Recall Fever

freeway is completed,
Coolidge has been widened
with a left turn lane.
"It was ridiculous," Com-
missioner Jacobs said of the
recall. "I'm not sure why the
public feels they have to go
around recalling people all
the time."
But residents feel the recall
was the best way to catch the
commissioners attention. "It
was a very effective tactic,"
said recall leader Sidney Kar-
don, who was against dropp-
ing the proceedings. "We
never would have had an Ad
Hoc Committee without the
recall and plans to slope cor-
ners so cars turn faster onto
the sidestreets wouldn't have
been modified. It wasn't until
we went to the county and fil-
ed a recall that the city com-
mission actually voted for the
corner cuts. Fear for their
reputations made them more
conciliatory."
In West Bloomfield, a group
of residents angered by a lack
of parks, excessive develop-
ment and the resulting traf-
fic congestion filed a recall
against four township board
members. This week,
however, the group's petition
was denied certification by
the Oakland County Elec-
tions Commission due to
unclear language.
The group, Organizations
United to Save the

Township(OUST), is expected
to appeal.
At least one local recall
petition, however, has recent-
ly been approved. Oakland
County businessman Lowell
Ruppenthal, bested by Rep.
David Gubow in last year's
election, has launched a se-
cond attempt to recall the
Huntington Woods Democrat.
Last June, Gubow voted in
favor of a $180 million state
budget increase which Rup-
penthal of Ferndale is calling
grounds for removal.
Ruppenthal was defeated by
Gubow by a 3-to-1 ratio.
He dropped his first recall
action when he decided to run
against Gubow. He now needs
a minimum of 5,981
signatures to force a recall
vote.
"A recall seems to be the on-
ly strong message people can
send to Lansing to stop these
guys from spending money
like drunken sailors," Rup-
penthal said.
But local politicians
disagree.
"A recall is an expensive
project," said Commissioner
Jacobs. "We have a
democratic system. If you
don't like someone in power,
you can throw the bum. Out on
election day. Unfortunately
there's a real distrust of local
politicians."

envoy from his own govern-
ment because few believed
that he could do anything in
Budapest.
But Wallenberg rescued
thousands, issuing
mimeographed "official"
documents and even cajoling
the nervous Nazis to allow
"his" Jews to remain in 32
safe houses he established in
Budapest.
"Why did he do it?" asked
Jacob. "Who knows? Maybe
he was trying to live up to the
family motto: "Ib be, not to be
seen: He had a moral duty to
do what was right, to stand
up to what was wrong."
Annette Lantos' campaign
on behalf of Wallenberg has
led to several Soviet denials
that Wallenberg is still alive
in a Soviet prison. The
Soviets have claimed that he
died of a heart attack in 1947,
but Soviet emigres as recent-
ly as 1981 say Wallenberg has
been sighted in the Gulag.
Rep. Lantos initiated
legislation making
Wallenberg only the second
person in history to be
granted honorary U.S. citizen-
ship. The first was Winston
Churchill.
Lantos called the HMC and

similar centers important to
the effort to never forget the
Holocaust.

R

esidents of Franklin
Village and neighbor-
ing townships are
awaiting word on the future
of 14 Mile Road between In-
kster and Franklin Roads, a
dirt-covered strip lined with
flora, fauna and pot holes.
The residents have formed
a group, the Natural Beauty
Road Committee, aimed at of-
ficially designating the road-
way a "natural beauty road"
— a distinction designed to
preserve native vegetation by
limiting the use of herbicides
and requiring a public hear-
ing before major construction
projects can be started.
While most of 14 Mile Road
is considered a major
thoroughfare, this narrow
