they are getting paid more."

Alexander agreed.

numbers are higher than last year‘s."

posed to end at 8 ant. Sunday.

Flight 5191 crashed at 6:07 a.m.. about
an hour before sunrise.

Hersman said the investigation would
continue to examine if this was normal
scheduling for a traffic controller. She said a
controller is required to have at least eight
hours off between shifts.

“We will continue to look at shifting
and policies." Hersman said.

She would not comment if the con—

The controller handled Io takeoffs after

minutes before the crash.

Hersman said the controller was per«
forming several duties. such as clearance.
departure control. approach control and
ground clearance. since he was the only
controller in the tower. Hersman said that

needed on the runway for Flight 5l9l to ac—

room would be needed after that minimal

I37 knots, the NTSB said.

Flight 5 l9l took off from the 35(l0-foot

All three will be on stage for the first poetry
slam of the semester at the Cats [)en in the Student
Center tonight at 7:07 pm.

Poetry slams. such as those seen in coffee hous-

participants perform poetry before an audience.
Writers use their personal lyrical styles in their per-

“It seemed to draw a pretty good crowd last
year. and we re hoping that it s just going to get
better as we hold more of them. said Kathryne

the Cats Denis events coordinator.

More slams are being scheduled for the future.
This particular event has been held at the Cats Den
since November 2005.

A slam in February will award the winner a paid
trip to the National Slam in Tennessee hosted by the
Association of Colleges Unions lntemational.

“We see this as an opportunity for students to
express themselves poetically." Goldey said. “One
of my concems is that people are hesitant to get on
stage. but the slam is very welcoming and reward-

The Cats [)en also hosts a number of events on
campus throughout the year. including weekly Bin-

The Tennessee Senate race
is shaping up as one of the most
interesting this year. with Ford
mounting a fierce effort to be-
come the first African Ameiican
since Reconstruction to be elett—
ed to the Senate from the South.
Tennessee is a conservative
state. and political analysts here
say Bush’s popularity has not
fallen as steeply as it has in oth
er states.

But Ford has been making
inroads by stressing moderate
positions on social and fiscal ls
sues. He has supported the war
in Iraq but told the Nashville
'I'cnnessean this w eels that he

does not share .i "stay the
course" philosophy with the

()n (worker‘s campaign Web
site. he says: "We must com

“turn the race into a referendum
on the president. and some of
(‘orker's moves have played
into this." including Wednesday

But (iccr said he doubts the
fundraiser will Iiurt (‘orker too
much. especially since GDP of—
ficials said they collected more
than \lfi million for the cam»

Just the fact that the race ap—
pears to be so close is bad news
for the Republicans. according
to (ieer and other analysts. A
switch of six seats would give
the Democrats control of the
Senate for the first time since

“Democrats are going to
have a good year in the Senate."
said Jennifer Duffy. who tracks
Senate races for the nonpartisan
(‘ook Political Report. "'I‘cir
iicsscc is the lircwall between a

ptihlican majority. If this state
goes Democratic. it would likely
mean the Democrats will be in
