Schools may put bond back on Nov. ballot By RACHEL GRECO

CHARLOTTE — The same $23.6 million school bond proposal that failed by just 88 votes in May could greet voters on the November ballot. According to Charlotte Public Schools Superintendant Nancy Hipskind, the district’s Board of Education will vote on placing the millage back on the ballot Aug. 23. “It’s basically the same project,” said Hipskind, of the proposal that Charlotte voters may be deciding again. The measure, if it moves forward, would not raise the school tax rate of 7.59 mills, but would extended the current bond payoff by 11 years to 2040. It, in turn, would pay for improvements to the existing facilities — including an aging heating system at the high school — and safety upgrades.

Interest-rate reduction? Hipskind said officials will vote on whether or not to try for the funding again this fall — because if it passes they could secure federal stimulus monies that would reduce interest rates on the loan by at least one-third.

“This is kind of a one-shot opportunity for us,” explained Hipskind. Officials say the stimulus money is available through Dec. 31 of this year. If secured for the bond, it would save tax payers a minimum of $16 million in interest, said Don Sovey, the district’s associate superintendent for business. “This is our last opportunity before the Dec. 31 deadline,” added Hipskind.

Needs still exist Charlotte’s Board of Education is set to vote on including the bond on the November ballot at its Aug. 23 meeting. But school officials are already moving ahead with plans to host four focus groups at the end of the month with parents and residents. Hipskind said it’s an attempt to increase communication with the community about the district’s needs and to gain their feedback on those. “We are looking to get citizen input,” she explained. “Obviously, we just lost the last bond by 88 votes. This is very important to the future of the district.” Important, she says, because See Bond/page 6

Votes come with pricetag, some high, some low By ALAN MILLER

August 15, 2010

CHARLOTTE — For the Aug. 3 primary race in Eaton County, nine candidates seeking to replace term-limited Rick Jones as 71st District State Rep spent an average of $6.28 for each vote cast in the race.

The spending varied considerably among the nine, and the results do not necessarily confirm that more spending equals more votes. But they do not totally refute that proposition, either. The winner of the Republican nomination, former Charlotte Mayor Deb Shaughnessy, was the highest spending candidate, reporting

total expenditures of $36,910 to the Secretary of State’s office, for an average cost of $6.47 for each of her 5,702 votes. The Democratic nominee, County Commissioner Theresa Abed, reported spending only $2,559, the lowest of any candidate in either party, an average cost of only $1.35 for each of her

1,900 votes. The most expensive votes were those cast for second place Democratic finisher Fred Fry, whose spending of $17,615 works out to slightly more than $11 for each of his 1,601 votes. Second place Republican vote getter Cheryl Haddock was close behind Fry for costly votes. She re-

ported expenditures of $25,876, or $10.06 for each of her 2,573 votes.

North and south Familiarity with a candidate and her history appears to have been a factor in getting votes. See Candidates/page 12

Bond: District


could ask voters to decide again Continued from page 2

the facility needs it would address haven’t gone away. The bond would pay for the installation of upgraded heating systems, well-insulated windows and doorways and efficient lighting at Charlotte High School. The building’s heating system is 47 years old and well past its life expectancy of 30 to 40 years. It would also pay for a dedicated boiler for the Charlotte Aquatic Center, secure entry ways at several buildings and upgrades to the parking lot at Charlotte Middle School. “It’s not a glamorous project,” said Hipskind. “We really do feel this is important for the school system.”

Communicating Both Sovey and Hipskind acknowledge that voters

Taking care of the people who take care of Michigan.

have a history of supporting public education in Charlotte. Still, they say school officials have to do a better job of communicating the needs to residents and of listening to their feedback. “We have a lot of listening we need to do,” said Hipskind. “We obviously didn’t efficiently communicate the needs last time.” This time around, officials say the focus groups, which should involve up to 60 people, are a first-step in talking to voters. Sovey said the available stimulus funds make placing the bond back on the November election a good idea. “The board feels it needs to ask the question because of a one-time savings of this magnitude.” The Aug. 23 Board of Education meeting is set for 6:30 p.m.

Merit exam results show gains By RACHEL GRECO

CHARLOTTE — The school district’s recent Michigan Merit Exam results, released last month, are proof, say officials, that local teachers are making headway. The assessment, which includes the ACT, was given to Charlotte High School 11th graders in March. Mary Taylor, the district’s associate superintendent for curriculum, says the results are good news. Of the five areas in which students are assessed, the district improved proficiency percentages in three categories — reading, math, and science. In all five assessment areas Charlotte juniors were judged more proficient or as proficient as the state average.

Children’s divorce workshop is set for October CHARLOTTE — A children’s divorce workshop is being offered by Lori Poyer, LMSW, ACSW, a therapist at Peaceful Balance Counseling in Charlotte. This workshop serves children between the ages of six and twelve who may be struggling with their parent’s separation or divorce. It is recognized that ending longterm relationships that do not include a marriage can be as traumatic for children as a divorce. Therefore, referrals may be made for that population of children as well.

City to hold leash requirements forum CHARLOTTE — Charlotte City Manager Gregg Guetschow will be convening a meeting on Aug. 16 of persons interested in the subject of leash requirements for walking dogs in Bennett Park. Earlier this year, the City Council adopted an ordinance requiring dogs in public areas to be on leashes. An exception was made for the area of Bennett Park south of the Battle Creek. At the request of some dog owners, in this portion of the park dogs are allowed to run off their leashes. Concerns about leash rules have been expressed since this policy was made.

The workshop consists of activities and games designed to help children deal with the separation in a safe, supportive and neutral therapeutic environment. It is designed to enable children to develop empowering communication skills and coping mechanisms. Information is also offered to the parents of the children to assist in changing negative communication into open communication and how to identify their child’s unmet needs. How well children come out of the divorce depends on how well parents handle the situation and also, how many resources parents have. Research has shown that children of divorce are at greater risk of depression, behavioral problems and school difficulties. Often those issues can lead to dropping out of school and juvenile or adult criminal behavior and incarceration.

Thirty-six children were served in the three workshops offered in previous years. Parents and children alike completed surveys and gave the workshop high marks for assisting their family through a difficult emotional time. The workshop will be offered three times throughout the year. The first workshop will be starting in October. Intakes with families are being scheduled now. There is no charge for the workshop to families living in the Eaton County area. The workshop is being offered and supported through Eaton County Juvenile Justice mileage funds. If you are interested in the workshop, call Lori at Peaceful Balance Counseling, (517) 543-1150. — From Peaceful Balance Counseling

Dog owners, walkers, runners, bicyclists and other interested individuals are invited to attend and share their views. Information obtained from the meeting will be provided to the City Council The meeting will be held in the Community Room in the basement level of City Hall beginning at 7 p.m.

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Public Schools (CPS) Education Foundation has received a major gift of art from Park West Gallery of Southfield, Mich. Bill Callahan, president of the CPS Education Foundation, reports that Mr. Albert Scaglione, founder and chief executive officer of Park West, was the major donor of the gift valued at $1.3 million. Other members of the family contributed to the gift. Callahan noted that the

foundation has received financial gifts from supporters over the past two years. He said the art is an example of a different kind of gift that is also very important. “Real estate, jewelry, life insurance benefits and long term estate gifts, for example, will also assist the foundation board in supporting the academic programs of the district.” CPS Superintendent Nancy Hipskind

said that Park West has been processing the more than 800 paintings and prints since Jan. 2010. “We have had a committee from the foundation developing plans for use of the material. Betsy Foster, art teacher, along with Carolyn Maier and Sharon Kubica of the foundation have developed a multi-year plan of how our students, faculty and the community might enjoy this wonderful gift from Park West.”

Michelle Sine, CPS central office accounting supervisor, reported a fund balance of over $20,000 at the May meeting of the foundation. Callahan complemented the directors on their good work and expressed optimism for the potential results of a newly adopted annual operation plan. — From the Charlotte Public Schools Education Foundation

Community Health helping smokers quit CHARLOTTE — Michigan is smokefree. Are you? The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is encouraging people who want to quit smoking or chewing tobacco to take advantage of free nicotine replacement products by calling the Michigan Tobacco Quitline. The Quitline phone number is 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669) and registration is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The program will provide a two-week supply of nicotine patches, gum or lozenges to all tobacco users who are age 18 and

over and meet basic health requirements. The free program is available to all callers regardless of income or insurance status. MDCH also will continue to provide the same products to the uninsured on a regular basis. The nicotine patches, gum and lozenges are available now through Sept. 30 or while supplies last and are provided on a first come, first served basis. To be eligible, callers must enroll in cessation services with the Michigan Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT NOW. When Michigan residents enroll with the Quitline, they will receive a personal coach who will as-

sist them in setting a quit date and making an individualized quit plan. The personal coach also will provide on-going support with up to five telephone coaching sessions around the caller’s quit date. “Callers using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) along with support through a telephone-based service like 1-800-QUIT NOW can increase their chances of remaining smokefree by 28 percent compared to quitting cold turkey,” said Dr. Greg Holzman, chief medical executive for MDCH. “Providing access to free NRT during this promotion will greatly enhance MDCH’s

mission to take steps to prevent disease, promote wellness and improve quality of life.” The Michigan Tobacco Quitline has received nearly 34,000 requests for assistance since it was launched in Oct. 2003. The Quitline offers both English and Spanishspeaking counselors, as well as interpretive services for a wide variety of languages. For more information, call 1-800-QUIT NOW or go to — From the Barry-Eaton District Health Department

Bourland is Charlotte’s featured ‘Teacher of the Week’ CHARLOTTE - This week’s featured “Teacher of the Week” at Charlotte Public Schools is Larry Bourland. Larry is a proud husband of Charlotte’s retired special education director, Karen Woods, and the father of four wonderful children Nick, Mike, Laura and Keith. He wears many hats. Karen and Larry have a flock of 20 sheep, three dogs and three cats. Collecting rocks is truly his obsession; he has a beautiful collection of crystals, fossils and at least three tons of rocks. He has been collecting, polishing,

digging and climbing rocks for over 40 years. When he’s not shearing sheep or giving rocks away, he is usually building. He and his fascinating wife built their house from the ground up. It seems that his wife is a pretty good electrician. Mr. B. also spent 20 years as a scoutmaster and working summer camp in the Boy Scouts in the Charlotte area. This summer he is not taking the usual grad classes. He is going to be on his motorcycle, driving to San Diego and back, col-

lecting rocks and developing lesson plans for his classroom. He hopes to ship back hundreds of pounds of treasures to give to students and to build fun lessons with. Mr. Bourland has spent 20 years teaching eighth grade earth science at Charlotte Junior High. There are thousands of past students who can’t look up at the night sky

without trying to identify the constellations or look at the ground and try to identify the rocks and minerals at their feet. He hopes that he gets students excited about the beautiful things we see around us. — From Charlotte High School

God’s glory reflected exists in all of us My wife and I sat at our campsite watching the moon as it began to rise over the lake. For a time it just seemed to hang there in the sky, but soon pulled free and continued to rise into the night. It was a full moon and it seemed to be as large as the sun that will take its place in the morning dawn. We would not notice the moon at all if the light of the sun did not strike it, because astronomers tell us that the moon has no light of its own, but simply reflects the radiance of the hidden sun. There are many people today who live in a world of darkness and despair because they are unable to generate any inner light of their own. But even they can give to the world a light the way the moon does. It’s called a “reflected glory.” We know people whose names will never get print-

We should always work to treat them the way we want God to treat us. Extra blessings far exceeding our merits pour down on all of us. Whether we love God or just accept him, his sun warms us and his gifts of returning seasons of growth and harvest feed us. Countless good things daily come our way that we have not asked for nor earned. We are not suns, but moons. We cannot all generate goodness, but we can all send forth a reflected glory.

It can be as simple as exposing our heart and mind to him and then reflecting his spirit to the world in which we live. Godliness is the gentle light a person lets fall upon his world after first receiving it from fellowship with God through Christ. Living a life patterned after the mercies that we have received through an ever-forgiving God should affect the way we treat Darwin Kuhl is the other people.

Letters to the editor Concerned about parks

Library gives thanks

I am concerned for the Eaton County Parks. We may lose the parks due to budget cuts. I am asking people to come to the Eaton County Courthouse in Charlotte Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. Each person will have three minutes to speak. This is our chance to fight for the parks that we have grown to love, the parks that we go to for family gatherings, where we take our children to play and swim and make family memories. We need support from our community to ensure that those parks will be there for our families. Fitzgerald Park, Fox Park, and Lincoln Brick Park. Please joining the fight for all of our Eaton County Parks.

The Potterville Benton Township District Library would like to thank all of the sponsors and participants of the Summer Reading Program. We had a record response and all total patrons read 1,425 books. Great job patrons!

LANSING — As summer comes to a close, American Red Cross officials encourage all eligible donors to make an appointment before summer’s end. Blood donation helps treat patients in your community, across the state and the country. “Blood donors can play an important role in the treatment of sickle cell disease, leukemia and other forms of cancer,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Region of the American Red Cross. “You can make such a difference to someone very sick through the simple act of rolling up your sleeve.” The Red Cross needs to collect about 700 units of blood everyday to ensure patients throughout the Great Lakes Region get the blood products they need. While the need for blood doesn’t go away during the summer, blood donors sometime do. Make an appointment to donate blood before the summer slips away.
