Officials: Resistance will decrease if need is understood

WESTFIELD — Two downtown business heavyweights, the Downtown Westfield Corporation and the Westfield Chamber of Commerce, have come together to voice their support of a twotiered parking facility. The Westfield downtown area,

which according to DWC Executive Director Sherry Cronin is a vital asset to the entire community, is risking its economic viability if additional parking capacity cannot be developed, Cronin said. "Every business needs tools to

work, and downtown Westfield needs parking to keep the downtown vital," said Cronin. "We should not take the downtown for granted." Cronin noted that a vital, thriving downtown plays a big part in keeping Westfield proper-

ty values higher, and residents have a vested interest in that effort. "We are concerned people who have come out to say 'enough is enough,"' Cronin said. "It's time people knew more succinctly what our thoughts are and let people know the facts and edu-

"We are much in favor of additional parking in Westfield," said Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Debbie Schmidt. "It is very much needed. It's at a criti(Continued on page A-8) ;

the town? The Westfield problem is primarily in the downtown area. Try crossing any street, at the crosswalk, and it is evident that there is no respect for the rights of pedestrians. I have had a couple of near-misses, as a pedestrian, during my walks and/or shopping. Westfield should be paying us to walk their streets to shop — it's dangerous. When I walk on East Broad Street, cars are driving 35 mph from the Temple Emanu-El area into town. Cars are above the speed limit passing the police station daily — that's where the police should be on the lookout! Many cars driving through downtown Westfield are primarily residents of Westfield. The Westfield residents would run down a pedestrian because they are in a rush. They disregard the downtown speed and the rights of pedestrians, The intersection of East Broad Street and Central Avenue is only safe with the presence of a police officer. If the officer is not present, traffic is dangerous! Perhaps a traffic light should be installed or a crossway-walking bridge to eliminate the danger to shoppers, moviegoers and walkers. After all, the downtown shoppers are needed to keep taxes down and retailers in business. I believe that the SOS plan should be implemented closer to the downtown area before fatalities increase. The problem is on North Avenue and South Avenue as well. Westfield has a beautiful downtown — it's a shame people can't enjoy it and make it safe for everyone! SUSAN KALKSTEIN Scotch Plains

9 Libertarian Edgerton is 'logical choice party apparatus in Trenton want to maintain To The Editor: Bob Franks announced in Kenihvorth that as a candidate for governor of New Jersey, he would "reform Trenton." He alao pledged that he would seek to curb special interests, call for direct initiative and referendum, and seek to implement term limits on members of the state Senate and Assembly. These are all good campaign promises from Mr. Franks. The only problem is the fact that as an assemblyman from Union County in the early 1990s, and also as chairman of the New Jersey Republican Party back then, he made these same promises when Republicans took control of the state Senate nnd Assembly in 1991. Once he succeeded in getting Republicans into the majority, he did not get any of these measures passed, In 1982 he even failed. There ie an old saying, "Fool me once, ahame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." Mr. Franks, if he is the Republican choice to run for governor, will not manage to carry out any of these pledges. Count on it! He is only in this race because of the fact that the New Jersey Republicnn Party wants to prevent anti-reform conservative Bret Sehundler from getting the nomination, nnd because those who run the

power at all cost. Thus, there is no question that Mr. Franks is nothing more than the stooge of the party bosses in Trenton. A puppet doing their bidding, if you will. The people of New Jersey want a governor that they can be proud of. That when a promise is made, it is kept. That puts the interests of the people first. That is why Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate Mark Edgerton is the logical choice. He believes in freedom. He is a true reformer when it comes to cutting taxes and other issues, and above all else he is the true outsider in this race. He is the real McCoy. James McGreevey, Bob Franks and Bret Schundler don't even come close. For them to claim that they are outsiders is comical, not to mention ridiculous. They are embarrassing themselves. To find out more about Libertarian Mark Edgerton, you can call him directly at Edgerton for Governor campaign headquarters at (973) 601-1900 or you can contact him at www.markedgerton.com. You'll be glad you did, and you'll agree that if you care about the future of New Jersey, it will be worth your while. ALEX PUGLIESE Konltworth

There's a scene in the classic sitcom "Cheers" where Indiana farmboy Woody explains how he deals with life's problems — by cramming his feelings and emotions into a little box," and when the going gets really tough and the box seems full, stuffing it more, fighting harder and harder to hold it all in. Woody walks away and psychiatrist Frasier Crane says dryly, Tick, tick, tick..." I hear that ticking myself sometimes, rhythmic and ominous, clacking away in the background. Little and large irritants can get my inner rage boiling like a pot of mean soup. The strange thing is, I'm no Woody — I wear it all on my sleeve, baby, like a good, hot-blooded Italian. Thanks, mom. I have been known, on occasion, to lose my cool (if those closest to me will please stop chuckling, I will continue... thank you). Sometimes, things that would inspire a "what are you going to do?" shrug in average people set off in me a minitirade, leave me hopping mad and grousing about the injustice of it all, shouting my opinions like a deranged town crier and plotting a swift, cold revenge. More than once, friends and family have commented on my purplish complexion, when something really gets me going. Much more often than I would prefer, I find, myself mad as hell and unable taf" take it anymore, and this, I have ' decided, is no way to live. Fve gotta chill out. Stress is a killer. Anger manage- { ment problems can lead to strokes, • heart attacks, panic attacks and a whole slew of mental woes, and while I'm not advocating the stuffing of feelings into a hypothetical box, surely there is a happy medium. There must be a way to cope that falls somewhere between ire and silence. I need more Fonzie, less fury. Step One, I believe, is to step back, assess annoyances only after a few deep breaths, at the very least. Not every grievance requires an immediate, heated response. When opposing "journalists" go online and childishly — and incorrectly — accuse your newspaper of being inaccurate, for instance, the answer is not to call them up and set them straight; the answer lies along the high road, in understanding that someone else's delusions can't really hurt you. Step Two, Fm afraid, is to consider the possibility that I'm not always right. This is no minor thing, after youVe spent more than three decades convincing yourself of your own magnificence. When you get into a work-related beef with an outside agency, for instance, resolution may only be possible through concession, even a dose of mea culpa. Mostly with Lisa's help, Fm beginning to accept that sometimes, on personal and professional levels, just because I think it don't make it so. Step Three is less coffee. At least, the occasional decaf. A wise man once noted This too shall pass," and that really does apply to many life situations. Money woes, work problems, personal issues — there really is nothing everyday life can throw at you that can't be handled better with a little serenity. Tins and needles, needles and pins," another wise man noted, "a happy man is a man who grins." You know, I feel better just writing all this. Talk about cheap therapy! Tony Soprano can keep his shrink ... I'll just type it all out. Next week, maybe we'll discuss those little voices in my head — they mostly give me good advice, but something tells me they shouldn't be there. And what about that frozen cappuccino machine at the local Wawa ... hnlf the time, the stupid thing is busted! What the hell is up with that? And aggressive drivers ... they won't be happy until all innocent motorists are dead! Not to mention the endless, intolerable traffic in tliis state ... And don't even get me started on media-bashers! I wouldn't be so pnrnnoid if everyone would stop plottinc fo against me ...

Improve your home New schedule for Elizabethtown Gas meter-readets with a power wash Your house is one of your most valuable possessions. It not only provides shelter, but expresses you and your family's unique personality, Why not let Topnotch Inc. beautifully increase the value of your house and the enjoyment of a home with a jxnver washing? Power washing, or pressure washing, is the application of highpressure water spray. This spray is a hundred times more powerful than the typical garden hose. A garden hose will only clean about 50 percent of the dirt from your house or deck — and that's only if you do a really good job, which may take you many hours. If 50 percent of the dirt is still in your wood, it will not allow the seal to penetrate all the way into the wood, giving you a false seal. Topnotch has qualified, competent technicians who bike the time to talk to their customers on site to help prevent future problems and high expenses. They inform customers on the proper care of their homes/decks. The teclmicians even give their professional opinions mid thorough explanations on the proper stain to use when staining a deck, at no additional charge. One way to keep your deck looking new is to power wash it once a year, sometimes once every two years if it is maintained properly. Power washing any wood or deck will open up all the pores and remove all the dirt. Some decks may require a remover if a hard-shell or varnish type surface has formed. If the whole deck is affected, the deck may have to be sanded, Topnotch uses only the highest quality machinery, stains and steals. The company's products are environmentally safe, which means ingredients are designed not to counteract with any method of deterioration including ultraviolet damage. They include proper preparation and application procedures — any shortcuts will only reduce the finished appearance and jeopardize the integrity of their workmanship. On houses, aluminum and vinyl siding can be greatly improved by power washing, which will remove pollution, mildew nnd fungus caused by moisture and humidity, and other signs of neglect. Annual cleaning improves paint life and removes mildew and mold spores that cause allergies and destroy surface area. Call Topnotch now and receive a lO-percent discount for mentioning this article.

DOT unveils circle redesign plan (Continued from page A-l) the roundabout. According to DOT consultant Frank Lopatosky, traffic lano.s were repositioned and tightened to help traffic How and access to certain roads and driveways were repositioned. Planned changes include a revised lane configuration at the North Avenue/East Broad Street intersection; a revised alignment

of the Monument Island; relocation of the pedestrian signal at South Avenue and Westfield Avenue; an additional traffic signal on tlie Route 28 east approach to Prospect Street; and improved signals and striping at the South Avenue/West Broad Street intersection. The Town Council will draft a resolution endorsing the plan subject to input from local citi-

zens and revisions suggested during Tuesday's meeting. The plan may be viewed by the public at the Westfield Public Library or at the Westfield Municipal Building. Questions or comments on the plan can be addressed to Town Administrator Thomas B. Shannon. Information will also be available at www.we.stfieldnj.com, the town's World Wide Website.

Such a parking plan would also decrease air pollution by reducing the need to circle the area in search of a parking space, and would provide relief for Westfield commuters who have been on the permit waiting list since 1995, "We are confident that once all information is understood, more people will be in favor (of a parking plan)," said Cronin.

Troop member Donald Eisele, also of Westneld, said he fondly remembers getting together every Friday night with the Boy Scouts to play games in a church basement. Under his guidance, both of Eisele's sons, Walter and Donald, have became Boy Scouts. "I am just amazed myself, the way this organization has hung together for years," Eisele said. "All of us are pretty much 'outside' activity-oriented. We like being outside with nature and we enjoy being together in places like that."

Marie, also a Middlesex County resident, has done volunteer work at Muhlenberg Medical Center in Plainfield and St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston. She is an active member and past president of the Garden State Chapter of the American Fence Association.

    JpJew Releases " "Driven" — It was written by Sylvester Stallone, who stars as Joe Tanto, legendary has-been of the Grand Prix circuit, a man grho "blew it" but returns to racing in mid-season. He has been lured chiefly to put extra fire behind red-hot, rising but nervous star Jimmy Bly (Kip Pardue). Bly's key rival is current champ Beau Brandenberg (Til Schweiger). Stallone has opened his ,-Rocky Balboa Golden Book of Screencraft: stark motives for j; everyone, rushes of adrenaline, bald confrontations, clear resolutions, some heartache, heroism, smiles at the end. "Driven," true to its hyped agenda, so motorized, so expertly edited, leaves viewers either frantic for speed or ready for golf carts. Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Burt Reynolds, Gina Gershon, Kip Pardue, Cristian de la Fuente, Til Schweiger, Robert Sean Leonard, Stacy Edwards, Running time: 109 minutes. Rated PG-13. 2 1/2 stars. "One Night at McCoolV — McCool's is the dive bar where Jftandy (Matt Dillon) makes a menial living as a bartender. Randy is closing up shop when a scummy guy pushes his girlfriend out of his scummy car and drives away. The girl is Jewel (Liv Tyler), •'-(te vision. Being a red-blooded, horny guy, Randy takes her home, ahd before he knows it, he has had wild sex and been implicated 1 Sn an unfortunate crime. On that same night at McCool's, she bewitches Randy's cousin Carl (Paul Reiser) and Detective •Dehling (John Goodman), the gumshoe who conies to investigate 'Randy's supposed crime. Michael Douglas co-produced this thing, •and he has a high old time playing a low-rent thug. But as the "surprisingly violent climax unfolds before him, he has the courtesy to^ look at least slightly stunned. If you stick around McCool's until closing time, you'll know exactly how he feels. 'Oast: Liv Tyler, Matt Dillon, John Goodman, Paul Reiser, Michael r -'|)ouglas. Running time: 93 minutes. Rated R, 1 1/2 stars.

    Recent Releases "Along Came a Spider" — Morgan Freeman plays Alex 'Cross, a detective and published expert on serial killers, and ^ h e n a senator's daughter is abducted, he is called in for sage "guidance. Michael Wincott, whose cheekbones are pillars of intensity, plays the cruel, cerebral abductor as if morphing into Norman "Raskolnikov" Bates. The movie becomes a police procedural, a linear stretching of pieces as Cross teams with Monica Potter, the more dewy, blondish Julia Roberts, playing a young detective. There is a quirky, rather inane tangent involving the son of the Russian ambassador, a brainy kid most alive around his computer. The story never works on any level but the glossy, manipulative surface. Caat: Morgan Freeman, Monica Potter, Michael Wincott, Michael Moriarty, Penelope Ann Miller. Running time: 102 minutes. Rated R. 2 stars. "Blow" — Ted Demme's film has Johnny Depp as George Jung, a real figure. The bright New Englander escaped to California sun, surf, chicks and — manna of the new dawn — marijuana, everyone lighting up the "60s party well into the '70s. George goes with the new flow deep into cocaine, and takes up with lethal Colombian drugmasters. The smack really smacks George, with the law, with his bad new partners, with a coked Colombian beauty (Penelope Cruz), who seizes upon him as a cute guy and a ticket to faster deliveries. The film at its best has Depp and some depth — the giddy, shallow depth of a life lived fast, hard, doped and criminally self-defeating. Cast; Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Rachel Griffiths, Paul Reubens, Ray Liotta, Max Perlich, Bobcat Goldthwait. Running time: 120 minutes. Rated R. 2 1/2 stars. "Bridget Jones' Diary" — A best-selling 1996 book about an unhappy London bachelorette becomes a movie; in this case, "unhappy" refered to the reaction of the book's UK fans when they learned Bridget would be played by Renee Zellweger, a Texan. Rest easy, skeptics: Not only does Zellweger make like Meryl Streep in the accent department, but she inhabits the role of the brooding Bridget with a flustered charm, She is, in fact, better than the movie. Not that "Bridget" is bad: The film makes for deft (if weightless) entertainment, with amusing turns by Hugh Grant and Colin Firth as romantic rivals. But some scenes do feel as though they're fresh off some romantic-comedy assembly line, commissioned to crank out Bridget widgets. Rated R. Running time: 100 minutes. 2 1/2 stars. "The Brothers" — The film centers on four lifelong buddies in Los Angeles who are trying to navigate love's battlefield. Jackson (Morris Chestnut) is a pediatrician who's afraid of love and commitment. Brian (Bill Bellamy) loves playing the field and doesn't believe men should settle for one woman. Derrick (D.L. Hughley) is the married one in the bunch. Terry (Shemar Moore) is a former playboy who's rethinking his ways. The guys bond over basketball and beer and use the court as a place to let their guard down, But when Terry announces he's getting hitched, the other three use his announcement as a jumping-off point to examine their own relationships, or, lack thereof. In this film, the men may be kings of the castle and have the most screen-time, but it's the women who wear the pants. Cast: Morris Chestnut, D.L. Hughley, Bill Bellamy, Shemar Moore, Tamala Jones, Gabrielle Union, Jenifer Lewis, Tatyana AH. Running Time: 103 minutes. Rated R. 2 stars. "The Claim" — Arriving by stagecoach are the sadly consumptive Elena (Nastassja Kinski) and her grown daughter, Hope (Sarah Polley). They reach the town of Kingdom Come in 1867. Kingdom Come's king is Mr, Dylan (Peter Mullan). He owns just about everything around, and his safe is jammed with gold bars. There is old, painful business between Elena and Dylan, which he guiltily tries to correct, though she is dying and her daughter is slow to grasp the history. The railroad is building its &ain line east, and if it doesn't come to Kingdom Come, the town finished. "The Claim" forsakes most of the usual Western pay's of big gunplay, yet it lacks Robert Altman's magical, atmoseric grip. Now we get the grinding mill of a would-be classic, jflt: Peter Mullan, Wes Bentley, NastasBJa Kinski, Milla ivovich, Sarah Polley. Running time: 114 minutes. Rated R. 2

The rest has to come from them. "If they choose too, these kids can win the county tournament," said Biunno. 'The decision has to come from their gut — it has to come from their heart. They are more than capable of winning the county tournament." The other half of the seiniflnul round belongs to the two Mountain Valley Conference rivnls. Union Catholic advanced to the semis with upsets of Linden in the first round and Weatfield Saturday. The Vikings rallied from a 2-1 sixth inning deficit when Katie Donnan doubled home two runs with two out for a 3-2 victory.

    Sophomore right bunder Suzanne Hennessey has keyed Union Catholic's upset string, tossing a four-hitter Satimluy, striking out three, wnlking six, and scoring the go-ahead run. In the 5-2 first round victory over Linden, Hennonsey tossed a two-hittor, striking out five and walking three. But second-Heeded Governor Livingston, last year's runner-up, is the prohibitive fuvorite, having shutout Union Catholic in the last four meetings. Lindsey Sheppnrd out-dueled Hennessey May 10, tossing a no-hittor, while Hennessey allowed just a single hit us G-L escaped with a 2-0 victory. Governor Livingston advanced with a 5-2 victory over Roselle Park, paced by Jen Calubrese's two-run single ami RBl's from Lauren Beasley and Kerri Moore.

    Vikings' Head Couch Jim Revel admits his teum is ploying the role of Cindorellu and it is facing a difficult challenge in G-L. But Union Catholic linn gotten the key hits in the first two rounds of the tournament, and if they can break through with u run or two early, it can iU>li iy the toll of midnight for another day. "Being realistic, we're not going to score n whole lot runs," said Revel. "We need to stay close and hope we get the key hits. That's what we were able to do against Westfield. We need to take advantage of the opiMirtunities we get." Keying the Vikinga offense will be senior first baseman Katie Donnun, junior Melinda Roaado (.390 avg.) and froBhman catcher Ashley Whittemore (.397).

    Raiders hoard conference titles ing in 21.8, and ran a 47.1 split to anchor 4x400 relay to gold. He also took second in the long jump with a 21 feet 7 inch leap. Derrion Aberdeen had yet another all around strong performance, capturing gold in the high jump (6-4) and long jump (22-0 1/2), taking second in the 110 meter hurdles (15.5) and ran on the winning 4x400 team. Mike Dixon won the 800 (1:58.4), finished fourth in the 1600 (4:34.7), and was part of the relay. Mike Franzone took third in the 110 hurdles (16.3), 400 hurdles (59.1) and high jump (5-10) and was the fourth member of the 4x400. The 4x400 quartet scored 98 of the Raiders 158 points. "We know if the meet is going to be close that we can score in everything and other teams can't," said McGriff "Cranford did well in the distance, but couldn't score in any of the sprints. Linden did well in the sprints and hurdles, but didn't score in the distance. We can score in every event." Many expected the girls meet to be much closer, but, by scoring in 14 of 15 events, the Raiders overwhelmed the field. Scotch Plains took three of the top six places in six events, and placed two in three events. "This one is much more satisfying than some of the others have been," said Head Coach Bill Klimas. "We had losttoWestfield in a dual meet and tied Cranford. Thk was really satisfying to come back and win the championship." Ruth Rohrer highlighted the meet for the Raiders, taking home gold in both the shot put (34;2 1/4) and discus (106-8) and finishing sixth in the javelin (83-6), but it was the all-around performancea from Jayme Ferraro, Jill Koacielecki, Rachel Jones, Erin Kelly, Alyssa Sams and Stephanie Heath that propelled the Raiders to the title. Ferrnro took third in the 100 (12.9) and 200 (26.7;, second in the 400 hurdles f 1;11.3), and second in the long jump (14-11).

Jones tied Koscielecki forfifthin the 200, won the 400 (1:00.6) and split 1:02.3 on the 4x400. Kelly took third in the 400 (1:01.1), second in the 800 (2:22.9), and split 1:03.6 on the 4x400.

    This meet is big for us," said Scotch Plains Head Coach Rich KECOBD-PRESS McGriff. ^We have the depth to WESTFIELD — The Scotch keep us in it, but we're going to Plains-Fanwood High boys track need to win a few events. It will be team held off a strong challenge for important for us to score points in Cranford, while the girls squad the weights and the long jump will overwhelmed the field as the be big.

The U-9 boys team outscored its opponents 11-1 in the last three games while continuing to shut down their opponents by only allowing two goals for the entire season. On May 6. the Pythons tamed the West Windsor Tornadoes by a score of 4-1. The Pythons started off slowly but began to dominate play with crisp leading passes that turned into scoring opportunities, hi the second period, Greg Stein started off the scoring by drilling a corner kick from Steven Bello into the back of the net. This was quickly followed by a goal from Donavan Garrett, who ran down a crossing pass from Chris Freeman. In the third period, Vangelis Dimopolous scored from a long pass by Gary Binkiewicz.Tb close out the scoring, Ste%'en Bello drilled one in off a deflection by the goalie niter Louis Mazzelln sent a shot townrd the goal from past midfield.

At the end of the game the entire team presented flowers to their moms for the tireless eflbrt iii bringing thorn to all the practices and games. Over the past three games all of the Python playt'i-s have begun to show signs that all the hard work they put in at practice is paying off Their understanding of the gnnu\ the crisp passes to the wings, tho crossing balls in front of the net and the team effort on defense haw led to a dominating start. Contributing to the team effort and undefeated start have been fullbacks Scott Keogh, Louis Mazzolla, imd Greg Stein; midfielders Joey D'Annunzio, Matthew O'Donnoll and Alex Km per, forwards Chris Freeman, Steven Bello, Stephen

    ^There are little-known ways to save on home mortgages BV JAMES M. WOODARO COPLEY NEWS SERVICE

    \, It's still too early to accurately assess the full impact of the recent .. „ lowering of interest rates by the Federal Reserve on the real estate •„, -market. But it is certainly boosting home sales and mortgage refi\ > ~,cancing applications. '•'tl-il- Just before the announced drop in interest, home mortgage rates ^ oh average were remaining quite stable at about 7 percent. ^.Historically, that's a very low level and continued to motivate many V Jfionnebuyers. Now ratea are even more affordable. ^ When the Fed lowers interest rates, it's a highly publicized event. j% But there are other ways to save on home mortgages that remain Hvjit unknown to many homeowners. J(f • For example, if you're one of the two million homeowners who r^ffranced their home with an FHA (Federal Housing Administration) mortgage, you may be due for a rebate of some of the FHA premium t^.when you refinance that mortgage. &- ,'„ Last January, the FHA cut the amount of its insurance premium ^,-jcharged to new borrowers of their loans. The former rate of 2.25 per"£ "sent was reduced to 1.5 percent. ,nv *•••, The guidelines issued by the FHA indicate the federal government will refund portions of recent homebuyers' insurance premiums when refinance their loan. This applies to cases where loans are refiy the loan term - within the past three years. This gives . * > • •


    some homeowners the opportunity to refinance their home loan to take advantage of today's lower rates, and at the same time enjoy a rebate of some past paid premium payments. Many current homeowners are eligible to recapture from $500 to $1,000 on past premium costs, it was estimated. For new homebuyers, the reduced FHA premium rate means somewhat lower monthly payments and easier qualification requirements. Generally, it will help families in financing a home purchase, thus boosting the potential for increasing home sales. As we progress into the 21st century, mortgage-lending firms that succeed will be those that combine knowledge and expertise with innovative technology, and deliver both "high-tech" and "high-touch" services to borrowers. That's the conclusion reached by researchers at the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, as summarized in a recent special report. Technology, business models and customer expectations are changing. The "e-commerce" model of a seller and a buyer coming together through an independent electronic intermediary is giving way to consortia commerce, the report said. This model brings sellers and their supporting businesses together to give buyere high-tech high-touch service. In other words, the borrower receives personalized service with automated support, thus maximizing benefits of an efficient process. The report concluded; "The greatest challenge facing the industry

    of mortgage banking today is to shift itself from a business model of volume and transactions to a model of best customers and deep relationships." *** The battle is intensifying between the two dominant real estate service Web sites on the Internet - Realtor.com and HomeAdvisor.com. In a recent release, HomeAdvisor.com claimed they were the primary site used by today's real estate professionals and consumers, as determined by an impartial survey. Subsequently (and predictably), Realtor.com issued a release refuting the accuracy of that claim. Here's what Steve Murray, editor of Real Trends, had to say about the claims: "Traffic volumes to the two largest residential real estate sites are important to them and to certain members of their audiences. But the greater importance to real estate brokerage firms and sales associates should be the ability of the two sites to generate qualified buyer leads. Both firms admit this is the ultimate test of a successful site. "This level of competition is healthy for the industry as it tends to bring out the best efforts in any firm engaged in this kind of intense competition. The result is better services for real estate professionals." Send inquiries to James M. Woodard, Copley News Service, P.O. Box 120190, San Diego, CA 92112-0190.

To remove the stained and damaged plank, use a circular saw running the full length of the damaged plank (finish cutting at each end with a chisel to avoid damaging adjoining planks). The depth of the blade should equal the thickness of the plank. If the plank is wide enough, cut across the ends, too. Remove the damaged plank with a hammer and chisel.

    Automotive/Classified Acura takes its time dressing up the new MDX BY JERKY GARRETT COPLEY NEWS SKRVICE

    There can be an advantage to coming late to the party. If any proof of this is needed, just check out Acura's new MDX sport-utility vehicle. By being the latest - and hopefully one of the last - to arrive in the now-crowded upscale SUV segment, Acura was first able to see what everyone else was offering. Then, their designers were able to shape their objectives accordingly. Aeura's goal? Meet or exceed the bench marks established by everything else that's already in the marketplace. How well did they do? Well, getting auto writers to agree on anything is about as difficult as teaching synchronized swimming to cats. But for some reason - actually many reasons this is one mall-terrain vehicle the critics generally rave about. Media people at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit picked the MDX aa "Truck of the Year" (Yes we know it's not really a truck. But, the writers' "Car of the Year" choice was the PT Cruiser, which by federal definition is a truck.) Most buying guides rate the MDX a Best Buy. And recently, Car and Driver magazine selected the MDX aa the winner of what it called a "Designer Sport Ute Smackdown" - a head-tohead comparo against seven competitive models (manufacturers of an additional three possible models failed to send a candidate for evaluation). The MDX was rated Best Overall in four of 11 evaluation criteria (i.e., engine, ride, fit and finish, and value), and tied or near the top in six others. In fact, the only area in which it was found to be wanting was off-road capability. And Acura plainly states it aimed to build only medium-duty off-highway

Economically, the MDX shines with three-row, seven-passenger seating, which only the Mitsubishi Monturo Limited or Mercury Mountaineer can match in this class. The value quotient of the $34,370 base-priced MDX is pumped up with such standard equipment as air conditioning, leather-trimmed power land heated) seats and a power moon roof. Even fully loaded at $39,450 (with a Touring Package and a Navigation System), the MDX is two grand less than a comparably equipped Lexus RX 300, fourthousand leas than a MercedesBenz ML320, and $BK under a BMW X5 3.0i. And the MDX is arguably more vehicle for less money longer, wider and bigger inside. In fact, with its five rear seats folded flush into the floor (which they do quite nicely), the MDX offers an unbeatable 82 cubic feet of cargo room - gobbling up such essentials as a 4-by-H sheet of plywood, a 130-inch section of The Acura MDX is rated a best buy by many. pipe and 34 cases of beer.
