Just a half hour after the noon opening of the C.A.R.E. free clinic at the Statehouse Convention Center, 200 patients have signed in and more are lined up outside the door. Entering patients are being greeted with loud cheers and applause from a sea of red-shirted volunteers; these folks, sign-in people, escorts, technicians, nurses, doctors, are making things go smoothly. At the sign in tables: Lt. Gov. Bill Halter and his wife, Shanti. Video and photographs momentarily.

The new street would serve as relief from traffic to and from the interstate, to be concentrated at Fourth Street.
