Budget bad for Waverly By MARY JO WHITE

DELTA TWP. - The price tag for Waverly Community Schools, should Gov. Rick Snyder’s budget be approved, would be huge. The proposed $470 perpupil cut would amount to $1.4 million, based on this year’s blended student count of 2,987, according to assistant superintendent Jacklyn Blodgett. Another steam roller for school districts will be the increase in the amount the Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System determines is needed for retirees’ medical care. Unknown at this time, that figure could go from 20.66-percent of current employees’




DELTA TWP. - Waverly Middle School is a regular beehive of activity on Tuesdays and Thursdays after classes are over. Thanks in part to a new “activities bus” that takes them to stops near their homes at 4 p.m., students can hang out for what some call the “eighth hour” in a seven-hour school day. This is the time for some extra math, reading or science help or maybe a makeup test without students worrying about how they’re going to get home. If you had strolled through the building on Feb. 15, for instance, you would have met math teacher Jennifer Vance coaching students. You would also have seen a group of eighthgrade Peer Assistance Leaders (PALS), discussing anti-bullying ideas with their teacher, Sam Sicilia. Trained last year, these PALS meet once a month to discuss activities. On this particular day, the topics, gleaned from the seventh grade PALS discussion, included the middle school

salaries to over 24-percent, according to Blodgett, which would result in another $714,000 cost to Waverly. These two items together would amount to a $2.1 million cut for the district, a figure Blodgett said become known just this week. Superintendent Debra Jones said the recent district reconfiguration plan would not be affected by the huge proposed cuts, because the plan is “cost neutral.” This is not to say that programs themselves won’t be affected, though Jones says it’s too early to say exactly how. “We cannot maintain the current level of educational opportunities for our students with such a large loss of revenue,” she said.

Down the hall, Gary Wilson’s seventh-grade woodworking class was sawing, filing and sanding their homemade race cars. With only nine weeks allotted for Wilson’s class, it makes

sense to put in a little eighthhour elbow grease, especially if non-woodworking friends can hang out too. Chad Watts was getting some bandsaw assistance from Wilson while Kane Thompson , who said eighth-hour helps him get ahead on projects, waited

his turn. Dominique Damico, sitting on a tabletop with Alyssa Lopez, was sanding furiously. “I love woodworking,” Damico said. “I’m a crafty person.” See

Delta resident to celebrate 100

DELTA TWP. - On March 1, Gayle Kaufman, a resident of Delta Retirment Center, turns 100 years young. Gayle was born in Lansing, but when he was young his folks moved the family to a potato farm 12 miles west of Greenville. He said that everyone was poor back then, but they didn’t seem to know it. Life still was good. He recalls picking potatoes and earning 1 cent per bushel. He also recalls living next door to a family that had a daughter his age named Elizabeth (nicknamed Betty.) At the age of 10, Gayle had absolutely no use for her. In fact, they mutually didn’t like each other when they were kids. As a young adult he did all kinds of jobs. He worked at Federal Drop Forge when he was 17, and at 18 he was hired by a small grocery store which happened to be owned by his next door neighbors. Gayle and Betty were older now, and both worked in the store. By then tolerating each other wasn’t as much of a problem. When Gayle turned 19, his mother passed away.Betty’s family made him feel welcome at their home all the time. They were wonderful to him. He fell in love with Betty, and when he was 25 they were married. Once they were married, they bought a small convenience store out in the country area of Logan Street (now Martin Luther King Jr Blvd) and Price Road. They sold gas, ice for ice

Gayle Kaufman boxes, and food. Today this area is a residential area north of Lansing. While Betty was in charge of managing the store, Gayle did the store bookkeeping and worked at the GM plant making 75 to 105 millimeter shells for the war. Gayle and Betty had four children: three girls and their youngest was their son. They decided to sell the store after their second daughter was born because it was too much for Betty to handle with young children. After they sold the store, they were able to buy some land by a little lake that had a 100-year-old cabin on it. After many years, Gayle and Betty retired there. Betty and Gayle enjoyed over 60 years of marriage. Although Betty has passed away, he still enjoys his four children and their spouses, 12 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, and one greatgreat grandchild with two more on the way in the next month or so to make three.

Rick for 2011 but Delta had alSnyder’s proposed revenue ready had its portion cut in sharing budget cuts, ac2010. cording to township finance Constitutional revenue director Jeff Anderson. sharing payments, on the “Delta has already another hand, are predicted to


increase by about $25.5 million as the result of more sales tax revenue, according to the governor’s budget. If that happens, Delta’s share could go up, although it’s impossible to say how much. U.S. census data is likely to raise Delta’s share as well because the township has been gaining in popu-

lation, according to Anderson. The $1.898 million revenue sharing figure in the township’s 2011 budget, a slight increase over the previous year, is predicated on these kinds of growth. Another positive note is the $200 million the governor is proposing for a new “incentive-based” revenue sharing program for cit-

ies, villages and townships that adopt “best practices.” Although these practices won’t be spelled out until sometime next month, it’s likely that attempts at regionalism will be among them. Delta already is working with other jurisdictions, the most well known examples being sharing police protection with Eaton County

and, more recently, collaborating on assessments with Grand Ledge. The township has also saved money on equipment by teaming up with various other entities, including Delhi and Meridian Townships. “We’re doing as much as most or more,” Anderson said. “Hopefully, we’ll do even more in the future.”

This is Marie Papciak’s fourth year working with the students at Waverly East Intermediate School.

Performers last year at Waverly East Intermediate School’s Women in History Program: L to r: Mikayla Temple as Annie Oakley, Ayanna Muhammad as Sojourner Truth, retired Waverly librarian Marie Papciak as Mary Todd Lincoln, B’Elanna Dumont as Queen Elizabeth II, Larissa Swisk as Deborah Sampson. Dressed as the famous women they’re portraying, they shared interesting information about each. Deborah Sampson, for instance, fought in the Revolutionary War disguised as a man. said. “These girls have worked hard in their research, have met faithfully after school each week, and have volunteered to do this so that they can bring this information to their fellow

classmates. Women have always been a part of history but it’s time to bring them out of the side margins of the history books and show that women were and are a vital part of history.”

Waverly cheer programs stronger than ever DELTA TWP. - The Waverly cheer program has made its mark this past year in the competitive cheer world. Both the seventh and eighth grade team and the high school teams have stepped up their game this past season and it has shown in their performances (and on their score sheets). When Varsity head coach, Patti Glenn first started coaching at Waverly five years ago, Waverly cheer was not quite yet on the radar. Before the 2006-2007 school year, Waverly did not have a competitive team. In 2007, MHSAA made it mandatory for competitive teams to switch to MHSAA style if they chose to compete. It was at that time that Waverly decided to form a competitive team. “I knew we would struggle in the beginning because we didn’t have the caliber of program most of the successful schools had,” Glenn said. “But I wanted to make the switch to MHSAA then rather than waiting. I felt taking a couple of years off to work on skills would put us even further behind.” Upon getting a better understanding of the competitive cheerleading format, Glenn realized they needed to step up their game. “We were getting girls coming in as freshman who really had no experience cheering, stunting, or tumbling. We were starting completely from scratch, which is difficult when you’re already behind other schools.” Therefore, she started up a youth program four years ago that helped spark an interest amongst girls at a young age.

“The first year there was a youth program, we only had 20 girls try out,” she said. “This year, on the other hand, 72 girls participated in youth cheer. This is the first year that we have seen the real benefits of the youth program.” One of those benefits was shown through the seventh and eighth grade program. Two years ago Waverly Youth Cheer implemented the competitive cheer program for seventh and eighth grade girls. This past season, the team received their highest overall scores in school history. Overall they placed first at one of their meets and second at two others. The squad has been working diligently to improve its routines and incorporate new stunts, such as adding back walkovers, back hand springs, scorpions and twist downs into their rounds. For the Waverly JV team, this was undoubtedly a year of great progress for them. The JV team made huge strides in their season, placing first place at four of their meets, second at one, and third place at another. They broke the school record in all three rounds. Their highest score in Round one was a 194.2, Round 2 168.2, and Round 3 253.9. At their final meet of the season they went up against strong teams, such as Dewitt, Fowlerville, and Lakewood and still managed to come out on top. Overall they tied for first place with Jackson Northwest in their league. The JV team hopes to continue to see improvements in upcoming years and prepare them for the Varsity level.

As for the Varsity squad this year, they had one of their smallest teams, but also their most skilled team. “This year’s girls are exceptionally gifted as far as tumbling goes. Our expectations of the returnees and newcomers were to learn

more difficult skills and to be more competitive. One skill we really pushed for was a team back hand spring in the second round, which we have not executed before this season,” said Glenn. Othernoteworthyachievements from this squad in-

clude beating their school records for Round 2 three times, Round 3 four times and their overall score twice. They also consistently placed in the top half for Round three. Their top scores this year for Round 1 was 204.6, Round 2 196.891 and Round 3 283. Overall high score 681.991.Furthermore, they had the most running tumbling they have ever had before in Round 3. “So far we have increased our total score average by

almost 45 points from last year and 124 points since our first season 5 years ago,” said Glenn, which is a major feat. “I have the best group of girls that work hard and all get along. I couldn’t have asked for more.” “Many area coaches have come up to me and commented on the growth of our program,” Glenn states. The Waverly cheer program is certainly headed in the right direction. - Team submitted

environment. Principal Mike Moreno says he really appreciates the MSU students circulating through his building and sees the activities bus as a definite asset. Before the bus, there

were kids who could do things after school because they could walk home or have their parents pick them up. “It (the bus) extends the good things going on to all the students,” Moreno said.

Alyssa Schrubbe said the activities bus helps her out when her mom can’t pick her up. Meanwhile, the WMS String Boot Camp Club, under the direction of orchestra teacher Mi Hye Kang, was practicing in the music wing. Kang says the string players have been doing quite well in their competitions this year, probably thanks in part to the boot camp club. Across the hall, Jared Alexander was playing an original tune on his bells set for Andre Blair, a Waverly High School percussionist, who says he often gives lessons to younger players at the middle school.

Delta’s new East-West Connector

Youth Council writer

DELTA TWP. - With the completion of the first phase of the East West Connector, the residents of Delta Township have a new scenic pathway to enjoy during their walks, bike rides and runs. The new path links Creyts Road, Mall Drive South and Elmwood Road to the township’s Sharp Park , as well as to some nearby neighborhoods. Students from Great Lakes Christan College on West Willow are now able to travel safely without a car all the way to Saginaw Highway, thanks to the Connector and the new paths on Creyts. The Connector provides a very scenic commute through the back of Sharp Park, linking with Mall Drive South, some neighborhoods, and Creyts Road. This route was particularly beautiful during the fall when the trees that surround the trail pro-

• Is a 10-foot wide concrete path. • Covers about 1.41 miles between Creyts and Elmwood, with an 800-foot extension to Mall Drive South. • Will eventually have two adjacent picnic shelters, five benches, five trash bins, bicycle racks and an accessible fishing dock on the south side of Sharp Park’s pond. • Has access points at Creyts, Elmwood, Mall Drive South, the north end of Garfield Road and the south end of Alan Lane.

vided bountiful color and beauty for any person to enjoy. The new trail has received very positive feedback from new users and veterans who have used portions of it before it was paved. A Saturday afternoon recently brought many people out to use their new pathway, accessing it from a number of different spots. James and Cindy Long of Delta Township said they have used the pathway to walk to the Lansing Mall Cinema to catch a movie, one of

the new benefits of the Mall Drive South link. The Longs were users of the pathway when it was a smaller dirt trail and cited how it is used more now that it has been paved. Another user of the pathway, Linda, was taking a walk with her dogs on the trail. She spoke of how much she loved the work that had been done. “I like it a lot; they did a really nice job. Very nice,” she said. Linda also mentioned how easy it was to access the

pathway from her home nearby. She also has enjoyed spotting deer on the trail. The new East West Connector provides township residents and visitors with a convenient and scenic route not only to travel to desired destinations and to exercise, but also to glimpse the beautiful environment that is Delta Township. The township board and the Government Youth Council strongly encourage all residents to experience the wonders of the new pathway for themselves.

Delta theater group presents Agatha Christie play DELTA TWP. - Starlight Dinner Theatre, based in Delta Township, will be presenting the Agatha Christie mystery, “A Murder is Announced,” adapted by Leslie Darbon, on March 11, 12, 18 and 19. The novel from which play was adapted, features Miss Marple and is considered a crime novel classic. A strange notice appears in the morning paper of a perfectly ordinary small English village, Chipping Cleghorn: “A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 13th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m. Friends accept this, the only intimation.” A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare the owner of Little Paddocks, Letitia Blacklock, played by Susan Chmurynsky of Lansing. The announcement comes as a great surprise to Miss Blacklock She has no idea what the notice means; she didn’t place it and none of her companions knows more than she. Miss Blacklock decides to take it in her stride and prepares herself to have guests that evening. Naturally, the villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Miss Marple, played by Winifred Olds of Okemos, are intrigued and curious over the advertisement and several of them appear on the doorstep with awkward reasons but a definite interest. As the clock strikes 6:30, without warning, the lights go out… In typical Christie fashion, the show offers a myriad of intriguing characters: In charge of the investigation is Inspector Craddock, played by real life Grand Ledge police chief Martin Underhill, and his assistant Sgt Mellors, played by Jay Hansor.

Residents at Little Paddocks include Miss Blacklock’s worldly niece Julia Simmons (Katie Denyes of Delta Township); Julia’s sarcastic brother, Patrick (Joe Baumann of DeWitt); Miss Blacklock’s flighty friend, Dora Bunner (Janet Anderson); the explosive European maid, Mitzi (Veronica Diebold of Charlotte) and Phillipa Haymes (Sarah Sonnenberg) an elegant, well-spoken boarder. Nosy and curious neighbors, Mrs. Swettham (Cathy Hansel-Edgerton of Delta Township) and her son, Edmund (John Roche) round out the list of suspects. The show is directed by Guest Director, Lisa Sodman Elzinga and serving as the Assistant Director, is Jan Ross. “We’ve set the show in the 1930’s and have had a great time playing with the costumes, researching the props and the set is beautifully done in Victorian style by multi-award winner, Bill Woodland,” Sodman Elzinga said. “Winifred Olds is wonderfully cast as the inquisitive Miss Marple.” Reservation check-in is from 6-6:30 p.m. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Waverly East Middle School. Reservations are required if you choose to do both dinner and the show, and tickets must be pre-paid. Ticket prices include dinner and the show for $30, $25 for seniors (62+) and students 22 and under with a valid student I.D. Show only tickets are also available for $15, and can be purchased at the door. For more information or to make reservations, contact Starlight Dinner Theatre at (517) 243-6040 or e-mail You may also visit the website at
