Ann Arbor Pilot Flys High
Richard Hoseli of Ann Arbor was a member of the U.S. Precision Flight Team which took a fourth place team trophy at the Second World Championships of Precision Flight in Wels, Austria, recently. The U.S. team, making its second appearance in the competition, finished behind Sweden, Poland and Austria.
The U.S. team is sponsored by the National Pilots Association on a non-profit basis.
If you want something bad enough, you have to fight for it.
That is what Zuhal Ardan of Ann Arbor did Monday night outside the Sears Store in Briarwood when her purse was snatched.
She had just finished working in the store's fitting department and was walking out of the store when a man grabbed her purse. Zuhal, who is from Turkey, yelled at the suspect and followed in hot pursuit. The suspect was soon caught by two youths and taken into custody.
Zuhal was a bit out of breath, but happy.
