Saginaw businesses struggle with construction headaches



he Saginaw Hwy. road construction is definitely taking a toll on local businesses, particularly restaurants. Dimitri’s trade is down about 40-percent, for instance, despite the great dinners being created by new chef Tony Rule. It may be that many downtown Dimitri’s regulars don’t even know there’s a dinner menu. served from 4 -8 p.m, except for Sundays. There is, it’s just hard to get to. Rule, a 29-year-old former sous chef at Bravo’s who has also worked at Mitchell’s Fish




Market, is the kind of guy who calls cooking his “passion,” would like to grow his own herbs and makes all his sauces from scratch. “My mom (who’s also a master gardener) taught me 90-percent of what I know,” Rule said recently while mixing homemade marinara sauce, Spanish capers and kalamata olives for that evening’s dinner special, pasta puttanesca. Other entrees include Greek style chicken breast, dill seared tilapia, seared beef tips and roast pork with wild rice. The pork has a delicious peach-based sauce dreamed up by Dimitri. “It’s something you

The Embassy Grill construction sign sits in a corner. It’s not practical to pay for a permit when there’s no good place to put it, given the lack of east-bound traffic, according to owner Rick Badawi. MARY JO WHITE/LCN

MARY JO WHITE/LCN can’t get anywhere else,” he said. “It’s unique.” On a recent evening Delta Township residents Bill and Alice Piggott and Bill and Debbie Horne were just about the only early diners. Was the food worth the hassle of getting to it? Definitely, with “tasty” being the operative word here. Owner Stamati Stathopoulos says he can’t understand why construction can’t go

faster, maybe with night crews. Some days there are no workers around at all. “It’s a long time for us to suffer here,” he said. Across the street and down the road, the Embassy Grill is also having a hard time, with the lunch crowd down 70-percent, according to owner Rick Badawi. His stituation may be even more difficult than Stathopoulous’ because there is no east bound

traffic at all and the Embassy is basically invisible in its tucked away location. “It’s huge,” Badawi said of his loss. “It’s too big a section (of Saginaw) to close at once.” At least one customer has needed a tow truck after driving over the curb into what looked like a connected parking lot at the bank next door. A sign advertising road construction specials sits unused because it’s not worth the permit fee when there’s no logical place to put it. There’s also no signage on Creyts to direct customers around the back of the building. Faithful customers like Maria Bui find a way,

though. Bui, who works further west on Saginaw has figured out a five-street route that includes Canal, Willow, Creyts and Frank-n-Dot Court to get to the Embassy’s Lebanese food - that’s how much she likes it. Badawi says he’s offering live music some nights (check out his Facebook site), as well as Friday specials. And many people don’t know there’s a full bar, as well as a menu that combines Middle Eastern and Italian food. Other businesses have faced less of a slump.

has been helped by “groupons,” something he’d already decided to do before the construction started. (A groupon is an on-line discounted deal.

Business has been down since the Saginaw Road construction started. MARY JO WHITE/LCN Ward said business is down about 25-percent and she, too, is considering the groupon idea. Medawar Jewelers still has its regular customers, but Mother’s Day this year wasn’t what it was last year, according to salesperson Allison Fraser. “It’s slowed,” she said, adding that she sometimes gets calls from customers asking her to route them to the store. Although township community

development director Mark Graham sympathizes with business owners, he has a different perspective on the construction. “We were fortunate that MDOT received $5 million in federal AARA funds,” he said, adding that new jobs have been created. Also, the Saginaw work takes time because it is so extensive. The road base is being repaired and curb, drain and gutter work completed.

The award was to be presented during LCC’s Commencement on Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m., Jack Breslin Student Events Center at Michigan State University. He was also to be honored at a special Calvin Jones reception in late June. The Distinguished Alumni Award was established to honor outstanding alumnus who have achieved a high level of professional accomplishment and have made significant personal contributions through their involvement in community service. Jones, a native of Lansing, is also a graduate of Michigan State University’s Political Leadership Program and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce Leadership Michigan program. During more than three decades with the Board of Water & Light Jones has held a variety of positions from ranging from General Maintenance Laborer to General Supervisor to Government Relations Manager where he

Dems and Friends summarize forum -13 percent. Michigan ranks 48th in the nation in the average per capita number of state and local government workers. “Plain and simple, we got the facts. We learned there are better ways to balance the budget than to increases taxes on seniors, the middle class and working families to fund more corporate welfare,” said Christine Walker, chair of Eaton County Dems and Friends. “Instead of taking money from the school aid fund to pay for another corporate tax giveaway, we can increase education funding and still balance the state’s budget.” Kay Randolph-Back, Eaton County Dems and Friends Issues Committee Chair said, “Citizens do not agree with cutting education, EITC credits and raising taxes on middle class families and seniors, to pay for a $1.6 billion tax cut for Michigan businesses. This forum demonstrated that there are better solutions available to solve our budget problems and meet the needs of Michigan’s families.” The Eaton County Dems & Friends Association is dedicated to informing voters on public policy issues. - Submitted by Eaton County Dems and Friends

EATON CO. - The Eaton County Dems and Friends held a standing room only public forum on Tuesday, May 10 in Delta Township about the state budget. The forum, “Fair Taxation and Fair Payment for Public Service: Getting the Facts in the State Budget Debate” was led by former legislators, Nick Ciaramitaro and Lynn Jondahl. Ciaramitaro is also the present AFSCME Council 25, Legislative Rep, and Jondahl is the retired Director of the Michigan Prospect for Renewed Citizenship, an organization working to connect citizens with governance. Ciaramitaro said that the state has enough money in the school-aid fund to increase the state’s payment per child to school districts by $200, while the Governor and the legislature propose cuts that begin at $470 per child. Jondahl’s presentation showed that Michigan actually collects over $8 billion in taxes less than the state Constitution allows. Michigan is the only state in the nation in which general fund revenue declined between 2000 and 2009, and that decline was 25 percent. Michigan ranks 50th among the states in expenditure growth from 2001 to 2009, and that growth was negative,

‘Tis the season for coughing, blowing, wheezin’, an’ sneezin’. Or is it?

Why is that? What is it that makes one child allergic and another not? After all, we all live on the same planet! The difference is most often seen in how one child’s body is able to adapt, and another not. Very simply put, an allergy is the inability of your child’s body to handle something which is in their immediate environment: Pollen from trees, grasses, flowers, etc. (There are also allergies to drugs, harsh detergents, and other agents. These allergies are seen as a protective reaction and are not the type I am discussing today). In other words, your child seems to be very

Thousands of children (and their parents) in our community seem to be affected by this allergy thing. For those of you who have not been, you are looked upon with envy at this time of year. Millions of hard earned dollars are spent on over-thecounter drugs, weekly shots, and physician visits. Then there is time-off from school (or work) and the effect of little Miss Sneezy on the family. The toll from allergies is immense.

Many of you had the pleasure of working with Chantelle Sheilds while she was at Waverly from 2003-2007. If you weren’t lucky enough to know her; let me tell you a little about this special young lady. Chantelle was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer when she was 18 months old. They were able to save her life by doing some experimental chemo therapies. However, the chemo obviously damaged a lot of her developing organs. She was unable to attend school for a full day until she was here at the high school. She was a real trooper and had a super positive attitude about life. Unfortunately, Chantelle lost her battle and died of renal failure on Jan. 28 of this year. Her parents, relatives

and friends are organizing a scholarship in her name to be presented to a senior starting this June. Because of the late date they are trying to raise donations for this year with plans of doing a bowling fundraiser starting next year. Chantelle enjoyed bowling and bowled for Waverly. If you would be interested in making a donation, could you please make out a check ( any amount is appreciated ) to Chantelle E. Shields Memorial Scholarship Fund and either give it to me or put it in my mailbox. The money does not have to be received until the end of May, however, a dollar amount would be helpful, so they can determine the amount of the scholarship for this year. Donations can be made to: Business Office, Chantelle Shields Scholarship Fund, Waverly Community Schools, 515 Snow

Another key are pretty good, senior, outfielder so there’s a lot Carli Reid, broke her had early in of hope there. the season, and has also been lost They’ve come for the year. along, they pay As a result of attention, they’re losing his two best hitters, and learning.” a healthy dose of senior leadership, TERRY HADLEY Warrior head coach Warrior head coach Terry Hadley has had to go with a very inexperienced squad. “We’re pretty young, now,” Hadley said. “We have three freshmen and three sophomores starting, it’s not going the way I thought it would go.” That youth manifested itself against the Mounties, who scored three runs in the third inning on three errors and a walk in the first game, and put together a 10-run fourth inning in the second game. The good news, at least for the future, is that the Warriors hit the ball, which was also on display in the two games against Northwest. Freshman Courtney Young had four hits in seven trips in the doubleheader, including two doubles, leading an offense that had 13 hits in each of the two games. But the Mounties scored their 12 runs on just nine hits in the second game, a classic hallmark of a young team.

Strong hitting

“Our hitting has been pretty strong,” Hadley said. “We have four .400 hitters, but you can’t out-slug people when you’re walking them and hitting them and making errors. We just can’t afford to give away any hits or outs and put people on base. We have to outscore people.” Despite the long season, and the growing

The girls who are freshmen and sophomores are pretty good, so there’s a lot of hope there. They’ve come along, they pay attention, they’re learning.”

Coming up The Warriors will play three doubleheaders this week, weather permitting, beginning with the home finale against Eastern on Monday, May 23. Waverly will then wrap up their league schedule in the CAAC Red finale at Sexton on Wednesday, May 25 and then make the short trip to Everett on Thursday, May 26.

In many cases, there was agreement of 40-percent or more. Fortytwo-percent, for instance, felt filling the vacant stores on Saginaw Hwy. was the No. 1 economic development priority.

Timely Tips for Hiring Remodelers Red Flags For Identifying the Unprofessional Remodeler Doesn’t have a license or insurance. All remodelers should be able to demonstrate evidence of both. Doesn’t write contracts. Without a clear written plan, it’s difficult to know what work you are both agreeing to complete. Expectations should be agreed to in writing. Requires payment in full prior to starting the job. It’s reasonable for your contractor to ask for payment up front to purchase materials for your job. Shady contractors demand full payment and may leave with the money. Vastly underbids other contractors. If a bid is way lower than everyone else’s it may indicate inexperience or a method of cutting costs that severely affects quality. Cannot provide references. Professional remodelers will always be able to provide the names and phone numbers of past customers. How to Evaluate A Home Remodeler’s References


Before you sign a contract with a home remodeler, ask them to share with you the names and phone numbers of customers they have worked with in the past.

Would Mom benefit from Assisted Living? •Does Mom sit at home alone without a lot of interaction?

Every day is an opportunity to show arthritis who’s boss. Living with arthritis pain? Time to show it who’s boss. Studies show that moderate physical activity — the kind that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up like walking, biking, or swimming — can actually reduce pain and stiffness, and improve your mood. But it’s more than just keeping busy, you need to get up and get active at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day. You can even do it for 10 minutes, 3 times a day. In just 4 to 6 weeks you’ll notice a difference. Get physically active and show arthritis who’s in charge.

DELTA TWP. - A tripleshooting early Sunday, May 15, that left three people injured outside a reception hall where a private party took place was the second shooting this year at the venue. Delta Township Manager Richard Watkins said that it’s not yet clear if the township can take any action against Family Connections, which advertises itself as a place to host everything from graduation parties to weddings. “We are going to take a good look at it,”

Watkins said. A message left with a phone number associated with Family Connections was not returned. Two 21-year-old Lansing men and a 16-year-old from Lansing suffered injuries in Sunday’s incident, which officials said happened in the parking lot after a private party attended by about three dozen people. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, Eaton County Undersheriff Fred McPhail said. In March, a 19-year-old Lansing woman was shot in the hip in the same parking lot. In that incident, investigators found 32 shell cas-

been denied entrance to the party earlier. While deputies were investigating the report of shots fired, three gunshot victims arrived at area hospitals, seeking treatment, officials said. Investigators determined that all three had been shot in the parking lot outside Family Connections. McPhail described two of the three victims as uncooperative. The 21-year-old victims were shot in the back. The third victim, a 16-year-old boy, suffered a gunshot wound to his right

arm, officials said. Authorities did not release their names. Lt. Jeff Campbell, commander of the Delta Patrol substation, told the township board May 16 that dealing with the shootings is more difficult than dealing with the recent problems at Roxy’s Night Club. Roxy’s, now closed and with its liquor license in escrow, is a public venue. In contrast, the space at Family Connections is rented for private gatherings, so entrance can be denied even to the police unless they have a search warrant. Campbell also said after the meeting that police are seeing some of the same faces at Family Connections that they previously saw at Roxy’s. Mary Jo White contributed to this report
