Residents of a Michigan Avenue mobile home park are still plagued with standing water problems. More than a month after owners of Sherwood Village promised to correct poor drainage along M Street, water is

keeping lawns soaked and mold growing along nearby curbs. "They haven't done anything," resident William Long said. "We w a n t them to live up to their promise. We were told in May it would be fixed." Compounding matters, according to residents, is harassing behavior from m a n a g e m e n t since newspaper and television news reports came out in early July. They say they're getting numerous citations designed to drive 5 them out of Sherwood. "We're definitely being harassed," said Joe Baker. "It's not fair." Attempts by the Observer to contact Sherwood management for comment on this story were unsuccessful. ~~ Please see SHERWOOD, A4

The 831 Plymouth-Canton students scheduled to attend the newly constructed Discovery Middle School in Canton Township won't get to view their new classrooms until the first day of schoolDistrict officials had hoped Discovery would be completed a week before classes begin Aug. 29 to let students tour the building and get acquainted with their new surroundings. However, the very tight construction schedule won't allow that to happen. "The eontraetoz couldn't guarantee we could get in the building at a specific date before school open?, ®o we decided to plan for the first day of classes," said Principal Roche LaVictor. "This isn't exactly the way we wanted to handle the situation, but we'll do the best we can." La Victor said the building will open Aug. 29 at 7:30 a.m., with students being directed to the gymnasium. Stu-

Safety first Incidents heighten awareness of gas leaks HOME EXPLOSION Natural gas explosions in Redford and Canton last week leveled two homes and claimed two lives. The blasts have neighbors questioning the safety of their own gas appliances. "It's frightening. It could have happened to any of us," said a shaken woman in the Redford neighborhood. A cracked flexible line behind a gas stove is blamed for the Tuesday morning explosion that killed Regina Jacobi and Norbert "Jake" Jacobi of Redford. The escaped gas ignited when Mrs. Jacobi turned on a burner on the stove. The Canton explosion appears to have been caused by a broken natural gas line in the basement leading to the furnace. "It failed. It was completely broken," said Canton Fire Chief Mike Rorabacher. Homeowner Richard Carell, 60, was released Thursday from University of Michigan Hospi-

tal. Homeowner Lorraine Careli. 63. remained hospitalized in serious condition. "Natural gas is still a very safe fuel, but like anything, it needs to be handled properly," said Amy Messano, Media Relations with MichCon. Messano said that natural gas has no odor but that all utilities add a chemical called m e r c a p t a n t h a t gives the fuel a "pungent, rotten egg odor." "In a normal situation, you should never smell natural gas." said Messano, "If you smell natural gas leave the house. Open a door or windows. Do not use the light switches, the telephone or even a cell phone. Get to a safe place, then call." "Gas l e a k s are t r e a t e d as our number one priority," said George Valrance, chief investigator of MichCon's claims division. "If people smell gas there is something wrong and they should take action immediately. If you walk into a room and P l e a s e see GAS LEAKS, A2

Police beef up patrols at local condominiums BY SCOTT DANIEL STAFF WRITER

[email protected]

Canton's Police Department is beefing up patrols of condominium complexes in light of recent break-ins. Nearly two dozen homes at Bedford Villas and Carriage Park have been robbed since late July. Similar breakins have been reported in Westland, Livonia, Farmington and Farmington Hills over the past few months. "We're doing w h a t we can to be proactive," Canton Police Capt. Laura

Golles said. "We've stepped up motorcycle and bike patrols." Bedford Villas, which is on Haggerty Road south of Ford, was the latest to be hit. Six condominiums were broken into on Aug. 2. Jewelry and cash were among items stolen from the homes. "They're stealing things that can be easily transported," Golles said. Carriage Park Condominiums, which sit just east of Canton Center Road and south of Ford, were hit on July 27. P l e a s e s e e PATROLS, A4

Pedestrian killed while crossing Michigan Ave. BY SCOTT DANIEL STAFF WRITER

A 53-year-old Canton man was killed early Wednesday morning on Michigan Avenue. Robert Gautherat was hit as he tried to cross the eastbound lanes of Michigan east of Lotz Road. The incident occurred shortly before 5 a.m. "There is no indication of fault on the part of the driver," Canton Police Capt. Laura Golles said. Gautherat was hit by a 50-year-old

Brighton man. He was driving between 40-50 mph in a 2000 Chevy Blazer. Ironically, both men worked at a nearby GM plant, Golles said. Gautherat was pronounced dead at the scene. He died of multiple injuries, according to the Wayne County Medical Examiner's office. His body had not been claimed by any family member as of press time Friday. Gautherat was the second person to die on Canton roads in four days. Kimberly A. Reith, 28, of Belleville, Please see FATAL, A4

tioning greatly reduced the amount of ventilation in today's homes. Valrance said in actuality gas company's responsibility ends at the meter and it is the responsibility home owners to maintain natural gas lines in their home and on their property. However, the company is always willing to assist consumers with questions, concerns or gas leaks. MichCon urges consumers to "consider h a v i n g your f u r n a c e inspected annually. Ideally, before the h e a t i n g season begins." C o n s u m e r s should call your local contractor or gas company to schedule an inspection. A service charge is typically required for this type of inspection. Valrance had one other warning to the public. "If you are storing your l a w n mower or snow blower in your garage or basem e n t you a r e living w i t h danger." He said the devices could only be stored safely inside a structure if their fuel tanks were completely dry. MichCon recommends: B Follow m a n u f a c t u r e r s instructions on the care and use of gas appliances. • Use qualified contractors for gas a p p l i a n c e r e p a i r s and installations.

"It's very unusual that somet h i n g w o u l d h a p p e n like t h e Sumner Street (Redford) explosion without someone noticing the smell of gas. I can't explain it." V a l r a n c e said flexible lines behind gas stoves are designed with movement in mind. "They a r e m a d e w h e r e t h e y can be moved to clean behind them or retrieve dropped items." "When you m o v e t h e r a n g e you've got to be careful," Valrance said. "Move it out and back slowly and don't crimp or pinch the line." For people who are concerned a b o u t t h e s a f e t y of t h e i r gas appliances, Valrance recommends calling a licensed contractor or plumber. "Do-it-yourselfers can check their gas lines with soapy water and a brush," Valrance said. "Gas will bubble or foam from any cracks or open joints."

Home Depot store has residents seeing double BY TEDD SCHNEIDER STAFF W R I T E R

[email protected]

The Canton retail climate is g r o w i n g so r a p i d l y t h a t t h e township will soon boast two of everything. Well, not really. B u t H o m e Depot has opened a second location, its "South Canton" store on Michigan Avenue west of Canton Center Road. The store, which opened to the public on T h u r s d a y , j o i n s t h e Ford Road store as Canton locat i o n s for t h e n a t i o n ' s l a r g e s t home improvement chain. "We're all one company, so I don't really look at it as a competitive thing," said Robert P u r t e l l , m a n a g e r of t h e n e w store. "This is still an expanding m a r k e t a n d t h e r e ' s room f o r both." The new store is designed to draw customers from neighborhoods adjacent to Canton and as far away as Ann Arbor. There are no plans to close t h e Ford Road store, Purtell said. It adds 150 jobs to Canton's economy, which includes about 90 employees from outside the company. Purtell said the store is still looking to fill another 15 or so positions.

The Michigan Avenue store, at 121,000 s q u a r e f e e t w i t h an adjacent 10,000 square-foot outdoor garden center, is slightly larger than its Ford Road counterpart. I t can a c c o m m o d a t e larger merchandise and there is some difference in the products and product line the store will carry, Purtell said. For example, the Michigan Avenue location has a full line of appliances, including the Maytag brand. Appliances have been added to compete with Lowe's, which is new to the Detroit area and second nationally to Home Depot in t h e so-called "big box" home improvement category. Lowe's has a store in Westland. P u r t e l l said t h e M i c h i g a n A v e n u e s t o r e will c a r r y an u n u s u a l l y l a r g e s e l e c t i o n of w a t e r h e a t e r s to m e e t t h e demand of new home construction in the area. Store hours are 6 a.m.-lO p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 6 a.m.-ll p.m. Friday; and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday. Home Depot will continue its involvement in the Canton community, Purtell said. At a preview p a r t y on Wednesday, the s t o r e p r e s e n t e d d o n a t i o n s of $1,500 each to the Canton Pub-

lie Library and the Canton Community Foundation. The manager said such efforts fall u n d e r t h e A t l a n t a - b a s e d company's "Team Depot" program and have included cooperative efforts w i t h H a b i t a t for Humanity, playground construction, clean-up projects in Detroit and links with area non-profit organizations. The new store is the 39th in Michigan and one of more than 1,000 nationwide operated by the retailer. The publicly-owned company reported net sales of $38.4 billion in 1999.

Street residents dated July 6. "We h a v e i n v e s t i g a t e d your concerns r e g a r d i n g Sherwood Village," it stated. "We are currently working to help improve the water drainage situation." Richelle Long said it h a s n ' t happened. Glenn Ridge, which is owned by some of the same owners a s Sherwood, gets more of Willis' attention, she added. "We're totally getting blown off for the other park," Long said. Amy Baker said park management has a history of promising

to fix problems then not delivering. Large holes have remained in her yard and graffiti stayed on her home for a year, she said. "We p a y o u r r e n t e v e r y month," said Baker. "If it's late, we get charged a fee. What are they going to pay us for being late?" Meanwhile, William Long says m a n a g e m e n t is w r i t i n g violations for things that were previo u s l y o k a y . He s a i d h e h a s placed his garbage cans near the front of his home since moving into Sherwood a few years ago. Long said he was recently written up for it for the first time. "The more violation? we get," he added, "the easier it is to evict us. We're in a no-win situation." Long has also been cited for not cutting his grass.

"While the staff from Lowell has t r a n s f e r r e d to Discovery, only about 30 percent of the students w i l l be t h e s a m e b e c a u s e of redistricting. A lot of kids won't know a n y of the a d u l t s in the building." LaVictor said each grade will go with homeroom teachers to get schedules and a tour of the building. About 9:15 a.m, students will go to their homerooms and then have a modified schedule for the half-day of classes. "We'll h a v e t e a c h e r s in t h e hallways to help guide students, and each child will get a map of t h e b u i l d i n g , " s a i d LaVictor.

LaVictor said teachers will be allowed in the building Aug. 21 to begin putting together their classrooms. Educators are required to start work Aug. 28, one day before students arrive. The custodial staff has been in Discovery for s e v e r a l w e e k s , learning the layout, cleaning the building and waxing the floors. "Not everything will be ready the first day of school," admitted LaVictor. "Some of the technology won't be ready, some of the f l o o r i n g will s t i l l n e e d to be done, we'll have some late arriving furniture. But, for the most part, everything else is ready for students. "We'll, still have, contractors working on t h e building a f t e r hours, putting the finishing touches," but classes won't be disrupted."

Brian MacAskill, project manager for Mc/SEV C o n s u l t a n t s and Construction M a n a g e r s of Redford Township, said t h e b u i l d i n g is a b o u t 95 p e r c e n t complete. "We've had what is termed a 5 0 - p e r c e n t i n s p e c t i o n by t h e state fire marshal's office, and it went well," said MacAskill. "We'll have another inspection Aug. 22, at which time we hope to have our occupancy permit." Wayne County health inspectors are due in this coming week to look over the kitchen, which is already completed. A final electrical inspection is also on t h e horizon. "We've always said this project was g o i n g to be d o w n to t h e wire, and it is," said MacAskill. "However, b a r r i n g a n y t h i n g m a j o r , t h e r e ' s no r e a s o n t h i s building won't open on time." Discovery is on H a n f o r d a t Canton Center Road.

T h e w i f e of U. S. S e n a t o r Spencer Abraham came to the area looking for help Thursday, and hopes she found a sympathetic ear with the folks at First Step. Abraham is seeking his second t e r m in t h e U.S. Senate. Mrs. Abraham spoke to the First Step leadership staff. The First Step organization was formed in Western Wayne County more t h a n two decades ago and works with the victims of domestic violence and sexual a s s a u l t . Among o t h e r t h i n g s , they operate a shelter for battered women. J a n e A b r a h a m w a s in Plymouth trying to raise awareness of the tragic effect of date rape drugs like GHB. Ten regional t a s k f o r c e s will be s e t u p in Michigan, she said. "We would like to h a v e this organization represented," Abrah a m said. "It's critical t h a t we deal with this now before it gets out of hand.

GHB's s c i e n t i f i c n a m e is g a m m a hydroxybutyric acid. "With all the different names for it, a lot of kids don't know what they are taking," said Ilene Hogan of First Step's non-resid e n t i a l p r o g r a m . "They d o n ' t r e a l i z e t h a t t h i s is a d e a d l y drug. I t is a clear liquid t h a t is colorless, odorless, and practically tasteless. They go to parties and see people drinking bottles of w a t e r and, with body image issues, there are people taking it who say t h a t you feel d r u n k without the calories." Adults don't know how to educate and protect kids because a campaign to "just say no," doesn't work, A b r a h a m said. Kids who have this drug slipped into their drink don't get to say yes. After Abraham advocated bett e r recognition of GHB, F i r s t Step workers emphasized their job challenges. They a s s i s t in about 6,000 cases annually.

Metro project reaches a milestone B Y RICHARD PEARL STAFF WRITER

[email protected]

Michigan's largest passenger airport marked milestones in both construction and passenger counts in the past 10 days. On Wednesday, a topping-out ceremony at Wayne County's Detroit Metropolitan Airport celebrated completion of the steel mainframe for the new Midfield Terminal. The facility is to be finished by December 2001. On Aug. 4, just five days earlier, Metro officials announced that the airport continues to set all-time passenger records — the major reason for the $1.2-billion Midfield project. Officials said first-half statistics for 2000 showed that, in the first six months, some 17,661,329 passengers had utilized the airport, a 6.4 percent increase over last year. They also noted t h a t J u n e 2000 bested J u n e 1999 by*2.8 percent., m a k i n g it t h e 78th month in the past 83 in which Metro has broken all-time passenger records. International passengers led t h e way, with a f i r s t - h a l f increase of 14.2 percent. "These numbers dramatically underscore the importance of Wayne County's capital improvem e n t program," said Wayne County Executive E d w a r d H. McNamara. The new entrance from Interstate 275, a sixth jet runway and the new 99-gate midfield terminal "will alleviate congestion and allow the carriers plenty of room for future growth," he said. On Wednesday, d u r i n g t h e topping-out, McNamara tied it all together by noting that last year, Metro "served more than 34 million passengers - that's more than three times the population of the State of Michigan." Noting the midfield project also is "the largest public works project" in the state's history, McNamara added it "is, by far, one of the most important projects our community and state will ever see, and its completion is just 17 months away." In the topping-out, held just 364 days after workers erected the first piece of the 14,500 tons )f structural steel used in the lew t e r m i n a l , project work Ijrews put into place the final,

brated the fact there were no fatalities on the job-site during that phase of construction. "It's been an exciting couple of years for us," said Dunn, noting his company recently w a s awarded the contract to re-build the Ford Rouge assembly plant and is also building the new Minneapolis ; Convention Center, plus facilities for Honda and General Motors. McNamara called the toppingout "an exciting day for the people of Wayne County and Michigan. The sfeel and concrete that is now in place serves as more than just a symbol of hope for a better tomorrow, but stands as real proof that the best is yet to come." "This is a significant milestone for this project," said Jim Greenwald; vice president for facilities and airport affairs at Northwest Airlines, who is responsible for design and construction of the new terminal. The project is a public-private partnership between N o r t h w e s t and t h e county. "This community and our customers can now see this remarkable facility taking shape and

understand the tremendous benefits it will bring to air travel in Michigan," Greenwald said. "Northwest has done a magnificent job keeping this project ontime and on-budget," said McNamara. The "topping-out" ceremony provided workers the chance to sign t h e f i n a l , white-painted steel beam. The new Midfield Terminal will feature 99 gates, 18 luggage carousels, an 11,500-space parking garage and an automated express t r a m system, all in an open and spacious environment. Most airlines at Metro posted first-half passenger increases, including-Sun Country, which was up 45.3 percent; America West, up 36 percent; Spirit, 26 percent, Comair, 14.3 percent, and Mesaba, Northwest's commuter line, up 12.1 percent. Northwest posted an increase of 11.3 percent, followed by Cont i n e n t a l , up 5.8; United, 5.5; American 3.7; Delta 1.3 and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, up .6 percent.

Circuit Court warned to correct large budget deficit; BY RICHARD PEARL STAFF WRITER [email protected]

Wayne County's a d m i n i s t r a tion is calling for the 3rd Circuit Court to take "immediate corrective action" to eliminate what it says is a $9-million deficit in the current budget year. In a n Aug. 8 l e t t e r to Chief Judge Michael F. Sapala, county Budget Director Thomas J. Naughton cites "the latest quarterly projection" and states, "Due to the gravity of t h i s

Margin

1 The new deficit could increase the county's estimated $ll-million deficit to at Beast $20 million. situation...it is imperative t h a t the court takes immediate corrective action to eliminate this deficit." Suggested actions include ceasing "all-non-essential Court services and purchases, a reduct i o n of w o r k d a y s or h o u r s , employee f u r l o u g h s or layoffs

(and) the identification of new or additional revenues or any other m e t h o d s the C o u r t decides to use. "It is critical however that the Court manages its operations so that it completes this fiscal year within its authorized budget and complies with the requirements of t h e Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act," Naughton concludes. Sapala and Court Administrator Alexander J. Luvall said in a joint statement they are "reviewing Mr. Naughton's numbers and we are confident that any budget issues will be favorably resolved

in the very near future. "However, we are concerned that Mr. Naughton's suggestions recommending employee layoffs and other drastic measures without first verifying these projected figures or discussing them with t h e C o u r t is p r e m a t u r e a n d could be d a n g e r o u s l y misconstrued," they said. They reassured the public and e m p l o y e e s t h a t "we n e i t h e r anticipate reduction of services n o r do we p l a n any employee layoffs." They vowed to "thoroughly check and validate these numbers."

If action is required, "we will proceed" in a manner t h a t "fulfills court obligations, "protects all employees and provides the citizens of Wayne County with the service they deserve." Luvall plans to have f u r t h e r discussions with Naughton next week, according to spokeswoman Llenda Jackson-Leslie. Naughton is out of town and could not be r e a c h e d for comment. The new deficit could increase the county's estimated $ l l - m i l lion deficit to at least $20 million, according to a n observer

close to the situation. » Naughton's letter estimates t h a t t h e court "will exceed its t 1999-2000 a u t h o r i z e d b u d g e t and deplete its operating approp r i a t i o n s by t h e b e g i n n i n g of-f S e p t e m b e r , n e a r l y t h i r t y (30) [j days before the end of the coun-^ ty's fiscal year," unless the court; acts immediately. He adds t h a t the estimated] court deficit could reach $12 miT-'[ lion, if $3.1 million in savings! attributable to county adminis* t r a t i v e chargebacks are reallo- 1 ' cated.

New vote totals issued by the Wayne County elections offjce on Friday changed t h e margins between the top four finishers in the 3rd Circuit C o u r t p r i m a r y election, but left the top four list intact. The c h a n g e in t o t a l s c a m e from the tallies from at least two dozen Detroit precincts whose tallies had not been received by t h a t city's elections office and therefore had not been transmitted to the county office. T h e t o p f o u r f i n i s h e r s face each other in the Nov. 7 general election for two open seats. The new totals from the county's more than 2,000 precincts which become official a f t e r the c o u n t y B o a r d of C a n v a s s e r s meets Aug. 22 - showed Kathleen McCarthy of Dearborn still the top vote-getter with 40,333, up f r o m 39,365 r e p o r t e d on Wednesday. R e t a i n i n g s e c o n d p l a c e is Annette Jurkiewicz Berry of Plymouth Township, w i t h 30,344, up from 29,884. T h i r d p l a c e is s t i l l h e l d by J a n e E. Gillis of Grosse Pointe Farms with 23,099 (22,724 previously), while fourth is retained by Ronald Giles of Detroit with 23,043. Giles' t o t a l r e p r e s e n t e d t h e most significant change: It widened his m a r g i n over fifthplace finisher Robert L. McClinton, also Detroit, from only one vote to 30. On W e d n e s d a y , G i l e s h a d 22,420 v o t e s to 2 2 , 4 1 9 f o r McClinton. By Friday, the margin was 23,043 to 23,013. Any c a n d i d a t e s e e k i n g a recount will have to pay a fee of $10 per precinct, according to Carol Larkin of the county elections office.

Observer stars stick with it at U-M It's not easy making it in big-time football. For guys like Joe Sgroi and Kirk Moundros, getting a chance to play for the U n i v e r s i t y of Michigan is the chance of a lifetime — o n e that is worth grabbing.

Hole-in-one Craig Fleming of Plymouth got a hole-in-one at the Woodlands Golf Course in Van Buren Township, acing the 126-yard fifth hole on Aug. 3. The 55-year-old Fleming used an eight-iron to get his ace.

Award-winner Nick Cabauatan, who will be entering his junior year at Plymouth Canton HS, earned the Nu-Station Award at the Five Star Basketball Camp in Pittsburgh. Cabauatan, who will be entering his third year on Canton's varsity basketball team, was also runner-up for the Top Guard in Camp Award. A total of 375 players from all over the country participated in the camp.

Walk-ons in college football are usually the equivalent of tackling dummies. They a r e cheap, expendable and their basic job is to help the other players to get better without getting them hurt. But every once in a while, things go the right way — the hard work and effort get noticed and rewarded. That's what happened with North Farmington grad Kirk Moundros, and could happen to Catholic Central's Joe

Sgroi. Both walked on at the University of Michigan. Both paid their dues during the course of the 1998 season. The payoff for both came during 1999, seeing a lot of special teams play, with Moundros also seeing time as fullback. And both hope to have their role with the Wolverines continue to grow. "I like to contribute as much as possible," said Sgroi, a Plymouth native who graduated from CC in 1998. "I just want to be on the field. Whether it is the punt (team), extra points or anything else, whatever I can do to help the team, I'll do." Sgroi played in 10 games last season

— missing just the Notre Dame and Rice contests. He's listed as a linebacker, but at 5-11, 204 pounds, he's a little undersized to play that spot in the Big Ten. However, he's perfectly suited for his specialty — long snapper. "Maybe I am a little undersized for center," said Sgroi with a smile during Friday's media day at Michigan Stadium. "But my job is to get down field rather than protect the punter. I'm better down Joe Sgroi Kirk Moundros field than the bigger guys." Plymouth resident North Farmington grad Sgroi stated that case last year as he had one solo tackle, two assists and forced a fumble against North- special t e a m s in 1999 as well, butwestern. This year, he enters the sea- unlike Sgroi, saw some time at fullback and was awarded a scholarship by: son as No. 1 on the depth chart. "There's still a lot of competition for head coach Lloyd Carr just before last; the spot," said Sgroi. "It's good so far, season. but as long as it helps the team, that's "My attitude is a lot like Joe's," said what matters." Moundros spent most of his time on

Crusaders have championship stuff BYC.J. RISAK SPORTS EDITOR

Like any coach in any sport, when Madonna University volleyball coach Jerry Abraham says, "I'm very excited about this group here," you're immediate reaction is that it must be taken for what it is: a slight overdose of preseason optimism. Then you start examining what he's got coming back. Yeah, there are losses. But those additions — and suddenly you realize that even when Abraham says, "I think we're a better team than last year. We're more seasoned, more confident" — well, he may indeed be snowballing you, but not with an overabundance of optimism. He may be downplaying the situation. Make no mistake. The Crusaders are loaded. As for the reliability of sources, with Abraham — the only volleyball coach in Madonna's history — 40-win seasons are almost expected. He called 1999 "one of my worst seasons." Well record-wise, maybe it was. After all, the Lady Crusaders were "only" 2914 overall. And they did have to share the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference crown with Cornerstone College, both posting 11-1 records. If you believe that's a bad season, then you'd also think George Bush would make a good president. Anyway, as A b r a h a m did add, "There were a lot of highlights, too." One that can't be overstated was his coaching. What Madonna didn't have last season was a lot of depth (just 11 players), and when injuries struck — setter Jennie Wind, now a junior, and senior outside hitter Erin Cunningham both missed matches — he had to scramble to find replacements. Then late in the season freshman setter Jen Wing left the team, wreaking more havoc. Still, the Crusaders played on, and played well. Those kinds of problems shouldn't reoccur this season. The strong recruiting class Abraham h a s delivered should see to that. But first the leaders: Three seniors who have a total of eight starting seasons between them. At the top of the list is 5-foot-1 ^middle h i t t e r All-American B r a n d y Malewski, a Redford Thurston graduate. The two-time all-conference player led Madonna in kills (603, with a .496 kill percentage) and blocking (158 solos, 575 total) and was third in digs (566). Then, there's 6-1 outside hitter Kelly Artymovich, who was t h i r d on the team in kills (287, .260 percentage), second in digs (598) and fourth in blocks (211). Cunningham, who played less than half the season, totaled 155 kills (.303 percentage). All three will share the team captaincy. "They're real leaders on the floor," said Abraham. "They lead by example. They have a great work ethic. All three despise losing." An impressive group to build around, but by no means is that all. Indeed, the recruits Abraham has coming in mean "competition is fierce" for playing time. Also back from last season is 6-0 junior setter Jennie Wind, a Birmingh a m Groves g r a d u a t e who paced Madonna with an 8.94 assists-to-kills per game average. She also had 132 blocks. Other key returnees are 5-10 junior outside hitter Marylu Hemme, a Plymouth native and Livonia Ladywood graduate who led Madonna in service aces (77) and digs (620); 6-1 junior

Now for the recruits. If there was a concern last season, it was the team's overall passing ability. It won't be a problem this year, Abraham said. "It's improved 100 percent," he said. "Four of t h e p l a y e r s we brought in are all good passers." Three junior college transfers figure to help the Crusaders immediately: 510 junior outside hitter Jennifer Frost,

from Mott CC and Saginaw; 5-8 junior s e t t e r Natalie Sayre, from Grand Rapids CC; and 5-7 sophomore outside hitter Elizabeth Frecsko, from Laredo (Texas) CC. According to Abraham, Sayre was "one of the top players in her region." She will challenge Wind for playing time at setter. "She's still developing, but she's quick," said Abraham. "She just has to learn our players and get comfortable with our plays." Frost is left-handed and should help fill the vacancy created by Uballe's graduation. An all-conference and all-

DCI, champions of the Livonia Collegiate Division of the Adray Metro Baseball Association, finished the summer 23-11 overall and 2-2 in the AAABA nationals. Right-hander Grant Smith, pitched seven scoreless innings to keep DCI off the scoreboard. He scattered four hits and five walks before giving way to left-hander Dustin Atkins, who pitched a scoreless e i g h t h , followed by right-hander Mike McGirr, who earned the save in the ninth. The t h r e e pitchers, however, combined for just four strikeouts. "We hit balls right at guys," DCI manager Mike George said.

excitement of fishing, I chartered a fishing trip on Lake St. Clair with Neptune Charters and Capt. Roger Doyle a b o a r d t h e 27-foot Little Dutch II. Marty, the sports editor for the Birmingham and Southfield editions of the Observer & Eccentric Newspapers, and J i m Toth, sports editor for the Rochester a n d Troy e d i t i o n s , j o i n e d m y brother-in-law Don Wrathell, our good friend Jeff Essenberg and myself on a r e c e n t a f t e r n o o n smallmouth charter on the bassinfested waters of Lake St. Clair. I'm a firm believer t h a t to really understand a sport you have to be a participant. Heck, I went golfing once, shot a 70-sometJhing if I remember correctly. Had a pretty good time too, until I lost my l a s t ball on t h e n i n t h and final hole. As veteran sports editors I'd decided long ago that Marty and Jim, a couple experienced golf

The prize;

Sports editors Marty Budher (left) and Jim Toth proudly display their catches. a n d softball aficionados, were overdue to experience the thrill of doing b a t t l e w i t h a f e i s t y , bodacious bass. We met at the lake, and after waiting out a passing thunderstorm motored out onto Anchor Bay in anticipation of some of the hottest smallmouth bass fishing in the world. Drifting over weedy clumps in seven to 10 feet of water, it didn't t a k e long for the action to

begin. J i m took "first-fish" honors (and a couple bucks from the r e s t of t h e crew, I might add) wh e n a plump 16-inch smallie inhaled the golden shiner he was offering as bait. During the next four hours the action bounced back and f o r t h between good and great. Using eight-pound t e s t monofilament our l i n e s w e r e r i g g e d w i t h a three-way swivel, a drop sinker

on a 12-inch leader, and a No. 8 hook on a n 18-inch leader. With such a presentation, it's was easy to catch a smorgasbord of f i s h . S e v e r a l mombo r o c k b a s s came to t h e boat a s well a s a half-dozen yellow perch. But the smallmouth are what made the trip. "Holy cow, this thing is really pulling hard," exclaimed Marty, seconds before a feisty 18-incher exploded out of the water like a bronze missile. We m a n a g e d to land over 20 fish including a huge, 211/2-inch smallie, which qualified Jeff for a Master Angler patch - Master Angler, 21-inch smallmouth. The trip came to an end as the s u n b e g a n to f a d e . As we motored back into the harbor the s m i l e s on t h e faces of all t h e anglers told the story. "This is great," J i m said. "Ill definitely do it again." I think they're hooked!

Caught something: Quite an experiencej! I may not be the most daring person, but shy or afraid "* have rarely been a p a r t of ^ my vocabulary. I ' v e b e e n f o r t u n a t e to experience quite a bit in my 40-plus years, but one t h a t h a d e l u d e d me u n t i l v e r y recently was an activity that nearly everyone has tried at JIM TOTH least once in their lifetime. Fishing! Now the closest I ever got to fishing, before this unforgettable experience, was ordering the fisherman's platter at my favorite seafood restaurant or purchasing some salmon or orange roughy at the neighborhood grocery store. Well, I finally wound up on one end of the pole as myself, co-worker M a r t y B u d n e r , O&E outdoors w r i t e r Bill P a r k e r and his f r i e n d s Jeff E s s e n b e r g and Don W r a t h e l l journeyed out on a four-hour excursion on the waters of Lake St. Clair. Now, it wasn't exactly the S.S. Minnow and there were ,no movie stars or millionaires aboard, but I did get the feeling that any one of us could handle the role of Gilligan. The adventure began mid-afternoon with Marty and I needing a fishing license. Heading out to a friendly Meijer, the two of us dug deep into our wallets to come up with the

necessary funds to purchase a whopping oneday license. The person behind the register asked if we wanted one for the entire year, but I figured if I hadn't done this in 40 years, the chances of doing it again anytime soon were pretty remote. Well, off we went to Anchor Bay to climb aboard commander, er cruise director, better make that Neptune Charters skipper Roger Doyle's Little Dutch II. The trip was delayed for about an hour - if only the Skipper and Gilligan would have done t h e s a m e - w h i l e i n t e n s e t h u n d e r storms moved out of the area. Once we ventured out, the seven-mile cruise was refreshing. With Roger closing in on the site where the "fish were really biting" earlier in the day on a p r e v i o u s c h a r t e r , h e p r o m p t l y cut the engines and it was time for us to "fish on." "Grab a pole" were the initial instructions, followed closely by "bait the hooks," "Bait the what? And with what?" were a coifele responses. Little minnows was the eventual answer. After struggling with the little guy and sending him off to catch me a - er, marlin - a little wager was initiated on who would catch thefirstfish. Now we're talking, a little initiative to catch a fish. My biggest concern was when

would I know I even had a catcft? "The bend a t t h e end of the pole," other voices chimed in. "When you see that, give it a little tug." "Aye, aye," I said. Five, 10, 20, 30 minutes, maybe an eternity, passed by before any of us felt t h a t "tug." But when we did, it was yours truly reeling in a line. Wow! How exciting! My first fish! What could be on the other end? "Smallmouth bass," someone quipped. "Hey, way to go. Good job," the rest of the crew chimed in. Well, as quickly a s I thought I was king, I turned back to feeling like a pauper w h e n that prize catch, at least for me, was thrown back into the water. "Too small and, by the way, the eating isn't so good," were t h e words I remembered as the little guy was swimming away. All of a sudden, this wasn't too much fun. But our enjoyment and fortunes did t u r n around as we combined to snare some perch and larger smallmouth bass. Time raced by, and I'm sure so did the fish, as darkness was descending on t h e open waters. What was once w e e k s of a n t i c i p a t i o n w a s a b o u t to become a memory. A very good m e m o r y and one I hope to relive sometime soon.

NATURE NOTES

RECREATION Wiffle Ball is a hit with backyard enthusiasts h a t s t a r t e d as a n a m u s i n g recreational activity played in my b a c k yard d u r i n g m y son's first birthday party, h a s become a serious athletic event. After playing j u s t a few innings, we all discovered w h a t a blast t h e g a m e of Wiffle Ball truly is, even though most of u s are in our mid-20s. The sound and feel of a plastic bat s m a s h i n g the ball is oh so CHAD sweet. LOCKWOOD Shortly after our first exhibition game, rules were established and a league was formed. We call it the H a r t l a n d Wiffle Ball League. Currently there are 10 members w h o each h a v e their own "team." Each member of the league chose a Major League franchise to represent and were then encouraged to purchase a ball cap of their t e a m . GUEST COLUMNIST

TIM NOWICKI

Admire large adult insects before they die ost people are familiar with large insects like mantids, grasshoppers, crickets and walking sticks, b u t we only become a w a r e of their presence in late summer a n d fall. These insects are too small most of t h e s u m m e r to be recognized. Finally, about now, they a r e big enough for u s to notice them. M a n t i d s are very recognizable insects. Those large forelegs are modified for catching other insects. Their large size, u p to about 4 inches, allows t h e m to catch a wide variety of insects. This is w h e n female m a n t i d s lay their egg masses on any kind of convenient object. Adults will only live until it gets cold. Their egg mass survive t h e winter. I n spring, tiny m a n t i d s emerge with voracious appetites and s t a r t growing. By l a t e summer, those t h a t survived t h e summer are big enough to spot in your garden. I've enjoyed some in our raspberry bushes, in fields a n d even on my screen door. Michigan sports two species of mantids, both introduced from Europe. Some individuals are green, while others are brown. Color doesn't designate species or sex. It's j u s t a variation. One study discovered t h a t green individuals were seen twice a s often a s brown individuals. Not too distantly related to the m a n t i d s a r e the walking sticks. Probably as recognizable as the praying mantis, walking sticks look like their name. Their long, narrow legs a n d body resemble twigs. North American walking sticks are small compared to tropical species t h a t reach lengths of 10-12 inches. Only four species are found in t h e G r e a t Lakes region. They reach lengths of 4-5 inches. Unlike the praying mantis, walking sticks are strictly p l a n t eaters. In l a t e s u m m e r they are often a t t h e tops of trees eating leaves. Young walking sticks emerge from eggs laid by adults, which were allowed to drop to t h e ground t h e previous summer. Some eggs m a y not h a t c h until t h e second s u m m e r a f t e r being laid. Depending on when t h e eggs hatch, w e a t h e r conditions and food availability, it m a y t a k e u p to two years for t h e adults to m a t u r e . Now is the time w h e n walking sticks a r e large enough for us to notice. Periodically these masters of camouflage get dislodged from their treetop hideout and come down w h e r e we can see. I n spring, the spring field cricket can be seen as a n adult size black cricket, b u t in fall, the fall field cricket is the large black cricket chirping in the backyard. The fall field cricket h a s been developing from eggs t h a t hatched in spring. Tiny fall field crickets are too small to notice until they m a t u r e and s t a r t to sing. They h a v e always been around, j u s t not showy enough to be detected. A similar development occurs in the short-horned grasshoppers. They, too, hatch from eggs in spring t h a t were buried last fall. Unless you get down into the field grasses and look carefully, or sweep t h e grasses with a n insect net, these developing grasshoppers go unnoticed. In late sumiyier however, walk t h e trail in a field and you will likely flush colorful winged grasshoppers in front of you several times. At first glance they resemble a butterfly, but closer examination reveals they are grasshoppers. The short life of t h e s e insects t h r o u g h t h e w a r m m o n t h s culmin a t e s in m a t i n g and insuring the species will survive another year. Enjoy t h e large a d u l t s before they die. Tom Nowicki is a naturalist at Independence Oaks park in Oakland County.

One against another Each scheduled game pits one t eam against another. The tea m scheduled to play is led by a n "owner" who serves as the captain and pitcher of t h a t game. To fill out the rosters, all other players become free agents for the day, and are picked alternately to m a k e t h e t e a m s complete. Each squad is composed of three to five players. Wiffle Ball is played j u s t like baseball except for a few minor differences. Throwing t h e ball a t r u n n e r s in a n attempt to get them out is legal. A target t h r e e feet behind home plate is t h e strike zone, which m a k e s it easy to judge balls and strikes. It is a 3-foot by 4-foot piece of plywood with a hole cut out 12 inches from t h e bottom. The hole is 22 inches wide and 30 inches tall. Any ball t h a t goes through the hole is a strike. The pitcher can pitch a s f a s t or a s slow a s he chooses and can deliver it anyway he desires. Because of t h e eight slotted holes on one side of t h e ball, anyone can throw wicked sliders or sick curveballs. Other pitches used are t h e sinker and the feared riser.

«•••• more realistic feel, an eight-foot section in left field known as the "Green Monster" was built out of lattice skirting. Shortly after t h a t , I replaced the orange snow fence t h a t originally stood as the outfield wall, w i t h nine sheets of green-painted plywood to create a replica of Boston's Fenway Park. I also constructed a scoreboard, complete with each team's logo.

Falling in love Everyone in our league h a s fallen in love with the game of Wiffle Ball. The guys love the competition and t r y to see who can rack u p t h e highest stats, which are compiled and calculated on a n Excel spreadsheet. The girls like it because it gives t h e m a chance to get together a n d share some laughs. I never would have guessed thata former childhood pastime would be so much f u n .

Bowling centers exchanging wooden lanes for synthetics D iamonds are TEN PIN forever. EveryALLEY thing else has to be replaced a t some time. That is certainly the case for our good old bowling lanes. Wood wears out with time and use. Then AL every two y e a r s or so, HARRISON the wooden lanes require resurfacing, a n arduous process t h a t involves much sanding, and more loss of surface. Some of the wood lanes we are still bowling on have been in service for 40 or more years. There comes a time when they are no longer serviceable, and h e r e comes Brunswick or AMF w i t h their new high-tech permanent lanes. As J i m Hamlin, the proprietor of Count r y Lanes in Farmington noted, his resurfacing m a n told h i m maybe five more years. Hamlin would t h e n be faced with the choice of wood lane replacements or synthetics, such as Brunswick's Anvilanes. "My resurfacing m a n is retiring," says Hamlin. "There are very few left who can do the job well." The logical choice is synthetic lanes, for they require little if any maintenance. The downside of synthetic lanes is the greater cost. Once in, however, the yearly maintenance is almost nil. Ken Lauterbach, the Brunswick sales representative, said there are 30 houses in this a r e a t h a t have already installed the new Anvi-

Pass the shovel handle We use several different b a t s in our league. Most models are derived from the original skinny, yellow Wiffle Ball bat. To juice up our bats we have added w a t e r , foam insulation, and duct tape. Also, longer b a t s h a v e been constructed by cutting the handles off t h e original bats and inserting old shovel h a n d l e s or broomsticks.

There are several more scheduled for this year. And, of course, AMF also h a s its version in some spots including Town and Country Lanes in Westland. Some of the bowling centers in and around Observerland with Anvilanes are: Wayne Bowl, Mayflower Lanes (Redford), Cherry Hill Lanes (Dearborn Heights), 300 Bowl (Waterford), P l u m Hollow Lanes (Southfield), Westland Bowl, Hartfield lanes (Berkley), Cherry Hill North (Clarkston) and t h e 74 lanes at Thunderbowl in Allen P a r k . As a n added feature, Anvilanes can be installed with a "glow" feat u r e , to be used in conjunction with Cosmic Bowling, so t h e lanes will glow in a variety of incandescent colors d u r i n g these special events. According to Lauterbach, "The l a n e m a r k i n g s in these lanes m a k e t a r g e t i n g easier, and overall, the ball reaction is a lot more consistent t h a n w i t h ordinary wood. The approaches are also much smoother and less likely to cause any sticking at the line." The legendary J o h n n y Petraglia says, "Downlane markings provide

better tracking points for bowlers of all skill levels. High-performance players can m e a s u r e break and adjust to changing oil conditions. Intermediate bowlers can find a better road m a p to the strike zone and a better p a t h to spare conversions. And beginners can aim a t bowling zones created by t h e distinct board lines (a great t r a i n i n g tool)." The bowling industry adopted t h e aiming system of arrows a n d dots in 1937. Now in this new century, it is s t a r t i n g to provide a better system for aiming a n d tracking t h e shots. If you are in a house w i t h wooden lanes, the lanes are probably still in good condition and they m a y still go several years before replacement is necessary. W h e n t h a t time comes, you can be fairly certain t h a t the new surfaces will be t h e synthetic lanes, regardless of which m a n u f a c t u r e r supplies and installs them. If you are a proprietor, t h e bottom line is all-important to consider, and wh e n all is said and done, over the long term, you should look into synthetic lanes. With the minimal cost of upkeep, you will be come out ahead of the game - and so will your bowlers.

Like any coach in any sport, w hen Madonna University volleyball coach Jerry Abraham says, "I'm very excited about this group here," you're immediate reaction is t h a t it must be t a k e n for what it is: a slight overdose of preseason optimism. Then you start examining what he's got coming back. Yeah, there are losses. But those additions —* and suddenly Tera Morrill Amanda Suder Kate LeBlanc you realize t h a t even when Abraham former Franklin star Salem defensive ace Stevenson middle hitter says, "I think we're a better team than last year. We're more seasoned, more confident* — well, he may indeed be snowballing you, but not with an overabundance of optimism. He may be downplaying the situation. Make no mistake. The Crusaders are loaded. As for the reliability of sources, with Abraham — the only volleyball coach in Madonna's history — 40-win seasons are almost expected. He called 1999 "one of my worst seasons." Well record-wise, maybe it was. After all, the Lady Crusaders were "only" 2914 overall. And they did have to share the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference crown with Cornerstone College, both posting 11-1 records.

T h e n late in t h e season f r e s h m a n setter Jen Wing left the team, wreaking more havoc. Still, the C r u s a d e r s played on, and played well. Those kinds of problems shouldn't reoccur this season. The strong recruiting class A b r a h a m has delivered should see to that. But first the leaders: Three seniors who have a total of eight starting seasons between them.

During the next four hours the action bounced back and f o r t h between good and great. Using eight-pound t e s t monofilament our lines were rigged with a three-way swivel, a drop sinker

NATURE NOTES

RECREATION Wiffle Ball is a hit with backyard enthusiasts h a t started a s a n a m u s i n g recreational activity played in W W my back yard during my son's first birthday party, h a s become a serious athletic event. After playing j u s t a few innings, we all discovered w h a t a blast t h e game of Wiffle Ball truly is, even though most of us are in our mid-20s. The sound and feel of a plastic b a t smashing the ball is oh so CHAD sweet. LOCKWOOD Shortly a f t e r our first exhibition game, rules were established and a league was formed. We call it the H a r t l a n d Wiffle Ball League. Currently t h e r e a r e 10 members who each have their own "team." Each member of t h e league chose a Major League franchise to represent and were then encouraged to purchase a ball cap of their team. GUEST COLUMNIST

TIM NOWICKI

Admire large adult insects before they die ost people are familiar w i t h large insects like m a n t i d s , grasshoppers, crickets and walking sticks, b u t we only become aware of their presence in late summer and fall. These insects are too small most of the s u m m e r to be recognized. Finally, about now, they are big enough for us to notice them. Mantids are very recognizable insects. Those large forelegs are modified for catching other insects. Their large size, u p to about 4 inches, allows t h e m to catch a wide variety of insects. This is when female m a n t i d s lay their egg masses on a n y kind of convenient object. Adults will only live until it gets cold. Their egg m a s s survive t h e winter. In spring, tiny m a n t i d s emerge with voracious appetites and s t a r t growing. By late summer, those t h a t survived the s u m m e r are big enough to spot in your garden. I've enjoyed some in our raspberry bushes, in fields and even on my screen door. Michigan sports two species of mantids, both introduced from Europe. Some individuals are green, while others are brown. Color doesn't designate species or sex. It's j u s t a variation. One s t u d y discovered t h a t green individuals were seen twice as often a s brown individuals. Not too distantly related to t h e mantids a r e the walking sticks. Probably as recognizable as the praying mantis, walking sticks look like their name. Their long, n a r r o w legs and body resemble twigs. N o r t h American walking sticks are small compared to tropical species t h a t reach lengths of 10-12 inches.. Only four species a r e found in the Great Lakes region. They r e a c h lengths of 4-5 inches. Unlike t h e praying mantis, walking sticks are strictly p l a n t eaters. In late s u m m e r they a r e often a t the tops of trees eating leaves. Young walking sticks emerge from eggs laid by adults, which were allowed to drop to t h e ground the previous summer. Some eggs m a y not h a t c h u n t i l the second summer a f t e r being laid. Depending on when t h e eggs h a t c h , w e a t h e r conditions a n d food availability, it may t a k e u p to two y e a r s for the adults to m a t u r e . Now is the time w h e n walking sticks are large enough for u s to notice. Periodically t h e s e m a s t e r s of camouflage get dislodged from their treetop hideout and come down where we can see. In spring, the spring field cricket can be seen as a n adult size black cricket, b u t in fall, t h e fall field cricket is the large black cricket chirping in the backyard. The fall field cricket h a s been developing from eggs t h a t h a t c h e d in spring. Tiny fall field crickets a r e too small to notice until they m a t u r e a n d s t a r t to sing. They have always been around, j u s t not showy enough to be detected. A similar development occurs in the short-horned grasshoppers. They, too, h a t c h from eggs in spring t h a t were buried last fall. Unless you get down into t h e field grasses and look carefully, or sweep the grasses w i t h a n insect net, these developing grasshoppers go unnoticed. In late s u m m e r however, w a l k the trail in a field and you will likely flush colorful winged grasshoppers in front of you several times. At first glance they resemble a butterfly, but closer examination reveals they are grasshoppers. The short life of these insects through t h e w a r m m o n t h s culmin a t e s in m a t i n g and i n s u r i n g t h e species will survive a n o t h e r year. Enjoy the large adults before they die. Tom Nowicki is a naturalist at Independence Oaks park in Oakland County.

One against another Each scheduled game pits one t eam against another. The t e a m scheduled to play is led by a n "owner" who serves a s t h e captain and pitcher of t h a t game. To fill out the rosters, all other players become free agents for the day, a n d are picked alternately to m a k e the t e a m s complete. Each squad is composed of three to five players. Wiffle Ball is played j u s t like baseball except for a few minor differences. Throwing t h e ball at r u n n e r s in an a t t e m p t to get them out is legal. A target t h r e e feet behind home plate is the strike zone, which m a k e s it easy to judge balls and strikes. It is a 3-foot by 4-foot piece of plywood with a hole cut out 12 inches from t h e bottom. The hole is 22 inches wide and 30 inches tall. Any ball t h a t goes through the hole is a strike. The pitcher can pitch as f a s t or as slow as he chooses and can deliver it anyway he desires. Because of the eight slotted holes on one side of the ball, anyone can throw wicked sliders or sick curveballs. Other pitches used are t h e sinker and the feared riser.

more realistic feel, a n eight-foot section in left field known as t h e "Green Monster" was built out of lattice skirting. Shortly after that, I replaced the orange snow fence t h a t originally stood as t h e outfield wall, with nine sheets of green-painted plywood to create a replica of Boston's F e n w a y P a r k . I also constructed a scoreboard, complete w i t h each team's logo.

Falling in love Everyone in our league h a s fallen in love with the game of Wiffle Ball. The guys love the competition and try to see who can rack u p the highest stats, which are compiled and calculated on a n Excel spreadsheet. The girls like it because it gives t h e m a chance to get together and s h a r e some laughs. I never would have guessed t h a t a former childhood pastime would be so much f u n .

Bowling centers exchanging wooden lanes for synthetics D

iamonds are forever. Everything else h a s to be replaced a t some time. That is certainly the case for our good old bowling lanes. Wood w e a r s out with time and use. Then every two years or so, AL HARRISON the wooden lanes require resurfacing, a n arduous process t h a t involves much sanding, and more loss of surface. Some of t h e wood lanes we are still bowling on have been in service for 40 or more years. There comes a time w hen they are no longer serviceable, and h e r e comes Brunswick or AMF with their new high-tech permanent lanes. As J i m Hamlin, t h e proprietor of Count r y Lanes in Farmington ntited, his resurfacing m a n told h i m maybe five more years. Hamlin would t h e n be faced with t h e choice of wood lane replacements or synthetics, such as Brunswick's Anvilanes. "My resurfacing m a n is retiring," says Hamlin. "There are very few left who can do the job well." The logical choice is synthetic lanes, for they require little if any maintenance. The downside of synthetic lanes is the greater cost. Once in, however, t h e yearly maintenance is almost nil. Ken Lauterbach, the Brunswick sales representative, said there are 30 houses in this a r e a t h a t have already installed t h e new AnviTEN PIN ALLEY

Pass the shovel handle We use several different bats in bur league. Most models are derived from the original skinny, yellow Wiffle Ball bat. To juice up our bats we have added water, foam insulation, and duct tape. Also, longer bats h a v e been constructed by cutting the handles off the original bats and inserting old shovel h a n d l e s or broomsticks. We t h e n tape the whole bat back up, which gives the b a t t e r a better chance of blasting a home run.

T h e r e are several more scheduled for t h i s year. And, of course, AMF also h a s its version in some spots including Town and Country Lanes in Westland. Some of the bowling centers in and around Observerland with Anvilanes are: Wayne Bowl, Mayflower L a n e s (Redford), Cherry Hill Lanes (Dearborn Heights), 300 Bowl (Waterford), P l u m Hollow Lanes (Southfield), Westland Bowl, Hartfield lanes (Berkley), Cherry Hill North (Clarkston) and the 74 lanes a t Thunderbowl in Allen P a r k . As a n added feature, Anvilanes can be installed with a "glow" feature, to be used in conjunction w i t h Cosmic Bowling, so t h e lanes will glow in a variety of incandescent colors d u r i n g these special events. According to Lauterbach, "The lane markings in these lanes m a k e targeting easier, and overall, the ball reaction is a lot more consistent t h a n with ordinary wood. The approaches are also much smoother and less likely to cause a n y sticking a t the line." The legendary J o h n n y Petraglia says, "Downlane m a r k i n g s provide

better tracking points for bowlers of all skill levels. High-performance players can measure break and a d j u s t to changing oil conditions. I n t e r m e d i a t e bowlers can find a better road m a p to the strike zone and a better p a t h to spare conversions. And beginners can aim at bowling zones created by the distinct board lines (a great t r a i n i n g tool)." The bowling industry adopted the aiming system of arrows and dots in 1937. Now in this new century, it is s t a r t i n g to provide a better system for aiming and tracking t h e shots. If you are in a house with wooden lanes, t h e lanes are probably still in good condition and they m a y still go several years before replacement is necessary. When t h a t time comes, you can be fairly certain t h a t the new surfaces will be the synthetic lanes, regardless of which m a n u f a c t u r e r supplies a n d installs them. If you a r e a proprietor, t h e bottom line is all-important to consider, and w h e n all is said and done, over the long term, you should look into synthetic lanes. With the minimal cost of upkeep, you will be come out ahead of the g a m e - and so will your bowlers.

For the tournament, Wechter, the left fielder, led the way with a .545 batting average (6-for-ll with six walks). Hynes hit .500 (7-for-14), while Watchowski had two homers and five RBI.

Andrezjak came through with a two-run homer on a 2-0 pitch in the seventh, his first hit of the tourney. Reliever Doug Sherry was the losing pitcher, allowing four runs (two earned) on seven hits.

region player at Mott, "she gives us a n o t h e r offensive option," Abraham said. And Frecsko is a "good all-around player" with strong a t h l e t i c a b i l i t i e s who could develop into a major contributor. Among the freshmen recruits, two that should be instant contributors are Amanda Suder, a 5-6 outside hitter from Plymouth Salem, and 5-10 middle hitter Kate LeBlanc, f r o m Livonia Stevenson. Suder was easily the best player on a Salem squad that advanced to the Division I quarterfinals.

A t h i r d all-Observer player recruited by Abraham, 5-11 outside h i t t e r Tera Morrill, from Livonia Franklin, injured her knee last spring and is going through rehabilitation. That has progressed faster than anticipated, however, and she could conceivably play this season. . The one freshmen recruit coming from outside Observerland is 5-6 outside hitter Denise Gallagher, from Honolulu. Abraham said she's "very experienced" and, like her freshmen counterparts, she could be a vital factor before season's end.

"She was one of the area's best players," said Abraham. "She'll c o n t r i b u t e i m m e d i a t e l y on defense. She fits r i g h t in our style." As for LeBlanc, Abraham said, "I knew she'd be a good player,

you think making money is risky.

When a coach is questioned about possible weaknesses and his reply is "We don't have a lot of experienced depth at the outside hitter spots. And there's not a lot of size. It's not a weakness, it's just an area that needs to be addressed" — well, that hardly rates as a problem. Yes, Cornerstone is still a concern, but unless something weird h a p p e n s , it seems t h a t come November, Madonna is a better bet to be atop the WHAC than Bush is to be atop the polls. The Crusaders have their annual alumni match at 7 p.m. Thursday at Madonna. They open their season Aug. 25-26 at the Fort Lewis Skyhawk Invitational in Durango, Colo.

Call me an amateur, it's a compliment

A

mateur - it's not something most of us aspire to be. We want to be professionals, part of the major leagues, not the minors. But David Wagner, associate professor of music at Madonna University in Livonia, and director of the Madonna University Chorale, recalls a time when calling someone an "amateur" was a compliment. "In the 18th century amateurs were regarded with respect," said Wagner. "To be an amateur meant that you did something because you loved it, not to get paid." When he put it like that, I wasn't afraid to admit that I was an amateur clarinet-player who used to belong to a community band and sometimes sang in my church choir.

W W . . .

Y

Friends While Wagner, his wife Penny, and Madonna University Chorale members Karen Buddenborg and Evelyn Wojtkowiak, talked with me about their recent trip to Ireland, and the thrill of singing in cathedrals, I listened longingly. Brought together by their love of music, they've become friends and are looking forward to beginning rehearsals 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5. They made me realize just how much I miss playing my clarinet and singing with a choir. I'm not a diva, nor am I ready for the concert stage, but I do love music and miss being part of a community band or choir. Buddenborg has been a member of the Livonia Civic and Schoolcraft choirs. She joined the Madonna University Chorale two years ago because she wanted to sing sacred and classical works.

Learning "I'm learning the music of great, famous composers," she said. "David Wagner has a keen sense of music. He stops during rehearsal and explains the music." The opportunity to learn new things, meet people who share your interests and exercise your talents, are all reasons people like Buddenborg and Wojtkowiak participate in local performing arts groups. They're professionals who honor their commitment to attend weekly rehearsals and participate in concerts and other special events. They're busy people who don't make excuses for not having time to participate in a group, they just do it. "The great thing about music-making is that no one sits on the bench," said Wagner. "You get to play all the time." You'll have to audition to get into the Madonna University Chorale, but Wagner assures "it's no big deal." For more information, call (734).432-5708.

jatricia Nouhan hopes visitors to 'her first-ever fine arts festival will feel like they're stepping into a gallery where artists, not intimidation, greet them. Nouhan, a Brighton photographer and former Redford resident, came up witn the idea for the SnapOne Fine Arts Festival after participating in area art fairs. "When I talked to several artists they did not want crafts and country next to fine arts," said Nouhan. "This is higher end art work. The 50 exhibitors fit that fine art category." Among those exhibiting in the fine arts festival in Novi this weekend are Art Leaders Gallery in West Bloomfield, Canton wildlife photographer Ted Nelson, Observer & Eccentric photography columnist Monte Nagler of Farmington Hills, Livonia artist Patrick Freer, and Brother Vincent Reyes, a photographer and pastoral director of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit. Nouhan will offer her wildlife and nature photographs shot on jaunts to Kensington Metropark and Alaska. There will also be a mixture of fine crafts including glass, sculptured handbags, jewelry, metal art and hand dyed silk scarves. Freer creates abstract paintings by dripping acrylics and enamels from a stick. "Sim Chic" is a kind of a psychedelic flashback to the late 60s and early 70s with its scorching yellow and red sun hovering above the blue waves of the ocean. "I love making things pleasing to the eye and try to be innovative by using different techniques like drip painting," said Freer who listens to classical and jazz music while painting.

with a music degree. A full-time musician, Freer plays Thursday-Saturday evenings at Farwell and Friends Restaurant & Lounge in Westland. Nouhan invited Freer to show his work at the SnapOne Fine Arts Festival after seeing it at the Livonia Arts Festival at Greenmead Historical Village in June. In 1999 the Livonia Arts Commission sponsored a one-man show of his work at Livonia City Hall. Freer will bring about 40 paintings and collages, matted and framed, to the show.

Symphony hits high note with new season music and a march, the Entrance of the Gladiators, which is usually played at circuses," said Karoub. "People usually bring their lawn chairs and there's usually a large crowd. We have a great time." The free concert is a prelude to the orchestra's new season, which opens Saturday, Nov. 4 with an all-American concert. Besides featuring the concertos and symphonies of Scandinavian and French composers, the orchestra will add a second chamber concert to its new season due to a sellout of a similar program held last year.

It's hard to believe, but there are only two concerts left in the Livonia Arts Commission's Music Under the Stars series. In just a few weeks, the Livonia Symphony, and other local symphonies, will begin holding fund-raisers and opening their new seasons. On Thursday, you can hear the Livonia Symphony Orchestra perform for free at their annual Music Under the Stars program. After hearing them, you might decide to purchase season tickets. Conductor Volodymyr Schesiuk and Carl Karoub will share the podium to lead what Schesiuk refers to as "park music." The program is similar to the music he conducted in Ukrainian parks and concert halls before immigrating to the U.S. in 1991.

All American program "It's pop American and light classical music from Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Lady and Bizet's Carmen Suite to Fiddler on the Roof" said Schesiuk. "The Gypsy Baron Overture by Strauss is little known here but popular with European audiences. We close with Stars and Stripes Forever. Last year so many people were there. It's a very nice feeling when so many people come."

A highlight of the 2000-2001 season is sure to be the return of the young Livonia pianist Joshua Cullen to the intimate auditorium at the Livonia Civic Center Library. "We've got a great season planned," said Livonia Symphony President Robert Bennett. "The diversity of the music is very broadranging but very appealing. We're going to break precedence and put on The Nutcracker two years in a row. And we've invited pianist Joshua Cullen back again at another stage in his career. He first performed with the orchestra when he was eight years old. He's now 16 and a student at the University of Michigan School of Music."

Not content to do s o m e t h i n g for h e r s e l f a n d other artists simply by holding the festival, Nouhan's giving $1 from every admission ticket sold to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. "Everybody needs to give back to t h e c o m m u n i t y by h e l p i n g needy organizations t h a t help people," said Nouhan. "My philosophy is t h a t if I've h e l p e d other people I want them to turn around and help someone else if they want to thank me." Brother Vincent Reyes couldn't be happier about Nouhan's giving spirit. It's a sacredness in people and places t h a t he looks for w h e n c o m p o s i n g photographs. As pastoral director of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, Brother Reyes spends most of his day "with people who struggle to survive." He came from a poor family in Indiana but never realized it until he took a sociology class in college. As long as he "had a roof over h i s h e a d , his father, mother and siblings," he was rich. He brings this philosophy to both his position at the soup kitchen and his photography. "What constitutes the sacred?" asked Brother Reyes, a photographer for nearly 40 years. "I've b e e n e v e r y w h e r e f r o m Stonehenge to photographing a child in a c h u r c h in H o n d u r a s a n d M o t h e r T h e r e s a . T h e y ' r e all sacred. It's a way of looking at the world. It's not fashionable to see the world as sacred but I'm a Franciscan and follow the teachings of the founder, St. Francis of Assisi, who fell in love with t h e Creator. I see t h i n g s t h a t touch me. Sometimes I w a l k through the woods and see beautiful things and other times all I see are ticks. That's why I like f o c u s i n g on t h e i n t e r a c t i o n between people." Brother Reyes' path as a Capuchin Friar has brought him into contact with people in all areas of life.

i m p o r t a n t . Last year's event added nearly $16,000 to the coff e r s . T h e goal for t h i s y e a r is $25,000. "It's one of our m a j o r f u n d r a i s e r s b u t it's also a w a y of bringing a fun night to the community with the orchestra," said Bennett. "We're going to incorpor a t e the mall's merry-go-round into the night's festivities. What I say is, support your orchestra and have a great time doing it." Chairperson Pat Sari promises supporters will not only have fun b u t p l e a s e their p a l a t e s while sampling food from more than 25 r e s t a u r a n t s , bakeries and markets from around the area. A s i l e n t a u c t i o n a n d r a f f l e will introduce a little suspense to the evening. "This is the kickoff for our season," said Sari. "It's the second year in the new location and it's the best location we've ever had. The mall was very supportive a n d we received d o n a t i o n s of items from them and t h e businesses, and some of t h e restaur a n t s participated. In the past, seating has been a problem, but in t h e m a l l ' s new food court, there's more t h a n enough. And there's monitors and speakers all around the dining room. It's going to be fun."

For Your Eyes

Paper and denim are perfect fit

Thick and long:

Individually applied human hair eye lashes enhance the right eye. The eye at left sports only its own natural lashes.

C

rane & Compan y will let you do something that Lee, Levi's and Calvin Klein won't — write all over their blue jeans. Crane's, a Massachusetts stationery firm, has introduced a line of pape£ products made from scraps of old denim. The collection of notes and composition books, available a t Crane's in The Somerset Collection, Troy, traces its roots to the early 1800s when Zenas Crane gathered cotton and linen rags for his paper mill. Manufacturers introduced trees into the paper-making process after the Civil War, but Crane's continued to make paper from fabric. It uses cotton denim trims from U.S. clothing manufacturers for its new Blue Denim paper, diverting the material from landfills into the paper-making process. That's t h e same idea behind Crane's Old Money collection of recycled greenbacks. "The idea was to recycle the notes taken out of circulation," explained Julie Westervelt, public relations for Crane & Company. "They didn't even have to de-ink it." The stationery sports a distinctive light green color. Westervelt said fabric-based paper is known for its strength. "It's the reason why you can leave a dollar in your pocket and let it go through the wash. It comes out in one piece." Crane's manufactures. 140 styles of writing paper and note cards, envelopes and journals. Designs range from elegant to classic to whimsical. Westervelt said many people prefer a pen to a word processor or e-mail for some correspondence. "They are taking the time to write meaningful notes that mean something more than an e-mail to people. It .means a lot for someone to take the time to do that, to drop it in the mail." Westervelt said e-mail inadvertently may help sales of note cards as people become accustomed to e-mail style and pen shorter, more succinct letters. They also want a more distinctive, colorful format than the computer-generated e-mail screen. "People want something different," Westervelt said. Old Money and Blue Denim are part of Crane's casual stationery line. "It's used for more of a n every day kind of thing, not necessarily for a special occasion, but still with a unique twist." The Old Money collection includes notes and envelopes, composition and computation books, as well as personal journals for gardening, travel, fitness and the home.

Retailers statewide The Michigan Retailers Association Board of Directors re-elected several members to three-year terms. They are: • Larry Mullins owns Brandon Tire & Battery in Ortonville. • Peter Sobelton is owner-operator of Sundries Plus in Troy. • Joseph McCurry is district general manager for Sears, Roebuck and Co. • J a n Hayhow, president and general manager of Lansing-based Michigania, Inc.

Fall trends Faux snakeskin prints and leather will be # "everywhere" in fashion this fall, according to Jacobson's. It also predicts t h a t children will wear cargo shorts, check woven shirts, d a r k denim, gypsy-inspired ponchos and zip-off sleeves and pant legs. Jacobson's top fashion picks for its Ms. J, junior department, are: • C o n s e r v a t i v e p r i n t s i n wild styles. • W e s t e r n d r e s s i n g w i t h fringe, cowboy boots and hats. • 1 9 7 0 s look w i t h j u m p s u i t s , charmeuse blouses and skirts in geometric prints. • Holiday and eveningwear include tanks, halters and backless sweaters d r e s s e d u p with studding, sequins, and laces.

STAFF W R I T E R

Chevelle Downs went 31 years without wearing false eyelashes. But a stint in a salon last year opened her eyes on beauty trends and she has worn — and sold — the lash enhancements ever since. "A friend of mine always w e a r s lashes and she decided to open a salon. I worked with h e r for a while," Downs explained. Seeing b u s i n e s s potential in t h e b e a u t y t r e n d , Downs learned to apply lashes, scouted out competition and opened her own salon last month. "If you'd said to me a year ago that I'd own a lash shop in Northland Mall, I'd never ever have believed you," Downs said, laughing. "But the need is there and we try to fill it.

"I took a look a t my m a i n competition. They have clients that sit and wait two to three hours for service. The difference between them and us is our hours. They're not open on Sunday and Monday."

w a n t t h a t natural look. They don't want people to know they are wearing lashes. But t h e n we have clients who have other jobs — they work at the casino or they're an exotic dancer — and they want something more exotic." A s m a l l p e r c e n t of c l i e n t s get f a l s e e y e l a s h e s because they have none of their own. "Some people want t h e m or special occasion, but most people come in because they like to wear lashes every day," Downs said. "I never thought of wearing lashes. I'd see girls with them and they looked pretty, but it wasn't conducive to my lifestyle. "Now I've got to have them. I can't live without them. I hardly wear any make up now. I don't find a need for it because I think my eyes with the lashes are enough." Salon technicians can apply a set of lashes in about 20 minutes. They handle each human hair lash with tweezers while dabbing it into glue specifically made for eyelashes. The false lash goes on t h e eye lid, between the two layers of natural lash. "I'm almost guided by the force I'm so used to doing it. I know just where it needs to be placed," Downs said. The customer holds a small fan to help blow away the glue fumes, dry the adhesive and decrease tearing. "If they tear I just dry their face and keep going," she said. "You don't even have to take your contact lenses out. The only way contacts would be a problem is if I drop them in your eye and that's unlikely. I've never done that before."* But she said customers with severe allergies may feel some eye irritation and be tempted to rub their eyes. 'You don't want to rub your eyes," she cautioned. Downs advises clients rinse their lashes daily and

remove them after two weeks. "In a week's time you'll need a fill, just like when you get nails filled," she added. "They come loose and they come out. Your body produces oil and it breaks down the adhesive. After two weeks you get a new set. You don't want dirty lashes sitting on your eye." Lisa Dixon, a customer from Southfield, wears contacts and works in a hospital surgery department, but likes false lashes because they "look sexy" "I was going to another place but the lashes were falling out because they p u t too much glue on it," Dixon said. "I was in the mall one day and saw this shop. I've been coming ever since." P l e a s e s e e SALON, NEXT PAGE

Chorale members sing praises of Ireland BY KEELY WYGONIK STAFF WRITER [email protected]

Karen Buddenborg found a pot of gold on t h e other side of a rainbow in Ireland - family she never met. "It was just incredible," said Buddenborg who recently traveled to Ireland, with the Madonna University Chorale. "Everything was just as wonderful as I thought it would be. It was nice to see how our family lived, I even helped my cousins milk the cows." Buddenborg and her parents flew to Ireland a week ahead of the chorale to visit family. "Both of my father's parents were born in Ireland," she said. Seeing the family resemblance in the faces of her cousins was an experience Buddenborg, a resident of Livonia, says she'll never forget. Singing with the chorale at Galway Cathedral and looking out at the audience which included 18 of her family members was also a thrill. Dr. David Wagner, associate professor of music, and director of t h e M a d o n n a U n i v e r s i t y Chorale, said the concert at Galway Cathedral was one of the

best, not only because of t h e a u d i e n c e , b u t b e c a u s e of t h e beautiful setting. "We t a l k e d a b o u t going to Europe, and wanted to have the experience of singing in historic churches," said Wagner. "Touring Ireland was an extra bonus." The chorale is made of Madonna University faculty, students, and f r i e n d s of t h e university. Wagner describes the group as a "community wide chorus" t h a t explores a v a r i e t y of c h o r a l music. "They do it for the love of it," he explained. The group rehearses 7-9 p.m. Tuesdays, and presents a C h r i s t m a s and spring concert. They've performed with the Livonia Symphony Orchestra and p r e s e n t e d a special "Farewell Concert" on June 18 at St. Paul Church in Grosse Pointe Farms before leaving for Ireland on June 23. Their t o u r included p e r f o r mances at St. Patrick's and St. Mary's Pro Cathedral in Dublin, St. Mary's Cathedral in Killarney, a n d G a l w a y C a t h e d r a l . They p r e s e n t e d a p r o g r a m of A m e r i c a n vocal works t h a t included music from the pre-Revolutionary War period to African

American spirituals and newly commissioned works. "It was a kick to be in these places and sing," said Wagner. "I really enjoyed traveling with this group. We mixed up singing with touring and were able to pack in quite a bit of stuff." "We n e v e r met anyone who wasn't friendly," said Buddenborg. "Everyone was anxious to please." Sitting around a table at the Livonia Observer office, looking at photographs, and reminiscing about the trip, Buddenborg, Wagner and his wife, Penny, and chorale member Evelyn Wojtkowiak of Livonia, smiled as t h e y t a l k e d about all t h e things they saw in Ireland. "The colors of the buildings were amazing, they were blue, yellow, pink and green," said P e n n y p o i n t i n g to a p i c t u r e taken in Waterville, a town that Charlie Chaplin loved to visit in ti^e summer. Everyone was taken with the natural beauty of Ireland - yes everything is really green, they said. They began their journey in Dublin, and sang at St. Patrick's C a t h e d r a l j u s t lVa hours a f t e r

Beautiful countryside: Lots of green, and an occasional castle, make Ireland's coun-* tryside memorable. I their plane landed. "Guinness Stout tastes better there," said Wagner who toured the Guinness factory in Dublin. "They make it with spring water. There's a museum too, and at the end of the tour they give everyone a pint." From Dublin the group headed down the coast to Kenmare and stopped at Blarney Castle. Some people w a i t e d in l i n e a n d climbed t h e s t e p s to kiss t h e Blarney Stone, which is really a stone within the wall. O t h e r s shopped a t B l a r n e y Mills. "It's the biggest tourist t r a p in Ireland I'm told," said Buddenborg with a smile. Jewelry, Irish lace, woolens, books, Waterford Crystal, Belek China a n d clothes w e r e a m o n g t h e items being offered for sale. Kenmare, which has the reputation of being "the tidiest town" in I r e l a n d , was a n o t h e r stop. While s i g h t s e e i n g , t h e group stumbled upon the ruins of the second largest Druid Circle. It dates back to 5,000 BC. A stop at Ross Castle near Kil-

l a r n e y was another highlight. The group took a boat tour on Muckross Lake, which is surrounded by "beautiful hills." The lake "was smooth as glass," said Wojtkowiak. She also enjoyed visiting the Cliffs of Moher on t h e west coast below Galway. "They're breathtaking," she said. Everyone agreed it was nice to come into a town and see church steeples. They were taken with t h e n a t u r a l beauty of Ireland

and happy t h a t t h e r e were no billboards cluttering the country* side. If you'd like to visit I r e l a n d b u t can't a f f o r d it r i g h t noi Wojtkowiak recommends Pat O'Ryan's Irish Pub in downt Windsor.

Ice cream still a cool hit on a hot day Fp will drive out of my way for my }% favorite ice cream. Here are some £3 cold facts about ice cream: • Each American consumes a yearly average 23.2 quarts of ice cream, sherbet, ices and other commercially produced frozen dairy products. • More ice cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week. • Ninety-eight percent of all-American households have ice cream in one form or another in their freezer. H To date, the five most popular ice cream flavors are Vanilla, 29 percent, Strawberry, 11.5 percent, Chocolate 8.9 percent, Butter Pecan 5.3 percent, Neapolitan 4.2 percent • Low-fat ice cream has 3 grams of fat or less per serving • Light ice cream has 50 percent less fat than a brand's regular ice cream B Ice milk can mean low-fat, light or both

Frozen facts Emperor Nero of Rome is credited with creating the first frozen dessert. He would send his slaves into the high mountains to retrieve snow, which was then mixed with nectar and honey for food feasts of the elite. Others believe Marco Polo brought recipes for flavored ice waters, told to have been used for thousand of years, back with him from the Far East. During the Victorian era, drinking flavored sodas was considered improper and a sin on Sunday. An enterprising druggist in Evanston, Illinois reportedly concocted his own legal Sunday alternative. It contained ice cream and syrups, but no soda, and was served out of a bowl. To show respect for the holiday he changed the spelling to Sundae. Ice cream was invented in China in about 200 B.C., when a soft, milk and rice mixture was further solidified by packing it in snow.

Parlor The first ice cream parlor opened in New York City in 1776. George Washington loved ice cream so much that he ran up a $200 bill for the dessert treat one summer in the late 1700s. Dolly Madison created a sensation when she served ice cream as a dessert at the White House at the second inaugural ball in 1812. In 1843, New England housewife Nancy Johnson invented the handcranked ice crieam churn. Lacking the resources to market the churn herself, she sold the patent for her invention for $200. 'Die first commercial ice cream plant was established in Baltimore in 1851 by Jacob Fussell.

Cone The ice cream cone was first introduced at the St. Louis Exposition of 1904 when an ice cream vendor r a n out of bowls. A neighboring pastry maker rolled the ice cream in crisp wafers and called them "cornucopias." Several others claim to have originated the cone, including an Italian immigrant who had obtained a patent earlier that year. In 1921, the commissioner of Ellis Island made the decision to treat all incoming immigrants to a taste of something truly American by serving them ice cream as part of their first meal. ' Invention of the ice cream soda is often attributed to Robert M. Green of Philadelphia, who operated a soda water concession and sold a cream soda-a mix of cream, sugar, syrup, and carbonated water. One day he ran out of cream and substituted ice cream, hoping his customers wouldn't notice. But they did, and his daily sales rose from $6 to $600. No matter how it's served, ice cream has stood the test of time and remains one of our favorite desserts. Chef Kelli L. Lewton is owner of 2 Unique Caterers and Event Planners in Bloomfield Hills.

BAG or BUY? School lunches should be well-balanced whether brought or bought

Production line: From left, Ryan MacWilliams, Kelsey Crawford, Analena lacobelli and Sean Morrison got together to make "Guinea Pigs"in a Blanket for their lunches. BY PEGGY MARTINELLI-EVERTS S P E C I A L W R I T E R

t is back-to-school time! Time to search the cupboards and refrigerator to come up with school lunch ideas for another year. Competition for children's food interest (and dollars) is fierce. Neither parents nor schools have multi-million dollar advertising budgets like the fast food chains. Children's food interests have changed through the years - they want the stuff they see on TV. This can make it challenging for parents trying to feed their children healthy foods they will accept.

School lunch program The school lunch program began more than 50 years ago as a program to safeguard the health and welfare of' the nation's children and to support American agriculture. School food service has been credited with greatly reducing malnutrition. Research continues to show a positive relationship between nutrition and learning. School lunch has had some bumps along the way (remember ketchup as a vegetable?), but has proven to be an important component in promoting the nutritional health of children. For the most part, gone are the days of "mystery meat," sterile-looking cafeteria lines and few options. Today, school lunch menus are interesting and, in many schools, the cafeterias are fun places to dine.

Power lunches for busy kids Choose one item from each of the food groups to put together a healthy lunch. • Grains for super energy

Whole wheat bread, rolls, pita bread, bread sticks, raisin bread, dry cereal, English muffins, large baked pretzels, crackers, muffins, tortillas, rice cakes, bagels,'"graham crackers, biscuits, matzo • Protein for growing muscles

Tuna, cottage cheese, low-fat lunch meats, refried beans, peanut butter, string cheese, leftovers, skim milk cheeses, hard cooked eggs, nuts, lentils • Fruits and vegetables for vital vitamins and minerals

Any fresh fruit or vegetable, cleaned, whole or cut into pieces like baby carrots, celery, cucumber, broccoli florets, green pepper rings, apple, wedges, melon balls, orange slices, strawberries, cherry tomatoes or bananas. One hundred percent fruit juice, dried fruits, salads, individual applesauce or frutt cups, tomato or vegetable juice cocktail • Dairy foodsforstrong bones and teeth

Low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, cheese, pudding or custard • Deserts

Vanilla wafers, ginger snaps, animal craGkers, "Teddy Grahams," iced animal jcookies, graham crackers, oatmeal cookies, banana bread or other homemade breads.

Kinvnnv;

School lunch menus are planned by registered dietitians and include foods t h a t kids want to eat, prepared in healthier ways. Ethnic and vegetarian foods, "wrap" sandwiches, and made-from-scratch baked goods are making their way onto school lunch menus. The most important points to help your child learn about the midday meal are making good choices and ' eating a variety of foods. This is true whether your child chooses to brown bag it or buy from the cafeteria line. Unfortunately, many schools allow the sale of competitive foods of minimal nutritional value. Profits from vending machine sales go to benefit the school or school activities such as scholarships, music, art, athletics, yearbook, trips, newspapers, computers, etc. But the price may be a decline in children's nutritional health.

VEGETABLES

Tips Here are some tips to help your child get the best out of a brown bag lunch: £ Let your kids help draw up a lunch menu. Ask them for suggestions on protein, grains and fruits or vegetable ideas. • The average time for lunch is about 21 minutes. Children may spend time chatting with friends, using the restroom, or waiting in line, so remember to pack foods t h a t are convenient to open and eat. • Children love to dip and eat colorful finger foods. Serve a selection of raw or blanched vegetables with a savory dipping sauce like low-fat ranch dressing. • Cut fresh fruit into slices or cubes and put onto toothpicks or wooden skewers like kabobs. Serve with a yogurt dip or peanut butter. • Pack savory soups in your child's thermos to keep their furnaces stoked. Good choices include chicken noodle, creamy vegetable, clam chowder or chili. Leftover stews and casseroles are also excellent lunch ideas. • Wrap a bread stick, carrot or celery stick in a slice of turkey or roast beef. Wrap a pickle in a slice of ham. • Try other sandwich ideas such as tortilla bread stuffed with humus and cheese, leftover meatloaf with ketchup and lettuce on toast, egg salad with chopped green peppers, chicken salad with chopped nuts, or t u n a salad with chopped apples. • Peanut butter is still a sandwich favorite for children. Try experimenting with something besides jelly to add variety, taste, texture and nutritional value. Pair peanut butter with apple, celery or pineapple chunks, raisins or other dried fruits, banana slices, shredded carrots with orange marmalade, alfalfa sprouts, sunflower seeds, or grated low-fat cheddar cheese. • Pretzels have only a fraction of the fat of potato or corn chips (but are still high in salt) and are a fun treat.

See related school lunch story on Taste front. Our desire was to come up with a lunch entree t h a t could be m a d e in q u a n t i t y a h e a d of time, w r a p p e d individually a n d stored either in the freezer or refrigerator for easy lunch packing. We w a n t e d t h e food to be easy enough for a child to make and fun for them to eat. A group of kids from Clarkston agreed to experiment with a variety of ingredients to come up with the perfect make-ahead lunch. They all decided t h a t these "pigs" were great right out of the oven. j

the dough, being careful not to let the ingredients hang over the edge of the dough. For crescent rolls, either cut or fold the meat and cheese into a triangle so it fits on the dough. Once assembled, place a second piece of dough on top and seal the edges by pinching them together. Transfer "pig" to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes (pizza dough may take a bit longer), or until rolls are puffy and nicely browned.

The filled crescent rolls were the best hot, but the kids preferred the rolls made from pizza dough or buttermilk biscuits when sei*ved cold or at room temperature.

If pigs are going to be reheated, remove from wrapper, place on a piece of paper towel and microwave until heated thoroughly. To eat cold, the kids liked pizza dough with pepperoni and cheese best. Scrambled eggs with ham and cheese on a crescent roll, warmed in the microwave, was the favorite breakfast Guinea pig.

Note: To lower the fat content, choose reduced fat crescent rolls and fill with lean meats. Remember that a very little bit of cheese goes a long way. To assemble your "pigs": Preheat oven to 375°F. If using pizza dough, roll it out thinly (about 1/4-inch thick) and cut into 4-inch squares. If using biscuits, roll each biscuit until it is flat (about 1/4-inch thick).

Two new minimally-invasive procedures offer chronic gastric reflux sufferers relief. B Y R E N ^ E

S K O G L U N D

S T A F F W R I T E R

[email protected]

Y

our stomach and esophagus refuse to cooperate, and your last meal - a hamburger, a taco, a cup of coffee, perhaps a glass of wine - is sending a hot ball of acid back up your food pipe. If this happens every day, you may be one of 16 million Americans who suffer from gastroesophageal acid reflux disease (GERD), in which stomach acid backs up into the esophagus. In most patients, this is due to a transient relaxation of the "gate" or sphincter that keeps the lower end of the esophagus closed when a person is not swallowing food or liquids. The four major symptoms of GERD are: • Heartburn (uncomfortable, rising, burning sensation behind the breastbone). • R e g u r g i t a t i o n of g a s t r i c acid or s o u r contents into the mouth. • Difficult and/or painful swallowing. • Chest pain. Left unchecked, severe reflux can lead to many complications, including ulcers, asthma, vocal cord inflammation and Barrette esophagus, a precursor to esophageal cancer. STAFF PHOTO BY BBYAN MITCHELL The causes of GERD Consulting: are both genetic and Dr. Nabil Sultani, a environmental. It tends gastroenterologist at to run in families, and obesity may be a St. Mary Mercy Hos- while f a c t o r (excess w e i g h t pital, welcomes the pushes the stomach new treatment up), the connection has options but says only not been scientifically time will prove their proven. "I t h i n k i t ' s m o r e long-term effectivecommon in c o u n t r i e s ness. with sedentary lifestyles, w i t h people

who eat j u n k food and smoke cigarettes," said Dr. Tamir Ben-Menachem, a gastroenterologist with the Henry Ford Health System. Unfortunately, GERD is a life-altering disease. People who experience daily heartburn restrict their diets and often have trouble sleeping since lying prone tends to worsen symptoms. Some have difficulty when exercising. "When we take into consideration the quality-oflife scale and compare reflux to other diseases, like hypertension, patients feel reflux is more detrimental to their quality of life. That's j u s t the perception," said Dr. Nabil Sultani, a gastroenterologist at St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia.

Treatments Most people try over-the-counter a n t a c i d s or dietary changes before they see a doctor. "Every individual has their own level of comfort. I've seen patients with severe symptoms for years and they just decided to seek help," said Sultani, Prescription medications - Zantac and Tagamet and the stronger and more effective Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex and Protonix - coupled with lifestyle changes remain the doctor's first line of defense. If these fail to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, there's surgery for the most severe cases in which part of the stomach is wrapped around the lower end of the esophagus to prevent acid from getting back up into the esophagus. "The old-fashioned surgery was the gold standard for years," said Sultani. Today, most surgery is done laproscopically; in addition, there are new, less invasive options. Endoscopic gastroplication, a non-invasive procedure recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, is being performed at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, one of j u s t 25 sites around the country and the only one in Michigan offering the procedure. The Bard Endo Luminal Gastroplication device much like a mini sewing machine - is attached to

the end of a endoscope. The thin flexible endoscopic tube is inserted through the mouth into the esophagus, a n d t h e tiny sewing device places stitches below the lower esophageal sphincter. The suturing material is then tied together to tighten the valve, preventing stomach contents from flowing back into the esophagus. No incisions are involved in the outpatient procedure, which is usually done without general anesthesia. Most patients return to normal activities the next day. "About 50 percent of individuals w i t h GERD should be eligible for the new procedure," said BenM e n a c h e m . "This is a cost-effective t r e a t m e n t option that helps eliminate the burning and discomfort experienced by patients. Also, it helps reduce reflux sufferers' reliance on medication and can help eliminate the need for invasive surgical procedures." A recent study, conducted at eight sites in the U n i t e d S t a t e s , including H e n r y Ford Hospital, showed that symptoms were reduced by an average of 73 percent for patients receiving the Bard Endoscopic Suturing treatment and that 67 percent of p a t i e n t s required fewer t h a n four doses of acid r e d u c t i o n medicine p e r m o n t h . The n u m b e r of patients on daily Proton Pump Inhibitors or multiple medications was reduced by 75 percent.

New U-M procedure Doctors at U-M Hospital in Ann Arbor are using the recently FDA-approved S t r e t t a procedure to t r e a t chronic h e a r t b u r n . The procedure uses an intense pulse of radio waves to tighten the muscle control at the point where the esophagus meets the stomach, preventing acid from traveling upward. "As many as 7 percent of Americans have daily symptoms of heartburn, or reflux, and frequently they don't respond well to over-the-counter medications and lifestyle changes," said Dr. Timothy Nostrant, a professor of gastroenterology and leader of U-M's Stretta research and clinical program. "This procedure could work for the 60 percent of those patients who have the most severe forms of the dis-

Coping tips Dr. Nabil Sultani, a gastroenterologist at St. Mary Mercy Hospital, sympathizes with bis paiients who ofu-n sav, "Doctor, you mean I came here to give up what makes life worth living?" H.e suggests, rather than pushes, treatments. ,f You can't change everything in their life because the compliance level goes down/' The American College of Gastroenterology recommends the following simple practices to decrease the amount of gastric contents that reaches the lower esophagus: • Elevate the head of the bed. The simplest method is to use a 4 by 4 to which two j a r caps have been nailed the appropriate distance apart to receive the legs or casters a t the upper end of the bod. Failure to use the j a r caps inevitable results in the patient being jolted from sleep as the upper end of the bed rolls off the 4 by 4. Alternatively? you may use a foam wedge under the mattress to elevate the head about 610 inches. Pillows are worthless for elevating the head. • Avoid lying down for two hours after eating. Do not eat for at least two hours before bedtime; avoid eating a large meal at least four hours before bedtime. • Avoid tight clothing. Loose weight if obesity contributes to the problem. • Avoid fatty foods, chocolate, citrus juice, tomato juice, pepper, peppermint and carbonated beverages (th& tizz causes the stomach to expand). • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes. Attempts to render the refluxed material less noxious consist of: • Antacids tend to neutralize gastric acid and increase sphincter tone, Alginic acid can add a mechanical barrier to refluxed material. • If results are not forthcoming, consult your doctor regarding diagnosis, medications and additional treatment options.

ease, which is a substantial number of people." The Stretta procedure uses equipment made by Curon Medical, which sponsored the clinical trial led to the recent FDA approval. While a patient is under mild anesthesia, a catheter is threaded down the throat and into the esophagus, stopping just at the muscular valve t h a t separates the esophagus from the stomach. Inside the catheter is a narrow instrument with electrodes t h a t emits powerful but carefully aimed radio waves, which heat the muscles of the esophagus and causes them to contract. The patient may feel a sense of fullness in the chest or a little heat during the procedure. "It doesn't strengthen the muscles, but instead produces a little bit of scarring between the esophagus and the stomach, which makes the valve a little less easy to open up and makes it less likely t h a t the acid will come up," said Nostrant. Nostrant and his colleagues have performed the 45-minute S t r e t t a procedure in about 15 patients and find that it gives partial or complete relief to nearly all. However, patients with hiatal hernias or patients who only experience heartburn occasionally are not candidates for the treatment.

Success Paula Bjertness, 42, of Livonia had no symptoms of GERD other t h a n a sore throat. She had been to an ear, nose a n d throat specialist who performed "all kinds of swallowing tests but couldn't find anything wrong." She was prescribed Prilosec. "It helped, but it didn't take the. pain away," she said. She began limiting her diet mostly to Popsicles. While visiting a friend in Atlanta, Bjertness discussed h e r symptoms with the woman's son, a n internist. He told her she probably had acid reflux. When she r e t u r n e d home, she made a n appointment with a gastroenterologist who referred her to Ben-Menachem. A few weeks ago, Bjertness underwent endoscopic, gastroplication a t Henry Ford Hospital. Surgery was at 9 a.m., and she was home by 11 a.m. "It was wonderful," she said. For a b o u t a w e e k , B j e r t n e s s ' e s o p h a g u s w a s swollen and food seemed to get stuck. Ben-Menachem a s s u r e d h e r everything was normal. The swelling subsided, and Bjertness celebrated. "I immediately had a piece of chocolate, chocolate cake. It was great. I haven't had to take any medicine," she said. "I would definitely recommend the surgery. It was simple. It was worth it." To learn more about the Bard Endoscopic Suturing System procedure, call 1-800 Henry Ford or visit Henry Ford.com.

No problem. With the Palm VIIx, I accessed a wireless service called Mapblast! I entered the address of my hotel, the theater's address and, in less time than it takes me to write this description of the process, my Palm displayed turn-by-turn driving instructions and a map. In the theater itself, waiting for the movie to s t a r t , before the previews rolled, I used the Palm VIIx to check my e-mail and found a message from an associate telling me the morning meeting we had planned had been rescheduled to an earlier hour.

The Council of Better Business Bureaus reports t h a t stay-athome mothers are among those most likely to fall for work-athome scams. Scam artist know t h a t these mothers want to be available to their children and earn extra income, so they lure them with deceptive home-based employment and business opportunity ads. According to Sharon Owens, home business consultant, mother and f o u n d e r of The Entrepreneur's Resource Center, "There are m a n y l e g i t i m a t e home-based careers. Working at home can work for you if you do your research and aren't looking for a quick buck. If you're considering a home-based business opportunity, it's important to select one t h a t i n t e r e s t s you

enough to invest your time and money." In her book, The Best HomeBased Careers for Mothers, the first in a series of home business publications, Owens draws from her own experience as a work-athome mom as well as t h a t of o t h e r moms. She e v a l u a t e s home-based career options from telecommuting to franchises, details 75 "mom-friendly" businesses and describes the following work-at-home scams: • Typing/processing medical reports - The ad instructs you to call a 900 number for information. The a u t o m a t e d voice is either very slow (you're paying by the m i n u t e ) or very f a s t (requiring you to place a second call). You're told to send an SASE for information that turns out to be useless. • Responding to 809 numbers - These n u m b e r s are iii t h e

Caribbean and aren't regulated like n u m b e r s in t h e U n i t e d States so you aren't forewarned about the charges. The calls can be in excess of $20 per minute, and representatives use various tactics to keep you on the phone. • Assembling or sewing products - To get started, you must purchase equipment and supplies from t h e company. The company may pay you for your first batch of assembled products, but rejects future batches for not meeting their "standard of quality." No explanation is given. • Getting paid to read books You'll pay for information on how to secure a job r e a d i n g manuscripts and movie scripts at home. The instructions you receive tell you to contact publishers and offer your services. You'll then find out t h a t most publishers have in-house staff to

do their reading. • Envelope stuffing - The ad instructs you to send a small fee for more information. What you receive is instructions on placing the same ad in your local newspapers and magazines. The only way you make money is by misleading others. • I n t e r n e t schemes - The above scams are the most common ones, but the I n t e r n e t is becoming a popular vehicle for fraudulent schemes because of the potential to reach millions a t , minimal cost. Be wary of e-mail messages that contain information on "hot" or "groundbreaking" income opportunities. Before getting involved in a work-at-home or home-based business opportunity: • Get all claims and promises

(including how you will be paid) in writing. • Check for complaints with the Better Business Bureau, the • attorney general's office in the company's hometown and t h e national Fraud Information Center at (800) 876-7060. • If you decide to invest in a home-based business opportunity, never send cash or checks. Pay with a credit card. You can dispute the charges if you feel you've been taken. Sharon Owehs has written articles on government securities and management for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

ARTHRITIS THAT DOESN'T RESPOND In most instances, a physician can diagnose your arthritis, start treatment, and you can expect that over time you will improve. Such is the rhythm of events in most cases, but not every one. Despite your best efforts, you may not gain control of your pain. Why not? First is the question of diagnosis. Your doctor may repeat earlier blood work and xrays, as he retraces the steps that led to the identification of your condition. He must reassure himself he is treating the right arthritis. Second is the problem of appropriate therapy. No medical regimen brings a guarantee that it is right for you. People differ in the way that they absorb drugs, break them down, and rid t i e body of them. "Hie efficacy of the medicines used to treat your arthritis depends on an orderly progression of each of these steps, and that may not be true in your pase. Third, while different arthritis conditions have features that allow physicians to make a distinct diagnosis, doctors have no way of measuring the intensity of the condition in an individual. At times, the failure of usual treatment to provide relief is the only way to discover that yours is a 'tough' case. When proper therapy for the correct condition fails, your doctor may iook for a compromise. He will take best medical practice and combine it with a change in your life style. The alternative, which has risks, is to turn to new treatments that are promising, but not yet proven.

NEW HOMES & REAL ESTATE How to prove you deserve loan In order to get yourself preapproved for a mortgage loan, you must prove to the lender that you are a "good risk" and will pay off the mortgage loan in the agreed-upon manner. Typically, a lender will ask for paper evidence that you can pay off the loan. To save yourself time further down the road, start pulling together the items you will need in order to apply for a mortgage. You'll be asked for income tax returns for the previous three years, current copies of pay stubs, records of any past negative credit history that has since been paid off, and records of any supplemental income you may have. If you are self-employed, you will need all business records and tax returns for the past three years. Also, if you're going to be receiving money as a gift for the down payment from a friend or relative, have that person prepare a "gift letter" for you, confirming that the money is a gift, not a loan. This letter clarifies that you are not going further into debt and jeopardize your ability to repay the lender's loan. Be sure to ask each lender you're . considering for a disclosure that lists all the loan terms. Be cautions of. referrals that come from the real estate agent, especially if the agent receives a "referral fee" from the lender. Out-of-pocket expenses to close on your new home can add up to a few thousand dollars. If you'll be making your purchase with an adjustablerate mortgage, be sure you base your budget on what the interest rate will bump to in the second year. The down payment and closing costs are hardly all the money you will be spending when you move into your new home. The National Association of Home Builders says the average buyer of a new home spends $5,200 in the first year just on appliances, furnishing and changes to the property. Karen Skinner is with the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants in Farmington Hills. (248) 855-2288. www. michcpa. org

Sub is an oasis near M-59, U.S.-23 Dean Piekarski, sales m a n a g e r for Triangle Development, explains w h a t makes Heritage Meadows in Hartland Township so special. "In a nutshell, it's location, schools, the community, itself, surrounded by trees, sidewalks and streetlights for children," Piekarski said. "It's an oasis, very quiet," added Inga Cruz, sales r e p r e s e n t a t i v e at the detached site condominium community. "You can stand in the middle of the sub and not know that you're close to M-59 or the freeway." "You get g r e a t value h e r e for t h e h o u s e we b u i l d - a lot of s q u a r e footage," added Pierre Nona, Triangle vice president. "Hartland schools are a big reason people are moving here - MEAP scores and new f a c i l i t i e s t h e y ' r e b u i l d i n g here," Piekarski added. Heritage Meadows is on Clark j u s t north of M-59 less than a mile east of U.S. 23. "We're 20 minutes from Novi, 25 minutes from Farmington Hills, 25 minutes from Ann Arbor," Nona said. "It's a growth area. That's what brought us here - location and convenience to freeways." And the housing value for price compares very favorably to nearby Oakland County, the Triangle folks maintain. E i g h t floor plans are available a t Heritage Meadows. They r a n g e in price from $184,900 for a ranch of nearly 1,500 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths to $234,900 for a story-and-a-half of 2,400 square feet with four bedrooms and 31/2 baths. All homes include at base price twocar garage, basement, wood foyer, carpeting t h r o u g h o u t , dishwasher, 150amp electrical service and ceiling fan in the great room or family room. Upgrades include fireplace ($2,500), air c o n d i t i o n i n g ($2,500), skylights ($850 apiece), glamour bath in the master suite with jet tub, separate shower, c e r a m i c t i l e and a 50-gallon w a t e r heater ($3,700) and a fancier kitchen with island and extra cabinets ($1,000). A second-floor laundry is available as part of a couple of two-story plans at Heritage Meadows for a n additional $500. Three-car garages can be had for an additional $6,000 on all plans. Vinyl siding is the primary exterior material. "We offer a home for beginners, people who a r e empty-nesters, families that are growing" Cruz said. "We have

Diamond model: This story-and-a- •half of2,000 square feet at Heritage Meadows includes a firstfloor master, two bedrooms and a full bath upstairs.

"We're a company that takes a lot of pride in cust o m e r service a n d b u i l d i n g q u a l i t y houses." And visitors? "They're i m p r e s s e d with t h e floor plans, spaciousness, no wasted space," Cruz said. "The size of the windows, the amount of windows we put in the homes. We go to the extra expense to screw down f l o o r s a n d d r y w a l l , as well." Two models have been constructed. The Diamond, a story-and-a-half of 2,003 square feet, features a two-story foyer, great room with voluihe ceiling, a den/ office, kitchen/ nook, l^alf b a t h , laundry, and m a s t e r with c a t h e d r a l ceiling, walk-in closet, two sipk-vanity and glamour bath package on the first floor. Two bedrooms and a full b a t h are upstairs. Base price is $208,900. The model as is with upgrades costs $247,000, which doesn't include landscaping or deck. The other model, the expanded Emerald, is a two story of 2,150 square feet. It contains a living room and dining i oom on one side of the home, a long,

narrow family room with sloped ceiling and kitchen nook. A half bath also is on the first floor. All three bedrooms, the master with c a t h e d r a l ceiling, walk-in closet and combination tub/ shower, , a second full bath and a loft are upstairs. The laundry also is up.

The property tax rate is $23.97 per $1,000 of state taxable value, half of sales price for new construction. That means the owners of a $210,000 home there would pay about $2,500 the first year. The association/ maintenance fee is $30 p e r m o n t h . Most of the 63 lots have a price p r e m i u m r a n g i n g from $2,000 to $10,000. Brian and Holly Gallaher ordered a four-bedroom Diamond for themselves and children Kaylie and Jacob. "We're getting a lot for the money," Brian said. "No. 2 is schools.

The phenomenal use of space makes this home ideal for a large family that needs room to spread out and enjoy life. The Ragsdale is a large ranch home with a wrap-around covered porch in the front, a large deck in back. Numerous windows grace the walls of this home providing extra light for the many rooms. Inside the entry of the Ragsdale is the study to the right and a guest room with a full bath to the left. Adjacent to this area is the u t i l i t y room and a door to t h e garage. The entire rear area of the main floor is dedicated to a large family room and a large reading area. There is a fireplace in one corner and an entertainment center in the frqpt corner. The kitchen is centrally located

and has a circular shape. The cook top i s l a n d is s u r r o u n d e d with counters and an eating bar, with a corner pantry. To the right are the breakfast nook and the formal dining area.

Sunroom spunks up (NAPS) - Imagine if you could replace a wall on the back of your home with glass. Light would fill the house. It would feel larger. You would gain a new appreciation for the nature in your backyard. To get these kinds of benefits, many Americans are adding sunrooms to their homes. Some are adding large glass enclosed rooms that expand nearly the length of the house filling it with light. Others add smaller rooms off a family or liv- • ing room, says Patio Enclosures, Inc., the nation's largest sunroom manufacturer and installer. What many people don't realize is. that today's sunrooms can be utilized for most any purpose. Because enclosures are made of glass and screen sliding doors and windows, homeowners have flexibility to use the room as much as they wish, extending the use of an open or screened porch. . For a free booklet . about creating a glass enclosure on your home, call (800) 480-1966. Or write Patio Enclosures, Inc., P.O. Box 186, Macedonia, OH 44056.

"A lot of people don't realize that their credit is not as damaged as they they think and if it is, she can tell them how to address those issues, so they can come back 6 months later and qualify for a mortgage." Castelli said.

This commitment to service comes certainly at a price, Castelli explains. The team has hired a web designer, couriers, assistants and marketing personnel, but Castelli says these measures have been to stay abreast of the fast growing real estate market in our area, and offering very flexible commission structures that start at only 1% for coordination, as every one of our customers is in a different situation, with different needs.

Additionally, The Castelli Team can help you find the right mortgage representative to help you buy your next home. Castelli refers many of his clients to Lynn Kososki, loan officer for Mortgage Banking Services. Finding the right mortgage for your personnel situation can save or cost you thousands, Kososki knows the ins and outs of nearly any type of mortgage his customer needs, Castelli said.

Let's Talk About Real Estate

Every h o m e o w n e r w a n t s to sell h i s or h e r home for the highest possible price. The steps involved in a successful sale require a t h o r o u g h analysis of c u r r e n t m a r k e t facts. These include i n f o r m a t i o n on recent sales, other homes presently on the market, a n d those properties t h a t were on t h e market with no offers a n d h a v e been withdrawn. Finally, a n a s k i n g price is chosen. Hopefully, t h e asking price will encourage buyers to come see t h e property when compared with t h e a s k i n g price of competing properties. It should also allow for a n offer somewhat less than the asking price so t h a t a n e v e n t u a l selling price may be arrived at t h a t gives t h e seller t h e h i g h e s t price possible and yet provides t h e p u r c h a s e r w i t h t h e satisfaction t h a t t h e selling price is fair and reasonable.

The above described process does not succeed, however, if the asking price is unrealistically too high. This particularly becomes a problem if t h e seller d e m a n d s t h a t t h e Realtor® list t h e p r o p e r t y a t a high a s k i n g price t h a t cannot be supported by c u r r e n t m a r k e t facts. This often occurs when a seller says to t h e Realtor®, "I u n d e r s t a n d the information about today's prices, b u t I w a n t to t r y a higher price for a while j u s t to see if we can get it."

W h e n a Realtor® is given t h e s e instructions, h e or she knows t h a t fewer showings will occur while the property is f o r s a l e b e c a u s e it will not a t t r a c t m a n y lookers w hen compared w i t h s i m i l a r properties a t a lesser price. Many homeowners w h o ask to price t h e property high also blame their Realtor® if t h e r e a r e little or no showings.

Insisting on a h i g h a s k i n g price and blaming t h e Realtor® for few showings can give t h e Realtor® mixed signals and f r u s t r a t e t h e efforts of the Realtor® a n d t h e homeowner to affect a successful sale. ADVICE: If you w a n t your property sold in a reasonable t i m e period, price it to compete w i t h similar properties also for sale. If you w a n t to price it higher t h a n the m a r k e t will bear, don't expect your Realtor® to be able to generate many showings by i n t e r e s t e d buyers.

Awnings have a flavor all their own • Lemonade, one of summer's great pleasures, requires just three ingredients - lemons, water and sugar. And none of these costs much. The solution to outdoor enjoyment free from sun, rain, bugs, and other nuisances - can also be simple, inexpensive and refreshing. Retractable awnings easily transform a deck or patio into a cost-effective outdoor room for relaxing on .long summer days. The recipe for the perfect retractable awning is simple. Just combine these ingredients: Protection. Exposure to the sun's

ultraviolet rays can cause skin cancer. Doctors recommend a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 15 or higher. SPF varies from awning to awning. Before buying, ask for lab r e s u l t s demonstrating the fabric's SPF. Fabric. Choose a non-porous, vinyl awning because woven materials, like acrylic, can let in dirt and water through the weave. Vinyl is also washable. Fit. Fifty percent of U.S. houses are low-height, but awning installment typically requires at least eight feet. H e a t . The t e m p e r a t u r e u n d e r a

retractable awning can be up to 30 degrees cooler than outside, but dark colors absorb light, generating heat. For maximum usability, choose a lightcolored awning canopy (the part closest to the house). Waterproof. "Water repellent" doesn't mean "waterproof." Choose waterproof fabric to stay dry under your awning. Installation. Professionally installed custom awnings are expensive. Look for awnings designed for the average do-it-yourselfer. It's a way to

save hundreds of dollars. F u n a c c e s s o r i e s . Screens are a great way to make your deck into an outdoor room; they also keep insects away while you enjoy the outdoors. Long life warranty. You want to have your awning for summer after summer. Once you rate awnings in the areas above, compare prices. For information about JIL Industries S u n s e t t e r awnings, call (800) 876-8060 or log on to www. sunsetter. com

Thwarting burglars as easy as 1,2, 3 Many b u r g l a r s will spend no longer t h a n 60 seconds trying to break into a home. Good locks and good neighbors who watch out for each other can be big crime deterrents. Did you know that in almost half of all successful residential burglaries, thieves simply breeze in through unlocked doors or crawl t h r o u g h unlocked windows? Make sure every external door has a sturdy, wellinstalled deadbolt lock. Key-in-the-knob locks alone aren't enough. Here are some other crime prevention tips from the National Crime Prevention Council. Sliding glass doors can offer easy access if they a r e n ' t properly secured. Secure them by installing

commercially available locks or putting a broomstick or dowel in the inside track to jam the door. To prevent the door from being lifted off the track, drill a hole through the sliding door frame and the fixed frame. Then insert a pin in the hole. Lock double-hung windows with key locks or "pin" windows by drilling a small hole in a 45-degree angle between the inner and outer frames, then insert a nail that can be removed. Secure basement windows with grills or grates. Instead of hiding keys around the outside of your home, give an extra key to a neighbor you trust. When you move into a new house or apartment, rekey the locks. Always check the doors to your home. A lock on a flimsy door is about as effective as locking your car

door but leaving the window down. Outside doors should be metal or solid wood. If your doors don't fit tightly in their frames, install weather stripping around them. Install a peephole or wide-angle viewer in entry doors to see who is outside without opening the door. Door chains break easily and don't keep out intruders. Take some exterior precautions. Install and use outside lights and keep them on at night. Burglars hate bright lights. Prune shrubbery so it doesn't hide doors or windows. Cut tree limbs a thief could use to climb to an upper level window. Clearly display your house number so police and other emergency workers can find your home quickly. When you travel, create the illu-

sion that you're home by using timers that will automatically turn on lights and appliances, like radios, in different areas of your house throughout the evening. Lights burning 24 hours a day signal an empty house. Leave shades, blinds and curtains in normal positions and don't let your mail pile up. Call the post office to stop delivery or have a neighbor pick it up. Make a list of your valuables. Take photos of the items and list their serial numbers and descriptions. Check with local law enforcement agencies about engraving your valuables to protect them against theft. Sometimes they will offer home security surveys to residents.

Title coverage saves the day

by appointment

(NAPS)-Owner's title insurance, based on an expert search and examination of the public records, will offer the best possible chance of eliminating risk that can lead to title claim and loss. But even the most thorough search may not locate all potential problems. In one case, the ownership of a home passed to four sons

upon the deaths of

both their parents. Subsequently, a couple bought the residence from the sons and all seemed well - until another previously unknown interest surfaced as a surprise challenge to the ownership of the buyers. One of the brothers had incurred an unpaid business debt, which was filed against the real estate as a lien, which became a problem for the new purchasers. Legal proceedings followed, where the lien was upheld - but was limited to a one quarter interest in the property due to the shared ownership of the four brothers. Fortunately, the new buyers were protected by owner's title insurance acquired before completing their transaction. The title company paid the claim and covered legal fees and costs as well.

A. Everyone has different ideas about what makes a good boss. Some people need a warm, fuzzy environment and a supervisor who is just plain nice. Others might be willing to compromise on the nice part if they can hook up with someone who is simply fair and consistent. Lots of folks want a boss who is a teacher. Many just JOB want someone who SEARCH will leave them alone. Try writing down the characteristics of the best and worst supervisors you've had over the years. Develop your own profile of the Hypothetical Perfect Supervispr (HPS). Because bossGEORGE es come and go, you HAYES would ideally like to find several HPS types within the same organization. Most of us have had great bosses who were suddenly replaced by Harpo Marx or Bonaparte. That's going to happen. But the odds' of working for an HPS now and in the future might be slightly better in organizations that seem packed with good managers. I'm going to be accused of kissing up for this, but let me describe my HPS. Let's call him Keith, since that's what his wife calls him. Competent. Nothing is more disturbing to some of us than working for a person who doesn't have enough knowledge or experience to deal effectively with strategic or tactical issues. There are a lot of supervisors out there packing nothing more than unfounded confidence. Keith made many decisions that were not popular with his managers.

"go to work with the attitude that I'm going to learn something new every•day," said Harry Pickett, now in his fourth year as an apprentice millwright. His attitude fits well with a job that makes use of a variety of different skills for jobs that never stay too long in one place. When a big machine needs to be installed the millwrights do the job.

"We're installation specialists," said Dave Morris^ director of the institute. "We install the big machines that a machine manufacturer builds. We install on site, ...We are the best in'the world." Morris distinguishes the millwrights in his union from those who work in plants. Millwrights Local 1102, which is part of the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, has

He said the auto companies have had trouble filling their millwright needs, but construction millwrights have been steadily employed. "We do everything from small machine engines to nuclear turbines,"Morris said. 'We go into plants and install the machines. Sometimes a plant will take on an installation and it's out of their realm. It's what we do." To do this job, an apprentice learns a P l e a s e s e e MILLWRIGHT, G3

variety of skills including moving, leveling, aligning and installing large machinery, rigging, erecting, splicing of belts, cleaning, lubricating and replacing gears, fabrication and installation of conveyor systems, turbines and generators, automated systems and welding. The program combines on-the-job work with classroom instruction. In the metro area the classes are at the institute's facility in Warren. "The training center is paid for out of union dues. They generate a fund from their hourly rate," Morris said. Greg Lapshan of Whitmore Lake had friends who were millwrights and knew it was right for him. "I like working with my hands and a chance to do some trouble shooting and figure things out," he said. Most of the training has been on the job. "We go to school one day every other week, that's divided between classroom and shop," he said. "Except July, that's when the Big Three shuts down and we're brought in, it's really busy." Classroom work includes a history of the trade, optical and laser alignment, power tools, precision tools, gears and bearings, lubricationm welding, rigging and more. Lapshan has found t h a t there's never a dull moment. He's worked in auto plants, at nuclear power plants and on large turbines. "You're never in one place for a long period of time," he said. Pickett also enjoys the variety.

&

"I do something different all the time, you don't work at one place. You may be someplace for six months and then you go on to something else," he said. "I've been in powerhouses, the Big 3 and Home Depot doing rack work." There are also monetary benefits that go with the job. A fully qualified union millwright earns a starting pay of more than $28,000 a year with comprehensive health and dental benefits, pension and vacation pay. Morris said a journeyman willwright can make between $60,000 and $80,000, with some making as much as $150,000 to $200,000. An first-year apprentice makes 60 percent of journeyman scale, then gets a 5 percent increase every six months. "This will be my career. I was elated to get in," Lapshan said. "I love what I'm doing and I think I'm really good a t it and expect to stay with it." To qualify for the institute, an applicant must be 18 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, a valid driver's license, be a U.S. citizen and pass a drug-screening test. The program takes about 25 to 30 applicants a year. For more information, call Dave Morris at (810)5734660 or contact Ron Conrad of the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights at (248)541-1740 or call 1-888-HAMMER-9 or check their website at www.hammer9 .com.

Sometimes, when they thought the proper course is obvious, he resisted. And while his batting average wasn't flawless, the managers often admitted later that he had been right.

T

he 3.2 CL is Acura's cool, new entry into the mid-size, luxury coupe class. Reports show the luxury coupe market will grow over 150 percent in t h e next few years, and Acura, hoping to compete with coupes from BMW and MercedesBenz, h a s redesigned the CL to a t t r a c t these selective, upscale, coupe buyers. The CL is targeted at career couples in their 30s a n d t h e active, over-50 crowd, whose kids have already left home. Of course, the CL is t h e logical next step, when loyal Honda owners are ready to move u p to a more expensive auto purchase. T h e 3.2 CL is a hot number, and the Type S version adds some extra spice in the performance d e p a r t m e n t . The exterior lines are sharp, clear, and well defined. The Asian genealogy is quite apparent

it, too. The interior of my CL w a s absolute charcoal. I t had a flat slate appearance t h a t worked well w i t h the vibrant exterior. T h e only color b r e a k came from the dark, wood-tone trim, t h a t actually resembled brown pearl granite, r a t h e r t h a n any wood I've seen. Without a doubt, the look is original. All controls were conveniently located a n d easy to use, except for the heated-seat switch t h a t was hidden a w a y under the stereo. The leather steering wheel, along with the leather seats, comfortably w r a p you into t h e stateness of the cabin. With tlie power-operated, multiadjustable seats, I was able to find a n e c o n o m i c a l l y correct position and enjoy a pleasurable ride. There are lots of u s e f u l storage c o m p a r t m e n t s throughout,

in t h e front end. T h e overall styling is very good looking. Sprinkle a bagful of Saffron, for t a s t e and distinctive color, into t h e makings of t h e new Acura CL Type-S, and you've got a dish as appealing and intriguingly exotic as any curry-colored meal comp a n y founder, Soichiro Honda, might have savored in his childhood home in J a p a n . The saffron color is totally wild. I first saw this color a few y e a r s back, when Volvo introduced it w i t h the C70. At t h a t time, the color was, perhaps, a little too progressive for the 1990s market, and it certainly didn't m a k e it into Crayola's top 10. In the new millennium, the positive feedback on this color w a s non-stop. Although still very advanced, people really seemed drawn by it now, and asked a lot of questions. As for me, I w a s n ' t to keen on the shade at first, but being fashionably fickle, I ended up liking

There is a wonderfully secure feeling to the handling, a n d the Type S offers a truly great driving experience. I was quite excited by it. Acura uses a very clever sales strategy for the 3.2 CL. Almost every option a driver could possibly w a n t is included as s t a n d a r d equipment. The automatic transmission, an Acura/Bose stereo/cassette w i t h a six-disc CD changer, power moonroof, heated, power seats, Xenon headlights and leather are all on board. The one exception is the in-dash navigation system, which is really easy to use and a n excellent navigator. Pricing is aggressive at $30,330 base. All CLs are covered by a fouryear/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper, limited warranty. Another extra for owners is Acura's "TLC," which provides 24-hour roadside assistance. With the heightened interest t h a t seems to buzz around this car, it will be fascinating to watch how 2001 CL sales t a k e off. My guess is t h a t the competition will need to stay u p on their wheels.
