ERHS students celebrate Earth Day Mary Jo White mjwhite@lsj.com

E

aton Rapids High School’s third annual Earth Day event April 29 was bigger and better than ever. High school chemistry teacher Jennifer Grivins, who organized the activities with Interact Club moderator Stacey Surato, said she believed about 930 students from kindergarten through sixth grade visited during the day, with about 300 high school students acting as hosts. There was a big piece of good news, too — that the district’s wind turbine is one step closer to being planted next to the high school, thanks to a $10,000 donation from the estate of Jayne Nikolic. She and her late husband Milor were local residents concerned with the environment who also wanted to support

door performance of Dr. Suess’ “The Lorax “ by high school actors. They could also pet a llama, hold a chicken or get an eyeful of what has to be one of the largest bunnies anywhere: Davey Griffith’s Flemish Giant rabbit. The equestrian team was there with their horses, too, explaining how riding strengthens leg and Hard work core muscles and improves balance. Some kids spent a good It was really a chance chunk of Earth Day getting for the scientifically the spot ready for the inclined to shine. Lots of turbine.

Grivins said it’s very likely that money will be supplemented by a $10,000 grant from the non-profit Energy Works next fall. “It’s something to celebrate, both Earth Day and the turbine,” said Adrian Geiger, whose wind energy project was one of the exhibits dotting the field next to the high school.

Superintendent Bill DeFrance, who spent part of the day helping serve lunch, said it’s fun to see students in action outside of class. He’s especially

glad to see how “gentle and nurturing” the high school students are with the younger kids. “I really feel proud to be a part of this,” he said. Grivins returned the

compliment. “This districtwide activity wouldn’t have happened without all the other teachers pitching in, plus the support of the administration,” she said. “That’s what made it work.”

City hunts for grant to fix bridge to GAR Island Rachel Greco rgreco@lsj.com

EATON RAPIDS — City officials are on the hunt for grant funding that may help replace or recondition the east foot bridge to GAR Island. The work could cost between $425,000 and $554,000, according to the Eaton Rapids’ Department of Public Works Director Scott Poyer. The bridge was installed in the early

1960s after a tree fell on and damaged the original bridge, built in 1908. Poyer said the 120-foot long, six-foot wide bridge has only seen minor paint work since then. It connects the east side of the island to the city’s downtown area. Now the structure’s concrete near the hand rails is detaching, said Poyer. “Something has to be done with this in the next several years or we’ll have to close it because it won’t be safe to use.”

Poyer said he would like to see work done on the bridge within the next five years. The city’s DDA will likely pay for a portion of the work, according to Poyer, but grant funding is hopefully available to fund most of the work. “I believe there is,” he explained. “It’s just a question of finding it and hitting the cycle at the right time to apply for it.” City officials are looking for grant funding for other efforts concerning the his-

toric island as well. About two-thirds of the concrete wall that surrounds the land needs restoring. The cost of that work is estimated at over $1 million. Poyer said the work on its east bridge is seen as one portion of a broader goal. “This is a big project that we can break down into smaller pieces,” he said. “We have a Master Plan that includes doing the wall, the east bridge and some repairs on the west bridge.”

Is arthritis keeping you from living the life you want? Then take charge with moderate physical activity. Sure, it’s not easy, but studies show that getting your heart rate up and keeping it up, at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, helps reduce the pain and stiffness from arthritis. It also improves your mood. But it’s more than just staying busy, so pick an activity like walking, biking, or swimming — whatever works for you — and you’ll notice a difference in just 4 to 6 weeks. Whether you try 30 minutes a day at one time, or 10 minutes at a time, 3 times a day, it all adds up to feeling better.
