Familiar names running for County

By Joe Slezak

Press & Guide Newspapers

DEARBORN HEIGHTS — When voters go to the polls in the Aug. 7 primary, they’ll see two very famil- iar names vying for the Wayne County Commission 8th District seat. Only one, though, will be run- ning in the Nov. 6 general election. Incumbent Diane Webb will be running against term-limited

state Rep. Bob Constan for the Democratic nomination; the win- ner will face Republican Mark Cochran, who is unopposed, in November. The 8th District also includes Redford Township and part of Livonia. It’s one of several items city vot- ers will see in the primary. The top Republican and the top Democrat will advance in each race; in non- partisan races, twice the number

of candidates than available seats will advance. Voters can only cast ballots for Democrats or Republicans in the primary. Ballots that have votes for both parties will not be counted. The others ballot items are:

Federal government

•Senate: Incumbent Debbie Stabenow is the lone Democrat; she’s being challenged for the

six-year seat by Republicans Clark Durant, Gary Glenn, Randy Hekman and Pete Hoekstra. •House of Representatives:

Districts were redrawn based on the 2010 census, though the city still will be served by two districts. Almost all of the city was placed in the 13th District, where long- time incumbent John Conyers of Detroit, who had not been repre-

Dearborn man’s flame-throwing car at Cruise event

By David Chapman

DEARBORN HEIGHTS/ DEARBORN — Sh Boom:

about anyone who has ever cruised Telegraph, or any other car event in Southeast Michigan, knows this name. In case you are one of the few who don’t, Sh, Boom is a customized blue- flamed, white 1951 Ford

with two larger-than-life flame throwers owned by Dearborn resident Bob Fryz. Fryz has owned Sh Boom for 15 years and has redone the car more than once, including changes to the body, paint and the addition to bigger and better flame throwers. After the large rear- mounted flame throwers, the next thing that draws

stares is the car’s front hub caps. Fryz said the inspira- tion for the hub caps came from the movies “Grease” and “Ben Hur.” The hub caps are actu- ally made from many dif- ferent hub caps including

a 1957 Oldsmobile, a semi,

a Harley, and with the

points being rare original Shannon Cones. “I like to make cool things, said Fryz.

Two Crestwood students leading school in green era

By Emily Morman

Press & Guide Newspapers

DEARBORN HEIGHTS — Crestwood High School has gone green, and it’s due in large part to the effort of two of its stu- dents. Ahmad Awada, a junior, and Aymen Maktari, a senior, are in charge of oversee- ing the planting and upkeep of one of the school’s courtyards. What once contained bushes and weeds too tall to walk through is now home to a solar-powered pond and a multi-purpose weather station, among other things. “My sophomore year two years ago, we created the pond,” Maktari said. “We want- ed to make the school more green.” Almost everything planted in the courtyard is native to Michigan, Awada explained, and there’s a beehive to attract honeybees. Other attractions include a patriotic-themed flower bed, blueberry bushes and a composter to recycle plant waste.

The work in the courtyard itself, though, has been ongoing since long before Awada and Maktari came to Crestwood. About a decade ago, woodshop students built a gaze-

Sometimes that means you have to think out of the box.” Another place cool use of hub caps can be found is on the headlight rings of the cars, which were made from the hub caps of a 1959

Chrysler Imperial.

The car’s front bumper was adapted from a 1955 Cadillac. To make the bum- per fit the car, it had to be cut in half, shortened, and

then welded back together. A close eye will notice the changes were made to make to the hood so it and the bumper splash pan line up perfectly. Sh Boom is not Fryz’s first car. He has been involved with cars since the 1960s, when he used to drag race at Detroit Dragway and cruise Telegraph.
