mustachioed man-in-the-moon. “It’s so pretty at the night when everything is all lit up,” said Michelle. The deck boasts a variety of potted plants, including an herb garden with dill, basil, parsley, thyme, and oregano. A wooden trellis with vines offers shade above a sofa and coffee table. Before moving to the county and having a daughter, Michelle and her husband enjoyed the city bar scene in the 1980s and 90s. The

extent of their outdoor recreation, she said, was sitting outside at the Bay Cafe. Roof decks on homes were a rarity back then. “If you did see it, it was the rich people,” Michelle said. The Wassmuths sometimes see interesting things from their perch. Shortly after New Years, their teenaged daughter Foley reported seeing a broken window on a parked car below their home. The car alarm was going off.

Now a fixture in Baltmore, roof decks give sanctuary to residents, business to contractors, and a selling point to realtors. Whether homeowners build them to provide outdoor space, increase home value, or keep up with the Joneses, they are here to stay. For the Wassmuth family, who recently moved back to the city after a long hiatus in Baltimore County, a roof deck was a must. “I needed this to be my sanctuary,” said Michelle Wassmuth atop her Canton roof. “There’s no other outdoor space.” She added that while she loves her deck, it’s no replacement for a yard. “You have to be in the right frame of mind, and I love the city,” she said. Michelle said that she goes up on the deck in the morning to have coffee, and in the evening to relax. Her girlfriends often call, she added, to “come over and lie out on the deck.” The Wassmuths’ deck offers views of the harbor to the south, and Johns Hopkins to the west. Just above the rooftops to the north, the “Natty Boh Man” winks at them like a

“And... that was the first time I called the cops,” said Foley, who grew up in Baltimore Country. Michelle said they once noticed a woman passed out in the hot morning sun on another nearby deck, no doubt sleeping off the effects of some kind of celebration. “Thank God she wasn’t dead,” said Michelle. “We saw her move.” For Ray Spalla and Connie D’Argenio, a CONTINUED ON PAGE 19

Property a hot ‘target’ for retailers by erik zygmont EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

As rumors continue about a Target store and a Harris Teeter grocery store coming to Canton, landowners say they are closer to a deal with undisclosed retailers, and hope to begin site preparations by the end of the summer. At his annual constituents’ breakfast on June 16, First District Councilman James Kraft said that plans for a Target, a Harris Teeter, and Michael’s Arts and Crafts along Boston St. were signs of an economic turnaround. “Ladies and gentlemen, there is a turnaround, at least in the city of Baltimore,� said Kraft. “He’s not supposed to name names,� said Neil Tucker of Chesapeake Real Estate Group, which owns the 325,000-squarefoot property on Boston St., adjacent to Merritt Athletic Club. “What I can tell you is that we’re working with a national discount department store and a full-service grocery store.� Tucker said that his organization has not finalized a deal with anyone at this point. “We are in active negotiations with many retailers,� he said.

Tucker said that the site will likely house about 30 different retailers, from big-box stores to “junior boxes� to small shops. He said he expects a “wide variety of tenants in multiple categories.� “The response has been pretty exceptional, given the state of the economy and retail in general,� said Tucker, adding that interest in the site has been strong “from the day we announced we had purchased the site, a little over a year ago.� According to Tucker, Chesapeake Real Estate Group is “hopeful to be starting construction by the end of the year.� In addition to the retail stores, the development will include several road additions and improvements, Tucker added. He said a new street, dubbed “Boh-Donnell,� will serve as a bypass from Boston St. to O’Donnell, and that motorists won’t have to cross the railroad tracks when heading west. Tucker said Eden street will be lengthened to head all the way south to Boston St., where it will enter the shopping center at a new traffic light. The long-term traffic improvement plan, he added, is a Red Line stop coming to the area.

Patriotic project Lillian Crowley of Lombard Hardware has been making mosaics for about 12 years. Her husband, Ken, does custom stained-glass work, including the distinctive stained-glass transom windows seen on homes throughout the city. Lillian uses the leftovers for her mosaic projects.

New gourmet market offers fresh local treats at 2001 Fleet Street by danielle sweeney DSWEENEY@baltimoreguide.com

Claudette Torbey offers a sample of chocolate-covered espresso beans. “Sampling. It’s my favorite part of going to the grocery store. You like to eat as you shop, don’t you?” says the owner of the new Fleet Street Market, a gourmet grocery that recently opened at 2001 Fleet St. Torbey was also offering samples of tomatoes from Calvert Farms and snickerdoodles from Hamilton Bakery.  The shop, still in its soft-opening phase, is already bustling with hungry customers. The 1,100-square-foot store, with its bright, fresh-painted storefront, has the look of a boutique grocery and the vibe of a community market. That’s the combination Torbey is striving for. The Chicago transplant and former lawyer has always been involved in community work, and she wants Fleet Street Market to be a place where people come not only to shop, but also to hang out, drink coffee, and have conversations. “A grocery store is as much about community as it is about food and convenience,” she says. Torbey, who lives in Butchers Hill, opened the market because she needed a high quality grocery store she could walk to. “I talked with some of my neighbors, and they wanted the same thing,” she says. Fleet Street Market focuses on locally and regionally sourced food products, including pasture-raised eggs and pastured, free-range chickens.

Its produce and herbs currently come from a farm in Cecil County. This week’s selection includes rhubarb, asparagus, fennel, squash, tomatoes, and peppers, among about 20 offerings. The market’s grocery inventory reads like a list of who’s who in the Baltimore-area food scene—from Cherry Glen Farm cheeses to Infused Spreads jams to Vann’s Spices and Zeke’s Coffee. Torbey also has fresh bread delivered daily from Hamilton Bakery, a well-regarded artisanal bakery in Northeast Baltimore. The current selection from Hamilton includes baguettes, fig-anise-walnut loaves, and its famous focaccia—sold whole or by the wedge. “We are also the only grocery store that carries Ostrowski’s of Washington St. sausages,” Torbey adds with pride. While Fleet Street’s focus is on natural foods, is also stocks staples like sugar, bacon, and hot dog buns, and goodies, like chocolate bars and grown-up sodas, Torbey clarifies. It also sells a growing variety of prepared foods, such as sushi from Sticky Rice in Fells Point. “We will soon have brewed and iced coffee, and a weekend baker will make scones and cinnamon rolls for us. For now, we’re adding arugula-turkey-and brie sandwiches and chopped salads,” Torbey says. Fleet Street Market’s neighbors are excited to have a high-quality, locally focused market close by. “I’m thrilled to have a more diverse retail mix,” says Meghan Rockwood, manager of

day since it opened. Daley says it’s great to have a shop close by for lunch and snacks. “This week, I had Sticky Rice sushi and Tate’s macadamia nut cookies. They are pure evil—so delicious.” Torbey plans to have a grand opening for the store on Saturday, July 14. For now, Fleet Street Market is open seven days a week, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. during the week, and 9 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on weekends. It will soon have wifi and a few tables.

A high school diploma symbolizes a new lease on life for local adults by erik zygmont EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

Two alumni of the South Baltimore Learning Center see their newly-attained high school diplomas as major milestones in their quests for better lives. “It’s been a rough life, but it’s good now,” says Daryl Witherspoon, a Federal Hill resident who successfully passed the general equivalency diploma exam in Dec. 2011. Now 48, Witherspoon stayed in school until 11th grade, when he dropped out and drove a truck to help his mother. He fell into drugs, and remained immersed in the lifestyle, dealing to support his own habit, for

the next 30 years. He spent time in and out of prison and in bad situations on the street. Things came to a head when, faced with a possible 20-year prison sentence, Witherspoon had some time to “sit still and think about my life.” “I was truly tired,” he says. A judge gave him an opportunity to attend a rehab program rather than go to jail. He spent a year at South Baltimore Station learning how to take control of his life, and he attended classes at the South Baltimore Learning Center to get his high school diploma. “Now you have to have (a diploma) for any little job,” Witherspoon says, adding that he feels significant self-satisfaction “just to finally complete something in life.” Witherspoon says that he felt fully prepared for the GED exam. Teacher Sandi Myrick-Nelson, “Miss Sandi,” exercised his weak point: mathematics. “They test you and test you, to make sure you’ve gotten it,” Witherspoon says. When he finally took the exam, he not only passed but earned a high score. “It shocked me,” he says, but he adds that he did work very hard to prepare for the test. Now, Witherspoon is attending to the loose ends—old traffic citations, debts, child support—that were complicated and made worse by his old life. “Those things aren’t going anywhere,” he says. “If you’re not really prepared to deal with it, it’s going to send you back out there.” Currently employed as a cook, he hopes to earn his commercial driver’s license. Like Witherspoon, Geri Watts, 32, grew tired of drugs and hard living. “I was tired, fed-up, done,” she says. “I wanted to show my kids that it’s never too late.”

Although Watts “had everything” growing up, her mother was in and out of prison, and her father was a functioning addict. Eventually her family fell apart, and Watts, too, ended up on the streets, working as a dancer and abusing drugs. When she got sober and stopped dancing, she found that she wanted more from life. Watts was working at a gas station in Tennessee, and her boss encouraged her to get her GED. Watts moved back to Baltimore to be with her children. It took her two tries to complete the program at SBLC. The first goaround, her father died and she faced other family issues. She credits her teacher for keeping her ontrack. “She was always there to keep me going, and to keep me fighting for my goals,” Geri says.

She took the GED exam twice, and in February, she passed the math section she needed to receive her diploma. “I just made it,” she says. Today, Geri is looking at several career possibilities. She may open a buy-sell-trade shop with her fiance, or she may look for avenues into computer tech or even nursing. “I’ve got a pretty good bedside manner,” she says, noting that she cared for a few of her family members in their last days. Sonia Socha, executive director of SBLC, says that a high school diploma is crucial in today’s world. “That’s become the case more and more because of the landscape of the job market today,” she says, adding that 110,000140,000 adults in Baltimore do not have diplomas.

Crime down in Southern District

by erik zygmont EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

At last Thursday’s Southern District Police Community Relations Council meeting, Deputy Major Ian Dombroski announced that violent crime had declined 20 percent in the Southern District. Comparing year-to-date figures from June 21, 2011, with June 21, 2012, Dombroski said that the homicide rate had fallen 69 percent in the Southern District, with 13 homicides last year and 4 this year. Robberies dropped too, from 216 up to June 21 last year to 157 this year. Aggravated assaults fell 10 percent, from 291 to 262. “They’re working hard and they’re getting results,” Dombroski said of Southern District police officers. Lieutenant Steve Nalewajko introduced his drug squad to attendees, which officers said had contributed to the lowered crime in the area. The council also recognized the Southern District Officer of the Month, Roy Roberts. “He works the midnight shift, when most of us are sleeping,” said Dombroski. “On almost a nightly basis, this officer catches someone breaking into a car or house.”

Dombroski added that Roberts had arrested a suspect on a warrant for second-degree burglary. The arrest was considered serious enough that the suspect was not granted bail. The Southern District also announced the retirement of Lieutenant Joann Voelker, a 29-year officer. “It’s been an enjoyable experience serving the Southern District,” Voelker said. “I’ve met a lot of good people.” Jack Rehmert, vice president of the community relations council, said that Voelker worked well with bouncers in Federal Hill night sports. Instead of roughing up troublemaking patrons, they called the lieutenant, he said. “They work for her; she works for them,” he said. “They all know her by name.”

BIRDS HOUSE:

CLOSER FOR HIRE BY ANDY MINDZAK

Sealing a 2-1 Baltimore victory and earning his 22nd save Sunday against the Washington Nationals, Jim Johnson took sole possession of second place in saves behind Chris Perez from Cleveland, who has 23 saves. In the process, Johnson has given Oriole fans hope at the end of games. Johnson earned his 22nd save in Baltimore’s first 72 games, putting him on

pace for 49 this year. That number would have been more had Johnson not spent time in the hospital towards the end of April. For the season, JJ is 1-0 with a 1.10 ERA to go along with those 22 saves. Oddly enough, he has more saves than strikeouts (20 punch outs to 22 saves), but whatever gets the job done, and Buck Showalter always prefers substance to flash. Johnson’s hot start got me thinking. When was the last time Baltimore had a closer with at least 40 saves? Randy Myers pulled that off in 1997, saving 45 games. Wait, what

else happened that year? Oh yeah, they made the playoffs. Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 22 saves already tie the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high mark of 2011, which was accomplished by Kevin Gregg (although Johnson has earned his with much less stress). The last Oriole closer to hit 30 saves was George Sherrill back in 2008. Sherrill had 31. What I find amusing and what keeps me watching baseball is the element of surprise. Baltimore brought in Mike Gonzalez in 2010 to be their closer, and we all know how that experiment turned out. They then went after Gregg during the 2011 offseason, and, although he did lead the team with those 22

When was the last time Baltimore had a closer with at least 40 saves?...Wait, what also happened that year? Oh yeah, they made the playoffs. saves last year, his high wire act wore thin, and now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another arm in the pen. Baltimore already had their closer, they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it yet. Johnson has been their setup man for a few seasons now, but has shown his worth as the closer they have been looking for all along. What makes matters even more interesting is that Baltimore had tinkered with the idea of making Johnson a starter as recent as this past offseason. Good thing they left him in the pen! If Baltimore has any chance to make the playoffs, they will need Johnson to keep shutting teams down at the end of games, something he has done with ease this year.

Grads: Difficult to earn diploma as an adult

June Specials

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4

“It’s a problem that’s not talked about in the education arena as much as it should be,” Socha says. She stresses that it is very difficult to earn a high school diploma after dropping out. The two-day GED exam, she says, is structured so that those who pass it have demonstrated the same mastery as the top 60 percent of high school students who graduate. Socha says that about 1,000 students are participating in SBLC’s programs citywide, with over half of those at the main site at 28 E. Ostend St. in Federal Hill. The organization raises about 45 percent of its costs in private donations every year, Socha says. Private donations have paid for a full-time career employability counselor, and for part of the volunteer outreach coordinator’s salary. The volunteer coordinator organizes the many volunteers that help keep SBLC running, Socha says. As the learning center continues “preparing people for the pipeline of getting into the workforce,” it looks toward another challenge—preparing students for the computerized GED exams that will debut in 2014, Socha says.

The Baltimore Guide 19

Contractor: roof decks need serious maintenance CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

roof deck was an absolute necessity for city living. Moving from a home on 2.5 acres to the harbor-side Ponte Villas townhouses off Key Highway, the couple said that the outdoor space afforded by the deck was a prerequisite for the purchase. “I’m able to keep my gardening going, keep my hand in it” said Ray. “I didn’t want to give that up, and now I’ll never live out of the city again.” As with much of the new construction surrounding the harbor, the townhouses are built side-by-side with common walls and all units sharing the same roof. Every unit has its own roof deck, partitioned off from its adjoining neighbors with short walls. Ray has a flowering pear tree, a cherry tree, and a fig tree in pots on the deck, as well as various grasses and flowering plants. He also keeps an herb garden on the balcony deck below. The couple has a spectacular view of the harbor that includes the iconic Domino Sugar sign. “At night it’s fantastic,” said Connie. Ray is up on the roof every day, watering plants. Directly in the hot sun, each pot

needs two to three gallons of water per day, he said. He is installing a drip irrigation system to make his life easier, but he still expects to spend plenty of time on the roof. Connie travels a lot for her job, but she loves to come up on the roof on weekends for dinner, cocktails, or the hot tub. Contractor’s Perspective Tom McCleary has been building roof decks in Baltimore for over 10 years. He built the Wassmuths’ deck. “I’ve probably built 1,500 decks in the city,” he said. McCleary said that there are a couple steps homeowners can take to ensure that their deck offers years of enjoyment. First, stain the deck. Even treated lumber shrinks a lot in the sun, McCleary said, and if the wood is not protected with stain, “the deck will start to implode.” “Solid deck stain is the way to go,” he added, noting that, while it may not look as nice to some homeowners, a coat can last four to five years. The sun can burn away cheap stain in a year or less, McCleary said. So many decks deteriorate because staining is such a tedious and difficult job.

Ray Spalla enjoys this view every morning.

“Once (homeowners) do it once, they don’t want to do it again,” said McCleary. Those who do not want to stain under any circumstances can have their deck built with a composite material rather than real wood, but the cost will be higher, he added. Second, be sure that the decking is screwed down, rather than nailed. Even ring nails lose their hold on the floorboards before long, according to McCleary. Third, have a new and long-lasting roof. Having a roof deck complicates access to

the roof itself for repairs, McCleary said, though he does build the decks with access space underneath. “I try to convince my customers to get a new rubber roof before we start the deck,” he said. Lastly, get a contractor who does quality work. “The biggest advice—ask the person to see decks they’ve built in the city,” said McCleary.
