It was ‘Anything But Easy’ Your ‘cheers’ could

win $40K St. Johns

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ELSIE – Marie Spiess had two little boys – sons she gave birth to. But she had a nagging sense deep inside that her family wasn’t complete. Complications following her second delivery made the idea of another pregnancy a scary thought for her husband Kyle. What would he do if something happened to her? Her feeling that something was missing, and Kyle’s fear led them to adoption, even though they didn’t know anyone in Elsie, where they live, who had adopted. And their experience adopting their daughter Kaia led Marie to write and publish a book she titled “Anything But Easy: A Memoir of a Special-Needs Adoption from China.” “It (adoption) made perfect sense to me,” says Marie. “We were blessed with two biological children; why not adopt a child already here in this world who needed a family? What followed the decision was a rewarding, but often arduous journey.

Special needs

Despite all the reading she did in advance, Marie didn’t read anything about special needs adoption. And when that option was first proposed, her immediate thought was that it wasn’t for her and her family. “Somewhere in my mind, I had the idea that all children in the special needs category had major medical problems,” she said. “I

Missing from the photo are her father Kyle and brother Mason. didn’t think I had the time or the energy to devote to a child who would require intensive special care, maybe for the rest of her life.” Then they learned almost 70 percent of the children available for adoption in China have some type of special need. Many of those children have minor correctable problems - things like a hernia.

Waiting game

As the wait for a non special needs child grew from months to more than a year, Marie and Kyle decided to switch to a specialneeds adoption. From there

on, things began to happen, relatively rapidly. In less than six months they had been matched with a little girl and were on their way to China to complete even more paperwork, meet their daughter and finalize the adoption.

Time in China

In China, they met their new daughter, who they named Kaia. She wasn’t the healthy little child they were told they were meeting. In addition to the cleft lip – which had been surgically repaired – and cleft palate they already knew about, Kaia had pneumonia, and

she was malnourished. She could barely walk, and she could not crawl at all. Marie’s book includes details of their two weeks in China – the good and the bad. It describes, in detail, the adjustment process they went through when they arrived back home.

Kaia today

Kaia is now 5 years old. She is in kindergarten at Leonard Elementary School in Ovid. She is healthy and active and loves her two older brothers – Mason, 8, and Max, 6. See

An unusual phenomenon is taking place on computers in and around St. Johns. People are cheering. They are “cheering” online in support of St. Johns and its hope to build a splash pad at the main city park. The idea is simple, and it is being sponsored by Readers Digest. Communities enter their city and a dream for that city - in this case, Karla Palmer entered the idea of St. Johns building a splash pad to take the place of the Veterans Memorial Pool that has been closed. Individuals who support their community go online, enter their city’s zip code and “cheer” for their city. The St. Johns dream has really caught on. Two weeks ago, I first registered and cheered. At that time, St. Johns ranked 212th on the list of all cities in the competition. I’ve been cheering daily since than, and watching the meteoric climb as cheers for St. Johns add up. As of this morning, Jan. 13, St. Johns had moved all the way up to ninth place with more than 88,000 cheers. That sounds really great, but an email from Bill Schafer, St. Johns Parks and Recreation Department director, says the best we can do, at the current rate, is fifth place. Now fifth place wouldn’t be all bad. It would mean a $10,000 prize toward the splash pad.

Keep it simple Sue Lounds

But those of us who have been voting daily have our sights set on the big prize $40,000. According to Schafer’s calculations, we need 2,000 people cheering daily until the contest ends Feb. 7 in order to make that happen. You don’t have to live in St. Johns to cheer, you just need to appreciate this community and want the best for it and its youth. And you won’t have to live here to use the splash park once it becomes a reality. Just come on over and visit us. It only takes about 20 seconds of your time each day to cheer. If you have access to the internet and an e-mail address, you are all set. Go to http://wehearyou america.readersdigest.com and put in 48879 for the St. Johns zip code and start cheering for this great community. It is really very easy. I look forward to seeing the cheer total grow each day. And if you have a little extra time, you can read some of the comments people are leaving in support of the idea. To me it is very heartSee

ST. JOHNS – Fourteen and counting, a number greater than last year’s. That’s a combination of participants already signed up to compete in the chili cook off and hot cocoa contest, two of the events highlighting the agenda for Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary’s

third annual “Snow Day at the Emerald.” “This is exciting,” said Kathie Clock, co-chair of the event, a position held since its launch three years ago. “Already we have eleven chili contestants and three contenders with hot cocoa recipes. Both events prom-

ise to be heated challenges.” No pun intended. But the list of activities doesn’t end with chili and cocoa. It includes such outdoor activities as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking around the Emerald golf course and, of course, the popular late afternoon and

evening bonfire. If you’re an insider, there’ll be cards and Wii games along with musical entertainment by the Bill Brown band. “We’re very pleased that Bill has again volunteered his time with us,” said Clock. “Bill’s unique style of entertainment lends a spirited setting to this event.” The first chili contest was won by Robin Motz-Ingalls. The following year Dean Mazzolini captured the chili honors and the hot choco-

late contest was won by Anita Rositas. Each event created much interest and enthusiasm for the day’s theme. Tickets to “Snow Day” include not only the offered activities, but also a hot dog, hamburger and fixings dinner along with an open bar. Where else can you enjoy such a festive setting for only $15? “We’re looking forward to another fun day at the Emerald,” said Motz-Ingalls. “As with most Auxiliary projects,

this event is planned with intentions to raise funds for the hospital. We anticipate this year’s outing will be even more successful than the previous two.” Ingalls serves as co-chair with Clock. Tickets for “Snow Day” may be purchased by contacting Clock, (989) 834-2412, Motz-Ingalls,(989) 224-8320 or any Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary member. – From Sparrow Clinton Auxiliary

Plenty of advice

Marie includes plenty of advice which should be helpful for any prospective adoptive parents – domestic or international, special needs or not. There are many information boxes on everything from how to select an adoption agency to to orphanage behaviors to adjusting at home, and more. Spiess chose the title for her book because it describes her experience. “It was anything but easy,” she said. “People tend to sugar coat adoption, but it isn’t easy.” She was quick to add that it was definitely worth the struggles. “Anything But Easy” is an informative book and a very interesting read, even if you have no intention of adopting. “I decided to write the book because there isn’t much out there on special needs adoption,” she said. “I figured if I could help just one family, it would be worth the effort,” she added, “and I’ve already heard from two families who have read it and thanked me for the information.” “Anything But Easy” is available on Kindle and at Amazon.com or through Marie’s website mariespiess.com Marie can also be contacted through her website, if anyone has questions about the experience.

Carson City Hospital now offers you Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (Cardiac CTA). Under the direction of Dr. Donna Moyer, Carson City Hospital’s chief radiologist board-certified in Cardiac CTA, this non-invasive diagnostic exam provides detailed images of the heart and fast, reliable diagnosis of blocked arteries and heart anatomy. Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Physicians use Cardiac CTA to evaluate heart muscle, coronary arteries, pulmonary vessels, the aorta, and other chest structures. Combining X-ray and advanced CT technology, Cardiac CTA provides detailed images more quickly and with far less discomfort than standard coronary angiograms. Because there is no need for an arterial catheter, the process typically takes less than an hour, with fewer potential complications. Consult with your physician to determine if Cardiac CTA is the right test for you.

What have you got to lose but a few seconds of your time. And what we have to gain far exceeds the value of those few seconds. And if we are among the winners, in addition to winning the money, St. Johns will be one of the stops on the Readers Digest RV tour this summer and our fine city will be included in a feature story in Readers Digest in May 2011.

Members of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office extend their thanks to all of the county’s Neighborhood Watch members.

There are risks factors for disease. Some, like genetics and age are beyond your control, but others, like diet and lifestyle, are up to you. If you want to reduce your risk of cancer, consider maintaining a healthy weight and eating a colorful diet. A variety of colored nutrients (called phytochemicals or antioxidants) found primarily in plants appear to protect the body against the normal damage that occurs to tissues every day. Because such damage is associated with an increased cancer risk, people who eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancers. Studies on weight also show that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is associated with better weight maintenance. Millions of Americans try vitamin and antioxidant supplements in hopes of preventing disease, but there is no evidence that supplements reduce cancer risk. It is likely that whole foods contain important, but as yet unidentified components that are not included in supplements. Taking excess supplements, in some cases, can be harmful. The American Cancer Society recommends eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. A serving is considered ½ cup or a piece of fruit about the size of a tennis ball. A variety provides an assortment of protective phytochemicals and antioxidants such as: % Beta-carotene, found in many foods that are orange in color, including sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, winter squash, apricots, pumpkin, papaya and mangos. Some green, leafy vegetables, including collard greens, spinach, and kale, also are rich in beta-carotene. % Lutein, best known for its association with healthy eyes, is abundant in green, leafy vegetables such as collard greens, spinach and kale. $ '2*/0+.+ is a potent antioxidant found in tomatoes, watermelon, guava, papaya, apricots, pink grapefruit, blood oranges and other foods. $ (,1)-,. % is found in high abundance in many fruits and vegetables such as oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, strawberries, peppers and baked potatoes. $ (,1)-,. & is found in nuts, especially hazelnuts and almonds, vegetable oils, wheat germ, seeds, whole-grain products and peanut butter. So try eating your way to a healthier you. If nothing else, you’ll feel good and have a little extra spring in your step for 2011.

ST. JOHNS– As part of an effort to improve the schoolto-home relationship, St. Johns Middle School recently established a new organization called the SJMS Community Group. The purpose of this group is to bring together parents, guardians, teachers, staff, students and the community of SJMS for the benefit and gain of students enrolled at the school. The group is similar to a PTO, but hopes to go beyond what a typical PTO would tackle. Founding members of the group met a few times to outline this purpose and to adopt by-laws, which will soon be available on the website. For now, there is a new SJMS community group page families can access from the middle school home page. The group is hoping parents and families will check here often for information about what is going on at SJMS. The group decided upon the name “St. Johns Middle School Community Group” because one of their main goals is to involve all community stakeholders in supporting

ATTORNEY EDWARD W. JACKSON JACKSON, JACKSON & ASSOCIATES, P.C.

AGGRESSIVE DEBT COLLECTION

SJMS students, not just parents and staff. Some of the possible goals the group has already discussed include aiding families with the elementary to middle school transition, providing communication on any and all events taking place at the middle school, and improving volunteerism. The group hopes to be a positive source of inspiration and communication at SJMS. In addition to electing officers, the group has already tackled such tasks as appointing parent liaisons to assist staff with various grade-level needs, selecting a student representative, and assigning parents to various committees. However, more community members are still needed to complete the entire roster of appointments the group hopes

to fill. Anyone who wants to get on the group’s information contact list should send an email to Tammy Van Norman, SJMS teacher and staff representative for the new group, at vannormant@sjredwings.org. Those who are additionally interested in becoming involved with the group, or who just have more questions, are encouraged to attend the next meeting which will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 25 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in room 607 at the middle school. Meetings for the remainder of the school year will be held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. – Lara Boettger, for St. Johns Middle School Community Group

St. Johns analyzes investments, considers policies • City investment analysis: As required by the city charter, the treasurer and city manager reviewed accounts and investment products utilized by the City for its deposits and reserves. A presentation was made to the City Commission based on this analysis and findings. The City continues to invest prudently and conservatively as a means of protecting public revenues used for operations and capital outlays. • Medical marijuana moratorium: As city staff continues to gather information regarding local regulation of medical marijuana possession and use, the City Commission felt it necessary to extend the moratorium now in place by an additional 90 days.

Led by five points from Jordyn Nurenberg, St. Johns went on a 7-0 run to go up 9-7 to end the first quarter. Amanda Glowacki and Alex Hallenbeck each scored four points in the second quarter to help the Redwings build a 20-16 half-time lead. “We struggled to get any rhythm offensively tonight.” Redwing Coach Mark Lasceski said. “Jackson did a nice job of making us work hard for every basket. Thank goodness we played well defensively to help us stay in the lead most of the night.” Nurenberg scored four unanswered points to put St.

Johns up by six early in the third quarter. Skylar Hebert made a layup late in the third quarter to give St. Johns a 30-24 lead. Mikayla Silm hit back-toback jump shots early in the fourth quarter to give St. Johns a nine-point lead. Lumen cut the Redwing lead to three points with eight seconds left. Nurenberg made a pair of free throws to seal the win for St. Johns. Nurenberg led St. Johns with a double-double, scoring 18 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Hallenbeck had six points and six assists. Silm scored six points. Glowacki had five points. St. Johns started slowly against DeWitt, scoring only three points in the first quarter.

DEWITT – Senior Scott Besko tossed in 20 points and junior Jon Harden scored 14 to lead St. Johns to a 63-38 win over non-league DeWitt. The Redwings were coming off a 51-49 win over Jackson Lumen Christi Jan. 7. St. Johns jumped out quickly on the Panthers, taking a 16-1 lead late in the first quarter. “It’s always a big win to beat our rivals, and it’s big for our team to go 6-0 to start the season,” Harden said. “It feels unbelievable; we’ve been working our tails off in every single practice and really focusing on our team effort.” Harden, who started slowly this season, has picked up the pace over the last few weeks. He arrives at the high school gym every morning at 6:30 a.m. to practice his shooting. “I shoot 100 from around the key, then I step out to the three (point line) and pump fake and do one dribble left and one dribble right,” Harden said. It was the first time in his fiveyear career that Redwing coach Caleb Miller has beaten DeWitt. It’s also the best start of the season for Miller. “The guys keep working out a victory every week, and we keep emphasizing defense,” Miller said. “Our number is 50 (holding teams to 50 or fewer points) and this is our fifth out of six games under 50 points. Slowly but surely they are starting to believe in the defense, and we are starting to play as a team.” Bo Moore, a Redwing junior, scored 13 points. St. Johns went up by 17 points late in the second quarter on baskets by Chad VandenBerg, Zach Glanz and Harden. A long two-pointer by Besko and a drive by to the hoop by Harden gave St. Johns a 31-12 lead with less than a minute left in the first half. DeWitt’s Jordan Brown hit a pair of free throws with a second left in the first half to cut the St. Johns lead to 16. Harden scored six points in the first three minutes of the second half to put St. Johns up 39-16. DeWitt scored seven unanswered points. Moore hit a three and VandenBerg put back a rebound to keep a 20-plus point advantage for St. Johns. The Redwings opened the fourth

Besko hit a pair of free throws and Moore, on backto-back Panther possessions, stole the ball and drove to the hoop for uncontested layups. Moore next hit a pair of free throws to put St. Johns up 56-29. DeWitt went on a 7-0 run to cut the St. Johns lead to 20 points. Moore scored the last points of the game from the free-throw line. “Bo is a kid that gives you a lot of energy,” Miller said. “He’s probably our best defender on the perimeter. Bo’s the type of kid that if he puts his mind to it, he can get it done.” The Redwings had 12 turnovers and forced DeWitt to give up the ball 18 times. St. Johns outrebound DeWitt 29-21. DeWitt (2-4) was playing without Jordan Johnson, who was out with the flu. Johnson is the Panthers their top scorer, averaging 25 points per game.

He scored 40 points in the Panthers win over Fowlerville last week. “The first half we were all kind of standing around looking for Jordan, and he wasn’t there,” DeWitt coach Ron Marlan said. “In the second half, I was proud of how we played. We talked about how we had to find another scorer, and I think we’ve found one. Jordan Brown had a really nice game.” Brown, a 5-foot, 9-inch senior guard, led the Panthers with 16 points. He scored 14 points in the second half. Against Jackson Lumen Christi, the Redwings looked to run away with the game early, outscoring the Titans 15-4 in the first quarter. Lumen continued to chip away at the Redwing lead, outscoring St. Johns in each of the last three quarters. Harden tossed in 18 points. Besko added 12, and Nate Feldpausch had 11 points.

Relay for Life meeting is Jan. 17 by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against the disease. Relay For Life is a fun event which brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups – all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease. “Relay For Life is the community’s chance to unite in the fight against cancer and support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Shelly Hunt, event chair. “Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let St. Johns and Clin-

ton County know that cancer can be defeated.” The event is held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at the St. Johns High School Football Stadium, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the event, signifying that cancer never sleeps. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. If you would like to join the Relay For Life of St. Johns as a volunteer or team participant, call the Molly Day of the American Cancer Society at (517) 664-1404, or visit www.relayforlife.org/ stjohnsmi – From American Cancer Society
