Ad landlords pick up the tab. Amy
K ahn, manager of CMB Property
M1nagement, said her company
began preparing its more than 20
ldeations near campus for the ener-
gy increase this summer by sealing
apartments and checking furnace
efficiency. Anxious to minimize
hlh costs, CMB also installed
programmable thermostats in most
of its houses.
But that doesn't mean students
will escape extra fees - some
landlords have issued notices to
residents indicating next year's
rent increase will include dollars to
cover this year's heat bills.
With all this money going
toward energy, some consumers
have blamed utility companies,
accusing natural gas suppliers of
pocketing profits while the public

Perhaps in preparation for the
biggest game of the year, the
Michigan offense showcased
its talent and versatility on Sat-
urday against a clearly inferior
Indiana squad. Michigan has
run a few trick plays this year
- freshman wideout Antonio
Bass had lined up at quarterback
with Henne out wide - but the
Wolverines opened a Pandora's
Box this weekend.

"We as a natural gas utility don't
make any additional profit when
the price of gas goes up. We sell
the gas to customers at exactly the
price we pay for it," he said.
Singer said that utilities normal-
ly purchase and store large quan-
tities of natural gas at relatively
low prices during the summer to
keep costs under control during
high-usage winter months. But this
year's volatile gas market and dev-
astating hurricanes have limited
that effort, resulting in the current

"I would say just keep it simple,"
he said. "Just go out with our game-
plan and try to execute as well as
possible. Ohio State has a great
defense, and they're very well-
"They have a lot of speed, so we
just have to execute and get the ball
up in the right places."
Whether Carr decides to go
simple or complex will remain a
mystery until Saturday, and until
then it'll be just a week full of
questions and speculation.

Elizabeth Campbell, a University alum
and former producer of the monologues,
added that while the script is not inherent-
ly racist, prejudices against minorities are
woven into the monologues.
"When Eve started writing, I don't think
she realized how big (the monologues)
would get and that (they) could and would be
used to affect such a large range of people,"
Campbell said. "But this is more than an
ordinary play -it is a political movement."
Campbell added that it is the responsibil-
ity of any person who undertakes this show
to confront the flaws of the script and change
or address them in some way.
However, this view is not shared by the
national V-Day organization. Producers of
the campus show said V-Day College Cam-
paign director Shael Norris, who couldn't be
reached for comment, has asked the directors
and producers to reconsider their decision to
develop an all-minority cast. The national
organization states that participation in the
show is open to all, regardless of race.
Norris and the organization have yet
to consider the justifications of the deci-
sion, said Kelly Sheard and Jillian Stein-
hauer, the two on-campus producers.
This weekend, the directors and pro-
ducers will hold an open casting call for
the 2006 performance. Although there is
intent to prefer women of color, they said
roles will be cast based on talent.

Warner said that while there is merit in
creating a show from the perspective of
women of color because it is a perspective
not often offered, it is only a part of what
the Vagina Monologues are all about.
Campbell, a former producer, said that
the alienation of a segment of the popula-
tion is a difficult reality to face, but it is
an issue the show deals with every year.
If the Vagina Monologues are to con-
tinue to be progressive and enlightening,
Campbell said, changing the perspective
of the show is an important and neces-
"For the white women who want to be
involved, if I was in their position I would
feel somewhat cheated," Campbell said.
"But I hope that they can understand that

Molly Raynor, co-director of the show,
said, "We never expected the campus
community to welcome this decision
with open arms."
"Having debate over these issue is
good, and we welcome challenges from
people. But we also challenge them to
think what was wrong in the past."
