Turtleneck Lovers. Local seniors are off to class in a fashion classic - the turtleneck. Michelle Bertoni (left), the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard K. Bertoni of 1315 Newport, teams her dyed-to-match sweater with a sewn-down pleated skirt - they've regained popularity - in shades of brown, gold and yellow. Knee socks complete her school-girl look for classes at St. Thomas High School. A culotte jumper makes clothes sense for a busy gal like Barb Patton, who is vice president of Ann Arbor High's Student Council this year. Tweeds are taking fashion honors this fall, and Barb's choice has flecks of brown, orange, gold and white. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dubois L. Patton of 1621 Peach complements her jumper with a brown turtleneck. A turtleneck and levis combo is Kevin Olson's choice for senior school days at Ann Arbor High. The sweater is in shades of oatmeal and gold; the levis are in a gold plaid. Kevin is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harlowe L. Olson of 2220 Yorktown.

SAVING THE BRICKS - Brick mason Roger Smith uses patience and skill to fit old street brick back into the surface of North Fourth Avenue near the Farmer's Market. Smith, of Margolis Nursery in Ypsilanti, is working on the Downtown Development Authority's pedestrian improvement project. The work will widen the sidewalk area on Fourth Avenue, add drop off spaces in front of the Farmer's Market, install benches and special light fixtures and make Detroit Street one-way north in the block opposite the Farmer's Market which will result in added parking spaces. The project, which began last week, is scheduled to be done in about 45 days, before the wintry weather takes over. The bricks which Smith is refitting were removed from the street so that new curbs could be built.
