Travel Plaza’s Voltage Nightclub to face Liquor Board hearing BY ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Voltage Nightclub will face a tough hearing in front of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners in the near future. The club, located at 5625 O’Donnell St. in the Baltimore Travel Plaza, was the scene of a non-fatal shooting—on the dance floor—in the wee morning hours of Monday, Dec. 2, police say. Police reports and Liquor Board documents also allege other violations and incidents, including a large fight on Nov. 22 involving 100-200 people in the parking lot of the club. Police say that that fight began with smaller groups of females and spread to include a much larger number of both sexes. At one point, a uniformed officer was pepper sprayed or maced by an “unknown private security guard,” says a police report. Other reports state that on two dates, Nov. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

What would motivate somebody to take in over 30 foster children over a decade or two, without compensation? “They needed me and I had enough love to share with them,” explains Mary Walker, 82, now a resident of the 700 block of S. Conkling St. Walker was a guardian angel to down-andout children in the 1950s and 60s. She has countless stories; here are a couple: One day, Walker saw a young boy wandering the street. “I said, ‘Where’s your mom and dad?” she says. Unable to get a clear answer, she dropped into a corner bar and questioned the bartender, “Miss Mary.” “Miss Mary told me she was keeping her eye on him,” says Walker. “His mother was arrested for prostituting.” The boy stayed with Walker and her own children—she has two girls and three boys— until things stabilized at his home. Another time, a couple who worked for a famous bookmaker was facing jail time. “I ended up with their little boy for a long time,” says Walker. A gentle woman who has spent most of her life in southeast Baltimore, Walker tells her stories to the Guide because we requested it—a friend of hers gave us the tip. “I don’t see why I’m so interesting,” Walker says, “but okay.” “I took in children from broken homes,” she explains. “I didn’t have a lot of money, and I didn’t get paid for it, and I didn’t expect it. I did it because they needed help and I loved them.” She adds that she has not kept in touch with them. “I don’t talk to none of the children I had. That was a different time in their lives.” While certain kids were, at very vulnerable times in their lives, lucky to have Walker around, the elderly, too, have benefited from her benevolent presence. There was a Mrs. Simmons, who lived on Decker Ave. “She had cancer, and needed help,” says Walker, adding that the woman had an abiding fear of dying alone. “I told her, ‘I will not leave you—if you start to feel bad, I will stay with you day and night.’” When the time came, Walker laid down on the floor next to the woman’s bed and held her hand for most of the night, until she passed away. “I didn’t leave them like that,” Walker says.

Another man, who lived on Foster Ave., initially sought Walker’s help buying groceries. “When he started feeling bad, I did more,” she says, adding that she helped Mr. Conrad for 18 years, keeping him out of the nursing home with her power of attorney until he was weakened by a bout of sickness. “There was no AC, so we couldn’t bring him home,” Walker says. “It broke my heart, but I visited him at least four or five times per week.” “I think I kept him around a lot longer, by being around for him,” she reflects. While Walker has informally offered her help throughout her life, she has also frequently volunteered in an official capacity. She worked at the McKim Center, a children’s community center on E. Baltimore ST., for about 12 years starting in 1961. She has also helped special education students in the Baltimore City public school system. Walker volunteered at a Lloyd St. elementary school for 15-20 hours per week, starting in 1964. Most recently, she has been active in the VFW, volunteering her time at the Charles Evering Post in Rosedale and at the Baltimore VA Medical Center on Green St. and the Perry Point VA Medical Center in Perry Point, where she continues to visit patients. Pimlico Hotel Years as a waitress at the Pimlico Hotel—a legendary restaurant favored by the horseracing crowd, politicians and celebrities— familiarized Walker with those of another walk of life. Of course, she remembers who tipped well.

The country singer Glen Campbell, who played La Boeuf opposite John Wayne’s Rooster Cogburn in the original “True Grit,” was one. Comic actress Martha Raye was another. “She tipped 15 percent, because she and her mother and her sister were all waitresses, so they believed in [tipping],” says Walker, noting that 15 percent was a generous tip at the time. Raye’s affinity for soldiers and the military was another trait she shared with Walker. Known for traveling to Vietnam and visiting with troops—and caring for the wounded— Raye acquired several honorary military ranks, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and is buried at Post Cemetery at Fort Bragg. “I’ll tell you the truth,” says Walker of

waiting tables at the Pimlico Hotel. “I made good money. One time I wanted to buy a car and I went out and bought one from the showroom with cash.” Her other regular customers included Channel 11 staff and the owners of Goldberg’s Department Store, a bygone Cockeysville establishment. In addition to meeting famous people, Walker is one of very few people who learned to make the Pimlico’s famous Coffey Salad— from fellow waitress Claudia Coffey herself. “She said, ‘I’m going to show you one time how to make this salad, and I’m never going to show you again, so don’t ask me,’” remembers Walker. She is quite handy in the kitchen, and the Guide thanks her for the banana bread.

School Board votes to start closure process for Friendship Academy BY DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

On Dec. 17, the Baltimore City School Board rejected the school district’s recommendation to renew Friendship Academy of Science and Technology’s operator for three years. “They rejected our recommendation to renew them for three years, non-renewed the operator, and instructed staff to begin the COMAR closure process,” said Edie HouseFoster, spokesperson for Baltimore City Public Schools. COMAR stands for Code of Maryland Regulations. The board did not, technically, vote to close FAST, however. “We have to conduct the COMAR closure process before the board can vote to close FAST,” House-Foster clarified. According to City Schools, the state’s closure process requires the district to conduct an additional study of the school recommended for closing and release a report on its findings. That study will consider multiple factors including educational programs, enrollment trends, student relocation, and the school, or schools, where students will be relocating.

When the study is completed district staff will hold a meeting at FAST to share the findings of the study, hear feedback from the school community, and answer questions about the process. City Schools will also hold a public hearing to provide an opportunity for interested community members to testify before the board on whether to close the school or keep it open. Finally, the board will hold a vote on the recommendation to close the school. “The vote will be in February,” said HouseFoster. In the meantime, Councilman James Kraft and State Senator Bill Ferguson (46th) have requested that the board prepare a public fact sheet on the recommendation to close FAST and to open a new elementary middle school in the Southeast. Said Ferguson: “The closure process outlined in Maryland’s education regulations is an important protocol for ensuring that students are not severely impacted from the closure of their public school. We must take this process seriously to ensure that students have access to a better educational opportunity and to ensure that the Canton building is put to best possible use.”

CORRECTION: In the Dec. 11 Baltimore Guide article “Mel Stachura receives proclamation from mayor’s office,” we made a mistake. Stachura did not receive a proclamation from the mayor’s office; it was a City Council Resolution from Councilman Jim Kraft. The resolution congratulated Stachura for helping to form and leading the Little Italy Property Owners Association over the last two years. It also recognized his continuous dedication to the community. The Baltimore Guide regrets the error.

LICO to initiate Little Italy ambassador program by DANIELLE SWEENEY DSWEENEY@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The Little Italy Community Organization will roll out a neighborhood ambassador program for Little Italy in the spring of 2014. The program, says Gia Blatterman, president of LICO, is privately funded and will consist of paid, off-duty police officers and neighborhood volunteers who patrol, answer questions, give directions, help visitors, and provide a “good neighborhood feeling” in the Little Italy community. The ambassadors will be a complement to police foot patrols and will be on the street from approximately dinnertime until the businesses close, Blatterman says.

“We already have activity on our streets from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. and from 2-5 p.m. we have diners,” she says. The ambassadors will be readily identifiable by their colorful shirts, ambassador logo, and caps. “The off-duty Baltimore City police officer ambassadors will have direct radio access, which means 911 will not have to be called,” Blatterman notes. LICO is also considering renting a neighborhood security vehicle, which would be a presence in the community and be parked in a public place as well as driven by the ambassadors. She emphasizes, however, that the ambassadors would primarily be patrolling on foot, not from the vehicle. According to Blatterman, LICO has about $25,000 in commitments from Little Italy residents and businesses to fund the program, and she hopes to have as many businesses and residents on board as possible. She says the impetus for the Little Italy ambassadors program is twofold. “Our community is the safest in the city, and we don’t want to lose that. We saw a bit of extraordinary criminal activity over the summer, and we have zero tolerance for it,” she says, adding, “It’s not just a security issue, though. It’s also about promoting the community.” Blatterman says that LICO will decide on whether the ambassadors will have a neighborhood security vehicle by the end of January. “We’re leaning toward it, but have not decided on that point,” she says. Blatterman adds that while LICO is the vehicle for getting the ambassador program started, “it is a Little Italy thing, not a LICO thing.” “We want everyone to be involved and have a sense of ownership.”

Since a summer assault and robbery on a restaurant worker, Little Italy leaders have been looking for ways to increase security in the community.

Pompei school up for sale; future uncertain by ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

A former Catholic school in Highlandtown is up for sale, and the pastor says that apartments are one possible use for the building. “We have a letter of intent for turning the school into apartments,” said Father Luigi Esposito—known in the neighborhood as “Father Lou”—of Our Lady of Pompei Church at Claremont and Conkling streets in Highlandtown. Two and a half years after the Archbishop Borders School left Pompei for Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, five blocks south, the Pompei school building is up for sale, listed at $755,000. The school was built in the late 1950s. Originally called Our Lady of Pompei, the school became Archbishop Borders in 2002, when Our Lady of Pompei merged with St. Elizabeth School. Esposito still has hope that the building may yet serve some educational purpose. “My favorite alternative is leasing the school to somebody who could use it for the good of the community,” he said, “a community learning center, computer learning center, or something like that.” At one point, Esposito’s preference seemed like a strong possibility. With Bob Parsons— an alumnus of Our Lady of Pompei who went on to found GoDaddy.com—Esposito approached the University of Baltimore with the idea for a learning center. The university, according to Esposito, liked the idea, because it would have put the institution in touch with the Latino community. “They had no contact at that time,” said Esposito. A $50,000 feasibility study was conducted, but that was the end of it. “After they did the feasibility study, they

told us it wouldn’t go any further,” said Esposito. The priest says that, since then, he has had “a few nibbles” on the learning center idea, but in the end it’s not his decision to make: “The Archdiocese is running the whole show.” “As of now, the alternative seeming to go through is selling the school and yard,” he added. “My preference would be for leasing, for many reasons. First, it could be used as a community center. Second, it would be continuous revenue—not one big sum, and that’s it.” Esposito notes that the gymnasium—the last component of the church and school complex to be built, in the late 1960s—is not for sale. The gym houses a local youth basketball program, an after-school program, Boy Scouts, Narcotics Anonymous, and a bocce league. Currently, the church serves about 250-300 first generation Italians, “wherever they are in the state,” Esposito said, noting that many of them are hard-working business owners. “Even though they do not come on weekends, because of work, they still come for counseling and spiritual assistance,” he said. “ They’re rather generous, as best as they can be.” This July, Esposito will have served as Our Lady of Pompei’s pastor for 50 years. He has witnessed the first stone being laid for the Southeast Anchor Library, the opening of Santoni’s Super Market, the closing of Santoni’s, and many other community milestones. He is proud of his church and neighborhood. “Everything you see, the whole block, was built by the blood and sweat of the Italian immigrants,” he said. “They built a house, then a church, then a school, and then a gymnasium,” he said. “It belongs to the community. It doesn’t belong to me.”

Developer plans tech, art and nonprofit community for Haven Street by ERIK ZYGMONT EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

The King Cork & Seal building, 101 N. Haven St., is just a starting point for David and Shelley Seibert, who say they want to revitalize the entire Haven St. corridor down to Boston St. “It’s a regressed area that we’re trying to bring new life into,” said David Seibert. In the meantime, 101 N. Haven St. is well underway, at “about 80 percent of where we want to be,” he said. The building is nearly filled with businesses that meet certain criteria: They’re either nonprofits, tech startups, or arts enterprises. There are no retail shops or restaurants. There are a screen-printer, an “underground” science lab, a developer of cell-phone charging kiosks, and several others. “We’re clearly marketing to a certain niche,” said Seibert. The entire third floor of the building houses the Emerging Technology Center, a venture of the Baltimore Development Corporation that houses nascent tech startups and “incubates” them, plying them with infrastructure and connections to increase the odds of success.

ETC lists close to 70 startup companies on its website, and the incubator has another facility on the Johns Hopkins University Eastern campus. NV3 Technologies, which designs, manufactures, markets and sets up cell-phone charging kiosks in airports, bars, colleges, hospitals and anywhere else that desires one, is a graduate of ETC and one of the earliest tenants at the King Cork & Seal building. “It’s a great building,” said Patrick Wagner, sales and production manager for NV3. “They’ve done an awesome job renovating it.” The first-floor space at 101 N. Haven St. is one of a few offices and facilities that allow NV3 to conduct their entire business—from design through manufacturing through sales—within Baltimore. The Seiberts say that they have set up their building—and their rental terms—for similar clients. “If you’re a startup company and you’re new, you really need to know what you’ll be paying so you can plan,” said Shelley Seibert. The rent at King Cork & Seal, according to David Seibert, is “well below 50-percent” of

that for similar space in the city, plus there are no “pass-throughs,� or extra charges for services like snow removal or landscaping. And, the rent is fixed. “We need to be able to have these companies have a fixed budget for 5, 7, 8, 10 years,� he added. “One of the biggest attractions of our business plan is that it’s fixed.� Seibert grew up in northeast Baltimore, but his mother hails from the Southeast. Auggie’s Repair Shop, an auto mechanic shop at Esther Place and N. Clinton St.—near the intersection of Fayette St. and Highland Ave.—was owned by his grandfather and is run today by his uncle. “We’re very entrenched in the area,� said Seibert. “There’s definitely a personal connection.� Seibert, who owns a mechanical firm called Control Tec which has been in Highlandtown for 20 years, said that he started Metro Development—his company which developed 101 N. Haven St. and will, he says, develop the corridor down to Boston St.—10 years ago. The dream, he added, started with the acquisition of 101 N. Haven St. rather than before. “After we got to know some of the community and their needs, we saw that there could be a positive thing, and that’s what started it all,� Seibert said.

He added that the city has shown its support, from Mayor Stephanie RawlingsBlake to Lt. William Colburn of the Southeastern District, who has helped clear out some of the illicit behavior in the area, especially behind 101 N. Haven St. In addition to acquiring and renovating dilapidated old properties along Haven St., Seibert also has plans for the railroad property running behind the buildings on the east side of the road. A green, bike- and walking-path, which would tie in to the future Canton Crossing stop on the Red Line, may be in the future, he said. “[The railroad] gives us the ability to have commuting space, but it also gives us an ability to have more parking,� he added. Seibert is not worried about attracting enough small businesses to sustain his venture along the corridor. “The momentum is now so good with the tech community we’re after,� he said. “Them coming over here has given it more fuel.�

Voltage: Two police officers reportedly maced CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

8 and 14, four underage patrons were caught drinking in the club. Documents state that on the night of Nov. 7-8, the police conducted special investigation of the club’s “College Night,” advertised at voltagenightclub.com as “18 to Dance 21 to Drink,” with an open bar for college-ID-holding men and women until 10 p.m. Another police report, written by a Detective Kincaid, alleges general disorder during the early morning hours of Nov. 1, Halloween night, as well as liberal use of mace/pepper spray. “Detective Kincaid observed security personnel (Voltage employees) walking around and spraying people that were cooperating and attempting to leave,” says the report. The document goes on to state that Kincaid himself, who was talking to a patron, was not spared. “Mr. Louis Principio, the owner of Voltage Nightclub, arrived on a golf cart and stopped next to Det. Kincaid, who was in full uniform, and the patron,” it says. “Mr. Principio brandished a bottle of mace/pepper spray and sprayed both the unknown white male and myself.”

The report goes on to state that, when questioned, Principio told the detective that he had sprayed him because, having accidentally sprayed himself earlier, he couldn’t see. The report then expounds on the dangers of operating a golf cart in a crowd and spraying mace/pepper spray while under the effects of such spray. In another report, Lt. William Colburn of the Southeastern District wrote that the club is taking up police resources. “The need for vast police resources at Voltage Nightclub greatly detracts from police presence in other neighborhoods,” he wrote. Principio did not immediately respond to a message left at a phone number listed for him in the Liquor Board documents. Principio, of Sparks; Dudley Taylor, of Glen Arm; and Martin Manescu, of Baltimore City, own Whiskey Jacks LLC, the company behind Voltage Nightclub which holds the liquor license, according to Liquor Board documents. The board granted a transfer of a liquor license from 2312-16 Boston St. to the Travel Plaza on Dec. 6, 2012. Nearby businesses including Baltimore Truck Wash and McDonald’s wrote letters in support of the transfer. According to a transcript, Liquor

Board Chairman Stephan Fogleman said that “based on the locations and excellent security that you’re promising to maintain, there’s going to be a de minimis impact on the general health, safety, and welfare of the community, including crime, traffic, parking, and convenience.” Voltage Nightclub had faced a violation hearing scheduled for Dec. 19., but Whisky Jack’s attorney, Melvin Kodenski, requested a postponement due to the “voluminous” preliminary documents. A concrete date has not yet been set. Several parties want to see the club’s liquor license revoked. “Voltage needs to be shut down,” said State Senator Bill Ferguson (46th). “The business is clearly threatening the life and safety of residents in southeast Baltimore.” Joyce Adamski, president of the Southeastern District Police Community Relations Council, has collected signatures from 29 residents requesting that Voltage’s liquor license be revoked. She said that she collected the signatures in two hours on one afternoon, and plans to go out to get more. “I’m hoping that they close them down; I really do,” said Adamski. According to Harold Orenstein, one of the owners of Toby’s Dinner Theatre, it’s about time. “I can’t imagine that people waited this

BALTIMORE GUIDE 11

long to wake up to what was going on over there,” he said. “That’s my perspective.” Toby’s Dinner Theatre has been in Columbia for 34 years. From 2005 until the end of August this year, it had a second location in the Best Western Hotel, very close to Voltage in the Travel Plaza. He said that despite repeated assurances from Principio that the club would not begin playing loud music until 11 p.m., the noise started consistently between 9 and 9:30 p.m. every weekend evening. “When you’re doing ‘The Sound of Music’ at 9:30, and they’re hiding in the church, and all of a sudden you hear ‘ba-boom, ba-boom,’” said Orenstein, “that’s no good for our customers.” The second reason Toby’s left, Orenstein said, was because “it got to the point where our employees feared for their lives when leaving in the evening because of the unsavory characters that were in the area.” As a result of the closing of Toby’s Travel Plaza location, “we put 80 people on our payroll out of work,” Orenstein said. “It was sad to leave after we had built the business to that point,” he added. “But there are other things in life besides money.” According to Orenstein, Voltage Nightclub’s owners initially pitched the spot as a countryand-western hangout for patrons in their mid30s up through their 50s. “Well, that’s not their clientele,” he said.
