tives hold their positions for one year.
MSA's most recent activity includes
work with Student Legal Services to
sponsor a town hall meeting to edu-
cate students on alcohol laws in Ann
Arbor and common house lease-
signing practices. The assembly also
encouraged City Council to postpone
discussion on a proposed ban on
upholstered porch furniture over the
Other projects include Airbus, a
program that offers students afford-
able rides to the airport during
Thanksgiving and winter breaks.

"Time is definitely a consideration,
this being a very important year for
our office," said Moon, who worked in
student affairs while in Los Angeles.
"I'm here, and I'm just going to put as
much time and effort as I can to help
this process along."
Middleton, African American coordi-
nator, will also try to achieve unity among
the various organizations. Middleton was
a graduate student in English at the Uni-
versity, but is taking a leave of absence
to work with MESA. Her last job in the
Dental School was to help students who
wanted to go into dentistry.
Middleton said she will work to
make sure different organizations
know about each othr's events. She
will also work to get small grants for
students who want to go to conferences
for their respective communities.

to add "20-inch spinning rims" to the
cart as well, to draw extra attention.
Benny Benhart and Bob Roberts,
owners of B&B hot dog stand, also
located on the corner of South Univer-
sity Avenue and South State Street, have
been selling dogs for nine months and
said they have been in the food service
business for many years. The business
partners said they hope to use the money
they raise to open a new restaurant in
Chelsea, Flat Out Delicious, which will
serve ice cream, hot dogs, gourmet
sandwiches and coffee.
Currently, with the many vendors in
close proximity, the competition is steep
and every vendor is looking for an extra
incentive. Dan's Dogs, for example, offers
a "buy five, get one free" punch card.
Dan Jofre said, "I use to sell hot dogs
for 50 cents each, and then once I got
regulars, I raised the price." In addition,
he says kind gestures and conversation
keep people coming back.
To differentiate themselves, B&B
offers the not-so-commonly sold veggie
dogs and what Benhart calls "the best
quality brats around." In addition, B&B
sells chili and cheese, Coney dogs and
two specialized mustards. After talking
to students, the vendor plans to add New
York-style hot dogs to the menu, which
include onions and mustard.

the two major
factors are usually prices and location.
"I usually go to the cheapest place," said
LSA junior Tiffani Commander.
Zhe Clampitt, an Ann Arbor resident,
said, "I go to whichever stand is closer
when I'm hungry."
Before deciding to open their stand,
the owners of B&B and Dan's Dogs
researched locations, taking into account
foot traffic, convenience of customers
and accessibility to the public, they said.
Next a permit is filed with the Ann Arbor
City Council, which ensures health con-

And despite the low prices the ven-

hot dog stands. But like every job, vend-

South University Avenue and South

relocates to the Kerrytown farmer's
market during the weekend. On
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights
they set up outside Necto on Liberty
"I used to manage at a bar and have
a lot of experience in the food service. I
saw an opportunity with kids drinking
and set up a hot dog stand outside the
bars," Benhart said.
Although Dan's Dogs and B&B are
located next to each other, they said
both receive good business.
"There is more than enough business
to go around here," said Benhart.
However, not all vendors have been
able to set up their. carts where they
wanted. Sebastian Escalada, owner of
Hot Dogs on the Run, has filed a law-
suit in the Washtenaw County Circuit
Court because he was denied a vend-
ing space on the high traffic intersec-
tion of on the corner of State Street
and North University Avenue. The
owner would not comment, as the case
is still in court.
But for those who are worried about
the loss of the vendor to the cold winter
months, the vendors plan to gut it out
through the long months.
