LIVONIA - In an effort to gain
support for his economic strategy,
President Bush delivered a speech at
Beaver Aerospace and Defense,
Inc., proclaiming that "the corner-
stone of any good jobs plan is to
encourage small business growth."
In order to do this, Bush has
pushed a plan involving tax breaks
for many small businesses.
"Most new jobs in America are
created by entrepreneurs and small
business people. The plan I'm
describing to you creates incentive
for people to make investments to
make their small business more
competitive," he said.
"The more money people have in
their pockets, the more they will
demand a good or a service. And
when somebody demands a good or
a service, in this economy of ours,
somebody will produce a good or a
service. And when somebody pro-
duces that good or a service, it
means somebody is more likely to
find work," Bush added.
Bush also said that much of fix-

An inferno broke out at the Ann Arbor Technology
Center at 400 W. Washington St. around 5:20 P.M.,
Thursday afternoon. The blaze, which overtook the
entire block, was laid to rest Friday morning at 10:07
A.M. At its zenith,

Skrypec said one reason for the difficulty of extinguish-
ing the fire was the jumbled construction of the building.
"It's a big cut-up," Skrypec said. "There are actually
four or five buildings that are all tied together."
He said that fire fighters were able to attack the remain-
ing areas of concern more effectively after the fire had
cooled down a bit and heavy equipment was brought in to
clear a path for the crew.
