LANSING (AP) - For prisoners and convicted
felons in Michigan, the new laws coming on the
books this week pack a particularly stiff punch.
Others will be squeezed by the new laws as well,
from abortion providers to high-tech criminals,
truckers, drunk drivers, animal abusers and those
who scare anyone in a nursing home. Even people
who sneak cable TV service into their homes with-
out paying for it will feel the laws' bite.
Many of the 61 measures taking effect today and
tomorrow merely tweak Michigan law with minor
changes. But of those with a more big-ticket
impact, the vast majority carry a get-tough mes-
There are laws to create new crimes and expand
penalties for existing ones. There also are several

agers hoping to drive, state employees planning for
retirement and budding politicians seeking a local
office, to name a few.
But prison inmates and convicted felons get the
brunt of this wave of new laws with a raft of new
A 2-year-old state registry showing where
Michigan's 22,000 convicted sex offenders live
will be opened to public view as of tomorrow for
the first time.
In addition, name changes for those with crimi-
nal records will become more difficult and state
police now must be notified. Certain sex crimes
can never leave a person's record. And inmates
must start paying some of their health care costs
and all of their court costs, including filing fees,
for lawsuits they file.
Wendy Wagenheim, an official from the
Michigan's American Civil Liberties Union, calls
the measures "a band-aid solution" that heap more
punishment on those already paying for their
crimes, without dealing with the causes of crime,
such as drugs and growing numbers of disenfran-
"People who commit crimes should be pun-
ished," she said.
"(But) the Legislature can't pretend that this is a
thoughtful or systematic approach to crime con-
trol. What they're doing is being tough on crime
without being smart on crime ... and fooling the
people into thinking that crime is being effectively
John Truscott, Gov. John Engler's spokeperson,
says the state is making efforts at both efds of
criminal activity: before and after it happens. But
he made no apologies for increasingly harsh-,pun-

criminal behavior continues to get more violent
and more prevalent, people want to feel sAih'd

For example, you'll no longer get a point' on

they'll have to at least notify the owner first.

Ford says GOP

DETROIT (AP) -Former President
Gerald Ford says the current occupants
of the White House have abused its sta-
tus for political donations, and believes
Republicans need to move toward the
nation's political center.
In a wide-ranging interview with The
Detroit News, the only Michigan resi-
dent to ever become president said he
was "deeply disturbed" by the way
modern political campaigns are paid
for, and said President Clinton's money
raising tactics troubled him as well.
"There is no question, across the
board, it is unhealthy the way money is
raised and the amount of money that is
raised," Ford said in an interview with
the newspaper from New York City.
"There is no doubt this White House
has abused that more than any White
House in my memory."
Looking ahead to the next presiden-
tial election, Ford said, "Republicans
cannot regain the White House unless
they operate to have all elements partic-
ipate and go down the middle of the

Finance reform proposed
MIDLAND (AP) - A state repre-
sentative says the only way to control
campaign spending is with public fund-
ing, and plans to introduce three bills to
put such a system in place in Michigan.
Rep. Howard Wetters (D-
Kawkawlin) said he will introduce bills
to provide public funding, reduce the
size of donations and reduce the influ-
ence of political action committees to
"All those wonderful mechanisms
that both parties have used to circum-
vent contribution limits would go
away," Wetters told the Midland Daily

way," Morrison said. "And sometimes
the best team doesn't win."

While chairs were laid out for 600
people to witness the presentation, fans

Morrison's career has been highlight-
ed by ups and downs, but as Berenson
said, it was four years to remember.
"He not only had a Hobey Baker sea-
son;" Berenson said. "He had a Hobey
Baker career. When I first saw him he
was a scrawny kid ... he had something
special in him that made him want to be
better than the average player."
And his unparalleled career at
Michigan bears that out.
In his sophomore season, Morrison
led the nation in both points and assists
and began to climb the Michigan record
Despite being hampered by a knee
injury at the outset of his junior cam-
paign and a broken wrist for the second
half of the season, Morrison tallied
enough points in his reduced schedule to
win the scoring title at the end of the sea-
son. He also scored the winning goal in
overtime of the national championship
game last year to secure Michigan's first
national title since 1964.
And this was the season Morrison
hoped would be his best. He set career
highs in points with 88, assists with 57
and goals with 31 - including one in
the national semifinal. He also set
Michigan records for points and assists
in a career, but fell short of his ultimate
goal - a repeat championship.
Morrison concluded his remarks in
"It has been an honor to play for the
University of Michigan," he said.
Teammate Mike Legg summed up
the emotions of his classmates and
added to Morrison's remarks when dis-
cussing the captain.
"It has been an honor to play with
Brendan Morrison," he said. "It was
like we were accepting it with him.'
