Drea weather brnngs on winter depression

9 - 1

DETROIT (AP) - Clinical psychologist
Richard Heavenrich knows firsthand how stress-
ful cold, white Michigan winters can be. Snow
during rush-hour turned his usually 20-minute
drive from Troy to his home in Huntington
Woods into a three-hour ordeal.
Feeling the tension build and build as he sat
behind the wheel, he let out a primal scream.
"I knew no one could hear me, he recalled
yesterday, laughing. "People often don't know
how to let out tension."
"Now is the winter of our discontent,"
Shakespeare once wrote. Trapped indoors by
deep snow and cold and kept in the dark by the
short daylight hours, many Michiganians have

the winter blues.
"I call it the hibernation syndrome. You get
the feeling that you want to curl up and don't
want to move," said Heavenrich, associate vice
president for behavioral services for Henry Ford
Health System in Detroit.
The lack of sunlight contributes to a condition
known as seasonal affective disorder. A few
hours under a sun lamp - or a Caribbean vaca-
tion - can clear it up just fine.
A trip to the gym also helps improve many
people's bleak winter moods, as well as shrink-
ing their waistlines.
But this year's severe weather has created fur-
ther problems, Heavenrich said. They include

road rage among commuters stuck in traffic and
fear of travel by the frail, elderly and those who
have been hurt in accidents.
Then there are "close encounters of the win-
ter kind," he said.
"If you're stuck indoors ... and if you have
problems in your relationships, then that kind of
intimacy may lead to greater problems," he said.
People driven indoors by the cold and snow
should try to "make lemonade out of lemons;"
Heavenrich said.
"Spend some more quality time with the kids,
playing games instead of watching the boob
tube," he said.
Southeastern Michigan was expected to

receive up to 5 inches more of snow early today.
The National Weather Service said skies would
be clear to cloudy statewide today, with highs
ranging from near zero in the southwestern
Upper Peninsula to upper teens in the southeast-
ern Lower Peninsula. A mini-heat wave is pre-
dicted for the weekend, with highs in the 30s
statewide by Saturday.
So far this month, 19.6 inches of snow has
fallen at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, the
weather service said. It said 20.8 has fallen so
far this season.
Those figures are far short of those for north-
ern points such as Sault Ste. Marie (62.8 inches
this season, 24.5 inches in January) and Traverse

City (49.2 inches, 30.1 inches). And Eau Claire
and Grand Haven in the Lake Michigan snow-
belt have had 55 inches and 45 inches for the
season. respectively.
But unaccustomed as they are to the seri-
ous winter conditions common in the North,
southeastern Michiganians have had more
difficulty coping with the unusually heavy
With southeastern temperatures well
below freezing for most of January, most of
the snow remains in place. And that has left

states that Phi Delta Theta's live-in adviser, Erik Peterson,
identified four of the five men in the videotape as LSA
sophomores Jared Fishman, Adam Feldheim and Simeon
Maleh and Music sophomore Jordan Schmidt - all Phi Delta
Theta members.
Phi Delta Theta President Mike Novick refused to comment.
The charges stem from an Oct. 15
party, hosted by the fraternity, where "/ a1way$

' antor was seen drinking the night that th ere
before her death. She died only hours
later after falling from her sixth-floor $. n lethii

Reacting to the prosecutor's deci-
sion to only seek misdemeanor Fat
charges, George Cantor, Courtney's
father, said, "I think the police and the prosecutor's office did
the best they could with the evidence.
"I think they want to set an example for the University
ommunity," he said.
George Cantor said a representative from AAPD called
him Friday night to inform him of the fraternity raid.
Courtney Cantor's blood-alcohol level at the time of her
death was .059 percent, lower than the .10 percent level at
which persons are considered legally intoxicated.
Investigators have yet to determine whether alcohol or GHB
played a role in Courtney's death.
Washtenaw County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Joseph
Burke declined to comment after the charges were authorized
yesterday, but George Cantor said Burke indicated to him that
pore serious charges in the future are possible but unlikely.
"I don't think there's any way of proving that the alcohol led
to her death that would stand up in a court of law," George
Cantor said.
But the presence of GHB along with alcohol may explain
some of the events that led to Courtney Cantor's death, said
Deb Kraus, a psychologist at the University's Counseling and
Psychological Services.
"Like alcohol," Kraus said, "it's a central nervous system
depressant" She said some of the adverse effects of GHB
could include "euphoria and confusion, nausea, visual distur-

bances, memory loss, unconsciousness, vomiting, drowsi-
ness, dizziness ... seizures, incoherent speech, coma, severe
respiratory arrest and death."
But, Kraus added, "when it's mixed with alcohol, it multi-
plies. It's like one plus one equals three." GHB is similar to
the drug Rohypnol, "the date-rape drug," Kraus said. "You
could think of it as a cousin to Rohypnol.
"A lot of times people don't know they've taken it - some-
times it's slipped to people;" Kraus added.
George Cantor said at this point
uspected he believes that's how his daughter
got the drug in her system. "This is
wats so out of character for anything I
know about Courtney that I have to
thie assume that it was slipped to her;"he

In the city streets and other public areas, the transporta-
tion department takes care of the snow removal.
After normal snowfalls, the transportation department's
goal is to clear pathways within 24 hours, said Mike Fritz,
one of the department's street maintenance aces and super-
Now, their primary goal is to simply plow enough of the
snow to allow for work and emergency routes, Fritz said.
Fritz added that when time permits, the city removes the
remainder of the snow.
"This is the worst I've seen it in 26 years;" Fritz said.
The University Grounds Department has been blocking
off roads to remove snow late at night for the past week.
Fifteen-feet mounds of snow at Elbel Field and a site
across from Fuller and Mitchell fields on North Campus are
the result of the grounds department's late-night work.
"It's complicated as far as organizing the ventures among
the University, private firms and governmental depart-
ments," said Mike Gaubatz, assistant manager of Grounds
& Waste Management.
Gaubatz also commented on the seemingly everlasting
snow removal.
"This sort of work is usually pretty thankless," Gaubatz
said. "Many of these guys are working 80 hour weeks."
The abnormal amounts of snow have affected other busi-

nesses too,
"In the last two weeks, we've been through four to 500
shovels, easily," said a Meijer team member in the hardware
department. "The shovels are completely out of stock right
now and we've had to order more. This usually doesn't hap-
The Meijer team member, who asked not to be named,
added that all snow-related stocks are low, including salt, ice
melters, car washing fluid and scrapers.
Local ski areas are basking in the extreme amount of nat-
ural snow falls, said Joe Bruhn, general manager of Mt.
Brighton Ski Area.
Katina Coward, office manager at Arbor Building Service
Inc., a local snow-removal company, said "it's like having a
year's worth of work per day, lately."
A change of weather is coming this Friday, Kahlbaum
Unlike the new snow accumulation from last night, the
warmer weather coming this weekend should aid the efforts
of the snow emergency, Wheeler said.
On account of mother nature's grand snow fall, unusual
events are being witnessed.
Cross country skiiers have been reported on Hill Street.
Some mischievous students are taking advantage of the
cold weather by stealing University equipment to allegedly
participate in winter sport activities, such as sledding.
"I've caught some people trying to steal meal trays," said
Jennifer Abe, a student supervisor at South Quad Residence
Hall cafeteria.

"We talked about drugs," he
added. "She always had contempt
for people who took drugs."
Police also mentioned to him that

"it was such a slight amount; "he added, "that there was the pos-
sibility that it was manufactured in her body naturally."
Kraus said people sometimes take GHB voluntarily,
because "it's going to give you those sexual disinhibitions."
George Cantor said the presence of GHB in his daughter's
blood is not likely to affect plans for any lawsuits related to
her death, but "it adds a horrifying aspect to the case."
The Cantors recently hired an attorney to investigate
options for taking civil action. Other than criminal prosecu-
tion and possible civil litigation, fraternity members may face
sanctions under the University Code of Student Conduct. The
Code is the University's internal discipline system that
enforces sanctions as severe as expulsion.
Vice President of Student Affairs Maureen Hartford said,
"In a case in which people serve alcohol to people underage,
it would be a violation of the Code."
Many Code proceedings require that the University receive
a complaint before making charges, but Hartford said "there
are certain things that we are required to act on under the
Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act."
Hartford said the act obligates the University to investigate
cases involving underage drinking by students that are
brought to the University's attention. She said an instance of
prosecutors authorizing charges would fall into that category
and the University would investigate under the Code.

The resolution, which calls for MSA
to "support and help publicize the
march;' as well as send a speaker to the
rally following the march, was present-
ed by LSA Rep. Erica Dowdell, a
Defend Affirmative Action party
The march has traditionally been
sponsored by the Black Student Union,
but that organization has chosen not to
participate this year. United for
Affirmative Action decided to orga-

nize the march this year.
Burden, who opposes affirmative
action, said "endorsing this resolution
would be endorsing affirmative action."
Supporting the resolution, MSA
Vice President Sarah Chopp said, "It is
a day to say we will be politically
proactive about society."
Jujan Buford, who spoke on behalf
of Black Student Uion said, "BSU's
concern is that the MLK march is no
longer an instrument to provoke stu-
MSA passed the resolution with a
majority vote.
