that father in your life how much you appreciate them. Some of us can only give a father a phone call. Others can spend a whole day with their father showing gratitude.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals will also be going on that same day. At 6pm The Miami Heat will face the San Antonio Spurs in a well fought game in San Antonio. No matter what you end up doing, just remember the purpose and reason is to honor fathers everywhere and show them how much we appreciate everything they do for all of us.

Weather 101

By: “Doppler” Dave Speelman

Hot Start to June! What a way to start off our hottest month of the year! We started off the first week in June with temperatures well above the average. The hottest day of the week was 109 degrees last Tuesday, which was a record setting day. We had five days that week with record setting temperatures. This was all courtesy of a strong ridge of high pressure that camped out right on top of us. High pressure

compresses the air (evaporates most of the water vapor) and heats it up. Generally when we are under a ridge like this, we have plenty of sun and lighter winds. As you look at the graphic below, you’ll notice the triple digits taper off after June once we begin to add the monsoon moisture to the atmosphere.

What Not to Buy Your Dad for Father's Day Think outside the traditional Father's Day gift box this year. Instead of giving your dad another tie or another polo shirt, try giving him the gift of style — tweaking those old fashion favorites and outfitting him with something a little trendy that he might not buy for himself. Here are a few ideas to get you started on what NOT to buy and what to buy instead:

—Ditch the ties. I know there are some stylin' ties out there, but unless your dad wears one to work every day and has specifically asked for new neckwear, he probably would rather choose his own. Pick out another accessory — a pair of aviator-style sunglasses with colorful lenses, a hand-stitched belt with an unusual buckle, a pair of antique cuff links, or a luxe leather iPad cover.

—Say "no" to the polo. Another overdone Father's Day gift. Yes, it may be a staple for many guys, but it's been around for so long that it might be nice to present your dad with another option — a striped pocket T-shirt instead. It's a much more modern alternative and will instantly give him a more youthful look. And if he really loves those polos, then go for the bold color factor, even if it's a pastel. Real men do wear pink.

—Let go of logos. This can be tricky. If your dad attends every game of his college alma mater, then you might consider outfitting him with a new jacket in the school's colors. But steer clear of all the gimmicky logos and graphic prints that go along with cheering on the team, because you just might see this one coming and going on weekdays and not just game days. That new hockey jersey may come to haunt you. Ditto for baseball caps.

—Trade in the tropics. The Hawaiian print shirts have had their heyday in the '50s and '90s. They continue to show up in all their blooming glory, but they should not be on your shopping list. Time to take a vacation from the floral shirts. Instead, buy your dad a short-sleeved cotton shirt in a graphic check print. Blue is always a safe choice for the more traditional guy; coral or purple is a more trendy choice. —Stick to fit, not flare. The silhouette of contemporary menswear is all about a more fitted look. The pro-

portions have changed in the past few years. Slim and trim suits are in; bigshouldered power suits are out. However, if your dad is a larger man, he may have some trouble finding clothes that fit but are still comfortable. This dilemma may just be the inspiration you need to take him shopping and let a savvy salesperson help steer you both in the right direction. It's amazing what an expert can do to give your dad a boost in the makeover department.

—Ditto for denim. Jeans are a mainstay in most men's and women's wardrobes, so if your dad has been a khaki fan for years or he's stuck with the pleats, he may need some help in updating this classic, too. Many men feel overwhelmed by all the style choices available in the stores and online. It may take a few spins in the dressing room to get it right. When you find a pair that fits, buy it in multiples. I got my 85-year-old dad into black flatfront jeans from L.L. Bean, and he now rarely wears anything else. What did I tell you? At least I know what I will be getting him for Father's Day this year!

If you speak English in your home, your kids are not likely to come out speaking Italian. Kids learn everything through observation and imitation. And they don't miss a thing. Kids are shaped at the very beginning of life by the way their parents live. They are ever-attentive witnesses of grown-up behaviors. They take their cues from what they see and hear. Want your kids to grow up with healthy attitudes about money? Start living the way you want them to become. Let your kids regularly catch you in the act of living financially responsible lives and you'll be on your way to raising financially responsible kids. You really cannot start too early modeling healthy money attitudes for your kids. Here are 20 ways you can start right now to raise financially responsible kids even if yours are still toddlers, excerpted from my book, "Raising Financially Responsible Kids," which remains my most favorite of all because it's about my kids and the plan we created. • Let them observe that you have money and you take good care of it. • Let them see you use money as an ordinary and normal part of life.

—Forget the socks. While the sockless look may not be gaining any ground at the local law firm, this trend is definitely on the upswing for more casual occasions. So instead of buying socks, learn his shoe size and give him a pair of new sport sneakers or loafers. There are plenty of lightweight styles that feature new technology to choose from, and summer is the perfect time to try out a sockless approach to dressing. This gift may also encourage your dad NOT to wear socks with his sandals!

• Let them see you put money in the church offering. Make sure they catch you being generous with others and sharing what you have. • Tell your kids stories about the ways you are practicing frugality in order to save money. • Allow them to see you deposit money in the bank. • Let them see the way you pay for groceries with cash. • Teach them that money is important in our lives because we can exchange it for things we need and want.

The Kids Are Watching... Continued from page 6 • Talk about money as casually as you talk about other things like sports and laundry. • Use coins to teach your preschoolers to count. It's effective and acknowledges their curiosity about money.

Don't Call Him a Klutz! And More Rules of the Parenting Game "Hit the ball! You're not concentrating!" "Your baby sister could have caught that!"

• Talk about the different shapes and colors of items in the store. It gives little ones something to do instead of wanting everything they see.

"Run! Faster! You're not even trying!"

• While a passenger in the grocery cart, allow your little one to hold the coupons or the list. Talk about finding the best value.

Lots of parents don't know how to behave when they watch their kid playing. They're loud, and obnoxious, and super-critical. So how should they act? Differently.

• Say, "We don't chose to spend our money that way" more often than you say "We can't afford it." • Remember preschoolers are listening and learning from everything they see you do and hear you say. • Use coins to teach the different denominations. Three and four-year-olds can learn to put all the pennies into one cup the nickels into another and so on. • Visit the library and park with your preschooler more often than the market or mall. • Give rewards of hugs and praise-not money. Creating the expectation of cash payment at every turn is a habit you'll regret in adolescence. • Monitor television time and opt for non-commercial viewing and videotapes when possible. • Let preschoolers participate in household chores to enjoy the security of belonging — not to get paid. • Intervene between advertisers and your kids. Preschoolers can't always tell when the television show ends and the ad begins. • Make sure your children grow up with a strong sense of gratitude, thankful for all they have.

Here are some vital parenting rules to help you lead your child into a life of active play, so they don't give up and drop out of sports before they've had a chance to find the one they love, even if it's football:

BE POSITIVE. If you can't say something nice during a game, say nothing at all. Or stay home. You're the parent, not the coach. Your job is to be supportive, encouraging, unconditionally loving. Keep your comments positive. Let go of the negative. Give your kid credit for showing up, for working well with his teammates, for being a good sport. These qualities are a thousand times more important to your kid's future well-being than the final score of the game.

FOCUS ON FUN. If you want your kids to relax and enjoy sports, you have to relax and enjoy watching. If you get upset and unruly, so will they. All the experts agree: The quickest way to kill a kid's interest in sports is to overemphasize winning. It's a game! The real victory is for your kid to feel comfortable and happy chasing a tennis ball or swinging a bat. Kids who are made to feel unworthy on the ballfield take that insecurity into

adulthood. It's not pretty.

PRIZE. Research shows

PRAISE THE EFFORT IN SPITE OF THE OUTCOME. If your kid's team

wins the game, bravo. But if your youngster is on the losing side, you need to offer empathy, not criticism. Recognize the loss, but don't dwell on it. The teachable moment is all about resiliency. If you can develop that nothing-candefeat-me spirit as a kid, being an adult gets a whole lot easier. Instead of dwelling on the loss, shift your kid's focus to something positive: What was the best part of the game? Did you learn something? Make a new friend?

BE AVAILABLE. Your behavior on game day is important, but a winning attitude at home counts, too. Do less talking and a lot more listening to your kid's experience. Don't judge. And don't box them in to playing soccer just because you grew up with posters of Pele in your room. Go join an adult soccer league and let your kids find what they love. Irish Dancing? Trampoline? Cave diving? (God forbid.)

STAY ABOVE THE FRAY. Sometimes fights erupt at a game, in the stands, on the field. Stay out of it. Don't abuse the refs or boo the other team. Stay cool, take a few calming breaths, and eat some peanuts till the argument blows over. It's also unwise to be critical of a coach in front of your kids. It you've got a question or complaint, take it up privately.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE

A much bigger deal is having your daughter or son feel good after the game. Fake praise won't do it. Kids are smarter than that. If you parent with positive feedback and compassion when it comes to sports, your kid is much more likely to grow up enjoying an active, healthy lifestyle.

And that's the real goal, isn't it? I have one more goal to mention. There is a life-changing sports and leadership summer camp for girls in Chicago run by Girls in the Game (www.girlsinthegame.org), an award winning nonprofit. I was founding chair, still on the board, and remain a shameless cheerleader. In the next few weeks, we hope to raise enough money to take 150 girls off the mean streets of that great city and into our stellar, safe summer camp. The girls play a great mix of sports, eat real food, develop as leaders, and learn how to handle any violence their lives. That's how you help change the world — one kid at a time.

Saturn, the planet that rules paternal energy, is retrograde on this fine Father's Day, sending many of us down memory lane. The moon spends the morning in Capricorn, which Saturn rules, bringing the strongest fatherly focus of the day in the early hours before sailing like an expertly struck golf ball into the realm of Aquarius ready for games and socializing. Saturday opens the door to a new season, so get outside and enjoy. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just as expert investors recommend a diverse stock portfolio, you will become emotionally richer for placing your attention on a variety of interests — at least three. Becoming too embroiled in one venture is an easily avoided danger this week. If you feel yourself obsessing, quickly change your mental channel. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This week you'll have the chance to spend time on that thing you do that increases your sense of peace, pleasure and beauty. This activity is misunderstood by overly practical types who are so focused on profit that they do not understand efforts made for other reasons. Maybe you can educate them! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For now, it's best to disregard your competition. Also disregard the limits of your ability. If you're aiming for a result that's within your skill level, know that it is too low to excite and motivate you. Ignore what you know about what you can do while you pay attention to what you would like to see yourself do. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A lack of awareness can be ruinous to relationships, especially new relationships that do not have the benefit of a solid foundation. It's one more reason to remember people's names. Staying socially present and keen will pay off for you. You'll build rapport with someone who will enrich your future experience. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may feel like you're playing a game of emotional chicken. You take a risk and reveal a part of who you are, and the other person does the same. How much to reveal? This is the milliondollar question, and with your discretion, taste and vulnerability, you'll strike just the right balance in this regard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's always easier to present to an audience you know. If you're in touch with their needs, wants, values, interests and situational pressures, you'll let that information guide you. Unfortunately, it's not always possible to know your audience, and when that's the case, all you can do is try your best to put yourself in their place. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The Zen

master insists that there is no progress. Faith in progress is futile. The midweek brings the chance to take a break from accounting for the accumulation and direction of your efforts to feel the fullness of a moment. Being present is being happy. Those who help you stay in the moment will be your favorite people. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This week shows you in an assertive mood. You'll feel emboldened to ask others for the change in their behavior you'd like to see. You feel fine with saying "no," and you won't be the least bit afraid to have a different opinion. You know yourself and stand in who you are. People will want to work and play with you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll have a heightened awareness of time and the way you manage and join with it. In the planning stages of things, it's necessary to send your mind ahead of you. However, once you've nailed a plan, the best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to become as fully present in the "now" moment as possible. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Influencing others isn't hard for you, and you'll have good reason to do so this week. The bottom line is: The better you know your subject the better you will present it. Once you get firm on the facts and figures, a bit of showmanship is all that's needed to make people sit up and pay attention. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone wants to be good at the task at hand, but not everyone is willing to make the sacrifices necessary to be great at it — especially if the task is low on the glamour quotient. That's what sets you apart this week. Each task you tackle, regardless of how small, you approach with the intention of excellence. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your projects go 95 percent right this week. As for the other 5 percent, you never blame others; you blame yourself. You do this not because it's your fault, but because you're the only one you have control over. You'll learn more by holding yourself responsible, and you're definitely in the receptive state of mind to learn all that you can. THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: The world will recognize your star quality this year, especially in July and September when you'll be put in the spotlight for something you do beautifully. Unite your team and go forward with an August venture. A surprise will liven things up in October. You'll have to juggle the logistics, but the new way will be better. New powers of discipline will help you reach a fitness goal before the winter holidays, and you'll show up strong with friends and family as you usher in 2015.

DOG PADDLE By Kim Campbell Thornton Universal Uclick

I

t’s summertime, and that

means it’s time to get in the water. And what water-loving dog owner doesn’t throw tennis balls for Jake to fetch from the pool, take him to the beach or have him as first mate while power-boating, sailing, kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding? Those are all great ways to spend time with your dog, but it’s important to ensure

that he’s “waterproof.” People often assume that dogs know instinctively how to swim, but that’s not the case. Teaching your dog to swim is an important part of his education, especially if you have a pool, hot tub or pond on your property or spend lots of time at the shore. • Summer is the best time to introduce your dog to the joys of playing in water. Even dogs such as Labs or Chesapeake Bay retrievers may balk if their first experience in the wet stuff is a cold one. • If possible, take your dog to an area where he can get his paws wet gradually, such as a lake or an ocean

11 tips to help your dog get in the swim this summer

beach that doesn’t have big surf. • Never throw your dog in the water. That’s a good way to teach him to hate swimming. • If you’re introducing a puppy to water, it helps if you have an older dog who can show him the ropes. Pups will usually follow older dogs and copy what they do. • As your dog gets more used to being in the water, up the fun level by throwing a bumper or floating ball into shallow water for him to fetch. • As your dog goes deeper, support his body until Always be sure your dog has a way to get out of the pool and knows how to use it.

he starts swimming on his own. Encourage him to swim to you. • No easy access to a lake or ocean? A child’s wading pool is an equally good start. Let your dog splash around in it to get the idea that playing in water is fun. When he encounters the real thing, he’ll love it. • Even the most water-loving dog can tire or panic for some reason. Always be sure your dog knows how to get out of the pool. Take him into the pool and show him how to find the stairs and climb out.

Let him get in the pool and see if he can get out on his own. Practice this frequently until you’re sure he’s prepared. • If you have a boat, the same rules apply. Put your dog in the water and then help him get back into the boat. Some dogs learn to use the boat ladder to scramble back on board. More important, keep a safety harness or canine life vest on him anytime he’s on board, whether you’re in a canoe or on a yacht. Choose one with a loop on the top so you can

grasp it by hand or with a boat hook to haul him back in. It should fit snugly without restricting your dog’s movement. The best choice is one with adjustable straps and quick-release buckles. • Consider purchasing a product such as a Skamper-Ramp, which can be used in pools and on boats. The ramp is easily visible because it’s white and it angles down, breaking the surface of the water and placing it at pet’s-eye level. • Use a pool fence or other barrier to keep old or blind pets away from water. If they fall in the pool, they won’t be able to get out. Other dogs that risk drowning if they fall in the water are those with big heads or short legs, such as bulldogs, pugs, Boston terriers, dachshunds and basset hounds. Now, get out there and enjoy the dog days of summer.

DJ Spotlight | Bart B More

Bart first gained exposure as a promising newcomer to the Dutch scene. Combining his love for beat-driven, looped techno music with big room house and electro, he has been crafting a refreshingly new cross-over sound. After his first few years of spinning in Holland, he unleashed “So It Goes” and a remix of Sandy Rivera’s “Freak,” both of which gained extensive international support while being crowned Pete Tong’s Essential New Tunes.

heat-generating piece of debris. Earnhardt then motored away to his second win of 2014, the other coming in the seasonopening Daytona 500. Sunday’s triumph gave him multiple wins on the season for the first time since 2004, and it was his 21st career Sprint Cup victory. His success comes in a season in which his crew chief, Steve Letarte, is making his final trip around the circuit

before moving to a TV commentator role with NBC, which joins the NASCAR broadcast rotation next year. Earnhardt said in his winner’s interview that it’s his relationship — at the tracks and away from them — with Letarte, car chief Jason Burdette and others on his crew that make his success this year so meaningful. “We do a lot of nor-

mal things together, and there’s a real appreciation for each other individually as people,” he said. “We’re real fortunate because there’s not a guy in that group that’s hard to be around. We’re all easygoing, and everybody really gets along.” He said the relationships were strong before the performance turned around, and it meant a lot to him that the crew embraced him immediately after working with the immensely talented Jeff Gordon. “Jeff and that team split up, and we all knew what kind of talent he is,” Earnhardt said. “So the way they wrapped their arm around me and put me under their wing and made me feel comfortable and made me confident and made me feel worthy of the opportunity to work with them was great. “They’ve been just genuine, genuine people …

they’re real. Their feelings and relationships are real. Winning races is great, but it’s nothing unless you enjoy who you’re doing it with, and when you can do something great and it’s with people you enjoy being around, man — it really adds to it, so this is why it’s so special right now.” Earnhardt admitted that his latest win came at Keselowski’s expense, but he also

Alan Marler/HHP for Chevy Racing

After several consecutive seasons of failing to live up to the on-track expectations that come with being NASCAR’s most popular driver, life is good for Dale Earnhardt Jr. On Sunday at Pocono Raceway, Earnhardt seized the lead with five laps remaining when Brad Keselowski — who had the fastest car for most of the race — slowed in a failed attempt to rid his grille of a

pointed out that Letarte’s strategy and other factors put him in second place, where he could pounce if Keselowski stumbled. And that represented an improvement over recent seasons. “I think it’s the difference between running fourth at the end of this race and running second,” Earnhardt said. “It’s a very small thing, but in years past when it was someone else seizing that opportunity from Brad and we were running third or fourth watching it happen, whereas we’ve improved our game a little bit and we’re getting a little faster and the [Hendrick Motorsports] company has gotten better. “The company is really moving along great right now.” Indeed, it was Hendrick’s fourth straight win at Pocono, as Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne were the track’s three winners before Earnhardt. And it was Hendrick’s fifth win in 14 races this season.CONT/NEXT PAGE

Dale Earnhardt Jr.... Rookie Kyle Larson’s first trip to Pocono proves fruitful

Pocono Raceway was a big test for Sprint Cup rookie Kyle Larson, as he’d never raced there in any kind of car. But he nearly aced that exam, winning Saturday’s ARCA race in a rout and finishing fifth in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race. He said he Kyle Larson won the ARCA adapted to the race on Saturday and finTricky Triangle, ished fifth in the Sprint Cup where drivers race on Sunday at Pocono routinely shift Raceway. gears at speed — something that does not occur elsewhere on the circuit, other than at road courses. “To be honest with you, I did miss a couple shifts,” he said. “Just twice, which is a lot better than probably it would have been if I didn’t practice shifting a whole lot.” He said his missed shifts came in the heat of battle, “when I was pretty excited.” Larson remains 10th in the points standings and is on pace to secure a berth in the Chase, even without winning a race.

Continued from page 24 Keselowski’s Team Penske is also on a roll, which made the late-race developments at Pocono even more disappointing for him. Although he lost the lead trying to remove the paper from his grille by running up behind the lapped car of Danica Patrick and thereby using the air from her car to dislodge the paper, his overheated engine wound up running to the finish anyway. “It was definitely a mistake, because the engine made it, but it probably shouldn’t have,” Keselowski said. “It was one of those deals. I think I was going to get passed, because I was really down on power down the straightaway. I don’t know, I think so, but it’s hard to say … “I thought I had a shot to clean it off and not lose time, and I misjudged it.” Earnhardt, who salvaged Keselowski’s NASCAR career several years ago by hiring him to drive his Nationwide Series cars and has remained friends with him, said he understands his frustration. “I felt really bad for Brad, to be honest, in that particular instance — to see him in such a situation that he had to be that desperate,” Earnhardt said. “But the temps must have been incredibly high for him to do that, otherwise, he’s the kind of guy that would have just put his foot in it and tried to make the motor last, but apparently it was just more than he could ask for the engine to do.” And he said that Keselowski will rebound. “He’s young enough, good enough; he’s going to have plenty of opportunities to get his wins and enjoy more success in this sport,” Earnhardt said. “He’ll get over this one over time, but yeah, it’s got to be pretty difficult, I’m sure.”

MKZ helps move Lincoln in the right direction With a primary customer base well over 50 years old, Lincoln has struggled to get in touch with younger buyers. The Lincoln MKZ, released just last

year, won’t totally solve that problem, but it is, at least, a step in the right direction. As most know, or if you didn't, you do now, the MKZ is based

off Ford’s very popular Fusion mid-size sedan. They share the same platform and basically the same engines. But the Lincoln is a couple notches up in terms of luxury and comfort. Re-

auto-dimming rearview mirror, the Sync voice command system and the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system with an 8inch touchscreen interface and an 11-speaker sound system with CD player and satellite radio. All this is standard stuff on every MKZ.

cently I had an opportunity to spend time in a beautiful smoked quartz all-wheel drive version of the MKZ. The body of this new Lincoln is sleek and modern, highlighted by a split-winged grill and a crease that wraps tightly around the MKZs body. The heavy rear is finished with a full-width LED taillight panel - a long tradition with the luxury brand. The cabin of the MKZ is a mixed bag. Look inside through the side window and the interior looks amazing and superluxurious with its flowing center stack that house the push-button gear selector buttons (there is no shifter). But looks can be a bit deceiving as you enter the cabin and get a look and feel of things. Many of the interior pieces are made

of cheap plastics and feel flimsy. But no one will be complaining about room in the MKZ. Front seats are comfortable and offer heated and cooled features. In back, rear-seat legroom is generous, but those over six-feet tall may find the coupe-like roof infringes on their headroom. For the gadget freak, there is plenty to get excited about. The vertical column of buttons showing “P” for park, “R” for reverse, etc… on the side of the center stack is a real attention getter and very unique. Other nice features include a keyless ignition/entry (with an outside keypad), dual-zone automatic climate control, 10-way power front seats with power lumbar, driver memory settings, an

Want more? Available is an auto-dimming driver-side mirror, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, wood steering wheel trim, ambient lighting, a navigation system, a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, a powerclose trunk lid, a power tiltand-telescoping steering wheel and a fully retractable panoramic sunroof. The list goes on - as you can see. Under the hood, there are also plenty of choices as Lincoln offers the MKZ with three different powerplants. The base engine is the 2.0 liter Ecoboost turbocharged four-cylinder. While small on paper, it delivers a decent punch, making 240 hp and gets a combined 26 mpg – quite impressive for a luxury car this size. Optional is a 3.7 liter V6 that churns out 300 hp. As expected, mpg rating drops - to 22 mpg combined. Continues on next page

Strong run at Pocono gives Kurt Busch’s team confidence in second half of 2014 season hope as the Cup circuit runs the second half of the 26-race regular season.

we are — this is the type of finish that will help boost the confidence up.”

“Daniel was smooth on what pit calls to make, and the crew guys had sufficient pit stops, and it was just solid execution — a nice turn of the page, so to speak,” Busch said. “Congratulations to our team and ourselves for shedding that new team skin and moving into the second part of the year with a solid type finish as this.

Busch said his young team, formed after he was hired late last year, held a meeting before Pocono to talk about improving their performance.

Kurt Busch finished third at Pocono, but sits at 27th in the Sprint Cup points standings.

Kurt Busch and his No. 41 team at StewartHaas Racing have a win already at Martinsville Speedway this season, but their performance at Pocono Raceway was one of their best in a year that has seen them run strong at times, but also struggle, as evidenced by their poor showing in

the points standings. Even after starting second and finishing third at Pocono, Busch is 27th in the standings, 215 points behind leader Jeff Gordon. But he’s on track to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup, thanks to his win at Martinsville. Busch said the effort by his Daniel Knost-led team at Pocono gives him renewed

2014 Lincoln MKZ AWD... Continued from page 26 The MKZ Hybrid uses a 2.0 four-cylinder along with an electric motor to return an eyecatching 45 mpg, taking direct aim at the Lexus 300h. Frontwheel drive is standard with the MKZ while all-wheel drive is optional. My tester was an all-wheel drive model that used the 2.0 EcoBoost. The little four delivered a surprising amount of power and had sharp throttle response making me forget most of the time that there were only four cylinders under the hood. And being equipped with the all-wheel drive system, the MKZ handled curves far better than I would have given it credit for.

While Lincoln continues to fight its image problem, there is no question that they are putting out nice vehicles. With its great styling, comfort and some performance, the MKZ looks and feels youthful. Yes it

still has a long ways to go before it reaches BMW, Lexus or even Cadillac’s standard, but the MKZ is at least a step in the right direction. - Christopher A. Randazzo

“We all had to look at one another and say: ‘Are you willing to step this up, are you willing to put in the extra hours, are you willing to go the extra mile to make this happen?’” Busch said. “Everybody said yes, and when you cash in on a top-5 run after that, that really builds everybody’s self-esteem up.”
