Future of regional ‘aerotropolis’ unclear

King, a six-year veteran with the department, was recognized for his outstanding service to the department and community. Craig and his wife, Dorothy, reside in DeWitt Township.

DeWITT TWP. — Local officials are in a holding pattern over plans for an “aerotropolis” at Capital Region International Airport. The economic development project hinges on tax incentives Gov. Rick Snyder wants to eliminate. Officials from DeWitt Township and the city of Lansing in January announced they were applying for a Next Michigan Development Corp., or “aerotropolis” designation, which allows municipalities to use tax incentives to attract manufacturing, distribution, technology and other businesses to the airport property. The program was created by state legislation passed in December. But last month, Snyder proposed a budget that would replace the state business tax with a 6 percent corporate income tax and eliminate several business tax incentives, including those for brownfield redevelopment and renaissance zones. It’s unclear how Snyder’s proposal would

affect the aerotropolis project, but the main benefits of the program revolve around incentives such as brownfield redevelopment tax credits or renaissance zones, which eliminate most state and local taxes in a designated area for a certain period of time. “A blanket approach to eliminating incentive tools may have some very negative, unintended consequences,” said Lansing Finance Director Jerry Ambrose. At this point, the city and township will continue working on a 425 agreement for land, tax and services sharing. The airport is in DeWitt Township. Many tax incentive programs, such as a tax abatement on new personal property, are available in Lansing but not the township. A 425 agreement would allow those incentives in the township. “With every great idea, there’s challenges that you have to overcome,” said Rodney Taylor, DeWitt Township manager. “This is a tough point for the state and ... we need to give the state a fair opportunity to make the See Airport/page 3

adjustments they need to make.” Bob Selig, executive director of the Capital Region Airport Authority, which oversees the airport, said he is preparing a “notice of intent” for the Michigan Economic Development Corp. he’ll submit by March 31. It’s the first step in applying for the Next Michigan Development Corp. designation. “My hope is that some or all of those incentive packages are going to survive,” he said.

• DeWitt Township delayed a public hearing originally set for March 14 to discuss a 425 land, tax and services sharing agreement with the city of Lansing. A new date has not been set. • Officials originally said the aerotropolis would cover the 2,000-acre airport property and land within a mile of the airport. But state legislation would only allow the zone to include land owned by the airport and properties south of the airport along Grand River Avenue.

DeWITT TWP. — The idea for J2 Tanning started as a joke between friends Justin Carpenter and Jason Hadley. “In DeWitt, there’s only one tanning salon, and it was kind out of the way for both of us,” Carpenter explained. “We talked about opening our own tanning salon. It was kind of a joke at first. Then, a spot opened up and we thought we might want to actually do this.” The two partners leased space formerly occupied by a karate studio in the Schavey Road Plaza. They removed a dropped ceiling, built tanning rooms, installed a floor of granite tile, carpet and wood and bought new furniture. They also designed their own logo. They were hoping to open the business as soon as final inspections were completed late last week. It’s the first brick-and-mortar business for the 20-year-old Carpenter, a business management student who works for his father’s company in Okemos. Hadley owned a cappuccino truck. Both men live in the DeWitt area. The salon has eight tanning beds and two stand-up units. The partners also plan to sell custom swimwear made by Carpenter’s father’s company, along with sunglasses. The salon has five employees, including Hadley and Carpenter, who will manage the business most of the time. J2 Tanning, 13171 Schavey, is located near the YMCA and Biggby Coffee in the plaza and will be open seven days a week. “Everyone I talked to thought it was a great location,” Carpenter said.

milk is called “lactogenic transmission”. To make matters worse there is a pariparturient (after giving birth) increase in egg production. This ensures the environment, where the young will be spending much of their time, is loaded with eggs. Spring also causes mature parasites, those already present in the G.I. tract of juvenile, adult and senior animals, to produce a greater number of eggs. Those who study worms a.k.a. parasitologists speculate that this is an opportunity for the worms to capitalize on the overall abundance of new life and make more of their own kind. All of their eggs are passed in the host’s stool. Needless to say, wherever they defecate the environment is contaminated. People failing to use simple hygienic principles, washing your hands before you eat, may suffer the consequences of being infected with intestinal parasites. There are several other ways humans may be exposed to the parasites found in other species. Eating raw or undercooked meat “Steak Tar-tar” allows us to ingest microscopic cysts that contain parasites awaiting their next victim. Running through an area where animals have defecated exposes us to larva that burrow into our skin. Needless to say, an ounce of prevention, washing our hands before we eat is a really good idea. To avoid contracting toxoplasmosis meat should be properly cooked and raw vegetables should be washed before they are consumed. Steak tar-tar is prepared in a special way so that any encysted parasites are annihilated before they are consumed.

Avoiding contact with excrement (or washing it off shortly after contact) keeps us from being infected with parasites from other species. Of special concern is raccoon roundworm. When it enters a human it tends to cause brain damage! In the next article I will discuss how we identify the type of worm bothering our furry friend and measures that may be taken to minimize their impact. For more information about this and other pet health concerns, contact an expert, your veterinarian. Dr. Stephen R.

Part II involves a discussion on what measures can be taken to identify, treat and prevent reinfection. Spring brings with it a daily increase in the length of time we see the sun. Pet Yea! Mother Nature recognizes this and responds by sendhealth ing her animal creatures a secret message - propagate. Dr. Stephen Plants and animals includR. Thimmig ing intestinal worms respond and proliferate. Why do the animals proliferate? The premise is quite simple. With plenty of sun there will be an abundance of food. Hence moms, instead of foraging for their next meal, are able to spend time tending to the needs of their growing and developing young. Intestinal parasites, in particular worms, fit right in to this scenario. The dormant larvae, laying in wait in cysts in the breast tissue, are released in to the milk that feeds the newborns. So, every time the babies suckle, along with the milk, they get a dose of worms. Pretty cool idea if you’re a worm that wants to survive. The technical term that describes this form of transfer from mom to her babies via the

Novel examines creation of Tiffany stained glass Susan Vreeland has written several novels that follow the creative processes of famous artists. This time the novel “Clara and Mr. Tiffany” details the creation of stained glass for the Tiffany studios. Louis Comfort Tiffany was a pioneer in the employment of women as artists in stained glass. He did not allow married women to work for his company; therefore Clara Driscoll had to leave when she married. When her husband died, she returned to supervise the “Tiffany girls.” Although her main function was supervision, Clara began to play a creative role. She lived in the center of New York City, but managed outings that gave her a glimpse of the natural world. Tiffany was obsessed with the beauty of nature, so Clara began to look more carefully at ways that flowers could be used in artistic decoration. She was inspired by a baptismal font that had been created by the Tiffany studios for the 1892 Colum-

bian Exposition in Chicago to imagine lamps made from stained glass. At that time all lamps were oil lamps, so all parts were made from glass. According to this novel, Clara was the artist who had the idea to make Tiffany stained glass into a functional piece of artwork by creating the leaded-glass lamp shade. The depiction of Clara’s personal life gives a rich picture of life of the working class during America’s Gilded Age. As a single, working woman, Clara lives in a boarding house in which the tenants create a family for themselves. The other residents are mainly actors and artists. These are people who live an irregular life during a period when society was very conservative. Clara has close friendships in this group that stimulate

her artistic growth. A source of pleasure for Clara and her friends is learning to ride bicycles. It becomes a way to go further into the county. Clara also becomes involved in the lives of several of her workers. She learns first-hand how brutal life is in the tenements. Clara and her “girls” also have to face labor challenges. As money becomes tight at the Tiffany studios, there are conflicts between the departments for financing. The labor union, which only admits men, threatens to strike unless some of the work done by the women is sent to their departments. The novel touches on social change, the artistic sensibilities of the period, and the difficulties women had creating a satisfying life for themselves during this time.

Now how many have said their hearing aids make some sounds too loud, don’t work well in noise, or they can’t tell if they are really helping them hear at all? Audiologists and dispensers try to make hearing aids function the best they can to give the patient a good outcome. But there were always a lot of difficulties surrounding comfort and understanding of speech. Let’s say you have a small child, an average sized wo woman, and a very large man, all with the same hearing loss. All hearing Julie Pabst aids would be Audiologist programmed the same way, according to the hearing aid manufacturers software. But the ear canals themselves must figure into the process, as well. Without diving into too much physics, ear canal size and shape for the child would be quite small. The woman would be close to the average size ear canals and the man’s ear canals would be quite large and long. The child would receive too much power from the hearing aids, the woman’s fitting would be close, and the man’s hearing aids would seem very quiet. All hearing aid manufacturers base their science off the average ear. But no one has the average ear. Live speech mapping is the latest innovative approach to hearing aid fitting which uses natural speech to show how effective digital hearing THEIR HEARING AIDS?

aids are in helping you to hear speech. With digital speech mapping, an actual speech signal, not tones or hissing sounds, is used to test the hearing aids while inserted in the patient’s ears. This allows for the shape and size of the patient’s ear canals to be included in the fitting process, as well as using the most important signal we hear, speech. For hearing aid fittings to be successful, speech must be appropriately amplified with respect to loudness, clarity, and comfort. Soft speech should be perceived as soft, moderate speech sounds should be perceived as moderate, and loud speech sounds should not reach the patient’s discomfort level. Speech mapping helps to provide a clear “visual” sense of the hearing loss, and the benefits or perhaps the limitations that your current hearing aids offer in relation to actual speech. While wearing hearing aids, a tiny probe microphone is inserted into the ear canal while the hearing aids are running, then a stimulus (voices/ music) is used to measure the output and shows if the hearing aids are amplifying sounds appropriately. The Live Speech Map is displayed on a monitor through easily-understood graphics so that you can actually see sounds that are missing and be presented with a clear visual sense of hearing loss and aided benefits relating to actual speech. It allows you to see graphically just how the aid is performing in a live, real world environment. Once we see what sounds you’re missing, we’ll be able to tune your personal hearing aids until it restores the missing speech patterns and tones. So, not only will you hear the difference a hearing aid makes with your speech, you’ll be able to see the sounds being restored visually as well. A successful hearing aid fitting should be a dynamic, patient-centered

DeWitt gymnast wins American Cup

DeWitt-Bath Review

Wieber preparing to compete in world championship meet By BILL McLEOD bmcleod@lsj.com

DeWITT — Once again, Jordyn Wieber is on the go. After competing in Jacksonville, Fla. March 5, the senior-elite level gymnast from DeWitt flew to Houston March 12 for some quick sessions at the U.S. National Team training center. Wieber traveled to Italy March 14 for an important international meet. When she returns, it’ll be back to her twice-a-day training sessions with her coaches, John and Kathryn Geddert, at Gedderts’ Twistars USA Gymnastics Club. For Wieber, it’s all part of the path to reach her longtime goal: to represent her country as part of the 2012 Photo by John Cheng / USA Gymnastics U.S. Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team at the London Summer Games. DeWitt gymnast Jordyn Wieber was the all-around “The Olympics have always been on my mind and a champion at the AT&T American Cup held in part my mental training. You want to have that goal to

look forward to,” she said. “But you still have to focus on what you’re doing right now and not get too far ahead of yourself.” The 2012 Olympics are still 17 months away and Wieber, who turns 16 in July, is doing her best to improve, stay healthy and be in the best possible position to earn one of five spots on the U.S. women’s team. In her first major competition since spraining both ankles at the Visa Championships late last summer and in her senior level debut, Wieber won the AT&T American Cup all-around title in Jacksonville. “It was great to be competing again. After I hurt my ankles, it took a while to heal,” she said. “It meant so much to me because it was my first event as a senior. I wasn’t expected to win but did. It was the perfect meet for me to get back into it.” John Geddert, her longtime coach, believes Jordyn is on track to realize her Olympic dream. “The Olympics are still about a year-and-a-half out and we have to dodge a lot of bullets along the way,” Geddert said. “No. 1 is staying healthy during this time. Providing she stays healthy, everything looks right on track for her to claim one of the five spots.” See

Wieber: Gymnast sets

sights on 2012 Olympics Continued from page 16

Geddert said the competition in Italy is important but a vital event is the World Championships in Japan in early October. “Right now, building an international resume is really important in the political side of the sport. Obviously, the better known you are the better your chances of getting good scores,” Geddert said. “This fall, it’s the first time she’s eligible for the World Championships. The Worlds are like the Olympics in a nonOlympic year. This will probably be the most important meet of her life thus far. All the world will be watching.” In 2012, key meets include the Visa Championships and the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in June. Wieber performs in four all-around events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise. “You’d have to say that vaulting is her strongest. She has a vault that few kids are doing and the difficulty value is very high,” Geddert said. “She scores best on vault, but in competition for the allaround title, you can’t have a weakness. She doesn’t have an event that’s weak. Last week, the balance beam probably was her best event.” Wieber said her goal this summer is “to improve on everything and maybe add

a little difficulty to my routines, but overall not make too many changes.” And to continue to enjoy the sport she’s been involved in since she was 3 years old. “Gymnastics is a love of mine and I’ve had a great time. So all the training doesn’t seem as grueling,” she said. “Each day I try to have a goal in mind and that helps me through the tough times.” In order to train twice a day, Wieber takes classes for a half-day at DeWitt High, where she is a sophomore, and she also takes online classes. “I feel like when I go out and perform, it’s really about having positive energy,” she said. “I try not to be too focused and have as much fun as I can when I’m competing.” Said John Geddert, “Jordyn has always been a natural competitor. When it’s showtime, she puts her best foot forward. Last weekend, she went out and rocked the house in her first event. “Then she made a mistake in the second event, which would have put most kids on their heels. But Jordyn buckled down and made her next two events nearly perfect and ended up winning by less than a tenth of a point. “She thrives on competition. She’s like a stallion that likes to run. You can only hold back the reins for so long because she just wants to go.”

DeWitt school in contest with rivals to raise most donations DeWITT — Students at DeWitt Junior High School will be collecting coins for a good cause, as well as for school pride. Starting this week, students at the school begin competing in a Pennies For Patients campaign. During the 10-day event, the students will collect coins that will go to the Leukemia Society to be used for treatment for children and support for their families. DeWitt Junior High is not the only school collecting donations. The school is in a friendly competition with students from Haslett Junior High School and Williamston Junior High School to see which school can raise the most in donations. The school that raises the most in donations receives a trophy. The competition begins Monday, March 21, and runs through Thursday, March 31.

Members of the community can also support the school by dropping off their donations at DeWitt Junior High School before March 31. Updates on each school’s total will be given daily and posted on the school’s electronic sign along Herbison Road. The three schools hope to collect $10,000 through the campaign. DeWitt Junior High kicked off the fundraiser with an assembly on March 3. The assembly featured Mike Neal, an ex-student at DJHS and DHS who is in remission from leukemia. Neal gave an inspirational talk to students about his journey through his treatment and the help he received from the DeWitt community. The school has planned several events to help raise funds. During the week of March 21, students will have a homeroom competition to bring in spare change. Students of the winning homeroom will receive an Olive Garden lunch right after spring break. The second place homeroom will receive lunch provided by Hungry Howies. The school will also begin a basketball bracket tournament that week during lunch.

The teams pay $24 to be in the bracket ($4 a member). During the week of March 28, the school will have special days for which the students can donate a $1 to participate. Among the special days being planned are Hat Day, iPod Day, Pajama Day, and Crazy Face/ Crazy Hair Day. The second round of our basketball
