Before each test drive, an instructor (who accompanied drivers in the front, passenger seat) programmed the car's onboard computer with the driver's weight and a hypothetical number of drinks. The computer than sets a timing delay in the car's steering and brakes.

If PCEP is to become a m o r e disciplined place, rules must e x i s t beginn i n g "in the f i r s t grade," said Bollman. "Someone needs to m a k e a list of w h a t we CaI0| consider a c c e p t a b l e . At W e s t M i d d l e School, we used to have a sign that said Appropriate Language is Used Here.' We wouldn't let kids wear a hat in the hallway, but we wouldn't stop them from b e a t i n g each other up. Where are our priorities?'

'Here's what we need to fix it.' It's a very difficult c h a n g e to make. To change a culture will t a k e us a decade. "It's a complex problem Suzanne Deraham that takes study on the part of staff. Someone who works t h e r o needs to figure it out. I believe in team effort so there can be consensus. The board should have ultimate responsibility. It needs to step up and continue to be accountable and responsible."

"Our excuse (for not enforcing r u l e s ) h a s been t h a t we c a n ' t a f f o r d to have s e c u r i t y , " s h e added. More effective use could be made of the security guards the district does have, she said. " K i d s who a r e a b u s i v e or destructive should be sent down to do detention, d e a n toilets or pick up litter." If high school students are breaking the law, "we should call police," said Bollman. Schools are dirty "because we cut the maintenance staff down to nothing." Dershem said she planned to meet with administrators "to see the facility and get a better idea of what is going on there. I have heard through sources there are problems," said the c a n d i d a t e , a d d i n g t h a t s h e ' s also h e a r d good things about PCEP. "My opinion is t h a t you're going to have kids doing different things at any high school. We need to make sure rules are followed." T h o m a s said he agrees w i t h t h o s e who c o n t e n d c e r t a i n b e h a v i o r s " h a v e no p l a c e in school. "Do we h a v e e n o u g h people to supervise?

Carol Bollman said, "I think we should start negotiating with the secretaries, janitors and bus drivers first a n d t h e t e a c h e r s l a s t . The s u p p o r t s t a f f is so valuable, and we practically disregard them. "I don't think anyone who is a teacher is underpaid in this district," she added. D e r s h e m s a i d , "I t h i n k we need to be reasonable and fair with salaries. We need to hold the line on percentages. I don't think we can afford to be excessive when there are textbooks, supplies, equipment , f u r n i t u r e a n d a lot of t h i n g s t h a t need attention. "Everything is based on perpupil spending we get from the state," Dershem said. "If we only get a 5-percent increase, we can't give our teachers twice that. We have to look at the total picture. It seems they have pretty much given teachers what they want, r a t h e r t h a n toe t h e l i n e and think about w h a t kids need. Everyone considers t h e i r job a tough one." T h o m a s s a i d to k e e p costs down, "We need to engage our

"We will have to do something with contracts."

Labor consultant Bollman said s h e ' s not s u r e "we've evaluated all the options. But to heal problems that exist now, we need a c o n s u l t a n t to bail ourselves out. We need to look at the job description of the p e r s o n we h i r e d a s a s s i s t a n t s u p e r i n t e n d e n t for e m p l o y e e relations. If that person can no longer fulfill those obligations, we need to reconsider that individual's employment." Said Dershem: "I recommended t h a t the d i s t r i c t not spend money on that. I think professional people ought to be able to work out differences in a professional manner. I think teachers need to back off a little bit and take a look at where we are. 0 Thomas said employee relations "got so bad we didn't have any choice" but to hire a labor consultant. "Should taxpayers be paying for it? I don't know that we have anyone in this district who h a s been t r a i n e d in conflict r e s o l u t i o n , " h e s a i d . "Getting an outside perspective may in the long r u n pay huge dividends. We know it works at Ford. Satisfied employees will bring satisfied customers."

Extinction s h a r e s for the a r t s won't have the opportunity to flourish within the next generation. He is not alone. "Funding for the arts throughout t h e United States is minim a l , " s a i d Redford Union a r t teacher Tom Grove. "Generally in o u r c u l t u r e t h e a r t s a r e n ' t h e l d in h i g h e s t e e m a n d we a r e n ' t s u r e where they fit into things - but the popularity of art festivals and craft shows proves otherwise." J o h n Glenn d r a m a t e a c h e r Sherri Smith said the arts being viewed as "less important than other academic areas" is regarded as a "personal insult" to her as an educator. "It's a tragedy for both students and the community as a whole," said Smith.

Garden City High School a r t i n s t r u c t o r Kay P a u p o r e s a i d "getting back to the basics" with less of a concentration on t h e arts is "short-sighted." "The arts provide an outlet for problem-solving and r e q u i r e high orders of thinking," said Paupore. "They help s t u d e n t s solve comprehensive problems through abstract thinking with a link to their emotions. You don't g e t t h a t in m o s t c u r r i c u l u m areas."

Standards They should be able to communicate proficiently in at least one a r t form, including the ability to d e f i n e and solve artistic probl e m s with insight, reason a n d technical proficiency. They should be able to develop a n d p r e s e n t basic a n a l y s e s of works of art from structural, hist o r i c a l , ' a n d c u l t u r a l perspectives, and from combinations of those perspectives. This includes t h e ability to u n d e r s t a n d a n d evaluate work in the various arts disciplines. They should have an informed a c q u a i n t a n c e with e x e m p l a r y w o r k s of art from a variety of cultures and historical periods, and a basic understanding of historical development in the a r t s disciplines, across the arts as a whole, and within cultures. They should be able to relate various types of arts knowledge and "skills within and across the a r t s disciplines. This includes mixing and matching competencies and understandings in artmaking, history and culture, and analysis in any arts-related project. As a result of developing these capabilities, students can arrive at t h e i r own knowledge, beliefs and values for making personal a n d artistic decisions, in other t e r m s , t h e y can a r r i v e a t a broad-based, well-grounded u n d e r s t a n d i n g of t h e n a t u r e , value and meaning of the arts as a part of their own humanity.

Knowing and practicing t h e arts discipline is fundamental to the healthy development of children's minds and spirits. • The arts are worth studying simply because of what they are.

Where am I going? • T h e arts are used to achieve a multitude of human purposes: to present issues, ideas, to teach or persuade^ to entertain, to decorate or to please. Becoming lit-

"Often times, people will call from different cities wanting to know what's going on with our theater because they enjoy the quality e n t e r t a i n m e n t we put forth," said Logan. A minimal budget for contracted services s u c h as conductor and ushers is provided to Logan, but she s a i d s h e r e c e i v e s no money from the school district to fund high school productions. "South Pacific," she estimated, cost $20,000 to produce, including royalties, scenery materials, advertising, m a k e u p a n d costumes.

Teachers find themselves burdened with the task of maintaining a c o n s t a n t flow of income generated from fund-raisers. The d i s t r a c t i o n from candy sales and money collections can overtake a 55- minute class period with m i n i m a l quality time remaining for drawing, singing and acting. "It's a hassle trying to collect money a n d t e a c h c l a s s , " said Gina Strand, Wayne Memorial High School forensic coach. "I feel more like a bank teller some days, but I know it's necessary in order for us to do activities in school."

W e s t l a n d John Glenn band instructor Scott Cramer said his district supports the arts "as much as they possibly can" but 90 p e r c e n t of what it t a k e s to finance the band program comes from fund-raising and boosters.

"If we're all going to be funded equally, I have no problem not accepting PAC money," she said.

Campaign finance was brought up again later in the meeting, with one man turning it into a .personal attack. "Union money got you in," he said. Rivers attempted to explain t h e difficulties of monitoring "soft money" contributions. She said Republican campaigns are usually funded by large checks, while Democrat campaigns are funded by PAC money.

-rI will not argue areue to pros and a cons," she said. She often referred to Roe vs. Wade, saying t h a t "Congress cannot overturn rulings of the Supreme Court." A woman who had experienced a "crisis pregnancy" said prochoice advocates "forced abortion down my throat." She said they presented her with few other choices. "How about we present the choices fairly to a woman whose mind changes every five seconds because of despair." she said. Eventually, the woman chose adoption. Rivers said she supported giving tax credit for adoption. At times, a discussion on gun control became an exercise on free speech. Replying to a specific comment on the Brady Bill, Rivers said: "It doesn't bother me that people who beat their wives or children can't own a gun," replied Rivers to a specific question.

CAPITOL CAPSULES Third try Rep. Gerald Law, R-Plymouth, is confident he will be luckier on his third try for a pet sterilization law. His House Bill 4239 would regulate public and private animal shelters, pet shops and dog pounds. The would be required to either sterilize dogs, cats or ferrets or require persona adopting animals to have them sterilized in a specified period of time. "One year the governor vetoed it," said Law. Gov. John Engler objected that it contained reporting r e q u i r e m e n t s t h a t could have Headlee amendment consequences as unfunded state mandates. "Last year it died. This year it has gone through both chambers," said Law. T h e r e were complications: H u n t e r s wanted a s s u r a n c e s their dogs, if found, wouldn't be a u t o m a t i c a l l y = n e u t e r e d or

spayed. Law said it wasn't necessary because the hunter would be reclaiming his dog, not adopting it. "But I had to put in something for them because they were nervous," he said. Each year more than 200,000 dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters, while others are abandoned and die from sickness, hunger or injury. Only one in five of the 70,000 puppies and kittens born every day in the U.S. will be cared for its entire lifetime. The Kent County Animal Control Shelter, however, has seen a 61 percent decrease in euthanasia since the inception of its mandatory spay/neuter program. Washtenaw County reported a 67 percent decline in euthanasia, according to testimony in legislative hearings. '

Support system Community sustains art involvement after the school bell BY KIMBERLY A- MORTSON STAFF WRITER

It is the community thst stepB in, like an understudy in a play, providing a seamless transition for school districts t h a t have been forced to curtail music and a r t classes due to a. lack of money. Venues where visual arts and music are offered range from the pavilion stage of Westland's new outdoor a m p h i t h e a t e r to the store front window of The Art Gallery in Garden City. In most communities the focus is broad and offerings appeal to all ages whether you're a 5-yearold painter or an 80-year-old musician. Westland, Plymouth, Canton, Redford. Garden City and Livonia all offer after-school programming either at the elementary or secondary level with some sampling of the arts, bridging gaps where lack of funding has left voids. Not all of the communities have symphonies or t h e a t e r troupes, but their location and convenience to each other makes exposure feasible. Year-round activities help keep the arts visible within every Observer area community from an early summer juried art show to a December symphonic concert. Kathleen Salla, volunteer coordinator of Canton Project Arts, said community organizations need to make the arts a priority to maintain a strong connection between learning and creative expression. "We make every effort to develop cultural arts and activities t h a t are both visual and

enjoyable for the community, said Salla. "Young people in particular should be stimulated to gain a deep appreciation of the arts that will last a lifetime."

N u r t u r i n g creativity Artist Sharon Dillenbeck said her new Canton studio (D&M Studio) relocated from Pljonouth, strives to nurture creativity in everyone from her youngest 3year-old students to senior artisans. Multi-age camps and instudio classes enable novice oil painters or cartoonists to have contact with distinguished community artists on a day-to-day basis. Dillenbeck said the lack of exposure children have to the arts comes from a shortage of consistency in the classroom. Funding in some communities is so minimal, said Dillenbeck, there's a different teacher every year. "Children need something to do besides play " Dillenbeck also noted the frustration teachers feel when workshops aren't offered with a focus on t h e a r t s . "Teachers themselves need to be taught to incorporate the arts in their classroom because they help shape small motor skills and build selfesteem," said Dillenbeck. Not only does D&M Studio provide a locale for creativity but also encourages students to market their work, teach classes at the studio and provides an arena for public showing at the annual Liberty Festival in Canton where more than 1.000, pieces of children's artwork went on display last summer.

The Plymouth Community A r t s Council, e s t a b l i s h e d in 1968, facilitates a program that blends outside t a l e n t s in the classroom through the Art Volunteer Program, formerly known as Art Lady. Since 1969, volunteers make monthly presentations with cultural items such as jjnusic, r e p r i n t s , p o s t e r s and sculptures to local classrooms where speakers discuss and display art work. Jennifer Tobin, Plymouth Arts Council executive director, said

School. Students are exposed to live theater and are trained onstage and behind the curtain to act, build sceneries, design cost u m e s and conduct performances. "The t h e a t e r gives children something constructive to do with their lives," said director Blanche Graham. "It's not all fun and play, and the t r a i n i n g requires so much more than hitting a ball."

go before school boards and say 'We are serious about the situation the a r t s are in and you should be too.' * Realizing formal and outward measures need to be taken to insure the livelihood of the arts, the communities of Plymouth and Canton recently formed the Arts Alliance and adopted an objective to make sure the arts are brought back into schools.

continuing education beyond the end of a school day is necessary to augment what's happening in the classroom and not "copy it." Local teachers can apply to receive grants from the council for t h a t very purpose, said Tobin. Amounts ranging from $100 to $400 are used for trips to the symphony or to conduct school-wide art projects. "Our purpose is to expand programming and not let things get any worse," said Tobin. "Parents and community members need to

Tobin said Plymouth and Canton community-based organizations are also collaborating to design a calendar to avoid event conflicts and provide better communication with the media. Garden City m e m b e r and director of The Art Gallery Norma McQueen said her involvement with the arts came late in life but she finds the benefits innumerable. "Art feeds the soul," said McQueen, "yet in the schools they're considered so much less essential than other areas of the curriculum." Although the gallery generally features a r t i s t s 18 years and older, the business offers classes for young children including a clay sculpture course for students 6 to 12 years old. "Our gallery looks to be as supportive and encouraging as possible to spur an appreciation for the a r t s in everyone," said McQueen. Other local examples of programming for children include: • Theatre Guild of RedfordLivonia supports the Creative and Performing A r t s (CAPA) program at C h u r c h i l l High

Acting workshops for kinderg a r t e n - a g e children are also accessible. • The Westland All-Stars is a theater troupe for first through senior high school children, supported by the Bailey Recreation Center and under the direction of Marshall Middle School choir teacher Bill Ingersoll. • Civic Center Library of Livonia h o s t s an a n n u a l s t u d e n t exhibit in the spring where hundreds of young artists are featured and given the opportunity to display their work publicly. Many leaders from the arts community agree i n i t i a t i v e s made by their organizations are only beneficial to children if parents and teachers are resourceful and seek out their offerings, "Children should be given an o p p o r t u n i t y to whet t h e i r appetite for creativity," said Bflb Sheridan, Garden City Fine Arts Association president. "The arts, whether you're in a classroom or involved with A community program, f o i t t r ft natural and innate appreciation you can't gain from mathematlci or social studies."

Elementary budgets force arts to take a back seat to reading, writing BY KIMBERLY A MORTSON STAFF WRITER

By far, elementary-level exposure to visual arts and music has suffered the most dramatic changes in quality, frequency and volume. Art teachers at the elementary level are either non-existent, divide their day between more than one school or find themselves managing "mobile" classrooms. While a d m i n i s t r a t o r s and school boards search for ways to upgrade offerings to students who are at a critical junction for learning, funding ties their hands to limit, or at worst, dissolve structured art classes. Garden City public schools, due to severe budget cutbacks, were forced to eliminate formal art and music classes several years ago. Judy Pizzuti, Garden City curriculum director, said while it has not been approved, the district is hopeful they will be able to reinstate art and music in the elementary program for fall 1997. Currently, the two are incorporated into the curriculum among m a t h e m a t i c s , social studies, English, and reading.

Bennett bill aids strapped schools BY D A R R E L L C L E M STAIT WRITER

The state Senate this week is expected to decide a bill t h a t would p u m p $4 m i l l i o n i n t o Wayne-Westland school district coffers, helping to avert a budget deficit. T h e bill — p u s h e d by s t a t e Sen. Loren Bennett — emerged intact Tuesday from the Senate Appropriations Committee. Bennett s p o k e s m a n Bill S u l l i v a n confirmed. By Thursday, the legislation is expected to be favored in a full Senate vote. Sullivan predicted. That would send the bill to the state House, where s t a t e Reps. Eileen DeHart, D-Westland, and Tom Kelly, D - W a y n e , will be pushing hard for its passage. Bennett, a Canton Township Republican who represents Wayne-Westland, touted his proposed legislation during a May 19 school board meeting, drawing applause from p a r e n t s and educators. T h e bill h a s s i n c e p a s s e d through the Senate's appropriations subcommittee and full appropriations committee on its way to the Senate floor

The money would help WayneWestland school officials avert a budget deficit that could threaten school programs and serviced. The district suffered a money crunch in the wake of Proposal A, a 1994 t a x - s l a s h i n g law. Wayne-Westland lost 10 mills of a tax rate that became linked to future school funding levels. Bennett's measure would provide $4 m i l l i o n in a d d i t i o n a l state aid for 1997-98. The dollars would be gradually phased out over the following seven years, Bennett has said. However, he has warned that the money would be subject each year to a possible line-item veto by the governor. Bennett has raised hopes that Engler will favor the bill — if it s u r v i v e s t h e S e n a t e a n d the House. The district's latest budget deficit estimate of $2.6 million w a s m a d e by P a t r i c i a B r a n d , assistant superintendent of business, during an inquiry in May by the Observer. The budget shortfall had previously been projected as high as $5 million.

Bollman has right perspective


offerings the best possible. We have no doubt that Bollman will represent the voters who elect her. She is not a rubber stamp and will take the time to investigate issues confronting the school board. She is an independent thinker who can help lead the school district into the 21st century. We support her desire for a consistent curriculum t h a t won't let children fall through the cracks as they proceed into middle and high schools. Bollman is a parent whose children have gone through the Plymouth-Canton schools. She recognizes not only the problems, but the strengths of the district and intends to build on them. Bollman is a strong advocate of involving parents and staff on committees that recommend solutions for problems and issues in the district. In the 1990s, this is a far better method of resolving issues than recommendations solely from administration. Parents and staff see the effects of administrative derisions and are primed and ready to offer solutions. We believe Bollman will foster that. We also support Bollman's opinion that indeed there needs to be more discipline and enforcement in the classrooms and in the individual schools. Discipline does not hurt a child's ability to learn. If anything, it might improve the atmosphere for learning. Let's do something different. Let's make this school board election one in which the best candidate is elected. Let's not make this election a popularity contest. Casting a vote for Carol B o l l m a n will do just that.

Our choices in Wayne-Westland A

lthough things may be looking up for Wayne-Westland schools on the state financing front — thanks to the efforts of many — we still face an uphill struggle. This is a major issue facing Wayne-Westland voters as they head to the polls Monday, Jline 9. Although we don't want to ignore other issues such as curriculum and technology, everything boils down to having the money to do these things. ^That's one reason we are endorsing the candidacies of current Wayne-Westland trustees P a t r i c i a B r o w n , an incumbent and Canton resident, and challenger and former trustee Ed T u r n e r who lives in Westland. Brown and Turner would bring an element of consistency to the board and to an issue where the community must stand together and forge ahead. Both have the heart of a servant — something important when public tax dollars and especially children's issues are at stake. They are strongly committed to public education and their communities, which can be seen by the many activities in which they are involved. Neither Brown nor Turner will be afraid to vote for controversial issues if they are for the betterment of the Wayne-Westland schools. Both will take the lead in the ongoing school finance reform issue. Brown has proven herself through her aggressive approach in working with Lansing, her strong stand on tough issues like selling off school properties and her positive attitude toward sharing public information — something everyone should appreciate. She is also an advocate for new technology and for stu-

dents at risk, and has brought a strong leadership role to the board. We applaud incumbent Mathew McCusker's long history in education including his strong ties to the MASB group in Lansing. He is articulate, well-spoken and serves the district well. But we feel it's time for someone new, and Turner deserves a chance at this board seat. Turner can be seen throughout the community, whether on the YMCA board, the Westland Cable Commission or through his involvement with the Wayne-Westland Junior Miss program or elementary school programs. Although often a cheerleader for the community and school district, he also has the skeptical approach needed to review issues and make the right decisions. We offer two.cautions in this endorsement, however. During our candidate interviews, we sensed that the board is not as consolidated as it should be due to political affiliations and issues on which the board has been divided, such as the renaming of Walker-Winter school. We call on the new board to put aside these issues and work together for the good of the community. Also, there was much political posturing about the responsiveness of the current board. Whether t h a t is true, or simply a perception, we call on the new board to make a real effort to include all members of the community. Perceptions can sometimes become reality if no action is taken to counter them.

Be heard on Monday - vote N

ext Monday, June 9, voters in Canton, Garden City, Livonia, Plymouth, Redford and Westland will turn out to vote in their local school board elections. Well, some of them will. Turnouts for school elections are traditionally low, whether the elections are to select board members or to vote on bond or millage issues. Yet listen in on conversations around the office or at social gatherings. Schools and teachers are favorite topics. To paraphrase an adage: "Everyone talks about the schools, but nobody does anything about them." At least, not in the voting booth. The reason for such lack of interest on the part of registered voters is something of a mystery. It has been suggested that people who do not have children attending school feel no particular connection to the school system and

therefore no interest in helping select board members. Maybe, but that doesn't explain the low turnouts when millage or bond issues are on the ballot. Property owners have a direct connection to those issues when their tax bills come around. Another explanation for low voter turnout is that school elections tend to be scheduled at "non-traditional" times of the year, often in the summer when many people are on vacation. Some sinister theories suggest that such scheduling is done deliberately, the idea being that the lower the turnout the more likely a bond or millage issue will be approved. Well, one thing is certain. Every vote cast in any election is important. The smaller the turnout, the more important those individual votes become. Don't just talk about the schools. Go to the polls on J u n e 9. Vote.

our headline in the April 13 Travel section is begging for a reply. It read, "Disney World warm, friendly place for families. I'm glad the Joseph family did not go there on June 7, T h e Seventh Annual Gay & Lesbian Day at the Magical Kingdom" in Orlando. As other families who unknowingly happened to be there on that annual observance in the past can attest to: It is definitely not somewhere to be with your children. Walt Disney Co. - whose very name conjures up images of wholesome family fun - is under attack from religious groups that contend the company has forsaken its moral values in pursuit of the almighty dollar. In fact, the American Family Association called for a boycott of Disney theme parks, movies, retail stores and other products. Among other reasons is the fact that the world's largest "family" entertainment company has extended insurance benefits to the livein partners of homosexual employees, but not unmarried partners of heterosexual employees. Disney has come a long way since "Snow White." Actors Ernie Sabella and Nathan Lane said the characters they played (Timon, the meerkat, and pumbaa, the wart hog) in "The Lion King" are the first homosexual Disney characters ever to come to the screen," New York Times J u n e 12, 1994. Disney is the owner of several subsidiaries - most notably Miramax, Touchstone Pictures and Hollywood Pictures - which buy, produce and/or release R-rated movies.

Admissions policy flawed


will not argue with your editorial about state Rep. Deborah Whyman's sometimes peculiar political behavior. I will, however, take exception with your dismissal of the University of Michigan admissions policy issue as an issue that has "little to do with the daily lives of her constituents." On the contrary, I think, it is an issue that very much concerns the Canton community. We ask, cajole and push our children into academic excellence with the promise that all their efforts will be rewarded. When race and ethnicity take precedence over academic achievement as enrollment factors, our efforts and the efforts of our children become worthless and meaningless. For this reason, any admissions policy not primarily based on academic standing is fundamentally flawed because it is basically unfair. Would it not make absolute sense to concentrate our efforts in providing minority students with the education needed to help them compete academically, on an equal basis with all students, for admission to our colleges and universities instead of pursuing a policy that, in the long run, harms many and benefits few? Regardless of the state representative's motivation in investigating U-M's admissions policy: making sure the policy is fair and legal is a justified endeavor. J a n u s z M. Szyszko Canton

Dershem is their choice A vote for Dershem


uzanne Dershem is the best choice for the Plymouth-Canton school board. Although she understands the funding constraints t h a t Plymouth-Canton operates under due to Proposal A she is aware of the need to reduce the class size and improve teacher morale. Her stand on redistricting is thoughtful and balanced. Roland Thomas has had his turn on the board and freely chose to leave it. Then, without having been involved in the decision to ask for a bond issue, he played a very critical and divisive role in the election. He does not deserve a second chance on the board. What will he do now t h a t he didn't do before? Finally, fewer than three percent of the voters turned out the last time there was a school board election. Is money all people care about? Let's elect competent leadership to oversee the


e are endorsing Suzanne Dershem for school board in the June 9 election. Ms. Dershem has aptly identified the most pressing issues in the Plymouth-Canton district: staff development and relations, community awareness and involvement, and managing growth while improving programs. She already has been addressing these issues over the past months by serving on several school committees. Ms. Dershelm is an engineer by profession, her perspective of product and process design would make an excellent addition to the school board. Please take the time to study the candidates and vote on June 9. Richard and Darice Schubatis Plymouth

Defends students

For school board o one can say that the past year has not been a tumultuous one for the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. Whether it's been class size, the bond issue and now the subsequent legal challenge. teacher contract negotiations or MEAP test scores, the school district, its officials and administrators have had a rough road. That's why it's so important that the new school board member - replacing Carol Bollman longtime member David Artley - have the ability to listen with balance to all sides of an issue, analyze and determine the best course of action for the district as a whole. The Observer urges district residents to elect Carol B o l l m a n . a member of the Housing and Facilities Committee and longtime PTO activist. The 18-year Canton resident is a familiar face who regularly attends school board meetings, gets involved and has a broad viewpoint of the entire district, including the Plymouths. She has paid her dues as an active parent at the elementary, middle and high schools levels. She knows the district and its players. Bollman also served on the citizens committee for hiring a new superintendent. Bollman is definitely more substance than pizzazz and glitz. She is full of studious energy. thought, common sense and a heartfelt desire to make the district and its educational

on the fact t h a t most citizens who live in communities surrounding the Willow Run Airport aren't up to speed on the "tradeport." As a former childhood resident of Romulus, I can honestly say that I don't want to live in the "flight line" again. A tradeport at Willow Run will do just that. Along with the constant airliner thunder, we can expect to see an increase in heavy truck traffic on our roads. Big business could care leas about communities like Canton, Belleville, or Ypsilanti - they don't live here. So, what would you say to a "choice" of whether to have a tradeport or not? Some interests don't want citizens to choose. That's why Rep. Whyman has penned HB 4338, to give residents in surrounding communities the power to choose. Citizens making choices? Novel idea, you say? No, government in action the way it's supposed to be. Some of the provisions allowed by HB 4338 are: • Allows residents of adjacent communities 45 days to place a binding local referendum on the ballot. • States t h a t the ballot question could take place in any city or township adjacent to the proposed tradeport. • Declares that if any adjacent community votes to reject the tradeport, the entire project is terminated. Without this proposed legislation, local communities would suffer from noise pollution and devalued land prices caused by the enterprise zone authority. HB 4338 will allow the decision of the authority to be overruled by local citizens if they believe it is against their best interests. Concerned citizens should contact Rep. Whyman's office at 1-800-555-5021 to request a copy of this proposed legislation. The bill is currently being reviewed by members of the Transportation committee and must pass their approval before seeing any time on the House floor. It's not too late for affected citizens to become involved in a process that could very well decide the fate of several communities. F r a n k Finch Canton


the concrete stage of learning. In this stage, children need repeated hands-on experience* and activity-based lessons to be able to apply what they have learned. When teachers deviatf from this type of instruction and assessment, children show many stress-related symptoms— -»-•» According to the preeminent cognitive psy- % . chologist of our time, J e a n Piaget, the c o n c r e t e stage of development extends from age seven ^ through 11 or 12. During this stage, children's"* thoughts are limited by their actual experiences. They are only beginning to pay attention to more than one idea at a time. They are not y e t capable of dealing with abstractions or inferences. . Elementary school children are excellent observational scientists, but they are not yet ' -w able to go from a general principle to an anticipated outcome (like going from a theory to a hypothesis). The MEAP is asking children to do just this. Many of the MEAP questions for reading are not found right in the text. The children have t o apply prior knowledge to the reading selection -< a difficult task for children at this age. Prior knowledge comes from information and experi| ences in life. Schools do not control life beyond . the classroom and the range of experiences is often great. Another issue of concern is the discrepancy between Michigan's new definition of reading . * • and the MEAP. The new definition of reading states: Reading is a process which enables us to make sense of print. When we read, we use what we already know, combined with the print we see, to make sense of what we read. Reading is about making meaning. It is not about saying words. Reading does not occur unless the reader understands what h a s been read. We are not objecting to appropriate welltimed assessment tools. But the MEAP does not fit either of these criteria. We are looking for an instrument t h a t evaluates each individual's progress and strengths. This instrument would have a meaningful context and would fit our population of children. Then assessment would be closely linked to t h e reality of the active learning environments t h a t we foster in our classrooms.

first met Father Bill (William just doesn't work) Cunningham in the late 1960s, shortly after he founded Focus:HOPE in response to the 1967 Detroit riots. He was an implausible figure then - an Irish priest who rode a Harley, wore his hair long and had a salesman's glitter in his eye that belied the passion in his heart. And he remained an implausible figure through the years when he was building Focus:HOPE into the largest private civil rights and social service organization in southeastern Michigan - by a wide margin the single best promoter in the state, unassailable in his clerical collar and passionate commitment to social justice. By the time he died this past Memorial Day, Father Cunningham had built Focus: HOPE from a small neighborhood feeding program into a giant firm with a product line ranging from food to day care, from remedial education to job training and master's degrees in mechanical engineering. The last time 1 saw him, he was walking gleefully through his state-of-the-art auto parts plant, all lime green hand railings and gray rubberized tile floors, running a job training operation for machinists and engineers that had just received a federal grant in excess of $1 million. • That was a far cry from the days just after the riots, when the real question - not the abstract proposition but the hard reality - was whether Detroit would simply implode from racial bitterness and poverty and despair, an implosion that would take most of southeastern Michigan down with it. : Together with his extraordinary collaborator, Eleanor Josaitia, originally a homemaker from Taylor, he founded Pocus:HOPE in 1968. The two of them made a great pair. Bill Cunningham had the vision, the passion and the charisma, while Eleanor Josaitis plowed along with h^m, bringing order out of chaos, cleaning up after the occasional mess when vision vaulted tfc> far ahead of practicality. ' FocusiHOPE was originally a volunteerbased feeding program for poor people, mostly tingle mothers with babies who would come into an abandoned factory on Oakland Boulevard looking seared and a Utile hostile and come out with a sense that somebody cared. ; But pretty soon it becams clear that merely feeding poor people wasn't going to cut i t Father Cunningham used to like the line

4 . j


about it being far better to give a starving man a fishing rod and teach him to fish than to give him fish to eat, day after day. Which explains why Focus:HOPE quickly got taken up with issues of skills and training and self-help, thanks to Bill Cunningham's great gift of figuring out how to build one thing on top of another. Some mothers originally coming in for a meal found themselves being asked to help out in the child-care center, while others quickly were ± taught to manage the warehouse and schedule the steady stream of volunteers. Job training grants brought in unskilled men to learn to use lathes and read blueprints, an activity quickly converted into a parts supplier organization which rebuilt old parts and sold them to the automobile industry. And that in turn led to a Machinists Training Institute and Center for Advanced Technologies, which have trained something like 5,000 engineers, precision machinists, technicians and manufacturing designers. By the time Bill Cunningham died. Focus:HOPE had an annual budget pushing $80 million and something in excess of 800 employees. But what Father Cunningham did for this region goes far beyond size and scope. His life's gift wss to prove conclusively t h a t s remorseless pragmatism coupled with a passionate vision could go far beyond do-good ism snd well-intentioned charity. He gave this entire region a vision and, yes, a hope t h a t with hard work from everybody things could be better. That's what heroes do. I've never known many heroes, but Fsther Bill Cunningham wss one. And HI sure miss him.

Ok, to finish what I started




ur phone went out last week, fhe phone repair guys left in the middlf of doing their job. They never reconnectedus. Still out, too, was our compute' (still is). The electric company, actually the subcontractor guys, had trouble reconnecting stuff, too. And THOSE guys left. Boy, I sure hope this isn't* guy thing. I have all these sons! I don't want them walking out before the job's done, or leaving if they mess up. "You stick around. You see it through. You started it, you finish i t " I tejl them this all the time. And last week, even though the phone and • computer were down„l couldn't be bogged down. I had stuff to do. Wednesday morning, I packed up the double strolls, a stocked baby bag, my Very Important Fo/der (VIF) and my three athome children. In the van we went. I parked downtown. I got the stroller out and in hopped 3year-old Jack in the front and Steven I put in the back. He sat up so nicely, enjoying the sights of the rare warm May day. Off we went, with my VIF tucked under my arm and a goal tucked under my tenacity. Getting "corporate" sponsors for an athletic/ charity event was my goal for two of the days last week. Doing this for the "Champions for Charity" Gymnastic Exhibition has been just one of the 10 jillion tasks involved with this. (And because of the way of the world, I've had to tackle most all 10 jillion on my own. That's another story.)

Call to volunteer The host gym for this event is the one my daughter belongs to, the one I take her to six days a week for her practices. This gym I know well. It's a privately owned gym and it will, through this event, be heeding the call President Clinton and the former presidents of the U.S. made a few weeks ago, the call to volunteerism, to reach out and help those less fortunate than ourselves. This gym, the Michigan Academy of Gymnastics located on Hix in Westland, has a big heart and a community spirit. It's quite a place! And quite a place in other respects a s well.

Friends of Tri. Each year, as I'd proposed back in F e b r u a r y , a different charity will be selected to be the b e n e f i c i a r y of t h e Champions for Charity Exhibition. I have to say, I'm quite proud of this idea and I'm quite proud of the fact that it's going to be reality in just a few short days, on Sunday, June 8. That's when the athletes, ages 6-17, boys and girls, and parents and families and friends will enter into the "inner sanctum" of the gym. A place rarely seen up close except through the lobby windows. There will be a "meet" portion of the program. And an exhibit i o n portion. A n d - l i k e a r e a l meet, there will be a concession stand, bleachers, programs, souvenir T-shirts, tickets, the whole ball of wax. And corporate sponsors, businesses who've helped defray the cost of ribbon/awards, printing of the programs, coaches' fees, etc. So fbr two days last week, I signed up bfcinesses, approaching them the old-fashioned way, door-to-door and explaining the who, what, where, all that stuff.

With three little ones (no babysitting available, no one else to do t h a t t a s k either), we made about two dozen stops. The stops sandwiched in between ferrying school-aged children to and from school, after-school practices and g a m e s , a n d p r e p a r a t i o n of meals, and all that regular stuff. In the middle of the first sales day, I took the children home to feed them lunch and run about the yard a bit. Slight problem in accomplishing that. I'd lock the keys in t h e v a n s t i l l p a r k e d downtown. Well, home is only about a mile or so away and the sky was clear and it was warm, so away we went.

DEALING WITH A WET BASEMENT A wet basement ranks right up there with a leaky roof as a major cause of concern to prospective buyers. If you have a water problem, it is unlikely that it will go unnoticed. If the buyer's don't Dotice the problem


take a closer look. Buyers are very vulnerable to attacks of "buyer's^ remorse", so they might use this as justification for backing out of the transaction. You should handle any water problems before your agent begins to market your home. If you have a problem with the basement, honesty is the only policy. Be ready to provide a from a reliable waterl | H | company what caused the le „ what was done to correct the situation. Wet basements can usually be handled by rather inexpensive means. If the dampness is caused by clogged gutters or misdirected downspout*, it may be corrected by building up the soil around the base of the house. Your Realtor may be able to provide you with • list of companies that specialize in making wet basement problems go away.

Spartan bats boom against Chiefs BY STEVE K0WAL8B

Livonia Stevenson? A baseball power? Soccer and swimming still take center stage when it comes to earning statewide reputations, but coach Mike Keller's baseball team is making people-take notice. The Spartans won their second straight Class A district championship, dominating Saturday's four-team field at Detroit Catholic Central. S t e v e n s o n beat cross-town rival Livonia Churchill, 9-1, in a semifinal before smacking u p s t a r t Plymouth Canton, 16-8, in the championship game. Canton, 13-16 overall, had reached the final with a 9-8 victory over host CC. T h e g a m e against Canton w a s a s t a r k cont r a s t to the first two meetings between the two W e s t e r n Lakes Activities Association schools.

Canton won the first game, 8-7, and Stevenson won the second game, 2-1, in 10 innings. Keller, who used to coach Walter's Appliance for y e a r s in t h e Livonia Collegiate B a s e b a l l League, hopes to see some of his former colleagues come calling when they need players in the future. The Spartans are now 15-9 overall. "I don't think we're underrated, I j u s t don't t h i n k we have been an established school for y e a r s on t h e baseball end of it," Keller said. "We're slowly turning it around. People looking at ballplayers haven't thought about Stevenson in the past. Somewhere down the road they will start coming around." Stevenson senior left-hander Mike Allison,

who fell behind 1-0 on a solo home run by Canton's David Kwiatkowski in the top of the second inning, earned the pitching victory. Allison, also one of Stevenson's heavy hitters, contributed to a 12-run second inning by the S p a r t a n s that put him in command the rest of the way. The Spartans also received a complete-game pitching performance by Jon Ritzier in the win over Churchill. •We don't have a number one on our club," Keller said. "Mike and John both have been the best for us. It d i d n t m a t t e r who we threw. If you win the district, you have to win two ballgames. It's been nice to win it two years in a row. We're just happy to be there and taking it one game at a time. We're trying to move on a little bit farther." Stevenson collected eight hits in the second Please s«

Plymouth Canton baseball coach Scott Dickey played for D e a r b o r n Divine Child, which has had some success against Detroit Catholic Central. "We beat them 2-1 to go to Tiger S t a d i u m ( f o r - t h e 1984 C a t h o l i c League chsmpionship)," recalled Dickey, a 1985 DC graduate. More than a decade later.

Freebies kill. It's a lesson high school Softball players, by the conclusion of their senior season, know all too well. You j u s t can't give the opposition a break. » Livonia Stevenson and Livonia Churchill both got a detailed clinic in that lesson at Saturday's Class A state district softball tournament, hosted by Livonia Ladywood. In Saturday's first district semifinal. Stevenson had three first-inning wild pitches, walked five and committed two costly errors in losing 9-5 to Plymouth Salem; in the second, Churchill walked nine in an 8-1 loss to Plymouth Canton. Canton, the champion of the Western Lakes Activities Association, ended up winning the district crown with a 13-1 triumph over Salem. "We're a young team," said Stevenson coach Art Anselm. "We've got a lot of 10th graders (five starting) . . . One

error led to all those runs. "We don't normally do that." The Spartans got off to a quick start, scoring twice in the first inning. But Salem answered with four r u n s in the bottom of the first — on one hit, four walks and three costly wild pitches. -With a runner at first and two out, Stevenson starter LeAnne Schraufnagle walked the next two batters to load the bases. A wild pitch brought home the Rocks first run; a single by Maureen Buchanan drove in the second. Buchanan stole second to put runners at second and third, and then Schraufnagle tossed two more wild pitches to bring in two more runs, making it 4-2. In the third, the S p a r t a n s added a run on a two-out single by Stephanie Ladd, trimming Salem's lead to 4-3. But that was as close as they would come. The Rocks pulled away with a

Three straight hits followed — just the second, third and four hits of the game for the Rocks — the first a two-run triple by Becky Esper, the second an RBI triple by Carah Best. Stefanie Volpe's single delivered t h e f i f t h run of the inning, making it 9-3. The Spartans got something going in the sixth, putting the first two batters on base on a hit batsman and a walk. With one out, Teri Fox doubled to bring in two runs. But Salem pitcher Shannon Coultas averted further trouble with a strikeout and, with the bases loaded, a pop out. N e i t h e r team hit particularly well: Salem had five hits, Stevenson four. The loss finished Stevenson's season with a 10-17 record.

Trout fishing will r e m a i n good t h r o u g h o u t the summer months. Salmon fill the streams in the fall and steelhead move in during the early spring.

Many of the best holes are guarded by s n a r U of overhanging branches, blow downs and logs.

1 pretended to ignore it, so it wouldn't be spooked, while I plopped a worm into the countless little holes and hollowB in the creek, but I kept a careful vigilance out of the corner of my eye. The fawn remained bedded down and continued to study my every move until I hooked a 9 - i n c h b r o o k t r o u t a n d t u r n e d t o w a r d B h o r e to u n h o o k my catch (I learned the h a r d way a long time ago never to unhook a trout over the water). The commotion was a little too much for my furry young spectator and the fawn darted out the back of the thicket and out of sight. S p r i n g is a n e x c e l l e n t s e a s o n for spending time outdoors. The arrival of spring s i g n a l s t h e a n n u a l r e b i r t h of nature. Sightings of a fawn, or a fox cub like the one I ran into two weeks ago while turkey hunting, are commonplace since spring is the season of birth in the wild. Springtime also delivers trout season and mushroom picking, both of which

team championship as well. Murinas' total not only carried her past the opening round, but earned her a medal (presented to the top-10 finishers). "She was elated," said Salem coach Rick Wilson. "Her first goal was just to m a k e the cut, because she missed it last year. "I think after the first day, she said to herself, 'Wow, if I can finish in the top 10 III be a medalist.' " Murinas, who has recently committed to attend Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. — she has an interest in the medical field, and she has been told she'll get every chance to make t h e golf t e a m — is t h e f i r s t Salem golfer to medal at state meet in years.

The fawn was bedded down in a thick tangle of brush and I walked within 15 feet of the animal and hadn't noticed it was there. Not until I circled around the thicket and headed back to the edge of the creek did I noticed the ear sticking up from the tangle of foliage. Upon closer scrutiny I realized it was a y o u n g f a w n , bedded down in t h e thickest cover around.





It's called climbing the ladder of aspirations. The trick is: Don't limit yourself, but don't set goals so high t h e y ' r e n e a r l y i m p o s s i b l e to reach. Plymouth Salem senior golfer Katie Murinas followed t h a t format precisely. P e r h a p s she became convinced a y e a r ago. when she missed the first-round cut for the Class A state tournament by a single stroke. Murinas qualified for the state t o u r n a m e n t as a n i n d i v i d u a l again his season. Her p r i m a r y goal remained attainable: Make the first-round cut. At last weekend's tournament, in a field of 85 played at Forest Akers GC in East Lansing, Murinas did even-more: She fired an opening-round 87 Friday to place fifth at the mid-point, then came back with an 86 on Saturday to secure her final fifth-place position with a 173 total. Grandville's Stacy Snider was consistent as well, easily capturing overall medalist honors with two rounds of 78 for a 156 total. Her team shot a 688 to win the

After a walk to Eliiabeth Eisner, Jenny Sikora singled to deliver a run, and an e r r o r in t h e outfield allowed Eisner to race home. "They're ju»t solid," aaid Churchill coach Dana Hardwidge of Canton. "We knew we couldn't give them many runs, because we wouldn't score many." One surprise did greet the Chargers: Canton coach Jim Arnold started senior Sarah Carson, his No. 2 pitcher. "I was (surprised)," Hardwidge said. "We'd faced them twice before, and it was always (Gretchen) Hudson. I know he goes on a kind of rotation basis, and I guess it was her turn." Carson stopped Churchill on three hits, with no walks; the only run off of her was unearned. The Chargers completed their season with a 15-14 mark.

Most projections had Anderson, who stands 6 feet, 10 inches, and throws with the same hand as Johnson, as almost certain to be one of the first four players taken. A "top tenner" at least. Baseball America had him listed as the top overall prospect in the country. Whether signability or other issues figured into his drop from there to No. 19. is something only 18 clubs can answer. "Obviously, Ryan's a guy we spent a great deal of time talking a b o u t , " D e t r o i t scouting director Greg Smith said.

as badly as our o t h e r two seniors, J a c o b s and (Nicole) Tobin." The Spartans added two more goals for good measure in the second half — L a n e t t e Moss with 29:45 remaining and Sue Bear at the 18:45 mark. "You're going to get fewer chances to score in the s t a t e t o u r n a m e n t and when you do you have to capitalize," Kimble said. "We didn't play well the last time we played them because of poor offensive execution. Whether it was the head, the foot, or whatever, we wanted to direct the ball on the net. "It was remarkable in the fact t h a t in practice yesterday we worked on three different things and we were able to score on all three today." It was the 42nd career shutout for Stevenson goalkeeper Jenny Barker, who has allowed only one goal all year. She stopped a first-half breakaway attempt by Churchill's Kersten Conklin. "Each i n d i v i d u a l player is focused on what job they have to do, and collectively they put it together to get the job done." Kimble said. "It was a regional final, of course, and we had the luxury of playing our crosstown rival and it made it much easier to get up for the game." Churchill bowed out with a 134-4 record. The C h a r g e r s found t h e m selves u n d e r an avalanche of Stevenson blue jerseys. "They (Stevenson) won every s i n g l e ball in t h e air and a m a j o r i t y of the 50-50 b a l l s , " Churchill coach Chad Campau said. "They pressured us hard right from the top of the game. "I warned my team about the restarts. The key was going to be the free kicks and the corner kicks and that's how they scored their first two goals." Nothing seemed to go right for the Chargers. "Toward the end we tried to take away their bragging rights, but we couldn't come up with a goal," Campau said.

with Seattle." The Mariners almost certainly will argue they got a first four choice at No. 19 — and you know A n d e r s o n ' s a g e n t s , - t h e Hend r i c k s b r o t h e r s of H o u s t o n , Texas, are going to take t h a t negotiating tact. "I'm still the same pitcher that I was as a (possible) number one," Anderson said. "My talent hasn't decreased." "We do our homework," said Ken Madeja, the Michigan scout who followed Anderson for the Mariners. "We look into things like signability. "He's a guy we followed the whole year, in fact, ever since he was 16. So we've seen a whole lot of him. He was there when we picked, so we couldn't let him go."

Be careful when tiling Q. We are planning on installing ceramic tile in our kitchen. We have had two contractors give us estimates, and they were somewhat different. Which method is better - (1) gluing the tile to the plywood s u b f l o o r or (2) putting down a "mud" base? A. A single layer of plywood is completely insufficient. You must add "underlayment" prior to installing the ceramic tile. However, it is important to inspect the floor joist spans before you proceed. Ceramic tile is a very rigid material. Most ceramic tiles will crack if there is movement underneath the tile. Some wood floor systems when designed to minimum standards have too m u c h flex in them. The flex or "bounce" will crack tiles. Floor joists are basically wood "I" beans for a given floor joist. You can increase the distance between supports, but the joist will deflect a greater amount. Floor joists beneath ceramic tile floors must not deflect more than 1/360th of their span. Assuming your

joists are No. 1 grand and the span is no greater that 16'9", you can proceed. You have two choices of underlayment: 3/8-inch cementitious board. Both will perform exceptionally as long as you install them carefully. Your existing subfloor should be securely attached to the floor joists. Drywall screws work well, but use ones that have coarse threads. If you choose to use exterior plywood, the spacing of the sheets is critical. The 3/8-inch plywood edges must be offset from existing plywood edges at least 2 inches in each direction. You must also be sure to maintain a 1/8-inch spacing around each sheet of plywood. Plywood expands with changes in humidity. If spaced too tightly, the plywood will buckle and crack the tile. Attach the plywood with nails or screws that will penetrate the floor joists at 3/4 inch. Be sure to screw the edges. Cementitious board makes a great underlayment, but it requires some additional labor. It is necessary to install the cementitious board in a layer of

fresh thin set or dry set mortar. This material acts as a filler for any low spots in the plywood. Without this layer of thin set, the board may flex under foot traffic, causing the ceramic tile to crack. The cementitious board is the existing plywood and floor joists with galvanized nails and screws. If you choose exterior plywood as underlayment, you must use an organic adhesive or an epoxy mortar as a bonding agent between the tile and the wood. A latex premodified Portland cement mortar " will create long-lasting adhesion should you decide to u s e the cementitious board underlayment.

Special angle: Move over, Beanie, there's a new baby in town. Michael Tonda and Michael Sneil, owners of Raphael's Magnificent Possessions, have witnessed a retail phenomenon in their store at 1799 Coolidge in Berkley: the Wishing Pyramid. Once customers buy one as a gift, they return to buy more in multiples; the demand is so great the store can barely keep the pyramids on the shelves. In the 13th century a Czechoslovakian engineer rediscovered that the pyramid shape could be used as a tool for concentrating and channeling energy In recent years, the popularity of pyramids has grown with people looking to improve their lives with alternative methods. Raphael's carries a wide variety of Wishing Pyramids in four different sizes, in rich colors ranging from emerald green to iridescent black and priced from $14 to $34. Call (248)546-0194. ,

Handcrafted in Italy, the bookends are reproduced in the Renaissance Florentine tradition. This astronomical model of a 17th century armillary sphere, featuring an Earth model that rotates, is used to display the supposed relationships between the principal celestial bodies, including signs of the zodiac. Both spheres measure six inches high and rest on a finished wood base. The Armillary and Globe Bookend Set retails for $50 at Rand McNally in the Somerset Collection, Big Beaver at Coolidge in Troy. Call (248) 643-7470. The bookends are also available with a double armillary or double globe for $60 and $40, respectively.

The old days taught many things The year w a s 1972 and I had just clocked 65,000 miles on a b r a n d - n e w Ford Torino driving back a n d f o r t h across the state of Michigan. My job for the Amana Corporation JOE G A G N O N was t o take care of customer relations and to find and teach independent service companies how to repair Amana products. It was a period of long hours and m a n y service meetings, but it afforded me knowledge of what w a s going on in my industry.


We had just moved into a renovated building on Eight Mile near Woodward in Ferndale that was then our offices a n d w a r e h o u s e facility s e r v i n g the Michigan area. My boss. Jack Plating, found us a w a r e h o u s e m a n a g e r by the n a m e of Louie Florio, who had spent years work-

ing for the Phiko Corporation, and we brought him out of retirement I remember d u r i n g his interview when he showed me how to load a large side-by-side refrigerator onto a dolly. This little robust guy made me look like an amateur as h e grabbed that wire band around the box and with one hand accomplished what I couldn't do with two. * He was always so pleasant and we shared old stories from his earlier years in the business that were fun to listen to. A few years ago someone told me that Louie had passed away, and I felt guilty at not keeping in touch. Yesterday I was going through the weekly mail I receive at the r a d i o station w h e n a return address on an envelope jumped out at me. The name was Dennis Florio and I'd like to print here what his short letter said: "Joe - 1 really enjoy your program. My father talks about you a lot. He used to work with you at Amana. (Louie Florio). Give him a call if you get a chance.

His number is.... Thanks, Dennis. Folks, I read that short note and I can't tell you how so few words could mean so much. I will be calling Louie before this column is in your hands. Today, the Amana Corporation is up for sale, and I u n d e r s t a n d a foreign manufacturer is seriously looking at the purchase. With the few major players left in the appliance industry, this is big news in my business. What good it will do for consumers is yet to be told, but whoever buys them will be already receiving a first-class company. In the old days there came a time when we had to hire a new secretary for the Amana branch and once again Louie was put to good use. He knew a lady who had retired from Philco, and we w e r e blessed to hire Charlene Charlesworth She worked for us for several y e a r s before retiring again, and there was no finer lady in the world.

A few years back I was doing a consumer seminar for a group of seniors in Plymouth and as is normal I was late getting Ihere. I ran down the hall to the stage area and standing in a group in front of the entrance door were eight of the past employees of the Amana Corporation. I stopped in front of them with great surprise, as they informed m? that they had set up this seminar. I vflas choked with emotion as the tears flowed down my cheeks and I embraced each one of them. The old days never l e a v e me as 1 remember all that I learned during those years. Each one of the employees was a friend, and we all treated each other with great affection. It's no wonder that the president and founder of Amana, George Forestner, once said, "Joe, you have the greatest bunch of people in your branch than any other in the country." They made it happen.

Before you decide on any eel purchase, it's important to understand the differences between cels. There are three major types of cels: sericels, limited edition eels and production cels. Sericels are silkscreens on acetate eels, generally sold in limited editions. They are generally the most affordable of the three types of cels, starting at about $200. A family could buy a "Snow White" sericel for about $250. Limited edition cels are created in limited quantities for sale. They don't appear in an actual cartoon. A limited edition eel of "Snow White" might sell for around $800. Production cels are the actual handpainted eel used in a given cartoon. Although the eel may have been cut from the final -film, or be a color model used for color quality control, production cels are either copied onto the eel using a Xerographic process or handinked from the original pencil sketch. Production eel prices vary, depending


"For example, a 1930s Mickey Mouse production eel is probably over $10,000 but a 1950s Mickey Mouse can sell for anywhere from $1,200 to $2,000. Limited editions are popular because you always get that perfect scene. Some cels are signed by the artist." Whether you're considering a production eel, limited edition eel or sericel, all three choices are very good keepsakes to start y o u r family collection, commemorate a birth or mark a new milestone in your family How does your family spend quality time together?

How are radon levels reduced? While there are various methods for r a d o n r e d u c t i o n , the mOst c o m m o n methods work through soil suction. In this newspaper's readership area, the cost for such a system is typically $800 to $1,000. Soil suction methods work exceedingly well for a couple of reasons. First, soil suction h e l p s to r e m o v e radon before it enters the house; this usually eliminates the need to exchange air or take other more e x p e n s i v e steps to reduce levels in the home. Second, the air pressure inside the home is usually lower than it is in the soil around the home's foundation. Science tells us that n a t u r e constantly strives for equilibrium, thus radon-containing soil gas infiltrates as a means of correcting the imbalance. Soil suction mechanically corrects the imbalance, lessening the higher air pressure in the soil under the home.

Another plant you may wish to grow is the Tigridia, or Tiger Flower, which is also in the Iris family. Tigridias grow from corms; flower colors range from shades of purple and rose to white, yellow and orange. Set them in the ground three to four inches deep and six to 10 inches apart. They grow best in a sunny location. Begonias can perform well in a shady area and are generally bought as bedding plants here. Set the tubers just at the surface of the soil 12 to 18 inches apart. When the weather is very hot, a light spray of water will be appreciated. When flowering declines, cut the foliage back to four to six inches and stop watering. n*#sdoy,June

How about some tasty tips Few things are as thrilling to me as looking out of my not so p l u m b 1840 kitchen w i n d o w , i'tp * and seeing a p p l e green crowned I stalks of asparagus I popping out of their I trench and through our sandy soil. RUTH MOSSOK As much as 1 love JOHNSTON my h e r b g a r d e n , and reap great benefit from its flourish, there is something almost magical about asparagus. The long anticipated wait of three y e a r s before harvest is well worth it. This cherished member of the lily family (which also includes onions, leeks, and garlic), has roots in Greece, and dates back 2,500 years. Not only elegant and tasty, asparagus is a good source of potassium, vitamins; B6, A, a n d C, triamin and folic acid (folacin) - low in calories, no fat, no

cholesterol and is low in sodium. Michigan is third in the nation for the production of asparagus, yielding over 25 million pounds of asparagus yearly and to celebrate, there is an annual festival held in Hart, Mich. This year marks the 24th Annual National Asparagus Festival - "Stalking the Good Life," and Oceana County will make you plenty welcome with all kinds of activities on June 13-15. For i n f o r m a t i o n check with the Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board, (517) 669-4250 or (517) 347-2530.' Asparagus tips: • If planting asparagus in your garden, make sure your soil is sandy plant in a trench and await the growth process. Year one: a crown forms with approximately six inches of root ending. Year two: the asparagus crown grows into a fern. Year three: time to harvest. • If buying asparagus, look for fresh, firm spears with a closed crown. A purple hue on the crown is no indication of age or discoloration. Buy stalks that are

the same size in diameter for consistency in cooking time. • Your choice of pencil-thin or thicker stalked asparagus, is purely personal. One isn't finer or more tender than the other. • While some prefer only the tips, the stalks are quite delicious, especially in soups, or processed and pureed for a sauce. • Asparagus can be peeled or left unpeeled. Willams-Sonoma stores sell an asparagus peeler, or a small sharp knife will do. "Rie asparagus peeler does provide for an extravagant gift during gift giving holidays, or an unusual hostess gift. i • To keep fresh asparagus fresh, keep it clean, covered and cold, or wrap stem ends in moist paper towels, or stand upright into a few inches of cool water. Cook and eat asparagus as soon as pos-

sible. It will keep for a few days in the refrigerator. • Asparagus can bj? steamed, boiled, sauteed, grilled, stir-fried, or baked in a casserole. • Flavor the oil (with herbs, garlic or spices) in which you will be cooking the asparagus. • Asparagus makes wonderful soup, a great ingredient for a quiche or stir-fry. Puree of asparagus is a wonderful base for sauces to top pastas, rice, or over a meat, fish or p o u l t r y entree. Cooked asparagus makes a delicious and nutritious side dish or salad. Award-winning cookbook author and chef Joanne Weir has just come out with a new p u b l i c a t i o n - this one is for Williams-Sonoma: " S p r i n g - R e c i p e s Inspired by Nature's Bounty" published by Time-Life Books, a division of Time Life Inc., 1997. Joan has a few tips of her own. "Using a small, sharp knife, cut off the woody stem end of each asparagus spear. Alternatively, firmly grasp the end and snap it off; the stalk will break naturally at the proper point. Using a vegetable peeler, strip away the tough outer skin of the asparagus spear, starting 1-2 inches (25-5 cm) below the base of the tip and cutting sightly thicker as you near the end."


1 1 / 2 pound (750 g) asparagus spears 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice 1/4 cup (2 oz/60 g) unsalted butter, at room t e m p e r a t u r e salt and freshly ground pepper 2 pounds (1 kg) bay scallops Preheat oven to 425° F (220°C). Cut or snap off the tough stem ends from the asparagus spears and discard. Cut the s p e a r s into 1 1/2-inch (4cm) lengths. Bring a large saucepan threefourths full of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and boil until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain well and set aside. In a small bowl, using a fork mash together the orange zest/orange juice, butter and salt and pepper to taste, Cut out 6 h e a r t s from p a r c h m e n t paper, each one 12 inches (30 cm) high and 12 inches (30 cm) wide at its widest point. Spread the 6 parchment hearts in a single layer on a work surface. Divide the scallops and asparagus evenly among them, placing them on the right half* of each heart. Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with the orange butter. Fold the left half of each heart over the filling and, beginning at one end, fold and crease the edges together securely so

no juices will escape. Place in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake until the packets have puffed considerably, 7-10 m i n u t e s . Remove from the oven and place on warmed individual plates. Cut open the top of each packet with scissors and serve immediately. Serves 6 Recipe from: "Spring -Recipes Inspired by Nature's Bounty' COOK'S NOTES

Zest: thin strips of rind removed from a citrus fruit - only taking away the col-

ored rind, leaving behind the white part. Zesters are available at all cooking shops - it is a tool specifically designed to remove the rind - this handled short bladed tool with sharp-edged small holes (usually 5) can be f o u n d at WillamsSonoma, Bed, Bath and Beyond stores and the Kitchen Glamor Shops. Parchment paper can be bought at upscale groceries (Hiller's Food Emporiums - formerly called Shopping Center Markets) or at kitchen shops.

then routed to the exterior with a fan installed either outside the home or in some non-living space area such as an attic or a garage. The fan is connected to the home's electrical system (insist on a permit) and then runs continuously to draw soil gas out before it reaches the home's interior. Active s u b s l a b s u c t i o n works the same way, except that a hole must be cut into the basement floor. Often, only one entry point is needed to reduce radon levels effectively. If very high levels of radon exist and/or there is poor air flow under the slab, more than one suction pipe and hole in the floor m a y be needed. In

southeast Michigan, this is rarely the case. When radon levels are relatively low, the fan can sometimes be eliminated, with the radon reduction system relying on passive exhausting of the soil gas from inside the house.

Home Comfort is an inside job. That's why it makes sense to call Bergstrom's, a third generation company serving Metro Detroit since 1957. Since a central air conditioner is a major investment, we'll help you make an informed decision on which model unit to purchase. Our estimator will balance your comfort needs with your financial concerns. An air conditioner's SEER value, or Seasonable Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of how efficiently an air conditioner uses electricity. This rating is similar in nature to the miles-per-gallon rating for cars, and provides a waytoryou to judge which models will be more economical to use. Most older air conditioners tall in the 6-8 SEER range, whereas newer models rate in the 10-16 SEER range. In the summer, this commonly translates to a 30% savings on electric bills. Bergstrom's offers free estimates on new installations! For more information speak with a representative at Bergstrom's Inc. Plumbing and Heating.

Paranoid a b o u t "getting old," Butler s a i d t h e y wanted to do it "while we still could do it. It waa just a question of everybody getting on the phone s n d actually talking to each other, which we haven "t done for afowyears " "Sore feelings had to be cleared. Once that wss out ef the way; we put the band together and played a bit

to see if it was going to work." It worked just fine and aa a result Black Sabbath will be the feature of "OzzFest "97" which comes to Pine Knob Music T h e a t r e in Independence Township at 2 p.m Thursday, J u n e 12.

In 1991, Corigliano's "Ghosts of V e r s a i l l e s " was t h e f i r s t new opera at the Met in 25 years.

"The initial idea (for the festival) was to come back to the area and celebrate a family bond," said James. The next step for the festival, according to Tony, is to broaden t h a t bond beyond Bloomfield Hills.

"Thia ia (alao) a great way for different congregations to come together." While many call the festival a collection of some of the finest t a l e n t of chamber muaic muaicians, the Tocco brothers simply refer to the nArt two-week celebration in more personal terms. They call it a family reunion."

Kung F u Radio" (DreamWorks Records) "action rock." "Being in a band is as close as I could get to being a n actual super hero," said PM5K singer/lyricist Spider.

Joining Downset, Neurosis, and Slo-Burn are: • C o a l C h a m b e r , called a "hybrid of Korn, Fear Factory, and White Zombie" by Kerrang! magazine, tapped into the personal lives of its members while w r i t i n g lyrics for its self-titled debut (Roadrunner). Lead singer Dez's wife left him the day he began work on "Coal Chamber" inspiring the song "Unspoiled." (He had previously left the band for six m o n t h s at her urging.) " M a k i n g t h i s r e c o r d was t h e most difficult thing any of us has ever gone through. We were challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally, and it was pure hell, especially on my end. I needed to rid myself of all this emotion so that I could feel all right again," Dez said. • Drain S.T.H., an all-female

If we don't play muaic of our time, then we're merely propagating a dead art." An integral part of Tocco'a mission to s u s t a i n c o n t e m p o r a r y chamber music is the establishm e n t of t h e S h o u s e C h a m b e r Music I n s t i t u t e , made possibly by a g r a n t from the Katherine Fileqe S h o u s e Foundation. During the two-week festival, five fledgling chamber ensembles will be c o a c h e d by t h e wellestablished performing artists in

a t t e n d a n c e . "We can't r u n t h e risk in classical music to be perceived as relics," said Tbcco. Quite the contrary. Throughout his life, Tocco has either seemed precocious or at the leading edge of his art.

These remixes are a tool for our next record and will continue to influence and inspire us as a band," said guitarist Dino Cazares. • Machine Head's debut, 1994's "Burn My Eyes" was the top-selling d e b u t album in the history of Roadrunner Records.

years of touring, "Official Live" will feature 10 live tracks plus two new studio songs.

Three songs on the hardcore band's album - "Element," " W a y s to D e s t r o y One's Ambition" and "Excess" - trace this path.

lor party. The mayhem t h a t follows in "Trial and E r r o r " is h a r m l e s s e n o u g h a n d s o m e t i m e s even funny. The teaming of every guy Jeff Daniels and "Seinfeld's" Michael R i c h a r d s i s n ' t a bad i d e p , especially if you take my ac^jice and wait for this courtrt»m comedy on video. When C h a r l i e is assigned to dafend a future in-law in a dusty

Nevada desert town, Richard follows and brings some actor buddies with him. Charlie ends u p sick from the party, so it's h i s friend who strolls into the courtroom to try the case. You c a n ' t help but c o m p a r e "Trial and Error" to "Liar Liar," t h e manic J i m Carrey comedy t h a t remains one of the y e a r ' s funniest. Courtroom movies are s t a t i c by n a t u r e and t h i s one needs something to liven it up. T h a t something is supposed to be R i c h a r d s . As K r a m e r on " S e i n f e l d , " his e n t r a n c e s a n d pratfalls always draw applause and a laugh. Here they're almost grating, proving that, like many television actors, he's g r e a t in small doses but can't sustain an entire film. He s h o u l d be c o m f o r t a b l e enough with the material, which is essentially TV-style situation c o m e d y blown u p for t h e big screen. The movie takes place in


about three main locationa and rarely strays from its small stable of characters. One of t h e p r o b l e m s w i t h "Trial and Error" is that director J o n a t h a n L y n n ("My C o u s i n Vinny") doesn't look around for potential weirdos in the woodwork. There m u s t be some oddball yokels in t h i s picturesque Nevada town, but we never get a chance to meet them. Rip Torn proves an exception. He's well-cast as the defendant, a v e t e r a n con m a n who h a s bilked hundreds out of $17.99 for a copper engraving of Abraham Lincoln. What did they get for t h e i r m o n e y ? A b r a n d new penny. T h e r e are o t h e r f u n n y bits. Against C h a r l i e ' s wishes, Richard brings in an expert witness, a New Age doctor who equates the defendant's sugarheavy diet with drug addiction (she even has charts). When the

They figure they've already got you pegged. That's Detroit all over, and it can be frustrating. Go to another city a n d tell them y o u ' r e from Detroit. The f r e e a s s o c i a t i o n s that sometimes pop out of their mouths are dumbfounding. "Oh, you guys flipped over a cop car

when you won the World Series." That was 1984. Get over it. "You guys set d u m p s t e r s on fire on Devil's Night." Not for y e a r s , t h a n k you. "You guys gave us c a r s a n d M o t o w n . " All r i g h t , already! Well, every week in this column, and on Backstage Pass on Channel 56, we give you ammunition for those conversations by showcasing our a r e a ' s a r t i s t i c and cultural diversity. Sure we gave t h e world Motown, but we're also the worldwide nexus for techno music. With the likes of Sponge, The Verve Pipe, Vuou Hippies, et al, the major labels have zeroed in on Detroit as the current hotbed for hard-driving new r o c k . And D e t r o i t ' s also unique in having a large number of working, touring Ska bands in its recent history. S k a is e a s i l y t h e p e p p i e s t music you'll ever hear. Its most recognizable feature is the syncopated guitar t h a t continually works its way up and down the scale in quick, one-lick b u r s t s throughout most of the songs. It has an intoxicating effect. Ska players tend to bound a r o u n d the stage like Tigger hepped up on coffee and amphetamines. All that jumping and squirming quickly spreads to the audience.

a n d soon t h e w h o l e room is engulfed in a mischievous, frolicsome energy. If you're not careful, you're liable to become a Ska fan, characterized by an amalgamation of uniquely "90s piercing and facial hair patterns, and the clothing your dad wore when he was slim in those earliest of color photographs patterned pullovers, narrow ties, and thinbrimmed fedoras made of wicker. On tonight's show, The Articles - a Ska band that's been gigging all over the city, and will soon be releasing t h e i r first CD - perform live in the Channel 56 studio. The Articles purvey traditional, jazz-influenced Jamaican Ska with a d a s h of Desi Arnaz, often covering or otherwise paying tribute to the works of seminal jazzmen like Monk, Bird, and Mingus. This g r a b - b a g a d m i x t u r e of sounds and influences may seem glib, but make no mistake, these a r e s e r i o u s m u s i c i a n s . Never mind t h a t t h e y h a v e way too much fun.

I Know: NeitlKapron, a student at Our Lady of Sorrows, raises his hand to respond to a question about trees and their role in home construction.

Q. I am h a v i n g a p r o b lem with t h e DNE in several instances and believe that they have exceeded their authority a n d a r e o p e r a t i n g arbitrarily. What can be done?

A. A p p a r e n t l y you a r e n o t alone in your s e n t i ments, based upon a recent Michigan Court of Appeals decision. Generally speaking, the agency's r e g u l a tion, standard or instruction of g e n e r a l applicability t h a t implements or applies laws enforced or administ e r e d by a n a g e n c y s u c h a s t h e s t a t e D e p a r t m e n t of N a t u r a l Resources is not enforceable if it is not promulgated properly as a rule p u r s u a n t to the Administrative Procedures Act. In a recent case involving a dispute over a marina owned and operated by a developer, the Michigan Court of Appeals stated that "in this case, the DNR charitably may be described as a n agency zealously enforcing the environmental laws under its jurisdiction. Its conduct msy be described less charitably as that of a rogue agency wielding i t s e x t e n s i v e power to p u n i s h a n d harass a landowner for daring to insist on and asserting its constitutional and statutory rights." I would suggest t h a t you consult w i t h legal counsel regarding your problems with the DNR. Robert M. Meianer is an Oakland County area attorney concentrating his practice in the areas of condominiums, real estate, corporate law and litigation. You are invited to submit topics that you would like to see discussed in tku column, including questions about condominiums, by writing Robert M Meisner, 30200 Telegraph Road, Suite 467.

Working plans: Adorno and Karen Piccinini share real blue prints; of a condominium they actually build in the aHomes of Our Own education program.

Today's c h i l d r e n a r e t o m o r r o w ' s home owners. T h a t ' s why r e s i d e n t i a l builders K a r e n a n d A d o r n o P i c c i n i n i got involved with "Homes of Our Own," an education program developed by the National Association of Home Builders to explain the construction process at a kid's level of understanding. Recently, the Piccininis entertained second graders at Our Lady of Sorrows School in F a r m i n g t o n Hills with a brief talk and video. And the kids ate it up, coming away with a coloring book, a blueprint of a condo and a real pine seedling to plant at home. "I liked the movie, listening to the tree talk," said Lauren Kennedy. "I learned you could make so much things from wood - squares, triangles," said Robert Dolecki. "I didn't know how much trees you would use for a house (25, on average)," said Alicia Grant. S a r a h Rogers and Ryan Seitz said afterwards that they might enjoy getting into the business some day, themselves. "My dad sells paints, and I may want to be a builder so my dad could sell p a i n t s to me a n d I g i v e t h e m to painters," Rogers said. "It kind of looked fun," Seitz said The Piccininis, active in the Building Industry Association of Southeastern Michigan, gently spoke with words the kids could understand. "As developers, we buy land, dig up dirt, put in streets and fire hydrants," K a r e n s a i d . "As b u i l d e r s , we build h o m e s , a p a r t m e n t s a n d condominiums." "People pick homes on needs - how far they are from work, how far from schools, s h o p p i n g , g r o c e r y stores," Adorno said. "Builders make comfortable homes by getting p e r m i t s from cities." The Piccininis and the video made parallels between animals living in the woods and people living in houses, the v a r i o u s jobs involved in building a house and the recycling/replanting of wood products and trees. The couple looked forward to personalizing the building industry to young people and dispelling some myths. "Our industry gets a lot of negative press," Adorno said. "In reality, we're planting a lot more trees than we're taking down." "We're conscious of the environment and regulations," Karen said. "We want to get that out by example." "Skilled trades are so low (in numbers) now," Adorno said.

"We've been studying community," she said. "It really fit in well. Houses have to do with needs and wants. Child r e n g e t t o see how m a n y j o b s (upwards of 200) building a house can give."

Renters You really do need property insurance Renters shouldn't overlook the need for insurance to protect their personal belongings. "Unlike the owner of a house, who needs insurance coverage for both the dwelling and its contents, the r e n t e r needs a policy to protect just his personal belongings," Leanne Snay, executive~3rrector of the Michigan Association of Insurance Companies, said. If the renter's Tjurtrhng is destroyed, t h e i n s u r a n c e policy b o u g h t by t h e lamUsrd or property owner will cover the b u i l d i n g only. To recover for the loss of personal effects, including furnishing, the renter rnnst have his own policy. However, it is e s t i m a t e d t h a t less that 20 percent of all renters nationally buy i n s u r s n c e to cover t h e i r belonging* There is a policy tailored to fit the needs of renters, according to the insurance i n d u s t r y s p o k e s w o m e n . The renter* policy or HO-4 covers damage to possessions t h a t result from perils such s s explosion, fire or lightening,

windstorm or hair, riot or civil commotion, theft and vandalism. It is similar to t h e p a c k a g e policy t h a t can be bought by the owner of a home. The primary difference is that the renters policy doesn't include coverage on the dwelling structure. Normally, t h e r e n t e r s policy reimb u r s e s for losses on a n a c t u a l c a s h value basis. This mesns that the insurance company will pay r e p l a c e m e n t cost, less depreciation. If the renter is willing to pay more, any insurer offer an endorsement to the policy that will cover contents on a replacement cost basis. The key is t h e words "replacement cost basis" Although t h e r e n t e r s policy covers personal belongings such ss furniture, appliances, clothing and jewelry, there are limitations on amounts of coverage for certain types of personal property that are especially susceptible to loss For example, coverage for cash generally has s $200 limit. O t h e r v a l u s h l s s , s u c h a s jewelry, furs, firearms and silverware, have lim-

itations for their loss. These limits vary b e t w e e n $1,000 a n d $2,500. For an additional premium, the consumer can buy a policy endorsement t h s t specifically describes each item and includes its dollar value. The key word to communicate with your agent is "floater" The renters policy usually includes several other coverages. Examples of these are: • Additional living e x p e n s e s t h a t might be incurred if t h e residence is temporarily uninhabitable after a loss. • P e r s o n a l liability i n s u r a n c e for bodily injury/property damage claims or lawsuits. • Alterations or improvements the r e n t e r h a s m a d e to t h e b u i l d i n g at his/her own expense.

Tailor a home mortgage to your needs


Many of the newest o f f e r i n g s in t h e constantly changing home f i n a n c e m a r k e t have been a d v a n t a g e o u s to consumers because they provide flexibility in either the length of the loan, the amount of the monthly payment, or the ability to obtain equity out of the home. On t h e o t h e r h a n d , DAVID C. c o n v e n t i o n a l mortMULLY g a g e s h a v e worked well for m a n y people. They allow home buyers to make paym e n t s at a set a m o u n t for 15 or 30 years and, if they need cash, take out a h o m e e q u i t y loan or r e f i n a n c e the mortgage. MORTGAGE SHOPPING

I've recently been alerted to an innovative mortgage that puts home buyers in control of their mortgage and lets t h e m tailor t h e m o r t g a g e exactly to their needs. Michigan National Bank now offers the "Tailored Home Loan" t h a t lets home owners systematically increase their payments to build equity faster, access pre-paid principal if the need arises, and change other aspects of the mortgage throughout the term of the loan. "This new program was developed for people who want the ability to change t h e terms of their mortgage a s their f i n a n c i a l needs change," s a i d Mark Harwood, consumer segment marketing manager. "We believe t h i s is the first program of its kind in t h e USA, a n d we believe it is g o i n g to be extremely popular." T h e biggest shock for m o s t home buyers comes when the lender presents the loan disclosure form and they realize j u s t how much i n t e r e s t they are going to pay over a period of 15 to 30 years. The Tailored Home Loan offers new levels of flexibility and control for homeowners who wish to manage their mortgage throughout t h e life of that mortgage. Homeowners can save thousands of dollars in interest by making accelerated p a y m e n t s and m a k i n g additional lump sum payments, thus reducing the term of their mortgage and saving significant interest expense a n d having access to their principle for personal use. In addition, customers may lock in their rate for up to five years at various times during the life of their mortgage T h i s p r o d u c t o f f e r s m a n y of t h e advantages of different types of mortgage products, all rolled into one. It makes it possible to: • Pay off the loan f a s t e r t h a n most conventional mortgages • Save a significant a m o u n t of the money that would otherwise be spent on interest. • Use the equity built u p through previous principal payments. • Switch from an a d j u s t a b l e to a f i x e d - r a t e (for p e r i o d s of u p to five W e a e e s e efcULY,ft

If the sounds are coming from the circulator bearings, replace the circulator. Circulator pump bearings should be lubricated at least once a year with motor oil, typically sold at hardware stores. Newer circulator pump motors, however, are usually permanently lubricated.

INTERNET ACCESS: Experts at NuTooaO, a leading tmnt/mb—rvr manufacturer of central cleaning or systems, cite other advantages: - • Superior dust pick-up. Theee systems are especially great for thoee who suffer from household

dust allergies. They remove dust from t h e room and c a p t u r e it with dual filtration inside t h e power unit instead of recycling fine particles of dust back into the air you breathe. • Convenience and easy-^anying. Your days of lugging around a heavy vacuum cleaner could be over. Spend less time d u s t i n g and vacuuming and more t i m e doing the things you want to do. The system's built-in power unit will really be appreciated when cleaning stairs. • Quiet as you clean. Since the power unit is located away from living areas, so is most of t h e noise. This means the system is so quiet, you can even vscuum when you're on the phone. • Added resale value of your home. One of the features most desired by homeowners today. The company also offers a wide selection of tools snd accessories to m e e t i n d i v i d u a l c l e a n i n g needs and an easy-to-use, timesaving automatic dustpan inlet called the Vac Pan™. This great i n n o v a t i o n provides the d a i l y convenience of cleaning smooth floors without bending or using s dustpan.

Look for structural quality when buying home With the warmer temperatures, many people begin searching for new homes or start working with their builders to custom design and construct the dwelling of their dreams. While looking at the beauty of the kitchen and master bedroom and bathroom in a model home, or while viewing plans, industry experts suggest buyers thoroughly examine the structural construction and materials to be used in the building of their homes. "What it really comes down to is asking builders lots of questions and coming armed with information," explains David Boivin, vice president of marketing for building products manufacturer CertainTeed Corporation. For instance, while quality can be easily d e m o n s t r a t e d via such items as a hardwood floor or brand of appliance, some things within a home can be hid-

den or overlooked because they are not easily seen. One example of this is insulation. Insulation is usually not visible to the potential buyer, especially in sidewalls. How does a h o m e o w n e r t h e n know what material is in the wall and what the quality of the product is? This is especially important when you consider t h a t insulation is a product t h a t must be installed correctly otherwise thermal performance is sacrificed. To e n s u r e high q u a l i t y i n s u l a t i o n installations, the National Association of Home B u i l d e r s (NAHB) R e s e a r c h Center h a s developed a Certified Contractor Program, the only program of its kind where an independent third party certifies the installation of a building product in new homes. T h i s program is setting new quality s t a n d a r d s in the housing industry for

Protect eyes during spring cleaning With spring just around the corner, many of us are planning our traditional housecleaning and yard r e s t o r a t i o n s . B u t in t h e f e v e r of cleaning, don't forget to take precautions - according to the U.S. Eye Injury Registry, almost forty percent of eye i n j u r i e s occur in the home. Below are some safety tips from the American Academy of Ophthalmology: Safety in t h e backyard: Stones, twigs, and other debris become dangerous projectiles after shooting out of the blades of a lawn mower and can i n j u r e eyes including those of innocent bystanders. Before using a l a w n m o w e r , p o w e r t r i m m e r or edger, be sure to check for rocks and stones. When using pesticides around the yard, always point the s p r a y - c a n nozzle away from your face. Eye protection around the home: Many household chemicals, such as cleaning fluids, detergents, and ammonia, are extremely hazardous and can burn the eye's delicate tissues. When using chemicals for home improvement, always read instructions and labels carefully, work in a well-ventilated area, and make sure spray nozzles point away from you before spraying. After use, wash your h a n d s thoroughly! Use of tight-fitting goggles, available at hardware stores, is also advisable, especially w h e n s p r a y i n g or s p l a s h i n g is involved. The majority of eye injuries
