Student trip to Japan canceled By KEN PALMER

DEWITT — The devastation in Japan has prompted organizers to cancel a planned trip there in May by 10 DeWitt eighth-graders. Coordinators for the Japanese Exchange Program decided to call off the trip as Japan tries to recover from the massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami that ravaged parts of the island nation. The DeWitt students were “absolutely devastated” to hear the trip had been cancelled, said Carol Hasse, whose son, Aaron, was scheduled to visit Koka in Shiga Prefecture. “The area the kids would have been going is safe, but they felt it was best that the kids don’t travel there at this time,” Hasse said. The students want to help their Japanese friends, so an April 17 fundraiser for the trip has become a Japan earthquake/tsunami relief dinner, Hasse said. “They are heartbroken, and they feel this sense of urgency to do something to help our friends over there,” she said. The taco dinner is set for 4:30 to 8 p.m. at Back in the Day Café in downtown DeWitt. Tickets are $8 for adults and $3.50 for children 5 and under. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross in Japan to benefit earthquake and tsunami victims. In January, 10 students from Koka in central Japan spent a week in the DeWitt area as part of the long-running student

exchange program. They were paired with the DeWitt Junior High School students who were scheduled to visit there in May. For 14-year-old Aaron Hasse, who would have stayed with Itaro Arashiro and his family in Japan, news of the cancellation was tough to swallow. “At first, they kind of told us that MSU and the high school were cancelling,” he said. “But me and all the other kids who were going (to Japan) thought we would be able to choose. It kind of took a second to realize that we actually wouldn’t go.” Hasse said he’s longed to join the exchange program since he was in fifth grade. He described the January visit with Itaro as “one of the most interesting and life-changing experiences I’ve had so far.” It’s unclear whether the trip can be rescheduled for later this year, he said. “All the money we raise will go to Japan Red Cross to start their rebuilding and to help the kids who don’t have anything anymore,” he said.

Assaults keep Bath Twp. police busy By KEN PALMER

BATH TWP. — A 44-year-old township man was jailed on an assault charge after fighting with his sister on March 25. Township police went to the man’s apartment on Main Street after he told a dispatcher that his intoxicated sister was causing programs and that he

wanted her to leave, police reports said. The officers arrived to find a room is disarray and the 55-year-old woman nursing a sore jaw and cut to the back of her head. The victim was taken by ambulance to Sparrow Hospital. The man denied there was any physical altercation. But he was taken to the Clinton County Jail on suspicion of domestic assault.

Down Syndrome kids enjoy day at Zap Zone DELTA TWP. — About 50 members of the Capital Area Down Syndrome Association escaped a cold, rainy day recently to have fun at the Zap Zone in Delta Township. They had come from all over the tricounty area on March 21 to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, the date chosen because those with the syndrome have an extra 21st chromosome. Zap Zone manager Craig Goschke said he was glad to host the group, adding that the business also donates quite a bit to silent auction fundraisers. There were games of glow-in-the-dark golf and laser tag, bumper car rides and lots of pizza and cake. And it was hard to tell who was having the most fun: the kids or the parents watching them. “It gives families something different to do, a fun, free day sponsored by CADSA,” said Carrie Moore of Mason, the group’s president. Six-year-old Lily Huckleberry of DeWitt , her shiny strawberry blond hair cascading over the side of her face, was fascinated by the stuffed animals in the “Build-Your-Own-Bear” room. Caleb Day and Willie Jenks, both 11-year-olds from Holt, couldn’t get enough of smashing into each other in the

bumper cars. Holt resident Kim Sharpe, an Eaton ISD occupational therapist, spent time watching the bumper cars with one of her students too young for a ride, 3-year-old Brady Tomlin of Eaton Rapids. Brady’s mom, Dawn, a medical social worker at the Eaton County Medical Care facility, is CADSA’s new member coordinator and the main organizer of the event. “We wanted a family event that would promote awareness of Down Syndrome and celebrate our families,” Tomlin said. She said it was the group’s first time at Zap Zone and it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. Zap Zone often participates in fundraisers, according to manager Craig Goschke, and was happy to host CADSA and provide the group a discount. By the end of the afternoon, 3-year-old Owen Kribs of Haslett couldn’t keep his eyes open. Luckily his mom, Wendi, had just the shoulder to nap on. CADSA’s largest fundraiser of the year is an event at the Potter Park Zoo scheduled this year for Sept. 18. It will include a walk through the zoo, a moonwalk and other fun activities, as well as a silent Photo by Mary Jo White auction and a raffle. For more information, log on to Six-year-old Lily Huckleberry of DeWitt checks out the stuffed animals at Zap Zone March 21. Lily and her family are part of the Capital Area Down Syndrome

Learn to recognize heart attack warning signs ST. JOHNS – We have all seen dramatic heart attack scenes on TV: the character clutches his or her chest in agony, and in the seconds before collapsing, they know for certain they are having a heart attack. While this portrayal is accurate for some, the truth is that most people, especially women, don’t have such a clear signal that something is wrong. Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States and a major cause of disability, often goes untreated because symptoms can be quite vague or mask itself as something less serious. Another barrier to awareness is that symptoms of a heart attack vary greatly in women and men, and from person to person. One person may have only minor chest pain while someone else falls to the floor in excruciating pain.

Another important difference is that men are more likely to experience sudden chest pain while women are more likely to have other symptoms in lieu of chest pain. While differences surrounding heart attacks certainly exist between men and women, everyone needs to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms and act immediately by calling 9-1-1. Signs of a heart attack in women may include: • Chest pain or discomfort (pressure, squeezing, aching, or fullness) that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back • Discomfort or pain in the shoulder, one or both arms, the back, neck, or jaw • Discomfort or pain between the shoulder blades • Indigestion or gas-like pain or heartburn

• Nausea, vomiting, or upset stomach • Shortness of breath • Unexplained weakness or fatigue unrelated to exercise • Breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, or lightheadedness Signs of a heart attack in men may include: • The classic male symptom - chest pain or discomfort (pressure, squeezing, aching, or fullness) that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back

• Discomfort or pain in the shoulder, one or both arms, the back, neck, or jaw • Shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea, or sweating • Abdominal discomfort that may feel like indigestion “It’s important to realize that we are not powerless when it comes to preventing a heart attack,” said Dr. Robert Graham, Medical Director for the MidMichigan District Health Department. “We can help

Fortier novel tells story of a modern-day Juliet Anne Fortier’s novel “Juliet” contrasts the life of present day young woman named Juliet Jacobs with that of Giulietta Tolomei, a young woman of fourteenth century Sienna. Giulietta may have been the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Juliet. Julie and her twin sister Janice had lived with their Aunt Rose since they were small children. They had been told that their parents had died in Tuscany and their great aunt went to Italy to bring them home to raise

The twins were definitely discouraged from traveling to their place of birth. Both Julie and her sister lead rather aimless lives. Although they completed col-

Journey to Jobs event to take place on April 8 ST. JOHNS — Capital Area Michigan Works! and Leap, Inc. have again partnered to host the regional employment event, Greater Lansing Journey to Jobs, on Friday, April 8. This event is free to job-seekers. Journey to Jobs is an all-day conference and employment event for job-seekers where they will spend the morning attending preparation workshops ranging in topics from utilizing social media in a job search to resume assistance to small business and entrepreneurial employment opportunities. In the afternoon, conference participants will be invited to network in the Job Zone, where 70 hiring employers will be set up in a job fair format and higher education institutions will be on hand to provide information on programs. Job-seekers are encouraged to come dressed appropriately to meet potential employers and submit copies of their resumes. Some of the participating employers include Emergent Biodefense, Sparrow Health Systems, Franchino Mold and Engineering, Gracehaven Assisted Living, Speedway, Accident Fund, and many more.

lege degrees, neither girl has a career level job. They have been led to believe that their Aunt Rose has enough money to provide for them. When Aunt Rose suddenly dies, there are some surprising provisions in her will. Janice is left her home and financial estate, while Julie is left with only a passport and a key. This is very surprising to Julie because she had always felt that if Aunt Rose had a favorite, she was the favored niece. The bigger surprise is the name on what

appears to be her passport. Instead of Julie Jacobs, she learns that she is Giuletta Tolomei. Shakespeare did not develop original plots. His plays are a rehash of history, old fables, or religious themes. The Tolomeis and the Salimbenis of Sienna were feuding families and the love story of their Romeo and Juliet was written in 1476 by Masuccio Salernitano.

Great Start program making a difference in county What’s all this “buzz” about Great Start-a Great Start to what? The answer is: life and learning! In 2004, the Great Start Initiative was launched as a movement to create public understanding that learning begins at birth. Investment in early childhood development, health, and learning is the future of Michigan’s economy. The initiative’s vision is to ensure that all Michigan children are safe, healthy, and eager to succeed in school and life. The Early Childhood Investment Corporation was founded in 2005 to lead Great Start. The Great Start system consists of collaboratives and parent coalitions. The lead agency for Great Start in Clinton County is Clinton County RESA (Regional Educational Service Agency). The collaborative is directed by Karen Black

Clerk offers extended hours for passport applications ST. JOHNS — Diane Zuker, Clinton County Clerk, is offering extended hours on Wednesday, April 20, from 5 to 8 p.m. for the purpose of accepting passport applications. As of June 1, 2009, all travelers are required to have a passport for land border crossings. This is not the first time the Clinton County Clerk’s Office has offered extra hours for passports. There have been four previous occasions the Clerk’s Office has opened for the sole purpose of accepting passport applications, all of which have been very successful according to Clerk Zuker. If these special hours do not work for you, the Clerk’s

Office accepts passport applications on a regular basis during their normal business hours. However this will all change effective May 1, due to new directives from the U.S. Department of State. Clerk Zuker noted the changes are a result of the mandates by the Department of State and will have minimal impact on Clinton County customers. Through combined efforts, the Clerk’s office has shifted the passport application processing over to the Register of Deeds office. After May 1, the Clerk’s office will continue to provide passport applicants with general information regard-

ing passports both in the office and on their web page, in addition to taking passport photographs. The only difference customers may notice is the fact that they will have to execute their applications in the Office of the Register of Deeds. Travelers who need additional information about passport regulations may visit the Clinton County Clerk’s passport web page at passport.htm or U.S. Department of State web site at http:/ / or may call the Clerk’s Office at (989) 224-5140. – From the Clinton County Clerk’s office

Habitat for Humanity seeks volunteers for ReStore location ST. JOHNS — Area residents who want to get a great work out, work with great people, and do something great for the community may achieve all of those goals by supporting Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County. The Habitat ReStore in St. Johns receives donations of new and used household and building materials and sells these items at deeply discounted prices, with the

proceeds supporting the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County. The ReStore has an ongoing need for volunteers to assist in Habitat’s mission by providing customer service, cleaning and organizing merchandise, answering phones, placing merchandise onto the sales floor, helping run the cash register, assisting with the pick up of donations and delivery of sold merchandise, and more.

Partial or full day shifts are available Tuesday through Saturday for as little as four hours per shift. ReStore volunteers may commit to once a week, once every two weeks, or once a month. For more information about volunteering at the ReStore, call (989) 227-1771. — From Habitat for Humanity of Clinton County

Gull Lake responded with four unanswered goals to go up 4-2. Goodenough scored her second goal of the game in the second half with a penalty kick.

DeWitt teams to move up to Class A next fall By BILL McLEOD

DeWITT — DeWitt will play sports as a Class A school beginning this fall. The Panthers are the only mid-Michigan school to have a change in class for the next school year. The Michigan High School Athletic Association announced the decision to move DeWitt into Class A March 29. Statewide there will be 14 schools moved up in class for the upcoming school year and 23 were moved down in class. “It was something we expected to happen at some point, we were a little surprised it happened this year,” DeWitt Athletic Director Teri Reyburn said. “But at some point we expected it would happen because our enrollment is still growing.”

“We’ll be one of the smaller Class A schools and we will have to deal with that, but that’s the way it is.” Reyburn said boys basketball will be the most impacted with the move to Class A, but she pointed out that the Panthers already play strong teams such as Sexton and Lansing Catholic in postseason tournaments. Basketball and volleyball are the only two sports where postseason tournaments are determined by A, B, C and D classes. Postseason playoffs for football are divided into eight divisions, with divisions determined on near-equal enrollments. “We will work to become a very good Class A school and represent the area as best we can,” she said. The MHSAA classifications are based on the second semester student count

data that was taken Feb. 9. There are 760 tournamentqualified schools in the state. For the 2011-12 school year there will be 189 Class A schools; 190 Class B and D schools and 191 Class C schools. Class A enrollment starts at 952 students. Class B schools have enrollments ranging from 466 to 951; Class C, 216 to 465; Class D, 215 and under. DeWitt, with an enrollment of 958, made the Class A cut by six students. This fall will also see the Panthers competing in the CAAC Red Division. Under the new CAAC alignment, DeWitt, St. Johns, Fowlerville, Ionia, Haslett and Owosso will be in the same league. Eaton Rapids, Jackson Northwest, Mason, Waverly, Charlotte and Jackson Lumen Christ will be in the CAAC Gold Division.

Panthers drop pair of onerun games to Cougars in season-opening contests By BILL McLEOD

DeWITT — The DeWitt baseball team opened the season with a pair of one-run losses to Lansing Catholic March 29. The Panthers lost the opener 3-2, then fell in the five-inning nightcap 5-4. “We were pretty happy with the way we played,” DeWitt coach Alan Shankel said. “There were a couple of first game mistakes. We talked to the boys about the margin of error, and those couple of mistakes were probably the difference in the games. It was a good learning experience for us.” Junior Nick Iacobellis scored the first run of the season for the Panthers. Iacobellis ripped a one-out infield single in the bottom of the first inning of the opening game. Two pitches later, Iacobellis got a good jump on the Cougar pitcher and teammate Austin Rusnell blasted a line-drive double to right field. Shankel waived IacobelPhoto by Bill McLeod lis home and the throw to the plate was high as Iacobellis slid in safely. DeWitt junior Nick Iacobellis slides safely into home Rusnell was the losing pitcher. Alex Leece relieved as Lansing Catholic catcher Mike DeClarke leaps to Rusnell in the fifth inning, shutting out the Cougars in the last two innings. pull down a high throw to the plate.

Trevor Bowers was the losing pitcher in the nightcap. The Panthers fell behind 3-0 in the first inning when Lansing Catholic loaded the bases with two outs. An outfield error allowed three runs to score. DeWitt had the tying run at third in the fifth and final inning, but a fly ball to center ended the Panther rally. “We had our chances in both games, but we came up a little short,” Shankel said. Shankel said the limited number of outside practices because of inclement weather has hampered Panther batters. They had just three outside practices this spring. “We didn’t see much live pitching prior to the game,” he said. “The kids are excited to play and they are ready to prove themselves. We’re young and there are going to be lots of learning opportunities.” The team will get the opportunity for outside practices when they travel to Gulf Shores, Ala. for a week of spring training. Twenty-five players from the varsity and junior varsity squads will make the trip. Funding for the trip came from fundraisers such as the annual spaghetti dinner, euchre tournaments, sales of 50-50 raffle tickets at MSU football games. The DeWitt Dugout Club also contributed to the week-long training. Shankel said the trip provides a good opportunity for the team to bond. He said last year the bus broke down and they had a six-hour delay at a West Virginia restaurant while a replacement bus was brought in. Despite the inconvenience, Shankel said the team talks and jokes about the break down. “We all remember the experience, and at the time it was kind of a nuisance…We’re making memories as we go,” he said.

Tags for all large items must be paid for at City Hall prior to pick-up day and tags must be placed on the items before they will be removed. CORRUGATED CARDBOARD, NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, GLASS, OTHER HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE and YARD WASTE WILL NOT BE PICKED UP. Granger will pick up the weekly household garbage and recycling items on Wednesday. ITEMS THAT MUST BE PAID FOR AND TAGGED The following items require prepayment and tagging before they will be removed: Refrigerator, freezers, (must have doors removed or secured) Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, or anything containing Freon. Riding lawn mower (small) drained Tractor tire (rear tire) Stoves, mattresses, springs, disassembled swing sets, sofas, chairs, water heaters, water softeners, microwaves, push lawn mowers, snow blowers, televisions, computer screens and other large items.

Remember, the purpose of this program is to remove large items. Please do not place items by the street-side for this program that would normally be removed as part of your weekly garbage pick-up.

The City of DeWitt Code of Ordinances, Section 70, Article III (Weeds and Grass), states in part, "No person shall permit weeds or grass to reach a height of eight inches on land within the city owned by or under the possession, control or occupancy of such person, including any public right-of-way or easement portion thereof." Unless otherwise excepted by this Article, all weeds and grass standing at the height of eight inches or more are declared to be public nuisances. All weeds and grass of eight inches in height or more, shall be cut. Cuttings shall not be accumulated in piles of eight inches or more in height. This notice is to inform all persons of the City’s intent to enforce this Article. A person who violates any provision of this article is responsible for a municipal civil infraction, subject to payment of a civil fine with repeat offenses subject to increased fines. Charges for weed or grass cutting shall be a lien upon the premises.
