Plan in place for aquatic center Rachel Greco

CHARLOTTE — This Monday, Aug. 15, the Board of Education will vote on whether or not to ask voters in November for a millage to support the Charlotte Aquatic Center. If the .5 mill proposal makes it on the ballot this fall, Charlotte Schools Superintendent Nancy Hipskind said school officials and pool supporters have their work cut out for them. The measure, if approved, would supplement operations at the center — opened in 2004 and still being paid for by taxpayer dollars — for just five years. After that, supporters of the center will have needed to implement a “marketing plan” developed to help the facility grow its user base and to help it pay for itself.

August 14, 2011

Growing use Adam Jones is the aquatic center supervisor and was a member of the 14-member marketing committee charged with creating a plan to help the facility become more self-sustaining. Jones said the key to getting there exists now. “It’s going to be a tough road, just like anything,” he said. “But if we attack it the

right way, this plan will work.” The aquatic center’s annual budget is between $300,000 and $350,000. Student use accounts for anywhere between $70,000 and $100,000 of that. Hipskind said that leaves over $200,000 a year that officials are hoping the center can generate itself after five years. During its busiest months, in the winter, the center sees an average of 1,300 visitors. Hipskind believes that number needs to climb to an average of 2,000 per month all year long. “When we say we have people there, yes we do but we don’t have enough people there,” she said. “We don’t have enough people in any age group.” The center’s marketing plan aims to offer more attractions for recreational activity — both for kids and adults. Just a week ago the staff debuted its new $10,000 wibit. Three-fourths of the cost for the giant inflatable toy/obstacle course was paid for with a private donation. Jones said it is just the beginning of offering pool goers more to do at the facility — beyond swimming laps and swimming See PLAN, Page 6

AL!VE project taking shape Rachel Greco


CHARLOTTE — Patrick Sustrich can walk you around the dusty, busy AL!VE property and point out the key areas as they are taking shape. Sustrich is the future director of the project, Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital’s visionary “wellness hub” — that will offer everything from women’s health services to an indoor walking path and health-food cafe. In its first phase AL!VE will be a 45,000 square feet endeavor at the former Felpausch location off Lawrence Avenue. It’s price tag of $12.6 million is just the beginning. The hospital raised $10 million to get the concept off the ground and fund raising has thus far generated $2.7 million. Hospital officials need to raise a total of $4 million before AL!IVE’s second phase can begin. That will include a conference center and children’s programming and child care. The facility is tentatively scheduled to open in late October. Sustrich said a community open house is being planned for Oct. 23. In three months a lot will have to happen.

Big plans “There will be something for everyone,” said Sustrich, who stresses that the project is a whole lot

Hayes Green Beach Health and Wellness Director Patrick Sustrich, the future director of AL!VE, walks the facility site, now under construction, as he points out progress being made there. RACHEL GRECO\LCN more than an extension of the hospital’s Health and Wellness Center. “Anything that makes you feel alive counts. Coming to an outdoor courtyard and de stressing after work is just as fundamental to health as working out is.” When AL!IVE opens this fall it will offer two outdoor courtyards, a multi-purpose gym, physical and occupational therapy, women’s services and a demonstration kitchen — alone with fitness and education programs. It will also include a staff of about 35 people. “For the most part construction is on schedule,” explained Sustrich, and although recent heavy

rains presented a challenge to construction crews all the buildings dry wall is up and brick work on site is nearly done. In the next few weeks construction crews will install all the glass, enclosing the building and clearing the way for the installation of equipment, carpeting and furniture throughout the building.

Collaboration When it’s doors are open Sustrich said HGB hopes every Charlotte area resident takes advantage of what AL!VE will offer. “We’ve set a goal of 8,000 visits a month,” he explained. In order to make that

happen, Sustrich said working with the community — including the city government, school district and civic groups — is a must. “The whole project is built upon community collaboration,” said Sustrich. “That’s one of our guiding principals.” Those in the community are following suit, showing support for AL!VE. Just last month the Charlotte City Council voted to waive building inspection fees for the hospital project, so far totaling $35,000, in exchange for using a small portion of the AL!VE property for See AL!VE, Page 6

Master Teacher Roberta Otten will be offering Movement For Actors Workshops the end of August, just in time for all those students preparing to audition for their school musicals.

CHARLOTTE — With over 3,457 members in Eaton County, local Farm Bureau members will set their 2012 policy agenda during the organization’s annual meeting, 5:30 p.m., Aug. 25 at Kardel Hall, Eaton County Fairgrounds. Land owners and farmers will discuss, debate and approve policies that will allow Eaton County’s agricultural industry to continue to grow and add jobs while also being mindful stewards of our county’s natural resources. This year’s menu will feature all locally grown food. Homegrown pork, sweet corn, maple syrup, salad greens, honey, cheese, bread and apple cider are among some of the menu items all produced by Eaton County Farmers. Attendees are also invited to make their favorite homemade dessert for the annual dessert contest. The Eaton County Farm Bureau Policy Development Committee, chaired by Ben Tirrell of Charlotte, will recommend local, state and national policies. Approved state and national policies will be forwarded to the Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB) Policy

Development Committee, comprised of county Farm Bureau members representing specific districts. The state-level committee will consolidate county recommendations and present the policies to the delegation at MFB’s 2011 annual meeting in December. Local Farm Bureau members will also elect directors to the county board at the meeting. Other activities on tap for this year’s annual meeting include the presentations of the Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award, Volunteer of the Year Award, and Promoter of the Year Award. The Eaton County Farm Bureau is a grass-roots, membership organization dedicated to supporting the local farmers and the agriculture industry in the county. A $5 donation for dinner is suggested to help cover the cost of the banquet. Eaton County Farm bureau members can RSVP by Aug. 18 to the Eaton County Farm Bureau Office at (517) 543-5567. All Eaton County residents are eligible to become members. For more information visit counties/index/23.

Synder signs bill introduced by Shaughnessy CHARLOTTE — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder recently signed into law a bill introduced by state Rep. Deb Shaughnessy helping school districts save taxpayer money. “I am pleased that my first bill signed into law will help save valuable taxpayer dollars, allowing more money to be spent directly on students,” said Shaughnessy, R-Charlotte. “School districts are

facing difficult budget decisions much like families across Michigan. This new law is an important step to give schools the ability to deal with our current economic realities. It will also allow school employees to make more informed decisions regarding their health care.” House Bill 4700 requires local school districts to be the policy holder or have

access to specific claims data before entering into a health insurance contract. If the district is not the direct policy holder, they can request access to specific data about how the plan was used. Steps were taken to insure the privacy and confidentiality of district employees. — From the Michigan House of Representatives

CPAC summer musical camp draws big response CHARLOTTE — Over 50 students engaged themselves in song, dance and dramatic performance during the recent Summer Musical Theatre Camp presented at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center. Judging from the response of over 350 audience members who attended the performance on the last day of the camp, the camp was an overwhelming success. Students participating in the camp enjoyed an exciting theatrical experience that included instruction in how to audition, choreography, music direction and exposure to award-winning musicals. The two-week camp culminated in a final performance of skits, musical numbers and a special production of “Disney’s Jungle Book Kids.” The Broadway Kids participants, who were in grades two through five, learned about the different aspects of putting together a musical. They spent most of their time preparing to perform “Disney’s Jungle Book Kids,” which was no easy task. Auditions were held on

the first day of camp with parts assigned and every day they worked on a different part of the show. Many of the participants had lines to memorize and all had songs and dances to learn. The Broadway Teens participants, who were in grades six through 10, had a different camp experience. Their days consisted in part of “scene work” which involved learning various songs from musicals (“Les Miserables,” “The Sound of Music,” “Guys & Dolls” and “The Producers,” to name a few) and preparing to act, sing, and dance them during the final performance. The pieces that were selected consisted of solos, duets, and group songs that showcased the many talents within the Broadway Teens group. Since the first camp in 2007, attendance has grown each year and the reaction from campers and parents has been extremely positive. Numerous parents commented that their children were demonstrating lessons learned at camp while at home, and were already looking forward to next

year’s theater camp experience. Camp co-directors Hollie Auten and Amanda Smith and assistant director Sarah Shoemaker were very pleased with the outcome of the camp. “We learned many things from this year’s camp experience that we will attempt to incorporate into future

camps,” says Auten. “The overwhelming amount of positive feedback we have received from campers and parents has been amazing! We hope to continue this tradition for many years to come!” Along with Auten, Smith and Shoemaker, the camp was facilitated by student counselors Emma Bau,

Cecilia Corbin, Cam, Chris, and Casey Eldridge, Marissa Gonzales, Madie Forell, Josh Holliday, Nicole Peters, Stephanie Shaffer, Emily Smith, Dale White, Matthias Struble and Kelsey Venton. Production assistance was provided by Alex Dartt, Elizabeth Florian and Gavin Smith. A special thanks is given

to GFWC-Charlotte and the Charlotte Kiwanis Club for providing financial support for the six scholarships which were awarded to Charlotte students. Information on the 2012 Summer Musical Theatre Camp will be announced in late spring 2012. — From the Charlotte Performing Arts Center

Watch out for animals in the heat Darell D. Vroman GUEST COLUMN Karen Hinkle manifest themselves only during times of stress, like increased heat. Recently there was some attention drawn to a syndrome of scalding in animals. Apparently in an attempt to cool their pets off, owners would douse their pets in water from the hose. On hot days, water in the hose can be intensely hot when first turned on and can cause severe burns! So be sure and let the water run out if the hose has been sitting in the sun for a while. Be sure to have lots of water available to your pet.

NEWS BRIEF Dems to host golf outing Aug. 20 Eaton County Democrats are hosting a golf outing the morning of Aug. 20 at Ledge Meadows Golf Course, Grand Ledge. A few openings are left; e-mail or call (517) 881-5915 to sign up. Cost: Individuals, $60; teams, $240. Skins, mulligans, 50/50 and prizes include $5,000 for hole-in-one.

It is easy to forget when playing outside, that the regular sources of water your pet depends on are all inside. If your pet must be outside monitor them frequently and make sure they have access to food and shade all day long. Remember, shade moves throughout the day and sometimes out of range for some poor animals. If it is over 100 in air temperatures it is really best to bring your pet inside with you. Just like humans, pets with allergies, respiratory disease or natural inclination to respiratory distress including bulldogs pugs and boston terriers all need special attention during excess heat. The very young and very old should be monitored for distress. They should only go out in early cool or late evening strolls. White animals are at higher risk for skin cancers especially around the eyes and nose so dab a bit of suntan lotion on pets that is label safe whenever going out in the sun. A good idea is, if you use sunscreen yourself; apply it to your dog

as well. Some dogs, especially white pattern short haired dogs including pitbulls, have an inherited allergic reaction to the sun. Those pets should stay out of the sun as much as possible. This is unfortunate because they tend to be sun worshippers! Signs of heat stress include excess panting, confusion, weakness, rapid heartbeat, high fever and ultimately, collapse. If you see any of these signs you should apply cool but not cold compresses to the pet’s body and transport them to the veterinarian. There are measures that should be taken to prevent further damage from the heat created in the body. If you just see to a few preventative tasks then you and your pet can have a safe and fun time this summer. Karen Hinkle is from Town and Country Animal Hospital.

Charlotte Shopping Guide

We are in the midst of the summer heat and need to remember to watch out for our pets as well as ourselves. It seems like everyone should know by now but, do not leave your pet in the car, even with the windows open the temperatures can reach a dangerous level in minutes on a reasonably warm day too. The primary way that our dogs and cats get rid of excess heat is to pant. Panting decreases the core body temperature. The body’s cooling system is less effective on humid days or when the animal is in an enclosed space. When a cat pants for long periods of time, this can indicate heart or lung changes that will
