Grub Crawl delights Canton restaurants and participants The 15 Canton restaurants a n d their m a n a g e r s who participated "were thrilled" with t h e g r u b crawl Tuesday evening according to Canton chamber director Diane dojei. The C h a m b e r sold about 5 6 0 tickets t o t h e event. Everyone received a bright green T-shirt as a n admissions ID and participants got on buses a n d w e n t f r o m place to place to sample a variety of foods. "We t h i n k it went very well. The m a n a g e r at Chili's was h a p p y because some Tuesday night customers were hack the next day to buy gift certificates. One group even p a ^ e d on the buses and went everywhere in their own limo," Cojei said. Participating Canton restaurants included: 4 Friends Restaurant, Ashoka Indian Cuisine, Bailey's Pub & Grille, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Chili's Bar & Grill, Crow's Nest, Damon's, LaShish, Mexican Fiesta II, Palermo's Pizzeria, R o m a n Forum, Rusty Nail, Shark's Club, T.C. Gator's, a n d T.G.I. Friday's. "It was a really f u n event, a good change of pace for the Chamber. We can't always b e talking a b o u t business," Cojei said.

Condos, apartments lead Canton building The n u m b e r of building permits issued by Canton Township is up 3.2 percent overall for the first six m o n t h s o f 2 0 0 4 . Favorable interest rates are among the factors leading to the j u m p . The biggest increase came in the apartment and condominium sector. Permits were issued for a total of 336 units compared to 3 0 3 a year ago — an increase of 10.9 percent. Canton Building Official J o h n Weyer isn't surprised by the numbers. "That's where we've been strong the past few years," h e said. Permits issued for single-family homes fell by 8.5 percent, from 201 units for the first six m o n t h s o f 2 0 0 3 t o 184 this year. Weyer thinks t h a t sector of the market will change dramatically in the final two quarters of this year and continue with fast growth in 2005. "Overall, I think we'll be u p 15 to 2 0 percent next year," h e said. The type of units developers seek permits for depends greatly on economic conditions and the availability of lots within a community, Weyer added. Interest rates, labor costs and the price of building materials also influence development. Currently; Weyer said, interest rates are good, while labor costs are steady. The price of building materials has gone up with wood products

leading the way. Despite that increased cost, Weyer said permits issued for single-family homes are about t o take off in Canton because of increased lot availability. H e points to several new subdivisions leading the way. Heron Ridge North sits in Cantons northwest corner, while Antique Forrest is more centrally located at Ford and Beck roads. Cherry Hill Village, a neo-traditional mixture of single-family homes, condominiums and commercial facilities, is moving into phase three of development In-fill development is also picking up, Weyer said. "There's a lot of re-development going on along Saltz Road f r o m Canton Center past Beck Road in the west, h e added. 'These types of developments can range from a half-dozen h o m e s to 25 or 3 0 homes."

Daycare intruder Township man may have had death wish BY TONY BRUSCATO STAFF WRITER

A Plymouth Township man, w h o may have had a death wish, was shot arid killed w h e n h e scuffled with police after barging into t h e daycare center Friday morning at the Church of the Nazarene o n A n n Arbor Road. Plymouth Township Police Chief Tom Tiderington said 35-year-old Robert Van Buren was shot and killed by police after two law enforcement officers tried unsuccessfully t o subdue the suspect with a Taser gun. Tiderington said there were a b o u t 10 children and three female workers at N e w Horizons daycare when Van Buren — who reportedly was talking incoherently — entered t h e building shortly before the 8:13 a.m. emergency call to t h e 9-1-1 dispatch center. "He was m e t by a school administrator, and she attempted to keep h i m from coming into the building," Tiderington said. "At the same time, she notified a co-worker to call police.

chard looking forward o another crazy convention

y

im Blanchard r e m e m b e r s how h a r d h e f o u g h t to get to his first Democratic National Convention. He drove to United Auto Workers' h e a d q u a r t e r s in Detroit, slipped past a security guard, and sat for hours in t h e outer office of Millie Jeffries, a UAW vice president in charge of hiring pages. That was 1064, the year of Lyndon Baines Johnson's famous coronation in Atlantic City. ?I really wanted to get to t h a t convention," Said t h e f u t u r e governor, w h o was in t h e midst Of getting ready for this week's gathering of the Democratic clans in Boston. When she finally showed up, she n o t e d that h e was a little old to be a page, b u t was impressed by his eagerness. "She asked me if I supported civil rights. I was amazed. 'Of course — doesn't every Democrat?'" he said. The elfin Millie smiled. Well, he h a d a lot to learn . But he got in, a n d the experience helped hook him on politics for life. "One night Bernie Klein and I were going for a walk and we saw Jack Adlai Stevenson. Adlai Stevenson! I had h a n d e d out leaflets f o r him in f o u r t h grade." He ran u p to h i m a n d i n t r o d u c e d himself to his hero, who a d d r e s s e d him gravely as "old man." College a n d law school k e p t Blanchard away f r o m t h e next two conventions, which were two of t h e party's m o s t disastrous. But he's been going ever since, as congressman, governor, leader of t h e Bill Clinton forces in t h e state and, finally, as sort of an elder statesman. And he still loves every m i n u t e of th em, as his wife J a n e t noted with some amusement. "He'll be swinging f r o m t h e rafters next week," she chuckled. "The conventions have changed," Blanchard said, noting that national conventions once actually chose the party candidates and that, until recently, delegates arrived having no idea who their vice presidential candidate would be. Conventions past have seen titanic struggles over the party's positions — the so-called "platform" — with roll call debates on issues ranging f r o m civil rights to Vietnam to whether to seat a state delegation deemed to be insufficiently diverse or improperly chosen. "Now, they are all sort of coronations," said Blanchard, who says h e is nevertheless excited, in part because h e t h i n k s his party's ticket of John Kerry and J o h n Edwards "is maybe the strongest we've h a d in 4 0 years." That may be debatable; w h a t is not is t h a t for many of the delegates (and the press)

national conventions these days are in m a n y respects much more like high school reunions t h a n anything else. Politicians and reporters see old friends they haven't seen in four years; relive old battles; open new bottles. "You have to pace yourself," Blanchard said. You can easily spend all day talking politics and listening to speeches on the convention floor, and all night going f r o m hotel to hotel and party to party. Conventions are still politically worthwhile, he notes, because they serve two other key purposes: To introduce the party's candidates to the American people, m a n y of w h o m have, until now, been paying scant attention to t h e process, and also to fire u p the delegates to work h a r d for the ticket. The best recent example of that was probably 1992, when Bill Clinton arrived at the convention trailing both President Bush a n d H. Ross Perot, and left the clear front-runner. Four years ago, the convention was duller, b u t delegates still talk about the startlingly passionate kiss between A1 a n d Tipper Gore. Most conventions produce some memorable moments; Mario Cuomo's famous speech in 1984; Clinton's famously long and boring speech in 1988; and the bizarre scene in 1980 when Jimmy Carter seemed to be chasing Ted Kennedy around the platform, trying futilely for the traditional victory embrace. Democrats, who tend to be a more unruly lot than Republicans, have also h a d their presidential campaigns ruined by conventions. The worst of all time was the 1924 convention in New York City, when a deadlocked convention continued for three weeks and 104 ballots, until the nomination itself was worthless. The ultimate modern horrors were 1968 in Chicago, when out-of-control cops tear-gassed and clubbed demonstrators and delegates, a n d 1972, when anarchy prevailed; vice presidential votes w^re actually cast for Mao Tse-tung, and the nominee didn't get to speak till 3 a.m. — prime time only on Guam. Back then, networks prided themselves on so-called "gavel-to-gavel" coverage. Sadly, that's now a thing of the past. The m a j o r networks plan to show only three hours of coverage all week. That won't present many opportunities for the 155 Michigan delegates to see themselves in prime time. Yet questions remain. Will John Kerry finally electrify people? Will A1 Sharpton behave? Will Michigan's two party chairmen, who loathe each other, make nice for the cameras? Despite all the pre-packaging, something fascinating or bizarre is b o u n d to happen. W i t h Democrats, it nearly always does. Jack Lessenberry is editorial vice president of HomeTown Communications. He can be reached by phone at (248) 9012561 or by e-mail at [email protected]

his weekend my wife and I will be enjoying the beaches, bikeways and small towns along Lake Michigan. It is an annual ritual with suburban Detroit residents dating from the late 1800s, when trains ran regular schedules from Detroit to Traverse City, Petoskey and the Mackinac Straits. The sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, the rocky shores of Lake Huron and the wilderness reaches of Lake Superior are a welcome respite from everyday (S. & J MeBut we don t have to travel that far to appreciate the real value of our special position at the center of the Great Lakes. We need only drive over to the Detroit River and down to Lake Erie to see how we depend on these lakes for water to drink, to irrigate fields, generate power, transport raw materials, provide for a rich diversity of fish and as a playground for boaters. These lakes are our treasure. They are the reason that every suggestion for the state's quarter included Michigan's unique outline of two peninsulas defined by the lakes and why Gov. Jennifer Granholm chose the design which included all five Great Lakes. Even if we never boat or fish or own property along these lakes, they are a vital part of who we are. This past Monday, the Council of Great Lakes Governors and Canadian Premiers agreed on a draft proposal to protect Great Lakes waters from being siphoned away to other parts of the country or the world. The agreement requires that all eight Great Lakes ^states — Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York — must agree to any out-of-basin diversions of more than 1 million gallons of water per day. The agreement also would allow three states to veto any in-basin use of more than 5 million gallons a day. The premiers of Ontario and Quebec have agreed to the pact. Hearings are scheduled throughout the state to explain the agreement, which requires the approval all the state Legislatures and Congress. The nearest is 2 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Michigan Library in Lansing. The Great Lakes Charter was formed in 1985 to protect Great Lakes waters from diversion by the parched southwest and plains states. It was a minor issue during the last presidential election, when George W. Bush mused that such a diversion might be necessary someday. This year, it was candidate Sen. John Kerry who was caught off-guard and mused similarly. Last week on a visit to the

Only Michigan has failed to act. state, Vice President Dick Cheney promised that the president would "never" allow the diversion of Great Lakes water, showing that , some lessons do get learned. Water diversion has become a bit of a politi* cal football in Michigan. ; Since 1985, seven of the Great Lakes states and Ontario and Quebec have drawn up legislation to regulate large withdrawals of water. Only Michigan has failed to a c t Granholm not moving on a number of bills introduced earlier this year to protect the state's waters. GOP leaders respond that Granholm hasn't been working with them to get the bills moved and they are critical of some items that they feel will have a negative impact on business. What is clear is that our current laws do not adequately protect our water supply. Legal questions have been raised about whether a governor has the power to restrict diversion of water. T h e Great Lakes Charter draft proposal would make it difficult to nearly impossible to. divert water, while at the same time provide a | legal process that would probably pass muster. This should not be an issue that divides on party lines. Republican Majority Leader Ken Sikkma has been sensitive to envrionmental « issues. It's definitely time for the governor and the opposition to quit spitting and take u p a comprehensive program to protect the state's surface and groundwater supply and to sign on quickly to the draft proposal to prevent diversion from the Great Lakes.

M u c h like eight-track tapes, t h e Bee Gees and the video game "Pong," modified-pitch softball thrived in t h e Observerland area d u r i n g the late-70s a n d early-80s. But now, 25 years later, the sport is facing t h e same unfortun a t e demise as t h e previously m e n t i o n e d attractions. Modified-pitch softball is best described as slow-pitch softball with some spice. Pitchers cannot use a windmill delivery like in fast-pitch softball, b u t they can still generate 7 0 - m p h pitches with the straight-back and straight-forward style that is allowed. "I like modified because it's a lot more like regular baseball t h a n slow-pitch softball," said Livonia resident Rick Williamson, w h o h a s played modified for t h e past 33 years. "You can b u n t , steal bases, hit a n d r u n , a lot of things t h a t aren't allowed in slow-pitch softball. The g a m e is a lot quicker, too. It takes a b o u t a n h o u r a n d 10 minutes to play seven innings in modified." Judging by t h e steadily decreasing n u m b e r of active teams playing in t h e area, modified-pitch softball is a dying sport. Just 2 0 years ago, t h e r e were 16 t e a m s playing in the Plymouth league and over 3 0 competing in Livonia. Currently, there are 13 t e a m s playing i n b o t h leagues combined (four in Plymouth a n d nine in Livonia). "Unfortunately, t h e Plymouth league is in danger of getting canceled altogether," said J o h n Cunningham, a veteran of 36 modified seasons. "The rec d e p a r t m e n t h a s an eight-team slowpitch league t h a t would like t o take over Massey Field next year. If we can't find m o r e teams, modified will probably b e eliminate, which w o u l d b e a terrible thing." Why is modified-pitch softball fading from the sports landscape? "I think t h e n u m b e r one reason is because younger kids aren't playing baseball as m u c h as they used to," Williamson said. "There are m o r e a n d m o r e kids playing sports like soccer and golf, so they're steering away from sports like modified. Then w h e n they get older and they w a n t t o play softball, it's much easier t o hit t h e ball in slow-pitch t h a n it is in our sport."

Detroit Lions strength-a nd-conditioning coach Jason Arapoff offered the following tips for high school footbali players who are gearing up for practices beginning Aug. 9: • Hydration - "Staying p r o p e r l y hydrated is very important. Drink a lot of water before, during and after practices." • frequently - "Get m o r e rest t h a n you think you need. Get off your feet after practice." • Eat right - "Eat three square meals a day w i t h healthy snacks in between. You should eat at least five pieces of fruit a day and t h r e e t o four servings of vegetables." • Sleep is vital - "Once practice starts, t r y t o go t o bed at t h e same t i m e every night, the earlier the better. Try t o develop a regular sleep routine." '

"Look at Boss Bailey over there," Arapoff said, gesturing in the direction of the Lions' second-year linebacker. "It's the middle of July and he's in here working his tail off. My job is to maximize the players' ability, but their dedication to getting better makes my job easier." Each of the lions players has a specific workout plan developed by Arapoff.

L

ong after the excitement of competition has subsided and-the'smoke has cleared, the official results are in for the 91st Annual Greater Detroit Bowling Association championship tournament. While the allocated space on this page would not accommodate all of the winners and those who cashed, the following is a list of bowlers from the Observer & Eccentric cities who finished in the top 10 in any category they would be competing in.

New guidelines slash LDLs

I

'm always on the lookout

for tips on better health. They're everywhere lately. For instance, the following "Make Time for Fitness" tips flashed across the Pacific Bell Park scoreboard between innings at a recent San Francisco Giants game. Park two walks away — Park your car far enough away from your job, the mall or even the ballpark to get in a good walk when you arrive and another when you leave. While you're in the swing — While there, walk for 20 minutes (or for 10 minutes twice) without stopping, throw in a bit of stair climbing and you will have invested at least a half-hour's time toward better health. When you reach home — Instead of sitting down when you return home, take just one more brisk 10-minute walk and you're on your way to a healthier tomorrow. The U.S. Surgeon General says we can all stayfitwith just 30 minutes of moderate exercise cumulative each day. I think it's worth it to get out there and walk. And please remember to take care of your health before it's lonngggg gone!

'Most of the people in the heart world had been talking about achieving lower LDLs for some time.'

BY U N D A ANN CHOMiN STAFF WRITER

Researchers have finally proven what Dr. Stephen Smith suspected* Guidelines for low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol were set too high, and those at high risk for heart attack and death from cardiovascular disease could benefit from drug-lowering therapy and living a healthier lifestyle. Based on the July 13 release of updated recommendations from the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), Smith is suggesting everyone check their numbers, especially LDLs.

Dr. Stephen Smith cardiologist

"I can remember talking about it at conferences for 4-5 years, but we didn't have evidence. What makes sense isn't always the way it works out in clinical trial. There was worry about certain types of cancer and intracranial hemorrhage with statin drugs like Pravachol. And there was concern for not just risks, but costs. When you apply therapy to millions of people, overall cost goes up. You might apply this intensive therapy and exclude other treatments. You want to make sure there's the potential to improve quality and quantity of life. It's important to be prudent iti offering therapies."

NCEP was founded in 1985 by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and National Institutes of Health to raise awareness of high blood cholesterol as a risk factor for coronary heart disease. After reviewing the results of recent clinical trials, the report in "Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association" says cholesterol lowering drug therapy does benefit patients at high risk, and that lifestyle changes remain essential in management. Based on new clinical evidence, there is a one percent reduction in cardiac events for one milligram of LDL lowered.

Ernie Harwell, "the voice of the Detroit Tigers" for more than four decades, retired after 55 years behind a major league microphone. Today, at age 86, Ernie's days are filled with serving as a health and fitness advocate for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, public appearances, writing, traveling and taking long walks with "Miss Luiu," his wife of more than 60 years. His latest book, a collection of his baseball columns titled Life After Baseball, is available at local bookstores or by calling (800) 245-5082.

Smith selects therapies for his patients only after categorizing their coronary heart risk as low, moderate, high, or very high. Now he can add the lipid risk factor to the fact he's never had a patient die from lipid lowering before deciding on treatment. He says the risk of taking cholesterol lowering drugs is small compared to the risk of dying from a heart attack.

"Most of the people in the heart world had been talking about achieving lower LDLs for some time," said Smith, a Birmingham cardiologist on staff at Henry Ford Hospital.

"It's important to have a risk

assessment," said Smith. "When someone walks into your office you try to get them into a category. I suggest if people have concerns to have a cardiovascular specialist risk stratify them. That's separate from evaluating them for symptoms like chest pain. Risk is when you'smoke, have physical inactivity. Risk is based on presence or absence of vascular disease, if you had a heart attack or stroke. Very high might include those with coronary heart risks like blocked arteries in legs, aneurysm in aorta, prior heart attack, diabetic, smoke, hypertensive, low H D L (good cholesterol), family history - a male with a first degree relative age 55 or less who had heart attacks, for female under the age of 65." Dr. Douglas Westveer stratifies his patients for risk as well. The new guidelines will help reinforce his recommendation for high riskheart patients to consider cholesterol lowering medication for LDLs higher t h a n 100 mg. "They lowered LDL from 130 to 100 mg per deciliter for

high risk, 70 for people at very high risk of heart attack or death," said Westveer, director of cardiology at Beaumont Hospital in Troy. "Treatment carries some small but some risk, and is recommended for only those in need of cholesterol lowering drugs. "Healthy or low risk is still less than 160 but should be less than 130. For those with high blood pressure or family history but haven't developed cardiovascular disease, it's 100; for those at high risk of another heart attack or bypass surgery, 70. Very few can do it on diet alone. That comes out of studies." Westveer, on the other hand, points out hardening of the arteries is exclusively human. "Other mammals have LDLs around 60 and underdeveloped countries where arteriosclerosis doesn't exist, around 60 to 70. That caused researchers torevisit the numbers," said Westveer of Oxford."Exercise and good diet are essential. In the vast majority of the public who are eating sensibly, exercising and

dieting is enough. For people at established and high risk of disease it's not. The use of these drugs is genetically determined. These drugs are powerful and very low risk. "Remember every risk factor for heart attack is a risk factor for stroke. When patients don't want to reduce their risk factors I remind them of stroke." Westveer takes Lipitor to combat four heart risks - high blood pressure, his age - 55, the fact that he's male and has a family history. "Most people do want to take care of themselves. They strive very hard and just can't do it," said Westveer. "The comparison I use is seat belts. Some have been badly injured b u t that's an exception. You never know what's going to happen on a car ride. "There have been deaths with Lipitor but it has to be balanced. It's a common sense approach. I watch my diet. You can't rely on the drugs. Higher dosage brings with it higher side effects." [email protected] | (734)953-2145

lower bad cholesterol BY LINDA ANN CHOMIN STAFF WRITER

No matter whether your risk factor for heart disease is high or low, Birmingham cardiologist Stephen Smith says everyone benefits f r o m making or sustaining healthy lifestyle choices. "I'm always talking to patients about therapeutic lifestyle change but they don't always listen to what I say," said Dr. Smith who's on staff at Henry Ford Hospital. "That includes people who are overweight to obese, sedentary. We live in a state that's fat. Lose ^eight. Control diabetes which is very often accomplished with weight control, and conijrol blood pressure. Having a blood pressure of 160 over 100 fen't a good idea. It exposes

you to a higher risk. Active smoking is a potent risk factor especially with coronary artery disease. "I always tell people don't smoke, lose weight, control diabetes. This is what we always said, even with the guy that doesn't have coronary artery disease." Smith believes communicating with patients does help them understand the importance of reducing risks. He suggests developing a rapport with your practitioner, for physicians - sit down for a one on one to achieve targets based on lifestyle - and set a good example. Smith runs on a treadmill and eats healthy. "I know that people sometimes don't listen to me, don't tell me the truth or take their medications," said Smith. "I

want to see patients who have a commitment, aren't in denial." Like Smith, Dr. Douglas Westveer believes cholesterol lowering medication is just part of the solution. Westveer, an Oxford resident, walks briskly four days a week and stays close to ideal body weight. "People have to stop smoking. It's more important than cholesterol in preventing heart disease," said Westveer, director of cardiology at Beaumont Hospital in Troy. "I don't want people to think that all they have to do is have a low cholesterol. "Couch potatoes and junkaholics can change. Exercise and diet have so many other benefits than heart health."

Sometimes, but fortunately not too often, Sjogrens causes a numbness in the hands and feet, kidney pain and an inflamed liver. Rheumatologists are particularly sensitive to Sjogrens because it frequently accompanies rheumatoid arthritis. What ties these diverse effects of Sjogrens together is antibody production. For' unclear reasons, people with Sjogrens Syndrome make antibodies to tissues in the body that secrete fluids. In the eye, it is the lacrimal gland, in the mouth, the antibodies are directed against the parotid gland. In the throat and lung the targets are cells that line the trachea. In the joints, the cells affected secrete joint fluid. Treatment attempts to substitute for the fluids loss: using eye drops, drinking a lot of water, or taking medicine that stimulate the glands remaining to work harder. If you have rheumatoid arthritis, treating it, also helps.

The combination of dry eyes and dry mouth is called Sjogrens Syndrome. You notice the dryness because your eyes feel gritty in the morning and irritated throughout the day. If you wear contact lenses and develop Sjogrens, you can no longer apply the contacts easily and wearing them Injures the eye. Sjogrens carries with it a host of problems, I already mentioned the dry mouth which makes chewing food difficult and promotes dental cavities no matter how scrupulous you are in caring for your teeth. Other features of Sjogrens includes a dry throat and cough, swelling of the lymph nodes in your neck, enlargement of your salivary glands.

at the heart of Tudor style Ascot Brick walls and half-timbering in the gables would be enough to establish the Ascot's Tudor styling. But massive medieval chimneys, ribbons of small paned windows, and an bay window at center on the second floor complete the image. A large kitchen packed with modern conveniences is at the heart of the Ascot. Features include double ovens, microwave, dishwasher, walkin pantry, and an island with a cook top and grill. Breakfasting in the sunny octagonal nook starts your day on a cheerful note. Formal dining takes place in the spacious vaulted dining room. A second floor balcony overlooks this bright space, and French doors open onto a dining deck. The elegant lobby is also vaulted. Stairs here lead to a second floor landing with a railed balcony facing the entrance. A small den or office is to the left, and a stately vaulted living room with fireplace is to the right. Stairs in the lobby are not

FLEXIBILITY

frenzied domestic focus, lacked sufficient awareness of people outside of their home zones to ask about a brother's work, or even his life. What do people fear in communicating with others? Will the bewildered, angry husbandfindout that the woman he Dr. Gulp recommends "Just Enough: married has changed Tools for creating success In your irreparably? Will he work and life." A book by Laura learn that she worked Nash and Howard Stevenson. as long as she did because it was stylish j and expected, rather than being driven by a need to contribute something outside of the domesticfront?Why aren't they negotiating circumstances that will create a win-win instead of living a win-lose? If their relationship > has a strong foundation, the couple and their children will survive this crisis. The burden of facing years as a sole provider when the foundation of the relationship was a work-based partnership ought to spur the man to action. Personal and )usiness partnerships are dynamic. Throwing up your lands and giving up when one of the partners changes places the objective of "just enough" in another galaxy.
