Ypsi girls found safe with family in
Story of kidnapping, con-
nection to Longo murders was
HINTON, W.Va. (AP) - The mother of
two missing Michigan sisters found in West
Virginia was arraigned yesterday on two
counts of child concealment and contribut-
ing to the delinquency of a minor.
Teresa Lynn Claypoole, 48, of Hinton, was
being held in the Southern Regional Jail in
Beaver on $50,000 bond.
Claypoole was arrested Tuesday evening
after authorities tracked her daughters to
Summers County. The girls, 16-year-old
Elizabeth Haller and 13-year-old Kala
Haller, were taken into custody by Child Pro-
State Department of Health and Human
Resources officials did not immediately
return a telephone call yesterday.
The sisters disappeared from their
father's Ypsilanti home on Sept. 26. Kurt
Haller had legal custody of his daughters.
Authorities no longer believe the girls
have knowledge of accused killer Christian
Longo, who is charged with seven counts of
aggravated murder in Oregon, said Greg Ste-
jskal, a senior FBI agent in Ann Arbor,
Longo lived in Ypsilanti before he
moved with his family to Newport, Ore., in
September. Between Dec. 19 and Dec. 27,
the bodies of Longo's wife and three chil-
dren were found in coastal inlets in Ore-
At about the same time the Longos moved
to Newport, the Haller girls disappeared.
Longo, 28, was arrested in Mexico earlier
this month. He is charged with seven counts
of aggravated murder.
The girls told police they arranged with
their mother and stepfather to run away
from home. From Michigan, they traveled
to Gaston, S.C. On Jan. 20, they moved to
Hinton to live with a relative.
"They came back to Hinton where they
thought nobody was going to know anything
about it," said Hinton assistant police chief
Wills said he received a tip Monday from
a neighbor who knew the family and called
the father to report his daughters were in

Ann Arbor Public Schools decided
last night to cancel classes today.
Genesee, Lapeer, Sanilac, Shi-
awassee, Livingston, Macomb, Oak-
land, St. Clair, Lenawee, Monroe,
Washtenaw and Wayne counties were
under a winter storm warning through
this afternoon. Bay, Huron, Midland,
Saginaw and Tuscola counties were
under a snow advisory.
The northern part of the region
would see the greatest proportion of
snow, with the southern areas getting a
messy mix of snow, sleet and freezing
rain, forecasters said.
The precipitation was expected to
continue falling through tomorrow, but
not with the same fervor as last night's.
Barb Hogan, spokeswoman for
Detroit Metropolitan Airport, said only
a handful of flights had been delayed or
canceled because of the weather last
night. All runways were clear, and air-
port and airline officials were closely
monitoring the storm.

lightly-falling snow, students gathered
on the Diag for a candlelight vigil as
part of the week-long Hate Crime Sym-
posium to remember these victims and
many others who have suffered from
"In today's day and age it is unfortu-
nate that racial discrimination still con-
tinues. It is our intention to inform the
student body that it is these criminal acts
that are plaguing society'" said Business

al would allow such employees to buy insurance at the same
discounted rate as tuition.
University negotiators also offered to increase wages by 2
percent during each of the next three years. Picard said this
proposal is "offensive" because the percentage is below
what University economists say the rate of inflation will be
in those years.
"That amounts to a wage decrease for us" after being
adjusted for inflation, she said.
Another point of contention addressed in Tuesday's bar-
gaining was harassment protection. GEO wants language in
the contract to prevent work-place harassment of GSIs,
Picard said. She said the revision offered Tuesday by the
University was inadequate. "It doesn't specify what harass-
ment is," Picard said. "They want to set the bar for having to
do anything very high."
The University also proposed a program that would give
graduate students more choice in health benefits. But Picard
said there are still problems with the proposal, including the
lack of long-term disability insurance.
GEO made its own proposal Tuesday on the issue of
instructor training. The union wants four hours of mandato-
ry training for all GSIs. University negotiators gave no
answer, Picard said.
At the meeting yesterday, Picard and deLeon addressed
several other unresolved problems with the current situation.
Among them was what Picard said is an unfair system of
language tests that discriminates against foreign students.
The University tests English speaking skills of foreign cit-
izens but not of others, she said.
The vote held yesterday and today asks members to prior-
itize these and other issues to determine their importance in
negotiations, which will continue next Tuesday.

junior Kenan Mossa-Basha, a member
of the Muslim Students' Association
that helped organize the symposium.
Speakers addressed the unique nature
of hate crimes and why they differ from
other criminal acts.
"Hate crimes are not only crimes
against the individual, but against the
community as well," said second-year
Medical student Howard Liu, who
spoke on behalf of the Asian-American
community. "The violence targets your
faith, how you look, how you dress and
LSA junior Ed McDonald, who rep-
resented Honesty, Eagerness and Deter-
mination of Self, emphasized how hate
crimes and racially motivated acts have
penetrated many facets of U.S. society
- even its legal system.
"I'm a firm supporter of freedom
of speech, but I am not a supporter
of ignorance," McDonald said. "I
don't fear the KKK, I don't fear the
Nazi Aryan nation, I fear the
Organizers said this year's event is
especially significant because of the
growing racial tension in America as a
result of the Sept. 11 attacks.
"Certain portions of the student popu-
lation here and in America have been
more targeted this year than ever
before,' Mossa-Basha said.
Organizers hope that the vigil not
only increased students' awareness,
but also encouraged them to take
"People need to step up again and do
something pro-active," Liu said. "If you
change the mind of one person you may
very well save a life."
