DPS board anticipates more cuts

Twice as nice

Teaching positions, bus runs under consideration for 2011-12 Ken Palmer

DeWITT — School officials are preparing a new budget that could eliminate more than a dozen teaching positions and nine support staff as the district tries to cope with another likely cut in state aid. The proposed 2011-12 DeWitt Public Schools budget also calls for eliminating two bus runs and would leave the district with a smaller fund balance. Over the past five years, the district has trimmed about $5 million from its budget and avoided cutting programs, Board of Education President Mark Kellogg said in the board’s April 25 meeting. This is the first time it’s talked about cutting teaching positions, he said. “We just keep taking cuts and taking cuts,” he said.

“If we have to take $380,000 from the fund balance, we’re willing to do that to avoid program cuts. We’ve cut through everything else.” The board approved the framework for the budget last week but won’t actually adopt a new budget until June 13. The numbers could change, depending on what happens with the state-aid picture. “We hope this is not what we’ll be approving on June 13,” Superintendent John Deiter said. “We’re hoping that this is really a worst-case scenario and that things will get better.” The district would lose more than $900,000 in state aid under Gov. Rick Snyder’s proposed budget, which calls for cuts to school districts of $300 per student. That cut would be in addition to a $170-per-student reduction already in place. The lost revenue, coupled with rising costs for things such as retirement contributions, would leave the disSee DEWITT SCHOOLS, Page 3

DeWitt Schools trict with a deficit of about $2.3 million next school year, school officials said. But the district can reduce that shortfall to about $1.62 million by using one-time federal monies set aside to preserve teaching positions. Officials have proposed cutting 12.3 full-time teaching positions, including four in the high school, 2.3 in the junior high and 1.5 at the kindergarten level. At the high school, the cuts could affect math, science, art, industrial arts, Japanese, concert band, music appreciation and beginning guitar. The budget plan also calls for eliminating an assistant principal position at the junior high and reconfiguring the administrative staff. The support staff cuts would include two positions each from the media center and counseling staff. The district also plans to cut one morn-

ing and one afternoon bus run and to reduce building supply costs by 10 percent. The new budget would be balanced with $378,000 from the district’s fund reserves, leaving it with a fund balance of about $1.6 million, or about 7 percent of the operating budget. The Board’s approval of the budget plan means administrators can start building the official budget, said Rob Spagnuolo, the district’s finance director. The state budget picture is still unclear, and school officials will revise the budget as needed, he said. A state Senate committee has proposed cutting aid to school districts by an additional $170 per student, significantly less than the governor has proposed. But the House proposal calls for an additional reduction of $285 per pupil. “We’re just trying to do the best we can with a really bad budget picture at the state level,” Spagnuolo said.

DeWitt-Bath Review


How the federal deficit impacts Michigan A major credit rating firm recently changed its outlook on US Treasury securities from “stable” to “negative” because of concerns over our mounting federal debt. While the United States still maintains GUEST its AAA bond rating, the COLUMN fact that our debt as a percentage of gross domestic Paul product is at its highest Opsommer levels since World War II can no longer be ignored. Federal debt now stands at more than $14 trillion, very close to the limit that has been approved for us to borrow. If the debt ceiling is not raised there could be defaults as soon as July. This is an obvious cause for concern, because continually raising our debt ceiling has allowed our country to get by without a balanced budget amendment for far too long. Michigan on the other hand does have a balanced budget requirement, which makes the impact of the federal deficit upon our budget even more severe. For example, well over a third of our budget comes from federal funds, with recent trends increasing and approaching a full 40 percent. While much of this is dedicated money, in other cases Michigan has to be able to both “match” a portion of the federal money with Michigan tax dollars, and then spend it in the areas the federal government chooses or see it taken away. Too many view this funding as “free money”, money that we have now become dependent on. But it is still money that we are all ultimately accountable for, and it increasingly ties up our funds, misdirects our priorities,

and puts pressure on states to raise taxes to be able to afford to take it. Without a balanced budget requirement the federal government can give states more and more money by simply printing or borrowing it, while Michigan has fewer options and eventually has to raise taxes in order to match and receive it. This is not sustainable for Michigan, and ultimately can’t be sustained by Washington. As the recent downgrade shows there are limits to how much money can be printed and borrowed, and without the federal government adopting a balanced budget amendment we will eventually see hyperinflation or defaults. The federal deficit also was a factor in determining why Michigan simply can’t bail out local municipalities or school systems that are facing bankruptcy. Beyond the political debate over whether people want to see their tax dollars go towards bailing out the financial mistakes made by other communities, I can’t erase the debts of those communities without also putting Michigan’s overall budget at substantial risk. Federal intervention would be unlikely, because the money is not there and it ultimately would just put off an even worse day of reckoning. Simply put, it will be extremely difficult to get Michigan’s long term budget under control until the federal government faces reality and adopts a balanced budget amendment of its own. It is in all of our best interests in Michigan to recognize how federal runaway spending is not the answer to our state’s budget problems and that we need to come up with local solutions of our own. The decisions will be painful, especially in the short term, but the alternative of staying on the current path of increasing debt and wishful thinking gravely endangers our future.

The man got off the freeway at Lake Lansing Road and went to a restaurant for help, they said. He was taken to Sparrow Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Call leads to arrest A 911 call from another driver led to a drunken driving arrest on April 20. A township officer managed to stop the suspect - a 62-year-old man from London, Ont. - on I-69 near Chandler Road after the caller reported seeing the vehicle moving erratically, township police said. The suspect failed sobriety tests and went to the Clinton County Jail. Man arrested for drugs A Lansing man was arrested for crack cocaine

He eventually admitted there was crack in his vehicle and was taken to the Clinton County Jail. Suspect caught after chase. An 18-year-old man who was seen looking into vehicles at The Village apartments in Bath Township was jailed for resisting arrest after leading police on a foot chase. The incident began about 1:50 a.m. April 24, when security at the complex called to report seeing two males looking inside vehicles and checking for unlocked doors, police reports said. An officer chased one of the suspects through the complex and into one of the buildings and eventually managed to subdue and

handcuff him, the reports said. The man was cited for an alcohol offense and taken to the Clinton County Jail for resisting arrest. The second suspect managed to escape. Drivers arrested

Bath Township police made two drunken driving arrests over a four-day period. A 64-year-old man was arrested on April 19 after an officer saw him driving without headlights on Sag-

inaw Street, near Marsh Road, police reports said. Another driver had been trying to stay with the suspect’s vehicle after he saw it driving on the wrong side of the road in Meridian Township, the reports said.

Diane L. Dodge

Lansing September 11, 1948 -April 22, 2011 It is with great sadness that our family marks the passing of Diane Lynn Dodge, who died at the age of 62 after a heroic 11 year battle with ovarian cancer. She will be sorely missed by her many friends and sons, Charlie Dodge and Ben (Tristen) Dodge; grandchildren, Wil, Owen and Harper Dodge; and puppies, Puggie and Sparky. She is also survived by her sisters, Patty (Dale) Kikendall and Tracy (Randy) Ellifrits; brothers, Greg (Penny) Hinkle, Michael Hinkle and Mike (Sherrie) Jones; and stepmother, Eleanor Berning. Also surviving are her aunt, Thelma and cousin, Eugene Merritt; brother-in-law Bill Dodge and family; sisters-in-law, Susan Bennett and family, Carol Dodge; mother-in-law Jane Dodge. Diane was preceded in death by the love of her life, best friend and husband, John Dodge; parents, Lloyd and Naomi Hinkle; and father-in-law Howard Dodge. Diane and John owned the Indian Head Motel in Williamston, Dodge City, the Dodge House, Eddie O’Flynn’s and Sneekers Restaurant where she was the ultimate hostess. She also worked at Uncle John’s Pancake House, Bill Knapp’s and the Village Market in the early days. Diane enjoyed the monthly Twofers club and was a member of the MSU Rebounders and Downtown Coaches Club and an avid supporter of Michigan State University. She volunteered at Sparrow Hospital and WKAR and was a board member at Peckham Industries for many years. Diane spent much of her time over the past 11 years at her home in Canada on Lake Huron enjoying her Canadian friends and beautiful sunsets. It was a very healing place for her where she watched her grandchildren grow and her puppies thrive. Diane loved dolphins and spent many weeks each year on Hilton Head Island and in Florida where she could watch them. Diane had many mantras and sayings she lived by which strengthened her will and helped her fight her toughest battles over the years. You may have heard her say or seen posted somewhere near her "Carpe Diem" or "Believe". A celebration of her life will be held at Hawk Hollow Golf Course on Chandler Rd. in Bath at 11:00 am on Thursday, April 28th; luncheon to follow. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the John and Diane Dodge Memorial Endowment Fund for the Greater Lansing Food Bank in c/o the Capital Region Community Foundation, 6035 Executive Drive, Suite 104, Lansing, MI 48911.

BATH CHARTER TOWNSHIP ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The Bath Charter Township Zoning Board of Appeals will conduct a Public Hearing on 05/17/2011 beginning at 6:00 P.M. at the Bath Township Hall at 14480 Webster Road, Bath MI 48808. The subject of the public hearing will be the consideration of: 1. Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Durling and their builder Thad Bates request a variance to enclose their existing 4 foot x 10 foot deck. The existing deck encroaches 13 feet into the front setback. The property is located in the Low Density Zoning District at 7190 E State Road (property tax ID# 010034-200-020-00). The front setback requirement in the Low Density Zoning District is 50 feet. The applicant is seeking a variance from the provisions of Section 7.05(D)(1) of the Bath Township Zoning Ordinance. 2. Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSU Credit Union) requests an extension of their previously approved variance. The variance, approved on November 25, 2008, granted setback relief of 30 feet from the front yard on a private road. The property is located in the Developmental Zoning District at the corner of Marsh Road and Forestview Drive. Section 6.05(D)(1) of the Bath Township Zoning Ordinance requires a 50 foot front setback. MSU Credit Union was granted an extension previously on December 18, 2009. A copy of the proposed variance request is available for public inspection at the Township Offices until 5:00 P.M the day of the hearing. Please call (517-641-6728) for further information. The Bath Charter Township Hall is barrier free. Persons requiring special communications assistance should contact the Bath Charter Township Clerk, Kathleen McQueen at 517-641-6728 or in writing at 14480 Webster Rd., P.O. Box 247, Bath, MI 48808 five (5) days prior to the meeting so special accommodations can be made.
