Frank Lewis, a community and safety activist whose methods have long been controversial, was elected president of the strife-torn Curtis Bay Community Association last night.In a city with its share of battling neighbors and angry activists, Lewis -- and the neighborhood association -- have stood out as even more ferocious.Known as the bullhorn-toting head of the community patrol, Lewis detains suspects and chases lawbreakers on his bike or in a white 1982 Ford van with a siren and orange light swirling on top. His tactics have drawn rebukes from the police, but residents say they admire his tactics.

Patty Lewis was fast asleep in her second-floor bedroom, so she never knew that the smoke alarm went off. But her husband, Frank Lewis, heard the detector beep about 4 a.m. and smelled the house burning. He roused his wife and pushed her toward the window of their North Payson Street home. "The smoke was everywhere," Patty Lewis recalled of the Feb. 1 fire. "It was the scariest thing that happened. I remember saying, `I don't want to die like this. I don't want to go like this.'" The couple escaped down a Fire Department ladder.

The young toughs are back at the corner of Locust and Pennington selling drugs to the children of Curtis Bay, and Frank Lewis won't let it go. He grabs his orange-and-white bullhorn, walks to within five feet of the dealers, and yells into the horn as loud as he can: "Get off the corner!""Who are you?" one teen-ager asks."Citizens on Patrol!" he yells, turning on the bullhorn's siren as the youths walk briskly away. "And I want you out of Curtis Bay!"Dozens of city neighborhoods have community patrol groups, but Frank Lewis' may well be the most aggressive and confrontational.

As tragic a year as this has been for Frank and Terri Lewis, they still believe their family is especially blessed this Thanksgiving. That they feel this way says as much about the Lewises as about the enduring power of families -- even in their darkest moments.Last year, Frank and Terri had a typical Thanksgiving. Dallas Cowboys football on television. Turkey and mashed potatoes and spinach casserole on the table. And of course, family: Frank's sister, her boyfriend and their two small boys, Ryan and Brandon.
