About five minutes previous to blast off time Tuesday, some 150 students, professors, visitors and workmen crowded into the lobby of Kellogg center to watch Astronaut John Glenn rocket into history.

Viewers sat on the floor, stood on tables, sat and stood on the window sills and on the counter to get a peek at the television set in the center's lobby.

It was a serious group. Some of them had been there for hours waiting for the historic moment when Glenn was fired into orbit.

After years of decline, Canada's dirty diapers, coffee grounds and banana peels are once again being trucked to Michigan in a major way. The reason? Michigan's abundant landfills and low fees make it a preferred destination for trash from other states and other countries.

"Michigan has made its regulations as landfill-friendly and trash-friendly as any state in the country," said Mike Garfield, executive director of The Ecology Center, an Ann Arbor-based environmental nonprofit.

On February 19, 1976, President Gerald Ford signed the proclamation “An American Promise.” It formally announced the termination Executive Order 9066, the measure that had resulted in the uprooting of Japanese Americans and their detainment in camps during World War II.

Although E.O. 9066 had ceased to be effective once hostilities had ended, the Japanese American Citizens League and others petitioned the White House to have the termination officially recognized.
