Waverly Middle School to obtain $1.4 million grant MARY JO WHITE

| mjwhite@lsj.com

DELTA TWP. - Stung by its middle school landing on the state’s “least proficient” list last summer, Waverly staff worked very hard to snag a $1.4-million school improvement grant for next year. The money will be used for a host of upgrades, including adding reading, math and behavior specialists to the staff as well as two Response to Intervention coaches. RTI, a program already in place throughout Waverly, identifies struggling students, then uses a variety of strategies to help them improve. The school day will also be lengthened and a summer academy started. “This grant represents an opportunity to bring additional resources to the middle school,:” said principal Mike Moreno. “This is a significant investment in the areas of math, reading, technology, professional development and a host of additional academic services for the students.” Steps toward improvement have already been taken

But Sika’s already thinking ahead to more “theme sculptures” designed to symbolize people’s lives that could be used as gifts or memorials. See PARTS, Page 11

Troy Sika explains the welding process for his tree sculpture whose bark effect was achieved by using different heat ranges. The piece took about 50 hours of welding and cutting, using 40 pounds of metal rods from Padnos Iron and Metal. MARY JO WHITE / LCN

Sika, whose mechanical skills have already garnered at least five People’s Choice awards from the Lansing Community Newspapers, has a collection of original sculptures created from recycled scrap on display that will blow you away. Some pieces fashioned totally from car and truck parts he calls caricatures. The three dogs with long floppy ears and car antenna tails inspired by his yellow lab named Tucker, for instance. A whimsical frog with a bug on its tongue whose base is an oil pan from a small-block Chevrolet

Own a Small Business? Consider These Retirement Plans YOUR BUSINESS DESERVES For a variety of reasons, many people, particularly those in the baby boom generation, are considering retiring later than they might have originally planned. If you’re in this group, you’ll want to take full advantage of those extra working years by contributing as much as you can to a retirement plan that can help you build resources, defer taxes and, ultimately, maximize income.

But you’ll certainly be able to contribute large amounts: A defined benefit plan is the only retirement account that allows contributions in excess of the limits placed on 401(k) s and other defined contribution plans. Generally speaking, the closer you get to retirement, the larger your maximum yearly contributions will be. (This is because you’ll have fewer years left in which to fund your defined benefit.)

grad Crystal Stanley is considered one of the best hurdlers ever to run on a mid-Michigan track. Add Grand Ledge senior Tory Schiller to that conversation. The mere suggestion made her jaw drop Wednesday. But it came just minutes after she erased Stanley from the Greater Lansing Honor Roll Track Meet record book with the fastest 300-meter hurdles time in the event’s 37-year history. The Honor Roll Meet was held at Waverly on June 1. Schiller ran the race in 44 seconds — seven-tenths faster than Stanley in 2005 — and gave this Honor Roll Meet a needed jolt after a raft of rainouts and reschedulings caused many of the area’s top athletes to pull out of a number of events. “I like the 300 because every single time I have a real meet, this is always the event I’m most tired in. I’ve never really gotten to my

Brianna Flowers came in second in the pole vault representing the Warriors, clearing 10’6”, and Victoria Milton also claimed a second-place finish, in the shot put, with a throw of 35’10.5”. Waverly’s 400-meter relay team of Flowers, Leandre Bennett, Shelby Clementin and Noelle Miles took second in that event with a time of 50.7 seconds, and Bennett, Flowers, Miles and Chante Roberts placed third in the 800-meter relay in 1:49.62. Roberts also placed fifth individually in the 400-meter dash, posting a time of 1:01.4. Schiller just edged DeWitt junior Tori DeSira, who swept the hurdles races at the last two Honor Roll meets and won the 100 hurdles Wednesday. Schiller nearly tripped over the final hurdle and again across the finish line, but still edged DeSira by nearly a second. Fowler senior Lindsey Hufnagel cut more than a second off her best 400 time this season in winning that race by seven-tenths ahead

of Sexton senior Breterria Hill — last season’s Division 2 state runner-up. A Western Michigan signee, she said coming in that she looked forward to Wednesday because it allowed her to face elite competition. She also won the 100, just in front of junior Shaleen Williams, a Division 1 state qualifier. Hufnagel also ran on the winning 1,600 relay. Hufnagel has won four individual Division 4 state titles and a fifth as part of a relay, but had yet to win at the Honor Roll Meet. Hufnagel was third in the 400 last season, while was Hills was second. “When you hit that 100, your legs are like rubber, and it’s a lot easier to keep running when someone else is right there running with you,” Hufnagel said of the 200 win. “I couldn’t hear (Hill), but she’s run a fast time; I knew she was going to be there. “It’ll be at the same level (as a state title). I’d never won at the Honor Roll before, and I didn’t realize it until today. So it’s nice to do, a nice accomplish-

full potential,” Schiller said. “I just wanted to be able to rest up on everything else and just finally put in a full effort in the 300s. “It’s crazy to walk in the footsteps of people like (Stanley). It’s an honor.” Schiller finished first in both of her events Wednesday, also anchoring the winning 400 relay. She chose not to run the 100 hurdles and long jump, two other events in which she was a top contender, choosing instead to get some additional rest in advance of Saturday’s Division 1 state meet. That was the common story at this Honor Roll Meet. Because of last week’s storms, all four CAAC championship meets were moved to May 31, the day before the Honor Roll Meet. And that, combined with states on June 4, led to more than 100 entries pulling out. That in turn led to lesser fields in some events — although aside from the girls 200 with just three competitors, the rest of the events were full or close. Waverly’s Montel Smith had the best result for the home team in the meet, win-

ment.” Four others joined DeSira and Schiller as repeat individual winners: Grand Ledge senior Jake Bennett (shot put), Okemos senior Owen Hughes (high jump), Pewamo-Westphalia junior Kirstie Wieber (pole vault) and Lansing Catholic senior Megan Heeder (3,200). But like Hufnagel, Wednesday’s other two multiple individual winners also were first-timers: Holt senior Kyla Walworth in the shot put and discus and Eastern senior Tyler Allen in the 100 and 200. It was a high point to a

tough finish for Allen, who has signed to play football at Eastern Michigan this fall. Allen ran the 100 in 10.4 seconds during his junior season, but only 10.7 at his best this spring while also battling an injured Achilles tendon. Allen finished second in the 100 at last year’s Honor Roll Meet, to DeWitt thensenior Ross Parsons. Allen will be the Quakers’ only competitor at Saturday’s Division 1 state meet. “Hopefully winning the Honor Roll will pick me up,” Allen said. “Especially taking second to Ross last year, this was nice taking that step up into first.” Delta-Waverly Community News sports writer Scott Yoshonis also contributed to this story.

DELTA TWP. - Ed Reed, Delta Township’s new economic development coordinator, hit the ground running when he started work in late March. Reed, who hails from DeWitt Township, says he’s contacted over 300 businesses between Broadbent and Waverly Roads, handing out construction maps and asking how Delta can help merchants weather the inevitable slump that torn-up roads bring. “Many people expressed thanks,” he said. “Some had (already) been bracing for the downturn.“ Reed has also been busy off Saginaw, having visited GM, Bridgewater and Auto Owner’s Insurance so far. “(I want) to send the message that I can be their ‘go to’ person when they have a need,” he said. Reed can draw on a wealth

of experience to help Delta businesses, having spent 23 years as a business development manager at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation who just happened to work with local governments in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Jackson and Calhoun Counties. He also served on former Lansing mayor David Hollister’s Blue Ribbon Committee to make the Delta GM plant a reality, though he’s quick to point out that he came on board after the original decision had been made. Reed has had some hands-on business experience, too, having worked in his uncle’s DeWitt grocery store early on, as well as in his dad’s insurance business on Main Street, still known as Reed Insurance Agency. He sees the township’s biggest challenge right now doing what he calls “infill” at vacant storefronts on Saginaw just west of Waverly, though it’s too early for him to have specific

recommendations. Reed is planning some workshops, the first of which happened May 17 at the Delta Library and focused on how to use social networking sites like Facebook to build your business. Future meetings will depend upon the results from surveys that will reveal what local owners say they need. Reed is also thinking about a starting a business roundtable where owners can discuss problems and develop solutions together. Reed and his wife, Carolyn, an Auto Owners employee and veteran of handbell choirs, raised five children in DeWitt and have six grandchildren and one on the way. Their children are scattered, though one son, Mike, his wife, Meg, and three young grandchildren (Hannah, 6, Owen, 4 and Will, 3) reside in DeWitt. The Reeds are eating their way through the Saginaw construction area, sampling local

DELTA PATROL Wednesday, May 18 • Malicious destruction of property: While the victim was shopping in Kroger, someone put a 3-foot scratch along the passenger side door of her 2001 Chrysler Town and Country. It did not appear to have been caused by a shopping cart. • Larceny from an auto: The back passenger side window of the victim’s 1991 green Yukon was broken out in the Colt Elementary parking lot while she was on a school field trip. A $500 black Coach purse, a $400 topaz ring and $1,000 in cash were taken.

“It gives me a lot of satisfaction to use all the old tools,” he said, adding that he’s not really an artist. In fact, he says he can’t draw at all. Sika can definitely weld, however, and his latest project, which took about 50 hours to complete, is no whimsical caricature. It’s a tree welded from 40 pounds of metal rods taken as scrap from Padnos Iron and Metal. Each piece of its bark, including the knotholes, is a weld, with the texture achieved by using different ranges of heat. Despite his protests, Sika definitely is an artist who says he’s “always looking for new ways to do things” and “never does the same thing twice.” It all started at the Capital Area Career Center when he had to make parts for cars he raced because he couldn’t afford new ones. Eventually the Mason High School grad wound up with so much scrap that he couldn’t use it up fast enough. and trashing it would never have entered his mind.

Dan’s Story

Troy Sika in his cubbyhole of a workspace at Westside Car Care. The antlers in the upper left will be used as a model for creating a pair in metal for one of Sika’s sculptures. MARY JO WHITE / LCN

Sika is looking forward to a Scrapfest contest in Lansing’s Old Town during the Sun and Moon Festival this summer. Eighteen teams will have one hour to collect up to 500 pounds of scrap metal from Friedland Industries, then create a finished sculpture by welding, brazing, forging or bolting it together. Team Sika will include wife Sandra, 17-year-old daughter Carley, a Waverly senior, and 8-year-old son Griffin, a Windemere View student. Their sculpture will be created next to Westside Car Care at the end of Lentz Court and hauled to Old Town for

judging on June 24. “I’m happy to help,” Sandra said of hauling scrap at Friedland, adding that her husband has been wanting to enter the contest for a long time, but “something always came up.” In the meantime, Sika continues to create in a cubbyhole of a workspace at his shop between oil changes and repair jobs. He hasn’t decided to sell any of his works yet, not sure how to price them. But if some do sell eventually, he knows exactly what the money could buy: better metal fabricating and cleanup equipment.

I was exhausted all the time. My brain just did not work right. I was gaining weight despite a healthy diet. I was losing strength & muscle tone despite going to the gym. Younger coworkers were getting promotions instead of me. I even lost interest in sex. My doctor told me I was depressed and recommended another prescription medication. I saw Dr. Wycoff at the Wycoff Wellness Center. Dr. Wycoff took time to listen to my concerns and performed a thorough physical. Dr. Wycoff obtained a complete battery of tests and determined I had low testosterone, other hormone imbalances and important nutrient deficiencies.

I started on a program of bioidentical hormone replacement with testosterone gel, changed my eating and began the correct supplements. I lost weight, my brain fog cleared, my strength improved and well, let’s say my wife is happy again! Dr. Wycoff and the Wycoff Wellness Center helped me get by life back.

They changed my life!

Budget decisions not easy but we did our best T

o the Residents of the 71st House District: Last week the Michigan Legislature fulfilled its responsibility to the people by completing the 2011-12 Fiscal Year budget. This budget includes a reduction in government spending of approximately $1.1 billion, while at the same time provides funding for essential government functions such as public safety, schools, Medicaid, state and local government operations, and more. Nearly three months ago, Gov. Snyder proposed some drastic changes to Michigan’s tax structure and significant reforms to many publicly-funded programs. Based on the information I had, I felt many of these proposed changes would have placed too significant of a burden on our most vulnerable citizens. Since then, I have held several town hall meetings, met with all of my school districts, and gathered

GUEST COLUMN Deb Shaughnessy input from constituents to consider as we deliberated the various budgets. My colleagues and I have worked tirelessly to come up with alternatives to the governor’s proposal that would lessen the impact on our residents. Unlike the federal government, that can print more money and go deeper into debt, the state is required to pass a balanced budget and this Legislature did it, and did it in record time, with no government shutdown. During the past decade, Michigan lost population, hundreds of thousands of jobs, and our school enrollment has declined. The amount of tax revenue lost as a result is staggering, and has forced legislators and Michigan’s families

to make some tough decisions. I took no pleasure in making spending cuts and have had some sleepless nights, but tough times require tough decisions. I realize there are some individuals and groups who don’t agree with some of the decisions we made, but I hope my motivation is not questioned. My family and I continue to make sacrifices to serve the people of the 71st House District and I will always do my best to make decisions that are in the long-term best interest of the state. This is the type of leadership our children and grandchildren deserve. It is an honor to be a public servant and I look forward to continuing working side-by-side with you as we return our state to greatness once again.

Timely Tips for Hiring Remodelers Red Flags For Identifying the Unprofessional Remodeler Doesn’t have a license or insurance. All remodelers should be able to demonstrate evidence of both. Doesn’t write contracts. Without a clear written plan, it’s difficult to know what work you are both agreeing to complete. Expectations should be agreed to in writing. Requires payment in full prior to starting the job. It’s reasonable for your contractor to ask for payment up front to purchase materials for your job. Shady contractors demand full payment and may leave with the money. Vastly underbids other contractors. If a bid is way lower than everyone else’s it may indicate inexperience or a method of cutting costs that severely affects quality. Cannot provide references. Professional remodelers will always be able to provide the names and phone numbers of past customers. How to Evaluate A Home Remodeler’s References

16 JUNE 2011

PARADE OF HOMES

Before you sign a contract with a home remodeler, ask them to share with you the names and phone numbers of customers they have worked with in the past.

New dean of students named at middle school DELTA TWP. - At the May 9 Waverly School Board meeting, Jeremiah Baynes was approved to become the 2011-2012 Waverly Middle School Dean of Students replacing Becky McQuillan who has requested to return to the classroom. Baynes began his teaching career in 2001 at Waverly Middle School teaching Social Studies. This past school year he was assigned a second grade classroom at Elmwood. “I am excited to be a part of the tremendous things that are happening at the middle school,” Baynes said. “They have made amazing gains in MEAP scores and school climate. The staff there, as in every Waverly building, is very dedicated to providing the best education possible. I am proud to be a part of their team.” Baynes holds a bachelor’s from Spring Arbor University and a master’s in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College. He and his wife, Lindy, have two children, Emma and Ellie. “We are fortunate to have a teacher of the caliber of Mr. Baynes join the middle school administrative team. The efforts made at the middle school this year have been above and beyond,” said superintendent Debra Jones. “Mr. Baynes will join Mr. Moreno and the middle school staff in continuing to provide a quality education for our 7th and 8th graders.”

By Bryan Durbin STAFF WRITER The International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any and all guitars. Those that do bring in their guitars will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their items looked at by a specialist. With the help of these IVGCA members, offers will be made to those that have vintage and modern guitars. Those made before 1970 are most valuable. All guitars will be examined and purchased including vintage guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, any and all other types of musical instruments. Those that decide to sell their items will be paid on the spot.

June 5, 2011

If you are like a lot of people, you might have an old Vintage Guitar lying around. If you have ever wondered what it’s worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell it, if you choose. Vintage guitars could be worth a lot according to the International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association also known as IVGCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for Vintage Guitars, Banjos, Acoustic Guitars and even Drum Sets for their collections. If they are rare enough, one could be worth over $100,000 according to David Mcintosh, Vintage Guitar Collector and IVGCA member. One 1960 Gibson Les Paul went for $100,000 to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable guitars are stashed away in attics, closets, basements, or in a garage around the country. The IVGCA and its collectors have organized a traveling event in search of all types of Vintage Guitars and Instruments. “Even common guitars can be worth a significant amount due to high collector demands,” says Mcintosh. These collectors are seeking the rarest guitars including Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Rickenbacker. These guitars always bring big premiums according to the IVGCA. While the IVGCA’s specialty is guitars, they are also examining other instruments, including drum sets, banjos, flutes, clarinets, etc. The IVGCA says, “You never really know what you have until your item is evaluated by a specialist.” Whatever kind of instrument you may have, bring it in to our specialist. Think about it. You could walk away $100,000 richer!” LJ-0100097306

So, whether you have one instrument you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If you’re lucky, you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun.
