Matthew
Kelley won LSA
Excellence in
Education Award
By DEVON THORSBY
Daily StaffReporter
Kendrick Kelley, a Sweet-
land Writing Center and Lloyd
Hall Scholars Program lecturer,
passed away yesterday afternoon
in Rackham
Hall.
Depart-
ment of Pub-
lip Safety
spokeswom-
an Diane
Brown said
Kelley, who KELLEY
went by Mat-
thew, col-
lapsed shortly after dismissing
a class of graduate students at
about 2:35 p.m. yesterday.
Medical officials attempted
to resuscitate Kelley, age 41, for
30 to 45 minutes, according to
Brown. Kelley was pronounced
dead at 3:15 p.m.
Brown said the cause of death
is currently unknown.
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said he did not know

anymore information asof 8 p.m.
last night.
A Business School sophomore
who wished to remain annony-
mous said he had Kelley as an
instructor in the Lloyd Hall
Scholars Program.
"Matt Kelly was a great pro-
fessor. He was always under-
standing, and if circumstances
came up, he'd never get mad at
anyone," the student said. "And
he really had a passion for the
stuff that he taught. I had him for
photo book class in LHSP, and he
would (spend) his own money;
he'd get from grants and stuff
in order to make the class more
interesting."
The student continued, "He
was truly someone that was
incredible, and definitely some-
one valuable to this University
and probably one of my favorite
teachers."
LSA junior Sarah Friedman
who was taught by Kelley her
freshman year said Kelley great-
ly influenced the way she writes
and feels he was able to help
many people in the academic
community.
"Everyone I knew spoke very
highly of him ... he's going to be
greatly missed," Friedman said.

Ann Arbor City Council members discuss a proposed medical marijuana ordinance at last night's meeting. The ordinance was not voted on last night but willIb
up for a vote at City Council's Feb. 21 meeting.

marijisuana ordinance

Council votes on
amendments to pot
legislation
By SUZANNE JACOBS
Daily Staff Reporter
The Ann Arbor City Council
continued its long and complex
process of attempting to estab-
lish local medical marijuana leg-
islation at its meeting last night.

The latest version of the city's
proposed medical marijuana
ordinance went before City
Council for a second first read-
ing yesterday. If passed, the
ordinance would abolish the
city's temporary moratorium
on medical marijuana dispen-
saries that was put in place last
August.
The ordinance originally
underwent a first reading at a
City Council meeting on Jan. 3.
At its next meeting, which will

be Feb. 21, the council should
do a second reading on the ordi-
nance and vote on it.
With little or no guidance
from state law on how to regu-
late medical marijuana dispen-
saries, cultivation facilities and
home occupations, municipali-
ties in various Michigan cities
have struggled to create legis-
lation dealing with the topic,
especially since the legislation
involves federally illegal activ-
ity.

During the public commen-
tary at the beginning of the City
Council meeting, medical mari-
juana advocate Rhory Gould
talked about his frustration
with the city's current moratori-
um since it has now lasted more
than 180 days but was supposed
to last 120 days. Gould said City
Councilhas spent too much time
working on the ordinance.
Ann Arbor Mayor John Hief-
tje said it is necessary to outline

Redesign to be
finished by
January 2012
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
University students and fac-
ulty may have been surprised

when they didn't see the typical
University gateway website on
their computer screens last Fri-
day night.
The website, umich.edu,
underwent an aesthetic lift last
week, something that the Univer-
sity's Marketing and Design team
had been working on since last
fall, according to David Lampe,
the University's vice president for

communications.
A thorough redesign of the
website - which had remained
unchanged since 2006 - is pro-
jected to be completed by January
2012, Lampe said.
"This is not a redesign, but a
quick refresh," he said. "If you
notice, the content and the struc-
ture is largely the same."
