A new school year begins Students arriving for the first day of classes at Portland’s Oakwood Elementary School displayed a mixture of joy and trepidation after exiting the buses to start the new school year. The children were greeted by members of the school staff.

PORTLAND — The Portland City Council discussed the various projects in the city at its latest meeting, which seemed appropriate considering the meeting took place one day later than normal due to the Labor Day holiday. Among the projects was the Rivertrail extension between Charlotte Highway and Okemos Road near Oakwood Elementary School. Portland city manager Tom Dempsey presented the council with two change orders. The first change order increase the thickness of the asphalt along this portion of the trail from 2 inches to 2.5 inches, increasing the cost of the project by $7,880.

The change order also added the cost of removing and disposing of a concrete foundation that had been found by work crews while clearing the path for the trail. The cost of the removal would add $2,016 to the project’s cost. Dempsey was asked about the thickness of the trail’s asphalt in other areas. “In most cases the asphalt is 2 inches thick,” said Dempsey. “But there are some areas in which it is 3 inches thick because those are areas where we know vehicles will drive across it.” A second change order would add the installation of a water fountain to the project, increasing the cost by $6,100. “Right now the only water fountains that we have along the trail are by the bandshell and by the picnic shelter in Bogue Flats,” said Dempsey. “For this fountain, we would access the water service near See Council/page 3

Emmons selected to fill spot in 33rd Senate race By TOM THELEN tthelen@lsj.com

ALMA — Members of the Republican Party have selected Judy Emmons to replace Brian Calley in the race for the 33rd District State Senate seat. Emmons was selected last week during a Republican Party executive meeting in Alma that included representatives from Ionia, Clinton, Montcalm and Isabella counties. “Judy will serve the citizens of the 33rd Senate District well. Not only has she proven herself a great legislator, but

she is an even better person,” said Clinton County Chairman, Tom Leonard. “Her values will certainly serve the citizens of Clinton, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties well. All four counties are united behind Judy”. Emmons spent six years as state representative for the 70th District, which includes Montcalm and northwest Ionia County. Also considered for the nomination were former State Representative Scott Hummel and Michael Trebesh, Calley’s opponent during the 2010 primary election. Calley defeated Trebesh in the primary, but was then selected by

Rick Snyder to be Snyder’s running mate in his campaign for governor. Under Michigan law, a candidate cannot run for two offices. Therefore Calley withdrew from the senate race. Emmons received 82 votes from the committee while Hummel received 37 votes. Trebesh backed out of the race prior to the vote. Also running for the 33rd District State Senate seat are Democratic Party candidate James Hoisington of Stanton and Libertarian Party candidate Joshua Lillie of Greenville.

the cemetery.” Dempsey added that even with the two change orders, the project cost will still be below the amount that the city had set aside for the project. The change orders were approved by the council with both passing by a 3-2 margin. Council members Steve Fabiano and Steve Calley voted against both change orders. “Just because we have money set aside for the project does not mean we should spend it all,” said Fabiano. The council also received the first pay request from Cook Brothers for work completed on the Rivertrail connection project. The pay request for $60,619.77 was approved by the council by a 4-1 vote with Calley casting the “no” vote. “Even though we received grant money for this project, my preference was to use this money for street repairs,” said Calley. “These funds could have been used for Cutler Road.”

Road projects The council also received a pay request from CL Trucking for work completed on the Grape Street reconstruction project. The request for $445,800.27 was unanimously approved by the council. “A lot of work got done on this project during August,” said Dempsey. “We did a walk-through with the engineers and contractor today and anticipate moving forward next month to closing this project out.” Meanwhile, another road project will be starting this week. Dempsey informed the council that the

Divine Highway project will begin on Monday, Sept. 13. “The road will not be closed and there will not be a detour,” said Dempsey. “At least one lane of traffic will be maintained while the work is going on. The contractor will use flaggers to control the traffic so there might be some slight delays for motorists driving in that area.”

Other action The council approved a bid from Cook Brothers to repair damage to a retaining wall at Grand River Avenue and James Street. The cost is estimated at $11,545. Dempsey said the costs associated with the repair will be turned in to the city’s insurance carrier which will seek payment from the insurance company of the driver involved. Council members also approved a settlement with the Portland Federal Credit Union regarding tax assessments for its property at Charlotte Highway and Bridge Street. Photo by Tom Thelen Under the agreement, the true cash value for the property will be set at $829,000 for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010. PFCU Work crews from Cook Brothers of Portland have cleared the path for the filed an appeal with the State Tax Tribu- Rivertrail connection between Charlotte Highway and Okemos Road. The project nal in 2008 when the city assessed the is scheduled to be completed later this month. true cash value at $1,225,500 while the credit union proposed an assessment was $635,000. The council also approved an agreement with the U.S. Geological Survey to fund a streamgaging station in the Grand River at a cost of $7,850. Breathe Better & Live Better The agreement is required under the city’s license through the Federal Energy OARD ERTIFIED IN LLERGY MMUNOLOGY Regulatory Commission to operate the hydroelectric facility.

Section 168.169. This section of the Michigan election laws defines a seldom-used process for the selection of a replacement candidate in cases where duly elected candidates from a primary election are no longer able to run for that office. Under this statute, it was the executive committees of the four counties within the 33rd Senate District that were required to make this important decision. The executive committee of each county is comprised of the most recent primary winner of all county commission and county-wide seats as well as the most recent primary winner for any state office where the candidate resides within the county.

St. Pat students welcome visitor from Haiti Last spring, I wrote about St. Patrick School sponsoring several fundraisers to raise money to assist Sr. Luvia Joseph in Haiti. If you recall, Sr. Luvia runs a school and orphanage in Haiti which were destroyed or badly damaged by the earthquake that struck on Jan. 12. She lost more than 150 students and had to cope with hearing students alive under the rubble, and being unable to St. Patrick reach them. Last week, Sr. Luvia had notes the opportunity to visit Portland and Pewamo to meet Randy the students at St. Pat’s and Hodge St. Joseph Schools, to thank them for all that they did to help. Sister Luvia and her friend, Sister Mary visited the students in their classrooms, telling students how appreciative she is of their generosity, and also letting students know that she prays for them, too. Our students were very

excited to meet Sr. Luvia. They had heard so much about her, it was nice to finally place the name with a face. Sr. Luvia also shared stories of the earthquake. One story involved her hearing a voice telling her to get out of the building she was in. As soon as she was outside and away from the building the earthquake started. She clung to a tree while the ground was shaking apart and buildings were crumbling. Her expressive words made us feel as if we were there with her. Sr. Luvia told our students how blessed they were to have a nice school with big classrooms and all the items vital to learning. She told them that in her school the classrooms are very crowded, and that because of the earthquake, even more students have come to her school. “There will be 50 or more students in each classroom,” she said. She explained that many of those students did not have school supplies or appropriate clothing to wear to school, and the lunch they received at school would be their only meal of the day. Because of the crowded conditions, her school, St. Al-

phonse will run in two shifts. Part of the students will come to school in the morning. They leave around lunch time and another group of students will attend in the afternoon. Sr. Luvia also mentioned she has 71 children in her orphanage. She only has girls in the orphanage as she cannot intermingle children of both genders. These 71 students rely on Sr. Luvia for their survival. She told the students, “It is hard when a boy is brought to the orphanage because I cannot take him in.” Instead she works hard to find another place for him to stay. Finally, Sr. Luvia challenged our students to give vocations serious consideration as a way of life. She talked about the fact that she has been a religious sister for 36 years and has no regrets about her decision. She concluded her visit by asking our students to write to her and asking our staff to come and visit her in Haiti. We let sister know our school and students would continue to pray for her and continue to do our best to raise money to assist her students. Randy Hodge is the administrator at St. Patrick School.

First day of new school year has its rewards The older kids marched up the hill from their buses Being the superintendent of a great school system has its rewards. Two of the things that I enjoy about my full of anticipation, excitement and chatter. Some of job are the interaction with our students and the first the younger students needed a little support, reassurday of school. Last Tuesday brought these two aspects ance and direction. There were no calamities. No crying youngsters, although a couple were sniffling back of my professional life totears. They were comforted by the hand of a caring gether. adult who helped them find their fellow classmates. The I started my 20th school warm welcome of their teacher usually brought smiles year as your superintenSuperintendent’s to their faces. dent at Oakwood Elemencorner I came upon Leann, a second grader, meticulously tary School. Support staff sorting through her new school supplies on the hallway and Principal Lisa Riffle Charles floor in front of her locker. She had new, empty folders, were ready and waiting Dumas for our youngest students to arrive. Parents meandered about guiding/ following their precious youngster to their new classroom. There were a lot of cell phones snapping pictures of smiling faces. A few anxious parents waited by the bus drop-off area just to make sure their little one navigated the bus route properly. They did.

two boxes of crayons, a box of Kleenex, hand sanitizer (which she used while sorting through everything else), a pencil box and her snack stacked neatly in front of her. I sensed that she was a little perplexed. She couldn’t figure out how she was going to carry all of her paraphernalia into her classroom and eagerly accepted my offer to help her out. I grabbed most of the pile, Leann snatched up the rest and off we went in to Ms. Bos’ classroom. Mission accomplished, the year was off to a good start for little Leann. See Dumas/page 7

A lot goes into getting ready for the first day of school. It is a team effort and all went well at Oakwood Elementary School. Everyone was relieved when it was all over. Each youngster found the comfortable place that they will call their own for the rest of the 2010-2011 school year. There were no left-over students or parents wan-

ST. JOHNS — Having trouble installing your child’s car seat? Sparrow Clinton Hospital can help. An active and integral member of the Healthy Communities Coalition, Sparrow Clinton Hospital now provides a monthly car seat fitting station through Capital Area Safe Kids. This program offers low income Clinton County residents free car/booster seats and replacement of damaged or recalled car seats. Recipients must be residents of Clinton County. Children or infants using the seats must be present during the installation to ensure a proper fit. Seats should be installed in the vehicle in which the children will regularly travel. Plan to spend an average of 30 minutes per seat installation. Car seat fittings at Sparrow Clinton Hospital are by appointment only. The car seat fitting station is held on the third Tuesday of each month between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. To schedule an appointment for the Sept. 21 fitting station, call Jackie at (989) 227-3334. — From Sparrow Clinton Hospital

dering about by the time school started. The end of this special school day found me at the middle school helping the rookie sixth graders work their new-found combination locks on their lockers. The pressure was on! The youngsters usually had the right combination but they were being too gentle when it came to wiggling the latch open. We were successful in opening every locker in a timely fashion except for the one young lady who had the right lock combination, but was at the wrong locker. Try as I might, my magic touch obviously did not work, un-

Library offering many youth events this fall Storytime/laptime You can sign your child up for fall story time and lap time until Friday, Oct. 1. The sessions start this week (Sept. 13) and last for eight weeks. Please call (517) 647-6981 ext. 3 or e-mail pdlchildrens @cablespeed.com to sign up. After the start date please bring your child to story or lap time and sign up before the program starts. (We will need your name, your child’s name, the age of your child, and your phone number.) Storytime is for kids ages 3 through 5. The program lasts for about a half hour and while at the library the kids will listen to stories, sing songs and make a craft. Storytimes are on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Please note that we have two sessions on Thursday. Laptime, which starts this Friday, is a program designed for kids 12 to 35 months. It’s approximately 15 minutes long. The routine is similar every week, with songs, stories and finger plays. Teen events Several events for teens have already been scheduled for September. They are: • Anime Night: Anime Night will be held once a month. It is sponsored by the Teen Advisory Board. We watch several episodes of Japanese anime. Parents be aware that most of the anime that is viewed is appropriate for teens and older children. Our next night is scheduled on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. • Spa Night: Teens, your first couple of weeks back to school can be stressful with the adjustment of your schedule. Come to the library on Thursday, Sept. 16, from 6 to 7 p.m. and relax with spa night. We will be creating our own spa products made from natural ingredients. If time allows we will be using them as well. • Lock-In: Our first teen lock-in (grades six through 12) of the school year will be on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 6 to 11 p.m. The doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and close at 6:15 p.m. Sign up starts this Monday, Sept. 15, and you can pre-register until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24.

To pre-register go to the children’s reference desk at the library to sign up and pay the entrance fee. You will be given a permission slip that you must return signed by your guardian to attend the lock-in. All teens must have a permission slip signed by their guardian to enter the library. In case you sign up late or forget you permission slip we will have extra copies at the door. Space is limited so we strongly recommend that you sign up early. Only the first 40 kids to sign up will be allowed entry. At the lock-in there will be video games, crafts, food, board games, and more.

Be sure and wear your swimsuit because you will get wet! Raggedy Ann auction In honor of Raggedy Ann’s 95th birthday, a handmade pair of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls is being offered in a silent auction at the Portland District Library. The proceeds from the auction will be used to purchase parent literature for young special needs children. The dolls are offered as a pair, not individually. When you fill out your form for the silent auction, indicate your name, address, phone number, and the price you would be willing to give for the pair. The dolls are on display in the case at the bottom of the stairs. Friends meeting The Friends of the Library will meet on Tuesday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room. Anyone who has considered being a part of this group, please feel welcome to attend.

The group is small and friendly, and all meetings are over by 8 p.m. Book discussion Jenny Weber of Portland will lead us in a book discussion of the mystery “The Sweetness At The Bottom Of The Pie” by Alan Bradley. The discussion will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room.

Leonard: Law specific on how to replace Calley Continued from page 5

ties that comprise the 33rd Michigan Senate District (Clinton, Ionia, Isabella, and Montcalm) met at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 1, at Alma High School to determine who would be named as Calley’s replacement. State party officials from Lansing conducted the special convention.

During the special meeting, former state representative Judy Emmons (Montcalm) was elected by the four counties to fill the vacancy. The citizens of the 33rd District can be proud of the fact that we will have Brian Calley and Judy Emmons from our district representing our interests in Lansing. Their voices will be heard and they will be in positions where they will play an integral part in moving Michigan forward and restoring responsibility in state

government. During this process some questions were raised. Some would argue that this process is in no way perfect. However, in the end, the citizens of Clinton, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties can be assured that their county executive committees followed the law as written. Tom Leonard is the chairperson of the Clinton County Republican Party

Fox-Elster to have sculpture on display during ArtPrize GRAND RAPIDS — After 20 years and a few bumps in the road, a Portland resident will realize his life-long artistic dream this month. Sean Fox-Elster of Portland will reach his dream with a display in the ArtPrize, which takes place in Grand Rapids from Sept. 22 through Oct. 10. Fox-Elster will display his wood sculpture “Diversity in Balance” at 25 Kitchen + Bar located at 25 Ottawa Ave SW in Grand Rapids. He invites area residents are invited to see his vision of diversity and one world in harmony, and cast your vote. “Diversity in Balance” is the second wood sculpture in a series of sculptures exploring the idea of diversity, which Fox-Elster began to explore this past year. According to Fox-Elster, the wooden sculpture will consist of a sphere, measuring two feet in diameter, balanced on top of a pyramid shape that will be about two to three feet wide at the base and approximately four feet tall. “The sphere represents the reality of diversity in the Courtesy photo world: a rough collection of cultures and peoples tied together by compromise and hope. Sean Fox-Elster of Portland will have his scultpure The base represents the dream of diversity, diverse “Diversity in Balance” on display as part of the elements joined together for a common goal, one world in harmony,” says Fox-Elster. ArtPrize exhibit in Grand Rapids “Balance between the dream and reality of diversity

in our world is maintained by one idea alone, we are all the same species, we are all human,” he added. “Our humanity is our motivation. In our history the greatest acts of love and kindness are committed in the name of humanity. We call aid to suffering countries, ‘Humanitarian aid;’ and offer money, food, and sometimes our lives to try to better their existence. These sacrifices are the ultimate example of our capacity to exist in the dream of diversity. The only way for this dream of diversity to become fully realized is to conclusively recognize the fellowship of our species and to come together. We are all different. We are all unique. We are all human. Embrace the dream.” Fox-Elster first entered Michigan State University 20 years ago to pursue a commercial arts degree, but in a split-second decision chose to change his degree focus out of bad advice received and a fear that he couldn’t make a living out of art. He finally graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social studies seven years later. Yet, he remained unhappy and unfulfilled with his choice. In 2008, Fox-Elster re-entered the university as a studio art major. His artwork has appeared in several exhibitions at MSU; and his first sculpture entry in the Student Expressions contest, “Diversity,” won him an award of $500 and a purchase by MSU’s Diversity Department. This winning sculpture is the model and inspiration for his entry in ArtPrize. — From Sean Fox-Elster

Vaccination;

for Health or Profit? Part II

Vaccination is based on essentially “fooling” the immune system: A “weakened” or killed virus is introduced into the body in the hope that it will stimulate the body to produce defense agents called antibodies which will then be able to protect the individual when the real thing comes along-in theory this makes total sense. Unfortunately, vaccination is plagued with many problems; immunity is not lasting, many people have serious complications, virtually no follow through on vaccine consequences, conflicts of interest, financial gain, just to name a few.

mothers did not have antibodies for measles.

Many parents, as well as the scientific community, are becoming uneasy regarding Vaccination. There is increasing evidence that vaccination shots actually impair the Function of the immune system. According to Howard Weiner, a Harvard immunologist, vaccination actually “skews” the activity of the immune system. He feels that a child’s immune system needs to be “exercised”, otherwise a child may be more susceptible to serious health problems later in life. The childhood diseases, such as measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc., actually exercise a child’s immature immune system. In adults, these diseases can be serious, but in a child, they actually play a very important role. They teach a child’s nervous system how to fight off an infection on its own. This is a good thing! Vaccination, on the other hand, does not exercise the immune system in this manner and may leave your child susceptible to more serious complications later in life. As a matter of fact we are now seeing a dangerous shift in the age groups getting measles, for instance. Children under 1 are coming down with measles which means that they did not obtain proper immunity from their mother’s breast milk. Why? The answer is that those

If you, as a parent, feel that there is something inherently wrong with injecting your child with a foreign, gene-altering Ethan Childs, DC substance, your gut instinct is correct! Recent research indicates that vaccination is responsible for the increasing numbers of autoimmune diseases seen: Everything from diabetes, asthma, autism, AIDS, cancer, etc. See you in two weeks.

If the theory of vaccination was successful there would be no need for “boosters.” Research has found that the body has specific “lines of defense”; ways of handling an invading “bug”. These are your skin and mucous lining, your antibodies, and your white blood cells. All of these need to be mobilized in a very exact sequence in order for your defense system to be most effective. Vaccination by-passes this sequence and as a result, does not give lasting immunity. That is one of the reasons why “boosters” are needed. Consider this: Alaska recently experienced a severe outbreak of measles - all cases occurring in a single high-school, and all among students already vaccinated against measles. As a result, the new CDC

policy is that all students should now receive TWO doses of the measles vaccine. Brilliant!

MDCH advises residents to get flu vaccine LANSING — The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is gearing up for the 2010-2011 influenza season by making special efforts to educate the public about the new universal flu recommendations. The single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year and, for the first time this flu season, it is recommended that everyone 6 months of age and older receive a seasonal flu vaccine. While flu is unpredictable, it’s likely that 2009 H1N1 viruses and regular seasonal viruses will cause illness in the United States this flu season. The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1 virus that caused so much illness last season. “Flu season is on its way and we encourage all Michigan residents over 6 months of age to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Greg Holzman, chief medical executive for MDCH. “The single best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated. Everyone 6 months of age and older - including healthy people -

need to get vaccinated against influenza this year and every year.” MDCH also encourages new parents, health care professionals, and those who have contact with people age 65 and older to get vaccinated to help protect these high-risk individuals. Children in need of a second dose of flu vaccine must be fully protected also because flu spreads easily in classroom settings, and school-aged children often spread influenza to their siblings and family members. Parents are urged to talk to their doctor or health care provider to see if their child needs two doses of flu vaccine this flu season. People should receive a flu vaccine as soon as the vaccine is available in provider offices, pharmacies, local health departments, and other vaccination locations. Flu vaccinations are effective throughout the entire flu season, which can begin as early as October and last as late as May. Vaccine manufacturers expect shipments to be made on-time this year. A record number of doses of flu vaccine - 160 million - are expected to

be produced this flu season and many doses have been shipped out already. There are two types of flu vaccines: • The “flu shot”- an inactivated vaccine (containing killed virus) that is given with a needle. The seasonal flu shot is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people, people with chronic medical conditions and pregnant women. • The nasal-spray flu vaccine -a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses that do not cause the flu (sometimes called LAIV for “Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine”). LAIV is approved for use in healthy people 2-49 years of age who are not pregnant. If parents are concerned because their children do not have health insurance or are only partly insured, they can ask their doc-

tor or local health department about how to get publicly purchased vaccines through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. The VFC program provides vaccines to eligible children and adolescents. Doctors and clinics administer vaccines to children who qualify and the government pays for the immunization. Children from birth through 18 years of age can receive the VFC benefit if they are: 1) on Medicaid; 2) eligible for Medicaid; 3) American Indian or Alaskan Native; 4) are under-insured or do not have health insurance.

Red Cross announces upcoming blood drives LANSING — The American Red Cross closely monitors national and local blood supplies to ensure donations are keeping pace with hospital needs and officials have now issued an urgent call for blood donors. The Red Cross closely monitors national and local blood supplies to ensure donations are keeping pace with hospital need for blood products in order to meet ongoing and emergency patient care. ”There is a critical need for blood donors right now,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Blood Services Region of the Red Cross. “This summer we have had a particularly difficult time recruiting enough blood donors to best serve our hospitals.” Donors with all blood types are needed, but especially those with type O negative. Type O negative donors can make the difference between an adequate blood supply and a shortage because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, and is most readily given to patients in emergency and trauma situations. Every day, more than 39,000 pints of blood are needed for patients in the United States. Blood is used for the treatment of cancer patients, people with blood disorders, premature babies, transplant recipients, trauma victims and more. Each whole blood donation can help save up to three lives. “We urge all eligible individuals to make and keep an appointment to donate blood,” said Jaksa.

PORTLAND — Portland was just over a minute away from their biggest non-league football win in recent memory when Tyler Pierce made a memorable leaping catch in the end zone with 1:17 on the clock against DeWitt. But it was not to be. DeWitt’s Caleb Higbie found Jordan Johnson in the back of the end zone for a touchdown with 34.9 seconds left to help the Panthers steal a dramatic 27-21 victory in a classic battle between two defending league champions on Sept. 2. The Raiders had just come from behind themselves, after erasing a 20-7 second-half deficit with two touchdowns, the last of which gave Portland their first lead of the game, 21-20, in their bid to beat their old ICL nemesis for the first time since 1998. Portland head coach John Novara said that his team can hold their heads high after this game. “I think the kids battled hard tonight,” Novara said. “I’m not into moral victories, we came out here to win, but we came out and played a lot harder and a lot better this week. “We’re going to come back tomorrow and practice and be focused and get after it.” DeWitt scored first, on a fortunate bounce deep in Portland territory. Johnson fumbled the ball on the Raider five yard line, but it fell to Nathaniel Deak, who ran it seven yards for a touchdown with 5:25 left in the first. Portland’s Andrew Barr answered with a 44-yard touchdown run with 2:55 left in the second to tie the game, 7-7, but DeWitt restored their lead with a sevenplay, 65-yard drive capped off by a 36-yard TD pass from Higbie to Johnson with 43.7 seconds left in the half to give the Panthers the 13-7 lead at the break. Higbie increased the lead to 20-7 with an eightyard keeper on DeWitt’s first possession to give his team a 20-7 advantage with 8:30 left in the third quarter. Portland quarterback Jake Kenyon finished a long scoring drive, 10 plays for 70 yards, with a seven-yard keeper on the Raiders’ ensuing possession to cut the lead to 20-14, and then found Pierce, who out-leaped two DeWitt defenders to haul in the 13-yard TD pass, give Portland their only lead of the game, and send the home crowd into delerium. “We were pretty excited,” Novara said, “but we knew that they’re powerful, we knew that they’d try to come back. I think we got a little tired, and couldn’t get enough pressure on the quarterback, he runs around so well back there.” The key play in the game-winning drive was a 40-yard pass from Higbie to his brother Jacob down to the Portland 16 yard line. Two plays later, Johnson came down with the winning TD. “I’m not going to lie, I was nervous,” Caleb Higbie said, before leading the Panthers on a four-play, 42-second scoring drive for the winning TD.

Portland’s Tyler Pierce (6) grabs a pass over DeWitt defender Ryan Wieber to tie the score with 1:17 left in the Raiders’ 27-21 loss on Sept. 2. “But we practice those two-minute drills, and we were able to come through and get that score when we needed it.” Higbie completed 21 of his 26 passes, including three for touchdowns, and ran in another score for the Panthers. Barr led the Raiders with 90 yards rushing in the contest. Kenyon completed 10 of his 15 passes for 83 yards, and picked off two on defense. The Raiders held the Panthers to 102 yards rushing as a team on 30 carries. “We knew that they would be very physical, they’re very big up front,” said DeWitt coach Rob Zimmerman. “I give them a ton of credit, those Portland kids were ready to play, and our kids answered.” Portland will hit the road to take on another old ICL foe this week in a game that will probably decide the title of the Raiders’ present league, the CAAC White, when they travel to Williamston on Friday, Sept. 17.

Portland standout anchors EMU offensive line By CHRIS SOLARI csolari@lsj.com

YPSILANTI — A year ago, Bridger Buche’s junior season at Eastern Michigan ended before it began. In the Eagles’ season-opening 31-27 loss to Army in Ypsilanti on Sept. 4, Buche helped make up for lost time and showed his team just how much better it can be. Buche and the EMU offensive line opened holes for running back Dwayne Priest and quarterback Alex Gillett to each run for more than 100 yards. As a team, the Eagles had 285 yards and three touchdowns on the ground Saturday. All of this from a team that didn’t win a game and averaged just 126.2 rushing yards a game a year ago. “I think we all have high hopes. It’s more than just hopes - we have high expectations of ourselves from the summer we had and from the winter workouts,” former Portland High star Buche said at Mid-American Conference media day in late July. “We’re all really excited, to say the least.” No one more so than Buche. A starter since he was a true freshman in 2007, he needed his right hip surgically repaired weeks before the Eagles first game last August, forcing him to take a medical redshirt. Buche is back for the Eagles, at his third position in the three seasons he’s been healthy. He started at left tackle Saturday - his first time at the position in college - after playing tight end his first season and right tackle in 2008. Second-year coach Ron English was pleased with the play of the 6-foot-3, 312-pound former LSJ Offensive Player of the Year and his linemates Saturday. “We thought we’d have good O-line play, and they did well. And I thought the guys running the ball made some good plays,” said former Michigan assistant English, who endured an 0-12 debut last fall with EMU. “I was proud of the offensive line - we just need to build on that.” And for the next two seasons, Buche is one of those cornerstones. After starting once and playing a significant contribut-

ing role at tight end in 2007, a 4-8 season under then-coach Jeff Genyk, Buche moved to right tackle his sophomore season and started all 12 games during their 3-9 campaign. Heading into last season, Buche had continued to bulk up (he arrived in Ypsilanti weighing 270) and received preseason all-MAC honorable mention from Phil Steele College Football Preview magazine. Then came the injury - a tear in his hip labrum, along with some loose cartilage. On Aug. 20, 2009, he underwent surgery that shelved him for the entire season. “In the middle of (last) summer, I battled with it and it was kind of nagging me,” Buche said. “Finally, it got to the point where I couldn’t do my job and wasn’t able to do what I can do. We just decided to go with the surgery. And it feels really good now.” He returned to weightlifting and running in February, then returned to take part in the Eagles’ spring drills at his new position. “When coach English and his staff came in, it would have been like moving to a different position anyway if I had stayed at right tackle because it’s an all new offense,” Buche said. “It was almost easier moving positions because I had to learn a new offensive set anyway. It wasn’t that big a deal, and I’ve been at left tackle all through spring ball - I finally feel in place.” From what he’d seen in the spring and early fall, English was impressed with Buche’s ability and said the biggest adjustment would be for him to become comfortable with his stance on the left side of the line. “I love his attitude. He’s got some nastiness to him. And I think he’s going to be a great technician, because I think he’s got some toughness,” English said. “I think where he has to grow is as a leader, in bringing this line together and in bringing this team together. But I think he’ll do his job and do a nice job of that.” The Eagles took the close loss to Army hard, especially since they got so close to winning their first game since defeating Central Michigan, 56-52, on Nov. 28, 2008. None of the players were made available to the media after Satur-

Shamrock gridders fall short against Bath By SCOTT YOSHONIS

September 12, 2010

syoshonis@lsj.com

PORTLAND — Portland St. Patrick junior Luke Wilcox scored three touchdowns, one on offense, one on defense and one on special teams, but it wasn’t enough, as the Shamrocks fell to 0-2 with a 35-26 loss to Bath in a game played at Father Flohe Field on Sept. 2. St. Pats head coach Pat Russman said that Wilcox’s performance was a memorable one. “It was one of those career-type games,” Russman said. “He had a phenomenal day for us.” St. Pats quarterback David Simon threw an 18-yard pass to Matt Schrauben for the other Shamrock score in the game. Wilcox opened the scoring in the first quarter when he picked off a pass in the endzone and took it 102 yards the other way to give St. Pats a 6-0 lead. Bath scored late in the first quarter and again early in the second, both on the ground, to takle a 14-6 lead, before Simon found Schrauben for the Shamrocks’ second TD, which made the score 14-12. Bath, who amassed 263 yards on the ground in the game, then drove for another score, finished off with a 20-yard

run by Bees QB Brodie McGill, one of his three rushing touchdowns in the game. Wilcox responded by takling the ensuing kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown. Simon ran in the two-point conversion to make the score 21-20 at the half. After another long drive to start the half led to another Bath score, stretching the lead to 28-20, Wilcox broke through the line on a trap play and dashed 58 yards for his, and St. Pats’, final score of the day in the third quarter. The Bees tacked on another TD in the fourth to make the fianl score 35-26. Russman likes his team’s ability to break the game open on offense. “You can see that we have the potential to make big plays, we just need to be a little more consistent doing the little things better,” he said. “Defensively, we need to do a better job stopping the run.” The Shamrocks find themselves at a bit of a size disadvantage in the trenches, a problem that is heightened in the roughand-tumble CMAC, but Russman refuses to use that as an excuse. “In the league we play in, we’re a little small up front,” he said, “but we definitely have the people who can do the job, if they focus. We just have some things to fix, and we’ll go from there.”

BSA S oftwa re is looking for a few great .NET S oftwa re Developers BSA S oftwa re is the Michigan leader in Property Assessing, Tax, C ommunity Development, Financial Management, and U tility Billing S oftwa re for township, city, and county Government. Over 95% of all municipalities in the state of Michigan are customers of BSA S oftwa re We are a very successf ul, profit able organization that creates leading edge produ cts and deliv ers unparalleled service and support to our customers. At BSA S oftwa re, we emphasize talent - not j ust experience. We are looking for softwa re dev elopers who are f rom Michigan or have a strong des ire to live in Michigan. We are not interested in temporary hired guns Responsibilities: ∂ C reate and Maintain Desktop and Web applications using C # and SQL S erver. ∂ Design softwa re solutions working within the company-wide f ramework we have created. ∂ Work with customers, BSA technical support, other softwa re dev elopers, and produ ct managers to make the best softwa re produ cts possible. ∂ Learn and use the tools and best-practice techniques that we have implemented within the organization

25

We look for softwa re dev elopers with the follow ing traits: 1) S hare our core values. We are a company that is completely customer d riven. Our niche is that we offer better and quicker customer responsiveness than anybody else in our market. 2) Minimal need to manage. We feel the moment we need to tightly manage a softwa re dev eloper; we have the wrong person for our company. We believe spending time trying motivate/manage an indiv idu al is a complete waste of time. Instead we look for people that are self-mot ivated and results-oriented. 3)C ombination of ability and strong work ethic. Each dev eloper we hire should have the capability and competitive fir e to be the best softwa re dev eloper we have. 4)A strong understa nding of the difer ence between having a job and holding a responsibility. We call this "produ ctively neurotic". People that are produ ctively neurotic have a need to take care of outstanding i sues. If they see a hole, they want to fill it. In short, they do what it takes to produ ce results Benefits: We recognize that the "right people" are our most valuable asset. Our extremely competitive salary and benefits package includes matching 401K, reimbursement for business expenses, medical insurance, prescription d rug coverage, casual d ress, f ree soft d rinks, paid company holida ys, and paid vacations We are looking for top talent to join the BSA organization.
