Carolyn Shoemaker is in her glory, sitting outside her house on a fall evening. It is a simple thing. But in the 1100 block of Sarah Ann St., simple, quality of life things are treasured. Things like taking it easy after a long day, enjoying the cool of dusk and watching children play. Shoemaker, 46, and her neighbors don't take such things for granted. They used to spend their evenings shut up in their small, two-story homes while drug dealers and addicts ran roughshod over the neighborhood.
