2B DETROIT FREE PRESSMONDAY, JULY 28, 1997 CONGRESSIONAL ROLL CALL Readers' donations exceed expectations and can hit a high C-sharp, won a camp scholarship through IBM. Although she is learning the classics, her goal is to become a jazzpop singer like her idol, Sade. "I do not have perfect pitch," Hembrick said. "I have to listen more and I've got to work on sight-reading." One of the wonderful things about Interlochen is that it fosters striving for excellence without the competitiveness sometimes found in other music programs, Hembrick said. "I'm the only black girl in my cabin," Hembrick said. "I didn't know how they were going to welcome me, but we get along just like sisters. My best friend here, Lindsey, she's just so nice and down-to-earth. We're just having so much fun." program. Through the end of June, nearly $5,300 has been raised specifically for Interlochen. That is allowing the camp to buy reeds for oboes and bassoons, easels, leotards, folding chairs, slide projectors, movie screens and badminton racquets. "It means a great deal to us," said Interlochen camp director Ed Downing. "What it really says is that people identify with the needs of kids and that's a warm feeling for us." "It's wonderful because it's growing." Hembrick, a senior at Detroit's Mackenzie High School, said she had never heard of Interlochen until Mackenzie's choral director, Sheila Sipes, suggested she apply for a scholarship. Hembrick, who sings first soprano Dreams, frnm Page IB more children than expected. Skillman will match donations sent to the fund until Sept 1. "Time after time, whether it's for storm relief efforts by the Red Cross or helping disadvantaged children in the summer, Free Press readers come through," said Publisher Heath Meriwether. "They represent a generosity that always encourages me about our efforts to make this a better place to live." Last year, the Summer Dreams campaign raised $4,240 for equipment such as instruments and full-length mirrors for dance rehearsals at Interlochen. This year donations are up for Interlochen, like nearly every Summer Dreams highlighted gress must keep with agriculture. The votes came during debate on the $49-billion agriculture spending bill for fiscal 1998, which the House passed 392-32 on Thursday flight. All members of the Michigan delegation voted for the bill except John Conyers a Democrat, who voted against it It moves next to a conference committee to work out differences with the Senate. The House rejected, 209-216, an amendment to save $34 million by ending crop insurance subsidies for tobacco growers. The Michigan delegation was split with the following lawmakers voting to end the subsidy: Republicans Vern Ehlers, Peter Hoekstra and Fred Upton, and Democrats Conyers, Dale Kildee, Sander Levin, Lynn Rivers, Debbie Sta-benow and Bart Stupak. Dingell did not vote. The rest voting against ending the subsidy. The Senate defeated a similar measure Wednesday but Sens. Carl Levin, a Democrat, and Spencer Abraham, a Republican, both supported it Each Monday while Congress is in session, the Free Press prints how Michigan's delegation voted on major recent issues. Associated Press WASHINGTON U.S. House lawmakers have approved a bill to provide more than $42 billion for transportation programs in fiscal year 1998 that includes more road funds for Michigan and all other states. The House voted 424-5 on Wednesday to approve the bill that would give Michigan a $106-million boost in federal road funding next year. The 16-member Michigan delegation voted for it except for Rep. John Dingell, who voted against it. This year's federal road funding for Michigan was $512 million; next year's funding under the bill would be $618 million.

LOCAL DATELINE Royal Oak Zookeepers hope for panda cubs A studhy new guy has moved into the Detroit Zoo, and zookeepers are hoping for a brood of red panda cubs within a year, Juno, a year-old male, set up housekeeping last week with July, a female. Red pandas are an endangered species; Juno and July are two of only 200 in the United States. The pandas are native to the Himalayas, where deforestation has led to the demise of many. Juno came to Detroit by way of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, July arrived in the Motor City in November. The pandas are about feet long, weigh 10 pounds and have reddish fur, white faces that look like masks and striped tails. By Louise Taylor Harrison Township Board to take on boat storage Tonight the Harrison Township Board is expected to revive an old issue: storing boats in front lawns. For four years, the township has backed off an ordinance passed mostly for aesthetics which prohibits storage of boats in front yards. But Supervisor John Hart said last week the board should either stand by the ordinance or scrap it instead of imposing a moratorium each year. The board meets at 7:30 p.m. at Rosso Memorial Hall, 38255 L'Anse Creuse. By Marc Selinger Southfield Fieger sues firm after defection Attorney Geoffrey Fieger is suing an insurance adjuster who he says lured away 70 clients Fieger was representing in a multimillion-dollar property damage suit Fieger's firm was representing about 80 home owners in Westland whose basements backed up with sewage following a heavy rainstorm on Feb. 20, 1997. In a complaint naming the City of Westland, builders and engineers, the home owners alleged their homes were defective. The defendants pooled more than $6 million in June to help settle the claims, Fieger said in his suit Before long, though, Fieger's clients were notifying him they had chosen to deal directly with the claims adjuster, Gab Robbins Inc. of Bingham Farms, and that they no longer needed his services. Some of the former clients said Robbins had urged that they discontinue their association with Fieger. In a suit filed Friday in Oakland County Circuit Court Fieger said his firm suffered "economic injury loss of esteem and standing in the community." He wants more than $10,000 in damages. Detroit Reward offered for fire details Tipping off federal investigators to an arsonist who tossed a Molotov cocktail into a Detroit church last year could net someone $5,000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms announced Friday. The ATF is offering the reward for information leading to the arrest indictment and conviction of the person responsible for the Aug. 27, 1996, firebombing of the Greater Mt Zion Baptist Church at 1960 Meade, said agent Vera Fedorak, Detroit ATF spokesperson. Conviction on a federal arson charge could result in up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Anyone with information may call the ATF Arson Hotline at 1-888-283- 3473anytime. Harold N. unney.
