Builders Club packs ‘Socks for Soldiers’

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS — ‘Socks for Soldiers’ was a successful service project for the St. Johns Builders Club last year, so the group decided to repeat their efforts in 2011. What started as a relatively small effort involving the St. Johns Middle School students grew to be a joint effort that also included the Aktion Club, Kiwanis Club and Military Moms - all of St. Johns.

Although the Builders Club spearheaded, planned and carried out most of the work involved in the project, they couldn’t have done it without the support and assistance of the other groups, according to Liz Pearson, Builders Club advisor. Though the project is dubbed ‘Socks for Soldiers’ the students were able to collect all sorts of items to send to military personSee

ST. JOHNS — The St. Johns Board of Education voted 6-0 March 28 to implement an all-day, every day kindergarten for the 2011-2012 school year. It’s an idea the board and administration has been considering for some time, according to Dr. Ken Ladouceur, superintendent at St. Johns. And it’s the right thing to do, according the board Vice President Scott Marier. Board President Bill Tennant echoed the sentiments of the others. “This is something we have wanted to do for a long time,” said Tennant, “and it’s something we need to do.” “We know these are tough economic times for schools,” said Ladouceur, “but the children of St. Johns deserve the best possible education and that starts with the best possible foundation in kindergarten.” Several years ago St. Johns piloted a program of all-day every other day kindergarten, but it lasted only one year.

Citizens Bank in Fowler robbed

By MATTHEW MILLER

FOWLER – A man wearing a red San Francisco 49ers jacket robbed the Citizens Bank branch in Fowler March 29. According to Detective Sgt. Fritz Sandberg of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, the man “came in, produced a note, asked for money, received money and left the scene.” The man did not display a weapon, Sandberg said. Police described the suspect as a white

gram proved to be complicated and didn’t have the full support of the kindergarten staff members in the district. This new program is different, and it does have the enthusiastic support of the teachers who will be implementing it. Four of the district’s kindergarten teachers were in attendance at the March 28 meeting to show support for the proposal. Adding all-day kindergarten does come with a price tag, but it is one the board feels is worth it. And there will be some savings that will offset some of the increased cost. For example, the district will be able to eliminate its mid-day kindergarten bus run. Costs aside, all-day kindergarten is the right decision for the students, says Marier. “I think it is long overdue,” said Marier. “Studies support it.” Marier added that he believes deserves a lot of credit for this decision. “Dr. Ladouceur’s vision in supporting this concept and keeping it in front of the board is very much appreciated,” said Marier.

male, between the ages of 20 and 40, approximately five-feet-six-inches tall with a heavy build and a sandy or strawberry blond beard and mustache. Police believe he may have left the scene in a dark-colored four-door mid-size car that was seen headed northbound on Main Street in Fowler. Investigators are asking anyone with information on the robbery or the suspect to contact the sheriff’s office Detective Bureau at (989) 224-5220 or the Federal Bureau of Investigation at (517) 336-8367.

Builders Club, Aktion Club and some Kiwanians collected items and monetary donations at Wal-mart March 19. Their collection that day, added to items dropped off at several businesses and St. Johns Middle School netted enough items to filled 94 boxes. With the $267 cash collected March 19 added to donations from several other sources, they also had nearly enough to pay for the shipping for those boxes - more than $1,200. March 24 Builders Club members and representatives of the other three groups gathered at the St. Johns VFW Hall to pack boxes - 94 in all. “This was an awesome project,” said Pearson. “To see the looks on the kids’ faces when people would give them items, and when they saw all those packed boxes - it was worth all the work.”

Christian Conference comes to Lansing LANSING – The 2011 Michigan Christian Convention will be held April 8-9 on the campus of Great Lakes Christian College, 6211 W. Willow Highway in Lansing, and will feature keynote speakers Jeff Walling, Dr. David Faust and Matt Proctor addressing the theme Stand Strong … Stand Long! Walling will present a message called Fearless Evangelism, focusing on how Christians can share their faith with friends. Faust’s message, titled Faith Under Fire, will discuss insights on how to discuss one’s faith when it is challenged. Proctor will share a message titled Finish-Line Faith, focusing on ways a person can live their faith with integrity and duration. Eight different workshops to choose from will be offered. There is a daylong seminar for church leaders, called Leaders Who Last. Walling is the lead minister at the mega church, Providence Road Church of Christ, in Charlotte, N.C. Faust is president of Cincinnati Christian University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Proctor is the president of Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Mo. All three keynote speakers are published writers of articles in Chris-

tian magazines, as well as authors of books. The Michigan Christian Convention is a collaborative event sponsored by the Christian Churches/ Churches of Christ and the a-cappella Churches of Christ in the state of Michigan. There is also a nursery and a childrens and youth program, centering on the theme Walk the Talk, which runs concurrently with the adult schedule. Dan Smith, minister of the Momentum Christian Church in Cleveland, Ohio will address the main sessions for students in 6th-12th grades. Smith is known for his comedic music videos (Baby Got Book) and for his witty sense of style that connects with both young and old as he shares the teachings of Jesus in a refreshing, downto-earth manner. Excellent and caring teachers will work with children as they study through the parables of Jesus in their sessions. For more details about the leadership seminar, the convention, schedule, and how to register, go to www.michiganchristian convention.org. A registration form along with cost details can be downloaded. Or call Tyler Barlage, president of the 2011 Michigan Christian Convention planning committee, at (989) 224-6421.

EAST LANSING - Fulton made a 20-2 run in the fourth quarter of the state semifinal to knock off Detroit Westside Christian 59-55 and advance to the Pirates’ first ever boys state final. But two days later, the Pirates came up short to Wyoming Tri-unity Christian, losing 67-50 in the Class D final March 26. “I hope it’s a memorable experience for them that they’ll look back on, after they get over the initial disappointment, for the next 30 or 40 years with an awful lot of pride,” Fulton Coach Todd Walden said. In the March 24 semifinal, Fulton trailed by 14 points with time starting to run out on the Pirates’ season. After a time out, Fulton’s Tyler Walden hit a jumper that jump started the Pirates’ 20-2 run. Cody Johnson followed with a layup, and Walden hit a pair of free throws to cut the Warrior lead to nine. Zach Baker and Brandon Trefil each hit jumpers to pull the Pirates to within five. A three-pointer by Walden and a pair of free throws by Johnson tied the game at 53. Eric Litwiller hit two free throws to give the Pirates a two-point lead, their first lead since midway through the second quarter.

“I remember sitting there in a timeout with about four minutes left, and we walked out of it and looked at each other and said, ‘We’re not going to lose. Just don’t let ourselves’,” Pirate junior Corey Hungerford said. “We started that run, and I got up to the (free-throw) line and we’re up by two, and I’m like, ‘Now they can’t win, because we’re not going to let them score.’ And it’s the greatest feeling in the world that you’ve got four other guys on the court with you that will deny them every chance they have.” The Warriors’ Stanley Ibe scored with 13 seconds left, cutting the Pirate lead to two points. It was the first points for the Warriors in more than six minutes. Walden sealed the win for Fulton at the free-throw like, sinking two with eight seconds left. Walden finished with 19 points. Hungerford had 14 points and Johnson scored 12.

State final

The first five minutes of the Class D state final were everything Fulton could’ve dreamed for its first championship appearance - a 10-point lead, just one missed shot, and every bounce going the Pirates’ way in front of a packed lower bowl at the Breslin Center.

It’s a dream they’ll hope to finish in 2012 after watching this one fade in an eventual 67-50 loss to No. 2 Wyoming Tri-unity Christian. Fulton’s initial lead was gone for good midway through the third quarter. And despite getting within two points of the lead four times the rest of the way, the third-ranked Pirates never could get enough bounces to fall their way again. Tri-unity Christian won its fourth state title by dominating on the boards and holding Fulton to just 28 percent shooting over the final three quarters - and just one basket, at the buzzer, during the final six minutes of the game. “It felt like every time we hit a big shot, even in the first half, we’d close out, get a hand up and they’d miss a shot, but somebody was always there to get a rebound and lay it back in. That killed us,” Tyler Walden said. “We couldn’t get over the hump. They got big rebounds when they needed to, when we started to make a run. Just killed us.” Walden hit his 83rd three pointer of the season to bring the Pirates within 44-42 with 6:23 to play. Three times Fulton got the ball back with a chance to tie. But as fun as the first

Fulton fans came out to support the Pirates in the Class D state semifinal against Westside Christian. five minutes will be to remember, the last six also will be tough to forget. The Pirates made six free throws but went 0 for 10 from the floor the rest of the way, before a final bucket at the buzzer. In the matchup of allstate guards, Walden finished with 20 points and Tri-unity senior Durant Vega had 21. In the battle of all-state honorable mention

forwards, Fulton junior Corey Hungerford had nine points and four assists, and Tri-unity sophomore Joey Blauwkamp had 16 points and five steals. Johnson finished with 12 points for the Pirates. Todd Walden has led the Pirates to four straight winning seasons after returning for a second stint as coach six seasons ago. He’s revamped what had been a frequent sub-.500 program,

with last season’s league title Fulton’s first since 1978. The Pirates are 46-5 combined over the last two winters and should return their top three scorers among 10 players total next season. “We’ll just work as hard as we can, just to try to get back,” Hungerford said. “I know, speaking for Cody and Tyler, that we want to try to get back and win one. And we’ll work as hard as we can to try to get here.”

Michigan definitely needs to continue physical education, health programs

On Feb. 16, 2011, 175 advocates for quality health education and physical education gathered at our state’s capitol to meet with legislators. Our message: support funding for health promotion and risk prevention programs, such as the Healthy Michigan Fund, and strengthen requirements for quality health education and physical education for grades K-8. In these tough economic times, and with rising standards for academic performance, many schools have eliminated important subjects that are not required, particularly health education and physical education. However, more information comes to light almost every day that these subjects are not only important, but can help to positively affect students’ academic performance. Health education and physical education also contribute to the improvement of our state’s public health. Michigan is fortunate to have strong leadership from the Michigan Department of Community Health and the Michigan Department of Education. Through quality curricula such as EPEC (physical education) and Michigan Model for Health (health education), Michigan is positioned well to create a healthy future for our youth. As a senior nursing student at Michigan State University, I have had a lot of experience in the hospital setting caring for patients with various health concerns. The majority of these patients have had conditions directly related to unhealthy behaviors they adopted early on in their lives. Clearly, health and physical education must be instilled in children right from the beginning of their young lives in order to prevent future costly health concerns. The investment in this education now will prevent disease in children down the road. It is simply a matter of instilling positive habits in Michigan’s children. The CDC has found substantial evidence that physical activity can help improve academic achievement. In addition, experts are pointing to physical education and health education as key public health tools in the fight against childhood obesity. Support for funding for health promotion and risk prevention programs and school-based physical education and health education is a “no-brainer” investment in the physical, academic and fiscal health of our state. Jenna Brown Student nurse, Michigan State University

ST. JOHNS – The 2011 Clinton Family Fit Fest has been recognized as a quality physical activity event by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. Sparrow Clinton has rallied dozens of community organizations and businesses to create the Clinton Family Fit Fest. This free, fun-filled expo – held Friday, May 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Clinton County Fairgrounds – benefits preschool and elementary-age children, their siblings and parents. Clinton Family Fit Fest offers families practical take-home solutions for better nutrition and increased physical activity. Attendees learn about nutrition through fun, handson preparation of healthy foods designed to encourage better meal and snack choices. They also explore new games and physical activities that can be incorporated

into their daily routines as well as learn more about current activities and programs in area communities. In addition, a series of 15-minute classes allow kids to try a variety of new challenges, such as hip hop dance, karate, jump rope and gymnastics. The Governor’s Council endorses local, regional and state events to acknowledge an organization’s ability to plan and carry out a quality event that significantly contributes to the health and well-being of Michigan residents. Because the Clinton Family Fit Fest exemplifies this core value, it has been reviewed for physical content and endorsed by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports. This does not reflect endorsement of the sponsoring organization or products used at the event. For more information about the Clinton Family
