They were later found to be part of a much larger crime ring throughout the state. The arrests also closed dozens of commercial larceny cases. Harold Porubsky was also recognized though he was not present to receive his award. Porubsky called 9-1-1 Aug. 30, 2010 to report two or three males in a suspicious vehicle parked at Harr’s Jewelry at about 1 a.m. Officers were dispatched and discovered the males had broken into the BP gas station and one was still inside. Porubsky’s quick thinking and call to 9-1-1 led to the arrest of two suspects who were apprehended and lodged in Clinton County Jail. Further investigation resulted in the recovery of 10 stolen guns and cleared a number of breaking and entering in the tri-county area, according to Madden. “The quick thinking of these two civilians resulted in several criminals and drug addicts being taken off the streets,” said Madden. Madden also presented several awards to members of the police department. Officer William French and Sgt. Robert Wilkie received Certificates of Merit from the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police for their efforts Sept. 1, 2010 during a fire at Autumn Ridge Apartments. The fire blocked exit from one of the apartments, so the officers entered the apartment through a window and helped the woman who occupied the apartment escape. In all 14 apartments were evacuated with the assistance of French and Wilkie. Sgt. Scott DeWitt received a commendation from the chiefs of police for his traffic enforcement, particularly drunk driving arrests, over the past three years. “In the last three years, Sgt. DeWitt made 1,410 traffic stops,” said Madden. “He wrote 521 citations and arrested 44 individuals for drunk driving.” Lt. Michael Carey was awarded a Departmental Citation from the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police for his “diligence and investigative perseverance” in the case of the Fifth-Third Bank robbery. Carey continued to work on the case and investigate any and all leads, according to Madden. His efforts eventually led to the arrest of the individual, who was charged with five separate bank robberies in

the mid-Michigan area. “This guy was an habitual offender who made the mistake of coming to Carey’s town,” said Madden. Carey also received a Letter of Commendation from the East Lansing Police Department for assisting them in solving a bank robbery there. April Wilson, administration assistant at the St. Johns

Police Department, was honored for efforts on behalf of the St. Johns police and fire departments. Over the past few years, Wilson has written several grant requests for the two departments. Through her efforts, the fire department won grants totalling more than $100,000 which will be used for needed equipment. Grants received by the police department, thanks to Wilson’s efforts, enabled the department to purchase two patrol bicycles and protective vests for all of the St. Johns officers. “The most recent grant she got is for the purchase of in-car computers for all police agencies within Clinton County,” said Madden. The final award was the Director’s Award, for a member of the fire department. For the second time in the five year history of the award, it was presented to Capt. Mark Wineland. Wineland has been with the department since 1997 and was been a captain since 2009. Last year he donated 59.5 hours to the fire department, in addition to all the hours he spends on department training, drills, meetings and fire calls. In addition, Wineland has logged more than 600 hours of class time since joining the department. “Mark wants it noted that his family should also be recognized,” said Madden. They make sacrifices and allow him the time necessary to perform his duties with the department, he said.

Volunteers needed; BUDGET TIRE CENTER shortage is severe NOW OPEN IN ST. JOHNS! Community response has been strong since the need for more volunteers for Meals On Wheels was announced, but volunteer needs at Tri-County Office on Aging are still severe. Last month the Tri-County Office on Aging revealed that Meals On Wheels, which provides more than 400,000 hot, nutritious meals annually in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties to older adults and people with disabilities, needed more than 170 new volunteers. Volunteers are also critically needed for the Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program. “We continue to see strong community support for this program and have had almost 50 new volunteer applications in the last

month, but we still need at least 100 more volunteers!” said Jim Allen, nutrition director for the Tri-County Office on Aging. Routes are designed so deliveries can be completed on a typical lunch hour. Companies, working individuals, retirees, stay-at-home parents, religious and community organizations can all adopt a Meals On Wheels route or volunteer. Training takes less than an hour. To find out more about volunteering in Clinton County or to apply, contact the Meals On Wheels Office at (989) 224-3600. Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program volunteers help people understand Medicare & Medicaid, enroll in Medicare

prescription drug coverage and review supplemental insurance needs. “We help over 2,000 people each year who are overwhelmed and confused by the prescription options. We train volunteers so they can help people cut through the confusion and make insurance options understandable,” said Stacey Humphrey, program dDirector. Five to ten new volunteers are needed and experience with insurance is not necessary. For more information call (517) 887-1416. To apply as a Tri-County Office on Aging volunteer for either program or to explore other volunteer opportunities, visit the website at www.tcoa.org. – From Tri-County Office on Aging

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

ST. JOHNS – Diane Zuker, Clinton County clerk is offering extended hours on Wednesday, April 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. for the purpose of accepting passport applications. As of June 1, 2009, all travelers are required to have a passport for land border crossings. This is not the first time the Clinton County Clerk’s Office has offered extra hours for passports. There have been four previous occasions the Clerk’s Office has opened for the sole purpose of accepting passport applications, all of which have been very successful according to Clerk Zuker. If these special hours do not work for you, the Clerk’s Of-

fice accepts passport applications on a regular basis during their normal business hours. However this will all change effective May 1, due to new directives from the U.S. Department of State. Clerk Zuker noted the changes are a result of the mandates by the Department of State and will have minimal impact on Clinton County customers. Through combined efforts, the Clerks Office has shifted the passport application processing over to the Register of Deeds office. After May 1, the Clerks Office will continue to provide passport applicants with general information re-

garding passports both in the office and on their web page, in addition to taking passport photographs. The only difference customers may notice is the fact that they will have to execute their applications in the Office of the Register of Deeds. Travelers who need additional information about passport regulations may visit the Clinton County Clerk’s passport web page at http://www.clinton-county.org/clerk/ passport.htm or U.S. Department of State web site at http:/ /travel.state.gov or may call the Clerk’s Office at (989) 224-5140. – From Clinton County Clerk’s Office

Although occasional arguing with your partner or child is not necessarily abnormal, persistent relationship and/ or family tension can be concerning and may benefit from some level of psychological guidance. Ongoing relationship difficulties are usually the result of poor communication among the parties involved, but they can certainly develop in response to other stressors.

Letters to the editor Kindness and caring appreciated

The daughters of Dorothy Ashenfelter would like to express their deep gratitude for the many visits and acts of kindness their mom received while recuperating from her broken hip. Special thanks goes to Dr. Rajesh and to the staff of Hazel Findlay for their excellent and compassionate care which allowed her to be able to return home before her passing. We would like to thank our family, friends and neighbors for the cards, flowers, prayers, food and hard work to help us after the death of our mother. Heartfelt thanks also to Pastor Heimsoth for his comforting words and to the church ladies for a lovely memorial lunch.

Concerned over events in Lansing

Two recent events in Lansing give me grave cause for concern. First, the senior tax and the other tax increase can’t possibly be about the budget. Along with the tax increase of $1.7 billion, there is a $1.8 billion tax giveaway to corporations. That $100 million difference actually increases the

deficit, it doesn’t reduce it at all. Reducing corporate taxes by strapping it on to the backs of our senior citizens is not productive, not right, and definitely not fair. My second concern deals with the control and management of our own local governments. Government should be run like an efficient business but not by an outside corporation, nor for the benefit of corporations. Lansing recently passed a financial emergency bill giving the governor the right to dismiss locally elected officials and in their place install a corporation to run, and even possibly eliminate, some struggling municipalities and cities. Our local voice will in effect be snuffed out, and our local culture and identity lost. It will be possible for an appointed corporation to make decisions that have a serious negative impact on the lives and well being our children and grandchildren. I absolutely believe that local government is the best form of government. Citizens have access to their local officials who understand the problems we face in our neighborhoods and in our communities. Local officials listen to us, represent us, and indeed are one of us; however, bureaucrats and corporate officials who live miles away have no concept of our local history, values, and traditions. Call your representatives and tell them you want fair taxation, and you want to retain local control over your community’s affairs. The focus of state government should be on job creation, innovation and economic prosperity, not taxing our seniors and taking over control of our local communities. Michael Trebesh, CPA St. Johns

Letters to the editor Our debt stands at over $14.2 trillion or $45,800 for each U.S. citizen. Our young men are fighting three wars with one hand tied behind their backs because they cannot use all means available to win. Our border guards are being killed; yet get no support in their efforts to keep illegals out. Line-of-duty police fatalities rose 37 percent in 2010. Troopers are being asked to do more with less backup and inferior equipment. Yet our federal bureaucracy continues to grow. Gas is approaching $4 a gallon, yet we cannot drill on U.S. soil. Does this make sense to you? I am tired of hearing that we have to give up our rights, must lower our standard of living to fight global warming, and should pay higher taxes to support those who choose not to work. That’s why I have been a Tea Party member. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, in an interview on “Meet the Press” in January said, “The Tea Party will disappear as soon as the economy gets better.” Again on March 17, in an interview with MSNBC’s self-proclaimed socialist, Lawrence O-Donnell, Senator Reid made a bold prediction that the Tea Party movement won’t survive. I want to tell Senator Reid that he is wrong. As the size, scope and over-reaching

power of the federal government increases, so do the size and determination of the Tea Party movement. If you believe in fiscal responsibility, free markets and a constitutionally limited government, maybe you should join a Tea Party. Mt. Pleasant has one that is in its infancy. Please come and see what the Mid-Michigan Patriots are all about. It costs nothing to join. The next meeting will be held at the I-Hop restaurant, 5245 East Pickard Street in Mt. Pleasant on Thursday, March 31 at 6:30 p.m. Come and see what you think. It will cost nothing but your time. Connie Lapham Perrinton

Economic alliance announces 2011 youth business winners DEWITT – The Clinton County Economic Alliance has announced the winners of its 2011 Clinton County Business Venture Competition according to Brian Coughlin, CCEA president and CEO. The overall winner and recipient of a $1,000 Lansing Community College scholarship is DeWitt High School senior Brantley Barnes for his business plan and presentation for his proposed business venture called Book Nook. Brantley also won $250 for finishing first in the High School Service Business Category. Finishing in second place in the High School Service Business Category and the winner of a $150 award was Aaron Jegla a junior at Pewamo-Westphalia High School for his proposed business, For Love of Dance. The $100 third prize went to Courtney Lynch also a DeWitt High School senior for her entry, Dogercize. For the High School Product Category, the $250 first place award went to Ben

Scheffler, a St. Johns High School sophomore, for his product presentation and business plan for Methanogen Engines. And, the $100 first prize for the Middle School New or Existing Product or Business Category was won by eighth grader Tyler Ott of Ovid-Elsie Middle School for his presentation and business plan for a vehicle safety alarm. Ott also won the Middle School award last year. “Anyone who thinks the U.S. is falling behind is not reading the same articles and journals that I am,” said Coughlin. “This country is by far still the world leader in innovation. It is our hope that the Clinton County Business Venture Competition in a small way will help promote new ideas and new businesses in our commu-

nities, possibly from some of these very young women and men who took part in this competition.” Twenty-one Clinton County students competed in this year’s competition, up from 11 last year said Coughlin. As part of the competition, each student was required to submit an entry which had to include an executive summary, company description, proposed business plan, a marketing plan and analysis, as well as operational, organizational, and financial analyses. Students were then required to make a 15-minute presentation to three judges over a two day period. This year’s judges included Tom Donaldson of the Michigan Small Business and Technology Development Center, Amanda Avila of Prima Civi-

New health insurance offered for patients previously denied out-of-pocket costs for the patient. The program will not deny any applicant coverage or benefits simply because of health status. Most Michigan medical providers and pharmacies participate in HIP Michigan; however, Michigan residents may check online at HIPMichigan.com/Provider to confirm that their providers are in the HIP network. They may also call HIP Michigan Customer Service at 877-459-3113. HIP is being recommended by the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA), Michigan Association of Health Plans (MAHP), the Michigan Organization for Nurse Executives (MONE) and the State of Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation (OFIR). It is administered by Physicians Health Plan of Mid-Michigan (PHPMM), which is an affiliate of Sparrow Health System and is a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, effective March 23, 2010. – From Carson City Hospital

Clinton County News

CARSON CITY — Carson City Hospital will be participating in the new Health Insurance Program for Michigan, a program to insure individuals who have previously been denied coverage due to a pre-existing medical condition. The program is federally sponsored and offers affordable, high-quality health coverage to Michigan residents who have been uninsured for at least six months and have an eligible condition. “Michigan has an estimated 1.2 million uninsured individuals, so the potential for this program to make an impact on our patients is considerable,” said Carson City Hospital President and CEO Bruce L. Traverse, FACHE. Like private insurance plans, the program covers physician services, office visits for injury or illness, maternity care, preventative services, inpatient hospital services, emergency care, outpatient hospital services, behavioral health services, prescription drug services and other services with minimal

“Our goal all summer long was not just to win a district championship, but to be playing this week — this Thursday and Saturday. We put in the hard work. We deserve it. We’re ready to go.” – Tyler Walden, Pirate point guard Five players scored in double figures for Fulton, winners of 17 in a row. Guard Brandon Trefil netted a teamhigh 13 points off the bench — second only to the 21 from Manistee Catholic Central’s Nicholas Doyle. Trefil hit three of Fulton’s seven 3-pointers and dished out four of its 18 assists. Forward Cody Johnson also had 13 points for the Pirates while missing just one of seven field-goal attempts. Walden, named to the Associated Press Class D All-state team announced March 21, added 12 points and a gamehigh five assists. Reserve forward Garrett Slavik chipped in 11 points for the Pirates on 5 of 6 shooting from the field, while starting forward Corey Hungerford recorded a double-double that featured 10 points and a game-high 12 rebounds. The team effort, while not perfect, did not surprise Fulton coach Todd Walden. “Maybe it’s the coach in me, but I still think there’s some room for improvement with us,” he said. “But if we continue to do what we do, we will be tough for anybody to beat. “I feel pretty confident with the kids we have inside to score in a one-on-one situation. I really like our chances with the guys we have on the perimeter shooting the ball, too. “I wouldn’t want to defend us.”

After we got out early we knew we couldn’t let up, we had to keep going.” Walden, who led the team with 20 points, scored 11 points in the first quarter, including hitting three of his four three pointers. “It was a great feeling,” Walden said. “I’ve hit some shots before, but not on this big of a stage. We got the ball in the post and they doubled down, so they unselfishly kicked it out and I knocked down my shots.” Fulton, after building a 19-10 firstquarter lead, closed out the first half with a flurry, scoring eight unanswered points in the final two minutes. Corey Hungerford and Walden each hit three pointers to close out the second quarter. Hungerford scored 18 points, pulled down seven rebounds and had two assists.

“We had the green light (to shoot threes), and they left us open on the perimeter at the start of the game and we executed our offense,” Walden said. “We have three or four kids who can knock those down,” Fulton coach Todd Walden said. “We don’t care where we score from.” Fulton had three starters pick up a second foul early in the second quarter, but Todd Walden left them in. “These kids are smart kids, they’ve been in that situation before,” he said. “They kept looking at me and saying ‘I’m OK with two, I’ll be smart’ and they did. I’ve got all kinds of confidence in them.” Fulton continued to pull away in the second half, leading by 15 or more throughout most of the second half. “We were broke, we couldn’t make a shot,” Muskegon Catholic coach Dave Ingles said. “We’ve had games like that before, and we’ve been able to recover, but against a good team we had to shoot well and defend well, and we were shaky on defense and we didn’t make anything.”

HOLLAND — All-State guard Tyler Walden and his basketball band of Fulton Pirates are charging to the Breslin Center. Walden and his teammates realized a dream one year and seven days in the making on Tuesday when they routed Manistee Catholic Central 74-48 in the Class D state quarterfinal at Hope College. Third-ranked Fulton clinched its first state semifinal appearance in 34 years. The Pirates (24-2)played Detroit Westside Christian (20-5) March 24 for a spot in the state championship game. Results of that game were not available at press time “It feels great,” Walden said of getting to this point of the state tournament, a goal established when Fulton lost in the regional semifinals last season. “Our goal all summer long was not just to win a district championship, but to be playing this week — this Thursday and Saturday. We put in the hard work. We deserve it. We’re ready to go. “It’s going to be amazing. I’ve never played at the Breslin. I heard it’s pretty sweet.” Westside Christian advanced by edging Saginaw Michigan Lutheran Seminary 60-58 on Tuesday. Fulton won its first state quarterfinal since 1999 on the back of two dominant stretches. The Pirates blitzed Manistee Catholic Central (18-7) in front of a DeVos Fieldhouse crowd of 965 with an 11-2 spurt over the final 3 minutes, 21 seconds of the first quarter. Fulton took an 18-12 lead thanks to points from five different players, including a Walden 3-pointer — his first basket of the game. The Pirates extended their lead to 38-26 by halftime, then finished off the Sabers by ripping off a 17-1 run through the opening seven minutes of the third quarter. Fulton’s depth was too much, Manistee Catholic Central coach Dale Edmondson Jr. said. “This is the first team we played this year that had a solid seven,” Edmondson said. “Our defense has been our staple for the last month, at least. Tonight we couldn’t sag off on anybody to get an advantage. “This is the most talented team we’ve seen.”

Clinton County schedules medication disposal events ST. JOHNS – Clinton County announces a series of dates for residents to dispose of their expired or unwanted medications. Collection programs will be held throughout the year with the help of local partners and law enforcement agencies. The services were initiated in the last two years,and demand for the programs has grown. Medication collection events allow residents to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. “These services are important to increase awareness and prevention of prescription drug abuse,” said Sheriff Wayne Kangas. “Residents are encouraged to dispose of

medications responsibly by participating in one of the events to be held in the coming months.” “These services are also important to help safeguard both human and environmental health,” said Cara Clore, Clinton County Waste Management coordinator. Medications should never be disposed of by flushing or pouring items down the drain. Most substances are not able to be filtered by water treatment plants. As a result, they can end up in surface waters and negatively impact local ecosystems. Landfill disposal has similar challenges. The preferred disposal alternative is through special incineration technologies, which destroy chemical compounds while preventing pollution to the environment. 2011 Medication collection programs • April 16 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clean Community Event in St. Johns, location provided when appointment is made.

in men may include: • The classic male symptom - chest pain or discomfort (pressure, squeezing, aching, or fullness) that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back • Discomfort or pain in the shoulder, one or both arms, the back, neck, or jaw • Shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea, or sweating • Abdominal discomfort that may feel like indigestion “It’s important to realize that we are not powerless when it comes to preventing a heart attack,” said Dr. Robert Graham, Medical Director for the Mid-Michigan District Health Department. “We can help prevent, delay or minimize the effects of heart disease. The key is to control your risk factors.” Risk factors include: • High blood cholesterol • High blood pressure • Diabetes • Smoking • Alcohol use • Unhealthy weight • Lack of regular physical activity • Poor diet • Unmanaged stress and anger Controlling risk factors is an important step in helping to prevent a heart attack from striking, but being aware of symptoms is essential. The bottom line is, if you suspect you may be having a heart attack, seek medical care immediately. Since almost half of the people who have a heart attack die, time is of the essence.

Florence Mary Cook

Ithaca Florence Mary Cook, age 95, of Ithaca, MI died Friday, March 18th, 2011 peacefully and in the kind and compassionate care of Rosewood AFC with her family present. Funeral Services will be held at Smith Family Funeral Homes Ithaca Chapel on Tuesday, March 22nd at 11:00 a.m., Pastor Jerry Drummond will officiate. Burial will take place at North Star Cemetery North Star, Michigan. Visitation will be held on Monday 2-8 p.m. with family present from 2-4 and 68 p.m. at Smith Family Funeral Homes Ithaca Chapel, Ithaca, Michigan. Florence was born in Ashley, Michigan on June 19, 1915, the daughter Jack and Harriet (Staples) Harrod. On May 28th, 1937 she married Adrian Cook in Angola, Indiana. Mary’s long and rich life in Gratiot County had many dimensions. Education was foremost to her and originally as a graduate of County Normal she taught at several country schools, including Cook-Levering and Stoddard. While raising her family and teaching, Mary attended Michigan State and Central Michigan Universities ultimately receiving her degree and certification in Special Education. She served both Gratiot and Isabella counties as their hospitalized and homebound teacher for many years. Retirement meant spending more time at her second career, manager and owner, with her husband Adrian, of the North Star Golf Course. Mary and Adrian built the course on the old "Dibble Farm" which they bought early in their marriage, and farmed for nearly 20 years, and where they raised their children, Bob, Jim, and Carolyn. The thread running through all of Mary’s endeavors was her unlimited willingness to encourage, support and make it possible for others to fulfill their potential. Active into her nineties, she enjoyed fishing and golfing with Adrian from their Florida home and much travel after his death between Florida, Michigan, and New Mexico. She is survived by children, Bob (Penny) Cook, Jim Cook, and Carolyn (Ben) Burkland, and grandson, Tyler Cook. She was predeceased by her loving husband and partner Adrian in June 2008; her siblings, Jack (Evelyn) Harrod, Dorothy (Jake) McConkey, Kathleen ( Lloyd) Peters, and Marjorie (Ken) McNabb.

ST. JOHNS – We have all seen dramatic heart attack scenes on TV: the character clutches his or her chest in agony, and before collapsing, they are certain they are having a heart attack. While this portrayal is accurate for some, the truth is that most people, especially women, don’t have such a clear signal that something is wrong. Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States and a major cause of disability, often goes untreated because symptoms can be quite vague or mask itself as something less serious. Another barrier to awareness is that symptoms of a heart attack vary greatly in women and men, and from person to person. While differences surrounding heart attacks exist between men and women, everyone needs to recognize the signs and symptoms and act immediately by calling 9-1-1. Signs of a heart attack in women may include: • Chest pain or discomfort (pressure, squeezing, aching, or fullness) that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back • Discomfort or pain in the shoulder, one or both arms, the back, neck, or jaw • Discomfort or pain between the shoulder blades • Indigestion or gas-like pain or heartburn • Nausea, vomiting, or upset stomach • Shortness of breath • Unexplainedweaknessor fatigue unrelated to exercise • Breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, or light-headedness Signs of a heart attack

NATIONWIDE COMPANY IN LANSING THIS WEEK PAYING CASH FOR GOLD, SILVER AND COINS. By David Morgan STAFF WRITER Been following the gold and silver market lately? Well if you have a jewelry box, a lock box full of gold or a coffee can full of old coins, you should be, according to Ohio Valley Refinery spokesperson John Miller. “The gold and silver markets have not been this strong for over 30 years” said Miller. Typically when the U.S. dollar is weak and the economy is flat, gold and silver markets soar. “That’s good news if you are sitting on a few gold necklaces or an old class ring” says Miller. Starting Tuesday at 9am and every day this week through Saturday, the Ohio Valley Refinery is setting up a satellite refinery right here in Lansing at the Courtyard Lansing. During their 5 day stay, anyone can bring gold, silver or platinum items and turn them in for immediate payment, explains John Miller. “Just about everybody has some amount of gold or silver just lying around collecting dust and this week anybody can sell theirs direct to our refinery. Typically selling direct to a refinery is reserved for larger wholesale customers like jewelry stores, pawn shops and laboratories” says Miller. “We are changing how business is done,” he explains “we want to do business with everybody so we took our business to the streets”. “Our teams visit various cities around the country hosting 5 day events and allowing the general public to take advantage of our services. “The turnout has been overwhelming” says Miller. “Usually each day is busier than the previous day. It seems once people come to us and sell something, they are so amazed what an old ring or gold coin is worth, they go home and start digging around for more and telling relatives, friends and neighbors. It’s like a feeding frenzy by the third day. People line up with everything from gold jewelry to sterling silver flatware sets to old coins. I think during this bad economy everybody can use

extra money, but most people say they are taking advantage of selling direct to our refinery because of the higher prices we pay”. During this special event, anyone is welcome to bring all types of gold, silver and platinum to the refinery and turn it in for instant payment. The types of items they will accept include all gold jewelry, gold coins, gold ounces, dental gold, old coins made before 1965 including silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes, anything marked “sterling” including flatware sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver ounces and all industrial precious metals. What should you expect if you go to the event to sell your gold and/or silver? Just gather up all gold, silver and platinum in any form. If you are not sure if it’s gold or silver, bring it in and they will test it for free. When you arrive at the event you will be asked to fill out a simple registration card and will be issued a number. Seating will be available. When your number is called you will be escorted to a table where your items will be examined, tested and sorted. This only takes a few minutes, using their expertise and specialized equipment.
