Maple Rapids celebrates Lamplighter Fest Aug. 27-29 By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

MAPLE RAPIDS – The Village of Maple Rapids will celebrate its annual Lamplighter Festival Aug. 27-29, but this year’s festival has special significance. It will also be a celebration of the village’s 175th year. The Lamplighter Festival is the village’s way of celebrating itself each year. The village is small and somewhat isolated, exactly what the people who live there want as their home and place to raise their families.

Friday, Aug. 27 The festival officially kicks off Friday, Aug. 27 with the traditional potluck dinner and opening ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on the tennis court. See

ST. JOHNS — Play it again, Sam … That’s what we heard. People enjoyed the First Fun Family Fridays progressive dinner so much, the planners thought they’d offer it once again. A new twist has been added to the event … A scavenger hunt. It’s a chance to check out some sights in the downtown St. Johns area and become eligible for prize drawings. Look around as you select and enjoy your progressive dinner menu items, see if you can identify the sights that have become so familiar we don’t really see them. Tables and chairs will be available by the Art Gallery and the Depot as well, however families may want to play it safe and bring a blanket to picnic on.

ST. JOHNS - It’s a threepeat. Concert in the Park audiences who’ve loved Matt King’s Elvis Presley Tribute Show the past two seasons will be pleased to know that the “Hound Dog” is returning again in 2010. King is “Elvis” at the Aug. 25 Concert in the Park season finale at the St. Johns City Park Performance Shell. The show begins at 7 p.m.; no admission charge. A resident of Leslie, King has travelled all over the United States and Europe entertaining audiences with his unique ability to bring to the “King” to life via his moves, mannerisms, looks and costuming - and, of course, that distinctive voice. He’s earned national and international acclaim for the Elvis show he’s been performing on a professional level for the past 18 years. Among his many honors are first-place awards in 2007 in the Soaring Eagle Casino

& Resort’s Elvis Contest, and the 2004 Elvis European Championship. “Some guys choreograph every move - I try to capture the way Elvis expressed himself for the audience. The way he moved his hand, shook his leg or held the mic,” King said. Attention to detail - like the 30-plus Elvis costumes contained in King’s wardrobe - lend authenticity to his shows. “They’re all here: the peacock, the Arabian, the sundial, the sunburst, the dragon,” he said. 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 Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Sheriff awards scholarships, announces golf outing By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS — The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office recently presented scholarships to two 2010 graduates of St. Johns High School. “We are very pleased to present these scholarships to two very deserving young students,” said Clinton County Sheriff Wayne Kangas. Savanna McCurdy received the $1,000 Clinton County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Scholarship. McCurdy is enrolled at Lansing Community College where she will study law enforcement. During her final two years at St. Johns High School McCurdy was enrolled in the CCRESA Career Connections program for Law Enforcement, taught by Chris Daniels. “That was a really great experience,” said McCurdy. McCurdy is currently working at Ryan’s Roadhouse, where she is a waitress. Her long-term goal is

to get a position with the Texas Border Patrol after completing the Law Enforcement program at LCC. Kevin Gartside is the 2010 recipient of the Tom Kangas Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is given in memory of Tom Kangas, son of Sheriff Kangas and is available to a deserving applicant who is pursuing a career in a field of public service. Gartside is enrolled in the Fire Academy at Lansing Community College. He is currently a volunteer firefighter with the St. Johns Fire Department. “I was in the fire academy at night during my senior year,” said Gartside. Next year he will be taking the paramedic portion of the fire fighter program. Gartside’s goal is to get a job with a fire department, full time, somewhere, once he completes his training. “I’d really like to work in Hawaii, eventually,” he said. Funding for the law enforcement scholarship comes from an arrangement Clinton County has

with LCC. Officers for Clinton County serve as instructors and lecturers at LCC in the law enforcement program, and in return the department earns credit toward the scholarships. Funding for the Tom Kangas scholarship is raised through an annual golf outing. This year’s golf outing is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 17 at the Emerald Golf Course in St. Johns. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. The outing features a 4-person scramble format. Cost is $45 per player an includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, lunch plus one free round of golf on your next visit to The Emerald. Sponsorship opportunities are still available as well. A sponsor sign recognizing your contribution will be displayed at the outing, for a donation of $100. This scholarship fund is non-profit 501(c)(3), so contributions are tax deductible. To be a sponsor, contact Det/Sgt. Fritz Sandberg at

Mint Festival 2010 draws crowds By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS — The 26th annual St. Johns Mint Festival is in the record books. Numbers are still being compiled, but it appears they are very similar to numbers from 2009, according to Brenda Terpening, Mint Festival administrator. “For the extreme heat we had, we were very pleased with the turnout and the participation.” Attendance at the Friday Senior Citizen Day activities was up considerably. “We had 190 participants this year compared to 130 last year,” said Terpening. Kids activities were again very popular, despite the relentless heat. “The dog shows were a huge success,” said Terpening, “and the petting zoo was very popular.” Of course, Kids World was also very popular again this year. “Who doesn’t like a 25-cent game?” said Terpening. Though the final receipts have yet to be tallied, Terpening is confident the weather didn’t have the negative impact some people feared it might. After all, it could have been raining all weekend.

Penny Tahvonen didn’t seem to be too bothered by the heat and humidity. She is a member of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Posse, also known as the Mounted Division.

The float from Grove Bible Church was very popular - and very busy - as members handed out bottles of icy cold water to parade spectators. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all smooth sailing in the Mint Parade. This tractor balked on Oakland Street, but was soon under way again.

Andy T, from Andy Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm Market is always a big hit in the Grand Mint Parade. This year he was the Grand Marshal - and gave ears of his gourmet sweet corn to parade viewers. The petting zoo was at the Mint Festival all three days this year, and it drew plenty of attention, especially from the kids.

Wind energy workshop is Sept. 8 at MSU EAST LANSING — A pair of Michigan State University agricultural economists will present “Small Wind: Will it Work for You?” at locations throughout the state Aug. 24–Sept. 9. The pair will be in Clinton County Wednesday, Sept. 8, 6–9 p.m. at Smith Hall, Clinton County Fairgrounds, 800 Sickles St., St. Johns Drs. Steve Harsh and Lynn Hamilton, professor and visiting associate professor, respectively, in MSU’s Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics, are working with MSU Extension educators in seven counties to talk to residents about using small wind turbines to power a farm, home or business.

Recent state and federal laws have made wind energy a much better investment than in the past, Hamilton said. “One of our goals, through these workshops, is to go over those policy changes and to talk about steps to a successful wind project,” she said. Hamilton and Harsh have developed a Michigan-specific checklist of factors to consider before investing in a wind turbine to help residents determine whether a wind turbine is right for them. During the workshop, case studies will be presented using a small wind economic model and Michigan wind data collected from the MSU anemometer loan program to show what factors make a difference in making a turbine

affordable. Additionally, the presenters will focus on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Renewable Energy for America Program (REAP), which provides grants for farms and rural small businesses. “More than 70 million in grants have been allocated for 2011 and 2012,” Hamilton said, “so we would like to help Michigan farmers and rural small business owners get some of those dollars.” For more information regarding one of the workshops, contact the local MSU Extension office or Hamilton at (517) 432-6656. No registration is necessary for these events. — From Michigan State University

Opsommer questions plan for liquor distribution LANSING — State Rep. Paul Opsommer, R-DeWitt, is questioning a new plan to increase state coffers by reducing the number of legally authorized liquor distributors in the state down to one, a move that would in effect create a state-sanctioned monopoly. Although details are incomplete, under one scenario the “winning” distributor would be allowed to stay in business by paying the state a large lump sum that would then go toward balancing the budget.

What would happen to the other distributors, and their jobs, has yet to be addressed. “There are far too many examples of private-public partnerships being created that give the illusion of government and private businesses working together when in actuality it is just the state picking winners and losers and creating an environment that can easily lead to corruption,” said Opsommer. “If anything, we should be encouraging more competition, not less. If the only

reason the governor is considering this is because Michigan is strapped for cash, then this proposal is going to be viewed as nothing less than a political shakedown very quickly.” Opsommer is pressing for additional details, but Lansing insiders are speculating that the “price” to stay in business may be as high as $75 million in exchange for the remaining distributor getting exclusivity to be the sole shipper in the state over the course of a multi-year contract. “Simply

put, state government should not be authorizing private monopolies,” said Opsommer. “There is a good reason to have at least two large players in this field to make sure neither one is able to create new fees or rules that could hurt restaurants and other businesses, a move that would increase prices that would ultimately be borne by customers and taxpayers.” — From the office of State Representative Paul Opsommer

Letters to the editor Plan to attend Sandbox Party Convention We are writing to inform area parents of a wonderful (and free) opportunity to improve the lives of all of our children: The Sandbox Party Convention. On Aug. 26, members from the Great Start Collaborative of Clinton County will be heading to Lansing to join people from 55 other Great Start Collaboratives and 70 Parent coalitions for a day of education, entertainment, and advocacy. The Sandbox Party Convention is a nonpartisan event, committed to promoting the idea that early childhood is crucial to a prosperous future for Michigan. Economists and business leaders agree that early childhood programs have a tremendously positive impact on the strength and stability of our economy. A recent

study found that Michigan saves billions annually due to previous investments in prekindergarten programs. The event will include live performances, mock elections for children, speeches by athletes, business leaders and celebrities, and more. The gubernatorial candidates have been invited to share their views and to learn about what voters think regarding early childhood. The event, will take place from 1-4 p.m. at Breslin Student Event Center, One Birch Road, East Lansing. Visit www.michigansandboxparty.com for details and registration. Families with their children are strongly encouraged to attend! Clinton County Great Start Parent Coalition Sharon Arnett, Mandi Bliesener, Lisa Huckleberry, Lisa Clarizio, Maria Cook, Karen Black

Campaigning to be your state senator was a fun and exciting experience. Even though we didn’t prevail, I am proud to have won both Clinton and Isabella counties by respectable margins. Meeting, sharing thoughts and ideas with, and earning the respect of thousands of my neighbors and hard working people was a gratifying, rewarding and humbling experience. I am most proud of my campaign team. We were, at all times, professional, truthful and fact focused. It was an honor to work with scores of volunteers whose only motivation was to restore Michigan to economic prosperity and to return the people’s voice to our government. My team understood we must have

a true and courageous change in direction if we are to rebuild Michigan’s middle class and economic base. I wish Brian Calley well and encourage him to remember he is a servant of the people. I also encourage the citizens in our district to hold him to the conservative principles upon which his campaign was based. We must all continue working together in order for Michigan to survive and prosper. Michael Trebesh, St. Johns

Letters to the editor I am writing to make a heartfelt request for your support. My name is Jody Barnes. I am 41 years of age and am a life-long resident of St. Johns. I, along with the help of my wonderful sister Amy Robertson and my dear friend Kathy Campbell, am holding a benefit dinner/fundraiser with a silent auction. The funds raised by this event will go toward the medical expenses and medications that will no longer be covered by The National Kidney Foundation after my transplant surgery, scheduled for October, 2010. I am a 1987 graduate of St. Johns High School and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure plus a blood disorder in 1998, which eventually led to end stage kidney failure. My dialysis treatments began in February, 2002. I have had over 55 surgeries including two open heart surgeries. As a result of the surgeries, I have suffered two strokes, but with God’s grace there was no residual damage. Although the treatments have been helpful, the disease has left me with permanent damage; one of which is my eyesight and the other being a need for new kidney. I began working at age 15 for the Clinton County Intermediate School District. Since then I have held a number of different jobs and have eaerned my certification as an insurance service representative. In 2001 my life took a drastic change and I was forced to leave work due to illness. Despite this, my spirit would not keep me down. I looked to volunteerism to keep me going and to be a part of my wonderful community. I am currently a member of the St. Johns Lioness Club. I volunteer for the Clinton County Senior Center, Meals on Wheels and Mint Festival. I have managed to keep a bright spirit and a positive attitude. I look to my future with optimism and hope to go back to school to obtain my associates degree in medical billing and coding. I hope you will support my efforts in one or more of the following ways: • Attend my benefit luncheon • Donate an item for the silent auction • Send a financial contribution to: Jody L. Barnes, c/o Clinton County Federal Credit Union, 1200 Zeeb Dr., St. Johns, MI 48879 (in the memo line indicate “Medical”). A tax deductible contribution form is available upon request. For questions or further information, call Jody Barnes at (989) 224-4505 or Kathy Campbell at (989) 906-5928. Jody Barnes St. Johns

Government needs to let business create jobs President Obama and Gov. Jennifer Granholm recently appeared at the groundbreaking ceremony for the electric car battery plant owned by the Korean firm LG Chem in Holland. It was another presidential “dog and pony” show to tout the latest attempt at creating jobs in Michigan in this transformational age of renewable energy. The facts are the federal government is contributing $151 million in “stimulus” money, and Michigan taxpayers are paying another $100 million from our taxes as seed money to get the project started. Obama and Granholm were giving their usual stump speech about how this was going to bring about Michigan’s “economic recovery.” They didn’t bother to tell everyone that each of the 400 people the company is expected to employ will cost taxpayers $625,000. Michigan’s contribution to the subsidy will be about $250,000 per job. With this investment, and others in battery technologies in Michigan, it appears the government knows the people of our state and country are all on board for smaller vehicles. It makes you wonder if the people who are making these decisions have done their homework. Analysts state that electric vehicles will account for just 0.6 percent of total industry by 2020. This doesn’t appear that everyone is ready to jump on the electric car bandwagon. The good news is that we will have created jobs. The bad news is we are nothing more than a supplier/vendor segment to an industry that is not from this country. The question also arises about what happens when the subsidies that have been given to these companies expire? Do the jobs disappear also? What about government regulatory mandates? We need to ask ourselves is the electric and hybrid car market likely to survive? With Government Motors charging $41,000 per vehicle for the Volt, who do they think will be able to afford it, even when they are chipping in $7,500 of your money to buy it? The bottom line is the government is picking winners and losers and we have to pay for it. If battery technology were a lucrative enterprise to begin with, an entrepreneur would have jumped into the endeavor with both feet – I didn’t see any jumpers did you? It is time we get the politicians out of our pockets and let business do what they do best – create jobs! Vote for constitutional conservatives this fall. Steve Willis, Bath

Great Start - it’s for life and learning What’s all this “buzz” about GREAT START - a GREAT START to what? The answer is: life and learning! In 2004, the Great Start Initiative was launched as a movement to create public understanding that learning begins at birth. Investment in early childhood development, health, and learning is the future of Michigan’s economy. The initiative’s vision is to ensure that all Michigan children are safe, healthy and eager to succeed in school and life. The Early Childhood Investment Corporation was founded in 2005 to lead Great Start. The Great Start system consists of Collaboratives and Parent Coalitions. The lead agency for Great Start in Clinton County is Clinton County RESA (Regional Educational Service Agency). The Collaborative is directed by Karen Black and is made up of business leaders, faith-based organizations, Head Start, Early Head Start, Michigan School Readiness Program, local publicly funded health, mental health, and human service agencies and elected officials from municipal government. Its mission is to assure a coordinated system of community resources and supports to assist all our families in providing a great start for their children. The Parent Coalition is facilitated by Maria Cook and is composed of parents of children 0-12 years old, caregivers and grandparents who will inspire a fami-

ly-focused community that invests in the development and needs of all Clinton County children. Meetings occur monthly the third Tuesday of the month at the CC Educational Center in St. Johns from 6-7:30 p.m. Great Start uses a star as a symbol of all aspects of a child’s health and development. Each point of the star Great Start represents one facet of this including: family support, pediatric and family By Karen Black health, social/emotional and Maria Cook health, child care and early education, and parenting leadership. Each of these areas is taken into consideration and is the focal point of a whole and healthy child’s learning and development.

Local hospitality makes reunion a success This past Mint Festival week-end, the Class of 1955 also celebrated their 55th year reunion. It was very successful due to a good group of 42 classmates and 70 in all, but also because we held our reunion at the St. Johns Conference Center on Walker Street. Not only was the room beautifully arranged with nice dish ware and glassware, but the food was very good, hot and served by the pleasant staff of the Mint Restaurant. Thank you, Jim, and your staff for making our reunion successful. On Saturday morning, we were greeted cheerfully by

the Main Street Cafe staff and 21 of us enjoyed a good hot breakfast before some boarded our float for the Mint Festival Parade. Thank you staff and cooks. Thank you to Dave Huhn for loaning us his beautiful wagon and driving the tractor. We also want to thank Mr. Ortman for working so diligently in getting hotel rooms ready for our use, making it possible for members to stay close by in pleasant rooms. The hospitality room was prefect. A good time was had by all 70 people thanks to all of you. LaRene Smith and all the 1955 classmates

Old 27 tour to make stops in DeWitt, St. Johns By TOM THELEN tthelen@lsj.com

DEWITT — An automobile tour retracing a historic route through the state will be passing through the area at the end of the month.

Participants will be making stops at the various towns along the way. “Back in its heyday, old 27 was considered the northsouth version of Route 66,” said Craig Parrish, organizer of the Old 27 Motor Tour. “Back then you could drive from Cheboygan all the way down to Miami in Florida, and you can still drive the route down to Miami today.” Parrish got the idea for the tour after taking a trip on the route himself. “I always like traveling on back roads and seeing new places,” said Parrish. “I had heard about old 27 and debetter service to our partici- cided to take a trip.

ST. JOHNS — If you grew up watching Lassie or Rin-Tin-Tin, you are going to love this. Capital City Dog Sport Association is presenting the 12th annual Dog Sport Open protection dog tournament on Saturday, Aug. 28 and Sunday, Aug. 29, hosted by Cher Car Kennels at 4215 S. Lowell in St. Johns. The public is invited to watch this unique dog show, featuring dog and handler teams exhibiting obedience, agility and protection abilities. The tournament has three categories - beginning, intermediate and advanced - with progressively harder tasks required in each level.

Both on and off leash obedience is demonstrated while the handler works through some unusual obstacles. This year’s theme is “Roaring Twenties.” The protection scenarios also vary depending on category of entry, but start with the basic car agitation and handler protection, leading up to the elaborate advanced scenarios such as kidnapping, gangland or serial killer where the dog must protect the innocent on command and defend its handler from the worst of foes. Great fun and humor abound in this tournament, as it is always amusing to watch how each contestant encour-

ages their dog to complete tasks they may never have seen or done before. Sometimes the dogs exhibit a “mind of their own” and hammer the bad guy a little more than necessary, all to the delight of the crowd. The competition begins at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with the beginning entries. The tournament resumes on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with the intermediate and advanced entries. The advanced competitors are kept sequestered so they cannot benefit from watching other competitors perform and problem solve their way through the course. Food is available both days, and

Saturday has a doggone good raffle. Entries are open to all breeds, including mixes. Some of the competitors are seasoned veterans of multiple dog sports, and others are grandmothers competing with family companions, both large and small. Everyone is welcome. For additional information about entering the tournament, visit www.CCDSA.info , where you can also view the rules of the competition and video of previous tournaments. Come and enjoy watching this working event highlighting the protective instincts and abilities of family dogs performing their oldest job - protecting family and home. — From Cher Car Kennels

Docents honored, more docents needed LANSING — Volunteers who gave more than 700 hours of their time to the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center were recently honored by the Court as “ambassadors for the judicial branch.” The volunteer docents guide school groups and other visitors through the 3,800 square foot education center, located on the first floor of the Michigan Hall of Justice. Volunteers’ responsibilities included demonstrating interactive computer games and other hands-on activities at the center, including a virtual courtroom. Other duties included working behind the scenes on workshops and special programs. At a recent volunteer recognition event, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly, Justice Elizabeth A. Weaver, and Justice Stephen J. Markman represented the entire Court in thanking the docents for helping to educate the public about Michigan’s justice system. In expressing the Court’s appreciation, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly noted, “You have been outstanding ambassadors for the judicial branch

of government, helping young visitors and their parents and teachers understand how Michigan courts function.” Elizabeth Ayoub of St. Johns was among a small group of volunteer docents commended for leadership and continued service. Learning Center Coordinator Rachael Drenovsky said that the center relies on its volunteer docents. She encouraged new volunteers to share their time and expertise with tour groups, stressing that docents do not need a background in education, law, or government. “That kind of experience is helpful but certainly not necessary,” Drenovsky said. “What’s essential is having an interest in the law and a passion for sharing knowledge and enthusiasm with others.” Volunteers attend a series of threehour orientation sessions and commit to a minimum of eight hours per month.

ST. JOHNS — If you grew up watching Lassie or Rin-Tin-Tin, you are going to love this. Capital City Dog Sport Association is presenting the 12th annual Dog Sport Open protection dog tournament on Saturday, Aug. 28 and Sunday, Aug. 29, hosted by Cher Car Kennels at 4215 S. Lowell in St. Johns. The public is invited to watch this unique dog show, featuring dog and handler teams exhibiting obedience, agility and protection abilities. The tournament has three categories - beginning, intermediate and advanced - with progressively harder tasks required in each level.

Both on and off leash obedience is demonstrated while the handler works through some unusual obstacles. This year’s theme is “Roaring Twenties.” The protection scenarios also vary depending on category of entry, but start with the basic car agitation and handler protection, leading up to the elaborate advanced scenarios such as kidnapping, gangland or serial killer where the dog must protect the innocent on command and defend its handler from the worst of foes. Great fun and humor abound in this tournament, as it is always amusing to watch how each contestant encour-

ages their dog to complete tasks they may never have seen or done before. Sometimes the dogs exhibit a “mind of their own” and hammer the bad guy a little more than necessary, all to the delight of the crowd. The competition begins at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with the beginning entries. The tournament resumes on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. with the intermediate and advanced entries. The advanced competitors are kept sequestered so they cannot benefit from watching other competitors perform and problem solve their way through the course. Food is available both days, and

Saturday has a doggone good raffle. Entries are open to all breeds, including mixes. Some of the competitors are seasoned veterans of multiple dog sports, and others are grandmothers competing with family companions, both large and small. Everyone is welcome. For additional information about entering the tournament, visit www.CCDSA.info , where you can also view the rules of the competition and video of previous tournaments. Come and enjoy watching this working event highlighting the protective instincts and abilities of family dogs performing their oldest job - protecting family and home. — From Cher Car Kennels

Docents honored, more docents needed LANSING — Volunteers who gave more than 700 hours of their time to the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center were recently honored by the Court as “ambassadors for the judicial branch.” The volunteer docents guide school groups and other visitors through the 3,800 square foot education center, located on the first floor of the Michigan Hall of Justice. Volunteers’ responsibilities included demonstrating interactive computer games and other hands-on activities at the center, including a virtual courtroom. Other duties included working behind the scenes on workshops and special programs. At a recent volunteer recognition event, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly, Justice Elizabeth A. Weaver, and Justice Stephen J. Markman represented the entire Court in thanking the docents for helping to educate the public about Michigan’s justice system. In expressing the Court’s appreciation, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly noted, “You have been outstanding ambassadors for the judicial branch

of government, helping young visitors and their parents and teachers understand how Michigan courts function.” Elizabeth Ayoub of St. Johns was among a small group of volunteer docents commended for leadership and continued service. Learning Center Coordinator Rachael Drenovsky said that the center relies on its volunteer docents. She encouraged new volunteers to share their time and expertise with tour groups, stressing that docents do not need a background in education, law, or government. “That kind of experience is helpful but certainly not necessary,” Drenovsky said. “What’s essential is having an interest in the law and a passion for sharing knowledge and enthusiasm with others.” Volunteers attend a series of threehour orientation sessions and commit to a minimum of eight hours per month. Some positions have additional time and training commitments. The next series of volunteer orientation sessions will be offered on five consecutive Thursdays, 9 a.m. to

noon, starting Sept. 30. Classes will include information about the Michigan judicial system, the Learning Center exhibits, and tips for giving great tours.

Pertussis is on the rise; protect your children ST. JOHNS — The MidMichigan District Health Department has received numerous reports of pertussis - whooping cough - in Clinton, Gratiot and Montcalm counties, and is concerned about the risk to the community, especially since the start of school is fast approaching. Pertussis is a contagious respiratory illness that starts like a cold with a runny nose and sore throat. After seven to ten days the cold turns into a cough that gradually worsens and lasts six to 12 weeks. Pertussis is most contagious before the onset of the cough. The incidence of pertussis had declined dramatically with the introduction of

the pertussis vaccine. However, outbreaks have grown in number in recent years. Despite vaccination efforts, new cases have increased dramatically since the beginning of this year. “Whooping cough used to be a disease of infancy,” said Dr. Robert Graham, MMDHD medical director. “However, we have seen more and more cases in adolescents and adults recently,” he added. Infants are most vulnerable and are most likely to contract the illness from older siblings, parents and care givers. Children under one year of age who contract pertussis are at increased risk of developing secondary pneumonia, being hospitalized and dying of complica-

tions. Five percent of people who develop pertussis will develop a secondary case of bacterial pneumonia while 12 percent of children under the age of six months will develop bacterial pneumonia. People with a persistent cough or people living with a person with a cough should contact their family doctor. “If treated early, the duration and severity of symptoms can be reduced,” Graham noted. The best way to prevent the disease is through vaccinations. The childhood vaccine is called DTaP while the booster vaccine for adolescents and adults is called Tdap. Infants should receive the DTaP at 2, 4, and 6

• See your family doctor if you have a cold that lasts for more than one week • Stay home from work or school if you are coughing • If your doctor prescribes antibiotics, take all the medication as directed • Make sure your children are vaccinated against pertussis • Stop smoking, drink eight glasses of water a day, get eight hours of sleep, and take a multiple vitamin

months of age. A booster shot should be given between 15 and 18 months of age, and again when the child enters school, at 4 to 6 years of age. Adolescents and adults need the pertussis vaccine booster (Tdap) even if they were completely vaccinated as children. Pre-teens entering 6th grade are also required to receive one dose of Tdap if 5 years have passed since the last dose. If a teenager (13 to 18 years) missed getting the Tdap, ask their doctor about getting it now. Adults who haven’t had a Tdap should get one dose instead of their next Td (tetanus) booster.

Fowler gridders poised to kick off season By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

FOWLER - With the opening season kickoff less than a week away, Fowler interim coach Craig Koenigsknecht is working to get the team ready to lock horns with always tough Laingsburg. The Eagles host the Wolfpack Aug. 27 with a 7 p.m. start. It will be Koenigsknecht’s first time at the helm, taking over for Paul Hungerford who resigned to become principal at Fulton High School. “It will be Fowler football,” Koenigsknecht said when asked if he planned on making any major changes to the offensive and defensive schemes. Koenigsknecht is well versed in the type of “smash mouth” football that has been a tradition for the Eagles. A 1994 Fowler graduate, he played for Steve Spicer on 1993 state championship team. Koenigsknecht started practice

at 12:01 a.m. Aug. 9 under the lights of Spicer Stadium. Practice started one minute after the deadline set by the Michigan High School Athletic Association. He said the team was excited to be starting the season. “The kids have been working hard over the summer and we have a great core of coaches,” he said. “We are going to make the best of it for the kids.” The new weight-training building behind the high school was frequented by players during the summer. “We had a fairly good turnout in the weight room,” he said. “As a coach you always want more, but it was pretty fair.” Koenigsknecht already knows the kids and what to expect. He was the junior varsity coach for the past five years. He is joined by assistant coaches Tom Thelen, John Spicer and Jason Pohl.

“It will be Fowler football,” – Fowler interim coach Craig Koenigsknecht About 22 kids will be on the varsity this year, up slightly from last season. “We don’t have big numbers, but the ones we have are quality players,” he said. “There’s going to be some competition (for playing time).” The Eagles lost three seniors last year. They have seven returning starters and nine seniors on the team. Josh Schmitt is expected to be the starting quarterback. He has a big target in end Ben Halfman, a six-foot, 200-pound senior who led the league in receiving last

season. Kameron Riley is another receiver for Schmitt to find. In the backfield, Mitch Thelen and Devon Feldpausch each saw ample playing time last season. The Eagle offensive line will average about 200 pounds. Koenigsknecht will be counting on team speed and strength in all positions. With 10 teams in the CMAC, every game Fowler plays during the regular season is a league game. “Every game’s important. Our league is tough. No matter where you look or who you’re coming up against that week, it’s going to be tough,” Koenigsknecht said. He expects the Eagles to compete for the league crown. Last year the Eagles were one of five CMAC teams that qualified for the playoffs. Fowler had a 5-4 regular season record, making the playoffs without six wins because of wins over larger schools.

Raptors win AYBT state title The Mid Michigan Raptors won the Michigan American Youth Basketball (AYBT) state title and finished third in the national tournament in Fort Wayne, Ind. The AYBT is a summer, grade-based, youth basketball organization. The tour hosts 5 on 5 basketball events throughout the Midwest and east coast. The season series starts in each state where the teams compete over a series of weekends hosted by towns all over the state. The teams are seeded based on their records and the state season culminates with a single elimination tournament hosted by Central Michigan University. The Raptors had an amazing run and captured the crown with a thrilling one point win over Little Ma Powers out of Detroit. The team continued on to the National Tournament where they lost in the semi finals finishing third overall.
