Area program offers building rehab services By Ken Palmer

Pat, of DeWitt Township, checks out her newly renovated bathroom with volunteer Aaron Mayne, who is making improvements to Pat’s home as part of the Rebuilding Together Ingham County program. KEN PALMER | LCN

DeWITT TWP. — For most of her life, Pat Smith has been on the giving end of the charity curve, making intricate quilts, dolls and clothing and giving them away. So it was hard for the elderly township resident to ask for help with her rotting eaves troughs and soffits, where birds were getting into her attic. “To be on this end is really, really hard,” said Smith, whose real last name is being withheld by the DeWitt-Bath Review. “I’m used to being on the other end. You don’t know this is going to happen to you.” Whether she likes it or not, she’s getting more than new eaves troughs. Volunteers from Redeemer United Methodist Church are doing extensive repairs to the home as part of the Rebuilding Together Ingham County program, which rehabs homes for elderly and disabled owners. Besides soffits and gutters, Smith’s house will get a new roof, a new kitchen

counter, new basement stairs with handrails and a complete bathroom makeover. Smith’s basement sink was held up by 2x4 boards, and the floor was disintegrating because of faulty plumbing. The basement stairs are unsafe and need higher handrails. And the roof likely won’t last another year. “It’s not that she didn’t try to keep those things up,” said Aaron Mayne, a church member and team captain for the project. “She’s paid professionals over the years to do these things, and they did them wrong. Now, she doesn’t have the money to do these things.” Once known as Christmas in April, Rebuilding Together Ingham County does home repairs for older people who can’t do the work and can’t afford to pay for it. The Okemos-based organization relies on donations and volunteer labor. The repair work is usually done in a single day. This year, 18 homes are scheduled to be fixed on April 30, said Pete Bogrett, See BUILDING TOGETHER, Page 3

Car-semi collision sends woman to local hospital By Ken Palmer

DeWITT TWP. — A St. Johns woman was hurt when her

vehicle collided with a semi truck at Wood and Round Lake roads on April 11. Township police said the woman, 20, was driving north on Wood when she pulled into the path of a tractor-trailer rig heading east on Round Lake. The woman told police she didn’t remember what happened after she stopped at the intersection. She was taken to Sparrow Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries

and was cited for running a stop sign.

Suspicious car, drunken driver

Burglary call leads to arrest

A Charlotte man was arrested for drunken driving and driving with a suspended license after an officer spotted his vehicle behind a closed business about 2:55 a.m. April 15. After turning around to investigate, the officer saw the vehicle pulling onto Business U.S. 127, near Wieland Road, and eventually managed to stop it, township police said. The 30-year-old driver refused to do field sobriety tests. He was arrested for OWI, third offense, and driving on a

A Lansing man was turned over to Lansing police for several outstanding warrants after township officers were called to investigate a burglary in process on April 13. Neighbors reported seeing a man passing through a window of a home on Northdale Street around 11 a.m., township police said. The officers determined that the man, 52, was legally on the property but discovered he had three outstanding warrants out of Lansing.

Building Together the organization’s president. The DeWitt High School track team is one of the teams volunteering this year, Bogrett said. “The coach wanted to get the players involved in the community,” he said. “He’ll be the house captain.” DeWitt Township also is involved with the program this year, Bogrett said. Each project is limited to about $2,000, he said. But in Smith’s case, the bill will be higher, and the church has obtained donations to help pay for the repairs, he said. Mayne, who is on active duty with the Michigan National Guard, has been a team captain for three years. He started working at the house a week ago, replacing some of the plumbing and rebuilding the bathroom. Mayne removed the old bathtub, built a new floor and installed a shower enclosure that will be easier for Smith to use. The roof work was expected to begin this weekend and be completed by April 29. The house will get a new paint job and various other improvements on April 30, the actual rebuilding day, Mayne said. Smith, who has been on her own since her husband died in 1989, is a talented

quilter has given away hundreds of quilts in her lifetime. She once made Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and gave them to children. She also sewed dresses and donated them to the Old Newsboys. Smith has donated a king-size quilt that will be raffled off in a fundraiser for the Tri-County Office on Aging. The quilt was made in a log cabin pattern, with red in the center to symbolize a fire place, she said. “I equate rebuilding with a log cabin,” she said. Smith also made cloth panels that will be signed by volunteers working on this year’s rebuilding projects. She’ll then sew them into a quilt book adorned with the photo of Nancy Weaver, a founding member who died last year from a rare form of cancer. “We’re dedicating this rebuilding day to Nancy,” Bogrett said. “We’ve struggled a little bit this year because she did everything.” A grateful Smith said she’s overwhelmed by the generosity. “There are people out there more deserving than me,” she said, fighting back tears. “Why would anybody do anything like this for me.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 9-1-1 surcharge increase not needed

Support Cummings for Bath school board

As County Commissioners organize the conversation on the issue of supporting a referendum to increase revenue collected on each of our phones, their actions have spoken louder than their words. For years, they have chosen not to correct 9-1-1 emergency dispatch dead zones. Opposing 9-1-1 Dispatch is not my position. There is nothing more gut wrenching than a public safety officer in the middle of an emergency when her/his radio goes silent! Without 9-1-1 dispatch and/or other officers to assist with directional communication, officers are operating in the dark. The reality of this probability for our public safety officers has existed for years. Supporting the referendum or not, the 9-1-1 dispatch will not be interrupted. After collecting revenue at $2 per phone, there are millions of dollars for dead zones and a promised half- million tax dollar allocation in the 2011 budget for operations. The .25 increase is for the “need” of operational funds generating $200,000 annually. If we spend wisely, is there a need for increases? Oppose 9-1-1...No! Oppose Commissioner’s spending priorities and demand accountability...Yes!

As a country our freedoms are based on “Our Right” to play an integral part in electing people who will represent us and our interests in their various capacities. The sad truth is that approximately 10 percent of the registered voters participate in school elections. Do you know what is going on in the Bath School District and: 1. Who is on the school board and what their policies and beliefs are, 2. What the performance standards are for students

and teachers, 3. What employees contracts are for wages and benefits, and 4. What your kids are being taught? If you cannot answer these questions you have relinquished your right of representation to people you don’t know and who may very well not represent your best interests and the interests of your children and grandchildren.

Bath School Board election to take place May 3 By Tom Thelen

BATH — Residents of the Bath School District will decide who will represent them on the district’s Board of Education during the May 3 election. Three candidates are on the ballot to fill two available seats on the board, with each seat having a four-year term. Sam Bachelor and Nancy Hawkins currently hold those seats and they are running for re-election. Joining them on the ballot is Vicky Cummings. The two candidates who receive the most votes will earn the seats. Questionnaires were sent to each of the candidates for the Bath Board of Education. Their responses are below in alphabetical order.

April 24, 2011

Sam Bachelor Background information and relevant experience Bachelor: “Along with my wife Reenie, we have two children educated in the district; a son who graduated in 2006 and a daughter who will graduate in 2012. I have served in numerous capacities with both the township and the school district, as well with several recreational and volunteer organizations. I was appointed to the Board of Education in January of 2007 and the elected to a four-year term in May of that year. I previously served as Treasurer and currently as Secretary, Bachelor as well as chairman of the Buildings & Grounds Committee.” Why are you running for a position on the Bath School Board? Bachelor: “I have always felt a need to be involved in organizations that affect my family, as well as the community. At Bath Community Schools, I have discovered a position where my interest in education and my career experience in facility management can be utilized for the benefit of many. I have found the Bath School Board to be comprised of individuals with a genuine interest in the success of our district. The issues faced by any school board are not always pleasant; however they must be confronted and resolved, and it brings me great satisfaction to contribute to that process.” What are your thoughts on the current state of the Bath School District? Bachelor: “We are fortunate to work with some of the finest teachers and administrators in mid-Michigan. Of equal importance is the support consistently shown by this community for the school district. Together, these two groups have never failed to come together and respond to our efforts to provide the highest level of educational opportunities for our students. “As with all districts, Bath is faced with significant challenges in the areas of funding, assessments and ever-changing regulations, but we also have the tools, the personnel, and the planning that will allow us to successfully confront these challenges.” What do you see as the challenges facing the district in the near future? Bachelor: “In the big picture, a resolution to the ever-fluctuating funding formula is essential to all districts. Long term planning is critical to improvement, yet extremely difficult with information that changes at the whim of the Legislature. “At the local level, while individuals rise to the occa-

sion and do more with less, these solutions are not sustainable over time. Another side effect of the funding challenge is the difficulty of attracting and keeping highly qualified personnel when some of those same individuals ultimately receive the layoff notices in the spring due to their low seniority.” If elected, what issue or issues would you like to address? Bachelor: “If re-elected, I will continue to concentrate my individual efforts on the facilities and physical resources that are critical to maintaining an atmosphere of high educational expectations. In unison with the rest of the Board, I will assist in the development of strategies that allow us to continue to improve, even as our financial resources continue to shrink. I believe that as board member, we are stewards of the people’s money and now more than ever, it is our duty to provide the highest value for each dollar that we are allotted.”

Vicky Cummings Background information and relevant experience. Cummings: “I am a retired naval officer and a veteran of both the Marine Corps and Navy. I have led and managed over 160 military and civilian personnel, and have been responsible for over $3.5 million budget. “I am a graduate of the US Naval Academy (BS in math), earned a masters of administration degree in human resources from Central Michigan University, and am certified as a senior professional in human resources. “Most important. I am an at-home mom Cummings for my daughters Maggie (10th grade) and Danielle (third grade.) I am an adjunct faculty member for Baker College of Owosso, and also am a substitute teacher for Bath Community Schools.” Why are you running for a position on the Bath School Board? Cummings: “A great education is one of the most important things we can give the children of our community. I’d love the opportunity to serve my community by helping to make our schools an even better place in which our kids can learn. “The combination of my experience and education would provide a unique skill set not currently on the board. The purpose of our schools is to ensure our children are prepared and competitive for success as adults. In addition to academics, we must ensure our students have the best opportunity and environment to succeed academically; we must aggressively pursue continual improvement in this area.” What are your thoughts on the current state of the Bath School District? Cummings: “The current administration and staff is doing a very good job. That said, I believe we always have room for improvement.” What do you see as the challenges facing the district in the near future? Cummings: “The ongoing budget crisis! Bath Community Schools has seen budget problems for some time, but the expected budget cuts will further hinder the district’s ability to provide the best education for our students. Since personnel expenses are the largest part of the budget, I expect the funding decreases will result in more personnel cuts, resulting in even larger

class sizes. As a military leader, I became very adept at creatively doing more with less. This experience will provide additional tools as we address this budget crisis.” If elected, what issue or issues would you like to address? Cummings: “First is to deal with budget issues, and the many ways that cuts that must be taken will affect our schools and it’s students. I also see a need to make our schools a more safe, comfortable, and positive learning environment for all students. Specifically by addressing responsibility and accountability of our students for their academic effort and behavior in the school environment, and to more aggressively addressing issues of drugs, alcohol, and bullying in our schools.”

Nancy Hawkins Background information and relevant experience Hawkins: “I currently serve on the Bath Board of Education and the CCRESA Board of Education. This is my 11th year as board president at Bath. I am employed at Michigan School Business Officials (MSBO) as assistant executive director. MSBO is a professional association where members are involved in the management function of schools, including finance, food service, transportation, facilities, and business office operHawkins ations. “Prior to MSBO, I served as director of communications at an association management company, worked in the Michigan Senate, and was editor of the DeWitt-Bath Review. I received a bachelor of arts from Michigan State University.” Why are you running for a position on the Bath School Board? Hawkins: “My greatest interest in running for the board is to contribute and give back to my community. My 12 years serving on the board has been a personally rewarding and meaningful experience. Mark Twain said that, ‘Out of the public school grows the greatness of the nation.’ I believe in public education and I believe in Bath Community Schools. Education opens doors of opportunity for students. My goals as a board member are to ensure that students receive the best education and to instill in them the desire to continuously build on their experiences, skills and knowledge throughout their lifetime.” What are your thoughts on the current state of the Bath School District? Hawkins: “Bath School’s instructional programs, as well as our dedicated district teachers, administrators and support staff, all work together to positively impact student learning. Our school personnel collaborate in a variety of ways with families and community members for the same purpose. Our employees and the school board are dedicated to the community and the families and children we serve, and we are fortunate to have tremendous community support. “This past year Bath expanded its curriculum offerings to include, for example, Spanish in the middle school, as well as focusing on curriculum alignment, which improves student achievement.” See BATH SCHOOL BOARD, Page 7

Continued from Page 6

What do you see as the challenges facing the district in the near future? Hawkins: “Our district, like many others in the state, faces tremendous financial challenges. The governor’s recommended cuts to K-12 schools are in the range of $470 per pupil for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. We need a better solution we need to fix the system. Bath Community Schools is committed to work for solutions to our education-funding crisis. Meanwhile, we are doing what we can to adapt to the circumstances in which we find ourselves right now, while staying committed to our goal of ensuring a quality education for Bath students.” If elected, what issue or issues would

you like to address? Hawkins: “If reelected, I wish to continue the positive work that the current board, administration, teachers and staff already have in place in the school district. The continuing issue facing Bath Community Schools is one of economics. Implementing various aspects of the district’s organizational plan and assessing and evaluating educational programming to ensure student achievement will always be a top priority. The continued fostering of mutual respect between employees and administration, in conjunction with making certain that our financial resources are aligned with the district organizational plan, will lead to student achievement at Bath Community Schools.”

Leimbach novel offers a different type of war story WHAT HELEN IS READING Helen Davis

they often eat together and soon Son is using her room to develop his pictures. Susan develops complete trust in Son, relying on his assurances that certain places will be safe. On a personal level, she becomes involved with Marc Davis, a married network reporter. Marc has probably been in Vietnam too long. He has spent 23 months with the troops, longer than any of them are usually deployed. Although he is a very competent reporter, he has been there so long that he has become very skeptical of any official pronouncements. He has also developed a serious drug problem. Susan becomes committed to writing the best wartime coverage that she can produce. She goes beyond the human interest stories found in orphanages and hospitals that her magazine expected her to write. Instead, she accompanies troops on missions and

finds herself in dangerous situations. She experiences the same boredom during the quiet periods and feels the same terror the soldiers face in combat. Her first time under fire terrifies her, but she begins to

crave what she considers an authentic experience. Susan and Son go out on a troop convoy expecting a quiet day. Instead, suddenly the line of vehicles is attacked. As noncombatants, they jump into

Marti Leimbach’s novel “The Man from Saigon” tells a very different story than that of the usual war novel. She has no real connection to America’s Vietnam War and was only a child at the time that it was occurring. She has created characters and situations by relying on documents. Her focus is what happens between the characters. Susan Gifford is one of the first female war correspondents working in 1967 Vietnam. She was sent there by a small magazine and expected to cover only human interest stories. Hoang Van Son made a major effort to become indispensible to her as a photographer. He had become a familiar figure to the other reporters covering the war as he tried to sell his photographs. Most reporters are accompanied by photographers so they had no need of his services. Susan is fascinated by his work and since she works alone, they soon become a regular team. In addition to their work,

Mosquitoes also bring the threat of heartworms Once again it’s that time of year when those pesky little, blood sucking mosquitoes are looking for their next meal. Humans associate their bite with some discomfort. For cats and dogs, it is quite a different story. MosPET quitoes spread deadly heartHEALTH worm disease! Here’s the good news for both canines Dr. Stephen and felines: It is easily Thimmig prevented. When pets take the appropriate medication, as directed, neither cats nor dogs need to fear this dreaded disease. Many of youa re asking “How exactly does my pet contract heartworm disease?” The answer is simple. Mosquitoes bite an infected dog. When they get their blood meal they get a dose of heartworm larva that have been floating in the dog’s blood. These are technically known as micorfilaria, the L-1 phase. Once these tiny larvae are in the mosquito, over the next few weeks, by going through a couple of growth stages, they enter the infective phase of their lifecycle. They are now known as a L-3. When the mosquito bites its next victim, it releases

some mosquito “spit”. The spit keeps the blood from clotting. It is also the vehicle by which the L-3 larvae are deposited on the victim’s skin. Once a sufficient amount of blood has been extracted the mouthpiece is retracted. Then the infective larvae crawl into the victim. They remain in the L-3 phase for 24 to 48 hours then molt into the L-4 tissue phase that lasts for 35 to 45 days. Development continues for the next three to four months as they become mature adults that primarily occupy the right side of the heart and the major lung blood arteries. There they mate and produce L-1 live born offspring, completing the lifecycle. Unlike dogs that often survive (but are debilitated and lack endurance) with a few adult worms, cats have a very serious problem with heartworm disease. In fact just one heartworm may lead to the demise of a cat! Why? Because the immune system of the cat over reacts to the proteins from a heartworm! The good news is we have very effective and convenient heartworm preventives for both cats and dogs. I know some of you say that your cat never goes outdoors. Well, if your home is anything like ours, those pesky mosquitoes find ways to get inside. There are two monthly

Should your cat dislike the chewable, you may use the topical that can simply be applied to the back of the cat’s neck. I hasten to add that the topical is also effective for treating fleas, hookworms, roundworms, and should your cat have earmites it will effectively treat those vermin. Our canine friends may choose from a couple of proven monthly products. Most of the preventives on the market today not only prevent heartworms, they also rid the recipient of intestinal worms. In fact one also acts as a “birth control” pill for fleas (the flea gets a blood meal containing a medication that impairs normal flea egg shell development i.e. all flea eggs, subsequently produced, fail to hatch.) Your veterinarian has access to the safest and best products available for preventing heartworm disease and controlling intestinal worms in both cats and dogs.

Relay for Life set for May 13-14 ST. JOHNS — Each year, millions of people dedicated to eliminating cancer in our lifetime participate in a unique event that helps communities celebrate cancer survivorship, remember loved ones lost and fight back against a disease that takes too much. That event is the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. Please join us from 3 p.m. on Friday, May 13, to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, for the Relay For Life of St. Johns / Clinton County. Much more than a walk around a track, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life helps local communities take action against a disease that will affect one in four families. It unites participants with others who have shared a similar experience, allowing them to find hope and healing. “Relay For Life gives St. Johns and Clinton County a unique opportunity to contribute to the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives, by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back,” said Molly Day, community representative, American Cancer Society. It certainly is a community effort. Currently, there are 33 teams registered for the St. Johns event, with over 200 participants. These are dedicated volunteers who have made a commitment to the fight against cancer. These teams are working together to reach a goal of $135,000 at this year’s event, and they are well on their way.

Teams of co-workers, colleagues, family and friends camp out overnight and take turns walking laps around a track. Participants celebrate the victory of local cancer survivors during the special Survivors Lap. At dusk, they have a chance to remember loved ones lost to the disease during the poignant Luminaria Ceremony. During the Fight Back ceremony, community members are encouraged to make a pledge to save one life from cancer. A big part of the success of the St. Johns Relay For Life is the continued support from the local business and civic organizations. These businesses and civic organizations understand the importance, of giving back and paying it forward. They understand that it takes of all of us coming together as a community celebrating, remembering and fighting back. Dollars raised at American Cancer Society Relay For Life events help provide access to up-to-date cancer information, day-to-day help and emotional support 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-227-2345. They help match local cancer patients with much-needed American Cancer Society resources such as rides to treatment and tips on coping with various aspects of cancer. For more information or to learn how to get involved, visit or call Molly Day at (517) 664-1404 or Shelley Hunt at (989) 292-1768.

Brendan Plemmons was 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI. Scott Kirkpatrick was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI. Megill was the winning pitcher in the nightcap. Bath freshman Ryan Orr went 3-for-4 with three RBI. Wahrer was 2-for-4 with a triple and RBI. Stiles went 2-for-5, hit a triple and drove in three runs. Bath has cancelled or postponed games because of the


adverse weather. A doubleheader against P-W, originally scheduled for April 18, has been postponed to May 15. The Bees were also scheduled to play in the Marshall Invitational April 16, but the tournament was cancelled. “Hopefully the weather won’t cool off our bats,” Coach Rob Orr said. “We came back from Florida (over spring break) and everybody was hitting the ball. I’m getting a little anxious.” The Bees travel to Saranac April 25, then play at Portland St. Patrick April 28.

DeWitt-Bath Review


DeWitt Panthers


League outlook: DeWitt has the league’s best team and the league’s best player. The intrigue here could be the battle for second, as Charlotte is the league darkhorse while Haslett rebuilds a bit from last year’s second-place finish in the Division 2 state tournament.


Coaches predictions: 1. Haslett, 2. DeWitt, 3. Fowlerville, 4. Eaton Rapids, 5. Ionia, 6. Charlotte Top pitcher: Justin Hicks, Fowlerville Top hitter: Trent Pell, Eaton Rapids Outlook: This could be the closest league race in the area when it is all said and done. Fowlerville won the league title last season, but will have the challenge of replacing a ton of senior talent lost to graduation. Haslett, which finished third in the Gold last year, returns seven starters this year and should be amongst the league favorites along with DeWitt and Fowlerville.

DEWITT w Home course: Prairie Creek w Last season: first w Coach: Dave Koenigsknecht, fourth season w Returning starters: Alex Jones (sr.), Ryan Carey (sr.), Tyler Polulak (jr.), Davis DeKorte (sr.), Brendan Ward (sr.). w Other contributors: Mitch Overway (jr.), Peter VonSpreeken (jr.), Chris Hardy (sr.), Julian Stall (sr.). w Outlook: The defending Division 2 state champions return all five starters, so a repeat certainly is in the picture if the Panthers play as well as they did last season. Scarily enough, they could be even better. All-conference selections litter a roster led by Jones, an Eastern Michigan signee who was also an all-state player last year.

DEWITT w Last season: 24-11, second in CAAC Gold w Coach: Alan Shankel, Second season w Top Returnees: Ian Yetsko (Sr.- C), Austin Rusnell (Jr.- SS), Nick McCoy (Sr.- 2B), Trever Bowers (Sr.- P), Alec Puffenberger (Sr.- 1B) w Outlook: The Panthers graduated eight seniors from a team that took second in the CAAC Gold last season. This year’s club will be led by a group of six seniors, including Rusnell, who is one of the top hitters in the area. Shankel believes his team is inexperienced, but talented, and that they should be able to meet some of the high goals that were set out at the start of this season.



Coaches’ prediction: 1. DeWitt, 2. Eaton Rapids, 3. Haslett 4. Charlotte, 5. Fowlerville, 6. Ionia. Top player: Erica Goodenough, DeWitt Outlook: The Gold is DeWitt’s to lose, and they won’t, barring injuries or a major upset. DEWITT w Last season: 18-3-1, second place w Coach: Jamal Mubarakeh, 16th season w Returning starters: Erica Goodenough (F) jr., Emmalee Skorich (D) jr., Sarah Murdoch (M) sr., Kailyn Wegenke (D) sr., Hannah Acre (M) sr., Addy Schaar (F) jr. w Other contributors: Stephanie Twait (M) sr., Kelly McGiveron (D) sr., Morgan Rajala (M) sr., Kati Stephan (M) jr. w Outlook: The Panthers return a solid core from last year’s CAAC Cup and regional championship team, and have a decent chance to repeat both. The league title that eluded them last year is a virtual lock.



Coaches predictions: 1. DeWitt, 2. Haslett, 3. Ionia, 4. Eaton Rapids, 5. Charlotte, 6. Fowlerville Top athletes: Tori DeSira, DeWitt; Molly Duda, Haslett Season outlook: More coaches picked DeWitt, but Haslett got first-place votes.

Coaches’ predictions: 1. Haslett, 2. DeWitt, 3. Eaton Rapids, 4. Fowlerville, 5. Ionia, 6. Charlotte Top player: Emmy Virkus, Haslett League outlook: Haslett and DeWitt will battle it out at the top, but Eaton Rapids, Fowlerville and Charlotte all return several players and should field competitive teams in a deeper CAAC Gold. DEWITT w Last season: tied for first w Coach: Sue Bailey, 14th season w Returning starters: Danielle Motz (No. 1 S, sr.); Alissa Sheedy (No. 2 S, sr.); Alyssa DuGuay (No. 3 S, jr.); Caroline Wickens

(No. 1 D, sr.); Anna Hoag (No. 1 D, jr.); Morgan Smith (No. 2 D, jr.).

wOther contributors: Sam Polulak (No. 4 D,

sr.); Beth Coon (No. 2 D, sr.). w Outlook: Bailey says there will be new challenges for the Panthers this season, including only one player coming back to the same flight from last season. All the returning singles players will move up a flight, leaving Motz in the top spot.



Coaches’ predictions: 1. DeWitt, 2. Haslett, 3. Charlotte, 4. Fowlerville, 5. Ionia, 6. Eaton Rapids Top player: Alex Jones, DeWitt

DEWITT w Last season: first w Coach: Kelly Williams, fourth year w Top returnees: Tori DeSira (jr.-LJ, hurdles), Kayla Hanses (jr.-MD), Lauren Rademacher (jr.-dist.), Jessica D’Haene (jr.-MD), De’Anna Majors (soph.-sprints), Sophia Lantz (sr.-sprints) w Other contributors: Karla Billingsley (jr.throws), Samantha Gallagher (sr.-throws), Kayla Lewis (jr.-throws) w A closer look: Williams believes adding a solid group of freshmen to a strong group of returning athletes will help the Panthers be a contender to repeat as league champions. In addition to DeSira (see athletes to watch), Hanses was first in the league, second at regionals and the honor roll meet and ninth at the Division 2 state meet in the 3200 in addition to taking third in the league in the 800. Majors was also fourth in the 200 and fifth in the

100, Rademacher fourth in the 1600 and D’Haene fifth in the 400 at the league meet.



man was first at regionals, second in the honor roll meet, third in the league and 10th at state in the long jump plus fourth in the league in the 400. Fitzner won the discus, and Pabst took fourth in the 300 hurdles at the league meet.


Coaches predictions: 1. Haslett, 2. Ionia, 3. DeWitt, 4. Charlotte, 5. Eaton Rapids, 6. Fowlerville Top athletes: Chris Theis (DeWitt), Jake Lampman (Haslett), Ranga Mutatu (Haslett) Season outlook: Ionia has exceptional distance runners, and DeWitt some talented individuals, but Haslett may have strength in the most areas. DEWITT w Last season: second w Coach: Bob Acre, first year w Top returnees: Chris Theis (sr.-HJ), Tyler Sherman (sr.-LJ, sprints), Luke Pabst (sr.-hurdles), Kyler Koets (sr.-hurdles), Ian Fitzner (sr.-throws), Sam Brown (sr.throws), Ryan Makinen (jr.-sprints), Josh D’Haene (jr.-dist.), Brad Parsons (so.sprints) w Other contributors: Uriah Rogers (jr.sprints), Zach Robinson (so.-MD), Derek Butcher (so.-dist.), Jacob Lange (jr.throws) w A closer look: The Panthers’ Theis finished runner-up in the league, regional and honor roll meet in the high jump as well as 13th in the Division 2 state finals. Sher-


Coaches’ predictions: 1. Eaton Rapids, 2. Ionia, 3. Charlotte, 4. DeWitt, 5. Fowlerville, 6. Haslett Top pitcher: Erin Binkowski, Eaton Rapids Top hitter: Erin Binkowski, Eaton Rapids League outlook: Eaton Rapids has won at least 25 games each of the past six seasons and looks to be the team to beat in the Gold. Ionia, Haslett and Fowlerville should be competitive, each with several skilled players returning. Charlotte and DeWitt will be rebuilding, each with several new players getting varsity experience. DEWITT w Last season: 19-16, third w Coach: Mike Church, fifth season w Returning starters: Brooke Church (OF) sr., Andrea Klein (OF) sr. w Other contributors: Clara Kangas (C) jr., Michelle Jonas (P) soph., Kaylie Stripling (3B) soph., Katie Batterbee (2B) jr. w The Panthers were senior-loaded last year and return only two starters. Coach Church will be looking for a successful season with a lot of players gaining varsity experience along the way.

Pewamo Westphalia will have the challenge of replacing a ton of talent from last year’s team, but should be a contender for a top spot. Fulton returns a host of starters and should finish in the upper half of the league standings along with Fowler.

Bath Bees

24-5 record last season and both sported ERA’s under 2.00. This team is loaded from top to bottom with talent and experience, as they have four separate four-year varsity starters on the roster.

Panthers win all three tournament contests; improve to 4-3 overall By Bill McLeod

EAST LANSING — DeWitt soccer, after a 1-3 start to the season, stepped up at the East Lansing Invitational, winning all three game April 16. The Panthers knocked off Mason 2-0 in the first game of the tournament. Both teams battled through a scoreless first half in a physical game where three yellow cards were issued. In the second half, DeWitt defender Kelly McGiveron battled through the Bulldog defense, passing to Erika Goodenough, who fed the ball to Taylor Radel for first goal of the game. DeWitt’s second goal came off a Goodenough pass to Addy Schaar. The Panthers kept the ball on the Bulldog’s end of the field throughout the game with DeWitt goalkeeper Lauren Earley stopping only two Mason shots. In the second game DeWitt defeated CAAC foe Eaton Rapids 4-0. Natalie

Knauf opened the scoring at 5:07 of the first half off a pass from Stephanie Twait. Schaar scored the next two Panther goals, the first with an assist from Callen O’Keefe and the second on a feed from Katy Stephan. Goodenough took a pass from Kailyn Wegene for the final score at 29:08. Earley recorded three stops in the shutout win. DeWitt finished strong with an 8-1 win over host East Lansing. The Panthers built a 4-0 lead on three goals by Addy Schaar and a goal by Erika Goodenough. The Trojans scored as time was running out in the first half. Goodenough took over the scoring duties in the second half, booting in three scores. The first came off a pass from Schaar at the 1:00 mark of the second half. Goodenough scored her third goal of the game on an assist from Twait, and scored her fourth goal with an assist from Morgan Rajala. McGiveron scored the last goal of the game with 2:20 left, taking a pass from Rajala and hooking the ball into the left side of the net. Earley had two saves. DeWitt’s record improves to 4-3. The Panther junior varsity beat East Lansing 4-1 and Eaton Rapids 6-0. They battled Mason to a scoreless tie.
