Quest seeks health Thanksgiving

dinner offered free to public

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Quest Software, like every other business in this state and country, faces ever-rising healthcare costs. Quest owners, Terry Miller and Ron Zyzelewski, are two individuals who really care about their 140 employees and their community, according to Brad Baltimore, Quest human resources director. “They try to hire local people and even use local vendors whenever possible,” said Baltimore. Faced with increasing insurance costs, and feeling genuine concern for their employees, Miller and Zyzelewski began looking for ways to get a handle on those healthcare costs. “What they learned is that in order to get insurance rates down, you need to get employees healthier,” said Baltimore. To that end, Quest brought in Patty Siegel, a wellness coordinator with Advanced Health Sales & Consulting, LLC, to help develop a plan to improve the overall health of the Quest workforce. “Patty came up with a program with kind of a team feel,” said Baltimore. The program includes incentives, educational classes, screenings, on-site challenges and more. “People really want to get in shape, get more fit, but they need a little push,” said Siegel. The combination of peer pressure, team building and

Quest employees are taking part in challenges to improve their overall health. The Quest employees are among the 89 who joined the “pedometer challenge.” incentives has motivated many Quest employees to join the effort. A three-month “Pedometer Challenge” ended recently, according to Baltimore, with 89 employees participating. “The goal was to get people outside walking,” he said. Those 89 individuals logged 33,624 miles in three months. “That’s like walking from here to Miami and back about 10 times,” said Baltimore. And that was just one of the challenges initiated

by Siegel for Quest employees. Currently there are 101 employees participating in the “Smallest Winner” weight-loss challenge. It’s a variation on the popular “biggest loser” concept, but with a more positive focus. At last count, employees had lost 492 pounds in a little more than a month. Before the weight loss programs began, Quest provided on-site clinical screenings for all interested employees. The screenings showed that not all employees need to lose weight;

some need to maintain their current healthy weight. But 76 percent of Quest employees were termed obese, based on the screenings. Several even learned they are diabetic, something they didn’t know before the screening. Different employees, with different amounts of weight to lose, have different support options. There are 31 participating on a Weight Watchers Worksite Program, with financial assistance from Quest. Eight employees are in See

ST. JOHNS — Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. It’s a time for giving thanks, and for eating a traditional turkey dinner. While most people look forward to Thanksgiving dinner, some have little to look forward to. Three area churches and one service group are joining together to provide a totally free Thanksgiving dinner to anyone and everyone in the community who would like to join them. “This will be completely free,” said Molly Minnick, one of the dinner’s organizers. “We aren’t going to take an offering or anything.” All you have to do is call First Congregational Church by noon on Wednesday, Nov. 17 to register. Registration is necessary so the organizers know how many people to plan for. “This is for anyone who can’t prepare Thanksgiving dinner; people who can’t travel to be with their family; those who maybe have a family member away in the military; senior citizens; people who would otherwise be alone, single moms with their kids, anyone,” said Molly Minnick, one of the organizers. “We aren’t going to ask

“We aren’t going to ask people why. We just want them to come.” – Molly Minnick people why. We just want them to come.” The dinner will be served at First Congregational Church in St. Johns, but that is just one of the churches involved in the project. “First United Methodist Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, First Congregational Church and the St. Johns Kiwanis Club are all sponsors of this dinner,” said Minnick. “But they aren’t the only ones.” Sparrow Clinton Hospital is providing the turkeys. St. Johns High School students will be assisting with set up and clean up and serving. Students at the Wilson Center are making centerpieces for the tables. “We have received so many calls from people who want to help,” said Minnick. “Now we just need people to come and eat.” To register, call First Congregational Church at (989) 224-2636 by noon on Wednesday, Nov. 17.

ST. JOHNS – Candy and books are long-established items for gift giving and with the nearing holiday season, each is taking a prominent spot on the agenda of the Gallery of Clinton County Arts Council. For almost a year now, locally produced Michigan Mints have been featured items at the Gallery, offering a full inventory of milk, dark and white chocolates. Council Director, Mike Muehlenbeck announced the introduction of the mints to the Gallery earlier this year and response has reflected a continuing growth. “Many of our gift-seeking customers were delighted to learn we carry a fresh inventory of Michigan Mints,” said Muehlenbeck, ”so now we’re accepting special orders for the holidays.”

Muehlenbeck referred to 6.2 oz. packages of mints for $7 each including selections of milk, dark and white (cherry, too) chocolate. Other selections consist of 7.2 oz. mixed chocolate mints for $8 or 2.3 oz. mixed chocolate mints or mixed cherry mints for $3.50. Various sizes of boxed mints, 3.8 oz. to 19 oz. are priced from $6.50 to $20. Orders for mints, with assured holiday delivery, will be accepted from now through Nov. 19 and may be placed by visiting or calling the Gallery, (989) 224-2429. Meanwhile, another holiday feature will be an exclusive book signing by Janet Sinke, Saturday Dec. ll. As many local residents are aware, Sinke has gained national recognition for her exceptional series of chil-

dren’s books centered on family activities and special occasions. Her award-winning publications have earned her extraordinary recognition in the field, and she maintains a busy schedule of appearances and book signings. “We are most pleased that Janet is able to include a visit to the Gallery on her demanding schedule. I’m certain her presence will result in a very busy day,” said Muehlenbeck. Sinke will be at the Gallery from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will sign both current sales and previously purchased titles. Persons interested in additional information on either of the scheduled Gallery events may call the Clinton County Arts Council Gallery, (989) 224-2429.

Quest: Meeting

Vision team working to support clergy

the challenge of improving health Continued from page 1

the Victory Institute for Wellness Program – a program for those who need to lose 75 pounds or more. It includes support and focus on behavior, nutrition, diet and exercise. In this program, a doctor meets with the individual weekly. Labs are done weekly and a personal trainer develops an exercise program for each individual – right at Quest. Quest is invested in this wellness program, even though it will take some time before they realize a return on their investment. “There programs are like added benefits for the employees,” said Baltimore, “but for Quest, the benefits are harder to measure.” “It takes 12 to 18 months before people stop using medications so much, for example,” said Siegel. Quest was getting quotes from Blue Cross/Blue Shield for 2011 insurance premi-

The Christian Community Vision Team is a group organized to support the clergy in mid Michigan. The group’s vision is as follows: Clergy have the relationships with each other and their flocks that Christ intended. Clergy lead churches that work together, regardless of theology, as a seamless part of a thriving community of people living according to scripture. Families value having a church family and have stable and strong relationships. The vision team is looking for ways to support the area clergy and create

a thriving, generous community built on relationships. The team is planning Sabbath Retreat 2011, a lay ministry for clergy. There will be an orientation on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Ovid Township Hall on M-21 in Ovid. Family members and parishioners are encouraged to show their support by attending the orientation. Six Saturday sessions are being planned. They will be held Jan. 15, 22, Feb. 5, 12, 26 and March 5 from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All sessions will be held at

the Ovid Township Hall. As part of the support for area clergy, the vision team is planning organized continuous prayers for the clergy while they are in the Saturday sessions. The program qualifies for continuing education credits. It will be facilitated by Bill Luxmore, a certified Dale Carnegie Training instructor. For more information, contact Charlie Green at chasdgreen@gmail.com or (989) 413-0638 or (989) 862-5507 home. – From Charlie Green

Hearing & Balance Education

Findings of Note Recent research shows that the extra concentration required of hearing-impaired school children detracts from their note taking ability. Even children suffering from mild to moderate hearing loss must concentrate so hard in school that their note taking suffers. This problem only increases in the noisy environments so common in classrooms. Generally speaking, classrooms are notorious for often being noisy and for lacking proper acoustics, both of which contribute to difficulty in hearing for all children and teachers. The study compared the levels of concentration displayed by children with mild to moderate

hearing loss with children with normal hearing. It was found that the hearing-impaired children reacted significantly slower to their teacher’s directions than the other children.

Carson City Hospital announces logo contest

CARSON CITY — Dr. Emmett Binkert, struck by the beauty of the St. Mary Church steeple, chose Carson City to practice medicine. In 1936, he started Carson City Hospital in what was then his home. In 2011, Carson City Hospital will be celebrating 75 years of serving the health-care needs of the community. As part of the celebration and to encourage participation from local students, the hospital is sponsoring a 75th Anniversary Logo Design Contest, open too K-12 students in the hospital’s service area. The deadline to submit a design is Nov. 29. “It’s so fascinating to think back on Dr. Binkert having a vision for this hospital, and to look at its humble beginnings in a small home compared to the state-of-the-art health-care facility we have today,” said Jennifer Churchill, Carson City Hospital’s public relations manager. “I think Dr. Binkert would be proud.” The logo design submissions will be displayed in a public area of the hospital, and the winning design will be seen by the

whole community in local newspapers and possibly on billboards, as well. The designer of the winning logo will receive a gift card for $100, as well as publicity in local media for their accomplishment. The theme for the 75th anniversary celebration is “Caring for Generations,” and the contest is open to any student, K-12, in a public or private school in the Carson City Hospital service area, which includes portions of Clinton, Gratiot, Ionia and Montcalm counties. The design should incorporate the text “75 years,” or “since 1936” or “1936-2011” or some variation of this text. There is no submission form to fill out, but you can contact the hospital for a copy of the logo contest rules and requirements, which is also posted on the hospital’s Facebook page. If you are not sure if you live or attend school in the hospital service area, or to submit your logo design, contact Jennifer Churchill at (989) 584-3971 ext. 237 or jachurchill@carsoncityhospital.com – From Carson City Hospital

Focus of county summit is on cooperation ST. JOHNS — Dozens of local government officials who gathered in a conference room in St. Johns to talk about cooperation agreed on one thing: There are plenty of ways they could benefit by pooling resources and working across jurisdictional boundaries. But how far it will all go remains to be seen. “This was an opportunity to bring government entities together to have open dialogue about partnering for services,” said Dennis LaForest, St. Johns city manager, “an chance to get the creative minds thinking about what we can do.” About three dozen elected officials from around the county attended the county’s first-ever regionalism summit at the Clinton County RESA Conference Center on Oct. 28. “I’d say there was a good cross-section of jurisdictions there,” said Troy Feltman, the superintendent in Bath Township. “Geographically, they represented pretty much the whole county.” The meeting was hosted by Bath and DeWitt townships and the city of St. Johns. Officials from those three communities will survey the participants to fur-

ther define what areas are ripe for collaboration. “We’ll ask some probing questions, as well,” Feltman said. “We want to make sure we understand where the true interests lie. And we’ll ask people to step to the plate and form teams to start working on these highpriority items.” LaForest pointed out that there are several good examples of cooperation in the county already. “We have the Clinton Area Ambulance Authority here in the northern part of the county,” he said. “Then there is DARA (the recreation cooperative for DeWitt City and DeWitt Township) and SCUMA (Southern Clinton County Municiple Utilities Authority).” Mark Skidmore, a professor and Morris Chair of state and local government finances and policy at Michigan State University, led the 90-minute discussion. With revenues flat or declining, more communities are cooperating and consolidating, Skidmore said. But political and practical issues can hamper that process, he said. The only successful merger of municipalities in Michigan happened in the Upper Peninsula in 1999, he said. Local government leaders should start small, be patient and think for the

long term when they talk about consolidation, he suggested. Local officials broke into groups of five or six and came up with dozens of areas where working together would help, including assessing, purchasing, planning and health and property liability insurance. Feltman said the survey should help define areas where there is interest for collaborating so communi-

Hospital Auxiliary takes part in festival ST. JOHNS – Again this year, members of Sparrow Clinton Hospital Auxiliary will participate in the St. Johns Chamber of Commerce eighth annual Christmas Festival set for Saturday Dec. 4. As in previous times, the schedule of events include not only special holiday sales, but also Breakfast with Santa, Festival of Trees, a craft show and Children’s Make It and Take It crafts. In preparation for the event, auxiliary members recently completed stocking and decorating the hospital gift shop following an annual buying trip to Chicago. Kathie Clock, fund-raising chairman for the auxiliary, explained that proceeds from all hospital gift shop sales ultimately benefit the hospital. “While our primary purpose is to assist the hospital in acquiring patient care needs, we look forward to joining the Chamber each year in this festive event,”

New buses hitting the roads

St. Johns Public Schools has taken delivery on 20 new propane fueled buses. The new buses will be on the road once they are inspected and when their communications systems are installed. The bus purchase was approved by the St. Johns Board of Education earlier this summer. Funds from the bond passed in May were used for the purchase. Holland Bus Company of Holland, Mich. supplied the buses. The buses are expected to save significantly on fuel costs throughout the year.

Sports Pirate boys seventh at state finals meet By SCOTT YOSHONIS

Eagle spikers fall to Aggies

BROOKLYN — Pewamo-Westphalia capped off the best boys cross country season in school history with a seventh-place finish at the MHSAA Division 4 state finals at Michigan International Speedway on Nov. 6. While the Pirate girls have qualified for the state finals as a team on four different occasions, this was the first time that a P-W boys team participated in the state finals since 1978. Greg Trierweiler led the way for the Pirates, posting a time of 17:21, good for 49th place overall in a field of 237. Trierweiler finished 45 places better and 50 seconds faster than he ran at last year’s state finals, for which he qualified as an individual. Blake Thelen was the second Pirate to cross the finish line, with a personal-best time of 17:28, in 60th place overall. Senior Zach Smith’s time of 17:37 in his final race was his fastest time of the year, beating his previous season best by 42 seconds. Joel Pennell posted a personal record time of 17:55 and Brad Wirth rounded out the scor-

ers with a time of 17:59, 55 seconds faster than his state final qualifying time at the regional meet on Sept. 25. Tanner Droste ran a personal best at the state finals, 18:01, as did senior Kevin Wohlfert, whose time of 18:02 beat his personal record by 43 seconds in his final race with P-W cross country. Pirate head coach Scott Werner was ecstatic with his team’s performance. “All seven boys ran extraordinary races for themselves,” Werner said. “It was a great way to end a very special season. I was especially proud of our seniors (Smith, Wirth and Wohlfert) in the way they finished off their careers on such a high note. They had no regrets in this race and left everything on the course today.” With the team bringing back three sophomores and a freshman from the seven-man roster, P-W will likely not have to wait another 32 years for a return to the state finals. “The future looks bright for the program, and I think this is something we can build on with our group of returners in future years,” Werner said. “I think this race today really opened up their eyes that they can accomplish some big things.”

Bee’s Chevrolet supports St. Johns soccer ST. JOHNS -- The St. Johns Soccer Club received a $500 donation from Jeff Feldpausch, owner of Bee’s Chevrolet as part of the dealership’s continued support of soccer programs in the area. The St. Johns Soccer Club is the third largest community soccer program in the Capitol Area Soccer League. Each year more than 180 children participate in the USSF soccer program in the St. Johns area. The USSF and AYSO programs teach skill development, team work, physical fitness and, the most important part, having fun playing soccer. St. Johns’ AYSO and USSF soccer programs exist because of the volunteerism of the St. Johns Soccer Club board, coaches and parents.

The soccer club is initiating a large fund-raising program for the purpose of replacing playing fields that will be lost because of the expansion of high school athletic fields. Fields will be needed for league games and hosting tournaments and invitationals. Bee’s Chevrolet and Jeff Feldpausch’s generosity also includes donations of soccer kits for area teams that include soccer balls, cones, ball bags and T-shirts for players, being a major sponsor of the 4-on-4 tournament that was held this year; and currently being a Chevrolet representative for providing a new Chevrolet vehicle as a raffle prize for the program. Donations for the program are always welcomed. — From St. Johns Soccer Club

Construction under way on downtown pavilion

Depot pavilion project

If you travel down by the old railroad depot, you will find some new construction on the depot grounds. Construction of a 40-foot by 70-foot multi-use pavilion began approximately a week ago. With favorable weather gracing our community, it is expected this structure will be completed within the next month. Thanks to the RESA Career Connections building trades program for supplying much of the skilled labor, and continued kudos to the St. Johns Rotary Club for their significant financial contributions to this project.

Letters to the editor Help make season brighter for seniors, shut ins

Unbelievable as it seems, the Christmas season is just around the corner. While this past year has been rough for everyone, there are still many reasons to be grateful. As volunteers for Meals on Wheels, we are appealing to the residents of St. Johns to help brighten the season for the many elderly citizens who we serve with meals every day. We have written this request in the past, and you have been very supportive. We are hoping you will be again this year. Anything you wish to donate may be dropped off at the Meals on Wheels offices in the Senior Center at 201 E. Walker St. in St. Johns. Here is a list of needed items: socks, scarves, gloves/mittens, slipper socks, 100-piece puzzles, large print crossword and find-a-word puzzle books, Kleenex, cough drops and sugar-free candy. No candles please. Thanks to all of you who can help. May all who read this be blessed in the coming year.

Horror on Elm Street

To the thief or thieves who came onto our property Oct. 26 between noon and 4 p.m. while we were gone away and helped themselves to articles that were in our yard for Halloween. These articles were a very old gurney, a very old shopping cart and a very old Amana microwave. We have lived here for over 30 years, and we have never had anyone help themselves to any of our belongings in our yard. You took a Halloween scene that our family has happily put on for the children, and the grown-ups as well, to enjoy for many, many years now. It is too bad that there are such people in this world that do such hateful and cruel things to others. Ovid is not the Ovid we knew years ago. I guess if a person would steal tomatoes out of a neighbor’s garden, then they will steal anything. It is so sad that little ole Ovid is getting as bad as other thieving towns. I guess we should padlock everything. I hope you enjoy our property, or the money you get from it at a scrap yard. You really have nerve to steal these things from our yard in broad daylight. Even though you have saddened our hearts, our Halloween tradition will still go on. A very saddened family, John and Terri Stewart, Ovid

Housing issues deserve priority during ‘lame duck’ session

ment to ride to the rescue. This is unacceptable when you consider that: • The Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit, designed to protect homeowners, has not been changed or adjusted for inflation since 1976. • Michigan law makes it difficult for those whose homes have been foreclosed on to determine how much money they need when exercising their right of first refusal. • Michigan law has remained silent on additional property transfer fees that fleece homeowners of their hard-earned equity when they sell their homes. • Michigan law has done little to address a broken property tax tribunal system that does not allow homeowners to hear their cases in a timely manner. The Michigan legislature may not be able to address all of the issues that are affecting the housing market. But pointing fingers outside makes little sense for those who refuse to take the bull by the horns in areas where they can make a difference and are instead sitting on their hands. This upcoming lame duck session should therefore still be viewed as an opportunity to get that job done. – Paul Opsommer is the Michigan State Representative from the 93rd District.

With the elections over, most political headlines are focusing on 2011 and the policy agenda of a new administration. However, the 2010 legislative session has not finished, and I have had many constituent questions regarding what a “lame duck” session means. In a nutshell, “lame duck” refers to session days that occur late in the year when some politicians have lost their elections but not their right to vote. Others may be leaving due to term limits. With more than 50 percent out of office for one reason or another, this year’s lame duck will in actuality be a very large flock. While sometimes a lame duck can be productive when there has not been a large amount of turnover, this lame duck is shaping up to be one where very little can get accomplished. With only a few session days remaining it is unlikely last minute consensus can be reached on major policy issues, especially if they are controversial. I do feel strongly, however, that we can pass needed policy in less contentious areas, such as how to help homeowners. It is still the mortgage meltdown that was a root cause for many of our current economic difficulties, and it is hard to see how we can regain a vibrant economy without also returning to a vibrant housing market. While state law will not be able to address all housing issues, too many in Lansing have been willing to wait for the federal govern-

MMDHD hires WIC peer breastfeeding counselors ST. JOHNS – Mid-Michigan District Health Department (MMDHD) has recently implemented a WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Peer Counseling program in an effort to increase the number of mothers who breastfeed throughout the district. The goal of the program is to provide education and training in breastfeeding and nutrition-based best practices, which will benefit breastfeeding mothers and their children. Under the new program, Clinton, Gratiot, and Montcalm County mothers who breastfeed will be served by four new part-time Peer Counselors. Stacy Carstensen is based in the Clinton County Branch Office, Molly Smith is based in Gratiot County Branch Office, and Jessica Gallop and Tammara VanDop are based in Montcalm County Branch Office. All women have demonstrated that

they have the skills and abilities needed to provide quality counseling throughout the community. A second goal of the program is to decrease the health risks associated with formula feeding by in- Cartensen creasing the number of women who exclusively breastfeed their infants for at least six months. This will not only improve the longterm health of both the mother and baby, but should also help lower medical costs, obesity and other chronic health issues associated with formula feeding of infants. The peer counselors will initially offer timely on-site and phone assistance information to pregnant women and

mothers enrolled in the WIC program. As training progresses, the peer counselors may make home visits or offer their assistance at other off-site locations, such as hospitals. MMDHD also hopes to form partnerships with community organizations to ensure this valuable and effective program is provided to the greatest number of women and babies in the district. MMDHD is working to make organizations aware of this upcoming service and encourages them to refer women to the WIC program and the peer counselors for assistance with breastfeeding. For more information, please contact Bonnie Havlicek, MMDHD WIC Coordinator at bhavlicek@mmdhd.org or (989) 831-3620. – From Mid-Michigan Health Department

Avoid cold weather hazards for livestock, pets LANSING – Governor Jennifer M. Granholm declared Nov. 7 as Winter Hazards Awareness Week; and as potentially severe winter weather approaches, the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) is reminding animal owners to plan for cold, dangerous conditions that may impact the health and well being of their pets and livestock. “Michigan pets and live-

stock can be negatively impacted by winter weather,” said Dr. Steve Halstead, MDA state veterinarian. “Both pets and livestock react to harsh conditions and it’s imperative that owners plan ahead and take extra steps to ensure the health and safety of their animals.” State law requires owners provide an adequate supply of feed and water for their animals, as well as shel-

ter from the wind and other severe conditions. “Generally speaking, the state of the economy is challenging owners in their ability to properly care for their animals,” said Halstead. “But there may be organizations in Michigan willing to help people keep their pets at home, instead of surrendering them during difficult economic times. So, if you need help, I encourage you con-

tact your local animal shelter or humane society.” As a reminder, dogs, cats, and other companion animals that live inside homes may not tolerate outdoor winter temperatures for very long periods. Guardian dogs and barn cats that live outside need dry, clean, enclosed spaces such as dog or cat houses that retain body heat. Other winter precautions for companion animals

include ensuring: • Access to clean water • Adequate feed • Good grooming • Protection from de-icing chemicals, which can irritate skin • Protection from antifreeze, which tastes sweet to animals, but is extremely toxic MDA’s Generally Accepted Agricultural and Management Practices (GAAMPs)

for the Care of Farm Animals have specific guidance on cold weather care for livestock species. For more information on GAAMPs, visit at http:/ /www.michigan.gov/gaamps or find us on Facebook at w w w. f a c e b o o k . c o m / MIDeptofAgriculture Follow MDA @MichDeptofAg – From Michigan Department of Agriculture

You deserve a rapid recovery from your hysterectomy. A robotic-assisted hysterectomy offers most women numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to hysterectomies, particularly with more complex procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecological cancer. Women undergoing robotic-assisted surgery typically experience: • Significantly less pain and fewer complications • Less blood loss and a decreased risk of infection • Less scarring • A shorter hospital stay (as short as a single day for total hysterectomies) and dramatically-decreased recovery time • A quicker return to normal daily activities Sparrow is mid-Michigan’s leader in robotic-assisted surgery. The experience and expertise of our highlydedicated team has made Sparrow midMichigan’s leader in robotic-assisted surgery with more intensively-trained surgeons than any other hospital in the region.
