trading with the Middle East and India. These are our culinary influences,” he says. You can definitely taste the Middle Eastern and Indian influences in the dal-like lentil and pea dishes, and in the spiciness of Sheba’s stews. Sheba’s menu is small. Sambusas, small lentil- or ground-meat-filled pastries, are the only appetizers. Main courses, many of which are meat-based, make up the rest of the eightdish menu. Ethiopian cuisine features many meatcentered dishes and many vegetarian ones as well. The main reason for this, says Makonnen, is fasting. “Religion is important in Ethiopia, and many Ethiopians are Orthodox Christians, which means they fast—no meat, no dairy, no butter—for about 150 days a year,” he says. The vegetarian dishes are commonly eaten during fasting days, he says. But don’t think that means Ethiopian vegetarian meals are austere. At Sheba, the vegetarian sampler, served on a 16-inch circular tray and meant to be

shared—is a standout. The sampler includes yellow split pea stew; red lentil stew; potatoes, carrots and cabbage; simmered collard greens; ground shiro beans in a sauce; and a cool tomato and pepper salad. The sampler is served with injera—a spongy, pancake-like bread, ideal for sopping up the juices from the stews. Made with both wheat and teff, an iron-rich Ethiopian grain, the injera is gray and tangy. It is both an accompaniment to the meal and an eating utensil. Sheba has its injera delivered fresh daily, although Makonnen says he hopes to eventually make it in house. Any of Sheba’s meat dishes—such as tibs (lamb sautéed with onion, pepper, garlic, and tomatoes) or key wot (a savory, tangy, dish of stewed beef with a spice-and-herb mixture called berbere)—would be a good accompaniment to the sampler. The key wot is served with a bland-but-cooling homemade cheese that marries well with the intensity of the stew. Sheba offers both Western and traditional Ethiopian seating at the small round baskettable called a mesob. Its small, low stools are quite comfortable. The restaurant has a full bar, but does not serve dessert. “Ethiopians are not that big on sweets,” Makonnen says. Sheba does offer Ethiopian coffee and Ethiopian honey wine called peg to end your meal, however. In addition, Sheba’s customers will soon be able to dine with the queen and her regal cohort. Makonnen says he plans to offer outdoor, mural-side seating on Clinton St. or Foster Ave. with tables and mesobs as soon as possible. Sheba is located at 3301 Foster Ave., 443-682-7618.

Growing Up In Canton By Roland Moskal, special to the Baltimore Guide

READERS’ CHOICE

Braunsweiger and cream cheese sandwiches When we look back at our childhoods and tell our stories, we tend to embellish on reality a bit. At least in the good stories. You have been warned. I’ll never forget lunchtime at good old Public School 230, or as we called it Canton. (The school is now Friendship Academy of Science and Technology, 801 S. Highland Ave.) To begin, the cafeteria was in the basement, a memorable location for two reasons. First, as we came down the stairs, we could catch a whiff of what was cooking. Second, it was the warmest room in the school . I lived (and still live) across the street from the school on Fait Ave. It would have been easy for both my brother Art and myself to go home for lunch, but because our mother worked, we stayed at school for lunch—and I’m glad we did. We brought packed lunches each day. My sandwiches were most often one of two selections: either summer baloney with mayo on white  or—believe it or not— cream cheese sandwiches, which I loved. My mom also made braunsweiger sandwiches which were fantastic with ketchup and butter. What we ate and where we ate it, and whose mom cooked what, could be a whole other article. Anyway, there we were in the cafeteria. After finding our assigned tables, we got in

line for our milk, which came in glass bottles and cost us three cents each, I believe. If you wanted chocolate you needed to be quick, because they ran out fast. On Thursdays, Barbecue Day, my brother and I would insist to our mom that we be allowed to buy our lunch. Does any reader out there remember lunch back then? In those halcyon days when the lunch ladies really cooked, and the food was served on real plates with almost real silverware? Wow! We really did not know how good we had it, did we? And of course when we were finished we had an orange dreamsicle—nothing like it, and only a nickel. Along with that we would buy a hard pretzel or a pretzel rod or two. The lunch ladies even baked. There were things like the cinnamon sticky buns which would put any modern bakery to shame. I attended Canton 230 from kindergarten through the eighth grade, and then moved on to Hampstead Hill—the old Patterson— for one year, and then out to Patterson on Kane St. Lunchtime was a good time. We kids ate what was served, and we enjoyed it—and, like me, lived to write about it. Roland would love to hear from anyone else with memories of the old neighborhoods.
