Local Salvation Army store closes

BY FRAN OBEID
Ann Arbor's Salvation Army Red
Shield Store closed its doors Dec.
31, under an extension granted by
Washtenaw County, which bought
the building in 1987. A Salvation
'Army official said yesterday they
hope to relocate in the city within a
year.
"The county wanted the property
and offered us a fair price," said Sal-
vation Army Capt. Roger Senn. "It
was a bad location for us."
Senn said the Salvation Army has
been looking for a new location
since July 1 and may consider build-
mg a new store.
Washtenaw County officials, who
aid $440,000 for the building at
05 E. Ann St., plan to tear it down
and use the property for county of-
Tices. The Salvation Army was sup-
posed to vacate the building in Oc-

tober, but was allowed to operate
until the end of the year.
On the last day, officials said do-
nations were "waist-high" since
many people waited until the last
minute to make donations to receive
tax breaks for the end of the year.
On average, about 100 people
donate to the store daily, but offi-
cials said at least twice that many
donated on Dec. 31. Officials said
about 50 people shop there daily for
clothes, furniture and other items.
Donations are distributed to other
stores twice a night.
"It was a central drop-off loca-
tion... [we] could not keep up with
the amount being donated," said Don
McKee, business manager for the
Salvation Army.
Store manager Lisa Davis said,
"A lot of people needed the store.
From what the customers say, there

is going to be a lot of people hurt
by the closing. The customers even
talked of petitioning."
Many of the customers were el-
derly lower-income people, as well
as college students who often pur-
chased furniture.
"It will hurt the lower-income
people, but I'm sure the city is glad
it [the Salvation Army] is not going
to be there anymore because the
street people would sleep in the
back, drink there and cause noise or
go through the clothing dropped off
at night," McKee said.
Washtenaw County Commis-
sioner and Board Chair Dillard
Craiger proposed in September rent-
ing the store to the Ann Arbor

Shelter Association to use as a day
shelter. "Someone has to make a
move to help the homeless people."
But due to asbestos present in the
building, county officials said it is
more cost efficient to remove the
asbestos and tear down the building
than to renovate it.
"In December the commissioners
passed a resolution to work with the
Ann Arbor Shelter Association to
find an appropriate alternative site
for the [day shelter] program," said
Washtenaw County Administrator
Saul Cooper.
The Ypsilanti Salvation Army
store at 1960 E. Michigan Ave. will
pick up donations from the Ann Ar-
bor area until a new location is
found.

PUZZLED ABOUT WEIGHT CONTROL?

"~INGES 2

THE WEIGHT CONTROL CLINIC
at
THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Court papers made public
in Pentagon fraud case
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - A consultant under investigation in the
Defense Department fraud case once left his car in the Pentagon parking
lot so a federal employee he had paid $100 a week could place government
documents in the trunk, newly released court papers showed yesterday.
The papers search warrants and affidavits were made public as defense
attorneys speculated that indictments in the nationwide investigation that
began in September 1986 could be returned as early as tomorrow.
Sharon Dibbley, spokesperson for U.S. Attorney Henry Hudson, said
the federal grand jury meets today and tomorrow. She would not say
whether Hudson expects indictments then, or when any plea-bargain
arrangements might be disclosed.
Some companies and their employees are known to be talking to the
government about plea bargaining.
Soviets may delay troops
withdrawal from Afghanistan
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan- The chief Kremlin negotiator on
Afghanistan said yesterday he is not certain that Soviet troops will
withdraw on schedule if Moslem guerrillas keep fighting the communist
Afghan regime.
Under a U.N.-mediated agreement, Soviet soldiers began leaving
Afghanistan on May 15, 1988, half were out by Aug. 15 and the
remaining 50,000 are to gone by Fe. 15. The guerrillas, not parties to the
agreement, have continued the war.
Yuli Voronstov, Soviet deputy foreign minister and ambassador to
Afghanistan told reporters when he arrived in Islamabad yesterday:
"If the cease-fire holds and there is no fighting in Afghanistan, then
that's a very good situation for the Soviet forces." When asked what
,would happen to the withdrawal plans if the insurgency continues, he
said, "We shall see, all of us. I don't know."
20 held hostage in restaurant
LOVELAND, Colo. - A gunner who held 20 people hostage at a
restaurant before being shot to death by police told a waitress to fetch his
boots because "a good cowboy dies with his boots on." the woman said.
As Wayne Strozzi, 35, hung on, mortally wounded, he shot to death
another waitress. Another hostage was slain by police as he escaped
through a bathroom window and fled the Riverhouse Restaurant during
Tuesday's melee.
Two police officers also were wounded by Strozzi during the incident,
which began when the paroled drug offender, apparently angry that his
estranged wife had begun dating another man, assaulted her at her home.
He fled first to his own home, and then to the restaurant, where he held
off police for more than an hour.
Detroit murders down in '88
UNDATED- Homicide cases are fluctuating in Michigan's five largest
cities, with family disputes and drugs often blamed fro the slayings,
police officials from Warren to Grand Rapids said yesterday.
Leading the state in homicides was Detroit, where 630 killings
occurred in 1988, said Detroit Police Sgt. Christopher Buck. In 1987,
there were 686 slayings, up from 648 in 1986.
Flint had the state's second-highest number of slayings in 1988 with
43 homicides, followed by Grand Rapids with 26, Lansing with 11, and
Warren with 10.
Grand Rapids Police Lt. Victor Gillis said the city's district court hired
a domestic-abuse advocate last year to help authorities control household
fights before they become deadly. "The majority of these things occur
privately between people; they're disagreements or arguments over money
or a past relationship," he said.

Raymond Clevenger
Party: Democrat
Clevenger, 62, is currently a self-
employed attorney in Ann Arbor.
He was appointed to chair the
Michigan Corporations and
Securities Commission in 1961. He
spent one term in the U.S. House of
Representatives from 1965 to 1967,
but was not reelected. Clevenger
was appointed in 1967 to head the
Great Lakes Basin Commission, a
federal board established to
investigate pollution and other lake-
related issues.
Clevenger received a B.A. in 1949
from the London School of
Economics and graduated from the
Michigan Law School in 1952.

Gerald Jernigan
Party: Republican
Jernigan, 45, is a Senior investment
analyst at the University of Michigan.
The incumbent mayor, Jernigan has
been the Ann Arbor GOP chairman, a
planning commissioner, and
chairman of the Zoning Board of
Appeals. He has also served three
terms on City Council, from 1982 to
1987. Jernigan was elected mayor in
1987, on the pledge to increase the
power of city officials and redirect
the council's focus towards more
local issues.
Jernigan has earned degrees in
finance from Michigan State
University and Western Michigan
University.

chose to become candidates or public
figures," Clevenger said.
Clevenger said the present
administration has not done anything
to deal with the overcrowded land-
fills.
"Let's implement something,
let's do something, let's get ready
because down the line'our landfill
will be higher than five ski moun-
tains," Clevenger said. "Nothing is
getting done now, and I don't under-
stand why."
Ann Arbor's greatest resource is
its people, added Clevenger, and as
mayor he would seek their input on
issues such as crime, affordable
housing, and homelessness.
However, some Republicans be-
lieve that Clevenger's unfamiliarity
will work against him in the April
election.
"Clevenger is totally unknown in
this area," said Jerry Schleicher (R-
4th Ward). "Unfortunately I can't say
anything about him because no one
knows about him. I think the
Democrats might not even know."
Schleicher further praised incum-
bent Jernigan's leadership ability in
"controlling city hall and city gov-
ernment." He said since the mayor
has been in office there has been lit-
tle controversy within city politics,
categorizing Jernigan as an
"efficient."
Jesse Levine, an LSA senior run-
ning for city council in the April
election, also worked on the Demo.
cratic mayoral selection committee
that picked Clevenger to run on their
ticket.
"He's an outstanding candidate on
all levels: state, local, and federal,"
said Levine. "He'll make Jernigan
look like a puppy."
Jernigan was unavailable for
comment.
In addition to Clevenger's interest
in environmental issues, his practice
as a municipal lawyer demonstrates
his interest in the business and eco-
nomic areas of the city, Levine said.
According to last year's statistic.

EXTRA
Cushions cause conflict
The Slice company just couldn't get enough Monday at the Rose
Bowl. They had a big float in the Tournament of Roses parade, free
samples all around, and a blimp up above the stadium keeping Goodyear
company.
That wasn't enough. They had to pass out free seat cushions. Passing
out things that can be thrown on the field, especially things with no real
value after the game is over, is not a good idea.
And sure enough, it came to pass. After the Michigan band performed
its halftime show, they exited toward the Trojan side of the field to the
welcome of a storm of high-speed seat cushions. Some direct hits were
scored but most fell to the field or on the first few rows.
Yeah, USC started - and they were up 14-3 at the time - but the
Michigan section played the same tune when the Trojan band left the
field.
Perhaps, next time these two teams face each other, the two sections
can be placed next to each other. Maybe Slice will pass out paperweights.
