By Susan Buck staff writer Canton voters head for the polls Tuesday to make decisions that will affect their township and their country for the next decade. Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Doris Kelley, the township clerk's secretary, expects a similar voter turnout to that of the presidential election in 1984. About half of the township's registered voters turned out for that election, she said. In addition to selecting either Michael Dukakis or George Bush for president, Canton voters will choose between longtime Rep. William Ford, D-Taylor and challenger Burl Adkins, R-Southgate. for U.S. Congress. Ford represents the 15th congressional district, which includes Canton Township, Westland and Garden City. Also, incumbent State Rep. Gerald Law, R-Plymouth, goes against challenger Democrat Jeanne Stempien

Canton voters will decide Tuesday whether to approve a 20-year, 1.2mill tax increase to pay for an $8 million community center. For the owner of a house with a market value of $80,000, the average price of homes in Canton, taxes would go up by $48 per year if the increase is approved. "I'm not a prognosticator. but I have been hearing too many good, positive things from people." said Mike Gouin, superintendent of parks and recreation- "It's been a long time coming." The ballot question has been in discussion for more than a year As early as 1979, township officials began considering the prospect of such a center, Gouin said. Some 73 percent of Canton residents surveyed last year by the parks and recreation department said they wanted a multi-purpose

IF APPROVED, the community center will be built behind "anton Township Hall at Canton Cente.- and Proctor. It would include a pool, a gymnasium, banquet and meeting facilities, an indoor running track and workout areas. There are no plans for an ice arena. Total annual operating costs for the community center are pegged at $335,000. This figure was obtained after review of the actual 1987 operation costs for the Westland Bailey Center and the Inkster Recreation Complex. Both facilities are similar to the proposed Canton community center. A conservative estimate of annual revenues is between 1100.500 and $167,500. "I'll look forward to Wednesday, no matter what," Gouin said.

'He steered out of the wimp image; he's beating Dukakis hands down.' — Tom Sprader Livonia resident was thrilled with Bush's appearance in Livonia. Schoolcraft spokeswoman Saundra Florek reported "some nasty telephone calls" about the large Bush-Quayle balloon displayed on the college grounds to advertise Bush's campaign appearance. Lenore Higgins, a secretary in the Hawthorne Center one block away, said "It looks like Schoolcraft College has a poliucal sign on city and state property." Florek responded: "The college would be just as hospitable if Dukakis were coming." Because some organizers only found out the day before that Bush was coming to Schoolcraft, a flurry of activity preceded the event. Starting Wednesday, when the visit became official, former Republican state Rep Jack Kirksey, now community education director with the Livonia Public Schools, was recruited to suggest area sites where the rally could be scheduled. "They were looking at the Bentley High School gymnasium, the Churchill High School Auditorium, Livonia Roma Hall, Schoolcraft College and Bishop Borgess High School," Kirksey said. Bush's staff settled on Schoolcraft because of its access to the expressway system," Kirksey said, "the Please turn to Page 3

Hospital, high school support 'Safe Rides' Alcohol-related auto accidents are the number-one cause of death among young people 15-19, according to the National Council on Alcoholism. In fact, approximately 14 teenagers die every day in alcobol. related auto accidents. • That's a problem that the WayneWestland school district and Annapolis Hospital in Wayne are trying to handle. The district serves southeast Canton. [ The hospital's substance abuse deit and Wayne Memorial High Jhave recognized the problem of teen drunk driving in the Wayne-

Westland area and have pulled together to do something about it, said officials of the two organizations. They are supporting Safe Rides, a program Initiated by the Boy Scouts of America that provides a safe, free, no-questions-asked ride home to any high school student who has been drinking or who might be in a position to be riding with a drunk driver, said Bradley Casemore, substance abuse director at Annapolis. The program is ran by teen volunteers from the high school and adult supervisors. Safe Rides is offered every Friday and Saturday night be-

tween 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. for teens in the Wayne Memorial School District, which encompasses five communities. The Safe Rides' number is 7216800. A team consists of three teens and one adult volunteer to work each shift at the Safe Rides base, in the Peoples Community Hospital Authority complex on Venoy and Annapolis. However, teens handle all the calls and pick up riders themselves. "With all the problems teens face with alcohol and drugs, the Students Against Drank Driving chapter at the high school wanted to do some-

thing about it," said Darlene Scott, Wayne Memorial assistant principal and Safe Rides coordinator. "Kids today find it real hard to say no, despite the television campaign. We're attempting to provide a way to save lives." "What's great about the program is that it's ran by teens for teens," said Casemore. "Teens feel a little more comfortable asking their peers jfor help than asking adults, whom they may have a hard time trusting And. in volunteering for the Safe Rides program, the teens are also sending an import-

ant message to their classmates." Encouraging use of the program is one part of the substance abuse services Annapolis Hospital offers to young adults, Casemore said. STATISTICS indicate that about 50 percent of Safe Rides calls involve alcohol in some way, Casemore said. This could mean that the student calling is either a potential drunk driver or might have been a passenger with a drank driver. Most other calls come from baby sitters who feel uncomfortable accepting a ride home from a partially intoxicated parent, or from a student

Canton doubles budget for legal fees By Diane Oato staff writer Planning and zoning problems have forced the township to approve another $140,000 for legal fees, meaning it could spend more than twice what it spent last year. The additional^ money was approved by trustees recently to cover expected overruns, said John Spencer, Canton finance director. The add-on boosts the original allocated amount of 1297,500 to $437,500 for attorney costs. LAST

1213,336 for legal fees* " The planning and zoning issues are running higher (this year) than anticipated . . . and they were going over the budget." said Spencer, explaining the motivation for the $140,000 amendment. "We don't expect to spend ($437,500) much," said Spencer. He predicts the township will spend closer to $300,000 for legal fees by December. Attorney costs are budgeted in various township funds, like water, police and fire. Legal fees from the water fund will be about $20,000 less this year than last, because the town-





ship is no longer involved in a Supersewer lawsuit. Spencer said. Supersewer is a multico mm unity plan to provide expanded sewer capacity, Spencer said. Canton pulled out of that program and booked up with Ypsilanti Community Utilities and Northville. THIS YEAR, review and legal questions on a Canton solid waste landfill proposed by Wayne Disposal ate a large chunk of the township's attorney fees. David Berry, the principal attorney representing Canton on the land-

fill issue, said a lot of research and discussion has been required. Approval for the dump is pending at the county level.

Prior to hearing comments from the audience, the board will "consider the activities we're presently doing — such things as board members speaking with PTOs, newsletter materials and that kind of thing," added Egli. "We will be looking at the materials we currently have and making the board aware of t h a t We'll consider the kinds of messages people are getting. "I think this will be an opportunity t o take a total look at the communications process within the dist r i c t " said Egli. "One of the board goals is to improve communication, so that's why it's very timely right now.

By Carolyn DoMarco staff writer At least one area attorney hopes the bumper stickers Judge Edward Avadenka is handing out as punishment to repeat drunk drivers won't stick. Others with an interest in the unusual punishment think it may be a good idea And the ACLU will consider the issue. Avadenka, who is new to the 48th District bench, began recently to sentence convicted repeat drunk driving offenders to post a sticker on their bumpers that reads "Convicted: Drinking & Driving. RESTRICTED LICENSE." The punishment is handed out in addition to fines,-probation and jail time. As of Monday two convicted drunk drivers had been sentenced to put the sticker on their cars. "The response has been largely affirmative." Avadenka said. "•There've been a couple of detractors who think it's not enforceable." One of those detractors is Birmingham attorney Robert Larin who specializes in defending clients accused of drunk driving. Larin vis-

A 48th District Court judge began recently to sentence convicted repeat drunk driving offenders to post a sticker on their bumpers that reads 'Convicted: Drinking A Driving. RESTRICTED LICENSE.' ited Avadenka last Friday to check out the sticker and told the judge it was ill-advised from his point of view

"THIS CAN REALLY cause some problems," Larin said, saying the law was making a public mockery of people and would cause defendants who would normally plead guilty to demand a trial. "This is to disgrace people. In small towns they put the names of drunk drivers in the newspaper. This is the same thing." He also objected to the inconsistency of the sentence. Only drivers who do not share a car with other

members of the family would be sentenced to display the sticker, avoiding embarrassment to spouses and teen drivers. Larin said if one of his clients was ordered to display the sticker, "There would be hell to pay. I'd hand out (anti-sticker) stickers in protest of the scarlet letter . . . He's (Avadenka) a decent fellow, well-intentioned. Like any new judge or teacher he wants to do something significant. Judges with a great deal of experience haven't resorted to this." Avadenka said he first heard of the unusual sentence in a magazine and that the idea originated in Florida. He admits the bumper sticker idea hasn't caught on with his fellow district judges Edward Sosnick and Gus Cifelli.

patient services for Henry Ford Hospital's chemical dependency centers, said any consequence for excessive drinking the legal system imposes can be used therapeutically. She said the sticker could be a negative factor that brings an alcoholic into treatment, creating a positive result. "The worst thing the legal system can do," Marquis said, "is to look the other way at repeat drunk driving offenders. Obviously Judge Avadenka is not going to look the other way. That in itself sends a message."

Pat Stanton, past president and a member of Birmingham Bloomfield Families in Action said. "It could be humbling . . I hope For many drunk drivers it's difficult to be humble.

The official causes of the fires were undetermined. Personnel from Consumers Power, the Plymouth Fire Department and Michigan State Police were still investigating Monday morning.

"I busted through a window and climbed through," said Foley, who received treatment at the scene for a deep gash to his arm. "I chased a dog and got him out from under the

Sometimes its three strikes and you're out. but for Orma Lee Robins. Building an airplane from a third-hand kit turned out to be a grand slam bomerun. "Actually, I was looking for a car kit to build so I wouldn't be bored," said the Southfield aircraft mechanic "I couldn't find a magazine for that, but I did find one for airplanes. I thought I'd try i t " Robins bought the kit from someone who failed with it and sold it to another guy, making it a third-hand kit Robins bought the kit in 1982 when he and his wife, Greta, were living in Maine and he was taking flying lessons. He had been thinking about what to fly. By 1983, they were back in Michigan and living in Southfield. Robins took three years to construct his plane, mostly in the garage, but sometimes it spilled over into other areas in and out of the bouse. "Once I astonished the neighbors when I rolled it outside to assemble the 22-foot wings," he said. "When I was done, I hoisted it up on the nose and sawed the wing* off to get it back inside." Not quite astonished but certainly shocked. Greta Robins was surprised at her husband's new project.

"He was on Air Force assignment as a recruiter then and just looking to build a car. I was taken aback. "And then there was some fiber glass work done in winter, which deposited dust everywhere." THE WHOLE family became Involved — her 23-year-old daughter. Micbele, their 4year-old daughter, Camille, and Robins' son by a former marriage. "Lee spent three years building the plane so he wouldn't be bored," she said. Born and raised in Trinidad, Robins met her husband in England where she had worked for 20 years. She is a registered nurse now employed by Care Mark Health Care in Southfield. Flying lessons and airplane building left little time for boredom for Robins, determined to get the maximum out of putting intricate parts together to make a flyable. airplane. "Now certified by the FAA, and after putting in all these years, I still have the plane and I fly i t " he said. Tbe plane is about the size of a small Cessna, small but adequate, he added.

Grading the movies A+

"Everybody's AH Americaa" (A-) (R) 127 minutes. In the best sense, a fine, sentimental, nostalgic look a t a quarter century (1954-61) of America. Centering on a Louisiana football hero, the "Gray Ghost" (Dennis Q u i d ) , his s w e e t h e a r t the "Magnolia Queen" (Jessica Lange) and his scholarly nephew (Timothy Huttoo). The intricacies of their relationships and the social change in that period a r e nicely blended. Excellent acting carries this long film past soap opera and should cause a lot of sighs for tbe good old days.

"Memories of Me" (A-) (PG-13). Alan King in bravura performance as nightclub comic and "King" of the movie extras His son. the doctor (Billy Crystal), comes to Los Angeles after a heart attack and tries to mend their broken relationship. King is perfect, but Crystal is just a shade miscast On the whole, however. excellent film.

"They Live" C)(R). Alien ghouls manipulate subconscious with high tech. And a very happy Halloween to you. "U2: Battle aad H a m " ( Q (PG-13) 101 minutes This is not a Him about the inside, personal views of U2 and their lives offstage. It is a movie about music, a combination of some brief, but poor documentary work and footage derived from two shows. For a band with such a social conscience, I expected more than two hours of MTV.

"Elvira, Mistress at the Dark" (D-) (PG-13) 96 minutes. This hodge-podge tries everything and fails because you need a lot more talent than this crowd has to pull off a satiric-comedy-boirorcult-sex film. Timing is off, pacing erratic and everything is flat except Elvira. " F e d s " (•). Rebecca Demornay and Mary Gross as two young FBI recruits. "A Fish Called Wanda" (A) (R) 110 minutes. A very funny film wit1- the whackiest gang in town. Principals include J a m i e Lee Curtis as Wanda the Wonderful, jewel thief extraordinaire. Kevin Kline's inspired performance as a beserk American gunsel in London is matched by John Cleese's proper barrister. The whole thing is beyond words. The only solution is to see the movie. "Gorillas in the Mist" (C-) (PG-13) 120 minutes Welcome to the wonderful world of gorillas. Sigourney Weaver plays it like the Magic Kingdom, and the film's erratic pacing largely misses the point of Dian Fossey's life and her obsessive reverence for gorillas living freely in their natural h a b i t a t "Halloween 4"(*)(R).

"Madame Soosatzka" (A) (PG-13) 122 minutes Lush, sensuous photography, inspired music and brilliant acting plus John Schlesinger's fine direction equal an excellent film. This touching portrait of Madame Sousatzka (Shirley MacLaine) and her obsessive piano-teaching techniques also tells the story of a young genius. Manek Sen (Navin Cbowdhry). His desire to please his mother (Shabana Azmi) and his teacher, Madame Sousatzka, tears at him as does his desire for success and his awakening

Elvin Bishop and Bobby Thompson have one' thing in common. They're both only known for one hit. Of course, Thompson's hit won the pennant for the New York Giants in 1951 and landed him in baseball immortality. Blues guitarist Bishop would soon forget his "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" shot up to No 2 on the pop charts in 1976, earning Bishop a gold record and a slew of naUonal television appearances Problem is that's what most non-blues folk recall when hearing the name Elvin Bishop, even though it was Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship fame who actually sang the tune. "No sense in fighting it, really," said Bishop, who will appear tonight at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor "That's just the way the pop music structure is." Music aficionadoes r e m e m b e r Bishop jamming with the late Mike Bloomfield in The Paul Butterfield Band, which was at the forefront of the blues rock'n'roll revival of the mid-1960s Bishop then set out on his own, gaining a reputation as one of the premiere guitarists of that era. He was considered in the same class as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton as a young up-and-coming guitarist. In fact. Bishop used to jam with Clapton and Hendrix along with B B King in legendary sessions at the Fillmore in San Francisco

" When I got to Chicago, it was amazing." said Bishop, his m e m o r y suddenly in working order. "There were about 50 to 60 blues clubs It was like falling through that hole into Wonderland " WITH PAUL Butterfield. they were able to mesh the authentic Chicago blues sound pioneered by the

Things must be getting serious. Even Gracie who guards the door at Paycheck's Lounge is starting to recognize us. Yes. it's been a year since we started covering local music on a weekly basis. We've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. One thing is for certain, Detroit is ready to break out. Minneapolis. Boston, Athens. Ga., have proved to be unlikely hotbeds for new talent. Detroit cannot be f a r behind. All it takes is for one band to get signed and make it big and the Aand-R folks will swarm like bees around an uncapped bottle of syrup. But within the perceived contenders, there are some pretenders in the Detroit music scene There are bands who think they're original, but in essence, are only copying what someone else has perfected, i.e. R E M , U2 and the MC 5. Time and fashion will eventually weed out those groups Here a r e some impression of some unsigned local bands groups who are definitely contenders.

a Frank Allison and the Odd Sox: This Ann Arbor-based outfit is one of the best, if not the best bands in the area. Few groups have the musical talent, the raw energy and the depth in terms of material that this group possesses Truly head and shoulders above the rest. Allison and Co. concentrates solely on the music, not the image. Other bands should take note.

a Junk Monkeys: It's no fluke that this band has been touted to make it out of Detroit. They have all the tools that would appeal to the record labels. Live, they exude energy and throw in an interesting batch of covers. The sound is raw, very raw to the point of almost shaking hands with heavy metal. Here are some diamonds in the rough — as in totally underrated;

• Funhoose: Kimba ranks as the best female vocalist in the local rock scene. She has tbe range and a dynamic stage presence that makes you take notice. Sometimes that might overshadow a band whose music is as original as their Tazmanian devil's approach to live performance.

a Shooting Club: Their songs have a way of taking permanent residence in your ear Live, Shouting Club shows tend to be inconsistent. That stems from the fact they simply don't play enough regularly on the local music circuit But, perhaps, that's to their credit Some would also rate Jim Cortez's less-than-ethereal vocals as a stumbling block Really, though, his voice could be the strongest assest of this group. Also Chris Mason plays a mean set of drums.

• See Dlek Ron: Yes, indeed These guys make it look and sound easy, which is perfect for the sweet, melodic pop See Dick Run has perfected. Further enhancing the band's stock is the strong stage presence of lead singer Jim Edwards Mark Campbell is a first-rate guitarist as well. An image is important with a band like this as long as it doesn't overshadow the music. Hopefully, it won't

"I don't have a good memory." said Bishop about those times. "I try not to live in the past " Those guitar slinging sessions with Hendrix and Clapton are a blip in the memory bank And so is Bishop's distasteful foray into commercial music, which included his record company folding and owing him money

The disc features Bishop at his finest, playing the guitar with all the gusto that made him an oftenuttered name in blues circles. The emphasis is on good-time, uptown boogey dance music — the kind of music that left Bishop wide-eyed when he moved from Tulsa to Chicago before joining the Paul Butterfield Band.

o Cinecyde: Another group that keeps an open calendar as f a r as playing gigs On stage, singer Gary Riechel leads the pack with some pretty straight forward, no nonsense rock'n'roll. Also. Riechel touches upon not-often discussed topics in the songs he writes, such as chemical

warfare and the ugly symbolism of the Confederate flag for example. o Volebeats: Is this an overblown jug band, or a group teetering on something special? Having seen this group perform and listening to their recorded material, the latter rings true. Jeff Oakes and Matthew Smith make for a great musical collaboration. o Snakeout: We caught this band's act at the "Moron's of Rock" show at Saint Andrew's Hall, and by far. they were the best. Even managed to corner the lead singer afterward and bought the band's cassette. They blast forward with a surf punk sound sprinkled with humor. Great stuff. B Hippodrome: They were written off as R . E . M clones. Nonsense. Live, this is a very entertaining group. Chris Richards is one of tbe most talented guitarists and personable musicians around right now. He's a young pup, but be performs like a seasoned veteran. The band also has one best drummers in the area in Doyle Dean. All this group needs is to straighten out its act (like finding a permanent bass player) and forge ahead. Tbe spark is there, guys, take advantage of it.

When a pop recording artist releases an album with a label on tbe front reading. "Capitalism Is Killing Music." he is not expecting to top the U.S. charts

1 ri°n>

It's a powerful voice that obviously gives the producer problems as it is overproduced in many instances, particularly on " D r e a m e r " and "Zimbabwe" There have been two singles released from this LP so far, "Don't Walk Away" and "Stop Your Fussin " The latter was the first single and has just been re-released. I prefer the song "Walk and Talk Like Angela," If I were forced to chooae. It tends to linger in memory a little longer All in aU, U is very obvious that Childs possesses a strong booming voice, and a lot of support from the industry And I hope that future releases will exhibit more of her natural voice than the quality of production wort.

Here comes an all-metal feeder (with the name of Hylarious birdfeeders) that lowers the boom on squirrels — and pigeons and grackles as well — the minute they step up to the feeding platform. The weight of the squirrel closes the food opening and the cagey rascals then have to look elsewhere for a free lunch. Made in White Bear Lake, Minn. 155.

A MAJOR event in Robin's life was attending an air show in Oshkosh, Wise. The show is considered a mecca for plane owners. "It's always a good show and this time they even had the Concorde there," he said. "There also were hundreds of home builts (kit airplanes)." Oshkosh also was a trip for Kenneth Schuman as well. Since February 1987, when he soared in a 36minute flight above the OaklandPontiac Airport, the Westland pilot has hardly come down to earth. Newly certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, he had put in 14 yArs building the BD-5, an experimental one-seater plane. "It was thrilling," said Schuman, 43. His smiling wife, Suzanne, recalls that he looked "like a kid on Christmas morning" when he came down. Schuman, who was taken with the

shape and smooth lines of the plane, paid $2,200 for it in 1973. After hand building every component, he estimates the plane cost more than $16,000 to build, including the engine The BD-5 is 13 feet long, has a 21foot wing span and a propeller driven by a turbo-charged Honda Civic engine, equipped with an aircra/t carburetor. It has a 26-gallon fuel tank and a cruising speed of 180 miles per hour Schuman has been flying for 10 years and is a member of the Backyard Eagles, a chapter of the Experimental Airplane Association. He

and Robins are acquainted through membership in flying clubs "After 97 hours of flying time, I'm still making modifications to the plane," he said. "You always have to improve them, though they are pretty flyable. "MY FAMILY helped me a lot in building my plane A lot of people might start and give up because it takes years, but I'm a private pilot and I've always been interested." Schuman saw one in a magazine, then saw it fly, so he signed up for a kit. While building the BD-5. he often spent three or four hours a night

working on it. investing as much as 14 hours getting a single piece to fit His interest in aviation began with building model airplanes as a child, and later was fanned by a stint in the Air Force. Schuman flew gliders while he was stationed in England, but later switched to motorized planes. Presently. Schuman. an electrician at the GM Delco plant in Livonia, flies from Willow Run Airport, which is close to the family home "It's costly," he said "Any flying is and since the plane is a single seater. I can't take my family up with me."

Cars burn oil and eat gasoline, but one car simply ate the garage Our new condominium in West Bloomfield came with a two-car garage, armed with a magic device to open and close the doors, an open sesame fantasy. On frigid winter nights, just a squeeze of a button inside your car and in one magic moment, you're warm and safe in your own garage. A comfort, coveted and appreciated, and guarded, too, it seems Six months after our move in, my bobby happy hubby moved in on tbe garage with plans to build a 1929 Mercedes from a kit When it was duly delivered and a Volkswagen chassis chosen for the "guts," Jack's own wheels were summarily ousted, bis faithful Audi left out in tbe cold. Maybe he deserved that Rut when parts and frame are laid out next to tbe chassis for work purposes. tbe car eats ap tbe total garage space So far my little blue sports car has sizzled in tbe sun for tbe summer season If auturrtn's here, who knows what comes next A lot more elbow grease and bead scratching loom ahead before tbe cream-colored, b r o w n - t r i m m e d

Mercedes will be ready to gas up and go. Right now December and January's ice storms seem dangerously near When I met Jack 41 years ago, he already had more than 10 years of doing hand-builts behind him, and he was only 17. With three brothers in service during World War II and one a Marine Corps pilot. Jack built just about every balsa wood model airplane he could find and afford and dreamed of flying himself someday JUST FOR fun, be constructed kites as a young teen When our three kids were halfgrown. about 20 years ago. Jack heard tbe hum of ham radio and went through a phase, which for him meant building bis own radio and transmitter Somehow, once he put these intricate mechanisms together. he seemed to lose interest and look for another challenge The Mercedes came into our lives last September when upon returning from an overseas trip we w hi led sway several hours at John F Kennedy Airport in New York There, on display, was tbe very Mercedes Jack later opted to build An automotive designer's delight, it was something to gaze and wooder about

Shirlee Iden Jack speculated only about its buildability, and shortly after returning home, he ordered the kit Its arrival was akin to a feeling that we were once again expectant, except tbe baby was here and needed more than a few finishing touches Jack set out to find a suitable chassis so he could begin After he found Recycled Bugs — The Parts Place, out near the Silverdome. a chassis was delivered And when Jack got Don Waters, whose knowledge of cars and their innards is vast, things started to move. For my hobby happy hubby, it's exciting "It's dealing with things you've always left to a mechanic." he says "Working from tbe bare 1968 pan and frame, you can really learn about every part of a car." SO FAR, Don and Jack have replaced or rebuilt tbe hydraulic brakes and tbe transmission, redone

Jack explains There's still a long ride to the finish line and an infinite amount that I don't understand at all The day they started the engine was a real red letter day. with sparks literally flying But tasks loom ahead Every possible afternoon, the work goes on. making it a treacherous trek through the garage, over parts large and small and the clutter that has de voured every inch of the garage floor Curious friends and neighbors come by from time to time, often with generous offers to help But most of these garage gazers stand back and watch, stay for a rundown of what's going on and disappear Since 1929 is tbe year of Jack s birth, I'm cheering for him to get the car on tbe road by next April for the 60th birthday celebration of himself and his kit car. But what really worries me is what Jack's next project will be

Jigsaw puzzles date to 1760s printmaker (AP) — Scatter tbe pieces of a jigsaw puzxle oo a table and few people can resist tbe challenge. Collector Anne D. Williams was entranced by tbe compelling nature of picture puzzles at an early age and those early hours spent around a table littered with puzzle pieces sparked a love of puzzles that has continued to grow. Today, William* has a collection of more than 1,800 jigsaw puzzles and related examples. According to Williams, tbe first known jigsaw puzzles were made by London printmaker John Spilsbury during the 1760s Hand-colored maps, engraved and printed at Spilsbury's shop, were mounted on thin mahogany boards to be out with a coping-type saw into large, r>on-interlocking pieces along the boundaries of the countries. Envious of Spilsbury's success, other printmakers soon began to copy and profit from his innovation. But it was tbe mid-1780s before anyone made the leap from maps, which seemed so logically divisible, to making puzzles of other subjects.

Aithough a few purely frivolous puzzles entertained children in the late 1700s and early 1800s, most of these early puzzles were made with a child's education foremost in mind.

ly mimicked the earliest F-ngii«h puzzles, producing maps of single American states as well as tbe entire country. But after tbe Civil War, as the businesses of toy and game makers blossomed, American puzzles surged to the forefront of world puzzle art. During the last 30 years of the 19th century, American manufacturers also began to use cardboard as a backing for their puzzles, another innovation that assured tbeir success. Puzzles had always been child's play, but during tbe late 1800s new technical developments, such as the power scroll saw (later know as the jigsaw) and the invention of plywood, made increasingly difficult puzzles feasible. By 1908. tbe puzzle craze was on. A wooden jigsaw puzzle or two became a required element of every society house party.

XS THE subject matter changed, so did the cutting style. Expensive hardwoods were still the preferred material, but unlike Spilsbury's prototypes. these puzzles were laboriously cut with large interlocking border pieces that framed a series of simply cut interior shapes. It was a style that would persist for an entire century. Although a few purely frivolous AS THE public's expertise grew, puzzles entertained children in the manufacturers and individual puzzle late 1700s and early 1800s, most of makers increased tbe difficulty of these early puzzles were made with their puzzles. Manufacturers devela child's education foremost in mind. oped intricate new styles of interMaps were a mainstay, but puzzles locking cuts that included special fitaught math, grammar, natural his- gural pieces. Other makers cut puztory. religion, politics and geogra- zles without interlocking pieces at phy. all.

At first. U.S. puzzle makers timidWith the advent of television and

the age of electronic entertainment, tbe puzzle slipped quietly into tbe background of favored evening pastimes. But in many ways, tbe art of tbe jigsaw puzzle didn't reach its frustrating pinnacle until 1965. with tbe production of Jackson Pollock's abstract painting "Convergence" in puzzle form. This mesmerizing puzzle, manufactured by Springbok, sold more than 100,000 copies in a few months and continues to be known as one of tbe most maddening puzzles ever made. Wooden puzzles also have made a comeback. A few dozen artists are currently crafting stock and customordered wooden puzzles that rival tbe finest old puzzles in difficulty. Prices start at around 975 and rise to several thousand dollars. According to Williams, a puzzle's value is largely determined by its age. rarity and graphic appeal. Tbe quality of tbe craftsmanship, both in the picture and tbe cutting, and tbe number of pieces may have a bearing on tbe puzzle's value, as will its condition, completeness and presence of the original box. Puzzles by known^makers are preferred. PRICES VARY widely, although most available examples fall into tbe $5 to 1100 range. Cardboard puzzles for adults dating from tbe 1930s on usually sell for less than 910, but children's puzzles from this period will be a bit more. Children's puzzles from the 1800s may sell for 950 to 9400, while a complete 18th-century puzzle in its original box may fetch 9200 to 9000. A rare example such as a Spilsbury. of which only a handful are known to exist, may cost 91.500 to 93.000 or more. Missing pieces or boxes, poor condition or lack of visual appeal would lower these estimates. It's always risky buying a puzzle in an unassembled state, Williams said. Missing pieces are the most common puzzle flaw. As with most collectibles, however, it's often worth buying a less than perfect puzzle, if it's an unusual or rare example

Baby boomers discover a reason for 'homework' r*

(AP) — Magazine editor Nick Sullivan has abandoned the bustle and commuting chaos of Manhattan to live with his family in a converted barn in rural Massachusetts — without giving up his job. Sullivan edits and writes on a personal computer, sends and receives memos on a facsimile machine and. every couple of weeks, spends a day or two in New York at editorial meetings. "I like i t I'm living in a spot I ordinarily would get to only oa weekends — semi-rural with nice beaches." Sullivan said recently "But there are almost no jobs there If I had wanted to work there otherwise, I'd have had to change jobs." Sullivan is one of a growing number of Americans — nearly 25 million by one count — who have taken advantage of a boom in information technology and slowly changing attitudes to quit commuting and work full— or part-time at home. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, In a one-time survey in 1985. found 18.1 million people out of the total work force of 97 7 million worked at home at least some of tbe time. By 1987, 23 3 million people worked at home at least part-time, and the number climbed to 24.9 million this year, according to Link Resources, a New York consulting firm that has begun surveying the trend Tbe 1988 figure amounts to 23 percent of tbe non-farm work force of 107 1 million.


— Nick Sullivan ALVTN Toffler. the futurist who for a decade has been predicting tbe rise of the "electronic cottage" as a combined home and workplace, said he's pleasantly surprised to find the times are catching up. The author of "Future Shock," "The Third Wave" and tbe new "Previews and Premises" noted in a recent interview that just a few years ago, he considered estimates that tbe home work force would top 15 milboo by 1990 optimistic, yet they already have been surpassed. The futurist was in town to speak to an audience of the converted — a conference for businesses which sell electronic gear to those who work at home. That itself is a measure of changing times, be said. Home workers tend to be entrepreneurs. consultants and otherwise independent types, because many of those who run big organizations are reluctant to give up control over tbeir employees, Toffler said. But traditional corporate accounting fails to note tremendous savings home work could bring society by cutting tbe time spent commuting and tbe amount government spends

"What we're discovering is that the major institutions in our society — hospitals, prisons, corporate bureaucracies — are very expensive ways to get anything done," said Toffler. " . . .

Seeing the light Cranbrook style By Dave Varga staff writer

'Most (shows) are rock and roll, designed for high school and coHege-age students. It's an age that people don't always come out to a museum, sd this brings them out.'— Doug Goudie

It's fireworks for the MTV generation. Every weekend teenagers and yuppies, bandholding couples and entire families pack into tbe Cranbrook Institute of Science planetarium to gaze up at tbe Indoor dome for a laser light show. The 45-minute show features brilliant, oooh-Inducing lines of color in ever-changing, 3-D shapes that flow and pulse to a rock-and-roll beat Results can be breathtaking or overwhelming, depending on how long your eyes can bold out. Unlike fireworks, the dazzling display only pauses between songs. Video thrills, no waiting. There is waiting to get in, though. Crowds line up on any given weekend for the three Friday and two Saturday night shows. On a recent visit to Cranbrook, the Saturday night shows were both sold out, with lines of visitors waiting among tbe museum's rows of encased quartz and other minerals. It's generally a younger crowd, just tbe folks the laser shows are supposed to bring Into tbe prestigoos Bloomfield Hills science museum. "Most (stows) are rock; and roil, designed for high school and collegeage students. It's an age that

people don't always come out to a museum, so this brings them out," says Doug Goudie, coordinator of the laser show. This night featured the "Genesis" show, with nine tunes from the British rock group varying from the days when Peter Gabriel fronted them to the more successful Phil Collins days. It continues through Dec. 10 and will be followed by "The British Invasion." Saturday and Sunday afternoon shows, meanwhile, feature "The History of Rock and Roll." (Call 645-3200 for details.) FOR MOST visitors, the music didn't matter. Young Bridget Schultz of Bloomfield Hills said she liked the show, but she wasn't a Genesis fan. Adult Frank Saluk of Royal Oak, though, is a Phil Collins fan. "I enjoy this type of music," he saia. But, his son. Cliff, and Cliffs friend, Dan Doctor, don't "Tbey didn't tell us the music until after we got here," Cliff said. Their preference? "Iron Maiden." Doctor said. David Alioa of Canton said be had seen a similar laser show in California, while his date, Shelley Rothenberg of Oak Park, hadn't. "But I enjoyed what I saw," she said. Alioa said be did too. "The only thing is I wish he'd make it louder and keep it wider," be said. Tbe siz loudspeakers in the 83-seat planetarium provided ample volume for most listeners. It doesn't reach the decibel level of a Poison concert, but Goudie said some folks treat it as a concert and sing along. As for the width of the laser lights, Mark Green of Bloomfield Hills also noticed they were kept in the middle of the rounded ceiling. "It wasn't wide enough. It was really narrow," he said. Tbe laser lights — which dance and play among stars, planets and other heavenly bodies projected on tbe ceiling — are kept in the middle of the ceiling for good reason, Goudie said. "If someone was tall enough and jumped high enough and caught a laser in tbe eye, tbey could be in big trouble."

THE PIERCING clarity of the lights can be tiring. At times people closed their eyes. The slower songs and correspondingly slower lights were relieving "My eyes got really tired and started twitching," Green said. "It's almost like looking at a strobe light" Goudie or other light operators keep the lights throbbing to tbe music. "It's a live show really." Goudie said. A Boston firm called Image Engineering Inc. creates shapes and designs that seem to fit the songs and matches them on digital quality video. Shapes on that tape can then be manipulated during each show on a control board, which adds the special effects and different colore. "We listen closely to what the audience seems to like, whether they clap or cheer. That's where tbe showmanship comes in. It's a very important live aspect that makes every show different" Goudie said. In f a c t the show operators that night Ray Koltys and Jon Barth, both kept tbeir eyes trained oo the ceiling during the performance, breaking into smiles several times at their better creations. Those creations can leave the viewer speechless, while at other times it forces some kind of vocal response. Very impressive. ALTHOUGH THE light images can look still, tbe beam actually is continually retracing each an image it projects about 30 times per second. Goudie said. Tbe system is worth about $500,000, Goudie said. B u t since it was built from scratch, Cranbrook turns a profit oo most shows, be said. Charge for the light shows is $1.50 per person over regular museum admission of $3 for adults. | 2 for students and senior citizens. "Our most popular w o e the Wall (by Pink Floyd). We added extra shows consistently for five months," Goodie said. That show may return because it was so popular.

organizing Dorothy .Lehmkuhl Q. Even though I don't have a business, I sometimes feel I need a secretary with so much mail coming in tbe door. What shall I do with all these papers.? A Papers may seem less perplexing if you get back to basics and try my DRAFT system, an acronym for the five things you can do with paper: D Stands for Delegate (not 'Don't know . . . ) The best managers know how to delegate properly, so if you can pass a paper on to someone else for action you will have simplified your life by one step. Place it in a special file for others (your spouse?) to handle. R is for Read. Reading material m e r i t s its own special place — perhaps a bookshelf at the office or near your bed or easy chair at home. Do your casual reading when you feel like it but set aside specific study/career reading times. A means Action. Set up special folders to hold items like bills to pay, letters to answer, etc. F is for File. Each item retained for further reference must have a home of its own. Any collection of five or more papers on the s a m e subject merits its own folder. Fewer papers may be stapled together and added to similar material. T equals Toss Ask: Is there a good purpose for saving it? What will happen if I throw it out? Do I care"' (or does anyone else?) Am I the only one with this information? (or could I retrieve it at the library, for instance?) If answers a r e negative. pitch it. Start by sorting your stacks of appers into the five foregoing categories. You will end up with four, since one will already be in the wastebasket. Stack your reading — leaving three; deliver or file your "delegations" — leaving only two remaining categories. Now do your filing, setting up proper folders as you go. (You may need to purge existing filing space first). Finally, divide your action items into priority order, using folders marker " I m m e d i a t e Action," "Hot" or "Now" for miscellaneous things to do right away, and labeling other folders appropriately for work to be done later. Papers really aren't difficult to control when you categorize them and make decisions as you come to them.

Kitchens key in new home purchases


EW HOME shoppers enter the marketplace with a vast and varied list of criteria ranging from the number of bedrooms to the dimensions of the family room. When it comes to the kitchen, many people are more impressed by appearances than good design. Flaws are not obvious until a f t e r the purchase, when the new owners actually use the room. "It's ironic that kitchens and baths are the rooms that sell homes, yet many novice home buyers are unaware of what constitutes good kitchen design," said Francis Jones, CKD, executive director of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. "People tend to evaluate a kitchen on looks and newness, as they would a living room or a deck. The big difference is that the kitchen is actually a workshop, where meals- are prepared and entertaining is done. A good floor plan is critical to the success of both activities," Jones said. To help new home buyers evaluate the quality of their kitchens, Jones identified seven key areas that de-

serve special scrutiny. • COUNTER SPACE - The basic requirement is at least 24 inches of space on either side of the sink and 12 to 18 inches on each side of the range. Avoid an isolated refrigerator with no adjacent counter space. The need for "landing space" next to the handle side of the refrigerator is especially important because we usually remove more than one item at a time. Fifteen inches is the minimum recommended amount of counter space. • STORAGE — What's inside a cabinet is as i m p o r t a n t as what's outside, storage aids such as slideout pantries, roll-out drawers, cutlery dividers, tilt-out sink fronts and roll-out trash bins enhance efficiency. • P R O P E R LIGHTING - The move toward multipurpose kitchens is accompanied by more sophisticated lighting needs. In addition to general overhead lighting is a need for task lighting over the sink and counters. • ADEQUATE VENTILATION — Especially important in great

room' kitchens, adequate ventilation prevents smoke, grease and odors from circulating through the house. Range hoods maybe sufficient to do the job, or additional fans and blowers m a y be necessary

I a m a member of a homeowners association hot they appear not to be actively pursing collection of any assessments nor do they enforce the restrictions contained within tbe Declaration of Covenants. What can I do? A. Find out who the directors a n d / o r officers of the association are and write them a letter reminding them of their responsibilities. Tell them that you expect them to adhere to their responsibilities in enforcing the homeowners association restrictions and bylaws and otherwise collecting assessments from all m e m b e r s timely. Tell them that you expect that everyone in the community will adhere to the restrictions and rules and regulations that they have a fiduciary duty to ensure that this is being done. Perhaps this action will have a therapeutic effect of the members of the homeowners association. Finally, ask them if they have any directors and officers liability insurance which may send them a message. Robert M. Meisner is a Birmingham attorney specializing in condominiums, real estate, corporate law and litigation.
