"I guess they'll continue on to the bitterest of
ends, but in the end - in the final analysis - I'm going
to win. There's just no way around the Constitution."

- ANDREW SHIRVELL, former Michigan assistant attorney gen-
eral, on state officials appealing to reconsider his unemployment ben-
efits after their initial motion was denied
"It's disappointing. I thought their team came out and
played with a lot more enthusiasm. They out-skated us,
they out-hustled us and obviously outscored us."
- RED BERENSON, Michigan hockey team coach, on the Wolver-
ine's 5-3 loss to the United States National Team Development Pro-
gram consisting ofplayers under age 18
"I want (the fans) to remember whatever they
want to remember. The ups and downs."

ence after the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.

Inp

t a new year and a fresh season for
news. What's ahead for the campus and
Ann Arbor community? Here's what
headlines you should look out for in 2013.
Around Ann Arbor
Students may have more options when
doing basic shopping later this year as Wal-
greens plans to open a store in the former
OtMichigan Book & Supplies building on the
corner of South State and South University
Streets. While a convenient location, stu-
dents have voiced concerns about having
a CVS Pharmacy, 7-Eleven and now Wal-
greens - all national chains - within a one-
block radius.
Several high-end apartment buildings
in downtown Ann Arbor will join Zaragon
and Landmark. The Varsity, located on East
Washington will cater to students and open
in June. Meanwhile, Blimpy Burger is still
looking for a new home after the University
announced plans to purchase the property.
City Council
Internal fluxes in the Ann Arbor City
Council mean changes for the city. The
council added three new members, includ-
ing Chuck Warpehoski (D-Ward 5), Sally
Hart Petersen (D-Ward 2) and Sumi Kailasa-
pathy (D-Ward 1). Additionally, veteran City

Council members Margie Teall (D-Ward
4) and Christopher Taylor (D-Ward 3) and
Mayor John Hieftje were re-elected to
their seats this term. Council members will
likely address the county's participation in
the Southwest Regional Transit Author-
ity signed into law by Republican Gov. Rick
Snyder in December. After the City Coun-
cil opted out of the Washtenaw Ride in
November, the city will likely dismiss fur-
ther attempts from the state to form a cross-
county transportation network.
Absent from the city this year are public
art installations. This is a change from pre-
vious years in which public art projects have
been organized and displayed at locations
around the city, including near the Ann
Arbor Public Library, in West Park and in
front of the City Hall. After voters decided
against a proposal for a public arts tax -
which would create a new program making
it easier to show off temporary pieces of art
- the council voted to dismantle the cur-
rent program, Percent for Art. The ongoing
public art projects, which may be the last,
include a hanging sculpture in the lobby of
the Justice Center and a rain garden project,
which will be placed at an abandoned prop-
erty on W. Kingsley Street in July or August.
Ann Arbor will have also more wiggle
room, with a $1.3 million surplus expected
in the 2013 budget, according to city offi-
cials. However, City Council members noted
that the city expects higher expenditures in
the future years and the money will likely be

reserved to offset the loss.
University Affairs
The LSA theme for the winter term is
"Race," which was proposed by the Exhibit
Museum of Natural History. This theme
semester centers on the traveling exhibition
at the museum, "Race: Are We So Differ-
ent?" which was organized by the American
Anthropological Associationin partnership
with the Science Museum of Minnesota.
The theme spans several interdisciplinary
courses, from African American Studies to
dance.
The MCubed research program will
continue to announce grant winners in the
upcoming months, putting into motion the
University-funded programs. The grants are
part of a $15-million University initiative to
encourage multi-disciplinary research. The
Twitter account of the University's Office
of the Vice President for Research will ran-
domly post 50 accepted projects at a time.
The Law School reports that most of the
second phase of construction on Hutchins
Hall and the Legal Research Building is
complete, which means that many faculty
members will be able to return to their
offices soon..
In the later part of 2013, East Quad Resi-
dence Hall will open its doors after inten-
sive renovations for the 2013 Fall term,
while South Quad Residence Hall will close

for renovations. The nine-floor dorm will
be adding utilities and improvements to
the cafeteria and first floor. The absence of
South Quad rooms will impact University
Housing options for students.
Administration
In late November, Dartmouth College
announced that University Provost Philip
Hanlon would become their 18th presi-
dent, a serious shake-up for the adminis-
tration. For the University, 2013 brings the
appointment of four new deans in the first
quarter of the year. A search committee
will be created to look for a new president
of the University as Mary Sue Coleman's
contract expires in June 2014. The Univer-
sity's Board' of Regents has also scheduled
the consideration and approval of tuition
increases, which may happen in June.
The Coalition for Tuition Equality -
a student group dedicated to improving
tuition policies for undocumented students
- will also announce the results of talks
with University administration in February.
The group, which protested at the Regents
meeting on Dec. 12, is asking the adminis-
tration to provide equal access to education
by granting in-state tuition to many undoc-
umented students from Michigan. Univer-
sity Spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald said the
regents expect to receive a report on tuition
equality from the group in January.

Bowl, but we did

of completely

as a means of
retribution. The

would've
tasted better.
