  • Grand Prix not a 'game-changer'

     Grand Prix not a 'game-changer'
    The Grand Prix of Baltimore, the race that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake promised would be a "game-changer" has come and gone ("Grand Prix of Baltimore canceled through 2015, and likely beyond," Sept. 13). Apparently, the game changed and we missed...
  • The Grand Prix was never a good fit for Baltimore

     The Grand Prix was never a good fit for Baltimore
    It seems that when it comes to the doomed Baltimore Grand Prix, there is really no gray area. Baltimoreans either embraced it or abhorred it. I am in the latter category ("Grand Prix of Baltimore canceled through 2015, and likely beyond," Sept. 13). But...
  • Plenty of things to regret about sponsoring the Grand Prix

     Plenty of things to regret about sponsoring the Grand Prix
    Unlike Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, we do have regrets regarding the wisdom of sponsoring the Baltimore Grand Prix and similar events ("Rawlings-Blake: No regrets on the Grand Prix," Sept. 16). First, let's be clear. The Baltimore portrayed in "The...
  • Baltimore loses out on racing

    With the cancellation of the Baltimore Grand Prix next year, The Sun got exactly what it wanted. The demise of that race. Champagne all around! Baltimore is a "blue collar" town and it proved it. Very sad. Randall Miller, Ocean View, Del.

  • Where IndyCar failed, might NASCAR succeed?

     Where IndyCar failed, might NASCAR succeed?
    The letter from the co-founders of Viva House was spot on ("Plenty of things to regret about the Grand Prix," Sept. 19). What it failed to do was explain how the cancellation of the Baltimore Grand Prix would make things better. Outside of making them...
  • Mayor won't admit truth about Grand Prix

     Mayor won't admit truth about Grand Prix
    In her recent commentary in The Sun, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake tries obfuscation to explain her sophomoric push for the Grand Prix, instead of admitting the truth — that it has been a financial flop, was a huge waste of taxpayer funds and...
  • Grand Prix disliked? Who says?

     Grand Prix disliked? Who says?
    Detractors of the Baltimore Grand Prix (or most things) typically speak in broad terms using "no one liked" or "everyone was glad to see it go." These are typically false misnomers which apply only to their disgruntled clique of friends. I have friends...
  • Baltimore's leaders veer off-course, again

     Baltimore's leaders veer off-course, again
    I guess we should be used to the ongoing incompetence and mismanagement that is Baltimore City, but it certainly is a depressing spectacle to watch our city "leaders" stumble from one screw-up to the next. I was thrilled when we finally got a first-...
  • Glenelg High's Robotics Club meets and greets at Grand Prix [Glenwood/Glenelg/Dayton]

    The Glenelg High School Robotics Club spent a day at the Baltimore Grand Prix showing off the robot the members built. According to Patrick Mullinix, a junior at Glenelg, lots of people visited their demonstration and were very interested in learning...

    'The Amazing Race' recap, 'We're not in Oklahoma no More'
    Welcome back, everyone! I hope you got your Phil fix over the summer by watching him recreate the 1928 Tour de France on a vintage bicycle. The man does not stop. His calves do not stop. Anyway, back to the race. It opens in an Old West movie ranch...
  • Retired racehorses find their second career

    Retired racehorses find their second career
    A retired racehorse has to learn new tricks. Some thoroughbreds are used for breeding when their track days are done. Others find careers in hunting, polo or even police work. But in the worst situations, former racehorses are left with negligent owners...
