St. Johns’ LaBar wins state diving crown By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

Dream becomes reality

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

DUPLAIN TWP. – Katelyn Hennings is passionate about her dogs. Providing sufficient exercise for the high-energy Siberian huskies has meant lots of bike rides for Hennings. Her usual means of exercising the dogs is to harness them to her bike and take off down the country road she lives on. “I got tired of riding my bike in the winter,” said Hennings. That led her to an idea for a project in her woodworking class at Ovid-Elsie High School where she is a junior.

“She came to me and asked if she could build a dog sled,” said Everett Smith, O-E woods teacher. Smith gave her a thumbs-up on the idea and then set out to gather all the information needed to make the dog sled a reality. His first step was to get online and find out what sort of resource people he could find in Michigan. He spoke to a woman on the west side of the state who heads up one of Michigan’s dog sled organizations. Then he got the name and contact information for a woman in Ann Arbor. See

YIPSILANTI - St. Johns sophomore diver Brandon LaBar took first place at the Division 2 state finals, making him the first Redwing diver to ever win a state title. He is the first Redwing state champion since Cody Stinnett won the 50-yard freestyle in 2006. The Redwing team also had a solid performance, finishing eighth, their best finish since the state switched from Class A and Class BC-D tournaments to ranking by divisions in 2003. St. Johns had 11th place finishes in 2004 and in 2006. LaBar, with 453.10 points, easily outpaced secondplace Elliot Littman of Berkley with 440.75 points. Redwing diving coach Jim Makarauskas said he was impressed with the poise LaBar showed at the state meet. Under MHSAA rules, divers completed eight of the 11-dive rotation in the March 11 preliminary round. The top 16 from preliminaries advanced to the final’s round the next day. “The circumstances that he did it under were most impressive,” Makarauskas said.

“I called this woman in Ann Arbor and asked if we could borrow a sled,” said Smith. “She let me go down and pick up a sled without ever even meeting me.” Smith said the dog sled project has some surprising facts, and has brought about some very interesting results. “First of all, just to build a dog sled is pretty unusual,” he said. “Then to have it be a woman who is doing it, and a high school student at that, it’s very amazing.” In his research on dog sleds, Smith made another amazing and very helpful discovery. He found Clyde Risdon, a Laingsburg resident, who has built lots of dog sleds over the years. Risdon says he’s been building sleds for years. “I sold my first one in 1980,” said Risdon, “and I started building them a couple years before that.” Risdon said he had bought some sleds, but never found anything that handled quite like he wanted. That led him to some design changes. “I’d say I’ve probably made somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 sleds,” said Risdon. “At one time we were making more than 100 per year.” Risdon said a good sled costs between $1,000 and $1,500 and starter sleds are about $450. “We now make a whole line,” he said. Risdon came to Ovid-Elsie High School March 11 to help Hennings with some of the final details of her sled attaching the protective vinyl strips on the runners, for example. And as he helped her with the work, he explained to her why he does things the way he does them. He could sense that this isn’t a passing fancy for Hennings. After high school, she wants to raise dogs and race them. “I’m not exactly sure what I want to do, but I want to raise dogs, work with kids and be able to stay at home,” she said.

The project has taken about 10 weeks, according to Smith. “We had to build four jigs to shape the parts of the sled,” he said. “Katie has actually been working on the sled for eight or nine weeks - one hour each day in class, plus she comes in before school lots of days.” The white birch used to build the sled was cut from the woods on the school property. Then it was dried and planed into thin pieces that Hennings laminated together and shaped on the special jigs they made. When word of Hennings’ project got out, a man gave her a planer so she can continue to work with wood even when she isn’t in one of Smith’s classes. “A lot of great things have come out of this project,” said Smith. Another offshoot of the project is a piece for the “Michigan Outdoors” television show. James Ford, who teaches radio and television production at Ovid-Elsie, has been videotaping much of the project and is doing a feature piece for the show. It will air sometime soon, according to Ford. Hennings says the time involved has been the most challenging part of the project for her. But she says she thinks it is worth it. Though the snow was pretty much gone before the sled was complete, Hennings was still able to hitch two of her

Now how many have said their hearing aids make some sounds too loud, don’t work well in noise, or they can’t tell if they are really helping them hear at all? Audiologists and dispensers try to make hearing aids function the best they can to give the patient a good outcome. But there were always a lot of difficulties surrounding comfort and understanding of speech. Let’s say you have a small child, an average sized wo woman, and a very large man, all with the same hearing loss. All hearing Julie Pabst aids would be Audiologist programmed the same way, according to the hearing aid manufacturers software. But the ear canals themselves must figure into the process, as well. Without diving into too much physics, ear canal size and shape for the child would be quite small. The woman would be close to the average size ear canals and the man’s ear canals would be quite large and long. The child would receive too much power from the hearing aids, the woman’s fitting would be close, and the man’s hearing aids would seem very quiet. All hearing aid manufacturers base their science off the average ear. But no one has the average ear. Live speech mapping is the latest innovative approach to hearing aid fitting which uses natural speech to show how effective digital hearing THEIR HEARING AIDS?

aids are in helping you to hear speech. With digital speech mapping, an actual speech signal, not tones or hissing sounds, is used to test the hearing aids while inserted in the patient’s ears. This allows for the shape and size of the patient’s ear canals to be included in the fitting process, as well as using the most important signal we hear, speech. For hearing aid fittings to be successful, speech must be appropriately amplified with respect to loudness, clarity, and comfort. Soft speech should be perceived as soft, moderate speech sounds should be perceived as moderate, and loud speech sounds should not reach the patient’s discomfort level. Speech mapping helps to provide a clear “visual” sense of the hearing loss, and the benefits or perhaps the limitations that your current hearing aids offer in relation to actual speech. While wearing hearing aids, a tiny probe microphone is inserted into the ear canal while the hearing aids are running, then a stimulus (voices/ music) is used to measure the output and shows if the hearing aids are amplifying sounds appropriately. The Live Speech Map is displayed on a monitor through easily-understood graphics so that you can actually see sounds that are missing and be presented with a clear visual sense of hearing loss and aided benefits relating to actual speech. It allows you to see graphically just how the aid is performing in a live, real world environment. Once we see what sounds you’re missing, we’ll be able to tune your personal hearing aids until it restores the missing speech patterns and tones. So, not only will you hear the difference a hearing aid makes with your speech, you’ll be able to see the sounds being restored visually as well. A successful hearing aid fitting should be a dynamic, patient-centered

Auxiliary makes backpacks Potter at work is First Sunday attraction

ST. JOHNS – A contingent of members from First Congregational Church in St. Johns, headed by Dr. Dave Minnick, will be heading for Cusco, Peru on March 23 to work among the children residing in orphanages located in that city. Part of the mission includes delivery of at least 100 handmade backpacks, assembled by area residents for gifts to the children. At last count, the effort was closing in on the goal of 100 backpacks, when 17 members of Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary joined the undertaking by spending an evening sewing and piecing fabric together. A force of three sewing machines and many nimble fingers completed the assembly of 15 backpacks in a matter of a little over three hours, based on instructions and design provided by the group making the trip. The sewing bee was coordinated by auxiliary co-president Shelley Gunther who suggested the project to members. “This was something that not only fell within the auxiliary’s slate of activities,” Ms Gunther said, “but it was also a community endeavor. Members of the hospital staff were part of the mission and our members felt committed to the purpose.” All fabric, thread and materials were contributed by individual auxiliary members. – From Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary

Scrappy and Marie: The greatest love story Guest column By Jenny McCampbell

healed. Scrappy also needs a new suit for the occasion. Sadly, Scrappy and Lovely Marie do not have nearly enough money to complete their dream. Would you please support these star-crossed lovers so they may live happily ever after near the depot in

Scrappy and Lovely Marie had been together and very much in love many years ago, but due to a few switches on their life journey, unfortunately they were separated until their later years. Happily, recently Scrappy and Lovely Marie found they were once again in the same town: St. Johns. They desperately wanted to be together again. With the help of their devoted friends, Scrappy proposed to the Lovely Marie and Marie accepted. The wedding plans began. The years had taken a toll on both Lovely Marie and Courtesy photo Scrappy. Although they felt just Scrappy and Lovely Marie hope to be reunited on the fine inside, they had many tracks near the Northern Clinton Railway Museum in cosmetic problems.

Tumblers wrap up season bmcleod@lsj.com

MASON - Redwing gymnasts finished ninth at the CAAC league meet, outpacing last place East Lansing 101.75-87.325 Feb. 19. “We turned in some good performances and had less falls overall for the day,” St. Johns coach Deb Davis said. “Our goal for the day was not to finish the meet in last place, and we accomplished that goal.” Gymnastics powerhouse Grand Ledge took first place with 150.825 points. Grand Ledge went on to win the state title. The combined Haslett/Williamston/Bath team finished second with 139.85 points. Emily Simon, Alexis Campbell, Randee Roy Paige Hufnagel and Paige Burnash all earned points for the Redwings. Shelby Jones turned in a personal best on the vault as did Simon on the bars. The Redwings came up short to East Lansing in the final dual meet of the sea-

son, falling to the Trojans 115.6-107.05. Feb. 16. Simon led the Redwings, taking second on vault and floor and third on beam to finish second in all around with 27.80 points. Burnash was third on vault and took third in all around with 27.85 points. Lori Platte was second on beam with a 6.65. Jones, Roy, Hufnagel and Campbell each scored for the Redwings. Turning in personal-best performances were Burnash (bars), Campbell (floor and all around), Hufnagel (bars and all around) Roy, bars beam and all around) and Platte (bars). The Redwings competed in the “Last Chance for Fun Invitational” at Mason Feb. 24, competing against gymnasts from Mason, Haslett/ Williamston/Bath, East Lansing and Jackson Northwest. There were two divisions at the meet, regional qualifiers and a second division for gymnasts who did not qualify for regionals.

What’s for

In the qualified division, Burnash finished 10th on vault and seventh in all around. Redwing freshman Anastasia Cameron was third on vault and bars and fifth on beam. Simon was seventh on vault and fifth in all around. In the non-qualified division, Campbell was 10th on vault and third all around. Roy was 11th on bars and first in all around. Jones finished 12th on vault. Hufnagel finished fourth on beam. “Every gymnast placed in an event, which was a nice way to end our regular season,” Davis said. “These gymnasts have come a long way with improvement from the beginning of the season all the way through to the end, capping it off with this meet.” Burnash, Cameron and Simon qualified for the March 5 regional at Haslett. Grand Ledge won the regional with 149.725 points. St. Johns finished 11th out of 14 teams. Cameron placed in the vault (8.8), bars (8.0) and floor (8.475).

Sports Fulton boys advance to regional final By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

WEBBERVILLE - Juniors Corey Hungerford scored 18 points and Tyler Walden added 16 to lead Fulton to a 57-45 win over Big Rapids Crossroads in the Class D regional semifinal March 14. The Pirates advanced to meet Muskegon Catholic in the regional final March 16 with results too late for this edition. Muskegon beat Lansing Christian 74-60 in their regional semifinal game. Fulton jumped out to an 11-0 first-quarter lead before the Cougars (22-2) went on an 8-0 run to cut the Pirate lead to three at

glass to stop the Shamrock run. A pair of baskets by Lindsey Hufnagel and baskets by Miller and Krista Jandernoa tied the score at 12 at the first buzzer. “We knew Fowler was going to play extremely tough, and they did. We shot the ball a little better than we have been, and they kept getting after us,” St. Patrick coach Al Schrauben said. “I never really felt comfortable until there were about 50 seconds left.” The Shamrocks opened the second quarter with a pair of baskets by senior Nicole Schneider to go up by four. St. Pats again looked to pull away, but Jandernoa nailed a pair of three pointers to knot the score at 18. Leading by three points at half time, the Shamrocks took control in the third quar-

ter, holding a 42-30 lead at the buzzer. The Shamrocks started the game with full-court press defense, but switched to what Schrauben described as a “very aggressive 2-3 zone” to trap Fowler ball handlers. “We don’t want them to stand and look, if we can get after people, we are going to do it,” he said. Fowler opened the fourth quarter with an 8-4 run to cut the Shamrock lead to eight midway through the fourth quarter on a basket by Hufnagel. Schneider hit 4-of-6 free throws in the final minutes to seal the win. Schneider led St. Pats with 23 points. “Their experience, the fact that they have been here, may have gotten to us a little,” Fowler coach Nate Goerge said. Fowler hasn’t been to a

“We knew coming in that they were going to be a great team; they are very athletic.” – Junior, Corey Hungerford the buzzer. “We knew coming in that they were going to be a great team; they are very athletic,” Hungerford said. “We knew we would have to play defense, and we would just have to out work them, and that’s what we did.” Fulton responded to the Cougar run with 14-2 run to stop any Big Rapids threat. Walden hit two of his four three pointers during the run.

The Cougars cut the Fulton lead to nine points at the end of the third quarter, but would get no closer. “I don’t care what kind of league or what kind of schedule you have, when you are 22-1 you’ve got to have some players,” Fulton coach Todd Walden said about Big Rapids Crossroads. The Cougars are a public charter school and plays in the West Michigan D League. “We knew we would have to limit Jalen Carter,” Walden said about the Cougars top scorer. “I thought we only lost him a couple of times, and he made us pay for it. We did a good job of keeping them away from the basket by eliminating their dribble drives.” Walden said Brandon Trefil did a great job of defending Carter. “He was in his hip pocket most of the second half,

but the rest of the guys were there helping out too,” he said. Carter fought through the Pirate defensive effort to lead all scorers with 22 points. He hit five threepoint shots. Big Rapids coach Jason Kostecki said they were unable to match up with the Pirates’ size and had to drop out of their full-court press early in the first quarter. The Cougars have relied on the full-court press throughout the season. “They are big kids and it was kind of hard for us in full court,” he said. “We got out of our rhythm.” Fulton, who finished the league season tied with Pewamo-Westphalia for the top spot in the CMAC, won the district title with a 61-48 win over Mt. Pleasant Sacred Heart March 11. Walden led the Pirates with 18 points. Hungerford scored 16 points and Cody Johnson added 11.

BEAL CITY - Fowler’s post-season run came to an end in the girls basketball regional final with a 56-45 loss to Portland St. Patrick March 10. Fowler ended the regular season with an 8-8 overall record, but won three games in districts and the regional semifinal. But the Lady Eagles ran into a familiar foe in the regional final. Fowler had lost to the Shamrocks twice during the regular season. St. Patrick advanced to the state quarterfinal where the Shamrocks lost 54-39 to Central Lake March 15. Fowler fell behind early, trailing 7-0 midway through the first quarter. Fowler’s Krista Miller banked in a three pointer off the high

regional final since 1999. “We found ourselves forcing the issue a little bit and kind of forced ourselves into some unnecessary turnovers,” Goerge said. “The one thing I hope is that people don’t lose the sight of is how hard we worked to get to this point. With Sacred Heart in our district, what a tough road we had. I’m very proud of the girls.” Hufnagel led the Eagles with 24 points. Jandernoa scored 12 points.

ST. JOHNS - Eastern had to battle against a scrappy team on its home court on in the Class A district semifinals March 9. But host St. Johns didn’t have enough to derail LaDontae Henton and the Quakers. Henton, a senior forward who is one of five finalists for Michigan’s Mr. Basketball award, had 15 points and 12 rebounds to lead Eastern to a hard-fought 60-48 victory. The Quakers started pressing in the second quar-

ter, turning a two-point firstquarter lead into a 15-point half-time lead. “We see a lot of teams like that in our conference, and we play them even in our nonleague schedule, and it is something we struggled with,” Redwings coach Caleb Miller said. “I think that was the difference.” St. Johns (14-8) didn’t go away in the second half, actually outscoring the Quakers 34-31 after halftime. “They played with heart, and they played with passion and they didn’t want it to end,” Miller said of

his team. “Eastern’s a great team; they’ve got the likely Mr. Basketball and an outstanding supporting cast and excellent coaching.” St. Johns was led by senior guard Scott Besko, who entered the game off a 39-point performance that helped end Waverly’s season two days earlier. Besko scored and shot from practically everywhere again against the Quakers on his way to 23 points. “The second half he really got more shots up than what we wanted him to get,” Watts said. “We just wanted

Dive: LaBar wins St. Johns’ first-ever diving title Continued from page 1

LaBar was the last diver to compete in the 16-diver rotation. Heading into the 11th and final dive, LaBar had chosen a back one and a half with a half twist for a 2.1 degree of difficulty. “The kid in second place was ahead of me (in the rotation) and I knew I had to get (at least) 29 points on my last

dive,” LaBar said. “I got 42. It felt pretty good.” Makarauskas said they worked on the 11-dive list for several weeks, determining what dives would give LaBar the best chance for the state crown. LaBar’s highest scoring dive was a front one and a half with two twists for a difficulty of 2.6. It is one of LaBar’s favorite dives and it showed with the judges awarding 54 points. “The judges loved him and rewarded him for the quality of his dives,” Makarauskas said. Makarauskas said the key was to choose dives that had enough difficulty to earn points, but also to choose dives that LaBar was comfortable with and could consistently perform well. “I tried to do what I’ve done in practice over the past three months and stay consistent,” LaBar said. “States isn’t a place to try anything new.” Makarauskas said some of the divers threw some very difficult dives into their rotation, but they didn’t do them well. “You have to have a strong enough list of dives, but then you have to be able to execute them,” Makarauskas said. “Every dive he did, he executed them very well.” Makarauskas spoke to a coach after LaBar took the state crown and he told Makarauskas that his diver put the hardest dives at the end in hopes of putting pressure on LaBar. But LaBar responded well, adding to his lead on each of the three dives.

“He’s a very competitive kid who competes well,” Makarauskas said. “He has this little easy smile, and in the heat of battle, he has that easy smile that gives you the sense that he is calm. I’m sure he was nervous, but he handles it well.” LaBar, now 15, started swimming with the St. Johns Sea Lions when he was five. He began diving in middle school as part of the swim team. In the off season, LaBar trains five days a week with the Spartan Dive Club at MSU where MSU coach Eric Best is one of his coaches. “Through the club he’s gotten really excellent coaching,” Makarauskas said. “When he started diving in high school (for St. Johns), one of the coaches told me ‘we think Brennan will be a state champion (for the club)’ and I remember thinking ‘wow, they think a lot of him.’” LaBar holds the 11-dive record for St. Johns. He set the record last year, then broke his record three times this season with the state finals score his best so far. LaBar narrowly missed breaking the six-dive record for the school that is held by Jake Hale. LaBar is somewhat unique among divers in that he also competes in swimming events. He is the top Redwing in the 100 breaststroke and swam the breaststroke leg for the 200 medley relay team that qualified for the state meet. “I like being able to help the team with swimming See

events,” he said. LaBar has hopes of extending his career by diving for a Division 1 college.

Redwing swimmers eighth at state finals

“We swam incredibly well on Friday,” Redwing coach Kim Brewbaker said about the preliminary held March 11. “This was a tough meet this year. Our guys stepped up and placed themselves well.” The top 16 in each event from the preliminary round advanced to the March 12 finals. The top eight competed in the “A” final. Those finishing in ninth through 16th place in the preliminary round competed in the “B” final, and could not move up into the “A” final, regardless of times. Brewbaker said they were hoping for a top 15 fin-

ish at states, but after the preliminary round, they felt a top 10 was within reach. “We are so proud of these guys. They shaved and tapered just for the meet and it paid off for them,” Brewbaker said. “They really competed with heart and it showed in every race.” Redwing senior Nick Grider finished fifth in the 50 freestyle with a time of 21.63 and was sixth in the 100 freestyle (47.39). Sophomore Ben Grider, Nick’s younger brother, finished 14th in the 50 freestyle (22.51) and 12th in the 100 freestyle (48.62). The Redwing 200 freestyle relay team of Alex Harry, Jeff Makarauskas, B. Grider and N. Grider finished fourth with a time of 1:27.03, setting a new St. Johns High School record. The same Redwing team finished ninth in the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:13.95, setting another Red-

wing record. Ironically, in the preliminary round of the 400 freestyle, the Redwings finished ninth, eliminating them from competing in the “A Final.” If St. Johns had been able to compete in the “A Final,” their time would have earned them fourth place. In preliminary competition, the Redwing 200 medley relay team of Aaron Stine, LaBar, Harry and Makarauskas finished 18th with a time of 1:43.80. Jared Gregory was 19th in the diving competition with 151.25 points. Stine was 30th in the backstroke with a time of 58.69. “We competed in a very tough Division 2 this year and were concerned about how we would compete at this level,” Brewbaker said. “All of our guys showed they can compete with some of the top competitors in the state.” The Redwings ended the

season with an 11-0 record and won the CAAC Red Division. - Sue Lounds, editor of the Clinton County News, contributed to this story.

Right: The Redwings qualified three divers for the Division 2 regional competition and six swimmers for the state finals. Qualify for the regional diving meet were (front, from left) Jared Gregory, Jerry Cupples and Brennan LaBar. Gregory and LaBar advanced to the state meet. Qualifying for the state meet in individual and relay events were (top, from left) Peter Sperry, Aaron Stine, Nick Grider, Ben Grider, Jeff Makarauskas and Alex Harry. LaBar also qualified for states as a member of the 200 medley relay team.

Carson City Hospital partners with CMU College of Medicine CARSON CITY — Cason City Hospital and Central Michigan University College of Medicine recently developed a partnership to provide clinical training to the university’s medical students. As part of the college’s clinical experience, students will have access to Carson City Hospital facilities, physician and patients. This agreement falls under CMU’s commitment to Nicole and Stephen help train physicians who Doud will practice in central and northern Michigan. The CMU College of Medicine will enroll its first class of students in 2013. “This academic and health-care facility partnership will create new opportunities for both organizations,” said CCH Pres-

ident and CEO Bruce L. Traverse, FACHE. “CCH has a long history of being a teaching hospital, and we look forward to embracing that heritage and welcoming CMU students into our facility to learn and develop as health-care professionals.” Traverse said it makes sense for CMU students to receive training in rural and small community settings such as offered in Carson City, since these locations are currently experiencing severe physician shortages. The agreement between CMU and CCH will remain in force for seven years, providing students with clinical privileges and supervision during their education. – From Carson City Hospital
