SQUINTING INTO the sun with arms raised overhead, Jack Hirrlinger and Ed Kettler carefully measured and fit a hand-split white oak clapboard into place by trial and error. The first of the boards was a little too thick, but the second fit perfectly once they trimmed a few inches off the length. They put it into place while housewright Russell Steele selected and shaped the next piece in the clapboard puzzle. Hirrlinger, a Davidsonville resident, and Kettler, who lives in Annapolis, are volunteers helping to reconstruct the Lord Mayor's Tenement at Historic London Town and Gardens in Edgewater.

LONDON - After a millennium or so of alternatively warring with and wooing kings, queens and the occasional Bible-banging religious jack, London is having a go at this democracy gig.
