Welcome, class of 2023 DELTA TWP. - It isn’t every day that you send the superintendent to the supermarket, but that’s what happened to Waverly’s Dr. Debra Jones Aug. 12 at the kindergarten picnic. Jones, it seems, did a juice run to help replenish the cold drinks in the icefilled kiddie pool on one of the hottest of recent days. Hot really was the name of the game. Food service director Linda Vainner brought 320 hot dogs for the picnic supper and grilled them with help from assistant superintendent Jacklin Blodgett and union president Dave Pike - all of them laboring over grills that couldn’t be moved out of the hot afternoon sun. After a day spent at football practice and sporting quite a sunburn, Pike assured those who asked that he had taken the advice he gives his team: stay well hydrated. His football players were doing their bit for the kindergartners, too, running games and enthusiastically joining in dances, including a lively Bunny Hop. School board vice president Britt Slocum and his

DELTA TWP . - The Response to Intervention program and moving back to classroom teams are two strategies Waverly administrators say they will use to improve the status of Waverly Middle School, designated last week as one of the 92 “persistently lowest achieving” schools in the state. Vince Perkins, principal of the middle school for the last six years, said he was bewildered by the label. “We’ve met AYP (adequate yearly progress) for the last four years in a row,” Perkins said. “The dilemma is why are we on the list in the first place when there are schools around us that haven’t made AYP and aren’t on the list.” Waverly superintendent Dr. Debra Jones said that the middle school’s designation was “due to a new

way of measuring a school’s performance.” Schools were identified by a federally approved formula used for federal School Improvement Grants. It is based on student proficiency levels, academic improvement rates, whether a school made AYP and, in the case of high schools, whether their graduation rates were at least 60-percent. The main reason for the middle school’s current designation is the fact that overall proficiency in math and reading hasn’t improved over the last four years, according to Jan Ellis, spokesperson for the Michigan Department of Education. There has actually been a decline in skills among those previous proficient. “Waverly’s inclusion on the list is primarily due to the number of students losing ground in both reading and math when compared to the average of other schools in the state,” Ellis said. The Response to Intervention program, already in use in the district this past year, helps teachers identify struggling students and See Waverly/page 3

Family fun Windemere View kindergartner Taryn Donelson, 4, enjoyed the Waverly picnic Aug. 12 with her mom, Carla, (r) and her 20-year-old sister Michelle, who graduated from Waverly in 2007.

wife, Anne, pitched Destination Imagination to families and the National Honor Society members ran guessing games with yellow plastic duckies and suckers. There was a clown making balloon animals, free T-shirts in Waverly gold and a chance for youngsters to board a school bus or sit on a police motorcycle, the latter courtesy of Officer Jon VanCore. Kids could also get a head start on one of their most important relationships, the

one with their kindergarten teacher. Fiveyear-old Gerrell Gaillard, for instance, shyly responded to Johanna Germain from Winans Elementary as she bent down to greet him, while his mom, Evita, watched. Maybe the best part of the picnic, though, came from the Delta Township Fire Department - a run through a huge spray of cool water from one of its hoses. Hot dogs and juice, new friends and games. What better way to spend one of the golden August afternoons before school starts?

EATRAN at present level doesn’t meet all needs The Board of Commissioners has approved asking the voters to reconsider the approval of the millage to expand services of the Eaton County Transportation Authority (EATRAN). This action is not taken lightly. The Board believes it is appropriate to make this request for reconsideration due to the significant unmet needs that exist in the current system. EATRAN is celebrating its 30th year of operation in Guest 2010. In 1980 the populacolumn tion of Eaton County was 88,337. By Joe The latest available figBrehler ures are from 2009, where the population has grown to 106,077. In that period of time Delta Township, Dimondale, Grand Ledge, Potterville and the Eaton Rapids area have seen significant increases in population. Walton and Windsor Townships have seen increases of 20 to 25 percent. EATRAN has never levied more than its present millage rate since the millage was established 30

years ago. The requested millage of 0.75 of a mill would not take effect until 2012. It represents an increase of $50 per year for the owner of a home with Taxable Value (TV) of $100,000, or about $4 per month. Historically, despite increased demand EATRAN’s response to increasing costs has been to significantly reduce the services which it has offered. Continuing EATRAN at its present level, does not adequately meet the needs of the people it serves today. Those needs have been identified as a combination of expanded Dial-A-Ride throughout the County with increased hours of operation daily service and fixed routes where needed. The Dial-A-Ride services will be more convenient and available. The fixed routes will link communities with the existing regional system. The expansion would connect Charlotte, Grand Ledge, Dimondale and Eaton Rapids to that system and provide additional service within the Delta Township commercial corridor. This plan incorporates the needs and provides the services for all the people in Eaton County who rely on public transportation. In today’s economy the need for public transportation services is a key component to the attraction of business

investment within the community. Businesses look at the quality of life, the schools, infrastructure, parks and availability of public transportation in making those decisions. Businesses rely on public transportation both for customers and clients to reach them and their employees to have a reliable resource for commuting to their place of employment. Public transportation is a community embracing and recognizing the dignity of all its citizens. It is for the elderly person who can no longer drive and the handicapped and disabled. It is for the student attending classes at LCC West and the worker with a full time job that cannot afford a car. Public transportation allows them and many more the mobility to take care of their needs and the freedom to go where they want. It provides them a dignified way to live their lives like anyone else. It is for these reasons that I ask you to reconsider and approve the EATRAN millage request on November 2nd as an investment in EATRAN but more importantly as an investment in Eaton County’s future. Joe Brehler is chairman of the Eaton County Board of Commissioners

Great Lakes Christian students help out community

Delta-Waverly Community News

DELTA TWP. - The college campuses are once again teaming with eager students ready to start up their education for another year. It’s no different at Great Lakes Christian College in Delta Township as the freshmen come to town for orientation getting ready for classes to start on Monday, Aug. 23. Great Lakes places great priority on what happens in and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged to not only serve in the church but also in the world. Kris Bargen, Director of Student Life, put this into practice by organizing a work day to clean up the road sides near Mt. Hope and Canal. 50 students from GLCC spent two hours picking up trash as a service project in conjunction with Orientation week. Bargen says,


‘I realize that I’m called to be a servant like Christ and this was a practical way to do it.’ – GLCC student Matt Barnum “We love being in Delta Township and it’s our opportunity to make our neighborhood a better looking place and to give back.” Bargen said. Matt Barnum from Mt. Pleasant, in the midst of great fun, recognized the significance of the event. “I realize that I’m called to be a servant like Christ and this was a practical way to do it.” Tori Burr from Muskegon appreciated the activity because of the opportunity to bond with her fellow classmates.

Great Lakes Christian College has offered a quality Christian education in Delta Township at the corner of Creyts Road and Willow Highway since 1972. This four-year accredited college, founded in 1949, encourages their students to put their faith into action and to grow intellectually, spiritually and personally. Every year students find employment and recreation in Delta Township offering value to the community we live in. - Great Lakes Christian College

Defeated EATRAN proposal coming back in November By ALAN MILLER

CHARLOTTE — Eaton County voters will be asked in November for a tax increase to fund EATRAN. Two weeks and one day after voters turned down a tax increase request for the Eaton County Transportation Authority, the county Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to ask voters to consider the identical request in November. The vote took place Wednesday, Aug. 18, before a standing room only audience, with more than 70 people, some of them lining the walls, in contrast to the dozen or so attendees at typical county commission meetings. Before taking up the resolution, board members listened for nearly an hour as 25 speakers, nearly evenly divided by pro and con, spoke on the issue. Some of the presentations were emotional, as several people with disabilities spoke about how EATRAN allowed them to hold employment. Others spoke of EATRAN’s apparent inefficiency, as only approximately

I love New Covenant Christian School for many reasons. Starting with the classes, you get a lot of attention and the teachers are always willing to explain a subject in a different way if you don’t understand. In almost all classes, we have a fair amount of projects or activities to make school fun, but the teachers find a way to challenge us. My favorite day is Wednesday. Every Wednesday we have chapel for our first hour. I love seeing the school gather to worship the Lord. Once a month we have a “student of the month” award so the whole school gets a chance to celebrate the student who received the award. Middle and High School retreats are great ways to spend time with God. High School students retreat to “up north”. The seniors plan, put together, and present everything. For the Middle School retreat, it’s similar, but plan for one day. This year, we went to a small church building, had praise and worship, then the seniors gave a talk and we had lunch. They took us to Zap Zone, which was super fun! New Covenant School is amazing and I absolutely love it. I’ve been here for three years and have already learned a lot, made new friends, and gotten closer to the Lord. Gabriela Grant, 7th Grade LJ-0100030727

EATRAN: Back on ballot in Nov. Continued from page 16

with a market value of $150,000 and a taxable value of $75,000 would pay $18.52 for EATRAN services in 2011. If the ballot question is approved, that would increase to $56.25 in 2012. The EATRAN board plans to use the additional tax revenue to add fixed route service and evening and weekend service, as well as working with the larger Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) on regional service. Before the vote was taken, several board members spoke against the ‘all or nothing’ approach of combining the levy for EATRAN’s continuation with the additional taxes for enhancement, and suggested a split vote. However, when Commissioner John Forell proposed to split the single ballot issue into two questions, his motion died for lack of a second. Ultimately, the board voted 11 to 3 to certify the ballot question in

the identical form as the defeated measure. Voting against the measure was Michael Hosey, D-Sunfield, Blake Mulder, R-Oneida Twp., and John Forell, R-Charlotte. Darrell Baker, R-Charlotte, was absent. In the event the 0.75 mill enhancement fails again, the county will face a choice of holding a special election during 2011 or else allowing EATRAN’s entire millage to expire.

Campaign planned The measure on the Aug. 3 ballot was defeated by more than 2,000 votes (45 percent to 55 percent) when approximately one fourth of registered voters turned out. Commissioners who supported the plan spoke of the need for educational steps to counter an organized, but anonymous, antiEATRAN campaign which began during the months leading up to the August vote.

Republicans set state convention for Aug. 28 The Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing will host the 2010 Michigan Republican Party State Convention on Sat., Aug. 28. Doors open at 7 a.m. for Republican precinct delegates, alternates and their guests. Optional district caucus meetings will begin at 8: a.m. and the convention general session at 10 a.m. The state convention follows county conventions held on Aug. 12, where precinct delegates and alternates were elected to help select their party’s nominees for lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, the Mich-

igan Supreme Court and the boards of state universities. When voters went to the polls on Aug. 3, they selected candidates for governor, Congress and other state and local positions. Near the bottom of the ballot, voters were asked to fill positions about which most know relatively little: precinct delegate. The duties of precinct delegate are not widely understood, according to Dr. Tim Tarry, chairman of the Eaton County Republican Party. “But precinct delegates are important,” he said. “They’re the link between grass roots and party officials.” Tarry himself suc-

cessfully ran for delegate in Delta Township precinct 41. The primary function of delegates is to participate in the party convention at the county level, and if selected at the county convention, at the statewide level. In Michigan, they’re elected to two-year terms in August of every even-numbered year. “The number of precinct delegates is up substantially,” said Barbara Rogers, who chaired the Aug. 12, 2010 Eaton County Republican Convention and serves as vice chair of the county party. In the 2008 Republican primary, 69 delegates were elected.

In 2010, the party’s precinct delegate recruitment campaign netted an increase of nearly 60 percent, with 107 delegates elected by voters and an additional three seated at the county convention. “Hopefully, the large number of candidates means more people are interested in being active in our party,” added Rogers. A complete listing of delegates elected to the county convention is available on the Eaton County Clerk’s webpage.

Hundreds attend services for Grand Ledge soldier By ALAN MILLER

GRAND LEDGE - Brad Rappuhn was exceptional even from a young age. A former boss, Keith Mulder, who operates the A&W Restaurant in Grand Ledge said Rappuhn began working at the restaurant at the age of 15, following his graduation from the eighth grade. Normally, Mulder said, he does not hire employees that young, but, “his older brother worked for us and talked us into hiring him.” Mulder described him as a very motivated young man. “He started in the dish room, and about three days after he started he was ready to run the place,” Mulder said. He worked at the A&W through high school, and Mulder described him as a “go to” guy. “You wish you had 50 more guys like this. He will be thoroughly missed by everyone who worked with him.” Spc. Bradley Rappuhn was killed in Afghanistan Aug. 8 while serving as an Army Ranger. He was 24. His funeral was held Thursday at Grand Ledge High School, where he graduated in 2004. About 470 mourners filled the high school auditorium Thursday. Fellow soldiers told stories of Rappuhn’s kindness, fortitude and honor. “Bradley’s service and life embodied the Ranger creed,” said Lt. Col. Mark O’Donnell, Rappuhn’s battalion commander for the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. “Never shall I fail my comrades,” O’Donnell said citing the creed. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm ordered U.S. flags lowered statewide in honor of Rappuhn. A motorcade of nearly 200 vehicles escortied Rappuhn’s body to his final resting place at Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta. Rappuhn has been given a hero’s welcome since his body was returned to Grand Ledge on Monday, Aug. 16 when the streets were lined with friends, family and strangers alike, waving flags and issuing salutes as the casket passed by. For about an hour on Monday morning, Aug. 16, hun-

Soldier: Bradley Rappuhn welcomed home as hero Continued from page 20

Grand Ledge Police Chief Martin Underhill, who learned of the Monday assembly less than 12 hours before the event. “It says we are a very tight, very close knit community, and probably care about each other more than any of us even know,” said Mulder, who is also Grand Ledge Mayor pro tem. Rappuhn enlisted in the Army in January, 2009. Following basic training and assessment and selection, Rappuhn was assigned to Company B, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, based at Fort Benning, Ga., where he served as an anti-armor specialist. He was on his first deployment to Afghanistan, according to the 75th Ranger Regiment Public Affairs Office. He was seriously wounded by an enemy improvised explosive device during a combat operation in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. Rappuhn was treated immediately by unit medical personnel and quickly evacuated to the nearest treatment facility where he died of his wounds. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal and Purple Heart. “The entire country has suffered a loss,” said Mulder. “We have to be thankful for people like that.” For complete coverage on the return of fallen soldier Bradley Rappuhn go to Christine Rook and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
