MSA to hold alcohol forums
by John Morgan
This October, the University
will be holding its first ever cam-
pus-wide Alcohol Awareness Week
(AAW) in an effort to combat al-
cohol abuse. Sponsored by the
Health Issues Commission of the
Michigan Student Assembly, the
event will take place between Octo-
Scott Gast, the coordinator of
AAW for MSA said in the past,
campus fraternities and sororities
held AAW individually. This year,
the Intrafraternity Council (IFC)
will be one of more than 25 Univer-
sity and community organizations
to sponsor the event.
This year's AAW theme will be
"Who's Calling the Shots?" It was
developed in response to a recent
University Task Force on Alcohol
and Other Drugs report that cited
the lack of programs at the Univer-
sity aimed toward prevention.
Organizers of AAW said they
will try to show how alcohol abuse
relates to other student problems,
such as stress and sexual abuse.
Joseph Owsley, the director of
News and Information Services,
said, "We support the concept... we
want people to be aware of the
dangers of alcohol."

officials suspected the land was
contaminated as far back as 1986.
A memo, dated May 22, from
former City Attorney R. Bruce
Laidlaw to Mayor Liz Brater,
states: "At the time that the city
purchased the property, it was used
in connection with an automobile
repair business. Accordingly, there
was some concern that leaking en-
gines might have caused some soil
Laidlaw said last night that he
did not remember sending the
memo, but he added, "There was
general knowledge among council
and staff that a lot of (previous)

a landfill, he said. He said he sold
the property to the city in 1986 for
Thorson said the city knew of
possible contamination when it ne-
gotiated the transaction.
"They were saying I couldn't get
more than that on the open market
because no other developer could
build there," he said.
Thorson said that after the city
purchased the property, it moved a
waste storage tank into the shop be-
fore demolishing it.
Thorson said he attempted to
contact Brater "within two weeks"
of her victory in April to inform
her about the site.
One of his calls was detailed in
another memo, dated May 13, to
Brater from her former secretary
Peg Eisenstodt, which states:
"(Thorson) said the city told him
the land wasn't worth a lot because
the soil was contaminated and that
no structures should be built

One source, speaking on condi-
