Not so fast with FAST changes, say parents

LETTERS TO SANTA

BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

A group of parents acknowledges that southeast Baltimore would benefit from another elementary-middle school; they just feel like the decision to open a new school on the site of Friendship Academy of Science and Technology at 801 S. Highland Ave. is moving too swiftly. They also say they’d like to know the scope of the school and who will be operating it before the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners votes on the proposed recommendation on Dec. 17. The board is scheduled to vote on whether to renew FAST School’s operator’s contract for three years—and if it is renewed, to relocate the middle-high school to another location in the district in 2016 or 2017. At the same time, commissioners will decide whether to create a new elementary-middle school in FAST’s 801 S. Highland Ave. building to reduce overcrowding in southeast Baltimore’s elementary-middle schools. The 801 S. Highland Ave. building was

Stachura receives proclamation from Mayor’s OfďŹ ce Mel Stachura, who lives in Little Italy, recently received a proclamation from the mayor’s office honoring him for his civic involvement. Stachura was recognized for his leadership of the Little Italy Property Owners Assocation, a Little Italy community organization. “Mel has displayed a remarkable commitment to the neighborhood of Little Italy. He has been instrumental in getting LIPOA up and running and has done an exemplary job in leading the association. His efforts are much appreciated,â€? said City Councilman James Kraft. P.J. O’Neill, a member of LIPOA, said that Stachura was instrumental in the organization’s success. “In fact, instrumental would be an understatement. Leading the organization was a full-time effort for Mel. He was in constant communication with the police, the state and local government, the state’s attorney, and the Liquor Board. He helped the organization accomplish a lot. He could organize people and make things happen.â€? Stachura was the president of the organization until a few weeks ago, but stepped down.

Remember teachers in your holiday shopping

Approximately 29 teachers are participating in the first annual Hampstead Hill Academy Wish List Project, an initiative organized by the charter school’s Parent Teacher Organization in partnership with several community associations and neighborhoods. How it works: Teachers were given a budget to request up to $75 in supplemental learning supplies, incentive items, books, etc., to enhance teaching and learning. Each teacher’s items have been listed on individual tickets with the teacher’s name, approximate value of the item, and where the item may be purchased. Wish lists range in value from about $10 up to the $75 maximum. Neighbors who wish to participate may take a ticket and purchase the item or items on it. All participating neighbors will be invited to a grand finale party at Claddaugh Pub in Canton, at which community members can get to know the teachers. If you wish to participate, please contact Dawn Burks at burksdawn@ gmail.com or 443-467-1642.

While the Baltimore Guide has a special affinity for the Highlandtown Train Garden, we would be remiss if we did not mention the Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society’s holiday train garden. Their train garden consumes 350 square feet of space at the society’s museum, located at 4 Center Place in Dundalk. It’s open seven days a week, noon-8 p.m., through Sunday, Jan. 5. The only exception is Christmas Eve, Dec. 24,

on which the train garden closes at 5 p.m. and remains closed through Christmas Day, Dec. 25. Admission to the train garden is free. There are over 100 animated items in the multi-tiered layout. It also features a SpongeBob Square Pants scavenger hunt in which families search for SpongeBob characters.

Red Line is much needed and long overdue To the Editor: I have to say that I am disturbed and somewhat mystified by the near hysterical angst which continues to be expressed by many in Canton about the Red Line. Buzz words like “disaster,” “debacle” and “calamity” are used to describe this project; but nowhere have I heard any specific reasons to justify these kinds of alarmist terms. It should be apparent to everyone that we have a grievously inadequate public transportation system in our city. Because of that, residents and commuters have no alternative but to use a motor vehicle to go about their business. The result is worsening gridlock on our streets, particularly during rush hours, worsening parking problems, streets that are more dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists, and increasing noise and contamination from the additional motor vehicles. An efficient and reliable rapid rail system is long overdue and desperately needed to address this worsening situation.

We now have a plan for such a system, the Red Line, running from the east side of our city to the west side. This plan has been many years in the making and has had input from nearly every conceivable stakeholder. Obviously, considering the extent and complexity of the plan and the many issues and interests involved, it will not please everyone. In fact, it is relatively easy to cherry-pick facts and figures from the various studies prepared in connection with this project to show that the plan is deficient in one way or another. But, the reality is that this is the only plan we have today—a plan prepared by expert land-planners, transportation specialists and traffic engineers over many years and the expenditure of millions of dollars, and now approved by the appropriate city, state and federal governmental agencies. I, for one, a resident of Canton on Boston St since 1988, am very excited that, after the many years of planning and debate, the Red Line is now on the verge of becoming a reality. This is not only critically important for the development of a much-needed and long overdue reliable public transportation system for the city, but it will also be very beneficial for my neighborhood here in Canton. It will directly address the daunting parking problem we have been grappling with, by enabling folks to live with one or no car. Additionally, given the experience in other cities with new light rail systems, it should increase the value of our properties given the proximity of this new facility. And, by eliminating one lane of motor vehicle traffic during rush hour, it will significantly discourage commuter traffic on Boston Street. This means that we can now have dedicated bicycle lanes on Boston Street, and the light rail trains will be safer, quieter and cleaner than the motor vehicle traffic they replace and displace.

Liquor complaints get new button The Liquor Board has been part of the city’s on city’s 311 app 311 service request and complaint system (online and via traditional phone) since 2010, BY DANIELLE SWEENEY

DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Annoyed residents who have a beef with Baltimore bars or liquor establishments will soon have a way to complain more conveniently—and publicly—via a new option on the City’s 311 smart phone app. “The 311 mobile app’s “Liquor and Adult Entertainment Complaint” button had its beta release last week,” said Qist Ka’bah, the Board of Liquor License Commissioners’ 311 call center supervisor and police liaison. The new button will allow users of the city’s 311 smartphone app to type in the name and address of a bar, restaurant, or liquor store and send a complaint to 311 and the Liquor Board about trash, disturbing the peace, noise, loud music, gambling, operating without a license, and sales of alcohol to minors, to name a few of the 15 grievance choices. Residents who use the 311 liquor complaint button can choose to share their complaint with the public and also upload a photo. A videosharing option is not available at this time. The button debuted in beta with a glitch with the business name field, said Ka’bah, but the Mayor’s Office of Information Technology is working on an update. “It is supposed to be ready by the end of December,” he said. According to Ka’Bah, Liquor Board inspectors currently receive 311 liquor-related complaints on their cell phones and office computers. “Liquor Board inspectors are scheduled to respond to complaints in real time, and the 311 complaints are part of the [liquor] licensee’s electronic data base record,” he added.

although, according to the state’s recent audit of the agency, the Liquor Board’s track record of addressing 311 complaints has been poor. The audit specifically noted that Liquor Board inspectors closed cases before complaints were investigated and resolved, and did not always document results. The audit recommended that the board use the 311 system’s report capabilities to more efficiently monitor complaint investigations and resolutions. One advantage of posting complaints via smartphone is that public complaints are automatically tweeted and become part of 311’s Twitter archive—an electronic paper trail that can be viewed by followers of 311 and retweeted to anyone who uses the social media app. “I’m hoping after a possible start-up learning curve, this will be a great tool for residents,” said Stephan Fogleman, chairman of the Liquor Board, Fell’s Prospect Community Association President Victor Corbin, who is active with liquor establishment issues, said he has not used the new button, but is intrigued by the convenience, and the public nature of the complaints. He said that now, when he files a 311 liquorrelated complaint online, he copies the 311 screen, pastes it into the body of the email, attaches photos, and cc’s the Liquor Board staff, elected officials, and fellow activists. “It sounds like with the app, I won’t necessarily have to do all the extra steps,” he said. “It could also help with Liquor Board accountability. I think it could help hold people more accountable to do their jobs.”

Sheriff candidate offers a peek at school policing “I would say we apply our social science by Erik zygmont EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Donoven Brooks, who is running for Baltimore City Sheriff, spoke to Southeast residents last week about his current job. Brooks is currently a Baltimore City School Police supervisor in Sector 7, in northeast Baltimore. He supervises 18 police officers who cover 22 school buildings. At the Southeastern District Police Community Relations Council meeting last week, Brooks took questions about school policing.

On the “social science” component:

A resident asked Brooks if school police officers take more of a traditional policing approach or apply more social skills to their roles in the schools.

skills a lot more,” said Brooks, adding that school police officers bear some responsibility for weighing “whether or not we give a student a second bite of the apple, so to speak, if there’s been an infraction.” Also, he added, police officers decide “whether we want to solicit the support of an administrator or teacher before making an arrest.” Brooks noted that administrators such as school principals actually have more authority than the police in certain situations. While an officer needs probable cause and a warrant to execute a search-and-seizure, a principal can do essentially the same thing with fewer restrictions, he said. However, when a crime has been committed, police intervention is necessary. “Some of the crimes we see being committed are being committed by young

people,” Brooks said. “Victims have to have access to justice, whether a crime came from young or old.”

On gang activity in schools:

A resident asked how much gang activity influences school policing. “That will vary from area to area,” said Brooks. “We look for it everywhere, but we focus on areas where it’s occurring.” He added that school police try to prevent gang activity “on the front end,” by addressing “9-, 10-, 11-year-olds affiliating themselves with gangs.” Some of the school police are GREAT officers: Gang Resistance and Training, said Brooks. Regarding gangs—and everything else— Brooks noted that the School Police Department shares information with other agencies, such as the BCPD Gang Unit.

arrived

On training for school police:

Brooks said that school police graduate from the Baltimore City Police Academy with regular city police. The difference, he said, is that school police must familiarize themselves with education law. “It basically deals with ensuring we don’t infringe on certain rights,” he said.

On top priorities:

A resident inquired as to the top three categories of calls school police have received in the last year. Instead, Brooks spoke about the top three priorities of school police. First, he said, “We want to keep weapons out of schools.” He clarified, however, that while weapons in schools are not tolerated under any circumstances, the public perception of “weapons in schools” may be off a bit. “There are so many students who, for whatever reason, travel in fear,” Brooks explained, adding that the police will often find a weapon on a student without a history of violence or trouble-making. “You don’t know how they’ve been threatened in the community on the way to school or on the way home,” he said. Another priority is monitoring gang activity, which might entail “sharing information about students—he could be getting transferred to a school with people he has issues with.” The final major priority, Brooks said, is simply “keeping school safety.” As for actual calls, Brooks said school police are called most often to respond to fights. “We live in a very litigious society,” he said. “People are very careful of how they intervene.”

Shedding some light on Highland Avenue BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Residents of Highland Ave. are brightening up their block—and not only with holiday lights. The Southeast Community Development Corporation recently gave 11 residents and two businesses solar lights to mount on the front of their houses and storefronts as part of a pilot project to help brighten the neighborhood after dark. “Right now, there is not a very good perception of safety on Highland Ave,â€? says Alyse Altenburg, a community organizer with the Southeast CDC. “Residents feel Highland Ave. is too dark, and‌unsafe to walk after night. The cover of darkness also permits illegal activities, such as dumping of trash and large items— mattresses and furniture—crime, and loitering.â€? This project, she says, is part of a larger goal to install solar lights on as many homes as possible on Highland Ave. between Eastern Ave. and Baltimore St. The inspiration for lighting up the blocks came last summer, when the Southeast CDC held a community meeting to discuss improvement projects on Highland Ave. and asked residents what should be done to improve the area. “The overwhelming response was more lighting,â€? Altenburg says. The solar lights contain a dusk-to-dawn timer, so they turn on automatically after dark and off at dawn, Altenburg says. The solar lights are a “freeâ€? source of energy and the batteries last for several years, she adds. “This was a major contributing factor in choosing solar lights. Many residents have traditional electric lights on their homes but do not turn them on at night because they simply forget, or do not want to run up their electricity bill,â€? she says. Residents who already have conventional house lights were able to participate in the lighting project by having dusk-to-dawn timers installed in their homes free of charge. The solar lights and timers were paid for by a grant from the Baltimore Community Foundation, Altenburg says. Page Bradham, who lives on Highland Ave., is excited about the project and what it could mean for the community.

“This is a great opportunity for our community to come together and actively do something to help lower the crime rate and raise the real estate of our historic Baltimore neighborhood,� says Bradham, who has lived in Highlandtown for 10 years. “They will make Highland Ave. a safer place to live and work.� Altenburg says the project is ongoing, and future lights will be paid for through additional grant money. “We’d like to see every house on Highland Ave. have a free solar house light, or a duskto-dawn timer so no patch of sidewalk is left unlit at night.�

They will make Highland Ave. a safer place to live and work.

3D printing shop takes shape in Canton BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Like many other people since Nov. 29, Connor Robertson and Daniel Whitehead, high school seniors at Friendship Academy of Science and Technology, stopped into Bmore 3D—a pop-up 3D printing and scanning shop at 2150 Boston St.—because they were curious. Now, they might have secured internships. “Are you going to be my second and third interns?� joked Graham Stewart, who mans the little store—right next to Sip & Bite—and works on molding the science, art and whimsy of 3D printing into some kind of viable business. “You’re hiring?� asked Whitehead. “No, no, no,� explained Stewart, a large, jocular man in a fedora. “Interns work but they don’t get paid.� Nevertheless, the boys were interested and left their contact information before they walked out to find buses home. “If you want to hang out and learn about 3D printing, it’s a great thing to do,� said Stewart. If you could print any object in the world, what would it be? For Graham Stewart, it was the “We can start with the trash—there’s a lot of it Opti-Grab, the eyeglass-removal tool that made Steve Martin’s character rich and famous in in the back room.� “The Jerk.�. | Photo by Erik Zygmont

The store, Bmore 3D, is open every day from 1-9 p.m. through December. It’s a collaboration between Custom 3D Stuff, Direct Dimensions, ShapeShot and Tinkerine Studio, all firms dedicated to the 3D printing and scanning industry. Stewart said that the pop-up store idea became reality very quickly. “We went from zero to 60 in 13 days,� he said. “We were able to collaborate on it and get it off the ground in a very short time.� The centerpiece of the store is the ShapeShot, “the world’s first fully-automated 3D photo booth,� according to a press release from Bmore 3D. The booth and service is a product of Direct Dimensions, founded by Michael Raphael. Customers enter the ShapeShot, which photographs them from multiple angles. The information from the photos is combined to produce one 3D model, which is saved as a computer file. That file is then used to print out bobbleheads, 3D holograms, busts, coffee mugs and other objects in the customer�s likeness. Last year, a ShapeShot booth was set up in Manhattan and featured in Time Magazine. In Baltimore, the booth has been attracting

a lot of parents with children and teens, as evidenced by the store traffic during the Guide’s interview with Stewart. “Remember to sit up straight,” a mother tells her son as he sits in the booth. The shop also features 3D art from Kacie Haltgreen, Todd Blatt of Custom 3D Stuff, and Tony Karp. Karp is perhaps most famous for developing a video camera lens that zooms in and maintains focus in an automated process, which was seen in the opening of the Godfather. “I think he also cured polio and brought peace to the Middle East,” joked Stewart. He has similarly high expectations for the future of 3D printing. “The analogy I’ve been using with 3D printers is sewing machines,” he said. “They are the sewing machines of the 21st Century.” Indeed, in appearance, the Tinkerine Ditto+, which is perpetually printing objects in the pop-up shop, looks similar to a sewing machine. Instead of thread, a spool of plastic line—which is melted and reborn as a 3D

object—feeds into the machine. “People used to make their own clothes; now they make their own stuff,” explained Stewart. “Imagine a logger out in the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest. He needs a part for his chainsaw? He can print one up.” But what if his 3D printer starts to wear out? “Then print out a new printer,” said Stewart. While he happily sells the pop-up shop’s odd products and services, Stewart spends just as much time answering questions and having discussions about 3D printing. “The purpose of the gallery here is to show what you can do with 3D printing,” he said. “We try to support the hackers, makers and artists.” For aspiring hackers, the shop offers a 3D printing workshop--$25 for instruction and a Cody Wright-designed t-shirt—on Saturdays at noon through the end of December.

A new ‘mini’ library opens in Canton by Danielle Sweeney DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

When Emily Brown and her roommates realized that renovations to Canton’s historic public library would take a while, the book lovers decided to open a small library of their own Their “Little Free Library,” essentially a community book exchange, opened on Nov. 16 in the yard of Messiah Lutheran Church, at O’Donnell St. and Decker Ave. Brown, her roommates Sarah Papania and Christa Huber, and friend Greg Strouse, were familiar with small book exchanges in Charles Village and around the U.S.–Papania saw her first Little Free Library in an Instagram photo-and decided that the concept suited Canton well. The idea is simple: neighbors and passersby can visit the exchange and either take books or donate books, without the expectation of returning them. An organization called Little Free Libraries provides some guidance on setting up a book exchange, registers the libraries, and puts them on a map on their website, but Little Free Library founders like Brown do the rest. Brown knew that Pratt’s Southeast Anchor Library is less than a mile away from most of Canton but believed that some Cantonites, especially those who would like to walk to the library with kids, would welcome a book swap within walking distance.  “We have a lot of young families here. Books are things that families can share together,” she says. Strouse built the roommates the sturdy, allweather, house-shaped library box out of recycled materials, and Rev. Lee Hudson of Messiah Lutheran Church agreed to make space for the colorful library on church property. “We thought it would be nice to have it near the Canton Library. It is in the garden of Messiah Hall, on the O’Donnell St. side,” says Hudson, adding that he welcomes a literary alternative to Canton’s sports bar scene, and is pleased that the project was initiated by younger members of the community. The Little Free Library is publicly accessible, 24-7. “We like its location. It has a lot of foot traffic but is somewhat protected,” says Brown.  It holds approximately 40 standard-sized books on two shelves. “Some are from our personal collections. Others came from family, friends, and donations,” Brown says. Canton’s Little Free Library recently housed copies of “Frankenstein,” “The Adventures of

Huckleberry Finn,” “Bel Canto,” “Good Night Moon,” and “Where the Sidewalk Ends.” The classics and literary novels are balanced with a healthy dose of self-help, thrillers, and mysteries, and the library’s contents will change regularly, according to what people donate. Papania says that filling Canton’s book void was important to them, but sharing books and book conversation among the community was a motivating factor as well.  “You can’t beat having a book in your hands, but this way you can read a book and share it with someone else. I put a copy of “A Passage to India” in there. I loved that book. I wrote my thesis on it. I want someone to find it and enjoy it,” she says. “Canton is a pretty engaged community. I know that residents will get involved and make the Little Free Library their own.” You can correspond with the founders of the Little Free Library at cantonlittlefreelibrary@ gmail.com.

School: Should Hampstead Hill Academy expand into FAST building? CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

built in 1926 and was already scheduled to be renovated in year three (2016) of the City School’s 21st Century Buildings Plan. If the board votes yes, its renovation will be moved up to year two of the plan: 2015. The FAST building (former home of Canton Middle School) has been selected for an elementary-middle because it is the only building the school system owns in southeast Baltimore, according to Allison Perkins-Cohen, director of City Schools Office of New Initiatives. Matthew Hornbeck, principal of Hampstead Hill Academy, 500 S. Linwood Ave, about three blocks away from FAST, wrote in a letter to parents posted on Hampstead Hill’s web site that the “recommendation to open a new school is a surprise and requires further deliberation‌ The first public meeting [Nov. 14] was announced with just two days’ notice.â€? He went on to say that a new school could negatively impact Hampstead Hill’s school’s budget and alter its attendance area. He encouraged parents to write letters to the School Board urging them not to vote on the new school until the community has more information on the school’s type, operator, and zoning. Perkins-Cohen said in a Dec. 5 email that the vote was only on whether to create a new elementary-middle school in Canton—not about who the school would serve or its academic scope. “There is ample time after the board vote to consider and solicit feedback from the community on issues related to programming of the new school, such as whether it will be a charter, contract, or traditional school; what the programmatic focus will be and how students would be admitted–for example, whether it would serve a superzone that gives preference to all students zoned to overcrowded schools in the Southeast, in which case students would have two school choices, their traditional zoned school or the newly created school; whether we should redraw the zones, or some other approach.â€? Lisa First-Willis, who sits on Hampstead Hill’s Parent Advisory Board, agrees with Hornbeck that the process is moving too quickly. “We are supportive of a new school,â€? she notes, “but we also have an interest in

expanding. We feel that Hampstead Hill Academy should get the right of first refusal on the building and operate both schools under the Hampstead Hill charter with the Baltimore Curriculum Project, a nonprofit that runs a network of neighborhood charter schools in east Baltimore.� According to the school’s web site, Hampstead Hill serves students living in its attendance area from Broadway west to Haven St. and Eastern Ave. to Boston St. First-Willis says that the school currently has a waiting list of more than 200 students.

We’d like to provide this educational opportunity to more students. She imagines that if both buildings were used by Hampstead Hill, one would be for an expanded pre-K to grade 4, and the other for an expanded grades 5-8, and enrollment would increase significantly. “It’s a very diverse school and I believe one of the best performing schools in the city, and it just gets better and better,� FirstWillis says. “We’d like to provide this educational opportunity to more students. We hope the School Board will work with us to expand this Baltimore success story.� As it stands now, HHA is scheduled to be renovated in year nine (2023) of the city’s 21st Century School Buildings Plan. The renovation includes the possibility of an addition to its building. State Senator Bill Ferguson (46th district), who lives in Canton, says he looks forward to working with Baltimore City Public Schools leadership, school leaders at current southeast public schools, and the community to find the program that will most benefit the neighborhoods’ families. “I very much hope that Hampstead Hill Academy is considered as a potential operator of any new program in Canton— HHA has proven to be a program of high quality that is doing wonders to keep families living and thriving in southeast Baltimore.�

BIRDS HOUSE

by Andy Mindzak

What can you get done in two minutes?

| File photo

Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself, “What can I do in two minutes?” If you gave it some thought, you could maybe peel an orange, or put your contacts in, or change your baby’s diaper (Ok, so it might take me about 3-4 minutes, but she fusses around a lot!). When I think of two minutes, I think back to when I was a kid and my family and I would go to church every Sunday. My dad and I would be ready to leave and I would ask mom if she was ready to which she would consistently reply, “Just a couple of minutes.” In reality, those “couple of minutes” would turn out to be around 10 to 15. Something tells me during the Baltimore Ravens game this past Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, those final two minutes and seven seconds must have felt like even more than 10 to 15 minutes. Maybe my mom was on to something…. With Baltimore trailing 12-7 with 2:07 on the clock, Joe Flacco hit Dennis Pitta for a one yard score. The two-point conversion was successful, putting the Ravens up 15-12. This is the Minnesota Vikings with Adrian Peterson hurt and off the field. No way can they mount any sort of comeback, let alone two, right? Wrong. On the second play of the following Minnesota possession, backup running back Toby Gerhart rushed up the middle for a 41-yard touchdown to put the Vikings up 19-15 with 1:45 left in the game. Oh boy, maybe Flacco has it in him to get

the Ravens down the field quickly to win the game. Turns out, that would not be necessary as Jacboy Jones took that ensuing kickoff 77 yards for a touchdown as the Ravens now went up 22-19 with 1:16 left. OK, so the defense can handle this weak Vikings offense, so we should be good here. Also incorrect. On the third play of the following drive, Minnesota quarterback Matt Cassel hit Cordarrelle Patterson with a quick pass to the right, and then Patterson was off to the races as he dashed 79 yards for the score, putting the Vikings up 26-22 with now only 45 seconds left. Ok, so I know the last minute or so has been insane, but at some point, Baltimore’s luck is going to run out, right? Wrong yet again. I haven’t made this many wrong assumptions since I thought my last ex-girlfriend was actually dateable. Flacco did the impossible as he hit Marlon Brown for a 35-yard gain before getting picked off, but, thanks to a pass interference call against the Vikings, Baltimore moved to the Minnesota 27-yard line. Flacco then hit Pitta over the middle for 18 yards before the Ravens had to burn their last timeout with nine seconds remaining. With the game on the line Flacco somehow found Brown again, this time in the back of the endzone for the winning score with four seconds to spare. Luckily, Minnesota did not return the kickoff for a score and the Ravens held on to win 29-26, improving their record to 7-6 as they won their third straight game. As it stands right now, the Ravens have the final Wild-Card spot, but their schedule will become a bit more difficult as they travel to Detroit to play the Lions before facing off against the New England Patriots at home. They end the year against the Cincinnati Bengals on the road, which will not be easy. I said previously that the Ravens needed to win these games against the Steelers, Jets and Vikings, and they did just that. Now things get a little tougher and we will really see what this team is made of.
