DeWitt Twp. considering property upkeep code By KEN PALMER

Local Lions aid others Lloyd Kilbreath, Past District Governor of the Michigan Lions Club, visited the DeWitt Lions Club last month to update the club on the Kidsight project, which provides vision screenings for children from age 1 though 5. Kilbreath told club members the camera currently being used is 10 years old and in need of service. The DeWitt Lions voted to contribute $500 for the purchase of a new camera system for use within the district. Pictured are Lloyd Kilbreath with the district’s old Kidsight camera, and DeWitt Lions 1st Vice President, John Donahue.

DeWITT TWP. — Ruth Drury was tired of looking at overgrown grass and various “junk” stored on a neighboring property. So she called the township and asked that something be done to correct it. “It’s really disheartening when you sit out in your backyard and not be able to enjoy it,” said Drury, who lives in a township subdivision. After being contacted by the township, the other homeowner addressed some of the problems, but not all of them, Drury said. After a time, she found herself looking at old patio furniture and piles of junk again, she said. “I contacted the township a second time, and they said they’d done all they could do,” she said. The problem, township officials say, is that they don’t have the tools to force property owners to comply with rules against blight, including overgrown yards, accumulated junk and potential safety hazards. So over the past year, they’ve been exploring the adoption of a standardized property maintenance code that would allow them to correct code violations more quickly

On Jan. 10, a committee formed to study the issue recommended the township adopt a version of the International Property Maintenance Code and create a violations bureau. That would allow the township to assess fines against property owners who don’t comply. The Township Board sent the issue back to the committee to make sure the code is tailored to suit the township’s needs. Some board members were concerned the code would be too restrictive and cause a hardship for some residents. The committee met in late January and decided to focus on addressing health and safety issues at rental properties and serious blight issues that affect property values or cause safety hazards in neighborhoods, Township Manager Rod Taylor said. “Non-owner occupied properties are a big concern,” Taylor said. “We know we have problems we can’t fix (at rental properties),” Committee members are going through the code and lessening many of the restrictions, said Taylor and township Treasurer Diane Mosier, who sit on the ad hoc committee.

Property: DeWitt Twp.

considering new code Continued from page 1

Board members want the code to be focused heavily on health and safety issues, Mosier said. They also want to want to balance the rights of individual property owners with the need to protect the community, she said. “We know there’s a need,” Mosier said. “We have to find that fit.” The IPMC is a set of commonly used standards that are updated ever three years. Local communities can tailor it to suit their needs. The city of East Lansing and Meridian, Delta and Delhi townships are among the local communities that now use it. In DeWitt Township, the impetus for the IPMC grew out of the planning process for the South Central Area Plan, adopted in 2009. Residents cited code enforcement

and blight cleanup as one of the area’s biggest needs. But not everyone is comfortable with the idea. When the Township Board discussed the issue on Jan. 10, several residents expressed concerns about the IPMC. Township resident Elinor Miller said the township should adopt the IPMC because the current system lacks teeth. “Unless they take you to court, they can’t do anything about it,” she said. But the new code should have a “mercy clause,” she said. “The money they collect would go into a fund,” she said. “If they come upon someone with real financial problems, the township would take care of it,” Anyone who wants to help the committee with its review can call the clerk’s office at (517) 668-0270.

Drunken driver caught

A Bath Township man was arrested for drunken driving after being involved in a Jan. 30 traffic crash on Drumheller Road. An officer was called to an area along Drumheller, west of Webster Road, about 6:10 p.m. and found a vehicle resting on a sewer manhole in the ditch, police reports said. The driver, a Haslett man, said he was eastbound when the suspect backed into him from a driveway. The officer walked to the residence across the road and spoke with the suspect, 49, who admitted he’d been drinking before the accident. He was taken to the Clinton County Jail.

Medication collection events allow residents to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. “These services are important to increase awareness, and prevention of prescription drug abuse,” said Sheriff Wayne Kangas. “Residents are encouraged to dispose of medications responsibly by participating in one of the events to be held in the coming months.” “These services are also important to help safeguard both human and environmental health,” said Cara Clore, Clinton County Waste Management Coordinator. Medications should never be disposed of by flushing or pouring items down the drain. Most substances are not able to be filtered

by water treatment plants. As a result they can end up in surface waters and negatively impact local ecosystems. Landfill disposal has similar challenges. The preferred disposal alternative is through special incineration technologies, which destroy chemical compounds while preventing pollution to the environment. The schedule for medication collection programs are as follows: • Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community Center of the St. Jude Catholic Parish, 801 N. Bridge St. in DeWitt; • March 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bath Township Senior Center, 14480 Webster Road in Bath (a bake sale during this event will benefit the senior center activity fund); • April 16 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clean Community Event in St. Johns, location provided when appointment is made. For more information about participating in a medication collection event, or to learn about proper disposal of medications, contact the Clinton County Department of Waste Management at (989) 224-5186, by email at, or on their website at — From the Clinton County Department of Waste Management

DeWitt-Bath Review



HASLETT — Extending a streak of five straight league championships got more difficult when DeWitt’s girls lost two starters to health issues over the last two weeks. But the No. 4-ranked Panthers proved it will take more than that - and a nine-point second-half deficit against their biggest rival - to end the annual title hopes. With the usual help from its biggest star, and added contributions from some new ones, DeWitt came back to beat Haslett 59-55 and extend its CAAC Gold lead to two games with four more league games to play Jan. 28. The Panthers (11-2, 6-0 Gold) also hope they ended a recent run that included two losses in three games coming into the night - including to unranked Lakewood on Tuesday. Despite the recent bad luck, it appears they’ve survived.

ATTORNEY EDWARD W. JACKSON Jackson, Jackson & Associates, P.C. Attorneys at Law

“We’ve still got the same expectations. We still want to win the league title straight up,” DeWitt senior guard Kait VanderMaas said. “At halftime, we made a promise to each other that we’d play good defense, get on the boards, and the offense was going to come.” With just less than six minutes to play, it arrived. Haslett (7-6, 4-2) led by eight heading into the fourth quarter. But with points from six players, the Panthers took back the lead with 2:40 left - their first advantage since the final minute of the first half. All-state senior guard Dena Droste had 15 points, including six during the fourth quarter. But she had plenty of help, starting with the other two starters from the team’s original five. VanderMaas had a game and career-high 20 points and made all 13 of her free throws, while also grabbing eight rebounds. Senior center Hannah Acre had nine points and

seven rebounds. Other late contributions were smaller but no less significant. Like senior forward Kelly McGiveron’s four points during a 14-6 run to re-take the lead after senior Averie Conn’s bucket got it started. Senior Kailyn Wegenke’s made free throw with 18.7 seconds left to push the lead to five and perhaps just out of reach. “This was really important for us. We’ve had a very, very tough stretch,” DeWitt coach Bill McCullen said. “This team has a lot of seniors. They’ve got a sense of urgency this time of year. They really stepped up.” Haslett also has its share of seniors, and they fought to the end. Guard Jessica Ray had 16 points, all during the second and third quarters, and forwards Miranda Rogers and Molly Duda had nine and eight points, respectively. But the Vikings went cold in crunch time, hitting just 4 of 16 fourth-quarter shots - and just when DeWitt heated up.

HASLETT — DeWitt’s Nick Iacobellis scored 19 points and Jordan Johnson tossed in 14 in the Panthers 61-52 loss to Haslett Jan. 28. DeWitt fell behind to the CAAC Goldleading Vikings 15-6 in the first quarter. Haslett continued to pull away in the second quarter, taking a 34-17 lead. DeWitt shooters found their range in the second half, outscoring Haslett 35-27, but could not overcome the first-half deficit. “We didn’t come out and play hard at the beginning and we dug too deep a hole,” DeWitt coach Ron Marlan said. “We’re looking

at putting it the (good) minutes together. Last week against Ionia we had a good first half and not second half.” Johnson pulled down 10 rebounds. Jordan Brown scored eight points and Austin Rusnell added six points for the Panthers. Connor Zamiara had five points. Zach Parker led the Vikings with 16 points. Joe Varlesi scored 15. The loss gives DeWitt a 3-3 league record. The Panthers are 4-7 overall. Haslett, with a 6-0 league record, looks to have a lock on the CAAC Gold league title. Geoff Kimmerly of the Lansing Sate Journal contributed to this story.

All this week, remind your children of the wonder and delight of reading.

A Valentine’s Day Makeover for Your Best Friend

More than three-quarters of all pet owners give gifts to the family pet on holidays, including Valentine’s Day. But forget candy and flowers: what your dog really wants is a new rawhide, some yummy dog treats. Or, how about a day at the spa?

irst Night g Free IIss O ur P oliccy Our Policy

February is a great time to give your dog a mid-winter makeover, says Nancy Semrau of Best Friends Pet Care in Lansing.

ffor or e each ach ac h ne new w Fr Frie Friend iend nd w we e ma make make! ke!!* ke

“Grooming is often neglected during the winter months, resulting in matted hair that can cause irritation and odor. And home heating systems can make your pet’s skin dry and scaly. A thorough grooming will leave your pet clean and comfortable– and much nicer to be near.” To give your pet a spa treatment at home, Semrau says, begin by bathing him with a good quality moisturizing shampoo. After rinsing, follow with a conditioner. For a moisturizing treatment, she recommends letting the conditioner sit for five minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Only use shampoos and conditioners intended for pets, she says. “Animal’s skin has a different pH from our, so you never use your own hair care products on your pet.” If you’re unsure about the right products for your pet’s skin, ask a professional groomer for recommendations. Don’t forget the manicure. Since dogs spend less time out-of-doors during the winter months, their nails need more frequent clipping.

For more advice on grooming for your pet, visit Best Friends at 2920 Port Lansing Road or on the web at LJ-0100070748

If you don’t want your wet dog shaking himself dry in the living room, consider having a professional pamper your pet. Your best friend will come home looking and smelling so good that you’ll want to lavish him with Valentine’s kisses and cuddles.

Thermal Life Far Infrared Sauna Far infrared is a section of the natural band of light that is not visible to the human eye but can be felt as heat. Unlike the high heat produced in traditional saunas, far infrared heat is able to penetrate the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches at lower temperatures. This stimulates the body’s cellular detoxification process much more effectively than a traditional sauna.
