FIRE CALLS City of Wakefield Wakefield Volunteer Fire Department was paged to a barn fire at 401 Brotherton, behind the bank, Saturday about 11:28 a.m. The department arrived at the scene within minutes and cleared the scene in a half hour. There was no electrical hook-up and the south wall was gone, according to the Gogebic County Sheriffs Department. The barn's owners live in Minnesota. Cause of the fire has not been determined and is being investigated. DETROIT (AP) — Gov. John Engler and Democratic challenger Geoffrey Fieger say their religious beliefs color their views about the state's role in people's lives. Engler's Catholic faith was deepened when hjs father died in 1992 and his triplet daughters were born in 1994, he told the Detroit Free Press for an article published Monday. As a child in Beal City, he was an altar boy and attended a parochial elementary school. ':, "Government cannot cure all of society's ills. People have a responsibility to develop their own moral codes and act upon them," he said. \ Fieger, who has sparred with some religious leaders in his defense of Dr. Jack Kevorkian and assisted suicide since 1990, grew up as a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The church's freewheeling theology receives some criticism, but its roots go back to the 16th-Cen- tury Protestant Reformation and it claims such members as Daniel Webster, Susan B. Anthony and former Gov. James Blanchard. The Aug. 29 issue of World Magazine, a national publication for evangelical Christians, called Fieger's view of religion "full-bore atheism." The Rev. Loyce Lester, pastor of Detroit's Original New Grace Baptist church, told the newspa- per'that's just not true. "As a matter of fact, he has a very solid biblical faith. ... I've heard him talk about civil rights, which was part of his family life. His father was riding buses down in Arkansas and Mississippi in the civil rights movement." Fieger criticizes, some of Engler's welfare policies, saying they don't show concern for peo- pie. "I do try to apply these real religious teachings; compassion toward people in need, defending the poor, obtaining justice for the oppressed. "Those are traditional teachings that all religions share and they should be applied in political circles," he said. Engler's welfare changes have sparked criticism from religious leaders. In his first term, he cut • off general assistant to about 82,000 recipients and began closing mental health facilities. "I still question his concern for the whole community," said Bishop R. Stewart Wood, head of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. Detroit Cardinal Adam Maida, who opposes assisted suicide, said he has differed with Engler over cuts for social services. Some Baptist pastors have a lingering image of Engler's social cuts as "mean spiritedness," said the Rev. Edgar Vann Jr., president of the Council of Baptist Pastors of Detroit and Vicinity. Engler and Fieger are scheduled to meet with the group later this month. In the emotionally charged debate over assisted suicide, some religious leaders have called the practice "murder." Fieger at times has called some of those critics "religious nuts" and told them to "keep their religious noses out of secular business." Fieger's defense over maintaining the separateness of church and state is • appropriate, said Martin Marty of Chicago, one of the nation's foremost historians of religions. "If Mr. Fieger talked about these things in a different way —with a little more civility — he could teach us something about America," Marty told the newspaper.
