I noticed a moving truck outside the old St. Alphonsus parochial school in the west side of downtown Baltimore on Saratoga Street. Someone was moving into an apartment in this Victorian building, once home to a school that made a a valiant attempt to remain open, The school closed a while back, and the building is now a residence. The same day, a little more than a block away, I spotted a banner headed by the numerals "401" and the slogan, "Baltimore's fastest growing neighborhood isn't where you think it is. " The 401 refers to a 2010 census tract defined as Paca Street on the west, Pratt Street on the south, Franklin Street on the north, and President Street and Interstate 83 on the east.

The problem: Street lights and directional signs remain dark in West Baltimore. The back story: Harry E. Bennett Jr. regularly travels from his home in Sandtown-Winchester to Westview Park to go bowling. For months, he's been troubled by the dark street signs in his neighborhood. At two intersections, lights have been dim on two green overhead signs — like the kind you see on highways — that direct drivers around the "Highway to Nowhere. " The signs are located on North Fulton Street, guiding drivers onto westbound Franklin Street, and on westbound Mulberry Street, to North Monroe Street.

The back story: Charlie Dell has had plenty of time to observe what's been slowing down traffic along Franklin Street just east of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
