$1.2 million in federal grants to
strengthen anti-drug and crime-
fighting efforts.
The funding was announced
Tuesday by Gov. Rick Snyder
and the Michigan State Police.
The grants come from American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act
of 2009 Edward Byrne Memorial
Justice Assistance Grant Pro-
gram and are focused on tech-
nology enhancements.
Agencies receiving funding
have until July 31 to spend the
money. A list of awards is posted

Chrysler recalling
247,000 cars,
citing many issues
Chrysler Group LLC is recall-
ing more than 247,000 SUVs
and cars for several problems,
including faulty gas tank hoses,
broken drive shafts and air bag
warning lights that illuminate
when there's no problem.
The largest of the recalls,
posted Tuesday on the U.S.
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration website, cov-
ers about 139,000 Chrysler 300,
Dodge Charger and Dodge Chal-
lenger sedans from the 2011 and
2012 model years. The automak-
er says that faulty wiring can
cause the air bag warning lights
to illuminate.
Cars made from April 11, 2011
to Dec. 14, 2011 are included.
Chrysler says it will fix the vehi-
cles for free and will start noti-
fying owners about the problem
this month.
NORFOLK, Va.
U.S. air force to
ground third of
combat planes
The U.S. Air Force plans
to ground about a third of its
active-duty force of combat
planes and a top general warned
Tuesday that the branch might
not be able to respond immedi-
ately to every event when need-
ed.
The Air Force didn't immedi-
ately release a list of the specific
units and bases that would be
affected on Tuesday, but it said
it would cover some fighters,
bombers and airborne warning
and control aircraft in the U.S.,
Europe and the Pacific.
Gen. Mike Hostage, com-
mander of Air Combat Command
at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in
Virginia, said the branch would

focus its budget and resources on
units supporting major missions,
like the war in Afghanistan,
while other units stand down on
a rotating basis.
SEUOL, South Korea
South Korea holds
North responsible
for cyberattack
South Korea says an initial
investigation has found that
North Korean government
agents were behind a March
cyberattack that shut down
about 32,000 computers and
servers at South Korean broad-
casters and banks.
An official at South Korea's
internet security agency, Chun
Kil-soo, told reporters Wednes-
day that the attack was similar
to past North Korean hacking.
He said investigators believe
that six computers in North
Korea were used to access South
Korean servers using more than
1,000 IP addresses overseas.

TEAM
From Page1A
Michigan basketball back on the
map," freshman forward Glenn
Robinson III said, acknowledg-
ing a goal accomplished with
this season.
The comments highlighted
successes, not failures.
"Unfortunately we didn't get
the win yesterday, but we got a
lot to be proud of," sophomore
guard Trey Burke said.
Dressed in their Adidas attire
- with "WE ON" and "Leave It
All On The Floor" painted across
their shirts - the players seemed
somber and ready to be back.
Burke laughed and smiled with
senior guard Eso Akunne as the
other players spoke, and fresh-
man guard Spike Albrecht was
the target of jokes.
"I'll try to be quick so you
guys can hear from the legend,
Spike Albrecht," senior guard
Matt Vogrich said.
After Albrecht addressed
the crowd - receiving a stand-
ing ovation from the team
after introducing himself -
Beilein had one last request:
for the team's captain, senior
guard Josh Bartelstein, to
lead the team and the crowd
in "Hail to the Victors" with
the help of Burke, Akunne and
Hardaway.
"I think these guys are cham-
pions in so many ways," Beilein
said.
Everyone sang, everyone
clapped and everyone went
through the motions. But after
the song was over - one of the
last times Team 96 will sing the
fight song in Crisler in front of a
crowd - they moved toward the
exit while the crowd cheered on.
They were readyto go.
"It's good; it's nice. We've
been gone a long time, but we're
all happy to be back," Albrecht
said after the event.
The freshmen looked back on
the entire journey rather than
the very end.
"We had some incredible
games: I mean, our game against
Kansas, Trey hitting that shot,
ourwin over Syracuse," Albrecht
said. "There were a lot of high-
points in that tournament, and
we fell a little bit short, but it
didn't take away from the suc-
cess of the entire season."
ForHardaway, comingbackto
Crisler was an emotional experi-
ence.
"It means the world just to see
our fans out there, and it's very,
very emotional when they're
here, cheering for you even after
a loss, so, I mean, it takes a lot
of toughness just to see that,"
Hardaway said. "We're very
emotional right now."
And while the NBA rumors
swirl around his career, Hard-
away said he isn't thinking about
the draft.
"I'm just reflecting on the
season, talking to a lot of people
and everyone's talking about the
NBA, but I'm not really focused
on that right now," he said. "I'm
focused on this season, what

happened and what this team
can get better at."
McGary cited the freedom to
go to class and relax as what he's
looking forward to, and Beilein
agreed.
"It's been four straight week-
ends on the road, and I think we
all need a sense of normalcy,"
Beilein said. "Believe it or not,
they want to go back to catch
up with classes, and we all have
exams and we have a lot that's
going on, but I'm really proud
with the way they conducted
themselves."
Though the players turned a
blind eye to the media through-
out the tournament - McGary
was unaware of an article on
Buzzfeed suggesting he is a
wizard - Beilein called out
Albrecht's tweet to model Kate
Upton duringthe event.
"Spike is so big right now that
Kate Upton asked him out for a
date and he said he's too busy,"
Beilein said.
The team is back in Ann
Arbor, but when the media asked
if Michigan basketball was
back, mixed reviews came from
McGary and Hardaway.
"I think so. We got back to the
national stage, and it got us back
on top," McGary said.
"Honestly, we got alotofwork
to do, but it's definitely moving
in the right direction," Hard-
away added.
Albrecht pointed out that the
team meets again tomorrow.
"Itwas alongseason - we had
a lot to be proud of - but we have
a meetingtomorrow with Coach
Beilein and the other coaches,
and they're goingto tellus where
we go from here," he said.
University alum Jameel Syed,
a resident of Auburn Hills,
Mich., was the first to enter
Crisler at 2 p.m. for the event
with his 11-year-old son, Jibril,
who was decked in a maize
"Burke" jersey. He took work
off early and pulled Jibril out of
school for what he considered a
once in a lifetime opportunity to
see the team together. Syed, who
grew up in Ann Arbor, said he
has watched Michigan athletics
his whole life. But in Team 96, he
found something special.
"I had to come out here today
because this is the last time this
group is ever going to be assem-
bled, and it's avery special group
of people," Syed said. "And I was
born and raised here, so I've
seen a lot of people come and a
lot of people go, and I haven't
seen this."
Syed planned to be at Crisler
for the team's homecoming win
or lose.
"There were so many lessons
here from a life perspective, let
alone athletics," Syed said. "I
think everybody appreciates
the fact that every single one
of those people - the starters,
the people off the bench - had
something to contribute, and
they fought so hard. And some-
times it turns out this way - that
you don't win - but honestly,
there's so many lessons to learn
from that, and the biggest one is:
Michigan is back."

student organizations.
"We do walks around the city
and teach people about zoning
by analyzing properties in Ann
Arbor," Kong said. "Next fall
we plan to do voter registration
drives and large events."
Kong said there hasbeen inter-
est from students in running for
office, but the party - which is
especially looking for candidates
to run for Ward 4 - has not yet
settled on candidates.
Though they stand to greatly
benefit from the party's goals,
the group is not exclusive to
Greek life members or students
living in Co-Ops, Kong said.
Michael Freedman, the presi-
dentofthe Interfraternity Council,
wrote in an e-mail interview that
a speaker came to talk to chap-
ter presidents regarding running
for the open spots on the council.
Freedman forwarded information
regarding the party to a group of
students involved in the IFC.
Freedman wrote that IFC is
not affiliated with the Mixed Use
Party, but notes there are ben-
efits to having Greek students
represented on the council.
"(It is) not a mission for the
IFC to have Greek affiliation
on the City Council, Freedman
wrote. "However, we are not dis-

will have enough space to house
mechanical systems and a top
floor for the rest of the expansive
literary collections.
Graffagnino said the renova-
tion plans were designed specifi-
callyso thatthebuilding'soverall
look will remain the same.
"The architecture of thisbuild-
ing is one of the treasures on cam-
pus; it has to look like this when
it's finished," he said. "After 90
years we've outgrown this space
and it's a beautiful old building,
but it needs to be fixed up."
Graffagnino emphasized that
the services the library currently
offers, including access to their
collections and references, will
continue during their renovation,
which is invaluable to the 1,200
people, mostly University students,
who use the libraryeveryyear.
Though originally the library
had very strict guidelines for
who could access the collections,
Graffangnino said it has become

couraging it neither."
An e-mail sent to some IFC
members claimed that the city's
zoning laws unfairly discrimi-
nate against fraternities and
sororities, using language that
does not apply to off-campus
residents. The group cited
restrictions on lot sizes for fra-
ternity and sorority housing as
one example.
The City Code of Ann Arbor
states that fraternities and
sororities are not allowed in the
RI, R2A and R3 districts, which
make up a large part of student
housing areas surrounding cam-
pus. The Mixed Use Party takes
issue with this.
"These restrictions prevent fra-
ternities and sororities from using
medium and small buildings," the
e-mail stated. "Delta Chi frater-
nity has only 4,990 square feet,
and would not be allowed today.
Houses like Tau Kappa Epsilon,
Zeta Psi, and Kappa Sigma are
smaller. This limits the options of
fraternities and sororities look-
ing for houses and makes housing
more expensive."
"Because adequate safety
and noise regulations already
exist for all residents, the above
restrictions are unnecessary and
the Mixed Use Party will abolish
them," the e-mail further states.
Students have been dissuaded
in the pastfromrunning for seats
on the City Council considering
much more inclusive over the
past 40 years.
"What makes the Clements
Library unique is that a student
can come in to use the reading
room and sit alongside the next
Pulitzer Prize winner from Har-
vard or Yale coming to use the
collections," he said. "This is a
public university, and service to
the faculty and the students of
our campus is a very serious part
of our mission."
Though the Library special-
izes in early American histori-
cal texts, Graffagnino said it
assists students from more than
20 different departments every
academic year, as it contains
material pertaining to many his-
tory or humanities fields.
Graffagnino added that while
the library prides itself on hav-
ing "the original stuff," it would
be a "shirking of responsibility
in the electronic age" to not digi-
tize its material.
"When you're using a George
Washington letter, you're hold-
ing the original in your hands,
and the real thrill of it for most

the limited time they will be liv-
ing in the city. The recent redis-
tricting of the wards - dividing
the downtown and campus areas
where students housing is usu-
ally located - has also caused
problems for student candidates
who will have a harder time
gaining the majority of votes.
Kong said he thinks the divi-
sions open more opportunities
for students.
"The ward system spreads out
students and makes it difficult for
students to gain a seat without a
large effort, but for the same rea-
son, if we do a particularly good
job organizing, we can win in
multiple wards," Kong said.
City Councilmember Stephen
Kunselman - whose seat may be
challenged by the party - said
he thinks candidates for council
should care about a variety of
issues in the city, and he looks
forward to students utilizing
their democratic right.
"I believe council members
should care about a wide variety of
issues engaging in the community
including students," Kunselman
said. "That said, I think the politi-
cal process is a public good and I
would encourage themto do so."
Kong said the party is hoping
to settle on candidates by May.
Those running for a seat on the
council must turn in their peti-
tion with 100 signatures by May
14, 2013.
people is that history is right in
front of you,"he said. "We can put
it on the computer, which means
you can use it in your dorm at two
in the morning, but nothing can
compare to the originals."
Regardless of the medium,
Graffagnino said he believes the
library offers a unique experi-
ence for University students.
"You have to do the unique
things on this campus, so, I tell
people, 'Come to Michigan, go
to the Big House, watch football
games,' but you can only do this
in American history here," he
said. "What Mr. Clements creat-
ed, and what we've maintained,
is a library that's absolutely
world class, and the best in the
world for American history."
Graffagnino said he believes the
renovation will only increase the
library's value withinthe University.
"For people that have an inter-
est, this is a treasure," he said.
"We'll continue to add to the
collections and the strengths
that we already have, while mak-
ing the experience better for all
those who use the library.

SUSTAINABLE
From Page 1A
launched a focus group in Burs-
ley Residence Hall where Uni-
versity employees could discuss
their experiences with and opin-
ions on liquid ozone.
Director of Housing Facilities
Victoria Hueter pitched the proj-
ect.
"Liquid ozone as a cleaning
product is not normal," Hueter
said. "It doesn't have color or
scent. It doesn't bubble up when
you scrub it. It looks just like
water ... It doesn't smell like it's
working, but it is."
"You don't have your normal
indicators that it's working," she
added. "People were saying, 'You.
want us to clean with water?

How does this really work?"'
However, Hueter explains
that Housing used a special,
biology-based test to prove
that the liquid ozone was an
effective cleaner. The test,
called an "adenosine triphos-
phate meter test," measured
the amount of adenosine tri-
phosphate, or ATP, before and
after cleaning. ATP is a mol-
ecule used as a form of energy
currency in most organisms,
including germs, so the change
in ATP areas cleaned with liq-
uid ozone have fewer number
of living organisms than before
cleaned with liquid ozone or
cleaned with a chemical clean-
ing product.
Sam Johnson, a custodian
in the Michigan union, said he
prefers liquid ozone more than

chemical cleaner.
"Using harsher chemicals
that we had before, you take that
whiff home with you; you smell
it, you taste it," Johnson said. He
said a drawback it its two-hour
lifespan.
Mike Shriberg, a lecturer
who teaches the course, said his
Environment 391 course is pop-
ular among students.
Shriberg emphasized the
importance of hands-on group
projects in the class like the liq-
uid ozone experiment.
"We are hardwired to learn
by doing," he said. "This
course is a prime example of
that ... There are no tests in the
.course, but to actually take a
project from start to finish is
a big deal and big responsibil-
ity."

FELLOWSHIP
From Page 1A
been struggling their whole life
and had to really work harder
to work past th eir disabil-
ity," Jennifer LaRusso-Leung,
engagement manager for the
fellowship, said. "The great
thing is they're sitting in class
with you at some of these top
schools, so they really are very
intelligent students who are
trying to persevere."
At the end of each August,
40 students are chosen to go
to New York City to be inter-
viewed. Half of the interview-
ees move on and receive career
advising as part of the fellow-
ship.
A primary focus of the pro-
gram is to help students boost
confidence about obtaining
desired employment opportu-
nities. Students gain support
and make friendships through-
out the experience, but they
also are part of a professional-
training network.
"The goal is to prepare them
for internships, connect them
for the internships and, at the
end of the day, to help them
be successful in those roles so
that they can get a full time
offer upon graduation," Lang
explained.
While the coaching lasts only
five days, those selected to be
part of the program will always

be considered a fellow. Alumni
fellows also continue to act
as mentors after participants
graduate.
No individual with a dis-
ability should be discouraged
to apply if they are interested,
Lang said. Even if they are not
selected to be fellows, all of the
finalists still have the ability to
be in the Lime Network.
At the fellowship's annual
symposium held in August, the
group of fellows gathers togeth-
er to share stories about their
experiences.
"For me, it was more about
learning about myself than
anything," Business junior
Rohit Kapur said of his Lime
Connect Fellowship experi-
ence. "A lot of people struggle
talking to others about the
problems they're facing, and
it made it so much easier for
me to talk about it. I would
say people should apply. I
mean, it helps you be more
comfortable with yourself."
LSA junior Kiki Fox, who was
accepted for the fellowship last
year, wrote in an e-mail that the
experience helped her prepare
for recruiting processes and
provides priceless networking
opportunities.
"It was great to hear about
the intricacies of each of the
internship programs at the
various companies, so we could
get a feel for which companies
might be a good fit."
