Jodie Lau, a colleague at the Arizona Republic with whom I worked a few years back in a Maynard Institute program, writes to say that she has established an award named after me. Now with Gannett's Phoenix design studio, she has established a weekly headline writing award that will culminate in a monthly award. The award is the JohnnyMac, and the trophy is a stuffed leopard wearing a polka-dot bow tie. I might not be the most wholesome influence on headline writers, having once published at The Cincinnati Enquirer the headline "Every little breeze seems to whisper feces," about a residential neighborhood in Detroit troubled by odors from a sewage treatment plant.

Last week was Baltimore Architecture Week, and many architects here spent it celebrating the healthy state of their craft in this region, with commercial and residential developments under way in every direction. The continued rebirth of neighborhoods bordering on the city's Inner Harbor has provided a creative nexus for many, and if there is a theme to current architectural work here it is the creative melding of new and old. The recent and pending work of three busy local architects are representative of this trend.

When Marilyn Weisman decided to stay in her four-bedroom Mount Washington home instead of selling it, she needed a fresh start. In preparation for a move that didn't work out, Weisman had given away everything except the kitchen sink. Furniture, accessories and even her dinner plates were gone. She had planned to buy all new furniture, but faced with an empty house, Weisman worked with Steve Appel, co-owner of Whitehead & Appel Design Studio, to help her with the transition. After applying new paint, rearranging rooms and buying new furniture, she saw the house she shared with her husband, Bernie, in a totally different light.
