3 A2(W) The Observer &Eceenirlct THURSDAY, JULY 29,1999 from page Al sqme of the lost revenue we've experienced over the years due to Proposal A,* Baracy said Tuesday.. ^onie meeting watchers said Bpracy's statements on Monday gave the impression that Wayne- Westland, alone, stood to gain npm the money. "This additional $5 million w{jold have allowed us to function normally for another year or two," Baracy said later. '"Now we will have to reassess our financial situation, continue to tighten our belt and certainly not expand programs." But state Sen. Loren Bennett, R^Canton Township, said during a telephone interview Tuesday tliat Wayne-Westland was only oiie of several districts that stood td.share the $10 million. ;"That y/as hot all earmarked for Wayne-Westland," Bennett said. JDven so, he said, "t was something certainly lobbied for, but ultimately the governor had the right to veto it," Jn a July 19 letter to House legislators, Engler said he vetoed the $10 million in special revenue because it violated the intent of Proposal A to provide equitable funding for school dis r tricts. "Every time you give more to one district," Bennett said, "you have to give less to somebody.else." / v.".\,-/, v/''. He said the governor and 6th; ers believed that "it wasn't in the spirit of Proposal A to do that." Bennett said he managed to get some extra aid for Wayne- Westland in but return trips to the money counter haven't been as successful. Baracy contended that the latest $10 million would've come from a $350 million school aid surplus fund,, "and it wouldn't have hurt anybody." Despite Baracy's concerns about declining finances, he said in June that parents and students shouldn't worry that a new era of massive program cuts is imminent. Moreover, he said district officials will continue their fight in Lansing for what they consider an unfair school-funding system. "We will continue to work with our legislators when the next school aid bill comes up," he said."we will need the help of all Our legislators.* PLACES &FACES Rallroadiana '.

Sketch released of robbery suspect BY LEANNE ROGERS STAFK WRTER Police have released a sketch of a man being sought in connection with the July 15 abduction and armed robbery of an elderly couple. The suspect was described as a light complexioned black male, 25 years oldi 5 feet 10'inches tall, and a slim build. He was described as having a small mustache and a little hair on his chin.

The man was in his car reading while his wife was inside the store shopping. The suspect, armed with a short dark revolver, got into the back seat. The suspect wanted the man's ATM card, Lindman said, but the man didn't have one. "The suspect had the Victim drive away. They stopped at Ann Arbor Trail and Middlebelt and switched places^' said Lindman. With the suspect at the wheel, the men returned to Kroger and. picked up the man's wife.

5 A4(W) The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1899 BY MARE CHE>STNEY STAFF WRTER During the coming school year, Cleveland will become the. only elementary in the Livonia Public Schools to have more than'one Student Assistance Family Education teacher on staff to help students struggling with personal or school-related problems. Twelve elementaries will have one full-time SAFE teacher; nine elementaries will have just a half-time SAFE teacher. A shift in the way SAFE teachers are allocated led to adding an extra half-time SAFE teacher to the 5'70.-student Cleveland Elementary, on Cathedral Street, just west of nkster Road in southeast Livonia. The addition comes at the expense of Adams Elementary on Lyndon, which will see its SAFE staff drop. Adams SAFE ii - wiaim r -Treceives additional SAFE teacher teacher Lynn Ross will now spend half her time at Adams, and half her time at Cleveland, said Paul Derwick, director of elementary instruction. She joins Marion Kocian, the current Cleveland SAFE teacher. This past school year, the district used Michigan Educational Assessment Program scores and building size to determine where SAFE teachers would be stationed. n , there were 12 full-time SAFE teachers and 10 half-time SAFE teachers in the 22 elementaries. This year's allocation shift came about because of a change inthe criteria. ""Cleveland is the neediest school, based on this criteria," Derwick said. The new criteria dwells less on MEAP scores and more on family income and the number of children in the school who come from non-traditional families, he said. LVONA The sometimes-controversial SAFE program for elementary students has existed in Livonia since At that time, the district moved many of its psychologists, social workers and special education teachers into this umbrella program, which is based on a nationally acclaimed program called Quest. n classroom lessons, group sessions or one-on-one counseling, SAFE teachers help students who have personal, schoolrelated, behavioral, socialadjustment or family problems, said Robert Dietiker, director of student services.. "They get support in times of divorce, family illness or death," Dietiker said. "When we intervene early, we get less emotionally impaired kids later on. We saw the special education population growing in Livonia in the 1980s. So we converted psychologists to SAFE teachers. f these students are not helped, they will be unsuccessful learners, adults and parents.". Since its launching in Livonia, critics have said the program takes away from elass time for those students who don't need the help. Others want schools to stick to the basics and leave social problems to outside-the-sthool psychologists. The nine elementaries with a half-time- SAFE teacher arc those schools with fewer students, Derwick said. "Fewer kids means fewer problems," he added. Parents who object to the program can opt to not have their children participate, Dietiker said. However, very few parents choose that option, he said. State asked to make decision regarding wetlands By RCHARD PEARL STAFF WRTER An environmental activist has asked the state to determine whether the owner of property just west of the Holliday Park Nature Preserve has cleared regulated wetlands. A wooded section of from nine to 12 acres has been cleared, said Bill Craig, president of the Holliday Park Nature Preserve Association. The property was cleared by J.A. Bloch & Co., which manages the land for the partnership owning it. "They left the big trees" but cleared the ground around them, he said. "The only way the preserve could hav»e grown was into that property," Craig said. "t's the last piece of property that could have been added" to the 540-acre preserve, he said. f protected wetlands are involved, "They should have saved some of the natural features. They should have seen if it was regulated" before doing anything. Craig said he's asked the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to find out if the cleared area is Wetlands and if they should have been cleared. "The MDEQ will be out there checking that," Craig said. According to state law, no permission was needed to do the clearing, as long as' no trees six inches in diameter or larger were cut, said Sue Folsom of the Canton Township engineering department. A property owner can clear regulated wetlands, she said, but no tree stumps can be removed, no land-filling done and no earth removed from the site. Not involved Burton-Katzman Development Co. of Bingham Farms, the developer of the new Koppernick Corporate Park west of the cleared area, was not involved in it, said company spokesman Chuck DiMaggio. The firm owns only the land west of Commerce Drive, which leads into the development. The MDEQ office in Livonia could not be reached for comment Friday. Craig said he "can certainly understand" how Canton Township would want the industrial corridor developed as a tax base. But "This is prime natural habitat, not one of the corn fields anymore." Craig wants to know if "there any regulated wetlands in there that can be saved?' Site mitigation may be the next step, he said. However, mitigation doesn't always work, he said, and "As we'lose real wetlands for mitigated ones that don't work, we lose water quality." Folsom of Canton Township said mitigation will happen only if Bloch seeks to develop the property. Then, she said, the state will require Bloch to set aside, as a permanent wetlands, more property than the amount cleared. The Holliday association opposed development in the area because development will ultimately affect "the quality of our river system/' Craig said. Vernal ponds Craig described the area in question as "a complex of vernal ponds" - spring ponds caused by rain and melting snow "which are a value for amphibians and other creatures that need that type of habitat." He said the loss of wetlands "is an example of the consequences of urban sprawl and. the consequences of development.

6 m mm The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY A5 Reform supporters leery of money's impact on politics By KKN ABRAMCZYK STAFF WRTER Joyce Russell believes money wields too much influence in politics. Campaign fund-raising brings millions to candidates from businesses, special interest groups and unions, and gives them resources to advertise on television and get their message out for several months. That money can lead to buying influence and makes it harder for lessor known candidates not backed by traditional political machines to be elected because they cannot afford political advertising. t makes Reform Party delegates like Russell wonder why. "f money is considered freedom of speech, then what freedom -do poor people have?" Russell asked. "t shouldn't cost so much for elections. They take too long each year." Russell of Northville represented the 13th Congressional District, which contains Canton, Garden City, Livonia, Plymouth and Westland, and part of western Wayne and Washtenaw counties. Russell attended last weekend's convention for the Reform Party in Dearborn. Reform Party delegates each cite the same issues - Campaign finance reform. The national debt. Term limits. Matt Abel, a delegate for 1.1th District, which includes Redford Township and much of Oakland County, believes Congressional members from the two parties do not tell the truth when it comes to discussing the nation's economics.."'all this talk of a surplus is a bunch of hooey," Abel said. The national debt went up, and they usq fictitious accounting when they discuss the debt." Reform Party members want to balance the budget and pay oft" the debt, one of the reasons Abel supports the party. Abel is a former Democrat, but joined the Reform Party because J it is not controlled by the UAW, and it is not controlled by the chamber of commerce/abel said. Abel also grew tired of what he called "obfuscation" by government officials. "We need to get our economy back on a strong foundation. We're almost $6 trillion in debt." Perry Spencer, chair of the Reform Party of Michigan, believes citizens want more control of government through government reforms. "Campaign finance is being abused," Spencer said. Lobbyists spend absurd amounts of money to buy influence and "shut people out" from the process, Spencer said. Free trade agreements may have added jobs, but.nianufa'cturing jobs are being lost, Spencer said. "What kinds of jobs are we redeveloping? Most are low-paying, service-industry jobs," Spencer said. The party has been helped by Jesse Ventura's election as governor of Minnesota last year. "t brought us back into the forefront of attention," Spencer said. "Because a third-party candidate can win a major election, every' one has to take us seriously." See REFORM, A7 How Reform stands on major issues Here is a summary of where the Reform Party stands on. issues, according to literature distributed at its national convention in Dearborn last weekend and the group's Web site: Social Security: Fulfills the promises of the old system. Phases out the pay-as-you-go system and creates a system of private accounts that are federally supervised, but individually controlled. Tax reform: Eliminate the nternal Revenue Service and raise sufficient revenue for government to perform its assigned tasks in a simple and fair fashion; Budget: Pass a Balanced Budget Amendment. Pay down the federal debt until the principal balance is zero and American taxpayers no longer have to pay interest on the debt. End corporate welfare and special interest subsidies. Campaign finance reform: Vigorously enforce current campaign finance laws. Change the composition of the Elections Commission to include independent and non-partisan representation. Campaigns should include free and equal access to the media resources for all qualified candidates. Outlaw political action committees. il'i'tii minis, institute term limits on the U.S. House of Representatives for thr.ee terms; two terms for the Senate.

8 The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1999 k A7 Fund-raiser: Sister M. Lauriana Gruszcynski of Madonna University and LawrenceB. Avison, the first executive director of the Michigan Colleges Foundation. Delegates split on choice for chair BY KEN ABRAMCZYK STAFK WRTER The Reform Party delegate for the 11th Congressional District thought Jack Gargan was a good choice to become the party's national chairman. "At least the party is no longer perceived as being controlled 'by Ross-Perot,"'said Matt Abel of West Bloomfield, The 11th District includes Redford Township and much of Oakland County. Abel and about,350 other delegates convened in Dearborn last weekend as Gargan, a retired financial consultant from Florida, was chosen as chairman on.sunday. For the delegates and party leaders, the convention in Dearborn was a weekend well spent. " think everyone worked hard," said Joyce Russell of Northvilie. Russell represented the 13th Congressional District, which contains Canton, Garden City, Livonia, Plymouth and Westland, and part of western Wayne and Washtenaw counties. "We had different opinionsabout who should be chairman." Russell said. " voted for Pat Benjamin and was disappointed that she didn't win."' Russell liked Benjamin's experience. " wasn't suspicious of her agenda," Russell said. But Abel and Perry Spencer, state party chairman, looked forward to Gargan's chairmanship. Abel said there was "nothing against" Ross Perot, former' Reform Party 'presidential candidate, by the delegates in the choice of Gargan, but Benjamin's support from Perot backers deterred Abel from supporting her. " think what's happening hi the party is getting its wings," Abel said. Gargan is a "good face" for the party and getting the message to Americans, Spencer-said. vice honored as fund-raiser Sister M. Lauriana Gruszcynski, vice president for university advancement at Madonna University, was given at distinguished service award at the Michigan Colleges Foundation's annual meeting on Mackinac sland in June. Sister Lauriana received the award from William Liebold in recognition of.40 years of fund-raising activity. The Michigan Colleges Foundation, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, was founded in 1949 to raise funds from business and industry to support Michigan's independent liberal arts colleges. As Sister Lauriana was presented the award, Liebold noted that this year also marked another very special anniversary for the nun, her 60th year in religious life as a Felician Sister. "We. are very proud of Sister Lauriana's commitment on Now you can earn" competitive on a eonserva behalf of Michigan Colleges Foundation," said- Liebold. "Madonna University has been a member of MCF since 1952 and has played an important role in our success in making a significant impact of the lives of the students served by our 14 member institutions." n her acceptance, Sister Lauriana expressed gratitude to all those who worked with her over the years, sharing their fundraising techniques. She attributed her success to the Felician Sisters, especially their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela. Sister Lauriana's efforts have resulted in the successful completion of major campaigns including a $4.5 million library and classroom addition ; a $2.5 million, educational development center ; and a $10 million nvestors in Academic Excellence Campaign from Reform from page A5 Russell considers herself an original member of United We Stand and supported Ross Perot's presidential run. The rfiedia and general public seem to be caught up in celebrities," Russell said. "Jesse got us a lot of publicity when he got elected. During that election we couldn't buy publicity. "We've had people in the trenches for a long time working all along." Spencer expects the party will pursue a "grass-roots" approach in seeking support for a Reform Party candidate in the city council race in Ann Arbor. A former member of the Republican Party, Spencer describes himself as a fiscal conservative. He sought another party when he saw that attempts at campaign finance reform failed. That's why Spencer and the Fed contracting class offered Tax-Deferred Fixed Annuity liti Current first-year rate * ncludes 3% bonus. returns 'investment,'with the Huntington Access +2 Annuity.

About 200,000 motorists who travel each day can expect to be driving on the new southbound lanes today. Those four lanes and two shoulders, fresh with new concrete poured this spring and summer, now will handle both northbound and southbound travelers. The northbound lanes will be closed for reconstruction as the freeways four lanes and two shoulders will be rebuilt, along with entrance and exit ramps and bridge decks. The traffic shift also means the $49 million project to repave Michigan's second busiest freeway is nearing its halfway point, just about on schedule to be completed by late October. "We're pleased with that," said Robin Pannecouk, spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Transportation. Southbound traffic will be switched to three lanes on the southbound side. Large rectangular concrete blocks used to create a barrier wall will be moved from the northbound side of the freeway to the southbound side over the next five days, then the northbound traffic will be crossed over to its three lanes. That crossover route of northbound runs just north of the Five Mile overpass to just north of the 10 Mile Road bridge. Like the earlier crossover, motorists can use three lanes of traffic in each direction for travel. Other project highlights nclude: 5 The- 7 Mile entrance and exit ramps on the southbound side of were expected to be reopened, weather permitting, last night (Wednesday). The exit ramp from westbound to southbound may be opened as early as today, but the construction configuration of lanes on will allow for only one lane of traffic from to merge. Motorists from eastbound 1-96, 12 Mile Road and M-5 also access southbound in that area. THE BG SWTCH The Haggerty Connector detour will be closed for modifications for several days. MDOT expects to use the ramp from and the modified detour to direct traffic to southbound Motorists should doublecheck construction signs. The Haggerty Connector between 12 Mile and 14 Mile will be open the first week of August. Lanes will be reduced from two to one on eastbound 1-96 to southbound in Oakland Countv and westbound 1-96 to northbound in Livonia. M-14 motorists exiting to northbound lanes, will not see lane reductions there, but they can expect backups. Starting in mid-september., interchanges at Six, Seven and Eight Mile will be closed for reconstruction uf entrance and exit ramps, but not simultaneously. That means when Six - Mile is svorked on by contractors, Seven Mile and Eight Mile will remain open. "They can expect the northbound side to mirror the southbound construction," Pannecouk said. Bridge repairs on the northbound side will force lane reductions at bridge locations at the interchanges at Six Mile, Seven Mile and Eight Mile. MDOT also was expected to decide within the next few days how traffic from northbound will be directed to eastbound "That ramp will be reconstructed, and it will have the same impact on motorists that the ramp (from westbound to southbound 1-275) had when it was reconstructed," Pannecouk said. MDOT is looking at temporary routes or'short detours for those motorists. "That information should be detailed within the next week," Pannecouk said. Pannecouk advised motorists to watch the speed limit of 50 miles per hour in the construction zone and read construction signs to aid commuters in getting to their destinations. They should listen for radio updates and read newspaper accounts to keep updated, she added. "Stay tuned so you aren't surprised by any traffic switches," Pannecouk said. yvays to jump start your career. Compute?

12 The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1999 k AU Woodward desig Heritage Route DETROT, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has designated Woodward Avenue, rich in history and culture, as a Michigan Heritage Route. A ceremony officially honoring one of Michigan's best known roadways will be held on 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, at Pleasant Ridge Memorial Park (Woodward Avenue and Oakland Park Boulevard). Paul Tait, executive director of SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, will host the ceremony. MDOT Director James DeSana will make remarks and reveal the official designation road signs. Representatives from Detroit, Wayne County and Oakland County and communities along Woodward Avenue.will also be in attendance. Oakland and Wayne Counties, in.cooperation with SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, the Woodward Avenue Action Association and 10 Woodward Avenue communities from Detroit to Pontiac, submitted the nomination to MDOT late in As a Michigan Heritage Route, a management structure representative of those communities will be put in place to formulate marketing plans, special events and physical improvements for all 28 miles of Woodward. The Michigan Heritage Route Program was legislatively mandated to identify, protect, enhance and promote the unique scenic, historical and recreational qualities of state roads. Along with the. many benefits of preservation and education, a Heritage Route can provide economic benefit by stimulating tourism, attracting business and adding weight to grant applications. Michigan has seven designated routes, with several others pending approval. "Designation as a Michigan Heritage Route signifies that those living and working within the communities'that the corridor encompasses have dedicated liit-ifioerv es to conserving, enhancing and promoting their area as a unique travel destination," noted MDOT Director James DeSana. "There is no more deserving roadway in the state for a Michigan Heritage Route designation than Ml, Woodward Avenue," said L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Executive. "Symbolically, Woodward Avenue represents a bridge which unites city and suburbs, east and west, north and south." Calling Woodward Motown's Main Street, Wayne County Executive Edward H. McNamara said, "The Woodward corridor has the region's major cultural, sports and entertainment and educational institutions. t is terrific that communities and organizations from two counties are teaming up to improve an. important regional asset." Detroit Mayor Dennis W. Archer also cited the avenue's role as a bond for the region. "The designation of Woodward Avenue as a Michigan Heritage Schoolcraft's child cox center accredited The Schoolcraft College Children's Center program has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, joining only 7 percent of early childhood programs nationwide. Dorothy Witten, professor of child care and development, said the NAEYC accreditation signifies that every part of the program is excellent. "We have a top-quality child development curriculum, and wanted accreditation for our laboratory center," Witten said. The center's goals are to offer a quality practician for students while providing the best care possible for the young children. "Thi.s is a prestigious' accreditation.".-dm said. "There are very few accredited centers in this area. Not many centers seek it because it is *o hard to get. t Dorothy Witten has a lot do with the facility, the caregivers and the training they get and the documentation they keep." Witten said NAEYC officials examine the facility for safety, the ratio of staff to children and staff training in assessing the center for accreditation. "They look at all of the things that might impact a child's experience at the center," Witten said. They even look at how toys are stored, whether those are kept at the child's eye level so that they can learn responsibility in taking toys out and putting them away, Witten said. The accreditation was voluntary, and included a self-study and on-site evaluation. The selfstudy.and site report were sent tn Washington, DC., where NAEYC representatives from all over the country decide on accreditation. The process takes about a year and the facility is accredited for three years. "This is the first time we have sought this," said Witten. "We waited until we moved into our ne-w facility and got everything in place before we applied. "t-involved a lot of hard work, and we are pleased to have earned it." The Children's Center serves about 100 children from age 6 weeks through kindergarten. Students from the child care and development certificate and associate degree programs work with the children under the. supervision of teachers who have been through the program and faculty who teach the courses. Schoolcraft College is at Haggerty Road, between Six and Seven Mile roads, just west of Route further enhances the route's rich history and culture, allowing Oakland and Wayne Counties the opportunity to build upon our ongoing regional cooperation," Archer said.. "t also serves as a great tool in uniting all communities along the route as we move into the new millennium." "This honor for Woodward Avenue is a tribute to the efforts of a regional nominating committee that included Oakland and Wayne Counties, the Woodward Avenue Action Association, Zago Architecture and SEM COG," said SEMCOG Executive Director Paul Tait. ncluded among the corridor communities that officially endorsed the Heritage Route are Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Township, Detroit, Ferndale, Highland Park, Huntington Woods, Pleasant Ridge, Pontiac and Royal Oak. More than 100 businesses, institutions and neighborhood associations, have endorsed this effort. Kick the habit without weight gain, llut anxiety or withdra,vaf after just one relaxing session!

Police were called to Garden City Hospital Monday after security reported that a patient had tried to punch a doctor. The doctor wasn't seeking to press charges but hospital security, wanted to make sure the man left the property. The Westlaiid man told officers he was waiting for a ride and then walked along Maplewood. Officers said he began walking in the street trying to get a vehicle to stop and was causing drivers to swerve to avoid him. The man refused to get out of the street and began trying to hit the officers as they attempted to arrest him. One officer reported being kicked in the knee and shin before a chemical spray was used. COP CALLS Try americast Once at the police station, the officer said the man began having, a conversation with a wall and a bench. The Psychiatric ntervention Center in Westland was contacted and it was learned that a mental commitment petition had been received regarding the man. He was cited for assaulting an officer, interfering and impeding traffic. - risk-free for 30 days! CTY OF WESTLAND ORDNANCE NO. 248-A-12 AN OHDNANCK TO KKOULATE AND RESTRCT THE USE OF LAN!)

Now it's time for this school board - and people who really want to serve on it - to get to work. Board members chose Eisiminger over board hopefuls Diane Abbott and Marshall Wright. Some board watchers will be pleased, others disappointed. To be sure, all three candidates had plenty to offer when interviewed Monday evening. All too often, our local school board seems like a springboard for people who have aspirations for other offices. There's nothing inherently wrong with political ambition, but right now WayneAVestland needs some selfless board members who will put this district first. David Cox recently left the school board for a Westland City Council appointment after serving three years of a four-year school board term. He returned to the place where his heart was, anyway; he had served a two-year council term until voters ousted him in n all, four council members are former school board members. See a pattern? All too often, our local school board seems like a springboard for people who have aspirations for other offices. There's nothing inherently wrong with political ambition, but right now Wayne- Westland needs some selfless board members who will put this district first. The Wayne-Westland school board has some pressing problems. To name two, it. has a budget surplus that's expected to drop from $14 million to $5.6 million in the next year, and student test scores aren't improving nearly enough. Building renovations are moving along, but the focus must be on quality programs in those schools. New school board President Robin Moore and her six colleagues need to show some real leadership as they face these challenges. Otherwise the school board could begin to gain a reputation as an elected body where political careers got started - and education of children took a back seat.

So it only makes sense that those of us driving puny, two-axle vehicles ought to take notice and listen when ''the Michigan Truck _..Safety Commission, which represents the people who drive huge, multi-axle trucks, puts out some suggestions. to help us share the road better. There's a convergence of issues that make things more difficult for all drivers these days. First, there are more cars and more trucks on the road today than ever before due to a number of reasons, including the predominance of on-time delivery of goods. And, there's been a record -amount of road construction in Michigan this; summer that makes drivers more frustrated with the slow-' downs.

Apparently, it's not the place to be. Apparently Canton or nkster or Garden City or Detroit are the places to be. All of a sudden Westland must be transformed to other places, a "world class" city, maybe?. Except for a few major destructive incidents and poor planning, the masses of the people have been satisfied for years. When did the idea change? What and who changed it? Further, who didn't maintain the buildings for which the taxpayers footed the bills and continue to operate? What people at city hall have ignored their civic duties and responsibilities as overseers of the taxpayers' proper-. ties and assets? The city hall compound is filled with employees and elected representatives. Which of them are not doing their jobs to protect the interests of the citizens? t's time for major changes all right. But not into new city buildings, but rather changes of those whose were entrusted by the voters to complete civic duties, but instead promoted their own selfish desires and pals. Elections are term limits in action! September can't come soon enough. ' Beatrice Scalise....' ' - ' "' : '-,-.." ' '.' : ' Westland Clear millennium mud just saw the ad in the Livonia Observer "Give him your opinion four ways for Sunday." Here it is. t occurs to me that there is a great misconception out in the public domain,.lhatis.forever compoundod-by the^media andthe press. Nothing earthshaking, mind you, but to me somewhat amusing, because it seems to be a typical case of someone saying "something obviously wrong on the face of it, and then it is repeated until pure inertia (or critical mass) take over and give it a life of its own. What am talking about? Well, nothing other than the change of this old millennium to the new one, the hew century, the new decade, think it started with the Y2K computer problem, or Y2K bug. Then it was called the rnillennium bug, which, of course it was NOT. Then couples found it wonderful to have a baby on the fust day of the new millennium, and they tried to figure out when to conceive their Millennium Offspring. Andeverywhere can you hear on TV and radio advertising about"... as we approach the new millennium. blah, blah, blah..." Now we start getting into the money and even the religious aspects of the change to the new millennium (Doomsday at the change to the new millennium). The truth is, our calendar was introduced in 1582 by Pope Gregory X to take care of some of the slippage that took place because of inaccuracies of the previous calendar, because the Julian calendar created three leap years too many in every period of 385 years. So, with the help of astronomer Christopher Clavius this was corrected, and the new calendar became the Gregorian. On Oct. 4, 1582 (Julian) a switch was made bv cutting out the davs until October 15, thus October 4th was followed by October 15 in that year. From now on leap years occur in years exactly divisible by 4, except that years ending with "00" must be divisible by 400 to be leap years. Thus 1900 was no leap year, but 2000 will be. There is one more important detail you and your readers should be aware of: The calendar starts with year 1 AD, preceded by year 1 B.C. THERE NEVER'WAS A YEAR "0". That means, if you can count, that a decade, century and millenniu-m having 10, 100 and 1,000 years respectively, each begins with a "1" at the end, and the last number at the end of each must be a "0". SO, THE PRE SENT (second) MLLENNUM WLL END ON DEC. 31, 2000 AND THE NEW ONE (third) WLL START ON January 1, Even the famous Peter Jennings wrote in Tfie^ntrocfucTioTTio his book : :The Century": "..This.centuryEegan on JanuaryTTTSUTand will end on December 31, " Well he had beginning right, but he ran out of number?/ hnfoit llf n»m»-*o-infi fnnrn hn nn mil rtf'fin. gers and toes?). Those who are confused are obviously in good and prestigious company. s it a big deal? No, probably not.

16 mm wm^t The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1999 (W)A15 car is on? >! Acar is burning, You see it up ahead, traffic slowing as drivers approach the flaming vehicle, spewing a thick black column of smoke toward the sky. You drive by it, fascinated by the flames dancing out from around the windows and hood. The amount of smoke being produced and sent upward is astounding. t doesn't appear that anyone is inside the car. You feel a slight relief, although you aren't sure What you would have done if someone were in the car. You ask yourself, "What if the car burning was yours?" You look at the road in front of you and continue on, not giving it another thought as you turn up your car radio. Vehicle fires are common in the United States. They happen so frequently that they are barely noticed by passers-by. However, vehicle fires are a significant element of the U.S. fire problem- Considering that one out of every five reported fires involve motor vehicles, and that nearly 700 people die and more than 3,000 people are injured each year from vehicle fires, we must plan our actions accordingly. By analyzing the data we have on vehicle fires, we can gain knowledge that may keep you safer if the next burning vehicle you come in contact with is yours. Vehicle fires produce high heat levels and toxic gases. The heat can be in excess of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, with flames shooting as high as 10 feet. 'While all fires give off deadly gases that can impair judgment before they kill you, planning your actions in advance can help you perform better when the emergency arises. f you are driving and notice the GUEST COLUMNST TOMKURSKi visible smoke and accompanying smell, stop on the side of the road as soon as safely possible. Park the car, set the parking brake, and turn off the ignition. f the ignition is left on, the fuel pump may continue to pump fuel to the fire. GET OUT OF THE CAR! Don't waste time investigating light amounts of smoke yourself. Smoke contains carbon monoxide, a potentially deadly gas that confuses its victims before making them sleepy prior to unconsciousness and death. Although car explosions are very rare, fire can spread rapidly. t is safest to get yourself and all others out of and away from the vehicle. Parts of the vehicle can burst because of heat, shooting debris great distances, Bumper and hatchback door struts, two-piece tire rims, magnesium wheels, drive shafts, grease seals, axle and engine parts all can become lethal shrapnel. Once you are a safe distance away from the vehicle, call the local fire department and tell them the location of the vehicle that is on fire. Remain away from the vehicle, and do not attempt to re-enter the vehicle to retrieve property. f the fire is under Congress drops the ball on health care... again the hood or trunk, do not attempt to open them, The increased air available to the fire could cause it to gro%, and you may burn your hands while attempting to open these areas by; contacting hot objects. f a portable fire extinguisher is available that is rated for use on Class U B" and Class "C fires, it can be used to attempt to extinguish the fire. f a fire extinguisher is not available, do not attempt to fight the fire. As long as the fire department has been notified, they will be at the. scene shortly to extinguish the fire. You don't have the equipment and training that firefighters have to fight the fire. Be careful, motor vehicle fires can be dangerous! Tom Kiurski is a public education officer and firefighter with the Livonia Fire Department. n the last few years served as editor of The Novi News, began to notice a disturbing trend - we were writing stories with increasing frequency about fund-raising events for people with terminal illnesses. How sad, thought. n this day and age when health insurance is so common, some folks still have to go out on the stump to get the cash they need to keep from dying. was even more disturbed when began to realize that in most of these cases, the patients actually had health insurance. As continued to observe, it became clear there were two typical causes for this need to raise money. One was to cover costs incidental to the treatment expenses. For example, a patient might be flying to a clinic out of state and air fare and hotel rooms for relatives caused the additional cost burden. ^ Fair enough, concluded. nsurance can't be expected to cover such costs. The second common cause really bothered me, however. The doctor determined the patient needed a drug not yet fully approved by the Federal Drug Administration and therefore still considered MKE MALOTT experimental. nsurance companies most often won't pay for experimental drugs. While modern science is spinning out new treatments for all manner of ailments at a truly dazzling rate, the FDA still requires the most arduous testing of new drugs to be found anywhere in the world. And it should. But typically, by the time pharmaceutical companies reach the point of submitting a "protocol," the outline of the final study, to the FDA, drug manufacturers have done quite a bit of preliminary testing. The last bit of research is done on humans to track the drug's effectiveness and discover all the potential side effects. Doctors keep an eye on such research and it is not unusual for them to conclude that some new wonder drug is the last best hope for their patient. The patient can get the drug, by participating in the study, but insurance companies usually won't pick up the tab. Somehow, that seems almost criminal to me _ that a patient for whom insurance premiums have been paid, who needs a drug that has been developed to the point its is being given to humans should have to face bankruptcy - or resort to fund-raisers - to pay for it. So was extremely disappointed when Congress recently turned down a proposal to require health mainte^ nance organizations to pay for experimental drugs. t was one of a number of HMO reforms rejected by federal lawmakers. Also on the list were proposals to allow doctors to make the final call on what treatments a patient needs, rather than the HMO, and eliminating HMOs' immunity from lawsuits. Frankly, 've never understood why HMOs should not have legal liability for their actions. We all understand that things can go wrong on the operating table when we consent to surgery, but that has not led to any immunity for doctors from malpractice suits. Now that Congress has dropped the ball, it's time for the second string to take the field. f any HMO reforms are likely to be enacted, it will be the state Legislature that does the job. t has had to do it before. When Congress rejected President Clinton's national health care plan several years back, it was the state legislatures that had to take over. n one year alone, according to the National Conference of State Legisla-. tiires, state lawmakers across the country proposed some 26,000 health care reform bills and turned 3,400 of them into law. Much of the national plan was adopted in many states. Dennis Denno, spokesman for the Michigan Democrats, is mad about Congress' most recent failure to act and pointed the finger directly at Republican Sen. Spencer Abraham for his no vote on the bills. Congress could have taken care of the issue for the entire country. But he agrees now it's up state lawmakers. State Sen. Shirley Johnson, R- Royal Oak, said she believes the final call on a patient's treatment should be the doctor's, not the HMO's. And she agrees it is up to the state to do the job. t's just one more instance in which the state is left to do a job the feds should have taken care of.

No, it wasn't the Republicans crowning George W. Bush as their presidential nominee. Nor was it the Democrats, vibrating (slowly) to the electric personalities of Al Gore and Bill Bradley. t was the Reform Party, in convention duly assembled at the Hyatt Regency in Dearborn. Now before you either snigger or condemn the Reform Party to the overcrowded graveyard of -American third parties, consider this, -. What political party's platform called for. and achieved the most substantive political reform in the last 10 years? The Reform Party's plank on term limits. What third party rose virtually overnight to full-blown national exposure over just two. presidential elections? The Reform Party, led by billiohaifehogs Perot, What political party attractetl' : Michigan votes for its presidential candidate in : the lt>y6i.election? The Kefonn raviy,-w-tii i-.o?" Pmut its ' Candidate for president.. For folks in Michigan, th6 Reform Party ought to have a lot of appeal as an alternative to either of the mainstream parties. To the left are thedemocrats, dominated in general by organized labor, and in particular by the United Auto Workers and its president, Steve Yokich, and his chief of staff, Paul Massaron. The scope of domination was laid out lor all to sec last week when Frank Garrison, the longtime head of the Michigan State AFL-CO and one of the few independent thinkers in the party hierarchy, announced his'"retirement." The feud between Garrison and Yokich-Massaron has been.an ill kept secret for years. We now know who has tho yotes. Also powerful in the Michigan Democratic Party are Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and the various political factions in Detroit, as well ae, Wayne County Executive Ed McNamarn. Excepting followers of MeNamara, a practical politician of the old school and a centrist, there's not much room at tho Democratic inn for moderate;;, "MiilikcM Democrat" suburbanite?, m- business and professional people. On the right are the Republicans, now dominated by <'<ov. John Kngler, a colossus whose reign has obscured the vicious split between relatively practical "Main Street". Republicans and the rabidly rigid social conservatives. : Don't kid yourselves. All may be sweetness and light on the surface; Republicans regardless of ilk ate panting to recapture the White House and George W. seems the most likely guy to do it. But underneath the politics of companionate expediency lurk a bunch of savage ideologues whose past track record demonstrates spectacu- PHLP POWER lar efficiency in driving away most moderate folks. So a party that includes«this on its platform.-- "We shall seek to reform our electoral, lobbying nnd campaign practices to ensure that our elected government officials and our-carididaies owe 1- their allegiance and remain accountable to the rsrorsle whom ''h^v RTC nlpcfed to serve rather than other influencfe-seeking agencies" -should be very attractive to a lot of middle-of-the-road- Michigan voters. Of course, the Reform Party arose as the compound of widespread voter frustration with both major parties, generously greased with Mr. Perot's money and ego. doubt any other person in America could have created a party that got itself on the ballot in most states literally from scratch. Over the weekend, the Reform Party had to address in convention its own personality struggle for leadership between Perot and Minnesota governor and former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura. Now that the issue has been, ahem, v pinned down, the reformers will have to go forward under the cloud that, "a vote for the Reform Party is like a vote for none of the above," in the words of Bill Ballenger, editor of.nside Michigan Politics. t's all very sad. Since tho election last year, many, many people have told me they feel they have no home in either major political party. The prospects for either Democrats or Republicans reaching out to ordinary, middle : of-the : road people seem slim. And the Kct'onn Parly has limited itself to offering us a billionaire with short man's disease and a TV entertainer.' Winston Churchill was right.

Before beginning repairs, Hartner removed a yellow "hot stick" from his vehicle and laid it on the ground near the work area. (A "hot stick" is an insulated pole used to move live power lines.) After believing he had isolated the burned-out circuit, Hartner told Wing the transformer was grounded so repairs could begin. Unaware of an alternate feed to the transformer, Hartner began to work. But when he made contact with the conductor, he was severely shocked,.and fell to the ground with the live 7,000-volt cable resting on his body. " said, "God, forgive me for all 've done,' and reached for the wire," said Wing. The eight-year Metro Airport employee quickly grabbed the "hot stick" from the ground arid pushed the live cable from Hartner's body. Wing then checked Hartner, who was slipping in and out of consciousness and used his radio to call for emergency assistance. Hartner suffered two contact burns where the wire brushed rescue Life saver: Greg Wing, left, shows histriedal and citatiori received for his rescue of Peter Hartner,.right, from an electric cable. against his body, "Greg Wing's heroic deed saved Peter Hartner's life," said Charlie Sherrill, director of airport operations..

Make no mistake about it. This columnist has highlighted several of them, including drugs/alcohol,, sex, violence and a need to fit in. But as we wring our hands with worry about the'next generation, am relieved to see. that not all the children share our concerns. n a new poll by Nickelodeon and Time magazine, more than 1,100 kids age 6-14 expressed some thoughts that, frankly, surprised me. As Claudia Wallis sums up in her July 5 Time story, "What emerges loud and clear from the study is that kids are very happy to be kids and they don't view the world as the nasty place their parents perceive it to be." These kids, instead of worrying about guns, crime and violence, are more concerned with the simpler aspects of childhood: being bossed around, homework, being grounded and chores. The scariest proposition they could conjure up about their future was to envision themselves as president of the United States. When asked if they would rather be Microsoft founder Bill Gates or President Bill When A«t rtfkril if that/ would rather be Microsoft founder Bill Gates or President Bill Clinton, 67 percent responded positively for Gates. When asked if they ^4^ldb#y«ifer-- consider being president at all, -62 percent said no. Clinton, 67 percent responded positively for Gates. When asked if they would even consider being president at all, 62 percent said no.

When parents were, asked the same question, the answer was 18 years old. Another question asked kids and adults was how much respect they thought adults have for kids. Some 79 percent of the kids thought adults have "some" or "a lot" of respect for children.,. n contrast, 94 percentof adults "'" ' answered the same way. When the kids were asked if they felt that adults had no respect for children, a solid 5 percent agreed, Could it be that adults send a mixed message by asauring children they have respect for them, hut don't act like it? Onelast surprising response that - should tell us something about what. every child needs came when they were asked if they Would like io spend more time with their parents,,. As expected, the/m/e kids agreed they would like to spend more time with their parents, but evoh'go percentof the kids ages 12*14 agreed.

But now, she believes, the "number is certainly over 10 percent." ' : And there's a large group of them in the western Wayne County area. Janot pastors at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Redford; Diana Goudie and her husband, Bob, share duties at Aldersgate United Methodist Church; the Rev. Carla Thompson Powell has pastoral duties at Timothy Lutheran Church in. Livonia; and the Rev. Janet Noble- Rjehardson has been at St. Timothy Presbyterian Church in LivdnLa.since ' But, Lewis points out, most female ministers tend to be "assistants." "Most of the women clergy in this, area are assistants, Very few are rectors or pastors of large churches," she said. "They're usually assistants or associates. They're not the lead pastor. That's discrimination." Unfortunately, her bumpy road is one that is well traveled. Goudie has had a few rough moments in her career. While she was pastoring at a church near Milan, an older man in her church insisted that women should not preach. " just continued to love him, surround him, be nice to him and so forth," she said. "When he went to the hospital, was there for his surgery. By the end, he got so he thought my. prayers were OK. just continued to be who was. continued to work hard at niy sermons to preach good sermons and people heard that." Now with her husband at her side, things are a bit easier for Goudie. "We have a~male and a female as equals; it's a wonderful model for people," she said.

She admitted that she just humored the woman arid laughed. Powell wanted to study psychology* She didn't think she was the right one for the pastoral job. That spori changed.

"Eventually, went to seminary. thought T would only be able tg be an associate pastor working with a senior pastor in such and such setting. didn't think 'd ever be on my own as a solo pastor." As the second female pastor at Timothy, she hasn't encountered the same type of discrimination as her peers. ' "One thing they did need to remember that think is important for many congregations is that not all women pastors are alike,'' said Powell, whose husband is a pastor and between calls. "They had one and assumed that would be very similar to her and 'm not. She and have very different personalities, different styles, very different priorities. "t's important for people to remember just because we're women, it doesn't mean we all think and act the same." But, she does point out that women bring a unique perspective to the church. "We've been able to think about incorporating the whole family, to think about welcoming children in worship," she said. " think it's a great gift just to have different types of people serving as pastors. t reminds us that God is not a white male, 55 years old. That even when people draw pictures of God, they draw a white guy. "God is so much broader than that. Having women pastors, pastors of color, reminds us that there's something broader about God, something wider about God's love than just one gender, one ethnicity, and one age." he remembers that. Every time he sees her, he says, "Come here, know what you want.' "She writes to him; he doesn't write back, but he lets her know he's gotten all of her cards and letters."

Zonta gives roses to community Three special rose bushes are blooming at Greerimead Historical Village, Schoolcraft College and Livonia City Hall, thanks to the Zonta Club of Northwest Wayne County. Planting the bushes was the club's first activity of the club 'year. The Zonta international rose (Harflow) is among the earliest to flower, creating a flamboyant display of glowing amber blooms until summer's end. For decades a yellow rose has been a symbol of Zonta nternational, a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women locally and globally. Schoolcraft College's Women's Resource Center is one of the recipients of money the club gives each year to improve the status of women locally. Zonta of Northwest Wayne County has donated more than $25,000 to the center since the club's inception. The club's two main fund-raisers are its fashion show and preholidays-koeze Nuts sale. Officers for the club year are Sally Randall of Botsford Hospital as president, Dorothy Murphy of Henry Ford Community College as vice-president, Evelyn Shuput, a Livonia Public Schools retiree, as secretary, and Kay Diggs, a Henry Ford Community College retiree, as treasurer.

The East leads the series, 10-8: Madonna recruiting class stellar Haeger adds top talent BY BRAD E.MONS SPORTS WRTER Greg Haeger doesn't act like he hit the lottery, but the fourth-year Madonna L T niversity baseball coach likes his odds for the future. With six regulars to replace from a team, Haeger went out and tapped into abundant pool of talent right in his own backyard Observerland. He has signed five first-team All-Observer players, along with a pair of second-teamers and. another off Redford Catholic Central's Division state championship squad. Chris Woodruff "We'll have, a new Redford CC team next year," Haeger said. "We lost some pretty good starters who have been here the last three or four years. "But we were able to bring in some good local kids who will compete for starting jobs right away. "'ve got some competitors and that's what wanted." First-team All-Area players who will don the Madonna uniform next season include Redford Union pitcher-outfielder Joel Halliday, Redford Gatholic.Central catcher Chris Woodruff, Livonia Churchill first baseman Erie Lightle, Westland John Glenn pitcher-fiist baseman Dale Hayes and Livonia Stevenson third baseman-pitcher Roy BASEBALL Rabe. Second-team All-Area picks soon-tobe Crusaders include pitcher-outfielder Mark Cole of Redford CC and catcherfirst baseman Joe Rizzi of Plymouth Salem. Second baseman Mario D'Herin of ' CC is also in the fold along with outfielders Chris Radu ('Riverviewl and Gary Linzell (Belleville;, Madonna has also picked up University of Detroit Mercy left-handed hurler Randy Palmer (Madison UoJrrKfc- P;-U^n Pnln.-l.,-Wr,..., - ll V- - - X A 1^ * j * t V w> A-* A %S A» \S ^ 4.

Halliday, who helped RU to a 24-5 overall record, and Hayes, who clouted an upper deck shot to right field at Tiger Stadium in the East-West All- Star game, both hit left-handed, but are right-handed throwers. As a pitcher, Halliday was 9-2 ami. hit.348. Hayes batted.442 with 33 RB and was 7-4 on the mound. "Joel is a good athlete who played.second, the outfield and pitched for RU," Haeger said.. "He's a good hitter and has hit well in thp Collegiate (summer) league. He has good potential as a pitcher.. He throws in the mid-80s (MPH).. "Dale is a good left-handed hitter ' with power.

Right now he's 6-feet-3 and weighs only 170, but once he gets stronger he'll increase his velocity. " Lightle led Churchill, which captured its tirst district title tn over 20 years, with a.490 average. He had six homers and 37 RB. "Like Hayes, Lightle is a big kid, 6-3, 6-4, who is.a worker and has power," Haeger said. '"He has good power potential." Haeger, who led CC to the 1987 state Class A title before going on to Michigan and the Detroit Tigers' minor league system, also, grabbed three players off Shamrocks' roster. Woodruff, a 225-pound catcher, could be the steal of the class. He batted..440 with 40 RB.. "He has a chance to start right away," the Madonna eoach said.. "He. has a lot of power in a home run friendly park. He could be an impact player right away.". Cole, meanwhile, is a lefthanded thrower who plays the outfield. -^-He^idnH-pfteh a lot 'f6^-go,-;bt>t-hfr~has a good breaking ball," Haeger said. "He also has a good heart and is a good competitor. He also gets his hacks up there at the plate." D'Herin, a right-handed hitter, was an unsung player on CC's state championship team. He provides leadership qualities. "Mario has great hands and good foot quickness," Haeger said. "He's a good control hitter. He's very vocal and shows a lot of energy on the field." Rabe, who helped Stevenson win division and district crowns, is a late addition to the Madonna recruiting class. He originally committed to. Oakland University, but got caught in a coaching change before making a decision to play at. Saginaw Valley State. But early in tfye summer, Rabe had another change of heart." re holds several Stevenson career offensive marks. This season he batted.523 with four homers and 35 RB.

31 V«WMV*P1«V*PP*M«mm Cfi(LCPW) The Observer & Eccentric/ THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1999 anglers rule Lake St.. Clair bass A couple area bass fishing teams have been experiencing tremendous success lately on local waters here in southeastern Michigan. Darren Lear and Ken Rosbury, both of Canton, opened, the bass season last month on Lake St. Clair with a victory in the Motor City Charity Bass Classic. Fishing Yamamoto grubs and tubes in 12 feet of water, the duo combined to catch an eight-fish-limit that weighed 34.8 pounds. "That was an unofficial Lake St. Clair record," Rosbury said. *We caught, two big ones that weighed 5.2 pounds and 5.4 pounds and we also won big fish honors for the tournament." Rosbury said the fish were in a transition period and were found in a post-spawn staging area The following day, the dynamic duo teamed up once again and placed second in the Tri-State Bass Super Team Tournament, also held on Lake St. Clair. They caught another limit that weighed 26.5 pounds and pocket- ed $4,500 for their efforts'. Two weeks later, Lear competed in the Forrest Wood Open, the sixth stop of the 1999 Wal-Mart FLW Tour. Of 166 professional anglers Lear managed a 21stplace finish with a two-day total of 29.8 pounds. Two weeks ago the Lear/Rosbury team was at it again and had two more victories over the weekend. On Saturday, they won the Angler's Choice Tournament on Lake Erie with a five-fish limit that tipped the scale at 21.7 pounds. The following day they topped the chart in an Oakland Bass Masters Tournament on Lake St. Clair with an eightfish limit that weighed 27.7 pounds. "We're fishing some areas that a lot of other people aren't," said Rosbury. "We've been fishing uul there for a long, long time and all the hard work is finally starting to pay of." Ladies find a little luck Another local tandem having a great summer of fishing fun is Canton's Mary Ashteneau and Troy's Jeni Harless. Two weeks ago they teamed up to win the Bustin* Lip Tournament on Lobdell Lake with a five-fish limit that weighed 22.2 pounds. "That's a tremendous weight for that lake," said Ashteneau, a former qualifier for the National Bass'n Gals Classic Star. "We went out at 5 - a.im and hadn't fished for five minutes and caught one close to five pounds. We had all our fish by 7 a.m. and only culled OUTDOOR NSGHTS one fish after that." The first fish they caught BLL turned out to PARKER weigh 4.5 ~~"~ pounds and earned Ashteneau and harless big fish honors for the tournament. Ashteneau said they were fishing in eight feet of water with Berkley spider grubs. The same pattern paid off last weekend as Ashteneau and Harless joined forces to win the Hooksetters Bass Association tournament on Lobdell Lake. This time they landed a sevenfish limit that weighed pounds. They pocketed $245 for winning the first tournament and $1,000 for winning the sec- ond. "We found one deep hole along a little weed bed and they were coming up there to feed," Ashteneau said. " can't wait until August 29 because Oakland Bass Masters has another tournament out there and we plan to fish that one, too." BASSMASTER on tap Rochester's Art Ferguson is currently in New Orleans competing in the prestigious BASS- MASTER Classic, which runs Thursday through Sunday. July 29-31, on the Mississippi ^River delta. Ferguson fished in the Classic one other time, in He earned a berth in this year's tournament by winning the Northern Division championship in the WrangienB.AS.S. Federation National Championships' earlier this year. (Anglers and hunters ore urged to report your success. Questions and comments are also encouraged. Send information to: Outdoors, 805 E.

35 l 5 * t? ** The Observer & jeccenfric/thuksday, JULY 29, 1999 Bears from page El replace the pound blocks, that are now given to the polar bears. The blocks, some with fished packed in them, allow them to have fun while they're getting their food, t<et bears be bears polar bear to act like a bear, so :' < Scott Carter believes one of people will know what a polar the most important aspects of bear is. The. new habitat will the exhibit is that the Arctic have a summer tundra with Ring of Life mimics a bear's natural habitat. As curator of mam pool as well as an open sea area flowers and grasses and an open mals, Carter is lending his with snow and ice. Most people Knowledge of bears to accomplish just that because "most don't think of bears in summer polar bear exhibits are too small." The old habitat, which consists, mainly of rocks and a ijool. will soon be a larger space filled with plants similar to tkose found in their natural environment. 5 "We want to build a visitor experience so people could see the polar bears in a more realistic environment, to give them a more realistic idea ofwhere the bears come from," said Carter. "We want to provide the opportunity for polar bears to act the way they would in the wild, for a walking around flowers." The new environment will also have a lot of built-in cubby holes to hide foods. "They'll find smells which are Very interesting to a bear. Bears spend plenty of time just smelling," said Carter. "Like most bear's, they need to be kept stimulated. Lots of times they sleep, like all bears. They're very intelligent. They like things that are a challenge, things that they have to figure out." Kagari is working with the architecture firm clones & Jones of Seattle to make sure the polar bears ate happy in their new home, but it's been a challenge. "t's certainly not easy bringing people and animals together in a way^ that works," said Kagan. "We try to recreate nature and bring people into it in a way that's interesting. As far as the animals, you have to understand animals. Polar bears love to swinu They love sunbathing. They like to roll around in sand and the dirt and they like to walk a.lot;" Kagan is making sure the zoo's five polar bears have space to do all three. Plus, double that for five new bears when the exhibit is complete. "The Sacramento Zoo is sending a bear this fall. They heard we're doing this. They're limited there a*nd felt their polar bear should be in a better place. We also alerted Canadian author^ ties that if there are some. orphan bears they need to place, we have room." For kids only Along with the sleeping lions and 47-year-old Rudy, the oldest rhinoceros in captivity, Kagan thinks the polar bear habitat and the $6 million National Amphibian Conservation Center scheduled to open in Deceniber will intrigue children. He's proud of the fact the Detroit Zoo is tailoring their plans to children as well as the animals and adults. The prairie dog exhibit, opened May 19, incorporates three acrylic bubbles so children can view colony members close up. A sign leading to the bubbles warns 'No adults allowed.' Brendan Muster, who was visiting the prairie dogs with his mother Debra, thought "they were cute." "We have a pass so we come all the time," added Debra Muster who grew up in Troy and now lives in Sterling Heights. "They love the train and visiting all the animals." Kagan couldn't be happier when he hears the complimentary comments of families like the Musters. He's hoping the grizzly bears will be just as content when they move into the existing polar bear quarters. The grizzlies will fish from a running stream stocked with trout. "We're beginning to do more and more elements that are just for kids," said Kagan. "We're affecting people's attitudes about nature. One of the ways you can do that is by letting them fall in love. By taking them out into nature, you obviously want them to care for something. This is not about display. t's about how do we save the animals and how do we create a bond between animals and people. To see the river otters swimming under water, how could you not be impressed and care about Michigan wetlands?"

Her sister, Jennifer, 21, is the two-time defending national champion in the premier division and touring with the "Fire and Grace" dance troupe in California, a Scottish version of the popular "Riverdance." She's coming home to compete at this year's games. Highland Games grew out of rustic clan gatherings held in Scotland as early as the 11th century..when Scots immigrated to the U.S. and Canada they brought the tradition Highland Games with them. "Young men would show off, show how far they could throw a hammer, and the youngsters would show off their dancing," said the Rev. Willet J. Herrington of Garden City, chaplain for the St. Andrew's Society. "t's a real nice, fun get-together. 1 see a lot of my friends, those who are Scottish and those who wish they were Scottish. bless the clans in the afternoon at the ceremony, and get to wear mv kilt."

Noggin, described as "the new thinking channel for kids from Nickelodeon and the Children's Television Workshop," began airing July 15 on Comcast Cable's Channel 4.4 in Garden City- Comcast was the first cable company in Michigan to offer the program. beef up our channel line-up." said Fred Eaton, area manager for public affairs for Comcast Cable. "t's family friendly, very high quality programs. They don't duplicate PBS, but the programming is of the same sort. We think that it's important for young people to have a channel they can watch to learn something and be entertained with something besides violence and shoot-'em-up." The commercial-free station airs 24-hours a day and is targeted to children ages Programs for preschoolers air 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. n the afternoon, Noggin offers programming for kids ages Adults can tune in to watch the late night lineup of classic educational programs with nostalgic appeal.

Noggin's mission, explains oonora 1 mooa<for T Pr\t*n Aornoim,,«..... D-- -»_...»-., is to "serve kids' natural urge to learn by offering them a place to learn on television and online where learning is driven by them. Our slogan, 'What Sparks You?' celebrates kids' natural excitement for learning by asking kids themselves to help shape the network's agenda and steer its content." Nicole of Troy was logged in to Noggin on Friday morning. She was playing "Nog t!" a game where children can help create a whole new language called "Nogginese." Words visitors create arc incorporated into a quiz for the future. Kids who visit Noggin on the Web can play games, ask questions, contribute stories, poems, ideas and suggestions. "The nternet is a fast way to reach a lot of people," said Ascheim. "You get ridiculously rapid response. We want kids to feel like they're in charge of their own learning. We are listening to them to work for them." Shortly after its February launch No cror in.com recorded 21,000 visits'to. the site. By the end of June the number had grown to 830,000. Noggin is expanding it's TV viewing audience as well. "We'd like to be a broadly distributed network," said Ascheim. "Comcast is the first analog (basic) cable company to broadcast the channel.

And for all the right reasons. No big-budget special effects covering up a lack of substance, no high school fascination with bodily functions and fluids, no obscenity-filled animation sucking in kids and unwary parents. "Drop Dead Gorgeous" a send-up of small-town beauty contests, is one reason we go to the movies: to laugh our heads off and feel good about it later. You will. The film is a "mockumentary" along the lines of Rob Reiner's breakthrough "This s Spinal Tap." t's not done often because it calls for a writer and a director who understand how a documentary is shot in the first place, how to craft a film-within-a-film and how to let the absolutely serious play out to become the absolutely hilarious. Writer Lona Williams ("The Drew Carey Show"), who was an actual beauty queen, and firsttime director Michael Patrick Jann (creator of MTV's *The State") have put it together brilliantly. They've avoided the trap of making a funny five-minute "Saturday Night Live" sketch into an unfunny feature-length film ("A Night At the Roxbury," 'et, al). "Drop Dead Gorgeous" never drops the crown on the runway. Come with their documentary film crew to Mount Rose, home of Minnesota's oldest living Lutheran (actually deceased, but no one's taken down the billboard). They're there to follow the contestants during the days leading up to the Sarah Rose Miss Teen America Pageant preliminaries a really big deal up there in small-town Minnesota. Let's meet the two leading hopefuls. There's Becky (Denise Richards), whose.mother"(kirstie Alley) was a winner years before and is this year's pageant director. Becky was born and bred to win this contest, but how far will mom go to make it happen? Then there's Amber (Kirsten Dunst), a trailer-park princess \vho practices her tap-dancing while putting makeup on corpses at the local mortuary ("We're real busy this time of year - hunting season"). Amber* so perfectly Midwestern blonde and perky, wants only to make it big like Diane Sawyer. She tells her off-camera interviewer, "Guys get outta Mount Rose all the time for hockey scholarships... and prison. But the pageant's kihda my only chance." Amber's mom (Ellen Barkin, in a remarkable departure from her steamy seductress roles) becomes the victim of Amber's ambitions, but an exploding beer can fused to her hand is apparently a small price to pay.. Sabotage is everywhere. Stage lights fall, costumes disappear, threshers blow up. Someone has turned to the dark side, that's for sure, and the fix seems to be in, Who will succeed the reigning Queen, who's now an in-patient at the local hospital's Anorexia Ward? "Drop Dead Gorgeous" doesn't miss a trick. The awful talent competition (including dog impressions and a reading from "Soylent Green"), the cheesy choreography, the lame smalltown judges are all skewered royally, although the portrayal of one judge as mentally impaired crosses the line. Think nothing like the backstabbing pictured in this picture really happens? Two words: Tonya Harding. National Armiwinentj Showcase Clrvemas Showwt Auburn HHlt N.OpdyfeRd.

40 mmmmmmmm MM The Observer & Eccentric/rtiURSDAY, JULY 29, 1999 **S7 Have some fun before summer slips away BACKSTAGE R erne mber PASS that sinking feeling you got as a kid when the month of August was approaching? The complaint went something like this: "School's about tq start and ANN DEUS haven't had enough fun." t was a comment that parents usually reacted to with a roll of the eyes v a lengthy reminder of your recent summer vacation activities, and a verbal overview of what it was like to work for a living. As a kid, that approach may have provided an important lesson on the value of free time, which there was less of due to the well-mean* irig lecture. As an adult, you realize that no one is immune from the "summer's almost over" blues. So, let's play a little catch-up with some cultural activities you can easily fit into your schedule. First Fridays How about checking out the First Fridays at the Detroit nstitute of Arts event on Friday, Aug. 6? Detroit Public TV's BACKSTAGE PASS program visited a recent First Friday affair at the Detroit nstitute of Arts for a segment that airs 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 1. t will explain why the monthly event has become such a hit with families. The August program at the DA starts at 6 p.m., and features a Workshop on mosaic techniques, an informal drawing session with artist Vito Valdez, a quilting demonstration, and reggae with Universal Xpression. While you're there, don't miss the Knight Gallery exhibition of artist Ben Shahn. Summer music series Another activity that won't burn up precious vacation time is the summer music series at the Detroit Zoo. Beginning each Wednesday at 6 p.m., you can talk with the animals or sing with some outstanding performers, such as blues standouts Alberta Adams and Thorhetta Davis, two BACKSTAGE PASS alums to be featured in August. Bring a picnic basket, Yogi. Time is running out for you to experience Cranbrook Art Museum's excellent exhibit, "Contemporary Art From Cuba: rony and Survival on the Utopian sland.'" Look mto-the summer jazz series concerts on Friday. July 30 and Aug. 13. too.. Century Club "Forbidden Hollywood" continues to generate fun at the Gem Theatre's Century Club during its run that extends through August. Or, consider a trip.<o Jackson for the expanded Michigan Shakespeare Festival. ' Two bands especially worthy of broad exposure are the jafcz group Blackman and Arnold nnfl the wild lock band Cowboy Mouth. Both perform on BACK STAGE PASS on Aug. 1,.an edition which also features me.t.al sculpture artist Chris Turner, who was recently commissioned to build a millennium bell m Detroit'.* Grand Circus Park.

The restaurant is formal with white tablecloths, but quite comfortable. Art Deco inspired, Marco's doesn't look like a traditional talian restaurant. " love color." said Marco explaining why he chose soft purple, mauve and aqua as accents. Nothing has changed over the past 10 years except some of the art work, and fresh flowers, which are replaced every week. Marco's is quiet, intimate, and softly lit with candles. t's a good place to unwind after a busy day or week, close a business deal, or pop the big question to someone special.

Marco now 38; was only 28 when the restaurant opened. Tina was 18 and had just graduated from Harrison High School in Farmington Hills. Both of them grew up in the business. their parents owned a restaurant, and were enthusiastic and confident. n the beginning, Marco's menu was casual, and contained many traditional talian dishes such as ravioli, lasagna and gnocchi. They worked to polish the service so that it would be "fine, but not stuffy," said Tina. "t's like visiting with people every night, like a big party.". Marco enjoys^cooking and creating new dishes. " was always in the kitchen watching my grandma cook," he said. At the restaurant, he began introducing new dishes such as the popular chicken breast sauteed with Michigan cherries and Frangelico liqueur, but kept the lasagna, gnocchi, and ravioli. Looking at the menu with Tina and Marco is kind of like looking at a family scrapbeok. Many dishes have a. story behind them. The chicken dish was created after Marco received some samples of Michigan dried cherries and started experimenting with different flavor combinations. Calamari Fritti, a popular appetizer, is an "old standby," and often requested. Linguine Alia Gaeta linguini with olive oil. garlic, baby clams and shrimp was created 10 years ago in honor of their father, Enzo, and his talian hometown, Gaeta. Filetto Alia Gorgonzola medallions of beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola cheese and mushroom cabernet sauce is 10 years old, and still very popular.

Filetto Alia Gorgonzola medallions of beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola cheese and mushroom cabernet sauce, and nsalata Caprese fresh tomato basil salad served with fresh Mozzarella cheese, are among the restaurant's most popular dishes. wegian salmon with mushroom caper dill sauce has been on the menu only three years, but is an example of why Marco's isn't your typical talian restaurant. Lambata di Vitello Alia Griglia char-grilled veal rib chop with grilled portobello mushrooms and seasoned roasted peppers is one of Marco's favorite entrees. Tina likes the Rolatini di Melanzane pan-sauteed eggplant rolled with Mozzarella cheese and baked with fresh tomato sauce. Pasta dishes and entrees are served 'with freshly baked bread and a fresh green salad. The luncheon menu offers main dish salads, sandwiches, and variety of entrees including pasta, chicken, seafood and steaks.
