Grizzly Pe
Gatherers
Erend Baybik
ly Staff Reporter
The Grizzly Peak Brewing Company
is working to take another step forward
in'the fight against hunger by volunteer-
ing 10 percent of their lunch proceeds
this week to Food Gatherers, a food
rescue program based in Ann Arbor.
"This is something that the owners
wanted to do," said Manager Scott Joling,
"they feel that it is important to be a part
of the Ann Arbor environment."
.A1though relatively new to the area
the restaurant hopes to set a tone for
other institutions. "Besides, they do a
great job and we just wanted to lend our
support," Joling said.
Food Gatherers works to alleviate hun-
ger in Washtenaw County by collecting

LANSING (AP) - As of today, get-
laid off from your job can mean a
smaller unemployment check, and try-
ing to collect monetary damages from
automobile accidents gets tougher.
Credit card users also may find their
interest rates climbing and cities will be
able to let businesses use contaminated
urban and industrial sites with less red
tape.
The 34 bills that take effect today
Arpresent a largely Republican ideal of
U regulation, lower taxes and fewer
chances to sue businesses for bad prod-
ucts or because they have "deep pock-
ets."
But Democrats, although powerless
to halt the bills, have been able to keep
them from taking effect until today,
months after any of them were signed
into law by Gov. John Engler.
"It's pretty obvious that the Demo-
crats don't like those ideas and they
9 so strongly about it they refused to
put up the two-thirds majority needed
for immediate effect," said Bill
Ballenger, editor of "Inside Michigan
Politics."

dining service Ii one of 120 of these food
donors. After collecting the extra food the
organization distributes it among 80 com-
munity agencies to provide them with
food for people who need it.
"With the tremendous support of the
community, Food Gatherers is able to
rescue and distribute two tons of nutri-
tious food a day," said Director Eileen
Spring.
Jenifer Woods, a customer at the res-
taurant Tuesday, said the contributions
are important. "It's a great cause."
Much of the food goes to places like

SAFE [louse, the Salvation Army and
Ronald McDonald House, making a ma-
jority of the recipients children and low-
income families, Spring said.
This 10-percent donation will mostly
go toward operating expenses, she said.
"Since we are a nonprofit organization
all the money and food is donated and
no one is charged for our services."
Spring said she hopes the program
will motivate more people to get in-
volved in the fight against hunger.
"Folks can donate time or money,"
Spring said, "but no matter what there
is a rcle for everyone to play in the fight
against hunger."
