Juvenile Court administrator to retire after 41-year career By SUE LOUNDS

ST. JOHNS — “There’s something special about this community, and it’s the people,” said Fred Gibbs. Many of the people of St. Johns and Clinton County feel Gibbs is something special too. Gibbs retired Dec. 31, 2010, wrapping up a career in juvenile justice that spans more than 41 years - 35 of them in Clinton County. Gibbs started working in juvenile justice in the Ingham County youth home in 1969. “I could work there while going to college,” he said. He attended Michigan State University, studying criminal Photo by Sue Lounds justice. He came to St. Johns in August 1974; his first job was as probation officer and court referee. Fred Gibbs served as Clinton County Juvenile / As a court referee, he had to make the decision whether Family Court administrator for more than 35 years. to send first-offender cases to the judge or to handle them He retired Dec. 31. informally so the minor would not have a court record.

In July 1975, Gibbs became the first official Juvenile Court administrator. Over his 35 years in Clinton County, Gibbs worked with three different judges. Judge Tim Green hired him. He worked for Green for about four years. Then Marvin Robertson replaced Green, and Gibbs worked for him for 25 years. Six years ago, Lisa Sullivan replaced Robertson, and Gibbs worked for her for the past six years. “My role was to be there to serve the judge,” he said. As court administrator, Gibbs hired and supervised staff. He put together the budget for family/juvenile court, and he supervised the county’s youth home (Greenhaven) and its staff. “We’re very fortunate to have the youth home,” he said. “We’re probably the only county of our size that has one.” Gibbs said he approached Judge Robertson many years ago and suggested the former orphanage be converted to a youth detention home. Prior to making Greenhaven the See

Food coalition to hold public hearings this month By KEN PALMER

BATH TWP. — They began with the idea of starting a kitchen incubator as a way to create new business opportunities. But the small group of planners decided to expand their scope and start at the beginning: What would it take to create a food systems work group in southern Clinton County? “We realized quickly that a licensed kitchen available to entrepreneurs is best thought of as part of a system, not something that stands in isolation,” township Treasurer Jeff Garrity said. “So we’re taking a system-wide approach, which should have a much broader impact once we’ve developed and implemented a plan.” To that end, the Southern Clinton County Farm and Food Coalition will hold public

meetings on Jan. 13 and 20 at the Bath Community Center to discuss how food gets from the farm to the table. Growers, restaurateurs and other involved in food production are specifically invited, the group said, but everyone is welcome to attend. Those meetings will yield topics for a series of four focus groups. A $5,000 grant obtained through the MidMichigan District Health Department will help fund the focus groups. “We want to know more about what the community wants and needs,’ said Diane Golzynski, Michigan Fruit and Vegetable Nutrition Coordinator with the state Department of Community Health and a member of the coalition. “We can’t hold focus groups until we know what they should be focusing on.” Some local food councils are operating in the state, but the movement is still in

its infancy, and it’s not clear what needs to be done to make it work, said Golzynski, whose job is to improve access to fruits and vegetables for state residents. The coalition will work with DeWitt and Watertown Township on the effort. Bath, DeWitt and Watertown are participating in the Creating Entrepreneurial Communities program through MSU’s Land Policy Institute. And the food systems initiative fits the thrust of that program, Garrity and Golzynski said. “In my mind, it’s really a development issue,” Garrity said. “We’ve got people who are losing their jobs or are underemployed. We’d like to set up a system that people can fit into.” It’s also a type of development that fits with the rural atmosphere of northern half of the township, he said,

The farm and food coalition includes seven people, including Dru Montri, director of the Michigan Farmers Market Association and chair of the Bath Farmers Market. Kim Scott, health promotion and chronic disease supervisor for the Mid-Michigan District Health Department, said the $5,000 grant is part of a “package grant” the department obtained through the state’s Building Healthy Communities initiative. A similar effort is underway in Ingham County, where a food systems conference is scheduled for Feb. 17, Scott said. “We’re doing it on a smaller scale,” said Scott, who attended some of the coalition’s meetings. The two public meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. at the community center, 5959 Park Lake Road, with a social time starting at 7 p.m. To RSVP, a form is available on the township’s Web site.

youth detention center, Clinton County sent its juvenile offenders to detention centers around the state. “This county has saved millions of dollars over the years, thanks to Greenhaven,” he said. People were the best part of Gibbs’ job. “Working with my coworkers was the very best part of my job,” said Gibbs. That is something he says he will miss. Gibbs said he convinced the county commission years ago to raise the salary for juvenile court staff so he could hire good, qualified people. “Most of the staff has been together for nearly 30 years,” he said. “We worked well together. We were a likeminded staff. The staff made everybody feel good - kids, interns, part timers. It’s a network of people really helping other people, and it extends into the community in a big way.” He said his work at the Ingham County youth detention center was a real training ground. “Somewhere, we learned that we could do prevention and early intervention rather than punishment and detention with most of the kids,” he said.

He also learned that what all of the juvenile offenders have in common is their need for a sense of belonging. “You can’t punish a kid into a sense of belonging,” he said. The staff he put together began to create the prevention and intervention programs that have become a hallmark of Clinton County’s juvenile program. “You don’t have to take the kid deeper into the system than they have to go,” said Gibbs. Along the way, Gibbs earned a master’s degree in

DeWitt council selects administrator finalists By KEN PALMER

DeWITT — Two government officials from the east side of the state and a former Meridian Township planning official are finalists for the city’s top administrative job. Michael Burns, the assistant city manager in Fenton, is scheduled to be interviewed by the City Council at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 10. Daniel Coss, assistant city manager and community development director in Marysville, and Troy Langer, an attorney with D. Hayward & Associates in Lansing, are scheduled to be interviewed the following night. The Council also might interview a fourth candidate this week, although that candidate’s name was being with-

held. Working with a hiring consultant, the City Council agreed on the finalists in its meeting last week. The city is looking to replace former City Administrator Chris Olson, who left his post in help with his father’s dental practice in northwest Michigan. Burns, a former Macomb County Sheriff’s deputy, has been an assistant city manager in Fenton, located in Genesee County since 2009. Coss has been with the city of Marysville, north of Port Huron, for about 11 years, the last seven as assistant city manager and community development director. Langer, who lives in DeWitt, spent 14 years with Meridian Township before signing on with the Hayward law firm in 2009. He was senior land-use planner for Meridian

All three finalists have master’s degrees in administration and ample government work experience, said Sandra Rich, of Hiring Solutions, an Okemos company hired to lead the search for DeWitt. Rich described the field of applicants as “pretty stellar for a city administrator’s job.” “It’s a pretty competitive environment out there right now,” she said. In all, 105 people applied for the DeWitt position, Rich said. The candidates have been screened through extensive questionnaires, telephone interviews and on-site visits, she said. Working with the Council, Rich reduced the field to 12 and then to six or seven before settling on the finalists last week.

problems. We have some tools, but not enough.” Enforcement would continue to be complaint-driven, with the goal being to resolve the problem - not to generate revenue for the township, Taylor said. “The Board wants to be responsive to people who have problems, and they want to balance that with individual property owners’ rights,” he said. The International Property Maintenance code is a set of commonly used standards that are updated every three years. Local communities are able to tailor it to their specific needs. The city of East Lansing and Meridian, Delhi and Delta townships are among the area communities that have adopted the IPMC. In DeWitt Township, a seven-member committee comprising board members, township staff and community members was formed last fall to study the issue and make recommendations.. Taylor said he knows that some people will view the IPMC as a negative. “That’s why we set up a committee - to make sure this is right for our community,” he said. Richard Trent, the township’s community development director, said adopting the IPMC and

establishing a violations bureau would add teeth to the enforcement process and allow the township to address complaints more quickly. Under the current system, when a complaint is received, the township tries to contact the property owner and might have to send a series of letters requesting a response, Trent said. If they don’t respond, the township’s only recourse is circuit court, he said. The court process can be slow, and the township could end up spending thousands of dollars trying to resolve the matter, he said. Under the IMPC, the township would have the option of issuing a ticket if someone refuses to work with staff to correct a problem; The fine would be $75 for a first offense and $250 for a second offense within a six-month period. Anyone who fails to comply with a violation would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500 and possibe jail time. The Township Board will hear the committee’s final recommendations on Monday night. The measures could be introduced for a first reading on Jan. 24, with final adoption in February, township officials said.

DeWitt Twp. considers tougher code enforcement


DeWITT TWP. — After more than a year of discussion, the Township Board is expected to take up new measures designed to reduce blight and resolve code violations more quickly. On Monday (Jan. 10), a committee formed to study the issue will make its final recommendations about adopting the International Property Maintenance Code and creating a Violations Bureau. Under that system, property owners could be ticketed if they don’t correct a violation, with stiffer fines for repeat violations. The measures would streamline an often-lengthy and expensive enforcement process and make it easier for the township to correct code violations ranging from neighborhood eyesores and serious safety issues, township officials said. The township now lacks leverage to force compliance when it receives complaints about junk, overgrown yards or other violations that can impact property values or even endanger people, officials said. “We get calls from residents asking us to address problems that affect their quality of life,” township Manager Rod Taylor said. “We need to have the ability to address these FREE ESTIMATES!

DeWitt-Bath Review


Bath resident victim of break-in By KEN PALMER

BATH TWP. — An elderly township woman came home from church on Jan. 2 to find that someone had broken into her home. The woman, 80, saw that her back door had been smashed open and her television was gone, police reports said. She left the house, returned to her car and called 911. A 12-gauge shotgun also was taken in the break-in. The case remained under investigation.

Sexual assault reported

Township police were investigating an alleged sexual assault at the Club apartments on the morning of Jan. 1. A 20-year-old woman said she was leaving a party in one of the buildings around 1 a.m. when a man

approached her in the parking lot, told her he was a rapper and asked her if she wanted to be in a movie, police reports said. At some point, he grabbed her by the arm and pulled her into a stairway, where he pushed her down and tried to force himself on her, the woman said. The woman said she pushed the man away from her. He ran off when a security guard approached the area. Police had no suspects and were waiting to receive a formal statement from the victim.

Police investigate fight

Prosecutors were reviewing the facts in a Jan. 1 altercation between two women at the American Legion hall on Clark Road. A 21-year-old East Lansing woman called 911 to report that a 25-year-old

woman had grabbed her sweatshirt, hurting her neck, police reports said. The victim claimed the suspect accused her of reporting her for welfare fraud. The suspect said she grabbed the victim’s sweatshirt while trying to push her away. A witness stepped in to break up the fight, which occurred about 11:30 p.m. No arrests were made at the scene.

Trespasser arrested

An Okemos man was arrested for trespassing at the Speedway gas station on Marsh Road on Jan. 1 after he had been warned several times to stay off the property. The suspect, 51, had been warned to stay off the premises on Dec. 30 and 31, police reports said. While en route to the Clinton County Jail, the victim complained of chest pains and was taken to an

emergency room for treatment. He was jailed after being released by medical staff.

Man arrested after crash

An Arizona man was jailed for drunken driving after running off the road, hitting several objects and getting stuck in a ditch about 2 a.m. Dec. 31. A homeowner on Angle Drive called police after hearing a loud “bang” in front of his house, police reports said. The van ran over a trash cart, damaged a fence and struck a pine tree before becoming stuck, the reports said. Besides body damage, the van had a broken windshield and two flat tires, The suspect, 51, told an officer that he didn’t realize he had been in an accident. He was taken to the Clinton County Jail.

High Satisfaction Rate With Hearing Instruments

According to a recent survey by the Better Hearing Institute, more than nine out of ten (93 percent) consumers said that hearing instruments improved the quality of their lives. Eighty-five percent of the respondents to the survey indicated that they were satisfied with the benefits they derived from using a hearing instrument. Nine out of ten survey respondents said they enjoyed improved communication in one-on-one situations with the help of a hearing instrument. More than eight out of ten were satisfied with their instruments’ performance in small groups and while watching

Collecting Christmas magic The weekend of Dec. 3 was a busy one for “Elf” Jim Kraft and other members of the DeWitt Lions Club as they collected donations for the DeWitt Community Christmas Basket program. Members of the club braved the cold at Flap Jack, Speedway, LAFCU, Fifth Third Bank, the Post Office, and out in the street at the four corners. These donations aided 17 families and 15 seniors, who received the baskets on Dec. 18. A family in DeWitt Township was also assisted with these donations.

Construction of Meijer store to begin in spring

BATH TWP. — A longawaited retail project is expected to get off the ground this year at East Saginaw Highway and Marsh Road. Meijer, which first sought permission to build a new store on the 26-acre site more than four years ago, plans to begin construction there in late spring or early summer, township officials said. The project could jumpstart development along that corridor, they said. “People have been waiting for Meijer to come in there,” township planner Jim Foulds said. “We’ve had a lot of calls from property owners in close proximity to that site (wanting to know what’s happening with Meijer).” A Meijer spokesman said the Bath Township location

is an active site but declined to elaborate. But the giant retailer previously proposed a 152,000-square-foot store and a gas station on the north side of East Saginaw, just west of Marsh Road near the I-69 interchange. Township Superintendent Troy Feltman said the new store may be slightly smaller than what Meijer previously proposed. The Meijer site includes two out lots that would be available for other developments, he said. The privately-held Meijer chain is based in Grand Rapids and operates nearly 200 stores in five states. The company applied for a special-use permit in 2006 and gradually finished acquiring the 11 parcels that make up the Bath site. The company filed a final site plan in 2008 and made another filing with the town-

ship in 2009, officials said. Meijer will need to submit building plans before permits can be issued. Some road improvements have already been made as a result of the project, but some additional improvements will be necessary, they said. The Meijer store would be the township’s largest single retail development, but its impact isn’t likely to end there. Local officials expect it will be a catalyst for other development in the area. “We think this is what we need to get that corridor moving,” Feltman said. MSU Federal Credit Union won approval to build on a parcel along Marsh, just south of the McDonald’s. but put their plans on hold pending the Meijer decision, township officials said. Local officials expect that project will now move forward.

Post-holiday exercise is great for pets, people The holidays have passed with many of our pets and their people having some lingering effects. How so? Succinctly put, they’ve gained weight What must both man and beast do to remedy this situation? It’s really very simple. Weight loss occurs (for those of us over the age of 30) by doing two things: consuming fewer calories and, just as importantly, expending more energy via exercise. What is one of the most cost effective ways to do the latter? Start a regular regimen of walking. It is estimated we burn 100 calories for each mile traveled. It is the distance Pet traveled, rather than the rate that determines the number health of calories burned i.e. a faster pace simply means more Dr. Stephen calories are used in an hour. R. Thimmig So let’s not be in too big of a hurry. A slow, steady pace is less likely to cause an injury, making it more likely for both of you to walk again the next day. Doing the exercise thing, with your best friend, fourlegged or otherwise, makes working out more enjoyable. Bear in mind, for pets who spend most of their time in-



Associate Broker Coldwell Banker Hubbell Briarwood DeWitt Office (517) 420-1272

doors, harsh winter conditions may be a bit much. When the wind chill dips below zero, unless your canine companion has been acclimated to the conditions, putting off walking, until it warms up a little, may be best for the both of you. Walking with your dog and watching them check out where others have “gone” before is often quite comical. Many want to lay claim to the same site. They do this by “marking” the area - either cocking their leg or squatting over the exact locale. As this is to be expected, dog walkers should be considerate of their neighbor’s property and avoid having their pet “mark” areas of the yard, walkway, or objects that will be handled by humans. Keeping your pet’s immunizations up to date will help them stay healthy. Cold winter temperatures have very little effect on the survivability of many of the viruses that infect our pets. For example, it is not uncommon for parvovirus (a disease causing severe bloody diarrhea, vomiting and death) to remain in the environment for a year or longer! Not to worry, adult pets, vaccinated annually, are protected. Cold temperatures cause parasite eggs to fail to embrinate, i.e. transform into an infective state. This makes it less likely for pets to become infected with intestinal para-

sites during the winter. However, this does not negate the value of having your pet’s stool examined to ensure they were not previously infected and harboring worms that will rob them of nutrients and promote diarrhea. If you will be traversing neighborhoods in evening’s darkness, might I suggest your pet wear a “Safe-T-Tag” flashing strobe? This brightly flashing device hangs from their collar making them visible for as much as a mile! The blinking strobe a pet wears may make it safer for the people they have in tow. Don’t let winter’s cold stop you. It is not necessary for you and your pet to go five miles your first time out. Start with a jaunt around a block or two and go up from there. When you return, be certain to offer your furry buddy some fresh warm water. Being well hydrated helps their circulation keeping them warm. Contrary to popular belief, unless you and your pet are traveling MANY miles, having your dog consume extra calories is not warranted. For more information about this and other pet health concerns contact an expert - your veterinarian. Dr. Stephen R.

Novel compares different worlds “The Anarchist” by John Smolens tells the fictional story of the assassination of President William McKinley. The tenderness between President McKinley and his wife is a sharp contrast to the gritty world occupied by his assassin and the characters that are guarding against his action. In September of 1901, McKinley, his wife, and his entourage came to Buffalo, New York for the Pan-American Exposition. Before television, it was important for public figures to be visible to the public. This was also a time of social unrest. Emma Goldman was a public figure of a different type. She was at the center of the anarchist movement. The anarchists were essentially the forerunners

of labor unions, in that they tried to call attention to unfair labor practices. This was a time when employees had no rights and were expected to work long hours under miserable and dangerous conditions. The anarchists did not have a constructive social plan, but were prepared to violently attack society. One of their heroes was a man who had recently assassinated the King of Italy. Leon Czolgosz carefully studied his actions. Czolgosz was a drifter with radical attitudes who even had a Michigan connection.

He was born in Detroit, shortly after his family emigrated from Poland. His father found transient work in lumber camps in Alpena, Rogers City, and Posen. Work was scarce, so the family eventually moved to Pennsylvania in Czolgosz’s teen-age years. He always had a difficult life, working for only short periods. Although he stayed with family, there were conflicts. This novel portrays him as an individual seeking an accomplishment. He also had an obsession with Emma Goldman who often called for dramatic acts of violence. Leon wanted to become one of her heroes. He began stalking McKinley. This was an era before the development of the Secret Service. National security was provided by Pinkerton

men. The Pinkerton detective Jake Norris was working advanced security at Buffalo in preparation for the President’s visit. The novel opens with the death of a prostitute in one Buffalo’s canals, and Norris realizes that he needs a new spy so he can infiltrate the anarchist groups in Buffalo. The grim working class atmosphere of Buffalo has several people who are willing to inform for a small bribe. The novel starkly portrays the helplessness of poverty and the brutality that establishment figures often used against the poor during this time. Both McKinley and Czolgosz were doomed men.

Ten New Year Resolutions To Share with Your Pet

January 9, 2011

If you’ve promised to exercise more, eat better and spend time with family and friends this year, consider sharing those resolutions with your pet. The experts at Best Friends Pet Care in Lansing say you and your pet will benefit from the following resolutions: 1. Be Healthy --Schedule a visit to the vet for routine exam testing. Keep up with vaccinations, heartworm and flea treatments. 2. Look Good, Feel Good – Regular grooming is important to your pet’s health. Brush your pet’s coat regularly, and schedule professional grooming sessions. 3. Improve Your Diet -- Is your pet is on the best diet for his age, breed and health? A pet’s need changes over time, so check with a vet or pet care professional. 4. Exercise More -- Daily exercise is good for both of you, and can be a bonding experience, as well as a stress reliever. 5. Keep Up with School – A well-trained pet is a pleasure and a responsibility. Whether for basics or upper level classes, enroll in training. 6. Protect Your ID -- Get a new collar and ID tag for your pet. Include phone numbers and other important contact information. 7. Maintain a Safe Home – Pet-proof the house: cover electrical cords, clean up any spilled antifreeze LJ-0100065552

and put medications out of reach. 8. Save for the Future -- Put aside a little justin-case cash for emergency vet bills. You never know when you might need it. 9. Volunteer – If you can’t donate your time, donate funds or supplies to an animal shelter or spay/neuter clinic. 10. Enjoy Life -- Socialization is healthy: visit the dog park, join a meet-up group or enroll in a class where you’ll both make new friends.

County mentoring open house on Jan. 11 ST. JOHNS – Did you realize that January is Michigan and National Mentoring Month? The 2011 theme is “Pass It On.” During January 2011, the everyday, ordinary people who are making a difference for kids in Clinton County will be celebrated. Mentors don’t need special skills - all they need to do is care about kids and be willing to volunteer about an hour a week. What better time than right now to find out about how you can get involved to be a mentor for a local youth and help change their lives while changing yours at the same time. Clinton County MSU Extension and Clinton County Juvenile Court are working to find adult and teen mentors for a variety of different mentoring opportunities. There are opportunities where the mentor and mentee get to pick when and where they meet and other opportunities where matches meet at the same place and time each week. Take some time to learn about what Clinton County Youth Mentoring has to offer and consider how you can get involved. They are looking for people who can commit one to two hours once a week. Mentor opportunities

are at different sites around the county. First, Key Mentoring After-school matches third to sixth grade students in the Clinton County area with an adult or teen mentor. It is a fun and educational program that focuses on life skill and academic development, recreation, and community service projects. By providing youth with a mentor, they will be given the opportunity to expand these skills through having a positive role model and someone to support their development. As a result, they will become equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to make positive life choices and become a successful adult. Another site-based option is the Key Mentoring Lunch Buddies which matches middle school students during their lunch hour with an adult mentor. Adults would be committed to spending a lunch hour once a week with a middle school student for the entire school year. During this time, mentors will form a relationship with their mentee to help them gain the knowledge and skills to make positive life choices and become a successful adult. Finally, there is one more site-based option through the PASS Mentoring program. In this option, teen mentors under adult supervision will be matched with a sixth through eighth grade student and will meet on Sun-

day evenings. If meeting the same time every week or one of the times doesn’t work for you there are two more options where mentors and mentees pick their meeting places and times in our community based programs. First, Creating Connections Mentoring provides youth who are involved in foster care or adopted out of foster care with an adult who will spend time with them in a one-on-one mentoring relationship. Second, PASS community-based Mentoring provides court-involved youth with an adult who spends quality one-on-one time with them. As Helen Keller once said “The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.” Take this opportunity to find out how you can give just a couple hours of your life to bring cheer to lives of others. For information on how you can be involved, contact Clinton County MSU Extension office at (989)-224-5240 or attend the Clinton County Youth Mentoring Open House on Jan. 11 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Clinton County Courthouse. – From Clinton County MSU Extension
