MDOT outlines plan

By MARY JO WHITE

DELTA TWP. - It was standing room only at the Delta Township administration building Feb. 15 when Michigan Department of Transportation experts laid out the details of two projects that will improve Saginaw Highway starting this spring. Both projects will be completed by the end of this season’s construction period in September. “This project is a cost effective solution that will preserve our pavement,” said MDOT spokesperson Kari Arend. “It’s a long-term fix that will cut back on future maintenance costs.” A $5-million rehab project, which will be done in three sections starting April 5, will run from Knights Inn Drive to Rosemary Street in Lansing Township. The first segment of this project will run from Knights Inn Drive to Mall Drive West from April until late July. Part of the time the two lanes of westbound traffic will continue on Saginaw, with eastbound traffic detoured. Later there will be one lane on Saginaw in each direction, with a center-turn lane. The second segment of this project, from Mall Drive West to Waverly Road will occur from mid-July until late September and the third, from Waverly Road to Rosemary Street, will happen between early May until mid-July. Both of these will see westbound traffic maintained with an eastbound detour.

Waverly mulls closing one building, adding an all-day kindergarten to close gap By MARY JO WHITE mjwhite@lsj.com

Rochelle VanDeventer, MDOT manager for the first Saginaw Hwy. road construction project from Marketplace to Knights Inn Drive, talks details with Jeff Crippen of Crippen Auto Mall, Feb. 15. A second project will improve Saginaw from Knight’s Inn Drive to Rosemary Street in Lansing Township. Another project, which is part of the two-year, $40-million full reconstruction on Interstate-96, will run from Marketplace Blvd. to Knights Inn Drive and is slated to start in June and be finished in August. The cement on I-96 was due for replacement, having been laid in the 1960s, MDOT project manager Rochelle VanDeventer told the audience. This project will include a sidewalk on the south side of Saginaw from Canal to Marketplace. There will also be improvements to the Saginaw-Canal intersection, with dual left-turn lanes in all di-

February 20, 2011

DELTA TWP. - Closing one of Waverly’s buildings and starting an all-day kindergarten are part of a draft plan for the district presented by superintendent Debra Jones to the public Feb. 10. The community forum at Waverly Middle School was the second in a series of community meetings. Jones said there are no plans to sell whichever building is eventually closed. “In my world,” she said, “we’ll grow and need it again.” The result of the work of several committees made up of parents, staff and school board members, as well as input from on-line surveys, the plan calls for an Early Childhood Center that would include all of the district’s pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade students. Two other buildings would serve grades two through four, with Waverly East, the middle school and the high school staying the same. Each building would have its own principal, plus three to five teachers per grade level. This reconfiguration

would allow teachers at the same grade level to work more closely with each other and class sizes to be more even. In addition, each school’s library would have more grade level materials. All of the district’s items for the youngest students, for example, would be housed at the Early Childhood Center instead of being split among four buildings.. Child care would be streamlined, too, with all before and after-school care scheduled in one building and transportation provided by the district to and from students’ “home schools.” There would be no child care during the school day. “This is the time to do it,” Jones said of the reconfiguration. “It (the district) is going to be set up right, K to 12.” Jones said there would be no extra furniture, supplies or materials needed for the reconfiguration. The main cost would be certified staff for the all-day kindergarten. The draft calls for changes at the high school, too. These include having the same final exam and grading procedures for all sections of a class, with teachers working together to figure See

Voluntary pay supports your newspaper A fter many years in this business, we’re still surprised when asked, “How do you manage to continue to publish a newspaper without selling it on a subscription basis?” The answer is simple. Fact is, most of us are accustomed to the traditional daily newspaper that we pay to receive. Lansing Community Newspapers exists on an entirely different – although not uncommon – business model. We distribute this newspaper to nearly every home in this area at no charge. We subsist almost exclusively on revenue generated through advertising sales. Our broad delivery allows

us to reach a larger audience than subscription newspapers. And our news is distinctly local; in fact, the majority of the news in this newspaper is submitted by readers like you. Simply put, lots of folks read the paper because it is relevant to their lives. It’s been a successful business model, and it makes this newspaper and its 11 sister newspapers in the Lansing area a good example of how to operate free weekly newspapers.

That doesn’t change the fact that publishing a newspaper today costs more than ever. Our two largest expenses are printing and distribution. As we have in the past, we are promoting our voluntary pay program. This column is an effort to explain what this program is, and isn’t. The voluntary pay program allows readers to make a contribution of $13 for 26 weeks or $26 for 52 weeks, and if you choose, tip your carriert. The amount equates to 50 cents per issue. An envelope explaining the program is inserted in this issue. We won’t gloss over two key issues: • Yes, the money raised through the program makes

a difference, assists us in keeping advertising costs lower and makes it easier to continue to operate the paper at an acceptable profit. • This program is voluntary. If you enjoy the newspaper, and if you experience good, consistent delivery of the newspaper, we hope you participate. However, if you have delivery problems, or for any other reason are unhappy with the newspaper, we ask you to do two things. First, don’t participate in the program. Second, call us and give us a chance to solve your delivery problem or gain an understanding of what kind of local information would interest you Finally, understand that delivery of this newspaper to

DELTA TWP. - Delta Presbyterian Church is the temporary site for the Transitions Grand Ledge Satellite program, until its new permanent location on Bridge Street in Grand Ledge is ready for occupancy. The day program, which currently has 22 participants, is geared for people with disabilities 18 and older who have completed high school. Each day they gather at 8 a.m. in what site manager Dorothy Archambeau calls a “respectful atmosphere where they have the opportunity to build relationships and make choices about their daily activities.” “We are so grateful for the use of Delta Presbyterian Church while waiting for our new location to be ready for occupation, Archambeau said. The program is administered by two full-time and two part-time staff from the Clinton-Eaton-Ingham Community Mental Health

Authority who help participants learn daily living skills, such as how to order and pay for a meal at a restaurant.

The community forum audience at Waverly Middle School Feb. 10 listens to the details of a draft plan for the district that includes reconfiguring grade levels, instituting an all-day kindergarten and closing one building for next year. Plans for a year-round schedule have been scrapped and the Freshman Academy put on hold. L is middle school principal Mike Moreno.

these out. “Teachers at the high school are taking ownership of this,” Jones said. “We’re just driving the bus.” High school schedules are due to be done by the end of this school year, so there will not be another snafu like the one that occurred last September when schedules had to be redone after classes started. Jones admitted that the plan will take a great deal of work to implement, adding

that every contract needs to be looked at. Other items in the draft are: • Taking a look at special education K through 12 • Expanding freshman orientation next fall • Exploring “essentials” classes in the high school for struggling readers and • Reconfiguring credit recovery and math and reading strategy labs at the high school. Although attendance was sparse, parents at the meeting said they liked the

plan. “I’m really impressed that things are starting to come together, “ said Patti Peyton. “It’s reassuring as a parent.” School board member Mary Ann Martin was also pleased. “I’m really excited that we’re grappling with this now and coming up with a positive solution,” she said. The remaining community meetings will be: Feb. 17 at Colt, Feb 22 at Winans and Feb. 23 at Windemere View.

Lady Warriors take control in CAAC Red

By SCOTT YOSHONIS

syoshonis@lsj.com

DELTA TWP. -- Waverly put a starnglehold on the CAAC Red girls’ basketball championship after winning three games in the span of five days last week. After a 72-60 non-league win over Grand Ledge on Feb. 11, the Warriors defeated league foe Jackson Lumen Christi 45-38 in a rescheduled game on Feb. 12 and gutted out a huge 38-36 win over second-place St. Johns on Feb. 15. The win over St. Johns was virtually a league-championship game, as the Redwings (13-4, 7-2) would have climbed into a first-place tie with Waverly in the league standings had they prevailed. Instead, Waverly improved to 15-2 overall, 9-0 in CAAC Red play, and took a twogame lead over the secondplace Redwings with three league games left. Although his team would have to lose two of its last three games to even share

the title, Warrior coach Erik Kutas says that there is more work to do before the crown is truly won. “It’s probably our biggest win of the season to date,” Kutas said. “It puts us in a really good position to win the conference, but we have three games to go, and we have to focus on Jackson Northwest, which is the next step in that process.” Waverly would clinch at least a share of the title with a win over the Mounties on Feb. 18, after this paper went to press. Noelle Miles hit two 3-pointers and two key free throws in the fourth quarter for the Warriors, in a game that was still in doubt until the very end. Jordyn Nurenberg led all scorers with 18 points for the Redwings, who led for most of the game before letting a nine-point, second half advantage slip away. Nurenburg scored the last two points of the second quarter and six more in the first half of the third, includ-

ing two free throws that gave St. Johns a 28-19 lead with 4:31 left in the quarter. But two fouls late in the third, her third and fourth, put Nurenberg on the bench and helped Waverly climb back into the game by holding the Redwings without a field goal for a stretch of over 12 minutes. “We started out the second half really well,” St. Johns coach Mark Lasceski said. “We went on a nice run, we hung with them, we just struggled to score late. That fourth foul really hurt us, but the kids battled. We had a chance to win.” Miles cut a six-point St. Johns lead in half with her first three with five minutes left in the fourth, and gave her team their first lead of the half with her second 1:18 later, 35-34. She then converted both ends of a 1-and-1 to stretch the lead to three, scoring all eight of her points in the span of less than three minutes. Nurenberg broke the Redwings’ field-goal drought with a layup that cut the lead to one point, 37-36 with 1:06 left in the contest, but those would be the last points St. Johns could muster. Waverly kept things interesting with a miss of the fron end of a 1-and-1 opportunity with 56.7 seconds left, and a mysterious traveling call on Victoria Milton with 21.5 seconds on the clock. Milton came down with a huge rebound, and went to the floor after what looked like a purposeful foul. The referee hesitated, and then ruled that Milton had traveled, giving St. Johns the ball back at Waverly’s end of the floor, trailing by just a single point. Nurenberg had a contested shot with about five seconds left, but it rimmed out, and the crucial rebound and late free throw by Waverly’s Carli Reid made the final

Sylvia Maxwell led the Warriors with 11 points and Carole Harris added 10 points and 12 rebounds in the game. Alex Hallenbeck scored 12 points and pulled down 11 rebounds for St. Johns. “I’m pretty proud of the kids,” Kutas said. “We were down most of the game, but we made enough plays to win.” But, it wasn’t easy, and certainly not as easy as in the first meeting this year between the two teams back on Jan. 25, when the Warriors took a 17-point lead at halftime and cruised to a 55-43 win. “St. Johns did a really nice job disrupting our offensive

flow,” Kutas said. “I think this is the fewest points we’ve scored all year.” After the game at Northwest on Feb. 18, the Warriors will finish the regular season with two home games, hosting Jackson Lumen Christi on Tuesday, Feb. 25 and Sexton on Friday, Feb. 28. Looking ahead to the postseason, Waverly will begin play in their Class A district at Eastern with a firstround game against the host Quakers on Monday, Feb. 28. Barring a historic upset, the Warriors will play Okemos in the district semifinal on Wednesday, March 2 for the right to play either Everett, St. Johns or 8th-ranked East Lansing for the district title on Friday, March 4.

MIDDLEVILLE -Describing Waverly’s loss in last week’s wrestling team district semifinal at Eaton Rapids as “heartbreaking” was proven woefully inaccurate at the individual districts at Middleville Thornapple Kellogg on Feb. 12. The heart of the Warriors was obviously undamaged, as seven wrestlers qualified for the individual regionals just three days later, the most in program history, with two of them, Cameron

Maldonado at 125 lbs. and Aaron Mays at 160, winning the district championship of their weight classes. Eric Brooks (119) and Cage Griffin (130) finished second in their flights, Kyle Force (145) and Thomas Houston (152) placed third and Cody Daniels (130) qualified for the regionals by placing fourth. The performance was even more impressive in a field that included not only Eaton Rapids, who qualified four wrestlers for regionals, but the fourth-ranked team in the state in Division 2,

Lowell. Waverly head coach Jim York said that his team exceeded his expectations. “I told my assistant coach that if we got five through, that’s a good day,” York said. “We got seven, so that’s a really good day.” York said that his team used their previous disappointment in the team tournament as motivation in the individual districts. “I think they had a chip on their shoulder,” he said. “We had two pretty good practices after that, and the kids did a great job. They

had something to prove, that Waverly wrestling belongs with the Lowells and some of those other teams that have wrestling reputations.” The Warriors certainly got Lowell’s attention. Maldonado won his district title with a pin in 5:02 of Lowell’s Kalvin Meyer in the championship match, and Mays defeated two Lowell wrestlers on the way to his district title, including the 7th-ranked Jake Stehley by fall in 4:45 in the flight semifinal. Also, Force’s only loss

was to top-ranked Red Arrow Andrew Morse. “I like how we’re wrestling right now,” York said. “Even with the loss (at Eaton Rapids), I feel the kids are peaking right now. We beat some tough kids, I was very impressed with how they wrestled.” The seven Warriors competed in the individual regionals at Hamilton on Feb. 19, after this paper went to press. York went into the regionals with high hopes for sending several wrestlers to

the State Finals. Just as in the districts, the top four finishers in each weight class go on to compete at the finals at the Palace of Auburn Hills beginning on March 3. “We have a realistic chance with six of the seven,” he said. The regional is going to be a dogfight, but I tell the kids that the guy across from you puts on his singlet the same way you do, ties his shoes the same way. If we get three kids to the state meet, that’s not a bad day.”

IS NOT THE SAME AS HAVING MORE MONEY.

When it comes to the number of retirement accounts you have, the saying “more is better” is not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you’re properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees. Bringing your accounts to Edward Jones could help solve all that. Plus, one statement can make it easier to see if you’re moving toward your goals. *Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss.

Plan: Major roadwork to begin

Continued from page 1

work being done in its center. The rehab project will mean milling off the asphalt and repairing the concrete base, along with some drainage, curb and gutter work and filling in sidewalk gaps. When both projects are finished, there will be continuous sidewalks from Canal to Waverly on both sides of Saginaw as well as a sidewalk on the north side from Waverly to Rosemary. The cost of putting a sidewalk along what used to be the Waverly golf course on the south side was deemed prohibitive. Audience members raised questions about the impact of the projects on local businesses, routes for school busses and overflow traffic on adjacent streets. “Eaton County is going to have to do a better job maintaining signals (during the projects),” former township treasurer Phil Chisholm told the presenters.

Hearthstone Way resident Barb Rinckey said after the meeting she was worried about extra traffic on Willow because many drivers will choose that route over the detour to the south.

“In the long run, (though), it will be a benefit,” Rinckey said. “We have to put up with the inconvenience for the summer to benefit the next 20 years.” For more information, log
