BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM The saga of the Fort Avenue Bridge reconstruction continues. Since August, Fort Avenue, the main road to and from Locust Point, has been closed so the bridge can get badly needed repairs. However, this also makes it difficult to get in and out of the neighborhood.

Patterson Park Panteras play for fun—and are undefeated BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Tim Almaguer pointed to the floor of the recreational center at Patterson Park, where his U-14 soccer team was practicing. The players, members of the Patterson Park Panteras, were practicing hard, but smiling and enjoying themselves at the same time. You could see the fun they were

having in their eyes. “I don’t coach to win,” Almaguer said. “I coach for this kind of stuff. If you create this, you create winning.” But for this season at least, winning has become a habit. The Panteras, in their sixth season since Patterson Park took over the team from Our Lady of Pompei in 2006, are playing in the tough Central Maryland Ask about our Gold Buying Parties!

Seen these robbery suspects? This car? Police want tips Police detectives in the Southeastern District Detective Unit are seeking information relating to an armed robbery that took place in the 700 block of S. Wolfe Street on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 11:30 p.m. Among the property taken in the offense was the victim’s credit card, which was used minutes later at the BP gas station located at Central Avenue and Fayette Street. Surveillance cameras there captured images of the suspects and their car (see

photos). One suspect is described as a dark-completed thin black male, possibly in his teens, standing 5’8� with short black hair and a striped shirt. The other suspect was described only as a black male. Anyone with information on these suspects or this incident should contact Det. Tony Clarke in the Southeastern District, 410-396-2429. You may remain anonymous when leaving information.

WANTED-Police are seeking three suspects (above) who committed a robbery on the night of Sunday Oct. 23, and then used the victim’s credit card in a nearby gas station moments later. They wre driving the car shown at left. Anyonymous tips are welcome. More photos are on the Guide’s website, www.baltimoreguide.com. Photos courtesy of the Baltimore Police Department

Indians in industry Exhibit at BMI focuses on contributions

Accent

of Native Americans to city

SHAPING THE CITY-Lumbees got a toehold in the city’s industrial development and worked at GM, as independent contractors and more. Photo courtesy of the BMI and the BAIC BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Baltimore is known as a port of entry, and a settlement area for: (a) the Polish (b) the Ukrainians (c) the Hispanics (d) the Germans

(e) the Lumbee Indians The answer, of course, is (f) all of the above. And for those who didn’t realize that (e) was as much a part of the Baltimore landscape as crabs, National Boh and white marble steps, it’s time you made tracks for the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

The BMI’s new exhibit, “Hard Workin‚Äô Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry,” details the history of the Lumbees, who migrated from North Carolina to Baltimore City. Like so many others before them, the Lumbees sought employment in local industries with the hopes of a better life, more opportunity and a better education for their children. “Not everyone really knows there are so many Native Americans in Southeast Baltimore,” says Ashley Minner, guest curator of the exhibit and an official at the Baltimore American Indian Center. Thousands of Lumbee Indians settled in Southeast neighborhoods, most of them in a 64-block area from Broadway to Patterson Park. According to Minner, many worked in drywall, sheetrock, and other construction trades, while other Lumbee Indians worked in factories, sewing plants or were self-employed. “A lot of people worked at General Motors,” Minner adds. Lumbees are predominantly Southern Baptist, she notes, “and church is just a huge part of the culture. It always comes up.” The exhibit includes original artifacts, contemporary arts and crafts, and photographs from Baltimore‚Äôs Lumbee Indians. It will run until December 31. “People are going to get a lot truer picture of the Indian community,” says Minner. “This is all so positive.” The exhibit opened November 1 to coincide with Native American Heritage Month.

According to Minner, there is a lot more to Native American history than what many know about reservations out west, or the stories children have heard about the first Thanksgiving. “Everyone has this image of what a Native American does or says or acts like,” she laughs. “But here we are: we’re regular Americans who drive cars and speak English. And we still exist. We want people to hear our stories, and that’s what this exhibit is. It’s all about the stories.” Note: The exhibit, “Hard Workin‚Äô Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry,” will run at the BMI, 1415 Key Highway, until December 31. Regular admission charges apply. Info: www. thebmi.org.

other things. At 7:30 a.m. Joe represented the Hampstead Hill Association at the opening of Hampstead Hill Academy’s new pre-K wing. Then he had to run--he had a lot of things to do that day. On Friday about noon Joe was walking along Eastern Avenue toward the Creative Alliance when a cyclist, going pretty fast on the sidewalk, plowed into him. Joe went flying. To the cyclist’s credit, he stopped and called 911. But when staffers ran out of the Creative Alliance to help, the cyclist jumped on his bike and sped away. Still on the sidewalk. Cyclists complain about motorists not looking out for them. Motorists should look out for the little guy, they say. The cyclists are right. But they need to look out for their version of the little guy-that is, the pedestrian--too. Cyclists need to stay the hell off the sidewalk. Period. There are bike lanes all over the city. Use them.

Joe, who is 67, had surgery on Saturday to set his broken femur. He’s in for a good long rehab. Here’s hoping he makes it to the opening of the Highlandtown Train Garden Dec. 3--he’s been working on the project since March. It would be a real pity if he missed the opening. • More on traffic. Can we all agree that motorists and cyclists should obey traffic signals? According to the State of Maryland they should, but apparently most of them missed the memo. In the last week I have nearly been run down at Conkling and Eastern, Broadway and Fleet, and Fort and Lawrence—each time while walking with the signal. A friend often has to dodge traffic--four-wheeled and two-wheeled--at Ann and Aliceanna. You can make a right turn on red, but you are supposed to stop first. And while you are stopped, you’re supposed to look at the crosswalks around you, not at your iPhone. It’s a law, not a serving suggestion.

D&D at Pratt gets an “A� Smart, lite fare in bookstore-style cafe

BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

One of the pleasures of going to those great big mega-bookstores in the mall is sitting in the cafe with a book or a magazine and taking your time over a double skinny latte or green tea or whatever the drink of the moment is. The Enoch Pratt Free Library has torn a page from the mega-bookstores’ business plan and partnered with a popular downtown deli to open a full-service cafe at the Southeast Anchor Library in Highlandtown. David and Dad’s is the popular downtown deli. It’s family-owned and specializes in serving freshly made baked goods, sandwiches, salads and wraps to the downtown ofďŹ ce and courthouse crowd. David and Dad’s opened the Pratt Cafe in October at the Southeast Anchor Library. The cafe is compact and inviting, and it serves good, healthy fare. Well, except for the potato chips, but if you don’t want chips you can have a banana. Up to you. The coffee is good, but the specialty drinks are great, and far cheaper than the multinational corporate venti lattes down Canton. A large mocha, very chocolaty and with a double shot of espresso, will cost you $3.85 and keep you running all

morning. There’s also cappuccino, latte, chai and fancy tea, and you can get any of them iced during the summer. The smoothies are divine. Try the pina colada one. Very coconutty, pineappley and good. No rum, alas, but you can always get one to go. The strawberry banana ones are also delicious. Everything that goes into the smoothies is fresh. And—as long as you have a lid on the drink, you can take it into the library. Sandwiches and salads are a no but drinks with lids are OK. So you can relax at a table or an armchair with a good book and a drink. On to lunch: the salads are fresh and crisp, the sandwiches and wraps are delicious, and the prices are right. The most expensive sandwich is the shrimp salad for $9.50, and it’s worth the splurge— large fat shrimp steamed just right and tossed with mayo and plenty of Old Bay, piled high on white, wheat or rye. My favorite sandwich, though, is the chicken salad on marble rye ($5.95). The chicken salad is moist and well seasoned, the leaf of romaine lettuce is crisp and bright green, and it makes a very tasty and ďŹ lling sandwich. Or you can get roast turkey—real roast turkey, not the cold-cut loaf—with swiss or cheddar on different types of bread. It’s also available as a wrap. There’s also

Liz at David &Dad’s Cafe serves up coffee, lite fare and conversation.

roast beef, and ham, and all of it is the real stuff, not a cold cut. Liz, the greeter, barista, server, manager, cashier and business strategist of the little cafe, says the soup tureen is coming in soon in time for the cold weather. The Pratt Cafe has its own entrance, right at the corner of the building by the main steps. It’s open 8:30-3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and open during some evening programs. We had a chicken salad, a veggie wrap with hummus, a smoothie and a latte for lunch. The tab came to $20.62 including tax. Notes: South Baltimore mourned ďŹ rst

the loss of Vince Rallo, the longtime proprietor of Rallo’s, the little corner diner at Fort and Lawrence, and then they mourned the closing of the cafe itself. The mourning period is over for the cafe at least—it’s reopened as Big Matty’s Diner. Matt Gurczynski was a daily customer at Rallo’s, and he and his wife, Laura, went in, did a little sprucing up, and reopened last week. The whole staff stayed on. “We did it to honor Mr. Rallo and so people don’t lose their jobs,� said Laura. Big Matty’s is open daily, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. The phone number’s the same: 410-7277067.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

Southeast

In-laws behaving badly

MECU Credit Union

Family fight erupts over Facebook post This week’s Neighborhood Watch was compiled by Mary Helen Sprecher.

Robbery

S. Broadway, 200 block, November 4, 11:07 a.m. A woman at a grocery store noticed a customer trying to force open the cash register. She asked him what he was doing. He replied “Bitch,” but offered nothing else coherent. She told him she was calling the police, and he fled without taking anything. S. Decker Avenue, 700 block, November 1, 3:10 a.m. Police were alerted to the report of a man who had been robbed and was chasing suspects. The man told police he had been out when the suspects approached him and said, “Give us what ya got or we’ll put one in ya,” while brandishing a gun. One suspect, described as fat, became excited and screamed, “Put one in him! Put one in him!” They took his wallet and fled with him in pursuit. Finally, one threw the wallet at him, but there was no money inside it, the suspects apparently having removed $200 cash. Two of the three suspects were later located by a K-9 officer and one gun was also recovered. Police will follow up. Albemarle Street, 200 block, October 31, 7:30 p.m. A man told police an armed suspect had carjacked him and stolen his gold 2006 Pontiac. N. Curley Street, 200 block, October 30, 9 p.m. A man told police a man had pointed a gun at his face and said, “Give me your wallet,” at which point, the man told him he did not have anything and the suspect ran away. N. Kenwood Avenue, 200 block, October 29, 11:28 p.m. A man told police a female suspect, whom he described as black with short red hair and white sneakers, had taken his wallet, cash and phone by force, and fled.

Aggravated Assault

S. Broadway, 700 block, November 4, 11:25 p.m. Police saw a car stopped in traffic with the driver, a woman, involved in what looked to be a heated discussion with a man. The woman told police she had been driving when the man crossed the road in front of her, then became irate and approached the car, and began to assault her. She sprayed mace at him in self-defense, she said. The man told police the woman had nearly struck him and that he had approached her car to ask why, and she had sprayed mace at him. He told police he did kick the vehicle. Police will follow up. E. Fayette Street, 2400 block, November 3, 3:23 a.m. Police responded to a report of an assault and found a woman bleeding from a cut to her face. She told them a man and a second woman had been arguing and she had tried to separate them and the man had slammed the door on her, causing the injury. She told

police the man had told everyone in the area not to answer police questions about the incident. The man would not respond to police requests to turn around to be handcuffed, and was eventually taken into custody forcibly. S. Wolfe Street, 500 block, November 2, 11:10 p.m. A woman told police she had been assaulted by a former co-worker whom she knew only as “Margarite,” and whom she was unable to describe. The two had been drinking together prior to the incident. The first woman told police the assailant had already gone home because her boss had made her. She then became uncooperative with the investigation and refused to participate further. Anglesea Street, 400 block, November 2, 4:47 p.m. A woman told police she had gotten into an argument with her mother in law; the mother in law had allegedly become angry over a picture the woman had posted on her Facebook page. The mother in law struck the woman in the face with a pair of metal tongs, causing injury, and was arrested. N. Rose Street, 200 block, October 30, 6:36 p.m. A man told police he and his father in law had gotten into an argument over money, and that the father in law had stabbed him in the back. The father in law was arrested. S. Conkling Street, unit block, October 14, 12:50 a.m. A man told police, “I was stabbed by a man by the name Chauncey.” An argument had started between the two when one accused the other of taking his phone. “Chauncey” was later arrested and found to have a ziplock bag containing white powder on his person.

Larceny

Aliceanna Street, 1400 block, November 5, 4:50 p.m. Someone removed a bag container UnderArmour clothing after it was attached to a pole outside a restaurant. S. Highland Avenue, 1100 block, November 4, 11:27 a.m. Someone stole six pairs of ladies underpants from a drawer. A suspect was named to police. Eastern Avenue, 3800 block, November 3, 1:30 p.m. A woman took raw shrimp from a seafood display. When asked when she was going to pay for it, she replied, “When I am ready,” and left with it. She was arrested shortly afterwards. E. Fayette Street, 3300 block, November 3, 3:10 p.m. A man was arrested for trying to leave a convenience store with 5 energy drinks. He could not outrun police despite the energy drinks, however, and was arrested. Anglesea Street, 1200 block, November 1, 8:30 a.m. A man told police someone had picked his pocket, taking $1,200 without his knowledge. Want more? You know you do. Go to www.baltimoreguide.com.

FEATURING: NEWS AND EVENTS FOR THE GREEKTOWN & BAYVIEW NEIGHBORHOODS

Pumpkin pie and Baklava? Sure, if you’re in Greektown by JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@baltimoreguide.com

Greektown is as the name implies, a neighborhood where a lot of Greeks live. Many of them are first-generation—that is, they were born in Greece and emigrated here. The second generation speaks Greek fluently, and almost none of them have converted to the American diet of burgers, fries and ice cream. Most Greek families enjoy a diet that is heavy on fish and shellfish, fruits and vegetables, and low on red meat. Olive oil, which is unsaturated and has beneficial antioxidant effects, is just about the only fat used for cooking. Red meat usually comes in the form of lamb, and desserts are for feast days. That’s the Mediterranean Diet, renowned for its beneficial cardiovascular effects, and Greeks have been enjoying it for oh, about four thousand years now. It wasn’t until recently that physicians— that’s a word derived from Greek—realized just how good it is for you and started prescribing it to people with cardiac problems and people who don’t want to develop cardiac problems. But for most people of Greek heritage, it’s just dinner.

brought sausage to the stuffing here in Baltimore, I had been thinking that maybe the Greeks have a contribution all their own. “Oh, yeah, sauerkraut,” said Jason. “We always have sauerkraut.” The Greektown CDC has a couple of happenings for the holidays. On December 11, they’re hosting Ed Ciesielski, a

local author who wrote a killer-thriller that’s based in Greektown. The Guide will have an interview with Ciesielski closer to the event. And starting around the first of the month, Greektown CDC will sponsor a holiday door-decorating contest with prizes from neighborhood restaurants and businesses. Stay tuned.

So it’s natural for Americans to wonder—what do Greek Americans do for the most Yankee of holidays, Thanksgiving? Visualize the iconic Norman Rockwell painting with the grandma presenting the giant roast turkey on the platter. In a Greek household, would that be an octopus? Or a great big rockfish? Jason Filippou, who is the executive director of development for the Greektown Community Development Corp., grew up in the neighborhood and has a large extended family in and around Baltimore, and he seemed like a logical person to ask. “Turkey,” he said. Turkey? “And maybe a little lamb,” he added. “Mashed potatoes, cranberries and stuffing,” he went on. “Pumpkin pie for dessert.” What, no baklava? Baklava is that delicious little dessert with crushed nuts and layers of crisp pastry, drenched in honey and spices. “Well, sure, there’s baklava,” he said. “The baklava will be homemade. The pie’s likely to be storebought.” Just as the Germans introduced sauerkraut as a side dish and the Polish

Wednesday, NOVEMBER 9, 2011

Veterans Day numbers are dwindling, but every year they come to the Canton waterfront to honor their dead. They fought in battles over Inchon and Pusan and the Naktong River, names that do not resonate with the public like Normandy and Anzio and Iwo Jima. The Korean Conflict, as the U.S. government euphemistically called it, was fought very shortly after World War II and not too long before the U.S. first became involved in Viet Nam. The battles fought between June, 1950, and July, 1953 make up what is now called “The Forgotten War.” But believe it: like every other war before or since, no one who fought in that war has ever been able to forget it. Vincent Krepps was 19 when he and his twin brother, Richard, landed in Korea as newly trained members of the 82nd AntiAircraft Artillery Battalion. Vincent drove a light tank. Richard drove a halftrack. The 82nd was placed with the Second Infantry Division to provide fire support. They were fighting with the leftovers of World War II—tanks, trucks, guns, uniforms, even their meals were World War II surplus. “We were eating C rations that were six or more years old,” said Vincent. “The equipment was not good enough. We did not have the proper equipment to fight the war.” The Krepps boys, and three friends with whom they grew up in small town Lynnwood, Pa., weren’t drafted. They enlisted. One of the major reasons they enlisted is that with war industries winding down, and surviving troops coming home from World War II, jobs were very scarce. The twins, by steadfastly refusing to be separated, managed to stay together all the way from enlistment to basic training to specialist training at Fort Lewis, Wash. to stepping off the rustbucket troop ship in Pusan, South Korea, straight into fierce action. Vincent made it back. Richard did not. After two weeks of battle, Vincent’s tank and Richard’s halftrack were both out of commission. In mid-September the Army lent Richard another unit to drive. It was the first time the twins had been separated for much time. Richard was wounded a week later and sent to a hospital in Japan to recuperate. Shortly after that, Vincent was wounded and sent first to a hospital ship, and then to the same hospital as Richard. The Krepps twins missed each other by a matter of days. Vincent was released from the hospital at the end of November and made his way back to his unit near Inchon. The news there was bad: many in his battery, including the battery commander and several sergeants, had been killed or taken prisoner during its retreat from Kunu-ri, North Korea. And Richard was missing in action. The Krepps family would never know

exactly what happened to him. Vincent made his way back to Essex, Maryland, where his parents had moved, and finished out his enlistment at Fort Meade. In 1951, a Pennsylvania newspaper printed a picture of prisoners of war. Richard was in the picture. It raised the family’s hopes for quite a while. “I saw the gleam come back to my dad’s eyes,” said Vincent. “The boy he had once told bedtime stories to was coming home.” The war in Korea raged on through 1951 and 1952, and still no word from Richard. Finally, in April 1953, the sides exchanged POWs that were very ill. Richard was not among them. While other families received letters from POW camps, the Kreppses did not. Their hope slowly faded. Vincent Krepps, who now lives in Towson, is still searching for word of his brother’s last months. He went along on a Department of Defense recovery mission to North Korea in 1998, the second group of Americans to travel there. “I was walking in his footsteps,” he said. In 2001, Vincent went to China. “I talked to them but there was no word.” His mission has become more urgent as memories fade and old soldiers pass away. Vincent, now 80, has written a book, “One Came Home,” about their war in Korea. “I did it to keep the war alive and keep my brother alive going into the future,” he said. It takes a while for Vincent to mention that he received one of the United States Army’s highest honors, a Silver Star, for valor during the battle at the Naktong River in September 1950--just a couple of days after stepping off the troop ship. “It was our first battle,” he said. “I don’t make too much of it. We were just doing a job.”

Sports Soccer season: For Patterson, over and out

14 THE BALTIMORE GUIDE

BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM It was an unbelievable finish. It just didn’t work Patterson’s way. Patterson’s boys soccer team, deadlocked at 2-2 with Aberdeen in the second round of the state playoffs, committed a foul which gave the Eagles a free kick. The kick missed, and it looked like the Clippers would be able to clear the ball, like they had been able to do for most of the game when being pressured. But the ball remained in the center of the box. Aberdeen put the ball in the back of the net with just over two minutes remaining to go ahead 3-2.. Patterson desperately tried to put in the equalizer but was unsuccessful as Aberdeen left the Clippers’ home turf, ending their season last Tuesday. “It was unfortunate we gave up the free kick in that situation,” Patterson coach Adam Trifiro said. “The No. 1 thing I was thinking about as soon as it happened is immediately try to move past it and get our guys forward to try and tie it in the closing minutes.” The loss ended a great run from Patterson’s seven-man senior class, which finished their careers with a 40-8-2 record and four city championships. Patterson had its hands full from the start of the game, giving up five shots to an attacking Aberdeen squad before sur-

rendering a goal on the Eagles’ sixth try. In the first half, Aberdeen took nine shots compared to Patterson’s five. But Patterson connected for two goals on its five first half shots. The first came shortly after Aberdeen scored from junior midfielder Cyprian Ekegwo. Ekegwo skied in the air to head a cross from sophomore Yoppe Kalasa into the top right corner of the goal. Before the first half ended, sophomore forward Josue Cruz lofted a deep shot into the back of the net to put the Clippers up 2-1. But the Aberdeen assault continued in the second half. The Eagles got two goals on 12 shots in the following period while keeping Patterson from many scoring chances. In total, Aberdeen outshot Patterson 21-9. “Our biggest thing was we did not do a good job controlling the ball through the midfield and giving us an opportunity to challenge their defenders,” Trifiro said. “We got stuck in a lot of one on one situations.” Following the game, Trifiro singled out each senior and told them to keep their heads held high. “They work hard, they’re dependable,” Trifiro said. “Any coach would have been lucky to have the opportunity to work with them. We’ll definitely miss them.”

In short: Seasonal playoff games Digital Harbor (7-3)

First round opponent: North Harford (8-2) Where: North Harford High School When: Friday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. About North Harford: The Hawks have a potent offense that’s put up at least 28 points eight times this season. The only times the 3A North Champs haven’t, they lost. Digital Harbor’s strength has been its defense, which has held teams to an average of 10.2 points this season (including four shutouts).

Dunbar (8-2)

First round opponent: Southside (5-5) Where: Poly High School When: Saturday, Nov. 12 at noon About Southside: Southside snapped a three game losing streak with a win over the National Academy Foundation to get into the playoffs as the 1A South’s 4-seed. Dunbar won the division and will look to continue the momentum it established after beating Patterson 32-0 last Friday.

Dunbar’s line is force of nature BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM All aboard, The Train has arrived. Topping over 1,000 collective pounds, the Dunbar offensive line doesn’t see too many teams that match up against them. Adding to the size advantage, the Poets’ line is playing its best entering the 2011 playoffs. The Train, what the Poets linemen call themselves, paved the way for 202 total rushing yards in Dunbar’s 32-0 win over archrival Patterson last Friday. It didn’t matter who was running behind The Train. Nine different players had the opportunity to tote the ball behind the big boys up front. “It’s about being nasty, flying off the ball and having no mercy for your opponent,” junior lineman Dariz Hill said. “We fly off the ball 24/7 and have no mercy, nonstop.” Dunbar coach Lawrence Smith said the win over Patterson was the line’s most complete game of the season. Penalties were at a minimum and execution was near flawless. “We had a good week of practice and this is what they wanted to do,” Smith said. “We finally put it all together.” Senior offensive lineman Michael Carter, Jr. said the line came together in Dunbar’s 18-14 loss against Poly. Though the final score wasn’t on the Poets’ side, Dunbar dominated the line of scrimmage offensively against the Engineers. Even though they lost, Carter said the momentum from that performance has since carried through. “We had a good push,” Carter said.

“We wanted to keep that momentum running and keep pushing.” The win over Patterson was gratifying for the seniors. The Poets had dropped the previous two games to their biter rival and will graduate on a winning note. “The previous two years we lost,” senior lineman Joshua Davis said. “This year, we weren’t taking failure.” Dunbar made its first scoring drive look easy. The Poets scored in just three plays, with running back JaQuan Holt scoring a 14-yard touchdown. “Ever since we scored the first touchdown I knew we had the game,” junior lineman Malik Jones said. “They had their heads down low already.” Fullback Charles Brown was the main beneficiary of the Poets’ offensive line, as he churned out 86 rushing yards. The running game’s success opened up quarterback William Crest’s play in the passing game. Crest threw for 98 yards and two touchdowns. Both of those touchdowns were thrown to senior receiver Deontay McManus, who finished with 50 yards and receiving and 21 yards rushing. Senior lineman Rodney Ginnage said most teams they come against don’t have the size to compete with The Train in the trenches. “They can’t match up,” Ginnage said. “We’re big and fast.” Hill and Jones will be the only two returning starters on Dunbar’s offensive line next season. Hill said it’s his job to keep the line performing at its best. “I have to keep The Train running,” Hill said.

BIRDS HOUSE: BY ANDY MINDZAK Dear Mr. Angelos, I hope this note finds you well! I am writing as a concerned fan. I heard you brought in Dan Duquette to replace Andy MacPhail as president of baseball operations. While I think that is a brilliant move, I have just one question for you: Can you please let him do his job? I’ve never really asked you for much, but this one time I am asking you to let him get the Orioles pointed in the right direction, a direction we haven’t seen since 1997. It’s not like my request is that off the wall. I’m not asking for your first born or a million dollars or even free tickets. I’m just asking you to let Duquette to come in and do what he does best: run a baseball team. Yes, I know he hasn’t been in the majors since he was fired by new Boston Red Sox ownership in 2002, but he was the main reason that team broke their long curse. “But I thought Theo Epstein

D.J.

was the GM when Boston won,” you ask? Technically he was the active GM when they won, and yes, Epstein made some decent moves, but the core of that team was built by Duquette. Duquette traded reliever Heathcliff Slocumb to the Seattle Mariners for Jason Varitek and Derek Lowe and then he traded Tony Armas and Carl Pavano to the Montreal Expos for Pedro Martinez in 1997. He signed free agents like Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon, and Tim Wakefield. He was also responsible for drafting Kevin Youkilis. “But didn’t Theo bring in Josh Beckett”, you say? Yes, he sure did. He traded away Anibal Sanchez and some guy named Hanley Ramirez—both players signed and developed by Duquette—to get Schilling and Mike Lowell. That’s the same Hanley Ramirez who is now one of the best players in all of baseball with the Florida Marlins. MacPhail made a few good moves of

his own, such as the trade that brought in Adam Jones and Chris Tillman from the Seattle Mariners for Erik Bedard, along with the trade that brought in J.J. Hardy this past winter, but it’s tough to tell how well he would have done if you had stepped back and allowed him to do his job. You are a brilliant litigator, Mr. Angelos. Please stick to that and let the baseball minds work on the Orioles. Because when it comes to baseball, you don’t have the tools of the lowliest Legal Aid attorney. Case in point: Albert Belle. Another case in point: Sammy Sosa. You don’t want us to go to the jury with that, do you? We plead with you, Mr. Angelos, to let Dan Duquette do what he was brought in here to do. He turned around a team that had not won a World Series in 86 years, so turning around a team in Baltimore that hasn’t won a World Series since 1983 should be cake for Duquette.

Adam Jones, who should have won a Gold Glove this year along with Matt Wieters and Nick Markakis, was an Andy McPhail find. (Todd Olszewski/ Baltimore Orioles)

Panteras soccer Lutherville/Timonium 4-3, Fallston 5-1 and Maryland Sports Unlimited 5-2. The players, most of which are from Highlandtown, are pleased with their start to their season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing good so far, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re undefeated,â&#x20AC;? said 13-year-old Noe Villalobos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an incredible coach. We practice and we love playing.â&#x20AC;? The Panteras feature kids from around the world in places such as Trinidad & Tobago, Mexico, Honduras and Bosnia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great melting pot,â&#x20AC;? Almaguer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of kids with different backgrounds and different countries that come here and often time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time they get to meet different kids and play on the same field and become friends.â&#x20AC;? The success the Panteras have experienced this fall stems from earlier success in the CMSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring 8-on-8 league. The Panteras finished second this past spring with just one loss. A lot of the players joined the Panteras due to word of mouth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I first started playing soccer when I was 8,â&#x20AC;? said Jonathan Aldana, member of the Panteras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friend got me in this team four years ago. I liked it because it helped

me out because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten me much better.â&#x20AC;? Some of the Highlandtown kids played neighborhood soccer with each other and therefore had a chemistry on the field before joining the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what good about this team,â&#x20AC;? Almaguer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of these kids know each other either from the neighborhood or from this team for many, many years. You see that in the way they play. They communicate more, they pass more and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bonding as a team. Quite frankly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing so well.â&#x20AC;? Almaguer, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an assistant soccer coach at Bryn Mawr School, said the players had skill coming in. It was a matter of getting them to learn the structure of soccer, such as strategies and alignments on the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We communicate more,â&#x20AC;? Villalobos said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We pass the ball more and we have good teamwork.â&#x20AC;? There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any structured leagues in Baltimore City, which is one of the many reasons Almaguer put the Panteras in the CMSA. With the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning ways, Almaguerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considering putting the group in the A league next season. Right now, Patterson Park only offers a

LOCUST POINT on down the point. BGE crews worked through the night to repair the main, a process that is complicated by the need to go house to house and individually turn off gas service—a safety measure—while the line is repaired. After the repair, crews will need to revisit every house to turn the service on again. “This is the latest thing,” said Karen Johns, the “Bridge Lady” who agitated for more than a decade to get the reconstruction project going. “Yes, it’s inconvenient, and there is a lot of mess and dust and noise, but I don’t care as long as I get my bridge back,” said Johns. She said the natural gas odor was so strong on Monday that she stayed inside. “I would advise everyone not to light a cigarette,” she said. Monday evening, after crews shut off the gas and the odor dissipated, she ventured down to take a look at the work. She said that BGE crew members shooed her off the walkway on the north side of the bridge. The walkway is currently closed to pedestrians at Decatur Street. The south walkway is still open. BGE announced that it could start restoring gas service to about 100 homes and

The BGE release noted that there were roughly 100 houses and businesses on the east side of the main break that had not yet had their gas service turned off because BGE crews could not get into the buildings Monday night. Crews cannot begin work on the main till service to all the buildings has been shut off. BGE announced that if crews could not get into the buildings by late Tuesday afternoon, then BGE would work with the police and fire departments, and a locksmith, to get in to turn off the gas. “We recognize the inconvenience that this natural gas outage is causing the residents and businesses in the area and are working as quickly as possible to repair the main and restore service,” said Jeannette M. Mills, senior vice president and chief customer officer for BGE, but “we cannot sacCrews worked through the night to repair the main break.

Murder in Greektown: IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

My break-through novel, circa 1944-1983, set in a World War II backdrop, is loaded with unpredictable twists and turns that takes place largely in Greektown and features police drama and detective work from the Southeastern Precinct. Long-time residents of the area will recognize many past familiar sights: Click’s Pool Room, the Garden Bar and bakery, Baltimore Market, Benny’s Seafood, the New Nemo movie theater, Illona Restaurant, just to name a few. More action is generated when firefighters from Forty-One Engine on Conkling Street battle a death-defying blaze on the Pratt Street Wharf based on the McCormick Spices fire catastrophe on December 31, 1969. Numerous Baltimore landmarks are also found in this fast-paced and sometimes shocking story of suspense, mystery and extreme murder. Recommended for Mature Readers Only

Thomas W. Lewald

They say memories are golden, Well maybe that is true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I needed you, A million times I cried. If only love alone could have saved you You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart I hold a place No one else could ever fill. Always, Your Lady

Agnes Amelia Boulden On 11-11-11 it will have been 40 years since you left.

Oh, mother dear, when you were here, We had your tender care; And none can ever take your place Or fill that vacant chair. You were the sunlight of our home Till God took you away; But we never will forget you And we’ll meet in Heaven we pray. Love, Stan

507 Eastern Blvd.,Esse x, MD 21221

410-391-GOLD

Nosotros Pagamos Mas Por el ORO! With today’s cloudy economy and rising prices on everything from gasoline to the food we eat, everyone is looking for a bit more cash. We all want to go on vacation, out to dinner or maybe catch a new movie, but where do we get the funds? Many people are turning to gold and silver. Most of us have a pieces or two of gold jewelry we never wear or broken pieces burued in the bottom of the jewelry box. How about that odd single earring you lost the match to? Maybe old silver flatware or a tarnished tea set that may have been inherited and just sits around collecting dust? Why not turn these items into cash and take that vacation? The precious metals-purchasing business has grown in leaps and bounds since the old “send us your gold and we’ll send you some money” days. Many shops have opened that will give you a fair price based on the precious metal content of your pieces. The 30+ year-old ring that I wore a total of maybe five times since I purchased it and the wedding band from my failed marriage were turned into a nice new driver to go into my golf bag. Here are a few helpful hints that will aloow you to know a bit more about the process and to help you to make an educated decision on your sale. First off, what is a karat? Karat is the measure of actual gold content in a piece. 24 karat is 99.9% pure parts gold out of the total of 24 parts, leaving 6 parts of other metals. So an 18 karat piece is around 75% gold, 25% filler metals. The reason I say “around” is that unless the

piece in question of 18 karat “plumb” it can come in at about 72% gold content when processed. “Plumb” means that the piece is at least the karat indicated. 18 karat is used mostly on heavier, high-priced items. 14 karat is 14 parts gold to 10 parts filler metal or about 58% goldvolume. again, unless “plumb,” most 14 karat processes at around 55% gold. 14 karat is much more common than 18k and is ised in most every type of jewelry, giving a great gold tone to the piece with great durability as well. 10 karat is the low end of the gold spectrum as it contains 41% gold but processing 39%, sometimes less. The reason to know this is that a ring that is 14 karat gold is worth much more than the same ring at 10 karat. An example would be a typical men’s school ring at $170 in 10k would be worth $240 in 14k and $330 in 18k. Many people don’t understand this and wonder why the

10 karat piece of gold they ish to sell is not as valuable as they thought. Silver can be many different percentages as well. American “Sterling” is 92.5% silver with 7.5% filler metals. This silver processes at about 90% silver content. Silver jewelry is normally marked as “925” meaning 925 parts out of 1,000 are silver, or again, 92,5%. Some European silver can be as low as 80% silver content, so that is something to keep in mind. Weighted silver is a real can of worms. That candlestick holder that weighs in at 10+ ounces more than likely has less than one ounce of 90% silver. They are barely thicker than aluminum foil and filled with cement or other types of things to strengthen them. Some testing you can do at home is first a magnet test. Next thime you’re that the auto store pick up a decent strength magnet. A refrigerator magnet is not very useful for this test. Gold and

silver are not magnetic, so if the item you think may be worth a few dollars sticks to the magnet, then it is not the gold or silver it appears to be. The one exception to this rule would be the clasp. The spring in a clasp is steel and therefore will attract to the magnet but no other part should do so. For gold look at the piece and see if it is marked 10k, 14k, etc. European marks are numbers: 410=10k, 585=14k and 750=18k. Silver would be marked “sterling” 925, 900, 830, 800. If not marked, it is normally plated, so take it to a precious metals shop to find out for sure. Shop testing will consist of the above plus an “acid test.” With the acid test the buyer will polish a bit of the item onto a smooth black stone and test it with acids formulated at various strengths that will enable him to determine the precious metal content of the item. The acid test is the fianl and real test for the item, with the magnet and visual tests just helping to speed the process. After the test are performed, the items will be weighed and a price calculated on the amount of precious metals in the items. That is all there is to it. The process may sound complicated but it usually will take less than five minutes for a few items. Remember most precious metal shops do not care if the items in question are whole, broken, or mis-matched, because the items will be melted and not resold.
