Locals boast of Beatles Valhalla gets big DNRE grant


DIMONDALE — Nestled in a quiet subdivision off Billwood Highway is a house that contains the Holy Grail of Beatles memorabilia. Dimondale residents Victoria Spector-Walker and Jim Walker have amassed an enormous Beatles collection that occupies almost every nook and cranny in their home. They are so proud they say they want to open it up for public viewing by appointment. How did they come up with so much Fab Four artifacts? All you need is love. “We actually met online when I bought some Beatles items from him,” Spector-Walker said. “From there we kept talking and it eventually turned into marriage. And so Walker came all the way from Amsterdam a couple years ago and two collections became one. Walker said he has been trying to catalog the items on a daily basis, but isn’t done yet. “We don’t know how much the collection is worth yet,” Walker said. “But it is for sure worth more than our house.” The collection will be turning heads at the couple’s open house on Feb. 5. It is an invitation-only affair, and will included the Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce, which wants to list the collection as a re-

DELHI TWP. — A popular Holt park has been awarded a state grant that will help finish a makeover process that started years ago. Valhalla Park has had many changes in recent years, but this one will be one of the biggest, according to Mark Jenks, Delhi Township Director of Parks and Recreation. “We are so happy to get this grant,” Jenks said. “This will complete much-needed renovations to that park.” The MDNRE grant will help pay for the park’s new restroom pavilion facility. After several complaints about the restroom, which was built in 1974, a new one was slated once funding could be obtained. Last year, a woman told parks officials that the old restroom was so scary it made her daughter cry. “We new we had to do something,” Jenks said. The township’s new trail system now runs through the park, as well as new playground equipment. Jenks said the new restroom facility would be the icing on the cake. The Delhi Township Board of Trustees approved an early draft of construction work from Landscape Architects & Planners, Inc. in the amount of $49,200 for professional services for the Valhalla Park Restroom/Pavilion project at its Jan. 18 meet-

In April 2010 the Township applied for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant, but it was initially denied. After letters of support from Holt schools, county government and local service organizations, the grant was approved. The Trust Fund Grant in amounts to $283,100, which covers 75 percent of the estimated $377,400 project cost. The grant requires a 25% local match ($94,300) of which a portion of that amount can be through inkind services. After the grant funds become available the DNRE will prepare a Grant Agreement for board approval at a subsequent meeting. Jenks said construction could begin in June.

“It was in bad taste that the album art included Mark Chapman (the man who shot Lennon). “The value of all of these items continues to rise,” Walker said. “With some pop-culture memorabilia, the value can diminish over time but the Beatles have not.” He said the home tours will probably cost around $20 with no more than three people at a time. “I do have security to worry about,” Walker said. “Although we have a good system in place right now.”

Chimney fire causes $10k damage to home By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. — A chimney fire in Alaiedon Township caused $10,000 in damage to a home, according to fire department reports. Just after 11 p.m. on January 16, the Delhi Township Fire Department was dispatched to a chimney fire in their coverage area in Alaiedon Township, at 617 N. Cedar St. On arrival, only light smoke was visible inside the house with heavier smoke issuing from the chimney on of a one story ranch house. Firefighters entered the structure and went to work opening the walls around the fireplace to contain and extinguish the fire, reports say. Mutual aid was requested from the Mason Fire Department for an engine company, and Mason command on scene extended that request to include a tanker. Once the wall was opened up it was discovered there was no fire extension to other parts of

the house and the smoldering fire was quickly put out. Firefighters were on the scene approximately two hours. It was the biggest damage reported in a busy week. Delhi Township Fire Department had a total of 46 calls during the week of January 10, through January 16.

HOLT – Holt seniors Collin Mohr and Brendan Finnerty will follow the trend of recent Holt graduates that will go on to play soccer at the collegiate level. Mohr, who played both defense and midfield in high school, committed to the University of Detroit Mercy. He will join a program that finished 8-8-2 overall, including a 4-4 mark in the Horizon League. He earned a Division 1 all-state honorable mention this past season for the Rams. Mohr originally chose to attend Wisconsin-Green Bay, but changed his mind at the end to Detroit Mercy. “I just liked the environment there a little better, and I know that I should get an opportunity to play right away, which is something I want,” Mohr said. “Location also played a big role in my decision. I wanted to be closer to home.” When he gets some time away from the playing field, Mohr plans to head home and work with the Holt high school team next season. Mohr is projected to play defense in college,

Kevin W. Fowler/LSJ

Holt’s Collin Mohr will be playing for the University of Detroit-Mercy next season. most likely at the right-back position. “I’m looking forward to a new opportunity and to playing in a different environment,” Mohr said. “At Holt, I always knew where I was going to play, but now, I’m really looking forward to this challenge.” Mohr’s high school teammate, Finnerty, an all-area selection, will join a strong Division III Wheaton program that finished 11-7-3 and won its league this fall. He will join former Holt standout Kevin Skinker,

who is currently a freshman at Wheaton. “He was a great person to talk to about making my decision,” Finnerty said of Skinker. “He wasn’t pushy at all, but I could tell all along that he really wanted me to come and play there.” Finnerty’s decision came down to Wheaton and Calvin College, but he ultimately decided on Wheaton for a variety of reasons. “I was looking for a smaller Christian school that was good at soccer, but I went

with Wheaton because they have great academics and we should have a shot at winning a National Championship while I’m there,” Finnerty said. “Everyone there was very nice and easy to get along with. I felt like they really wanted me there.” Mohr and Finnerty will be the fifth and sixth player to commit to college programs in the past two years. “It’s good to see that Holt is starting to build up and become a power,” Finnerty said.

HOLT — Holt’s boy’s basketball team is a young group that will continue to improve as the season progresses. But with youth comes learning, and some potential losses along the way. The Rams youth and inexperience became inevitable this past week as they lost back-to-back games. Freshman Collin Jones scored a team-high 11 points and senior Tim Scott added 10 points, but Holt fell to Jackson 59-43 in a CAAC Blue matchup on Jan. 14 at Jackson High School. The loss marked the second league loss for the Rams this season. Holt was back in action on Tuesday, but the end result was similar to that of the Jackson game. Tim Scott led the way with 15 points and six rebounds, but the Rams fell behind early on and were not able to battle back as they lost 54-41 in a nonleague loss to Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills.
