Cars in the park: a traffic jam of opinions BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Proposed modifications to Patterson Park to allow for more parking within its borders have community groups scrambling to understand what happens next. Last week, a drawing with the label “Patterson Park Parking Study” surfaced. It shows a loop road winding through three new parking areas, one approximately 50 feet west of the Virginia S. Baker Recreation Center with spaces for about 20 cars; one approximately 200 feet west of the rec center with spaces for 51 cars; and one adjacent to the “Casino” building accommodating about 22 cars. The drawing is dated Sept. 12 and labeled with the imprint of Hord Coplan Macht, a Pratt St. architecture firm. In a closely related development, the city Health Department indicated a decision to close Highlandtown’s John Booth Senior Center, according to a statement issued by First District Councilman Jim Kraft. The Health Department itself could not be reached for comment at press time, except for a brief statement: “The Baltimore City Health Department is committed to partnering with the Department of Recreation and Parks to work with the affected communities to ensure seamless transition of services for seniors.” Kraft said in his own statement that he had met last week with Dr. Barbot and Acting Recreation and Parks Director Bill

The meeting, according to Kraft’s statement, was called after Barbot made some decisions in reaction to the Health Department’s recent loss of “formulaic” federal funding, due to Baltimore’s shrinking population as indicated by the 2010 census. According to Kraft, those decisions include ending the adult daycare service that

takes place in the Casino, closing the John Booth Senior Center, and relocating the John Booth Center’s services to the Casino. Furthermore, the senior center services would be expanded to create “the City’s major ‘flagship’ east side senior facility,” according to Kraft’s statement.

Mr. Highlandtown’s clean hip hop cleans up in nationwide competition BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Though it’s been anything but smooth sailing, local hip hop artist Hector Rivera— a.k.a. Vietnam a.k.a. Mr. Highlandtown— has won a substantial number of contests in his life. The latest have been music related. His single “Rock For My City,” off his upcoming album, One Life to Live, won Reverbnation’s “Unite” ESPN Music Search. Sports fans tuning into ESPN’s college highlights during the month of October will hear “Rock For My City.” It’s an aggressive song, beat-wise, but Rivera’s “clean” hip hop is aggressively positive, not negative. In addition to putting his music on the air on ESPN, a contest also brought Rivera to Highlandtown in the first place, back in 1983. “My father hit the lottery and we moved here,” said Rivera, who had spent the first years of his life in a housing project in Brooklyn. His father, Hector Sr., was in the Merchant Marine, and in his port travels he got to know Baltimore enough to know that he wanted his family rooted here. Although

Hector Jr. still loves the place, living in Highlandtown wasn’t always easy for him in his younger days. “Growing up in the city, you have your ups and downs,” he said, explaining that he has gone through rough patches and gotten in some trouble in the past. One thing that pushed Rivera to change his life for the better was the birth of his daughter, Bianca. “After that, I got my stuff together,” he said. Since his daughter, he has had two sons—Hector and Markus—with the wife he has been with since age 17. Bianca is attending Cristo Rey Jesuit High School on a full scholarship. “Sometimes I get teary-eyed thinking about how my life was one way, and then it did a 360,” said Rivera. In 2011, Rivera erased negative messaging from his music and embraced the clean hip hop genre. Although he is shifting toward the stage moniker “Mr. Highlandtown,” his current name, “Vietnam,” stands for Victorious In Every Territory Never Assaulting Mankind. “When it comes to hip hop and rap, there are a lot of guys who get jealous easily,” he said. “I’m able to go anywhere—I can collab

with anybody.” Clean hip hop, Rivera explained, is “music that everybody can listen to. There’s no cursing and no negative messages in the songs.” He said that earlier hip hop—Das EFX and Digable Planets, for example—was relatively clean, but more hard-core rap came into play in the 1990s. Rivera said that positivity is crucial to him as he raises his children. “They come first,” he said. “I feel it’s my responsibility to push them as far as they can go.” Mr. Highlandtown is pushing himself at the moment, too. Posting another “win,” he will be featured on the back cover of Coast 2 Coast Magazine #31 (www.coast2coastmagazine.com). Hip hop listeners voted him their favorite. His single “Rock For My City” is available on amazon, iTunes, Spotify, and more— type in Vietnam and Rock For My City to find him. Mr. Highlandtown will perform on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Dark Horse Saloon in Canton. Doors open at 8 p.m. For more information—and links to his music—visit his Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ mrhighlandtown.

Police call for vigilance in Canton by Erik Zygmont EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Major William Davis of the Southeastern Police District advised citizens that a rash of burglaries Cambridge St. and Essex St. area. There had been seven burglaries in that area in the last three weeks fitting the pattern, Davis said at the monthly Fells Prospect Community Association meeting last Wednesday. Five of the seven burglaries were front entry. “They’re either getting in through a window or forcing the front door; some of them have even been unlocked,” said Davis, commenting that front-entry burglaries are abnormal. Furthermore, he added, the thief is not striking during the usual late-night to weemorning-hours timetable. “This guy is actually hitting us during our 3-11 shift,” said Davis. “It shows he’s brazen enough.” Electronics, laptops, and personal items like pocketbooks are being taken. “It’s more get in, get what you can carry out quickly, and get out,” Davis said. Davis said that police believe the thief is a white male between 25 and 30. “Be on the lookout for anyone who’s just walking through your neighborhood and looking at houses,” he said, adding that residents should call 911—not 311—to report suspicious activity. Davis also spoke about larceny from auto, the most common crime in the Southeastern District. He cautioned residents to not leave anything in their vehicles, including chargers—which indicate the presence of more expensive electronics, such as GPS units. He added that residents should also tell their neighbors to not leave objects in their cars, because it invites larceny from auto. “It’s like feeding the bears,” he said. “If the neighbors feed the bear, he’s going to come back, and he might eat you next time.” Davis said that thefts from automobiles are difficult for the police to track and organize because they are categorized with all other larcenies. He added that an effort is currently underway to make larceny from auto “its own crime,” which would make it easier for police to track incidents and recognize patterns.

Running out onto the field is not recommended

In last week’s cover story, “Highlandtown 8-year-old steals hearts at Orioles game,” a layout error caused the omission of a crucial paragraph. That paragraph explained that young Alyssa Jefferson “stole” second base in a sanctioned event sponsored by ESSKAY meats. A youngster is chosen to steal second at every Orioles home game falling on Sunday. Without that paragraph, some readers were led to believe that Alyssa simply ran

out onto the field of play as over-excited fans sometimes do. This is not the case, and we wouldn’t celebrate such an action. The Baltimore Guide regrets the omission. The complete story is available on our Web site, www.baltimoreguide.com. Also in last week’s issue, the headline for the other front-page article, “More building in East Baltimore: Butchers Hill,” would be more accurate if it had stated “More Building in East Baltimore: Washington Hill.”

Letter: Outdoor cans not for household trash To the Editor: We’ve been receiving complaints lately regarding overflowing corner city trash cans.

The effect of dumping household trash into city trash cans is that more litter ends up in the streets, gutters, and ultimately in the Inner Harbor. We ask the offending residents to consider that a majority of household trash is now “recyclable,” if not compostable. As such, though it requires one extra step, sorting

Traffic-calming improvements planned for Kane Street by Elaine Welkie SPECIAL TO THE BALTIMORE GUIDE

Since the formation of the organization back in 1990, the Bayview Community Association has been working to make traffic improvements to Kane St. to control the truck traffic that regularly rumbles by the homes, causing property-damaging vibrations. Some traffic calming measures were installed a few years ago, with the addition of bump outs that have provided parking for the residents of Kane St. a turning lane was also striped to help provide easy entry and exiting from the Anchor Square Shopping Center. Although these measures have assisted with slowing down the traffic, it is still a dangerous avenue for pedestrians to cross the street. Many senior citizens from Our Lady of Fatima Senior Housing and Patterson High SChool students, who regularly patronize the shopping center, take their lives into their hands when crossing. These concerns were shared with Council President Jack Young’s office during our Sept. 2011 community meeting. Young’s

assistant, Cailin McGough, regularly followed up with the city’s Department of Transportation, with some notable results. The Department of Transportation conducted a traffic study and decided that the best alternative for the city was to install a crosswalk at Kane St. and E. Pratt St., along with concrete medians to discourage drivers from using the turning lane for the shopping center as an extra lane for commuter use. Trees will also be planted in the medians as an additional traffic calming measure. The construction of these improvements is

scheduled to begin sometime this fall. We will continue to work with Manekin, the owners of the shopping center, to make good on their promise to install a traffic signal on Kane St. The Bayview Community also wishes to extend our thanks to Cailin McGough for her continued follow-up on this important safety issue for our neighborhood. This article and drawing first appeared in “The Bayview Community News,” the publication of the Bayview Community Association.

A reverse-angle remedy for Canton? by Danielle Sweeney DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Reverse-angle parking is scheduled to be implemented in the 900-1200 blocks of Clinton St. within the next two weeks, and the 2900-3500 blocks of Elliott St. within the next two to eight weeks, according to staff at First District Councilman Jim Kraft’s office. The reverse-angle parking is part of the Southeast Complete Streets program, which has been in development for three years. But will reverse-angle parking on these streets reduce the parking problems in Canton? The answer from those who live and work in Canton is a qualified yes—but reverseangle is only part of a solution to long-term problem. “Reverse-angle parking will improve quality of life,” says Debbie Meister, who lives near the intersection of Potomac and Pratt streets and works as an agent at Long & Foster in the Can Company. Meister says that parking behind the Can Company is predominately two-hour permit parking; she—and everyone else—has a hard time parking on Boston St. She believes that reverse-angle parking, no matter where in Canton its located, would be beneficial to everyone in the long run. “It’s really a matter of working with what you’ve got. I know it’s been great for my neighborhood,” says Meister. Darryl Jurkiewicz, president of the Canton Community Association, agrees, but emphasizes that how the reverse-angle parking is implemented will make all the difference. “We’ll get the most new spaces if it’s

implemented on long, uninterrupted blocks [without driveways or curb cuts or alleys],” says Jurkiewicz. “For example, within the past year, reverse-angle was installed in the 3200 block of Toone St., and I believe we got 50-percent more spaces as a result.” Jurkiewicz adds that one challenge, albeit minor, that comes with reverse-angle parking is that some people find it aesthetically unattractive. “They think it doesn’t look good, “ he says. “I don’t get it. Parking is parking.” He notes that reverse-angle is only one solution to Canton’s and the Southeast’s pervasive parking problems. Another is more public transportation options in Canton, so fewer people will have to use their cars in the first place, especially for short trips. “We’ve been working on getting a Charm City Circulator route in Canton for a while now, but it’s all about funding,” Jurkiewicz says. Another solution is simply Canton building more parking, “but the city says it doesn’t own any land in the area that is not park land—and they can’t afford to build a structure. At least that’s what they tell us, anyway,” says Jurkiewicz. “And we’re sure not giving up green space for parking,” he adds. Councilman Kraft is scheduled to give an update on reverse-angle parking in Canton at the next public Canton Community Association meeting on Sept. 25 at United Evangelical Church, 3200 Dillon St., at the corner of S. East Ave., beginning at 7:00 p.m. The doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Center…based upon its re-examination of the available parking.” He said that he believes some are portraying the issue as a “seniors vs. the Patterson Park community conflict.” “This would be a ruse and an attempt to divide our community, pit neighbor against neighbor, and portray us as parochial obstructionists,” Kraft wrote. He said the issue is simple: “Protect Patterson Park—no more cars, no more parking, no more paving!” Vondrasek was out of office at press time, but Gwendolyn Burrell, a spokesperson for the Department of Recreation and Parks, forwarded a brief statement saying that there is currently “no budget for vehicular improvements in Patterson Park.” “Should enhancements be made,” the statement continued, “they would be designed and scheduled to coincide with improvements to the Virginia S. Baker Recreation Center over the next one to two years. We understand the concerns expressed by members of the community about proposed improvements to Patterson Park and take them very seriously.” Kraft has scheduled a meeting for this week with the heads of the community organizations around Patterson Park. Public meetings on the issue will follow.

al.” Ray Lubinski, a user of the John Booth Senior Center and president of its advisory council, said in a letter that the Casino building could be a viable place to relocate the John Booth Center’s services. “Moving from an ‘open space’ building where there is no place to hold programs that are not out in the open to a place such as the [Casino] would be wonderful,” he wrote. However, Lubinski added, the Casino is too far into the park for seniors to park and walk from Baltimore St. In a telephone interview, he noted that many of the 114 registered users of the senior center have oxygen tanks, walkers, and canes. “My main concern is that we have a place to go,” Lubinski said. “We know we’re going, but we don’t know where.” Kraft’s statement says that during his meeting with Barbot and Vondrasek, some “points became clear.” “The Department of Recreation and Parks, long committed to the same goals as we with regard to traffic and parking, seems to be reconsidering that commitment,” Kraft said, “and the Department of Recreation and Parks is reviewing  its decision  to  renovate and expand  the Virginia Baker Recreation

Who pulls the strings in Fell’s Point? Service award winner Mark Walker by Erik Zygmont EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

If, on a stroll past the Broadway Pier, you have seen a group of children laughing hysterically as one marionette puppet clobbers another, then you have seen Fell’s Point aficionado Mark Walker in action. Walker, who doesn’t actually live in the Point, has been putting on his “Punch and Judy” show since the 1980s, carrying on a Baltimore tradition that started in April of 1897. “Punch and Judy” is a traditional puppet show that was established in England ages before it came to Baltimore. In a similar vein to the fairy tales of old, it was once a very black comedy, and it gradually morphed into something geared toward children. During the course of the show, the largenosed hero, Mr. Punch, overcomes a series of adversaries and irritates his wife, Judy. The old-timey-ness of the production— perhaps the fact that it has been shown for hundreds of years by countless puppeteers, many of whom have passed on—lends it an almost supernatural air. The marionettes themselves have exaggerated facial features, and could be described as grotesque. It’s In search of

hilarious by day, but you wouldn’t want to leave the silently smiling Mr. Punch gazing down from your bedroom dresser at night. Baltimore’s “Punch and Judy” tradition began in 1897 with James Edward Ross, a.k.a. Professor Rosella. (“Punch and Judy” puppeteers are always addressed as “Professor.”) Around 1932, George Horn (Professor Horn) became a go-to “Punch and Judy” puppeteer in Charm City. A young Mark Walker watched Professor Horn perform in Patterson Park in 1963, and the rest, as it is now cliché to say, is history. Horn transferred his knowledge and skills to Walker in the 1980s, and the two remained close friends until Horn’s death, at 98, in 2004. In honor of his mentor, Walker also performs under the name Professor Horn. More information on Walker’s “Punch and Judy” activities is available at www. hornspunch.com. Walker’s fellow Fell’s Point activists and residents chose him as recipient of this year’s Selfless Community Service Award, an annual recognition established by resident Jack Trautwein in 2003 and awarded on Sept. 11 in conjunction with a remembrance of that day’s events.

“I was just shocked, just like everybody else,” said Walker of the day the World Trade Center was attacked and almost 3,000 people died. Although he now lives in Harford County, Walker grew up on the 500 block of N. Kenwood Ave. His grandmother lived on Bank St. “I considered Fell’s Point my home,” he said. “I used to go there all the time.” In the 1970s, Walker returned to the Point as an adult, visiting bygone taverns such as Turkey Joe’s. His visits became more frequent in the 1980s, and he became entrenched in the goings-on at Fell’s Point over the past

few decades. Walker’s involvement in Fell’s Point goes well beyond his “Punch and Judy” show. Over the years, he wrote 66 articles for the “Fell’s Pointer” newsletter. His intimate knowledge of the local taverns and his interest in the dozen-or-so now closed movie houses provided ample material for his articles. Though he has retired from writing for the “Fell’s Pointer”, he still delivers the periodical on a volunteer basis. He has been active in the Preservation Society and the Fell’s Point Main Street program. He was also heavily involved in the rehabilitation of Fell’s Point’s recreation pier. He was simply doing what interested him and pursuing things he cared about. “I was kind of surprised they picked me [for the Selfless Community Service Award],” said Walker. “You do stuff, and you never think about if anybody is paying attention to it.” Walker works for Johns Hopkins in the Bond Street Wharf building. He hopes that his volunteer activities in Fell’s Point make up for the fact that he takes up a parking space during the day.

HOW DOES PURCHASING A HOME COMPARE WITH RENTING?

The two don't really compare at all. The one advantage of renting is being generally free of most maintenance responsibilities. But by renting, you lose the chance to build equity, take advantage of tax benefits, and protect yourself against rent increases. Also, you may not be free to decorate without permission and may be at the mercy of the landlord for housing. Owning a home has many benefits. When you make a mortgage payment, you are building equity. And that's an investment. Owning a home also qualifies you for tax breaks that assist you in dealing with your new financial responsibilities- like insurance, real estate taxes, and upkeep- which can be substantial. But given the freedom, stability, and security of owning your own home, they are worth it.

HOW DOES THE LENDER DECIDE THE MAXIMUM LOAN AMOUNT THAT CAN AFFORD?

The lender considers your debt-to-income ratio, which is a comparison of your gross (pre-tax) income to housing and non-housing expenses. Non-housing expenses include such long-term debts as car or student loan payments, alimony,

or child support. According to the FHA,monthly mortgage payments should be no more than 29% of gross income, while the mortgage payment, combined with nonhousing expenses, 4 should total no more than 41% of income. The lender also considers cash available for down payment and closing costs, credit history, etc. when determining your maximum loan amount.

HOW DO I SELECT THE RIGHT REAL ESTATE AGENT?

Start by asking family and friends if they can recommend an agent. Compile a list of several agents and talk to each before choosing one. Look for an agent who listens well and understands your needs, and whose judgment you trust. The ideal agent knows the local area well and has resources and contacts to help you in your search. Overall, you want to choose an agent that makes you feel comfortable and can provide all the knowledge and services you need.

HOW CAN I DETERMINE MY HOUSING NEEDS BEFORE I BEGIN THE SEARCH?

Your home should fit way you live, with spaces and features that appeal to the whole family. Before you begin looking at homes, make a list of your priorities - things like location and size. Should the house be close to certain schools? your job? to public transportation? How large should the house be? What type of lot do you prefer? What kinds of amenities are you looking for? Establish a set of minimum requirements and a 'wish list." Minimum requirements are things that a house must have for you to consider it, while a "wish list" covers things that you'd like to have but aren't essential. CONTINUED ON PAGE 19

RENTALS AND REAL ESTATE

Finding your home.. CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN DECIDING ON A COMMUNITY?

Select a community that will allow you to best live your daily life. Many people choose communities based on schools. Do you want access to shopping and public transportation? Is access to local facilities like libraries and museums important to you? Or do you prefer the peace and quiet of a rural community? When you find places that you like, talk to people that live there. They know the most about the area and will be your future neighbors. More than anything, you want a neighborhood where you feel comfortable in.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I'M FEELING EXCLUDED FROM CERTAIN NEIGHBORHOODS?

Immediately contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) if you ever feel

excluded from a neighborhood or particular house. Also, contact HUD if you believe you are being discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, nationality, familial status, or disability. HUD's Office of Fair Housing has a hotline for reporting incidents of discrimination: 1-800-669-9777 (and 1-800-927-9275 for the hearing impaired).

HOW CAN I FIND OUT ABOUT LOCAL SCHOOLS?

You can get information about school systems by contacting the city or county school board or the local schools. Your real estate agent may also be knowledgeable about schools in the area.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT ABOUT COMMUNITY RESOURCES?

Contact the local chamber of commerce for promotional literature or talk to your real estate agent about welcome kits, maps, and other information. You may also want to visit the local library. It can be an excellent source for informa-

tion on local events and resources, and the librarians will probably be able to answer many of the questions you have.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT HOW MUCH HOMES ARE SELLING FOR IN CERTAIN COMMUNITIES AND NEIGHBORHOODS?

Your real estate agent can give you a ballpark figure by showing you comparable listings. If you are working with a real estate professional, they may have access to comparable sales maintained on a database.

HOW CAN I FIND INFORMATION ON THE PROPERTY TAX LIABILITY?

The total amount of the previous year's property taxes is usually included in the listing information. If it's not, ask the seller for a tax receipt or contact the local assessor's off ice. Tax rates can change from year to year, so these figures may be approximate.

WHAT OTHER TAX ISSUES SHOULD I TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION?

Keep in mind that your mortgage interest and real estate taxes will be deductible. A qualified real estate professional can give you more details on other tax benefits and liabilities.

IS AN OLDER HOME A BETTER VALUE THAN A NEW ONE?

There isn't a definitive answer to this question. You should look at each home for its individual characteristics. Generally, older homes may be in more established neighborhoods, offer more ambiance, and have lower property tax rates. People who buy older homes, however, shouldn't mind maintaining their home and making some repairs. Newer homes tend to use more modern architecture and systems, are usually easier to maintain, and may be more energy-efficient. People who buy new homes often don't want to worry initially about upkeep and repairs.
