"These are always popular, no matter where you are," said Joe Deacons, picking up a pair of plastic eyeglasses in the shape of "2012" from his array of New Year's novelties. He was selling his wares - glowing light sticks, necklaces and plastic horns - from a cart on the corner of South and East Pratt streets, readying the people streaming toward the fenced-in viewing areas.

M. Faysal Thameen, a retired structural engineer who headed the city's role in the 1980s construction of the Fort McHenry Tunnel, died of cancer April 9 at his home in Millbury, Mass.
