With Ed Hale retiring as First Mariner's CEO and chairman, I only hope that Baltimoreans realize the importance of retaining this man in our area ("First Mariner's Hale steps down," Dec. 24). I've known Ed for several decades and he is a true Baltimorean, a philanthropist, a very good tennis player and a great moral leader. He is a true treasure. James A. Holechek, Baltimore

Ed Hale wants to buy the Baltimore Arena, but the city said the aging facility is not for sale. Two years after his departure from First Mariner Bancorp, the bank he launched and turned into the city's largest, Hale finds himself on the outside looking in. These days Hale operates out of a windowless office decorated with black-and-white photos of the port of Baltimore in a nondescript Rosedale office park. It's a far cry from his one-time office in a 17-story Canton tower with a commanding view of the harbor.

He is successful by any measure: a self-made multimillionaire, a world traveler, a fine athlete, a man who counts among his friends a senator, a governor, a mayor.So why was Ed Hale so nervous at a recent charity auction? Why, for a few unsteady moments, did he find himself deploring his decision to put himself on the block to benefit the Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Central Maryland?"I can't describe the feeling when they say the big event of the evening is a night out with Ed Hale," he reflected a few weeks after the fact, sitting in his office with its antique furniture, Oriental rugs and huge bay window overlooking not only the Port of Baltimore, where his trucking and shipping businesses are centered, but all of the city.

The city's Board of Estimates on Wednesday approved a six-month extension of naming rights for 1st Mariner Arena . The spending panel awarded the temporary extension to Arena Ventures LLC, which is run byEdwin F. Hale, the former CEO of 1st Mariner Bank. The extension was listed as a "month-to-month" deal that begins June 30 and ends Dec. 31. Arena Ventures has been in charge of advertising at the arena since 2002 and selected 1st Mariner as the arena's title sponsor. The extension allows the city more time to issue a request for proposals for naming and advertising rights, once Arena Venture's contract expires at the end of the month, officials said.

The Baltimore Blast, along with five other former Major Indoor Soccer League teams, have reached an agreement to partner with teams from the Professional Arena Soccer League to create a new league that is expected to consist of 20-plus teams throughout North America.

Ed Hale knows what a championship team looks like. After all, he's seen the Blast bring home five of its six Major Indoor Soccer League titles since he became owner of the team. So he's not hesitant in laying out his expectations for a Blast squad that's hoping to bring home its first MISL championship since 2009 on Saturday night against the Missouri Comets. "We fully expect to win," Hale said. "No ifs, ands or buts about it. " After winning the first game of the series in Missouri on Thursday, 21-12, the Blast could accomplish that task with a victory Saturday.

I would like to clarify some of the statements made in your article about Hale Properties and the Baltimore Blast leaving the Clarence H. Du Burns Arena ("In dispute with city, Hale moves businesses out," Feb. 28). The management fee to run the Du Burns Arena mentioned in the article has been declining over the years. In fact, the last agreement, which ended on January 21, included no management fee to be paid to Hale Properties to operate Du Burns Arena. Hale Properties was also responsible for paying all the operating expenses of running Du Burns Arena, and the Blast paid a rental fee to the city for use of office space there.

In the lobby of the Anchorage Towers in Canton, someone's swept the coins at the bottom of a burbling fountain into the shape of an anchor. Clearly that's not where Ed Hale's been throwing his money. Fourteen flights up in the penthouse, Hale, chief executive officer of 1st Mariner Bank, developer and owner of the Baltimore Blast professional soccer team, has used more than a little of his spare change to create a swank bachelor pad with breathtaking views of the city he has literally worked his way to the top of. But Hale wants to cash out and trade up. To move just feet down Boston Street into the top of a 17-story office tower he's building there, Hale is selling the condo he spent a decade molding to fit his definition of man-about-town luxury.
