DRINKING
Continued from Page 1A
Lawmakers later removed this provi-
sion before sending the bill to
Granholm, because under Canadian
law underage drinkers from the U.S
are allowed to consume alcohol in
some provinces.
Sofia said if minors returning from
the border after drinking receive an
MIP, they have an opportunity for
"affirmative defense" in which they
must prove in court that the alcohol
was legally consumed in Canada.
Before Granholm signed the bill,
there was opposition to it in the state
Senate. About a third of senators
voted against the penalties, but it
passed with a vote of 24 to 13 on
March 31. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor)
was among those against the bill,
arguing that prisons were not the
appropriate setting for minors.
"I definitely think we should work
to curb underage drinking, but I don't
think this is the way to go about it,"
Brater said in an earlier interview
regarding the legislation.
LSA junior Lucas LaKvoi said he
thinks the threat of jail time will not
curb underage drinking. "It'll just
make (underage drinkers) more care-
ful about being caught," he said.
Department of Public Safety spokes-
woman Diane Brown said in an e-
mail that DPS will continue to
enforce state laws and University
ordinances as it always does.
The new law was approved by the
House of Representatives 78 to 28 in
late March.

City residents have donated more to Bush than to Kerry

DONATIONS
Continued from Page 1A
tributes to the difference in donation amounts.
"(Ann Arbor) is a highly desirable area to live
in, so you have a lot of very wealthy people who
live here - many of whom are politically active
- and I think that manifests itself in the contri-
bution records. Republicans donate more money,"
Deitch said.
Some notable business owners and executives
who live in Ann Arbor and fund Bush's campaign
include Gerard Anderson, president and chief
operating officer of Detroit Edison Energy, who
donated $2,000 to Bush, and William Boddie,
vice president of Ford Motor, who also gave

$2,000 to Bush.
Many University administrators also donate
frequently to political campaigns, including the
regents. The following numbers reflect donations
made by the regents to a presidential candidate,
national or state party committees for the 2004
election cycle:
- Kenneth Coleman, husband of University
President Mary Sue Coleman, donated $1,500
to Dean.
- Regent Olivia Maynard (D-Goodrich) donat-
ed $200 to Dean, and has given $250 to Kerry.
- Regent David Brandon (R-Ann Arbor) con-
tributed $365 to the Republican State Committee
of Michigan. Deitch donated $1,000 to Sen. Joe
Lieberman (D-Conn.).

- Regent Andrea Fischer Newman (R-Ann
Arbor) gave $2,000 to Bush.
- Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann Arbor)
contributed to a presidential campaign or national
committee according to the records available.
- Regent Andrew Richner (R-Grosse Pointe
Park) donated $2,000 to Bush.
- Regent Martin Taylor (D-Grosse Point
Farms) gave $1,000 to Bush.
- Regent Katherine White (D-Ann Arbor)
contributed $400 to Wesley Clark.
Maynard said she still plans on giving more
money to Kerry in the near future.
"I think it is important for everyone to partici-
pate in a democracy, and part of that is donating
money," Maynard said.

IRAQ

withdraw from all Iraqi cities. An Iran-
ian envoy was also getting involved in
the mediation with al-Sadr, an aide to
the cleric said.
Still, al-Sadr militiamen appeared
to be preparing for a fight, moving
into buildings and onto rooftops on
Najaf's outskirts, said Col. Dana
Pittard, head of the 2,500 U.S. troops
amassed outside the city, ready to
move in against al-Sadr.
"Najaf is a holy place," said Kaysal
Hazali, spokesman for al-Sadr. "If
they attack it, God knows the results:
It is not going to be good for the
occupation."
The U.N. envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi,
said respected Iraqis should lead a
caretaker government - with a
prime minister, president and two
vice presidents to run the country
after the handover of power by the

wants also bargaining to progress fur-
ther.
"We all agreed that we wanted nego-
tiations to end soon," Courant said.
"It's time for the teams to get going on
negotiations ... and an agreement to be
made."
Three classes were also held outside
the building on the Regents' Plaza dur-
ing the work-in. English Lecturer
Hilary Thompson said her students
have expressed concern over the labor
negotiations and that they voted to hold
class outside yesterday.
Thompson said she held class on the
plaza "to give a gentle reminder to the
University that lecturers and students
want the contract bargaining resolved
in a fair and timely manner."

Deitch said he feels that donating money is
part of what it means to be a good citizen.
"Contributing money is an important way to
advance principles and people you believe in, and
it's something that I've been doing since I was a
student, and will continue to do until I die,"
Deitch said.
Although Deitch gave to Lieberman, he said he
will donate to Kerry now that Lieberman has
dropped out of the race.

that he ran for regent as a Democrat, would not

PETITION
Continued from Page 1A
said Glenn, referring to the procedure
in which a fetus is partially pulled out
of its mother's womb and terminated.
"People's response so far has been
overwhelming and broad and many peo-
ple not involved in the partial-birth abor-
tion drive are now involved," Glenn
added.
The federal government banned par-
tial-birth abortions last November, but
Gov. Jennifer Granholm vetoed a simi-
lar ban passed in Michigan.

Petitioners collected 325,000 signa-
tures in less than two months by means
of a community-based campaign, lob-
bying to put the abortion ban into effect.
Referring to the marriage petition,
Wenke said, "I expect churches to be
very active in petitioning, and that's a
good way to get petitions circulating.
"I don't think (the Legislature) is
planning another vote, I think they're
probably just looking at the (petition)
initiative. Either way, they're not talk-
ing to us."
Wenke added that many members
of the Legislature would have sup-

ported allowing civil unions rather
than limiting marriage to "one man
and one woman" and was unsure why
a provision for civil unions was not
added to the proposed amendment.
The petition banning same-sex mar-
riages joins a number of petition-sup-
ported resolutions gathering signatures
for the July 6 deadline.
These include legalizing marijuana,
banning the death penalty and the
Michigan Civil Rights Initiative to ban
race, gender and legacy preferences in
public hiring, contracting, and univer-
sity admissions.
