The Hampden Happenings is one of the most
important tools that the HCC has to help spread
the word of our community activities. Members
of the HCC and the community spend hours
writing articles, reviewing the finished product
and making sure distribution is done timely and
sent out to as many residents that we possibly
can. This newsletter is here to keep you informed
of what is going on in and around Hampden and
Baltimore City. You may have noticed that we
started to branch out to let you know about some
events outside of Hampden. We feel that even if
is not happening here, it is important to let you
know what is going on all around Baltimore.
In the upcoming months, the HCC will be
producing an electronic survey to tackle the issues

We want to hear from you concerning the content
of our newsletter. We love to share stories,
events, and helpful tidbits about the Hampden

of life. Whether it is a letter to the president, a
suggestion for other community members or a
full blown article about Hampden we are looking
to you, the readers, to provide your own thoughts
opinions, and stories. If you ever have anything
you want to say or add into the newsletter, please

President’s Note: The following message was
received from Maria Allwine, the Green Party
candidate for Governor of the State of Maryland.
Due to a misunderstanding, Maria was not invited
to the Candidate’s Night Out Forum last month
so we have given her an opportunity to share her
Now that the primary is over, it’s time to elect
community leaders to public office, like myself,
who will govern with the interests of people
and communities first. The days of legislating
in favor of big business must, for the survival
of our state and ourselves, be over. Nurturing
and sustaining our small locally owned
businesses through a state-owned bank which
will invest in our neighborhoods, jump-start
Maryland’s move to renewable energy, loan to
homebuyers and entrepreneurs and contribute
to the state’s general fund is a good first step.
Closing the corporate tax loopholes, increasing
taxes on the hyper-wealthy, reregulating BGE,
securing significant rate concessions from
Constellation, returning development decisions
to neighborhoods, creating a Medicare for All
system, guaranteeing marriage equality and a
living wage are just a few of my priorities.
I am Maria Allwine, Green Party Candidate for
Governor of Maryland, and I ask for your vote on
November 2. Please call me at 443.929.6079 or
visit my website at www.allowineforgovernor.org.

First Meeting of the HEC Places Education in Spotlight
By John Bosley and Will Critz / Photo by John Bosley
The first meeting of the Hampden Education
Collaborative (HEC) was held on Thursday,
September 2 at the Republican Club on Chestnut
Avenue (many thanks to Mr. David Morgan
for the use of his fine hall!). The HEC is an
effort facilitated by the Education Committee
of the Hampden Community Council to
encourage sharing of educational resources,
methods, and talents across organizations in
the Hampden Community. The event was a
wonderful success, bringing together over 25
individuals representing all of the neighborhood
public, charter and private schools, as well as
representatives of the Roosevelt Recreation
Center, the Roosevelt Recreation Council, St.
Mary’s Outreach Center, other organizations
and businesses as well as several private
citizens who are interested in this new project.
HEC’s purpose is to provide a forum whereby
Hampden’s five schools, its civic organizations,
its local businesses and private individuals
exchange information about one another. This
information sharing has a goal of identifying
opportunities for community resources to
meet school needs, and for our schools to
engage in community-based activities for
educational enrichment as well as for service to
the community. HEC will encourage resource
sharing to take advantage of opportunities for
our schools to link education with service, and
also to open our schools to greater community
involvement inside the classroom.
The next HEC meeting is scheduled for Thursday,
October 7th at 4:00PM. We will meet at ACCE
(which occupies the former Robert Poole School)
on West 36th Street. Parking is ample, light
refreshments will be provided, and the meeting is
open to the public. All organizations, businesses
and individuals interested in maximizing the
educational potential of our community are
encouraged to attend!
This fall, Learning Inc. engaged entering
students in an expanded Student Orientation
Program named W.I.S.E. These initials stand
for “Welcomed and Initiated Students Excel.”
The program involves spending a total of
approximately 35 hours over a two-week period
just prior to the fall opening of classes to
prepare students to learn, to clarify behavioral
expectations with the students, and to build
relationships that LI staff believe are crucial to
future academic success. W.I.S.E. seeks to build
the following specific learning readiness skills,
among others: cooperation-collaboration, active
and effective listening, public speaking (giving a
presentation), skills in communicating feelings
proactively and effectively managing anger and
other negative feelings, and of course thinking
and reasoning skills.
This year’s W.I.S.E. was “tweaked” to reflect
lessons learned from its first try-out last year.
In the first week this year, LI kids engaged
in a variety of learning situations including
helping pack Meals on Wheels at the program’s
central facility in Highlandtown for two days.
This experience also enabled the participating
students to earn community service learning
hours. LI kids also explored Hampden by
participating in a scavenger hunt, as shown in
the photo that appears with this article. They
went on a kayaking excursion, played dodge ball,
and various arts activities were slotted into the
schedule. In the second week, activities included
building bridges from newspaper, building
towers from drinking straws, and an overnight
camping trip at Genesee Valley that boys and
girls took separately. Each day ended with
reflection period for a shared contemplation of
the day’s experiences.
St. Thomas Aquinas School will hold its second
monthly Family Night at Mamma’s Cucina
Restaurant on Thursday, October 14, from 3-9
p.m. Mamma Cucina’s is located at 1020 W.
41st Street, between Rite-Aid and Super Fresh.
The restaurant generously gives a portion of the
evening’s business to the school. Everyone in the
community is welcome! Be sure to get a special
St. Thomas School flyer at the restaurant and use
this to place your order.
The school will hold its annual Fun Fair on
Friday, October 29, from 1-2:30 p.m. in the
school parking lot and library. The fair will offer
games of chance, face painting, Halloween bingo,
fun food, and a “white elephant” table. Looking
further ahead, everyone is also invited to visit St.
Thomas Aquinas School during their Open House
that will cover the entire week of November 15-19
from 9-11 a.m. daily.

Hampden Elementary-Middle School #55 has ten
new staff members this fall! These include some
significant additions. Ms. Jerrolyn Hollinger is
in charge of a new Middle School Art Integration
program. Ms. Elena David is a Technology teacher
and Information Technology specialist who
will teach the students how to use of computers
effectively for education. Mr. Clinton Jennifer
has taken over the Physical Education program.
There are also two new Middle School teachers,
a Title I and an ESOL paraprofessional, a Mental
Health Clinician, a part-time Special Education
Aide, and a new Office Assistant. Please visit the
school and meet these newcomers!
The School 55 NAL team coached by Ms. Alston
default.asp) has moved up to Varsity Level this
year. The Middle School has joined the Science
Olympiad (http://soinc.org/welcome), the
Scripps Spelling Bee (http://www.spellingbee.
com) and the National Geographic Geography
geobee). Learn more by calling 410-396-6004.
Independence School will implement a school
garden program this year, joining a few other
Baltimore City schools that offer their students
practical opportunities to learn gardening and
agriculture. Chris Kosmides will oversee the
program. ISL1 participating students will earn
college-level horticulture credits. Chris took
interested students to BCPS’ Great Kids Farm
(http://www.greatkidsfarm.org/) in nearby
Catonsville on September 22 for their first
orientation. Staff of Great Kids Farm will continue
to mentor the students as they develop ISL1’s
garden plot on the vacant lot behind the school.
Chris says the students intend to sell or donate
the produce from the garden. If you have skills
and experience with gardening, landscaping,
or any other aspect of agricultural operations,
please volunteer to help Chris by calling him at
410-467-1090. Chris assures volunteers that
ISL1 students will do all the digging, hauling and
other “heavy lifting!” Principal Chris French
reminds us that ISL1 is seeking internship
opportunities for Juniors and Seniors during the
school year. If you think you could host an intern
and want more information, call Chris French at
the number above.
ACCE got their first year as a 6-12 Transformation
School got off to a great start, enrolling 53 new
students in the 6th grade according to ACCE
PREP’s Director John Zesinger. Your reporter
interviewed a PREP parent and two students
for this story. Ms. Lisa Lucas-Alston, mother
of two PREP students, tells us that she chose
ACCE PREP for its curriculum and educational
goals which she learned by visiting the BCPS
website (http://bit.ly/cpo1Af). Ms. Lucas-
Alston’s children helped make the decision,
liking what they learned about ACCE PREP. We
also interviewed Ms. Colleen Haggerty and Ms.
Tashay Lawrence from the incoming PREP class.
Ms. Haggerty says she transferred to ACCE PREP
from Hampden School #55 because she wanted
to try a new school. Thus far, she’s satisfied with
PREP although she says she sometimes misses
her School #55 friends. Ms. Lawrence likes ACCE
PREP’s commitment to help students succeed
and do their best and the encouragement she
gets to never give up. This reporter finds it
interesting that both these young women like
their math course and teacher. They say the
teacher, Ms. Sara Laing, makes math class
interesting by using many activities to tie math
to everyday life. Both 6th graders agreed they
would enjoy sharing after-school activities with
middle school students from Hampden School
#55 or St. Thomas Aquinas. As we ended our visit
Ms. Lawrence asked for a cheerleading program
with a charming sly smile. Maybe that’ll happen,
Tashay! Mr. Zesiger says there are about 4 slots
left in the 6th grade. (Class size is held to 18 or
fewer.) To learn more call him at 410-396-7607.
Hampden Library: Ms. Martha Retiring

well-deserved retirement. Stop by the Hampden Library during the week
before Halloween to say goodbye to Ms. Martha and enjoy a sweet treat.

Understanding and Managing High Blood Pressure
By Tammy Beckman
This month the focus of our column is high
blood pressure, also referred to as hypertension.
High blood pressure is one of the most common
chronic diseases in the United States, affecting
approximately 73 million people. Many people
who have high blood pressure may not know it
because often there are no immediate symptoms
associated with its onset. This can lead to
uncontrolled hypertension, which is the leading
cause of stroke and one of the major causes of
So what does high blood pressure mean? Blood
pressure refers to the force of blood pushing
against the walls of arteries in your body as it
courses through the body. The more narrow your
arteries and the more blood your heart pumps,
and the higher the your blood pressure.
Blood pressure is determined by two numbers
presented as one number on top of the other.
The top number is your systolic pressure, which
measures the force of blood in your heart when
your heart beats. The bottom number is your
diastolic pressure and measures the force of
blood in our arteries while your heart is relaxed.
For most individuals, an ideal blood pressure is
less than or equal to 120/80. If you have diabetes
or kidney disease, blood pressure less than
130/80 is good. However, blood pressure lower
than 120/80 is still considered ideal because for
all individuals the higher the blood pressure, the
greater your chance of heart attack, heart failure,
stroke, and kidney disease.
So what are the main risk factors for developing
high blood pressure?
1. Age. The risk of high blood pressure increases
as you age. For men, age older than 55 puts you at
greater risk for developing high blood pressure.
Women are more likely to develop high blood
pressure after menopause or after age 65.
2. Race. High blood pressure is more common
and tends to occur at earlier ages in than blacks
than whites. Serious complications, such as
stroke and heart attack, also are more common
3. Family history. High blood pressure tends to
run in families.
4. Being overweight or obese. The more you
weigh, the more blood you need to supply oxygen
and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume
of blood circulated through your blood vessels
increases, so does the pressure on your artery
walls raising your blood pressure.
5. Lack of physical activity. People who are
inactive tend to have higher heart rates. The
higher your heart rate, the harder your heart must
work and the stronger the force on your arteries.
Lack of physical activity also increases the risk
of being overweight, which causes high blood
6. Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco
immediately raises your blood pressure
temporarily. The chemicals in tobacco can also
damage the lining of your artery walls, which can
cause your arteries to narrow, increasing your
7. Too much salt (sodium) in your diet. Too
much sodium in your diet can cause your body
to retain fluid, which increases blood pressure.
Seventy-five percent of dietary sodium comes
from processed, prepared, and pre-packaged
foods. Examples include soups, tomato sauce,
condiments, canned goods, preserved meats
and prepared mixes. It is best to use these foods
sparingly in your diet.
8. Too little potassium in your diet. Potassium
helps balance the amount of sodium in your cells.
If you don’t get enough potassium in your diet you
may accumulate too much sodium in your blood,
which will increase your blood pressure.
9. Drinking too much alcohol. Over time, heavy
drinking can damage your heart. Having more
than two or three drinks in a sitting can also
temporarily raise your blood pressure.
10. Stress. High levels of stress can lead to a
temporary, but dramatic, increase in blood
11. Certain chronic conditions. Certain chronic
conditions also may increase your risk of high
blood pressure, including high cholesterol,
diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid disease, and
Fortunately there are several simple but critical
things you can do to prevent the development of
high blood pressure or to manage your already
existing high blood pressure. Adoption of a
healthy lifestyle is critical for the prevention
of high blood pressure and is an indispensable
part of the management of those with high
blood pressure. Lifestyle modifications that
have shown to lower blood pressure, even if you
are taking blood pressure medication, include
weight reduction in those individuals who are
overweight or obese, adoption of a healthy diet
that is rich in potassium and calcium and low
in sodium and saturated fats, regular physical
activity, and moderation of alcohol consumption.
Other lifestyle modifications that can help
control or prevent high blood pressure are
smoking cessation and reducing stress.
By making these simple lifestyle modifications,
you can decrease your high blood pressure,
enhance the effectiveness of your blood
pressure medication, and decrease your risk of
cardiovascular disease including heart attack
