To the editors:

In your December 11 story, "Signs of the times: a name for every neighborhood" [Neighborhood News], you make a very false assumption when in reference to Burnham Park, you say, "But, alas, the name never caught on, at least in part because of resistance from people like Dennis McClendon . . ." It should have read, "The name never caught on with Dennis McClendon." Unfortunately, Dennis refuses to accept the fact that things change and neighborhoods grow. Many, many people do identify the neighborhood as Burnham Park. The broken-down abandoned area of 10 years ago was the South Loop, now our growing, developing residential neighborhood is Burnham Park, a community integrated in every way. We even tolerate people as set in their ways as Dennis McClendon.
