Friends of the MacDonald Public Library Mary MacDonald, Jeanine Killmar, Barbara Richards, Gerry Mack and Joan Peer, along with library Director Margaret Thomas, are shown in front of the Giving Tree, located in the library’s lobby.

Friends looking to grow MacDonald Library Giving Tree BY BARB PERT TEMPLETON VOICE REPORTER

Members of the community can help The Giving Tree at MacDonald Public Library grow by purchasing a leaf, acorn or stone to be placed on or in the tree. The unusual, ongoing project will allow donors to honor someone’s memory, celebrate a life or just make a contribution to the library. Annette Goike, assistant director at the library, said the Giving Tree project was started by the Friends of the Library group last year. After Phase I of their renovation was completed, they brainstormed ideas for getting Phase II, III and IV off the ground and came up with the concept. The unique tree is actually made of metal and it stands in the vestibule of the library. It was blank at first but as donors have purchased silver and gold leaves and acorns it looks a bit fuller. There’s also one large stone at the foot of the tree that was donated by members of the Friends group, Goike said. “It will grow as more leaves are purchased and then more limbs will be added to it as we go,” Goike said. Mary MacDonald, of New Baltimore, is secretary for the Friends of the Library,

She said fellow Friends member, Camille Earle, came up with the actual idea for the Giving Tree. “This is something that can continue giving to the library for a long time to come and when it’s getting full we can just add to it,” MacDonald said. So far, some of the donations have been in memory of loved ones and the leaves or acorns are engraved accordingly. Other contributions have simply been donations to the library and the family or organization that have shown such generosity can also have something inscribed on their leafs. “The inscription is pretty much whatever they want on there,” Goike said, noting New Life Copper and Brass in Casco, made the tree and adds the inscriptions as needed.

Chesterfield residents unhappy with sewer project BY JAMESON COOK FOR THE VOICE

Residents of a Chesterfield Township condominium complex aren’t happy that the tranquil setting of woods and wildlife outside their homes has been replaced by the noise and activity of a county sewer project. But there’s probably not much homeowners in Concordia Condominiums can do about Phase II of the North Gratiot Interceptor Project. This phase involves constructing a pump station near the dead end of Concordia Boulevard and implanting about five miles of sewer pipe from halfway between 26 Mile and 25 Mile roads to 21 Mile Road. Richard and Gail Phariss said they were shocked to return home from a vacation last August to find workers cutting down trees, some of them 100 years old with 3foot diameters, adjacent to their yard. “The woods were gone,” Phariss said. “These giant tree-eating machines would pick up the tree, root and all, out of the ground and then they would feed it through this other machine that turned it into small chips.” Like many of the complex’s residents whose homes abut a quarter-mile stretch of the project’s projected pipeline, the Pharisses bought their home because of the forest, paying an extra few thousand dollars for the proximity.

Gail Phariss, left, and Joyce Polinski of Concordia Condominiums in Chesterfield Township stand at the eastern edge of the complex’s property, adjacent to a $10 million sewer project.

“We saw deer, we saw fawns being born,” Phariss said. “We even saw turkeys, and all kinds of stuff. We miss it.” “We sat there and cried,” said resident Andy Suhy regarding him and his wife, Karen Brooks, when they saw the tree cutting. “We built a deck on the back. I wish we would have known about it before we bought it.” About 32 units of Concordia, located east of Gratiot between 25 and 26 Mile roads, are most affected because they are located next to the easement. “They could’ve went behind the woods. There’s farmland back there,” said resident Joyce Polinski. But Gordon Wilson of Anderson, Eckstein and Westrick Inc. in Shelby

Township, which designed the project, said officials used land for which easements were already gained, since the project goes over an existing 27-inch pipeline that was installed in part for Macomb Correctional Facility state prison on 26 Mile Road. Purchasing private properties to lay the pipe would have been expensive and time-consuming, likely resulting in condemnation proceedings. He said a road was originally planned for the stretch between 25 Mile and 26 Mile roads, and that the cleared land is preferable to a road. He said residents should have known that - since the road is included in Concordia’s plans. Polinski dismissed the argument for the project that a road would be built if the sewer line wasn’t. Calling it a “road to nowhere,” she said traffic flow would never

necessitate a road there. Wilson admitted he understands residents’ concern. “I do sympathize with people who bought their homes there because of the trees,” he said. The project is part of a multi-phase, years-long North Gratiot Interceptor Project to improve sewer flow in northeast Macomb County. The current $10-million project is the second phase and includes the pump station and installation of two 22-inch sewer lines, with completion by the end of this year. Chesterfield and Lenox townships and New Haven village are paying for it through sewer rates. The $16-million Phase I, which included more than two miles of a 66-inch line (replacing a 42-inch line), was recently completed. It included pipes from I-94 and 21 Mile Road to I-94 and Joy Boulevard near the Mount Clemens-Clinton Township border. The three communities are paying 60 percent of Phase I, with the remaining 40 percent paid by the county waste water district. The combined phases three and four, the smallest portion costing about $2-3 million, will follow. It is an extension of the line from near Concordia north to 26 Mile. One of the Concordia residents interviewed by The Macomb Daily said he didn’t mind the project. “I realize people lost the woods, but it’s got to be done,” said Nelson Jabenske, 77. “Some people can’t stand progress.”

“That’s progress,” resident Antoinette Tessier sarcastically said. “But I have to say my tongue is firmly in my cheek.” But several residents accused county officials of being deceptive since they were not notified about the project until after work started. An uproar prompted the county Department of Public Works to conduct an informational meeting at the Chesterfield Township hall last September at which many residents vented but didn’t get much satisfaction. “People wanted to know, ‘Why didn’t you tell us?’ The obvious answer was, ‘We didn’t want to tell you because you’d be upset, and we didn’t want anything to stall the progress,’” Gail Phariss said. “So they just showed up. We saw the signs that construction was coming. We had no idea what was going to happen.” Wilson said the entire North Gratiot Interceptor Project was subjected to a public hearing held in a local auditorium a few years ago before it was approved by a drain board. Another complaint is that the pounding of beams along the circumference of the 50-foot deep hole for the pump station has caused the condo walls to shake and rattle, residents said. Tessier said she removed crystal decorative items in her unit because of the excessive vibrations. Project organizers videotaped the interior and exterior of many of Concordia’s homes, with residents’ permission, for evidence if residents claim wall or founda-

tion damage. Residents also don’t like that construction has created noise from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or sometimes later after dark. “We don’t need an alarm clock. ... The first thing you hear is the noise, about 8 o’clock in the morning,” Gail Phariss said. Noise was reduced somewhat last week when Detroit Edison provided power access, meaning workers from Pamar Enterprises, which won the contract for the job, wouldn’t have to use loud generators. Polinski and her husband, Glenn, expressed most concern about potential flooding of their yard and basement due to runoff. They said all of the topsoil was removed during tree cutting, leaving clay, which absorbs little water. “I’m worried about basement flooding,” Glenn Polinski said. “If they graded higher than the properties of us who live here, we’re going to flood.” Residents fear the project’s effect on property values, which have already suffered due to the real estate market crash. The condos originally sold for $200,000 or more, but Polinski said two units recently sold for $100,000 and $90,000. The Pharisses also are worried about the impact of the pump station, which they will be able to see directly out their living room window. “We call it the Godzilla project. It’s huge,” Phariss said.

John Hebert Columnist

Remember just this one rule Some advice to the newly-elected or re-elected: do not ever violate Rule Number Five. Just remember that you possess an “at will” position, which means you can be fired with or without severe cause. Not only is there another election coming up in a few years, but we also have the option of a recall. It’s not easy to do, but it can — and has — been done. We the voters are watching you. You need to do the job we elected you to do, or we’ll take steps to make you history. As a subsection to Rule Number Five, don’t for one moment think that you were elected based on your own merit. Quite often it’s because a significant number voted against the other candidate. This can make you the infamous “lesser of two evils,” and will be regarded in like fashion, unless you can convince Big Brother and Big Sister that you’re going to handle your position with integrity and hard work. Rule Number Five, by the way, is “Don’t take yourself too seriously.” Oh sure, it’s nice to have a more spacious office, with assistants, and assistance, maybe a special parking spot, maybe even a fancy car provided by the taxpayers. You’re still working for us, and we expect you to properly represent us as a whole, and not just the special interests who are clamoring for your attention and favors. We are the most dangerous entity a politician can encounter: an aroused electorate which is unwilling to put up with “politics as usual” and shoddy, self-serving ethical standards. The French Foreign Legion had a motto, “March or die.” Yours should be “Produce it or lose it.” Be advised. “What about the other rules,” you ask, “other than Number Five?” There are no other rules. Not for you.

No shortage of volunteer opportunities in area Delivering meals, providing office help and swinging a hammer all are possibilities BY BARB PERT TEMPLETON VOICE REPORTER

Volunteering is a good way to start the New Year off right and the opportunities to do so in Macomb County are diverse but plentiful. Katherine Benford, director of the Macomb County Senior Nutrition Program, said they have a strong volunteer support base in the county but need to continually replenish their volunteer pool to maintain their base of 1,000 drivers for the Meals on Wheels Program. The program is designed for senior citizens unable to prepare meals for themselves. Instead, volunteers deliver meals directly to their doors. The meals help ensure that seniors receive a nutritious hot meal and are able to stay in their own homes, preventing or delaying nursing home placement. Last year the program provided over 400,000 meals to 2,000 clients utilizing over 1,000 volunteer drivers. Volunteers are assigned to a route in their neighborhood or near where they work and the delivery takes just 60 to 90 minutes. Benford said lunches are picked up around 11 a.m. and volunteers are assigned to the same clients so they see the same people on the two days they volunteer each month. “We are looking for individuals who are able to deliver meals two times a month,” Benford said. The requirements for volunteer drivers are being at least 18 years old, having a valid driver’s license and use

of their own insured vehicle for deliveries. Benford said there’s an orientation class at which time a criminal background check is conducted on all volunteers. Mileage reimbursement is available for those who have the time, but resources are an issue. “We can help with that if that’s something that’s putting a barrier up to them volunteering,” Benford said. For more information about the Meals on Wheels program visit www.macombountymi.gov/mccsa or call (586) 469-5228. Karen Urquhart is the community resource coordinator for the Macomb County Department of Human Services and oversees several volunteer services programs. She said currently, volunteers are needed to serve as office assistants at all of the department’s four locations; two in Clinton Township, one in Warren and one in Sterling Heights. “We ask that they make a commitment to volunteer a minimum of two, half days a week and they need to have basic literacy skills,” Urquhart said. “They will be doing a variety of things from phones to filing to faxing documents or helping out in the mail room.” Volunteers can register for the positions online at the MCDHS Web site and once registered they will undergo a background check before being approved to work in the office. “We have a high volume fast paced work environment, but this is a great way for someone to learn new

Anchor Bay Knights of Columbus crown top spellers Submitted photos

The Anchor Bay Knights of Columbus held its annual spelling bee on Nov. 13 at Anchor Bay Middle School South. The contest was split into two competition levels. Level I consisted of students in grades four, five, and six, and Level II consisted of grades seven, eight, and nine. The Level I winner was Hope Osterman, and Emily Trayner was the first runner-up. In Level II, Darian Chunn was declared the winner while Lane Miller took the first runner-up position. There were a total of 28 participants. The winners received a $100 U.S. savings bond and the first, second and third runners-up received a $50 U.S. savings bond. All winners and runners-up each received a new dictionary. The winners will move up to the regional spelling bee which was set for Jan. 9 at the Marine City K of C Hall located at 8385 King Road in Marine City. Ken Krause is pictured with the winners of each level.

people came out to help; it was really tremendous,” Elias said. Habitat is a non-profit, Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness. The group was founded on the belief that every man, woman, and child should have a decent, affordable place to live where they may dwell in dignity and safety. Elias said for those who want to help out but not wield a hammer there are opportunities to serve as a host at the site, welcoming volunteers and sharing safety tips with them. Or if going to a work site isn’t someone’s idea of volunteering, the Habitat offices need clerical support from data entry and

don’t like wild game and so we’re going to do some oven chicken.” Accompaniments will include salad, potatoes and vegetables. The ticket price also includes an open bar, as well as live music featuring the DD James band, raffles and prizes. The public is invited to come out and support the first of what organizers hope will become an annual event. “This is the first one. Number one. We are giving it a try to see if it works out,” Helton said. Cocktails will be served at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will follow within the hour. Tickets are priced at $50 each and may be purchased by visiting the website at specialdreamsfarm.org or by contacting Helton at (586) 749-5377 or Mary at (586) 716-9863. An array of succulent game has been donated by a meat market that specializes in wild game; by Lenox Township resident, avid hunter and ardent SDF supporter Jim Helton, as well as by Richard Bellomo, of Macomb Township, who

will perform the cooking honors that evening. “I’ve done a lot of dinners. Even though I retired from General Motors, I was in charge of the catering at the Italian Cultural Center in Warren for 10 years. I’ve had my own restaurant and a catering business and, you know, I’ve done that for years and years,” Bellomo said. Bellomo will be assisted by his grandson, Michael Angelo Bellomo, 18, who is studying to be a chef. Together the two intend to whip up some wild game specialties. “We’ve got mountain lion and ... breast of bird. We’ve got venison sausage, we’ve got meatballs. We’re going to have an elk stir-fry and numerous salamis and jerkies and salami sticks for hors d’oeuvres,” Bellomo said. Bellomo, a veteran wild game preparer, says the secret of serving palatepleasing wild game has a lot to do with how the game was initially cared for. “It is all how it’s prepared. The main thing with wild game - I would say 75 percent, is how the game

has been taken care of after it was harvested. How it has been taken care of will determine 75 percent of how that piece of game is going to taste. That determines a lot - how it’s packaged, how it’s frozen and then it is up to the cook to make a nice meal out of it,” he said. Proceeds from the event will benefit Special Dreams Farm, a nonprofit working agricultural farm in St. Clair Township for adults with special needs who come from many different counties to take part in its programs. The special goals of program participants include: Doing their best; Realizing potential; Earning a living; Always growing; Making a difference; Serving the community.

The dog finally stopped in one backyard, where the homeowner came out and said the dog was his. The officer could detect the dog becoming increasingly anxious with his presence. The owner agreed to secure his dog in his yard in the future. The officer let him off with a warning, but said another similar incident would result

in a ticket. A NEW BALTIMORE WOMAN REPORTED to police Jan. 5 that vandals have been coming on her property lately. She told them her front porch was egged during Halloween and a cornstalk she put out for a seasonal decoration was just ripped out and thrown on her porch.

Shelter, food and jobs. Making sure those three things are available to every resident in 2011 is the top priority of Lenox Township Supervisor Ron Trombly. Trombly said foreclosures are still a major concern for many homeowners, along with maintaining steady employment and keeping food on the table, so providing help with all three issues will be his top priority. Economic development is the surest way to help solve all three problems and bringing in jobs is first and foremost. “The main thing that me and (New Haven Village

President Jammie Kincaid) have discussed is to get jobs or any type of businesses looking our way,” Trombly said. Along with providing assistance for those facing foreclosure, the township will continue to help the neighbors of properties that have already been foreclosed on by enforcing their foreclosure ordinance. That ordinance requires banks or other lien holders to maintain the lawns and make sure all refuse is properly disposed of. Trombly said he also is interested in having the township look into acquiring foreclosed or short-sale properties at a cost to the township of pennies on the dollar.

New Haven Village President Jammie Kincaid again is aiming to lure businesses to the New Haven area. His goal of two new businesses last year was bested by at least two or three and he’s hoping this year brings more of the same. “My goal is the same as it was last year and that’s to bring in businesses and create jobs,” he said. Kincaid said that not only would new businesses offer job opportunities but it also increases the tax base for the village. “Survival is the key and in order to survive in these times we have to diversify our tax base and take some of the burden off the resi-

During this intense fighting Krul’s father, William Krul, was killed in action - leaving behind his wife, the former Mary Starzynsk, and his son who was just a little over 2 years old. Krul’s program will include rare photos of this action and also two memorial monuments in France and Texas dedicated to the 103rd. Krul’s research resulted in his father receiving the Bronze Star posthumously. This special honor was awarded to Krul and his family at a session of the Macomb County Board of Commissioners in 2005.

dents,” Kincaid said. Infrastructure projects dominated the landscape across the village last year with a major overhaul to the drinking water system recently being completed. Kincaid said nothing major is planned this year but several smaller sewer repair and maintenance projects will likely be completed sometime this year. Overall, even with the economy showing the slightest signs of recovery, it seems apparent that most local communities are still just trying to weather the storm.

HOME PATIENT was spotted walking down Washington Street near 24 Mile Road Jan. 6, followed by a vehicle driven by group home personnel, according to a New Baltimore police report. Police located the patient and vehicle following him driving at a slow speed behind him with its emergency lights on. The staff members explained to police the man suffers from schizophrenia and refused to return back with them. Police stopped in front of the man and asked him to step onto the shoulder of the road. The man complied and told police he was walking to the store. One of the staff members informed the patient she would drive him to the store, so the man agreed to accompany the group home staff.

A TIP LED CHESTERFIELD Township police to a business at 30707 Commerce Blvd. on Saturday Jan. 1 where a would-be robber had piled about a half-ton of scrap from behind the building onto his truck, according to Chesterfield Detective Brian Dowell. The owner of Global Advanced Products, LLC turned out to be the tipster. “Our officers arrived and the guy gave up immediately,” Dowell said. The suspect, who is in his 40s and from Lenox Township, was processed and released, pending the issuance of a warrant. Police are seeking authorization of a felony larceny charge for the attempted theft of approximately $1,000 worth of scrap.

New Baltimore one step closer to acquiring new police station building BY LISA GERVAIS ASSISTANT EDITOR

New Baltimore City Council approved a purchase agreement for the new police building on Green Street last month. The deal is pending inspection of the building, which previously was the now defunct Citizens State Bank’s lending and operations center. “We just want to double-check and make sure there’s nothing hazardous in the building,” Mayor Larry Smith said, “just to be on the safe side.” Police Chief Tim Wiley said the purchase agreement hinges on a clean check for asbestos in the building. “Making that type of investment it’s very important to make sure environmental hazards are addressed,” he said. “This puts us in the driver’s seat now to move forward and get the asbestos testing.” The city anticipates the department’s move from downtown New Baltimore to the new 11,000-square-foot building and adjacent 4,000-square-foot back building mid-year. Smith noted the $475,000 price tag which will be paid for from funds saved by the department - is a smart investment. “This is a really big move for us,” he said. “Especially when I see in the paper other cities are building new stations for millions.” Renovations of the building should total $334,678. “We’re grateful to the community and elected officials both presently and historically for saving the funds necessary to do this and those that had the determination in the past to make this possible in the future,” Wiley said. “We’re going to continue to utilize tax dollars for the best use possible.” The city has yet to decide what they will do with the current police station on Front Street in downtown New Baltimore. Director of Planning and Economic Development Judy Sproat previously said the city could go in a number of directions, including selling the property outright and soliciting bids from developers - adding officials would take their time in reaching a decision.

PAGE 6

Can’t afford Hackel as exec This is in response to the newly-elected Mark Hackel receiving his new executive salary of $139,000 per year as well as a pension also paid from the Macomb County coffers in the amount of over $74,000 per year, not to mention the $376,000 lump sum payment due to his “retirement.” This is absolutely outrageous! If Hackel’s salary is coming from the same municipality that is paying his pension, there is no way he should be allowed to receive both. While continuously employed by Macomb County, Hackel merely changed job classifications and therefore should be precluded from drawing a pension from the same employer while still employed. Hackel claims innocence by stating he served as a Macomb County sheriff employee for over 30 years and thus is entitled to that pension. Well, I’m sorry Mr. Hackel, you’re still employed by this county even though you have a new job title. And due to that fact, you should

The Voice welcomes letters from our readers. Contact the editor at editor@voicenews.com not be receiving any additional payments from this county while still employed! We can’t afford it. As for the appointment of your good buddy Dave Diegel, (also a retiree from Macomb County and receiving $79,000 per year in pension as well as a $436,000 DROP payment) as interim finance director at $2,800 per week, how convenient is that? You’re not even in office yet, but you’re already costing our county more that we can afford. DON RUEDISUELI Macomb Twp.

Downriver officials work together The January 5, 2011 edition of The Voice brought welcome news. An article stated that officials of Clay Township and the city of Algonac are currently engaged in discussions relative to a fire authority. The opening sentence read: “The enmity between Clay Township and Algonac goes way back.” As a 60 year resident of Algonac, my observations on this matter is that if there was enmity in the past, it originated from the words and actions, or lack of action, from each government’s elected and/or appointed officials. Some of them were given to posturing, verbal muscle flexing,

limited interest in learning facts, individuals making uninformed and hostile declarations and an “I/we will show them attitude.” I have never had a sense that there was enmity between citizens of either locale toward the other. In fact, we would express to each other a wish that the senseless posturing by members of the two governmental entities would give way to working together for the greater good of both communities. We are fortunate that Jay DeBoyer is supervisor of Clay Township, Irene Bird is mayor of Algonac and that Algonac City Council had the good sense to hire Karl Tomion as city manager. KAREN COLE Algonac

First response is overkill After reading the article in the Dec. 19 edition I realized how much waste there is in the cost of operating the Port Huron Fire Department. Why send a fire engine on a heart attack call or when a person falls. In Port Huron, the fire rescue doesn’t even transport the victim. They call an ambulance. What a waste of money. In 99 percent of the calls, two men can handle the emergency. Why would anyone want several EMS technicians and firemen in their house when only two are needed? Before

the fire department started answering EMS calls, there were only two people in the ambulance on all calls. Years ago, most funeral homes had an ambulance for calls. In Marysville, we had four paid, full-time firemen and 15 volunteers. We did all calls, but did not transport. We had five or six volunteers who went to the fire hall and if another call came in, we would roll on it. We didn’t have five volunteers coming in to the rescue room to get in each other’s way. Two people properly trained can answer most

Commitment to family, political dynamic led to appointment If it weren’t for her commitment to her family, Kathy Vosburg probably would not be chairperson of the Macomb County Board of Commissioners. Instead, the Chesterfield Township Republican not only made history last week when she became the first G.O.P. official to earn the post but resumed a tradition that bodes well for the area. Vosburg takes over as the position of board chair is being redefined. The longsought county executive form of government was officially ushered in Dec. 31 when former Sheriff Mark Hackel was sworn into the post. While the county board chair will no longer be considered a member of the Big Four (along with the mayor of Detroit and the Wayne and Oakland County executives) this person will wield a significant amount of power

Forty-five families helped by Giving Tree The New Baltimore Police Officers Association and the Community Giving Tree Committee would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the citizens who participated in the 2010 Community Giving Tree Program. This year the committee was able to provide full holiday assistance to more than 45 families in need. As with most successful ventures, many individuals and organizations partnered with us by sharing their many resources, time and talents. Volunteerism and generosity is alive and well in the greater New Baltimore area. We congratulate every donor and volunteer whose contribution has made a positive impact on another person’s life ... especially during this holiday season. The New Baltimore

Jeff Payne Editor as the legislative check against the executive’s office. Vosburg’s appointment to the seat is an unlikely ascension that began with a decision made early last year. With sentiment against Democrats growing throughout the state, it became clear to Republicans they had the opportunity to take back a number of offices, including the 32nd District Michigan House of Representatives seat, which was held by Democrat Jennifer Haase. Firefighters were especially gracious in opening up their fire station to our annual pancake breakfast with Santa Claus. Attempting to express our gratitude by naming everyone would be an impossible task; however, listed below includes a small sample of the many caring and dedicated individuals and groups who make our program possible. Gendernalik Funeral Home, New Baltimore Pennzoil (Kel-Mac, Rob Aleman, Manager), city of New Baltimore, Chesterfield Township, New Baltimore Recreation Department, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 112, the New Baltimore Firefighters Association, New Baltimore Lions Club, New Baltimore Goodfellows, MacDonald Public Library, Bernie Beckeve, William and Sheryl Condon, Advanced Integrated Tooling, Merry Go Rounder’s Camping Club, Chesterfield Fire Department, New Baltimore Senor Citizens Club, the Giving Tree Committee, the Anchor Bay Lions Club, Rosie O’Gradys Restaurant, The Voice Newspapers and Jim Morisette.

Two years earlier, Haase sprung an upset when she defeated Republican John Accavitti to win a seat that in recent years has leaned toward the G.O.P. With no clear local challenger Vosburg would have been a natural fit. Her previous political experience as a county commissioner would be valuable on the campaign trail and would give her a leg up on other freshmen on day one in Lansing. Additionally, it could be argued that running against Democrat Haase would be an easier task than taking on Brian Brdak, himself a veteran commissioner with deep ties to the Dave Bonior tree of politicians in the newly drawn eighth district. In the wake of the vote by commissioners to put her at the head of the board table last week, Vosburg admitted she strongly considered

making the move to Lansing. “I absolutely did,” she said. “This would have been a great time to run.” The commute to Lansing and time involved going back and forth from her Chesterfield Township home was just too much of a price to pay. “I enjoy my family,” she said. In the end it all worked out for Republicans as a former Alan Sanborn staffer and political neophyte, Andrea LaFontaine, squeaked by in the primary and soundly defeated Haase in the general election while Vosburg had an easier than anticipated time defeating Brdak. The unlikely story doesn’t end there, however. Last week, on the eve of the chairperson vote, Vosburg heard Democrats, who hold a 7-6 majority on the county

board, had circled their wagons behind Eastpointe’s Phil DiMaria. Democrats on the county board are notorious for their divisions and getting behind DiMaria seemed an unusual compromise but, regardless, if this was true it was unlikely Vosburg could earn the post. While the board may have a new configuration, going from 26 to 13 seats, the Dems showed their old tendencies, splitting between DiMaria and David Flynn of Sterling Heights while the six Republicans united behind Vosburg. After three rounds of votes that shook out with six for Vosburg and three each for the two Dems, Center Line’s Marv Sauger had enough of his party’s stalemate and jumped to Vosburg. “Marv saw me as someone who could work with them,” she said. “Most deci-

sions are not partisan decisions.” The vote not only gives the Republicans their firstever board chair, it reinstates a political voice for the area. Historically, northeast Macomb County and particularly New Baltimore and Chesterfield have not had leaders willing to dive into the pool of county politics. Luckily, the area has had a strong voice at the board table. Walt Franchuk and his successor, John Hertel, spent decades holding the chairmanship. While Vosburg realizes her job is to represent the entire county as the chair, in a time of diminishing resources it no doubt cannot hurt to have her wielding additional power on behalf of the area. Her first order of business will be sorting out the new form of government, which will be no easy task.

VoiceNews.com - 7 Snow that piled up outside the couple’s English cottage made for fun sledding for children but wasn’t as welcome at Heathrow Airport in London.

An anxious escape home made for holiday memories

liest all four of us could fly together was not until three days later. Luckily, there was enough snow for the children to spend the afternoon sledding down the tiny hill in the back garden. That kept their minds occupied long enough until new, amazing friends came over with a full roast meal, complete with a Christmas pudding. We ended up having a lovely evening, and laughed and danced the night away. The next morning, we went to the market to pick up supplies — some of which we just threw out before our original flight — to get us through the next few days. We could not wait to get on that next plane but were still a little leery about whether or not we would get out due to another snowstorm and massive delays, cancellations and closures at London Heathrow. It was difficult to get our hopes up. We were supposed to leave on Tuesday morning with a taxi taking us to the train station in town for us to catch another train into London. On Monday, we called the cab company to confirm. Due to icy roads and more impending wet weather, taxis would not be in operation on Tuesday. We then checked the rail lines, and some trains were even getting cancelled. Nervously, we decide to go for it, right then and there. Since the chances of us getting to the airport were slim to none on Tuesday, we

pens in the morning, we had tried our best. In the morning, we found that while terminals 1, 2 and 4 were closed, our flight was still on time out of terminal 5. We hopped on the Heathrow Express and headed to the airport. Once there, the sights were so depressing. Families were camped out all over the place. There were people and luggage everywhere. My heart hurt so deeply for the people who were trying to get home for the holidays. At least we were able to get home, to sleep in our own beds while waiting for our next flight. Mother Nature’s fury and holiday travel do not go well together, and we have been thoroughly turned off of traveling during this time in the future. See TATER on page 8

decided to take a train into the city that night. The children, who were playing nicely and about to put their pajamas on, were very surprised to hear that we were leaving NOW, but still complied without batting an eyelash. We got a ride to the train station from a dear neighbor in her Land Rover, one of the only vehicles that I would have actually felt safe in on the icy roads. It takes two trains to get into London and, along the way we booked a hotel room at Paddington Station. At this point, I was still convinced there was no way we were going to make our flight as the majority of Heathrow was still shut down. The news depicted stranded passengers who had slept on thin mats for the past few days, and lines of people waiting to get in. Once we arrived at the hotel, we got a bite to eat and told the kids that although we were going to try to make our flight, we were not sure. In their little hearts they already new this and were ready to be optimistic and give it a try. We all slept very soundly that night, knowing that whatever hap-

ADLIB2011

Last July, when I began making the travel arrangements for our holiday trip home to the states, I never could have anticipated how difficult it would be to actually make it back. Over the course of the six months leading up to our trip, we planned parties, made arrangements to stay with family members and were even lucky enough to have family from out-of-town agree to drive in and meet us in the Detroit area. It was going to be perfect. Ten days in America with family and friends, shopping at recognizable stores and eating at our favorite restaurants. The day before we were set to leave, a small snowstorm blew into Devon, closing our little airport. We had a terrible feeling that our trip home would be delayed. Luckily for us, when we awoke on our departure day both of our flights were still displaying on-time statuses. We woke the children early and caught a cab to the airport. The kids were so excited. Nearly nine months had gone by since they were in their home country. We checked in at the airport and then went through security and grabbed a bite to eat while we waited for our turn to board. We waited, and waited and waited. Finally, after three hours of delays the airline decided to cancel the flight. We were devastated, especially the kids. Little Jake was crying silent tears. Out of all of the trips we have taken this year, this was the only one that really mattered. The cab ride back to the cottage was a quiet one. The kids did not even perk up with the mention of the usual things that I can bribe them with. We spent nearly three hours on the phone trying to see if we could get out the next day, but the ear-

Pre-event tickets are available to students during their lunch hours until Jan. 21. Tickets will be available at the door at a cost of $10, and students can also purchase a T-shirt for $10 at the door. Amell said she expects 1,000 students and L’Anse Creuse High School North alumni to attend the event, which is scheduled to coincide with the completion of exam week for students. “This year all of the vendors have chosen to provide free samples of their food,” Amell said.

and many other things.” Students in need are identified through the school counseling office or by teachers. “The funds are issued on an individual basis,” Amell said. “All the students need to do is ask someone and we will help them out.” Last year’s first Northfest event raised $1,000 for underprivileged students. The event was developed last year by Dylan Duffiney, a senior at the school who brought his idea to the student council. Although he has graduated, Duffiney continues to serve as an organiz-

We checked our bags and headed into the lounge. Once there, the kids were easily distracted by the buffet and video games, while my husband and I watched on the monitor as flights were delayed and cancelled one by one. We had a drink to calm our nerves, while trying to stay positive for the kids. We were not going to make it, and we knew it. The flight above ours was just cancelled, and we waited patiently to see the same happen to ours. But it never did. We then heard our flight number being called over the loud speaker for boarding. I could not believe it. Seventy percent of Heathrow flights were scuttled that day, but we were lucky enough to go. We waited at the gate, long enough to make me nervous but then boarded and got settled into our seats. Again, we waited. This

time, we waited on the plane, still at the gate, for over an hour. I just knew we were not getting off the ground. Any minute now they were going to tell us to get off the plane. Then, it happened. We taxied onto the runway and took off. I was in shock. Absolute shock. Eight hours later, we landed in Detroit and when the customs officer said, “Welcome home,” I sappily cried tears of joy. We made it! Although our trip was cut three days short, we were able to spend quality time with our families and had lots of fun catching up with old friends. Friends we have known since childhood. The type of friends you can go a year without seeing and know that it will be just like you left off the next time you get together. Friends for life. Thank goodness for good friends, old and new.

unions that settled would automatically also get the benefit, according to Lovelock. “I can tell you right now, in these economic times, I doubt if anybody is going to get something better,” Lovelock said. “They will probably get something worse.” The new deals are effective retroactive to Jan. 1, 2010, and expire on Dec. 31, 2013. Resident Lou Nigro requested the board offer information on the financial implications to the township of adopting the contracts between the township and its department heads and clerical employees. “I will have that available at the following meeting,” Lovelock said. “I want to break down everything for you -” Nigro pressed for the information to be presented publicly prior to the vote. “So you are going to adopt this contract without explaining to the body assembled or the television audience the

There are guidelines for the cost to purchase an ornament for the tree, but any donation will be noted in the Friends special Book of Knowledge purchased when the project took hold last spring. MacDonald said the leather-bound ledger will record any and all donations for the tree and if someone can’t afford a full price leaf, they can

VOSBURG continued from page 1

As board chair, Vosburg, 58, will essentially act as the equivalent of the speaker of the House in Washington. An accountant who specializes in tax laws, Vosburg has developed a reputation on the board as a solid conservative and a studious commissioner. She said she anticipates a cordial relationship with Hackel. “We’ve had a good working relationship,” she said of the former sheriff. “As long as I’ve been a commissioner, we’ve always had an ‘open-phone’ policy.” In a statement, Hackel said he was comfortable with the board’s decision. “I am looking forward to working with Kathy Vosburg

financial impact of the contract on the table?” Nigro said. Lovelock then proceeded to give the particulars of the savings. “Under this contract the clerical department is saving the township a total of $63,888,” Lovelock said. “There are 20 clerical people in the staff. There is an increase in insurance co-pays.” A premium increase, depending upon whether someone is single, married or has a family, is also included in the contract, according to Lovelock. “The savings the clerical department is going to bring is $63,888 ... by the union for the next three years. 2010 cannot be computed in there because it is completely over,” Lovelock said. “Department heads will save $28,793. There will be no raises for four years.” The police contract has also been settled, leaving about five more agreements left to negotiate, according to Lovelock. He anticipates these contracts will appear before the board in the next 30 to 60 days. “The police department, I can tell you, if you put the

police department in ... the police department was $51,463, that was already settled, the police patrolmen, and then if you add in the clerical $63,888 and the department heads of $28,793, you are going to see that that is about $160,000 savings,” Lovelock said. He added he intends to provide a list of what the board has saved the township over the past two years at the next board meeting. Every member of the board voted to approve the contracts except for Trustee Christine Bell. “In spite of the turmoil involved in the contracts, both tonight and at the last regular board meeting, I just want all of the employees and the department heads to know that I do appreciate the work that they do as individuals and as a group,” Bell said. “They are intelligent and very highly motivated and they make this building a very pleasant place to work. I sincerely do want the contracts to be as generous as possible, as what our funds will allow. But my conscious says I have to act as a

The cost for tree foliage are: a bronze leaf between $100 and $499; a silver leaf will mean a donation of

between $500 and $999; a gold leaf means that $1,000 to $2,499 has been given; an acorn states that between $2,500 and $2,999 has been contributed; and foundation stones are $3,000. Donations are tax deductible and the names of all who donate will be inscribed in the Book of Knowledge. Plans for the funds raised from the tree include three specific plans. Phase II will include revamping the juvenile section at the library including taking out

a wall to make more room, putting in new shelves and carpeting. Phase III will see a new circulation area while Phase IV is kind of a catch-all project that will upgrade a few things in the library as a whole, Goike said. “Donations have gone down a little because of the economy but it’s going OK,” Goike said.

County’s new form of government is in place as we move forward to create the next Macomb.”

“The fact of the matter is, no one wants to have a wage freeze. The cost of living is going up, and there will be no increase to balance it. — Brenda Adams said careful steward of the Chesterfield Township resources.” The board did not approve the two separate contract agreements between the township and the unions on Dec. 20, when some board members requested an analysis of the financial impact that the contracts would have on the township prior to signing off on them. A closed session meeting was held at 4 p.m. on Jan. 3 to address those concerns, according to Lovelock. Trustee Cheryl Printz thanked the board for having the closed session to clarify information. “I disagree a little bit with some of the information that was given out tonight,” Printz said. “I think that this is a concessionary contract.

no doubt about it. It is a concessionary contract. Our employees gave up raises, they are paying more for their health care and they have to have higher co-pays. But by the time you add in increases in premiums over the next couple of years it is probably going to be a wash.” The current economy makes sacrifices necessary, according to Trustee Brian “Scott” DeMuynck. “So we have all got to take a hit here, some more than others, to try to keep some balanced budgets -” DeMuynck

said. Kathie Sherrill, a staff representative for Local 2172.11 of the clerical employees, said the union reached a tentative agreement in November but had to wait for the board to ratify it. Brenda Adams, a representative for the department head bargaining unit, stated negotiations on the contract went on for 13 months. Union employees were aware of the need for givebacks, she added. “The fact of the matter is, no one wants to have a wage freeze,” Adams said. “The cost of living is going up and there will be no increase to balance it.”

Teens at MacDonald Public Library give back The MacDonald Public Library Teen Club got together over several weeks in November and early December and crafted for a cause by making handmade cards and gift tags to help support the library and raise money for the Friends of MacDonald Public Library group. The teens had a table at the Friend’s inaugural Christmas Bazaar held at the library Dec. 11. The teens asked for donations in exchange for their wares. All of the money collected -$61 - was given to the Friends by the teens in support of library programming and special events. The teen club is planning future fundraising projects to help the Friends group in 2011. Any teen interested in joining this group should attend a Teen T.A.B. meeting at the library. Teen T.A.B. meetings are held on the third Monday of every month at 7 p.m. For more information or if you can’t make a meeting, call Mary Jo Beranek at (586) 7250273.

Maconce Math-a-thon benefits St. Jude BY NICOLE TUTTLE VOICE REPORTER

Math homework at Maconce Elementary in Ira Township will soon not only help students to improve their skills but also help them benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. A Math-a-Thon to benefit St. Jude, which is located in Memphis, Tenn., kicked off at Maconce Monday. The Math-a-thon is open to students in grades K-five, according to Maconce first grade teacher and Math-a-Thon coordinator Lori Guilbeaux. Permission slips were sent home with students on Jan. 10 in their homework folders and must be returned to the school by Jan. 14. Once the Matha-thon booklets or CDROMS from St. Jude arrive, they are handed out to participants. “We usually have several students from each grade participate each year,” Guilbeaux said.

Ashley Elementary puts old Christmas cards to good use Used cards assist veterans hospital BY NICOLE TUTTLE VOICE REPORTER

A better fate than the trash can exists for the holiday artwork on Christmas cards received from family and friends. Ashley Elementary School third-grade teacher Jeannie Kammer has been encouraging her classes to salvage the holiday cards for at least 12 years, offering students and the community a chance to learn lessons about recycling and assistance to veterans. “The third-graders feel like they are doing something towards helping veterans,” Kammer said. “I express to them that they should be able to do this without getting something back, that it should be out of the kindness of their hearts.” Kammer said all the cards the New Baltimore school collects are donated to Amvets Post 52 on Green Street.

SOCIAL SECURITY

Jefferson, Chesterfield 800-give-life

Many people are wrongly rejected when they apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Money was taken out of their paychecks for Social Security taxes to ensure that they would receive disability benefits it they could no longer work full-time. Sadly, the government denies approximately 60% of those who apply for disability benefits. The tragedy is that less than half of those persons who are denied benefits file an appeal Thus, many thousands of people who deserve disability benefits never receive them. Those denied can appeal on their own but statistics for many years reveal that those represented by attorneys win a much higher percentage at appeals. And attorneys who specialize in Social Security Disability cases win a much higher percentage yet. Unlike most other attorneys, J.B. Bieske has represented only Social Security Disability clients for over 26 years. That is the only type of law he practices. And, he personally interviews all clients and appears himself at all court hearings. Many large firms assign clients to young associates attorneys with much less experience. In addition to practicing only Social Security disability law Bieske has written a book for attorneys about the subject. He also has been interviewed on various radio and television programs and has given speeches to many groups. Bieske’s office staff consists of paralegals and secretaries who are also highly experienced in assisting him with Social Security Disability cases. And they are extremely helpful in answering questions with regard to the status of client’s cases and administrative procedure. Attorney Bieske welcomes you to call him to determine if you may be eligible for these benefits. He offers a free phone or office consultation. If Bieske represents you, there will be no fee charged until after the case is won. The fee is a percentage of retroactive benefits. In a recent radio interview attorney Bieske explained that many people are not even aware that they are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. These are not the same as Worker’s Compensations benefits. It is possible to receive both benefits at the same time. If you have an illness or injury (whether or not related to your work), are under 65 and unable to work full-time you may be eligible. Social Security Disability benefits are based on your work record or your deceased spouse’s work record (Widow’s/Widower’s benefits) Bieske represents clients from all over the slate of Michigan. He has appeared numerous times before virtually all of the judges in the State. Call him at 1-800-331-3530 for a free consultation if you have been denied. Or if you are thinking of possibly applying for Social Security benefits call him for free advice.

Math-a-thon booklets include curriculums designed by Scholastic and meet national standard requirements, according to Guilbeaux. She said that the books are labeled for each grade level, so that students can receive problems to fit their current education level. Usually about half of the students who participate choose to use CDROMS instead of booklets, according to Guilbeaux. “The CDROMS are used just like the booklets, only it is all on the computer,” Guilbeaux said. “It’s a more ‘green’ way to complete the Math-athon booklets.” To raise funds, students request sponsorship to complete Math-athon problems from relatives, friends and neighbors, she said. “For example, if a sponsor promises to give that student 25 cents for every problem the student did correctly and the student did 100 problems correctly, then the sponsor would owe them $25,” Guilbeaux said. Once the booklet is complete, students must collect from their sponsors and return money to the school in a check form by Feb. 2. When all the checks are tallied, they are sent to St. Jude.

Students are often motivated by the information in a DVD that is sent with the Math-a-thon package. “There is usually a famous teenager that talks to the students about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and why it’s important to participate,” Guilbeaux said. “The prizes are nice as well, so that helps motivate the students.” Of the 165 students at Maconce, Guilbeaux said she hopes that at least 30 students will participate. “I hope for more, but with the economic times it’s hard to get families to participate,” Guilbeaux said. Teachers at the school also offer methods of encouraging students to participate, such as offering extra credit, free time or BEAR coins, which are part of the school-wide behavior rewards system. “In the past we have had a single student earn over $250,” Guilbeaux said. “It is a wonderful thing to be able to send that kind of money into a worthy place like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.” Maconce Elementary students have participated in Math-a-thons since 2001. “Our students and families have raised $11,536.89 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” Guilbeaux said.

New Haven stuns LCN in boys basketball Farr, Smith lead Rockets BY CHUCK KLONKE FOR THE VOICE

Who says balanced scoring is a must for winning basketball games? Not New Haven. The Rockets got a combined 42 points from seniors Tyler Smith and Robert Farr to stun defending Macomb Area Conference Red Division champion L’Anse Creuse North 47-44 Tuesday in a MAC crossover game. “It’s like that every game,” said New Haven coach Tedaro France. “Tyler is averaging 20.5 and Robert is averaging 19.7. The offense is coming through them, but our role players are also doing a good job. “Those two are great leaders. They make the other kids stay out there after practice to work on things. I’ve had them both for three years and to see them grow into the way they are now makes me so proud.” Even though Smith, who had 26 points against North, and Farr who had 16 points and eight rebounds, did most of the scoring - they made it clear that the Rockets aren’t a two-man team. The three sophomores in the starting lineup also make significant contributions. “I feel like it’s our responsibility to be leaders, but I also feel the young guys have stepped up a lot this year,” Smith said. “They came up from the JV and took a big role. They worked hard in the summer to get ready for the varsity and they’re proving it now. “It’s not just us. They’re

getting us the ball and setting screens. They’re playing their roles really well.” Farr agreed. “If we didn’t have them we wouldn’t have anything,” he said. “We need them just as much as Tyler needs me and I need him. We’re all a team.” Finishing 10-12 a year ago got to Smith and Farr. They were determined not to let it happen again if they could do anything about it. “Those tears after we lost last year hurt real bad,” Smith said. “We decided it’s not going to happen again. We’re going to go back to the old New Haven and start winning.” The victory against the Crusaders was a major step in that direction and improved New Haven’s record to 4-1. “It’s a real big win for our kids,” France said. “They’ve

worked so hard. We know North is a good team and we prepared well for this game. It’s tough to win here. Our kids kept fighting and fighting and fighting. I always stress that if we work hard we’ll see big rewards - and this is a big reward.” The game was close throughout. North had a five-point lead late in the first quarter, but Smith erased that with an 8-0 run in which he scored all the points. The Crusaders regained the lead midway through the second quarter and held a 19-17 halftime advantage. At halftime, France reminded his team of its goal for the game. “Our goal was to limit them to one attempted shot per possession,” France said. “In the first half we gave them eight second-chance points. In the second half, we did a

better job of limiting them to one shot on every possession. That was the key.” Farr said that the Rockets were ready for North. “We practiced on how they set their screens,” he said. “When (Craig) Smelley or anyone else came off a screen we made sure we had a hand in their face. And we made sure we boxed out when they were shooting.” The second half saw the lead change hands nine times. There were also seven ties. A steal by Smelley set up a basket by Tyler Conklin that gave the Crusaders a 44-43 lead with just over two minutes remaining. On New Haven’s next possession, Smith was fouled and he sank both free throws to put the Rockets back in front. He added two more free throws with 45 seconds to go when he came up with a loose ball after a North turnover to give New Haven its final margin of victory. The Crusaders had three 3-point shots in the closing seconds, but each of them hit the rim and bounced away. Farr finally came down with the rebound after the final attempt and held it as time expired. Khial Watson and Ryan Lombardo led North with nine points apiece. Drew Isabell pulled down eight rebounds. “It feels good to put New Haven on the map,” Smith said. “We’re a smaller school but we have athletes who work just as hard as anybody. Tonight we came away with the victory, but coach said we can only enjoy it until 12 o’clock tonight. Then we have to think about coming back and working even harder in practice tomorrow.”

COMMON CAUSES OF INGROWN TOENAILS Ingrown toenails are painful and easily infected. They occur when the skin on the side of a toenail grows over the nail’s edge or when the nail grows into the skin. While some individuals are prone to ingrown nails because their toes curl genetically or from a medical disease like arthritis, others develop the condition for preventable reasons. Shoes that constrict the toe area are a common culprit. Trimming toenails incorrectly is another primary cause. Nails should be trimmed straight across with a clipper. Runners whose forefeet press into the sides of their shoes may also suffer ingrown toenails. Bedridden people often develop ingrown toenails when their sheets are tucked in too tightly, constricting their feet. Ingrown toenails very often occur from improper trimming, but poor foot structure, heredity, injury, and infection can be contributing factors. Whatever is causing your feet to hurt, we hope you’ll turn to a professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

LCN defense outlasts New Haven BY BILL ROOSE FOR THE VOICE

Though they were outrebounded and shot a paltry 45 percent from the free throw line, L’Anse Creuse North accomplished what it set out to do in a Macomb Arena Conference crossover girls basketball game against visiting New Haven. The objective for the Crusaders was to limit the potential damage that New Haven could do, particularly with its main offensive weapon, senior swingman Alexis Taylor. North’s smothering zone defense did the trick, as the Crusaders marched to a convincing 59-

47 victory Tuesday night. “They definitely got a lot more physical, and we all could tell that they were getting frustrated,” said North junior Ashley Dunford, who along with sophomore Marisa Oleksiak led the Crusaders in scoring with 12 points each. Taylor scored a game-high 24 points, but her teammates weren’t much of a supporting cast. As a team, the Rockets (3-2) shot 38.8 percent (19-of-49) from the field, and only four other players managed to score, including freshman forward DeAsia Clark (nine points) and senior forward Danielle Maxwell (eight).

“I knew (Taylor) was a very good shooter; I remember her from last year,” Dunford said. “Coach (Bob Johnston) said that if we were guarding her that we had to stay low and play her hard. If we shut her down, we thought that we had a better shot of winning tonight’s game.” Besides their tenacious defense, the Crusaders did a remarkable job of spreading the ball around on offense, as 10 different players contributed on the score sheet, including Kayla King (nine points), Alexandra Michayluk (five), Kelsey Thompson (five) Jazmine Brown (four), Emily Nieman (four), Elizabeth Rawski (three), Jessica Finegan (three) and Stephanie Garland (two). “You like to think as a coach that every night everybody is going to contribute,” Johnston said. “We got some great contributions from some kids coming off the bench. I thought Michayluk was tremendous on the glass. I thought Kayla King had some really nice jump shots for us throughout the game. So when we get 10 different kids scoring like that, yeah, we become a little more difficult to defend, I guess.” The only time the Crusaders (2-3) trailed in this game was early in the opening quarter; but it didn’t take long for them to gain control of the game’s tempo and jet out to a double-digit cushion, something they never relinquished. “I thought we played a really, really good first half, and I thought defensively, we weren’t very good in the second half,” Johnston said. “It

BOYS BASKETBALL MOUNT CLEMENS 57, ANCHOR BAY 56: Taiwan Jones scored 20 points; and Branden Padgett added 18 for the Tars last Thursday, who had a chance to tie the game with no time left in the fourth quarter but came up short on the second of two foul shots. Anchor Bay scored the first seven points of the MAC crossover game and led 18-11 after one quarter. Mount Clemens was ahead by as many as nine in the third quarter. ANCHOR BAY 18-13-15-10 - 56 MOUNT CLEMENS 11-20-14-12 - 57 ANCHOR BAY (1-4): Taiwan Jones 20, DeAndre Brown 1, Tony Smith 8, Eric Bramos 2, Zach Hite 5, Ryan Larose 2, Branden Padgett 18.

was more fundamental things than anything else, but the first half was really tremendous. The energy was real high and their ability to work together was exceptional. ... Then we didn’t do a great job of that in the second half.” North held Taylor to six points in the first half, while going on its own 10-2 run that capped a 34-16 lead at intermission. North built its largest lead of the game, 3616, to start the second half, but the Rockets answered with their own 11-4 run. “They played a match-up zone and whenever (Taylor) had the ball they had someone staying with her,” New Haven coach Jermaine Clark said. “She had a lot of assists; she was seeing the court well, so she was adjusting to it. But you could tell that she was getting frustrated because she wasn’t getting the open looks that she’s used to getting.” For much of the second half, the teams exchanged baskets until Taylor, who finished with 24 points on 9-of16 from the floor, began to heat up. Her two free throws with 3:15 left in the fourth quarter trimmed the Rockets’ deficit to 10-points, 51-41. However, the Rockets’ comeback attempt was thwarted by North’s duo of Dunford and Oleksiak, who hit back-to-back 3-pointers to seal the win. The Crusaders were lethal from behind the arc, making 6-of12 shots. “We definitely knew that we had to buckle down some more,” said Dunford, who made 3-of-4 3-pointers. “And we did that.”
