* Although he's in the midst of a busy campaign, Gov. William Donald Schaefer found time recently to stop by Dalesio's of Little Italy to cut the ribbon to the third-floor dining room named in his honor. Paul Oliver, former GM for the Waterfront Hotel and a former Martin Marietta employee, bought Dalesio's, a Northern Italian Restaurant at 829 Eastern Ave., a year ago.
Members of Oliver's family and several of the guv's friends were on hand at the ribbon cutting party. Partygoers included Pat Oliver, Marty Oliver, Pat Merritt, Carol McGowan, John Paterakis, State Senators John Pica and George Della and Delegate John Arnick.
* Baltimore's star relief pitcher, Gregg Olson, went on a mission from Mars (Mars candy, that is) last Thursday. Accompanying Olson on this Halloween visit to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center were Rudy Miller, publisher of Maryland Family magazine, WCBM talk show host and host of "Rudy's Kid's" on WMAR (Channel 2); Mike McCarthy, WMIX radio; Diane Lewis, marketing manager for Towson Town Center, and an array of M&M;'s chocolate candies characters. Much to the children's frightful delight, the aliens were well-armed with M&M;'s and Mars Bars.
