Plenty has changed for Baltimore Police Officer Dan Waskiewicz since last summer when he received a typical call about a “vicious dog” terrorizing a Baltimore neighborhood.

Cool Girl Baltimore: Rocker/Chef Shirle Hale-Koslowski

It’s true this town is nicknamed Smaltimore for good reason. I can’t run to the Giant without running into at least one person I know, but it might also be nicknamed Smartimore — because there’s always a rich influx of smart, talented folks to meet and make ties with. Case in point: New kid back in town Shirlé Hale-Koslowski, rocker/chef extraordinaire. Shirlé had relocated to Durham, NC, with her Free Electric State band-mate and husband David Koslowski (both formerly of Gerty), where the two continued to make music and Shirlé served as a health-conscious personal chef. Fourteen years later, they’re card-carrying Baltimoreans again, bearing creative gifts.
