TENT CITY
Homeless

community
Camp Take Notice
continues to offer
shelter after eviction
By SUZANNE JACOBS
Daily StaffReporter
Despite recent trouble with the
Michigan State Police, Camp Take
Notice - a self-governing group of
homeless individuals living in tents -
still hopes to remain a viable shelter
option for the homeless in Washtenaw
County.
With the county's homeless popu-
lation growing too quickly for local
homeless shelters to accommodate,
the residents of CTN and the members
of Michigan Itinerant Shelter System:
Independent out of Necessity-the
non-profit organization that supports
CTN - want to bring to Washtenaw
County a tent city model that has
proved successful in Seattle, Wash-
ington.
Caleb Poirier, one of the founding
residents of CTN, brought the concept
of an organized, self-governing tent
city to Ann Arbor after spending two
years in a tent city in Seattle. Poirer
said the tent cities in Seattle organized
by the Seattle Housing and Resource
Effort, or SHARE - an organization
that aims to eradicate homelessness -
have proved to be successful alterna-
tives to shelters.
The first major tent city in Seattle
began in 1990 when a group of home-
less individuals pitched an army tent
without permission on public land.
The group managed itself with demo-
cratically elected officers and no staff,

Fundraiser for
children's hospital
excels in fourth year
By RYANKARTJE
ManagingEditor
University of Michigan Athletic
Director David Brandon remembers
four years ago when the Champi-
ons for Children's Hearts Weekend
fundraiser was comprised of just a
tent, a golf outing and free food, led
by former football players Brian Gri-

ese and Steve Hutchinson.
Now in its fourth year and with
a third leader in former Heisman
Trophy winner Charles Woodson
joining the team, the event reached
new heights in its donations to Mott
Children's Hospital, eclipsing the $1
million mark. That far exceeds the
previous three events, which had
combined for a total of $1.2 million.
The greater amount of money
donated is due in part to the pro-
gram, which featured a silent and
live auction on Saturday night that
was hosted by ESPN personality
Mike Tirico.
"I never would've dreamed that

this would've raised over a million
dollars," Brandon said. "It's mind-
boggling that in just four years of
work that everyone could put some-
thing like this together."
Despite 2010 being Brandon's
first year at the helm of the Athletic
Department, he's no stranger to the
Champions for Children's Heart
Weekend. And since Brandon's twin
sons, Chris and Nick, were saved
shortly after birth by doctors at Mott
Hospital, the event functions as a
yearly reminder for him of what's
important in life.
