DeWitt opens vehicle charging station Ken Palmer

DeWITT — Mayor Jim Rundborg couldn’t resist: The city is “all charged up” over its new electric car charging station in the center of town, the mayor said in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 13. Better make that “plugging-in ceremony.” Obvious puns aside, city officials and downtown merchants hope the station will draw more people to the city’s downtown area, where they can do a little shopping and grab a bite to eat while recharging their rides. The charging station is the first in the area outside of Lansing and the first municipally owned station in mid-Michigan. A grant from ChargePoint America - a $37-million project designed to build

charging stations in metropolitan areas paid for the equipment. The city paid for installation.. Local Chevrolet Volt aficionado Matt Stehouwer became the first to plug in to the new ChargePoint station on the southwest corner of Bridge and Main streets, where two parking spots are reserved for electric vehicle owners. Since acquiring his Volt in mid-February, Stehouwer said, he’s spent about $15 for electricity and about $150 in gasoline. Also on hand for the ceremony was James McQuaid, of Delta Township, who acquired a Volt a few weeks ago. Both he and Stehouwer said they’ll be more likely to visit DeWitt because of the recharging station. Drivers need a ChargePass card to use the station.

DeWitt Twp. to hold hearing regarding bike course Ken Palmer

DeWITT TWP. — Have an opinion about a proposed new bike course at Padgett Park? If so, the Township Board wants to hear it. The Board has set a Sept. 26 public hearing on a proposal to build a hybrid BMX/mountain bike course on an unused part of the park off W. Herbison Road.

Jon Vandecar, owner of BikeWorks in the Schavey Road Plaza presented the idea to the board in late July. Board members want feedback before acting on the proposal, Township Manager Rod Taylor said. “Obviously, the board supports outsidethe-box thinking” when it comes to development, Taylor said. “But we don’t want to rush into making changes without getting feedback from the public.” Vandecar said he would work with the

township to build a track and trail system on a few acres of land in the front section of the park. The land has elevation changes suitable for a track and trail system with jumps and curves. The first of its kind in the area, the track would have BMX-type features but be suitable for mountain bikes, Vandecar said. The track would be built and maintained by volunteers, with donations cov-

ering the cost, Taylor said. Most of the natural growth would remain in place, he said. The public hearing is set for 7 p.m. Sept. 26.

Police contracts approved In its Sept. 9 meeting, the Board approved new, four-year contracts for See BIKE COURSE, Page 4

DeWitt. Twp. police investigating theft from vehicle Ken Palmer

DeWITT TWP. — If your four-legged burglar alarm sounds for no apparent reason, a two-legged skunk could be the culprit. So say township police, who received two recent complaints from crime victims who failed to check things out when their dogs sounded the alarm. In the most recent case, a resident on West Stoll Road discovered his golf clubs and Oakley sunglasses missing from his vehicle on the morning of Sept. 7, police said. The man said his dog started barking at 10 p.m. the night before for no apparent reason, and he ignored it, police said. “If this happens to you, check out your immediate property or call 911 and have the police check things out,” township Police Chief Brian Russell said. “It may be a two-legged skunk on your premises.” The incident remained under investigation.

Police find driver asleep at the wheel Officers who checked a complaint about music blaring from a suspicious vehicle found the apparent driver passed out behind the wheel. The incident happened about 1:15 a.m. Sept. 9 in a parking lot at Business U.S. 127 and Wieland Road, township police said. A 42-year-old Lansing man who was sitting in the driver’s seat of the running vehicle was extremely intoxicated and could barely function, police said. He admitted he’d had too much to drink and was expected to face a drunken driving charge, they said.

The music stopped playing and the two were turned over to Lansing police.

Engine, transmission taken in theft Police were investigating the theft of an engine, a transmission, a hydraulic pump and scrap metal from a business on West Stoll Road. The larceny was reported on Sept. 8 and remained under investigation, township police said.

Tools taken in home break-in

Volunteers sought to aid log jam cleanup on Sept. 24 DeWITT — The Friends of the Looking Glass (FLG) are in need of a couple dozen volunteer lumberjacks and wannabees for LogJamBee 2011 on Saturday, Sept. 24. This is the group’s annual work party to cut through logjams to reduce bank erosion and to make the river safe for canoers, kayakers, floaters and anglers. The FLG rotates the date every other year between Fridays and Saturdays so that municipalities, townships and businesses can put their crews to work on a regular work day (to avoid Saturday overtime) on problem areas within their jurisdiction while receiving help from FLG workers, saving tax dollars. City and township officials are asked to please schedule their available DPW/DPS equipment and staff to get this work done on or before Sept. 24, while water levels are low. There are at least three middle section areas that need attention this year, from upstream to down: •Downstream of Babcock Landing where limbs and debris need to be snagged out to prevent duckweed dams from clogging the stream and preventing access • Halfway between the mouth of the Remy-Chandler Drain mouth into the LGR, and Old 27 bridge.

BATH TWP. — Police were investigating a malicious destruction complaint involving a deer blind. A property owner on Drumheller Road told police that someone deliberately damaged the wooden blind he was building, kicking at the side panels and tearing apart the support members, apparently around Sept. 5, a report on the incident said. An officer photographed shoe impressions found on the stand. The case was closed, pending new information.

Littering incident brings repercussions A 22-year-old Holt man ended up in handcuffs after a township officer saw him toss a bag of trash from his pickup truck on I-69. The incident happened about 1 p.m. Sept. 11. The officer was driving west on the freeway near Webster Road when he

saw the trash being tossed out of the driver’s-side window of the eastbound pickup, police reports said. The officer turned around and caught up with the suspect at Business I-69 and M-78. When the officer turned on his overhead lights, the driver briefly sped up, then slammed on his brakes, skidding off the pavement and into a residential yard, leaving a trench in the grass, the reports said. The man admitted tossing the trash and indicated he didn’t feel it was a problem, the officer said in his report. Along with the littering charge, the driver was ticketed for speeding and careless driving, the report said.

Man charged after crashing car A Kawkawlin man faces charges of drunken driving and driving on a suspended license after his car crashed on a freeway entrance ramp and caught fire on Sept. 10. The driver, 22, said he was entering the westbound lanes of I-69 from Business I-69 about 4:30 a.m. when his vehicle spun into

a guardrail and bounced across the lane and into a retaining wall, police reports said. He climbed out before the fire started and was driven to a gas station on Marsh Road by a passerby. An employee called 911 to report that “a bloody male” was in the store, the reports said.

The intoxicated man was taken by ambulance to Sparrow Hospital and later released to the Clinton County Jail, where he was lodged for a noise violation and resisting arrest.

Police use Taser to subdue drunken man

A Muskegon Heights man was nothing but courteous when a township officer stopped him for speeding on Coleman Road on the morning of Sept. 11. That is, until the officer informed him he had a warrant for his arrest. The 21-year-old driver became abrasive with the officer, spouting racial slurs, a report on the incident said. He also yelled at an assisting officer, saying “he was only tough because he had a gun,” the report said. The suspect was taken to the Clinton County Jail, where he was abrasive with the staff, the report said.

Police used a Taser to immobilize a drunken man who caused a ruckus at The Club apartment complex on Sept. 10 and tried to run from officers. Two township officers responded to a noise complaint about 3:30 a.m. and saw the suspect walk out of his apartment in his boxer shorts, a report on the incident said. The man ran back inside and refused to open the door for police. But a short time later, as an officer waited outside, he slammed his apartment door and walked out of the building, still wearing only his boxer shorts, the report said.

Inaugural Panther Spirit 5k race a success DeWITT — The inaugural Panther Spirit 5k run and walk took place Aug. 20 in downtown DeWitt. Nearly 160 runners and walkers - including about 20 DeWitt High School alumni - participated in the event, a fundraiser for the DeWitt High School cheerleading teams. The 5-kilometer course started at the Catholic Community of St. Jude, wound through downtown DeWitt, along the DeWitt River Trail, through Riverside Park, and along the DeWitt Ox Roast parade route before ending back at the church. DeWitt cheerleaders, the DHS Drum Line, and other volunteers lined the route to encourage and entertain racers. The 5k race attracted runners and walkers from 8 to 70 and all ages in between. The event also included Panther Pounce races for kids. About 50 children enjoyed participating in 100 and 200-meter fun runs, or a one-mile race. The Panther mascot was on hand to cheer them on, along with parents and cheerleaders who offered encouragement. Race director Candace Heskitt was very pleased with the first-year event. “This was our first Panther Spirit Race and it went extremely well,” said Heskitt. “We had so much support from the community. It was great to see so many alumni and get involved and we were happy to have people from the surrounding areas join us, too.” Heskitt added that the race was supported by several local businesses and DeWitt Athletics, along with many volunteers and contributors. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” she said. One of the runners who enjoyed the day’s events was Lesley Harris, a DeWitt High School graduate who now lives in Berkeley. “This race was a lot of fun,” said Harris. “Both my husband and I ran and we’ll definitely be back next year.” Trophies and medals were awarded to the overall win-

The overall female winner of the race was DeWitt cross country runner Emily Murdoch, who finished in 19:19. Tyler Patrick of Gaylord was the male winner with a time of 18:46. DeWitt residents Rhonda Dick and Brett Tingay were the female and male masters winners, finishing in 20:06 and 18:52,

JOHNS — Being a foster parent is not about being a millionaire, owning a mansion or even your home, being married, having your own children, and being tied down at home all day. Instead foster parents need to have a reliable income and not expect to get rich from being a foster parent. You need to have space in your home but can be single, work full-time, or even be retired and can pick the ages of

children you would be willing to foster. More importantly you need to: • Provide a safe caring home for a child/ children • Be flexible • Work in collaboration with others • Share your time and love • A good listener, objective, non-judgmental • Most important emphasize the posi-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I’ve kept my website campaign promise One of my campaign promises was to set up an informational website for township residents. The following paragraphs explain what I have done to fulfill this promise and how the public may access my website. Thank you in advance for your interest and support. My 2008 campaign promise was: The existing website to connect the people of the township and surrounding communities needs to be upgraded and updated. For the residents that don’t have use of computers, printed material would be available. I feel it is very important for a trustee to connect with the residents, listen to their concerns and ideas, and after doing so follow up with them. I have been developing my website for about two years. Recently I enlisted the help of a web developer, Ron Rademacher, to make my website more user friendly. Ron has provided me with an email option to connect with interested residents that sign up. As a starting point, all the residents that sign up will receive an email which

will contain the agenda of the board of trustee’s regular meeting before the meeting. After the meeting I will place the whole board packet contents and the audio of the meeting on my website. A short time later I will provide a summary of the meeting and any subjects that I feel might be of interest to the residents. To sign up for email alerts go to my website and click on email alerts, then enter your email, and click submit. I am doing this to bring more transparency to township matters to those that are interested. Dale Westrick Watertown Township Trustee

n recent weeks, has your pet become a little more obnoxious? Is their anxiety level now to the point of being destructive? Did all of this start about the time that the kids went back to school? There are some furry family members who cherish the quiet. Then there are others who are lost without the attention they’ve had during the past few months. How pets react to these changes ranges form a sigh of relief to and gratitude for the solace to significant inappropriate behaviors. For those who have chosen the destructive option, can you blame them? Their daily routine has been severely disrupted! The day-long attention received and given, by those they adore, is no more. So, in an effort to get their loved ones to meet their social needs, they sometimes resort to mischief and destructive behaviors. The more common


Dr. Stephen Thimmig destructive behaviors include; remodeling the woodwork with their teeth, finding new “potty” areas for urine, feces, or both, excessive vocalization and removing perfectly good wallpaper from the walls. Any and all of these behaviors state: “We want our old routine BACK!” The technical term for these types of behaviors is “Separation Anxiety.” It frequently starts with something quite benign like barking then moves to howling and may ultimately become quite destructive. Inappropriately eliminating in the home is yet another way pets display their dissatisfaction. If you are lucky cats will use the sink or bathtub. Some find the kitchen or bathroom linoleum acceptable. Many will “mark” an owners

clothing item lying on the floor with their scent. This activity is likely the easiest to correct. Simply do as your mother says, “Don’t leave your clothes on the floor.” The following are some suggestions that may help reduce your pet’s anxiety. As they work a fair amount of the time, try these first. In the event that these fail, a pharmaceutical may be your only other option Let’s not make a big deal out of your departure. “See you later”, without the big hug, is not necessary. Try quietly exiting out the back door with minimal notoriety. To further disrupt the impact of your departure, at various times throughout the day, without notice, just go out the back door for a few moments. Try putting on your coat, jingling the car keys in the same way as when leave. This will further lessen the significance of these activities when you actually do depart. Some have found that ignoring their pet for an hour, prior to leaving, has

helped reduce their anxiety. Others, just as they are walking out the door have introduced a special toy to occupy their time. When they return, they retrieve the item so the pet knows it is something special. Crating your pet while you are away is a simple and cost effective way to minimize destructive behaviors. This is NOT putting your pet in jail! It can be a very effective way to reassure them that life will be fine while you are gone. In the wild, for protection, dogs go to their

den. A crate symbolizes their den so that they feel secure. It is important that you are positive when you tell them to “Kennel up”. This is not a punishment. Mary and I use this technique whenever we leave the brood alone. If all of this fails you may want to consider giving your dog a medication specifically designed and approved for treating canine separation anxiety. In contrast to a tranquilizer, which sedates the pet, making them dull and unresponsive, this medica-

tion alters their psyche. Unlike tranquilizers that act within an hour, this medication must be given for a few weeks to have its full effect. It should be used with other behavior modification tactics to have the optimal results. For more information about this and other pet health concerns, contact an expert, your veterinarian.

Fall Home Improvement Is D-I-Y a recipe for saving money overall? Many homeowners or renters wrestle with the question of whether to tackle a project as a do-it-yourself venture to save some money or simply leave it to a professional. Each situation is unique, but there are certain factors that must be considered regardless of a homeowner’s particular situation. On the surface, a DIY task can seem a very good way to save some money. After all, a large percentage, sometimes as much as 50 percent, of the cost of hiring a contractor goes toward labor. For a DIY job with no such costs, the final financial tally can be substantially less. Although labor can be expensive, that cost is often justified. People who hire carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and the like are paying for the workers’ experience. They’re also paying with the expectation that the job will be done correctly. With jobs that require a building permit or must be done to specific code, the contractor often puts his reputation on the line and will be held

Installing a new deck may be a project best left to the professionals because of the skill level required. FILE PHOTO accountable if the work doesn’t meet requirements. That isn’t to say an untrained individual can’t tackle a specific job around the house. There are some guidelines that may make such projects go more smoothly and, as a result, more affordable. • Read up and learn as much as you can about the particular

work to be done. It’s easier to make mistakes if you do not know where to start. • Talk to others who have also done the work. They may have some tips or advice that can save you time and money. You may also want to ask if they can help and show you the ropes. • Be sure to obtain all neces-

sary permits before starting any work. Don’t risk a fine for doing work without permits or having work inspected. • When applying for permits, find out if there is a list of codespecific requirements that you can follow -- a cheat-sheet of sorts. It may list rated materials required and any techniques. See if you can speak to an inspector who will be visiting your property later on to find out what he or she looks for specifically. • You must feel confident with the endeavor. If you are unsure about anything, you may risk injury or make a significant mistake and be forced to hire someone to clean up your mess. • Consider reputable sources for information. While it’s easy to go online and scour message boards for pointers on certain tasks, not all of the information is accurate. Trust only content from sources that are licensed or backed by certification in a certain area. These things being said, there are a number of DIY projects that

regular people can try. Starting off small and building up as skills are developed are good ways to begin. For example: • Tile a small kitchen backsplash before tackling an entire bathroom shower enclosure or floor. • Build an outdoor potting stand before attempting furniture or cabinetry work in a main room of the house. • Change out a ceiling fan or lighting fixture before re-running electrical lines through the home. • Succeed in repairing a leaky drain pipe before taking on a more advanced plumbing issue. • Use regular painting techniques first before experimenting with a trendy faux finish or plaster application. There are many different things individuals can do themselves that stretch beyond routine home maintenance. From manicures to pool upkeep, the potential to save money when budgets are tight can be a powerful motivator.

Ways to ready your home to withstand harsh winter weather insulation. Such joists won’t be visible in an adequately insulated attic. Put up the storm windows. It’s nice to open the windows in the spring and summer and let the warm air waft in through the screens. But when summer is over, it’s time to put up the storm windows once again. Storm windows add an extra layer of protection from the elements and are especially valuable in homes with single-pane glass windows. Homeowners who don’t have storm windows should consider upgrading their existing windows. Such a project isn’t cheap, but newer windows will almost certainly lead to lower heating costs, meaning the project will essentially pay for itself over time. Homeowners who can’t afford to replace all of their windows don’t have to replace them all at once. Instead, replace them a few at a time and make the

rooms where you spend the most time each winter the first on the list to receive new windows. Be diligent with the gutters. Leaves falling from trees is an idyllic image associated primarily with autumn. Unfortunately, when leaves fall they often fall into the gutters. Routinely clean the gutters once the leaves start to fall. Clean gutters will allow snow and rain to effectively drain through the gutters. If the gutters are clogged, snow might have nowhere to go when it begins to melt, and roof damage might result. Such damage is costly but preventable in most instances. One of the easier preventive measures to take is to routinely clean the gutters of leaves and other debris that accumulate during the fall. When cleaning the gutters, make sure they are properly aligned. Poorly aligned gutters can lead to a host of problems.

One such problem is flooding. If downspouts are not properly aligned with the rest of the gutters, then water might not be directed away from the home as it’s intended. Instead, water might be directed toward the home, resulting in flooding or additional water damage. Have the furnace cleaned. Experts recommend annual furnace cleanings. Before cold weather arrives, turn the furnace on to make sure it’s still working. An unpleasant odor should appear when first turning on the furnace, but it shouldn’t last very long. If the odor sticks around, turn the furnace off and call a professional. Once winter arrives, routinely replace the filters. This makes the furnace operate more efficiently and can also reduce the risk of fire.


their disposal to plug leaks, be it door sweeps that block air from entering under exterior doors to caulk applied around leaky windows. When using caulk outdoors, be sure to use a weatherresistant caulk or, if sealing brick, use masonry sealer. Add insulation upstairs. Homeowners who have an attic in their homes might want to consider adding some insulation up there. Experts recommend a minimum of 12 inches of insulation in the attic. That might prove costly, but a poorly insulated attic is akin to opening the front door and letting the heat out. It might be best for less-thanhandy homeowners to hire a professional to insulate the attic. But do-it-yourselfers might find it good to know that if the ceiling joists, which are often 11 inches or less, are visible, then the attic is in need of additional


As autumn arrives, homeowners can take several steps to get their homes ready for whatever winter has to offer with the following tasks. Fix the leaks. A leaky home will prove an expensive home during the winter months. A home with many leaks will be much colder to inhabit, and homeowners typically turn up the heat to counter drafts that can make a home feel like a meat locker. But turning up the thermostat isn’t the answer. Instead, fix leaks in the fall before the cold weather arrives. Leaks should not be very hard to find. On the first breezy autumn afternoon, walk around the house in search of any drafty areas. These drafts will be noticeable and often occur around doors and window frames, electrical outlets and even recessed lighting. Homeowners have a host of options at

Things to consider when budgeting your home improvement Home improvement projects have become de rigueur for today’s homeowners. Be it a kitchen remodel or the ever popular man cave project, home improvement projects remain a goal for many. As enticing as a home improvement project might be, no project can be successful until a budget has been established. The right budget will keep homeowners from going deep into debt when improving their homes, ensuring that, upon the project’s completion, they can fully enjoy their revamped castles without the specter of significant debt hanging ominously over their heads. Before beginning a home improvement project, homeowners can take the following things into consideration.

Credit score: Before beginning a home improvement projects, homeowners should construct a budget to ensure the project is a success. FILE PHOTO

Many homeowners finance home improvement projects with loans from the bank. Particularly in the current economy when banks are being forced to tighten lending requirements, securing such loans isn’t easy. Homeowners with significant credit card debt should eliminate such debt before beginning a project. Doing so serves multiple purposes. First and foremost, eliminating outstanding debt will free up more money to allocate toward the project. Eliminating debt will also make loan applicants more attractive to prospective creditors, increasing their chances of securing a loan and a lower interest rate.

When the comparison between monthly expenses and monthly income has been made, Project’s priority: homeowners can get a grasp Budgeting a home of just what they can and improvement project also cannot afford. involves being honest as

homeowners should examine their finances before starting a home improvement project. Just because a bank will loan out money for a project doesn’t mean the project is affordable. Homeowners should compare their monthly expenses with their Personal finances: incomes, and then deterIt sounds simple, but mine what’s left that might

to just how necessary the project is. For example, a man cave might be a dream project, but should it be a priority over other things around the house? If wear and tear is taking its toll on the roof, for instance, the money going toward the man cave should probably be allocated to replacing the roof instead. If a project is low on the priority list but high on the want list, re-examine those projects higher up on the priority list to determine if they are more deserving of immediate attention and funds than vanity projects.

Overrun costs: Not every home improvement project will come in at or under budget. Many go over budget due to a host of factors. Homeowners should not be caught off guard when a project goes over budget. Instead, plan for the project to go over and expect such frustration. Allocate extra money in the original budget for overrun costs. This will reduce stress and frustration, and if the project comes in under budget, then there’s extra money when the project is completed.

Fall lawn care, winter growth Warm-weather days will soon be a thing of the past and that means prepping the home and landscape for the arrival of winter weather. Even though it may be blanketed first by leaves and snow, lawns need treatment now to be sure they overwinter successfully. In fact, lawn experts say there is significant root growth that takes place during the winter -growth homeowners won’t necessarily see. People should continue to water their lawns throughout the autumn if there isn’t significant rain and to aerate it as well. Applying a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen can help foster strong root growth. Also, keep up on removing leaves that have fallen. Not only will they stifle the lawn, but they may cause excessive moisture and mold to grow while inhibiting sunlight from reaching the grass as well. Before winter arrives, take the time to sow some grass seeds into the bald patches.

These primers inhibit the growth of mold and mildew on painted surfaces. If a room is only to be painted white or tinted slightly with color, then a primer alone can be used. Rooms that are being painted that are already white and free of stains or other surface abnormalities may be painted sufficiently with just a coat of regular paint. If skipping primer, look for a high-quality, thick paint that boasts good coverage in one or two coats. There are new products today that offer primer and paint all in one combination. The jury is still out on the efficacy of these new items, but homeowners can experiment with these paints to see if they work for them.

The DeWitt boys soccer team is off to its typical strong start again this fall, and is ranked No. 4 in Division 2. But how the Panthers have gotten off to that start makes it more impressive. DeWitt improved to 5-0-1 with three wins and a tie from Sept. 8-14, including three shutouts by senior goalkeeper Nick Iacobellis. The Panthers opened the string with a 0-0 tie against Dexter, followed by a 1-0 win over Parma Western and a 3-0 win over Everett on Sept. 10. DeWitt then beat Eaton Rapids 4-2 on Tuesday. Iacobellis made a

combined 22 saves over the four games. The win over Everett was particularly impressive as the Vikings entered the game 7-1. Five players scored goals over the week: Sophomore Mitch Smith had a goal and two assists, sophomore Blake Smith had a combined two goals and an assist, juniors Nick Le and Derek Butcher both scored twice and senior Jeff Parkinson scored once. DeWitt hosted Ionia on Thursday and was set to play in the Williamston Invitational on Saturday, both after press time. The Panthers begin CAAC Red play Tuesday at Haslett. CROSS COUNTRY: The


DeWitt girls were No. 4 in Division 2 in the first state rankings of the season coming off a win in the Class 2 race at the Bath Invitational. The Panthers defeated runner-up Chelsea 50-93 led by sixth-place senior Lauren Rademacher (19:57) and eighth-place sophomore Emily Murdoch (20:09). Senior Kayla Hanses was 11th in 20:20, senior Jessica D’Haene 12th in 20:21 and freshman Jordan Lee 13th in 20:26. The host Bees girls finished just two behind Leslie in the Class 3 race. Freshman Annie Fanta again led the way, this time finishing fourth in 20:28. Junior Alyssa Abendroth was fifth

in 20:33, sophomore Kwyn Trevino ninth in 21:15 and freshman Samantha Evans was 11th in 21:34. Senior Maggie Hammond was 22nd in 22:44. Bath’s boys finished fourth in their Class 3 race led by junior Nick Thomas in 10th place with a time of 18:09. Sophomore Brad Coulter was 22nd in 19:24 and sophomore William Spagnuolo was 26th in 19:40. DeWitt’s boys were seventh in the Class 2 race with senior Josh D’Haene finished eighth in 16:41. Junior Nate Kimble was 22nd in 17:23 and sophomore Aaron Scheffler was 23rd in 18:02. Both DeWitt teams were slated to run in the Mich-

igan State Spartan Invitational on Friday, and will host the CAAC Red in a jamboree Tuesday. Bath runs at Fowler on Wednesday. SWIMMING: DeWitt opened its CAAC Blue season Tuesday with a 202-112 win over East Lansing that included 31 personal-best results. Sophomore Rosalie Yockey and junior Kayla Travis both won multiple races — Yockey in the 500 (5:51.61) and 200 (2:09.01) freestyles and Travis in the 50 (26.38) and 100 (59.41) freestyles. Sophomore Audra Kimble was runner-up in both the 100 freestyle (1:01.83) and the 200 individual medley (2:35.16), in the latter finishing behind

senior teammate Hannah Schroeder (2:34.35). Sophomore Emily Gustafson was runner-up in the 50 (28.35) and sophomore Jacqueline Seguin was third in 29.42. Sophomore diver Gabrielle Roy won her event with a score of 193.6. Senior Jessica Reid, junior Clara Brennan, freshman Emily Hieftje and Seguin won the 200 medley relay in 2:12.62. Travis, Schroeder, Kimble and Yockey won the 200 freestyle relay in 1:49.72. The Panthers swam against Holt on Thursday after press time and swim against Grand Ledge this Thursday before hosting their invitational Saturday.

DeWitt H.S. Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony set for Sept. 23 DeWITT — The DHS Athletic Hall of Fame will honor the Induction Class of 2011 on Friday, Sept. 23, at the home varsity football game versus St. Johns. The DHS Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 2007 to honor the outstanding athletes, teams, community supporters, and coaches/administrators from DeWitt High School’s athletic past. Last spring the DeWitt-Bath Review had exclusive access in revealing the Induction Class of 2011: The 1983 baseball state championship team, Teri Osborn, David Wilson, Keela Yount, and Mike Ashley. Additionally, the Induction Class of 2011 introduced an “honorary membership” award to those individuals who, by virtue of their time, resources and dedication, have significantly supported, enhanced and advanced the athletic program(s) of DeWitt High School. Ray Unger, long-time industrial arts teacher and creator of the firebreathing panther, will be recognized as the first “honorary member” of the DHS Athletic Hall of Fame. As the process comes to a close for year four, the DHS Athletic Hall of Fame hopes that the nomination process will continue to grow as community members look to nominate other notable teams, athletes, coaches/ administrators, and community supporters for future induction classes.

Support appreciated

September 18, 2011

Community support is needed to continue the DeWitt High School Athletic Hall of Fame. This annual event began in 2008 and has been made possible exclusively from donations received from DeWitt area residents and businesses. Although the DHS Athletic Hall of Fame is associated with DeWitt Public Schools, it is entirely funded by private donations. Since its inception, generous donations have allowed the purchase of plaques etched with each inducted member’s complete biography and photo which are mounted on the brick wall directly west of the gymnasium doors in the athletic and performing arts corridor of the high school. Donations may qualify as a tax deductible contribution for income tax purposes. Questions about making a financial contribution should be directed to the DeWitt High School athletic office at (517) 668-3143. Those interested in a donation may also print a donation form by accessing the DeWitt High School web page ( ) and clicking “High School Athletics” on the left-hand side of the page.

“We still have to get better throwing the ball, and we made some mistakes from a penalty standpoint that put us in a bind,” Zimmerman said. “I felt like we completely controlled the game. But we’ve got to iron some things out still before we can be on all four cylinders.” DeWitt faced rival Has-

lett on Friday, after press time. This Friday, the Panthers take on another team that is quickly becoming as big of a rival - St. Johns, which is now in the same CAAC Red. The Panthers and Redwings have split their last six games against each other.

William Michael Rushcamp Lansing Retired counselor of 30 years at DeWitt High School, born April 26, 1947 in Muske gon, passed away unexpectedly August 20, 2011 in Destin, Florida while on a family vacation. He was raised, surrounded by a tight knit circle of family and friends, in a world bracketed by sun, water and miles of sandy shoreline. A gifted storyteller, Bill could recall tales of his youth with vivid clarity and a poet’s narrative, which ran from touchingly poignant to uproar iously funny. Bill left Muskegon at the age of 18 to attend Western Michigan University, following in the steps of his beloved older brother, Tom. At WMU, he received his Bachelor’s Degree in English and History. Subsequently, he earned his Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling at WMU as well, after which he began his career at DeWitt High School in 1973. Bill’s work of 30 years at DeWitt involved guidance in college applications, the National Honor Society, and he created one of the mid-Michigan’s most stellar programs supporting young people with substance abuse and severe emotional difficulties. He formed support groups for these children and was instrumental in the training of hundreds of teachers to help them recognize and appropriately respond to these issues with referrals to his office and counseling. Bill was almost solely responsible for the facul ty’s awareness of how these problems affected student learning. His work with these students often changed the direction of their lives and his legacy lives on in their healthy survival. He felt a deep connection to and responsibility for "his kids" and he championed their ambitions, grieved for their strugles and celebrated their successes alongside them or from afar. He was an ardent fan of DeWitt Panther sports, the Quakers of Lansing Eastern High School, the Western Michigan Bronco’s and, of course, the Michigan Wolverines. An adventurous spirit, Bill traveled as often as time and circumstances allowed. He loved Paris, embraced Mexico and roamed the United States with great joy and deep curiosity. He and his wife, Dori, often traveled with close friends choosing to see the world with people they loved. Surviving him are his beloved wife of 40 years, Doriann; daughters, Heather (Jeff) Taylor, Erin (Don) Sweet; son, Matthew. Bill was a doting husband and an attentive, loving and involved father. He will also be dearly missed by his grandsons, Aiden and Liam Sweet and soon-to-be-born granddaughter, Baby Taylor. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Satur day, September 24, 2011 at DeWitt High School Audi torium, 13601 Panther Dr., DeWitt, MI with the Rev. Anthony Strouse officiating. The family will receive friends 1 hour prior to the service. Bill was a faithful man who cherished his family and friends above all else. His fearless approach to life was accompanied with a deep sense of empathy for others and an irreverent sense of humor. It is not an exaggeration to say that the world has lost a gentle and loving soul who touched the lives of his family, friends and countless DeWitt students and fellow educators. He will be deeply missed but his light will shine on in all the people that he touched throughout his life. He lived deeply, loved with abandon and greeted each day with open arms. Rest in peace and in the arms of God. On line condolences may be sent at:

Gold, Silver Jewelry RARE COINS & SETS f or sale: One includes complete 1956-2011 US Mint Proof Coins. In the a f ll of 2010, this set had a Red Book retail of $1,094.50. In mid-September, 2011, the retail a v lue of the set is now $1,964.90 with the surge in gold & silver. I would consider the best ofe f r over $1,300.00. I have a 1909 "VDB" US Penny rated by PCGS as MS64RB, then an 1885 CC Morgan Silver Dollar in BU, the 2nd lowest mintage of ALL Morgan Silver Dollars (228,000) a v lued at approx. $1,300.00 +. The end of an era set with a ’63 Franklin 50 cent piece & a ’64 Kennedy 50 cent piece both rated by NGC in PR67. There’s an 1878 "7" tail e f ather Uncirculated Morgan Silver Dollar & if nally a True American ARTIFACT Recovered rf om beneath the World Trade Center, at Ground Zero, rf om 9-112001. There was over $200 million in Gold & Silver coins locked in a v ults beneath the WTC. This coin is 1 of e f w that survie v d in such great condition. Only the renowned PCGS Coin Firm was granted entry to e v rify the Authenticity & the Grade of each coin. The coin I have o f r sale is Rated a "2001" $1 Silver Eagle PCGS Gem Unc, 9-1101, WTC Ground Zero Recovery Artifact. It comes with 2 other priceless items. The 1st is a 2011 "W" (West Point Mint) $1 Silver Eagle PCGS graded PR70DCAM. A proof 70 deep cameo is the most perfect condition that any coin can be graded & the 2nd item is a cofe f e table book of the World wide events that have taken place since that a f teful day 10 e y ars ago. The 3 come together as a set, the Artifact rf om below Ground Zero, the Perfect Coin struck this e v ry e y ar, & the book highlighting events of 10 e y ars. I have other coins & sets o f r sale, if o y u are seriously interested, o y u may call me on my cell phone at (517)-5250218. You will have to leave a message, but I will call o y u ASAP. Please leave o y ur phone # twice, so I am sure to get it. I must insist we meet at Dart bank in either Mason or South Holt.

The Township Board of DeWitt Charter Township is Seeking Public Input On a Proposed BMX/Mountain Bike Course The Township Board is seeking public input on a proposed hy brid BMX/Mountain Bike course on land within Padgett Park, a park located on the south side of Herbison Road west of Schavey Road. . A public/private partnership is proposed, between DeWitt Township and Bikeworks, non-exclusive, located in the Schavey Road Plaza. Volunteers would build a combination track and trail system on a few acres of overgrown land in the front section of Padgett Park. This land was an old grav el pit and has elevation changes suitable for a hybrid bike track and trail system. Ninety percent of the growth in the area would remain in place. Donations would have to cover construction costs and maintenance would also involve a public/private partnership utilizing volunteers. The proposed "adventure sport" track would be available for public use by both youth and adults, free of charge. Only non-motorized bikes would be authorized to utilize the track. The Township Board is soliciting public input at 7:00 p.m. at their September 26th Board meeting to be held at the Township Hall at 1401 W. Herbison Road, DeWitt, Michigan 48820. A sketch of the proposed track is available for viewing at the Clerk’s Office within the Township Hall from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Written comments are welcomed at the above address. Questions can be directed to the Township Manager, Rodney Taylor, at 668-0270 during the same business hours. Diane K.
