Rafferty found innocent of murder By STEVE STfflJNSKY THE FOCUS

_ ^ _

FRANKLIN — Township resident Douglas Rafferty was found innocent this week of charges he murdered 32-year-old Thomas Hemphill and dumped his body down a well. Mr. Rafferty, 34, gingerly changed out of the suit and tie he had been wearing in court the past two weeks, briefly exposing the tattoos that cover his arms and chest. Just as buoyantly, he slipped back into the much more familiar khaki uniform of the Somerset County Jail, which has dominated his wardrobe for nearly two years. Mr. Rafferty may be wearing street clothes permanently before long, however.

Monday, a Somerset County jury found him innocent of charges he murdered Mr. Hemphill Oct. 24,1990. Mr. Hemphill was shot 10 times and then buried in a well near Mr. Rafferty's trailer off Route 27 in Franklin. Mr. Rafferty maintained that he shot Mr. Hemphill in self-defense following an argument over money, when Mr. Hemphill came at him with a pitchfork. Then, with the help of a neighbor who was present at the time of the shooting, Mr. Rafferty said he hid the body in the well fearing he would be charged with murder. Despite the innocent verdict, Mr. Rafferty was returned to the jail from Superior Court Judge David G. Lucas's courtroom Monday to face charges of witness tampering in con-

nection with the case. And although he has been imprisoned since Dec. 5,1990, Mr. Rafferty still must post 10 percent of $15,000 bail set by Judge Lucas on the tampering charge. "What do you want to talk about?" Mr. Rafferty asked an interviewer, who was at immediately following the verdict. Asked for a reaction, Mr. Rafferty paused, then he shook his head and uttered, "I don't want to say anything." A few minutes earlier, his public defender, Anthony Mignella, lingered on the steps on the courthouse before heading for a celebratory lunch with fellow members of the public defender's office. "I t1 nk he was very happy," Mr. Mignella said of his client's reaction to the verdict,

which was delivered without comment following two days of deliberations. "Given the facts and the testimony and the way everything was presented to them, they must have believed it was selfdefense," Mr. Mignella said. Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Van Hise, who briefly congratulated Mr. Mignella, declined to comment on the verdict. Somerset County Public Defender William Bizub said "very few" murder trials end in acquittals, and commended Mr. Mignella for doing "as much work as any lawyer could," on the case. The state's star witness was David LaRocco, the neighbor who helped drop Mr. Hemphill's body headfirst down the weD (Please turn to page 7)

Three flee from house fire Eastern Avenue blaze ties up traffic for two hours By ROBERT GELCHION THE FOCUS

FRANKLIN - Three members of a family escaped injury Tuesday afternoon when their Easton Avenue home caught fire Cindy Porubsky and her two children, 11-year-old Victoria and 6-year-old John, were forced to flee the two-story, single-family home at 1194 Easton Ave. about 5:30 pjn., when smoke began billowing out of the structure, according to Somerset Assistant Fire Chief Kevin McKenna.

Alcohol, noise laws introduced By LQWERUSSO THE FOCUS FRANKLIN - In an effort to make the streets less noisy and alcohol free, the Township Council recently introduced two ordinances giving local police the power to issue tickets to noisy motorists and making it illegal for residents to carry open containers of alcohol while walking along the street The township health department has traditionally been responsible for following up on noise complaints. But if the pro-

lot of heavy smoke coming out of the house," he said. "There also was quite a lot of flame. But we had it under control in about 15 minutes." Mrs. Porubsky"s husband, John, was at work when the fire started. Assistant Chief McKenna said the fire appeared to have started • in the second-story bathroom, but the exact cause is still under investigation. The Fire Prevention Office for Franklin Township sent inspectors to the scene Wednesday to search for the cause, but they had not yet issued a report. There was heavy damage to the

second floor, especially to the area surrounding the bathroom, said Assistant Chief McKenna. The rest of the floor sustained extensive smoke damage and the first floor sustained heavy water damage, he said. About 60 firefighters were at the scene, which caused traffic delays along Easton Avenue for two hours. One firefighter had to be treated for smoke inhalation and another sprained his neck when he bumped his head. The fire Tuesday was the first fire this year involving a singlefamily home, according to Assistant Chief McKenna.

Partnership reports a successful year By BARBARA MENDOZA THEFOCUS BEDMINSTER - The Somerset/ Hunterdon Business and Education Partnership reported Wednesday during a luncheon at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club that it is having tremendous success with all of its programs implemented over the past year. Franklin Township Schools Superintendent Dr. Dennis Clancy, the Business and Education Partnership chairman, was among several peo•te to make a presentation at the

luncheon. According to Dana Egreczky, coordinator for the partnership, which was founded to help local schools exploit the resources of the scientific companies in the area, the non-profit organization's most successful endeavor is the Science Alliance, developed earlier this year. "We are going to report back to the community in terms of our success," Ms. Egreczky said Monday, "which has been better than we thought" The Science Alliance is a project tha brings together science teachers (Please turn to page 5) ,

Clancy shares goals for the school year FRANKLIN - Franklin Township Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dennis J. Clancy shared some of his goals for the coming school year following a Board of Education meeting last week. "We'd like to improve our achievement test scores over last year's," Dr. Clancy said at the meeting Monday, Sept. 14. He said the goal could be achieved through the SAT preparation courses and the district's increasing number of advanced placement courses. Dr. Clancy also wants to improve student participation in academics, athletics and the performing arts. Dr. Clancy also said he would like to get parents more involved in the district. These goals can be accomplished by providing more opportunity, better public relations and information on schedules, and by continuing to seek funding for parent workshops on topics including parenting skills, math and computers.

High school juniors selected as liaisons Franklin High School juniors Deana Davis and Douglas Maclvor were selected by classmates to attend and participate in Board of Education meetings as liaisons. The school board offers the opportunity to two students each year to participate in meetings. Deana and Douglas will make a report to the student government after each school board meeting, but served only as observers at the board's meeting Monday, Sept 14. Following the meeting, Douglas said he expects t i e opportunity to voice student concerns at future meetings. He said he is concerned about little things, such as seeing the board spend money on sending printing to outside vendors instead of using the high school print shop. Douglas said he approved of the board's stated goals to see a 25-point increase in the SAT scores of juniors this year over last year's junior class. He says he will be interested to see how that goal can be accomplished.

County School days may install new signal

Bronze head stolen


FRANKLIN - Sparked by complaints by residents who say they have trouble turning from a Bloomfield Avenue neighborhood onto Easton Avenue, the Somerset County Engineering Department may install another traffic light at the intersection. Township Manager John Lovell reported at a Township Council meeting earlier this month, the county said it would consider incorporating the traffic signal in its capital improvement program. In the interim, he added, the county engineering department may consider utilizing a cut-through near Century 21 on Easton Avenue as a U-turn to facilitate turns for motorists trying to turn left from Highwood Avenue, which is opposite Bloomfield Avenue, onto Easton. Currently, motorists who want to turn left onto Easton Avenue toward New Brunswick are forced to travel to the JFK Boulevard jughandle to make a U-turn. "[Officials from the engineering department] said they would do a design and then bring it back to the council," Mr. Lovell said. To install the signal, however, a rise in the road near Highwood and Bloomfield would have to be cut back, Mr. Lovell said. As it is now, the rise prohibits drivers' vision if cars are stacked at the light waiting for it to change. In other traffic areas, Mayor Robert Zaborowski commented on the improvement at the intersection of Cedar Grove Lane and New Brunswick Boad, with the longawaited traffic signal installed by the county at the urging of residents and township officials. People residing along Cedar Grove Lane said they were fearful for their lives because of the high number of vehicles traveling through the intersection. "This light is certainly an improvement there," he said. -.

Time for Fall Fun Festival SOMERVILLE - People in search of crafts, fine art and international food have to look no further next week than Main Street, as more than 200 crafts exhibits and 18 food vendors display their wares in the fifth annual Somerville Fall Fun Festival. Admission to the event Sunday, Oct. 4, is free, and traffic along Main Street in the downtown will be detoured for the day so shoppers can browse the various booths at their leisure from 10 am.-5 p.m. The rain date for the festival will be Sunday, Oct. 11. Some of the crafts and arts to be displayed include jewelry, country furniture, kaleidoscopes, clothing, decorated wicker, porcelain dolls, birdhouses, baseball cards and "designer" goldfish tanks, complete with stones and figurines. There will be activities for chil-

dren to enjoy, including pony rides, a moonwalk ride, sand art and temporary tattoos. Musical and variety entertainment includes folk singers, a magician, clowns, psychics and a sevenpiece Dixieland band. Polynesian dancers from Mele Kini School of Somerville will perform at 1 p.m. at the stage near West Coast Video on Main Street Those who want to tempt their palate can enjoy Greek, Italian, Polish and Vietnamese specialities, as well as food from local restaurants. The Fall Fun Festival will not only spotlight arts and crafts, but will emphasize the Somerville area community, its organizations and people. A section of Main Street near the Somerset County Courthouse will be devoted to local service and non-profit organizations.

Alcohol, noise ordinances introduced (Continued from page 3) posed ordinance is approved as is, the township noise control program will be administered by police. According to 'the ordinance, "the police department shall be empowered to stop any motor vehicle or motorcycle operated on a public right-ofway or public space reasonably suspected" of violating theordinance. iThe ordinance! provides For a noise control officer trained to {measure noise] and run a noise meter," said Police Chief John Blazakis. .

The police currently are prohibited from issuing summonses. The ordinance would make a "technical correction," said Chief Blazakis, and will allow officers to issue tickets under certain conditions without a noise meter reading. An officer who can hear music coming from a car 50 feet away could issue a summons without the need for a reading, the chief said. There is a gap in the current law, in which tickets can only be issued by a person trained to use a noise control device and only after the noise is measured by the device, that makes the ordinance necessary, the chief said.

Did You Know That Diets Can Make You GAIN Weight?

President Bush calls on AT&T (Continued from page 3) leave vs. the mandatory policies espoused by the Democrats, whom he called, "the other side." President Bush, whose arrival and conclusion were greeted by standing ovations, was introduced by Dr. Mary Stewart, president of the Stewart Management Group and an advocate of women's rights to compete equally in business. "Women work as hard as men and still eam less. And that is not acceptable," said Mr. Bush, framed by banners for AT&T and his own Agenda for Economic Renewal. Although the speech had been billed by campaigners beforehand as focusing on "women's issues," Mr. Bush made no mention of his anti-abortion stance. Women asked about the issue at the event were overwhelmingly pro-choice, a position also taken by several key Republican men in the area, including

Mr. Franks and Mr. Florio. However, amid Friday's partisan euphoria, GOP members from both sexes downplayed their own and the President's contrasting views on the issue, as well as its conspicuous absence from the speech. Branchburg Township Committeewoman Denise Coyle, a pro-choice Republican, said there was room in the party for both positions, and saw no need for the president to reconcile his views with those of people whose votes he sought "Everyone knows his stance on abortion," said Ms. Coyle. "I don't think there was any reason for him to. rehash it" The last word on the Presidents visit came from pro-Clinton union employees of AT&T, who were picketing the event at the entrance to the headquarters in protest of Mr. Bush's support for the North American Free Trade Agreement

The lessons begin on Monday at 1 p.m. and run for about an hour and a half. In addition to having fun kicking up their heels, the classes give seniors the incentive to get out and socialize, according to Mrs. Gaffeo. "A lot of people would never get up," she said, "Now you can't stop them. It's great." Harry J.

"Then we practice on Thursday." Some of the members have danced for a number of years, like Jennie Andrillo who has been attending the sessions since the beginning. "I've danced with the high steppers," Mrs. Andrillo -said. "I really enjoy dancing."

But you don't have to be an expert dancer to join in on the fun, Mrs. Hohn pointed out "All levels of dancers are welcomed," Mrs. Hohn said. "There is no pre-registration required. They aren't locked into anything. They can just come out and they are never locked into a number of lessons or anything." The dance sessions are open to all residents of Somerset County.

Bond issues

Another crucial day of decision looms on Nov. 3 when voters face

Unemployment, recession and deficit woes poor reasons to reject Nov. 3 referendum


he only bond question on the statewide ballot on Nov. 3 is a $345 million package dedicated to Green Acres, sewage treatment projects, inland water control, and farmland and historic site preservation. The question deserves voter support; despite tljie near^ouble-digit unemployment in New Jersey, the business recession and the forecasts ftj»r a painfully slow economic recovery. : The breakdown of funds wouM be $200 milfor Greejn Acres^ $50 millionfor farmland preservation, $25 million for historic site preservation, $20 million for dam restoration, and $50 n lillion for wastewater treatment improvements. The Greeri Acres program has created open Spaces for y^ars in the state. Tjfcie. revenue from, thebonds- site for Green Acres would be used for state projects, for grants and low-interest loans to local governments for local projects, a nd for matdiing grants to tax-exempt organizatipns.:. • y ' -•:. ; ^ v / The farmland funds provide towns and coun1a es with up to 80 percent gif the cost of buying development easements^bn farmland. Similar $50 million farmland measures approved by voters in 1981 and ]J89 have led to preservation ef 110 farms covering more than 16,000 acres.

Local governments and their priority projects would be the first to be served by these bond funds in many cases. The revenue raised for wastewater treatment systems, for example, would be used for loans to towns to build or upgrade sewage plants. The money raised by the bonds for historic preservation would go to matching grants to state agencies, local governments arid qualifying tax-exempt non-profit organizations to keep the history of the state and its towns alive into the 21st century. . Money going to inland waters restoration \ would be used fbr state projects and for lowinterest loans to local governments and to qualifying private lake associations and owners of private dams, as co-applicants with local government, for projects to restore inland waters. Funds for dam restoration would be used for state high-hazard restoration projects and for low-interest loans to local government granted, on a matching basis. The referendum offers diversity of use of the funds, controls on the quality of applicants winning grants, and another opportunity for New Jerseyans to express their consistent concern for the environment.

Take time to step back into history Recently I made a trip to the United Nations to meet with former U.S. Attorney General and former Pennsylvania Governor Dick Thornburgh who is now Under-Secretary-General for Administration and Management at the United Nations. This new assignment followed his defeat last November in the U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania. The day before I went to the city I was playing in an annual golf match with three other life-long New Jerseyans, each prominent in the public life of New Jersey. After the match I told them I was on my way to the UN. I asked each if they had ever been to the U.N. None of the four of us had ever set foot in the place! None of the four of us, it turned out, has even climbed the Statue of Liberty. None of us has ever visited Ellis Island. Maybe we're different. Maybe it's a generational thing. Just maybe my foursome is not representative. But, since my visit to the U.N., I have been asking friends the same three questions. Most have responded the same way. A few have visited one place or the other. Very few had been to the United Nations. This all got me thinking about the many wonderful treasures around us that have escaped our attention. We seem to live in a dawn-to-dusk, go-as-fast-as-youcan, over-energized little world. We don't really appreciate enough of what is available in this country and especially in this area. If there is a message, to me, it's that everyone should take the time to make plans and visit these important and historic facilities. And, of course, to visit others. I have helicoptered over and boated around the Statue of Liberty, but now am planning to visit it — on foot. More about the U.N. Frankly, I was overwhelmed by the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone I came in contact with at the U.N. from the group at the information desk, to the people that sent me through the metal detector to helpful employees who gave directions to the secretaries in Thorn

burgh's office, everyone cheerfully

tried to be nice. I saw a warm, smiling, hometown-like group of employees obviously from all over the world. Everyone was friendly and pleasant, and very few were American citizens. It all speaks quite well for an organization that seems at this moment in time to be near the top of its game. Over the years, the U.N. has had its ups and downs in public support and understanding in this country. But, in a post cold war world, it appears to have the opportunity to become the most significant force as we move to peaceful coexistence and worldwide economic-social problem solving. Under-Secretary-General Thornburgh was a delight to visit. His background in state and national politics appears to serve him well in the complex political structures that are the United Nations. Don't be like me! Don't wait too long to visit our nearby treasures. Former State Senator Ray Bateman's column returns to these pages this week after his summer sabbatical.

More than temporary success Employment agency thrives By LORIERUSSO fflE FOCUS

Allowance lets children learn saving By NANCY R. SPINNER Special to THE FOCUS Children's attitudes and values about money are affected by what they see and hear. As they watch others spend, borrow, save and share, they begin to understand the financial facts of life. Providing children (even as young as six or seven) a weekly allowance may encourage them to develop intelligent spending and saving habits and to plan ahead. An allowance is usually given to a child for the purpose of learning money management skills. It should not be tied to routine household chores or withheld as a punishment. Additional money can be earned by doing extra tasks. Some factors to consider when determining the amount of f i e allowance are: How much can the family afford? How much can the child handle? What will the allowance be used



Very young children can be given a small amount to be used entirely for "luxuries" such as a favorite snack or book. Having the choice of what to buy at the store helps children develop decision-making skills. Parents can help older children decide what their allowance will cover, such as special school supplies and clothing, youth group fees and leisure activities with friends.

Big turnout for Day of Caring By JEAN T. LEVJNE THEFOCUS


RARITAN - The United Way of Somerset County's Day of Caring sent a loud, clear message about the value of sharing. Held Sept. 16 on the grounds of Ortho Diagnostic Systems Inc., the carnival-style event kicked off the non-profit, social service agency's f.-U $6 million fund-raising campaign. Lauren A. Segal, United Way of Somerset County president, said more than 1,100 volur*eers from 26 companies, not counting an equal nur oer of county residents, turned out for the Day O;' Caring. She called it the "greatest display" of volunteerism in the area's history. "These volunteers donated 3,539 hours of their spare time Sept. 16 to 32 social service agencies supported by the United Way. Translated into dollars, this came to $36,826 worth of labor," Ms. Segal said. "It was the largest organized volunteer effort in Somerset County's history." Ms. Segal said the annual kickoff event was a "new

departure" from the usual. In past years, large corporations affiliated with the United Way's fund-raising effort would hold athletic competitions in volleyball, obstacle courses and relay races where company teams competed against each other. This year, all volunteers received a free mug for their efforts. Everyone got the chance to participate in pie eating, the basketball throw, the water balloon toss, radar pitch and limbo dance with live music. Free hot dogs and soft drinks were provided by Ortho Pharmaceutical, while pies, fruit and prizes for winners of the various competitions were donated by local merchants. Vicky Cantore, a billing clerk for Roche Biomedical Lab in Raritan, said that her company had just completed a giant food gathering project for the needy in Somerset and Union counties. "This is one of our United Way affiliated programs," explained the Raritan resident. "I'm very active in the United Way fund-raising and volunteer campaign. This Day of Caring idea with its carnival atmosphere was great."

Rutgers Prep X-C looks to carry on decade of success By JEFF HANEY THE FOCUS

Bob Dougherty has put together a lusty record over the past decade as coach of the Rutgers Prep cross country team. Seven times in the last 10 years, the boys' team has placed second at the Prep school state championships, and once — in 1990 — they won the event outright, And even though the Argonauts looked sharp iri their first meet this fall, Dougherty remains on the cautious side of optimistic. "Our goal is not to win states," the coach said, "but to remain competitive as we build


the team up again." "Build" is the key word. Coming off a season in which they went 5-3 and finished second (what else?) at states, Rutgers Prep fields a young boys team with just one senior. They do boast several promising youngsters, though, including freshman Tom McNally, the projected No. 1 man. Hell be closely followed by Paul Kermizian, the lone senior, junior John Young, and sophomore Billy Bocra. "I'm expecting big things from (McNally)," said Dougherty. "He's only been out a few weeks; I just hope he likes the sport" McNally won his first race ever, as Prep beat Ranney 20-35 in the season opener Tuesday.





Not many field hockey balls rolled into enemy nets for Franklin last year, as goals proved elusive for the Lady Warriors. In fact, the squad managed only seven tallies all season en route to a 5-8-5 record. It's somewhat of a surprise, then, that as the '92 season opens, Franklin Head Coach Pat Weinert considers the offense her club's main strength. Meanwhile, the defense remains riddled with question marks. "We lost our defense completely to graduation," said Weinert, a 24th-year mentor. "We're still not set on a defensive lineup; a lot of players are moving up from JV and they haven't clicked yet." Heading up the deep Warrior offense is a trio of senior forwards — Tonya Mitchell, Catherine Hopkin(Please turn to page 22)


Freshman Dave Bilenker hopes to shave a couple minutes off his time in order to compete with the big four ahead of him. Rounding out the Prep roster are junior rookie Paul Constantinides and freshman Doug Mayle, either of whom could surprise some people as the fall progresses. "I think the boys will be a team to be reckoned with by the end of the season," Dougherty predicted. The girls' squad, comprised of just six runners — all seniors — features Amy Holliday and Erica Golliday, the co-captains of the entire Prep team, boys and girls. They figure to (Please turn to page 23)

Franklin collected its first victory of '92 the previous day, with a 5-0 triumph over Delaware Valley. Sodbinow and Flores as did Chad Jones, Echeverria, and Parker.

Cross country previews (Continued from page 19) serve as the club's top two runners, and top two motivators. "I think that the girls certainly have great leadership in Amy and Erica," said Dougherty. "Because of the equality of competition in the Prep conference, the girls may end up placing even higher." Also competing for the Lady Argos will be Amanda Heron, Kiera Westphal, Violette Renard, and Marnee Richmond. Renard is the sister of Regis Renard, who finished second in the state for Rutgers Prep cross country a year ago.

The girls compiled a 4-3 record in '91, and ended up fourth of seven at states. Can they improve in '92? Your guess is as good as Dougherty's, since most of the girls are rookie cross country athletes. And at this point in the season, the coach believes, any of the inexperienced seniors could potentially explode into a top-notch runner. "I want to put a wait-and-see on that one — there are a lot of random elements," he said. "I have no prediction right now, except to say whatever wins we get, we'll relish them."

Happy Birthday! Your birthday is coming up soon, so you decide to throw a party for a few close friends. Instead of sending invitations directly to your friends, you run a simple ad in the paper that says "It's my birthday! Help me celebrate. Come to my house for a party on Saturday at 3 PM!" You clean house, bake a cake, set out the refreshments, and wait for your friends to arrive. They never dc.but you don't have time to wonder why. Plenty of folks arrive to help eat the cake and refreshments — total strangers. They are curious, and don't mind taking advantage of your hospitality, but they never have any intention of helping you celebrate. What happened? You wanted your close friends to come, but instead you got total strangers. Because you failed to target the group you wanted — your friends — by sending invitations, you invited the communty-at-largc. Getting the right response to an invitation is critical when selling your home too. You must attract the right buyers — qualified individuals with an interest in your home.

Who are those "right" buyers, and how can you attract them to your home? Your choice of a real estate agent may be the most important decision you will make. Look f(>- an agent who understands . .fget marketing." This effective marketing technique involves the identification of likely groups of buyers for your home. Your home • exposed to those groups to arouse their curiosity, and the results can be quite impressive. By exposing your home only to likely buyers, rather than the "community at-large", our home will sell m i quickly You benefit by fev' showings and less inconvenience to your family. You are also more likely to get full price from t-iis serious, motivated group of buyers. When selling your home, a wellplanned f rget marketing campaign can attract the right guests. Ask your real estate agent for details — then get ready to celebrate! Whether you plan to buy, sell, invest or just need information, call us anytime at (908) 658-3600 or stop in at # i Route 206, Bedminster.

•p program supervisor for the Bridgewater Township Recreation "5. Department As only the second person in the \yorld diagnosed with the rare Condition, Ms. Jensen said physicians gave her two alternatives. One was to have a pacemaker installed. The other was an end to her life. While she initially did not want the device, she did relent. And what followed were three surgeries within less than two weeks, as l|ls. Jensen's body rejected the first pacemaker. That was three years ago, and Respite some complications, Ms. Jensen is set to walk in the 6.2ijnile American Heart Association Turkey Walk Sunday, Oct. 4. But that is really only the tip of t)he iceberg for the former awardwinning swimmer. Now at 24, she does aerobics and swims five days week for more than two hours laily, a regimen she says is fairly light compared to her former exercise habits. "This is like nothing for me," in aid Ms. Jensen confidently, notng that she used to train up to six LL ours a day. 3Z However, Ms. Jensen has no CO lans to compete again, saying she pleased with the things [she's] ccomplished." Pacemakers, which are installed under the skin, serve the place of nus node cells in the heart.

Retiring to the fast fane Senior citizen groups are leaving the bingo parlor behind and looking for new adventures on the open road ByWIUJAMWESTHOVEN

WeekendPlus Editor


ome senior citizens take the "you're as young as you feel" expression a little too literally. Hey, there's nothing wrong with trying to preserve your youth, but don't forget, there are advantages to being a senior citizen, too, if and when you decide to join the club. When it comes to social activities, most people appreciate the company of people their own age. But according to Lynn Lazzara, the Senior Citizens Director in Franklin Township, a lot of folks are missing out on some great fun because they refuse to admit they are, in fact, senior citizens. "Most older people are very prejudiced," said Lazzara. "They feel that senior citizens' groups are for 'old fogeys' and they end up missing out on a lot of social interaction."-



And we're not talking about bingo, basket weaving or any of the other pastimes often associated with senior centers or clubs. Not that there's anything wrong with bingo, but such passive indoor activities often seem inadequate to the growing population of healthy, physically-active seniors looking to make the most of the free time they have following retirement or when the kids finally move out. Beyond the bingo parlor, there are many senior groups busing, flying and cruising their way to adventure. Virtually every town in New Jersey has a group organizing exciting trips to the many theaters, resorts, and other attractions the area has to offer. And we're not just talking Atlantic City, either. Ah, yes, Atlantic City, which rivals the bingo parlor as the DIANE MATFLERD/WEEKENDPLUS cliche senior destination of choice. Again, nothing A group of seniors from Hilisborough enjoy a trip around Man- wrong with Atlantic City, but there's a whole world outside the slot machine parlor and, contrary to pophattan on the Circle Line. ular opinion, there are senior citizen groups that can take you there. Take the New Brunswick Senior Resource Center, for starters, which sponsors day trips at least once a month. Marie Inzano Speak, who organizes the Center's trips, coordinates trip to Atlantic City, but she

Senior travelers meanbig bucks for smart busineses

As the senior eitfeen population continues to grow, so, too, are t i e businesses that serve them. These days, due to the increase to poputatkm and advances in the medical arts, then are more senior cftters than ever before, while a larger percentage of them are also healthy enough to lead a M, physU And this is a trend that is sure to continue. Remember, by the year 2000, the Baby-Boomer generation vM be approaching its golden years (ouch!). As you mi^rt expect, this trend has resulted hi a growth industry of epic proportions. More and more companies are catering to the needs of senior citizens, and the travel industry is no exception. "ft is very defintody something we nave reco$raed, but ait along, seniors have been great travelers," said Christine Clybum of the Unique Travel and Cruise Center in Garwood. "For one thing, seniors have more time to travel. But more and more, seniors are taking active rattier than And



also plans trips to museums, aquariums, dinner theaters and participatory mystery ttjeaters, just to name a few. Sometimes, longer trips are arranged, such as a three-day stay at the Nevelle Resort in the Catskills planned for Oct. 26-28. "If I left it up to them, they woiild go to Atlantic City every time," she said. "But I won't permit it. I think most of the people, though, enjoy the variety, and we publish a newsletter wher ; we try to clearly define what's involved with the events, because some involve more walking and activity than some people can handle. Or we let them know to bring some extra clothing or a few extra dollars for lunch." The point being, whether you're into exercise, excitement, meeting new people or just a chance to get out of town, there's good reason t( > see what your local senior citizens' group has to Dffer, "We have three separate clubs (:n Franklin), all subsidized by the township," said Lazzara. "Each runs what they call Big Bus trips — one just ran a five-day trip to Cape Cod. We also run smaller trips using our two vans, which hold 14 passengers each. This gives us a pretty wide range of activities we can arrange. They're used for trips that take two hours or less. WE also go to local theaters like George Street and Crossroads. And the Villagers Theatre has a Senior Citizens'Night." ! A lot of planning goes into thea: evi :nts as well. • Some bus trips are planned around a;particular route as opposed to the actual destination. "We planned a trip to the Hagley Museum (the former DuPont residence) for Oct 27 1o take advantage of the fall foliage," said S jeakL Others are timed to fill needs of a particular senior group. "We find that weekends are a difficult time for single seniors," said Lenore DeBkisio of the Hscataway Township Senior Citizen's Center, who added the cultural heritage festivals at the Garden State Arts Center and trips to pick-your-own fruit and vegetable farms to the list of" senior activities. "So we try to organize weekend activities for them."

Unique Travel, Hke many agencies, te coming up with more travel pack"We're finding more interest in adventure travel Bke safaris or cruises to the Antarctic. And last year, Alaska was the most-popular destination because of the war." Another popular trend is big-band cruises like the ones being run by Royal Cruise Lines, which offer five entertainment, dance contests and even extra "gentlemen hosts" to dine, dance and even play bridge with the single senior ladies. "They put more ("gentlemen hosts"} than usual on the big band cruises because of the focus on dancing," she said. John Yelencsfcs, vice president of Raritan Valley Bus Service in Edison, also notes a healthy senior citizen trade. "Its a big part of our business." said Yetencsfcs. "We take a lot of groups to Atlantic City, Broadway, dinner theaters and the Poconos, We also handle a tot of first-class tours." •

Troubleshooting remedies to alleviate this First, individuals should find a walking partner, someone whose company is enjoyed and who walks at a similar pace. This will not only make walking more enjoyable, but it will make the walkers more compliant if someone else is reiving A big problem that faces almost all on them. Beware!

This also can be remedied by stretching calves before and after exercise. Remember that stretching is an easy, painless way to prevent injuries and is well worth the time spent on them. Boredom is another major problem that walkers face. There are many

The 23 nominations, the most

By JEFFREY COHEN WeekendPlus Film Critic

• Allen has finally achieved his goal — he's become as bleak and dour as Ingmar Bergman, the filmmaker he most admires. In Husbands and Wives, his latest movie about people with too much money and too much time on their hands, Allen wrestles with all the usual problems: infidelity, sex, whether to eat Chinese or Italian. And the conclusions he reaches, even if they do cut deeper than Juliette Lewis flirts with college professor Woody Allen in the fabled director's much-anticipated new film Husbands and Wives, which was rushed into wide release on the heels of his scandalous 95 percent of Hollywood's output, are not especially worth reaching. breakup with Mia Farrow, who also stars in the movie.

But Woodygate aside, Husbands and Wives is the story of two couples Michael like an unassuming 14-year-old, and he proclaims his undying in (prepare for a shock) Manhattan: Gabe and Judy, played by Allen and love for her.

Weekend Film capsules (Continued from page 9) h i t Whoopi Goldberg stars as an oppressed history teacher in South Africa who inspires the title character, a youngteeanage girl, to become active in the struggle for freedom and a decent education. Many scenes were shot on the actual Soweto locations where black children were shot and tortured by white soldiers. The combination of celebratory dancing and slaughter may confuse some viewers, but the events as shown are closer t o real tire than many would imagine. (PG-13) SINGLES •Young habitants of a apartment building live and love in a movie that is more interesting for its showcasing of the hiphot Seattle music scene than for its quirky comic vignettes. Directed by Cameron Crowe, whose credits include the equally-hip, but more-insightful fast Times at Ridgemont High and Say Anything. With Bridget Fonda (see below), Matt Dillon (The Flamingo Kid), Kyra Sedgwick {Bom on trie Fount) of July) and Campbell Scott (Julia Roberts' cancer-stricken beau from last year's Dying Young). (PG-13) SINGLE WHITE FEMALE •Bridget Fonda stars as a young New Yorker who opens her home to the roommate from hell (Jennifer Jason Lee),

a mousy psycho whose obsession with her roomie leads to murder and mayhem. (R) SCHOOL TIES •Working-class football hero is recruited by an exclusive prep school in the 1950s and becomes the Big Man On Campus. His school and schoolmates turn on him, however, when his Jewish heritage is revealed. (PG-13) SNEAKERS •ft Outstanding cast, led by Robert Redford, stars in this slick blend of comedy, action and thrills concerning a group of electronic security experts up to their ears in intrigue. Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams), the cast also features Dan Ackroyd, Ben Kingsley (Ghandi), Mary McDonnell (Dances With wolves), River Phoenix and Sidney Poitier. (PG-13) TWIN PEAKS - FIRE WALK WITH ME •Director David Lynch proves being removed from the confines of network censorship doesn't always result in a better product as he transfers his landmark television show to the big screen, there's the typcical formula of sex, violence, sleazy characters and oddball imagery, but there's nothing terribly original to interest to anyone outside the fraternity of fanatical Twin "Peakers," who hopefully

have found other hobbies by now. For the faithful, however, it's fairly worthwhile to witness the events that culminated in the death of Laura Palmer. (R) 3NINJAS •A couple of pre-teenage mutant turtle wannabees are trained by an old master to save the day. Live action from the Buena Vista (Disney) folks, who prove once again that when it comes to kids movies, they ought to stick to cartoons. (PG) UNFORGIVEN £ Publicized as a typical Clint Eastwood action-western, Unforgiven is the high point of Eastwood's directorial career. He's also no slouch in the acting department, starring as a retired gunslinger, now a destitute widower with young children, who is recruited to hunt down a gang of outlaws who sliced up and disfigured a local prostitute. Eastwood is only after the reward money, but gets more than he bargained for in the process. So do the bad guys and a self-righteous sheriff played by Gene Hackman. (R) UNIVERSAL SOLDIER •Two accents for the price of one as action figures JeanClaude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren (did you ever wonder why he abbreviates his first name?) play secretly-

cryogenized, semi-cybernetic Vietnam Veterans thawed out for action in the '90s. Naturally, things go wrong, things begin to blow up, bodies begin t o lose their structural integrity and motor vehicles start t o go really fast. Still, not bad for the genre. (R) WHERE THE DAY TAKES YOU •A strung-out "family" of street kids beg, steal, hustle and look out for each other in seedy Los Angeles. With Dermot Mulroney, Sean Astin, Balthazar Getty and Lara Flynn Boyle. (R) WHISPERS IN THE DARK •Annabella Sciorra (The Hand That Rods the Cradle, Jungle Fever) stars in this railed erotic mystery-thriller about a psycologist who becomes involved with the lover of a murdered patient and suspects he may be the murderer. Save your money and wait tor the video. Co-stars Jamey Sheridan, Jill Clayburgh and Alan A d a . (R) WIND •Visually-impressive epic that dramatizes the pursuit of yachting's America's Cup by a fictional team of sailors and designers led by Matthew Modine (Blrtiy, Memphis Belle). Light on plot, but director Carroll Ballard (The Black Saloon, Never Cry Wolf) keeps things interesting with stunning visuals both on land and sea. With Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing and Cliff Robertson. (PG-13)

Sidney Poitier and Robert Redford are members of an underground security team in the high-tech caper Sneakers, director Phil Alden Robinson's first effort since Field of Dreams.

Southern-exposure suits Shakespeare

Reliving the Lindbergh trial

NJ. Shakespeare Festival presenting 'Much Ado' with a dash of Dixie

Due to unprecedented demand, the third annual production of Lindber&i and Hauptmann, the Trial of trie Century. wiH continue with weekend performances on Sept. 25-27 and Oct. 2-4.

By MICHAEL P. SCASSERRA WeekendPlus Writer

at the Shakespearian text has so often in recent years been grafted onto new settings, settings as diverse as the 19th century American west, modern-day Brooklyn, and a nebulous, postapocalyptic future, strikes the occasional literary or theatrical purist as blasphemy. Ironically, these same scholarly types are the ones who often trace back to Shakespearian texts the narrative and thematic origins of everything from Hollywood's screwball comedies of the 1930s to modern television drama. Director Jimmy Bohr, who is directing Much Ado About Nothing as - the final production of the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival's current season, concentrates more on enlightening the Shakespearian text, thereby making it more accessible for American audiences, than in pandering to the purists who favor a traditional rendering of "The Immortal Bard's" work. "I don't think there are many purists left anyway," says Bohr. "I hope we've gotten beyond that." One need not be an English scholar or even a theater enthusiast to have some familiarity with the classic story of Much Ado About Nothing, the romantic comedy which revolves around Beatrice and Benedick, perhaps Shakespeare's best-known comic lovers, as they fight to save the reputation of the virtuous young Hero and thus reunite her with her lover, Claudio. Bohr has staged this presentation with an unusual twist; working closely with his design staff, director Jimmy Bohr has switched the setting of the play from 17th century Messina to the Antebellum South of the mid-19th century, the American past of plantations, petticoats, and a very particular brand of propriety. Bohr, whose previous credits include last season's New Jersey Shakespeare Festival production of Dark of the Moon as well as numerous off-Broadway and regional theater productions, believes that "by putting a classic play in a different setting, you don't change the play. You just give it new life." Shakespeare's text, he explains, has "remained intact Nothing has been changed." "I don't move a period just for the sake of moving it," the director says. "I am only interested in doing it if I think the change will enlighten the play and give the audience a fresh view. One must make sure the intellectual and psychological milieu of the play sits well with the period being used. Fve seen Shakespeare moved to all kinds of periods where it doesn't make any sense." Costumje designer B. Christine McDowell, whose previous credits include Shakespeare's The Tempest and Dark of the Moon, both part of last year's New Jersey Shakespeare Festival, agrees with Bohr about the adaptability of Shakespeare's plays. "The plays are able to withstand the changes, and I think that it's very easy to do because Shakespeare deals so much with human, emotion that the settings aren't always so important," she says. "In the Antebellum south, like in Shakespeare's England, there was a strong code of chivalry. In both settings, just being seen with a man in a garden could be enough to ruin a woman's reputation." Bohr chose the Antebellum south for this production largely because of its similarities with the original Elizabethan setting of the play. "Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy of wit and charm, and very much abojut hospitality and congeniality," Bohr explains. "A highly romanticised version of the plantation society of the Antebellum south, around th e early period of the Civil War, seemed absolutely perfect. "Anothe x big consideration was the play's beautiful language. Today, standard i American English is really rather flat and unexpressive, but

Based on the famous trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann. who was convicted and executed in 1935 for the kidnapping of Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. Kon of the famous aviator), the reenactment takes place in the same Hunterdon County Courthouse in Remington where the original trial, which attracted international attention, was held. Lindbergh was kidnapped from his home in nearby Hopewell.

Laura Sametz and Thomas Schall model the period costumes being employed for the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival's season-ending production of Much Mo About Nothing, which director Jimmy Bohr has set in the 19th century American south. the American southern accent is so musical, so richly expressive and energetic, we are able to hear the play's language with a fresh ear." In fact, the director says, scholars have maintained that "the American southern accent is the closest thing we have today to Elizabethan English." To create the 30 costumes, which are worn by the production's cast of 20 members, McDowell researched the American south of the 1860s. "For this particular production, we don't have the budget or the staff to build all of the costumes from scratch," McDowell explains. "What I do is design the costumes as I see them, then I find things that come close to my ideal or can be adapted to suit that ideal. A lot of the costumes for this production are rented, but the finished products are for the most part just like the designs I envisioned, and that doesn't happen all the time." Among the visually sumptuous highlights are Hero's wedding dress, a traditional white gown elaborately decorated with lace and sprays of lilacs, and, for the final scene of the production, an array of the voluminous, flounced dresses and veiled hats which McDowell says "take up a lot of room on stage." Many of the men's costumes are confederate military uniforms for which the designer took some liberties by including extra embellishment which is admittedly more theatrical than historically accurate. "In a production like this, you have to strike a balance between historical accuracy and other factors," McDowell concludes. "There will always be some purists, but if we create a complete world on-stage, then the audience doesn't question it." Much Ado About Nothing, through Oct. 10 at the Drew University Bowne Theatre, Route 24, Madison. Performances Tuesday-Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m. Matinee performances 2 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. Tickets $1430; student rush tickets $7. (201) 408-5600.

The production, which has played to tumaway crowds for die past two years, was written by Harry and Fteva Kazman of Raritan Township.

Weekend Villagers open new season with chilling 'Agnes of God' he Villagers Theatre in Somerset opens its 1992-93 season on Friday, Sept. 25, with the premiere of the award-wining drama drama Agnes of God. The psychological thriller, which debuted on Broadway in 1982 with a cast that included Elizabeth Ashley, Geraldine Page and Amanda Plummer (who won a Tony for her efforts in the title role), is based on the true story of a young nun who gave birth in a convent to a baby later found dead. It was assumed someone killed the baby to prevent a scandal, but the episode remains unsolved. In Agnes of God, playwright John Pielmeir speculates on what might have actually happened. The drama, though, goes beyond the mystery of the troubled young nun, played by Diane Mostello. The play revolves around three women — Sister Agnes, her Mother Superior (played by Cheyanne Boyd), and a court-appointed psychiatrist (played by wheelchair-mobile actress Kitty Lunn), whose job it is to evaluate Agnes' mental capacity to stand trial. During the course of the investigation, all three women are forced to face some harsh reality in their own lives and re-examine


the meaning of faith and their commitment of love. Agnes of God is being produced jointly by the Villagers Theatre and Very Special Arts New Jersey, an organization dedicated to providing expanded arts opportunities to the more than one million New Jersey residents with disabilities. The Villagers Theatre has housed all of VSA/NJs major productions since VSA/NJ began back in 1988. "We are delighted to cosponsor Agnes of God with the Villagers Theatre, which has traditionally opened its doors to people with disabilities," said Vera Schwartz, Executive Director of the VSA/NJ. Indeed, the theater is all on one level with wheelchair-accessible seating locations and bathrooms. A listening-enhancement system is also available, as are Braille and enlarged-type programs. Additionally, one performance (call for date and time) will be sign language-interpreted, and a pre-show audio and tactile description of the set may be scheduled by appointment. Agnes of God, Weekend performances Sept 25Oct 18 at the Villagers Theatre, 475 Demott Lane, Somerset. Tickets $12. (908) 873-2710.

Cheyanne Boyd and Diane Mostello star in the Villagers Theatre production of Agnes of God, which opens on Friday, Sept. 25.


Montgomery sisters debut in 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof To famous thespians like JoBeth Williams and Pat Hingle, performing onstage before a discerning crowd of Princeton theater-goers is no big thing. But for StetanieS(*ussel, 9, of Montgomery, aral her sister Madeline, 6, the McCarter Theatre production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which stars Williams and Hingte and opens on Friday, Sept 25, marks their acting debut So there should be some serious nail-biting backstage, right? Wrong. "it's fun," said Stefanie, who is in the fourth grade at Orchard Road School. "Everything's fun." The unflappable Stefanie also has a strong grip on her character, Polly, one of five child parts in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Tennessee Williams' classic. "I don't know much about her except she's bratty like the rest of them," said Stefanie. "I'm the second-brattiest," chimed in Madeline, a first-grader at Burnt Hill Road School. Madeline added that "holding the sparklers" during a celebration scene was alternately "the hardest" and "most fun" part of her role. So how do a pair of young actresses, as pretty and as outgoing as they are, manage to

win parts in such a major production? It started with their participation in the McCarter Youth Conservatory prgram over the summer. From there, they were invited to audition ('Triey asked us to sing'Happy Birthday," " said Stefanie) and, after a few callbacks, they were in. "They were very nice about it," said their mother, Hannah Schussel. "They asked about when they would be in school and when they would be available to rehearse, and then we worked out a schedule. They were very flexible." And how have the young ladies gotten along with the big stars? Each expressed affection for both leads, although Williams was taken to task by Madeline for one fault - "She smokes!" Well, nobody's perfect, Madeline. As far as their career is concerned, Hannah is keeping a watchful eye on how her daughters handle this first assignment She's wellaware of the unfortunate track record of many child actors, but so far, so good. "It's a lot of work, but as long as they enjoy it, why not?" she said. "We always say we wont push them. Well see how it goes and go with that" -WOliamWesthoven

Eat, drink and be merry Big Daddy's offers much more than just good food By MICKI PULSINELLJ Culinary Correspondent ; are many faces to Big Daddy's in New Brunswick. At first glance, you would think it was a nightclub because of the outside sign advertising live music. When you enter to dine, you are seated in a dining room of brick walls and a flagstone floor, with the bar straight ahead. There are two separate dining areas. One is directly in front of you walk in, while there is another smaller area to the right of the bar. We dined in the front area. This was a combination of high booths and tables. There is no separation of bar and dining room. Well, this evokes another interpretation. Seated at the bar are couples of various ages. They all seem to know each other. Now Big Daddy's looks like a friendly neighborhood tavern. Beyond the bar is the nightclub area of AUGUSTO MENEZES/WEEKENDPLUS Big Daddy's.

Tips From Liz When dining out, people want to enjoy themselves. After observing patrons, I can give you some advice to make eating out a truly relaxing time. Never be Impatient. Good food takes time to prepare, and if you must wait for a table, It is a guarantee that the restaurant has a fine reputation if they are busy during this recession. Whe ordering, always chose an entree which is a special favorite. The waitress usually can recommend what is the best Item to order. At ScarpelHno's any one of Grandma's original recipes Is always a winner. Never select steak at a restaurant which specializes in fish. If you are on a special diet, ask if you ban have your food prepared to order. We have a low fat menu which has very delicious entrees to select. N you order something that is not what you expected, tell your waitress immediately. She can bring you something else, and your dinner will be just the way you want It. This week, ask for Liz and receive one entree at half price with the purchase of another. One special per table.

O'Connor's -SoM^ny Ways To Make You Happy •


Wine With Reason Watching Mike Benziger, of the Glen Ellen and Benziger Vineyards, give a tasting has to be like having dinner with Robin Williams. He Is all energy; racing around the room, asking everyone their opinion, diagraming his answers on a blackboard. But, while Mike could be entertaining, he also showed there was a time to be serious. Very serious. "When we first went out to California, we wanted to be like everyone else. We wanted to have boutique, expensive, high fckrtng' wines. But, when we went to distributors, they dkJnl even want to talk to us. When they finally did see us, they at asked the same thing: 'What are you guys going to do that's unique?'." As you' might know, in the early eighties Glen Ellen did something very unique, they came into the market place with the "Fighting Varietals"; very good cabernets and nhardonnays at reasonable prices. The Proprietor's Reserve program also changed the way people look at table wines, giving us blended wines that were both good with food, and pleasant by themselves. "We don't like the word "quality" at our wineries." Mike Says. "Quality Is static. We believe in "constantly improved quality". One way developed at Glen Ellen to pursue this is the Farming for Flavors Program. In 1991, the winery had 489 separate lots of vines and 240 growers. Each vineyard is chosen to produce a specific flavor that will be blended with [the other lots to produce the Glen Emn style. In this way, Glen Ellen can guarantee its customers ttie same, consistently good tasting bottle of wine, despite problems the vintage may give them. It sounds like a scientific formula; which area of Sonoma has the best berry flavors? Where can you get mint? How can we control the canopytoproduce more pineapple flavors in Napa? But, between the researchers at the wineries and the grape growers in the field, they have It all figured out The Glen Ellen Proprietor's Reserve White has a new package. The wine itself is very clean, toasty and with a lot of good citrus flavors. The Benziger Fume Blanc Is not a grassy monster. They have concentrated on more of the lovely herbal and melon flavors. This wine went marvelously with the Monkfish we were served. The 1990 Benziger Chardonnay was one of my favorites tons of apple and pineapple flavors, a healthy dose of oak, and a long warm finish. I personally fell in love with the 1989 Benziger Mertot. This Is a wine that pairs well with food but has enough going for It to sip alone. Cherry and dark berries on the nose, a little bit of spice, all of this following through in the taste. No heavy tannins here; Just enough to pjVB a bit of structure and all interest. If the Benziger Family hadn't decided to something "unique", I'm sure they would have succeeded making blockbuster wines anyway. But, my tastebuds and my pocketbook are both glad they decided to be different

Buiek Park Avenue Ultra is 'supercharged' luxury car



The Buick Park Avenue Ultra remains the flagship of the company's luxury car lineup. Since it made its debut in 1990 as a 1991 model, the Ultra has been at the forefront of the Buick fleet of sedans and coupes. It has drawn praise from all facets of the media for its design and performance. The latest Ultra, except for a few trim revisions, doesn't look significantly different from its predecessor. But that's not to say that improvements and changes have not been made. In my original review I wrote "...the Ultra is not a flawless wonder car, but it takes a long step in the right direction to bring to the, U.S. domestic car buyer a well thought-out luxury vehicle which takes into account the results of consumer surveys and consideration of buyers desires balanced against our government's safety and ecological mandates." In the summer of 1991, a special group of 150 Park Avenue Ultras came off the assembly line fitted with a supercharger to boost the horsepower to luxury car performance levels. The relatively small

unit increased horsepower from 170 to 205, and torque up to 260 foot pounds. Based on the satisfactory results of this small sample, Buick said "go" to putting the Eaton supercharger on all of its 1992 and later Ultras. In a few words, this newest "type of supercharger outperforms turbo charging by delivering a broad band of power (torque) for quick pickup in passing and merging situations without turbo throttle lag. The old supercharger problems of noise and power drain have been minimized by innovative engineering, and except for slight surge in power I found it difficult to tell when the supercharger kicked in. APPEARANCE: The Ultra retains its classic design with its rounded lines, a long hood and rear deck, near-flush glass, some b right trim, and alloy wheels shod with Goodyear Eagle GA touring tires. Contrasting color plastic cladding covers the bumpers and provides a two-tone paint effect on the side body for practical body-side damage protection. COMFORT: Everything one would expect in a luxury sixpassenger touring sedan is either part of the original equipment or the prestige option package (SE).

Power front seats, windows, side mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, upgrade sound system with CD player, remote door locks, dual visors, power trunk pull-down and an attention commanding 4note horn, The large fiat trunk provides lots of storage space, and Comfortemp allows individual front seat temperature control. ROADABIUTY: When fitted with the optional Grand Touring package which includes a firmer suspension, alloy wheels, Goodyear Eagle GA Touring tires, and traction control (a bargain at $111 extra), the Ultra drives predictably, fairly smoothly and comfortably. Also, variable assist power steering and automatic ride level control

contribute to on-the-road comfort For safely, anti-lock brakes, drivers air bag and three-point safety belts are standard.
