    RIP- Former Md. governor William Donald Schaefer

    Former Md. governor, Baltimore mayor dies
    (AP) – 18 minutes ago

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — William Donald Schaefer, the colorfully outspoken and combative Maryland governor and four-term Baltimore mayor who oversaw the transformation of downtown from a gritty center of urban decay into a tourist attraction, died Monday. He was 89.

    The three things I remember the most about Schaefer was
    1. Baltimore ethnic festivals - great food in the summer
    2. the dollar house program - help rehab alot of downtown housing
    3. Baltimore Inner Harbor - some say it put Baltimore on the map
