THE IMMORTAL George (Hunky) Sauerhoff, founder and President for Life of the Loyal Sons of Pigtown, hoists himself slightly in his bed at the Caton Manor Nursing Home. A couple of old friends have popped into the room. Naturally, this immediately puts Hunky into the political mode. "DiBlasi," says Hunky, in a high, happy, slightly hoarse voice. "Hunky," says Joe DiBlasi, the former city councilman out of south Baltimore. "DiBlasi," Hunky says again, eyes all twinkly, "you gotta run." "For what?"

Joe DiBlasi's from the original cast production of South Baltimore, which arrived before neighborhood gentrification, before Camden Yards became a baseball park instead of a railroad station, and before people started eating quiche, even if they didn't know how to pronounce it.He goes back to Poultney Street, all the way back to 1952, when he was 5 years old and stuck his head out the bedroom window one night and saw the Cross Street Market burn down....

Last March, when Baltimore City Council President Mary Pat Clarke needed him most, 6th District Councilman Joseph J. DiBlasi was there.With council members shouting each other down over redistricting, and with Mrs. Clarke intent on reclaiming power wrested from her by a coalition of veterans four years ago, Mr. DiBlasi stood and pledged his vote to Mrs. Clarke. On the spot, she rewarded him with the chairmanship of the council's important budget committee.But this week, in an unannounced meeting called by Mrs. Clarke -- held in possible violation of the state's open-meetings law -- she told Mr. DiBlasi his services as chairman will no longer be needed after the new council is sworn in this afternoon.

The Skipjacks finally got a response to their plea for corporate support yesterday, but it didn't come from the corporate community.City councilman Joseph J. DiBlasi said he will introduce a resolution at Monday's City Council meeting that would keep the AHL franchise in Baltimore. If passed, the resolution will pledge $150,000 to the Skipjacks, a figure to be matched by "the business community and/or surrounding jurisdictions who also enjoy the sport and its effect on the community."The figure of $300,000 represents the amount of revenue Skipjacks owner Tom Ebright said he hopes to add with his recent proposal to the corporate community.

The contest for the Democratic nomination for City Council president -- a dead heat since the campaigning began months ago -- remained a close call hours after the polls closed last night.There was no clear front runner with 50 percent of the 372 precincts reporting. But Joseph J. DiBlasi and Lawrence A. Bell III, both serving on the City Council, were leading the race. High voter turnout at the end of the day resulted in some polls remaining open longer and thus delaying the tallying of votes.

Salvatore Spinnato keeps popping up -- if not physically, at least in story or court docket. The longtime con man, nowTC fugitive from justice in a kidnapping/torture case in Baltimore County, immersed himself in a handful of diverse business ventures over the past five years; some cost people money (and resulted in civil judgments against Spinnato), some never got off the ground.But one of the strangest stories I've heard about the admitted con artist did not seem to have a money motive -- at least on its surface.

Since early summer, the four major candidates for City Council president have run a quiet campaign and left the daily drama to the mayoral race -- unwittingly taking themselves out of the limelight and the minds of some voters.Now that there are just a few days before Tuesday's Democratic primary, the candidates -- all in a dead-heat in a mid-August Sun poll -- say they are changing tactics. Gone are the folksy appeals for votes, replaced by pleas on radio and television.Voters "are not paying attention to us," said candidate Carl Stokes.

DiBlasi highlighted his business acumen, saying that he was a vice president of a major bank and head of the council's budget committee.
