School move irks area residents Village seeks

grant for island

Will Kangas

Residents living near Midway Elementary school came to a PTO meeting April 27 to learn about a new neighbor. Holt Public Schools officials plan to setup the new alternative education program in its own vacant building on Spahr Avenue — next door to the elementary school. “Some of us are pretty irate,” resident and parent Laura Davis said. “We are anticipating a town hall forum type of meeting and hope you are open to hearing us.” Davis wrote a letter asking for another forum and has started a page on a social media site. Residents and parents said they are concerned that the incoming alternative education students would walk through the neighborhood and by the school “dropping ‘F’ bombs and smoking.” “I didn’t even know about this until I heard about it from a neighbor,” resident Edward Ennen said. “We already have a problem with traffic congestion I don’t think anyone has taken that into consideration.” In February, the Holt Board of Education voted 4-3 in to dump its alternative education program, which is currently housed in a rented former bowling alley on Cedar Street. Despite an award-winning staff, “Holt Central High School” had a failing graduation rate, and adminisHOLT —

Superintendent Dr. Johnny Scott talks to residents and parents at Midway Elementary about the new alternative education school. WILL KANGAS tration proposed turning the school’s supervision to a private company to help the situation. Because the school was on a main street, the students were often very visible outside the school, one parent said, and she didn’t want that element to come into the neighborhood. “The issue is foot traffic,” PTO member Jenn Castillo said. “The CATA bus stop is by Quality Dairy, and they will be coming through.” Holt Public School Superintendent Johnny Scott said the Spahr Avenue building is owned by the schools, unlike the Cedar Street property, which was rented. “It is our property under our jurisdiction,” Scott said. “We will be look-

ing at all kinds of options, including fencing.”

Closed campus He also said the nature of the campus will be closed, meaning there will be no lunch breaks or time to loiter. A representative of the company, called Ombudsman, said at other schools the students get in and get out. “We have had very little problems with our Waverly facility,” Karen Potter said. “We have staff meet them outdoors.” Plans call for three separate sesSee SCHOOL, Page 6

DIMONDALE — A plan is underway to make an island in the Grand River a prominently featured park for the village . The five-acre island became accessible after the village bought it from the Lansing Board of Water and Light in 2004 along with a crumbling dam. The dam was removed two years later, and the island, which was overrun with vegetation, has new plans to be used heavily again for fishing and picnics like it was in the 1950s. An old mill remains on the island and will be featured along with the mill race. A temporary bridge currently allows access to the island, but the village has big plans to improve it and tie it in with its parks and recreation offerings, including nearby Lions Park. The Dimondale Village Council has applied for a Michigan Natual Resources Trust Fund Grant to help pay for renovations — estimated to cost $169,932.

Under terms of the grant the village would have to provide a 25 percent match, Dimondale Village President Denise Parisian said. “We are currently preparing for a fund-raising campaign,” Parisian said. “Regardless of whether we get the grant money, we are going to raise funds for the park.” The village isn’t expected to hear about the grant until the end of the year, she said. If the grant is approved, the village has until 2013 to use it, which would allow more time to plan construction and raise funds if needed. “The number one thing to do will be the new bridge,” she said. It will replace the bridge that crosses the mill run and will be 10-feet wide to provide access to everyone, she said. The historic mill will be featured along a wood chip path on the island in the future, she said. The bridge, along with paved parking, a canoe/ kayak dock launch, and fishing dock are in phase I.

HOLT — At a recent Relay For Life of Holt meeting, the question was asked “Why do you Relay?” Everyone has a reason as everyone has been touched in some way by cancer; maybe they’re a cancer survivor, maybe they’ve lost a family member to cancer, maybe they’re helping a loved one in their battle with the disease as a caregiver, maybe just because cancer has taken too many lives. For the next few weeks, I’ll be publishing the stories of why Relay For Life participants have gotten involved in this event. Some have been participants for years, some are new this year. Although their stories are different, what remains a constant is their passion for this event and their hope that one day the cure will be found for this disease. Mike Anderson, team captain for Team Christ United Methodist Church, is a new captain for a new team this year. This is his story: “Why do I relay? It could be that my father (who was the hardest worker I have ever known) died of cancer. Or that the love of my life, Gina, is a cancer survivor. Or maybe because of the countless other close friends and family that have been touched with this killer disease.

Mostly I walk because it’s what I can do. I am not a doctor or a researcher; just a man. It’s how I give back, maybe even pay it forward. I can raise money and I can walk and that is what I do. I feel it is my duty to my beloved brothers and sisters who have cancer, who died of cancer, and who have beat the odds and survived cancer. My mother and father raised me to give of myself where and when I can. My first Relay was in 2010 as a member of Carol’s Angels and I did not know what to expect. That Relay touched me deeply and I knew immediately I was doing the right thing. More than that, I realized then that I needed to do more and that is why this year my church, Christ United Methodist Church, has a new team for 2011 and I am the captain. Why do I Relay? because it’s what I can do, what I should do, and it’s the RIGHT thing to do. Please visit Relay For Life of Holt’s website at Come to Holt’s Relay, Friday, June 24 till Saturday June 25 from 1 p.m. until 1 p.m. You do not have to be a team member to participate; come and be inspired like Mike Anderson was.

Egg-cellent time

Administrators are looking to open the classrooms in early September. Scott told the residents the district may not have much of a choice simply because of its financial situation. He said using the new program and the district’s own building will bring yearly costs down from about $1 million dollars to $660,000. Scott pointed out proposed state cuts will cost an extra $6 million and will eat up Holt’s healthy fund balance in one year, if costsaving measures are not

Kiwanis BBQ coming

Holt Community News

HOLT — The Holt Kiwanis BBQ has an interesting background. In the early ‘50s, the Boy Scouts, under the leadership of George Knight and Ernest Hunt, were holding a chicken barbecue. The scouts found it necessary to give it up. Then Hunt got the Holt Kiwanis Club to continue the tradition, while both he and Knight continued their work with the scouts. Hunt was the charter president of the Holt Kiwanis in 1949, and passed away a few years ago. The Kiwanis developed equipment for its own open pit procedure, and used the Holt High School grounds for the event. Later, members put on the annual barbecue at the present Holt Presbyterian site.

Teen pleads guilty in Holt student is finalist high school crash case

Kevin Grasha

A 17-year-old Holt High School senior admitted in court April 27 he was intoxicated earlier this year when he crashed a speeding car into a tree, killing three of his passengers. At a hearing in Ingham County Circuit Court, Brett Johnson pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated causing the deaths of two fellow Holt seniors and a Holt graduate, officials said. A preliminary breath test at the scene put Johnson’s blood-alcohol content at 0.115 percent. He also had evidence of marijuana in his system, officials said. A blood test some time later at the hospital came back with a 0.10 reading, said Johnson’s attorney, Rick Hillman. Johnson, who still attends the school, faces up to 15 years in prison. Judge Paula Manderfield will sentence Johnson on June 8, about a week after his last day of classes. State sentencing guidelines put his minimum prison sentence between 29 and 57 months, officials said. Manderfield will set the minimum sentence, which determines when Johnson will be eligible for parole. Manderfield could choose to set the minimum outside the guideline range, but it could be appealed. Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III said he “would not appeal a depar-

ture in guidelines by the judge, either upward or downward.” Dunnings expects a difficult sentencing hearing. “Judge Manderfield is going to get a lot of information about Mr. Johnson and a lot of information about the kids who passed away,” Dunnings said. “I think it’s going to be a difficult decision.” The crash happened at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 30, when the 2003 Pontiac Bonneville Johnson was driving went off Hagadorn Road in Meridian Township and struck a tree. Johnson admitted during the plea hearing that he was driving faster than the speed limit. Killed in the crash were Holt High School senior Holly Bossenbery, 17, and Holt High School graduate Taylyr Cochran, 18. Anthony Harris, 17, a Holt senior, died three days later from his injuries. Family members of Cochran and Harris declined to comment about the plea. Bossenbery’s family could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Hillman said he expects to ask Manderfield to consider Johnson’s youth and lack of experience. Johnson is expected to graduate, Hillman added. “Holt High School has been phenomenal,” he said, “in the way they’ve provided support to Brett and the other people involved.”

Holt drops tough one HOLT — The Holt girls varsity team lost a tough 1-0 match to Mason, in a back-and-forth game marked by physical play and tough defense. Mason scored the only goal of the match mid way through the second half on a shot that found its way into the upper left side of the goal. The match was evenly played through much of the game, with Mason dominating early, and Holt controlling the play for a large portion of the second half. Both teams played very strong defense. Holt’s experienced defenders limited Mason to just four shots on goal, while Holt managed only three shots on goal. The loss dropped the Rams overall record to 6-2. Holt’s first conference game, scheduled for this past Tuesday, was postponed due to poor field conditions. The game has been rescheduled for Monday, May 16, at the Holt soccer stadium.

FIRST FRIDAYS Where can you find open doors and awesome specials all over town? Holt’s goaltender Kori Ramirez stops a goal attempt by Mason. She had three saves. Courtesy Kevin Ramirez In a dominating performance from start to finish, the Holt girls junior varsity soccer team defeated Mason 3-0. Holt’s Gabrielle Gomez led the scoring with two goals, including a far post shot half way into the first half, assisted by Terese Dragonetti. Holt Sophomore Lauren strong made the score 2-0

with an unassisted goal at the 18 minute mark or the second half. “I told the girls before the game we will not lose because we get outworked,” said coach John Conner. “We played physical, we won the ball, and we anticipated better. I’m very happy with our effort.”

HOLT — Never mind the fact that Okemos has been the most dominant boys lacrosse team in the Lansing area over the past decade.

Holt defeated Okemos for the first time in it’s programs history last season, and they made sure they weren’t going to lose those bragging rights this year. Senior Skyler Dutkiewicz had two goals and two

assists, and freshman Paul Schlau added two goals of his own as Holt defeated Okemos 12-6 in a CAAC matchup on April 21. “We got them for the first time last season, and now, No. 2 feels pretty good as well,” Holt coach Mike Van Antwerp said. “They have great tradition, great players and great coaching, so we’re just happy to get a big win against a great program here tonight.” The two teams started off the game evenly matched, trading goals for much of the first half. Holt’s Alex Hrapkiewicz scored one of his two goals right before halftime, giving the Rams a 5-4 lead at the break. Okemos senior Kalis Greer opened up the second half with a goal to tie the score at 5-5, but then Holt opened up an offensive explosion, scoring four goals in the final seven minutes of the third quarter to take a commanding 9-6 lead. “It seemed like we were just playing a little timid early on, but we came out and really started clicking after halftime,” said Holt senior captain Jamie Hay, who added a goal in the victory. “We were quicker on our feet, got to balls faster, and just played smarter as a group.”

“We got them for the first time last season, and now, No. 2 feels pretty good as well.” MIKE VAN ANTWERP

Holt coach

Erick Sundstrom, Mark Hildenbrand and Hrapkiewicz all added goals in the fourth quarter as the Rams held Okemos scoreless for the final 17 minutes of the game. Wilson Whybrew had two goals and two assists, and Greer added two goals of his own for Okemos. Tommy McKee and Drew Dyer each added a goal for Holt in the victory. “This is one of those games that we had circled on our calendar at the start of the season,” Hay said. “We still have some stuff we need to work on, but today, we showed how we can play when we’re at our best.” The Rams followed that victory with two more big league wins. They defeated crosstown rival, East Lansing 10-6 on April 23, and then cruised to an 11-4 win over Haslett/Williamston on April 26.

Diane L. Dodge

Lansing September 11, 1948 -April 22, 2011 It is with great sadness that our family marks the passing of Diane Lynn Dodge, who died at the age of 62 after a heroic 11 year battle with ovarian cancer. She will be sorely missed by her many friends and sons, Charlie Dodge and Ben (Tristen) Dodge; grandchildren, Wil, Owen and Harper Dodge; and puppies, Puggie and Sparky. She is also survived by her sisters, Patty (Dale) Kikendall and Tracy (Randy) Ellifrits; brothers, Greg (Penny) Hinkle, Michael Hinkle and Mike (Sherrie) Jones; and stepmother, Eleanor Berning. Also surviving are her aunt, Thelma and cousin, Eugene Merritt; brother-in-law Bill Dodge and family; sisters-in-law, Susan Bennett and family, Carol Dodge; mother-in-law Jane Dodge. Diane was preceded in death by the love of her life, best friend and husband, John Dodge; parents, Lloyd and Naomi Hinkle; and father-in-law Howard Dodge. Diane and John owned the Indian Head Motel in Williamston, Dodge City, the Dodge House, Eddie O’Flynn’s and Sneekers Restaurant where she was the ultimate hostess. She also worked at Uncle John’s Pancake House, Bill Knapp’s and the Village Market in the early days. Diane enjoyed the monthly Twofers club and was a member of the MSU Rebounders and Downtown Coaches Club and an avid supporter of Michigan State University. She volunteered at Sparrow Hospital and WKAR and was a board member at Peckham Industries for many years. Diane spent much of her time over the past 11 years at her home in Canada on Lake Huron enjoying her Canadian friends and beautiful sunsets. It was a very healing place for her where she watched her grandchildren grow and her puppies thrive. Diane loved dolphins and spent many weeks each year on Hilton Head Island and in Florida where she could watch them. Diane had many mantras and sayings she lived by which strengthened her will and helped her fight her toughest battles over the years. You may have heard her say or seen posted somewhere near her "Carpe Diem" or "Believe". A celebration of her life will be held at Hawk Hollow Golf Course on Chandler Rd. in Bath at 11:00 am on Thursday, April 28th; luncheon to follow. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the John and Diane Dodge Memorial Endowment Fund for the Greater Lansing Food Bank in c/o the Capital Region Community Foundation, 6035 Executive Drive, Suite 104, Lansing, MI 48911. The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home, East Lansing. Online condolences may be made at XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
