Northwood communitAL
rebuilds after loss :

(A 11CAGO ,AP)

Id marketers

beware.
Ameritech Corp. is offering what it
says is a firstlof-its-kind service to fil-
ter out those annoying sales calls that
always seem o come during dinner.
The messige is loud and clear. Our
customers amply want control over
telemarketirg,:' Diane Primo, president
Sof product rianagerent for Ameritech,
said yesterday, the first day the service
was offered in parts of Chicago and
Detroit.
It will be expanded to Ameritech cus-
tomers throughout the Great Lakes
region next year and also will be offered
to other phone companies, officials
said,
Here's how it works:
First, a customer must have Caller
ID,"then callers whose numbers come
through as "unavailable" or "unknown"
are intercepted by a greeting.
"'The numnber you are calling has
Privacy Manager" the message begins
and then asks the caller to identify him-
self or herself after a beep.
If the caller does so, the call then
rings through to the recipient, who has
three options: to accept the call, to
decline the call or to deciine the call and
1 tell the caller namely, a telemarketer
- not to call again.

Ameritech officials say the beauty oti
the system is that seven out of every 10
unidentified callers, often salespeople,
simply hang up, according to data from
product tests. That means the phone
never rings.
"'That's a lot of dinners, movies and
bedtime stories that went uninterrupt-
ed," said John Rooney, president of
Ameritech consumer services.
There are a few inconveniences,
namely for friends and family members
who have their numbers blocked from
caller ID - or who call from pay
phones or states that don't transmit their
phone numbers - and, thus, have to go
through the screening process every
time they call from an unidentified
number.
There's also a few-second lapse
added to the bill of every long-distance
caller who doesn't hang up.
Ameritech officials, who are in the
process of patenting the Privacy
Manager software so they can offer it to
other phone companies, say the incon-
veniences are minimal. In fact, they say
tests of the product have shown it to be
the company's most popular service in
more than a decade.
Reviews on the streets of downtown
Chicago yesterday were mixed.
Several people said they would rather

themI," ;Ilet Icy said.
I eatlley sid he is sattisfiedi with ho~k
I )t ffcr responld to violent inlcidenlts.
For the past year, University
Ilousing administrators have tried to
help the Northwood community cope
with the murder.
"Ilhe atermath of death was trau-
matic for the family housing communi-
ty" said Alan I evy, director of housing
affairs. "It was one of the most horren-
dous things people had to deal with"
Most of the residents who lived by
Williams have remained in the
Northwood community.
Kayo Blackwood, a Northwood res-
ident since August 1997, said she is still
"carrying the murder" with her.
"I felt like this did not happen in
daily life. I thought it only happened in
the movies;' Blackwood said.
The loss of Tamara Williams was not
just a case of a University student being
killed, it acknowledged a fact that many
are afraid to talk about - that domestic
violence does exists on college campuses.
According to the recent survey
on domestic violence released by the
FBI, in 1990, 30 percent of women
who were murdered were killed by
husbands or boyfriends. The report
also st ates that 22 percent of college
students are victims of domestic
violence, as are 10 percent of high
school students.
Sarah Ilueser, training and educa-
tion program coordinator for the Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Center, said there are many misconcep-
tions on campus about domestic vio-
lence She said there is a myth that it
only happens in lower-class families.
"D)omestic violence happens every-
where" 1lueser said. "No community is
immune. lhe I Jniversity is struggling to
incorporate what awareness of domes-
tic violence means to their own life."
Ilartford said it is hard to keep the
community aware because every year the
University community population rises
25 percent.
Susan Kaufman, associate director
for the University's Center for the
Iducation of Women agrees with
I lueser.
"Domestic violence in a college
community is just like domestic vio-
lence in any other community;" she
said. "We want people to know that the
community cares and help is available.
People are working hard to eliminate
violence against women."
Although there are many places for
women 1nd men to receive shelter from

Northwood resident
an abusive mate, FBI reports state that
only 18 percent of abused women file
police reports. The majority of the vic-
tims are afraid of retaliation from the
abuser.
In 1995,Tamara Williams did report
Nelson's physical abuse to the police
and he was found guilty of domestis
violence. Williams grandmother said
she was not aware her granddaughter
was in an abusive relationship.
"I have always told my children to
be aware of who your friends are and to
always talk to me," Hart said. "We
should be able to communicate."
Hart said that while raising six girs,
she insisted on meeting "every yonrig
man" who dated her daughters. Ihart
also said she had only had one brief
encounter with Nelson.
"I hope she did not die in vain,"
Hart said. "I hope that because oC it
somebody will be aware of what can
happen if you get mixed up with the
wrong people. No family should have
to go through this,"
Hart said that the day after. her
granddaughter's funeral, she had a talk
with all of her grandchildren and great
grandchildren.
"I told them never let it get out of
hand," Hart said. "We just don't wanio
go through this again. It's the saddet
thing in life."
Matthew Green, a community-aide
for Northwood V, is raising a 4-year-old
daughter and 9-year-old son with-his
wife. IHe said he is already prepang
his children in how to handle i.tigh
societal issues such as this one. .
Green said he talks to his 9-year old
about sex, violence and the diffe rtra(e
between right and wrong as a child and
human being.
"Anything open in society, I talk
about becaus e he needs to be aware,"
Green said.
Green's 4-year-old daughter is tuo
young to remember the murder kist
year, but he says that he has started to
"instill in her a tremendous amount of
self esteem and pride.

Students find many job openigs on campus

JOBS
Continued from Page i.
Accompanying this demand for workers, and per-
haps due to this huge demand, unemployment rates
have been strikingly low.
The Michigan Employment Service Agency report-
ed a 2.5-percent unemployment rate in Washtenaw
County for the month of July and a 2.1 percent rate in
Ann Arbor.
Both numbers are significantly lower than the 4.5
percent nationwide unemployment rate for July. The
rates for August vwill be available later this week.
It is difficult to determine how the county has man-
aged to maintain such low unemployment rates, some
experts say.
"Economistsdon't understand how the labor market
could be so 'tight;"' :said economics Prof. George
Johnson, who has done research on long-term unem-
ployment.
Johnson dines "tight" as a market that has signif-
icantly low anemployment and a high demand for
workers.
"It's almotst like World War II, when they would
nearly drag people otfolfthe street near Willow Run to

make BI3-17's," he said.
"With a tremendous excess demaind for la bo a sub-
stantial rise in wages should have occurred" oon
said, but he doubts wages actually have risen.
Area business managers agree these statistics lae
a great impact on 1Jniversity students who are job
hunting. Potential employers of students are not only
abundant, but willing to work with class schedules.
"If there are certain shifts students can't work, is,-
ally I cannot hire them. But there are quite a 1ew time
slots available right now," said Amal Sabbagh, a man-
ager at the Azure Grill.
Many markets are wide open to students in the cr-
rent job climate.
"It doesn't matter if you are a student or not at this
time of year' said Jan 'urner, a greenhouse miiunaer
at Garden (enter and Nursery in Ann Arbor. "We
kind of adhere to the students' schedule. It's a avcry
physical job, so it's tough for students to go hore and
study, but we're always hiring," she said.
Some students seeking jobs, including ILSA first-year
student Amelia Juhl, say they're not having a ditficult
time finding employment. While she has only applied
for two positions, she said she has seen many opportu-
nities.

But Jul said, "'lhcre's just nothing I've seen that JI
really wai to do. '(pen' doesn't mean avorable."
.1uhl said she is optimistic shei will find a satist'ying
job opportunity.
Thie appeal ol' the current joh market to students
could signify a decline in the number of students t'ill-
mng work-study jobs,
SIarry Greene a secretary at the University Medical
('enter, worries that amca hfsinesses may pull students
away trom a work-study position lie is trying to fill.
"W have a very hims department," he said. "We
aw ays look rwxard to students coming back in the
kill. We're miserahle without them"
Greene said i,. heeleves students t'ind it easier to
find a "normna" job than to investigate work-study
options. ''It student can work at Mel)(onald's for 9
'n hour, it's hard to attract them to a work-study posi-
tion;" he said.
Assistant I)irector of limancial Aid Vickie Crupper
said she d ~es not believe this is a probable scenario.
"On campus, the work-study program is very com-
petitive with wages) (Crupper said. "For the past few
years we have been blessed with a low unemployment
rate. We don't see that as sorething that detracts from
our program."
