Honor society serves seniors By SUE LOUNDS

slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – More than 80 St. Johns area senior citizens enjoyed a special holiday luncheon Dec. 15, compliments of the St. Johns High School National Honor Society. “This is our 15th annual luncheon,” said Cindy Deveau, honor society advisor. “It’s the 15th one, but it’s new to all of us,” said Andrew Flegler, National Honor Society president, explaining there are only seniors in the society at this time of year. Juniors won’t be inducted until later in the school year. “So every year it is a totally new group that does this.” They plan to continue the tradition, even though the National Honor Society is currently in debt to the tune of more than $1,000. “Last year’s group didn’t

Members of the St. Johns High School Chapter of National Honor Society planned, prepared and served a special holiday luncheon to St. Johns area senior citizens Dec. 15. do any fundraising,” said Flegler, “so it’s up to us to do some fundraising this year.” He said they don’t have anything planned right now, but there will be events coming after the holidays. “We are thinking about

hosting a trivia night,” said Flegler. “We may offer babysitting around Valentine’s Day. And we’re going to sell popcorn at the high school on National Popcorn Day.” But for now, the honor society members were determined to carry on the holiday luncheon tradition. As in the past, the luncheon was held at St. John’s Lutheran Church. It has become a tradition for many of the senior citizens as well as the honor society. Paul Bennett, for example, has never missed the event in its 15-year history. Bob and Mary Zuker said they have attended “maybe 10 or 12 years. “It’s a great experience for the younger kids to get involved with the seniors,” said Mary Zuker. “And for them to underPaul Bennett (left) hasn’t missed a single Senior stand all the problems assoCitizen Hoilday Luncheon in its 15-year history.

Lunch was followed by entertainment in the church sanctuary. Neil Hartenburg, father of one of the honor society members, played guitar and led the seniors in Christmas carols. And when they left, each of senior received a bag containing homemade cookies. “The students prepared all the food themselves,” said Deveau. They planned, prepared and served the luncheon, and of course did the clean up. It’s a great group of kids, according to Deveau. “They are a really hardworking group – probably See

CAMW: Serving employers and employees alike Continued from page 1

“These are both examples of what we can help people accomplish,” said Contompasis. “We’re overcoming barriers for both employees and employers. We have unique abilities to do that.”

MAHLE’s story

When 2010 began, there were 11 people on lay off from MAHLE. Since the beginning of the year, not only have all 11 of those individuals been called back to work, but 34 more have been hired - 29 hourly and five salaried employees - with more hiring to come. “The St. Johns plant has a proven record in terms of the people who work here, getting the work done and financial profitability,” said Rick Aubry, manager of human resources at MAHLE in St. Johns. Aubry was very quick to acknowledge CAMW St. Johns for its assistance with the hiring process. “They are pretty heavily involved,” he said of CAMW St. Johns. “They receive the applications and make sure the candidates meet preliminary requirements. Then they do some prescreening

and only send us qualified people to interview. That saves us lots of time.” “They’ve taken over 600 applications for us, and they do the prescreening,” said Mark Winsor, human resources training technician for MAHLE. After doing interviews with prospective employees, MAHLE sends selected candidates back to CAMW where for some testing. “Then those who score high enough are referred back to us,” said Aubry. And, because there are funds available for job training, MAHLE gets them back again, for training. “I’m just amazed with what the (CAMW) office does for us,” said Aubry. And the people at CAMW are good at what they are doing, according to Aubry, helping MAHLE select good candidates for the jobs available. “We have not lost one of the people we have hired this year,” he said. “Not one has quit; not one has been fired. We have to credit CAMW St. Johns office with that.” Aubry also credits CAMW St. Johns office for the award. “This award is as much

due to them as it is to us,” he said. “George (Contompasis) has got a great staff,” said Winsor. “They’ll get in contact with us and say ‘we’ve got this program available’ or that program available. They help us with OJT (on the job) training. I can’t say enough good about them.”

Marrison’s journey

Laura Marrison is another success story from the St. Johns office of CAMW. Marrison lives in Lansing, but she came to the St. Johns office when she needed assistance in making a career change. “I wanted to be a medical assistant,” said Marrison, who had been a dental assistant for more than 20 years. But after suffering from deep vein thrombosis, something wasn’t right.

“I hadn’t really felt right since suffering a brain injury in 2005,” she said, explaining that the multiple blood clots in her lungs had not allowed sufficient oxygen to get to her brain, thus causing brain trauma. Nick Chaffin, senior employment specialist at CAMW St. Johns, was Marrison’s case manager. He referred her to Krista Miller at Michigan Rehabilitation Services Office. There she learned that she did indeed have neuro deficiencies due to the lack of oxygen from the blood clots in her lungs. “They told me I had learning deficiencies and memory deficiencies,” said Marrison. Once her difficulties were diagnosed, Marrison was referred to Origami Rehabilitation in Okemos where she received cognitive therapy

and speech therapy. “Then I was ready to go to school,” she said. With help from Chaffin and CAMW St. Johns, Marrison enrolled in Career Quest, where she graduated with a 92.5 grade point average, making the Dean’s List or Director’s List each semester she was enrolled. “I’m now a registered medical assistant, working at Mid-Michigan Physicians as an assistant to Dr. Carol Lyon,” said Marrison. “I think Nick Chaffin is the best employment specialist ever,” she said. “There’s not anything I could ask for that he wouldn’t do to help me succeed.” Marrison also says she owes a great amount of gratitude to her family for all of their love and support throughout her ordeal and eventual success. Her family

includes her husband Neal, daughter Amanda, son Ales and sisters Karol, Barbara and Leanne. “Any adversity can be overcome with love and support,” said Marrison. The common thread for Marrison and MAHLE is Capital Area Michigan Works! “We are helping employees find their potential and find appropriate employment,” said Contompasis. “And we are helping employers find the right people for their jobs.

Along with dinner, each child received a Little Caesar’s coupon, and then joined in singing songs of the season before being turned loose in the store with up to $35 to spend compliments of Kiwanis Club. “Perhaps this is the most successful Christmas shop-

ping event we’ve sponsored,” said Roberta O’Connor, co-chair of the program. “For the first time in all the years Kiwanis has held this project, we numbered 25 youngsters participating. Our appreciation is extended to Pauline Baert and her staff at CCAS for assisting in the selection process. The children have an exciting time.” Following the activities, O’Connor and co-chair Mike Zigler, thanked parents of the children who participated in the shopping spree and presented each of them with a $100 Walmart gift card. — From St. Johns Kiwanis Club

Railway museum gets help from SJHS students

ST. JOHNS - Trains, whether they’re full-size or model HOs, capture the imagination of folks young and old. Railroads are part of America’s history - perhaps not as evident in today’s landscape, but never forgotten. Brett Cheeseman understands the allure of railroads, and he’d like others to experience the feeling, too. That’s why he devised a fund-raising project at St. Johns High School on behalf of Clinton Northern Railway that netted over $250 for the non-profit organization. “The idea just popped into my head,” the SJHS sophomore says about the plan to support CNR’s work at the former Grand Trunk Depot, located in downtown St. Johns. “Brett worked on the model train tracks this past summer and fall, and did a great job for us,” says Gary McCampbell, manager of the CNR along with his “railroad buff” wife, Jenny. “He was so dependable, and real-

ly made the tracks look like new again.” Making trains bright and shiny is something Cheeseman is familiar with. He has a number of steam and diesel models, including a 40-yearold steam engine, that he’s creating a layout for at his home in St. Johns. Being at the depot with other like-minded railroad enthusiasts was a new experience for the 15-year-old, and helped prompt the idea of raising funds for CNR programming. “There are lots of things we could use for the model railroad layout,” Cheeseman says, adding that as good as the fund-raising idea seemed, he wasn’t sure how to organize it. Enter Jason Gnegy, SJHS teacher and Student Council advisor. “Brett is a nice kid,” Gnegy says, citing his help with the Student Council on its own fundraisers, like the pop machine in the cafeteria. “It’s pretty common for us to take

on projects, but this was something that Brett wanted to do on his own - he just needed a little help.” When they talked about who Cheeseman might get to work with him, John Shaver’s name was at the top of the list. “I don’t know too many kids, but John and I talk every morning at school and I thought he would help me,” Cheeseman says about his fellow classmate who’s a Student Council representative. Shaver agreed without hesitation. “I wasn’t that familiar with the railroad organization, but when Brett talked about volunteering there it seemed like a good thing for us to support,” Shaver says. That sort of response is typical, Gnegy says. “John is a friend to everyone - a super student who’s always willing to lend a hand.” The duo quickly launched the fund-raising campaign. They visited every seminar class, providing information

on the CNR and work being done at the depot, and asked for donations. “It’s a busy time of year here at the high school, so we wanted Brett and John to complete the project in a short amount of time,” Gnegy says, citing the one-week format. “It’s pretty amazing that they could collect so much money so quickly - $258.75 was the total.” “I knew we could do it,” he says with a smile. “Mr. Gnegy is cool, and lots of other teachers and kids helped us, too.” The positive attitude displayed by Cheeseman and Shaver is what most impressed the McCampbells. “Brett took the initiative and really made it happen,” Jenny says. Cheeseman’s pleased, too, although he’s most interested in working on the model trains at the depot. “I like spending time with the other people there; we all like trains,” he says. Unfortunately, he’ll have

Clinton Northern Railway, a partnership endeavor of the Clinton County Arts Council, is supported in part by

the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. All donations are tax-deductible. For detailed information on CNR, visit http:// clintonnorthernrailway.org – By Rhonda Dedyne for Clinton Northern Railway

ST. JOHNS – Children fall in love with a variety of things that capture their attention - dinosaurs, horses, building blocks, video games. For Larry Houghton it was airplanes and the prospect of flying. That passion for planes is vividly captured in the debut book by the St. Johns area resident, “Flight Log.” Houghton’s colorful description of his childhood fascination with the world of aviation and the thrill of learning to fly as an adult will delight airplane enthusiasts - and non-flyers as well. Teenagers and adults who wonder what it would be like to fly a plane will find the author’s explanation of training both exciting and understandable, and pilots will enjoy re-liv-

Weather leads to crashes

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Weatherrelated traffic crashes kept Clinton County Sheriff’s deputies very busy last week. Officers responded to more than 100 traffic crashes during the week from Monday, Dec. 6 to Sunday, Dec. 12. Though the numbers are down, there were still 19 cardeer crashes reported during the week. In all, deputies made 200 traffic contacts during the week. Six traffic contacts involved driving while license suspended. One driver was stopped for operating while intoxicated and one was arrested for violation of the Controlled Substance Act. Deputies handled one assault and battery/ family dispute, three breaking and enterings, two larcenies and five fraud cases. They responded to five instances of malicious destruction of property. There were four medical examiner investigations during the week as well as five DNR/ hunting complaints. Deputies followed up on 15 investigations. Clinton County deputies answered 515 calls for assistance during the week. Following are some examples of situations requiring deputy response:

Monday, Dec. 6 Deputies conducted a traffic stop on South BR-127 and arrested the driver from St. Johns for driving on a suspended license. A fraud at Wal-Mart in Bingham Twp. was investigated by deputies. Deputies conducted a medical examiner investigation of a 76-year-old on West State Road in Eagle Twp.

The holidays are upon us! So more people are spending more hours inside, sharing seasonal viruses as well as seasonal cheer! The common cold is a virus caused by several different organisms. Antibiotics are not used to treat colds, unless you have a secondary bacterial infection. Taking an antibiotic for a cold increases your antibiotic resistance, so it is best to let a cold run its course – which can take as long as two weeks. Cold symptoms usually occur within a few days of exposure. They include cough, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, mild body aches or a slight fever. Trying to find a product to treat your symptoms can be difficult. Here are a few over-the-counter remedies for common cold symptoms in ADULT patients. Antihistamines (diphenhydramine, loratadine, cetirizine) can help relieve a runny nose, itchy eyes and a sore throat or cough caused by nasal congestion. Decongestants (phenylephrine, pseudoephedrine) can help relieve a stuffy nose. Consult your doctor first if you have high blood pressure, thyroid disease, diabetes, trouble urinating due to an enlarged prostate gland. Cough suppressants (dextromethorophan) can help relieve a non-productive, dry cough. Expectorants (guaifenesin) can help loosen the phlegm associated with a productive cough. Pain relievers (acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen) may help with a low grade fever, sore throat or generalized aches and pains. For a sore throat, lozenges and anesthetics might relieve symptoms. Please carefully read the caution labels on any over-the-counter remedy or consult your pharmacist or family doctor before using a product that might adversely interact with an existing health condition. Be very conscious of the ingredients when purchasing cough and cold products. Many combination products are available and some contain acetaminophen (Tylenol), which can cause liver damage when taking higher than recommended doses. Other helpful hints for beating a cold include: & Wash your hands frequently & /6C @<6>CG ?7 A6BC & -A:>; <?CB ?7 7<D:5B & 1B6 2 9D=:5:7:6A ?A E2@?A:H6A & ,<62A G?DA B:>DB 42E:CG F:C9 >2B2< :AA:82C:?>B & 1B6 B2<:>6 >2B2< B@A2G ?A 5A?@B C?

A soldier’s thank you

dier could feel the way I did when I came into the gym and heard the song “I’m Proud to be an American” with the overwhelming cheering and support of the students and staff and everyone else there. I could never have imagined anything like it. I wish my whole platoon back in Afghanistan could have been with me to see and share the experience. Thank you all for your overwhelming generosity, from so many of you I am not able to name, all the way down to the $35 contribution that the garage band raised. It has all helped out a lot. I don’t know how to thank you all. The letters, the signs, and the banners, all of it, I will keep and treasure. I will never forget it. May God bless, Specialist Matthew Hayes, US Army Walter Reed Army Medical Center Washington, DC

ST. JOHNS – Led by Scott Besko’s 18-point attack, the Redwings bested nonleague Lansing Everett 61-42 Dec. 10. The win gives the Redwings a 2-0, their best start in five years under Coach Caleb Miller. “We’ve gotten two nice wins against good opponents; anytime you can beat Haslett and Everett, that’s a good week,” Miller said. “The nice thing about our start to the season is we are working hard everyday in practice, and we are improving each day. By the time we get into January and February we will be prepared to play against the better teams in the area.” St. Johns jumped out on the Vikings with an 11-2 run. Chad VandenBerg, a 6-foot, 7-inch senior, jump started St. Johns with five points. Besko hit a long two-point-

er, then sank a pair of free-throw shots when a technical foul was called on Everett. Viking shooters found the range midway through the first quarter, scoring seven unanswered points. With time running out in the first quarter, St. Johns junior Bo Moore put St. Johns up 14-11 when he stole a Viking pass and drove the court for a layup. Redwing junior Nate Feldpausch started the Redwing attack in the second quarter by putting back a rebound. Junior Zach Glanz scored with an assist from Besko to give the Redwings an 18-11 lead. Once again the Vikings fought back, cutting the Redwing lead to one point midway through the second quarter. Besko sank a three pointer to put St. Johns up by four points. Besko hit two threes, a pair of long-range two-point

shots and was six-for-six from the free-throw line. “I like shooting from the outside, but I know you can’t just sit out there and start jacking them up,” Besko said. “We’ve been talking more about getting to the rim more and dishing it off. They were leaving me open for penetration and kicking it.” Moore followed Besko’s three pointer with one of his own to give St. Johns a 24-17 lead. Later in the second quarter, Glanz put St. Johns up by 10 points when he took a no-look pass from VandenBerg and drove to the hoop. Fouls began to take their toll on Everett in the second half. Viking Coach Johnny Jones had several players with three or more fouls at the end of the third quarter. “One thing we talked about coming into this game is that we wanted to play them hard, and I don’t think we did that,” Jones said.

The end of the year is fast approaching.

“We had more field goals than they did, but all the fouling we did sent them to the free-throw line.” Of the 14 points St. Johns scored in the fourth quarter, 12 came off free throws. The Redwings hit 28-of-41 free throws. The Vikings, in their first game of the season, hit 7-of-16 free throws. VandenBerg had a double-double for St. Johns, scoring 10 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. Glanz had 10 rebounds and eight points. Moore and Jonathan Harden each scored nine points. Nate Feldpausch had five points. St. Johns played Jackson Northwest Dec. 17. The Redwings will return to action after the Christmas break, traveling to Ionia Jan. 4.

Redwing swim second at Waverly Relays By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

DELTA TWP. – St. Johns boys swimming and diving team finished second at the 47th annual Howard Comstock Waverly Relays Dec. 8, taking first place in three of the nine relays. “We came in with hopes of finishing in the top three, and the guys went above and beyond in accomplishing that goal,” Redwing Coach Kim Brewbaker said. In the first swim of the season, the Redwings have already proven themselves a team to be reckoned with, turning in a state-qualifying time in the 200 medley relay. St. Johns divers Jerry

Cupples and Brennan LaBar took first place with 214.45 points. It was the first time St. Johns divers won the diving relay since 1977. “We always have high expectations of our kids, and what we saw tonight was very promising for our upcoming regular season,” Brewbaker said. Holt edged St. Johns for the top spot 213-200. Okemos was third (194); DeWitt, fourth (183); Grand Ledge, fifth (177). “We had so much excitement going into this meet, and the team got so much support from their teammates and fans it really made for a high energy meet,” he said. “We thought if we won

three relays we would have a chance of winning the meet.” Brewbaker said the Redwing times in the relays were better than last season, but it was a very fast meet. Placements for the Redwings were: 200 medley relay - Jeff Makarauskas, Steve Peterson, Alex Harry and Jacob Crosby, second (1:51.88). 400 freestyle relay - Tyler Curtis, Eric Rossow, Makarauskas and Aaron Stine, fifth (3:52.78). 200 butterfly relay - Peter Sperry, Gage Denney, Harry and Nick Grider, third (1:46.02). 500 crescendo relay Crosby, Ben Grider, Sperry and N.

Budget and revenue sharing

The City was able to develop another balanced budget in the face of declining revenues. Both tax receipts and state revenue sharing are down from the previous year. City staff members continue to do all they can to maintain the same high level of service for residents in the face of a smaller operating budget.

Street improvements

Working with a very limited road budget for fiscal year 2010-11, the City was able to make street improvements in several areas of town. Portions of Oakland, Sickels, Park streets and sections of North and South Lansing Street were re-paved or otherwise improved during the summer construction season. The City was also able to obtain a Congestion, Mitigation and Air Quality grant from the State of Michigan which will be used to improve Townsend Road for vehicular, non-vehicular and pedestrian traffic. This project is slated to begin in 2011. Future street construction projects are on indefinite hold as street funds are exhausted. With rising gas prices and alternative fuel and electric vehicles on the immediate horizon, the street reconstruction and maintenance revenue funds obtained

Land sales and acquisitions

The City sold a portion of land abutting the high school football field to the St. Johns Public Schools, so the school district could enhance the athletic complex at that site. Improved seating and expanded locker room facilities are a few of the changes residents will see as early as next football season. The City is purchasing two tracts of land near the old Railroad Depot for future parkland development. This is part of the City’s overall plan to be a trailhead destination once the Tri-County Rails to Trails is developed. The City has applied to be a member of the local trail authority which was formed in 2010. Membership will allow the City to have valuable input in the development of the trail and trail facilities.

Depot grounds

You will notice the ongoing construction of a multi-purpose pavilion on the Railroad Depot grounds. Without the efforts of several groups and individuals, as well as the continuing financial support of our St. Johns Rotary Club, this undertaking would not have been possible. The City

also obtained grant funds to offset a portion of the construction costs.

Industrial park

Speaking of construction, the City sold an Industrial Park parcel for development. Construction of a new State Department of Health and Human Services office complex is underway. This expansive facility will hopefully lead to additional jobs within the community.

Public safety

The Public Safety Director’s annual report showed a sharp decline in reported crime during the previous year. Fire protection services for the City remain strong with a very committed and highly trained group of firefighters. A new fire truck was purchased, resulting in two older model trucks being taken out of service.

South end drainage

The City continued to work on plans and projects calculated to improve storm water drainage in the southern sector of the City. Infiltration of storm water into the sanitary sewer collection lines must be reduced as mandated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

Appreciation for residents and volunteer committee members

I would be remiss not to mention our local residents as this year winds down. Because of the character of our citizens, because of the pride people take in their property and in the community as a whole, St. Johns is a terrific place to live. And continuing on that note, I’d like to particularly mention the many volunteers who serve on City committees; everything from the Library Board to the Planning Committee to the Parks and Rec Board and numerous others. There are thirteen citizen committees that really do a great deal to advance the mission of local government. So a big thanks to all of the committee members that devote their time towards the betterment of our community.

Holiday cheer

On behalf of the St. Johns City Commission and City staff, I want to wish you the very best during this holiday season. We look forward to serving you and the best interests of the community again next year. Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! –– Dennis LaForest is the st. Johns city manager.
