Thieves hit St. Johns business By SUE LOUNDS

The standing ovation lasted for several minutes Nov. 24 when Spc. Matt Hayes entered St. Johns Middle School gymnasium. St. Johns students raised money to help Hayes who was seriously wounded in Afghanistan Sept. 17.

A hero’s reception

By SUE LOUNDS slounds@lsj.com

ST. JOHNS – Army Spc. Matt Hayes received a hero’s welcome at St. Johns Middle School Nov. 24. An assembly at the school was a complete surprise to Hayes who was home on leave and thought he was going to the school to pick up some cards students had made for him. St. Johns Middle School students and staff filled the gymnasium, but they weren’t the only ones present. Matt’s wife Anna and their 20-monthold daughter Lilie were there, as were his dad Kevin Hayes and much of his extended family. And several military veterans from St. Johns came to show their respect and to personally say thanks to the young hero. “One of my proudest moments being a middle school teacher came during this assembly,” said Carole Mitchell, seventh-grade social studies

teacher. “The enthusiasm, spontaneity and respect the students displayed for someone they didn’t know was unbelievable. It truly came from their hearts.” Sept. 17, Hayes was seriously injured in Afghanistan. He lost his right leg below the knee and required extensive skin grafts on his left leg. He faces months of rehabilitation. He has been at Walter Reed Medical Army Center in Washington, D.C. for weeks, but he was granted an unexpected five-day leave, making it possible for him to come home for Thanksgiving. Spc. Hayes is a 2007 graduate of St. Johns High School. He was serving with the 10th Mountain Division at the time of his injury. In 2008 he served a tour in Iraq as well. In addition to their thanks and applause and a special banner they had created for Hayes, the students presented him and his family with mon-

ey they had raised to help them with expenses.

Coin challenge

During the week of Nov. 8-12, St. Johns Middle School held a coin challenge. There was a canister for each of the three grades and students could drop in donations. The eighth grade collected the most money/donations and earned braggin rights and ice cream sandwiches, but that wasn’t their motivation. Students were so motivated to help Hayes, some of them found other ways to raise additional money. Wendy Smith’s classes had auctions. Students donated items for the auctions – everything from candy and baked goods to candles, T-shirts to handmade jewelry, funny hats, a skateboard and more. See

ST. JOHNS — Mike’s Power Equipment on North Whittemore St. (BR-127) in St. Johns was the victim of a breaking and entering sometime between Sunday, afternoon Nov. 21 and Monday, morning Nov. 22. “I left here about 1 p.m. Sunday and everything was here,” said Mike French, business owner. When French arrived at the store Monday morning, he first noticed that his trailer with two mowers on it was missing. Then he realized the door was damaged and much of his inventory was missing too. “They broke the handle on one door and the door casing on the other,” said French. About $17,000 in merchandise was stolen and about $1,000 damage was done to the building, according to Michael Madden, St. Johns Police Chief. The list of items stolen includes a 1999 16-foot load trailer, a Toro zero-turn mower (customer property), Toro Time Cutter Z (customer property), Quiet RV 3000-watt generator (customer property), six Redmax chain saws, seven Dol Mar chain saws, two Dol Mar leaf blowers and 15 Toro snowblowers. French said the thieves did not touch any cash or computers in the store. “They didn’t destroy anything except the doors,” he

said. Mike’s Power Equipment has been open for less than a year, and such a loss could be devastating to a new business. Fortunately, French says he has insurance to cover the losses. “This is not the norm for our community,” said Madden. “We are investigating this with the utmost priority.” Madden said breaking and enterings are a rarity in

“We are investigating this with the utmost priority.” – Michael Madden, St. Johns Police Chief St. Johns. “We’ve only had one other business break-in in the past year,” said Madden. “We believe they may have been targeted. Whether it be a local or a state-wide ring is part of our investigation. We have put out a bulletin state wide on this specific breaking and entering.” Madden said St. Johns Police would like to hear from anyone who might have information related to this incident. Call the department at (989) 224-6721 with any information.

Council offering incentives to Art Gallery shoppers ST. JOHNS – From the White House to the Statehouse, the buzzwords are “stimulus” and “incentive” and Clinton County Arts Council has picked up the theme for shoppers at the Art Gallery. Beginning Dec. 6, those making purchases at the Gallery will have their name eligible for entry in a drawing for a top gift of a $100 gift certificate. Participation in the drawing is reliant upon the amount of purchase beginning with one entry for every $10 spent. Mike Meuhlenbeck, council director, explained the process by example. “If a customer spends $20,” he said, “that customer would be eligible for two entries. Then, an

additional entry would be awarded for every other $10 spent.” According to Meuhlenbeck, the shopping period for this event will extend from Dec. 6 until the end of business Dec. 21 when the drawing will occur. Along with the first prize gift certificate, three other prizes will be awarded. Holiday hours at the Gallery are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Gallery is closed on Mondays. Additional information on this event and other details of Gallery operations may be secured by calling (989) 224-2429. – From Clinton County Arts Council

ST. JOHNS – Sunday, Dec. 12, the Crosby Mint Farm will open its gates to the public for a holiday event for the entire family. The goal is to raise $4,000 for America’s poverty stricken backyard - the Cheyenne-Arapaho Reservation in Oklahoma. Carol Schafer Redbird, a former resident of St. Johns, moved to the reservation in 2002 with her husband. “Last winter, three tornados went through town and knocked out the power. The Cheyenne/Arapaho tribe here in Oklahoma is in financial distress,” wrote Redbird in an email. “My husband was Santa for the tribe and we traveled all over the reservation. There were very few toys to give the kids and some got nothing … a lot of kids live with their grandparents and the grandparents are on social security. On the worst parts of

the reservation, the kids have no shoes and coats. I have seen 2-year-olds last year in winter with just a diaper on. It broke my heart. These kids’ faces just lit up to see Santa last year.” The Crosbys took the chance to give back to a community in need after they received so much support and help themselves during a time the farm was in distress. Everybody’s invited to the farm fund-raising event between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to drop off monetary donations, goods, gently used and clean winter clothes, shoes, toys, or gifts. All donations are much appreciated and are tax exempt. The mint store will be decked out mint store and 5 percent of all sales that day will be donated to the CheyenneArapaho Tribe. There will be activities for young and old to enjoy: bonfire, marshmallows, hot cocoa, music, lights,

Lights of Love campaign is now underway CARSON CITY — With the holiday season already here, the Carson City Hospital Auxiliary announces that its 24th annual Lights of Love campaign is currently underway. “Lights of Love is a wonderful way we can remember not only those special people who have passed away, but also those special people who touch our lives every day,” said CCHA member Donna June Crumbaugh. “Donations can be made in honor of parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, military personnel, special teachers, friends, doctors, or any other person you believe would appreciate a kind thought during this celebrated time of year.” Donation amounts begin at $10. Again this year, the CCHA has placed its dramatic, 16-foot Christmas tree in the front lobby of the hospital, where the donated lights will be showcased. All donations will go toward various projects and requests for special items the CCHA receives to improve care for patients. According to Crumbaugh, contributions from previous Lights of Love cam-

paigns have totaled almost $60,000. “These wonderful donations have all been used to benefit Carson City Hospital and all those served by it,” she said. On Monday, Dec. 20, the annual Lights of Love ceremony will be held in the hospital lobby at 6:30 p.m. Events will include the candlelight dedication ceremony and refreshments. The community is invited. To participate in the campaign and recognize a special individual in your life, donation envelopes are available at several of the Carson City Hospital clinics and departments. If you have any questions about the Lights of Love campaign, contact Paula Wiles at (989) 981-6682. To send donations by mail, make your check payable to “Carson City Hospital” and mail to: Donna June Crumbaugh, 6470 S. Blair Rd., Ashley, MI 48806.

Students paid high prices for many of the items. For example, in one class a 24-ounce pop sold for $8. A theater-size box of Skittles sold for $12.75. A container of cookies sold for $15 in one class and $20 in another. “What was most impressive was their interest in doing something good for somebody,” said Smith. “When someone commented they could buy several of the items at the store for that price, they always spoke about the real reason they were doing it. The eighth graders showed how much they care.” Two seventh-grade students found another way to chip in. Aidan Pope and Ivan Leikert have an alternative/rock band they call I Love Robots. The boys held a benefit dance and raised $35 for Hayes. Hayes was presented with a check from the middle school for $1,225, but there is more money coming in, according to Jennifer Olmsted Smith, one of the organizers of the fundraiser and assembly. And St. Johns High School made a sizeable contribution too. The Good Wins Key Club at the high school held a one-day fundraising event on Veterans Day and raised more than $700. Students wore red, white and blue and decorated classroom doors to

raise money. They also painted the spirit rock outside the gymnasium red, white and blue to show their patriotism. “Our students are very patriotic and appreciative of our veterans,” said Kari SimonPieters, Good Wins advisor. “The students are just never given a chance to show their American pride. Matt has inspired Good Wins volunteers to give students an opportunity to celebrate their veterans, show their thanks and reflect on the sacrifices soldiers and their families make every day.”

Last-minute idea

The assembly was a last-minute idea that came together because of the cooperative efforts of everyone at the middle school, and some helpful folks outside the school as well. “Custodians dropped everything to get the gym ready,” said Olmsted Smith. “Teachers chipped in too, and not only was it the day before Thanksgiving break, but the last day of the trimester too.” Citizens Bank assisted in counting all of the donations, two-thirds of which was change. Jared Fromson, middle school art teacher, made a large card which most of the students signed. Many students made their own cards tool. Bruce DeLong of Michigan Graphics and

Bruce DeLong of Michigan Signs and Graphics created this banner to express the gratitude of St. Johns Middle School and all of St. Johns for the sacrifices made by Spc. Matt Hayes, a 2007 graduate of St. Johns high School. Signs made and donated two beautiful banners. Hayes was too emotional to speak, but his dad expressed the gratitude of the entire family. “This exemplifies what a fine community we have,” said Kevin Hayes. “This wouldn’t happen everywhere.” Kevin Hayes said he is very proud of his son and the huge sacrifice he has made. “But to see this kind of reception, it’s very moving,” said Kevin Hayes.

He also spoke of other service men and women. “We don’t want to forget those families who have received the knock on the door,” said Kevin Hayes, “and Matt reminds us not to forget the soldiers who are still over there and in harm’s way every day.” Although checks have already been presented to Hayes, the middle school will continue to accept donations until Dec. 15. Whatever they have collected by that date will be sent to Hayes in time for Christmas.

In Memory of a Special Grandson Conner Whitford December 21, 1991 - December 5, 2008 It’s been two years since you left us grandson, your passing was so sudden, no warning we’d had. We mourn your departing, we cannot understand why, but you slipped away quickly without even a goodbye. In a low whisper, on that special day God said, “Come’’ and he took you away. How we all miss you, no word can ever spell, how we long for your face no voice can tell. There’s a vacant chair, where you sat in the past, there’s a longing dear grandson for your firm handclasp. You were a part of our lives, you helped at our call, you were so true, and kind, and good to us all. God took you away to a land that is fair, we know that some day we will meet you there. But the days seem so long, and yet as we weep, we know that you are happy there in his keep.

EAST LANSING, MI | Some things in life have easy solutions. Hungry? Eat. Tired? Sleep. Bored? Gosh, who could be bored?! Lose something? …Now that can be tougher. Any kind of loss can cause frustration, or regret, or pain. But some types of loss impact our lives profoundly--like the loss of a loved one, the loss of your health, or the loss of one of your senses-your hearing, for instance. With the holiday season approaching, why not do something about that loss? Consider it a holiday gift to yourself. Imagine hearing your children, grandchildren, or great grandchildren without constantly asking them to repeat something. Think about hearing the sounds of the holidays again—the oven timer when the cookies or turkey are done, the carolers at the door, TV specials, and don’t forget the wonderful sounds of holiday music! 2<9 :57G =F& <95E=A; ?BFF 75A 69 8=:,7H?G to face.

LaBar finished fourth in her preliminary-round heat, but with fast times turned in by other swimmers, she did not advance to the final round.

OKEMOS - St. Johns junior Jordyn Nurenberg scored 19 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead the Redwings to a 52-43 win over nonleague Okemos in the season opener Nov. 30. “It was awesome to win our first game,” Nurenberg said. “We are young; we only have one senior on the team, so we were all a little nervous. We have a lot of firsttime varsity players.” The Redwings have nine juniors and two exchange students on the team. Okemos took a 10-4 lead before St. Johns went on an 11-2 run to go up by three early in the second quarter. During the run, Skylar Hebert and Nurenberg each turned

St. Johns continued to pull away in the second quarter, going up 20-13 on a rebound and putback by Alex Hallenbeck. Trailing by 11 points late in the first half, Okemos junior Emily Wesley hit a threepointer to cut the Redwing lead to 29-21. “We’re happy to get a win in this building; we haven’t won here in quite a while,” St. Johns coach Mark Lasceski said. Lasceski said they focused on the Chieftains Hannah Hoffman, a 6-foot 3-inch senior with a hoops scholarship to Ferris. “We felt if we could shut her down we had a good chance to get the win,” Lasceski said. Hoffman, who sat out most of the second quarter with two fouls, scored nine points. A two-pointer by Mikayla Silm midway through the

St. Johns lead to 46-40 with two minutes left. A two-pointer by Hall pulled the Chieftains to within five points with 38 seconds left, but Okemos would get no closer. Nurenberg and Silm scored the Redwings last four points of the game from the free-throw line. “I was proud of the way we competed throughout the whole game,” Okemos coach Tyler Hursey said. “We hung in there when some of our shots weren’t falling. Free throws were the big difference tonight; they knocked down theirs and we didn’t shoot very well from the line.” The Redwings hit 18 of 28 free throws. Okemos hit 10 of 23. Herbert scored 11 points for St. Johns, hitting 9-of-12 free throws. Hallenbeck had 10 points and six rebounds. Hall led the Chieftains with 14 points.

DUPLAIN TWP. – Nov. 17, eighth graders at Ovid-Elsie Middle School participated in the Reality Store. The Reality Store is a program developed by Business and Professional Women. Clinton

County RESA purchased the program, and Margo Hazleman, CCRESA career prep coordinator, helped to organize this event. The Reality Store was set up in the middle school gym-

nasium, consisting of fifteen different booths. Examples of booths included banking, housing, utilities, transportation, food, childcare, insurance, clothing, personal care, medical/dental, reality check,

and travel/ entertainment. It is designed to help students understand what things need to be provided for as they become adults and earn a paycheck. Prior to visiting the Reality Store, students learned in math class about keeping a checkbook register and deposits and withdrawals. In addition, the OEMS counselor, Michele Martin, worked with them in their language arts classes. There, they chose an occupation of interest to them. They also had to randomly draw to find

out if they were married and how many children they had. As they entered the Reality Store, they found out their monthly salaries and paid their taxes before making their way around to the rest of the booths. Students learned first hand how quickly the money is spent as they tried to live a certain lifestyle with a fixed amount of money. This event could not have been possible without the assistance of many local community volunteers to work at the booths. Much appreciation goes to

the following volunteers: Lyle and Mary Howard, Jerry and Lois Boone, Tom and Mary Hughey, Margo Martin, Jennie Martin, RoseMarie Thering, Larry and Coralee Ott, Janice Kelley, Jan Pearson, Van Reid, Karen Riegle, Margaret Colavecchi, Shirley Austin, Tara Hengesbach and Marcus LeGrand. Additional help was provided by high school students in the Corporate Services class, including Bryant Goodrich, Ashley Wilson and Amanda Mitchell. – From Ovid-Elsie Middle School

Bath artist opens studio to public Dec. 9-12 Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen, of Bath, has illustrated 27 children’s books. But he confesses that working on his newest release was a big challenge. “This was a tough one,” said van Frankenhuyzen of his newest children’s book, S is for Smithsonian: America’s Museum Alphabet. “Last summer during one of Washington D.C.’s hottest summers on record, I spent three days traveling to all the museums gathering material for this book. “After I finished all the paintings, my publisher got word that quite a few of the images I painted were protected by copyright, so I had to start from scratch on several of the paintings. It was a big headache, but the final book turned out great.” It appears the public thinks so too because in just a year’s time, the first edition has sold out and is already in its second printing. The children’s book he and his wife Robbyn Smith

did together, Itsy Bitsy and Teeny Weeny, won the 2010 Mom’s Choice Gold Award. “We are pretty proud of this award. Lots of people have been telling us it is their favorite from our Hazel Ridge serie,” said Smith. The Hazel Ridge series is true stories taken from their 25 years of wildlife rehabilitation. Their 40–acre Bath farm has been a creative inspiration for their books and paintings. As stewards of the land, they have decided to put the land into a conservation easement. “This is just a small thing, but it will keep our land green and undeveloped forever.” The van Frankenhuyzens will be hosting the annual holiday open house at their farm in Bath. It is the only time of the year his studio is open to the public. Originals, print and books will be available for purchase. “My family visits the Hazel Ridge Farm open house

every year. What a wonderful holiday experience. The natural surroundings were peaceful. The art was beautiful and the van Frankehuyzen family treated us like long lost friends,” says Gail Lundstrum who traveled from Lake Odessa to attend. “I will be looking forward to a return visit this year.” Open House dates are Dec. 9–12. After work hours are Thursday and Friday, Dec. 9-10 from 4 – 6:30 p.m. The weekend gala is Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 11-12 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The gallery is at the farm, 7409 Clark Rd. Bath. For more information, call (517) 641-6690 or visit the web site at www.hazelridgefarm.com – From Robbyn Smith

Ferguson is family nurse practitioner in Carson CARSON CITY — A Family Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse who has received special training and can perform many of the duties of a physician. That means newly certified Lisa Ferguson, FNP, can now help serve many of the same patients her husband and office partner, Tom Ferguson, DO, serves. Dr. Ferguson has been a family physician and a part of the medical community in the Carson City area for decades. “My lifelong dream has been to practice medicine professionally,” said Lisa, who graduated from Michigan State University this spring with a master’s degree in nursing. “I love every aspect of what I do – from the beginning of life to the last stages of life – we take care of our patients.” Lisa works with her husband in their independent, family medical practice located at 221 E. Maple St. in Carson City, which she said is very convenient for patients who need to merely cross the street for diagnostic and other services at Carson City Hospital. Before she began working with him

there in 2002, she was a staff nurse in the Carson City Hospital Pain Clinic, as well as a long-time charge nurse on the Medical Surgical Unit there. Lisa said her years of schooling meant she often Ferguson had to miss out on the school and sports events of her three children – now 15, 20 and 26 years

old. She said the patience of her husband, and his skill as a doctor, helped her achieve her success. Dr. and Lisa Ferguson are accepting new patients at their Carson City location. The office is open Monday through Wednesday and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make an appointment, call (989) 584-3153.
