Last night, at a public hearing,
Washtenaw County residents voiced
their concern to the federal EPA
about a proposed permit
modification which would allow
Gelman Sciences, Inc. to pump
contaminated ground water into an
existing deep well.
Currently, Gelman can pump
contaminated water which is a by-
product of their production of
medical filters into the well, but

form of a permit modification - to
pump contaminated standing table
water, which is not a by-product,

Taylor told students that the way
to succeed in America's
predominantly white, corporate
world is to work long hours, stay
away from alcohol and other drugs,
and take some time for themselves
each day to assess their goals and
"It's only quiet time," she said,
explaining the moments she spends
on her own self-encouragement,
"that helps us to get to our truths."
Taylor revealed that her "quiet
time," as well as being a single
parent, motivated her to seek a
position as beauty editor at Essence.
Eighteen years ago, she walked into
its office with only a high school
diploma and a limited resume, but a
self confidence in her abilities,
which she impressed upon the
magazine's staff, she said.
TAYLOR now urges students to
take advantage of their privileged
position and continue their
education, in addition to maintaining
a positive attitude.
"It's education and information
that separate the 'haves' from the
'have-nots'," she said. Citing high
Black school drop-out rates,
unemployment, and increasing
numbers of Blacks in prison, Taylor
said there currently is a war on
Blacks, and "the cannons are pointed
at (Black) men."
Taylor appealed to Blacks to work
in unison, while occasionally
extending an extra word of support
for Black women. BSU Vice-
President Denise Brooks in her
introduction recounted a conversation
yesterday between Taylor and herself.
The speaker's message to Blacks,
Brooks said, was that "by
empowering Black women, we
empower Black people."
Taylor described Essence as a
service publication which speaks to
a broad audience, but specifically
addresses concerns of Black women.
"ESSENCE has given Black
women a positive image," she said,
"and is one magazine that is going
to represent them spiritually as well
Taylor also expressed a need for a
national daily Black newspaper that
would examine issues from a Black
perspective, and she advised aspiring
journalists to get a broad base of
