Lootens Park neighbors speak up on sewer plant By MARY JO WHITE

DELTA TWP. - Neighbors in the vicinity of Lootens Park brought their concerns about a proposed new wastewater treatment plant on 10 acres of park property to the township board ‘It may be Monday, Aug. 2. Among them up to 10 were noise, odors, decreasyears before ing property valwe need the ues and whether the township capcity.’ had searched for other sites – Richard that would be Watkins, more appropriate. Delta Twp. Township manager parks and rec director Dick Benkert said that the criteria used for deciding on the site included proximity to the Grand River and being west of the I96/I69 freeway. He also explained that an addition to the existing plant that would entail increased regulation would cost $39 million, compared to $17 million for a new plant. Debbie Almasy told the board that the undeveloped Lootens acreage was part of the reason her family chose to live where they do.

71st race narrowed to two for Nov. By BARB MODRACK

Mary Jo White

Debbie Almasy, whose home is east of the land being proposed for a new Delta Township wastewater treatment plant, questions the board August 2 about why that particular site was chosen. “Why that corner right by my house?” Almasy asked. In addition, she said, more homes are expected to be built hear hers, saying land nearby has been plumbed for 10 single-family homes. Delta Township manager Richard Watkins said the wastewater plant

likely won’t become a reality anytime soon and the exact site on the Lootens property has not yet been decided. “It may be eight to 10 years before we need the capacity,” Watkins said, calling the current plan a “rough schematic layout.”

EATON CO. - It will be Deb Shaughnessy vs. Theresa Abed in November. A crowded field of candidates seeking the 71st District State Rep. seat now held by Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, was narrowed from nine to two in Tuesday’s primary election. Shaughnessy spent the months ahead of the election in a classic political stance: knocking on doors, some days 100 or more. When Tuesday, Aug. 3 rolled around, she knew she had done what she could. “I was at peace all day long,” she said. “I was not nervous whatsoever. I knew we ran a good campaign, but at some point you have to leave it up to the voters.” And the voters made their point loud and clear. Shaughnessy, the former mayor of Charlotte, took more than twice as many votes as her closest Republican rival, Cheryl Haddock. “It just proved that our voter contact made a

difference,” Shaughnessy said. Both wi ners, Republican Shaughnessy and Democrat Abed, finished decisively. Shaughnessy started out well ahead of the other Republicans as soon as returns began coming in and stayed that way until the end. Abed, an Eaton County Commissioner, trailed challenger Fred Fry through the early evening Tuesday but pulled ahead by about 400 votes when the Delta Township and Grand Ledge precincts were posted. Abed said she knew she was running a strong second until late in the evening Tuesday when she received a phone call from a member See 71st/page 5

of the media. “He asked how I was doing and I said I was excited and still hopeful,” Abed said. “Then he said he had someone there who wanted to talk to me and it was Fred conceding the race.” She said she was thrilled to get the nomination. “We had a very competitive race,” Fry said. “But I feel very good about Theresa’s candidacy, and I am going to do everything I can to support her.” The other Republican candidates were Laurie Raines and Britt Slocum. On the Democratic side, Abed and Fry were joined by Bob Robinson, with the third largest count, Justin Heany and Mark Eagle.

What now? As the candidates turn their attention to November, Shaughnessy said she will return to the campaign trail. “I will just go back to knocking on doors and talking with the voters about the issues,” she said. Like Shaughnessy, Abed spent her campaign efforts going door-to-door, making phone calls and talking to voters. “People have relayed to me that they are concerned about jobs, education, government reform, our seniors, and getting beyond the partisanship and political maneuvering that is keeping Michigan from moving forward,” Abed said. “These are the issues I will be focusing on.” Shaughnessy said the major issues in the race include jobs and ending partisanship. “They want politicians to be statesmen, working across party lines to solve the issues that matter the most to them,” Shaughnessy said.

Other races of interest: • A request for a millage increase for EATRAN services was defeated. • A millage renewal for the Grand Ledge Area District Library was approved. • Republican Jim Osieczonek will face incumbent Democrat Jeanne Pearl-Wright for a seat on the Eaton County Commission, District 5, in November. Osieczonek defeated William Perry on Tuesday. Pearl-Wright was unopposed in the primary. • Republican Ben Colestock will face Democrat Roger Harris in November in a race for a seat on the Eaton County Commission, District 15. • Thomas Byerley and Ryan Wilson were the top two vote getters in the race for the Eaton County Probate bench. Eliminated in the primary were Sheila McCoy, Allen Schlossberg and Denise M. Cole. • Republican Rick Jones will face Democrat Michelle R. DiSano in November for the 24th District State Senate seat. Jones defeated challenger Randy Brink in the primary. DiSano was unopposed in the primary. • Republican Tim Walberg will face incumbent Democrat Mark Schauer in November. Walberg defeated Marvin Carlson and Brian Rooney in the primary. Schauer was uncontested in the primary.

The first phase of development, which will require a special land use permit, will have 77 units, according to senior

township planner Gary Bozek. Future phases, which would require more zoning approvals, would bring the total number to 140. Bozek said the church has already applied for the special land use permit.

Although in the Delta Township sidewalk plan for 20 years, the section won’t see a sidewalk anytime soon because the right-of-way will be used for a traffic lane instead. according to Hugh Forster, who used to live in a home just south of the Eyde property. “I think the board has to go beyond diplomacy,” Forster said.

the relatively new sidewalk on Willow that doesn’t appear to meet the setback requirement. It does, though, because the bike lane is counted as part of the 10 feet. Williams says that, once the Creyts Road traffic lane is built, there will still be six feet of right-of-way in back of the curb, enough to build a five-foot sidewalk if it weren’t for the setback requirement. Ballou, though, maintains there will be only four feet, not six. “It’s like they’re being obstructionist,” township clerk Janice Vedder said of the road commission. “They for-


DELTA TWP. - That stretch of the west side of Creyts just south of Saginaw won’t see a sidewalk anytime soon, despite having been in the township sidewalk plan for almost 25 years. The reason is the fact that Mike Eyde, the owner of the 118-acre vacant parcel at the corner of Creyts and Saginaw, had refused to give an easement for a sidewalk unless the township would take responsibility for snow removal, something it does for no other property owner, according to township engineer Dennis Williams. Asked to comment on the situation, Eyde said it was “between the township and the county.” “I don’t know anything about a sidewalk problem,” he said. Instead of being used for a sidewalk, the right-ofway has been given to the Eaton County Road Commission for an acceleration/ deceleration lane of traffic that will serve whatever development will eventually occur on the property, according to township manager Richard Watkins. On July 19 the township board was figuring out other places to spend the Creyts Road sidewalk money, even though everyone agrees Creyts, with its 40 mph speed limit, is a true danger zone for pedestrians. Wheelchair users have been seen tooling in the roadway and poison ivy is thick in the area at its edge,

get that Delta Township isn’t rural like the rest of the county.” Township supervisor Ken Fletcher said after the meeting that the board has tried to work with the road commission, to no avail. “We’ve had multiple

meetings,” Fletcher said. “If they can’t build it 10 feet back, they won’t build it.” Ballou, though, says it’s a matter of the township and the property owner agreeing on how much money it would take to acquire “a thin strip” of right-of-way that would accommodate a sidewalk.

Bicyclist David Berlin, who lives in the nearby West Ledge subdivision and was once hit by a car, said he rides only the sidewalk but has seen people in wheelchairs in the roadway. “It would be nice to have a sidewalk so I could run up to Kroger’s more easily,” Berlin said.

The staff and students enjoyed exploring the equipment and learning how it works along with what role it plays in harvesting the crops. The students were surprised at the size of the tires as they could stand up in the rims and from the seat of the combine they could see the roof of the center. Clark Farms enjoyed nurturing the curiosity of potential future farmers.

News in brief Back to school help sought by SIREN EATON CO. - For the past several years, both the Eaton Clothing and Furniture Center in Charlotte and SIREN/Eaton Shelter have invited local donors to help get children from low-income families back to school with a smile. With help from individuals, churches, and businesses, especially Eaton Federal Savings Bank, children have been assisted with shoes, backpacks, socks, underwear, and personal care items. Due to their level of need, children from the shelter have also been “adopted” by donors willing to provide a new outfit on the first day of school. This year, more than ever, donations have not kept up with requests for assistance.

In order to stretch the resources, SIREN/Eaton Shelter and the Eaton Clothing Center are coordinating their efforts. Young shelter residents will receive their shoes, socks, underwear, and personal care items from the Eaton Clothing Center. Donors who “adopt” a SIREN resident will be asked to help with clothing. More backpacks and school supplies are also needed, especially for children whose families have left the shelter, but are struggling to get back on their feet. For information on how you can help this effort, please contact the Eaton Clothing Center at (517) 543-4334. To “adopt” a homeless child or provide a backpack, please contact Janet at SIREN/Eaton Shelter at (517) 543-0748.

It‘s almost time for the kids to go back to school, a time of year that can be tough on the family dog. After having friends to play with all summer long, he suddenly finds himself alone most of the day. This can cause a normally well-behaved pet to display undesirable behaviors, like chewing on furniture or barking excessively “Dogs need routine, so the change from summer to school-year schedule can be hard on them,” explains Nancy Semrau of Best Friends in Lansing. “Not only are the kids gone all day, but when they come home, they’re too busy with homework to spend time with the family pet.” To combat your canine’s back-to-school blues, Semrau suggests the following: Pump up the exercise. A well-exercised dog is a happy dog. Set aside 30 minutes each day for a long walk, active round of fetch, or romping with canine friends at the dog park. “Leaving your dog alone out in the yard does NOT count as exercise!” notes Semrau. Keep him busy. Give him a toy with kibble hidden inside that he must roll or move to retrieve the treats. Or stuff a kong with peanut butter and a treat, then put in the freezer; this frozen treat will keep him busy for a hour or longer. Take a training refresher. Dogs’ obedience skills can lapse during unstructured summer months. Now is the time to reintroduce basic training commands

or to work on a new trick. A group training class is a great way to do this, while providing socialization too. Just be sure to practice his new skills for a few minutes every day. Send him to camp. An alternative to lonely days at home is doggy day camp, where dogs play together in a safe, supervised environment. Attending just two or three days a week is enough to keep most dogs content. “It’s especially beneficial for young and high-energy dogs,” notes Semrau. For more information on canine behavior, visit Best Friends at 2920 Port Lansing Road (at Lansing Airport) or call Semrau at 517-327-1070.

Students live by the golden rule of “treating others the way they would want to be treated”

We are new to New Covenant as of this year, but already I see a spiritual growth in our daughter. I attribute this growth to the Christian values she is seeing displayed daily at her school. The students here do truly live by the golden rule of “treating others the way they would want to be treated”. The teachers are not just teaching Christian principles--they are living them out for the kids to see and learn by. God is not something that is just taught in Bible class. He is seen through the actions of the teachers and the students who are continuing to strive to be His hands and feet. This is done not only in the school but more importantly out in the community where it should be demonstrated… helping others to see Jesus through our children. I can’t think of a way of making a parent more proud. We are so grateful for the wonderful education and so much more that New Covenant Christian School provides for our daughter.
