Because so many of the struc-
tures under renovation are close to
campus, many members of the
University community will be
affected. The University and the city
of Ann Arbor need to have a com-
mon goal in mind, said Jim Kosteva,
director of community relations at
"There is a great deal of dialogue
taking place regarding how the city
and University can meet our mutual
interests to serve our respective cus-
tomers and constituents," Kosteva
Attempts to improve Ann Arbor's
parking situation are coming not a
moment too soon for many of Ann
Arbor's downtown business owners.
Tom Hackett, owner of Afternoon
Delight, said parking is a constant con-
"Parking is always a problem,"
Hackett said. "We can't give customers
valet parking. All we can do is keep
complaining to the mayor."
Some said too much emphasis is
placed on the parking problem. Tim
Anderson, general manager of Borders
Books & Music on East Liberty Street,
said he often hears patrons express
"We have many customer com-
plaints," Anderson said. "I think the
people have the perception that there is
no parking, but in reality, there is."

"If we divest, these shares will be
sold to others, and tobacco companies
won't suffer," said Serowik, a Business
senior. "By staying involved, we can try
to change companies' policies."
Tobacco investments make up only one
percent of the University's endowment,
which amounts to about $25 million.
Karnik said this is not enough to wield
any serious influence in the industry.

start of the new school year, which is
when permit prices are highest.
The average price of a one-year park-
ing permit ranges from nearly $100 to
Rebecca Seiser, office manager for
parking and transportation services,
said she does not see many reports of
stolen parking permits.
"We probably receive about 10 com-
plaints a month of stolen parking per-
mits," Seiser said.
Seiser added that individuals who
have had their permits stolen can
receive a new and free permit provided
they file a complaint with the proper
authorities and bring in a signed affi-
davit from a police department proving
the permit was stolen.
Occasionally, parking services
receives false reports of stolen parking
permits. To prevent cheating in the sys-
tem, Seiser said, parking services sub-
mits a list of stolen permits to DPS
every two weeks. If someone has filed
a fraudulent police report, charges can
be brought against them.
"Theoretically, it is a felony to steal
parking permits," said Ann Arbor
Police Department Sgt. Michael
Logghe added that depending on the
circumstances, a person who is caught
stealing a permit can receive up to five
years in jail. The fine and jail term
"Since it represents such a small part
of our endowment. I doubt we have
much of a say as shareholders in these
huge companies," he said.
Ultimately, the decision to divest
would come from the regents, who have
yet to take any action on the issue.
"Since I have been a regent, we have
not discussed the issue," Regent Olivia
Maynard (D-Flint) said. "My sense is
that tobacco investments haven't done
well. This is an issue that must be han-
dled, and we will consider what makes
sense for us as a University," she said.
would depend on the prosecuting attor-
According to Margaret Connors,
assistant prosecuting attorney for
Washtenaw County, an individual who
has committed a larceny, which
involves the theft of any item valued at
$100 or less, can receive 90 days in jail
or a $100 dollar fine.
A individual who has stolen an item
valued at $100 or more has committed
a felony and can receive a jail term of
up to 5 years in prison or a $2,500 fine.
Connors added that a person in pos-
session of a stolen parking permit could
be charged with receiving and conceal-
ing stolen property, larceny or a felony
- even if a police investigation shows
they did not steal the permit. The jail
terms and fines are the same for each
The felony and larceny charges are
determinable based on the circum-
stances of the theft.
,"The prosecution might be involved
in the sentencing if it is a felony,"

sentencing is "up to the judge and pro-

"He's a student ... and he doesn't
need this hanging over his head,"
Mulkoff said in May.
The latest development resulted
from a complaint from the assault vic-
tim that she did not feel safe having
Nadel on campus.
"It pretty much became a 'he said,
she said' thing, and it shouldn't
have," Nadel said. Nadel was
accused of violating a portion of the
Code stating the University is dedi-
cated to providing a comfortable liv-
ing environment for students.
"She didn't feel comfortable, and
(the University) backed down on it,"
The Code is enforced under the idea
of promoting essential values including
safety, and it directly labels assault of a
student as a Code violation.
Under the Code, students have the
right to have either a Resolution Officer
or a Student Resolution Panel arbitrate

County declares state
OAKLAND, Calif. - Alameda
County declared a local state of emer-
gency yesterday because of the high inci-
dence of HIV/AIDS infection among
blacks, hoping to place the region at the
head of the line for new federal funding
aimed at staunching the epidemic.
Saying the county is the first in the
United States to take such action, the
Board of Supervisors unanimously
approved the declaration, which
includes a plan - but no local money
- to increase awareness of the disease
among blacks and to apply for state and
Dr. Arthur Chen, county health offi-
cer, recited a litany of alarming statis-
tics in asking for the state of emer-
gency, noting that the AIDS rate among
blacks in the county is five times that of
whites and Latinos and that intravenous
drug use is a major cause of the dis-
ease, particularly among women.
Although the AIDS rate overall has
fallen, the discrepancy between whites
and blacks with the disease cannot !be
ignored, Chen told the board.
The AIDS rate for blacks in Alameda
County - 85.4 cases per 100,000 resi-
dents - is slightly higher than the rate
nationally - 83.4 cases per 100,000,

Study warns of risks of teen-age jobs
WASHINGTON -A national panel of scientists issued a stern warning yester-
day about the hazards of teen-age employment, saying that young people who work
more than 20 hours a week, regardless of their economic background, are less like-
ly to finish high school and more likely to use drugs and run into trouble with

work at twice the rate of adults and 100,000 show up in hospital emergency rooms
each year for job-related injuries they receive.
In a book-length report, a committee of the National Research Council and the
Institute of Medicine portrayed a generation of young people eager to enter the
workforce, not only to earn money but because parents often encourage it as a way
to teach children responsibility.
Today, eight of every 10 American teen-agers hold down a job some time dur-
ing their school years, and the current tight labor market has made them even more
desirable to employers who can't get adults to fill minimum wage jobs in fast-food
restaurants, grocery stores, retail shops and nursing homes.

Mudslide site turns
into death site
POSOLTEGA, Nicaragua -After a
kiss from his aunt, 12-year-old Isaiah
Vasquez was nailed into a gray wooden
coffin Wednesday by family members
who, even in grief, still counted them-
selves lucky. At least they know where
he is buried.
That is not true with regard to many
of the 1,200 or more victims of the
Casitas Volcano mudslide, which
appears to be the largest single disaster
caused by tropical storm Mitch. It may
not be true in relation to other missing
family members either.
No one knows yet how many people
were killed in the mudslide, but the
tragedy could account for one-fourth or
more of the 9,000 deaths blamed
throughout the region so far on what
was once a Category 5 hurricane.
Isaiah was buried just a few yards
away from the sugar cane mill where
witnesses said Health Ministry workers
had burned 20 unidentified bodies a
few hours earlier in an effort to prevent
The Vasquez family farm lay in the

Water from the rain and the lake in thy"
