BUSINESS

One hundred and sixty million dollars is a lot of money, a measure of the ambitious promise by new investors to give 1st Mariner Bank "one of the highest capital ratios of any Maryland bank" and save it from seizure by federal regulators. But it's also a measure of how far the Baltimore-based bank has fallen. When you lose nearly $100 million of shareholders' money over four years, it takes more than a couple of cupcakes to restock the larder. Success is by no means guaranteed.

When Baltimore Blast leading scorer Billy Ronson spoke out )) 10 days ago about the small crowds at the Baltimore Arena, it again led to speculation over where all the fans have gone.Attendance this season is down to an average of 6,348 through the team's first nine home Major Soccer League games, compared with a final season average of 8,550 last year. In the 1983-84 season, when Baltimore won its only championship, the team averaged 11,188, which still stands as a record for the franchise.

TCHale boosterThis is in response to Patty Perkins' letter regarding the Blast Booster Club and Ed Hale. I feel she should get all her facts before writing such a negative letter. Mr. Hale in no way insulted the booster club by creating his own fan club. Mr. Hale was very diplomatic and graceful toward certain booster-club officers who, while supposedly representing the Blast Booster Club, were seen wearing Wichita jerseys. This is not the way executive officers should act. While representing the booster club, they should be supporting the Blast.

Billy Ronson could hardly suppress his delight after agreeing to play for the Arena Soccer League team that is to begin a 10-game season here next May."It gives me a chance to finish my career in Baltimore, which is what I want to do," said Ronson, who was released by the Blast at the end of the Major Soccer League season and was not pursued by the Spirit, the new National Professional Soccer League team in town."It's nice to have the opportunity to decide for myself when I want to retire and not have someone else do it for me," he 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. The Milwaukee Wave, St. Louis Ambush, Missouri Comets, Rochester Lancers and Syracuse Silver Knights will join the Blast in the new league. All six franchises had their contracts with the United Soccer Leagues, which runs the MISL, expire last month after the 2013-14 season concluded.

While Baltimore Blast owner Ed Hale battles through tough economic times with his banking and development businesses, he said he's certain those issues won't affect the team as it begins defense of its National Indoor Soccer League championship. "There's not any connection whatsoever," Hale said. "The staff that I have with [Blast general manager Kevin Healey], it's self-sustaining, and that's an anomaly with [professional indoor] soccer because most of the time you lose money with soccer operations.

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.

She goes by a single name, one shared by a flowering herb. And when she isn't working as a spokeswoman for Arundel Habitat for Humanity, she is a feng shui consultant. So Yarrow, of all people, knows the value of natural beauty and good chi in a house. That's why, on some level, she understands why Habitat is having trouble giving away the four houses it's building in Curtis Bay and Brooklyn. "It is boarded-up houses, it is burned-out houses, it is bricks through windows, a lot of dogs.

No excuse for BelleHow can Albert Belle make $80,000 per game and behave so poorly?I am no great fan of baseball, but these types of actions by highly overpaid professional athletes make my skin crawl. If I carried myself in my profession like Belle does in his, I would be jobless in less than a week.As soon as it is possible to get rid of Belle, the Orioles' management should not waste a second in offering him the door.Jim McFallsHanoverHow to cope with bad yearWith respect to the 1999 major-league baseball season, an advance reality check sadly indicates that perhaps no team missed reaching its potential by as wide a margin as the Orioles.

In many past summers, Blast owner and Major Indoor Soccer League chairman Ed Hale was confronted with two frustrating questions as a new season approached: Which franchises are coming and which are going? Before last year, three teams left the league - including then-defending league champion La RaZa de Monterrey and the Blast's longtime rival Philadelphia KiXX. Added to the fold were franchises in Missouri, Omaha and Chicago to form a five-team league which also included the mainstay Milwaukee Wave.
