4 Mich. residents
among 217 killed
in EgyptAir crash
AROUND THE NATION
Los Angeles Times
-NANTUCKET, Mass. - An
EgyptAir jetliner plunged suddenly and
mysteriously into the Atlantic Ocean
south of this resort island early Sunday,
killing all 217 people aboard and strew-
ing the ink-black sea, 270 feet deep,
ith their remains.
Norm and Joan Shapiro of Oakland
County's Bloomfield Township and
Larry and Edith Kowalsky of West
Bloomfield were among the 217 people
on board the flight bound for Cairo,
according to media reports. The two
couples were traveling together on
The plane, a Boeing 767, was Flight
990, which originated in Los Angeles
and added fuel and passengers in New
York on its way to Cairo. Its abrupt and
rapid fall raised questions about sabo-
tae. The FBI and other intelligence
:agencies began investigations, but
-President Clinton and other federal
pfficials said there was no immediate
evidence of foul play.
Searchers hunted the Atlantic for the
fourth time in three years, seeking bodies
and pieces of a plane lost at sea. The first
was after TWA Flight 800 went down off
Long Island, N.Y, in July 1996, the sec-
ond after Swissair Flight 111 crashed off
Nova Scotia in September 1998, and the
third after John F Kennedy Jr., his wife
and her sister were killed off Martha's
Vineyard last July.
By nightfall, the searchers, aboard
II aircraft and four cutters, had
found a body, two partially inflated
life rafts and some life jackets and
seat cushions. Coast Guard Rear
Adm. Richard Larrabee said none
showed burn marks, which would
have suggested a fire or explosion
aboard the plane. The Coast Guard
said the sea was 58 degrees, too cold
for survival after 12 hours.
The National Transportation
Safety Board dispatched a team of
investigators to the crash site. "I
want to ensure all Americans and all
Egyptians, and indeed everyone
around the world, that we will devote
all the necessary resources to find

The ship's crew were the first to arrive at the crash site.
Defense in Shepard case rests abruptly
DENVER -The defense abruptly ended its case vesterday in the trial of a man
accused of beating Matthew Shepard, just hours after the presiding judge ruled that
the so-called "gay panic" defense would not be allowed.
The trial in Laramie, Wyo., moved toward a swift close after State District Judge
Barton Voigt ordered that the controversial defense strategy could not be employed.
In a ruling drafted during the weekend, the judge said that, despite protests to th
contrary from attorneys, the defense's tactic was effectively the same as a temp
rary insanity or diminished capacity defense, neither of which is allowed under
The judge's ruling was not a surprise. Voigt had earlier scolded Aaron
McKinney's court-appointed defense attorneys for invoking the strategy during
opening arguments. But, after the order was read in court yesterday, few of the
expected defense witnesses were called.
Instead, by early afternoon the defense appeared to jettison the remainder of its
case and rested after having called only seven witnesses. Yesterday was to be the
first full day of testimony for the defense.
There was no rebuttal from the prosecution. Closing arguments are scheduled
for today. McKinney could face the death penalty if convicted of murderinto
out what caused this airliner to
crash," Jim Hall, the NTSB chair,
declared. "We do not know at this
point what caused the crash."
The NTSB said it would work with
the FBI, the Coast Guard, the Federal
Aviation Administration and the State
Department, as well as Egyptian offi-
"Until we know exactly what hap-
pened, just about everybody will be
involved in the investigation," said an
FBI official in Washington. Agents will
examine evidence as it is taken from the
ocean to a military facility at Quonset,
R.I., where the NTSB will reassemble
Other FBI agents in New York, New
Jersey and Los Angeles were called in to
examine the flight manifest."We're try-
ing to determine who was or was not on
board," the FBI official said. A State
Department official said passengers on
the plane included citizens of Egypt,
Sudan, Syria, Chile and the United

hour, it took off again.

bla'me students for worrying about their
midterms," Diamond said.
gEngineer junior Brandon Blair shared
Diamond's sentiments. He said he is not a regis-
tered voter in Ann Arbor and usually limits his
voting to presidential elections. "In school, you're
jeally busy and don't think you'll make any differ-
e anyway," he said.
'Last year, the state Legislature passed a law --which

a citizen's address be the same on their voter registration

"'buncilmember Joe Upton (R-Ward II) said while
be is "not well-versed" in the law, it "makes sense."
"Unless they really consider this their home, I don't
tbik they should vote here," he said.
Other council members said they think the law is
detrimental, adding that the law forces students to
choose between a local residence and one from their
Council member Jean Carlberg (D-Ward III) said
the law unfairly targets students and "appears to dis-

ple vote, Carlberg said.
Diamond said the purpose of the bill is to eliminate
voter fraud, not hurt student voting. "Honestly, they
have demonized this bill," Diamond said.
While in the minority, sonic students plan to spend
time at the polling booths today. "I always vote
because only way we can have" an "impact on the way
communities are run," Social Work graduate student
Stephanie David said.
Diamond added that College Republicans are*
focusing their efforts on the upcoming federal and
state elections in 2000.

mative action," Diamond said. "They're not interested
While student participation in local issues may
be minimal, some councilmembers think city out-
reach can increase student interest. "I don't think
we have a good line of communication," Kolb said,
referring to the relationship between the University
Kolb said working with student groups to improve
"information presentation" may increase student's
awareness of city issues.
While student participation may be minimal, a few
University students have taken an active involvement
in local politics.

Goodman said student disinterest in city govern-
ment often originates with the belief that government
"can't solve student problems." Goodman said what
elected officials "can do is stop getting in the way and
causing student problems."
Giu lani on exhibit
NEW YORK - A federal judge
restored city funding yesterday to the
Brooklyn Museum of Art, ruling that
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani violated the
First Amendment in cutting off the
money because of an exhibit featuring
a dung-encrusted portrait of the Virgin
In issuing a preliminary injunction,
U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon said
the city's action against the museum
was "directly related, not just to the
content of the exhibit, but to the partic-
ular viewpoints expressed.
"There can be no greater showing of
a First Amendment violation," she said.
Floyd Abrams, a leading First
Amendment attorney who is represent-
ing the museum, said: "The ruling
shows that mayor's behavior was law-
The decision does not end the legal
Abrams said the museum will try to
end to the dispute once and for all by
obtaining a permanent injunction pro-
tecting funding. And city officials said
they will appeal.

McCain denies hot
WASHINGTON - Arizona Sen.
John McCain and his staff attempted
yesterday to shrug off a stinging attack
by a home-state newspaper that ques-
tioned whether McCain's "volcanic"
temper renders him unfit to be president.
In an editorial Sunday, the Arizon*
Republic, which has supported McCain
in his Senate campaigns, said he "often
insults people and flies off the handle,"
can be "sarcastic and condescending,'
and that there is "reason to seriously
question whether McCain has the tem-
perament, and the political approach
and skills, we want in the next president
of the United States."

The Institute also maintains that chil-
dren with ADHD frequently develop
depression, lack of self-esteem and
other emotional problems.
Medication such as Ritalin are often
used to treat the disorder. A 1995 report
from the Institute found that physicians
treating children and adolescents wrote 6
million prescriptions for drug stimulants
Ritalin, Dexedrine and Cylert that year.
Many students are diagnosed before col-
lege, but Goodin said he has seen stu-
dents who are first diagnosed in college.
Counseling and Psychological
Services provides screening for ADHD.
"We use several tests that give some
indications of the probability that a stu-
dent has ADHD," said Jim Whiteside, a
clinical psychologist. "Then, if neces-
sary, we will refer the student to a psy-
chiatrist at the hospital."
Dan Fischer, senior social worker in
psychiatry at University Hospitals, said
an individual's personal amndfaily his-
tory are usually evaluated during a two
to three hour long session with a med-
"It is important to recognize that a
person with ADHD presents symptoms
in all settings." Fischer said, adding that
half of his cases deal with ADHD. "The
symptoms must also deviate from nor-
mal age-based behaviors."
Fischer said the symptoms may per-
sist into adulthood. But he said that
adults are more capable of masking the
difficulties. "As children get older and
mature, they tend to find ways to better
manage the disorder," he said.
According to the National Institute of
Mental Health, ADHD tends to run in
families. Research from the Institute also
claims that the brains of children with
ADHD differ from those of children
without the disorder. The research notes a
link between the use of glucose in the
brain and a person's inability to pay con-

Burkhart, a manager at Wendy's.
Annas said that Butler, who is in his
early 20s and was a former Michigan
State University student and football
player, has a history of trouble with the
law. He had been previously jailed for
armed robbery and had been out of
prison for less than two years.
