Running an uphill battle for the
Republican gubernatorial nomination,
state Sen. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek)
will bring in some high profile help
today in the form of a "Straight Talk
Express" bus tour around southern
Michigan with U.S. Sen. John McCain
(R-Ariz.). The bus will stop at the
Michigan Union today, the last day resi-
dents can register to vote.
Schwarz faces heavy competition for
the GOP nomination from Lt. Gov.
Dick Posthumus. Former Michigan
Gov. William Milliken, a moderate-to-
liberal Republican, like Schwarz, who
has endorsed the state senator, will also
make an appearance.
"It's a big push. It's crunch time as far
as the election," Schwarz campaign
manager Gary Haulmark said. "We're
trying to push the grassroots effort"
Schwarz and McCain have known
each other since McCain first came to
Michigan in 1999 as part of his 2000
presidential bid. With most Republican
leaders behind then-Texas Gov. George

11 crash site

NEW YORK - With the 10-month anniversary of Sept. 11
approaching, New Yorkers find themselves coping with its
legacy in different ways.
For University alum Beth Nissen, a CNN senior correspon-
dent for NewsNight with Aaron Brown, confronting the terror-
ist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center towers and
the city's famous landscape is part of her job.
"I've revisited (the events of 9/11) in various forms," Nissen
said. "It's never really gone away. It's something I live with on
almost a weekly basis."
"Ground Zero has gone from a hallowed ground to a weird
combination of construction site and tourist draw," she added.
Since the end of the debris clean-up in May, New York-
ers are trying to find ways to rebuild both their lives and
City officials working to remove the pieces of the fallen
towers picked up over 1.4 million tons of debris and steel dur-
ing the 8.5-month-long clean up, said Sid Disney, spokesman
for the Office of Emergency Management.
"In any given 24-hour period, 600 to 700 workers were on
site - construction workers, firemen, police officers," Dinsey
said. "It was a 24-hour operation, seven days a week."
Now, the city is concentrating on plans to rebuild lower
Manhattan. Officials hope to announce the first phase of a
three-part plan for the area's redevelopment to the public next
week, said Nancy Poderycki, a spokeswoman for the Lower
Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation.
She said the redevelopment corporation has worked exten-

Theater construction still in limbo as
usage, size, location debates rage on

Plans for Walgreen Drama Center and Arthur Miller The-
ater are finding a new home on the drawing board, where
they have resided for more than six months.
The initiative to build a new drama and theater complex
has been in the works since 1997 when former University
President Lee Bollinger announced his idea to honor Uni-
versity alum and playwright Arthur Miller, author of "The
Crucible" and "Death of a Salesman."
But the idea, which University officials say is definitely
going to materialize sometime in the future, has also been
on hold since December, after the estimated cost for the
project rose from an initial $18 million to $67 million.
University Facilities and Operations spokeswoman Diane
Brown said the cost increased due to the increased needs of the
involved departments, such as the dance and theater programs.
"The 20 million was what was budgeted and the 67 mil-
lion was what was created because of the needs," Brown
said. "When things changed with the needs of the depart-
ments ... rather than continue forward, they (chose to)
review what needs tobe done."
Officials in charge of planning the project are still debat-
ing exactly what those needs are. University spokeswoman
Julie Peterson said a major topic of debate is whether related
departments should be moved from their current homes,
