Tommy Whittington, who lives in Westlake Village, Calif., returned to his old East Baltimore neighborhood and haunts last week. The former screen painter and retired hotel executive was in town to make an appearance Wednesday evening at a screening of The Screen Painters, a 1988 documentary about the Baltimore folk art, at the Patterson Theatre. "Geez, I remember when the Patterson was a dumping ground, but, boy, is it nice now," said Whittington, in a telephone interview from his niece's Canton home the other day. "There were hundreds of people there including members of some of the old screen-painting families," said Whittington, who is 77. While the screen paintings of the Oktavec clan, Johnny Eck, and brothers Ben and Ted Richardson are the stuff of local legend, Whittington's name and work might not be as well known.

This is the time of year when screens come out of hibernation. They emerge from winter storage in the basement or simply change places with a glass panel that kept out the cold. A window screen with a hole in it is like a shirt with a missing button. It is wounded but not dead. It can be revived, placed in a window to welcome breezes and keep bugs at bay. There are disadvantages to screens. Noise travels easily through them; anything from the clamor from the neighbor that loves to play with power tools to your family's vocal squabbles sails through a screen into the public listening domain.

A 46-year-old man trying to break into a second-story window of his ex-girlfriend's house fell to his death early yesterday, police said. After tearing off a window screen, the man got into a struggle with the woman's estranged husband and fell to the ground outside the West Baltimore home. "We're investigating it as a homicide, but no charges have been filed against the husband," said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman. Police did not release names yesterday of anyone involved in the incident.

So you feel proud of yourself for getting that closet emptied out last week? Here's what Diana Taylor of Harford County is doing in the way of spring cleaning: The mother of four, who also works part time as a bookkeeper and volunteers at her children's schools, cleans her house from top to bottom. Literally. She starts by washing the ceilings of her five- bedroom home with bleach and water and works her way down. She vacuums or dusts every part of the house thoroughly and flips the mattresses.
