Fullerton will retire this May By RACHEL GRECO

CHARLOTTE — The city’s fire department will get a new chief this May. Kevin Fullerton, who has served as chief of the Charlotte Fire Department for 23 years, plans to retire from the position this spring. According to Gregg Guetschow, his likely successor is Assistant Fire Chief/Captain Dave Brown. Brown has been assistant chief of the department for 15 years. At the Feb. 14 Charlotte City Council meeting officials unanimously supported Fullerton Brown’s appointment to the position. It is the first step in his selection. In April members of the fire department will officially vote to elect Brown as chief, he added.

Still volunteering

February 20, 2011


Fullerton said he plans to continue serving on the department, which serves the city and several outlying townships, as a volunteer after his retirement. Fullerton started as a volunteer firefighter in 1973. He took over as chief in 1988 and also serves as the head See Fullerton/page 7

Board strives to increase use of camp

Camp Frances Educational and Recreational Center


CHARLOTTE — A group of voluntary board members for Camp Frances Educational and Recreation Center have high hopes for the historical facility. Located in the center of Bennett Park and constructed in the 1920s, Camp Frances may soon be used for educational, as well as recreational purposes. Charlotte Police Chief William Callahan has been a member of the Camp Frances board for over 20 years. He said the facility’s 7-member board oversees use and care of the property on a shoe string budget. Costs associated with the building — which was once used solely by girls’ youth groups such as Camp Fire Girls and Girl Scouts and is now open to any community group or resident — are minimal. But Callahan said so is the amount collected by renters who are asked to give a donated fee of $25 to use the camp. Camp Frances also receives private donations. But heating the camp in the winter can cost between $1,200 and $1,300 a year.

Getting the word out

Board members say the time has come to help boost the facility’s use — in hopes that usage will pay for improvements to the facility. “It would be our goal to have it used more often, as much as possible,” said Callahan, of the building and it’s surrounding property. “There’s no real additional cost for people to use it. Sally Starkweather has only been on the Camp Frances board for a few months, but her connection to the property began in childhood. “It’s of interest to me two-fold,” she admitted, having camped there as a girl. “It’s rare to have something like that in a city park. I don’t think residents realize how lucky we are to have something like that inside a city park.” Currently, just six to 10 groups or families use Camp Frances on a regular basis through-

William Callahan, Charlotte’s chief of police and president/secretary of the Camp Frances Board, said the facility is an affordable, but under utilized, local meeting place. out the year — including Girl and Boy Scouts. But Starkweather said residents who contact the city looking to rent spaces for family events often aren’t even aware of Camp Frances, which offers a kitchen, indoor meeting space, a bathroom and outdoor fire pit. “I get calls all the time about renting Bennett Park and if the pavilion is taken I say, ‘You can always use Camp Frances,’ and they don’t know what I’m talking about.” Rita Skidmore’s family does though. The Charlotte family has been renting the property See Camp

Woman is found dead in Meijer parking lot CHARLOTTE — An 83-year-old Charlotte-area woman found dead in her car in a Meijer parking lot Friday died two days before she was found, according to police. Charlotte Police Chief Bill Callahan said Helen Dowker was discovered slumped over in her car about 10 a.m. Friday. He said a manager was alerted by a customer who noticed Dowker’s body. Callahan said police believe that Dowker had shopped Feb. 9 at the Charlotte Meijer, put the groceries in her car and died of natural causes after putting the key in the ignition. “She was a short woman and was very hard to see in the car,” Callahan said. “A causal observer wouldn’t see her.”

The Charlotte Police Department handled over 160 incidents the week of Feb. 7 to 13. Anyone with information regarding these cases may contact the Charlotte Police Department at (517) 543-1552. Here are just a few of those incidents: • Feb. 8 - Charlotte police responded to a domestic dispute between boyfriend and girlfriend. During the investigation, officers learned that the homeowner had a surveil-

lance system that recorded the incident. After the 29-year old male showed the video to the officers, both he and the 22-year old female were arrested for domestic assault and lodged at the Eaton County Jail. • Feb. 9 - Charlotte police responded to a report that a 22-year old pregnant female was hitting herself in the stomach. After locating the female, it was learned that she wasn’t trying to harm herself or the

• Feb. 13 - Charlotte police were called to the Charlotte High School for a possible break-in. Officers located a window that the suspects had broken and used to enter the school. Officers collected evidence from the scene and the investigation is ongoing. • Feb. 13 - Charlotte police responded to a residence for the report of an intoxicated male subject attempting to get in the house. While heading to the call, officers were advised

that the subject had kicked the door in and was now inside the house. When officers arrived they located the 41-year old intoxicated male. After speaking with the homeowner she knew the subject and did not want to press charges. Officers from the Charlotte Police Department ask that if you see or hear anything suspicious at night in your neighborhood, call and report it. — From the Charlotte Police Department

Though one year has passed, still tears in our weary eyes, We look for you every day, and in the stars in the night skies. Every day, every moment, so strange without you here, Every memory, every thought of you, we all hold so very dear. We'll all be with you again someday, though for now we remain apart. You meant the world to us and to many, you are forever in our hearts. We all take care of each other, I guess we're doing okay. Yet we miss you more and more with each long passing day. Though the pain of losing you will never ever go away, The great joy of loving you will be forever and always. We send you hugs and kisses and all of our deepest love, You are now our Guardian Angel to comfort and protect from above. You will always be the best mother, sweet Grammy and loving wife, You were a very special person, we're all lucky to have shared your life.

Our love will never fade and neither will yours.

CHARLOTTE — On Jan. 19, the non-profit organization, Mobile Meals, Inc. of Charlotte celebrated its 40th anniversary. Mobile Meals, Inc. began in 1971 as a result of a need called to the attention of General Federation of Women’s Clubs -Charlotte (GFWC-Charlotte) by Dr. B. P. Brown. The first 12 meals were delivered to Charlotte’s homebound on Jan. 19, 1971. Since then, about 240,000 hot meals have been delivered at noon to residents of the city of Charlotte who are unable to adequately care for themselves. The organization is headed by a seven-person board of directors, one of whom is always the current president of GFWC-Charlotte. Approximately 100 unpaid volunteers from the community, many of whom have been with the program since its inception, help to get the meals delivered. A reception to celebrate the 40 year milestone is being planned for later in the year. The Mobile Meals program is based on need, not age or financial criteria. The meals are prepared by Hayes Green Beach Hospital. Special diets and food preferences are accommodated. The noon meal usually includes cooked meat, poultry, or fish, potato or substitute, vegetable, salad, bread, butter, milk and dessert. In addition to the hot noon meal, a cold supper meal is available to be delivered at noon. The supper meal consists of a sandwich, salad, dessert and milk. Volunteer drivers are scheduled once a month to pick up the meals at the hospital around 11:15 a.m. and deliver the meals to the subscribers. The program operates 365 days a year.

All in attendance will be asked to bring a bowl, to stir the golden syrup into candy and of course if one wants to be really creative, they can bring nuts or items to go into their candy, this

will be theirs to take home with them. The Vermontville Historical Society opens the museum up to visitors during the Maple Syrup Festival. Volunteers are needed to assist in that project. The society is open to new members at any of their meetings. For information, call Historical Society President Phyllis Smith at (517) 726-1007. — From the Vermontville Historical Society

After many years in this business, we’re still surprised when asked, “How do you manage to continue to publish a newspaper without selling it on a subscription basis?” The answer is simple. Fact is, most of us are accustomed to the traditional daily newspaper that we pay to receive at our home or business. Lansing Community Newspapers exists on an entirely different – although not uncommon – business model. We distribute this newspaper From the to nearly every home in this area at no charge. We subsist editor almost exclusively on revenue generated through adver- Kurt Madden tising sales. Our broad delivery allows us to reach a larger audience than subscription newspapers. And our news is distinctly local; in fact, the majority of the news in this newspaper is submitted by readers like you. Simply put, lots of folks read the paper because it is rel-

evant to their lives. It’s been a successful business model, and it makes this newspaper and its 11 sister newspapers in the Lansing area a good example of how to operate free weekly newspapers. That doesn’t change the fact that publishing a newspaper today costs more than ever. Our two largest expenses are the printing and distribution of this newspaper. As we have in the past, we are promoting our voluntary pay program. This column is an effort to explain what this program is, and isn’t. The voluntary pay program allows you and other readers to make a contribution of $13 for 26 weeks or $26 for 52 weeks, and if you choose, tip your carrier an additional amount. The amount equates to 50 cents per issue. An envelope explaining the program is inserted in this issue. We won’t gloss over two key issues: • Yes, the money raised through the program makes a difference, assists us in keeping advertising costs lower and makes it easier to continue to operate the paper at an acceptable profit.

• This program is voluntary. If you enjoy the newspaper, or a component of the newspaper, and if you experience good, consistent delivery of the newspaper, we hope you participate. However, if you have delivery problems, or for any other reason are unhappy with the newspaper, we ask you to do two things. First, don’t participate in the program. Second, call us and give us a chance to solve your delivery problem or gain an understanding of what kind of local information would interest you Finally, understand that delivery of this newspaper to you is not contingent on this program. You will continue to receive your newspaper regardless of whether you choose to participate in this program. Thank you for your continued support of this newspaper. We are successful because of the support of you, our readers and advertisers. If you have any questions, or concerns regarding the voluntary pay program, please call 1-866-226-1812. Kurt Madden is the group editor for Lansing Community Newspapers.

Charlotte boys drop 3 games, fall to 7-9, 3-5 By SCOTT YOSHONIS

CHARLOTTE - Charlotte has fallen to 7-9 overall and 3-2 in CAAC Gold boys’ basketball play in a brutal stretch of three games in five days. First, Haslett clinched the outright CAAC Gold boys’ basketball championship with a 63-59 win over Charlotte on Feb. 11, but the Orioles didn’t make it easy for them. Charlotte coach Jake Briney said that the Vikings are worthy conference champions. “They’re extremely wellcoached and a well-balanced team,” Briney said. “They did a lot of things well.” Bret Thomas led the Orioles with 19 points, including two threes in the final 45 seconds, but the Vikings hung on for the win. Blake Rankin scored 18 and Aubrey Parrish added 11. Zach Parker led the Vikings with 14 points, including a coast-to-coast bucket that gave Haslett their biggest lead of the game, 51-39 with 6:08 left in the game. That would be the only Viking field goal of the fourth quarter, however, and the Orioles climbed back into the game from there, going on a 9-0 run to close the gap to just three points with 2:46 left. Haslett managed to keep Charlotte at bay, but just barely, from the free-throw

line, beginning with Joe Varlesi converting all six free throws on his team’s next three possessions. In all, Haslett scored 18 of their 20 fourth-quarter points from 24 trips to the charity stripe. “We wanted to get that (the outright title) done as quickly as possible,” said Haslett coach Rob Porritt. “The kids are really focused on getting through the league schedule unscathed.” While not characterizing it as a “moral victory,” Briney pointed out that his Orioles have come a long way from the first meeting between the two teams this year, an 82-54 Haslett rout on Jan. 7. “Our kids have made a lot of progress,” he said. “I’m so proud of our kids. Hats off to Haslett, but we’re walking out of here with our head held high.” The Orioles then had two games on two successive days against CAAC White teams, Williamston and Lan-

sing Catholic, who went into the games with a combined record of 25-4. Rankin again led Charlotte with 21 points against the Hornets, including a dramatic 3-pointer at the fourthquarter buzzer to send the game into overtime, but the Orioles fell in a heartbreaker, 68-57 on Feb. 15. Fatigue then appeared to catch up with the Orioles the next day, when they traveled to Lansing Catholic to take on the 10th-ranked Cougars, and fell 60-41. Parrish led the way for the Orioles with 12 points in the game, which began with Lansing Catholic outscoring Charlotte 21-10 in the first quarter. The Orioles will have two home games this week, beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 22 when they host yet another CAAC White team, Lakewood, before getting back into league play against Fowlerville on Friday, Feb. 25.
