Area teachers, school board, administrators, protest cuts

ST. JOHNS – Save our schools! and Kids first! Those were the chants from more than 300 people who rallied outside the St. Johns Conference and Banquet Center where Gov. Rick Snyder was the keynote speaker at the annual Clinton County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day dinner. The rally was organized by St. Johns Board of Education President Bill Tennant. “We want the governor to know that a lot of people here in Clinton County are unhappy with his proposed budget and its unfairness to education,” said Tennant. “Children are being used as political pawns in a dangerous game that is being played out at their expense. The cuts that the governor is proposing will devastate our school district and districts around the state.” The rally March 31 drew teachers, administrators, parents, retirees and other community members. The

ST. JOHNS – Serious crime and roadway accidents were at historic lows, according to the annual report on the fire and police departments presented by Michael Madden, St. Johns Director of Public Safety. More serious type crimes were at an all-time low in St. Johns in 2010, according to Madden. Less serious crime was up slightly from 261 to 279. The increase was seen in simple assaults (up from 22 to 35); bad checks /fraud (up from 30 to 39); malicious destruction of property (up from 46 to 55) and family /child offenses (up from 27 to 38). The vast majority of family /child offenses were domestic violence cases, according to Madden. There were decreases in several types of property crimes as well. Non-business larcenies were down (from 98 to 84). Shoplifting decreased from four reported incidents to just one. The total number of index and non-index crimes

United effort

“How often do you see school board members, administrators and teachers all join forces to send the governor a clear message,” said Dave Stukey, St. Johns High School teacher. Dr. Ken Ladouceur, superintendent of St. Johns Public Schools attended the rally, wearing a specially designed red and white

T-shirt just like many of the teachers, administrators and school board members in attendance. “It’s exciting to see the convictions of the people of Clinton County and their commitment to their kids,” said Dr. Ken Ladouceur, St. Johns superintendent. “This budget proposal, as it stands, will destroy public education in Michigan.” “I’m a teacher and a

parent,” said Jeff Rowland, Owosso teacher. “I care about the children and I want to see them educated. We are facing the largest cut in school funding in Michigan history.” Gary Carpenter, a retiree and director of the Clinton County Senior Center is concerned about what will happen if the budget passSee

combined was nearly the same in 2010 (322) as in 2009 (321). However, Madden reported that arrests were up from 201 to 230 in 2010. Arrests for all listed offenses increased, when compared to 2009 numbers. The total number of roadway accidents (102) in St. Johns in 2010 was the lowest number in at least 20 years. “It was the lowest total we could find on the records,” Madden said. “Twelve of the 14 personal injury accidents were on either 21 or 27.” The number of traffic citations issued by the St. Johns Police Department in 2010 was down significantly from 2009, Madden reported, down from 949 to just 712. “Like everything else, times are tough and officers are considering that,” he said. “If a verbal warning will take care of the situation, they give a verbal warning instead of a citation.” Madden presented figures supporting his stateSee Report/page 6

es and schools can’t balance their budgets. “Financial managers would put too much power in one person’s hands,” he said. “It will take away our local autonomy.” The immediate message of the rally was that St. Johns Public Schools will be severely impacted if Gov. Snyder’s proposal to reduce the foundation grant by $470 per pupil passes.

Massive cuts

St. Johns has already cut $3,149,956 from its budget since 2001. The proposed cut would mean cutting another $2.5 million from the 2011-12 budget, according to Ladouceur. Last year the district eliminated four administrative positions. “This year in order to meet the budget cuts proposed by the governor, we will have to cut 22 teachers, move the assistant superin-

tendent to the middle school principal’s position and reduce the director of special education to a minimum,” said Tennant. But cutting 22 teachers would only save the district about $550K once unemployment costs are figured in. So in order to achieve a cost savings of $1 million in teacher salary savings, the district would have to cut as many as 35 teachers, according to Bob Sackrider, president of the St. Johns Education Association. Voters in the St. Johns district last year approved funding for major renovations to the high school as well as for the purchase of new buses. With the mandated budget cuts, those buses may be parked, because there will be no money to operate them, according to Tennant. Ladouceur, Sackrider and Tennant all agree that St. Johns has done a lot to reduce expenses.

Bob Sackrider, president of the St. Johns Education Association, and Rick Drabek, member of the St. Johns Board of Education, worked side by side to get their message out to the governor. The district has partnered with other surrounding districts to save on transportation costs as well as

The only things left to cut are people and programs. “We need people to contact the Gov. Rick Snyder, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Senator Judy Emmons and Rep.

Paul Opsommer and let them know that taking money from K-12 education and giving it to community colleges and universities is not an option,” said Tennant.

Report: Departments working efficiently Continued from page 1

ments that St. Johns Police Department continues to provide excellent service and protection to the residents of St. Johns at a lower cost to those residents than comparable departments around the state.

Efficient department

The department serves the people of St. Johns with 10 officers, including Madden, which equates to one officer for every 730 residents. In contrast, Petoskey has an officer for every 300 residents, Grand Ledge has one for every 510 residents. Madden then presented figures on the percentage of the city budget spent on police and fire combined — 32 percent. Albion spends 57 percent of its budget on police and fire; East Grand Rapids spends 40 percent and Grand Ledge spends more than 50 percent of its city budget on

police and fire protection. And finally, Madden compared the cost per citizen. St. Johns spends $179 per resident on police and fire. Petoskey spends $460 per resident; Albion spends more than $250 per resident and Grand Ledge spends about $200 per resident. Madden reported the police in St. Johns met three of their goals for 2010, partially met one goal and continue working on a third. One of the goals for 2011 is to return officers to the high school and middle schools to provide mentoring, educational programming and problem solving. This goal is already partially met with officers returning to the school on a part-time basis the week of March 21.

Fire department

Madden told the commissioners the total number of fire runs during the year was down from 37 in 2009 to 35 in 2010, but the monetary

loss was up sharply. “The dollar increases were primarily due to losses that resulted from a couple house fires and a fire at an apartment building,” said Madden, “and the loss of a barn in a rural fire.” The total monetary loss due to fire in 2010 was put at $237,900, according to Madden. St. Johns Fire Department also saw a sharp increase in the number of calls to assist with ambulance runs, Madden told the commissioners. That number was up from six assists in 2009 to 22 in 2010. Madden said he believes it is due primarily to the new management at Clinton Area Ambulance Service Authority making significant changes in staffing. The changes have resulted in far less overtime for the ambulance service, and decrease unnecessary overstaffing. It results in occasional need for assistance from the fire department, ac-

cording to Madden. St. Johns Fire Chief Charles Hyler reported the department had achieved or exceeded six out of seven of its goals for 2010. The only goal not yet met is the goal to do a complete update of the department policies and procedures and its Standard Operating Procedures. “We’ve come a long way on it,” said Hyler. “There is a lot of work there, but we’ve made a lot of progress.” One goal was exceeded — the goal to purchase five new sets of turn-out gear for the department. A grant the department received enabled it to purchase new turn-out gear for the entire department, 20 sets, according to Hyler. “I’d like to commend you and all of the department,” said St. Johns Mayor Dana Beaman following the presentations by Hyler and Madden. “Having committed, qualified people like you makes us proud to live here in St. Johns.”

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

Students may obtain information and application details beginning April 11 at the high school counseling office or on line at www.stjohns.edzone.net According to Kiwanian Laura Mullaney, scholarship chair, applicants will be asked to complete a short essay on how community service has been an inspiring endeavor and how that experience will be used in the future. Applications must be completed and returned by May 6, 2011. The awarding process involves a select committee of St. Johns Kiwanis members which reviews all ap-

plications. Recipients are determined through the review procedure and the names of those selected will be announced in late May and notified by school officials. Dr. Openlander was a long-time educator and founder of the St. Johns Kiwanis club. His interest in students who overcame academic challenges was inspirational to the origin of the scholarship. The merit of that attention provided stimulus for the St. Johns Kiwanis Club to honor his memory with this unique form of student recognition.

Great Start Parent Coalition - Why get involved? Would you like to serve as a voice for parents? Would you like to strengthen your family, learn more about early childhood, brain development, education and advocacy? Would you like to connect to a great group of parents, grandparents and caregivers to share ideas, network and make decisions? We need your voice! Join Clinton County’s Great Start Parent Coalition which is one of 70 parent coalitions statewide. Become one of the 9,000 members of parent coalitions across our great state. Here are some GREAT reasons these parents joined. Jill Welton, a St. Johns mother of two, joined because she wanted to be involved in something that would benefit every child in her community. “It is so important for every member of our great state to know the importance of early childhood education and all of the pro-

Great Start Karen Black & Maria Cook

grams available to ensure that our children will have the GREAT START that they need to succeed in life. We need to help each other learn about the programs and resources that are available to every member of our community. We also need to make our legislators aware of how important early childhood education funding is. Research has proven that children with a solid start to their education will grow up to be more productive citizens, ensuring a more stable economy for our state in the future. Investing in our children now is an investment that will pay off forever.” Both of Welton’s children have benefited from early childhood programs available in Clinton County.

Lisa Huckleberry, a mother of a DeWitt kindergartener, joined as a newcomer to the community. “I just recently moved to Clinton County and decided to join the Great Start Parent Coalition. I thought it would be a wonderful way to meet new people, get involved in my community, and strengthen my family all while learning more about early childhood.” Beth Smith, a St. Johns mother of three, describes why she joined the coalition. “My family became involved in the Early On program as my son was turning three. As a former kinder-

garten teacher, I recognized some delays in his speech that were a concern to me. He was evaluated through a home visit, which was a wonderful way to reach him. Presenting activities in his comfort zone made it much easier for the evaluator to gather the data she needed. Our son went on to participate in playgroups at CCRESA, and he also attended the Early Childhood Special Education Preschool Program and Imagination Station Great Start Readiness Preschool Program. His speech issues were resolved to the degree that he no longer required special intervention upon entering kindergarten. His older sister participated in the Great Start Readiness Preschool Program at Kids Zone as well. Her experience was challenging, comfortable and prepared her well for kindergarten. As I became so familiar with these programs, I found the Great Start group. I felt that

this might be a way to give back, and to help make other area families aware of the vast, wonderful resources available. There are always resources and people to help ... we just need to know where to turn to find them. Great Start is a way to connect parents, children, and these resources!” Resources are so important for parents to be aware of. The annual Kids Count report by the Michigan League for Human Services reported that in 2008 Clinton County had 5,030 children birth to 5 years of age. The number of Clinton County children birth to 5 living in poverty is 587. Based on 2000 Census data, Clinton County has 1929 children ages 3 and 4 and only 753 (39 percent) are enrolled in a preschool program. Research shows that both children living in poverty and lack of school experience greatly impacts the school readiness of children entering kindergarten.

It is imperative that families be aware of the resources available and are able to access the services, that is what Great Start Clinton County is working towards. Join us for the next Great Start Parent Coalition meeting on April 19 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Clinton County Educational Center, 4179 S. US 27. Our group recognizes the ongoing vital job of parenting and thus provides dinner and childcare for our meetings. Please RSVP to Maria Cook, Parent Liaison, at mcook@ccresa.org or at (989)224-6831 ext. 428 for more information and/or to RSVP. Visit us at clintongreatstart.org and click on Parent Coalition. Remember, joining is a GREAT way to give back to your community while supporting your own family! Karen Black is the Great Start coordinator. Maria Cook is the Great Start parent coalition liaison for Clinton County RESA.

High Satisfaction Rate With Hearing Instruments

According to a recent survey by the Better Hearing Institute, more than nine out of ten (93 percent) consumers said that hearing instruments improved the quality of their lives. Eighty-five percent of the respondents to the survey indicated that they were satisfied with the benefits they derived from using a hearing instrument. Nine out of ten survey respondents said they enjoyed improved communication in one-on-one situations with the help of a hearing instrument. More than eight out of ten were satisfied with their instruments’ performance in small groups and while watching

television. Seventy-five percent were satisfied with their instruments outdoors, while listening to music, during leisure activities, in the home, at restaurants and religious settings.

P.S. Nearly half of the respondents to the survey mentioned above used digital instruments as opposed to analog ones.

St. Johns students learn about good nutrition ST. JOHNS – Tuesday, March 29 and Friday, April 1 Karla Palmer, school nurse and Denise Knight, food service director teamed up to present “Choosing Fruits and Vegetables in the Color of the Rainbow” to the Gateway North and Oakview South Elementary students. The food service staff set up a fruit and veggie bar with lots of colors from the rainbow and a variety of choices that anyone would marvel at. Why a fruit and veggie bar? It’s a great way to increase fruit and vegetable

consumption and a fabulous way to get more nutrients and fiber. Students taste tested a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables from kiwi to pineapple and carrots to broccoli. Students made healthy choices and had wonderful comments about their new sampling. The food service staffs of Angie Stolz and Kim McCune were key organizers of the fruit and veggie bar and will continue to support the new addition to the lunch program. Palmer provided a handson activity called “Eat a

Rainbow on Your Plate.” Students were able to tell their peers what their favorite fruit and vegetable is and then they turned themselves into a color of the rainbow. The day was all about natural fresh fruits and vegetables and adding color and nutrition with every plateful of food the students eat. Veggies take salad to the next level. Tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, carrots, and onions add flavor to the base greens. Fruits add sweetness, texture and familiarity that might just win over the non-saladeater in a child. So when the

kids come home and ask for fruits and vegetables, remember the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, then join in on all the nutrition that comes from these valuable nutrient rich foods. – From St. Johns Public Schools

ST. JOHNS – When he led his team in its first practice of the 2010-11 season, Makarauskas could tell right away he had a talented group to work with. But it wasn’t until he met with some of the other area’s top coaches, that he realized just how good they might be. “They all told me that we had some of the best divers in the area and that Brennan (LaBar) was going to be our school’s first diving state champion,” said Makarauskas. “We knew we were going to be good, but I couldn’t determine that Brennan and the guys Makarauskas would be this good.” LaBar proved those area coaches right as he went on to be crowned the Division 2 diving state champion this winter.

St. Johns High School senior Nick Grider is the Lansing State Journal’s Swimming and Diving Athlete of the Year. the best swimming coaches in the MidMichigan area in preparation for his senior season. “By doing that, you just get a different set of eyes and other people giving me input on what to work on in order to be better,” Grider said. “I remember always hearing about people who swam all year long, and those were the people who had top-10 finishes at states.” After a year of swimming and training with Spartan Swim Club, Grider entered his senior season in the best swimming shape of his life. “It was obvious from day one that he got quite a bit better in all of his events,” Brewbaker said. “He made the transformation from being mainly a fast swimmer, to being a complete multidimensional swimmer.” Grider and the Redwings started the season with a second-place showing at the Waverly Relays, but then went on to win every dual meet they swam in during the regular season. That included a convincing win over CAAC Blue

powerhouse Okemos, a school Grider had never beaten in his first three years swimming for St. Johns. “It was definitely a sigh of relief - a weight off our shoulders,” Grider said of the win. “It felt like all that hard work in the offseason paid off.” Perhaps even more impressive than the win over Okemos, was the fact that Grider was indeed setting statecut times in a number of events. When the Redwings closed the regular season with their sixth consecutive CAAC Red title, Grider had a total of six statecut times, qualifying for every event except the 500 freestyle. He posted top-10 finishes in the area in all six of those strokes, and had the 11th fastest time in the 500 freestyle. Grider then went on and had a memorable performance at the Division 2 state championship meet, taking home fifth-place in the 50-yard freestyle and placing sixth in the 100 freestyle. He was also a member of the Redwings See

Brewbaker is Swim Coach of the Year By SEAN MERRIMAN | smerriman@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Brewbaker knew how good Lansing-area swimming was going to be this year, but that didn’t stop the St. Johns swim coach from setting a bold goal for his team this past season. “We wanted to have an undefeated season,” Brewbaker said. “We wanted to do it while swimming against everyone in the area.” That included swimming against CAAC Blue powerhouse schools Okemos, Holt and Grand Ledge. The Redwings put together a memorable season and accomplished their ultimate goal, finishing the year with an Brewbaker undefeated record and their sixth consecutive CAAC Red league title. “The thing that made this year so special is that every single swimmer on this team contributed to our success,” Brewbaker said. “If we didn’t have everybody on the same page, I don’t think we would have even come close to accomplishing what we did this year.” The Redwings also finished eighth at the Division 2 state See

ST. JOHNS – Dressed in his warmups, clinching his wrist that had just been removed from a hard cast less than a week ago, Nick Grider walked out of Oakland University’s Aquatic Center during the Division 2 state swimming championships, momentarily forgetting about the broken wrist that he suffered during football season. He wasn’t thinking about what type of season he could have had if he didn’t have to swim his entire junior year with that cast dragging him back. Instead, Grider had his mind already set on what was going to happen in his senior year, and how he was going to do everything in his power to close out his St. Johns swimming career on the perfect note. “I felt like I had something to prove,” Grider thought to himself. “I wanted to do something that not many people have done in the past. I wanted to qualify for the state meet in every swimming event.” In high school swimming, there are seven individual events, one diving event and three team relays. Grider planned to post state-qualifying times in seven separate events and four different strokes. “He started off his career as a sprinter, but he really wanted to end his career by being remembered as something other than just a fast swimmer,” Coach Kim Brewbaker said. “He had the talent to do so, it was just a matter of what he was going to do in order to make sure that happened.” After spending the first three years of his high school career playing football, and two running track, Grider decided to dedicate himself to swimming and join the Spartan Swim Club. While there, Grider would train with some of

200 and 400 freestyle relay teams, which took fourth and ninth place, respectively. Grider earned All-State honors for his state finals performance, and the 200-freestyle relay team in which he anchored, received All-American honors. “It was something that I was hoping for, and I don’t

think it would have been possible if I didn’t train so hard in the offseason and make such a commitment to the sport,” Grider said. “I can remember always looking at other people’s times and getting an idea of what I needed to be in that all-state group. Now that I’m there, it’s definitely something that I’ll always remember.”

swimming finals, ahead of both Okemos and Grand Ledge. “Just to work with these kids and to see them striving for one common goal, and then going out and accomplishing that goal - it was just special to see as a coach,” Brewbaker said. “It really was a joy to watch that all materialize over a full season.” Brewbaker has always been big on using motiva-

tional techniques in order to get his teams prepared for the upcoming season. One of those motivational techniques he used this year was to have each one of his swimmers fill out a list of individual, team, short-term and long-term goals. “He wants us to focus on the steps we take to accomplishing our goals,” Nick Grider said. “He’s definitely a dedicated coach that wants to get the best out of everyone of his swimmers.”

standing commitment to animal health. “Velmar (Green) has made a lasting impact on not only our organization but the entire dairy industry,” said MMPA president Ken Nobis. “I would venture to say that MMPA never has, nor ever will have one board member who will guide this cooperative through more changes, both good and bad. Velmar will tell you that when he was first elected to the board, member equity was at zero and the co-op had just gone through its toughest financial years in its history. We are in far better shape today.”

In recognition of Green’s dedicated service and insight that helped guide MMPA over the last 42 years, the MMPA Board of Directors announced the establishment of the Velmar Green Endowed Scholarship through the Michigan Dairy Memorial and Scholarship Foundation at Michigan State University. Green continues to serve as vice-chair of the Michigan Ag Commission and is actively involved in the management of Green Meadow Farms. – From Michigan Milk Producers Association

Velmar Green Completes 42 Years of Service on the MMPA Board of Directors At the recent Michigan Milk Producers Association State Annual Delegate Meeting, members and guests recognized Velmar Green, dairy farmer from Elsie for his 42 years of service on the MMPA board of directors. Green’s legacy on the board has shaped MMPA into the successful milk marketing cooperative it is today. Green’s first introduction to MMPA and milk marketing was during the “fair share” days of the 1950s. While riding with his father, Merle, he attended meetings and saw the protests and milk strikes at the Ovid plant. These memories from his childhood left a strong imprint on the importance of cooperatives and farmers working together. Green’s first leadership appointment with MMPA was to the Marketing Committee in the early 1960s. “I can remember negotiating through the night to gain three cents in the milk price!” Green said. “I have had the good fortune to serve with some great leaders in MMPA.” Green was elected to the MMPA board in 1969 and as treasurer in1976. He has hired three general managers and worked with three association presidents. In addition to MMPA, Green has held many leadership positions in the agriculture industry. His keen sense of business management and ability to hone in on the important issues shaped him into a respected leader in Michigan and around the country. His most recent leadership appointment was to the Michigan Agriculture Commission in 2009. As a member of this commission, Green is helping to shape the future of Michigan agriculture. Green Meadow Farms has been involved with countless research trials with the cattle and other management issues on the farm. Their willingness to work with researchers has provided an “on-farm laboratory” that has led to many important research findings in the dairy industry. Many of the common management tools used today were once a research trial at Green Meadow Farms. Their unselfish commitment to the research efforts in the dairy industry has been a benefit to all dairy farmers. The addition of a methane digester is one more step in the process that includes what was one of the first operational sand/manure separators in the country and other new technologies in manure management. In 2005 Green Meadow Farms opened an on-site teaching laboratory for students in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. The veterinary clinic offers hands-on training to students at the college. The addition of the veterinary clinic compliments Green’s long-
