Bath Days festival to take place this week By DAWN PARKER email@example.com
BATH — The bathtubs are coming! The bathtubs are coming! The International Bathtub Races is not the be-all and end-all of what the annual Bath Days Festival is about, but it is a key part of what promises to be a fun weekend. “The objective of the festival is to bring the community together,” said Jennifer Wilson, secretary of the festival’s board of directors. Activities begin with an opening ceremony at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6, and continue through Saturday, Aug. 7. The festival concludes with a fireworks display, which Wilson said is completely funded by donations from sponsors. The festival originally began in the 1970s, but was re-inaugurated three years ago.
There’s a lot to do for everyone in the family, and many activities are free. Wilson said many things are bigger and better than ever, especially the children’s activities and the car show, set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Bath Elementary School parking lot. The show attracted 83 cars last year, Wilson said, and she is sure a more central location will attract more cars and more visitors. Early registration begins at 9 a.m., and $5 gets you registered. “I think we have pulled together a pretty good festival this year,” festival president Vicki Streeter said. Kids can enjoy a rock climb slide, castle bounce, two-lane bungee run, 80-foot obstaPhoto by Robert Killips/Lansing State Journal cle course and inflate-a-hoops games for $3 for one day and $5 for both days, and tickets The bath tub racers for the Bath Township Police Department and Bath Township

Many issues await local voters in Aug. 3 primary By TOM THELEN firstname.lastname@example.org
DeWITT — Area residents will go to the polls this Tuesday, Aug. 3, to select candidates for the November general election. Residents in area townships will also decide the fate of three millage renewals. Voters in the DeWitt Public Library District are being asked to renew a 0.4998 mill levy for a four-year period to provide funds for library operations. The library district includes the City of DeWitt, DeWitt Township, and a portions of Watertown Township that are in the DeWitt, St. Johns and
Lansing school districts. If approved, the owner of a home with a taxable value of $50,000 would pay about $25 while the owner of a home with a taxable value of $75,000 would pay about $37.50. The millage would provide an estimated $319,000 in the first year of the levy. Voters in DeWitt Township are also being asked to renew a two mill levy for a four-year period that would provide funding for the township police and fire departments. One mill would be designated for the police department and one for the fire department If approved, the owner of a home with a taxable value of $50,000 would pay $100 while the owner of a home with a
taxable value of $75,000 would pay $150. The millage would provide an estimated $446,608 for each department in the first year of the levy. Bath Township voters also have a millage renewal for emergency services on their ballot. The Bath Township request is a three mill renewal for two years to provide funds for the township’s police and fire departments If approved, the owner of a home with a taxable value of $50,000 would pay $150 while the owner of a home with a taxable value of $75,000 would pay $225. The millage would provide an estimated $1,124,006 in the first year of the levy. See Election/page 3

Bath Days: 2010 festival to feature a variety of events Continued from page 1
are good for the entire run of the festival. Other children’s activities include a miniature golf game, Impression 5 and the MSU Community Music School’s “Petting Zoo,” which lets youngsters try out different musical instruments. One of the more popular events of the weekend is the Pleasant Hill Cemetery Tour, running from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday. A number of grave sites will have hosts to enlighten visitors about some of Bath’s more prominent founders. “Enough people missed (seeing) it last year that they wanted to bring it back,” noted Wilson, who added the tour will contain a couple of “new twists.” The event is self-guided. Cemetery visitors are encouraged to take as much time as they like, but to be respectful of grave sites and to only bring water onto the grounds. Other grave sites will feature costumed interpreters sharing the stories of a state senator, a 19th-century schoolteacher and Civil War soldiers, the last represented by Camp 58 George W. Anderson Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. Still others will have descendants of founding families sharing the stories of their forebears. Flags will be placed on the graves included in the tour. The tour is co-sponsored by the Lansing Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Saturday’s schedule includes a serious element, with two performances of “An Act of Madness: The Bath
School Bombing” at 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. at the Bath United Methodist Church. The Bath Middle School Museum will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Chicago author Arnie Bernstein will hold two separate signings of his 2009 book, “Bath Massacre: America’s First School Bombing”. The first signing is set for 11 a.m. to noon at Bath United Methodist Church, with a second signing from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Bath School Museum. Excitement for the Bathtub Races begins building Thursday, Aug. 5 and Friday, Aug. 6, when weigh-ins will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Superior Car Care, 13636 Main Street. Racing begins at noon Saturday, featuring a surprise guest “local celebrity” as the official starter. Wilson said 13 craft took part last year, and this year’s entries will include the Bath Township and Elsie fire departments, along with the Bath Lions Club. “We don’t know the number of entries until people show up,” Wilson added. The “bathtub” need not be a real tub, but it has to have held water at some point in its existence. The dizzying array of events includes a beer tent both evenings, an agility demonstration at 5 p.m. Saturday by the Mid-Michigan Rottweiler and Schutzhund Klub and a performance at 9 p.m. Saturday by the Patch Chords, a popular local barbershop quartet who have played at the Wharton Center. There will also be plenty of good food, with a dinner at the Bath United Methodist Church from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, a pancake breakfast put on by the Bath Lions Club from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday and a lunch by the Lions Club from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Children visiting the 2009 Bath Days festival enjoy one of the inflatables set up in the park. An obstacle course and rock climb slide are just some of the attractions for children at the 2010 festival, scheduled for Aug. 6-7. Streeter said she is impressed and pleased by the support – financial and otherwise – from many in the community. “People really do still dig into their pockets to help,” she said.

Purse snatchers apprehended email@example.com
DeWITT TWP.— Three people suspected of stealing a purse from a customer at the Meijer store on Business U.S. 127 were later caught in Shiawassee County and could face charges in both incidents. Township police said the victim in DeWitt went to the checkout lanes on July 20 and realized her purse was missing from her shopping cart. Witnesses reported seeing two females and a male in the store. One of the females was seen leaving the store with a purse under her shirt. A short time later, the victim’s bank card was used to withdraw money from an ATM at a gas station in Bath Township, police reports said. The Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Department later arrested suspects in a similar incident at another Meijer store. DeWitt Township

police interviewed the suspects and believe they are responsible for the DeWitt larceny. Purse thefts are more likely to occur during the Thanksgiving to Christmas holiday season, township police said. But they are warning women to keep an eye on their purses.

Hit-and-run crash A driver was taken to Sparrow Hospital with undisclosed injuries after a hitand-run accident on U.S. 127 on July 21. Township police were called to an area along the southbound lanes, near East Howe Road, and found a car in the ditch on the west side of the road. The female driver said her vehicle had been struck by a semi-truck. The officer noticed damage and some transferred red paint on the rear of the victim’s vehicle. The case was under investigation.
Group chosen for superintendent search DeWITT — The Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) will lead the search for a new superintendent of DeWitt Public Schools. The DeWitt Public Schools Board of Education

DeWITT — High schools students in the Bath and DeWitt school districts continued to perform above state averages in the Michigan Merit Examination, according to results released by state education officials. “I think the results are pretty good, overall,” DeWitt Schools Superintendent Tina Templin said. “We have done a lot of work at the high school level to align our curriculum to power school standards, This tells me that our work in that area is spot-on.” In the Bath district, officials were pleased with “pretty significant” increases in reading and social studies, Superintendent Jake Huffman said. “We’re happy to see the continued growth and performance of students in the district, and we’ll continue to identify areas where we need to be stronger,” he said. The Michigan Merit Examination is given to 11th
graders in March and includes the ACT college entrance test. In the DeWitt district, about 70 percent of the students who took the test met or exceeded state standards in math, 83 percent met standards in reading and 74 percent met standards in science. The other subjects were social studies (92 percent) and writing (62 percent). Templin said the district still has room for improvement, even though its students are performing well above the state average. “I’m going to take a look at our writing and mathematics to make sure we’re enriching the experience so students can perform at the highest levels,” Templin said. In Bath, about 52 percent of the students who took the test were proficient in math, 69 percent were proficient in reading and 59 percent met standards in science. More than 87 percent were proficient in social studies and 42.4 percent met standards in writing.
Social studies scores were up 8 percent from last year and reading scores were up 7 percent over a year ago, Huffman said. Math and writing scores didn’t change much, he said. Statewide, 44 percent of

The pain pets endure when their nail grows into their pad is excruciating! How can you tell? Aside from their reluctance to walk on the paw, the infected digit is generally twice the size of the others. Many times it comes complete with a horrible smelling, purulent discharge. This condition cares not about the species, as there are just as many cats as there are dogs that suffer from an overgrown nail. Correcting the problem is multifaceted yet pretty straightforward, trim the nail, treat the infection topically and systemically, reduce the swelling and minimize the pain during the healing process. Quite often, to remove the part of the nail that has grown into the pet’s pad, the pet is in such pain that sedation is necessary. As a benefit to the sedation in place to trim the pus soaked nail from the pad, the initial cleanup is made much easier! I wouldn’t say they just lay there with their paw extended however most pets do not object significantly to the rigors of removing the purulent material so that it
Pet health Dr. Stephen R. Thimmig
heals faster with considerably less discomfort. Treating the infection works best when we work from both the inside and from the outside. An oral antibiotic is given to rid the body of the unwanted bacteria. At the same time we work from the outside. For the next week or so, caregivers apply a warm, moist compress to the site four times a day and follow by applying a topical antibiotic ointment to the affected area. I know many of you are saying, “I’m not getting up at 3 a.m. to soak my pet’s paw.” Notice, I didn’t say “At six-hour intervals.” I simply said, “four times a day.” I don’t care if there is not more than 30 minutes between applications. The fact is that warmth increases the blood flow to the site and moisture removes the pus. Pain reduction is accomplished by doing a number
of things. Removing the nail that has grown into the pad is a no-brainer. Then getting the infection under control reduces the inflammation and that helps. Finally, administering an oral pain reliever for the next two to seven days may make treating your pet considerably easier. You will need to consult with your veterinarian to learn which of the many analgesics are best suited for your particular situation. The best way to deal with this overgrown nail situation is to avoid it in the first place. How so? Trim your pet’s nails on a regular basis. If they don’t want you to do it, schedule an appointment with a pet stylist or with your veterinarian’s office so that the job can be done before it becomes an infected mess! For more information about this and other pet health concerns contact an expert, your veterinarian. Dr. Stephen R. Thimmig and his incredible Health Care Team at Zeeb Pet Health Center are leaders in effective, up to date pet care. Visit them on the Web at www.pethealth.net.

DeWitt agent honored DEWITT — Allstate Insurance Agent John Knevel of DeWitt has received the company’s Agency Hands in the Community Award for volunteerism in the community. With this award comes a $1,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation to the Quality Deer Management Association, where Knevel volunteers. “Allstate believes that it’s important for corporations to take an active interest in the communities they serve,” said Thomas F. Clarkson, vice president of Allstate. “We’re proud that our agents are personally involved in their local communities and that we’re able to recognize them in a way that assists the non-profit organization they support.” Through the Agency Hands in the Community grant program, Allstate agents and Allstate personal financial representatives
are recognized for outstanding commitment to community service with a $1,000 donation to the charitable organization where they volunteer. To qualify for the grant, agents or personal financial representatives must show evidence of volunteer work that has had a positive impact on the local community. Established in 1952, The Allstate Foundation is an independent, charitable organization made possible by subsidiaries of The Allstate Corporation. The Allstate Foundation partners with non-profit organizations on community initiatives that promote “safe and vital communities,” “tolerance, inclusion, and diversity” and “economic empowerment.” Teen driving and empowering victims of domestic violence have been priorities for the Foundation since 2005. — From Allstate

Bath Days events to remember school bombing Book signing, play to take place during 2010 festival By DAWN PARKER firstname.lastname@example.org
BATH — Arnie Bernstein began by wanting to write a book about a “forgotten story” in history. The Chicago-based author found the story he sought in Bath. The more Bernstein researched the Bath Massacre, the more drawn to the story he became. “It just hit me in the forehead – this is what I have to do,” Bernstein said recently by phone. The result is “Bath Massacre: America’s First School Bombing,” released by the University of Michigan Press in 2009. Bernstein, who lives in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago, will come to Bath on Saturday, Aug. 7, for two signings during Bath Days. The first signing is set for 11 a.m. to noon at Bath United Methodist Church, with a second signing from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Bath School Museum. The 176-page book was four years in the writing. Bernstein conducted extensive research, traveling to Bath to interview survivors and others, as well as consult historical records of the disaster. The blast killed 45 and injured 59, and remains the worst mass murder at a school in U.S. history. “It stopped being a story and became a duty – a duty to do it right,” said Bernstein, who added he continues to hear new information about the bombing.
“The people in Bath have been very kind in what they have had to say about the book. Their reaction has been very humbling.” Bernstein describes himself as a “creative non-fiction” writer who enjoys the challenge of making history vibrant, and is influenced by Truman Capote (In Cold Blood) and Norman Mailer (The Executioner’s Song). The inspiration of those stories helped guide “Bath Massacre,” Bernstein said. “They are crime stories, and they kept me going. I wanted to put the reader in the building with the kids and on the grounds with (bomber Andrew) Kehoe,” he added. What made Kehoe, a school board trustee, even more frightening was his very ordinariness. “He was the guy next door. He fits the classic psychopath pattern. There is no explanation for his behavior,” Bernstein said. “There is no explanation. There is no why.” Another highlight of the weekend will be two performances of “An Act of Madness: The Bath School Bombing,” co-written by Okemos playwright Jane Falion. Performances will take place at 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. Saturday at the Bath United Methodist Church. The play based on the bombing has been performed just twice in Bath. The 18-minute work premiered in 2009 at the Renegade Theatre Festival in Lansing to standing room-only crowds. “We had the most amazing reception for the play,” Falion said.

Popular demand led the five-person cast to put on two shows nightly during the festival, and that led to an invitation from Bath to perform the show last September. “We had a wonderful reception from the people in Bath. It was quite emotional for all of us,” Falion said. Original cast members Danny Bethea and Jonathan Turkus will be joined by Mark Bethea, Sarah Sonnenberg and Charlotte Rupert. Falion said Sonnenberg, a fifth-grade teacher, interned in Bath and was aware of the story before being cast in the show. “I am very happy to do it during the festival time,” Falion said. “I’m hoping that some people who didn’t know we were performing the last time will be aware of it.”

Post 205 squad wins four, captures state title State tournament
By BILL McLEOD firstname.lastname@example.org
MOUNT PLEASANT — East Lansing Post 205 pitchers shined in the Palomino League state tournament, not allowing a run in all four games to clinch the state title. “I’ve been talking about our pitching staff all season long, and they backed me up,” Post 205 coach Bob Gast said. “Looking back, no one ever won the state title without giving up a run.” Gast said it is very difficult to shut out four teams in a row— a hit followed by a bad bounce on a grounder, and suddenly the runner is in scoring position. “It’s so easy to score a run without shelling the pitcher,” he said. “This was quite a feat for us.” As effective as the team’s pitching performance was, Post 205 hitters proved they were up to the task, feasting on their opponents’ pitching. East Lansing scored 39 runs while blanking opponents in the four-game series. Post 205 advanced to the Palomino North Zone regional in Kankakee, Ill., where they were to face a Minnesota team and two teams from Illinois in the first three games. The winner was to advance to the semifinal round July 31. Last year Post 205 advanced to the Palomino World Series. It was the fifth time Post 205 has been to the series, and Gast is optimistic about making getting there this year. “It’s going to be tough, but we have better pitching than we had last year,” Gast said about getting through the regional. “They know all about us down there (at Kankakee). It’s going to be a battle.”
Post 205 started the state tournament with an easy 21-0 win over Allen Park in the July 21 opener. Albion College junior Chuck DeClarke, a Lansing Catholic graduate, was the winning pitcher, striking out five in four innings. DeWitt’s Trever Bowers came on in relief, shutting out Allen Park in the final two innings. Ryan Joy of St. Johns went 3-for-3 at the plate. B.J. Salazar of Lansing Eastern was 2-for-3. DeClarke had a home run and a double, drove in three runs and scored three times. Tyler Smith of Portland St. Patrick had a solo home run. “Everything we hit found a hole,” Gast said about scoring 21 runs. “Allen Park is a good team, but I think they got shell-shocked after we scored five runs in the first inning. It was one of those things where everything we did worked.” Williamston’s Dylan Monette was the winning pitcher in the second game, besting Walled Lake No. 2 10-0 July 22. He struck out six and allowed just two hits. “It was a stellar performance for Monette, he was on his game,” Gast said. DeClarke had two hits and drove in two runs. Markus Wojtkowicz of Owosso went 2-for-2 with an RBI. Mason’s Allen Manyen hit a two-run double and scored a run. The third game of the tournament was a repeat showdown with the Central Michigan Stars. Post 205 swept the Stars in an earlyseason doubleheader, but the Stars most recently bested East Lansing 9-5 and 11-5 in a July 13 doubleheader. Gast said Post 205 struggled in the loss, not hitting, pitching or fielding well.
A ssisted Living & S pecialized Memor y Care
“That game was a wake-up call for us,” Gast said. After the loss to the Stars, Post 205 went on to win the rest of its scheduled games to close out the regular season. Gast said Post 205 was ready to get redemption for the losses, especially after he went to the press box to turn in the lineup card and a coach for the Stars asked Gast if he “wanted the silver (second place) metal now?” “That was bulletin board material,” Gast said abut the coach’s smug comment.
The game featured a match up between St. Johns pitching ace Jacob Pearsall and Mount Pleasant sophomore standout Evan Hill. Pearsall walked away with the 2-0 win, striking out five and allowing just two hits in 5 2/3 innings. “He was right on top of his game, he was dominant for 5 2/3 innings,” Gast said. “He just ran out of gas (at the end) on a very hot day.” See Post

Post 205: Team wins Palomino state tournament Continued from page 20
Portland’s Travis Thomas came on to pick up his fourth save of the game, getting out of a two-out, bases loaded jam in the sixth inning. Gast said it was huge to get the win over Hill, who is already being heavily recruited by several Division 1 colleges. Gast said the win took the win out of the Stars’ sails for the rest of the tournament. The Stars finished third. St. Johns players showed well in the game. Jacob Robinson, a recent St. Johns grad, scored both runs for Post 205. He scored in the first inning when Redwing teammate Jared Nurenberg doubled. Robinson scored again in the third inning, this time of a single by Joy. The St. Johns players preserved a shutout in the sixth inning when the Stars had the bases loaded with one out. Nurenberg field a grounder at third, flipped to Robinson at second for the force out. Robinson fired to first baseman Joy for the double play, thwarting a Stars threat. DeClarke picked up a 6-0 win in the July 24 tournament final over Walled Lake No. 1, pitching the complete game. Clark had a perfect game until the fifth inning, when a Walled Lake batter got a hit on a bouncing grounder. DeClarke faced only 22 batters in the nine-inning game. “He’s got everything you want in a pitcher,” Gast said. DeClarke has a 9-1 season record with a 0.93 ERA. He has held opponents to a measly .117 batting average. DeClarke had a double and scored a run. Manyen went 2-for-3 with an RBI and scored a run. Nurenberg and Williamston’s Tyler Watters each had two RBI. Post 205 heads for regionals with a 39-7-1 record. The World Series will be held Aug. 5-8 in San Jose, Calif.

DeWitt and MSU golfer Liz Nagel shot a five-under par 139 to win medalist honors in two days of stroke play at the Michigan Women’s Amateur. Nagel lost 1-up in match play at the St. Clair Country Club July 28.
DeWitt’s Nagel medalist in Women’s Amateur ST. CLAIR — DeWitt’s Liz Nagel, after leading the field with a five-under-part 139 in stroke play at the 94th Michigan Women’s Amateur, lost 1-up in match play to Grand Valley State’s Sarah Hoffman. “It was just such a great atmosphere out there today,” Nagel said after earning medalist honors July 28.
“It was very laid back and everyone is so friendly. There are a lot of players from my team at MSU who made match play, too, so it’s going to be Spartan match play.” In the 32-player field that advanced to match play, there were seven MSU players. Spartan golfers that advanced to the 16-player second round of match play
were Natalie Brehm, Maddi Massa and Christine Meier. Spartan coach Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll also advanced to the second round of match play. Nagel advanced to the final eight in match play at the 2008 Amateur. She was a MHSAA state champion for Division 2 in 2007 and runner-up in 2009.

Bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate. — From the American Red Cross
LANSING — American Red Cross officials would like to thank everyone who has attempted to donate blood this summer and encourages all eligible donors to make an appointment before summer’s end. “Thanks to our dedicated blood donors, we are able to provide our hospitals with the blood products their patients need,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Region of the American Red Cross. “The summer is a difficult time for blood collections and we depend on our generous donors to help us maintain a healthy blood supply.” The Red Cross needs to collect about 700 units of blood everyday for hospital patients throughout the Great Lakes Region. Patients need blood for ongoing and emergency medical treatments. Vacation-related travel accidents can increase that need. While the need for blood doesn’t go away during the summer, blood donors sometime do. Make an appointment to donate blood before the summer slips away. The following is a list of American Red Cross blood drives in the area through Aug. 20. • Aug. 2: Knights of Columbus Hall, 1108 N.
