DeWitt Twp. debates adding assessment fee By KEN PALMER email@example.com

DeWITT TWP. — For awhile now, the township has been the only municipality in the Greater Lansing area that doesn’t charge residents a 1-percent fee for collecting taxes. But township officials say they might not be able to avoid it any longer. The Township Board will discuss adding the fee to tax bills during a public hearing on the budget on Oct. 14. Officials say adding the fee is the best way to ease a budget crunch fueled by declining property values and vanishing state revenue. “I’ve been on the board for 21 years, and the tax administrative fee has been discussed every year,,” Township Clerk Diane Mosier said. “We’re the only ones in the greater Lansing area that hasn’t done it. We’ve delayed it as long as we possible can.” The fee would be assessed on residents’ total tax bills and would generate about $170,000 a year in revenue for the township. The fee would cost the owner of a home with a taxable value of $100,000 about $30 a year, officials estimate. For years, the township has been trying to cope with falling revenue by budgeting conservatively, reorganizing departments, changing employees benefit levels and, applying for more grants, officials said. But if nothing changes, the township will soon reach a point where essential services such as police and fire protection are affected, they said.
Township leaders held an informational meeting in April to share financial information and poll residents about budget and funding issues, township Manager Rod Taylor said. Residents were asked about various options, including special millages for things like parks and roads, and reducing non-statutory services such as parks and police and fire protection, he said “They said we need to continue to cut costs and assess the administrative fee,” he said. Because of declining property values, most residents would still see a decrease in their tax bills if the administrative fee were added, Taylor said. Slightly more than a third would see a slight increase, he said. But, assessing fee wouldn’t solve all of the township’s budget problems, he said “We believe that with the administrative fee added, we’re still going to have to cut $350,000 (from the 2012 budget),” Taylor said. “Without the TAF, it would be $700,000.” The proposed 2011 budget of nearly $5.6 million is higher than last year because the township is buying two new fire trucks, officials said. The cost will partially offset by A $261,000 grant The township can no longer delay that expense, Taylor said. Local governments are allowed to assess a 1-percent administrative fee to cover the cost of assessing property, sending out bills and collecting tax money. The township spends about $331,000 a year on those tasks but receives only about 10 percent of the total, Taylor said.

Letters to the editor Bob Showers is running for re-election for 5th District County Commissioner in November. A dedicated and active member of our community, he is accessible, attentive and responsive when residents bring concerns to his attention. Bob has followed through on promises made to maintain essential public services without going over budget. He values and promotes both green initiatives and business-friendly policies that will bring good, sustainable jobs to the area. Bob Showers understands the needs and priorities of the people of Clinton County. He has served with distinction as 5th District County Commissioner, and has earned my support this Nov. 2. Maria Ostrander DeWitt
example, Ingham County is projecting a deficit of somewhere between $5 million and $8 million. Despite decreasing revenue, Clinton County has, yet again, balanced the budget for 2011. While, no doubt, equal credit should be given to all of the commissioners, Commissioner Adam Stacey has played an integral role in improving the county during his tenure. First, during Commissioner Stacey’s tenure, the county has taken great strides to enhance its financial status. Specifically, the county has improved its bond rating; this improved rating gives the county access to better financial opportunities, which will help the county remain fiscally secure for years to come. Second, Commissioner Stacey has also supported a number of projects that add to the quality of life for Clinton County’s citizenry. For example, Commissioner Stacey voted to
triple the county’s park land, preserving this park area for future generations. Also, during his tenure, the county constructed its first park – Motz County Park. This was done with substantial state and private grant dollars, which drastically reduced the costs per taxpayer, while providing a tremendous benefit to the entire county. The costs to build this park? A one-time expense of $6 per person. Simply put, Commissioner Adam Stacey is the ideal choice for a commissioner – he strives to increase the quality of life for county residents while maintaining the fiscal security of the county. What more could you ask for? So voters in the 7th District take note - vote to retain Commissioner Stacey on Nov. 2. Chris Trudeau DeWitt Township
Showers has earned our support

Partisanship crippling state’s budget process Things legislative have not improved since the English Lord Protector told the “Rump Parliament” to get out of town in 1653. Three hundred and fifty-seven years later, the Michigan legislature had the audacity to congratulate itself on completing the fiscal 2011 budget a mere day ahead of the Oct. 1st legal deadline. Actually, since the Higher Education appropriation bill had not yet been signed by midnight, the government didn’t even accomplish that, making this the third time in the last four years they’ve blown it. They had all year to get the job done, and they made a mess of it. Once again, “kick the can down the road” was the favorite game in Lansing. Apart from reforming the public school employee retirement system, lawmakers made virtually no structural changes in the organization, workings or cost of government at all levels.
That’s something that has to happen if we are ever going to start to overcome our chronically and structurally unbalanced budget. Responsible citizens would have been happy if our lawmakers had actually done something useful, rather than -- once again -- taking a pass and leaving a mess to the next crop of Michigan leaders, who also legally have to come up with a balanced budget. Doing that by the Sept. 30 deadline next year will be tough. Best estimate is the budget will be at least $1.6 billion in the red, and that doesn’t count problems that so far have escaped notice. For starters, here’s a check list of things done and left un-
done: • Higher education, by all accounts our crown jewel and the core of any hope to improve our economy, took a 2.8 percent cut. Michigan, which desperately needs a better educated workforce, has been instead leading the nation in cutting support for public colleges and universities; we continue to spend more money warehousing felons in state prisons than on educating our young people. • The widely acclaimed “Pure Michigan” TV advertising campaign was cut to $4.5 million, far below what is needed for an effective buy. Leaders in the state’s tourist industry say business was up this year because of the campaign. Economists calculate the program brings three dollars into the state for every one spent. Nevertheless, a shortsighted legislature cut their funding. • Michigan’s unionized state employees got a 3 per-

cent wage increase for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1, the last year of a three-year contract that called for no pay increase in fiscal year 2009 and a 1 percent increase last year. • Governor Jennifer Granholm, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop and Democratic House Speaker Andy Dillon all swore to eliminate the 20 percent Michigan Business Tax surcharge. Did they do it? Did they even try very hard? Nope. • And everybody agreed two-year budgeting makes lots of sense, especially in times of economic trouble. That, too, got forgotten in the rush to get out of town and campaign. What is remarkable in this time of economic disaster is the sheer lack of urgency exhibited by our elected leaders. Michigan is facing the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes and we are smaller, poorer and less well endowed than we were a decade ago.
Those facts alone scream out for a coherent, focused competitive strategy to put Michigan on the right track and get our financial house in order. But you saw none of that from Lansing. Come to think of it, what the legislature did runs exactly counter to any rational competitive strategy might suggest. Want evidence? The first two examples I mentioned tell the story: 1.) Once again, everyone knows that the skill and talent of our young people is our greatest asset. The collapse of the brawn-based auto economy means we desperately need a better educated work force. And yet the legislature this year chose yet again to cut appropriations for public colleges and universities. What were they thinking? 2.) Our unrivaled natural resources and environment bring tourists here from all around the world, yet our law-
makers couldn’t find a few bucks to continue “Pure Michigan,“ the most successful advertising program in state history. Why? In large part, because Republicans refused to vote for what they consider a Democratic program. This year’s budget shows yet again that our politics are paralyzed by excessive partisanship, lack of political will and failure of leadership. For our state’s future, one can only hope the election, now only weeks away, will produce a better crop of leaders than those we’ve had to endure in recent years. *** Editor’s Note: Former newspaper publisher and University of Michigan Regent Phil Power is the founder and president of The Center for Michigan.

Letters to the editor Vote for Drake for 85th House Over the past eight years one of the major stumbling blocks in getting anything done in the Michigan legislature is the partisan politics played by legislators who have their post-legislative careers more in mind than the interests of the people they represent. Game playing and controversy has become a way of life. We need legislators who can put aside the disagreements and can build collaborations and consensus. We need legislators who are willing to work with each other Democrats and Republicans. We need legislators who understand issues and are willing to work extremely hard to do their jobs. In meeting and talking with Pamela Drake, who is running for the 85th District House of Representatives seat, we have seen Pamela’s commitment to the principles of hard work and collaboration to get things done. She has experience working in legislative offices and knows the importance of understanding the details of each bill and how they will impact people’s lives. We have heard her talk passionately about working with other legislators, not against them, to find solutions to our state’s economic problems. Pamela Drake will bring a fresh and refreshing attitude of collaboration with her fellow legislators and will do everything she can to represent the best interests of her constituents. If you want to know more about Pamela Drake, go to her website, www.drakeforrep.com Marion and Ralph Gorton Perry
mented numerous middle class tax cuts, and saved Michigan’s automotive industry and thousands of jobs. Don’t be mislead by Republican generalized mischaracterizations of who Democrats are, rather, in each instance, check the facts of what Democrats have accomplished. Democrats are making our townships, counties, and country a better place for all of us, not just a privileged few. So vote for Democrats at all levels of government. Robert M. Hurand East Lansing
Allegations by letter writer untrue
After reading Sheri Willis’ letter in last week’s DeWitt-Bath Review, it seemed obvious that she is completely unaware about what is happening in Bath Township. Her allegations are patently untrue. Every regular Bath Township board meeting is opened with the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence. The Bath Township website posts its board minutes after every meeting. If she checked it she would see the many positive things this board is doing in our community. Smearing Marie Howe, a strong and viable candidate for the Clinton County Commission, and maligning the Bath Township Board of Trustees, detracts from this campaign. Her opponent Mr. Stacey should be embarrassed to have someone with such views on his side. Mrs. Willis’ message lacks substance and is a disingenuous act to discredit Marie Howe who would be an excellent county commissioner. She has approached this race with intelligent analysis of the issues, honesty and integrity. My choice is to vote for MaDemocrats have improved Bath rie Howe, Clinton County Commissioner.

Letters to the editor Pledge still recited in Bath Twp. Once again, Bath residents were subjected to the worn out and dishonest rhetoric stating in essence that the Bath Township Board eliminated the Pledge of Allegiance. This falsehood was printed yet again in last weeks DeWitt-Bath Review in a letter to the editor written by Sheri Willis. I am not aware of which meetings Sheri Willis attends, but the Pledge has not been eliminated at Bath. I know this first hand – I attend every meeting. The timing of these falsehoods regarding the Bath Township Board seemed a bit suspect until I got to the part where Ms. Willis also included Marie Howe, candidate for Clinton County Commissioner, in the erroneous mix. The Willis’ are working against Marie Howe in a hotly contested Clinton County Commissioner campaign. As a public official, and an Election Committee member, I applaud the efforts of anyone willing to spend their valuable time working for the candidate of their choice. That’s part of what our great democracy is all about. However, to clear up confusion created by Ms. Willis’ letter; for the record, Marie Howe lives in Bath Township, she holds no position on any township boards or
committees, and is not an employee of Bath Township. I can also attest that when Ms. Howe attends our board meetings she joins us in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. What I don’t understand is how Ms. Willis got this so wrong. Her husband, Steve Willis, often attends Bath board meetings, and he also recites the Pledge of Allegiance along side the rest of us. Rick Curtis Bath Township Trustee
Change has been good in Bath Twp. In last week’s DeWitt-Bath Review Sheri Willis wrote that the Bath Township Board eliminated the Pledge, raised taxes, and has eroded our rights. My oh my, how busy these people must have been. I wonder when they found the time to do such damage while giving us a new farmer’s market, a new fish-
ing dock at Park Lake, and a new pavilion at Wiswasser Park in addition to all their regular duties. Maybe they raised our taxes in between one of the five recall attempts. Nope – didn’t happen. Bath has not raised our taxes – period. Maybe they eroded our rights shortly after they turned our senior center into a success, and just before they got the kids out of traffic by putting a sidewalk on Webster Road. Funny thing, I can’t think of one of my rights being “eroded.” The truth is, at Bath Township the Pledge of Allegiance is given at every board meeting. I’m glad I no longer have to rely on “Hope” because the “Change” is good. Don Parkey Bath Township

Bath police arrest one for assault email@example.com
BATH TWP. — A township man was arrested after his live-in girlfriend accused him of assaulting her in a dispute over missing money. Township police were called to the Hawk’s Ridge apartments in the early morning hours of Oct. 4 to take the complaint. The victim, 57, said the suspect, 51, yelled at her and accused her of stealing $400 when she walked in the door that morning. She said he pushed her twice and struck her in the face and shoulder with his fist. The suspect, who denied assaulting the woman, was taken to the Clinton County Jail. Man eludes police A driver bailed out of a car and ran as a township officer stopped him for
speeding on Sept. 28. The incident occurred about 8:30 p.m. on Park Lake Road, south of State Road, police reports said. As the officer tried to stop him, the driver of the black Jaguar pulled into a driveway and ran east through residential yards. Officers from DeWitt and Meridian townships and a canine team from the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department helped search for the suspect but were unable to find him. A passenger in the car, who could identify the driver only by his first name, said the man told him he didn’t have a driver’s license. The car’s owner of car contacted police and said she had loaned the car to her cousin from Toledo. Charges pending in break-in Police are seeking charges against several suspects in an Aug. 17 home
burglary on Watson Road. In mid-September, Lansing police recovered a computer stolen in the break-in and contacted township police and the victim, township police said. A warrant request for home invasion was forwarded to the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office, they said. Failure to report A 22-year-old man was expected to face charges after he was involved in an accident and failed to report it. On Oct. 3, the man was eastbound on Coleman Road at Peacock Road when he lost control on a curve and hit a tree, township police said. The driver did not immediately report he accident, but his father called police at a later time. The driver is being charged with failing to report an accident and leaving the scene of an accident, police said.

“It’s better if they are all here on Count Day,” Huffman said. “We definitely encourage families to do the best they can to make sure their children are all here. “We had pretty good fortune this year. I had all but four kids show up at the middle school.”
Band will cap the day with an exhibition performance of this season’s show: The Four Freedoms. This piece is a musical interpretation of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union Address to the United States Congress. In the “Four Freedoms” address, FDR made the case for American assistance in World War II by enumerating the four universal freedoms worth fighting for: freedom of speech, freedom from want, freedom of worship, and freedom from fear. The DeWitt Marching Band is proud to perform this patriotic show, an original composition by Frank Sullivan and Keith Ford. The 135 DeWitt Band members dedicate this performance to all the men and women that have sacrificed to the ideals that make our nation the place where freedom will never be trampled or forsaken.
You’re invited to....
Various awards will be presented to the participating bands at the conclusion of the competition, including best marching, best music, best drum line, best color guard, and best field command. An overall grand champion will also be recognized. Six judges, well respected in the field of high school marching band competition, will adjudicate the meet. Admission to this event is $5 per adult, $3 for senior citizens and children ages 5-12, children under 5 are free. The proceeds from the admission fees, concessions, and other charges will be used to cover the costs of holding this event. Any remaining receipts will be used to further the mission of the DeWitt Bands. For more information, visit www.dewittband.org. — From the DeWitt band program

BATH TWP. — A surge in enrolment this fall will mean a better bottom line for the Bath Community Schools. The district’s preliminary fall student count of about 985 is 30 more than officials had budgeted for, Superintendent Jake Huffman said. In raw numbers, that would mean an extra $220,000 for the district from the state’s per-pupil funding allowance. “It looks like we’ll end up at 985 or 986,” Huffman said. “We had a few more families move into the district and a few more Schools of Choice students. One of the biggest boosts came from families moving into the Hawk’s Ridge complex.” The district picked up 18 students from the new apartment complex south of I-69, he said. Student Count Day on Sept. 29 was a big day for local school districts because it largely determines how much funding they’ll receive from the state. In the DeWitt Public Schools, enrollment came very close to what leaders anticipated at budget time, The district’s enrollment of 3,028 students was just two shy of the projected 3,030, interim Superintendent Tom Davis said. “Whoever guesstimated that number came pretty close,’ Davis said. Student Count Day numbers can change slightly because students who are absent from school that day can still be counted. But that process can be tedious, school officials said.

Keep pets from New author tells interesting tale eating mushrooms Most pets have no desire to eat mushrooms. They may want to play by tossing them in the air and catching them but are not all that interested in eating the fungi. Most of the mushrooms commonly found around our homes, in area forests and fields are not toxic. Nor are they the type identified as Psilocybe mexicana that contain the hallucinogen “Psilocybin”. There are a number of other mushrooms that are toxic to pets. These other varieties generally affect the liver and kidneys. Most commonly we see puppies affected because they are the most inquisitive and the least likely leave things alone! In general, it is a good idea to keep pets from eating any type of

mushroom. Should they ingest part of the mushroom or the entire mushroom you should induce vomiting to rid their body of the toadstool type growth.

The story “Russian Winter” by first time novelist Daphne Kalotay is told in a series of flashbacks. Nina “The Butterfly” Revskaya is a 79 year old Russian ballerina who is about to sell her jewelry collection for the benefit of the Boston Ballet. Two people are obsessed with the sale. One is Drew Brooks who works for the auction house handling the sale. The other is the Russian professor Grigori Solodin. Once progress is made on the sale catalog, an anonymous donation is made to the sale. Nina had an antique set of earrings and a bracelet which were set with amber. The items had a unique Russian setting and the mark of a Moscow
What Helen is reading Helen Davis
jeweler. The new item was an amber pendant which matched the other items in every way. Nina claimed that her items had been in her husband’s family and she knew nothing about the pendant. Nina had begun ballet training at a very early age in Moscow. Her father had died, so it was her mother who made sure that her talent was nurtured. When Nina entered ballet school, her friend Vera also began. Shortly after the two girls started, Vera’s par-
ents were taken away in the night. Vera then had to go live with an aunt and grandmother in Leningrad. This was a time of political turmoil when someone could be imprisoned simply for listening to the wrong music if someone informed on them. Nina realized that her mother was sending Vera messages disguised as telegrams from her parents so Vera would not feel so deserted. The planned sale of her jewelry is an attempt by Nina to bring her artistic life to an end. She is now crippled by pain and spends her time in a wheelchair. Instead of closing off her past, Nina reminisces about her early career. With natural talent and hard work, she became a premier
ballerina with the Bolshoi Ballet. She married Viktor, a Party operative, and then was surprised to learn that he came from an aristocratic family. The descriptions of life in Stalinist Russia are fascinating. Even though the couple are privileged citizens, they live in one room and have illegally partitioned off space for Viktor’s mother. Nina and Vera are reunited and dance together at the Bolshoi. Nina defected to the west, and her story is continued in a series of flashbacks. The story of the jewels’ connection to Nina and Grigori has a Russian sadness. Helen Davis is a staff member at the DeWitt Public Library

Be watchful for home heating system scams chanical contractors if a furnace repair or replacement is recommended. If you subsequently sign a contract for work, make sure it stipulates that final payment is not due until the mandatory inspection by the mechanical code enforcing agency is approved. • Do ask to see the Michigan mechanical contractor’s license and write down the contractor and license number listed on it. • Do verify that the license is valid and issued for the proper classifications for the type of work being performed. You can check this information by visiting the Bureau’s website at http://www.michigan.gov/ bcclicense or by calling the Bureau’s Mechanical Division at (517) 241-9325. • Don’t fall for telephone solicitations that offer “low-cost” or “free” furnace cleaning. Once in the dwelling, the worker may tell the homeowners their heating system has serious problems that require immediate attention. Get a written description of the suggested work and seek a second opinion. • Don’t sign a contract just because the worker says you face possible illness or death if the furnace isn’t replaced immediately. If told your furnace threatens your health, ask for a written copy of the technician’s test results and call your local utility company. • Don’t hire someone who comes to your door with a Shop-Vac vacuum offering to clean your heating ducts. It will not do the job. A proper cleaning requires a high volume vacuum system and maybe even a steam process.

LANSING — This is the time of year to get your furnace cleaned and ready for winter. Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth (DELEG) Acting Director Andrew S. Levin offers some sensible tips to avoid getting burned by furnace fixing “scam artists.” “Most mechanical contractors are honest and reputable. However, there are heating and cooling ‘scam artists’ that become more active this time of year and may try to frighten you into repairing or replacing your home heating system, even when it’s functioning properly,” Levin said. “Unfortunately, unsuspecting homeowners, many of them being senior citizens, become victims of fraudulent and unscrupulous activities. We are alerting consumers so they have the information to stop the scam artists in their tracks.” In the past, the DELEG Bureau of Construction Codes has been involved in cases where elderly residents have been scammed out of thousands of dollars in needless heating and cooling repairs and equipment. These situations can be avoided by knowing how to recognize questionable and potentially fraudulent contractors. Levin said the Bureau of Construction Codes offers some important tips: • Do maintain your furnace by cleaning air returns with a household vacuum cleaner. Check the filter once a month and replace if necessary. This will maintain efficiency and prolong the life of the furnace. • Do get your heating system thoroughly cleaned by a reputable, licensed, local mechanical contractor a minimum of every two years. • Do get at least three independent written estimates from Michigan licensed me-

Larger is More These days, the “less-is-more” principle dictates that we set aside CD players for iPods and talk into razor-thin cell phones. While small certainly has its advantages, sometimes larger is more. Among hearing instruments, in-the-ear and in-the-canal models offer the advantage of being barely noticeable. On the other hand, a traditional behind-the-ear model may be larger but it is also more powerful, easier to use, and makes use of longer-lasting batteries. Behind-the-ear hearing instruments, which consist of an earmold and plastic housing that fits neatly behind the ear, may also provide

October designated as Bullying Awareness Month ST. JOHNS — October is Bullying Awareness Month. Nationally this marks the fifth anniversary of Bullying Awareness Month. Clinton County Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council is supporting Bullying Awareness Month efforts and are asking for the support of residents as well. If anyone is interested in participating or helping with these efforts they should call (989) 224-8845. Throughout the month of October efforts to raise the awareness of community members related to bullying and prevention of bullying will be occurring. According to Clinton County Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth Survey results, 74.9 percent of high school students who responded in Clinton County have seen students get pushed, hit, or punched one or more times during the past 12 months at school. 66.2 percent of high school students in Clinton County who responded reported they have heard students threaten to hurt other students one or more times during
the past 12 months. Now is the time to address bullying and make sure that individuals know bullying will not be tolerated, let individuals know how to respond to situations they see and how to report these situations. Bystanders of bullying situations can have a huge impact by stepping in and letting the bully know that the behavior is not tolerated. The situation needs to be reported so that the situation can be handled and appropriate measures taken to stop any further situations from occurring. Please report any situation of bullying to a higher authority. If it is in school, let an administrator know. If it is at work, let a boss know. Anyone in the community can report bullying situations anonymously to the local police department. In October the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council is raising the community’s awareness level related
to bullying and prevention. Oct. 20 marks a designated day called D-Day. D-Day is recognized as a day to wear pink shirts to support efforts against bullying. Residents are asked to join the staff on D-Day and wear a pink shirt to let those around them know that bullying is not an acceptable behavior. — From the Clinton County Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council

LANSING — October and November are the two most dangerous months in Michigan for deer/vehicle crashes. Vehicle/ deer crashes can cause more than just damage to the outside of the vehicle. The 61,486 crashes in 2009 resulted in 1,571 injuries and 10 deaths. In 2009, all 10 deer crash fatalities involved motorcyclists. That is why the Michigan Deer Crash Coalition (MDCC) has developed new safety tips for motorcyclists. “Motorcyclists are vulnerable to deer
crashes as they travel Michigan’s roadways,” said Coalition Chair Lori Conarton of the Insurance Institute of Michigan. “Reducing the number of injuries and fatalities from these types of crashes is a priority for the coalition.” Motorcyclists should: • Be alert for deer whenever they ride. Deer-vehicle crashes happen in urban, suburban and rural areas. • Slow down. Decreasing speed gives a motorcyclist more time to spot an animal and react.
Clinton County Arts Council offering youth art classes ST. JOHNS — There’s more to fall than football and even if you’re a fan of the game, the schedule of activities at Clinton County Arts Council offers an exciting change. Especially for youngsters and those into creating their own jewelry. Leading the agenda is a schedule of two jewelry classes – Oct. 21 and 28 – under the guidance of Debra Laverty along with a two-hour children’s art class Saturday, Oct. 23, conducted by Barb Darling. The two beading class sessions offered by Ms. Laverty will be held at the Council’s Gallery, 215 N. Clinton Ave. in St. Johns. Students will create a personalized bracelet and another individual charm. Registration for either class date is $30. Meanwhile, the children’s art class will be held at the Depot location and regis-
tration for that session is $10 per student. Students participating in the class will complete two projects, a seasonal themed painting involving trees in autumn and a wax resist with leaves. In the midst of this active schedule, local artist Tom Tomasek will be conducting a special pastel painting demonstration at the Gallery, Thursday, Oct. 14, at 6:30 p.m. The demonstration is designed to assist students in better understanding of the process of pastel painting in preparation for his pastel painting class. This event is scheduled to last no more than two hours. Persons interested in any of the scheduled events may seek details by visiting or calling the Arts Council Gallery at (989) 224-2429. — From the Clinton County Arts Council
• Cover the brakes to reduce reaction time. • Use high beam headlights and additional driving light when possible. • If riding in a group, spread out riders in a staggered formation. If one rider hits a deer, this will lessen the chance that other riders will be involved. • Wear protective gear at all times. In 2009, Michigan experienced an increase the number of total vehicle/deer crashes. According to the Michigan State Police Criminal Justice Information Center, there were 61,486 deer/vehicle crashes in 2009, up from the 61,010 crashes reported in 2008. However, officials note that many crashes also go unreported, so actual crash numbers are much higher. In 2009, Kent County once again topped the state’s counties in the number of cardeer crashes with 2,164 crashes. The remaining top 10 were Oakland (1,947), Jackson (1,877), Calhoun (1,659), Montcalm (1,641), Lapeer (1,455), Clinton (1,428), Genesee (1,420), Eaton (1,384) and Ottawa (1,300). All motorists should ‘think deer’ whenever they are behind the wheel, and drive
defensively, as if a deer can appear at any moment, because they can! And all motorists should remember to always fasten their safety belts. Safety belts often make the difference in surviving a serious crash. The MDCC says motorists can help avoid dangerous encounters with deer by heeding the following tips: • Watch for deer especially at dawn and dusk. • If you see one deer, approach cautiously, as there may be more out of sight. • Deer often travel single file, so if you see one cross a road, chances are more are nearby waiting to cross, too. When startled by an approaching vehicle, they can panic and dart out from any direction without warning. • Be alert all year long, especially on two-lane roads. Watch for deer warning signs. They are placed at known deercrossing areas and serve as a first alert that deer may be near. Slow down when traveling through deer-population areas. — From the Michigan Deer Crash Coalition

Hunters reminded of Maple River changes LANSING — As duck season approaches in southern Michigan, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment reminds waterfowl hunters of several changes at the Maple River State Game Area north of Lansing. The DNRE’s Wildlife Division has begun a long-term rehabilitation project on the wetland management units of Maple River State Game Area with a goal of providing more and better waterfowl habitat and hunting opportunity. The management plan also calls for improving upland habitat to provide better nesting conditions for waterfowl and pheasants. Over the next two to three years, waterfowl hunting opportunities will be limited as the plan is implemented. Work began this summer in Unit A (west of US-127) with a drawdown that will take one to two years while major dike repairs take place. As a result, the water level is extremely low with some areas reduced to mud flats or even dry ground. Waterfowl use can be expected to be minimal
in Unit A this fall unless there is enough rain to flood some of the annual weeds now growing there. However, these wetlands will be revitalized and will be more productive once repairs are completed. Units C and D, east of US-127 and toward the eastern edge of the area, are now designated as waterfowl refuge and are off-limits to hunters and others from Sept. 1 through Dec. 1. The refuge will offer an undisturbed area for migrating waterfowl and is expected to keep more birds in the area during the waterfowl hunting season. The boat access ramps in Unit A and B have been upgraded and plans also call for upgrading the wetland hunting/photography blind in Unit B. Upland grassland management has already begun. Wildlife Division staffers mowed multiple fields in February and March to set back encroaching shrubs and improve nesting cover. Wildlife Division personnel are evaluating opportunities to create better drainage and improve the ag-
riculture program as well. “We realize there will be some short-term sacrifice by waterfowl hunters at Maple River,” said Barbara Avers, the DNRE Waterfowl and Wetlands specialist. “But in the long run, we expect Maple River State Game Area will hold more waterfowl for longer periods of time and will provide more and better waterfowl hunting opportunities.” For more information on the wetland management at Maple River State Game Area, visit the DNRE Wildlife Division’s website “Working for Wildlife” at www.michigan.gov/ workingforwildlife. — From the Michigan DNRE

Are there laws that affect the hiring processes? Is there a proper way to interview? Are offer letters and job descriptions really that important? During this session, you
will learn about the valuable bottom-line payoff to selecting the right person to join your organization. Leaving the organization We all know that employment is at-will, right? I can fire whomever I want? If you have ever thought this to yourself, you are wrong.

Governor sets statewide Fire Prevention Week LANSING — Governor Jennifer M. Granholm proclaimed the week of Oct. 3-9 as Fire Prevention Week in Michigan to encourage homeowners to focus on having several functioning smoke alarms to provide the critical early warning needed to escape a home fire. “Many homes may still have only one smoke alarm and that’s simply not enough,” said Michigan State Fire Marshal Ronald R. Farr. “Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of the home, including the basement, and in every bedroom – not just near them, to ensure that everyone is alerted in time to escape fire safely.” The Michigan Bureau of Fire Services joins the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and other state and national organizations in recognizing Fire Prevention Week. This year’s campaign “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With” is working to motivate consumers to actively determine whether they have proper smoke alarm protection throughout their homes.
“I encourage everyone to explore newer, more comprehensive options for smoke alarms,” said Farr. “For larger, multi-level homes especially, the interconnected smoke alarms offer the best protection because when one sounds, they all do. Also, consider installing a 10-year lithium battery-powered smoke alarm, which is sealed so it cannot be tampered with or opened.”
Smoke alarm tips Farr suggests the following tips for making sure smoke alarms are maintained and working properly: • Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the test button, and make sure everyone in your home knows their sound. • Change smoke alarm batteries every year. • If an alarm “chirps,” warning the battery is low, replace the battery immediately. • Replace all smoke alarms including
alarms that use 10-year batteries and hard wired alarms when they’re 10 years old (or sooner) if they do not respond properly when tested. • Never remove or disable a smoke alarm. “Take time to develop and review your family’s home escape plan, and then practice it to make sure everyone knows what to do in an emergency,” said Farr. “In less than three minutes, your home could be totally engulfed in flames. Every second counts and members of your family should know how to react quickly and calmly. This only happens when everyone knows what to do if a fire does occur and practices their plan routinely.” Consider these statistics: • According to the latest NFPA research, 3,000 people each year nationally, including more than 120 people in Michi-

A 23-yard pass to Jacob Higbie and a 20-yard pass to Jordan Johnson set up a threeyard touchdown pass to Johnson with time running out in the first quarter. The Gladiators drove to the DeWitt 23-yard line before the drive stalled and the Panthers took over on downs. On the Panthers’ first play, Caleb Higbie faked a handoff to the right side and broke left, picking up 33 yards. Caleb Higbie next passed to Potrykus for a 41-yard gain, setting up a three-yard touchdown run by Nathaniel
Deak. Fowlerville threatened on its next possession, driving down to the DeWitt 10-yard line. A Tim Wedesky pass was picked off in the end zone by Jacob Higbie to stop the Gladiator threat. DeWitt mounted an 18-drive play that was capped off with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Potrykus to put the Panthers up 27-0 with 24 seconds left in the first half. The second half was much the same, with DeWitt’s offense controlling the ball and the defense stopping the Gladiators. DeWitt went up 34-0 on a 10-yard pass from Caleb Higbie to Jacob Hig-
bie. On the Panthers’ next possession, the same Higbie to Higbie connection worked for an 11-yard scoring pass. Wieber showed his speed on DeWitt’s final possession, rushing for a 25-yard gain then Wieber followed with a 32-yard scoring run. Johnson caught eight passes for 127 yards. Jacob Higbie had five catches for 67 yards. Potrykus caught two passes for 55 yards. Ethan Rennaker led the Panther defense with eight solo tackles. Collin Rennaker had six tackles. Alex Harless, Dylan Keener, Jacob Higbie Deak each had five tackles.

FOWLERVILLE — Senior quarterback Caleb Higbie passed for 249 yards and four touchdowns to lead DeWitt to a 47-0 drubbing of Fowlerville in a CAAC Golf contest. Higbie also ran for 140 yards, including breaking loose for an 80-yard touchdown run for the first DeWitt score. The Panthers have a 6-0 season record and are guaranteed a playoff berth. DeWitt has made the playoffs all but once since 2000. Coming into the game, DeWitt and Fowlerville each had 3-0 league records. The win gave the Panthers at least a share of the league title. DeWitt played Ionia Oct. 8 in the last league game of the season. A win over the Bulldogs (2-4) will give DeWitt sole possession of the CAAC Gold title. DeWitt’s offense was explosive against the Gladiators, rolling up 521 total yards, averaging more than 10 yards per play. It was also a night for the Panther defense to exert itself, holding the Gladiators to 186 yards with 60 yards coming on Fowlerville’s last drive of the game. “I was happy with our defensive effort,” DeWitt coach Rob Zimmerman said. “They responded to a little bit of criticism last week about not playing up to their capabilities. To shut Fowlerville out is a pretty good accomplishment because Fowlerville is a very good football team.” Fowlerville (4-2, 3-1)
managed only three drives deep into DeWitt territory, and each time the Panther defense was up to the challenge. The first drive was early in the second quarter, but the Panther defense forced the Gladiators turned the ball over on downs. The second drive ended with DeWitt’s Jacob Higbie intercepting a pass in the end zone. The third drive was late in the game and time ran out with the ball inside the Panther 10-yard line. Senior linebacker Dylan Keener said the defensive unit was ready to step up. “The whole team was looking forward to this game all week. I was just focused and in the right mindset the whole day,” Keener said. “We really came together tonight…We worked our tails off and I think we did really well.” Keener had five solo tackles, two assists and a bone-jarring sack on Gladiator quarterback Tim Wedesky for an 18-yard loss. “It felt good, I was looking for the opportunity to make that hit,” Keener said. “It was a big one.” DeWitt’s first score came with about three minutes left in the first quarter when Caleb Higbie broke around left end and sprinted 80 yards for the touchdown. As Higbie was breaking for the end zone, DeWitt receiver Ryan Potrykus threw an open field block that took out two would-be Fowlerville tacklers. On Fowlerville’s next drive, DeWitt defensive back Ryan Wieber inter-

Engine troubles plague Finley By BILL McLEOD firstname.lastname@example.org
KANSAS CITY, Kansas — Engine problems continue to plague DeWitt’s Chad Finley on the ARCA circuit. Finley, an 18-year-old DeWitt resident, was stopped short in his last two races, both times with smoke bellowing out from the hood as he was moving up through the pack. In his most recent race, Sept. 30 at the Kansas Lottery 150, Finley qualified 12th and had moved into fourth place before his engine blew up on the 23rd lap. Finley was fourth fastest during time trials on the 1.5-mile tri-oval track. Two weeks before, Finley’s engine let go at the Chicagoland Speedway as he was making his run at the leaders. He finished 23rd at Chicago. “I’m at a loss for words on this one,”
Finley said. “Once again we had an awesome race car and our expectations were real high. We were just cruising along there going to the front and the motor just let go. We just can’t seem to shake the monkey off our back I guess.” Finley, who races for Brad Keselowski Racing on a limited schedule, will make one last ARCA appearance this season, traveling to the Rockingham Speedway in North Carolina Oct. 9. Last year Finley won the pole and led for several laps at Rockingham, finishing 15th. This season Finley took third at the Messina Wildlife Stopper 200 at Pocono. He was 11th at the Rattlesnake 100 at Texas Motor Speedway and 11th at the Michigan International Speedway. Information on Finley is available at www.chadfinleyracing.com.
