So I just answered my own question.  Here is the solution for future
googlers.  The DatabaseLink package is not needed.

In[7]:= testlite =
 Database`OpenDatabase[StringJoin[mydir, "/testlite.db"]]

Out[7]= Database`Database["/Volumes/DudesFiles/DATA LLC/Experimental \
Software/sqlite testing//testlite.db"]

In[8]:= Database`QueryDatabase[testlite, "SELECT * FROM ptdata"]

Out[8]= {{"2010-04-17 15:45:49", 1, 43.265, 89.4348, Null, Null, Null,
   Null}, {"2010-04-17 17:17:19", 1, 43.265, 89.4348, Null, Null,
  Null, Null}}

The functions "Database`QueryDatabase" and  "Database`OpenDatabase" appear
in blue as though unrecognized and do not appear in the documentation.
