Konstantine J. "Gus" Prevas, an attorney who specialized in immigration issues and set policy to integrate the Baltimore City Fire Department, died of heart disease Sunday at his Towson home. He was 86. Born in Baltimore and raised on Patterson Park Avenue, he worked alongside his parents, who were immigrants from a village near Sparta, Greece. They ran a Broadway Market business — a soda fountain in the summer months, a confectionery store with fruits and nuts in the pre-Christmas months, and chocolates and Easter candies in the spring.

Each year, when The National Herald issues its ranking of the 50 Wealthiest Greeks in America, two Baltimoreans usually make the list: Peter Angelos and John Paterakis . Angelos, a trial lawyer and majority owner of the Orioles, appears on this year's list at No. 21, with an estimated net worth of $450 million. But McDonald's bun magnate and Harbor East developer Paterakis is nowhere to be found. Last year he came in 39th, with $240 million. Could he possibly have fallen from that height to below this year's No. 50, Chartwell Hotels founder George Tsunis , who has a measly $72.5 million in the bank?

If no man is a hero to his valet, few writers are heroes to their copy editors, who, like the valet, must pick up the strewn garments and make the client presentable for public display.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. Use it in a sentence in a comment here or on his blog, You Don't Say, and the best sentence will be featured next week. This week's word: BORBORYGMUS Borborygmus (pronounced bor-bo-RIG-mus ) is the familiar rumbling or gurgling sound you hear as gas and fluid move through the intestines.

From the outside, Don Pedro's Musica Latina on Broadway looks like anything but a music store. You might guess it's a country-western emporium. Maybe even a secondhand sports-equipment store. Inside its display window, there are soccer balls, wool leopard-print comforters and dozens of sneaker boxes. But behind all that is where its real product lies: some 200,000 CDs from everywhere in Latin America. For years, Baltimore's ethnic music stores like this one were spared from the digital music revolution that consumed their American counterparts because of their deep catalogs.
