DPS modifies trespass order.
against Assistant AG Shirvell

Reports say charge
against Rodriguez
dropped,'U'officials
refuse to comment
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
Though The Associated Press
is reporting that the NCAA will
releaseitsrulingonits investiga-
tion surrounding the Michigan
football program today, Univer-
sity officials couldn't confirm
that information regarding the
probe will be released today.
Several top University offi-
cials and spokespeople called by
The Michigan Daily last night
said they couldn't comment on
the rumor that the NCAA's rul-
ing would be released publicly
today or that the NCAA will
drop it's charge against Michi-
gan football coach Rich Rodri-
guez.
Rumors emerged when the
AP reported yesterday that "a
person with knowledge of the
NCAA's ruling" said the final
verdict from the NCAA would
be handed down today and that

University officials were "very
happy" with the final outcome.
The source told the AP later
in the day that the NCAA had
dropped its allegation against
Rodriguez.
Athletic Department spokes-
man Dave Ablauf declined to
comment on the reports in an
interview with the Daily last
night.
"We can't comment," Ablauf
said, explaining that the Ath-
letic Department needed to wait
for word from the NCAA before
providing any comment. "We're
on their timetable."
Asked whether anyone at the
University had received notice
of the final ruling, Ablauf said he
couldn't comment on that either.
"I can't comment on any of
that," Ablpuf told the Daily.
"Until the NCAA releases some-
thing, we can't comment on any-
thing."
However, Ablauf said the
University would receive some
sort of prior notice to the final
ruling being released, but that
he wasn't sure how much notice
was customary in the process.

Shirvell allowed
on campus, banned
from events MSA
president attends
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
The University's Department
of Public Safety modified its
trespass order against Andrew

Shirvell, a Michigan assistant
attorney general, yesterday.
DPS spokeswoman Diane
Brown said in an interview yes-
terday that effective immediately
modifications had been made to
the trespass warning issued to
Shirvell on Sept.14. And while the
modifications give Shirvell access
to campus in most situations, his
attorney said he's not ruling out
further action against DPS or the
University.
Shirvell is now allowed to be

anywhere on the University's Ann
Arbor campus, though he is pro-
hibited from attending events at
which Michigan Student Assem-
bly President Chris Armstrong
would likely be in attendance and
must leave events if he sees that
Armstrong is present.
"Mr. Shirvell will be granted
access to the U of M campus,
except he is to have no physi-
cal or verbal contact with Chris
Armstrong," Brown said yester-
day morning. "He's also not sup-

posed to be in the same place on
campus where he can reasonably
anticipate that Mr. Armstrong
will be present."
When asked what a reason-
able anticipation of Armstrong's
presence was, Brown explained
one example with regard to Arm-
strong's involvement in MSA.
"I would think a reasonable
person would believe that Chris
probably would be present at MSA
events, so therefore Mr. Shirvell

7-Eleven to open on State St.

Youth turn out in fewer
numbers for midterms

Slurpee spot to
be open 24hours,
include study space
By BRIENNE PRUSAK
Daily StaffReporter
Students looking for a Slurpee
fix will soon need not look further
than across the Diag to South State
Street, where a 7-Eleven is slated to
open soon.
By the end of the year, 7-Eleven
Will open its near-campus location
at 318 South State St. - the build-
ing previously occupied by Ritz
Canera.
Soon after Ritz Camera declared

bankruptcy in 2009, its former
property went on the market and
was purchased by local ophthal-
mologist Reza Rahmani, accord-
ing to the building's realtor Jim
Chaconas. Chaconas said the
building was then rented out to
7-Eleven after the company began
to show interest in the location five
months ago.
Chris Benne, a real estate man-
ager for 7-Eleven, said the store is
in the perfect location because it is
across from the Diag and can serve
the needs of a student on the go.
"(The State Street location) is in
the heart of the retail district and
serves the college campus," Benne
said.
Benne added that the 7-Eleven

will be open 24 hours a day all
week in order to accommodate stu-
dents' needs.
"We are there to support the
morning, afternoon and evening
schedules associated with student
life," he said.
Margaret Chabris, the media
director for the company, said the
first floor of the two-story building
will be a traditional 7-Eleven and
sell products like chips, soda and
the company's famous Slurpees.
Chabris added that the second
floor will be a less traditional con-
venience store that will feature a
study space and sell retail items
and coffee.
Chaconas said that because

Beta to return to campus with
new philosophy, renovated house

Both locally and
nationally, student
vote plummets
from 2008
By BETHANY BIRON
Daily StaffReporter
Tuesday's midterm election
yielded not only a decline in the
number of Democratic seats in
both the United States Senate and
House of Representatives, but
also a decrease in the percentage
of youth votertturnout in compar-
ison to both the last presidential
election and the 2006 midterm
election.
According to statistics released
by the Center for Information
and Research on Civic Learning
and Engagement, approximately
20 percent of U.S. citizens under
the age of 30 voted on Tuesday,
down from nearly 55 percent in
the presidential election in 2008
and 23 percent in the 2008 presi-
dential election.
Locally, voters in 14 student-
heavy districts in Ann Arbor also
turned out in much lower num-
bers than the 2008 presidential
election. Only 21 percent of vot-
ers in the student-heavy districts
turned out in 2010 - represent-
ing 5,661 voters of the 26,598 that
were registered. In 2008, 45 per-
cent of voters turned out -15,483

Fraternity kicked off
campus in 2007
aims to recruit
campus leaders
By VERONICA MENALDI
Daily StaffReporter
Beta Theta Pi fraternity - one of
the first fraternity houses on cam-
pus was removed from campus in

2007 - is making a comeback to the
University and the Interfraternity
Council, after being dormant for
three years, with a new philosophy
and a renovated house.
Fraternity houses stereotypically
invoke images of beer kegs, blast-
ing music, messy houses and over-
all "frat boys" disconnected from
the non-Greek letter community,
but Director of Reestablishment
Phil Fernandez, a Beta alum from
Miami, Ohio said he hopes Beta's
return will help to change this per-

ception.
Last night in the Michigan
League, men interested in the fra-
ternity, sorority members and Beta
advisors gathered to hear a presen-
tation on the fraternity. Members of
the organization will move into the
house this fall.
Fernandez, who was hired by the
Beta Alumni Association, said the
goal of the event was to introduce
the fraternity to the campus com-
munity.
