Shots fired in Bank

at Eisenhower and

By NICOLE ABER
Daily News Editor
Two suspects, who fired gun-
shots during an armed robbery
at Bank of America's Eisenhower
branch at the
intersection First seen on
of Eisenhow-
er Parkway --he wire
and Packard
Street yesterday morning, are still
at large, Ann Arbor police con-
firmed as of publication at 2:15 a.m.
this morning.
The armed robbery occurred at
about 10:15 a.m. yesterday morn-
ing. The two suspects arrived in a
stolen vehicle that was taken ear-
lier yesterday morning from Pitts-
field, Mich., Sgt. Craig Flocken of
the Ann Arbor Police Department
said last night.
"We're still investigating,"
Flocken said. "They're still out."
According to Flocken, "an unde-
termined amount of cash was
obtained."
After the robbery, the suspects
fled on foot from the bank, which

Former president
will speak at
event in Rackham
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN
Daily StaffReporter
Former President Bill Clinton
will be comingto campus on Sun-
day to speak at a rally in support of
U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich),
who is running for re-election on
Nov. 2.
The rally, called "Get Out the

Vote," will be held at 2 p.m. .at
Rackham Auditorium, according
to a press release issued by Ding-
ell's campaign last night.
Betsy Barrett, communications
director for Dingell's campaign,
wrote in an e-mail interview last
night that campaign officials
chose to host the rally at the Uni-
versity because of its politically
active atmosphere.
"U of M is a great institution
with an energetic student body
and a first-rate faculty and staff,"
Barrett wrote. "It is also a fun
place to hold a rally."

Barrett added that Sunday's
event will be one in a long his-
tory of Dingell campaigning with
national political figures.
"Barack Obama, Bill Clinton,
Ted Kennedy, and many others
have campaigned with Congress-
man Dingell in Michigan," Bar-
rett wrote.
Interview requests to Clinton's
communications staff went unan-
swered last night.
Though the 84-year-old Ding-
ell is the longest-serving member
in the U.S. House of Representa-
tives - having held his seat since

1955 - his re-election campaign
hasn't been entirely smooth sail-
ing.
An Oct. 4 poll conducted by the
Rossman Group, which identifies
as nonpartisan, showed Dingell's
opponent, Rob Steele, the Repub-
lican candidate and an Ann Arbor
cardiologist, leading Dingell by a
43.8-percent to 39.5-percent mar-
gin.
But in an e-mail interview
last week, Barrett wrote that the
Rossman Group has ties to the
Republican Party.

The newly-inhabited North
Campus Research Complex may

bring more than just additional
lab space and innovative research
to Ann Arbor throughout the next
few months.
The 28-building complex on
Huron Parkway on North Campus
is slated to reach full occupancy
in March 2012 and is expected to
bring more than 1,000 employees,
five private companies and the
University's largest collection of

research groups to the area. Uni-
versity officials and business own-
ers are hopeful that the increase
in daytime residency and job
opportunities may bring needed
economic growth to the Plymouth
Road area, where business profits
have declined since Pfizer Inc. left
in 2008.

Spike in food carts
due to quick return
on small investment,
cart owners say
By BRIENNE PRUSAK
Daily StaffReporter
Students looking to pick up a
quick bite on their way to class
can now choose from a variety of
options ranging from hot dogs to
crepes thanks to a fast-growing
array of food carts occupying Ann
Arbor sidewalks.
According to owners distribut-
ing the food on and around cam-
pus, the carts are sproutingup all
over the city in large part because

of the low overhead cost involved
in running them. And though
snowy Michigan winters may
seem like an obstacle for the food
cart industry, owners say they
plan to weather the cold.
The City of Ann Arbor requires
food carts to have an application
approved by the Police Depart-
ment, complete with a sidewalk
occupancy application, photo
of the cart, Health Department
certificate and proof of liability
insurance.
Sebastian Estalada, who owns
Hot Dogs on the Run - a cart sta-
tioned at the edge of the Diag on
SouthUniversityAvenue-saidthe
business requires a small invest-
ment, but provides a quick return.
Estalada has had food carts in
Ann Arbor for 11 years. This year

he has one cart, but he said he
plans to expand to four carts next
year.
His food cart, which sells hot
dogs, sausages and kielbasas, is
out every weekday from 9 a.m.to
4 p.m. In the winter, the business
sells hot items like coffee, Esta-
lada said.
Jake Waldecker, owner of
Smokey Jake's BBQ - which is
located in front of the Union -
said the hours and flexibility of
owning his own business are per-
fect for him because it gives him
a chance to work only while his
daughter is in school.
Smokey Jake's BBQ has been
in business for about a month,
and Waldecker said he plans to
