Canoe race highlights Meadows celebration By KEN PALMER

The crew of “SS Guppy III” puts the finishing touches on their craft for the Cardboard Canoe Race. The event was part of the Granger Meadows Celebration on July 16.

DeWITT TWP. — With a tall mast adorned with paper flags and a paper seagull at the top, Judy Maidlow’s watercraft looked more like a miniature sailing ship than a cardboard canoe. But once on the water, Maidlow’s “Lady Sailor and First Mate” couldn’t keep up with Jake and Josh Whitney’s “Lil Chub,” a flat-bow skiff resembling a World War II landing craft. While ‘Lil Chub” zipped around the course at Granger Meadows Park in record time, “Lady Sailor” foundered and sank, forcing Maidlow to swim the course, boat in hand. “I thought I was going to do a little bit better,” said a disappointed Maidlow, of Watertown Township, who built the boat with her son, Robert, of DeWitt.

nances could go to the township boards for adoption later in the month. Many Michigan communities have passed ordinances aiming to regulate medical marijuana operations since the state’s Medical Marijuana Act was passed in 2008. Officials in Bath and DeWitt, which use the same planning consultants and attorneys, attended a joint briefing on the law on June 23 in DeWitt Township. The proposed ordinances in Bath and DeWitt are virtually identical and would amend current zoning laws to govern med-

ical marijuana operations. Under both draft ordinances, registered caregivers would be allowed to grow a legally permitted number of plants at their home, as long as it is located at least 1,000 feet from any school, church, day care facility or drug rehabilitation center. No signs or advertisements would be allowed outside a home occupation business, and there capild be no change in the exterior appearance of the residence. Caregivers would have to register with their local police department and identify the patients they are caring for.

The quirky Jeff Baumann Cardboard Canoe Race has become a signature event at DeWitt Township’s annual Meadows Celebration, held on the third Friday in July to celebrate the opening of the park six years ago. Contestants have 30 minutes to build a canoe from corrugated cardboard and packaging tape, then paddle around a buoy on a small pond in timed heats. This year, separate heats were added for those who wanted to build canoes offsite using the same materials. More than a hundred people gathered along the shore to watch the event, cheering and jeering as the canoes “raced” around the course. Brothers Jake and Josh Whitney, ages 16 and 14, were entered in the competition by their mother and named their boat See

Proposed ordinances would allow medical marijuana


DeWITT — Officials in Bath and DeWitt townships are preparing to adopt ordinances that would allow for limited growing and use of medical marijuana but would not provide for so-called dispensaries or compassion clubs. The planning commissions in both townships are scheduled to hear public comments on the draft ordinances early next month. If those boards recommend it, the ordi-

Registered caregivers who want to grow marijuana for more than one registered patient would have to locate the operation in areas zoned for industrial development. Those caregivers also would have to be registered with police and be subject to periodic inspections. Planning officials said a study would have to be conducted to ensure that the proposed separation distances from schools and churches would not effectively exclude activities authorized by the See Ordinances/page 8

- ‘Lil Chub - after a type of Slim Jim sausage. The brothers had the best time for an off-site build, completing the course in 72 seconds. A team that included Duane Fritz, a truck driver for Granger, won the on-site build competition in SS Guppy III with a time of 48 seconds, Fritz’ team also won the competition last year. The DeWitt Area Recreation Authority summer program entered a canoe designed partly by children in the program. Program Coordinator Chad Stevens said the kids helped him build the craft and decorated the hull with colorful designs. “I decided that if it floats, I’m going to take the credit,” Stevens joked before the contest. “If it sinks, I’m going to give the credit to the kids.” The DARA boat stayed afloat but lost its heat to an entry by Four Seasons. The canoe race is named for the late Photo by Ken Palmer Jeff Baumann, a township trustee who Judy Maidlow relaxes in front of “Lady Sailor and First Mate” before the championed the Granger Park project. cardboard canoe race at Granger Meadows Park on July 16. “Every year it builds (in popularity and interest), said Tonia Olson, communi-

The festival also included inflatables and games for children, a poker walk, a scavenger hunt, a watermelon-eating contest, music by Solstice and a big fireworks display. Granger, which built and donated the 76-acre park to the township, pays half of the estimated $18,000 cost of the celebration. The township collected $7,836 in donations to help cover its share of the cost. “The board had considered not having the Granger Meadows event because of the tight economic times, but then decided to that it was important for the community to have something like this to enjoy,” said Rod Taylor, DeWitt Township manager. Taylor said the township’s share was reduced through the $7,836 in donations, of which $4,445 were given in cash by local businesses and private individuals, and the rest were in-kind donations.

Letters to the editor Make an informed decision in this election

The letters to the editor section of this paper offers citizen testimonials as to why we should vote for the upcoming library millage or police/fire millage. Quite often the words “informed decision” are somewhere in the text. I have found that the State of Michigan Dept of Treasury website offers local government unit audits as far back as five years! These are actual annual audits for all facets of local government including police and fire departments and the DeWitt Public Library. If you really want to see how your money is being spent and make an “informed decision”, visit the Department of Treasury home page, click on Local Government Services on the left side of the page, click on Local Unit Audit Reports enter the year and Clinton County.

Library offers wide variety of programs

Summers, during my childhood, were spent in enchanted kingdoms and foreign lands. Books were the vehicle of my travels. Public libraries, funded by the taxes of our citizens, made my adventures possible. Public libraries are the one true source of information for the people. Radio and television, being privately owned, can filter what programs and news you hear. The Internet connection, through a library, is unique, and gives you access to academic websites that would not be available unless you knew the exact address. The DeWitt library is unbiased and open to all. Renewing the current millage continues these services with no additional costs to your budget. We cannot lose our public libraries, the only fair source of information for all. Please vote “yes” to renew our current millage and keep services and hours at the levels they Trebesh has earned our support are now. Mr. Michael Trebesh is the most diversified and qualified Laura Webb, DeWitt candidate for the Michigan State Senate. After a thorough review of Mr. Trebesh’s website at and hearing his position on critical issues, I am thoroughly convinced he has earned our support and vote. Mr. Trebesh has a strong conviction in the beliefs and traditions of our community. He is unwavering in his belief of God, country, family, duty, fairness and common sense. Through out his decades of commitment and success in business and education Mr. Trebesh has been a team builder and strives for unity. Mr. Trebesh is highly energized and will work tirelessly for our interest and future. The good citizens of the Clinton, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties need a strong, clear and competent voice in Lansing representing us. I am confident Mr. Trebesh will get the job done as our next senator. I like Mike and Free refills on all sizes of pop and popcorn! I am sure you will too. Please join me in voting for our best Tickets and showtimes available at both interest. Vote for Trebesh. Kathy Bratschi, Bath and 316-9100

I strongly urge voters in the DeWitt Charter Township, City of DeWitt, Watertown Twp, and St. Johns to get out and vote on Aug. 3. Vote “Yes” for the millage renewal to continue providing services to the residents of the DeWitt Library District. This millage is not a new tax or tax increase. This is the same millage and same level of taxation that property owners have been paying for the last 12 years. It is important to note, circulation has increased by 50 percent in the last 12 years, while the library millage rate has remained the same. I personally am amazed at the quality of programs our library offers the community. A majority of Michigan residents are displaced employees due to the economic changes that are occurring. I am trying to upgrade my skills to reenter the workforce, thus currently I am finishing up my college degree. I could not be doing this as easily if I did not have full access to our library. The college I am attending does not

have a color printer available, our DeWitt Library does. This summer every time I have come up to use the computers, printers, and have a quiet place to study. I have been able to bring my 8 year old daughter with me and they always have summer games, crafts, story time and plenty of things for her to do. She is learning the computer and is able to practice and hone her skills also. We both love to read and check out books and videos every week. This quality activity has not only increased our knowledge, introduced us to new people, and added to our relationship as mother-daughter. Mentoring by example is a wonderful way to encourage her to test her creativity, and expand her imagination. Thank you DeWitt library and helpful staff. It takes a community to raise a child. Vote “Yes.” Kathleen Delaney, DeWitt

Letters to the editor I’m urging the renewal of the millage for the DeWitt Library in the August election. Despite its cramped quarters, reduced hours and other cost-cutting moves, the DeWitt Library is doing a fantastic job of delivering services to its many patrons. The library offers computers, reading programs for children, adult education programs, books, movies, CDs, a large variety of magazines and newspapers and other services too numerous to cite. Your continued support of this facility will help immeasurably to provide the DeWitt-Bath area with a top-grade library service. Norm Robison DeWitt

Hoekstra knows ag industry

On Tuesday, Aug. 3, Republicans will be selecting their nominee for Governor. I wish to take this opportunity to encourage voters to please support Pete Hoekstra. Pete Hoekstra understands agriculture and what the industry needs to be successful including getting the government out of the way to give the industry the freedom to operate, invest and grow. Pete has represented West Michigan in Congress which has a variety of commodities including apples, blueberries, cherries, corn, dairy, forestry, turkeys, hogs, soy beans, Christmas trees and others.

5 DeWitt-Bath Review

Library provides many services

Michigan’s food and agriculture industry is a foundation block that our state can build upon. It is one industry that is growing in Michigan. Agriculture needs to be promoted, not demeaned. Imagine where this industry could be today with an administration that understood agriculture! As governor, Pete Hoekstra will work with the people and the State Legislature to overhaul the tax code, cut expenses and provide Michigan families and businesses a net tax cut. As governor, Pete will install an administration that recognizes the importance of agriculture and works with the industry, not a government that takes food and agriculture for granted, burdens the industry with unnecessary regulations and tries to dismantle the Michigan Department of Agriculture. Please join me in voting in the Republican primary for Pete Hoekstra for Governor on Tuesday, Aug. 3. Robert Craig St. Johns

Sparrow Clinton honors DeWitt staff member ST. JOHNS — DeWitt resident Marge Simon, LPN, a 34-year Sparrow Associate, has been named the Sparrow Clinton Hospital July/ August Healthcare Star. A nurse with the Sparrow Clinton Hospital Patient Care Services Department, Simon earned nomination by her peers for her exceptional dedication to service, expertise in her field and compassionate patient care. “Marge has always provided outstanding nursing care to our patients at Sparrow Clinton Hospital,” said Mariah Hesse, Patient Care

Services Director. “She is a great patient advocate who goes the extra mile by consistently demonstrating care and compassion.” Simon’s hobbies include painting, scrapbooking, reading, sewing and traveling with her husband and friends.

BATH TWP. — A Lansing man has been charged in three township burglaries after a lengthy investigation by several police agencies. Bath Township police said the suspect, 27, is part of a group of people believed responsible for a larger string of break-ins, including seven in Clinton County. The ring was broken when another suspect, 21, was arrested by DeWitt Township Police and agreed to cooperate in the investigation, police said. That man admitted that he and other suspects were responsible for numerous burglaries, including the three in Bath Township, according to Bath police reports. As part of a deal with prosecutors, the 21-year-old man will not be charged in the Bath break-ins but will be responsible for restitution to the victims, Bath Township police said. In return, he will have to testify truthfully against co-defendants.

Several lives mesh in unexpected ways in Sebastian Faulks’ novel “A Week in December.” The author studied London financial markets well enough to write a description of buying and selling stock options that could appear well researched if was in an economic textbook. The two central characters are each involved in their own plan that will produce a cataclysmic effect in 2007 London. John Veals is a self made hedge fund manager who expects to make billions of pounds by forcing the collapse of a London bank. His manipulations are the type of actions that caused the subprime mortgage banking collapses in America. Hassan al-Rashid is the


involved in the investigation of a subway accident, acting for the driver, Jenni Fortune. Gabriel becomes fascinated with the virtual reality world in which Jenni is an active role player Gabriel is also trying to understand the mind of his institutionalized schizophrenic brother. Gabriel has been studying the Koran as he is prepping for a trial and to him the visionary statements of the Koran seem to have similarities to his brother’s ravings. This novel portrays a world in which wealth is overwhelmingly important, but love is ultimately the most important factor.

Bath Twp. seeks millage renewal Aug. 3 By KEN PALMER

BATH TWP. — Township voters will be asked to renew a 3-mill levy for police and fire protection when they go to the polls for the Aug. 3 primary election. The separate millage for public

safety has been in place since 1980 and comes up for renewal every two years, It provides about $1.12 million for the two departments combined, township officials said. Police and fire services account for nearly half of the township’s annual operating budget. The proposed police budget for

2010 is about $1,346,000, while the fire department’s proposed budget is about $248,000. Each mill levied equals $1 per $1,000 of taxable value. The ballot language for the millage request is available on Clinton County’s election division website, township officials said.

DeWitt-Bath Review


Bath Farmers Market has successful opening BATH — After more than a year of planning, the Bath Farmers Market opened for business on Thursday, July 15, at James Couzens Memorial Park in Bath. Threatening clouds, a thunderstorm warning and a brief deluge of rain didn’t deter the nearly 700 shoppers who visited the park during the fourhour market, and many of the market’s seven vendors sold out or nearly sold out of their products. When the Bath Farmers Market Task Force started planning for a market in early 2009, its main goal was to create a community gathering place that helped connect consumers with their local farmers, but also helped connect neighbors to neighbors. Jeff Garrity, Bath Township Treasurer, who also serves on the Bath Farmers Market Board Member and is a vendor at the market, thinks the goal was reached at this first market. “What a great day! I’m still smiling,” said Garrity. “The vendors I talked to were surprised and happy with the turn out, and it was great to see people standing around talking with friends and neighbors. I think we’ve started something good that

will be here a long time.” Area farmers and specialty food producers offered products ranging from fresh produce, tortilla chips and salsa, to artisan goat cheeses, eggs, baked goods and dip mixes, and much more. Bath resident and folk musician Mike Ross entertained the crowd performing what he calls, “old time music”; and high school students Kate Garrity and Amanda Chaffee volunteered at the Kids’ Corner, which featured face painting, bubbles and coloring. The Friends of the Bath Farmers Market recruited 23 new members and will be at future markets to sell Tshirts, recruit volunteers and raise funds to support the market. Funds raised will be used for promoting the market and purchasing market supplies. At the end of the market, Dru Montri, who chairs the Bath Farmers Market Board and also operates Ten Hens Farm in Bath with her husband, Adam, thanked fellow board members, vendors, the Friends of the Bath Farmers Market and volunteers for creating a fantastic first market. “I am thrilled about the

success of our opening day and look forward to doing it all over again next Thursday,” said Montri. “Thank you to everyone who has invested time and energy to this market.” The market will be held every Thursday, 3 to 7 p.m., year-round. From May to October, the market will be held at Couzens Park, just north of the intersection of Clark and Webster Roads, across from the Bath Middle and Elementary Schools, in downtown Bath. The market will move to the Bath Township Community Center on Park Lake Road from November through April. The Bath Farmers Market is still seeking a market master and additional vendors. For more information about the market, the market master position, the Friends of the Bath Farmers Market, or for a vendor application, visit You are also invited to become a Facebook friend of Bath Township Farmers Market and check out photos from the first market, post comments, and visit links to vendors’ Web pages. — From the Bath Farmers Market committee

Inspired by learning

When we think about our future, we see everyday pleasures like vacations and the good health needed to enjoy them. So when we created our vision, we were inspired to set our sights high: to be recognized as a national leader in quality and patient care. To get there, we’ve made bold changes at Sparrow Clinton Hospital like updating our facilities to provide an even better experience for patients. We also joined forces with Thoracic and Cardiovascular Institute (TCI), to bring leading heart research, experts and technology to St. Johns. And that’s just the beginning.

Pets need adequate hydration during hot weather The value of exercise can not be understated for those who want to help their pet and themselves sustain a good quality of life. Maintaining mobility, keeping the participant’s weight down (both pet and owner), and a much needed time for socialization are all benefits owners realize by keeping their canine friend fit. This time of year, more so now than at cooler times, a little extra caution is in order. One of the first concerns is to maintain adequate hydration. We all know heat, especially when coupled with high humidity, is stifling! So, what should you do to help your pet, and yourself, avoid suffering from heat exhaustion? Take those walks early in the morning or after the sun goes down. These are appreciably cooler times of the day making it much less dangerous.

You may want to have a source of fresh, clean water available. Pets, as do people, need water for two basic reasons. For pets, as the air moves over the surface of their Pet tongue it health evaporates whereas Dr. Stephen people just R. Thimmig plain sweat. The evaporation that occurs is a major part of an animal’s cooling process. Adequate hydration helps both pets and people maintain proper circulation. This further helps cool them and allows the kidneys to get rid of various waste products. If you are walking in the

dark, have your pet sport a flashing Safe-TTag. This is an attachment for their collar that emits a bright flashing light that is visible for up to one half- mile! With regular use, the batteries generally last about a year. This bright red flashing strobe makes travel through neighborhoods significantly safer for both the pet and the person at the end of their leash. You are only kidding yourself if you think the few miles they walk is going to burn enough calories to cause them to need to eat more. Please be aware, at this time of year, most wild animals will go two or three days between meals! We all know that these wild animals, if they are fat, become meals for those higher up the food chain. Innately they know this so, even though there is an abundance of food available, they do the

un-American thing and walk away. Here is the skinny. Walk during times of the day that will be easier on the pet and yourself. Provide frequent access to plenty of fresh, clean water. Do not be upset if your pet refuses to eat so long as their tail wags and they come when called. If you are walking when it’s dark, have your pet sport a Safe-T-Tag flashing strobe. Finally, have a good time relaxing and solving the problems of the world with your four-legged “best friend.” For more information about this and other pet health concerns, contact an expert, your veterinarian. Dr. Stephen R. Thimmig leads an incredible Health Care Team at Zeeb Pet Health Center and Three Shears for Pets. Feel free to visit them on the Web at

OSA warns seniors to be on guard for scam artists LANSING – The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging (OSA) today warned citizens about recent reports of scam artists contacting seniors in an attempt to obtain personal information by asking them to reveal Medicare, Social Security or bank account numbers, or pay a fee to receive a $250 Medicare rebate check. “We want to protect our seniors and are warning them to be on the alert for scam artists,” said Sharon Gire, Director of the OSA. “These one-time Medicare rebate checks

will be mailed to eligible individuals automatically and if contacted, seniors should not provide their personal information.” The DHHS and OSA are urging Medicare beneficiaries not to provide personal information to anyone representing themselves as a “Medicare” or “government” worker if contacted by phone, mail, or in person in exchange for a $250 Medicare rebate check. These one-time rebates are automatically mailed to Medicare recipients when they reach the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage gap, also known as the ‘donut hole.’

A Medicare recipient will receive their $250 rebate check within 45 days of reaching the $2,830 expenses threshold for prescription drugs during a calendar year. Once that threshold is met the recipient must pay 100 percent of the prescription drug costs up to $3,610, including deductibles and co-pays, before receiving low-cost Medicare drug coverage at the catastrophic level. The $250 rebate check is intended to help citizens offset the cost of prescription drugs. The rebate checks have resulted from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care

Act passed by Congress and signed by President Obama earlier this year. The new law addresses the elimination of this ‘donut hole,’ with further assistance phased in over the next few years. Everyone who falls into the ‘donut hole’ during 2010 will receive a $250 check no matter what his or her level of income. This money is tax free, and there are no requirements on how the money must be spent. For further information, call the national Medicare office at (800) 633-4227. In Michigan, call MMAP at (800) 803-7174. — From the Michigan OSA

Webb Road/BR-127 accident injures two Counterfeit bill


DeWITT TWP. — An elderly Haslett woman and a Muir man were treated for minor injuries after an automobile accident on July 12. The woman, 81, told officers she was on her way to a high school reunion when she pulled into the path of a truck on Business U.S. 127 at Webb Road, police reports said. Both she and the truck driver, a 31-yearold Muir man, were taken to Sparrow Hospital for treatment. The woman was ticketed for failing to yield.

Meanwhile, a local gas station reported that a customer tried to pass a counterfeit $5 bill on July 14. A clerk at the gas station told township police that a young woman handed him a $5 bill and walked outside to pump gas. After noticing it was a fake, he walked outside and told her she couldn’t have any gasoline. The woman walked back inside and asked the clerk to return the bill. He refused, and the girl fled the station before he could get her identification, police reports said.

Clinton County begins Reverse 9-1-1 service ST. JOHNS — Clinton County Central Dispatch/9-1-1 has a new way to get the word out in the event of an emergency within Clinton County. Clinton County Central Dispatch/9-1-1 has implemented the patented Reverse 911® Interactive Notification System, manufactured exclusively by Sigma Communications LLC, a subsidiary of PlantCML. Reverse 911® is an outbound notification system used for time-sensitive, mass distribution of messages. The system is particularly effective in time of crisis when rapid communication to a targeted group of citizens or emergency responders is critical such as natural disaster evacuations, missing person alerts, terrorism threats, escaped felons, water contaminations, and hazardous material incidents. Reverse 911® combines 9-1-1 calling data and GIS mapping technology to geographically target and notify affected individuals. 9-1-1 telecommunicators simply outline the targeted area on the map, record a voice message, and then launch the session. Reverse 9-1-1® then dials all the phone numbers in the designated calling zone. Notification results are immediately available which provide call-session statistics. This real-time detail is extremely helpful during door-to-door evacuations. In order to accommodate the many residents of Clinton County that have elected to discontinue their traditional landline telephones, and opt for various wireless devices, we now offer a free online gateway. The Self-Registration Portal© (SRP) from PlantCML permits residents to sign up to receive Reverse 911® alerts by text mes-

sage, telephone (landline, VoIP, or cell), or e-mail. The SRP appears on the Clinton County Central Dispatch/9-1-1 web page, located at: LawJustice/CentralDispatch911.aspx. Here, residents can complete a short form, supplying their contact information, address, etc., and determine their preferences for notification (i.e., emergencies, non-emergencies, both). Locations are quickly plotted using Microsoft® SRP Bing™ maps, and appears on the SRP’s digital, street-level display. If the positioning of the map point is incorrect, perhaps due to a typographical error, the person can easily reposition the pin to the exact location of the address. Participants may return to the SRP via secure login and update their personal contact details as often as needed in order to ensure data accuracy. GeoCast Web seamlessly geo-codes this information and saves it to the application address database on a scheduled basis, further ensuring notification integrity.

LANSING — Volunteers who gave more than 700 hours of their time to the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center were recently honored by the Court as “ambassadors for the judicial branch.” The volunteer docents guide school groups and other visitors through the 3,800 square foot education center, located on the first floor of the Michigan Hall of Justice. Volunteers’ responsibilities included demonstrating interactive computer games and other hands-on activities at the center, including a virtual courtroom. Other duties included working behind the scenes on workshops and special programs. At a recent volunteer recognition event, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly, Justice Elizabeth A. Weaver, and Justice Stephen J. Markman represented the entire Court in thanking the docents for helping to educate the public about Michigan’s justice system. In expressing the Court’s appreciation, Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly noted, “You have been outstanding ambassadors for the judicial branch of government, helping young visitors and their parents and teachers understand how Michigan courts function.” First-year volunteers included Patricia Babcock of Lan-

sing, Carl Gallagher of Dimondale, Sara Kanya of Holt, Kathy Mascoli of Mason, Greg Pollack of Lansing, Frank Sydnor of Lansing, and Jane Wilensky of Okemos. Also commended for leadership and continued service were returning volunteers Jackie Adams of Charlotte, Ilena Alvarez of Lansing, Elizabeth Ayoub of St. Johns, Al Chapman of Lansing, Candy Chatfield of Lansing, Jacob Drenovsky and Veronica Drenovsky of Durand, Cassandra Heos of East Lansing, Mary Pat Jaracz of Okemos, Betty Krohngold of East Lansing, Elizabeth Mead of Birmingham, Tom Ryan of Bath, and Rose Wright of Haslett. Learning Center Coordinator Rachael Drenovsky said that the center relies on its volunteer docents. She encouraged new volunteers to share their time and expertise with tour groups, stressing that docents do not need a background in education, law, or government. “That kind of experience is helpful but certainly not necessary,” Drenovsky said. “What’s essential is having an interest in the law and a passion for sharing knowledge and enthusiasm with others.” Volunteers attend a series of three-hour orientation sessions and commit to a minimum of eight hours per month.

Yetsko said the board has always sought to provide the best possible experience for the players and their families. “You loved playing on good fields, loved the dugout, playing in the championship games and winning the trophy,” Yetsko said. “We tried to create an atmosphere where kids in recreation leagues still had the opportunity to play in that tournament and win a trophy.” Howell said that with equipment donations, discounts and a lot of volunteer help, they were able to pull off a field resurfacing project for about $2,000 that should have cost about $30,000. “I feel strongly about giving back to the community I live in. My fondest memories were working on the fields with my son Nick, together we would spend 30 hours a week improving the fields,” Howell said. “When most boys are home playing X-Box, my son was on a field giving back to the community. Not only should we teach the fundamentals of baseball, we should also teach life lessons as well. We should send the junior varsity and varsity programs good people as well as athletes.” DYBSA runs fund raisers such as a Texas Hold-Em tournament, pizza sales and concession sales raising money to build a storage shed and purchase other maintenance equipment. A few years ago they started holding tournaments for travel teams which generated funds from registrations and concession sales. Yetsko said while maintaining their standard offerings of softball and baseball for area youth, they have developed travel teams for those players that want to play at

DEWITT — Early training that DeWitt area youth receive on the diamonds of the DeWitt Youth Baseball and Softball Association has taught them the fundamentals of the game, preparing many of them to play at the high school varsity level and beyond. “A lot of the success that we had at the high school level comes from the time and commitment that was put in at the lower levels,” former DeWitt baseball coach Mike Brya said. “When you look at the better programs in the Lansing area, there is a correlation between the programs at the high school level and the programs that are well established at the lower level. It’s about teaching kids the game and playing it the right way.” The DYBSA has had a tremendous growth spurt over the past few years, growing from about a 150 kids a year to almost 500 for the past several seasons, thanks in part to the efforts of four board members who retired last fall. The four directors, Kevin Walker, Mark Stygles, Nick Yetsko and Mark Howell have put in a combined 28 years of volunteer work with the DYBSA. “That’s one thing that I am very proud of is the number of kids participating kept going up and up every year.” said Howell, who was in charge of field improvements and maintenance for the past five years. “I think the reason we got so much accomplished was because we had a good leader in place (Yetsko). We were doers, so many organizations are just thinkers, we were doers and we got a lot of things done.” Yetsko severed as president for about 10 years. “I came onto the board when it was in its infantile state,” Yetsko said. “Now DYBSA is the largest parent-run organization in the DeWitt area.” Throughout the rapid growth, the board members and other volunteers sought to improve the facilities. The DYBSA has four fields. In the past few years, most of the fields have been upgraded with new soil and sod, improved drainage, fencing, new dugouts at several of the fields, scoreboards and other improvements. Much of the improvements were done by the DYBSA board, parent volunteers and the kids on the teams. “To do all the things we wanted to do as an organization we didn’t want to pass it on to the parents, especially with the way Michigan has been over the past several years,” Yetsko said. With fundraisers and assistance from local volunteers, several of the fields have undergone major improvements such as replacing of turf, fence upgrades, scoreboards and other upgrades. All improvements were funded by the DYBSA. To meet the demands of the large number of boys and girls wanting to use the facilities the group recently purchased batting cages so kids could work on their hitting while waiting for practice time on the field.

a higher level. He said without offering travel teams, they would be losing players to other communities. Stygles, who was director of baseball for six years, said each season DYBSA fields about 14 softball teams and 20-22 baseball teams. They also have six travel teams each season. In addition to overseeing the recreation baseball teams and travel teams, Stygles saw that the hats, T-shirts and other uniforms were ready for softball and baseball teams. One of the high points for Stygles’ was when one of the younger teams was short a coach and Stygles and his son David took it over. Stygles said David took on the role of the head coach. After the season, a parent of one of the players on the team thanked Stygles, saying how his son was always stuck playing in the outfield, but David saw that the boy, along with all of the team got to play at all of the positions. “That was by far the best moment I ever had,” Stygles said. Yetsko spoke about a player who was coming out of a bad home environment and he took it upon himself to see that the boy got to practice and back home. The boy only played for one year before he started hanging out with a bad crowd and eventually left the area. Recently, while Yetsko was at a DeWitt restaurant, the boy came up to his table. Yetsko said he barely recognized him, the boy had changed, he had outgrown his troubled youth, he was properly dressed and spoke politely to his former coach. “It was a nice feeling afterward. It was one of those times that you felt that after all we had done that it helped him come back on the right path,” Yetsko said. “Those are kind of those nice things where you look back and think maybe I did make a difference for that short period of time.” Yetsko said he feels they turned over a solid organization for the new DYBSA continue to build on. New board members include Dale Hawkins, president; Jeff VanLake, vice president; Mark Uyl, director of baseball and Dan Robertson, treasurer.

DeWitt-Bath Review


Post 205 poised for post-season By SEAN MERRIMAN

LANSING — East Lansing Post 205 baseball coach Bob Gast has been very complimentary of his team’s pitching as of late. Gast was quick to praise his pitching staff again Monday as Post 205 closed out its regular season with back-to-back victories over Lansing Baseball Club at Everett High. Jacob Pearsall pitched four shutout innings while surrendering just one hit and striking out five as Post 205 cruised to a 12-1 victory in game one. “He was throwing strikes, hitting his spots and was in control the entire game out there,” Gast said of the recent St. Johns High grad. “He has continued to get better and better this summer.” Jared Nurenberg, also a St. Johns graduate, led the Post 205 offense by going 2-for-3 with two runs batted in and a run scored in the opener. He finished the regular season with a .436 batting average and 54 RBI, both of which rank second on the team. In the second game, it was the duo of Tyler Smith (Portland St. Patrick) and Travis Thomas (Portland) which stood out on the mound for Post 205. Smith (6-0) started the game and pitched four shutout innings, allowing two hits and striking out three as Post 205 picked up a 3-1 win in the nightcap. Thomas pitched the final three innings, giving up one run on two hits and striking out three. He picked up his third save of the season while holding opponents to just a .180 average, which is the lowest of any pitcher on the team. “My job all season has been to just go in there and throw strikes,” Thomas said. “Everyone on this team knows their role and are prepared for anything at any time.” Miguel Mendez picked up two of Lansing Baseball Club’s

six hits on the day. The Lansing Baseball Club, which is made up of players from Everett, Eastern, Waverly and Sexton, finished its season with a final record of 15-7. “We have a lot of great, young kids that have stepped in and played big roles for us,” Lansing Baseball Club coach Bryan Frechen said. “Hopefully everyone on this team learned something from this season.” Post 205 closed out its regular season with a record of 35-7-1. The team will now shifts its focus to the upcoming Palomino State Tournament, which started July 22 at Central Michigan University. Just as they have all season long, Post 205 will rely on its deep pitching staff to help them advance in the postseason. “We have had so many pitchers stand out for us this year and I’m excited about this tournament because I think were going to surprise a lot of people with our pitching depth,” Gast said. “Really, our pitching is just rounding itself into shape.” Chuck DeClarke has led Post 205 with a 7-1 record and a 1.19 ERA on the mound. He is followed by Tyler Smith, who sports a 6-0 record with a 3.04 ERA. DeClarke also leads the team with a .564 batting average, which is the highest batting average in Post 205 team history. “Those are some pretty established numbers,” Gast said of DeClarke. “He has met so much to this team in his four years here.” East Lansing is scheduled to face Allen Park in its opening game of the state tournament. “We don’t know a lot of these teams, but we do know that the competition will be good,” Gast said. “We know that as a team, we are playing our best ball of the year right now. “We don’t have any injuries and a lot of guys are at the top of their game. So many guys are just doing their jobs game after game.”
