get in front of defensive backs, as
junior Devin Funchess did twice,
and pick up a first down. It could
have been a team whose quarter-
back, when no other option was
available, scrambled to find room.
A 95-yard drive caught you by
surprise, just as it caught Hoke by
surprise. He pumped his fist like
you pumped your fist, and you
thought that maybe, even if you
didn't have a reason to, this was
the Michigan team you wanted to
"It's a beautiful thing," Hoke
said, "when you see a 95-yard
drive. That was neat."
You forgot about the painful-
ness of the season when, on the
next possession, after receiving
a pitch, Johnson stopped, turned
around six yards behind the line
of scrimmage and lofted a pass
to an open Gardner. And you
laughed because it worked, and

it hadn't been tried yet, and you
knew what Michigan could have
tried it at any other point.
You didn't think about how
angry you were with Brady Hoke
and how much you clamored for
a new coach in the 28:27, because
the team you had expected to see
all along enthralled you. As Hoke
paused in his press conference,
he stuttered over his words and
forgot about the questions on his
future and his impending conver-
sation with Athletic Director Jim
Hackett, just like you forgot in
Those 28 minutes and 27
seconds didn't erase the sting
that came with losing the third
straight in the rivalry and miss-
ing out on a bowl game. They
can't erase the image of Hoke and
Gardner looking up at a score-
board at the same time during the
final minute, with a hand on their
hip to see all that could have been
come to fruition.
"Would we like to be that
way?" Hoke said. "Yeah, we'd like
to be like that all the time. Have
we been? No."
But was this the type of team
Michigan could have been?
"Yeah. Absolutely," said Jake
Then, in the 28th second, the
Buckeyes marched 81 yards down
the field, running for 30 yards
until they decided they would
pass instead. They stopped the
Wolverines on the next three pos-
sessions, built up a 21-point lead
and ruined any hopes of making
the game close.
So you remembered what
Michigan has been, and it was the
same feeling you had before the
game as you had after it.
It was irritating because it had
been missing for nearly all of this
season. Itwas maddeningbecause
those 28 minutes took so long to
arrive, yet lasted so briefly you
didn't get to savor them. It was
painful because you saw it taken
right out in front of you.
But, damn, it was fun.

Extension of Wastewater
with Scio Township
The Council will hear a reso-
lution to extend agreements
between the city and Scio
Township that has permitted
Scio to use Ann Arbor's waste-
water treatment systems for
the last 30 years.
The agreement originally
allotted Scio up to 2.05 million
gallons of sanitary sewage per
day, but Scio has historically
used about half of that amount.
The resolution therefore also
dictates that the contract
"should be revised and restat-
ed to define the relationships,
rights and obligations of the
City and Scio Township going
If approved, the agreement
would extend the contract to
2024 and provide an option
for extension in 10-year incre-
ments to 2044.
The resolution noted that
while Scio has expressed inter-
est in continuing the agree-
ment, the township has also
secured land for the construc-
tion of its own treatment plant.
Revision to Freedom of
Council will be presented a
resolution that would instruct
City Administrator Steve Pow-
ers to "renew his efforts" to
revise and update the city's
policies regarding its public
As a public body, the city
must make certain documents
available under the Freedom of
Information Act. The policies
under which these documents
would be released have been
under revision since early 2013.
Dave Askins, editor of The
Ann Arbor Chronicle, which
ceased publication in Septem-
ber, provided the Council with
detailed feedback regarding
proposed changes in March.
Additionally, FOIA revisions
at the state level have been
under discussion since 2013,
though the resolution acknowl-
edges that neither the city nor
the state has moved forward in
approving any revisions.
The resolution calls for the
city's FOIA policy to increase
transparency and for the estab-
lishment of FOIA officers for
both the city and Council. It
also calls for changes to the

ecary to Turner in 1994.
Now Turner manages the store
and pharmacy with the Apoth-
ecary's administrative assistant,
Debra Cook, and a close-knit
staff. Both Turner's and Cook's
children have worked at the
store, and family pictures line the
wall in the back of the pharmacy.
Throughout its history, the
Apothecary has built up a com-
munity of loyal customers, with
some patrons supporting the
store since the 1960s, Turner
said. He said the personal rela-
tionships he is able to foster with
his costumers keep them coming
"Typically they're surprised at
the service we can provide and
how prompt we are and what
we're willing to do to help them
out," he said. "Which brings most
of them back all the time."
The store has also built a rela-
tionship with the University and
its students. Cook said Turner
has made the pharmacy more
college-oriented since he bought
the store by hiring students,
carrying items for students and
creating more personal relation-
ships with them. She said he
knows hundreds of his customers
by their first names.
"People are our family," Cook
said. "The people that come in
- they know us, we know them,
they know our stories, we know
theirs, they know our kids, we
know theirs. It's like home; there
are times we're here more than
we are at home."
Turner works with many stu-
dents and faculty from the Col-
lege of Pharmacy, some of whom
work there their entire four years
on campus. Turner usually takes
on at least one University student
intern in the Apothecary each

Karmeisool said the store pro-

events, to help build asex-positive
environment in the area.

that's put on being a sexual being,"

Black Friday weekend
*slows as allure decreases

0 Americans become
Black Friday fatigue is setting
Early discounting, more online
shopping and a mixed economy
meant fewer people shopped
over Thanksgiving weekend, the
National Retail Federation said
Overall, 133.7 million people
shopped in stores and online over
the four-day weekend, down 5.2
percent from last year, accord-
ing to a survey of 4,631 people
conducted by Prosper Insights &
Analytics for the trade group.
Total spending for the week-
end is expected to fall 11 percent
to $50.9 billion from an estimated
$57.4 billion last year, the trade
Part of the reason is that Target,
J.C. Penney, Macy's, Wal-Mart
and other major retailers pushed
fat disonunts as early as Hallow-
een. Some opened stores even ear-
lier on Thanksgiving. All thatstole
some thunder from Black Friday
and the rest of the weekend.
Still, the preliminary data
makes retailers worried that
shoppers remain frugal despite
improving employment and fall-
ing gas prices.
Matt Shay, the trade group's
CEO, said he thinks people ben-
efiting from the recovery may
not feel the need to fight crowds
to get the deepest discount on a
TV or toaster. And those who feel
like the recession never ended
may not have the money and
will stretch out what they spend
And shoppers are still feeling
the effects of high food prices and
"While they're more optimis-
tic, they're very cautious," Shay
said. "If the deals are not right for
them, they're not going to spend."
Bottom line: Expect more deep
discounts, all season long.
"Every day will be Black Fri-
day. Every minute will be Cyber
Monday," he said.
That could be what it takes to
get shoppers to open their wallets
for the holiday shopping season,
which accounts for about 20 per-
cent of annual retail sales.
Besides economic factors, peo-
ple are becoming more discern-
ing when they shop. Armed with
smartphones and price-compari-
son apps, they know what's a good
deal - and what's not.
Kimani Brown, 39, of New
York City, was among the Black
Friday defectors. After four years
of braving the crowds, the sales
failed to lure him out this year.
"I consider myself a smart
shopper. And it's not as alluring as
it used to be," Brown said. "It's a
marketing tool, and I don't want
to be pulled into it."
He also said the frenzy pushed
him to overspend, and he paid the
price in January on his credit card
Instead, he said he will look

Some who went shopping on
Thanksgiving felt they were doing
it against their will. Cathyliz
Lopez of New York City said she
felt forced to shop on the holiday.
"It's ruining the spirit of
Thanksgiving," the 20-year-old
said Thursday. "But I was check-
ing all the ads, and the best deals
The National Retail Federa-
tion is still predicting a 4.1 per-
cent increase in sales for the
season. That would be the high-
est increase since the 4.8 percent
gain in 2011.
Some stores and malls had rea-
son to be optimistic.
Dan Jasper, a spokesman at
Mall of America in Bloomington,
Minnesota, said customer counts
are up 5 to 6 percent for the four-
day weekend. One plus: Shoppers
were buying more for themselves,
a sign of optimism.
"They felt confident in the
economy," he said.
CEOs at Target and Toys R Us
said they saw shoppers not just
focusing on the doorbuster deals
but throwing extra items in their
Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren
told The Associated Press on Fri-
day that he's hoping lower gas
prices will help spending.
"There's reason to believe that
confidence should continue to
grow. That should be good for dis-
cretionary spending," he said.
