Wheat price up a buck By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – The wheat harvest is wrapping up on the Chant family farm, with yields looking to average about 80 to 85 bushel per acres. “It’s about what we average year-in year-out,” Chris Chant said about the yield from 450 acres of red and white wheat the three brothers and their father Lee raise. There’s good news for wheat farmers this year,

with prices hovering around $5 a bushel, up from $4 for last year at harvest time. Chant expected to wrap up the harvest last week. He said the quality of the wheat was “really good” and coming in about 18 percent moisture. With the chance of rain coming, Chant felt it was better to dry the grain to 13.5 percent for storage rather than wait for it to dry down naturally and risk getting sprout damage if the area experiences sev-

eral days of rain. Chant said all of the crops “look fantastic” on the family’s 6,000-acre farm. The Chants are one of the few area farmers that raise sugar beets, planting about 650 acres. He said if the weather continues to be favorable, he is looking for a bumper crop of beets this year, yielding about 30-ton per acre. They also grow corn, soybeans and about 350 acres of black beans.

Smoother street ahead By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Travel on South Oakland Street in St. Johns is a little smoother following a mill and fill project. “This project came about very quickly,” said Dennis LaForest, St. Johns city manager. The project includes Oakland Street from M-21 to Sturgis Street. Spring Street from M-21 to Railroad Street was also being done. The contractor, who did the North Lansing Street project, had an opening in his schedule, according to LaForest, and wanted to be able to keep his crew busy.

“They gave us a very good price,” said LaForest. Funds for the project come from capital improvement bonds that were sold in 2007. Those bond proceeds were used for several projects including streets, a new salt barn, park improvements including tennis courts and a basketball court. “We had some money left, and it had to be used,” said LaForest, explaining proceeds from bond sales must be used within a limited time frame. The city is trying to connect some of the street projects that have been in the past few years.

“We’re connecting some of the heavy traffic areas with these projects,” said LaForest. He said the city will be investigating some of the less travelled streets for future projects. LaForest said the city has been judicious in spending grant money. The Lansing street project was done with funds from Small Urban Project Grant money. “We get about $375,000 every three years,” said LaForest, “but Clinton County Road Commission, Clinton Area Transit and the city of See

ST. JOHNS — Broadway’s bright lights will shine at the St. Johns City Park Performance Shell July 21 when talented singers perform familiar favorites and new show tunes at the weekly Concert in the Park summer music series. The two-part “Broadway Night” show opens with popular local duo, Tom and Beth Webb, offering up some classic showtime standards. “We’re excited to take part in the evening of Broadway music,” Beth said. “It’s always fun to look through the music we have and make choices about what we will be singing.” The couple has chosen several new songs this year from the musical Ragtime, among others, and is eager to bring back some of the favorites they’ve done in past years. Beth and Tom are also thrilled to have their friend, Diantha Naftali, accompany them again this year. “The fact that she takes time out of her schedule and travels from Traverse City to do this means so much to us,” Tom said. Naftali is a well-known musician who spent many years in St. Johns as the organist at the First Congregational Church, as well as accompanying numerous St. Johns High School students throughout the years. Brand new Broadway tunes along with hilarious theatrics close out the evening in the second half of “Broadway Night.” Student performers from the Mint City Players will provide a sneak preview of scenes from the upcoming production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” The Tony award-winning musical is fresh off the national tour, recently closing on Broadway after nearly 1,200 performances. “This is not a show you want to miss,” director Ashley Bowen said about the musical that runs July 22-24 in the Wilson Center auditorium. “We’ve been laughing continuously in rehearsals and know that audiences will enjoy this musical. The cast includes both past and current performers from the St. Johns High School Theatre Department.” The double-dose of Broadway music begins at 7 p.m.; no admission charge. Concert in the Park is sponsored by the Clinton County Arts Council and the city of St. Johns, with support from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Af-

St. Johns all have to agree on who gets what portions of that money.” Half of the 2010 funds – or $187,500 – went to CATS. “We won’t get another grant from them (Small Urban Projects) until 2013.” LaForest said the elected officials are committed to improving the city’s infrastructure. “But when you only get grant money every three

years, there is only so much you can do.” Next spring the city will be doing a project on Townsend Road, but funds for that project are coming from a different source federal funds called Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grants. “We hope to start work in early spring,” he said, “but we also want to be sensitive to the heavier traffic on that road when school is in session.”

Pilgrim UMC plans worship at park July 25 ST. JOHNS — Sunday, July 18, Pilgrim United Methodist Church will hold its worship service at the Performance Shell in the city park. There will be just one service at 10 a.m. The full praise band will be there along with ushers, greeters, welcome center, etc. — the whole works. There will not be a nursery provided. There is a nice grassy area at the top of the hill near the pavilion that is being reserved for parents to sit with your wiggly ones. The main pavilion, which has picnic tables, is available for the morning as well and is accessible for persons with walkers and wheelchairs.

After the worship time, there will be drinks and snacks available in the pavilion for everyone. To help make the worship experience more positive, please note the following suggestions. • Bring a chair or blanket to sit on • Sunglasses/hat because there is no shade • Water bottle • Sunblock if it is hot, a sweater if it is cool If it is raining worship will be at the church, on the corner of Parks and DeWitt roads at 10 a.m. There will be plenty of parking, but plan to arrive early because the walk may

be a little farther than usual. Please leave the parking spots next to the pavilion (south side) for those with handicap needs and for those unable to walk long distances. Consider this: the healthier you are, the farther away you can park. Also, there are restrooms at the park but they are a little walk to get to. Dress casually and comfortably. Shorts are okay. Consider asking a neighbor or a friend to join you on this Sunday. Bring the whole family and plan on a great day celebrating God’s goodness. — From Pilgrim United Methodist Church

Many of the adult and teen mentors that have been involved in the Clinton County 4-H Key Mentoring Program have commented on how they became involved to help a younger child but end up seeing themselves grow and change at the same time. 9. Become a role model in someone else’s life. Adult mentor Erin Pohl feels that “seeing a mentee’s face light up when you come to spend time with them each week really shows how you end up being a role model for your mentee.” 8. Meet new people. Each of the mentors in the Clinton County 4-H Mentoring Program have had the chance to make new

7

with their mentee. 2. It is a lot of fun. 1. Finally, create connections for tomorrow by being a key to the future for a youth by helping a youth gain the confidence and skills that are needed for their future. So if this sounds like something you would be interested in and are at least 14 years of age, take this opportunity to find out how you can give just a couple hours of your life a week to the Clinton County 4-H Mentoring Program. Adults who might be interested in playing a lead mentoring role at any of the after-school sites around Clinton County are particularly needed. For information on how to be involved, contact Christine Sisung at the Clinton County MSU Extension office (989) 224-5239 or by e-mail sisungch@msu.edu. — From Clinton County 4-H Mentoring Program

‘Spelling Bee’ coming July 22-24 Final Gospel Barn

ST. JOHNS — Get set for “Spelling Bee” fun at Wilson Center in St. Johns. Get out your dictionaries and prepare for H-I-L-A-R-IO-U-S entertainment at the Wilson Center Auditorium when the Mint City Players present the musical comedy and amateur area premiere of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Show time is 7 p.m., July 22-24 at the venue that’s located on Cass Street, just a block south of the St. Johns downtown business district. The Tony award-winning musical is fresh off the national tour. It recently closed on Broadway after nearly 1,200 performances. A cast of great characters makes the musical come alive - the reigning spelling champion, the overachiever with the lisp, the kid with a host of health problems and the second alternate that never expected to compete - they all are united by a love of spelling. “This is not a show you want to miss,” said director Ashley Bowen. “We’ve been laughing continuously in rehearsals and know that audiences will enjoy this musical. The cast includes both past and current performers from the St. Johns High School Theatre Department.” Audience participation adds to the fun. “Four different audience ‘volunteers’ will be chosen at each performance to participate on stage in the spelling bee, making each performance unique,” Bowen said.

event of year is July 31 -Aug. 1

“Spelling Bee” cast members rehearse for July 22-24 performances. They are (from left) Ashley Kerby, Chris Robinson, Keean Quinn, Trish Amanda Hubbard, Joel Carpenter, Mallory Cormier and Travis Cormier. Volunteer spellers are encouraged to arrive at the theatre 30 minutes prior to curtain time on the day of each performance to sign up for the impromptu cast duty. Tickets for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” are $10 for adults, and $8 for students with a valid ID. All tickets are general admission. The show is suggested for ages 13 and older. Tickets are available by calling the box office, (989) 227-4210, and on show dates two hours prior to each performance time. Proceeds benefit renovations at the Wilson Center Auditorium. — From Mint City Players

LANSING — The Michigan Farm Bureau Young People’s Citizenship Seminar brought together 150 high school juniors and seniors from across the state, including four students from Clinton County, educating them about the American political system and inspiring them to take an active role in it. Theodore Motz, Michael Daley-Marten, Danielle Shields and Elizabeth Vincent attended the four-day seminar, June 28 through July 1 at Northwood University in Midland. The seminar challenged participants to rally around causes, develop political platforms, caucus, organize campaigns and ultimately win over the hearts and minds of their peers in a mock bid for office. Those who registered to vote made their choices by casting ballots in actual voting booths. This year’s platform issues dealt with current hot topics such as medicinal marijuana in the workplace, Bridge Card fraud, Social Security reform, and reinstatement of the Michigan Promise Scholarship. Throughout the seminar, a roster of speakers, including Detroit-area Holocaust survivor Martin Lowenberg and inspirational speaker Sheri Wohlfert, wove together themes of service, perseverance, self-motivation and leadership. The line-up also included Iraq War veteran Mark Thompson of St. Johns who addressed the meaning of freedom, Farm Bureau In-

In addition, Michigan Supreme Court Justice Robert Young, Jr., led an interactive session challenging students’ judgment regarding issues of constitutionality. “Regardless of what kind of environment or background the students come from, YPCS provides some valuable exposure to young people at the earliest stages of their political involvement as voters,” said Matt Kapp, YPCS organizer and MFB land use and elections specialist. “Our goal is to send them home with a greater sense of what it means to be an American, and with a well-informed interest in

participating in our democracy.” Kapp adds that the curriculum challenges students to consider subjects they may not normally think about, and “put that new knowledge into action by encouraging them to be active in their communities and the political process.” Daily social and recreational activities round out the seminar and help foster a sense of community among students from both rural and urban backgrounds, as participants are not required to come from Farm Bureau member families. Notable past YPCS participants include former Lt. Governor Dick Posthumus and U.S. Congressman Mike Rogers. — From Michigan Farm Bureau

WIC provides many health benefits STANTON — Two hundred thousand moms, babies and children less than 5 years of age currently receive nutritious foods from the Michigan Women, Infants & Children (WIC) program; that’s one out of every two babies born in Michigan. Locally, that number equates to 1,148 Clinton County residents receiving WIC benefits within the Mid-Michigan District Health Department jurisdiction. The Women, Infants & Children program is a federally funded supplemental nutrition program that has been serving low and moderate income pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum

women, infants and children up to age 5 with nutritional related health problems since 1972. The program provides a combination of nutrition education, supplemental foods, breastfeeding promotion and support and referrals to health care services. Pregnant and postpartum women and children (under age 5) receive food benefits for milk, cheese, eggs, cereals, peanut butter, dried beans or peas, fruit or vegetable juices, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and tortillas. If an infant isn’t fully breastfed, iron-fortified infant formula is available for

the first year of life as well. In addition, WIC also provides participants with coupons to purchase locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers’ markets through the Project Fresh program. There is no doubt that WIC has a profound effect on families. “Being a single mother, I couldn’t make it without WIC,” said one client. “I work full time and still have a hard time making ends meet. WIC has been a lifesaver.” “WIC has been very beneficial,” said another client. “My children and I would be in a very tough spot without

ST. JOHNS — Seeing bats flutter in the nighttime sky is a sure sign that summer is here. Most people avoid these critters at all costs, and for good reason. Bats are the most common animal in Michigan to transmit rabies, a viral infection contracted through direct contact from an infected animal. “Rabies is 100-percent fatal if left untreated,” said Dr. Graham, Medical Director for MMDHD. “We are advising families to bat-proof their homes by making sure to repair any loose soffits, flashings, eaves and siding.

Make sure all doors shut tightly with no gaps, that all window screens are not damaged or torn, and cover roof vents with screens.” Mid-Michigan District Health Department recommends if a bat is found in the room of a sleeping person that it be tested for rabies. Determining whether or not the bat has rabies may spare family members from undergoing rabies vaccination treatment. To catch a bat safely, first and foremost, make sure to capture the bat without touching it with your bare skin; leather work gloves are

ideal. Have a small box or coffee can, a piece of cardboard and tape ready. When the bat lands, approach it slowly. While wearing the gloves, place the box or coffee can over the bat. Slide the cardboard under the container to trap the bat inside. Tape the cardboard securely to the container and punch small holes in the cardboard, allowing the bat to breathe, and then contact the health department at (989) 224-2195 to discuss testing and treatment options. It is important to note that if the bat’s head is crushed it

it.”

WIC has a proven track record of demonstrating a positive effect on pregnancy outcomes, child growth and development. Research shows that the earlier a pregnant woman receives nutritional benefits from WIC, the more likely she is to seek prenatal care and deliver a normal weight infant. For every dollar spent by this program, more than three dollars in subsequent health care costs are saved. Benefits to children participating in WIC include: • Higher rates of immunizations against childhood diseases. • Better vocabularies and

— From Mid-Michigan District Health Department


“It’s a really good crop this year,” Todosciuk says about the farm’s sweet corn that’s picked fresh every day, seven days a week. “Our Gourmet Sweet Corn is picked by hand, not machine-harvested - you have to be gentle with it.” All that gentle hand-picking began the first week in July, and will continue throughout the growing season. “We actually plant on a regular basis from April until July so that we can harvest fresh corn every day from July until October,” Todosciuk says, noting that different varieties are used for the varied growing conditions during that time period. One aspect of Andy T’s sweet corn remains the same however, no matter when it’s been planted or is harvested - it’s always sweet and tender. “Sugar enhanced sweet corn is very tender but only lasts a couple days; super sweet sweet corn is really sweet, but it can be tough and not tender to eat,” the sweet corn expert says. “Our Gourmet Sweet Corn is a combination of both, creating a super sweet and fresh flavor that lasts and is always tender - it’s the best of both worlds.” That reputation for quality is what attracts custom-

ers and keeps them coming back for more all summer long. “It’s always fresh every day right here in the market, and because we pick it at the ‘milk stage’ our Gourmet Sweet Corn maintains its flavor beyond the ripe stage unlike most sweet corn,” he says. “It stores really well if you take care of it properly refrigerated at 34 degrees.” The long-time grower is equally particular about what goes into his fields where the sweet corn and other crops are planted. Fertilizer developed by Agrium Advanced Technologies helps Andy T’s corn grow and is good for the soil. “It’s environmentally friendly,” Todosciuk says. “We’re very careful about how we treat and maintain our land.” For detailed information on Andy T’s Gourmet Sweet Corn and its other good eats, visit online at www.andyts.com Andy T’s is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week; call (989) 224-7674 or email andyts@charter.net — From Andy T’s Farm Market

ELECTION 2010: Clinton County Commissioner Race, 1st District

Clinton County News

14 About the race:

No Democrats are running for this positions, so the winner of the primary election Aug. 3 will be the Clinton County Commissioner for the 1st District for the next two years. The term will expire December 31, 2012

Kenneth L. Farley

Party: Republican Age: 44 w City of residence: Fowler w Occupation: President of Kens Kar Kare & Towing L.L.C. w Education: High school diploma and many trade school and business management classes. w Political experience: Most Holy Trinity school board and secretary for the Michigan Tow Association. w Family: Married, with 3 boys. w Campaign website: None. What makes you most qualified to hold this office? Fourteen years running a business, and a desire to improve the community. What are the three most important issues w

w

facing the county and how would you address them? Loss of revenue, loss of jobs and politicians becoming out of touch with their constituents. Loss of revenue could be fixed by cutting spending on non-essential programs and perks. To address job loss, I would meet with business owners and managers and see what could be done to stimulate growth. I would organize town-hall meetings to find out what issues that constituents have and carry those forward. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? Emergency services and roads. Infrastructure and emergency services are the most basic building blocks of the community and are vital to the running of the county, all other services stem from them.

David W. Pohl (i)

Party: Republican Age: 67 w City of residence: Fowler w Occupation: Currently serving as Clinton County commissioner, District 1. Provide property valuation service to the City of Belding in Ionia County. Currently own and for 16 years operated a grain and w

w Education: Bachelor of Science, Animal Science,

MSU 1969 Numerous real estate related classes w Political experience: 20 years as Dallas Township supervisor, Clinton County Clinton County commissioner since 2002 Past president, Clinton Area Ambulance Service w Family: Married, five adult children w Campaign website: None. What makes you most qualified to hold this office? - The 28 years experience of both township and county government through good and tough times. This experience has been valuable in recent years to help keep the county in a solid financial position. - The agricultural background provides a better understanding of a large part of the Clinton County economy. - Having owned and operated an incorporated business I am familiar with some of the challenges associated with business. - With two years in the Peace Corps in Peru and also Military duty I feel I have demonstrated the willingness to serve. What are the three most important issues facing the county and how would you address them?

- Finances. As Property values fall so do the revenues that counties rely on. Thus far we have been able to control finances through cross training, greater use of technology, moving personnel from within to fill retirements and vacancies. Also the capital improvement budget may become even leaner/ -Public Safety. It seems as the economy gets tougher so do the needs for more effective police presence. Some additional training leading to more reliance on neighborhood watch groups can be of significant help. - Juvenile System. This is truly our future. The costs associated with kids in special facilities can take a great toll in kids’ lives and public finance. By our judges taking a proactive role in these families there seems to be progress. Hopefully this can continue for the benefit of the community and especially the kids. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? - These first two both contribute to the fundamental quality of life and should be kept available at a high level. However, these areas must continually search for greater efficiencies. - Public Safety should be very high on the list. - Physical and mental health programs are close behind. The most vital element is the vision and foresight to see our way through these difficulties.

Calling baby boomers, senior center is for you

ST. JOHNS — One of the things board members of the Clinton County Senior Center hear too often about coming to the center is, “I’m not old enough.” Well, if you are sixty or over (or even in your 50’s) “you are old enough.” Sure, not every sixty year old is into bingo, but there is more going on than that. There is Euchre, exercise programs, educational speakers and day trips.

The board is very receptive to adding new activities. They just need to know what those activities should be. “We need more of the baby boomers to come down, so we can find out what kinds of activities they want, so we can plan them” said Brenda Terpening, board member and fundraising chair. “We have a few younger seniors that come down now, but it is hard, and expensive, to plan

activities for two or three people. We need more involvement from community members, so we can be what the next generation of senior citizens need in our community,” said Terpening. The Clinton County Senior Center is located at 201 E. Walker St. in St. Johns on the corner of Walker and Spring streets, just one block north of M-21, in downtown St. Johns. It is open Monday,

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Terpening noted that “even if you still think you are too young for us, think about coming down to volunteer or to organize an event for others. There is always gardening to do, meals to be served, and we are always looking for people to bake cookies for bake sales, make pies for Monday lunches or cook our Monday lunches. At the

Dental practice is family for Koenigsknechts By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Dentistry is a family affair for the Koenigsknechts. Dr. Don Koenigsknecht opened his dental practice in St. Johns in 1978, about six months before his first son was born. In 1985, he moved the practice to its current location at 102 E. Cass St. in St. Johns. Twenty years later, his older son, Nick joined the practice. Now Dr. Nick has purchased the practice from his father. But the family involvement includes more than just the father-son dental duo. Don’s wife Colleen has been involved from the beginning, doing much of the bookkeeping over the years. Now Dr. Nick’s wife Erin is phasing in, taking over some of the bookkeeping responsibilities. And within a year, there’ll be another Dr. Koenigsknecht, DDS when Jonathan, the younger of the Koenigsknecht sons, finishes dental school at the University of Michigan and joins the practice. Koenigsknecht Family Dentistry is a general dentistry practice that does just about all aspects of dental care, except orthodontia. “We do crowns and bridges. We restore implants,” said Dr. Nick. “We do some

“I was very lucky to be able to come back to St. Johns and have a mentor to guide me along, to have someone else to rely on.” – Dr. Nick Koenigsknecht root canals, veneers and some extractions.” Before Dr. Nick joined the practice in 2005, Dr. Don wasn’t able to do as much. “I was referring some of those things out,” said Dr. Don. “It was mainly a time factor.” But now patients have pretty much one stop for all their dental needs. “It’s a nice service for the patients,” said Dr. Don. “It’s more convenient, and it costs a little less this way.” The father-son duo enjoys their arrangement. Dr. Don cut back his hours when Dr. Nick joined him, and he’ll continue working Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the foreseeable future. “I think we’re both lucky,” said Dr. Nick. “I was very lucky to be able to come back to St. Johns and

have a mentor to guide me along, to have someone else to rely on.” Dr. Nick says it is also very nice for him to be back in the community where he grew up. “You can’t just be in a community and take from it,” said Colleen. “You have to give back.” Dr. Nick is doing plenty of giving back. He is president of the Rotary Club and secretary of the St. Johns Board of Education. But it’s more than that too. “I get to see patients in town, not just in the office,” he said, “and that makes it more of a relationship. I think the children particularly like it. They see me around and know I’m not just the dentist, but a regular person.” As for working with his dad, Dr. Nick says it’s a very good thing. “We work very well together,” he said. “We’ve integrated our individual styles and our individual strengths.” Dr. Don feels very good about selling his practice to his son. “For all the people involved, it’s a good thing,” said Dr. Don. “When you get ready to sell a practice, you want your patients to go to someone you trust. “You want them to have the same quality of care they’ve become accustomed to. I know that is the case with Dr. Nick taking over.

Dr. Nick Koenigsknecht and Dr. Don Koenigsknecht (center) work together at Koenigsknecht Family Dentistry. Dr. Nick recently bought the practice from his father. And I get to transition to a part-time basis. Everybody gains.” Consistency for the patients is something Koenigsknecht Family Dentistry values. “”A majority of the staff has been here over 15 years,” said Dr. Don. Others joined the staff when Dr. Nick arrived and additional help was needed to keep pace with the growing practice. “I can’t imagine having a better staff,” said Dr. Nick. 0100019769

“They know the patients. They work to accommodate their schedules,” said Colleen. “And they work very hard to stay on schedule, because we respect people’s time too.” When Jonathan joins the practice in a year or so, that will be very good too, says Dr. Nick. “Jonathan and I get along very well,” he said. The Koenigsknechts all agree the family practice is a good thing. “It’s always profession-

al,” says Dr. Nick, “but it’s been fun too. It’s a good working environment and good working relationships.” Koenigsknecht Family Dentistry is located at 100 E. Cass St. in St. Johns. The practice welcomes new patients. Call (989) 224-2319 to schedule an appointment. Office hours are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

What do Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and a duo of singing guitar players have in common? They are all part of the Fun Family Friday on July 23 downtown St. Johns from 6–8 p.m.. Did you know that you can become a Boy Scout or Girl Scout starting in first grade? And you can remain in Scouts past high school? Both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts will have demonstrations and activities set up for participants to find out what it is like to be a

Scout. The Boy Scouts will set up tents they use for camping, a First-Aid station, knottying and various crafts. The Girls Scouts are planning to play some Girl Scout games, possibly teach some Girl Scout songs and have the kids do an art project to go along with a Safety Patch. The scouting activities and information will be displayed near the Depot from 6-7 p.m. Also watch for Sharon Shutes, that wonderful

face-painter, to be back. Starting at 7 p.m., the audience will be treated to John Kelly and Dawn Artman performing near the gazebo for the Depot Family Concert Series. This energetic duo performs a wide variety of musical selections covering many different styles and eras. Audiences have delighted in singing along while Artman and Kelly present familiar songs by The Everly Brothers, Janis Joplin, Neil Diamond and more. Their

voices blend seamlessly with rich vocal harmonies, accompanied by John’s skillful guitar playing and Dawn’s delightful keyboard flourishes. Kelly has performed many times in several area

venues over the years, including the Performance Shell in the park and both Wilson Auditorium and the St. Johns High School auditorium. The groups he has performed with include Flashback, Slingshot, The

Kelly Family Band and the Mid-Michigan Festival Orchestra. Artman has performed at the Performance Shell with Flashback. — From Clinton County Arts Council

Annual back-to-school clothing event coming ST. JOHNS — The Clinton County Department of Human Services and other local agencies, businesses and churches are sponsoring the sixth annual “Back to School” clothing event. They are in need of “good” used school-age clothing (kindergarten through high school) that will be passed out free to the public on Aug. 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Smith Hall

located at the fairgrounds in St. Johns. Last year over 200 children were helped and they hope to help even more this year. For those who don’t have children but wish to help, donations of new underwear and socks for the children are needed. Donated clothing items can be dropped off at the Department of Human Ser-

vices office in St. Johns, 201 W. Railroad St. Volunteers are also needed to help set up for the event. Set-up day is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 30 starting at 10 a.m. Questions can be directed to Dan Carley at DHS at (989) 224-5555. — From Clinton/Gratiot Department of Human Services

Foresters honor Rademacher Catholic Order of Foresters (COF) presented a Richard Tobin Benevolence Award to general Agent John Rademacher of Fowler, one of COF’s top producers. Recipients select an organization to receive a $500 donation in their name. Rademacher’s award supports VFW Post 3733 efforts to construct a handicap accessible restroom addition. The awards are made

possible through COF’s Welfare and Relief fund established in the late President Richard Tobin’s will and designated for fraternal good works. According to sales vice president Thomas Adamson, “The benevolence awards reflect COF’s ongoing fraternal commitment while also providing an opportunity for winning agents to support their communities.” Established in 1883,

Catholic Order of Foresters, headquartered in Naperville, Ill., is a not-for-profit fraternal benefit insurance organization with nationwide membership. COF is committed to providing members with quality life insurance plans, annuities, and added-value fraternal benefits. Members support and raise money for school, parish, community, and humanitarian needs.

Bingham Twp. needs fire millage to maintain service The Bingham Township Board has placed a millage request for fire and emergency services on the Aug. 3 primary election ballot. The request asks Guest for a column renewal of up to 1 mill James Ostrowski that expired with the December 2009 winter taxes. This renewal is again for a period of two years. The cost to a property owner with a taxable value of $100,000 would be $100 per year on the 2010 and 2011 winter tax bills.

The agreement that Bingham Township with the Clinton Area Fire and Rescue (CAFR) will terminate in June 2011. The board unanimously agreed to advise CAFR, along with Greenbush and Victor Townships that we will not be renewing the agreement as it currently exists. We felt changes have to be made in order to represent the best interests of our township. We also face decreasing revenues along with other budge shortfalls. It is our fiduciary responsibility to look at every expenditure the township makes in order to assure our residents are getting maximum value. Based on the results of the survey many of you participated in earlier this year, a

vast majority felt we must look at any and all options available to us for fire service to reduce costs to the township. To this end, we are meeting with the other two members of CAFR to see if there is a willingness to implement changes in a new agreement that would address the concerns of Bingham Township as well as a real desire towards reducing the costs of operating CAFR. In order to assure that fire service to our property owners continue uninterrupted, we have also started talks and have received proposals from the City of St. Johns that represent contracted and future partnership agreements with them. Under our current budget situation, we

need this millage renewal to help cover part of the cost of this final year of the current CAFR agreement and depending on what fire service agreements come forward after September 2011, we will need all or part of these millage funds to maintain a balanced budget the following year and in the years to come. Your township board is committed to providing the best possible fire protection and emergency services for our residents but within the constraints of our ever-tightening budget situation. Please get involved the please vote Aug. 3. James Ostrowski is the Bingham Township Supervisor.

Letters to the editor Stop digging up wildflowers

I just arrived home from work, where on my drive home I witnessed a woman digging up wildflowers in plain sight of people driving by. What is with you people? Not only is this an illegal act, but it is unethical. The more I think of this, the more I realize how selfish of an act this is: “This plant shall be mine in my yard!” It happened to be a wildflower that, if it gets pollinated, will produce many seeds that can be harvested in late September or early October. You can plant these instead of digging it up. Many wildflowers are rare and need to be left alone to reproduce and become more populated. And even more wildflowers only grow in their specific soil type and local environment. They won’t even grow in your yard. Stop digging up wildflowers. What is with you people. Craig Stoehr, DeWitt

McDonald’s insurance denies claims

We would like to comment on the letter submitted by Betty Kentfield in the June 13 issue of the community news. We had a similar incident happen at the St. Johns McDonald’s last summer. However, we did report the fall immediately to the manager, had witnesses, who thankfully were paramedics dining there at the time, and still, McDonald Corporation rejected our medical claim. Their theory was “that there was no evidence that McDonald’s was the proximate cause of the incident.” So Betty, we understand your frustration, because it appears no matter how much proof, how many witnesses, or documentation you have, McDonald’s insurance company finds a loop hole to not validate your claim.

I have been on the Board of Trustees of the Ovid Middlebury Emergency Services Authority (OMESA) since it was formed in 2003. Before that, I was on the boards for the former fire department and ambulance services. I remember why Ovid and Middlebury Townships joined together to originally start our ambulance service, and why we later combined the fire department and ambulance. These important life-saving services have always been supported by the people who have repeatedly approved millages to fund them. OMESA is currently operating in the black and does not project a budget deficit this year. The board has recently considered hiring an outside consultant to examine the operations of OMESA ,with particular attention to considering separation of ambulance and fire, and privatizing the ambulance service. This consultant would charge $13,000 to tell us what we already know: We could save money by laying off senior leadership and hiring new, less-experienced chiefs; the total cost of operating the ambulance is more than we would pay to contract with a private service. The cost of the consultant simply does not seem like good use of tax dollars. Governments all over the state have, through early retirements and layoffs, saved money by reducing the number of senior employees and bringing in new people that get a lower salary and fewer benefits. OMESA does not pay our chiefs enough to get significant savings by getting rid of the dedicated, professional people currently filling those positions. Anyone who has dealt with an inexperienced bureaucrat that has replaced knowledgeable, experienced staff knows that the loss of knowledge and experience is not worth what the government “saved.” Most importantly, the people of Ovid and Middlebury townships have made it very clear they want what OMESA provides: local people providing ambulance service locally. When the issue has come up in the past, no one spoke in favor of contracting for ambulance services. When the request for millage has been placed on the ballot, the voters approve funds for operations. Even though the public has made its feelings known, certain members of the OMESA board continue to push, quietly and behind the scenes, for privatization. I will continue to oppose privatizing ambulance services and the separation of fire and ambulance. I strongly oppose wasting taxpayer money on an outside consulting firm, and a needless study and report that will tell us what we already know. James McClelland Ovid Township

year. Michigan needs strong leadership, and Pete Hoekstra is the only candidate who has the legislative, business and executive experience necessary to get things done. Pete understands that it is essential to once again make Michigan a state where businesses want to locate and create jobs. He will work hard to streamline state government, reform the tax code, remove bureaucratic red tape, and bring common sense back to Lansing. Pete doesn’t just talk about these issues, he has lived them. That is why he was named a “Hero of the Taxpayer” by Americans for Tax Reform, and given the “Spirit of Enterprise” award by the United States Chamber of Commerce. Elections have consequences. Michigan has a great opportunity to get back on track, but we need proven leadership to make it happen. Pete Hoekstra is ready to provide that leadership. I am proud to support Pete, and Michigan will be lucky to have him as our next Governor. Matt Cutler, DeWitt

Everyone wins at ‘Chicks’ annual golf outing added to the day. Among them was a visor provided to each player contributed by a former St. Johns resident from Colorado, John Bond, and a host of prizes by raffle, a staple golf outing feature. One half a 50/50 raffle went to another former St. Johns resident Sally Hayne, one of the members of the Durner sisters team. Firstbank hosted a continental breakfast and McKenzie Crosby Insurance Agency sponsored and end of day buffet. In between, AgroCulture Liquid Fertilizer and a Wal-Mart employee grant teamed up to offer lunch at the turn. And, the 26 hole sponsors were identified on signs prepared and donated by Bruce Delong of Michigan Graphics and Signs. The hole signs, planted at tee locations around the course recognized the following contributors: Avery Vision Center, Golden EFX Salon, Ovid-Elsie Animal Clinic, Bee’s Sports, FifthThird Bank, Sirrine & Assoc. Inc., Big Boy Restaurant, Wooden Nickel, Country Store, R&H Auto Sales, RSI Home Improvement, Allaby & Brewbaker Insurance Agency, Keck-Coleman Funeral Home, Philip and Julie Schrantz, St. Johns MiniStorage, Don and Drucilla Rademacher, The Masters Auto Wash and Quick Lube, RSI/Wayne Door, Dr. Bob Janson, Uncle John’s Cider Mill, Uncle John’s Fruit Winery, Detloff Financial Planning, B&B Financial Services, Clinton County Medical Center and the Hitching Post Restaurant. “There certainly are

countless ‘thank you’s’ needed for many supporters, and we are deeply appreciative,” said Clock. “The generosity shown to us (the Auxiliary) is truly indicative of the generous spirit that prevails in our community. To each sponsor, donor contributor and player we offer sincere gratitude along with assurance that the hospital and patient care is embraced by everyone’s participation.” — From Sparrow Clinton Hospital

ST. JOHNS — With a good slate of golfers and a list of sponsors as long as the course, Sparrow Clinton Auxiliary seemed to be the victor of the recent “Chicks for Charity” all women golf outing. While three teams tied for top honors, members of the hospital Auxiliary were the day’s acknowledged winners, walking off the course with a bank deposit bag crammed with cash and a promise for strengthening their treasury in support of the hospital. The top teams scrambled for a total of 70 strokes and the final standings were determined by the group that scored best on the Emerald’s par three holes. The final standings found Mohre Soft Water in first place, Fifth Third Bank in second followed by the team from Ovid Weekly. The Barber’s Floors and More group was next in line with a 72. Kathie Clock, Auxiliary co-president, summed up the day by expressing appreciation for the weather, the players, the sponsors and staff at the Emerald. “It would be difficult to expect a nicer golfing day,” said Clock, “and that matched with our tenacious ‘chicks,’ generous sponsors and cooperative Emerald staff, made for another wonderful event. I can only think of one other thing that might have added excitement, that being a hole in one that would have given the player $5,000.” That prize was sponsored by Allaby and Brewbaker Insurance Agency. Off the course, a number of other gifts and surprises

BROOKLYN - DeWitt’s Chad Finley is pursuing his dream, making it happen one left turn at a time on the NASCAR race tracks at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour. Finley, who just turned 18 years old, has been racing in ARCA competitions for two seasons. He has a five-year goal of making the NASCAR Cup Series, the top rung of the American stock car racing ladder, where salaries and endorsements net the top drivers several million dollars each year. “ARCA doesn’t have the big winnings; it’s for starting

International Speedway, finishing seventh. MIS is another superspeedway with a two-mile D-shaped oval track. Finley likes the long straightaway where he can reach about 205 miles per hour.

Fun on straightaway

“It’s a lot of fun,” he said about speeding down the straightaway. “You don’t realize you are going that fast until you hit something, and I’ve been blessed to have not hit anything at that speed. Hopefully I can keep it that way.”

Guests at track

Principal Mark Horak and Finley has started well. students Kenny Clark and Now in his second season, Elijah Webster to MIS to Finley is old enough to com- spend the day at the track. pete on the superspeedways “I thought he did pretty used for NASCAR races. well for the first time on Under ARCA rules, drivthe track,” Clark, a NASCAR ers under 18 years old canfan, said about Finley’s drivnot race on tracks longer ing. than one mile because of Clark, Webster and Horconcerns with top speeds. ak spent the day on the In his first year on the infield, getting autographs ARCA circuit, a 17-year-old and watching the mechanics Finley had three top-10 finprepare the cars.

Pole at Rockingham

Finley won the pole at the famed Rockingham Speedway and led for 42 laps before getting involved in a chain-reaction accident that damaged the front end of his car, affecting the car’s handling. Finley finished 15th. Finley is off to another solid start this season with two top-10 finishes and an 11th-place finish at Texas. His best finish this year was third at Pocono on the 2.5-mile D-shaped oval.

Graduation 2010

2009 Monte Carlo

Finley drives a 2009 Monte Carlo that puts out about 800 horsepower. Like the NASCAR racers on television, Finley is in and out of the pits with four new tires and two cans of racing fuel in about 14 seconds. One of Finley’s biggest battles comes off the track, trying to find sponsors to offset the costs of racing. Each race costs about $80,000 to compete. An engine costs about $7,500 and has to be rebuilt after each race. Because of the costs to compete, Finley has raced in only three of the nine ARCA races so far this season.

No wrecked cars

“I haven’t torn up any race cars; anytime you tear up a car it costs a lot of money to fix, and we don’t have a lot of money right now,” he said. “So what we are doing is racing smart, and we are going to keep it up.” On his web site (chadfinleyracing.com) is a “Help Chad” link inviting readers to become partners.

He has a 6-1 season record and also blasted a home run in the game. Nurenberg was 1-for-3 with a two-run double. Robinson and Jump each went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Allen Manyen of Mason was 2-for-3. After two lengthy rain delays, a coaching ejection, three lead changes and a game that took more than five hours to complete, Post 205’s title hopes came up short in a 13-11 loss to St. Joseph Post 163. “It was an exciting game, but it’s just never fun to end up on the short end of the stick,” Gast said. “We had some good pitching left that just wasn’t so good in this one.” DeClarke blasted a tworun home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, tying the game at 8-8.

“He has been our guy all season long, and he would have been the MVP of this tournament had we won,” Gast said of DeClarke. “He means so much to this team - and for him, I would have loved to seen us win this tournament.” Things unraveled in the top of the seventh as St. Joseph scored five runs, two of which were unearned, to take a 13-8 lead. Post 205 added three runs in the bottom of the seventh on a homer by Robinson, but it was not enough to overcome St. Joseph. Robinson went 3-for-4 with four RBI. Joy had a two-run homer. Jump was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Nurenberg was 3-for-5 with a two-run double. Post 205 had four errors in the title game. East Lansing came up short against the CMU All Stars, losing 9-4 July 13. “It was not a typical game for us,” Gast said. “We just had a lot of errors, and they are a good team. We swept them twice at MSU, so they

were hungry to get after us.” Monette was the losing pitcher. Robinson was 2-for-2. Watters was 2-for-4. Post 205 plays in the Palomino State Tournament at Mt. Pleasant July 21-24.
