As the snow began to fall, neighborscame out and began the ritual of shoveling andsalting the sidewalks and steps of our own homes,as well as of our neighbors. The older womannext door, the two students up the street and thefamily who has been a neighbor of mine for aslong as I’ve lived here all need not worry about thesnow in front of their homes. The gentlemen ofthe neighborhood took charge and made sure thatthe walk was clear. I saw this happening not onlyon my block, but on other blocks as I made myway out to do some shopping.

historic hampden happenings • January 2010historic hampden happenings • January 2010 Betty Callahan,the RemarkableWomanBy John BosleyWhen even those of us who are sufferingfinancially will somehow find a way to expressthe spirit of the season by exchanging gifts withfamily and loved ones, we want to pay homage toa Hampden community member for everythingshe does to make life better for the people ofHampden dwellers every day of the year.This remarkable woman is Betty Callahan, longtimemember of the Hampden CommunityCouncil and an active HCC Board Member. Ifyou’ve ever attended a Community Councilmeeting, you’ve seen Betty. She is always seatedin the front row, and it’s a rare meeting whenshe doesn’t speak up on one or more issues! Inaddition to reporting on the activities of the HCCFaith-Based Committee that she chairs, andwhich gathers information about the religiouslife of our neighborhood, you can also see Betty atwork in the back of the meeting room, countingout bundles of this newsletter to be distributedto Hampden homes by community volunteers.Betty provides these services on behalf of theCouncil just because it’s like her to “pitch in.”Additionally, though, Betty has undertaken majorprojects partly or wholly on her own to make lifein our community better. And although Betty isoutspoken at our Council meetings, her non-Council projects are mostly unknown except tothose who benefit from what she does. This storydescribes some of the significant good works thatBetty performs. This is a partial list only; she willstep up to help with other worthwhile projects asthese occur.Betty is a hard-working member of the HCCEducation Committee, and she takes a specialinterest in our elementary-middle school,Hampden School #55. As our newer communitybasedschools, ACCE and Independence,develop closer ties with Hampden, Betty is sureto be working just as hard to help them. Now,all of this is still HCC business, but in additionBetty purchases and donates hundreds of dollarsworth of needed supplies to Hampden School#55 every year as a personal gift. Although shelives on a fixed income, she somehow finds waysto earn money for these supplies. Needless tosay, the children and staff of the school think theworld of her for doing this!Betty is also the key person who keeps ourHampden United Methodist Church Food Pantryoperating and staying afloat. She took over itsleadership when it was disorganized and losingmoney, and her efforts have brought it back tofinancial health and made it more effective asa source of food for those who need help withfeeding their families.Betty is an active, long-time member of theHampden-Woodberry-Remington United Ministry,which is a confederation of church congregationsin these three adjoining neighborhoods. TheMinistry performs outreach and service toBetty purchases and donates hundreds ofdollars worth of needed suppliesto Hampden School #55 every year.Photo by Nathalie Conefamilies, and sponsors a number of other faithbasedcommunity activities.Finally, Betty was a member and verger of theMt. Vernon United Methodist Church, whichwas so badly damaged by fire last summer thatit was decided to close it. Typically, when Bettyrealized that the realtors responsible for sellingthe church property were not working hardenough (in her opinion!) to find a buyer, sheused her Faith-Based Committee column spacein the Hampden Happenings to publish fact thatthe church property is on the market and alsopublished the name and phone number of the“foot-dragging” realtor!Betty’s good works are grounded in a deepreligious faith. It is not proper for a non-religiousperson like me to apply any religious label toanother person, but to me Betty Callahan’s lifehas followed the example of another Marylandwoman, Elizabeth Ann Seton, whose churchelevated to sainthood in part for her tirelessefforts to help and care for the poor in New YorkCity two hundred years ago.This short story about Betty’s contributionsto make Hampden better is not the sort ofpublicity she would ever ask for. I know that shedoes appreciate a private word of appreciationfrom those whose lives she has changed for thebetter—and to me that includes every resident ofHampden. So if you live here please come to thenext Community Council meeting, take time tointroduce yourself and say “Thanks, Betty!” It willlift her spirits—and you’ll feel good about it too!

Call me and I will behappy to pass it along: 410.889.8549.You may be aware that The American Recoveryand Reinvestment Act of 2009 expanded the firsttimehomebuyer credit by increasing the creditamount to $8,000 for purchases made beforeNovember 30, 2009 and that the credit no longerneeded to be paid back (See Treasurer’s ChestJuly 2009 Issue). This valuable credit helped spurhome sales across the country. According to theNational Association of Realtors®, as of October2009, pending home sales have risen for ninemonths in a row. Many were fearful of what laidahead with the credit set to expire.On November 6th, a new law went into effectextending the first-time homebuyer creditfive months and it expanded the eligibilityrequirements for purchasers. The Worker,Homeownership, and Business Assistance Actof 2009 extended the deadline for qualifyinghome purchases from Nov. 30, 2009, to April30, 2010. Additionally, if a buyer enters into abinding contract by April 30, 2010, the buyerhas until June 30, 2010 to settle on the purchase.The maximum credit amount remains at $8,000for a first-time homebuyer—that is, a buyer whohas not owned a primary residence during thethree years up to the date of purchase.For all qualifying purchases in 2010, taxpayershave the option of claiming the credit on eithertheir 2009 or 2010 tax returns.A taxpayer who purchases a home after Nov. 6must use this new version of Form 5405 to claimthe credit. Likewise, taxpayers claiming thecredit on their 2009 returns, no matter whenthe house was purchased, must also use the newversion of Form 5405. Taxpayers who claim thecredit on their 2009 tax return will not be ableto file electronically but instead will need to filea paper return.A taxpayer who purchased a home on or beforeNov. 6 and chooses to claim the credit on anoriginal or amended 2008 return may continueto use the current version of Form 5405.The new law raises the income limits for people whopurchase homes after Nov. 6. The full credit will beavailable to taxpayers with modified adjusted grossincomes (MAGI) up to $125,000, or $225,000 forjoint filers. Those with MAGI between $125,000and $145,000, or $225,000 and $245,000 for jointfilers, are eligible for a reduced credit. Those withhigher incomes do not qualify.ZissimosBar1023 West 36th Street in HampdenCall 410-467-4707A Hampden Tradition for More Than 50 YearsThe new law also provides a “long-time resident”credit of up to $6,500 to others who do notqualify as “first-time homebuyers.” To qualifythis way, a buyer must have owned and used thesame home as a principal or primary residencefor at least five consecutive years of the eightyearperiod ending on the date of purchase of anew home as a primary residence.Dependents are not eligible to claim the credit,you must be over 18 on the date of the purchase toclaim the credit and the credit is not available ifthe purchase price of the home is over $800,000Members of the Armed Forces and certainfederal employees serving outside the U.S. havean extra year to buy a principal residence in theU.S. and still qualify for the credit.
