Grand Ledge

Independent

By ALAN MILLER alanmiller@lsj.com

GRAND LEDGE — The first amendment to the constitution guarantees citizens the right to “petition the government for a redress of grievances.” At the last meeting of the Grand Ledge Board of Education, Stephen Woods decided to do exactly that. “We got screwed is the way we feel,” he said. A year ago, Woods’ two children attended Greenwood Elementary School, approximately one and a half miles from Greenwood Elementary School. Facing a multi-million dollar projected deficit, the school board voted to consolidate five elementary schools into four, and two middle schools into one, resulting in the closure of Greenwood. Woods’ children now attend Wacousta Elementary School, six miles and a 10 minute drive away by car, but a 45 minute bus trip each morning and 50 to 70 minutes each afternoon, with stops in four different town-

Long bus rides dilemma for parents, schools ships because of the bus routing. In order to increase efficiency, the school district attempts to use their buses as close to their full capacity as possible. Elementary students must sit three to a seat, which requires students to put backpacks on their laps and makes homework on the bus impossible, Woods said. Instead of reading and doing homework, Woods said, his 6-year-old son spends the ride time “learning lessons of the world” from the 12 year-olds who share his ride time. Grand Ledge School Superintendent Steve Matthews is sympathetic to the Woods’ concerns, and promised to look at possible changes, but said his ability to act is limited. “I know the parents don’t want to hear this, but they do fit within the existing board policy,” Matthews said. Grand Ledge bus policy puts a limit of 60 minutes on student bus rides in norSee Bus/page 3

Bad day turns good

G.L. woman wins $1-million prize By ALAN MILLER alanmiller@lsj.com

GRAND LEDGE — For Julie Laughlin, a Grand Ledge retiree, a small annoyance turned into a major life changer. It was one of those annoying popups that litter your computer screen when you are trying to do something else on line. Ordinarily Laughlin, like most net surfers, hits the ‘DELETE’ button and moves on. For some reason, she didn’t for a pop-up ad from Publisher’s Clearing House, and on a whim she entered their contest. “I didn’t buy any magazines, but I bought a bag of grass seed,” she said. “I have this spot in my back yard that just won’t grow grass, and they had this grass seed that is supposed to be really fast.” Like many people these days, Laughlin, a retired secretary from the state Department of Education, had been experiencing financial pressures. “I was having a lot of problems financially, and trying to decide if I was going to keep my home or let it go,” she said. And on Tuesday, Dec. 2, after a string of bad days, she had a very good day. Laughlin was in a Grand Rapids hospital keeping her cousin company following surgery when the Prize Pa-

mal weather. Shortening the time limit in that policy could only be done by adding more routes, drivers and buses, said Chief Finance Officer Tom Goodwin, and he said the Grand Ledge district’s transportation costs are already among the highest in the state, primarily due to geography. With schools being graded based on standardized test scores, and facing heavy penalties if students fail to perform on those tests, there is pressure to put more resources into teaching, and districts are forced to take a hard look at any expenditures outside of the classroom. Transportation budgets are taking a hit across the state. Longer bus rides and full buses are not unique to Grand Ledge, said Karen Losch, Executive Director of the Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation, which represents school transportation directors across the state. “Every school district in the state of Michigan is trying to maximize their ridership,” she said. “The days of short bus runs and door-to-door pickup are probably over unless we can find some magic money somewhere.” When the Grand Ledge school board approved the LJ-0100058897

Stephen Woods speaks to the Grand Ledge school board about his concerns over long bus rides for his children. Between the closing of a nearby elementary school and board policy allowing rides of up to an hour, Woods’ two children must spend much longer on buses than last year. school closings and revised attendance boundaries, they realized it would not be popular with parents. “I think this is a rotten idea, but there is no way around it,” board Vice President Linda Wasyk said. “We are making the best of a really crummy situation.” Grand Ledge Schools, like all other public schools, receive no extra money outside of their basic foundation allowance to cover

pupil transportation. However, due to factors outside of their control, transportation costs vary widely. The largest issue is geography. Compact school districts, such as East Lansing and Waverly, with less than 20 square miles, are able to provide transportation at a cost of approximately two percent of their revenue, and students enjoy relatively short bus rides.

GRAND LEDGE - The mission of the Grand Ledge Shopping Tour is to provide new school clothing for the needy elementary children of the Grand Ledge School district. The group is now recognized as a Tax deductible charity by the IRS. The Shopping Tour this year will be held Dec. 15. The businesses, organizations, schools and generous citizens of the Grand Ledge area join together to make sure the needy children have a happy Christmas.

A video clip of what happened when she arrived is available on line at www.pchtv.com. Laughlin is still digesting how her life will change. “I’m going to take it slowly,” she said. But it is already clear her life will be different. “I have already had a call from a girl I went to high school with in 1967.” Laughlin, who enjoys entering handmade items in the St. Michael’s annual craft show and spending time with her three grandsons, has made no plans for major changes in her life, but she said it is beginning to sink in

how things have changed. “Yesterday morning (before all this happened) I was thinking ‘what am I going to do with my money,’ and today I’m thinking ‘what am I going to do with my money,’ but it’s completely different,” she said. Friends and neighbors said they could not have thought of someone more deserving. Feighner described her as “A very kind, caring grandmother, and a good neighbor.” In the spring, Laughlin hopes to use her PCH.com purchase to fix that bare spot in her back yard, but for now, “I have it sitting right here.

EAST LANSING, MI | Some things in life have easy solutions. Hungry? Eat. Tired? Sleep. Bored? Gosh, who could be bored?! Lose something? …Now that can be tougher. Any kind of loss can cause frustration, or regret, or pain. But some types of loss impact our lives profoundly--like the loss of a loved one, the loss of your health, or the loss of one of your senses-your hearing, for instance. With the holiday season approaching, why not do something about that loss? Consider it a holiday gift to yourself. Imagine hearing your children, grandchildren, or great grandchildren without constantly asking them to repeat something. Think about hearing the sounds of the holidays again—the oven timer when the cookies or turkey are done, the carolers at the door, TV specials, and don’t forget the wonderful sounds of holiday music! 2<9 :57G =F& <95E=A; ?BFF 75A 69 8=:,7H?G to face.

Roast Sandy Sipes? No way

GRAND LEDGE - We’ve all attended retirement parties or parties where people who were leaving one position for another or another town for another were given a final send-off with a roast. People would get their final shot at their co worker or opponent and all usually in good fun. I say in good fun because if you watch our political campaign adds you’ll find not too many smiles on any person being introduced to another party. Well, three weeks ago at the Cole-Briggs 48 American Legion post about 100 people came together to “roast” long-time athletic secretary Sandy Sipes. One by one past and present coaches spoke of Sandy’s 42 years in office and her never ending presence and compassion for those surrounding her.

What a lousy roast. Just kidding. What was really shown was that even though many of those who spoke and tried, none including myself, could come close to “roasting” Sandy. John Krupa and Pat O’Keefe, whose tongues have been razor sharp over the years, couldn’t speak anything but positives about her. Deb Traxinger, the emcee, who helped to organize the party passed the microphone to any who wanted to give one last testimony of just what Sandy has meant to them over the years. Grand Ledge coaching legends who had returned for the evening spoke. Jim Brandt. Kim Spalsbury. Garth Barrett were among the noted. Sipes began her 42 year career at the high school while a student there in the late 1960s. Eventually she would be promoted from a part time student employee

to a full time member of the secretarial ranks. “I still remember being called into the office and thinking that I was going to be done,” said Sipes. “Instead Mr.Beagle (Ken Beagle the former superintendent of schools.) asked me if I was interested in working full time. I had a full time job right out of high school and just stayed on from there until my retirement.” What Sipes has meant to the athletic department cannot be fully calculated in wages. Over the years Sandy became the internal works of all of the high school athletes. During her tenure she worked for 10 former athletic directors including Dave Porter, Pete Rozich, Tom Drahnak to name a few and Gary Boyce, the latest coworker for the past quarter of a century. Perhaps the biggest laugh of the evening came when Gary Boyce saluted her for

her efforts and was followed by his wife Pam who said “I was the other woman for 25 years. My husband spent more time with her more than me.” Indeed that was true as the mountains of paper work over the years piled higher and higher. I for one can attest that whenever I needed any information about a student athlete I would call Sandy. More often than not she would have the answer within a minute. If not she would get back with me within a short time frame often helping me make my deadlines with little effort. She was a life saver for me. Not only was she the game saver for me, every coach that spoke of Sandy talked of how she had been so instrumental in their coaching success. Sandy was the “Radar O’Reilly” of Grand Ledge

athletics. Her efforts afforded many coaches the opportunity to do what they were hired to do and that’s to coach. She took care of much of the rest including rosters, physical forms and eligibility reports. And she always seemed to do so with such speed and accuracy that made her such a valuable asset to every single coach. As each coach told his or her story it became clear that nobody could find much to roast Sandy about but rather tell of her major role in their success as coaches. Not only did Sandy do so much for athletics she also did so much more for kids who needed help, either emotionally or economically, with a hug or with a pat on the back and offering words of encouragement to those less fortunate. Each year around Thanksgiving a giving tree

was set up by her athletic office. Just before the Christmas break gifts would surround the office, all with her coordinating efforts. Because of her endless efforts kids who might have had few gifts if any received gifts because of her. She was instrumental in the kids shopping tour held each year. When it came time for Sandy to speak she spoke softly and with much humbleness and also from her heart. One of life’s accomplishments that she never completed was that of becoming a teacher. “I always wanted to be a teacher. That was my dream come true,” Sipes said as she teared up. “I always admired the teachers who have done so much for our kids. I wanted to be like them.” With that statement came several people responding back, “Sandy you did.” Sandy Sipes might have never fulfilled her dream of becoming a college gradu-

ate or a certified teacher. But in the end there isn’t a person associated with education that wouldn’t call her a teacher. Sandy was so much more than a teacher. Sandy was a mentor, a den mother, a wonderful secretary and a very dedicated employee. Sandy was a spokesperson, a game saver and a coaches safety net. And perhaps most of all, Sandy Sipes was a true friend, a true friend to the entire community and we as a community are so forever indebted to her efforts. Thanks Sandy, you’ve been a great teacher. You’ve taught us all something that one can’t earn with a college degree. Through your efforts you’ve shown an entire community what compassion and dedication, love and just simply being a great person is all about. And, I for one, publicly salute you! And the line behind me is long!

Growing Pains Think about this for a moment though......

December 5, 2010

So here you are. Your child is crying his eyes out, usually at bedtime, with what seems to be to indescribable pains in his/ her legs. Your heartstrings have had it and you have most likely tried all the standard parent remedies such as walking, reading, hot towels, cuddling, massaging the legs, all to no avail. The pains still persist. Eventually your child finally falls asleep from shear exhaustion and you simply dread a repeat performance the next day. Finally, out of pure frustration, you seek professional help only to be told that it is simply ”growing pains”, and that “your child will eventually grow out of it.” Concerned and worried parents often hear such bizarre comments. The sad truth is that many parents actually believe that to be the case. You were probably told that your child’s legs hurt because the bones, ligaments and muscles are developing and a little pain is a normal part of the process. Apparently all these tissues and bones all grow differently and should cause pain. This has always been traditionally explained as a normal part of childhood. Many concerned parents have believed this theory for years because at first glance, it seems fairly sound. It appears to be acceptable and after all, parents are not trained as doctors and so we are literally sold on the idea that it should hurt to grow. This becomes an accepted part of childhood - a rite of passage. Nonsense! LJ-0100057527

When did it ever hurt to grow? Is this really a “normal” part of childhood as we have been taught to believe? And why only the legs? Don’t the arms, the nose, the fingers and all the other parts of body also grow? Why don’t they hurt? You are now beginning to see, that the explanations most parents are given are not only untrue but also illogical. If that is the case then, what is the real reason of these pains? The vast majority of children I see complaining of growing pains are in their very active formative years, most being between six and fifteen years old. The sudden jars, bumps and lumps of vigorous play, participation in sports, etc. often produce stress on the spine and cause the vertebrae to become subluxated. These subluxations affect the way certain nerves control the function of your child’s legs, knees, feet, etc. In adults this is called sciatica - pain in the legs. Even the internal organs can be affected, creating a plethora of difficulties ranging from abdominal cramps, diarrhea and/or constipation, to Colitis, Crohn’s disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, etc. Consider this, those of you who are bothered by low back pain and leg pain as adults most likely also experienced “growing pains” when you were little. You may not have realized that by

having your subluxation corrected as a child, may very well have eliminated what you are experiencing today. If your child is experiencing pains in the legs, or “restless legs,” or any of the problems I have mentioned above, a visit to your family chiropractor should be a top priority.

Ethan Childs, DC

One thing you should keep in mind is that pain is a warning. It is the body’s way of letting us know that something is not right. If your child is complaining, please remember that there is a reason for it.

GRAND LEDGE - The Grand Ledge First United Methodist Church , 411 Harrison St., is offering a special service, “The Longest Night” Friday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. This service recognizes that the Advent and Christmas season can be a painful time for some. It may be the first holiday without a loved family member or good friend. Everyone needs space and time to acknowledge sadness and concern, and to know that we are not alone. This is the reason for offering the special “Longest Night” service. It is a service of prayers, scripture and music that acknowledges God’s presence for those who mourn, for those who struggle – and that God’s word comes to shine light in the darkness.

In December 2009, Preston retired from a telephone company after 36 years.

“Preston had planned on finding another job but in Michigan’s economy, it would be difficult” explained Dorothy, “So we began looking for other opportunities, we came across Home Helpers and thought it was something we could be good at. We could employ some individuals while helping families needing help with their

aging parents.” Home Helpers of Eaton County is based in the Childs’ home. They currently employ 10 caregivers to meet the needs of their clients requiring extra care and support to maintain their maximum independence. Home Helpers is not limited to in-home care of seniors but also provides an array of services to individuals needing recuperative and continuing care as well as new moms and developmentally disabled. The care providers at Home Helpers can provide one-on-one care and companionship to those in need from a few hours to the whole day. Services include but are not limited to: day-to-day assistance wit household chores, rides to the doctor’s of-

fice, errands, activities for the mind and body such as interactions with a client’s personal hobby or interests. Morning wake-ups, bathing, dressing, cooking and help getting ready for bed at night and locking the house. The Childs also offer Direct Link to clients, a Personal Emergency Response System, (help at the touch of a button) as well as a medication reminder unit.

State arts grant to fund downtown mural

GRAND LEDGE - The Grand Ledge DDA, in an effort spearheaded by board member Terrance Augustine, has been awarded Rural Arts Grant from the Michigan Economic Developemnt Corp. to fund a mural project that will engage Grand Ledge residents in the arts. The community-at-large will be engaged and led in mural team painting based on designs selected through a public mural design contest. Entrants will submit their interpretation and drawing in response to the theme: “This is the Heart and Art of Grand Ledge.” The completed murals will be created on eight 5’ x 10’ panels and will be installed on the east-facing wall of the building overlooking Fitzgerald Field. “This is an opportunity to add another gem to the Downtown, which will compliment the newly redone ball field, the river walk, and

the island. I am excited to see what our community artists will conjure up” said Augustine. Entry forms, for mural ideas are available at Grand Ledge City Hall, Ledge Craft Lane, Piece of Mine Pottery, and Lanjopoulos Chiropractic Center. There is also a downloadable online form on the city website www.grandledge.com. All skill levels are encouraged to enter the submission contest. Tony Hendrick, a professional artist and Grand Ledge resident, will serve as project lead. Hendrick extends this open invitation: “Creating art was supposed to be fun ... right? Developing artists, established artists, closet artists, or ‘I-don’t-know-ifI’m-any-good” artists can all bring back the fun by sharing their art in a BIG way on a BIG wall right here in Grand Ledge!” Participants are being asked to submit designs

based on the following questions: What is your favorite place in Grand Ledge? What is your favorite experience in Grand Ledge? What is your favorite outdoor activity or sport in Grand Ledge? What is your favorite memory in Grand Ledge? The project supports Grand Ledge’s tradition of being a destination for arts and crafts creators and patrons. Its value in supporting and reinforcing that tradition is threefold: 1) the engagement of the local community in creating and celebrating art 2) positioning Grand Ledge as an arts community - a fact that leads to increased residential and tourism profiles and 3) highlighting and showcasing community art in a prominent location as a lasting community point of involvement, investment, and pride. For further information, contact Tony Hendrick at 517-627-5958.

Letters to the editor Sen.-elect Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, wrongly labeled the Earned Income Tax Credit a “welfare giveaway” during an interview on WKAR’s “Off the Record.’’ Let us set the record straight. The EITC is a state tax credit that is given only to those who work for a living. It is not a handout. In fact it is helping more than 16,000 working families in Sen.-elect Jones’ district in Allegan, Barry and Eaton counties. Nearly one in seven filers in the senator-elect’s district claimed the EITC. It is modeled after the federal EITC. Those who qualify for the federal EITC also qualify for a state credit that is 20 percent of the federal credit. One big fan of the EITC was President Ronald Reagan. “Giving a leg up to those struggling to move up is what America is all about,’’ Reagan said. It is also shown to be an effective way to stimulate the economy. Sen.-elect Jones would deny the credit to nearly 17,000 working families in his district and in turn, harm small businesses in Grand Ledge and elsewhere in the 24th District. Sharon Parks President & CEO Michigan League for Human Services

or to Nov. 17, board meeting, that the board change the policy regarding health insurance coverage to include the spouses and dependents of all board members and fulltime employees of the township. NOTE: I pointed out to the board that if this policy were implemented, the cost to the township at approximately $14,500 for seven board members and their families would be over $100,000 a year. 3. Jan. 19, 2009 BOT meeting, Board approved amendment to eliminate health care provisions for trustees and part-time supervisor and scheduled an adoption vote for March meeting at which it passes. 4. March 17, 2009 – present It came to my attention shortly after the March meeting that in lieu of full health care coverage, the other trustees

and the supervisor were being paid health care benefit reimbursement. 5. I conducted a survey with 70 townships in Michigan asking if their trustees receive any health care, pension, life insurance, retirement or other benefits. Results are as follows: No health care benefits: 65 townships Some health care benefits: 5 townships SUMMARY: At present, our trustees and supervisor can each receive a maximum of $4,500 reimbursement in lieu of health care insurance. If you do not agree with this, make your voice heard at future township board meetings. Dale Westrick Watertown Township Trustee

Sports Lady Comets rally to down Portland in season opener By ARV PETITT

coachphoto@yahoo.com

GRAND LEDGE - Grand Ledge Lady Comets varsity basketball coach Dave Jones was elated after his team’s season opening comefrom-behind win at Portland last Tuesday evening. And, rightfully so. Grand Ledge erased a 10 point first half Portland lead in the second half and went on to win 47-41. “This is one of the biggest wins in girls basketball in 15 years,”Jones stated. “The way these girls came back was just amazing.” What was even more amazing about the win was the Comets calm at the free throw line. The girls hit 16 of 16 free throws in the fourth period and 21 of 26 for the game. After taking an 8-5 lead after the first period of play the Raiders rallied for 21 second period points including four three point baskets to take a 26-19 half-time lead. Grand Ledge began to chip away at the Portland lead and cut the lead to 30-26 heading into the final period of play. Senior guard Kasey Trierweiler tied the game at 33-33 with 6:31 to play on a three point basket. Portland scored on the following trip down the court. Junior foward Ashley Priest answered with two free throws to tie the game back up at 35-35. The Raiders again went ahead, 37-35 before Trierweiler tied the game back up at 37-37 with 2:50 to play as she sank two free throws. Senior center Maddie Johnston fouled out with 2:02 to play and the Comets defense stiffened. Johnston scored 4 points, all in the first period. Portland junior Taylor Roe hit one of two free throws to put Portland up 38-37 following Johnston’s foul. Trierweiler answered on Comets next trip down the floor as she calmly dropped in both ends of a one-and-one to put The Comets up by one, 39-38 with 1:59 to play. Senior guard Kelly Gwardzinski confidently hit both ends of a two

After a Portland miss junior forward Krysta Kramer answered with two more free throws and a 43-38 lead with 41 seconds remaining. Portland’s Chelsi Scott scored inside with 25 seconds to play and added a free throw to tighten the game to 43-41. Gwardzinski was fouled with 16 seconds to play and again swished both free throws to give the Comets breathing room and a four point lead, 45-41. Sophomore center Beth Boman sealed the win with two more free throws with two seconds to play

before the final buzzer sounded.

Great comeback

Tyler Park Baker signs with Spring Arbor

By ARV PETTIT

coachphoto@yahoo.com

GRAND LEDGE - After graduating in the spring from Grand Ledge, Tyler Park Baker will become a third generation Baker to head to college on an athletic scholarship. Following in the athletic footsteps of his grandfather, the late Park Baker who played football at Michigan State University (1956-59) and his father Kent who played baseball at Ferris State University (1986-89), Tyler P. will attend Spring Arbor University on a baseball scholarship after his official signing on Oct. 29 in front of family and friends. Tyler After contemplating sevBaker eral other offers from a number of schools Baker decided on Spring Arbor, a member of the NAIA, for a number of reasons. “I liked the new buildings, smaller class sizxes, the way the team greeted me and treated me as well as how the coaches treated me. I liked their stadium, clubhouse, workout facilities and the field house. Everything just felt right to me,” said Baker. “The NAIA has a roster of 23 as opposed to the NCAA roster size of 35. There’s a better chance that I’ll play earlier and more often.” Baker’s statistics to date make him

a prime candidate to get playing time with his talents. Tyler has been a threeyear starter for Pat O’Keefe’s Comets and has played shortstop and primarily first base. Baker was an All-Conference selection in both his freshman and sophomore years. Last year (2010) he was All-Conference CAAC Blue, All-Area Dream Team, All-District, All-Regional and Division I All-State Second Team, one of a handful of juniors to be named to the team. His 2010 statistics included a .545 batting average (72 for 132), 60 runs scored, 48 RBIs, 16 doubles, 9 home runs, and a slugging percentage of .871. He also had a fielding average of .975. He pitched 5.2 innings allowing just two hits and one walk while striking out 6. Not only are his baseball numbers big his classroom stats are equally as high with a grade point average of 3.83 and Academic All State honors as well. Spring Arbor head coach Sam Riggleman was in attendance and witnessed the signing as well as secured the signing with his own signature. Riggleman, a nine-year head coach at Spring Arbor and also the athletic director was elated with the signing. “At our school and in our program we try to find young men who have excellent character as well as being excellent athletes. Ty certainly fits that profile,” Riggleman said. Riggleman will be honored this spring

The New

Arv Pettit

Tyler P. Baker of Grand Ledge signing his letter of intent to play baseball at Spring Arbor. after being named one of two recipients of the American Baseball Coaches Association Ethics on Coaching Award. Riggleman sports a 207-99 record as the head coach at Spring Arbor. He holds a career coaching record of 853-548-2 as a collegiate head coach. “I’m excited to get going,” said Baker. “Spring Arbor has been to the National playoffs five years in a row. Two of those years they made it to the NAIA World Series Championship game. Coach Riggleman is in two Hall of Fames and one of only 10 caoches with over 700 wins.

His assistant coach has been a major league scout. And the players all commented at how close knit of a family that the team was.” So the ink is dry and Baker will play one more spring as a Comet as they seek a state crown. Then after graduating he will head to Spring Arbor to work on his degree in accounting as well as continuing his already brilliant baseball career. Chances are we haven’t heard the last from Tyler Park Baker. And neither have his opponents.

Icers take slice of Thanksgivng Classic

By SCOTT YOSHONIS syoshonis@lsj.com

MUSKEGON -- For the second time in the past three years, and the fourth time since 2005, the Grand Ledge Waverly hockey team won the annual Andy Hanichen Thanksgiving Classic, taking the 2010 title with a 4-1 win over host Muskegon ReethsPuffer in the championship game on Nov. 27. Previously, the CometWarriors advanced to the ti-

tle tilt with a 6-2 win over West Ottawa on Nov. 26. The weekend victories improved the team’s record to 4-0 for the young season. Angelo Barnes opened the scoring in the semifinal, with a goal with 1:13 remaining in the first period, assisted by Brad Kurzynowski, to give GL-W a 1-0 lead at the first intermission. In the second period the Comet-Warriors exploded with four goals, beginning just 18 seconds in, when Trev-

en Fech converted a beautiful pass from Barnes. Drew Isaacson then scored his first goal as a Comet-Warrior on a blast from the blueline at 10:35, assisted again by Barnes. Tyler Wise found the back of the net on a slapshot just inside the post assisted by Vince Gessler and Fech notched his second at 4:10 of the second period. GL-W’s only goal of the third came with .5 seconds remaining as Isaacson scored his second of the game on a

solo effort. On Saturday’s title game, the Comet-Warriors came out strong scoring, at 14:20 of the first period on a goal by Dylan Deatsman. The special teams killed off three penalties in the first period, but not the fourth, as

chunk of the period. But the The CometWarriors used it to their advantage, scoring two shorthanded goals. The first came at 13:45 on a breakaway by Fech assisted by Adam EpSee

In all, the Comet-Warriors successfully killed off 8 penalties in the second period as well as a penalty shot awarded to the Rockets, which was stopped by Austin Hull to keep

the game 3-1 after two periods. In the third the game was played penalty free and the Barnes hit the empty net with 55 seconds to go to seal the win and the tournament title. Hull made 32 saves to preserve the Championship.

Delta Township Walter "Spike" F. Bierkamp passed away very "peacefully" on November 22, 2010 with his family at his side. Spike was born February 9, 1914 in Detroit, MI. He moved to Lansing and attended Michigan State College. On September 14, 1940, he married Roberta Ann Starkweather, daughter of Forest and Kathleen Starkweather of Grand Ledge. During World War II, he worked at Diamond-Reo Truck Plant for Nash-Kelvinator, which had been converted into a Military Defense Plant. After World War II, he became a sales manager for the Sturm Tool Supply Company in Lansing. He later became the sole owner and President. He was on the Board of Directors of the Ingham County Unit of the American Cancer Society for several years and was president from 1967-1968. He also became a member of the Country Club of Lansing in 1955. In 1974, he sold his business and retired. He and his wife enjoyed their second home on "little" Glen Lake near Traverse City. He enjoyed playing golf, fishing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and many evening beach campfires with his family. He was also an avid MSU "Spartan" sports fan. Thanks to his nephew, Brig. Gen.

New parks director full speed ahead By ALAN MILLER alanmiller@lsj.com

GRAND LEDGE — Apparently, John Greenslit thinks retirement is overrated. He started his latest job as director of the Eaton County Parks Department on Nov. 1, replacing Dan Patten who left to head the Barry County Parks. Greenslit, of Delta Township, said he ended up in the director’s job after interviewing for a volunteer position on the Eaton County Parks Commission. He had been semi-retired, working part time for First Tee, an organization which promotes golfiing for young people. Now in his third week, “being overwhelmed is an understatement,” said Greenslit. He said he is impressed with the state of the park system. “Amazing stuff the department has been able to do being so shorthanded and having its budget difficulties,” he said. Greenslit gives much of the credit to the department’s staff. “We have just outstanding support people. They look for work instead of running away from it,” he said. “They may ruin the whole image of county employees.” He comes to Eaton County after a long career in the field of parks and recreation. Greenslit began working for the South Dakota governor’s office, where he headed up efforts to develop the Lewis and Clark Trail, which links St. Louis to Astoria, Oregon, following the route of the original explorers. In 1972, he accepted a position as head of the Michigan Recreation and Parks Association, an umbrella organization for the 180 local parks departments and recreation professionals across Michigan. Among his achievements while he was there, he said, was helping to push through the initiative creating Michigan’s Conservation Trust Fund, which receives revenue from oil and gas leases, earmarked for the purchase and development of land for public recreation. In his spare time, he worked as a coach and athletic official, including officiating during the Atlanta Olympic games. Now that he is here, Greenslit said he does not plan to sit back and be a passive leader of the department. He plans to continue efforts to build partnerships and improve efficiencies, along the line of the recent agreement between the department and the city of Grand Ledge for shared services. One example he cited was the possibility of asking local governments in the southern part of the county to help with plowing snow in the parks there, rather than

Greenslit, who has plans to continue developing programs and facilities, began the job in early November, replacing Dan Patten, who left to head the Barry County Parks Department. having to drive the parks department’s equipment across the county to plow a half mile of road. He also expects to try to seize opportunities to develop new facilities and programs, where possible. “I’d like to see a county play day here where school kids all come to the parks for sack races and three legged stuff and softball throws,” he said. “It’s really big in the metro area. The Huron Clinton Authority does it for schools in their five county area.” He hopes to connect with Walk Michigan, and get involved with some of the local hospitals in wellness programs. Another example he cited is continuing efforts to create a public recreation area out of the large lake created from the former Crandall sand and gravel operation at M-50 and Stewart Road, between Eaton Rapids and Char-

lotte. The project is currently on hold, pending completion of a feasibility study and identifying financing, but Greenslit plans to meet with state officials concerning the availability of money from the state’s conservation trust fund. “It may be a 10-year project, but I could see major boating, water based events, great fishing, a swimming beach.” He noted the absence of any quality camping opportunities within 30 miles, and believes it could be a great facility for visitors to the county fairgrounds. Greenslit hopes to continue relationships with the Friends of the Eaton County Parks, and with service organizations such as the Lions and Rotary Clubs, who have been generous to the parks system, he said.
