Guilford resident Cullen Little, 12, is not afraid to say what he thinks when he appears on the Booker Corrigan Show.
Cullen Little is unrepentant. What he says on air as part of the "Booker Coorigan Show" on 1300 AM is what he believes. Even if his opinion is not popular, or may appear incorrect in hindsight, Cullen is standing by his view. "If I had any regrets I couldn’t keep doing [the radio show]," he said. Cullen doesn’t pull his punches either. Earlier in the year, he said on air the Ravens would be best served by letting quarterback Joe Flacco sign somewhere else next year. Despite Flacco leading his team to the Super Bowl, Cullen isn’t walking back his comments. "In my opinion he’s so inconsistent he could never be back [to the Super Bowl]," Cullen said. This stance is pretty brave for any broadcaster, especially one working in a tough sports …

Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke said her district fared very well during the hurricane compared to the June derecho.
Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, whose district covers much of North Baltimore, said her district fared much better in the wake of Hurricane Sandy than it did following the June derecho. Clarke, who introduced a resolution calling for a hearing with BGE after power outages plagued the district following the derecho, said she has been pleased with the response so far. "I have some problem places, but I’m working with the Emergency Operations Center and BGE. By and large we were very blessed that it was not as severe as it could’ve been and we were prepared," Clarke said. She said there was still a pocket of houses in Guilford that went eight days without power in June, and also lost power in the storm, but she is working to get that situation…

Around noon Wednesday, as temperatures began to soar into the upper 90s, Beth Albright was outdoors planting purple irises. But Albright—the self-proclaimed “guerilla gardener of Newland Road”—wasn’t phased by the stifling weather. "I love the physical labor, even in the heat," Albright said. Since retiring five years ago, Albright, 63, has made it her job to maintain the gardens in the 3500 block of Newland Road, which were once overrun by weeds. Now, the Guilford street’s gardens are adorned with plants donated by neighbors. Despite often finding herself covered in poison ivy and sweat, the former psychotherapist said she likes that gardening keeps her busy. "This is how I stay out of trouble," she said.

Patch wants to know whether readers feel neighborhoods are treated equally by the police.
Following the robbery of two women near the Roland Park Shopping Center last week the police responded by placing an officer and a car at the shopping center for large portions of the day. After a spate of burglaries in Guilford the Northern District assigned two foot patrol officers to that neighborhood in the fall. But after a murder on Halloween night at the Yau Bros. Chinese Carryout in the 2900 block of Greenmount Avenue, some merchants bitterly complained about a lack of police presence enabling crimes like that to happen. So Patch wants to know what our readers think. Do neighborhoods receive equal police protection? Tell us in comments.
