honorary degree, three others are slated
to receive honorary degrees pending the
The other three are a philanthropist, a
businessman and an artist.
Commercial real estate entrepre-
neur Sam Zell, a University alum, will
receive an honorary Doctor of Laws
degree. Fortune magazine wrote that
Zell "controls more commercial real
estate than anyone else in the country."
Zell, who attended the University both
as an undergraduate and Law student,
for approval sometime next year, but
until then the exact number of rooms
and dates of construction are subject to
change. Although the University was
able to provide a picture of the build-
ing's general shape, external appear-
ance will not be designed until much
later in the process, said Diane Brown,
spokeswoman for University facilities
managed apartments in Ann Arbor
while he was a student.
Artist Elizabeth Catlett will receive
a Doctor of Fine Arts degree. Catlett is
an advocate for social issues, especially
civil rights. She uses her art to show the
living conditions of Mexicans. Her pro-
gressive views prompted the U.S. House
Committeee on Un-American Activities
to investigate her in the 1950s.
Former John Hopkins University
President William Richardson, now
president of the W.K. Kellogg Founda-
tion, a philanthropic organization based
in Battle Creek, will receive an honor-
ary Doctor of Laws degree.

several projects came under budget and one fell through,
the city was left with $93,000, which it would have to
use by Sept. 30, after which it would lose this portion
of a $673,000 grant it received in October 2003 from
the Department of Homeland Security through the state
One of the projects that was completed under budget
was the test of the local alert system, the blue screen
that interrupts all Comcast channels for 30 seconds on
the second Tuesday of every month, which cost the city
$3,500 rather than $6,000.
The project that fell through was a plan that would
have restricted access to the water treatment plant. Black-
well said the city couldn't come up with enough funds
from other sources to complete the project. When it fell
through, he said, the city freed $70,000 of its funds.
Blackwell acted quickly with this surplus of funds,
getting the spending due date extended to Oct. 30 and
gaining the City Council's approval for the mobile com-
mand center. He said one of the hardest things was find-
ing a unit that cost about $90,000.
"We needed to start small," Blackwell said. "A lot of
people laughed at me when I said I was trying to spend
about $90,000. In general, models cost between $150,000
Council member Leigh Greden (D-Ward 3) said
approval for funding the vehicle was an obvious deci-
"This was a no-brainer," Greden said. "We've seen
recently how important it is for government to prepare
for emergencies. This unit is a vital part of our emer-
gency preparedness strategy and will also serve other
departmental purposes, such as large events."
"Just don't go taking it off to the lake for the weekend,"
Mayor John Hieftje joked at the Sept. 19 meeting when
City Council approved the proposal for the unit.
Fortunately for city officials, the New Orleans Police
Department cancelled an order for a mobile command
center after the unit had been produced.
The command center was completed on August 27,
but two days later, Hurricane Katrina hit the area, and
New Orleans police cancelled the order.
The Mobile Command Center, built by The La Boit
Company, based in Columbus, Ohio, is constructed on
a Ford E-450 frame, one that is used in many R.V.'s and
ambulances. The company originally designed transpor-
tation caravans for horses, but in the wake of Sept. 11 has
found a profitable market for building mobile command
centers, paid for by Homeland Security grants, Blackwell
The city has just received $362,000 worth of grants
from the Department of Homeland Security for use in
projects for 2005.
