The first day of school is a little more than a week away for 11-year-old Molik Hylton, and he readily admits he has no desire to reopen the books. He will, however, be prepared to do so with a new notebook, a fresh haircut and one final day of fun, courtesy of a block party Saturday in his Northwest Baltimore neighborhood. "I don't want to go," said Molik, who will be a fifth-grader at Arlington Elementary/Middle School. "But this helps a little bit." The eight-hour party in the 4000 block of W.
