Eagerly awaiting word from the MacLeods. Jaime entered the hospital this morning and their first child is expected sometime today . . . Story on the front page of the Pat-News this morning caught my eye. Persons living in the 600 block of Dauphin Street are trying to preserve their street in the face of neglect, absentee landlords and roving graffiti artists . . . Please correct this old man if he is wrong, but as I recall all the houses on that block were totally restored in the 1960s by Dauphin Deposit Bank as a demonstration of urban renewal. Properties were then offered at very attractive rates and for a few years at least this was a stellar example of city/financial institution cooperation on the renewal front . . .
