Ralph Moore's letter to the editor ("Must pools be closed to pay Paterakis?" May 1) and Dan Rodricks ' column the same day ( "Paterakis has another slice of city pie") said it all. Why is John Paterakis back at the pig trough again after we rewarded him so handsomely with tax credits and other considerations in the past to help build his empire in Harbor East? Also, where are the priorities of Baltimore's leadership in this cash-strapped city? What about our kids? This is politics as usual in Baltimore.

He was the millionaire businessman Mayor William Donald Schaefer called on more than two decades ago to help out with a big problem. Some 20 acres of lumberyards and warehouses between the then-newly redeveloped Inner Harbor and Fells Point faced an uncertain future. Schaefer wanted John Paterakis Sr., bakery magnate and campaign contributor, to do the city a favor and buy the land. For $11 million, Paterakis did, but the city backed down on a promise to buy back the industrial stretch later.

Most of the time John Paterakis is content to be inconspicuous, moving quietly yet effectively through the business day. Having his name in the newspaper, or calling a press conference, isn't his cup of tea, or in this instance, loaf of bread.All kinds of propositions come across his desk and it must take weeks to sort them out . . . those for rejection, the ones to talk about and the precious few he decides to pursue with intent. He's frequently mentioned as an important player in efforts to buy sports franchises but, to this point in his life, hasn't made a commitment to fun and games.

John Paterakis Sr., the baker and well-connected developer who bankrolled Harbor East, pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to two misdemeanor campaign finance violations and will pay $26,000 in fines and be barred from donating to Baltimore politicians until his probation ends in January 2012. Paterakis had been indicted on charges that he exceeded the allowable donations limits by contributing $6,000 toward a re-election poll commissioned by City Councilwoman Helen L. Holton. A major political and business power broker, Paterakis usually stays behind the scenes and on Friday declined Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney's offer to address the court.

That was quite a turnout a couple of weeks ago as Loyola College honored B-more mega-mogul John Paterakis. Some 1,200 folks filled the Renaissance Inner Harbor ballroom for the "2002 Business Leader of the Year Award Dinner." Loyola's Sel-linger School of Business and Management has been throwing the event each year since 1983. "This was the biggest, best attended, so far," says Sellinger School dean Lee Dahringer, "certainly the most popular we've had to date." Talk about a room packed with powerful people.

Baltimore's spending panel agreed Wednesday to give H&S Bakery $200,000 to move its Harbor East distribution center as part of a deal officials say will help keep the business in the city. The Board of Estimates approved the agreement without discussion. Moving the distribution center also stands to financially benefit its owner, John Paterakis, who can use the prime real estate for another purpose. The Harbor East land is eligible for millions of dollars in tax breaks. Comptroller Joan M. Pratt cast the only dissenting vote on the five-member board.

Harbor Point, a development project led by bakery magnate and developer John Paterakis Sr., will be the site of the headquarters for the combined Constellation-Exelon company if the proposed merger is completed, the energy giants announced Wednesday. The prospect of adding a new office tower to Baltimore's skyline excited city officials and the development community. But some were disappointed that the companies chose a site between Harbor East and Fells Point, rather than in the central business district.

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?

The plea deal had been negotiated long before John Paterakis Sr. made it official in a Baltimore courtroom on Friday. And the bread man turned Harbor East honcho seemed more than ready to sign off on his guilty plea to a couple of campaign finance violations and move on. Judge Dennis M. Sweeney had just started listing the terms of the agreement and the details of Paterakis' sentence. He had barely ordered the first fine, for $1,000 - and had yet to mete out a second, $25,000 penalty and probation - when Paterakis reached into a pants pocket, pulled out two blank checks and had a pen poised to fill them out. It was an impressively quick draw for the 80-year-old Paterakis, but then, he's written a lot of checks over the years.

John Paterakis Sr., the self-made baking magnate and developer of the Harbor East complex, was indicted Tuesday on two counts of campaign finance violations accusing him of contributing $6,000 to help pay for a city councilwoman's political poll. The councilwoman, Helen L. Holton, also was indicted for alleged campaign violations, after winning a dismissal two months ago of bribery charges in connection with the political survey. The new charges were handed up by a Baltimore grand jury at the request of State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh, whose three-year investigation of alleged corruption at City Hall has reached the highest rungs of the city's business community.

Back when I first joined The Baltimore Sun, a photographer and I were coming back from an assignment in Fells Point, and he was doing what all good old-timers do - pointing out significant sites along the way for a newbie. That's where Grace Hartigan paints, that's where the body turned up the other day. Waving toward some low-slung nondescript buildings where tractor-trailers were maneuvering on and off a narrow street, he said something like, "And that's owned by one of the most powerful men in town.
