Top Stories: Family Praises Caring Baltimore Cop, Hunt Cup on ’60 Minutes,’ Sascha’s Café Building Up for Sale

0 Written by: | Friday, Apr 28, 2017 5:03pm

Our top story this week offered some great press for the Baltimore Police Department, which has a very caring and dedicated member in Officer Pierre Dolcine.

Baltimoreans Dawson and Jennifer Nolley reached out to Baltimore Fishbowl writer Ed Gunts to share their touching tale involving Officer Dolcine. It all began with a nasty car accident at Northern Parkway and Loch Raven Boulevard. As they tell it, Jennifer and their two daughters, Elizabeth, 3, and Kathryn, nine months, were in a car at the intersection when their vehicle was sent airborne into a lamp post by another vehicle. Luckily, no one in the car was seriously hurt, but the girls still needed medical attention.

Here’s an excerpt from Dawson Nolley’s letter about what followed:

Office Dolcine was exactly what we needed and infinitely more than we could have hoped for. He was present, he was sincere, and he was genuinely concerned. He was helpful, not just to Jennifer and me, but to Elizabeth. Within seconds, he had her smiling and laughing. He made her comfortable with the EMT’s and the ambulance; he made her excited about a ride to the hospital.

Dolcine stuck around at the hospital, and even followed up with the family afterward. It made for a heartwarming account for a city scarred by tensions between police and residents. Click here to read the full letter.

Though The Circle is a provocative piece, with the requisite star power of Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, it doesn’t warrant more than the tepid audience reaction it’s received.The film, based on Dave Eggers’ novel, was designed to be more than a mildly biting look at the co-opting of our lives’ social media entertainment value.

The Wayfarer’s Handbook: A Field Guide for The Independent Traveler

In 2011, 25-year-old Washington, DC resident and Baltimore native Evan S. Rice couldn’t shake the feeling of being too comfortable in his decent job, affordable living situation, and the monotonous predictability of his life. Rather than take up a new hobby, as some of us might, he packed his bags and bought a one-way plane ticket to another continent. Rice, a financial consultant with longtime environmental interests, had consulted a calendar and was headed to Kenya to witness the great migration of wildebeests as they passed into the country from Tanzania. When that went well, he decided he might as well keep traveling. Read More →
