Schaefer's city says so long

Neighborhoods celebrate ‘the greatest mayor in America’ BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

It was fitting that William Donald Schaefer, former Mayor of Baltimore, Governor of Maryland, and state Comptroller, took his final journey through the neighborhoods of Baltimore he loved and served so well. About 100 people gathered in Fells Point Monday afternoon to pay tribute to William Donald Schaefer, and they were anything but solemn. The gathering had the air of an old-fashioned political rally, the kind that Schaefer loved. He would have waded into that crowd if he could have. The state and city gave Schaefer a fine sendoff, with a motorcycle honor guard from the city and state police and several counties, heavy trucks from the State Highway Administration and several official cars and limousines. The fireboat Tommy D’Alesandro, floating by the Rec Pier, blasted plumes of water 80 feet in the air. It was a good show. In one of the lead limousines sat a rubber duckie just like the one that Schaefer took into the seal pool of the unfinished National Aquarium all those years ago. It CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

Borders in new quarters School to relocate to former BJN building
by Maria Pecora Special to The Baltimore Guide Itâ€™s not a closing, itâ€™s a transition. With Archbishop Borders School ready to move residence four blocks to the south in time for the beginning of the next academic year, Archdiocesan officials are hastening to assure parents and students the change isnâ€™t a harbinger of another closing in a community that has already seen more than its share. Borders is currently located at 201 S. Conkling Street, where it is affiliated with Our Lady of Pompei Parish. Under the new plans, students, faculty and staff will move to former Bishop John Neumann School, which is affiliatd with Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish at 600 South Conkling Street. BJN was closed by the archdiocese at the end of the 2004 school year. The announcement is one more shakeup in the Catholic school community, which most recently experienced the closing of Our Lady of Fatima School at the end of the 2010 academic year. Church and school officials are saying Children at Archbishop Borders School have helped each year with the preparation of baskets of plenty for the needy of the community. With the school mov- the new arrangement will be beneficial for students. ing, many activities may have to be reconfigured. Photo by Jacqueline Watts
