We had the former candy store house across the street from the Market Street condo nominated last year by Alicia Dorsey Frank. We talked about doing that one this summer, before we figured we'd better save our money for mothballing.

Debbie you are correct.

I suppose we are feeling more optimistic now. That was while we were knee-deep in Walnut Court.

Let's put that addy on the list!

I would like to see something happen with dancy terrace. Not sure what we could do, but maybe securing the buildings better is addition to an overall cleanup.

Good idea but I don't think many will come out because the house is vacant.

Mrs. ???? Two houses down from Hailing. Little old lady sits on her porch behind her burglar bars all day.

Her son lives with her. He must be 80 and has a broken foot.

She is over 100 according to marc and I believe she was born in that house.

Sam said he'd paint the house for free if someone bought the paint. (She asked him how much he would charge to paint her house, he couldn't give her a bid). Sam could help, but he really can't afford to paint the house for free for her.

Good family support. I don't know if she is needy, financially.

She must be Springfield's oldest resident.
