House violates Ann Arbor city law NEWS IN BRIEF..

man's friend, fraternity brother and University alum
He said that Goodman was in no way a frequent user
of the drug and his death was somewhat of a freak
accident. "I've been in close contact with him (in the
last six months)," he said. "Dustin lived a positive life.
He was not a heroin user. He just sort of must have
come across it."
The alum said the state of the fraternity house was
only recognized after the death, but it has been degrad-
ing for some time. He added that the house, built in
1901, has continuing problems with maintenance. The
options were to tear down the house and rebuild it or
continually fix it. "You have a house that is old, made
out of wood - after that long it just gets eroded.... It's
no worse than any other fraternity on campus."
According to a letter posted on the front door signed
by Ann Arbor City Building Inspector Nancy Sylvester
and Ann Arbor Building Department Director Larry
Pickel, the house was closed for violating city law. The
building was closed for not having adequate exits,

was spotted outside the building and a light was visible
from a room on the top floor.
Any violations of the letter are punishable by a fine
of up to $500 and 90 days imprisonment.
The alum said Goodman was a mentor and a fixture
around the fraternity house although he lived with his
parents in their Ann Arbor home.
"As far as the active brotherhood goes - on a scale
of one to 10 - it's a 10 as far as how deeply it hurts to
have this loss," the alum said. "There are freshman and
sophomores who love him and who are going to miss
him. ... He worked across the street (at Jimmy's
Sergeant Peppers) and would visit all the time. He was
very present on a daily basis."
The alum, who is currently working at a law firm in
Manhattan and flew in for Goodman's funeral, said he
would like to continue Goodman's dream of opening a
ty and was likeable and hardworking.
"A lot of people would agree that he single-handedly
built people's business up by himself. It came very easy
for him to make people feel at home," the alum said.
"He worked 20-hour shifts back to back. They would
tell you he was responsible for increasing the revenues
of people's businesses."
He and Goodman were pursuing the purchase of a
grocery store that could compete with area businesses
in both the area of customer satisfaction and prices.
They met in 1997 and became friends at the fraternity,
mainly because of their mutual interests.
Goodman gained experience for about four years
working at Sergeant Peppers and had worked at In and
Out on Church Street previously. Goodman is survived
by his parents, a younger brother and two sisters.
The alum said following the funeral about two
weeks ago, he has discussed Goodman's dream of
opening of a store with Goodman's brother. "I'm
considering working what with what opportunity
there is to see it through - have him enjoy it from

attention from bystanders and down-

Israel's Supreme Court told the army yesterday that it must give the Palestinians
the bodies of those killed in Jenin's refugee camp, a move that could help clear up
the escalating dispute over how many Palestinians died in the fierce fighting.
Also, the army gave journalists a limited tour of the devastated camp and rejected
Palestinian claims that hundreds of people, many of them civilians, were killed. The
army said it has found fewer than 40 bodies after searching half of the camp, and
most of those corpses belong to Palestinian gunmen.
The court also ordered the army to include workers from the Red Cross in teams
searching for the bodies following more than a week of battles in the camp, the site
of the heaviest combat since Israeli troops launched a West Bank offensive March 29
to track militants responsible for attacks on its civilians.
The decision came as Secretary of State Colin Powell held more than three hours
of talks with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat as part of his search for a cease-fire
agreement to end the fighting.
Traveling with extremely heavy security, Powell met Arafat at the Palestinian
leader's badly damaged compound in the West Bank town of Ramallah, and said
afterward the talks were "useful and constructive" but reported no progress toward a
Former Afghan king hopes to restore peace
When Mohammad Zaher Shah left Afghanistan three decades ago, his country
was poor and forgotten but at peace. Now it's still poor, a center of world attention
and torn apart by war.
Afghans from all walks of life are praying that the 87-year-old deposed
monarch, expected to return this week, can help heal their nation's wounds.
Abdul Basir arrived in the Afghan capital of Kabul yesterday from a refugee
camp in neighboring Pakistan. He said his family decided.to return to Afghanistan
when word spread in the camp: "Zaher Shah is coming."
"If he is coming back, then Afghanistan must be close to peace. We came home
because he is coming home," Basir said, his wife, two children and all his belong-
ings piled into a bus.
Like most Afghans, 30-year-old Basir has no memory of life under the king.
But he said his father and grandfathers spoke adoringly of the deposed monarch,
whose 40-year rule marked Afghanistan's last period of peace.
The chief spokesman for interim Prime Minister Hamid Karzai said yesterday
that his boss would travel to Rome tomorrow to fetch the king.

A sniper shot and killed a rural coun-

political rally while seeking his fifth
term. A man who left the rally on a
motorcycle was charged with the slay-
ing yesterday morning.
Sheriff Sam Catron, whose police chief
father was shot and killed on duty 38
years ago, was shot in the face Saturday
night at the combination political rally,
fish fry and fire department fund-raiser.
"The senseless murder or assassination
of our sheriff, who always had a smile on
his face and dedication in his heart, is
devastating to the community," former
county attorney Fred Neikirk said.
