It’s the kind of authentic food, Pniewski said, that can be found on food trucks in M i a m i a n d Los Angeles. “T h e r e ’s a need here,” Pniewski said recently w h e n asked w h y he opened in Plymouth. “People are looking for healthy, fresh a n d tasty food.” Pniewski most recent­ ly ran the grill at a local bowling alley, w h e r e the m e n u w a s centered around fried bowlingalley food, a n d says he w a s able to take it u p a level. “E v e r y b o d y w a s say­ ing I didn’t belong there, because m y food w a s that good,” he said.

Friendship walk benefits special-needs centers Brad Kadrich Staff Writer

O n c e they decided the people they w e r e going to help included speciineeds kids, they estab­ lished the Friendship Circle, a nonprofit or­ ganization that provides assistance a n d support to 3,000 individuals with special needs a n d their families b y providing recreational, social, e d u ­ cational a n d vocational programming. T h e w o r k started at the Farber Center in W e s t Bloomfield, and focused o n kids under 18 years old. T h e n the cou­ ple w o n d e r e d w h a t h a p ­ pens to the kids once they turn 18? To m a k e sure those kids had a helping h and as they m o v e d into adulthood, the S h e m t o v s opened the

It’s a very powerful w a y to get the c o m m u n i t y together.” Friendship Circle also provides support to indi­ viduals a n d families struggling with isolation, addiction a n d other f a m ­ ily-related crises.

ty. T h r o u g h its p r o g r a m ­ ming, S h e m t o v said, Friendship Circle a ims to prom o t e an inclusive c o m m u n i t y that values all individuals regardless of the challenges they face. “T hat’s w h o Friend­ ship Circle is,” she said. “T h e bottom line of w h o w e are is w e believe every single person is all the s a m e on the inside.” T h e S h e m t o v s are giving special-needs adults the chance to prove that with the n e w Soul Center. T h e center, located at 5586 D r a k e in W e s t Bloomfield, draws people f r o m all over the Oakland a n d W a y n e county areas. T h e Soul Center in­ cludes the Soul Cafe, an eclectic restaurant in w h i c h s o m e 40 percent of the staff has special needs of varying de­ grees. T h e idea, S h e m t o v said, is to allow those staffers the chance to succeed. “It’s a safe environ­ m e n t w h e r e w e allow t h e m to fall occasionally, a n d help t h e m succeed,” S h e m t o v said. “W e ex­ pect t h e m to do a good job.” T h e Soul Center also has centers w h e r e artists can d r a w a n d painters can paint. T h e r e ’s a weav i n g r o o m a n d an art gallery. In short, it’s a place, S h e m t o v said, w h e r e special needs adults can create. Akiva Pollack, a 21year-old, self-described nerd, w a s working on a poster about, predictably, nerds. “I like everything about c o m i n g here, real­ ly,” Pollack said. “It’s really friendly, really open. T h e staff is super friendly, and everyone is really patient. I’ve learned that I can do things I never thought I could do.” Barry R oth of H u n ­ tington W o o d s is a volun­ teer at the Soul Center. H e said working at the

center gives h i m a chance to give back. “T h e center is a m a z ­ ing,” R oth said. “T h e y ’re helping people, a n d I love being a part of that. It m a k e s for a stronger c o m m u n i t y in a very real way.” T h e Sept. 4 W a l k 4 Friendship is the Friend­ ship Circle’s largest fundraiser. S h e m t o v said she hopes the w alk will d r a w s o m e 5,000 walkers a n d raise m o r e than $600,000. Register for the walk at www.friendship circle.org, or call 248788-7878.

Freeing outdoor dogs from ‘the chain’ takes heart, hope, persistence Sharon Dargay Staff Writer

Rusting metal, broken w i n d o w glass, used paper plates a n d other debris anchor the corner of a backyard in southwest Detroit. A f e w feet away, Lesa Whitley a n d W e n d y L e a c h are busy creating shade. T h e w o m e n are m e m b e r s of C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc., an organization that helps outdoor, tethered dogs and their o w n e r s with free pet food, straw, dog­ houses, spay and neuter costs, vaccinations and fencing, with an ultimate goal of freeing dogs from their chains. O n this sweltering Friday after­ noon, the mission is seemingly simple, stretching a tarp f rom fence to fence over a doghouse. T h e w o m e n improvise the structure, working quickly in the relentless sun, while their t e a m leader, D a w n Lamsa, picks up a rake a n d be­ gins to corral the sur­ rounding garbage into a heap. “This will m a k e it a little cleaner for him,” L a m s a tells the d o g ’s owner. H e holds the white a n d tan, blind pit bull b y a chain at the side of the yard, allowing the w o m e n to w o r k u n h a m ­ pered. “Y o u leave lots of water for h i m because it’s super hot out,” L a m s a advises. “D o y o u bring h i m inside? D o you need a crate or anything for him, to bring h i m inside the house?” “O h yeah. W e do it in the winter w h e n it’s real cold,” the m a n replies, adding that his d o g — which k n o w s only life outside o n a chain — has on occasion “m e s s e d u p ” the b a s e m e n t w h e n brought indoors. “W h e n w e get one in w e ’ll give y o u a nice, big crate,” L a m s a promises. “T h e n he can go in that inside.” T h e volunteers heap straw in a n d around the doghouse, then fetch treats a n d a b owl of food, while the o w n e r refresh­ es his d o g ’s water. T h e y snap a f e w photos and take notes to inform other C.H.A.I.N.E.D Inc., teams that return reg­ ularly to check on the animal’s welfare. Before they leave, Whitley squats and stretches her a r m in a friendly gesture. “I d o n ’t think he’s aggressive, but he is blind and he gets scared,” she says, petting h i m as he g n a w s playful­ ly o n her hand, soaking up her attention. “G o o d boy. S u c h a g ood boy. It’s okay. It’s okay.”

Living blind, on a chain 24/7, outdoors, sheltered only b y a tarp a n d a doghouse, with straw for comfort, is not ideal. But C.H.A.I.N.E.D.

Initial visits are based on o w n e r re­ quests or calls from neighbors. Volunteers also notice needy dogs in backyards a n d residents sometimes approach C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc.’s truck.

Gina Freemon, founder and president, figures her organization spends approximately $250 per d o g at each initial assess­ ment. T h e cost includes a doghouse, straw, flea and tick preventative, food, a n d treats. T h e nonprofit organization also assists with spay and neuter, vaccinations, d e w o r m i n g a n d h e a r t w o r m preventa­ tive. C.H.A.I.N.E.D.

downriver communities. F r e e m o n says her group has helped m o r e than 1,600 outdoor dogs over the past five years, w o r k ­ ing with o w n e r s in baby steps. “W e try to take the h o m e s w e currently have a n d m a k e t h e m better,” she says, adding that at least half of t h e m i m ­ prove significantly. “T h e chained d o g is the m o s t miserable dog of all in existence. It’s horrendous. T h e y live in horrible conditions in dilapidated houses with n o interaction. T h e y are m o r e likely to bite be­ cause they are not social­ ized. It’s just the worst f o r m of animal abuse ... the worst f o r m of ne­ glect.” Freemon, a registered nurse from B r o w n s t o w n Township, s a w her first chained dog five years ago while c o m i n g h o m e f r o m w o r k on a s n o w y January evening.

Sewer line blockage caused ramp flooding N o effect on construction

Problem w a s isolated incident and repaired David Veselenak Staff Writer

Flooding over an exit r a m p off Interstate 275 in Livonia w a s caused b y an error near the sewer drain s o m e in recent years, according to the Michigan Depa r t m e n t of TVansportation. Diane Cross, a spokes­ w o m a n for M D O T , said the r a m p on southbound 1-275 to Six Mile in Livo­ nia b e c a m e flooded after the torrential rains fell earlier in the w e e k and the s e w e r didn’t accept the runoff. That caused the exit r a m p to overflow with water and m a k e it impassable. “S o m e h o w , the sewer pipe w a s drilled into by s o m e other conduit,” she said. “Until w e had the flood, w e didn’t k n o w the s e w e r drain w a s blocked.” T h e National Weather Service in White Lake Ibwnship said Livonia reported receiving 1.6 inches of rain over a 12-

Cross said it w a s n ’t a problem k n o w n to M D O T until the rainstorm, and w a s not sure w h e n the blockage had taken place originally or w h a t agency had done it. Cross said the issue m a y have s t e m m e d f rom a utility c o m p a n y doing w o r k in the area, but did not k n o w w hat agency m a y have been responsible. It w a s not a result of the construction currently taking place along 1-275, Cross said. She said it should not be a n issue again after

crews m a d e the repair. “That w a s an isolated incident,” Cross said. S h e said the r a m p w a s closed Tuesday a n d re­ opened during the day W e d n e s d a y after crews repaired the sewer line, allowing for drainage to take place a n d the free­ w a y to dry up. T h e foot path along the freeway s a w s o m e water still run­ ning off into the runoff ditches along the exit ramp Wednesday morn­ ing. T h e r a m p flooding appeared to b e the big­ gest issue in Livonia to

h a p p e n related to the recent weather. Brian Wilson, assistant superin­ tendent of public works for the City of Livonia, said city crews w e r e out taking care of a few d o w n e d trees a n d tree branches in city right-ofways. Those w e r e only to only weather-related issues the city saw, he said. “T h e y m a y have been w e a k e n e d before then,” he said. “A dozen of those incidents...occurred overnight.”

Despite the large a m o u n t of rain in the area, Cross said construc­ tion hasn’t seen m u c h in the w a y of delays on the $75 million project be­ tween Five Mile a n d the I-96/I-696/M-5 inter­ change. Northbound lanes remain closed, as they have been since early July. Cross said the entire project is roughly 72 percent complete, with the deadline for the free­ w a y to reopen taking place s ometime in midSeptember. W i x o m - b a s e d Toebe Construction, the con­ tractor doing the 1-275 work, continues to m o v e forward with the work, Cross said, and hopes to potentially reopen the freeway earlier. That would earn the c o m p a n y a n incentive bonus de­ pending on w hat d a y it w r a p s up. Beginning Sept. 2, the contractor can earn a $150,000/day bonus once the freeway re­ opens. Cross said it’s possible

With a physically ex­ hausted teenager dan­ gling f r o m each end of the kayak, W h i t c o m b paddled t h e m safely to shore within about 20 minutes.

“I guess I w a s in the right place at the right time,” said Whitcomb, w h o began working at B e a u m o n t Hospital, Far­ mington Hills six years ago. All during this time, W h i t c o m b ’s friends stood on the beach with no w a y to help except to call 9-1-1.

Paramedics checked the boys’ vital signs. Aside f r o m being e x ­ hausted, they w e r e fine. Their dad w a s so wiped out b y the ordeal, that after thanking W h i t c o m b profusely, he returned to his campsite for a 20hour nap. Later that day, W h i t ­

A s a token of their deep gratitude, the boys presented W hit­ c o m b with a b u c k knife that their grandfather h a d given to t h e m w h e n they w e r e just 9 years old. W h i t c o m b told the boys that he appreciated their knife very m u c h a n d m a y actually use it for its intended purpose w h e n he goes deer hunt­ ing.

T h e family will never k n o w the n a m e of the m a n w h o rescued their kids f rom certain death a n d Whit­ c o m b will never k n o w the n a m e s of the kids he saved. “It w a s a g ood ending, though,” W h i t c o m b said. “W h a t an a w e s o m e day e ven if I couldn’t get m y d o g to sit still in the kay­ ak.”

Wine & Dine event helps fund cancer research In 2009, Bloomfield Township resident Sidney M o s s w a s diagnosed with multiple m yeloma, an incurable blood cancer. A s he recalls, it w a s a scary time w h e n the 67year-old realized that he might not be around to see his grandchildren grow. However, under the treatment of Dr. Jeffrey Margolis a n d with a stem cell transplant, M o s s ’ cancer is currently in remission. T h e Sixth annual W i n e & Dine in the D, an eve­ ning of gour m e t food, fine wine a n d jazz music, will take over the entire fourth floor of the Westin B o o k Cadillac Hotel on W e d n e s d a y night, Sept. 21.

That has all changed. There are n u m e r o u s n e w drugs currently on the m a r k e t that c a m e from research funded b y M M R F a n d they contin­

ually look to fund more,” M o s s said.

Amateur memorable for local golfers Canton’sJosh Heinze leadsarea playerswithatwo-round totalof 146 Marty Budner Staff Writer

Nine Michigan players teed off in the prestigious U.S. A m a t e u r tourna­ m e n t M o n d a y at Oakland Hills Country Club. Only one of them, N ick Carlson from Hamilton a n d a s o p h o m o r e at the U n i ­ versity of Michigan, a dvanced to m a t c h play. T h e A m a t e u r experience w a s over b y Tbesday evening after 36 holes of stroke play for the remaining eight Michigan participants. While the tournament w a s short lived for Novi’s B e n Smith, Canton’s Josh Heinze a n d B i r m i n g h a m ’s David Hall, the m e m o r i e s they m a d e will

remain forever. Heinze led those area players with a two-round total of 146, including a 74 on the South Course a n d 72 on the North Course. T h e six-over par showing left h i m tied for 144th place overall a m o n g the starting field of 312 players. “It w a s amazing. It w a s a n incredible experience,” said Heinze, w h o golfed four years at P l y m o u t h H i g h School. “I didn’t play the greatest, which kind of stunk.

ON A MISSION Chiefs look to take final step toward Division 1 title Evan Papula C o rr e s p o n d e n t

E v e r y August, Canton h ead coach T i m Baechler has to fill oodles of roles left o pen due to graduation. This year, however, Baechler has very f e w holes to fill with 13 starters returning f r o m the Chiefs’best season since 2006. “I think w h a t ’s exciting is that w e have a lot of guys back with experi­ ence,” Baechler said. “T h e y ’re smart, tough, competitive guys. T h o s e guys win m o s t of the time. “I love that intelligence c o m i n g back, I love that w e h ave a lot of expe­ rience f r o m last year, they played a lot of football games. W e are ahead of schedule mentally c o m p a r e d to last year.” That collage of experience c o m e s f r o m Canton’s run to the Division 1 state semifinals in which it lost to Cass Tech b y a touchdown. T h e Chiefs fin­ ished with a 10-3 record a n d w o n both district a n d regional championships for only the third time in school histo­ ry. “I think they h a d so m u c h fun on that run last year that ‘w h o w o u l d n ’t want to repeat that?’ I’m sure that’s been motivation. It w a s close enough that they got a taste of it,” Baechler said.

Canton quarterback Jake O'Donnell and center Max Mulvaney practice snaps.

R o a d graters Although quarterback Jake O ’D o n ­ nell counts as a returning starter, he will not b e entering preseason practice as n u m b e r one. H e took over as the starter for Joel Foster in the seventh g a m e of last season, but Foster has a chance to r e d e e m himself, according to B a e ­ chler. “T h e r e ’s a little bit of a quarterback competition with h i m ( O ’Donnell) and Joel Foster, it’s open,” Baechler said.

“T h e y ’re getting equal reps a n d will again in the scrimmage. Joel started the first six g a m e s a n d w e decided to m a k e the switch. H e ’s a great kid, w o r k s his butt off; he can run and throw. H e ’s a senior a n d deserves an­ other chance.” W h o e v e r wins the quarterback battle will h ave an experienced offen­ sive line to protect them. That offensive line, w h i c h includes t w o tight ends, returns four starters f r o m a fruitful offensive c a m p a i g n f r o m a year a g o in w h i c h they aver­ aged 37 points per game. O ’Donnell g ave credit to the offen­ sive line for leading the charge of C a n ­ ton’s yearly offensive success. Without the offensive line, Canton’s staple run­ ning g a m e w o u l d n ’t b e as effective as they have b e e n in recent years. “It all starts with our line,” O ’D o n ­ nell said. “T h e y block hard all day long, but never get a n y credit.” Seniors David Gunnis, Jake Warner, Michael Maes, a n d tight e n d B r e n n o n Pelland are the returners that are set to anchor the line this year. Baechler noted that seniors Tyler Santoro a n d M a x M u l v a n e y will add depth to the offensive line. Juniors L o u Baechler, C h a s e Meredith, a n d N o a h B r o w n will compliment Pelland at tight end. “W e ’re h a p p y with a 3- or 4-yard gain; w e ’re never bored with a 3- or 4-yard gain; w e love it a n d w e cele­ brate it. W e celebrate first d o w n s and not fumbling the ball,” Baechler said. See CHIEFS, Page B2

S a l e m R o c k s varsity football coach Kurt Britnell has a formula that he is hopeful will bear fruit dur­ ing the 2016 season. T ake a high school football t e a m to a college c a m p u s in Ada, Ohio, for a f e w days, incorporate togetherness a n d fun into the two-a-days, a n d re­ turn h o m e to Plymouth-Canton-Edu­ cational Park ready to hit the sled running. “S u n d a y w e do our conditioning test, have s o m e leadership activ­ ities,” said Britnell, w h o s e team opens at 6:30 p.m. Friday against Belleville on the junior varsity field at the Park. “M o n d a y it’s the s a m e w e ’d do here, w e ’re in helmets two days, multiple practices throughout the day, W e d n e s d a y shoulder pads. “S a m e thing w e ’d do here, except w e ’re staying on c a m p u s (at Ohio Northern) a n d using their facilities. W e eat together, w alk to the field together.” W h e t h e r or not the team-bonding trip pays dividends remains to be seen; Britnell has taken his teams to preseason c a m p s before a n d only in 2012 did the t e a m contend for a state playoff berth (the R o c k s w e n t 5-4 that season). Last year, S a l e m fin­ ished 3-6. “That’s always the hope of it,” Britnell said. “In the past it hasn’t really carried over as m u c h as w e ’d like to, but this group s e e m s close like the 2012 t e a m so hopefully w e ’ll get s o m e similar results.”

Last year's record: 9-3 (3-1 Central). Titles won lastyear: Division 1 district

All signs point to another stellar football season for N ovi Detroit Catho­ lic Central. Heading into a tough season opener Saturday, Aug. 27 against Sterling Heights Stevenson in the Battle of the Big H o u s e at University of Michigan Stadium, the S h a m r o c k s should again be formidable after finishing 9-3 a year ago before losing to eventual M H S A A Division 1 c h a m p i o n R o m e o in the re­ gional final. C o a c h T o m M a c h , entering his 41st season, likes w hat he sees so far f rom his 2016 class of the Shamrocks. “W e ’re really h a p p y with their atti­ tude,” said M a c h , w h o is 357-93 overall with 10 state titles a n d six runner-up finishes. “It looks like a t e a m that likes each other a n d looks like a t e a m that’s c o m e together, a n d looks like a t eam with s o m e brotherhood. S o w e all h a d a good feeling c o m i n g out of the last cou­ ple of weeks.” Despite a s t e a m y first w e e k of prac­ tice, M a c h w a s pleased with the effort. “A n d I w a s very h a p p y with the kids the w a y they c a m e back this year,” said M a c h , fourth a m o n g all M H S A A coach­ es in wins. “T h e y h a d w o r k e d really hard in the offseason a n d they w o r k e d really hard in the s u m m e r . Got t h e m ­ selves in great shape. A s hot as it’s been this year w e didn’t really see any effect of the heat on us. I mean, everybody w a s hot, but they kind of pushed through that. W e started early a n d left early as m u c h as w e could to keep t hem out of the hard part of the heat during the day.” Last season, Austin B r o w n seized the starting quarterback job in his third w e e k as a freshman a n d appears to be seasoned veteran heading into his sec­ o n d season. “It’s hard for a y o u n g g u y to recog­ nize all the defenses a n d to be able to k n o w which m a n to go to,” M a c h said of the 6-foot-l, 180-pound sophomore. “Y o u got to follow your one-two-three reads. Actually in high school a n d college I think mostly they go one-two a n d that’s it. But h e ’s the kind of g u y that if he doesn’t have that, he can m a k e things happen. H e ’s got a good sense for w h e n to take off with the ball a n d cause you a lot of trouble trying to control him. H e ’s a pretty exciting quarterback a n d he s h o w e d a lot of poise last year a n d I’m sure he’s going to do the s a m e this year.” Senior Nicholas Capatina is the top

Promising newcomers: Chris Jakubik, Sr. Safety-WR, P (6-1,190). Mach says: "Strength-wise Ithink o u r offensive line w e're h o p i n g to b e i m ­ p r o v e d f r o m last year. A n d o u r offensive backs, m a n y are ba c k a n d h a v e a year u n d e r their belts. Ithink we'll b e a little stronger o n offense to b egin t h e season probably t h a n defense.

Helping during the transition period will be captains Mikey Schwartz and Jake Wymer, w h o are slated for midfield and defense, respectively.

FORD EKPIORER SPORT IS VERY POPULAR WITH A CERTAIN NEARLY FORGOTTEN DEMOGRAPHIC: GENERATION X CAR RUYERS At least with o n e nameplate, For d is actively pursuing wha t has become a somewhat

forgotten demographic cohort for auto makers: Generation X. By Dale Buss N e w research s h o w s that the Ford Explorer Sport with stickers starting at about $45,000 versus the low $30,000s for a standard version of the vehicle— has the highest percentage of G e n X buyers of any non-luxury S U V in the United States, reflecting w hat the c o m p a n y calls a generational preference "for exclusivity a n d performance at a great value ” T h e sporty version of Explorer delivers 365 horsepower versus about 275 for the standard version, a n d it has grabbed a significant 15 percent of total nameplate sales since its debut in 2014. Nearly 40 percent of Explorer Sport buyers were b o m between 1965 a n d 1978 c o m p a r e d with 23 percent of buyers of other midsize S U Vs, F ord said. T h e s e buyers “highly rate such attributes as ‘power and pickup,' ‘fun to drive’and ‘overall performance,'” O m a r Odeh, Ford Explorer marketing manager, told me. " T h e best part is

Aut o marketers demonstrate a lot of anxiety, of course, about wha t kind of customer the car-shunning, ridesharing Generation Y will become. A n d baby boomers still represent their most reliable cohort for luxury sales. A simple glance at the n u m b e r s shows w h y it's easy for auto brands and most other marketers to overlook the G c n X generation: Americans in that demographic, n o w ages 35 to 50, n u m b e r only about 66 million compared with about 75 million each of baby boomers and millennials. A n d at this point, the b o o m e r generation still retains the largest concentration of wealth, while G e n Y is setting the trends. But Generation X presents s o m e compelling opportunities nonetheless. " B o o m e r s felt the nee d to display their status in m o r e obvious w ays than G e n Xer s do.” according to Sheryl Connelly, Ford's m a n a g e r of global trends a n d futuring. "While both groups are hugely important, automakers need to pay special attention to G e n Xers. O u r Explorer Sport fits the profile of the successful m e m b e r of Generation X.” Specifically, for instance, the U S household i n c o m e for a buyer of Explorer Sport is $175,000 versus SI 12,000 for the average midsize S U V buyer, revealed a study for Ford by MaritzCX. A n d those Explorer Sport customers w h o d o trade in a vehicle are twice as likely as average midsize S U V buyers (12 percent versus 6 percent) to trade in a p r e m i u m one. “T h e reason they’re so important,” O d e h told m e about GenX-ers,

A n d as they progress to and able to look at brands like Ford and where boomers arc now, it’s important realize that, for the same money, they’re for us to maintain that loyalty and able to get m o r e value, performance not lose t h e m to s o m e other brand." and styling without having to step up H o w are G e n X buyers different an extra $10,000 to $20,000.” In that regard, he explained.
