BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Leash laws are not popular with dog owners. People who don’t own dogs generally like leash laws, because they can stroll, jog, play ball, or otherwise enjoy themselves in city parks and streets without being accosted by unfamiliar dogs with unknown agendas. Animal experts say that in the city, leashing your dog is essential when in the open—on a street or in an open park. In the city, dogs should be “absolutely on leash, for the safety of your dog and the people and dogs around them,” says Nichole Miller, animal care and behavior manager for the Maryland SPCA. “Even when you think you have total control of the situation, anything can happen, whether it’s a car, or another dog. Anything. And when it gets out of control bad things happen.” On the other hand, Miller is a “huge proponent of open space that is fenced in so the dogs can play.” Baltimore’s leash law, which requires a dog to be leashed at all times when off its owner’s property, except when in a designated city off-leash park, hit the news again this month after police started issuing citations to owners of off-leash dogs in Patterson Park.

Avoiding crime at holiday time: It includes keeping vehicles safe BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

With shoppers abounding, it’s the most wonderful time of the year for the criminal element proďŹ ting off larceny from auto. Don’t get this wrong: nobody deserves a car break-in. But according to the police, there are several things shoppers can do to make their cars less of a target. Some may seem self-evident (don’t leave items in plain view), but as evidenced by previous listings in the Larceny from Auto section of the Neighborhood Watch crime reports, not enough people are heeding the advice. So without further ado, here are the police department’s suggestions. Note: Larceny from auto and other property crime often spikes during the holiday season, but prevention tips can be used all year long. Recent trends have shown suspects are simply breaking the windows of vehicles when when they see something they like. What do they like? *Electronics: What is easy for criminals to carry away and convert to ready cash? Electronic equipment including GPS units, e-book readers, laptops, mp3 players (iPods, etc.) and phones, particularly smart-

phones. Criminals look for signs that such equipment has been left in the car, including cigarette lighters left uncovered (where power cords are then plugged in), docking stations and GPS mounts, particularly those that stick on the window with suction cups and leave a mark when they’re taken off. Police are recommending that owners remove this equipment from the car entirely. It’s easy to put it into the trunk and out of sight, but it’s safer by far to leave it at home or to carry it with you when exiting the vehicle. (Oh, and GPS units should be used without suction cup mounts). *Packages: Shopping bags left piled in a seat are very tempting to criminals. If you can’t hide packages in a trunk, say the police, take them home. (Don’t bother putting a blanket over them while they’re on the seat either; it’s not an effective deterrent). *Purses and wallets: Sounds like a nobrainer, but quite often, vehicle owners are leaving these items in the car while they take only one card to an ATM machine, run into a convenience store, etc. *Gym bags: You’d be surprised, but vehicle owners who leave gym bags in their cars often come back to ďŹ nd broken windows and missing bags. Why? Hint:

It’s not because criminals crave sweaty clothes. It’s because such bags often contain wallets, phones and mp3 players and sometimes, sought-after Nike shoes. *Suitcases: See gym bags, above. Same reasoning applies. *Prescriptions: It doesn’t actually matter whether it’s an extra-strength antacid or a narcotic cough medicine, prescriptions, if left in vehicles, will be stolen when the car is broken into. *Spare change: That stash of coins you use for meters or tolls? Carry it with you or put it out of sight. If it’s money, thieves want it. *DVDs, CDs: While mp3 players are more desirable, never doubt that thieves

Thieves will break into cars to search through the pockets, or to take jackets or coats if they ďŹ nd them enticing. *Messy interiors: It sounds picky, but the more a thief can see inside the car, the more he/she is going to know something else is in there. Police say a vehicle should look like it just came off the showroom oor, and not have bags, cups, food, power cords and other debris on the oor, the seats, the dashboard, etc.

NEIGHBORHOOD

Leash Law CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

The police started issuing the citations in response to park users’ complaints following a horrific attack of a poodle by two roaming pit bull terriers. Many park users told police they felt threatened by uncontrolled dogs roaming in the park. “When you live in a rural area, where there is plenty of room to run and not many dogs, not leashing your dog can give it a lot of enrichment,” says Miller. “It can run and sniff and discover all sorts of things. In a city, it’s all about safety for your dog and other people’s dogs. If the dog needs to be off leash, there are options.” The city has two official dog parks, one in Canton, on Toone Street, and one in Locust Point between Latrobe and Riverside parks. The city is also converting two tennis courts for use as an offleash area in Patterson Park. “I really like that surface for the dogs, that’s nice,” says Miller. “It’s easy to clean but it has some give to it, it’s not concrete.” The leash law is one precaution. Another is neutering. “Were all the dogs neutered?” asked Aileen Gabbey, executive director of the Maryland SPCA, when told of the attack north of the park. “An unneutered dog is more likely to bite. If everybody is fixed, that should help the problem.” (The poodle and one of the pit bulls are neutered.) The other factor is exercise. A tired dog is a good dog, say both Gabbey and Miller. “Pit bulls are very energetic. You need to keep them busy,” said Gabbey. “Being outside in the yard without company and exercise is very frustrating for dogs. When dogs are lonely and bored, they will take off looking for an adventure.” Snapping the dog on a leash is not the whole solution, however. Dogs on a leash can get tense, and Gabbey suggests giving them a little slack when meeting another dog. “A taut leash almost forces a nose-to-nose

greeting,” she said. “That’s not the best situation. That’s not the way dogs say hello.” A proper greeting in dogdom is noseto-rear. “Leashes can be tough because it does create frustration when off-leash dogs run up on leashed dogs,” said Miller. It’s a bad situation with a lot of dogs off-leash.” Another strategy for a walk in the park is to stuff your pockets full of treats. If the dog gets distracted by something, you can attract him back with something positive. At the SPCA, dog walkers and trainers walk around with their pockets stuffed with turkey hot dogs. “The shelter environment is higher stress, and that makes for lower tolerance,” says Miller. When the dog gets distracted or overexcited, the turkey dog will bring his attention back to his walker. “We redirect their attention to something positive, show that the person who’s walking them is the person to pay attention to,” she said. “It helps them get adopted, and it would help with ‘pet parents’ in the park.” The bottom line is that dogs are highmaintenance pets. The owner needs to concentrate on the dogs’ needs as well as his own. “It takes someone who’s going to take care of them in the morning, take care of them in the evening,” said Gabbey. “Expending that energy is crucial.” Miller says that some large breeds—Great Danes, Newfoundlands, greyhounds and mastiffs in particular—“are real couch potatoes. Take them out for a good run in the morning and they will sleep all day.” And it doesn’t necessarily require hard physical work to make the dog want to nap. “You can do some stuff inside. If you tire out

their brains, that’s good too,” says Gabbey. “Hide treats. Do some training. Once they have that exercise, they just don’t have it in them to cause trouble.” What to do if your dog is already causing grief? There are trainers who will come to your house, observe the dog and offer advice. The SPCA has an eight-week training program called “All-Star Canines” to help you get started training and controlling your dog. Visit http://mdspca.org/petcare/classes. html for details. And spay or neuter your pet. The SPCA has a clinic that neuters cats and pit bulls. “They’re the animals we see most in shelters,” says Gabbey. And if you are receiving unwanted and unsettling attention from a stranger dog? Miller suggests Spray Shield, a citrus-based spray that doesn’t hurt the

dog but does discourage him from coming closer. “In a dangerous situation you could use it,” she said. Spray Shield is by Premier Pets and is available at most pet stores. “I think it’s good the leash law is being enforced,” said Gabbey. “Dogs out running loose is a problem. But I am not sure tickets in the park would have prevented the situation north of the park. So many things were not an ideal setting and this went very badly. I feel for the owners of the dogs.”

Many area dog owners go there and unleash their dogs allowing them to romp and play. Some of these dogs return to their owner on voice command—some do not, and out of curiosity, often have approached my leashed dog uninvited while walking. Over Thanksgiving, I drove my Mom who is in her late 80’s over to the park so she could enjoy the area and see where I walk my dog. She managed a spot on one of the many park benches, and we went for our walk around the park. As we were returning toward her, she frantically motioned to me. There was a large pit bull off its leash stalking something - she was concerned that it was preparing to go after

Congress should cut back too Editor, The Guide:

I agree with your article in “Baltimore Voices” in the December 7th issue of The Baltimore Guide. I can do without the Saturday delivery of bulk (read junk) mail from the U.S. Postal Service. I can also do without the large amount of junk mail received on Tuesdays. However, I understand congress controls much of the USPS practices. What sacrifice is Congress making in order to improve the USPS efficiency and reduce costs? All I see in

her or us. As I ran up to her, we could see that it was only after a squirrel, and while relieved, she was shaken, knowing that she was defenseless. I’ve also seen many people let their dogs off leash in the Digital High football practice field, Henry Park and the open space near E. Gittings St. While the high school field is a wonderful, nice fenced in place for dogs to play, it is clearly marked “NO DOGS.” It amazes me that these responsible dog owners can’t read, and I wonder if they would want their child to romp on the same field. Probably not. There are a number of people who apparently don’t feel it is necessary to clean up after their dog, either. A walk around the outside perimeter of the HS fenced area will clearly document that.

Granted, there are times when there is an unexpected accident and you’re caught without a bag, but how hard is it to go back and clean it up? This lack of caring makes me wonder how many of these animals are actually registered with the city and are current with their shots. Please understand that I am not against dogs being off leash and being allowed to play and socialize. But like everything, there is a time and place for it. It would seem to me that there is enough space at Riverside to make an enclosed area for dogs to play and run free, without disrupting the balance of play space for children, relaxing area for elderly and overall public use of space. I hope that area dog owners will rally to make something happen.

the plans to cut back on USPS services, are consumer services. In 2007, the Congressional Research Service prepared a report for Congress advising representatives that the “franking” privilege had cost taxpayers $113.4 million in current dollars from 1988 to 2007. House members spent more than $45 million in 2009 on taxpayer-funded mass mailings. Senate mailings are far fewer and represent only 13% of all mass congressional mailings from 2000 to 2007. However, the cost of Senate mailings averages about $4 million per year. So much of these congressional mass mailings are to brag to their recip-

ients on what a wonderful service their representative is providing and to say “oh, and by the way, please elect me again”. Also, why not increase the cost of junk mail? We certainly receive more junk mail then we do first class mail. This would not only serve to eliminate a large amount the junk mail we receive, and throw out, but also eliminate the fat cat lobbyists who prey on our susceptible congress people by providing, gifts, junkets and money. Why should congress benefit when we must have our services cut?

Occupy Baltimore is gone, but we shouldn’t forget BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM The 99 percent have been removed from McKeldin Square. Closing down the Occupy Baltimore encampment went smoothly, with no arrests and no blood shed, and everyone was offered a place to stay for the night. Both sides—city and police, and the Occupy folks—deserve praise for that. It went as well as it could, and it provides a welcome contrast to the closing of encampments in Oakland, New York and Los Angeles. I am one of those people who believes that the Occupy movement had some good points to make, though it did not make them well. There is indeed too much wealth concentrated among too few people in the United States. The inequity is not good for the economy or the nation. My rationale for that opinion? The “job creators”—the one percent—are not creat-

ing jobs. Unemployment is holding steady at about 9 percent, and that is too many good people who are willing to work going without work. That is too much misery and too much wasted potential. Problem is, the Occupy movement didn’t have any solutions to offer for the inequity. It doesn’t look like Congress has anything useful to say on the subject either. Here’s what I think, and I am not an economist, though I have been reading the economic news with interest ever since my mutual funds tanked. (That got my attention, you betcha!) I think that Congress should offer businesses a tax credit for every job created. I think the credit should be greater for small businesses than large multinationals, because small business creates the most jobs—and doesn’t move the jobs to Bangalore when profits decline by a micropoint.

So far, so good. I also think Congress should offer business a tax surcharge for moving jobs overseas, and it should be a much greater number than the tax credit for creating jobs here. If Citigroup, or GM, or Verizon or any of the rest of them want to move jobs out of the country it should hurt them. Badly. Presently Congress is playing pingpong with the middle-class payroll tax cut and flirting with a government shutdown, so I doubt they would consider anything useful like a true job creation bill. But they should. And maybe it’s time for us voters to consider bringing our Congress members, most of whom live among the one percent, back home to live among us 99 percent. It would be nice if the incumbents—all of them, Democrats and Republicans alike—felt threatened enough to actually do something about the lousy situation in this country.

DINING IN BALTIMORE

Best crab cake? It’s darned good BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM We stopped by Lakis, 3928 Eastern Avenue (at Grundy) the other day for lunch. The new owner has completely renovated the place, and it’s now a bright, clean, comfortable diner/carryout that also offers Greek specialties and platters. There is a big notice in the menu that says “THE BEST CRAB CAKE IN TOWN.” Any self-respecting Baltimoron would accept that challenge, so we said “Bring it.” We were amazed to find that Lakis might just be telling the truth about their crab cake. It’s big, broiled golden brown and made of sweet backfin crab with practically no filler. It’s seasoned with enough Old Bay to get the spice along with the sweet, but the seasoning doesn’t cancel the crab. For $14.95, this crab cake is a steal. Order it with the traditional saltines or on a roll or bread, and you’ll be happy. The crab cake comes with fries.

We also ordered another diner staple, the Lakis Burger. The burger is grilled with a nice tasty char, a little pinkish inside, and topped with provolone and grilled onions. It’s served with lettuce and tomato, and fries on the side. It’s a very good burger, and also a steal at $7.50. A plain hamburger with lettuce and tomato is $6.50. The most expensive burger on the menu is Cordon Bleu for $7.95. If you are just interested in a snack, try the crab pretzel ($8.95), which is enormous and slathered with enough cheesy Old Bay-y crab dip to make a group of four content. We took half back to the office where it was eagerly devoured. The menu also features Greek, chef and Caesar salads, club sandwiches, subs and soup. There are daily specials as well—one of the specials of the day was veal marsala. Everything on the menu is available for carryout.

Lakis himself, as you might have guessed, is Greek. His name is Lazaros Giannos, but he prefers Lakis. He’s been in the country about two-and-ahalf years and worked at Romano’s in Glen Burnie (which claims “The Best Crab Cakes in Maryland”) before opening his own restaurant. He’s a very good cook indeed. Lakis Restaurant, though much smaller, reminds me of the original Eastern House. It’s friendly, the food is great, and it’s quiet enough to hold

a little lunch meeting. The restaurant definitely fills a need on The Avenue. Lakis is where La Sirenita, the excellent Mexican restaurant, used to be. La Sirenita moved up the street to bigger quarters as demand grew for its excellent food. I’m betting the same will happen to Lakis—once it is discovered it will get very popular. Lakis Restaurant & Carryout, 3928 Eastern Ave., is open 7 a.m.-10 p.m. every day except Saturday.

J.O. and P.H.S. spells academic achievement CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

OGDEN

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Retired Ravens left tackle Jonathan Ogden (top row, right) has continued working with Patterson High School athletes who want to put effort into their grades and volunteer work. “Whenever someone wants help, that’s the greatest part for me,” he says. Photo courtesy Jonathan Ogden Foundation

can give you an opportunity to get a good job in this world. There’s no guarantee because if you don’t get an education you have no chance.” In the 2000 school year, newly-hired Patterson academic coach, and girls basketball coach, Kelley Bagdasarian teamed up with the Jonathan Ogden Foundation. She has since put in many hours mentoring student-athletes in her 12 years at Patterson. Bagdasarian helps set academic goals for each of the student-athletes. The ultimate goal is to place each student into college as the public school fights limited resources and negative outside influences on a regular basis. At the Christmas party, each Foundation club member received a gift from Ogden as part of a reward for their work in the classroom. He also presented each student with scholarship money to help pay for college tuition.

“It’s exciting to see the kids working hard to help themselves and then get rewarded like this, and to have someone as great as Jonathan in their lives,” Bagdasarian said. “It can’t be beaten.” One student-athlete that’s benefited from the Jonathan Ogden Foundation is Craig Oliver, who quarterbacked the Patterson football team this past fall. Oliver transferred from Silver Oak Academy, a reform school for juveniles. Since arriving at Patterson, and with the help of the Jonathan Ogden Foundation, Oliver’s grades and SAT score have made him eligible to play football at the college level. Towson has offered him a scholarship, and Old Dominion, Delaware and Maine are interested in his services. Though Oliver has the necessary SAT score to play college football, Bagdasarian has set a higher goal for

him. Oliver said he will continue to take the SAT until he reaches that goal. “I wanted someone to be there for me other than my athletic abilities,” Oliver said. “I believed that it would be her. She wouldn’t treat me different because I could throw a ball, or how fast I could run. I came here for her.” Said Ogden: “I’ve got the name and the backing and can raise the money. But she’s the one doing the work with the kids every day, helping them with their SATs, getting them the tutoring, trying to teach them what they need to move on to the next level. Without someone like that, then all the work doesn’t mean anything.” At the Christmas party, the students played a game of touch football on M&T Bank Stadium’s field, a day after the Ravens defeated the Colts

24-10. They ate lunch in the team’s locker room and held a song-anddance competition, which was judged by Patterson coaches and Ogden. To be a member of the club is simple: You have to want to be there. You have to want to improve academically and you have to want to be pushed. You also have to be involved in the community and give back. Club members will then vote students who meet the criteria in. The group held a canned food drive and helped with a Toys for Tots drive at Graceland Park. They also tutor younger students in the school system. The fact that these students are working to better than standing academically makes Ogden’s job worthwhile. “It’s not me, it’s these kids,” Ogden said. “Whenever someone wants help, that’s the greatest part for me.”

BIRDS HOUSE:

THE BALTIMORE GUIDE 9

Patience and more patience please BY ANDY MINDZAK

A wise man once said, “All we need is just a little patience.” OK, so maybe that man was Axl Rose and he isn’t necessarily wise, but he does have a point. Besides, have we not learned anything from Tim Tebow? Let’s start thinking positively people! With the Winter Meetings come and gone, I can imagine the Orioles meetings went something like the beginning of the movie Major League, “I haven’t heard of half these guys and the ones I do know are way past their prime. Most of these guys never had a prime.” It’s true, the big name the Orioles acquired at the Winter Meetings was left handed pitcher Dana Eveland. Eveland is a 28-year-old pitcher with a career 5.52 ERA (stop me if you’ve heard this before) to go along with his career record of 19-24. His one full year as a starter came in 2008 while with the Oakland Athletics where he finished up 9-9 with a 4.34 ERA. Last year with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Eveland made only five starts and went 3-2 with

a 3.03 ERA. Maybe there’s something there, but… For the Orioles, signing a big name like Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder isn’t going to help any. If anything it’ll give the O’s fans a false sense of hope, kind of like bringing in Vladimir Guerrero. Sure, right now the Los Angeles Angels have one of the best first basemen to ever play the game, but Pujols will be 32 in January and they signed him for the next 10 years. I give him four good years before they are stuck with his declining skills and ridiculous salary for the last six years. Have fun LA! Prince Fielder is a big hitting first baseman, but he will likely sign a huge contract of at least $20 million per year—which will pay for a lot of all-you-can-eat buffets for the portly first baseman. Given he’s a vegan, I’m concerned he’s 275 pounds. Yes he’s only 27, but his weight is a serious concern. Signing a Pujols or Fielder would suck up the little money Dan Duquette

is allotted to spend on free agents, and one area where the Orioles seriously need help is pitching. Last year they finished dead last in ERA, which is something neither Pujols nor Fielder can help with. The Orioles would not have found a playoff berth with the material available at this year’s Winter Meetings, and we need to accept that. Duquette is doing what he can,

and Axl had it right. We do need just a little patience because this team is a bit screwed up right now and Duquette needs to sort it all out. Which he will. Yes, it’s been forever since there has been a .500 team at Camden Yards, but Duquette will take some more advice from Axl and will “…take it slow, and it’ll work itself out fine.” Let’s give him the time he needs.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2011

Epps steps up to lead BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM One starter returned from Digital Harborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 state championship basketball team. That starter is senior guard/forward Ronald Epps, who has stepped up and become a leaderon this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad. Sometimes it can be a tough challenge to be thrust into the spotlight. But Epps has taken the responsibility head-on and plans to keep Digital Harbor among Baltimoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best basketball teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone knows their roles and we know what to do to make this team better,â&#x20AC;? Epps said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking to help my team out and bring everyone together.â&#x20AC;? In Digital Harborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first game, a win over Carver, coach Johnny Grimes praised Eppsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leadership skill on the floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Ronald Epps did well running the floor,â&#x20AC;? Grimes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score a lot of points he did all the intangibles.â&#x20AC;? Epps looks up to NBA stars Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James and looks to model his game after theirs. Though he

strives for big things, he relishes the role of the underdog that the Rams have been labeled after UNLV commit DaQuan Cook (St. Frances Academy), Nyme Manns (Patterson) and Antonio Manns (Oakland Mills) transferred. Epps will have some senior leadership by his side soon when guard Dominic Barnes returns from a broken tibia suffered during the football season. The younger Rams look up to Epps as their senior leader. Junior Charles TurnerCox said Epps constantly pushes the underclassmen in practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at practice, he has us working hard,â&#x20AC;? Turner-Cox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the new guys. Me, as a new guy transitioning from JV to varsity, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great leader. He pushes us. He lets us know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be easy.â&#x20AC;? Since winning its first game, Digital Harbor has dropped its last two games. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to kill Eppsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always live as the underdog,â&#x20AC;? Epps Epps moves the ball upcourt against Carver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking to help my team out said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first year here, we were the under- and bring everyone together,â&#x20AC;? he says.

Man killed during apparent robbery

Police seeking all leads; anonymous tips welcome Robbery may have been the motive for a stabbing that resulted in the death of one man last week. Officers found Carlos Martinez, 27, bleeding from a chest wound shortly after noon on Tuesday, December 6. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 1:12 p.m., according to Baltimore Police Department spokesperson Det. Kevin Brown. Police said that Martinez was out walking in the unit block of N. East

Avenue when he was confronted by a suspect or suspects. Police tentatively believe the suspects tried to rob Martinez, and stabbed him in the process.

March 2011 I chose to sell my gold at Essex Pawn because they are very professional. They did not try to lowball me. I was amazed when they told me how much I was getting for my gold. I trust the guys at Essex Pawn, which is why I will go back if I need a loan or find some broken gold to sell.

BY HASANI EVANS SPECIAL TO THE BALTIMORE GUIDE Digital Harbor’s game plan against Bel Air? Give the ball to junior Infiniti Alston. Bel-Air was unprepared and undersized for the 6-5 center, who scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, most of which came in the first half of the Lady Rams’ 79-31 victory on Monday. The game started with three quick Digital Harbor baskets, and the Lady Rams took an early double-digit lead as Alston made her presence known, scoring nine in the first quarter. The second quarter started with senior Antawnye Parks draining a 3-pointer from the corner and junior Jaida Scarborough hitting an almost identical shot, but with her foot on the line for two points. Parks scored eight before the half and finished with 14. Up 33-10 late in the second quarter, a block by junior Alexis Harrison got the raucous crowd even more excited. The Lady Rams used the play to increase the momentum and the tempo, and they added

more steals and fast breaks to go into halftime with a 45-12 lead. After a loss on Saturday to Riverdale Baptist, the fifth ranked team in the nation, the Lady Rams were eager to get back on the court and prove that they are still a force to be reckoned with. “We had a lot to play for, especially coming off of that tough loss on Saturday night,” said Alston, a Penn State commit. “This was the first game of the season, the first step to us winning a state championship.” After a win and a loss over the weekend, the 2-1 Rams face a tough schedule after moving up to a stacked 3A North conference. The team knows that the competition will only get tougher down the road, and they are already preparing. “We need to improve on our communication skills as a whole, but we’ll only get better as the season goes on,” Parks said. —Hasani Evans is a student at Digital Harbor High School. The Baltimore Guide is pleased to feature outstanding work by students in the community.
