Baltimore Oriole Nick Markakis is awarded the Babe Ruth Community Service Award. Click here for PDF Copy

Many professional sports stars feel compelled to give back to the community, often by way of establishing foundations with causes that they feel strongly about.  With the big paychecks that athletes receive, they certainly have the money to invest in such ventures, and the community tends to be thankful that such athletes use their money for generous means.  The world of Baltimore sports is no exception to this trend of athletes giving back, as the example of Nick Markakis illustrates.

The End of Snowmageddon?

June 10th, 2010 by Tim Teeling

WLOY’s take on Snowmageddon 2010. Click here for PDF Copy

We here at WLOY tried to resist a snow-related feature story.  It was the story that every other news outlet was covering.  It was the story that did not need to be covered anyway.  Just look out your window.  The story itself was doing the covering.  But Mother Nature seemed to know that there were a few reporters who were holding out on their snow coverage, so she added a few more inches to the record winters.  So WLOY has decided to bring in its perspective.  As we are now getting in the groove following spring break, we ask – nay! – we demand, surely, this must be the end of Snowmageddon.

The War on Plastic Bags

June 10th, 2010 by Tim Teeling

The Baltimore City Council introduces a bill to fight plastic bag pollution. Click here for PDF Copy

In the ever-ongoing fight against pollution, plastic bags have been a continual target.  Baltimore recently threw its weight behind an anti-plastic bag effort.  A bill that was endorsed last week by a committee of the Baltimore City Council would give food stores the choice of offering only plastic bags or encouraging their customers to cut back on or recycle the plastic bags if they continue to use plastics.  The specific terms of the bill stipulate that stores and restaurants must enroll in the city’s “plastic bag reduction program.”  This program requires that merchants provide plastic bag recycling bins and encourage the use of reusable bags.  Violators will face fines of $100 to $1,000 for multiple offenses.

Check out Woodward’s Auction House on the Avenue in Hampden! Click here for PDF Copy

If you are a member of the Loyola community, there is a good chance that you have trekked a couple of miles south of campus to Hampden or have at least heard of this distinctively Baltimorean neighborhood.  Hampden is known particularly for its commercial center on a four-block stretch of West 36th Street known as “The Avenue.”  Perhaps you have dined at restaurants such as Café Hon, King’s Pizza and Subs, or the Golden West Café, or browsed around some of the quirky shops like Atomic Books or the True Vine record shop.  Tucked in amongst the good eats and the trendy boutiques is another unique find: an auction house, Woodward’s Antique Gallery & Auction House, that is.
