I worked at Gino's from 1962 to 1970. Hamburgers were 15 cents, and cheese burgers were 20 cents. I am sure your readers remember. I started at $1 an hour and finished my employment at $2.20 when I graduated from college and entered the Marine Corps. Gino's was a great experience. I learned a lot about responsibility. It also assisted me with paying a portion of my private education to Loyola High School in Towson and 100 percent of my college tuition. To say Gino's was an important part of my life would be an understatement.

The continuing education of Ravens center Gino Gradkowski has involved everything from grappling with massive Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to making critical, last-second line calls to adjusting blocking assignments. Ever since six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk retired in February, Gradkowski has been learning on the job and experiencing growing pains while trying to hold his own against some of the biggest, most talented defensive linemen in the NFL. The center position demands a lot: intellect, technique and brute strength.

Gino's is coming to Camden Yards. The Gino's Burgers & Chicken operation at Camden Yards will be a licensing arrangement between the King of Prussia-based restaurant franchise and the stadium's concessionaire, Buffalo-based Delaware North Companies Sportservice. Sportservice President Rick Abramson confirmed the Gino's addition and restated his commitment to improving the amenities at Camden Yards that his company began last season, its first at Oriole Park. "We're here to please the palate of the Baltimore foodies," Abramson said.

It has been a rough transition for the Ravens at the center position, going from one of the best centers of his generation in Matt Birk to second-year player Gino Gradkowski. That says more about how underrated Birk may have been in his final couple of years in Baltimore than it does about Gradkowski's struggles. But quietly, perhaps because the Ravens have been losing, Gradkowski has been improving at the position over the past few weeks. And his performance Sunday was probably his best of the season.

The big, old-fashioned red, white and blue barber's pole twirls slowly on the front of the two-story Formstone-faced building on Ritchie Highway.It means Gino Stagi is on the job, as he has been since 1926.And about the only thing Mr. Stagi has changed in the 64 years that have made him a Brooklyn Park institution is that a toothpick hTC has replaced the omnipresent long cigars that for decades dropped ash all over customers.Wedged in the corner of his mouth, the splinter waggles as Mr. Stagi tells, in a strong Italian accent, how he started barbering for his grandfather at 9, came to America at 16 to see the "streets paved with gold" and has spent most of the last 64 years keeping Brooklyn Park men -- and a few women -- looking neat.

James E. Pappas, a country club manager who spent his career in the hospitality industry, died Wednesday of cancer at the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Glen Arm resident was 56. Born James E. Papademetriou in Baltimore and raised on Eastern Avenue in Highlandtown, he was a 1968 graduate of Polytechnic Institute, where he played football. He earned a business degree at University of Baltimore. As a young man, he worked alongside his father, Emanuel "Manny" Papademetriou, who managed restaurants in the Gino's fast-food chain, which was started by Baltimore Colts Hall of Famer Gino Marchetti.

In Dormont, a quiet neighborhood across the Monongahela River and over Mount Washington from Heinz Field, a nondescript family home is smack dab in the middle of the NFL's hardest-hitting rivalry. Walk inside the house and you would find family photo albums, old sports trophies and Terrible Towels - pretty standard stuff in Pittsburgh Steelers country. But the Ravens memorabilia? It's only when you see the recent photograph on the wall, the one of Bruce Gradkowski on an NFL field with his arm around his younger but bigger brother, Gino, that it finally starts to make sense.

Bill Pellington, who was known as the toughest and meanest outside linebacker in Baltimore Colts history and was defensive captain of the 1958 NFL championship team, died yesterday of respiratory failure associated with Alzheimer's disease at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Timonium resident was 66."He was the backbone of the Baltimore defense . . . a great football player and a fine human being," former Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas said yesterday. "The last few years have been difficult and we would all like to remember him as he was on the field, where he was always at his best."

While Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged Monday that the team is “feeling” the difference with the line calls now that first-year starter Gino Gradkowski is starting at center and not the retired Matt Birk , that shouldn't be taken as a sign that the coaching staff is singling Gradkowski out for the offensive line's struggles. In fact, Harbaugh praised how Gradkowski has held up physically, which was the big question mark given that he's considered undersized for his position.

Last Thursday, for the first time since the 2008 season, someone not named Matt Birk started for the Ravens at center. Gino Gradkowski, a second-year player out of small-school Delaware, made his first NFL start there. To the novice eye -- this writer included -- evaluating offensive line play can be a difficult endeavor, especially at center, where that player is in the middle of the mess and sometimes ends up blocking no one in particular. When I went back and watched the game again, I saw many plays when Gradkowski held his ground against big Denver Broncos defensive linemen Kevin Vickerson and Sylvester Williams.

For last year's 20th anniversary season at Camden Yards, the Orioles and its concessionaire, Delaware North Companies Sportservice, brought in local favorites Gino's Burgers and Chicken and Stuggy's to the yard along with Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant , a year-round restaurant located in the stadium's warehouse, and the Roof Top Deck in centerfield, an instant fan favorite. And then the Orioles did what they did. This year is more about tweaking, upgrading and responding to requests from fans — including, the Orioles acknowledge, vegetarians who were still making do with french fries and pizza.

He lined up at fullback, but from the moment he set foot in training camp in 1961, Jerry Hill understood his role with the Colts. "I was John Unitas' bodyguard," he said. For nine years, Hill policed the Baltimore backfield, protecting Unitas from defenders who thundered in to sack No. 19 or whoever was quarterbacking the Colts. Others got the glory; Hill got the satisfaction of a job well done. Did Unitas critique his blocking? "He would if I missed one," Hill said. Which wasn't often.

The new Gino's Burgers & Chicken in Glen Burnie will have its official ribbon-cutting on Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Gino Marchetti himself is expected to attend, along with other Baltimore Colts legends Stan White, Tom Matte, Art Donovan and Lenny Moore. The Glen Burnie Gino's Burgers & Chicken  is located in the same building used by Gino's in the 1950s.  The location, 7958 Ritchie Highway, is the first in Anne Arundel County for the revived franchise. Established under the name Gino's in 1959 and named for its co-founder, Baltimore Colt Hall of Fame defensive end Gino Marchetti, the restaurant franchise moved its headquarters to King of Prussia, Pa., before being purchased by the Marriott Corp.

ON AN extravagantly beautiful spring morning, with the lilacs and dogwood in bloom, I found Gino Brooks where he spends every night and starts every day -- in the cemetery. He's a self-described "half-dead" homeless alcoholic who makes his bed by the tombstones of long-dead millionaires. I arrived on the scene in a stylish automobile driven by a man who has operated a business in Baltimore -- he asked me not to say which -- for several decades. He took me to meet Gino because he finds it remarkable, as I do, that a man can live so long by wits and handouts and drink himself to sleep each night among the old-money dead of Baltimore.

When backup center Gino Gradkowski walks into M&T Bank Stadium for his first regular-season game as a member of the Ravens, he will have about 20 family members in the stadium. His big brother will be there, too, but he will be standing across the field on the Cincinnati Bengals' sideline. Bruce Gradkowski is the lone backup quarterback for the Bengals and a six-year NFL veteran. “We talk all the time,” said Gino Gradkowski, a fourth-round pick in April's draft. “He's a big shoulder for me to lean on. It helps me out a lot to have him. He's always helping me out and telling me what to expect and how to handle myself on and off the field.
