HISTORY LESSON - Children from the Sunday school of Bethel A.M.E. Church watch history being made in Ann Arbor as Plum Street is renamed Sunday to honor the late Rev. John A. Woods. The Ann Arbor City Council voted last month to rename the street after a petition drive by members of the church. Woods is the first African-American in Ann Arbor to have a street named for him. Former Mayor Al Wheeler, City Councilwoman Ann Marie Coleman along with members and friends of the church spoke during the ceremony Sunday. The Rev. C. Wesley Gordon is now pastor of Bethel.

SHORT SIGN: This is one of two stop signs on Redeemer Ave. at Pauline Blvd. which have been ruled illegal by Municipal Judge Francis L. O'Brien because they are shorter than the prescribed height. They are used only during school crossing hours.

IT'S LEGAL NOW: This stop sign at Pauline Blvd. and Redeemer Ave. now complies with state law. The sign, which formally was only 4 feet high, touched off a storm of protest by motorists who received tickets for driving through it. The sign slides down to allow the school crossing guard to cover it when youngsters are not going to and from school. City officials have said the sign is one of a number which must be corrected to be brought up to state requirements.
