Hottie Property

Posted 2/15/2006

Someone with the same name as New York television reporter, former WJZ-TV news anchor, and eye candy Sade Baderinwa purchased last December one of 32 luxury condos in the new Spinnaker Bay tower at Inner Harbor East, according to state and city property records. Baderinwa paid $850,000 for her 2,200-square-foot unit, joining real-estate developer David Kornblatt in the waterfront building, which also has 316 rental apartments. No word on whether Baderinwa plans to use her new pad as a pied-à-terre for trips back to the homeland, or as an investment property; she wouldn’t return calls.

James and Sarah Brady Comment on the Vice President’s Hunting Mishap

WASHINGTON - February 12 - James and Sarah Brady made comments today related to Vice President Cheney’s reportedly accidental shooting yesterday in Texas.

“Now I understand why Dick Cheney keeps asking me to go hunting with him,” said Jim Brady. “I had a friend once who accidentally shot pellets into his dog - and I thought he was an idiot.”

“I’ve thought Cheney was scary for a long time,” Sarah Brady said. “Now I know I was right to be nervous.”

Snow Panic!

Quick, hon, break out the plastic lawn chairs-don’t want nobody stealing my parking spot

Nothing strikes fear into the heart of every Baltimoron quite like the specter of precipitation falling from the sky in the form of fluffy white crystals.

Over the weekend of Feb. 10-12, meteorologists and newscasters and government agencies warned the good people of Maryland that snow was in the forecast. Maybe a lot. Maybe a little. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe the next day. Might be a Nor’easter. Might be a couple of showers. Either way, they warned us, it was time to panic!

In the counties, some kids were sent home early from school early on Friday in anticipation of a storm that was supposed to come over the weekend. The Maryland Emergency Management Agency held a Super Important Snow Meeting to “increase its readiness level” for the coming storm. And all afternoon, the good reporters at WBAL Radio (1090 AM) kept the panic attacks coming with regular warnings about the storm that may be dropping a foot of snow on the city. Or maybe three inches. But really, who’s counting?

3:10 p.m. Traffic reporter Parker Shane: “A note of caution to the drivers out there, again, the forecast is for tomorrow to have snow, so let’s not start having accidents all along the Beltway this afternoon, several incidents coming in all at the same time now, mostly on the beltway, so please take it easy.”

5:30 p.m. Insta-Weather meteorologist John Collins: “There will be quite a bit of snow, the potential for it anyway, starting late tomorrow morning.”

6:30 p.m. Insta-Weather CHIEF meteorologist Tom Tasselmyer: “Most areas around Baltimore [will be] in the three to eight to six inches of snow range.”

MEMA Increases Readiness Level As Winter Storm Nears Maryland

REISTERSTOWN (February 10, 2006)—The Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) will increase its readiness level at 6 p.m. today in preparation for the winter storm forecast for the weekend.

While there is no plan at present to activate the State Emergency Operations Center, or SEOC, at Camp Fretterd, MEMA has notified state agencies with transportation, public safety and citizen assistance responsibilities that they are on call should activation occur.

This afternoon, MEMA hosted a conference call with local emergency managers, state agencies and the four National Weather Service offices that cover Maryland (Wakefield, Va., Mount Holly, N.J., Pittsburgh and Sterling, Va.), during which forecasters provided emergency planners with current estimates of storm track and strength. . . . A conference call is scheduled for Saturday at noon, after which MEMA will provide an update on state preparations.
