someone with expertise in the waste
As a solution to the landfill
problem, Kolb supports the current
mandatory recycling legislation be-
ing considered by the city council.
"We know how to do it, and our cit-
izens have a high desire to partici-
pate in recycling," he said.
Like most candidates, Kolb iden-
tifies the city's budget crunch as the
other major campaign issue.
He said the Headlee amendment
override - which would raise city
property taxes if passed by voters
Monday - "will not close the
deficit and won't guarantee we will
not have to come back to the voters
He said a "property tax hike
should be the last resort, not a first
Instead, Kolb subscribes to the
deficit-cutting approach advocated by
Democratic mayoral candidate Ray
Clevenger. If enacted, this plan
would explore alternative sources of
revenue and try to hold spending
down through greater bureaucratic
"The department heads can't have
a guarantee they are going to get
more money," Kolb said.
Kolb also said he has expertise on
student issues, especially campus
crime. He was a representative to the
Michigan Student Assembly and was
Chair of the Campus Safety Task
Force as a student earlier this decade.
Kolb said the city's efforts to
"clean up" the crime-ridden Liberty-
Maynard St. area with extra police
patrols are not enough to win the
fight against campus crime.
"If you have more police in one
area, you just move the crime to an-
other area," he said. "We do need
more visible police, but police can't
be seen as the sole answer... We
have look at the causes of crime
and eradicate them."
Kolb also said the city needs bet-
ter lighting and should provide more
resources to "handle the needs of rape
survivors" and crime victims.

Despite the decrease in the Ann
Arbor crime rate over the last year,
crime is one of Schleicher's primary
concerns. "The whole city has a
crime rate that is too high," he said.
His main solution to Ann Ar-
bor's safety problems is to "increase
the police presence, increase their
numbers." Butdincreasing police
ranks may be difficult during the
city's current budget crunch. Eight
positions in the police department
are vacant and the city, which is fac-
ing an estimated $2.8 million
deficit, is not"currenly making plans
to fill them.
Schleicher said that if the Headlee

to temporarily raise their property
taxes, does not pass, then "more se-
vere cuts must be instituted."
He said the cuts should come
from the "lean fat" in the human
services departments in order to re-
tain police and fire services.
Schleicher says -he wants the
University to pay more for city ser-
vices such as police and fire protec-
tion. He does not, however, advocate
an increase in the University's depu-
tized security force.
"The University should take a
more active role," he said. "The
hands-off policy they have taken
(with the city) before - I think I
have some concerns about that."
University property is not subject
to city property taxes, which de-
creases Ann Arbor's property tax
base by 17 percent.
His goal for the next term is to
"create fiscal responsibility within
the city" and put the city into a sta-
ble budget situation.

Bush names MI resident ambassador
WASHINGTON - President Bush yesterday announced his selection
of Michigan businessperson Peter Secchia, a longtime state Republican
party leader, to be U.S. ambassador to Italy.
Michigan's national GOP committeeperson since 1980, Secchia was
co-chair of Bush's 1988 Michigan campaign and his is a close associate
of former President Gerald Ford.
Secchia has a measure of notoriety arising from his combative,
outspoken style that has often angered more conservative elements in the
During a public encounter at last year's Republican convention in New
Orleans, Secchia used an obscenity to refer to a Livonia Republican
activist who earlier in the campaign had been part of a conservative
coalition opposed to Bush.
Secchia called her "a born bitch," and reports were published in state
Secchia said he expects no problem with winning Senate confirmation.
Oil spill spreads to 500 square miles
VALDEZ, Alaska - The worst oil spill in U.S. history has spread
beyond 500 square miles in one of the nation's most productive fishing
regions, officials said yesterday, as crews all but abandoned hope of
A former oil industry official charged that cutbacks had left operators
of the Port of Valdez with ill-maintained booms,no barge to take on oil
and virtually no properly trained people to respond to the disaster.
Three top administration officials met with representatives of the oil
industry, state and federal agencies to assess the cleanup of 10.1 million
gallons of crude oil spilled from the 987-foot tanker Exxon Valdez.
President Bush said the federal government may take over the cleanup
if it is determined that Exxon Company USA is not doing enough.
Feds make largest drug bust ever
WASHINGTON - Federal authorities have smashed a billion-dollar
international operation laundering drug money and forced Colombia's
Medellin Cartel to alter the way it handles drug profits, the Justice De-
partment said yesterday.
Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, FBI Director William Sessions
and other top law enforcement officials said their "Operation Polar Cap"
has ended with charges against 127 people and two Latin American banks.
Thornburgh called the investigation "the largest money-laundering
crackdown ever carried out by the federal government.
Agents seized a half ton of cocaine and $45 million in cash, jewels,
and real estate, and filed civil actions in an effort to seize as much as $412
million more in assets of the banks, Banco de Occidente of Panama and
Banco de Occidente of Colombia, that are deposited in U.S. bank ac-
Study shows eating Great Lakes
fish may cause serious birth defects
CHICAGO - Conclusive evidence shows eating chemically-tainted
Great Lakes fish can cause health problems in humans, a researcher said
yesterday at a workshop assessing the impact of pollutants on nature.
At greatest risk are infants born to women who eat fish once a week
caught by non-commercial anglers, said Wayland Swain, former director
fo the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes research lab-
oratory in Grosse Ile, Mich.
Citing several previous studies, Swain said such infants tended to be
born early with low birth weights, small head circumferences, neuromus-
cular problems and impaired responses to visual stimuli.
Researchers have found that toxic PCBs contained in the fish can be
transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, said Swain, vice
president of the Eco Logic consulting company located in Ann Arbor.

Pessimists cancel annual convention
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Benevolent and Loyal Order of
Pessimists has decided to nix its plans for an annual convention.
It wouldn't be any fun, and besides, "Traditions require too much
optimism," said President Jack Duvall.
The group has been meeting each year since 1975 on a weekend closest
to April 15, income tax day and also the anniversary of the sinking of the
Titanic, which Duvall calls "a monument to optimism."
"We just don't think you should get unrealistic hopes up," Duvall said.
"You'll only make yourself unhappy."
The club, which he said has a worldwide membership in the "mid-three
digits," formed by happenstance.
A group of friends met in a small restaurant to celebrate a friend's
birthday, Duvall said. Also meeting at the restaurant was a group of
"After a few drinks some words were exchanged and we decided the world
really needed a pessimists group to counteract the influence of these bizarre
optimists and their strange rituals," he said.
