Kia Optima SX Turbo is a Forceful Midsize Sedan



Kia Optima Turbo

Take a spin in the Kia Optima Turbo, and your brain will reset all preconceptions that this Korean carmaker makes throwaway cars. That is, if you aren't already a Kia convert.  Shut up and hold on. The SX Turbo is a forceful midsize sedan. The suspension is a little hard, but the car is a dramatic statement in performance, technology and styling.

Sold in three trim levels -- and a hybrid -- pricing starts at $19,690 for the base LX with a 192-hp, gasoline-direct injection, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission. (Outside of California and Eastern states with similar air-quality standards, horsepower is 200.) Add $1,500 for the six-speed Sportmatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings are 24/35 mpg for manual and 24/34 mpg for automatic.

Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Successful Fashion Show Designed To Help Charities


The third annual Paramus Sunrise Fashion Show got off to a bountiful start. Held at the IBEW Local 164 Training School, businesses and people gave it great support. Some came to see New Jersey StateAssemblywoman Connie Wagner and Mayor Rich LaBarbiera with his lovely wife, Maryann, model on the runway, some came to see IBEW Union President John DeBouter hit a chip shot, some came to partake of the Tricky Tray and good food prepared at the IBEW, some came to taste the desserts from The Melting Pot in Westwood and some came to taste the new drink, Vodgria. Some came for the enjoyment of a delightful evening of entertainment and food and to feel wonderful about the fact that the monies they spent were going to charities.

Ashlin Twardzk set the mood with renditions of a patriotic song and other renditions that pleased the attendees. Her rich voice did justice to the music! What is more incredible is that Ashlin is only 15 years old, a student at The Academy of the Holy Angels where she is a member of their Vocal Ensemble, an honor roll student.

Q: Our sun porch has really tall windows, almost floor-to-ceiling. We love the light during the day, but it's like living in a fishbowl at night. I don't know how to cover the windows to have it sunny by day and private at night. Can you help?

A: Any number of different window treatments would give you the dual control you're looking for on your sun porch. Your choice really depends on your decorating style.

If, for example, you're into the country look, cafe curtains could be the perfect answer. Cafes are short enough to protect your privacy, but it still leaves the top of the windows open to the sun and light.

Q: We're renovating an old cabin on the shore and doing it on the proverbial shoestring. The house is sound, but, well, calling it "minimalist" is putting it mildly.
About the only jazzy thing we can afford -- before this summer, at least -- is paint.
So, here's our burning question: What's a great color for a house that's used in the hot weather? There's one large all-in-one room (kitchen/living/dining) with three bedrooms and a bath opening off it. -- Barbara
