FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1988

Cohan has asked the follow-
ing Community Council ex-
ecutive committee members
to serve as a search commit-
tee to recommend a successor:
Paul D. Borman, chairman;
Robert Goren, Rabbi Richard
Hertz, Zina Kramer, David
Lebenbom, Judge John
Shepherd and Jeannie
Weiner. The first meeting of
the committee is scheduled
for next week and no
timetable has been establish-
ed for the selection process.
Cohan said the full ex-
ecutive committee must also
discuss the interim operation
of the Council after March 1.

"My first time here I work-
ed through the (1967) riots
and then I came back at the
time of the 1973 (Yom Kippur)
War." Looking back, Kushner
believes the best part of his
job is working with the
Detroit Jewish community.
"Without any shmaltz," he
said, "this is a fabulous com-
munity with committed peo-
ple willing to work with you
. . . Sure, there are times you
wish they would go a different
way, but they know what they
are doing?'
He added that he had
-always been lucky to have a
good staff and very good lay
support at the Community
Council.
Council President Leon
Cohan said Kushner will not
be easily replaced. "He has

Southfield and Farmington
Hills to be charged at long
distance rates.
Almost half of the residents
of West Bloomfield are in the
Pontiac or Walled Lake
telephone exchanges. Every
time they call the rest of West
Bloomfield, it's a long
distance call — making it
quite expensive to reach out
and touch someone.
For years, Michigan Bell
has heard complaints and
received petitions, but
nothing has been done.
"Michigan Bell has gouged
this area long enough," said
Monast, who, together with
her husband, moved to West
Bloomfield from Southfield
last June and hasn't had a
phone bill under $100 since.
The situation is the result
of many changes in the
makeup of Oakland County
since the telephone boun-
daries were set up prior to
World War II. At that time,
the eastern portion of West
Bloomfield was considered
the outskirts of Pontiac and
excluded from the Mayfair
exchange.
Last month, more than 100
residents, including State
Representative David
Honigman (R-West Bloom-
field), gathered at the West
Bloomfield fire station, hop-
ing to find a method to reduce
their monthly phone bills.
The situation will now be
presented to the Public Ser-
vice Commission in Lansing
sometime in the next two
months.
But Monast isn't stopping
there. She plans to continue
talking to local media and
sending out petitions. For the
next two Sundays she is
holding a five-hour vigil at
the Crosswinds Mall (former-

ly Pine Lake Mall) from noon
to 5 p.m., gathering
signatures and answering
questions.
"People are afraid to buck
the phone company," she said.
"But I'm working every day
to try and change this."

to be replaced. Cleaning
crews have been working
furiously all week.
During and since the blaze,
residents have not had an
easy time. Sections of the
building were roped off and
many were unable to enter
their apartments for several
days, forcing them to stay
with friends and relatives.
There is also a great deal of
question as to why the smoke
alarms were turned off and
the doors remained locked.
"What's the purpose of hav-
ing doors and alarms if they
don't use them?" asked Annie
Ginis, whose mother,
Josephine Leib, lives on the
first floor.
Despite anger and frustra-
tion, throughout the ordeal
the elderly Lincoln Tower
residents have remained
calm. "Many of the people
here are Holocaust survivors,
so this is a piece of cake," said
Eve Lieberman, who was
evacuated from her fourth
floor apartment. "There was
no hysteria. Everybody
handled it with equanimity."
The manager did not com-
ment on the building viola-
tions or the work of the fire
fighters, saying only the
clean-up was going well and
should be completed by the
end of the week.
