since ended. It didn't admit
women until 2000, the same
year its offices in the Michi-
gan Union were occupied for
37 days by the Students of
Color Coalition. The society
later cut ties with the Univer-
sity and vacated its space in
Any stigmas on campus
that may have existed con-
cerning Michigamua are long
gone, Abou-Chakra said.
The society has been
decried for its secrecy for
years. The society still will
not provide details of what
goes on at meetings, citing a
tradition of "humble service"
to the University.
Abou-Chakra says that
although the group engages
in community service and
hosted vigils for the passing
of Gerald Ford and Bo Schem-
bechler, its main function is to
bring together student leaders
from across campus.
"The value of this group
is to promote understanding
between student groups and to
see what we can do for the com-
munity in intangible and tangi-
ble ways,"Abou-Chakra said.
Yahkind and Abou-Chakra
emphasized that the Order of
Angell will act in accordance
with all University policies.
"We're putting ourselves
out there," Abou-Chakra said.
"This is who we are, this is
what we intend to do, and I
don't think we're leaving any

Under Granholm's propos-
al, consumers who buy new
vehicles would get a sales tax
break. Instead of havingto pay
sales tax on the entire price of
their new car, truck or sport
utility vehicle, they would
pay tax only on the net price
for the new vehicle minus the
cost of their trade-in.
The new sales tax on ser-
vices would be coupled with
a slightly altered administra-
tion plan to replace the Single
Business Tax, which ends later
this year. Republican lawmak-
ers have repeatedly said that
the state needs to lower the
taxes businesses pay to make
the state more competitive.
Under the Democratic
governor's plan, which would
take effect next January, busi-
nesses would see a net $450
million drop from the $1.9
billion annually they paid
through the SBT. The gover-
nor's proposal, which she first
submitted last November,
substantially drops tax rates
and cuts taxes on equipment
nearly in half
Large companies that keep
their headquarters in Michi-
gan would get a tax credit. But
all businesses also would pay
about $1 billion more through
the tax on services.
Only Hawaii and New
Mexico have broad-based
sales taxes that cover many
services, according to the Fed-
eration of Tax Administrators.
According to a survey the fed-
eration did in 2004, Delaware,
Washington, South Dakota
and West Virginia tax at least
100 services, while Michigan
at the time taxed 26.
Granholm during her State
of the State address Tuesday
night criticized those who say
the state's financial problems
can be fixed solely with tax
cuts and vowed to present a
mix of spending cuts, struc-
tural changes and tax increas-
es to balance the budget when
her administration yesterday
presents its proposal for the
next budget year.
She plans to propose a com-
bined $400 million in cuts
for this budget year and next,
partially by keeping fewer
inmates incarcerated, an offi-
The administration also
wants to raise the tax on ciga-
rettes by a nickel to $2.05 a
pack, increase liquor taxes
- but not those on beer - and
allow Michigan to still tax
estates of $250 million or
more, even though the federal
estate tax is being phased out.
Some tax exemptions for cer-
tain businesses also could be
on the chopping block.
said the new sales tax on
services would raise about
$1.5 billion a year and would
be split between the general
fund and the school aid fund.
Coupled with the replacement
for the Single Business Tax,
the tax changes would raise
about $3 billion annually.
The governor wants the
sales tax on services to take
effect by June 1 so it could.,
raise about $576 million that-
could be used to shore up-
the school aid fund and avertr
deep cuts to universities, localo
governments and state ser-'
vices that otherwise would be
needed to solve an $800 mil-
lion shortfall looming in this
With less money comin4
into the state school aid fund'
than expected, school die-a
tricts face seeing their state:
aid cut by around $220 per
pupil this school year.
Lawmakers would have
to pass new tax proposals by
March 30 if the new tax was to
take effect by June 1, an admin-
istration official said.
It was unclear if the Republi-
can-controlled Senate would go
along with that timetable, how-

For Thursday, Feb. 8, 2007
(March 21 to April 19)
Talk to a friend or a member of a
group who agrees with you about certain
ideals. This is the kind of day where you
can join forces with someone to make a
difference in the lives of others.
(April 20 to May 20)
You might want to help a parent or an
authority figure today. You feel very
sympathetic for what somebody else has
to go through or deal with at this time.
Do whatever you can,
(May 21 to June 20)
Your ideals are aroused today. If you
can do anything to help people who are
far away or in another country, do so.
You're also attracted to unusual philoso-
phies and esoteric knowledge.
(June 21 to July 22)
Make sure you defend your own best
interestsif you have to divide some
shared property today. Feelings of sym-
pathy for others could make you give
away the store.
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
If you rat help a partner or a close
friend today, yau will do ii. Similarly,
someone might want to help you. People
feel very sympathetic to each other'
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Perhaps a co-worker needs to confide
in you today, or perhaps vice versa.
Something has aroused your sympathy
related to your job or even your health.
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Love at first sight might happen for
some of you today. Romance is terribly
idealistic and sweet. Feelings of affec-
tion and sympathy can also be generated
for children right now.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
You're more sensitive tothe needs of a
family member today. You want to help
someone at home. It's very easy to put
the needs of others before your own
(Nov. 22to Dec. 21)
Be extra-careful in all your discus-
sions with others. Your antennas are way
out there; thus, you're receiving more
information than usual. This could cause
confusion. (No filters.)
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
You're tempted to spend money on
something extravagant today. That's
because you're motivated by your wants,
not your needs.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
You're very aware of everything
around you. You're highly stimulated
today because you're very in tune with
(Feb. 19to March 20)
You feel quite selfless today. You want
to help others who are less fortunate than
YOU BORN TODAY You have an
inquiring mind. You're intelligent, and
you love to explore whatever new things
you can possibly learn. Some of you
have psychic abilities; many of you have
specific technical skills. Because you
have a dramatic flair and an excellent
imagination, others love to listen to you.
The year ahead is full of exciting new
beginnings. Choose any road.
