retary of State-elect. Terri Land on
"Everyone's having to look at their
departments and where they're being
efficient and where they can trim
back," said Eileen McNulty, spokes-
woman for Land's transition team.
"Terri doesn't want to make any cuts
that would relate to customer service."
The state Legislature will also con-
sist of numerous new members, many
of whom served there in previous
capacities or are related to present or
past officeholders. In the Senate, all
but 10 of the 38 members will be new
to that body.
Chosen to lead majority Republicans
in the Senate was Sen. Kenneth Sikke-
ma of suburban Grand Rapids, a former
minority leader in the House, and Sen.
Robert Emerson of Flint will serve as
the Democratic minority leader. Repub-
licans will have a 22-16 majority in the
Senate after losing one seat this month.
Among the new legislators are cur-
rent Kentwood Mayor and Sen.-elect
Bill Hardiman, who will be the first
black Republican serving in the Legis-
lature since the early 1930s.
"I don't know what the governor will
propose," he said. "But we are hopeful
that we will cooperate and come togeth-
er for the people of this state."
Republicans gained five seats in the
state House, bringing the party split
there to 62-48. They reelected Rep.
Rick Johnson of LeRoy for a second
term as speaker and Democrats in that
chamber chose Rep.-elect Dianne
Byrum, a current state senator from
Onondaga Township, as their leader.
The Legislature will also include
some familiar names. Among them:
Rep.-elect Virgil Smith (D-Detroit) is
the son of former Sen. Virgil C. Smith;
Rep.-elect Glenn Steil Jr. of Cascade
Township is following in the steps of his
father, a retiring senator; Reps.-elect
Frank Accavitti Jr. (D-Eastpointe) and
Daniel Acciavatti (R-Chesterfield Twp.)
are cousins; and former Rep. Michelle
McManus (R-Lake Leelanau) will suc-
ceed her father, Sen. George McManus
Jr. Former Rep. Alma Stallworth (D-
Detroit) is returning to the House for
one more term to succeed her son, term-
limited Rep. Keith Stallworth, and the
lieutenant governor-elect's sister, former
Rep. Deborah Cherry of Burton, will
take over his seat in the Senate.

that can rotate and lay flat on the keyboard to convert to the
tablet," Linden, an Engineering senior, said.
With the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition operating sys-
tem, which includes additional features like Windows Jour-
nal, Tablet PC allows users to replace keyboards with digital
pens as the input device, Linden said.
"Students can do things that they couldn't do on an old, reg-
ular keyboard-base laptop, such as drawings, graphics, scrib-
bles or diagrams," Linden said. "They can then collaborate and
send each other notes and share notes this way a lot easier."
Linden, who was given a Tablet PC by Microsoft, said the
advantages will most certainly be worth the extra cost.
"I don't think college students would buy it now, they
don't have that much money, unless mom and dad decide to
get this for them," Engineering senior Kristin Derwich said.
Engineering sophomore Andrew Maxeuy, who is current-
ly looking for a suitable computer, said he will not consider
the Tablet PC because with the current state of technology, it
is not cost effective.
"It's a little steep because the advantages I don't see are that
much greater, but as we become more advanced in the class-
room, I think that would be a little more worthwhile," Maxeuy
said. "We are still so concentrated in taking notes using paper
that we aren't entirely electronically dedicated yet."
"If this would completely integrate into the campus com-
puting environment, it could be remarkably useful," Busi-
ness Prof. Fred Feinberg said. "Everybody might have a
tablet in front of them, the professors would not have to hold
things up and put things in the PowerPoint slides. Every-
body could be interacting with their own version."
Feinberg said the potential of Tablet PC to change the
educational environment is enormous, but it's unlikely to
take place until the price decreases and every student has
one and interoperability is achieved.
At this early stage, the main market of the Tablet PC
remains in corporate America, Feinberg said. "They are
largely going after mobile professionals and people in meet-
ings who need to interact with and store more than just pure
text," he added.
Though it is too early to say if the Tablet PC will be a suc-
cess after several other companies attempt to produce simi-
lar products, buyers are there, Feinberg said.
"Gadget junkies and people at the upper end of the eco-
nomic spectrum are willing to pay a premium to be the first
ones on the block who have it," he said. "If you want to be
on the so-called bleeding edge, go ahead."
Otherwise, Feinberg said a little wait may be worthwhile
because improvements will be made in later versions of the
products with more variety and a lower price.

up. Prevailing winds put Spain's coast at a greater risk for
damage from the spill.
Spanish beaches were mired in oil and scores of animals
were covered in sludge. Fishing was prohibited, putting hun-
dreds out of work. The spill threatened some of the region's
richest fishing grounds.
Fuel oil, a heavy, viscous blend gathered from the bottom
of tanks at the end of the refining process, can be far more
toxic and difficult to clean up than crude oil, experts said.
"We hope that the sunken part does not spill its fuel. But
still it's a time bomb at the bottom of the sea," said Maria
Jose Caballero, who leads the coastal protection project for
Greenpeace in Spain.
The best hope for the environment is for the tanks to hold
in the chilly waters, said Unni Einemo, senior editor at
Bunkerworld, a London-based news service for the marine
"If it sinks into cold water, this stuff solidifies so much
that it basically stays there," she said.
The Prestige, owned by Mare Shipping Inc., of the
Bahamas, was bound for Singapore when the storm hit.
The American Bureau of Shipping, a Houston-based reg-
istration company that makes sure shipping papers are in
order, said the Prestige was up to date with its inspec-
The vessel, built in 1976, is operated by the Greece-based
Universe Maritime, Ltd. The ship's last annual survey was
carried out in Dubai in May, and a full drydock inspection
was carried out in China in May 2001, ABS said.

also a critical challenge, Gavin said.
Hospital officials said despite the
focus on recruitment, they are not
overlooking the nurse retention rate.
"We must also pay attention to
other aspects of the healthcare deliv-
ery system," Gavin said. "Retention
efforts are focused on the value and
respect of the nurses with regard to
their contribution to the well-being of
Gavin said one way UMHS is trying
to retain its current nurses is through
"Expanding on innovative strategies
within the system to actively accom-
modate the needs of the staff is an
important goal in increasing retention,"
UMHS has recently teamed with
Johnson and Johnson along with other
area hospitals and health care institu-
tions to establish a scholarship and
grant program to bring more people to
"It is important that we continue to
focus on improvement to build the
foundation of our community, of our
nation, on a strong health system,"
