County Circuit Judge to
direct Dearborn program

Student duo places second
in national debate contest

Shelton leaves bench
for role in criminal
justice program
Daily StaffReporter
After 24 years of service,
Washtenaw County Circuit
Court Judge Donald Shelton
announced Tuesday that he will
step down in four months early to
take a position at the University
of Michigan-Dearborn campus.
Shelton will be the new
director of Dearborn's criminal
justice program and an associate
professor starting in the Fall 2014
term. Shelton's term as judge was
set to expire Jan. 1, 2015 but will
now end Sep. 1, 2014.
In an interview Wednesday,
Shelton said stepping down
wasn't an easy decision, with or
without the last four months of
his term.

"Leaving the bench is always
a difficult decision, like leaving
anything else you've done for
almost a quarter of a century,"
Shelton said. "But frankly, four
months difference doesn't
change any of those feelings. I've
enjoyed being a judge, but I've
been preparing for and looking
forward to being a teacher for a
long time."
Shelton has previously held
positions as an adjunct professor
in several fields, including
criminology and politicalscience,
at Eastern Michigan University
and Cooley Law School. He also
served on Eastern Michigan's
Board of Regents from 1987 to
1990 and was the mayor of Saline
from 1978 to 1986.
As the director of the criminal
justice program, Shelton said his
plan for his first semester is to
learn as much as he can.
"One of the things I learned
a long time ago is that when
you come into a new program

the first thing you should do is
be a sponge and keep quiet and
listen," Shelton said. "That's
my first objective for the first
semester I'm there."
After that, he said he'd like
to increase focus on forensic
science, which is his area of
research specialty.
Barry Pyle, a political science
professor at Eastern Michigan
University, said Shelton has pro-
vided valuable contributions to
the department at EMU as an
adjunct professor and is quali-
fied for a full time academic
"Judge Shelton has opened up
his chambers to a number of our
students to work closely with
him while he was a judge to give
them hands on experience," Pyle
said. "He was able to take a lot of
his real life experience into the
classroom here on campus and
give students a realistic view of
what it's like to be in a circuit
court dealing with drugs, and
crime, and family law issues."
This term would have been
Shelton's last as a judge even if
he hadn't chosen to accept the
Dearborn position. Michigan

and Mike Woodyard announced
plans earlier this year to run for
his seat.
Judge Darlene A. O'Brien, who
serves alongside Shelton on the
court, said that Shelton has been
a strong leader and an asset to the
citizens of Washtenaw County
during his time on the court.
"Judge Shelton will be missed,
but I'm equally certain that he'll
add great value to the University
of Michigan-Dearborn's
Criminal Justice program,"
O'Brien said.

Team records best
season finish for
University since 1991
Daily StaffReporter
Business junior Ellis Allen
and LSA junior Alex Pappas
took home the second place
title at the 2014 National Debate
Tournament on March 31 at
Indiana University.
Allen and Pappas defeated
Harvard University in the
semifinals and narrowly lost
to Georgetown University in
the final round, earning the
University second place for the
first time since 1991.
Aaron Kall, who has served as
director of the debate team since
2010, said Pappas and Allen's
time commitment and efficiency
are what allowed them to come
this far.
"Work ethic is something
that's very important and our
debaters spend a lot of time
researching- the topic and
spending time practicing so
I think that's something that
really sets us apart," Kall said.
Kall said the most dedicated
debaters spend 20 to 40 hours

each week preparing for debate,
while also maintaining high
grades as full-time students. The
average GPA of the debate team
was about 3.75 last semester.
Pappas said the team's
willingness to work hard and
the vast resources the University
has to offer were also important
in the team's success.
"I really think the resources
of Michigan are sort of what
allows us to excel," he said. "I
think my partner and I have just
invested so much time and that
we're pretty darn good at it."
Allen added that the team's
success could also be attributed
to the initiative of the students
on the team.
"I think it's one of the more
student-driven ones," he said.
"There are a lot of teams out
there who have phenomenal
coaching staffs but everything,
all the work we put out is
student-motivated here and that
also gives us a lot of creative
control over what we do."
Both Allen and Pappas agreed
that success at debate is based
on the amount of work you put
in, beginning early in the year
and continuing throughout.
"I think its just preparation,
preparation, preparation,"
Pappas said. "It can be a single

piece of' evidence that's the
difference between winning and
The University has
participated in the National
Debate Tournament since 1971,
winning second place three
times, but has never taken home
the championship. Nevertheless,
Kall is optimistic about next
year, given that Pappas and
Allen will have the opportunity
to build off their success going
into their senior season.
"They've got a great chance,
probably as good a chance as
anyone next year to win the
national title, to win that final
debate, and so we're really
looking forward to next year as
well," Kall said.
Pappas and Allen both said
they hope to win the National
Debate Championship next year
and win the Copeland Award,
an award for the top-ranked
national team of the year.
end of the season," Kall said.
"But close defeat just motivates
our students to work harder,
to spend more time practicing,
more time on research, and to
kind of get them motivated to
just take it to that very next and
final level next year to win the
national championship."

Park declines additional wolves

With population
dwindling, officials
promise new plan
- No additional gray wolves will
be transplanted to Isle Royale
National Park for now, the park's
top manager said Wednesday,
despite concerns that the Lake
Superior island chain's dwin-
dling and inbred population
might not survive much longer.
After consulting with experts
and reviewing comments from

the public, Isle Royale Superin-
tendent Phyllis Green said staff-
ers will develop a management
plan that considers the wolves'
long-term survival prospects
and their interactions with
moose. The two species' preda-
tor-prey relationship is the sub-
ject of one of the world's longest
scientific studies of its type, now
in its S6th year.
It will take about three years
to craft the plan, which also will
focus on park vegetation and the
effects of climate change, Green
said. Officials could reconsider
augmenting the wolf population

if gender imbalance prevents
them from reproducing or if
moose begin overbrowsing trees
and bushes, stripping them of
leaves and needles.
"As long as there'sa breeding
population, we're going to let
these animals have a chance
to live their lives without us
intervening," Green said.
Scientists, park officials and
wildlife advocates are divided
over whether to attempt a
rescue of the wolves, a popular
attraction for visitors even
though most never glimpse the
wily creatures.
