(BALTIMORE - October 10, 2011) - In an email to Marvin "Doc" Cheatham and other supporters of Easterwood's efforts to block a liquor license request in West Baltimore's Easterwood community, it was announced that the request before the liquor board was withdrawn:
Dr. Marvin "Doc" Cheatham, without your dedication to this inititative, I don't believe we could have done this in such short notice. The board and I appreciate and thank you for your hard work. I would also like to thank our Councilman Nick Mosby, who not only wrote a letter of support, but also was willing to come and speak on our behalf.
I called 410-396-4377 (Liquor Board) this morning and Mr. White informed me that the application had been withdrawn. I thank God and each and every one of you who called, signed our petition, or wrote a letter.
We will celebrate at our next community meeting. Please join us.

The Glover Report: It's Election Time!
Whether it's Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta - wherever, black people have to come to better understand a Delegate from a state Senator and a state Senator from a US Senator. We have to understand what the local Council does, what the state assembly does, and what is done in Congress. We also have to understand the legislation they write and who it impacts. Classic example: prisons. Somebody is voting for more and more prisons. My issue is that too many people who look just like me keep filling these cells. Currently, America has the Gold! It incarcerates 25% of the world's inmates, 40% who are black and male ... like me.
