buspected of
'U' student
Ann Arbor police are questioning'
a local man suspected of sexually as-
saulting a University student last
eekend, Ann Arbor Staff Sergeant
omas Caldwell said.
Caldwell said a University
woman told police on Saturday she
was walking toward her home on the
700 block of Arch street when a man
accosted her on the sidewalk, grabbed
her shoulder and pushed her toward
some bushes.
The woman told police she hit
her assailant in the stomach and fled
op her nearby apartment.
After police arrived at the scene
to question the student, Officer
Stephanie Vogel witnessed a man
who fit the student's description fol-
low two other University women
into a nearby building, Caldwell
Vogel confronted the man and re-
quested identification. Although the
suspect has been brought in for ques-
*ioning by police, no arrests have
been made, Caldwell said.
If arrested, Caldwell added, the
suspect would be charged with as-
sault with intent to commit criminal
sexual conduct.

Local teen
arraigned for
Joseph Calbert, a 17-year-old
Ann Arbor resident who police say
held-up and shot an employee of
China On The Run Friday, was ar-
raigned Monday on charges of armed
robbery, attempted murder and two
counts of firearm possession during
the commission of a felony.
Ann Arbor Staff Sergeant
Thomas Caldwell said Calbert, who
has a juvenile record of armed rob-
bery, was sent to Washtenaw
County Jail without bond. Calbert's
preliminary hearing date was set for
April 4, Caldwell added.
Calbert is accused of robbing the
take-out restaurant at 1232 Packard
and shooting one of the employees,
Phillip Camp, twice with a .32 cal-
iber handgun, last Friday afternoon.
Caldwell said Camp, who was
shot once in the stomach and once in
the leg, miraculously survived the
shooting without major injuries.
"For whatever reason, the bullet
entered his stomach, missed all vital
organs, and bounced out onto the
floor," Caldwell said. "His leg was
injured but he sustained no life
threatening injuries at all."
Shortly after the incident on Fri-
day, Ann Arbor police chased Cal-
bert in his car down Packard Road
and then apprehended him on foot.
Police said Calbert has since con-
fessed to committing the robbery.
Among the evidence to be used
against him is a bag containing an

egg roll, a China On The Run re-
ceipt, a large sum of money, Cal-
bert's handgun and the bullet slug
which bounced out of Camp.

Ann Arbor police reported the
downtown bar, the Blind Pig, was
broken into and looted Monday be-
tween 2 a.m. and 12 p.m..
Police said the perpetrators gained
entry by kicking in a door on a sec-
ond floor roof and took over $500 in
cash from a safe.
The safe showed no evidence of
being forced open, police added, and
damage to the roof is estimated at

$15,000 worth of property and
equipment missing from University
buildings and residence halls.
Ann Arbor Detective Doug Bar-
bour said between March 9 and
March 12 more than $13,000 in
computer equipment was taken from
the University School of Business.
Barbour also said more than
$2500 worth of computer equipment
was taken from the University's In-
formation Technology Division at
611 Church St.
There were no signs of forced en-
try at either location, Barbour added.
Other recent larcenies include a
string of thefts last week at the Mary
Markley residence hall and a series of
lootings last weekend at South
Officers said in the residence hall

However, Sheldon's Demo-
cratic/Green challenger, Valerie Ack-
erman, says city government must
do more to ensure the pace of devel-
opment doesn't hurt the city's envi-
ronment in the long run. "The profit
making system has brought us Love

Ackerman contends Ann Arbor
must stop overdevelopment and pre-
serve the city's diminishing wet-
lands, woodlands and green spaces.
She favors implementation of a
"natural features ordinance" which
would protect certain natural features
from development.
Ackerman said in addition to con-
trolling the rate of development, and
protecting the environment, the
council should work to help the
plight of the homeless with more
low-income housing, and improve
citizens' relations with the police.
"We're experiencing the fallout
from the 'me generation' of the sev-
enties and eighties where people
were trained to pursue self-interest,
resulting in deepening social ills,"
Ackerman said.
Ackerman - one of the Michi-
gan's first two Green candidates -
said her social philosophy stems
from the feminist view that every-
thing is interconnected within the
web of life.
"Everything I do, I think of what

the consequences of my actions will
be - personally, for my family, and
for my community," Ackerman said.
"Think globally and act locally."
Ackerman's social agenda in-
cludes supporting the creation of a
citizens' police review board. This
body would listen to residents'
grievances as well as foster better re-
lations between Ann Arborites and
the police, she said.
In addition, Ackerman would like
to use Downtown Development Au-
thority money to subsidize develop-
ers to construct low-cost housing.
Ackerman added that she believes
in "true grass roots governing" and

When Jodi Goldman met Dennis
Hayes last summer, sparks flew.
Next Monday their brainchild
will be born - Earth Week 1990.
Hayes, who organized the na-
tional Earth Day in 1970, was plan-
ning another Earth Day for 1990.
Goldman, an LSA junior, attended a
speech given by Hayes in California
last summer. As Hayes urged stu-
dents to participate in Earth Day
1990, Goldman decided the Univer-
sity needed an Earth Day of its own.
Goldman called friends from the
Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan (PIRGIM) to organize a
Earth Day group for the University.
LSA senior Amy Sabin described
their first meeting: "We met ,in
someone's living room and said,
'Earth Day, that sounds good. What
is it?"'
"Looking through some 1970 lo-
cal newspapers we realized that Earth
Day started here. So we wanted to
put together the best Earth Day 1990
event in the country," Goldman said.
Six people attended the first
meeting. And they told two friends,
who told two friends, and so on and
so on...
Today Earth Day 1990 has about
100 members and a core group of 50
"It was just incredible to see the
people rise up," Sabin said.
"It was really rewarding to see a
lot of other people out there who
want to direct their energies to the
environment," said LSA senior
Rachel Stevens, an Earth Day 1990
member ever since Goldman's first
living room lecture.
"When we formed," said Gold-
man, "people weren't confident in
our organizational ability, but we
proved them wrong."
School of Natural Resources ju-
nior Matt Rosen witnessed Earth
Day 1990's growth. "I was im-

pressed with the scope of the organi-
zation. It's a large and dynamic
group that's getting a lot of things
done," Rosen said.
School of Natural Resources se-
nior Jen McPeck learned about Earth
Day from a class announcement.
"Before that, I had never heard of
Earth Day," she said. She and about
20 other people attended Earth Day
1990's first organizational meeting
at the beginning of fall term.
School of Engineering junior Ir-
win Weingarten saw some Earth
Week literature and realized "there
were a bunch of activities being
planned for Central Campus, but
nothing was being planned for the
As an engineer with strong feel-
ings about environmentalism,
Weingarten felt Earth Week needed
to include North Campus. He set out
to find environmentally-sound re-
search being done on campus, and
companies creating products designed
to protect the environment for next
Tuesday's Earth Day Technology
Fair and next Thursday's Poster
Gallery of Environmental Engineer-
ing Research.
"A lot of people blame the engi-
neers for environmental problems,
but it's the engineers who will be
asked to solve the problems, either
by adjusting existing technology or
creating new technology that pro-
vides the same material comforts,"
Weingarten said.
Susan Powers, a School of Engi-
neering Ph.D. candidate and Earth
Day 1.990 member said, "I feel
strongly that engineering students
don't get enough education about
engineering careers that help the en-
vironment." By finding and inviting
companies to the Technology Fair,
she hopes to show engineering stu-
dents that these options exist.
Powers also hopes to dispel the
notion that engineers don't care

about environmental issues.
McPeck and LSA junior Ab-
erdeen Marsh organized a panel dis-
cussion "Consumer Choices: Eco-
nomics and the Environment" featur-
ing speakers from Detroit Edison,
the Huron Valley Greens and the
People's Food Co-op.. They hope the
program will give speakers and stu-
dents a chance to learn from one an-
"People have a lot to offer,"
McPeck said. "But you don't learn
that until you bring them together
for a common goal."

ganizing and promoting of next
week's events has taken its toll on.

"We're killing ourselves," said
Goldman. "We're sacrificing our
grades, our health and our social

carry on because they hope the event
will affect people's behavior and
make a difference for the environ-
ment. "I very much want to spread
the word," said Stevens. "I'm hoping
Earth Week will spur people to get
involved with the environmental.
movement and change their personal.
Stevens listed recycling, boy-,
cotting Styrofoam, buying organic
produce, and conserving gasoline,
electricity and water as "little things"
people can do in their everyday lives
to protect the environment.
The group hopes Earth Week will
lay the groundwork for a permanent
campus organization dedicated to en-
vironmental issues.
. "Hopefully, we can create a sub- *
stantial environmental group on
campus. So when I leave here I:.
know there will be a base for future'
activities," said LSA junior Linda..

and fund-raising for Earth Day 1990.
gered recycling would set a goal for a
voluntary program. Unfullfillment
of the goal would "trigger" manda-:
tory recycling.
"I'll oppose mandatory recycling ~t
until someone shows me it's abso-
lutely necessary," Richardson said.w
"We're not going to ram recycling
down peole's throat."
Reflecting the views of other
democratic candidates, Peterson said
the city is woefully behind the times
in its approach to recycling. "If
(recycling) had been done ten years
ago, we wouldn't have the current
landfill problems," she said.
Peterson has been involved be-
hind the scenes in Ann Arbor poli-
tics for a decade. She served as a
democratic precinct captain and has
worked on Fifth Ward campaigns for
the last eight years.
Calling herself a grass roots per-
son, she said constituents would take
control and be involved in decisions
if she is elected.
"When you're much closer to
constituents, you're less likely to set
your own agenda," she said.
Richardson - the city's mayor
pro-tem - is stressing his leader-
ship position on council.

would set up constituents' meetings
in order to reach out to the public.
Sheldon said her involvement in
the community enables her to keep
close contact with residents, and
stressed that working on a variety of
community service projects has
given her a broad background in a
variety of issues.
Participation on the Parks Recre-
ation and Open Space Task Force,
Ann Arbor's Recreation Advisory
commission, and in the Ann Arbor
Historical Foundation are some of
the ways Sheldon has gained this
community experience.
"If I can get out and do some-
thing, I get enormous satisfaction
from that," Sheldon said.
Stressing constituents' basic
needs, Sheldon said, will be the fo-
cus of her reelection campaign. She
described the Second Ward residents
as "traditionally oriented."

Referring to those who live in
the Ann Arbor's Old West Side -
an area where many of old houses
have been restored - Peterson said,

investments they have made in their

disappearance of greenspace."

who would limit development are
afraid of the future.
