Becky Moore of Canton

graduated last week, gathered
377 votes.
Mardigian and Simescu

Canton is going to need more sewer
capacity as development continues.
That, in a nutshell, was the preliminary finding of a "community flow
metering project" that township trustees
and planning commissioners got a look
at Tuesday night.
"This is our first stab at showing you
the results of the community metering
project," Tim Faas, municipal services
director, told the group.
"Over the past week or two we've spent
a lot of time internally grappling with the
ever-popular issue of population projections. If there's any component of this
entire study that we've put together so
far that has a degree of subjectivity to it,
it's that."
The impetus for conducting the study
was two-fold, Faas said.
In the spring of2003, the Michigan
Department of Environmental Quality'
instituted a ban on any further sewer
system extension permits for developments flowing into the Cherry Hill trunk
line.
For that ban to be lifted, Faas said, the
township had to demonstrate that it had
sufficient sewage capacity in its local collection system to receive additional
flows.
Meanwhile, several developers were
expressing interest in having the undeveloped areas along the western end of
the community rezoned to accommodate
greater densities than those listed in the
township's Comprehensive Plan.
In order to address the concerns,
Canton Township and the Western
Townships Utilities Authority engaged
the services of engineering consultants
and a metering contractor to analyze the
sewer systems, looking at collection,
storage, transport and treatment.
"Engineers developed a flow projection
for the local system, the regional system
owned by WTUA and the wastewater
treatment plant,"Faas said.
The results were not unexpected.
"We're going to have to make improvements to our wastewater collection system," he said. "And that's not just on
lands we're considering rezoning, but all

Voters pick Schofield, Becher, McClain City
on
BY SUE MASON
STAFF WRT
I ER
There will be another new
face on the Wayne-Westland
Board of Education in July
with the election of retired
school teacher Stephen Becher
to a one-year term.
The Wayne resident upset
incumbent appointee Teresa
Robbins, garnering 818 votes
to her 494 votes in the official
results. He will serve the
remaining year of the late
Mathew McCusker's term.
Voters also favored incumbent Cindy Schofield and
incumbent appointee Terrance
McClain for the two four-year
terms.
"I was really stunned," said
Becher of his victory. "I
thought I had a chance, but I
thought it would be close."
Robbins, too, was surprised
by the outcome. A former
school board member who

election.
"I was shocked not only by
the loss, but the size of the
loss," said Robbins of the election results. "I was blind-sided
by it all. I thought I'd done
everything right."
Becher won 16 of the district's 17 precincts as well as
the absentee voting in the election. He credited the district's
teachers, support personnel,
custodians and bus drivers, as
well as four members of the
Wayne City Council in helping
him win the election so handily.
"It's incredible and it's all do
to the hard work of the people
who supported me," he said.
For Robbins, 'life goes on."
"I've enjoyed
it and I want to
share with
what a privilege and an
honor it has
been to serve in
this capacity,"
Robbins said
McClain
during her
final school board meeting
Tuesday evening. "I've enjoyed
being up here."
Schofield, who was seeking
her second term, received 795
votes. McClain placed second
with 652 votes, just 21 votes
more than third-place finisher
Chad Campbell who had 631.
Finishing last in the voting for
the four-year terms was former
school board member Debra
Fowlkes who received just 318
votes.
"I'm excited to start a second
term on the board," said
Schofield. "I want to thank the
residents who came out to vote
and voted for me."

Worsening traffic problems
have created a dangerous gridlock along Cherry Hill Road
from Newburgh west to the
Canton Township boundary,
according to residents and city
officials. "It's a traffic nightmare," resident Roger Caldwell
said Monday, during a
Westland City Council meeting.
Caldwell spent 17 minutes
one afternoon trying to maneuver a heavily congested, halfmile stretch of Cherry Hill from
Norma Street to Newburgh. In
stark contrast, he said,
motorists treat Norma and Hix
Road like a "speedway and often
ignore stop signs.
Driving conditions have deteriorated amid residential
growth that has dumped more
traffic in the neighborhood, city
officials conceded. Moreover,
Cherry Hill narrowsfromfive
lanes to two west of Newburgh,
creating a bottleneck during
peak traffic hours.

"I feel humbled to be honored," said McClain who
admitted that the election was
a little more intense than when
he was selected to serve on the
board last fall. "I want to thank
all of the wonderful people
who supported my campaign.
I'm grateful, but I'm humbled."
McClain added that he is
thankful for the support of his
wife, children, grandchildren
and the congregation of
Annapolis Park Church of
Christ and the voters for "giving me the opportunity to
serve our district and our kids
and use the gifts I've been
blessed with."
"I look forward to continuing to work with the wonderful
people of this district, the
board people, Dr. (Greg)
Baracy and the administration," he said.

Schofield added that she was

slightly from last year's election.
"I look forward to the next
four years of working with the
board, working through the
teachers contract and budget
and just being on the board,"
she said.
Schofield carried nine of the
precincts and was top vote-getter in absentee voting. McClain
was top vote-getter in three
precincts, as was Campbell,
and the two men tied with 36
votes each in Precinct 15
(Hoover Elementary).

FROM PAGE A1
pay $50 to play sports
BY TONY BRUSCATO
STAFF WRITER
Plymouth-Canton middle
school athletes will pay a $50
fee to play sports in 2004-05 if
the Board of Education
approves Tuesday a recommendation from Supt. Jim Ryan.
Ryan said the fee will help
the middle school athletic program absorb a 10 percent — or
$32,000 — cut in its budget.
"We think there will be a
thousand kids that will play, so
the $50 will let us continue the
middle school sports programs," Ryan said.
"The money will also
help us institute cross country,
to see what type of interest
there is in that lifestyle-type
sport."
Students who receive free
lunches will not have to pay the
one-time fee, and students who
are in the reduced-pay lunch
program will only pay a portion of the charge.
Ryan said the middle school
sports programs will remain
intact next school year, but
noted there could be a restructuring of sports in the sixth,
seventh and eighth grades the
following year.
"A lot will depend on
our economic situation," Ryan
said.
"We asked for the middle
schools to take a look at the
restructuring of the seasons.
We know there are some gaps,
and there are some programs
that don't feed into the high
school, like softball.
"There's also a concern for
middle school swimming,
which is our most expensive

He'd also like to see another

On another issue, Aguwa
said he thinks it time for
Canton to become a city.
"We have the population, we
have the financial resources,"
he said. "Improvements need
to reflect growth. We should
become a city so we can run
ourselves."
What if that means higher
taxes?
"If it means to increase our
taxes, we have to do that," he
said. "Residents would pay
extra taxes, there would be
extra costs. But they would
appreciate the extra benefits."
Does he think the current
elected leadership is managing
growth well in the township.
"I think they're trying," he
said. "It's a gradual process."
And as for how the township
presently bejng managed,
Aguwa said, "They're doing a
good job. That's whythey're
there."
Calling himself a "people
person," he said, "I've always
been an advocate for the people. I'm a servant to the community. I listen to people and
do what people want. I can
empathize with people. I can
help the community to grow."
Aguwa has a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice
from Wayne State and a master of arts in guidance and
counseling from the University
of Detroit Mercy.
He's single, but engaged to

September wedding.
where's he comfortable placing
a dollar figure on it.
"Rut it's going to be costly to
make these improvements," he
said. "It wouldn't surprise me if
we're looking at a price tag of
$30 million."
He said tap fees that the
township collects whenever
new homes are connected to
the sewer system will help
defray some of the costs.
But another problem - an
even bigger problem perhaps is the issue of footing drains,
those downspouts on a house
that are connected directly to
the sanitary sewer system.
"Houses built before the
mid-'70s were built with footing drains connected to the
sanitary sewer," he said. "We
have 10,000 of those homes in
the township - roughly a third
of the existing homes."
He said that water goes to
the wastewater treatment
plant, where it is treated
unnecessarily as sanitary
sewage.
"Now is the time to examine
the footing drain issue," he
said. "A lot of communities are
currently considering a footing
drain disconnect program."
But there is a money issue
involved there, since disconnecting a footing drain from
the sanitary sewer is not a
minor project.
"The average cost is around
$6,000 per home," he said.
"That times 10,000 homes
comes out to $60 million."
Since the drains are on private property, the cost would
probably have to be borne by
the homeowner.
"In an ideal world we wouldn't be mixing storm water with
sewage," he said. "If (disconnecting those drains) is part of
the solution, we need to give
that some real consideration."

As to who should pay for
them, he said it should be paid
jointly by the township and
Wayne County.
He also said he like to make
it a community where people
come to settle down for the
long term.
"People build a house and
within two to three years it's up
for sale," he said. "They should
be able to enjoy that house and
stay for at leastfiveor 10
years."
As for the congestion along
Ford Road, Aguwa said the
road needs to be expanded.
"Maybe that would have to
be Hone just on one side." he
said. "It's not wide enough to
do both sides. But it's stop and
go traffic all the time."

Exuberant Pistons fans turn out to celebrate
BY JACK GLADDEN
STAFF WRITER
Canton's just not a party
town, like Royal Oak or downtown Plymouth. But that didn't
keep loyal Pistons fans from
celebrating their team's 100-87
win over the Los Angeles
Lakers Hiesday night to gain
the NBA championship.
"This place was packed," said
Russ Johnson, owner of the
Rusty Nail on Ford Road. "I
was here and it was jammed."
How many people were
there?
"I don't know," he said.
"Whatever it holds and more.
It was the biggest crowd since
St. Patrick's Day."
The reaction to the game
was exuberance, but not much
beyond that.
"If it had been a two-point
game, it would have been bedlam," he said.
Johnson's a longtime Pistons
fan, who remembers going
downtown to watch them play.
"You could get in for just
about nothing and then sit on
thefloor,"he said. "Last night
wasn't a ball game. They just
dominated throughout. I was
yelling as loud as anybody."
Bartender Marge Stinson
wasn't working that night, but
she watched the game from
home.
"I'm a huge Pistons fan," she
said. "My reaction? Yea!"
Longtime Canton resident
John Schwartz and retired Van
Buren Schools Superintendent
Larry Tabor were having lunch
at the Nail on Wednesday.
Although they didn't watch
the game at the bar, the two
fans watched from home.
"They played the scrubs,"
T&bor said. "The Pistons dominated throughout the series. I
was very pleased for the city of
Detroit."
Schwartz loved the game.
"I thought it was great," he
said. "They could have finished
25 points ahead." .
He said he heard people
shooting off fireworks in his
neighborhood after the game
was over.
But he didn't like the
announcers.
"The announcers were all for
L.A.," he said. "It was terrible."

Among those who gathered at Wayne and Ford Road in Westland to celebrate
the victory were Meyke Phelps of Canton and Pete Aiff of Livonia.
Norma Funke of Newport Drive suggested a room be included in the
proposed Township Hall t h a t could be used by senior citizens or
mothers and young children who reside on the southeast side of the
Township.
Dan Jacobs of A3C informed the Board of his availability to answer
questions during the item regarding the award of bjd for
architectural services for the Police/Fire and Township Hall Complex.
Project Engineer Rhett Gronevelt addressed the Board and answered
questions regarding the Special Assessment District for Plymouth
Gardens and Finch Subdivisions Paving. He also referred to a letter
from Mr. Hotchkins regarding the paved approach from the adjoining
subdivision being extended partially across his lot frontage. With
questions remaining as to whether Wayne County would require
removal and replacement of t h a t portion, the lot is left in the S.A.D.
because his lot and the lot across the street would derive benefit from
the paving project. Mr. Hotchkins was informed, however, that if the
pavement that approaches his driveway is hot touched, he would
have some consideration because his driveway has access to a paved
road now.
Mr. Mann opened the Public Hearing at 7:24 p.m.
The following residents in the proposed S.A.D. district objected to the
paving: Richard Desautel, Dan Smelzer, Michael Haselhuhn, Pat
Brothers, and Mr. and Mrs. Jendrusik. Concerns centered on the low
percentages of signatures on individual streets such as Lakeland Ct.
and Finch, the loss of trees, the possibility of increased traffic and
increased traffic speed, and the loss of country charm.

Up, up and away
Kids make like eagles and soar into the clouds
BY JACK GLADDEN
STAFF WRITER
It wasn't a great day for flying, but that didn't dampen the
spirits of the 100 or so Young
Eagles who showed up at
Mettetai Airport on Saturday.
Well, technically they
weren't all Young Eagles, but
they were young and they
wanted to fly. And that's what
the day was all about.
Sponsored by local chapter
113 of the Experimental
Aircraft Association, the annual event gives kids age 8 to 17
the chance to take to the skies
and learn what flying is all
about - from the ground up.
The original goal of the program, which was started in
1993, was to get a million kids
flying by the 100th anniversary
of the Wright brothers' first
flight, according to Dave
James of Canton, a member of
the EAA and local sponsor of
the Young Eagles.
That anniversary was Dec.
17,2003.
"We hit the goal last
October," James said. "I think
now we're up to 1.1 million
kids."
Even though the weather on
Saturday was drizzling and
dreary, the group managed to
get about 100 kids in the air, in

time.
At one point James called a
halt to the proceedings until a

"At 2,400 feet it's pretty
smooth," he said. "But above
and below that it's really choppy."
That didn't matter to
Heather Griffin, 16, of
Plymouth who attends Canton
High School and is an official
member of the Young Eagles.
"My dad's a pilot," she said.
"I've been up
about three
times with the
Young Eagles,
but I've flown a
lot more than
that."
Heather, son
of Joseph and
Lorraine Griffin,
was waiting for
the weather to
clear just a bit so
she'd get her
turn aloft.

when flying with her dad was a
kind of memorable experience.
"I took the controls for about
three seconds," she said. "Then
I flipped out and let go."
Watching a reporter taking
notes, she added, "You're not
gonna put that in the paper,
are you?"
But Abby Kirk, 9 3/4 (she
said), a fifth-grader at Nankin
Mills School in Westland, didn't seem concerned about how
she came off in print.
She was there with her
brother, David, 8, a third-grader who was there representing
his Cub Scout Pack.
Watching the weather and
waiting for her chance to go up
(for the first time) Abby was
cool and calm.
"I'm not afraid because my
mom's a security guard at
Metro Airport," she said.
And David said he wasn't
scared, either.
"My dad used to fly," he said.
Alexander, 10, and Bradley
Ryktarsyk, 12, of Livonia were
old pros at the flying event.
"They've done it before," said
their father, David Ryktarsyk.
"This is their fourth time."

"It's like flying on any bigger
plane, except it doesn't go as
high," he said. "The last time I
flew they let me take the controls and I was doing doughnuts over Walled Lake."
The only time Bradley was a
little scared was when it came
to landing.
"He was only scared because
his little brother was driving at
the time," said their father.
That would have been Alex,
who said, yes, he'd like to be a
pilot when he grows up.
Why?
"Because it's fun to fly by
yourself in the air," he said,
"and drive the plane."

OUR VIEWS
m
Township board
offers key voice
In this edition, the Canton Observer staff will begin
coverage of f h e 2 0 0 4 primary election for candidates
seeking seats on the Canton Township Board of Trustees.
A bit early? It may seem so. But an increasing number
of voters are casting their ballots absentee. A lot of voters,
consequently, are actually voting before the Aug. 3 primary election.
That's why we are beginning our coverage a bit earlier to give our readers as much information about the candidates as possible. Our coverage will include face-to-face
interviews with the candidates, as well as any public
forums or debates that may be scheduled.
We will also give candidates an opportunity to provide
us information about their campaigns, such as fund-raisers and endorsements as the season unfolds. The information will allow voters to know what candidates are up
to and the type of campaigns they are running.
Additionally, we will publish campaign finance information prior to the August primary, as well as prior to the
November general election to let voters know who is
spending what and for what, and who is contributing
cash and in-kind services to individual campaigns.
Voters are urged to take seriously the primary and general elections. While state and national politics may draw
the most widespread attention, it is local government that
remains closest to the people and the level at which voters
can have the greatest impact.
Incumbent administrators Supervisor Tom Yack, Clerk
Terry Bennett and Treasurer Elaine Kirchgatter are without challengers. Vying for the four trustees seats are
incumbents J o h n Burdziak and Melissa McLaughlin.
Karl Zarbo, who was appointed to fill the position left
vacant by Phil LaJoy, who was elected to the state House,
is also running. Political newcomers include Fred Bolden,
Todd Caccamo, Jack Hakala, Todd LaJoy, Bill Rice and
Vicki Welty.
If you have not yet registered to vote in the primary or
general elections, do it now. For the primary election, the
last day to register to vote is July 6. The last day to register for the November election is Oct. 4.
We trust this will be an interesting And lively political
season. Voters should do their part by asking questions,
seeking out the candidates and information about them,
and getting involved in the political process.
Fathers must learn
their important role
Sunday is Father's Day.
It doesn't get the attention of Mother's Day. It's often
seen as an afterthought. After all we have a day for Mom,
shouldn't we have a day for what's his name ...
Where the bond between mother and child begins in
t h e w o m b a n d grows s t r o n g f r o m t h e f i r s t caring
moments, the relationship with Dad is slower to grow
and often more prickly over time. We've designated Dad
the disciplinarian, Dad the stalwart exemplar of masculinity, Dad the primary provider, especially in those
early years when Mom takes time out from a career to be
a mother.
Times have changed and the roles of mothers and
fathers are less clearly defined. As women continue to
take a more prominent role in the workplace, we havestay-at-home fathers, who welcome the opportunity to be
a regular presence in their child's life. Many young fathers
are determined to do better than their fathers at raising
their children.
But we also have many single parent families, where
the responsibility for raising the children usually falls on
a young mother. Many young men walk away from their
responsibility. And other fathers leave their homes,
divorce their wives and do not properly provide for their
children emotionally or financially.
Attorney General Mike Cox has made it a special crusade to go after deadbeat parents (predominantly fathers)
who are not making their child support payments. Many
of these children are in financial peril because their
fathers will not live up to their responsibility.
Study after study shows that children do best in a twoparent household — a home where they are loved and
nurtured by tw;o people who love and respect each other.
It is important that every parent understand that no
job they do is more important than being a parent.
While it is important on this day to honor our fathers, it
is also a good day for fathers to reflect on what is really
important in their lives and to honor their commitments
to their children in money, time and, most important, in a
loving presence.

Not art
The owners of Canton Big Boy claimed
that the Big Boy statue is an icon. It is my
belief that the word icon merely means
image — no more, no less. It does not have
any hierarchical authority. Religious icon
serves religious purposes. Computer screens
use icons to symbolize available functions.
Commercial image (icon, if one insists) such
as logo, serves as business signature for easy
recognition or trademark to protect business
interests. It is also used for business promotion.
If I open a burger joint called Big Guy
across the street of the current Big Boy location and put a replica of the Big Boy statue
in front of my establishment, I trust that I
will be facing a major trademark infringement lawsuit. Thus, I believe the Big Boy
statue is a registered 3-D business signature
and it should abide by Canton sign ordinance.
Now, about Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup
Can paintings, in my opinion the artist used
commercial images to create his paintings,
but the paintings were not intended to serve
any commercial purposes for Campbell Soup
business. The same holds true that a painting of a nude is not the same as a naked person.
I am a student of art for over 50 years and
35 of which served as a professor of art and
design in university and college. I have
exhibited my artworks nationally and internationally. I humbly submit my following
observation.
Most serious artists, like authors or scientists, are curious people who try to keep an
open eye and open mind to contemplate on
their curiosity. Their curiosity leads them to
observe, explore, inquire, investigate, examine, and discover in areas of humanity,
nature, science and many, many more. The
resulting recordings of such cerebral and
physical activities are what I would consider
as artworks.
Creative artwork often reflects a new discovery for the artist each time he or she
explores and investigates. Making the same
images repeatedly cannot be considered as
creative artistic activity. It is because the
replica shares no exploring process required
of an artist. The replica, though looks identical to the original work, ceases to become a
piece of artwork. The Big Boy statue does
not seem to reflect the investigative process
required of a piece of artwork. However, it
does work great as a registered business logo
which protects and promotes a specific business. TTius, I think the statue should bound
by Canton sign ordinance.

He's not Bush
I am still amazed how some people still
consider the current presidential campaign
as a battle between liberals and conservatives. I am afraid that distinction can no
longer apply.
"Hie plan to invade Iraq was launched
many years ago by a secretive cabal calling
itself the Ne-conservative Club or something similar. They obviously convinced
President Bush to accept and implement
their plan to invade Iraq and create a new
world order that would turn Muslim countries into democracies.
The terrorist's attack on 9-11 did not hinder the implementation of the plan. It actually helped convince the country that attacking Iraq was in our best interests. Nothing
could have been further from the truth.
President Bush lied about weapons of mass
destruction as well as Saddam's connection
with the al-Qaeda terrorist group. Saddam
was not a threat to this country, period.
More damaging to our country was
involving most of our military resources in
Iraq while ignoring the real and present
.danger posed by Osama bin Laden and his
terrorists in Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda, thanks
to Bush's preoccupation with Iraq, is now
back in full force and again ready to attack
the U.S. We are now in a greater danger
than we have ever been before the war on
Iraq.
Because of President Bush's plan, Osama
has now a second country to operate from:
Iraq. Thanks to President Bush, Osama has
more support than he ever had. Thanks to
President Bush, the world now sees
Americans as brutal, imperialistic invaders.
We are even compared to the Nazis.
Lets not forget the countless American
soldiers who gave their lives for what history
will term Bush's Folly in Iraq.
No, this presidential election is not about
liberals and conservatives. It's between sanity and insanity and returning this country to
the control of real leaders, not a puppet controlled by others. Kerry may not be a great
choice but he is no Bush and that is good
enough for me.

In its almost 15 years, the
Canton Community
Foundation has awarded more
than $250,000 in scholarships
for higher education.

Chelsea, but
Saturday's Plymouth HighChelsea Division 2 Regional softball game at Chelsea High School
had Davey vs. Goliath written all
over it.
The Wildcats (Davey) had a roster that was stocked with sophomores and freshmen, while the
Bulldogs (Goliath) came into the
contest with an impressive 33-1-1
record along with a No. 1 ranking
in Division 2.
When it was over, Goliath, er,
Chelsea won, 3-1, but not before
the underdog Wildcats put up a
heroic struggle.
Plymouth finished the season
. with a sterling 32-5 record;
"After the game, I told the girls
to hold their heads up high
because they gave it everything
they had," said Plymouth coach
Val Canfield. "They did liothing
but positive things against
Chelsea, and the entire season for
that matter. I'm very proud of
them."
Plymouth pitcher Claire,
Ostrowski was phenomenal, limiting the Bulldogs to just three hits.
The game was tied 1-1 until the
top of the seventh when Chelsea
pushed across the winning runs
on a pair of errors and a double.
Ostrowski struck out 10 and yielded just one earned run.
"Claire did a great job, just like
she did the entire season," Canfield
said.
The Wildcats scored their lone
run in the second inning when
Madison Dresser singled and
scored on Ashley Garrett's single.
Those were the only two hits
Plymouth could manage.
Plymouth advanced to the
Regional brackets by upending
Milan, 7-6, and New Boston
Huron, 1-0, in the District tournament held at Carleton Airport

conference, the umpires ruled that Williams run counted because a Canton defensive player interfered with her between second and third base.
Chiefs derailed in quarterfinals, 4-2
Canton's softball team wasfiveouts
from advancing to the Division 1 semifinals Tuesday afternoon when an apparently incidental minor collision between a
base-runner and shortstop evolved into a
controversial, momentum-turning ruling.
After outplaying perennial powerhouse
Portage Northern through five innings,
the Chiefs eventually dropped a thrilling
4-2, extra-inning decision to the Huskies
(36-5-1). Canton finished 27-9-1.
With the Chiefs in front, 2-0, the con-
troversial play unfolded in the top of the
sixth when, with the bases loaded and one
out, Husky first baseman Ginet Gelabert
ripped a solid single to center. The runner
on third scored easily, but the runner on
second, Kaprice Williams, was thrown
out by 15 feet at home plate by Chief centerfielder Erika Perkovich.
However, as the Chiefs celebrated
Perkovich's outstanding defensive gem,
the umpires huddled ominously in the
middle of the diamond. After a three-
minute conference, the men in blue ruled
that Williams' run would count because
she was interfered with between second
and third by Canton shortstop Lauren
Delapaz.
"My shortstop was running out for the
relay after the ball was hit, and she accidentally ran into the base-runner," said
Canton coach Jim Arnold. "It wasn't her

Lacrosse team falls in finals
The never-say-die Plymouth/Canton
lacrosse team staged a dramatic comeback Saturday in the Division 4 state
championship game against Mattawan,
but fell short, 9-5, in the match played at
Troy Athens High School.
The Warriors, who finished with a 165 mark, trailed 8-1 at halftime before
making the game close in the second
half.
Plymouth/Canton jumped ahead 1-0
on John Moylan's first of two goals. The
Warriors threatened to double their lead
30 seconds later, but a shot hit the goal
post and bounced harmlessly away.
Mattawan then took over the contest,
tallying five consecutive goals to close
out the first quarter, and three more in
the second.
Plymouth/Canton showed signs of life
- early in the third quarter when it threw
in two quick goals to cut its deficit to 83. Mattawan added its final goal later in
the third before the Warriors poured in
the final two.
The Warriors' offense was paced by
Moylan, Tim Farrow (two goals) and
Mitch French (one goal). Moylan also

Short-handed PCA
upended in regional
The odds were stacked
against Plymouth
Christian Academy's baseball team Saturday prior to
its Division 4 Regional
match-up with powerful
Southfield Christian at
Allen Park Cabrini High
School.
PCA was missing its two
top offensive threats Aaron Ciborowski and Eric
Immersall - both of whom
were back at the school
taking their ACT's - and
starting catcher Drew
Gallagher* who was home
recovering from the flu.
"When the game started,
I had just three players
who were playing their
normal positions," PCA
coach Kurt Johnston
admitted.
PCA played valiantly the
first two innings, battling
to a scoreless tie. However,
the floodgates opened for
Southfield in the third
when it scored seven runs.
SC added nine more in the
fourth and mercied
Plymouth, 16-0. The
Eagles failed to get a hit in
the four-inning game.
PCA finished with a 12-6
record, which pleased
!
Johnston.
"I thought we had a very
successful season, especially considering we had 10
juniors and only three seniors on our roster," he
explainejd. "We had three
juniors who carried most
of the pitching load, so we
should rjeally be strong in
that department next year.
Andrew Shumaker started on the mound for PCA.
He held the Eagles in
check for the first two
innings before getting victimized by errors and his
own wildness in SC's
seven-run third.
Dave Bahbah and Matt
Saagman combined to
pitch the fourth and final
inning for PCA.

These two teams split their fourgame season series and were tied 4-4
before a rainout June 9.
But in their boys baseball Division
I quarterfinal game Tuesday at
Carleton Airport High School,
Catholic Central High School's varsity boys baseball team broke the season-long deadlock with Warren De
La Salle Collegiate High School wide
open.
C.C. scored four runs at their first
at bat — thanks to patience at the
plate to draw walks and timely hitting.
The team in royal blue and white
rode the lead to a 10-3 win, a 25-9
overall record and a spot in the state
semi-final Division I game at 5:30
p.m. Friday at Bailey Park in Battle
Creek.
Warren De: La Salle Collegiate
High School Starting pitcher Darrin
Desrosiers ran into some tough luck
against the C.C. Shamrocks, as he
didn't survive the first inning.
After the first two C.C. batters
worked him deep into the count to
draw opening walks, senior Ryan
Gallagher's base hit loaded the bases.
Junior Eric Vojtkofsky followed with
a shot up the middle which struck
Desrosiers in the lower back, sending
him from the game as the Shamrocks
scored their opening run.
Warren's Justin Mazur came on in
relief* but the four first-inning runs
were enough to win, behind the solid
starting pitching of Mike Monterey.
"We got down early," said Warren
Pilots Coach Brian Kelly. His team's
record fell to 22-17. "We're a scrappy
team, but we haven't been able to
score runs in bunches."

Blazers nip Brandon CC survives field,
for school's 1st title Jags to advance
Time to make room for a
new banner on the wall at
Livonia Ladywood.
The Blazers earned their
regional softball championship in school history
Saturday by beating host
Ortonville-Brandon, 1-0.
The win put Ladywood (2116) in Tuesday's Division II
quarterfinal at Hartland
against defending state
champion Chelsea (34-1-1).
"We didn't know what
expect coming out of the districts," Ladywood coach Bob
Lulek said. "We've never won
a regional and it was pretty
exciting for the kids.
"I don't think we played
better defensive game all
year. Brandon is an awesome
team. They're not going to
give it to you. You have to go
out and beat them."
\ Ladywood pitcher Lauren
jaylor allowed just three hits
^gainst the Blackhawks, who
i
"bowed out with a 24-11
record. The freshman struck
out five and did not allow a
walk in seven innings.
"Taylor was not overpowering, but she threw strikes,"
Lulek said.
Ladywood scored the
game-winning run in the
fourth inning when Jill
Schulz executed a hit-andrun singled with courtesy
runner Kasey Sheldon, who
scored all the wayfromfirst
base after Stephanie Day had
singled.
"We've been doing it (hitand-run) quite a bit this year
and I thought we'd take a
chance," Lulek said.
The Blazers got three outstanding defensive plays from
first baseman Julie St. Onge.
The big defensiye play
came in the sixth inning
when Ladywood turned a
double-play.
Schulz, the second base-
man, fired to St. Onge for
the putout at first, who then,
in turn, cut down the potential tying run at the plate
with a strike to Day, the
catcher.
Losing pitcher Laura Perry
gave up six hits, struck out
three and did not allow a
walk for Brandon.
In the semifinals, Brandon
eliminate Birmingham
Seaholm, while Ladywood
took five innings to mercy
Detroit Crockett, 12-2.
Kaitlyn Huddas gave up
just two hits, one being a 2run homer by Lisa Jones,
while striking out five and
allowing no walks.
Amanda McClellan led the
Blazers with three hits,
including a solo homer and
two RBI. Erin Hulett added
two hits and three RBI, while
Jess Blaesser contributed a 3run triple. Schulz also had
two hits and an RBI.

Brooks makes key throw
To quote a lyric from an old John Lennon
song, the Division 1 baseball regional staged
by Allen Park could only be described as
"strange days indeed."
On the eve of the state quarterfinal,
Redford Catholic Central dodged raindrops,
skirted a confusing two-day delay and averted an embarrassing coin flip Monday night to
beat the host Jaguars for the title in dramatic
fashion, 1-0.
CC (24-9) got a clutch throw from right
fielder Derek Brooks in the top of the seventh
inning for the game's final out.
The win gave coach John Salter his sixth
regional crown and a spot in the final eight
Tbesday at Carleton Airport against Catholic
League Central Division rival Warren De La
Salle (see related story).
With two outs, Allen Park runner Anthony
Savone tried to scofe the game-tying run
from second base after teammate Reid Cuddy
singled through the right side of the infield.
That's when Brooks, the senior, came up
big as CC catcher Eric Vojtkofsky took his
throw on the fly and tagged out Savone by
almost 10 feet.
"It was an exciting finish," Salter said.
"Their coach had to send him (Savone).
Brooks was playing more shallow than normal because of the (wet) field and he got on it
quickly."
CC led 1-0 with one out and a Jaguar runner on second when play was halted for nearly two hours, 40 minutes because of a thunderstorm.
Unusually soggy field conditions caused the
tournament to be delayed from Saturday. It
was one of only three of 32 regional baseball
tourneys throughout the state postponed until
Monday because of inclement weather. The
postponement call was made early Friday
afternoon by tournament manager and Allen
Park athletic director Mike Dawson.
Had the Allen Park regional not been completed by Monday, a coin flip would have
determined which remaining team would
move on to the quarterfinal.
CC scored its lone run in the opening
inning off Allen Park starter Nick Prieur.
Leadoff batter Drew Amble walked and
advanced to second on Eric Simcox's sacrifice
bunt. Ryan Gallagher followed with a walk
and Vojtkofsky singled home Amble with the
game's lone run.
CC threatened again in the second as
Brooks laid down a sacrifice bunt sandwiched between walks to Greg Marrone and
Joe Dudzinski.
But that's when Allen Park coach Glenn
Gulliver decided to make a pitching change,
going to his bullpen. He brought in reliever
Jake Richards, who kept CC off the scoreboard and yielded just two hits over the final
4 2/3 innings.
Meanwhile, CC was getting a sterling effort
on the mound from junior left-hander
Jeremy Henderson, who struck out five,
walked four and allowed just four hits in 6
1/3 innings en route to the win.
But when the rain-delay occurred and city
of Allen Park Department of Recreation
maintenance workers labored while applying
Diamond Dry, Salter elected to go with his
ace pitcher Mike Monterey following the
break. .
"Jeremy threw 86 pitches and I asked how
he felt and he seemed a little hesitant," the
CC coach said. "To have Jeremy go back out
and warm up again would have been kind of
tough. It was really an easy decision. Jeremy
pitched a great game and he picked off three
guys. He's picked off about 20 kids this year.
And nobody has ever screamed balk because
he has such a great move."
Monterey fanned Allen Park DH Ricky
Simms for the second out, but Cuddy followed with the potential game-tying RBI single, only to be denied by Brooks' timely and
accurate throw to the plate.
"It was a strange one, I've never had that
long of a rain delay," Salter said of the threeday ordeal. "They must have put down 50
bags of that dry stuff. It was playable, the
field was not a factor."
Allen Park (27-9) defeated Wayne
Memorial, 4-3 in eight innings in the morning semifinal. CC then breezed past Detroit
Redford in the other semifinal, 19-0, in three
innings (15-run mercy rule).
REDFORD CC 19, REDFORD 0: The Shamrocks rolled in Monday's
semifinal by scoring 18 runs in the second inning against Detroit
Redford {6-9).
Drew Amble paced the CC hitting attack by going 2-for-2 with
four RBI.
Ryan Gallagher, Mike Monterey and Greg Marrone also went 2for-2 with two RBI each. Anthony Sabo was 1-for-1 with two RBI.
Winning pitcher Matt Rodeigher allowed three hits, walked
three and struck out seven.

Canton's softball team rode
the "Conlon Express" to a district championship Saturday at
Temperance-Bedford High
School.
Molly Conlon, the Chiefs'
standout junior pitcher, threw
her sixth no-hitter of the season in the tournament-opening
8-0 victory over Adrian. She
followed that with a five-hitter
in a 1-0 triumph over the host
Kicking Mules.
"Molly pitched outstanding,
just like she has all year," said
Canton coach Jim Arnold.
"And the rest of the team
played well behind her, too."
Canton banged out 12 hits in
the opener, scoring three runs
in the first to set the tone for
the rest of the game.
Brittney Scero laced a tworun double in the fourth. Two

CHEFS
EROM PAGE B1
was taught. But the umpire ruled runner interference, which means the
runner gets at least one base. They
gave her an additional base as well
because they thought she would have
scored without the collision."
5
The ruling became even more significant because Canton pitcher Molly
Conlon retired the next two batters
|asily on a pop up to Delapaz and a
Strike out. If Williams would have
cjeen sent back to third base - as
many of the Canton faithful thought
$ie should have been - the Chiefs
Would have escaped the inning with a
2-1 lead. Instead, it was 2-2 and the
Huskies had seized the momentum,
r Canton failed to score in its half of
t£ie sixth and both teams went down
in order in the seventh, setting up a
dramatic eighth inning.
: Northern catcher Shannon Smith
led off the eighth with a hard-hit double up the left-centerfield alley. Three
of the next four Husky batters reached
<|n Chief errors, which resulted in two
runs and a 4-2 Canton deficit.
' Northern pitcher Mary Elise Gierke
induced the Chiefs to hit into three
groundouts in the bottom of the
eighth to seal the win.
\ "I told the girls after the game to
keep their heads up because they have
a lot to be proud of," Arnold said. "We
were one of the top eight teams in
Division 1 this year, and that says a
lot. The girls never gave up all year
and they have nothing to be ashamed
of."
Canton's bats were hotter than the
80-degree game-time temperatures in
the first inning. Lead-off batter
Brittney Scero laced a double,
advanced to third on a wild pitch, and
scored on Rachel Wade's single. After
Heather Richardson sacrificed Wade
to second, Delapaz singled Wade to
third, and Kathy Baker followed with
an RBI single to center, giving Canton
a 2-0 lead.
After Baker singled, Northern coach
Tom Hamilton visited the mound and
delivered a spirited pep talk to Gierke.
She apparently got the message as
allowed just two more base-runners
the rest of the way - a walk to Anne
Rosales in the seeond and a
Richardson single in the sixth. Gierke
finished withfivestrikeouts.
Conlon was equally effective for the

Shamrocks Coach John
Salter also praised his starting
pitcher, and his team for
improving their defense in
recent weeks.
"Our guys are really focused
this tournament. Mike
Monterey had a heck of a game
for us. He's got a fastball,
curveball; he's got good control
and doesn't get into trouble
with walks."
Monterey allowed just one
walk and had two strikeouts.
He also just allowed three hits
until the sixth inning.
With two out in the sixth,
Warren struck back with two
singles and a bloop double, to
score their final two runs.
Salter brought in centerfielder
Greg Marrone in relief.
Offensive stars for Catholic
Central included senior Drew
Amble with a single and a double, Vojtkofsky with two singles
and two RBI's, senior Joe
Dudzinski with two doubles and
an RBI, and Monterey with
three hits, a walk and two RBI's.

shows off its
gardening
talents
Donna Comer said she has gardened since she was a child. Today
she watches all the gardening shows
and says she loves to go to garden
walks.
On Saturday, it's her turn to shine
when the Farmington Garden
Club's annual Garden Walk features
her and husband Jimmie's yard
along with five others.
"When the president of the North
Farmington club came over and
said she'd nominate me, I didn't
think that they'd pick mine (for the
walk)," Comer said. "But then they
called me and I was just elated."
And she loves garden walks, anyway. "I love going on garden walks,"
Comer said. "I'm in seventh heaven."
The walk allows visitors a glimpse
into the yards of a few green
thumbs. But what does it take in
the garden to get on a garden tour?
"The gardens should be better
than ordinary" said Nan Reid,
organizer of the Farmington
Garden Walk 2004. "Some of them
are exceptional. We like to have a
mix of gardens, shade or sun."
The Farmington Garden Walk
organizers like to have a good variety, Reid said.
"One garden is like 'I Spy,'" Reid
said. Stone steps appear with a
waterfall next to it, while a sculpture appears to be peering out. "It's
whimsical and very beautiful, truly
beautiful," Reid said.
Donna and Jimmie Comer's yard
is described as artistic, with an
abundance of harmonious color,
texture and sounds and a wetlands
as a backdrop.
The yard is a small-space garden,
Comer said.
"We have lots of perennials, several rose bushes and clematis vines,"
Comer said. The yard also features
a two-tier water garden, a side yard
is highlighted with a garden of
shade plants ofhostas, hydrangeas
and ferns.
Garden accent pieces include
frogs in the pond, an iron angel,
concrete urns and rabbits. "I have a
collage of different things," Comer
said.
Peggy and Roger Maggid's garden
is also featured. "It's a cottage garden with a lot of color, flowers and
garden," Peggy Maggid said.

BY JENNA KL0ECKNER
STAFF WRITER
A yard is to a gardener what
an empty canvas is to a painter.
Just ask a few of the gardeners
whose properties are featured in
Livonia's 15th annual Garden
Walk on Saturday, June 26. (See
related chart.)
With a lot of hard work and
creativity, Gladys Gallagher and
Andrew Grifka transformed
their separate yards into something from almost nothing.
"When my husband built our
house 27 years ago, our property
was a raw lot with a few tiny
trees," Gallagher said.
And after 15 years of labor,
Grifka turned his "overgrown"
properly into what he calls his
"piece of paradise."
"I love seeing the results of ^
my work," Grifka said. "I
Jjr
enjoy watching the stuff I
put together, come together."
Gallagher now has a
patio and a deck and
the tiny trees are
now big elm and
maple trees. And
the pine trees
she planted
from
gallon buckets 25 years ago
are now 40 to 50 feet high.
Included on her property
are blue spruce trees, Japanese
maples that she said are "spectacular," clematis, vines and a
pond she put in this year.
One attraction is her trumpet
vine — a vine with orange flowers shaped like trumpets that
attracts butterflies and hummingbirds — that acts as a roof
for her patio.
"I have been trimming it for
years to make it look like a roof,"
Gallagher said.
Another is the weeping crab
apple tree in her front yard that
she trimmed to look like an
umbrella.
"My husband tells me I must
love dirt because I am the happiest when my hands and face
are dirty," Gallagher said. "I go
out and dig and just forget
about everything else."
Grifka said his yard has been a
work in process.
In his front yard is a fountain,
on the side of the house is little
pond and hosta garden, and in
the back yard is a three-tier
patio, two large ponds, another
foun tain and Japanese koi fish,
shade gardens, a raised rose garden and a large perennial garden.
Also in the back is a large
Japanese maple tree about 60
feet tall, paths leading to different areas of the yard and

Redford garden bursts with color
A
small back yard in
Redford is home to the
lovely garden of Ginny
Hoffman and Tony Morris. The
lot is long, deep and narrow
and they have used the space
to create a garden filled with
many colorful plants. Their
choice of color is outstanding.
: The beds line all the sides of
the garden and gracefully
undulate as one section leads
tb another. As I walked around
this peaceful setting, I was
astounded at the variety.
Annuals, perennials, shrubs
and trees all add their beauty.

light pink geraniums and blue
impatiens. A lot of heliotrope
adds a thread of purple
throughout the beds. Grasses
add their magic touch as do
New Guinea impatiens and
coleus with their deep rich colors.
Flower colors are repeated
throughout the gardens that
give it a settled look, not at all
cluttered. One plant gets a lot
of attention. "Many people
want to know what it is," Ginny
said. Its bright yellow rays with
deep orange/mahogany centers
are striking. It's Sneezeweed,
Helenium autumnale a relative
of the sunflower.
In a shady corner near the
patio an 'old snow ball bush' is
arrayed with Christmas lights
and a dogwood tree grows
nearby. Sweet woodruff, ferns
and hostas all grow well
together in this area. The
patio, which Tony installed, is
made of sandstone.
When I visited in early
September, most of the flowers
mentioned were still blooming.
As the weather becomes cooler,
the sedum will continue to go
from pink to a deeper shade,
pink chrysanthemums and
purple asters will bloom.
There are pleasant surprises
such as little figures and a tiny
pond nestled in a bed where a
tiny gold fish swims.
Many containers are filled
with flowers and are placed
strategically in and around the
garden. Some lead to the back
door, others are tucked in with
those in the beds. Long boxes
on the front porch are full of
pretty flowers as are other containers. The walk from the
driveway that leads to the
porch is made of flagstone, also
Tony's handiwork.
The couple has plans to
build a water garden beside
the garage next year that will
add a pleasant sound to this
restful garden.
Ginny says, "This garden is
a work in progress, we plan
and work in it equally."

Are you interested in bonsai? If so, plan to attend the
annual meeting of the Four
Seasons Bonsai Club of
Michigan Saturday and
Sunday, June 19 and 20 at the
Washington Square Building
at Washington and Fourth in
Royal Oak. Hours are 10 a.m.9 p.m. June 19, and 10 a.m.- 5
p.m. June 20. Admission if $3;
free for under age 12.
The art of bonsai is an
ancient craft that began in the
Orient, most probably in
China. Thousands of years ago
in ancient China, people went
into the woods and countryside and found small trees that
they took back to their homes
and nurtured; maintaining the
dwarf size by careful pruning
of the roots and limbs.
Ongoing demonstrations
will be conducted, bonsai
plants, pots, tools and supplies
will be for sale. Questions? Call
(248) 585-9916.
Father's Day is just around
the corner, so here's a couple of
suggestions that may be per-
fect for the man of the hour.
First, a different kind of
scarecrow can stand as a guard
in your garden to humanely
"chase" away unwanted critters
(deer, cats, dogs, raccoons,
herons, rabbits, etc.) This passive infra-red sensor is activated when an animal is 'seen.'A
three-second blast of water
from the garden hose is startling and immediate. Contech
Electronics, Inc., the manufacturer, also, has a motion detector called Cat Stop to chase
cats out of the garden by emitting a high pitched, ultrasonic
alarm. You can find the products at The Aquarium Shop,
504 N. Main St. in Royal Oak,
(Phone (248) 544-3474), and

Fix up that frosty refrigerator Keep blades sharp to mulch properly
woke up the next morning, the
freezer was cold again and the
ice maker was working. This
feeling of pride lasted about seven days and then the thing
stopped freezing and the ice
maker quit making ice.
"Does this sound like something I can fix myself or should
I call for service? Regards,
Bill."
You cleaned the condenser
under the refrigerator which is
the most important aspect of
maintenance that can be performed by a homeowner. That
should save you a lot of money
in operational costs every year
and add years of life to the
compressor.
The "snow" you observed
behind the back inside wall is
the culprit that's causing all the
problems. The evaporator coil
isfilledwith it, won't let air
travel through it and consequently, cold air is not being
dispersed throughout the
inside of both the freezer andrefrigerator. When you left it
open for a long time, the snow
melted and then air could move
through that evaporator coil.
This problem is created by a
failure to self defrost and I
believe you canfixthis yourself. Take the model and serial
number off the refrigerator and
visit your local appliance service shop and have them put it
up on their computer or film
card system.
They can show you the three

his refrigerator.

"I bought a
Kenmore
refrigerator in
1999 with an
Joe
ice and water
dispenser.
About 10 days
ago we noticed that the freezer
was warm and the ice maker
stopped working. I checked the
hose on the inside that feeds
the ice maker and found it was
not frozen. (I have had this
happen in the past.) I cleaned
all the dirt and dust under the
refrigerator to make sure that
wasn't the problem. Then, I
took the back off the inside of
the freezer and noticed a lot of
snow (frost) built up in there.
With the door opened I could
see that it was thawing pretty
quick so I left it opened until
the frost melted.
"Later I reinstalled the back
wall and connected the electrical plug back into the wall socket and decided to let it run over
night. Lo and behold, when we

defrost system and how they
can be changed and checked
out by the homeowner. The icemaker was not working because
it has a separate thermostat
built into it which must be 10
degrees or colder before it will
call for water. Once the freezer
reaches cold temperatures, the
ice maker begins to work.
A little service trick I use
when having to defrost a lot of
snow and frost like you discovered behind the wall is to use
boiling water. I would boil a
big pot of water on the range,
place it in front of the refrigerator on a wooden block and a
throw rug and use a coffee mug
to scoop and throw the boiling
water into the massive pile of
snow. I would place a thick
bath towel on the inside floor
of the freezer, which absorbed
the boiling water I was throwing in there.
During this repair, I always
took out of my toolbox my
faithful old turkey baster and
pumped some hot water down
the drain tube.
As my grandfather used to
say, "Always look down the
road ahead of your nose and
you'll see a problem before it
happens." Stay tuned.

once heard that if lawns
were considered crops,
!
they'd cover more land area
in this country than any other.
That seems like a reasonable
estimate to me. What I find
-m sort of ironic is
that if this is
true; we throw
our most popular crop away
once we "harvest" (or mow)
it.
This begs
the frequent
question: Is it
better to bag
Harry
the clippings
or to mulch?
Jaciiym
Arguments can
be made on
both sides.
Now that the monsoons
we've been experiencing may
be letting up a bit, and we can
get back into a more normal
mowing pattern, let's look at
bagging as opposed to
mulching as well as some other
lawn mowing techniques.
It really doesn't matter if
you are mulching or bagging,
using a rotary or real-type
mower, the blade must be
sharp. Dull blades whack away
at the grass, and are more likely to tear leaves than cut them.
One of my neighbors uses a
belt sander to sharpen his
mower blades right on the
mower. Another uses a big file.
We now offer Amish furniture from one of the
finest group of craftsman in the country. Dining
sets, hutches, and bedroom sets are also
available in solid oak or solid cherry with ten
different finish options.
Tables include a beautiful sofa table, end
tables and coffee tables. All pieces have a
Reslstovar Finish for heat and moisture
resistance. And all can be customized in size
to fit your decor!
If you do choose to sharpen the
blade while on the mower, be
certain to disconnect the spark
plug wire from the spark plug,
which helps keep the motor
from accidentally starting.
Be sure to remove the same
amount of material from each
side of the blade or you may
throw the mower out of balance, causing a damaging
vibration.
I like to have two blades.
That way I can have one in the
shop being sharpened, while
the other is on the mower. To
remove a blade from the
mower, first disconnect the
spark plug wire from the spark
plug.
Then, from underneath hold
on, with a rag or glove and use
a wrench to remove the bolt
holding the blade on the motor
shaft.
Reverse the process to install
a new blade. I find an
adjustable wrench can be cumbersome for this job, but if it's
all you have, use it.
It's especially important the
blade be kept sharp on
mulching mowers.
Mulching machines work by
continually cutting and re-cutting the grass clippings until
they are very fine. They are
then deposited into, not onto
the lawn.
If the blade isn't sharp, the
clippings are pulverized and
form moist clumps drop onto

the lawn. Clippings may also
stick to the underside of the
mower deck, causing the
mower to bog down, stall, or
prematurely rust the mower
deck. Grass cut with a dull
blade looks ragged and stringy
at the cut line and will often
have a white or yellowishbrown cast. Along with keeping the blade sharp, there are a
few other ways to keep large
clumps of clippings off your
lawn when mulching.
First, avoid cutting the lawn
when the grass is wet. Don't
cut more than one-third of the
height of the grass. (It's been
difficult to maintain that
length with all the rain we've
had.)
When grass gets long, that's
when bagging works best.
Don't cut too fast or cut a wide
path.
The fewer clippings under
the deck, the better the blade
can mulch.
If you are looking for a new
mower, I suggest getting one
that allows bagging or
mulching. Get one that provides sufficient horsepower to
keep the blade speed fast
enough for mulching (or about
5 horsepower or more).

Sylvan Lake sets first home, garden tour
Richard and Carol Vanker's
home is nestled in a quiet,
tree-filled neighborhood in
Sylvan Lake.
The Southern Colonial style
house, which marks its centennial this year, has a stately
mien, with a 100-year-old,
oval, stained glass window at
the peak.
The residence looks out on a
calm lake. A lush lawn and
gentle shrubs are spread in
front.
"We like sitting on the porch
watching the world go by,"
Carol said. "We've gotten to
know a lot of people through
that."
Many passersby comment on
how beautiful the house is, she
says.
Such friendliness, and such
lovely and interesting residences, are typical of Sylvan
Lake.
Whether you have wondered
about certain houses in Sylvan
Lake, or have never visited it, a
special invitation is extended
to you for next week.
The tiny (1.5 square miles,
population about 1,900), picturesque community will have
its first Home and Garden
Tour 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday, June 26 (see related
items).
The event will feature eight
homes with gardens, and two
additional gardens. Sylvan
Lake's original Interurban
train exchange and original
post office, both now private
homes, will be noted on the
tour.
A shuttle bus for visitors
needing assistance will be
available, courtesy of American
House Independent Living
Residences.
Judy Schwanitz is chairing
the event. Famed artist Eric
Weigand, who lives in one of
the featured homes, designed
the graphic logo for the tour.
The tour starting point will be
the Sylvan Lake Community
Center.
Visitors will see how the residents put their own stamp on
each home.
H O M E
Here are samples of
other houses on tour
Other houses on the Sylvan
Lake Home and Garden Tour
include:
• A bungalow that the current homeowners redecorated on their own.
Their creativity shows
everywhere, including the
charming outdoor sitting area
in front, the unusual shelving
arrangement in the living
room, and the red bathroom
inspired by a similar red
room at the Grand Hotel.
The beautiful back yard
features three spectacular
purple clematis plants.
• A Craftsman style home,
built in 1924, with flooring
milled from a lOO-year-old
hickory tree that fell during a
windstorm in 2000.
The family has done a
lot of work in the home
together, including the
ceramic tile in the basement
and the brick pavers.
• A custom-built modern
home with a reflective, silver,
barrel-vaulted roof. The house
is made of wood, steel and
expanses of glass. A large steel
beam sculpture adorns the
path to the front entrance.
• A cedar shake, cottage
style house that sits on a hill
and has a winding outside
stairway. The homeowner, a
graphic artist, designed and
handcrafted the intricate tile
work on the first floor. The
garden features 20 different
types of hostas.
• A house, originally built
in 1955 and remodeled in
1997) that has a "war room"
above the garage serving as a
multi-purpose office. The second floor also features a
wooden cupola, with an aluminum staircase, that overlooks a lake.
"We wanted (a tour with)
something for anybody," said
Marlene Toby, one of the
organizers.
"Anybody with any imagination can get some great ideas
here."
A sampling of houses featured on the tour shows how
eclectic the community is as
well as the creativity of the residents. The Vankers have lived in
their house for 26 years, raising three sons, now ages 18, 20
and 22. Their residence is the
first permanent lakeside house
built in Sylvan Lake.
The family, the third owners
of the property, added three
bedrooms and a family room,
and opened the screened-in
wooden porch.
"We tried to keep its original
(spirit) to a degree," Carol said.
Inside, the house is smaller
than what it appears from the
outside. Natural oak trim runs
throughout, and antiques are
among the furnishings.
Some of the rooms are
angled, such as the cozy living
room. Here an elegant Italian
marble fireplace stands in one
corner. The walls are a deep
cranberry, the ceiling white.
Two sofas and a small wooden chair form a conversational
space on an area rug; the sofas
and rug have similar colors in
their patterns.
Soft, sheer, white drapes
grace a window. A trunk and
small tables - one round, one
rectangular - add to the
warmth of the room.

given to the then-owner as a
birthday present. When
Zimmerman and Weber
bought the house in 1988, they
put the plans into effect.
The house - now 2,350
square feet, with a 150-squarefoot detached studio - is artistic in spirit and decor.
Paintings by Weber, paintings
bought in Cape Cod, and other
art works are arranged
throughout the rooms.
The entryway features a high
ceiling. The homeowners place
a tall tree in the space for the
holidays.
"Everybody looks forward to
Carol Vanker stands in front of her 100-year-old home, one of eight houses
featured on the first Sylvan Lake Home and Garden Tour. An oval, stained glass
window is at the peak of the residence, the first permanent lakeside house
built in the community.
seeing our Christmas tree,"
Zimmerman said.
The tone of the residence is
contemporary. Even small
areas have a spacious feel.
The living room and adjoining dining room feature white
walls, recessed lighting, and
rectangular pedestals upon
which art works are displayed.
In the living room, natural
light pours in from windows.
Sofas, a chair and an ottoman
are black leather. Wall paintings, an area rug and a coffee
table are colorful. Dishes on
the table have an Oriental and
geometric look.
In the dining room, black
barrel-style chairs surround a
round table. A glass block window fills one wall.
The former kitchen was converted into a bar and laundry
room. Weber designed the
closet doors (behind which are
the washer and dryer) and
stained glass windows. The
doors and windows feature
Wright-like patterns.
"Frank Lloyd Wright has
always been a big influence,"
Zimmerman said.
The current roomy kitchen
was built to support a crowd,
Zimmerman says. This area
has plenty of space for guests
to congregate. It also includes
a skylight, granite tops and
nutmeg-colored walls.
The back yard is a private
Eden, with a variety of flowers
and plants, ponds and a "river,"
blue slate in the walls and
walk, and bronze statues from
Thailand.
Weber and Zimmerman
designed the garden, and
designed and installed the
ponds (one of which features a
waterfall). Aqua Fina of Sylvan
Lake designed and fabricated
the "river."
"The sound of running water
is very relaxing," Zimmerman
said.

Offering constructive criticism to others can be beneficial, but only if the other person is receptive to'our
Ml- S E a s y AO l / r i l l i f « < / « M
comments. In teaching situations or during on-the-job training, constructive criticism is usually necessary to
instruct and help a person develop a trade or vocation. However, correcting someone, even in a kind or skillful manner, can be very challenging, since we are never
sure how the individual may react. Many friendships and families have been destroyed because someone has been overly critical of another person's words or •
actions. Knowing when we should offer our comments can also be difficult, and we should be fairly certain that our comments are truthful and necessary. It often
seems so easy to criticize others because we mistakenly believe that we are without fault or are such experts on most everything. The Bible tells us that we look at
the speck in our brother's eye, but we pay no attention to the log in our own (Luke 6:41). Faultfinding and being overly critical of others, especially behind their
backs, are wrong and can become habit-forming. However, kind words are good for the soul and help to build a person up.
The teay of a fool i s right i n his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

Car should be cleaned periodically
My car is constantly cluttered with
papers, toys, cans and cups. It is
also dirty inside and outside. How
can I
consistently
keep a neat,
clean car?
Domestic
Diana
foeni
Like many
areas of your
home, the car
is an easy target for clutter.
We spend a
large amount
of time in the
car: therefore
it is part of our
daily living
space.
There are many reasons why
a car is cluttered. Almost every
item in our home enter via the
car. In the age of fast foods and
a fast pace, the car is also a
restaurant on wheels. This
tends to leave a legacy of forgotten french fries under seats
and behind cushions.
Upon returning home from
school, lessons, and practices,
our kids burst from the car,
leaving their belongings
behind. Of course, we leave
things in the car all the time,
too.
You need an organized system to maintain a clean, clutter-free car.
Train family members to be
responsible to take their personal belongings into the
house each time they leave the
car. You will need to make this
a rule using rewards or consequences. Each time you arrive
home, empty the car of your
personal items and any purchases you have made. Do not
be tempted to unload the car
and dump items on the kitchen
counter. Make sure you put
everything away when you get
into the house so you do not
create another clutter area.
Keep a rotating basket in
your car. A rotating basket
works similar to the rotating
shelves in your home. The
rotating basket is a home for
temporary items such as wallpaper, library books, or a
return item. You need to take
the wallpaper to the hardware
store in order to match paint
colors for your bedroom wall,
return the library books to the
library, exchange an item at a
store. The basket in your car
will contain these items so they
are not rolling around on the
floor. It will also serve as a
reminder of errands you must
do. Take the basket back and
forth from car to house for
loading and unloading purposes.
Some items should remain
in your car. Keep a plastic
trash bag in the car to discard
items. Keep wipes for spills or
sticky hands. If your car does
not have a built-in drink holder, you may want to purchase
one.
For music listeners, a cassette or CD organizer is handy.
In the glove box or in a basket
under the seat keep car insurance and registration information, a pen, paper, coins for
tolls and parking meters, a
flashlight, and an ice scraper.
Schedule a time to wash and
vacuum your car weekly. There
are several options depending
on the weather conditions.
Wash and vacuum it yourself
at home. Fill up with gas and
drive through a car wash.
There is usually a vacuum
facility available. Pay your
child or a neighborhood child
to clean the car.
Each time you eat in the car,
prepare for a cleanup when
you arrive home. Take trash
out to prevent spoiled food
odors. Vacuum food crumbs. A
hand vacuum will work best.
You want to avoid food spills in
your car. When you transport
prepared food, put the ingredients in sealed containers. Put
the food you have cooked in a
basket or box lined with old
towels. Make sure everything
fits tightly and is secure.
Secure lids to casseroles with
rubber bands. You will want to
concentrate on your driving
rather than catching food
spills. Avoid transporting milk
products unless the container
is tightly sealed.
On one occasion I decided to
bring two gallons of hot chocolate home from a school party.
My gut feeling was to dump it
down the drain at school but I
felt that was wasteful.
Despite my anxieties about
the hot chocolate, my daughter
and I arrived home safely in
our mini-van. As I turned off
the engine, my daughter decided to come to the front of the
van, using the plastic container
that held the milk as her stepping stool. Due to the temperature of the hot chocolate, the
lid caved in sending a tidal
wave of sticky brown liquid
onto the carpet. I immediately
cleaned up the spill but within
a week the van wasfilledwith
an extremely foul odor. We had
the carpets professionally
cleaned but the smell
remained. For six months we
tried numerous things to get
rid of the odor. We used car
scents, candles, cleaners, odor
absorbents and more. Finally,
we removed the carpet and
hung it on our back fence for
several months allowing, it to
absorb the rain, snow and sun.
Moral of the story: Beware of
containers bearing milk.

2004, 90 days) to complete their portion of the repairs, with the option
of completing the repairs themselves or contracting with the Township
to complete the repairs at an additional 10% in cost for administrative
costs. The contractor will begin work the week after Labor Day and
complete the last week of October. The average cost per home, per

any home cooks love seafood, b u t they all too
often limit themselves to salmon, shrimp and
scallops.
Now comes a cookbook for the ambitious home cook:
Rick Stein's Complete Seafood, Ten Speed Press, $40.
Stein, a PBS cooking show host and owner of the
Seafood Restaurant and Padstow Seafood School ini
England, gives readers a step-by-step manual for fish
preparation.
In fact, Stein uses the first four chapters to give techniques, such as scaling and preparing a fish for the grill.
Some of the techniques are as common as butterfiying
raw shrimp for broiling to the more complex creation of
fish quenelles, a mixture of bread, milk, egg, fish pieces.
Want to learn how to cut escalopes from a salmon fillet
or prepare a pave of salmon? The book covers that.
Stein highlights the more robust flavors, too, such as
Scandinavian cure for salmon and salting fresh cod.
More than 150 recipes are included, ranging from traditional shrimp jambalaya and Maryland crab cakes, to
broiled mussels with pesto and grilled snapper with a
mango, shrimp and chile salsa.
Readers are treated to such classics as bouillabaisse
and the traditional fish a n d chips. Stein shows ambition
in the selections of pan-grilled tuna salad with guacamole

dressing up can give a certain
flair to a simple dessert.
This quick recipe calls for
broiling a combination of
banana and grapes that have
been topped with sour cream
and brown sugar, or with an
alternative topping of your
choice, perhaps flavored with
rum, or orange liqueur, or a
chocolate or caramel sauce. Use
red, green or black grapes in any
combination desired.
A gratin is usually a dish
topped with cheese or bread
crumbs, then broiled or baked
until brown on top. The term is
borrowed hereforthis dessert

highlights photos of these

A chapter also is dedicated
to seafood families from
grunters and dogfish to
mackeral and tuna. Stein
writes that he did this
because "fish are notoriously
mislabeled or sold by more
than one name."
"So in order to understand
what you are buying and to
prepare and cook it properly,
it is important to know about
the fish themselves and the
families into which they fall,"
he writes.
Complete Seafood also
organizes fish from all over
the world into groups, so you
can check his notes for fish
that can be cooked in similar
ways. Thus, if you purchase a
fish from the market, you can
check the book for a similar
recipe.

Mediterranean fish and

Complete Seafood may not
be enjoyed by the kitchen
novice or the cook that wants
simple preparation of foods.
The book highlights many
fish that are difficult to find
in this area, since the recipes
are a compilation of worldwide foods.
But if you love technique

juice is infiltrating its way
into gourmet food and drink
recipes and seems to be quite the
rage.
Pomegranates were first discovered about 3,000 B.C. at
Jericho, then Mesopotamia and
Egypt. Before the advent of agriculture, it grew in the wild and

Americas.
3n mythology, the pomegranate; symbolized re-birth. It was
believed to have had mystical
powers and medicinal value.
;In ancient Egypt this majestic
fruit was placed in King Tut's
tomb as a symbol of re-birth.
Arid later, it became a royal
insignia - appearing on the coat
of arms of Catherine of Aragon.
The Ottomans, with a passion
for flowers and fruit, often used
the pomegranate as a symbol in
embroidery.
P O M IS POP
These days, the "pom" word is
popular. A local needlecraft
group is named the
Pomegranate Guild of
Southeastern Michigan. And
pomegranate scented candles
can be found at Anthropologic
in Birmingham.
Today's health authorities
deem that fruits and veggies
deep in color are good for us.
Red grapes, green leafy spinach,
and blueberries may help fend
off disease, so it stands to reason
that purplish-red pomegranates
may also be of benefit
Research shows they're rich in
Vitamin C,flavanoids,potassium, and antioxidants - a modern scientific way of saying that
ancient cultures may have been
onto something. In the absence
of the fruit itself, you want to try
some flavorful "pom" juice - it's
sweet, yet tart and tangy.
The Los Angeles-based company, Pom Wonderful, with
farms in the San Joaquin Valley,
is a leading pomegranate and
juice producer in the United
States. TVees take up to nine
years to reach maturity and the
company markets the fruit,
which is seasonalfromfell
through winter.
The juice, however, is available year-round, and in fact, can
add some new zest to spring
food and drink recipes. Five
juice choices are 100 percent
pomegranate, or "pom" mixed
with either cherry, blueberry,
mango, or tangerine.
Fiona Posell, director of corporate communications of Pom
Wonderful, says her company is
the "front runner in pomegranate production."
"Ongoing studies are taking
place world-wide at research
institutes such as Technion in
Haifa, Israel, UCLA, and UC
Davis," Posell said. "There is evidence that the pomegranate and
its juice are highly nutritious with antioxidants and heart
health benefits."

In 1998, Gerald retired from
his marketing and advertising
career and devoted himself to

selection of breads, pastries,

your first bite of one of his

is a treat in store for you.
It is so often said man does
not live by bread alone. We recognize this truth and that our
customers and diners also have
a sweet-tooth that demands
gratification. At The
Townsend, we have the talented Taylor Brockenshire as our
executive pastry chef, Pat
Vasha, our cake baker/decorator, and Melissa Wise, who
makes the wedding cakes.
With creativity and imagination, they produce delicious
treats that are wonders to
behold.
Patloves to utilize what is in
season, so, at present, she is
enjoying working with peaches
and cherries, painstakingly
crafting tarts and other marvelous sweet delights. Her biscotti are awesome, too.
Recognizing that there is a
growing interest in low fat and
low-carb eating, she carefully
researches and fine-tunes her
creations to not only accommodate her customer's expectations but provide them with
an unforgettable experience.
We are now in the midst of
the wedding season. The
excitement, the last-minute
details, the happy couples! But,
what would a wedding reception be without a beautiful
wedding cake? A cake that has
been lovingly designed and
baked by Melissa adds the perfect touch.
Each cake she creates is an
artistic masterpiece in itself.
Melissa customizes each of her
cakes to reflect the imagination
of each bride. Her cakes not
only enjoy pride of place at
weddings here in the Hotel
and can be purchased for celebrations outside the hotel but
the "rave" is reserved for the
exquisitely wonderful blend of
flavors the cakes have.
With breads that are a dining adventure unto themselves,
Vienna tortes and biscotti to
melt away all your best intentions, and low-carb cakes that
absolutely please the palate,
The Townsend Hotel's bakery
ensures that every meal is a
delicious dining experience.
Combining the diverse set of
backgrounds, experiences and
talent to create all of these delicacies proves that variety is the
spice of life - and food.

Free credit
reports on

1 t's impossible to go online
I without some entity trying
to sell you a copy of your
credit report. Well, why pay
for something you can get
for free? According to a
recent Federal Trade
Commission ruling, the
three nationwide consumer
reporting agencies —
Equifax, Experian and
TYansUnion — will soon be
required to provide to consumers, upon request, a free
copy of their credit report
once every 12 months.
Our association is considering
enacting a rule limiting dog
leashes to a maximum of 15 feet.
There is now a provision in the
documents requiring that dogs
be leashed. Do you think this
amendment is appropriate?
I presume the board is
passing a rule or regulation
concerning the maintenance
of dogs and that the
association documents give
it the right to do so. In a
similar out of state case, the
court held that the board
had the authority to adopt
rules and regulations with
respect to pets and that the
regulation relating to the
maximum length of leashes
was not inconsistent with
the use of word "restrained"
in the condominium
declaration's pet provision.
Of course, there is always a
question as to whether or
not this constitutes a rule
which can be implemented
by the board or an
amendment to the
condominium documents
which would require coowner approval.
I saw an advertisement for a
residence Up North which stated
that I would get a Deed of
Interest In a multimillion-dollar
residence for approximately
$250,000 with residency of 40
days a year. Can you explain
what is meant by that?
In effect, what you are
buying is a timeshare
interest in a condominium
unit where you are getting a
little more than 1/12 of an
interest in the condominium
unit foir approximately
$250,000. Timeshares can
be extremely lucrative for
developers because they are
able to sell the residence if
they sell out all weeks of all
the timeshares for
substantially more than
would be the fair market
value of the residence if it
was sold to one purchaser.
In your example, if you do
the math, the revenues
generated by your developer
may well be over $6 million
for the residence which may
not command that type of a
purchase price if the unit
were sold on a complete fee
basis to a single purchaser
who had the benefit of using
it for all 12 months. You are
best advised to consult with
an attorney before entering
into any type of purchase
agreement.

Sales agent
encounters
drugs, murder,
trash & mold
MOLDY NIGHTMARE
BY NORMAN PRADY
CORRESPONDENT
Joan Downing isn't much for marijuana
or trash, but she can handle murder.
"What you don't see behind the front
door is amazing," Downing said of the
horrors that can pop up in the course of
her work. She's a real estate sales agent
with RE/MAX in the Hills, Bloomfield
Hills.
But even if you don't see it right away,
you still might know something's there,
she said.
"When I walked in, I could smell it," she
said of the house where she'd just brought
a house-hunter. "I told my customer to
wait in the foyer.
"It was bricks of marijuana being broken down into small bags to sell. There
was pounds and pounds of it, spread all
over the dining room table. What could I
do? I took my customer and left. I called
the listing agent and said, 'Hello?'"
But what if this had been Downing's
own listing? Or could it have been?
Apparently not. She said she'll have nothing to do with a house that's the scene of
ongoing criminal activity.
TRASHY
TYash? "I've seen houses so totally
trashed you can't even believe a human
being would have lived there," she said.
She remembers a house strewn with
trash, garbage and many types of waste
matter — front to back and side to side.
On the less horrible level, she said,-
"There are sellers who live in homes sadly
in need of fumigation. To many of them,
that's their way of life. As an agent, I put it
as delicately as possible, asking them to
clean up. Maybe not so delicately."
Opposed to drugs and debris, Downing
has shown that she's able to get through a
capital crime and close the sale.
'It was a house in a west side suburb,"
she said, recalling what she labels the No.
1 unusual event in her 25-year career of
selling houses. "It was challenging to write
the listing because the owner, a man in his
60s, would not let me see the master bedroom. He had the door locked and said he
was painting the room while his wife was
out of town. Turned out that's where he
killed her. He got the carpeting out, but
they found bloodstains on the mattress.
"All the time I was in the house with
him, the body was in the freezer in the
laundry room off of the kitchen," she
added.
But before a suspicious neighbor called
the police, Downing said, she'd received
an offer on the house. The news came out,
but the young couple went ahead with the
purchase.
It's a horror story with a cost in the
hundreds of thousands, he said.
. "Mold," said Henderson, a sales agent
with Quality GMAC Real Estate, Livonia.
"The roof had leaked for some time and
the mold had permeated the plasterboard
and the floors."
The two-story house, in Northville, wasn't his company's listing, Henderson said,
but the buyers had come to him for
advice.
"They'd had a friend do the inspection,
but he didn't go into the attic. They made
the purchase, moved in for a day or two,
got sick, had to move o u t Nothing about
mold on the seller's disclosure form. Now
the buyers are stuck with the mortgage,"
he said. '"There are lawsuits. It'll probably
cost more to repair than they paid —
almost $400,000.1 don't know what's
going to happen. Tear it down or what.
Can't live in it. The lesson is that you have
a qualified inspector who knows what to
look for."

The FTC published a
notice of proposed rulemaking March 19 in the Federal
Register and accepted comments until April 16. The
commission received more
than 2,300 comments from
consumers, consumer advocates, elected officials,
industry members and trade
associations before issuing
its final ruling on the matter.
Under the new rule, these
credit reporting agencies
must establish a "centralized
source" for accepting consumer requests for free credit reports, and it must
include a dedicated Internet
Web site, a toll-free telephone number and a postal
address. This new centralized source will be implemented in cumulative
stages, over a period of nine
months, starting Dec.l on
the West Coast and ending
Sept. 1,2005, on the East
Coast. Michigan should be
online by March l, 2005.
The final rule is balanced
in that it allows consumers
access to free credit reports
annually, while protecting
the credit reporting agencies
from the projected barrage
of consumer requests. The
ruling requires the agencies
to develop adequate capacity
to accept consumer requests,
and limits them to collecting
only as much personally
identifiable information as
necessary to process those
requests. It also dutifully
limits the use and disclosure
of the personally identifiable
information they collect.
Finally, the agencies will
not be allowed to be "in your
face" with advertising or
marketing that interferes
with, detracts from, or
undermines the purpose of
the centralized source.
You may get more details
on this topic from the
Federal Trade Commission's
Web site at www.ftc.gov, or
you may phone the FTC tollfree at (877) FTC-HELP.
Timothy Phillips is a mortgage
banker and newspaper columnist.
As always, you may find more
information about credit reports
and hundreds of other helpful consumer articles at the Wealth
Academy archives at
www.PhillipsHQ.com, or call tollfree at (866) 369-4516.
Homebuyers should always consult
a professional for guidance specific to their situation.

Mortgage rates higher, not expected to hurt sales
BY JEANNiNE AVERSA
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Mortgage rates moved higher, a trend
that is slowing home-mortgage refinancings but isn't expected to do much to hurt
home sales, economists said.
Rates on benchmark 30-year, fixed-rate
mortgages climbed to 6.30 percent for the
week ending June 11, up from 6.28 percent
last week, Freddie Mac, the mortgage
giant, reported June 10 in its weekly
nationwide survey of rates.
Thirty-year mortgage rates hit a low this
year of 5.38 percent during the week ending March 18. Since then, they have slowly
moved upward.
. Rates for 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages
rose this week to 5.67 percent, up from
5.63 percent. Rates for one-year
adjustable rate mortgages increased to
4.14 percent, a big jump compared with
last week's average rate of 3.98 percent.
The recent rise in mortgage rates comes
in anticipation that the Federal Reserve
will raise a key short-term interest rate for
the first time in four years on June 30.
"All eyes will be on the Fed for the next
few months at least. How aggressive or
how measured the coming rates hikes are
will determine the future direction of both
short- and long-term mortgage rates," said
Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac's chief economist.
David Lereah, chief economist at the
National Association of Realtors, is now
predicting that 30-year mortgage rates
will rise to 6.9 percent by the final quarter
of this year, which would still be considered low by historical standards.
Lereah is forecasting sales of previously
owned homes to set a new record this year
and sales of new homes to finish close to a
record high. An improved labor market
should support demand for homes, he
said.
This time a year ago, rates on 30-year
mortgages averaged 5.21 percent, rates for
15-year mortgages stood at 4.60 percent
and rates on one-year ARMs averaged
3.54 percent.

attracts dwellers
The nationwide averages for mortgage
rates do not include add-on fees known as
points. Each loan type carried an average
fee of 0.7 point this week.
The recent rise in mortgages is slowing
refinancing activity. Refinancings accounted for just 32.6 percent of total mortgage
loan applications filed last week, down
from 34.3 percent in the previous week,
the Mortgage Bankers Association said.
DEBT
The Federal Reserve also reported
Thursday that debt of American households grew at a 10.9 percent annual rate in
the first quarter of this year, up from a 7.3
percent pace in the previous quarter. A
pickup in mortgage borrowing and consumer credit was largely behind the firstquarter rise, the Fed said.
Home mortgage debt grew at a 12.5 percent rate in the first quarter, up from a 9.5
percent growth rate in the previous quarter.

iifin h o m e s
(AP) - Mayor Matthew Godfrey wants
to attract the right sort of people to live
downtown - the sort who own horses.
Godfrey said the city will provide free
use of the stables at Ogden Stadium for
those who buy homes at the Union Square,
Legacy Park and Jefferson Townhomes
developments near the downtown area of
Ogden, Utah.
"This is a pretty exciting announcement
for us because this brings a representation
of what urban housing can be," Godfrey
said. "We think that's a demographic that
lives in the community that is in a time of
their lives that they want to shed the farm
life and head to urban living."
Ogden will provide room for up to 30
horses in the stable and continue to maintain the facility.
Community Services Director John
Patterson said the facility goes virtually
unused for 11 months out of the year, with
the main activity during the Ogden Rodeo
during Ogden Pioneer Days in July.
Godfrey said the new residents will be
able to ride their horses at the rodeo arena,
or just haul them by trailer for a ride within 20 minutes of downtown.

Vibe is what the Aztek should have been: a nifty
crossover vehicle, with a lot of utility and a big dose of
personality to match.
l i i i S i
Unfortunately, when Pontiac wanted to start making
its mark in the fast-growing market for vehicles that
offered the utility of a van or station wagon with the
design possibilities of a car, what its designers first
came up with was Aztek Hie huge and ungainly looking vehicle was different, all right - but so different that,
when it came out of the chute a few years ago, it turned
into an object of ridicule and a sales flop.
Along came Vibe a couple of years later. And this
time, Pontiac got it right It's easily the most utilitarian
vehicle that Pontiac offers, with a breakthrough design
that puts it somewhere between a sports hatchback, a

impressed me. The audio system seemed especially
sonorous. I normally can't distinguish much among
pretty good sound systems in vehicles. But in the Vibe,
music sounded better than in any other small or modestly priced vehicle that I've driven in a long time. XM
Satellite adds tremendously to the entertainment
options available in any vehicle that includes it, and I'm
sure that was part of the highly satisfactory aural experience I had in Vibe as well.
Vibe's design is bold, clearly telling you from the gitgo that there's something different about this vehicle,
but it isn't huge and obnoxious as Aztek's was. (It's actually a cousin to Toyota's Matrix because they're built
from the same platforms, and to Toyota standards, at
the two companies' joint-venture plant in Fremont,
Calif.) And yet, satisfyingly, Vibe also carries traditional
Pontiac styling cues such as the brand's distinctive "cateye" headlamps, and a wide, muscular stance.
While I'm glad I didn't have to drive around toan in a
Fusion Orange-colored Vibe, the model does have a
way of making a loud visual statement with such available colors.
Base models come with front- or all-wheel-drive, and

thing to me about the Vibe experience: unsatisfactory 1
pickup from a standing position and even accelerating t
around and through regular traffic. I would have liked \
to see GM outfit even the Vibe base model with a bit i
larger and certainly sportier engine. If they had, this *
small car would have been an even bigger hit.
!"
Yet, there are always tradeoffs, and with Vibe, it's a
big plus that gas mileage is a whopping 29 miles a gal- j
Ion in city driving and 36 on the highway, making theg
base Vibe more ftiel-efficient than the 2003 Chrysler!
PT Cruiser, the 2003 Mazda Protege five-door wagon!
2.0-liter manual, and the 2003 Volkswagen Golf four-;
door HB GLS manual.
Still, it's inside that Vibe most impresses, not only
with its sound system but also with other little doodads
such as an AC plug in "the center console for plugging in
video games, laptops and cell-phone chargers. And, in
the rear, a cargo system so easy to work that, with one^
touch, the rear seats fold flat, creating a level load floor
and 54 cubic feet of cargo volume. Even the front passenger seat folds flat, creating a surface that can accommodate cargo up to eight feet long.
Maybe the car should be called Good Vibe.
