Regarding your article about our church working with a casino to promote jobs for city residents, the story may have conveyed the wrong impression about our view of the Sabbath ( "Casino, church team up to promote jobs to city residents," Feb. 23). Our church's basic spiritual belief is that "the first day of the week is [in fact] the Lord's Day, and Christian Sabbath, and is to be kept sacred to religious purposes, by abstaining from all secular labor and sinful recreations, by the devout observation of all the means of grace, both private, and public, and by preparation for that rest that remaineth for people of God. " Indeed, all Christians and even non-Christians are familiar with this fundamental bedrock Baptist spiritual belief.

Dozens of Baltimore residents walked into Upton's Union Baptist Church Sunday. They were dressed fastidiously in dark suits and dark dresses. Their eyes turned toward the stage where they saw an odd sight for a house of worship: A gambling advertisement and an oversize pair of red dice. Horseshoe Baltimore's local hiring efforts stretched into church Sunday afternoon as part of a 14-district tour of Baltimore to try to hire city residents for the casino's 1,700 jobs. Rev. Alvin C. Hathaway, Sr. acknowledged the unusual pairing of a casino with a church, but he said churches have a duty to help their community members obtain employment.

The thud of nail guns and screech of drills echoed inside the cavernous shell of exposed cement, silver ventilation shafts and metal framing of the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore rising on Russell Street. As cement trucks rumbled over stubborn patches of ice outside, Chad Barnhill, the casino's general manager, showed off what will be the 122,000-square-foot, two-story casino floor. The work to raise the city's first and only casino is "progressing along very well" and is "on pace" for an August or September opening, despite the recent foul weather, Barnhill said.

Ricky Dobbs paused for a moment. The former Navy quarterback was trying to explain what it meant to play against rival Army during his time at the Annapolis school. But he needed a few seconds to organize his thoughts. “Its just special,” Dobbs finally said in a telephone call Wednesday. “It's hard to put into words, but we have so much respect for our military academy brothers. But we want to beat them bad, too. There's a ton of pride on the field when Navy plays Army.” After Dobbs graduated in 2011, he never expected to compete in the historic rivalry again.
